Is Trump Going to Go Nuclear on the Judiciary?

How many divisions does the Ninth Circuit have?

Some good articles about this:

Mollie Hemingway on the five fatal flaws with the latest ruling against Trump's travel restrictions.

Michael Walsh reminds us that Congress has the power to remove any class of cases from the judiciary's balliwick.

If it has the balls to do so. Which this bunch of limp-dicks and corporate-sponsored globalists doesn't, alas.

this Josh Blackman piece pondering the "Revolt of the Judges" and whether the judiciary has decided to treat Trump as if he's not really president. He says that judges who seem to be taking their cues as to how to read Trump's public statements (in the most uncharitable light possible, of course) are practicing a new judicial doctrine which might be called "MSNBC deference."

That last from Via Instapundit, who has more, and wonders if Trump is coming close to his Jacksonian Moment.

If judges aren't going to accept that Trump is actually the President and has all the powers they were more than willing to concede Obama had (way more than willing, actually), then why should Trump accept that the judges have the powers they believe they do?

The people who claim to be sober and serious-minded patriots seem to be the ones who are actually the unhinged radicals pushing us, inexorably, to a Constitutional Crisis which may be the end of America as we currently know it.
