There seem to be more than a few fixated on Sweden and Alpha Centauri. They live there?

Don't answer. Alpha Centauri has credibility.

Le Pen will win. Things aren't as bad in the Netherlands as they are in France. At least not yet.

It is telling that Wilders is going finish second. He is probably the most extreme anti-Islam candidate to date.

He gained seats and his party gained political strength. The populist cause is advancing and as long as Le Pen does better than the last time all is good.

And last I heard his party gained seats in the Dutch government which in Europe is the key element of political power.

Wait I thought all the illegal migrants were here working their butts off doing jobs Americans just won't do. But then the Washington Post comes along with this little gem of a tweet:

http://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2017/...f-deportation/

What makes this story so interesting is how it addresses a couple of left wing issues:

* Apparently the Post is concerned that "immigrants" will go hungry for fear of deportation should they use food stamps. Hmmmmmm, I didn't know LEGAL immigrants can get deported for using food stamps since over half of them already do. So these must be ILLEGAL migrants. Looks like the Post forgot a VERY IMPORTANT detail in their headline.

* As for the headline. In addition to leaving out the fact that they are talking about "illegal" not "legal" migrants the Post thought the first headline was to inflammatory so changed it to make Trump look like the villain.

So according to the Washington Post it's okay for people to break the law and sneak into our country. Than break the law again by receiving welfare benefits. But the real problem in the Post's eyes is that Trump's increased enforcement of our existing immigration laws is making it harder for illegals to steal from the American tax payer.

As an aside, if I had my way ANY LEGAL immigrant who has to tap into our welfare system to get by within the first 10 years of their arrival to the USA should be deported. Why on earth would we allow immigration of folks who need food stamps? Yea I know, I'm a heartless bastard.

Of course this and other great story's can be found everyday at Instapundit:

You mean you "thought" that's what others were saying but it wasn't. You heard what you wanted to hear so you could create another poorly constructed strawman.

Is that not the existing Democratic immigration-policy platform?

I'm not sure you truly understand how revolutionary it was that he even got as much support as he got.

Season 4 of #HWNDU is underway. /pol/ has already found the flag on a rooftop in Liverpool, England.

They've clamped a cone of silence over their plan, but it looks like drones may be involved.

What's the old saying "when attacked punch back twice as hard"! Check out the awesome pictures at this link showing Trumpsters beating the tar out of low life protesters:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...alifornia.html

When thugs show up wearing masks to hide their identity and then pepper spray & taunt folks at a pro Trump rally they deserve everything they get. These pictures are PURE GOLD, if you have had it with violent left wing goons attacking people with impunity this will make your day!

If he keeps it up at this rate he'll need two terms to match what Obama did in his first term! Come on Mr. President you need to hit the links more.

Actually the guys that fought back against the thugs are winners in my book. You see the big difference between the two groups is that one group came out to participate in a scheduled pro Trump rally. They were decked out in American flags & "Make America Great" hats. Not one of them wearing a mask.

The other group came out wearing masks to hide their identity and started screaming obscenities and getting right up into the faces of the Trump supporters. Then the thugs started attacking the Trump supporters with pepper spray. Theses thugs were following the same pattern that the anti-Trump protesters had been following for the last year. But this time they ran into opposition.

So no, I don't see an equivalence between these two groups at all.

I really do not care how many times someone plays golf, it really matters what he does between rounds of golf that matters. From what has been reported Trump is up early and going hard late into the night, I never did hear a report of that nature when Obama was in office. Lets have this discussion again in a few months.

I'm glad we're finally seeing push back. People have a right to gather & express their views. They also have a right to be safe from thugs who want to shut down their free speech. And that includes defending themselves from left wing hooligans on the Soros pay role who try to use violence & intimidation to deny citizens their right to peacefully organize and protest.

Those look like masks, not facepaint, to me. You can even see the strings in this picture.

lotr said very specifically not one Trump supporter at the rally was wearing a mask. That's wrong. Sorry if pointing that out bothers you/him.

It looks like mostly a collection of losers on both sides based on the photos.

But yes, if it's correct that the anti-Trump protesters became aggressive/violent first, then they deserved a beating.

You know what he meant: masking themselves ala ANTIFA. You can find someone wearing a mask at just about any large gathering.

He said "not one" was wearing a mask when the link he provided showed multiple doing just that. A mask is intended to hide one's identity typically, so it's design or material seems inconsequential.

If he'd like to clarify his statement to a correct one then I'm sure we can find even more common ground.

I get that in the absence of a rational argument throwing out the "other side does it to" is a tactic. Or how playing "gotcha" is a wonderful deflection from talking about the real story. But like I said in my original post with all the great pictures, it's nice to see the victims of mindless violence fighting back!
