Pat Buchanan: President Trump Must Break The Judicial Dictatorship

Editor’s Note: As expected, the Ninth Circus has ruled against the Trump administration on the Muslim ban. No one seriously expected any other result.

As Pat Buchanan points out here, the mainstream punditry is historically illiterate:

“As for Trump’s disparagement of the judges, only someone ignorant of history can view that as frightening.

Thomas Jefferson not only refused to enforce the Alien & Sedition Acts of President John Adams, his party impeached Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase who had presided over one of the trials.

Jackson defied Chief Justice John Marshall’s prohibition against moving the Cherokees out of Georgia to west of the Mississippi, where, according to the Harvard resume of Sen. Warren, one of them bundled fruitfully with one of her ancestors, making her part Cherokee.

When Chief Justice Roger Taney declared that President Abraham Lincoln’s suspension of the writ of habeas corpus violated the Constitution, Lincoln considered sending U.S. troops to arrest the chief justice.

FDR proposed adding six justices to emasculate a Supreme Court of the “nine old men” he reviled for having declared some New Deal schemes unconstitutional.

President Eisenhower called his Supreme Court choices Earl Warren and William Brennan two of the “worst mistakes” he made as president. History bears Ike out. And here we come to the heart of the matter. …”

He always gets straight to the point:

“That a district judge would overrule the president of the United States on a matter of border security in wartime is absurd. …

Meanwhile, Trump’s White House should use the arrogant and incompetent conduct of these federal judges to make the case not only for creating a new Supreme Court, but for Congress to start using Article III, Section 2, of the Constitution–to restrict the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, and to reclaim its stolen powers.

A clipping of the court’s wings is long overdue.”

If memory serves, Buchanan has been calling for this for well over a decade now.

Update: Buchanan addressed the matter in “The Abdication of Congress and the Rise of Judicial Dictatorship” in his 2004 book Where The Right Went Wrong.

  1. It will be a sad day when Pat Buchanan is no longer with us. He’s a big reason why I am racially aware. Pat is about as acceptable as a race realist as they come, and his books and appearances on the McLaughlin Group redpilled me.

    Judges are responsible for why California is a one party third world led State. White people tried to boot out all illegals in 1994, but the Judges overturned Proposition 187. Trump must stand up the Judges just as his fellow Scotsman Andrew Jackson did.

  2. Media Jew: Are some of these Syrian Refugees Terrorists?
    Based Assad: Absolutely!
    Media Jew: But is it a significant number?
    Based Assad: That is irrelevant. 9/11 only took 15 people with bad intentions among millions of immigrants.

    • I believe Assad is going to go down in the history books as a great leader, at least among Arabs. He basically stood alone against the entire West with some Iranian help for years, until the Russians intervened.

    • Trump should appoint Assad to the US Supreme Court.

      Assad: “Every country has the right to put any regulations to [i.e., on who can] enter their country.”

      Amazing that that is an “extreme” statement in the west.

      • Just a gut feeling, but, I think Assad will be the hub of a new Middle East Trumpian scheme, and it will be a much better one than any in a very long time.

    • “The guerrilla must move amongst the people as a fish swims in the sea.” – Mao Zedong

      No Arabs in White countries, no sea for terrorists to swim.

    • Wait til you see their faces when they realize we don’t either as long as DJT and Jeff Sessions are in power.

    • When they declared the Constitution a Living Document, that was when America became a Judicial Dictatorship.

      Living Document means they interpret it any way they like.

    • ‘The Federal Courts don’t give a fuck about the Constitution or Federal Law.’

      Unless it means using it to stick it to the South.

      • “Unless it means using it to stick it to the South.”

        In other words, it exists to meet the legal needs of Yankeedom and to justify whatever schemes they have in mind.

  3. So infuriating! But we are still quite ahead of the game:

    1) Trump now gets that it isn’t about this judge or that judge, but the imbalance of powers and a flawed Constitution.

    2) The Enemy owns all terror attacks; real or staged.

    3) We are a little early on this fight anyway, as the real fight is over illegal Mexicans: first the Deep State, then immigration.

    • trumps first train pulled out of the station with “the wall” and illegal immigration. deep state can wait or be taken out along with the courts. he needs to send in troops NOW and enforce his executive order or we are done.

      • *I would agree, Coyote, if this were about a complete ban on immigration, but, as it is only over a month long delay, before more flood in, it seems more like a symbolick battle.

        To be clear : I’m rooting heavily for the president, but, either way, we are still being flooded, and the president seems unwilling to stop that.

