The Need for Trump’s Executive Order on Immigration by Fred Gedrich

Editor’s Note: From our great friend and regular SUA contributor Fred Gedrich and our friends at Breitbart.

Fred Gedrich is a foreign policy and national security analyst.  He served in the U.S. departments of State and Defense.

President Donald Trumprecently announced that he will be issuing another executive order temporarily pausing travel of refugees and/or aliens from seven dangerous countries to the United States.

His first order on this subject stalled in Federal courts after hundreds of State Department careerists objected to the original order. His new action may once again displease the State Department careerists, federal judges and others opposed to his policy, but it may save lives in the American homeland.

During the first week of his presidency, President Trump ordered a temporary pause in refugee and alien travel to the United States from seven of the most dangerous radical Islamic terror-practicing, terror-infested, civil-war-ridden, and/or failed Muslim-majority states on earth (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen). A prime purpose of the order was for the new administration to evaluate whether current U.S. visa screening procedures for travelers from those countries were adequate enough to prevent foreign terrorists entering the United States disguised as innocent refugees or aliens.

The president’s action seems reasonable to many Americans, the extent of approval/disapproval varying according to polls. One of his presidential campaign promises was to install an “extreme vetting” protocol for refugees and/or aliens from dangerous countries, in the wake of murderous radical Islamic-driven terrorist attacks in the U.S. at places like Ft. Hood, Chattanooga, San Bernardino, Orlando and elsewhere.

Nonetheless, about 900 of approximately 24,000 State Department diplomats, Foreign Service officers and civil servants (whose Dissent Channel policy disagreement with the president on this matter was improperly released to media outlets in violation of the governing Foreign Affairs Manual) objected to the president’s order. The objection came even though the State Department is the lead foreign affairs agency in implementing such presidential policies and its personnel serves on the diplomatic front lines overseas screening visa applications.

They claimed the order would, among other things, sour relations with the seven affected countries; inflame anti-American sentiments; and hurt those seeking to visit the United States for humanitarian reasons. Moreover, the four Federal judges in Washington and the 9th Circuit who stalled President Trump’s original order ruled, among other things, that it was unconstitutionally focused on Muslim-majority countries without placing the overall global Muslim population in context or addressing the governing statute giving the president the authority to act.

Americans – including the State Department dissenters, federal judges and others opposed to the president’s action – should consider the following as they evaluate the merits of the revised order which reportedly will also apply to refugees and aliens from the same seven countries:

  • The U.S. Constitution’s Article 2 gives the President the authority to conduct the nation’s foreign affairs. And the Immigration and Naturalization Act, Section 212 F8 USC 82 F gives the President the broad authority to suspend the entry of aliens into the United States when the president deems it in the national interest.
  • According to Pew Research, there are 50 Muslim-majority nations, with the global Muslim population estimated at 1.6 billion. The presidential executive order applies to only seven Muslim-majority nations with a collective population of about 220 million.
  • The U.S. State Department’s congressionally-mandated annual “Country Reports on Terrorism” identifies the governments that sponsor and support international terrorist activities and/or have significant terror groups and activity occurring within their nation’s boundaries. All seven countries listed in the president’s order are listed in this report and threaten U.S. citizens and national security. To achieve their political ends terrorists have used genocide, beheadings, crucifixions, drownings, burnings, hangings, shootings, roof-top tossings and home-made bombs – against innocent civilians in war zones and urban areas.
  • There are ongoing sectarian civil wars between Shia and Sunni Muslims, tribal wars, and/or genocide occurring in 6 of 7 countries (Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen). The State Department lists the other nation, Iran – where chants of ‘Death to America’ are routinely heard – as the world’s leading exporter of terrorism.
  • The U.S. State Department does not have open U.S. embassies or consulates in five of the seven countries (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen). Without onsite U.S. representation, it is extremely difficult to have normal relations with host governments (if they even exist) or to properly and thoroughly scrutinize visa applications of citizens of those countries wanting to visit the United States. And in the cases where it does have representation (Iraq and Sudan), ongoing conflicts make it very difficult as well.

The actions of unelected officials – like the State Department careerists and federal judges who may have violated their own regulations or ignored the governing law or serious conditions in the seven countries affected by the presidential order – may be doing a great disservice to the American people by opposing this presidential action, and they will have blood on their hands if a terrorist, or terrorists, from any of these countries is granted entry and strikes the American homeland while courts adjudicate the president’s order.

