The U.S. Supreme Court handed a major victory to the Trump administration Tuesday. The justices rejected a challenge to President Trump’s September 2017 travel moratorium –- referred to by the leftist media as a “travel ban” -– temporarily restricting immigration to the United States by citizens from the countries, of Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and government officials from Venezuela — placing national security concerns ahead of political correctness.
Jeff Flake, who opted out of running for a second senate term due to his abysmal 18% approval rating, goes apoplectic whenever President Trump scores a victory.
Spinning the bogus rhetoric of the radical left, open borders supporter Flake would have us believe the High Court instituted a Muslim ban.
“It is constitutional, it’s just not very wise,” he said. “It was certainly targeted at Muslim countries. We don’t win the war on terrorism by making this a religious test. So I just don’t think it helps that way.”
Who knew Venezuela and North Korea were Muslim countries?
This case is among the court’s most important this term and the latest in a string of 5-4 decisions in which the conservative side of the court prevailed, bolstered by the addition of Justice Neil Gorsuch last year.
Despite Jeff Flake doing Barack Obama’s bidding in 2016, escorting liberal Democrat Merrick Garland to meetings with key senators attempting to garner votes for his confirmation, Obama’s attempt at a lame duck Supreme Court appointment was derailed. Newly elected President Donald Trump appointed Appellate Judge Gorsuch to fill the seat left vacant by the unexpected death of conservative icon Justice Antonin Scalia.
If Republicrat Jeff Flake had gotten his way, the dramatic leftward lurch of the Supreme Court, would have had irreversible, long range negative consequences.
Here is the non-too-bright, perpetually grinning Flake making a mockery (brief video) of the judicial nomination process.
We have the opportunity to replace inept RINO Flake by sending principled conservative Dr. Kelli Ward to the U.S. Senate. Your donations will help her stay competitive against the out-of-state and lobbyist money funding her Primary Election opponent Martha McSally — frequently referred to on this site as Sally McCain — and General Election opponent, radical Leftist Kyrsten Sinema.
