But most say the government not doing enough to protect US
West Long Branch, NJ – Donald Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US receives little public support in to the latest national Monmouth University Poll. In fact, more Americans believe that radicalized US citizens pose a greater threat than terrorists who infiltrate our borders. At the same time, a majority support sending US ground troops to the Middle East to fight ISIS.
Few Americans (32%) believe the US government is doing enough to prevent a future terrorist attack on American soil, while 59% say it is not doing enough. The public was more divided in January, when 44% said the government was doing enough and 49% said it was not. However, they are not persuaded by a number of proposals put forth in recent weeks to stop such attacks.
Donald Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States generates little support, even among his fellow Republicans. Just 26% of Americans are in favor of this idea while 67% are opposed. Majorities of Democrats (83%), independents (64%), and Republicans (52%) oppose such a ban. In fact, only those voters who specifically support Trump for the GOP nomination favor such a ban (61% to 29% opposed). Among other Republicans and Republican-leaning voters, nearly 2-in-3 (65%) oppose a ban on Muslims entering the country, with only 26% in favor.admin | Filed under: 2016 Presidential Politics, Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Monmouth University Poll, War on terror | Tags: Barack Obama, Donald Trump, ISIL, ISIS, Monmouth University Polling Institute, Patrick Murray, Press Release, War on terror | 2 Comments »

During the same week that his administration diluted the commitments required from newly naturalized Americans, President Obama in word and deed baited the scorning of American Jews. Let’s take a look at these issues one at a time.
On July 21, 2015, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services modified its naturalization policy to allow immigrants to become citizens while refraining from committing to military service if the country called upon them. With the stroke of a pen, the standards and obligations for becoming an American were lowered. Maybe the intention was to foster a bigger melting pot. A melting pot, the administration would like us to believe, where all Americans will be treated equally. A melting pot where no religious or ethnic group will be the target of government invective and stereotypes. A melting pot where no group will have its, even heretofore higher standards of, loyalty to the United States questioned solely as a function of their religious convictions.admin | Filed under: Opinion | Tags: American Jews, Barack Obama, David Wanetick, Guest columnist, Iran deal, Iran Nuclear Deal, Jonathan Pollard, Opinion, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services | 3 Comments »

This past week, during the National Prayer Breakfast, Barack Obama made absolutely offensive remarks that seemed to justify the barbaric acts of the Islamic Jihadist terror group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), who have beheaded and burned alive prisoners from all over the world, by comparing ISIS’s form of Jihad to Christian behavior during the Crusades. The remarks to which I am referring:
“lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
While I’ve read extensively about our nation’s history, slavery, and the Reconstruction, I can’t recall where anyone justified slavery in the name of Christ. In fact, American slavery is rooted in African slavery, which had been practiced in Africa for centuries before Europeans were even aware of it. And European involvement in slavery began when Islamic Jihadists invaded Europe and enslaved Christians just prior to the Crusades. Further, slavery is still practiced today in Africa and much of slavery’s history in eastern Africa is centered around Islam, but this president speaks solely to divide America, facts be damned.admin | Filed under: Opinion | Tags: Barack Obama, Christianity, Islam, Joe Schilp, Radical Islam, The Crusades | 4 Comments »
