Now There’s Video=> Jimmy Carter Bans Iranian Immigrants from US, Deported Students During Hostage Crisis

The liberal media and Republican Party elites erupted this week after Donald Trump announced his plan to ban Muslim immigrants from the US until the government can assure it is safe to do so.

But Democrat Jimmy Carter did the same thing, and much more during the Iranian hostage crisis.

** Jimmy Carter banned Iranians from the US and deported Iranian students during the hostage crisis.

A picture is worth a thousand–
carter prohibiting immigration
Here is a screengrab from the ABC News report of President Carter’s Iran speech – with a TV caption reading “prohibiting immigration.”

This was from ABC’s coverage of Democratic President Jimmy Carter’s April 7th, 1980 speech, regarding US cutting relations with the Khomeinist regime in Iran.

Here is a clip from the report:

Here’s the transcript from ABC News:

Ever since Iranian terrorists imprisoned American Embassy personnel in Tehran early in November, these 50 men and women—their safety, their health, and their future—have been our central concern. We’ve made every effort to obtain their release on honorable, peaceful, and humanitarian terms, but the Iranians have refused to release them or even to improve the inhumane conditions under which these Americans are being held captive.

The events of the last few days have revealed a new and significant dimension in this matter. The militants controlling the Embassy have stated they are willing to turn the hostages over to the Government of Iran, but the Government has refused to take custody of the American hostages. This lays bare the full responsibility of the Ayatollah Khomeini and the Revolutionary Council for the continued illegal and outrageous holding of the innocent hostages. The Iranian Government can no longer escape full responsibility by hiding behind the militants at the Embassy.

It must be made clear that the failure to release the hostages will involve increasingly heavy costs to Iran and to its interests. I have today ordered the following steps.

First, the United States of America is breaking diplomatic relations with the Government of Iran. The Secretary of State has informed the Government of Iran that its Embassy and consulates in the United States are to be closed immediately. All Iranian diplomatic and consular officials have been declared persona non grata and must leave this country by midnight tomorrow.

Second, the Secretary of the Treasury will put into effect official sanctions prohibiting exports from the United States to Iran, in accordance with the sanctions approved by 10 members of the United Nations Security Council on January 13 in the resolution which was vetoed by the Soviet Union. Although shipment of food and medicine were not included in the U.N. Security Council vote, it is expected that exports even of these items to Iran will be minimal or nonexistent.

Third, the Secretary of Treasury will make a formal inventory of the assets of the Iranian Government, which were frozen by my previous order, and also will make a census or an inventory of the outstanding claims of American citizens and corporations against the Government of Iran. This accounting of claims will aid in designing a program against Iran for the hostages, for the hostage families, and other U.S. claimants. We are now preparing legislation, which will be introduced in the Congress, to facilitate processing and paying of these claims.

Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today. We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue new visas, except for compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest of our own country requires. This directive will be interpreted very strictly.

    Yeah but that was a really smart democrat not one of these evil Republicans!
    Sarc off – The best part of that was freezing all of their assets! We should freeze (and confiscate) the assets of every country harboring muslim extremists.

    I wasn’t aware that Jimmy Carter was a right wing whack job. At least he got one thing right.

  • Scott

    Democrat Franklin Roosevelt rounded up Japanese.
    Democrat Woodrow Wilson rounded up Germans.
    Democrat Andrew Jackson ordered the flat out extermination of American Indians.

    Seems like quite a stretch on the hypocrisy scale to call Trump racist for simply wanting a pause on Muslim immigration given what we know from Pew about the percentage of Muslims that want to kill us.

    Are we trying to say Jimmy Carter is a model for good policy now? I understand the need to expose liberal double standards, but are we really going to use Carter Admin policies to justify anything? Anyone care to mention how many days those hostages were held AFTER Carter’s actions? They did nothing and prevented nothing. It was empty diplomatic posturing.

