What is All the Fuss about Vetting Immigrants?
I went through it.. so can anyone else!
The recent hysteria concerning President Trump’s imposition of a ban on seven countries which happen to be Muslim is laughable. With over forty Muslim countries around the world, Trump selected seven of them, five of which had been extensively bombed by former POTUS Obama. Remember: HRC and Obama supported and incentivized the wars in the following wars Muslim countries: Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, and Somalia.
I didn’t hear of any protests concerning the gratuitous wars that HRC /Obama started and continued at the cost of $6 Trillion USD. The lachrymose farce of Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer belies an underlying hypocrisy that strains credulity across all parts of the liberal/left/Democratic political/economic spectrum. Where were his tears as he watched and did nothing about the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of innocent Muslims, Christians, Druze, Chaldeans, Assyrians, during the CIA/John Brennan/Obama illegal drone warfare throughout the Middle East?
Equally despicable is the statement by Goldman Sach’s CEO Lloyd Blankfein, another American Jew, who openly breaks with Trump because he is personally offended by the immigration ban. Has America forgotten how Blankfein raped and pillaged this country during the 2008 banking crisis? He, as well as his sycophants at Goldman Sachs [many are now in the Trump administration] created fake financial instruments [CDO, subprime mortgages] which were sold to Middle America knowing fully well that they were worthless. Blankfein then bet against his own fake products; screwing Americans again and again. While Americans went bankrupt and homeless as a result of Goldman Sach’s miscreant behavior, Blankfein received a bonus/salary of $54M USD.
Trump’s immigration ban has uncovered the festering cesspool of deceit, conceit, and disingenuous concerns from those who never really served our country, either in the military or elsewhere; allowing these self-professed moralists [Tartuffe] to position themselves publicly on the side of apparent righteousness.
I came to this country as a refugee around 1950. I did not speak English, nor was I welcomed with open arms. The criteria for citizenship for me and my family were very clear. We had to wait six years in Havana, Cuba until we were vetted by the Consular Service of the US State Department. After the process was complete, we were given a visa on the condition that my father pass the American Medical Board. My father was a medical doctor in the french army but that did not guarantee our stay in America. He had to pass the boards, and he did! He was the only one to pass out of 469 refugee medical doctors. Unfortunately for the others, they were forced to leave the USA.
When I came of age, I was personally informed by the selective service that I would have to serve our military sometime in the future if I wanted to become a citizen of the USA. It wasn’t a suggestion; nor was it a flimsy consideration on the part of two Democratic POTUS: FDR, Harry Truman.
In case our liberal friends want to complain ever more, let me remind them that thanks to two more liberal Democratic presidents JFK and LBJ, I was the only one drafted at Cornell University Medical College [maybe one other out of a class of 88 students] during the Vietnam War.
I could have left to Canada, Cuba [my birthplace], or France. Instead, I chose the hardest and most deadly route for American citizenship—serving my country. No one should be guaranteed anything when it comes to becoming an American citizen.You serve this country … or not! The choice is yours. Stop complaining!
There will always be refugees coming to our shores.That is a given. How will they benefit our country’s welfare—that is the real question.
When a Blankfein or a Schumer feign outrage for political purposes, it seems so laughable given their personal records of greed and skullduggery against American citizens. It’s time for America to rid itself of the poseurs and robbers who raped our country time and time again.
