Congress may rein in rogue judges



Obama appointed, and a Democrat Senate confirmed, 260 district judges. Another five were confirmed under Republicans. Many Obama judges abuse their authority by playing anti-administration politics with ruling that are overturned on appeal.

As Chief Justice, John Roberts heads the judiciary, but he is too afraid to rein these rogue judges in.

Congress may.

The Hill reported, "Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) on Wednesday introduced legislation that would prevent district judges from placing nationwide injunctions on federal policy changes.

"The two Republicans, both close allies of President Trump, noted the bill follows a decision from a federal judge in California Monday that reinstated a ban on implementing a new policy that would curtail migrants’ ability to apply for asylum at the southern border. An appeals court on Wednesday narrowed that injunction to just Arizona and California, the two border states within its jurisdiction, allowing the administration to apply the rule in New Mexico and Texas.

The story was not updated, but Fox News reported, "In a major win for the Trump administration, the Supreme Court issued an order late Wednesday ending all injunctions that had blocked the White House's ban on asylum for anyone trying to enter the U.S. by traveling through a third country, such as Mexico, without seeking protection there."

It is unusual for the Supreme Court to step in like this, but this is the third time it has in Trump's presidency.

The first time was to lift an injunction imposed by an Obama judge in Hawaii. He blocked a moratorium on visas from six war torn countries, erroneously calling it a Muslim ban. That was in 2017.

The second time was in July when the high court lifted a ban by an Obama judge on building the wall.

Now this.

If Roberts won't get his house in order, Congress will.

These rulings are political and therefore unethical. When Republicans regain the House, they should impeach Obama judges who exceed their authority. Let the Senate then put them on trial.

    Your talking about Republicans. They will do their best impression of a potted plant.

  3. The clear assumption here was good Republicans. New, Trumpian Republicans. Not the crappy RINOs we've been accustomed to.

  4. That bill will not get one democrat vote. They know that the liberal judges rule that way, not the conservative ones. Roberts was so wrong when he tried to snow us and told us there were no such things as Obama judges or Clinton judges.

  5. Congress should create a '13th appears court'- gerrymander it to cover just LA, SFO, up to Portland & Seattle and throw in Hawaii; leave all other regular part in the 9th.

  6. Politico reports that Israel placed fake cellphone towers (StingRays) around the White House to spy on President Trump.

    "The Trump administration did not rebuke the Israeli government, and there were no consequences for Israel’s behavior."

    Reminds me how Israel celebrated 9/11

    2. Nonny: "Reminds me how Israel celebrated 9/11."

      How does one be "reminded" of something that occurred only his/her/its fevered imagination? Or perhaps Nonny is confusing Israelis with those Arabs who passed out candies to celebrate the massive pigua.
      We Israelis were as shocked and heart-broken as the Americans.

    5. According to a FOX News report from December 2001, 60 Israelis were apprehended or detained after September 11, with most deported, and a total of 140 Israelis were arrested and detained in all of 2001 by federal authorities. That report claimed that the arrests, ostensibly including the “Dancing Israelis,” were in relation to an investigation of “an organized [Israeli] intelligence gathering operation designed to ‘penetrate government facilities.’”

      More fake news LOL! If I don't agree with the facts its fake news! Gotta pity the readers here they're as clueless as the snowflakes.

      BTW search YOUR soul fool. How is exposing Israeli spies 'jew bashing'? Your just like the liberals for if you criticize blacks your racist.

    6. Stalin would be envious once he saw all the useful idiots here. They just can't handle the facts.

      Fact: Mossad was using a front group in the weeks leading up to 9/11. Its all in the FBI report; a document none of you will read since its contents might frighten you.

      The FBI presence at the Urban Moving Systems search site drew the attention of the local media and was later reported on both television and in the local press.

      A former Urban Moving Systems employee later contacted the Newark Division with information indicating that he had quit his employment with Urban Moving Systems as a result of the high amount of anti-American sentiment present among Urban’s employees.

      The former employee stated that an Israeli employee of Urban had even once remarked, “Give us twenty years and we’ll take over your media and destroy your country” (page 37 of the FBI report).

      AIPAC is the media gatekeeper today. Y'all reach in your wallets today and donate!

    7. A key aspect of that report, compiled by journalist Carl Cameron, also states that federal investigators widely suspected that Israeli intelligence had prior knowledge of the September 11 attacks. In the report, Cameron stated:

      The Israelis may have gathered intelligence about the attacks in advance and not shared it. A highly placed investigator said there are ‘tie-ins’ but when asked for details he flatly refused to describe them saying: ‘Evidence linking these Israelis to 9-11 is classified. I cannot tell you about the evidence that has been gathered. It is classified information.’”

