What would happen if Trump issued an executive order to stop all Western Union remittances to Mexico from the US?

Hey, Dennis Miller from SNL is openly pro-Trump:

That means he'll never be allowed to work again in the media, so it's actually a very courageous stance.

while the personal attacks continue I see more and more people jumping into discussion on social media like facetwat and NOT holding back on their support for Trumps immigration policy


That's good. I hope the right side (heh) stays polite and well-reasoned about the facts of illegal immigration and the harm it does to the poorest US citizens.

The more people who state the obvious, the more likely that the the obvious will been seen.

But the current polarization we have with half the population being totally cool with a President that lies constantly, is major (dead) canary in the coal mine (so to speak).


The polarization issue would be fixed by:

1. stopping the export of US jobs to countries without labor or environmental jobs (tariffs can help with this)
2. stopping the import of illegal aliens who are brought here specifically to lower wages and benefits for poor US citizens

The left has become anti-labor, ironically. Long ago, they supported labor against capital. Now they have abandoned labor and concentrate only on non-issues like tranny bathrooms.

Remember: Trump is the symptom and not the cause.

Maybe we need a conservative Labor party to permanently reduce the Democratic party to insignificance.

having a suicide bomber every 24 hours


When is that going to start or have I missed something on the news ?


Actually, devoutly religious Muslims do murder random innocent civilians in the name of Islam somewhere in the world pretty much every day. They do it because Islam explicitly teaches hate for all non-Muslims. We should all tell the truth about this, or Islamic murders of random people will continue forever.

If you want a running tally of daily murders by Muslim for Islam, check this out:

2018.06.22 (Afghanistan)
The Taliban target a road construction crew, kidnapping dozens and killing four would-be rescuers.

While there is a scam involved in 401k's (your choices are usually limited to options that allow financial firms to skim billions, or that allow employers to charge those firms kickbacks) overall they are a good thing for anyone with the discipline to put the money in. Of course as soon as you leave any employer, you should roll over the entire thing into a self-directed IRA so that you can stop the bleeding by choosing equities that don't skim much, like index funds or plain old stocks.

As for Trump harming 401k's, that is so far detached from reality as to be comically blatant propaganda. Trump has been the absolute best thing ever for my 401k. Gained the equivalent of two years of my untaxed salary since he was elected. Even the declines this year are insignificant by comparison.

So my verdict is that TDS has infected Bloomberg as well, prompting them to try more fear-mongering. I don't think the public is buying it though. They know damn well that Trump has been the best thing to happen to the US economy in generations.

Anything short of eliminating the jobs isn't going to be a deterrent. Remind me when the raids on employers and executive perp walks are going to begin under such a tough on illegals president. Not doing the one thing that would be effective in getting illegals to leave is a very very strange omission.


I agree with Bob here. This is one of Trump's few failures (along with bowing to Saudi Arabia). The employers of illegals must go to jail if illegal immigration is to truly stop undercutting the wages of poor US citizens.

Why aren't they going to jail?

How is Fixing Healthcare not Trumpublicans biggest failure? They crowed on and on and on about repealing Obamacare, then they have power of the entire government, and can’t be bothered to even attempt to change Obamacare?


@Aphroman Tump and the Republicans did repeal Obamacare mandate. Starting in 2019, no one will be legally obligated to buy health insurance or face a fine, as it was under Obamacare.

I think that's a good thing.

Politicians from both parties have gotten away with letting down ordinary Americans for decades because millions of Americans are culturally wedded to their tribal political identities of Republican or Democrat, and can’t think outside the box.

Looked at this way, the election of Donald Trump made perfect sense to me. Sixty-three million voters — including African-Americans, Hispanics and Democrats — rejected status quo politics and voted for a strong, rank outsider to shake the establishment from their comfortable perches.

Would President Donald Trump’s supporters have preferred a decent, moral, well-behaved, well-informed populist? Sure, but in dire times, you take the populist who shows up because beggars can’t be choosers, etc.


I agree.

Very few Jews have survived extermination at the hands of Muslims.


Christians did slightly better, starting from a larger population, but were also subject to mass slaughter at the hands of Muslims, for example the Armenians in WWI, or the Egyptian Copts down the present day. Copts routinely get murdered by Islamic suicide bombers. And a zillion more cases, well documented at https://www.thereligionofpeace.com/attacks/attacks.aspx?Yr=Last30

Of course Muslims kill other Muslims as an astonishing rate as well, for being Shiite, or for attempting to leave the religion, or for not being dressed in a black cloth bag, etc. Muslims are the biggest victims of Islam.

Here's the quote:

During a press conference with President Donald Trump in Finland on Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he would allow special counsel Robert Mueller to interview Russians indicted for interfering in the 2016 presidential election if Russian law enforcement can access people connected to one man in particular: the London-based financier Bill Browder.

“Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over 1.5 billion dollars in Russia. They never paid any taxes, neither in Russia nor in the United States, and yet the money escaped the country and was transferred to the United States,” Putin said Monday. “They sent a huge amount of money, $400 million, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. That’s a personal case, it might have been legal, the contribution itself, but the way the money was earned was illegal…So we have a solid reason to believe that some intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions, so we have an interest in questioning them,” Putin added.

If you stop seeking out random, one-off stories about "immi-grates" on the Interwebs, stop reposting them, and stop using them as discussion points, your problem will go away.

What you water with attention grows in your mind.


This is certainly true about weak findings of "racism", such as being asked for ID at an apartment complex pool. That's a non-story.

But that guy in the OP climbed the freaking Statue of Liberty. That is a story no matter what.

