Do you honestly 
CARE 
if President Trump referred 
to certain areas 
of the world 
as 
S-H-I-T
HOLES
?


If so why?

He didn't do it in an official public speech. IF he said it at all, it was in the confines of supposedly PRIVATE meeting.

People say things to their friends and family ALL THE TIME that they would NEVER say in an official Public Statement.


Why do YOU think this has caused 
such a furor? 



Do you think the 
ENEMEDIA-DRIVEN STINK 
is justified? 

IF SO, WHY?

A POINT WELL WORTH PONDERING:

prig is a believer in red tape; that is, he exalts the method above the work done. A prig, like the Pharisee, says: "God, I thank thee that I am not as other men are"—except that he often substitutes Self for God. A prig is one who works out his paltry accounts to the last farthing, while his millionaire neighbour lets accounts take care of themselves. A prig expects others to square themselves to his very inadequate measuring rod, and condemns them with confidence if they do not. A prig is wise beyond his years in all things that do not matter. A prig cracks nuts with a steamhammer: that is, calls in the first principles of morality to decide whether he may, or must, do something of as little importance as drinking a glass of beer. On the whole, one may, perhaps, say that all his different characteristics come from the combination, in varying proportions, of three things—the desire to do his duty, the belief that he knows better than other people, and blindness to the difference in value between different things.

      Trump Has His Enemies
      Dancing to His Tune with
      ‘Shithole Counties’ Comments


      American Thinker,

      by Thomas Lifson

      Do I really have to explain President Trump’s strategy in reportedly using a vulgar expression to describe countries from which he believes the United States is taking far too many immigrants? (snip)

      Trump has forced everyone whom he outraged to repeat the words he wants to sink in with the public. The entire chattering class is now repeating that Haiti and some African countries, El Salvador and other TPS abusers (changing a visa explicitly labeled “temporary” into a permanent one) are shitholes.

      The best example comes from Trump’s sworn enemy Jim Acosta, who repeated the vulgarism in its +++++

    3. Lifson's theory reminds me of a similar theory by Scott Adams:

      In addition to "throwing out a lot of chum" into the news cycle, which Adams says the president does quite well, his tweet makes you "think past the sale of genius by saying he's a very stable one."

      "In my opinion -- as an expert in this narrow field of writing short, effective sentences -- this, my friends, is genius," he declared. "What you're seeing is absolutely genius."


      Both are viable theories, but I've already made it clear I love the substance but hate the vulgar, childish style of our "Stable Genuis Shithole" President.

      Nairobi, Kenya - President Donald Trump’s vulgar insult of Africa was a puzzle for many foreign media organizations, which didn’t have a ready translation of his epithet for their readers or listeners. Their answers ranged from “dirty” to, well, dirtier. While meeting with senators on immigration, Trump had questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and “s***hole countries” in Africa, according to one participant (Snip) Japan’s wire service Kyodo News chose “kusottare,” which literally means “dripping with excrement.” The country’s no-nonsense national broadcaster NHK settled for “filthy,” . . .

      The Demolition President

      Posted December 28, 2017 in: #Trump

      President Trump has delivered on a number of promises for his base. But there was an impressive amount of breakage along the way. You might say he President Trump did as much demolition as he did construction. The press is doing a good job of telling us what he accomplished in 2017. But they keep leaving out all the stuff he broke that probably needed to be broken.

      I’ll fix that for you here.



      GOP – Trump broke the GOP and reconstructed it along his terms, successfully it seems.

      DNC – The DNC has no charismatic leader, no game plan, and little money.

      Clinton Dynasty – Done

      Bush Dynasty – Done

      Mainstream Media – The public learned that news coverage is based on bias as much as fact.

      NFL – Ratings down, attendance down.


      If President Trump were a large piece of construction equipment, which one would he be?

      FBI (leadership) – The FBI as a whole is still highly credible, but the leadership is not.

      Pundits – Nearly all the pundits were wrong about Trump’s nomination, election, and successful (by Republican standards) first year.

