The Left is leaning on lawless judges to try and stick it to Trump.

In the two years since Trump has been elected president, we have seen many attempts from the Left to resist his presidency with all their might. More often than not, their tries have failed miserably. But there is one area where the #Resistance movement has worked: judicial activism.

There has been a disturbing increase in the amount of federally appointed judges across the country using their benches and power as #Resistance mills, striking down Trump policies left and right. Conservatives are rightly worried about these abuses of power because the judiciary is acting in a manner directly contrary to the powers delegated to it in the Constitution.

The most recent example highlights a blow to religious liberty. Previously, religious institutions were not required to provide mandated contraception coverage if it violated religious beliefs. This included the cases involving Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters of the Poor during Obama’s presidency.

President Trump was working to implement religious and moral exemptions. As David French wrote:

The Trump administration has left the Obama regulatory mandate largely intact, but it has slightly expanded the employer moral and religious exemption in a manner it believes is consistent with the requirements of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Judicial appointees have taken upon themselves to cement the legacy of Obama’s presidency. Above all else, they believe that it is their moral right to oppose everything that Trump is trying to accomplish. It is my belief, and one that is hopefully shared in the conservative sphere, that the judiciary must be reined in and returned to its original purpose.
