Trump Is Just Wrong

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve made some rather controversial statements here regarding the Islamic terrorists that have spent the last 14 years (and actually longer) trying to bring down our nation. I’ve questioned whether the president is serious in stopping them (he’s not). I’ve questioned whether we should have troops on the ground (we should), and I’ve even gone so far as to question whether Islam is really a religion because of the fact it calls for the outright murder of their non-believers.

I’ve also said that our immigration system is broken. It needs to be fixed before we let anyone else into the country. That is legal, illegal, Muslim, non-Muslim, it doesn’t matter. San Bernardino proved that we just don’t have adequate information to vet these people that are trying to enter the country. But we need to fix the problem, not do as Donald Trump says, and not let any Muslims into the country again. That’s not right. THAT is biggoted. And that is wrong.

Let’s get one thing straight and very clear. We need to fix our immigration system. We need to fix our border. We need to stop illegals from getting into the country, and we have to have a way to protect citizens from terrorists from legally getting here. To not do so is no less than a deriliction of duty and it’s not tolerable. It’s a violation of the oath of office that the president took when he was inaugurated. That would mean it’s also impeachable.

But it’s not right to just not let Muslims in. It’s right to not let ANYONE in until it’s fixed. Don’t limit it to Muslims. There are radicalized people out there that aren’t Muslim. And there are Muslims that are not radicalized. And it’s up to our government to figure out who’s who. It’s a tough job, but it’s what we pay taxes for. And it’s certainly not a job Bobo Obama and his Muslim-leaning ideology will want to embrace. But guess what? He wanted the job. Now he’s got it, he can’t shirk his responsiblity. And neither can Loretta Lynch. She must prosecute to the full extent of the law. In fact, when they catch these terrorists, are they being tried as “hate crimes”? If I did anything against a Muslim it probably would be called that…so why isn’t the shoe fitting the other foot to use a mixed metaphor?

Trump needs to walk back his statement about not letting Muslims into the country. To not do so makes him sound like a racist. I don’t think he is, but he sure sounds like one. That’s why we need to make sure the brain is engaged before we put the mouth in gear. In Trump’s case, he’s been able to dance around the fact he makes a lot of stupid statements, but it’s going to come back to haunt him!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

PS: There will NOT be any blog posted on Wednesday or Thursday. Hopefully, I’ll have my internet access back up at the Desert Enclave on Thursday, and we’ll be back to normal on Friday AM!

  1. Try not to get soft on The Donald.

    • Oh, I’m not getting soft on him. He’s wrong on this issue. Like Basharr says, if we close the borders to EVERYONE, it’s not bigoted (it’s NOT racist because Islam is a religion, not a race). That also is allowed by the constitution. And we should get this immigration thing sorted out sooner rather than later!

  2. Seal the borders until we can come up with some policy that does not get us caught with our pants down. If we have a president that refuses to truly engage those that would kill us then cut off the flow until we can be AMERICA again. We cannot under Obama for he is a coward

    • Please describe what security looks like along with freedom and liberty. We didn’t get caught with our pants down, we got caught with pussy ass firearm policies. Everything they did was legal up to the shootings. You are responsible, not liberals. See you at Cabela’s gun section where we can buy a 50 caliber sniper rifle for hunting rabbits at long range.

      • Not saying we got caught but with Obama an open path into this nation needs to be dealt with. Add in the fact our president is doing everything he can to disarm us its gonna happen one mistake and 911 all over again.

    • And I don’t have a problem with that. THAT makes sense. Keep EVERYONE out (not just Muslims) until we get the problem fixed. That’s what Trump should have said.

  3. Not saying this is the case, but according to his book “Art of the Deal” Trump says that when he negotiates, his first move is to make an offer that is so outlandish that it can’t be taken seriously. Then, you negotiate down from there. I wonder if he’s doing something like that with some of these positions he’s taking? Who knows?

    • You know…that’s the most cogent argument I’ve heard so far for his statement. You could just have something there…I haven’t read his book (I’ve never been a huge Trump fan), but I can see where that makes a lot of sense! Thanks for the insight!!!

      • I don’t know how accurate it is, but the guy has to be a good strategist to get to where he is today. He may get to the primary season and start pulling back on some of the extreme positions he’s taken. Of course, no matter how crazy the guy might be, if it comes down to it, he’s still way better than a Hillary presidency.
