When President Donald Trump tweeted out that the Supreme Court had ruled in his favor for his infamous “travel ban,” I had an immediate feeling of relief. Relief that the courts affirmed the President’s duty to protect America and American citizens from enemies to the Republic, foreign and domestic. Relief that foreign invaders, as Trump called them, would not be allowed to drain our welfare system any longer, or turn large swaths of America into “no-go zones” like our brothers and sisters across the pond have allowed over in Europe.
The Constitution grants the President power as commander-in-chief to direct resources towards foreign invasions and migration from countries that pose a direct threat to our way of life. Article II, Section II: The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
The Supremes noted in their decision that:
By its plain language, §1182(f) grants the President broad discretion to suspend the entry of aliens into the United States. The President lawfully exercised that discretion based on his findings—following a worldwide, multi-agency review—that entry of the covered aliens would be detrimental to the national interest. And plain-tiffs’ attempts to identify a conflict with other provisions in the INA, and their appeal to the statute’s purposes and legislative history, fail to overcome the clear statutory language. The text of §1182(f) states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
America is not Europe. We respect individual liberty, especially religious liberty. Islamic extremism is real, and it poses a direct threat to religious liberty. Our Constitution was crafted to uphold our Constitutional Democratic Republic and to insure its longevity by creating a necessary system of checks and balances. If a violent mob wants to allow foreign invaders into the country (Congressional Democrats and RINO Republicans), the Constitution gave authority to the executive branch to uphold the rule of law as commander in chief. If the violent mob has corrupted the courts at the lower level, the Supreme Court is there to remind them of the powers authorized in the Constitution. It is within the President’s power to execute his authority concerning migration. Democrats have basically deemed the constitution as null and void, in practice.
The 9th district court is just the tip of the iceberg with our lower courts. It would not be hyperbole to say that Americans should vote out their lower justices for the next 20 years until they start interpreting the Constitution as it is written. For now, we will be content with the fact that we elected a President who has built the Supreme Court with an aim of reestablishing the rule of law throughout the country. For now, we will rely on the Supremacy clause. Tomorrow, we will fire every justice that feels the Constitution can be manipulated and distorted to push an agenda that is antithetical to the words as they are written.
