What a monster he is.

Just the facts ma'am, just the facts.

Raw emotion is never a good energy to run on. The trumpster and those around him play to the raw and irrational emotion of the American people, primarily fear of other cultures and races. Their tribalistic nationalism has these leaders on a constant lookout for a dark sinister boogeyman.

We note the tendency for both conservatism and progressivism to trend to the extreme of the ideology. One extreme is as bad as the other because it stunts ones ability to think rationally. Extremes must be guarded against always.

Good article. Thanks for posting.

At a time when refugees are pouring in from war-torn corners of the world, this executive order is barbaric.

It is a 90 day hiatus not a ban and maybe we should have a immigration policy that makes sense. Look how well open immigration has worked for GB, Germany and France. Attacks, massive debt increases. California is starting a petition to break away from the US. If could I would vote to leave and open up the country of California to any and all immigrants.

Bullcrap. No significant element of progressivism has ever come within light-years of the degree of extremism which is now mainstream and in power on the conservative side.

Statement of Steven Goldstein, Executive Director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, the U.S. civil and human rights organization among Anne Frank organizations worldwide:

As President Trump prepares orders to wall out Mexicans and shut out refugees from America, today marks one of the most hateful days in our nation's history. Donald Trump is retracting the promise of American freedom to an extent we have not seen from a President since Franklin Roosevelt forced Japanese Americans into internment camps during World War II. Today the Statue of Liberty weeps over President Trump's discrimination.

President Trump is beyond the wrong side of history. He is driving our nation off a moral cliff.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Anon, RN, and Ahab,

Trump is destroying everything this country HAS stood for. The world detests him and so do a majority of the American people. His poll numbers are in the mid to low 30s! Unheard of for a newly inaugurated president.

Trump has turned out to be everything we said he'd be, and then some.

skud: "If could I would vote to leave and open up the country of California to any and all immigrants."

Well didn't the native Mexicanos who originally inhabited California do that to the Europeans who came in a took over their land?

Also, skud, what would you have us do with these words by Emma Lazarus that are found at the Statue of Liberty:

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Are those words not worthy of this country anymore?

Jerry Critter said...

None of the terrorists who have attacked our country from 9-11 until today have come from any of the 7 countries that Trump has banned refuges from. NONE! This move is clearly aimed at Muslims, not terrorists.

Once again, TRUMP LIES!

Clearwater, Florida said...

"Hours after Trump signs Muslim ban, Texas mosque goes up in flames
This is just tragic."

Those repulsive bigots on "certain" right wing blogs are doing a happy dance over this.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Jerry, I understand he hasn't banned Muslims from Muslims countries where he does business. I have to verify that, though.

Clearwater, I know what you mean. They've been spreading their Muslim hatred for years, now they've found the perfect vessel for their ugly bile -- Donald J. Trump -- the opposite of everything this country has stood for.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Trump’s Immigration Ban Excludes Countries With Business Ties

See, the Muslims that Trump can make money off of are good Muslims, so they can come into the country, and of course Trump and his thugs know none of them are terrorists.

Shaw Kenawe said...

More on the above from Bloomberg:

"President Trump has signed an executive order that bans citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East from entering the United States for 90 days, according to the White House. His proposed list doesn’t include Muslim-majority countries where his Trump Organization has done business or pursued potential deals. Properties include golf courses in the United Arab Emirates and two luxury towers operating in Turkey."

Trump doesn't believe anyone will notice this. He truly is vile.

Rational Nation USA said...

When doesn't he lie Jerry? My guess? Maybe 30% of the time.

e said...

doe skud do anything else but defend president a$$h0lE?

Rational Nation USA said...

Shaw, simply put Trump has a problem with consistency. In other words if Muslims are the problem, they aren't BTW, then ban immigration (for 90 days) from ALL Muslim countries.

If Muslims aren't the problem, they aren't, then there is no reason at all for the ban.

The problem is Islamic extremists who respect nothing other than what they believe, their ideology.

Extremeism is a problem from wherever it hails from.

Rational Nation USA said...

Yeah he does. He dumps on Obama, HRC, and "free stuff".

Basically a broken record for the alt-right e.

Jerry Critter said...

The biglyest exporter of terrorists to the US is Saudi Arabia by far. Why aren't they on the banned list? Sad! So sad! 😭 Bigly sad.

Ducky's here said...

Here's an excerpt from a story in the Globe:

"Among those whose plans were disrupted was Seyed Soheil Saeedi Saravi, a scientist from Iran, who was planning to come to Boston with his wife to work at a research laboratory specializing in cardiovascular disease at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Now his visa has been suspended for three months.

“Many Iranians are successful persons in the field of science and trade in US. We are peaceful people and we are out of political games,” Saravi, 30, wrote in an e-mail. “We learn, research, work for development of our country and help to improve the public health of global populations. . . . I am so sorry for this decision.”"

Sure sounds like someone who has nothing to offer America, eh skud?

So President Happy Hands comes up with a policy that not only shreds our values but actually causes damage.
And why not admit that this three months ban is just prep to make the ban permanent, eh skud?

On another topic, shaw.
Over at the mothership the light is dawning over Marblehead:


Now they’re saying “Well, gee, we’re afraid people might be unhappy if we change Obamacare…We don’t know quite how to fix it!” They didn’t THINK about that when they’d been hammering about getting a president who’d repeal it? My GOSH.

Maybe there's some buyers remorse creeping in?

Jerry Critter said...

RN -- "When doesn't he lie Jerry? My guess? Maybe 30% of the time."

Let's see, RN. If he sleeps about 7 to 8 hours per night, then 30% is about right. 😏

Ducky's here said...

"Trump Says His Order To Bar Refugees And Travelers Is ‘Working Out Very Nicely’"
Yeah Happy Hands, you've got a judicial restraining order and protesters are packing international terminals all over the countries.
Not bad on short notice but wait for the main events, asshole.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Ducky, Trump's latest executive orders prohibited an Iraqi family whose father worked as a translator for American military while in Iraq. He and his family were vetted and were on their way to come to America when Trump's ex-order stopped them in Egypt. Trump has created chaos around the world.

I hope his days as POTUS will be fast and furiously shortened by Constitutional action.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Ducky: "On another topic, shaw.

Is that even possible? I understood they though Trump was their Savior who would makeAmerica great again. He's actually making America chaotic.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Jerry, Trump does business with the Saudis. He's not going to put them on a no entry list. It would hurt his bottom line.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Clearwater, those rabid right wing bloggers have always been bigots, and now they have their guy in the WH to carry out their dreams.
