Run Away, Runaway Judges: This Will Not Stand

"We've had too many examples in recent years of courts and judges legislating. They're not interpreting what the law says and whether someone has violated it or not. In too many instances, they have been actually legislating by legal decree what they think the law should be, and that I don't go for."--President Ronald Reagan

Patterico explains who this so-called "judge" is. In a case about a police union contract,

"Robart ended the hearing with deeply personal remarks, in which he noted a statistic that showed, nationally, 41 percent of the shootings by police were of blacks, when they represented 20 percent of the population.

“Black lives matter,” he said, drawing a startled, audible reaction in a courtroom listening to the words coming from a federal judge sitting on the bench."

Maybe Your Impotence should order criminals to commit crimes in the exact proportion to their race if you don't like the stats. He choked up as he intoned 'Black Lives Matter', the byword of those who support cop killers.

In another case, he took on an innocent young man railroaded by the Title 9 Campus Kangaroo Courts. The man thought he would finally get due process in a Federal court. Instead, the judge continued the railroading.

The guy is a hack.

But this is really about process, not personality. Whether anybody thinks it's good or bad policy, the Constitution clearly gives this authority to the president.

The Constitution invests the Executive with national security and entry responsibilities, not a judicial buttinski, grandstanding for his politics. Judge Junior has no responsibility or authority here. He should have run for office if he wanted that. The Ninth Circus is even worse, although Judge Napolitano thinks the Ninth will actually do its job for a change. We'll see.

These so-called "judges", like the Constitutional contagion they are, will soon be swatted down like horseflies on Hamilton.

Horsefly-UPDATE: Byron York:

"In an exchange with Justice Department lawyer Michelle Bennett, Robart asked, "How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11?"
Your Honor, I don't have that information," said Bennett
"Let me tell you," said Robart. "The answer to that is none, as best I can tell. So, I mean, you're here arguing on behalf  of someone [President Trump] that says: We have to protect the United States from these individuals coming from these countries, and there's no support for that."
Judge Robart had things wrong. There have been at least 60 people from the seven countries convicted not arrested, but convicted — of terror-related offenses since 9/11.".......

She didn't have that information because it's irrelevant. It's not a question of whether the policy is right or wrong, but who decides policy--the president or a so-called "judge" from Western Washington State who thinks he's president.

He's even testifying in his own court. And perjured himself doing so. A true arrogant hack.

"I have decided that the US military shall henceforth take its orders from the UN--Oh, 'tis jolly good fun
to be president without having to run for office in some pesky election!"
