Good. Purge all the Liberal cucks from their positions. They are working against the interests of America.



This, ladies and gentlemen, is an example of why half of America and most of the rest of the world, are terrified of Trump and his cronies.

This is where fascism comes from folks, plain and simple. These people will see us all dead, because they actively want fascism. They will applaud if Trump dismantles American democracy, so long as they get to see the people they hate killed first.


Trump is not dismantling democracy. He is following the Constitution and existing laws to protect the United States as was intended by our Founding document.

It has been decades since this country was governed as intended. I am thrilled that we finally have a President with the testicles to challenge malcontents, foreign and domestic, who would happily see our country destroyed by its enemies.

I'm watching SEAN SPICER brief reporters on this firing now. (Fox news) He's being WAAAY too nice and taking 5 minutes to give a thoughtful answer. Trump needs a new Media guy. One more like himself, who would say, ""She didn't follow the President's order and was fired!", next question.""

This is to be expected. She was a placeholder until Sessions is confirmed, regardless. And the president absolutely has the authority to do it. So no issue there imho.

What the executive doesn't have the authority to do, is ignore judicial orders. The new AG or acting AG can direct Justice to appeal them, as I expect he or she will. However, they cannot simply ignore them. If they do that, we have a constitutional crisis.

However, it now appears DHS and CBP may be complying, it's just that the whip saw effect of these orders from both branches is causing confusion.

www.theguardian.com...

Not the greatest source, but it's the only one I could find saying that, so, there we are. Looks like they are complying or trying to at the moment.

Peace.

she's the United States' attorney general, and heads an army of attorneys and other legal brains who's sole purpose is to represent the United States in legal matters and provide legal counseling.
maybe I am wrong but I am kind of seeing this similar to a defense attorney who just ups and decides he doesn't want to defend him client because he believes he is guilty. he may well be within his rights to pull out of representing the guy, but then the guy has every right to go out and find another one that is willing to defend him.
which is kind of what trump did...

As a reminder, the attorney general's duty is to uphold the constitution, even if that choice conflicts with the president. We should be so fortunate that people are not afraid to keep authority in check, Democrat or Republican. It means people are willing to do what's right.

There is a reason we have people that have checks against the president. He is not a king.

Also, the last time this happened was from Nixon. And you know the rest.

She herself admitted that there was no solid legal reason why the order was illegal only that she didn't like the policy which is not a good enough reason for her to defy the president.

As AG, it isn't her job top decide what laws, directives and such she will or will not enforce. It is only her job if there is solid legal reasoning to believe something is illegal which she admitted she could not find.

So she had no leg to stand on. Adios! She martyred herself for politics, plain and simple.

Her primary function is to represent the US government in legal arenas. Another requirement is to comply with law AND executive orders. Also what the media is failing to disclose is the AAG's own staff review3ed and signed off on the EO as being legal and constitutional.

Ive posted it before but here it is again -

Organization, Mission & Functions Manual: Attorney General, Deputy and Associate


OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

The position of Attorney General was created by the Judiciary Act of 1789. In June 1870 Congress enacted a law entitled “An Act to Establish the Department of Justice.” This Act established the Attorney General as head of the Department of Justice and gave the Attorney General direction and control of U.S. Attorneys and all other counsel employed on behalf of the United States. The Act also vested in the Attorney General supervisory power over the accounts of U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals.

The mission of the Office of the Attorney General is to supervise and direct the administration and operation of the Department of Justice, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Bureau of Prisons, Office of Justice Programs, and the U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals Service, which are all within the Department of Justice.

The principal duties of the Attorney General are to:

Represent the United States in legal matters.

Supervise and direct the administration and operation of the offices, boards, divisions, and bureaus that comprise the Department.

Furnish advice and opinions, formal and informal, on legal matters to the President and the Cabinet and to the heads of the executive departments and agencies of the government, as provided by law.

Make recommendations to the President concerning appointments to federal judicial positions and to positions within the Department, including U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals.

Represent or supervise the representation of the United States Government in the Supreme Court of the United States and all other courts, foreign and domestic, in which the United States is a party or has an interest as may be deemed appropriate.

Perform or supervise the performance of other duties required by statute or Executive Order.

She is a temp until somebody with more brains than her will take her position approved by congress.

With that say, Her brains most no be working that well when she is ignoring the law, herself.

Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

So long America! The idea was nice but the final nails are being nailed into your coffin.


Let me know when you wanna pack your bags and I'll buy your one-way ticket


Or in the case that youre not an American, just wait a few years and see how policies like these actually make the USA a place you want to immigrate to.

Trump fires Atorney General for upholding the same interpretation of the law that the judges have;

Judge Orders U.S. to Let In Immigrant Visa Holders




FEB 01, 2017

LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has dealt another blow to President Trump’s executive order barring some foreigners from coming into the United States, in a ruling that added to the confusion over the legality of the immigration measure.

Using more sweeping language than previous court rulings, Judge André Birotte Jr. of United States District Court here issued a temporary restraining order on Tuesday evening requiring the government to allow in people with valid immigrant visas from the seven majority-Muslim countries Mr. Trump sought to block.

...etc..



I wonder if Trump will fire the Judges too?

Maybe Trump should just dismantle the whole government, and build a new one in his own image.

That should work better.
