During his campaign, Trump called for a ban on all Muslims from entering the United States. He continually repeated the simple and definitive statement. He has now issued an ‘executive order’ to complete his promise; well, almost.
Trump banned entry by citizens from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya, but one rather significant country was omitted; Saudi Arabia. Trump previously indicated that he believed that all Muslims were terrorists. He has once again been exposed in a lie. 15 of the 19 terrorists who hijacked jetliners on September 11, 2001 were Saudi nationals. So why are Saudis allowed virtually unrestricted entry into the United States? Why are they the exception to Trump’s rule against Muslims? You know that I have the answer, and you will only hear the truth from me.
Okay, once again here are the facts that politicians and the mainstream media will not expose.
Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State is Rex Tillerson. Tillerson has very close ties with Vladimir Putin, but he also has a strong relationship with the Saudi royal family. Tillerson is the CEO of Exxon-Mobile, and Exxon is heavily invested in Russia and Saudi Arabia. The U.S. has a long-standing relationship with the Saudis, and if Trump lifts sanctions from Russia, as we know he will, Exxon will increase their wealth exponentially. Profit before people.
Trump has many diseases, and one of them is Islamophobia. His inhumane action has been denounced all over the world, but not by his fellow fascists in the GOP. Paul Ryan, who was once Trump’s greatest detractor is now a hypocrite and serving his master. He believes that Trump’s action is very understandable, and the ‘right thing to do.’
In December of 2015, when Trump first proposed his ban, this was Ryan’s statement.
“Freedom of religion is a fundamental constitutional principle. It’s a founding principle of this country,” Ryan told reporters following a closed-door morning meeting at the Republican National Committee in December of 2015. “This is not conservatism. What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for. And more importantly, it’s not what this country stands for.”
This was Ryan’s most recent lie today, in defense of his fuhrer.
“This is not a religious test and it is not a ban on people of any religion,” said AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for Ryan. Really?
Ryan is almost as capable as Kellyanne Conway in his attempts to be Trump’s spin doctor. The only real difference is that we have past definitive statements by Ryan which expose his penchant for lying.
There is not a single respectable member of the Republican Party. They are immoral, liars, and hypocritical. You voted for them and real Americans are stuck with them. Shame on you.
