Scott Walker: A Mexican Border Wall Is Just the Start; We Also Need One for Canada

Real Amuricans don’t eat poutine

Speaking to Chuck Todd on Meet the Press today, Scott Walker sought to trump Donald Trump by suggesting we also need to build a wall on the border with Canada.

“That is a legitimate issue for us to look at,” said the governor of Wisconsin.

Yes, we need to keep out those criminal Canadian hosers, with their strange speech patterns and odd cuisine and propensity for making our womenfolk laugh. Go back to Canada!

Donald Trump opened the right wing’s xenophobia flood gates, and there’s seemingly no end to the bad craziness pouring through. I think we need to build a wall between the Republican Party and the White House.

He’s apparently selling paintings.

He sold one on Ebay for over $100K.

“They’re just kind of so appalling that you hate to make comparisons,” said Andrew Russeth, art critic for the New York Observer, when asked to place Zimmerman’s painting in the context of a particular artistic movement. “It looks like someone is doing paint by number.”

Russeth panned the paintings as “a desperate cry for attention.”

“People like George Zimmerman and George W. Bush who don’t seem to be able to make their cases in other ways kind of see art as a field in which they can redeem themselves,” he added.

Christian Viveros-Faune, art critic for the Village Voice, said Zimmerman’s work fits alongside other “murderabilia,” comparing his work to paintings by serial killer John Wayne Gacy and cult leader Charles Manson.

re: #19 allegro

Have you seen the exchange rates lately? :P

But in all seriousness:

FUCK YOU SCOTT WALKER, JUST FUCK YOU!!

And fuck everyone who thinks this way about border security too! As previously mentioned the border with Canada is over 5000 MILES long, WAY bigger than the border with Mexico. It is, in fact, the longest undefended border on the whole freaking planet (although apparently the GOP want to change that).

The second problem is the number of illegal immigrants who come in from Canada every year would probably fill up a small community center if even that. It is NOT a major issue at all. You’re looking at a layout of likely BILLIONS of dollars per immigrant for some stupid ass fucking Republican grandstanding that is completely impractical and ridiculous!

If I sound wound up, that’s because I’m WOUND UP.

I came here legally, but increasingly I get the vibe from Republicans and their follows that, legal or not, I’m not wanted here. Apparently in their eyes I’m not “American” enough to stick around. Oh I’m sure they’d want to keep me because of my white skin but fuck that. I’m an immigrant. I’m part of a family of immigrant. It’s not about my skin color, it’s about my heritage, it’s about the journey I chose to take to start a new life in this country and try to find prosperity here. I have more in common with most of those Mexicans the GOP is so afraid of than I do with Republican politicians.

I mean, it’s ridiculous. I never thought I’d want to leave this country after I got here. I never thought there was anything that would make me want to go back to Canada. Now, I’m not so sure.

I’m not a criminal. I’m not a threat. I’m not an enemy. I’m just an immigrant trying to make it in my new home.

I shouldn’t be ostracized just because I have a fucking green card. If we’re going to go down that road why not just take it full bore and blow up the fucking Statue of Liberty?

They’ve already done it metaphorically anyway.

Apologies if I offended anyone but this shit is getting to be too much.

Ehhhh….If Slimlandia has lost 1/5th of his value in this year alone, pray tell what’s hapening with The Donald’s empire?

Taken together, Mexico’s four richest individuals have lost a staggering $21 billion so far this year - the equivalent of 20% of their total net worth and around 2% of Mexico’s GDP.

Partly to blame for this wealth destruction is the Mexican peso. In the last eight months, the peso has shed 15% of its value against the US dollar. This is playing havoc with company margins and profits, especially for those with dollar-denominated debt but peso-denominated operating income [read: Corporate Dollar Debt Explodes in Mexico as Peso Dives].

