Donald Trump Calls For Database

Donald Trump “would certainly implement” a database system tracking Muslims in the United States, the Republican front-runner told NBC News on Thursday night. “I would certainly implement that. Absolutely,” Trump said in Newton, Iowa, in between campaign town halls. “There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases,” he added. “We should have a lot of systems.” When asked whether Muslims would be legally obligated to sign into the database, Trump responded, “They have to be — they have to be.” Ibrahim Hooper, national spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, sounded incredulous when he was asked about Trump’s comments, telling NBC News: “We’re kind of at a loss for words.” “What else can you compare this to except to prewar Nazi Germany?” Hooper asked. “There’s no other comparison, and [Trump] seems to think that’s perfectly OK.” Rabbi Jack Moline, executive director of the nonprofit Interfaith Alliance, drew the same comparison Thursday night “My father was in World War II, and he fought to preserve America against what the Nazis were doing,” Moline told NBC News.

“This is exactly why there is an America, to not be like that,” he said. Trump: “Would certainly implement” Muslim databases. And “you tell me” diff from Jews/Germa: https://t.co/2FM6wReY6epic.twitter.com/l3UgsMvjlE — Vaughn Hillyard (@VaughnHillyard) November 20, 2015

Trump was repeatedly asked to explain how his idea was different. Four times, he responded: “You tell me.”

He also ignored a question of whether there would be consequences for Muslims who do not register into the hypothetical database.

Asked where they would be registered, the real estate mogul said Muslims would be signed up at “different places.”

“I’t’s all about management,” he said. “Our country has no management.”

Trump tied his reasoning for the database to the need to identify who is in the country legally.

“It would stop people from coming in illegally,” Trump said. “We have to stop people from coming into our country illegally.”

During a town hall that aired just before making those remarks, Trump reiterated his calls not to allow Syrian refugees into the country, saying bringing them “into this country is suicide. I call it the Trojan horse.”

Ben Carson, currently second in recent national polling, suggested Thursday morning in Alabama that trying to distinguish terrorists among Syrian refugees coming into the United States would be like having “a rabid dog running around your neighborhood.”

“Doesn’t mean that you hate all dogs, by any stretch of the imagination,” Carson said. “But you’re putting your intellect into motion and you’re thinking how do I protect my children.”

Trump would ‘certainly implement’ national database for U.S. Muslims

Published on Nov 20, 2015

Donald Trump on Thursday called for the creation of a national database to register all Muslims living in the U.S. to protect the country against terrorism.

“I would certainly implement that. Absolutely,” Trump told NBC News during a campaign stop in Newton, Iowa.

He continued: “There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems.”

Trump, who also said this week that he would consider shutting down mosques, told Yahoo News earlier Thursday that “we’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely” when asked about a national database for Muslims.

Those answers seemed at odds with a follow-up question from CNN’s Sara Murray in Newton. When Murray asked whether Trump would rule out a database for Muslims, he said he didn’t “know where you heard that.”

“Yahoo News asked you about it, you didn’t rule it out,” Murray said as Trump worked a ropeline after the event.

“No, I never — I never responded to that question,” Trump said.

“So would you not support it?” Murray asked.

“I never responded to that question, Sara,” Trump said.

He also declined to respond when Murray asked “what’s your view of it?” as he continued down the ropeline.

Trump has repeatedly suggested it would be “insane” to allow Syrian refugees into the U.S. for fear that terrorists could infiltrate their ranks and slammed President Barack Obama for his plans to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the United States over the next year.

“I think he’s a threat to our country. I mean he must have some kind of a thing going because, you know, when you see that he won’t even call them by their name, attack after attack after attack,” Trump said Wednesday on Boston’s WRKO radio. “It’s radical Islamic terrorism and he won’t even acknowledge it — it’s like they’re coming out of Denmark or something.”

Trump added that Obama “doesn’t have any clue” when it comes to defeating ISIS.

The Republican front-runner’s attack on the president came after Obama had slammed Republicans’ calls to stop admitting any Syrian refugees into the United States as “offensive,” “political posturing” and a “potent recruitment tool” for ISIS.

We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.””*

How the Media Smeared Donald Trump as a Nazi

by JOEL B. POLLAK

A story is making the rounds on Facebook that claims Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is calling for “ID badges” for American Muslims. The image on the story is of Jewish children wearing yellow starts during the Holocaust. Very frightening–and a lie.

Step 1: Seed. The lie begins with a Yahoo! profile in which Trump is asked, supposedly (the reporter does not provide his exact question), if he would “require registering Muslims in a database or giving them a form of special identification that noted their religion.”

