How might a future historian view the massive protests of President Trump’s temporary travel ban? Given that I have yet to see a sign disputing the President’s legal authority, I can only assume that these demonstrations are entirely about President Trump’s refusal to make America more Islamic. At least in the minds of these demonstrators, talk of terrorism seems to be just a subterfuge to keep Muslims out.

Let me suggest that our future historians would view matters differently from current interpretations. Many would probably categorize the demonstrations as mass hysteria. The Salem Witch Trials (1692-3) perhaps most famously illustrate such mass hysteria but countless others existed in which seemingly normal people suddenly “lost it.” For example, during the mid-14th century Black Plague bands of religious zealots—often called Flagellants—hoping to escape the Plague roamed the country side dragging crosses and whipping themselves senseless as penance for their sins. In parts of Europe during 1518 there were outbreaks of the “Dancing Plague”–otherwise normal folk without any apparent reason danced without rest for a month with some dying of stroke, heart attack or exhaustion.

Comparing the Flagellants to airport demonstrators may seem overly harsh but calibrated by any measures of rationality and self-interest, the parallel is appropriate. This is willful blindness, a rejection of plain-to-see reality on a grand scale that hints of mental illness. Are those seeking to roll out the red carpet for Muslims aware of what’s occurring in France, Germany, Great Britain, Sweden and elsewhere in Europe when millions of un-vetted, self-selected Muslim refugees arrive? In fact, a recent poll of 100,000 people in 10 European nations found that on average those opposing Muslim immigration out-number those in favor by about 2 and a half to one (at most, 32% percent—Spain–favored more immigration). If these counties could back the clock, how many of them would welcome this exodus from the Middle East? I would love to ask the agitated Jewish demonstrators why so many of their French brethren are fleeing France for Israel or why so many no longer wear their Yarmulkes in public.

Particularly remarkable about this madness is the hysterical vitriol hurled at those defending Trump’s travel ban. Put in the format of a classic joke:

A Hasidic rabbi, a drag Queen and a Holy Roller walk into a bar to have a drink. While waiting for the bartender, conversation turns to recent immigration from the Middle East. The rabbi expresses concern about historic Muslim anti-Semitism. The drag Queen notes that the Qur’an calls for killing gays. The Holly Roller recounts how Muslims have slaughtered thousands of Christians and are thus never to be trusted.

The bartender has been on the sly listening on this conversation, comes over and announces that they are not welcome at this bar since policy is not to serve haters, Islamophobes, fascists, hate crime perpetrators, Nazis, neo-Nazis, sexists, racists, members of the alt-right, xenophobes and anybody who rejects the American tradition of respect for all religions and inclusion. “We believe in tolerance, so take your hate elsewhere,” he emphatically adds.

The three immediately leave and seek refuge in a nearby Country/Western bar and watch Fox News while getting drunk on cheap beer and harmlessly talk sports.

Imagine the Sioux Indians during the 1880’s debating sending a tribal delegation to New Orleans or Galveston to welcome German and Swedish immigrants, including helping them to fill out the paperwork to claim millions of acres of government land in what eventually will become Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Dakotas. Sane tribal elders would probably instead counsel sinking the boats before they docked in New Orleans or Galveston.

What can possibly explain today’s insanity? To be sure, a few may be paid agitators and a handful of others are chronic virtue signalers addicted to protesting “injustice.” But let me offer a better explanation: the misguided crusade is the result of millions of American over many decades having their brains marinated in a multi-culturalism celebrating varied skin colors, disabilities, various ethnic holidays, distinctive cuisines, Tower of Babel collections of languages and, most recently, an ever-expanding list of sexual identities. Such textbooks, often with racial and cultural injustice slants, number in the hundreds and few youngsters can escape these feel-good fantasies (the indoctrination is often called “teaching tolerance”). It is thus no accident when today’s campus protestors are asked what they want, most respond with “more diversity.” Simply put, we have collectively deluded ourselves in believing that if diversity is our strength, the greater the diversity, the greater our strength. Recall Mae West’s quip: too much of a good thing is great and this seems to apply to our infatuation for promoting differences.

