BREAKING: Trump Has New Plan for Gitmo… Get Ready for ISIS Prisoners

On the campaign trail, President Donald Trump vowed that he would get “tough” with radical Islamic extremists, and repeatedly vowed to refill the military’s terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay with “bad dudes,” after former President Barack Obama virtually emptied the place out.

It appears that Trump is close to following through with that promise. A draft executive order is circulating the White House that would instruct the Pentagon to house future prisoners from the Islamic State group in Gitmo, The New York Times reported.

There has been some concern in political circles over what such an order could mean for the war against the Islamic State. Some believe that it could jeopardize our entire fight against the terror organization.

“If a judge says the Sept. 11 authorization does not cover such a detention, it would not only make that detention unlawful, it would weaken the legal basis for the entire war against the Islamic State,” Jack Goldsmith, a Harvard Law School professor, told The Times.

As The Times noted, Congress never actually authorized the use of force against the Islamic State. The Obama administration used the already existing use of force authorization against Al Qaeda, which dated form 2001, arguing the the Islamic State was a splinter cell of Al Qaeda.

Trump would most likely be able to get Congress to authorize use of force against the Islamic State group, as Republicans control both houses of Congress, and it would be political suicide to publicly state you were against fighting terrorism.

You can read the draft order here.

Democrats who cheered every time Obama released more prisoners from Gitmo are going to be panicking over the latest development. Worldwide terrorists are getting another proof that Trump won’t be the pushover Obama was.

Yahoo News noted that this new draft executive order leaves out language about re-opening the controversial CIA “black sites” — covert holding facilities for detained terrorist suspects that had been set up in various countries after the 9/11 attacks. Earlier reports had suggested that the Trump administration was looking at re-opening the black sites, but it has since backed down from that position.

It should be emphasized that at this point this is simply a draft. Dozens of drafts of executive orders are circulated around the White House all the time — many of which are never signed or even seriously considered.

What this does show is that Trump is serious about using Gitmo to house some of the most dangerous extremists in the world. He isn’t going to let some liberal tears stop him from doing what he considers necessary to protect America.

GITMO ready for business and under New Management 

Exactly!  

Now there are three persons of interest...

Dreams can come true !!!

Trump needs to obtain an update to the original Congressional Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF)  against Iraq Resolution of 2002, to include the use of military force against ISIS and all radical Islamic Jihadist organizations... regardless of their affiliation with Al Qaeda... This is necessary to legally deploy US Forces, against ISIS and its sister terrorist groups.. This is something Obama failed to do.

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authorization_for_Use_of_Military_For...

The original AUMF did not include ISIS or other groups not affiliated with Al Qaeda... those newer groups who did not exist at the time of the September 11th attack of the US by radical Islam.

Wait, hold off on isis, they are only a "jv team" according to our x-president

Can not remember Obama or Bush getting this much exposure over any of their EO's

Every time We turn around the media has something to say about President Trump, his administration, his family or some person that supports President Trump and his policies.

Trump needs to tell the courts that their decisions on the law end at the court house steps.... just like Andrew Jackson and Abe Lincoln did. Each Branch of Government is SEPARATE AND EQUAL... thus the interpretation of the laws and orders of the President are subject to the President's interpretation which is equal to and separate from that of the court.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