    Stop it, please, Carter was a democrat, so, what he did was ok; Roosevelt interned the Japanese, Wilson did the same to the Germans and it doesn’t sound like anyone stopped it?

I’m not a Trump Supporter but this entire nonsense of poplitical correctness is going to be the death of us all,

    Liberals and some Republicans are sighting the 1st Amendment when attacking Trump and a hold on foreign Muslims till the system is worked out- the Constitution was written for Americans not foreign governments or people – but these same liberals have NO problem with Obama coming after Americans who “ARE” protected by the Constitution on 2nd Amendment Rights-

    Although “Iranian” isn’t a religion and there sure are deep ramifications with banning specific religions, out of hand, there should be a “price” to aligning religion with national identity.

    That’s not true.We have a “religious” test for asylum. . . .You have to be a “persecuted religion” to get certain levels of asylum. . . .So why can we not revoke entry based on it since we predicate entry on a “religious” requirement. . . .What is obscene, Obama deported Christians last month back to ISIS controlled Iraq, but he’s air lifting 1,000s of Muslims into our nation. . . There is something really obscene and twisted with the Obama administration.

    Iranians are PERSIANS, a distinct race, so banning Iranians is banning people of a particular race. Just as people from China are a particular race of people. Banning everyone who is from China is the same as banning Chinese people, a distinct race.

    Iran is a THEOCRACY, so banning people from Iran is also banning people based on RELIGION.

    Kelly I don’t know you and you probably have good intentions so try to listen to reality. Obama and Hillary lie so often and the media distorts so much people don’t care. Obama blamed dead Americans butchered by terrorists on gun control (ie. Red necks and republicans it’s your fault) people are supporting Trump and he will win because of this nonsense. Nothing you can do will stop it.

  • caligula

    ISIS has declared themselves a State, and they have declared war on the USA.

    Their State, or country, includes portions of Iraq and Syria, so we can legally ban people from both regions from coming in because they live in the Islamic State, which has declared war on us – just like Carter did.

    Haha, yeah. That is the first one that came to mind too, but we did vote for this.

Iran hated us because we manipulated them and our CIA engineered a coup and installed a murderous tyrant. We reaped what we sewed. Those hostages, the religious hardliners. We enabled them. Our actions gave them legitimacy and support. So yes you are right, Carter did partially create this mess. As did the UK and several administrations before Carter’s. If you want to go back far enough, Sykes-Picot is where we went wrong. In attempting to prevent a caliphate, a peaceful one, we created one born of violence and rabbid hatred of the West.

    The US attorney general was recently quoted as threatening prosecution for anyone who wanted to exercise their constitutional right of free speech. She “walked it back’ later. Obama does this all the time. Gotta ya journalism has run its course. People believe Trump because he says what he feels not what I poll suggests. Comparing Trump to Hitler (as many do exaggerating these types of statements) marginalize just how evil Hitler was and lose the argument. Trump was right on in large respect. Inarticulate? maybe. Make his point? absolutely. Remember Rev. Wright? Who won? Trump is going to be your President and you have Obama’s campaigns and policies to blame. Maybe next time be a bit more understanding of alternative arguments.

    Carter was correct. Per law, POTUS has not only the right, but the duty, to restrict aliens that are detrimental to our society. Donald Trump is absolutely correct in his assessment.

    (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President
    Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

    Well the liberal retort to this is the Carter just banded people from a certain country, which is very easy to define. “Muslim” is a nebulous term that encompasses people from the whole world. Harder to block. Which is true. However, just block “all” immigration until the process is shored up. Setting a hard 6 month time frame and blocking every single person is not that difficult. Not for the ones coming in legally anyway.

    “To the principles of our government, nothing can be more opposed than the maxims of absolute monarchies. Yet from such we are expect the greatest number of emigrants. They will bring with them the principles of the government they leave, imbibed in their early youth..In proportion to their numbers they will share with us the legislation. They will infuse into it their spirit, warp and bias its directions, and render it a heterogeneous, incoherent, distracted mass… I doubt the expediency of inviting them by extraordinary encouragements.”