Further add our recent aversion to making distinctions about the abilities and behavior of people as if the very idea of “privileging” some traits over others is hateful intolerance. With those having marinated brains, everything is just “different” not better or worse so ranking commits the heinous sin of being judgmental. It thus follows that since all people are fundamentally interchangeable, equally smart and talented, America should be open to all newcomers whether these fresh arrivals are low-IQ Syrians goat herders or East Asians molecular biologists. All will make America a wonderful mosaic of people from everywhere on the planet. It is thus inconceivable that President Trump would Tweet “Yes, America needs more immigrants but let’s bring in smart, industrious law-abiding Chinese who will boost our GDP,” though I suspect that most Americans would privately agree with the Donald.

Our Founding Fathers would be horrified by today’s embrace of diversity. As James Madison famously explained in Federalist 10, men by their very nature and circumstances, divide themselves into factions, and since these divisions are enduring and irrepressible, divisions must be managed by the organization of government–checks and balances, separation of powers and federalism (among others)–lest society tear itself to pieces or degenerate into tyranny.


The mischief of faction truth was visible everywhere in Madison’s day: varied religious faiths (some of whom had been killing each other for centuries), inequalities in property (including slave ownership), conflicts over political ideology (think Hamilton vs. Jefferson) and on and on. For Madison the best that could be said about diversity was that in a large Republic it would hinder a single faction from dominating but this was not an argument calling for yet more diversity. A more-the-merrier argument was an invitation to ruin. Madison belonged to the American Colonization Society that sought to repatriate blacks back to Africa; Lincoln similarly endorsed this policy. To suggest that transforming America into a rich multicultural tapestry is “who we are” and a “fundamental” national value is a bizarre and quite recent vision.

Ironically, today’s Middle Easterners refugees are by the millions fleeing murderous diversity. Just ask these desperate visas-seekers waiting in airport lounges their opinion on religious and ethnic diversity. It’s is not that diversity per se breeds civil violence; rather, all things being equal, heterogeneity increases the potential for civil disorder. No doubt, millions of Turks, Iraqis, and Iranians would be dancing in the streets if the Kurds all vanished tomorrow (and the opposite would be equally true). Imagine how much the US would save financially if we were a 99% WASP nation? Who needs Directors of Diversity and Inclusion, affirmative action programs, mandatory cultural sensitivity training and all the rest in a white bread world?

Fortunately, today’s bizarre outpouring of sympathy for Muslim immigrants will—hopefully– disappear when the short term ban expires. But the multicultural indoctrination may be forever and so these anti-travel ban protests will, with any luck, serve as a wakeup call. Something is deeply wrong when a gaggle of Rabbis block traffic to help admit anti-Semites or women march to show solidarity with those who believe that women should have their cliterous removed. Judged by the impact of today’s madness, the Salem witch trials were harmless. And it can only get worse as millions more Americans every year come to believe that anything short of welcoming anybody who wants to come here, especially the more exotic, is an act of hate. Is there an antidote for this lunacy? I doubt it.

    Simpler answer: much like the the Bush 43 era “Anti-War Protesters” most (80%) of this is Democrat-Soros-Saudi-Mexican organized astroturfing and the corporate media hyping it up.

    The D’s know that without mass immigration their brand is toast for the next 10-15 years at least, and maybe permanently. You can’t have national party based on hating whitey if the coalition of hate-whitey doesn’t overwhelm whitey’s influence. The D’s have long been betting on ethnically cleansing whites through open borders. Now that’s going up in smoke. Hence why they are funding these protests.

    Second, D’s (and Neocons) are in the pocket of Big corporations, who love open borders because they get cheap labor from it. This is why Facebook, Google, et al. were part of that CA lawsuit that has (for now) stopped Trump’s immigration plan. It’s also why the Corporate media—who also benefit from cheap labor and the ads/ownership by other big corporations—are pushing it.

    Third, the Saudis and Mexicans want to offload a lot of their troublesome dudes onto the West. If The U.S. Stops it, Mexico will face a crisis, and the if Europe follows suit, the Saudis will be facing a lot of guys who might upset their power. So they are for it.

