No political system is perfect, and America is no exception. An independent judiciary is absolutely important to the running of our democracy, yet what happens if some of the judiciary are unquestionably biased? Case in point is the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, chock full of liberal judges. And President Trump wants to do something about it.
In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the makeup and power of the 9th Circuit, in which 18 out of 25 judges were appointed by Democrat presidents. Anytime left wingers want a favorable decision from a federal court, the 9th Circuit is at the top of their list. And with jurisdiction over nine West Coast states and two US territories, their reach is far indeed. What’s more, 80% of the decisions by the 9th Circuit have been overturned by the Supreme Court. That’s a shameful record. Is it time to do something about the 9th Circuit?
