On June 26th, 2017, the Supreme Court of the United States voted to allow most of Trump’s travel ban executive order to go through. I’ll explain what I mean when I say “most” in a bit. For now, I just want to say that I’m very happy that the Supreme Court has finally gotten to this issue and recognized that Trump is acting within his power as POTUS to issue this travel ban order. I knew that it was only a matter of time before the Left was beaten on this one. But now, unto my explanation.
While the Supreme Court has allowed the travel ban to go through, there’s still a catch. “In a per curiam opinion (unanimous decision), the Court partially stayed the injunctions blocking enforcement of executive order 13,780”, according to Breitbart.
The opinion says: “We now turn to the preliminary injunctions barring enforcement of the §2(c) entry suspension. We grant the Government’s applications to stay the injunctions, to the extent the injunctions prevent enforcement of §2(c) with respect to foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States. We leave the injunctions entered by the lower courts in place with respect to respondents and those similarly situated, as specified in this opinion.”
In other words, the government is granted full power to stop lower courts from impeding them from banning people that have no personal or business relationship with anyone or any company in the U.S. So basically, the travel ban goes through when it comes to people that don’t have any solid reason to be here. If a man from, say, Libya wants to visit family here in the next 90 or 120 days (the duration of the ban), he has to prove without a shadow of a doubt that he has family here and isn’t b.s.-ing anyone.
Now, here’s the biggest reason for having this ban: to improve our vetting procedures. While the Left will want you thinking that this ban is there just to be mean to a bunch of poor, harmless Muslim visitors, the reality of the whole situation is not nearly as overdramatic. The ban was ordered by the president as a temporary ban to keep people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from coming to the U.S. for 90 to 120 days, or 3 to 4 months. And the ban is put in place to allow for government agencies to add in or improve new vetting procedures in order to make sure we’re not letting a bunch of terrorists into our country so easily.
Yes, a few are likely to slip past those procedures, but with this, it’s a step towards one of the big promises Trump made during the campaign trail: Make America Safe Again. If we improve vetting procedures in order to keep bad guys from getting through, it means that there is less of a chance of foreign terrorism in the long-run. By no means, does this indicate that there will be no terrorism. As you saw a couple of weeks ago, A TERRORIST TRIED TO SHOOT AND KILL REPUBLICANS DURING A BASEBALL PRACTICE. While the shooter didn’t shout “Allahu Akbar” or declare allegiance to ISIS, he did try to eliminate and terrorize Republicans to keep them from doing their job in Congress. Granted, that counts as home-grown terrorism, but still.
The fact remains that Trump, now thanks to the Supreme Court, is managing to do something his predecessor couldn’t (arguably, didn’t want to) do. And that is keeping America safe by any means necessary and within the bounds of our constitutional law. This is no ban on Islam, as the Left wants you to believe. This is a ban on travelers from countries that are known for supporting terrorism. Granted, there are plenty of other countries left in the Middle East that harbor and create terrorists too, but this ban is a good first step towards making this country safe again.
Let’s not forget: this is only a TEMPORARY ban. Eventually, people from those areas will be able to travel to this country, but by then, we’ll have implemented far better security measures to ensure the safety of our country.
But right now, I’ll simply tally this one in the win column. While there is no flat-out, “you-shall-not-pass” travel ban on these countries, we’re at least making it far more difficult for terrorists to enter the U.S. from now on.
And I’ve known, thanks to God, that this travel ban was more than constitutional for a long time. And I just have to thank God that the Supreme Court finally got to it and arrived to the same logical conclusion.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”
By now you know that Derrick Watson, US District Judge for the District of Hawaii, has stopped Trump’s travel ban. You may not know that the basis for the ruling is NOT Trump’s executive order’s constitutionality, but rather Trump’s comments on CNN during the campaign trail.
In other words, candidate Trump said something back in 2016, which Derrick Watson didn’t like, and now the judge feels like it’s time for revenge.
The constitutionality of the judge ruling is in question – I don’t know what Trump is going to do about it. But clearly the Judge has overstepped his power.
But this Judge’s decision to stop the travel ban on the basis of some comment back in 2016 isn’t the worst part. There is a bigger problem here that I’d like to point out.
And no, I’m not referring to the possibility that another liberal judge might one day stop Trump from sending troops to the Middle East if doing so is in the best interest of our National Security. Yes, this would be a problem. And Watson’s ruling is a problem because he’s setting a precedent in interfering with the Executive Branch of government in its ability to protect Americans. But the problem I’m referring to is so much bigger than that…
You see, our Founding Fathers were right. They were CHRISTIANS who believed man is sinful in nature. The understanding of this key principle based on the Bible has created the most free and prosperous society the world has ever known. The understanding of our sinful nature on the part of our Founding Fathers is the REASON Americans are FREE.
Let me explain.
