The judge that decided to halt President Trumps policy banning admittance to the US from 7 mainly Muslim countries was wrong.
The policy which he ruled illegal was passed by Congress and Congress gave the president “the unreviewable authority to suspend the admission of any class of visitor”. I may be simple-minded but to my way of thinking, if something is voted in by the representatives of the people, in a democracy that means that it becomes the policy.
The only way this should be debated is whether it is constitutional and this would have to be examined by the Supreme Court. If they find that it is unconstitutional then fine, but for a judge to second guess Congress is wrong.
What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into U.S.?
It is all very well for people to be complaining about this policy and I understand why. I bet the people of France wish that their Government had taken strong actions to protect them, perhaps their security situation would be better than it is at the moment. I personally would welcome strong actions to protect Britain if the Government felt that it was necessary. As long as there are safeguards in place to ensure that the Government is not acting as a dictator.
Just been watching Newswatch on BBC One and the people that write in to complain about Nigel Farage being given airtime this week should stop moaning. Nigel Farage was, at one time, a loan voice urging Britain to leave the EU and everyone said he was mad. In the week that Parliament passes the bill to trigger article 50, I cannot think of a more appropriate person to interview.
This week he was also a news item himself following his brilliant attack on the EU parliament as you can see here. On matters relating to Europe he is not given disproportionate coverage, in 2014 UKIP, the party that he lead, won the European parliamentary elections in the UK with 4,376,635 votes. Perhaps this is a case of those on the other side of the referendum still having the taste of sour grapes in their mouths.
You have to see this video, it just shows how uncomfortable the truth can be sometimes. I have never voted UKIP and don’t believe I ever would but sometimes a politician comes along who just says it as it is, or as you think it; but would never actually say. What a shame he did not stay in the Conservative Party, it’s a real shame, the more politicians speak the truth the better.
The European Parliament should be ashamed of itself, it is totally undemocratic and heading toward massive failure. People will only be ruled in this way for so long and then it will all come crashing down.
I have been chatting to support staff for hours over the last few days, I do not envy them because I’m sure they try their best but honestly! The amount of times you have to say the same story over and over and over again. I feel as though I am going mad or is it the rest of the world that has gone mad, my good god, no wonder the world is in such a state. They then have the cheek to ask for a review of their performance once the chat has ended!! Really, oh well rant over!
