Donald Trump Just Keeps on Winning for America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, well, he IS the Boss. – Bruce Springsteen says he doesn’t “see anyone out there at the moment… the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump.” For some reason, the UK Daily Mail thought it was important for us all to know that, so there you go.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed during the G-20 Summit over the weekend to a 90-day pause in the ongoing trade war between the two nations. While leftists in and out of our fake news media are poo-pooing the deal as just a return to the status quo prior to President Trump’s implementation of new tariffs, that is not the case at all.

The U.S. side of the deal apparently consists of agreeing to not increase U.S. tariffs on hundreds of billions of Chinese goods for the 90-day period, as Trump had threatened to do on January 1. In return, China agrees to rescind its tariffs on imports of U.S. automobiles, roll back its 40% tariff rates on most U.S. goods to lower levels, agreed to purchase an as-yet unspecified amount of U.S. goods to reduce the trade deficit, and – perhaps most importantly – to “stiffen penalties on sales of the powerful opioid fentanyl into the U.S., a step the White House press secretary described as ‘a wonderful humanitarian gesture.'”

Leftists might not like it, but the markets obviously do: Dow futures are up bigly as I write this Update this morning.  #WINNING.

Speaking of winning… – City officials in Tijuana, Mexico acted to move the estimated 6,000 “migrants” out of the sports facility they had occupied for the last few weeks due to the horrid unsanitary conditions they had created there. In a move that will make it harder for the activists among the crowd to mount further assaults on the border crossings there, city officials moved the “migrants” to an abandoned concert venue more than 10 miles further away from the border.

Griff Jenkins at Fox News – and basically no one else in our fake news media – reported last Friday that fully 1/3rd of the “migrants” were being treated for health issues, including head lice, “tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox,” according to local health authorities. With the unsanitary conditions growing worse by the day, Mexican officials also feared an outbreak of Hepatitis could take place unless the crowd was moved.

In another related turn of events, newly-inaugurated Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), in one of his first acts in office, “signed an agreement with his counterparts from three Central American countries to establish a development plan to stem the flow of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.” This compact was entered into at the urging of the Trump Administration.

Here’s why this is important, even if the human misery among these poor people is hard to watch: The move 10 miles further from the border will no doubt encourage more of them to either return home or accept the generous offer of asylum the Mexican government has been offering them for more than a month now. This “caravan” once numbered more than 10,000, so many already have done so, as Mexican officials confirmed early last week.

The other key factor is that, as it becomes clear that the United States of America is not going to allow these “caravans” to just walk right into our country and sign up for welfare benefits, it will become increasingly difficult for the leftist activists forming and funding them to find people in Honduras and other Central American nations willing to participate. The new willingness of the Mexican government to cooperate with U.S. efforts to halt this tide is a crucial development in all of this.

You will never see anyone at CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post or any of the three dying broadcast networks admit this, but these latest developments demonstrate how extraordinarily effective the Trump Administration’s response to this “migrant caravan” issue has been.

It is such a joy to have a President who just goes to work every day and finds ways to get things done for the American people rather than cowering in fear at the prospect of getting a little bad press. To get to this point on this “caravan” issue, President Trump has had to overcome decades of horrible immigration policy decisions, the cacophony of inaccurate and outright fake reporting coming from the U.S. and international news media, ongoing resistance from some within his own Administration and a seemingly unending series of laughably unconstitutional decisions issued by an array of Obama-appointed federal judges.

Yet still he not only perseveres, but finds ways to prevail. That is #WINNING. Bigly.

 

Paris Burning Watch:

By the way, just so everyone understands, the reason why French Child President Emanuel Macron is raising that nation’s already confiscatory gasoline tax to even higher levels is not, as some have reported, an attempt to improve the government’s budget situation. What it really is is a fool’s effort to meet his country’s emissions reduction goals which France – like every nation on earth other than the United States of America – pledged to meet as a part of the Paris Climate Accords.

France’s emissions have actually increased since Macron committed his country to that socialist wealth redistribution scam, which is an embarrassment to him and his government. But hey, he’s not alone – not one single, solitary signatory country to the Paris Accords has met its pledged goals. Indeed, the country that has cut its emissions more than any nation on earth since that deal was signed is…wait for it…The United States of America.

