gavel with Lady of JusticeA Virginia congressman has introduced a bill aimed at putting a halt to the judicial activism that has kept Obama's radical policies in place.

Republican Dave Brat has introduced H.R. 4927 to amend title 28 of the United States Code to limit the authority of district courts in providing injunctive relief encompassing the entire country. In layman's terms, that means liberal activist judges will not be able to usurp the president's constitutional authority on issues like the travel ban, DACA, and transgender social engineering in the military.

"The Congress is given the power over the courts, except the Supreme Court, and most folks aren't aware of that," Brat explained in his introduction. "The courts are supposed to interpret the law, not make the law. And so I put this bill in place to send a strong signal and to change the way the courts are ordered."

Brat points out that district judges have no power to nullify nationwide policies.

"It just reasserts that we have the right to get rid of the bad judges who are making these injunctions on federal states," he submits. "So the bill's primary purpose is just to make it clear that federal district judges cannot make injunctions that apply to the nation as a whole."