    “Sweden Tops Europe for Number of Rapes = Muslim Rape Jihad”“…….Sweden has a larger immigrant, including Muslim, population than any other country in northern Europe. The numbers there are likely to be at least as bad as with its Scandinavian neighbors. The actual number is thus probably even higher than what the authorities are reporting now, as it doesn’t include second generation immigrants. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm, who has investigated violent crimes in Svea high court, found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or by foreign parents.”But Europe continues to cover up the truth about what is happening to them. . . .Now why would we want to emulate Europe?

    Trump is 100% correct. This isn’t about religion. It is about common sense.

    ISIS Has Passport Machine, Can Create Their Own Passports

    The intelligence community is concerned that they [IS] have the ability, the capability to manufacture fraudulent passports, which is a concern in any setting,” Comey told the legislators.

    The threat was highlighted last week in a 17-page security bulletin sent by the Homeland Security Investigations (HIS) to law enforcement, which said IS procured at least one passport printing machine during a raid on the city of Deir ez-Zour last summer, reported ABC News, which obtained the document.

    “If ISIS ability to produce passports is not controlled, their operations will continue to increase and expand outside of their operational controlled areas,” the report said.

    Winston Churchill’s ‘River War’ 1889

    ” How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men…”

  • SWDC

    “… Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science – the science against which it had vainly struggled – the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

    Widespread organised child sexual abuse took place in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, England, between 1997 and 2013. Local investigations into the abuse began in 1999, although some reports were never finalised or made public by the authorities. In 2010, five men of Pakistani heritage were found guilty of a series of sexual offences against girls as young as twelve. A subsequent investigation by The Times reported that the child sex exploitation was much more widespread, and the Home Affairs Select Committee criticised the South Yorkshire Police force and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council for their handling of the abuse.

All Muslims must obey, and failing to obey makes them candidates for horrible punishment, including death. Islam is a retrograde force in the world.

One, although Obama’s tried to work with media and others to hide the truth, Islamic State refers to their war on the West as against the Christians and the Crusaders. Their hate long preceded anything done this week or this century. Two, it implies Muslims are but one perceived slight away from choosing to commit terror attacks.

    When you are talking about the Middle East there is not much difference. Saudi Arabia for example is known as the “Kingdom of the Two Cities” (Mecca and Medina). Most of them follow Sharia. There is no secular law. Many even have a “religious police” known as the Muttawa.

    Facts, as linked in other comments, demonstrate why Trump specifically called for a pause in Muslim immigration while we are at war with Islamic State. For example, it’d be poor judgment to except Jordan or Saudi Arabia.

    “ISIS doesn’t just exist in Syria and Iraq — it has major constituency supporters in almost all Arab countries, including Saudi, Kuwait, Lebanon and Jordan. So they want to really minimize the risks.”

    “Also, remember that one of the largest contingencies within ISIS are the Saudis. They’re not just fighters, they play leadership roles”

    He isn’t racist, it’s just a bad plan. Not because it wouldn’t make us safer or would make us safer, but because it is absolutely absurd. Are Muslims now carrying Muslim ID cards? How will we know who are Muslims? By asking them? Come on! This is a bad plan because of no other reason beside that it would be ineffective at stopping people who want to kill Americans. Think about it, if they kill, they have no problem with lying.

Failure to report or provide certifiable reason for otherwise= stripped of citizenship or Visa, as applicable and deported. Launch detailed probe into ALL Muslim advocacy organizations operating in US.

    You know, the thing is here, folks, whether we’re talking about the hard left or the progressive left or these RINO type Republicans and the commentariat, these people are actually making up a new Constitution and body of law as they go along based on how they feel. So Trump comes along, they do not know about this law. They obviously don’t know it or they wouldn’t be making fools of themselves saying what they’re saying. They don’t know the law exists. Trump proposes that we put a moratorium on Muslims entering the country, and they just have a conniption fit and they talk about how it’s violating the Constitution and it makes a mockery of our system and it makes a mockery of our values and this is not who we are. They’re just telling us how they feel, but they are certainly not knowledgeable of the Constitution. They’re making it up.