          • Dear Afterthought,

            I wish that I saw what as going on as ‘the sprint to the finish line’.

            Unfortunately, I see it only as the very beginning of the end.

            Trends that began 20, 40, 60, 150, even 225 years ago, have blossomed into a toxick cocktail, and, though many in this country are awakening, many are not and have not.

            We have entered the late 1850s, and it will be a long way before we reach the end of a new Reconstruction Era, and can begin a new prosperity – not just in the financial sense, but, more importantly, in the cultural.

            A massive divorce has first got to come, and, because so many have a vested interest in the status quo, and because so many just plain hate change, even if that augers improvement, there is, still, going to be a whole lot of hemming and hawing – as aptly exemplified by the do-nothing congress.

            What is your reaction to your question, and to my answer?

  4. Now, if Trump and Co want to get really creative, they could do the following:

    Congress creates all courts below the Supreme Court. Congress can insert a line into any legislation that disbands all of those Courts. Bye bye judges!

    The next day, pass a bill creating the courts again, but now Trump gets to nominate ALL the judges!

    This could trigger Civil War, so timing is everything:our schedule, not theirs.

  5. Right on 100% – These judges are some of the most dangerous people in the country hiding behind their majestic black robes. Reign them in to their Constitutional jurisdictions.

  6. The Constitution empowers Congress with the power to establish Federal courts inferior to the Supreme Court, but does not *require* that Congress does so.

    Additionally, the Constitution also empowers to it to establish the jurisdiction of any such inferior court it decides to establish.

    Thus, the easy fix–and what was done in the 80s-90s when the Federal judiciary became over-obstructionist on questions of capital punishment–is for the Republican majority in both houses of Congress to simply strip the District Courts of jurisdiction on immigration and naturalization matters.

    That this could be done tomorrow, had Ryan or McConnell a single testicle between them, and is both perfectly legal and perfectly effective.

    • I agree that the jurisdiction of Judges should be curtailed but I don’t think it’s enough. They need to impeach 4 or 5 to let the message sink in. I’m not sure they have the votes though. The nuclear option already triggered by the Democrats, I joyously happy when they did so as I knew it would backfire, they only need 1/2 plus one but can they get the votes? We should impeach the justices holding up deportation and most of all we should impeach that justice from Kansas City who ruled that the schools weren’t equal and raised taxes, administered how the schools were to be improved and ruled on the law in the first place. Taking on all three branches of government into his hands. Why they let him get away with that is a symptom of our decline and how cucked our nation is. Of course the end result of all this meddling turned out to be…zero.

  7. I’VE HAD IT…

    My first motivation for voting for Trump was that he promiset to place strict-constructionalist justices on the High Yankee Court.

    He’s lived up to that promise.

    That said, te converse of that would be that he ignore the courts – like President Jackson.

    In either case, I’ve had it with the New England Court system.

    In North Carolina, we have had our community will overriden by courts writing law, instead of interpreting it; – this on integration, abortion, prayer, voting districts (many times) gay marriage and many cases I just cannot recall.

    This phenomenon is what drove me, some years back, to become a secessionist and an ardent supporter of Dr. Hill and his League – because he was the only voice I could find speaking my heart, mind, and soul.

    I’ve had it with communist justices, alien to my culture, redesigning our community, and finding justifications for flooding us with immigrants – to whom they insist on issuing a full enfranchisement, as they make us a minority in our own lands.

    They are trying to put a pistol to our head, under the guise of ‘law’.

    Too many times this has occurred, and too many times ought we have raised the Confederate flag, and we did not.

    For taking the abuse, I blame us.

    That said, if Trump wants to follow Pat Buchanan’s recommendation (my favourite political pundit and my favourite primary candidate in 1992) I’ll be behind him.

    Congress are largely kept men, and the vast majority of the judiciary anti Southern, anti White.

    That leaves the president, which is why I voted for Trump.

    It’s either guns or Trump.

    • Pat Buchanan once wrote that the House of Representatives had the power to overturn Supreme Court decisions on a simple majority vote, well, what are they waiting for if this is the case?

  8. Bloomberg: “The panel’s ruling in favor of immigrants [sic] is a victory not only for Washington and Minnesota — the states that sued — but for Facebook Inc., Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp., which said in court papers that the measure would hinder their global businesses.”

    • I agree, John. In fact, if I may – let me say this : The Constitution was written with an explicitly racist understanding; i.e. to be applied only to White property owners, over the age of 21.

