Bread & Circuses With Donald Trump: He Won’t Ban Muslims – Read the Fine Print

By Debbie Schlussel

trumpwishywashyislamiccrescent.jpg

Don’t believe the hype. Sadly, Donald Trump will never ban Muslims from entering America . . . even if he legally could. Trump certainly knows how to manipulate the lumpenconservatariat. That’s not news. And his statement yesterday–including a position paper–about banning Muslims from entering the U.S. is more Trumpian smoke and mirrors. Bread and circuses stuff. You gotta read the fine print.

Trump said yesterday that as President, he would implement a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims entering America . . .”until we can figure out what the heck is going on.” He reiterated that, this morning, in a phone interview with George Snuffalupagus on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” stating he would ban all Muslims from entering the U.S. “until we can figure out what the hell is going on.” One word change, no difference. But the part in italics makes all the difference. He will never ban Muslims, and he’ll say, “Well, I figured what the hell [or heck] is going on.” Um, we and Trump already know “what the hell is going on.” Readers of this site know what the hell is going on. You’ve known since at least 9/11 what the hell is going on. And I’ve been writing and otherwise warning about what the hell is going on, for decades before that.

“What the hell is going on” is that we are facing an Islamic threat that will wipe the West out, and its timeline has been sped up at geometric rates because we keep insisting we are “not at war with Islam.” But Islam keeps impressing upon us that Islam is at war with us and has been at war with Western culture for centuries . . . since the Seventh Century, to be exact, when a violent moongod cult led by a dishonest criminal thug suddenly became a “religion.”

Donald Trump knows what the hell/heck is going on, and he will never ban Muslims from entering, even though we should. Legally, there are the nine not-so-Supreme elitist egomaniacal liberals who would never allow it. There are two major rival organized prostitution syndicates pretending to be political parties. And they would never give up the pimping business, so they would stop him. And there is Trump himself, who has too many businesses with Muslims, too many hotels in Dubai and Abu Dhabi to ever even considering barring Muslims from the U.S. He’ll never do it. As I’ve noted on this site, he couldn’t even bring himself to sever ties with jihadist Muslim Farouk Shami.

But Trump is a master baker/promoter of bread and circuses. If you don’t know the term, “bread and circuses,” here’s a tutorial. He’s giving the White working-class crowd that’s buoying him in the lead in the national polls what he knows they want to hear. And what he will never ever do. And predictably, all of the liberal media and “American” (In Name Only) Muslim leadership–dominated by extremist Islam, the redundantly-phrased strain of Islam that is dominant here in the U.S. and around the world–are up in arms about it, acting as if Trump would ever have the guts to do this. And their feigned outrage is going to further buoy Trump in the polls. The acting on all sides here is at the same time so obvious and transparent and also Academy-Award-worthy.

But, again, Trump won’t do it. He gave himself an easy Clintonesque/Arafatian out: “until we figure out what the hell/heck is going on,” something we and he have already done. We know what’s happening. We know what the threat is: Islam and Muslims. But we will never and do not now have the resolve to stop them at our shores. And, as I’ve noted on this site for more than 1.5 decades, it’s already too late. The cancer is here and it has metastasized. There are plenty more Syed Farooks and Tashfeen Maliks already here, silently waiting to make their move. And there are also millions of Muslims on our shores who don’t need a single bullet or pipe bomb. They are winning in forcing America to assimilate to Islam’s backward, thuggish demands on our culture and way of life. And we are giving in every step of the way, fomenting more of this.

As I’ve noted before, Vladimir Lenin once commanded, “Probe with the bayonet. If you find mush, advance; steel, retreat.” They’ve found the mush. And the mush isn’t just America. It’s the Americans who actually believe that Donald Trump will ban Muslims at the border.

Bread and circuses, my friend. Rome ceases to exist, but you are too busy believing the Presidential-wannabe baker and ringmaster. He goes by “The Donald.”

