Feb. 6, 2017 By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of and chief author over at the brilliant blog site Fair and UNbalanced. com – see my Blogroll at the lower right hand column of this page).
Happy start of a new week, everybody! Donald Trump and members of his “administration” have gotten a lot of deserved criticism for Trump’s decision to effectively ban refugee Muslims who wish to come here from six different, primarily Muslim countries. The grounds for this decision were that these people were coming in from countries which have spawned Muslim terrorists. Of course, master liar Press Secretary Sean Spicer was quick to point out that this was not a “Muslim ban” per se. It is very curious that Trump named the countries he did, but omitted Saudi Arabia – the one country which sent by far the most terrorists over here on 9/11, and the country which raised Osama bin Laden. One wonders if Rex Tillerson, the oil magnate, had a hand in these choices, or if they were Trump’s based on his previous business dealings…
In today’s podcast, our resident podcast specialist Burr Deming thoughtfully condemns the rash action taken by that paranoid and unbalanced man who now occupies the White House. He compares other previous incidences of needy refugees being turned away at our borders, and points out how deadly a policy like that was then and could very well be now…
Burr says, “They come to us with the primal hope for survival.
If we turn away because of their religion , we give up our hope of becoming the nation we once promised ourselves.”
