Inelegant, but not inaccurate

I dislike Donald Trump, but I am starting to really hate the media. This morning on the Today show NBC News reporter Kristen Welker spoke of Donald Trump and his plan:

“banning Muslims from entering the US”

she said.

Over at the New Republic Brian Beutler adds

Trump’s plan to prohibit Muslim immigration into the U.S. is indeed extreme,

ABC News:

There’s no legal or historical precedent for closing U.S. borders to the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims,

CBS News

“total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”

What did Trump say?

“total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

In other words, a temporary halt.

A poll was conducted by NBC News/ Wall St Journal. The findings?

Donald Trump’s proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S. is opposed by a solid majority of Americans, while almost four in 10 Republican primary voters support the idea, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

But let’s look at the question from the poll:

Should Muslims Be Barred From Entering the U.S.?

There’s nothing about it being a temporary ban. There’s nothing about him saying “until we figure it out.”

The low information voter has swallowed the low information liberal media meme entirely:

Several people, however, were at the forum today that are fiercely against Trump. Several yelled out during the town hall and were escorted out of the building by police.

Jabril Hough, from the Islamic Center of Charlotte, said he was appalled to hear the remarks from Trump about Muslims. He was one of the protesters escorted out of the town hall.

“To say you’re going to ban Muslims and make a whole race, a whole religion of people pay for the crimes of two or three or four or five..It doesn’t make sense,” Hough said.

(emphasis added)

Jimmy Carter barred Iranians from entering the US. Politifact parses the difference between nationality and religion, as though any meaningful percentage entering the country from Iran would be something other than Muslim.

Trump spoke inelegantly. The threat to the US comes from ISIS or potential ISIS inspired individuals and none of them are going to be anything other than Muslim. To assuage the politically correct Trump should have spoken of a halt either to all immigration or halting immigration from all Middle Eastern countries as Rand Paul has suggested. This would fall in line with Jimmy Carter’s actions but given that it came from Trump there is little doubt the left would have objected to something about it.

Putting the brakes on immigration from the Middle East is wise. Tashfeen Malik proved that system is faulty- fatally faulty. Malik passed three– count ’em, three – background checks. How many more Americans have to die for Barack Obama’s sanctimonious self-righteousness? It’s very odd that an administration which has made extensive use of social media would fail to consider social media in background checks.

One after another liberal has assured us that we can properly vet these refugees.

We can’t. There are fourteen dead who can testify to it. Until we do it is a good idea to slow things down. I would wager big that if the question in the poll was

“In light of the 14 dead in San Bernardino at the hands of a Muslim woman who passed a DHS screening procedure would you consider it wise to halt immigration from the Middle East until we can assure the American people those who are admitted are not a threat?”

that the results would be significantly different from what we’ve been told so far.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    But they had a week to work themselves into a lather only to discover it had been done before by progressives no less, but no time to correct themselves, Rant on mindlessly to the clueless.

    DrJ., I know you “dislike” this guy and I know that his public image and particularly his mouth are often hard to like, however, I point out that in this age of lackey politicians being mastered by faceless bankers sending the Nation over the abyss, Trump is the only guy out of the whole gang running for the Presidency, from either side of the ideological divide, who isn’t owned.

    Cruz seems willing to swim against the pliant current of the GOP, but he seems to not understand the economy, national or international. Cruz supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership which indicated a serious lack of discernment. Carson is smart and has some good ideas, plus he’s refreshing, but he is faltering.

    Most jobs being created now are part time jobs. That will not rebuild the country nor enable it to ever repay its mounting debt.

    After a completely destructive Administration doing its best to demolish the country for 8 years, the rebuilding job may be impossible for the next President, but there’s a need for someone with a track record beyond community organizing. Still, it’s tough to accept that Trump is the only one who can tell the senior banker where to get off, including The Fed.

But Still – TRUMP is FINISHED!

    Sarasota Florida, Trump had to give two speeches today. The venue was for 5000 people and 12 to 15 THOUSAND people showed. So Trump gave two speeches. Obviously this is just another symptom of Trump’s failing campaign. He’s FINISHED.

He’s Finished.

