Daniel Krauthammer joins Need to Know to talk of the divide on the right over nationalism versus patriotism. Is nationalism a good impulse or not? He also offers views on the Comey firing.

Jay and Mona then speak of the French elections, immigration, the unfilled jobs in the Trump Administration, how to boost the economy, Prince Phillip’s retirement, uniforms (school and otherwise), and the great Kate O’Beirne – RIP.

    Should we not be nationalists? Some of us have it in their blood. My dad was a soldier and I was raised on this record.

    So, is this guy Charles’ son or not?

    I think we should be patriots and there is a difference.

    Did I really just spend fifteen minutes of my life listening to Daniel Krauthammer worry about Donald Trump’s lack in Abraham Lincoln like qualities? Should we really even encourage Trump in that direction? Would we be a lot happier if, for example, he unilaterally suspended the right of habeas corpus and had the editor of the New York Times arrested?

    Actually, now that I think about it….

    Patriotism defined by Conservatives: Open borders, Muslim Immigration, and death of the west.

    So Mona, where was the lynch mob that attempted to get vigilante justice by executing the two illegals who were reported to have raped and sodomized a 14 year old girl in a middle school restroom? Does the fact that the report of forcible rape was incorrect and that the girl had wanted sex with one of the illegals really exonerate much the behavior of the illegals, one being 18 years old, who both took advantage of a vulnerable young girl that way? And how does this invalidate in any way the argument for keeping illegal aliens out of the country?

    Also Mona, your claims in a NR article that illegals commit less crime than the native born, is based on completely bogus studies and data. I suggest you take a look at Ann Coulters book “Adios, America . . . ” or read her column on the subject. See: http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/2015-07-15.html

    I love Mona but on this issue she is infuriatingly bonkers. By her logic we should throw open the gates and import the 2 billion third world folks that want to come here. That way crime would be diluted to practically nothing.

    BTW the poor persecuted immigrant got off because he was three years 10 months older than the little 14 y.o. girl he was sat beside in ninth grade, not the four years required for statutory rape. So alrighty then, if you believe the birth certificate some coyote provided him with was accurate.
