Australia deal not a sure thing after word that Trump yelled at Australian Prime Minister

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 2, 2017

“This is the worst deal ever,” sending “next Boston bombers” into the US!

President Donald Trump

We’ve been telling you about the rotten deal Obama made with Australia that doesn’t benefit the US one bit ever since it surfaced, here, November 4th. (One more Obama dirty deal left behind for Trump!)

In a rare show of strength on any issue involving refugees, the Chairmen of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees came out against the deal here a couple of weeks after Trump was elected.

Australia has its leftist open borders agitators too. They want the offshore detention facilities closed. Protests here in Melbourne last year. http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/pacific-news/317561/731-manus-island-detainees-sign-new-application

But, just a couple of days ago we heard Australian Prime Minister Turnbull telling his media that the deal would be honored by President Trump.  Now we are hearing the Administration’s side of it!

Before I give the latest news which I caught on CNN first thing this morning (remember I suggested you might want to watch CNN once in awhile because then you can see for yourself how they spin about news you know something about).

Here is what I know and you need to know as this continues to blow up today:

Australia does take refugees (CNN said this morning that they don’t!), but the Australian public doesn’t want these migrants (mostly Muslim men!) who tried to get into Australia by boat.  They were sent to detention on offshore islands where they failed to be granted asylum to live in Australia.

The Australian public does not want them and Turnbull is trying to save his political skin while human rights activists agitate and blast him from one side and the sensible Australian people from the other.

These are illegal migrants who failed to gain asylum in Australia! Australia doesn’t want them. Why are they our problem?

And, what are we getting from the deal? Supposedly Australia will take a number of Central American migrants parked in Costa Rica right now.***  So why are those people our problem?

***Update*** Excellent background report at the Center for Immigration Studies on the deal, by Nayla Rush, here.

To top it off, one of my Australian readers is saying that many of the 1,000-2,000 (numbers vary) in detention don’t want to come to “Donald Trump’s America” anyway!

Here is the news this morning, hat tip Judy:

President Trump reportedly blasted the Australian Prime Minister during a phone call between the leaders of the two longtime allies.

Trump told Australian leader Malcolm Turnbull that the conversation was “the worst call by far” among talks with various world leaders that day and ended the scheduled hour-long conversation after just 25 minutes, according to The Washington Post.

Trump was reportedly incensed that the Prime Minister expected him to abide by an Obama administration agreement to take in 1,250 refugees from Australia.

“This is the worst deal ever,” Trump told Turnbull in the call, adding that the country was trying to send the “next Boston bombers” into the US.

Trump was “yelling” at Turnbull during the call, according to SKY News in Australia, and the US president hung up the phone on him after 25 minutes.

Trump continued to rail against the refugee deal in a tweet sent Wednesday night.

“Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!” Trump tweeted.

Here we get the New York Post continuing the lie that these are ‘refugees.’  If they are legitimate refugees they are Australia’s problem!

The deal, however, includes refugees and not “illegal immigrants,” as Trump claimed.

[….]

The refugees in the agreement have fled Iraq, Iran, Sudan and Somalia. They have been living in facilities on islands off the coast of Australia.

congress

***This business of using refugees as pawns in political deals must stop.  In April 2012 I first testified to the US State Department and gave ten reasons why there needed to be a moratorium on refugee resettlement and this is #7:

7)   Congress needs to specifically disallow the use of the refugee program for other purposes of the US Government,especially using certain refugee populations to address unrelated foreign policy objectives—Uzbeks, Kosovars, Meshketians and Bhutanese (Nepalese) people come to mind.

So come on Congress, get to work! We know you are hiding behind Trump!

Be sure to let Donald Trump know how you feel about the Australia deal today!  Click here!

    Looks like Trump is now not “standing by his guns” and has dropped them!

    Mr Spicer said that Mr Trump would allow the deal struck under the previous Obama administration to continue, but would reserve the right to deny any refugee on a case-by-case basis.

      Here is what we should start asking: Which American towns are going to volunteer to take the mostly Muslim aliens who have lived in detention centers for years? Raise your hand!

  3. It looks like my comment disappeared. I guess I’m not allowed to leave even supportive comments on the websites run by “loving” Christians like yourself. Don’t worry, you won’t have to worry about my support, again, in any way.

      Dear Radicalwitch, I screen comments and I am not at the computer every minute of the day. I just now was going through the many from today. But, if you want to go away in a snit, go.

      • No, don’t want to go away in a snit. I’m having a bad day and feeling hated by the world. I’m crying like a child right now. I’m sorry.

          I understand the feeling sometimes, apology accepted. But, this is no time to waste time crying! We are on a roll and if everyone chips in a little time and energy we can literally now save America and Western Civilization. To everyone, find your place in the war!

  4. I remember seeing a news item quite a while ago featuring a Mulslim or some kind of Middle Eastern woman who was crying that she wanted to go back home because life in the U.S.A. is “hard.” “You have to work here!” *Gasp* The reason they love Germany so much is because they have several tiers of a welfare system there now that allows non-working people there to live as well or better than those who have a full-time job and maybe tend bar on the weekends to boot. And, no, they’re not going to want to come here for another reason, which is that nobody is going to put up with them, especially in certain parts of the country. I can’t imagine them trying to come in where I am. They wouldn’t want to be here, anyway. Certainly, we don’t want them and won’t tolerate them. Trump’s words about this resonate. For one thing, their attacks on women aren’t going to go over nearly as well since even granny packs heat; you have to do a lot of things for yourself here, we don’t have a lot of public services, charities, and welfare and that’s not the deal they’re looking for.

    But, this piece made me chuckle. I’m still not sure about Trump, but I love his work so far! If he keeps this up, he may go down in history as the greatest president of the last 150 years! I just hope he keeps going like this.

      The attraction of Germany to the illegals is precisely what brought them to Australia too. They genuinely believe that our overly generous welfare system should apply to them despite never having worked towards contributing to it. America is a tougher proposition, welfare is limited and the work ethic is stronger. Many who have previously managed to sneak in and get legitimised (due to slack Labor party vetting) have openly been disappointed that they haven’t been given free cars and housing on arrival!

    Our Prime Minister, Turnbull, is a conceited guy who seems to have taken Trump’s snub seriously. He’d be more suited as Master of Ceremonies on a cruise ship, waving and smiling at adoring crowds. He’s not used to straight talking.
    But it’ll do him good, getting his head around Trump’s very non-diplomatic style of running his show. Can’t say Turnbull wasn’t warned, Obama’s really left him with a red face seeing as it was never a deal that had Trump’s blessing at any time.
