Lawyers have control and power which is way beyond many voters' knowledge and control. Indeed they've a political independence from politicians too.
The division of power is a good idea if the judiciary, lawyers, etc. form a broad spectrum. However, what if they're all Left-Liberals who're intent on thwarting democracy and thereby establishing a liberal/leftist society and state?
Lawyers almost constitute a state which is parallel to a government (in Trump's case). Put simply, no one votes for lawyers. They gain their jobs primarily because professional expertise and, more often than not, because of their strong political biases.
Take Sally Yates.
She's the just-sacked US Attorney General. She's said that female lawyers are becoming “the new heroes” in the Leftist war against Donald Trump’s travel ban. Yet over 61 million people voted for this ban and policies like it. Thus Leftist middle-class lawyers are rubbing the faces of voters in the dirt.
Trump's order placed a 90-day travel ban on people from seven countries, preventing citizens from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from being accepted for visas to enter the US.
Lawyers are vain creatures.
Leftist lawyers also bathe in their unelected political power. Lisa Bloom, for example, said that “lawyers are the new heroes, particularly female lawyers”. Who the hell is Lisa Bloom? Good question. She's not a politician, which means that not a soul has ever voted for her. Instead, she runs The Bloom Firm in Los Angeles. Lisa Bloom is explicit about her political intentions. She said:
“We take on very powerful people who violate the civil rights of ordinary Americans. We do sex discrimination cases, race discrimination cases and police misconduct cases every day.”
Ms Bloom, as a Liberal/Leftist lawyer, is keen on political activism, especially political activism which thwarts the will of the people. And that's why she, along with other lawyers, travelled to Los Angeles International Airport. Why did she do that? To offer services to possible terrorists and those being detained as a result of Trump's travel ban.
Lisa Bloom also managed to add a feminist angle to her political activism, which I'm sure Muslim immigrants and pretend refugees will much appreciate. She said:
“There were a lot of lawyers there, which is wonderful. We stand ready and able and willing to help in any way that we can.
Then she mentioned the Women's March, which I'm sure gladdened the hearts of the feminist Muslim Brotherhood and those Syrians who simply adore feminism. She said:
“The women’s march which I attended in Washington DC was such a powerful march. I think women are rising up.”
Here she explicitly articulated the power of Leftist lawfare. Yes, she believes that the travel ban is “unlikely to hold”. Then she gave her Marxist interpretation of the travel ban by saying that it's “a violation of all of the laws that we have against racial and religious discrimination”.
The White House, which is now fully aware of the power of the ideology of international socialism amongst lawyers, made the following statement about the decision to remove Ms Yates from her position:
“The acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States. This order was approved as to form and legality by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel.
“Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.
“It is time to get serious about protecting our country. Calling for tougher vetting for individuals travelling from seven dangerous places is not extreme. It is reasonable and necessary to protect our country.
Is such Leftism a minority sport?
It seemed otherwise when one saw the recent demonstrations. But Leftists have always been into demos and other kinds of “direct action”.
Take the UK's Trotskyist Stop the War Coalition, which managed to get over a million people to demonstrate against the Iraq War in 2003. I say that the Stop the War Coalition is Trotskyist, which isn't also to say that all supporters and demonstrators are Trotskyists. What matters is who controls, runs and organises these demos, not the personal details of every demonstrator.
The Left will always take to the streets. Will always use violence against opponents. And will also believe in closing down free speech. Don't be swayed by the many automatons who go on these demos. For every one of these middle-class Leftists on a demo there are hundreds of patriots at home or at work trying to live their lives.
