As you read, keep in mind that the PEW Research estimates the U.S. will have 6.2 MILLION Muslims in the U.S. by 2030. The Federal Census says 100,000 Muslims arrive annually in the U.S., BUT, Federal Data from the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security shows that a quarter of a million (250,000) Muslims come to the U.S. every year –– 250,000! Arabic is the most common language spoken by “refugees” in the U.S., right now, today, AND 91.4 percent of all Muslim “refugees from the Middle East are on food stamps! People! Our government is to blame for exercising no control over who comes in –– including denying Christians suffering real persecution from entering. Trump is not the problem. Our government is the problem (including GOP establishment). When I heard Trump’s statement about keeping Muslim’s out of the country for a while, until we can find a way to keep Americans safe, my immediate thought was –– ‘hey, many of us have been saying the same thing since 9/11/01.’ Since that date, that will live in infamy, the numbers of Muslims brought into the country legally has grown appallingly. One hundred thousand Muslims come here every year. That’s the ones we’re told the government knows about. No other ethnicity is hitting our shores in the numbers allotted to Muslims. So while I recognized immediately that everyone in my circle would agree with Trump (although some of us have another pick for our candidate), I knew we would now see the true colors of the GOP candidates and the GOPe, and indeed we have. Senator Lindsey Graham (a presidential candidate) said that that Donald Trump can “go to hell,” and that he’s the “ISIL Man of the Year.” It doesn’t get much more disgusting than that when Trump clearly wants to find a way to vet who comes into the country, after years of not doing so. Don’t miss the Darth Trump video below.
Every Republican candidate except Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee, took what they saw as an opportunity to behead the man at the head of the polls. Jeb Bush tweeted that Trump is “unhinged,” and is quoted saying he’s “helping his Buddy, Hillary Clinton” gain the White House. I don’t know how many hours Donald Trump has spent with the Bush clan, but I know Hillary and Bill Clinton are welcomed with open arms at the GWH Bush and GW Bush compounds. Barbara Bush says “I love Bill Clinton,” and “he visits us every summer.” and Bill calls Barabara Bush his “other mother.” Laura Bush said she admired Hillary’s “grit and strength.” Another interview of Laura Bush (I read it, can’t find the source) from the Bush Crawford Ranch, Laura states her admiration of Hillary for her work with Afghan women. GW and Bill have become close. Say it isn’t so, but it is so. Where is Jeb in all this? Are we to think he hasn’t spent a fair amount of time with his family’s ‘buddies,’ the Clintons? Jeb has stayed away as the rest of his family feated the Clintons all these years?
Bill and Jeb confab to take down Trump?
“It’s said that Hillary Clinton wants nothing to do with Donald Trump. To most they just call him a clown, but privately they’re afraid of him. The Clinton team doesn’t fear Jeb Bush because they know what they are up against and that lack of fear is mutual among the Bush operation as well. They both run in similar circles politically and financially, so it’s a choice of shades of the same color and that’s how they want to keep it.” . . .
Those concerns were said to be given some salve in the form of assurances from Bill Clinton during a personal call he had with Jeb Bush two days earlier. While most of that conversation remains private, Jeb did share with others that the former president reminded the would-be presidential hopeful that, “a lot of this Trump thing will be taken care of during your debates, if not sooner.” Read more at Gateway Pundit
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan issued a statement about Trump, beginning with the fact that the Speaker doesn’t usually comment on GOP presidential candidates, but Trump called for an “exception.” He said when the House called for a “pause,” he made it clear that the “pause” wasn’t about a religious test. Trump also didn’t call for a religious test, but never mind the facts. Never mind that Islam is a political ideology run by totalitarian dictatorships, or if you have a problem with that, Islam is a theocracy that rules through political ideology. Keeping Muslims out of the United States (for a while) is “not what this country stands for.” Donald Trump has NEVER advocated for a religious group not being allowed free worship.
Paul Ryan: “This is not conservatism what was proposed yesterday, is not what this party stands for and more importantly it’s not what this country stands for, . . .”
Lindsey Graham (Member of the Senate Gang of Eight): “Tell Donald Trump to go to hell.” “He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot,” He doesn’t represent my party. He doesn’t represents the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for . . . He’s the ISIL man of the year.”
Jeb Bush: “Donald Trump is unhinged. His “policy” proposals are not serious.” “He’s helping his buddy, Hillary Clinton.”
Carly Fiorina: “Trump’s overreaction is as dangerous as President Obama’s under-reaction, . . .” More from Fiorina: “It’s a violation of our Constitution, but it also undermines the character of our nation, . . .”
Chris Christie: “. . . ridiculous” utterance of a man whose reality has been shaped by his years starring in the reality TV show “The Apprentice.” . . . “no question” that Trump’s idea was unconstitutional, but added that “there are folks in this race who don’t care about what the law says because they’re used to being able to just fire people indiscriminately on television.” More from Christie: “This is the kind of think that people say when they have no experience and don’t know what they’re talking about.”
Marco Rubio (Member of the Senate Gang of Eight): “It violates the Constitution. It places a religious test. And it isn’t the best way to do this,”
John Kasich: to ban most Muslims from the U.S. would weaken us, and “doesn’t represent who we are.” “This is not what leads to a strong America.” More from Kasich: This is just more of the outrageous divisiveness that characterises his every breath and another reason why he is entirely unsuited to lead the United States,” said another Republican candidate, John Kasich, Ohio governor.
Ben Carson: “It’s just not who we are . . . We are not a people who react in a fearful way. You know, when you talk about prejudice, prejudice is usually born out of fear and ignorance. That’s not who we are. . . . We do not discriminate on people based on religion — that’s constitutional, that’s in the First Amendment, so we would never want to do that.”
Rick Santorum: To Donald Trump’s call for banning all Muslims from entering the country insists he has “a more practical way than the way Donald Trump is suggesting” to ban not all Muslims, “but a lot of them.”
For all those insisting that halting Muslims coming into this country, especially in light of the Syrian Muslim refugees (only a tiny fraction of those Christians trying to escape real persecution) Obama plans to bring in, there is information today on why IT IS NOT UNCONSTITUTIONAL to keep those out who might pose a threat to the safety of the country.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who blatantly lied (three times like the Apostle Peter): such a ban would be “completely inconsistent with American values.” McConnell is one of the most unprincipled men in Congress.
GOP Chairman Reince Priebus: “We need to aggressively take on radical Islamic terrorism but not at the expense of our American values,”
Amazing, isn’t it, that fourteen years after 9/11/01, the leader of the Republican Party finally comes to the conclusion that “We need to aggressively take on radical Islamic terrorism . . . ” Millions of us ‘got it’ immediately and have sat by, helplessly, because those in power are deaf to conservatism.
And for those arguing that Muslims like King Abdullah could not enter the U.S. under a ban, is ridiculous. To the leadership, you are talking down to us, and we hear you, and we won’t forget.
