Thank goodness St Valentine’s Day meant there was something to glow about this week. The political news just gets more depressing. I’ve been trying to hold on to some shreds of faith in our President, but he’s making it awfully difficult. This week’s fiasco, or Trumpasco, was of course the emergency funding bill out of Congress. Oh dear; oh dear, oh dear.

That funding bill is worse than bad: it’s a catastrophe.

It contains some meager funding for border fences in crucial places on our southern border; but the local authorities in those places are given a veto on the actual building of the fences! Since all the jurisdictions concerned are, at best, deep-blue Democrat, and at worst, bought-and-paid-for by the Mexican smuggling gangs, there will be no fences.

The more you look at the bill, the worse it gets. There is a flat-out Amnesty provision in it for any illegal alien resident in the U.S.A. who says they might sponsor a unaccompanied-minor border-jumper, or who lives in a household with one, or who lives in a household that includes a person who might sponsor one, or whose cousin has a dentist who plays golf with a guy whose wife thinks she might know one.

As Daniel Horowitz has tweeted:

This bill is … worse than amnesty. Amnesty is a reprieve for a transgression of the past. This bill prospectively invites 15 million illegals to engage in human smuggling in order to obtain de factopermanent status here.

Quote from Dan Stein at the Federation for American Immigration Reform: “If this bill is enacted, expect the largest surge of unaccompanied minors this country has ever seen.” [Experts: GOP/Dem Deal to Spark ‘Largest Surge’ of Young Border Crossers ‘Country Has Ever Seen’, by John Binder, Breitbart, February 14, 2019]

Enforcement is gutted by the bill, with a twenty percent reduction in detention beds and an expansion of catch-and-release.

It’s not just illegal aliens who benefit. Legal immigration is stepped up, too. Numbers of H-2B visas—that’s for non-agricultural, unskilled seasonal workers—are doubled. There’s $3.4 billion for “refugee resettlement” so we can have more Somalis and Congolese to enrich us.

And so on. This bill is awful, unspeakably awful. It’s an utter rebuff to everything Donald Trump campaigned on in 2016. Yet as we go to tape here at Radio Derb, we’re getting confirmation that the President has signed the filthy thing. [White House Confirms Donald Trump Has Signed Government Funding Bill, by Charlie Spiering, Breitbart,February 15, 2019]

Not to worry, says the President: I’ll declare a National Emergency and shuffle some funds over to pay for the fencing. He held a press conference Friday midday to tell us he was about to sign that declaration.

What’s the point, Mr. President? Friday midday you signed a declaration that will let you build a fence here and there. Friday afternoon you signed a bill that gives Sheriff Gonzalez in Wackapaloosa County a total veto on your using his land, while simultaneously ripping the guts out of immigration enforcement and showering the world with guest-worker visas.

Trump’s national-emergency declaration will anyway be lawyered to death. Trump himself seems to foresee this, but he dismissed it breezily when announcing the National Emergency declaration:

And we will have a National Emergency, and then we will then be sued, and they will sue us in the Ninth Circuit, even though it shouldn’t be there. And we will possibly get a bad ruling, and then we’ll get another bad ruling. And then we’ll end up in the Supreme Court, and hopefully we’ll get a fair shake.

Remarks by President Trump on the National Security and Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border,February 15, 2019

Uh-huh. How long will all that take, Mr. President? What if the Supreme Court declines to take the case? What if they take it but rule against you?

Have you noticed the Strange New Respect Chief Justice Roberts has been getting from our elites lately? [In Surprise Abortion Vote, John Roberts Avoids ‘Jolt to the Legal System’, By Adam Liptak, New York Times, February 8, 2019] And Justice Ginsburg’s back on her exercise bike.

And what about the Amnesties, and the increases in Catch-and-Release, and the H-2B visas? Will your National Emergency take care of those?

To compound his offenses, Trump has thrown Ann Coulter off the sled, though in the nicest possible way: “I like her, but she’s off the reservation … But I haven’t spoken to her. I don’t follow her. I don’t talk to her.”

The rule I heard was, you go home with the feller that brung you. Flipping the sexes round here, if there was one person more than any other that brung Donald Trump to the White House, it was Ann. Now she’s “off the reservation”—along with Steve Bannon and Jeff Sessions.

(I really miss Jeff Sessions. According to the Wall Street Journal, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe claims in his new book that Jeff said of the FBI: “Back in the old days you all only hired Irishmen. They were drunks but they could be trusted. Not like all those new people with nose rings and tattoos.” [Sessions said FBI was better off when ‘you all only hired Irishmen,’ according to McCabe book, by Caitlin Yilek, Washington Examiner, February 14, 2019] Spot on, Jeff. If it is indeed the case that FBI agents now sport nose rings and visible tattoos, that’s a sad decline from the days of Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. Now there was a great Irishman).

ORDER IT NOW

I’m reluctantly coming to the conclusion that the blogger Z-man got it right: Trump’s just a bag of wind, a “bullshitter who got very lucky.” [Not My President, March 1, 2018] He has no political skills and no firm core of belief on political issues. By the latter I mean that if he says something today, six months on he may be saying the opposite thing, with just as much apparent conviction—as indeed he has done on legal immigration.

I’m also getting the impression of a guy who is lazy and timid. By lazy I mean he hasn’t made much effort to improve his understanding of key issues, or to get properly to grips with staffing chores. By timid I mean reluctant to challenge, to throw down gauntlets—like an executive order ending Birthright Citizenship. Sure, it might fail at last, but at least battle would have been joined.

Trump doesn’t want battle, he doesn’t want challenge. He wants to tweet, watch TV, and make gassy speeches full of empty promises that he’ll renege on after his next meeting with Jared.

Alexander Hamilton told us that “Energy in the Executive is a leading character in the definition of good government.”

What we have is lethargy in the executive. Congress, district court judges, and Deep State operators are calling the shots.

Nero fiddled; Trump tweets.

Wait, though: There is hope! William Weld has announced he’ll challenge Trump in the GOP primaries next year!

  1. The more you look at the bill, the worse it gets.

    This is a lie. The author and his sources either haven’t read the bill at all, or are simply lying.

    There is no local veto, 5 specific local communities have a say in which existing design is chosen and the alignment followed, but have no say in whether it is built.

    There is no flat-out amnesty, it only says that DHS can’t deport someone just because HHS informs them the person is an applicant for fostering – unless anyone in the house is a felon in any country.

    Finally have you seen what the authorized “levee pedestrian fencing” is? It’s a massive concrete wall topped by a bigger steel fence.

    I didn’t realize the Bill was that bad. Oh well, I guess it’s over, then. We tried. We elected this apparent outsider who told us what we needed to hear, but wasn’t astute enough to defeat the entrenched forces in our government. Not sure where we go from here, Kamala is a non-starter and the rest of the dems are so far Left people think far-Leftist Tulsi looks good.

    MS-13 Household Protection Act of 2019

    true name of this bill

    https://www.conservativereview.com/news/5-insane-provisions-amnesty-omnibus-bill/

    This bill contains a blatant amnesty for the worst cartel smugglers: Section 224(a) prohibits the deportation of anyone who is sponsoring an “unaccompanied” minor illegal alien – or who says they might sponsor a UAC, or lives in a household with a UAC, or a household that potentially might sponsor a UAC. It’s truly difficult to understate the betrayal behind this provision. One of the driving factors of the invasion is the misinterpretation of the UAC law. Under current law, Central American teenagers are only treated as refugees if they are A) a victim of “A severe form of trafficking” and B) have no relatives in the country. Yet almost all of them are self-trafficked by these very illegal relatives who are indeed present in the country. Rather than clamping down on this fleecing of the American people, the bill gives amnesty to the very people paying the cartels to invade us!

    “We can call this the MS-13 Household Protection Act of 2019,” said Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies. “We know that 80 percent of the UAC sponsors are in the country illegally. The number of people this would protect would reach into the hundreds of thousands, if all of the household or potential household members are counted. ICE has estimated that 30-40 percent of the MS-13 members it has arrested in the last two years arrived as UACs. There is no reason to shield any of these individuals from deportation. After all, if the minor is living with family, they should no longer be considered unaccompanied anyway. If there are illegal aliens here who do not yet have a child here to serve as a deportation shield, this certainly is an incentive for them to make the arrangements to bring one.”

  7. From the first day of his campaign, I never believed Trump was serious about cutting immigration. Why should he be? His businesses surely benefit from cheap labor as much as any others. He just spotted an underserved customer base (immigration restrictionists) and told them enough of what they wanted to hear to get their votes.

    The wall, if he gets it, will basically be another TSA–a showpiece whose cost is all out of proportion to its minimal benefit. (Minimal to everyone but Trump, that is. For him it’s his only hope of getting re-elected, plus it’s a nice boondoggle for the construction industry, where I’m sure he has lots of friends.)

