Trump Travel Ban

The White House has issued a memo today and the State Department has issued further guidance on the Executive Order impacting travel for those foreign citizens and nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. Specifically, for those naturalized U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents (green card holders):


  • If you are a Naturalized U.S. Citizen presenting a valid U.S. passport at a U.S. port-of-entry, you are not subject to the travel ban.
  • If you are a U.S. Legal Permanent Resident (green card holder) and you were born in or have dual citizenship in Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria or Yemen, and you present a valid green card and passport at a U.S. port-of-entry, you are not subject to the travel ban.
  • This Executive Order does not restrict the travel of dual nationals from any country with a valid U.S. visa in a passport of an unrestricted country.  Our Embassies and Consulates around the world will continue to process visa applications and issue non-immigrant and immigrant visas to otherwise eligible visa applicants who apply for a passport from an unrestricted country, even if they hold dual nationality from one of the seven restricted countries. Please check with your local Embassy or Consulate for country specific information.
Much of the confusion is due to incorrect reporting by global media.

Could North Korea hit the US Mainland?

With the rhetoric from Pyongyang, may feel the United States is on the verge of war with North Korean. One problem, we are already at war with North Korea. The Korean War was from 1950 - 1953, but it never officially ended. Yes, we have an armistice, which ended hostility, but we never sign a treaty ending the war. Instead, we have lived under a 64-year cease-fire that could flare up at any moment.
The problem, South Korea, and Japan are both within a strike of North Korea's conventional and nuclear arsenal. However, a return to hostilities could become unavoidable if any of the following occurs: ·The North paints itself into a corner, and Kim Jong-un launches a preemptive strike. ·The US or S. Korea realize the inevitable and attempt to take out Kim Jong-un, or the North Korean nuclear arsenal.   ·A third-party instigates a war to distract or weaken the United States.
The US or S. Korea realize the inevitable and attempt to take out Kim Jong-un, or the North Korean nuclear arsenal.

Sale of access a bigger issue than Collusion

The use of a private email account, improper handling of classified documents and lying to investigators, (Martha Stuart spent a year in jail for the last one), if of importance; however, this issue has been the perfect smokescreen for a bigger issue. The sale of influence to any willing buyer. This is not the typical campaign contribution for future access that is common to all political campaigns, but the outright sale current and future access to thought the State department and eventually to those footing the bill, the presidency.
This is not a first for the Clinton's. During Bill Clinton 1996 reelection campaign, donations were funneled by the Chinese government through US based intermediates to the Democratic Party. As well as U.S. companies wishing to do business in China.   Vice president Biden, then Senator made the following comment in 1998
Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware, the ranking minority member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the Administration…