Trump does not say yes or no. Instead, he dodges the question, and comes back to the question of monitoring mosques (which the U.S. has done in the past): “We’re going to have to–we’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” Trump said when presented with the idea. “We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”

The Yahoo! reporter, Hunter Walker (a hater of note), construes Trump’s answer as follows: “He wouldn’t rule it out.”

Step 2: Amplify. The story is picked up by CNN. Sara Murray asks whether Trump would “rule out” a database for Muslims–borrowing from Walker’s article. Trump is surprised, and tells her, truthfully, that he never responded to Walker’s question.

Here is their exchange, as reported by CNN:

When Murray asked whether Trump would rule out a database for Muslims, he said he didn’t “know where you heard that.”

“Yahoo News asked you about it, you didn’t rule it out,” Murray said as Trump worked a ropeline after the event.

“No, I never — I never responded to that question,” Trump said.

“So would you not support it?” Murray asked.

“I never responded to that question, Sara,” Trump said.

He added that he didn’t “know who wrote it,” referring to the Yahoo News article, and declined to answer a follow-up question from Murray about whether he would “support something like that,” referring to a Muslim database.

Step 3: Distort. NBC News’ Vaughn Hillyard confronts Trump: “Should there be a database system that tracks the Muslims here in this country?” Trump replies: “There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems. And today you can do it. But right now, we have to have a border, we have to have strength, we have to have a wall, and we cannot let what’s happening to this country happen any longer.” Hillyard asks: “But that’s something your White House would like to implement?” Trump: “Oh I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.” Hillyard follows up: What do you think the effect of that would be? How would that work? It would stop people from coming in illegally. We have to stop people from coming into our country illegally.” Hillyard asks if Trump would go to mosques to register people. “Different places,” Trump says.

It is clear from the exchange that Trump thinks Hillyard is talking about new entrants to the United States, presumably Syrian refugees. But Hillyard reports Trump’s answer as if he is talking unambiguously about Muslims already in the United States.

Step 4: Smear. Hillyard comes back later, asking Trump: “Mr. Trump, why would Muslim databases not be the same thing as requiring Jews to register in Nazi Germany?” Trump realizes Hillyard is out for blood. “You tell me,” he says, and walks away.

The story goes viral: “Donald Trump Is In Favor Of Legally Requiring American Muslims to Register on a Database,” writes Zeke Miller of Time, linking to Hillyard’s story at NBC. A proposal Trump never made is now an established mainstream media fact.

[Update: The Washington Post‘s Jose A. DelReal got creative, asking the Trump campaign “whether his proposals would require the creation of a special agency.” (The campaign, according to DelReal, did not respond to his query–did not rule it out, perhaps.)]

Note that none of these esteemed journalists bothers to question their own assumptions, or to ask Trump precisely whether he is talking about American citizens or about foreign nationals. They chase their own questions down a broken telephone line.

Step 5: Nazi. Now the dregs of the Internet begin to play up what Yahoo!-CNN-NBC have produced, with Raw Story reporting: “Trump crosses the Nazi line: Maybe Muslims should wear special ID badges.”

He never said that–but at this stage, who cares.

Is Donald Trump Serious About Registering Muslims?

Asked how ideas he has endorsed would be different from Nazi enrollment of Jews, the Republican frontrunner simply said, “You tell me.”

Being Donald Trump means, among other things, never backing down and never saying you’re sorry. He is a Mitt Romney book title come to life.

On Thursday, Yahoo News published an interview in which Trump seemed to assent to reporter Hunter Walker’s suggestions of requiring Muslims to register in a database or giving them a form of special identification attached to their religion. Walker wrote, “He wouldn’t rule it out.” Trump’s own comments were much vaguer: “We’re going to have to—we’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely. We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”

Trump’s defenders, and some folks who also aren’t Trump defenders, felt this was a little unfair. After all, Walker had fed the ideas to Trump. Were they really Trump’s? It doesn’t seem like too much to ask that Trump repudiate ideas like this, but gaffes happen.

Trump demolished that defense Thursday night. He declined the chance to walk back his comments. At an event in Newton, Iowa, NBC asked him whether there should be a database to track Muslims. “There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems,” he said.

Then, a reporter asked him how such a system would be different from Nazi Germany mandating the registration of Jews. “You tell me, you tell me. Why don’t you tell me,” Trump replied.

Trump sure doesn’t lack political courage. It’s not uncommon for politicians and operatives to accuse their rivals of espousing Nazi-like ideologies, but it’s hard to remember a time when a supposedly mainstream candidate had no interest in differentiating ideas he’s endorsed from those of the Nazis.