***

By the way, while I’ve long been a proponent of banning Muslims from entering our country (they come only to invade and conquer–we are Dar Al-Harb), and as I’ve noted they are already here in the millions, there is another thing Muslims have done to evade such a policy already. As I’ve noted frequently on this site over the last 1.5 decades and more, Islamic terrorists and Muslims here just to deceive us, know how to pose as Arab (and Pakistani, Iranian, etc.) Christians. They know what to say, what to do, how to game the system no matter what. They present themselves with names like, “Milad” (Arabic for “the birth” [of Jesus]) and so on. And we’ve already let in fake Christians–plenty of ’em–who are actually Muslims. Still, banning Muslims would be a start. But Trump’ll never do it. He’s already added a qualifier/a caveat.

But nobody seems to want to notice.

If you really believe Trump would ever ban Muslims from entering America, even temporarily, I have a house in San Bernardino with 12 pipe bombs to sell you.

Yes, Debbie, every word, you’re absolutely right, as usual, on all counts. It’s terribly frightening. Keep on fighting, girl, don’t stop. I love you.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on December 8, 2015 at 12:53 pm

Debbie, this is a VERY debatable position that to me seems unwinnable of whether or not that Muslims should be banned from entering the US. I’ve over the years have argued that if the Muslims who are migrating here (and those who were born and raised in this nation) “really” want to be American citizens, then they’ll have to take a “litmus” test of them adapting to our philosophical laws, values and so forth of this nation.

But unfortunately the problem stems to where I 100% with you Ms. Schlussel is that the few million Muslims who are already here (the US Muslim populace is at 1% according to 2010 US Census Bureau last I learned) have in the past have either done evil maneuvers such as what happened last week in San Bernardino, California of Syed Farook shooting up that place (and the Muslim female of the crime was busted were she said that she wanted to orchestrate more attacks such as that in this country) and also “failed” terrorists plots were they’ve been stopped by the government.

I was thinking that if such crimes that the Muslims here in the US commit of either a successful terrorists attacks or failed plot attempt under the guise of their faith of Islam, then yeah, I think that they ought to be deported from here and sent to a nation of their volitions on where they want to remain?

Sean R. on December 8, 2015 at 12:54 pm

Trump is laughing ………….at everyone.

At the boobs who believe him.

At the RINOs, pundits, commie Van Jones who are frothing at the mouth to denounce him, etc.

As long as they spell his name correctly, Trump does not care.

slp on December 8, 2015 at 1:38 pm

I find people who froth at the mouth over it more interesting than the fact Trump brought it up.

Islam has been taking over our lives even without murdering us in cold blood and we’ve lost the ability to defend ourselves.

Even if Trump was really sincere, I don’t think he alone could revive it.

NormanF on December 8, 2015 at 1:58 pm

Because if we really wanted to stop Islam, our society would go a lot further than Trump.

I’d say upon reflection, its not like he doesn’t have the guts to say “stop and thwart history!”

Its that rest of us don’t have the guts to actually do it.

NormanF on December 8, 2015 at 2:03 pm

I interpreted the phrase ‘until we know what’s going” on a little differently. I understood Trump to mean ‘until we know what’s going on’ with our vetting system 9such as it is), and our ability to identify and distinguish Muslims prone to terrorism from any other mUslims, to the extent they exist. One reason that I see it this way is his constant iteration of the phrase that ‘we don’t know who these people are’ as justification for a ban.

Granted he may not be sincere, and granted there are huge difficulties in implementing such a policy. But I think, nevertheless, if he does not do another thing, he has weakened somewhat the politically correct veneer that surrounds Islam in the United States.

Little Al on December 8, 2015 at 2:12 pm

LA:

Implementing it is no more realistic than his talk of building a border wall.

The distance between of what most Americans want and what needs to actually happen is like the house full of pipe bombs in San Bernardino.

That said, all the feigned outrage at him will only make Trump even more popular.

