My remarks regarding Ben Stein’s bemoaning the erosion of our first amendment rights.

Mr.President, We The People do not like what you, the Muslim Brotherhood and the atheists are doing to make one group more equal than others thru your politically correct policies that inhibit free speech and the freedom to worship as we choose. In America one group is NOT supposed to be more equal than others and yet thru regulation, litigation and intimidation you have done this. I urge you to rethink you divisive unconstitutional agenda. Appeasement and restriction of the first amendment are not the answer. Inclusiveness, tolerance. respect for all and enforcing our Constitution is. Inclusiveness, tolerance and respect work both ways. There is no room for theological supremacy or ‘speech laws” in America. There should be no “safe spaces” where speech is monitored by liberal progressive nazis in America. Our people should be educated and encouraged to think in a logical, fact based and common sense manner, not blinded and brainwashed by Progressive propaganda. . XXXXXXXXXXX
Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the first time this year, which prompted Ben Stein, to say, on CBS Sunday Morning,
 
My confession: I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejewelled trees, Christmas trees. I don’t feel threatened. I don’t feel discriminated against. That’s what they are, Christmas trees.
 
It doesn’t bother me a bit when people say, ‘Merry Christmas’ to me. I don’t think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn’t bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu. If people want a nativity scene, it’s just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.
 
I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat.
 
Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God? I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.
 
In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.
 
Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her ‘How could God let something like this happen?’ (regarding Hurricane Katrina). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, ‘I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?’
 
In light of recent events… terrorist attacks, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.
 
Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said okay.
 
Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.
 
Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’
 
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell.
Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.
 
Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.
 
Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
 
Are you laughing yet?
 
Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.
 
Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
 
Pass it on if you think it has merit.
 
If not, then just discard it…. no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what a bad shape the world is in.
 
My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,
 
Ben Stein

I thank Donald Trump for bringing immigration reforms into the public conversation

Gun control, open borders,mass data collection, reckless,incompetent, incomplete vetting of our immigrants and calling us bigots and racists will not fix our immigration problems and will not fix the terrorist, mentally ill and drug related mass shootings, either. We the People may not agree with Trump’s solutions but everyone is talking and seeking the right solutions and we thank him for starting this public conversation–Obama’s solutions and inactions are not the right solutions for American security. Securing our borders, stopping all immigration until we reform our Immigration, so that it answers our economic needs and refugee responsibilities, while working efficiently,justly and in a timely manner,—- Identifying everyone here and helping our new immigrants to assimilate and understand our constitutional liberties and social tolerance, will, however. Reforming our Mental Health laws so that it is easier to force mentally health care on the mentally ill who are a danger to themselves and other will, however. Stopping the drug trade and the weapons that come in from that same drug pipeline, will however. Destroying Daesh and the other Radical Islamists in Syria and Iraq will however. Supporting a national and international,counter narrative voice from the Reformers in the Muslim community who reject jihad, supremacy and political Islam, will however. The Muslim Brotherhood is NOT that voice. Obeying our second amendment and getting rid of the gun free zones will, however. Let’s try some common sense for a change. This continued ideologically driven divisive rhetoric and politically correct insanity is killing us.

Trump is the business friendly Obama

Trump scares me with his edicts. He would be king. The only difference between him and Obama is that Trump loves his nation and would always do what he thinks is best for her. However he has the same megalomania/egomania personality traits as Obama, only Trump is motivated by making a profit, making the better deal, where Obama is motivated by his leftist vision and dislike of America. Trump would be a benevolent dictator, but as we all know there is no such thing as a benevolent dictator, especially when one is as recklessly impulsive as Trump.  Much of what the Federal Government provides are state issues. I do not see Trump returning those services to the states, although he has said he would return educational policies to the states.

We don’t have a gun problem,we have a lack of respect for life problem&a mental heath problem

We don’t have a gun problem. We have a lack of respect for life and a mental health problem. We have a no common sense problem. We have a “Let no crisis go to Waste” problem with the anti-American leftists in our nation. Obama would do better to improve the NICS program,improve the mental health reporting, improve the Islamist surveillance programs and improve the immigrant vetting program. Immigrants do not have the same privacy rights that our citizens should have.  The shooter in SC was on the no buy list–NICS failed to stop the buy in a timely manner. Also, why are are non citizens allowed to by guns in our nation? They were not allowed to do so before Obama. The vetting program needs to be removed from State Department hands. They have cost lives too many times by choosing political correctness and global diplomacy over American security. The State Department has no common sense. Why are we not surveilling Islamic gathering centers&mosques–especially those that have proven to be home to Radical Islamists and Daesh fighters? Put Obama in that no common sense group, blinded by leftist ideology and familia connections. As for gun control. We have straw buyer laws. We have background checks, even at gun shows. Guns bought over the internet are sent to gun dealers for pick up, where background checks are done. If Obama had not raised the price of ammo thru tax and regulation abuses, Americans would not be buying in bulk off the internet. We do not sell fully automatic guns, better known as assault weapons. They may look like it, but they are not. They are semi automatic long guns. They are legal. Obama and the Dems are lying to us.  We have a problem, but it is not the gun. We have mentally ill people, terrorists and drug related mass shootings. Why are we not reforming our mental health laws so that it is easier to force care on those that are a danger to themselves and others? Why is it that mental health monies are always being cut at the State and Federal levels? The guns inside our inner cities are coming in the from the same pipeline as the drugs and other criminal activity. Why not stop that criminal activity? Why not wage a social media campaign against the barbaric supremacist political theology of the Radical Islamists? Why not give the modern reformist Muslims, who reject jihad and political Islam, a national and international voice. The Muslim Brotherhood cannot be that voice. They support the same supremacist political theology. They have Radical Islamist connections. Obama should not have Muslim Brotherhood advisers. Homeland Security should not have Muslim Brotherhood policy makers. You may want to ask private gun sellers and gun gifters to run background checks, but other than that, more gun control is not the answer in stopping mass shootings. Keep the background check cheap and most will willingly comply. No one wants a bad guy with a gun.  Registering our guns is not the answer, if you want to protect American liberty. Registration leads to confiscation. As a side note, the confiscation of guns after the hurricane in New Orleans is so dangerous to our continued liberty. Encouraging Obama to implement more executive actions is also very dangerous to our continued individual liberties.

