Sometimes it really is a sh*thole

How would you describe this picture?

Once again Donald Trump is under fire for being Donald Trump. Trump made the mistake of believing that a private meeting with democrats would remain private. Dick Durbin, the loathsome lefty Senator from Illinois, emerged from the meeting on immigration reform and asserted that Donald Trump had made a number of interesting remarks. In its usual haste to pound Trump, the media seized upon and circulated them without scrutiny in order to exact the maximum amount of damage on Trump and misrepresented much of what he said. The language was more colorful but it was not a departure from past expressions.



BTW, Trump did not call Haiti a sh*thole country.

This all comes in the aftermath of Trump discontinuing the Temporary Protection Status program for a number of countries.

 Last week, the Trump administration announced that they would not renew “Temporary Protected Status” (TPS) for nearly 200,000 Salvadorans residing in America, meaning that those individuals would need to leave the country by 2019, or face deportation. The administration had already decided in December not to renew TPS for about 60,000 Haitians and Nicaraguans, and may soon announce an end to TPS for 57,000 Hondurans.

Many countries in Africa are sh*tholes. Thing is, Trump is not alone that belief.

Huffington Post: The 10 Worst Countries For Human Rights

In its 2014 Human Rights Risk Atlas, global analytics firm Maplecroft revealed that in the past six years, the number of countries with an “extreme risk” of human rights offenses has risen dramatically.

Evaluating 197 countries on various human rights violations, Maplecroft classified 20 countries as having an extreme human rights risk in 2008. That number has since risen to 34. Of the countries with a high risk of violations, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Mali and Guinea-Bissau have seen the worst deterioration of their human rights situation, according to the report.

Geographically speaking, nations in the Middle East and North Africa account for the vast majority of the countries in the “extreme risk” category. With state repression of protests and widespread conflict, Syria ranks highest among the countries evaluated.

Several countries in sub-Saharan Africa also made the list of the top 10 worst offenders, primarily for ongoing ethnic conflicts and sexual violence.

However, state repression and violence are far from the only stimuli for human rights violations. In countries with emerging economies, for example, the potential for work-related offenses is growing.

VOA: 17 Countries Top List Of World’s Worst Human Rights Abusers

Seven African countries figure among the list of the world’s worst violators. Osman Hummaida, the executive director of the African Center for Justice and Peace Studies, is from northern Sudan. He lives in exile in Uganda.

Human Rights in Sub-Saharan Africa: Female Genitalia as National and Community Property

The violence directed at African women’s sex is shocking. Perhaps most familiar to the West are
the human rights atrocities such as ethnic rapes in Rwanda, women’s sexual enslavement in the wars
of Liberia and Ivory Coast during the 1990s, and the tactic of spreading HIV/AIDS through sexual
assault campaigns in Sierra Leone. From gang rapes to attacks so brutal as to leave girls permanently
disabled, African women are encountering levels of sexual violence relatively unprecedented in
modernity. In Sierra Leone, it is estimated that more than 72 percent of women and girls were
victims of wartime violence, 50 percent of that sexual in nature (Nowrojee 2005).
Rapes by alleged protectors reveal gaps in international mechanisms designed to shield wartime
populations from violence—there were several cases of sexual violence by peacekeepers with the
UN Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL). These included the rape of a twelve-year-old girl and the
gang rape of a woman by two Ukrainian soldiers. Peacekeepers with both the Economic Community
of West African States Monitoring Group (ECOMOG) and UNAMSIL sexually exploited
women—and solicited child prostitutes—during their “peacekeeping” missions.

If these aren’t sh*thole countries, then they do not need Temporary Protected Status and we do not need to allow them to immigrate here.

Speaking of sh*tshows- down the media memory hole went Barack Obama’s calling Libya a “sh*tshow.”

“So we actually executed this plan as well as I could have expected: We got a UN mandate, we built a coalition, it cost us $1 billion — which, when it comes to military operations, is very cheap. We averted large-scale civilian casualties, we prevented what almost surely would have been a prolonged and bloody civil conflict. And despite all that, Libya is a mess.

Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a “shit show,” in part because it’s subsequently become an ISIS haven — one that he has already targeted with air strikes. It became a shit show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.

No outrage.

Obama’s actions in Libya resulted in a thriving black slave trade there. Where’s the outrage for that?

And Lindsay Graham? Graham repeatedly repeatedly referred to nations south of the border as “hellholes.”  

“The people coming across the southern border live in hellholes. They don’t like that. They want to come here. Our problem is we can’t have everybody in the world who lives in a hellhole come to America,” Mr. Graham said during a 2013 debate in the Judiciary Committee on an immigration bill he co-authored.

The senator continued: “There are 11 million people coming through the southern border ‘cause they come from countries where they can’t find work, and life is miserable. So it seems to me that if you can control who gets a job you’ve gone a long way in controlling illegal immigration. Because as long as the jobs are available in America you can’t build a fence high enough to stop people.”

No outrage. Why?

Because not Donald Trump.

Neither Stephen Colbert nor any other left wing mouthpiece was critical of obama for his comments or for the dreadful legacy he created for Libya. Why?

Because democrats.

Hillary Clinton had to weigh in on the Trump comments. The Clinton’s screwed up post-earthquake Haiti and friends and family managed to score following Clinton efforts there. No real outrage. No late night snark. Why?

Because Clinton’s. Because democrats.

This will blow over soon. It’s one more desperate effort to bash Trump and cripple his Presidency. Collusion, obstruction and dementia have all failed to stick. The race card is old and tattered from its overuse but it’s always one democrats are quick to whip out. It won’t work either. People understand that there are a lot sh*thole countries in the world. Here is an article from the African Exponent which lists the top ten reasons Africa is still poor. The top two reasons?

  • Civil wars and terrorism
  • The Unending Corruption

Time to get real. It’s the denial of the truth that allows this to continue, i.e. democrats. The best remedy is not for everyone to leave, it is foster change from within.

Did I forget to mention Female Genital Mutilation?

This was a genius move by Trump. democrats are now scrambling to condemn Trump’s comments that those countries are sh*tholes and they have fallen into  a trap. If these countries are not sh*tholes their citizens do not require protection status and their immigration to the US is unnecessary. democrats are in no position to argue otherwise.

@rich wheeler: Lets see Trump is a racist stupid fool. Yet after a year Mueller and his team of high priced lawyers can’t find a thing related to Trump and election tampering connected to Russia. So either Trump is a genius (which that can’t be true according to the left) or this whole thing is just about politics.

My comment is still in moderation limbo since 8 pm last night WTH

Just because what Trump says and does is a contradiction of your propaganda does not make him a liar. You have supported nothing but liars, so I doubt you have a clear impression of what honesty actually is.

President Trump has made 1,628 false or misleading claims over 298 days

There are endless examples of Trump repeatedly saying things that simply and demonstrably are not true. They’re not a contradiction of “my propaganda.” They contradict establish, unambiguous facts.

What do you call people who constantly and intentionally do this?

@Greg:

What do you call people who constantly and intentionally do this?

Politicians
ding ding ding you win a car! Thats right cash for clunkers to drive to the Doctor you get to keep and use the health insurance you like and get to keep.

@Greg: He still has a way to go to catch up to Obama. The master at being a liar. But his lies are fine with you. I guess you can’t hear them from your position down low kissing his rear end.

@Mully: Woukdn’t it be interesting the separation of misleading statements and lies and see how many of each, then the misleading or outright lies the MSM has made. If only we could add the silence of the lambs on good news they cant report.
The Obama made quite a statement this last week saying you live in 2 realities depending on what news feed you listen to, aint that the truth.

@Mully, #55:

He still has a way to go to catch up to Obama.

