All the uproar about President Trump’s executive order (EO) temporarily putting immigration on hold from seven countries at the heart of the terrorist supply has been as stupid as it is based on huge, bald-faced lies.
As for the EO being a Muslim ban, religion is never mentioned in the EO. Christians, Zoroastrians, etc., from the subject countries are ALL affected. However, the most populous Muslim nation, Indonesia, along with about 40 other (mostly) peaceful Muslim nations are not affected. That’s the end of lie number one. There is no “Muslim ban”.
Lie number two is that President Trump’s EO violates the Consitution or creates new law. WRONG!!! In fact, President Trump is merely calling for the enforcing of existing law – the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015, signed by Obama! The EO doesn’t mention any specific countries or religions. The list of countries is found in the 2015 law that Obama signed! So, if you want to blame someone, blame Obama for not enforcing the laws that he signed! (Along with many others, including the Constitution itself.) That’s lie #2 down.
Lie number three is that President Trump’s EO is wildly unpopular. In fact, the president’s action is supported by a majority of Americans. A Rasmussen Reports national survey found that 57% of likely voters support the president’s action. The idiots in the street are mostly paid protesters funded by Bloomberg and Soros. The rest are just easily led or just plain ignorant. Of course, the mainstream media has their finger on the same pulse they had before the election when Hillary was to win by a landslide – their own biased pulse.
Lie number four is that the president’s action is unChristian. Bishop E. W. Jackson wrote an excellent article exposing both the lie and the hypocrisy behind the lie. Bottom line is that it’s unChristian to open our families to the horrors of terrorism.
Face it, folks. We live in a very dangerous world where there are fanatics that want to kill Americans and destroy our freedoms. The core function of the government is to protect Americans and our way of life, not to coddle terrorists or ignore them. President Trump is doing his primary job, something the previous president neglected for eight years while he was busy golfing and trying to destroy America from within.
President Trump is enforcing existing law that seeks to defend America from importing terrorists, a law that Obama signed but did not enforce. The snowflakes and media need to drop the lies and get with the program.