  8. KenH says:
    @Fozzy Bear

    I sure as hell hope your right but when a law shields illegal aliens accompanying or sponsoring alien children from being deported that’s basically amnesty lite. The reduction of ICE detention beds and no increase in border patrol or ICE agents is NOT a win for immigration restriction and enforcement.

  11. KenH says:

    Ann Coulter supported and endorsed Trump long before most of the kosher con punditcrats savaging her climbed aboard the Trump train. At this stage I don’t see the point of Trump as we elected him to stop business as usual politics. And with few exceptions that’s what he’s delivered and this terrible spending bill gutting immigration enforcement was just the exclamation point. The Democrats and RINOs have completely defeated and emasculated him.

    Unlike Obama, Trump doesn’t have a core ideology and vision for America other than Israel uber alles and what beliefs he does have are subject to his whims and whatever the moment calls for. He staunchly opposed gun control on the campaign trail but then as president told Feinstein and other Congressman to “take the guns first and worry about due process later” and banned bump stocks just a few months ago. Several states, some Republican controlled like Florida, immediately followed suit with unconstitutional “red flag laws” that provides for gun seizures with no due process.

    At Trumps’s recent El Paso rally he said in reference to the anti-second amendment fanatics “Come and take em.” Well they now are, Mr. President, because of your big mouth and the green light you gave them. So the anti-gun lobby has achieved small victories with Trump that they never got with Obama.

    Now the carnival barker in chief and tweeter is clamoring for “the largest number of immigrants in history. ” Again, that’s not what he campaigned on and not what we voted for but he’s being pressured by business interests and Sheldon Adelson and doesn’t have the strength of character to stand up to them. Then again maybe he does but he’s just a con man like some of his detractors said he was and campaign promises to end H1B and reduce legal immigration was just another one of his many cons.

  12. @Issac

    I’m not taking anyone’s word. Unlike you (or Derbyshire for that matter). I’ve actually read the bloody bill (H.J. 31). We are being lied to to make the bill sound a million times worse than it is.

  13. Trump’s still got much of his small-minded MAGA base behind him on his renewed faux fight for the Wall, and against illegal immigration (while he wants the greatest amount of LEGAL immigration in history – UGH). He still draws adoring crowds of working class whites to his painfully awful and repetitive rallies, who support him no matter how many times he throws them under the bus.

    But it’s too late for Trump. The time to have carried out his election mandate was right at the beginning, when his party had full control of both houses. So what if Speaker Paul Ryan tried to block him. Trump could have bypassed that libertarian, open borders, Koch-acolyte, and cracked some heads in the House. I can’t believe he wouldn’t have gotten his majority if he had tried.

    Now Trump finally decides to pick a fight with a stubborn old pro like Pelosi, who knows the system inside and out and where the bodies are buried. Good luck with that. And Schumer is acting like the majority leader in the Senate, while the real leader, turtle man McConnell, must be hiding in his safe space.

  22. I don’t need to see the Bill. it was my understanding there would be no bill minus funding for a wall.

    So any bill is an indication that this president folded yet again, while getting nothing in return.

    I am unclear what Miss Coulter said, however, she as with millions have ever reason to be deeply disgruntled. The president folds, and folds, and folds, and folds . . . and he folds on issues for which he was elected to advance.

    I don’t need to see a bill that doesn’t exist when in fact, it’s very existence indicates that this executive has failed in achieving his objective.

    This president’s inability to maintain the standards he expressed during the campaign and standards for which he won the election is not the fault of those who voted for him. I am responsible for my vote, not the president’s choices to ignore why I voted for him. That is on him.

    As to the astuteness of those calling him a “con man”, as prophetic utterance

    “fiddle sticks” .

    It was not his intention to fold, he did think he would face the opposition he has. And he is just not up standing to the task, for more than one reason.

    Massive immigration has unraveled and severely harmed life in California, where I have lived for a very long time. But the opposite is true for a component of immigration — East Asian immigrants: My observation and experience is that they are decent, industrious, conscientious, proficient, fastidious, and smart.

    Mr. Derbyshire really should stick to racebait. He either doesn’t read as much as he’s always saying, or never leaves the White tree fort. Or maybe he just doesn’t want to acknowledge that one can go back much earlier than last March and not even have to leave Unz for true insight about Donald Trump as just another puppet politician:

    “In 2008, Obama was touted as a political outsider who will hose away all of the rot and bloody criminality of the Bush years. He turned out to be a deft move by our ruling class. Though fools still refuse to see it, Obama is a perfect servant of our military banking complex. Now, Trump is being trumpeted as another political outsider.

    A Trump presidency will temporarily appease restless, lower class whites, while serving as a magnet for liberal anger. This will buy our ruling class time as they continue to wage war abroad while impoverishing Americans back home. Like Obama, Trump won’t fulfill any of his election promises, and this, too, will be blamed on bipartisan politics.”

    I shared this Linh Dinh passage in commenting last year on another Derbyshire column. And we know that “Immigrant Doomsayer” reads these things — he even comments occasionally on others’ columns.

  29. In reference to: “According to the Wall Street Journal, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe claims in his new book that Jeff said of the FBI: “Back in the old days you all only hired Irishmen. They were drunks but they could be trusted. Not like all those new people with nose rings and tattoos.”

    Something from my blog:

    Sep 1, 2018 – Trigger Happy FBI Bro

    My July 4, 2017 blog post was “Trigger Happy FBI Agent Caused Death.” It explained why an FBI agent open fired on a man [Robert LaVoy Finicum] as he exited his truck with his hands raised. State troopers then open fired and killed the innocent man. Fake news claimed the man was reaching for his gun, but only the “Salt Lake Tribune” and a few other small newspapers reported the key facts that he was fired upon while his hands were raised and never brandished a weapon, which can be seen in the actual video. He did grab his chest after he was shot.

    I was impressed that the Feds charged FBI agent Joseph Astarita with lying to investigators after he denied firing the shots, but I’m not surprised that he was found not guilty and that major media continues to print fake news that his victim was reaching for a gun. However, his trial revealed an disturbing cultural aspect of the FBI. Astarita was an agent for 13 years and a member of the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team, and missed when he tried to shoot this man. When asked by investigators to explain what happened, Agent Astarita replied: “You don’t get to ask me that, bro, bro, you can’t ask me that now. No, bro, we’re good.”

  32. From a legal/legislative perspective this looks pretty bad, but the legal perspective is only one perspective. A lot of US government immigration failure isn’t just about bad laws and policies, its about inadequate funding. There is no legal reason why the US should have high levels of illegal immigration. The main reason seems to be a lack of infrastructure investment in walls, sensors, detainment camps, border agents, visa checks etc. Trump seems to be of the view that he can cede ground on the legal/ legislative front and gets some positive results by increasing actual spending. Whether he’s right or not, only time will tell.

    Trump, Hailey etc also deserve some credit for criticising those parasitic globalist organisations like the UN and WTO. It’s highly likely these bloated meddlers are playing a major role in undermining immigration restrictionism in the US, UK and other Anglo nations. Unlike the awakening Europeans, who only have the EU to deal with, we’re paralysed by globalist organisations of our own making.

    How many times have I drawn attention to the fact that White Trashionalists are not functional whites, but a 70-IQ wastematter race that has nothing in common with the functional white race? They are merely where the genetic wastematter collects for swift removal.

    If you don’t like the funding bill, who can blame you (just the usual lib suspects). The bill sucks. But don’t blame the president. He doesn’t like it either, as he made clear. But he had no choice except to sign it or resign from office. His own party would not tolerate another shutdown. This is the “compromise” bill worked up by both parties and signed off on by Richard Shelby. Senate Republicans would NOT back a veto. House Republicans don’t matter anymore. So blame Collins and Romney and Gardner and Murkowski. This is McConnellasco. The president was over a barrel. The only arrow left in his quiver was to declare a “national emergency” to somehow keep the fading wall dream still remotely alive.Coulter & Co. have the luxury of not having to deal with congress. The president doesn’t.

  35. @Fozzy Bear

    Thank you for your diligence and interest in the bill’s actual details.

    It’s possible (likely) that there are strategically-placed loopholes in the bill that are designed to thwart the bill’s intent. These are familiar liberal tricks. The Dems are shamelessly devious. The Dems want to obstruct border enforcement and stop the construction of the wall in order to wreck the Trump presidency.

    Obstructing Trump’s border wall will empower the Dems by increasing the number of poor, Spanish-speaking voters. This demographic shift has already helped make California a One-Party state.

    Further, since many judges are already in sync with the goals the Democratic party and are predisposed to issue rulings that interfere with ‘conservative’ legislation, Trump has a prospective sea of hurdles to jump going forward. The Deep State is largely Democratic swamp.

