Gorsuch's Critical Trump Comments Expose Real Problem With Courts

Yesterday’s alleged comments, if true, by Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to that certified liar of a Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal — he was exposed years ago as having lied about serving in Vietnam, putting him in a league with fellow Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren lying about her American Indian heritage — underscore one of the biggest problems in our judiciary today: their generally elite arrogance that they can do no wrong and are immune from criticism and ultimate accountability.

Senator Blumenthal, sleazily violating what apparently was intended to be a confidential conversation in his Senate office with Judge Gorsuch, leaked that the jurist had harshly criticized President Trump, calling The Donald’s comments characterizing as a "political decision" Seattle Judge James Robart’s temporary restraining order enjoining the commander in chief’s temporary moratorium on immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries, as "demoralizing" and "disheartening."

While I endorsed the nomination of Judge Gorsuch as head of Freedom Watch and its Judicial Selection Strike Force Coalition, I also pointed out in interviews that he is however "judicial establishment." And, this establishment characteristically circles the proverbial wagons whenever criticized or when they feel threatened. Indeed, in federal courts, when a judge is accused of committing an unethical act, it turns to his fellow judges to determine if a violation of the Code of Judicial Ethics is violated. As a result of this "clever" and "cooked" sham of a system of non-accountability, the accused judge’s colleagues virtually always exonerate him or her from sanctions. Of course, this is not true of lawyers who are accused of stepping out of line. Judges are not hesitant to use their power of the pen and purse to freely discipline lawyers who criticize them when they stand up for their client’s rights in the face of judicial injustice and misconduct. In my autobiography "Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment," I wrote about my shocking experiences with federal judges such as William D. Keller in California and Denny Chin in New York federal courts.

A few years ago, when Supreme Court Justices Kagan and Thomas were accused of having conflicts of interest over ruling in the now infamous Obamacare case before SCOTUS, Chief Justice Roberts incredibly wrote, arrogantly and defiantly, in his annual report, that Supreme Court Justices are not accountable under the Code of Conduct for United States Judges, since their honestly and integrity are beyond reproach, their having gone through a rigorous Senate confirmation process. Roberts incredibly added that the Code is likely unconstitutional in any event, a conveniently absurd and outrageous conclusion by the chief law enforcement jurist in the land.

Thus, when Judge Neil Gorsuch allegedly reacted negatively to President Trump’s criticism of his fellow federal judge James Robart, this was hardly a surprise. The two are part of the elite and arrogant establishment judicial club, that protects itself at all costs.

President Trump was absolutely right to speak out about our politicized judiciary. It's about time that someone high in government did! I have been complaining about this dangerous "politicization" for many years, and this cancerous ailment is getting worse year by year.

Because if We the People do not have a neutral, law abiding and non-politicized judiciary, the citizenry is essentially left defenseless. And if this happens, the only alternative to mete out justice falls upon Americans of all stripes to take justice into their own hands. This would be a formula for mayhem, extreme civil unrest, and eventually violent revolution. In fact, this is what in large part sparked the American revolution, when King George III misappropriated the colonies’ criminal justice system and reinstalled before the politically hostile and unjust Royal Court of St. James in London, England.

This is why Freedom Watch’s Judicial Selection Strike Force Coalition is so important and necessary. There currently are about 100 vacancies on the federal bench that need to be filled with judges, not like James Robart, but with honest and ethical jurists who obey the law and do not go off and do what they want based on their extra-judicial political and other biases!

Ironically it is the alleged comments of Judge Gorsuch, not President Trump, which are not just "demoralizing" and "disheartening," but more egregiously represent another offensive and dangerous attack on our blind "Lady Justice."
