Promises Made.
Promises Kept.

He just gave McConnell and his Flake a little more contrast with the #MAGA Wing of the Republican Party.

Get ready for a helluva internal fight. I just gave $50 to Roy Moore, somebody I don't agree with much but I know he will vote right on Budgets, Borders, and Balanced Trade. We don't need another #DitchMitch #GOPe Flake Fake in Stranger.

Here comes the big fat bomb. Arpaio's pardon was carefully timed.

The signalling of protecting America Firsters is a shot across the bow for the 2018 Primaries. Right now two cuckservatives, the incumbent McConnell backed Senator Flake of AZ (a comprehensive immigration mass increase "Reform" guy) and McConnell backed Stranger of Arizona (vs. Roy Moore for Sessions' vacated seat) are trailing the #MAGA backed candidates. GOPe Candidates will be forced to forced to clarify their position Mass Immigration, Repeal & Replace Obamneycare, and a failure to approve real Budget (going on multiple years, right Ryan?), as well their (lack of) support as proven America Firsters like Arpaio and opposition to #AltLeft Antifa groups and the Iconoclasts (Statue Removers). Not to mention the Senate's underhanded strategic move to stop recess appointments by Trump.

The base is paying attention and has seen the inaction and excuses.

The War on the #AltLeft - whom nailed Arpaio with contempt for doing his job - is mostly about the Internal Party Struggle between #MAGA and the #Swamp. Trump isn't worried about convincing the hardline Democrat Base or the Media (which will call the Hurricane a Nazi Storm that is Trump's Fault). Whopping them with bravado forces GOPe to take their side or give in, or lose the primaries.

Bannon said it: "They are not going to give you your country back without a fight". McConnell's wife profits on every China export to the USA.

Trade Unions aren't the problem. The decade of red tape to built a residential tower, Anti-Density Laws by current landlords who want to keep supply low and their rentals high, are far more of a problem.

A Californian Developer once told me the Sierra Club and others are fundamentally controlled by wealthy landlords who use it to find excuses to stop residential construction.

The key problem with affordable housing is getting approval to start building, not the cost of building them.

Here are all of Obama's pardons:

https://www.justice.gov/pardon/obama-pardons

I wish there were reasons given for the pardons.

Obama pardoned FALN terrorist Oscar Lopez Riveria who was connected to numerous bloody bombings at attacks, including one in Manhattan that killed 4 people and wounded 63. He was a master bomb maker.

No reason was given. However, the three PR Congressscum, all Democrats, celebrated his release from prison.

Latino/Hispanic is not a race.

Any more than Anglic or Anglophone is a race.

We don't consider Bob Marley, Jackie Chan, Bono, Liza Manelli, and Bishop Tutu to be equally of some Anglic race.

How about most Bollywood Stars? Many speak English; India was a former colony of Britain, too. Their legal and educational system is very Anglified.

Yet Shakira, Sammy Sosa, Carmen Miranda, Cesar Chavez, Hugo Chavez, and Evo Morales are all of some imaginary Hispanic Meta-race, no matter how Black or Indian they are? Even if they laboriously learned Spanish as school and not in the home? Gimme a break.

There is absolutely no biological or even societal reason to consider Latin/Hispanic a race.

After Summer Break, a now 1st Grade classmate referred to the Boy by his original male-oriented name, and was taken to the principal's office.

Next: The re-education camp for further infractions.

Going to be some interesting free speech cases here. After all, you can call a mentally handicapped person a "retard" and somebody on psycho pills a "nut" or a lesbian a "Dyke Boxmuncher". Why can't you call a transtrender by their legal birth name?

Can states and localities actually fine somebody for speech?

SJWs and the #AltLeft want that.

PS If a Public (-funded) School or College interferes with the #1A, why doesn't it count as a state officially doing so?

HEY YOU says

" However, the President cannot pardon a state criminal offense."

Arpaio was charged in Federal Court for disobeying the demands of a judge to stop profiling people based on their ethnicity, disregarding the fact that most illegals came over the border from the country Arizona borders on.

Interestingly, Bill Clinton like Obama, pardoned many FALN members for no good reason.Hardly a peep was heard from the same people pulling their hair out over Arpaio.

The freedom fighter excuse falls flat when you realize Puerto Rico has had several referendums and has always voted for the status quo on Independence. It's not like violence was the only recourse because the US Government wasn't allowing a vote.

And of course, Bill Clinton pardoned numerous bank fraud and other White Collar Criminals, like Marc Rich, the only connection seeming to be big donations to him and his political party.

Once you're down to Mentally Incompetent, after Russian Traitor and Neo-Nazi Klan Symp have been terminated as excuses, your dreams are at an end.

And it should be regarded as a coup, and we should keep Lincoln's and Jefferson's advise as to when armed (counter-)revolutions are necessary. In terms of arms and military training, the anti-Trump alliance of the #AltLeft Hipsters and IHLs, the Legacy Media, and mostly #ChickenHawk #NeverTrumpers is at a disadvantage.

In steps Donald Trump, and starts saying exactly what the Democrats have failed to say:

And that's why the Cuck wing of the Republican Party - McConnell, Ryan, McCain, Graham - hate him. Their job was to make sure regardless of whether Democrats or Republicans won, or if the occasional "Real Conservative" won a seat or two, Corporate Socialism continued. Occasionally throwing a bone to a social conservative and economic conservative base in the form of having hearings on Terri Shiavo or the IRS. Dodging of course that the states regulate death laws and the IRS charges you what Congress wants them to, and goes after that nice range of taxpayer that has enough to bother disputing, but not enough to fight in court forever, a few million; but never big companies cheating their asses off.

