Supreme Court Hands Trump The Power To Fire Thousands Of Judges
Ed. An important and CORRECT decision by the Court.
Perhaps the biggest
roadblock to Trump’s MAGA agenda has been radical, liberal judges. These men
and women, appointed by previous presidents and other powers, have interfered
with President Trump’s lawful authority.
An opportunity to remove biased judges
But that’s all about to change.
Judges are supposed
to be impartial. They have a solemn duty to uphold our laws. Decisions made by
judges can decide the fate of not just one person, but millions. Judges that
preside over federal issues can very well affect the lives of every last
We’ve seen how
radical judges can harm our country. Obama-appointed judges have overstepped
their bounds by attacking Trump’s lawful executive orders. They have allowed
their personal, political views to violate their responsibilities.
Not only that, but
certain groups within our government have been appointing judges—without the
approval of the president. This is clearly a violation of the Constitution.
Thankfully, the Supreme Court felt so too. Now many questionable judges are
about to get their walking papers.
The U.S. Supreme
Court on Thursday expanded presidential control over pivotal jobs in federal
agencies, ruling that the way the Securities and Exchange Commission selected
its in-house judges to enforce investor-protection laws was improper.
In a 7-2 ruling,
the justices overturned a lower court ruling that had endorsed the SEC’s
in-house judge hiring practice that operated autonomously from the president.
The ruling could
reverberate through the federal government, which has nearly 2,000
administrative law judges deciding matters as varied as unfair trade practices,
veterans benefits and patent infringement. Such a ruling could also make it
easier for some of these judges to be fired by political appointees.
Six of the
justices said the appointments of the judges were unconstitutional. Liberal
Justice Stephen Breyer agreed with the outcome, but said it only violated
federal administrative law. Liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia
Sotomayor dissented from the decision.
judges have long been a controversy. The Commission had the power to appoint
their own judges. These judges were overseeing crucial cases that affected
private businesses and the investment industry. Clearly, there was a conflict
It would have been
very easy for the SEC to select judges that would only vote in their favor. Or,
compromised members of the Commission could have picked judges whose rulings
would appease corrupt investment firms. You see the problem?
The President—who has
authority to appoint federal judges—was cut out of the loop. He would play a
crucial role in deciding if judges should stand or not. Instead, the SEC had
free rein. Not anymore.
This ruling can open
the door for Trump to reevaluate numerous, questionable judge seats. Judges
that are clearly letting their bias get in the way of their job might be in
trouble. Trump can allow his cabinet to take stock of sitting judges and decide
if they should, in fact, stick around.
Perhaps we’ll see
another purge in Washington. Yet more of the swamp drained.