    * The Fact that Trump is drawing crowds in the thousands and tens of thousand, is the most obvious sign that he is FINISHED! It is just a matter of time.

    *Besides, Jeb Bush assured us that Trump would be sinking before the NEXT Debate in mid-December! He’ll be finished or at least on his way out by then.

    * Oh but we have five days to turn this thing around, so that Jeb Bush doesn’t look like a total buffoon! – of course Trump is finished! These polls and huge crowds, that is just smoke and mirrors, all in your mind. Go Back to sleep! Trump is Finished, Trump is Finished, Trump is Finished!

    Since Trump began to rise in the pools we have found out that virtually every espoused position of the “conservative media” was a total ruse. The Salem Media group primarily among them.
    Red State (Eric Erickson) now finds himself proclaiming that Jeb Bush is the most conservative governor he’s ever known. Web sites like Twitchy, Hot Air, Human Events, Michelle Malkin and National Review suddenly singing the praises of a Jeb Bush they formerly said was just another GOP establishment sell out.

    Jeb goes from RINO villain to GOP hero faster than you can say Donald Trump.

    “Conservative” punditry like George Will, Charles Krauthammer, Stephen Hayes, Charles Lane, Rich Lowry, Jonah Goldberg and many more opining on all media a previously hidden “open borders” position. All of a sudden they are telling us walls will never work, illegal aliens are the bedrock of the U.S. social fabric and it’s profoundly unfair to even contemplate their deportation. Oh, the humanity.
    That’s a serious dose of sunlight upon a previously hidden agenda. *BTW even Breitbart has reported false stories about Trump.
    Wow, what a ride!

    Speaking of Breitbart, did you know this?
    NOTICE: Andrew Breitbart is not channeling from the grave. He has been DEAD for four years, and a world of disclosures and events have happened since then.

    Anything that Andrew Breitbart has to say, was in a context of 20 percent of the knowledge we hold four years later.

    Those people who paid his WIDOW for the rights to his brand name and the name Breitbart Dot Com – are NOW the mind behind the name.

    Who is that mind, who is NOW behind the Breitbart Brand Name? He is the Open Borders, Globalist, Hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer.

    When you see the name Breitbart, you MUST erase from your mind Andrew, who was our hero, who we all loved, and replace it with the image of this man. This Open Borders, Globalist, Hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer, who OWNS Ted Cruz.

    I repeat, “starting”???

  4. 9


    Had to go out and read about this evil Mercer guy rich guy gives loads to conservative campaigns and causes, likes his private life. Why are conservative donors so much more evil than liberal donors? Could not find where he was stomping on puppies or anything.

    @MM:You’ve earned honors as FA’S #1 Trumpist.

    What happens when Rush endorses Cruz? What will ditto-heads do? Rush was a God when The Donald was a Dem. He still is.

    I repeat, “starting”???

    Fantastic post and reply to ‘Rip Van Winkle’. I’ve personally despised the media since the early 1960’s. They have been controlled by, and working for, the NWO Internationalist cabal ever since they successfully debunked McCarthy – the sky was the limit after that.

  7. 13


    Thank you Budvarakbar-I was a little later then you coming to the party-it was later then the 60s for me to see the damage the media has done and continues to do. It wasn’t until I really started paying attention in the mid 70s that it started to click. They’re, for the most part, despicable.

    Now? They don’t even bother trying to hide it.

    Rich Wheeler

    @MM: MM Budvarakar et all I truly do not understand why ANY true Conservative would NOT support Cruz over Trump.
    The media has changed since the 60’s/70’s—Fox did not exist–there was no internet- The overall playing field has been levelled.

  9. 15


    @MM: I dare say what a list, bravo!

    I have not watched cable in months. Oh, maybe a snipit here or there because I happen to see what someone else is watching…I don’t go out of my way though. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth, has for too long. Long time Fox viewers have even turned on them.

    I still have a button from a Tea Party Event: “Don’t Trust the Liberal Media”… Today, it should really say: “The Media Lies. Period.”…or any number of phrases…

    Surprisingly, I had a confessed liberal tell me recently they would be voting for Trump. I only hope there are more like this person, a reformed liberal turned individual thinker perhaps? …who got a mega dose of reality after the last 7 years…I don’t know, but, one can only hope.

