The New York Times headline spells it out in plain English "Trump Attacks Judge."
In an early-morning Twitter post from his waterfront Florida resort, where he is spending the first getaway weekend of his presidency, Mr. Trump wrote, “The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!”
On Friday night, the White House said it would direct the Justice Department to file for an emergency stay of the ruling, by Judge James Robart of Federal District Court in Seattle, that would allow continued enforcement of the president’s order.
Judge Robart, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, declared in his order that “there’s no support” for the administration’s argument that “we have to protect the U.S. from individuals” from the affected countries, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan and Libya.
"Overturned" by whom? Not the Courts. Every court so far has ruled against Trump and the 8 member SCOTUS will be no different. So, how does Trump, leader of the executive branch plan to "overturn" a ruling by the judicial branch which has been empowered to oversee the Department of Justice and the nation's police?
History spells it out. Hitler, outraged that the German Judicial system failed to serve as a kangaroo court for the defendants in the Reichstags Fire, created a special "People's Court."
Hitler determined to increase the political reliability of the courts. In 1933 he established special courts throughout Germany to try politically sensitive cases. Dissatisfied with the 'not guilty' verdicts rendered by the Supreme Court (Reichsgericht) in the Reichstag Fire Trial, Hitler ordered the creation of the People's Court (Volksgerichtshof) in Berlin in 1934 to try treason and other important "political cases." Under Roland Freisler, the People's Court became part of the Nazi system of terror, condemning tens of thousands of people as "Volk Vermin" and thousands more to death for "Volk Treason." The trial and sentencing of those accused of complicity in the July Plot, the attempt to kill Hitler in July 1944, was especially unjust.
After the war, prominent Nazi jurists like Curt Rothenberger, Franz Schlegelberger, and Josef Altstoetter were tried in the Jurists' Trial of the Subsequent Nuremberg Proceedings on charges of "judicial murder" and other atrocities.
Political reliability. That's what Trump wants. He has the Legislative Branch in his pocket and now he is going after the Judiciary. What will he do? Have Congress reduce the judges' salaries to $1? No, that won't work. There is only one way he can achieve his goal--- declare war so that he can set up special military courts and secret prisons to dispense politically reliable justice.
I humbly suggest that we skip over the part where millions of people die in a senseless war, our national debt goes up by ten trillion and a bunch of military tribunals replace our nation's judiciary and condemn thousands of Americans to suffering and death before being disbanded after a crushing military defeat or revolution. Maybe we should act pro-actively, instead, to preserve our very sound, very sensible, very judicious judicial system and our democratic form of government.
War is coming. Be alert. Watch for the early warning signs---like Trump declaring himself to be "our country" and above the law. We all saw in 2002-3 how easy it is to sucker Americans into war. Do not be fooled again. When they show us "yellow cake uranium" tell them where they can put their "yellow cake uranium."
