Maybe Tom--maybe. But I look back to the "Yellow Peril" immigration rules of the early 20th century that effectively barred all Orientals from entering the country.

Trump is energizing his base, not expanding it, and the last man (or woman!) standing will beat him.

I think he is doing both.

The other thing he is doing is exposing with arc lights, the mendaciousness of the WDC cabal. Saw Ryan saying this is not who we are or some such drivel. Just when I was beginning to think he would be tolerable as speaker, he reveals himself to be another pea in the pod.

"Carter Banned Iranians from Coming to US During Hostage Crisis"

Sandy Daze

Immigration without assimilation is cultural suicide.
We have paused immigration previously, no reason why it could not be done again.

Sure, let it go through the courts. By the time the challenge and appeals wind their way through the system the pause will have defacto taken place.

http://www.immigrationeis.org/about-ieis/us-immigration-history

Excerpt:

From about 1880 through the mid-1920s, America experi­enced an immigration boom, “the Great Wave,” during which immigration averaged 600,000 annually. This was the period during which the U.S. industrialized, creating a huge demand for factory workers. The demand was filled primarily by European immigrants; particularly, in its second half, with immigrants from southern and eastern Europe.

In 1924 and 1926, partly in response to pressure from labor unions, Congress put in place the first comprehensive quota systems to limit immigration into the U.S. For the next 40 years, from 1925 to 1965, the United States had a relatively restrictive immigration policy, which allowed 200,000 people into the country annually, on average. Demographers sometimes call this period “the Great Pause,” although at the time, most Americans thought of it as permanent.

It sounds impolitic, however, Trump does have a point.

Thanks, Sandy, I was about to post that about how long court challenges would take. Muzzies don't assimilate unless you are one of them and go to the mosque. Look at Europe: Netherlands, France, Italy, Sweden and the UK. Sure there are few token professionals and even pols that "represent" their Muzzie communities. Its very cosmetic.

There is a madness, anger and violence inbred into this religion. You only have to live in the sand box or even moderate islamic states like Malaysia or Indonesia to witness it. To think someone coming from Pakistan can be fully vetted is a joke. It wouldn't surprise me if Tashfeen turns out to be an ISI trained plant.

The Infamous Ignatz

Some online lender named Prosper loaned the jihadi bastards the $28,000.

The Infamous Ignatz

And here is a story on Prosper, a P2P lender.

Sandy Daze

The lawfare through the courts has been well used to obstructy, delay, and deflect criticism by this administration. And when that did not work, the resident just said that the court ruled in their favor (even when it did not). No reason at all why this idea (limiting muzzie immigration or mmore broadly from muzzie countries) could not follow the same example. The left knows that Trump knows that
1) he is right, and
2) even if he is not right, he can still act now (well in a year or so) and then drag it out in the courts

At least, Ma & Pa Kwettle wonder why the resident can do this kind of thing, and the repubs cannot seem to find the way out of a paper bag.

What Trump is saying, "I know how to get from A to B. Follow me."

A lot more refreshing than the current gruel offered.

Iggy,

I wonder if there were any recent articles in Dabiq or Inspire on how to use Prosper and/or P2P loans? Wouldn't surprise me at all.

Taranto makes some good points.

Thus Trump’s proposal for a pause in Muslim immigration “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on” strikes us as entirely reasonable. That’s not to say it’s necessarily a good idea. There are potential costs in American-Muslim relations both internationally and domestically, and humanitarian costs as well. There are practical questions about how it would be implemented. The religious-freedom argument, although legally empty, is not without moral force.

Instead of debating the proposal in a reasoned way, the political class—both parties—and many in the media are treating it as a thoughtcrime. Yet the PRRI poll suggests a large majority of Americans are thinking along similar lines.

In keeping with my personal moratorium on Trump commentary (neither pro nor contra), I'll just echo what others have said here: love him or hate him, Trump is forcing the fetid, incestuous, political class and the media whores in this nation to confront issues they'd very much not like to confront. That the political criminal class and the whores are reacting precisely as one would expect makes me grimly satisfied with Trump's bellicosity.

A national political campaign is better than the best circus ever heard of, with a mass baptism and a couple of hangings thrown in.

lyle,

Not only all of the above in your post but he is also bringing out of the woodwork the so called moderate muzzies, the CAIR disguised threat muzzie apologists, the muzzie extremist and even the sharia pushers here in America.

Watch what happens in the next few weeks, we will finally have a discussion on our immigration policies and relationship with Islam here in America. Good.

Presidential Poll Results

Well, the results of this week's presidential straw ballot were interesting. For the first time in our seven straw polls, Ted Cruz took the lead, with 30% of the first place votes, closely followed by Marco Rubio with 26%, and Donald Trump with 17%. No one else was chosen first by more than 6% of you.

