SCOTUS VICTORY FOR TRUMP TRAVEL BAN … MAKING AMERICA SAFE AGAIN.
VIA CNBC, On Tuesday the SCOTUS ruled 5-4 in favor of President Donald Trump’s order to restrict travel from several seven countries to the United States. Those countries include, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. As reported by CNBC, “The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Chief Justice Roberts says. “The text says nothing about religion.” President Trump lauded the victory, while the LEFT lost their collective minds. The Left and the MSM call it a Muslim ban even though according to the Pew Research Center in 2010, there were 50 Muslim-majority countries in the world. According to the math, only 90% of Muslim countries are not on the banned list as not even the LEFT could say that North Korea and Venezuela were Muslim counties.
The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in favor of President Donald Trump’s September order to restrict travel from several majority Muslim countries to the United States.
In the 5-4 opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court found that Trump’s travel restriction fell “squarely” within the president’s authority. The court rejected claims that the ban was motivated by religious hostility.
“The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Roberts wrote. “The text says nothing about religion.”
The case, Trump v. Hawaii, has been central to the administration’s travel policy, presenting a key test of the president’s campaign promise to restrict immigration and secure America’s borders.
The LEFT loses their mind over this travel ban, seriously? Let’s take a look at those on the list, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen. Iran, the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world. Really, we should think that they are properly vetting individuals, really? Libya, thanks to Obama’s destabilization of that country, it is in chaos. Somalia? Do we even know who is running it other than war lords? Syria, and Yemen? C’mon folks.
But as per CNN, President Barack Obama did the same thing and had many of these same countries on his ban list. So why is the LEFT all of a sudden going crazy when the Obamamessiah pretty much did the same? TDS of course.
In December 2015, President Obama signed into law a measure placing limited restrictions on certain travelers who had visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan, or Syria on or after March 1, 2011. Two months later, the Obama administration added Libya, Somalia, and Yemen to the list, in what it called an effort to address “the growing threat from foreign terrorist fighters.”
Pentagon Briefing on Syrian Chemical Weapons Airstrikes: Defense Secretary James Mattis “Assad didn’t get the message last year” (VIDEO)
Defense Secretary James Mattis … “Assad didn’t get the message last year”
Following the airstrikes last night in Syria, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Gen. Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, state the airstrikes launched Friday evening were designed to inflict “maximum damage” to Syrian chemical weapons facilities. The Assad regime once again used brutal and illegal chemical weapons to kill innocent women children and other innocents. The U.S., France and UK found these actions unacceptable. Mattis stated, “As our Commander in chief, the president has the authority under Article 2 of the Constitution to use military forces over seas to defend important United States interests.”
A note to the LEFT and the “never-Trumpers” who oppose Trump’s actions when you sat by like obedient Lemmings when Obama used similar action, is your hate for one individual really so much that you would allow the use of chemical weapons against women and children to go unchallenged? Really?
President Trump Makes Announcement from White House at 9:00 PM of Precision Strikes against Syria’s Chenical Weaopns Sites (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump orders a precision strikes on Bashar al-Assad’s chemical weapons sites in Syria. President Trump stated it was a combined operation with France and the UK, United Kingdom, is underway.
President Donald Trump on Friday ordered the United States military — in conjunction with France and the United Kingdom — to launch strikes on Syria in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad on a Damascus suburb last week.
The president said the U.S. would aim to hit sites “associated with the chemical weapons capabilities” of Assad’s regime.
“We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents,” Trump said in remarks from the White House, adding that the U.S. and its allies had “marshaled their righteous power.”
Trump urged Iran and Russia to withdraw their support for what he called Syria’s “barbarism and brutality.”
In a direct address to the two countries, he asked, “What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men and women and children?”
ANOTHER WIN FOR TRUMP …
Yesterday, in a 7 -2 decision the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump administration travel ban by residents of six mostly Muslim countries. This is a huge victory for Trump, the rule of law and the safety of American citizens. This is a tremendous loss for Democrats and liberals who have no want or need to protect its citizens from outside hostile individuals. So much for all of the liberals who said Trump could not do such things like protect the United States of America. Although the decision is not final, it means that the ban can go into place while the cases are heard. With a 7-2 decision, it is most likely the ban will be upheld when the case is finally heard. The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.
The Supreme Court on Monday allowed the Trump administration to fully enforce a ban on travel to the United States by residents of six mostly Muslim countries.
This is not a final ruling on the travel ban: Challenges to the policy are winding through the federal courts, and the justices themselves ultimately are expected to rule on its legality.
But the action indicates that the high court might eventually approve the latest version of the ban, announced by President Donald Trump in September. Lower courts have continued to find problems with the policy.
Just two justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, noted their disagreement with court orders allowing the latest policy to take full effect.
The new policy is not expected to cause the chaos that ensued at airports when Trump rolled out his first ban without warning in January.
The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. Lower courts had said people from those nations with a claim of a “bona fide” relationship with someone in the United States could not be kept out of the country. Grandparents, cousins and other relatives were among those courts said could not be excluded.
After President Trump & Putin Finally Meet … After 2 Hours the US and Russia Reach Syria Cease-Fire Deal
THIS IS WHAT UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL LEADERSHIP LOOKS LIKE …
It is what everyone was anticipating from the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, the meeting between American President Donald J. Trump and Russian President Putin. Following a 2 hours meeting between President Trump and Putin in which many important topics were discussed, agreement was reached Friday on a cease-fire in southwest Syria. According to the AP, the cease-fire goes into effect Sunday at noon Damascus time.
The United States and Russia struck an agreement Friday on a cease-fire in southwest Syria, crowning President Donald Trump’s first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is the first U.S.-Russian effort under Trump’s presidency to stem Syria’s six-year civil war.
The cease-fire goes into effect Sunday at noon Damascus time, according to U.S. officials and the Jordanian government, which is also involved in the deal.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who accompanied Trump in his meeting with Putin, said the understanding is designed to reduce violence in an area of Syria near Jordan’s border that is critical to the U.S. ally’s security.
It’s a “very complicated part of the Syrian battlefield,” Tillerson told reporters after the U.S. and Russian leaders met for more than 2 hours on the sidelines of a global summit in Hamburg, Germany.
Of the agreement, he said, “I think this is our first indication of the U.S. and Russia being able to work together in Syria.”
From The Washington Examiner:
President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin sat down Friday for more than two hours at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, for their first face-to-face meeting since Trump took office.
“Putin and I have been discussing various things, and I think it has gone very well,” Trump said before their lengthy conversation began.
“We’ve had some very, very good talks. We’re going to have a talk now, and obviously, that will continue,” Trump said ahead of the meeting, which had been scheduled to last just 30 minutes. “But we look forward to a lot of very positive things happening for Russia, for the United States and for everybody concerned and it’s an honor to be with you.”
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson joined Trump for the closed-door meeting. Putin brought his foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, to the meeting as well.
Sadly, all the whiners on the LEFT can bitch about is the fact that Trump said it was an honor to meet Putin.
Trump, a Republican who called it an “honor” to meet with the Russian president, drew swift criticism from Democrats at home, who accused him of dismissing U.S. intelligence and giving Putin’s denial, reiterated on Friday, of Russian interference too much weight.
