Supreme Court Signaling
The Supreme Court's reinstatement of the Trump Administration travel ban was high win for Americans yesterday as it could mark the beginning of the end of this massive judicial overreach we've seen since Thurgood Marshall's days on the bench.
With the 9th and 4th Circuit, the insane liberal bent on bringing in people who wish to terrorize and move us towards other governing principles like Sharia Law, only proves the lower courts contain people who do not take their positions on the bench (or oath) seriously. They see it as more of a political position rather than a judicial one. This is very dangerous for our society as we've seen for decades; however, as of late, it's far more damaging.
Yesterday's Supreme Court decision should be rattling many judicial activists' cages because it can be seen as a signal the high court will no longer sit idly by while they play politics with our jurisprudence. In his well-penned opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas made a strong statement about the separation of powers and the need honor it regardless of personal politics. Furthermore, the 9-0 concurrence demonstrated the Court's dedication to the US Constitution for which this separation is clearly defined.
Should President Trump revisit Thomas Jefferson's truculent actions in 1803 by abolishing some of these lower courts in order to preserve our governance principles? While it would create much scuttlebutt from the Left, our country is far too valuable to just let unelected ideologues go unmolested.
Maybe the time has come for us to re-commit in total to our Constitution and stop tromping on majority's rights and freedoms to placate the minority. Perceived freedom for the few shouldn't be at the expense of freedom for the many.
