“People were so upset when I used the word Muslim… But just remember this: Our Constitution is great. But it doesn’t necessarily give us the right to commit suicide, okay? Now, we have a religious, you know, everybody wants to be protected…. I view it differently.” — Donald Trump
I’m behind here due to bad thunderstorms, etc going on, didn’t hear this quote on TV. Trump is right, I don’t want our country to turn into the one with terrorist attacks, bad enough they are trying to destroy any law and order here killing police trying to do their jobs, trying to protect us. You find any job where there are no “bad apples” and you won’t find one. Our country should be able to not let anyone enter it if they are from a country that is full of terrorists and proclaimed Islamics doing them. But some will still maybe get in during the normal processes, image how many were coming in to not return when visas are expired and they aren’t deported. Some will be deported and return time after time, still committing crimes up to and including murder. And if people would sit down and think, read, study, learn they might be more informed and know why he says what he says. He doesn’t have this concept that all is well and vote for me that Clinton does, Trump is Trump, he won’t change his style, he thinks things we are thinking here at home. No, I’m not a racist, I live in an area where I’m a minority in many ways, some of my best friends were Mexican, even they viewed illegals as they shouldn’t be here – they were here illegally. We are no longer that young country starting up and others coming her solely to kill us. Now we have to be careful who comes in. Not much different from other wars, in WWII the Japanese were treated differently for good reason, but some were good Americans and fought, died with all the brave men who wanted to defend us. Those “good apples” are why we are still free today. I later respected Japanese and liked them, went to their place of business, spoke to them, they were so nice and helpful and always happy. There are so many remarkable people in our world, I’m part of the German/Irish/Scotch (both sides of family) that were descendants of immigrants, but they came here to freedom, not to kill us. They loved this country as they should. They did dirty jobs to survive at first, many were coal miners in PA who also farmed as my grandparents did. My one grandmother and the 9 girls also made hot breakfasts/suppers for miners, brown bag lunches for them to take, ran a post office and telephone office in the home to help feed all 11 kids, keep them in clothes. That’s the normal then and now, you work hard to get what you need to survive and so glad to be free. My faults with some are they come here to try to kill us and glad someone wants to put their foot down and say something. ISIS has already said they will send there people in among the other refugees. What more do we need happen to get us all on board to say no, not now, and it’s not a great thing in our hearts, it’s just necessary or we are done, will never recover our way of life.

The problem is that Islam is NOT a religion, it is a theocracy. Webster’s: Theocracy; “Government with a god as the ruling power, or by priests or officials claiming divine sanction.” Islam is ruled by muhammad,
(a god) and has it’s own court system, (sharia law), and clerics and mullahs who run it.It does NOT qualify for protection under the first amendment. Islam’s one goal is to convert the world to it’s fake religion for domination and rule by force or death.We must defeat them in our courts, on our streets, and in the battlefield whether here or abroad.

Director Martin Scorsese recently told Agence France-Presse that he was “constantly discouraged” from making his newest film, Silence. He added that “three or four great actors” rejected casting offers because they could not “put themselves” in the position of Jesuit missionaries in 17th century Japan. The self-professed “lapsed Catholic” should consider those obstacles a blessing in disguise, given […]

Pres. Obama has, as part of his final pardons, commuted the sentence of convicted traitor and data-leaker Chelsea Manning from 35 years to 5 more months in prison. Was this mercy a good move, or does it legitimize treason and weaken our national security? Vote now in our CBC reader poll!
“I described Obama as an incredible shrinking man, it’s like watching air come out of a balloon. Between now and Easter, his legacy will shrink until it’s about the size of a golf ball.” — Newt Gingrich