      Government Regulations – For good or bad, we have fewer regulations now.

      Hollywood – Big stars are alienating 40% of their potential audience whenever they take time off from groping.

      North Korea – They used to have a pathetic but functioning economy. That situation is changing rapidly.

      ISIS – Remember ISIS? They used to be a big deal.

      TPP – Pulled out

      Paris Climate Accord – Pulled out

      Reality – I told you in 2015 that candidate Trump would change more than politics. I told you he would change the way we saw reality. Do you remember when you thought the news reported facts and that human beings used those facts to make reasoned decisions?

      You probably don’t think that anymore, do you?


      I’m probably leaving out some stuff that got broken. It’s been a busy year.

  2. I hesitated even responding because it is clear, certainly to me, that the people of this nation are becoming more polarized, almost with each passing day.

    Eaqually evident is that people who support Trump seem to do so regardless of his words or actions, and, people who don't are equally as adamant in their position.

    Now, in answer to your questions. Yes and Yes.

    He is the president, he represents America to the world. Not is the characterisation unprofessional, it is undignified and below the Office of the President.

    It is justified IMNHO because I have heard from Trump's mouth in his own words, and observed actions by him that justifies "the stink" from the legitimate media.

    All I will add is this, in no way will this help or enhance Trump's character and stature in the eyes of thoughtful people. Time will tell.

      “Pay Trump bribes here,” “emoluments welcome” and “we are all responsible to stand up and end white supremacy” were also projected onto the building.

      Trump has faced intense backlash for calling Haiti, El Salvador and African nations “shithole countries” during an Oval Office meeting on immigration this week.

      If you think for a moment of the way you and I talk in private correspondence and on the phone as opposed to the way we try to communicate in more formal PUBLIC commentary, you should be able to see that it is not Mr. TRUMP who is at fault in this inane kerfuffle, but rather the ignoble, sons-of-a-bitches who TATTLED to te ENEMEDIA –– and apparently LIED with the primary object of trying to DAMAGE Mr Trump –– who deserves our wrath and abiding unyielding CONTEMPT.

However, I am old enough t have learned how to spot the dfference between GOOD MANNERS and blatant, manipulative, flint-hearted HYPOCRISY.

      It pains me considerably to be forced to see in myriad ways every day that few-if-any members of younger generations (and far too few emembers of my own these days) have even the faintest grasp of the meaning in what I've just said –– and what I try to communicate virtually every day both here and abroad.

But the whole point of the temporary status welcoming immigrants from these countries is based on their being real shitholes –– places so dangerous and dreadful that we won’t send refugees from them back to the countries because they’ll probably die, or worse.

    Trump has really done it now. He’s spoken candidly again, referring to several nations as “shithole” countries, according to media accounts.

    CNN is having a complete meltdown. Of course, if all of these countries are so wonderful, why is there such an outcry against sending aliens from those countries back home?

    Washington Examiner [DC],

    by Becket Adams

    President Trump is drawing much-deserved criticism for reportedly referring to Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African nations as “shithole countries” when he met with lawmakers this week to discuss immigration protections. The main thrust of the argument against the president’s remarks, which were reported first by the Washington Post and the New York Times, is not that he used naughty language, but that he suggested immigrants from poorer countries are somehow [inferior] to immigrants from wealthier, predominantly white countries.

  24. Brapfart "News" is wrong. It is not fake news that the President denigrated other nations in a vulgar manner while hosting a meeting in the White House.

    That is real news, and the fact that the deranged Trump-haters in the Infotainment Media Complex blared, blatted and echoed it 10,000 times like the hooting loonies and cawing boobies they are doesn't make it any less true.

    I agree that all the couch fainting and outrage on the left is their typical ornamental frippery and operatic fake Kabuki wailing, but it is effective in pushing their destructive, globalist agenda.

    I admire the radical truth telling of President Trump, and I hate the way he does it. He is stepping on his own dick.

