Federal Judge Denies Hawaii’s Challenge To President Trump Travel Ban…

More Winning – A federal judge in Hawaii has rejected a motion filed by that state seeking to limit the scope of President Donald Trump’s so-called travel ban, parts of which were cleared to be implemented by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Because Plaintiffs seek clarification of the June 26, 2017 injunction modifications authored by the Supreme Court, clarification should be sought there, not here.”

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson said in a ruling Thursday in Honolulu that the Supreme Court is the proper venue to deal with the issue. (read more)

    • Muslims make up only 0.05% of the population of Hawaii. The percentage of Muslims from the 6 countries which are affected by the ban would be a miniscule number in Hawaii. It was nothing but a liberal attempt to embarass the president from a democrat AG in the state after the Supreme Court allowed the travel ban to go forward.

        It was not a liberal attempt to embarrass the president. It was an attempt to get as many ISIS terrorists into the country as possible before our President put a stop to it.
        Make no mistake, people will die because of that activist judge in Hawaii, and it is exactly what the liberals and the elite want.

          See Deprivation Of Rights Under Color Of Law

          They screwed the pooch on this one. The immigration law is very clear that the President can ban any non-citizen he pleases. Rights Under Color of the Law is also very clear:

          Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.

          For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police officers, prisons guards and other law enforcement officials, as well as judges, care providers in public health facilities, and others who are acting as public officials. It is not necessary that the crime be motivated by animus toward the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin of the victim.

          The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.”

      My own feeling is that the travel ban rulings were the first attempt to impeach President Trump.

That would have caused a constitutional crisis, and he could have been impeached.

      I do believe that it would be good to remove those judges who go beyond their proper reach and rule badly.


    • Bendix says:

      They openly introduced a principle that the motivation mattered more than the law.
      Donald Trump was motivated by “Islamophobia”, which is a state of mind. Obama could do whatever he wanted because his motivations passed the PC purity test.
      We saw this principle in action during the sham Hillary email investigation. Comey managed to read her mind somehow, and deduced no ‘intent’, therefore she was good to go.
      Come to think of it, this was also how Comey “assessed” that the Russians wanted Donald Trump to win and not Hillary, because he again used his special mind-reading powers against Russia (which is a country, how many minds did he have to read to come up with what Russia thinks?) and decided that the Russians hate Hillary so they hacked the election to help Trump. Or something. I get so confused.
      CNN went a step further just the other day and threatened someone they found to be not in compliance with PC mind control.

    Folks the Winning may be on steroids given this incredible news! The SC is everything as this decision shows. Regrettably the left can’t win elections so they have decided to use the courts to pass their social agenda. A year from now their Utopia is going to come crashing down like a cement brick on their heads.


    From the article linked above:

    But it is unlikely that Kennedy will remain on the court for the full four years of the Trump presidency. While he long ago hired his law clerks for the coming term, he has not done so for the following term (beginning Oct. 2018), and has let applicants for those positions know he is considering retirement.

    Kennedy is the swing vote on a pretty evenly divided nine-vote Supreme Court, and replacing him with a more conservative justice would tilt the court further to the right for years or potentially decades to come.

    Replacing Kennedy with a Gorsuch-esque justice would give us five justices that were to Kennedy’s right. And that, according to Andrew D. Martin’s and Keven M. Quinn’s scores of the ideology of Supreme Court justices, would be basically unprecedented.

    They will be praying to Lucifer to have old Ruth hang in there just a while longer. If the Devil decides that his payment has come due over the next two years, you will see hell break loose on Earth. Regrettably there won’t be enough popcorn for that!

    I’m hoping that this so-called ‘travel ban’ can be made…permanent.

    It’s only common sense.
    It prevents the ‘refugee’ status from being exploited and abused, which is what has been going on.

    People seem to have forgotten that a ‘refugee’ is also a temporary status.
    They can be sent back.

    But these so-called ‘refugees’ have been allowed to disperse…and scatter into our general population.
    I think this fact presents us with the perfect reason to Suspend our ‘refugee program’, indefinitely.

