Blast from the past: "The Judiciary branch is strong and WE. WILL. HOLD"

I posted this several months ago.

I'm glad to see that, so far, my friend has been right.


"The Judiciary branch is strong and WE. WILL. HOLD"
A few weeks ago, a dear old friend, a Republican-appointed federal judge, trying to console me during a moment of despair about the future of our country, said to me “The Judiciary branch is strong and will hold.” When I expressed skepticism, he leaned toward me, looked me dead in the eye, and said as firmly as he could without shouting: “We are strong and WE. WILL. HOLD.”

4. Yes I do remember this - thanks for the reminder!

I believe our federal judges are going to be the real unsung heroes in this epic struggle.

10. The judiciary is being stacked with lifetime judges who are Trumpsters.

But maybe it will hold?
