Executive Order Protecting The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States

EXECUTIVE ORDER

– – – – – – –

PROTECTING THE NATION FROM FOREIGN TERRORIST ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES

 

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and to protect the Nation from terrorist activities by foreign nationals admitted to the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows:

 

Section 1.  Policy and Purpose.  (a)  It is the policy of the United States to protect its citizens from terrorist attacks, including those committed by foreign nationals.  The screening and vetting protocols and procedures associated with the visa-issuance process and the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) play a crucial role in detecting foreign nationals who may commit, aid, or support acts of terrorism and in preventing those individuals from entering the United States.  It is therefore the policy of the United States to improve the screening and vetting protocols and procedures associated with the visa-issuance process and the USRAP.

 

(b)  On January 27, 2017, to implement this policy, I issued Executive Order 13769 (Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States).

 

(i)    Among other actions, Executive Order 13769 suspended for 90 days the entry of certain aliens from seven countries:  Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.  These are countries that had already been identified as presenting heightened concerns about terrorism and travel to the United States.  Specifically, the suspension applied to countries referred to in, or designated under, section 217(a)(12) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12), in which Congress restricted use of the Visa Waiver Program for nationals of, and aliens recently present in, (A) Iraq or Syria, (B) any country designated by the Secretary of State as a state sponsor of terrorism (currently Iran, Syria, and Sudan), and (C) any other country designated as a country of concern by the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence.  In 2016, the Secretary of Homeland Security designated Libya, Somalia, and Yemen as additional countries of concern for travel purposes, based on consideration of three statutory factors related to terrorism and national security:  “(I) whether the presence of an alien in the country or area increases the likelihood that the alien is a credible threat to the national security of the United States; (II) whether a foreign terrorist organization has a significant presence in the country or area; and (III) whether the country or area is a safe haven for terrorists.”  8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12)(D)(ii).  Additionally, Members of Congress have expressed concerns about screening and vetting procedures following recent terrorist attacks in this country and in Europe.

 

(ii)   In ordering the temporary suspension of entry described in subsection (b)(i) of this section, I exercised my authority under Article II of the Constitution and under section 212(f) of the INA, which provides in relevant part:  “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.”  8 U.S.C. 1182(f).  Under these authorities, I determined that, for a brief period of 90 days, while existing screening and vetting procedures were under review, the entry into the United States of certain aliens from the seven identified countries — each afflicted by terrorism in a manner that compromised the ability of the United States to rely on normal decision-making procedures about travel to the United States — would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.  Nonetheless, I permitted the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security to grant case-by-case waivers when they determined that it was in the national interest to do so.

 

(iii)  Executive Order 13769 also suspended the USRAP for 120 days.  Terrorist groups have sought to infiltrate several nations through refugee programs.  Accordingly, I temporarily suspended the USRAP pending a review of our procedures for screening and vetting refugees.  Nonetheless, I permitted the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security to jointly grant case-by-case waivers when they determined that it was in the national interest to do so.

 

(iv)   Executive Order 13769 did not provide a basis for discriminating for or against members of any particular religion.  While that order allowed for prioritization of refugee claims from members of persecuted religious minority groups, that priority applied to refugees from every nation, including those in which Islam is a minority religion, and it applied to minority sects within a religion.  That order was not motivated by animus toward any religion, but was instead intended to protect the ability of religious minorities — whoever they are and wherever they reside — to avail themselves of the USRAP in light of their particular challenges and circumstances.

 

(c)  The implementation of Executive Order 13769 has been delayed by litigation.  Most significantly, enforcement of critical provisions of that order has been temporarily halted by court orders that apply nationwide and extend even to foreign nationals with no prior or substantial connection to the United States.  On February 9, 2017, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit declined to stay or narrow one such order pending the outcome of further judicial proceedings, while noting that the “political branches are far better equipped to make appropriate distinctions” about who should be covered by a suspension of entry or of refugee admissions.

 

(d)  Nationals from the countries previously identified under section 217(a)(12) of the INA warrant additional scrutiny in connection with our immigration policies because the conditions in these countries present heightened threats.  Each of these countries is a state sponsor of terrorism, has been significantly compromised by terrorist organizations, or contains active conflict zones.  Any of these circumstances diminishes the foreign government’s willingness or ability to share or validate important information about individuals seeking to travel to the United States.  Moreover, the significant presence in each of these countries of terrorist organizations, their members, and others exposed to those organizations increases the chance that conditions will be exploited to enable terrorist operatives or sympathizers to travel to the United States.  Finally, once foreign nationals from these countries are admitted to the United States, it is often difficult to remove them, because many of these countries typically delay issuing, or refuse to issue, travel documents.

 

(e)  The following are brief descriptions, taken in part from the Department of State’s Country Reports on Terrorism 2015 (June 2016), of some of the conditions in six of the previously designated countries that demonstrate why their nationals continue to present heightened risks to the security of the United States:

 

(i)    Iran.  Iran has been designated as a state sponsor of terrorism since 1984 and continues to support various terrorist groups, including Hizballah, Hamas, and terrorist groups in Iraq.  Iran has also been linked to support for al-Qa’ida and has permitted al-Qa’ida to transport funds and fighters through Iran to Syria and South Asia.  Iran does not cooperate with the United States in counterterrorism efforts.

 

(ii)   Libya.  Libya is an active combat zone, with hostilities between the internationally recognized government and its rivals.  In many parts of the country, security and law enforcement functions are provided by armed militias rather than state institutions.  Violent extremist groups, including the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), have exploited these conditions to expand their presence in the country.  The Libyan government provides some cooperation with the United States’ counterterrorism efforts, but it is unable to secure thousands of miles of its land and maritime borders, enabling the illicit flow of weapons, migrants, and foreign terrorist fighters.  The United States Embassy in Libya suspended its operations in 2014.

 

(iii)  Somalia.  Portions of Somalia have been terrorist safe havens.  Al-Shabaab, an al-Qa’ida-affiliated terrorist group, has operated in the country for years and continues to plan and mount operations within Somalia and in neighboring countries.  Somalia has porous borders, and most countries do not recognize Somali identity documents.  The Somali government cooperates with the United States in some counterterrorism operations but does not have the capacity to sustain military pressure on or to investigate suspected terrorists.

 

(iv)   Sudan.  Sudan has been designated as a state sponsor of terrorism since 1993 because of its support for international terrorist groups, including Hizballah and Hamas.  Historically, Sudan provided safe havens for al-Qa’ida and other terrorist groups to meet and train.  Although Sudan’s support to al-Qa’ida has ceased and it provides some cooperation with the United States’ counterterrorism efforts, elements of core al-Qa’ida and ISIS-linked terrorist groups remain active in the country.

 

(v)    Syria.  Syria has been designated as a state sponsor of terrorism since 1979.  The Syrian government is engaged in an ongoing military conflict against ISIS and others for control of portions of the country.  At the same time, Syria continues to support other terrorist groups.  It has allowed or encouraged extremists to pass through its territory to enter Iraq.  ISIS continues to attract foreign fighters to Syria and to use its base in Syria to plot or encourage attacks around the globe, including in the United States.  The United States Embassy in Syria suspended its operations in 2012.  Syria does not cooperate with the United States’ counterterrorism efforts.

 

(vi)   Yemen.  Yemen is the site of an ongoing conflict between the incumbent government and the Houthi-led opposition.  Both ISIS and a second group, al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), have exploited this conflict to expand their presence in Yemen and to carry out hundreds of attacks.  Weapons and other materials smuggled across Yemen’s porous borders are used to finance AQAP and other terrorist activities.  In 2015, the United States Embassy in Yemen suspended its operations, and embassy staff were relocated out of the country.  Yemen has been supportive of, but has not been able to cooperate fully with, the United States in counterterrorism efforts.

 

(f)  In light of the conditions in these six countries, until the assessment of current screening and vetting procedures required by section 2 of this order is completed, the risk of erroneously permitting entry of a national of one of these countries who intends to commit terrorist acts or otherwise harm the national security of the United States is unacceptably high.  Accordingly, while that assessment is ongoing, I am imposing a temporary pause on the entry of nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, subject to categorical exceptions and case-by-case waivers, as described in section 3 of this order.

