State of the Union Speech

Trump gave a great speech, in which he re-affirmed his campaign promises, not yet kept, to end the forever war and build the wall,

Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls, and gates, and guards.

Meanwhile working class Americans are left to pay the price for mass illegal immigration

  • reduced jobs
  • lower wages
  • overburdened schools
  • hospitals that are so crowded you can’t get in
  • increased crime
  • and a depleted social safety net

Smugglers use migrant children as human pawns to exploit our laws and gain access to our country.

These memes cheerfully lifted from Heartiste and from the reaction.

And what made this speech even greater is that the Democrats are planning to shoot themselves in the foot by having Stacey Abrams, dim witted fat middle aged black cat lady romance writer with fifty thousand dollars in unpaid taxes, a hundred and seventy thousand dollars in credit card debt, and no substantial assets, deliver the rebuttal. Stacey favors open borders so that our enemies who hate us can invade us, opposes gun rights so that the people coming over the open borders can kill us, opposes voter ID so that they can outvote us, favors late term abortions, and opposes religious liberty because old type Christians are Nazis who need to be punched, like the Covington boys.

Stacey Adams is the new face of the non white non male Democratic Party, which is going to run Kamala Harris for its 2020 candidate.

One of the delights of the State of the Union speech was watching evil ugly wicked witch Nancy Pelosi stare into the headlights of the oncoming truck. Too white for Democrats, too anti white for whites. When Trump renewed his promise, not yet kept, to end the forever war, she sneered, reasonably so because the senate had just voted near unanimously to overrule the president on the forever war. Then, as one of his measures to end the forever war, Trump listed moving the embassy to Jerusalem. She gasped, visibly shocked and distressed.

Moving the embassy means giving up on the project of doing to Muslims in the Middle East what Democrats have done to Christians in the West, and Trump’s statement makes sense from the point of view that the forever war is a crusade to impose progressivism on Muslims, and Trump is not going to impose progressivism on Muslims. He aims to cut a deal with the Taliban whereby they agree not to export terror, and he agrees to let them keep conservative Islam. Putting the embassy move into the context of ending the forever war puts ending the forever war into the context of progressivism losing the middle east to Islam, and to hell with the arc of history.

OK, we elected him to save America for Christians, not to save the Middle East for Muslims, but saving the Middle East for Muslims shows our enemy can bleed.

    He also masterfully pulled out magic negros and Latinos, to both showcase that he’s no racist and the pro-Americanness of his agenda.

    Great speech.

    Hail the God Emperor, or as he as known in the Middle East, the Kwisatz Haderach.

    Funny how people perceive the same thing in totally different ways.

    The speech I heard was “don’t worry the status quo is safe in my hands – we can have our bipartisan prison reform and maybe you might want to censor some anti-Semitism”

    • jim says:

      The status quo is open borders, no wall, the destruction of white America, and the forever war in the middle east.

      You think the status quo is “capitalism” – which was clearly not safe in the hands of Obama.

      • Mike says:

        I agree with everything you said Jim, except for the “oy vey anti-Semitism bad” part of the speech. That was completely forced and over the top. Now I’m not going to sperg out about it like some of the white nationalist/purple pillers on Twitter, but I’m also not dumb enough to believe that “all Jews are our friends”. The only jews that are our friends are traditional orthodox jews and Zionist jews, jews that keep to themselves and pursue the greatness of their people alone. The secular or non-zionist jews that make up most of modern Judaism are a cancer on Trump’s agenda and it is sad seeing him pandering to them.

      • Rule Britannia says:

        the capitalism of Sackler was clearly quite safe in Obummer’s tender hands

        let me guess, not true capitalism amirite?

        • jim says:

          Who is Sackler?

          Obama smashed capitalism, and another Democratic term would have made America into Venezuela.

          The Transpacific Partnership was Trotskyite socialism.

          • Anonymous 2 says:

            The Sackler family owns Purdue Pharmaceuticals, renown for pushing opiates on the lower white orders by various clever means (like “pain management” etc). They also fancy themselves philanthropists.

            • Carlylean Restorationist says:

              Yeah they’re now claiming they invented subutex.

              Jim’s intensely relaxed about that.

