WE ARE ALSO LEARNING THAT THE SAME JUDGE ALSO DONATED OVER $20,000 TO FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA’S CAMPAIGN BEFORE BEING APPOINTED. SO IS THE LEFT CONSTANT JUDGE SHOPPING TURNING THE BORDER CRISIS INTO A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS, THEIR DEBATE IT REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST PETER AND FORMER CONSULTANT FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND MUSTAFA, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US ON MEMORIAL DAY, WE APPRECIATE IT.>>GREAT TO BE WITH YOU.>>SO AS WE BEGIN OUR DISCUSSION LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE DONATIONS SPECIFICALLY INVOLVING THE JUDGE WHOSE NAME IS HAYWOOD GILLIAM. $20,000 FOR BARACK OBAMA CAMPAIGN, 4500 FOR THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE AND ABOUT 3100 FOR BURLINGTON LLP PAC, PAC THAT SUPPORTS CANDIDATES FROM BOTH PARTIES, CONTRIBUTIONS TOTAL AROUND $29,000, SO WE WILL START WITH YOU, PETER, IN TERMS OF WHAT WE ARE CALLING JUDICIAL ACTIVISM, IS THIS APPROPRIATE?>>WELL, IT’S ENTIRELY INAPPROPRIATE, REMEMBER THIS ISN’T THE ONLY THING THAT’S HAPPENED THIS WEEK, THERE’S BEEN 3 OBAMA APPOINTED JUDGES WHO ALSO DONATED TO THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN WHO HAVE NOW RULED AGAINST THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION THIS WEEK. AT THE END OF THE DAY CLEAR-CUT CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUES LIKE THE JUDGE SAID, WHY ARE THESE DEMOCRATS FILING CASES IN PLACES LIKE OAKLAND, LIKE NEW YORK, LIKE WASHINGTON, D.C.? IT’S NOT BY ACCIDENT, IT’S BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO AGENDA IN 2020, THEY HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO SHUT DOWN THE PRESIDENT AND THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO. HEATHER: MUSTAFA IS THIS A WAY TO DELAY BORDER WALL?>>I FIND IT IRONIC WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PRESIDENT TAKING MONEY MEANT FOR CONGRESS FOR ARMY PERSONNEL AND MOVING TO BORDER WALL THAT ME BORDER WALL THAT MÉXICO IS SUPPOSED TO PAY FOR. BUTTING THAT ASIDE FOR A MINUTE, LOOK, THE PRESIDENT SHOULD HAVE LEARNED THIS IN THIRD GRADE AND WE ALL DID WHICH IS THE POWER OF THE PURSE IS WITH THE CONGRESS AND VERY CLEAR SEPARATION OF POWERS, CONGRESS APPROPRIATES THE MONEY TO GO TO ARMY PERSONNEL AND THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO USE IT FOR SOMETHING ELSE.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU CAN CRY CONSTITUTIONAL FOUL ALL YOU WANT BUT IF YOU HAVEN’T STOOD FOR CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLES AT ALL IN YOUR POLITICIAN, WHY ARE YOU COMING ON HERE TALKING ABOUT CONSTITUTION. HEATHER: MUSTAFA, JUDGE SHOPPING AROUND THE COUNTRY TO SEE WHERE THEY CAN FIND A JOB THAT WILL STOP SOMETHING IN THE PROCESS.>>THAT’S A TALKING POINT BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. THIS IS A CLEAR-CUT CASE, THE JUDGE WROTE A LENGTHY ON WHAT THE LAW IS, YOU WON’T HAVE SCHOLARS ABOUT THE CASE, THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS LOSING IN THE COURTS BECAUSE IT ONLY HAS POLITICAL ARGUMENT AND NOT LEGAL ARGUMENT AND THE 3 BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT THAT WE ARE UNDER THE CONSTITUTION HAVE TO BE RESPECTED AND THE PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS SUPPORTERS HAVE TO COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT WE LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WHERE WE HAVE A CONSTITUTION AND NO MAN IS ABOVE THE LAW INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. HEATHER: ALL RIGHT, WELL, THANK YOU BOTH FOR JOINING US, WE APPRECIATE IT, AS WE SAID, AT THE BEGINNING THE PRESIDENT HAS ASKED FOR EXPEDITED APPEAL,

  1. I always love it when most people opposing Trump in political media are Democrat and not born here! Lol! How about a new law that states if a non born US citizen talks poorly against our President publicly that they can be help legally liable and depending on the degree of the threat….be deported and never allowed back!