Here’s a little experiment: Start down the the list of Trump’s 1,628 documented false or misleading claims and and match them one-for-one with those you can find on Obama’s part. Let me know which list runs out first. To give Trump an advantage, any particular lie he’s told many times only needs to be counted once.

Like Trump, his followers just assert things that, on reflection, are totally unsupported by evidence. The quoted statement up above would be one example. It isn’t true.

@Greg:

President Trump has made 1,628 false or misleading claims over 298 days

Would you like to compare lists? I’ve see yours and it is comprised mostly of some damned lying liberal’s opinion of what the “truth” is and, as we all know and have seen, liberals have no sense of or respect for the truth.

@Greg: Sure but lets not start with the Wapo as a reference. Try something a bit less extreme left.

So you do acknowledge Obama is a liar. Maybe the is a glimmer of hope for you.

@Bill… Deplorable Me, #58:

How would anyone make a item for item comparison when your list doesn’t even consist of statements that Obama made?

Are you having some trouble finding actual examples of Obama’s false statements? Why would that be? In Trump’s case, specific documented examples turn up multiple times daily. Trump makes Obama look like a Boy Scout. Trump makes George W Bush look like a Boy Scout.

@Greg: Here’s a quick 2 minutes. This guy is fast.

@Greg: You should take another look at the list, preferably while you can still edit your post. Then you can make yourself look less ignorant.

@Kitt: Actually, and more specifically, what you call people who continuously do that is “liberals”.

@Bill… Deplorable Me: Its politicians wheres the repeal bill? They didnt think Trump was going to win either.

@Mully, #61:

Seven down and only 1,621 to go…though I could argue that accurately paraphrasing someone in the context of a speech isn’t really a lie. Louis D. Brandeis:

“Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.”

@Greg: Your list from the WaPo just isn’t up to muster. Sorry you’ll have to do better. That paper lies for starters.

Again nice to see you acknowledge Obama is a LIAR. It’s not the quantity it’s the quality.

Shall we start on the lies of HRC? She learned from the best.

@Mully:

Shall we start on the lies of HRC? She learned from the best.

Dang, that would take an entire server dedicated to that to prevent it from crashing. Yet, Greg and other liberals choose to ignore her lies and obsess about campaign promises Trump has made but has not yet had the chance to fulfill.

It is a “shithouse”, Medical Malpractice.
But I wonder why the supposedly nonPC president won’t man up and admit what he said.
Doesn’t have the balls?

So, if the president didn’t call the places shitholes or shithouses, as he claims, does that mean they aren’t.

The pain from the lobotomy to be a Trump supporter must be immense.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

”While the debate might rage on as to what constitutes a “shithole” of a country, one thing is not up for debate: the American city of San Francisco is a shithole.

We know this thanks to an interactive map created in 2014 called Human Wasteland.

The map charts all of the locations for human excrement “incidents” reported to the San Francisco police during a given month. The interactive map shows precise locations of the incidents by marking them with poop emojis:”

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/15/san-francisco-defecation-map/

But, at least we can be comforted in the fact that SF is a shining exemplar of liberal thought and action, and voted overwhelmingly for Hillary.

Let that sink in for a while…

@Jay: A city of liberal culture.

Summer before last, my wife and I spent a week in San Antonio, staying in a hotel downtown and spending the days walking about the city (except for the day we drove along the “Mission Trail” to tour the other Spanish missions besides the Alamo). The smell of urine at every alley and most doorways was overwhelming. When the wait was too long for breakfast at an IHOP, the McDonald’s we stopped at had to have a buzzer lock on the bathrooms to keep the homeless from occupying them.

San Antonio is a sanctuary city.

Why liberals allow this to happen to their home places is beyond me. I suppose they have given up ever winning an election on superior ideas and benefits for the American citizen.

So many ‘Trump is a racist’ claims…

Interesting to do an internet search through Google and then follow it up with a site like DuckDuckGo and see how Google apparently can’t find articles with anything non-negative to say about Trump that other search engines seem to find quite easily.

