    Default US reverses travel ban... and the Trumpsters aren't happy...

    It was always a bit of a botch job the auld Trump banning order... and now the US 'system' seems to have agreed...

    The process of getting into America is already very rigorous... particularly for refugees... taking up to 2 years in some cases...

    Trump's claim that by giving notice of the ban (and implementing it properly) would have seen masses of bad people flooding into America was always a load of the usual Trump BS...

    And so now the ban has been... banned...

    Can't say I'm surprised...

    You know, one of those bad hombres who sneaked in?

    No doubt they won't take this lying down... but they really need to cop themselves on and do the stuff they're trying to do properly...

    "Law and order" types should happy, shouldn't they?

    The "law" bit, like.

    But "law and order" types generally don't like law, do they?

    Didn't that already happen yesterday with the Louvre attacker.

    That's a worrying point of view which didn't occur to me... but is probably valid...

    Given how in awe the base are it wouldn't even have to be a 'legitimate' Daesh attack...

    Any attack could be spun in such a way to fulfil a specific purpose...

    As the impact of the ruling took hold, President Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter early Saturday morning, referring to U.S. District Judge James Robart as "this so-called judge" and calling his decree "ridiculous."

    But isn't this the ideal outcome, from Trump's perspective?

    He can claim he kept his promise, but that the liberal elite screwed him over. This allows him to pander to his base without actually having to enforce the ridiculous travel ban.
    Repeal the 27th.

    Trump doesn't want US cities to become the Muzzie hell holes Western European cities have become.

    This is very good news- a judge made a ruling and the White House complied. Time for the hysterical lefties to calm down.
