Trump Responds: "Unanimous Supreme Court Decision A Clear Victory For Our National Security"

Tyler Durden's picture

Many have been waiting with bated breath all morning for Trump's response on the Supreme Court's decision regarding his travel ban.  While we expected that response would come in the form of a snarky tweet, it has unfortunately been revealed via a more carefully crafted official statement.


Here is the full text:

Statement from President Donald J. Trump


Today's unanimous Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security. It allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective.


As President, I cannot allow people into our country who want to do us harm. I want people who can love the United States and all of its citizens, and who will be hardworking and productive.


My number one responsibility as Commander in Chief is to keep the American people safe. Today's ruling allows me to use an important tool for protecting our Nation's homeland. I am also particularly gratified that the Supreme Court's decision was 9-0.

Of course, we're sure that today's ruling is also "particularly gratifying" for the Trump administration in light of their previous accusations that rulings by the 9th district court in San Francisco were politically motivated.

Censure and suspend the 9th justices. No more activism from the bench. Time to make examples of those who use their power for SJW activism at expense of fully established legal doctrine.

I am happy about this, No more illegal immigration, No more "benefits" for non-citizens. I would put that in my pipe and smoke it but I am afraid the AG would lock me up.

How to impeach a federal judge:


"The United States Senate has removed judges from office for substantial questionable conduct, even if no crime was committed. For example, Judge Robert Wodrow Archbald was impeached and removed from office for improper business relationships with litigants. One reason for this may be the life tenure bestowed upon federal judges and the Congress' place in upholding the good behavior of judges."


Probably a good idea to impose term limits as well...

Great 120 days after the 120 day ban, we get a 120 day ban ... so nowwww just all of a sudden they can do something? They'll just start working on vetting techniques and all the shit they were 'going to do' during the time the ban was to be in place because they've their political victory?


All talk no action

All talk and no action? Refugee intake in down by 50% since Trump took office and now with the travel ban in place that number will fall further, something your dumb ass cannot assimilate, so please, continue to be cannon fodder on ZH... You and your link posting snoids are a persistent reminder of just how fucked up some people are...

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do...

And the 9th Circuit is not embarassed in the least--just looking forward to their next intrusion into ideological law making.

The 9th Circus judges are already wearing black and carry a hammer (gavel); so all they need to do is put on a face mask and they'll fit in perfectly with antifa!

Keyser's picture

Let's eee how smug the judges in the 9th circuit are when they start getting pink slips, or better yet, federal investigations into their collusion with Obozo...

The ninth was formed when there were few poeple lived out West which is why they have such powers. It is an outdated concept and should be broken into many unconnected pieces. Arizona wants out, and probably Oregon too. The Certiorari Act has to be anulled before we ever see any real justice in America.

I'm waiting for the part where they rule that this whole sack of libturd shenanigans was illegal and that the president DID, DOES and WILL have a right to make immigration decisions such as this with no bullshit clown posse able obstruct this kind of thing.....unless there comes a time when I want to get out...which I can't, so I won't.

so much winning, you're going to get tired of winning. 

But you know what? we're going to keep on winning.

A truck load of Teedy bears was just delivered to the 9th Circus. Psychologic counsellors will be arriving to assuage their hysteria at 3 pm and Schumr promises to cry, LIVE on Tv at 4pm.

The 9th circuit (circus) court of Appeals are an embarrassment to an already deeply corrupted judicial system.

You want to clean up the swamp, require that any code or law pass constitutional review prior to enforcement   ;-)

swmnguy's picture

How would you do that?  Sue yourself in Federal Court under a law that doesn't exist yet, for claims that haven't happened yet?

I see your point, but to do that you'd have to scrap the entire US legal system and start from scratch.

RagaMuffin's picture

Actually  stole the idea from France, so it does not guarantee a positive outcome, but the system as it stands skews the power in the favor of the government , not the people. let alone the constitution

Kayman's picture

"require that any code or law pass constitutional review prior to enforcement"

No. Amend that to all laws "amended" by the Ninth Circuit are null and void unless the Supreme Court approves.

It is only the Ninth Circuit that operates as a Scofflaw.

"I feel a great disturbance in the force, as if millions of SJWs and snowflakes cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced"

Will Madonna want to burn down the Supreme court, now? What about Kathy Griffin? Whom will she "decapitate"? Will the antifa-ggots now attack the Supreme Court justices?

Trump needs to settle down. He's reading way too much into it.

It shouldn't even have gotten this far.

He needs to deal with with DOJ's internal sabotuers.

Kayman's picture

"He needs to deal with with DOJ's internal sabotuers."

That's some job- firing 99% of the DOJ staff. The front lines of the Deep State.

Enforce some laws, ignore others. Rampant corruption.

Well, I am sure Orange Jesus is gonna be high fiving all around, but does anyone think this is actually going to "keep us safer?"

Pull the other one.  This is what he blew so much political capital on? So he can toot his own horn and walk around saying he won?

Sorry Donnie, you won the battle but are going to lose the war. War being the survival of the USA as we know it.

therew ould be several hundred people alive today in Europe had the EU had a ban on immigrants without verifiable character references and other bona fides.

still, maybe there are no terrorists in the US, maybe that bowl of M&M's does not contain a single one that contains C4 or arsenic.

Chances are, if there is a "terrrist" here, he/she came from Saudi Arabia.

It was Black Messiah's executive order.  Are you saying Orangabama crafted the EO to make America more dangerous?  What the hell are you talking about?

Duty Chief's picture

You are correct that it does not make us one bit safer; however...

Unanimous: All 9 agreed this is within the president's purview.  That is significant.  Because this battle was won, others will not need to be fought. Lower courts (not the 9th) will be less likely to kick it upstairs.

He spent political capital, but he re-charged some political capital too.  I think this is an even trade.  The flyover counties are high fiving without a doubt.  This can only help him with the agenda and in the mid-terms. An energized base is never bad.

We are only 5 months in.  You can't fix it all in one fell swoop.  In fact, you can't fix it all period.  Wars are won one battle at a time.  If his only accomplishment is creating a 6 to 3 connstitutional court, I will consider his presidency an extraordinary success. That is checks and balances in action.

By the way, love your commentary.

i dont care if it keeps us safer.  If it only keeps thousands of low IQ savages from entry into the US, it's a win.

And what color are you?

hooligan2009's picture

so.. since the Supreme Court upheld Trump's Executive Order, does that mean that the 9th Circuit acted illegally?

Of course, some people are above the law - and some some just swim around all day in a swamp of shit.. never mind.

Kayman's picture

This is a slap in the face of the Ninth Cirrcuit. Even the lefties on the Supreme Court slapped them upside the head.

Ignorance of the Law is no excuse, unless and of course, you sit on the Ninth Circuit.

Bastiat's picture

The 9th Circuit is beyond shame.

Trump is a genius!

Another countless liberal "gotcha" moment vaporized with ease by President Trump.

Liberals need to READ the Constitution before they open their pie holes. 


Bastiat's picture

In their strongholds, like CA, NY, Illinois, they liberals own the judiciary.  Therefore this decision can only be greated with shock and outrage.

farflungstar's picture

they like their falafel and for native citizens to make it, it wouldn't be considered "authentic". Also now it is cultural appropriation FFS

Bytor325's picture

Liberals read the Constitution.  Only their copy has the right to an abortion amendment tucked between the separation of church and state clause and the right for sodomites to marry amendment.

I think their publisher also used invisible ink on the 2nd, 4th and 10th amendments.
