After President Trump’s Muslim travel ban was thrice rejected by activist liberal judges, the Supreme Court has finally come to the rescue of sane, legitimate jurisprudence.
The lower court judges’ justification for the rejection of the ban was essentially this: despite the actual language of the legal order, court’s can divine into the order, from a former political candidate’s rhetoric, words and meaning that isn’t actually there.
In short, they argued this: Trump is an anti-Muslim bigot, no matter how legal his order may be. Dissenting on the decision were leftist fellow travelers Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor.
No surprise there.
Put another feather in Trump’s cap for court victories.

Three times this year imbecilic partisan judges struck down an executive order by President Trump restricting immigration from failed states and a state sponsor of terrorism. They used the novel theory that anything a candidate says on the campaign trail can be used in evidence despite existing law and the documentary evidence supporting the decision. We should probably be thankful that Trump wasn’t promising a chicken in every pot or if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. The last round of challenges resulted in this tortuous logic:
“A nationality-based travel ban against eight nations consisting of over 150 million people is unprecedented,” wrote Judge Theodore D. Chuang of the Federal District Court in Maryland. Citing statements from Mr. Trump, some made as a presidential candidate and some more recent, Judge Chuang found that the new proclamation was tainted by religious animus and most likely violated the Constitution’s prohibition of government establishment of religion.
Similarly, Judge Derrick K. Watson of the Federal District Court in Honolulu found that the September proclamation “suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor,” adding that it “plainly discriminates based on nationality” in violation of federal law “and the founding principles of this nation.”