Perhaps not coincidentally, the U.S. Holocaust Museum waded into the debate with a press release on Thursday:

Acutely aware of the consequences to Jews who were unable to flee Nazism, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum looks with concern upon the current refugee crisis. While recognizing that security concerns must be fully addressed, we should not turn our backs on the thousands of legitimate refugees.

The Museum calls on public figures and citizens to avoid condemningtoday’s refugees as a group. It is important to remember that many are fleeing because they have been targeted by the Assad regime and ISIS for persecution and in some cases elimination on the basis of their identity.

Trump’s antics would seem to be politically suicidal. Who wants to vote for the guy who can’t say how he’d be different from the Nazis? But throughout the campaign, Trump has defied every expectation about what a candidate could say without being banished from polite society, much less the leading position in the Republican Party’s nomination contest. Like clockwork, an NBC poll released Friday morning finds Trump retaking the lead by a wide margin over the balance of the GOP field.

Update: Trump tweets Friday afternoon that these aren’t his ideas; they came from someone else:

 

But does he still think they’re good ideas? He hasn’t said anything to suggest otherwise.

Trump says he would ‘absolutely’ implement Muslim database

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump voiced support Thursday evening for creating a mandatory database to track Muslims in the United States — the latest in an escalating series of responses following the deadly attacks in Paris.

“I would certainly implement that. Absolutely,” Trump told an NBC News reporter between campaign events in Newton, Iowa, according to video posted on MSNBC.com.

He said Muslims would be signed up at “different places,” adding: “It’s all about management.”

Asked whether registering would be mandatory, Trump responded: “They have to be.”

The latest comments come less than a week after the deadly attacks on a concert hall, sports stadium and restaurants in Paris that have elevated fears of attacks in in the U.S. and prompted calls for new restrictions on Syrian refugees fleeing their war-torn country.

While some of his rivals have been chastised by the president for suggesting that Christian Syrian refugees be given preference over Muslims, Trump has gone further in his rhetoric, advocating new restrictions on civil liberties and enhanced surveillance activities, including inside mosques.

He said earlier this week that the country was “going to have no choice” but to close certain mosques because “really bad things are happening, and they’re happening fast.”

The first reference to the database idea came in an interview with Yahoo News published earlier Thursday in which the billionaire real estate mogul did not reject the idea of requiring Muslims to register in a database or giving them special identification cards noting their religion.

“We’re going to have to — we’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” Trump told Yahoo News.

He also suggested he would consider warrantless searches, according to the outlet, saying: “We’re going to have to do things that we never did before.”

Asked by reporters Thursday night to explain his Yahoo comments, Trump suggested his response had been misconstrued. “I never responded to that question,” he said.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations issued a statement Thursday condemning Trump for what the group described as “Islamophobic and unconstitutional” comments targeting American Muslims and Syrian refugees.

They also criticized Trump rival Ben Carson, who on Thursday compared blocking potential terrorists posing as Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. to handling a rabid dog.

“If there’s a rabid dog running around in your neighborhood, you’re probably not going to assume something good about that dog,” Carson told reporters at a campaign stops in Alabama. “It doesn’t mean you hate all dogs, but you’re putting your intellect into motion.”

“By mainstreaming Islamophobic and unconstitutional policies, Donald Trump and Ben Carson are contributing to an already toxic environment that may be difficult to correct once their political ambitions have been satisfied,” CAIR’s Robert McCaw said in a statement.

Trump was in Iowa Thursday for a televised question-and-answer session hosted by WHO-TV at the Des Moines Area Community College. At a rally after answering questions, Trump took a few shots at his fellow candidates. He said Carson’s campaign was in “freefall” and said Sen. Marco Rubio “never shows up to vote because he’s campaigning.”

Also Thursday evening, New Day for America, a super PAC supporting Ohio Gov. John Kasich, announced plans to launch a $2.5 million ad campaign targeting Trump.

“There’s a growing consensus that someone has to do something to stop Donald Trump,” said Matt David, a spokesman for the group, who said the campaign would include television, radio, mail and digital ads in New Hampshire.

Trump responded to the news, which was first reported by Politico, by unloading a dozen rapid-fire tweets mocking Kasich’s polling and debate performances and threatened to “sue him just for fun!” if the ads aren’t truthful.

Kasich responded with his own flurry of tweets aimed at Trump.

Trump rivals decry his call for registering US Muslims

Republican presidential candidates swiftly condemned Donald Trump’s call for requiring Muslims in the United States to register in a national database, drawing a sharp distinction Friday with the GOP front-runner.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called Trump’s proposal “abhorrent.” Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Trump was trying to “divide people.” And Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has largely avoided criticizing Trump throughout the 2016 campaign, said that while he was a fan of the billionaire businessman, “I’m not a fan of government registries of American citizens.”

