Sir: While Flynn made a big mistake which cost his job, before liberals attack Trump for security lapses, please point out to them (and the pubic) that Jeh Johnson and 3 of his top officials have just been found to have used unsecured email systems, thereby endangering our secrets. Do not stop immediate responses to these attacks by hysterics.
Watch tape of Tucker Carlson last night. The lady (a teacher) who attacked a Trump supporter presented the very meaning of what projection is. She was as close to the many labels (Nazi, fascist, etc.) as I've seen and she is totally unaware that she is projecting that which she supposedly abhors. Please start pounding liberals for what they are doing since they seem incapable of recognizing what hypocrites they are and what anti-free speech supporters they are. They are truly dangerous for this country and their violence need to be firmly and permanently addressed.
Thank you.

You can only win the ban by using the argument that a religion that violates the constitution CANNOT be protected by the constitution. Their religion tells them to kill, punish, behead, blowup, and stone non-believers, and violators of their religious beliefs. Their religion is full of these kinds of atrocities and cruelties. You have to show the evidence of their constitutionally violating beliefs about human-to-human conduct condoned, permitted, and encouraged as duties to the religion.

It is essential to protect American citizens from terrorism, but the order should have a different name like : A ban of refugees from Middle East states at war. And appease them by setting up refugee camps with tents, food and medical. Just change the name to not be a ban, but an action of determent, and directing them to camps where they can go through a screening process before coming to the US...

Thank you for the first two weeks of being the messenger for the American people who voted for you. Praying for you and family. Please don't back down and I am so grateful you keep us informed with the real truth of the news. Fake media is being eliminated because we finally have a President who want's to "Make America Great" again and put us first. May the Lord send his angels to protect you and the cabinet as the team fights it's way to "Making America Great Again! Love you, your family and the cabinet and again Thank You!

My heart is so heavy today with all that our country is facing and all the crazies out there defending and standing up for anyone and everyone EXCEPT America and our leaders. I have no idea how many times I have lifted the USA and our President up in prayer to our Heavenly Father and asked for guidance and protection, just this morning alone, not to mention all during the night as I was awakened and felt God was asking me to pray for you and the USA! As I sit and write this to you, I think of the book of JOB as satin moved across the land seeking those whom he could devour. To me, it seems he is on the rampage again today as badly as back then. Remember how Job had to go through all the trials and tribulations and loose all he had but God replaced all and more, because Job kept the faith. Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence I pray God guides you and keep you and us safe and in His grace and lead us through this storm! Amen Please, Keep the faith and trust God for America needs you as our leader in this time of great need. We are Praying for you without ceasing.

Could we start a movement across America of the common man, going on "only" their local TV, making a statement for all American's to stand together while president Trump tries to pull this great nation out of it's, well, mess, that too many money hungry government people in the past has put us in? I may be wrong but I believe the racial issues in America, today, are caused my the major networks and I also believe it was done on purpose. either way, we cannot lose anything by standing together now. We all, only stand to gain if President Trump is truly what he says he is and he can fight the government and get some things changed.

Who is laughing now? Many tears will fall before these 4 years are up. Mr. Trump will put the squeeze on all who put him in office. It has already started with his trumped up healthcare plan. Since you ignore reality, we will see if you ignore the reality of no healthcare, higher taxes, no credibility and no wall. Guess who has been dooped?

I think it’s disgraceful of Donald Trump, trying to protect American citizens from Islamic terrorists by introducing a temporary ban on Muslims entering the USA. He should let them all in and when another outrage occurs, find out if any of the recent arrivals are responsible. That worked well in respect of the Twin Towers, didn’t it!
I keep hearing that many of the attacks are by ‘Home Grown Terrorists’, well that’s OK then! I wonder how our children and grandchildren will feel in a few years when they hear the same story. Will they blame today’s Politicians? They should.
• I would be interested to know the religion of these ‘Home Grown Terrorists’. Is it Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism or even Islam? I would also be interested to know how many other religions have Clerics that advocate terrorism.

• We all know that the majority of Muslims are good people and that it is only a small minority that are actual terrorists, but when this small minority are supported by a large minority, which is the case, then that is a cause for great concern!

• I was listening to an interview with a taxi driver in New York who said “I’m a Muslim and proud to be one, but I came to the USA because Muslims don’t know how to run a country, so I don’t wish for this country to become one’’.

• No, you people keep on protesting, you are unlikely to personally be a victim of a terrorist attack, so what does it matter if someone else is?

So, Roy... you would prefer to have an event first (terrorist attack) in which many Americans will perish, before you decide to protect the country?
Let me ask you, if you have children, I am sure you would want to protect them from any harm, would you not do everything as possible to avoid exposing them a possible threat knowing where it may be coming from?
Remember, this ban is for radicals, those who believe that killing Christians, destroying prosperous countries, and die professing salvation through their belief.
Yes there are good people everywhere in the world who deserve to live at peace, but there are those who sick self gratification by harming others, who infiltrate through the cracks as good people with a mission to kill.
This ban is not for the good people, but for the time been we have to be very careful and smart as to how we will handle the terrorist threat... nobody looks after our own interest but us the Americans who love our country and are building our future... don't you get it?
