Stephen Miller, Trump’s 31 year old Alt-Right white supremacist senior adviser (for what? What are his qualifications, beside being paranoid and hating people of color) hit the talk shows today. He made quite a splash!
From Face the Nation:
And President Trump is going to go to Congress and ask them to invest in our military so once again we will have unquestioned military strength beyond anything anybody can imagine.
Scared yet? I guess 7000 nukes isn’t scary enough.
The end result of this, though, is that our opponents, the media and the whole world will soon see as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.
Not question the powers of the President? Seriously? This guy sounds like he is a throwback to the Brown Shirts of Germany.
When asked if they are in control at the White House?
I think to say that we’re in control would be a substantial understatement. The president of the United States has accomplished more in just a few weeks than many presidents accomplish in an entire administration.
Well, Trump has succeeded in making many of us realize he is dangerously mentally ill.
From This Week on ABC:
Stephanopoulus asked what they plan to do:
We can pursue further executive actions. All options are on the table. The point I want to make to you, George, and the point I want to make your listeners is that we have equal branches of government in this country. The judiciary is not supreme.
A district judge in Seattle cannot force the President of the United States to change our laws and our Constitution because of their own personal views. The president has the power, under the INA, section 212(f)[8 U.S.C. 1182], to suspend the entry of aliens when it’s in the national interest.
Actually, the judiciary IS supreme when it comes to deciding on laws.
And the bottom line is the president’s powers, in this area, represent the apex of executive authority. And we have multiple tools across multiple fronts to ensure that we are preventing terrorist infiltration of our country and to ensure that those who enter our country share our values and support our people, something supported overwhelmingly by the vast majority of the American public.
The President is still constrained by law. He can’t decide, “I want to kill everyone named Nancy with blonde hair,” and do so.
It’s estimated that illegal immigration costs our country, state, local and federal benefits, about $100 billion a year.
Stopping new illegal immigration, preventing the affects that will have on our schools, on our hospitals, on our welfare system, on our wage earners, will save taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars. This wall will pay for itself many, many, many times over.
And this remarkable exchange. Even George S. has had enough of their lies. He practically chased him off the show.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Do you have any evidence?
MILLER: — issue — if this is an issue that interests you, then we can talk about it more in the future. And we now have our government is beginning to get stood up. But we have a Department of Justice and we have more officials.
An issue of voter fraud is something we’re going to be looking at very seriously and very hard.
But the reality is, is that we know for a fact, you have massive numbers of non-citizens registered to vote in this country. Nobody disputes that. (All experts dispute this.) And many, many highly qualified people, like Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, have looked deeply into this issue and have confirmed it to be true and have put together evidence.
And I suggest you invite Kris Kobach onto your show and he can walk you through some of the evidence of voter fraud —
STEPHANOPOULOS: You have — you have —
MILLER: — in greater detail.
STEPHANOPOULOS: — just for the record, you have provided absolutely no evidence. The president’s made a statement.
MILLER: The White House has provided enormous evidence with respect to voter fraud, with respect to people being registered in more than one state, dead people voting, non-citizens being registered to vote. George, it is a fact and you will not deny it, that there are massive numbers of non-citizens in this country, who are registered to vote. That is a scandal. (Um, no they haven’t provided ANY evidence.)
We should stop the presses. And as a country, we should be aghast about the fact that you have people who have no right to vote in this country, registered to vote, canceling out the franchise of lawful citizens of this country.
That’s the story we should be talking about. And I’m prepared to go on any show, anywhere, anytime, and repeat it and say the President of the United States is correct 100 percent.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, you just repeated, though, you just made those declarations. But, for the record, you have provided zero evidence that the president was the victim of massive voter fraud in New Hampshire. You provided zero evidence —
MILLER: Anyone who’s worked —
STEPHANOPOULOS: — hold on.
MILLER: — politics is familiar —
STEPHANOPOULOS: You have provided zero evidence that the president’s claim that he would have won the general — the popular vote if 3 million to 5 million illegal immigrants hadn’t voted, zero evidence for either one of those claims.
MILLER: Well, it’s —
STEPHANOPOULOS: Thanks a lot for joining us this morning.
MILLER: — that non-citizen voting issues, pervasive and widespread, and we are going to protect our country from voter fraud. We’re going to protect our borders from terrorism. And we’re going to protect innocent men, women and children from violent criminal illegal immigrants that need to be removed from this country.
And our country will create jobs, safety, prosperity and security, particularly for disenfranchised working people of every background, faith and ethnicity in this country.
STEPHANOPOULOS: You can start by providing evidence to back up your claims. Thanks for joining us this morning.
MILLER: Thank you.
BAM!! Mic drop!! This is how you handle these liars.
