Gowdy: No one elected judges to 'second guess' commander in chief on national security

by WorldTribune Staff, February 12, 2017

Rep. Trey Gowdy, in a blistering rebuke of an appeals court's decision that blocked President Donald Trump's temporary immigration ban, said "there is no right to come to this country for non-citizens."

Gowdy, who chairs the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations, said "no one familiar with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals should be surprised at today's ruling. The 9th Circuit has a well-earned reputation for being presumptively reversible.

Meanwhile, a report on Feb. 11 by the Center for Immigration Studies said that, since 9/11, 72 individuals from the seven Muslim-majority countries covered by Trump's "extreme vetting" executive order have been convicted of terrorism.

Somalia led the list with 20 convicted terrorists, followed by Yemen and Iraq with 19 each, Syria 7, Iran 4, Libya 2 and Sudan 1.

The South Carolina Republican, a former federal prosecutor, continued: "The Court cites Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678, 695 (2001) for the proposition that even aliens who have committed and been convicted of certain crimes while in the U.S. unlawfully may have due process rights with respect to travel to or from the United States. In addition, the Court ventures curiously into its own role in reviewing a President’s national security conclusions.

"It seems clear to most of us — not on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — there is no right to come to this country for non-citizens of the United States. It also seems clear judges are neither in a position, practically or jurisprudentially, to second guess national security determinations made by the Commander in Chief. There is a reason we elect the Commander in Chief and do not elect federal judges."

Gowdy concluded: "For those, like Alexander Hamilton, who once or now wondered if the Judicial Branch would be too weak. Wonder no more."

The Center for Immigration Studies' director of policy studies, Jessica M. Vaughan, based her report on a 2016 report from the Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, then chaired by new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, that found 380 out of 580 people convicted in terror cases since 9/11 were foreign-born.

"These immigrant terrorists lived in at least 16 different states, with the largest number from the terror-associated countries living in New York (10), Minnesota (8), California (8), and Michigan (6)," the report said.

"Ironically, Minnesota was one of the states suing to block Trump's order to pause entries from the terror-associated countries, claiming it harmed the state. At least two of the terrorists were living in Washington, which joined with Minnesota in the lawsuit to block the order."

  1. Founders never intended "case law" to override the Constitution, only to require Legislative revisions.

  2. It doesnt make sense, the courts are the 1st ones to agree to hide Gov crimes under national security orders qhich many times involve torture , murder and the like and of course 911 and JFK. BIT LATE TO BE ACTING LIKE THE GOOD GUYS . Are they saying someone in China can sue the Gov because they are refused an entry permit because they have a constitutional right even though they have never left china . The laws are stuffed in USA people are serving life for minor crimes under the mandatory sentence rule while real criminals like OLIVER NORTH , AND THE TERRORISTS IN WEATHER UNDERGROUND GO FREE FOR MURDER , NO WONDER EVERYONE IS SO PISSED OFF . A case where an Indian woman who was not ever qualified used fake evidence to imprison 45,000 people , she gets 5 yrs they are all still in prison . Trump needs to fix this mess real quick . BUSH . CLINTON / OBAMA DRUG RUNNING , wtf" And now you want to fix the drug problem they created ?? Make it all legal collect the taxes like it used to be before 1930 . aLL MAFIA GOV'S WANT THEIR CUT .

  3. Continental Congress founded with the gauarantee of common-law for the people, with people taking the sovereignty that previously was in the hands of the monarch. The land congress, the Continental Congress created the organic laws, and in the process the United States took the sea, commerce, civil law business services and had no gaurantee or requirement of any form of government only internal operations as it is military in nature high seas and inland navigable waterways. With the lazy Kings and Queens, the people allowing the land congress offices to remain empty since 1860. DC municipal and Federal "United States" ( includes total of 57 states as Obama mentioned) does business so it would seem Trump is in fact the CEO "Old Man" or commander over the operating courts. The constitution had the bill of rights added as it was perceived those allowed powerful jobs would possibly cheat and try to over throw the people. It is "we the people" not "we the citizens' or "we the persons" and is clearly written in the record. Kinda stupid when you think of any other sovereigns in the world who usually do not just create a work group and give them a blank check book then go watch TV and not even care or know they are the sovereigns.

  4. Whilst i like Gowdy it's worth remembering his best mate is L GRAHAM . No one ever sees the enemy within . But the outcome of the American Revolution caused serious compli
    cations for the
    provincial grand lodges that had been operating through
    out the North American colonies
    prior to the war. All of the lodges operating in the colonies had derived their authority
    from one of the four British grand lodges. Each grand lodge a
    lso had provincial grand
    lodges at work in the colonies. Four of the five Modern provincial grand masters serving . at the time of the conflict had remained loyal
    to Britain: William Allen of Pennsylvania
    Egerton Leigh of S
    , John Rowe of Bosto
    n, and John Johnson of N
    When the dust settled after the war, American Freemasons
    were forced to confront the
    question of "the relationship of political loy
    alties to fraternal relations."
    carefully and eloquently discusses
    various r
    esponses to this issue, including the rejected
    proposal to create an American Grand Lodge
    with Washington as Grand Master
    , in
    Chapter Four of
    Revolutionary Brotherhood.
    Ultimately, he argues, American
    Freemasonry was able to divert the source of its legit
    imacy away from the British Grand
    Lodges and toward its status as a repu
    blican institution, well
    suited to the needs of the
    new nation in the making. Meanwhile, the British had no choice but to watch as, one by
    one, their provincial grand lodges (some wit
    h very illustrious pedigrees) declared
    themselves independent of their connection to Britain and set up state grand lodges
    all up
    and down
    the eastern seaboard.
    But the story of the Revolution's impact on Anglo
    American fraternal relations
    does not end there. Not long after the Revolution,
    Upper Canadian Masons became so
    disgruntled over the neglect of their provincial grand master that they broke off and set
    a rival grand lodge. Though they did not contemplate a total break from Britain at this
    point, their actions foreshadowed the Canadian Masonic independence movement of the
    1850s, when Irish Freemasons took the lead in severing ties with the British Grand
    Lodges and forming a separate Grand Lodge of Canada (in the Province of Ontario).