Some of you probably tire of seeing me make this point, but it’s a key point to make:  This is just one more reason to be thrilled that Donald J. Trump won the 2016 presidential contest.  Because had the Pantsuit Princess prevailed that historic day, the streets of New York and Los Angeles would probably be burning along with those in Paris.

That is all.

It’s Come to This: Democrats Oppose a Question About Citizenship

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The Dow closed up 669 points on Monday because traders figured out that – guess what? – there’s not going to be a trade war after all.  Turns out that – for the 10,000th time, dammit – President Trump is not the raging idiot the fake news media portrays him to be, and just as importantly, the Chinese aren’t morons, either.  Both sides realize a trade war is not any good for anyone, and are busily engaged in getting to a renegotiated trade equation with which both nations can live.

As I and many others have continued to point out, President Trump is using the threat of these heavy tariffs as tools for leverage in negotiations.  If everyone can hold off having a nervous breakdown for a few more weeks, we will wake up one morning and find that our country has landed in a much more advantageous trading position with China, Japan and other nations.

Unbridled hubris in action. – Speaking to an audience in Japan, Barack Hussein Obama said he wants to “create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas.”  Think of the massive ego it takes to have doing that as your life’s vision.  Then think of the level of damage a million little Obamas could wreak on our society.  Ok, wait – don’t do that.  You’ll never sleep again.

Is Paul Ryan planning to resign?  After that Omnibus bill, would anybody really care? – Congressman Paul Amodei (R-NV) told reporters on Monday that rumors swirling around the nation’s capital have House Speaker Paul Ryan resigning the speaker’s job “in the next 30-60 days.”  While that wouldn’t come as a complete shock, everyone should take a “believe it when we see it” attitude towards a rumor being repeated by a back bench congressman who admits to having no inside information about the situation.  The rumor mill never stops running on Capitol Hill, and we’ve seen such rumors about Ryan before.

This is only controversial among Democrats who love those illegal voters. – Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced that the Census Bureau will be adding a new question to the 2020 census forms:  “Are you a U.S. citizen?”  Democrats and leftwing activists, of course, will be tossing hissy fits of rage about adding this simple and very useful question onto the form.

Right on cue, Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, told some fake reporter at CNN that “This is an arbitrary and untested decision that all but guarantees that the Census will not produce a full and accurate count of the population as the constitution requires.” The execrable California Attorney General Xavier Becerra accused Ross and the Administration of  trying to “hijack the 2020 census for political purposes.”

The reasons for adding this question back onto the census form are numerous:  1) to give a sovereign nation an accurate count of the number of actual citizens who reside within its newly-enforced borders; 2) to give a sovereign nation an accurate estimate of the real number of illegal aliens who reside within its borders; and 3) to form an accurate count of citizens in order to properly draw congressional districts.

As Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told Breitbart news:

“Right now, congressional districts are drawn up simply based on the number of warm bodies in each district. Not only are legal aliens counted, but illegal aliens are counted too. As a result, citizens in a district with lots of illegal aliens have more voting power than citizens in districts with few illegal aliens.

Think of it this way. There are about 710,000 people in each congressional district. But, if half of the district is made up of illegal aliens, then there are only 355,000 citizens in the district. The value of each citizen’s vote in such a district is twice as high.”

Of course, Democrats all over the country work very hard every election cycle to find ways to enable illegal non-citizens to vote, because they’ll pretty much always vote Democrat.  Democrats also know than an accurate count of the number of illegals currently in the country is going to be a very, very big number, much bigger than the “11 million” they’ve been tossing around by rote for more than a decade.  They know that revealing an accurate estimate of the magnitude of the illegal population will shock many citizens, providing added momentum to the Trump Administration’s ongoing efforts to enforce the border.

Never, never forget this key fact:  Democrats favor flooding the nation with illegal immigrants because they view those illegal immigrants as a future voter bloc.  Once you accept that simple reality, their seemingly irrational opposition to something as simple as a citizenship question on the census form makes perfect sense.

Just another day in Democrats undermining the very idea of America.

That is all.