    Fourth, Soros hates the West and wants it to burn. This is a way to do it.

    This is a desperate conspiracy, not mania.

    “Illegal immigrants take jobs from citizens or legal immigrants, they impose burdens on our taxpayers…”

    “That is why we are doubling the number of border guards, deporting more illegal immigrants than ever before, cracking down on illegal hiring, barring benefits to illegal aliens, and we will do more to speed the deportation of illegal immigrants arrest for crimes….”

    “It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws that has occurred in the last few years.. and we must do more to stop it.”

    The game’s finally afoot and in the open. In the US, the globalists are openly using their domination of the judiciary to try to maintain their agenda against a President elected to overturn it. Meanwhile in Europe another globalist speaks the truth in a private gathering:

    “Brexit fits into a certain trend we are seeing towards renationalisation,” he said.

    “I strongly believe that this negatively affects the well-being of us all.

    “We should therefore invest all our efforts in containing these trends.

    Any and all pronouncements and assertions by experts, senior establishment figures and the organisations they control should be interpreted in the light of this ulterior purpose they overwhelmingly share.

    “Insanity?” Perhaps not.

    The rich want, more than anything else, cheap labor. The best way to get that is to flood the market for labor, in this case by importing the surplus labor of the overpopulated third world. But that doesn’t sound very good, so the rich have created a tidal wave of propaganda that any opposition to this cheap-labor policy is racist etc. This “insanity” is a deliberately crafted weapon aimed at the working class, and it’s power is precisely that it cancels out any chance of reasoned debate. It is an expression of the raw power that the oligarchy (which now effectively owns the mainstream press, the universities, the think-tanks, the courts, etc.) has.

    Love or hate Trump, his ability to single-handedly oppose the brute power of the establishment is awe-inspiring. Like watching a volcano erupt. It might not work out well, but it sure is impressive.

    Could it be that Netanyahoo claims to be representative of all Jews and promotes conflict with Muslims to increase the immigration to Israel to strengthen the Jewish demographics while continuing to slaughter innocent Muslim women and children and steal their land.

    “Historic Muslim anti-semitism”

    Really? The Muslim world opened its doors when Spain expelled the Jews. Maimonides might dispute that claim.

    While I agree that bringing in large number of immigrants from a very different culture makes assimilation difficult and is not in the best interests of the U.S., as seen in the turmoil in Europe, however, the main thrust of this article seems to be from a racist Zionist perspective.

  22. There is a solution. Make me dictator for 5 years, and I will purge the country of traitors, subversives. Many will be executed, more will have their citizenship revoked and sent to Liberia, Africa, with a penalty of death if they attempt to re-enter. All Democrats-office holders, registered members, voters, et al-will be suspended for 30 years from any political activity of any kind. Women voters will need to be qualified and pass tests of rationality, logic, and reason-traits only a minority possess.

    All prisons will be run on a POW/plantation/farm model. Prisons will be self-supporting and growth surpluses of food. 12 hour days will be standard. This life will be spartan and austere. Punishments will be severe. Attempted murders get the death penalty and troublemakers get flogged-in front of everybody.

    The guillotine will be the only instrument of execution, the range of crimes that mandate same will be expanded, e.g., child molesters, 3rd felony conviction, attempted murder.

    All women will be taught that their highest purpose is to birth and nurture children. No woman will be allowed to advance above a low economic position without a husband and 3 children. Especially higher IQ females. Same with males.

    This will produce calm, contentment, safety, prosperity AND perpetuity of the Caucasian Race and its offshoots. Asians and selected Hindus can be regarded as White for purposes of inclusion, with attentive screening.

    This society must-by law-always have a 90% majority of Caucasians.

    I agree with your analysis for the cause of this liberal madness. Fifty years of indoctrination into the dangerous delusion that we are all equal and that anyone who thinks otherwise is evil.

    Mass hysteria indeed. After the massacre in Paris at the Bataclan theatre the liberals were out in force the next day with their candlelight vigils praying for tolerance. The blood had not even been cleaned up from the sidewalks and they were marching in solidarity to keep the door wide open in their country for Muslims.

