    American Thinker ^ | June 22, 2016 | Elise Cooper
    Once again Donald Trump has opened a dialogue about a controversial issue. As he did with illegal immigration, he has brought to the forefront his desire to keep Americans safe by temporarily banning Muslims from entering the U.S. His critics are from the left and right, calling him a divider and a racist. Those in the Republican establishment hint at preventing the ban by any means, including threatening to sue Trump if he becomes president and issues the executive order. Too bad they have done nothing regarding President Obama's executive orders. American Thinker asked the chairman of Donald Trump's national...

    Folk, Our federal government has failed miserably in its primary objective among its few and limited powers: Keeping the American people safe. There have been close to a dozen terrorist attacks on American soil since 9/11. Islam is an ideology that cannot be reasoned with. I do not want to "understand" it, learn it, break bread with these people, or have them in my community. Aside from Israel, I do not care about the Middle East. Saudi Arabia and all these Arab countries are NOT our friends. Everything I learned about Islam I learned back during the Jefferson administration. Donald...

    Professional Republicans in the #NeverTrump movement continue to oppose the presumptive nominee selected by the GOP electorate and are now floating strategies to throw the election to Hillary Clinton. However, an examination of Clintonís campaign promises reveals that Republicans who are willing to thwart Trump in favor of Clinton will be complicit in electing a President who would seek to bring about the complete and, possibly irreversible, dissolution of our nationís borders. A review of Clintonís stated positions on the issue suggests she is perhaps the most extreme candidate on immigration ever to run for the office of the U.S....

    (Freedom.news) Despite the fact that presidents generally have the authority to ban anyone from entering the U.S., for a host of reasons, a group of Democratic lawmakers wants to change that authority in a bid to preempt a President Donald Trump from doing what he thinks is best for U.S. national security. On the campaign trail Trump has called for a temporary ban on admitting anyone from Muslim-dominated countries with known terrorist entities at least until U.S. intelligence and Homeland Security officials find a way to properly vet these individuals.

Scarborough would argue he was merely offering dispassionate political analysis--saying that Trump's chances should be taken seriously while others were disdainfully dismissing him. But for those of us who watched Joe day in and day out during the primary season, there seemed to be something much more than green-eyeshade analysis going on. Scarborough revelled in every poll and primary result favorable to Trump. Which makes Scarborough's statement on today's Morning Joe so strange. Joe...

Hungary was a popular pathway for refugees on their way to Germany during the fall. When the daily illegal border crossings were at 7,000 per day, Prime Minister Viktor Orban decided to erect a fence along the border to Serbia and Croatia. The result speaks for itself: When the fence went up Oct. 17, the influx went down to 870 from 6,353 only a day earlier. Illegal border crossing were steadily below 40 per day throughout the...

    How many more? Thatís all I could think this morning as news broke of yet another ISIS terror attack, this time in Brussels. How many more innocent men, women and children are going to be blown to pieces by these murderous bastards? How many more airports, train stations, sports stadiums, restaurants or concert halls will be obliterated in a hail of suicide bombs and bullets? How many more world leaders will wring their hands on national television afterwards and spout pointless platitudes about the Ďpoor brave victimsí and Ďheroic emergency servicesí? How many taunting, gleeful claims of responsibility will the...

    A Breitbart News review of State Department and Homeland Security data reveals that the United States already admits more than a quarter of a million Muslim migrants each year.To put these numbers into perspective, this means that every year the U.S. admits a number of Muslim migrants larger in size than the entire population of Des Moines, Iowa; Lincoln, Nebraska; or Dayton, Ohio.

    At the risk of being crass, we've said on several occasions that the Paris attacks, the San Bernardino massacre, and the wave of sexual assaults that have swept Western Europe are the best things that ever happened to Donald Trump's presidential campaign. It seems exceedingly likely that Trump had very little conception of what was going on in the Balkans when he stormed onto the political scene last summer with inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants. As luck would have it, just two months later, Europe's migrant crisis reached a critical tipping point when Hungarian PM Viktor Orban built a 100-mile...

    The drug cartel in the Mexican state of Guerrero demanded from Coca-Cola one million dollars to keep their distribution center in the region. Coca-Cola refused to pay the money. The cartel retaliated and began to burn down Coca-Cola trucks. The violence got so severe that Coca-Cola removed its distribution center. This story signifies just how powerful the narco state of Mexico is becoming, even to the point of driving out major American industries. To learn more about this story, and the political significance behind it, I spoke with Jorge Vazquez Valencia, the spokesperson for the Autodefensas, a self-defense group that...

    Stephen Miller, the senior policy advisor for GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, told Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon on Monday that Ohio Governor John Kasichís support for amnesty is more ďradicalĒ than even Hillary Clintonís. ďJohn Kasich has flown under the radar screen for months because he hasnít been winning any states; he hasnít been winning any delegates,Ē Miller said of the Republican candidate who is polling neck-in-neck with Trump in the crucial winner-take-all presidential primary in Ohio tomorrow. ďQuietly heís put together a string of statements on immigration so radical Jeb Bushís face would turn a bright shade...

    Gov. John Kasich defended Monday his support of an immigration overhaul that includes the legalization of nonviolent illegal immigrants, telling supporters on the eve of the Ohio primary that it is unrealistic to think that the federal government is going to boot illegal immigrants out of the country. The issue of illegal immigration has been a dividing line in the GOP presidential campaign, including here in Ohio, where businessman Donald Trump has vowed to finish the fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border and make the Mexican government pay for it, and promised to make people living in the country illegally to...

    One of Germanyís best known and respected think tanks has found the five billion euro cost of closing Europeís borders is just a ďfractionĒ of the cost associated with leaving them open and experiencing continued mass migration.
