The people who brought you distorted and deceptive news are trying to take the moral high ground by curtailing their business dealings with the billionaire bloviator, Donald Trump …
Trump has usually responded to criticism by claiming others are not smart like him, rich like him, or are simply despicable losers. So I can’t wait for The Donald’s Response …
And, I don’t think it is …”You’re Fired!”
What Trump actually said …
During his Presidential Announcement, the Billionaire Bloviator said:
When do we beat Mexico at the border? They are laughing at us; at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend. Believe me. But they are killing us economically. The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems. [applause] Thank you. It's true. And these are the best and the finest.
When Mexico sends its people; they are not sending their best. They are not sending you. They are not sending you. They are sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. (sic) They are bringing drugs, they are bringing crime, their rapists; and some, I assume, are good people. But I speak to border guards, and they tell us what we are getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense.
They are sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It's coming from all over South and Latin America, and it's coming probably … probably from the Middle East.
But we don't know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence. We don't know what's happening. And it has got to stop. And, it’s got to stop fast. <Source>
But the sad fact is that Trump is right …
Mexico is outsourcing its poverty, illiteracy, disease, crime, and low-skilled employees. Illegal aliens who, for the most part, do not want to assimilate into America – to become Americans. They appear to want to recreate the hellhole they just left; complete with their own allegiance to their country, their flag, their language, their dress, their food, their customs, and their holidays – all with the access to our social safety nets and the benefits accruing to citizens and legal immigrants and workers. They are exporting millions of dollars back to Mexico each day, so why would the Mexican government want to partner to stop the flow of illegals.
This is not to say that all illegals fleeing from an oppressive regime, massive corruption, massive crime, and lack of resources are bad; especially those trying to do right by their families. But the sad truth, we cannot assimilate them into our culture without radical transformation of our finances, our medicine, our criminal justice system, and our very culture itself. These are people who go along to get along, as opposed to hard chargers and self-motivated entrepreneurs. They are a worker class.
Make no bones about it. Illegal aliens are criminals – not only from their first border incursion, but from the document theft, forgery, and massive identity theft that has corrupted our tax and Social Security systems, and the perjury that goes with false attestations.
And, since the border is not secure, we find much more than Mexicans entering our country and violating sovereignty. Including terrorists and violent foreign gang members in ever increasing numbers.
What Trump did not say …
Trump did not say that the illegals are welcomed with open arms by the progressive socialist democrats who see these unfortunate people as future democrats, union members, and church goers.
Trump did not say that the illegals are welcomed with open arms by the GOP who see these unfortunate people as a source of cheap labor and easy financial rake-offs when they engage in unbanked financial transactions at exorbitant rates.
Bottom line …
We need to close our borders.We need to limit immigration until we get a true headcount and perform financial, logistical, medical, criminal, and social impact studies.We need comprehensive immigration reform. Not a path to citizenship, but a way forward that will ensure that the generational issues will be solved in a single generation.
We need to treat alien gang members as domestic terrorists. And, we need to rework the unionized welfare and criminal justice bureaucracy that serves this disadvantaged community.
As for Trump, he is just another billionaire bloviator who believes his own superior brand of bullshit. There was no way he could have continued at NBC/Universal while running for President; in essence, he fired the network the day he made the decision to file his formal candidacy papers. For NBC/Universal, attempting to look like they were firing Trump was a cheap shot.
But ... to be fair, give The Donald a break as he misspoke -- as do many politicians under the adrenaline rush of a major campaign event. That the progressive socialist democrats at NBC/Universal will not cut him a break, like they did the lying progressive talking-head Brian Williams, is not fair.
There is little doubt in my mind that Trump is a self-proclaimed genius that is so stupid as to believe that there is no difference between famous and infamous. Let this clown stick with providing entertainment and leave the serious work of crafting and executing public policies, both foreign and domestic, to serious men with a love of country.
