The Ninth Circus out on the Left Coast denied the Justice Department’s request on Sunday for an immediate reinstatement of President Donald Trump’s ban on accepting certain travelers and all refugees. These politically motivated doctrinaire ideologues that custom dictates we must refer to as judges do not follow the basic instructions for their job. It is not to make policy or to judge the correctness of policy as set by the other two branches of government. It is to determine whether or not the actions of the other two branches follow the law. This is the exact opposite of what the Seattle based U.S. District Judge James Robart and the three judges of the Über liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has done.
According to the Congressional Research Service Federal immigration law includes Section 1182(f), which states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate”
This makes it abundantly clear that President Trump’s Executive Order concerning a temporary ban on refugees in general and specifically from certain countries known to be either in a state of domestic war or previously declared as state sponsors of terrorism. Obviously the “So-Called” judges are not even pretending to rule according to statute. They are countermanding an order by the chief executive of the United States to an executive department and thus interfering in the operation of another branch of government for political purposes.
The argument that this is imposing a religious ban which is unconstitutional is not based on the Constitution.
The original, unamended Constitution contains only one explicit reference to religion. This is the Article VI ban on religious tests for “any office or public trust under the United States.” Even though there have been many court cases testing the relationship between church and state they have all dealt with the First Amendment no establishment clause and none have involved the religious test ban. It clearly applies to federal office holders. That has never been questioned and even the Progressives and their Living Document ACLU attorneys have never before tried to stretch it to fit the revolutionary cause De jure.
Beside which the President’s travel ban is obviously not a religiously based ban since people of all religions are banned and the citizens of the most populous Islamic countries are not.
In Chicago we used to look at the courthouses filled with crooked judges and fixit lawyers and say, “It may say justice on the outside but that doesn’t mean there’s any on the inside.” After eight years of the Outfit running the country and 28 years of the Progressives packing the courts with political hacks this is what we have. A judicial system that legislates from the bench protected by life-time tenure and a nation habituated to following their every whim.
That twin headed bird of prey, the government party has been rebuked and rejected by the newly motivated member of the country party with their voter revolution. Now they mount their three pronged counter revolution: one, the Courts to overturn the actions of our President; two the legislatures to talk everything to death, obstruct, obstruct, obstruct; and three the liberal fascists out in the street burning property and beating anyone who disagrees with them.
The lawlessness of the American Judicial system is on open display and it it isn’t pretty. It reminds me of the politicization of the IRS, the Justice Department, the EPA and every other bureau of the Obama regime.
The Progressive foe our President Trump faces is like the Hydra, a monster in Greek mythology. It had many heads and every time someone would cut off one of them, two more heads would grow out of the stump. So too this insidious rot will attack from many quarters. It will shift and change morphing from this to that trying to never appear to be what it really is a generations long attempt to subvert limited government, personal freedom, and economic opportunity and substitute it with central planning and the authoritarianism that always requires.
Don’t fooled by the biased courts, the perpetually re-elected political hacks who confirm political hacks to the bench, or their propaganda arm the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC cartel. This fight isn’t over, or at least it shouldn’t be. According to Article III, Section 2 of the Constitution Congress has the power and the authority to control the jurisdiction of the courts. In fact it clearly states the jurisdiction exists, “with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make.” If Congress had the backbone it could trim the sails of the judicial man-of-war as it attacks our liberties and common sense. Keep your eye on the prize. Support the President with calls to your representatives and your prayers.
Keep the Faith. Keep the peace. We shall overcome.
