This stranglehold that left-wing judges have on our constitutional republic must be broken. This ban is too small, but the blowback illustrates the over-reaching power the left/Islamic machine has seized in the post-Reagan era. Media, academia, culture — all weapons the leftwing/jihad axis employs to seize our freedoms and impose their autocratic rule under the guise of social justice and religious freedom. It’s a laughable ruse. Under their rule, there is neither.
A democracy is a government of the people (the demos in Greek), or their freely-elected representatives, a government of elected legislatures and laws passed by them. This has been superseded, replaced, by a krytocracy – a government of judges. Unelected judges.
“America’s Constitution and the laws passed by Congress under its authority no longer have any meaning. The Constitution’s only – only – meaning is what judges say it has. We live in an era of krytocratic tyranny: rule by the arbitrary feelings and whims of judges,” Dr. Jack Wheeler.
I applaud Trump’s fortitude. Do not back down. And readers should be backing the President. Any Republican who works against Trump and works with our enemies must be defeated in the next election.
EXCERPT: WASHINGTON—The Justice Department moved quickly on Friday to appeal a federal judge’s latest ruling trimming President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban, while the administration is separately laying the groundwork for new and broader restrictions.
The latest chapter in the fast-moving saga began Thursday evening in Honolulu, where U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson ruled that the Trump administration’s recent implementation of its ban contradicted the interim rules put in place by the Supreme Court on June 26.
Mr. Trump’s restrictions, which cited terrorism concerns, imposed a 90-day ban on travelers from six Muslim-majority countries, while also suspending the admission of refugees temporarily. Last month’s Supreme Court’s decision allowed the GOP president to enforce the ban against people with no ties to the U.S., but not against people who have close connections to family or institutions in the U.S.
Mr. Trump’s administration took a narrow reading of who qualified for the Supreme Court’s exemption to the ban. But Judge Watson, an appointee of Mr. Trump’s Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, ruled Thursday that the government must admit a broader class of people than it wanted. That includes extended family members like grandparents, aunts and uncles, as well as a wider class of refugees.
