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.

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.

Ben Carson Surging in National Polls … CBS News/New York Times Poll Has Carson Ahead of Trump, 26% to 22%


It would appear that political outsider and former neurosurgeon Ben Carson has the political momentum in the polls. According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, Carson now leads Donald Trump, 26% to 22%. Sure its early and there is a long way to go, but this is significant. It is the first time that Carson leads Trump in a national poll. Earlier this month, Carson took the lead over Trump in Iowa in three significant polls, the Des Moines Register-Bloomberg poll, a Quinnipiac University survey and a Monmouth University poll.

Ben Carson has surpassed Donald Trump and now narrowly leads the Republican field in the race for the nomination in the latest national CBS News/New York Times Poll.

Twenty-six percent of Republican primary voters back Carson, giving him a four-point edge over Trump (22 percent). Support for Carson has quadrupled since August.

The rest of the Republican presidential candidates lag far behind in single digits. Marco Rubio is now in third place (eight percent), followed by Jeb Bush (seven percent) and Carly Fiorina (seven percent). All other candidates are at four percent or lower.

Carson has made gains across many key Republican groups. In a reversal from earlier this month, he is now ahead of Trump among women and is running neck and neck with him among men. Carson’s support among evangelicals has risen and he now leads Trump by more than 20 points with this group.

Carson performs well among conservative Republicans and those who identify as Tea partiers. Trump does well with moderates and leads Carson among those without a college degree – although Trump had a larger advantage with non-college graduates earlier this month.

New York Times: Ben Carson Edges Ahead Nationally in Times/CBS News Poll.

Ben Carson has taken a narrow lead nationally in the Republican presidential campaign, dislodging Donald J. Trump from the top spot for the first time in months, according to a New York Times/CBS News survey released on Tuesday.

Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, is the choice of 26 percent of Republican primary voters, the poll found, while Mr. Trump now wins support from 22 percent, although the difference lies within the margin of sampling error.

The survey is the first time that Mr. Trump has not led all candidates since The Times and CBS News began measuring presidential preferences at the end of July.

Donald Trump and Ben Carson Threaten to Boycott The Next GOP Debate on CNBC (Update: CNBC Caves to Demands)


The two outsider, non-establishment GOP candidates, Donald Trump and Ben Carson, have threatened to boycott the upcoming GOP debates on CNBC after the networked changed the rules in extending the debate time from 2 to 3 hours.The problem does not just seem to be the extension of the the time, but instead it appears that CNBC wants to add extra ad time so to make money. REALLY? CNBC is the business channel arm of the NBC, but looking ti make a buck off of what is supposed to be an informative Q&A with presidential hopefuls?


The political Odd Couple take it to CNBC

What would a GOP presidential primary debate be if it did not have the two front running candidates? Without Trump and Carson, CNBC can expect to have an audience of whatever the total count make up is the remaining candidates family and friends.

Donald Trump and Ben Carson are both threatening to boycott the next Republican presidential debate if CNBC, who is hosting the event, and the Republican National Committee do not change the stated format of the event.

“Neither Mr. Trump or Dr. Carson will participate in your debate if it is longer than 120 minutes including commercials and does not include opening and closing statements,” the letter, obtained exclusively by NBC News and signed by both candidates, reads.

They take issue with CNBC’s plans for a debate that doesn’t include opening and closing statements, and runs two hours plus up to another 16 minutes in commercial breaks. According to Politico, CNBC distributed a memo outlining these plans that indicated all candidates had agreed to them.

In the letter, the candidates write that “neither of our campaigns agreed to either the length you propose or your ban on opening or closing statements. In fact, neither of our campaigns were even consulted.”

UPDATE I: CNBC Caves to Trump and Carson debate Demands.

CNBC has agreed to limit its Republican primary debate later this month to two hours, acquiescing to the demands of Donald Trump and other GOP campaigns, CNN has confirmed.

A source with knowledge of the decision said the Republican National Committee was putting in calls to the campaigns on Friday morning to inform them of the new format, which will cap the debate to two hours, including commercials.

Early Friday morning, Trump tweeted that CNBC had agreed to limit the Oct. 28 debate to two hours.

“Fantastic news for all, especially the millions of people who will be watching!” he wrote.

CBS News Poll: The Outsiders … Trump and Carson Continue to Lead the GOP Pack


In the most recent CBS News poll, Donald Trump and Ben Carson continue to lead the polls in the the GOP presidential race. Try as the liberal and bias MSM might to knock down both Trump and Carson, they continue to be the two front-runners. Trump leads with 27% while Carson is second with 21%. Call them The Outsiders or The Odd Couple, Trump and Carson have tapped into the pulse of what is on the minds of Americans and upsetting them. Namely, anyone who is a politician and has their political power and aspirations ahead of We the People. Business Insiders makes an astute point, a key argument against taking Donald Trump’s candidacy seriously is evaporating before the so-called political pundits very eyes as according to this CBS poll, voters are stating that they are more interested in the race at this point than they were in the last election.


Donald Trump continues to lead the field nationally in the race to become the Republican nominee for president. Twenty-seven percent of Republican primary voters support Trump, giving him a six point lead over his closest competitor, neurosurgeon Ben Carson (21 percent).

The rest of the Republican field is in single digits, with Texas Senator Ted Cruz inching up into third place with nine percent, followed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio with eight percent. Businesswoman Carly Fiorina and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush follow at six percent each. Former Governor Mike Huckabee has also slipped considerably since the summer, from eight percent in August to just two percent today.

When Republican voters are asked who would be their second choice for the nomination, Ben Carson (20 percent) and Marco Rubio (18 percent) are the most mentioned candidates.

Among Trump supporters, Carson is the top second choice, far ahead of any other candidate.

Seven in ten Republican primary voters would support Trump if he became the party’s eventual nominee, though many would have reservations. Twenty-nine percent would support Trump enthusiastically, while 42 percent would support him with reservations, and another eight percent would only support him because he is the party’s nominee. One in five Republican primary voters would not support Trump if he became the nominee.
