Appeals Court body slams Trump Muslim ban 10-3

“The judge said the order “speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination.”

Rudy and his legal hustler gang did not serve Trump well in their attempt to put lipstick on a pig

Editor’s Note: This story got lost in all the Syrian war news and Trump’s foreign tour, where he has tried to take the news focus off his domestic debacle, and with some success. Former Republican Speaker of the House Boehner confirmed this in plain English,“Everything else he’s done (in office) has been a complete disaster,” the Ohio Republican said, according to the Associated Press.

This 10-3 Appeals Court ruling with very strong language has carved in stone that, despite the Rudy Giuliani legal crew’s best efforts to put lipstick on a pig, the court ruled that Trump’s hyped terror threat ploy in no way justified his “Muslim ban”.

In effect, the court was confirming the Jim Dean position that Trump would get caught in his reality tv show style of thinking that he can just script any damn reason he wants to justify something because he is the President.

It is also showing that, rather then having good advisers that talk him out of squandering his presidential credibility, he surrounded himself with panderers and ass-kissers that just stoke the fires for his mistakes.

Trump now has on his record the cheap, disparaging remarks he made about the “liberal judges”, and the damage that has done in all of this future relations with the federal judiciary, in that he was besmirching them all with those comments. Again, better advisers would have told him that his cheap ploy to instantly elevate himself to the “defender of Americans against terrorism” would not work with a hyped threat, and he would end up with a hostile judiciary despite the appointments he has pending.

The risk he took here was totally unnecessary, as the uncontrolled Hispanic immigration problem, especially the gangs, has always been the real terror slaughter going on in America. But because the victims were primarily in that community, it did not rise to a level of national political concern.

As more senior political commentators are beginning to agree, big mistakes like this are due to not only an inexperienced president, but his having surrounded himself with inexperienced people in the White House. Experienced campaign “hustlers” are not a good pool of talent to build a staff out of to run the government.

Because Trump is a hustler himself, he felt he had a mandate to bring more “street smart” hustlers in to drain the swam, but what we are seeing is that they are the swamp. I have to give Trump credit, it was a good hustle. Now we will see if the public punishes him for it, or if they lap it upJim W. Dean ]

A US federal appeals court has refused to reinstate Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban, dealing a fresh blow to the American president’s bid to ban Muslims from several countries.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, said in the 10-3 ruling on Thursday  it “remained unconvinced” that the part of the travel ban naming the six Islamic countries had “more to do with national security than it does with effectuating the president’s promised Muslim ban.”

The court said Trump’s revised travel ban on citizens of Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Sudan discriminated on the basis of religion. Religious discrimination is forbidden by the US Constitution.

It was another setback for President Trump, who saw his previous attempts halted by the federal courts before. The latest decision means the case is likely to end up in the Supreme Court.

Trump signed the executive order in late January, originally placing a 90-day travel ban on people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, and Yemen and a 120-day ban on any refugees.

The court in Richmond said it could not find that the Trump administration’s security concerns outweighed the claimants’ concerns about religious discrimination.

“Congress granted the president broad power to deny entry to aliens, but that power is not absolute,” Chief Judge Roger Gregory said in the ruling. “It cannot go unchecked when, as here, the president wields it through an executive edict that stands to cause irreparable harm to individuals across this nation,” he added.

The judge said the order “speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination.”

According to experts, Trump’s ban on Muslims traveling to America from six Islamic countries is unconstitutional, “making him a traitor to the Constitution of the United States.”

Iraq was removed from the list in a revised version of the ban on March 6, and applied the restriction only to new visa applicants. It also removed an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees.

The court in Richmond said it could not find that the Trump administration’s security concerns outweighed the claimants’ concerns about religious discrimination.

  1. I think those judges who rule against the TEMPORARY HALT to immigration or travel from Muslim countries that are known to have hostile Muslim groups should read some world history starting around the time Islam was created (7th century AD) They would find that Islam was “spread by the sword” and this is why entire nations are Islamic and do not tolerate other religions. Look at what is happening to Coptic Christians in Egypt–one incident after another–all terrorist, all lethal. Isn’t Islam the “state religion” to most of the nations in the Middle East? What does that tell us? That it is intolerant of other religions and is militant about it. Are most of the terrorists not Muslims? What does it take to wake up all the bleeding heart liberals–a hundred incidents like the one that just happened in Manchester, England?

    • Bayleaf, Muslims really had better recruiting method. Anyone who converted did not have to pay taxes. It worked like a dream. Also, the Crusaders had a knack for spreading religion by the sword, but that was really all about conquest, looting, and getting rich. The religion was just a cover for what was really warlord gangsterism. That is why you see jihadi groups fighting and killing each other, as the winner gets control and the revenues of those they lord over.

    • Well, I have to say, you’re terribly ignorant about the true nature of Islam, as are many in the West due to the constant demonisation in the media. Islam tolerates other religions and the deaths of those Copts in Egypt wasn’t about religion, it was about trying to incite a civil war. Islam is also the national religion of countries like Indonesia and Malaysia, not just the middle east and north africa, it is a peaceful religion. Look at Syria, it had a dozen of more ethnic/religious groups that all lived in harmony and tolerance until outside forces started the war there. ISIS itself is not at all Islamic, that is just a cover for a group of mercenaries gathered from all over the world. As for Manchester, that wasn’t about Islam either and the Muslim community in Manchester joined in with everyone else in a show of solidarity – Muslim taxi drivers gave people free rides, Muslim takeaway owners fed the police for free for days.

    • In some place such as Constantinople, the Crusaders butchered Christian and Jews alike,as well as Muslims.
      The Church’s thirst for power and wealth has never actually diminished. Today it still acts as if it controls the world.

  2. Jim Dean was lamenting that modern news papers do not have cartoonists on staff to make fun at Trumps visit to KSA and Israhell. Well here is a short one.
    It shows Trump at the wailing wall talking to a Rabi and he says: impressive wall! how did you grt the Mexicans to build it?

  3. Interesting comment by the Honorable Judge Gregory….”a traitor to the constitution of the United States”. Sounds like an impeachable offense to me. Anyway, it will be interesting if this goes up the justice ladder to the Supreme Court. Which I doubt as the verdict of 10 – 3 is very telling. The 3 judges who ruled in Trumps favor should be analyzed. IQs questioned. This is a simple case. So simple it could not hide behind the favored “national security” defense. Maybe the appeal will be heard, or not heard at all, in secret. sush, everyone sush. Can’t you see we’re busy. Who pays for all this BS?