NormanF on December 8, 2015 at 2:18 pm

Debbie with this post you’re more on point than Ben Roethlisberger was when he ran the offense last weekend against Indy. What a game. Bread and circuses is a more apt term to describe The Donald than anything. With that one statement he has managed to do several things that warm my heart:
He’s pissed off the media. From girly man waifs like George Snuffaluppagus to numskull twits like Alisyn Camerota and racist ingrates like Geraldo Rivera Trump made them all aghast talking about Muslims.
He’s made the other Republicans running for president upset. Still not knowing why he’s so popular losers like Bush and Kasich are using Trump’s statement to try to bolster their campaigns. With both of these guys in the bottom 2% they’ll need all the help they can get.
He’s made the three stooges running for president on the democrackhead side twist themselves into knots denouncing Trump so that they can continue to pander to get the Muslim vote come next year. With Killary Benghazi mewling that we shouldn’t be at war with an entire religion.
He’s made lunk heads from the RNC like Rinsed Prius get his panties on a wad. You just know that this eunich wet noddle doesn’t want Trump to get the nomination. He and his eraser headed buddy “The Architect” Karl Rove are doing their best to try to help Jeb but he’s sinking faster that the Titanic.
Now for my personal favorite of who Trump has pissed off. Just like when he pissed off the racists from BLM he’s pissed off CAIR. This group should have it’s tax exempt status revoked and it should be disbanded. With it’s past dealing with HAMAS and it’s disinformation and propaganda anything that causes them heartburn (doing my best Jack Nicholson Joker imitation)”brings a smile to my face.” Sure Trump would never really do what he said but to watch the above listed people get all wee weed up (as our Islamic Capitulator-in-Chief likes to say) is too funny.

Ken B on December 8, 2015 at 3:29 pm

    Yes The point is he says what we all think. He’s bold; we’re tired of appeasers. I’m sure that if Debbie could be a dictator for a day – a benevolent one, of course, she would say that all Muslims are banned from entering the United States and Israel, as well. We can dream can’t we?

    DinaK on December 8, 2015 at 3:53 pm

    ROTFLMAO!!! That’s a bunch of good ones there, Ken B, in addition to your usual good sense. Do you do stand up?

    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on December 8, 2015 at 3:58 pm

      Hey Alfredo good buddy I’m here all week…LOL

      Ken B on December 10, 2015 at 10:42 am

YIKES. Good thing that guy has a beard in the photo. Otherwise I wouldn’t be able to tell which one is the chick.

Sean M on December 8, 2015 at 3:32 pm

Debbie, I know what you’re saying, yes he would never do it. However, I really do think that what he really means is backing off of the huge influx of so-called refugees – he just said it inartfully.

DinaK on December 8, 2015 at 3:50 pm

Debbie, I agree w/ you and am still split b/w Trump, Cruz and Carson. However, one good thing his statement yesterday did is that the genie is out of the bottle. People can now openly discuss banning Muslim entry, and a step further – deporting Muslims.

Up to now, nobody dared bring up the fact that the problem in America is Muslims. Trump is the first to suggest it, and even w/ that weasely qualifier, he’s being branded by the entire party. But from this point on, that is one more issue in the campaign, and any rogue candidate who manages to steal it and get noticed can run away w/ considerable votes

I agree that there are good chances that it is unconstitutional. We need to have an amendment that recognizes that Islam is something that’s more akin to Communism or Nazism than it is to any religion – Christianity or Judaism. The only reasons that Islam gets recognized as a religion are

– It has close to 2B followers
– It was founded in the 7th century

Otherwise, most of its tenets are a cross b/w the geopolitical ambitions of Communism and the cultist practices of the Branch Davidians.

But we can boycott Muslims, and make them feel so unwelcome that few will want to come here at all

Infidel on December 8, 2015 at 4:08 pm

I think that just as NBC severed relations w/ Trump, enabling him to be even less inhibited in going after illegals, his Muslim business associates in the Gulf will also sever ties w/ him, and that may send him more squarely into the anti-Muslim camp

Infidel on December 8, 2015 at 4:12 pm

No worries in the Trump camp about what he says…I am beginning to think the Shiites are installing their own man in the WH so as to get the Sunni’s man and his party of Dhimmis out. Money talks, and the language it speaks is Arabic with a faint whiff of rude oil n it’s breath. With all that Syrian oil being pumped into the world right now the price of oil is dropping to the point where Islamic oil is becoming worthless.
Denmark is talking of Closing the Bridge to prevent muslims coming over from that sociological Disaster that was once Sweden. If they ( and Hungary,etc etc ) can do it, so Should the USA.

Aron B on December 8, 2015 at 4:24 pm

I’ve said even with the weaselly qualifier. I will vote for Trump.

Here’s why – in principle he gets it and that’s enough for me.

And I’m realistic enough to not expect miracles.

