Carson says ok to focus on Muslims in search of Radical Muslims



Ben Carson continues to say some very controversial things about Islam. On Sunday he said that when searching for radical Muslims, he would at least be willing to consider focusing the search on Muslims, on the theory perhaps that radical Muslims are more likely to be a subset of Muslims than they are to be a subset of Christians or Hindus. This is obviously very controversial.

Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson said on Sunday he'd listen to evidence that religion could provide probable cause to search the emails and calls of Syrian refugees in the United States.

"I personally don’t feel that way, but I would certainly be willing to listen to somebody who had evidence to the contrary," Carson said on ABC's "This Week." "I think that’s one of the problems, we get to our little corners, and we don’t want to listen to anybody."


Of coruse, this is not controversial at all. This is common sense. But for years we have bent over backwards to avoid the obvious conclusion that the problem lies in a subset of the Muslim community. That's why you see completely random searches at airports of nuns and children, rather than a focus on the ladies all covered up except for their eye slits. That's why rather than an exclusive NSA focus on emails relating to suspected terrorists, the government collects information about all our emails and phone calls.

This is not just being politically correct but inefficient, making us less secure. We have a limited amount of resources and we need to focus them. What Carson is saying is only common sense. You will only find radical muslims among a subset of Muslims, so why not put your focus there?

But doing so would be tantamount to admitting that there is a problem with a subgroup within Islam, a problem that American politicians are afraid to talk about. They think they will be labelled "Islamophobes" if they speak frankly and say that a large subset of Muslims are radicalized and out to kill anyone (including fellow Muslims) who don't agree with them. Instead of addressing this problem honestly, they prefer to live in this pretend world and be silent, risking our own lives in the process.

I don't agree with Dr. Carson's views on illegal immigration, but I think he is right on the mark in this commentary.

When it comes to deporting illegals, George Will is George Won't


I need some help figuring George Will out: is he selectively ignorant on immigration, or simply not very smart? It's a tough question because of Will's intellectual reputation and yet he seems willfully ignorant on the issue of border security. In his latest piece in the National Review he blasts Donald Trump for his plan to deport illegals:

Watch how candidates react to the De-Boehnification of the House


This is one of those times when breaking news can shed a little more light on the candidates. There has been quite different reactions among the candidates to the news that John Boehner is resigning. Unlike Patrick McGoohan's "Number 6", there really is no mystery as to why Boehner resigned--he was too accomodationist of the entire Obama agenda, be it funding ObamaCare, or the illegal amnesty, or now, in his final act, the subsidizing of abortions and the sale of baby parts.

Why can't Mitch McConnell be removed just like Boehner?


John Boehner was forced out of office because he didn't have enough Republicans behind him to guarantee him a majority vote in the House of Representatives. Why can't Mitch McConnell be forced out in the same way? With only 54 Republican senators, it would only take four dissenters to deny McConnell a majority (in cases of a 50-50 tie, Lunch Box Joe votes for the Democrats).

It's a good thing Boehner is gone. After the Vice President, the #2 man in line for the Presidency is the Speaker of the House, John Boehner. It's important, therefore, for the Speaker to be emotionally stable. But I am not sure that he is.

When Marco Rubio starts crying, that's a bad sign


Marco Rubio is tough on immigration. I mean, sure, he sponsored the "Gang of 8" bill which authorized amnesty for illegal aliens, and he still supports amnesty for so-called "Dreamers", and at least a "portion" of Obama's executive amnesty for illegals, but he himself would not issue further amnesty, at least until the border is secure. He also supports keeping birthright citizenship in place, which creates anchor babies, and is willing to consider admitting more refugees from Syria.
