9th Circuit Court of Appeals

America's worst court, San Francisco's 9th Circuit, abolishes the War Memorial Cross

On Friday of last week, the infamous 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco - the nation's most leftist and ineffective appeals court - continued its anti-Christian jihad as it refused to rehear the case of the Mount Soledad War Memorial Cross being removed by various liberal state and federal judges.  This beautiful 29-foot cross sits on public land on a mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean which has been seen by countless millions over the decades.  It was dedicated in 1954 in honor of Korean War veterans. 
 
The equally infamous American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) - a rabidly anti-Christian organization - has been fighting to get this war memorial cross removed for over a decade.  The ACLU and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals have been working in tandem to rid God and Christianity from the public square.
 

Liberal 9th Circuit Court approves of Big Brother

It is almost comical, if not so very sad, how the 9th United States Circuit Court of Appeals almost always gets their decisions wrong.  That court is, by far, the court with the most decisions overturned by the United States Supreme Court.  Their recent invasion of privacy decision was just their latest bad decision.
 
Adam Cohen in the August 25, 2010 edition of "Time" magazine reported that with the San Francisco-based appeals court's recent bad decision on privacy, "Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go.  This doesn't violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway — and no reasonable expectation that the government isn't tracking your movements."

So now the people in the states under this scary court's jurisdiction  --  California and 8 other Western states  --  are susceptible to having the government monitor them anytime it well pleases, without them having to get a search warrant.  If this isn't something that both liberals and conservatives can unite against, there hardly will be anything to unite the two ends of the political spectrum.

BREAKING! 9th Circuit Rules AGAINST Newdow

In a hopeful but unexpected legal decision decided yesterday, The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, the same court that ruled in Newdow's favor in 2002 when he sued to make The Pledge of Allegiance illegal since it incorporated the words, "Under God," this time ruled that;  "The Pledge is a patriotic excercise and is not an endorsement of religion."  more....

Judge Stephen Reinhardt who ruled in favor of Newdow in the original case, was the lone dissenter in this one. Judge Dorothy Nelson, a Jimmy Carter appointee, who strenuously dissented against Hawaii's decision to make Good Friday a legal holiday (that measure was passed), cast the deciding vote with Judge Carlos Bea. In a separate ruling, the court also upheld the words "In God We Trust" on the national currency, according to Dan Levine of Law.com.

Michael Newdow had unleashed a flurry of lawsuits against everybody, including this writer, one of the first to reveal (in a story) that Newdow had no legal standing to file the suit on behalf of his daughter, since his daughter did not live with him and that he never married the child's mother.

Newdow, who had a lawsuit pending in the U.S. Supreme Court, sued over that article with a complaint that I had influenced the Supreme Court to rule against him. He had filed a 'libel' case that went on for six years. It was eventually ruled that Newdow had not been libeled, ending that case. The Thomas More Law Center defended me pro-bono and won the case once and for all.
