Trump Releases His Plan for 2nd Amendment

One common criticism of billionaire businessman and presidential candidate Donald Trump is that he far too often speaks in vague generalities and rarely offers specifics about where he stands on the issues.

That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, as Trump just released his official policy position on his campaign website.

“The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,” the position paper began.
Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists both the government and the Constitution, noting that government didn’t create the right, nor can it take it away.

He also rightly denoted the Second Amendment as “America’s first freedom,” pointing out that it helps protect all of the other rights we hold dear.

In order to protect and defend that right, Trump proposed tougher enforcement of laws that are already on the books, rather than adding new gun control laws.
Citing a successful program in Richmond, Virginia, that sentenced gun criminals to mandatory minimum five-year sentences in federal prison, Trump noted that crime rates will fall dramatically when criminals are taken off the streets for lengthy periods of time.

Trump also proposed strengthening and expanding laws allowing law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves from criminals using their own guns, without fear of repercussion from the government.

Noting that many of the recent high-profile shooters had clear mental problems that should have been addressed, Trump proposed fixing our nation’s broken mental health system by increasing treatment opportunities for the non-violent mentally ill, but removing from the streets those people who pose a danger to themselves and others.

Trump would do away with pointless and ineffective gun and magazine bans and suggested fixing the current background check system already in place, rather than expanding a broken system.
Furthermore, Trump proposed a national right to carry, a national concealed carry reciprocity law that would compel states to recognize the concealed carry permits of any other state, exactly as drivers licenses from anywhere are accepted by all states today.

Finally, Trump would lift the prohibition on military members carrying weapons on military bases and in recruiting centers, allowing trained military members to carry weapons to protect themselves from attacks by terrorists, criminals and the mentally unstable, as we have seen recently.

This is great, and those who cherish our right to keep and bear arms should be pleased by Trump’s stated position on the Second Amendment.

Of course, liberal anti-gunners will hate this, but their opinion on the matter is of little concern to us “people of the gun,” of which Donald Trump is apparently one.

There’s a lot of buzz these days about Andrea Tantaros, known to millions of viewers as a host of the Fox News show Outnumbered. However, the buzz has nothing to do with her new book.

Tantaros, who was last seen on Outnumbered on Monday, is no longer appearing on Fox, and the network will only hint at the reason why.

“Issues have arisen regarding Andrea’s contract, and Fox News Channel has determined it best that she take some time off. She is still under contract with the network,” Fox News said in a statement in reply to questions about Tantaros, whose book Tied Up in Knots: How Getting What We Wanted Made Women Miserable has just been published.
Twitter’s theorists tried to fill with speculation what Fox News lacked in fact.

@FoxNews‪ needs to bring back @AndreaTantaros ASAP. Taking her off the air was punishment for not being a raving Trump hater,” tweeted The Kincannon Show.

Tantaros has not tweeted about her absence from Fox. However, she did talk recently to the Washington Times about her book.

“Everyone always hears about the benefits of feminism, but nobody talks honestly about the downsides,” Tantaros said. “If women are more empowered than ever, why are they more unhappy than ever? The book looks at the lies women were sold by the feminist movement: that we don’t need men — but that we should emulate them in our professional and personal lives — and the havoc this groupthink has wreaked upon the genders ultimately destroying respect, discretion, monogamy, decency and intimacy.”

Donald Trump Speaks on Foreign Policy


On the runway preparing for takeoff from San Francisco after his speaking engagement at the California Republican Convention, GOP presidential primary front-runner Donald Trump spoke with talk-radio host Michael Savage.Savage began by asking Trump to comment on the protests Friday morning outside the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Burlingame, where some 100 demonstrators blocked streets, chanted and waved signs with messages such as “Dump Trump” and “Racist rhetoric not welcome here.”

But Trump apparently didn’t want to talk about eluding the protesters.

Instead he responded to Savage’s question by reiterating his complaint about the primary system run by the states, which has allowed rival Sen. Ted Cruz to garner delegates in some states without a popular vote.

