Oh, the winning… it’s often too funny. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is now independently, on its own impetus, requesting an internal vote on a full panel en banc hearing to review its own decision.
the full ninth are asking the Trump administration to file an
additional brief telling the court why the three member original appeals
ruling authority was wrong. In essence, the smart judges know what wasn’t considered, and are now looking for an out.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
Prior to expanding the conversation, allow us to set the current stage with a few tweet optics:
wha… huh? Yes, that’s the 9th circuit requesting its own judicial
membership ruling to be reviewed by the entire larger 9th circuit
appeals court panel. Ya think maybe they recognize they just jumped head-first into showcasing their own insufferable moonbattery…
Meanwhile, President Trump is saying he has no intentions to challenge the crazy:
It’s a classic representative example of ‘be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it‘.
Currently, thanks to the ridiculous political judicial opinion of
the 9th Circuit, the entire professional left and Democrat party are on
display trying to block President Trump from protecting the American
people. As a direct consequence they own any negative outcomes,
including any act of terrorism, that might happen in the next several
Why would President Trump remove that political liability? If he’s smart, and he’s proven he is way beyond smart, he won’t.
the scenes, and unrelated to the judicial ruling, President Trump can
use his cabinet team to construct immigration and visa review policy
that accomplishes the security goal. The Attorney General (Sessions),
DHS (Kelly) and State Department (T-Rex) can execute departmental policy
objectives under existing legal authority.
Trump never really needed the majority parts of the executive order to
carry out the security agenda. However, using the XO provided a highly
public approach toward showing the American electorate he was fulfilling
a campaign security promise. Tightening the visa approval process and
executing “extreme vetting” doesn’t require anything except a policy and
President Trump does nothing, the underlying challenges to the
Executive Order continue forward in the courts, while he gets his SCOTUS
pick -Gorsuch- on the bench. If he so chooses, the DOJ can eventually
bring the case to the Supreme Court, where almost everyone admits the
Ninth Circuit and Judge Robarts decision will be overturned and all of
the protestation from the left will have been for naught.
the interim of the slow case proceeding, ANY instance of violence and
terrorism provides President Trump the opportunity to use his bully
pulpit -and Twitter- to hang the occurrence, foreign or domestic, like a
millstone around the neck of Democrats up for elected office in 2018.
is no downside on the domestic security agenda for President Trump;
however, the Democrats are fraught with fear that something might just
happen. Ultimately, THIS, the politics behind the entire construct, is
the reason for the ninth circuit tonight asking for an en banc hearing
of their own judicial ruling.
