How the Trumpen-Fuhrer Operates
Watching how Trumpenfuhrer operates, I have noticed one of his worst tactics. He will find a group of people who desperately need help -- the Dreamers, for instance, or the children being taken into custody at our Southern borders. He will hurt them, and then say 1) I didn't do it (a lie) and 2) If you want me to stop hurting them, then you must give me my way by passing such-and-such an unpopular legislative measure. He is quite happy to hurt other people and play on our sense of compassion to get his own way. Quite a President we have here !
Poor children. It ain’t right.
Separating families for breaking our laws is happening a lot. Is it necessary? I mean kids growing up with their parents in jail ain’t right. What’s the solution?
Democrats are down at the southern border raising hell about this.
Why aren’t they raising hell about this Happening in the inner city. Been going on for decades. Looks like the Dems have a whole new minority group to exploit.
"If you gave Trump an enima, you could bury him in a matchbox." Seriously!
(Originally and accurately stated about Jerry Falwell, by Christopher Hitchens.) To use Trump's style of hyperbole, no politician in the whole history of humankind has been filled and ejected more BS than Trump. Just the facts, ma'am, sorry. Am I Trump-hater? Disgusting things call for disgust. It is not personal in any way. He has more than proven he does not know or care about facts and truth. Whatever best serves his self-interest--for image, profit, or to escape responsibility--he will say and act on. No moral compass or sense of decency. Study his history. Research what he has said. See how he has acted. "Depraved indifference" to others and anything but Trump is his unique calling. This is pure observation, visible to any that had the eyes to see. Like watching a rabid animal. There are distinctly defined behaviors to make that assessment. One doesn't hate such an animal; they are sick and cannot help themselves in acting and doing what they do, like biting and giving rabies. Same with Trump.
I feel fairly certain that by his low character and self-absorption that he will finally do something horrifically awful (that should have been his border policy or any of his few thousand lies) or the gross accumulation of his depraved indifference to his followers, America, morality, ethics, the law, and anything under the sun but himself over time will eventually wake you up. Until then, let him be your voice of anger and revenge and fear; he's good at that. Call me just a partisan, low-life hack Trump-hater. I get to sadly chuckle "just wait." The day is coming. It is inevitable. And I will not be there to say "I told you so" but to offer my condolences; we both suffered under this hobgoblin of mediocrity and menace.
So you want to stop illegal immigrants from crossing the border
So you want to stop illegal immigrants from crossing the border well the answer is simple enough.
ICE raided a meatpacking plant today and arrested 146 illegals working there that's a start, but will that company be fined 146 million, not a chance but that would stop the problem!!!! but when they're not given a huge fine they will have 146 new immigrants by the end of the week.
NO jobs no reason to be here.
So, Trump caves..things are back to "normal" now?
Families stay together while they are detained. After a period of 20 or so days, they aren't allowed, by our laws, to be detained any more, so we let them go free into America with a court summons to appear for a hearing in a few months. They don't do that, and continue to live their lives here, and demand that they be taken care of by us, and we do that.
Trump signed an order today that sends a message out to the whole world that if you come here as a "family" it will be easy for you.
Let's see what happens now.
By the time Trump is out of office, our country will be flooded with unchecked illegals who have not had a medical exam to make sure they are not carrying diseases...who have not had any other testing to show they have mental problems and who just flow into our country by the billions. Those trying to come here legally say, shit, I'm done with that, and we become a new, bigger Mexico. Good luck when our financial structure collapses. I'm really glad it will take enough time that I will be dead and my children and grandchildren won't be around. I think it will probably take about 200 years for this to happen. It's sad, but I'm glad I won't be around to see it.
"I really don't care, do u?"
