What the MSM isn’t telling you about Trump’s immigration stay

Protesters against immigration stayBecause the media is working overtime to out-and-out lie, or just subtly misrepresent, Trump’s immigration stay, ordinary people are having to do the media’s job. That’s what my friend John did, and he came up with something simple, straightforward, and singularly illuminating:


  1. Yes, the MSM is dishonest BUT it’s more what they’re “conveniently” leaving out of the conversation that’s important.
  2. All of Europe continues to have severe issues with Muslim’s unwillingness to assimilate.  They would love to put the “genie back in the bottle” and start anew.  They cannot.
  3. We’ve had our own issues (9/11, Ft Hood, Boston Marathon, San Bernardino, The Orlando Nightclub, The Ft Lauderdale Airport, etc).  And according to the Pew Research Center… 7% of Muslims in America say suicide bombings are sometimes justified and 1% say they are often justified in these circumstances.  That means that 240,000 Muslims in America think suicide bombings MAY be OK .
  4. Trump’s 120 day moratorium is a timeout to figure out how we can avoid the USA becoming Europe and how he can keep Americans safe. (that includes the majority of American Muslims).
  5. I’m not sure it’s the “perfect solution”.  I’m not even sure there is a “perfect solution”.  But, there is unquestionably a SERIOUS  issue that needs to be addressed.

Is there really a problem in Europe?

Yes. Muslims are NOT assimilating anywhere in Europe.  And in their case, non assimilation equals violence.  Every country would LOVE to put the “genie back in the bottle” and figure out how to avoid the mess.

  • In France, Muslims make up 10% of the general population but 60% of the prison population.  74 per cent of French citizens view Islam as “intolerant” and “incompatible” with French values.
  • A 2016 poll of Muslims living in Great Britain shows: the following: 52% want homosexuality to be ILLEGAL, 47% think gays should not be able to be teachers, 39% say women should always obey their husbands, 1 out of 3 refused to condemn people who take part in violence against those who mock the Prophet Muhammad and one-quarter said they favored replacing the British legal system with Islamic law.
  • A headline from a recent Swedish newspaper? 77% of the rapes in Sweden committed by 2% Muslim male population.
  • And there’s a real reason why Merkel is in trouble in Germany.  From 2014 to 2015, police statistics show a 158.4% increase in crimes committed by NON-Germans.
  • What does a spokesman for the Czech president think about Trump’s move? “Trump protects his country,” Ovčáček wrote in a tweet, “he’s concerned with the safety of his citizens. Exactly what EU elites do not do”.

What exactly happened on Saturday?

325,000 people from foreign countries came into the United States yesterday, and 109 people were detained for further questioning. Most of those people were moved out. We’ve got a couple dozen more that remain.

How did Trump pick those 7 countries for the immigration stay?

He didn’t.  Obama did.  According to the draft copy of Trump’s executive order, the countries whose citizens are barred entirely from entering the United States is based on a bill that Obama signed into law in December 2015.Obama signed the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act as part of an omnibus spending bill. The legislation restricted access to the Visa Waiver Program, which allows citizens from 38 countries who are visiting the United States for less than 90 days to enter without a visa.

Don’t the 7 countries listed in the ban make up pretty much all of the world’s Muslims?

HA!  Not even close!  When you add the Islamic populations of all 7 countries listed in the ban, we’re looking at 14% of the world’s Muslim population.
