From the last thread since I killed it:

re: #418 Anymouse

re: #423 Anymouse

My wife is hopeful that since Mr. Smith’s office called us back at home, she can call again and press on the issue of the National Security Council and its rearrangement (along with Mr. Steve Bannon placed on it.)

She intends to point out the makeup of the council is set in law, and thus a rearrangement of who is on it is illegal (citing the specific law in the US code).

(Mr. Smith’s offices automatically shunt me to dead air, which makes me think I am on disconnect before hearing.)

She also intends to convey the idea that the legislature is giving up its constitutional powers. She is concerned for him that he will be made irrelevant if he does not stand up for the US House’s independence.

After Texas Mosque Burned Down Local Jews Offer Their Synagogue, Because Decent People Do That.

Here’s one to put in your “Look for the Helpers” file and maybe remember to come back to when there’s entirely too much Trump in your day. And like too many Nice Times, it starts with something terrible: In the early hours of Saturday morning, not long after Trump’s immigration ban (it’s not a Muslim ban, really, even though he campaigned on that! Total coincidence!) went into effect, some jerk set fire to the Islamic Center in Victoria, Texas, and although fire crews arrived quickly, the building was a total loss. Now, of course this wasn’t Trump’s fault, and there’s no reason to think a Trump supporter might do such a despicable thing. It was probably a false flag like all other bad things that happen (and indeed, the cause is still under investigation — we can’t rule out an electrical fire or some ordinary cause, because the universe does like to fuck with us that way).

The mosque, built in 2000, was a total loss, but then a Christmas Miracle happened: Robert Loeb, the president of the local Reform Jewish congregation, Bnai Israel, and other members of the congregation, showed up to hand Hashmi the keys to their synagogue for his congregation to use until the mosque is rebuilt. “Jewish community members walked into my home and gave me a key to the synagogue,” Hashmi said.

Well, while it’s tempting to think that they were fired for “disloyalty to the Fuhrer president or something, it could also be for something like conduct unbecoming (as the Secret Service agents in Colombia were).

In today’s anti-abortion merry-go-round of WTF:

jezebel.com

(Note there is a correction at the bottom of the article)

Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson signed a a bill that bans the safest of abortion method, dilation and evacuation.

It also allows the family of someone who obtains an abortion to sue the doctor who performed the procedure if that provider is in violation of the new law.

The bill’s co-sponsors are two men, Rep. Andy Mayberry and Rep. Dave Sanders, who, to my knowledge, have never personally received or considered receiving an abortion. Sanders, however, has seen abortion footage and found it disturbing. “You see a baby, an unborn life, a fetus, engaging in fight or flight reaction to the forceps going into the womb, trying to remove an arm, remove a leg,” he said.

Mr. Sanders is a shameless Christian liar for Jesus.

Asked about rape or incest exceptions, Mr. Mayberry noted the bill doesn’t ban an abortion by any other procedure. (Nice dissembling there, senator.)

You would be unsurprised to learn senators Mayberry and Sanders have never needed an abortion because they always keep an aspirin between their legs and dress modestly.

A report at Politico stating that Federal workers in agencies targeted for gutting have turned to encryption methods such as Signal to avoid having their messages detected by the administration.

That’s sure to improve morale, to need to hide private conversation from the boss in case he might use it against you.

Federal employees worried that President Donald Trump will gut their agencies are creating new email addresses, signing up for encrypted messaging apps and looking for other, protected ways to push back against the new administration’s agenda.

Whether inside the Environmental Protection Agency, within the Foreign Service, on the edges of the Labor Department or beyond, employees are using new technology as well as more old-fashioned approaches — such as private face-to-face meetings — to organize letters, talk strategy, or contact media outlets and other groups to express their dissent.

Freepers are in disarray over Haley’s UN remarks. The Putinistas are convinced she’s “gone rogue” or that McCain and the other “neocons” traded Trump their votes for a harder line on Russia. The anti-Putin crowd, meanwhile, think this means that Trump is stepping up to show how strong America is and is going to finally get the upper hand against Putin.

Well, this apparently just happened in Paris:

A major security operation is under way near the Louvre museum in Paris after a man attempted to attack a soldier who was patrolling in the area.

A man carrying a rucksack attempted a knife attack on the soldier, according to the public broadcaster France Info. The soldier opened fire.

