    Every presidents first responsibility is to protect the citizens of his country by any means. Every American has the right to feel free from harm in their own country as well as to have defenseable borders. I do not want my country to look like Germany or any other European country that is overrun with Muslim migrants raping and killing women!

    My daughters safety in her own country comes before any immigrants desire to be here.

    Better put white Christian males in positions of power on that list of deportees.

    Evidence doesn’t lie.

  3. Joshua Rownd

    Oh please Connie. That sounds pretty racist and Christophobic of you!

    I guess you aren’t so worried about your daughter then JR or shall we call you pig or AP or Rev Bob or Yeshua Warrior? Funny thing that all of you are Dominionist and all of you have a (one) daughter. Statistically, if you were different people you’d have different children.

    When I look at the number of white Christian preachers, politicians, student athletes, and law enforcement officers who have been charged with rape just in the last ten years it’s obvious to me who is the greater threat.

    To really see a monster tell a white Dominonist male no when they want sex.

    Does this make me a racist? I don’t know. What I do know is humans need to teach their boys better manners. After all, lebians walk into a girls locker or dressing rooms and manage to control themselves. Why can’t the boys? Hmmmm.

    Hey JR, during the Second Iraq War the American female soldiers had to take their weapons with them and have other female soldiers escort them when they had to take a shower or when going to latrine at night because of fear of rape by the American male soldiers.

    All this Muslim immigration would not be happening if America had not support all these Iraqi and Iranian dictators at the behest of American business interests in the Muddle East correction the Middle East.

    Mr G,
    Maybe back in 2007, that is the earliest article I could find regarding this. Did you know though, female soldiers in the Israeli Defense Forces must carry their rifle with them 24/7 wherever they go to protect themselves from either being shot, stabbed, run over or molested from Palestinian Muslim men in Israel. Plus they can all take down any man with their weapon or with their hands, because all are trained in Krav Maga.

    “Maybe back in 2007.”

    Maybe? Probably occurring before 2007.

    JR, the Israeli military and police female personnel also face sexual harassment from their own male soldiers. You had about seven top police commanders resigning because they were harassing and molesting their female police officers: http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/fa/contents/articles/originals/2015/02/israel-police-sex-scandals-leadership-disintegrate.html

    Yeah, I all know about Israeli personnel trained in Krav Maga and I bet you some of those women have been using Krav Maga against their own male soldiers.

    Here is a story about Israeli women being suppressed by their own nation by both non-religious and religious Israeli males: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2011/dec/23/israel-treatment-women-democracy

    G, you need to know more about some Jewish culture, this is only done by the most ultra-orthodox (Haredi) sects of Judaism, and they are the minority in Israel. Israel as a nation is very secular right now, so women are on an equal plane with men.

    “Yeah, I all know about Israeli personnel trained in Krav Maga and I bet you some of those women have been using Krav Maga against their own male soldiers.”

    So, how much do you want to bet G? All I have to do is make a phone call to a local female friend who served in the IDF as well as contact my friends in Israel to see if you are right or not.

    “JR, the Israeli military and police female personnel also face sexual harassment from their own male soldiers. You had about seven top police commanders resigning because they were harassing and molesting their female police officers:”
    Consider the source here G, your link is for a very pro-Arab anti-Israel news website with “Some commentators have alleged Al-Monitor follows the agenda of the Iranian and Syrian governments and Hezbollah.”
    According to the Jerusalem Post, it was only the top commander who was indicted for sexual harassment – http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Former-deputy-police-chief-indicted-for-sexual-harassment-459541

    “So, how much do you want to bet G? All I have to do is make a phone call to a local female friend who served in the IDF as well as contact my friends in Israel to see if you are right or not.”

    So make your call or are you all mouth?

    Well according to Al Monitor, the other top cops had to resign or leave the force because of the sexual allegations. How do you explain that?

    “Pro-Arab anti-Israel news website with “Some commentators have alleged Al-Monitor follows the agenda of the Iranian and Syrian governments and Hezbollah.”

    And Fox News and all the other mainstream media are controlled by corporations and wealthy people who follow the agenda of the Republican Party, the conservative wealthy people and corporations and their people are not real journalists let alone producing real news? So what is your point?

    As Sir Humphrey pointed out in the TV show Yes Prime Minister, many newspapers cater to their readers’ prejudices: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGscoaUWW2M and in the UK, the media openly admitted their bias and prejudices.

    So what if they are the minority? Doesn’t mean a thing if they have control because they occupy key government positions or have their supporters in them.

    “Every presidents first responsibility is to protect the citizens of his country by any means. Every American has the right to feel free from harm in their own country….”

    Well, I have not seen our Republican presidents protect the American citizens from corporate malfeasance and white collar crime committed by wealthy people for all the economic damage for the last 47 years. Same for the Republican Congress as well.

    ” Israel as a nation is very secular right now, so women are on an equal plane with men.”

    Israel doesn’t seem to have an equal plane with people of different political ideologies because Israeli left-wingers are leaving the country now and Abby Martin was talking to a couple of guys who stated that the country is almost empty of left-wingers. That is not a democracy.

    “Pro-Arab anti-Israel news website with “Some commentators have alleged Al-Monitor follows the agenda of the Iranian and Syrian governments and Hezbollah.”

    Yeah and many small and medium American newspapers don’t spend much of their time trying to root out corruption (private and public sector) in their own communities. Why is that? Because much of their advertising revenue comes from those wealthy people who own the city and county and ran those areas like it was their own private kingdom. Or the newspapers are actually own by the wealthy people. In the book Slavery by Another Name, the American press in the Southern part of the USA play its part in covering up the criminal racket where Afro-Americans were charged with various Jim Crow laws and vagrancies laws and if they could not pay the fines, they were forced to pay them off by doing slave labor for both Northern and Southern American companies. Instead, they ran stories about how happy Afro-Americans were in the South and launch attacks against private citizens and any government official who tried to expose the dark side of the South. All this talk about a free press is a bunch of sheer nonsense the more I dig into the dark side of American history that I was never exposed to.

    “My daughters safety in her own country comes before any immigrants desire to be here.”

    JR, you need to blame wealthy white Christian males and females for loosing up the immigration laws in 1965, busting up unions and destroying labor laws by putting in Ronald Reagan and his wealthy cabinet people into office plus allowing American government to maintaining American business interests around the world for much of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Those are the reasons why we have so many immigrants in this country. You now have many corporate leaders complaining about Trump’s ban on the Muslim countries because they hire a lot of Muslims as workers in the high tech industries at the expense of the American worker.

    You worry about your daughter being raped? I don’t recall people like you complaining about corporations and wealthy people economically raping countries of their people, their land, their water, their air and their natural resources (including the good old USA) and then throwing them away when they don’t need them anymore.
