Trump Just Doubled Down on Terror Comments by Calling on These US Laws to Be Changed

Hours after a deadly Islamic terror attack in Brussels, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump was asked by CNN host Wolf Blitzer to share his prescription for increased threats of violence in the U.S. and around the world. Building on several previous controversial statements, Trump confirmed on Tuesday that he wants to see members of the U.S. military permitted to engage in the torture of terror suspects.

Speaking specifically about Salah Abdeslam, a suspect in last year’s Paris attacks, the brash billionaire said he would “be talking a lot faster with torture.”


Trump went on to theorize that introducing, or re-introducing, certain intense interrogation techniques could be the key to fighting global terrorism. He did acknowledge, however, that there are some people for whom he believes torture should be off limits.

“You’re going to make certain exceptions,” he told Blitzer, “and exceptions on heads of state and some of these people, and I’m not saying we don’t do that. But we have a real problem and people don’t have any idea what’s going on” . . .

“We’re fighting by different rules,” he complained. “They have no rules or regulations and can blow people up, and have bombs so vicious with the nails and the glass and all the things come spewing out, blinding people and destroying people. And we have rules and regulations and we can’t waterboard because it’s a little bit of a tough thing.” (Read more from “Trump Just Doubled Down on Terror Comments by Calling on These US Laws to Be Changed” HERE)

    I’m with Trump on that. Waterboarding is too good for these Islamic thugs.

  • Too bad Trump didn’t address the genesis of Islam’s proliferation here in America:

    “…When the 18th-century founders replaced the First Commandment (found intact in some 17th-century Colonial Constitutions) with the First Amendment, America was transformed from a predominantly monotheistic Christian nation (a united nation under one God, Yahweh) into arguably the most polytheistic nation to exist (a divided nation under many gods, including Islam’s Allah).

    “It’s one thing to allow for individual freedom of conscience and private choice of gods, something impossible to legislate for or against. It’s another matter altogether for government to enable any and all religions to proliferate through the land and evangelize our posterity to false gods. This is what the First Amendment legitimizes. It is an unequivocal violation of the First Commandment and the polar opposite of the following First Commandment statute:

    ‘[Y]e shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves. For thou shall worship no other god: for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou … go a whoring after their gods….’ (Exodus 34:13-15)….”

    As Trump and others have pointed out, the killers are being allowed to murder the good men, women and children, but the good guys aren’t allowed to temporarily inconvenience the murderers with sleep or food deprivation, and waterboarding—-even though information could be gained that will save lives if such activities are allowed by the good guys. Winning the war against radical Islamic terrorists will take much more than those activities—-such as at least acknowledging who the murderers are—but many liberals in Europe in the US will continue to allow us to lose the global Jihad war until things get much, much worse. That’s pretty obvious. The political correctness inherent in the lib’s plan to bring tens of thousands of Muslims into the USA is pure insanity—but the libs will at least feel good about being politically correct in allowing ourselves to be killed by terrorists who have acknowledged that they will take advantage of Obama’s plan to kill us………And feeling politically correct is the most important thing for the Left.

  • GIVE TRUMP 1237 SO HE DOESN’T HAVE TO MAKE DEALS WITH RINOS.

    If we were to keep them over there, we wouldn’t be fighting them over here.

    Maybe, if mohammedans weren’t murdering us in our homes and businesses and train stations and airports, we wouldn’t see any need to torture mohammedans. Torture might be necessary as a stopgap to deal with mohammedans in our countries, but it isn’t a solution to what happened in Brussels, or Cologne, or Paris. Getting mohammedans out of our countries is the solution.

    .

    Keep out all mohammedans. Send back the ones already here. That doesn’t solve the problem of 7th Century pedophile devil worshippers blowing themselves up, but it solves the problem of them doing it here. No torture needed.

      Torture for the acquisition of information about planned terrorist attacks is not only necessary, it is absolutely required in the most aggressive means possible. You torture them until they are dying inside and either they give it up or they’re taken out! No mercy, absolutely none. In combat there are no selective fire fights. Seek and destroy, no holds barred, them or us! This is a clear fast growing combat engagement. Every muslim in America must be rounded up and sent packing immediately. The exception is the Christians who fled these beasts in their lands to find peace and safety in America!
      The prisoners in Gitmo who have been released then go out and engage in terror once again, you stop it by releasing them to a firing squad! Enough coddling already and the Congress should have ordered the Sargent of Arms to arrest the White House traitor along time ago for treason and sedition as well as wholesale violations of our Constitution. But instead, we’re a nation led by self-dealing cowards usurping the powers granted in the Constitution to further push our nation into the abyss! In the meantime Americans are becoming orders of magnitude more ignorant and self-indulgent by the hour while the unSupreme Court refuses to uphold the Constitution in far to many cases when their function is to uphold the Constitution, not try to amend it by judicial fiat! There is a method for amending the Constitution and the unSupreme is not it. Two thirds of Congress and Three quarters of the states unanimously! While it pains me to say it America is in the ICU on life support!

        I have no objection to torturing mohammadens, but if we keep them out of our country, we aren’t likely to need to.

        • ArmyCombatVet

          Good point but unfortunately saying it and thinking it is one thing but expecting a tyrannical government led by an impostor to act. Not going to happen, their leader is in our White House!

  • Marc Goldstone

    Silly Europeans, Silly Obama… We are at war with ISLAM and it will defeat us unless we end the policy of welcoming those that worship a cancerous doctrine that incites violence against all nonbelievers. The only cure for humanity is to outlaw Islam until it is purged of all the hateful stuff.
    Contrary to the political talking heads, the world is not a war with ISIS or any other subsidiary of ISLAM. We are at war with ISLAM itself and until that fact is acknowledged we will continue losing the battle. Until all Islamic refugees are sent back to the hell holes they are most comfortable in, the cancer of ISLAM will metastasize until western civilization is destroyed.

  • Goldwaterite

    Former CIA Director Gen. Hayden just stated that:
    “Obama isn’t ‘weak’ on terrorism; he just doesn’t believe it’s a problem.”
    THAT says it all.

    I am the first one in line to say there is nothing good about war or killing anyone; it is all evil. However, I too, am the first one in line to say that if you are going to do evil do it right and be proud to be called evil, as the Muslim terrorist are doing. There is no CIVILIZED rules of engagement when it comes to war or doing evil. To try to reason by saying we would be no better than the enemy for doing evil against them is a bunch of fake BS to make us feel better about ourselves. If you are going to be bad, be bad all the way and not part way. Blow the entire region out of existence and there would be no more terrorist issues. They’d all think we are nuts, insane and they’d leave us alone. So there!

    Torture? That is not American. We fought 2 world wars against people with his mindset.

    I AGREE WIT TRUMP100%

  • TonysTake

    Good for Donald J. Trump!!!! Someone needed to say something. Our Golfer & Chief was too busy swapping spit and dirty jokes with Cuba’s dicktaster.

  • Paul

    It is simply amazing and dangerous what government will do for votes (current and future votes). It is all about them and their self interest. I tell you what would fix it; have a terrorist attack one on the politician’s family and you’d see a change in policy. Until that happens, we the people are just good for taxes and votes and our lives are not as valued.
