    • Our immigration system is most-broken for the millions(!) of people who are BROUGHT IN “illegally,” to remain “illegal” so that they will be the Slaves of their employers.

      It is also broken for the MILLIONS MORE who enter under “non-immigrant visa” programs which cause them to be Indentured Servants.

      Both of these practices were outlawed by the 13th Amendment. But, here they are.

      These are not “people who climb fences looking for a better life.” These are human rights abuses that are purposely heaped upon them. I hope that what happened for black people in 1964 will one day happen for these people.

        Immigration is MOST broken for American citizens across the nation who are being replaced, on their own dime, and who are the only ones expected to follow the laws of the land. For whom the jobs are and have been disappearing for decades to those who work cheaper. The courts and prosecutors are more lenient, the medical arena doesn’t waste time/effort billing, and the public housing is available to those that the left now says should not only be able to vote – AS IF THEY WERE CITIZENS – but should be able to serve in government.

        American citizens do not want to be governed by the Replacement Population that they have been forced to support for 45 years. *Some* of your migrants have suffered, as you noted, because of the left’s obsession with drawing them here. But worse, American citizens have literally been the prey of the invading population in both their out-sized criminality and their massive abuse of public services intended for Americans.

        Sane Americans want America back.

        Thank you.

        Yes, Virginia, slavery is alive and well here in the U.S. The focus has changed from ‘who’ are the slaves to ‘how would you afford your tomatoes’ if it weren’t.

        And as the masses stay sated with all sorts of distractions, human beings are bought and sold.

        The euphemism ‘human trafficking’ also assists in the ignorance. Most people associate ‘traffic’ with just the traveling portion of these humans, as in they are paying coyotes to get them into the U.S. — and fail to realize that in order to even get that far, many of these people had to have come up with some ‘commodity’ that is valued at a price far above what any of these people ‘earn’ in one year.

        For the life of me, I do not understand how regular folks believe that these people just up and ‘find’ something of value in their life that they could cash in for $7000, and not make the connection that what they have that is of that value is their children, their ‘free’ labor, their indentured presence extorted by their new masters.

Just a reminder : any instance where public comments are harvested to facilitate/increase ‘engagement’ and are being politically deleted/shadowbanned would seem to eligible for being documented in that system.

      • “Spying” is a bald word which “has no synonyms,” saying exactly what it means with no patina of legitimacy (or, illegitimacy). Barr uses it on purpose.

        It’s an open question, now under CRIMINAL investigation, whether those were “counter-intelligence probes” at all, if and how and by whom they were “authorized,” and so if they are “lawful.” Plenty of people who have the power to make such decisions don’t think so.

        So, “what the f*ck.” (Wink! Pun intended …) “Sometimes ‘a short word of Germanic origin’ is the perfect word to use.”

Nor has any of the supportive things you’ve said and written about me.” I suggested that he knew ”better than anyone” the antics of some U.S. prosecutors. (I had had Robert Mueller as director of the FBI, which we caught installing illegal bugging devices in our home in New York and in many falsehoods; James Comey as deputy attorney-general, and Patrick Fitzgerald, now Comey’s counsel, as U.S. attorney in Chicago. They were all, as my distinguished caller on Monday has described Comey, “bad cops.”) We moved briefly on to generalities, greetings to wives, I thanked him for his call and again for the purpose of his call, and the conversation ended…”

      “I was convicted for attempted obstruction of injustice.”
      Eerily reminiscent of what has been going on for the last two to three years. Obviously, in US jurisprudence obstruction of justice is the fig-leaf of any failed prosecution, used by prosecutors and judges alike.

      • I submit that the American people knew exactly what they were doing when they elected a man who has qualifications and a life’s-course that is 100% different from that of every previous President: He is neither a career politician nor a retired Army General.

        He is an expert negotiator, as the Chinese are now finding out. He is a master of mass psychology and public relations, as the Democrats are still not figuring out. These are qualifications that no other President had, and we have been suffering under the ineptitude of those Presidents for dozens of years. (The last one with serious business experience was and still is Jimmy Carter.)

        The American people made a bold choice, a daring choice, but a very deliberate one. And, I submit, it’s paying off.

        I aver that Donald Trump is a harbinger of what is to come. Future Presidents will be more like him. The people who sat in their echo-chambers and believed that Hillary Clinton would “of course, win by a landslide” are shown to be clueless. And the fact that to this day they obsessively fight against Donald Trump proves this point. They had absolutely no idea what 61 million actual people wanted, and still they don’t. But the days when political control was “of course” in the hands of such people are finished.

