Trump Blasts "So-Called Judge" Over "Ridiculous" Travel Ban Ruling

Tyler Durden's picture

Following the latest dramatic twist in the ordeal surrounding Trump's Immigration Executive Order, when on Friday night Seattle Federal Judge Robart (appointed by George W. Bush in 2003) blocked Trump's travel ban from seven Muslim countries, the White House promptly responded by stating that it intends to file an emergency stay of this "outrageous order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate."

Earlier, on Friday night, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson disagreed when he greeted Robart's ruling saying “It is not the loudest voice that prevails on the Constitution,” and added "we are a nation of laws, not even the president can violate the Constitution. It's our president's duty to honor this ruling and I'll make sure he does."

And so, with Trump's Executive Order now a constitutional matter and almost certainly headed to the Supreme Court, where the judicial opinion of Trump's recent appointment Neil Gorsuch will soon be tested, on Saturday morning Trump wasted no time to attack "the opinion of so-called Judge" Robart, which Trump said "essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country" and warned the ruling "is ridiculous and will be overturned!"

He prefaced this warning for a showdown by saying that "when a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot , come in & out, especially for reasons of safety &.security - big trouble!" and defending his decision by invoking other Middle-eastern nations who allegedly "agree with the ban" (using a word which Sean Spicer would have preferred he did not as he will be brutalized by the press corps for it on Monday).

As expected, Trump himself was immediately attacked on social media for his "so-called" hint he disagrees with the separation of powers as per article III, section 1 of the Constitution which, as a reminder, reads: "Judicial power of the US shall be vested in the Courts." Others have asked, rhetorically, what would happen if the situation was reversed:


Trump has lashed out at judges he disagreed with in the past as well: during last year’s presidential campaign, Trump slammed the “Mexican heritage” of Indiana-born Judge Gonzalo Curiel as a reason he should recuse himself from lawsuits regarding Trump University, a legal matter which he eventually ended up settling.

So get ready for the dramatic showdown, as the fate of Trump's executive order is soon set to play out inside the Supreme Court of the United States.

You go to like a leader that minces few words.

Of course, some will criticize this. The main reason is; THEY'VE NEVER HAD A STRONG LEADER.

People are used to smiles and lies. 

Trump is used to TELLING IT LIKE IT IS.

stitch-rock's picture

It seems the "republicans" are as blind
(willfully ignorant?) as the "democrats".

Trump is purchased...just maybe not as heavily as the others.
Critical, self-assessing thinking is going away so fast it makes things seem like a cartoon of idiocy...

This post certainly seems to prove that point at least in this instance.

I am convinced that people are missing the REAL picture, even those who think they know whats going on, so called war between the Left and Right and the end result.. 

The real war is a spiritual one! Satan the Devil is the ruler of this world who's time has run out. IU john 5:19 We know that we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.+ 

Since 1914 this occured. REV 12: 9 So down the great dragon+ was hurled, the original serpent,+ the one called Devil+ and Satan,+ who is misleading the entire inhabited earth;+ he was hurled down to the earth,+ and his angels were hurled down with him. 10 I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

“Now have come to pass the salvation+ and the power and the Kingdom of our God+ and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God!

NOTE when this occured WWI happened , Nations against nations, food shortages, Great earth quakes, Pestilance, 

MATT 24:7 “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom,+ and there will be food shortages+ and earthquakes in one place after another.+ 8 All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress.9 “Then people will hand you over to tribulation+ and will kill you,+ and you will be hated by all the nations on account of my name.+ 10 Then, too, many will be stumbled and will betray one another and will hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will arise and mislead many;+ 12 and because of the increasing of lawlessness, the love of the greater number will grow cold. 13 But the one who has endured* to the end will be saved.+ 14 And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations,+ and then the end will come.

