President Trump says he may break up 9th Circuit Court after rulings go against him

Apparently, the United States Senate would first have to pass legislation to break up the ninth circuit court of appeals. Legislation is currently pending, but Democrats would stand opposed to the breakup.

Hopefully, President Trump will not flip flop and will support Republicans in the Senate seeking the breakup.

The Hill

President Trump is considering breaking up the 9th Circuit Court after a federal district court judge in its jurisdiction blocked his order to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities.”

In a Wednesday interview with the Washington Examiner, Trump said “there are many people who want to break up the 9th Circuit. It’s outrageous.”

In the interview, Trump accused liberals of “judge-shopping” for a court that would strike down his executive order.

“I mean, the language on the ban, it reads so easy that a reasonably good student in the first grade will fully understand it. And they don’t even mention the words in their rejection on the ban,” Trump said.

Trump claimed the court oversteps its authority and that his opponents “immediately run” to the court for “semi-automatic” rulings.

The 9th Circuit earlier this year blocked Trump’s executive order that barred immigration from certain Muslim-majority countries and banned all Syrian refugees from the U.S. for a period of time.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump railed against the 9th Circuit over a judge blocking his order withholding funds from sanctuary cities.

If Trump decides to move forward with plans to break up the court, he’ll have Republican support. Earlier this year, Sen Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) voiced support for breaking up the court, which is seen as one of the most liberal in the country.

On Tuesday, a federal judge rejected Trump’s order to defund sanctuary cities, arguing that the White House had overreached with requirements not related to law enforcement.

The 9th Circuit Court covers Arizona, California, Alaska, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Washington and Hawaii, as well as Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.

Eighteen of the court’s 25 judges were appointed by Democratic presidents.

PARASITES DON’T CARE ABOUT THE LAW, JUST THEMSELVES.

Alaska Public covered the story of legislation aimed at breaking up the 9th circuit last year, before President Trump’s threat.

The age-old effort to split up the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is back. Republican senators Dan Sullivan of Alaska and Steve Daines of Montana have co-sponsored the latest bill. The Ninth Circuit is the federal appeals court for Alaska and eight other western states. It is by far the biggest of all the circuit courts, serving a population nearly double the second largest.

Campaigns to split it up date back to at least the 1940s.

Many critics say the court is dominated by California judges and too liberal. The co-sponsors, though, stuck to statistics in a statement today promoting their bill. The senators say the court has over 14,000 pending cases, more than three times the volume of any other circuit, and takes longer, on average, to resolve them.

The bill would leave California and Hawaii in the Ninth and move the other states to their own circuit.

California’s Democratic senators have fiercely opposed such bills. And environmental groups have charged that splitting the Ninth Circuit is really an effort to gerrymander the court.

CNN offers a balanced story on the issue that goes into more depth than this post.

What is clear is that Republicans should have fought tooth and nail to prevent liberals from being confirmed to serve on the 9th circuit. The liberal philosophy of legislating from the bench is not what the framers of the Constitution had in mind.

Nonwhite Democrat Hawaiian Judge Extends Block on Trump Travel Ban

JUDGE DERRICK WATSON. POLITICAL HACK MASQUERADING AS A JUDGE?

Judge Derrick Watson claims that President Donald Trump’s travel ban targeting six countries known to produce and harbor terrorists is unconstitutional because it discriminates against a religion.

Has this judge ever read the Koran? Does he really believe that Islam is a religion, when it clearly is a political ideology of conquest masquerading as a religion.

NPR

President Trump’s executive order to restrict travel to the U.S. from six majority-Muslim countries and suspend the U.S. refugee program has been blocked indefinitely.

The state of Hawaii sued to stop the travel ban, arguing the president’s policy violates the Constitution. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson has extended his nationwide order blocking the executive order while the lawsuit continues.

Hawaii officials argued that the ban — a modified version issued after the first executive order was also blocked by federal courts — discriminates against travelers on the basis of religion. Watson said in his ruling that the state had shown “a strong likelihood of success on the merits of their Establishment Clause claim, that irreparable injury is likely if the requested relief is not issued.”

As the Two-Way has reported, the president sought to deny entry to citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days and suspend the U.S. refugee program for 120 days.

The first part of the executive order, affecting travelers from the six majority-Muslim countries, was also blocked by a U.S. district judge in Maryland. That preliminary injunction remains in effect. The Trump administration is appealing the Maryland ruling to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The Trump administration promised “extreme vetting” of people seeking visas, and has issued guidelines in a series of memorandums from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to U.S. embassies.

The judge is clearly wrong in this case, as judges often are. There are at least a dozen Muslim countries that are not on the banned list. There is no discrimination against Muslims because of that fact.

In World War II, imagine a ban against the Japanese being overturned on the grounds that Shinto (a Japanese religion) was being discriminated against.

