Agreed but for the sanctity of America and our values, I would urge them to be expedient about it. Halting legal immigration is much more problematic.


Agreed, however, I think that what was illegal and maybe even legal before will be reevaluated upon the realities of the existing world and the possible merits of past programs.

Possibly, going forward, something may change. The vetting particularly.

Close ties with the royal family, petrodollar, Opec and secret intelligence information.

This should be quite obvious, especially considering the fatwa's against Gaddafi and Assad coming from Qaradawi who is a islamic authority residing in the gulf states.
This while protesters within the gulf states were simply shot dead, but not one news agency reported on this, only a few videos surfaced on youtube.

15 of the 19 alleged hijackers on 9/11 were Saudi citizens.

I see someone making full use of their thinking cap.


I am wringing my hands (in hope) to see the first legislation introduced during Trump's administration.

Which piece precisely, and at what price?

It has been widely reported that the ban on certain countries for the next 120 days is happening via executive order.
The same question arises in each thread spanning the internet. Why not Saudi Arabia? Why not Pakistan or Afghanistan?



 



.....uuhhh..... because it serves the 'America First' interests to not apply stringent or blanket immigration
& visa requirements on persons from those Muslim/Islamic Nations

SA because of OPEC & USA Reserve Dollar status...... .SA also holds ~$850 billion to $1.2 Trillion in US Treasuries
Afghan because of the couple Trillion opium/heroine industry
Paki because of the Islamic Nukes in their arsenal

Not a fan of Saudi Arabia, but unlike the 7 countries banned in Trump's EO they haven't fought a bloody civil war with Islamic extremists.

They seem to be firmly in control of their radicals, if you know what I mean... which deserves a full investigation.

The two most critical countries that needed banning where Saudi and Pakistan. I'm sure there are host of others.

PERIOD.

Saudi is a threat to the World's national security and needs to be completely dismantled forever. Maybe that could be set up for people fleeing other areas.

Why Not Saudi Arabia



My guess is that as of now the U.S. is too dependent on Saudi Arabia to just pull the plug. You guys have a lot of men and women of the armed forces in the Middle East, and Trump would screw them by ignoring their dependency on the "friendly" hub that is Saudi Arabia.

If Trump somehow succeeds in scaling back - if not altogether ending - U.S. activities in the Middle East the situation would be different.

I do not think that Trump have any love for the Saudis, so I think the above could offer a plausible explanation.

We only get 13% of our oil from SA. So what else do they do?

"Why Not Saudi Arabia"

There are not that many immigrants and refugees from Saudi Arabia, so why bother listing them? In Europe the top nationalities are:

Syria
Afghanistan
Iraq
Pakistan
Kosovo
... and other places like Eritrea, Nigeria, Albania and regions in North Africa.

I understand the old Koch brothers and Bush connections in regard to Saudi oil but what is the connection with Trump and Saudi oil?

Pardon my ignorance.

From Trumps mouth:

To this, Trump answered, "We're going to have extreme vetting in all cases. And I mean extreme. And we're not letting people in if we think there's even a little chance of some problem."

In no certain terms he leaves out the answer we all would like to know.


Exactly! If the sole reason for the bans is protecting US security, why Sudan? Why not Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, or Afghanistan as you say?

But, the ban is based on protecting from terror, right? Saudi Arabia is a known originator of terror and terror funding.

He's proving a point. The same as he did with the "flag burning law" during the election that turned out to be a quote from a Bill sponsored by Hillary Clinton when she was a senator; the same as he did with the "build a wall" direction that turned out to be a law passed under Obama's administration.

Trump did not draw up the list. He is putting into place (with some amendments) the recommendations made by Obama's administration. Trump's EO doesn't even mention the countries, it simply points back to the list drawn up under Obama.

So, if people want to scream and cry about "leaving out SA is dodgy and there needs to be an investigation", well... you might be right. But you need to be investigating Obama's reasons for leaving it off the list.

Trump has consistently done this. Waits for everyone to get up in arms over something, then point out that they're actually criticising the actions of the previous Administration.

The man is a God of trolling. He has elevated it to an art form. It's a beautiful thing to watch.
