With the wind at his back

The Supreme Court today announced their ruling on President Trump’s travel ban, leaving egg on the face of Hawaii (and more specifically, Attorney General Doug Chin who lead the country in challenging President Trump’s authority to institute the ban. The decision came down 5/4 upholding the restricted travel from eight Muslim-majority countries (out of over 50 by the way). If it had been anti-Muslim bias wouldn’t he have included all Muslim-majority countries? And why would Venezuela be on the list?

Trump is vindicated saying,

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution.”

According to Breitbart.com, Trump also recommitted his promise to defend the United States and vowed to fight for a secure immigration system. His stand on immigration is likely the single biggest issue that won him the presidency. Remember when X-President Obama told President Elect Trump that North Korea would be his biggest problem? No thanks to him and many previous presidents who did nothing but placate and appease “Rocket-man”. But it truly seems the Donald has a handle on that problem or at least is working toward a lasting solution. I just read yesterday that Kim Jong-un in a sign of détente has cancelled an annual “anti-US imperialism” rally marking the start of the Korean War. The month of anti-US Korean War-focused events designed to strengthen nationalism and unity. Now it seems he is wisely more interested in making friends with the USA. He is a dictator, a liar and a thug and most certainly a human-rights abuser, but the whole USA-Korea thing doesn’t seem like the near disaster it was a month ago.

But immigration and everything having to do with visas, the border, etc., is way outta hand. With today’s Supreme Court ruling and the wind at his back, I think Trump’s next move should be to halt all border crossings for as long as it takes for Congress to do their job and clean it up. In The Hill this morning Trump said of all the things we inherited, immigration makes the least sense. It is a hodge-podge of laws put together over years and years.

“We have to change it. It’s so simple:  It’s called, ‘I’m sorry you can’t come in’. You have to go in through a legal process.”

    It is incomprehensible that not only our American citizens who are living at or below the poverty level want to allow more people who live below the poverty level freely into the United States but a large portion of people who should know better want to. Does no one ask why the countries from which these people come are so terribly poor and the people so uneducated? Do these American citizens think that space and money are unlimited? That no matter how many people pour into the United States there will always be more and more money to feed and clothe and educate and give medical care. Does anyone at all question the advisability of admiting people who birth 6, 8, 10, 12 children in a life time, instead of Amerians usual 2 or 3.

    It is also incomprehensible to me that the cities with the largest poor populations, the largest ghetos, the most citizens killing citizens, the most uneducated citizens, are run by Democrats who continue to get elected year after year.

    The Republicans have their hands deep in this mess in wanting to have unlimited access to low wage workers.

    At one time, a very long time ago, schools taught Latin and French, they taught Geography and Civics, they taught Shop and Home Economics. At one time kids had parents and grandparents and uncles and cousins who had come from countries who did not have freedom, where there was no hope for education and a better life, who taught them how lucky they were to live in a country where it was possible to get that kind of an education, to have freedom to live withour fear.

    Then corporations didn’t want the people too educated, didn’t want the people to think that they could do things for themselves, they told the schools to stop educating the kids too far beyond plants and factories and farms. Then the politicians found that people with little knowledge and education could be led in any way the politicians wanted.

    Now we are in a horrible mess of our own making.
