HOW TO MAKE MEXICO PAY: FUND BUILDING A FENCE BY “USER FEES” ON MONEY TRANSFERS AND BORDER CROSSING BY ILLEGAL ALIENS aka “UNDOCUMENT IMMIGRANTS”

Mexicans in the U.S. transfer huge amounts of money to Mexico.  These remittances pre-recession were in the area of $26 billion annually and climbing !  Now post-recession some $25 billion and climbing again.

(1)  Require a use fee on all remittances to Mexico.

(2)  A 2% transfer fee would raise $500,000,000 annually !

(3)  Exempt all persons who can show that they are legally here and/or that they have a paycheck with required deductions and that it is therefore not untaxed money.

Charge a service fee for all persons stopped crossing the border illegally.

(1)  Some 300,000 plus persons are caught illegally crossing the border.

(2)   $200 service fee would raise $60,000,000 plus annually !

(3)  This is no more than the cost for a tourist visa extension request !

Then leave it to the Mexican government to determine if they want to reimburse their citizens.

And then Mexico can have its cake and eat it too:  it does not pay the U.S. and saves face; but yet may pay its citizens back – FOR MEXICO’S USE OF THE UNITED STATES !!

OBAMA, LIKE MOSES, EXILED FROM AMERICA, OUR PROMISED LAND

Do we clap or do we weep?  A real life Greek Tragedy now comes to its end.  The hero of this tragedy is of course President Obama with America the setting and the American People both the chorus and the audience.

We can’t figure out who Obama really is. It seems hard to believe, but somehow we get the feeling that Obama, elected by the American people to be the most powerful man in the world, resents the very American people who elected him!

How can that be? How can you be both the beneficiary of the greatest gift that we can give, enjoy all that honor and respect; and at the same time be angry with us as gift-giver?

Obama could have been and should have been the American Moses leading us out of the dilemma and harm of that great divide between the genius of our founding documents and fathers and the legacy of 3/5’s of a person, slavery.

Obama (as an American Dr. Jekyll) adopted the very spirit and values of America as his plea to the American people – vote for me – and then you and I, together, we can change America so that the values of America will “finally” be realized in fact and not just in fiction.

Obama offered up to the American people the ability to confront that challenge in its current form today, and bless us, the American people were up to that challenge. In concrete terms, the most important and sacred Deed the American People had to do became reality: a man was judged as ‘nothing but a man’ and picked to lead us. No longer 3/5’s of a man, but just a whole man.

But, Obama,this American Hero, has been brought down by his own conflicts.  So we come to one irony of the matter.  Obama also harbored a resentment of America; and a negative or skeptical evaluation of the spirit and values of America. Obama (as an American Mr. Hyde) had an additional, unstated, agenda. That agenda is to punish, to take revenge for the “fact” that the spirit and values of America were to him “fiction”.

This tragedy is one of great pain and harm – but this time, not only to Obama,  but to America and to the American People.  And so we also come to the supreme irony:  Obama, entered and lives in our American Promised Land, but exiles himself with this resentment of America from communing with the Promised Land – an American Moses who has exiled himself from America.  An American Tragedy.

THE NEW “OPIUM” TRADE – CHINA’S REVENGE: THEIR “OPIUM WARS” AGAINST THE WEST !

Ah, the old opium trade: when the West got what it wanted by paying for it with opium at the cost of the Chinese population.  Well, the West reformed.  But it has done no good against a China with long memory and refusal to forgive.

History repeats itself in a new Chinese “opium” trade – but in bitter irony – in reverse !  A reformed and repentant West is now the despised recipient of China’s revenge.

In further irony, America, richest country in the world, has become effectively capital poor  and so allowed itself to become “addicted” and thereby controlled by China’s “opium” trade of cheap goods and shiny electronic trinkets!  It is because of this that we take the cheap goods – even though they are actually more expensive in the long run !

(Huh? you ask.  Go to Home Depot; buy a Chinese outdoor light fixture  – ‘cuz it’s cheaper. Handyman installs it; but made of plastic with no UV resin; it quickly becomes brittle in sunlight and breaks; handyman removes it; goes to Home Depot to replace; then re-installs. This repeats itself. Factor in all these costs – it’s far more expensive over time than buying a properly made (American) one – which (if you only had the capital) while more expensive to begin with is cheaper in the long run.)

But remember, the Chinese do not want our trinkets in return.  This time in exchange China is extracting the West’s wealth and jobs. But it is apparent that China is not satisfied with just impoverishing our middle class.  Instead China wants its pound of flesh as interest on its payback.

(Huh? you ask.  We get adulterated baby formula with melamine chemical instead of protein; adulterated toothpaste; adulterated pet food that destroys their kidneys.  African countries get rice made out of plastic!  And south Asian countries get meth labs and precursor chemicals in a literal “opium” trade.  And none of this could happen without the wink and nod (or payoff) of the Chinese Communist party or government.)

It was bad for them then; it’s bad for us now.  So, isn’t it about time we controlled this Chinese “Opium” Trade in reverse?