      One exchange between Cameron and host Brit Hume included in the report is particularly telling:

      HUME: “Carl, what about this question of advanced knowledge of what was going to happen on 9/11? How clear are investigators that some Israeli agents may have known something?”

      CAMERON: “Well it’s very explosive information obviously and there is a great deal of evidence that they say they have collected. None of it necessarily conclusive. It’s more when they put it all together a big question they say is, ‘How could they have not known?’ — almost a direct quote, Brit.”

      However, it is essential to note that Israeli intelligence did attempt to warn the U.S. government at least twice beginning in August 2001 as did the intelligence agencies of many other countries, including France, the UK, Egypt, Russia and Jordan. Yet, no people connected to any other intelligence agency other than Israel were caught celebrating the attacks as they took place in the area nor were accused by mainstream media of operating a large spy ring within the U.S. at the time. One theory to explain this discrepancy is that the Mossad elements of which the “Dancing Israelis” and other alleged Israeli spies could have been part of a specific section of Israeli intelligence that were acting independently as a rogue agency. Such a possibility is not unusual given that divisions of or groups within the CIA have been known to “go rogue” on several occasions.

      9/11 as a big — and acknowledged — Israeli win
      If the “Dancing Israelis”, and more broadly the Mossad and the Israeli government, had foreknowledge of September 11, why would they remain silent and not attempt to warn the American government or public of the coming attacks? In the case of the “Dancing Israelis,” why would Israelis celebrate such an attack?

      One of the detained “Dancing Israelis,” Omer Marmari, told police the following about why he viewed the September 11 attacks in a positive light:

      Israel now has hope that the world will now understand us. Americans are na├»ve and America is easy to get inside. There are not a lot of checks in America. And now America will be tougher about who gets into their country.”

      While Marmari’s statement may suggest one reason some of the “Dancing Israelis” were so “visibly happy” in their photographs, there are also other statements made by top Israeli politicians that suggest why the Israeli government and its intelligence agency declined to act on apparent foreknowledge of the attack.

    8. The only Israelis dancing with joy about 9/11 were Muslim Arab residents/citizens of Israel.
      Mr. Marmari's statement is what one says when you've been telling everyone on the block that those neighbors are planning to rob them all blind and blow up their houses, and then those neighbors go ahead and rob and kill someone, and you say, "I'm sorry that happened, but maybe now the rest of you will believe me and take precautions against them." Not, "Yay, I'm so happy they blew up your buildings."

    So are almost all SCOTUS opinions. That's what 5-4 means! Acting like courts are above politics is a sign of a naive dreamer pining for the 1950's.

  8. To a certain extent you are correct. But lets delve into this a little deeper. First you need to read their rulings. In almost every case brought before the USSC, (not all as I have to give you some credit with respect to the ACA amongst a few others rulings) the conservative side of SCOTUS followed constitutional law. Whereas the left side of the court almost always changed the definition of our constitution to promote their belief system. Let us not forget the RBG promotes on college campuses, the notion of a European style of law and court system thereby destroying that which can only be described as greatest document yet defined by man to protect the individual and personal rights. The leftist courts and judges continue to erode those rights everyday.

  9. Couldn't agree more with this. It's' insane some libtard hack judge can overrule the operation of the elected federal government.

      Not"all" of the states. Much of California and nearly all Oregon are sane. Illinois outside of Chiraq is pretty good. Same for Western Minnesota. Band up LA San Francisco, Detroit, Baltimore, New York city and a few others and let them leave with a share of the debt equal to their population.

  11. It appears the Supremes are getting more effecient at cleaning their judiciary house by overruling these activist judges. I wish the rest of government, DOJ, CIA, FBI, SSI would be as efficient at rectifying the acts of their activist agents.

  12. We have a Constitutional Republic with three branches of co-equal government. The Executive, the Legislative, and the Supremes. Everything else is subservient to those three. Only congress can remove a President from office. Lower courts have no jurisdiction over Presidential decisions. Only Congress and the Supremes can over rule him. Trump made a mistake allowing lower courts to enjoin him but he was fighting off a coup attempt. Now Barr is speaking out about this issue and hopefully more cases will go to the Supremes. If someone brings suit against Trump's actions, they should be the ones responsible for taking it to the Supremes and Trump's actions should take precedence until the Supremes or Congress says otherwise. As in the travel ban, the Supremes ruled against the original one and then Trump changed it and it passed muster. That's how it's suppose to work. Congress can pass legislation to overturn a President's actions but he has the right to veto. If the Senate overrides his veto, then he has to go for plan B. Almost everything Trump has tried to implement to put America first is being opposed by the disloyal opposition, including many GOPe. Trump is a genius in getting things done in spite of the Delays, Obstruction, and Sabotage of his America first agenda.
