In few words, cause it doesn't take very many, Don Surber eviscerates the media on their immigration hysteria

As they say, go read it all, it's a tour de force.

The (New York Times) editorial said: "The order’s language makes clear that the xenophobia and Islamophobia that permeated Mr. Trump’s campaign are to stain his presidency as well. Un-American as they are, they are now American policy."

Was President Obama un-American. xenophobic and Islamophobic when he issued the same order on Iraq only in 2011?

Did the media even notice that Obama ended a 50-plus year policy of accepting Cuban refugees?

Where are the editorials in the New York Times decrying Obama's xenophobia?

USA Today did the usual journalist-as-social-justice-warrior schtick of elevating liberal advocates as experts:

Experts question legality of Trump's immigration ban on Muslim countries
This is a legal and unfortunately necessary action. These are not experts. They are liars with law degrees.

We know this is legal because President Trump is doing what his predecessor did.

Years ago, Congress gave the president the power to do this.

On November 8, voters elected the candidate who saw the threat to our security as coming from Iran -- not Cuba.


  1. From the linked USA Today article: Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.

    Sounds like a law that's outlived its usefulness, if it ever had any. Time to repeal it.

  2. Don Surber's blog is one of my daily must-reads, he has a clear eye and knows the press inside and out:

    He also has a book out, "Trump the Press" available on Amazon or through his website, with a sequel coming out in about 10 days (which I've already ordered.) His first book was just great, he skewers the media in a most entertaining way, and it's a lot of fun to read! He's also meticulous with the facts (which is what makes it all so entertaining) so his points are all well-made. He's one of the few who called this election for Trump way back when Trump first announced his candidacy!

    If you haven't read "Trump the Press," you're missing out!
