  "On 2002-07-04, at the Los Angeles International Airport counter of El Al, the Israeli national air-line, a Muslim named Hesham Mohamed Ali Hadayet started shooting at people. He killed 2. The FBI initially said that 'there's nothing to indicate terrorism'. However, after it came to light that Hadayet may have been involved with al Qaeda and was known for his hatred for Israel, the FBI finally did classify this as a terrorist act." --- Robert Spencer 2005 _The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)_ pg206

  "One inevitable consequence of active trade was selection by merit.   This ran against the parity principle (equality of results), but it was not possible to impose uniformity of performance.   Some craftsmen simply did better work & attracted buyers beyond their capacity.   At the same time, the very effort to restrain competition by limiting access to mastership meant talent unemployed.   It did not take much to bring together such masters & journeymen.   Since the journeymen were often not permitted to work in the master's city shop (limits on size), they worked en chambre or in the suburbs.   Here was the beginning of putting-out & division of labor, with substantial gains in productivity." --- David S. Landes 1999 _The Wealth & Poverty of Nations_ pg 43

Phil Haney, other national security researchers say president Trump has made a good start, but should go further in efforts to block entry of terrorists, other hostile foreign operatives, and USA citizens and green card holders from going to & fro training camps of those intending to initiate force against USA citizens and the USA more generally
"...He explained another danger posed by Muslim immigration is the importation of large-scale communities that oppose the USA Constitution and wish to impose Islamic Shariah law.   This 'settlement jihad' could radically change the American way of life even more than a terrorist attack, Haney warned.   'As with the other Muslim countries in the region, all seven of these core countries support Shariah law, which has many points of conflict with the Constitution and with state and federal civil law.', Haney said.   'We also know that when they come to America, immigrants from pro-Shariah countries do not leave Shariah law behind but bring it with them to their new home.   Meanwhile, organizations such as the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America openly promote Shariah law in America.   The word Shariah is even in the AMJA's name in Arabic.   This violates article 6 of the USA Constitution and should be addressed sooner rather than later.'..."

Richard A. Viguerie: Neil Gorsuch nomination is one more Trump campaign promise kept
"'Every day since Jan 20 it gets better and better for conservatives.   At this stage of Trump's Presidency, it's far better than Reagan's.', said CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie in a statement released to NewsMax.   'Supreme court justice Antonin Scalia's death was the single most important event which led to Donald Trump's victory.', observed Mr. Viguerie.   'A [leftist] filibuster of president Trump's nomination of supreme court nominee Neil M. Gorsuch would be an attempt by the left to undo the results of the election.   However, the [leftist] special interest groups will demand and insist that the Dem/Leftist/Red senators go all out to keep judge Gorsuch off the supreme court.', said Viguerie.   'This battle will be unlike any court battle in modern times.   And when the battle is done conservatives will win and liberals will be exhausted and weakened for the next battle.   Not in my political life (over 55 years) have conservatives been as excited as they are with the Trump presidency.', concluded Mr. Viguerie.   And Mr. Viguerie is not alone in that assessment..."

"Iran has long boasted of having missiles that can travel 2,000 kilometers [1Mm] (1,200 miles), placing much of the Middle East, including Israel, in range.

James P. Pinkerton _Breitbart_
president Trump lays down the law threats from Red China, Russia, Iran, Muslim terrorists
"...The basic thrust of Trump's idea can be stated simply: Health insurance is important, but health itself is more important...   the reality is that health insurance of any kind is only as good as the treatment system backstopping it.   Or, to put it another way, if the cure or treatment for what ails the patient doesn't exist, then all the insurance in the world won't do him or her any good.   Without the right therapy or antidote, a health-insurance card is just a piece of plastic.   Thus we can see: In the crunch of a medical crisis, it's usually the science, not the finance, that spells the difference between life and death...   Why not turn that sort of virtuous medical life-saving -- and, at the same time, as a happy by-product, cost-cutting -- into a sustained national policy?...   First, the prices of existing medical drugs are too high.   Second, other countries have been freeloading on Uncle Sam.   Third, the best way to reduce prices is to expand supply.   Fourth, the best way to to expand supply is to cut taxes and de-regulate.   Fifth, more drug production ought to occur inside the United States of America.   Sixth, the single best way to improve health is by developing new medical cures..."

