Here Comes Fascism!

It gets scarier every time I have to write a post with that headline. Seriously, what the FUCSKHFK


This is a direct transcript from an interview:

Face the Nation host John Dickerson: When I talked to Republicans on The Hill, they wonder, what in the White House -- what have you all learned from this experience with the executive order? 
Miller: Well, I think that it’s been an important reminder to all Americans that we have a judiciary that has taken far too much power and become in many case a supreme branch of government. [...] 
The end result of this, though, is that our opponents, the media and the whole world will soon see as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.

First of all, I don't think the judicial branch of the U.S. government has ever done anything to take more power for itself. Maybe I'm wrong, but my understanding is that all the judicial branch can do is rule on constitutional issues, and I don't know how an issue of giving the judicial branch more power would ever come to the Supreme Court? Like? How would?

But mostly, "will not be questioned."

This is starting to go beyond your standard dictator posing as a democratically elected figure and into King territory. Like "King Donald has been chosen by the Lord and his will is the Will of God!" type of thing. Dickerson is like "so what have you learned about checks and balances?" and Miller is like "OFF WITH THEIR HEADS."

Time for a good ol' fashioned peasant revolt, I say.