 

(g)  Iraq presents a special case.  Portions of Iraq remain active combat zones.  Since 2014, ISIS has had dominant influence over significant territory in northern and central Iraq.  Although that influence has been significantly reduced due to the efforts and sacrifices of the Iraqi government and armed forces, working along with a United States-led coalition, the ongoing conflict has impacted the Iraqi government’s capacity to secure its borders and to identify fraudulent travel documents.  Nevertheless, the close cooperative relationship between the United States and the democratically elected Iraqi government, the strong United States diplomatic presence in Iraq, the significant presence of United States forces in Iraq, and Iraq’s commitment to combat ISIS justify different treatment for Iraq.  In particular, those Iraqi government forces that have fought to regain more than half of the territory previously dominated by ISIS have shown steadfast determination and earned enduring respect as they battle an armed group that is the common enemy of Iraq and the United States.  In addition, since Executive Order 13769 was issued, the Iraqi government has expressly undertaken steps to enhance travel documentation, information sharing, and the return of Iraqi nationals subject to final orders of removal.  Decisions about issuance of visas or granting admission to Iraqi nationals should be subjected to additional scrutiny to determine if applicants have connections with ISIS or other terrorist organizations, or otherwise pose a risk to either national security or public safety.

 

(h)  Recent history shows that some of those who have entered the United States through our immigration system have proved to be threats to our national security.  Since 2001, hundreds of persons born abroad have been convicted of terrorism-related crimes in the United States.  They have included not just persons who came here legally on visas but also individuals who first entered the country as refugees.  For example, in January 2013, two Iraqi nationals admitted to the United States as refugees in 2009 were sentenced to 40 years and to life in prison, respectively, for multiple terrorism-related offenses.  And in October 2014, a native of Somalia who had been brought to the United States as a child refugee and later became a naturalized United States citizen was sentenced to 30 years in prison for attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction as part of a plot to detonate a bomb at a crowded Christmas-tree-lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon.  The Attorney General has reported to me that more than 300 persons who entered the United States as refugees are currently the subjects of counterterrorism investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

 

(i)  Given the foregoing, the entry into the United States of foreign nationals who may commit, aid, or support acts of terrorism remains a matter of grave concern.  In light of the Ninth Circuit’s observation that the political branches are better suited to determine the appropriate scope of any suspensions than are the courts, and in order to avoid spending additional time pursuing litigation, I am revoking Executive Order 13769 and replacing it with this order, which expressly excludes from the suspensions categories of aliens that have prompted judicial concerns and which clarifies or refines the approach to certain other issues or categories of affected aliens.

 

Sec. 2.  Temporary Suspension of Entry for Nationals of Countries of Particular Concern During Review Period.  (a)  The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, shall conduct a worldwide review to identify whether, and if so what, additional information will be needed from each foreign country to adjudicate an application by a national of that country for a visa, admission, or other benefit under the INA (adjudications) in order to determine that the individual is not a security or public-safety threat.  The Secretary of Homeland Security may conclude that certain information is needed from particular countries even if it is not needed from every country.

 

(b)  The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, shall submit to the President a report on the results of the worldwide review described in subsection (a) of this section, including the Secretary of Homeland Security’s determination of the information needed from each country for adjudications and a list of countries that do not provide adequate information, within 20 days of the effective date of this order.  The Secretary of Homeland Security shall provide a copy of the report to the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Director of National Intelligence.

 

(c)  To temporarily reduce investigative burdens on relevant agencies during the review period described in subsection (a) of this section, to ensure the proper review and maximum utilization of available resources for the screening and vetting of foreign nationals, to ensure that adequate standards are established to prevent infiltration by foreign terrorists, and in light of the national security concerns referenced in section 1 of this order, I hereby proclaim, pursuant to sections 212(f) and 215(a) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f) and 1185(a), that the unrestricted entry into the United States of nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.  I therefore direct that the entry into the United States of nationals of those six countries be suspended for 90 days from the effective date of this order, subject to the limitations, waivers, and exceptions set forth in sections 3 and 12 of this order.

 

(d)  Upon submission of the report described in subsection (b) of this section regarding the information needed from each country for adjudications, the Secretary of State shall request that all foreign governments that do not supply such information regarding their nationals begin providing it within 50 days of notification.

 

(e)  After the period described in subsection (d) of this section expires, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, shall submit to the President a list of countries recommended for inclusion in a Presidential proclamation that would prohibit the entry of appropriate categories of foreign nationals of countries that have not provided the information requested until they do so or until the Secretary of Homeland Security certifies that the country has an adequate plan to do so, or has adequately shared information through other means.  The Secretary of State, the Attorney General, or the Secretary of Homeland Security may also submit to the President the names of additional countries for which any of them recommends other lawful restrictions or limitations deemed necessary for the security or welfare of the United States.

 

(f)  At any point after the submission of the list described in subsection (e) of this section, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, may submit to the President the names of any additional countries recommended for similar treatment, as well as the names of any countries that they recommend should be removed from the scope of a proclamation described in subsection (e) of this section.

 

(g)  The Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall submit to the President a joint report on the progress in implementing this order within 60 days of the effective date of this order, a second report within 90 days of the effective date of this order, a third report within 120 days of the effective date of this order, and a fourth report within 150 days of the effective date of this order.

 

Sec. 3.  Scope and Implementation of Suspension.

 

(a)  Scope.  Subject to the exceptions set forth in subsection (b) of this section and any waiver under subsection (c) of this section, the suspension of entry pursuant to section 2 of this order shall apply only to foreign nationals of the designated countries who:

 

(i)    are outside the United States on the effective date of this order;

 

(ii)   did not have a valid visa at 5:00 p.m., eastern standard time on January 27, 2017; and

 

(iii)  do not have a valid visa on the effective date of this order.

 

(b)  Exceptions.  The suspension of entry pursuant to section 2 of this order shall not apply to:

 

(i)    any lawful permanent resident of the United States;

 

(ii)   any foreign national who is admitted to or paroled into the United States on or after the effective date of this order;

 

(iii)  any foreign national who has a document other than a visa, valid on the effective date of this order or issued on any date thereafter, that permits him or her to travel to the United States and seek entry or admission, such as an advance parole document;

 

(iv)   any dual national of a country designated under section 2 of this order when the individual is traveling on a passport issued by a non-designated country;

 

(v)    any foreign national traveling on a diplomatic or diplomatic-type visa, North Atlantic Treaty Organization visa, C-2 visa for travel to the United Nations, or G-1, G-2, G-3, or G-4 visa; or

 

(vi)   any foreign national who has been granted asylum; any refugee who has already been admitted to the United States; or any individual who has been granted withholding of removal, advance parole, or protection under the Convention Against Torture.

 

(c)  Waivers.  Notwithstanding the suspension of entry pursuant to section 2 of this order, a consular officer, or, as appropriate, the Commissioner, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), or the Commissioner’s delegee, may, in the consular officer’s or the CBP official’s discretion, decide on a case-by-case basis to authorize the issuance of a visa to, or to permit the entry of, a foreign national for whom entry is otherwise suspended if the foreign national has demonstrated to the officer’s satisfaction that denying entry during the suspension period would cause undue hardship, and that his or her entry would not pose a threat to national security and would be in the national interest.  Unless otherwise specified by the Secretary of Homeland Security, any waiver issued by a consular officer as part of the visa issuance process will be effective both for the issuance of a visa and any subsequent entry on that visa, but will leave all other requirements for admission or entry unchanged.  Case-by-case waivers could be appropriate in circumstances such as the following:

 

(i)     the foreign national has previously been admitted to the United States for a continuous period of work, study, or other long-term activity, is outside the United States on the effective date of this order, seeks to reenter the United States to resume that activity, and the denial of reentry during the suspension period would impair that activity;

 

(ii)    the foreign national has previously established significant contacts with the United States but is outside the United States on the effective date of this order for work, study, or other lawful activity;

 

(iii)   the foreign national seeks to enter the United States for significant business or professional obligations and the denial of entry during the suspension period would impair those obligations;

 

(iv)    the foreign national seeks to enter the United States to visit or reside with a close family member (e.g., a spouse, child, or parent) who is a United States citizen, lawful permanent resident, or alien lawfully admitted on a valid nonimmigrant visa, and the denial of entry during the suspension period would cause undue hardship;

 

(v)     the foreign national is an infant, a young child or adoptee, an individual needing urgent medical care, or someone whose entry is otherwise justified by the special circumstances of the case;

 

(vi)    the foreign national has been employed by, or on behalf of, the United States Government (or is an eligible dependent of such an employee) and the employee can document that he or she has provided faithful and valuable service to the United States Government;

 

(vii)   the foreign national is traveling for purposes related to an international organization designated under the International Organizations Immunities Act (IOIA), 22 U.S.C. 288 et seq., traveling for purposes of conducting meetings or business with the United States Government, or traveling to conduct business on behalf of an international organization not designated under the IOIA;

 

(viii)  the foreign national is a landed Canadian immigrant who applies for a visa at a location within Canada; or

 

(ix)    the foreign national is traveling as a United States Government-sponsored exchange visitor.