This was on the back of Melania Trump's jacket. Yet I don't believe Melania was saying that she didn't care about the children separated at the border. It was, I feel, a sarcastic quip at those who don't really care but use the separation of families at the border as a political football. Obviously Melania does care, it is her signature passion and message to help stop bullying—and could there be any worse bullying than her husband's “zero tolerance” policy. Her husband's “zero tolerance” policy, not the Democrats. And it is policy, as several in the WH administration already admitted, contradicting Homeland Security Secretary Neilsen.
Her predecessor at DHS and current White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, previously told NPR that family separation "would be a tough deterrent," and said on CNN that it would "deter more movement along this terribly dangerous network." On Monday, Steve Wagner, a top Health and Human Services official in charge of managing children at the border, told reporters that "we expect that the new policy will result in a deterrence effect." This abhorrent policy is a purposeful deterrent measure by the WH, as well as a possible lever to pry money out of Democrats for Trump's Border Wall (though Trump recently called it a “Boarder Wall” and misspelled “seperation”: typical).
When Melania arrived at the facility, she said this: “And I’d also like to ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible.” She is sincere, and the Left can get pretty picayune about appearances, as when last year they went nuts over Melania wearing stiletto heels to visit hurricane victims.
I still haven't figured out why Hillary lost
I still haven't figured out why Hillary lost.
Was it the Russian uranium deal? or was it wikileaks ? or was it Podesta ? or Comey ? or was it a sexual predator husband ? or was a staff's husband Wiener immoral pictures ? was it subpoena violation? or was it the corrupt foundation ? or was it the congressional lies ? or was it the Benghazi bungle ? or was it pay for play ? or was it travel gate scandal ? or was it whitewater scandal ? or the Cattle Gate scandal ? Or the Trooper Gate scandal ? Or was it the $15 million for Chelsea's apt bought with foundation money ? Or Comey's investigation ? Or her husbands interference with Loretta Lynch and the investigation ? Or was it stealing debate questions ? Was it forensically deleting 30,000 emails ? The secret server in her house? Was it the Seth Rich murder ? Was it calling half the USA deplorable ? Was it the underhanded treatment of Bernie Sanders ? Was it the Vince Foster murder ? The Jennifer Flowers assault ? The Jennifer Flowers settlement ? The Paula Jones law suit ? The $800,000 Paula Jones settlement ? The lie about taking on sniper fire ? The impeachment ? The 6 billion $ she "lost" when in charge of the state dept ? The 10 million she took for the pardon of Marc Rich ? Or was it because she is hateful & lying?
Gee, I just cant quite put my finger on it, but it seems to be right in front of me.
Looks like my part of the world is fed up with you folks
This is a sign on I-40 just down the road from me. I dig it!
Cleaning up Trump agenda will take generations
Trump repeated prioritize’s cheap political wins over the massive costs they will impose tomorrow.
Trump is thrashing the planet when he pulled out of the Paris accord. He cancelled NASA’s carbon-monitoring research programs, rolled back EPA regulations which monitoring on Clean Air and water which now will become dirtier and expose more Americans to toxic chemicals and Coal ash waste being dumped into our waterways. Who will pay for this in the Future (millennials)
Trumps unfounded tax cuts is a hugh inter generational transfer of wealth to the upper 1% of wage earners. (THE BIG LIE IS THE TAX CUT WILL PAY FOR ITSELF) through added growth and the CBO numbers dispute the Trump lie it’s at $2. 4 trillion now last year Trump did not hit 3% growth so the deficit number grows. Trump promised 4% growth per year and that is the number needed just to keep the deficit number at $1.5 trillion. But as you can see it’s growing. Trumps first year average was 2.9% his average for 2018 has dropped to 2.6% if this trend continues the deficit from the Trump tax cuts will be massive. It’s taking on the same trend as the Bush tax cuts. Do unemployment is down that’s a good thing but no growth and stagnation of wages we have another recession on its way and who gets the blame (DEMOCRATS) who pays for this ridiculous tax cut millennials.
