In an interview with the Washington Examiner Wednesday, President Trump expressed interest in splitting the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals after it has repeatedly overruled his actions in questionable ways.
But my advice to President Trump is to not just split the 9th Circuit, but rather to dissolve it altogether.
Why? The Left is very adept at weaponizing language and government to achieve their political ends.
What do I mean by ‘weaponizing?’ – simply put, turning institutions or conventions that ought to be neutral into offensive tools for implementing their agenda. In my video show last week, I covered some of the weaponization of language.
As for the weaponization of government and more specifically the Courts, we have seen over the last 40 or so years, the Left has repeatedly achieved political victories in the Courts which stand in clear conflict with the repeated democratic results of elections – such as on the issue of gay marriage – or with any known constitutional reality – such as inventing a right to privacy to invent a right to abortion – among other transgressions. (And it is for this reason I have advocated the Right more aggressively use the Courts as opposed to the ballot box to achieve victories…)
But to the point, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is currently the most egregious weaponization of government the Left currently wields, and as such, simply ought to be outright dissolved.
