For DU'ers old enough to remember 'compare & contrast' Trump with Nixon

Not a traitor I guess. Trump is a dumb Nixon on steroids?

Nazis say 'Trump has woken the giant'

‘Strumfront’ (I am not going to use it’s web name) celebrated Trump calling himelf a Nationalist. Hurrah. Legitimacy for ‘supremacists’, a seat a the table, a gun at the Synagogue

It’s as if, the political pendulum swung so far to the left over the past few decades, that it’s finally swinging back to the right. Trump alone is proof of that fact. We as White Nationalists should be optimistic of the future as the momentum is in our favor. White America is beginning to awaken!

AGREE 100%!!! Trump has woken the giant!

‘Tomorrow belongs to me’

Trump Calls National Emergency

I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!

I flagged this as a potential Reichstag event and was howled down. Trump follows the NSDAP playbook to the letter. What I fear is a Border Incident - an ‘unintentional’ incursion into Mexican territory that sparks a major diplomatic crisis wiping everything else off the front page (other than Wall Street).

Mexico to Offer Visas to Caravan Migrants, but Only 100 a Day

Source: WSJ

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala—Mexican authorities have agreed to grant humanitarian and asylum visas to a caravan of 3,000 Honduran migrants massing at the country’s southern border—but the authorities also appear to be breaking up the group into smaller pieces.

Ambassador Luis Manuel Lopez Moreno said migration authorities will allow some 100 migrants a day in to review their humanitarian and asylum requests.

The move ensures the migrants can enter Mexico legally until their cases are resolved, which normally takes a few months. If their cases are approved, they will be allowed to stay in Mexico permanently.

However, the migrants will be free to roam in Mexico, the envoy said. That means nothing prevents them from heading to the U.S. border and trying to enter while their cases are being heard in Mexico.

Migrant Caravan Masses Near Mexico's Southern Border

Source: WSJ

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala—A caravan of 3,000 Honduran migrants that has drawn the ire of U.S. President Trump began to mass near Guatemala’s border with Mexico, setting up a showdown with Mexican authorities who have vowed to prevent the group from continuing their journey to the U.S.

Tension was palpable in Ciudad Hidalgo, a tiny tropical village in Mexico surrounded by rain forest and banana plantations that borders Tecun Uman in Guatemala, with the two towns separated by a muddy river. Late Thursday, some 300 Mexican federal police officers equipped with antiriot gear were deployed to the border crossing ahead of the caravan’s expected arrival.

On Thursday, the Mexican government asked the United Nations Refugee Agency for help in assisting migrants filing for refugee protection at the border, as Mr. Trump threatened to deploy the U.S. military and close the southern U.S. border with Mexico if it doesn’t stop what he described as an “onslaught” of migrants.

1968: The Monkees commit suicide

1968 was a hell of a year. Their movie Head was purecommercial suicide. Here’s a beautiful reprint of the movies ending - jumping off a bridge, kicked off a TV - they knew what they were doing. Amazing

Trump treatens US Military action at Mexico Border

Flags Return of Family Separations

If you are looking out for Reichstag Smoke, a minor incursion into Mexico would spark a crisis that would wipe Khashoggi and everything else bar Wall Street off the front pages.

Trump says he is considering a new family separation policy at U.S.-Mexico border

President Trump confirmed Saturday that he is considering a new family separation policy at the U.S.-Mexico border because he believes the administration’s earlier move to separate migrant children from parents was an effective deterrent to illegal crossings.

Asked to respond to a report in The Washington Post that the administration is weighing a new family-separation policy, Trump told reporters, “We’re looking at everything that you could look at when it comes to illegal immigration.”

Trump said the soaring number of illegal border crossings is “a terrible situation” and argued that family separations likely would help scare away some undocumented migrants from trying to enter the United States.

“If they feel there will be separation, they won’t come,” Trump said.


Military Action on The Table

... I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!... @realDonaldTrump

Why now? Doh!

Where’s the fire?

There’s been a Adminstration buildup for several days about a mob of thousands of Hondurans marching towards the US border. Tens of Thousands. Drugs. Crime. If Mexico doesn’t stop them I will. They shall not pass.

How did we get this far?
How much lower can we go?
A rapist on the Supreme Court?
A resident journalist sawn to bits?

What have we become
my dearest friends
Everything we love
falls away in the end

And we can have it all
Our Empire of dirt
I have let you down
I have let it hurt

What’s happening to America?
(Sorry to be so down)