Here's the tally: the first number is the percentage of the ballots on which the candidate was selected for first place; the second is the percentage of ballots in which the candidate was chosen for any of first, second or third.

Ted Cruz 30% 66%

Marco Rubio 26% 60%

Donald Trump 17% 32%

Ben Carson 6% 28%

Chris Christie 5% 28%

Carly Fiorina 4% 32%

Mike Huckabee 3% 13%

Jeb Bush 3% 13%

Rand Paul 3% 10%

John Kasich 2% 10%

Rick Santorum -- % 2%

The WI AG is getting tough on the John Doe prosecutors. A letter for now, but this guy is from GUS's county. More to come.

Skoot

Taranto nailed it. Trump says we don't know which muslims are on the brink of murder. The response is "how dare you speak like that, why, these muslims are a breath away from murder."

BeenThereDoneThat

Islam is completely incompatible with individual freedom, in every sense of this sacred endowment. The imams will ensure all Islamic followers across America take up arms or legal barricades against us, when and if they think we've been softened up enough to conquer. A prominent Imam recently was quoted saying, "There is no such thing as moderate Islam - Islam is Islam". A worldwide caliphate is their goal, and for the life of me, I don't understand why we're helping them build it!

How does any sane person think we can welcome hundreds of thousands of Muslims into our society, without eventually paying a horrific price?

daddy on iPad

Way way behind, but as I drive around hearing all the slamming of Trump for his "Un-American" targeting/focusing on Muslim's, let me ask this:

Why the hell, when our President tells his head of NASA that his top priority is to reach out to the Muslim World and only the Muslim World, and tell them how great they have been in contributing to the Space Program, why isn't that the same thing? Did the President tell the NASA Head to reach out to the Jews, who were a hell of a lot more important to the Space Program than Muslims have ever been? No.

How about Hindus? Their great math accomplishments, inventing zero and inventing our numeral system? And their great mathematicians over the last 1500 years including Ramanujan and Chandrashekar? Why the hell didn't the President order his NASA flunky to reach out and congratulate them for their great scientific contributions? Why didn't' he reach out to them?

How about the Chinese? Their science was absolutely brilliant. We would have got nowhere without their invention of gun powder and paper and metallurgy and clocks and a ton of other tangential stuff. Why didn't the President tell his NASA Head to target them for kudos?

How about the Russians? How come he didn't send out his NASA Head to make it his number 1 Priority to pat the Russians and their Greek/Russian Church history on the back for their very real contributions to Space programs?

How about the great ancient cultures surrounding the Mediterranean: The Babylonians and their Math, the Egyptian mathematicians, The Unbelievable achievements of the Greeks and Greek Science, and then the Romans as well. Why are none of them worthy of being singled out by this President?

Then last of all, Christians and Western Civilization in general. Why didn't the President send out his NASA head to make it his highest priority to reach out and thank Christians and Western Civilization for their contributions to NASA and Space Travel? Why the hell not? Why only focus on 1 religion, Islam, and their fairly non-existent contribution to Any of this? All those other religions and cultures I mentioned did as much if not one hell of a lot more than Islam to contribute to our Space Program, yet the President decides to only focus on one Culture, one Religion---Islam. Only Islam is deserving of Official recognition of their achievements to the Space Program and only Islam is named as the top priority for our NASA Head to go out and praise and engage in official outreach as part of his NASA Head chief duties. Why the hell is that? What's the big deal about Trump focusing on Islam iwhen Obama does the same thing every damn day and we have to fund it?

I'm sick of the hypocrisy. The President can focus only on Islam, only on Muslims, and supposedly that's 100% fine. Yet Trump decides to focus on that exact same group, that same Religion, Islam, but that's out of bounds under some idiotic PC assumption that it's "Un-American" in this country to only focus on 1 Religion.

Horseshit.

They are all afraid of Trump AND Cruz.

The GOP lightweight pansies, are sitting in FIRST CLASS, bitching about and ripping Trump and Cruz.

How are the gun grabbers able to make this statement?

"backers of the measure cite Government Accountability Office data that show more than 2,000 people on the list bought firearms from 2004 to 2014"

IIRC - The NICS federal background checks for gun purchases *prohibits* the feds from retaining any record of the name, address, and other personal information of the purchasers of firearms. The NICS system is prevented by law from becoming a database of gun purchasers.

https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/nics/federal-register-october-30-1998-on-nics


So, how on Earth do the feds/GAO know that 2,000 people on the list bought firearms?
Is there some federal registry of gun purchases that the public isn't aware of?
The feds/GAO do not have access to dealers' sales records in aggregate, do they?

Or, are there enough states that require gun registration to enable the feds/GAO to identify 2,000 purchases from the states' registration info?
But how would the feds/GAO have access to state registration info?