 

Sec. 4.  Additional Inquiries Related to Nationals of Iraq.  An application by any Iraqi national for a visa, admission, or other immigration benefit should be subjected to thorough review, including, as appropriate, consultation with a designee of the Secretary of Defense and use of the additional information that has been obtained in the context of the close U.S.-Iraqi security partnership, since Executive Order 13769 was issued, concerning individuals suspected of ties to ISIS or other terrorist organizations and individuals coming from territories controlled or formerly controlled by ISIS.  Such review shall include consideration of whether the applicant has connections with ISIS or other terrorist organizations or with territory that is or has been under the dominant influence of ISIS, as well as any other information bearing on whether the applicant may be a threat to commit acts of terrorism or otherwise threaten the national security or public safety of the United States.

 

Sec. 5.  Implementing Uniform Screening and Vetting Standards for All Immigration Programs.  (a)  The Secretary of State, the Attorney General, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Director of National Intelligence shall implement a program, as part of the process for adjudications, to identify individuals who seek to enter the United States on a fraudulent basis, who support terrorism, violent extremism, acts of violence toward any group or class of people within the United States, or who present a risk of causing harm subsequent to their entry.  This program shall include the development of a uniform baseline for screening and vetting standards and procedures, such as in-person interviews; a database of identity documents proffered by applicants to ensure that duplicate documents are not used by multiple applicants; amended application forms that include questions aimed at identifying fraudulent answers and malicious intent; a mechanism to ensure that applicants are who they claim to be; a mechanism to assess whether applicants may commit, aid, or support any kind of violent, criminal, or terrorist acts after entering the United States; and any other appropriate means for ensuring the proper collection of all information necessary for a rigorous evaluation of all grounds of inadmissibility or grounds for the denial of other immigration benefits.

 

(b)  The Secretary of Homeland Security, in conjunction with the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Director of National Intelligence, shall submit to the President an initial report on the progress of the program described in subsection (a) of this section within 60 days of the effective date of this order, a second report within 100 days of the effective date of this order, and a third report within 200 days of the effective date of this order.

 

Sec. 6.  Realignment of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for Fiscal Year 2017.  (a)  The Secretary of State shall suspend travel of refugees into the United States under the USRAP, and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall suspend decisions on applications for refugee status, for 120 days after the effective date of this order, subject to waivers pursuant to subsection (c) of this section.  During the 120-day period, the Secretary of State, in conjunction with the Secretary of Homeland Security and in consultation with the Director of National Intelligence, shall review the USRAP application and adjudication processes to determine what additional procedures should be used to ensure that individuals seeking admission as refugees do not pose a threat to the security and welfare of the United States, and shall implement such additional procedures.  The suspension described in this subsection shall not apply to refugee applicants who, before the effective date of this order, have been formally scheduled for transit by the Department of State.  The Secretary of State shall resume travel of refugees into the United States under the USRAP 120 days after the effective date of this order, and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall resume making decisions on applications for refugee status only for stateless persons and nationals of countries for which the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Director of National Intelligence have jointly determined that the additional procedures implemented pursuant to this subsection are adequate to ensure the security and welfare of the United States.

 

(b)  Pursuant to section 212(f) of the INA, I hereby proclaim that the entry of more than 50,000 refugees in fiscal year 2017 would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and thus suspend any entries in excess of that number until such time as I determine that additional entries would be in the national interest.

 

(c)  Notwithstanding the temporary suspension imposed pursuant to subsection (a) of this section, the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security may jointly determine to admit individuals to the United States as refugees on a case-by-case basis, in their discretion, but only so long as they determine that the entry of such individuals as refugees is in the national interest and does not pose a threat to the security or welfare of the United States, including in circumstances such as the following:  the individual’s entry would enable the United States to conform its conduct to a preexisting international agreement or arrangement, or the denial of entry would cause undue hardship.

 

(d)  It is the policy of the executive branch that, to the extent permitted by law and as practicable, State and local jurisdictions be granted a role in the process of determining the placement or settlement in their jurisdictions of aliens eligible to be admitted to the United States as refugees.  To that end, the Secretary of State shall examine existing law to determine the extent to which, consistent with applicable law, State and local jurisdictions may have greater involvement in the process of determining the placement or resettlement of refugees in their jurisdictions, and shall devise a proposal to lawfully promote such involvement.

 

Sec. 7.  Rescission of Exercise of Authority Relating to the Terrorism Grounds of Inadmissibility.  The Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall, in consultation with the Attorney General, consider rescinding the exercises of authority permitted by section 212(d)(3)(B) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(d)(3)(B), relating to the terrorism grounds of inadmissibility, as well as any related implementing directives or guidance.

 

Sec. 8.  Expedited Completion of the Biometric Entry-Exit Tracking System.  (a)  The Secretary of Homeland Security shall expedite the completion and implementation of a biometric entry‑exit tracking system for in-scope travelers to the United States, as recommended by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.

 

(b)  The Secretary of Homeland Security shall submit to the President periodic reports on the progress of the directive set forth in subsection (a) of this section.  The initial report shall be submitted within 100 days of the effective date of this order, a second report shall be submitted within 200 days of the effective date of this order, and a third report shall be submitted within 365 days of the effective date of this order.  The Secretary of Homeland Security shall submit further reports every 180 days thereafter until the system is fully deployed and operational.

 

Sec. 9.  Visa Interview Security.  (a)  The Secretary of State shall immediately suspend the Visa Interview Waiver Program and ensure compliance with section 222 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1202, which requires that all individuals seeking a nonimmigrant visa undergo an in-person interview, subject to specific statutory exceptions.  This suspension shall not apply to any foreign national traveling on a diplomatic or diplomatic-type visa, North Atlantic Treaty Organization visa, C-2 visa for travel to the United Nations, or G-1, G-2, G-3, or G-4 visa; traveling for purposes related to an international organization designated under the IOIA; or traveling for purposes of conducting meetings or business with the United States Government.

 

(b)  To the extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations, the Secretary of State shall immediately expand the Consular Fellows Program, including by substantially increasing the number of Fellows, lengthening or making permanent the period of service, and making language training at the Foreign Service Institute available to Fellows for assignment to posts outside of their area of core linguistic ability, to ensure that nonimmigrant visa-interview wait times are not unduly affected.

 

Sec. 10.  Visa Validity Reciprocity.  The Secretary of State shall review all nonimmigrant visa reciprocity agreements and arrangements to ensure that they are, with respect to each visa classification, truly reciprocal insofar as practicable with respect to validity period and fees, as required by sections 221(c) and 281 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1201(c) and 1351, and other treatment.  If another country does not treat United States nationals seeking nonimmigrant visas in a truly reciprocal manner, the Secretary of State shall adjust the visa validity period, fee schedule, or other treatment to match the treatment of United States nationals by that foreign country, to the extent practicable.

