Report: Liberal judges have a meltdown after Trump turns the 9th Circuit red

Trump just got another big win!

The left is losing one major battle after another against Trump.

They’ve lost on the Russia witch hunt, the impeachment sham and they’re about to lose big time in November.

But to make matters even worse they’re about to lose their precious 9th Circuit court.

The 9th circuit court has been a well-known thorn in Trump’s side, repeatedly blocking his policies on asylum, birth control, and border policies.

That’s all about to change now folks because Trump has filled the once liberal court with so many conservative judges that now it’s flipped to the right.

In few places has the effect been felt more powerfully than in the sprawling 9th Circuit, which covers California and eight other states. Because of Trump’s success in filling vacancies, the San Francisco-based circuit, long dominated by Democratic appointees, has suddenly shifted to the right, with an even more pronounced tilt expected in the years ahead.

Trump has now named 10 judges to the 9th Circuit — more than one-third of its active judges — compared with seven appointed by President Obama over eight years.

“Trump has effectively flipped the circuit,” said 9th Circuit Judge Milan D. Smith Jr., an appointee of President George W. Bush. [LA Times]

Of course, the left-leaning judges there are already flipping out over this predicament and are specifically targeting former federal prosecutor Daniel P. Collins, claiming that he’s “bulldozing” through the court system.

Collins also moved quickly to challenge rulings by his new colleagues, calling for review of five decisions by three-judge panels, and some of the calls came before Collins even had been assigned to his first panel, judges said.

Active judges vote on the calls behind the scenes, and the public becomes aware of a failed effort only when dissents are later filed by the judges who favored reconsideration. Judges said it was unprecedented for a new jurist to try to overturn so many decisions in such a short period of time. The court has so far rejected most of Collins’ calls.

“Collins has definitely bulldozed his way around here already in a short time,” one 9th Circuit judge said. “Either he doesn’t care or doesn’t realize that he has offended half the court already.” [LA Times]

This is yet another promise from Trump’s 2016 campaign trail that’s he’s successfully fulfilled.

The Democrats are going to be screwed for years to come with not only the 9th circuit turning red but the Supreme Court as well.