The attempted attack took place in the Carousel du Louvre, a commercial underground shopping centre near the entrance to the Louvre, which is one of the world’s most-visited museums.

The soldier was patrolling as part of the Operation Sentenelle foot-patrols around French landmarks that have been in place since the attack on the magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Paris kosher supermarket in January 2015.

A spokewoman for the Louvre said the museum was “closed for the moment” but would not confirm reports it had been evacuated.

Well, Tass sure likes the idea of the Treasury Department lifting sanctions on Russia buying computer security equipment.

I’m guessing that even party over country is not the Republican way. It’s authoritarianism over party over county.

Not only that, it was the very first foreign license issued by Treasury.

From the Russian News Agency, more at the link:

MOSCOW, February 2. /TASS/. By easing sanctions against Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), Washington paves the way to setting up an anti-terrorism coalition, member of the State Duma, former director of the Federal Security Service (FSB) Nikolai Kovalyov told TASS.

“This shows that actual joint work on establishing an anti-terrorism coalition is about to begin,” Kovalyov said. “This is the first step on the way leading to cooperation in the war on terror.”

“Without easing these sanctions it would have been impossible to take the next step,” the lawmaker said. “These practical actions indicate that US President Donald Trump has been consistent,” he stressed.

According to the General License No. 1 posted by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the US Treasury Department on Thursday, the US authorities have eased sanctions against Russia’s FSB.

Someone’s worried about reelection in Northern Virginia:

A prominent Republican lawmaker sent letters to colleagues this week saying five bills, most of them related to abortion, would not be taken up in committee, sparking outrage among abortion-rights advocates who said important legislation dealing with women’s health had been buried without a hearing.

Del. David B. Albo, R-Fairfax, also unilaterally quashed two anti-abortion bills from conservative lawmakers, including a measure to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

In letters dated Wednesday, Albo said the House of Delegates courts committee he chairs would have to meet late tonight or over the weekend to take up political bills that he thinks have no chance of becoming law. Lawmakers are coming up on Tuesday’s deadline to finish work on their bills and, if passed, send them to the other chamber.

huffingtonpost.com (with video)

Mikhail Baryshnikov, the famed Russian ballet dancer and actor who defected from the former Soviet Union in 1974, warned in a video released Wednesday that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump could bring Soviet-style authoritarianism to the United States.

“Take it from one who knows: Hundreds of thousands of people like me have fled countries led by dangerous, totalitarian opportunists ― like Donald Trump,” Baryshnikov says in the video, produced by an organization called Art Not War.

The video is part of a campaign called Humanity for Hillary, in which artists have collaborated to endorse Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and advocate against Trump.

Baryshnikov’s involvement in the campaign draws attention to Trump’s divisive and inciteful rhetoric, as well as his ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has discriminated against LGBT individuals and censored reporters and artists critical of him. Some have been murdered.

“I left a country that built walls to come to a place without them,” Baryshnikov says in the video. “But today, as a citizen of the United States, for the first time, I am hearing rhetoric that reminds me of the Soviet Union of my youth, where it was a crime, and continues to be a crime, to be different.”

A random fact for “fiscal conservatives”:

According to farm.ewg.org, total US subsidy for peanuts between 1995 and 2014 was $3,920,251,738. Over 20 years that’s $196,012,586.90 per year. Now we have a reference point in discussions about government spending. Anything less than $200M is literally peanuts.

Hmm.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) asks President Trump to pardon a convicted murderer. He previously petitioned President Obama for the same.

The case is fraught with problems, but one of the claims is that forensic evidence not presented at his courts-martial including fingerprints and DNA

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a Marine combat veteran, sent a letter to Trump asking him to personally review the case and pardon 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, who was sentenced to 19 years at Fort Leavenworth for unpremeditated murder after his platoon shot to death two Afghans while on patrol in 2012. Lorance is appealing the court-martial conviction, which also included attempted murder and making a false official statement.

“This is one of those cases that stands out as a stupid decision where someone who should not be in jail is going to jail,” Hunter said. “And not just that, a platoon commander who was on the ground and in his mind made a life-and-death decision in real time. Again, this is combat.”