 

Sec. 11.  Transparency and Data Collection.  (a)  To be more transparent with the American people and to implement more effectively policies and practices that serve the national interest, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Attorney General, shall, consistent with applicable law and national security, collect and make publicly available the following information:

 

(i)    information regarding the number of foreign nationals in the United States who have been charged with terrorism-related offenses while in the United States; convicted of terrorism-related offenses while in the United States; or removed from the United States based on terrorism-related activity, affiliation with or provision of material support to a terrorism-related organization, or any other national-security-related reasons;

 

(ii)   information regarding the number of foreign nationals in the United States who have been radicalized after entry into the United States and who have engaged in terrorism-related acts, or who have provided material support to terrorism-related organizations in countries that pose a threat to the United States;

 

(iii)  information regarding the number and types of acts of gender-based violence against women, including so-called “honor killings,” in the United States by foreign nationals; and

 

(iv)   any other information relevant to public safety and security as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security or the Attorney General, including information on the immigration status of foreign nationals charged with major offenses.

 

(b)  The Secretary of Homeland Security shall release the initial report under subsection (a) of this section within 180 days of the effective date of this order and shall include information for the period from September 11, 2001, until the date of the initial report.  Subsequent reports shall be issued every 180 days thereafter and reflect the period since the previous report.

 

Sec. 12.  Enforcement.  (a)  The Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall consult with appropriate domestic and international partners, including countries and organizations, to ensure efficient, effective, and appropriate implementation of the actions directed in this order.

 

(b)  In implementing this order, the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including, as appropriate, those providing an opportunity for individuals to claim a fear of persecution or torture, such as the credible fear determination for aliens covered by section 235(b)(1)(A) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1225(b)(1)(A).

 

(c)  No immigrant or nonimmigrant visa issued before the effective date of this order shall be revoked pursuant to this order.

 

(d)  Any individual whose visa was marked revoked or marked canceled as a result of Executive Order 13769 shall be entitled to a travel document confirming that the individual is permitted to travel to the United States and seek entry.  Any prior cancellation or revocation of a visa that was solely pursuant to Executive Order 13769 shall not be the basis of inadmissibility for any future determination about entry or admissibility.

trump contra a midia politicamente correta

23/02/2017

Para entender por que Donald Trump disse que a grande mídia é inimiga dos americanos é necessário entender qual é a agenda da velha imprensa e lembrar que o jornalismo, hoje, se resume à desinformação e à engenharia social.

guerra

Na semana passada, o Presidente Donald Trump disse algo que é óbvio a qualquer pessoa que não esteja totalmente descolada da realidade: a grande mídia (que ele chama corretamente de fake news) é inimiga do povo americano.

The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

DONALD TRUMP DÁ A VOLTA POR CIMA E AGORA FALA DIRETAMENTE, AO VIVO, COM O POVO AMERICANO E DETONA A MÍDIA ‘FAKE NEWS’

Público superlotou um gigantesco hangar do Aeroporto Internacional de Merlbourne, em Orlando, Flórida, para ver e ouvir Donald Trump.

Com a profusão de “fake news”, pela grande mídia, Trump decidiu falar diretamente com o povo americano.

Logo abaixo dois vídeos mostram Donald Trump com dois de seus netos pequenos e outro com cena do mega evento que reuniu milhares de pessoas no Aeroporto Internacional em Orlando, Flórida.

Para variar, a grande mídia continua escamoteando todas estas informações. Clique sobre a imagem para vê-la ampliada

O Presidente Donald Trump encontrou uma forma muito original para furar o bloqueio da grande mídia e resolveu falar diretamente com o povo norte-americano. Esse bloqueio não significa que a mídia não fale de Trump. Todavia quando se reporta a ele o faz por meio daquilo que ele mesmo, Trump, apelidou de “fake news’, ou seja, notícias falsas.

Se a grande mídia, agora órfã do reinado de Obama e seus sequazes, não aceita o resultado da eleição presidencial bombardeando a White House diariamente com as indecentes “fake news”, Trump decidiu reeditar o esquema que o levou à Presidência, isto é, falar diretamente com o povo americano.
O início desse contato direto com os americanos começou neste sábado ao cair da tarde e início da noite num hangar do Aeroporto Internacional de Melbourne, em Orlando, na Flórida, que reuniu um gigantesco público.
https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FDonaldTrump%2Fvideos%2F10158671130195725%2F&show_text=0&width=400
Os estimados leitores aqui do blog poderão indagar por que dou tanto destaque para análises e comentários da respeito da política norte-americana. É que insisto em afirmar que a eleição de Donald Trump à Presidência dos Estados Unidos e o maior acontecimento político deste século XXI e tem efeito benéfico sobre todo o Ocidente. É uma espécie de uma grande freada na desabalada carreira pela destruição da Civilização Ocidental. Lembram quando Hussein Obama paparicava Lula e fechava os olhos da a comunização da América Latina e Caribe? Isto é apenas um pontinho da nefasta política internacional levada a efeito pelo ex-ocupante da Casa Branca e seus sequazes do Partido Democrata.

O que aconteceu recentemente no Brasil que culminou com o afastamento de Lula e sua quadrilha do poder foi longe demais justamente por ser parte desse plano diabólico do esquerdismo transnacional que era alimentado por Hussein Obama e seus asseclas do Partido Democrata e de boa parte dos próprios republicanos que já haviam consentido em serem eternos perdedores.

O plano era eternizar os comunistas no poder nos Estados Unidos. Aliás, a desindustrialização do gigante norte-americano foi uma das ações mais perversas de Obama e sua gente, aliada a abertura total das fronteiras para a invasão islâmica da América. Donald Trump, portanto, não estava nos planos do esquerdismo globalista. Mas o povo norte-americano, velho de guerra, sentiu o cheiro de carne queimada e viu em Donald Trump o único candidato que poderia por fim a esse desastre anunciado.

CONTATO DIRETO COM O POVO

O comportamento da grande mídia, agora mais conhecida como “Fake News”, é este que todos podem ver, ler e ouvir. Portanto, Trump falar com o povo norte-americano diretamente como fez neste final de semana na Flórida, é algo desconcertante para a canalhada da grande mídia. Já se pode ver a choradeira dos meninos birrentos da grande mídia que continuarão a produzir Fake News.

Insisto que o sucesso de Donald Trump nos Estados Unidos é uma bênção para o mundo Ocidental. Ao turbinar a economia americana Donald Trump estará turbinando a economia de todo o bloco ocidental. Ao reorganizar as correntes migratórias e afastar o terror islâmico Trump criará num novo ciclo virtuoso de desenvolvimento e segurança para os povos ocidentais.

Entender essas mudanças é fundamental. E para entendê-las as pessoas têm de possuir um back-ground de informações verdadeiras para não ser iludidas pelas Fake News propaladas pelos andróides dos grande veículos de mídia.

A verdade é que a grande mídia está derretendo. À medida em que a ficha vai caindo para leitores e telespectadores centenas de milhares de tradicionais veículos de comunicação desaparecerão. Aliás, a maioria deles está em situação falimentar ou pré-falimentar. A vitória de Donald Trump jogou a pá de cal sobre os zumbis das redações. Eles estão enlouquecidos, agonizando, estrebuchando.

Daí a profusão de Fake News, ou seja, falsas notícias ou, ainda, notícias verdadeiras porém maquiadas ideologicamente pela canalhada à soldo da ONU, União Europeia e outros organismos multilaterais e ONGs chupins de dinheiro público que operam no mundo inteiro.

Salve a Civilização Ocidental! Compartilhando este post vocês, caros leitores, já estão dando uma força fabulosa para garantir a nossa segurança, os nossos empregos e a tranquilidade de nossas famílias e o futuro dos nossos filhos.

day-without-immigrants

Establishment media widely reported Thursday’s “Day Without Immigrants” protest against President Trump’s enforcement of immigration laws, but how much of an impact did the boycott actually have?

“It was a big deal for the reporters, who are paid to cover this sort of thing,” said Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group FAIR, the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

“I don’t think the rest of the American public really noticed all that much,” he told WND.

The establishment media coverage focused largely on shuttered restaurants at lunch time in the nation’s capital and in largely urban areas such as Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles and New York. Some schools and daycare also were closed.

John Zittrauer, the manager of Burger Tap & Shake in D.C., was hoping the closure of restaurants near Pennsylvania Avenue and on K Street, where many lobbyists work, would be noticed by the Trump administration but acknowledged he was “not optimistic.”

According to the Labor Department, the number of foreign-born workers employed in the U.S. has risen by nearly 3.1 million to 25.9 million since 2007.

