Are All You Breathless Trump Fans Paying Attention Here?

Because what he is calling for here should scare the piss out of you.
I'm telling you once again, the man is a Dictator waiting to happen.
He obviously has no grasp of the seriousness of what he is asking here.
We have been here and done that and it permanently tarnished our reputation without doing a single thing to make anyone any safer.
As far as I'm concerned, he is condoning torture on behalf of the United States of America.

Trump urges waterboarding and more after Brussels attacks


Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Tuesday that the United States should use waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques when questioning terror suspects, and renewed his call for tougher U.S. border security after the attacks in Brussels.

The billionaire businessman, in an interview on NBC's "Today" program, said authorities "should be able to do whatever they have to do" to gain information in an effort to thwart future attacks.

"Waterboarding would be fine. If they can expand the laws, I would do a lot more than waterboarding," Trump said, adding he believed torture could spark useful leads for officials. "You have to get the information from these people."

Waterboarding, the practice of pouring water over someone’s face to simulate drowning as an interrogation tactic, was banned by President Barack Obama days after he took office in 2009. Critics call it torture.

"I am in the camp where you have to get the information, and you have to get it rapidly," Trump said, adding "liberal" laws in Europe had made it hard to counter potential attacks.

Let that sink in for a minute.

You want to let this guy have control of the Levers of Power?

I mean Fuck Hillary, there is no choice there but Trump is proving to me to be exactly what I thought he would be.
The lesser of two evils is still evil.

  1. I figured out why he wants a wall so badly. It's to keep us all from running to Mexico if he's elected.

  2. Don't want Trump (or any of them for that matter)...

    But he IS right. Being Nice hasn't worked. Torture and pain and screaming might.

    I really don't think that we "damaged our reputation" with waterboarding, at least not with the people in the rest of the world that matter. Yes, the liberal weenies in Scandinavia whined about it, but they really have no power and they don't matter. (Remember, they gave Barry a Nobel Prize before he actually, you know, did anything).

  3. The basic rule of a Libertarian never give any power to your best friend that you wouldn't give to your worst enemy.

  4. 'Miguel Fernandez' is the spook who waterboarded Khalid Sheik Mohamed, 9/11 mastermind, and one of three total since 9/11.

    He said that was how they got the intel on the Pakistani doctor treating Bin Laden so the SEALS could wax his azz.

    We've been waterboarding SERE school (Survival, Escape, Resistance, and Evasion) pilots, SOF, rangers, SEALS, etc. for decades.

    Maybe they should sue Uncle Sugar for a 'hostile work environment?'

  5. I have NO problem with enhanced interrogation methods up to and including pushing bamboo splinters under fingernails. It's tit-for-tat as far as Muslims go. Hasn't American learned a lesson from the way the Japanese & Viet Cong treated American & Civilian prisoners?

  6. I see Trump as having done more to further the Democratic cause than any of the Democrats have, with his antics. I hope he pulls the useless guts from the GOP so they can quit messing around and do something. Is there really anyone stupid enough to vote for him? I am not a Hillary fan and I would be surprised if Bernie lives to be inaugurated, but the GOP just flat sucks. Libertarian, anyone?

  7. I'm waiting for proof that if we waterboard, then radical Muslims will start doing something crazy they've never done before, like beheading people.

    I may support Cruz, but I'm no Chicken Little, feinting feminist male or reactive RINO when it comes to Trump. Congress will be his checks and balances, he will have advisors, the law will pull him back from assassinating the entire families of jihadists, etc.

    This is all about Democrats -- and SNL and John Oliver and MSNBC -- succeeding at scaring Sunday conservatives who, despite their ridicule of those sources, secretly and wholeheartedly believe them.

  8. As long as video's of mulims are being made of them carrying a freshly cut off head I see no problem with any method used to extract information to stop them.