Trump was asked about Lorance’s case during a Jan. 26 interview with conservative TV commentator Sean Hannity and said only that, “We’re looking at a few of them.” If the president agrees to Hunter’s request, he will be opening a murky and emotionally charged criminal case.

Fellow soldiers with the 4th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment gave damning testimony against Lorance during his trial - and were not prosecuted. A staff sergeant told the New York Times that the killings were “straight murder” directed by Lorance as platoon leader.

And:

Lorance claimed he ordered the attack on three motorcyclists - killing two - because he was trying to protect his platoon in a dangerous area frequented by the Taliban.

But during the Fort Bragg trial in 2013, prosecutors painted a picture of a soldier without combat experience who pushed his soldiers to threaten, endanger and kill local Afghans and who then attempted a cover-up. He was convicted of unpremeditated murder, attempted murder, reckless endangerment, communicating a threat, eliciting a false official statement and obstructing justice.

The case has numerous convolutions: If the military courts system is your bag, the article is quite interesting.

As for myself, I read of the case in Navy Times but do not know enough of the issues and evidence (or lack thereof) to come to a reasoned opinion on whether this guy should be in Leavenworth or not.

82nd Airborne vet who was deported as an undocumented immigrant to Mexico (and set up a help support group service there for other deported veterans) has hope he will be granted citizenship.

He was brought to the USA at age 8. He joined the Army with the understanding he would become a citizen. After his honourable he did not follow up the paperwork, and when convicted of a Felony (aggravated discharge of a firearm) was deported to Mexico and banned from ever returning.

That crime has since been reclassified as a misdemeanour.

A report released this month by the American Civil Liberties Union brought the issue back into the headlines, saying that the federal government failed to ensure that immigrant servicemembers became citizens and later deported “an untold number” without considering their service.

Barajas-Varela is featured on the cover of the report, called “Discharged, Then Discarded,” and is credited by the ACLU with giving deported veterans “a collective voice whose cries are finally being heard.”

He has been encouraged by recent events.

With help from the ACLU and legal experts, deported Marine veteran Daniel Torres became a U.S. citizen in April.

Mr. Barajas-Varela is a combat veteran of the Iraq War.

He has helped twelve deported veterans and one civilian DOD worker obtain reëntry into the USA.

re: #55 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

It would be irresponsible not to speculate…

What would be a problem is spokesliar Kellyanne Conway so brazenly lied about something so easily debunked, and did it on television. Moreover, that sounded planned: Who the heck would make up a story like that off the cuff?

It almost sounds like either A) trying to deflect attention from the failed Yemeni raid, B) trying to create justification for deporting refugees (or worse) particularly after the Muslim Ban and disastrous phone call with Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull, and C) Press liar Sean Spicer with another totally fabricated story about an Iranian missile attack on a US Navy ship (also debunked immediately).

It would appear they are seeking justification for their immigrant/refugee ban and a war with Iran simultaneously.

Well, we have Reuters noting that the administration should be treated as any other authoritarian regime.

We need reporters like this woman who worked for The Telegraph and The Economist again.
Clare Holllingworth, Foreign Correspondent, Died Age 105

This woman was the bloody Indiana Jones of Journalism. She is the person who broke the news of the invasion of Poland by stumbling across German armour formations massed and camouflaged on the Polish border (after stealing a car from the UK Embassy in Poland to go to Germany).

She lead a raid in Algeria to free other foreign correspondents from kidnappers in Algeria. She climbed a bloody lamppost when she was eighty years old to get a better view of the crackdown in Tienanmen Square in Beijing. She once avoided arrest by the police in communist Bucharest by answering her hotel door wrapped only in a towel, reasoning the police might strip a woman but not forcibly dress one.

She could ski, ride horses, fly a plane and parachute jump, and shoot. She kept a pistol under her pillow at all times.

She scooped the story that Ken Philby was a Soviet spy, and her editor sat on it. When it came out in the press, she took his job.

This is journalism (who said writing can’t also be filled with darring-do).

Her story is fascinating and well worth a read (one page in the print edition, not sure on the Web).

Meanwhile, looks like the GOP-controlled Senate is up to some hijinks:

The Senate voted strictly along party lines Friday morning to repeal a regulation requiring disclosures for the payments that energy companies make to foreign governments.

The measure passed 52-47 in a pre-dawn vote.

