    President Trump took time off from his long holiday weekend on Wednesday to slam Chief Justice John Roberts, who earlier in the day had rebuked the president for his attacks on the federal judiciary. “Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have ‘Obama judges,’ and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country. It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an ‘independent judiciary,” the commander-in-chief tweeted from Mar-a-Lago after a round of golf with the legendary Jack Nicklaus. “[B]ut if it is why...

    <p>A federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration from denying asylum to migrants who illegally cross into the United States, saying the policy likely violated federal law on asylum eligibility.</p> <p>The judge pointedly denied the claim that the president, by fiat, could give the manner of entry added legal weight as a determinant of asylum. He reasoned that the “interpretive guide” of United Nations compacts on asylum lent extra force to congressional requirements. The intent of Congress, Tigar wrote, was “unambiguous.”</p>

  • Sessions rips federal judge for 'improperly' reinstating DACA, 'eviscerating' executive power

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday unloaded on a federal judge who ordered the administration to reinstate the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy last week, saying the ruling was "improper" and vowing to keep up enforcement efforts against illegal immigration "aggressively." Sessions added that the judge had effectively "eviscerated" the legal authority of the executive branch and Congress, and strongly suggested the administration would appeal the ruling. The Trump administration announced last year it would end DACA, which was implemented by the Obama administration using executive authority and protects illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children...
  • Judicial Tyranny: Crazy Liberal Judge Sets Drug Dealer Free

    If you were wondering why we can’t have nice things in America, well, that’s because left wing (aka “liberal”) activist judges are completely out of control, and they represent a mortal danger both to our Republic (remember how many times Trump’s executive orders were overturned by the 9th circus et al) and to public safety. However, today’s news is so shocking even for somebody living in “Progressive Utopia”, that it will make your skin crawl. The story goes something like this: Salem Superior Court Judge Timothy Feeley ruled on Tuesday (two days ago basically) that Manuel Soto-Vittini, a famous drug...

    Judge Timothy Feeley must go Massachusetts judge is a menace to society By Jeffrey T. Kuhner Liberal judges in Massachusetts are out of control. They pose a mortal danger to public safety, and need to be reined in. Exhibit A is Salem Superior Court Judge Timothy Feeley. He has blood on his hands. Feeley ruled Tuesday that a notorious local drug dealer, Manuel Soto-Vittini, will not serve any time in prison despite pleading guilty to charges of drug possession with intent to distribute. In particular, Salem police officers arrested Soto-Vittini in June 2015. They found over 40 small bags of...

    Thomas Jefferson warned if allowed, the courts court could be the undoing of the Republic! With the mounting examples of judicial tyranny (much so far against President Trump)... is it time to “just say no” and demand that “case law” be abolished until voted on by Congress and signed by the president? This is not new… in Marbury v. Madison (1803), Chief Justice John Marshall and the court gave themselves the authority of “Judicial Review”... a de-facto VETO (used many times) of the will of the people. They “found” this authority under Article III of the Constitution, similar to how...

    A Manhattan judge ruled Wednesday that there’s nothing “outrageous” about throwing the president’s supporters out of bars — because the law doesn’t protect against political discrimination. Philadelphia accountant Greg Piatek, 31, was bounced from a West Village watering hole in January 2017, just after Trump took the oath of office, for wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap, according to his lawsuit over the incident. “Anyone who supports Trump — or believes in what you believe — is not welcome here! And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you!” Piatek claims the staff of The Happiest Hour on W....

    In a memo to fellow House members, state Rep. Cris Dush (R) said the ruling overriding Pennsylvania’s U.S. House district lines amounted to an overstep of judicial authority under the state Constitution, which lays out the path by which a bill becomes a law — in this case, a bill to delineate the district lines after the decennial Census and reapportionment process. “The five Justices who signed this order that blatantly and clearly contradicts the plain language of the Pennsylvania Constitution engaged in misbehavior in office,” Dush wrote to fellow members...

