Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, December 04, 2017

The Supreme Court is allowing the Trump administration to fully enforce a ban on travel to the United States by residents of six mostly Muslim countries. The justices say in an order Monday that the policy can take full effect even as legal challenges against it make their way through the courts. The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. Lower courts had said people from those nations with a claim of a "bona fide" relationship with someone in the United States could not be kept out of the country. Grandparents, cousins and other relatives were among those courts said could not be excluded. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would have left the lower court orders in place.

This wasn't a total shock, but what is surprising is that Kagan and Breyer voted to uphold the Travel Ban.

No patriot cares what the partisan court of the United States says right now. Until the sentient scab resigns or is impeached, the court is a total joke.

With only two dissenting it just shows how wrong and politically motivated the local judges are.

People who are this wrong should be removed.

You're aware, are you not, well probably not, that this ruling is about a stay pending appeal not whether the decision on the merits was right or wrong.

The reason federal judges have life tenure is to protect them from ignorant politically motivated animus exhibited by you and the post before yours.

This is why I voted for Trump. I could care less about what he does in office, as long as he puts in conservative judges to stop you liberals.

Everyone knows Trump has the right to ban these countries while they are a threat. You liberals are just paying politics with everyone's safety.

Yes. This ruling allows the US Gov to implement the increased vetting while the other challenges make their way through the courts.

However, the fact that they allow it to continue *and* that there were only two judges who dissented should be an indication of where the court is on this.

These judges who act on their emotions rather than the law and get things so wrong should be removed.

"These judges who act on their emotions rather than the law and get things so wrong should be removed."

SAWDUST wants all these right wing judges removed? Who knew?

BTW, with this Muslim ban in place I feel so much safer already. Riiiight!!! Probably a right wing Christian ban would insure our safety better.

The posts above demonstrate that the right in America is fundamentally opposed to our Constitution.

Which one of the countries on the ban list is a threat?

Seriously. Enlighten me Bozo.

The only Middle Eastern nation to have regularly carried out attacks against America and Americans is Saudi Arabia. Are they on the list too?

No??

Then this has nothing to do with countries which threaten us.

RamBozo. Tough guy internet persona. Scared of his shadow in real life.

"Then this has nothing to do with countries which threaten us."

Then what's it about?

And what expert information do you have on those countries?

I don't see the point of the ban but I don't have intel reports on those countries either.

I know the nation which carries out the most terror attacks against America is Saudi Arabia.

Any ban list which doesn't include them isn't about our nation's safety.

As to what it's really about. I don't know. Appeasing his base?

Someone told me it has to do with their banking system. Not sure.

I was mainly responding to Boaz's assertion that these countries are a threat. And I asked a very straight forward question, "which one of these countries is a threat."

exactly

How are those countries a threat to everyone's safety? There have been no attacks on American soil by terrorists from any of those countries. And Chad is apparently on the list mostly because of a paper shortage in that country.