AND NOTE,, During this time period a great WARNING work would be carried on...NOTE verse 14.. JW.s are the only ones giving a world wide witness of the Good News of God's Kingdom by Christ Jesus.. Satan does not want you to listen to this information.. He is going to be put to death for his EVILNESS and wants to take as many humans as he can with him..

Its all a distraction to MISLEAD mankind away from the truth.. 


Jehovah God cannot lie! His word is the truth and the book of Revelation if happening RIGHT NOW!


REV 20: 2 He seized the dragon,+ the original serpent,+ who is the Devil+ and Satan,+and bound him for 1,000 years. 3 And he hurled him into the abyss+ and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not mislead the nations anymore until the 1,000 years were ended. After this he must be released for a little while.+4 And I saw thrones, and those who sat on them were given authority to judge. Yes, I saw the souls* of those executed* for the witness they gave about Jesus and for speaking about God, and those who had not worshipped the wild beast or its image and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand.+ And they came to life and ruled as kings with the Christ+ for 1,000 years. 5 (The rest of the dead+ did not come to life until the 1,000 years were ended.) This is the first resurrection.+ 6 Happy and holy is anyone having part in the first resurrection;+ over these the second death+ has no authority,+ but they will be priests+ of God and of the Christ, and they will rule as kings with him for the 1,000 years.+

You're talking about dragons and telling people they are missing the real picture. You forgot the part where the dragons sit on a horde of gold though....

Get this.. I have no problem with the majority not liking this message.. However I posted this here earlier today, and ZH deleted it... What does that say?

With all the swearing an offensive and abusive speach that goes on here, they delete this..  talk about hypocrisy !!

bobsmith5's picture

You were deleted probably because your message had nothing whatsoever with  the article in any way and stands as a very obnoxious attempt to give us all bible lessons.  This in itself amounts to offensive and abusive speech.  Most people here are not offended by a bible verse that helps to elucidate your point of view or support your view morally.  But, to babble on in huge biblical paragraphs accomplishes nothing.

Don't worry. Even the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals may blow this ruling out of the water as they have in the past:

Another George W Bush Appointee Favors Terrorists over Taxpayers

Key ruling which destroys this Bushbot judge:

Third, as the Ninth Circuit, that governs the Seattle court, repeatedly ruled: a federal court should not issue rulings beyond its jurisdiction when other courts have also issued rulings on the matter. AMC Entm’t 549 F.3d at 770. The “principles of comity” compel that a court should not grant national relief when doing so would “create tensions” with courts in other circuits and “would encourage forum shopping.” The Ninth Circuit further reinforced that: “A federal court…may not attempt to determine the rights of parties not before the court”. What kind of case was that the Ninth Circuit said not to extend your ruling beyond the plaintiffs in front of you? An immigration case. Zepeda v. INS, 753 F.2d 719, 727 (9th Cir. 1983); Nat’l Cir. for Immigration Rights v. INS, 743 F.2d 1365 (9th Cir. 1984).

I stand by Trump on the matter. "So Called" Judge is the best description.  

The CONSTITUTION is for US citizens ONLY. Not for shitskins from ME holes that just look for handouts while bringing their subculture. A tru patriot would have supported Trump, not go against him.

True patriots are like THIS:

If you can't see that a full blown philosophical war of ideals is kicking off between the people (trump) and the globalist empire (Jews) by now, you're not going to understand anything else that happens after this.

Meet your masters, this is the enemy

I read the meet your masters website and posted this.


The most critical fact relevant to this article has unfortunately been left out.  What is a Jew?  Are you talking about a race, a nation, or a religion?  Most of the names used to arrive at the idea that Jews control this or that are Eastern European Khazar names. Most of them are probably  not of the Jewish religion or race.  Most of them are probably not from Israel.  I would bet that many of them who are not religiously Jewish are Satanist. There are as diverse political views amongst the Jews as there are in any religious or ethnic group.

While there are dissenting minorities,  they are small.

Most are defiantly on one side of the issue.

