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."Trump doesn't disagree with the Constitution. ZH disagrees with the Constitution. It says "The judicial Power of the United States shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish." Separation of powers simply means that the types of power are separated. It DOES NOT MEAN, nor does it state, that the judicial branch can OVERRULE the executive branch. The only SPECIFICATION of hierarchy in the original document runs the other way, with Congress having power to make and remove courts and judges. By implication the judiciary is in a lower position. Its job is to ENFORCE laws made by legislative and executive branches. District "courts" were not established by the Constitution. They were established by Congress, first in 1789, then revised in 1911. The 1911 Judicial Act is very specific about jurisdiction and authority. It DOES give District "courts" jurisdiction over cases involving immigration, but it does NOT say that any "court" can overrule a law made by Congress or an order given by the Executive. The illegitimate power to overrule was illegally stolen by the Supreme Criminals in 1803 and never taken back by Congress, which was meant to be the changer and repealer of laws.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