    Someone once said that liberalism is a suicide pact, I think it was Burnham. It is very true. We have to recognize this liberalism as far more than folly and confront it directly for the evil it is.

    There ain’t no cure for stupid.

    Patriots and true anti-imperialists should march with a loud-and-clear message condemning US foreign policy of having destroyed much of the Middle East and created all those ‘refugees’.

    If NYC ‘welcomes refugees’, why do refugees exist in the first place? Because the elites that dominate places like NYC have been influencing foreign policy toward US meddling in the Middle East and North Africa that led to this Refugee Crisis.

    From these protests, one would think being a ‘refugee’ is noble and cool. In fact, it is tragic, and it is downright criminal to turn people with homes and security into nomadic refugees without a home. Why did so many Muslims turn out this way?
    Because Zionists and globalist bankers run US foreign policy, that’s why.
    So, the sight of all those Jews in NYC feigning sympathy for Muslim refugees is disgusting because they were silent when Obama and Hillary were doing everything to reduce the Muslim World into a rubble.

  29. What are NY Jews up to with all this hypocrisy and craziness?

    Are they really being idealistic or just cynical & disingenuous? Is their show of sympathy for Muslims a sneaky means to cover up their own crimes against the Muslim world?

    Are Jews really this deluded or really this devious?

    Having given up on Moses, they once took up Marx. Having dumped Marx, what are they for? Marx Brothers politics?

    Marx was rather like modern Jesus, John the Baptist, St Paul, and John rolled into one. He did for materialism what the renegade early Christian Jews did for spiritualism.

    Mel Brooks’ movie TWELVE CHAIRS is indicative of this.

    The ’12’ is most likely an allusion to the 12 tribes of Israel.

    According to Judaism, God made a special Covenant with the Jews. Jews were blessed the light of God. They received the spiritual treasures. It was theirs and their alone. There were twelve tribes, and each competed to be the best before God. But even among the tribes, each thought itself most special.
    Anyway, the renegade Jews came along and cooked up Christianity. This meant sharing the Jewish spiritual treasure with all the world. Oy!!! It had once belonged to Jews alone. It was stashed into their throne, their chair. It belonged to the 12 tribes. And good to have 12 cuz, if 11 were to be wiped out, one would still remain to carry on.

    But the renegade Jews spread this all around, and Christians(and later Muslims) shared in the glorious treasure of God’s blessing.

    What had been a special treasure and advantage to the Jews was lost to the world as God came to be shared by everyone.

    It’s like the guy at the end of the movie discovering that the jewels had been found in the chair and used for the good of the community to build the chess club. For good of all the world.

    He screams, “it’s mine” and clings to whatever is left of the chair even though the jewel are gone. He holds onto the remnant of the chair like Jewish rabbis held onto them big scrolls.

    Many impoverished Jews in Eastern Europe in the early 20th century were like this. They clung to the Tradition as theirs alone when their God had long ago been appropriated by gentiles who built a great new order upon it. It was like clinging to a broken chair. It still had symbolic value but no longer a source of power and assurance.

    If religious Jews clung to the ‘chair’ that no longer held the jewels that had been shared with(or stolen by) Christianity and Islam, the merchant Jews clung to their material wealth, like the Jewish guy in Bergman’s FANNY AND ALEXANDER.
    But communism, the materialist version of Christianity — again cooked up by renegade Jews — threatened to take away even the material goods from the Jews. Communists took not only from gentile aristocrats but from all business class. Some Jews were willing to abandon their identity and just join with humanity under the Sign of Marx. But more sensible Jews saw this is another catastrophe.

    Anyway, what was the modern Jew to do? He could cling to God, but religious Jews were stuck in the past with no relevance in the new era. Religion no longer provided Jews with power or even basic security. And joining the establishment was risky too. Communist revolution might sweep away Jews who’d joined with the gentile elites. Not wise to become entrenched as the new nobility or ‘oppressor’ class. No wonder that Jews, even as rulers of America, still signal that they are the soul-brethren of new immigrants arriving with little or nothing, with all those ‘refugees’. Jewish identification with them is supposed to make even the richest Jew in America a kind of honorary ‘eternal refugee’.