"...Knowles warned her audience not to fall for left-wing propaganda.   'When you see something on TV or on Periscope in regard to these protests that are going on, just know in reality this is a very small number as compared to everybody in the United States of America.', she cautioned.   'We have to stop falling for those traps, and those Saul Alinsky traps, Leo, like the '#MuslimBan'.   Those are hash-tags that Saul Alinsky [and Mao and Hitler and Stalin] would be proud of because it just keeps the propaganda going.'   Hohmann noted [Obummer] engaged in something close to a Syrian Christian ban during his presidency, as less than 1% of Syrian refugees admitted were Christian despite the fact that Christians face persecution in Syria.   But the left never protested the relative lack of Christian refugees; they saved all their vitriol for Trump's [pause in issuance of visas to residents of countries with a lot of terrorist activity].   Hohmann isn't even willing to say all the protesters have good intentions.   'I don't even know if I can write them off as gullible and stupid.', he said.   'I believe a lot of them are part of this agenda, this USA-hating, Christian-hating, Jewish-hating agenda.   So they may not be Islamic themselves, but they share a lot of the same values that come straight out of the Quran, which [include] anti-Semitism and anti-Christianity.'...   Hohmann also believes leftist and globalist elites, such as George Soros, are getting nervous because Trump is refusing to play by their rules [but is (so far) playing within the limits set by the USA constitution and laws]..."

100 days of Donald Trump: after decades of discord Republicans finally find their harmony
"As the dust settles from Donald Trump's 'bomb-shell' announcement of the appointment of judge Neil Gorsuch to the supreme court on Tuesday night, a divided American political landscape has emerged once again.   Dem/Red/Leftist groups are quite literally losing it over Trump's actions as president.   They cry, scream, yell, protest, boycott, threaten [break, burn/torch, punch, bludgeon] and vow to 'resist' [the USA constitution, culture, economy, and laws].   It's almost gotten to the point where we have to wonder how much worse their behavior can possibly get...   These are desperate measures from a desperate group of people.   Dems/Leftists/Reds have to know in their hearts that what they're attempting to accomplish is doomed from the start.   And their rancor is incredibly harmful to the country as a whole..."

"'Muslims discriminate against gays.   Islamic law is clear on the subject, and being gay is a direct violation of it.   In some Muslim countries, being gay is a crime punishable by death.', said Vincent Tolliver, a former Democratic House candidate in Arkansas, and prospective chairman of the Democratic National Committee.   The reaction of the Democratic Party was as swift as it was willfully blind; Toliver was promptly told he was 'no longer a candidate for DNC chair'.   How Toliver can be barred unilaterally from running for DNC Chair is unclear since the party rules allow anyone who gains the signatures of 20 Democratic National Committee members to stand for chairman, so let's delve a little deeper into what is going on in the DNC chairman's race..."

Rex Tillerson has been confirmed as secretary of State -- time to clean house at Foggy Bottom
"...there are vacancies at the top of major department offices, including those responsible for the Mideast and Europe.   The good news is, many of those vacancies are because senior Foreign Service officers were fired from top positions last week, signaling an intent by the Trump administration to clean house at the Department of State.
 
And a serious house cleaning is desperately needed at Foggy Bottom.
 
The State Department has about 7,600 Foreign Service officers and 11K civil servants according to NYTimes and around 1K of them recently put their names to a harshly worded letter criticizing president Trump's executive order pausing entry of purported refugees and other visa holders from Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Libya and Yemen from entering the United States of America for at least 90 days.
 
Foreign Service officers are not supposed to criticize American policy publicly, yet by sharing the letter with the media that is exactly what these disloyal public employees are doing.
 
What's more, the reasons for the pause in immigration from the seven countries are largely matters related to the failures of the diplomatic corps under the Obummer/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy to which they are apparently wedded.
 
Yemen, Syria, Sudan and especially Libya all became failed states on their watch, and the situation in Somalia has spiraled further into tribal and Islamist chaos during the Obummer years.
 
The signers of the letter seem to forget that Somalia became a failed state during Bill Clinton's presidency and while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State thousands of completely [unvetted/unscrutinized/uninvestigated/unscreened] Somalians were brought to the United States of America courtesy of the [USA tax-victim] to commit dozens of terrorism-related crimes.
 
