Supreme Court Upholds Block Of Trump’s Asylum Plan

We need some more True Cons on the Supreme Court, right?

“The Supreme Court turned back the Trump administration’s attempt to enforce a ban on granting asylum requests to illegal immigrants on the basis of where they enter the United States.

Lower courts had blocked President Donald Trump’s executive order that denied asylum opportunities to people who jumped the border in between official entry points between the U.S. and Mexico.

But in a 5-4 ruling, the nation’s highest court said that’s an unacceptable way to limit immigration.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s latest appointee, sided with the minority. Chief Justice John Roberts voted against the administration, joining the court’s four most liberal members.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg voted from her hospital bed, where she was recovering from surgery to remove cancerous nodes from her lungs. …

That Nov. 19 ruling drew an exasperated Trump to lash out at him as an ‘Obama judge,’ leading Roberts to issue a rare personal rebuke of the president.

‘We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,’ Roberts said in a statement distributed by the Supreme Court. ‘What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.’

Trump was on the golf course in Palm Beach, Florida at the time and tweeted his response.

‘Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have “Obama judges,” and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country,’ he wrote. …”

How many times has this happened?

There has been a Republican majority on the Supreme Court for decades now. It is like Lucy taking the football away from Charlie Brown. Every few years a new “True Conservative” is appointed to the Supreme Court and the conservative base is convinced that this time it will be different. This time we will have a solid conservative majority that will do all sorts of wonderful things for the base.

In the last few years, conservatives have replaced 4 out of 5 Republican appointed Supreme Court Justices with Roberts, Alito, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. In theory, the retirement of Anthony Kennedy as media darling and perpetual moderate swing vote should have changed the ideological balance of power on the court. David Souter and John Paul Stevens who were appointed by Republican presidents only to “evolve” while on the bench and vote with the Democrat Justices are also gone.

Nothing has changed. The scam goes on with Roberts “evolving” to become the new Kennedy.

  1. it’s not really a scam. there is tremendous prestige and media attention in being the ‘swing vote’. supreme court justices are just men. they have all the weaknesses men have, although perhaps less than the average man. but there will always be the temptation to step into that sweet, sweet media coverage, rather than living decades as some obscure judge that the average man has no idea about and who is never asked their opinion on television.

    roberts was questionable from the beginning, as are many GOPe justices. we knew since the 2010 PPACA ruling that he wanted to make this the ‘roberts court’ and stand there in the history books, similar to the warren court, i think it was.

  2. True conservatives are such treacherous, worthless, back-stabbing bastards.

    It’s developments like this that restore with me some degree of sympathy for Trump, despite his many failures, disappointments and missteps. Trump did what he promised to do, and what he could in this case, by using his executive authority to limit these fake asylum claims. And the establishment powers, with an assist from a Republican-appointed judge on this instance, just reversed it, undermining over 200 years of executive authority precedent This is an example of a development that is not Trump’s fault.

    I tend to let my emotions get ahead of me in analyzing Trump because he has been objectively disappointing in so many ways. However, even though he signed tax cuts, etc. and has run with a lot of traditional trucon priorities, it is definitely still the case that Trump is not a Jeb or a Rubio. Jeb or Rubio would have signed a 30,000,000 person amnesty by now and probably gotten another full-blown war started, too.

  3. And therein is the fatal flaw of the Constitution in that the Federalists did not put sufficient checks upon the Supreme Court and it has turned into a disaster exactly like the Anti-federalists predicted it would!~

  4. Good news is that general audience start noticing the problem. From DM comment section with 94 up votes.

    “””John Marshall, Galway, Ireland, 8 hours ago

    People doing things .

    Church was not burning witches, white genetic liberals infiltrated and corrupted church and they burned witches.
    Media is not lying, white genetic liberals infiltrated and corrupted media and they lie.
    Court never ignores the law, white genetic liberals infiltrate and corrupt court and they ignore the law.
    Nationalism does not want war with everybody. White genetic liberals infiltrate and corrupt national party,s and launch wars. Most recent example is Ukraine.

    Without understanding genetic white liberal problem, all reform efforts are useless. White genetic liberals infiltrate and corrupt every last institution. You think that you are law abiding citizen but really you are liberal abiding citizen. Because they wrote the laws…:D

    Jew knows genetic white liberal problem and uses them as a weapon. This system is called pathocracy. Power of mentally ill people.

    • Can’t argue with that. Seems like mentally ill people are in charge everywhere. I guess mental defectives naturally seek power over others?

  5. Anyone see Dershowitz on Tucker Carlson’s show the other day? Even though he came to discuss the Middle East he prefaced his appearance with the statement about disagreeing with Tucker on ‘mass immigration.’

    He actually used the word ‘mass,’ and in spite of how already indulgent Tucker was in his own statement.
    Wonder if the conservative base ever starts to notice jewish exceptionalism. Open borders for thee but not for me…

    • The “conservative base” worships the jewish god and the jewish people, so no, most of them will not. We threw away our civilization to save those viruses.

  6. Anyone from Harvard or Yale will turn out badly because they want the respect of their Harvard pals. A so-called populist should appoint someone who went to Purdue or whatnot.

  7. This asylum caravan thing is Trump at his dumb, bombastic worst — it is very very clear that 99.9% of these caravaners do not deserve/qualify for asylum — fleeing poverty and an overabundance of ordinary criminality has never been, and must now/never be seen as, grounds for asylum — Trump should have sought competent legal advice — then declared all of Central and South America ‘safe’ for asylum purposes (which they are) — the asylum applications could then be formally, quickly declined and the people pushed back across the border — guaranteed: Mexico would stop all future caravans — then ASAP conclude a ‘safe third country’ agreement with Mexico, which would 1) obligate any asylum seekers passing thru Mexico to apply for asylum in Mexico, and 2) legally obligate Mexico to stop future caravans (they are not required to do that now) — most of the time both Trump and his administration ooze incompetence.

  8. When evil forces have all the dirt on government people, they control them. John Roberts walks on his tippy toes when no one is looking.

  9. Proverbs 29:16 When the wicked are in authority, transgression increases,
    but the righteous will look upon their downfall.

  10. You cannot reform the system by being a part of the system.Its time blue states and red states to part peacefully and become separate nations. Otherwise it will happen violently in the decades to come and far exceed the death toll of the Civil War. The United States is not a nation. It’s a multiplicity of nations-many of them hostile to one another-held together only by a common economic system. Indeed America might be the world’s first “Anti-nation” in that it opposes both domestically and abroad all manifestations of true nationalism and has often marshaled its forces to make war upon such manifestations.