“The First Amendment protects religious liberty, and I’ve spent the past several decades defending the religious liberty of every American,” Cruz told reporters in Sioux City, Iowa.

The rebuke followed Trump’s call Thursday for a mandatory database to track Muslims in the U.S. In a video posted on MSNBC.com, Trump was asked whether Muslims would be required to register. He replied, “They have to be.”

On Friday, Trump said on Twitter that he didn’t suggest creating such a database but instead was answering a question from a reporter about the idea. However, he did not disavow the prospect of a database on social media or at an event Friday morning.

Civil liberties experts said a database for Muslims would be unconstitutional on several counts, while the libertarian Cato Institute’s Ilya Shapiro said the idea also violates basic privacy and liberty rights.

Marci Hamilton, a Yeshiva University legal expert on religious liberty, said requiring Muslims to register appears to be a clear violation of the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom.

“What the First Amendment does and what it should do is drive the government to use neutral criteria,” Hamilton said. “You can use neutral criteria to identify terrorists. What it can’t do is engage in one-religion bashing. That won’t fly in any court.”

Meanwhile, the Anti-Defamation League in New York called Trump’s proposal “deeply troubling and reminiscent of darker days in American history when others were singled out for scapegoating.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations condemned as “Islamophobic” comments from both Trump and fellow GOP candidate Ben Carson, who on Thursday compared blocking potential terrorists posing as Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. to handling a rabid dog.

“If there’s a rabid dog running around in your neighborhood, you’re probably not going to assume something good about that dog,” Carson told in Alabama. “It doesn’t mean you hate all dogs, but you’re putting your intellect into motion.”

Said CAIR’s Robert McCaw said in a statement, “Donald Trump and Ben Carson are contributing to an already toxic environment that may be difficult to correct once their political ambitions have been satisfied.”

In New Hampshire on Friday, Carson said the U.S. should have a database on “every foreigner who comes into this country,” but he rejected the idea of tracking U.S. citizens based on their religion.

“One of the hallmarks of America is that we treat everybody the same,” he said. “If we’re just going to pick out a particular group of people based on their religion, based on their race, based on some other thing, that’s setting a pretty dangerous precedent.”

The controversy followed the attacks in Paris that killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more. The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility, elevating fears of attacks in the U.S. and prompting calls for new restrictions on refugees fleeing war-torn Syria.

Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton took to Twitter Friday and challenged all Republican candidates to disavow Trump’s comments. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders called Trump’s words “outrageous and bigoted.”

“This is shocking rhetoric,” Clinton wrote. “It should be denounced by all seeking to lead this country.”

Several did just that.

“You’re talking about internment, you’re talking about closing mosques, you’re talking about registering people, and that’s just wrong,” Bush said Friday on CNBC.

A spokesman for Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said the candidate “does not support databases based on one’s religion.”

Kasich, the Ohio governor, said requiring people to register with the federal government because of their religion “strikes against all that we have believed in our nation’s history.” Kasich had faced criticism following the Paris shooting for saying he would set up an agency with a mandate to promote what he called “Judeo-Christian values” overseas to counter Islamist propaganda.

Trump spoke Thursday a few hours after the House passed legislation essentially barring Syrian and Iraqi refugees from the United States. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has slotted the bill for possible Senate consideration, though it’s unclear whether the chamber could get enough votes to override a veto by President Barack Obama, who opposes the measure.

The unified pushback against Trump was rare. Republicans have vacillated in their handling of other inflammatory comments from him, wary of alienating his supporters but also increasingly concerned that he’s managed to maintain his grip on the GOP race deep into the fall.

The first reference to a database for Muslims came in Trump’s interview with Yahoo News published Thursday in which the billionaire real estate mogul did not reject the idea of requiring Muslims to register in a database or giving them special identification cards noting their religion.

“We’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” Trump told Yahoo News.

According to Yahoo, he also suggested he would consider warrantless searches, saying, “We’re going to have to do things that we never did before.”

Asked by reporters Thursday night to explain his Yahoo comments, Trump suggested his response had been misconstrued. “I never responded to that question,” he said.

Trump’s plan for a Muslim database draws comparison to Nazi Germany

By Vaughn Hillyard

Donald Trump “would certainly implement” a database system tracking Muslims in the United States, the Republican front-runner told NBC News on Thursday night.

“I would certainly implement that. Absolutely,” Trump said in Newton, Iowa, in between campaign town halls.

“There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases,” he added. “We should have a lot of systems.”

