Recently President Trump has been challenged by a district court and it has moved to the 9th Circuit where the ruling was not in his favor. 

It did not make sense to me that some inferior federal court in the state of Washington could shut down a process which is routine to the duties of the Executive branch of the Government, President Donald Trump's authority, he is head of the executive branch of the government. So I thought let's go see what the Constitution says about the jurisdiction of the courts and just who it is they have authority over and at what levels is he required to respond to court process.

I found what I was looking for in Article III Section 2. Second Paragraph: "In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be a Party, the Supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction."

I think it obvious that the framers of the Constitution did not intend for the inferior courts to interfere with the public ministers working under authority of the executive, and the same is true of the official business of the several states. There is no proper jurisdiction for these cases except the Supreme Court and until the case is filed and accepted by that court there is no valid case for the President to respond to. 

Each of the Judges and Justices involved should be facing impeachment for exceeding their authority and violations of the Constitution they have sworn to uphold and protect.

Article III

Section 1.

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. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behaviour, and shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office.

Section 2.

The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution, the laws of the United States, and treaties made, or which shall be made, under their authority;--to all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls;--to all cases of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction;--to controversies to which the United States shall be a party;--to controversies between two or more states;--between a state and citizens of another state;--between citizens of different states;--between citizens of the same state claiming lands under grants of different states, and between a state, or the citizens thereof, and foreign states, citizens or subjects.

In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in which a state shall be party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction. In all the other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make.

The trial of all crimes, except in cases of impeachment, shall be by jury; and such trial shall be held in the state where the said crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any state, the trial shall be at such place or places as the Congress may by law have directed.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
Thomas Jefferson



The best in books to make every conservative start thinking in new ways about America and the world being controlled by the Obama Administrations AND Republicans and Democrats.  Some surprises are in store for those who look!




Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.