Controlled Opposition - it's also why both parties like insoluble social/cultural issues so much. The Oligarchs do whatever they want, it's the economy they care about.

The best evidence is how McCain and Graham are pushing Open Borders, except for Canadian Drugs (and Booker, and Tester, and Pelosi...) Or that McCain spent millions in ads touting he was going to repeal Obamacare if re-elected; now he's an opponent. Because it was just for votes. Just like Booker will never vote for Canadian Drugs

I try not to judge. But the BIL was about as straight a shooter as you'll find. No signs of anything you would think was off.

You never can know. I had a friend who's uncle killed himself. Turned out only his best friend knew, not even his wife (who only remembered a few strange calls), but he had been getting death threats for years.

Nobody, not even his Best Friend, knew the why, and when I mean years I mean decades, it must have been something that happened when he was in his 20s.

You never know what can come up to make somebody kill themselves.

One other point - Robin Williams.

Turned out now he was diagnosed with Alzheimers or Dementia. The (increasing severity) of his Depression was mostly because of that diagnosis; he didn't not want to forget and become a vegetable.

One thing to check would be to see if he saw a doctor recently.

Bellingham Bill says

Democrats to their credit mostly (60%) voted against NAFTA, Republicans went 75% for it.

In the early 90s, when there were still Old School Democrats, 40% voted for it, including many that become party leaders of today like Pelosi. NAFTA happened BEFORE the Republicans took back Congress, the 60/40 split by the Democrats guaranteed it's passage. It should have been 99% against.

Almost all modern Democratic Politicians at the Federal level, and most at the State Level, are diehard Neoliberals. The crazy idea we have a shortage of unskilled workers, and adding more mostly unskilled people to the nation, is also a universal belief. We also have no shortage of entry-level professionals, either. There's actually a STEM glut.

.

Meanwhile people who say immigration is wonderful plan to retire to homogenuous countries that really don't allow any immigration, indeed they paid Brazilian Japanese to leave the country. I believe Japan took twenty-four (24) refugees last year, most of whom had Japanese ancestry. But they gave a lot to the UN Refugee Programs to avoid criticism. We should do the same.

That was back when Trump was still Russia's Manchurian President, before he was the leader of the Neo-Nazis.

Yeah, all these middle of the road and even usually conservative columnists bashing Trump

You mean the Controlled Opposition, the kind that love war and intervention and tax cuts for the rich, but when it comes to Building the Wall, Controlling Near-record high Immigration, and fighting the Left takeover of Education, they are completely AWOL.

I'm amazed at all the new-found respect the #AltLeft is doling out to the old Iraq War boosters. Seems the only thing they have in common is TDS.

marcus says

It's almost as if there is some truth to the concerns of many intelligent people that honestly believe Trump is an unstable narcissistic and incompetent President that is very dangerous not only to this country but even to the continuation of life on earth as we know it.

The Media was bashing Trump from the moment he stepped into office. It's amazing Trump's numbers are so high, given the 24-7-365 Media Bashing from just about every major outlet. Whether it's being Putin's stooge or the new Hitler, the Media jumps from narrative to narrative to remove Trump.

EXACTLY what you would expect by Oligarch-controlled Media whose owners profit off of labor arbitrage and outsourcing-then-reimporting-with-no-tariff, while getting a tax brake for the cost of moving overseas.

The time has long come to end The War on Drugs.

Yep, but while it's important to you - and it's eventually happening state-by-state at an increasingly rapid pace - it's not everybody's first and final concern. I believe Tariffs and restricting Immigration and banning immigrants from Sharia-law States and places were there is Civil Wars with Radical Islam is more important.

They're holding on to the fallacy that once they remove Trump, we'll go back to 1990s and 2000s style Conservativism, all about abortion bullshit, which is deader than a doorknob. The Democrats wish for that, too.

We see Amazon and Ebay and other Huge Corporations that profit greatly off outsourced-then-imported goods agreeing with the SPLC, who has Muslim reformers like Majiid Nawaz ylisted as Hate Extremists.

And sure enough, their controlled media HATES anybody who isn't for Open Borders to help their Corporations.

The next phase is to purge the Party of "True Conservatives" who never fund the already-authorized Wall (back in the 90s when Clinton gave lip service to it), constantly remove H1B caps, give tax breaks to outsourcing companies, say they're for Free Trade with Communist China - transferring high tech manufacturing to a rival while banning Canadian Drugs (a NAFTA member FFS!!!), and remaining silent in the face of an outburst of #AltLeft Rage and Violence.

That's hardly surprising, most parties want to deny their opponents more terms. I guarantee there have been high ranking Democrats saying they want to deny Reagan or Bush (or Eisenhower) a second term.

Paul Ryan has worked with Obama to have a non-budget year after year.
Republicans in the Senate, like McCain, who campaigned on Repealing the Aetnacare Subsidy, find reasons not to do so.
Republicans in both Houses that support the Wall and Border Controls, never fund anything (for many years now). Indeed, the often lift H1B caps.
"Managed Democracy"

And all this while they have a majority.

It's because they're the Controlled Opposition, which is why they like Issues like Abortion and Euthanasia so much. They don't have to do anything "Real" "Bread and Butter" to generate votes with the base.
