- President Donald Trump yelled (tweeted in all caps) Thursday evening about a ruling he believes will determine the "SECURITY OF OUR NATION."
When the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals refused to overturn a federal ruling on Trump's travel ban, the decision triggered a national conversation of how it will play out.
The Hill reports Trump "has two unappealing options" before him: request a so-called "en banc" review, again turning to the 9th Circuit but with a larger panel of judges consider the same arguments; or, more likely, a return to trial court, which will push the case closer to a showdown in Supreme Court.
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2017

- Deniers of climate change had their day at the Idaho Statehouse on Thursday, when Idaho lawmakers who reject the avalanche of facts were successful in striking key references from Idaho's new K-12 science standards to climate change triggered by human behavior. The GOP majority of the House Education Committee amended the rules to remove any requirement for students to learn how humans disrupt ecosystems or the cause of rising global temperatures.
