Ledger, wondering if the former secretary of state has brain damage or has suffered seizures, pointed to Clinton’s appearance last year before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, where she laughed at a question about whether she had spent the night of the 2012 attack alone. (The attack had ended earlier in the day.)
“Certainly, inappropriate laughter, and it’s prolonged, that can be a sign of traumatic brain injury or other neurologic problems,” Orient said.
In an interview with a right-wing television network today, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump warned that America may not survive "being attacked" by “bad hombres and bad dudes” coming into the country through the southern border.
One America News Network pundit Graham Ledger asked Trump whether he would use his “bully pulpit” as the leader in presidential primary polls to address “this attack that’s coming to us every day from illegal immigrants and what we have to do to secure our sovereignty down at the border.”
“You use the word ‘attack,’ and it is an attack, we’re being attacked,” Trump agreed, citing two cases of American citizens being killed by undocumented immigrants that have received a lot of attention from conservative media.
“You look at beautiful Kate [Steinle] and what’s going on like in San Francisco and Jamiel [Shaw] and so many people being killed and hurt badly. And people are coming through the border that are really bad hombres and bad dudes and these are people that Mexico doesn’t want and other countries where they come from, they don’t want them.”
Other countries, he said, are “forcing” these “bad hombres” into America, where they will either go to jail or “go around killing people in our streets.”
“Another four years, another eight years of this kind of stuff, and we’re not going to have a country anymore,” he added.
Trump told Ledger that running for president was “not anything that I wanted to do” but that he couldn’t stand by as “the Constitution of this country has been absolutely riddled with bullets from the Obama administration.”
Ledger, for one, was very impressed by Trump’s self-sacrifice, declaring that the billionaire was doing his “duty” in following his “calling” to run for president, just like the men who enlisted in the military in World War I and World War II.
In an interview with One American News Network’s Rick Amato last week, right-wing activist and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza claimed that liberals are “teaching our young people to hate America” by including lessons on slavery, colonization and the Civil Rights Movement in school curricula.
D’Souza, who’s promoting his new movie “America: Imagine The World Without Her,” told Amato that a “generation of spoiled, overfed, affluent young people who turned bitterly against the Vietnam War” later “basically rewrote American history to make America the bad guy in all circumstances” by teaching schoolchildren about things such as the founding fathers owning slaves and Christopher Columbus’ exploitation of the native population.
“In a sense, we’re teaching our young people to hate America,” he said.
He added that this was part of a plot by leftist radicals who have figured out that “you don’t need to be a radical by blowing up a bridge” and that you can write textbooks instead.
Many in the anti-immigrant movement felt slighted by this year’s CPAC, which they claimed did not devote enough time to their cause. Center for Immigration Studies director Mark Krikorian lamented to the Washington Post that the American Conservative Union “pushed out” groups like his from the event; while others, including Phyllis Schlafly, Rep. Steve King, and Frank Gaffney held their own alternative event across the street.
But they needn’t have worried. Even if the ACU was trying to appear more moderate on the issue of immigration – chiefly by hosting a panel featuring conservative immigration reform advocates – anti-immigrant rhetoric was still plentiful at the event. After all, CPAC welcomed the sponsorship of ProEnglish, an anti-immigrant “English only” group run by a white nationalist, even while refusing to include groups representing LGBT and atheist conservatives.
