… Look in the Mirror , Madame Associate Justice [#Sotomayor]…

.. she thinks that there is no such thing as ” judicial activism . ” Well , well ..

.. all she has to do is look in the mirror . She is the archtype of the radical judicial activist ..

.. judicial activism is , by definition , the construct of laws and / or parts of THE US Constitution and its Amendments . Doing so takes them entirely out of the course of their original and accepted meaning …

.. It is also the process of , in effect , writing law from the bench . A judge ‘ s job and role in our system is to interpret the law . They are to do so within the constructs of the US Constition . They are to do so only within the US Constition , and not using other legal works , such as UN declarations …

.. there are other examples of judicial activism in D.C. . All she needs to do is to ” look down the hall ” at the U.S. Supreme Court . Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the quintecential judicial activist . One that is more recent is her fellow ObamaCrap appointee , Elena Kagan …

.. judicial activism is a cancer on the body politic and our legal system . It must be stopped , smashed , and then finally be crushed …

… Er , No ! [#fight for Religious Liberty in D.C.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 20th,2016

.. somehow , even being in the Nation ‘ s capital , the D.C. City Council seems to have not gotten the message …t

.. what is the City Council doing ? They are trying to force any person or organization [whether they be for – profit or non – profit] to bend to their legal will . Specifically , they want these groups to adopt standards related to sexual orientation in legal and other matters …

.. it repeals an exemption that existed in law for many decades . Now , the city ‘ s Human Rights Act will control affairs , which is even more sweeping an issue regarding sexual orientation . No , bad move . It should not happen . It must not happen . Congress must step in …

.. Congress has a clear power in the Constitution as regards to the government of the Nation ‘ s Seat of Government . Much of the time , especially with Home Rule , Congress stays out of the way . However , there are times that Congress either needs to or must step in . In this case , Congress must step in , whether POTUS likes it or not ….

…it must do so in this case , and edit D.C. law to ensure that individuals and organizations rights are protected in the nation ‘ s capital . It may end up wrapping in gun rights , as regards Palmer v DC as well , if the D.C. City Council does not get its act together and follow the Home Rule Act , as well as the Constitution and the Bill of Rights ….

— [update] — right now , this one is tied up in court . it will be for  some time , though …