NormanF on December 8, 2015 at 4:56 pm

Just read that Germany evacuated some 2 million people by sea from East Prussia (now Kaliningrad Region) as the Soviet Army had cut off all land routes during the final weeks of WW II.

Some 70 years later and with cheap international air travel, Western governments mysteriously find it “impossible” to remove a few thousand, let alone millions of foot soldiers in making up the current hijra jihad (Muslim warfare by mass resettlement.)

Historian on December 8, 2015 at 5:03 pm

Historian:

Yup. In the unlikely event further Muslim immigration was banned, we still wouldn’t kick out Muslims already here.

And many of them are time bombs waiting to go off.

NormanF on December 8, 2015 at 5:07 pm

American survival itself depends on getting the islam out of America. I still support Trump, but read MY fine print: if it leads to the enlightenment of the government of what we the people are demanding; if it leads to more of us doing something about it; if it leads to constitutionalists (attorneys and patriots) being called into action against it; if it leads to action of the Coalition of Constitutional Sheriffs to enforce the laws upon congress; and if it leads to an entirely new administration with an entirely new deck of department heads appointed by someone who loves America!

marlene on December 8, 2015 at 5:12 pm

    Happy Hanukkah, Debbie.

    marlene on December 8, 2015 at 5:14 pm

I’m with DS. I feel very proud agreeing with her. What troubles me is that this country full of drooling “Proles” don’t. I want everyone who strongly disagrees with her to be the first to get it in a bad way by the Jihadis. They take people out, so wouldn’t it be nice if they can take out their Dhimmi supporters first? I’d love it.

Look at the picture above. If I saw that in line somewhere you know what I would think. And I would have been RIGHT. But that don’t matter to dopey yanks. They are so not on the page they should be.

DS knows Trump more than his twitterpatted supporters claim to. It’s hard to watch a group of peeps NOT fooled by Obama-Putin be so fooled by Trump.

I will say it was nice to hear someone say something so bold, thou’. He don’t even believe it but I like to at least pretend how nice it would be if we had an America that would agree with something so spot on and dire. Some Libtard was beside their whack self because they wanted to hug Miss Lindsay Graham because he took the opposite point of view of Trump on the Mooooooooslims. I rolled my eyes because it’s frickin’ PATHETIC that the dopey Libtard Donks don’t realize the GOP they hate and despise is more on THEIR side than MINE. I’m jack of all those effin’ Bogans!! That annoys me almost as mush as their love of Islam annoys me!!

Skunky on December 8, 2015 at 5:28 pm

    You said it Skunky. Girlfriend you especially hit it out of the park about that dope Lindsey Graham and the other limp noodled GOP. It was especially funny hearing him get all upset about what Trump said about the Muslims. He needs to just get out of the race because he has as much of a chance as Obama saying anything bad about Islam.

    Ken B on December 10, 2015 at 10:47 am

The point is, come November 2016, we will have to choose one person to be president. Do you want Killary, Trump or Cruz?

gizz on December 8, 2015 at 5:39 pm

Election promises are election promises.
Trump gets enough vilification that I have no interest in adding to it here.

I’d rather have the conversation the media wouldn’t.
This Arafatian escape clause would be a nice touch if the MSM wasn’t playing Baghdad Bob but that’s not reality.

Mochizuki Koga on December 8, 2015 at 6:45 pm

I think it’s worth noting that for more than a century, liberals have implemented legal strictures to solidify the political gains (sic) they have made. They have done this both on local and national levels. This has happened in labor relations, civil rights, and, more and more, in foreign affairs.

But at certain times in history, legal restrictions can be overcome by one means or another. For any substantial constructive change to take place in this country, it will, most likely, be necessary to politically challenge stifling legislation and court decisions, whether in the areas of immigration, affirmative action, budget negotiations, the increased role of government, or, in this case, protecting ourselves against Muslim terrorism.

It would also be helpful if a few conservative politicians, to the extent such people exist, were to point out the legal binds liberals have constricted us to, and take some initiative in helping us overcome these barriers.

Little Al on December 8, 2015 at 6:57 pm

“their feigned outrage” isn’t feigned it’s calculated and it’s calculated to do damage not because Trump will actually do it but because he’ll actually talk about it.

If you want to win the fight first win the argument. So many dopey and not so dopey conservatives never understood that because the mind numbing mantra of the left overtook them decades ago but they never abandoned their comfort zones.
These paralytic zombies still will not get off the field although their hatred for Trump is palpable.

