While Obama was in office, he plotted for ways he could make his influence felt for years to come.
His surest way of doing so was to stack America’s courts with liberal judges. They will continue to execute his will even after his removal from office.
He has already conspired with certain judges whom he appointed to ensure that Trump’s measures won’t succeed.
Last month Obama held a meeting with his Harvard pal Judge Derrick Kahala Watson in Hawaii. Watson proceeded to block Trump’s travel ban.
Another court that is trying to stymie President Trump’s every move is the 9th Circuit. When Trump was asked if he had considered breaking up the court, he did not mince words.
From The Daily Wire:
“Absolutely, I have. There are many people that want to break up the 9th Circuit. It’s outrageous. Everybody immediately runs to the 9th Circuit. And we have a big country. We have lots of other locations.
“But they immediately run to the 9th Circuit. Because they know that’s like, semi-automatic. You see judge shopping, or what’s gone on with these people, they immediately run to the 9th Circuit. It’s got close to an 80 percent reversal period, and what’s going on in the 9th Circuit is a shame.”
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Orrick temporarily blocked Trump’s order to the Justice Department in January to put immigration-related conditions on grants for “sanctuary cities” that may not be directly related to law enforcement.
In February, a 9th Circuit panel ruled that Trump’s immigration executive order was likely unconstitutional. That prompted Trump to substitute another order, which was challenged; but the panel decision remained on the books as binding law within the 9th Circuit.
It’s unsurprising that the judicial branch is giving Trump so much difficulty. The 9th Circuit court has the highest percentage of sitting judges appointed by Democratic presidents.
Judge Orrick is notably biased, having been a former DNC bundler who raised $200,000 for Obama.
These judges lost their impartiality long ago. Justice is trampled on when the 9th Circuit functions as nothing more than a rubber stamp for leftist activism. The 9th Circuit care nothing about constitutional law—they are focused solely on executing their liberal agenda.
Trump is right to try to stop this, because there is nothing to be gained by trying to bargain.
The 9th Circuit is a mockery to democracy everywhere. They are practically legislating at this point, and they are nearly untouchable.
One way to remedy this miscarriage of justice would be for Congress to impeach these overtly left-wing judges. Laws will be enforced again once they are ejected.
