Has nearly everyone in the American political class lost their minds? Donald Trump is right, mostly.
Is it just me, or is it disgusting to see politicians fall all of themselves to denounce Donald Trump’s proposal “for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on?”
All the chest-beating and self-righteous denunciations of Mr. Trump as “unhinged,” (thanks, Jeb, now go away) and the invocation of various amendments to the Constitution may appeal to the low-information and emotionally-driven, but they have nothing to do with the issue at hand. It’s not complicated. The First and Fourteenth Amendments apply to people under the jurisdiction of the United States. They are NOT about the decision about who to admit into our country.
The primary obligation of the federal government is to protect the safety and security of Americans. End of story. That is a fact that no one can dispute. Consider the following facts:
As we have discussed over and over on The Teri O’Brien Show, our own government has admitted time and again that we cannot effectively screen the “refugees” (watch the video of FBI Director James Comey admit it) that Barack Obama wants to “seed” the country with, for completely cynical political reasons; that is, he wants to “remake” America by changing its demographics, national security be damned.
On the very day that Donald Trump issued his statement, Rep. Michael McCaul, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, reminded us that ISIS has vowed to use the “refugee” program to send Islamic murderers into our country. From The Hill:
Intelligence officials have determined that Islamic extremists have explored using the refugee program to enter the United States, they told the head of the Homeland Security Committee.
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) revealed portions of a classified letter from the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) on Monday, which offered new claims not previously disclosed by the Obama administration.
San Bernardino jihadist bride Tashfeen Malik entered the country after lying on her visa application. The allegedly rigorous vetting process failed, and 14 innocent Americans were murdered one week ago today as a result.
I commend to your attention this MUST READ piece by the terrific Daniel Greenfield, a one-time Teri O’Brien Show guest.
Here’s a little taste.
Behind each massacre, there is a mind. And it is that mind, its ideas and its beliefs, that kills.
San Bernardino is home to what is described as a “growing Muslim population” and that growth comes with terrifying growing pains.
This latest attack appears to be one of them.
It’s a matter of simple math that as the population most likely to commit terrorist acts increases, so do the acts themselves. (emphasis mine)
Two months ago, Marilyn Snyder of the Redlands Tea Party Patriots wrote of “the runners and spectators of the Boston Marathon who never imagined that refugee jihadists were stealthily plotting their demise — just because they were not Muslims.”
Most people in San Bernardino County did not expect that anyone was plotting to kill them. They did not think that one evening the events from far-off France would suddenly be taking place where they lived. And yet that is the new reality.
Islamic terrorism can strike anywhere and everywhere.
Read the whole thing and spread it around.
While I haven’t endorsed him, or any other candidate, and while I certainly don’t agree with everything he says, Donald Trump is a smart guy with a lot of common sense. In this case, he is mostly right. The reason I say “mostly” is that I would be in favor of a complete ban on all immigration for the next ten years. Starting with the people who have demonstrated their willingness to murder innocents as part of their “jihad,” a word that I believe comes from Islam, if I’m not mistaken.
Let me remind you: political correctness kills, and if we don’t put a stop to it, we are committing national suicide.
What say you?
