Kritocracy Then Chaos

Imagine if in some local courthouse, we discover that the judges are giving accused child pornographers a free pass. The accused come into the system, get booked and then a judge finds some reason to either let them free on their own recognizance or simply drops the charges. After a while, someone notices that this sleepy little courthouse has a rather high number of people arrested for kiddie porn, but that all of them get set free on some technicality by one of the judges. The public would want some answers.

Upon further inquiry, it is learned that the head judge belongs to some weird club that thinks the age of consent is immoral, that adults should be free to have sex with children and consume child pornography. Once installed at the court house, he hired other judges from his club, as well as clerks and secretaries. The whole courthouse was full of these people. Further, the child porn people heard about it so they would travel to this jurisdiction to indulge in their fetish, knowing the local court would give them a free pass.

Needless to say, such a thing would be the scandal of the century. Now, instead of something abhorrent like kiddie porn, let’s say the secret club is composed of people loyal to some strange religion or bizarre ideology. They think the laws of the country are immoral and seek to overturn the entire legal system. Instead of operating in a local courthouse, they are targeting the Federal system. In other words, it is the same sort of conspiracy, but the motivation is ideological and the target is national.

That’s what we have happening in the Federal court system. The system is riddled with judges who belong to a bizarre political cult. They are members of a legal sub-cult that does not accept the rule of law. Instead, they think the law and the enforcement of the law should always be in support of their cult’s radical agenda. As such, they no longer abide by the law as written and refuse to obey the authority that issues the law. That is what we are seeing on a daily basis, as Federal judges revolt against the legal system.

This is not a new thing. The legendary ninth circuit out west has been a dumping ground for lunatics appointed to the federal bench by their coreligionists. Rulings come out of the ninth circuit, only to be struck down on appeal. The reason the ninth existed, was that everyone acknowledged the existence of this cult, but instead of exterminating it and its members, the idea was to keep them bottled up in specific circuits. It was like a quarantine around an infected zone. Rather than kill the afflicted, they would be isolated.

To continue the metaphor, the virus has jumped the quarantine and now the entire system is showing signs of infection. For two years the Trump administration has been plagued with federal judges who just make up rulings out of thin air. In many cases they are ruling on behalf of plaintiffs who have no standing in the court. In other cases, they are simply making up legal theories so bizarre they would get a first year law student dismissed from school on mental health grounds. The Federal bench is in revolt against the rule of law.

In this particular case, the law is clear. It’s not just US law, but international law. There is a legal process for applying for asylum. No country is required to accept anyone who does not follow the procedures. US law is crystal clear on the issue, yet this judge is making up law that is direct conflict with black letter law. This is no less deranged than if the judge stood up, stripped off his clothes and declared he is an invisible chicken and that everyone in the court must cluck in worship to him. This judge is not mentally fit.

Yet, this judge is not an exception. He is now the rule. The Federal system is full of his fellow cultists, trained in a bizarre legal theory that insists there is no law, just an unwritten ideology that is the rejection of the very basis of western civilization. The boys at FTN jokingly call it the kritarchy , but it is not a bad way to think of it. Instead of the judge being a neutral interpreter of law, as is the western tradition, the judge in this cult is a shaman, charged with reaching justice, as understood by the teachings of his cult.

Kritocracy is a system associated with pre-modern societies, in which there was no central rule making authority. Instead of a legal tradition upon which judges relied, they looked to local custom. This works well enough, it’s better than anarchy, as long as the people within the community adhere to the same customs and beliefs. The idea is to reach a peaceful result, not a legally consistent one. In a modern, rule based society, this form of legal theory is as alien as human sacrifice. It is an assault on civil order.

The thing is, the outcomes are not important here. Even if this lunatic is overruled and the law is enforced, the damage that is being done to civil order is incalculable. Every time one of these cult members gets on the bench and starts making these bizarre rulings, public trust in the legal system is eroded. We are very close to the point where a majority of people no longer think we have a legal system at all. Instead, it is arbitrary rule by robed shamans. Therefore, the law is irrelevant and the system for writing laws is illegitimate.

We now live in an age in which the Federal court says the White House cannot decide who gets a press pass, but it is perfectly OK for the banks to collude to shut you out of the financial system, because they don’t like how you voted. The law says a business can fire an employee, because he does not accept the company values, but the same business must hire a mentally unstable man in a sundress and let him watch the female employees undress. This is a revolt against rationality and reason and it can end only one way.

Getting back to where we started, the remedy for that courthouse overrun by perverts is to clear out the perverts. That’s a simple answer to a small, isolated problem. What American faces is the near total takeover of the institutions by a secular cult that is evolving into a suicidal mystery cult. Removing the believers from positions of authority will not be peaceful. Allowing their madness to run its course will not be peaceful either, as the overthrow of order can only lead to anarchy. Either way, what comes next is chaos.

