THE REAL WORLD - MEXICO



THE FAKE PRESIDENT CREATES THE FAKE NEWS OR

HE WOULD NOT GET ANY MEDIA ATTENTION!

So where does Fake News come from.  These articles and excerpts of interest by a variety of great journalists, and much lesser talented ones like myself are about topics we cover and care about with an abundance of occasional personal comment thrown in.  

I am privileged to know some of these great writers, cartoonists and creative commenters, and to bring their world to you.  I try to add some humor, insight, disagreement, predictions to the fray.  The truth is what he calls fake articles whenever he leaks some stupidity and gets called on it, then it becomes fake news.

Hitler did the same thing and the people believed him, if they didn’t believe them he simply shot them. In the end Hitler shot himself and was burned. He didn’t obviously believe in himself.   I wish Donald good luck and hopefully a clean shot from a  .338 LAPUA from any source.


IDIOTOMANIA
He who argues with idiots should look in the mirror at times.  It make no sense to argue with T-RUMP, the man is sick, and should have been put out to pasture a long time ago.   Donald T-RUMP could have backed away from a threat to declare a national emergency in order to bypass Congress and build a wall on the southern border, but his preoccupation with his 2016 campaign promise persists.  But what exactly is “the wall” and why is the president so intent on getting $5.7 Billion dollar waste to fund it? Here are some answers to key questions: ( Now he wants more than 8 billion)


WHAT IS THE STATUS OF THE WALL?
The US-Mexico border is 1,954 miles (3,145km) long and crosses vast deserts and mountains in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. About 654 miles of that have some sort of manmade barrier, such as fencing or a wall. Most of it was built after 2006.

So what does T-RUMP want to do since he has not explained what he wants, common with him as the term “ UNPREPARED SHOOT FROM THE HIP” EXPLAINS HIM.
Details are thin on what would actually come from the $5.7bn. In recent weeks, Trump’s language has shifted from calling it a “wall” to a “barrier” and he has conceded it does not need to be concrete. 

We marked your words, my cat and dogs mark things too and like all your other words they are bullshit.

“The barrier or the wall can be of steel instead of concrete if that works better,” T-RUMP said earlier this month. 

“I intend to call the head of United States Steel and a couple of other steel companies to have them come up with a plate or a design … we’ll use that as our barrier.”

It would be a lot cheaper if we called a funeral parlor and just got a casket, stuffed you in it, like Stalin said get rid of the complainer and as a bonus, you get rid of the problem.

Do Americans want a wall?  In January 2018, 60% of Americans said they opposed Trump’s proposal to substantially expand the wall, according to the Pew Research Center.  Its about 20% higher now as T-RUMP  tries more bad deals to get it and people are waking up.

Expanding the wall is more popular among older people, white people and the less educated, according to the survey. Thats specifically includes GOP base DEPENDS users and Evangelical nuts.

To put this in perspective, also in 2017, more than 606,926 people who entered the US legally by air or sea, not land, overstayed their visas and remained in the country at the end of the year, according to the DHS. And in 2000, 1.6 million illegal border crossers were apprehended.

The Trump administration has a habit of using “illegal” to describe completely legal actions, such as seeking asylum at the border. Influential, far-right immigration opponents, including people in senior positions in the Trump administration, oppose many aspects of the asylum process. They have worked to drastically restrict it, despite many of their efforts being blocked in the courts. Trump repeatedly refers to a crisis at the border and an “invasion” of migrants. He cites the wall as the primary solution, even though deep doubts abound about its efficacy.

Do Democrats want open borders?   No. T-RUMP and his supporters lie again and again and say Democrats support open borders (“Loopholes in our immigration laws, all supported by extremist open border Democrats,” T-RUMP tweeted in June 2018), but Democrats have backed plenty of legislation that restricts immigration. Frankly in keeping with his mantra and soul , he is heavily confirmed as “ FULL OF SHIT”.

In February, the Senate voted on a bipartisan plan to spend $25bn over 10 years to expand the various physical barriers along the border and to protect the Dreamers, the estimated 3.6 million undocumented people who came to the US unlawfully as children. Trump rejected that bill.

If the public doesn’t support the wall and the Democrats – who now control the House of Representatives – won’t acquiesce, why is T-RUMP still demanding a wall?    The wall became a symbol for Trump’s presidency, a promise that he would limit immigration. The thing is, he has been very effective at making immigration more difficult for people trying to enter legally and illegally – yet the wall project still eludes him.

A hint to why he is so focused on getting this wall came in 2017, when the Washington Post published leaked transcripts from a private phone call between Trump and Mexico’s then president, Enrique Peña Nieto.

A week after taking office, Trump told Peña Nieto that he had to stop rejecting his claim that Mexico would pay for the wall, according to the transcripts. He suggested in the conversation that this was because the wall was more important as a symbol than as a national security project.

“I am just going to say that we are working it out,” Trump said. “Believe it or not, this is the least important thing that we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important”


WHAT MR. TRUMP SAID

“When during the campaign, I would say, “Mexico is going to pay for it.” Obviously, I never said this and I never meant they’re going to write out a check. I said, “They’re going to pay for it.” They are. They are paying for it with the incredible deal we made, called the United States, Mexico, and Canada USMCA deal.”

FALSE.
Mr. T-RUMP is rewriting the premise of his central campaign promise, a pledge that he has repeated hundreds of times and has said would be “so easy” to fulfill. 

Remembering that T-RUMP consistently lies and never sticks to what he says we just take it all with a grain of salt two shots of tequila and laugh it off as just  verbal farting.

Though he is often vague about how Mexico would foot the bill, Mr. Trump has offered occasional specifics, including compelling Mexico to make a one-time payment of $5 billion to $10 billion.

Before he officially declared his candidacy, Mr. Trump proposed to “deduct costs from Mexican foreign aid” in an April 2015 Twitter post.

As early as August 2015, his campaign website stated: “Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do, the United States will, among other things: impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages; increase fees on all temporary visas issued to Mexican CEOs and diplomats (and if necessary cancel them); increase fees on all border crossing cards — of which we issue about 1 million to Mexican nationals each year (a major source of visa overstays); increase fees on all NAFTA worker visas from Mexico (another major source of overstays); and increase fees at ports of entry to the United States from Mexico [Tariffs and foreign aid cuts are also options].”


ALSO FROM THE OTHER SIDE

A top Mexican government official took to Twitter on Tuesday to deliver a message his country has repeated again and again to the White House: Mexico will never pay for President Trump’s border wall.

“We just reached a trade understanding with the US, and the outlook for the relationship between our two countries is very positive,” tweeted Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray Caso. “We will NEVER pay for a wall, however. That has been absolutely clear from the very beginning.” He tweeted in English and Spanish.

 Videgaray Caso’s declaration via social media came in response to Trump’s remarks earlier in the day when he told reporters at the White House that Mexico will "easily" pay for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“The wall will be paid for very easily by Mexico,” said Trump. “It will ultimately be paid for by Mexico.”

Trump has insisted since his 2016 presidential campaign that Mexico would pay for a border wall to keep out illegal drugs and undocumented immigrants. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has been adamant that his country would never pay for such a wall.

The administration wants Congress to approve at least $25 billion to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Earlier this year, the Senate Homeland Security subcommittee signed off on a bipartisan border security funding bill that includes $1.6 billion for a border wall.