But it’s not just billionaires from Mexico who are struggling. On Monday, the last day of the latest stock market rout, $124 billion was wiped off the collective fortunes of the world’s 400 richest people. According to data compiled by the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, so far this year the world’s richest man Bill Gates has lost roughly $6.5 billion, while third-placed Warren Buffet’s fortune is down $9.5 billion

“Basically just to say we support the Confederate Flag, we support the American Flag, we support America,” he said. “This is not about racism. This is not about hate. We’re just tired of all the political corruptness that we have to go through in this country. We’re also here to say that we support the families and the victims of Charleston, of the reporters in Virginia, of everything that’s going on. That we’re just proud Americans.

Well then. We’ll just have to increase the size of the coast guard. Militarize them some more and have patrol boats out running up and down the borders in all the lakes 24/7/365.

Starting to think Graham hasn’t done much real lawyering for the Army in a long ass time, and they just kept him in the Reserves and promoting him to help with appropriations.

Lindsey Graham’s Curious Military Career

The senator has peddled an embellished, and at times inaccurate, narrative of his service in the reserve. A campaign video, which features several photos of Mr. Graham in uniform, says he “served as a reserve duty officer in Iraq and Afghanistan.” In fact, Mr. Graham’s war zone tours consisted of specially arranged stints that lasted a few days and coincided with trips he made as part of congressional delegations.

Until early this year, Mr. Graham’s official biographies said he had served as senior instructor at the Judge Advocate General’s School at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama. In fact, Mr. Graham told The Post he never set foot at the base or taught there. “I never took time to change it,” he said of the biographies. “I probably should have.”

It was not a one-time lapse. In 1998, Mr. Graham was criticized for claiming to be a veteran of the Persian Gulf War, even though he never deployed as part of that campaign. The Post also found that from 1995 to 2005, he put in 108 hours of training, less than a day and a half each year, on average.

Any real military lawyer would instantly recognize Trump’s oil plan as a flagrant war crime, yet Graham somehow doesn’t and instead attacks it on feasibility grounds.

This comment, regarding a black man killing a Texas Deputy:

He said the motive for the killing had not been determined but investigators would look at whether Miles, who is black, was motivated by anger over recent killings elsewhere of black men by police that have spawned the “Black Lives Matter” protest movement.

“I think that’s something that we have to keep an eye on,” Hickman said. “The general climate of that kind of rhetoric can be influential on people to do things like this. We’re still searching to find out if that’s actually a motive.”

“Cops’ lives matter, too,” Hickman said then. “So why don’t we drop the qualifier and say lives matter.”

Yeah. The movement’s rhetoric of “stop killing us” is just so dangerous. Cops’ lives have ALWAYS mattered, and that’s only just ONE point the movement is trying to make.

Because if they get their way, the refugee tide - political and economic - will be as great as the tide fleeing Communist Germany was. And make no mistake, his bosses in Kansas will do what ever they think they must in order to keep their captive workers here.

Meanwhile, in Duggar-land:

The Christian rehab where Josh Duggar will spend six months ‘reading the Bible, praying and doing manual labor’ to cure sex addiction

For the next six months, Josh Duggar will be ‘protected from the elements of life’ as he participates in a Christian rehab treatment program at Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois.

The 27-year-old, who has confessed to cheating on his wife Anna and signing up for the infidelity website Ashley Madison, will spend his time reading the Bible, doing manual work and praying at the residential facility.

There’s no access to email or cell phones and only a limited amount of television is allowed at the center where men are placed two to a room and must attend regular chapel services.

[…]

However, the Duggars have a connection with Reformers Unanimous and the treatment facility that’s linked with the North Love Baptist Church, which also runs a Christian school.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, Josh’s parents, attended the Reformers national conference there last October and gave a keynote address.

[…]

In other words, it’s the same old thing they tried when they caught him molesting his daughters.

These people never change.

And, while they don’t use the term, these kind of places where one spent the day praying, reading the Bible, and doing labor used to be monasteries, but I guess that term is too Catholic for them.

Josh Duggar in “Rehab” Facility Run by Pastor Known to Protect Sexual Predators

One of the leaders of the supposed rehabilitation center that Josh Duggar has checked into is under scrutiny for his involvement in helping another sexual predator avoid prosecution.