The Framers, as you know, created the division of powers: Executive, Judicial and Legislative Branches. They also created the division between Federal government and State and Local governments. And in fact, the Framers granted LIMITED powers to our government – State, Federal, Local, Executive, Judicial and Legislative. They all have limited powers according to our Constitution.
Why? Why did the Framers do that?
Because power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Our Founding Fathers knew that when you give too much power to ANYBODY there’s a high chance that that person will ABUSE his power. They gave us checks and balances BECAUSE THEY KNEW man is sinful.
And yes, man is absolutely fallen and inclined to ABUSE whatever power he has. History confirms this fact. Hitler, Stalin, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Un – these are all examples of individuals with ABSOLUTE POWER and no checks and balances. They are also all MURDERERS.
When you remove the restraints from men and give them absolute power, their SINFUL NATURE prevails and they impose TYRANNY.
Liberals like this Hawaiian judge believe that man is not sinful, but rather good in nature. And society makes him bad. Man is a victim of society and he only needs a good government to rule over him. History tells us that’s not true.
Liberalism leads to TOTALITARIANISM
NOT BELIEVING IN OUR SINFUL NATURE LEADS TO TOTALITARIANISM
BELIEVING IN OUR SINFUL NATURE LEADS TO FREEDOM
When you understand this principle, like our Founding Fathers did, then you realize we need checks and balances so that we can all be free and prosper.
Liberals are not only opposing this travel ban – they’re jeopardizing your safety and YOUR FREEDOMS.
There is not one example in history where rulers with absolute power ever restrained themselves and allowed people to be free. Not one example in history.
The Hawaiian Judge is displaying signs of authoritarianism. He’s actually proving Christians are right.
He’s proving liberalism leads to abuse of power and Christianity leads to freedom.
The Judge doesn’t like the travel ban because of what Trump said in 2016 and he’s using HIS POWER to put YOUR LIFE at risk. That, my dear friend, is what totalitarians do. They have ZERO respect for your life. If you give this Judge more power, he’ll abuse it even more. If you remove all restraints from this man, he’ll turn into Hitler or Stalin.
In any case, God is in control. I don’t know why He’s allowing this judge to overstep his power. Perhaps He’s trying to take us back to our Founding Fathers' philosophy. Or perhaps He’s testing Trump. I don’t know.
But I do know that while it’s true that we’re all sinful in nature, we can also free ourselves from sin. When you reject Jesus, you’re a slave – a slave to your desires of power, money, women, sex, drugs, etc. But when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you’re FREE from all these demons.
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”
Coalition Forces attacked ISIS 31 times on Saturday, January 21st, 2017. Note the date, since that was the Secretary of Defense’s, Gen. James Mattis, first day in office. The attacks were on ISIS tactical units, headquarters, tunnels, fighting positions, vehicles, and oil well heads, according to freebeacon.com. And that attack was just Syria. We also attacked ISIS in Iraq, targeting tactical units, vehicles, weapons, a building and other weapons related objects.
This attack is significant. It’s not the plain fact that we attacked ISIS in a rather large strike in one day. It’s the fact that we did that the day after Trump was inaugurated as President of the United States. That was his and the Secretary of Defense’s first day in office. They clearly mean to show that they mean to get things done from day 1, and that, they did. The larger war on Terror will continue. But ISIS no longer has a friend that plays the professional wrestling-style opposition in the White House. Now, they have people that are majorly pissed off at them and intend to eliminate them from the face of the Earth. The President’s words, not mine.
Not to mention that Trump is looking to enact a temporary ban on people entering the U.S. from terrorist-related nations such as just about any country in the Middle East. Which means that this invasion is set to be stopped, at least in ISIS’s second biggest target.
Trump is serious about fulfilling his campaign promises. He wants to make America safe again and will stop at nothing to get that done. We could be looking at, and likely are looking at, THE ASSURED END OF ISIS. They now find a serious threat in control of the most powerful nation on Earth. Trump had ordered the Pentagon to come up with a strategy to defeat ISIS within 30 of his inauguration via an executive order. And whatever strategy the Pentagon will come up with, Trump will choose the most effective and likely fastest way to eliminate them. He’s not joking about this. Like he isn’t joking about the wall. The Left has been doubtful about Trump accomplishing anything since he first announced his candidacy for president.
The Left thought he was a joke back then. Don’t get me wrong, they still think he’s a joke. But now, he has the power to actually get things done, and that thought terrifies the Left. As it should ISIS.
One time when looking through Facebook a year or so ago, I saw a funny post. It was a picture of Ronald Reagan and the caption read: ‘If I was president, ISIS would be WASWAS.’ As if to say that ISIS would no longer be around if Reagan were still president. And I both laughed and agreed with the post. But that post can now become a fairly accurate reality. It won’t be Reagan that makes ISIS into WASWAS. It will be Trump that does that. I laughed at the post because it highlighted Obama’s incompetence (or unwillingness) in fighting ISIS and his allowing ISIS to grow as much as it has. I agree with the post when it says that Reagan would’ve eliminated ISIS already. But now, we have a president much like Reagan. We have a president that will make absolutely sure that ISIS WILL BE WASWAS in due time.