The most important job of an elected U.S. President is to keep the American people safe.  And it seems from the circumstances listed above that President Trump has the clear constitutional and statutory authority, responsibility and legitimate reasons to temporarily suspend travel from these seven dangerous nations until current visa vetting procedures are properly evaluated to better ensure that terrorists are not among those refugees and aliens cleared for entrance into the United States.  To do anything less would possibly endanger American lives.

Alert!  Obama Holdover Government Plotting

Several intelligence insiders have come forward over the last few days to describe a shadow government of Obama holdovers leaking information to derail the Trump presidency, with National Security Advisor, Mike Flynn’s resignation its first success.

According to the Free Beacon, Flynn was targeted because he was preparing to “publicize many of the details about the nuclear deal that had been intentionally hidden by the Obama administration as part of its effort to garner support for the deal.”

There are even allegations that former President Barack Obama is himself actively involved, citing his establishment of a command center in Washington and continuing involvement with activist organizations.

Retired Lt. Col. Tony Schaffer, formerly CIA-trained defense intelligence officer, said to Fox Business, “I put this right at the feet of John Brennan, and Jim Clapper and I would go so far as to say the White House was directly involved before they left.

The Washington Free Beacon quoted ‘multiple sources in and out of the White House’ on Tuesday to describe a “secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran.”

The New York Post is suggesting that Obama is running the show with not just whisper campaigns, but actively employing agitators across the nation as well.

It has been reported that Obama has employed an army of as many as 30,000 agitators who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his presidency.  And Obama will command them from his bunker less than two miles from the White House.

Obama is doing it through a network of leftist non-profits led by Organizing for Action.  Organizations that are set up to support a politician are normally disbanded after he leaves office, but not this one.  It is, instead, gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and 250 offices nation-wide.  Breitbart

 

American Muhajideen?

Editor’s note:  What will happen when the Trump administration uncovers these seditious organizations?  Will the 30,000 agitators go rogue?

French Police Flee Armed Mob as Paris Riots Spread

Muslims and leftists continue to riot across France for nearly a week.  The protests, against police brutality, have left a wave of destruction on the streets of Paris with burned-out cars and local shops smashed. Presidential candidate, Marine Le Pen slammed the French government claiming it has become “paralysed.” Le Pen also said, “The government is silent.  A silence that reflects both its cowardice and its impotence.” Breitbart

 

 

Editor’s note:  Former French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, has declared war on Islamist terrorism and has demanded all immigrants should “speak French…live like French people.” The French have seen a great many Muslims that have immigrated into their society without any desire to assimilate.  With de-facto no-go zones spread across the country, the French have literally given up parts of their country to Muslims that do not want to be French.  Mr. Sarkozy is running for president once again.

The Press Ruined Its Own Reputation – CBS Anchor

CBS anchor, John Dickerson, agrees with President Trump that the fourth estate has lost its credibility. “Manhattan-Beltway elites have lost the country,” he said.  “Part of it…is a lot of hysterical coverage about every little last thing that doesn’t warrant it.” Townhall

Editor’s note: The latest polling from Gallup shows that only 32% say they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media.  CNN whining about conservative news outlets getting to ask questions at a presidential news conference, even though they were fair questions, did not help CNN. 

Majority of Americans Think Trump is a Strong Leader

Considering the political divide among Americans, Trump is still considerd a strong and decisive leader who keeps his promises among the majority of Americans.  Gallup, Townhall

Editor’s note: Those Democrats who don’t think Trump cares about their needs are those who probably want their hands held through life’s journey.

 

 

CAIR, ISNA & NAIT Are Radical Front Groups – Canadian Intel

According to Canadian intelligence, Muslim Brotherhood groups, the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), are radical Islamic front groups.  They maintain a continuous position of being victims even though the violence may have been caused by other Muslims.  While the media continues to hound President Trump on Russia, they were silent when Obama became the Muslim Brotherhood’s “fairy godmother.” Conservative Base

Editor’s note:  The Muslim Brotherhood says they plan to conquer Western Civilization from within. To do so, they are using these front groups to acquire credibility among political parties, students and voters.  NAIT is a financial arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, holding many properties, including hundreds of  mosques and schools and using financial pressure to acquire independent mosques.

