53 Military command needs to be gutted. The PC bullshit (retiring "rifleman" in the marine corps? women in combat units?) needs to go. Pork projects like the F35 need to be put under a microscope. The bureaucracy needs to be pruned, whacked, whipped until pliable and then informed that they are servants of the people doing the real work. They are at their beck and call. You want to be a desk jockey, you sit up in the fucking saddle.

How many other government agencies need the same treatment? Those that shouldn't be dissolved outright.

55 So, a little conspiracy theory on a grumbly Wednesday.

The ecotards make hay when oil rockets. "Peak oil!" they cry. They hate when it's cheap, it completely undermines their bollocks messaging and makes their "alternatives" look like the pointless shitshows they are.

So then. A war in the traditional oil production powerhouse region would be right up their alley. Especially with an ally in place to stir the pot and stoke the fires...

Seriously, I'd have laughed at this thinking ten years ago.

Yeah as long as it's legal. Meaning they wait, like everyone from overseas, to pass their citizenship test and be given documentation and then enter into American life as a taxpayer.

And enforce that law. And treat illegals like you'd treat a delinquent US taxpayer. And actually enforce THAT law. And require businesses not employ people without documentation. AND ENFORCE THAT LAW.

Please inform me if you have any questions, or if you in any way require elucidation on the subject. And by all means, if you're not certain, positive, left without a shred of doubt as to the definition of any of the words I've used, don't hesitate to reach out to me and let me know. I'll clarify.

Open
borders means what Obama is doing now. Letting in over 1 million/year
via LEGAL immigration at the same time he is allowing tens of thousands
of illegals and pushing for amnesty for them. Of those million plus 90%
of them come from third world shit holes, have no skills, and go
immediately on welfare.
So you are good to go as long as you are not a white Christian family wanting to home school your children.

"This incident in the Persian Gulf, which probably will not be the American forces' last mistake in the region, should be a lesson to troublemakers in the U.S. Congress," Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, head of Iran's armed forces, was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

As to Haley, she showed that the DOPe priority was hitting at Trump, and those who don't disagree with him, instead of the JEF and Ds. Not angry, mostly disappointed that a Tea Party electee let herself be used like that.

No anger here. You gotta figure her total audience was comprised of stoners too wasted to pick up the remote.

There's a divide in this country right now and two candidates have placed themselves on one side of the divide. One of these two candidates will win the nomination. She has now placed herself on the losing side of the divide.

Instead of being 'up and coming' she has shot herself in the foot. I don't get angry at people who shoot themselves in the foot, I laugh at them.

124 Can you precisely define what you are referring to when you say "open borders"?

Does "open borders" to you also include the position of wanting a limited amount of controlled, legal, orderly immigration?


Open borders is what globalist sociopaths like the anti-Christ George Soros are working feverishly to accomplish. Their aim is to wipe out any society that dares oppose their efforts to install a New World Order, another term for a world government headed by the UN with them in charge and unaccountable to the people.

Americanism stands in their way and must be destroyed by any means possible. We like our freedom and are known across the world for our fierce independence and refusal to be told what to do or how to think. It's this attribute that scares these sociopathic psychotics.

The muzzie invasion of Europe is a well-coordinated attack upon Western values, supported by such leftwing organizations as Code Pink and Soros' own Open Borders Initiative. This is what they have planned for the whole world, that there be no distinct societies where freedom is valued. Look at the dramatic rise in crime wherever these muz animals infest civilized society and get ready for it here.

American couldn't be defeated militarily, so our enemies set their sights on conquering our society, against which there seems to be little in the way of resistance.

This is why border and immigration enforcement is so important. I certainly don't want to see my country invaded by the muz scum that's disrupting Europe. I want my values upheld by my government and if that includes stopping all immigration for a decade, then so be it.

We are seeing the entire concept of multiculturalism implode along with the myth that all societies are equal and equally good. This is a good thing.

It's not xenophobic to want to live in peace surrounded by people who share your values, regardless of how the left attacks that idea. We have that right, and as citizens of the greatest society the world has ever known, anyone who doesn't like us is free to leave us in peace.

Okay, so to all of you people who are angry at what Nikki Haley said.


Can you precisely define what you are referring to when you say "open borders"?


Does "open borders" to you also include the position of wanting a limited amount of controlled, legal, orderly immigration?
Posted by: chemjeff at January 13, 2016 10:55 AM (uZNvH)
I don't care about her "open borders" bullshit. I know that she, like Rubio, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the CoC and will get their Juans and Juanitas over the border no matter what.What I care about is that, given a national audience and a chance to not only hammer the dog-eating crackhead for his eight years of gross treason but to tie his legacy right to Hillary's cankles and to Bernie's innumeracy, she decided (with the connivance of Paul Ryan) that the best use of her precious time would be to slam the current GOP frontrunner and his supporters -the very people whose votes her RINO asshole nominee needs - and then smugly brag about it the next morning.Fuck her with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire and dipped in lemon juice and salt.

190 "American couldn't be defeated militarily, so our enemies set their

in the way of resistance." backwards boy

right ... and it started probably 100 years ago with the "commies" infiltrating. Buckley resisted after WW2 and started a conservative movement. We lost in the 60's to the hippies and radicals that murder but still end up in the universities. Cronkite admitted after retiring he had to hide his agenda.

The communist thing out of Russia ushered in Jarrett/Obama whose mentors/father were card carrying commies. Amazing. I'm not sure how the globalists play in that exactly, if they are the same or what. Of course the Obama Chicago church and black panther types supported commie backed Sandinistas in the 80's.