              • jim says:

                That they seek, and will probably obtain, a patent on a drug invented half a century ago by one of their competitors, and widely used for half a century, is not capitalism, but the socialist regulation that Trump complains about and is rolling back.

                the Gangsta Disciples are American capitalism selling us drugs. The Sackler family are American communism selling us drugs.

                I am not at all relaxed about this, having repeatedly condemned socialism in general, communism, American Communism, and the socialist American healthcare system in particular. Calling the Sackler family capitalism is like calling the Trans Pacific Partnership (a plot by Trotskyites to implement world wide socialism) capitalism.

                If Obama is for it, and Trump against it, calling it capitalism is lying to us about who our enemies are.

                  Priests can prevent the free market.

              Ah, not capitalism, since American medicine is socialist. There are lots of people selling recreational opiates, but the Sacklers get a government permit to do so, and the rest of us do not. The Gangsta Disciples providing “protection” services to people who sell heroin, now that is capitalism.

                strangely, American “socialist” medicine doesn’t much resemble European medicine, which everyone agrees is socialist

                it seems to be principally one titanic redistributive mechanism from middle class white men to the pharmaceutical behemoths and their enablers

                perhaps because the Neoliberal World Order (NWO) motto is something to the effect of: “capitalism for me but not for thee”

                • jim says:

                  You have not seen capitalist medicine.

                  The difference between American socialist medicine and European socialist medicine is insignificant.

                  If a country has capitalist medicine you see medical providers advertising their low prices. You see them using social media to promote their product on price and quality. You will see facebook pictures of doctors with happy customers telling you about their services.

                  If a country has capitalist medicine you see medical tourism, as people fly half way around the world to get treated in a capitalist hospital.

                  Countries with capitalist medicine get medical tourists from countries with socialist medicine.

                  You can tell capitalist medicine because you see providers of medical services trying to get your attention, and tell you of their price and quality.

                  Capitalist medicine has markets. Markets have prices. American medicine does not have prices.

                • Mike says:

                  I feel like I am being pedantic here, but people do fly from all over the world to get American medicine. The Mayo Clinic is considered close to the best medical center in the whole world. Hell, during the Cold War all the old-style communists knew their medicine sucked compared to the West’s and so they would either fly over here for treatment or they would smuggle Western medicine to the East for Communist Party members to get treated by.

                  Our medicine isn’t bad, it’s at the top of the world. How it is given out however, is done horribly, perhaps even worse than Europe’s method of doing so.

                • jim says:

                  Yes, lot of medical tourism from Canada to America, but I am not seeing medical tourism on a scale which causes providers to promote it. If America had capitalist medicine, hospitals would be promoting medical tourism the way hotels promote beaches.

                  I was not aware of Israeli medical tourism.

                  On looking it up, I find that Israel receives significant medical tourism, but Singapore is a much bigger destination for medical tourists than Israel.

                  In one of my other identities, I obtained treatment for my girlfriend, a long way from Israel. The doctor had us pose with him for a photo, and then I discovered that I, my girl, and the doctor, are on facebook as his satisfied medical tourists, taking advantage of his low, low prices, which in fact we are. Capitalism 101. That is how you know you are getting capitalist medicine.

                  An example of “capitalist medicine” would be what occurred in laser eye surgery and plastic surgery when insurance companies + govHealth mandated that these two classes of procedure be categorized as Elective. Prices dropped then stabilized based on competition + raw cost.

When Trump said that both sides were to blame for Charlottesville, that was a significant expenditure of his political capital in defense of the nationalist right, in defense of the pro white right, which expenditure is still costing him.

          That he made that expenditure shows where his heart lies.

          You are always telling us that our enemies are our friends, that our friends are our enemies, and that we disagree with each other on matters where we do not disagree.

      • The Cominator says:

        He was probably trying to nibble off a little of their votes around the margins.

        I for one despite all the problems blacks have don’t believe that 90+% of blacks vote Democrat. I could believe 70% but I think the 90+% is massive vote fraud. Black WOMEN all love Democrats but it seems every third black guy likes Trump.

        Most of the black vote is in poor democrat run shitholes and most of the poor blacks don’t show up, I imagine that any poor black who doesn’t show up and especially who doesn’t register is mysteriously registered as a Democrat and mysteriously ends up voting for them.

        • The Cominator says:

          Jim I’m curious as to your opinion on that issue?

