Didn't Hillary say that she wanted totally open borders?

You really believe that? LOL.


Come on man, why are you quibbling with semantics?
Those countries have terrorists training camps all over the place, so therefore terrorists are more likely to come from those countries. It's doesn't matter if the USA has been hit from one of them or not yet, what matters is - they have been put on notice that we are watching them even closer than Obama's supposed "extreme vetting".
I personally don't give a damn if anyone in those countries is offended by the travel ban.

Here is a link explaining Hillary's dreams of her immigration policies -
www.washingtontimes.com...

SO
WHY
IS
TRUMP
NOT
BANNING
SAUDI ARABIA
AND
AFGHANISTAN?

Why is that so hard to understand? Why not ban those countries that have done acts of terrorism on us?


Because our economy is tied to Saudi Arabia with the Petrodollar. If he want to go after SA he will have to disentangle us, economically first. I don't think he's had time to do that in 10 days. Do you?





And we are doing joint operations in Yemen with them.

That's the whole point.


But unfortunately I don't think it will be banned as they have to much clout. Too much money and stakes.

BTW thanks for the discussion.

Ok then.

If Saudi Arabia is banned, do you think they would be happy? And you know we do businesses with them, especially Trump. So you can see no good will come out of it.



Didn't everybody make him get out of his bizez?

What's he care now? lol. Conflict of interest, remember?

Maybe SA is a different place since the old guy died and the new guy is in.

They are talking about safe spaces for refugees already.

I fully agreed with the ban, infact I think more countrys should have been on it.

But sacking judges to get your own way makes me very very very uncomfortable....

Trump fires Justice Dept. head over executive order defiance.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Accusing her of betrayal and insubordination, President Donald Trump on Monday fired Sally Yates, the acting attorney general of the United States and a Democratic appointee, after she publicly questioned the constitutionality of his controversial refugee and immigration ban and refused to defend it in court.

Boente was sworn in privately late Monday, the White House said. He promptly order Justice Department lawyers to "do our sworn duty and to defend the lawful orders of our President."

Not for nothing, but public servants swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, not the President, who is also a public servant...

These terrorist groups have become a major threat to Saudi Arabia. So they actually fight them now even eradicating them from there own country. In fact they are in an all out war on there northern border. There are some that will still actively support terrorism but not many since the House of Saud considers them a direct threat to there rule. Instead of paying off terrorists not to attack them like the past now they spend that money on there armed forces. And now have a large military to track them down.

thus far, Trump has not acted as an autocrat. He was elected by a specific segment of the population based on a short but recognizable platform. Those people wearing MAGA hats cheered and called for virtually every single executive order and presidential action Trump has taken.

This doesn't make him a good or bad person, but it does make him the most effectual populist president in generations. Trump has attempted to transliterate the demands of the people at his crowds wearing those red hats, and has attempted to literally fulfill the promises, no matter how absurd, that he made on the podium.

historically, this is revolutionary. That is not to say this is a good or bad thing. But it is definitely revolutionary. And why? Because the tradition of presidential candidates is to promise much and deliver close to nothing related to their promises.

Traditionally, presidents claim 100% of X, deliver 10-20% of X, and then institute and deliver another 80-200% of unrelated Y.

Trump is currently hovering at somewhere around 70-95% delivery of X, and his unrelated Y is almost negligible, but among those actions we have things like the Tech and Space sector.

In judging Trump, it is extremely kind to judge him based on his delivery of his promises to the MAGA red hats. If you are not among that circle, you may find him apocalyptic, despotic, and horrifying. That's fair, considering the MAGA hat agenda is so polarizing.

But we must not make the mistake of claiming the majority of Trump's decisions are his own. They are almost a perfect facsimile of the red hats. Traditional Autocrats do things that please the people, but they are still their own deeds and decisions, and often they are bribes for the masses. What Trump is doing is an agenda of a new political segment. He is not acting alone.

Boy you're right, heating up fast. Strange thing is though, is it unprecedented for president to start firing 10 days out the gate? What's unprecedented, the firing or the ban on immigration from 7 nations of concern?

It looks like these nations were nations of concern, but is that grounds to ban immigrants, not just refugees? We're not at war, technically, with any of them, right? Not friends to be sure.

Regarding Yemen and others, info about the 7 countries can be found here:
www.state.gov - Country Reports on Terrorism 2015 Middle East and North Africa Overview...

February 18 2016 (all 7 countries are listed as of "concern"):
www.dhs.gov - DHS Announces Further Travel Restrictions for the Visa Waiver Program...

Here's some history. I'm not sure what it all means yet:
