    ... inherent right to set foot on a military base, any more than you or I do.  

    Sheesh!  I thought that much was obvious!  He's a civvie, he is not subject to military orders or regulations, however he does not have any inherent right to go on base.  

    If he has no inherent right to set foot on base, he has no inherent right to perform live on base.  QED.  

    Sheesh!, do I have to go to our nearest base and ask someone on duty for a printed copy of their regs about civvies visiting?

      First Amendment implications means what to you?

      Are we applauding decision by government agencies to ban people for not liking the President?

      Why yes we are!

      Aren't we progressive!!!

        Now you've shifted from a legal arguement to a policy arguement.  That's grasping at straws and they're pretty brittle ones at that.

        And we're not talking about "banning people" in some broad way: only about not inviting them to go to military bases.  

        There's no constitutional right of civilians to go into military bases at all, whether to perform or for any other purpose.
