President Donald Trump ran on a campaign platform of temporarily stopping people from terrorist-plagued countries from entering the United States until better screening procedures could be put into place.
Even voters who couldn’t stand Trump in the November election supported this common-sense idea out of pure self-preservation. I mean, who wants to get blown up at a marathon race or blown away while dancing in a nightclub or gunned down at a Christmas party, right?
So this week, Trump did what he said he was going to do and issued an executive order restricting the entry of people from seven terrorist-plagued countries into the U.S.
The left – particularly the ACLU and CNN – went into hyperventilating apoplexy. And on Saturday a liberal New York judge appointed by Barack Obama issued a court order over-ruling Trump’s executive order.
Trump-haters cheered. “We won!” they exulted. But here’s the thing…
They now own this issue. And the next time some radical Islamic terrorist commits some violent atrocity on American soil, voters are going to remember that President Trump tried to do something to prevent it and the left stopped him. Which will move Trump a few more steps towards a 50-state re-election sweep in 2020.
Heckuva job, libs!

P.S. Barack Obama was a weak president. The world knew it and took advantage. In particular, Russian President Vladimir Putin knew it and took advantage. But Obama’s gone. And there’s a new sheriff in town.
Yet Sen. Lindsey Graham and others are whimpering because President Donald Trump wants to see if he can work with Putin and avoid a dangerous escalation of U.S.-Russian tensions.
Just because Putin got away with murder (literally) while Obama was in our White House doesn’t mean he’ll get the same free ride with Trump in command.
So critics like this Trump-hating putz senator from South Carolina (who Trump beat like a drum in last year’s GOP primary) ought to just shut up and give the man a chance to see if a new relationship – based on American strength rather than American weakness – can be established between our two super-powers rather than make Obama’s bad situation even worse.

Cegavske Critics Barking Up Wrong Tree
I want to take this opportunity to clear up some unwarranted criticism out there about Republican Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske over media inquiries to her office this past week on President Trump’s assertion that there might have been millions of votes cast illegally in November’s election.
In a press release, the SoS replied…
“There is no evidence of voters illegally casting ballots at the most recent election in Nevada.”
The key words: “no” and “evidence.” You might also take note of the words “most recent.”
And for those who erroneously are saying Cegavske made this statement only to throw Trump under the bus, well, you’re wrong. In fact…
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“The coverage about me in the @nytimes and the @washingtonpost has been so false and angry that the Times actually apologized to its dwindling subscribers and readers. They got me wrong right from the beginning and still have not changed course, and never will. DISHONEST.” – President Donald Trump, 1/28/17