    Trump is up against a tsunami of entrenched opposition and bad will. And judicial activism (judicial tyranny) is still growing.

    It’s fair to say that the President sincerely wants to stop illegal immigration. Neocon naysayers like David Horowitz however will predictably seize upon the weakest parts of this ‘compromise’ bill as an opportunity to degrade Trump. But it’s the Treason Party (Dems) and Trump-hating faux conservatives who deserve our contempt the most.

    We are being lied to to make the bill sound a million times worse than it is.

    This being an information war, deception (by all sides) would be par for the course. Remember the “Lenin’s Widow” story [1].

    The most imaginative lies are the most effective:
    Example: “The poor blacks are being abandoned by heartless whites who hate them so much that they immediately abandon their neighborhood when even a single black moves in, leaving the poor blacks with nothing but run-down buildings. Blacks have been wronged, and deserve everything we can give them.”, followed by: “You’re a black couple, young, and the husband doesn’t have much of a salary. We will give you more money if you divorce. Your children will be better off if you live separately. Sign here.”

    And there is the “fog of war” effect, also. Some reports will be simply incorrect.

    So, right now, we’re getting conflicting reports on what was and was not in the bill. “Bother”, as Pooh Bear said. Remember that nothing is ever as good or bad as first reports indicate, and that, whatever else this is, this is not even close to over. The US working class has been just as thoroughly lost to the two parties as the Yellow Vests have been lost to Macron. Laws and force haven’t helped Macron, they won’t help the Democrats and Republicans either. If anything, treachery on such a large scale would work against the two parties. Legitimacy, don’t you know [2]. Lose that, lose everything.

    1] Supposedly Lenin’s widow spoke with Stalin after Lenin’s death, and said that she would publicly opposed Stalin and use the authority of Lenin’s testament and her status as Lenin’s widow to destroy Stalin’s bid for leadership _unless_ Stalin immediately withdrew from the leadership conference.
    What happened next shows the futility of giving the opposition an opening when the opposition controls media.
    Stalin says
    “That might have worked if you had acted immediately, but now I’m warned. If you try to organize any public appearance, then I will produce Lenin’s real widow.
    State media will say that Lenin hated you, and acted otherwise only for the Party’s sake. He secretly divorced you, and married another woman. We will produce this woman, who will endorse me. You will be denounced as an enemy of the Party.
    Or, you can remain as Minister of Education and further the revolutionary cause to which you have dedicated your life.”

    You’re a retard. Politicians are circus barkers. Voters have less knowledge about them than they do the average football team. While voters project their hopes and dreams onto politicians the way they do their favorite sports teams, they have as much control over pols as they have over their home teams. We listen to their promises, and we hope they deliver. Trump has over-promised and under-delivered. I hope there’s a GOP challenger strong enough to defenestrate him. But if he’s renominated, we will vote again for him. Because while he may not push for every item on the GOP platform, we can rest assured that the Democrat will push for every item on the Democratic platform. Maybe we’ll move from an era in which gay marriage is legal to one where it’s mandatory.

    By “effectively” I mean that although he appeared to be sincere on the campaign traiI [body language, voice etc.] , that even if sincere, that sincerity would mean nothing in the end .

    BecauseTrump, like his millions of supporters, was, and is, hopelessly politically naive.

    He, and they remain completely oblivious to the true nature of government[s], despite all the evidence staring them in the face everyday. To whit:

    “Because they are all ultimately funded via both direct and indirect theft [taxes], and counterfeiting [central bank monopolies], all governments are essentially, at their very cores, 100% corrupt criminal scams which cannot be “reformed”,”improved”, nor “limited” in scope, simply because of their innate criminal nature.”

    Wanting/expecting a 100% criminal org. to improve one’s life and country is obviously [ or should be] a complete waste of time .

    Until enough people come to recognize:

    1] the true, underlying criminal nature of government, and ….

    2] that its “solutions” always make matters worse, not better,

    ….and in light of those two facts decide en masse to vote for a candidate who is 100% dedicated to dramatically shrinking the government overnight to [ at the very least] its original constitutional size and limits, the government will continue to grow, start new wars [both at home on citizens, and overseas], enlarge the welfare state etc. etc. etc. ad infinitum, because, given its core, unchangeable, criminal nature THAT IS WHAT IT DOES.

    So he gets angry and stupid and tweets out like a 3 year old, defying his mommy.
    Then he gets humiliated more.

    The real fact is that it took 70 years for the USA to get where it is today. The MIC accounts for much more than 50% of the governments discretional spending (Plus the missing $20 trillion) so any change in that is going to take years to implement. If he decided tomorrow to cease all MIC spending on the basis that no-one wants to attack USA anyway, the country would fall into the biggest recession the world has ever seen. Millions of Americans would starve. The rest of the world would celebrate and feel ‘serves them right’ as USA has been murdering and starving millions outside the US for years, but his chances of re-election would be nil.
    If he unilaterally and by some miracle decided tomorrow to repatriate all ‘undocumented foreigners’ the economy would collapse. The rest of the country would be so disrupted it would not function. Far worse than hurricanes, earthquakes or war, yet look how that causes chaos. California would cease to function at all.
    Now that may or may not be a good thing, but actually moving 20 million people over the border would destroy both US and Mexico. It simply is not possible. Do the arithmetic for God’s sake.
    The idiot Dems plans make things worse because it is the only way that they can retain power, but it is a downward spiral. They know it, we know it but there is no realistic alternative.

    “Anarchy isn’t good, but its better than no government at all.”

    Of the three basic functions of government (issuing currency, defending the nation, and making the laws), the US Federal Government did none in AD 1800. Today, again it does none of those things, but it fails to do them with a far greater number of people, and at far greater cost.

    The problem is that the people don’t vote out a governmental form. The USSR, c.a. 1990, illustrates this. The USSR honestly tried to reform itself from the top down. Stalin’s approach having produced the system they were trying to end, they took a somewhat more gentle approach. That succeeded in producing a viable Russia, but the USSR was lost during the change’s initial stages.

    Governments are not changed by their own internal form. They are changed by losing their internal form, and by something different emerging from the resultant chaos. See: _Anatomy of a Revolution_, although that just covers Western and Russian revolutions. The Meiji Reformation appears to show that something similar might also be true for at least one non-Wester country.

    Campaign Slogan: Liberate the US from the Jewish Oligarchy

    A careful examination of history shows that the decisions of Jewish people have been the catalyst for widespread misery throughout the past few centuries. A close look at today’s power brokers reveals their Jewish heritage or influence, which is the source of nearly all injustice worldwide, and of the degradation of formerly-good American institutions.

    While I am looking to represent all US Citizens, I am a white advocate. There is systematic discrimination and incitement against European-descended Americans, and I want to crush manifestations of anti-White racism in US institutions. This racism is originated by Jewish Marxist conspirators.

    [MORE]

    Asians face discrimination in academia, with Jews occupying 67% of seats in the graduate school of Harvard, despite being less than 2% of the US population. I will ensure that Jewish nepotism no longer squeezes qualified Asian-Americans out of our universities.

    I am also a black advocate. Justice must finally be made for black Americans descended from African slaves. The descendants of the Jews who ran the Trans-Atlantic slave trade and who operated the slave markets in America must be held accountable for their ancestors’ crimes against humanity.

    During my 2018 CA Senate run, I originally proposed to limit Jewish representation in our government institutions as a countermeasure against their race’s cancerous influence on our society. However, after further consideration, I have decided that full expulsion of Jews from the United States is the only solution for freeing us from Jewish supremacist tyranny.
    Platform

