A federal judge blocked the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline Thursday, ruling that the Trump administration hadnt justified changing President Obamas earlier rulings.
Judge Brian Morris of the U.S. District Court for Montana, who was appointed by Mr. Obama, handed environmentalists a huge victory by saying Mr. Trumps decision to sign the permit for the Canada-to-Texas pipeline shortly upon taking office did not have a sufficient basis ....

Will be overturned on appeal.
Trump should ask Judge Morris how many troops he has to enforce his edict.
Judges need to be held personally responsible for any costs to the taxpayer when their ridiculous rulings are overturned on appeal.
Because Gorebal Warning!
Thank god the judge is a scientific genius.
Full court press all over the country. Could it be a plan to attemp to overwhelm the administration as the Mob steals elections and protects itself from an emergent DOJ? My question is why now? Was this judicial autocrat waiting to avoid embarrassing Tester?
“President Obamas earlier rulings.”
obama got to make Rulings? Trump doesn’t now have the same ability to make rulings that can change obama’s rulings?
When do WE get to fight a war against the left the way they’re fighting one against us?
EVERY DAMN DAY the weasels use EVERY underhanded power at their disposal to defame us, stop our agenda and blatantly steal elections and it seems that we’re just supposed to sit back and go “oh, well, let’s let the system work its course” when they’ve CORRUPTED the system to their benefit.
seems like the attack is on across the board, antifa, pipeline, voter fraud, illegal invaders. when is it a good Time to push back?
I am not a lawyer, but over the summer there was a SCOTUS ruling that had a request for another case to review that would define the role of the Judiciary in over ruling actions by the Executive Branch. Essentially, the conservative members wanted to strip Federal Judges from this sort of power.
Anyone else remember it?
I think Trump wants one more Justice pick before that prototypical case comes before the SCOTUS.
It would jam the entire Democrat strategy on everything.
obama got to make Rulings? Trump doesnt now have the same ability to make rulings that can change obamas rulings?
No single judge should have the power to prevent the President,or any of his cabinet members,from doing something.The only judges who should have that power are the Justices of SCOTUS...in a vote.
PDJT, fire this SOB.
Since when does a sitting President have to “justify” a policy decision to anyone but the voters come reelection time? That judge is far too full of himself.
Doesn't Trump know that reversing ANY of Obama’s policies requires justifying it to a liberal judge?
He needs to read the constitution.
Supreme Court will undoubtedly reverse.
