Asking the right questions doesn’t mean that Justice Gorsuch will reach the right decisions in these or any future case before the Court. However, conservatives can take encouragement that Justice Gorsuch is starting from the plain language of the Constitution and the statues Congress has passed, not the whims and fantasies of other judges.
It is clearly impractical to demand that the federal government immediately withdraw from education, health care, and all the other areas in which its current vast presence is, to the minds of many conservatives, clearly unconstitutional. It is too late, as well as politically impossible, to try to lock that barn door. The intruders are already acting like owners. But we can, and must, try to keep the remaining horses under local control.
Our friend Michael Patrick Leahy has shown that there’s more than willful blindness behind the bizarre rulings against President Trump's Executive Orders on travel from terrorism hotspots. There’s a potential conspiracy involving Democrat holdovers at the Department of Homeland Security, Muslim sympathizers in the media and the shadowy “immigrant rights” groups and Democratic state Attorneys General that have brought the lawsuits to overturn the President’s Executive Order.
The notion that an unelected federal judge could order the President and Congress to admit a given number of foreigners and order the States to support with welfare and education benefits however many refugees a private organization chose to send them defies so many constitutional limits that it is hard to even begin to count them.
The Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution’s Due Process Clause to require judges to act impartially and with the appearance of impartiality. The conduct of Judge Chuang raises serious questions about his impartiality. We urge Congress to hold hearings on Judge Chuang's impeachment at its earliest opportunity.
Mark Skoda and the patriots of the America First Federation have it exactly right. We urge the House of Representatives to immediately prepare articles of impeachment against Judges Robart, Watson and Chuang and to hold hearings at the earliest possible hour.
Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinions in Heller and McDonald, many of the most liberal lower federal courts have flaunted Heller and the clear language of the Constitution and have been making up their own anti-constitutional rules restricting the Second Amendment.
As we wrote in The Law That Governs Government, efforts by bureaucrats within the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, and even the Justice Department and national security infrastructure to undermine the Trump administration are signs that the administrative state is openly hostile to the constitutional rule of law.
If Washington had not been president, it is possible a civil war could have occurred several decades earlier. Washington proved that the ability to bring change to this country requires trust. It’s a lesson worth recalling today, as trust in government has steadily eroded over the decades. By 2015, trust in government fell to 19 percent. Neither party today can make any big changes without trust. How can they regain it? For starters, by going back to our first presidency and pondering how George Washington had earned it, what it means to have it, and what it takes to keep it.
“We will urge our Representatives [in the United States House of Representatives] to impeach, and for the Senate to try, convict, and remove [Federal District] Judge James Robart in Washington and [Federal District] Judge Leonie Brinkema in Virginia,” The Spirit of America Rally organizer Mark Skoda told our friends at the TennesseeStar.com.
The need for “extreme vetting” of supposed “refugees” from failed states and terrorist hotspots is demonstrated almost daily in the media, should Judges like Leonie Brinkema and James L. Robart choose to take judicial notice of such news reports. A particularly frightening example was recently revealed during the trial in Sweden of an asylum-seeking war criminal.
If terrorism, as proven in the same court house where Judge Brinkema sits on the bench, isn’t a “rational basis” for President Trump’s Executive Order 13,769 then what, in the Judge’s eyes, would justify pausing immigration from a country known to harbor people hostile to the United States? The answer, of course, is that it is not Judge Brinkema’s role in our federal republic to make such decisions, it is the President’s constitutional prerogative to do so.
We urge CHQ readers to join us in demanding that Representative Robert Goodlatte (VA-6) Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee immediately holding hearings on the impeachment of Judge James L. Robart by signing our Impeach Power Grabbing Judges Petition.
One part of the Constitution — Article IV, Section 4 — lists the few things the government must do, whether it wants to or not. These are the obligations clauses. One of the obligations is that the United States “shall protect” each state “against invasion.” Not “can” protect but “shall.” So if President Trump thinks infiltration by the Islamic State amounts to any kind of invasion, he has to act. That’s never been invoked, but, hey, there’s a first time for everything.
The Left was very strategic in filing the challenge to President Trump’s Executive Order and its strategy is unfolding precisely as planned as Far-Left progressive judges in the Ninth Circuit substitute their liberal policies for the plain language of the Constitution and the laws passed by Congress.
We urge Attorney General Sessions to bench Department of Justice attorneys with August Flentje’s civil servant mentality and replace them with experienced conservative litigators who will fight for President Trump's agenda.
The left glorifies anarchy in the language of the “living constitution” and other noble-sounding rhetoric, but it all amounts to the rejection of the rule of law in favor of the rule of men, who feel free to disobey every decree, save their own. In the subversive tweets and mixed-messages to the rioters, in the cheerleading for defiant judges and bureaucrats, in the award-show antics, even in its childish delight in cheap SNL parodies, the ruling class is rekindling its lawless youth.
The President’s powers as Commander in Chief and his executive power to maintain the country’s sovereignty have been stolen by an unelected judge in the Western District of Washington. Stolen Sovereignty by Daniel Horowitz explains how We the People can recover the sovereignty stolen from us by judges like James L. Robart, and why judges like James L. Robart should be impeached.
Daniel Horowitz writing for Conservative Review and Ken Klukowski writing for Breitbart added new arguments to our case for the impeachment of Federal District Judge James L. Robart for issuing an order ultra vires – acting beyond his jurisdiction.
We urge the House of Representatives to immediately prepare articles of impeachment against Judge Robart and to hold hearings at the earliest possible hour. The public needs to know exactly how his blatant partisanship and anti-constitutional behavior has jeopardized our national security and intruded upon the clear constitutional prerogatives of the Congress and the President.
