GOP Leadership Instructs Lawmakers to Play Up Gruesome Murders and Rapes by Immigrants

 

"..... In a newsletter sent on Friday, House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., provided the caucus and staff with a messaging update that compiled immigrant crimes by date and congressional district. The newsletter is used by the GOP caucus to provide talking points and messaging guidance. .......

 

Studies have consistently shown that crime rates are actually lower among foreign immigrants than among native-born Americans. But the strategy does not appear to be a fair-minded discussion of immigration policy — or crime, for that matter.

Across the world, demagogues have deftly exploited bigotry to whip up anger using incidents of murder and rape...

Trump’s embrace of the strategy now appears to have reverberated across the Republican Party, with GOP lawmakers now openly encouraged to stoke fear over immigrant crime. "

Trump Org. was employing undocumented workers at 3 of its courses in NJ and 2 in NY. Company says it didn’t discover that until just now.

David Frum Retweeted Post Politics

Half the winter employees at Trump's Westchester golf course were present illegally in the United States. The Trump Organization seems to have violated US immigration laws on a serious scale - and it only began to clean up its act 2 years into Trump's presidency

Can you spell hypocrite?

Russian-Style Kleptocracy Is Infiltrating America

When the U.S.S.R. collapsed, Washington bet on the global spread of democratic capitalist values—and lost.

"......... The perils of corruption were an obsession of the Founders. In the summer of 1787, James Madison mentioned corruption in his notebook 54 times. To read the transcripts of the various constitutional conventions is to see just how much that generation worried about the moral quality of public behavior—and how much it wanted to create a system that defined corruption more expansively than the French or British systems had, and that fostered a political culture with higher ethical ambitions.

 

.........The defining document of our era is the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision in 2010. The ruling didn’t just legalize anonymous expenditures on political campaigns. It redefined our very idea of what constitutes corruption, limiting it to its most blatant forms: the bribe and the explicit quid pro quo. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion crystallized an ever more prevalent ethos of indifference—the collective shrug in response to tax avoidance by the rich and by large corporations, the yawn that now greets the millions in dark money spent by invisible billionaires to influence elections.

 

In other words, the United States has legitimized a political economy of shadows, and it has done so right in step with a global boom in people hoping to escape into the shadows........

 

The Founders were concerned that venality would become standard procedure, and it has. Long before suspicion mounted about the loyalties of Donald Trump, large swaths of the American elite—lawyers, lobbyists, real-estate brokers, politicians in state capitals who enabled the creation of shell companies—had already proved themselves to be reliable servants of a rapacious global plutocracy.

Richard Palmer was right: The looting elites of the former Soviet Union were far from rogue profiteers. They augured a kleptocratic habit that would soon become widespread. One bitter truth about the Russia scandal is that by the time Vladimir Putin attempted to influence the shape of our country, it was already bending in the direction of his. "'

‘My whole town practically lived there’: From Costa Rica to New Jersey, a pipeline of illegal workers for Trump goes back years
Accounts by former employees contribute to mounting evidence that even as the president vilifies workers without legal status, he has long benefited from their labor.

The president against illegal immigration turns out to be a businessman who has promoted it and benefited from it for years.

Trump admin at a loss on reuniting kids they took from parents

"These are children who were ripped from their parents arms...and now the government is saying, 'well, maybe the children don't really want to see the parents anymore'... It's a stunning argument," Lee Gelernt, of ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, says

 Could you imagine the outrage and the Uproar if American white children were being treated this way?

 

 The president is a domestic racist. But his racism has put him in a position where he's breaking International laws and absolutely showing the United States  cannot pretend to be the leader of the Free World with this kind of activity and behavior.....

 

 trump's domestic racism is fine with his ignorant base,

 but everyone else in this country knows that his policies are putting us in the same category with a third world country.  

Breaking international law and abusing asylum-seekers who are of a different  race and ethnicity than the ruling party class is strictly third world.

 LOL GOP Retweeted David Fahrenthold

Someone please explain to me how the president of the United States employing scores of undocumented immigrants as he costs America $11 billion in a shutdown he claims is over undocumented immigration isn't at least as big a scandal as vile yearbook pictures from the 80s.

We are watching a guy run Nazi-like propaganda campaign against immigrants that's resulted in thousands of kidnappings and people sent back to certain death, rape and torture and everybody knows it's all lies because his fortunes are built on the sweat of the undocumented.

If undocumented immigration is really so terrible, let's shut down Trump's businesses and see if that solves the problem.

The lack of *any* outrage about this on the right gives away the game.

They know he doesn't give a crap about undocumented immigration, but they are absolutely certain that they can count on his racism.

 trump has made a fortune on legal immigration.

He has abused illegal Latino immigrants as a businessman and

he has abused Latino migrants as president.

 Like Andrew Jackson, his Idol in the presidency,

trump knows how to financially benefit from racism.

Early filers have been taking to social media to express their ire at finding that their refunds were a fraction of what they anticipated or — worse yet

— that they would owe an unexpected bill to the IRS.

========================================

Tax code changes leave Americans asking,

'What happened to my refund?'

"If I were to estimate, two-thirds will pay more than they thought and one-third will get more than they thought,” said one tax preparer.
