Rogue POTUS Defies Courts, Has Blood on his Hands

SIX DEAD, EIGHT WOUNDED IN QUEBEC CITY:  Yesterday, a gunman opened fire on an Islamic Cultural Center in Quebec City, killing six worshippers and wounding eight. The shooting occurred days after an unconstitutional order signed by the 'unpresidented' banned travelers from specifically named Muslim countries.

MORE BAD NEWS: The president defies court orders. On Saturday, federal judges in Massachusetts, New York, and the state of Washington issued temporary restraining orders to stop the deportations. In Virginia, another court ordered access to legal counsel for detainees. In response, a White House official replied: “All stopped visas will remain stopped. All halted admissions will remain halted. All restricted travel will remain prohibited.” Meanwhile, administration officials continue to stonewall and CBP agents continue to defy the courts, constitutional and contract law, plus all international conventions and treaties.

Abner Greene, a law professor at Fordham University, said: “Obedience to specific court orders is what keeps us from being a banana republic or fascist dictatorship.” According to Michael Dorf of Cornell University: “Outright defiance can only be deemed disrespect for the rule of law.”

'A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS,' writes Congressman Don Beyer on his Twitter account. No doubt, appeals to bigotry and reckless rhetoric meet the definition of incitement as assuredly as if the president had pulled the trigger himself.

Even more disturbing, the travel ban is predicted on bogus evidence. In 40 years, no traveler from the list of banned nations committed even one act of terrorism. Not one! Alternate facts are merely falsehoods and fascist rhetoric, as this chart explains:


  1. It is time to start throwing people in jail for defying a court order.

  2. We were a nation of laws. Until trump. I don't believe all who voted for him actually approve of fascism, but, I do believe they ignored all the signs because they wanted a change they were comfortable with. They are finding out how brutally naive and ill informed They were. For the hard core trumpanzees nothing will alter their adoration for him.

  3. So sad, so true. Just like the rise of Fascism in the 1930s, it's done in little steps, each of which doesn't seem much, seems logical and necessary and so you don't look at where you're going until you're there and it's too late.

  4. Shocked, appalled and ... utterly speechless. Today, I read in the news that Speaker Lyin' Ryan approves of the Muslim travel ban. So the GOP holds a monolithic grip on all branches of government without checks and balances against this abuse of power. It's official: We are now living in a fascist country.

  5. Like I said in my post yesterday, we're F**KED big time. The trumpanzees are getting their rocks off over it all. I look at it this way though, I'll have tne last laugh when trump F**KS his trumpanzees over. And he most assuredly will.
