Supreme Court Allows Trump Administration to Use Defense Funds for US/Mexico Border Wall

On Friday, the Supreme Court granted a stay of a lower-court ruling that had barred the U.S. government from spending $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds to extend President Trump's promised wall along the U.S./Mexico border.  The justices were divided along ideological lines: The court’s five more conservative justices voted to grant the government’s request, while the court’s four more liberal justices would not have allowed construction to go forward. Justice Breyer filed an opinion dissenting in part from the stay.

Amy Howe and Steve Vladeck on SCOTUSBlog discuss the Supreme Court order.  Josh Gerstein on Politico also covers the order and offers background.

U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer released the following statement following the Supreme Court ruling: 


“It’s a sad day when the president is cheering a decision that may allow him to steal funds from our military to pay for an ineffective and expensive wall for which he promised Mexico would foot the bill. This is a deeply regrettable and nonsensical decision and flies in the face of the will of Congress and the Congress’s exclusive power of the purse, which our founders established in the Constitution. As litigation continues, I hope that the courts ultimately reach the correct decision that the president doesn’t have the authority to build his ineffective and expensive wall.”

What you'll learn
1. Discussion on art and nuances of Essay writing. Essay paper is a low-hanging fruit as you just have to package the content you have in a presentable manner. But this entails a creativity quotient and skills to write an above-average essay.

2. Understanding the basics of the Essay writing without which it becomes difficult to score good marks in essay paper. How to connect one paragraph to another , what should be the flow in the essay , how many dimensions to discuss to score good marks. All this will be discussed in classes.

3. Learning of various approaches to Essay writing in general and Introduction and Conclusion in particular. It is well known that many times students can write content for MAIN BODY of the essay , but when it comes to Introduction and Conclusion of Essay they can’t do justice with it.

4. Essay writing is an art and so by the very definition can be learnt by practicing it correctly. During classes there would be brainstorming sessions on the previous years topics of UPSC Essay paper. This would help you learn how to unfold an essay topic.

5. Most importantly, stress to be given to PHILOSOPHICAL topics which are becoming the darling of UPSC in recent times. It is here that normal candidates are lacking to express themselves. After the classes you must be able to deal with philosophical topics confidently.

6. Learning how to structure an Essay. As an unorganized and unstructured Essay is the one which gets poor marks in Main Examination. Hence if you know how to structure your essay you can ensure good marks in this paper.
