    An Obama-appointed federal judge strikes down several key provisions in President Trump's executive orders that he signed earlier this year that would have made it easier to fire federal workers.

    In a court ruling, U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson wrote that unions were right in arguing that the provisions included in the orders infringed upon areas that are negotiated between federal employee unions and the government.

    Jackson, an appointee of former President Obama, wrote that the orders “impair the ability of agency officials to keep an open mind, and to participate fully in give-and-take discussions, during collective bargaining negotiations.”

    In other words, an Obozo flunky disregards the executive authority of the president to make his own rules. What’s new? That’s exactly why we need to president to nominate more level-headed judges to the federal bench so they can overrule political activism of guys like this.

    Judge blocks Trump executive orders on federal union operations @ Judge blocks Trump executive orders on federal union operations

    Where have we read this before? The president signs an executive order designed to clean up the mess in the federal government and those against it find some federal judge to block it.

    Before getting to the details of this highly questionable ruling, we should first note that the judge in the case is Ketanji Brown Jackson. She’s an Obama appointee who has been on the fast track in progressive politics, having been interviewed for further advancement to the Supreme Court by Obama after only spending a handful of years at the District Court. Earlier, Obama had appointed her to the U.S. Sentencing Commission. Prior to that, she was a clerk for Stephen Breyer.

    Surprised? When and how can we put an end to “judge shopping?”

    So you really think the President should have the right to override union/employer contracts? Sounds a little scary to me.

    Don't get me wrong. I have worked in government and I know it's true that firing the incompetent is a long slow process. As a friend of mine once put it, "to get fired around here you would have to f**k a goat in the hallway." Which is probably a good start, but it would only get you counselled, the first time.

    They had a boat load of worthless losers working at the prison and they were extremely hard to get rid of. In fact they were pretty safe no matter how useless they were unless they:

    1: Dissed the bitch ass warden

    2: got caught blowing a convict.
