In the words of my friend, William, the whole discussion about Donald Trump’s comments about illegal immigrants is “Much Ado About Nothing.”
Noting, or as we say in more modern parlance “nothing,” is a process of acknowledging as relevant something that has no relevance. In our time we might use the phrase “getting caught up in the thick of thin things.” The main objective of “noting” is to create the appearance of relevance for some obscure reason, which is intentionally hid from readers or listeners. The secondary objective is to get people to “go along with” the first objective.
Regarding this second objective I believe that Paul said it best in his second epistle to Timothy with these words:
“…they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women [and men (sic)] laden with sins, led away with divers lusts.
Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
The media, which generally supports a socialist view of political issues, wants the world, and the American electorate in specific, to believe that Donald Trump said something outrageous. Silly political pandering men and women, like Jeb Bush, Rick Perry, Hillary Clinton, and Carly Fiorina in their lusts for influence grab onto the media philandering like a group of leaches at a sick vampire convention.
Rather than studying and learning the truth they are “ever learning about how to bend the truth to they personal desires.” I want to interject a story here about the father of one of my high school friends as it relates to “bending.”
This man was well learned in laboratory knowledge, but lacked any practical knowledge or skill. He could spend hours explaining how that when you bend a piece of metal enough times it will ultimately break. Yet, if you handed him the piece of metal you could come back years later and he would still be folding it back and forth, being no closer to breaking it than when you left.
The growing mob of the “wannabe president” crowd are ever learning the liberal mantra, but never actually coming to knowledge of the truth about Donald Trump’s comments. That is why Donald Trump is in the hearts and minds of the electorate, while these others are fading into has-beens, once-weres, and use-to-bes.
So let’s look at what is relevant. Let’s examine what Donald Trump actually said, rather than the reported deceptions by the media and hand-wringing bed-wetters in the Republican Party.
“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. … When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
Has the USA become the dumping ground for everybody else’s problem? Absolutely yes! And, the citizens of this country know it! The politicians in Washington are just afraid to say it out loud because someone might point a finger at them and say “shame, shame, shame.” The worse possible thing in the mind of a pandering politician is the potential for being shamed. That happens because they lack the mental and moral stability to stand for anything that might cast a shadow on their re-electability.
Nobody with a bit of common sense, including the four mentioned above, would possibly interpret Donald Trump’s words as meaning that it was inclusive of ALL immigrants. In fact, if they were as interested in learning truth as they are in repeating the media mantra of the day, the would see he immediately made that clear.
The evidence is more than clear and studies and statistics have borne it out as FACT that the Mexican government for years has avoided doing anything significant to stem the northward flow of illegal immigrants. Yet, that same government is very active in stemming the tide of north moving immigrants along their southern border.
The point is that regardless of how it is phrased Donald Trump is absolutely correct. “Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best”, by acquiescence and feigned at being overwhelmed, through the corridor to the United States of America.
Those arriving in fact do include criminal elements. Nothing, and I REPEAT, nothing in Donald Trump’s word should be remotely construed by an intelligent person as suggesting that every immigrant is a criminal. Only a fool or self-serving politicians seeking the perks of the presidency would draw the conclusion that is what he meant.
Now, one of the harping points by the media and these “Oh, I wish I was a popular as The Donald” politicians is that the percentages don’t support the claim that vast numbers of immigrants are criminal. Not only do they intentionally misconstrue his words, they deny the reality of what does happen. Rapists and murderers are migrating to the United States, So, I have a test for those who argue that the numbers don’t support Mr. Trump.
Here it is. Invite ten people to spend three nights in your home, alone with your attractive teenage daughter. However, one of those people must be a rapist and another must be a murderer. Give it a try. My heck, the numbers suggest that she would be perfectly safe. Why worry, why fear? You opened the door to them and they certainly will appreciate that sufficiently that they would never steal from you or injure your daughter. Afterall, we have proof of that from…a pier in northern California.
Go ahead, give the test a try! What have you got to lose?
As a follow-up to his original accurate statement Donald Trump reiterated his comment in a nationally televised interview.
“I like Mexico. I love the Mexican people. I do business with the Mexican people, but you have people coming through the border that are from all over. And they’re bad. They’re really bad,” he said. “You have people coming in, and I’m not just saying Mexicans, I’m talking about people that are from all over that are killers and rapists and they’re coming into this country.”
Again, by reading what Donald Trump actually said it is clear that those attacking him are motivated by something other than sincerity. It may just be stupidity. It may be the desire to undermine him for their own personal political gain, it may be any number of deceptive reasons. But, what it is not is a fair representation of what he said.
Now, here is the key point. The immigration policy of the United States of America is a hodge-podge of convoluted thinking by years of special interest politicians seeking to feather their nests, at any cost. The policy is an abysmal failure virtually from top to bottom. It needs serious and fundamental corrective action. As much as every election year bring a herd of politicians screaming about the failed policy, after that magic November day has passed the incentive to do anything other than campaign for money to retire prior debts or collect money for future runs is all that matters.
Donald Trump is a doer. He accomplishes things because he can, does, and will stand eye-to-eye with anyone on the planet. He will assemble a Cabinet that will know it has a duty far beyond self-actualization to get things done. Contrary to our current president that literally does not know the difference between truth and lies Donald Trump will work with the members of Congress that want to accomplish something, and not just Republicans.
Take note, while others are whispering in the shadows about how to defeat Donald Trump, for their own private agendas, the electorate is becoming more and more convinced he is the man who can defeat the doldrums of Washington.
