So much for the idea that elections have consequences.
In upholding a law that forced people to buy health insurance, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in 2012:
"Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation’s elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices."That marked the first time in my memory that the court admitted its powers are limited by the people.
On November 8, 2016, the people of 30 states and the second congressional district in Maine decided, among other things, that we should protect our borders.
They voted that way despite being called xenophobic, Islamophobic, and deplorable.
This was a policy decision. Not reviewable. The judges involved in this should be impeached for exceeding their authority.
There is no way every single district judge in America has the power or authority to make a policy decision affecting the national security of 320 million Americans.
The Supreme Court should make that perfectly clear. It should limit only to the D.C. Circuit the power of a temporary restraining order of this magnitude.
Indeed, only the Supreme Court itself should be allowed to issue such a TRO.
We voted for President Trump.
It is well past the time for the Democratic Party, its rioters, and its henchmen on the court got on with business of a peaceful transition of power.
I get that my vote for Trump upset the Establishment.
But they need to get over themselves already. Placing my safety in jeopardy to appease the George Soros worldwide, communist government is beyond the pale.
We are in a constitutional crisis. Only the Supreme Court can avert it by doing the hardest thing a man can do.
Voluntarily ceding power.
Elections had consequences in 2012.
They must have consequences today.
"Trump the Establishment" is an account on how the Establishment used the media to stop the Trump Train in the general election by constantly badgering him on personal issues, often petty. But Trump prevailed based on his abilities as a CEO, and his stances on the real issues of the economy and national security, which I also delve into.
