As we suspected, there is Fake Law as well as Fake News.
The lower federal courts who consistently and in a clearly-biased fashion continuously overturned President Trump’s so-called “travel ban” from dangerous Middle Eastern countries in order to more closely attempt to vet who is allowed into the United States have had their rulings overturned today — Monday — by the US Supreme Court.
Supreme Court allows President Trump’s travel ban to go fully into effect
The Supreme Court is allowing President Donald Trump’s latest travel ban on six Muslim-majority nations to go into effect.
Two of the nine justices — Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor — dissented.
The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen
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, with two dissenting votes, said Monday that the policy can take full effect even as legal challenges against it make their way through the courts. The action suggests the high court could uphold the latest version of the ban that Trump announced in September.
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.
What the American Media Maggots will not, trust me, emphasize is that this was a 7 to 2 ruling, meaning that damned near all jurists ruled in favor of the travel ban.
Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would have left the lower court orders in place.
That means Kennedy, Breyer and Kagan — liberal and swing members — voted in favor of affirming the travel ban. We now know where Ginsburg and Sotomayor side.
Ginsburg was a dissenting vote because it’s what she does. We expect no less. Sotomayor voted as a dissent because she is a supporter of illegals — it’s that simple.
Finally, an indicator that the United States federal judiciary has not gone totally off the rails.
My thanks to the SHR Media Network™ for allowing me to broadcast in their studio and over their air twice weekly, Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as appear on the Sack Heads Radio Show™ each Wednesday evening.
As an aside, because the ™ symbol so annoys my Favorite Troll™ I’ve decided to apply it elsewhere as you can see.
JL Curtis was born in Louisiana in 1951 and was raised in the Ark-La-Tex area. He began his education with guns at age eight with a SAA and a Grandfather that had carried one for ‘work’. He began competitive shooting in the 1970s, an interest he still pursues time permitting. He is a retired Naval Flight Officer, having spent 22 years serving his country, an NRA instructor, a retired engineer in the defense industry, and now a starving author. He lives in North Texas, He currently has two series in work. The Grey Man, a Texas based current fiction series revolving around LEOs and Marines. And the Rimworld Series, started with a short story that was an Amazon Best Seller for five days after its release.
I’ve read Jim’s work, I purchased all of his books (as you can see above) and I believe in his writing. For those who enjoy military/law enforcement-oriented books, Jim’s THE GREY MANseries is highly recommended. For those of a sci-fi bent, Jim’s newest book (the beginning of a series) RIMWORLD: Into The Green will please those of a more realistic science fiction nature. Either way you can’t go wrong with a Jim Curtis book. I’m a reprobate bastard so I like the actual printed books that I can hold in my fetid paws.
You can (heavy sigh) acquire his books on Kindle as well. If you must. Harumph.

It’s the AMERICAN TAXPAYER who is getting boned by the entitled European Elite cock gobblers who DEMAND that you pony up your cash;
The EU proves BZ’s Criminal Axiom is now applicable to Europe: “what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine unless you have the strength to keep it”;
Europe to American Taxpayers: get going. Harder work and more of it;
BZ wants to set up more author interviews in the future to include CJ Box, Brad Thor and perhaps even Joseph Wambaugh, my personal hero from the 1970s;
