Posted on 06/26/2018 7:41:46 AM PDT by catnipman
The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 ruling, upheld President Donald Trump's restriction on travel to the United States from a handful of Muslim countries on Tuesday, giving the White House its first high court victory on the merits of a presidential initiative.

4 of these judges are insane. They want to allow terrorists to come here.
The point is that the injunction against the travel ban has been dissolved. That is it takes effect from this moment. I would now expect the defendant to file a motion for summary judgment based on the law as interpreted by SCOTUS. As I read the decision, there does not seem to be any limitation on the presidents authority under the statute, so what facts need to be tried?
It is my understanding of this
SCOTUS ruling, that the president
has the power to ban any country
that he deems a national security
threat, from entering the US.
Mexico, with its cartels, drugs,
and child trafficking does certainly
fit the criteria. If Trump pulls this
off, it’s going to be his biggest
Agree, but the original post (and my comment) were directed at McConnell’s blocking of Obama’s lame duck appointment to the Supreme Court. Which, if allowed to go through, would have given Dem sympathetic judges a 5-4 majority on the Court. It’s tough enough for Trump to do the right thing(s) as it is, with Gorsuch on the Court.
I should have put a /s. :>)
Come on...if Senator Blutarski says the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor, established fact!
I think thats a John Belushi reference
Well I don’t know how that fits into the conversation. Bush Sr. Did that all by his loathsome.
Hey liberals, up yours.
Funny how Obama publicly stating the Affordable Care Act was not a tax but arguing in.court that it was a tax didnt matter.
“However, lately Judge Nappy has been looking about as reliable as Dick Morris.”
judge nap just says what he’s paid to say, just like the entire lot of ‘em ... all the pundits supposedly on the right (except for Hannity) are nothing but whores, pure and simple ...
“Can a lower court overturn a ruling by the Supreme Court?????”
No. the poster was being sarcastic ...
True. But the Constitution calls for the President to nominate SC candidates. Obama was never a legitimate president. Ever. I agree that DC would resist cleaning up this mess. They are mostly cowards.
That would have been 5 commies to 4 conservatives had Hitlery Clintoon won the election.
We dodged a bullet. Had she won, I could see myself actually sliding into some level of mental depression. Instead, I am the happiest I have been in years.
I see it as nothing short of a miracle from God that Trump was elected. I truly do.
Make it permanent policy rather than temporary. Nobody from terrorist nations is allowed here, period.
There is nothing “closet” about the 4 commies on SCOTUS. They are all up front about it. It is no secret. They are not even trying to hide it because tbey have guaranteed life terms.
Lol. Blutarski’s gift just keeps on giving. He was on a roll.
“She [Justice Sotomayor] said her colleagues on the court arrived at the opposite result by “ignoring the facts, misconstruing our legal precedent, and turning a blind eye to the pain and suffering the Proclamation inflicts upon countless families and individuals, many of whom are United States citizens.””
Perhaps someone should point out the irony that the same argument can be made against Obamacare, which Sotomayor voted for. In upholding Obamacare the court misconstrued legal precedent and turned a blind key to the pain, suffering and financial ruin Obamacare would impose on the middle class.
When I use the word “closet,” I do so because none of the four (as far as may be discovered to date) are declared official members of the American Communist Party. So, while their actions are openly those of a socialist bent, still they have never publicly stated they are “official” communists - hence the term “closet.”
