Ninth 1 – Sphincter 0

In what I consider to be the best win for decent people, since a walking, talking rectum infested 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the Fuhrer’s hateful Muslim ban.  Remarkably, the vote was 3-0, even though one of the judges is a conservative GW Bush appointee.  But will Trump obey the Court?


A federal appeals panel on Thursday unanimously rejected President Trump’s bid to reinstate his ban on travel into the United States from seven largely Muslim nations, a sweeping rebuke of the administration’s claim that the courts have no role as a check on the president.

The three-judge panel, suggesting that the ban did not advance national security, said the administration had shown “no evidence” that anyone from the seven nations — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — had committed terrorist acts in the United States.

The ruling also rejected Mr. Trump’s claim that courts are powerless to review a president’s national security assessments. Judges have a crucial role to play in a constitutional democracy, the court said.

“It is beyond question,” the decision said, “that the federal judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to executive action.”… [emphasis added]

From <NY Times>

Rachel Maddow did a far better job of covering the ruling than any of the several accounts I read.

In all my years of studying politics, I have never seen such extreme incompetence at any level of government anywhere.  Here’s the segment on the PPP poll.

The Fuhrer has a habit of going overboard when spurred on by the deplorable bigots in the Republican base.

If the Fuhrer were to defy the Court, it is likely that Republicans in the House and Senate will keep goose-stepping in lock step, and even if some didn’t, the Fuhrer could defy them too. Where would that leave us?

  1. This is the greatest ruling, by far, that ANY court has handed down! Just to take Drumpf down a peg, it shows him there ARE checks and balances in the US on EVERY branch of the government!!! He doesn't have open season when it comes to running the nation!

  2. You may be tired of all that “winning” Trump promised us.  There’s the 9th Circuit Spanking.  The Yemen Raid Disaster.  Flynn Violating the Logan Act.  Conway Violating the Ethics Laws.  Spicer Violating Common Human Decency … PERIOD!

    So snipe all you want, but the important thing is that Obamacare was repealed on Day One and replaced with a wonderful program, Hillary Clinton is behind bars and the coal mines are reopening.

    Oh, wait …

  3. "In all my years of studying politics, I have never seen such extreme incompetence at any level of government anywhere."

    Yeah.  In all your years of studying politics, you have never seen so many people who have no understanding of basic civics trying to make public policy (and thinking they know better than anyone else).  Not, as you point out, just here, but anywhere.

    Mother Jones interviewed some Constitutional experts as to what constitutes (pun intended) a Constitutional crisis.  You can see the article here.

  4. Love the picture, would a Saguaro fit?

    RM: Yeah, "this is our government now". Kudos on this ruling, and their hard work on this too! Trump has no respect for anyone!!

    RM2: Respect the courts?? No, not Drumpf, he certainly wouldn't. The polls says it all!!! Who would I rather was President? Neither. How about SpongeBobSquarePants? Very telling graph from those that voted for him though..all I can say, is…'WOW'!!

    AWESOME!! video! TRUTH! in pictures and song. Thanks for sharing, Tom.

  5. That song has been haunting me for a while already!

    The courts ought to kick ass, and PISS HIM OFF a few more times!  Shit-spackled muppet fart



  6. Argh – horrid picture – in so many ways!

    Wonderful report by Rachel Maddow – many thanks for that, I listened to the next two too. It would be wonderful if they were held to the rule of law, though they are likely to change that law asap.  God bless and protect those judges who ruled according to the law and not according to political party, and the AG who brought the case. 

    The PPP poll – it is no surprise at all that Trump supporters feel he shouldn't obey the law, as they have never wanted to obey the law in their lives – that is why they voted for him.  God protect us all.


  7. I forgot to mention, has anyone seen this   'And then the Breitbart Lynch Mob Came…'

    A very good and very scary article – what on earth is happening in the world today?!

  8. Up to a point it's rather amusing how the different courts slap Drumpf and his administration down on how little knowledge they have of the constitution and of how law works in America. It is fun to see them berated like the little spoilt schoolboys they are. On the other hand it's really frightening to see the country run by an administration who actually thought they'd get away with it. America should be deeply ashamed that their president and his administration end up before ninth circle federal judges within three weeks after the inauguration and lose their case because of a blatant lack of knowledge of how the country is run and how the constitution works and that judges feel compelled to berate them as if they were children. America is past being the laughing stock with the rest op the world, it has entered the next step of being an embarrassment.

    But the scariest thing is that Drumpf may well refuse to obey the courts and take control of the country like the dictator he is at heart. His hard core followers wouldn't mind if he did and as Drumpf has always interpreted what this (shrinking?) minority says as his mandate by the majority in the reality he lives in, a new defeat in the many court cases that undoubtedly will follow, and with a little push by Bannon, might send him over the edge. Better impeach him now before he does that and and goes ballistic on too many levels.

  9. "If the Fuhrer were to defy the Court, it is likely that Republicans in the House and Senate will keep goose-stepping in lock step, and even if some didn’t, the Fuhrer could defy them too. Where would that leave us?" — With a constitutional crisis, the death of American democracy and the sure ascendancy of Emperor Drumpf.

    Rachel is correct, Drumpfenfarten and his administration are the most incompetent bunch of twits.  That is scary with the inherent power in Drumpfenfarten's hands.



  10. Thanks and hugs to all!
