    emoticon five enormous differences Obama vs Trump
    1. Much narrower focus: vetting procedures applied to citizens of a single country (Iraq) and then only to refugees and applicants for Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs), created by Congress to help Iraqis (and later Afghans) who supported the United States in those conflicts.
    2. Not a ban: Obama administration did not “ban visas for refugees from Iraq for six months.” For one thing, refugees don’t travel on visas.
    3. Grounded in specific threat: The Obama administration’s 2011 review came in response to specific threat information, including the arrest in Kentucky of two Iraqi refugees
    4. Orderly, organized process: The Obama had dozens of deputies and principals committee meetings, involving Cabinet-level officials— including the State, Homeland Security and Justice Departments — and the intelligence community.
    5. Far stronger vetting today: purpose of the Obama administration’s 2011 review was to enhance the already stringent vetting to which refugees and SIV applicants were subjected. rigorous procedures, which lead to waiting times of 18-24 months for many Iraqi and Syrian refugees, remain in place today and are continually reviewed by interagency officials

    regardless of where someone gets their news from, it is hard to argue with videos, tweets from Trump himself, and press conferences. When I read something I don't quite believe, I check Politico, Snopes, or one of the other fact checkers. Censoring the press is a clear path to dictatorship.

    Here's to New Year Renewals for a Happy Healthy 2017...
    Let's stop looking back at what we didn't do
    and focus on having more fun on the journey.
    Life is all about learning to dance in the rain.
