U.S. immigration decree and its effects

I thought it might be useful to start up a new thread for this issue, because it has a lot of implications here (and elsewhere) and I thought it would get lost in the Trump administration thread.

Ms Fadwa Aloui, a Canadian citizen born in Fèz, Morocco, her cousin and her two children were headed in her car to a shopping trip in Burlington (Vermont, I assume?) and they were interrogated for a long time at the US border. She was asked about the mosque she attended, her imam and what she thought of Trump!

Are the people who put hatred of Hillary above all else happy, now?

There is a very good chance you're going to get your wish and Donald Fucking Trump will be president.

All hope for anything in the U.S. will be dead for years to come, if not forever, if that happens.

This is Germany, 1933 right now, folks.

Race War, uncontrolled resource extraction, MORE slaughter in the Middle East.

The repeal of the Affordable Care Act and nothing put in in its place.

But at least some people are preserving their purity.

Queen of Chaos: The Misadventures of Hillary Clinton

This outstanding book by Diana Johnstone is required reading for all who care about humanity.


It is readily available at  I recommend the Kindle version as you will be highlighting like crazy. Johnstone has the goods on Clinton, and must be stopped.