        • jim says:

          Trump gets a better black and Hispanic vote than any Republican, because he is doing real good for the economy and the working class, which matters for black and Hispanic males, those few of them that actually work, but it still small stuff compared to the potential for getting the remaining “anti racist” white votes.

          The Dems are in disarray because they are a white Jewish party that is turning into the anti white race war party, with Israel on the enemies list like Rhodesia and South Africa.

          Which means that force of events has to turn the Republicans into what the Dems accuse it of being: The pro white race war party. Trump’s job is to ease the white vote into the race war party without them feeling bad about it.

          • The Cominator says:

            What I’m saying is don’t believe that 90% of the blacks in shithole ghettoes showup and vote Democrat. I don’t believe most of them showup at all.

            The Dems can roundup a few off the streets with promises of free liquor, junk food and newports but certainly can’t get the whole neighborhood to wait in line.

            I can believe 95% of black women when they do vote vote Democrats, I can’t believe 90+% of them showup. With black men I can believe neither. I say if they all voted the Democrats would get 70% of them at most.

            • jim says:

              The Democrats are correct that Trump gets the race war vote. The Democrats tell whites that if you vote to defend yourself, or take personal action to defend yourself as Zimmerman did, you are a bad person. Trump’s job is to make it possible for people to vote to defend themselves and act to defend themselves. Trump’s self interest is to make it psychologically possible for people to vote to defend themselves. Trump is mighty good and consciously and intentionally pursuing his self interest by showmanship and memeing.

  5. simplyconnected says:

    So you all think that all those inclusive and progressive comments were all talk but no action? A way to have his cake and eat it too?

    • jim says:

      Sure. What has Trump actually done to increase legal immigration?

      He has cracked down on the H1B racket, and his offer of a path to citizenship for H1Bs makes H1Bs less attractive to the employers.

      He also cracked down on false rape allegations in college, which have gone away, and a whole lot of diversity hires in engineering have mysteriously and inexplicably lost their jobs that under Obama they mysteriously and inexplicably obtained despite total inability to do any engineering.

      • simplyconnected says:

        He did suggest in private he prefers immigrants to come from Norway than shitholes. So that may show his revealed preference, as opposed to the stated preference we heard last night.

          They were hired due to extra legal state pressure, and fired due to a quiet relaxation in that extra legal state pressure. To report the news and to blame Trump for it would be to acknowledge the extra legal state pressure was causing payrolls to be padded with useless, disruptive, and dangerous people.

          Supposedly businesses are hiring whores and blacks because women are wonderful and blacks are magic. Noticing a sudden decline in wonderfulness and magic would be kind of hard to explain.

            You are probably right. But just for fun this is my attempt:
            “*Trump creates environment that discourages women and minorities to pursue STEM careers* In this disturbing expose, we uncover the climate of fear and intimidation that has forced many women and minorities to abandon their lucrative scientific and engineering jobs.”

    Drumpf is finished.

    He needed to do 10x what he promised in the campaign, and with this speech he has promised to do 1/10th.

    There is no coup. No coup is coming.

    It is more likely that Trump will placate his opponents enough to let him retire than that he will discover a need to coup.

    He was always businessman, not a revolutionist. We wanted to believe.

    • jim says:

      It took Augustus ten to twelve years to get the Roman government under control even after his coup.

      Yes, you are right that we wanted to believe. You are very wrong when you suggest that politics as normal is continuing and will continue.

      > It is more likely that Trump will placate his opponents

      Trumps opponents are implacable. If there is no coup, he will probably be imprisoned, and eventually executed. You predict politics as normal, but we have been seeing ever more abnormal politics, and if there is no coup, politics will continue to the ever more extraordinary and unprecedented.

      • Trump only has 2-6 years left and one of those years will be spent campaigning and far less power than Augustus ever had.

          • The Cominator says:

            Its very very unpredictable how it will go though.

            The Roman Republic really ended not with Julius Caesar but when Sulla marched on Rome (though with an unbelievable provocation of having been relieved of military command as a sitting Consul and winner of the grass crown which meant he was certainly competent to command, Marius was not a priest and did not suck but he was old jealous and possibly demented at that point).

            The “Republic” post Sulla up until the point Octavian won the final civil war was dominated by warlords with private armies (perhaps having more fear of Julius Caesar because he was actually descended from the kings of Rome). So far though nobody has marched on DC though somebody probably should. The more I think about it though the modern left is so feminine and Bioleninist that there is just no scenario where they can win a civil war.