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) foreign payments rule was mandated by a key provision of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform bill and was meant to reduce corruption in resource-rich countries by detailing the royalties and other payments that oil, natural gas, coal and mineral companies make to governments.

Greets and saluts from the resistance. Today’s IOKIYAR:

Yes folks, that’s right. Trump goes and criticizes Israel for building new settlements. Calls it not helpful.

The silence from the GOP is deafening considering that it is the SAME EXACT POSITION TAKEN by President Obama, but back then, the GOP called Obama the enemy of Israel who was doing everything to undermine Israel’s security.

Top that off with the fact that Israelis, Jordanians and others in the region are worried that Trump’s insistence on moving the US Embassy to Jersualem would cause a war (or at least another Intifada). The GOP doesn’t care about that either, and when Israelis are worried about their security because of a US leader’s actions, that would suggest that the US is not operating to further Israel’s security (or the US’s own for that matter). More instability in an already unstable region is bad for everyone.

Well, not for everyone. Russia wins.

In other news, we’ve got Bannon/Trump/GOP looking to undo Dodd/Frank, and Conway lied her ass off as she claimed that there was a Bowling Green Massacre, but wasn’t clear on where this happened: Kentucky, Ohio, or NYC, and I’m convinced it was all three - that’s why everyone knows where they were when it happened. Trump fans will be polled on this next week and will be convinced that it happened. It’s just more sauce for the goose so that Bannon/Trump can move towards a full ban against Muslim immigration to the US, and even begin agitating towards deporting Muslims who are here lawfully - legal residents on visas, US citizens, etc. It’s priming the pump.

Not a lot of people know Noor Inayat Khan, an Indian Muslim SOE agent who was executed in Dachau:

Noor-un-Nisa Inayat Khan (نور عنایت خان) GC (2 January 1914 - 13 September 1944) was an Allied Special Operations Executive (SOE) agent during the Second World War who was posthumously awarded the George Cross, the highest civilian decoration in the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth nations. Also known as “Nora Baker”,[1] “Madeleine”,[2] and “Jeanne-Marie Rennier”, she was of Indian and American origin. As an SOE agent, she became the first female radio operator to be sent from Britain into occupied France to aid the French Resistance.

Yeah he’s just a kid and as I said our other brother was briefly a Ron Paul fanboy and now he’s Mr. Indigenous People and Environment, I mean that as a compliment, he has a huge heart for those issues. I just think he’s getting a mis-characterization of what the left actually stands for and I think he’s naive to why feminists do what they do. As I said though, just a kid and we do live in an overwhelmingly affluent white area. And you know kids, he might be “rebelling” in a way since me, our parents, and grandmother are boring liberals. I might I understand where he’s coming from on free speech but I think he really does misunderstand, we don’t want people like Milo in jail but we think it’s our free speech to make Milo the pariah he should be rather than the cause celebrity he wants to be.

Breakfast in bed is overrated.

The only time I ever had breakfast or any other meal in bed was when I had pneumonia many years ago and I was too weak to get out of bed. My son (who was 6 years old at the time) was afraid I would starve to death so he brought me grapefruits and cereal.

I was too sick to eat but I managed a few mouthfuls because he was so concerned about me.

Bergen County NJ still has the blue laws. All but bookstores, restaurants, and supermarkets are closed. A few stores get dispensations to be open - like Costco, because they sell food, but they can’t sell stuff like clothes or electronics.

Efforts to repeal the law have repeatedly failed - mostly because people cite the additional traffic it would cause on Sunday (it’s a break from the nonstop traffic, even though traffic would be reduced on Saturday as people no longer need to do all their errands either in county or have to travel elsewhere).

And that also affects alcohol sales (no sales before noon on Sunday).

Republicans lower the bar for the mentally ill to obtain weapons.

I would be an awful person to interview Trump, mostly because I’d get no more than 2 minutes in before he’d run off claiming that he’d been railroaded into an interview. And I wouldn’t care that I don’t get a second chance to interview, because I’d have exposed this bigot for the Islamophobe who’s running roughshod over the Constitution to deprive people of their constitutional protections.

Q1) you keep talk about being smart and need to act about Islamic terrorism. What specific things do you think are smart?

A) sputtering. I have great plans. Best plans. I laid them out.

