The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) understand the real fight to bring about their desired fundamental transformation of the United States from a free and independent nation to a Marxist totalitarian state that is a classless society that is totally conforming and equal, lies in the courts. The role of the courts today is totally different from what the founders intended. The founders intended that the courts only give rulings. The Constitution does not give the courts the authority to make law.
However, this has become the role of the courts. Yes, the Marshall court, the courts during the FDR reign of terror, and the Warren court determined the role of the court was to make law, engineer social justice, and advance the fundamental transformation so this has become the purpose of the third branch of our government. Consequently, the battle between Senate Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) over the “blue-slip rule” escalated this week, after another one of President Trump’s judicial nominees advanced without the approval of both of their home-state senators
The blue-slip rule — which Democrats describe as a long-running Senate tradition Grassley has taken to ignore — has become a flashpoint for members on the Judiciary Committee. The committee has been tasked with considering the slew of nominees from the Trump administration, many of which have been controversial. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the committee’s top Marxist/Progressive (Democrat), said that Grassley’s decision to hold nomination hearings and approve two nominees who lacked a blue slip from a home-state senator marked a landmark change in committee tradition. Home-state senators have historically been able to block nominees by refusing to return a blue paper of approval to the committee. It’s a courtesy, rather than a formal Senate rule, and whether it’s followed is entirely up to whoever helms the Judiciary Committee — in this case, Grassley.
This is critical because the courts have become the predominant way the Marxist/Progressives are enforcing and advancing their programs. A Marxist/Progressive Judge in Pennsylvania has just taken it upon himself to flaunt the Pennsylvania legislature and redraw the congressional district map that will probably swing four house seats to the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) side. Nothing in the United States Constitution gives any member of the court the right, power, or duty to determine congressional districts. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have never allowed the United States Constitution to prevent them from moving forward their agenda of transforming the United States from a free and independent country into a Marxist totalitarian classes state that is totally conforming and totally equal.
Former Obama regime EPA administrator Gina McCarthy says that regulations struck down by the Trump administration won't carry weight in court. McCarthy, who was the Environmental Protection Agency chief from 2013 to 2017, called the recent political targeting of regulations at the agency a "real problem."
"I think the important thing is none of them should be touched unless the administration has a real reason to touch them, other than it was done under the Obama administration, and that is the real problem that we see," McCarthy said.
The former administrator who has been an outspoken opponent of changes made under current EPA head Scott Pruitt, specifically mentioned the administration's desire to change the Clean Water Rule, also known as the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule.
"We see the Clean Water rule being proposed to be repealed, all that rule really did was do what the Supreme Court and what science told us to do to make sure we are protecting the rivers and streams that are necessary to ensure safe drinking water and fishable and swimmable waters," McCarthy said.
"That is being challenged just because the president told them to do that in an executive order. That’s legally not going to hold up."
McCarthy is probably correct. The courts have taken it upon themselves while overstepping their Constitutional authority, that they can rule, not on the content of the regulation or law, but what they determine to be the motive and thinking of the law. The Supreme Court has done this, as have appellate courts, and now district courts. One court said he ruled against a lawfully written administrative order because of things Trump said during the campaign. Another court recently ruled that the current administration’s position on DCAC is unconstitutional because the administration said DACA is unconstitutional.
No wonder the Senate Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are so adamant that the so called blue-slip rule be treated like a law or even like a part of the Untied States Constitution. That is how much the Marxist movement depends on the courts. Thank you Senator Grassley for acting in the best interest of freedom and independence and actually adhering to “rule of law” to restore the Constitutionally mandated role of the Judicial Branch of government.