But Mehlman said the Day Without Immigrants was a relatively small action comprised mostly of people who are in the country illegally.

Elegant and beautiful! A First Lady to be proud of (finally)!

APRENDERAS

Después de algún tiempo…

Aprenderás la diferencia entre dar la mano y socorrer a un alma; y aprenderás, que amar no significa apoyarse y que compañía, no siempre significa seguridad.

Comenzarás a aprender; que los besos no son contratos, ni regalos ni promesas.

Comenzarás a aceptar tus derrotas con la cabeza erguida y la mirada al frente, con la gracia de un niño y no con la tristeza de un adulto; y aprenderás a construir hoy todos tus caminos, porque el terreno de mañana es incierto para tus proyectos y el futuro, tiene la costumbre de caer en el vacío.

Después de un tiempo…

Aprenderás, que el Sol quema si te expones demasiado. Aceptarás; incluso, que las personas buenas podrían herirte alguna vez y necesitarás perdonarlas.

Aprenderás que hablar puede aliviar los dolores del alma.

Descubrirás que lleva años construir confianza; y apenas unos segundos destruirla, y que tú también podrás hacer cosas de las que te arrepentirás el resto de tu vida.

Aprenderás que las nuevas amistades continúan creciendo a pesar de las distancias; y que no importa que es lo que tienes, sino a quien tienes en la vida y que los buenos amigos, son la familia que nos permiten elegir.

Aprenderás que no tenemos que cambiar de amigos, si estamos dispuestos a aceptar que lo amigos cambian.

Te darás cuenta de que puedes pasar buenos momentos con tu mejor amigo haciendo cualquier cosa; o simplemente nada, sólo por el placer de disfrutar su compañía.

Descubrirás que muchas veces tomas a la ligera a las personas que más te importan; y por eso siempre debemos decir a esa persona que la amamos, porque nunca estaremos seguros de cuándo será la última vez que la veamos.

Aprenderás que las circunstancias y el ambiente que nos rodea tiene influencia sobre nosotros, pero que nosotros somos los únicos responsables de lo que hacemos.

Comenzaras a aprender que no debemos compararnos con los demás, salvo cuando queramos imitarlos para mejorar.

Descubrirás que lleva mucho tiempo llegar a ser la persona que quieres ser; y que el tiempo, es corto.

Aprenderás que no importa donde llegaste; sino a donde te diriges, y si no lo sabes, cualquier lugar sirve.

Aprenderás que si no controlas tus actos ellos te controlan; y que ser flexible no significa ser débil o no tener personalidad, porque no importa cuán delicada y frágil sea una situación: Siempre existen dos lados.

Aprenderás que héroes, son las personas que hicieron lo que era requerido y enfrentaron las consecuencias.

Aprenderás que la paciencia, requiere mucha práctica. Descubrirás que algunas veces, la persona que esperas que te patee cuando te caes, tal vez sea una de las pocas que ayuden a levantarte.

Madurar tiene más que ver con lo que has aprendido de la experiencia, que con los años vividos.

Aprenderás que hay mucho más de tus padres en ti, de lo que supones.

Aprenderás que nunca se debe decir a un niño que sus sueños son tonterías, porque pocas cosas son tan humillantes; y sería una tragedia si lo creyese, porque le estarás quitando la esperanza.

Aprenderás que cuando sientes rabia, tienes derecho a tenerla, pero eso no te da el derecho a ser cruel.

Descubrirás que solo porque alguien no te ama de la forma que quieres, no significa que no te ame con todo lo que puede, porque hay personas que nos aman, pero no saben cómo demostrarlo.

No siempre es suficiente ser perdonado por alguien; algunas veces, tendrás que aprender a perdonarte a ti mismo.

Aprenderás que con la misma severidad con que juzgas; también serás juzgado y en algunos momentos, condenado.

Aprenderás que no importa en cuantos pedazos tu corazón se partió, el mundo no se detiene para que lo arregles.

Aprenderás que el tiempo no es algo que puedes volver hacia atrás; por lo tanto debes cultivar tu propio jardín y decorar tu alma, en vez de esperar que alguien te traiga flores.

Entonces, y sólo entonces, sabrás realmente lo que eres capaz de soportar; que eres fuerte y que podrás ir mucho más lejos de lo que pensabas, cuando creías que no se podía más.

Es que realmente la vida vale, cuando tienes el valor de enfrentarla.

Isto era ser conservador no Velho Oeste no ano de 1970

Os 50 anos da Marcha para Washington – I Have a Dream

STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH

Laura and I are proud to join our fellow Americans in commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech.

When Reverend King came to Washington, D.C., in the summer of 1963, his purpose was to hold our Nation to the standards spelled out in the Declaration of Independence. He called all of us to live up to that document’s fundamental promise and the underpinning of our founding – that all of us are created equal and endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. From the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, with thousands gathered around him, Dr. King looked out over the American capital and uttered simple, powerful words that changed the hearts of millions. The dream he had spread a message of hope, justice, and brotherhood that took hold in the hearts of men and women around the world.

Our country has come a long way since that bright afternoon 50 years ago; yet our journey to justice is not complete. Just to the East of the Lincoln Memorial, where President Obama will speak on Wednesday, stands the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. There on the National Mall our President, whose story reflects the promise of America, will help us honor the man who inspired millions to redeem that promise.

Dr. King was on this Earth just 39 years, but the ideals that guided his life of conscience and purpose are eternal. Honoring him requires the commitment of every one of us. There’s still a need for every American to help hasten the day when Dr. King’s vision is made real in every community – when what truly matters is not the color of a person’s skin, but the content of their character.

Laura and I thank the King family and all who work to carry on the legacy of a great man and the promise of a great Nation. May we continue to march toward the day when the dignity and humanity of every person is respected. And may God continue to bless America.

Letter From 12-Week-Old Unborn Baby: Please Don’t Abort Me

Imagem

http://www.lifenews.com/2012/02/08/letter-from-12-week-old-unborn-baby-please-dont-abort-me/

by Adam Cassandra | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 2/8/12 11:57 AM

In New York, abortion of an unborn child after the 24th week of pregnancy is defined as homicide, but prior to that the killing of such a child is legal. This beautiful letter is another creative and truthful attempt to encourage our nation’s leaders to recognize that abortion is not a human right, but rather, ends an innocent human life.

That letter, written from the perspective of the 12-week old baby in the womb, is shared with you below:

Dear Member of the NY State Senate or Assembly:

 

I am not a blob of tissue to be disposed of. When I became a zygote at fertilization, I was already composed of 39,000 genes made up of 3.2 billion base pair sequences. Hard to believe, I know, but it’s scientifically true! These detailed directions for my development have been compared to the amount of information found in two hundred New York City phone books.

After this beginning, I worked actively to prevent any other sperm from fertilizing the same egg, and on my own impetus took a journey down the fallopian tube to implant upon my mother’s uterus.

At 5 weeks, my cerebral cortex was developing, and well before I reached 12 weeks my brain was functioning. I was already responding to stimuli.

So how can you allow me to be tortured? Shouldn’t you be working to protect me from suffering? Why allow me to be torn limb from limb?

At 12 weeks, I am not merely a design for a house yet to be built, I am already “a tiny house that constructs itself larger and more complex through its active self-development towards maturity” (Patrick Lee). If I live and grow to maturity, this growth will not involve a change in my identity or substance, only the development of what’s already there.

I am not a “potential” child, but a real child. Take a good look at the image of me that you received. My mother cannot “choose” to have a child – she already has one! Her only “choice” is whether or not to let me live.

Size has nothing to do with human rights. The sun may be vast in size, but it can’t think or love. It is only matter. It will never be part of an American family and community, nor will it ever serve my country. It will never ponder the mystery of life and the beauty of the night-skies, nor will it ever be able to conceive of the universe or meditate on Scripture.

Small as I am at 12 weeks, I can say that I am more precious than that huge and majestic sun, because I am made in the image of God, the One who created the sun, the night skies and the universe. All those things will pass away, but I am made for eternity.”

Conheça o Tea Party – Um dia o Brasil terá políticos realmente anti comunistas:

19/01/2013

About Us  

http://www.teaparty.org/

  • The Tea Party is a grassroots movement that calls awareness to any issue which challenges the security, sovereignty, or domestic tranquility of our beloved nation, the United States of America. From our founding, the Tea Party represents the voice of the true owners of the United States: WE THE PEOPLE.

