STAHL: There are those who believe that today, with the White House and Congress under Republicans, that it is incumbent upon the court system to do double-duty, to be the great balancer against perhaps overweening power.
KOZINSKI: That's certainly not our job. We are there to protect against abuses, but we're not there to be a political counterforce.
STAHL: But what happens when two branches are in one hand?
KOZINSKI (patiently explaining how democracy works): If they are both in the same hands, it means that the country, the people, want to move in that direction. I don't think it's the job of the judiciary to stand in the way.

WAY past the “use by” date!
There are those who believe today that Leslie Stahl is a fifth-column leftist-diseased media slut.
The old, “There are people who say...” routine.
“Some people say” she’s a used-up old media whorenalist.
she certainly had no objections when Democrats had The presidency and congress with a veto-proof majority
An old Dem media hack.
Ignorance is powerful with this one, padawan.
She is such an ass.
Marx, Castro, Mao, and many others would agree.
Hideous old Leftist bat.
LOL. That's "use" and "discard after use."
The court should issue execution warrants for people like this lefty scum bag.
She was never concerned about that when o-bung-hole was president.
Can you list what the democratic party stand for today? This woman and the rest of the left media, are aligning themselves with a party of murdering babies, illegally obtaining their goals, lies, world government, freedoms only for them, high taxes, bringing in illegals (terrorists among them) for their vote, sanctuary cities turned into terrorists free to roam as the elite will be protected, world governments more important than United States citizens, appointing supreme court judges, spewing hate... they align themselves with all this. This woman sides with this kind of party... the party they polish up to be “for the people”.
Poor Lesley....she is suffering, for the lack of having a working, realistic, functional brain. But...please leave her be...she is doing the yeoman’s work of helping to destroy the Democrat Party.
You see, folks...the American way is electing people to the POTUS, House & Senate...they run the country...not the judges!!! Media not to swift...across the board!!!
As for the courts, DJT will appoint and get confirmed at least two or, maybe three Supreme Court Justices!!!
I don't remember Leslie having her panties in a twist about two branches being in one hand when the Dems were in charge.
I really cannot stand that nasty, old witch! Glad that Judge Kozinski schooled her like a high school freshman in her first class EVAH on government and its proper role in our society.
EVERY time a so-called journalist uses the words, “some people” or “others” - they are surreptitiously inserting their personal opinions into the story. They think they are fooling us.