When asked whether Muslims would be legally obligated to sign into the database, Trump responded, “They have to be — they have to be.” Later, Trump was repeatedly asked to explain the difference between requiring Muslims to enter their information into a database and making Jewish people register in Nazi Germany. He responded four times by saying, “You tell me.”

On Friday morning, Trump rival Jeb Bush called the comments “just wrong.”

“You talk about internment, you talk about closing mosques, you talk about registering people. That’s just wrong. I don’t care about campaigns,” he said on CNBC. “It’s not a question of toughness. It’s to manipulate people’s angst and their fears. That’s not strength, that’s weakness.”

Hillary Clinton also denounced Trump’s statement on Twitter.

This is shocking rhetoric. It should be denounced by all seeking to lead this country. -H https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/667676284663832576 

Ibrahim Hooper, national spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, sounded incredulous when he was asked about Trump’s comments, telling NBC News: “We’re kind of at a loss for words.”

“What else can you compare this to except to prewar Nazi Germany?” Hooper asked. “There’s no other comparison, and [Trump] seems to think that’s perfectly OK.”

Rabbi Jack Moline, executive director of the nonprofit Interfaith Alliance, drew the same comparison Thursday night.

“My father was in World War II, and he fought to preserve America against what the Nazis were doing,” Moline told NBC News.

“This is exactly why there is an America, to not be like that,” he said.

RELATED: Carson compares refugees to rabid dogs

Trump on Thursday also ignored a question of whether there would be consequences for Muslims who do not register into the hypothetical database.

Asked where they would be registered, the real estate mogul said Muslims would be signed up at “different places.”

“It’s all about management,” he said. “Our country has no management.”

Trump tied his reasoning for the database to the need to identify who is in the country legally.

“It would stop people from coming in illegally,” Trump said. “We have to stop people from coming into our country illegally.”

During a town hall that aired just before making those remarks, Trump reiterated his calls not to allow Syrian refugees into the country, saying bringing them “into this country is suicide. I call it the Trojan horse.”

Ben Carson, currently second in recent national polling, suggested Thursday morning in Alabama that trying to distinguish terrorists among Syrian refugees coming into the United States would be like having “a rabid dog running around your neighborhood.”

“Doesn’t mean that you hate all dogs, by any stretch of the imagination,” Carson said. “But you’re putting your intellect into motion and you’re thinking how do I protect my children.”

Is Hunter Walker Team Hillary’s Latest Hit Man?

by DAN RIEHL 30 Dec 2014Washington, DC

Those familiar with what was once referred to as “Clinton, Inc.” are already pointing to Team Hillary as the source behind a political hit on potential Hillary challenger Democrat Jim Webb.

(Hunter) Walker reports that “Born Fighting PAC” has continued taking donations, several years after Webb retired from Congress. He transferred some $100,000 from his Senate campaign account to the PAC.

The story was reported by Hunter Walker, now with Business Insider. A quick review of Walker’s employment and writing history will do little to dispel the notion that Hillary Clinton’s team was, in fact, behind the story coming out. His tenure at Talking Points memo alone is enough to suggest a close relationship with Democrat Hillary Clinton and his reporting suggests even more:

Hunter Walker is Business Insider’s politics editor. Previously, he worked at Talking Points Memo, The New York Observer, and The Daily, among others. Hunter is a native of Brooklyn, New York. He holds a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University.

When Hillary was taking heat over low turnout  for her speech at Georgetown’s Gaston Hall in December of 2014, enter Hunter Walker to let people know it wasn’t Hillary’s fault.

Georgetown Blames Low Turnout At Hillary Clinton Speech On Final Exams

Update (1:40 p.m.): Georgetown spokesperson Stacy Kerr sent a statement to Business Insider noting there has been large turnout for past events at the school with Clinton. She also suggested the fact it is the last week before final exams may have contributed to lower turnout this time.

There’s this by Walker at TPM in January of 2014: Hillary Clinton Allies Deny She’s ‘Coordinating’ With Super PACs

Then in July of 2014, when Team Hillary wanted to go after journalist Ed Klein, who did it turn to? Why, Hunter Walker, of course:

Hillary Clinton’s Inner Circle Calls This Best-Selling Author The Most ‘Despicable’ Person In The World

Given the trajectory of Walker’s career, it’s not unusual that, from past to present he’s done so much material on Hillary Clinton. Just see here, here, here and most certainly a host of other items we well.

But given his obvious Team Hillary insider access and the timing of this new hit on Jim Webb — one of her potential rivals for the Democrat nomination in 2016 — there’s also every reason to believe “Clinton, Inc.” is back in the business of political career assassination and Hunter Walker just did a stint as their latest  hit man du jour.
