As someone who believes in fairness and facts, I think there’s something that ought to be pointed out regarding the intense agita that’s going on in the United States after the Trump inauguration, and especially since President Trump’s Presidential Executive Order (PEO) regarding certain people coming into the USA.
I can’t go more deeply or further—I have to make this a quick Op Ed, as I’m in the process of writing a Respondent’s Brief to answer the electric utility PECO’s Brief regarding the Administrative Law Court hearing I had November 2 and 3, 2016 regarding my refusing an AMI Smart Meter.
However, please take the time to watch, and thoughtfully process, what Thomas Sotomayor says after the media clips exposing President Bill Clinton’s and President Barack Obama’s almost exact, if not more so, remarks regarding immigration and protecting the homeland.
I’ve been hearing radio reports of people showing up at psychologists offices with a new problem; it’s called “Trump Trauma.”
One of the more important undertakings anyone can do to ferret out the facts—“truth” as some would call it—is to study all the PEOs former President Obama put into the pipeline of unconstitutional actions, if readers will pardon that assessment, and yet NO ONE marched, protested or organized when U.S. citizens’ rights and wellbeing were encumbered or obstructed. That’s something I really can’t get my mind around in view of what’s going on about protesting against preventing potential terrorists flocking into the country.
According to the Contact@GovtSlaves.Info website,
Some of the more damaging orders that bare his [Obama’s] signature are: EXECUTIVE ORDER TO CONTROL THE INTERNET, EXECUTIVE ORDER ACCELERATES MANDATORY HIV TESTING FOR ALL CITIZENS, OBAMA SIGNS CYBERSECURITY EXECUTIVE ORDER, OBAMA EXECUTIVE ORDER PUSHES US CLOSER TO A NORTH AMERICAN UNION AND A ONE WORLD ECONOMIC SYSTEM, OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE ACTIONS ON ‘GUN VIOLENCE REDUCTION,
while not a peep was heard from anyone; no one protested in the streets; no university exams had to be postponed; and everyone thought those PEOs were just ‘grand’! Is there some disconnect on my part, or is there some ulterior motive afoot to bring about a genuine civil war by those who seem so intent upon domination? Are protesters playing out a predetermined hand of behind-the-scene string-pullers the controlled media wont’ discuss as real news?
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a four-term-elected U.S. President, issued 3,522 PEOs, and no ONE ever protested. He was a Democratic Party president too!
There is a tremendous influx of people  due to displacement from wars no one should be fighting or experiencing, in my opinion. All refugees may not be who they claim they are. Do U.S. protestors exercising their rights now know what’s going on in Sweden , Germany , France , the Netherlands, and other EU countries  due to extremists – not peaceful people of the Muslim faith – who obviously want to harm those whom they refer to as Infidels and to dismantle or overtake their countries and cultures? How can we tell the difference? Good question!?
That criminal activity, I believe, is what all U.S. citizens should be realizing is what the current PEO of so much consternation is really about preventing, and yet not fully understood by soft-hearted, well-meaning liberal Americans, in my opinion. All the EU countries that didn’t vet refugees more closely now are paying a tremendous social price. Do we want that in the USA?
Wikipedia has an interesting take on PEOs, which I think readers ought to check out here. Personally, I’m on record, and have written articles about, PEOs being “one man rule,” which should be eliminated and deconstructed, as I really don’t see where in the U.S. Constitution “one man rule” was given.
That was the very thing the Founding Fathers (and Mothers, too) were intent on avoiding because of their rebellion against King George III of England , whom they felt was a tyrant. Why would they ever have given “one man rule” powers in the founding documents of the new republic they were fighting so desperately to create? That doesn’t make sense, does it?
In my opinion, presidents stating that PEO powers are within the U.S. Constitution really don’t know what they are talking about, but press to possess the ultimate in one man autocratic rule, something really not within the U.S. Constitution and our founding documents.
However, there is the U.S. Code of Laws and in 8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible Aliens, it states,
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.
In reality, President Trump is UPHOLDING the U.S. laws regarding aliens even though many may not agree with his findings.
Personally, I think civics classes and courses should be mandated for all students at every grade level up to graduation so that we, as a country, can have well informed activists, voters and citizens, not fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants reactionaries who are manipulated by a propagandizing press, in my opinion.
I hope this can help to bring some sense of reasoning as to why there should be more and better tolerance among political parties and their constituents, specifically those who have lost what they thought was ‘due’ them, because political tolerance has been the real American way.
