Americans voted for change last year. They voted for a man who
promised to crack down on illegal immigration, halt the refugee influx and
protect the country from terrorist infiltration. But when Donald Trump tried
to do those things, he found his path blocked by federal judges.
“Over the last few months, it’s become more clear to people that they
voted for a certain outcome and it’s being nullified by these district
judges,” said Daniel Horowitz, a senior editor of the Conservative Review.
Soon after the implementation of Trump’s temporary ban on travelers
from seven countries and all refugees, U.S. District Judge James Robart in
Seattle blocked the order. When the Trump administration revised the ban,
removing Iraq from the list of banned countries, U.S. District Judge Theodore
Chuang in Maryland and U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii blocked
the new order. After Trump signed an executive order seeking to withhold
federal funding from sanctuary cities, which defy federal immigration law,
U.S. District Judge William Orrick III in San Francisco blocked that order,
too. And all the judicial blocking was either illegal or nullified one aspect
or another of the U.S. Constitution.
Three of those four judges owe their lifetime appointments to Barack
Obama. Social transformation without representation, the phenomenon of
unelected judges issuing nationwide rulings on foundational issues, such as
immigration, that the framers of the U.S. Constitution meant to be decided by
the elected branches of the government. This social transformation is
currently leading the nation to the left politically.
“What the Democrats have is a perfect racket now where they no longer
need to push [their agenda],” Horowitz said. “Even when they lose, their
legacy lives on in the courts, and that’s what you’re seeing now. Donald
Trump won the election, but it’s meaningless. You can’t even enforce
foundational immigration laws because even though the Democrats don’t have
the power, they have the courts doing it.”
Many conservatives stress the need to elect Republican presidents who
will appoint better judges, but Horowitz pointed out that has not worked well
in the past. Robart of Seattle, who blocked Trump’s initial travel ban, was a
George W. Bush appointee.
Horowitz solution is to strip the judiciary of the power they have
taken from the legislative and executive branches. “The Constitution says
Congress can make exceptions and regulations to the jurisdiction of the
courts,” Horowitz said. Congress could simply choose to strip the courts of
jurisdiction over marriage, immigration or anything else. No need to amend
the constitution if Congress would exercise its own power. “Everyone says we
need originalists on the court, but we actually need originalists in
Congress,” he insisted. “They not only control the subject matter
jurisdiction, they control their entire structure,” he said.
There is another issue that concerns Horowitz. “The courts are
throwing out every single Republican redistricting map – every one,” he
revealed. “No Democrat maps, but every Republican map. That gets to the core
of Republican power in the state legislatures, and I think if that reaches a
feverish pitch, that’s when we’re going to see a tipping point.”
“Courts of justice are corrupt. Rulers are actuated by desire for gain
and love of sensual pleasure. Intemperance has beclouded the faculties of
many so that Satan has almost complete control of them. Jurists are
perverted, bribed, deluded. Drunkenness and revelry, passion, envy,
dishonesty of every sort, are represented among those who administer the
laws. “Justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and
equity cannot enter. Isaiah 59:14.” The Great Controversy, page 586.

false witness against the innocent.” Signs of the Times, January 20, 1881.
