U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued a stay regarding President Trump’s second/revised “travel ban” executive order. His logic is as follows:
Associated Press Reports:
U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson… said Hawaii would suffer financially if the executive order constricted the flow of students and tourists to the state, and that Hawaii was likely to succeed on a claim that the ban violates First Amendment protections against religious discrimination.
Watson criticized what he called the “illogic” of the government’s arguments and cited “significant and unrebutted evidence of religious animus” behind the travel ban. He also noted that while courts should not examine the “veiled psyche” and “secret motives” of government decision-makers, “the remarkable facts at issue here require no such impermissible inquiry.”
“For instance, there is nothing ‘veiled’ about this press release: ‘Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,'” Watson wrote, referring to a statement Trump issued as a candidate.
Think about this judge’s arguments for a second. First, he puts the state’s finances over the security of the nation. Second, he claims religious discrimination even though these 6 nations only represent about 10-15% of the total global Muslim population.
The decision is preposterous. UNLESS… You discover that it was all planned ahead of time and that the judge is just a shill for the establishment.
For instance, take a look at how long it took this judge to come up with a 43-page decision.
The judge issued his 43-page ruling less than two hours after hearing Hawaii’s request for a temporary restraining order to stop the ban from being put into practice.
Then combine that with the fact that former President Obama visited Hawaii 48 hours before the ruling. Coincidence? You decide.
There is a soft coup afoot ladies and gentlemen. President Obama has created a shadow government that is attempting to block everything President Trump attempts to accomplish.
