Supremes dismisses Travel Ban case

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court dismissed a major challenge to President Trump’s travel ban on majority-Muslim countries Tuesday because it has been replaced by a new version, sending the controversy back to the starting block.

The ruling is a victory for the Trump administration, which had asked the court to drop the case after Trump signed a proclamation Sept. 24 that replaced the temporary travel ban on six nations with a new, indefinite ban affecting eight countries. That action made the court challenge moot, the justices ruled.

    I just about blew a fuse mis-reading the title.

    Unless im reading this wrong. Im tired been a long week already. So in effect the travel ban is still in place. All he did was change the rules and keep the courts tied up by law. He can do this for many years. But the law still stands.

      What the Supremes affirmed was that the President has the right to effect immigration. Basically, our current president, President Donald J. Trump, has the same right to modify requirements and ban immigration than, oh, say Barack the Majic Muslim, Bill “Cigar Boy” Clinton, Jimmy “I never met a Dictator I didn’t like, and oh, I’m proud to be only the second worse president” Carter. All who did the exact thing Trump got yelled at for.

      Supremes say the President has the power to do presidential things. How fucking amazing in these fallen times.

    Only the ‘wise latina’ dissented (with a partial dissent.) Even the Notorious RBG voted to dismiss.


    I’m laughing a lot these days, watching their house of cards fall down.

    This morning I just read that the NFL has caved in and sent a notice to all teams that they should take whatever actions are needed to ensure that all their players stand at attention for the National Anthem. The story was published in the Washington Post, Sweet!

    Have a glorious day my friends.