He’s even fighting the lower judges on this issue. You see, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Court is trying to fight back against the aforementioned executive order to temporarily ban people entering the U.S. from 7 terror-related countries by saying that ‘it’s a ban on Muslims’ or a ‘ban on religious freedom’. Neither of which is true. Yes, this ban affects Muslims coming into the country from those nations, but if it were a ban on Muslims, then ALL Muslim nations, not just Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, and Sudan would be a part of the proposed ban.
But the Left wants to make this about race. Trump’s racist because he wants to keep refugees out. He wants to doom these people because they’re Muslim. Yadda yadda yadda. In reality, as we all know, Trump is trying to keep ISIS from easily entering the U.S. He doesn’t know who or how many of these refugees are members of ISIS, but he’s not gonna wait for an attack to occur, one that will lead to potential massive casualties, to say ‘Oh, that one. That one was in ISIS. Dang, oh well.’ No, he will make sure to make it as impossible as can be for ISIS to effectively carry out attacks on American people.
But in the end, we all know it will go through because the Left doesn’t have the power to stop such an executive order. They can only delay it. Which will lead to them potentially losing more seats (if that’s even possible) in Congress come 2018.
The American people have spoken. They want ISIS gone. They want Muslims extremely vetted. They want immigrants to come in legally and assimilate to the American lifestyle. And they are sick and tired of the Left keeping Washington from actually working, because for the first time in God knows how long, Washington can actually get to work to benefit the American people and not just the elite class. And eradicating ISIS and vetting Muslims coming in from terror-related nations is one of the crucial steps to doing that.
‘No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from me.’
You may have heard that last week House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said about Trump’s travel ban ‘Trump is going out there and saying “This is keeping the American people safe” and that has a market’.
So, according to Nancy Pelosi, keeping the American people safe isn’t the government’s job but rather it’s a ‘market’. In her mind, Trump isn’t trying to keep you safe, in fact, keeping you safe isn’t that important and in any case he’s treating you like a customer.
If you ask me, the ONLY reason she said that is because THAT IS THE LIBERAL MINDSET. They don’t think your life is important – they kill babies, save whales and implemented death panels with Obamacare. You don’t matter to the democrats. You only matter if they reach you as the market target that you are and they’re able to fool you to vote for them. You are the despicable voters who they, the elites, have to appeal to with all sorts of tricks to get your vote. In fact, it’d be preferable if elections were eliminated altogether and they didn’t have to seduce you in any way. Authoritarian rule is every leftist’s DREAM.
You see, government’s only two responsibilities are
The ruling class has determined that protecting YOU isn’t a priority – money (theirs) and power (also, theirs) are.
You’re expendable – particularly if you’re a Christian conservative. With Jihadists coming in, the main target will be Jews and Christians, who, as it turns out, are the LEFT’S MAIN TARGET as well.
Islam and the left have ONE COMMON ENEMY: JESUS CHRIST
Without the travel ban Muslim terrorists are able to come into this country much more easily, and kill Christians and Jews much faster. The more Christians and Jews they kill, the fewer conservative votes we get and the easier for the left to win elections.
Democrats have done this before - through the KKK they have MASSACRED Republicans.
Islamist Jihadists are using the left in America to enable them to enter the US. And leftists in America are using Islamist Jihadists to massacre its opposition here at home.
And all for what?
Money is all democrats care about.
There’s an interesting story in the Bible in Matthew 21:33-46. Jesus is telling the story of a wealthy farmer who planted a vineyard. He took good care of his farm – he fenced it, dug a winepress, put up a watchtower, and then he turned it over to his workers so he could go off on a trip.
In this story, pretend you’re the wealthy farmer, the farm is our country and the workers are the democrats.
As the story goes, when it was time to harvest, the wealthy farmer sent his servants to collect his profits. But the workers beat him up. The farmer then sent another servant, who the workers killed. He sent another one, who the workers threw stones at, though he managed to escape. Finally the farmer decides to send his own son ‘surely, they’ll respect my son’. But guess what happened? The workers killed the farmer’s son so they’d be able to take the farm for themselves.
As Jesus was telling the story, he tells the crowd that the farmer decided to come back from his trip and take care of his business. Jesus asked his audience: ‘what do you think the farmer should do?’. The audience response: ‘kill the workers and then find another group of workers who will respect the owner and hand over the profits when it’s time’.
And yes, that's what the farmer should do. And that's what we should do.
The moral of the story is this: the government belongs to US, the American people. Democrats are the corrupt workers of this story, willing to STEAL your property and your freedoms.. They MUST BE DEFEATED so we can take OUR PROFITS when it’s time.
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
“‘The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
this was the Lord’s doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes’?
Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits. And the one who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him’
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