Many claim to be the founders of this movement; however, it was the brave souls of the men and women in 1773, known today as the Boston Tea Party, who dared to defy the greatest military might on earth. We are the beneficiaries of their courage.

The Tea Party includes those who possess a strong belief in the foundational Judeo-Christian values embedded in our great founding documents. We believe the responsibility of our beloved nation is etched upon the hearts of true American Patriots from every race, religion, national origin, and walk of life sharing a common belief in the values which made and keep our beloved nation great. This belief led to the creation of the modern-day Tea Party.

Many Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and Independents identify with the premises set forth by the Tea Party Movement, which is striking a chord and ringing true with the American Spirit.

We stand by the Constitution as inherently conservative. We serve as a beacon to the masses that have lost their way, a light illuminating the path to the original intentions of our Founding Fathers. We must raise a choir of voices declaring America must stand on the values which made us great. Only then will the politically blind see and deaf hear!

By joining the Tea Party, you are taking a stand for our nation. You will be upholding the grand principles set forth in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

15 Non-negotiable Core Beliefs

1. Illegal aliens are here illegally.
2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable.
3. A strong military is essential.
4. Special interests must be eliminated.
5. Gun ownership is sacred.
6. Government must be downsized.
7. The national budget must be balanced.
8. Deficit spending must end.
9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal.
10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must.
11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory.
12. Political offices must be available to average citizens.
13. Intrusive government must be stopped.
14. English as our core language is required.
15. Traditional family values are encouraged.

The Tea Party Movement

Reminiscent of Tiananmen Square where a few stood to defy tyranny and demand liberty and democracy, a few patriots stood in protest representing the American people. We were more than lowly protestors; we were the type of Americans the Founding Fathers envisioned over 200 years ago as true Patriots of courage and valor.

TeaParty.org and soon other fearless Patriots began to join in our solitary stance; The Tea was brewing! Young and old, wealthy and poor, patriots of all colors and backgrounds began to rally with a new energy, an energy reminiscent of pictures in old American History books. Word of mouth began to spread. Citizens began calling loved ones, proclaiming, “We must take back our nation!” Many blogged on their laptops, or messaged family and friends. The energy began to sweep across the nation.

The media began to take notice. America was deeply moved, right down to her soul. A new voice began to speak, and a new hope was spawned. Gathering crowds grew from hundreds to thousands, and then swelled to the millions.

As citizens became increasingly frustrated by “politics as usual,” patriots across America began seeking a new voice, one that echoes from the pages of history. What would we name this voice? It soon became obvious, for our very own heritage held the key to unleashing the American Spirit. The Tea Party was the perfect choice. The Tea Party concept was far superior because it removed all the obstacles of party lines along with the baggage of confused issues, and focused only on a few key points.

From this humble beginning a movement was born. The Tea Party Movement, born from obscurity, without funding, without planning, is a spontaneous force shaking the very glass foundation of the oligarchy that rules in our name, but without our blessing.

We took our stand, thousands joined, and then millions assembled across our beloved nation. Today, tens of millions of Patriot voices resonate in unison “We The People Rule!” In spite of ongoing hateful ridicule from socialists and leftists, we stood our post, day by day, month by month and now year in and year out. We will not stop.

Needless to say, this Tea Party Movement has grown far beyond belief, from a handful of brave Patriots to tens of millions. Many have been declared as the founder of the modern-day Tea Party; to that we can say: “The true founders of the Tea Party were the brave Patriots who dared challenge the status quo in 1773; we are merely their beneficiaries.”

A word from TeaParty.Org

Many of America’s dilemmas lay squarely on the shoulders of We The People. Meanwhile, economic issues burden small businesses. However, we must not define ourselves by the calamities in our lives, but by our resolve to pick up the pieces and move on. The power of a few can change a nation, save a people and illuminate a generation.

Commonsense, Conservative, Constitutional Self-Governance Is Our Mode Of Operation. Yes, we are a Christian nation. However, you do not have to be a Christian to enjoy freedom. The Tea Party welcomes all red-blooded U.S. Citizens.

TeaParty.org is the only Tea Party organization praised by Dr. Michael Savage in his book, Trickle Up Poverty, pages 18 through 24. The book is highly recommended!

We may be old fashioned, but we believe it is not foolish to pledge our lives, liberty and sacred honor to the greatest nation that ever was or ever will be. The nation of the people, by the people and for the people, to that we shall strive to carry forward the mantle of the Tea Party, keeping alive the voice of freedom.

100 anos de Ronald Wilson Reagan, aniversário de Reagan, centenário de Reagan, reagan 100 anos, Celebrate freedom and the Gipper’s 100th birthday

WASHINGTON – There’s a whole generation of Americans who don’t remember “Morning in America.”

That’s because it has been more than 20 years since the late Ronald Reagan left the presidency – more popular than the day he moved into the White House following his first landslide election victory in 1980.

Many Americans were just children during Reagan’s eight years in office. Some preparing to vote in 2012 for the first time were born after he left office.

They didn’t get to know the Reagan Revolution first hand.

You can help introduce them to real leadership with some new and original Ronald Reagan products from the WND Superstore – books, videos, banners, pins and bumper stickers – just in time for the Gipper’s 100th birthday Feb. 6.

The unique stylized design of the 2-by-3-foot banner makes it a great gift for the Ronald Reagan fan – a collector’s item suitable for display in any room, office or even for the next tea party.

It’s a unique WND Superstore treatment of the classic “I want you” Uncle Sam posters of the past, but, this time, Reagan is asking Americans to help him fight socialism – as he did throughout his career in Hollywood, the California governor’s office and again as president.

 Reagan bumper sticker

Maybe you would prefer the bumper sticker – which is available both in a magnetic, removable form or as a standard stickie.

 Reagan pin

Or maybe you would prefer to wear the message as a classy pin. It’s a steal at just $2.88!

Suit yourself or get all three at one low sale price.

“Never was the central message of Ronald Reagan needed more in American history,” said Joseph Farah, WND’s chief executive officer and editor.

It’s a great way to mark Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday and to proclaim real hope for a new “Morning in America” in this election year.

While you’re at it, you might want to read up on the way Reagan’s quiet faith led him and the nation in one of the most remarkable periods of American history in “Hand of Providence.”

Reagan books

Farah says you will definitely want to see Reagan in action again in one of the very best documentaries ever done on his role in defeating totalitarian Communism and what his example means for us today in “In the Face of Evil.”

“No video collection is complete without this masterpiece,” says Farah. “I have watched this documentary over and over again with my kids. This needs to be seen by every American.”

Reagan books

Want to know what actions Reagan took immediately to get America back on track? There’s

There’s also “Reagan’s Children,” a book about what the late president meant to a generation now reaching maturity.

Want to know how he defeated Communism against all odds? There’s “The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism” – available both in hardcover and softcover.

“Also, don’t miss Craig Shirley’s wonderful new biography, ‘Rendezvous with Destiny,'” says Farah. “It’s one of the best.”

There’s also the faux picture of Reagan on Mount Rushmore – where many believe he belongs.

Be sure to see the complete line of Reagan memorabilia at the WND Superstore Ronald Reagan department.

Jared Lee Loughner, 22 anos, autor do massacre de Tucson, Arizona, Gabrielle Giffords.

Autor del tiroteo en Arizona es acusado de asesinato e intento de asesinato.

Este joven es el responsable de la masacre de Tucson, autoridades buscan a otro sospechoso

TUCSON, 9 enero 2011 (AFP) – El sospechoso de disparar el sábado contra una congresista estadounidense en Tucson, Arizona, había publicado en Internet raras elucubraciones sobre el alfabetismo, la moneda y el gobierno.

Jared Lee Loughner, un residente de Tucson de 22 años, fue reducido por la fuerza luego que abrió fuego en un acto político, mató a seis personas y dejó gravemente herida a la congresista demócrata Gabrielle Giffords.

=

=

“Adiós”, había escrito horas antes en el sitio web MySpace en donde dijo a sus amigos: “Por favor, no se enojen conmigo”.

