TRUMP: FACT OR FICTION – with Senator Bill Hernstadt

My guest in studio is STATE SENATOR BILL HERNSTADT. We talk about the direction of the nation and if Trump is leading the trends or following them. Are Muslims really the danger or does it just make for good TV? Is Trump really addressing actual issues or is he just inflaming our worst fears for good TV? Can President Trump restrict any Muslims from entering the US? Religion is not listed on passports, so it seems that it would be impossible. However, during World War II Jews had their passports marked with their religion. Will Trump take us back there for ALL religions? …for Muslims? Comment or email or Facebook or just plain call in next Saturday at 9pm Pacific time. 702-257-5396 / 257-KDWN.


THE TRUMP HANDICAP Why a Trump nomination casts a 5-25% handicap on all GOP

In the last debate we saw what a debate looks like minus crying, screaming, pounding tantrums. Tantrums are difficult to listen to for prolonged periods. And, the American voters are reaching their limit. When we take a breath and see the whole picture we have to ask, “What do the pre-school antics of an adult do to the overall country?” Answer: The Trump Effect. Assuming a Trump nomination, the GOP will experience a heavy handicap in races all over the country. And to us a little seasonal football talk, “The red jerseys are going to have a huge point spread to try to cover if the party plans on winning it’s Capitol Hill parlay card.” Trump and Trump’s copycats have spoken their truth with relatively little backlash from a nationwide electorate. More importantly, these comments, philosophies and promises have not faced the full force and effect of a very capable Democrat National Committee’s attack ad campaign. This is deliberate, not accicential. This is strategic. Make no mistake, the DNC is praying, lighting candles, crossing their fingers, tossing coins in fountains…possibly sacrificing chickens if there was a chance that would help to keep the GOP primary going as it is. When…

“PC KILLING US? No. Hate speech is though.

The comedian Louis C.K. said in his controversial monologue on SNL, “I have mild racism. It’s benign. It’s not aggressive.” He goes on to say, “Here’s another example of mild racism. Say I’m at a hospital and the doctor comes in to treat me and the doctor is from China or India I’ll think, ‘Well good, good. More of that.’ It’s very mild racism.” I was at the Playland a few days ago with my 5yo son. Another boy came up to my son who was playing with the video game screen hanging on the wall. The boy demanded that my son move because the boy wanted a turn. My son said “no”. The boy then decided to reach for my son’s face, grip his cheek and claw down his face making it bleed. My son came to me telling me and pointing at the boy. Now let me just say that I am reasonable person, a kind person, an understanding person. I would never hurt a child. But, I had to calm and restrain my urge to strangle the little creep that just hurt my boy. I felt a feeling that I am a little ashamed of – to…

Nikki Haley, Republican governor of South Carolina, gave one of the best GOP responses to the State of the Union address. She spoke about the need for governing in the middle, shunning the noise masquerading as knowledge from the extremists of her own party. It took courage. It’s what leadership is supposed to look like. She spoke of the members of the S. Carolina church that after suffering the tragedy of the mass shooting, did not resort to extremism hate speech. Instead, they rose above the tragedy and put their character and strong values to work, urging peace in the face of violence. They were our better angles. They were our role models. Nikki Haley made remarks such as; ‘We need to recognize our contributions to the erosion of the public trust’ “While Democrats in Washington bear much responsibility for the problems facing America today, they do not bear it alone,” Nikki Haley said. “There is more than enough blame to go around.” “We as Republicans need to own that truth. We need to recognize our contributions to the erosion of the public trust in America’s leadership, we need to accept that we’ve played a role in how and why…
