Aw, just say it Daniel, and quit dancing around it.
12,513 Afghans became permanent residents in ’16. Their country is in the middle of an endless civil war between the Islamic terrorists who hate us and the Islamic terrorists who really, really hate us.
Only 31% of the population of Afghanistan can read. Around 1,000 of the Afghans we took in have jobs. 8,190 don’t have jobs. 3,158 are marked as unknown. That’s an 8% employment rate.
The left has been shrieking that wrapping up Temporary Protected Status for aliens from El Salvador will wreak havoc on our businesses and economy. In ’16, we took in 23,449 Salvadorans. Around 3,000 have jobs. The other 20,000 don’t seem to.
Before TPS ended for El Salvador, it ended for Haiti. 23,584 Haitians became permanent residents in ’16. Haiti is a permanent disaster. So are its immigrants. Only 2,691 or 11% are employed.
And in ’16, we also took in 5,159 residents from France. 40% of them are working.
The mainstream media turned into one big 24/7 outrage hole over what President Trump might have said. The alleged hole has filled the hole in CNN’s programming left by the lack of missing airliners or new revelations about Trump’s ice cream eating habits. But whether he said it or not, it’s undeniably true. And the media talking heads spitting like poisonous lizards at their teleprompters know it’s true.
Last week, they were shouting that sending Salvadorians back to El Salvador, a country run by gangs, was a monstrous act. But now suddenly El Salvador and Haiti are misunderstood paradises. If they’re such wonderful places, then let’s send the TPS recipients there. If they’re holes, then tell the truth.
NownownownowNOW, let’s not get crazy here! Tell the truth? The Left is so firmly ensconced in lies they probably wouldn’t know the truth by now if it bit them on the leg.
But that ain’t the half of it. They’ve gotten themselves mired in a real, umm, hole, one they dug their own selves with dishonesty and the contradictions integral to their crippled, unworkable worldview as the picks and shovels. Think of their position: Progtards now have to argue that either: a clear, incontrovertible shithole of a country is no such thing; or that they may indeed BE shitholes (and they are), but it’s just not polite or helpful to say so, and doing so might embarrass shithole denizens so horridly as to render them incapable of seeing to the changes essential to reversing their national shithole status.
Both of those positions are laughably absurd—obviously so, to any sensible American. But that’s it; it’s all the Democrat Socialist boobs have.
But does it get even worse for them, you ask? You already know it does. They’re also faced with the unpleasant prospect of having to argue that the Trump tax cuts are a disaster—even as a huge majority of Americans are already seeing more money in their pockets as a direct result of their passage, and will see more still when the cuts take effect in February. Jobs are easier to get than they’ve been in years—MANY years, not just one or two—and incomes are rising. The economy is showing every sign of being poised to take off like a rocket after years of Obama stagnation and hopeless futility; it’s as if the economy is Popeye, lacking only a can of spinach to jump back up off the mat, shake off his groggy daze, and start kicking ass again. Here’s just the latest example…of over a hundred now:
Jan. 11 (UPI) — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said Thursday it plans to invest more than $1 billion in a Detroit-area truck plant and move production of its Ram Heavy Duty trucks there from Mexico.
The move is expected to create more than 2,500 jobs in the Detroit area by 2020. In addition, FCA said it will give special bonus payments of $2,000 to approximately 60,000 f its hourly and salaried employees.
FCA credited the recently-passed tax reform legislation for these decisions.
“These announcements reflect our ongoing commitment to our U.S. manufacturing footprint and the dedicated employees who have contributed to FCA’s success,” Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a news release. “It is only proper that our employees share in the savings generated by tax reform and that we openly acknowledge the resulting improvement in the U.S. business environment by investing in our industrial footprint accordingly.”
President Donald Trump praised FCA’s announcement via Twitter on Thursday.
Of course he did. And the Democrat Socialists, meanwhile, can do only one of three things: declare their opposition to it; remain silent, pull the covers over their heads, and pretend it isn’t happening; or pooh pooh it as “no big deal.”
Not one of which option is going to endear them to Americans who can see with their own eyes just what a wondrous transformation Trump has wrought in such an astoundingly short time. The panicked or dismissive bah-humbuggery of liberal talking heads—worse still, their default “we’re all DOOMED!!” gambit—isn’t going to cut a lot of ice with people who aren’t just being told they’re better off, but are living it.
Throw in (as if all that wasn’t plenty enough to doom them for real) a program of importing thousands if not millions of hostile, ignorant, illiterate, unemployable, surly, permanent dependents—many of the Muslim portion which will attempt to murder us in job lots all across the country, a huge majority of the horde entire which will attach themselves to kindly Uncle Sugar Tit, never to be removed for the rest of their lives.
So what’s the Progtard comeback for all that, then? What’s their last-ditch strategy to erase the stain of failure and incompetence that is no more than the natural consequence of the practical application of their ass-backwards ideology, putting them back into positions of power they will abuse ruinously?
“He’s stupid! He’s CRAZY! He MUST BE IMPEACHED! 25th Amendment, 25th Amendment, 25th Amennnndmeeeennnnnnt!!”
With all the accompanying shrieks, lamentations, childish weeping, and catatonic trembling we’ve all been laughing so hard at as the icing on the cake.
Anybody out there think all that’s a winning electoral formula, one that will suffice to persuade Normals to roll it all back and return to the Democrat Socialist agenda of disgrace, defeat, weakness, impoverishment, and despair? Of establishing the US as a global welfare agency, to be milked as long as Other People’s Money lasts? Of turning our country into exactly the kind of shithole they’ve created everywhere shitholes are to be found?
ANYBODY? Besides Pelousy, Little Dick Turban, and Chucky Schemer, I mean?
If so, may I have some of what you’re smoking?
Update! Aesop says:
So, we’ve gone from a president who spent his first year in office calling America the shithole, to one who puts that shoe on the right foot.
I’m looking for a downside.
Ain’t none that I can see. Especially when you figure the fact that it’s absolutely destroying them into the bargain. Look for them to drop this one real quick and move on to the next Scandal of the Century of the Week. Just like they have with all their previous humiliating failures.
