Supreme Court Will Hear Travel Ban Case

This was unexpected:

“WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court announced on Monday that it would decide whether President Trump’s revised travel ban was lawful, setting the stage for a major decision on the scope of presidential power.

Mr. Trump’s revised executive order, issued in March, limited travel from six mostly Muslim countries for 90 days and suspended the nation’s refugee program for 120 days. The time was needed, the order said, to address gaps in the government’s screening and vetting procedures.

Two federal appeals courts have blocked critical parts of the order.

The administration had asked that the lower court ruling be stayed while the case moved forward. The court granted part of that request in its unsigned opinion.

The justices, in effect, said that foreigners with ties or relationships in the United States would not be prohibited from entering the country. But, those applying for visas who had never been here, or had no family, business or other ties could be prohibited. …”

There are rumors that Anthony Kennedy could be gone by October.

It is worth noting here that Gorsuch was in favor of implementing the full Muslim ban. If Kennedy can be pushed out, there is a good chance there won’t be a cucked 5-4 decision.

  1. The Fash the Nation school is vindicated:

    Actionable politics is what we should be doing, not the dead end of “metapolitics”.

    For example, running candidates in GOP primaries, urging a reset of the voter rolls, working to get any and all immigration policies implemented.

    We dont have time for “metapolitics”, ask the South Africans what happens when the brown tide gets the upper hand – it’s TKO!

    Besides, politics has proven to swell the ranks much more than metapolitics.

  2. They heard it, and decided to overrule the lower courts overruling of Trump’s Travel Ban.

    The travel Ban, weak though it is, pretty much stands.

    Next – on to religious rights.

  3. i.e., “some Muslims from some countries are banned for 120 days”…except “if they can show a connection to anyone or any institution in ‘Murka”. Horseshit.

    reality: Trump’s State Department has more than doubled the weekly insourcing of Black Muslims via the “refugee resettlement” racket. Now @ c. 1,000 per week. All of whom will then bring over their “connections”.

  4. Well, at least the invasion of beaner babies at the Messican border has stopped. Trump is far from ideal but he’s no African-born, white-hating communist faggot like his predecessor.

  5. Constitutionally speaking Congress has complete authority to enact laws pertaining to immigration and naturalization. This is an express power under the actual Articles of the Constitution. And they have delegated some of that responsibility to the Executive Branch and the President, recognizing that the President is in a very good position to assess threats and dangers. So, basically, we have a situation where Congress and the President are acting in unison for the purposes of implementing law on a power expressly granted to Congress.

    Under such circumstances, the Court has historically followed Justice Jackson’s concurrence in the 1950s case, Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co. Basically, the Court will give the “strongest of presumptions” to the Executive action and the “widest latitude of judicial interpretation” and the person challenging the law bears the “heaviest of burdens” in having the decision overturned.

    The Travel Ban cases were a real eye opener for me, because they not only departed so strikingly away from the decades of precedent, but actually examined closely statements that the President made while on the campaign trail. I have always looked at liberal justices with a healthy amount of skepticism, but if this is the way the law is going to be interpreted, in such a whimsical, SJW way, then there may as well be no law at all.

    My hunch is that most of the justices will find the Travel Ban Constitutional. I would say a 7-2 Vote, with Kagan and the Wise Latina voting against the exercise of Presidential authority.

  6. Funny how Backdoor Barry and Slick Willie were able to invoke “executive orders” and “executive privilege” to bypass the Constitution and get away with all kinds of mischief but Trump cannot use his lawful authority as President to stop foreigners from invading the country?

    So much for the “rule of law”, eh?

  7. The ban needs to cover a far broader spectrem- all of Africa, EVERY Middle Eastern nation, Asia- especially the Chinese- and it needs to be permanent.
    Expect an increase in leftard activity as a result of the new ruling. That will be entertaining. But it falls short by a country mile.
    Many African shitdumps are not Islamic……so they can still arrive…..great! A shitskin is still a shitskin.
    There also needs to be a permanent ban from Israel. They’re notorious for trying to change the culture in white countries and are not wanted.

  8. Prediction: Kennedy will cuck and side with Sotomayor and the three Jews in overturning Trump’s travel ban. Kennedy will also stay on through all of Trump’s first terms in the hopes that Trump will lose so Kennedy can be replaced by a Democrat, just like David Souter did.