    Merit-based employment in all government agencies and all institutions which receive funds from the Federal and State Governments.
    Introduce legislation outlawing lobbying efforts of foreign governments, specifically those of the terrorist state of Israel (AIPAC, ADL, etc).
    Introduce Senate resolution condemning Israel for terrorist attacks on the USS Liberty and US bases during the Lavon Affair.
    Put to rest the issue of slavery in the US by introducing a bill ending all foreign aid to Israel, and giving the US population of blacks descended of African slaves in the US a one-time payment. This payment will be equivalent to the next ten years of aid to Israel divided by the number of recipients. Enshrined in this bill will be a permanent ban on providing foreign aid to Israel, including a death penalty for any politician introducing a bill that would lead to foreign aid to Israel.
    Introduce a bill to fund research into implementing my Mars Impact Theory, the redirection of asteroids to a collision path with Mars such that the planet would have its magnetosphere and atmosphere restored for later colonization and mineral exploitation by the US government and potentially any partners in colonization.
    Introduce a bill that would lead to the embargoing of Israel until they agree to repay all foreign aid previously rendered, with interest, as well as reparations to families of the victims of Jewish terrorist attacks on the US.
    Introduce a bill to the US Senate making it illegal to raise funds for any foundation related to the perpetuating of propaganda related to a “holocaust,” formally making the US’s stance on “the holocaust” to be that it is a Jewish war atrocity propaganda hoax that never happened.
    Introduce legislation restoring immigration policy in the US such that the 1965 Immigration Act is repealed and restoring the policies of the National Origins Act.
    Introduce legislation restoring the original intent of the Constitution, explicitly stating that the United States is an ethnically European nation.
    Campaign Finance Reform: Make it illegal for corporations or lobbies of foreign governments to donate to candidates or political action committees. Outlaw all lobbies, except non-profit lobbies that work to protect the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the US Constitution.
    Nationalize Google, Facebook, Twitter, and all other natural monopolies in the IT industry.
    End the estate tax for family-owned farms, and reimburse all families who have paid estate tax on their farm inheritances going back to the establishment of the estate tax, with interest.
    Reclaim the weapons-grade nuclear material that Israel stole from the US in the Apollo Affair, using the full force of the US Military if necessary.
    Sentence traitors to the US who have conspired with the terrorist state of Israel to complete a community service project, cleansing the Superfund site created by the Apollo Affair of radioactive material, without protective gear.
    Whereas Jews are ultimately loyal to the state of Israel, and thus represent hostile foreign nationals of a terrorist country that has committed acts of war and war crimes against the US, without resolution by ceasefire or peace treaty, and whereas every other Western country has ultimately expelled the Jews, therefore, expel all Jews from the United States by the year 2022.

    What could possibly be behind a bill that encourages 15 million illegals to engage in human smuggling, driving the largest surge of unaccompanied minors this country has ever seen??

    Adrenochrome. It’s the most addictive chemical known to mankind and the drug of choice of our Anglo-American-Zionist ruling elites and their global pedo-blackmail-trafficking crime network.

    Scientifically, adrenochrome is a chemical that’s made when our bodies adrenaline (epinephrine) oxidizes, and the younger the human body, the stronger the drug. Adrenochrome can be extracted from the human pineal gland through a needle at the base of the neck/spinal, however, there is also another well-known method for extracting this potent highly addictive chemical:

    When the potential murder victim is terrorized, more adrenaline is being pumped into their blood. They are then killed at the peak of their terror and the blood is then drunk, in a ritualistic manner.

    And the shocking truth at the heart of our child sex trafficking epidemic is that thousands of little kids are being abducted for our Luciferian pedo-elites in Hollywood and Washington DC to rape, torture and harvest for adrenochrome at the height of terror, then sacrificed to Satan, parted out, and fed to animals.

    Hunter S. Thompson mentioned this drug via his own reporting many times throughout his career, “Adrenochrome. You won’t need much. Just a tiny taste. I got the bottle and dipped the head of a paper match into it. That’s about right. That stuff makes pure mescaline seem like ginger beer. You’ll go completely crazy if you take too much.”(Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 1988)

    Adrenochrome, a natural hormone that’s released into the bloodstream when a child experiences terror or intense pain at the brink of death is the reason for a sinister bill calling for the largest surge of unaccompanied minors this country has ever seen…“For every moment of triumph, for every instance of beauty, many souls must be trampled.” – Hunter S.Thompson

  58. @mark green

    Agree.

    Bear in mind also the nature of contemporary laws. as described at length by Lowi [1]. Lowi embedded this description in his larger thesis, but it is perhaps more important than his larger thesis.
    When the US industrialized, the nature of law changed. The US political structure had been intended for members of the original settlers [2], and proved grossly inadequate after c.a. 1845. The combination of mass immigration and and massive industrialization led to a situation much like today’s, with law enforcement absent over large sections of US cities and, apparently, much of the countryside [3]. The US Federal Government did very little about immigration (despite occasional anti-immigration riots in cities), but did seriously try to partially control (“regulate” in political language) the large industrial firms.
    The problem was that the politicians, however capable of ruling a farm economy, in Congress were utterly incapable of controlling industry. They quickly developed a reputation as people better bribed than talked to (sound familiar?). In response, the politicians changed the nature of US law.
    The old law had prohibited or mandated acts. No murder, no theft, no wife abandonment, no assault, contracts must be obeyed, you must pay debts. The new law did no such thing.
    The new law frankly admitted that Congress was incompetent, and outsourced laws to “agencies”: ICC, FDA, the usual alphabet bunch. The Agencies couldn’t pass laws, but they had the power to issue “regulations” which had the force of law (See the difference in consequence to breaking the regulations? Yes? Perhaps you could explain it to me sometime).
    Laws became statements that such and such an agency was formed, and that it has such and such a (very vague) purpose, in pursuit of which it could issue regulations. Any regulations. No Congressional oversight on the regulations. This is why Pelosi said “we have to pass the bill to see what’s in it”. Reading the bill wouldn’t tell you what the agencies it formed would be doing. This is also why the various Federal Agencies have gone rogue and are now telling Congress to get stuffed.

    And I suspect that this is what’s in the funding bill that Trump just signed. Freedom to do such and such, very general goals. No mandate that these things happen. There may be ways around this (e.g. Trump arranges expedited consideration by Supreme Court, Trump demonstrates that such actions will lead to a very large loss for the Establishment in the AD 2020 elections.). There may not be.

    But the nature of Law has changed, and the Congress has less control over government than might seem to be the case. One of the major problems in the late USSR was that the central government could not, ordinarily, control how tax money was spent. The USSR’s informal system would typically divert the money several times as if flowed down a chain of bosses, and the projects it funded were almost randomly selected. We’re seeing the same thing, and it’s kind of a mistake to see a unified entity on any level.

    The book is definitely recommended reading. It’s still widely read.
    Book theme, as per Amazon’s summary:

    The main argument which Lowi develops through this book is that the liberal state grew to its immense size and presence without self-examination and without recognizing that its pattern of growth had problematic consequences. Its engine of growth was delegation. The government expanded by responding to the demands of all major organized interests, by assuming responsibility for programs sought by those interests, and by assigning that responsibility to administrative agencies. Through the process of accommodation, the agencies became captives of the interest groups, a tendency Lowi describes as clientelism. This in turn led to the formulation of new policies which tightened the grip of interest groups on the machinery of government.

Trump has proven to be one of the biggest conmen in American history, it is evident that this Zionist puppet never had any intention of building a wall, for if he did , he would have started building it in the first year of his administration and he had the authority to do so under the national security issue and could have used the NDAA budget to build the wall and the Republicons controlled both houses of congress.

    Trump waited until the demonrats controlled the House of reps. and then made a big show of trying to get the funding by signing a bill which did the exact opposite of everything he had campaigned for and a bill that gave the demonrats everything they wanted, so it is absolutely obivious that Trump is a TROJAN HORSE for the zionist open borders as the wall will never be built and will be in the courts for years and Trump and his zionist masters knew this and pulled of the most diabolical deception in recent history.

    I voted for Trump and will never again vote for this carnival barker, the zionists have won again and the bolsheviks like Pelosi and Shumer are in control and open borders is a zionist plan to flood America with illegal unlimted immigration and make America a third world country to be able to meld it into the zionist NWO.

  68. It’s fair to say that the President sincerely wants to stop illegal immigration.

    Most of us who are appalled at Trump’s failure would probably agree that, insofar as the man has any fixed ideas, he sincerely believes illegal immigration is bad, because it’s illegal. But he’s not a big-picture man. He’s obsessed over symbolic details. We have his own clear statement that he wants more legal immigration than ever before.

    He just doesn’t get it that mass migration of low-IQ Aztecs, Somalis, etc. is the gathering disaster, not whether the formal boxes are being checked. The population that built and maintained this country is being sold down the river, in favor of lawnmower jockeys who will work cheap and vote Democratic till the next big comet strike.

    Whether through ignorance or design, Trump is serving the narrative that Americans (especially white people) aren’t good enough for America and need to be replaced.

    Peter Shane, a professor at Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law, said challenges to the emergency declaration could end up as a replay of the legal battle against Trump’s travel ban targeting people from several Muslim-majority nations. The Supreme Court last year upheld the travel ban after lower courts had ruled against Trump, with the justices giving the president deference on immigration and national security issues. Trump has painted illegal immigration and drug trafficking across the border as a national security threat. The National Emergencies Act of 1976 has been invoked dozens of times by presidents without a single successful legal challenge. Congress never defined a national emergency in the law. “Courts are reluctant to second-guess the president on matters of national security,” Shane said.

    All tax cuts are good. The less money Big Government has, the better.

    Tax cuts don’t necessarily translate to smaller government unless the tax cuts are accompanied by budget cuts which they haven’t been and Trump keeps rubber stamping budgets with huge deficits that are growing the government. In the case of the Trump tax cuts they’ve stimulated economic activity and the government is taking in more in tax revenue than before the cuts, but we’re spending as much or more than ever.