    Oh I know first hand about the 444 days and the Iranian hostage crisis. One of my elementary school lunch ladies when I was a kid was married to a USAF crew member who lost his life in that failed hostage rescue attempt. I’ll never forget her face.

    And my comment about Carter’s Boatlift debacle was rhetorical: the military town I grew up in had to take some of those refugees in and our USAF base built a tent city for them (and protected it). Some escaped, and we had to live in fear of being targeted by those Cubans who escaped for some time.

    aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

Third, an applicant must establish that the government is either involved in the persecution, or unable to control the conduct of private actors.Geeee, funny how he hasn’t brought in Christians that are being slaughtered, but he’s air lifting in Muslims. . . .and wanting to admit thousands of Muslims, screaming at Trump about basing his “pause” on a religious test.

    Carter deported only certain Iranians – only those who posed a threat especially to Iranians already living here.

    There were two reasons Iranians immigrated to the U.S. First were to escape the Shah’s regime. The second was the escape from the takeover by the Ayatollah.

    If you recall the new regime was threatening to assassinate Iranians living in the U.S. who were not loyal to the new regime.

    There is no comparison between the Trump ban and what Carter did back then.

    This is a mess of a post! Carter didn’t just deport, he also paused immigration. His deportation and other measures went even further than Trump suggested, yet Dems don’t call Carter Hitler for barring a nationality. And Iranians came for more than 2 reasons. Both are pauses in immigration related to national security based on existing U.S. Law. Read other comments and links.

  • depressionbaby

    Woodrow Wilson was a Democrat. FDR was a Democrat. Jimmy Carter wasn’t mentioned but he was also a Democrat when he stopped immigrants Iranians from immigrating. Democrat Presidents are always blameless; Obama in particular.

    Partially? Hell he could have stopped the overthrow of the Shah in a nanosecond, instead he aided his demise and allowed our people to be held prisoner.

    Try less lecturing and more reading. Those points have been made in comments here. In fact, Franklin Graham has been proposing a Muslim immigration and supports Trump addressing it.

    From his FB page:

    Franklin Graham

    For some time I have been saying that Muslim immigration into the United States should be stopped until we can properly vet them or until the war with Islam is over. Donald J. Trump has been criticized by some for saying something similar. The new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said yesterday that he disagrees—saying that “such views are not what this party stands for and more importantly it’s not what this country stands for.” Politicians in Washington seem to be totally disconnected with reality.

    Research shows that there are 2.75 million Muslims living in the U.S. According to a poll commissioned by the Center for Security Policy, 51% of Muslims living in America believe “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to sharia” (Islamic law) instead of the U.S. Constitution. 29% agree that violence against those who insult Mohammad is acceptable, and 25% agree that violence against America can be justified as part of global jihad. Among males under the age of 45, that number rises to 36%. And 29% of males under 45 believe that violence against America is justified in order to make Sharia the law of the land. This is frightening.

    Our politicians are not listening to the truth—my prayer is that God will open their eyes. This affects our security and the future of our nation. If you agree, email your Congressman or Senator today, and SHARE this with others (be sure to copy & paste this text when sharing).

    Franklin Graham
    July 17 ·
    Four innocent Marines (United States Marine Corps) killed and three others wounded in ‪#‎Chattanooga‬ yesterday including a policeman and another Marine–all by a radical Muslim whose family was allowed to immigrate to this country from Kuwait. We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad. We should stop all immigration of Muslims to the U.S. until this threat with Islam has been settled. Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized–and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad. During World War 2, we didn’t allow Japanese to immigrate to America, nor did we allow Germans. Why are we allowing Muslims now? Do you agree? Let your Congressman know that we’ve got to put a stop to this and close the flood gates. Pray for the men and women who serve this nation in uniform, that God would protect them.

