I’m putting up a partial transcript, as this video is being deleted fast. One deletion said it violated a “hate-speech” policy, meaning “, we can’t let the truth slip out!!!”
Steven Gern, a 10-year veteran of the Marine Corps working in Iraq, uploaded a video (below) to his Facebook page on Wednesday talking about President Trump’s immigration order and Gern’s own experiences asking locals how Americans are dealt with in the countries that were on the watch list.
In the short time it’s been on Facebook, the clip has been viewed over 35 million times, racked up over 1.4 million shares, 250 thousand “likes,” and almost 60 thousand comments.
Here’s the transcript of Gern’s viral statement:
“I work currently in Iraq, which is one of the countries that’s on the list. Obviously, in the United States, a lot is going on – and over here, this is a lot going on, as well, just a lot of things y’all don’t see.
The other morning, we were having a discussion on the executive order, and a lot of the Iraqis showed their displeasure in this executive order, and why they feel like they’ve been betrayed by the United States…
So, I listened to what they had to say, and after they were done yelling and screaming about their opinion on things, I asked a simple question, and I got an answer to that simple question, and I got it without hesitation. My simple questions was, ‘As an American, if I went out in town right now, would I be welcome?’
They answered me, and said, ‘Absolutely not, you would not be welcome.’ And I said, ‘Okay, what would happen if I went in town?’”
They said the locals would snatch me up and kill me within an hour. I would be tortured first, and after they were done torturing me, I would probably be beheaded. It would go on video for everybody to see as an example.
The point I’m trying to make is – this is the local populace that would do this. This isn’t ISIS. This isn’t al-Qaeda. So, my question to them was pretty simple after that.
If you would do this to me, in your country, why would I let you in my country? All this means to me is that if you had the opportunity to take the life of an American, you would do it.
Maybe that’s something y’all need to think about back there. If this is the way some of these cultures feel… about Americans, why would you be so naive to believe that, if they came to the United States, they would do anything any different than what they would do right here in their own country”
I’m just trying to inform you about what’s actually happening on the ground in one of the ‘banned countries’ – something you should probably think about. I can’t go out in town here. Why should they go out in town in my country?”

Radical Erdogan Builds 9000 Mosques & Bans Christian Liturgy
We see Radical Islam on the rise everywhere and what’s even more disturbing is that these radicals have penetrated almost every part of Europe and America. Their clear intent is to have more kids than the women of their hosting nations. Demographics indicate that Sweden is almost a gone case and that it has become the rape capital of Europe. England could follow a similar path in 10-20 years as Muslim women are giving birth to 4 kids on average to every 1.5 children European couples have. The videos below illustrate how the situation is going from bad to worse.
Then we have Radical Insane Erdogan, the wannabe Sultan whose ambition it is to promote Radical Islam as far as he can. He has built the largest Mosque in the world, and it’s not in Turkey, but it has been constructed in America. Now we find out that he has built almost 9,000 new mosques in Turkey and is banning Christian liturgy. If the Europe does not wake up to Radical Islam, there will be no Europe to wake up to in the years to come. The only places that are actively destroying the jihadists are Russia and China
A total of 8,985 mosques were built between 2005 and 2015 by the Turkish government over the last decade in Turkey, according to statistics released by Turkey’s Religious Affairs Directorate
While the Turkish government has built so many mosques across the country with state funds, it has banned Orthodox Christian liturgy in the Sumela Monastery, a historic site in Trabzon.
“Trabzon was settled by Greeks probably by the 7th century BC,” writes researcher Sam Topalidis for the website Pontos World. “Trabzon was the ancient capital of the Greek speaking Komnenos Byzantine Kingdom (1204–1461). It survived until 1461, eight years after the fall of Byzantine Constantinople when both localities fell to the Ottoman Turks.”
According to Topalidis, Trabzon’s Muslim population increased dramatically under the Ottoman rule due to:
Muslims moving into the city (Most of the Trabzon’s Muslims were involuntary immigrants)
Deportations of Christians out of the city, probably to Istanbul
Christians converting to Islam, probably for fear of deportation
“However, the most important reason for the conversions was probably due to the higher taxes paid by Christians (compared to Muslims), a strong economic incentive for the poorest Christians,” writes Topalidis.
The tax he refers to is the “jizya tax” — money paid by Christians and Jews in order to be allowed to survive and to keep practising their religion, according to Islamic law. Full Story
Genial warrior George Foreman has stood where President Donald Trump is today. As a two-time heavyweight boxing champion, he was in the ring while others watched, booed and criticized.
And he knows what it took to succeed.

“When you’re in something like this especially, you just got to fight,” he said Saturday.
“In the ring you don’t listen to anything,” said Foreman, who supported Trump in his campaign for the presidency.
“This was a guy I remember from way back. You could call him … and he would always return your call,” Foreman reminisced.
During his appearance on Fox and Friends, Foreman also noted that winning in politics or in boxing is sometimes because the person battling his way through is bound to come out on top.
“Sometimes people win because they’re winners,” he said. “Winning is an idea.”
Foreman said some places and people need help making the transformation into winners. That’s where Trump can help, he said.
“I’m hoping a mountain of social workers … he’ll drop these guys, social workers … into Chicago and make it a good place again,” Foreman said.
Foreman, whose post-boxing career has revolved around food, noted that, “I want to get into that White House and eat” and said that one of his major concerns was “to stop eating so much!”
