FW: From Auntie Martha

Friends and family please, whether you hate this man or not, let's not spread lies about this country. 
All I have seen the last 2 days are people flipping out about an 'indefinite ban' 'muslims banned from
USA forever' 'you can't be a Christian and ban refugees' 

I knew I had to be missing something. I don't live under a rock, but all of a sudden everyone was flipping out. 
Sadly I had to DIG to find out real information. Not media information. Real information. I then realized this was 
not a forever ban, but a halt while the US can better vet incoming refugees for terrorism. 

Please see our presidents clear explanation released today, below, that may clear up any 
miss conceptions you have heard from your friends or the media.

We already had extreme vetting; it takes 18-24 months before refugees are approved.

This was a Muslim ban and everyone knew it.

Also - how odd that Egypt and Saudi Arabia, two countries that have led to terrorist attacks here, were not on the list. Could that be because our current so-called President has investments there?

Gee, we'll never know, since he won't release his tax returns.

LOL. How fucking gullible are these people?

"Well everyone actually effected by it is freaking out about this ban, but Trump (the huge liar who lies constantly about everything) says its ok, so it must be ok, right?"

Auntie Martha had to "dig" to get what any news story would have told her? While she may not live under a rock, she probably lives in a social media/infotainment bubble and should probably "dig" a newspaper out of the trash can more often.

Sigh, if only the president could actually write or speak as well as this publicity release, maybe we could all sleep a little better at night.

Howzit possible that Auntie Martha, who claims not to live under a rock, didn't know this? It's a buncha bs, as the ban is most def a Muslim Ban, no matter how some rightwing think tank hack - who purports to be "writing" for the Donald (who cannot put together a cogent tweet, much less something this long) - scribbles out some purty werds that make it sound somehow "different."

I disagreed with Obama's form of extreme vetting of those 7 countries. Why pick them? As CharlieE indicates, even Obama never banned those from Saudi Arabia and Egypt, which are where most of the overseas terrorists have come from, who wreaked some havoc here.

It's all bullshit, frankly. And here's a tiny clue for free: if we don't want refugees trying to get here to get away from the mess that WE HAVE made in their countries, then how about we stop meddling in those countries with bombs, drones, troops, etc?

I thought stupid idiot RWD voted in this imbecilic liar in order to stop wars in the ME?? Duly noted that, as I predicted long ago, he's not only extending War, Inc in the ME, but now he frickin wants to get in a shooting/bombing war with N. Korea.

Great. Hope you enjoy all your tax dollars being siphoned straight into Trump Family Industries offshore accounts, RWD, bc that's exactly what is happening. As predicted.

"God" Bless America my azz.

The scary part of this, though, is the emerging theme -- which I'm seeing among all the Trump supporters I know -- that Trump's own version of events, his words, that's the only version we, as Americans, can trust.

Everyone except Trump, these supporters claim, is lying to us. We can only get the real truth from our leader, Trump.

That's the worldview that gives us a fascist dictator.

American Civil Liberties Union Executive Director Anthony D. Romero issued the following statement on President Trump’s executive order that would target Muslims for “extreme vetting:”

“‘Extreme vetting’ is just a euphemism for discrimination against Muslims. Identifying specific countries with Muslim majorities and carving out exceptions for minority religions flies in the face of the constitutional principle that bans the government from either favoring or discriminating against particular religions. Any effort to discriminate against Muslims and favor other religions runs afoul of the First Amendment.”

And liberals wonder why the fascists hate the ACLU.

While the ACLU is far from perfect, I've never wondered why conservatives hate them. Anyone who stands up and fights for the rights of the 99% - into which category most conservatives fall, but somehow they like to believe that they're in the 1% or headed there very soon - is a bounden enemy of RWD.

Of course, it's the usual: the dog forbid that the blahs and browns get something or have their rights defended.

RWD would prefer to be ground under & pulverized as long as the dirty horrible minorities get shafted worse than him.

And yes, Trump has been very smart at propagandizing his fans into only listening to him. Everyone but Trump is a liar. That was neat trick but comes straight from the Fox/Rush playbook, so no big surprises there, either. Done and dusted.

"I then realized this was not a forever ban, but a halt while the US can better vet incoming refugees for terrorism."

Because you saw the directive calling for a review of those procedures, the staffing, the budget, the assignments given to the multiple agencies involved, the review process after, a cooperation and meetings with the UN High Commission on Refugees...? No? Oh, gee....

"Sadly I had to DIG to find out real information."

Keep digging, fool.