“Well, it’s terrible, you have Lyin’ Ted Cruz – he’s got millions of votes less than me, hundreds of delegates less, and they try and steal an election. It’s a rigged system,” Trump said.

“But we have so much more. I think we get it right on the first ballot, Mike,” he said. “We’re going to get it right on the first. We’re way over.”

Savage said he and some of his callers were “moved” by Trump’s foreign policy speech Wednesday at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., in which he laid out his “America first” vision.

Referring to Trump’s vow in the speech to revamp NATO, Savage asked him how he would make the other NATO members pay their “fair share.”

“Ask them, Michael,” Trump said. … “You gotta say, ‘Look, we’re not going to protect you.’ We can’t be taken advantage of anymore, Michael. In NATO, they have 28 nations. We can’t be taken advantage of, with any of these nations, getting protection and not paying what they’re supposed to be paying as for our agreement.

“All of that’s going to stop,” Trump said. “And so many other things are going to stop, that we’re going to make great trade deals, and we’ll make our nation rich again.”

Trump said bad trade deals with China and others have made America a “debtor nation.”

“We owe $19 trillion, and then the NATO nations, many of those nations – and I mean really many – they’re not paying what they are supposed to,” he said. “So they think the United States is led by maybe stupid people or weak people, and they won’t ask.

“But I’ll be asking for the back pay also.”

‘America first’

Savage recounted his remark to his listeners Wednesday after the foreign-policy speech that Trump’s “America first” philosophy was misinterpreted as isolationist.

He argued Trump’s policy is “based more on making America’s interests dominant, not subservient.”

Trump replied: “I’m not an isolationist … but I am a person that wants fairness for our country and our people and for our taxpayers. And we can continue to go on like this.”

Savage asked Trump about his desire to seek peace, prosperity and trade with Russia rather than provocation.

“Well, look, you know, Russia can do a lot of good for us,” Trump said. “I mean, when I heard six months ago they wanted to bomb the hell out of ISIS, and maybe they had other things in mind, also, because, you know, they have a different view on Syria than our so-called leaders, and, you know, frankly, our people ought to start rethinking their whole policy. But ISIS, they want to bomb, and we had people saying we don’t want them to bomb ISIS. And I’m saying, ‘What are these people thinking about?

‘We never walk from the table’

Making the case further for cooperating with Russia on defeating ISIS, Trump asked, “First of all, do you know how expensive it is?

“I mean, so expensive that Russia sort of left a little bit earlier, I think, earlier than they were going to – and I’ll bet you that was a cost problem. But, here’s the thing, Michael, wouldn’t it be great if we got along with Russia?

“You know, Putin said very nice things about me. It has zero influence. He actually called me a genius, but that’s OK. Has zero influence on me, Michael, zero,” Trump continued.

“But if we can make good deals. And you know what? If we can’t, I’ll know almost instantaneously, and I’ll walk from the table.”

The problem with the U.S. and European powers’ negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program, Trump said, is “we never walked from the table.”

“We don’t walk. We never walk, we just keep agreeing to whatever they want,” he said.

Savage contrasted Trump’s philosophy with President Obama’s, which he dubbed “America Last.”

Trump said in his speech Wednesday that Obama “gutted our missile defense program then abandoned our missile-defense plans with Poland and the Czech Republic.”

“He supported the ouster of a friendly regime in Egypt that had a longstanding peace treaty with Israel – and then helped bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power in its place,” Trump continued.

“Israel, our great friend, and the one true democracy in the Middle East, has been snubbed and criticized by an administration that lacks moral clarity,” he said.

Wrapping up the interview, Trump told Savage he was on the runway preparing to head back to Indiana, whose primary Tuesday is widely regarded as a must-win for Cruz.

“We are doing great there,” Trump said. “We’re getting wonderful poll numbers. We have unbelievable people. We have, as you know, Bobby Knight. He endorsed me yesterday, and he’s fantastic. A real champion, a real winner.”