    Frankly, none of this matters. It is completely appropriate (and constitutional) for a president to temporarily suspend immigration under the law, as it is for a presidential candidate to suggest it.

    The further the christian world strayed away from orthodoxy and adherence to their religion, the greater progress in raising the standard of living and prosperity of western civilization. The correlation has been unmistakenably linear SO FAR. Islam understands this and this is why they reject western ways of life, because it can only come by straying away from adherence to religious doctrine. I woul dwager a bet that at least 90% of the people who claim to be christian have not read a single page out of the bible in their adult lives…..this is the difference between Islam and christianity and is PRECISELY the reason why Islam came into being to begin with. It is the same story told a third time with the purpose of getting the first two groups who strayed back in line with God.

    This ideology is NOT compatible with western civilization as we know if for the last 500 years.

    This just goes to show that the progressive left hates gays and women. On the one hand they wish they had a simple democracy and could get away from the constitution which states unalienable God given rights man cannot vote away, and on the other hand they are doing everything they can to bring in more muslims. A frightening number of muslims in the US now would vote for sharia law, a system in which women are truly abused, and gays are thrown from the roofs of medium height buildings into a pile and then stoned to death. While it might not happen overnight, there will still be chaos like in the attack in CA. The left knows the chaos that will come from it, and they understand the suffering it will cause, but to them the means justify the end, and chaos is the best way to gain power. They do not mind If people have to suffer to achieve a true socialist utopia. Stopping the muslims from entering until we can make sure they understand and agree with individual liberties will protect the good muslims that are already here and came to escape sharia. It is common sense.

    Marco Rubio has a history of working with the Obama admin and Dems, among other issues. Signaling your fav candidate? This spin was deployed months ago to die in flames of facts – you’re behind. Trump donated almost 3x as much to Republicans, including nominees McCain and Romney. Romney also used Trump as a fundraiser/surrogate. Trump called out Obama & MSM over his records, and said Hillary should be in prison, tougher on them than many other Republicans. You won’t get anywhere pushing party loyalty or relevance these days. Tell Jacobus and her client GOPAC, Wilson, Howe, & Mair their smears fail. Btw, the Bushes and Clintons are close. Been calling Jeb out for that? Good to see you abandoned opposition to the pause in Muslim immigration though.

    You are correct, they could lie. But we are talking about a religion here. People that truly believe in the invisible and they are willing to die and kill for it. Their religion do not allow them to say anything against their prophet or eat pork for instance, if they do that, then they go to hell. Like Christians can’t deny they believe in Jesus.

    An true example I will give you that is happening right now: Many Christians want to become Jews and immigrate to Israel (long story) but they can’t because they need to tell them, in words and signature that they are not believers in Jesus. Now, how can the officials know for sure? They don’t have to. The Christian religion and the threat of hell is more scary than the threat of death.

    Sigh. Well, there’s a reason you never answered the question. It’s because you cannot allow facts to get in the way of your big-Government progressive. You can deflect, blame Bush (like all liberals do) and claim “talking point.”

    But the fact doesn’t change: your supporting the only candidate to have donated to the current Democratic front-runner.

    On that score, your candidate is (admittedly) more corrupt than Bernie Sanders.

    So, answer or not, the double-standard and hypocrisy is pretty telling.

  • HeadlineHawk

    I’m not a fan of Rubio, but the fact that you attack him when I mention “Clinton donor” is pretty sad considering the fact that there’s only one candidate guilty of that charge.

    Guess you didn’t set up the question as well as you hoped since you did get answers, but not ones that suited your purpose. Guilty/corrupt is hyperbolic. Tell ya what.

    I would say it is Overton Window, also known as the window of discourse, rather than Occam’s Razor.

