Trump flipflops on crucial issue of importing Muslim refugees



Here is, word for word, in context, what Donald Trump said Tuesday about admitting Muslim refugees from the Middle East:

Bill O'Reilly: You know thousands will come to the United States. Now do you object to migrants who are getting out of the Middle East and North Africa coming to the USA?

Trump: I hate the concept of it but on a humanitarian basis with what's happening you have to.

Here is, word for word in context, what Donald Trump said on Wednesday about admitting Muslim refugees from the Middle East:

Hannity: Should we allow any of them [Muslim Middle Eastern refugees] into this country?

Trump: Look, from a humanitarian standpoint I'd love to help but we have our own problems, we have so many problems we have to solve.

On Tuesday Trump said we had to admit them for humanitarian reasons, on Wednesday Trump said we didn't have to admit them for humanitarian reasons.

As I've said before, on the campaign trail it is easy to misspeak. But this is a very fundamental issue and it doesn't look like a slip of the tongue. He clearly said "you have to" in answer to a question about admitting thousands of them. If Trump were to admit large numbers of Muslims to America, we would be importing the intolerant version of Islam that is practiced in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan, complete with Sharia law, clitorectomies, and honor killings. And then, of course, there would be the terrorism.

I've voiced my concern about Donald Trump before because he has no history of conservatism; in fact, his history is the direct opposite. Supporter say that he has grown and changed and we should discount every thing he has said before he started running for President. But once again I feel uneasy seeing the leading candidate switch back and forth like this. I'd be a lot more comfortable about believing it was an inadvertant mistake if he had a longer history (yes, like Ted Cruz) of having consistent positions on the issues. But what it looks like is that, for a day, he reverted to the Pre-Presidential campaign Trump who supported Democrats, abortion, Hillary Clinton, and mass amnesty for illegal aliens. I love his fighting spirit, I love what he has done for the debate on illegal aliens, but his lack of a record of conservatism worries me; even Ronald Reagan was not a liberal Democrat six months before he ran for President.

How big a tax cut would you need to vote for Jeb Bush?


I love the way Jeb Bush thinks. He knows his views on illegal immigration are unpopular, so he thinks that if he talks conservatively enough about other topics, people will overlook his minor policy differences with mainstream America on illegal aliens and vote for him.

Let's applaud the GOP for going the Judge Judy route to fight Obamacare


I'd like to say up front that I'm an enormous fan of House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority gobbler Mitch McConnell. Really. They're so innovative. Instead of using the powers of the purse given to them in the Constitution to cut off funding for Obamacare, they've decided to appeal it to Judge Judy's court instead:

I've had and still have my doubts about the ideological reliability of Donald Trump. But I cannot deny he is a scrappy fighter.

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.