This process has been going on since at least the “famous” Roger Traynor, who made up his facts and overruled existing law based on those facts.e.g..Traynor and his acolytes came up with notions like “there is no insurance fraud”, and destroyed many of the guards against it.Anyone in business or law, of course, knows that insurance fraud is rampant in every area of life.

I discovered many years ago when pursuing a simple black letter matter in real estate where the law was absolutely precise and clear with no discretion for any contradiction, that I would not necessarily get a judge to enforce the legal rule if he didn’t feel like it. I was astonished and asked for an explanation which was essentially, the law is what the judge says it is. If he doesn’t want to rule in your favor, nothing can compel him.

The “Jackson Moment” might well be here with this “migrant” caravan. Apparently some Hawaiian Judge has ordered that Trump must let them in the country. If he complies, it’s the end. If he tells them to get bent, it’s a different end. I thought the crisis point would come faster than people think, but this is faster than even I thought. We’re in a world of trouble right now.

Unfortunately, with the media’s full support, I think it will be a leftist president that will break the seal and tell a federal judge to get bent. The changing of the rules in the Senate could never have been accomplished by a Republican majority because the wailing from the press would have been 24/7. Long term consequences? No idea.

I agree. If SCOTUS gets a constitutionalist majority, the Left will suddenly discover the principles of checks and balances, judicial restraint, and so forth. They will ignore and defy any ruling not to their liking.

Good comment! I wonder if the new acting attorney general will be made of sterner stuff than Jeff Sessions and instruct national government officials to disregard any court orders not approved by the attorney general. Federal marshalls attempting to enforce the court order would be disarmed and taken into custody. This would provoke a constitutional crisis but the Democratic House is likely to impeach Trump anyway and, as Z Man notes, we’re probably headed for chaos anyway.

That and the fact we now have the max time to the next election — two years to demonstrate that sky-is-falling hysteria is overblown. But Trump truckling in the matter of Jim Acosta makes it clear that he’s no Jackson, as we already knew.

It’s Marbury v Madison Version 10^10.0 – the judge assumed he had the authority to “reinstate” White House press passes and require a code of conduct. Regardless of whether it is a “win,” the judge usurped authority and arrogated to himself a power he does not (or at least did not) have. That is where the damage is done.

That’s nonsense.

Ernst Fraenkel nailed this back in the 1930s — it’s the “prerogative state.” He said that the 3rd Reich had “normative law” and “prerogative law.” Normative law was black-letter law, and you’d get real, impartial justice, even from the Nazi-est judge, if it were a matter of a speeding ticket or something like that.

Leonard: Note the terms “IS PHYSICALLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES OR WHO ARRIVES IN THE UNITED STATES.” The key here is “IN.” If our central/national/federal government has any one purpose, it is to DEFEND the nation against invasion, attack, or intrusion of any kind. If the U.S. military and/or U.S. Border Patrol cannot keep invaders OUT, then they are useless. Once “IN,” anyone can claim asylum then commit criminal acts to avoid deportation. The fundamental question is “WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED IN AT ALL?”

Re: “WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED IN AT ALL?”

Because once they are here – they can apply for asylum!.

You ought to give the link. Here it is.

There is a conflict between 1182(f) and 1158(a)(1). This seems obvious to me, but perhaps it isn’t to you.

Who is supposed to resolve conflicts in the law? Well, Congress can do so if it can arse itself to. (I note that Republicans have control of both houses and the Presidency.) But absent Congress doing something, it falls to the judiciary.

In any case, my original point is that the case is not clearcut. So no, I don’t care to retract my assertion.

The conflict was resolved when the Supreme Court upheld the President’s so-called Muslim ban in Trump v. Hawaii last year. Here is a link to the ruling:

https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/17pdf/17-965_h315.pdf

“Held: The President has lawfully exercised the broad discretion granted to him under §1182(f) to suspend the entry of aliens into the United States. Pp. 9–24.”

I suppose you think it is the duty of our court system to examine each and every instance when the president exercises this power?

Really, give it up. You are wrong. He will be vindicated, and this is nothing but lawlessness on the part of our lawless court system.

It’s not in conflict. It’s straightforward. Here are the asylum rules unless the president declares such immigrants detrimental to the US. That’s a clear cut reading.

An example would be corporate having a policy of all stores will be open 7am-9pm. The manager may change the hours for employee and/or customer safety issues. That’s a simple, logical reading. There is only a conflict to people intent on violating the law and looking for a fig leaf of coverage.

Leonard, “absent Congress doing something” nothing is done. The judiciary does not make law, Congress does. At least that’s the way it’s supposed to be.