    The Overton Window is the range of ideas the public is willing to accept.

    It supposes that an idea’s public acceptance must fall within the window, rather than on a political figure’s whims and fancies. The window includes a range of policies considered acceptable in the current climate of public opinion, which a politician can recommend without being considered too extreme to gain or keep public office.

    Trump is well outside the Overton Window, and he knows it. At every turn he has sought to shift the debate. Move the window, as it were, to a more suitable position for his policies. Ever notice the adjusting he does after he goes too far with his proposals? He tempers everything, he’s moving his views back into the window frame of acceptability in the days following his outrageous comments. His outrageous proposals themselves are moving the window slightly further each time. You can see it happening. People used to be outraged at everything he said, now he gets away with saying more until he moves outside of that window and then BAM! Outrage. Make no mistake about it though, the window is being moved in Trump’s favor.

    Trump is running circles around the media and his opponents, both left and right. There is no reason to assume that he won’t do the same with Clinton when he turns his sights on her. I think he might be our next president . For better or worse.

    Clinton began working with Bush’s father, President George HW Bush, in the aftermath of the 2004 Asian tsunami. The two continued such fundraising work after Hurricane Katrina and a relationship was born. If that meant that one Bush became a surrogate father to Clinton, the other became a surrogate brother.

    Nit all Arabs are Islam. Persians are not Arabs either. Both deny being any part African Negros too.

  • Very interesting! Have to admit I’ve never heard of the Overton Window, but it’s an excellent metaphor… describes the sequence of events perfectly! There is no doubt that, from his very first remarks about Mexico sending us criminals, drug-addicts and rapists, he has been changing the direction, the tone and the tenor of political discourse, and in my opinion, for the better.

    Were it not for Trump, the rest of the GOP hopefuls would be talking about cutting taxes, de-regulating the Alphabet Agencies and repealing Obamacare. Oh, and maybe a piece here and there about eMail, but they’d be saving those big guns for after the primaries. I almost suspect that there might not even have been as many terrorist attacks had it not been for Trump’s domination of every news cycle… ISIS does, after all, thrive on garish publicity, just like Trump.

    But more to the point, I turned to Occam because of the razor-sharp simplicity of what he says, not so much as to why he says it or even the hoped-for impact of his comments. If Kate Steinle was murdered by someone here illegally from Mexico, stop allowing murderers to enter illegally from Mexico. If after 20-plus years of failing utterly to secure our southern border, the United States, arguably the most technologically advanced nation on earth, despite precedents set by both China and Israel, still hasn’t figured out how to build and pay for an effective wall, then let folks know that, hey, you can do both, and the “leaders” who say that we can’t are stupid losers. If a blonde news bimbo shows bias instead of being “Fair & Balanced,” then treat her like a biased blonde news bimbo. End of discussion.

    This is not rocket science. I submit that Occam is a contractor and he just replaced Overton’s Window with an Overhead Door!

    PS: Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I am not a Trump supporter. My dream team would be Cruz – Fiorina. Show me that ticket and some broken glass and I’ll drop to all fours!

  • Guest

    Seems you’re having a hard time keeping track of the conversation. A recap: you tried to smear Trump as “befriending” Hillary, yet now a full 3X, you’ve given Jeb a pass on it, and now many others, which demonstrates you have no issue with anyone “befriending” Hillary, but instead just hate Trump. Now, after it’s pointed out that Trump donated 3x as much to Repubs, you want to smack him for supporting GOP nominees too. Stop spinning, get a grip, and deal with your grief. Trump’s exposing the Uniparty for what it is.

  • HeadlineHawk

    Jeb has nothing to do with this conversation—he’s a terrible candidate—end of story.

    “Spinning.” Keep in mind here, I’m not the one having to defend and explain away the fact that Trump donated to the Clintons. You can try and sugar coat it by saying that he donated to GOP establishment as well, but again, that kind of goes against the perception of him as an “outsider.”

