Skip to comments.Supreme Court Hands Trump The Power To Fire Thousands Of Judges (Wonderful News Alert)

Perhaps the biggest roadblock to Trumps MAGA agenda has been radical, liberal judges. These men and women, appointed by previous presidents and other powers, have interfered with President Trumps lawful authority.
But thats all about to change.
Judges are supposed to be impartial. They have a solemn duty to uphold our laws. Decisions made by judges can decide the fate of not just one person, but millions. Judges that preside over federal issues can very well affect the lives of every last American.
Weve seen how radical judges can harm our country. Obama-appointed judges have overstepped their bounds by attacking Trumps lawful executive orders. They have allowed their personal, political views to violate their responsibilities.
Not only that, but certain groups within our government have been appointing judgeswithout the approval of the president. This is clearly a violation of the Constitution. Thankfully, the Supreme Court felt so too. Now many questionable judges are about to get their walking papers.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday expanded presidential control over pivotal jobs in federal agencies, ruling that the way the Securities and Exchange Commission selected its in-house judges to enforce investor-protection laws was improper.
In a 7-2 ruling, the justices overturned a lower court ruling that had endorsed the SECs in-house judge hiring practice that operated autonomously from the president.
The ruling could reverberate through the federal government, which has nearly 2,000 administrative law judges deciding matters as varied as unfair trade practices, veterans benefits and patent infringement. Such a ruling could also make it easier for some of these judges to be fired by political appointees.

One more huge win for the Donald ... !!
This is potentially very good news, IF The Donald actually decides to wield this power. IF. Do not forget J. Sessions and Company have been around for months, with the president openly saying it’s not working out. Yet Mr. Trump does not actually put the hammer down and fire the A.G.
Mr. Trump can use this possibility as a bargaining tool.
This, I do expect him to do in short order.
Maybe it’s time to write a speech or two about the notorious 9th Circuit Court. Let them sweat a little bit.
They are not beyond reproach after all!
And then there is that meddling dolt in Hawaii as well.
However, this is GREAT NEWS!
The important question is who is eligible. Are there sitting judges in federal courts not approved by the Senate? I doubt it.
Washington Post 24?
This seems to be about administrative law judges only.
I suspect he is biding his time and will act immediately aftter the November elections.
If he is allowed to appoint judges does that mean the current ones are subject to salary adjustments for performance—a dollar a year?
I’m leery of this.
Sure it’s great when we’re in the driver’s seat, but imagine another Obama coming along. He’d take the cleaver to every decent judge he could.
Reading he article alongside the one you posted here
it would seem that the entire crop of judges would be deserving of this unexpected vacation.
Alrighty, POTUS TRUMP, make the most of what you have available. Make hay while the sun shines. Get these black robed stooges off our backs and behind bars/sunning their pale, frail bodies on the beach somewhere off the coast of Mexico.
Good thing there’s a job boom too. Burger King can use ex-judges.
This does not cover judges that are already subject to Senate confirmation - just those in the bowels of the bureaucracy.
“nearly 2,000 administrative law judges deciding matters as varied as unfair trade practices, veterans benefits and patent infringement.”
One thing of significance: IMMIGRATION JUDGES!
One judge might grant 90% of cases, and another might deny 90% (not kidding).
*This seems to be about administrative law judges only.*
Yep, but there are a LOT of asministrative judges.
Consider who would replace Sessions and it would take months or forever to get a new appointee through the Senate.
This has nothing to do with the Judiciary. These are administrative law judges - these are not the ones in District and Circuit courts already nominated and approved by the Senate. Those folks are going no where.
The ruling was extensively covered and concerns only the administrative law judges. This has nothing to do with the existing judges on District and Circuit courts. All these judges were nominated and approved by the Senate, so they are going nowhere.
That is an excellent point!
