About Me

I'm an owner/operator long haul truck driver out of Arizona. My truck is a Peterbilt 389 long nose with the full size sleeper that's loaded with the latest technology. It has the Cat C15 engine coupled to an Eaton Fuller RTLO 18918B 18 speed transmission. I love the nomadic lifestyle and to top it off, I get paid to see the beauty of this country! Keep on truckin.

Trump ‘violates all recognized democratic norms,’ federal judge says in biting speech on judicial independence


Video by The Washington Post

In an unusually critical speech that lamented the public’s flagging confidence in the independence of the judicial branch, a federal judge slammed President Trump for “feeding right into this destructive narrative” with repeated attacks and personal insults toward judges he dislikes.

U.S. District Judge Paul L. Friedman of the District of Columbia said Trump’s rhetoric “violates all recognized democratic norms” during a speech at the annual Judge Thomas A. Flannery Lecture in Washington on Wednesday.

“We are in unchartered territory,” said Friedman, 75, an appointee of President Bill Clinton. “We are witnessing a chief executive who criticizes virtually every judicial decision that doesn’t go his way and denigrates judges who rule against him, sometimes in very personal terms. He seems to view the courts and the justice system as obstacles to be attacked and undermined, not as a coequal branch to be respected even when he disagrees with its decisions.”

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment early Friday on Friedman’s speech
