The Tide Turns :: By Bill Wilson

Remember the vitriol over President Donald Trump “banning” Muslims from entry into the U.S.? The Supreme Court has ruled that the president is well within the law to scrutinize

and ban entry of persons with no legitimate connection (by family, academic, or job related) because “the balance tips in favor of the government’s compelling need to provide for the Nation’s security.”

The Court appeared to be street smart as well spelling out that “a nonprofit group devoted to immigration issues may not contact foreign nationals from the designated countries, add them to client lists, and then secure their entry by claiming injury from the exclusion.” The Court will reconsider the ban in October.

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the opinion for the unanimous decision. He said:

Today’s compromise will burden executive officials with the task of deciding-on peril of contempt, whether individuals from the six affected nations who wish to enter the United States have a sufficient connection to a person or entity in this country… The compromise also will invite a flood of litigation until this case is finally resolved on the merits, as parties and courts struggle to determine what exactly constitutes a “bona fide relationship,” who precisely has a “credible claim”

 to that relationship, and whether the claimed relationship was formed “simply to avoid §2(c)” of Executive Order No. 13780, ante, at 11, 12.

Thomas also cautioned that the lawsuits emanating from the SCOTUS decision will go back to the courts whose decisions were overturned:

 And litigation of the factual and legal issues that are likely to arise will presumably be directed to the two district courts whose initial orders in these cases this Court has now- unanimously-found sufficiently questionable to be stayed as to the vast majority of the people potentially affected.

In other words, the leftists judges on the fourth and Ninth circuit courts will further muddy the legal waters by entertaining the litigation that attempts to define a “bona fide relationship” that would allow entry to the country from Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Syria, and Yemen.

The rising tide of immigration and refugees coming from terrorist sponsoring nations has been cut in half since President Trump took office. The interest of national security overrides the lunacy of the left whose insistence that people who are not citizens of the U.S. have the right to come here even if they threaten our personal safety, and the reasonable vetting of immigrants and refugees is a violation of their rights.

As the Lord said in Leviticus 24:22, “You shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country.”

If the stranger comes illegally or intends to not abide by our laws, that stranger should not be allowed to come to or remain in our nation. The  Supreme Court has for a brief time turned the tide from those who wish to overthrow the U.S. using violence and crisis.

Have a blessed and powerful day!

Words Mean Things, Especially Mean Words :: By Bill Wilson

The Bible says in Proverbs 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.”

James compared the tongue among the members that defile the whole body and in James 3:2 said, “But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.”

[Jesus said,] “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.” (Matthew 12:36-37)

It is from this perspective that we as Christians should view the current visceral national rhetoric. Words mean things and mean words have legs, that as James said, set the course of nature on fire-a fire of hell.

There are many examples of this vulgarity that have overtaken our nation. Maddona, after the inauguration said, “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”

Ashley Judd suggested that Trump and his daughter Ivanka had incestual relations in a vulgar tirade.

Michael Moore said that Trump was mentally ill and that he agreed with “progressive” congressman John L. Lewis (D-GA) that Trump was not a legitimate president.

Communist Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said, “I hope they (Republicans) leave their bodies to science. I would like to cut them open.”

These words have set the stage for violent acts against conservatives, Christians and supporters of the president. And it hasn’t stopped with the loss of four special elections.

Johnny Depp this past week said, “I think Trump needs help. There are a lot of dark places he could go. I’m not insinuating anything; by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible but when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

Angry over Trump hoaxing the media about whether there were tapes of conversations between he and fired FBI Directory James Comey, Elise Jordan on MSNBC said, “My advice would just be to Republicans who do cozy up to him, it’s like hugging a suicide bomber.” The inference of death-beheading Trump (Kathy Griffin), the assassination play in New York, and these words-stir emotions of hate.

And it’s that kind of hate that cause people like James Hodgkinson to go off the deep end and try to assassinate conservative congressmen. The Daily Caller has documented 35 known attacks by liberals on conservatives since July 2016. Townhall documented 20 liberals who called for violence AFTER Hodgkinson opened fire on Republican Congressmen.

The names included: Bill Maher, Montel Williams, members of the media, including Washington Post, New York Daily News, Daily Kos, Village Voice, and several elected officials. The Washington Free Beacon assembled a list of 30 Conservative congressmen who have been attacked or have had death threats since May 8.

These are just a handful of examples you can use in your discussions of how the mean words are instigating violence. Words mean things.

Have a blessed and powerful day!
