Breaking: 9th Circuit Leftist’s Rule Against National Sovereignty
Nick Yanakas, Senior Social Policy Editor
Well, if you didn’t believe we needed a wholesale overhaul of the judiciary before, this should do it. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, perhaps the most radical and lawless of all the appellate level courts, has just upheld the asinine ruling of a district judge in Seattle, blocking enforcement of President Trump’s Executive Order on immigration; a completely reasonable and sane policy that placed a temporary, 4 month halt on immigration from Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Libya, Sudan, and Yemen, in addition to placing an indefinite suspension on immigration from Syria.
Let us be very clear here: CONGRESS HAS PLENARY POWER OVER THE ISSUE OF IMMIGRATION! President Trump acted completely within his statutory authority when he issued his executive order. With this opinion issued by the 9th Circuit, they have overruled Congress, over 200 years of settled law, and opened up our nation to the entire world’s population. If a left-wing judge in Seattle and 3 judge panel in the 9th circuit has the power to control our immigration policy then we cease to be a sovereign nation. The Daily Wire Editor in-Chief Ben Shapiro has a good breakdown of five ways this ruling is completely nuts and unmoored from the constitution.
The question now is where do we go from here? The President responded on Twitter saying:
“SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”
That is exactly the wrong response from the President. The courts are out of control and will only continue to act beyond their authority unless someone stops them. Issuing all caps tweets will not dissuade the left-wing judges from issuing left-wing opinions. What he should've done is issued a statement that reads along the lines of this:
It is time for conservatives to stop playing by the left’s rules of “appointing better judges,” the judiciary is a swamp that needs to be drained. We are barely three weeks into the Trump administration and they are already wreaking havoc. It will only get worse from here, every single agenda item conservatives support will eventually get struck down or watered down in the courts.
The time is now for Congress and the President to reassert its authority over the court system.
