Thank Goodness for Trump, the Ugly American

Donald Trump is the Ugly American incarnate. More so than even Dick Cheney or George Bush the Younger. His boorish manners and in-your-face self-promotion puts to shame the servile European, Japanese and other spittle-lickers who have profited from their associations with Washington at the expense of their compatriots. These would-be friends of Washington have nowhere to hide from the disgrace Trump metes out to them before their own peoples. All of this is good and necessary medicine to set the world on its way towards a multipolar future. Far more than we “American dissidents” have been able to muster.

Therefore, I can only say “godspeed” to Donald Trump in the New Year 2019. May he willy-nilly continue to do God’s work.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist activist, I have to confess; I do have a hug and a punch (more like a gentle tapping, nothing hurt) relationship with this President.

I am very morally concerned about how the US military's aided and abetted Saudi war crimes in Yemen, to which President Trump is particularly tone-deaf, when thousands of innocents have been murdered.

I am very hopeful, that this drawdown in Syria will make it possible for the country to return to some kind of normalcy, and all the rebuilding help it can get.

But getting immigration completely legal again; this is an area where I share President Trump's agenda. I love people, and agree that having good people immigrate to our country who have skills, and embrace the American ethos, is a wonderful thing. Please, just let them come legally, and healthy, is all I am asking.

I love those words, written by Emily Lazarus, emblazoned on plaque placed on the Stature of Liberty;

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

The issues here are that, A, we're living in the 21st century, and B, technology has taken over, big time, for what used to be done by unskilled labor.

OK, illegal immigrants have no money; they cannot speak the language of the country in which they want to live;; and may be desperately ill with diseases the US has barely seen in recent years, and have zero relevant job skills but expect that the US government is supposed to take care of you?!?

Forgive me, but on what planet do they think this is happening?!?

Trump Fact Check: how much does illegal immigration cost this country every year?

The article goes on to question: "What are the facts behind the economic impact of illegal immigrants? We checked his (Trump's) figures with immigration and tax policy experts across the political spectrum,who said he was exaggerating, at best.

Oh, Really?!?

"A little high," said Robert Rector, a senior research fellow with the Heritage Foundation.

Rector said his 2013 estimate pegged the cost of undocumented immigrants — the cost of services received minus their tax contributions — was about $54 billion a year.

A precise cost is nearly impossible to ascertain, many experts said. That's in part because undocumented immigrants operate within the shadows, leaving their full fiscal contributions — and use of taxpayer-funded resources — at least somewhat unknown.

"It's really hard to calculate anyone’s 'net cost' or 'net benefit.' We all use all kinds of services, from roads to military protection. How do we apportion what part of that is something I or you or an immigrant use?" said Kallick.

But let's say, for the sake of argument, the cost, currently, is around, +/- $54 billion; but that, in my world, is $54 billion too much, with our homeless Vets living rough in our streets, and our infrastructure crumbling, and there being "allegedly" no money to fix it.

I am very glad President Trump is attempting to do something about this, and the Dementocrats are looking, like disgruntled, petulant juveniles, through refusing the funding for a security wall at the border between the US and Mexico.