Mochizuki Koga on December 8, 2015 at 7:03 pm

“the nine not-so-Supreme elitist egomaniacal liberals”

Antonin Scalia would probably be surprised to see himself described as an “egomaniacal liberal”.

I thought you were going to vote for Trump in your primary? Who would be better?

Bee on December 8, 2015 at 7:05 pm

Bee, Cruz is more consistent in many ways. But he still can’t get himself to directly name Islam. he keeps using terms like Islamism, Radical Islamic Terrorism (why not Radical Islamist terrorism?) Radical Jihad…

Infidel on December 8, 2015 at 9:05 pm

And who else is saying things like this other than Trump? Easy to sit back on your @ss and criticize others. Whatever. Go “tweet” something.

sybil on December 8, 2015 at 9:50 pm

    Tweet, or make a vacuous speech like president obama did on Sunday? Where he pleaded with Congress to pass a law that would preclude people on the No Fly List from being able to buy a gun? You know, like the two POS sub-humans who shot over 30 people in San Bernardino, who were NOT on the No Fly List? He also obfuscated about the bitch’s immigration status as well. He stated that she entered the United States on a visa waiver, even though all the news claim that she came here on a fiance visa. So, was she a K-1 non-immigrant who adjusted status after the marriage? Or, was she a B-1/B-2 non-immigrant on a visa waiver (and a visa overstay considering the amount of time she was here)?
    No. I guess we’ll just fixate on what Trump said and not what obama does with more Syrian refugees, or gun control, by fiat.

    nadie on December 8, 2015 at 11:29 pm

The banning Muslim immigration to me is an unwinnable situation, I actually thought about and made the argument over the years that: “if Muslims want to be Americans, then they’ll have to take a litmus test”.

Turns out afterwards that I was wrong, were it’s intrinsically a violation of “The Religious Test Clause”, that it’s unconstitutional include his or her faith through any circumstance. I will quote from The Religious Test Clause that’s stated in Article VI, paragraph 3 of:

“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution, but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

In the past in this country, there’s been a ton of stories of Islamic failed terrorist plots that’s been stopped by the government, I think what should happen that if either there’s an unsuccessful terrorists attack or successful terrorists attack conducted by the Muslim populace, then they should be deported out of the country and have their own volitions on what country they want to live in, etc.

Sean R. on December 8, 2015 at 10:29 pm

    Sean, the religious test restriction only applies to officeholders, who must also be citizens.

    skzion on December 11, 2015 at 5:37 am

True as everything Debbie argues, I do believe that symbolic action, a la Trump, is better than no action at all. A Trump presidency likely will set in motion more aggressive actions that really can result in the eventual expulsion of Muslims.

Advice to the wise: Take the long view of history — and the future.

Primetime on December 8, 2015 at 11:02 pm

What is Trump’s stance on Israel? Especially concerning Gaza and Jerusalem and the settlements?

Ronald Taylor on December 8, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    Ronald, Trump recently spoke before the Republican Jewish Coalition’s Presidential Forum. But, as Debbie points out, you must not only read the lines and fine print carefully, but you must read between the lines. Here’s Trump’s presentation:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQYOvDmWqjo

    Ralph Adamo on December 8, 2015 at 11:21 pm

      Ralph Adamo, thank you for the link. I agree you do have to read between the lines when Trump talks about these things. I am a little less worried about his positions on these matters now. Not even though I am an American and a Christian, but BECAUSE I am a Christian American, Israel is the most important issue to me. Genesis 12:2 (G_d to Abraham) And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great and thou shalt be a blessing. (3) And I will bless them that bless thee and curse them that curseth thee: and in thee shall all of the families of the earth be blessed.

      Ronald Taylor on December 10, 2015 at 2:08 am

Dear Debbie Hi and Amen to what you said! Mr trump will never ban Muslims. Mr Trump is a buisnessman! and I would like to see this from Mr Trump He speaks about his love for America which is fantastic! But my comment to Mr Trump is Talk about our second beautiful country that is Israel and her people! ofcourse Dear Debbie i have not made up my mind and i have not decided who will i vote for in 2016!The candidate that i will vote for in 2016 Must talk about President Ronald Reagan that we love and mention that he or she will continue our wonderful President Ronald Reagans Path! Sincerlly Tirdad Gharib!

