Donald Trump Responds to Appeals Court Ruling on Executive Order on Temp Travel Ban … “SEE YOU IN COURT”


President Donald Trump responded to the 9th circus ruling to this executive order calling for a temporary travel ban by tweeting, “SEE YOU IN COURT”. And so they will as the 9th Circuit court of appeals has a 80% reversal rate at the United States Supreme Court. One has to wonder why they even have this court of appeals if that many decisions are overturned and reversed. It is obvious that this court is political and operates outside the U.S. Constitution.

“SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!” He later said to reporters that the judges had made “a political decision.”

“We have a situation where the security of our country is at stake, and it’s a very, very serious situation, so we look forward, as I just said, to seeing them in court,” he said.

The 9th Circuit’s Dangerous & Unprecedented Use of campaign statements to block Presidential Policy


A great piece from  Eugene Kontorovich, read is all.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has just upheld a nationwide temporary injunction on President Trump’s executive order relating to refugees and visas from certain countries. I think the court’s opinion is weak in most respects, but I will address one of the most interesting and potentially far-reaching aspects.

Generally, the president has vast discretion in issuing visas. One of the major arguments against the executive order is that while in principle a president can limit immigration from the seven affected countries, it would be unconstitutional for President Trump in particular to do so, because in his case the action is motivated by impermissible religious bias. The central exhibit for this argument is his campaign statements about a “Muslim ban.”

While the 9th Circuit did not address this at great length, focusing instead on due-process arguments, it did accept the basic validity of the form of the states’ argument. “The States’ claims raise serious allegations and present significant constitutional questions,” wrote the court.

There is absolutely no precedent for courts looking to a politician’s statements from before he or she took office, let alone campaign promises, to establish any kind of impermissible motive. The 9th Circuit fairly disingenuously cites several Supreme Court cases that show “that evidence of purpose beyond the face of the challenged law may be considered in evaluating Establishment and Equal Protection Clause claims.” But the cases it mentions do nothing more than look at legislative history — the formal process of adopting the relevant measure. That itself goes too far for textualists, but it provides absolutely no support for looking before the start of the formal deliberations on the measure to the political process of electing its proponents.

9th Circus Fedeal Appeals Court Rules Against President Trump on Travel Ban (Update: Trump’s Reaction … See You in Court”)


The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 3-0 yesterday to maintained the freeze on President Trump’s immigration order that would temporarily ban individuals from coming from 7 countries and entering the United States until the vetting process was examined and improved. Thus, they have refused to reinstate the temporary travel ban. Once again the liberal activist judges of the 9th circus court, the most over-turned appeals court in the United States have gone rogue.


A federal appeals panel has maintained the freeze on President Trump’s controversial immigration order, meaning previously barred refugees and citizens from seven majority-Muslim countries can continue entering the United States.

In a unanimous 29-page opinion, three judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit flatly rejected the government’s argument that suspension of the order should be lifted immediately for national security reasons, and they forcefully asserted their ability to serve as a check on the president’s power.

The judges wrote that any suggestion that they could not “runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our constitutional democracy.”

Trump reacted to the decision on Twitter, posting just minutes after the ruling, “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!” He later said to reporters that the judges had made “a political decision.”

Laurence Tribe, Harvard Law Professor, Constitutional Law Scholar & President Barack Obama Mentor Says That Obama Misspoke Regarding Comments About SCOTUS

Another bad day for Obama and his “judicial activism” comments … Yet another Obama “Lost in Smallness” moment.

President Barack Obama is going to rue the day when he made the ridiculous comments and vale threats to the Supreme Court Justices regarding “judicial activism” and Obamacare.  Emperor Obama actually questioned how an “unelected group of people” could overturn a law approved by Congress.

“I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”

How bad of a comment was this by Obama, even his former mentor, Harvard Law professor and Constitutional Law scholar Laurence Tribe was forced to say that Obama misspoke. Wow, if Tribe thinks that Obama was one of his best students, I hate to see the not-so good ones who have no concept of “judicial review” and Murbury v. Madison. Or is it just Obama that likes to mislead “We the People”?

Constitutional law scholar Laurence Tribe, a Harvard Law School professor and former mentor to President Barack Obama, said the president “obviously misspoke” earlier this week when he made comments about the Supreme Court possibly overturning the health-care law.

Mr. Tribe, who calls the president was one of his best students, said in an interview: “He didn’t say what he meant…and having said that, in order to avoid misleading anyone, he had to clarify it.”

Mr. Tribe said he saw no reason for the president to express his views on the matter, because everyone already knows he wants the case upheld.

“I don’t think anything was gained by his making these comments and I don’t think any harm was done,” Mr. Tribe said, “except by public confusion.”

You don’t think any harm was done, really? If Tribe really thought that no harm was done to Obama and Obama’s credibility he would not be commenting on The One’s misspeak and comment that Obama made was misleading people. This is hardly a ringing Obama endorsement when he has to be bailed out for looking and talking like gaffe prone VOP Joe Biden.

Obama not only had Tribe say he misspoke, but also got spanked by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, regarding Obama’s comments. Attorney General Eric Holder says he’ll comply with a federal judge’s request to type three single-spaced pages recognizing the authority of the federal courts to strike down laws passed by Congress. While Tribe said that Obama misspoke, Obama minion Eric Holder, actually defended Obama’s comments as appropriate. We can see why so many have called for Holder to resign.

Attorney General Eric Holder defended Obama’s comments today, calling them “appropriate” when he was asked by reporters if he’ll respond to the request for a written explanation by Judge Jerry Smith, a Reagan appointee on the appeals court.

Then there was White House Press Secretary and Obama minion mouth piece Jay Carney further exacerbating the Obama screw up by trying to defend Obama’s actions and words. Could these people torture the English language anymore? Next thing they will be telling us it all depends on what is, is.
