Dobbs Asks “One Of Smartest Guys” If Rogue Judges Should Be Impeached

David Rifkin, a senior fellow with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, who Lou Dobbs describes as “one of the smartest fellows in the country, joins him to discuss the two wildcat “so-called” judges who ruled against the second terrorist travel ban executive order. Mr. Rifkin is proof that being smart has nothing to do with your ability to coordinate your outfit for a television appearance.

Rifkin is asked for his thoughts, replying, “They’ve gone rogue, they ruled in a way that’s contrary to the Constitution, which gives the two political branches, acting jointly as is case here, nearly absolute authority in this area, but more importantly than that, they also have actually gone rogue vis-a-vis the Supreme Court. They have completely ignored a body of precedent at the Supreme Court level that make it abundantly clear that this executive order should have been upheld, frankly, the first executive order should have been upheld. They didn’t even try to explain away those precedents, they [sic] just absolutely unbelievable behavior.”

Dobbs addresses the five judges from the 9th Circuit Court that dissented from the view of their colleagues in stating that the original executive order was valid, legitimate and within the authority of the President and should have been upheld. Rifkin says the 9th Circuit is no longer functioning as a court but rather as an ideological body. He says the first ruling would have been overturned by the Supreme Court and the second one, if it ends up there, will likewise be overturned.”

Dobbs asks Rifkin if he concurs that there is a deep state operating within the judiciary. Rifkin agrees, saying, “It’s beyond sort of liberal judges voting their policy views and not the law. There is a view that I’ve heard expressed that there is such deep antipathy towards Trump on the part of some judges that basically is the coming of a Trump only approach. So for example, all other presidents exercise the same authority, very similar to this executive order, that’s fine; but not Trump. Nothing that Trump does merits judicial approval.”

He adds, “And it’s a very dangerous approach, because look, the framers would tell you the judges are supposed to exercise not will, but judgment. And this is absolutely, profoundly non-judicial.” Dobbs asks what can  be done about it, “can they be impeached, can they be removed and why isn’t the ABA speaking out.

Rifkin dismisses the ABA as a very liberal organization. He says “I wouldn’t impeach them,” suggesting it would be enough to be rebuked by the Supreme Court.

Maybe Dobbs was a little overly generous with his praise of Rifkin. Sometimes when someone messes up they need to lose their job. These to fit into that category and they shouldn’t ever hold similar positions again. By not impeaching them they remain on the bench and are free to impose their perverted “justice” on others who don’t have the notoriety or the deep finances of the Trump administration to fight back.

They both deserve to be immediately suspended from making any decisions and impeachment proceedings begun. We can’t allow the plague of rogue judges to continue to debase our nation and our judicial system nor should we. They should be impeached and any others like them. That will go a long way to reeling in this kind of scandalous behavior. Leaving them in place will only encourage more of the same.

    It is hard to conceive how the non-citizen Barack Hussein Obama Jr. was ever nominated to the office of POTUS, much less elected and re-elected by citizens and, I am sure, non-citizens as well. Are there no honest men in the Democrat party? Or, failing that, does no state or national elected official vet candidates for eligibility? God save America. And I thank God for allowing Donald Trump to beat out the next Democrat candidate who, although Constitutionally eligible, would certainly have continued the Obama program of communism and eventual anarchy for the benefit of our enemies.

    Why does it matter if the Liberals cry? He broke the law. We don’t know if he has been successful in dividing our military. We haven’t seen them all, They are still dropping off sleepers, giving them our social security, houses, and disability. They are awaiting a signal from Obama or Soros or both, to attack us. This is America. Arrest them, and at least charge him with fraud and lock him up.

    Why not Impeach Non-Judicial Judges?

  5. Stan, I understand what you are saying, and I’d love to see that happen, but liberals would never allow it to happen. There would be hysteria at the level we can’t imagine if obozo were thrown in jail where he belongs. It would be the civil war we are projecting if President Trump should happen to be “overthrown” like the Dems want.
    If someone can find a way to make it happen without absolutely tearing the country apart, I hope it happens, and soon!

  6. I’m telling you, People of America, we have to bite the bullet regarding what’s going down in the country these days:

    We are now experiencing, and in spades, the consequences of our erroneous action in letting an ineligible candidate occupy the Oval Office – and for a double crack at taking down this country at that. The mistake is crystal clear now: Obama was ineligible because he was and is not a “natural born” citizen, which by clear definition at the time that it was codified in the Constitution as an eligibility requirement for the office of the presidency is a person “born in the country, of parents who are citizens”. (Source: E. de Vattel’s ‘The Law of Nations,’ Book One, Ch. XIX, Sect 212; look it up. It’s right there on the Internet, not in some dusty law school library.) The whole POINT of the exercise was to make sure – at least as sure as the constitutional Framers could make things in their time; the rest was up to succeeding generations of American citizens – that the occupant of that particular office, who would as well, then, become the Commander in Chief of the nation’s military forces, had NO DUAL OR OTHERWISE CONFLICTING LOYALTIES OR ALLEGIANCES OR INFLUENCES. Had SOLE ALLEGIANCE to the U.S. And now here we are, understanding full well now why they put that particular eligibility requirement in their contract for that particular federal office. Since extended to the office of the VP, by constitutional amendment – the only way that such a substantive change in the Constitution COULD be made. Which has not happened, in this particularly crucial matter.

    So our course is clear: Obama must be arrested and held for trial – and on a number of other charges by now, including perjury, and treason. And at the least, found guilty of the ineligibility/fraud charge. And that way, all of the legislation that he signed into law, and all of the E.O.’s that he issued, and all of the appointments that he made – including to the SCOTUS and lesser courts – go with him, into the dust bin. (For it to be as though he had never been there. For, he was never there legally.) And that is how we get rid of these Obama-appointee arrogant activist judges; who are ruling, not by way of the rule of law, but by way of their personal socio-political proclivities. And, of course, all of the decisions that those judges were and are involved crucially in go into the dust bin as well.

    And that way, we take our country back, from those who have been intent on overthrowing this nation, and its rule of law – its Constitution – that they hold in such low regard that they have placed themselves above it. Like the despots that they are, and of right ought to be called, and considered.

  7. Obummer had just visited this town and I’d bet he want there to deliver something to grease his palm with and furthermore, this was a former classmate?
