Good video.

War is great for the economy. It would also cut down on the population (especially one with China).

" The U.S. owed China $1.115 trillion as of October 2016." https://www.thebalance.com/u-s-debt-to-china-how-much-does-it-own-3306355

"That's 27.8 percent of the $3.8 trillion in Treasury bills, notes, and bonds held by foreign countries." (about 6% of the total US debt).

I'm thinking that a war with China would be a great idea. I'd even put my life where my mouth is.

It would quite probably turn into WWIII and with the nuclear exchange usually associated with WWIII. Not a great idea in my mind. This does not mean we roll over. I do agree with throwing some elbows and showing we won't be punked, but it has to be done with a great deal of finesse.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/peterferrara/2013/11/30/the-great-depression-was-ended-by-the-end-of-world-war-ii-not-the-start-of-it/

As usual, I learn something new every day. To be honest, before reading this article, I've never even really given the depression a second thought. I do; however, concede the point entirely.. especially when one looks at pics of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, immediately after being bombed, and what they look like today.

And like you.. I also agree with throwing some elbows.... I'm not diplomatic enough to strategize the finesse of it though... never been my strong suit.

5  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / More Than 100 Illegal Voters in Ohio - Ohio Secretary of State on: February 28, 2017, 11:55:49 AM
The Ohio Secretary of State has found hundreds of non-citizens registered to vote in the state, with more than a hundred of them, who were found to have cast votes at some time, and 82 of them casting votes in the last election.

http://nbc4i.com/2017/02/27/ohio-secretary-of-state-investigation-found-non-citizens-registered-to-vote-cast-illegal-ballots/

“In light of the national discussion about illegal voting it is important to inform our discussions with facts. The fact is voter fraud happens, it is rare and when it happens, we hold people accountable,” Secretary Husted said.

This is what covering one's rear end looks like. That is several Americans who have had their right to a vote stifled, with even one being too many. We're now talking about more than a 100 known cases, and hundreds registering to vote, which means at a minimum, that the thought of voting has occurred to them.

“I have a responsibility to preserve the integrity of Ohio’s elections system,” Secretary Husted said. “When you consider that in Ohio we have had 112 elections decided by one vote or tied in the last three years, every case of illegal voting must be taken seriously and elections officials must have every resource available to them to respond accordingly.”

"[...]non-citizens who have not cast a ballot will be sent letters both informing them that non-citizens are not eligible to vote and requesting that they cancel their registration. A follow-up letter will be sent to any individuals that still remain on the rolls after 30 days. Any non-citizens identified that remain on the rolls after being contacted twice will then be referred to law enforcement, according to Husted. - Why not immediately?

Ohio's demographics are stated to have  240,699 known non-citizens, with the majority being from Mexico. If the demographics for this register a number this high, for a state that ranks relatively low with illegal alien populations, how many non.citizens (illegal or documented), have voted in states where the non-citizen populations number in the millions - California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and Texas? Four of those states voted Democrat, with the other two being very close toss-ups in the last election.

Doping in sports is now ok, if you're "transitioning" from one gender to the other. It may well be the first time a girl has had an undeafeted run all the way to the state title.

http://vesselnews.io/transgender-boy-wins-girls-state-wrestling-crown/


Dancing Dog and I grew up wrestling in Iowa (where to this day, it remains the national sport and is revered), there is no way I would wrestle this person... because if you lose, you lose...and if you win, you won against a girl. I wouldn't do it.


By the current LBGTQWTF rules, if you wake up one morning and decide you are female, then you are, no makeup, dresses or surgery required. So, unaltered males that declare themselves female are now free to dominate women's sports. Oh, and enjoy the view of the locker room. Any female that protests gets shamed for her vile bigotry.


As usual, you're correct. I wonder how that would work in terms of grants and loans specifically for women? I wonder if any men have gamed that angle yet.

8  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Morena Party; Mexican government support for illegals to and in US on: February 26, 2017, 03:09:24 AM
Morena is growing in power daily here.

Mexico is already a socialist country... Morena will make it more so.

I'm wondering how long Mexico will keep its public support of migrants migrating north? Amerins by and large don't know it, but Mexico actually has public departments that promote (even illegal) immigration to the States, because of the amount of cash sent back to Mexico.

http://guerrero.gob.mx/?cat=792&s=+&post_type=directorio

http://codigo.michoacan.gob.mx/directorios/directorio_oficinas_general_cat.php?showdep=42

There are Ministries dedicated to this in every single state in Mexico.

Also noteworthy, are the huge clubs of Mexicans in the United States (primarily in Los Angeles and Chicago - being the largest amongst them), where i have personally guarded the governor here whilst meeting with them when they have returned to Mexico...to sponsor what they call a 3 for 1 program, wherein, the government here invests 3 pesos for every peso the clubs send back to Mexico....

http://www.3x1.sedesol.gob.mx/conoce.php?secc=0

You will notice that every link I attached has the ".gob" suffix, which is the Mexican equivalent of .gov, designating a government website.