Q2) Does this include the Muslim ban you enacted days ago?

A) Yes… no wait, that wasn’t a ban. It was just preventing Muslims from entering for a limited time.

Q3) So, a ban that is temporary but can be extended indefinitely, and which has already caught up Muslims living in countries other than those you originally banned.

A) So? It’s working perfectly.

Q4) Does this mean a ban on Muslims entering the US - yes or no?

A) Yes… no wait.. Yes.

Q5) What about Muslims who are here legally on visas, legal immigrants, and naturalized citizens; are you ultimately seeking to deport them/deprive them of their US citizenship.

A) This interview’s over!

I just heard Tom Brokaw, the man who invented World War II, drone on sonorously about how the Democratic minority in the Congress is making a mistake by slowing down the confirmation process because that’s “the Republican playbook” and that they’d be better advised to go out and seek the wisdom of “middle America” (Say “white people,” Tom. Go for the gold.) as regards the issues of the day. This is good advice, provided there’s one angry shut-in anywhere in western Pennsylvania or rural Michigan who hasn’t yet been interviewed by a major newspaper or television correspondent.

The media fools cater to the number of fools that watch and we are all the worse off because of it.

I swear, most of today’s mainstream TV (Traditional and Cable) would have been on the spot to cover the first day the Nazis started rounding up Jews and putting them in camps.

Fox, CNN, (MS)NBC, CBS and ABC would have a reporter there asking “Why are they taking you to a camp, what did you say or do to upset the government? Why don’t you support the Nazi movement…do you have issues with them?”

And then at Dachau they would have another reporter showing the conditions of the camp and reporting: “This is one of the dormitories, I must say the conditions are not all that bad. You have a bed, a cafeteria, a yard for exercise and wonderful shower rooms. I don’t see why all these people are fearful. The Nazi tell me this is only temporary.”

My wife asked me the other night why I don’t listen to music. I told her it’s because I can ‘play back’ any song I know in my head (as long as I know the song).

I not only play them back…I add extended jams and alternate arrangements. Been doing that since I was a kid. Even though I never played any drums or guitars until my sophomore year in college, I always knew I could.

Apparently, Eminem and Big Sean have a new song out that is making waves. It’s called No Favors.

Some of the lyrics:

I’ve been talking to God like that’s my therapist
I’m African-American in America
I ain’t inherit shit but a millionaire under 30
So He must be hearing shit
Don, don, don, life, I do this for the crib
The D to Flint who get sick with lead
Others get the hit with the laugh
From where they need a handout
But they tell you put hands up
Only deals I have is from the Sam’s Club

———

And fuck Ann Coulter with a Klan poster
With a lamp post, door handle shutter
A damn bolt cutter, a sandal, a can opener, a candle rubber
Piano, a flannel, sucker, some hand soap, butter
A banjo and manhole cover
Hand over the mouth and nose smother
Trample ran over the tramp with the Land Rover
The band, the Lambo, Hummer and Road Runner
Go ham donut or go Rambo, gotta make an example of her
That’s for Sandra Bland ho and Philando
Hannibal on the lamb, no wonder I am so stubborn
I’m anti, can’t no government handle a commando
Your man don’t want it, Trump’s a bitch
I’ll make his whole brand go under (yeah)

I listen to music in the car, but it has been ages since I picked out a piece of music and put it on for the purposes of listening to it.

And even longer since I went out and actually bought a recording or paid to download one.

Well, I do so when my girlfriend hands me her device and asks me to find something interesting on Spotify while we play Scrabble, but I would never do it otherwise.

Only exception is if it is a song I am trying to learn, and then only long enough to get the tune in my head.

Turner was probably the best show I got to see last year. The close second was Garbage at the Kings in Brooklyn, but Turner was so funny and engaging.

And I loved his band. They remind me of those old school Brit Pub-rock bands like Brinsley Schwartz and Ian Dury’s Blockheads - not a star in the bunch, but all solid players that make really special music together.

Urban renewal has a very long history - lots of history gets lost along the way. In NYC, Robert Moses used blight as excuse to demolish tenements that were integrated, and built apartment complexes that quickly became segregated. Or highways that ran through hearts of communities that didn’t have wherewithal to resist/block.