      • For a coup, a good speech would be something that would trigger libs so much, they would start doing recklessly illegal things so that they can be locked up.

        That is the only way. He cannot start the illegal stuff first, not with conservatives, soldiers organized around a religion of the sacredness of the Constitution and the sacredness of democracy. If libs can be triggered into doing massive unconstitutional, anti-democratic (whatever that means), illegal stuff, behave like outright criminals, that is when he can use force. It has to be legal or at least look so.

        If I remember right, Julius Caesar was legally elected tribune, consul, supreme military commander (imperator), and then dictator for life somewhat questionably legally, and I suppose Augustus arranged something like that. The imperator title was only about commanding the military and had civil power. If I remember right Augustus’ invention was “princeps”, which just meant the first one to speak about an issue in the Senate. Then the rest of senators knew not to disagree and just nod along, but that was ensured by other means…

        Rome is a useful parallel because there was a similar piety among conservatives, soldiers about the constitution which wasn’t quite written but basically old traditional republican way of doing things. Julius couldn’t just strut in and coup, he had to reject the crown of the king multiple times, had to pretend he is playing by the legal rules…

        If there ever be a successful rightist coup in America, it will look very legal, very constitutional and very “democratic”.

        • jim says:

          You will notice that Dems are conspicuously crazier and more evil this year than last year. They are on autotrigger, as exemplified by the Covington boys. Their current platform is fourth trimester abortion, open borders, and a fat forty year old single childless broke black woman talking about how wonderfully counter-stereotypical she is.

          They are at the point where leftism has to go mailed fist and start murdering their opponents – but the president is their opponent. And in 2020, will be more crazy and more evil. During the state of the union speech everyone saw Pelosi looking as evil, hostile, and angry as she really is. If they just backed off and stopped drinking the Kool-Aid for a bit, demographics would give them everything, but they cannot help embracing madness and evil prematurely.

          Pretty soon they are going to try to grab the controls of the plane to fly it into the ground. Trump’s job is to look normal, reasonable, compromising, and sane, without, however normalizing the madness and evil of his enemies.

    SOTU was perfect charm offensive. The left is self-destructing, against wall with no credible reason. For murdering babies. In blackface. No credible proposal to make things better. Going gaga about global warming just as the country is blanketed by all time cold. 4 AM FBI raids on old man. No remotely rational person could find anything to like. His speech said nothing negative about them (except calling out their position on babies) and called them to participate which they will not do. So helping them continue to make themselves look stupid.

      The Democrats have held the House for about a month, and they are still in total disarray. TDS is their only Schelling point. They have no legislative agenda. They exude nothing but hatred and pettiness. Speaker Pelosi has no control over the Crazy Lady Caucus. Even the allied MSM can’t keep a lid on this disaster. It’s like nothing has changed for them since 2016 except they’re now occupying the floor and look all the more foolish for not knowing what to do with themselves.

      Meanwhile, God-Emperor Trump (PBUH) continues to project strength, confidence and magnanimity as he goes about his business unfazed by recent events because he’s faced opposition (from the GOP) since Day 1.

      It’s much worse than that. Here’s a mass mailing I got from the White House yesterday:
      [quote:]
      “More than 100 countries prohibit women from working in specific industries, which means 2.7 billion women are legally restricted from having the same choice of jobs as men,” Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump writes in The Wall Street Journal this week. In 18 countries, husbands can even legally prevent their wives from working and earning their own income, she adds.

      Expanding economic opportunity for women isn’t just the right thing to do—it’s in America’s national interest, as well. It has the potential to boost global economic output by $12 trillion by 2025. Unleashing widespread prosperity throughout the developing world can lead to a more stable, peaceful global order.

      This afternoon, President Donald J. Trump signed a memorandum to launch the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, or “W-GDP.” Spearheaded by Ivanka Trump, this first-of-its-kind, whole-of-government approach to women’s economic empowerment will aim to touch 50 million lives in developing countries.

      That potential $12 trillion payoff “represents far more than an economic boom—it represents millions of lives full of promise: mothers who could provide for their children, daughters who could be the first to graduate from high school, and young women who could start businesses and create jobs,” Ms. Trump writes.

