Courts, California, and the Wall: Ted Cruz is Having a Great Week


Sam Thomas:

Last week I wrote about Ted Cruz’ support in the battle against religious discrimination in Missouri, and my colleague Autumn Price told you Wednesday about Cruz’ plan to make El Chapo pay for Trump’s border wall. Apparently the Senator from Texas wasn’t finished making headlines, as he’s now floating a plan to break up the troublesome 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The 9th Circuit, which boasts a whopping 18 judges appointed by Democrats, has seemingly thrown judicial independence to the wind. Besides being the most consistently overruled court in the nation, the 9th circuit is not even pretending to be impartial and nonpartisan in their dealings with President Trump. As Zachary Werrell wrote yesterday, “the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is…the most egregious weaponization of government the Left currently wields.” Apparently, Ted Cruz has had enough.

Yesterday on The Jack Riccardi Show suggested that Congress may need to considering breaking up the 9th Circuit, a process that would start in the Senate Judiciary Committee. The issue stems partly from the fact that California, the left’s liberal wonderland, is destroying the 9th Circuit for the other states within its jurisdiction. Cruz pointed out that those states are “weighed down” by California’s influence on the court.

“California has a ton of very liberal, left-wing judges that they put on the 9th Circuit. I think a lot of the other Western states would love to be freed from that corrosive left-wing influence.”

Judicial activism has become a cancer within our political system, one which is incredibly difficult to deal with.

In the swamp long enough to know where the creatures of the black lagoon hang out. Serious about trying to keep political promises. An alpha male that the RINOs dont much care for. I hoped Cruz would mend fences and join forces, add Lee to the mix and “LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE”. The tax plan, sounds a bit like Cruz on the campaign trail, fill out your taxes on a postcard.
Trump needs to have a well crafted speech, get the people behind him prime time in a firm calm confident manner tell the voters what he is trying to accomplish, and damn shut the government down if needed, show the opposition who is President.
Media talking heads can explode all over cable tv, which is dying because of cost.

Lets remember that he Notorious 9th Circus Court is the nations most oeverturned court I mean some idiot judge blocking the cutting off of trumps defunding of sancary cities here is another idiot judge who needs their gavel broken and disrobed they area disgrace to the bench
