Good morning, all! As The Darnold’s presidency circles the toilet at ever-increasing speed, the Freepers are having more and more trouble simultaneously believing “all is well” and “Holy fucking shit, NOW what??” – with Trump being at the same time infallible and a total fuckup.
Call it “Schrodinger’s moron”.
Let’s start with – Glory Be!
North Korea airs film glorifying summit with Trump

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea’s state TV has aired a documentary glorifying leader Kim Jong Un’s recent visit to Vietnam that omitted the failed nuclear negotiations with President Donald Trump.
The footage’s release Wednesday came amid reports that North Korea is restoring some facilities at its long-range rocket launch site that it dismantled last year as part of disarmament steps.
This was doomed to fail even before it began and nine critical, wasted months have passed where they continued to build up their arsenal behind the scenes and de-facto loosened sanctions and continued their horrid human rights abuses.
They are not to be believed. Never. They are dishonest liars and cheats, despite all the optics, flattery, a pretty First Lady parading in European fashions and the like.
…but enough about Trump…
I’d like to hear the argument and see any credible evidence to the contrary.
There can be no doubt now.
To: 2ndDivisionVetNo doubt now what a hopeless farce this was and is becoming. I hope we will soon return to the Reagan Doctrine. https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/07/politics/carter-north-korea/index.html CNN: Congressman: Jimmy Carter is willing to travel to North Korea to help Trump
Trump Abandons ‘America First’ Reforms: ‘We Need’ More Immigration to Grow Business ProfitsBreitbart ^ | 3-6-19 | J. Binder

Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, President Trump is abandoning his prior “America First” legal immigration reforms to support increases of legal immigration levels in order to expand profits for businesses and corporations.
For the fourth time in about a month, Trump suggested increasing legal immigration levels. With Apple CEO Tim Cook sitting next to him at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said he not only wanted more legal immigration but that companies needed an expansion of new arrivals to grow their business.
“We’re going to have a lot of people coming into the country. We want a lot of people coming in. And we need it,” Trump said:**************************The comments are a direct rebuttal of the president’s commitments in 2015, 2016, and 2017, where he vowed to reduce overall legal immigration levels to boost the wages of U.S. workers and reduce the displacement of America’s working and middle class.
To: central_vaI’m still with him.
Things aren’t perfect, obviously, and along with all the winning, there’s been some losing.
Um – did you just call The Darnold a loser?
Donald Trump is the only fighter we have.
If he’s a “fighter”, isn’t he taking a dive about now?
Also, in the “unintentional irony” department :
There is literally no one else between us and an actual horde of literal Nazis.
Don’t give up.
To: BiggBobAnd with record low unemployment and continued job growth we may need more MERIT BASED legal immigrants?
Wow wages are up 3% barley keeping pace with inflation So we don’t need any more immigrants what we need are higher wages for all. The Republican Party is useless and dangerous even more so it seems than the Democrats.

H1B salary is set rather low in light of the fact that H1B workers are trapped in their jobs for several years (four I think?)
Or until they bring their wife or girlfriend over from their homeland, get her pregnant where she pops out a kid in a hospital near you or me. Instant citizen and he never has to leave because of family reunification. And then the whole family from their village in Pakistan or India comes. Then the buy a house and put it in their elderly parents name so they get a reduction in property taxes, all while 15 of them live in the same house.
The rest of the world makes a mockery of our country and our laws.
Michael Cohen’s testimony made 63% believe Trump committed a crime, giving fuel to impeachment efforts in the House. Mitch McConnell is abandoning Trump and the wall because of this; the Chamber of Commerce money is more important to lawmakers than what Americans want and need…..
President Trump on Friday morning said he felt “very badly” for Paul Manafort, but that he has not discussed a pardon for his former campaign manager, who was sentenced to 47 months in prison. “I feel very badly for Paul Manafort,” the president told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before departing on a trip to survey the tornado damage in Alabama. He said this “is a very, very tough time” for Manafort, 69, who still faces sentencing in a separate case next week in DC, where a judge could impose as much as 10 more years for conspiracy to obstruct justice and defraud the government.

North Korea rocket site is being monitored ‘in real time,’ U.S. official says
NBC News ^ | 08 Mar 2019 | Andrea Mitchell

The U.S. is “watching in real time” developments at a long-range rocket site that North Korea is believed to have rebuilt, a senior State Department official said Thursday.
The Sohae facility has been used in the past for satellite launches that employ similar technology to what is required to fire intercontinental ballistic missiles. It is now back to “normal operating status,” according to new commercial images and analysis from two teams of researchers…(snip)
…The State Department official said that while it is important for North Korea to act as it had promised, the U.S. side did not see Sohae as a “critical” part of Pyongyang’s missile program because such tests have most recently been from mobile launchers.
Not only at Sohae and at Kangson, but now Sanumdong just north of Pyongyang is recently proving problematic. They are just shifting these facilities around in a shell game, offering to give up others they leave as obsolete. Gotta hand it to the little buggers.
With some of it, remote heat sensing and visual satellite confirmation tends to show Kim was shifting these around and ramping up activity even as talks with the US were continuing. Stuff like this cannot happen without his sign off.
No surprise at all though. It was a known fact he was insincere from the outset. Many people just chose not to listen and got swept up in the confetti and general hoopla but I can’t half blame them I guess
