Obama Judges Obstructing Justice: Nearly 40 Injunctions Against Trump After ONLY TWO Against Obama
Attorney General Barr last week ripped federal judges and their injunctions against President Trump. These judges are taking ‘unprecedented power’ over the Executive Branch.
The Washington Times reported last week –
Attorney General William P. Barr on Tuesday railed against federal courts issuing nationwide injunctions blocking President Trump from implementing his policies, saying they wield “unprecedented power.”
In a speech before the American Law Institute, Mr. Barr said such injunctions block politicians of all stripes from enacting the voters’ will.
“One judge can, in effect, cancel the policy with the stroke of the pen,” he said. “No official in the United States government can exercise that kind of nationwide power, with the sole exception of the president. And the Constitution subjects him to nationwide election, among other constitutional checks, as a prerequisite to wielding that power.”
Mr. Barr pointed the finger squarely at the American Law Institute for contributing to the problem. He blamed a 2010 commentary it published saying individual cases are the same as aggregate litigation because in both cases the relief would apply to one or several individuals.
That’s wrong, Mr. Barr said, because it ignores prior legal precedent.
The Times reports [emphasis added] –
Since Mr. Trump took office, federal courts have issued 37 nationwide injunctions against his policies, Mr. Barr said. During President Barack Obama’s first two years, the courts issued two injunctions and only 27 were issued during the 20th century, according to Justice Department data.
President Trump has complained about Obama selected judges who are responsible for many, if not all of these injunctions. Chief Justice Roberts decided to publicly rebuke the President for this line saying that in essence all judges are the same. This response was definitely uncalled for and out of line by the Chief Justice and President Trump responded.
Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have “Obama judges,” and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country. It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an “independent judiciary,” but if it is why……

This was back in 2018 and by the time of AG Barr’s presentation last week there were 37 injunctions against President Trump. This doesn’t count the injunctions since by an Obama judge aborting a Mississippi abortion law from being initiated last week and another Obama appointed judge preventing the President’s efforts to fund building the border wall which also happened last week.
We no longer have judges that judge, we have Obama judges that are activists. Obama clearly did all he could to destroy America in every way.