Imagine a ban against Germans being overturned during the war on the grounds that Christians were being discriminated against.

Judge Derrick Watson is a fifth columnist traitor who deserves the same fate as all traitors.

Maryland Judge Considers Forcing President Trump to Double “Refugee” (Dangerous Parasite) Inflow

There is no rule of LAW in America now. There are only political opinions of liberal judges who hate America–white and free America anyway.

As Rush Limbaugh has noted, we are on the verge of a Constitutional crisis. Either the Supreme Court steps in with some real law (not likely) or Trump risks being impeached and thrown out of office for defying these liberal judges.

Civil war, anyone?

Breitbart

A federal District Court judge in Maryland is considering whether he should order President Donald Trump to double the annual inflow of refugees up to 100,000 per year.

Any demand by the judge that the federal government airbus an extra 50,000 migrants — including many adherents of Islam’s sharia legal system — into American neighborhoods would be an unusual intervention into government roles normally left to the elected President and Congress.

If actually implemented, the judge’s plan also would be extremely expensive for Americans, because state and local communities subsidize each new immigrant with roughly $1,600 each per year for decades.

The judge who is at the heart of this case is Theodore Chuang. Learn more about the outrageously partisan Judge Chuang here.

Trump revokes Obama guidelines on transgender bathrooms

The title of this post is the same as the title of the linked article at Reuters.

Most of the big news sites are running slanted titles, taking a whack at Donald Trump, portraying him as some sort of monster for leaving it up to the states to decide on what school bathroom policies will be for trannies.

It’s like a new Holocaust.

Sample slanted headlines:

CNN: Trump administration withdraws federal protections for transgender students

WaPo: Trump administration rolls back protections for transgender students

U.S. News and World Report: Trump Administration Set to Eliminate Protection for Transgender Students

HuffPo: White House: States Should Get To Decide Whether To Discriminate Against LGBTQ Students

Since Reuters approached the subject with a fair headline, I’ve embedded their story in this post. Kudos to them.

Reuters

President Donald Trump’s administration on Wednesday revoked landmark guidance to public schools letting transgender students use the bathroom of their choice, reversing a signature initiative of former Democratic President Barack Obama.

Obama had instructed public schools last May to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms matching their chosen gender identity, threatening to withhold funding for schools that did not comply. Transgender people hailed it as victory for their civil rights.

Trump, a Republican who took office last month, rescinded those guidelines, even though they had been put on hold by a federal judge, arguing that states and public schools should have the authority to make their own decisions without federal interference.

The Justice and Education departments will continue to study the legal issues involved, according to the new, superseding guidance that will be sent to public schools across the country.

Reversing the Obama guidelines stands to inflame passions in the latest conflict in America between believers in traditional values and social progressives, and is likely to prompt more of the street protests that followed Trump’s Nov. 8 election.

A couple hundred people gathered in front of the White House to protest the Republican president’s action, waving rainbow flags and chanting: “No hate, no fear, trans students are welcome here.” The rainbow flag is the symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, people.

“We all know that Donald Trump is a bully, but his attack on transgender children today is a new low,” said Rachel Tiven, chief executive of Lambda Legal, which advocates for LGBT people.

Conservatives such as Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who spearheaded the lawsuit challenging the Obama guidance, hailed the Trump administration action.

“Our fight over the bathroom directive has always been about former President Obama’s attempt to bypass Congress and rewrite the laws to fit his political agenda for radical social change,” said Paxton, a Republican.

This PDF of Government Dear Colleague Letter on Transgenders Issued by the Obama Administration is now history. Praise God. Women are girls were just made a little safer now that pedos and rapists can’t dress like women and invade their spaces.

Protest all they want, it’s not fair to millions of women and girls to be made uncomfortable by having a penis in the ladies room.

First Obama “Dreamer” Arrested: “We are hoping this detention was a mistake”

FEELING AFRAID YET, PUTA?

It’s too early to celebrate yet, but for those supporting the American worker over the illegal alien, there is good news.

It appears that the first effort to expel a so-called Dreamer has taken place in the U.S. state of Washington. A young Mexican male gang member has been detained, but not deported yet.

Reuters Mobile

U.S. immigration authorities have detained a 23-year-old Mexican man who was brought to the United States illegally as a child and given a work permit during the Obama administration, according to a lawsuit challenging the detention in Seattle federal court.

The man’s lawyers say this could be the first time under U.S. President Donald Trump that a person covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, has been taken into immigration custody. The program was established in 2012 by Democratic President Barack Obama to allow those brought to the country while young to attend school and work.

Ethan Dettmer, a partner in the law firm Gibson Dunn & Crutcher and one of the lawyers representing the man, Daniel Ramirez Medina, said he is not aware of any other DACA recipient who has been arrested.

DANIEL RAMIREZ-MEDINA.

“We are hoping this detention was a mistake,” he added.

