GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump Says He Would Bring Back Waterboarding

Like him or hate him, you know exactly how he feels …

During his appearance this weekend on ABC’s “This Week” 2016 Republican presidential candidate was asked whether he would bring back waterboarding. Trump’s answer was yes, they don’t use waterboarding over there, they use chop off people’s heads. The Donald went on to say that waterboarding is peanuts compared to what they do to us and to what they did to James Foley. During the interview Donald Trump further stated he would create a database for all of the Syrian refugees to track them and he would provide surveillance on mosques. The Donald stated, “When the Syrian refugees are going to start pouring into this country, we don’t know if they’re ISIS, we don’t know if it’s a Trojan horse.”

Donald Trump thumbs up

Thumbs Up to waterboarding

A transcript of Trump’s comments:

“STEPHANOPOULOS: You also told Yahoo! News that we have to be doing things that were unthinkable a year ago. I want to get into what you had in mind. For example, do you think we should bring back enhanced interrogation like waterboarding?”

“TRUMP: Well, we have to be strong. You know, they don’t use waterboarding over there; they use chopping off people’s heads. They use drowning people. I don’t know if you’ve seen with the cages where they put people in cages and they drown them in the ocean and they lift out the cage. And we’re talking about waterboarding. We have to be tough –”

“STEPHANOPOULOS: So you’d bring back waterboarding?”

“TRUMP: We have–I would bring it back, yes. I would bring it back. I think waterboarding is peanuts compared to what they’d do to us, what they’re doing to us, what they did to James Foley when they chopped off his head. That’s a whole different level and I would absolutely bring back interrogation and strong interrogation.”

ABC News:

Donald Trump would “absolutely” bring back waterboarding as an accepted form of interrogation, he said today on ABC’s “This Week.”

Trump characterized waterboarding as a form of “strong interrogation” that is “peanuts” when compared to tactics used by ISIS against its hostages.

“I think waterboarding is peanuts compared to what they do to us,” the Republican presidential candidate said. “What they’re doing to us, what they did to James Foley when they chopped off his head, that’s a whole different level and I would absolutely bring back interrogation and strong interrogation.”

Trump also said he does not want to close any mosques in the United States but he does want to put them under surveillance. He previously said it may be necessary to close some mosques if it is determined “bad things are happening” in them.

When asked if he wants blanket surveillance across all the nation’s mosques, Trump said “strong measures” are necessary.

“The people that are involved in those mosques, they know who the bad ones are and they know who the good ones are, but they don’t talk,” he said. “We have to surveil the mosques.”

Of course the LEFT and the liberal MSM cries foul when they hear there will be a registry created of Muslim refugees who come to America who we have no clue who they are or if they are sympathetic to radical Islam and terrorism, but they are all for a gun registry of innocent law abiding citizens who rights are protected by the Second Amendment.

Donald Trump Takes Lead in Iowa, Ted Cruz Now in Second Place, Ben Carson Slips to Third


As reported at CBS News, Donald Trump has returned to the top spot in Iowa at 30%. Surprisingly, Conservative Sen. Ted Cruz (TX-R) has surged into second place with 21% and thanks to the racist and bias MSM, Ben Carson has slipped to third place with 19%. According to the polls, since last month, Ted Cruz has gained ground, while Ben Carson has lost ground, among some key voting groups in Iowa: evangelicals, Tea Party supporters, those who are very conservative and older voters. However, what is still trending is that all 3 candidates are considered non-establishment GOP political outsiders.

Make no mistake about it, the liberal MSM has performed a hit on Ben Carson as the Democrat media complex and Democratic party cannot afford to have Ben Carson as the GOP presidential candidate. It would forever destroy the Democrat talking point that the GOP is racist. Once again just showing the media bias that exists, because had the media gone after and questioned Barack Obama even 25% of how they have gone after Carson, Obama would never have been elected in 2008.

Donald Trump has returned to the lead in Iowa while Ted Cruz has now surged past Ben Carson into second place. Carson has slipped from a first-place tie into third.

While Iowa’s Republicans generally feel Trump is ready to be commander-in-chief, Cruz scores even better on this measure, boosted by support from very conservative and Tea Party Iowans who feel he is ready to assume the post. That’s more than say so about Trump, Carson, Rubio and Jeb Bush.

Since last month, Ted Cruz has gained ground — and Ben Carson has lost ground — among some key voting groups in Iowa: evangelicals, Tea Party supporters, those who are very conservative and older voters. And while Trump still leads among some of these groups, it’s Cruz who is ahead among the very conservative, and Trump leads Cruz by just two points among evangelical voters.

Cruz’s move has come directly at the expense of Carson, as nearly one-quarter of his voters switched.

Donald Trump Slams Obama on Syrian Refugees: ‘Is He Insane?’ (VIDEO)


Following the Paris terror attacks and the threats by ISIS to infiltrate as Syrian refugees, Barack Obama plans to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees in 2016 and we won’t have a clue as to who they are.  Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump quested the mental soundness of President Obama plans by saying,  What’s our president doing? Is he insane?”

