The Refugee/Travel Ban Kafuffle
I suggest, very quickly, coming out with a carefully crafted and nuanced statement about the temporary ban and what it's for, which is really as a
brief "pause" within which to undertake a very RAPID and-in depth review of all policies and systems relating to immigration and refugee intake for
the purpose of ensuring the protection of the American people from radical Islamic extremist terrorism.
Tell everyone that the review process and subsequent recommendations will be done as quickly as possible, while making the appropriate allowances for
people under certain circumstances who pose absolutely no threat to the national security of the USA.
It's maybe not such a bad thing to give a bit of a JOLT to the Islamic world regarding extremism and terrorism, although Iran's reaction and response
is alarming and almost threatening.
It's very important that the United States not be seen as an enemy of Islamic peoples or intolerant of them based on their religion and culture.
But it's equally important and vital that the United States protect itself against Islamic extremists while wrapping up the war in Iraq and Syria.
At the same time - hearts and minds are being influenced, and that's a recipe for disaster in the domain of the mind war in pursuit of operating as a
moderating influence on the Islamic and Arab world with the help and cooperation of those nations, including Iran, and Saudi Arabia.
If you don't jump on this quickly in the domain of public and international opinion, then you're setting the stage for the radicalization of the
Islamic world, particularly when you're about to be sending ground troops into Iraq and Syria to secure a safe zone (I hope that's what you're up to)
by which to begin to SOLVE the refugee crisis. To that end, I suggest drawing a line on the other side of Raqqa and inform the Russians and the
Irananians that the United States is going to secure that territory both on land in in the air, in exchange for a BIG DEAL, which will include a Mid
East Peace Agreement.
It's time to huddle and pull together all the pieces of this highly complex puzzle, and SOLVE it, and FAST.
It's time to do the impossible, while at the same time somehow assuaging everyone's concerns and fears, and outrage, which the MSM is stoking and even
participating in (radicalizing via agitation).
This is a very dangerous moment.
You had a good week out of the gate - but it's time to set down and figure all this stuff out, while filling those 4000 slots with well vetted people
(with extreme vetting for satanism).
I think you need to have a three day retreat of sorts to work it all out, the breakout point for the whole enchilada.
Three days in the tomb (bat cave) is what I recommend. It's the way these things tend to work, like some sort of Christian principal.
The typical and traditional meeting rooms aren't big enough I don't think, as various assistants and the like also need to be taking notes when :the
plan" has been formulated.
Take three days of continual policy formation discussion with all the principals and for God's sake let them TALK and run the show while noting the
various decision points.
Then it's action and more action, but I fear that you're moving too fast without finding the simplicity on the far side of complexity for which we'd
give our right arm to find as the beginning of a solution to the complex problem..
