Judge blocks Trump’s revised travel ban

A federal judge in Hawaii has placed a nationwide block on President Trump’s revised travel order, delivering a major blow to the president’s policy just hours before it was set to go into effect.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson, a President Obama appointee, ruled after a hearing on Wednesday that the plaintiffs, the state of Hawaii and a Muslim leader, showed a “strong” likelihood to succeed in their lawsuit against the ban. They argue that the policy violates the Establishment Clause and proved that “irreparable harm” is likely if temporary relief is not granted.

    We need to find a way to start removing these judges from office, and hopefully prosecuting them for malfeasance.
    A republic with one branch having veto power over the other two branches cannot stand for long.
    The cold civil-war is getting warmer.

    • It will be a long process.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Possibly. I hope not

          Long process short process, either way a very large snowball is picking up speed downhill and i think it’s too big to stop now.

        almost impossible to get them out. But if the US has a
        Jihadi attack these phony hacks may be answering
        to a different set of papers.. like treason, aiding & abetting.
        lets see how they deal with the hangman’s noose ..

        so look for the next muslim attack to be buried 5 minutes after it happens.

      • Uphill battle all the way. This is mano y mano combat.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      President Trump is using this to smoke them out.

  • Starlord

    I guess this is expected. No matter what he does they will throw hissy fits.

    It’s like the zombie ban of 72, fuckers were eating our people. Prez implemented a travel ban on countries highly susceptible to zombism. Same thing the judge said it was a zombie ban because those countries were 90.7 and 98.6 percent zombie. It was blocked

    So they came and decimated us.

  • J. C.

    I don’t understand how these judges can legally block the order when it’s not un-Constitutional nor without precedent…???

    • Trump will likely win on appeal.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        He absolutely will win on appeal to the Supreme Court, but that will take 3-6 months.
        No, we need a more permanent solution to our run-away judiciary problem.
        Congress needs to remove these bastard judges en-mass, and then the 9th circuit/district needs to be dismantled and reconstructed into a few different judicial districts to put a permanent stop to this nonsense of judge shopping.

          I’m with ya brother ..

    Hold on a moment, we keep hearing FROM muslims that they are the largest groups of victims by radical muslims terrorism. Now they oppose wanting to screen people from those 6 nation that the UN declared a Terrorism exporting Countries???

    When the Sunni and Shia muslims start to bomb each others Mosques in the USA, they will blame trump for not screening muslims that are coming in . This is what CAIR did after 9/11 when they said the USA didn’t screen these muslims males coming in. But when the USA screened Maher Arar in 2002 at the JFK Airport when he deplaned a Flight from Tunisia by himself as a young male Sunni muslim from Syria with a canadian Passport and was refused him entry as CAIR advised ……we saw Sheema Khan get the Lawyers link to CAIR that help Arar in the $400,000,000.00 Extortion lawsuit for alleged harm in his Homeland of Syria.
    A Syrian is a Syrian is a Syrian according to Justin , so why did muslims want Canada to bail him out from a Military trial as a Draft-dodger nabbed in JORDAN???

    We now see the true face of muslms and the Imams that DON’T reject armed Jihad to fight for the global caliphate. They want more muslims to invade the USA and out breed the population s the do Jihad terrorism to kill Americans .
    The quran allows muslims to LIE .

  • Starlord

    Maybe I’m heartless. But I don’t give a fuck about any of those countries or the people from it. They are stupid wondering why their countries are shitholes, it’s the Islam idiots.

    It’s the secret ingredient for making thing s shitty.

    • J. C.

      Agreed. Islam is a scourge and needs to be eradicated from existence.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Their countries are hell holes because THEIR OWN PEOPLE made them hell holes.
      We owe them nothing and should never let another one into this country.

    Trump’s Nashville rally just ended and he was really good today.
    ‘Mentioned liquidation of the 9th Circuit.

      Stay unhinged, lefties. You’re making this effortless.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        You know, I still have this fantasy that Trump turns out to be every bit the Nazi that the lefts says he is and that he really DOES gas them all and right-wing death-squads in Stahlhelm helmets armed with Lugers and MP-40s are combing the country looking for dissenters while demanding “papers”.

        • J. C.

          Compared to today’s leftists, Hitler was relatively sane… 🙁

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Relatively, you know, except for a few personality “quirks”.

          • J. C.

            At least he had a goal (as nutty as it was)… Modern leftists seem to only want chaos for chaos’ sake!

            Their puppetmasters on the other hand… Well, we know what their goal is…

  • MarkK

    Since the ban was a 90 delay to devise vetting procedures, the way around the impasse is to toughen up the vetting immediately. Suggestions, medically check ages, fingerprinting, check Facebook and social media postings, cellphones, text messages, photos, home country documents, criminal records, employment skills and proof of means of support. That alone could probably block 95% of people from these failed states.

  • Brett_McS

    Reverse the onus of proof. Make potential immigrants prove that they are suitable.

  • JPfromtheeast

    What a pathetic “judge”. Shows how in the bag he is considering that a grade school student actually taught the constitution would have legal standing to overturn this insanity!

    Hell! I am Canadian and I am pretty sure I could run circles around a good 50% or more of the US adult population. (And most people from Ontario, Quebec, the Maritimes and Vancouver 🙂 )

    Our populations have been so severely dumbed down that it is now a clear and present danger to both the citizenry and the longevity of our nations. Scary stuff…

  • Of course he does.