The only reason Americans on't know the extent of this charade, is because they don't speak Spanish, and generally, anyone speaking Spanish in the States, supports the effort.

It's a scam of epic proportions... driven by dire need and corruption here. Americans get screwed in the process, as do Mexicans... because it allows the government here, to keep Mexicans dependant upon the US economy instead of fixing the economy here.

To date, there have only been something like 6 Mexican aircraft manufacturers, with only ONE currently producing driones... there has never been a Mexican helicopter.... there are zero Mexican car manufacturers, but they'll bu Nissan Tsurus by the ton (every taxi in the country is one almost).... and it isn't because Mexico lacks engineers that are capable of this.... it's because of a few things... government wanting to keep people dependent upon the government and ripping off the US economy being chief amongst them...

Even the drug war here could be combatted by developing the economy.... but they don't.

Strong article there GM.

Note the temporary visas granted Haitians so they can get to US border mentioned in this article:


It's important to note... the Mexican Constitution specifcally allows for anyone having the right to pass through the national territory. Article 11:

"Article 11. Everyone has the right to enter and leave the Republic, to travel through its
territory and to change his residence without necessity of a letter of security, passport,
safe-conduct or any other similar requirement. The exercise of this right shall be
subordinated to the powers of the judiciary, in cases of civil or criminal liability, and to
those of the administrative authorities insofar as concerns the limitations imposed by the
laws regarding emigration, immigration and public health of the country, or in regard to
undesirable aliens resident in the country."

Why should he invite them.  They are 24 /7 trying to attack him and delegitamize him.  So they have the chuzpah to question him when he doesn't feel like be gracious to them.

My point is merely... the news and other sources do in fact say "things."

Then again... I have always stated.... "what happens in Vegas... stays in Vegas. What happens in Mexico... never even happened."There is a lot of truth in that.
17  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: Mexico-US matters on: February 22, 2017, 01:42:41 PM
I'm an unusually well informed, Mexican friend too.

Osuna has his detractors in the news, but then again, so does everyone. I don't know the guy personally. He left office here in 2013.... I had only started in 2012.

The governor here on the other hand.... I have more than a few photos with and know him well. Monreal... does have knowledge that he probably shouldn't have.

If you want me to admit whether there are clean politicians or not, who's to say? There are plenty of stories concerning almost every one of them floating around in the news... even Peña Nieto goes from being corrupt to being "the best president in the world" (they literally said that), in the course of a week.

The police here, with anything above municipal and penitentiary police, are almost all former military and especially escoltas.

Not sure what the point is. I know what I've seen being here, working here and living here, for years.

Then again... soon to be none of my business.

It's more along the lines of the Left attacking anything moderately mainstream ie., White, Christian, etc.... that the face of the alt-right has to be something like Milo to even obtain a voice that isn't attacked instantly.

I might add that the third one passed on trying for the presidency and went back to being governor of BCN or BCS where he was reputed to have gotten quite wealthy while governor there previously-- presumably working in concert with local cartel(s).  (Working from memory here based on an article I read in Proceso the last time I was in Mexico.

Do I have this right DDF?

You do.

With the last administration here, they approved a federal loan of billions and billions of pesos. In order to pass the measure, there are many that say the votes to pass the measure, were purchased. The population was clearly against it. They have now issued a criminal case against him - http://www.excelsior.com.mx/nacional/2016/12/21/1135536

Now... with the new administration, things like seat belt tickets are appearing....a new state tax levied at the Canadian mine owners... that the Federal government just shot down... and the outgoing governor now in hot water for mismanagement of funds (he was #3 favored to be future president).... due to my status here...I cannot speak to politics without being in danger of being expelled from the country.... but I can say, there are lots and lots of stories covered publicly in the media, with proof of corruption, and all other manners of misbehavior or worse.
One of the worst case scenarios, is the case of the Monreal Family.... almost all of whom, work in the government industry, come from farms.... and have grown so rich, that one of them (David Monreal IIRC), now has mansions in Malibu and other places in the US. His relative Ricardo is now a senator here...and had written a book (Escuadras de la Muerte) . . . http://imagendelgolfo.mx/resumen.php?id=395521 .... where he describes even the age and gender on average... of sicarios.... even info that we don't have... and is said to run with the Zeta cartel, as well as is blamed for their presence here where I am at.

In my personal experience, I can say that there are almost certainly agreements between the cartels and high level politicians, because when there are not (and there have been times when this is readily apparent - administration changes, etc...)... the body counts, public executions, narcomantras and firefights spike notably.

