It is in evidence of how effective the left has been in spreading its dogma that there is even a debate over things that should be as straightforward as securing the nation’s borders and controlling those who are allowed to enter this country. The left has managed to connect these issues with some sort of exercise in civil rights, as though citizens of foreign countries have a right to enter the US. Must it be said? They do not.
Nevertheless, we are forced to endure the lunacy of court challenges to the power of a president to even temporarily restrict travel from a few countries. This could quickly turn into an essay discussing how the court system has gone bonkers, but that’s not the purpose at this time. The question is one of the eventual fate of the travel ban.
The left is appalled at the travel ban, and their allies in the mainstream media are cheering them on. It’s a bizarre spectacle to observe, as they essentially invite into the country those who are interested in committing acts of violence. With no sense of responsibility for the tragedies they might help precipitate, they continue on their crusade against President Trump. The problem they have is that they might have just been outmaneuvered by The Donald.
It is possible that President Trump just tricked the media into unwittingly supporting his travel ban. NBC News filed the following report on Mr. Trump’s recent comments: “‘Radical Islamic terrorists are determined to strike our homeland, as they did on 9/11, as they did from Boston to Orlando to San Bernardino and all across Europe,’ Trump declared at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. ‘It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported, and in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it.'”
The mainstream press, eager to defend themselves and prove Mr. Trump wrong, responded with lists of all the terrorist attacks they did cover, thus supporting the president’s position that foreigners traveling to the US from selected countries do pose a risk. This would be the opposite of what these same media outlets have claimed.
For example: “‘A perusal of the archives revealed that NBC News covered 57 of the attacks on the list, which resulted in the deaths [o]f 745 people — including the Paris terrorist attacks in November 2015, which killed 130 people, left more than 400 others wounded and resulted in hundreds of stories,’ left-leaning NBC said in their defense.” CNN made similar statements.
Sounds like a lot of terror and violence and death from a problem these media outlets would prefer to claim does not exist.
It’s difficult to say whether President Trump just deliberately “played” the mainstream press, although it’s a terrific and enjoyable idea to consider. Whatever his motivation, the result has been at least two major media outlets providing evidence to support the president’s travel ban.
As the president’s supporters love to say, “So much winning!”
