Rick Santorum Has A 'More Practical Way' Than Trump To Ban 'A Lot Of' Muslims

Rick Santorum reacted today to Donald Trump’s call for banning all Muslims from entering the country by insisting that he has “a more practical way than the way Donald Trump is suggesting” to ban not all Muslims, “but a lot of them.”

Santorum told Stephen Bannon on the SiriusXM program “Breitbart News Daily” this morning that he has “proposed actual concrete things in our immigration law that would have not the effect of banning all Muslims, but a lot of them.”

“We start changing our immigration laws, we can deal with this problem,” he said. “I think the way Trump has proposed it, it may have some constitutional infirmity. We can do it in a more practical way than the way that Donald Trump is suggesting.”

Santorum also told Bannon that while he is considered an “enemy of ISIS,” the terrorist group doesn’t “call President Obama an enemy” because he “creates the false narrative which allows ISIS to survive.”

“The reason they called me an enemy was because I identified them accurately and said why they had to be defeated, just like I explained to you,” he said. “To them, that made me an enemy, because I was someone out there telling the truth which will, if the American public and the West would believe it, would lead to the destruction of ISIS. They don’t call President Obama an enemy because President Obama creates the obfuscation, creates the false narrative which allows ISIS to survive.”

“They’re very happy that the president’s out there trying to convince the Muslim world that they’re illegitimate,” he added.

Santorum told Newsmax TV yesterday that ISIS in fact sees Obama “as an ally.” ISIS, however, does not seem to agree with this view.

Trump Campaign Cites Japanese Internment Camps To Defend Muslim Immigration Ban

A New Hampshire Republican lawmaker who co-chairs Donald Trump’s campaign in the first-in-the-nation primary state came out in defense of the candidate’s proposed ban on Muslim immigration by citing the internment of Japanese-Americans in World War II.

The lawmaker, Al Baldasaro, also said the chairwoman of the state’s Republican Party should resign for criticizing Trump’s remarks, reported WMUR:

State Republican Party chairwoman Jennifer Horn said Monday that Donald Trump’s call for a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims entering the United States is “un-American.”

But two top Trump supporters in New Hampshire said the controversial Republican presidential frontrunner is right.

State Reps. Al Baldasaro of Londonderry and Steve Stepanek of Amherst said Horn should resign her post for criticizing Trump because she is not being neutral in the presidential primary.



But Baldasaro, a co-chair of Trump’s state veterans coalition, said Trump is “100 percent right” and Horn is wrong.

“What he’s saying is no different than the situation during World War II, when we put the Japanese in camps,” Baldasaro, a Marine veteran, said. “The people who attacked innocent people in Paris came through open borders. From a military mind standpoint, all Donald Trump is saying is to do what needs to be done until we get a handle on how to do background checks.”

Baldasaro said a petition is being circulated among some New Hampshire Republicans to convene a special Republican State Committee meeting to call on Horn to resign or to try to remove her from office. He said he signed a such a petition on Monday night.

“She needs to resign because she has no clue,” Baldasaro said. “She’s my friend, but I have to separate that from the Republican Party.”

Trump himself said that he wouldn’t have ruled out supporting internment camps for Japanese-Americans had he been around at the time:

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump told TIME that he does not know whether he would have supported or opposed the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

“I would have had to be there at the time to tell you, to give you a proper answer,” he said during a recent interview in his office in New York City. “I certainly hate the concept of it. But I would have had to be there at the time to give you a proper answer.”

Trump added that he believes wartime sometimes requires difficult choices. “It’s a tough thing. It’s tough,” he said. “But you know war is tough. And winning is tough. We don’t win anymore. We don’t win wars anymore. We don’t win wars anymore. We’re not a strong country anymore. We’re just so off.”

Pressed numerous times during an appearance Monday morning on MSNBC to say whether or not the internment violated American values, Trump refused to respond.

Cliff Kincaid: Obama Is 'Mentally Ill' Due To Past Pot Use And Must Be Impeached

Accuracy in Media's Cliff Kincaid is calling upon Congress to impeach President Obama and remove him from office on the grounds that he is currently mentally incompetent due to excessive use of marijuana when he was younger.

In a piece logically titled "Is Our Stoner President Mentally Impaired?," Kincaid asserts that Congress must begin the process of "removing Obama from office because of cognitive impairment" as "he is so affected by previous drug use that he is just not capable of comprehending reality": 

Obama is, presumably, not smoking marijuana in the White House. But he talks and acts as if he is still under the influence. Indeed, the long-term impact of the weed on his intellectual processes is a subject of concern. David Maraniss, author of a book on Obama, notes that the word “choom,” taken from “Choom Gang,” means to smoke marijuana. He said Obama “started a few pot-smoking trends,” suggesting the future president understood ways to make the “high” from the drug even more powerful and lasting. One method they used was to smoke dope in a car and then inhale or suck in what was left of the smoke in the ceiling of the car.

