Ted Cruz vs. Donald Trump on Muslim Refugees in the US



With millions of Muslim refugees pouring out of Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and other places in conflict, the question arises of whether they should be admitted not just to European countries, but also to America.

Donald Trump realizes the danger of admitting refugees to America. He says that some of them may be members of ISIS. He understand how places like Paris are no longer "recognizable" because they have so many Muslim immigrants. But then he says that for humanitarian grounds we have to let them into America, despite the security risk. In other words, he puts the well-being of Muslim refugees ahead of the safety of Americans.

Ted Cruz, however, takes the opposite view.

Ted Cruz, whose own father fled an oppressive regime decades ago, said Tuesday he opposed the U.S. taking in “large numbers” of refugees fleeing violence in Syriaand elsewhere in the region.

“Sen. Cruz is advocating for humanitarian assistance to the refugees from both Syria and Iraq and north Africa,” Cruz spokesperson Catherine Frazier told The Daily Beast. “However, given the logistical challenges and the security risk posed by resettling large numbers of them far afield in the US, he is not in favor of this plan if the ultimate intent is to return them to their homes.

Ted Cruz is right. The Muslims from these countries come from a very intolerant culture. They will refuse to assimilate and when they gather in sufficient numbers they will instead insist we conform to their culture. And a substantial minority of them will support terrorist acts against Americans, if the history of Muslims in places like France, Germany, and Great Britain is any guide.

The Muslim refugees should be taken in by other Muslim countries, like the Gulf States which haven't taken any. It is also very curious that large countries like China and Russia have refused to accept any refugees. They know about the risk of terrorism and don't want to put their own citizens at risk.

Why should America be any different? Trump's view on this is disappointing, to say the least.

New "Jeb--for all your sleeping needs" ad shows power of personal attacks.


I've had and still have my doubts about the ideological reliability of Donald Trump. But I cannot deny he is a scrappy fighter. Today's entry is a new ad entitled "Having trouble sleeping at night?" showing a woman asleep during a Jeb Bush speech and concluding with "Jeb--for all your sleeping needs". (Although, if I may shamelessly do so, I'd like to plug my own parody version of the speech with enhanced snoring and yawns).

Could Hillary's personality be improved with Ben Carson's help?


Hillary's handlers have leaked to the press that Hillary is planning to be more spontaneous, more human than before. The contradiction in terms is laughable. Plainly enough, Hillary has a personality problem. But then I started wondering, could Ben Carson, a renown neurosurgeon, help her? What if Carson opened up Mrs. Clinton's skull during exploratory brain surgery and tried to stimulate different parts of her brain?

Watch a top lawyer rewrite Hillary's loyalty pledge


Taking a cue from the good Chairman Mao, Hillary Clinton is asking voters to sign a "loyalty pledge" stating they will vote for her in the upcoming election. The whole thing reeks of desperation because of the lumbering hospice/zombie campaign of Bernie "Weekend at Bernie's" Sanders who is slowly overtaking her in the primaries. But when I read the pledge it struck me how woefully short and underwritten it was; after all, a pledge is a kind of contract, but this one was bereft of many important contractual details. As a Harvard Law School trained attorney, like Obama and Ted Cruz (hopefully, a little more like the latter than the former), I thought I might help and give some tips on what Hillary's pledge should look like.

Please help Rick Santorum figure out why, 99 Iowa counties later, he's still at 1%


Americans are a helpful people. We give money to help wounded veterans; we give money to help fight diseases; and we even given money to the homeless, to spend on food, alcohol, and narcotics (though usually not in that order). That's why we need to band together to help Rick Santorum. He looked very puzzled in a Times article which discussed how, even after visiting all 99 counties in Iowa, he's only 1% in the polls, and about the same nationally.

Bush may have zero percent support in Iowa


In the most recent Iowa GOP Poll, Jeb Bush polled at 6%. But the poll's margin of error is plus or minus 5.5%. That means Bush may be as high as 11.5%, or as low as .5%, which is just about zero. Isn't that incredible for the "inevitable" $120 million dollar man, who now may be at zero percent in Iowa, and not doing much better (only 8%) in New Hampshire? Do you think it would help if Bush ran some Spanish language ads calling himself a Conservative?
