Somebody didn’t get the message
Russian collusion having boomeranged back on the Democrats as sleazy defamers, insanity and the Logan Act and obstruction of justice and misogyny all having bombed, it was back to the drawing board with racism, fueled by the president’s disputed vulgar reference to poor countries…. Trump’s lamentation that there were not more Norwegian immigrants was unserious, as that country has a much higher standard of living than the United States…. Democratic senator Dick Durbin fired the opening shot in this new round of the Second Civil War by claiming that the president referred to “sh**hole” countries, meaning Haiti, El Salvador, and some African countries. Trump denied he said it….The Democrats have retreated to the slightly higher ground of acknowledging that the president might have said “sh**house.” Though absurdly picayune, and squalid, the difference excuses the president from the charge of applying a rectal slur to nationalities and makes clear he was using a socioeconomic description of the societies of origin of many migrants and immigrants. This ludicrous distinction alone knocks out the main prop…that Trump is a racist. The charge is nonsense, and the campaign attempt to portray the president as hostile to anyone not of white pigmentation, or even to non-Anglo-Saxons, folded like a three-dollar suitcase long ago.

I must come to the defense of #Haiti. It’s a potentially beautiful and productive country. The problem is that it’s filled with shithole people.

Just as the most ardent Trump supporters were about to give up on him in despair—he restores a lot of love in us by saying blunt but truthful things that no other President in our lifetime would dare say! NO DACA! NO COMPROMISE—NO Sh**thole America! Hail Trump!

This is encouraging and refreshing, as it indicates Trump is more or less on the same page as us with regards to race and immigration…. The real issue is all of these shitty brown people who come to the country exclusively to parasite off of us.

The dream never dies, just the Dreamers
The fact is that DACA is a phony issue…. Trump and his Republicans are now the only champions of the endangered blue-collar American worker, and only about 10 percent of the 800,000 DACA group of migrants have graduated from university, joined the armed forces, or made any spontaneous attempt to naturalize themselves. It is essentially a fraudulent moral issue….
—Conrad, Lord Tubby, op. cit.
97 per cent of DACA beneficiaries are currently employed or enrolled in school.
36 percent of DACA beneficiaries 25 years and older have a bachelor’s degree or higher.
8 per cent of DACA beneficiaries over 25 have started their own business, compared to 3.1 per cent of American-born of all ages.
DACA beneficiaries will contribute $460.3 billion to the U.S. gross domestic product over the next decade.

Anarchy in the D.C.!
[C]ontingency plans should be made and implemented for laying off enough of the 96 percent of the residents of the District of Columbia who voted against Trump, while keeping the Defense Department and essential services going, to knock this last, Stone Age weapon of official shutdown from the Democrats’ hands. A great many Americans would rejoice if most of the government were shut down, permanently, and it would obviate discussion about the deficit, and deal with the public-service unions once and for all.