Ramirez was a “self-admitted gang member,” said Rose Richeson, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), in a statement.

“ICE officers took Mr Ramirez into custody based on his admitted gang affiliation and risk to public safety.”

REALITY.

LEFTIST PROPAGANDA. CONTRAST TO REALITY ABOVE.

It’s very clear that the lawyers for muh Mexican are going to be arguing before liberal judges that the arrested “dreamer” has a right to stay in the States. But if Obama gave him that right, wouldn’t Trump have the right to take it away?

McCain and Graham Join in Chorus of Voices Trashing Trump Travel Ban

Liberals are comparing Muslims turned away from the U.S. to Jews turned away in and around the time of World War II.

There’s no comparison. The apt comparison would be the U.S. accepting migrants from Germany and Japan in the name of “inclusion” and tolerance while Americans were dying at sea and on battlefields.

Not every Muslim is a terrorist. Yet. But every Muslim is a potential terrorist because of his religion and culture. Furthermore, these creatures are genetically endowed via inbreeding to be violent. The fighting in that region of the world has been going on for thousands of years. Everywhere they go, it creates more death and destruction.

Washington Post

A top Trump official appeared on Sunday to walk back one of the most controversial elements of an executive order that bans entry to the United States from refugees, migrants and foreign nationals from seven mostly Muslim countries: its impact on green-card holders, who are permament legal residents of the United States.

“As far as green-card holders going forward, it doesn’t affect them,” Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, said on NBC News’s “Meet the Press,” contradicting what government officials had said only a day earlier.

That nonsense makes you wonder if Reince Priebus isn’t a double agent infiltrator. His statement is breaking in the New York Times too. It’s odd.

Other senior administration officials on Sunday defended Trump’s ban after a weekend of intense backlash over the broadness of the executive order, even as they sought to clarify its reach. Lawmakers from both parties, including Republican senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), spoke out against the action, and federal judges quickly ruled against parts of it.

In a joint statement, McCain and Graham said the government has a responsibility to defend its borders but must uphold “all that is decent and exceptional about our nation.”

“It is clear from the confusion at our airports across the nation that President Trump’s executive order was not properly vetted,” they said, adding, “Such a hasty process risks harmful results.”

Songbird John McCain and Lindsay Grahamnesty are not credible sources of commentary on any government policy. They are fake news.

Judicial rulings in several cities across the country overnight immediately blocked enforcement of the ban to various degrees, but the Department of Homeland Security issued a statement early Sunday indicating it would continue to implement President Trump’s action.

The statement, which did little to clear up the confusion and frustration playing out at airports across the globe, said the administration “will comply with judicial orders” even as it continues to carry out the president’s order.

As noted in an earlier post, between 100 and 200 Muslims temporarily stranded in American airports should create no problems. The left is creating the problems in order to fool people.

Reeeeeeeeeeee. We shall not be fooled.

New Yorkers are idiots. Everybody knows that.

Christian Leaders Denounce Trump Travel Ban That Saves Christian Lives

THE WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH IS LOOKING PRETTY GOOD TODAY.

Today is Sunday, the Christian holy day. The Christian is no more safe from Muslims on Sunday than any other day, though. To be safe from the “religion of peace” requires separation. But Christian leaders want “inclusion,” because anything else would be racist, Islamophobic, bigoted, biased, cruel, mean, and just plain un-Christian, according to them.

And so now that meanie Donald Trump receives God’s curses from them.

New York Times

Over the last decade, Christians in the United States have grown increasingly alarmed about the persecution of other Christians overseas, especially in the Middle East. With each priest kidnapped in Syria, each Christian family attacked in Iraq or each Coptic church bombed in Egypt, the clamor for action rose.

During the campaign, President Trump picked up on these fears, speaking frequently of Christians who were refused entry to the United States and beheaded by terrorists of the Islamic State: “If you’re a Christian, you have no chance,” he said in Ohio in November.

Now Mr. Trump has followed through on his campaign promise to rescue Christians who are suffering. The executive order he signed on Friday gives preference to refugees who belong to a religious minority in their country, and have been persecuted for their religion. The president detailed his intentions during an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network on Friday, saying his administration is giving priority to Christians because they had suffered “more so” than others, “so we are going to help them.”

But if Mr. Trump had hoped for Christian leaders to break out in cheers, that is, for the most part, not what he has heard so far. A broad array of clergy members has strongly denounced Mr. Trump’s order as discriminatory, misguided and inhumane. Outrage has also come from some of the evangelical, Roman Catholic and mainline Protestant leaders who represent the churches most active in trying to aid persecuted Christians.

The so-called Christians protesting Trump’s order are fake Christians, whose highest value is virtue signaling to their social justice warrior colleagues. They would be among the first to convert to Islam if the West is Islamified. Call them wolves in sheep’s clothing.

These so-called leaders know how to twist logic into pretzel form.
