Mr Trump signed the order at the Pentagon after a ceremony to swear in Gen James Mattis as defence secretary.
During the ceremony, he said: "I'm establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people."
"We only want to admit those into our country who will love deeply our people"
He does ask for the impossible sometimes doesn't he? :)
My local municipal came to me 3+ years ago and announced that we then needed to increase our room rates to include a 10% tax for them, when I questioned 'effective from when?" they replied "immediately" ... I told them, pretty much, to "get out of here, we've got room rates published and loaded all over the web, we've got advance and confirmed bookings already paid for and we need time to change things, I told them we'd do it from 01 January 2014 and they agreed that was a sensible option.
So Trump signs an executive order with IMMEDIATE effect whilst some of those nationalities were already in the air en-route to USA whilst others are holding approved visas, I 'get' Trump, he's got these personal passions that he's firing from the hip regarding, I'd be likely to act similarly and for such a reason I would never apply to be leader of my country for fear of offending.
And I doubt it has been taken in to account that some of the major airlines, such as Etihad, Emirates and Qatar employ crew members of the affected nationalities, I can just imagine a flight's pilots being detained upon arrival :)
And there's a wonderful pic doing the rounds on the web today of a protester holding a placard:
"IF IT WASN'T FOR IMMIGRATION TRUMP WOULDN'T HAVE ANY WIVES"
"The person responsible for the shooting down of flight MH17 is the Russian President"
I do not think the Russian President authorized the shoot down of the plane. But, I guess by providing the hardware to do so, you are guilty as a collaborator.
"The hijacker of flight MH370 was Malaysian"
There is no definite proof that the plane was hijacked. A possible catastrophic event could have occurred on the plane. Like the overnight flight of the plane from Brazil to France, that was shown to have experienced sensor reading malfunctions.
From the local paper today, it notes that from the last ten terrorist events in the USA starting from 2001, the last eight involved a US citizen (some born in the USA and some naturalized). The ones born in the USA are traitors and the ones naturalized are guilty of perjury and also traitors.
Putin has to be regarded as an 'accessory to terrorism' and if you have a search ... if he were tried in Malaysia he could face the death penalty.
Regarding MH370, and in a previous life I did air traffic control (ATC), when one ATC unit is controlling an aircraft that suddenly falls silent whilst disappearing off the screen causes a reaction from the unit, indeed from the individual controller.
The dead giveaway, excuse any pun, with MH370 is that it disappeared off screen falling silent whilst on handover from one ATC unit to another, i.e. one controller had instructed it "call next unit, squawk 7654 (or whatever), have a nice day, bye bye" and cleared his desk of it whilst the next ATC unit wouldn't have noticed it missing because it had never called them and, by then, the transponder (squawk box) had been switched off causing it to disappear off secondary radar monitors.
It seems to me that the seven countries were chosen because they are unstable (excluding Iran) with no central government control. Indonesia has a very large Muslim population along with India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh(formerly east Pakistan) that far exceeds these seven nations. Why are they not included?
My guess is that Iran was included to appease Israel and to revamp the nuclear deal.
"Lastly, the victory of the America's first war against Islamic terrorists resulted in the permanent establishment of US military bases in the Mediterranean, the triumph of defending our honor over paying their tributes and, most importantly, shifted American political thought away from pacifism and treaties which ruled the early founding father's Federalism to one of offense and in the words of Thomas Jefferson - "peace through the medium of war"."
"It all goes back to the first Barbary War", ....
-that is true, between 1590 and 1780 thousands of europeans were taken into slavery in muslim North Africa, islamists have a long record of kidnapping and murdering christians and jews
