Ninth Circuit Stays Extremely Liberal because of Rubio and Scott

Senators Marco Rubio and Tim Scott shot down a conservative nominee to the Ninth Circuit appeals court on Thursday whom even liberals called qualified for the bench, citing college-era political comments, energizing Democrats, and creating a new line of attack against the confirmations of dozens of other judicial picks, including Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.

Ryan Bounds, an Oregon federal prosecutor who clerked for Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain on the Ninth Circuit, had an impressive array of credentials that impressed people on the left and the right. Even the left-wing American Bar Association (ABA) unanimously voted to rate Bounds as “qualified” for the Ninth Circuit after they reviewed his full record, showing that even those firmly aligned with liberal priorities acknowledge that college-era political riffs do not disqualify someone from a federal judgeship.

But what should have been a historic moment for the Trump administration and the Republican Party to nominate a qualified judge ended in a failed nomination due to Rubio and Scott’s efforts to take down a conservative judge due to misgivings about the nominee’s writings in a college newspaper. Scott privately told Rubio on the Wednesday before the vote that he had concerns about Bounds’ “racially insensitive” writings in the Stanford Daily, a conservative college newspaper, back in 1995.

Now President Trump needs to find a replacement for Bounds since it seems that Scott and Rubio to want the extremely liberal 9th Circuit to stay that way…extremely liberal.

  1. The 9th circuit like all courts need not be left or right. They are not political or they should not be. That then senators dare politicize our courts and in turn we have a mess of a judicial system! This is proof that politics are out of control in everything they shouldn’t be and that the senate needs term limits and oversight. I don’t trust our judicial system one bit. Tell me, how many judge take payoffs to remove children from their families? Answer is way way to many. How many actually listen to the person in their court and not have a bias ruling? In the past 15 years I have been in court on a variety of cases the only ones that have an ounce of fairness are where a jury is involved. The prosecutor does his best to scare people into plea bargains to get the guilty pay off and the jail time. It’s a sham and people need to wake up before this happens to someone they love. They ruin lives and families in the name of justice what does that say? I’m fed up personally and will fight this demonic overthrow until it is complete or I die.

  2. Sorry to have to use the term “TURN-COATS” regarding Rubio & Scott. Or, should I call them “RINOs” ? Maybe “OBSTRUCTIONISTS” ? Wait….that is the term that describes Democrats.