Experts Turn Out ‘Counterjihad’ Blueprint For America

 by Michael Maloof, Senior Staff Writer, World Net Daily

Washington –

A plan to defeat the “global jihad movement” has been released by a team of national security experts who say it offers a blueprint for a “counterjihad security architecture for America” to confront what they call the “existential struggle of our time.”

The Legacy National Security Advisory Group, founded by retired U.S. Army Major General Paul Vallely under the auspices of his Stand Up America US Foundation claims U.S. foreign policy has fallen short in setting goals for the region under Obama that encompasses the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

“The U.S. has limited national security objectives in the MENA region, but they are important and must be precisely defined,” Vallely told G2Bulletin.

He said the objectives of the blueprint are to defend U.S. diplomatic, intelligence and military assets in the region, keep open the naval, maritime, and commercial sea lanes and defend the free passage of oil and other commercial goods.

In addition, he said, the United States must make sure critical waterways such as the Strait of Hormuz, Bab al-Mandab, the Red Sea and Suez Canal are not controlled by the jihadists or other forces “hostile” to the U.S. and the West.

The plan also calls for defense and support of regional allies to include Egypt, Israel, Jordan and the Kurdish people.

In effect, Vallely said, the United States must seek a balance of power in the MENA region, rebuild the military, and defeat the ISIS – “global jihad movement.”

The Legacy blueprint also said it is important to help create a “balance of power” between Shiite and Sunni Islamic forces, while avoiding actions to further destabilize the region “unless compelled in defense of other core U.S. national security objectives.”

“We must understand that fashionable policies like ‘exporting democracy, COIN (counterinsurgency), winning hearts and minds,’ and ‘nation building,’ are futile among societies of Islamic law (Sharia) and showed no success.” America must move the strategic “Lily Pad” concept and doctrine as articulated by MG Vallely in other published documents.

“Sometimes accepting local strongman rule that supports U.S. and Western interests, even though not democratic, is the lesser of two evils when the alternative would be either chaos or an Islamic jihad-and-Sharia takeover,” the document said.

It also calls for rebuilding the U.S. military “ASAP” (as soon as possible), given that sequestration has “decimated” U.S. military readiness, hindering its efforts to respond effectively to “national security requirements.”

It also said that Sharia law is a threat, calling on the White House to formulate and implement a national security strategy that “defines Islamic law (Sharia) as an enemy threat doctrine.”

“It must be a priority objective of this new National Security Strategy to deter and defeat Islamic jihad globally,” the Legacy document said. “To do that, it will be necessary that U.S. national security leadership understand that the Sharia threat is advanced by way of jihad, which may be kinetic or non-kinetic.”

It also called for the White House and the intelligence community to “remove the jihadist penetration of and influence against the U.S. government, especially at top levels of national security.”

The blueprint particularly singled out Iran with its weapons of mass destruction programs, especially “nuclear and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) programs and international continental ballistic missile delivery systems.

It said these pose an “existential threat to the U.S. mainland as well as regional allies like Israel.”

The Syrian Renaissance (Rebirth, Restoration and Rebuilding of Syria) has just been launched by Stand Up America US Foundation.

F. Michael Maloof, senior staff writer for WND/G2 Bulletin, is a former security policy analyst in the Office of the Secretary of Defense.  Maloof is the author of “A Nation Forsaken–EMP: The Escalating Threat of an American Catastrophe,” the e-book, “ISIS Rising: Prelude to a Neo-Ottoman Caliphate.”

Experts turn out ‘counterjihad’

Concerned because U.S. foreign policy lacks national security objectives for Mideast, N. Africa

President Trump’s First Weeks

Ray DiLorenzo

 

From a NY Magazine article entitled:

‘All the Terrifying Things Donald Trump Did Lately’

“Technically, it’s only been two weeks since Trump became Commander-in-Chief.  But for the president’s detractors, it’s felt like centuries – long medieval centuries chock-full of plague, illiteracy, and barbarians running roughshod through the ruins of the old republic.  But we aren’t actually living in the dark ages (yet).  So we might as well shed some light on what the barbarians have been up to.”

