I think we need to get all of that information before we prejudge anything.

I think the early days of this administration are going to be described in the history books as days of action. And the American people welcome the decisiveness that President Trump has shown on this issue, putting the safety and secretary of the American people above the niceties of communicating with people in Washington or in some cases around the world. He acted. He put the safety of the American people first. And I think this, that’s the kind of leadership the American people want to see.

‘Donald Trump wants to remove us from undue federal scrutiny by removing “white supremacists” from the definition of “extremism,”’ the founder and editor of the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer (which takes its name from a Nazi propaganda publication) wrote in a post on the site. ‘Yes, this is real life. Our memes are all real life. Donald Trump is setting us free.’

I put a commission together with Judge Mukasey, with Congressman McCaul, Pete King, a whole group of other very expert lawyers on this. And what we did was we focused on, instead of religion, danger. The areas of the world that create danger for us. Which is a factual basis. Not a religious basis. Perfectly legal, perfectly sensible, and that’s what the ban is based on. It’s not based on religion. It’s based on places where there are substantial evidence that people are sending terrorists into our country.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.
― Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends

Arthur: …Why are you hesitating?
Gramp: …In this moment, these undeveloped pictures are full of potential…Stolen glimpses of the past gifted to us by chance.
Arthur: So get them developed!
Gramp: But…it’s also possible they’re just TERRIBLE PHOTOS…

Good old silver gelatin! Remember that special feeling of dread and anticipation after every frame was shot? I couldn’t wait to see how badly I screwed up the exposure!
“…Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovere’d country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?”
– William Shakespeare, Hamlet Act 3, scene 1