OBAMA HAS MET HIS WATERLOO: AND FIELD MARSHALL OBAMA’S STALINGRAD IS ALEPPO. SYRIA HAS SECURED HIS PLACE IN HISTORY AS: THE MAN WHO LOST THE MIDDLE EAST !

This election made Barack Obama the happiest man in America !

Huh, you ask?

Obama saw Trump as his “get out of jail” Free Card !  Everyone knows,including Obama, that his foreign “policy” got us in a world of trouble these past years.  And Obama has used every rhetorical trick in his quiver to shove the responsibility for his mistakes onto Trump.

However not even as a lame duck could Obama outrun the avalanche of disasters he’s mid-wifed.  And so the fall of Aleppo is Obama’s Stalingrad – the turning point where the whole world recognizes the absolute disaster of two terms of Obama’s foreign policy and the ultimate defeat of America’s power and influence in the world.

Obama continues to refuse to take blame on himself and shove blame onto Trump.  e.g., “ Mr. New President –  stand up to Russia !”

DEMOCRATS’ “NON-DENIAL DENIAL”: THEIR OWN WORDS DAMNED THEM IN THE EYES OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. SO, WHAT’S BAD IS THE RUSSIAN EXPOSER; BUT NOT THE BAD DEMOCRATIC ACTORS?

This all reminds us of the non-denial denial in All the President’s Men.  No wonder the American People voted for Trump.

This is the Democrats’ Watergate:  “All non-denial denials. We’re dirty, guys, and they doubt we were ever virgins, but they don’t say the story is inaccurate.”  Isn’t it really the case that the Democratic partisans own words damned themselves? And equally importantly isn’t it telling that none of them ever denied the authenticity and the content of the leaked emails?

So remember what is sauce for the goose is  equally sauce for the gander. There’s no difference between taking without permission and exposing and hacking (without permission) and exposing.  What was once OK in the Pentagon Papers should be OK here. What was OK in the Panama Papers should be OK here.

It was valuable for the American People to know about the conduct of a war.  It was valuable for the people of the world to know how their laws and governments tolerate tax cheating, but only by the rich and powerful. Why should it be different here for the American People to know about how Democrat politicians and operatives own words damn them as they cheat and connive?

Exposing behavior when it suits Democrats’ purposes is ok sauce for their gander, but heaven forbid it exposes bad Democrats’ behavior, then that’s bad and Republicans must be a cooked goose.   Politicians’ hypocrisy is bad enough to make you want to throw up – all over them.

OBAMA SLAPS TRUMP – TO “RETALIATE” AGAINST RUSSIA ! OBAMA’S THREE STOOGES STRATEGY FOR A “SMOOTH TRANSITION”

Obama promises a “smooth transition”.  How does he accomplish it ?  Well, by sneaking up behind Trump and biting him in the butt.  “Sanctions” – what a joke. Why even the German press recognizes it for what it is:  “a poisoned good-bye present” for Trump (Der Spiegel) !

Obama’s “sanctions” against Russia are no sanctions at all. They are purely designed to put Trump in the “hot seat” and have him then respond to them and or remove them.  And then give the Democrats and their media minions something to carp about to the American public to try and win the next election.

Churchill was asked and he laughed, crying:  “Never in the field of human conflict – have so many Americans lost so much international power and prestige by just one president.”

ELECTION SOUR GRAPES

You can gauge the potential importance of Trump’s win by the sour grapes being spit out– it seems – by everyone, not just the losing elites in the U.S., but scared elites throughout the world.

You always expect grumbling by the losers, but the venomous “the sky is falling, the sky is falling” reminds in another context of the biblical proportions of the fear felt by the elites.

To parapharase James (4:1-3):

‘What is causing now the fights and quarrels among us?  Don’t they come from the political elites’ selfish desires at war within themselves?

‘They want to keep the power and privileges they have, so they first schemed and lied to get it in the election; and then now to keep what’s left of it.  They covet power but now can no longer obtain it from the American People, so rather than accept the will of the American People, they quarrel and fight to take the power we granted Trump away from us.  They don’t have what they want, because they didn’t really ask the American People but demanded it. And now, not content with the outcome, they try to take it from us by inducing fear and loathing.

‘ And even when they went through the motion of asking the American People to give them power, they didn’t get it, because the American People finally realized that their motives are all wrong – they only want power for what will give them pleasure and wealth; and not to use that power for the well-being of the American People.’

 

But the American People are not dumb.  We know that you are just trying to scare us and the rest of the world. You’re now crying wolf about every imaginable thing under the social and political sun, because you wish to scare us into allowing you to keep your wealth and privileges, and to scare us into allowing you to hog tie Trump, and then allowing you to return to power.

We’re not ‘deplorable’ – we’re ‘adorable’; we want the American Dream – for all.

We’re not ‘know nothings’ – we ‘know something’; that our government is a government of all the people; not just the privileged and political elite.

We’re not ‘populists’ – we’re ‘e pluribus unum’.
