At a campaign rally in Las Vegas yesterday, GOP presidential frontrunner and aspiring “good guy with a gun” Donald Trump said that if he lived in Paris, he would’ve been able to shoot the terrorists who murdered scores of people in cafes and a concert hall last month, thus averting the attack.
“If a few of those people that are now dead, if a few of those people had guns strapped to their ankles or strapped to their waists, you wouldn’t have the problem, right?” Trump said. “If I were there, I’m licensed to carry, I will tell you this, if I were there, if somebody were there, if we had some firepower in the opposite direction, those people would’ve been gone.”
The rally also featured the manhandling of demonstrators, which has now become a regular occurrence at Trump events.

Sen. Ted Cruz submitted a video address to conservative activist Frank Gaffney's “Nevada National Security Action Summit” last night, in which he put his own spin on the event’stheme of claiming that President Obama doesn’t care about America’s national security and threw in a casual lie about a nonexistent Obama administration "ban" on "rhetoric against radical Islamic terrorists."
He then went on to casually lie about recent remarks that Attorney General Loretta Lynch made about anti-Muslim hate speech. Lynch told a Muslim group that the Justice Department would “take action” when it sees anti-Muslim rhetoric that “edges towards violence,” later clarifying that “of course, we prosecute deeds and not words.”
According to Cruz, however, Lynch has now imposed a “ban on anti-Muslim rhetoric, what she considers rhetoric against radical Islamic terrorists” which is being used to force Americans to “submit” to the Obama administration and is having a “chilling effect” on people reporting suspicious activities, including the neighbors of the San Bernardino shooters. Of course, these neighbors were probably not silenced by comments that the attorney general made after the shooting.
Cruz started out his comments by praising Gaffney, saying that the activist “is a patriot, he loves this country, and he is clear-eyed about the incredible threat of radical Islamic terrorism.”
This, Cruz said, was in contrast to President Obama, who has left the issue of terrorism “festering unattended” because preventing terrorism is “peripheral at best to his core progressive agenda, an agenda that appeases our enemies before actually defending the national security interests of our great country.”
The proximity of presidential candidates did not cause Root to hold back on his rhetoric, telling the audience at Gaffney’s forum that Hillary Clinton has committed “a hanging, treasonous offense” involving foreign donors to the Clinton Foundation but is getting off the hook by blackmailing FBI Director James Comey and other Republicans in Washington.
“Can you imagine a Republican secretary of state working for a Republican president starting a foundation for charity that collects money from foreign governments by the hundreds of millions and billions and then takes the money and hands out government contracts to the same country that made the contribution from the State Department?” he asked. “That’s not a criminal offense, that’s a hanging, treasonous offense.”
When a member of the audience asked Root “when we are going to nail Hillary,” Root responded that he wasn’t sure because “I don’t know if Comey, the FBI director, is totally on the straight-and-narrow.”
“I believe we’ve got massive blackmail going on in the United States government,” he said. “The NSA, the IRS, their goal is to find out everything about Republicans — not everybody, Republicans.”
“They want to know everything about us, especially Republican politicians in Washington, D.C., and then they blackmail them,” he explained. “Is Comey susceptible to that? I have no idea, but I certainly have my suspicions about the Supreme Court justice of the United States voting twice for Obamacare.”
Despite the fact that he's constantly saying the television is a dying medium, Glenn Beck is overjoyed that his network will now be carried by Verizon FIOS.
Jack Cashill says that "the White House and Muslim activists share few values, but they do share an enemy – traditional Judeo-Christian civilization. Anything they can do to undermine that civilization – making common sense a hate crime, for instance – they will do."
Finally, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is pretty sure that it was his prayers and activism that got Kim Davis released from jail.
Wayne Allyn Root, a Nevada activist and the 2008 Libertarian nominee for vice president, comes across as something like the poor man’s Donald Trump. Like Trump, Root is loud, bombastic and full of barely thought-through conspiracy theories about President Obama. The two also know each other: Trump wrote a blurb for Root’s most recent book and Root volunteered to be Trump’s “Karl Rove” if he’s elected president.
Root boasted of his role in the Trump rally during a rambling speech at a summit hosted by Frank Gaffney today that at least three GOP candidates are scheduled to attend.
Here is a brief introduction to some of Root’s favorite conspiracy theories, which we can only imagine he will touch upon at tonight’s rally:
1. Obama Both Did And Did Not Attend Columbia
Root’s signatureconspiracy theory has to do with Obama’s time at Columbia University, which Root says is where Obama learned his strategy to impose socialist control on the U.S. even though, according to Root, he was never seen in classes and probably is lying about going to Columbia at all.
2. Obama ‘Cut His Afro’ To Become The ‘Manchurian Candidate’
Root put a new spin on his Obama theory during a 2014 campaign stop for Mississippi Senate candidate Chris McDaniel, when he said that Obama’s Columbia classes (which he both did and did not attend) taught him to “cut his afro” in order to infiltrate the political class and become a “Manchurian candidate” meant to take down America from within.
4. Obama Wants A Race War So He Can Impose Martial Law
Like many conservative commentators, Root contends that America’s troubles with race were in the past until Obama came along to divide everyone, saying that the president “didn’t come in to help us end the specter of racism, he brought it back.”
