America Enters Its First “Shithole Countries” News Cycle

[Warning:  This is the first PG-13 version of Today’s Campaign Update.  Today’s Campaign Update will return to its traditional PG format tomorrow.]

  • Me and Rush, tight as ticks. – I caught Rush Limbaugh’s opening segment the last two days, and I’m beginning to think he’s reading my Daily Campaign Updates during his daily show prep. If you listen to the first 8 minutes of his show the last two days and compare that to what I wrote, there’s a lot of not just the same points, but a lot of exact wording being used.  I’m cool with that, Rush.  But give me a shout out sometime, ok?  Thanks.
  • You just cannot make this stuff up. – USA Today reported on Thursday that many radical “women’s” advocates are ditching their pink pussyhats.  Why?  Oh, you’ll never guess why.  Go ahead, guess.  Nope, try again.  Nope.  Ok, here’s the answer:  They’re ditching their pussy hats because, and I’m quoting here, “the pink pussyhat excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender non-binary people who don’t have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink.”  There are a million things – literally – I could say about this, but in the interest of decorum, I will just leave it at that.
  • Terminally un-funny comic and notorious drunk Chelsea Handler demonstrated yet again what a perfect spokeswoman she is for the progressive left on Wednesday by accusing – in the most graphic language possible – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of being a closeted homosexual on her Twitter account.  Senator Graham, a lifelong bachelor, has steadfastly denied this claim repeatedly during his political career.  Remember when  progressives were the tolerant ones?  Or at least put up the pretense of being so?  Yeah, good times…
  • Ok, so, we are well in to the “shithole countries” news cycle, in which everyone in the fake news media goes berserk over a comment made in what was supposed to be a closed meeting by the President of the United States.  I won’t defend that language, which is completely inappropriate for any U.S. president to use about other countries.  Nor will I defend the President’s timing, which steps all over his message on immigration and destroyed the narrative of what was otherwise an extremely positive day for his immigration policies.  But I will defend the sentiment:  We simply need a smarter immigration policy for our country.
  • We should be – as our country has done throughout most of its history – focused on bringing in people who can actually contribute to our society in meaningful ways, and who wish to assimilate into our society.  We have spent the last 50 years under an immigration policy designed to favor immigrants who have no interest in assimilating into U.S. society, simply because such immigrants are more likely to vote Democrat.  The Democrat Party wants a Balkanized country, a divided America, because a divided country favors its electoral politics.  Simple as that.
  • But even Democrats weren’t always as interested in dividing America along racial and ethnic lines.  In pushing his 1965 immigration bill, Ted Kennedy said , “[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia.”  That’s 52 years ago, of course, but YouTube is full of videos of Democrat luminaries like Chuck Schumer, the Pantsuit Princess and Harry Reid expounding on the need to protect our borders, send “illegal aliens” (yes, as recently as 9 years ago, Schumer used that term in the well of the Senate) back to their home countries, and promote policies that encourage new legal immigrants to learn English and assimilate into American society.  Yeah, good times…good times…
  • All the “shithole countries” talk aside, all of you Trump supporters who spend too much time listening to professional rabble rousers like Ann Coulter and #nevertrumpists who were warning you that the President was about to sell the country out by agreeing to amnesty with no border protections should have been breathing sighs of relief at day’s end on Thursday.  President Trump’s frustrated remark came in a meeting with several pro-amnesty senators who believed they had just the deal for him:  a deal that would provide the DREAMers a 10-15 year path to citizenship, modify (but not eliminate) chain migration, provide a down payment on border security measures without full funding, and modify (but not eliminate) the immigration lottery system, the continuation of which was what led to Mr. Trump becoming so irritated.
  • That was a classic Washington DC compromise deal, a conglomeration of counterproductive half-measures in which everyone involved would get part, but not all of what they wanted, and could have all declared “victory”.  President Trump turned it down flat, because it was a lousy deal for the country, and because it would have violated his campaign promises on immigration.  Make no mistake:  there is a deal to be made here, and it is obvious.  That deal is that the DREAMers get immediate legal status with a path to citizenship; the border wall/enhanced security gets fully funded; chain migration ends; and the immigration lottery goes away over time.  That’s the deal the President will accept, and it is completely consistent with his campaign promises.
  • Honestly, folks, how many of those campaign promises must this man keep to you before you all start showing a little faith in him?

Just another day in “shithole countries” America.

That is all.

    I’ve been reading your site for a few weeks now (after discovering Whatfinger News). Please….keep it up! Your ability to sum up the news of the day with conservative sarcasm is sorely needed in the ocean of crap that is the daily news cycle. Thank you for what you do. More Americans need to read your site. I’m forwarding to friends and family!

    ” I won’t defend that language, which is completely inappropriate for any U.S. president to use about other countries.”

    I’m not sure President Trump said it. It is actually and literally heresay and it sounds nothing like the man, who doesn’t seem to swear. Be interested to find out if he says he didn’t or not, given that’s now “big” news.

    “But I will defend the sentiment: We simply need a smarter immigration policy for our country.”

    Absolutely. I have some opinions, but frankly anything is smarter than right now. Happy to meet anyone who can get us some movement in the right direction.

    “That was a classic Washington DC compromise deal, a conglomeration of counterproductive half-measures in which everyone involved would get part, but not all of what they wanted, and could have all declared “victory”.”

    That wasn’t a compromise, but the kind of thing bureaucrats do to make a problem for themselves go away. It solve nothing of real world problems, but does look like they “tried”. It’s the same idea where globalists bureaucrats split Berlin and Korea in two, rather than fight and/or otherwise finish the cold war.

    Luckily, there’s a new sheriff in town who made it clear he wants a big beautiful wall and that everyone is going to have try a whole lot harder than they have. No more half measures.

    “That deal is that the DREAMers get immediate legal status with a path to citizenship; the border wall/enhanced security gets fully funded; chain migration ends; and the immigration lottery goes away over time. That’s the deal the President will accept, and it is completely consistent with his campaign promises.”

    As someone who voted for Trump in the primaries and national election, attended 2 rallies, and is actually farther to the right on immigration than he is, this the deal I want, too. Ann Coulter+immigration hardliners and the #NeverTrumpers are just hysterical and unhelpful. Give the Dems and the libs their DACA group, who is already here and everybody is imagining they’re protecting 10 year olds, rather than 20-30 year olds. Let them virtue signal, while we get everything that’s real and important.
