There is two years of vetting before Syrians or others from that region are allowed a visa into the U.S.A.

Comment by Stephen on August 5, 2016 at 12:43am

Around 100 refugees could be moving to the American West thanks to a local group in Missoula who were inspired to help after seeing the photo of a drowned Syrian boy whose family had fled the conflict.
But people in the neighbouring rural county are not happy. A local politician told the BBC they want a guarantee refugees will not be a threat - and he warned of a culture clash between any Muslim refugees from Syria and the predominantly white local population.

And this would be Trumps vice president. Oh for crying out loud.

Donald Trump’s Washington Post interview should make Republicans panic

Log onto the interview. How can some Americans even contemplate voting for the Donald.

Richard Dawkins outraged that “accusing Bernie Sanders of atheism” is used to undermine his campaign

By Adi Chowdhury

 

Richard Dawkins has not minced his words when lamenting the deplorable perception of atheists that the world harbors. In light of the DNC email leak revealing that Bernie Sanders’ campaign was maligned and sabotaged by anti-atheist bigotry, Dawkins has voiced his “outrage” that being an atheist is clearly an impediment to garnering the trust of Americans.

The prominent atheist and intellectual tweeted his contempt for this smearing of Sanders’ campaign, demanding: “What kind of a country is it where “accusing” a candidate of atheism is assumed to damage his electoral prospects?”

 

This vigor is well-earned by the blatant bigotry of the DNC. One of their emails read, “[Bernie Sanders] had skated on having a Jewish heritage. I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”

The Center for Inquiry has also voiced their condemnation of this scandalous leak, reporting that they found it “appalling that anyone within the Democratic National Committee would casually suggest attacking a candidate for their alleged atheism.” The Center continued:

“Entertaining such a cynical and bigoted line of attack violates any number of basic American principles: It presumes a religious test for holding office, something expressly prohibited in the Constitution. It pits the majority against a marginalized minority group, intensifying the country’s already escalating divisions. It exacerbates the gross stereotype of atheists as second-class citizens or somehow less moral than believers, a stereotype atheists have been tirelessly battling for generations. Perhaps most importantly, it sends the unmistakable signal to atheist Americans that despite all of our hard-won progress for equal treatment, atheists are still not welcome, not “one of us,” not American.

Donald Bankruptcy

Please see video of the above link.

Donald Trump -- or companies that bear his name - have declared bankruptcy four times.

Trump has built an American empire from Las Vegas to New York with towering hotels and sparkling casinos. Forbes estimates he's worth $2.7 billion. But not all of Trump's business ventures have been constant money-makers. In 1991, 1992, 2004, and again in 2009, Trump branded companies or properties have sought Chapter 11 protection.

"I've used the laws of this country to pare debt. ... We'll have the company. We'll throw it into a chapter. We'll negotiate with the banks. We'll make a fantastic deal. You know, it's like on 'The Apprentice.' It's not personal. It's just business," Trump told ABC's George Stephanopoulos last Thursday.

A business declaring bankruptcy is nothing new in corporate America, where bankruptcy is often sugar-coated as "restructuring debt." But it might seem alarming to everyday Americans who can't get a bank to restructure their home loans. If you want to get Donald Trump hot under the collar, accuse him of declaring bankruptcy.

Doug Heller, the executive director of Consumer Watchdog, said Trump is the "most egregious, almost comical example" of the disparity between what the average American faces when going through bankruptcy and the "ease with which the very rich can move in and out of bankruptcy."

"Under the American bankruptcy laws, if you end up in bankruptcy because you're struggling with divorce or medical payments or a sudden change of income, it's a disaster. If you fail miserably with huge dollars involved then you just need some accountants to rework your books," Heller said.

The multi-billionaire touts his huge net worth and big business experience as qualifications for his possible presidential run. Trump recently bragged that he has "a much bigger net worth" than Mitt Romney, who he said is "basically a small business guy."

"I'm a much bigger businessman. … I mean, my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney's," Trump said.

The big business man has wrangled with big debt in the past 20 years. Trump's first visit to bankruptcy court was in 1991, when his Atlantic City casino, the Taj Mahal, was buried under a mountain of debt. The Taj carried a $1 billion price tag and was financed by junk bonds carrying a staggering 14 percent interest rate. As construction completed, the economy slumped, as did the Atlantic City gambling scene, soon plunging Trump into $3.4 billion of debt.

Can you imagine "The Donald" (sociaopath) negotiating with Putin, or other foreign leaders?

Donald said he would have the vice president lead domestic and foreign affairs. What does that leave Donald to do - host Miss America, or a defunct gambling house in New Jersey?
