(Update 2-20-17 with Sweden explanation)
It’s not a ban, and it’s not on Muslims. It’s about a region, not a religion. It’s about protection not prejudice. It’s only temporary.
Please read on with an open mind, but not with fear. Inform yourself of what is happening in the world around us. Realize that we need to protect ourselves and our beautiful liberty and freedom.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, that ruled to suspend the EXECUTIVE ORDER: PROTECTING THE NATION FROM FOREIGN TERRORIST ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES , is willing to gamble with our lives, because politics is more important to them than upholding our Constitution and protecting our country’s people. They are not doing their job to uphold the laws that are already in place. Full text: 9th Circuit rules against reinstating travel ban
I’m outraged that the MSM has been lying to us about what this Executive Order really means and making us fear that it means something that it really doesn’t.
Below are all questions I’ve either heard or read in the past few days/couple weeks. I want to see if I can help you answer some of them, if not all of them. Let’s try and “Wade thru the crap” together.
What’s actually happening?
President Trump issued an Executive Order that temporarily restricts people from several countries, that were already identified by the Obama Administration as high risks for terror, until our vetting process, that has been put into place for our safety, is strengthened. This is to protect us, because of the heightened threat of terror that has been happening within our country, and especially in other countries across Europe.
The 9th District Court of Appeals ruled to suspend it. That decision stands, however it sounds like President Trump will be issuing a New Executive Order by next week that will cover all of the “suggestions” The 9th District Court made in their judgement.
Is this discrimination against muslims?
I’ve read this order several times. There is no mention in this order that says it’s a “muslim ban.” The people who have told you that, want to scare you into thinking that we are discriminating against a certain religion, and therefore continue the “Trump Hysteria” and the Nazi dictator narrative. Please don’t let them scare you like that.
Statement to Fox News from Tony Carbonetti, Former Chief of Staff to Mayor Giuliani 1-29-17 “Last night Mayor Giuliani clearly stated several times that the basis for the more extreme vetting was danger NOT religion. However several media outlets have dishonestly mischaracterized this a ban on all Muslims which it was not. This is easily provable since it does not apply to the overwhelming majority of Muslims and countries that are mostly dominated by the Muslim Religion.”Source via “Justice with Judge Jeanine”
Is this even legal?
Yes. It’s legal. There has been NO evidence that leads me to believe otherwise. No one has the right to enter The United States of America unless they are a citizen of the country or have proper permissions. There is even a law that states that the President of the United States has the right to suspend the entry of all aliens of any class or impose whatever restrictions he deems appropriate in order to keep the country safe. (see below)
Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 states: Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration_and_Nationality_Act_of_1952 – Source Wikipedia
But President Trump has no reason to find that any class of aliens would be detrimental to the interests of the USA?
The countries in question have terrorist groups that kill Americans, Jews and Christians on sight. They put heads on sticks. They are not people that can be reasoned with. Radical Islam is not reasonable. They hate us. These countries also have been sending refugees to Europe and Europe has had many recent terror attacks involving ISIS and radical Islam.
I keep reading over and over again that the refugees have nothing to do with the increased terror attacks, however some have been linked to ISIS. So not only could it happen, it has. The number of refugees entering the region, makes it very easy for terrorists to camouflage as refugees. Even if it’s happened once, that’s too many times. Not only that, but terrorists themselves don’t necessarily have to be the ones committing the crimes to be responsible. They can be badly influencing young or weak minds to do their dirty work for them, in order to fly under the radar.
So with that in mind, I see nothing wrong with precautions to protect our citizens and the valuable lives that are already here on American soil until the vetting process can be strengthened.

Crazy scary things happening in Europe as they let more and more refugees into their borders. Of course it’s not the refugees, the ones that are fleeing for their lives, the ones that need care, love and support, that are hurting people. It’s the ones that hide among them, and pretend to be harmless, until they can play out their evil deeds.

A Timeline of Recent Terrorist Attacks in Europe– Source Time
- Three men were shot in an Islamic center in Zurich. Russia’s ambassador to Turkey was assassinated at an Ankara art gallery by a police officer who cried “don’t forget Syria!”
- A large truck plowed through a Christmas market in central Berlin killing 12 and injuring 48 others.
- Normandy church attack in July 2016.
On July 26, two men stormed a French church and took five people hostage during morning Mass. They murdered an elderly priest, Jacques Hamel, by stabbing him in the chest and slitting his throat. – In the name of ISIS
- Nice truck attack in July 2016.