    “We don’t know where they all are.”

    And so, because ‘we don’t know where they all are’…we are suspending our refugee program until we can reevaluate it and revise the program to better serve the Security of our country.

    Once ISIS has been wiped out…we can send them back, too.

      As to making the travel ban permanent, I believe that the strategy is to obtain a favorable ruling from SCOTUS on the inherent power of the President to protect the national security. After that, precedent will control and then the orders and bans can be dished out without much that leftist judges can do about it.

    The Founding Fathers knew exactly that making the POTUS our US Commander in Chief was critical to survival. They knew by doing this POTUS would not be restricted (by a legislative body or court) to make rapid decisions in our nations defense preventing anyone coming into the US without notice at anytime. To argue that a General on a Base or Captain of a Ship can’t refuse anyone at anytime for the protection of its forces is dangerously ignorant.

    The present SCOTUS “bona fide” exceptions concept ignores this critical ability of our POTUS to protect the US. Here is a quote from the linked article:

    “Nevertheless, six of the nine justices, at least for now, appear inclined to rule that Americans in these “bona fide relationships” with aliens have not only standing but legal interests sufficiently compelling to block enforcement of presidential orders that address national-security threats.”

Those persons (including court judges) who deny that FACT simply do not understand the law, or the MILITARY LAW aspect, or else they understand fully the law and CHOOSE to defy it or test the principle. By extension, in the event any court would challenge this principle, the POTUS has authority to defy by force any court who would interfere. This is simply one area where no court lawfully can or should dare to interfere, and if they get stupid and do interfere anyway, then the wayward court should get a reality check about where the real ACTUAL authority resides, using federal troops if necessary.

    President Trump is winning LEGALLY. That’s critical. Obama was forcing his crap through and then ignoring the courts for as long as possible when told he couldn’t. I have suspicions that he or his support group were responsible for Scalia’s death… so weird in so many ways and completely unacceptable manner of handing his death. Very suspicious.

    At the end of the day, at the end of the year and at the end of President Trump’s two terms, I believe we will roll back the damage to this country in a big way. It will not be ‘complete’ by any measure because it is UP TO US to roll back the damage to the culture.

    I was thinking the other day about how to affect the culture in a pro-life way and how to encourage more families to grow. One way that occurred to me is by being nicer.

    We are flooded with kitten and puppy pictures and videos all day long. The reason why, I believe, is that while people simply need to love cute things loving BABIES is no longer Politically Correct! Think about it. As a culture, we love kittens and puppies more than human babies?? Seems that way. So what to do?

    When you’re out and about and you see a man or a woman with a baby, just say something nice 🙂 No harm in it and it will likely make people feel happier and love their children all the more. Better still if other strangers are in the area, they may pick up on it as well. We need to make loving babies and raising families GREAT AGAIN.

    Failure to do so will be the continuation of our first-world decline because it is our change in culture which has been destroying us all along.

      We need to ALLOW women to opt out of the work force to have and raise children.

      Several years ago, maybe a decade? I was looking at the US fertility rate. It was 2.01 (replacement rate) IIRC. After eight years of Obummer trashing our economy it is now 1.87.

      Economics has a major impact on how many children a family has.
      Subsistence farm families have a lot of kids because kids are free labor, die and can be sold. Also no contraceptives. Mexicans coming to the USA have more kids than those living in Mexico because of the improvement in their economic situation.
      Mexico = 2.25 fertility rate
      From in the 1990s, Latino population growth was 5.6. In 2007 to 2014, that rate fell to 2.8.
      As economics improve AND the cost of raising a child goes up, the fertility rate goes down. In 2017, the Department of Agriculture says the estimated cost of raising a child from birth through age 17 is $233,610.

      A better explanation Americans have stopped having babies

      However since they are pro-Obummer they think the economy ‘recovered’ under Obummer when it had not.

      I expect to see a surge in the US birth rate as President Trump injects real hope in Flyover Country.
