"Fear is the foundation of most governments." - John Adams

"Despite the constant negative press covfefe" - Donald Trump


The US Supreme Court has ruled President Donald Trump's travel ban on six mainly Muslim countries can go fully into effect.
Seven of the nine justices granted the administration's request to lift injunctions imposed by lower courts.
But the directive against travellers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen still faces legal challenges.
The ruling covers the third version of President Trump's controversial policy that he has issued since taking office.
The presidential proclamation also imposed restrictions on travellers from North Korea and some Venezuelan government officials.
Those provisions have already been approved by lower courts.
In striking down the other parts, lower court judges had cited Mr Trump's campaign description of his policy as a "Muslim ban".
Further arguments will be heard this week by federal courts in San Francisco, California, and Richmond, Virginia.
In June, the Supreme Court allowed an earlier version of the ban to take partial effect.
In the same ruling, the justices approved the Trump administration's 120-day ban on all refugees entering the US, except for those with a "bona fide" US connection.

As expected. The first couple versions of the order were chalk full of constitutional issues, but they eventually pushed one that didn't exceed constitutional authority (as has been established over the centuries, at least.)

Clarification:

The injunctions were lifted while litigations are taking place. Whether or not the Muslim ban is legal or not still has to be decided on.

Unfortunate regardless.

I don't think supreme court ruled on the first two bans, but merely allowed parts to remain in effect in the time it took them to do so.

They did nullify the ruling by the 9th circuit of appeals, however, so it could not be used as a precedent in future challenges.

This has been a good week for Trump though. The tax cuts passing in the Senate fulfills a major campaign goal, and SCOTUS keeps tossing out challenges to the travel ban.

I hope you will be preaching it when the depression 2.0 happens.

Not just a win for Trump, but a win for everybody in the 10th percentile of America.

The rest of us lose, big time. The Republican tax plan just fucked America.