    I read where the recent budget increases the Dept. of Education’s budget by 23% and other departments also received increases. So government is not shrinking under Trump. It’s growing, even with the tax cuts.

    I think the EPA might have shrunk but that’s one of the few exceptions.

    The areas where we want it to grow like the border patrol and ICE saw their staff and resources effectively frozen or even reduced in the case of ICE. Art of the deal? I’m sure glad I never wasted my money on that book.

    Instead he spent two years embroiled in conflicts and identity politics. As someone who defended him beyond my own stead — I have say, his back pedaling is tiresome. i voted for a candidate for change and one who would stand — and nothing less.

    In the case of the Trump tax cuts they’ve stimulated economic activity and the government is taking in more in tax revenue than before the cuts,

    No we aren’t taking in more tax revenue.
    Corporate tax collections fell by 31 percent in the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, despite robust corporate profits. That’s because Trump/GOP cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21.
    Income taxes withheld from individuals grew by 1 percent. Overall tax receipts were flat. As a share of the economy, tax receipts shrank to 16.5 percent of GDP, from 17.2 percent the previous year.

    The COB says the government is expected to borrow more than a trillion dollars in the coming year, in part to make up for lower tax receipts.

    The GOP Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., called the growing deficit “very disturbing.” He argued the problem is neither tax cuts nor beefed-up military spending, but rather the big three entitlement programs: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

    To illustrate what mummified shit McConnell and his hanchos are do some comparisons:

    Last year we paid $371 billion in interest on government debt alone.
    While the Defense Department budget was $599 billion.
    Social Security benefits cost $977 billion
    Medicare $585 billion
    Medicaid $389 billion

    Here’s the Trump tax cut workout:
    ”Households earning between $500,000 and $1 million would see an average income increase of 4.3 percent after taxes, while households earning between $50,000 and $75,000 would see their income increase by an average 1.6 percent after taxes. In all, the average household was expected to get a tax cut of $1,610,

    On the subject of wastematter, it is really the only explanation.

    i) Most WNs are far below average in ALL desirable traits. Their physiognomy alone reveals this.
    ii) The cause cannot attract any women, even though it is wholly dependent on female participation.*
    iii) There is a large homosexual element to the WN subculture (about 25% of them are gay). This has been pointed out by Jack Donovan, John Derbyshire, Anatoly Karlin, and others. **
    iv) The issue of unusually high white variance cannot be dismissed. The variance in quality found among us whites (looks, talent, character, intelligence) is far higher than in any other race. That is why the bottom 20% is much further below the median than in other races. Whites are indeed a bimodal distribution of quality.
    v) Their left-wing economic views reveal that they just want freebies. Left-wing economics would harm the mainstream whites that they falsely purport to care about. In reality, they only want to extract from them (which is why I am in a crusade against these White Trashionalists).

    *The missing women have to be somewhere. Now, what is a group of far-below-average white women that is not found in other races? The fat bluehaired feminists. Genetically, they are the female members of the wastematter subrace, where as WNs are the men.

    **One has to have arrived at the conclusion that homosexuals are where nature concentrates waste matter for genetic expulsion. Homosexuals don’t reproduce, and they are often disturbing in appearance. Nature created the mechanism in order to facilitate the expulsion of waste matter from the gene pool. Now, not only whites are gay, but this is but one of the reasons WNs and bluehaired feminists are indisputably waste matter meant for expulsion, under HBD principles.

    One has to marvel at the fact that White Trashionalists have reached a point that they want a never-married, childless, NYC Lawyer chick who consistently dates black and South Asian guys, to be their savior.

    I thought that the WN credo states that :

    i) Production of white babies (even via paternity fraud if necessary) is priority #1.
    ii) Any white woman who has sex with a black guy is expelled from the white race as irrevocably tainted.

    It is amazing what happens amongst the lowermost dregs of society : the WNs.

    I doubt you have read the bill……
    https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-joint-resolution/31/text?format=txt

    Section 224 None of the funds provided by this act may be used by the Secretary of Homeland Security to place in detention, remove, refer for a decision whether to initiate removal proceedings, or initiate removal proceedings against a sponsor, potential sponsor, or member of a household of a sponsor or potential sponsor of an unaccompanied alien child.
    *The way I read this is that unless specified else where in the bill , and I haven’t found it so far, that any sponsor must be a legal citizen, then a illegal relative or other already in the country could claim sponsorship to avoid being deported.

    Sec. 230. (a) Of the total amount made available under “U.S. Customs and Border Protection–Procurement, Construction, and Improvements”, $2,370,222,000 shall be available only as follows: (1) $1,375,000,000 is for the construction of primary pedestrian fencing, including levee pedestrian fencing, in the Rio Grande Valley Sector; (2) $725,000,000 is for the acquisition and deployment of border security technologies and trade and travel assets and infrastructure, to include $570,000,000 for non-intrusive inspection equipment at ports of entry; and (3) $270,222,000 is for construction and facility improvements, to include $222,000,000 for humanitarian needs, $14,775,000 for Office of Field Operations facilities, and $33,447,000 for Border Patrol station facility improvements. (b) The amounts designated in subsection (a)(1) shall only be available for operationally effective designs deployed as of the date of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (Public Law 115-31), such as currently deployed steel bollard designs, that prioritize agent safety. (c) Not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall submit to the Committee on Appropriations of the Senate, the Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States an updated risk-based plan for improving security along the borders of the United States that includes the elements required under subsection (a) of section 231 of division F of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 (Public Law 115-141), which shall be evaluated in accordance with subsection (b) of such section. Sec. 231. None of the funds made available by this Act or prior Acts are available for the construction of of pedestrian fencing– (1) within the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge; (2) within the Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park; (3) within La Lomita Historical park; (4) within the National Butterfly Center; or (5) within or east of the Vista del Mar Ranch tract of the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge. Sec. 232. (a) Prior to use of any funds made available by this Act for the construction of physical barriers within the city limits of any city or census designated place described in subsection (c), the Department of Homeland Security and the local elected officials of such a city or census designated place shall confer and seek to reach mutual agreement regarding the design and alignment of physical barriers within that city or the census designated place (as the case may be). Such consultations shall continue until September 30, 2019 (or until agreement is reached, if earlier) and may be extended beyond that date by agreement of the parties, and no funds made available in this Act shall be used for such construction while consultations are continuing. (b) Not later than July 1, 2019, the Secretary shall issue notices for public comment regarding construction of pedestrian fencing in the places identified in subsection (c). The notices shall afford the public not less than 60 days to submit comments on the location of proposed fencing in the affected areas. Not later than 90 days following the end of the comment period identified in this subsection, the Department shall publish in the Federal Register its responses to the comments received along with its plans for construction in the areas identified in the notice to which it is responding. (c) The cities and census designated place described in this subsection are as follows: (1) Roma, Texas. (2) Rio Grande City, Texas. (3) Escobares, Texas. (4) La Grulla, Texas. (5) The census designated place of Salineno, Texas.

    Sec. 514. None of the funds made available in this Act may be used for planning, testing, piloting, or developing a national identification card.

    Provided further, That rental assistance provided under agreements entered into prior to fiscal year 2019 for a farm labor multi-family housing project financed under section 514 or 516 of the Act may not be recaptured for use in another project until such assistance has remained unused for a period of 12 consecutive months, if such project has a waiting list of tenants seeking such assistance or the project has rental assistance eligible tenants who are not receiving such assistance: Provided further, That such recaptured rental assistance shall, to the extent practicable, be applied to another farm labor multi-family housing project financed under section 514 or 516 of the Act: Provided further, That except as provided in the third proviso under this heading and notwithstanding any other provision of the Act, the Secretary may recapture rental assistance provided under agreements entered into prior to fiscal year 2019 for a project that the Secretary determines no longer needs rental assistance and use such recaptured funds for current needs. ”

    The average, and that means a number expressing the central or typical value in a set of data, for White Americans is 105. 70 is around average for Indians and Africans. American blacks average at about 75, I think. A White person with a 70 IQ would be considered mentally handicapped and put into special schools and then a group home where he could be helped out. A black with the same IQ would get to be a professor at Harvard. An Indian with an IQ over 90 usually has the brains to flee his country unless he’s a member of the high elite. Smart Africans just take over their countries and party like Idi Amin.

    I think that a lot of people might have misunderestimated Trump. I think that they’ve clearly missed what the real motivation for building the wall on US southern border could be. And I think that the real motivation is called – China.

    Trump is obviously a scholar, he has been staying up late and trying to figure out what makes the Chinese tick, and the answer that he has come up with is – The Great Wall of China. It brings tons of revenues, plus it’s protecting China from the Mongols.

    So, Trump decided to copy this brilliant idea – build the Great Wall of America – which will not only protect US from the Mongols, but from the Hells Angels too, – i.e. various biker gangs from Mexico.

