Notations On Our World: On #Europe Watch W/the Dutch Elections & @POTUS Watch

The Dutch have re-elected the Prime Minister to a New Term seeing off the Challenge From the Far-Right.    It is a rather complicated structure as underscored by this courtesy of +Al Jazeera English :

After Brexit and the Election of Donald Trump in the United States, someone noted that Common Sense seems to have prevailed.    The next major test of populism is France as Elections loom there as the Conservative Candidate Francois Fillon has been indicted on Graft Charges related to the Fake Job Scandal.     

Meanwhile, in the United States, President Trump's Travel  Ban was blocked by a Federal District Judge in Hawaii on the eve of its' going into effect.  Professor Jonathan Turley just released an analysis of this which is worth noting.   This is as  5 Republican Judges on the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit noted their approval of the President's authority (available by clicking here...)  
It will be quite interesting to see where this all goes...
