The Trump Presidency

Recommended Posts

Hence the division within the party.  Conspiracy party thinks everything is a conspiracy when now trump says “Everything is fine!”  “We’re doing great!”  
  What are his followers to do when there is so much rich material on the internet that the Novel Coronavirus as it was originally called was developed in a military biological lab in Wuhan where the epidemic started.  Why is it novel? Because no one has ever seen anything like it before. This is quite the dilemma for the trumpsters.  Is everything just great like their leader says or is something more sinister happening.  Quite the kerfuffle.

"DarkandStormy, you used to be a conservative as recently as 6 years ago and even attended CPAC 10+ years ago.  Now you seem pretty progressive.  Why did you switch?"

 

Didn't know that. I was pretty similar, in college I was a McCain '08 guy (to my embarrassment) but was still inspired by Obama's election. After he got in the White House the vitriol, racism, and just plain overreaction to every center left obama policy (IT'S SOCIALIST!!!) coming from the Tea Party and GOP pushed me out of that camp by 2010. Celebrating 10 years voting D this year.

This is literally my path to the Democratic party as well.  The reaction to Obama's election by my friends, family, and the general public was... telling.  I couldn't unsee it and I haven't viewed the Republican party the same since.

Immigrant owners of Arizona Mexican restaurant subjected to hateful comments for supporting Trump. Let me try to understand. Aren't these the same people who constantly deride the Republican party for its alleged lack of diversity? You can't win!😵

 

 

 

I wonder if they would feel the same way if profiled and randomly pulled over, as a couple of my friends in Phoenix have had happen to them.  Or if ICE conducts a raid on their business to check for immigration status, as they are doing to restaurants in Chicago, etc.   Life comes at your fast when you put your 15 minutes in the hands of Trump.

In Phoenix, I would guess ICE checks are a regular thing.

How exactly should immigration laws be enforced, if not by ICE?

My friend's wife has been pulled over twice by Glendale police for being Mexican while driving an Escalade.   She was born and raised here several generations in now. 

 

And in terms of ICE, i have no problem with enforcement.  However, there have been many instances where they are going in without proper warrants or probably cause.

ICE is just engaging in "stop and frisk" on a national level.  It's based entirely on racial profiling.

very easily.

 

we have police for those who break laws. 

 

if anything, ice should be tasked with investigating and fining the sh*te out of businesses that hire illegals. 

 

as if anyone was really concerned about it.

I believe this would have the greatest effect.  No matter what ICE does, people are still going to find a way to get to where they can work and support themselves and their families.  If there isn't available employment, then there is far less reason to put oneself at risk coming over.

yeah heavily stepping up fine enforcement always been the cheapest and best solution to immigration control.

 

and to be fair, that goes across all previous administrations, but nobody ever does anything about it. 

 

but now we have trump, our illegal hiring, russian gangster consorter in change.

 

he will pimp building his walls that mexico will pay for with the huckleberries, but he certainly won't touch that obvious practical solution.

 

trump aside, the fact is, and again to be fair, nobody really even wants to do anything about it.

 

they want to be able to exploit the cheap labor.

He asks a good question!  We know cars don't drive themselves, so there must have been someone driving the cars in the "Cars" kids movie franchise, especially since they have doors!  So there must be little people that are inside them that we never see.  But, the real question is, "what's driving the little people?"

 

edit- what if the "Cars" universe is actually one where some technological mishap fused the human species to their machines?  What if its all fun kid's movie on the outside, but on the inside those cars are some H.R. Geiger nightmare of atrophied flesh and organs kept alive by petrol in an undying death?  Can we get a Special Investigative unit set up on that?

Considering some of the dumb stuff that this president has said, should I know the difference between satire and reality anymore?? Case in point...

Dangerous lies’: Experts slam Trump suggestion coronavirus patients ‘go to work’ and ‘get better’

 

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/03/dangerous-lies-experts-slam-trump-suggestion-coronavirus-patients-go-to-work-and-get-better/

 

“A lot of people will have this and it’s very mild. They’ll get better very rapidly,” Trump told Fox‘s Sean Hannity. “They don’t even see a doctor, they don’t even call a doctor. You never hear about those people.”

I wonder how much it will spread just from Trump supporters thinking this is no big deal because he said so.  South Korea had a huge spread from that religious cult, but we have a cult of a different type following the advice of an idiot.

So much going on that I missed this news Friday: Mick Mulvaney Out, Mark Meadows In As White House Chief Of Staff

 

https://wcpn.ideastream.org/news/mick-mulvaney-out-mark-meadows-in-as-white-house-chief-of-staff

 

“For the fourth time in three years, President Trump has a new chief of staff.”
...

“Mulvaney lasted a little more than a year in the job. He became tangled in the Ukraine scandal that led to Trump's impeachment when he put a temporary hold on military and other aid for Ukraine earlier this year at Trump's request.”

I thought he already did, but I was thinking of his pending retirement. Looking that up led me to this gem:

 

”A person familiar with the discussions said Meadows was offered the job Thursday and that Mulvaney, who has been traveling for most of the week, did not find out until Friday. Another source said that Mulvaney was given a heads-up before the president’s tweet.”

Words Trump spoke at his Coronavirus Press Event

 

“But I think, importantly, anybody, right now and yesterday, that needs a test gets a test. They’re there, they have the tests, and the tests are beautiful. Anybody that needs a test gets a test,”

 

“If there’s a doctor that wants a test, if there’s somebody coming off a ship like the big monster ship that’s out there right now, which, you know, again, that’s a big decision. Do I want to bring all those people off? People would like me to do that. I don’t like the idea of doing that...I like the numbers being where they are. I don’t need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn’t our fault,” 

 

“The tests are all perfect, like the letter was perfect. The transcription was perfect. This is not as perfect as that, but pretty good.”

 

“I like this stuff. You know my uncle was a great person. He was at MIT. He taught at MIT for, I think, like, a record number of years. He was a great supergenius, Dr. John Trump.”

 

“Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”

 

“I understand that whole world. I love that world. I really do. I love that world, and you know what? The whole world is relying on us.”

Quote

President Donald Trump’s campaign manager is quietly channeling money to Eric Trump’s wife, Lara Trump, and Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, The New York Times reported Monday.

 

The payments are hidden from public view because they’re made through campaign manager Brad Parscale’s private company, Parscale Strategy, based in San Antonio, sources told the Times. Typically, such payments would be part of public filings required by the Federal Election Commission so that donors can find out how their contributions are being used — in this case, to pay members of the president’s family.

 

The family benefits are linked to a network of politically connected private companies — operating with the support and help of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner — that have charged roughly $75 million since 2017 to the Trump reelection campaign, the Republican National Committee and other Republican clients, according to the Times.

We've already pulled the tax cut lever, at a time when we didn't need to, and now Trump wants to cut more to offset the economic damage brought on by the coronavirus, something we can surely afford with our $1 trillion projected deficit.

 

Without a guaranteed paid sick leave, this is worthless.  Giving people a few extra bucks won't cause them to stay at home if they're sick - they will still work because they need the paycheck.
