The Right Opinion – December 9th, 2015



Donald Trump has really opened up a can of worms with his suggestion that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed into the United States. The left and right are turning themselves inside out to condemn him. Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan did his best to try to separate Republicans from the Trumpster yesterday, but says he’ll support the party nominee. I assume that means he’ll support Trump, if he’s the man.

It has been interesting to hear and see some people, pundits and politicians come out in favour of what Trump has said.

Pausing immigration in the United States has plenty of precedent. From the 20’s until 1965 there was no immigration at all in the United States.

Andy McCarthy from National Review was on Mark Levin’s show last night and described Islam in the following way.

Here’s more from McCarthy.

Unfortunately ‘discussion’ is now shouting down and maligning your opponent if you disagree with his or her opinion.

One more thing: Shouldn’t we be having this discussion in Canada?

I am starting to see comments online about how fast the Alberta NDP is moving on issues. Bill 6, climate change/global warming/extreme weather. I’m not surprised… Progressives will push, push, push to get things passed quickly. The faster they do things, the more off kilter the opposition. Expect a lot more from the Alberta NDP. Their time in power in this province is already running down and they will ingrain as much legislation as they can in the time they have left.

    It is a day where the Notley NDP government clearly has had enough of the bare-knuckles brawling, the political temperature ever rising as the aggravation intensifies.
    They want to get what they need done, they want it done pronto and then they want to high-tail it out of Dodge for a Yuletide reprieve.