Uhhh, it’s in the Law!

8 U.S. Code 1182 – Inadmissible aliens

(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.

How can it be un-American when it’s an American law?

Jack on December 9, 2015 at 12:35 am

    Jack–

    Because liberals just don’t give a flying rat’s @$$ about the law.

    They’re too busy making up quotes like “Those who are willing to sacrifice liberty for security will end up with neither.”

    But as for me… Right about now I am siding with the SECURITY group. Liberty ain’t worth $#!+ if I am dead.

    So here’s my reply to that moronic quote… ‘When you take away security from law abiding citizens only the terrorists will have liberty!’ Think about it.

A professor of sociology is lecturing about trends regarding the decline of religion in the world, and is about to conclude before taking questions. “By my calculations, I estimate that religion will virtually disappear from the civilized world by the year 2155,” the professor says. “These may be distressing conclusions for many, but we must be realistic about where things are headed and the consequences of such developments for civilization,” the professor summarizes. “Questions?”

A young man in the back of the lecture hall raises his hand.

The professor acknowledges him. “Yes,” Abdul, “What’s your question?”

“But professor, how can you say that? Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and its adherents represent 25% of the population and even faster growth is being projected in the decades ahead,” Abdul explains.

“Yes, Abdul, that’s true, but I was strictly referring to the civilized world.”

Dennis on December 9, 2015 at 9:42 am

Objectively, I would say its worse than Schlussel portrays. It would seem helpful that Trump has caused Islam itself to come under scrutiny. Trump is clueless as to the nature of Islam, and thus if not intrinsic to his person, he could care less. The first five pages of Google search results regarding “Islam” are all stealth jihad or writings and commentary by useful idiots. The masses are likely to pick the first few results as their sources for understanding Islam. It could be argued then that without additional commentary on Islam at the time of his statement, Trump has done a great disservice. The masses will go “learn about Islam”.

To what degree are people beginning to adequately learn about Islam and then to spread the word or at least be able to provide adequate responses to misconceptions or outright lies in a discussion? To what degree are accurate sources and commentary being referenced or spoken of? And how does that cut across groups by age and demographics? Not well if at all from what I see.

What are the solutions to this problem?

Without an adequate understanding of Islam itself, what you end up with when having plenty of terror attacks will be a pragmatic response to Islam rather than an appropriate response to Islam, which would be a shunning of its followers and call for its outlaw and eradication.

Once decent people understand Islam, then all else will follow.

Phil Lipofsky on December 9, 2015 at 11:50 am

Regardless of any opinion of Mr. Trump I thank him, (who in a way is like you Debbie, unafraid to say what she thinks) for having the bravery at a personal cost, to bring out the cowered silent majority and expose the main media for what they are and the tactics of total destruction to anyone who dares to challenge them.
All the man has done is dare to run for President and put forth ideas for America. By the way, we haven’t heard many ideas for America as this government is full of self-serving political minded people not America minded people. So, I say thanks Mr. Trump for weathering all the hate and vitriol sent your way, thanks for speaking out and not being reduced to ashes as they expect. You may or not be President but you have my respect.

Mona on December 9, 2015 at 1:56 pm

What’s been more interesting than Trump’s statement has been the high voltage reaction to it from Conservatives across the board – politicians to media. If only they were half as fervent about illegal immigration, Obama’s actions against Israel, et al.

Paul Ryan was silent throughout the campaign, but chose to weigh in on this. Lindsay Ghazi, who believes that the US should send Americans to Syria to fight ISIL while welcoming unlimited #Syrian refugees here or tearing down the Statue of Liberty if it wasn’t willing to, called Trump a ‘religious bigot’. Religious? Trump? Trump has been (and probably still is) an agnostic Presbyterian, while Graham has easily been far more religious than him, even though he may have totally crossed over in a McCainian sense.

Krauthammer and Megyn – what’s wrong w/ them? Krauthammer points this one out as bigotry, but then, why is anybody opposing Syrian Muslim refugees coming? The reason given is that there is no way to vet them. Well, in case of Muslims from other places, there is no way to vet them here either. As shown in the case of Syed and Tashfeen. And those who’ve listed countries from which they’re gonna block people have refused to add Pakistan to the list. Never mind that that country is even more fanatically Islamic than Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq.