    That’s what he meant when he said that the “Mexicans are going to pay for the wall”. They will flock to the wall in millions – generating enormous sums of money as tourists, while at the same time the wall is going to serve its primary function of keeping them away on a more permanent basis. Tourism yes, but immigration no. I think it’s pure genius.

    That’s because Trump/GOP cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21.

    Which has led to a hiring boom and wage competition in many sectors. While the government isn’t reaping the whirlwind in income taxes, payroll tax revenues have increased 3%.

    The high corporate income tax rate was driving some corporate headquarters out of the U.S. under Obama.

    Despite the drop in corporate income taxes, tax revenues still increased overall to 1.7 trillion which is 14 billion dollars higher than FY 2017.
    https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/trump-tax-cuts-federal-revenues-deficits/

    The Trump tax cuts haven’t been in place that long and tax revenues will very likely increase each year.

    The problem is not one of tax revenues but out of control bipartisan spending. Social Security and Medicare should be off limits. It’s time to make budget cuts to welfare, the military, the police state (CIA, FBI, NSA, etc.) and eliminate pork barrel spending.

    We’ve blown trillions in regime change wars. The problem is not old people collecting SS and Medicare who paid into the system their entire lives but corrupt and irresponsible Congressman, Senators and presidents.

    Free trade schemes allowing American companies to move offshore with no penalty have shrunk our industrial tax base. Since you’re laser focused on income tax revenue if we brought back the five million or so jobs lost since NAFTA was passed that would lead to a windfall in income tax revenue and help shore up SS and Medicare obligations.

    The left, with their Soviet economics of taxing and regulating everything to death, is a proven failure.

    I just recently learned she’s of Jewish descent

    Fake News, perhaps trolling.

    Ann Coulter has no Jewish ancestry at all.

    Her ancestry is entirely NW European (i.e., classically American), including ancestors present in both Southern and Northern states, a fairly large portion of which is colonial stock, and some 19th-century ancestors from Germany and Ireland. It appears all her ancestors were in the USA by the time of the Civil War, and her ancestry appears to be overwhelmingly Protestant. She really is, in this ethnocultural sense, a classically American figure.

    The closest name to anything looking even potentially Jewish in her ancestry is the Weissinger line. Ann’s grandfather was:

    Hunter Hart Weissinger, later Martin, printmaker, b. Paducah, Ky., 8 Dec. 1897, d. Paducah, Ky., 25 Sept. 1954 m. [ca. 1923]

    This line traces to Hunter H. Weissinger (Martin)’s German-born g.-g.-grandfather:

    Georg Weissinger, b. Weilheim, Württemberg, 16 July 1769, d. Perry Co., Ala., 20 April 1837

    Georg Weissinger was in the USA by the mid 1780s. He was a Christian, a Lutheran — and lies buried at a Charleston, SC, Lutheran cemetery.

    Ann Coulter likely has ~0.0% Jewish ancestry.

    Let me however point out re the above that you cant just look at one source or year as long as certain tax policies are in effect.
    My purposes in judging Trump’s tax and economic policy ….. is to see what is going to happen in the near future …..look at interactive chart at this link:….use your cursor to move over the graph to see the increase in tax revenues by the year.

    https://infogram.com/untitled-1h7j4dnrqz5x6nr?live

    Final numbers aren’t out for 2018 but total receipts were up by 1% in the first 11 months of Fiscal Year 2018. It isnt going to be much higher in the 12th month report.

    A lot of people think the economy is going great….BUT watch the FED’s raising interest rates.
    They are trying to tamp down inflation. Because as we learned in 2008, asset price appreciation driven by the availability of cheap credit is not sustainable. Eventually, it will collapse.

    Trump of course is mad at the FED …lol…..he wants asset values to increase.

    My contention is that we will have a slow down……then when a 1% increase in tax revenues meets a 7% rise in federal spending + a slowing of consumer spending due to higher interest rates that hits soft and hard goods retail resulting in job layoffs…..well then, its going to be a bumpy ride.

    There are any number of ways it could go. Here are two well-known attempts to find organic nations in the overbloated USA, increasingly simply an economic-zone:

    Garreau (1981) and Woodward (2011) were not exactly proposing successor states, but the framework is there. There is also McCulloch. Some blending of the two approaches may be most likely. We will see which direction we go in the 2020s. Ann Coulter sounds ready to endorse secession at this point (“America is over”), following the major Trump betrayal of last week.

    ______________________

    Audacious Epigone posts relatively regularly on this topic. In May 2018, he posted a summary of Reuters polling data that showed substantial “in-principle” support for secession:

    Q. [Do you] Support or oppose the idea of your state peacefully withdrawing from the USA and the federal government? (polling mid 2014)

    — White Americans, born mid 1960s to mid 1990s (n=5,356)
    — — Oppose 47.4%
    — — Support 27.1%
    — — Don’t Know 25.5%

    — White Americans, b. mid 1960s to mid 1990s, Education “Beyond College” (n=603)
    (i.e., the Leadership Class)
    — — Oppose 72.1%
    — — Support 21.1%
    — — Don’t Know 6.7%

    These are not insignificant numbers at all for “Support.”

    Why do whites here associate every middle or lower upper-middle class opinion with Jews? Anyone who earns in the middle five figures, comes from middle-class suburbs of a major metropolis, is not an evangelical Protestant, has graduated from university, possesses a bright-normal IQ is a “Jew”.

    Also, to what degree has high tech helped whites? More whites are unemployed and poor now and the middle-class shrunken since the nineties and Smart phones have not made a single difference.

    Less 3o year olds today can purchase a house than in 1985. What difference does it make if Gen Y males living in their parents basement have a Smartphone and can communicate on social media?

The Chinese influx into Canada and Australia has been astounding. The locals now refer to Vancouver as Hongcouver. In terms of affluence, Australia and Canada are the most prosperous. In terms of livability and decency, New Zealand excels. If you had to pick one place to live on the planet, Tasmania would be close to ideal……the further away from Hobart, the better.

    Mestizos and US blacks are some of the toughest, most primitive and fearless people on earth. They take over from the street-level.

    Chinese took over certain Canadian or Australian cities from the top down, not by bringing crime to the streets like US minorities.

    They are not interested in physically threatening whites because they view whites as untouchables who exist to provide a country with a stable environment to lay their nest eggs. To them, whites in Australia or Canada are basically middle-class bumpkins and American as white trash run.

    American hicks who vote GOP seem to think America is the greatest country in the world but Australia and Canada actually have a higher standard of living. I’ve lived in Canada, Dubai, Asia and my standard of living was lowest in Phoenix. By far.

    Tech billionaires are purchasing New Zealand citizenship. That is a major trend that Derb mentioned. New Zealand is stable and clean and if the US collapses, they want a place to move to. Moving to NZ won’t affect them at all.

    Perhaps those rural communities have a problem generating real wealth given their resource conditions. On the other hand those that appear wealthy may not have actually generated real wealth but rather debt.

    Look at these supposedly affluent nations and how much they owe:

    https://moneyinc.com/20-countries-currently-debt/

    I’m not saying you can’t live well on debt and create an illusion of material wellbeing and wealth, that is if you can find someone to trust you with their money. Now who do these supposedly super rich nations: USA, Japan, China, France, UK, Norway, Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany, etc. all ultimately owe money to? Are these countries actually solvent? I suppose they are as long as they’re paying interest on their everincreasing loans and their creditors accept that, but is this really wealth generation?

  187. This is easily the costliest mistake of Trump’s tenure. It falls under the category of “he couldn’t leave well enough alone and now things are worse” category. By all accounts, the stop-gap spending measure he could have signed in December was better. It provided more for the border wall, and none of these poison pills which were clearly put in there as an FU to Trump for shutting down the government (both by the Dems and the RINOs). And speaking of the shutdown, the Frds are now getting a 1.9% cost-of-living adjustment, which was also not part of the December agreement. This was also passed this month by an overwhelming veto-proof margin., even in the solidly-Republican Senate. Clearly another FU from Congress to the president.

I did not vote for them — I voted for him and that means as to my position in this context — whose its. what’s its, have no standing. I support this executive, more to the point, I supported this executive to a very particular agenda. Like has absolutely noting to do with it. I may like him til the cows come home. He was not elected to be him. He was elected as himself representing the office of the president predicated on a very specific agenda.

    I have no idea why you are interjecting Sec Clinton or the previous executive. This has nothing to do with them. i did not vote for them nor did I find much to cheer about ther tenure. It ,makes no sense to make the comparison when its clear that my vote reflects that I approved of the agenda of the opposing candidate, candidate Trump. Trying to balance the choices I rejected to the one I voted for has no weight.

    Again, utterly nonresponsive to the content. He does not need: a go fund me wall, an act of congress nor a national emergency to build a wall for the nation’s security to replace the existing barrier.

