Donald Trump removes any doubt that his immigration ban is based on Islamophobia.


It would seem clear to me that Trump is justifying the ban not only by citing terrorist attacks here in America but also attacks against Christians in the Middle East.

And while the killing of Christians based on their religious beliefs is indeed disgusting and inhuman, it is also true that in the Middle East Muslims kill their fellow Muslims due to differing religious beliefs in far, far greater numbers.

The way the tweet is worded it makes is sound as if Trump is using the ban to keep the evil Muslims from killing the saintly Christians in this country, which is a pitfall that even the clumsy Bush administration was able to avoid.

Which is once again quite ironic considering that it is this so-called Christian nation that has been dropping tons of bombs on predominately Muslim countries for the last 16 years.

Trump is also ramping up the "War on Terror" which surely means American troops on the ground in Islamic countries, and an increase in civilian causalities. 

In other words, Trump has just openly started a very public religious war in the name of Christianity on a number of Muslim countries.

And this is how he is responding to those criticizing him for it.

Yeah, I don't think THEY'RE the ones looking to start World War III.

Of course all of this only gives even more credibility to this Twitter account:
There is a reason why you only put smart sane people into the White House.

Does everybody get why now?

      Years ago my one Republican friend said that the muslims wanted to take over and when they did all the women would be wearing burkas (she lives in Tenn.), and she lives in fear of Sharia Law. I am not very learned on what that entails, but she seems to apply it to women's rights most of all.

      She was one of the smartest people I ever worked with -- field of marketing research. She ran her own company. Lifelong Republican who watches only Fox News, believes the NYTimes and Washington Post are screaming liberal papers.

      So, she sounds like your neighbor.

      Yet, to me the evil Republicans of this country are much more likely to get their restrictive laws against women in place than would ever happen with Muslims. Makes no sense at all to me.

  6. O/T: Gaslighting: Know It and Identify It
    https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/here-there-and-everywhere/201701/gaslighting-know-it-and-identify-it-protect-yourself

    Gaslighting is a tactic of behavior in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality. It works a lot better than you may think. Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting. It is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders. It is done slowly, so the victim doesn't realize how much they've been brainwashed. In the movie Gaslight (1944), a man manipulates his wife to the point where she thinks she is losing her mind.

    People that gaslight use the following techniques:

    1. They tell you blatant lies. …
    2. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof. …
    3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition. …
    4. They wear you down over time. …
    5. Their actions do not match their words. …
    6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you. …
    7. They know confusion weakens people. …
    8. They project. …
    9. They try to align people against you. …
    10. They tell you or others that you are crazy. …
    11. They tell you everyone else is a liar. …

    It's all about the Christian pedestal that Trump, who of course isn't religious, is now so into (for example, he and Pence were so into that pro-life march last week, something they associate with true Xians) that they see as being shared with Israel. At once, they are promoting both Xianity and Judaism (yes, even with the Holocaust flub) and tearing down the other religion. Trump had to pull back, for now, on the US embassy being moved to Jerusalem, but that will emerge again later. If the US moves their embassy there, it will surely mean others will follow. Pasted below is a list of consulates and embassies in Israel and where they are located. Right now there are two very religious places listed in Jerusalem and the US consulate but not embassy. Why the need to try that move to Jerusalem in week one when so many countries' offices are stationed in Tel Aviv? It's all about Netanyahu teaming up with Trump to get what Bibi wants.

  12. Let's do the math.

    To issue a Bill of Impeachment by the House of Representatives requires only a simple majority vote: 435 members, majority = 218. Currently there are 188 Democrats in the House. Need only 30 Republicans to recognize that Trump is a danger to their party and we have the votes.

    The Senate requires a 2/3 majority to convict -- 67 votes. 46 Democrats. McCain and Graham are pissed = 50. Count in Rubio and Cruz = 52. Then there are the moderate Senators -- figure 10 or so. We need only 5 more votes.

    Will we have the numbers by Spring?

      "Jihadist groups on Sunday celebrated the Trump administration’s ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, saying the new policy validates their claim that the United States is at war with Islam.

      Comments posted to pro-Islamic State social media accounts predicted that President Trump’s executive order would persuade American Muslims to side with the extremists. One posting hailed the U.S. president as “the best caller to Islam,” while others predicted that Trump would soon launch a new war in the Middle East.

