It is apparently official now. Three unelected leftist lawyers wearing black robes and sitting as justices on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals have confirmed a ruling by a lower court unelected leftist federal judge that stays the Executive Order on immigration issued by the elected President of the United States. As I pointed out in the previous article on the subject I posted on my blog the actions of the President were entirely reasonable, legal, and constitutional.

          Neither of the courts has listened to any evidence or made a ruling on the constitutionality of the order, but instead have decided it is “probably” unconstitutional. However, in order to understand what these four judges have actually done it is necessary to read between the lines and determine the true implications of this ruling which are staggering.

          Essentially the ruling says that elections no longer matter, the will of the American people no longer matters, and most importantly the Constitution of the United States no longer matters. So according to the men and women in black we are no longer a Constitutional Republic, but a judicial dictatorship where all decisions including those dealing the with the all-important matters of our national security, and the lives of American citizens will now be made not by Congress and the President of the United States, but by a hand full of elite federal judges. This effectively dissolves the Constitutional establishment of three separate, but equal branches of government.

          Ironically the federal judiciary has for years being undermining the Constitutional rights of American citizens that are protected in the Bill of Rights. This includes central rights like freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to keep and bear arms, the right to due process of law and numerous others. Yet, as of today they decided to confer Constitutional rights on citizens of foreign countries that have never had these rights.

          This includes a “right” of potential terrorists to enter the U.S. without being properly vetted and to possibly kill Americans. Americans should be outraged. This is clearly a political decision made to advance the leftist agenda and stifle the desire of Americans to protect their homes and families from the type chaos of that is occurring in Europe and other areas of the world.

Go Back

President Trump sees this, the American People see this however we clearly have other people who don't care the slightest bit. We are in this wreckage on account of Obama, Bush and other people who didn't consider our national security important.


Where does this leave us? Will this go to the Supreme Court? If so, how many months are we looking at before another decision is handed down or will it be a split decision? In the meantime, we continue allowing people into this country who don't have our best interests at heart. President Trump sees this, the American People see this but we obviously have others who don't give a damn. We are in this mess thanks to Obama, Bush and others who didn't take our national security seriously. On a more positive note (if one can even say this) the decision by these judges has now forced them out into the open. I believe this is the only "saving grace" that has emerged as you can rebuke and fight an enemy if they expose themselves (or are exposed) but not if they continue to be hidden and protected. And please don't make the argument that their decision was based on "compassion." Compassion for whom? The American people who have already suffered or the terrorists hiding in our midst? This decision and my opinion only, was done with malicious intent--intent on doing harm (to this country and her citizens). If the courts can make this determination then there's hope but in the meantime we're wasting valuable time. Scurrilous, anti-American people are peppered throughout Congress, entrenched in numerous organizations and backed up their compatriots in the news media. One good thing that has emerged from this is that President Trump has exposed these judges and this circuit court to the light of day. But in doing so he has to continue to make the argument that this decision has further exposed this country and Americans to more harm and that if another attack occurs here it is this decision and those who supported it who are To Blame, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. If he doesn't keep hammering this message home, the Left will (already are) pulling out all the stops to heap blame on the President. All President Trump did was follow the constitution. Apparently the Left doesn't like this. President Trump has poked the enemy in the eye and they don't like it. We are in uncharted and very dangerous territory. President Trump and his cabinet need our prayers. Remember, this country was founded "Under God" and "In God We Trust." And we're not going to be able to withstand the trials coming if we don't Trust in Him.


Excellent comments, Michael. This looks to be a VERY deep end of the swamp.

We a court created Constitutional crisis.

I'm told that 70% of Federal Judges were Obama appointed. None of these were, but it seems that the courts have been tipped radical left. As a Constitutional lawyer, and given the crippled status of the Supreme Court, what are the President's best options for action?


Mr. Connolly, is there any way these unelected judges can be removed from office? It is an outrage at what they've done. However, it seems the DOJ attorneys were not very well prepared to argue their case. Bad enough that the panel of judges kept interrupting them. I pray that lots of citizens will be calling their senators and representatives about this outrageous action. Thank you so much for being a "watchman on the wall" for us.


All President Trump is doing is enforcing a law passed back in 1952, Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, also The Immigration Act of 1965. The problem we do enforce our laws and most judges do not they exist. These laws are still on there. congress is trying to break up the Ninth circuit court of appeals.
