It's not a travel ban, it's banning the use of carry on electronics, they have to be checked.
good for them,
Oh... Yes. It will take me some time to unravel the ramifications of this newsworthy item.
But right off the bat...I can say good for them! As long as they still let some refugees enter...
No more immigration either.
Hah. Good joke
A little clarity in the headline might be appreciated. Here's the first paragraph of the story.
"The United Kingdom has joined the U.S. in banning the use of laptops, phones, tablets, and other electronic devices from the main cabin of their aircraft from six middle eastern nations: Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, and Saudi Arabia."
So what? Most countries are for that. That has nothing to do with Trump's 'Travel Ban', which is getting an ass kicking in the courts.
DD - Once again you are assuming I've said something that I have not. I never said it has anything to do with the travel ban - in fact I pointed out what the article was actually about instead.
The ';ass kicking' you refer to is simply the most recent example of activist judges deciding on anything other than law. It will be dealt with - legally.
How many judges have to ban it, before Trump gets a clue?
Sorry, but nobody wants his bias travel ban. Except, of course, the sadly uneducated Trump minions. Like yourself.
"Legally"? Now that's a word that Trump doesn't know. His track record in the courts is not too good.
How many laws are required for activist judges to understand that their job is to uphold the law. Federal statute (8 U.S.C. §1182(f)) gives the president the authority to suspend the entry of any aliens or class of aliens into the U.S. if he believes it “would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.” And he can do so “for such period as he shall deem necessary.”
End of story.
These attacks on Trump are simply designed to disappoint supporters, and attempt to make him look bad to the uninformed / poorly informed.
"detrimental to the interests of the United States"?
Good point. Now please explain how those SIX countries have been detrimental to the United States?
That's right, you can't. And neither can he. Which may explain why he is down to a 37% approval rating.
DD - The statute reads if he believes it “would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.”
Let's see people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen would be temporarily restricted. Nothing bad ever happens in those places, right? Isn't Disneyland opening in Somalia?
There have been no attacks on American soil from citizens of those countries. (I am talking about the Travel Ban!)
If going by that, then Saudi Arabia and Egypt would have made the list.
So, your problem is that the brush wasn't wide enough!? Interesting - I would not guessed that from you.
Please work on that thick skull of yours.
No, the "brush" was way off mark.
I've noticed that when ever I point flaws in your logic, your response is insulting.
Really? You thought you were pointing out "flaws"? LMAO!!
I rest my case.
You rest nothing. Your boy can't get any major legislation passed. And don't look now, but I see Russia sneaking up.
Getting legislation passed is more difficult when done in the light of day, on work days instead of holidays, everyone knowing what they're voting on - stuff like that.
Russia sneaking up? Yeah, all you lefties seem to see that. No evidence to prove it - but you all claim to know something.
Obama already had stimulus plan passed, and was well on his way to the ACA.
Flynn asking for immunity? Not good.
Good for Obama.
Given the witch hunt mood of democrats, immunity request is smart.
To get immunity, he must have something that the investigators want.
Only an idiot would fail to get immunity from rabid dog investigators. There is no implication of guilt. Shoot, democrats pursue stuff merely because of the 'severity of the accusation'! No evidence required.
Anybody can ask for immunity, but only if you have something to swap, will you be granted it.
WTF does this have to do with Democrats?!
What do you suppose Hillary's aides were hiding when they sought immunity in the probe of her email server?
According to Washington Post - "Flynn is only seeking immunity — as was reported on Thursday evening — because the Democrats and the media are whipping up a rigged witch hunt..."
LMAO!! And Flynn, himself, said they must have done something criminal to ask for immunity. God, Karma is a bitch.
Can you say: "Lock HIM up!!"
