The day after Judge Robart’s unconstitutional, unlawful and tyrannical “decision,” 114 refugees from Syria, Iran, and Somalia rushed in. We all recall Kerry’s speech in Berlin when he said the United States increased the numbers for refugee resettlement to 85,000 in fiscal year 2016, including a minimum of 10,000 from Syria. This number was increased to 100,000 in 2017 by Obama administration.
One of the first executive orders issued by President Donald Trump was to cut this number to 50,000. So far, the United States has accepted over 35,000 refugees – and it is only mid-February. Fortunately, this means that only another approx. 15,000 will be allowed in this fiscal year, regardless of the unfortunate Robart’s judicial misstep and overreach.
It is important to underscore that Judge James Robart has no jurisdiction over the issues of national security and the state of Washington has neither legal standing nor any business interfering with our national security. As Mark Levin stated, “Robart is a left-wing hack” with a history of representing refugees, arguing against free speech, even stating “black lives matter” in the courtroom.
This case was brought before the 9th Circuit on purpose, because it is the most extreme left-wing circuit in the country. This is not about judicial review – this is about politics. What is more, there is no “judicial review” power in the Constitution. This power refers to the review of executive appointments in Marbury v. Madison, which in itself was a political decision by Chief Justice Marshall who had been a political leader of the Federalist Party and a former Secretary of State with personal vendetta against his cousin, President Jefferson.
The “overbroad” part of Robart’s decision is tantamount to socialist totalitarianism. Some may refer to it as “judicial tyranny,” but there is nothing “judicial” about it. It is tyranny PERIOD. It is the tyranny of the judiciary usurped by the Progressive Left. The Judiciary is assuming the role of a “fundamental changer” of our country.
The Presidential Order is entirely within the plenary powers of the President – and it is also one of his chief duties – to protect us. When Jimmy Carter banned Iranians and Obama banned Cubans, we did not see the media cry foul because of the former’s persuasion or the latter’s political beliefs…
Judge Robart ignored the law, denigrated the Constitution, used the law to destroy the law. No doubt, he is proud of his super-activist totalitarian ruling, touting his bright green bow-tie in the court-room as if to say: “I am beyond red-and-blue – I am all green!” Yes, we know what that means.