        Unless their “virtual coup d’etat” turns into a bloody real one – and some people really will stop at nothing, but may they never succeed – I already know who will win the 2020 election. The contest is already won.

    I am starting to wonder if the REAL “Emperor with no clothes”, is the CCP, and the economy of China.

    They have always considered their strength is in numbers; having however many BILLION people they have; in war, they would use ‘human wave’ attacks to overwhelm their enemy, for instance.

    But, what Reagan showed in his ‘breaking’ of the USSR, and what PDJT is,showing in his confrontation with CCP holds, regardless of population #’s.

    A conmunist, centrally and rigidly controlled economy simply CAN NOT COMPETE with a capitalist democratic republic focused on personal liberty.

    However many Billion, vs. 350 million, and yet our market is bigger than any other country, or even EU, its not even close! And its BECAUSE of the personal liberties now under assault, that we have such a vibrant economy.

    So, “Emperor for life Xi, the ultimate emperor with no clothes”?

      Let us first relieve a complete falsehood the MSM and many in our own country are passing….well not exactly false, but hurting those in China’s pocket.

      Tariffs….

      A tariff may be described as a sales or consumption tax the consumer pays, but tariffs are also a discretionary and an optional tax.

      If you choose not to purchase Chinese goods and instead buy comparable goods made in other nations or the USA, then you do not pay the tariff.

      China loses the sale. This is why Beijing, which runs $350 billion to $400 billion in annual trade surpluses at our expense is howling loudest.

      Should Donald Trump impose that 25% tariff on all $500 billion in Chinese exports to the USA, it would cripple China’s economy. Factories seeking assured access to the U.S. market would flee in panic from the Middle Kingdom.

      Tariffs were the taxes that made America great. They were the taxes relied upon by the first and greatest of our early statesmen, before the coming of the globalists Woodrow Wilson and FDR.

      The Tariff Act of 1789 was enacted with the declared purpose, “the encouragement and protection of manufactures.” It was the second act passed by the first Congress led by Speaker James Madison. It was crafted by Alexander Hamilton and signed by President Washington.

      A tariff is a tax, but its purpose is not just to raise revenue but to make a nation economically independent of others, and to bring its citizens to rely upon each other rather than foreign entities.

      The principle involved in a tariff is the same as that used by U.S. colleges and universities that charge foreign students higher tuition than their American counterparts.

      The problem for President Trump?

      Once a nation is hooked on the cheap goods that are the narcotic free trade provides, it is rarely able to break free. The loss of its economic independence is followed by the loss of its political independence, the loss of its greatness and, ultimately, the loss of its national identity.

      Brexit was the strangled cry of a British people that had lost its independence and desperately wanted it back.

        Earlier this evening, I was explaining to Dear Wife; she was concerned about the technology export ban hurting US. If the Chinese state run company that makes, let’s say network routers, can not buy the US company chips they need, the demand for routers does not change. Companies in US and other companies make routers. Those companies will sell more.

        It gets even more interesting with my personal perspective. I am AMAZED how fast production of electronic components and manufacturing metal stock has moved out of China. It seems that in many cases, the not-China company owns the production equipment, and they just load the production equipment on a ship. A month later, it is up and running elsewhere.

          I have to add: yesterday I came across a China company promoting their LCD displays. When I looked at their US targeted website, they explicitly stated that “if you want Company XYZ part number xxx-xxxx, contact us at this email for a quote.” That part happens to be a part I use sold by a US company that contracts the CN company to manufacture the part for them.

          I will spare you other horror stories, like when I showed an Austin semiconductor manufacturer boards I bought on TauBao with their latest (unreleased) chips on it, and asked for specification sheets. The US company had the CN company build 100 “prototypes,” of the unreleased product, and the CN factory was selling boards out the back door.

          Anyone who contracts CN manufacture is incompetent, and destroying their own company. On one hand, I admire their entrepreneurial spirit, but at the same time, they are ruthless and evil.

    Americans are the luckiest people in the world, not only because of our material fortune, nor even because of our fundamental decency and good will. We are the luckiest because we can afford to be as dumb as a brick, fail to educate our children, remain blissfully ignorant of the dangers that have killed hundreds of millions of people in the last 50 years, indulge in all the newest drugs, the biggest quantities of alcohol, the widest range of cuisines and tastes, and the usual range of sensual self-indulgence…and we are still protected from doom. So far.

    The reason for our astonishing luck can be summarized in a few words. It’s the Constitution.