    Anyway, all that was left was the constant hustle and game.
    In the final scene, the man tosses away the remnant of the chair and hustles as an epileptic to have the goyim throw shekels at him. And his partner invokes Dostoevsky, the great Christian writer. So, the trick is to sucker the earnest and dim-witted Christians by manipulating their minds and pulling at their heart-strings. The crowd takes in the scene seriously and throw coins at him while he winks and nods to his partner. It’s all a joke to them, this hoodwinking of the Christian suckers, but it is their path to power… and the result is Hollywood and Las Vegas and etc. (The characters are not literally Jewish but symbolically so.)

    The last remaining Tribe went from pulling heart-strings to pulling legs to pulling puds. Pulling a fast one on goyim.

    This culture of lies must end. When Jews were lying to survive and struggle to make the climb, it was understandable if not admirable. But as the ruling elites of the US(thereby the world), Jews need to embrace the culture of truth and ask WHY THERE ARE MUSLIM REFUGEES IN THE FIRST PLACE.

    The problem is not so much an inability to identify “the other” as an embrace and apotheosis of “the other” as sacred and inviolate no matter how hateful and pernicious: e.g., black criminals, “Hispanic” gangsters, Muslim terrorists, etc.

    No, a lot of Europeans are still ethnocentric in real numbers, just not in relative numbers. Eventually, they will be the only Whites left. As that point draws closer and closer, hot war will become more and more likely. I figure at the least, the White population will be 1/3 of what it is now, before that tipping point is reached. Roughly 10% of the current Euro population is still ethnocentric enough for practical purposes; once they are one third of the Euro population, heads will start to roll.

    I’m hoping that colonization of space gets rolling before all of this comes to a head. Ethnocentric Whites will be able to leave Earth and establish new colonies, leaving the rest of their race to go extinct. The vastness of space will make leftist hegemony (or any other, beyond the level of a star system) impossible (it will take years to travel between even the closest star systems; in most cases, decades, centuries, or eons).

    This rings false. If the left really believed that “different” is not better or worse, but rather “the same,” they wouldn’t be so attached to “different.” Because immigration would not achieve anything. They’d just shrug their shoulders at the prospect of closing the borders. They believe “different” is better.

    Interesting that just a few years ago German Chancellor Angela Merkel was asserting that she did not believe “multiculturalism” was good for or would work in Germany. Obviously, she had an immediate change of mind (an epiphany?) on the subject. Now, in just a couple of years after staking out her anti-multicultural position, Germany has become, at best, culturally-agnostic, and at worst, may be on the way to becoming “uni-cultural” again – as in Muslim! Many American politicians at earlier points in their careers sounded the same immigration alarm bells that Trump rang during his campaign. These include the likes of Harry Reid, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Paul Ryan! The big question is, how do the Angela Merkels of the political world come to these sudden epiphanies? There must be some inspirational well or desert redoubt somewhere to which they’re summoned to receive instant enlightenment.

    I emphatically agree, TG.

    I suspect the true danger lies ahead. Look at the Middle East: a powder keg of utterly totalitarian states with incendiary belief systems. Even your “average” level-headed Middle Eastern living in the U.S. might feel compelled to “even” the score if his entire lineage vaporizes from a catastrophe like nuclear war. How well does your average Muslim adapt to a different culture?

    From the CFR’s site, article entitled “Europe’s Angry Muslims,” 2005:

    As a consequence of demography, history, ideology, and policy, western Europe now plays host to often disconsolate Muslim offspring, who are its citizens in name but not culturally or socially. In a fit of absentmindedness, during which its academics discoursed on the obsolescence of the nation-state, western Europe acquired not a colonial empire but something of an internal colony, whose numbers are roughly equivalent to the population of Syria. Many of its members are willing to integrate and try to climb Europe’s steep social ladder. But many younger Muslims reject the minority status to which their parents acquiesced. A volatile mix of European nativism and immigrant dissidence challenges what the Danish sociologist Ole Waever calls “societal security,” or national cohesion. To make matters worse, the very isolation of these diaspora communities obscures their inner workings, allowing mujahideen to fundraise, prepare, and recruit for jihad with a freedom available in few Muslim countries.

