Say It Ain’t So, Jean-Luc!

This story is just depressing. It’s really sad that Patrick Stewart wants to become and American citizen to America to disrupt it and hate… Why should he be let in with that attitude?

Why can’t he be a builder, not a breaker?

It’s so childish. It’s part of the liberal mentality.

A Big Lie

While out running errands on Saturday I popped into the barbershop. The barber keeps the TVs on Fox News. Not bad, so much better than CNN, but I’d have preferred the MLB Network or NHL Network. Fox can be annoying too.

I tried not to pay any attention but one story caught my attention. There was some rally for “Immigrant Rights” in Hollywood or featuring Hollywood celebrities.

The babbling actors and actresses kept pretending that Pres. Trump had simply banned foreigners and immigrants. Mass deportations and house-to-house searches were about to happen (applause and boos).

I wondered as I listened, why do they so grossly mischaracterize what Trump is doing? Do they not know what he is doing?

That’s a possibility considering the way the lamestream media misreports all things Trump. They probably also rely on their friends and other fellow libs in the hermetically-sealed Media-Entertainment Complex bubble. Actors and actresses are generally not too bright but often want to be thought highly of by appearing studious and thoughtful.

And there is the possibility that they know they are lying but do it anyway — to be popular and signal their virtue. And maybe they want to have anyone, from anywhere, be allowed to come to the United States whenever they wish. It would be nice if they just honestly admitted that, rather than accusing Trump of calumny.

It gets frustrating watching reporters, politicians, activist groups and celebrities try to dupe the public by conflating illegal aliens with standard immigrants — who are not threatened by Trump’s orders.

If only we had a group of people who would transmit the actual facts to the general public. That’s such a great idea. I wonder if I can copyright that????

Terrorists Buy iPhones Too

I was recently reading an article in the Wall Street Journal. It was one of those typical “Tech Execs Criticize Trump Travel Ban” pieces that’s all the rage for the sophisticates who are suddenly concerned about business these days.

I was struck by the segment on Apple’s Tim Cook. Cook is probably the second smartest guy to run Apple (after Steve Jobs). It quoted Cook characterizing the ban, or rather mischaracterizing as is the wont of critics and the press.

He lamented how this would affect Apple recruitment for talent and how it was just awful that we consigned so many people to doom. He especially worried about families unable to simply come to America.

I thought to myself — Cook is bound to know what the ban is specifically about so he’s purposefully mischaracterizing it as an all out ban against immigration in general.

It is sad that Cook deceptively implies that this small number of refugees contains many potential Apple employees. Unless Apple has gone into the home-made bomb business, mid-level hacking business or simple low-level mercenary business then the number of potential employees is limited within this group. There just aren’t a whole lot of software engineers or politically correct marketing boffins coming out of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Yemen, Somalia…

One of Cook’s problems is that he sees these immigrants in question mistakenly. He sees them as no different from the urbane, worldly, almost agnostic Middle Easterners he went to school with, has dinner with at swanky international hotels, meets with in Dubai, London, Paris, New York, speaks to at conferences like Davos and sees on boards of businesses everywhere.

Does he not know that most of these “refugees” and immigrants from the countries in question are young males of military age? They aren’t coming to the U.S. for midnight basketball or to work at Apple (or some other tech firm). Looking at how they behaved in Europe it would seem clear that they wish to not assimilate but rather create their own little rotten boroughs. I’m sure our Democrats are all for this since they’d make an alliance with these indigestible potatoes.

The number of cute and photogenic families is small and most now seem to have agents peddling their likenesses to the highest bidder.

One also has to wonder whether the openly homosexual Cook even understands what the more dedicated Islamists that he wants to import do to people such as he. People like him go nuclear instantly when a Christian opens their mouth to utter some meek platitude. What are they going to do in the face of a deep-believing hardcore Muslim that feels empowered to bend people to his will. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet, Mr. Cook.

Much of Cook’s lament seems to gloss over these prospective reality problems. He refuses to acknowledge that there could be a problem at all. Other than with the bigots in America, that is. They are the real problem in his eyes.

