[ASI] Who's Crazy - Trump or McCain?

Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

Liberal reporters are piling on Donald Trump over his comments about Senator John McCain. McCain started this fight by criticizing opponents of illegal immigration as “crazies.” McCain was a member of the “Gang of Eight” supporting the Senate amnesty for illegals bill.  He lost to Obama in the 2008 presidential election by failing to expose Obama as the Marxist he is.

Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson dissects the distorted coverage of this exchange and  notes that Trump said, “I believe, perhaps, he’s a war hero. But right now, he’s said some very bad things about a lot of people.” That was a reference to McCain calling Trump supporters “crazies.”

It’s no surprise that the Trump-hating media would distort this controversy.

What’s mystifying is that Rick Perry, the former Texas Governor, now seems to think he can make a name for himself by attacking Trump. Perry has declared, “I have a message for my fellow Republicans and the independents who will be voting in the primary process: what Mr. Trump is offering is not conservatism, it is Trump-ism – a toxic mix of demagoguery and nonsense.”

The latest Fox News poll finds Perry at 1 percent. By contrast, Trump was on top with 18 percent.

Perry is making a fool of himself, apparently in order to please the liberal media, and will go down in flames in the same way he did four years ago, when he forgot his talking points during a debate and blamed the lapse on pain medication.

In response to the remarks about “Trumpism,”  the billionaire businessman repeated his charge that Perry “failed on the border” when he was governor of Texas. He went on to say that Perry “should be forced to take an IQ test before being allowed to enter the GOP debate.”

Trump is certainly a master at the give-and-take, which helps make him popular. He can also say controversial things.

But it’s his positions on the issues that are giving him momentum over all of the others. On the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), he demonstrated knowledge of Christian persecution in the Middle East and vowed to defend and protect Christians under attack. He noted the evidence of how Muslims are being brought into the U.S. as refugees but Christians are not.

“With such comments, the Trump bandwagon continues to take on passengers,” noted one conservative commentator.  Perry isn’t the only Republican getting run over.

For America's Survival,

Cliff Kincaid, President