On Bastille Day, France’s national day, a large truck deliberately plowed into a large celebration in the southern coastal city of Nice. At least 84 people were killed that night; hundreds more were injured. -“radicalized” by ISIS.
- Brussels bombings in March 2016.
On March 22, at least 34 people were killed and 190 wounded when three blasts shook Brussels: two at Zaventem airport and one at a subway station near the headquarters of the European Union. ISIS
Terror attacks timeline: From Paris and Brussels terror to most recent attacks in Europe – with disturbing photos
Beyond politics, the assault made plain that Germany, like France and Belgium, is now a primary European target for mass terror attacks. On Tuesday evening, the Islamic State issued a statement through its Amaq news agency describing the driver of the truck as “a soldier.” But the group offered no other details about the driver’s identity, or whether he had directly interacted with it or was just sympathetic to it.
A new poll from the Pew Research Center shows the European public is largely against the European Union’s refugee policy, and thinks increased numbers of refugees will lead to a higher chance of terrorism.
United Kingdom and France show 70%
Pew’s research also showed half or more of people in eight out of 10 countries surveyed believe refugees will increase the chance of terror attacks at home.
Over 250 in just the last 7 years, and at least 6 in the US during that time. That’s almost one a year since 2010.
One a year too many!
Sweden: If you were wondering what President Trump was talking about at his rally on Saturday, February 18, 2017, in Florida, he was talking about the refugee crisis as a whole not one event. Sweden has decided to deny it in their media just as the USA has decided to do. It’s taboo to talk about, and if you do you are labeled a racist, islamophobe etc. just as you are in the USA. But you can not deny the horrible rapes and beatings etc. when you search youtube.
Below is a video from the Tucker Carlson Show. Fast Forward to 22:16 and Tucker interviews a film maker who worked on a documentary about the crisis in Sweden. He has some very familiar things to tell you, and some very horrifying things as well.

Trump may have been unclear, but Sweden experiencing a migrant crime wave – Published on Feb 20, 2017
Why is the media in an uproar?
You may have noticed that everytime you turn on your news, they have a new reason to hate, President Donald J. Trump. Sure, there are good reasons to not like Trump, however most of those things all came out during the campaign, (along with some others that were fake news.) I’m not saying to you that everything he says is the ‘God’s honest truth’ but he’s more truthful than any other politician I’ve seen and he’s more transparent than any other. So far he keeps checking off promises he made during his campaign and that’s something I’ve never seen. He works the office like a regular job and even comes in on weekends! Most of the things he’s done since he became The President of The United States of America have been with the country’s best interest in mind. (But if you have only been watching MSM then you probably either don’t know or disagree, because of the bias you’ve heard. So I guess I’ll save that for another blog. Haha)
I’m sure you have heard President Trump speak out about the media being hateful and dishonest toward him. The media really has been hating on him, since day one. They have not stopped and no matter what he does they will not stop. I have seen him do really wonderful things, that both sides of the aisle have agreed with, at some point and then watched them all complain and protest. The news will turn it all around, omit truths, cause skepticism with no evidence, make negative speculations and then build mountains out of molehills, just to paint him in a dark light. (Go Here To See Everything He’s Been Doing, Working Hard Every Single Day Doing GOOD Things He Promised On The Campaign Trail. -via The White House Website)
This order wasn’t implemented without flaws, (I think we can all agree it could have been handled better, and worded more clearly, with certain obvious exceptions.) The bumpy roll out just gave the media more dirt to make their ‘mountain’. You know like the “when they go low, we go high,” slogan… high actually means making that mountain out of a molehill. The media and progressive democrats immediately called it a “muslim ban”, a “travel ban” and focused on anything negative they could spin. They even used human props to provoke guilt. The poor American public and our young people have been manipulated by them. They’ve been mislead and guilted. This is what enrages me. This is what I want to protest.
During a press gaggle in November of 2015, Senator Schumer told reporters that a temporary “pause” on refugees “may be necessary. (You can’t mistake that agitating voice. Definitely Chuckles. Haha) For some reason WordPress doesn’t want to show you the embedded file so if you want to hear you can click, or just see that video below it.
