On Friday, U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam, Jr, an activist bench warmer, blocked President Trump’s National Emergency order of building sections of the border wall. Gilliam’s decision temporarily stopped the Trump administration’s ability to receive military-designated funds for wall construction.
“To consider judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.” Thomas Jefferson.
Do we not have several activist judges on the supreme court? The bias is evident. Thanks for your Thomas Jefferson quote. He was a visionary. The fact that President Trump declared a national emergency gives him the power to appropriate funds to alleviate that emergency. These activist “Judges” needed to be ignored.
It seems as if Democrats and these Obama activist judges wrap themselves in the Constitution when they deem it necessary. However, the President is lawfully right here. The law allows him to do with this money as he pleases. Sorry for the leftists. They created the law to piss taxpayer dollars down the toilet now that it’s come back to bite them they want to repeal that law through judicial fiat.
Gilliam, an appointee of President Barack Obama, said the plaintiffs were likely to succeed on arguments that the president was wrongly ignoring Congress’ wishes.
“Congress’s ‘absolute’ control over federal expenditures_even when that control may frustrate the desires of the Executive Branch regarding initiatives it views as important_is not a bug in our constitutional system. It is a feature of that system, and an essential one,” he wrote in his 56-page opinion. [Associated Press]
This is a disgrace; you can have 20,000 federal judges, 19,999 conservative and the lone wacko leftist has the power to bring everything to a halt. Our constitution is in shambles.
Democrats may have won a small victory here–but the precedent will come back to haunt them. They LOVE spending money–and if Congress’ intention is strictly enforced, I suspect they will come to rue the day they fought so hard for this precedent.
Every time there is a murder committed against a citizen of this country by an illegal alien who Trump has been trying to stop from entering this country by a judge like this stops him. The friends and family members who attend these funerals sent mass cards to this judge as a reminder that political politics was more important to the Democrat judge to stop Trump than your friend and family member.
According to this judge, emergency powers are reserved for unforeseen catastrophes. Not only is the wall expenditure foreseeable, but it was also explicitly requested and denied explicitly by Congress who controls the purse strings. This will be an interesting case for the Supreme Court.
There are reasons people don’t want to stop crowds of illegals from walking into America–and none of them right. Intermingled with them are murderers, child abusers, drug dealers, and the diseased, and they are victimizing my countrymen and me. Is this judge trying to assure his slate of criminal cases is filled?
Remember this when you see trolls crying that the wall’s not being built or illegals are flooding the border. Liberals do nothing but file lawsuits for everything that Trump tries to do for this country. The Democrats have done nothing for the American people but resist and cry. Resist and cry. Rinse, repeat.
