First paragraph tells you all you need to know.  Author doesn't understand how things work.

The process working as designed is not "activism."  He's arguing for expediency, not constitutionality.

Jeez subby, please learn:

when you want to describe controlling someone, the word is 'rein' bc that's how you control a horse

'reign' is what kings and queens do; it refers to their time on the throne and has nothing to do with contol

No, my browser is fine, the website had a glitch and now that I scanned it, it and the comments it looks like someone from Fox News with a head injury.

Well, the House GOP is making moved to curtail such lower court rulings that gum up the works of the executive

Author needs to take grammar lessons and is making moved to put head up ass.

rein in dammit. I wonder now if "reign in" is supposed to be ironic; it's not.

To reign is to be a monarch. To rein is to restrict, like horse reins.

I know I know, welcome to Fargk.

TownHall?  Must be close to elections.

I'd love to be wrong, but we've been clean for months, and now we're seeing an influx of links to these shiatty sites again?  Somethings rotten in Denfark.

"See these news stories of judges making the obviously wrong decisions? It's clear they are wrong because they conflict with my strongly held beliefs, ESPECIALLY in cases where they find laws passed or policies enacted by politicians I agree with are in part or wholly unconstitutional. That's why I have a brilliant plan: those politicians should deem those policies cases exempt from judicial review, that way the judges cannot get to it."

I mean, it's like the Constitution says - if something is unConstitutional in a district in Tennessee, it might still be perfectly by the book in Nevada districts.

Also the "judges can only decide upon a law for the parties before them" and then refers to cases where the United States is one of the parties before the courts.

Can we kick people who read Town Hall out the country and keep the Mexicans?  The Mexicans are actually providing a service to this country.

It's sad that Google or Apple or whoever is preventing you from going to a website that is a leading source of news, political commentary and analysis, which through it's affiliated websites, offers the viewer a variety of independent sources that offer trading and investment advice and related services and products.

'Gum up the works of the executive'?? Yeah, that's the point, it's called checks and balances when the executive branch does crazy shiat.

That's not even a brilliant idea, it's just reading the farking manual.  The Constitutional explicitly says Congress can choose to strip the courts of the ability to review some law or matter.
 
2018-09-14 05:19:40 PM  
This is a common government tactic.  Rather than apply a US District Court opinion nationwide, the government can elect to apply it only to the District or Circuit that issued the decision.  Often the government will do this, basically forcing the issue to be tried in multiple Districts.  Thus, if their are multiple decisions and at least one is different, it makes it easier to appeal to SCOTUS.

Congress can set limits on SCOTUS' appellate jurisdiction but not its original jurisdiction.

More precisely, this basically forces the Supremes to take the case, even if they don't want to (and a lot of times, they really don't want to).  A lot of times this results in convoluted 5-4 rulings with 17 concurrences in part and 15 dissents in part.

Pretty much everything has gone that way, and that's why we're in the position we're in.

It's also why it's good to have Avenatti on our side. I don't want him in public office, but I'm fine with him being loud.
 
2018-09-14 07:06:37 PM  
I'm not going to give Townhall a click, but what the hell would this accomplish vis-a-vis the travel ban? Do they not realize that people can leave California for Texas once they're in the country?
