I hope the kind reader is familiar enough with current events to grasp the significance here.
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
On January 27, 2017, President Trump issued Executive Order No. 13769, entitled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” The executive order expressly cited 8 USC, sec. 1182(f) and quoted its language.
As a better man than I has said, even a bad high school student could read and understand the meaning of these words, and the holding of this law.
Now, what is to be done in a republic governed not by men, but by laws, when a so-called judge erratically and without any color of legal authority orders the executive, during wartime, to cease to perform an action which lies squarely and unambiguously in the executive authority?
Rewriting and proclaiming the Foreign Terrorist executive order is a first step; impeaching any and all judges who exceed their authority is a second step; the Congress has the power, under the Constitution, to limit the jurisdiction of federal Circuit courts, and this power is not restricted by any clause in the constitution — and this would also be a powerful tool for punishing the usurpation by the judiciary of powers not given it, and deterring such usurpations in the future.
Merely ignoring the court, as Lincoln did in like circumstances, or Jackson, weakens an already fragile illusion of public peace and order. It would be an irrevocable step. I do not believe the Right are willing to take that step, and live in the anarchy which would result. The Left must be given more time further to weaken themselves, lose more of their sanity, shrink in numbers, and hence form less of a threat to public peace, before the tocsin is rung and the sword of war is drawn against them.
But, absent the merciful intervention of God, that war is nigh.
The Left has lost any willingness to see reason, not just in this issue, but in all. They have fully retreated to a paranoid fantasy world where Trump is literally Hitler. They will shriek and gibber and fling themselves on the floor in transports of fury akin to epileptic spasms, chewing the carpet and rolling in their own spew, concerning Mr Trump relatively mild remarks rebuking the unconstitutional and life-threatening behavior of an activist judge, or a comically irrational and oft-overruled bench of circuit court judges, but the selfsame paragons of federalist purity said nothing, nor will say anything now, to rebuke Mr Obama publicly upbraiding the Supreme Court during the 2010 State of the Union address for its decision in Citizens United.
The Congressional convention called for in Mark Levin’s THE LIBERTY AMENDMENT is still the only sound longterm strategy for removing the monkey-paws of the cannibalistic Morlocks of the Left from the levers of power, from our lives, our wealth, and our fates, and allowing each of us once more to be the steward of his own life, without a nursemaid or zookeeper looking after us.
