op ed review 9/13



THIS WEEK’S NEWS
Bernie Sanders overtakes Hillary Clinton in Iowa
Biden says he´s unsure he can commit fully to be president.

Hillary Clinton made a campaign stop in Columbus, Ohio Thursday, but only a couple hundred people turned out to hear her views on women’s issues

President Obama has directed his administration to prepare to take in at least 10,000 Syrian refugees next year.

Suicide of the West?  Chancellor Angela Merkel has said the "breathtaking" flow of migrants into Germany will "occupy and change" the country in the coming years. French President Francois Hollande said France would take 24,000 refugees and that quotas for EU states to relocate 120,000 migrants were being planned. Meanwhile, the flow of migrants across Europe shows no sign of easing.
A Syrian operative claims more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen have been smuggled into western nations – hidden amongst innocent refugees.
Muslim “refugees” in Budapest chanted “Allahu Akbar” and “f*** you” while others in Italy attacked an old lady and threw feces at bystanders as Germany announced that it would be prepared to take 500,000 asylum seekers every year.  The footage that TV networks won’t broadcast.
Video: Muslim “Refugee” Arriving in Europe Makes ‘Cut Throat’ Gesture to TV Camera
Donald Trump on the Syrian refugee problem “You have the Gulf States, tremendously wealthy….. - they’re not taking anybody. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain - these are tremendously wealthy - they’re not taking anybody! "Russia’s not taking, nobody’s taking. But we’re supposed to take?”
You can’t make this up….. A Bavarian town decides to house Mid-East “refugees” in the local grade school gymnasium. Then the school sends home letters with the female grade-schoolers, telling the parents to insure their daughters dress appropriately so as not to provoke the sexual inclinations of the Muslim men being housed…. “Revealing tops or blouses, short shorts or miniskirts could lead to misunderstandings.”

Even in the New York Times:  “Syria will be the biggest blot on the Obama presidency, a debacle of staggering proportions.”

PRESIDENTIAL RACE
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is heading to a Kentucky jail to support the county clerk imprisoned for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Another Republican presidential hopeful, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, had previously announced plans to meet with Davis Tuesday.

With favorables improving, unfavorables decreasing and two-thirds of the electorate now believing Trump can win the nomination, the latest YouGov National Poll shows Donald Trump dominating the rest of the field. This is the eighth consecutive regional and national poll with Jeb Bush in single digits; a devastating reality for the RNC/GOPe machine. The debate this week will be their final opportunity to save Jeb – the pressure is astronomical, and you can guarantee Fiorina and Rubio will be called upon to deliver the goods and take out Trump. Donald Trump, on the other hand, doesn’t even need the debate.

Earlier this year, we labeled Carson "the 2016 campaign’s most interesting long shot" -- but that long-shot is seeing a rise in the polls in Iowa, and nationally.

Ben Carson is taking off the gloves — and taking on Donald Trump. The retired neurosurgeon and Republican 2016 presidential candidate has finally begun hitting Trump following a spate of recent polls showing him gaining ground on the brash real estate mogul.

Trump mocks Fiorina’s physical appearance: ´Look at that face!´

Trump fires back at Carson: ‘Who is he to question my faith?’

For all the talk about Donald Trump allegedly driving minorities away from the Republican Party, could he actually bring people in? A SurveyUSA poll released Friday shows in a hypothetical matchup with Hillary Clinton, Trump is ahead 45% to 40% but digging into the racial breakdown of the respondents is revealing.

Donald Trump and the Revenge of the ´Low-Information´ Voters

Ann Coulter is firmly in Donald Trump‘s corner, especially where immigration is concerned, and she didn’t particularly care for Fiorina’s position on birthright citizenship.


Carson and Trump.  Both are first-time candidates who currently top the polls in the Republican presidential primary. Many voters praise them in the same breath as “outsiders.” But Ben Carson is no Donald Trump.

“Trump:  A Traitor to His Class”     Most candidates seek to define themselves by their policies and platforms. What differentiates Trump is not what he says, or how he says it, but why he says it. The unifying thread running through his seemingly incoherent policies, what defines him as a candidate and forms the essence of his appeal, is that he seeks to speak for America. He speaks, that is, not for America as an abstraction but for real, living Americans and for their interests as distinct from those of people in other places. He does not apologize for having interests as an American, and he does not apologize for demanding that the American government vigorously prosecute those interests.  What Trump offers is permission to conceive of an American interest as a national interest separate from the “international community” and permission to wish to see that interest triumph. What makes him popular on immigration is not how extreme his policies are, but the emphasis he puts on the interests of Americans rather than everyone else. His slogan is “Make America Great Again,” and he is not ashamed of the fact that this means making it better than other places, perhaps even at their expense. 
His least practical suggestion—making Mexico pay for the border wall—is precisely the most significant: It shows that a President Trump would be willing to take something from someone else in order to give it to the American people. Whether he could achieve this is of secondary importance; the fact that he is willing to say it is everything. Nothing is more terrifying to the business and donor class—as well as the media and the entire elite—than Trump’s embrace of a tangible American nationalism. The fact that Trump should by all rights be a member of this class and is in fact a traitor to it makes him all the more attractive to his supporters and all the more baffling to pundits.

IN OTHER COLUMNS
“A city with homeless on its streets is a city that has no love of its people. The so-called “progressive” view, that people have a right to live on the sidewalk, is not only legally devoid of any merit but is inhumane, indecent and dangerous. As is the case in many other policies — redistribution of wealth, social engineering, weak national defense — it’s a contradiction to describe this stance as progressive. It should properly be regarded as retrogressive. People living on the street, urinating and defecating there, marked the Dark Ages of Western civilization. In a humane, decent

GLOBALONEY
President Obama hiked to Exit Glacier in Alaska last week, with photographers in tow, to send the world a message: The glacier is melting. Obama blames it on the increasing use of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas, which he wants to restrict not only in the United States but worldwide. The photo op was designed to build support for an international climate agreement he’s pushing hard to sell, so far with little success. Trouble is, the president needs to get his facts straight. Exit Glacier has been shrinking for 200 years — since 1815 — long before widespread industrialization and automobiles. As the president ended his trip, he sounded the alarm again: “This state’s climate is changing before our eyes.” News flash, Mr. President: Alaska has been buffeted by cyclical swings in climate for thousands of years.

ARTICLES
Very few would have predicted on September 11, 2001 that the headlines 14 years later would feature an American president arming Iran; that there would be millions of Middle Eastern Arabs flooding into the heart of Europe. Or Saudi Arabia, while refusing to accept any refugees from an Islamic civil war in Syria, would instead offer to build 200 mosques in Germany, one for every hundred who has arrived to spare the Germans the trouble and expense of building the mosques themselves.

How Democrats Created America´s Social Caste System

Murder rates are skyrocketing in large U.S. cities, but President Obama´s progressive pro-crime policies and endless racial provocations have nothing to do with it, the New York Times predictably declared in a recent article. Nowadays Americans are being killed and maimed explicitly because of their race. Execution-style cop killings are becoming distressingly common. Killings and vicious assaults based on the skin color of the civilian victim are also becoming common. That any of this is happening shouldn´t surprise anyone who follows public events. For years media outlets have acted as uncompensated publicists for the Obama administration´s ongoing campaign to turn America into

WISE WORDS
"It is an object of vast magnitude that systems of education should be adopted and pursued which may not only diffuse a knowledge of the sciences but may implant in the minds of the American youth the principles of virtue and of liberty and inspire them with just and liberal ideas of government and with an inviolable attachment to their own country."
