When President Trump was inaugurated, it quickly became clear that the Leftists were going to use every opportunity to stymie the work of the newly-elected Commander-In-Chief, because they felt so foolish for having fallen for the fake poll numbers that showed Hillary Clinton winning handily.
The Left has gone into overdrive to ensure that no matter how big or how small a step forward in the right direction for the country, they will be throwing monkey wrenches into the works to slow down the progress of the Trump administration. If you noticed, they’ve have been doing this in a variety of ways, including having a paltry amount of his appointments yet completed (a mere 60-70 out of over 1K).
The other way they have been scoring temporary wins has been through the lowly practice of Liberal judge shopping. Very recently, President Trump pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio, however, an activist judge decided to completely violate Article II of the Constitution and push for the removal of the president’s pardon!
In a stunning move straight out of “The Twilight Zone,” an out-of-control, liberal activist judge has doggedly refused to throw out a conviction against former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whom President Donald Trump pardoned last month, demanding instead that both Arpaio and the Justice Department first convince her.
“In a filing Thursday, U.S. District Judge Susan R. Bolton wrote she wasn’t convinced that she could scrub the guilty verdict from Arpaio’s record,” reported The Washington Post. “Instead, she signaled she was considering simply dropping the criminal case but letting the conviction stand — unless the government can persuade her otherwise.”
As noted by John F. Banzhaf III, a professor of public interest law at the George Washington University Law School, this shocking moves reeks of heavy-handed judicial activism — namely, a specific type he refers to as “Trump law.”
It’s “a method of judging cases which is aimed specifically at countering some of the practices of President Trump, even if this development means creating new legal principles and/or overlooking (or at least minimizing) other established ones,” he explained for LawNewz.
Following Arpaio’s pardon last month, his attorneys rightly asked Bolton to dismiss the case against him and vacate the conviction for criminal contempt of court he had received two months prior for willfully ignoring a federal judge’s order by continuing to enforce immigration laws.
She’s also flying in the face of common procedure.
“The Government appears to agree with the Defendant, but furnishes no authority conferring so broad a scope to orders of vacatur issued under similar circumstances,” she said Thursday.
Apparently, Judge Bolton, who was nominated to her post by former President Bill Clinton in 2000, has zero interest in actual constitutional law — because if she did, she’d know better.
Judge Bolton and the Leftist Jackass Brigade will continue their march toward self-annihilation with this ridiculous attempt to by-pass the US Constitution. With a clear mandate from the American people to stop this Regressive movement in its tracks, the Democrats can only hurt themselves even more.
This, like all other attempts to throw roadblocks in the way of the Trump Train roaring toward making America great, will fall short and be reversed. But the fact that we have to continually listen to the whining and the bleating of these little children in their tremendous temper tantrum is sad commentary for the times.
