Canada has pledged to bring in 50,000 Muslim refugees by the end of the year.  The problem is that our Canadian border is even more porous than the Mexican border. 

Muslims are our friends.  We don’t need to worry about them; they keep us safe.  Just ask Obama. 
Q. How do you feel about ABC News refusing to allow Carly Fiorina on the upcoming debate?  (Eloy ~ Tarzana, CA)
A. If she didn’t make the cut, she didn’t make the cut.  Now, she has some free time to “cut up.” 

Q. I’m really ticked off at the Republicans.  They’ve been doing nothing about ObamaCare except talk big talk ever since it was enacted.  In all of this time, they have designed no alternative plan on how to deal with the costs of medical care or people who can’t afford it.  (Satya ~ San Jose, CA)
A. I agree.  They can “talk the talk” but, refuse to “walk the walk.”  They need to take some stimulants.  

Q. What do you think about the shootings at a Florida strip club?  (Kerri ~ Portland, OR)
A. Always double and triple check to make absolutely certain your weapon is unloaded before you start to strip it.

New audio obtained exclusively by BREITBART NEWS  indicates that as the Iowa caucuses began on Monday night, the Ted Cruz campaign called precinct captains informing them that Dr. Ben Carson was suspending his campaign, and instructing them to tell voters they should “not waste a vote on Ben Carson and vote for Ted Cruz.” Those calls were placed after the Carson campaign had already clarified that Carson was not suspending his campaign.

It is highly likely that hundreds, if not thousands of Carson supporters threw their votes to Cruz as a result, diminishing Carson’s vote tally and putting Cruz ahead of Trump.  Now, political dirty tricks are just that, but I would categorize this Cruz maneuver as outright voter fraud.  He needs to pay a penalty, and I don’t mean 50 lashes with a wet noodle.    
Q. Is Obama a Muslim or a Christian?  (Leonard ~ Upland, CA)
A. I judge a man by his actions.  He backs Muslims and tells us we need to show them more respect, but he says absolutely nothing about the thousands of Christians who have been killed by radical Muslims. 

Q. Do you think we really have a chance of cleaning house in Washington?  Aren’t the corrupt politicians too entrenched and powerful?  (Dolly ~ Houston, TX)
A. If we stand together and stick to our guns at the polls in November, we can do this.  And, we need to. 

Q. How come there hasn’t been more noise in the media about the fact that we are now $19 trillion in debt and that the rate of increase is accelerating?  (Myrna ~ Kingman, AZ)
A. Shhh!  That information was probably contained in one of those Clinton emails that are too classified for us to know about.  Besides: who cares?  Our grandkids and great-grandkids can pay it. 

“Republicans and Democrats are obsessed with making sure that illegal aliens are granted citizenship.  The American people are not.  They’re concerned about jobs, the economy, debt.  They’re concerned about a plundering country. They’re concerned about a decaying, dying country.”  ~ Rush Limbaugh

Two significant things happened Tuesday: (1) House Speaker Paul Ryan had lunch with Obama, and (2) the Republican-controlled House could not muster enough votes to override Obama’s veto of a Congress-passed bill that defunded Planned Parenthood and removed the vast majority of ObamaCare provisions.  The vote was 241 to 186, but a 2/3 majority was required.  The House has 435 members, 246 of which are Republicans. 

Everyone in Congress needs to be replaced, regardless of party.  They may squawk different tunes, but they’re all in cahoots with each other and it is we who get the shaft. 
Q. Now Trump is calling the Iowa Caucus a fraud and demanding a “do over.”  What is your opinion?  (Milo ~ Susanville, CA)
A. I agree with him that it was unfair, but that was due to Cruz and not the State of Iowa.  Cruz pulled an absolutely putrid, dirty trick on Carson by saying Carson was dropping out, (which he was not), before the caucus.  Cruz also pulled a dirty trick on everyone else by sending out a mailer under Cruz’s name looking as if people were going to face some penalty if they didn’t attend the caucuses and vote.  I believe there should be some serious penalty for such lies and deceits and because of them, Cruz has moved himself totally out of consideration for me.  Pffft! 

Q. I understand there was a recent study which concludes that cat owners are more neurotic than dog owners?  (Chip ~ Cedar City, UT)
A. That’s the understatement of the year.  Pffft again! 

Q. I read that a McDonald’s customer in Utah was having some dispute over his order and pulled a gun on the employees.  I don’t think that guy should be allowed to own a gun. (Jewell ~ Longmont, CO)
A. I agree with you.  People with anger management issues should be on the list of people with mental problems.  Hmmm… I wonder if Trump carries a gun.

A hole was blown in the side of a Daallo Airlines commercial passenger jet flying from Somalia to East Africa.  A badly charred body ended up on the ground and two other passengers were injured. 

This sounds like terrorism to me.  How does an explosion occur in the passengers’ cabin?  Remember the infamous shoe bomber who intended to do the same to a jet flying into Detroit a few years ago?  Watch Obama come out with another attempt at more gun control. 
Q. I can’t believe my ears.  Hillary wins over Sanders in Iowa by less than half-a-percent and then she trots off to New Hampshire claiming that she shellacked Sanders.  What audacity.  (Jill ~ Tallahassee, FL)
A. That’s politics.  Sanders, however, is contesting the outcome and it’s close enough that he could prevail... especially since some of those precincts were decided by a coin toss.  But in the final analysis, what difference at this point does it make?  Neither one of them is really qualified to be our president.    

Q. I understand that some of the emails on Hillary’s server had names of CIA operatives and agents?  I also hear that just about anyone could have hacked into her server?  Shouldn’t she go to jail?  (Tyrone ~ Berkeley, CA)
A. Yes, yes and yes… in that order. 

Q. Ben Carson is hopping mad at Ted Cruz.  What happened?  (Art ~ Sacramento, CA)
A. Cruz put out the story on the eve of the Iowa Caucus that Carson was shutting down his campaign.  I’m sure a lot of Carson’s supporters threw their support to Cruz, Rubio or Trump upon hearing that untrue story.  You have to ask yourself if Cruz, having done that, is the kind of a guy we want in the White House.  I think he crossed the red line.

Going into the Iowa caucuses, Trump was in the lead in most polls, but he emerged in second place as the evening ended. 

The Donald needs to pause and reflect, to take stock of the whys and what nots.  Frankly, I think the time for the theatrics has come and passed.  He needs to cut the bull and get down to the business of defining his platform and overtly trying to unite the party.  He needs to stop campaigning against his enemies and start building some positive, proactive national consensus. 
Q. I understand a recent poll shows that 25% of government workers might quit if Trump is elected president?  (Hannah ~ Sand Point, ID)
A. Good riddance.  We need to clear out as much garbage in government as we can. 

Q. I understand Naghmeh Abedini served her pastor husband Saeed with separation papers the day he returned to his Idaho home after three years of Iranian captivity.  After all of her adamant support for him?  (Lindsey ~ Bakersfield, CA)
A. I'm guessing she’s found a better lay. 

Q. You see the ads all of the time about how Wounded Warriors does so much good for returning veterans who have various war injuries. But, I understand they are one of the worst-rated charities?  (Ted ~ Salinas, CA)                                    
A. That’s correct.  They have salaries to pay and all of those ads are not free; then they have conferences and parties.  Less than 50% of donations are used to provide services.
