---CNN Poll Shows Amnesty Advocates Are Big Loser in Shutdown---

http://www.breitbart.com/2018-elections/2018/01/19/cnn-poll-shows-amnesty-advocates-big-loser-shutdown/

Loser position for dems. Yeah, yeah not in NY and California.

[/b]In Hungary they are gearing up to fight the religious war[/b] you pine for. If you expatriate yourself to there, we will have an easier time integrating the immigrants we need and who need us into our society.


Will be America's turn one day...if it doesn't adopt, broaden and strengthen Trunp's policies.

Where are you from?
Maybe if people weren't calling themselves .....-..... hyphenated American on a permanent basis.

Where are you from?
"Born and raised in Kentucky USA".

Well as a conversation starter you're not allowed to say; "That dress looks really nice on you, where did you get it"?
Because that would be 'racist', 'sexist', etc.

World's 10 Most Prosperous Countries

[Legatum Institute]

10. UK
9. Denmark
8. Sweden
7. Netherlands
6. Australia

4.Switzerland
3. Finland
2. Norway
1. New Zealand [4th year in a row]

All those failing socialist countries.

Ahem, 'social-capitalist' countries, actually.
Karl Marx is dead.

Exactly why the USA should follow the obviously-proven model.
It wouldn't take much doing.
Starting with a healthcare system that covers every citizen, free [public doctors in public hospitals], and by a levy [means-tested], and federal govt subsidies.

Rita Panahi: The #MeToo sisterhood is on a witch hunt

That the modern feminist movement is populated by joyless, far-Left radicals who slander anyone who doesn’t conform to their distorted worldview is nothing new. What has changed is that the powerful #MeToo campaign is becoming another outlet for unrelenting misandry, victimhood glorification and a disturbing, puritanical approach to human interaction.

Well there you go.

What is the expected sentence?

It was 2010...and the sentences were 18 years each.

The latest lot, allegedly plotting to blow up a passenger jet with a sausage mincer bomb, haven't been tried yet.

So Trump's a racist and wrong about some countries he mentioned...and *y'all* here are cheering for massive immigration to America from Africa and the Middle East?

Well good luck with that:

A Victorian Supreme Court jury has found three men guilty of plotting a shooting rampage at the Holsworthy Army Base in Sydney.

The jury found that the men planned the terrorist attack as payback for Australia's participation in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and for the jailing of other Muslim men for terror plots.

Saney Aweys, Wissam Fattal and Nayef El Sayed were found guilty of conspiring to prepare for, or plan, a terrorist attack.

On hearing the verdict, Fattal thanked the jury and told them that Islam was "the truest religion".


The court had heard that the men had plotted to enter the Holsworthy barracks with high-powered weapons and kill as many people as possible until they ran out of ammunition or were captured or killed.

The Prosecution had told the court that permission for the attack, a "fatwa", was sought in Somalia because the men's Australian religious leaders were opposed to violence.

Saney Aweys and Nayef El Sayed sought the fatwa by phoning clerics in Somalia.

Remember when BHO used to routinely refer to terror attacks as workplace violence or bad hair days?

Seemed to be a PC apologist for radical Islam/Islamic terrorists?

Oh no, some minor Hawaii official pressed the wrong button causing panic among the Islanders. Remember when BHO used to routinely refer to terror attacks as workplace violence or bad hair days?

Exactly why such buttons must only be able to be pushed by major officials in Hawaii.
Officials...more than one...together.

As the US nukes should be...not just one person firing them off on a whim.

I have a sense, Bambi, that you are about to draw the wrong lessons according to the typical disfunction of your brain.

Nah...all the lessons are there in plain sight [for any man willing to look].
Wealthy married man shouldn't have affairs with porn stars?

That's one.

The perpetrator of the Mother Emanuel shooting wasn't Muslim, tony.

True. And there was the case of the Oklahoma bombing, the Columbine shooting, and the Sandy Hook school shooting, etc, and more recently the Vegas shooting, etc. But they were not from Mexico and from Canada, and they were not real Christians. Christians show love for their neighbors.

Salute,

Tony V.

And using that reasoning, I would tell you that the people who did the 9/11 attacks were not real Muslims, either.

And what do you think the drug cartels are? Happy, healthy family businesses?

Seem to be, in many cases...just like the Mob.

A lawyer for President Trump orchestrated a $130,000 payment to a pornographic-film actress in October 2016 to prevent her from going public with claims of a consensual sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The reported payment came shortly before the presidential election and as the actress, Stephanie Clifford, 38, was discussing sharing her account with ABC’s “Good Morning America” and the online magazine Slate, according to interviews, notes and text messages reviewed by The New York Times.

Jacob Weisberg, editor-in-chief of the Slate Group, said on Friday that in a series of interviews with Ms. Clifford in August and October 2016, she told him she had an affair with Mr. Trump after meeting him at a 2006 celebrity golf tournament. She told him that Michael D. Cohen, a lawyer for Mr. Trump, had agreed during the presidential campaign to pay her the $130,000 if she kept the relationship secret, Mr. Weisberg said, adding that Ms. Clifford had told him she was tempted to go public because the lawyer was late in making the payment and she feared he might back out of their agreement.

We’ve been successfully ahead of most western countries in admitting and incorporating immigrants from the rest of the world for about half a century now. The GOP is recidivist and drags the nation backwards where and when it can, but our better angels and the long arc of history have been and continue to carry us to better and better places as a universally human country. We as a result cannot send our worst and least redeemable to Australia as Britain continues to do, but the are retarded by their even more deeply entrenched class system and provincial xenophobia so we integrate better than the Brits. Ghettoization, demonization, and low profile apartheid is what most directly feeds radicalization. Fairness, opportunity, inclusion, and a vital public sphere lead to safety, resilience, and growth.

If you are against blowing people up, be against blowing people up - a bombs and hatefulness problem. Shootings are about the same if you swap out guns for bombs. Hatefulness roots in fear and vengeance, the cancer and the forest fire of the mind.  

Immigrants seem to segregate/apartheid themselves on purpose.
Most of them don't seem to want to integrate, but rather set up their homelands/cultures in their new abodes...and not have much to do with anyone outside of them.

Middle Eastern men from afar dressed in business attire blew up NYC 9/11.
Surprising given America's "successfully admitting and incorporating immigrants from the rest of the world for about half a century now."
and its "fairness, opportunity, inclusion, and a vital public sphere".

Gran Torino showed it all about right.
"We're moving in and taking over, so you move out".
"All the other Americans have moved out, what are you still doing here?"
