In an unprecedented show of contempt for Elected officials, Liberal judges are overturning, staying and quashing decisions taken by Republican elected representatives all across the country. In what can only be called a hateful contempt for the Republican Governors and yes, also the President, Judges appointed by Barack Oabama are taking up the roles of activists. Do not believe me? Let me give you an example - Pulaski County circuit Judge Wendell Griffen took part in an anti-death penalty demonstration outside the state governor’s mansion on April 14th and then went from that demonstration and keeping his activist hat on he stayed the execution of 9 convicted murderers. Do you think this is proper? Taking Suo-moto cognizance of an issue that you are actively taking side on, and make an extrajudicial ruling? I believe not. This is setting a very dangerous precedence of judicial overreach and it will do nothing but make judges as fear by Conservatives as Liberals of California. We will very soon need sanctuary courts for Conservatives. These judges will like nothing better than to Today, we have a federal judge blocking President Donald Trump’s attempt to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration officials, saying the president has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending. Well, for all common sense, Federal Governemnt has the right to look at federal funding and adjust the parameters as the time change. It is the activism of negativism that aims to drag any step taken by Trump and making it ineffective. The assumption is that what ever Trump is doing is not going to work. For the first time we have a bunch of judges who can see into the future and decide the course. But how do we define judicial activism? To quote Legal zoom
Should we be alarmed about the activism? Yes. Should we be cautious while blaming the Judges? Sure. Should we stay quite? Definitely not!! Close this
Should the average citizen be concerned about judicial activism? Or are politicians just making a big fuss over nothing? And what the heck is an "activist judge" anyway? Not surprisingly, politicians debate the very definition of the term. According to judicial analyst and former superior court judge Andrew Napolitano, "There is no such thing as an activist judge. An activist judge is one whose ruling you disagree with. And if you agree with what the judge has done, you call them heroic and honest." Generally, when politicians call a judge an activist, they are accusing that judge of ruling based on his or her own personal belief system, rather than according to the law.