As long as you’re giving links, you might have given the one for §1158. Here it is: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1158

And what you have repeatedly missed is §1158(2)(c): “Additional limitations
The Attorney General may by regulation establish additional limitations and conditions, consistent with this section, under which an alien shall be ineligible for asylum under paragraph (1).” In particular a requirement that applications must be made at points of entry is a permissible limitation, and the President can order the AG to institute that “additional limitation” by Executive Order, or otherwise.

Member

Your interpretation would have allowed the German saboteurs apprehended on American soil in World War II to have claimed asylum. Given that they had failed, and the Third Reich was rather illiberal towards its political enemies, their claims might have had a fair chance of being approved by the present judiciary. A president should have the authority to declare certain “aliens” to be “invaders,” who may be forcibly resisted and have no due process claims. Otherwise, the present asylum law is a national suicide pact.

The source of much of this legal mischief lies in the universities which prepare the minds of our legal eagles. Pre-law undergraduate studies channel these people into various multi-kult and oppression studies courses, along with the usual degraded deconstruction courses on history and literature. The entire effort is designed to produce the kinds of minds that are susceptible to the modern neo-Marxist view of culture. With that sort of outlook, is it any wonder that we are witnessing the self-immolation of our nation? It has been baked into the intellectual cake for decades.

Law Schools are accredited by the ABA, rather than by the Department of Education. This is a major problem, as it means that we lack “civilian control”. As something like 70% of lawyers are left-wing, the ABA routinely demands more affirmative action in law schools, to the extent that they won’t revoke accreditation from schools where most students fail the Bar. Note the demographics of those schools.

Important to note that the bar exam has existed far longer than law schools. Some “state bar associations” are mandatory membership, but the ABA is a voluntary organization, but yet it exercises quasi-governmental power. A state bar tried to stop a friend of R. Spencer from becoming a lawyer. A similar situation exits with the AMA, albeit that they restrict the number of US doctors rather than dilute the number. Foreign physicians have a loophole in the J visa. Quelle surprise!

The important thing to note here is: Congress can strip the jurisdiction from the courts on immigration. In fact they actually did this in 1996. This is a “check and balance” that has atrophied.

Another point, the GOP is absolutely feckless in terms of Congressional procedure. The Dems forced votes on DACA thanks to something known as the “discharge petition”. The GOP, if it truly wants to survive, must do the same on a stand-alone E-Verify bill. Even the farm-state representatives should see the reaper in the mirror, rather than the bribery that would otherwise await them.

Obviously these sorts of problems are complex, they can be traced to numerous interlocking sources etc. But one of the big problems is that our insane, (((malevolent))), asleep-at-the-wheel immigration policies have resulted in a critical portion of our population being very new recent arrivals with zero connection to the West, meaning the actual historical and cultural and demographic force which transformed this patch of soil from just a heavily-forested piece of real estate into a bastion and iteration of a great and very particular civilization in record time.

We’re a first-world people living in a third-world country:
– Contracts are no longer valid. Any business can cut you off for any reason.
– Non-protected individuals are guilty until proven innocent of any accusation.
– If you challenge the narrative even slightly, FBI will label you as terrorists.
– Physical security is nonexistent. Police protect the mobs, not their victims.
– And of course, judges neither know nor care about the letter of the law.

This is exactly what living in a third-world country is like. Ask any Latin American.

Anyone else read Tom Kratman’s “Caliphate”? In an amusing backstory section, President Buchanan (yes) has a Thomas Beckett moment after the Supreme Court tries to block him from deporting Muslims (after a nuclear 911). Somebody rids him of pesky Justices and is promptly pardoned. End of problem.

Cults are perfectly reasonable. They’re even more reasonable than mainstream religion, they just have no critical thinking skills. Many of these judges are highly literate and articulate, top of their classes. Perfectly reasonable people. That’s the problem. Reason, alone, is nothing more than a system set up to derive an outcome. When false inputs are put into a system, the system reads a false outcome. It’s the same thing as a global warming chart, false inputs, false outcome. Reason and critical thinking are two different things. Reason is an interpretation of fact. If academia sets down a false fact, reason… Read more »

One of the enduring oddities of this kritarchy is that monstrous SC precedent known as Chevron Deferral, wherein decisions of organs of the Administrative State are ASSUMED to be licit. Never mind that these organs illegitimately co-mingle legislative, executive, and judicial powers and that the process of challenging their decisions is by design so onerous and ruinously expensive that the process becomes the punishment.

