     Robart is an outrageous liberal.  The New York Times reports that airlines were told by the government in a conference call Friday night to start allowing travelers that had been banned to begin flying. The Trump administration could reinstate the ban if it wins an emergency stay.  A federal judge in Washington state declared Friday that he would temporarily block enforcement of President Donald Trump's controversial ban on entry to the United States, and government authorities immediately began taking steps that would allow those previously affected to travel, according to a U.S. official familiar with the matter.

      The ruling from Judge James Robart was broader than similar ones before it, and it prompted officials to immediately communicate with airlines. At the same time, though, the White House said in a statement the Justice Department would "at the earliest possible time" file for an emergency stay of the "outrageous" ruling from the judge. Minutes later, it issued a similar statement removing the word "outrageous."

     "The president's order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people," the White House said.  The judge's ruling set up a high-stakes legal confrontation between the new president and the judicial branch over his temporary ban on refugees and citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries. In his opinion, Robert wrote that "fundamental" to the court's work was "a vigilant recognition that it is but one of three equal branches of our federal government."

     The big question is who will win at the end of the day.  Any death will be on the head of Robart and liberals.
