Barack Obama is feckless, Hillary Clinton is corrupt, Donald Trump gives us whiplash, and ISIS continues to attack us, but at least SpaceX had a marvelous landing!

An MSNBC panel was left momentarily speechless Tuesday after former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean defended Hillary Clinton’s claim that the Islamic State is using videos of Donald Trump to recruit new members.
In Starbucks I overheard a conversation mentioning Republicans not saying much against Trump’s position of a religious test for people coming into the U.S. I wanted to post some audio of Lindsey Graham and Carly Fiorina (from the Michael Medved Show) where they very clearly and strongly deny Trumps position. In fact, as of today, ALL the other Republican Presidential candidates have come out against Trump on this issue.
What Trump has right is that we can (and have) stopped immigration at times from countries… but what he has wrong is that we cannot [Constitutionally] ban people entry from the world who are Muslim. You could stop immigration (all immigration) Constitutionally from, say, Syria and Pakistan… but not, as Medved points out, from Saudi Arabi — who are our “allies.” Here is that audio that includes some challenging phone calls. Take note Zuhdi Jasser was the guest during this hour:
Donald Trump seems to be the frontrunner in the GOP primary. In this video, you’ll find out what Bill Whittle loves about The Donald…
…in a statement to TheBlaze regarding Trump’s membership status, Marble Collegiate Church said that while the Republican presidential candidate has a “longstanding history,” he is not an “active member.”
- “Donald Trump has had a longstanding history with Marble Collegiate Church, where his parents were for years active members and one of his children was baptized. However, as he indicates, he is a Presbyterian, and is not an active member of Marble,” the church said.
Donald Trump recently said the Bible is by far his favorite book, but when asked to share a favorite verse or two, he declined, saying religion was a private thing and he didn’t want to get specific. Many concluded he doesn’t read the Bible. But to silence his critics, Trump today shot off the following “25 of my favorite Bible verses”…
- In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was TERRIFIC. And also YUUUUGE.
- Look, I prefer Messiahs who don’t get crucified, okay? I mean, I’ve given a lot to his churches. A LOT. Face it, he let us down.
- Moses. What a dope. Had to go into the wilderness. I’d have negotiated a deal with Pharaoh, day one. A great deal. The best.
- And Jesus went out into the desert. But he should have invested in hotels there. I mean I’m killing it in Vegas. A LOT of money.
- Nathan said to David: “You are the man!” And David said, “No YOU are the man!” And they high-fived each other. It was fabulous.
- Take a little wine for thy stomach’s sake. And if you’re eating the Surf & Turf you can go with the red OR the white. Your call.
- Jesus? Nice guy, but LOW, LOW energy, I mean, bleeding out of his hands, his feet, his wherever…
- God took six days to create the universe & then needed a day of rest? Lazy & inefficient. Would have taken me three days. Tops
- Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife. For a season.
- He rebuked the wind and said to the sea “Silence, be still!” But Jorge Ramos kept talking and talking.
- At the Last Supper, Jesus said to Judas: “What you must do, do quickly. And do it under budget if possible. Unheard of, right?”
- The Israelites were illegal immigrants fleeing Pharaoh so they could have anchor babies in the Promised Land.
- Why do the heathen rage? Because they want jobs. And I’m the greatest job creator God ever made. And then some. Am I right?
- A sower went out to sow. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love sowers. But they’re killing us. They’re sending us their worst sowers.
- A man went to Jericho & he was set upon by thieves. Because they have lousy security in Jericho. The Unions destroyed it there.
- Judas? Bad leadership on Jesus’ part. Would never have happened on #CelebrityDisciple.
- Foxes have holes and birds have nests, but I have duplexes with views of the East River. The Chinese are buying them like crazy.
- You’ve heard it said, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,” but I say unto you that’s lousy negotiating. Why break even?
- A good name is better than fine perfume. But nothing’s better than Trump Cologne.
- A good wife, who can find? I found three.
