Ninth Circus: Statutory rape no big whoop

From Moonbattery:

The latest from San Franfreakshow’s Ninth Circus Court of Appeals:

On Tuesday, the court decided that Alberto Quintero-Salazar – a Mexican national and legal resident of the U.S. – could not be deported on the basis of a sex crime he committed in 1998, namely illegal intercourse between an adult over 21 and a youth under 16. According to the court, adults taking sexual advantage of a minor (so long as they have the “consent” that minors are legally unable to provide) are not guilty of a crime of “moral turpitude,” which is needed to subject legal U.S. residents to deportation.

Congrats to the militant degenerates who make up this court: they’ve managed to advance both the Mexican invasion and the sexual exploitation of children — two favorite progressive causes — in a single misruling.

Judge Sidney Thomas wrote for the majority that statutory rape “is not inherently base, vile or depraved.” Oh yes it is, Thomas. And so are moonbats like you. 

This is great news for guys like R. Kelly and Scott Ritter, whose mottos are “as long as there’s grass on that field, play ball!”  For the rest of non-depraved and normal America, I’d recommend not raising your kids in San Fransicko.

Ninth Circus Court: Shell can’t drill for oil, since it might piss off polar bears

From FNC:

A federal appeals court has ordered Shell Oil to stop its exploratory drilling program off the north coast of Alaska at least until a hearing in August.

The order, issued Thursday by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, comes after the federal Minerals Management Service in February approved Shell’s offshore exploration plan for the Beaufort Sea.

“Vessels currently located in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas shall cease all operations performed in furtherance of that program, but need not depart the area,” the order said.

Opponents contend that the Minerals Management Service approved Shell’s plan without fully considering that a large spill would harm marine mammals, including bowhead and beluga whales. They say polar bears could also be harmed, and they question whether cleaning up a sizable spill would even be possible in the icy waters.

As Van Helsing notes:

A hearing is planned for mid August in San Francisco to decided if Shell can go forward and provide us with some oil, after bidding $39 million for the offshore leases, and blowing who knows how much on court costs.

If not, no problem: we can just keep paying through the nose to buy oil from Arabs, who will spend the proceeds on madrasahs and weapons programs. Hopefully the polar bears and beluga whales will appreciate it.