If we got rid of a few million illegals, everyone would have a place to live.


And wages for the poorest US citizens would rise, like they did at the Little Debbie factory in Chicago after ICE deported most of the workers:

In 2015, under the Obama administration, ICE inspected the documentation of Labor Network’s employees at Cloverhill. In May 2017, the Trump administration sent letters to about 800 employees, saying they weren’t authorized to work in the United States, records examined by the Chicago Sun-Times show.

Those Hispanic employees didn’t return to work, leaving the bakery desperate to fill their jobs. So the company turned to another placement agency, Metro Staff Inc., and it provided Cloverhill with workers screened through the government’s “E-Verification” program. Most of those new employees are African American.

According to a former consultant to the bakery, MSI paid the black workers $14 an hour, versus the $10 an hour the Mexican workers were making through Labor Network.

An extra $4/hour may not seem like much to you, but it's huge when you're living in poverty.

Yes, the owner is brilliant.

Similar to Trump, he realized that all he has to do is publicly say something, anything, outside the ever-shrinking bounds of what our self-appointed guardians of political correctness have deemed kosher (lol). The result will be an explosion of free publicity.

Faisal Hussain, the man identified as the assailant in Sunday's deadly shooting rampage on Toronto's Danforth Avenue, had severe mental health problems, according to his family.

Ontario's police watchdog, the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), released Hussain's identity on Monday evening, hours after investigators say the 29-year-old Toronto resident opened fire on a number of Danforth Avenue restaurants in an attack that has left the city in shock.

Witnesses captured several chilling images and videos of the attack, which took place around 10 p.m. on Sunday and left a 10-year-old girl and 18-year-old Reese Fallon dead. More shooting victims remain in hospital, with some having undergone multiple life-saving surgeries, according to doctors.

Low caste Indians tend to convert to Christianity in fair percentages. Lots of incentive!


They also converted to Islam in large numbers historically, resulting in Pakistan and a large Muslim population still in India.

Apologists for Islam do have the point that there is no caste system in Islam. A Pakistani friend pointed out that that's only in theory though, and that the Arabs of Saudi Arabia and neighboring countries have nothing but contempt for darker-skinned Muslims.

WASHINGTON—Saying that their investigation indicated her involvement in election interference went deeper than previously believed, the FBI revealed Thursday that Russian agent Maria Butina traded sex in exchange for all 62,984,828 votes Donald Trump received for president in 2016. “Our inquiry into Ms. Butina recently lead us to documents showing that while acting as a Kremlin asset, she approached every single registered voter in the country and, ultimately, exchanged sexual favors for each of the nearly 63 million votes President Trump received,” said FBI spokesperson Fred Rawlings, adding that the investigation had also concluded that every single dollar Trump received from donors such as Robert Mercer, Sheldon Adelson, and Linda McMahon was given as compensation for sex with Butina. “Beginning in at least 2011, Ms. Butina successfully established back channels with a significant portion of the nation’s 235 million citizens of voting age, ultimately trading enough sex to win Mr. Trump the election. It was clearly a fairly sophisticated operation, as Ms. Butina used intelligence gathered about American voters to target people willing to exchange their vote for sex in specific, crucial swing areas such as the upper Midwest, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina as Election Day approached. Our conclusions are clear: Without Ms. Butina’s sexual favors, Mr. Trump doesn’t win the election.” FBI officials added that the investigation into Butina’s involvement concurred with the intelligence community’s earlier findings that Hillary Clinton’s campaign likely lost the 2016 election because it did not offer enough sex to voters.

Actually, it's all about jobs.

Everything else in politics just doesn't matter by comparison. Export the jobs to China and import illegals, then you get Trump.

If you want to get rid of Trump, stop screwing over working class Americans. Drop the tranny bathroom shit, drop the 24/7 accusations of racism/naziism/sexism, and do something that benefits labor.

Trump is doing all the right things for working people, and talking very loudly about it. Democrats need to be more like Trump that way.

It's unclear whether the flags were ordered by Trump's campaign or other businesses...


But a Trump Campaign official told Business Insider that all their merchandise is made in the US, and vendors who suggest otherwise are lying or violating protected trademark rights.


Brilliant advertising by the Chinese flag company though! They use TDS to propagate their company name all over the internet.

Bad research by NPR, which values hatred of Trump more than facts, and values illegals more than poor US citizens who have to compete with them.

What term do you suggest I use?


@indc How about "foreign invaders"? That would include, say, the Mughals, who devastated India.

To add a little balance, we should point out that these invaders tended to unify their subject countries by suppressing regional rivalries. And so India was unified by the British just like Ireland was. And then India split along religious lines just like Ireland once the British Empire was weakened.

I too dont like to use the term "white" it is too generic, but India was looted not just by british, It was also looted by dutch, french and portugese. What term do you suggest I use?


@indc I thought about it a little, and the correct thing is to look at the flag of the group that did it. That is what they use to explicitly identify themselves. OK, you've got several flags to blame, frequently Muslim groups that invaded India too.

India was not occupied in the name of "white people". It was occupied in the name of the British Empire, with soldiers flying that particular flag.

And to this day, hoisting that flag in an Irish neighborhood can start a deadly fight in Belfast.

islamic horde of refugees


The term "refugees" always cracks me up. They are mostly just young men looking for easy money and easy women in Northern Europe. They could get safety in Turkey, but they don't want to stay there and the Turks don't want them either.

I do suspect that the demand for such immigrants is driven largely by our own easy women who are disgusted that they get everything they demand from our own weak men -- including the mass import of violent foreign men to replace them.