Back in 2012 Obummer's Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the senate Intelligence committee that, 'Iran's intelligence operations against the United States of America, including cyber capabilities, have dramatically increased in recent years in depth and complexity.'   Yet the Obama State Department, led by secretaries of State Clinton and Kerry made it vastly easier for Iranians to travel to the United States of America.
 
Iran's intelligence service includes 30K people who are engaged in covert and clandestine activities that range from spying to stealing technology to terrorist bombings and assassination, according to a Pentagon report reviewed by our friend Bill Gertz.
 
The report concluded that Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security, known as MOIS, is 'one of the largest and most dynamic intelligence agencies in the Middle East'.
 
Iran's intelligence is also cooperating with al Qaeda despite the Sunni-Shiite differences in religious ideology.   'Cooperation between Iran and al-Qaeda is based on their shared opposition to USA hegemony in the region—Iraq and Afghanistan, chiefly—and dates to the 1990s.', the report said according to Gertz.
 
'Iranians engage in two types of terrorist attacks.', the report said.   'One type includes sabotage, espionage, and bombing of target locations, while the other involves the assassination of dissidents of the Islamic Republic of Iran.   Both are perpetrated inside and outside of Iran.'
 
Between 1979 December and 1996 May, a total of 17 Iranians were assassinated by the MOIS, including the 1980 July murder in Bethesda, MD, of Ali Tabatabaei, the Iranian Embassy press attaché in the United States of America under the Shah of Iran.
 
However, according to some 1K of our career diplomats and State Department employees, we need more Iranians in the United States of America, because after all, foreign travelers inject nearly $250G into the American economy and support more than 1M [low-paying] jobs.
 
Asked to respond to the letter, White House press secretary Sean Spicer had a stern message for State Department employees opposed to President Trump's executive order banning immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries: 'Either get with the program or they can go.'
 
Sean Spicer was right, and secretary of State Rex Tillerson's first order of business at the State Department should be to eliminate the Fifth Column in his own building by showing the door to the signers of the letter criticizing President Trump's executive order pausing travel from terrorist hot-spots to the United States of America."

Jonah Goldberg _Jewish World Review_
why nominations of judges (and especially for the supreme court) continue growing more contentious
"After successfully delivering the secret knock and password, a beleaguered, unshaven older man walks into the bunker, stomping out the cold from his feet on the way in.   He walks over to one of the garbage-can fires, where his younger yet battle-hardened comrades are gathered, strategizing about the fight to come.   As the grizzled veteran rubs his hands over the flames, his eyes glinting in the firelight, he says to them, wistfully, 'You know, supreme court nomination fights weren't always like this.'   It's not quite that bad yet in Washington, but the year is young and the fight over Neil Gorsuch, president Trump's nominee for the supreme court, has just begun.   Whenever there is a supreme court vacancy, a preemptive wave of exhaustion comes over me.   It's the same arguments every time.   Some process arguments migrate from one party to another depending on which side is on defense or offense.   'The nominee deserves a speedy hearing and confirmation.', each side yells when their guy is in the White House.   'We have an obligation to take the advise-and-consent role seriously and cannot rush the process.', each side insists when the other team controls the White House.   Each party has an endless supply of quotes to throw at the other, proving their hypocrisy...
Nominations of judges have become more contentious because more and more judges violate their oath of office by eschewing the plain language of the USA constitution and laws, the published reasoning of the founders, to advance their own agendas.   In doing so, they exercise power the constitution does not recognize.   And, in doing so, they intrude into individuals' lives in ways the founders never intended, making each criminal case and law-suit more of a live-or-die, prosperity-or-poverty, productivity-or-extractive matter.   This, in turn, has piled up more and more incentives for more disputes to be dragged through the courts and prosperity for more sheisters, while impoverishing and harming the health and prosperity of many others.
 
Of course, each nominee should be thoroughly investigated, for competence and ethics (not just the somewhat bizarre "legal ethics", but actual, person-to-person ethics). But that should not be artificially dragged out, either.
 