Antes había difundido en los sitios MySpace y YouTube una serie de pensamientos en los que censuraba al gobierno y a los electores de Gifford en el octavo distrito electoral de Arizona en donde se cometió el ataque.

Sus comentarios eran poco coherentes y a menudo tomaban la forma de un ejercicio lógico, exponiendo una idea y ofreciendo una conclusión. Frecuentemente hablaba de crear una nueva moneda.

“No están distribuyendo su nueva moneda letalmente a la gente. De ese modo ustedes están distribuyendo su nueva moneda no letalmente”, escribió en YouTube.

En otra entrada en YouTube escribió: “La mayoría de los que viven en el Distrito 8 (de la congresista atacada) son analfabetos. Es cómico. Yo no controlo su estructura gramatical de inglés pero ustedes pueden controlar vuestra estructura gramatical”.

Loughner dijo que su actividad favorita es el “sueño conciente” y afirmó: “Mi ambición es informar a los soñadores concientes sobre una nueva moneda”.

El Ejército de Estados Unidos dijo que Loughner se postuló para entrar a filas pero fue rechazado. Un portavoz del Ejército se negó a dar más detalles. Sus escritos lo mostraban furioso contra el colegio local Pima Community. Denunciaba tanto a docentes como estudiantes y los criticaba por esa supuesta nueva moneda.

El diario Arizona Republic citó a un docente que dijo que Loughner asistió al colegio desde 2005 hasta fines del año pasado cuando fue suspendido y se le dijo que necesitaba un tratamiento mental. Sin embargo no se lo consideraba una amenaza para los demás.

El sheriff Clarence Dupnik dijo el sábado que el sospechoso tenía “un pasado problemático” pero dijo que la policía no estaba segura de que haya actuado solo.

Buscan a otro sospechoso

A primera hora del domingo, la policía divulgó una foto de una cámara de vigilancia del lugar del ataque que muestra a otro sospechoso de entre 40 y 50 años que aparentemente camina dentro de una tienda.

La congresista Giffords había recibido antes varias amenazas al igual que el juez John Roll, uno de los seis muertos.

Se llama Crystal Harris y se casará con Hugh Hefner, el fundador de Playboy

26/12/2010

Hugh Hefner, fundador de Playboy y casado dos veces, se comprometió de nuevo .

Hefner, de 84 años, anunció en la red social Twitter que que comprometió el viernes con su novia Crystal Harris, de 24 años.

“Cuando le dí el anillo a Crystal, ella rompió a llorar. Este es el fin de semana más feliz en Navidad del que tenga memoria”, escribió Hefner.

Hefner, cuya revista fue fundada en 1953, se divorció de su segunda esposa, Kimberley Conrad, previamente este año. Su primer matrimonio fue con Mildred Williams y concluyó en 1959.

Harris fue la conejita del mes de diciembre del 2009.

Hefner, conocido en todo el mundo como Hef y abierto defensor de la libertad sexual y los derechos civiles, publicó historias contra el “macarthismo” y la Guerra de Vietnam. También ha respaldado las causas de los homosexuales y la legalización de la marihuana.

Con una foto de calendario de Marilyn Monroe en la portada, Hefner elaboró la primera edición de su revista en la cocina de su departamento.

La revista llegó a las tiendas por primera vez en diciembre de 1953 y vendió 51.000 copias, lo suficiente como para financiar una segunda edición, dando el puntapié inicial a una multimillonaria corporación internacional.

Asegura que “el viento sopla a favor” de los republicanos en vísperas electorales

La ex gobernadora del estado de Alaska Sarah Palin dijo hoy durante un mitin en Florida que el viento sopla “a favor” de los republicanos durante un fin de semana cargado de eventos electorales en todo el país.

EE.UU. renueva el próximo 2 de noviembre la Cámara de Representantes, un tercio del Senado, una treintena de gobernadores y otros puestos estatales y locales en unas elecciones en las que los demócratas ven peligrar su reinado en el Congreso.

Las encuestas adelantan que los republicanos se harán con el control de la Cámara de Representantes y que arrebatarán escaños a sus rivales en el Senado aunque resulta improbable que logren el control de esa cámara.

Palin, la líder extraoficial del movimiento “Tea Party” que ha movilizado a las bases conservadoras de todo el país, dio hoy el triunfo por seguro.

“La victoria del 2010 sólo es el comienzo”, dijo Palin durante su mitin en Orlando (Florida) en el que añadió, dirigiéndose al presidente del Partido Republicano Michael Steele que él y sus compañeros de partido liderarán el camino para la victoria en las presidenciales de 2012.

Durante su intervención, Palin abogó por los principios que enarbola el “Tea Party”: austeridad fiscal, menores impuestos y escasa intervención gubernamental.

“No hay alternativa”, afirmó la ex aspirante republicana a la vicepresidencia durante el 2008 en un discurso con numerosos tintes patrióticos.

“Este es un país excepcional y no tenemos nada por lo que disculparnos”
, afirmó en medio de las ovaciones de los asistentes.

Aprovechó, también, para criticar la gestión de la oposición demócrata al señalar que el presidente Barack Obama y los líderes demócratas en el Congreso, Nancy Pelosi y Harry Reid, han creado una fórmula que “no funciona”.

La muestra, dijo Palin, son las elevadas tasas de desempleo y una economía que no levanta cabeza.

“Podéis votar por más desempleo, más impuestos y más intervención del Gobierno o votar por aquellos que os van a poner otra vez a trabajar”, afirmó.

Minutos antes de que Palin subiese al estrado, Steele pronunció un discurso igualmente triunfal en el que repitió una y otra vez, “victoria, victoria, victoria”.

Steele pidió a los asistentes que despidan a Pelosi y que jubilen a Reid. EFE

And As a Nation, We Pause Today to Remember Them“, Posted by Jesse Lee on May 31, 2010 at 05:00 PM EDT

http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2010/05/31/and-a-nation-we-pause-today-remember-themVice President Biden Speaks in Arlington

In what he called “the greatest honor of my public life,” this morning the Vice President took part in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns and spoke at the Memorial Amphitheater at Arlington National Cemetery.  His opening remarks and photos below:

Collectively, the generation of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines who have served and sacrificed for us are the heart and soul, and I would say, spine of this nation.  And as a nation, we pause today to remember them.  They gave their lives fulfilling their oath to this nation and to us.  And in so doing, they imparted a responsibility on us to recognize, to respect, to honor and to care for those who risked their lives so that we can live ours.

Moments ago, I had the distinct honor and high privilege of laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  This morning, I welcomed to the White House the Gold Star families, who know all too well the price of their loved ones’ patriotism.  I met Ruth Stonesifer, the current President of the Gold Star Mothers, who lost her son Kristofor on the first night of major operations in Afghanistan on October of 2001; and Emogene Cupp, the mother who played a pivotal role in the early stages of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and unveiled the first panel; to Terry Davis, a remarkable champion of Gold Star families.  Terry, God love her, is a Gold Star sister, a Gold Star wife, and a Gold Star mother — none should be asked to sacrifice that much. 

And I met the parents, the brother, and the beautiful widow of John Hallet.  I had the privilege of meeting this family when I attended the memorial service at Fort Lewis in Washington State.  John served in a Stryker Brigade that was among the hardest hit in Afghanistan.  He left behind a wife, two young sons, and an infant daughter who he never got to meet — but who I hope will grow up with the pride in her father filling part of the void that’s left by his loss. 

Each of the Gold Star families embodies, in the words of John Milton, “Those also serve who only stand and wait.”  Many of you in this amphitheater here today have stood and waited, relieved — as Jill and I were — at the return of a loved one, in our case our son from a year in Iraq.  Many of you are now waiting, with family members still overseas, many in harm’s way.  And some of you have stood and waited for a loved one that did not return and live now with the knowledge that your will one day be reunited with him, with our heavenly Father.

To those who have lost a loved one in the service of our nation, I recall a famous headstone in Ireland.  And the headstone reads as follows, “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal.  Love leaves a memory no one can steal.”  No one can steal the memory from you.  I can tell you from my own personal experience that eventually the pain and heartache you now feel will eventually, God-willing, be replaced by the joyful memory of the son or daughter or husband and wife or father or mother that you loved so dearly and lost.  Jill and my prayer for you is that that day will come sooner rather than later.  But it will come, I promise you.

