A Necessary Precaution Not Popular Among the Left

With the recent changing of the guard, as it were, there seems to be a trend in trying to undermine, malign and marginalize the new president, Donald Trump. Because he has the temerity to make necessary changes aimed at both undoing the unconstitutional executive actions of Barack Hussein Obama and protecting the American people, he gets ridiculed. There are some who ignore reality in favor of being loyal to the opposition party. There are also the clueless bandwagon jumpers-on.

One of Trump’s recent actions was signing an order temporarily halting immigration from seven predominately Muslim countries where radical Islamic jihadists (RIJ) reside. They include Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. To be sure, the leftist media, Hollywood liberals and Democrat politicians had temper-tantrums and some became melodramatically emotional, like Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. But they can have their pity fits, this is a necessary precaution. We live in a different time and place in 2017 and we must take every step to keep RIJs out of our country. Liberals don’t seem to understand this, however. They are either blind, ignorant or both, or are willfully trying to stifle liberty and freedom.

To open the border and just allow non-vetted immigrants into the country, knowing full well the likelihood that terrorism will occur in the United States as a result, is the height of stupidity.

There are many justifiable reasons to halt immigration into this country, the number one being to protect Americans from terrorism. RIJs have already infiltrated the United States. In 2009, for example, United States Army Major Nidal Hassan murdered 13 people and injured 30 others in what’s known as the Ft. Hood massacre. In 2015 terrorist immigrant Syed Farook and his terrorist immigrant wife Tashfeen Malik shot up a holiday office party in San Bernardino, California. In 2016 a RIJ went on a terror spree at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida while he declared his allegiance to ISIS. There are myriad other examples. This executive order is not racist, xenophobic or hateful. To insist otherwise is simply ignorant.

Unfortunately, pundits and politicians alike are eager to chime in on matters they know nothing about. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, for instance, announced that immigrant “refugees” are welcome in his country. That means that we’ll need to build a wall on the northern border as well as the southern border.

Real Progress Being Made in Trump’s First Days

Happy days are here again. President Donald Trump has begun his term by taking action – he has begun the process of reversing former President Barack Hussein Obama’s leftist agenda. It is so refreshing to see a new United States president keep the promises he made during his campaign.

Among the many things he’s done is start the process of eliminating funds going to international organizations that perform abortions. This is a giant step. The next logical step on this front is to defund Planned Parenthood (PP) altogether. Currently our Congress authorizes $500 million, taxpayer dollars, to go toward butchering unborn babies, ending their precious lives. Audaciously, as seen in hidden camera footage, PP takes baby parts from the murders they perform and sells them to research centers.

Another major advancement in Trump’s agenda toward improving the economy is the plan to renegotiate the Keystone and Dakota pipelines, which would create jobs and get more Americans working again. This is obviously to the disdain of many liberals and environmentalists. For far too long, they’ve had their way with obstructing real progress in the economy. They truly are living in a fantasy, trying to create a utopia which is totally devoid of common sense.

Perhaps the one thing that President Trump will get the greatest push back from is repealing and replacing Obamacare, or the improperly named Affordable Care Act. It’s hard to get Democrats to accept that Obamacare isn’t the great healthcare program they touted it to be. How could it have been when they deceptively passed it in the middle of the night and allowed nearly no discussion about it whatsoever, instead crammed it down Americans’ throats? At some point the realization must sink in that it’s neither affordable nor constitutional.

Thankfully the effort to repeal and replace has begun. Most Americans don’t mind a healthcare program that is an option but we shouldn’t be forced to pay for or participate in it and it shouldn’t cost those who don’t wish to purchase healthcare at all. Government has no place in interfering in a person’s medical or healthcare related concerns. Healthcare is best left in the hands of individuals and their medical practitioners. Moreover, the private sector is where it works best.

There is more to be done with reversing the Obama regime’s agenda. A top priority is securing the borders and building a wall to curb the massive trespassing onto American soil. Eliminating the Environmental Protection Agency would be another priority. Allowing parents a choice in their children’s education is another welcome change. All these changes will come with resistance, of course, but they are so necessary in improving our economy and shutting down the tyranny Americans were under the last eight years.

What’s going to happen, though, with the critics and opposite party politicians when Trump makes changes and they turn out to work pretty well, more Americans get out of poverty and things are good? They’re going to have to admit and accept that their agenda was and is inferior.

Obama made comments about voicing his opinion during Trump’s administration should he feel America’s core values are at risk, however, America’s core values were at risk his entire term.

Immigration Policy in a Trump Administration, Part 2

Why do we allow people to enter our country unlawfully and get away with it? We prove ourselves weak when we do that. Thankfully, we now have a president-elect who promises to fix America’s number one problem – illegal immigration and the negative effect it’s had on legal Americans, society and the economy.

In his administration, President Obama made the United States a safe haven for illegals. Activist lawyers and organizations sought to preserve the rights of illegal aliens. Well, what are illegal alien rights and who gave them these rights?

A scour of the U.S. Constitution renders no such rights. Illegal aliens don’t have the same rights as Americans. This is something made up long ago by someone or some group that perpetuated the lie long enough that generations of people now assume it’s the truth. There is nothing in the Constitution that guarantees illegal aliens special favors in this country for breaking the law, yet activist judges and tyrannical executive administrations continue to allow it.

It’s infuriating at its surface and mind boggling on a deeper level. When is fairness going to count in this country? I’m infuriated as a citizen born in the United States but I’d be extra furious if I was a citizen who came here legally to this country, after saving thousands of dollars and waiting years to get through the process. And Obama comes along with his mighty pen and signs a bill that mocks the whole process I just went through?

Those who fight for the “rights” of illegal aliens to live unlawfully in the United States make the age-old claim that they are just doing the jobs that Americans won’t do. That is a big fat lie that has been used repeatedly to somehow justify legal and illegal immigration. Newsflash: America is not in dire need of filling jobs that “Americans just won’t do.”

Aside from that, we 1) don’t need foreigners coming into America taking jobs Americans deserve first, and 2) need to be extra cautious of foreigners coming in who may be terrorists. This is a proven problem here. It’s not a racist thing. It’s not a xenophobic thing. It’s just reality.

Another falsehood of the left is that “undocumented immigrants” are living in the shadows. Really? That’s not what most of America sees on a daily basis. Drive by any Home Depot in the middle of the day or visit a sanctuary city such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Washington D.C. or New York City, to name only a few.

Perhaps the most audacious thing the left does is hide behind the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution. The intent of the 14th Amendment was never to allow people from other countries to get here, illegally or otherwise, and then declare “Safe! Didn’t get me, therefore I get to stay.”

No, it was to ensure the rights of those brought here against their will, through slavery, which had been abolished, to be able to live here free with rights. Those who violated this law by coming here illegally were tWTP Rallyo be deported. Otherwise it would create a chaotic situation and an undue burden on American citizens. Anyone who takes the time to read the 14th Amendment, taking into consideration the context with which it was written, should be able to understand its true meaning. There are some, however, who willfully ignore American history and interpret it in a wildly far-fetched fashion.

With Donald Trump set to take office on January 20, 2017, the very near future looks bright as regards the issue of illegal immigration. As there are plenty of problems to be tackled at the start of the new term, illegal immigration is the top domestic one. Americans have been waiting decades for something to be done about it. With Trump, finally there’s hope.
