The Travel Ban Goes into Effect

With a few minor exceptions, President Trump’s “travel ban” will go into effect, according to a decision by the Supreme Court today.

A YUGE win for the President. A YUGE win for the Constitution and the rule of law. [emphasis added to quotes]

In a victory for the Trump administration, the Supreme Court on Monday lifted key components of an injunction against President Trump’s proposed ban on travel from six majority-Muslim nations, reinstating much of the policy and promising to hear full arguments as early as this fall. …

“An American individual or entity that has a bona fide relationship with a particular person seeking to enter the country as a refugee can legitimately claim concrete hardship if that person is excluded,” the court wrote. “As to these individuals and entities, we do not disturb the injunction. But when it comes to refugees who lack any such connection to the United States, for the reasons we have set out, the balance tips in favor of the Government’s compelling need to provide for the Nation’s security.” …

“The Government has made a strong showing that it is likely to succeed on the merits – that is, that the judgments below will be reversed,” wrote Justice Thomas, supported by Alito and Gorsuch. “The Government has also established that failure to stay the injunctions will cause irreparable harm by interfering with its ‘compelling need to provide for the Nation’s security.’” …

In his opinion, Thomas criticized the majority for the compromise nature of Monday’s ruling, indicating he would have allowed the order to be enforced in full. Thomas said he feared “the Court’s remedy” would inspire a flood of new litigation.

“Today’s compromise will burden executive officials with the task of deciding — on peril of contempt — whether individuals from the six affected nations who wish to enter the United States have a sufficient connection to a person or entity in this country,” Thomas wrote. “The compromise also will invite a flood of litigation until this case is finally resolved on the merits, as parties and courts struggle to determine what exactly constitutes a ‘bona fide relationship,’ who precisely has a ‘credible claim’ to that relationship, and whether the claimed relationship was formed ‘simply to avoid §2(c)’ of Executive Order No. 13780.”

  1. CNN)Well-known ???? WHO REALLY CARES MISSY …the author J.K. Rowling trolled President Donald Trump on Thursday with just one quote:

    “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

    That quote, which she attributed to President Abraham Lincoln, “SO”?

    • It’s kind of a stupid quote. I know PLENTY of men who cannot, simply cannot, stand adversity. Mental hospitals, jails, “safe spaces,” and many other places are FULL of them. Apparently, the geniuses in the lamestream media have never heard of a search engine. This was PERHAPS said ABOUT Lincoln, not by him.

  2. can’t take IT ….suckers voted .. 14-0 for the 3-1/2 Miles of Rodeo Road

  3. ….
    SO …. BACK OFF if U CUNT’ take the TRUTH / HEAT …melt-down? ^^^

    • Uh, I believe that the millenials and the Gen-X’ers have already KILLED “romance” with their “hook-up” culture. Watch any TV show lately. Have you SEEN “romance” in any of them? There’s no such thing anymore. It’s sex and only sex. The more promiscuous and mechanical, the better.

  4. The Opposition Party is desperate. It has no real congressional leaders. The Dems are turning on Pelosi, & Schumer is a lightweight, as stated by President Trump, who knows Schumer from New York City. The Opposition Party is now led by angry “comics” like Kathy Griffin, Colbert, & the “journalists” at CNN & MSNBC, & the Times and Post. ….^^^^^^^

    Trump, and America, is winning. He appointed Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, won the travel ban in the Supreme Court, reduced illegal immigration, rescinded the Paris Climate Change agreement, allowed the pipeline, & issuing executive orders to undo the harm done by Obama.

    The “Russia” story is a Joke. There is “N O” ZERO!! evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians nor that the Russians affected the vote. Obama knew of Russian attempts to influence but did nothing. Loretta Lynch is being Investigated. Bernie Sanders is being Investigated. Hillary should be Investigated. Comey all but admitted that Lynch told him to let Hillary walk.

    “W I N N I N G” …. IT’s SUCH A DANG CRIME!!! …. USA WINS …over U CHEATERS … YEP …USA KEEP the “ACT”-ION UP while U all go LOW!!

    • Now Mika (Mike) is attacking Melania, claiming that she wants out of her marriage and only stays in the “worst job in the world” for her son’s sake. Melania fired back at her and, you know, I hope she files a lawsuit for slander. Melania says Mika doesn’t know her … which would be obvious to anybody that what she means is that NOBODY, especially some talking head idiot, can possibly know what’s going on in Melania’s mind or marriage. BUT, as usual, the media take it literally and now are going around showing photos of Mika with Melania and videos of her interviewing her. Now, if you were ever interviewed by a reporter, would YOU then believe that the reporter now “knows” you to the point that the person can reasonably and truthfully OPINE about the state of your marriage? What about Mika attacking Melania? Isn’t that sexist?