The current trend is largely to try and bring back these communities instead of demolishing the past.

And it’s crap that conservative actors don’t find work because of their views. R Lee Ermey was bitching about and I have to say as much as I liked him in Full Metal Jacket, he’s a pretty limited actor. He’s too old to play a drill sergeant any more and that’s his big niche. Same thing when Milo says he’s a victim of “oppression.” People in this country were literally murdered and beat up for supporting Civil Rights. Oh Milo?

In my opinio, absolutely. There’s no such thing as bad publicity so they say. Honestly, I’m just tired of him lecturing the left on “free speech” when he literally supports the guy who wants harsher libel laws and is punishing federal employees for having differing opinions on climate change and whose rallies were far from friendly to alternative opinions. Stir up shit, all you want but don’t you dare tell me that you’re getting the reaction you do because people disagree with you, you’re stirring up shit to increase your brand.Oh and Milo, there’s nothing rebellious about being an ass kisser of Donald Trump. Nothing.

My opinion of Milo bolded within your comment.

Milo supports one guy and one guy only—Milo.

And there are plenty of conservative actors who get work, e.g., Jim Caviezel and Patricia Heaton. For five years, Caviezel was on Person of Interest, a show created by J.J. Abrams who is a huge liberal.

YEah they love ot insist that their liberal colleagues are so “intolerant” of them. Really stop fucking whining already. Funny how it’s okay for conservative millionaires to complain about being ostracized but it’s not okay for poor people to want better wages.

Bannon/Trump enacted policy and don’t care what happens. Their policy affects people holding visas already in the US. These include people who are here legally. By revoking those visas, they’re now in violation of US law - through no action of their own.

The Bannon/Trump admin is playing games with this group of people, including purposefully misstating what these people are (like claiming refugees are illegal aliens/immigrants). Will Bannon/Trump force deportation of these people? No one knows - not even Spicer. That’s dangerous in and of itself since the Administration knew that their actions would affect visa holders already in the US - and didn’t plan for what and how that would play out.

This is a group that doesn’t pay any attention to the consequences of their actions. They just keep doing things that are “bold” and “aggressive” because they can.

The thing about these visas being revoked is that when Trump’s ban “ends” like it’s supposed to after 90 days, they won’t be able to come into the country.

Not just actors; Mel Gibson’s most recent film, Hacksaw Ridge, has received quite positive reviews and has been nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Film and a Best Director nod for Gibson. Clint Eastwood is a director I personally consider one of the all-time best American directors. He knows how to tell a story and get very good performances from his actors - I recently had a chance to see Changeling and I enjoyed it greatly.

Gibson and Eastwood are artists - their respective politics may not be mine, but I would never deny their talents.

re: #349 lawhawk

Urban renewal has a very long history - lots of history gets lost along the way. In NYC, Robert Moses used blight as excuse to demolish tenements that were integrated, and built apartment complexes that quickly became segregated. Or highways that ran through hearts of communities that didn’t have wherewithal to resist/block.

The current trend is largely to try and bring back these communities instead of demolishing the past.

The reason that Long Island’s Northern State Parkway is so winding is because the old money on the North Shore had the political weight to throw around in order to stop Moses from routing it through their communities.

The Southern State Parkway, OTOH, is pretty much a straight shot from Heckscher Park all the way to the Verazano Bridge, because the South Shore was where the rabble lived.

Yeah I heard about Gibson’s new film. I’d like to see it. I really like Eastwodo as a director. In fact, I think he’s ebtter at that then acting. And I have to say as much as I disagree with what MAtthew McConnaughey said, I am not going ot boycott his films.

Same with the BQE and the Cross Bronx. In the latter, it’s a straight shot through poor black neighborhoods. The Gowanus route was picked to maximize pain on local community, instead of shifting it over to 2d Ave (closer to waterfront). Heck, the Triboro bridge was sited so as to help out a rich pal.

Get smart. He says that alot. What Bannon/Lamarr means is a Muslim ban, and ultimately to throw out Muslim immigrants - who entered country legally.

He keeps dancing around the subject (which is funny since he’s a supposed straight talker), because it would be unconstitutional on its face, but his followers know exactly what he means. Everyone knows, even the media, but they dare not speak it publicly, because the media thinks that access is more important than writing the facts.
