Federal judge temporarily blocks Donald Trump's Muslim ban. Trump throws Twitter fit over it.

Courtesy of Politico: 

President Donald Trump's travel ban executive order suffered its most severe legal blow to date Friday, as a federal judge in Seattle blocked the impact of the directive nationwide. 

U.S. District Court Judge James Robart ruled in favor of the attorneys general of Washington state and Minnesota on a lawsuit they brought seeking to overturn the order limiting travel to the U.S. by citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries. 

The ruling prompted a typically combative reaction from the Trump White House Friday night, but in a departure from recent patterns, the most confrontational language was quickly dialed back. 

"At the earliest possible time, the Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this outrageous order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate," White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a written statement. "The president’s order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people." 

Spicer's statement was reissued about 10 minutes later to remove the word "outrageous." 

Yes well maybe they can go back and edit the White House Press Secretary's statement, but nobody edits Donald Trump.
And which Middle Eastern countries would those be Donnie? Countries hoping to NOT be added to the ban perhaps?
For the record this "co-called judge" was appointed by George W. Bush.

And his ruling does NOT take law enforcement away from our country, however it DOES protect our Constitution.

As we know Trump really, really hates being told no.

Which is too bad really since it appears that he is going to be hearing a whole lot of no for the next four years.

    Donald Trump’s disastrous Yemen raid may have been attempt at getting Dubai golf course built

    ...Considering that Donald Trump’s decision to speedrocket the Yemen raid was inexplicable in terms of its long odds of succeeding and small gain for the United States, it must now be investigated as to whether Trump greenlit the operation as a favor to the United Arab Emirates in an attempt at getting his years-in-the-making Dubai golf course fast tracked by the UAE government. Trump’s decision to move forward with the Yemen raid was at best criminally negligent — and it may have simply been a criminal act.

    We’ll leave it to you to make sense of Spicer’s rambling, which seems rather clearly posted at the behest of a berserk Donald Trump, whose aides are likely holding him back from his own Twitter account as we speak. But the bottom line is that Trump is losing this Constitutional fight and he knows it.

    Bookies: odds of Donald Trump’s impeachment have skyrocketed over the past two weeks

    ...Just prior to Donald Trump taking office, the odds of his impeachment were pegged at four to one. But over the past two weeks, those odds have spiked according to online gambling website Paddy Power. The betting odds on Trump getting impeached are now two to one, making it far more likely than before he took office. Even with a Republican majority in the House of Representatives, Trump’s impeachment will be entirely a factor of how toxically unpopular he becomes, and the point at which House Republicans conclude they must begin impeachment hearings in order to save face and preserve their own chances of reelection in 2018. And these past two weeks have strongly upped the ante.

    https://www.palmerreport.com/politics/bookies-odds-of-donald-trumps-impeachment-have-skyrocketed-over-the-past-two-weeks/1346/

    Gamblers will bet on anything—and they're having a field day with President Donald Trump.

    The odds are now 2:1 that the 45th president will be impeached before the end of his first term, the online betting site Paddy Power reports. Before his inauguration, those odds were 4:1.

    Rep. Joaquin Castro: House will impeach Donald Trump for ordering agents to defy court

    ...There are two key factors at play here. One is that impeachment does not equal removal. Impeachment hearings can be dragged out for a year or more in the House, and can be used to prevent a president from being able to accomplish much of his own agenda in the mean time. Whether or not the Senate subsequently moves forward with an impeachment trial, and whether or not that president is removed from office, may be secondary. So impeachment is not necessarily about swapping Trump for VP Mike Pence in the oval office; it’s more about crippling Trump.

    Steve Bannon hires two racist Breitbart writers for White House policy positions

    With each passing day it becomes more clear that Steve Bannon is now running the White House and Donald Trump is just sort of there. Bannon is now on the National Security Council, while Trump doesn’t even bother to show up to the Situation Room during military operations.

      7:39, I can spot two reasons right up front for it NOT being done. One, the repubes haven't reached their limit yet, and two, they don't really WANT to impeach - yet.

      Yes, there are definitely things he should be impeached for (even if the trial doesn't happen), the repubes don't WANT to do it, as I said. And before some troll jumps in and asks me "such as", the order to ignore federal courts should be enough.

      He needs to get this major point (among others) branded into his brain: This is a country of LAWS and the Justice department does NOT interpret laws, it's supposed to enforce them.

    ...U.S. District Court Judge James Robart, the judge Trump insulted playground style, was appointed by George W. Bush and confirmed 99-0. The American Bar Association rated this “so-called” judge “Unanimously Well Qualified” for the nomination.

    This is the rule of law in action. It’s called a co-equal branch of government, part of our checks and balances.

    But not for Donald Trump. The self-described “law and order” candidate and now president doesn’t think laws apply to him. He’s special, you see. If a judge doesn’t see things his way, and by his way he means an inept, bungled expansion of the executive office powers that would embarrass even W., then Trump responds by questioning the judge’s authority.

    enate Democratic Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) showed President Trump that there would be consequences for his outburst against the judge who temporarily halted Trump’s ban. Schumer said that Trump’s behavior had lifted the bar even higher for confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee.

    Schumer reacted to Trump’s outburst against Judge James Robart in a statement:

    The President’s attack on Judge James Robart, a Bush appointee who passed with 99 votes, shows a disdain for an independent judiciary that doesn’t always bend to his wishes and a continued lack of respect for the Constitution, making it more important that the Supreme Court serve as an independent check on the administration.