And Russians saw the advantage of backing the Muslim invaders, as a tool against the west. Of course Russia is behind half the ME problems, but they didn't give their nukes to the Muslims. Pakistan probably got theirs from the West, as we were infiltrated by those "wonderful" immigrants, that we insist on educating. Globalist Clintons shared our tech with China ... (Chinagate).

The big picture does not look good for Obama's "all you need is love" strategy, which is obviously just another front for his platform of constant surrender.

Count me in on that reduce legal immigration. We are currently letting in 1M+ of which the overwhelming majority are from 3rd world shitholes. Nearly all of them are illiterate and have zero skills. Most of them go on welfare and most are NEVER assimilated.


We need to reduce the number of LEGAL immigrants to no more than 100K a year until we no longer have communities like the one near LA which is really Mexico in the US with no English speaking people. There is no sane reason why we allow more legal immigration than all of the other Western democracies combined.

Because all of the illegal immigration occurring is de facto legal immigration, as a result of non-enforcement and executive pigheadedness.

So what?

You seem to be ignoring current reality: the Mexican border is wide open and has been for decades. The majority of jobs these days are going to illegal immigrants who are working under the table. The SB muz terrorists, like the Boston Bombing Brothers were legal immigrants.

I'm all for stopping immigration completely for however long it takes to revamp the system. We've done it before.

If you want to live in my country (and this is MY country, the blood of my family is in this soil), you learn our language and use it, you learn our laws and you abide by them, you keep yourself informed and educated about politics and you strive to be the best American you can be.

Ex post facto rationalization, like yours, is akin to pissing up a rope: She made her choice to stand up and be counted, and last night she declared her membership in the GOPe. This isn't a difficult decision to understand either, it is the traditional way to get campaign money and political office advancement.

This time though I think the revolt is serious, and by my standards she made a colossal political error. Trying to justify what she did is a mistake as well.

she prefaced her comments with the bit about how wonderful immigration is, just people seeking a better life, like her. No ... those are not the people America is upset about ... that is propaganda, subterfuge, straw man. There are many Americans being pushed out because of CoC demand for cheap labor in sync with leftist demand to replace traditional Americans.

That kind of flowery "all children of the world just want a chance" talk is the talk of the amnesty people. There are huge issues and at this point of Trump's popularity (and even he said he would have that big door) ... for her to denounce Trump directly is to push the RINO position. When she directly trashes the guy Republicans favor by 5 to 1 over Bush or Rubio, she is giving a RINO speech against the voters, not a SOTU response.

What's objectionable is that she is pretending that our current masses of illegal immigrants and Muslim "refugees" are:

--- abiding by our laws
---loving our traditions

That is delusional. That they are not abiding by laws and loving our traditions is why people are so dang upset.

That's exactly what I'm NOT saying. In fact, I'd like to open our borders to any European with a birth certificate to come here to the US if they so choose.

But there needs to be a real screening process and a real set of enforcement rules behind it. H2B visa levels need to be in the hundreds of thousands, not millions. And the statistics that come out need to be raw and real, not designed to hide evidence of what is going on.

If you had said this, or any other moron had said, this, I wouldn't object.

Because of this, there's enough wiggle-room in this statement that I'm convinced this is just a smokescreen for more open-borders/amnesty-for-all bullshit from the GOPe.

Well I'm not in favor of any immigration from the third world shitholes of the world.

I simply do not want any more, Indians, Asians, Africans or Latinos or Muslims immigrating legally and definetly not illegally.

We are a country of 325 million people with nearly 100 million people out of the workforce with nearly 20 trillion in debt with no end in site with pathetic job growth and a world economy on the brink of collapse.

These groups historically vote 2:1-4:1 for Democrats. And we have 32+ years of data to back that up - They are not going to be flipped.

I want immigration virtually eliminated with exceptions for only the most exceptional and benificial to this country.

I want our immigration to revert back to pre-65 immigration act and reoriented back to the first world, Europe and the Anglosphere.

And that is where I am at. Have a secure border.
But the vibe I am getting from the HQ is that if a person doesn't explicitly say they are in favor of restricting immigration - not even illegal immigration, but legal immigration as well - then that person wants mass amnesty and is secretly in the pockets of the CoC and wants to throw open the borders to everyone. I don't think that's correct.
And truth be told I don't know where Nikki Haley actually stands when it comes to immigration, after all she is a state governor not a federal office holder so her job doesn't deal with the specifics of immigration anyway.
I would hope that people take a step back at the moment and not regard every single LEGAL immigrant as an "invader" who is "stealing jobs" or who wants to turn the US into a third-world shithole. Yes, SOME are. But not all.

----------------------------------------------------

You're missing the point. Heck, you're missing the entire Trump campaign success.

The completely polarized positions on this issue are well known.

First, Republicans have caved for years to a nuanced "you'll get border control in return for more amnesty", and people know the latter happens and the former does not. It's sort of silly to try it again.

Second, the economy is so terrible that many people are scared stiff of low cost labor eroding job security. Very wealthy companies, and you hear their names here all the time, arguing for more foreign engineers to be admitted even while laying off Americans underscores how pervasive the danger has become in this economy.

So, no, those aren't the only choices. Border control is not mentioned in your I/O obfuscation. The politics are clear ("crystal!") and Nikki Haley is smart enough to understand that fact. She opened Pandoras box-- when she could have left it entirely alone -- and now she has to live with the consequences.

In my estimation, she made exactly the same error Rubio made and is totally fucked. I am bewildered how ostensibly intelligent politicians don't learn not to play with fire, but that's an entirely different issue.