The Constitution has long been defunct. The evolution of the economy required a change in legal thinking long ago, and when the left began contriving legal arguments to serve their ideology and interests, to cage ourselves into “originalism” was a recipe for defeat (or treason). My understanding is that the Dissident Right’s notion of 1st amendment rights to free speech are those of the old left, not those of our American ancestors through much of our history. Is this correct? Our conceptions of law, like our morality, like the contrived “human rights” secular religion, are contrivances of our existential enemies,… Read more »

The problem we have is the conservatives: they value order to the point of absurdity. If we actually start ignoring the Sanhedrin, people will lose whatever faith they have in the system. (I would applaud that, but your average Congresscritter? Not so much.) These arrogant judges also gives the cucks something: a chance to duck every “controversial” issue. “Well golly, gee. I was against ‘gay’ marriage, but the court has spoken. We must obey the courts, or the rule of law will be blah blah blah.” A conservative is useless as a revolutionary.

This [kitarchy] works well enough, it’s better than anarchy, as long as the people within the community adhere to the same customs and beliefs. … In a modern, rule based society, this form of legal theory is as alien as human sacrifice. It is an assault on civil order.

If I may, this works even in a modern, rule-based society — but it stops when you introduce large numbers of alien or hostile foreigners and encourage them to refuse to assimilate.

The remedy is for Trump to say the ruling is not legitimate and ignore it. The same with the press ruling. Tell the judges they have no standing on these matters and start doing the job of the executive, which is to administer the laws. Maybe Nancy has the votes to impeach him, but if she does she’ll do it anyway regardless. Do the right thing and stop allowing leftist lunatics paralyze the country.

This play we call the American experiment was intended to be cast w believers who accepted – and respected -:their various roles. Unfortunately, the very liberties and protections envisioned are all too often exploited by non-believers to undermine the experiment. Too many actors – citizens, politicians, judges, even merchants – are playing someone else’s role. The Left is producing Springtime For Hitler hoping it will fail.

This is an unpopula opinion with conservatives but,

This situation is a perfectly predictable outcome of making the judiciary a separate and equal branch of government, while retaining a common law legal paradigm.

Common law is a fine system for a pre-modern society with a foreign conqueror ruling class as England had nine hundred years ago. It’s an ok system (not great but workable) for a modern country with parliamentary supremacy. It’s absolutely idiotic one for a country with a strong and vague written constitution.

TGP has just reported that a Federal Judge has allowed FGM.

Link:
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/11/outrageous-federal-judge-tosses-us-law-criminalizing-barbaric-practice-of-female-genital-mutilation/

Another great example of federal judges dictating social policy and abolishing children’s rights.

I’d venture that to long from now some Federal judge will allow child marriage and sex. And when that happens the country is dead and anyone who enforces such laws deserves termination.

Lance_E

Tell me again why we’re supposed to care so much about “FGM” when male circumcision is so common? They really are remarkably similar practices, for those who bother to do the research.

FGM is a neocon/”liberalist” red herring. Subjecting girls to daycare, single moms, 12 years of public school and 4 or more years of feminist indoctrination camp is far more barbaric. Banning female circumcision is like banning burkas, it’s a clumsy gesture that does nothing to address the real issues.

Rod1963

You miss the f**king point. The judge just made Islam exempt from out from our laws(carving a space out for Sharia) and setting a precedent where child marriage and sex(pederasty) is next, just like in England.And it also means one day you might be under the Muzzie boot getting curb stomped like the Brtis are because some judge allows it.

Yawn. Don’t let the muzzies in and this won’t be an issue. Keep letting them in and it won’t make one bit of difference what the official laws are. FGM is a stupid hill to die on. All genital mutilation, male or female, is barbaric. Reeeeing about FGM is a lame attempt to get the attention of feminists who will never take your side. It reeks of center-left Sargonism, sperging over one aspect of a culture that shouldn’t be here in the first place. Get it together. This isn’t the most important issue facing America.

Right. Yeah. Sure.

You posted nothing of relevance to his article. Nothing but giant rant.

The point is legal precedent to abuse and mutilate human beings. By the logic the judge used it would be okay for me to take a steak knife and cut your balls off because it’s part of my religion.

You have no f**king idea the precedent this sets or what it will allow some Lefty ruler to do us.

The failure of Left-wing/liberal judges to follow the law or the Constitution has been a problem ever since the Warren Court. The fault lies in the cowardice and self-interest of Congress. Read the Constitution, the lower courts (district and appellate) are created by Congress and what cases they hear are also defined by Congress. Tomorrow Congress could say “federal courts have no jurisdiction over immigration law” and that would be that. And of course, Federal judges have no real power. If Trump was to say, “Let Mr. Roberts enforce it” – Roberts could do nothing, if Congress agreed. What’s really… Read more »

“Needless to say, such a thing would be the scandal of the century.”

I doubt it.

Half the country would either not hear about it or be told it’s a crazy conspiracy theory. Among the remaining half, a sizeable portion would call it “refreshingly disruptive”, “an overdue queering of the justice system”, and “a welcomed development in the struggle to decolonize the judiciary”.

Remember: Virtue lies in neutralizing that part of your brain that experiences disgust, for wholesomeness is oppressive.
