I find the hypocrisy of the news media, Democrats and the establishment Republicans nauseating. It’s the cowardly politicians like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and the whole Democratic party who have put their political interests and lobbyists first who are making all the noise about President Donald Trump’s order to ban immigrants from countries of risk. If these politicians had done their job in the first place and protected our borders, this would not be an issue. Furthermore, why are they more concerned about verifying whether these immigrants are safe to let in more than they are about the American lives that could be put at risk if a terrorist is hiding among these immigrants.
President Trump’s executive order is not a ban on Muslims as they declare; rather, it is a ban on immigrants coming from countries where we can’t get information as to who they are if they are associated with terrorist groups. If you read the document, you will find that nowhere does President Trump mention Muslims as the purpose of this order; rather, he states that the background of these immigrants must be further researched before they are granted visas to enter.
It is interesting that nobody, including the socialist news media, complained about Presidents Obama and Carter signing the same executive orders when they were President. Where was the news media’s outrage when President Obama ordered the same executive order banning immigrants from Iraq? Where were the protests of Hollywood stars and news media pundits when President Carter banned Iranian refugees and students from entering the United States? It’s time the Democrats, news media and establishment Republicans stop putting their party and interests first and put the American people who elected them first.
Could this outrage actually be another attempt of the political establishment to delegitimize President Trump once again? It is time they stop lying about this order being a ban on Muslims and admit that it is an underhanded attack against a President they loathe, if not hate. If they were consistent with their concerns about banning refugees, they would have been just as disrespectful and belligerent towards President’s Obama and Carter; but they weren’t. It is the fact that they lost the election that they thought they should have won. They can’t stand it that the American people stopped listening to them, and they can’t swallow that they are losing their influence over the American people.
President Trump is in his Constitutional legal rights to make this executive order. In Title 8, Chapter 12, US Code 1182 it says, 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 nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
If you want to know why they are so concerned about President Trump, look no further than 1 Timothy 6:10 which says, “For the love of money is the root of all evil…” Power is money, and they know they lost their power when they lost this election. President Trump has every right to protect the interests of the American people because that is why he was elected. It is finally refreshing to have a leader in the White House who is putting the safety of the American people first over the winds of political polls and political correctness. However, these politicians are only twisting this executive order to try to take power away from President Trump so they can control the agenda once again, which is their greedy pockets.
As a Christian, I am concerned for the souls of these immigrants. However, I’m also cognizant that there are wolves who come in sheep clothing that want to destroy the lives of innocent people. When it comes to borders, the Book of Nehemiah makes it clear of the importance of protecting them; that is why Nehemiah built the wall. Let me encourage you not to get caught up in the lies of what the news media is pushing. Read the executive order for yourself. You will find that there is nothing that should concern you; if anything, it should encourage you that someone is looking out for your safety.
