Warfare State More Dangerous Than The Welfare State

Democrats, Elections, Socialism, The State, War

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is not a “vanity project,” but Democrats, and their idiot entertainer friends, are demanding that “long-shot 2020 hopefuls to quit ‘vanity projects’ and drop out.

Gabbard has an important mandate: Stop the Warfare State, which is more dangerous than the Welfare State. But the Democrats are now the War Party, too.

FROM MY WARTIME SOCIALISM:

The finances for the war, of course, will come from the private economy. For every dollar the government spends, a dollar is suctioned from you and me. For every new smiling military recruit sitting pretty with a home, a porch, and a pension, some poor sod will join the army of (nine million) unemployed.

Democrats Find Comfort In … Old, White Men

Democrats, Elections, Race, Racism

Looks like the the Democrats, the racist party that habitually blackens whites, are hoping the next U.S. president is one of two old, white men: Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Is there something confidence-inspiring about old, white men? Come on, admit it, you hypocrites.

The Hill:

Joe Biden holds a 30-point lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Democratic presidential field, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill, further signaling that the former vice president is cementing his place as the primary contest’s front-runner.
Forty-four percent of Democratic voters surveyed said they are most likely to vote for Biden in the 2020 Democratic primaries. Sanders comes in second place at 14 percent, while Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) places third with just 9 percent, the poll found.

The President Is The Quintessential Pro Wrestler. Let The Games Begin.

Democrats, Donald Trump, Elections, IMMIGRATION

President Trump is the quintessential pro wrestler. He will eat alive those empty Democratic suits, in the lead-up to the 2020 showdown. Should be fun.

(The entertainment element of the primaries and the election should sweeten the bitter pill that is Trump’s abject failure on immigration. Or, as Ann Coulter puts it, “The country is over.”)

The kick-off. Some off-the-cuff Trump quips about the 2020 Democratic candidates:

* Joe Biden has been dubbed “Sleepy Joe” and “another low I.Q. individual.”
* Bernie sanders is “Crazy Bernie.”
* Elizabeth warren is better known as “Pocahontas,” thanks to POTUS.
* Beto O’Rourke is “a flake.”
* “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is a total flunky for Chuck Schumer.”
* Kamala Harris was credited with “having a little better opening act than others,” but “a nasty wit.”
* “Mayor Pete is not going to make it.”

In His SOTU, 2019, President Trump Walks Back Promise To Reduce Legal Immigration

Donald Trump, Elections, IMMIGRATION, Labor, Law, Welfare

During their two years without serious political opposition, the Republicans floated  “The RAISE (Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment) Act.”

The Act was not exactly negotiated for with great vigor during the Republican dominance on Capitol Hill, from 2017 till 2019.

Still, in his 2019 State of the Union Address, President Trump managed to renege on the promises briefly made in the neglected RAISE Act.

Back in 2017, Steven Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies had motivated passionately for RAISE:

Seventy percent of legal immigrants enter the US based on family reunification visas, with no consideration given to their skills and education or the needs of the US economy. Legal immigration at current levels suppresses American wages, especially at the bottom rungs of the labor market. Most legal immigrants enter the US on family visas. RAISE would have slashed the family reunification immigration by 50 percent, from 11 million people every decade to 5 or 6 million, still enormous numbers. Fully half of the legal intake into the US is lacking in skills and constitutes a fiscal drain; roughly 50% of the legal flow enters the US with less than a high-school education. Again, a fiscal drain. The same proportion of households headed by immigrants access one of more the major welfare programs. Help out the poor and let the american taxpayer breathe. … The poor are very poor. You give them a raise by lowering the levels of legal immigration.