Apologies for the length, but given the frequency and stridency of the ‘racist’ claim, more facts are better, even if I’m fairly certain no amount of facts will change the ‘reality’ they choose to live in.

”According to… , President Trump is as racist as they come. There’s no proof of this racism, but they are confident in their assessments. Which is weird, because when Trump was a private citizen and used his billions to help black communities, he earned multiple rounds of applause.

Back in 1998 and 1999, Trump worked with Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH coalition to help offer a way to get blacks into corporate America and improve their communities through building projects and jobs. Jackson called on Trump’s savvy business aplomb not once, but twice.

Jackson also applauded Trump’s “will to make things better” for the “underserved communities.” In addition, Jackson thanked Trump for meeting with him in 1984 and in 1988 when he ran for president at a time when the United States would’ve found the idea of a black president “laughable.”

When Trump got up to speak at that event, he praised the skilled workmanship of blacks and other minorities.”

But in 2017, President Trump is the worst human being on the planet and has “no moral foundation,” as Rev. Jackson recently stated

https://www.truthrevolt.org/news/flashback-jesse-jackson-praised-trumps-work-behalf-minorities

Expediency of the moment for the Reverend Jackson, I guess.

“Florida Lawsuit Reveals What Trump Thinks About Discrimination

President Donald Trump and his supporters were frequently accused of racism throughout the 2016 presidential campaign and since.

…an incident in Trump’s history has resurfaced that may call into question his alleged racism and discrimination.

In 1997, Trump defied societal conventions when he purchased his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, and converted it into a private club. Prior to Trump’s arrival, other clubs in the Pam Beach area “had long barred Jews and African Americans — which is to say they practiced a quiet but steely racism,” wrote Jeffrey Lord for The American Spectator.

Trump {asked} the town council to lift the existing restrictions on the club, and sent them a copy of “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner,” a film whose characters defy the race-based discrimination of the day.

The town council would not budge, leading Trump to file a $100 million lawsuit alleging the town was “discriminating against Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African Americans,”…

The incident was profiled in a 1997 Wall Street Journal piece that discussed Trump’s clash with Palm Beach. Eventually, Palm Beach put an end to its discriminatory restrictions.

“In other words, long before he was running for president, there was Donald Trump battling racism and anti-Semitism in Palm Beach society. Using every tool at his disposal,” Lord wrote. Lord said Trump’s actions showed the falsehood in the accusations of racism leveled against him.

https://www.westernjournalism.com/florida-lawsuit-reveals-what-trump-thinks-about-discrimination/

Awww, snap. That doesn’t fit the narrative.

“Meanwhile, Trump also asserted the rights of African Americans in his hometown of New York City. In 1986, the NAACP had been forced to leave New York…despite having had their headquarters in New York for 77 years, the NAACP could no longer afford to operate in New York… Mayor Ed Koch {a lifelong Democrat} had made an insufficient offer of assistance to help the civil rights organization stay in New York, so it moved to Baltimore.

Still, they decided to hold their 78th Annual Convention in the New York. Consequently, Donald Trump took the initiative of helping the NAACP by hosting a pre-convention party and by agreeing to speak at the convention. Trump defended this premiere organization of African Americans, saying: “The NAACP should have a place in the greatest city in the world. But it’s the same old story: Because of this administration, organizations are forced to leave New York…”

At the event itself, the executive director of the NAACP complained that New York City still suffered of “a dark side of hatred, bitterness and intolerance.” Yet Trump, at least, was among the supporters of the NAACP. He was named chairman of the New York Citizens Committee for the NAACP convention.

Meanwhile, since the 1980s, an organization that Jesse Jackson founded and still chaired, Operation PUSH, carried out boycotts of businesses to pressure them to provide more job opportunities and housing for black people. In 1996, Jackson merged PUSH with another non-profit organization he had founded. The Rainbow/PUSH Coalition would continue to do activism on social justice and civil rights.