    The new congressional map imposed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will be used in the 2018 elections, after courts rejected two challenges Monday. First, a panel of federal judges Monday dismissed a lawsuit challenging the new map imposed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, saying the Republican lawmakers who brought the challenge did not have standing — “We hold that the federal Elections Clause violations that the Plaintiffs allege are not the Plaintiffs’ to assert” — and that the case is not appropriate for the court to take up at this time. “In short, the Plaintiffs invite us to opine on...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. – Pennsylvania's high court issued a new congressional district map for the state's 2018 elections on its self-imposed deadline Monday, all but ensuring that Democratic prospects will improve in several seats and that Republican lawmakers challenge it in federal court. The map of Pennsylvania's 18 congressional districts is to be in effect for the May 15 primary and substantially overhauls a congressional map widely viewed as among the nation's most gerrymandered. The map was approved in a 4-3 decision. Most significantly, the new map likely gives Democrats a better shot at winning seats in Philadelphia's heavily populated and...

    A man denied a concealed carry permit and a Second Amendment group he is a member of filed a federal lawsuit last week arguing New York’s licensing scheme is unconstitutional. Refused a permit was Robert Nash, who joined with the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association — the NRA’s state affiliate — in filing a legal challenge against the state’s pistol permit laws and practice. Named as defendants in the suit are State Police Superintendent George Beech and state Supreme Court Justice Richard McNally, the latter of which refused to issue Nash a permit because, while the man passed...

    Yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security announced that it would resume the application renewal process for illegal aliens seeking protection from deportation after being brought into the United States as children. These “Dreamers”, as they are known in some circles, had previously been shielded from deportation under President Barack Obama’s executive order known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).On Tuesday January 9th, U.S. District Judge William Allsup ruled that President Donald J. Trump did not have the legal authority to rescind some parts of the program. In September 2017, Trump pledged to end DACA altogether unless Democrats...

    “The same courts that have unilaterally granted foreign nationals a religious liberty right to immigrate are now preventing American Christians from praying.” “Ten Commandments” Judge Roy Moore, who is running against RINO Mitch McConnell stooge Luther Strange to fill the vacant Alabama Senate seat created when Jeff Sessions became attorney general, blasted the “do-nothing Congress” this week following the horrific 9th Circuit (Circus) ruling that made public prayer on a football field illegal, a clear violation of religious liberty and the First Amendment. Several years ago, now fired former Bremerton High School (in Washington state) football coach Joe Kennedy would...

    A federal judge in Honolulu has expanded the Trump administration’s list of family relationships needed by people seeking new visas from six mostly Muslim countries to avoid a travel ban. U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson ruled today that the travel ban exemptions should include grandparents, grandchildren, uncles, aunts and other relatives. President Donald Trump’s travel ban, which was partially allowed by the U.S. Supreme Court, did not include grandparents, grandchildren and other relations considered “bona-fide” family relationships to be granted an exemption to the ban. The administration said a bona fide relationship would be a parent, spouse, fiance, son,...

    A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that a transgender Wisconsin high school senior who identifies as male can use the boys' bathroom. The ruling, a victory for Ashton Whitaker, 17, of George Nelson Tremper High School in Kenosha, came the same week that he graduates. Nonetheless, he said he was thrilled with the decision. "I hope my case will help other transgender students in Kenosha and elsewhere to just be treated the same as everyone else without facing discrimination and harassment from school administrators," he said. A three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously that...

    In a shocker that really should shock no one, this leftist judge reportedly raised over $200,000 and personally gave $30,000 of his own money to support former President Obama, and also gave money to support John Kerry in 2004. . . . The 63-year-old Orrick also issued a restraining order in 2015 against The Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group headed by David Daleiden that secretly recorded meetings of an international group of abortion providers called the National Abortion Federation, to which several Planned Parenthood locations are affiliated with.
