In Topics:   Immigration Stupidity  Trump  Pundits
President Trump tweeted out an encouraging piece of news of his intentions to sign an executive order to halt immigration for 60 days. Sounds like a 3-year belated good start of some kind, right?
I’ve just say right here that, as much as I liked and supported candidate Trump, my feeling now is this guy is nothing but a bullshitter. He may have sincerely meant what he wrote in that tweet even, who knows? However, he feels no compunction to make good on his word. He would have no problem with tweeting something just the opposite of this next week.
Even when Trump gets on a roll with an issue, he won’t follow through. Whatever E.O. he’d actually write on this, it’ll be “blocked by judges” or “those D’s!” “Just do it” is not a motto of the Trump Administration.
Anyway, the always hopeful Peter Brimelow, chief of VDare, is just glad that the word "moratorium" is being bandied about now, only 25 years after he suggested it - see Trump Has Put An Immigration Moratorium "In Play." Not Enough—But Something.
We haven't featured any Tucker Carlson clips here in most of a year. I've read lately (but not seen myself) that he'd gone a little overboard lately by blaming everything wrong on China. I'll have to look at some recent clips to decide. In this 8 minute clip about this E.O., President Trump, and the elite opposition to it (the American public is ~80% on board!), Tucker has done his usual excellent job. If nothing else, at least watch from 04:10 for about a minute as he eviscerates a statement by Beto O'Rourke. Kick ass, Tucker Carlson!
Yeah, I've gotta watch this guy more often.