I’m predicting that b/w now and election day next year, there will be several San Bernardino style attacks, and Trump’s rhetoric will escalate from what it was this week to deporting all Muslims, and by then, there will be no public patience to listen to any of the doubting Thomases on either side worried about a ‘religious test’

Infidel,

I like a guy who doesn’t apologize.

I’m sick and tired of Obama’s constant apologizing for our country.

Trump’s rise in large part is thanks to him.

….if not Trump then who?

Cruz is more compromised then Trump. Rubio would let more in then obuma.

and we in Canada just elected a child a retard to be our prime minister.

we are SCREWED

Hence why I don’t really vote at the national level. My effort makes no difference…. NONE. Why waste time?

I’m not sure why some seem so positive that D.Trump won’t do what he says as regards building a border-wall and a moratorium on Muslim immigration? Initially, many of the same people said that he wouldn’t enter the POTUS race, and then that he wouldn’t release his tax returns and etc…It’s always the ‘Trump-is-a-clown-and-carnival-barker’ meme. Regardless, we conservatives don’t seem to have much of a choice, since the others(except MAYBE, just maybe T.Cruz) are GOPe or GOPe-light.

I very rarely disagree with Debbie, but here I might, in part. Trump might be using his weasel words to give himself some plausible deniability when people say that it’s not Islam that’s the problem. He can say “there’s something there that we don’t understand yet …. So just for now let’s err on the side of safety.” It’s the same thing he did with the illegals who “can come right back if they’re the good ones.”

Of course, one cannot test this until Trump is elected, which is by design.

I do have trouble believing that Trump would allow himself to be dismissed after a single term as a failure by having lots of terrorist attacks and illegals still here.

My view is the San Bernardino jihad shifted the ground in this country.

There’s a feeling Muslims are not living to their part of the bargain for being here by abiding by American values.

If they can’t, they need to be barred from coming here or be forced to leave.

Trump is a flawed and imperfect spokesman for the sentiment most Americans have that we have had one jihad here too many.

And I don’t find his call offensive at all.

And now he’s disrespecting Prime Minister Netanyahu, still, I wonder if the Prime Minister should retire? “Trump cancels trip to Israel after Netanahu denounces proposed Muslim ban.”

Oh and Pam Gellar is gas gaa over Trump, she does not have the insight you do Debbie.

KOAJ: That’s not news. That hideous creep-ette has never had an iota of insight in her life. Scamela Geller is a con artist scammer who made millions paying Muslim straw buyers to buy cars for mobsters and gangsters. A cop investigating her and her one honest employee who was telling on her were both murdered. Her mansion was raided and they seized from there the second (real) set of books she illegally kept there for the business. She really is no different than Muslims and has more murders in her path than most of them do. And, really, she is no different than a mafia boss. That uber-narcissist plastic surgery victim and Slobbert Spencer, her boyfriend, have spent years sending e-mails to various sites, demanding they stop linking to and promoting my work. She’s despicable and has repeatedly plagiarized my work and tried to silence and harm me. Why are you reading and supporting that ugly gold-digger bitch’s site?

Trump refused to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why on earth should Netanyahu meet with him? DS

I may get some flak for bringing this up, but . . . since “Scamela” Geller’s been mentioned here, she’s been complaining about Trump not being for free speech ever since he made critical comments about her Garland, TX “art event” (the one where two police officers [I.I.N.M.] were murdered) that she’s interpreted as being subordinate to Sharia law, and thus in her “educated-in-her-own-mind” opinion this does not qualify him to be President. (Yeah, right – as if his ties to Muslim business interests, his role in Rima Fakih’s Miss Hezbo USA crown, etc., don’t count in the equation. And so much for her being “gas gaa”[sic] over him, in any event.) But since she’s every bit as much the carnival barker that Trump is, if not more so (although how many dead people have there been in Trump’s wake vs. “Scamela’s”? – if she has more as all indicators are, then that would indeed make her more insidious and dangerous than The Donald, confirming the point that “she is no different than a Mafia boss”), in his case it may be more a case of taking one to know one. Or to put it another way, two peas in a pod.