    Nonsense, I supported this executive before he seriously considered running. And I supported the agenda established. He has my support to that agenda. When he veers from that and in fact, heads in the opposing direction, it would be wise for those that supported him, to remind him and stand on the same.
    — this play for some communist agenda is just that a play.
    — their is a growing move toward socialist provisos, which even this president supports, ie, single payer healthcare . . . SSC, Medicaid, medicare, government spending to boost the economy, easing immigration requirements legal and illegal . . . all part and parcel to a socialist agenda.
    Laugh, I am not the least bit impressed with faux distraction of communism. I will put my support for what capitalism means in practice and theory up to his glad handing, back slapping, insider, non swamp draining behavior any day of the week.

    It is a serious mistake to equate my comments or the critique of other supporters as a lack of support, quite the contrary. However, those who settle for anything are settling to the agenda that this president defeated. I am all for being polite and gracious to the opponents I defeated — common courtesy, it would be quite another to spit of the face of people who supported me by supporting the opposition.

    And I will state with no equivocation, that’s exactly how it reads, a kick of sand in the face. Laugh, exactly, it has been two years.

    Last year I decided to take on my body head on. I had put a good deal of weight again after an accident. I had to reject the advice to take it easy. And it was painful in every way, but once a corner was turned, the pain decreased as the progress increased. I went from two sessions seven days a week to several smaller sessions three days a week. If not for the press early on, I would not have made the progress – now.

    The hard work should have been engaged in the start. Having caved so many times he has not strength to turn the corner. He may curve it a tad, but said curve, will have bit a minor effect. As a supporter it my job to press to the goals, not applaud retreats.

  215. Just to be clear,

    There is no commentary that indicates I support communism or socialism. And the attempt by way of any suggestion that is not the case because I critique this executive would be incorrect.

    “Leaving the country”

    I left the US 20 years and it is much harder than you think. Australia, NZ and Canada are incredibly difficult to get a passport for. It takes years to immigrate. I tried.

    There is no welfare in Asia and you can never be a citizen. You’d have to open a bar or some survival business.

    You cannot just show up in Australia or Canada and expect a job and a passport because America has gone down the toilet.

    Many Americans live their entire life as English teachers overseas with no intention of returning and one day they are 55 and cannot get a work visa. They go back broke and penniless to a country they have not been in 20 years, which always gets worse, with no house, little money.

    Canada regards Americans as the dysfunctional family next door that you build a fence around. They want everybody BUT Americans.

    I left the US at 25 with no spouse, dependents or credit card debt. And it was still difficult.

    I never claimed that the consumer price inflation was high at the moment, although it is for some things and not for others. However, in general, inflation destroys and discourages savings. Even a simpleton like yourself can understand that a dollar saved today is going to be worth much less in 20-30 years. Also, part of the reason that real wages have stagnated is that consumer prices have not been allowed to fall in many cases despite huge productivity gains that would have otherwise made things a lot cheaper for workers. And last but not least, there is a massive asset price bubble and rents are skyrocketing.

Scarcity is a fact of nature and more Asians in the U.S. means less everything for whites. And why should an American company hire an Indian over a white American? It is astounding that this kind of idiotic disloyalty is allowed to continue. It’s bad for white Americans, and it’s bad for India for having lost a skilled worker. More diversity always equals less whites as a percentage of the total population. Does Japan need more white people? Does Mexico need more white people? Does Nigeria need more white people? Does Saudi Arabia need more white people? How do you think the citizens of those countries would answer such a question?

    “…Why do whites here associate every middle or lower upper-middle class opinion with Jews?…”

    These opinions are manufactured. The goal is to force the idea that anyone against mass immigration is low class poor redneck. Thomm is trying to exacerbate these feelings and separate Whites from each other. Most likely he’s a Jewish Hasbara paid to foment disintegration of White social structure. The Jews stick together. You don’t hear them attacking Jews that are poorer. There’s not many poor Jews because they have capital resources available to them that are not available to Whites. For example in one case I read about a Jewish Women need a living she was given enough money in a loan to buy an apartment complex. She wasn’t going to get rich but she had a good solid living from this. Clippers owner Donald Sterling admitted that he got low or no interest loans to by the sports team ha bought on tape. Thomm would like you to attack the average less wealthy White person. What if we had banks that would front us loans to buy apartment buildings to bring Whites out of poverty??? Of course that would open up massive Jew news attacks on the Whites.

    It’s all a scam, a lie and judging from what Trump just signed Trump is a scam too. I suppose it’s likely he was a scam all along. Whites in the US will either be suppressed and eventually killed off or we’ll have to become like the Jews and determinedly act only in our interest.

    Time to consider alternatives (peaceful, please) to political solutions as there are none.

    What a joke. Do you even understand the ignorance and foolishness of those words? You will get nowhere if you are only willing to peacefully oppose an enemy that is more than willing to use force against you.

    So why do you categorically oppose the 2nd amendment so much?

    Your insistence on nonviolence is to the 2nd amendment what an insistence on hate speech legislation is to the 1st. A direct violation of it’s core concept. It’s not protecting your right to fire blanks at them until they are frightened into compliance. Is that what you think?

    Why does your solution have to be peaceful? Do you think maybe it’s because you have been conditioned from an early age to believe that, so as to keep the capacity for the actual change that violent revolution represents (which is why the founders constitutionally protected our ability to access lethal weapons) monopolized in the hands of the enemy, leaving us with no options but to organize to wave signs around, throw our cries at the deaf ears of our crooked politicians and lament the hopelessness of our situation while we quiz each other to see who can come up with a peaceful solution to a mess that the founder’s explicitly intended for us to resolve with violence?

    The way people tiptoe through the tulips when it comes to violence, out of fear of some social consequence is pathetic. Like people who fear being ostracized for using the wrong gender pronoun. Is truth or popularity more important to you? Is it fear of goverment retaliation that silences you? If you get violent with the masters, the masters will get violent with you? Is that it? You’re scared to use violence because you’re not the only ones who can use it?

    When you forsake the tools you were given to liberate yourself from tyranny with, you are empowering the tyrants. So you think doing this makes you better than them? Do you think they care that you are assuming the non-violent moral high ground while they use the very tools you condemn to extinguish your people and civilization? Do you think that maybe you are playing right into their hands?

    So pick one. Do you want to ‘live’ non-violently under genocidal tyranny. Or do you want to violently oppose it? If it’s the former, sit quietly. If it’s the later, stop wasting more breath looking for new ways to speak truth to power and embrace the actual power you were given and, for now at least, still have.

    We’re just a few short generations from being overrun by enough non-whites hordes to see the constitution itself scrapped entirely. They and their cultures have no concept of it’s value and will voluntarily throw in their support for disarmament and mounting free speech limitations when the traitors you are still trying to peacefully replace advertise those plans with claims that it will end all violence and racism.

    We all know what’s on the horizon. The question is who among us knows what it’s actually going to take to pull the brakes and avoid that fate? The masses need to be as awake to the reality of what I am saying here as they have become to the reality of fake news in the age of Trump.

    State manufactured inflation and state manufactured deflation are both bad for the economy. Deflation caused by market forces is desired. In a world with a stable, market driven money supply, long term mild annual deflation is heaven on earth. Productivity gains mean falling prices due to less labor content per unit of output… Deflation (and the concomitant rising real wage) is the true purpose of a properly functioning economy. The fact that it is the kryptonite of the fractional reserve financial system is a problem for the bankers to solve (or avoid). Unfortunately, the bankers have solved it by inventing the ultimate “end run” in the form of unlimited credit creation by central bank fiat. In this way they impoverish all of us chronically, rather than personally suffering the acute consequences of their folly.

    He’s done literally nothing to change the demographic descent of America.

    So Texas turns blue, Democrats become the only party (not that RINOs have been any better) America descends into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brand lunacy, Trump’s ‘wall’ aka partial fence is destroyed, borders are dissolved, constitution, right to bear arms dissolved, free speech limited to the point of nonexistence by hate speech laws, Supreme Court is dissolved.

    Who is really utterly uninformed here?

    -We’re not getting a real, Israel-caliber wall at all, much less one the full length of the border.

    -EVEN IF WE DID, we’re not doing anything to stop or reverse the 1965 Hart-Celler Act, which means half the enemy’s army is still here, fruitfully multiplying, on this side of the border, with the ability to vote to destroy any and everything that Trump supposedly accomplishes.

    -We’re not implementing Federal Voter ID laws to reveal to the population the extent of foreign subversion in our elections

    -We’re not doing anything to stop foreign lobbies from influencing our politicians, in fact, we’re roundly condemning the only politician who does, because she’s also an incestuous black muslim psychopath.

