Don’t Look Now but the Neil Gorsuch Supreme Court Just Approved Trump’s Muslim Ban
Hello! I’m Mike Sax and I’m running for Congress in the NY2 District. If you agree we need a Democratic Congress to get to the bottom of what happened in Russia Please Donate.

Now let’s get to it:
It’s the best of times and the worst of times. Yes, Michael Flynn just pled out. There’s reason to believe he’s been cooperating since July.
Yesterday Paul Manafort’s bail was denied and Mueller is now setting up a website to keep track of indictments. Still we must use caution: this doesn’t mean we can go to sleep and let Mueller handle it. There is a Congressional role that the GOP is abdicating. We are hearing that Mike Conway plans to end the House Intelligence side of the Russia investigation and has already rushed to judgement and decided that Trump is innocent.
Trump is tweeting a lot of slanderous things about Mueller, Comey, and the FBI right now which makes at least some worry that he’s planning another Saturday Night Massacre-on top of having already fired Comey.
And much as I hate to say it, the Trump agenda is moving now. Which might explain why the GOP is now more keen to defend him than ever.
We have that terrible, awful, bad, very bad no good fake tax reform bill that passed the Senate-though the Senate GOP rushed it so fast they screwed up and accidentally got rid of all corporate loopholes.
And now Trump’s SJC pick Neil Gorsuch just helped him win on his odious Muslim ban. Thank all those Bernie or Busters.
“The US Supreme Court has ruled President Donald Trump’s travel ban on six mainly Muslim countries can go into full effect, pending legal challenges.”
The decision is a boost for Mr Trump’s policy against travellers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.
The ruling covers the third version of the directive that the president has issued since taking office.
Seven of the nine justices lifted injunctions on Monday imposed by lower courts against the policy.
Only liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would have allowed the president’s order to remain blocked.”
What irritates me is the MSM’ insistence on referring to this as Trump’s ‘travel ban.’ He has stated he wants a Muslim ban. Why do we have to always relegate ourselves to his spin?
The progressive Center for Constitutional Rights decried the supreme court ruling in a statement.
“We will not allow this to become the new normal,” the center said. “Whatever the courts say, the Muslim Ban is inhumane and discriminatory. We must continue to demonstrate that we reject and will resist the politics of fear, anti-Muslim racism, and white supremacy.”
“The Trump administration has denied that the ban is discriminatory along religious lines. But the president himself may have undercut that argument, legal analysts said, by tweeting anti-Muslim videos from a British far-right group late last month.”
The takeaway is that we can’t be complacent. So long as he has a GOP Congress don’t have high expectations of what limits they will put on him.
Again we need a Democratic Congress.
P.S. I’m Mike Sax, I’m running for Congress in the NY 2nd District and I’m a Hillary Clinton Democrat.
Meeting her recently was one of the biggest honors in my life to stand next to such a fine public servant and trailblazer. She seemed to like our Impeachment Train campaign t shirts too!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
