One of the first promises of Donald Trump during his campaign was to protect the American People against foreign invaders. One week after he was sworn into office, he signed the executive order that put restrictions on the absolutely outlandish refugee program that President Obama had put into effect. Here are some of the key points that changed:
Puts a halt on the US Refugee Admissions Program for only 120 days as it overhauls the vetting process.
It includes an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees.
It also puts a 90 day visa suspension on anyone coming from the following seven countries: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. Categories not affected are diplomats and the UN
The order also puts a limit on the number of refugees accepted from 110,000 under President Obama down to 50,000.
Priority will be given to religious minorities facing persecution in their countries, such as Christians in Syria
Exceptions could be made on a case-by-case basis
At first glance to anyone with a brain, you can see that this is a temporary limiting of people entering the country from countries that are basically active war zones. Why would the United States be willing to open its doors to its enemies or people who want to do harm or sympathize with the enemy. Iran has been a state sponsor of terror and sworn enemy to the American people. Sudan is engaged in an extremely brutal civil war with its own people. Syria is the capital of ISIS, who commit atrocities on a daily basis.
“The Constitution and acts of Congress confer on the President broad authority to prevent aliens abroad from entering this country when he deems it in the nation’s interest,” said Solicitor General Noel Francisco in court documents.
Yet ever since the travel restrictions were put in place, the Alt-Left has tried to make this a case about race. Never-mind the facts that these countries pose serious risks to the safety of all Americans, or that we cannot vet these people properly thanks to a weak Obama State Department. The Left brought their case to courts that had obvious leanings and close ties to the previous administration. Two separate times the lower courts overturned the Trump Travel Ban, allowing our country to be put at risk under the guise of Political Correctness. Both of the court cases that struck down the travel ban were Obama appointees. Let that sink in.
Foreign invaders were able to infiltrate the refugee program for almost a full year before Monday December 4th the highest court in the land passed judgement that until the case is heard before them, the travel ban will be enforced.
Immigration is one of those issues that has had strong historical significance to this country. While it is true that this country is a nation of immigrants, no one denies that, the facts still remain that a temporary travel ban until the vetting process does not stop the legal immigration process. People will still be allowed in on a case by case basis.
As for the argument that the President cannot block immigrants, that is completely false. The power over foreign policy rests with the executive branch solely. “The Constitution and acts of Congress confer on the President broad authority to prevent aliens abroad from entering this country when he deems it in the nation’s interest,” said Solicitor General Noel Francisco in court documents. So why do we have this fight currently in the courts with regards to the travel ban? Because activist Judges that were appointed by President Obama have been packed into the courts.
Federal Judges and all Judges for that matter, should enforce the rules of law as stated by laws currently on the books, enforce the laws according to the constitution and their interpretation of the constitution. They cannot go against precedent, and the constitution itself that specifically enumerates the powers of the executive branch with regards to immigration.
After this huge win, there is nothing the activist judges can do to reverse the decision of the highest court in the land. The case will be heard before the Supreme Court, where true conservative judges can educate the lower court judges what impartiality and constitutionality is.
And after the decision is handed down, the Alt-Left and the liberal snowflakes will have to accept this decision, just like they must accept that Donald Trump is their President.
The sport of Football is as American as the Red, White, and Blue, Apple Pie, and the A-10 Warthog.You would be hard pressed to find a true American patriot that didn’t enjoy the sight of hard hitting tackles and the Hail Mary.
It wasn’t until cry baby social justice warriors were given their platform in the NFL and millions of dollars a year to show off their true colors, which are their distain for the country that gives them their freedoms and the flag that that represents.
Because of the disrespect that Kaepernick and most of the NFL encourages to the flag and the country for which it stands, most conservatives have sworn off the NFL and to fill that void, have turned to College Football.Where the sport is pure, more competitive, and the crybaby snowflake culture has not had a chance to rear its ugly head.
Now, that being said, Today the College Football Playoff Rankings came out and there were a few surprises.Lets take a look.
#1- Clemson– The reigning national champions.At 12-1, they are the most well rounded team in the top 10.Their one loss coming to Syracuse who ended up last in the ACC Atlantic division.
#2- Oklahoma– a consistent football powerhouse led by Baker Mayfield, who is a strong contender for the Heisman this year.Their record of 12-1 comes from a loss at home to Iowa State, who ended 9-3 in the Big 12
#3– We have the SEC champions, the Georgia Bulldogs.Their one loss coming from Auburn in the second half of their season.They later faced off in the Conference championship and Prevailed, making the case that the Georgia Bulldogs have the best claim to the National Championship so far, if you believe the myth that the sec is the best conference in college football.Their only loss coming from the losing to the second place team in the SEC.
And coming in at #4 we have the perennial “of course they included them in the playoffs even when they didn’t win their conference” the Alabama Crimson Tide. Why is Alabama given the benefit of doubt when there are other national programs that are left with better records.
What is is with College football and their love affair with the SEC?Why do they have such an infatuation with Alabama football and Nick Saban?
Here is a list of all the conference champions that were left out of the playoffs.
Big Ten- Ohio State
Pac 12- USC Trojans
Mountain West- Boise State Broncos
Sun Belt-Troy/Appalachian State
Mid America- Toledo
Conference USA- FAU led by Lane Kiffin- Daniel Tosh’s long lost twin brother.
Why does a team that couldn’t even win their conference deserve to be in the same sentence as a national championship.A National championship means that they are the best team in college football.If the SEC determined that Alabama WAS NOT the best in their conference, how can they have a chance over other teams that DID win out in their conferences.
Why is Alabama ranked over Auburn who at least made it to their conference title game?
Why is Alabama ranked over Ohio State who WON their conference championship?
What about Wisconsin who made it to their conference title game and lost to Ohio State?
You can’t tell me that Alabama had a stronger schedule, playing teams like Colorado State and Mercer College.
How did this happen?Well it is the decision of the College Football Playoff Selection Committee.
13 Men decide College Football Champions, where millions and millions of dollars are redistributed to the winners and the losers.2 of those men are directly tied to the SEC, 2 more have strong ties to the SEC.2 others have their teams in the Playoff.
We have a proposition for the NCAA and the College Football Playoff committee, we expand the playoff to all Division 1-A Conference Champions.
Why would this be an issue really?If you win your conference, you play conference champions to find the national champion?
You can determine seeding based on conference strength.We currently have 10 conferences plus the independent schools. That would mean The 10 conferences play and two wildcard teams determined by a selection committee.We then see who the victors are.The College football season ends too soon anyways.What is another 3 weeks?More money for schools.
This ensures a fair system no matter what.And avoids obvious favoritism by a selection committee putting two SEC teams in the championship playoffs.It removes human bias out of the equation.Why should the college football championship be based on the selection of 13 men?Why have we not put in place a fair system based on winning games?The answer is greed.Money.The SEC has a firm grasp on the college football system and does not want to relinquish control.
The only way to make this fair, is to include all conference champions and even include two wild card teams in the picture.
Do not ruin the sport any further with a bureaucratic system.Do not turn it into the NFL and alienate your fans.It will not end pretty for anyone.
What do you think?Will expansion of the playoff work?
Should conference champions have more of a right to a national championship?