I'm almost done with my degree in law here... and have gotten to a point, where I tire of the whole deal.... and am just looking to bring my wife back and see what we will do from there. I have possibilities in the works... haven't really heard anything from any of them.. but that's where I'm at with all of it... Had I been born Mexican, I may feel differently, but I wasn't... and that is made clear here to me daily...

Be fighting you all again in gatherings shortly I imagine. My wife sends her regards.

DDF,

and this poll was only Latinos.    What about the millions of others who are here illegal or legally but are non citizens who may have registered to vote.

Anyone think there ain't people from Asia or Europe or Africa who are not voting illegally?

There seems no easy way to find this out or else it would be in the open
The Dems like it that way obviously.



An excellent point, and one that I used in my original calculations, which may explain for my number being higher. I used the numbers from USCIS and the US Census as my sources, being that they didn't just count Latinos.

Either way, it definitely needs to be investigated, voting machines done away with, paper ballots, voter ID, and civilian, multiparty oversight of vote counting.

Barring that, it's still the adage "garbage in, garbage out."

Thank you.  (PS:  Supreme Court justice with whom I had dinner -- his nephew was a friend of mine-- was a complete lush)

Karl Rove, no friend of Trump, noted today that Pena Nieto won with only 38% and that the next election is in 2018 with hard lefty of PRD Lopez Obrador looking very strong and that if LO wins this could present serious issues for the US (e.g. becoming of use to China, Russia, Iran, etc).

Your thoughts?


Again....completely correct. People here HATE Nieto with a passion. Unfortunately for the Left (PRD, Moreno, Movemiento Ciudano, and Partido de Trabajo), they can't get it together enough to fight the PRI, that isn't fragmented. The heads from the leftist organizations, would rather be the lion of their particular little ship, than the tail of a merged organization, so they never unite. They have tried a PRD/PAN (Far Left/Far Right alliance), to yank power from the PRI, but they fail in that too. The PRI has run the country I should think, more than 80% of the time since 1917.

China's presence here is growing daily. In fact, the country is banking on China (and to a lesser extent Japan), in case the US trade market falls through.

Things are really a flipping mess here. I've said it before, and I'll say it here publicly now, Mexico has been set up for a military takeover, even ED thinks that US citizens will start being targeted soon from CNG, and I agree with him... and things are going to go downhill fast. I may be overstating the urgency of that, but it is definitely heading that direction.

Even with the deficiencies of the Left, Mexico is still a very socialist country (as you well know), and even though they can't yank the presidency, they have plenty of senators and diputados (representatives), to help the Left pass whatever they want to, and also signifying major support of the left from the people in the states and municipios (townships).

I've basically decided to finish my degree, and Cynthia and I will almost certainly be joining you all shortly. You all know me.... know what I do... and I've been hewre roughly 7 years now and wasn't planning on leaving. Now... I'm not so sure, and it isn't because I'm easily rattled.

Mexicans (in Mexico) LOATHE Trump... I have NO doubt, they'd burn him at a stake if they could. Last night on TV, it came right out of the newscaster's mouth - "La RATA que es Trump...." and you could almost hear the spittle flying out of the guys mouth when he said it.

That's what's up.

EDIT: PGC.... I just looked it up... since 1928 (the birth of the PRI party), there have been 17 presidents. 15 of them belonging to PRI, the other two PAN.... (and even the two presidents preceding the birth of the PRI, also were of the same ideology), but if you look at the current senators and diputados, it's completely different.

Senators -     

     PRI: 55 bancas
     PAN: 38 bancas - Christian Right (allies with the leftists PRD to fight PRI)
     PRD: 20 bancas - Far Left
     PVEM: 7 bancas - Green Party - Center Right - works with PRI a lot.
     PT: 6 bancas - Hard Left (hardcore socialism)
     SG: 2 bancas - Independents

Resumen - 61 PRI + Green
             - 64 Alliance between PRD, PT, and PAN
             - 2 Independents

Representatives are about the same - 500 total

PRI - 208
PAN - 109
PRD - 60
GREEN - 42
Movimiento Ciudano (left) - 24
Nueva Alianza (PRD+PAN) - 11
Morena (Left) - 36
Encuentra Social (Center right ) - 9
Independent - 1

Resumen:

PRI, GREEN, EC - 259
Left, and Right against the PRI - 240

Also, if I remember correctly, judges, even justices of the Supreme Court (I had dinner with one, Carlos del Rio, in 1978) have a fixed term (6 years?) and as such must go back to their political patron for their next job at the end of the term.


Also, correct. It can actually be between 3 and nine years, but they are temporary and the point as to pleasing their new boss is absolutely correct.

In fact, the very reason I took up law, is because every time a change in administration comes around, you're out if the new guy already has his team ready or doesn't like you....period.