  2. Mustafa, why do you hate America? Or have you just adopted democratic beliefs? Now we know why you are a former consultant

  3. Obama did not get congressional approval to send 15 billion to Iran .Obama was the dictator Obama care was found unconstitutional by a judge it Texas why did it go in to effect..So sick of the left's double standard. Not a of have the memory of a goldfish.

  4. The left only uses at Constitution when they got no legs stand on other than that the road just throw the Constitution out and deal with nothing there a socialist Democrat platform.

  5. What is wrong with these judges? Why is no one but the President caring about this? Why is NO ONE listening to the People…..the CITIZEN whom they work for?

  6. The case is not clear cut that’s why democrats judge shop. Congress delegated broad authority to the president to move money by declaring a national emergency. There is nothing unconstitutional about it because congress gave him the authority to act. If Congress wants to stop him, then they have the option of negating his action through a majority vote in the House and Senate. The court should stay out of it.

  7. Here is the relevant statute US code Title 8 chapter 12 subsection 1182 (f) courtesy of Cornell Law School database
    Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President

    Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.

    Rather straightforward IMHO

  8. This judge essentially bought his seat on the court. He gave Obama a stack of cash and gets repaid by being given a position. That's the way Democrat corruption works. Just look at the way the Clinton's have always operated. For Democrats, the government has always been for sale, at the right price.

  9. Hey Mustafa we have federal laws that are being broken in droves day after day and you Democrats because you have your agenda because you need a voting base because you're voting base is all but gone will not enforce federal law so allow every illegal alien into our country which cost us billions and billions and billions of dollars every year but it's not just about the money it's about the crime the murders the rapes Mustafa piece of s***

  10. If it was a simple cut and dry decision based upon the Constitution there wouldn't be a need for a 56 page explanation. 56 pages screams pulling at straws.

  11. I find it IRONIC that this POTUS ?(TRUMP) put more into building our MILITARY than OBAMA ever dreamed of!

  12. Men and Women died to secure the safety of our Country! Borders are necessary to do help in that. What do you think all of the Fallen say about not protecting our Country from enemies!

  13. It's a type of treason and these judges should be smacked down, fired and impeached at the very least.

  14. Might as well face it: America, to these people is Paradise and the Gringo is looked upon as, "Daddy," because the leaders of these Banana Republics are also allied with the drug cartels, so they turn their backs on their own race, their own people so they can enjoy the lavish lifestyle of parties, orgies, vacations, fancy cars and caviar at the American taxpayer's dime. The Libs are fools and they would like us conservatives to join the clown car they drive, and condemn the future of our kids.

  15. Another Obama Judge with blood on his hands! These Judges should be in Prison for putting our country's safety at risk. They are in conflict of interest & Obstructing Justice.

  16. So let me get this right
    a judge who supposed to obey the law is selling out our country for $20,000….. what a scum bag….. he needs to be removed from the bench.

  17. This Mustafa Tameez is a liar!!! You can see the spin on him!!!! What!!!!????? A Democratic Strategist! He is nothing!

  18. Some idiots are so blind to see the price Mexico is paying now. The hospital are stressed, their police and immigration officials ,the city streets are used as toilets.

  19. These worthless MF paid off POS judges need a intervention. Start off by kicking their crooked butts over the wall and never let them return.

  20. Wow, the POTUS runs the country, but it's his fault nothings getting done.
    This is like fighting inside a burning house, soon there will be nothing left to fight about but food and water for the rest of us.
    Never in a million years would I think Da-donald would douche the system.
    MAGA2020

  21. Let’s see, we really need an unqualified, incompetent, bigot with a racist agenda to rule on this. Where’s the nearest trump appointee to a lifetime position.

