Anywhoo, trump is railing against twitter because they banned “conservative voices.” The thing is, they were white supremacist and wacko right-wing conspiracy theorists. I personally wouldn’t call for banning them, because I truly believe in free speech, but let’s get our labels right. Unless you believe that conservative voices and white supremacists are one and the same.
I gotta give a shout out to Google. All the years that I have been on this platform and they have never given me grief about content. Honestly, if they did, I couldn’t blame them. The comments section on this blog can get really crazy at times. Some of the worst of us have posted here under the cloak of anonymity, but we let it slide because it’s good to let everyone know what we are dealing with in this country. Believe me, there is nothing united about these states.
Finally, Mr. trump wanted to take a victory lap (given his size it would have taken awhile) this weekend, because of his so called deal with Mexico on immigration and migrants at the border. Mr. trump wants us all to believe that his threat of tariffs against Mexico brought the Mexicans to their knees and forced them to come to the table and give him what he wanted on border security.
Predictably, as with all things trump, it was a lie. Just another con and grift on the American people to make it seem as if he is doing more than he really is. Light a match and start a fire in the house. While the house is burning, run and call the fire department. The fire department saves the house. You then take credit for saving the house because you called the fire department in time.
That’s how Mr. trump operates in a nutshell when it comes to governing for the American people.
We now know that this so called deal with Mexico was in the works all along, and that there was no need for the tariff con in the first place. But that’s how he played it, because he needed a distraction and a win. That is why he is so angry today, because the New York Times called him on his scam.
However, according to a New York Times report on Saturday, Mexico had already agreed to deploy troops months before Trump threatened the country with the trade penalties. Mexican officials made the promise during secret talks with then-Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in March, the Times reported, citing Mexican and U.S. officials familiar with the negotiations.
The difference between the promise made months ago and the one announced Friday night is the number of troops that will be deployed to various parts of Mexico, with the U.S.-Mexico border being a priority.”
America, you have been hoodwinked once again.
