Waterboarding has been part of the training for some of our troops.

I fail to see how terrorists are privileged to be treated better than our troops. So I don't have a big problem with upholding a system which does not grant greater privileges to terrorists.

I never had to be waterboarded, but I got to be harassed, starved at times, sleep-deprivation a lot, dehydrated at times, put in a gas chamber, etc.

So no, I don't really have a problem with a judge if they ruled that you can do the same things to terrorists that we do to our own forces.

Trump’s getting closer to flipping the Ninth Circuit to a majority of judges appointed by Republican presidents. Of the 27 current Ninth Circuit judges, 16 were appointed by Democrats and 11 by Republicans.

Still, the impact of his appointments can be felt in a narrow majority. Additional Republican appointees, for instance, could moderate majority opinions or write dissents that may prompt review from the Supreme Court.

Also, it’s more likely that randomly drawn en banc sittings—a larger group of judges that rehears some cases decided by a three-judge panel of the same court—will be majority Republican. En banc is the last possible stop before the Supreme Court.

I agree completely about the 9th Circus. And, they can't realistically hold en banc hearings to second guess every conservative ruling. As I understand it, the normal procedure is that every case is heard by a three judge panel. The odds of those three judge panels now including 2 conservatives are way up.

The left will go shopping for a more liberal Appellate Court somewhere.

Plus there are 2 GOP judges who've declared they want to go senior status. IIRC, one specified on or before (I forget which) Dec 31st of this year and the other I don't think specified when, so I assume as soon as replacement confirmed. ETA: Plus, O'Scannlain's (GOP) seat has been open since 2016 Dec 31.

It's on the way, but still a ways from the goal post. I'm hopeful that Trump will get a second term, and really keep this silver ball rolling. Hopefully SCOTUS will see more favorable changes as well; it's about time.

Agree. The court appointments, at all levels, are crucial after decades of liberalism.

Some of you, in your role as voters, may not agree with some of Trump's actions, or may not even like him at all. Still, you should vote for him for the reason that his court appointments are now proven and are sterling, no matter what. AND, there is an increasing probability that Ruth Bader Ginsberg, former head counsel of the ACLU and the worst liberal on SCOTUS, will either die or retire in the next 5 years. If you want Bernie or Pocahontas (or worse yet, Kamala Harris) to choose who replaces Ginsberg, then don't vote for Trump.

Also, keep in mind that in many cases, some actions Trump has taken are immediately litigated by the ACLU and other liberal groups. This is part of what they call "the resistance".

I'm not too worried about other stuff Trump is doing, I ONLY wish he packs as many court judicial positions as he possibly can. Time to turn this steamy cat-box around, and make those libs suffer as we have for so long.

The 9th will continue to be the thorn under the blanket for Trump. They exist to block any Trump exec orders.

It would take another 25 years of Trump to clear out the communists there. We will get no relief from them as the next Presidente will stuff them back full of socialists.

Splitting that court is the only real world solution. I see no effort to do that.

It's a "real world solution" only if the right players are in the Senate and White House. If the 9th is split, and it should be, there will be a bunch of new seats on each bench for the incumbents in D.C. to fill. If the Dems control the Senate and White House at that time, then both new courts will be stuffed with liberals.