The graphic from TM's earlier thread originated from the White House, but the original contains the following wording, which does not cite the GAO as above:

"The need to act could not be more clear. From 2004 to 2014, for example, 2,000 people on the terror watch list were able to purchase guns."

I'm thinking it's likely the gun grabbers are making up the GAO part, since oBOzo's White House isn't citing the GAO in their claims. But, it is oBOzo, so the default position is to "lie, lie, lie" at every opportunity, so who knows?
Here's the White House link: (Beware, massive propaganda warning!)

The left are condemning Trump harder for putting the immigration pause idea out there than they condemned the San Bernardino terrorists for sending jihadboy's coworkers hot lead and pipebombs instead of thank you cards for the nice baby shower they organized.

GOPe is falling over themselves to show their inside-the-beltway collectivist masters that the deer really is a horse.

The public at large are supportive of a pause.

The big question: Does the public at large start questioning other whoppers they are constantly told that simply are not so, or do they Gell-Mann Amnesia their way to the next speech/newscast/campaign commercial?

Daddy,

It helps to remember that Obama thinks the root cause of Muslims turning to terrorism is tied inextricably with poverty and a sense of grievance.

I'm not defending his stupidity, but if that's what you thought, then Muslim outreach on the level of telling them how wonderful they are makes some stupid sense.

Back in 2008, The American Prospect did a big, long piece on "the Obama Doctrine" which ultimately came down to this:

They envision a doctrine that first ends the politics of fear and then moves beyond a hollow, sloganeering "democracy promotion" agenda in favor of "dignity promotion," to fix the conditions of misery that breed anti-Americanism and prevent liberty, justice, and prosperity from taking root.

I remember it because at the time I mocked it by liking the Obama Doctrine to a Stuart Smalley "daily affirmation"

DublinDaveForever

What I love about the Trump/GOP proposal of banning all Muslims from the United States(including those serving in the U.S armed forces)is it scares the shit out of the Jewish-American community.Even Israeli media has universally condemned it and forget about Jewish groups here in the U.S....they're up in fucking arms.

I mean it just about raises every single mental red-flag Jews have.It's going to consolidate them as a Democratic voting bloc in the future.We lost a few per cent of them in 2012...I have a feeling we'll get them back plus some.


Also,the GOP plan basically lights up every minority fear imaginable(then they came for me blah blah).


I don't think the GOP will see the inside of the White house for the next 70 years.I also believe mid-term participation is going to increase from here on out.


Thanks.

Wow!

So after I mentioned the Mosconi Cup being tied 3-3 . . . the Euros won the next 3 matches to go up 6-3.

The last match of the day just ended. The Euros were in control of the match the whole way and the Americans were missing some easy shots. They fought back to get to hill-hill (both teams needing one win to take the match).

After the Euros tried a safety, Shane Van Boening was left with a full table run at the two ball which had no pocket. Two choices . . . return a safety or carom off the two and try to pocket the nine in the corner for the win. Very difficult, low probability shot.

He absof'inlutely nailed it. Like a boss.

Still leaves US down 4-6 going into tomorrow. But that was a huge pick me up for the Americans to end the day.

squaredance

Side-stepping for a moment the very real issue of whether or not there was any "science" at all before the introduction of rigorous empirical methods, the notion that there was any actual and real "golden age" of Islamic science is pure multicult claptrap. There in fact is no such thing at all in Islamic culture such as it was or is today. What accomplishments there were were really the inheritance of the Persian, most immediately formed by the Sassanids who in turn inherited the rich synthesis of Hellenic, Roman and Ancient middle Eastern culture (including the Egyptian input) through the Seleucids and the Greco Bactrians. And of course there is a importation of Indian and Indo-Ayran influence and ideas as well.

Thus the notion of a glorious Islamic civilization during the first few centuries of Islam--the so called "Caliphate" perio--is completely untrue. In fact Islam was a calamity for Civilization throughout the Islamic lands, and was so long before the Turkic/Mongolian intrusions and conversion. Obviously, after the Central Asian invaders converted what came forward was perhaps the worse barbarian destruction in history. One could make the case that is was worse than the barbarian invasion of the Western Roamn Empire. Native Hindu/Buddhist Indian intellectual culture, for example, was almost completely extinguished there.

This myth of Islamic accomplishment is a modern notion thrown out in desperation by Muslims in order to some how excuse the very real fact that their civilization is a primitive one stuck in the medieval period, and this propaganda is further push about by the usual Western hating Leftist in academia and elsewhere. In the former case it is a sort of mass delusional narcissism; in the later case it is treason.

Informed and educated Leftist know it is a lie, but still they repeat it. Why? Because they view Islam as a partner in their destruction of the West in general and the USA in particular.


(and I would argue that there is "Chinese science" is practically certainly not "brilliant", and rather not "science" at all.)

