For those of you who think that Google AMP is a horrible thing, here's the actual link - https://sethfrantzman.com/2017/01/28/obamas-administration-made-the-muslim-ban-possible-and-the-media-wont-tell-you/

What is the point of it?

The point of AMP? It is ostensibly a standard to make pages load extremely quickly & display well on mobile devices. However, it works by copying the page to Google's servers & serving it from there. It makes it difficult to go to the original site& practically impossible to find the actual URL (from the AMP page).

For a more in-depth explanation, check out this post - https://80x24.net/post/the-problem-with-amp/ There are several such posts cropping up around the web.

Technically they are incorporated by reference to the statute. But yeah, fake news.

Exactly, reference to the statute Obama passed back in 2015 when Obama did his Muslim ban.

I read the order and did not even notice it because I was focused on other things. Shows how easy it is to take what you are told.

Because they have never been on the list. Also, even though SA funds a lot of trouble-making, not many of the (recent) trouble makers are from SA afaik.

It seems like a solid way to cut back their funding if the rich can't send their children to the US to party and study.

i dont know, I want to give trump the benefit of the doubt, banning saudi nationals would be risky due to the precarious state of the petrodollar and it would be dumb to step on too many powerful toes this early in his term. i agree that they should be and i hope trump makes the right choice at some point.

Good question. Wouldn't bother me if they were I suppose.

"If you want to ban “terrorists,” these are the last people to hit with a refugee ban."

Oi, tell that to Europe.

And sometimes you find the sweet spot where the FakeNews has blown away and the AlternateFacts yet to begin building up.

"Facts" keep getting countered by those pesky alternate facts.

Instead the government should be using the best intelligence possible to find people being radicalized

This author needs a reality check. The US trained, funded and created ISIL/ISIS and use they for proxy wars. Regan did it with Afghanistan (Team B sent prisoners from Egypt, rapists and murders, to go be freedom fighters and they later became the Taliban).

The United States creates terrorism. Not funds or helps or encourages .. but straight out creates. The 1973 Coupe in Chile, Bay of Pigs, Iranian Contras, School of the Americas .. it goes and an on and on .. multiple presidents over multiple generations all doing the same god damn thing. Trump is no different. He's a continuation of Obama. It's all war, all the time.

Seems like most of the terrorists of the world were either directly created by the US, or else they rise as blowback to US policy, and sometimes both.
