What is happening here is blatantly obvious. The democrats, allied with a hyper-partisan judiciary, are conspiring to completely neuter President Trump by interfering with every lawful order he issues. What they are attempting to do, in essence, is usurp his authority to run the country by leftist judicial fiat. Trump must ignore this illegal restraining order to take back the powers granted to him by the Constitution to defend this country from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
What we are seeing here is a coup: a coup by the New Class; by the Democratic Party; by far leftists embedded in the bureaucracy and the federal judiciary. Our duly elected president has issued an order that is plainly within his constitutional powers, and leftists have conspired to abuse legal processes to block it. They are doing so in order to serve the interests of the Democratic Party and the far-left movement. This is the most fundamental challenge to democracy in our lifetimes.
The battle lines are clearly drawn. What Watson has done has nothing to do with the law. It is a partisan coup, and must be resisted.
More on the Left’s Judicial Coup
Two federal judges, one in Hawaii and one in Maryland, have enjoined execution of President Trump’s travel order. These court orders are obviously illegal and unconstitutional. Under the Constitution and federal law, the president has the power to suspend immigration from any and all countries if he deems it in the best interest of the United States.
The net result is that Trump has been stripped of his constitutional and statutory powers to protect the nation through control of who is permitted to enter the country.
As discussed in prior posts, the power to control who enters the country is uniquely a presidential power. Not anymore, unless the Supreme Court acts to restore that power.
I disagree to this extent: the moment the next Democratic president is inaugurated, the executive’s constitutional powers will magically be restored and, indeed, extended.
Arguably President Trump has a duty to disregard the Hawaii and Maryland courts’ illegal injunctions, and direct the executive branch to carry out his order. His obligation under the Constitution is to exercise his powers in defense of the American people.
THIS WILL UNDOUBTEDLY END UP AT THE SUPREME COURT, EVEN BEFORE THE HEARINGS ON NEIL GORSUCH. WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT THE COURT MAY EITHER DECLINE TO HEAR IT OR SPLIT 4-4, LEAVING THE TRO IN PLACE. IT’S A SAFE BET THAT, EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A SLAM DUNK, THERE IS NO WAY BREYER, BROOMHILDA THE WITCH, OR HER TWO UGLY SISTERS WILL GIVE A FAIR DECISION WHEN IT COMES TO DONALD TRUMP.
THE SUPREMES VOTED 9-0 IN 2012 TO HOLD OBAMA’S NON-RECESS RECESS APPOINTMENTS TO THE LABOR BOARD WERE UNCONSTITUTIONAL. WHAT DID HE DO? RAISE HIS MIDDLE FINGER, SMILE, AND SAY ‘FUCK YOU,’ AND HIS HAND-PICKED UNION THUGS WERE STILL SERVING WHEN HE LEFT OFFICE. TRUMP MUST DO ESSENTIALLY THE SAME THING, BUT WITHOUT THE FINGER. OUR SECURITY DEPENDS ON IT.
Trump’s Refugee Order Looms Large Over Gorsuch Hearing
The ongoing legal battle over President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugee and migrants may dominate next week’s hearings on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
“You can find example after example of Judge Gorsuch siding against workers even in the most dire circumstances,” she said.
Trump’s revised executive order on refugee and migrants, and two new court orders temporarily enjoining its enforcement, could hijack the hearing and dominate the proceedings.
Judge Considers Ordering President Donald Trump to Double 50,000 Refugee Inflow to the United States
A federal District Court judge in Maryland is considering whether he should order President Donald Trump to double the annual inflow of refugees up to 100,000 per year.
Any demand by the judge that the federal government airbus an extra 50,000 migrants — including many adherents of Islam’s sharia legal system — into American neighborhoods would be an unusual intervention into government roles normally left to the elected President and Congress.
5 Problems With The Hawaii Judge Halting Trump’s Travel Ban
The executive order, which was a loosened version of a previous version struck down by another court, suspends entry to the United States for 90 days from nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. It also suspends the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days.
“This is an unprecedented judicial overreach,” Trump said of Judge Derrick Watson’s order, during a rally in Nashville.
Whether you agree or disagree with the executive order — and there are plenty of people on both sides of that debate, for many different reasons — the judge’s ruling has some serious problems. Here are a few of them.

Plaintiff behind Trump travel ban runs Muslim Brotherhood mosque
Imam born and raised in Egypt, migrated to U.S.
Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering “irreparable harm” from the president’s executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries.
One of those six countries is Syria. Elshikh’s mother in law is Syrian and would not be able to visit her family in Hawaii for 90 days if Trump’s ban were allowed to go into effect.
Hawaii’s Obama-appointed federal judge, Derrick Watson, made sure the ban did not go into effect, striking it down Wednesday while buying Hawaii’s claim that it amounts to a “Muslim ban.” The state’s attorney general, along with co-plaintiff Elshikh, claims the ban would irreparably harm the state’s tourism industry and its Muslim families.
SPLIT IT: Congress Considers Splitting The 9th Circuit
Judges Sidney Thomas, Carlos Bea, and Alex Kozinski give testimony before a House panel on splitting the 9th Circuit.
Democrats on the subcommittee argued that the administrative and logistical concerns Republican lawmakers raised were little more than a thin veneer masking their ideological hostility to the court.
“Like clockwork we see proposals to split the 9th Circuit whenever it hands down decisions with which conservatives disagree,” said Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler.
“The 9th Circuit has long been in the sights of Republican politicians,” he added.
