Didn't take long.

This is gonna be a drawn out affair.
I can't help but wonder if this saga would have been shorter if they'd just allowed the 3 month ban to stay in place.


Nevertheless here we are.


The US has filed an appeal against a Seattle judge's block of US President Donald Trump's executive order that prohibited people to travel to the country from seven Muslim-majority countries, Reuters has reported.

I think President Trump will move it along very quickly. It is clear he has the authority to issue the EO.

This just shows that the entirety of the US is fragmented in all three branches.

All of those branches need a heavy pruning.

Of course he has the authority to issue the EO. That does mean it will stand up in court.

Remember Obama's immigration EO? The one that didn't stand up in court? He had the authority to issue it, right?

This ruling could set a lot of standards for future attempts at controlling immigration.

Just received this information and was going to start a thread myself.

The 9th circuit's ruling from Seattle will be overturned. It is probably the Most Reversed court in the land. They get it wrong all the time.

This is good news.

Now watch as the media and Dem politicians start their confusion and obstruction tactics.

The Democrats obstructionist now turned anarchist that have pledge to interrupt the presidential power in the nation because is not Hillary, doesn't want this in the Supreme court because is nothing unconstitutional about it, and none of the complains base then on that.

Trump will push it to the supreme court, but not until he gets his candidate to the bench sworn in.

We are making history in this country and the Democrats are going to come out from this as nothing but a whole bunch of American traitors.

I see their party dissolving after Trumps presidential term.

Americans will never forget how they are acting against the will of the American people to pander to foreigners around the world.

So, Trump will control the SCOTUS?
You really think so?

That's not what she said.

Trump is waiting to put a man with a strong dedication to the rule of law on the bench that understands the constitution as it is written and won't legislate from the bench.

I think that's what Marg meant.

As opposed to the other justices?

Thanks Queen, I try to ignore rhetoric because is counterproductive to argue against it.

No matter what happens, it can never be said that President Trump didn't TRY to cover all bases.

Taken to extreme, that argument leads to: "No matter what happens, it can never be said that Napoleon didn't TRY to unify Europe."

End justifies the means, right?

From the CNN article in the OP
Interesting development, not unexpected.

The Justice Department is expected to file its brief laying out its legal argument later Saturday night to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which will hear the appeal. The three judges who will likely hear the appeal -- assuming no one has to step aside over any conflicts -- are: Judge William Canby, who was appointed by President Jimmy Carter; Richard Clifton, who was appointed by Bush; and Michelle Friedland, a President Barack Obama appointee.

Phage, Obamas challenged EO was used to change law which is not within Presidential authority. Telling folks not to uphold law, is not the law.

Trumps EO is based on upholding existing law which is within Presidential authority.

However when Obama issued EO for six month ban on Iraqi refugees using same law due vetting problems, nary a whisper.

I agree with other poster about democrat party demise as they will be forever tarred and feathered with this misuse of powers that is deemed contrary to national security by majority in flyover country.

No better way to drive stake than this conflabation of the utterly rediculous.

Well, the whole reason for the 3 branches, is so that no one person, or one branch can hog all the authority, and have their will dominate.

The founding fathers attempted to create a system that would prevent tyranny.

I think that under Trump' rule, this Constitution will get its first real test.

Will the Constitution hold up to an authoritarian ruler like Trump?

Will it constrain his domineering will?

Will it protect "the people" from the excesses of governing individuals?

All this is unknown.

Please cite an Obama EO banning Iraqi refugees for six months.
