vitter memoDoes barring entry to the United States, based on religion, violate US principles?

According to Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas Jeff Sessions of Alabama, David Vitter of Louisiana and Thom Tillis of North Carolina, the answer appears to be NO.

 

 

In Senate committee today, the four Senators took the position that there is no violation of US principles preventing entrants in because of their religion. The issue has risen the forefront after last week’s terror attack in San Bernardino California and Donald Trump’s subsecquent call to end the Muslim’s entry into the United States.

The measure said: "it is the sense of the Senate that the United States must not bar individuals from entering into the United States based on their religion, as such action would be contrary to the fundamental principles on which this nation was founded."

Although these Senators are riding against the opinion of the media and mainstream Republicans, the substantial body of the party appears to be in support of Trump’s proposal.

According to a Bloomberg poll out this morning, “More than a third of republicans say “it makes them more likely to vote for him”

The online poll from PulsePoll was conducted by Purple Strategies on Tuesday.
According to Bloomberg, "Almost two-thirds of likely 2016 Republican primary voters favor Donald Trump's call to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S., while more than a third say it makes them more likely to vote for him.

Those are some of the findings from a Bloomberg Politics/Purple Strategies PulsePoll, an online survey conducted Tuesday, that shows support at 37 percent among all likely general-election voters for the controversial proposal put forward by the Republican front-runner."

Meantime, today, Trump has been shanked within one of the Muslim countries. His name has been  stripped from $6B Dubai golf project after his call for Muslim ban.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