Billionaire businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump is questioning the mental soundness of President Obama in light of the administration’s plans to allow Syrian refugees into the United States.

“Refugees are pouring into our great country from Syria. We don’t even know who they are. They could be [Islamic State]. They could be anybody. What’s our president doing? Is he insane?” Mr. Trump said in a short video posted to social media on Tuesday.

This president forgot a long time ago what his oath of office meant.

HUH? … New McClatchy-Marist Poll, Socialist Bernie Sanders Has landslide Margans over both Donald Trump & Jeb Bush


As reported at The Hill, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate and self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41 and also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.

I, personally, do not believe Sanders would win any such match up, but this country elected Obama twice so who knows. Also, it almost seems impossible that Sanders is even going to defeat Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Primaries. But seriously folks, if this is truly what voters believe, then the greatest social, political experiment in democracy known as the United States of America is over.

In a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41. In the McClatchy poll, Sanders also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41.

The huge Sanders advantage over Trump is not new. In the last four match-up polls between them reported by Real Clear Politics, Sanders defeated Trump by margins of 12, 9, 9 and 2 percentage points.

The huge Sanders advantage over Bush is new. In previous match-ups, the polling showed Sanders and Bush running virtually even, with Bush holding a 1-point lead over Sanders in most of the polls. Future polls will be needed to test whether the huge Sanders lead over Bush in the McClatchy poll will be repeated in future polling or whether the McClatchy poll is an outlier.

It is shocking that the data suggests that Sanders has a lead over Trump that could be so huge that he would win a landslide victory in the presidential campaign, with margins that would almost certainly lead Democrats to regain control of the Senate and could help Democrats regain control of the House of Representative — if, of course, the three polls that show Sanders beating Trump by 9 to 12 points reflect final voting in the presidential election.

Donald Trump Hosts SNL … “Because I Had Nothing Better to Do” (VIDEO)

Amid a hypocritical protest by the LEFT to squelch freedom of speech and equal time, The Donald hosted SNL …

Last night GOP presidential contender Donald Trump hosted SNL and as one of his Trump look-a likes (Taran Killam) quipped, “I think this show already got better by 2000%.” Truth of the matter is, just as the real Donald Trump predicted, last nights Saturday Night Live show was HUGE!!! According to Entertainment Weekly, SNL had a whopping 6.6 household rating on Saturday night, easily beating the season’s previous high: the 41st season premiere last month, hosted by Miley Cyrus and with a guest appearance by none other than … Hillary Clinton. The Trump’s overnight rating was 47% higher than the Miley/Hillary episode.

Donald Trump only hosted “Saturday Night Live” because he had nothing better to do.

The Republican presidential candidate made his second-ever appearance on the show, dancing to Drake and portraying his future in the White House.

“Donald — you’re the most talented guy. You’re brilliant, you’re handsome, you’re rich, you have everything going — the world is waiting for you to be president so why are you hosting Saturday Night Live?” he said during his monologue. “I didn’t have anything better to do.”

Trump also participated in a reenactment of the music video to Drake’s “Hot Line Bling,” dancing as a “tax guy,” and sang along to the now infamous chorus, “You used to call me on my cell phone.”

But of course the bias MSM and the LIBS for at the Democrat Media Complex controlled WAPO, reported that it was an over-hyped bummer. Because the WAPO is so unbias and truthful when it comes to reporting on Trump. Because it would be perfectly OK for a liberal to host or be on late night talk shows, just not Republicans who might just break the LIB myth that they are people too. As Ann Althouse opines,  “I get it. You hate Trump and you’re irked that he got the platform of “Saturday Night Live” to pose on — just like Hillary Clinton a few weeks ago and all the many other politicians who’ve had a shot at hosting over the years.”

Donald Trump’s highly touted and almost certainly inappropriate hosting gig on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” turned out to be an anemic and halfhearted dud.

Once upon a time, not so long ago, there might be a lesson to learn from Saturday’s boring and misspent episode — but that world no longer exists, certainly not where politics and TV intersect. Everything’s turned upside down. Bring back the old America, I say, the one where our preeminent vehicle for topical satire would have ably skewered a hateful, nonsensical, vainglorious presidential candidate, rather than invite him into the club and give him more of the empty-calorie media attention he seeks.

Listen to Donald Trump’s First Radio Ads of 2016 Presidential Campaign … “Politicians are all talk and no action.”


That is kind of unbelievable if you think about it, this is his first radio ads? Check out the two ads below. If there is anyone who knows marketing and how to get an effective message out to the American people, it id Donald Trump. In an age in which We the People are sick and tired of establishment candidates who are beholden to special interests and lobbyists, and both political parties are just as guilty, along comes Trump riding the wave of an “outside the Beltway” candidate … “Donald Trump is running for president because politicians are all talk and no action.”

The Donald also hits on the hot button issues of jobs, the economy, veterans, the First and Second Amendment, ISIS and illegal immigration … “You can’t have a country without borders.”

Republican presidential contender Donald Trump is releasing his first radio ads of the 2016 campaign.