People that I love have been used as pawns in this war against the Trump Administration. Every article written, every comment read from fake profiles, (YES! FAKE social media profiles, not all but many,) that make scary negative comments about President Trump being some sort of version of Hitler or the devil. Comments that make it sound like he’s been racist and prejudice against a certain religion. Making it sound like he’s taking freedoms away from American citizens, valid visa holders, those who already had permissions to be here, when none of that is even happening. It was all just unclear, and not well administered by a very young Trump Administration. I tell ya, they weren’t doing themselves any favors on that front and hopefully they’ve all learned the lesson from it.
Why is everyone protesting?
People are so confused. There is so much “Trump Hysteria” going on. It’s like an infectious disease that you can catch by watching too much of CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC and sometimes even Fox. (That darn Shepard Smith. haha)
Watters Confronts Students Who Ditched Class to Protest Trump
I had to start doing my own research, because if I just relied on the news for information, I’d be living under my bed! Just by spending 15 minutes on social media and reading the comments on a few articles makes me want to hide!
I see all kinds of confusion. It only takes one dominant persuasive personality to speak to a few uninformed people, then it spreads like wildfire. The only cure is for another dominant persuasive person to do actual time consuming research, to stay informed and to pass on that knowledge to others. However it’s very easy to get a relapse if you don’t continue to feed your fever with true information.
It is not helping that there are judges trying to fight this order, and democrats that are highly respected within their party that are making comments and actions against it. Their actions are irresponsible and just cause more confusion and division within the country.
Let’s see what Democrats have said about this in the past, in the video below.
Fake news stories are not helping anyone either….
According to numerous reports by the left-wing media, Ibtihaj Muhammad, a fencer who made headlines in 2016 for being the first U.S. Olympian to wear a hijab, was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents due to President Trump’s Executive Order. As has become an all-too-common occurrence in the mainstream media, the story turned out to be bogus…
…Despite the breathless headlines and reporting, the media once again went off half-cocked. The Olympian later clarified in Tweet on February 11 that the alleged detention she experienced occurred in December, weeks before Trump even took office.
(Original story: source USA Today https://www.google.com/amp/amp.usatoday.com/story/97676170/ Muhammad, who is a native of Maplewood, N.J., said she didn’t know if she was held as a result of the Trump administration’s travel ban but is sure the move was a result of her ethnicity.)
I thought we were America! We welcome all immigrants!
How can we turn anyone away?
We are a free country. Our Constitution applies to all of you people of this country that live here and are physically on our soil. However it does not apply to people that live in other countries, if it did, America’s people would suffer severely. We need to put our people that are here first. We aren’t closing the doors forever, and this isn’t the first time we have done this. President Trump isn’t the first president to do this. It’s just the first time people started paying attention.
How can we be so heartless?
I would like to help every single person that is in danger in this whole world, but the reality is I just can’t. American can’t do that either. The best we can do is start to make a difference where we are. Besides, this is only temporary and we can start helping people again once they “quality check” and improve our vetting process. You have to take care of yourself first, before you can be there for others. We are helping plenty now and we will help plenty more in the future, because that’s what we do.
How did President Donald J. Trump come up with this list of countries?
The Trump Administration didn’t come up with the list of countries on this executive order, the Obama Administration did.
Trump’s travel decree: What it means and how it works January 30, 2017
“The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror,” Trump said in a statement on Sunday. “To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. This is not about religion — this is about terror and keeping our country safe,” noting that there are at least 40 countries that are predominantly Muslim that “are not affected” by the order.
It’s been said that more countries can and/or will be added to the order as intel deems them as a danger to our safety.
Refugee crisis: Why aren’t Gulf states taking them in? -Source: CNN Tue September 8, 2015
|Photo Credit – CNN Tweet by Luay Al Khatteeb|
Gulf states are hesitant to welcome refugees because they are concerned about what it would mean for their nation’s security, said Abdulkhaleq Abdulla, a retired professor from United Arab Emirates University.
He told CNN that there’s a belief that accepting Syrians who are fleeing ISIS only appeases the terror group. It would feed “into the violence in the region, which is already the most violent region on Earth,” he said.
Which is why those countries do not need to be on the executive order. However, they may be added at some point. Remember that we don’t know all of the intel that the President knows. He has a team of professionals that are constantly working on the safety of the American people of which intel we may never hear anything about.
What you are about to read below ARE NOT MY WORDS. So please don’t call me racist, prejudice or an islamophobe. However, I’ve seen way too many things like this, not to show you.
