Whenever the President initiates a policy through executive order or new rules through bureaucracy, activists hit the phones. They “shop” for activist judges who can be compelled to block the initiative through federal injunction. This has paralyzed the administration in many ways by allowing single judges in single districts universal power to prevent actions from the White House.
Attorney General William Barr penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last week calling for an end to nationwide injunctions. In it, he detailed a very clear case to bring an end to the practice of blocking every action by the White House through progressive activism on the bench. The Supreme Court has essentially shared temporary power with every federal judge in the nation, leaving it wide open for opposition to block literally everything they try to do.
“It is indeed well past time for our judiciary to re-examine a practice that embitters the political life of the nation, flouts constitutional principles, and stultifies sound judicial administration, all at the cost of public confidence in our institutions,” Barr wrote.
Oppression from the bench keeps the President from doing his job and harms the American people by preventing sound policies from seeing the light of day. This supremacy from the bench must come to an abrupt, unceremonious end.
