    If there is a way around this I’m sure that Trump will find it. Or perhaps he’ll keep his ammunition dry and use it to get Mitch to use the nuclear option to get Gorsuch approved immediately… Trump will work something out…

    I think Trump found out about this ruling and double down on his EO. I thought it was a little odd when he tweeted 5 hours ago ” We must keep evil out of this country. ” trolling maybe!

    The judge can only order to re-open the visa application process, but can’t order the visas must be approved. With extreme vetting in place, most visa applications will be rejected from that seven countries, guaranteed.

  10. I don’t want to give too much away, but a “boot on the ground” is confident that we will get a stay w/o going to the 9 CoA (which is stacked with lefties). I am intentionally leaving out the details.

    The DOJ should file a complaint against this judge for his overreach… start an investigation… make an example of him… make his life hell… fight back!

    Ultimately, the federal courts do not have power over the president, as they have no means of enforcing their orders. Only the congress can impose its will on the president, as they hold the power of impeachment and removal from office.

    Trump will seek to have the courts affirm his statutory and constitutional authority. Should they not, the president would have a duty to uphold the authority of the executive branch of government, as a co-equal, sovereign, branch of government, particularly in matters of national security; and the congress would be duty bound to side with the president and not pursue impeachment and removal from office, thereby affirming his constitutional and statutory authority on matters of national security and immigration by aliens.


    • Dale says:

      “duty bound” looks good on paper, but I don’t trust this congress, neither Republican nor Democrat, to feel duty bound to do what’s right for the country.

      • Allen Sutton says:

        The congress would not reach the two-thirds majorities in each body to impeach and remove the president. In effect, even if they ignore their duty, they would protect their elected positions.


  13. Allen Sutton says:

    It is most grievous that the nation is in a state of political civil war, and we find ourselves confronting a liberal-socialist-globalist establishment that is acting to surrender American sovereignty, and change our way of life.

    Fortunately, Almighty God in His grace, has provided us a president who will stand and defend American sovereignty at all costs.

    Thank you you all so much for sharing your expertise and insight. Because of your generosity in taking the time to post many of us will sleep better tonight–in a similar way, over time–I am sure our lives have been extended.

    Election night alone, might have done me in.

    The prayers and general goodness here are an antidote to the malignant poison of the left.
