Simply indefensible

 


Cinemateque Films

The mask gets ripped off America's fucking ugly face.
Oh, he's king alright. King of a shit hole. Trump: King of a Shit Hole

 

ON THE POLITICAL FROM sometimes things that President Trump says are simplyindefensible and in the course of the past twenty four hours we fear he’s gone to new lows in this regard.
Firstly… and this is not denied by the White House… he said regarding Haiti, El Salvador and generic African countries, “Why are we having these people from shithole counties come here.” We apologise for the vulgarity but the White House press room did not deny
that the President said this and released the following statement.

Certain Washington politicians chose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people. Like other countries that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation.

He will always reject temporary, weak and dangerous stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United
States through a legal pathway.


That hardly is an excuse. Presidents should know better. Presidents should obviously speak better. We understand that Ms. Mia Love, the only Republican member of Congress of Haitian descent, has called upon the President to apologise, and well she should.

Secondly, the President has decided not to travel to the UK next month for a long scheduled meeting with Prime Minister May, stating simply that he is “Not a big fan” of the new Embassy there where he’d have stayed overnight. The Queen herself had extended the invitation to visit the UK and so this is an affront to the Queen as well as to Ms. May. After Canada and perhaps Australia is there a more constant ally of the US than the UK? We think not. This is inexcusable and it is an embarrassment to the US Ambassador to the UK, Mr. Woody Johnson, who only recently had said that that the President was “absolutely” certain to visit the UK this year. Now, Mr. Johnson appears either foolish or wholly out of the diplomatic loop.

Finally, regarding the mid-term elections later this year, the prospects for the Democrats are growing more and more certain, and we turn to the comments yesterday by our friend, Mr. Greg Valliere, who wrote regarding the recent series of retirement notices on the part of
long standing Republican members of Congress, including the politically powerful Mr. Daryl Issa of California. Greg wrote:

TIME TO LEAVE? Not surprisingly – in light of these and other hypocrisies – the anti-incumbent mood is still very much alive; Trump has not drained the swamp. So there's an increasing chance of a "wave" election this fall, with Republicans losing control of both the House and Senate. Two GOP veterans in California announced their retirements this week in districts that are likely to shift to the Democrats.

THERE ARE NOW 29 OPEN GOP SEATS, with a few more to come, compared to 14 open Democratic seats. And eight GOP House committee chairmen are stepping down – a sign, perhaps, that they have no interest in working for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2019. Since FDR, the party that controls the White House has lost, on average, 23 seats in the first midterm election. The Democrats need a net gain of 24 seats to recapture the House – now within striking distance.

THE SENATE APPEARED TO BE AN EASY CALL for the past few months, with the Democrats looking vulnerable in up to 10 states; they have to defend 25 seats compared to only 8 held by Republicans. Even this now looks close, with the GOP still the slight favorites to maintain their slim 51-49 seat majority, perhaps adding a seat or two – not the possible five or six seat gain Republicans had been hoping for.

THERE'S NO GREAT LOVE FOR DEMOCRATS, who still don't have much of an agenda other than "we hate Trump." They desperately need fresh blood, but Democrats have one very big advantage – a highly motivated, angry base that will turn out to vote. Chances of a "wave election" continue to grow.

We are life-long Republicans here at TGL, having voted for every Republican candidate in our voting lifetime save for two votes cast for Mr. Clinton. We have voted for one Republican senator after another; we’ve supported every Republican congressman in our districts. We are center-right; we believe in free markets; in state’s rights; in small government and local, hence we were overjoyed to find a Republican House, Senate and President at the November election fifteen months ago, but that joy is gone as the prospects grow dire with each passing day.
