When it comes to news updates on President Trump’s executive order on temporary travel restrictions, it’s easy to feel like Bill Murray in GROUNDHOG DAY. As Yogi Bera might have put it, “It’s deja vu all over again.”

Another lower-court ruling, this time from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, has blocked the revised order. Certainly administration officials were expecting that decision from this most liberal but also most-overturned circuit court. At this point, we can be sure Trump is chomping at the bit to get the case before the Supreme Court, as he knows that with this order he is simply exercising his constitutional authority as President and that no one from another country has the right under our constitution to come here. What was intended to be a pause in the influx of travelers from certain unstable countries while we assessed vetting procedures has been turned, for the sake of convenient legal argument and partisan politics, into a “Muslim ban” and treated as such by liberal courts.

CNN has helpfully mentioned that the administration could still be reviewing vetting procedures while the order is on hold. I’d point out that any such review has surely been hamstrung by all the attention having to be paid to this and other ridiculous legal fights. And who knows the number of un-vettable terrorist wannabes who may have come in during the past few months? We never will.

    Gov. Huckabee, your posts here on FB and TV appearances are truly a beacon in a storm for me. I'm a Pearl Harbor baby and never in my lifetime have I ever seen an fine, capable man like Pres. Trump so continuously besieged by so many: the press, the Dems, Libs and Rhinos and still be able to successfully function. The results of Obama's installation of extremely liberal judges are evident with the Temporary Travel Ban.
    This incident, the leaks and other dirty tricks tells me that Trump's heavy focus on appointees w/ business backgrounds has left an awkward void in his administration which is a group of very loyal old political hands who know where the bodies are buried and understand the mafia-like inner workings of the career gov.employees. Doesn't hurt to have somoe soldiers in low places also to gather grapevine dirt. You can learn a lot that way.
    If you agree, please put a few good suggestions on his desk to hasten clearing of the swamp.

    Mike, I enjoy your posts. You seem level headed and down to earth. I'm disappointed in the courts, congress, mayors, and some governors. I find it disheartening like so many Americans that go to work every day to put food on the table and a roof over their head that so many of our so called leaders either hate the American working class of people, don't care, are communists or Muslim extremist trying to take down our government or they are elite rich people who are in the job for the ego lift in their life. I don't understand what the in the world these people think about what the American people are going to do without jobs, insurance, food and housing? It seems to me that a large group of these people are blind or having a blind eye to the sheer devastation that is coming if they don't do something to turn this economy around and stop immigrants from countries that do not vet their people, secure our borders, and create jobs for our people. I worry for my children and grandchildren's future. Americans have become so complacent. I worry that all the lives lost for Freedom will have be in vein. People just don't seem to have any self pride, pride for family, and pride for country.

    I think it would be easy to track any law-breaking immigrants. Just check them against their entry dates. Then we will know how many crimes the 9th Circuit Court is responsible for.
