Travelers detained at Sea-Tac under Trump executive order - MyNorthwest.comTuesday, January 31, 2017
Washington Governor Jay Inslee. “What type of cruel attitude based on demagoguery and fear does that to people? To anybody?”
Inslee called Trump’s executive order unconstitutional, illegal, and “religious discrimination in its barest and obvious form.”
“The manifest and unjustifiable chaos and cruelty caused by President Trump’s executive order is now on full display here at Sea-Tac Airport,” Inslee said Saturday.

On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order banning entry into the United States by residents of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. It includes refugees. It also orders that Christians and other religious minorities will be given priority over Muslims when vetting refugees.
Under the order, refugees are prevented from entering the country for 120 days while federal officials come up with vetting procedures to ensure they pose no threat. Syrian refugees are blocked indefinitely. Trump calls the measure part of extreme vetting to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the country.
In a press release, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson called the President’s executive order on immigration “un-American and unconstitutional.” He said he and 15 other Attorney Generals (from California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and the District of Columbia) will work together to ensure the federal government obeys the Constitution.
“My team and I are working this weekend to explore our options to oppose this illegal action,” Ferguson said. “The rule of law applies to everyone — including President Trump — and I will use the authority of my office to hold him accountable to it.”
“Religious liberty has been, and always will be, a bedrock principle of our country, and no president can change that truth,” Ferguson added. “Yesterday, multiple federal courts ordered a stay of the Administration’s dangerous Executive Order. We applaud those decisions and will use all of the tools of our offices to fight this unconstitutional order and preserve our nation’s national security and core values. We are confident that the Executive Order will ultimately be struck down by the courts. In the meantime, we are committed to working to ensure that as few people as possible suffer from the chaotic situation that it has created.”
Shortly after Trump signed the order, Canada’s government went the other way saying it will still accept refugees and not discriminate based on religion.

Saint John politician Elsie Wayne was polarizing but always ... - CBC - CBC.caFriday, November 04, 2016
The silver-haired dynamo might not have invented right-wing populism, but she certainly helped refine the concept during her years in municipal and federal office.
While others veer into demagoguery or quackery in their pursuit of broader political appeal, Elsie remained doggedly true to her roots as a Saint John stalwart who knew her base as well as she knew herself.
Among Saint Johners, Elsie was loved and, it has to be said, occasionally loathed.
As a city councillor, she was a loud, sometimes abrasive presence who would not be silenced. Woe betide anyone who tried.
Wayne went from city councillor to mayor to MP for Saint John, never losing an election.
Her longtime nemesis, Albert Vincent, once had a drink poured over his head during a council meeting by an exasperated Elsie.
Champion of the little guy
She rose to prominence as the vocal and tireless champion of the water-logged residents of flood-prone Glen Falls in East Saint John.
Where some might have dismissed their soggy pleas for help as the consequence of poor real estate judgment, Elsie waded into the fight to secure a holding pond to reduce the severity of the seasonal floods.
If, like King Canute, she couldn't roll back the tide, she at least managed to abate its effects.
Sept. 4: Donald Trump, JetBlue, and Labor Day - New York Daily NewsThursday, September 15, 2016
Trump's about bucks, not serviceMohegan Lake, N.Y.: Let’s be clear about Donald Trump: He’s not a politician; he’s not a demagogue; he’s an opportunist, chameleon-like to suit the circumstances. If Trump thought it would give him an advantage, he would bite the head off a Muslim on stage.
And his followers are not stupid, but I believe they are gullible. They’re being conned into thinking that a self-professed “billionaire” who has no record of public service could actually be effective as president and would have their best interests at heart.
He’s not in this to become President; he’s in this to make money, and to make his brand, and himself richer. I simply cannot believe, if he is as rich as he claims to be, that he would actually want a job that only pays $400,000 a year.
If I may paraphrase H.L. Mencken, “No one ever went broke underestimating the gullibility of the American public.” Michael W. Domis
