At Vdare by James Fulford --
Many years ago, sportswriter/novelist Dan Jenkins referred to the West Coast/Hollywood as the “Left Coast”—because if you stand on Texas and look north, that’s what it is.
Well, the Ninth Circuit Court of appeals covers mostly the Left
Coast, as you can see in the map above, and they are incredibly liberal,
especially on immigration, because of the two kinds of left-wing voters
out there—Californian and Portlandian et cetera whites, and minorities.
(The normal people states have less population, and thus fewer
judges–California has 53 Congressional Districts, Montana has one.)
Because of the Senatorial veto
on judges in a Senator’s state, even a conservative president can’t
nominate conservative judges to the Ninth Circuit. They’re all liberals.
And their rulings are so bad, they keep getting reversed by the Supreme
This latest one features a (literally) unprecedented attack on the
President who issued the travel ban. Unprecedented as in “No judge has
ever done anything like this since we’ve been keeping records.”
