  9. Beyond Barack Obama’s 2015 Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act, (see link at end of this post) there was already in place extreme vetting for Muslim’s since 2008. Where were all these protesters the past 8 years for the “Deporter in Chief” ? The Dems have been committing these crimes for years.
    http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2016/11/barack-obama-trumpesque-policies-161117100459890.html

    “Extreme vetting of Muslims began in 2008 under a programme dubbed the Controlled Application Review and Resolution Policy, also known as CARRP. Shrouded in secrecy and barely publicised by the media, CARRP authorises special vetting by the FBI of persons thought to pose a terrorism threat. As a practical matter, all of the immigrants subjected to CARRP are Muslim or perceived to be Muslim.”
    “Whereas President Obama succeeded in his programmes by keeping them secret, Trump prides himself on “telling it like it is”. For Muslim Americans, Trump’s repudiation of politically correct language may have a silver lining, by stripping away the artful denials of discrimination in American immigration policy and demonstrating the pervasive anti-Muslim bias.”

    I guess I am just very tired of this self righteous, smug, one sided, leftist protest that somehow Trump is the big evil doer here. We should be actually thanking him for “telling it like it is” and exposing all this evil crap that the so called left and progressives have been supporting and cow towing to for the past 30 years. What hypocrisy. That’s what’s getting stuck in my craw.

    Where is the left in congratulating Mr. Trump on his total erasure and rejection of the TPP and possibly more banishment of other free (sic) trade agreements to come? Now there’s something to get riled up about—tearing down the fascist globalization structure that is a “huge” part of the underlying cause of all these “wars” in the first place and the immigration problem.

  12. Extraordinary. He’s only been in the Oval Office for a week and is already under siege not just from outraged citizens, but lawyers and judges!

    I dare say we may even see US citizens blocked from entering other countries now in reprisal and solidarity; not just unwelcome in those allegedly hostile regimes like Iran, whose nationals have been singled out by Pres. T. as persona non grata.

    He is about to receive his first very public lesson in the principle of the ‘separation of powers.’ A demonstration that the law ~ sui generis ~ is not something to possess or just manipulate & ‘control,’ but a far subtler instrument….bring it on folks!