    Having said that, the Democrats have no leverage in the DACA fight. If President Trump takes a shit on the whole thing and says "no deal," Dems will pay the price, not him.

    Does anyone seriously believe the Democrats will shut down the government over a "clean DACA bill?" They would pay a heavy price, and if the economy continues booming into this November, there will be no blue wave.

    But, thanks to Chamber of Commerce Republican, odds are we will get is a 21st century version of 1986 Simpson Mazzoli.

    The 800,000 "DACA people will turn into 8 million once the ink is dry, government-funded defense lawyers will be defending every gang banger from deportation and nothing will change.

    Democrats and Republics, by refusing to put sensible immigration policies in place, are hell-bent on turning this nation into a polyglot progressive shithole and my money says they get it done, perhaps in my lifetime.

    So, if the ship's going down anyway, why not have a singing baboon as president, slinging shit everywhere and amusing the masses?

    “The tale of two borders,” Graham continued. “Why is one a problem and the other is not?”

    “Because Canada is a place where people like to stay, they like Canada, we like Canada,” Graham said. “We love to have them visit, they want to go home, because it’s a nice place.”

    “The people coming across the southern border live in hellholes,” Graham said. “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 [into] America. We're just gonna have to create order out of chaos. So, you've gotta do something on the southern border you don't do on the northern border, but if you don't agree that the difference is jobs, then we just don't agree. 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."

Taking DELIGHT in the degradation and humliation of others is truly WICKED, –– unless we’re talking about HILLARY CLINTON, of course. };^)>

    2. In view of all the threatening problems we face I see concern overthe president's use of a vulgar pejorative expression as trivial and unworthy of serious consideration. You may not appreciate Mr. Trump’s STYLE, but I doubt if any person of good conscience and reasonable intelligence could be so unwise as to reject the tremendously admirable CONTENT of what he has accomplished so far, against insuperable odds, –– and what he would LIKE to accomplish if he could rid himself of the flesh-eating TERMITES that seek to devour him.

    3. We have no PROOF that the president actually used the term SHITHOLE Apparently Prick Dirtbin, –– himself a SHITHOLE of the first water ––, “tattled” this to the ENEMEDIA. Senators Tom Cotton and David Purude back up the president’s DENIAL that he used that particular term. If there is no verifiable VIDEO, we can never be sure one way or the other, but I prefer to back our president, and I believe all who purport to back the Trump Agenda OUGHT to take the president’s side on PRINCIPLE.

    4. It appalls me that any sincerely concerned, humane and intelligent person could allow himself to be LED AROUND by the NOSE in service to the truly wicked, nakedly partisan determination of the ENEMEDIA to LIE, CHEAT, STEAL and possibly KILL in their effort to UNSEAT our constructive, well-intentiined, remarkably effective president, and OVERTURN the results of a perfectly legitimate election.

Answer, of course, well they are all valedictorians and war heroes and way more impressive and way more American than you will ever be so shut up. That’s what we’re told. That’s what we are required to believe.

    "What if it’s not true? Last year the U.S. accepted 23,000 people from Haiti and 127,000 from Mexico.

  39. One metric for defining a shithole country:

    Cholera and Shitholes. Excerpt:

    In 2016, 38 countries reported a total of 132 121 cases. Cases were reported from all regions, including 17 countries in Africa, 12 in Asia, 4 in Europe, 4 in the Americas, and 1 in Oceania. Haiti, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Yemen, Somalia, and the United Republic of Tanzania accounted for 80% of all cases. Of cases reported globally, 54% were from Africa, 13% from Asia and 32% from Hispaniola. Imported cases were reported in 9 countries. Globally, however, the true number of cholera cases is known to be much higher. Cholera represents an estimated burden of 1.4 to 4.0 million cases, and 21 000 to 143 000 deaths per year worldwide. The trends and annual figures exclude many cases labeled “acute watery diarrhoea”, notably occurring in south-eastern and central Asia (e.g. in Bangladesh and Pakistan). However, during outbreaks, many countries report as cholera many cases of acute watery diarrheoa which are not due to Vibrio cholerae. The actual numbers of cholera cases are therefore known to differ from those reported. Differences can be explained by under-reporting due to fear of negative impact on travel and trade.

