    Trump 2.0 Continues

    It seems clear to me that there's a level of support and sophistication to this undertaking. That means there's clearly more to it than meets the eye or is being reported. If it's actually is a staged event, that fact will be hard to keep under wraps as this continues to gather momentum and garner public attention... they may come to wish they had kept it a little more low key. If not, there are a few first rate logistic managers in that crowd with bright futures ahead of them.

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    The first 200 (or so) of the caravan have arrived in Tijuana by bus. Estimates put the total number up to 11,500 now vice the 3000 some news outlets are reporting. I'm curious as to who is paying for the busses and pulling the strings here, this is no small thing, it now stands as a huge, well organized logistical machine and Mexico has been pretty cooperative throughout. Although I have had limited dealings with Mexican folks, when I think back on those I have had, the word cooperative doesn't come to mind.

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    Hanging your hat on open source intelligence reporting is a fools game. It's either old news or it's wrong news. As for the migrant caravan, I'm rooting for ya. If their entry into Mexico serves as any indication, it won’t be an orderly crossing at the US border. As was the case in Europe, they are unlikely to be deterred by procedure and I would expect to see such tactics as using the women and children as shields and diversions (as was the case at the Mexican border). Even if that proved not to be the case, prudence would dictate being prepared for the eventuality and a tent city or some sort of temporary housing will be required during the vetting process.

    Not quite, most of these weapons likely have the serial numbers removed and that makes them untraceable. Had the seizure not occurred at the border, the Liberals would have counted these guns as domestically acquired. It's everything people accuse Trump of and so, so, much more by virtue of the extent of the lies and the support of the media. Compared to the Liberals, Trump is a rank amateur. In my view, Liberals complaining about Trump are like cows that fault the field mouse for having a dump in the pasture.

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    What would YOU do about this? Would you advocate for bussing them to Canada from the US border... that could be done and I think the US would pay for it, or at least a portion of it and consider it a bargain. You up for that? BTW, I bet the wages that would have been payed anyway are factored into the cost projections. The military is the cheapest source of self contained manpower by far and some of the estimates are 7000 migrants vice the 3000 some other news organizations are reporting (it seems to me they are trying to minimize it). So, tell me the Democratic/Liberal solution here, I've been looking and I can't find any recommendations from them.... even doing nothing is a deliberate course of action and constitutes a plan. How am I supposed to get on board with your plan if you steadfastly refuse to share it?

    It isn't veterans groups who are denouncing this, it's political foes seeking to profit by invoking the spectre of soldiers past and soldiers present.They have managed to weaponize Remembrance Day for their own petty purposes and it fools no one. I can't speak for others, but I find it pathetic...

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    Somehow the umbrella factor has become a huge issue with the crazy left, most people evolved beyond this mode of thinking in grade 3... It makes me long for the days I instructed Basic Training.
  8. Cool, we have reached a place in time where challenging voter fraud is racist and the desire to properly integrate new immigrants proceeds from "a dark place." I fear that the madness which has infected Toronto is spreading. It seems to me that NOT giving refugees the support they need (like in Toronto) qualifies as racist. More and more I see that those doing the name calling are exactly what they appear to be in opposition to. PS. Look, they read my mind.... my only issue here is the sanctuary city thing. A sincere apology might get me past it and over it. https://torontosun.com/opinion/editorials/editorial-trudeau-shirking-on-refugee-costs