    @FAITH7: Don’t get your hopes up. I dont know a single Dem. who supports Trump–not to say they all support HRC either–I believe many would support a Rubio/Kasich ticket a lethal Electoral College combo.

    Trump, not really a big fan of The Constitution, suggested today he might ask his buddy Putin to be his Veep. He said he’d switch slogans to “Make Tyranny Great Again.” ” I love this guy and he loves me ” Trump shouted to his adoring lemmings.

  11. 17


    Cruz has many negatives-the fact you refuse to see them says it all. I’m not going to relist any of them as I may as well be speaking to the wall.

    That being said, if Trump loses and that’s looks less and less likely every day, I would vote for Cruz.

    Are you going to sit it out when Trump is our nominee?

  12. 18


    Thank you FAITH7-I saw it at and thought it was worthwhile to share.

    I cut the cable in the early 90s-for the most part, it’s a sewer.

  13. 19


    @Rich Wheeler:
    Mr. Rich maybe YOU don’t know a single Dem who would vote for Trump, that does not mean they are not out there….

    Trump is, as you may know by now, resonating with people because he speaks to people not at them. He doesn’t use a teleprompter and says what desperately needs to be said, ignoring PC…he is actually changing the whole ‘conversation’.

    Unlike Obama who just drones on with boring pre-written words (just words). I watched him speak from his teleprompter…he is so…robotic…he likes only the whole aspect of his self importance as president, but, the job itself…um, no, not really…he has proven that beyond belief. This is abundantly clear to anyone who is paying attention, and can be honest.

    Americans are tired of being lied to and, thanks to so many sources at hand these days, the liars we have on both sides can easily be brought out into the light of day. It’s really astonishing.

    Americans are also tired of being talked down to, and being blamed for their common sense, their ability to see the
    8,000 lb Elephant in the room. Their ability to face problems head on and want to solve them with common sense solutions.

    I thought Herman Cain would have been good for our country…he was a businessman too…except he wasn’t able to handle the media and the PC as well as Trump does, which was ashame. Try as they may to bring him down, the media only makes Trump surge.

    @FAITH7: As a fellow New Yorker and just one year older I’ve watched Trump’s act for close to 40 years–from Indie to Dem to Repub his shtick remains the same—a classic Godless bully. This is at least the third time he’s run—never garnering more than laughs.
    How can a true Conservative not support Cruz over this carnival act–The Donald? Cruz will win in Iowa and Trump will begin to attack him–that’s when the real contest will begin—I got Trump finishing behind Cruz and Rubio.

  15. 21


    @Rich Wheeler:
    Mr Rich, try as they might, as disgusting as our media is, they cannot find one person who worked for, or with Donald Trump who has a negative story or comment about him…

    You say he is a bully, who has he bullied on his campaign….loud mouthed activists? He hits back at those who disparage him, twice as hard too.

    Hell look at Paul Ryan…Mr “Conservative” on the Romney Campaign trail another dam liar…
    He’s bought and paid for…he’s another establishment jerk.

    I’m going to take a chance on a ‘non-lawyer’ businessman…a success in his OWN right…not bought, not paid for…I think his heart is in the right place…with the American People…

    People can change in 40 years…and for the better…besides, I’ve had my fill of negativity for 7 years…

    @MM: I already tried to get a bet down with RT—-Basically Cruz vs Trump straight up for Presidency–not nom—no blood if there is another winner 100 bucks —Curt can hold.
    Shorter term I’ll take Cruz over Trump in Iowa–$100 STRAIGHT UP

    Good luck with that — these polls predicting Cruz in Iowa were of only 400 repube – probably all gopE precinct higher-ups and chairmen. When you see a national (or multistate regional) poll with Cruz winning and covering a much wider ‘sample’ – you may be right!

    ” I already tried to get a bet down with RT”

    I don’t know what that means.

    If you’re proposing Cruz v Trump for winning the presidency-you’re on for a $100. You have Cruz and I have Trump, right?

    Where do I send it? Let’s make it postal orders, mmmK?

    I am right now taking my hard drive out of my computer to send it to my IT guy in Denver to download my info onto a new computer. So I will be offline until probably Thurs.
