Neil Gorsuch Issues Savage Rebuke to
Activist Judges and Nationwide Injunctions

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 1/28/2020 4:24:51 AM

On Monday, the Supreme Court allowed the Trump administration's public charge rule to go into effect, striking down a nationwide injunction from a New York judge. The rule allows the government to deny green cards to immigrants who receive public assistance and are therefore considered a "public charge." In addition to the 5-4 decision allowing the rule to go into effect, Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch issued a concurring opinion rebuking activist judges and their rush to apply "nationwide injunctions" against Trump administration policies. "Today the Court (rightly) grants a stay, allowing the government to pursue (for now) its policy everywhere save Illinois.

And while Roberts sided with the majority on this case, why hasn't he as Chief Justice dealt with the elephant in the room already?

I have come to believe that the lower federal courts' jurisdiction should be restricted to the physical limits of each court's territorial jurisdiction (e.g. courts in one judicial district can only enjoin activity within that jurisdiction). Many federal trial judges are barely able to keep up with that.

One of Trump’s greatest achievements is the success he’s had in appointing judges! We must have 4 more years of it. Judge Thomas has weighed in on this issue as well. One has to believe with conservative and constitutional judges, we can turn from liberal insanity to fairness, order, and the rule of law.

The Democrats impeached President Trump for “abuse of power.” Alan Dershowitz argued that this is too vague a charge to constitute a “hight crime and misdemeanor” and should be dismissed by the Senate. I wonder if instead the Senate should NOT dismiss the charge but instead acquit the President thereby establishing a precedent that it is a valid charge. Then after the election with a Republican House majority we could see many of the rogue judges in the Senate dock. Just a thought.

Good first step....but he hasn't really DONE anything about the problem except talk. Judges who do this should be sanctioned or impeached. SC should set up a process whereby EVERY nation wide injunction gets an immediate review that denies nationwide application unless extenuating circumstances exist and forces them into the typical appeals process w/o nation wide application. THAT would fix the problem.

WOW! Thank You Justice Gorsuch and Thank You President Trump. I have been wondering WHEN the gauntlet would be thrown down and Justice Gorsuch just slammed it across the lower courts faces. Yes, these are just words. So is all law. However, when the SCOTUS justices say they don't like something, it is a clear message that, the next time they see it, it is going to be tossed out with little consideration. They can even intervene and cancel such overly broad injunctions. The procedure is for the lower courts to decide for their area of authority and then the parties can choose to carry it on to the SCOTUS for higher and broader impact. Leftist judges, in desperation, are pushing those boundaries and Gorsuch just pushed back, with a bulldozer.

House Democrats impeached President Trump for putting his own political fortunes ahead of the national interest in dealing with Ukraine. But it’s Joe Biden who should be on the hot seat for that. Trump is criticized for a July 25 phone call, when he asked the president of Ukraine for help investigating what Biden did as vice president to get a prosecutor there fired. At the time, Biden’s son Hunter was on the payroll of a corrupt Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, which was targeted by authorities. Democrats claim it was wrong to ask for the investigation; Trump’s defense lawyers say there was every reason

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Former Vice President Joe Biden never measures up to that standard. In 2014, Bob Gates, who served as President Obama’s first secretary of defense, said that Biden had been wrong on almost every foreign policy and national security issue for 40 years. Biden’s record hasn’t improved since then. Biden brags that Obama chose him for vice president because Obama didn’t have the foreign policy expertise that Biden had. The expertise Biden brags about includes voting against the 1991 Gulf War when we threw Saddam Hussein’s forces out of Kuwait and voting in favor of the 2003 Iraq invasion.

The Democrats are clearly frustrated by their failure to convince congressional Republicans that President Trump has committed any act approaching an impeachable offense. This was made plain when House managers Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) resorted to the bizarre and self-defeating tactic of insulting the integrity of the very Senators who will ultimately decide the President’s fate. The Democrats obviously believed their relentless attacks on all things Trump, combined with impeachment, would eventually cause Republicans to abandon him just as they did President Nixon in 1974. Instead, their three-year smear campaign has only strengthened the President’s support among Republicans in both houses of Congress. Why?

Joe Biden doesn’t sound very moderate when he says there is “no room for compromise” on “transgender equality.” It is the “civil rights issue of our time,” he tweeted last week, elevating it above women’s equality, racial equality, and even climate “justice,” an issue he once told us was an “existential threat.” The tweet was rather baffling, other than as an exercise in identity pandering. Maybe Biden thought he could win over a segment of the 0.3 percent transgender voters who are irate that Bernie Sanders accepted an endorsement from libertarian podcaster and pronoun purist Joe Rogan.

What looked like a speedy scrapping of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, premised on Democrats beclowning themselves, is now on hold. Romney says that John Bolton's "bombshell" about a supposed Ukrainian aid-for-investigation quid pro quo is so significant it merits calling Bolton as a witness in the Senate impeachment trial, just as Democrats have been calling for, though not enough to call him in at the House.

You’ve got to hand it to the Democrats -- they can hold their caucus together for the flimsiest of causes. The GOP, though, has all these RINOs who have to establish their independence; they’re willing to break party unity when it serves their own ambitions. Three senators – Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Mitt Romney of Utah – are rumored to be willing for witnesses to be called in the impeachment trial now underway in the Senate. Obviously, such a slowdown benefits the Democrats, who want the impeachment to headline news reports as long as possible.
