    Freezing these assets was doubtless part of the negotiations ahead of the agreement yesterday.

    I'd like to see those financiers exposed, especially those in the U.S.

    (I suspect a fair amount of the U.S. money is from expatriates looking to help relatives or countrymen get here.)


    You're telling me Trump's wacky theory is partially correct?

    Trump's so-called "whacky theory" is undeniably correct and supported by lots of facts.

    Leftists have been funding these "caravans" from the start. Prior to that, Leftists were funding the effort to get people to storm the border with the Obama administration's blessing, which is also undeniable.
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    Freedom of speech, in this country, under this constitution, does not mean that a private web site can't ban anybody they feel like banning.

    So, the whole of the concept of freedom of speech is confined solely within the bounds of the First Amendment, then? It's utterly impossible for there to be a concept of freedom of speech outside of the First Amendment?

    One, maybe. Not two.

    “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” —Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff, explaining the Green New Deal for the hard of hearing.

    "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." —CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    Sure. There could alternate concepts of the right to bear arms, too, unconnected to the second amendment. But when the chief executive of the federal government mentions the right to bear arms in a public pronouncement on a platform that he uses for official statements, the assumption is that he's referring to the government's codified concept of it. If he's referring to some personal code, he should use a different name for it, or make it clear that he's not referring to the official government concept.

    And if he's referring to some personal code, why would he think it would sway a for-profit corporation? A for-profit corporation exists to maximize profit, full stop. They are constrained by law in their quest for profit. They are not constrained by the personal code of a philanderer.

    Trump sweetened up his Mexico deal with a secret part.

    Trump’s secret deal with Mexico was news to them

    President Trump announced Monday that his administration has inked a secret agreement with Mexico on immigration enforcement that will be unveiled in the “not too distant future.”

    But the revelation stumped Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard, who said he wasn’t aware of any such deal.

    “We have fully signed and documented another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico, one that the U.S. has been asking about getting for many years,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

    “It will be revealed in the not too distant future and will need a vote by Mexico’s Legislative body!”

    But Trump warned that if there is a problem and the “approval is not forthcoming,” tariffs against Mexican imports will be *imposed.

    The Trump administration has been prodding Mexico to enter into a “safe third country” agreement, which would deem Mexico a safe place for migrants and make it more difficult for migrants from Central America to pass through the country and claim asylum at the US border.

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
