Judicial activism

Conservative National Association of Scholars Commends President Trump: No More Law by Dear Colleague Letter

Law by bureaucracy is just as pernicious and perhaps more insidious than law by judicial activism. The bureaucracy, unlike the judiciary, is often nameless and faceless.  The result in both cases is the same, of course: Depriving citizens of a government of, by, and for the people.  NAS supports measures to prevent this and thanks President Trump for this executive action.

The Left Loves Activist Judges — Unless They Rule Right

Doug Bandow, The American Spectator

The Trump administration is transforming the courts. If there is one signature success of the Trump administration, it is nominating a large number of judges who realize that they are jurists, not legislators. Leftists who want to “pack the courts” should stop whining and learn from the Trump experience — win elections and nominate good candidates. If instead they formally turn the judiciary into another arm of politics, their opponents are likely to return the favor, with predictably disastrous results for all.