New York Magazine, 2/3/17

Let’s see what “terrifying things” President Trump and his “barbarians” have done lately:

1)  Proposed new tax plan

2)  Cut income taxes (7 brackets to 3)

3)  Lower corporate tax rate to 15%

4)  Repatriation rate of 10% (allow multi-national corporations to repatriate trillions of dollars sitting overseas)

5)  Nominate Judge Gorsuch to Supreme Court

6)  Drafted plan to defeat ISIS

7)  Setup task forces to fight drug cartels, reducing violent crime and attacks on police

8)  Planning border wall construction

9)  Initiate plan to rebuild military

 

Some of the Executive Orders thus far:

1)  Ease the burdens of Obamacare

2)  Freeze regulations

3)  Withdraw U.S. from Trans Pacific Partnership

4)  Federal gov’t hiring freeze

5)  Advancing pipelines

6)  Stop sanctuary cities

7)  Initiate extreme vetting of immigrants from troubled countries

8)  Initiated 5 year lobbying ban for administration officials

President Trump is moving at the speed of the private sector – a speed no politician or bureaucrat has ever seen.  He is doing what he promised while not being daunted by political opposition. People are stunned. Democrats are in shock while the Republican Congress is still chewing on Trump’s inauguration. Trump is leaving multitudes far behind.

We are witnessing an energy never experienced, a dream never realized, an administration emerging that could redefine good government. Of course, many don’t recognize what they have never seen before.

Marine Le Pen Will Make France Great Again

Michael Flanagan

Editor’s note:  Marine Le Pen is a candidate for the presidency of France.  She is currently favored in the polls.

Recently, I traveled to France to speak at a Franco-American friendship gathering assembled to celebrate the inauguration of America’s forty-fifth president.  On that trip, I had the pleasure of having a private dinner with Marine Le Pen and with Major General (Ret) Paul Vallely.  General Vallely was our host and has long been involved in international affairs as they relate to the United States.

Ms. Le Pen was thoughtful, pleasant, informed and a true daughter of France.  She loves her country in that special way that motivates all of us to support her love affair and emulate it in our own lives and for our own country.

Like many Americans, Ms. Le Pen loves everybody but feels that her country is for her countrymen and not a potential residence for anyone in the world who wants to come.  Like many Americans, she believes that France has the right and responsibility to carefully select those who should live among them and does not apologize for this.

Ms. Le Pen questions and largely rejects the belief that a thin veneer of overlords known as the EU Parliament and its financial backers should make all of the rules for half a billion people located among the most diverse and differing ethnicity on the earth. She believes that the French should govern France, not a collection of other Europeans assembled from these differing ethnicity.

Ms. Le Pen rejects collectivism in economic terms as well as political ones. She embraces the free-market and trade deals among nations close and far.  She would like France to reject the Euro and re-establish the French Franc as Great Britain still uses the British Pound.

Ms. Le Pen also is as perplexed, as many Americans are, that these things are in any way controversial – much less hateful as the left calls them.

Ms. Le Pen is running ahead of the pack in the preliminary elections to be held in April.  That election will be shortly followed by the run-off between the top two vote getters. Ms. Le Pen is a shoe-in to be among the top two – in fact, the first.

Interestingly, the second contender will be the right-of-center traditional party, the Republican candidate,  Francois Fillon.  Because Fillon is plagued with personal controversies, he is fading in the pack.  Le Pen is doing all of the right things, and consequently, her numbers are growing daily.

These two contenders on the Right consume well over half of the expected vote.  Consequently, as was quoted to me repeatedly in France, “the Left is finished.”  The last time the national leader of France was as unpopular as Hollande is now, they cut his head off.

Le Pen has been working very hard on her positions and her image, which has been blighted by past sins of her party, the National Front, and by a biased, left-leaning media.  To rebut unfounded attacks on her affection for all Frenchmen, she has secured very favorable statements by Giles-William Goldnadel and by Roger Cukierman, both prominent Jewish leaders in France.

Unlike so many in America, she would be thrilled with an endorsement by our president and believes that his election was the beginning of a long line of leaders all over the world to be cut from the same cloth as President Trump.  The Trump Administration has, so far, been reluctant to get into the mix over there, but their is time, if they are so inclined.  I hope that they seriously consider an endorsement.

