Just Days Before Judge Issued Travel Ban Ruling...Ex-President Obama Made 'Surprise Visit' to Hawaii

This dude is NEVER going to go away. 

Former president Barack Obama made a “surprise visit” to Oahu this week, just days ahead of a controversial ruling on President Trump's new travel ban executive order issued by a Hawaiian judge.

The travel ban ruling issued by U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson was blasted by President Trump as a case of “unprecedented judicial overreach.” Interestingly, Watson is a former Harvard classmate of President Obama who was appointed under his administration in 2012.

Issued on Wednesday, the ruling was an initial salvo in an expected state-level pushback against the executive order. The judge in his 43-page ruling controversially used Trump campaign statements to make the circumstantial case that the executive order violated the law, although both executive orders are arguably within the law and executive authority.

Ahead of the ruling, the president made the aforementioned “surprise visit” to Oahu, Hawaii. The Trump campaign has accused the former president of being actively involved in U.S. politics after his departure from the Oval Office, even going so far as to blame the president for leaks that damaged the Trump administration.

The former president's trip, as the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported on Monday:

Coming off a string of high-profile meetings, former President Barack Obama made an unannounced return to Hawaii Monday.

Just three months removed from his last official holiday visit as president, Obama was spotted dining at Buzz’s Lanikai Monday night.

Earlier in the day, Obama met with tech executives at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose.

Obama took in golf with a few buddies, including Bobby Titcomb, who was arrested in 2011 for soliciting a prostitute in a sting operation. Incidentally, Titcomb's father is Judge Frederick James Titcomb, who even made guest appearances on the television show “Hawaii Five-O.”

Barack Obama did not stay at his usual locale, a $4,500-a-night luxury home in Kailua, Oahu. As reported by CBS News, the Obamas have stayed in several different vacation spots on visits to Hawaii.

Instead, the president resided at a “private” undisclosed location, according to Hawaii News Now. As the story noted, the president's motorcade was spotted on Tuesday afternoon.

On Monday night, President Obama dined at upscale restaurant Noi Thai in Honolulu, Hawaii. The location of the restaurant was particularly interesting to Reddit users, who point out with verifiable information that it was within five minutes of the courthouse where the ruling was issued.

Ohhh lookie at this! 

Judge who issued travel ban ruling is Obama law classmate

U.S. District Judge Derrick Kahala Watson, who halted President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban Wednesday, is a 1984 graduate of Kamehameha Schools who was in President Barack Obama’s class at Harvard Law School.

I am sure it was just a coincidence as was Obama's unexpected trip to Hawaii just before the ruling.

LOL JB! Just like the chance meeting of Bubba and Loretta Lynch on the tarmac.

It's come time to judge the judges.  The following links suggest a Federal Judge can be removed without resort to impeachment.

I'm not enough of a lawyer to say more, other than sharing my photograph.

He needs to be removed. This man was an Obama college buddy at Harvard and he came out with his 42 page opinion right after Obama visited him in Hawaii. 

I agree.  Personally, I believe he qualifies as a domestic enemy of the Constitution and has clearly violated his judicial oath.

I can't wait for the Trump tweet that essentially tells Obama to butt out!

Hahaha  I hear you!

Obama stacked the lower courts, and it largely went unnoticed. The damage he did is more far reaching than most realize. 

He sure did. He wreaked so much havoc on this country in 8 years and he isn't done yet, girly.

Lookie here!