What Maraniss leaves out of his book on Obama is the role played by Obama’s mentor, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis, another dope smoker who probably gave the young Barry some tips on inhaling the drug for full effect. Davis, a pedophile, probably also taught young Barry about experimenting with sex.

It is worth recalling that when he ran for office, Obama refused to release his complete medical records. Instead, a sympathetic doctor merely released a 276-word “summary,” claiming he was in excellent health.

...

If Congress doesn’t want to find Obama guilty of having an ideology that explains his sympathy for radical Islam and disqualifies his continued service as President, the only alternative is to diagnose his medical condition with public hearings and conclude that he has lost touch with reality and is mentally ill. A Congressional Research Service study cites evidence that section four of the 25th amendment is designed for “a sick president who refuses or is unable to confront his disability,” or “a president who is disabled but unwilling to step aside.”

This section is complicated, but it explicitly allows for Congress to establish a committee or another body to review the president’s disability and recommend his removal from office. It refers to several ways the president can be removed, including through a body “as Congress may by law provide.” This would begin the process of congressional action.

The main objection will be that using Obama’s dope-smoking days against him is going back too far in his life to justify his removal from office. But many observers see that something is seriously wrong with this President’s approach to his job. Blaming his performance on the lingering effects of the heavy use of illegal drugs makes as much sense as any other explanation at this point.

Indeed, with impeachment on ideological grounds off the table, it is within the jurisdiction of Congress to decide that Obama has done enough damage to the nation and the world and that he must go. Since Obama seems to be AWOL in the War on Terror, dereliction of duty by Congress in this case would only increase the danger and risk to the nation.

Right Wing Round-Up - 12/7/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/7/15

  • The Republican National Committee, the party of the administration that was in charge on 9/11, declares that "President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Democrat Party as a whole cannot be trusted to keep America safe from radical Islamic terrorists."
  • Dr. Steve Parson of Virginia, one of the African American pastors who endorsed Donald Trump last week, says that "my spirit bore witness with his spirit" and discovered that "inwardly, he’s a very humble person."
  • Mike Huckabee has designed December 11 as "A Day to Pray."
  • Matt Barber insists that Planned Parenthood shooter Robert Dear is not a Christian: "He is, much like Planned Parenthood, 'pro-death.' Peas in a pod."
  • Finally, Tom Tancredo wants the government to help people purchase guns: "To show we are serious about empowering 100 million citizens for self-defense, we should seriously consider subsidizing the purchase of firearms by low-income citizens. Terrorists and criminals already know how to obtain guns, so why not help the defenseless? If we can afford food stamps and housing subsidies, why not gun stamps to help urban citizens survive the next Islamist assault?"

San Bernardino Truthers Blame Obama Conspiracy: 'We Do Not Have One Year Left To Live Out This Administration'

Conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones doubled down today on his claim that the San Bernardino shooting was a false flag attack, speaking with fellow conspiracy theorist Steve Pieczenik about why they believe the tragedy was an Obama administration plot to push gun control.

Pieczenik said it was “absolutely impossible” for shooter Tashfeen Malik to have carried out the attack, claiming that the attack, like the Sandy Hook school shooting, was staged in order to advance “gun control for Obama.”

“His last wish and dying wish, may well be dying wish, is that we have gun control in the United States,” Pieczenik said of President Obama, accusing the president of committing “criminal acts against the United States.”

He continued: “We do not have one year left to live out this administration.”

Pieczenik went on to say that the shooting was designed to deflect attention from the controversy surrounding the delayed release of the Laquan McDonald shooting video, claiming that Obama takes orders from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

“What we need to do is to initiate a referendum where we will ask the president to step down,” he said. “I do not want an assassination, what I want is a referendum where the people say we can no longer wait for a year, we do not want anyone else and we will want to nominate, by choice, Trump. Either we have the elections now or we don’t have the elections, we do not have one more year.”

He even claimed that ISIS leaders work for the U.S. government while “we create the false flags.” Jones added that the administration “brought in” terrorists to “have them attack us and then take our guns and then restrict internet free speech.”

Frank Gaffney: Women In Combat Leading To 'Feminization' Of The Military

The Pentagon announced this week that it had opened up all combat jobs to qualified female service members, a victory for women who have been serving in such roles for years without official recognition.

Less happy about the development were the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney and the Center for Military Readiness’ Elaine Donnelly, who spoke about the policy change on Gaffney’s “Secure Freedom Radio” program on Friday.

Speaking about the policy change and about the Pentagon’s support for “Lean In” discussion groups, Gaffney lamented “this kind of feminization, I guess is the only way to think about it, in the military.”

