Obama says ‘it’s about the families’ after Oregon meeting
So Obama has flown to Oregon to visit the families of the latest highly publicized shooting. I don’t know if he met with all of them or not, but if it were me, the last thing I would want to add to my grief would be a meeting with the Muslim in Chief. Obama isn’t sad that they lost their kids, and he doesn’t grieve with them. He is happy when incidents like this occur because they are politically useful for him and his party. Everything that Obama and the Democrats do is about more government, less freedom, and working toward undisputed Democrat hegemony.
“We’re going to have to come together as a country to see how we can prevent these issues from taking place” so regularly, Obama told reporters following the approximately hour-long, private meeting with grieving relatives of those who were killed and injured. “But today, it’s about the families, their grief and the love we feel for them.” The White House did not say how many people Obama met with.
“We” are doing no such thing. I am not willingly going to adopt or approve of any leftist positions. Obama may have gone to visit the families (strictly PR) but he wasted no time calling for gun control. I suppose that the reason why Obama did not say how many people he met with was because a lot of those people did not want to see him.
If the Democrats were really serious about dealing with such violent attacks (really it is not possible to end violence, only reduce and respond to it), then they ought to consider other options beyond taking guns away from law abiding citizens. They always want to take the guns, but they never consider other options like banning the drugs many of these crazies are on, or closing down public schools.
Regarding the Democrat’s end game; I would not at all feel safer knowing that the only people who own guns (legally) are government forces. Also, assuming that I get to be old and weak, I wouldn’t feel better being beaten to death by younger hoodlums vs. being shot to death by them, when I could have dispatched them in either case if I’d been allowed to have a gun.
Obama denouces ‘inflammatory’ Trump immigration policies
I believe the reason why the Democrats and the Establishment GOP are leery of Trump is because they know his policies are good for the US, and that he is serious about saving the US.
That being said, what initially sold me on Trump was his comments about the illegals and the proposal to build a wall. Without a secure border between the US and Mexico, the US is as good as dead.
Washington (AFP) – President Barack Obama denounced the immigration policies of leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump Thursday, without naming him directly, in a speech to Latino political leaders.
Anyone following “Latino political leaders” is most likely not assimilated into the US culture. Out of one side of their mouth, the left will carry on about how all immigrants are the same with their “nation of immigrants” nonsense, while out of the other side of their mouth they carry on with victim narratives and insist that white people are more endemically evil than other groups. If all immigrants are the same then where are the Irish leaders, German leaders, English leaders, and Italian leaders? There aren’t any, because all those groups assimilated into the mainstream culture.
I find it interesting how the overton window allows for mestizos to remain ethno-nationalists, and even form their own KKK style group, while other groups are stigmatized for acting in such a way.
“The greatness of America comes not from building walls,” Obama told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute anniversary awards gala.
True that it doesn’t come from walls, but walls can prevent it from being undermined by hostile invaders. The US was originally a product of European ingenuity. That is not to say that other people cannot contribute in a positive fashion, but not everyone will. Immigration ought to be regulated in terms of how it is beneficial to us, not to the Democrat party.
“The anti-immigrant sentiment that has infected our politics is not new, but it is wrong,” he said, before adding that “economists agree that immigration does not hurt our economy; it grows our economy.”
It’s not wrong, and I don’t see the relevance of what Obama’s paid “economists” have to say. The fact is that no one asked me if I wanted to be submerged into Mexico, and most of us, in fact, do not want to be submerged into Mexico. Trump’s popularity is a testament to that. We have nothing to gain from the US becoming Mexico. If the Democrats want to be politicians over Mexicans then they should go to Mexico and run for elections there. Most of the Mexican government is white, so it should not (logically) be an issue.
The politicians have the money to insulate themselves from the immigrants they bring in. It’s the low-income white people who will suffer the most from 3rd world immigration, as they cannot afford to escape it. But even those of us who are rich will suffer, because the poor 3rd worlders will vote money out the rich people’s pockets and into theirs. I would rather have the rich people keep their money and invest it in the economy, than some 3rd world baby momma’s kids. Or at the very least the government ought to do something productive with the money like set up a colony on the moon or Mars.
Trump, a billionaire real estate developer who has never held elected office, has promised, if he wins the White House, to expel immigrants in the United States illegally and to build a wall on the US-Mexico border.
He has also proposed repealing the constitutional right to citizenship of anyone born on US soil.
Both of which will preserve the United States (for a bit longer), and cut into the Democrat voting base. I fully agree with him.
His incendiary comments on immigration and other issues have dominated the nascent 2016 election campaign, and on Thursday the president condemned the logic of “saying clearly inflammatory things and then saying, ‘Well that’s not what I meant’ — until you do it again and again.”
That is not what Trump does. One of the reasons he is so popular is because he does not backtrack or apologize. He does have to clarify things when the media cuts and spin-doctors his comments.
The fundamental problem I have with the left is not so much what they do, although I do disapprove of that, but the fact that they force it on everyone. While I personally want nothing to do with things like homosexuality, Islam, or socialism, I have no problem with other people voluntarily engaging in those behaviors provided that they keep it to themselves.
