The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit – the most radical far left of all of our federal appellate circuit courts – has just ruled that the temporary moratorium for 90 days of immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries, including the terrorist-designated state sponsor of terrorism, the Islamic Republic of Iran, is unconstitutional and must be ultimately ruled invalid in ongoing legal proceedings.
While this decision was to be expected, what is most telling is that, even under the Ninth Circuit’s reasoning, there are large parts of President Trump’s executive order that are clearly constitutional and thus valid, most notably his temporary moratorium on entering the United States for persons who are not citizens or permanent residents. Even the Ninth Circuit was forced to admit that non-citizens and non-permanent residents cannot claim any constitutional rights.
Of course, the leftist Ninth Circuit strained to find ways to effectively invalidate President Trump’s entire executive order, throwing the proverbial “baby out with the bathwater.” Assisting the three-judge panel with this legal hit on the president and thus endangering the national security of you and your loved ones was an “unholy alliance” of Muslims, the Jewish left, a liberal lower-court judge in Seattle and, of course, the despicable American Civil Liberties Union (“ACLU”) – a borderline communist, atheist, pro-abortion, radical gay, lesbian and transgender, pro-illegal immigrant and anarchist public interest group that many years ago even supported neo-Nazis who wanted to march provocatively and incite deadly violence in Skokie, Illinois, a town with a large Jewish population. Incredibly, the ACLU is predominantly composed of leftist Jews, with just its latest president, Susan N. Herman, being a member of the tribe.
While I expected this from the ACLU, which, as a conservative Jew and patriot, I have fought tooth and nail throughout my legal career, what was really the most troubling was the collaboration between Muslim and leftist Jewish groups who intervened before the Ninth Circuit by filing amicus curiae briefs, as I had for Freedom Watch Inc. Specifically representing Muslim interests that would like to open the floodgates on immigration from these predominantly Muslim countries were the Islamic Medical Association of North America, Muslim Advocates, National Arab American Medical Association and the Network of Arab-American Professionals. Representing so-called Jewish interests – the following groups thankfully are not representative of mainstream Jewry – were the despicable Anti-Defamation League, or ADL, and the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, or JFGS.
Many years ago, I had my own personal experience with the ADL when I asked its then president, Benjamin Foxman, for support to seek review of unethical misconduct by an anti-Semitic federal judge in Los Angeles, one William D. Keller. Foxman turned me down, ostensibly because Keller’s fellow federal judges in L.A. would appear at ADL fundraisers to help the group line its financial coffers. As I write in my autobiography, “Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment” (which is still in print and available at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com), at the time the ADL relished going after the premier American Jew hater and bigot Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam, but would not help me overturn a ruling that Keller had made over my representation of Jews and other minorities in a case before him, because attacking Farrakhan raised “beacoup” money for the organization. This assessment did not come from me at the time, but former Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who had also unsuccessfully asked for support from the ADL regarding another anti-Semitic ruling by Judge Keller.
So here you have it: The Muslims, leftist Jews and their groups and the ACLU teaming up to gut President Trump’s executive order that was intended to protect the American people from infiltrating Islamic terrorists, who place Jews at the top of their hit list. Coupled with this, of course, was the leftist bent of the lower-court judge, James Robart, who initially blocked the implementation of President Trump’s temporary 90-day ban to construct a plan to extremely vet immigrants from the seven predominantly Muslim countries.
After Judge Robart’s initial ruling, where he issued a temporary restraining order, President Trump rightfully criticized him for his blatantly political action. In response, The Donald was himself severely criticized, even by his own Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, who had met with the dishonest Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal (another leftist Jew), and leaked that Gorsuch has apparently called the president’s statements “demoralizing” and “disheartening.” This criticism by Judge Gorsuch is regrettably typical of the judiciary. Rather than owning up to their own improper actions, the “establishment judicial club” circles the wagons and protects itself. While Freedom Watch’s Judicial Selection Strike Force Coalition endorsed Judge Gorsuch, I did comment in interviews that he is a card-carrying member of the judicial establishment, even if he commendably is a strict constructionist in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia.
President Trump’s criticism of the politicization of the judiciary was correct and a welcome disinfecting breath of fresh air to its viral intellectual dishonesty. That his own Supreme Court nominee would undercut him is regrettable, but not the issue. The president, working with our Judicial Selection Strike Force Coalition (see JudicialSelectionStrikeForce.org or FreedomWatchUSA.org), must now make it a top priority to nominate to the bench judges who are independent and respect the rule of law. I am confident that the commander in chief, now given his latest personal experience with the lawlessness on the federal bench, will have even increased resolve to work with me and others to find these jurists, who are necessary to protect Americans not just from the tyranny comprised of the unholy alliance of Muslims, leftist Jews and the ACLU and others, but from the tyranny of the other two branches of government.
It is time that we cleaned up the judiciary, which has largely, with few exceptions, become a cesspool of personal interest and lawless wrongdoing when it suits their leftist agendas. The latest Judge Robart and Ninth Circuit outrages, endangering our national security, are just the latest example of “judicial tyranny.”