      W-GDP stands on a three-pillar premise:

      1. Increase women’s global labor force participation and advancement in the workplace by providing them with quality education, training, and support

      2. Improve the access that female entrepreneurs and business owners have to financing and market opportunities that help grow their businesses

      3. Eliminate the legal, regulatory, and cultural barriers that prevent women from participating in their local economies

      “By investing in women around the world, we’re investing in families, we’re investing in prosperity, and we’re investing in peace,” President Trump said.

      [Links which appear to be personalized per recipient for tracking: “How W-GDP aims to reach 50 million women in the developing world by 2025” and “Watch: Ivanka Trump previews the promise of W-GDP”, “Video of the day: SOTU in 62 seconds”]

      President Trump laid out a bold vision for American greatness in his second State of the Union address on Tuesday night. In case you missed the speech—or just want to relive a few of the highlights—we’ve compiled some of the best lines of the night.

      [/endquote]

      So he’s promoting education of women which will predictably reduce the White fertility rate, and promoting further mandates of economic preferences for women which will destroy the remnants of the American family, increase discrimination against men and remove the last vestiges of our social and economic power. He’s pushing this throughout the world, and promising to “eliminate” any “cultural barriers” anywhere to this genocidal policy.

    We’re complaining that they’re stealing our tech? Maybe we should stop making everything there then.

    The only reason China opened their borders is because Neo-Liberals forced them through economic and political pressures. When we pull back from the global stage, so will they. It’s a win-win.

    The same goes for Iran. Attacking Iran, as anything more than a rhetorical device, is idiotic. Conservative Islam should be Reactionary best bud. When Christian culture/civilization stops being so completely degenerate, they will have no reason to want to blow up our buses. They stay there, we stay here.

        While that’s true, it’s also completely tautological.

        Economics is not the highest good, so it does not automatically follow that because something is the best for economics it’s the best period.

        – Not censoring rap music has been great for economics.
        – Importing brown labor is great economics.
        – Producing a culture of brain dead consumerism is great for economics.
        – Advancing international trade is great for economics.

        But it’s not carefully thought out if you care more about protecting Western culture from Orientalism than you do about the nominal rate of GDP growth.

        • The Cominator says:

          “– Importing brown labor is great economics.”

          Not really, importing brown labor is a disguised form of importing slaves and indentured servants. That is perhaps a short term boost for the economy but a long term drag on it. Also it creates all sorts of negative externalities.

          Unlike most NRxers I argue against long term use of slavery (at least in the economy, left wing young women should of course in the event of war be put in a legal condition very close to slavery but only allowed to be concubines and domestic servants.)

          Observing YouTube music videos, it is clear that which videos get top billing is not the free market but political censorship by our enemies.

          Most music videos are about the mating dance. People vastly prefer to watch the authentic mating dance, yet all available sources of music videos promote the politically correct mating dance. That is not good for economics.

          When you blame capitalism for the actions of our enemies, you are, like the Troofers, excusing people who hate us and intend to destroy us. Trooferism is all about pointing the finger in any direction other than Mueller and the FBI, and anticapitalism is all about pointing the finger in any direction other than the priesthood.

          The problem with rap videos is not that they are unholy, but that they extremely holy. The problem is not capital, but priesthood.

                  We can be certain that music videos where the male characters dance the male role (performance and conquest) and women dance the female role (choosing and surrender) would outsell today’s androgynous rock videos and yet we don’t see “rooms full of wealthy libertarian capitalists” selling stuff that would certainly sell better, and did sell better back when it was permitted.

                  If you look at a the background music of a game that is not too worried about political correctness, for example the original Massively Multiplayer Warcraft, the background music is classical. (They had the crusaders as good guys, and the trolls as south african negroes. This suggests to me that classical music would sell pretty well, if not for the political program of erasing the western civilization and the things the white race has created.

                  The guys pushing the videos you complain about as pushing propaganda with total indifference to whether it is what their customers want or whether it is profitable or not.

                  Feminist Star Wars did not sell. Feminist James Bond did not sell. Feminist Indiana Jones did not sell. And feminist music videos did not sell.

                  Obviously they are. Disney pissed away their star wars franchise, which they paid four billion for, and every music video is censored for political correctness in ways that make it boring, unpleasant, and frequently disturbing for both men and women.

                  And if you trace what went wrong with Star Wars in terms of who did what, the people who pissed away their Star Wars Franchise were fat middle aged childless single cat ladies with hundreds of thousands of dollars in college debt and credit card debt who were threatening to give the board the Kavanaugh treatment.