    Why You Need Trusted News Sources

    Fascism is about control of the media, propaganda is simply a tool to be wielded after control is established. Truth craves facts and when facts are missing it makes truth elusive. Control is about sidestepping facts and spinning truth to suit the agenda. While there is enough guilt to go around, Trump's efforts at propaganda pale when compared with CNN so it seems clear to me that he doesn’t have the control or even a portion of the control you credit him with. He may become enraged at them, but that in no way garners him any power over them in fact it’s symptomatic of a lack of power over them. The entire discussion about the wreath laying in Paris stands as an example, it was all noise and no news; completely lacking in any of the impartial facts I needed to make a judgement for myself. Who was controlling that agenda and why? Finding the truth is easy, tell me what the weather was, tell me what his meetings where about, who they were with and what time they ended, tell me where the beast was located, then I can tell you what likely happened and why. The whole discussion about rain in his hair was nothing short of foolish. BTW, I went looking for that info and couldn’t find it. When I seek to identify the “fascists” I’m looking at who exercises the control… not who is being mocked and its by the preponderance of the evidence. Fascism also tends to exalt race of the sovereignty of the individual which seems to be a liberal position of late but regardless, fascism is such a grossly overworked term that it retains little of its actual meaning and virtually none of its impact. It's now a bit like the word hero or nazi.... mostly meaningless.

    Why You Need Trusted News Sources

    Propaganda is commonly defined as “information, especially of a biased nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.” Editorial staffers may decide what content to cover and what not to cover, but news is an entity onto itself and doesn’t dance to the tune of subscribers or yield to their whim. By contrast, a classical music station does and arguably should. Playing 80s rock would be silly, right? If a news station has one main thrust and one main theme there is clearly an underlying agenda in support of that theme. When agenda transcends the news and the news becomes defined by the agenda, it enters the realm of propaganda by virtue of its intent. Even if you don’t like the term, you would have to admit that much of what passes for news is now weaponized and CNN has pretty much cornered the market on all things anti Trump. So in short, no… when the news is driven by the politics of the subscriber, or worse by the station owner, or worse yet, by the state or a segment thereof, it becomes, at a minimum, something other than news. The fact that it has a particular following is simply a byproduct of polarization IMO. I fear we have gone so far along the polarization road that the white lines have become blurred. The message is controlled but not by the subscribers, they are simply along for the ride, share the same destination and are willing to pay the toll in order to get there. The fact they are on the same bus isn't news and they aren't actually the ones doing the driving. Cheers

    It's CONTROL OF THE MEDIA that's the danger here.... not attacking the media for being controlled or those who hold and exercise that control. Or even worse, the public who support and enable those who seek to entrench and expand that control. It's like we are in some demented alternate universe where everything we have learned from history has been turned on its head... people are actually proud of how wrong they have it. I'm reminded of the quote "thinking themselves wise, they became fools."

    Trump 2.0 Continues

    Yes, they were indeed covered there, I'm even willing to bet the beast was there too and parked next to the LZ.... the problem is the 60 miles between here and there and the transit time involved in getting the beast back to the start line (and then back again) in Paris traffic after the primary plan fell through. Since I know you understand the time, speed, distance and security aspects of the equation, I can only conclude that you simply wish to perpetuate the notion of "conspiracy to remain in the hotel and watch FOX news". This theory simply doesn't resonate with most thinking people and when the dust settles, we will likely see that it was the Secret Service that shut this down. PS: Actually, we likely won't hear about that as most presidents don't throw their Secret Service detail under the bus. To me, and I bet most of your target audience, that would be worse than missing the event... see how this works?

    They have been consistently trying to change the definition of "assault rifle" over the years. In order to be an assault rifle, by definition, it must be capable of "selective fire" and that is already illegal in Canada. it must also have a high capacity magazine which is also illegal in Canada as a 5 round magazine is the limit. For the ex military folks old enough to remember the FNC1A1, that is (was) by definition a "battle rifle" as it didn't have selective fire. If you think that's just semantics, my pickup truck is for sale and the new racing stripes mean it's now a Ferrari... Liberal buyers preferred!

    I’m not sure what to make of the media culpability here. People are fond of characterizing Trump’s feud with the media as being fascist. Short memories I guess because today is a good day to review such things before wearing a “never again” t shirt. They should actually be concerned about control of the media and, by extension, who exercises it. Even worse than control IMO is willing participation in a clearly biased, manipulated and deceitful process. Not only is it beyond lying, it approaches a level of hypocrisy that only a true fascist could appreciate.