Root wrote during the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, that “Obama needs ‘division.’ Race warfare. Class warfare. Anger. Resentment. Civil war.” Obama, he wrote, saw Ferguson as “the perfect opportunity to divide the nation, to incite unrest and violence across America” and could “use spreading unrest to declare martial law.”
5. Democrats Win By Voting 10 Times Each
Root has taken voter fraud hysteria to a new level, claiming last year that President Obama won reelection because “Democratic voters across this country are voting four times, five times, 10 times each for the Democrats.”
Personhood USA cofounder Cal Zastrow joined Tennessee state Rep. Mark Pody at an event in Nashville recently in support of efforts to pass legislation that would nullify the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision in the state, warning that failure to do so would result in people eventually being rounded up by the "sodomite police."
Zastrow warned that the "sodomites" and the "perverts" would oppose the legislation on the grounds that it would just be a waste of time and money, since the law is obviously unconstitutional and will simply be struck down, but such criticism should be ignored because this law is the only way "to stop perverted marriage."
"Years from now, do you want to get the phone call," Zastrow asked, "from your kids or your grand kids saying, 'Mom, Dad, the sodomite police or the population police just came and took my husband away. Dad, Mom, why didn't you fight evil when you could?'"
Some of the biggest applause lines at today’s “Nevada National Security Action Summit,” hosted by the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney, have been comments accusing President Obama of being a secret Muslim and deliberately trying to bring down the country.
John Bolton, an ambassador to the United Nations during the Bush administration who has since become a conservative activist, offered more of the same in his address to the summit, which will also feature at least three Republican presidential candidates.
“The fact is, Barack Obama does not view American national security as one of his priorities,” Bolton said. “It gets in the way of what his real priority is, and he told us very candidly in the 2008 election, it was to fundamentally transform the country. And national security just distracts from that.”
He told the crowd that Obama’s supposed indifference to national security shows that it must be the first priority for electing a next president.
“And I think that you can see the risks that we’ve undertaken over the last seven and soon to be eight years by electing somebody who’s utterly unqualified to think through foreign policy issues, who simply doesn’t care about them,” he said. “The net effect of Barack Obama’s presidency will show that the biggest threat to national security we have is sitting in the Oval Office, because he’s indifferent to national security.”
In an interview with conservative Wisconsin talk radio host Vicki McKenna last week, Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) spokesman Ira Mehlman, warned that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s acceptance of Syrian refugees would endanger the U.S.
McKenna lamented that the United States is doing “nothing to secure our borders” and described our border with Mexico as the “porous as they come,” stating that it is a “conduit point for people from Middle Eastern countries.” Our border with Canada, McKenna said, is just as insecure. Mehlman agreed, adding that Trudeau has agreed to continue taking in refugees from what McKenna referred to as “known terrorist countries.”
“If you think our southern border is not secure, our northern border is not secure at all,” Mehlman said. “We haven’t had the need before now, but I guess if the new prime minister up there in Canada has his way, you might start seeing people in Wisconsin coming across.”
Conservative activist Jesse Lee Peterson is coming to the defense of Donald Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the country, writing in WorldNetDaily over the weekend that only “traitors” like President Obama disagree with Trump’s plan.
Peterson laments that just seven years after the 9/11 attacks, Americans elected “a man with a Muslim name and sympathies” who “sides with the enemy.”
“Knowing the administration’s desire to overrun us with Muslims, Trump’s position makes a whole lot of sense,” he writes … unless, of course, you’re a traitor.
For many American citizens, the murder of nearly 3,000 of our own on 9/11 by Muslim fanatics was a wake-up call. The naïve way many of us had viewed the world melted under shattering reality in the space of one chilling morning.
Unfortunately, after the immediate shock passed, most went back to sleep and stayed asleep. Just seven years later, a man with a Muslim name and sympathies, Barack Hussein Obama, was elected president, and four years later, was re-elected. Now after Paris and San Bernardino, it couldn’t be clearer that he sides with the enemy. God help us.
Paris and San Bernardino brought some of the post-9-11 reality back to us – that Muslims represent a clear and present danger. It was another wake-up call for some, and for others, another opportunity to deny their country’s need for self-preservation by siding with the enemy.
The deniers are cowards – and traitors.
After San Bernardino, Americans rejected Barack Hussein Obama’s call for gun control and massive Muslim immigration. The people instead clamored for Muslim control.
In this environment, one man, Donald Trump, dared to voice what was on the minds of millions of Americans, and called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S., until we can get a grip on our nation’s security. Knowing the administration’s desire to overrun us with Muslims, Trump’s position makes a whole lot of sense.
Unless you’re a Quran-believing Muslim, liberal or RINO Republican.
This all points to the insanity of today’s world, where Muslim savages follow a seventh-century madman who grew up without his father, and waged bloody jihad against Jews, Christians and other “infidels.” And yet, almost all of our leaders – instead of standing against the atrocities committed by members of the “religion of peace” – are actually supporting their reign of terror by doing nothing to stop it. Worse, they’re actively working against the few who – like Donald Trump – are standing up for the American people.
