  1. This won’t settle the matter. Expect now even more protests to occur at ICE centers, doxxing of ICE agents, protests at airports for turning away people due to the ban, etc. In fact, I think it will get so bad that you will have attempted assassinations of ICE agents by antifa radicals.

    • Also, expect airport protests to shut down flights by stopping people from traveling. You’ll be getting a new level of agitation soon.

  2. As VD says, it’s ridiculous that this was 5-4 and not 9-0. Residents of foreign lands have no FA rights. Even if the policy is actually motivated by ill will toward Islam, it’s entirely constitutional. How strange that in a piece of litigation in which subjective motivation is considered to be relevant, no consideration is given to the motivation of the proponents of muslim (and other) immigration, which is to eventually make whites a minority in the country they founded. Columnists in the NYT and elsewhere openly state this, yet somehow those imprecations don’t become part of any “Brandeis brief” in the Supreme Court.

    • The impression I’m getting is that the majority argued there was no anti muslim bias since the ban applied to some non muslim countries and was ostensibly about a countries ” identity-management and information sharing practices.” I would of much rather had a majority opinion that just said the existence or nonexistence of anti muslim bias is irrelevent because of the unambiguous language of the statue. There should be a permanent ban on muslims (and a bunch of other protected groups) and this decision doesn’t assert that Trump has a power to do that.

      Trump promised a muslim ban, never delivered one, and at this point still doesn’t have the power to implement one.

  3. Pretty awful it wasn’t 9-0. “This particular guy doesn’t have the full powers of the presidency like Obama did or Hillary Clinton would have” shouldn’t be a close-run decision.

    • The real thing is that Muslim fanatics are the true enemies of SWPLs and their moderate Islamic supporters, oh what irony, and Americans are in coma when it comes to the liberal trifecta – NYC, DC and CA. These are the 3 conduits of American power and wealth that extreme Islamicists want to take down.

      No Jihadi group wants to attack Staten Island, Arizona, Alaska or any other prole mecca. American right leaning proles never understood the concept of the enemy of an enemy is a friend, hence they have no allies.

      • Right leaning Whites in America cannot see anything beyond race-based politics to the point that SWPL Whites are their “friends”, despite White liberals wanting to see their demise. Some of the HBD bloggers attribute this to IQ – middling IQ of lower class whites aren’t too different from lower IQ blacks who subscribe to the same rudimentary form of tribal politics.

  8. I bought Douglas Murray’s paperback edition of The Strange Death of Europe today. No hysteria, no emotive language. Just a factual, historical account of how European Muslims are slowly destroying western civilisation, while the political elite and liberal media stay quiet and submit lest they are accused of racism. The Donald may not be everything you would want in a leader, but thank God he’s not May, Merkel or Macron. Without him that SCOTUS ruling would have been 4-5.

        True, but the hilarious yet terrible thing is that liberals believe that they have been the ones playing fairly while conservatives have been waging an unprecedented, underhanded, dirty, winner-take-all, scorched-earth war. There’s currently a thread on the SDMB entitled “Is it time for the dems to fight dirty?” Sample quote: “I don’t know what the answer is. It feels like an Israel/Palestine issue in a lot of ways. The Israelis are trying to play by the rules of the west, and the Palestinians are not. Or any kind of war on terror type war. One side believes in democracy, human rights and liberal values. The other side believes in theocracy, dictatorship and human shields. “

    • The US had five decades of people as bad as May, Merkel, and Macron. Plus all the early presidents that allowed the black population to swell to a size larger by percentage than the muslim population in just about every western and northern european country. So we started out worse off than Europe is today 50 years ago with the black population and have only gotten worse since then. The US has not only much worse demographics than Europe but also a political culture so used to dismissing legitimate calls for reform from the people as racist and communist, and so a much worse chance of reforming things for the better. Trump, the supposed proof of American superiority, hasn’t made a dent in the situation so far. There’s a populist wave surging in Europe that will probably deal with the situation. Just like Europe, and not the US, has a tradition of using the government in sensible ways to fix problems.

      There’s something about this, oh Europe is so terrible that appeals to all the idiots on here. I’ve never seen the argument presented in an even halfway intelligent way. It drives me absolutely crazy every time I see it.

      • The American body politic is flexible and adaptable enough to keep functioning even with a President as unorthodox as Trump. I doubt very much France could elect someone like Marine Pen and still be able to function. European democracies have a much greater command structure and are very sclerotic by comparison. Even if LePen ever managed to get elected, France would probably tear itself apart in a new revolution.

        Have you seen the British TV series “Yes, Minister”?

        Have you heard the stories about the EU Bureaucracy?

        Or was that sarcasm?

        Note that the parts of Europe not “so terrible” these days are generally those that have resisted the Muslim invasion – Poland, Hungary etc.

        Difficult to “make a difference” when you need 60 Senate votes and have only 50. That may be resolved in November.

  9. The strife-ridden sixties were well before my time, but it’s like we’re living it all over again. With this latest salvo, Trump just upped the ante and I fully expect the social justice types to explode with rage. Living just across from the border in Canada, we get to experience the US through our TV and tablet screens, pressed against the window looking in—it’s said that 90% of Canadians live within a hundred miles of the US border. Recently, a French tourist visiting Canada was jogging in a Vancouver municipality and accidentally crossed into the US. She was apprehended by US border services and held in prison for two weeks, before being released.

  10. Thank God for Gorsuch, all I can say. Sotomayor/Ginsburg dissent is ridiculous, they skip the laws and just go for ‘hey, Trump said something about a ban on Muslims ergo obviously all his consequential actions have anti-muslim bias’. With court being 2/7 = ~30% weighted towards emotional decision-making, this country needs all help it can get.

  11. Of course the Supreme Court agrees with the travel ban, the court is stacked in an more conservative manner, and frankly, Trump did not do a ban on all Muslim countries, just some. I believe North Korea was on the travel-ban list as well.

    Does this mean Trump can just suspend amnesty claims from south america?

  16. I like it only because it greatly upsets liberals. Overall it’s too weak and limited. What are there like 5 countries on the list? They aren’t even the right countries. I am not worried about Venezuelans or even Iranians. Saudis are by far the country that produces the most terrorists (including 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists). Unless Saudi and other Sunni Muslim countries are on the list this travel ban won’t make much of a difference.

  18. Good news. A half crazy, socialist Latina has defeated Rep. Joseph Crowley – a tired, old, libtard, Irish hack – in the Democrat primary for New York’s 14th district. Crowley is a big shot in the Democrat party. His name had even been bandied about as a possible successor to Pelosi. Ha!

    The Latina will certainly win the November election and she can join Maxine Waters in a growing caucus of unhinged coloreds in the Congress. And this is just and proper. Tired old white hacks like Crowley, Schumer, Pelosi, et. al. are standing in the way of the just desires of vibrant people of color to lead themselves, (and our country to ruin,) thwarting their aspirations for leadership and control. Can we say RACIST.

    Alas, the Republicans are too stupid to notice this hundred dollar bill lying right in front of them, as we see Ryan – with one foot out the door, ready to step into his million+/year lobbying sinecure – desperately trying to pull a fast one on Trump with a proposal for 1 million, low wage, “temporary” workers. Let’s stir up trouble.