What Trump supporters refuse to recognize the economy trend of 76 straight months of job growth lowered rate from 10.3% to 4.5% and continued into the Trump presidency is great. But now the right wing ignores that under Trump we have almost no wage growth, productivity is now flat( TRUMP INFLICTED TRADE WAR) which was increasing under Obama. Trump tax cuts deficit grows, inequality widening (SOUNDS LIKE BUSH ALL OVER AGAIN)
Trmps firdt three months of 2018 Trump growth rate dropped to 2.6%, productivity went flat. Where are all those whiners and complainers when Obama was in Office. Consumer confidence is up because unemployment is down, but this will change when this trade war goes into effect unemployment will rise and prices will go up. Trump will blame democrats and Trump supporters will believe the White House Idiot.
The US confidence is up but a lot of our economy is not fueled by Trump it’s being fueled in part by the European Unions steady rebound and growth. If Trump continues to attack our European on trade fees and leaves WTO and NAFTA this country is headed for a Depression.
(WHO PAYS THE MILLENNIALS PAY)
Polls are now showing that Americans are now giving Obama more credit for today’s economy which Obama is at 50% to 39% for Trump. If the continues the GOP can kiss the House goodbye and possibly the Senate. But The ignorant Trump supporter ignores all of this and they listen to Fox News and all other facts are fake.
Pew research Center that monitors international polls, did a survey of 37 of our allies countries about there views on the US in almost every country our image has deteriorated it has been a double digit drop in one year. Our allies have even stopped meeting with our ambassadors because they can’t trust anything that comes out of a Trump administration officials.
Trump has thrown tantrums on the international stage, alienating and aggravating our military allies, both at the G7 summit. He has publicly pandered to Puntin, Tayyip Endogan of Turkey, Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban and other thug dictators and Humanrights violators, all to the dismay to our foreign allies.
He praises North Korean totalitarian leader and Human rights violator Kim Jong Un who starved and imprisons millions of his people and had murdered members of his family. Trump calls him a strong leader, a funny guy.
He praised Kim Jong Un and wants to allow Russia back into the G8. Russian was removed from the G8 for invading a solvent country and Trump wants to applaud this guy.
But now coming out of this country is photos of babies being ripped away from there mothers and put into cages. Then Trump lies and says it’s a democratic law so ask democrats to Change the law. (BS THIS IS A TRUMP POLICY PUT IN PLACE BY TRUMPS JUSTICE DEPARTMENT) THE UN commission for Human rights has personally condemned Trumps policy calling it unconscionable and child abuse. Congrats Trump you have received the recognition that you and you’re supporters deserve by now being put on the list as a human rights violator. Trump has destroyed any good will the US had built in the international community. (Millennials will have to live with the consequences)
Trumps America is alienating our strong military allies. Trumps America does not care about our close allies and you can’t deny the fact that Trump has attacked them personally and now creating a trade war with our allies as he advances his agenda of praising dictators around the world as strong leaders.
I just can’t believe when Trump slogan of make America great again, was to create a struggle of all against all. That we would be labeled a human rights violator and praising dictators, while destroying our relationship with our allies that fought and died for this country.
I want to take the time to thank all evangelicals for giving this country Donald Trump who exemplifies you’re core belief of strong family values. He has had 4 children by 3 different marriages, he had been proven to cheat on his 3 different Marriages of open display of cheating, he was proven to be with a porno star and a Beauty Queen, paid hush money to silence these women, he is now labeled a human rights violator, he supported a Pedaphile for the senate. He supports the abuse of women by grabbing there pussy. Thank you But please tell me how this makes America great. Evangelicals don’t want America great they want a White America.
Rainbow Flag at VA hospital
What a totally disrespectful act at the VA hospital, Fort Wayne, Indiana. The hospital administrator and person who rsised the flag ought to be fired now! There is no place in the VA for such disregard for our service flags and our Old Glory. This type of contempt should be dealt with swiftly by dismissing all peoples involved in this debacle.
I'm a veteran and I'm fed up with the VA's incompetence; therefore, I do not choose to use their service.