To help, Donald Trump agreed to give office space in The Trump Building at 40 Wall Street, free of charge, so that Jesse Jackson could have a prominent position from which to pressure corporations to hire and promote African Americans. This central location was across the street from the New York Stock Exchange. At the time, Wall Street was occupied mostly by white people, with nearly no African Americans. As reported by the New York Times, “Jackson said his new office would seek to cajole, persuade and pressure American companies to hire and promote more blacks and members of other minorities, name more of them to corporate boards and award more business to companies owned by members of minorities.”

The New York Times noted that “Donald J. Trump received an ovation when he announced that he would donate office space to Mr. Jackson’s civil rights group, the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, in 40 Wall Street,” which Trump had bought and renovated.

Back then, Trump’s generous welcome for Jesse Jackson’s affirmative action push in business was a precious rarity.

In January 1998, at the NYSE and at the top of the World Trade Center, Jesse Jackson hosted a lavish three day forum for the advancement of minorities and women in business. The event included President Bill Clinton, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan, the Secretary of the Treasury, and others. At a panel, Jackson addressed Donald Trump in “this family of friends” and asked for his advice on urban development.

Trump spoke hopefully about a growing “Renaissance” in uptown New York, and Harlem in particular…He insisted that “Harlem needs more help than does 5th Avenue.” He suggested greater business incentives and City investments north of 125th Street.

Later, Jesse Jackson thanked Donald Trump: “I do want to express thanks to you, Donald Trump, for being with us tonight. We need your building skills, your gusto, your rent package for people on Wall Street [for Rainbow/PUSH] to represent diversity, and we thank you for coming tonight, let’s give Donald Trump a big hand. A big hand for Donald Trump!”

The following year, in 1999, Jesse Jackson again headed a major conference for the advancement of minorities in business. And he praised Donald Trump…

Trump spoke about his new construction projects: 18 new residential buildings with 10 million square feet, and, the tallest residential building in the world: a 90 story tower across from the United Nations, and the award-winning Trump International Hotel. Then he emphasized: “I will tell you, a large percentage of the people, and especially in construction, that are building these great [construction] jobs, are black and minorities. And I’m very proud of it. We have close to 25%, and I think the number is going up, and they do a great job. There are no better builders than we have in New York, and big percentage of that is black and minority folks.”

Yeah, that’s some pretty harsh supremacist rhetoric right there!

Oh, and since David Duke and the KKK were raised (again…)

”Later that year, in 1999, Donald Trump was forming an exploratory committee to consider running in the Reform Party for the nomination of President of the United States. Their previous candidate for President had been the wealthy businessman Ross Perot…

However, in early 2000, Trump abruptly abandoned his consideration of running for President; he explained that it was because David Duke, “a bigot, a racist, a problem” had suddenly joined the Reform Party, so Trump decided to immediately leave the party in protest, as did others such as the Jesse Ventura, the Governor of Minnesota.

Trump issued a statement in the New York Times: “The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani,” he said in his statement. “This is not company I wish to keep.”

http://www.newstandardpress.com/the-donald-and-the-blacks/

Hmmm. Doesn’t sound much to me like he has much use for the KKK.

The last site actually has several draft chapters of an entire book dedicated to factual references that contradict the various and sundry lefty attacks on Trump.

@Jay: And since it seems to be a requirement for Trump to denounce the KKK and Duke regularly, I haven’t been hearing any Democrats denounce them lately. So, therefore, all Democrats and liberals support and back Duke and the KKK. Sorry… that’s THEIR rule, not mine.

@PhillipMarlowe:

But I wonder why the supposedly nonPC president won’t man up and admit what he said.
Doesn’t have the balls?

Since 4 of the 6 people in the meeting say he DIDN’T say it, the question is does Durbin have the balls to admit he lies in order to torpedo any bipartisan effort to solve a problem? HE’S obviously the liar.

You liberals are so reliably stupid.