Mr.President, you have lived the American Dream,but you will deny it to others?

Shame on you, Mr President. You have shamefully and recklessly stoked the fires of racism. division and grievance to advance your leftists goals. I don’t think America has ever had a President that does not think America is a force for good. I think the American people have become your whipping boy for your own inner ethical confusion. FYI–except for the inner cities,where the Democrats have used race to advance their party, we the people have left racism some time ago. We the people believe that the content of Character is our judge, our filter. Given that you grew up in an academic upper middle class family, I think you know America is not racsist, but you still will use is to inflame and agitate to create the chaos and instability needed to force your marxist vison on the land of the free, America. You have lived the American Dream but you seek to deny it to the rest of us. Shame on you. You will be reviled in the future.

Call our enemy, Daesh, Mr President. Insult this evil.

Mr.President, Why do you give Daesh statehood, let alone the levant. Why do you call them what they want to be but are not? They are a barbaric supremacist islamist political cult. Why do you give them respect and substance? STOP CALLING THEM ISIL OR ISIS. Call them what the Muslims call them–Daesh. Daesh may mean the same thing, but it also can mean a disparagement. Insult and marginalize this evil, call them Daesh, Mr. President. How many more people will be sacrificed to the inhumanity of Daesh? Why are we waiting? The sacrifice is too great. Destroy them, now. Give the moderate reform minded Muslims, who reject political Islam and jihad, a national and international platform. There has to be a voice to counter the Radical Islamic doctrine. The Muslim Brotherhood is not that voice. They believe in the same supremacist political doctrine as the Islamists.

We should not have the Muslim Brotherhood in the WhiteHouse and in Homeland Security as advisors and policy makers..

With Muslim Brotherhood activists in the White House and in the State Department as advisers and policy makers, as well as Muslim Brotherhood members in Homeland Security, is it any wonder we are not vetting Muslim Immigrants properly? Why hasn’t our President invited Islamic reformers, who have rejected Sharia Laws and Jihad, into his advisory staff and into his bureaucracies? Why hasn’t our President given the Muslim Reformers a national and state platform for a counter narrative to Radical Islam and it’s barbaric supremacist political theology? The Muslim Brotherhood cannot be that voice of sanity. They have too many ties to Islamists and they believe in the same supremacist political doctrine. Obama has invited the fox into the hen house and he has put our nation and the world at risk with his reckless policies. Obama is blinded to the existential threat of Radical Islam by his leftist ideology and familia connections.

We should be bringing the Christian and Yazzidi refugees here.

The Christians and Yazzidis have endured decades of Muslim oppression and now they face genocide by the Islamists. The Assad government, the Iraqi Sunni and the Shiite will not protect them. It is the Christians and the Yazzidis that we should be bringing here. They have no place to go. Even after Radical Islam is gone and stability returns, the Muslims will not give their lands and property back.. Obama is blinded to the existential threat that Radical Islam presents to us all, because of his familia connections and his leftist ideology.

Big Government will not allow us individual freedoms

Big abusive government will not allow individual freedom. We need someone as President, who will lead our nation, unite our nation, govern our nation within the perimeters of the Constitution, balance the budget and reduce the bureaucracies, sending services back to the states. I believe Dr. Ben Carson has the wisdom, intellect, , trustworthiness, ethical morality and the will to do all of the above. I believe Dr. Ben Carson can save this nation.

We will lose the Republic if we do not replace the taxcode and eliminate the IRS

Replace the taxcode with a 10%consumption tax on all goods and services, including exports. Everyone pays to support our government–all citizens, all immigrants, all visitors, all foreign students and foreign consumers. Consumer prices fall because business and corporate taxes are 10% also. No tax on funds to create jobs, build infrastructure and fund research,innovation and development. Our leaders and the IRS can never be trusted again to not use the taxcode as a political and ideological weapon against We The People. Our leaders cannot be allowed to continue to use the taxcode as a corporate welfare and crony corrupt conduit. The IRS is demanding too much control over our lives. It has to be voided or we will lose the Republic.
