WHINING AND SHOOTING GIRAFFES

SICK AND TIRED OF THE LIBERALS HERE IN NEW HARMONY WHINING AND COMPLAINING ABOUT …………

Trump Pardons Arpaio or does he?

Here is the news TRUMP PARDONS ARPAIO

Here is my thinking on this. I know the president theoretically has unlimited pardon powers. But, the federal courts are the only part of our government empowered to enforce the Constitution. Arpaio was convicted of contempt for willfully refusing to obey the order of the federal courts to obey the constitution. It was not accidental or unintentional on Arpaio's part. He publicly announced that he would ignore the federal court's order.

If Trump pardons Arpaio, as he seems to have done, does that mean Trump has the power to prevent the federal courts from enforcing the constitution? Does it mean, that anyone of Trump's followers can ignore both the constitution and the federal courts and be protected by Trump?

I don't think the federal courts are going to take this lying down.  If they do take it lying down, they may as well close up shop, because they will have ceded all of their power and authority to Donald Trump.

Trump may be a soulless psychopath, but you have to admit, the bastard has a real penchant for destroying our government.
