Thumbs up Sessions Fights Back Against Activist Judges

It's about time that Sessions did something, and this is a good start. No judge who violates the Constitution should remain on the bench, and their activist, unconstitutional rulings should be immediately null and void.

Quote:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions promises to end the “judicial activism” thwarting the administration. The Department of Justice vows to fight back hard, stripping out of control Obama-era federal judges of the power to legislate from the bench through nationwide injunctions.

Sessions announced a harsher tone for litigation policy at a speech in Missouri on Thursday where he spelled out a new set of guidelines for United States attorneys.

He’s all set to stomp out the power a single judge now holds, where one receptive federal district can totally stonewall President Donald Trump’s policies all across the entire country. Many of the 25 national injunctions issued since President Trump took office were totally intended to tie the hands of the administration.

For instance, when Hawaii’s federal Judge Derrick Watson blocked the administrative order banning travel from high risk-predominantly Muslim countries, Sessions came unglued.

“I am really amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue and order that stops the president of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and constitutional power.”

When President Trump tried to cancel Barack Obama’s Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals program, he got the same treatment. “This trend must stop.” Attorney General Sessions declared. “We have a government to run. The Constitution does not grant to a single district judge the power to veto executive branch actions.”

The attorneys fighting for team Trump came into court totally unarmed but Sessions just changed that.

Whenever a Department of Justice attorney is presented with a case that challenges “a federal government program, regulation, order, or law,” he wants them to apply “consistent positions.”

They are to aggressively argue that “overbroad injunctive relief” is not constitutional and there are limits on what judges are allowed to do. They’re “acting outside the bounds of their authority.”

The Attorney General outlined six very specific points to be used in court from now on.

First and foremost, Department lawyers need to remind the judges that blanket injunctions “exceed the constitutional limitations on judicial power.” The constitution does not permit them to bind anyone into a ruling who isn’t directly involved in the case in front of them.

The second point Sessions raises is that what the courts have been doing is a fairly recent invention and on very shaky ground to start with, calling it “inconsistent with centuries of judicial practice.”

“For most of our history, courts understood judicial power as fundamentally the power to render judgments in individual cases and concluding that nationwide injunctions are legally and historically dubious.” There were only 22 issued in the first 200 years of our country but recently, “courts issued 22 in just over one year.”

This was the one that other judges should be embarrassed about...

After over a DOZEN times saying that it would be unConstitutional to create an executive order for this, Obama went and did it anyway..

..and THEN, when Trump tries to rescind this unconstitutional executive order, this turd-judge says THAT would be unConstitutional...

Finally Sessions shows a little spine. Unfortunately the same judges issuing nationwide injunctions without authority will dismiss any argument that restricts their power. It's going to be necessary to dissolve Federal courts when judges overstep their authority. President Jefferson did this when he determined the appointments of his predecessor were too partisan.

An injunction against banning immigrants by their religion is about as constitutional as it gets. Sessions is out of line here. Trump is not a king. His actions can be weighed by the courts.

You are either incredibly dense, or intentionally dishonest. The injunction did not mention religion; it only named countries that were identified by the Obama admin as being either complicit with terrorism or having an unstable government incapable of adequately screening it's residents to travel to the US.

Once again, you spout nonsense with no basis in truth. Your hyper partisan stance is noted.
