Supreme Court Justices Receive Circuit Assignments, Amy Coney Barrett’s Includes Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana

Circuit assignments do indeed matter, as will be explained herein.

Each Supreme Court justice recently received their circuit assignments. Justice Amy Coney Barrett received the Seventh Circuit, which includes the states of Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana.

Justice Barrett was a Seventh Circuit judge for three years, so perhaps it’s not surprising that she has been assigned that circuit as a member of SCOTUS.

Circuit assignments are not something irrelevant. They matter significantly, especially in a time when the president and his lawyers are contesting the election results in several states. One prime example was when Justice Samuel Alito ordered the separation of mail-in ballots that arrived after Election Day in Pennsylvania. Alito was able to do this because the Third Circuit is one of his assignments—the circuit in which Pennsylvania is located. If a liberal justice were overseeing the Third District, he or she might’ve ignored the Pennsylvania GOP’s emergency application on the matter.

The federal court system is made up of district courts, appellate courts, and the U.S. Supreme Court. After a case has made its way through one of the nation’s 94 trial courts, a party may appeal to the circuit court in their jurisdiction. The image below helpfully outlines what the circuit boundaries are and identifies them by circuit number.

[…] [T]here are 13 federal circuits.

The First through Eleventh Circuit courts are self-explanatory. The District of Columbia Circuit, given its location, handles some of the most high-profile and controversial political appeals in the country. The Federal Circuit, as the court’s website notes, is unique in its nationwide jurisdiction and the kinds of claims it handles:

[…] It has nationwide jurisdiction in a variety of subject areas, including international trade, government contracts, patents, trademarks, certain money claims against the United States government, federal personnel, veterans’ benefits, and public safety officers’ benefits claims. Appeals to the court come from all federal district courts, the United States Court of Federal Claims, the United States Court of International Trade, and the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. The court also reviews certain administrative agency decisions, including those from the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board, the Boards of Contract Appeals, the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, the Congressional Office of Compliance, the Government Accountability Office Personnel Appeals Board, and the U.S. International Trade Commission.

The now conservative-leaning Supreme Court will be acutely interesting and relevant for years to come. This is true regardless of whether Joe Biden or Donald Trump occupy the White House. The political balance of the court has shifted, there will likely be continued congressional gridlock, and one side will have their confidence in the entire political system shattered if the other side has their man in the Oval Office. What a time to be alive.

Jon Ossoff’s Endorsement by Giffords Proves He is an Anti-Gun Stooge

Georgia Voters Who Care About the Second Amendment Should Reject Both Democrat Candidates

Now that former Vice President Joe Biden is the presumptive president-elect, conservatives are busy re-grouping.

Although the presidential election appears to be sorted out, electors still have to cast their ballots on December 14. On top of that, there’s still unsettled business in Georgia.

While a 50-50 split by no means guarantees that gun control will be passed at will, this puts Democrats one step closer towards implementing their anti-gun fantasies.

The case for Perdue is pretty simple. He’s a solid immigration patriot and a staunch Second Amendment supporter. He can be counted on to keep the Left in check.

Ossoff is currently endorsed by Giffords, one of the fastest growing civilian disarmament lobbies in America. This organization was founded by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and has been increasingly active in promoting anti-Second Amendment politicians over the last few years.

Giffords’ endorsement of Ossoff makes sense. According to Ossoff’s platform, he plans on prohibiting the sales of semiautomatic rifles and “high capacity” magazines. Not to mention, he wants to check off every other item on the gun grabber checkbox by supporting red flag confiscation orders, universal background checks, tighten the so-called “gun show loophole”, and implement licensing for semiautomatic rifles and handguns that millions of Americans already own.

Ossoff’s anti-gun endorsement list is quite diverse. AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News called attention to the fact that “Ossoff is also endorsed by the Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety. He is also endorsed by Everytown’s subsidiary gun control group, Moms Demand Action.”

When Gabby Giffords’ organization gave Ossoff their endorsement, they were very explicit about the intention behind endorsing Ossoff, revealing that they are “working to unseat an NRA-backed incumbent.”

An Ossoff victory, along with Raphael Warnock winning his race against Kelly Loeffler, would be big victories for Gun Control Inc. The anti-gun lobby is hungry and they’ll need a Senate majority in order to expand federal gun control.

January 5, 2021 is the pivotal date that will determine the balance of the U.S. Senate. Georgia voters have clear choices in Perdue and Loeffler. A vote for Ossoff and Warnock is a green light for Second Amendment infringements.
