Crazy Like A Fox?

It’s highly unlikely, but maybe Trump and his cronies know exactly what they’re doing here.  Maybe they are banking on the travel ban and other extreme measures making the U.S. more vulnerable to attack.  By making groups more hostile towards the U.S., it strengthens their argument that we need to tighten things down more.  It’s kind of like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

As things seem to get more and more dangerous for the U.S. and its citizens, the administration will insist that the only way to address it is through more military spending and more Orwellian oversight.  They’ll scare U.S. citizens into agreeing to letting Big Brother take care of them.

I personally think that the ban is “anti-American” seeing as how welcoming immigrants is how the country was built.  I think it does nothing but makes us more vulnerable.
