Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “Me golden idol is tarnished” edition

Well, this little Freeper went to market two Saturdays ago, after (of course) I had finished last Monday’s Obsession post, but it was too good to pass up, so here we go!

Trump delays planned ICE raids to see if Congress can solve border crisis
Fox News ^ | June 22, 2019 | Adam Shaw

Posted on 6/22/2019, 3:30:50 PM by Innovative

President Trump announced Saturday that a planned mass roundup of illegal immigrants by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is being delayed for two weeks, in the hope that a bipartisan solution to the border crisis can be reached.

“At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border,” he tweeted.

“If not, Deportations start!” he added.


He is being reasonable, but not giving up the plan.

That’s not innovative, it’s just shit-stupid.

I had guessed that his announcement of imminent roundups was a negotiating ploy with Congress. I am waiting to see what comes from his apparent vacillation on the Iran drone shootdown. He did NOT just “back down.” Something is in the works.

Of course something is in the works.   Possibly a monkey wrench.

No, reasonable would have been acting on his campaign promises on this issue from the start. Not naming three consecutive anti-Trumpers to run DHS against all his stated immigration goals. Declaring the emergency we have and doing what’s needed with his executive powers from the start. Not sticking his feckless, Manhattan Democrat SIL in to give still more to the Dems on the issue this winter. Etc. Etc.
Empty threats and promises while letting in more, kicking out fewer, workplace raiding fewer, etc., than Obama.

Enough already!

I can’t understand what’s keeping the 13th-dimensional chess brigade…
Maybe they’ll show up after the “read more”?

To: Innovative


DACA, he gave them what? 6 months? and nothing. Then what happened? Nothing.

Wall funding? Gave them time and nothing happened and at least we are seeing a work around.

Mexico trade threats, still waiting on that one to see what happens.

He is masterful at raising a ruckus and moving the goal posts with very little happening to show for it.

I was hopeful but skeptical on the deportation claims now I’m doubtful and disappointed.

Congress has proven time after time what they will do and that is more nothing. I hoped he would just get on with punishing unlawfulness. Won’t do it but why not?

He has kept his promise to the corn farmers about ethanol though. Big woop.

Yeah, I’m a detractor and critic. I don’t have the faith of a child and I don’t just keep giving someone more and more chances without saying a word of doubt. I’m from Missouri.

This is getting to be a pattern. First Mexico, then Iran, now Nancy and Chuck. Drastic, take-no-prisoners threat, followed by sit-down. Art of the Deal.

To: TexasTransplant

They’ve already all been identified on this issue.

And we shouldn’t run policy based on trumping up campaign issues.



Trump was elected to deal with this. Not elected to deal with it if we re-elect him too.

Trump’s election is turning out to have zero impact on the demographic transformation/destruction of our homeland. More third-world migrants will enter and remain in the USA under Trump than under any given four years of Obama. Don’t know exactly how to describe that, but it cannot remotely be described as success.

To: SanchoP


They are very stupid. Just like the Bushbots from the 9/11 era. Everything is a secret plan, or 3-d chess or Bush, I mean Trump “playing the Democrats masterfully”, when in reality it is WEAKNESS, and proof the left’s final victory is merely delayed. WE are going to have to water the Tree of Liberty, because Trump can not, apparently.

I’m definitely detecting a bit of disillusionment here.
Also, I can never read “water the tree of liberty” without someone taking a leak on it popping up in my mental Rolodex…
To: be-baw

Re: “Sounds like it was leaked. At least Tom Homan said it was.”Tom Homan was an Obama appointee.

Trump promoted him twice.

Now, Trump wants Tom Homan to be his “Immigration Czar.”

Total insanity.