  22. Wtf! its ok but if it was trump its a problem and impeach him! Seriously why do we not overthrow these liberal cocksuckers! Why do they have all this power???? Take it back and away from them!

  23. Trump follows the constitution. The "left" don't honor the constitution. Trump is awesome! God bless Trump!

  24. Hey, you know you, "God Bless you Mr. President" people? Trump is a bad man. He is cruel as Stalin. He lies, he cheats and he steals. He is a greedy scoundrel. He would sell you and your family out for a dollar which he would never pay. Explain his brutality and hate (and fear) to your children as though it is a good thing. Anyone supporting this man is either stupid, crazy or both.

  25. ELECTRIFIED WALL WITH WARNING SIGNS. NO ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO FORCE THEMSELVES INTO THE 🇺🇸. DISOBEDIENCE CANT BE TOLERATED

  26. FORGET MEXICO PAYING. WHY DOES MEXICO HAVE SUCH WEALTH RUNNING RAMPANT. AND THE PEOPLE RUNNING TO 🇺🇸

  27. If they aren't judge shopping then why are all of these rulings coming from Obama appointees in the 9th Circuit?

  28. Why does it matter who they donated to? Do we really want that to be a litmus test? Because there's been a plenty of judges appointed by the Trump administration do we really want to start asking if that was pre req to them being appointed?

  29. Mustafa Tameez, clearly your party has no problem stomping on the Constitution of this country when necessary to advance their agenda. YOU might be blind to it, but people who DO see it happening [over and over and OVER again!] believe your party is becoming the party of the Communist States of North America [hey, I'm throwing Canada in there with us because they are WELL on their way, too]. You DON'T want to allow the President to FULFILL HIS DUTY UNDER THE CONSTITUTION, to protect the citizens of America from hundreds of thousands of UNKNOWN, UNVERIFIED PEOPLE flooding our southern border. They are bringing DISEASES into this country that we had SUCCESSFULLY ERADICATED until recently, when non-citizens brought them with them across an unsecured border. They bring violent gangs and terrorists with them. They bring drugs, and they traffic children and adults. You want to END FREE SPEECH, which is pretty evident to anybody with eyes to see and ears to hear. You want to END OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHT to defend ourselves, our loved ones and our property from those who seek to harm us. Your last president [?] allowed AMERICAN CITIZENS to be spied on, thereby shredding their FOURTH AMENDMENT RIGHTS. You are ALLOWING the past administration to continue to harass and abuse our duly elected President by OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE from being served in your FAILED COUP AGAINST THE DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT, bought and paid for by the DNC and HRC. The past administration is STILL ACTIVE AND ACTIVELY TRYING TO REMOVE OUR PRESIDENT! We The People are SICK AND TIRED OF YOUR PARTY'S TYRANNICAL PRESENCE! You are a DISGRACE & AN AFFRONT TO EVERYTHING THIS NATION HAS STOOD FOR FOR THE PAST 243 YEARS!

  30. Seems to me that every Democrat for the past several years has been lying and breaking the law. So no u can't say we are all under the same law

  31. Trump is NOT fighting judges. Hes fighting Obama who is still running his administration from his living room

  32. AT LEAST WE AMERICANS KNOW WHO THESE JUDGES ARE, WE KNOW WHO THE ENEMY IS THEY HAVE EXPOSED THEMSELVES. IN GOD WE TRUST.

  33. Sad when the public knows more than they do. In a National Emergency, It trumps the Congress in the purse. He can take money from anywhere to use to deal with the National Emergency. Funny how they only state one part of the real story. You all need to go back to school. And learn to tell the truth. The American People, the ones you answer to, Want this WALL built. On top of that, It was the Military that came to Trump and told him they found some money he can use to build that wall. And they would help build it. So it seems to me your all full of it. Neither one of you are in office right now and have no clout in my books to say what the President can or cannot do. Trump was the person the People Elected not you. Trump is doing what the people want done. Unless you are missing the point there is a National Emergency and a major invasion going on at our southern border and one beginning at our Northern border. Just shows how stupid and short sited you idiots really are. You have done nothing but proven how ill informed all 3 of you are and that you are there to only spread Lies and Misinformation. When are you going to change your name back to the real name of your News Company CNN.