The real marvels, the real precursors to what we call science today are the wonders of the Greeks and the Indians, particularly their mathematicians. It is not really true that the discovery of algebra came out of converted Persians--its real discovery comes to us through India. The introduction formal proofs and methods by the Greeks is one of the great watersheds in history.)

As a matter of fact, modern science and mathematics, and with these the major part of modern rational engineering, are almost wholly a creation of Western Civilization.

When the left tries to convince us otherwise they great violence against us.

It is pretty rich to here the Left whinge about constitutional issues, particularity whe the first things that came out of them after this last shooting where pointed and open attacks on the first and second amendment.

The country should really be aghast at Obama's attempt to disarm us and silence us after such a failure to protect us, not worrying about Trumps quite reasonable suggestion that we place pause on Muslim immigration until we sort this out.

Our grandparents would of course side with Trump; they would not recognize the degraded nation we have become.

Iggy, in fact most of them were Christians, with a smattering of Jews. This is particularly true in the area of translation of the classics and classical philology in general throughout that period.

Oh, and also it is a complete myth that Islam played a major role in"transmitting Greek classical literature. There were Greeks enough in Byzantium for that. We now know that knowledge of the classics through the middle ages was broader than once thought--in fact during the Renaissance much of the literature recovered was found in European monasteries. That which was not discovered there was brought by Greeks fleeing the fall of Constantinople or, prior to that, scholars visiting said city.

This is an easy case. The Constitution established a sovereign nation. An inherent aspect of sovereignty is control of which non-citizens enter. Exclusion of Islamic US citizens coming back is unconstitutional. Exclusion of foreign Islamics most assuredly is not unconstitutional.

But I remain optimistic only because of my belief that God has Special Providence for drunks, orphans and the United States of America.

THIS is what the cesspool in DC will fight for?...foreign Muslims?

It's much easier to be a poorly educated rube from the sticks like me and bow down to my betters, I've decided. In fact, I'm not going to wait for them to confiscate my guns. I'll give them to the Government and donate the FMV to PP. I hear they're into cutting edge research that can cure me from Jesus. And from the snake-handling. Maybe I'll pull a front tooth to show my sincerity...

The Infamous Ignatz

Trump has a knack bordering on genius for saying things that outrage the puritan left and even the phantoms of the feinting couch right, but that just straddle the line of good sense enough that he makes it all about him all the time without completely discrediting himself.

He's like Muhammad Ali at his peak; even the people that hated him wanted him to stick around to keep saying stuff they hated.

Miss Marple 2

Jack,

I remember when he went after Geller. I have mixed feelings about her, because I think she sometimes gets carried away.

Trump probably felt like it was risky behavior because of all of the people at that gathering. What would we have thought if those gunmen had made it in?

However, it does seem like a flip-flop.

However, how many people in the US sort of felt the same way originally, thinking we should be tolerant and understanding? Maybe Trump is reflecting public opinion, as in the "for God's sake they were so nice to those people they threw them a damn baby shower, and all they got was murdered!"

At some point people's tolerance hit its limit. It seems to me Geller just hit her limit quicker than Trump.

This is the link geller provides to give context to The Dailey Beast's concern-post:

It cuts the interview with Trump, but I found the more interesting Q&A from Cavuto at the 3:30 mark.

The new Venezuelan government will be in power for the default[s] and follow on devaluation. The Chavistas, champions of the poor, will be retiring with their stolen wealth beyond reach.

Like Democrats.

MM,

She gets carried away? I almost lost my glass of wine. But thanks for the laugh. Compared to one Donald J. Trump?

We are on the same road to fascism that Mussolini orchestrated so well back in the 30's. No reaonsable voices, even Geller (who is above reason when it comes to Islam) are allowed to be heard.

Forgive me for being in the minority here but Trump is the worst nightmare we can imagine. He won't make America great again he will make it more like Italy 1930-1944.

From your link, Momto2


Lt. Co. Jeffery Hogan assumed command of the fighter squadronin January, and remarked that the Air Force had "never done this mission in this way before, ever."

I am starting to doubt there will be a 2016 election.

if we hadn't seem this movie before, so the mother had to have been aware of what the fledgling shaheeds were doing, the goofy neighbor who chose not to declare a 'canoing accident' had married into the family, shaheed no. 1, had been planning
an operation for a year, and had pics of another future target 'pipe bombs anyone' on his phone,

I'm skipping ahead to say 2 things you have probably heard. 1st Insty confirms what anonamom talked about re: statins (which I stopped taking after that conversation and I think my mental acuity has increased (altho you would never know it from what I post here)

and 2nd: As per our earlier conversation you have persuaded me that banning Muslims is constitutional.

much the same was said about Silvio, another well connected developer and media property, with a

Farooq's mama drove a Lexus?

That does not totally surprise a former mechanic/profiler.

The cultural car of choice is a Camry, but mama must have had a better handout income stream.