No, Cook, seems to see this all as a stumbling block to more Apple business. If everyone just had an iPhone and an iPad they could communicate so much better (no doubt terrorists would love to have some iPhones and iPads, the better to plot and plan).

Then there would be no problem at all as everyone holds hands in an Apple-ized version of the famous Coca-Cola commercial. (I can’t believe Apple hasn’t ‘rebooted’ this commercial for their own cynical, craven use!)

Trespassing

Liberals are funny on immigration, especially illegal immigration.

For instance, if someone just randomly walked into a liberal’s house, condo or luxury apartment and decided to make themselves at home, the liberal would call the police to remove/arrest the uninvited/self-invited guest.

Yet when that very scenario is transferred onto a national scale suddenly the liberal is all for trespassing.

But then, if anything about the liberal has become clear, it is the vastness of their hypocrisy and complete lack of self-awareness.

What Part of “Illegal” Do They Not Understand?

The whole to-do over Pres. Trump’s order to curtail immigration from seven countries, six of them in chaos and one (Iran) a hostile enemy, has brought the immigration debate to a head.

One can argue whether the Trump “ban” will be effective — I think it would be more effective targeting those who transited through or visited those countries since they are terrorist havens rather than simply being born there.

That’s what we are supposed to do, discuss these things.

Instead we are treated to yet another liberal spazz attack. Yeah, that’s what we are seeing, liberals seem to be permanently stuck with the maturity level of a junior high spazz.

Liberals aren’t interested in debate because they might lose. They aren’t interested in a discussion or a conversation because they simply want to tell you what to do. They do not want give and take, other than they give it and you bend over and take it.

So we get this meltdown at airports and claims of international “chaos.” We’re told that so many companies are against this because it prevents them from getting recruits for jobs.

Now tell me, how many of these companies, many of them high tech, are actually getting recruits from say, Somalia? Libya? Syria? Iran? Yemen? Sudan? Iraq? I’d wager that number would be close to zero.

Several of those countries don’t even have running water, much less a tech industry. So what’s the fuss?

We have actual politicians, people supposedly familiar with something called “The Law,” pretending that Trump’s executive order is somehow out of the norm.

There was a time, within my lifetime, when people immigrating to the United States had to have sponsors. During that time people had to apply to come over. Some people actually got rejected because they were deemed undesirable. And taking people from hostile countries was limited to individual, special cases like Refuseniks — people who loved America, not hated it.

And we’re getting the tearful tales of “refugees” being prevented from just moving to the United States at their convenience. As if anyone, anywhere can decide just to come to the U.S. if their country goes down the crapper, and there’s nothing we can do about it.

So, in the eyes of these politicians, activists and would-be immigrants, a country doesn’t have the right to police its borders? That is some kind of insane concept never-before seen anywhere before?

That’s what the libtards want you to believe. Do you get the feeling we are being lied to by these liberals and their media auxiliaries?

The fact is that there are a number of immigration limitation statutes on the books. The Trump administration enforcement and institution of restrictions is not unusual in the history of this country. It’s only the slackness of immigration law enforcement and national generosity (not mutually exclusive) of the last couple of decades which has created an atmosphere of “open borders.”

Which leads me to the bizarre world of “illegal” immigration. The argument has gotten to the point where those illegally in this country have supporters who insist that the people who point out that the illegals are illegal are somehow wrong.

That these illegals are special, the truly law-abiding, while those pointing out their illegalness are the ones that are in the wrong.

The supporters often baldly insist that the “illegals” have done nothing wrong, preferring the euphemism “undocumented.”

Hey, bank robbery is an “undocumented” withdrawal… right?

The supporters, often in the form of nonprofit, tax-exempt groups, constantly invoke “families,” as if involving one’s family in a crime mitigates that crime.

Then there is a whole legal apparatus twisting laws so that people who are not citizens are allowed access to the benefits of citizenry, yet without any of the obligations and responsibilities. It’s actually kind of a sweet deal now that you think about it.

