The thing that is the most corrupt about judges who write legislation from the bench is that they readily accept Barack Obama’s Executive Orders but when President Trump exercises the same methods, the judges rule that Obama’s policy cannot be overturned by another president.
These judges should be thrown off the bench and an impartial judge should take their place. In less than 2 1/2 years, judges have issued 40 injunctions against Trump, while in the same amount of time, judges issued just 2 injunctions against him.
This is why it is so critical that Trump wins reelection, so he can finish shaping the court system, particularly the Supreme Court.
The Washington Times reported last week –
Attorney General William P. Barr on Tuesday railed against federal courts issuing nationwide injunctions blocking President Trump from implementing his policies, saying they wield “unprecedented power.”
In a speech before the American Law Institute, Mr. Barr said such injunctions block politicians of all stripes from enacting the voters’ will.
“One judge can, in effect, cancel the policy with the stroke of the pen,” he said. “No official in the United States government can exercise that kind of nationwide power, with the sole exception of the president. And the Constitution subjects him to nationwide election, among other constitutional checks, as a prerequisite to wielding that power.”
Mr. Barr pointed the finger squarely at the American Law Institute for contributing to the problem. He blamed a 2010 commentary it published saying individual cases are the same as aggregate litigation because in both cases the relief would apply to one or several individuals.
That’s wrong, Mr. Barr said, because it ignores prior legal precedent.
The Times reports [emphasis added] –
Since Mr. Trump took office, federal courts have issued 37 nationwide injunctions against his policies, Mr. Barr said. During President Barack Obama’s first two years, the courts issued two injunctions and only 27 were issued during the 20th century, according to Justice Department data.
