Supreme Court rules in favor of Trump on immigration

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/5-4-ruling-supreme-court-allows-trump-plan-deny-green-n1124056

This is why I support Trump. We’re one Supreme Court justice away from Supreme-Court-mandated open borders. If Trump loses in November, we could lose the Supreme Court.

I’d like to say that every other country on the planet would deny permanent residency to an immigrant who would need to depend government assistance, but there could be some SJW-infested country in Europe that it allows it, so I can’t say for sure. There’s a lot of insanity in the world of SJWs.

This is not to say that we, as citizens of the United States, should not endeavor to make the world a better place, or that we should ignore suffering outside of our borders. But the world will not be a better place if hordes of immigrants overwhelm us and we become just another dysfunctional country. Instead, we should do what we can to make the countries these people are coming from better so they don’t have to leave. Plus we need to be alert for grifters and slackers who would take advantage of our soft-heartedness.

    Me too. Well, this and the tweeting. But especially the tweeting. I’ll miss it come 2024.

  2. Speaking of grifters/slackers, a half hour ago I came face to face with SF shoplifting culture. I was paying for an item at Walgreen’s when all of a sudden the cashier screamed, “hey!” I was momentarily pissed at her since I hate loud noises and, being something of a misogynist, just assumed she was excited that one of her friends walked in or something. But I look over and some guy in a hoodie is walking out with a bunch of merchandise cradled in both arms. So I tackled him on the sidewalk. White kid. I gotta stop doing stuff like this, since I don’t get Medicare for 2 more years.

      I agree. Risking injury to save a life is one thing. But don’t risk an injury for stuff. It’s not worth it.

    • Why did people stop wearing hats?

      • https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/old-hat-why-the-heady-days-are-over-495010.html

        “Old Hat! Why the heady days are over”

        It was once unthinkable to be seen outside without one. “If you want to get ahead, get a hat,” said the slogan. And so, regardless of class or sex, wearing a hat was simply what one did, ever since … well, ever since the first caveman kept his head dry with a bit of spare animal skin.

        When hat-wearing was at its peak – from the late 19th century until the end of the 1930s – headgear could be seen on everyone, from caps for schoolboys or sailor hats on small girls, to politicians in bowlers or toppers. The humble flat cap, meanwhile, became a symbol for a whole strata of society.

        It was an age in which a gentleman would tip his hat to a passing lady, headgear would be removed during the playing of the National Anthem and a judge caused outrage when he ordered the suffragettes in his courtroom to remove the hatpins from their fashionable Edwardian confections in case they were used as weapons against him.

        But then along came the motor car, which sounded the deathknell for the widespread wearing of hats and the etiquette that accompanied them. Social changes and the rise of the haircut as fashion accessory did the rest. In America, the hatless young President John F Kennedy was credited with hastening the demise of hat-wearing among men. And so began the long-term decline of a once thriving industry….

      • That’s not the question, the question is why they keep wearing ties? At least a hat can protect you from the sun and people do use hats when they are in sunny places, but what the use of a tie?

      • People shower daily now. They used to bathe occasionally, slick their hair down with grease, and cover it up with hats. They also covered the smell with perfume, cigarettes and jackets.

      • Why wear a suit? I don’t mind it in cold weather but most of the world had to adopt this style which is not suitable in hot places. I am very happy that Israel didn’t adopt this stupid idea but I had to wear them when working in other countries and it is just torture. Also, I have seen many people with a jacket but without a tie, it can work with certain styles of jackets

        Indeed. Any formal or professional event that calls for a matching suit demands a tie. No exceptions.

      • Why a professional event calls for a suit? In Israel we don’t wear a suit to professional event and they are still held and everything is fine, funerals, weddings, award shows whatever, you don’t need a suit, it is a social construct that was developed in cold countries.

      • “But you could wear a sportscoat without a tie.”

        Absolutely. A more casual event that still requires a little effort calls for a sport coat. Historically, a sport coat was actually worn for sports and other outdoor activities such as hunting. Obviously, that’s not the case any more. But the sport coat is still worn for less formal activities; especially outdoors. Depending on the event and what else you’re wearing, you can wear a sport coat with or without a tie.

        “it is a social construct that was developed in cold countries.”

        Just as a loin cloth is a social construct that was developed in hot countries. I grew up at about the same latitude as Israel. It regularly topped 105F in the summer but with much higher humidity. And I’ve never been to a wedding or funeral where everyone wasn’t wearing a suit and tie. I’ve never attended a graduation where I didn’t wear a suit and tie, either. And graduations are held in the summer. But one doesn’t wear a suit outside in the summer for very long. A suit is for more formal and professional environments; usually indoors where it’s air conditioned. If the event is held outdoors it will likely call for a sport coat sans tie if it requires a jacket at all.

        It should be pointed out that some suits are made from materials chosen specifically for hot weather, such as linen and cotton. I’ve worn suits that are probably lighter and cooler than what you normally wear. Regardless, the main point of a suit is that one cares enough to make the effort.

    • 1930’s is when my uncle’s parents moved to the NYC from Poland. Anyway, they were Jewish and lost all of their relatives, 63 people total, save one in the Holocaust. That one escaped from Auschwitz twice. He was kind of nutty in his old age by the time my aunt and uncle met him in France, maybe some kind of PTSD. But he did manage to get married and had at least one son who still lives in Paris.

        This is a problem on the right, the anti-semitic fringe. (It’s an increasing problem on the left, partly due to their fond embrace of Islam, but I’ve completely given up on them).

  5. Lion,
    I can’t find anything about what started the precedent of lower courts blocking presidential orders. SCOTUS should be the only court that the president listens to. Did some president in the past cave into a lower court to get this practice started? As we have seen demonstrated, this practice results in chaos. What would be the outcome if Trump stated that he is ignoring all lower court orders?

      • @Daniel Heneghan
        The most important part of Trump’s legacy (whenever he leaves office) will be of having shown that the right doesn’t always have to mindlessly implement watered-down leftist policy in order to try to appease the progressives. Rather he proved that the working class right could be coalesced into a powerful force who’s votes and values matter. Whoever comes into office after Trump, Dem or Republican, will be forced to contend with this new reality.

      • Roli — That’s true. But the Dems, GOPe, deep state, msm, etc also showed that anyone who does so will be relentlessly attacked and undermined. Other politicians won’t want to be attacked when it’s so much easier to just roll over and give in.

        I prefer to believe the world will be a better place, five, ten or twenty years into the future. The possibility of the opposite happening is deeply unnerving. Truth is there will always be assholes among us (for some reason they all seem to be working in the corporate media at the present time), but ultimately you have to believe good will prevail.

  6. After three years in office, SCOTUS finally overturns that lower court knucklehead who blocked the presidential order. So if Trump loses, it will only last one year and the next president will be back to open borders. I actually feel a little ripped off. SCOTUS should have reached down and overturned that lower court decision immediately. In fact, I think there should be major restrictions on a lower court being able to block a presidential order at all.

    • yeah, I tend to agree. SCOTUS should review this stuff pretty much immediately. It is not like they really had to think long and hard to come to this decision. They probably knew what they would do as soon as they heard about it on the news some years ago.

    • Roberts is a traitor (as are Ginsberg, et al) and they all need to be impeached. There really isn’t any way to get around that enforcing real law & order, and return to rule of law demands that these people be removed from office and serve time, badge, black robe, shouldn’t matter.