                  > They’re doing it because they hope to capture a larger market.

                  It has been known for a very long time and repeatedly demonstrated that feminist movies and feminist dance videos do not sell, as for example the destruction of the Star Wars Franchise and the James Bond franchise. And yet we keep getting feminist movies

                  Soros is clearly doing a great deal of very damaging stuff, but is he calling the shots? Clearly he funded and organized the overthrow of the Ukrainian government, but the Nuland phone call, intercepted by the KGB, shows Victoria Nuland in charge, not Soros.

                  Soros is funded by the US taxpayer, and it looks like the permanent government is calling the shots, not Soros – that is what we saw happen in the Ukraine. The US government launders money to be used through evil purposes through Soros, but, at least in the Ukraine, the US government called the shots, and Soros was just an evil minion.

                  He who pays the piper, calls the tune, and the US government is paying Soros. The Soros Modus Operandi is to buy up worthless debt, that then rises in value in a bailout courtesy of the US taxpayer. And in the Ukraine, the KGB wiretapped Victoria Nuland calling the tune.

                  Instead of telling us to outgroup each other, and that the reactionary canon is leftism, try presenting actual arguments for the Marxist theory of history, and actual arguments that the reactionary canon is contrary to Gnon.

                  You tell us you are not a Marxist, because of differences from Marxism that no one except Marxists are likely to care about, or even comprehend. Supposing that to be true, it is irrelevant to the question of whether those aspects of Marxism that you do agree with are true or false, good or evil and similar questions about the reactionary canon.

        > “Islam as concieved of by Sunni (not Iran) Muslims is to be one state under one Caliph with Shariah law.”

        China seems to make pretty good with the Muslim world by merely not invading them for no reason, and by not being total degenerates.

        Sure, we’ll have arguments, but the Caliph and the King should be able to find a functional peace. Once the Caliph is (rightfully) in charge of his race, it’s unlikely he’ll want to go to war with us and risk losing all of his treasure, wives, and land.

          If we were doing it the Chinese way, would detain any Muslim males in the US that looked excessively Islamic, marry their women off to Christian men, and bleach them by implanting their women with high quality white eggs.

      Trump is right. You are wrong.

      Libertarian economics is wrong, in that trade has to be conducted under the aegis of the sovereign, thus trade between two polities requires agreement of the sovereigns, and sometimes, hard to get agreement, making trade war necessary.

      But the objective of war must always be an acceptable peace.

    Off topic, but Jim, what’s your take on the Gilets Jaunes? They don’t seem nearly as racist-fascist-Hitler-evil-ultra-right-wing-populist-nazi as one would expect, given the Muslim invasion. Is it that the state permits protests on issues on which it is acceptable to disagree, like fuel prices, while dissent from real leftist pieties is still suppressed as strongly as ever?

    trump will declare one to set it’s own precedent. very little to do with the wall.

    • Frederick Algernon says:

      Prescient. The bill will be signed and the SoE will be declared, according to Reuters.

      “Trump to sign border bill, declare emergency seeking wall funds” – http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-shutdown/trump-to-sign-border-bill-declare-emergency-seeking-wall-funds-idUSKCN1Q30KU

      • jim says:

        Media of the permanent government are unreliable, predicting what they want to happen in an effort to make it happen. Wait till Wednesday, before drawing any conclusions about what is happening, and what has happened.

        The bill contains a poison pill allowing local municipalities to hold the border open in their area, which is to say, no wall for California.

        This would not necessarily be fatal. It might well be fatal if the exception were to prove permanent, but would be harmless if it only effects the wall funded by the bill, and not wall funded by the state of emergency.

        The bill provides amnesty for anyone who kidnaps a minor and drags her over the border: https://www.conservativereview.com/news/5-insane-provisions-amnesty-omnibus-bill/

        Which is, on the face of it, really bad. But I still say, don’t draw any conclusions till Wednesday.

        • Neurotoxin says:

          I’ve looked through some of the bill and from what I’ve seen, it’s not as bad as many think.