After the Indiana, the primary contests moves West, culminating in California June 7, where, Trump noted, according to a recent poll, he has 48 percent of the vote, compared with 20-something for both Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

“So, it’s a lot of work,” Trump told Savage, “but the end result is we’re going to make America great again. And we’re going to make it great maybe than ever before.”


Simple Patriotism Trumps Ideology

After 16 years, Americans have grown tired of both conservative and liberal abstractions.BN-NT958_noonan_J_20160428175550

April 28, 2016 7:29 p.m. ET
The wind is at Donald Trump’s back, and it’s the kind that doesn’t lessen but build. Last week he won the New York primary with an astounding 60% of the vote to John Kasich’s 25% and Ted Cruz’s 15%. This week he swept the five-state Northeast regional primaries with numbers that neared or surpassed the New York results—54% in Maryland, 57% in Pennsylvania, 58% in Connecticut, 61% in Delaware and 64% in Rhode Island. He beat Mr. Kasich in Greenwich, Conn., the affluent enclave of the old moderate Republicanism. Amazingly, he carried every county in all five states, and every county in New York except Manhattan. With 10 million votes, Mr. Trump is on track to become the biggest primary vote-getter in GOP history. He did well with varied demographic groups, old and young, college graduates, rich and not.

This is the kind of political momentum that tends to grow. A political saying attributed to Haley Barbour is that in politics this is the dynamic: Good gets better and bad gets worse. Very smart analysts and reporters have been translating all these victories into delegate counts, which of course is the key question. But as I look at where we are I think: Get your mind off 1,237; get your mind on the wind at Donald Trump’s back. After all the missteps and embarrassments of the past few months, his support is building.

“I consider myself the presumptive nominee,” Mr. Trump said in his victory remarks. He is.

Nothing wrong with Mr. Cruz and Mr. Kasich continuing to forge on. If you added their votes together the other night, Mr. Trump still would have beaten them. But they’re imagining they still have a shot, and Mr. Cruz just brought in Carly Fiorina as a reinforcement. His admiration of Ronald Reagan is such that he even imitates his blunders. That is what it was for Reagan in 1976 when he picked a running mate before the convention. Desperate gambits are more likely to work when they don’t look desperate.

Here I note an odd aspect of this cycle. Candidates at this point, roughly nine months in, are supposed to be dog-tired, near the end of their personal resources, exhausted and, if they’re not winning, depressed. That’s how it usually goes. But Mr. Kasich is clearly having the time of his life and told me as much in November. Mr. Cruz told me the same thing last week, at a Journal editorial board meeting. I expected to see him tired and dragging. No, fresh as a daisy. Mr. Trump too is clearly having a ball.

I find their joy distressing. America is faced with overwhelming problems, the voters are deeply concerned about our future, and they’re happy little chappies in the cable news town hall. I think they’ve absorbed too well the idea of the power of the happy warrior. I would respect them more if now and then they’d outline our problems and look blue.

In my continuing quest to define aspects of Mr. Trump’s rise, to my own satisfaction, I offer what was said this week in a talk with a small group of political activists, all of whom back him. One was about to begin approaching various powerful and influential Republicans who did not support him, and make the case. I told her I’d been thinking that maybe Mr. Trump’s appeal is simple: What Trump supporters believe, what they perceive as they watch him, is that he is on America’s side.

And that comes as a great relief to them, because they believe that for 16 years Presidents Bush and Obama were largely about ideologies. They seemed not so much on America’s side as on the side of abstract notions about justice and the needs of the world. Mr. Obama’s ideological notions are leftist, and indeed he is a hero of the international left. He is about international climate-change agreements, and leftist views of gender, race and income equality. Mr. Bush’s White House was driven by a different ideology—neoconservatism, democratizing, nation building, defeating evil in the world, privatizing Social Security.

But it was all ideology.

Then Mr. Trump comes and in his statements radiate the idea that he’s not at all interested in ideology, only in making America great again—through border security and tough trade policy, etc. He’s saying he’s on America’s side, period.

