Jeff Sessions Rips Into Anti-Trump Judges Polluting the Court System

While President Donald Trump and the Republican Senate has done an excellent job turning the Supreme Court to the right, there remains a grave problem polluting the lower federal courts of the United States. Whether it’s the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the Pacific Northwest, the district courts of California, or rogue federal judges in Hawaii, the country is still largely under the rule of a bunch of liberals who think it’s their job to make law from the bench. And these constitutional interpreters have been on their worst behavior for the last two years, handing down decision after ludicrous decision, all in an effort to lend the #Resistance some judicial weight.

Many of the worst of these decisions have since been struck down by the Supreme Court, but it cannot be ignored that thousands and thousands of cases are finished long before they ever get before the nation’s high court. It is therefore essential that President Trump and the Republicans step it up, fill those vacancies that are still out there, and remake the federal judiciary as much as possible.

In the meantime, we have Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who said Monday that some of the current crop of “political actors” on the federal bench could be facing “calls for their replacement” before long.

“Once we go down this road in American government, there is no turning back,” Sessions said in a speech at the Heritage Foundation. “We are seeing it in case after case. When a hot-button policy issue ends up in litigation, judges are starting to believe their role is to examine the entire process that led to the policy decision — to redo the entire political debate in their courtrooms.”

Sessions specifically criticized the route that many judges have taken in the Trump era, which has been to subject the administration to discovery processes that aim to uncover the president’s “motivation” behind a particular move. He cited the case over a Census question that will ask about citizenship to make his point.

“The Census question — which has appeared in one form or another on the Census for over a hundred years — is either legal or illegal,” Sessions said. “The words on the page don’t have a motive; they are either permitted or they are not. But the judge has decided to hold a trial over the inner workings of a Cabinet secretary’s mind.”

We saw federal courts take much the same approach to President Trump’s travel ban, using his words on the campaign trail to determine whether or not there was anti-religious animus embedded in the executive order. But again, like Sessions said, an order or a law is either legal or it isn’t. It’s either permitted by the Constitution or it isn’t. It’s not up to a judge to go and find “motive” like these are criminal proceedings. You only do that when you have a conclusion you want to reach…but cannot do so within the confines of the law.

Sessions calling out these judges won’t necessarily change anything, but these are conversations we definitely need to be having in the Age of Trump, where the judiciary is completely out of control.

  1. President Trump bashing,It is something a silly adolescent male-female does when feebly striking back at someone superior to him,LIBERALISM Is It Mental Illness or Demonic Oppression?

  2. We the people need to exterminate 90% of Capital Hill’s Representatives!
    Prepare for the violent bloody civil war that is brewing.
    Democrats blatantly lie to the American people. They vote for and implement scandal and corruption
    and they are “DOMESTIC ENEMIES OF THE USA”!
    It’s time to end their existence. “CIVIL WAR”!

    • Hey, you must be from California: “Democrats blatantly lie to the American people. They vote for and implement scandal and corruption
      and they are “DOMESTIC ENEMIES OF THE USA”!” I am amazed and disgusted at the utter gall this state’s politicians have in voting in ludicrous legislation. It appears to me they sit around and try one-upmanship ideas to lay on their constituents. The sillier, the better. The funnier to them, the better. Like dual sex toilets …. Like other LGBT desires to recruit to their appalling lifestyles.
      And when one of the elected proposes a piece of conservative legislation, he /she is BASHED They prefer people like Atty General Becerra who shoots out ridiculous edicts that state workers will be punished if they work with federal immigration officials or, former state atty general Kamela Harris who prosecuted the man who uncovered the very GROTESQUE AND ILLEGAL Planned Parenthood’s marketing of baby parts. He is still fighting off her assault on him. And still , voters , swayed by Planned Parenthood’s usual money into her campaign, sent her to do her harm in the U.S. Senate. Yep, lots of California politicians do the bidding of these dealers in babies body parts. Planned Parenthood continues to buy politicians… who buy votes to assure their backsides stay in office. And when it isn’t PP money it is Soros who always has demonic purposes to fund. Can any of these even DEFINE INTEGRITY?

      • Time to end Planned Parenthood. Don’t care about the women all they care about is making money off the babies it’s totally disgusting they should all be prosecuted for what they doing

  3. We have way too many foreigners – non US citizens – in our government. Some of the US haters may have citizenship papers, handed out like candy during the Obama administration – but are they legal? Muslims are a place to start. As a muslim, they only owe allegience to their fake god and are banned of taking any other oath. Unless it comes under their “lie to the infidals” part of their beliefs.

    • There are voted in politicians in Minnesota and Michigan that refused to swear the oath on a bible, they swore in on a Koran. There is something anti-American about that because they cannot be held accountable to us as Americans then.

  4. As much as I dislike Jeff Sessions… I completely agree with his analogy of we have to remove legislators from the bench asap!

  5. Really, Mr. Sessions? Did you just wake up from a long nap and realize what is happening with this anti-Trump behavior of the judicial branch who is heavy on Democrats and tries to undermine the President? Things will have to change and if you don’t step up fast you will have to be gone.

  6. so why isn’t he having them arrested , and hold them accountable for their stupid rulings , just like he refuses to go after oboma and hillary or any democrat

  7. Well, I do recall that as far back as the 1950’s, there was either a man or a woman that would come to the front door and take the Census. And every year my mom gave the same answer. She stopped having babies after me. So, it was all just a part of a once a year check…which they said was to have the correct count for each family member, how many males, and how many females; and for the Federal Government to have an accurate population count. They didn’t ask about color, or what nationality. That was it. We didn’t see any conspiracies then, and IF people have ‘nothing to hide’ they shouldn’t mind it.

  8. As a child in the early fourties, i remember the census takers also, and yes they went from door to door. Growing up in this great nation, I never thought I would see the day that it would start to crumble from the inside out, but the decay has started. The democrats, for years, have slowly sown the seeds of socialism and our democracy has begun to crumble. I grew up during the Second World War, the Korean War, and the Vietnam war. I was at one time a democrat, but as a young man I saw that they embraced socialism, and socialism breeds communism which leads to the loss of your personal freedom. This nation was formed by those who suffered tyranny world wide.and it is sad to see our democracy crumble. I pity those who must endure our nations demise. If you allow this to happen, I will shed tears from my grave.

  9. There is nothing that would so easily enhance the rule of law as the removal of some federal judges. As far as I know, “periods of good behavior” is neither defined in the Constitution nor has the phrase been interpreted. Neither is impeachment the required method to remove a federal judge according to the Constitution.

  10. Any US judge who is NOT anti-trump is totally unfit to be a judge in the first place . This man is a total fraud and con man who is totally unfit and unqualified to be president and should never even have been allowed to run in the first place !
    Trump is a pathological liar, a narcissistic sociopath and a career criminal who will destroy America if he is not stopped soon ! He is a traitor to America , sexual predator and a greedy, unscrupulous amoral monster who is out to enrich himself at the expense of the American people ! And this is only the tip of the iceberg of all the numerous reasons why he must be removed from office and placed in prison for life before it is too ate !