    To recap the facts:

    – Trump donated to the leading DEMOCRAT front-runner
    – Trump donated to the leading GOP ESTABLISHMENT
    – Trump stands by his crony methods of “buying off politicians”
    – Trump is A-OK with the government stealing private property via Eminent Domain
    – Trump wants Universal (Government) healthcare
    – Trump wants to keep the Iran deal in place
    – Trump wants to expand the NSA’s ability to spy on the average American
    – Trump, never, in any policy proposal takes the Constitution into any account whatsoever
    – EVERY policy proposal Trump has put forth grows the size and power of Government

    These are facts. Reality. Who Trump is. If you choose to support Trump in spite of these (and there’s much, much more), that’s your choice.

    But throwing out the “establishment talking points” claim, or diverting to Bush or other candidates doesn’t stop these facts from being facts. It just shows you’re unwilling to own up to what you’re really defending.

    Hense, the reason no one will answer the question of whether a Trump supporter would hold a Rubio or even a Carson to the same standards.

  • Guest

    That’s funny. We answered that Rubio was a terrible candidate, and you claimed it wasn’t an answer, yet you say the same about Jeb. Not sure if your anti-Trumpness is personal hate or paid opposition, but it isn’t honest or fact-based. What’s worse is you don’t seem to care what the truth is, and when facts refute you, you try to spin away or to warp them to suit your purpose. You’re absolutely part of the Uniparty attacks against him; you use the same tactics including personal insults and attempts to shame his supporters. Not only do these attacks fail, they galvanize his support.

    While you hate this fact, Trump gave almost 3X as much to Republicans as Dems, donated across the political spectrum and to vets. That he both figured out how the system works then exposed it is an awesome thing. Maybe you should express some concern over the politicians bowing, scraping, and doing big donors’ bidding rather than defending the Constitution and representing their constituents as they swore to do. The 5th Amendment is both constitutional and adjudicated. If you want that changed, address the legislators and judges. Trump’s advocated a market-based HC fix, including portability. Trump rallied with Cruz, Brat, and others to stop the Iran deal, railed against the $150B released to Iran, and the hostages left behind. Your comments about his policies are patently false. See his 2A policy. He’s repeatedly called out cutting the size and budget of the government, including cutting at least 3 departments.

    As you well know, there was neither a deflection to Bush or a blame Bush, but instead an illumination that the only candidate you ever call out for any of these accusations is Trump. If you were authentically concerned about any of those positions, you’d address them more broadly.

    I have no problem standing up for the candidate I support. You cannot say the same – apparently he or she is indefensible.

    this is completely different than “banning all muslims” which accounts for roughly 1.6 billion people… We are not at war with a specific country – you can’t just “ban all muslims”.. I am fan of trump but this is silly.. He doesn’t even have a good idea of how that would work other than asking them?? Here it is easy to ban Iranian’s because they are from a specific country.. Muslims could be from France, Asia, Africa.. You can’t ban mind sets and beliefs… You can try.. and fail. Instead Trump should of come up with a better idea on how to secure us, whether it be more intense screening.. Or requiring Visas, as they passed a day after his clip went viral. He really just made a fool of himself, unfortunately..

  • Look, we’re not defending Trump’s choice of words here, but defending the right of a president to protect American citizens. If a president decides that the only way to halt the flow of Muslim immigrants into the country is to halt ALL immigration entirely until ISIS is defeated, then he has that right under the law. If that inconveniences our “allies,” too bad… they’ll just need to adjust their quotas and get on board to help get the job done. The president can then re-open the borders when national security dictates, not political correctness.

    Wrong. Class simply means group or subset in this context. It’s legal and constitutional to pause Muslim immigration to America.

  • In a word, yes… a ban on Muslims would apply to ALL Muslims, and since virtually every country has a Muslim population (especially yours), then we should close our borders to them all. Now if that upsets your sensitivities (or those of our “allies”), tough. This is war, not pattycakes.
