Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Cheeto Bandito edition

Oh dear.  In spite of Orange Julius’s economic advisers (the ones he hasn’t fired yet, anyway) telling him that this was just about as good an idea as pissing on an electric fence…

There’s a new tariff in town!

On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied,..

….at which time the Tariffs will be removed. Details from the White House to follow.

To: MeganC


You do realize that Mexico actually won’t pay he tariffs, right? China doesn’t pay the tariffs either. The American businesses that import the goods actually pay the tariffs. That’s how a tariff works. It’s not like a Mexican truck full of avocados is now going to get charged a 5% tax at the border. The importer pays that when it gets delivered and hen they pass that on to the store and they pass that on to you.

At present the U.S. is involved in a protracted trade war with China that has yielded nothing in concessions from Beijing, cost U.S. companies and consumers billionsobliterated $5 trillion from the stock market, and is threatening to tip the economy into a recession. At the White House, Donald Trump has learned the lessons of this failed strategy and decided to…drag the U.S. into another unwinnable trade war, this time with one of our neighbors and largest trading partner.
Yes, Tariff Man announced Thursday night that starting June 10, he will impose a 5 percent tariff on allMexican imports, a levy that will “gradually increase” all the way to 25 percent until undocumented immigrants stop crossing the border. Tariffs, of course, are usually used to counter trade violations as opposed to being a blunt instrument to deal with border security, but reason and logic have no place in this administration. If they did, someone would have likely been able to get it through Trump’s head that this move will badly damage the U.S. interests, a point that has thus far eluded him.

I hate to say it, but they may be right.



I’m afraid that everything President Trump accomplishes will be washed down the drain the next time a liberal is elected.

All of his hard work and great leadership will be erased.

I hate liberals.

Trump Celebrates LGBT Pride Month, Urges World to Decriminalize Homosexuality Breitbart ^ | 31 May 2019 | Joel B. Pollack Posted on 5/31/2019, 10:33:17 PM by KC_Lion

LGBTs for Trump (Evan Vucci / Associated Press)

President Donald Trump tweeted Friday in celebration of LGBT Pride Month, which begins in June, and repeated his administration’s call for the international community to decriminalize homosexuality in countries where it is illegal.

Trump has frequently been attacked by LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) activists on the left, particularly for his administration’s policies on transgenderism.

Trump has barred transgender individuals from serving in the military, and reversed Barack Obama’s policies encouraging public schools to provide for transgender bathrooms. His administration also recently insisted on sticking to a definition of sexual discrimination that refers to biological sex.

More broadly, however, President Trump has championed gay rights at home and abroad.

On the campaign trail in 2016, he was proud of his support from the LGBT community, emerging onstage at a rally in Colorado bearing a Pride flag with the words, “LGBT for Trump.”

I don’t agree with this, but I do know that Trump is virtually an Independent who’s not beholden to any wing or faction of the GOP. We knew who he is when we voted for him.
So I’ll just grit my teeth here.

Trump recognizes the huge personal benefit he has enjoyed owing to the decriminalization of adultery and other fornication. Those relatively recent changes have had a huge effect on our society.

North Korea executed envoy to US and officials after failed Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi
South China Morning Post ^ | 05/31/2019
Posted on 5/30/2019, 9:51:53 PM by SeekAndFind

North Korea executed Kim Hyok-chol, its special envoy to the United States, and foreign ministry officials who carried out working-level negotiations for the second US-North Korea summit in February, holding them responsible for its collapse, a South Korean newspaper reported on Friday.

Kim Yong-chol, a senior official who had been US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s counterpart in the run-up to the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Hanoi, is also said to have been subjected to forced labour and ideological education, the Chosun Ilbo reported.

The North Korean leader is believed to be carrying out a massive purge to divert attention away from internal turmoil and discontent, the newspaper said.

“Kim Hyok-chol was investigated and executed at Mirim Airport with four foreign ministry officials in March,” an unnamed North Korea source said, according to the Chosun Ilbo, adding that they were charged with spying for the United States.

Kim Hyok-chol had been the negotiations counterpart to US special representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun before the summit.

Kim Yong-chol was forced to work in Jagang Province after his dismissal, the source said, adding that Kim Song-hye, who carried out working-level negotiations with Kim Hyok-chol, was sent to a political prison camp, Chosun reported.

Roy Moore ‘seriously considering’ another Senate bid after 2017 failure
Washington Examiner ^ | 03-09-19 | Daniel Jativa
Posted on 3/9/2019, 9:34:10 AM by Monrose72

Roy Moore said he is “seriously considering” a 2020 rematch against the current incumbent Alabama senator. The fiery and controversial candidate, who became the first Republican to lose a U.S. Senate race in Alabama in 21 years for his defeat by now-Sen. Doug Jones, a Democrat, says that he is open to the idea of running for the GOP’s nomination again. “I’m seriously considering it. I think that was stolen,” Moore said of the race during a Friday interview.

OK — let’s go beyond that. I’m saying I would have voted for Roy Moore even if there was irrefutable evidence that he was a rapist.If he wasn’t a rapist, I’d vote for him on principle.

If he WAS a rapist, I’d vote for him because the U.S. Senate would be the perfect place for a guy like that.