“Donald Trump is running for president because politicians are all talk and no action,” a woman’s voice reads in an ad first played this morning on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.

The voice adds that Trump will “brutally and quickly cut off the head of ISIS” and “stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border. And he will make Mexico pay for it.”

A second ad, targeted at voters in Iowa, features Trump’s voice. “My opponents have no experience in creating jobs or making deals,” he says. “Obamacare is a total disaster. It will be repealed and replaced with something much better,” he continues.

“If the people of Iowa vote for me, you’ll never be disappointed,” he adds.

NBC/WSJ Poll: Political Outsider Ben Carson Surges Into the Lead of National GOP Race with 29%


According to a NBC/WSJ poll, the ultimate outsider and anti-establishment presidential candidate Ben Carson has surged into the lead with 29%, followed by Donald Trump at 23%, Marco Rubio at 11% Ted Cruz at 10% and Jeb Bush at 8%. Also, Carson polls at 50% as to who Republican voters select as their first or second choice. It is becoming apparent in many polls that Carson is trending to be the front-runner for the GOP. Even though, most national polls have shown Trump comfortably ahead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination since July, Carson has recently made strong strides in Iowa polls and some national ones. Also, according to the Politico, Carson is making huge strides in campaign fundraising.

However, how long will it be before the Democrat media complex begin their assault on Carson? Something the liberal MSM never did with Barack Obama when he ran in 2008 or 2012. And will they be called racist for attacking him as many were when they criticized Obama’s policies and liberal agenda?

Ben Carson has surged into the lead of the Republican presidential race, getting support from 29 percent of GOP primary voters, according to a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

That’s the highest percentage any GOP candidate has obtained so far in the survey.

Carson’s 29 percent is followed by Donald Trump at 23 percent, Marco Rubio at 11 percent, Ted Cruz at 10 percent and Jeb Bush at 8 percent. These findings are similar to a New York Times/CBS poll released last week, which also showed Carson in first place in the national GOP contest.

GOP Presidential Debate: NJ Gov. Chris Christie Fires Back at CNBC Moderator John Harwood: “Do You Want Me To Answer Or Do You Want To Answer?”… “Because I got to tell you the truth, even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude.”

CNBC Moderators show they are a complete disgrace again at last nights GOP Presidential Debate in Boulder, CO …

Who would have ever thought a NBC business channel in CNBC would have ever acted worse than MSNBC?

How bad are moderators when a New Jersian says that what they are doing and how they are conducting themselves would be called rude in New Jersey? But that was the tenor, mood and theme of last nights GOP debate as the liberal and bias CNBC moderators were more interested in listening to themselves talk, insult the candidates and just be down right nasty. Its one thing for a moderator is ask tough questions, but what CNBC did last night was over the top. You could actually feel the venom and contempt that the moderators had for the Republican candidates.

“John, do you want me to answer or do you want to answer?” Christie asked the reporter at Wednesday’s Republican primary debate. “Because I got to tell you the truth, even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude.”

Note to RNC, why exactly did you schedule this debate? And if you ever allow another one on this Democrat, liberal propaganda new channel, some one need to be fired.

Senator Ted Cruz Rips CNBC Liberal, Bias, Agenda Driven Moderators at GOP Presidential Debate (VIDEO) … “This Debate Illustrates Why We Can Not Trust The Media”

The question is now settled science … the MSM is completely bias and in the tank for the Democrat party.

At last nights GOP Presidential Debate on CNBC, Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ripped the liberal CNBC moderators and exposed them for the liberal, bias, Leftist, agenda driven, in the tank Democrat party propagandists that they are. From the very outset of the debate, the moderators began their snarky gotcha questions and seemed more inclined to insult the candidates and start a food fight than to actually have the American public hear how any of the candidates would handle certain situations and what their economic policies were.


Finally, Ted Cruz ripped the moderators a new one and let them have it … “This Debate Illustrates Why We Can Not Trust The Media”

 ”The men and women on this stage have more ideas, more experience, more common sense than any participant in the Democratic debate,”


From Real Clear Politics:

At the Republican debate hosted by CNBC in Boulder, Colorado Wednesday night, presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz lambasted the moderators, particularly John Harwood of The New York Times, and the media for their treatment and characterization of himself and his competitors.

“The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” Cruz at Wednesday’s Republican debate. “Everyone home tonight knows that the moderators have no intention of voting in a Republican primary.”

Cruz later went tete-a-tete with Harwood, a CNBC contributor, for cutting him off and wanting to move on.

“Congressional Republicans, Democrats and the White House are about to strike a compromise that would raise the debt limit, prevent a government shutdown, and calm financial markets of the fear that a Washington crisis is on the way. Does your opposition to it show you’re not the kind of problem-solver that American voters want?” CNBC anchor Carl Quintanilla asked the presidential candidate.

“Let me say something at the outset,” the Senator from Texas said. “The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media.”

“This is not a cage match. And you look at the questions — Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain? Ben Carson, can you do math? John Kasich, will you insult two people over here? Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign? Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen? How about talking about the substantive issues,” Cruz said to commanding applause from the audience.
