IN OUR courts and the U.S. Constitution we must trust, with a attentive citizenry keeping our politicians honest and humble.

With Supreme Court eyes and minds present in their thoughts, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals three-person panel, Judge Michelle Friedland, Judge William Canby Jr, and Judge Richard Clifton delivered a 29-page (read here) unanimous ruling.

“See you in court,” IN ALL CAPS…tweeted President Trump.

Ahem… You just went to court and you got your ass handed to you.

Forgive me for that uncivil tone, but I felt a little Trump talk was in order.

This is the money quote for me.

The ruling also rejected Mr. Trump’s claim that courts are powerless to review a president’s national security assessments. Judges have a crucial role to play in a constitutional democracy, the court said.

“It is beyond question,” the decision said, “that the federal judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to executive action.”
