"did say last week that it reserves the right to impose entry bans as a “last resort.”
Be careful with the "Entry Bans"....that is not working so well for us in the United States.
I must wonder why so many immigrants decided to head to Europe and not stay in an area where their beliefs are practiced.

Lets just say I disagree with Crazy Joe...The Muslim Ban...is what some see. I see the fact that these countries are Muslims countries because they kill, persecute, harass pretty much anyone who is not of the Muslim faith. The fact these countries are Muslim is a byproduct of their hatred and intolerance of those who are not in line with their beliefs.

“xenophobia and religious discrimination” ......really. Religious discrimination....take a look at the 7 countries listed. At one point some said it targets "Muslims". Some countries have next to little or nearly no Christian citizens. Reason being is that for centuries Muslims in those areas behead...persecute...kill those whom are not of the Muslim faith. So the fact that these are Muslim countries is merely a byproduct of their hatred of anyone whom is not Muslim, ergo your reasoning is flawed.

Canada: Airlines must ensure pilots sober in cockpit.
One would think that this would be a common sense issue. I am sure glad that they threw that out there to clear things up.

"He said she and another woman performed stunts which involved convincing men to close their eyes and then spraying them with water."
I read another article on this same issue and they said...."investigators had no idea how the poison got into the bottle"..seriously....umm It's just a guess but maybe someone put it in there?

Wow......this is kind of strange. In many places if one works said amount of hours then they can expect to paid at the rate they hired on for said hours worked. To work and not be paid by your employer...how is that even legal?
To find your own replacement....does that not fall under employer duties and not employee. I realize different country different labor laws....but this is beyond me.
In some places this would make a lawsuit. When I read articles like this I am reminded just how thankful I should be for my job.

"Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - have raised terrorism concerns. The states have argued that the executive order unconstitutionally blocked entry based on religion"
Based on Religion....well in some of these countries there is little to zero Christians. Mainly because many Muslims persecute ...kill...anybody whom is not Muslim.
These countries being Muslim is a byproduct of their own making through violence and intimidation of those whom are not.
Ergo.....their logic is flawed.

Too funny....I would not trust these countries with a potato gun. Saudi Arabia....if they are ever attacked again the first thing they will do is run and leave behind said Military hardware for the enemy. This is the most unstable area of the world...do really think any Military hardware is safe?

The article focused on the killings of five teenagers from the same New York City suburb and suspicions that the slayings were the work of a street gang, MS-13, that has roots in El Salvador and has been linked to at least 30 killings on Long Island since 2010.
“It’s not a good thing,” said Maryann Sinclair Slutsky, executive director of the immigrant advocacy group Long Island Wins. “I don’t know why he’s picking Long Island. The entire immigrant community is terrified. All immigrants in that community feel uncomfortable. There’s profiling going on and whether they are totally upstanding citizens, they are going to feel targeted in some way.”
So Maryann Slutsky has no idea why he is pointing out Long Island. Is this woman for real....so Trump should do nothing and let the killings continue? This is part of the problem in America....Uh....We need help but if you do it we are going to complain. If you cant help yourselves then just be thankful that someone else is willing to do it for you.
So in other words Slutsky.......say thank you.

Funny........paste:"Every time I would push a candidate for the Republican party, it would come up for the Democratic candidate," Pennsylvania voter David Drane told KDKA.
Election judges in Clinton Township, Butler County, did, in fact, confirm there were issues with two of their eight automated voting machines, and that most of the issues resulted when people tried to vote for a straight party ticket.
However, others reported when they specifically tried to vote for Trump, regardless of the rest of their ticket, they saw their vote flip before their eyes to Democrat Hillary Clinton.
"I went back, pressed Trump again," Bobbie Lee Hawranko told KDKA.:end paste
Well I guess it is not called "CLINTON Township" for nothing. More reports are surfacing of voting machines with the same issue. I'll bet Putin is laughing his head off....thinking "Russia would never need to hack Hillary's server because America does enough damage to itself.

State House candidate Mike McGarghan, running to represent a district in Burlington, is standing by a tweet he posted this year calling for Obama to be hanged for treason.
More than one person suggested the threat against Obama could be a crime.
Calling for someone to be hanged and saying "I'm going to hang" are completely different. I do not know the exact language but I do not see this a threat...more of an opinion.
Hillary should be sent to jail....did I just threaten her?

Posted in: For many decades, Japan has played an important role in providing development and humanitarian aid to countries throughout East and Southeast Asia, but it was long ‘hindered,’ so to speak, by its pacifist defense policy. It can now become more directly engaged in regional securitization efforts. For some, this is reassuring. For others, it is cause for concern.
