This past week, the Obama appointed Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor lashed out at her colleagues on the court who are proving to be ‘strict constitutionalists’, rather than voting with her and her ‘loose constitutionalists’ colleagues, such as her and Ginsberg, as they prove to be more in line with judicial activism, rather than basing their cases on constitutional law!
In fact, during her dissent against the court decision, she lashed out at her colleagues, because they ruled in favor of the Trump Administration, rather than with the Democrats who have launched a record number of lawsuits at the Administration, designed to block the President from implementing his agenda that he promised the American people!
CNN was one of the first of the Establishment Media outlets to report her condescending dissent, as they wrote…
The justice wrote that granting emergency applications often upends “the normal appellate process” while “putting a thumb on the scale in favor of the party that won.” Targeting her conservative colleagues, she said “most troublingly, the Court’s recent behavior” has benefited “one litigant over all others.”
Sotomayor’s dissent was in response to the court’s 5-4 order granting the government’s request to allow its controversial “public charge” rule to go into effect in every state. The rule makes it more difficult for immigrants to obtain legal status if they use public benefits like food stamps and housing vouchers. Although the three other liberal justices on the bench also dissented, they remained silent and did not join Sotomayor’s decision.
“Claiming one emergency after another, the Government has recently sought stays in an unprecedented number of cases,” Sotomayor said. “It is hard to say what is more troubling,” she said, pointing to the case at hand, “that the Government would seek this extraordinary relief seemingly as a matter of course, or that the Court would grant it.” She noted that in the case at hand, the lower court order that the Supreme Court lifted was narrow and only impacted one state.
The other judicial activist judges have refused to join in with Sotomayor’s politically motivated dissent, but it isn’t surprising, in that the Supreme Court Justices are supposed to be politically neutral! However, Sotomayor isn’t the only Justice to show political motivations, which has long been considered taboo for the SCOTUS Justices!
Even the radical left-wing Slate pointed out during then-candidate Trump’s Presidential bid that Ruth Bader-Ginsberg crossed a political line when she attacked Donald Trump’s candidacy for President in 2016! They wrote…
Ruth Bader Ginsburg initiated a potent little throw-down with presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump last week, and both her detractors and defenders have been surprised to observe that she’s doubled down in the days since. First she told the Associated Press that she didn’t even want to “think about” the prospect of a Trump presidency and the New York Times that a Trump presidency was the kind of thing that would have driven her late husband to say they should move to New Zealand.* This week she cheerfully told Joan Biskupic at CNN that Trump is a “faker” who makes things up as he goes along.
They also noted that left-wing activists who typically laud praise upon Ginsberg for her devoted implementation of Judicial Activism, rather than subscribing to a strict interpretation of the Constitution of the United States, were shocked and concerned at her comments as a Justice! Slate added that…
With the exception of a handful of RBG fans who take the position that she should say whatever it is she wants because she is generally excellent, few on the left have found much to cheer about in Ginsburg’s gloves-off candor. As the editorial pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post have argued, it is unseemly and also perilous for the judicial branch for Ginsburg to—as the Times put it—fling herself “into the mosh pit.” Even her staunchest defenders on the Hill are more or less baffled. Some have suggested the only thing you need to understand about this story is that Notorious RBG is 83 years old.
Even the LEFT-WING MEDIA SLATE noted how Ginsberg’s conduct was improper under U.S. Judges ‘Code of Conduct! They added…
There can be no disputing that this conduct was improper under the Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges, which prohibits judges from endorsing or opposing a candidate for office, and under basic conventions that prohibit judges from overt politicking during election season. We can debate how improper it actually was, but it’s clear she upset the norms that we generally ask judges to respect. And with all due respect, it’s not a legitimate counterargument to claim that it’s OK because Ginsburg is on a lot of tote bags and T-shirts sporting a crown.
Now, with Sotomayor joining Ginsberg in becoming not only ‘Judicial Activists’, who as they see it, should re-write the Constitution through judgments rather than legislation, but they have also now entered the forbidden fray of becoming ‘Political Activist Judges’, to mimic the Middle Age Kings who decreed their will upon the population!
