Private_Citizen: Trump is sending a not so subtle warning that he will ignore anyone - even the Supreme Court - if he wants to.

I'm beginning to think the only way he leaves office is by being dragged out.


I both do and do not envy the folks who will do the dragging.


I don't envy them, because they'll be carrying 400 pounds of ballast at least half a mile.

And I do envy them, because f*ck Nazis.

Biden should deputize Hillary as Sergeant At Arms the second he is sworn in,  and have her and a team of secret service agents drag him off the Capitol steps to an awaiting van that takes him back to NY to face State money laundering and tax evasion charges.  She'd get to send him off with a "Lock him up", as well.

Dont worry he'll have blackwater mercenaries protecting his ass when the secret services walk out.

The army will need to march on the white house and his praetorian guard slaughtered for him to leave.


Careful, his mercenaries are a formidable lot.

"No, see, John Yoo threw a hissy fit in the National Review and wrote an article that claimed 'if Obama's executive orders are legal then Trump gets to rule by executive fiat, let's see how the Supreme Court likes that!' and we treated that as an actual cogent legal argument and decided that the Supreme Court ACTUALLY ruled in our favor if you think about it."

Just to clarify I'm not wishing harm to come to him, only that if he won't leave he's breaking the law and no longer presidentially "immune".

Bad joke. I apologize. No Secret Service visit required.

He's already talking openly about elections being meaningless.

He needs to be shut down, hard.  I'm honestly not sure the best way to do this, but I want this country to survive as a democracy, and Trump is doing everything he can to undermine that.

You can't just declare elections invalid whenever the outcome isn't what you want.  That's like saving and reloading a video game until you beat the boss.

At the current rate of active treason and destruction, he's going to 'win'. And not enough Americans have any guts to fight a civil war to remove him, plus he'll be able to get all the help he needs from Russia.

Immigration rights advocates say the administration is indeed defying the high court's decision by refusing to process new applications for DACA as it was before the phase-out was announced in September 2017.
Justice Department lawyers insist that policy is consistent with the Supreme Court's ruling, which did not bar future changes to DACA, but said the wind-down initiated in 2017 did not properly account for the law or the impact of the decision.


Gee whiz.  Who to believe???  head-scratcher, I tell you what.

kbronsito: Nabb1: kbronsito: The judge should have demanded that the guy elaborate on his assertion that the judicial doesn't have that authority but with a warning to watch himself during his explanation, because at the first sign of disrespect, he'll get tossed into a cell for contempt. Trump and the other fascist aholes wish they had that power. But no one in America is legally required to respect cops, presidents, or anyone else. Other countries do have laws that can get you arrested for disrespecting authority figures. In America, only judges have that power. But only while you are in the court room. If your neighbor judge is being a dick, you can tell him to go fark himself. Although I wouldn't do that. Having a judge in good terms with you can come in handy.

The judge put the question to a DOJ attorney in court, in reference to an out-of-court statement made by someone else (an agency official) who was reacting to the decision back in June.  The headline is rather, shall we say, unclear about that

I thought the lawyer was DHS too. Probably not fair to put the DOJ attorney on the spot for the DHS aholes. Then again. The head of the DOJ is also a huge ahole shiatting on the rule of law. But still not entirely fair to make the DOJ attorney sweat to defend stupid shiat said by another agency.


I've had some tough questions and awkward moment with judge's asking me about my clients' shenanigans a few times over the years.  Sometimes they deserved it, and the judge did me a favor by giving me ammo to talk a client into behaving.  Sometimes it was uncalled for, though, and that's always a rough day in court.  It depends on the circumstance.