      Now that the interpretive understanding has been entirely shorn, we are left to realize that, not only is The Constitution NOT racist, it is the primary shield for those anti-White tools being used to destroy the race that built the country.

      This all got it’s start with the war made on the Southern States, made by a horrible Southron scalawag.

      That planted the seeds of the new interpretation.

      After that, it was only a matter of time.

      We have to start again.

      • The white race will not be saved by a struggle of constant political maneuver against a non-racist Constitution.

        • Basically, John, in your own way, for your own reasons, you are coming to the conclusions that all of us Southern secessionists and Southern Nationalists feel…

          REFORM, OF THE CURRENT SYSTEM, is impossible.

          We must break down and begin again.

          • If John wants me dead, Captain, he sure has a funny way of showing it; as, despite his disinclination to Southern Confederates, we have become friends.

            At any rate, have a very good night.

        • They dictated it at the lodge.

          Madison: “Hey, Shlomo, uh, what’s this part in aid of?”

          Washington: “Yeah, couldn’t it be used to empower –”

          Shlomo: “– Just shut up and sign!”

    • When White men dedicate a constitution to “Ourselves and Our Posterity” at the Whitest point in that country’s history, do you really think they meant Pakistanis? DUH…

      And for the really Low IQ Morons who still didn’t get it, the first laws they passed regarding immigration said only Whites could be citizens.

        • I am not defending the US Constitution, I am calling out the intellectual dishonesty about it both here and everywhere else.

          If any White country tried to put for “Ourselves and Our Posterity” in a Constitution today, the anti-Whites would declare WAR.

          • The secret is only kept from Cuckservatives, Mr. Jackson – everybody else, particularly the Left, knows it well.

      • The problem is, Mr. Jackson, we have long been at the point where folks quote The Constitution, but have so thoroughly blackt out what you mention, here, that the whole context is hopelessly skewed.

  9. I believe many of the people who wanted this result (or were brainwashed into thinking they wanted it) are right now thinking, “why is this good? …WTF did we just ‘win’?”

  10. Bloomberg: “Washington state Solicitor General Noah Purcell argued to the appeals panel on Feb. 7 that Trump’s statements as a candidate were ample proof that the ban was intended to discriminate against Muslims.” … and so what!?

  11. The media is a clear and present danger.

    Bloomberg: “Trump read a law that gives the president authority to stop the entry of ‘any class’ of foreigner. ‘You can suspend, you can put restrictions, you can do whatever you want,’ Trump told a conference of police chiefs and sheriffs in Washington. ‘It just can’t be written any plainer or better.'”

    Look at how that is written: “Trump read a law” — as if he just read it off the back of a Corn Flakes box. No citation, no reference given, no details. Just like: “Wow, that Trump, what an idiot, right!?”

    • They want to portray the law as a sort of “so what” anachronism just like unenforced some blue laws still on the book about silly stuff like you can’t have sex with your wife on Sunday, etc. The (((new narrative))) that “America was created for foreigners” is supposed to supersede all that.

  12. The recent ruling is a casus belli: a court can declare anything unlawful as long as there is a public interest in “free flow of travel, in avoiding separation of families, and in freedom from discrimination.”

    In other words, no borders.

    Very well then, it shall be war to the last man.

  13. If the courts can dictate foreign policy they should have stopped Bush from going to war in 2003. They should have stopped Hillary from destroying Libya in 2011. 🙂

  14. Perhaps we need a “Civil War Clock” like the “Doomsday Clock” of the Cold war?

    A few minutes to midnight after this ruling?


    77% of refugees allowed into U.S. since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries

    The Washington Times, February 9, 2017

    The State Department has more than doubled the rate of refugees from Iraq, Syria and other suspect countries in the week since a federal judge’s reprieve, in what analysts said appears to be a push to admit as many people as possible before another court puts the program back on ice.

    A staggering 77 percent of the 1,100 refugees let in since Judge James L. Robart’s Feb. 3 order have been from the seven suspect countries. Nearly a third are from Syria alone — a country that Mr. Trump has ordered be banned altogether from the refugee program. Another 21 percent are from Iraq. By contrast, in the two weeks before Judge Robart’s order, just 9 percent of refugees were from Syria and 6 percent were from Iraq.

    “There’s no doubt in my mind they would be doing whatever they could to get people in before something changes because, from their perspective, their motivation is to resettle these folks. It would not be the first time that State Department officials have prioritized facilitating someone’s entry to the United States over security concerns,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies.