9/11 mastermind: Al Qaeda favors ‘immigration’ to defeat USA – via Washington Examiner 11/23/16
The jailed architect of 9/11 revealed that al Qaeda’s plan to kill the United States was not through military attacks but immigration and “outbreeding non-muslims” who would use the legal system to install Sharia law……. plan is to fill the country with like-minded Muslims through the country’s easy immigration laws and by having babies, and then using the U.S. legal and welfare system to turn the country into a system like Iran.
Fact Check: Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.” Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL Muslims should or could be refused immigration to OUR country. (That’s not me saying this, that is in the Constitution.)
US Marine on Trump’s Travel ban – “Something to think about”
The Iraqi man who worked as “American Sniper” Chris Kyle’s interpreter during the Iraq War says he agrees with President Donald Trump’s travel ban, and he has some strong words for the protesters who are resisting the executive order.
“Just be American. If you love America more than anything else, you will understand Trump’s decision is for your own benefit,” Walker said. “If you disagree with Trump, and you love your country, go back to your country.”
Kyle pointed out that this isn’t a “Muslim ban,” since travel is not being restricted to many Muslim-majority countries.
“These are basic safety concerns that I think anyone would do for their personal home, and I think we need to give the same respect to the country.”

Trump Officials Move to Appeal Ruling Blocking Immigration Order – New York Times 2-4-17
After a Federal District Court in Seattle blocked Mr. Trump’s order nationwide on Friday, the Justice Department appealed the ruling late Saturday, saying that the president had the constitutional authority to order the ban and that the court ruling “second-guesses the president’s national security judgment.”
On Saturday night, as Mr. Trump arrived at a Red Cross gala at Mar-a-Lago, his waterfront Florida resort, where he was spending the first getaway weekend of his presidency, reporters asked him if he was confident he would prevail in the government’s appeal. “We’ll win,” he replied. “For the safety of the country, we’ll win.”
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has asked for both sides to file legal briefs before the court makes its final decision after a federal judge halted the program on Friday.What this means is that the ruling by US District Court Judge James Robart, who suspended the ban, will remain in place — for now.The Justice Department’s strongly worded court filing lodged a multi-pronged attack on Robart’s decision, emphasizing that halting enforcement of the travel ban “harms the public” and “second-guesses the President’s national security judgment” in the immigration context.”(Robart’s ruling) contravenes the considered judgment of Congress that the President should have the unreviewable authority to suspend the admission of any class of aliens,” the Justice Department wrote in its filing.“Courts are particularly ill-equipped to second-guess the President’s prospective judgment about future risks. Unlike the President, courts do not have access to classified information about the threat posed by terrorist organizations operating in particular nations, the efforts of those organizations to infiltrate the United States, or gaps in the vetting process,” the filing said.Justice Department lawyers further argued that the parties who filed the lawsuit — the attorneys general of Washington state and Minnesota — lack the ability to sue in federal court because their alleged harms are too “speculative.”
The Trump Administration is expected to have a new order ready sometime next week. (2/20-2/24) Trump promises new immigration order as DOJ holds off appeals court http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/16/politics/donald-trump-travel-ban-executive-order/ February 16, 2017 via CNN
President Donald Trump vowed Thursday to roll out a new immigration executive order next week that will be tailored to the federal court decision that paused his travel ban.“The new order is going to be very much tailored to what I consider to be a very bad decision,” said Trump during a news conference, referring to a decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that blocked his travel ban earlier this month.
Here are some interesting facts regarding these countries Israel visa is refused by all the countries on the Executive Order in question as well as Saudi Arabia. (Maybe they will be added to the new order, because many think they should be. Although they are not taking in refugees, so others have argued that it’s unnecessary to add them.)
According to the 2014 Visa Restrictions Index, Israeli passport holders have visa-free or visa on arrival access to 147 countries and territories, ranking the Israeli passport 25th in terms of travel freedom.
Limitations on use by Israel
Under Israeli law, Iran, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen are designated “enemy states” and an Israeli citizen may not visit them without a special permit issued by the Israeli Interior Ministry. The original list was set in 1954, and was updated only once on 25 July 2007 to include Iran. (Not verified). This does not apply to dual nationality holders, as they are free to travel to the aforementioned countries on their other passports.
These are some pretty funny fake stories. Good for a giggle. (Many people don’t like Sean Hannity, because he’s very conservitive and seems to have a little man crush on President Trump, however he’s really reliable on finding and exposing fake news. Personally I think he’s a riot. I’m a big fan. http://www.hannity.com/articles/hanpr-election-493995/heres-a-list-of-stories-the-15533284/