    We are not from their country or culture nor they from ours. They have no love for the U.S. nor respect the continuation of this nation. The current incoming immigrants have no intense desire to abandon their beliefs and traditions within our society. We have no commonly shared network of beliefs, traditions, or held values as previous immigrants brought to the U.S. Current M.E. immigrants either desire autonomity and separation with little interaction in the dominant culture’s belief system or desire the complete abrogation of the societal and legal framework of a nation so different from their own cultural heritage.

    The Globalist knows full well his agenda and goal. These kinds of immigrants not only satisfy their need to degrade labor costs but also their need to destabilize Western nations–where chaos allows their control to become far more adept and actualized.

    Seriously…how does a Western nation incorporate a belief that women are secondary and inferior? Thus, how can behavior such as fondling preteens in open-air pools or ripping clothes while grabbing women’s sexual organs within wolf packs of 10-15 men become acceptable?

    Now however, free speech is a thing of the past in Germany and most of Europe. You will be jailed if you question anything that goes against the Nuremberg Show Trials and that Jews don’t like.

    you do realize that the only reason there is a sizeable iranian american population in california is because of the iran revolution right? you know, the one where we, the usa, fucked over a democratic country to install a shah, a dictator, monarch. iranians got fed up and the revolution happened. the refugees of our own creation was about 700-800k back in the 70s. if it is only 1 million now, that is nothing as far as growth goes. you don’t want to share? then don’t destroy their country in the first place. this is what you need to worry about. the only population group that is about to make your nightmare come true. 75% population growth in just 10-15 years. at the very least pick the right fights. geez.

    don’t hate for no reason. do you even know why you hate? or do you simply hate all who isn’t white? is hate all you know? all you are?

    they are legal immigrants, legal. do you understand what that entails? it would make alot of sense if trump wants to stop allowing new immigrants from the five countries he listed. but to detain/deport legal immigrants, international students, fuck him for breaking the law. not even the president is above the law.

    Are Jews really this deluded or really this devious?

    Both. It all goes back to their ethnocentrism. Like everything interesting about them does, if you follow the thread long enough.

    Jews have managed to wire their whole culture as a form of mass self-delusion. The key point is not to do any self-examination, except through the lens of ethnocentrism. If you try to get them to examine themselves, you’re a “Jew-hater” and must be stopped, shouted down, fired, broken, silenced. Same goes for Jews who go off the res.

    Anyway, the renegade Jews came along and cooked up Christianity. This meant sharing the Jewish spiritual treasure with all the world.

    Indeed. This, and a few other factors (mostly the tantalizingly available treasures of European societies), explains Jewish animus against Christianity.

    What can possibly explain today’s insanity? To be sure, a few may be paid agitators and a handful of others are chronic virtue signalers addicted to protesting “injustice.” But let me offer a better explanation: the misguided crusade is the result of millions of American over many decades having their brains marinated in a multi-culturalism celebrating varied skin colors, disabilities, various ethnic holidays, distinctive cuisines, Tower of Babel collections of languages and, most recently, an ever-expanding list of sexual identities.

    Yes… but the question is, who has propagated these subversive doctrines and why?

    I think it is an alliance of Jews and liberal goyim. First, the Jews. American Jews are reflexively liberal/multicultural and see themselves as the “other.” They recognize that their tribalism and distinct clannishness will paint a target on their backs as soon as any nationalist sentiment arises, so they are all for diluting the dominant culture. As is the case in France, of course, this can ultimately backfire on them if too many Muslims are imported and gain the upper hand.

    Second, liberal goyim, including feminists and queers, favor more multiculturalism because it dilutes the Christian “patriarchy” they so despise. They know that there’ll never be enough Muslims in the U.S. to ever impose Sharia on them and veil the women and execute the gays. But they DO know that there are enough fundamentalist Christians to outlaw their sodomy and their abortions. So any non-Christian foreign culture is welcomed as a tactical matter, under the old adage that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

    Of course this can backfire on them as well, but they’re betting that it won’t, at least in the foreseeable future.