Como os democratas acabaram com Detroit

24/03/2010
Um documentário interessante mostrando como levaram uma cidade de grande porte a completa ruína.
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21870766/

Detroit named nation’s most dangerous city

Critics dispute analysis of crime statistics, say rankings can be harmful

Como as sucessivas administrações democratas (populistas) desastrosas e gastadoras junto com sindicatos poderosos acabaram com essa outrora cidade industrial.
Desde o meio dos anos 60 Detroit em Michigan tem apenas prefeitos democratas, e, desde os anos 70 para cá, entrou em uma espiral de decadencia, primeiro com a violência urbana explodindo, e, depois com a indústria automobilística, uma a uma, mandando suas fábricas para fora.
Talvez infelizmente esse seja o destino dos estados unidos inteiro…

Para quem falar que a culpa é dos governadores, desde 2002 o estado de michigan tem governos democratas.
Um tour pelo o centro da cidade que poderia estar em um daqueles programas estilo history channel de “o mundo sem ninguém’.

RENUNCIA – HÁ 35 ANOS NIXON RENUNCIAVA 8 DE AGOSTO DE 1974 NIXON RESIGNS DISCURSO DE RENUNCIA waltergate, washington post, bob woodword

08/08/2009

http://watergate.info/nixon/resignation-letter.shtml 

Good evening.

This is the 37th time I have spoken to you from this office, where so many decisions have been made that shaped the history of this Nation. Each time I have done so to discuss with you some matter that I believe affected the national interest.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9l37RTZcJ0 VEJA NO YOUTUBE

In all the decisions I have made in my public life, I have always tried to do what was best for the Nation. Throughout the long and difficult period of Watergate, I have felt it was my duty to persevere, to make every possible effort to complete the term of office to which you elected me.

In the past few days, however, it has become evident to me that I no longer have a strong enough political base in the Congress to justify continuing that effort. As long as there was such a base, I felt strongly that it was necessary to see the constitutional process through to its conclusion, that to do otherwise would be unfaithful to the spirit of that deliberately difficult process and a dangerously destabilizing precedent for the future.

But with the disappearance of that base, I now believe that the constitutional purpose has been served, and there is no longer a need for the process to be prolonged.

I would have preferred to carry through to the finish whatever the personal agony it would have involved, and my family unanimously urged me to do so. But the interests of the Nation must always come before any personal considerations.

From the discussions I have had with Congressional and other leaders, I have concluded that because of the Watergate matter I might not have the support of the Congress that I would consider necessary to back the very difficult decisions and carry out the duties of this office in the way the interests of the Nation would require.

I have never been a quitter. To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interest of America first. America needs a full-time President and a full-time Congress, particularly at this time with problems we face at home and abroad.

To continue to fight through the months ahead for my personal vindication would almost totally absorb the time and attention of both the President and the Congress in a period when our entire focus should be on the great issues of peace abroad and prosperity without inflation at home.

resign

Therefore, I shall resign the Presidency effective at noon tomorrow. Vice President Ford will be sworn in as President at that hour in this office.

As I recall the high hopes for America with which we began this second term, I feel a great sadness that I will not be here in this office working on your behalf to achieve those hopes in the next 2 1/2 years. But in turning over direction of the Government to Vice President Ford, I know, as I told the Nation when I nominated him for that office 10 months ago, that the leadership of America will be in good hands.

In passing this office to the Vice President, I also do so with the profound sense of the weight of responsibility that will fall on his shoulders tomorrow and, therefore, of the understanding, the patience, the cooperation he will need from all Americans.

As he assumes that responsibility, he will deserve the help and the support of all of us. As we look to the future, the first essential is to begin healing the wounds of this Nation, to put the bitterness and divisions of the recent past behind us, and to rediscover those shared ideals that lie at the heart of our strength and unity as a great and as a free people.

By taking this action, I hope that I will have hastened the start of that process of healing which is so desperately needed in America.

I regret deeply any injuries that may have been done in the course of the events that led to this decision. I would say only that if some of my judgments were wrong, and some were wrong, they were made in what I believed at the time to be the best interest of the Nation.

To those who have stood with me during these past difficult months, to my family, my friends, to many others who joined in supporting my cause because they believed it was right, I will be eternally grateful for your support.

And to those who have not felt able to give me your support, let me say I leave with no bitterness toward those who have opposed me, because all of us, in the final analysis, have been concerned with the good of the country, however our judgments might differ.

So, let us all now join together in affirming that common commitment and in helping our new President succeed for the benefit of all Americans.

I shall leave this office with regret at not completing my term, but with gratitude for the privilege of serving as your President for the past 5 1/2 years. These years have been a momentous time in the history of our Nation and the world. They have been a time of achievement in which we can all be proud, achievements that represent the shared efforts of the Administration, the Congress, and the people.

But the challenges ahead are equally great, and they, too, will require the support and the efforts of the Congress and the people working in cooperation with the new Administration.

We have ended America’s longest war, but in the work of securing a lasting peace in the world, the goals ahead are even more far-reaching and more difficult. We must complete a structure of peace so that it will be said of this generation, our generation of Americans, by the people of all nations, not only that we ended one war but that we prevented future wars.

We have unlocked the doors that for a quarter of a century stood between the United States and the People’s Republic of China.

We must now ensure that the one quarter of the world’s people who live in the People’s Republic of China will be and remain not our enemies but our friends.

In the Middle East, 100 million people in the Arab countries, many of whom have considered us their enemy for nearly 20 years, now look on us as their friends. We must continue to build on that friendship so that peace can settle at last over the Middle East and so that the cradle of civilization will not become its grave.

Together with the Soviet Union we have made the crucial breakthroughs that have begun the process of limiting nuclear arms. But we must set as our goal not just limiting but reducing and finally destroying these terrible weapons so that they cannot destroy civilization and so that the threat of nuclear war will no longer hang over the world and the people.

We have opened the new relation with the Soviet Union. We must continue to develop and expand that new relationship so that the two strongest nations of the world will live together in cooperation rather than confrontation.

Around the world, in Asia, in Africa, in Latin America, in the Middle East, there are millions of people who live in terrible poverty, even starvation. We must keep as our goal turning away from production for war and expanding production for peace so that people everywhere on this earth can at last look forward in their children’s time, if not in our own time, to having the necessities for a decent life.

Here in America, we are fortunate that most of our people have not only the blessings of liberty but also the means to live full and good and, by the world’s standards, even abundant lives. We must press on, however, toward a goal of not only more and better jobs but of full opportunity for every American and of what we are striving so hard right now to achieve, prosperity without inflation.

For more than a quarter of a century in public life I have shared in the turbulent history of this era. I have fought for what I believed in. I have tried to the best of my ability to discharge those duties and meet those responsibilities that were entrusted to me.

Sometimes I have succeeded and sometimes I have failed, but always I have taken heart from what Theodore Roosevelt once said about the man in the arena, “whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again because there is not effort without error and shortcoming, but who does actually strive to do the deed, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumphs of high achievements and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”

I pledge to you tonight that as long as I have a breath of life in my body, I shall continue in that spirit. I shall continue to work for the great causes to which I have been dedicated throughout my years as a Congressman, a Senator, a Vice President, and President, the cause of peace not just for America but among all nations, prosperity, justice, and opportunity for all of our people.

There is one cause above all to which I have been devoted and to which I shall always be devoted for as long as I live.

When I first took the oath of office as President 5 1/2 years ago, I made this sacred commitment, to “consecrate my office, my energies, and all the wisdom I can summon to the cause of peace among nations.”

I have done my very best in all the days since to be true to that pledge. As a result of these efforts, I am confident that the world is a safer place today, not only for the people of America but for the people of all nations, and that all of our children have a better chance than before of living in peace rather than dying in war.

This, more than anything, is what I hoped to achieve when I sought the Presidency. This, more than anything, is what I hope will be my legacy to you, to our country, as I leave the Presidency.

To have served in this office is to have felt a very personal sense of kinship with each and every American. In leaving it, I do so with this prayer: May God’s grace be with you in all the days ahead.