Regardless, Sotomayor’s dissent was in response to the court’s decision on Friday to grant the government’s request to permit the “public charge” rule to go into effect in every state, which implemented the enforcement of a longstanding law that has been on the books since 1882!
In fact, the Immigration Act of 1882 found immigrants who were “unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge,” as well as convicts, were not allowed for American citizenship and therefore denied their entry into the United States!
Ironically, President Trump is simply re-imposing a longstanding law, which the Establishment Elitists have long-ignored, for politically motivated reasons! Interestingly, President Trump isn’t even implementing the entirety of the legislation, as the law also initiated a 50cent “head tax” for each individual who illegally entered the United States, in order to cover bureaucratic expenses that they caused!
Now, starting this past Monday, regardless of the political activists on the left who sue the Trump Administrations every act, they began enforcing stringent income-based requirements for green cards and certain visas, instituting the most ambitious unilateral effort in recent history to change the trajectory of nation’s legal immigration system, and return it to some semblance of common sense!
CBS News wrote…
After multiple legal barriers blocking the implementation of the new requirements were cleared by the conservative-leaning Supreme Court, most green card applicants in the U.S. and abroad will now be subjected to a redefined. Under the rules by the Departments of State and Homeland Security, immigration officials have more power to deny applications from petitioners they deem are, or could become, an economic burden on the country.
Sotomayor made her politically motivated dissent by saing…
“It is hard to say what is more troubling, that the government would seek this extraordinary relief seemingly as a matter of course, or that the court would grant it.”
Sotomayor added that…
“the government has recently sought stays in an unprecedented number of cases [by] claiming one emergency after another,” a process which often upends “the normal “appellate process” while “putting a thumb on the scale in favor of the party that won.”
However, the President has actually remained quite restrained in his use of emergency powers, and applied it to the massive border crisis that was going on at the United States southern border! Ironically, it has been the radically-motivated Socialists and Marxists on the left who have launched an unprecedented barrage of attacks, lawsuits, and threats against the Administration, in their attempt to upend political discourse in America and create racial, cultural, and politically motivated division! Combine that with lower-court political activist judges who have leveled injunction after injunction against the Administration, in an attempt to slow down or throw a monkey-wrench into the Executive branches gears, and it has created one politically motivated constitutional crises after another!
Now, President Trump is pushing back against Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s shameful politically motivated comments against her fellow Supreme Court colleagues!
In fact, the President condemned the political statements of both Ginsberg and Sotomayor, as he said that their open and blatant bias against himself and his Administration shows that they should recuse themselves from anything related to his Administration! He stated…
His statements are actually in line with judicial precedent because, in the past, any Justice who has expressed any open bias against a party who goes before the high court is expected to recuse themselves from the case and judgment!
Ultimately, Sotomayor is yet another sign that under the Obama Administration, the Socialist wing of the party was successful in infiltrating almost every area and aspect of the government, from intelligence agencies to courts, and virtually everywhere else, with politically-motivated radical activists!
In fact, Sotomayor is one of those Obama appointments, who is expressing not only her concerns but the radical left’s concerns as well, as they worry that under the Trump Administration’s leadership, they are returning the power and wealth that they had slowly and silently stolen away from the American electorate! In fact, following Ginsberg’s alignment with the radical left in calling the President a liar, claiming that he would fail in his promises made, the President has made her into a laughing stock, showing that he is ALL ABOUT PROMISES MADE/PROMISES KEPT, unlike former politicians! Now, after the Democrats failed attempt to impeach him, and his likely imminent landslide victory in 2020, they have become desperate in their bid to stop the Trump Train!
As a result, the radical Socialists and Marxists on the left are terrified, that with a second term, and with the Republicans likely taking the House and Senate, the President’s ability to finally clean up Washington and ‘DRAIN THE SWAM’ will come to pass, even on the Supreme Court bench! Especially with the likelihood that the President will have another Supreme Court appointment, thus giving the Constitutionalists a secure and permanent majority in the highest court in the land!
