If you’re like me, you probably miss the days when America was governed by elected representatives instead of appointed lawyers in black robes.  I’m sure President Trump does, since on Tuesday, he was thwarted again – twice in one day – by federal judges.

In yet another judicial attempt to interfere with the President exercising the executive power to create the Census form, an Obama-appointed federal judge in New York barred the Justice Department from changing the lawyers they want to use to re-argue their case for adding the citizenship question to the Census form. 

So if you’re keeping score, federal judges now have the power to tell the executive branch that it can’t even pick the lawyers it wants to make the case that it shouldn’t even have to make that it should be allowed to exercise a power it already has that the courts shouldn’t even have a say over.  Here’s my question: Why do we even have elections anymore if the country is just going to be run by judges?

Incidentally, in some news you aren’t likely to hear reported on MSNBC, a Harvard University/Harris poll found that 67% of all registered voters think the Census should ask whether someone is a US citizen.  Those who approve of the citizenship question include 88% of Republicans, 63% of Independents, 58% of urban voters, 59% of black voters, and even 52% of Democrats and – brace yourself – 55% of Hispanic voters.  So if Nancy Pelosi is right about the citizenship question just being about "making America white again," then America has a very large and diverse Rainbow Coalition of white supremacists.

A federal appeals court also ruled Tuesday that President Trump doesn’t have the right to ban obnoxious trolls from his Twitter account (FYI: I do), apparently because the right to free speech was created to insure there’s no shortage of idiots saying offensive things about Trump on Twitter. No danger of that.

At least this ruling might have some reasonable Constitutional arguments behind it. Also, liberals had been celebrating it for only about five minutes when the reality of what it meant suddenly blew up in their faces.  It means they don’t get to ban trolls, either, and office holders such as AOC who did it already were immediately slapped with lawsuits.  Live by the obnoxious tweet, die by the obnoxious tweet.

    I think It is a shame when Democrats ar so scared that they will not win an election, they will try any crooked trick, legal or not, to steal an
    office in the government!

    I despise federal Judges and many other judges. I'm just praying for the day when the Almighty God gives back the power to those who once were able to exercise the higher power that legally belongs to them.
    I'm not a robot, I'm just an honest voter.

    First off my email address is not a Russian code name,
    Nibor Sevlasnog! It’s my name spelled backwards.
    Secondly, I already know what’s going to happen, NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH , ZZZERO!
    An Obama appointed judge will throw it out on the bases that the ruling was just for the president!
    And the cycle of the corrupted D.D.D.’s (Damn demon dems) will continue. Do the crime, guaranteed to do no time.
    I like most Americans are getting real cynical!
    True American patriots have a breaking point....just saying!
    TRUMP 2020 and beyond!

    Since we can't ask if someone is a citizen then why don't we have a question for just citizens, like.
    How did you become a US citizen. Birth or Naturalization. Formula is total census - citizens - legal immigrants = illegal immigrants. Problem solved.

    Allocation of federal funds could be based on total count of the census; however, Congressional districts should be determined by a citizen count. Representatives are elected by voters (citizens), and their duty is to serve those that elected them - not aliens, whether legal or illegal.

    It seems that judges can jump out on any issue they want to obstruct based upon unlimited interpretations, or should I say misinterpretations. It seems they can justify anything by manipulating words. I don't get it.

    If POTUS TRUMP appoints SCOTUS replacements for RBG and Breyer, the tide will turn.
    I would hope the justices would begin restraining lower courts,or reversing their activism.