    Comey’s testimony reveals that he KN E W !!!! … that the report W A S Fabricated, which means that he Directed the FBI to Conduct a
    Witch Hunt …..not an investigation.
    I want to know if it was Comey that alerted the DNC that Seth Rich leaked the DNC emails to Wikileaks, which lead to his murder. O’ ??ponder that
    One lie supports the next.
    The NYT isn’t going to go back to ‘news’. It Can’t Afford to. It would Reveal the Entire >>>>>> Charade.<<<<<<

    • That is a YUGE detail. I didn’t realize (or maybe don’t remember) that a select “panel” of unidentified experts came to this conclusion and wrote the report and then that HILLARY and the DemoncRATS promoted the LIE that all 17 agencies agreed the Russians done it! What a load of crap. And they wonder why Trump calls them fake news. Why did it take them 5 months to “correct” their lie? Not to mention that even these “experts” could NOT ever arrive at the conclusion that the Russians hacked the DNC when nobody in the government even SAW the evidence of the server, because the DemoncRATS wouldn’t let them see it. IF the Russians did NOT do it, and there’s NO EVIDENCE that anybody in the intelligence community saw, then the entire construct about how the RUSSIANS wanted to HELP TRUMP falls apart. It’s all based upon a lie made up by the DemoncRATS.

  7. Genius of Trump & the NRA
    I could never say the things about Mika Brzezinksi that Donald Trump said the other day in a tweet. I was brought up to believe that a man never insults a woman in public (or in private, for that matter). Yet you have to admit it was a deliciously aggressive micturition by the president on the progressive political press.

    Aggressiveness has been missing for too long on the right. It seems that no matter how far the left Sinks in their Attacks on Republicans, the right can never seem to bring itself to fight back.

    Mika started it with her tweet of a bowl of Cheerios saying “Made for small hands,” implying the size of Trump’s hands (which are small) are a good

    ~ indication of the size of his penis — ??? WHAT A ROYAL ^^ BITCH!

    & that is just fine, no crossing the line there. Isn’t she just too classy?

    Yet, when the president fights back with his own tweet, he has crossed the line. Keep in mind he made no comment about the size of Mika’s breasts
    or anything to do with her vagina.

    It’s a Double standard that has been strictly enforced by left for some time but today more than ever. Trump is the elected first Republican in Memory who won’t shut UP & take it.

    • And for that reason, we love him. Now he’s body slamming CNN a la fake wrestling and the media go nutz, saying he’s inciting violence against the media! Too funny, considering that the same media defended the Trump-as-Caesar assassination play under the First Amendment and as “art.” They can’t have it both ways. I suppose they believe a president doesn’t have First Amendment rights.

    • As if “real” psychology isn’t bad enough, we have to deal with POP psychology. Sheesh. Simplistic analysis. So humans kill more of their own kind than most other species? Right off the bat, one has to wonder whether they’re comparing apples and oranges. What about species who don’t actively kill their offspring but who just leave them to their own devices? For example, turtles who don’t hang around to care for the young, or insects who produce massive numbers of offspring, “knowing” that most of them will be killed by other creatures for food. The bugs don’t hang around, however, to defend their young–they just let nature take its course, “hoping” that quantity overcomes predation. How about lions who routinely kill the babies of females they want to mate with? Lions are mammals and they looked at mammals, so maybe the turtles and bugs aren’t a good analogy, but there are plenty of mammals that depend on the same system of quantity to make up for a lack of child care past weaning. Does that count? They don’t actively KILL their baby rats, mice, rabbits, etc., but they do basically abandon them to their fates.

      I do notice that they don’t go anywhere near the role of RELIGION in pacifying this inherently “violent” species.

    • Old news but STILL FAKE NEWS because, as anybody with a smattering of scientific knowledge about DNA MUST admit: The jury’s still out and there’s no smoking Y-chromosome, so to speak. Yes, her descendants and Jefferson may have shared a Y-chromosome (did anybody test Thomas’s?), but so do hundreds of other men, even back in the day when she became impregnated. Anybody who’s done genealogy KNOWS, too, that even an avowed father might not be. And somebody with that Y-chromosome might jump into the family tree at ANY point in the generational list. It’s circumstantial evidence, at best. There’s no PROOF.

      Sally, btw, WAS the half-sister of Jefferson’s white wife. Might that explain why she lived a better life than other slaves on the plantation?

    • He’s gotten increasingly “bizarre” lately. He’s had a good run. Far longer than most with his affliction. It’s sad, actually, to see him jump into politics like this. One has to wonder why. Why now, too? Because he’s a scientist, are we supposed to put more stock in his political opinions?

    • Just dispensing with the “celebrity” filled Wednesday evening soirees should save us a bundle.

      • I wonder, however, how much the Obamas are running up in Secret Service protection during their multiple (separate) vacations.

  18. Reading the latest CNN threat:
    I can only urge Trump to do far more of the same.
    My preference would be to bring lawsuits against every CNN story,
    demanding that they reveal their sources, and holding contempt proceedings against anybody who doesn’t reveal.
    Sessions, what are you waiting for?
    Indictments against many should already have been issued.

    • Excellent point to bring up all the ANONYMOUS sources they claim to have (and to have vetted) in all the stories they use to undermine and destroy our president. They can DOX this private citizen but don’t bother to IDENTIFY all the anonymous sources they claim to have. Trump SHOULD sue them.