    • Trump isn’t pro-White. He isn’t opposed to 3rd world immigration. He only wants to admit the “safe” ones. Anti-Whites fight him on this because I suspect they fear a pro-White domino effect which could sweep him up. A domino effect that isn’t out of the question.

      • “Anti-Whites fight him on this because I suspect they fear a pro-White domino effect which could sweep him up”

        I really don’t think they are that smart. As you say they both agree that White Genocide must occur, the only thing they disagree on is how it should be done. Both groups are mental midgets is my theory.

  16. What Trump should do: withdraw all USA military in the seven states, then declare war on them and forbid entry as enemies of the USA

  17. What Trumps needs to do in the meantime is send all refugees and illegals to California, Washington, and Minnesota and then cut all their federal funding until they clean up the mess. But make sure that all their neighbor states’ borders are extremely secure with federal troops given orders to shoot all intruders on sight and shoot to kill.

    The courts need to be purged of all commies, pinkos, lefties, liberals, and “moderates.” I never met a conservative “moderate” and don’t believe they exist.

    • “conservative “moderate” and don’t believe they exist.”

      We call them Cuckservatives and there are many. The only Conservative I would trust, calls himself a Nationalist.

      • I agree, Mr. Jackson – any sort of a ‘nationalist (even a Yankee one) is infinitely more trustworthy than one who will not proclaim it.

    • The Mexicans just started infesting my northern Washington state town in a big way, ads for work are in Spanish only sometimes.
      Please, no more beaners.

      I’m still in shock that they can derail the presidents will so easy.

    • Hey, leave Minnesota alone! They voted almost exactly 50-50 for Trump, it’s the Uber class-those Bolshevik communist Jewish imports into that fair state that should be strung up by their thumbnails.

  18. Virgil, quick, come see – there goes Robert E. Lee!

    Robert E. Lee statue to be removed from Va. park after council vote

    Move is expected to cost $300,000; council has to determine how to pay for it

    By Ken Shepherd – The Washington Times – February 9, 2017

    A statue of Robert E. Lee astride his trusty steed Traveller could soon be evicted from a Charlottesville, Virginia, park named in his honor after the city’s council voted to remove the Confederate general, WTOP News reported Thursday.

    “The measure, which passed Monday, gives city officials two months to recommend how to move the equestrian monument, which has been there since 1924,” WTOP said.

    The city council still has to work out how to finance the removal of the statue, estimated to cost $300,000, according to WTOP.

  19. “according to the Harvard resume of Sen. Warren, one of them bundled fruitfully with one of her ancestors, making her part Cherokee.”

    Fauxcahontas is a Cherokee like Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Costner, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Johnny Depp, James Earl Jones, Chuck Norris, Burt Reynolds, Cameron Diaz, Tori Amos, James Garner, Crystal Gayle, Ben Harper, Jimi Hendrix, Loretta Lynn….

  20. You see goyim you can only ban Somalis after a Somali blows up a mall or ban Yemenis after a Yemeni blows up your planes or a Syrian after a Syrian shoots up a school. You can never anticipate these scoundrels actions. That’s profiling and raciiisssss goys.

  21. “but for Congress to start using Article III, Section 2, of the Constitution–to restrict the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, and to reclaim its stolen powers.”

    Boy, the Trendy Lefties would really scream, then. They’d claim it was un Constitutional and cry about the death of Democracy.

    Unfortunately, Mr Trump is not a Lawyer. That’s his chief disadvantage over the other Presidents and legislators. GH

  22. Sen. Warren, one of them bundled fruitfully with one of her ancestors, making her part Cherokee.

    She is originally from Oklahoma and lived in Texas for many years. She moved with her husband, up North.

  23. Running from court to court is a waste of time or Russian roulette at best. The anti-White judiciary will always rule against him again and again. Trump has to defy them or throw up his hands in disgust and tell his supporters “Sorry folks. That’s just how our are great Constitutional System works” blah, blah blah. This is his biggest test yet. If he fails we might as well have Clinton.

  24. No preference shall be given to any race religion or creed. Except Jews who shall be escorted to the front of every line for special treatment. Anyone read Patrick Slattery’s article on the Lautenberg Amendment where congress gave a no questions asked gibsmedat migration status to Soviet Jews in 1990…expect Trump to wedge this one in soon.

  25. The President has little help in the legislative branch and ZERO help in the Judicial Branch. That’s why it’s important for the election of Nationalists in every single office in America. Democracy is all about majority rule. We need the majority and control over all 3 branches of Government. WPWW !
