Trump Prevails

CNBC reports the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled most provisions of President Trump's travel ban on people from six chaotic Muslim nations are reinstated, pending further review by the full court in its fall term. Three conservative justices wrote that there is reason to believe the government will prevail, justifying the reinstatement pending review.
Not one of the stalwart liberals on the Supreme Court, including Justice Ginsburg, Justice Sotomayor, Justice Kagan, and Justice Breyer could bring themselves to agree with any of the lower court rulings enough to even write a dissent to this decision and push for keeping the stays in place. That just shows how far to the left some of the federal courts have become in America.
This is another big win for the President. It is also a poke in the eye for the Ninth Circuit appellate court, which seemingly would feel more at home adjudicating in Venezuela or Sweden.

Afterthought: Mr. President, we haven't gotten tired of winning yet, more will be very welcome.