    Does anything else really matter in the face of these truths? Even pretending that Kavanaugh and Gorsuch are somehow not going to end up going full ‘Art of the Fold’ like Trump, does it matter?

    Demography is destiny. Best case scenario, our future looks like Brazil. Worst case, more like Haiti, Rhodesia or South Africa.

    Only one thing is going to fix this mess, and it requires white Americans to finally break their cradle-to-grave indoctrination that has them only willing to accept non-violent solutions to this predicament and finally remembering what the 2nd amendment is for.

    And we are a couple decades at most before the demographics in America have shifted enough to find popular support for dismantling the 2nd amendment entirely. Between then and now, we will still have to deal with the imposition of regulations aimed at weakening it through ammo restrictions and such. But the browner America gets, the bolder and more successful the gun-grabbers will get. And Trump is doing nothing to stop us from getting browner. More likely he’s about to break that campaign promise for no more unnecessary wars go play Team America: World Police in Venezuela for the Jews to install their selected pro-Israel politician, and in doing so create a brand new ‘refugee crisis’ that will result in an even greater tide of Latin American banana republic socialism dumping in over our borders.

    AMERICAN IMMIGRATION TO AUSTRALIA

    In 1981 thousands of American families of Air Traffic Controllers whose strike was broken by Reagan moved to Australia because Reagan enacted a law preventing them from ever working for the Fed gov again. They possessed a niche skill that Australia seemingly needed.

    A little later in the eighties, thousands of mining specialists from US coal country moved to Perth to work for Argyle and Perth has a section known as “Little Appalachia”.

    In general, however, Australia really does not want garden variety American blue-collar tradespeople like plumbers, electricians. Run-of-the-mill white-collar types like myself (Graphic Artist) are not eligible-I tried to immigrate as a younger man.

    Australia cannot allow middle-class Americans easy entry or you would be overrun by thousands or perhaps even millions of American whites seeking a safe and uniformly middle-class country to live in.

    In accepting the Chinese, Australia is simply following the pattern of the rest of Southeast Asia of importing a Chinese syndicate of wealthy family business cartels like Malaysia or the Philippines. New Zealanders living in their cars because of Chinese investment is no different than Filipinos living in squats because of Chinese there.

    Hispanics and Muslims take over the streets. This is merely thuggery and the ruthlessness of criminal groups willing to kill. Chinese are not going to take over King’s Cross criminal action, but rather Australian property markets and other economic sectors.

    Remember, slavery was the law of the land at the time too. Plus, only property owners (which you would not have been) did not have the right to vote. Remember this – they didn’t want you to vote any more than they wanted black slaves to vote.

    That does nothing to prove that you (a 70-IQ wastematter white, who is not part of the functional white race) has anything in common with the founders/framers (who were among the smartest people around, and had provisions to ensure your ilk could not vote).

    Wally, I have the time now to read your link to the Washington Times “Giving Trump’s accomplishments their due”…. the stuff about defeating ISIS…haha… I’ll give you a mulligan on that one!

    1, The appointment of Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.

    Big deal. Good cop/ bad copped to death. First thing crybaby Kavanaugh does is vote with “obamacre” Roberts to “punt” regarding Gee/Anderson vs Planned Parenthood.

    2. Cracked down on sanctuary cities.

    This was, of course, over-ruled by the 9th circuit court which only has jurisdiction in Western states.

    Here in the illegal sanctuary city of Philadelphia, Trump and former AG Sessions [ Trump’s been on his back-foot since this lousy appointment], have been flummoxed to date,[D] Mayor Kenny winning an injunction -although the rank and file are divided, ICE having much local law enforcement support.

    3. Engineered a tax cut.

    I already addressed how the donor class is the primary recipient of this generational largess. For some reason you cant make the connection to Adelson.

    Some items are on point, to Trumps credit. Trannies out of military. The Paris climate accord. XL pipeline…

    I am irked by the gratuitous virtue signaling, the endless holocaust racket, the endless “loans” to Israel,probably towards a trillion in my lifetime.

    If Trump’s going to continuously pander to Blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, women, and jews then the demographic that put him in power will revolt.

    2 years was 1 too many- without at least completely dismantling this Steel dossier outrage, but like I have previously noted: Trump doesnt have any authority; even over simple kerfuffles regarding press passes.

    Its not a matter to blithely LOL… these miserable neocon retreads, that loopy daughter [ out spending tens of millions of OUR money, empowering Middle- eastern women to forsake their families for material gains in the globohomo economy] Chabad House Kushner, Netanyahu’s point man….

    This again… “White” just means European caucasoid. Irish, Italians, and Poles are, and always have been, considered white. However, that doesn’t mean all whites were considered to be equal. Ashkenazi Jews are hybrids with Semitic blood and are distinctly non-European in their traditions and culture. It was a mistake to consider them white. Hispanics (Mestizos/Amerindians), Arabs, Persians, and Afghans are obviously not European caucasoids. This attempt to rewrite history started with (((Noel Ignatiev’s))) book “How the Irish Became White.” Perhaps you are familiar with him?

    Remember, slavery was the law of the land at the time too.

    Slavery was, of course, wrong, but white advocacy and slavery advocacy are not the same thing. Bringing African slaves to this country was one of the greatest mistakes in U.S. history.

    Plus, only property owners (which you would not have been) did not have the right to vote. Remember this – they didn’t want you to vote any more than they wanted black slaves to vote.

    It’s amazing, you’ve been wrong so many times, but you keep digging yourself further in a hole. It’d be best to cut your losses and run.

  258. I have long subscribed to the idea that not only is Trump a phony belief wise but that perhaps he never intended to be President. I think Bannon may have suggested that no one was more supersized or more unprepared for Trump’ s election than Trump. After all everyone predicted he’d lose. Why shouldn’t he have believed them? Clinical narcissist that he is, maybe he just planned to shoot his mouth off to adoring crowds, with that Zionist casino magnate paying the tab. Then retire as the right wing’s fallen hero. Probably get a TV show on Fox – The Trump Hour.There he could wax vulgarly about how he would have done it so differently from HRC.

    Now we are stuck with an accidental President. But he is really no worse than HRC. Actually he has inadvertently gotten a few ideas front and center that the Democrats and the GOP hoped would stay sidelined forever.

    Maybe something good will come of that? One thing Trump has done for me is make me wonder what we could do if we had a genuine STRONG WHITE MAN who is willing to kick over the traces of this phony democracy and free enterprise system

    No matter what, we can’t discount that HRC would have nominated somebody far worse than Garland and RBG would have retired leaving her to nominate another shrew. We would be sweating out Kennedy as well.

    False. They were only considered white in terms of voting rights, but NOT in a social and cultural sense. Ask any non-WN Italian, and he will set you straight.

    Remember, in the early years of the country, only land-owners could vote. You would not have been a land-owner, so you would not have been allowed to vote. Get a clue.

    Every leftists (WNs are, of course, leftists) imagines that in their preferred, selectively described utopia of the past, that they would be calling the shots. In reality, white men of the lowest ability were just used as expendable cannon fodder. You certainly would not have been a landowner, and thus would not have been able to vote.

    How many times do I have to school you?

    Indonesia – which is in Asia – is a lovely country, full of people who are polite and kind. They often have little but are not obsessed with money.

    The people of Indonesia use toilets and are very clean indeed.

    I could walk across Jakarta at midnight through the poorest areas in total confidence that I would not be attacked and robbed.

    A poor country, but not even remotely a shithole.

    Americans like Attila the Hen believe that every country besides the post-industrial Midwest exurb they live is a hell hole and the US has the highest standards of living even if their are potholes in their main street.

    It is why the 1% can take tax cuts and the middle class is taxed to death.

    Hen herself is probably of Slavic parentage and of course Eastern Europe is still marginally poorer than the US so she has no other metric by which to measure her standard of living.

    Her patriotism is knee-jerk. She has never been to Asia but will immediately pipe up that it is a “hell hole”.

    This sort of patriotism is necessary in order to convince Americans like her that obscure ME countries or not to question the degree to which the wealthy rip her off and refuse to pay a livable wage.

    That pretty much sums it up. He grasped what he needed to say in order to get elected. But he didn’t care about any of it. Apparently he doesn’t care about re-elected. Or, perhaps, he actually too dim to grasp that to be re-elected he had to really try to do something. He did accomplish something for us: He gave us four years to figure out what we’re going to do.

    Not Amiri Baraka (who is dead, I believe). Write in yourself. I’ll write you in, too. You’re probably right. Trump should be punished. The humiliation of LOSING is what he deserves.

    We knew, and he must have known, that there would be fierce opposition. Probably insuperable opposition. But I hoped that he would fight for the things that he said he was going to fight for. He hasn’t. He has completely rolled over. That’s why people are abandoning him. Not because he lost. That’s not surprising. But because he didn’t fight.