    With each action testing the Constitution, and each personal attack on a judge, President Trump raises the bar even higher for Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to serve on the Supreme Court. His ability to be an independent check will be front and center throughout the confirmation process.

    Senate Democrats are sending a message to the Commander In Chief. If the President is going to insist on acting like a child, he will be treated like a child.

    Though entirely predictable, Trump’s reaction here is highly problematic. He is clearly unraveling at the protests and criticisms against him, and having actual judges rule against him is just too much. What will be really interesting to see is whether or not Trump tries to see how he can remove this judge, just as he did with the Acting Attorney General who said that his Muslim ban was indefensible in court.

    State Dept. Reverses Revocation Of Visas After Judge Blocks Travel Ban

    After a federal judge on Friday blocked President Donald Trump's order suspending the refugee program and barring travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries, the State Department on Saturday said it would reinstate visas that were revoked due to Trump's order, according to the Associated Press.

    The State Department said it took steps to reverse the cancellation of visas after the Justice Department communicated with them about the judge's ruling on Friday, per AP.

    Earlier on Friday, the State Department said it had revoked fewer than 60,000 visas due to Trump's order. However, a government attorney disclosed that the department had revoked 100,000 visas due to the travel ban. The State Department said that the attorney's higher number likely included exempt visa holders like "diplomatic and other visas that were actually exempted by the travel ban."

    The Department of Homeland Security also said Saturday that it had suspended all efforts to enforce Trump's executive order due to the federal judge's ruling......

    Well, but he is appointing another a$$hole to be the boss of the DOJ, so they probably WILL invalidate the judge's ruling. And that judge better check for another job somewhere else... :(

      Sorry, 8:27, the Justice Department doesn't have the authority to invalidate ANY judge's ruling. They can challenge something in court, but they can't CHANGE a law or an order. Well, legally anyway.

      Their own mission statement says it all: "To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans."

      I suppose I should add here that Humpty Trumpty will try to change that mission. In fact, has already tried. And is in the process of trying.

      Yes, the DOJ can only send their attorneys to argue their side.

      The way things have been going so far, they are not prepared.

      Unfair is not a legal defense :)

    Hundreds To ‘Moon’ Trump Tower In This Amazing Act Of Defiance (DETAILS)

    ...“Chicago Moons Trump Tower” is rather unconventional attempt at pressuring President Trump to releasing his tax returns.

    Yes, you read that right. Protesters will drop their pants in front of Chicago’s Trump Tower in broad daylight.

    The Facebook page for the event, titled “Operation Kiss Our Asses, Release Your Taxes,” describes:

      Amazing! But, I support the action and can hardly wait to see it on TV news!

      At least, it'll provide humor and ridicule to the god forsaken idiot that hides in Trump Towers or the Florida monstrosity!

      Haha, that's fantastic! If I lived there, I do it... or least watch and cheer them on.

      The one glimmer of hope these last two weeks has been the strength of the protests. I've read that there were protests against him in London. Never in my life have I seen a president so reviled and openly disrespected. He deserves every bit of it. And I imagine it hurts him personally, as he loves to be adored. This is one of the most effective things we can do: we make sure he knows that the majority finds him a laughingstock and unworthy of our respect.

    i hope those ACLU lawyers bring a contempt order before the judge. A private citizen who tweeted that crap about the judge on his case certainly would be. Way past time for Americans (yeah, forgotten or otherwise) to hold this SOB accountable.

    Monthly breakfast with 96-year-old ex-neighbor this morning. Huge Christian, this subject came up. "Obama kept Christians out for eight years, now it's Trumps turn." Ohhhh myyyy.....what to say in response that does not belittle her but make her think about WWJD. In the end, she admitted that Trump is no Christian.

    Score one for me.

      I'm sure more and more of the religious throughout our country have determined that Donald Trump is not one of them.

      He is doing the devil's work and they know it! He is in no way a Christian and assuredly doesn't follow their teachings in his deeds of actions!

      The religious christian assholes throughout our country don't give a rat's ass whether trump is a christian or not. As long as he gets rid of the browns and cuts off needy people's food stamps, it's all good to them. Yeah I hate the fucking christians.

    The ruling in Washington followed one by a judge in Boston who refused to extend that court's temporary ban. This could be headed for the Supreme Court soon.

    Related: I wonder if anyone told Trump the machete-carrying terrorist who was stopped at the Louvre was an Egyptian from the UAE, countries that are not included in Trump's travel ban.

    OT?
    " Mitch McConnell wasn’t worried that Republicans were going to confirm the first Democratic nominee in 121 years. McConnell knew that he had, at most, two remaining Republican votes to confirm anyone. Faced with this embarrassing truth, McConnell did the classic version of “inflate the problem” — he pretended that the whole thing was about a made-up, and contradicted, principle: no Supreme Court confirmations in a President’s final year. "
    "confirm that they would have blocked any appointment if Hillary Clinton became President."Since 1895, no Republican has ever provided a vote necessary to confirm a Democratic nominee, and no Republican since has remotely suggested that this unbroken history will change."

      Didn't someone yesterday comment that this is Bannon's plan? To hit us so hard with "new rules" that we give up? It will be one cold day in hell.

  44. This so called judge is simply applying a so called law entrenched in the so called Constitution, which I'm sure the so called President hasn't read.

    What is your Donald "JOHN WAYNE" Trump's track record?

    Your President Trump lost his Muslim Ban

    Your President Trump not only lost his first combat operation, his John Wayne attitude cost the lives of a US Seal, little girl and innocent people.

    There has to be more?
