Excellent stuff. I agree with your plan. Unfortunately the argument against the plan is likely to be lack of resources for vetting and the need to get cops on duty as soon as possible.

Great episode Glen, you are a genius. Finding a way to get rid of these unqualified judges. Kavanaugh for one is guilty of perjury. We really need to flip the senate and vote out the evil dictator. You give us hope for the future thank you.

Can a criminal get an appeal based on a judge being rated as unqualified? If a judge is in the unpacking in January, can that judges rulings be qualifying for appeals based on them being 'unpacked'. I'm Canadian but very curious how the damage Trump and or Barr has done will be undone and how long it will take, not to mention what long standing consequences there will be.