Just an example — drivers licenses for illegal aliens. People actually rationalize this bit of sophistry. Illegals can go to a DMV and get a drivers license. DMV people will turn in regular wanted criminals but illegals, they coddle and try to sign them up for other goodies, like voting. The DMV, as an arm of a state or county government, is obligated to aid in law enforcement but in our upside down world they feel free to ignore that particular law. But they’ll nail you to the wall if you are behind on child support or student loans or parking tickets…

The left’s desperation has bred this upside-down world — the illegal becomes the legal; those wanting enforcement of the law are deemed as the unlawful. Their aggressive vindictiveness is the product of their arrogance mixed with the weakness of their argument. The weaker the argument the more angry and violent they become.

When laws can no longer be carried out in their letter, they are lost.

When people are this delusional, it becomes impossible to have a rational discussion with them. They are lost.

Samantha Bee Thinks Mexico Is Part of the U.S.

Mark this one down as further proof that our media culture is run by ignorant libtards.

TBS has been heavily promoting late night talk show host Samantha Bee as some kind of female pioneer and an inheritor of Jon Stewart’s crown as guide for low-information voters.

I caught some recent promos for Bee’s show (I’ve never seen it). They are filled with anti-Trump diatribe (much of it from before the election). In one of them she whines that Trump asks for unity and then she snarks about his hypocrisy while showing a map of the of the United States and Mexico separated by a border.

Apparently she thinks that Mexico is one of those 57 states that King Barry I and Barbra Streisand think make up America. It’s so heartening to know that such ignoramuses are the chief informers of our more-knowledgeable-than-thou youth.

No doubt she thought that was some kind of snarky put-down. She was probably pumping her fist as the bit went-down.

Bee is originally Canadian so she might actually think that everything south of the Canadian border is one big country, especially with the number of illegal Mexican “immigrants” making certain areas resemble Mexico (or a Latin American country).

Bee, like so many of the celebrities complaining about Trump, is a foreigner, and, like those foreign celebrities, eagerly sought out U.S. citizenship. Hmmmmmm, who’s the real hypocrite?

In addition, like most libtards living in their media bubble, she believes that snark and emotion win a debate not facts and reason.

Mr. TBS Network Executive, is this who you want representing your network? Someone whose “pointed,” “edgy,” “truth-to-power” jokes aren’t based on facts?

Now for a little fun. Here’s a video covering some of the best media meltdowns from the recent election. Visit the video’s webpage for more. How sweet it is!

Drain the Swamp

One of the most important things that President Trump can do to help America, return it to greatness and assure that it stays that way is to “drain the swamp.”

That is, Trump needs to take on what even Ronald Reagan (much less the Bushes) feared, the vast leftwing conspiracy — academia, bureaucracy, corporations, entertainment, media and NGOs.

I’m going to keep this one brief since I’ll be delving into this in depth.

Trump can aide his reelection (yes, it is never too early to start preparing) or the election of Mike Pence as his successor, with several moves.

Push voter ID. For some reason voter ID seems to depress Democratic turnout. Gosh, I wonder why.

Deport en masse illegal immigrants currently in the prison system or with records. Other illegal immigrants don’t have to be hunted down and corralled. Many will leave if they see simple enforcement of immigration laws. Give a small percentage of those who have behaved themselves a chance to return, legally. Eliminate benefits for those who are here illegally. Move against “sanctuary cities” at the federal funding level. I’m all for states rights but those do not encompass immigration policy. Such a move will impact Democrat voting levels.

And, most importantly, start shrinking the size of the federal Leviathan. Set a number, say 5 or 10% per year.

Many of those workers will leave the Washington area and most will concentrate in other liberal areas. Besides weakening the federal government and clipping its mischievousness, it might return Virginia to its red state status. It was the mushrooming of the government over the last two decades which turned once red Fairfax County into a blue monstrosity which overwhelms the rest of the state. Maryland and D.C. cannot be recovered.

On the larger scale, smaller federal employee numbers also drain the Democratic Party of financial resources and the ability to project party power and harass political opponents. So along with saving taxpayers money, freeing them from the government thumb, this is a win-win. There’s simply no downside to targeted shrinking of the federal government.
