What Trump should have said

…about ‘birther,’ tax returns.

by Larry Elder

Monday night’s debate moderator, NBC’s Lester Holt, asked Donald Trump why he “perpetuated a false claim that the nation’s first black president was not a natural-born citizen.” Hillary Clinton added that Trump “has a long record of engaging in racist behavior, and the birther lie was a very hurtful one.”

Trump defended himself by saying: “Sidney Blumenthal works for the campaign and (is a) close – very close – friend of Secretary Clinton. And her campaign manager, Patti Doyle … during … her campaign against President Obama, fought very hard. … And if you look at CNN this past week, Patti Solis Doyle was on Wolf Blitzer saying that this happened. Blumenthal sent McClatchy, (a) highly respected reporter at McClatchy, to Kenya to find out about it. They were pressing it very hard. She failed to get the birth certificate.

Obama issued $743B in regs

Since President Obama took office in 2009, the federal government has issued 600 major regulations totaling $743 billion, according to a new study from the conservative American Action Forum.

The Obama administration issues an average of 81 major rules, those with an economic impact of at least $100 million, on a yearly basis, the study found.
That’s about one major rule every four to five days, or, as the American Action Forum puts it, one rule for every three days that the federal government is open.

“It is a $2,294 regulatory imposition on every person in the United States,” wrote Sam Batkins, director of regulatory policy at the American Action Forum, who conducted the study.

At the current pace of rulemaking, the American Action Forum estimates the Obama administration will issue a total 641 major rules before the president leaves office, bringing the nation’s regulatory bill to $813 billion.

By contrast, President George W. Bush issued 426 major rules during his tenure in the White House.

Public interest groups often dispute studies from the American Action Forum, which they say do not accurately take into account the economic benefits of regulations.

Feds Mistakenly Grant Citizenship

…to Hundreds of Immigrants Scheduled for Deportation

This is sure to get the anti-immigrant crowd riled up.  A new Inspector General’s report found that the U.S. government mistakenly gave citizenship to at least 858 immigrants who were supposed to be deported or came from countries with high rates of immigration fraud.

The immigrants with questionable backgrounds were not identified by name but reportedly all came from “special interest countries.” Those countries include those that pose a national security concern to America.More

Muslims Justify Killing Other Muslims

…and the kafir or non-muslims.  There is lots of death within Muslim communities and coming from Muslim communities.

Those who claim that terrorism committed in the name of Islam has “nothing to do with Islam” received much ostensible fodder via the recent spate of terrorist attacks in Bangladesh, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia in the closing days of Ramadan.More