      Several postings suggested that Trump was fulfilling the predictions of Anwar al-Awlaki, the American born al-Qaeda leader and preacher who famously said that the “West would eventually turn against its Muslim citizens.” Awlaki was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2011."

      And his 8 year old daughter was just killed in the recent raid in Yemen. Bullet to the neck. Took her 2 hours to die.

      You better believe they'll be using that to recruit a whole new generation of terrorists. All thanks to TRUMP, the fucking assholes and all of the fucking assholes that made it possible: Russia, Comey, the RNC, the Media and the asshole voters so full of hate they couldn't bother to see beyond their own selfish, narrowminded bigotry.

      "The reaction to the ban from Islamic State sympathizers came as current and former U.S. officials also expressed concern that the temporary ban would undermine the global fight against violent Islamic militants. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he worried about the ban’s impact on Muslim troops fighting alongside Americans to destroy the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

      “The effect will probably in some areas give ISIS some more propaganda,” McCain told CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, using an acronym for the Islamic State.

      Robert Richer, a 35-year CIA veteran and former chief of the agency’s Near East division, said the ban was a “strategic mistake” that could undermine future efforts to recruit spies and collect vital information about terrorists and their plans. How, he asked, can CIA officers persuade Iraqi and Syrian nationals to risk their lives to help the United States?

      “This was a win for jihadists and other anti-U.S. forces,” said Richer, the deputy chief of the agency’s Operations Directorate during the George W. Bush administration. “It fuels the belief out there that Americans are anti-Islam. Otherwise, it accomplishes nothing, because the ones we are most concerned about can still get to the United States.”"

    Koch brothers signal opposition to Muslim ban and border tax

    The billionaire Koch brothers, Charles and David, have signalled their opposition to two of Donald Trump’s most controversial policies.

    The brothers’ campaign group Americans for Prosperity have launched a bid to sink the Trump border tax plan which aims to raise millions from import duty to pay for a wall along the Mexican border.

    On Sunday the group also challenged Trump’s intention to stop the movement of people from countries with large Muslim populations from traveling to the United States.

    “The travel ban is the wrong approach and will likely be counterproductive,” said an official of the Koch network, which refused to endorse Trump during his presidential campaign.

    "It took little more than a week in office for President Donald Trump to thrust the nation to the brink of a constitutional crisis.

    When federal judges rule, government officials — up to and including the president — are supposed to obey or risk being held in contempt of court. A government that ignored the courts would be able to violate the law and the Constitution at will. So for more than two centuries, the nation’s courts have had the last word on what’s legal and constitutional — and what is not. “We are and will remain in compliance with judicial orders,” the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement Sunday evening.

    But there was little indication that the Trump administration has fully complied with the court orders — or that Trump’s inner circle even believed the administration had to do so.

    CBP officials refused throughout the weekend to obey the Virginia judge’s order to allow lawyers access to detainees at Dulles. “It’s not going to happen,” they told attorneys who hoped to represent the detained people. When Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) showed up at the airport shortly before midnight Saturday, CBP officials refused to meet with him, according to reporting by The Daily Beast’s Betsy Woodruff.

    The next morning, four Democratic members of the House of Representatives went to the airport and tried and failed to convince CBP to obey the order.

    On Sunday night, Sens. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) and Richard Durbin (Ill.), the second-highest-ranking Democrat in the Senate, sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general requesting an investigation into the agency’s handling of Trump’s executive order and response to the court rulings. The senators asked the IG to figure out whether any CBP officers disobeyed court orders, what they did, and who ordered them to do it.

    “The United States Constitution means little if law enforcement agents disregard it,” Duckworth and Durbin wrote. “The American people are relying on your independent investigators to serve as a check against a powerful law enforcement agency that may be ... operating in violation of the law.”

    The weekend’s events had all the makings of a constitutional crisis, two law professors told HuffPost.

    Disobeying a court order “is a big deal for any government official — federal, state, local, executive, legislative, whatever,” said Abner Greene, a law professor at Fordham University. “Obedience to specific court orders is what keeps us from being a banana republic or fascist dictatorship. That’s a really big deal.”"