And because people are so happy to hear this after 16 years, because it seems right to them, they give him a pass on his lack of experience in elective office and the daily realities of national politics. They accept him even though he is a casino developer and brander who became famous on reality TV.

They forgive it all. Not only because they’re tired of bad policy but because they’re tired of ideology.

You could see this aspect of Trumpism—I’m about America, end of story—in his much-discussed foreign-policy speech this week. I have found pretty much everything said about it to be true. It was long, occasionally awkward-sounding and sometimes contradictory. It was interesting nonetheless. He was trying to blend into a coherent whole what he’s previously said when popping off on the hustings. He was trying to establish that there’s a theme to the pudding. He was also trying to reassure potential supporters that he is actually serious, that he does have a foreign-policy framework as opposed to just a grab bag of emotional impulses.

The speech was an attack on the reigning Washington foreign-policy elite of both parties, which he scored as incompetent and unsuccessful: “Logic was replaced with foolishness and arrogance, and this led to one foreign-policy disaster after another.” Mistakes in Iraq, Egypt, Libya and Syria threw the region “into crisis,” and helped create ISIS. He described democracy-promotion efforts as destructive, costing “thousands of American lives and many trillions of dollars.” Our resources are overextended, our allies must contribute more, our friends don’t trust us, nor do our allies respect us. He called for “a coherent foreign policy based on American interests.” His interest is “focusing on creating stability.” “We must stop importing extremism through senseless immigration policies,” including a “pause for reassessment,” which will help prevent the next San Bernardino.

He positioned himself to Hillary Clinton’s left on foreign policy—she is hawkish, too eager for assertions of U.S. military power, and has bad judgement. This will be the first time in modern history a Republican presidential candidate is to the left of the Democrat, and that will make things interesting. It reminded me of how Mr. Trump, in his insistence that he will not cut or add new limits to entitlement spending, could get to Mrs. Clinton’s left on that key domestic question, too.

He certainly jumbles up the categories. Bobby Knight, introducing him at a rally in Evansville, Ind., on Thursday, said that Mr. Trump is not a Republican or a Democrat. The crowd seemed to like that a lot.

Those conservative writers and thinkers who have for nine months warned the base that Mr. Trump is not a conservative should consider the idea that a large portion of the Republican base no longer sees itself as conservative, at least as that term has been defined the past 15 years by Washington writers and thinkers.

We are fed up – It is time for America First

Stand and Deliver – Paul’s Message to Peter

What we learn before we turn eighteen becomes the common sense of our later life.  Just as the vast majority of people after careful consideration of all the candidates and the issues end up voting for the same party as their parents so too most people can never break free of the paradigm impressed upon them as they grew up.

Many people repeat the time worn phrase, “Those who don’t learn from History are doomed to repeat it.”  As a person who has read and studied History on a daily basis for more than fifty years one of the major lessons I have learned is that the general public never learn from History, mainly because they don’t read or study it.  Perhaps they were spoon-fed a few classes as they meandered through the American education factory but they never tried to do more than memorize enough to regurgitate at the proper time to move on.  What was presented was based upon biased agenda of whoever picked the texts and prepared the lessons.  The only way to get a broader view is to read and study.

Note how many people can give you statistics ad infinitum concerning their preferred sports team but are unable to tell you the most basic facts concerning American History such as why there were battles at Lexington and Concord, or what was the gun trade and how it impacted the History of colonial America.   Americans are woefully ignorant of History; therefore they have no context for the History of the future which is current events.  The news of the day is text floating in a vacuum.  Remember a text without a context is a pretext.  And all the many happenings of the day all become pretexts for the furtherance of the Progressive corporate state.

History forms the seedbed of the future.  If we can’t connect yesterday with tomorrow the study of History today is a wasted journey into futility.  We might as well read fiction as it is usually better written and more imaginative.

Here is a lesson from History: Socialism doesn’t work.  Look at the most spectacular crash of an empire in our lives: the sudden Christmas present to the world of the unexpected evaporation of that great prison house of nations the USSR.  Look at the rolling blackouts of Venezuela.  Look at the pathetic pictures of a once prosperous Havana now a slum frozen in time.  Socialism provides example after example, it just doesn’t work.