  34. isn't it iroonic that the libturds said nothing about the constitution when bath house barry was in the white house?

  35. A democrat talking about playing by the rules. That's rich. They are a bunch of criminals, just like this guy.

  36. Declare martial law and this judge would be dead in 24 hours. This is justice for traitors. we need to get this country back on track and anyone that doesn't want that needs to find another place to live or stay here and die.

  37. What's with all these democrats and judge pay offs? I mean to have a respectable president you can't have his campaign getting donations through lawful means instead you have to have his campaign paying off hookers by illegal means. ROFLMAO!

  38. Trump all the way 2020 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸👊🏻🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻

  39. There is no question that they are Absolutely Judge Shopping and if you think about that it shows how they are NOT actually able to be impartial and in fact this is considered to b criminal especially if they continuously do this over and over. I mean if lawyers know they can take certain info to a particular Judge to get a specific result then what point is there in having a Justice system if you can go to a Judge and get him to do exactly what you want. This is just like the Jussie Smollette case where a Prosecutor was bought by her knowing a former chief of staff for Michele Obama who made a few phone calls and expressed their Strong feelings on how they thought it should go. So where is any truth and Justice if Lawyers and Judges can be bouht and sold; and can the Police, FBI , and CIA also be bought for the result you want.. If then there will be No Justice and Is a Constitutional Crisis.

  40. We all knew mexico would not pay for it, stop thinking that effects our opinions on building a wall. Or the fact the President is working to keep our borders safe.
    We live in the US and our borders are being invaded, The Democrats are allowing an invasion not upholding their job to keep citizens safe. They are conspiring to undermine the safety and sovereignty of this nation, they should be charged with treason.

  41. I think we must have went to different schools. My twelve years of public school didn't include one second of how the government works or anything about the law. "Mustafa, ew, say it again. Mustafa", that's probably the closest we ever got. Democrats are out of touch with reality or they are lizard people and just acting stupid.

  42. American's are liter y SICK and tired off all these illegal Aliens committing all these FRAUDS on the American People..

  43. Only question is, is the Oboozo appointed judge a federal judge?, because if not then he is a district judge and has no ruling about a federal Inquisition like building a border wall.
    But even if he is a appointed State Supreme court Justice he can only reside over anything that effects his State so unless his state is a border State he can do nothing legally.
    Seems to me that allot of these State Judges & Local judges think they have the same powers
    as a Federal Judge.

  44. Hell if I had known you could buy a judge seat for $29 grand I would have cashed in my IRA and bought me a lifetime job feeding at the trough. Look at this America.

  45. I find it particularly ironic to hear Democrats talking about no man being above the law, all the while spitting in the face of the law. They are disgusting in their hypocrisy and their total lack of ethics. There is no other creature that can hold up a blue flag and call it red with seeming utter conviction all the while knowing full well that it is blue. They have shown that there are no depths to which they will not sink, and that they can do so without the slightest pang of conscience, as they have no shame.

  46. A judge from San Franciso district influencing events at the legislative level of this country? I believe it's time for the Supreme Court to weigh in on this "legislation from the bench". Judges are elected to ENFORCE the laws, not make or interpret them. :-/

  47. The thing is Trump is not losing in the courts once the injunctions are pushed to the higher courts. The leftist however do put in cases everywhere until they reach an activist judge who will put politics before the law and constitution. The Court system as always been an avenue that the Dems and the left try to corrupt so they can have laws they can never get pushed through congress established by activist judges.

  48. He's o Only want to talk about the Constitution was good for him but yet they were to ruin the Constitution by taking away the 2nd amendment