- Moses saw that the Bush was on fire but was not consumed, because face it, the Bush was low-energy.
- A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown. But I was born in Queens, so who cares?
- When Paul & Silas were praying, an earthquake shook the jail & all the doors were opened, because none of it was built to code.
- A man named Ananias, with Saphira his wife, sold a piece of property. But they were the worst negotiators. They got killed.
- And Jesus came to them walking on the waves and said, “Have you seen the polls? I’m like WAY ahead. It’s not even close.”
- And Pharoah said to Moses: “Do you know how many Hispanics I have working for me?”
- Love covers a multitude of sins. Sure. But you’d be nuts not to get a prenup. I mean, c’mon.
- Then there came a tax-collector & I said “Good luck, because I’ve got the best tax lawyers. I mean they’re monsters. Forget it.”
- And after the wind came an earthquake & he was not in the earthquake. So I’m like, c’mon already. Where are you? I’m a busy man.
- Among whom was Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of Joses, and the mother of James & John. Three classy ladies. Tremendous class.
- Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. Wait a minute…I don’t want to get that specific.
- Hide it under a bushel? No. But I do keep all my Bibles in a very nice place.
- Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes and GAVE THEM AWAY? Terrible business strategy.
Some points out of ten posted by The American Spectator: “Ten Things You Need to Know From Last Night’s GOP Debate”
Speaking about Bush via and interview with the late Tim Russert about his book:
More important, the Republican Party’s nomination looked ungettable, sure to be captured by George W. Bush. So Trump left the party. “I really believe the Republicans are just too crazy, right?” he told Tim Russert on Meet the Press. “I mean, just what’s going on is just nuts.” (http://www.slate.com/id/2291263)
At CPAC, Mr. Trump said, “I’m pro-life,” but in his book, he said,
“I support a woman’s right to choose, but I am uncomfortable with the procedures. When Tim Russert asked me on Meet the Press if I would ban partial-birth abortion, my pro-choice instincts led me to say no.” (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2697513/posts)
He has recently given very progressive candidates money for their campaign bids
Real estate billionaire Donald Trump gave Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel $50,000 in December 2010, just months before hinting to the media he is seriously contemplating a bid to be the Republican Party’s 2012 presidential nominee. (http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2011/04/trump-donated-50000-to-rahm-emanuels-mayoral-bid.html)
On socialized medicine, Mr. Trump stated at CPAC that he would fight to end Obamacare and replace it. Compare that position to what he wrote in his book,
“I’m a conservative on most issues but a liberal on health. It is an unacceptable but accurate fact that the number of uninsured Americans has risen to 42 million. Working out detailed plans will take time. But the goal should be clear: Our people are our greatest asset. We must take care of our own. We must have universal healthcare. (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2697513/posts; and, http://www.slate.com/id/2291263)
Here’s another position that should make conservatives cringe. Again, from his book, Mr. Trump says,
“One of our next president’s most important goals must be to induce a greater tolerance for diversity. The senseless murder of Matthew Shepard in Wyoming-where an innocent boy was killed because of his sexual orientation- turned my stomach. We must work towards an America where these kinds of hate crimes are unthinkable.”
First of all, Mr. Trump has the facts wrong in the case of Matthew Shepard. As I have pointed out before, Shepard was not killed because he was a homosexual; he was murdered by a couple of junkies looking to rob him of his money to buy more drugs for themselves. Putting that aside, perhaps Mr. Trump has not thought through the implications of “hate crimes” legislation.
“Hate crimes” laws create a specially protected class of people, which nullifies America’s promised equal protection under the law. All crimes are hateful. Assaulting one person is no worse than assaulting another person, based on what that person is or how he behaves. “Hate crimes” penalties make punishments harsher for people who assault or murder a person who is labeled with the specially protected status, as homosexual deviants are. This is patently un-American and violates the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2697513/posts)
And, he is a birther, something all conservative papers and journals reject (the life blood of the base):