Winston Churchill said, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Margret Thatcher told us that the problem with Socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money. Ronald Reagan said, “Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.”  The way I see it, once it becomes obvious that robbing Peter to pay Paul is the foundational policy of the State everyone will change their name to Paul.

A basic truism of economics is that if you subsidize something you get more of it and if you penalize something you get less.  Using this as a lens, let us look at American society today.

We subsidize businesses that fail.  Look at President Obama’s green energy boondoggles. Thirty-four companies that have received taxpayer money are showing us why we end up paying Six hundred dollars for a hammer.  These white elephants have either gone bankrupt, they are laying off workers, or they are swirling around the bankruptcy drain.

The complete list of faltering or bankrupt green-energy companies:

  1. Evergreen Solar ($25 million)*
  2. SpectraWatt ($500,000)*
  3. Solyndra ($535 million)*
  4. Beacon Power ($43 million)*
  5. Nevada Geothermal ($98.5 million)
  6. SunPower ($1.2 billion)
  7. First Solar ($1.46 billion)
  8. Babcock and Brown ($178 million)

  30. Navistar ($39 million)
  31. Satcon ($3 million)*
  32. Konarka Technologies Inc. ($20 million)*
  33. Mascoma ($100 million)

*Denotes companies that have filed for bankruptcy.  As listed in the Daily Signal.

We penalize success.  Our corporate tax rate is the third highest in the world.  Because of this many of our most successful corporations are seeking to relocate to other countries with lower tax rates in a practice known as Corporate Inversion.  Some stock holders might call that due diligence.  Our wanabe Big Brothers call it treason.  Our Dear Leader followed his habit of ruling by decree and declared the procedure to be illegal. Afterwards he renewed calls on Congress to pass a law to prohibit the practice putting the cart before the horse constitutionally speaking.  We can’t build a fence to keep intruders out, but we can build a legal fence to keep earners in to pay for the very system that is penalizing them for succeeding.

The evidence that Socialism doesn’t work is all around us.  The cratered hulks of socialist failure abound.  Yet in America today we are told that the majority of Millennials have given up on Capitalism and embrace Socialism.  This shouldn’t be surprising.  If you receive a trophy for showing up it should not be surprising if you expect a trophy for showing up.

And then we have the phenomenon of Bernie Sanders.  An avowed Socialist who has never had a private sector job, never had a steady paycheck until he was in his forties when he was elected to public office, and was even thrown out of a Hippie commune because he refused to work.

Here is this near-do-well who has never created a job, run anything productive, or even held a real job who wants to penalize everyone who works to support everyone who doesn’t, and millions of Americans say yes with their votes and their donations.  If you need a visual for passing the tipping point Obama with his fundamental transformation of America, Hillary with her it’s my turn I’m a woman vote for me entitlement attitude and Goldman Sachs paychecks isn’t enough just take a look at Red Bernie and his fellow travelers.

How did it ever come to this?  We allowed our educational system to be captured by Progressives who indoctrinated generations of America hating, entitlement grabbing, special interest supporting citizens who have voted for getting more and more and more and willing to contribute less and less and less.

If socialism works, why don’t we just vote ourselves $100,000 a year, free medical, guaranteed retirement at 40, and a home in the Hamptons while we’re at it?  Just charge it to Peter, if you can find him.

One final question might frame the discussion nicely, “Who is John Galt?”

Trump finish line

#BUILDTHEWALL: 19,723 Criminal Illegals RELEASED, Guess How Many Murderers & Rapists Were INCLUDED?


You’re going to be shocked by these numbers. Is it finally time to build a bigger wall that will keep out as many of these criminals as possible?