    This time next year, all those guffawing and slapping their knees at how funny our politically-incorrect President is could very well be whining and screaming that he was impeached for purely political reasons.

    I promise not to lecture or provide links meant to educate the ignorant.

    1. We have a profound disagreement on this issue, Silver. I'm afraid we shall just have to acknowledge our differences with thesad realization they could never be resolved harmoniously,

      I am not as "intellectual" as you. I admit to being "A Slave to Passion."

      Approaching matters of vital concern to security, and prosperity jewdiciously with a high degree of "sangue froid" is just not my style.

      I hope I may be forgiven for my frankness.

    2. There is nothing to forgive, old friend.

      You have made many excellent points in this post and in the comment thread.

      Durban is a weaselly shitbag for touching off this firestorm, and he did it for a reason: The Democrats don't have a leg to stand on in the immigration debate.

      President Trump has made it clear he wants a path to keep the DACA people here, but then that removes them as pawns/victims the DemonCraps can manipulate.

      The sticking point is all the other sensible items Team Trump is insisting on: No more Immigration Lotto, No more chain migration, worker verification, secure border.

      The DemonCraps are really going to shut down the government to oppose such a bargain?

      The American People want law-abiding DACA immigrants to stay, but they also want all the stuff President Trump is demanding, and that puts the Democrats in a very bad position, so the did the equivalent of flipping over the checker board.

      Nothing intellectual about any of that.

    3. THANK YOU.

      I admit to having become hyper-sensitized to the tidal waves of disingenuous negativity that pound away at the president all day every day.

      I feel it my patriotic DUTY to do whatever I can to COUNTERACT those morbd, vicious, unprincipled, utterly cynical, politically-motivated attacks.


      When anyone –– even dear old and tgrusted friends of longstanding –– appears to PILE ON along with the ENEMEDIA, I see RED, and –– like El Toro –– respond almost reflexively.

      Supportng the ENEMEDI'A AGENDA in any way, however small, is what I mean when I accuse someione of "being led around by the nose."

      Even if –– like the proverbial broken clock –– the ENEMEDIA occasionally gets something right, I STILL refuse to go along with them, because I believe –– with all my eart and soul and mind –– that THEY have long ago dedicated themselves to serving The Forces of Darkness ––– yes SATAN –– I will not equivocate.

      EXTREME? You bet! So, I'll quote Lord Acton yet again:

      "EXTREMISM IN DEFENSE OF LIBERTY IS NO VICE."

      "MODERATION IN WAR IS IMBECILITY."


      And make no mistake about it we ARE engaged in a WAR to preserve the very SOUL of our nation. IF we lose to The Forces of Darkness, we –– both as a people, and as a force for good in the world –– will PERISH, then VANISH from the Face of the Earth, and be cinsigned to PERDITION.

      People don't talk in such vivid, grandiose terms anymore, but our Founding Fathers DID,and fvors them and all who have sought to follow them with sincerity I have genuine REVERENCE.

    Confirmed: Trump Is, Indeed, a Very Stable Genius

    American Thinker, by William L. Gensert

    By now, everyone has heard about President Donald Trump´s tweet countering accusations made by the Wolff in sheep´s clothing, who wrote a book detailing the supposed Shakespearian machinations that Wolff asserts are consuming the Trump White House.

    In his tweet, President Trump claimed he is, in fact, a "very stable genius."Throughout the media world, this made journalists´ heads explode.

    Dilbert creator Scott Adams points out the genius of this move by reminding people that liberals will forever mock Trump for it and that it is not a bad thing for Trump to have his name and "genius" associated with each ...

    The Real Reason Democrats are
    Throwing Such a Fit about 'Shithole
    Countries'


    American Thinker, by John Dietrich

    The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday."

    Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "shitholes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations.

    Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he ***

    Did Trump Say Anything that Isn't True?

    Arutz Sheva [Israel],

    by Jack Engelhard

    Did Trump misspeak…use a slur to make a point…and thereby arouse all those dainty Liberals into a snit?

    Not far from where I’m writing this, the kosher butcher shop is long gone; across the street, the church that once stood tall is now boarded up. But next to it stands a mosque newly built and freshly painted.

    English in the neighborhood is a foreign tongue and nobody knows Frank Sinatra. T

    he boys don’t play stickball. The girls in their veils don’t play hopscotch and all the cabs are driven by men from Somalia and Afghanistan.

    Strangers are not greeted warmly. That’s a snapshot of what . . .

    Georgia Senator Now Says Trump ´Did Not Use That Word'

    Yahoo News, by Michael Walsh

    A senator who attended the closed-door meeting during which the president reportedly insulted Haiti and various African nations with an expletive now says Trump never said the word.

    Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., who supports Trump’s immigration policies, had previously claimed that he did not recall whether or not Trump used this incendiary language. (Snip)

    “I’m saying that this is a gross misrepresentation. It’s not the first time Sen. Durbin has done it. And it is not productive to solving the problem,” Perdue said.

    The plan to delegitimize & disrupt Trump continues from the Rats, while RINOs and Never Trumpers carry their water ... and the media chimes in (even FOX) for an unending litany of 24/7/365 criticism.

    The Rats´ intent to swamp America with "refugees" & "migrants" continues apace, for future Rat votes, IF republicans allow it.

    Watching the Durbins, Waters and Schumers go through their motions of resistance reminds us a bit of Jimmy Stewart in "Mr Smith Goes to Washington" where he had to deal with THAT shithole cesspool filled with snakes and corrupt, greedy fools.

    It´s much worse today with the Rats aspiring to dynastic power. Rats will do anything to bring non-elitist Trump down.

    PS: I have not heard the Democrats whisper a word of concern about Americans since the days of John Kennedy.

    This is the last week of the first year of PDT's MAGA presidency. Dims are lost in sputtering derangement mode and the Enemedia´s daily brainsplosions long ago lost all contact with the hinges... so everything is going well and looking up!

    The faux outrage is a strategy to derail any meaningful change to our immigration policies and the vile democrats believe they have a winning strategy by calling the President a racist.

    Unfortunately, the Republicans are too cowardly to make them defend their anti-American immigration policies.

    The moral courage and determination shown by Republicans to put the democrats on defense is sorely lacking.

    They are cowards who will collapse into the fetal position anytime race is brought into the debate.

    Grow a backbone and defend the country! The democrats are on the wrong side of this issue, and if they are allowed to win this debate, the Republicans will lose it all.

    Stand up to these bullies or the country goes the way of Europe.

    I´m more inclined to think libtards are having a fit because it exposes states that are libtard run as high tax, high regulations, high mommy dictates for the hell holes they are.

    Why do you think it´s the libtard run states like CA, NY, NJ, IL, MA, CT are the big winners when it comes to people moving out?

    The bonus to the rest of the nation is the hope that these states lose some more House seats, which is why we get the stupid federal laws and excessive wasteful spending that we do.

    Officially, each day’s for celebration
    Not complaints or tearful lamentation.
    It’s tempting to succumb to fretfulness
    Negators can’t can’t enjoy forgetfulness ––
    Deny their overeager plaintiveness
    Erupting fulsomely with put on saintliness ––
    Pouting as though martyred for a Cause, when
    Everyone knows they only crave applause. When
    Needing to be noticed takes the Stage,
    Disingenuousness will soon take over.
    Ego run amok expresses rage ––
    Needling challengers’ interest and invention,
    Creating tension, refusing to engage,
    Endowing Honesty with bad intention.
    Doubts about oneself make fields of clover
    A potent allergen, which should one mention,
    Yields fits of pique that well define our Age.
