Donald Trump will not appeal travel ban suit to the Supreme Court, will issue new orders next week

February 10, 2017

 It is now being reported in this story that Donald Trump will not appeal the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal decision which upheld the temporary restraining order on the President’s travel ban. Here is more:

The Trump administration is not currently planning to appeal a temporary hold on his travel ban to the Supreme Court, a White House official said Friday.

But the White House said it will forge ahead on the broader battle against a lawsuit challenging the executive order.

The administration plans to continue its defense of the order on the merits, which is playing out in a Seattle-based federal district court, the official said.

  Donald Trump has apparently decided to defend the travel ban in the Seattle court case instead. With the Supreme Court likely to tie on the issue 4-4 the restraining order would have remained in place while the lawsuit played out anyway so this seems like the proper way to go–why waste more time on a battle which does not seem to be winnable?

    Donald Trump also announced today that he would be issuing new orders next week on national security, here is more on that:

“We are going to keep our country safe. We are going to do whatever is necessary to keep our country safe. We had a decision which we think we will be very successful with. It shouldn’t have taken this much time because safety is a primary reason, one of the reasons I’m standing here today, the security of our country, the voters felt that I would give it the best security. So we’ll be doing something very rapidly, having to do with additional security for our country. You’ll be seeing that sometime next week. In addition, we will continue to go through the court process, and ultimately I have no doubt that we’ll win that particular case.”

  Now that Jeff Sessions has finally been confirmed as the Attorney General after the obstructionist Democrats failed to stop him perhaps these orders will be better crafted and much harder to challenge on a legal basis.

    I think Trump will change direction now that the Democrats have basically shoot themselves in the head. There is no need to appeal. The Democrats have willing jumped into the fire. Any terrorist attack committed now will be hung around Sen. Chuck’s neck. Gorsuch nomination is now golden.

    A writer explained Trump’s move are analogous to playing chess. The author had the experience of being coached by a chess master in order for him to teach chess to kids. The coach relayed that a good chess player is always on offense and makes the other player react. The good player also never plays the same piece twice. Trump has been doing the same thing. He is constantly attacking, but he often changes his attack.

      I think you are spot on, the Democrats have exposed themselves and now if anything happens it is on them. This was one of the reasons Trump was elected, people didn’t trust Hillary on national security and now the Dems have shown none of them can be trusted.

    It may be best for Trump to have Gorsuch on the bench before going down the ban road again. That is assuming Roberts is no longer being blackmailed.

    I also think that we need to get Gorsuch in place before too much more is done. I am thankful that AG Sessions is finally able to do what needed to be done all along and that is to ENFORCE the laws alread on the books. What a novel idea! I think I see the plans, to draw out what is really going on and expose it. At first it appeared that Trump was jumping the gun, but after watching it for awhile, I really think this was his plan all along. He has something that is being focused on while he does other work to actually get done what he wants…you know, the “watch what the other hand is doing”, but in our favor, finally. I believe most of the left think he is not skilled in being a politician and truth be told that might be one of his most solid attributes, at this point. He has most of his Administration in place now, so after taking out the scum that has been left over in the State Department, he might finally be getting a handle of taking care of America. TRex, as I heard him called, will deal with the vipers pit that Obama put in place there. There will always be the left that is attacking him and the unfairness of what he is doing, but bottom line, he cares what happens here. We have to understand that we are all going to be called names, but they really cannot hurt us anymore, they have no power left. He has laid more attacks on American soil squarely at the feet of the liberal judges, as it should be….they are ruling, but not with the Constitution in mind….maybe being paid off by Soros? Seems alot of people have that same thing in common. Trump is not one to underestimated.

      Maybe if Sessions was in place this would have been rolled out better but of course the Democrats had to delay his confirmation.