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency in 2015 decided not to deport but release 19,723 criminal illegal immigrants, including 208 convicted of murder, over 900 convicted of sex crimes and 12,307 of drunk driving, according to new government numbers.
Overall, those released into virtually every state and territory of America had a total of 64,197 convictions among them, for an average of 3.25 convictions each, according to an analysis by theCenter for Immigration Studies.ICE also said that the group were convicted of 8,234 violent crimes.
Meanwhile, ICE said that it has also slashed the number of criminals arrested in local communities, according to the Center’s Director of Policy Studies, Jessica M. Vaughan.
“In 2015, ICE made 119,772 arrests, or just half the number of arrests made in 2013, 232,287,” she said in her analysis that also included a map of the releases.

While most Americans are complaining about Trump wanting to build a wall, here’s what Kenya just did:

Kenya has announced it will begin erecting a nearly 435-mile-long wall along its northeastern border with Somalia to stem the flow of jihadists from the Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab.
“This wall will help us check on people like al-Shabaab from crossing to and from Somalia. We will not limit movement of other people. There is a need for joint cooperation between both countries and our leaders in dealing with terrorism, which has affected us negatively,” Kenya’s Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery told reporters in Nairobi over the weekend, according to Defense News.

He reportedly added that “the security barrier consists of a concrete wall ringed with a barbed-wire electric fence and trenches. It will also have observation posts where electronic surveillance cameras will be installed to monitor movements on either side of the border.”
The Somalia-based jihadist group has been associated with Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) rival al-Qaeda. ISIS members have reportedly been fighting with al-Shabaab over turf in Somalia.


First lady brings up president’s birth certificate

It has been nearly eight years since Barack Obama was elected to the White House, but the president’s wife is now admitting she is still very bothered by an issue that has haunted her husband since he burst onto the national political scene: his legal eligibility to serve as president.

On Saturday, first lady Michelle Obama revived the issue of natural-born citizenship during a commencement speech at Jackson State University in Mississippi.

What do YOU think? If Trump is elected, will he re-examine Obama’s eligibility? Sound off in today’s WND poll.

According to ABC News, Mrs. Obama lamented the vitriol directed toward her husband over his term as president, including the “birther” conspiracy theory widely promoted by GOP front-runner Donald Trump just five years ago.

“And then there’s the countless times when that language gets personal and is directed at my husband – charges that he doesn’t love our country,” Michelle Obama said.

“The time he was called a liar in front of a joint session of Congress. The nonstop questions about his birth certificate and his belief in God.”

Like the reporting you see here? Sign up for free news alerts from, America’s independent news network.

As WND reported, a probe by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, found there is probable cause the birth certificate proffered by the White House is actually a forgery.

In addition, there remain unanswered questions regarding the precise hospital at which Barack Obama was born.

A photograph taken by the Kapi’olani Medical Center for WND shows a letter allegedly written by President Obama on embossed White House stationery in which he declares the Honolulu hospital to be “the place of my birth,” The hospital, after publicizing the letter then refusing to confirm it even existed, is now vouching for its authenticity, but not its content. The White House has yet to verify any aspect of the letter.
During her commencement speech Saturday, Mrs. Obama also complained about “anger and vitriol” in the political environment.

“We pay endless attention to folks who are blocking action, blocking judges, blocking immigration, blocking a raise in the minimum wage. Just blocking,” she said. “We are consumed with the anger and vitriol that are bubbling up, with folks shouting at each other, using hateful and divisive language.”

Get the autographed book that probes Obama’s eligibility like no other: “Where’s the Birth Certificate?”

The first lady also targeted Mississippi’s recently-passed “religious freedom” bill.

“We see it right here in Mississippi – just two weeks ago – how swiftly progress can hurtle backward,” Obama said. “How easy it is to single out a small group and marginalize them because of who they are or who they love.”

“So we’ve got to stand side by side with all our neighbors – straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender; Muslim, Jew, Christian, Hindu immigrant, Native American – because the march for civil rights isn’t just about African Americans, it’s about all Americans,” she said. “It’s about making things more just, more equal, more free for all our kids and grandkids. That’s the story you all have the opportunity to write. That’s what this historic university has prepared you to do.”
