Justice does NOT wear a grass skirt!


Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions (pardon us while we vomit again) is just plain flobbergummled to learn that a beautifully crafted executive order from the president of these United States can be overturned by some upstart judge. Especially some whippersnapper "federal judge" from an island out in the Pacific that hasn't even been a state -- if it even is a state; has anyone seen its long-form Statehood Certificate? -- as long as the president has been alive.

Sessions expressed his wonderment that a mere island stripling could overturn travel ban 2.0 during an interview about fixing the broken federal courts with rightwing radio gabber Mark Levin, who brought the world the "Trump Tower Wire Tapps" story, so you know the Attorney General of the United States has the highest possible standards for truthiness.

After bitching about the "very, very liberal Ninth Circuit," which doesn't even know how to law good, Sessions told Levin that the watery upstart in "Hawaii" will surely be vanquished:

We are confident that the President will prevail on appeal and particularly in the Supreme Court, if not the Ninth Circuit. So this is a huge matter. I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power.

We sort of know the feeling. We were amazed that a doddleheaded old moron who was too racist for Republicans to confirm to a federal judgeship in 1986 could ever become the nation's top law enforcer. Strange days, indeed.

Both senators from Hawaii Tweeted their displeasure at A.G. Fudd's comments:

Not that they matter, since not only are these people from way out in the Pacific Ocean, they're also Democrats, which means they're barely even citizens of the United States. And it's not like Trump has to worry about losing support in Hawaii. Once he can appoint enough federal judges, that little problem might be resolved, too.

Now get to your open threading, you Poi Holloi.

No pressure in November, but looks like the Supreme Court is going to do FUCK ALL about gerrymandering this term. In a unanimous decision authored by Chief Justice Roberts, the Court remanded the landmark Gill v. Whitford redistricting case on standing -- in other words, they won't be ruling on it because the plaintiffs challenging the gerrymander hadn't adequately proved that they personally had the right to challenge Wisconsin's preposterous districts.

We have been hearing ever since late last week that Michael Cohen is probably about to be arrested and probably going to be indicted on one million charges and probably maybe might be about to try to flip and make a deal so that he doesn't end up in prison for the rest of his natural life. In fact, we have been hanging our hopes on it, because everything else sucks. Sure, we are still filled with joy over how Paul Manafort is on day four of JAIL, MOTHERFUCKER, JAIL, but then we remembered what is happening on the border and what we are saying right now is we need something happy.
