It’s Not Over
Republican hypocrite fun fact: Trump ended a government sanctioned kidnapping policy that he enacted after saying he couldn’t end it. It was all for show, his reality TV show, the White House Apprentice. In this episode, he fixed it so that kids will still be sent to jail, but with their parents. He’ll arrest the whole family from now on and keep them together, in cages, indefinitely. Some will be sent to camps on military bases.
The 2,300 kids that are in concentration camps or spread out all over the country in foster settings are shit out of luck. The show he put on yesterday doesn’t do a damn thing for them.
He didn’t do it for humanitarian reasons. He put that show on because taking kids away from their parents didn’t go over well with his TV audience. It wasn’t good optics and the ratings were low.
Trump is not to be congratulated. This is a crisis of his own making. He didn’t need to put on a big show. He signed an executive order because it was good TV. He didn’t have to do that. All he had to do was make a phone call.
He got busted so he changed the script and squeezed in a new episode of his show, “The Humanitarian Special” starring Donald J. Trump. The setting: Another Dear Leader round table meeting with the press. He started the special episode by saying he wanted to keep families together, and then he had the obedient, “just taking orders” Republican members of Congress sitting around the table make his political points for him by praising him on the economy, military, trade, the tax bill, regulation, North Korea, China……all of the usual talking points that have nothing to do with the self imposed crisis at the border. After each Republican would speak he would say things like, “We have a lot of problems with Democrats, they want to let anybody in. Only Republicans care about keeping us safe. Millions of people are flowing up. Millions! Immigrants are a threat to public safety! The dilemma is that if you’re weak… the country’s going to be overrun with millions of people. And if you’re strong then you don’t have any heart. That’s a tough dilemma. Perhaps I would rather be strong but that’s a tough dilemma. Human traffickers use kids to get into the country. We’re liberating towns from MS-13. They’re pouring through.” The message? All immigrants are rapists, murders, thieves and gang members. Even babies.
The kidnapped children of the Trump regime are being transported to up to 17 different states in the middle of the night. American Airlines, United and Frontier found out about it and told the government to get bent. They refuse to participate in this.
New York recently learned that they have approximately 300 kidnapped children in their state. The federal government won’t let them provide any services until they apply for permission, which should take about 2 weeks. The federal government doesn’t want New York to know what’s going on so New York is suing.
One mother finally got her baby back, after 85 days. He hadn’t been bathed, he had lice, and he cried constantly. She can’t leave his sight for more than 5 minutes or he screams.
Former DHS director, Jeh Johnson, warns us that Trump’s America is reminiscent of Berlin in the 1930s.
If we don’t stop him America could be the Auschwitz of the 1940s.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a statement honoring World Refugee Day: “We will continue to help the world’s most vulnerable refugees, reflecting the deeply held values of the American people.” He did this right after Trump pulled us out of the UN Human Rights Council and the public found out that he has been arresting babies and transporting kidnapped children to other states in the middle of the night.
Ivanka thanked her daddy in a tweet: “Thank you POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border. Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values; the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families.” America threw up in its mouth a little bit after reading that.
Immigration fun facts: We’ve had net zero immigration across the southern border since 2009. We are at near full employment. Produce is rotting in the fields because we are in need of agricultural workers. “Illegal immigration” is not the problem. White nationalism is.
There was no crisis at the border, until now.
It’s not over until all of the kidnapped children are returned to their parents, Trump and his crime family are in jail, and the Republican party is no more.
ACTION ITEM FOR TODAY: Correct everybody who gives Trump credit for doing “the right thing” and watch this anti fascist PSA from 1943.
