Court proves in travel ban ruling it's no brake on Trump


Monday, July 9, 2018

Modern Islam was dealt a heavy blow recently by the five conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court who upheld President Trump’s travel ban. 

Trump’s hostility for the Muslim faith and the shocking words he uses to describe it are well documented but, sadly, the five “supremes” skirted over this in deciding the case. Well, I guess you can dress up dirt to make it look clean but it is still dirt. 

Trump, the autocrat-in-waiting, can now paint a veneer of “national security concerns” on who can and cannot enter the United States. Who will he target next I wonder? Maybe Hindus, Astrologers or Eskimos?

How wrong I was in thinking that the Supreme Court might be an emergency brake on dear leader Trump. God help America.
