This is why all Americans should be grateful for President Trump’s judicial nominees.
In 2015, a group of 21 children (<cough> I’m sure this was the children’s idea, aren’t you? Sure you are) filed a lawsuit that came to be known as Juliana vs. the United States. This pure abuse of the legal system to engage in climate change hysteria grandstanding asserted that the government was violating their constitutional rights by not sufficiently addressing the climate change crisis. The case should have been thrown out years ago, but last week, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals finally did it.
Well, good. The fact that it took this long was a disgrace, and the result of “Think of the children!” pandering. The 9th Circuit being the residue of judicial activism and liberal bias that it has long been, however, it couldn’t restrain itself from writing, “The panel reluctantly concluded that the plaintiffs’ case must be made to the political branches or to the electorate at large,.”
panel concluded. Whoever one the three judge decided that the word “reluctantly” belonged there should be forceably retired. “The panel reluctantly concluded that the United States Constitution does not permit courts to dictate national policy, nor citizens, especially those without voting privileges, to bypass our system of governance because they disagree with its policies” is what that word is telling us, and a judge who regrets how the separation of powers operates to that extent does not belong on the bench. Maybe they belong in President Elizabeth Warren’s cabinet, as she announced this week that she would eliminate student loan debt “on day one.” Lord, this woman is a shameless liar!
But I digress. Sorry. Warren’s name is becoming like “Niagara Falls” to me in the old vaudeville skit….