Patheos reports:

… Josh Duggar checked into Reformers Unanimous (RU), a Christian residential addiction treatment program in Rockford, Illinois, run by North Love Baptist Church and co-founded by the church’s authoritarian Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) pastor, Paul Kingsbury. Over the past twenty-four-hours, I have spoken with a number of individuals involved with or affected by either North Love or Kingsbury. Of primary importance are allegations that Kingsbury is actively supporting an accused sex offender, Richard DeVall, who is serving as a missionary in Bolivia and is sponsored by North Love Baptist Church. …

DeVall was accused in 2012 of committing sexual assault back in the 1990s at Bob Jones University; he was expelled and readmitted.

Devall’s victim reportedly contacted Baptist Pioneer Mission Agency, and asked that DeVall be returned to the United States so that he could face criminal charges. DeVall refused to return to the United States and indicated that the issue would be resolved biblically. The agency reportedly expressed that they would assist DeVall in staying abroad.

It’s no secret the Republican establishment is unnerved by Donald Trump and his lead in national and key state polls.

And now, after weeks of assuming his support would be fleeting, there is a debate about how to take aim at Trump — and just who should finance such an effort.

CNN’s Maeve Reston noted that most GOP strategists see risks in having the attacks come from the other candidates or their directly affiliated super PACs. So, she reports, there is conversation about what other group might raise money for anti-Trump TV ads.

“There are a lot of donors out there who see it as much too dangerous, obviously, for the candidates, or their allied super PACs, to go after Trump,” said Reston. “So they’re looking to more establishment PACs to potentially take him down in post-Labor Day ads.”

I like how the guy who ran interference for the Aryan Brotherhood bristles at being called a Nazi. That’s just precious.

Breitbart News, like its founder Andrew Breitbart, is particularly interested in the idea that liberals are the true racists, and that the media has unfairly portrayed Republicans, conservatives, and the Tea Party as racist. But saying the Aryan Brotherhood isn’t racist seemed like a step — maybe three or 10 steps — further. Breitbart News’s Brandon Darby says calling it a “white supremacist” group is spin. Darby points out that in the early 80s, an FBI document said, “The purpose of the AB is now power and is not a racial organization as it has been deemed in the past.” Today the Aryan Brotherhood reportedly works with Mexican drug cartels. This is not new; the Brotherhood cut a deal with the Mexican Mafia in the 1970s. The implication is that if you align with Mexicans, you can’t be white supremacist.

What Josh Duggar needs is 6 months outside of the USA in a non-hitw majority nation, doing public service designed to help cure him of his “Entitled Bad-Christian White Boy
Syndrome”.

What he needs to be in environment that doesn’t coddle him and tell him that he’s a victim of “liberal anti-Christian bias.” He needs a good ass kicking into the reality the fact that he’s a more immoral person than the gay people and religious skeptics he’s spent years insulting.

Meanwhile, in Duggar-land:

The Christian rehab where Josh Duggar will spend six months ‘reading the Bible, praying and doing manual labor’ to cure sex addiction

In other words, it’s the same old thing they tried when they caught him molesting his daughters.

These people never change.

And, while they don’t use the term, these kind of places where one spent the day praying, reading the Bible, and doing labor used to be monasteries, but I guess that term is too Catholic for them.

What a load of horseshit.

Sounds like a call out to one of the many Koch financed groups to do some underground back-door dirty ad work.

Can they get Jerome Corsi to whip out a quick book? Maybe a group of ex-Trump disgruntled employees to call out his business practices and how he screwed them. Or, gather up some politicians that helped Trump cut corners and bankers that were left holding the mortgages of Trump dumps and bankruptcies. Then do low light, voice-distorted interviews on FOX news of all of them selling him out.

They certainly have the experience.

2. Buy Yak-130 “combat trainer” from Russia using 3rd World straw-buyers
3. Place napalm in incendiary bombs.
4. Use Yak-130 to drop incendiary bombs on Trump limo while Donald Trump is in it.
5. Blame Russia for the attack and have Scott Walker lead the charge.
6. After Walker election, ramp up defense spending and gain no-bid contract to supply petroleum products to DoD.

They don’t seem to think about the effect this will have on the business environment over years and decades.