Gaffney added that such developments are “so clearly at odds with the concepts that are absolutely central to the military’s whole raison d’etre, and yet that’s being thrown to the side in favor of gender quotas and lower standards and otherwise accommodating the ‘Lean In’ agenda.”

“There will be a price to pay,” Donnelly agreed. “Women will pay the price, unfortunately. Men will as well. Our national security will suffer as a result of this decision.”

Trump: Ban Muslim Immigration To Make America Great Again

After floating the idea of mosque closures, being open to a government database to track all Muslims and making false claims about Muslim-Americans celebrating the 9/11 attacks, Donald Trump is now calling for a sweeping ban on all Muslim immigration to the U.S. Trump proposed the immigration ban in a press statement today, claiming that Muslims harbor a “hatred” of America and of human life.

To back up this assertion, Trump cited an unscientific online poll from the Center for Security Policy, a radical group led by conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney, that the group claimed demonstrated anti-American views among American Muslims. Experts have dismissed the poll as significantly flawed and dishonest.

While Trump’s statement implies that he is interested in “preventing Muslim immigration,” his new plan may even bar tourism as it calls for the “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

His campaign manager Corey Lewandoski told the AP that Muslim tourists would also be barred from entering the country.

Trump’s GOP presidential rival Rand Paul made a similar suggestion on Glenn Beck’s program today, saying that “until we have a better handle on who is already here and whether the people here are obeying our laws, I’d just stop immigration from the Middle East.” Paul also called for increased scrutiny from European travelers because too many people who live in the continent are “against Western civilization.”

Donald Trump Has No Idea About What's Happening In Syria

Donald Trump has recently been praising Russian President Vladimir Putin for his military intervention in Syria, claiming that he got to know Putin while filming a “60 Minutes” segment for which the two gave separate interviews that took place on separate continents.

“I like that Putin is bombing the hell out of ISIS,” Trump said back in October. The next month, Trump claimed that “Russia’s been amazing in what they're doing because they’re fighting to win,” again saying that it’s “wonderful” that Putin is “really bombing the hell out of them.”

Of course, it’s been well-reported that the vast majority of Russian airstrikes take place nowhere near ISIS territory, even “giving cover to fighters from the so-called Islamic State” by bombing rebels who oppose ISIS, while letting the terrorist organization go unscathed.

On Saturday, Roy Gutman of McClatchy described how Russian airstrikes have “benefited the Islamic State” and are helping the group gain territory in Syria as it attacks anti-regime rebels, who, along with civilians and relief agencies, bear the brunt of Russian attacks.

In the days since Turkey downed a Russian warplane that flew into its airspace, Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered a bombing campaign that’s destroyed bakeries and relief convoys in northern Syria, cutting the flow of food to more than half a million civilians.

The result has been a complete halt in relief operations by major humanitarian aid groups, all of which operate out of Turkey. It’s also brought the region to the brink of further catastrophe as hundreds of thousands of residents are caught in the crossfire and are unable to flee their homes.



The stepped-up Russian bombing campaign has had another effect, rebels and aid workers say, allowing the Islamic State to move into areas that it previously had not controlled close to the Turkish border.



The Russian air campaign, combined with a ground offensive by Iranian and Syrian government forces, also benefited the Islamic State, which reportedly has advanced as moderate rebel forces fell back to meet the Iranian push.

And while moderate Arab rebel forces, backed by U.S. and Turkish air strikes, have conquered several villages controlled by the Islamic State close to the Turkish border, the main gains in the fighting of the past 10 days have been made by the Islamic State, observers say.

Gutman goes on to detail how Russian airstrikes have pounded rebels who are fighting ISIS near the city of Azaz.

Unlike the Russian air campaign, the U.S.-led coalition has actually targeted ISIS with over 8,000 airstrikes. And Trump, displaying both his propensity for stroking his ego and making false claims, is trying to take the credit.

Ted Cruz On Trans Rights: 'I Don't Want My Daughters Taking Showers With Little Boys'

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, responded last month to the Obama administration’s efforts to enforce transgender rights in public schools by declaring that he doesn’t want his young daughters “taking showers with little boys.”

Asked by Robert George in a November 25 interview on the EWTN network about a Department of Education ruling that an Illinois school district should have provided a transgender girl access to the girls’ locker room at her school, Cruz said it was a “ridiculous” decision made by “zealots.”

“Well, look,” he said. “This is ridiculous. It shows just how radical and extreme the current administration is. You know, I’m the father of two little girls. Caroline and Catherine are seven and five. I don’t want my daughters taking showers with little boys, I don’t want them when they’re in junior high or high school. And it’s absurd, no parents do. And these are zealots.”

He then pivoted to his pledge to do away with the Common Core standards initiative and abolish the Department of Education entirely.