Almost everything here moves in terms of six year periods, with this year being an odd exception that it will only be five years for the governor, due to the government wanting to hold all elections simultaneously, with the federal elections, or at least here in Zacatecas. I'd have to verify that with the other states, but the judges are usually six year periods.

DDF:

IN Mexican law isn't an accused person considered guilty to proven innocent?

In fact, until recently, they were. That has changed, but there is too much here to list, as to what can go wrong with anyone's case. Also, the absence of a jury is another major difference. Anyone can understand the implications of that.

Kind of feeling the same way. On the subject:

I support Trump, 100%, because he's right. Having said that, there are people here in Mexico, that want people like me expelled from the country, even though Mexico's own immigration laws and practice of enforcing them are much more severe than the United States, which.... is Mexico's right. What I take issue with, is why they get upset when someone else enforces their own laws in lieu of giving away the country.
Shot at, living with the fear of being tortured or my family being tortured, creating an aerospace industry where one didn't exist, training the people to work in it, increasing their production abilities by hundreds of percentage points depending on what the product line was, so they can remain competitive given the logistical costs in doing business with other countries (sometimes 800% faster than in the States), almost have completed my degree in law and helping people with that... given money to every single homeless person I have seen every time I have money... and the bottom line, is that many people here are racist as shit... same as anywhere else, and I can't even tell them they're wrong to be... it is absolutely their right.
Trust in God. I've invested seven years here, and so much more. Just about to finish school, and this shit. Whatever... it'll be alright either way. If only my own country would have given me the same second chance I have received here.

Typical liberal 30 something little creep stating Trump's claim is "debunked". 
The LEFT has done everything they can to keep from being able to track who IS voting with denying voter IDs etc and then turns around and claims there is no fraud and no proof of it.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-calls-for-major-investigation-into-debunked-claim-of-widespread-voter-fraud-134317994.html

I left them a nice comment on that article. They know that voter ID will be the death rattle of their party, which is why they fight it so hard. Poorer countries do it, including Mexico... their only reason to fight it, is the loss of power that will result from it, and they know it. Unfortunately, they've left themselves nowhere to go, by accusing Russia of hacking elections.

DDF welcome back.
too busy partying after Trump win?   grin

Thanks CCP.... yep...getting crazy with non alcoholic, apple cider and finshing a degree in law. Wink

By the way, I was mistaken.... evidently, Trump announced it at 04:10 EST.... I have my comp set to Queensland time, and I missed it by an hour. The link is here.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/824227824903090176?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw


CCP.... hope we are partying for the next decade and a half.

Another prediction.... Dems don't know it yet, but they've just slammed their hand in the door on voter ID, by accusing Russia of interfering in the elections. There will be legislation passed before 2020, that the Dems will want, that will only be passed by allowing the Conservatives to write in voter ID laws.



I hope you are correct. Usually the republicans never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

Trump just tweeted a major investigation into the subject from the angle of illegals voting, and others voting more than once, at 07:10 EST today.
47  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: President Trump on: January 25, 2017, 08:54:11 AM
My wife and I were watching the news together recently and we had a moment where we could really imagine 8 years of Trump and then 8 of Pence (is he young enough for this?).  Imagining 16 good years for our country was a very nice feeling.


I think so. If you keep people's wallets fat, they really don't care about much else for the most párt. Listening to Trump's announcement of when he will divulge who is to be his pick for the Supreme Court, and the manner in which he did it, smacks of business leadership and lingo. I know that govenment and business are two different things entirely, but having someone that is capable of generating capital, there is much to be said for that.

Even the safe space people, as soon as they are out of their universities, and cut off from the tit, will be worried about whether there will be jobs to buy all of the comfortable things they want (since none of them actually have the courage of their conviction, to go live in one of the countries where they'd actually be "equal," "lose their privileged status" or that actually practices all of their socialist, social programs, such as North Korea). Whoever gives that to the people, wins.

Edit: I wanted to add, that in Russia, most people don't really fall in love. There's a reason for it. Hard to fall in love, when you have nothing to eat. As much as Americans hate other Americans (and we do), nothing solves racism and other things, like a full belly and all kinds of material toys and money to travel.

I do. Funny...no one ever responds to anything I write unless there's a mistake in it. Actually came back here specifically to fix it; yet, there you were. Imagine that. In any event, he'll be president again. Calling it now.

Calling Trump from the outset last time was nice. See how I do this time. Anyone want to bet?

I'm hoping he does such a great job it's an easy re-election. I still keep waiting for him to fcuk us over, sell us out. Thus far, I'm pretty happy with what he's done.
I hope so too.

Sure enough, as to the post in voter fraud, Trump just an hour ago called for an investigation into voter fraud. I think Trump will usher in the change many are looking for.