As to Merrick Garland, he was properly considered by Republicans (classical liberals and RINOS) and promptly rejected as corrupt before interviews in open committee were scheduled. Robert Bork was a hybrid case in which the Dems/Reds/Leftists rejected him before the hearings, held the hearings as a publicity and campaign event, and badgered him over non-sense until Bork and the Republicans gave up. Note, that, as Jonah G. recognizes, the Leftists/Reds/Dems did not reject him because he would violate his oath of office, but because he would NOT violate his oath of office in order to advance their agenda, but would keep his oath and block their agenda.
 
If forced to fix blame on the primary cause of this mess, it was some time around 1900, when regressive judges started issuing opinions and verdicts in contradiction to the USA constitution and the facts of the case. Yes, the USA constitution does explicitly recognize the right to privacy. No, it has little to do with abortion; it was simply abused as a flimsy pretext, when more substantive arguments might even have served to support abortion within certain limitations within the constitution and laws and more generally agreed on by the public...jgo

one developing test of president Donald Trump
"Donald Trump is about to get a tough test of his presidential leadership, with no true-or-false or multiple choice questions.   Every new president gets the test, usually administered by international creeps and bad guys.   There's no fudging the answers.   Reality is the teacher, grading on a steep curve, and presidents pass or fail.   There's no soft grading.   Iran is determined to build the Islamic bomb, and the mullahs got [Barack Hussein Obummer's] number [or complicity] early on.   Two days after a different kind of president took the oath of office, Iran welcomed him by firing a medium-range ballistic missile believed capable of carrying a nuclear weapon, in defiance of United Nations Resolution 2231 which endorsed [Obummer's] one-sided 'deal' with Iran.   The missile traveled 630 miles, well within range of inviting targets, before [being destroyed by the ground crew].   The Iranian government said the test was a success.   A series of tests last year, conducted by Iran's Revolutionary Guard, caused the usual international concern.   Several of the missiles bore the favorite threat of the mullahs, in this case with the slogan painted on the missile in Hebrew, of 'death to Israel'.   This, too, was considered by several of the signatories of [Obummer's 'deal'] with the mullahs to be in violation of Resolution 2231.   President [Obummer's 'deal'] with Iran [claims to be] meant to restrain the mullahs' nuclear-weapons attempt to build the Islamic bomb, but in fact [seems to be constructed to help and encourage their efforts to manufacture nuclear weapons and delivery systems].   The UN resolution 'calls upon Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic-missile technology'.   The mullahs were once barred from developing ballistic missiles, but [Obummer] softened the restrictive language during negotiations [instead resulting in a 'deal' encouraging Iran to develop nuclear weapons and delivery systems].   These were some of the negotiations that president Trump, as a candidate, scorned as the work of stupid people [or perhaps they were simply bright but gullible or malevolent]...   Mark Twain observed that 'action speaks louder than words, but not nearly as often', and there's a growing consensus in the USA senate that Mark Twain's observation is a perfect description of the Iran policy [Obummer] bequeathed to his successor.   Lots of talk, with lots of wiggle room, with a minimum of positive action..."

how does 8M deportations sound?
1M deportations sound would be a good start, and would take care of many, but not all, of the initiators of force and fraud, while minimally encouraging other illegal aliens to leave voluntarily before being arrested. 5M deportations would be a righteous middling effort, worthy of praise, getting rid of the lesser criminals and encouraging their relatives and associates whose only crime was illegal entry or visa-overstay to leave, while encouraging others to leave voluntarily before arrest. 8M is a range beginning to be very difficult, but probably worth some additional effort to sort out the illegal aliens from their legally-resident extended relatives, etc., while encouraging others to leave voluntarily before arrest and extending some generosity to the most worthy. To reach the total of 12M-30M illegal aliens would be so extremely costly and difficult to sort out that it is merely a fond hope combined with generosity...jgo

  "With transmitted images, someone else [usually] filters & manages the image mixture.   In television, directors & camera crews decide on the camera angles, sound effects, & what to include & edit out -- decisions that strongly influence the impressions received by audiences.   However, by the same token, these processes often can give aspirants better control over their packaged performances than their live ones, because of the improvements editing offers." --- Irving Rein, Philip Kotler & Martin Stoller 1997 _High Visibility_ pg 238