The bitter masses are coalescing around the mob consciousness.
The story of 'good' and 'evil' and the fight of two extremes
is much more savory then the reality of the system itself.
If vote of actual trump confidence in all the virtues people seem to ascribe to him for no real empirical reason,
might have looked like a treas sec like William K. Black instead of the GS banker who helped engineer and profit from the fraud collapse of 2008.

You are all putting forth the picture of sad, angry, small people: Happy just to be on the winning team.

I hated SJW the most.
This crowd is starting to pop up on that gay-dar.

malek's picture

William K. Black?
I once also had high respect for that man, but over time I realized he "won a battle, but lost the war" in the S&L fraud aftermath - but he still doesn't get it!
Instead he babbles on, on sites like NC, in a way I can only summarize as "more do-good'ing will finally save us!"
Which in the end makes him a useful idiot for the elites, at best.

And your posts here are worse.
Claiming the moral highground "I know better than all of you" without even a sliver or arguments for your view, and now quickly switch to ad hominems - yeah, that sure's gonna work here on ZH.

Urban Redneck's picture

While he IS wrong in this case, your attempt to cite the wisdom of majority who hang here (and are low IQ lunatics) as an authority is every bit as wrong as he is.

And somehow you reside outside of that element?

Urban Redneck's picture

It takes a real genius to phrase that in a way so that I can correctly answer "YES" to that.  My opinion often resides outside of, or in conflict with, that of the majority here.

"Trump is a billionaire - who could purchase him?" those that own the federal reserve. Has he given any indication that he'd stand up to the fed? Nope, not a peep. He's bought and paid for by the fed and the US military, just like every other president.

At last, a president who echoes the sentiment of the people.  "So-called judge," I love it.  Trump voices what so many of us have been thinking and feeling for years, and his voice goes a long way.  We all know those judges are deeply embedded in and support a corrupted system, pandering to the globalists' agenda all the way.   That's how they got their positions.  Fire them, President Trump.  They do not represent what the people in America want.

Victor999's picture

Unfortunately he can't fire them - he can only encourage them to resign.

effendi's picture

Can he sideline them? Perhaps ensure that the only cases that they handle are DUIs and similar mundane cases. OR... Do what the Japanese corporations did to many excess salarymen back in the 1990s, they couldn't fire them but they could get them to resign by giving them no work to do except sit in an empty room (with an uncomfortable chair) located in the basement looking at blank walls for 8 hours/day.

I rather suspect that this and many other Judges and politicians can/will be encouraged to resign, when the NSA and its Utah data center dig deeper into their personal and financial sins and indiscretions.

Mr. President, use the NSA to go after them !  Quietly.  Use the NSA, so that the FBI and IRS can nail them. The last time I checked, the NSA worked for the DOD, and you are the Commander In Chief of the DOD.

Lord High Maximus Orange Julius ( May His Name Be Praised Forever ) is leaning a little something about Constitutional governance.

It's hard being a Autocrat in a Constitutional government.

It's also hard draining the Swamp when there is so much Goldman / Fed Bux paying for said Swamp. 

Harder still when Lord High Maximus Orange Julius ( May His Name Be Praised Forever ) loaded his cabinet up with ex Goldmanite / DOD / Bush appointees.


And you little Trump snowflakes crying in your milk over the fact that your tin pot dicatator can't do anything he promised.  You wanted a benevolent dicatator....just like the Left did with the Magic Negro.....and you're finding out a corrupted Constitutional government is a hard thing to manage.

WAHHHHH ......WAHHHHH........BOO HOOOoooooo  !!!

I'll take a stab at it.  

Where you're wrong is inferring that there is anything to learn about constitutional governance in Washington, or that we are any longer, in any way, governed under the letter or spirit of the constitution.  

Other than that, I thought you were a troll until you dissed the Magic DownLow Negro, and I agree with you that there is not a dime's worth of difference between them in that respect.
