Ben Carson meeting with Syrian refugees... to learn their point of view



Ben Carson is going to Jordan to meet with Syrian refugees to learn their "perspective". This after Carson freely agreed with the statement that people do not view him as ready to fight terrorism

Mr. Carson acknowledged that his slippage in the Iowa polls, where he dropped 10 percentage points in a month in surveys by Quinnipiac University, was because voters did not see him as the right person for the Oval Office at a time of fear of terrorism.

“I would agree with that assessment,” he said.

What? Is Carson saying he isn't ready to be president? Astounding. Then why he is going to Jordan?

“I want to hear some of their stories, I want to hear from some of the officials what their perspective is,” Mr. Carson said. “All of that is extraordinarily useful in terms of formulating an opinion of how to actually solve the problem.”

Like other Republican candidates, Mr. Carson has rejected accepting Syrian refugees “at this time” because of the threat that terrorists may infiltrate their ranks. President Obama wants to accept at least 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year, insisting that vetting that takes up to two years is adequate.

“I’m not sure there are only two choices, that we bring these people in or be coldhearted,” Mr. Carson said. “I believe we can set up safe zones in Iraq and Syria.”

His itinerary at the refugee camp, run by the United Nations, called for visits to clinics, a hospital, an “adolescent-friendly space” and a women’s and girls’ center.

His advisers framed the Jordan trip as an effort to improve his knowledge of the refugee crisis, no less than to demonstrate his credibility on foreign policy.

This is not the way to do it. Americans are not looking for a candidate to learn the "refugee perspective". They are looking for a candidate who is going to protect us from massive imports of people from a hostile culture, some of whom will try to hurt us, and many others of whom have beliefs that are in direct conflict with the free and open society we have in America.

In a Breitbart interview, Carson elaborated:

I actually want to see the conditions, I want to hear from them, where they came from, what would be for them the ideal kind of outcome, what do they think is keeping them from getting there? Who are their friends? Who are their enemies? And I want to hear from a bunch of people. That’s really how you form a solution as opposed to hearing from media outlets who are trying to distort it and be inaccurate.

It's little more than 60 days to Iowa, and Carson is still figuring out what to do about terrorism in the Middle East and ISIS. All Carson needs to have done is read a newspaper for the past four years to learn:

1) There are no "moderate" opposition forces.

2) Whenever we give weapons to "moderate" opposition forces, it winds up in the hands of ISIS or Al-Qaeda. Carson asks who their friends are--too many of their "friends" are radical islamists.

3) Many of the people in the camps are military age men, and yet they are not fighting for their homeland. They want to come to America. What does that tell us?

If Carson believes that talking to Syrian refugees will make him look smart to the Republican primary voters he is very much out of touch. To actually admit that he doesn't have a plan to take on terrorism, shows, as Rush Limbaugh also recently said, that he really isn't ready to be President.

I think it's time to cross Dr. Carson off my list. I think he would make a great cabinet member with a domestic portfolio, but not president, and definitely not in charge of foreign policy.

NYT says Middle Eastern Muslims, not Middle Eastern Muslim Refugees, commit terrorism


Everyone can relax now. The New York Times has produced a study showing that Muslim refugees from the Middle East don't commit acts of terrorism. The acts of terrorism are actually committed by Muslim Middle Easterners who enter America on other grounds; therefore, there is no reason to stop Muslim Middle Eastern refugees from entering America.

Marco Rubio implies if terrorists attack, Ted Cruz is to blame... not himself


Marco Rubio says that if there is a terrorist attack in America, it will be because of people who voted against NSA surveillance, and he has previously criticized Ted Cruz for voting against it. So he seems to be saying that future terrorist attacks will be on Ted Cruz's head. Additionally, one of his Super Pacs is running an ad saying that Cruz voted to weaken our ability to fight terrorists.
What exactly did Cruz vote for? Cruz voted for a bill that stops the NSA from collecting all phone records from all Americans. There is no reason for the government to keep details on all our phone records. Remember the days when the government had to show "reasonable suspicion" and needed a warrant to get our private information? Ever since the Bush administration that has been ignored and the government has been gathering data on all of us.

NJ Muslims celebrating 9/11 has now unhappened... and Ben Carson agrees


People can be forgiven if they don't know whether to believe Donald Trump's claim that he saw Muslims celebrating 9/11 in New Jersey. But I, a New Yorker who was nearly killed in 9/11 and had that day burned into my memory, saw it with my own eyes. There was a video aired of the incident. I remember seeing obviously Arab looking individuals dancing and shouting for joy on rooftops. There were less than thousands of them, but there were way more than a handful.

French Muslims offended by search for Muslim terrorists among Muslims


French Muslims are feeling discriminated against. It seems the police, in search of terrorist Muslims who killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more in Paris, are focusing exclusively on Muslims, and French Muslims are feeling discriminated against. After all, why aren't the police looking for Muslim terrorists in the Christian community, or the Jewish community? It's enough to make the Muslim community feel unfairly singled out.

The current state of the GOP presidential race


Ted Cruz is surging! Ben Carson is sinking! But all through this, Jeb Bush chugs along with his little five percent, the little engine that could (la maquina se puede). We need him to stay in the race. If Bush quits, all his support will go to Marco Rubio. They have a very similar base of support, not merely geographically, but ideologically. Both were big amnesty supporters for illegal aliens; the only difference is that Bush is still open about his continued support for it, while Marco doesn't dwell (and yet, Marco still, even today, quietly, wants to continue amnesty for "Dreamers").