          Here’s the text. It’s more than 1,000 pages, pdf file:
          https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SYQ-X1tQhWe4uPUi1odmN-IiMAliJBvs/view?usp=sharing

          The notorious “sponsor” provision is this:

          SEC. 224. (a) None of the funds provided by this Act… [may be used to deport] a sponsor, potential sponsor, or member of a household of a sponsor or potential sponsor of an unaccompanied alien child… based on information shared by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

          I think that last part is key. It seems to just mean that if a person shows up in an HHS database of people with mad cow disease or whatever, and ICE gets their hands on that database, they can’t deport the person based solely on that info.

        • Neurotoxin says:

          The no-wall areas:

          SEC. 231. None of the funds made available by this Act or prior Acts are available for the construction of pedestrian fencing [in a list of “national parks” and whatnot near/on the border].

          First, note that “None of the funds made available by this Act or prior Acts are available for the construction.” That doesn’t say anything about funds allocated by an Emergency declaration by the President. And he just pulled that trigger today. (Sweet.)

          Second, I checked the size and location of these areas using online maps, to get at their actual/potential importance to invaders. To an extent, enforcement manpower can be substituted for a wall, of course. So it depends on the length of border that’s left un-walled by this part. What I found is basically that it only amounts to a few miles.

          There’s a significant amount of stuff I haven’t checked, but the parts I have checked are not a disaster.

  15. I admire your capacity to watch these things and discuss them. I could never bring myself to watch any political speech at all, not even Hitler’s. The most I can stomach is soundbites. To pay attention to creatures like Pelosi, and what she said or didn’t say, or though or didn’t think… Man, if the day had 48 hours I still wouldn’t make time for that.

    It is a necessary job though, and I am glad to see you are performing it with so much gusto.

    • Carlylean Restorationist says:

      We shall see. Politicians say a lot of things. Once it’s apparent that no vehicles or pedestrians can enter the country except through the official checkpoints, then we can conclude there’s a border barrier of some kind.
      Until then, it’s all political theatre.

          Making peace with North Korea, over the vehement opposition of the permanent government is a warmup for peace with the Taliban. Peace with the Taliban, on the basis that they do not export terror, and we do not export progressivism, is going to be hugely popular, and will take the mandate of heaven away from the progressive empire.

              They cannot quite fake believing that the problem with black speech is that blacks just have lesser capability for speech than whites.

              But the best giveaway is not blacks, or Jews, or whatever, but women. They can loudly announce they hate Jews with the best of them. They may loudly announce they hate women. But they cannot doubt that women are wonderful. They might accuse women of being gold diggers, when the problem is that women are not gold diggers – the problem is that guy in the corner office cannot get laid, and the guy in prison for rape, torture, murder and kidnapping gets laid like a rug. We want women to choose the guy in the corner office, and to accomplish that, we will have to give him the aristocratic privilege to use violence and not be insulted that blacks currently enjoy.

                  Or at least that is how Trump is likely to interpret it. And then, it depends on whether the courts will risk a Jackson, and whether Trump will go ahead with a Jackson.

                  But hell, Trump is already doing a Jackson, because he illegally built some fairly impressive looking wall for the mid term elections.

                  Which leads me to expect the courts will not risk a full out in your face Jackson. They are politely ignoring his existing Jackson for fear that confronting him over it would reveal their impotence. If they did not confront him for the mid term wall, chances are they will not confront him for the state of emergency.

A while back, some older white chap on TV stated that for GET to win 2020 he had to do 2 things: pull out of the Paris Accords [✓] and Build The Wall. He was laughed down and remonstrated. I think he was dead on.

            Then he is easy for 2020. People vote for peace and prosperity. He is delivering on prosperity, needs to deliver on peace.

  18. Neurotoxin says:

    The bill actually does seem to contain a poison pill on further reading. It basically says that in certain areas in Texas,

    “You can’t spend this bill’s money for a wall before September 30, 2019, and you can’t spend it after September 30, 2019 either.”

    The trick is to prohibit construction in certain border towns without “consultation” with the officials of said towns, which is required to go until 9/30/19. (The one town I checked is 99% Hispanic, so I think we can guess the political leanings.) And half of the funds can’t be spent after the fiscal year ends, which is… 9/30/19.

    • jim says:

      Does this poison pill affect State of Emergency money?

      • Neurotoxin says:

        Nope!

        The bill says (Sec 232),

        “…no funds made available in this Act shall be used for such construction while consultations are continuing.”

        So the Emergency deals with this underhanded trick.