Like Trump, she enjoys the support of a cross-section of France.  This may bring out a previously unknown percentage of the vote, until now hidden – a’ la Brexit and Trump.

Young people are enjoying a re-awakening of what it means to be French in its grandest tradition and these folks make up a surprisingly large part of her enthusiastic supporters.  The excitement of youth working for something is both infectious and heart-warming.

Marine Le Pen is on the march and I am hopeful for her success in April.  It will be a shock to the EU and will embolden so many others in Europe and around the world to re-embrace the nation-state as the best means for a peaceful coexistence in the world.

Michael Flanagan is a former Congressman representing the 5th District of Illinois in the 104th Congress.

GLOBALISTS FIGHT PSYCHOLOGICAL WAR OF WORDS AGAINST AMERICA by Michael Cutler

Editor’s Note: From our great friend and regular SUA contributor, Michael Cutler, retired Senior Special Agent of the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) whose career spanned some 30 years. He has testified before well over a dozen congressional hearings.

He hosts “The Michael Cutler Hour” on USA Talk Radio Fridays at 7 p.m. (EST) and is frequently interviewed by broadcast media on various aspects of immigration issues, especially the nexus to national security.

 

 

GLOBALISTS FIGHT PSYCHOLOGICAL WAR OF WORDS AGAINST AMERICA

By Michael Cutler

Borders are a nation’s first line of defense and last line of defense against the enemies of that nation. In fact, it could properly be said that the primary role of our military is to keep America’s enemies as far from our shores (and borders) as possible.

However, “up close and in person,” the issue of border security becomes the domain and responsibility of the Department of Homeland Security and its component agencies charged with border security and the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws from within the interior of the United States.

The report, “9/11 and Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States,” began with this paragraph :

“It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.”

However, border security is a problem for globalists who see in secure borders impediments to their wealth. And, politicians who depend on political campaign contributions, by necessity, must take into account the demands of their campaign contributors, many of whom have globalist objectives.

Organizations such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a host of other special interest groups that depend on the exploitation of the immigration system are eager to fill the campaign coffers of politicians irrespective of whether they are Democrats or Republicans in order to get “the best government money can buy.”

Today news reports on immigration often lack clarity and honesty. Frequently news reports appear to have been written by Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth” and the term “propaganda” comes to mind when considering them.

Consider that “propaganda” has been described thusly:

propaganda |ˌpräpəˈɡandə|
noun
chiefly derogatory information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view: he was charged with distributing enemy propaganda.

the dissemination of propaganda as a political strategy: the party’s leaders believed that a long period of education and propaganda would be necessary.

All too frequently journalists have been participants in efforts to obfuscate the issue of immigration following the lead of Jimmy Carter, originator of the Orwellian term, “undocumented immigrant.” Their news reports foisted on Americans are part of what I have come to refer to as the immigration con game.

President Trump’s executive order to temporarily block the entry of aliens from seven countries parallels the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission. Aliens from those countries cannot be effectively vetted; yet, major news organizations breathlessly exclaimed that aliens who had been issued visas were denied entry into the U.S., blithely ignoring the fact that aliens with valid visas are routinely denied entry into the United States by Customs and Border Protection Inspectors, an issue with which I am intimately familiar.

For the first four years of my 30-year career with the former INS I was an Immigration Inspector at John F. Kennedy International Airport. My article, “Aliens Guaranteed Entry Into The U.S.? – Trump’s executive order on immigration and the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission,” explained how a visa should be simply thought of as a “ticket” that enables an alien seeking U.S. entry to a port of entry and make an application for admission. However, an alien who has been issued a visa is not guaranteed entry into the country. Indeed, aliens do not have an inherent right to enter the U.S.; only American citizens do.

Furthermore, while nearly every news report identified those seven countries as being “majority Muslim countries,” ignored was the fact that the Obama administration had compiled that list of countries because they were identified with terrorism and were therefore extremely problematic.

Unfortunately too many Americans are “drinking the Kool-Aid,” an expression that refers to the deaths of more than 900 people who killed themselves or murdered their children, blindly following the insane exhortations of charismatic cult leader Jim Jones, in what came to be known as “The Jonestown Massacre.”

Those Americans should put down their straws and be relieved, not angered, that for once our government is seeking to protect innocent lives, putting safety ahead of the globalists’ anti-American agenda.
