    ... or perform harder checks on the judicial branch in general.

    It seems as if the courts are running wild and doing whatever they want.

    Particularly, the Hawaiian and Californian judges are overturning executive order after executive order, but obviously are part of the democratic 9th circuit.

    You would be overloading the 10th Circuit (Denver) if you changed the 9th.

    Having said that, Montana and Arizona should indeed be moved into the 10th.

    That doesn't solve the issue of Democrat Hawaii and California judges, however.

    Many suggest the 9th be split up into a new circuit.

    No, it's time for the House to start impeaching federal judges who continually legislate from the bench.

    you mean only appoint judges who were bloggers for the NRA and were never in a courtroom?

    that type of check?

    That's been discussed for a long time, but no movement has ever been made on it.

    They could call the new one the 69th circuit, because it's appeals always go down....