    ”Imagine the Sioux Indians during the 1880’s debating sending a tribal delegation to New Orleans or Galveston to welcome German and Swedish immigrants”

    I think Native American history needs a complete overhaul, a lot of the Amerindians in North America want us all to believe that they were living all in tune with nature and with each other. Whish is an absolute bold face lie, yes tribes traded goods but there was no pan Amerindians, they feuded with each other violently. For example the Sioux were originally a woodland tribe residing in northern Minnesota, they were driven down to the Dakota plains region because they were feuding with local tribes.

    And also many Algonquin tribes actually encouraged White, most likely French, settlement.

    “The Anvil of America” page 191 first paragraph.

    “In its early phases
    the progress of the North American frontier was at least as much a creation of Indian
    politics and attitudes as white pressures. Many forces within the Indian world
    operated on this far from inexorable advance, sometimes in such obvious ways as
    an Indian nation encouraging white settlement in order to gain European support
    and auxiliaries, or storms among Indian states leaving shattered borderland
    that invited occupation.”

  53. @Astuteobservor II got curious, so I googled the entire law.

    (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President

    Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.

    isn’t this only for new immigrants or aliens of any class? not about existing green card holders who are returning from an overseas trip. damn, the retarded wally almost got me with the partial quote. too close.

    I’m not saying the order makes sense; I don’t think it does in dealing with green-card holders. But the law you cited contains two sentences, which really ought to be separate paragraphs: one dealing with the powers of the President, the other dealing with the powers of the Attorney-General, which are naturally more limited and in fact deal only with matters related to fraudulent papers. Thus the second sentence has no effect on the powers specified in the first, while “resident aliens” would seem to be included under “any class of aliens”.

    Resident aliens have been deported in the past; this case is of course not under the same law, but a green card isn’t a badge of immunity.

  59. @Anon well this entire section is dealing with new aliens, new immigrants. the part I quoted was #10 (f)

    name of this entire section is:

    8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens

    has nothing to do with existing green card holders. deportation is when resident aliens becomes a criminal. that is the only way to deport a green card.

    about the wikipost. that was during WWI. That was spycraft. those aliens were targeted because their was a good chance they were spies. it still wasn’t a blanket order that deported all aliens from certain countries. even when we fucked over the japanese americans during WWII and put them in camps, we still didn’t deport them. the govt had to paid restitution for that blunder. you wanna do the same thing again?

    We didn’t deport the Japanese, Germans, or Italians in WWII because a) it’s kind of hard to deport people to a country you’re at war with, and b) most of them were citizens.
    In fact, though rather irrelevant, Canada and some other countries sent their Japanese here to be interned.

    What I want to do is immaterial; read my last comment again anyway.

    Did you read the Immigration Act of 1918? It was never a crime to be an anarchist (obviously excepting advocacy of force and violence) in the US, but anarchist resident aliens were nevertheless deported.

    And it wasn’t during but after WWI.

    As far as I know Trump hasn’t deported anybody. Anyway this statute has nothing whatsoever to do with deportations, but with people, specifically aliens, seeking entry.

    Find me somewhere in the bill which substantiates your claim about permanent residents.

    Note that the part title (part II of subchapter II of chapter 12 of Title 8) is “Travel Control of Citizens and Aliens”, not “Travel Control of Citizens, Residents, and other Aliens”.

    it was 1918, does it really matter that it was not during WWI but few months after the first world war? the immigration act’s existence was because of that war right? still a targeted effort, not a blanket order.

    In re WWI, if you read the Wiki article you’ll find the raids were centered around New Year’s, 1920. The law was passed in 1918 but it was unlikely that the intention was to deal with German spies, who generally weren’t anarchists. It seems more likely that the Bolshevik revolution in Russia was a concern.

    The bill I was referring to was your link, though I think you may be right, see here : and here: . But then, I’m not a lawyer and the law seems somewhat confused here.
