Who says hiring judges with “political purity” is not a thing?
SCOTUS proved today the necessity for the judges need to be partial to a political belief…..use the Constitution not a party spin……
President Trump scored a significant, if partial, victory from the Supreme Court on Monday: The justices agreed to allow a scaled-down version of his travel ban to take effect. The court also agreed to hear the case in the fall, setting the stage for a ruling that could have wide implications on presidential power, reports the New York Times. The upshot is that the Trump administration can put into effect a 90-day ban on travelers from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, along with a 120-day ban on the US refugee program. However, the court imposed what the Washington Post terms an important exception. The ban “may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States,” said the justices.
Those who have no family or business ties in the US, or who have never visited before, would likely be out of luck. The court added that the case may well be moot by the fall, noting the White House originally said the ban would be a temporary one while it reviewed vetting procedures. Once that review is completed, the restrictions would presumably be lifted anyway. Two lower courts have blocked the ban, a revised version from the Trump administration’s first effort, essentially declaring it to be unconstitutional. Trump has said the ban would take effect within 72 hours of court approval.
There you have…put enough conservs on the court and you can crap all over the Constitution.
With his victory you would think that he would be dancing a jig for his policies….but instead he wants an apology…..
“The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling,” the president wrote in a two-parttweet, referring to this story. “With 4 months looking at Russia under a magnifying glass, they have zero ‘tapes’ of [Trump] people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction. I should be given apology!” He also wrote that Obama didn’t go after Russia more aggressively because he assumed Hillary Clinton was going to win. Obama “colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good,” Trump tweeted.
How much juvenile BS will the American people stand…I know that his brainless supporters will see the need…but really?
I guess we have to wait for October for a final decision…..something for the MSM to fixate on for 4 months…..oh goody!
