Disaster in CA - Trump has flipped the 9th Circuit

Trump has flipped the 9th Circuit — and some new judges are causing a ‘shock wave’
When President Trump ticks off his accomplishments since taking office, he frequently mentions his aggressive makeover of a key sector of the federal judiciary — the circuit courts of appeal, where he has appointed 51 judges to lifetime jobs in three years.

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.


Oh, the horror!

You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.

One could perhaps market 'safe spaces' ....like the bomb shelters in the 50s - 60s.

To be fair, if you read the article Trump hasn't entirely flipped the court:

Democratic appointees still make up the majority of active judges — 16 to 13. But the court also has judges on “senior status” who continue to sit on panels that decide cases. Senior status rank gives judges more flexibility but allows them to continue to work, even full time.

Of the senior judges who will be deciding cases on “merits” panels — reading briefs and issuing rulings — 10 are Republicans and only three are Democratic appointees, Smith said.

You didn't expect a court made up of liberals to be fair did you?
