Since we're in the darkest timeline, it wouldn't surprise me if SCOTUS ultimately rules 5-4 for the Trump administration with Gorsuch as the deciding vote.

When there are 4 other people voting the same, how is gorsuch "the deciding vote"?

It'll be filed right along with the changes to policy that the "temporary" ban was supposed to buy time to publish.  90 days, in fact, and that was over 100 days ago....  Gee, I wonder why its taking so long.

Because if Garland were on the court, we suspect he would have voted with the reasonable people.  Gorsuch, less likely.

I thought the president only needed a 90 day ban so he could come up with the best plan. Ban or not it is now day 167 shouldn't the best plan be complete by now?

By the time the process is litigated to conclusion the 90 days will have passed and the ban lifted.

And then the people ruled to be unfairly excluded by the courts will be filing suits against DHS.

Fun times. Thanks, Trump.

You do realize you're comparing reality to a completely fictional one in your head right?

Was that wrong?  Should I not have done that?

Who says the ban will ever be lifted? If President Bannon has his way the ban will just be renewed every 89 days in perpetuity.

But in its filing Wednesday, Hawaii said the government "fundamentally misconstrues the Supreme Court's partial stay," adding that the court said the ban should apply only to people overseas with no connection to someone in the United States.

No doubt a 'connection' should be determined by the rules of "Six degrees of Kevin Bacon".

The judge issued a ruling. This thread is moot. Trump wins.

The ban stays in effect, no changes to the scope.

Federal Judge Denies Hawaii's Motion on Trump's 'Travel Ban'

A federal judge in Hawaii has denied a motion filed by that state seeking to limit the scope of President Donald Trump's so-called travel ban, parts of which were cleared to be implemented by the U.S. Supreme Court.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson said in a ruling Thursday in Honolulu that the Supreme Court is the proper venue to deal with the issue. Watson denied the request without prejudice to its re-filing with the Supreme Court.

It's always darkest before the dawn. And it wouldn't surprise me if in 2018 a rain of votes swept away the republican majority and washed in a raft of new dems, who will hose any attempt by herr trumpenfuhrer to pour more hurr into the SCOTUS when someone is displaced.

I'm expecting the GOP to actually gain seats next year. Then again, I've always been crazy pessimistic when it comes to American politics and could be pleasantly surprised.

if the GOP gets any more power, they'll repeal the 13th amendment, the Emancipation Proclamation.

Did you mean to add "in my lifetime"?  Because if you didn't, I think there are numerous periods of time that would like a word with you.
