The sheer level of obnoxious usurpation of power by Democrat judges in the Trump era has one good side effect. It’s waking up conservatives to the fact that judicial appointments alone won’t be enough. The whole doctrine of judicial supremacy needs to be overturned.
A federal judge temporarily blocked a Trump administration policy that would have allowed governors, like Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, and other local leaders to prevent refugees from resettling in those areas.
Correction. A Clinton judge.
The Wednesday decision from Maryland-based Judge Peter J. Messitte comes just days after Abbott became the first and only state leader to opt out of the program.
The court also scolded federal judge Peter Messitte, a Clinton appointee, for not throwing out the case sooner and for refusing to let the president appeal his erroneous rulings. Judge Messitte’s faulty reasoning “blinks reality,” the court said, and his actions “amounted to a clear abuse of discretion.”
Judge Messitte’s rulings were so erroneous that the Fourth Circuit didn’t even wait for an appeal. It accepted the president’s request for writ of mandamus — a rarely granted procedural tool that allows early review of an otherwise non-appealable issue — to take the case away from Judge Messitte, reverse his rulings, and force him to throw the case out for good, without the possibility of further appeal.
Now the Clinton Judge is at it again.
