President Trump’s 2017 Joint Address

After causing a major scare over “comprehensive immigration reform” this afternoon, President Trump seemed to back away from the idea in his address to the nation tonight:

Here’s the whole speech:

  • Don’t worry, we’ll get Richard’s official reaction to the speech any minute now, no doubt while he’s on important undercover work overseas.

  • Merit-based immigration would be a huge step in the right direction. I favor net-zero immigration, but a merit-based system would favor European immigration into the US.

    • Totally disagree. Totally! Look at Canada! Is Vancouver White???
      Millions of Indians, Chinese and Middle Easterners will flock. Eventually, they will drop merit-based requirements for Sub-Saharan Africans as an affirmative act.
      A merit-based system is an accelerated destruction of America.

      The only solution to immigration is NO Immigration or proportionally to existing, TODAY’s racial distribution.

      • Trump isn’t Justin Trudeau, and you’re replacing your fears with concrete policy positions. Africans and Arabs can’t compete in a true merit-based system.

        • Who do you joke, here? “Africans and Arabs” can’t compete in a true merit system”
          We just went through an eight-year reign by a mulato president! And they had said we would never have a black president!

          The merit-based system might have had some merits 30 years ago, before globalization. It is totally obsolete now. Just to think that Europeans will flock over here is preposterous.

          • You think Obama is representative of the average Arab or Nigerian? Politics is the art of the possible. I favor an incremental approach to achieving goals, if necessary, and will not let better be the enemy of perfect, or maintaining the status quo.

          • Not Arab or Nigerian, but Kenyan.
            We are so far in a shithole than none of half-pregnant solutions will work.

          • You’re right. “Merit based” would not be fair or unbiased. All the ones selecting the “meritorious” immigrants would signal hard they’re not racist by allowing tons of muds in. To a cuck, an immigrant’s “merit” is their race.

  • “Immigration reform” has become something of a far-left, radical codeword for “all must stay”. Marc Zuckerberg’s idea of “immigration reform” is a great example.

    The Western left makes their anti-national, ethnomasochistic, self-hating beliefs very clear in their respective countries. As nothing short of absolute demographic replacement will appease them – and anything further to the center/right of that extreme radical position is “cruel” or (insert any negative emotional term here) they have made their declaration of war upon thousands of years of civilization, their culture, history and ancestors extremely clear.

    The parasite always agitates against its host. Would a parasite understand how utterly worthless it is compared to its host were it to possess the ability of thought? Hah… it would believe itself to be superior to its host, perhaps even to all living things. Maybe it even has a point – the host performs activities to survive whilst the parasite lives for free and only with the host’s continuous consent.

    The left shares this parasitic relation – with civilization as its host. They simply exist on the backs of the societies their ancestors built whilst aspiring at every turn to destroy it. Why? Just like a parasite given thinking ability, leftists think they “know better” and have certain “value” over civilization. Civilization is “heartless”; they are “compassionate”, civilization is “rigid”; they are “free”. The left is “all-knowing” while all else is “bigoted”, “closed-minded” and “ignorant”. They are “forward” while all else is “back”. They are “future” while all else is “past”. They status signal constantly simply to reassert their egotistical, hyper-inflated sense of self-worth. Their whole existence exists upon what each of them can get out of their fellow man – they pursue this collectively to combine their strength, though they are at heart individualist.

    Unfortunately for them, leftist ideals built no civilization anywhere. Civilization (built always by the right and essentially a right-wing concept) shows the right always knows better than the left simply out of civilization’s very existence. And as with any organism suffering from an infection the only way to restore its health is to cut the parasite loose (something it will naturally fight to the death, for the left cannot exist were it to be severed from wealth redistribution/socialistic policies and other forms of institutionalized parasitism).

  • Richard Spencer seems to be a bit of an idiot if he puts on his twitter feed the ‘sucker punch’. It’s overlaid with twinkly music, and showing him clutching his head and the message is he’s a cry baby.
    I would say it wasn’t just a standing punch. The assailant seems to run up to him and that added momentum. That kind of blow to the head would be disorientating, you can’t just turn around without first assessing the damage, and severity of injury. I assume if he’d got in a fight, even though the antifa ran off, then he’d be the one arrested.

    If this is all being put about that’s it’s okay for opponents to attack any of us in this way, then Richard Spencer is going along with this subliminal message. He’s not doing the movement any favors. The same with ‘hailgate’.

    • That was a video that Milo released. Everyone’s favorite gay neoconservative Since I would not have known it existed otherwise, so I appreciated the opportunity to down vote and comment on it.

  • These were the most important lines of the speech, after discussing NATO and the right of all nations to chart their own path —-> “My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America. But we know that America is better off when there is less conflict, not more. We must learn from the mistakes of the past. We have the seen the war, and the destruction, that have ravaged and raged throughout the world, all across the world. THE ONLY LONG-TERM SOLUTION FOR THESE HUMANITARIAN DISASTERS, IN MANY CASES, IS TO CREATE THE CONDITIONS WHERE DISPLACED PERSONS CAN SAFELY RETURN HOME AND BEGIN THE LONG, LONG PROCESS OF REBUILDING.”

    • Also noteworthy, of course, were his lines pertaining to the reform of LEGAL immigration:

      “Protecting our workers also means reforming our system of legal immigration. The current, outdated system depresses wages for our poorest workers, and puts great pressure on taxpayers.

      “Nations around the world, like Canada, Australia and many others –- have a merit-based immigration system. It is a basic principle that those seeking to enter a country ought to be able to support themselves financially. Yet, in America, we do not enforce this rule, straining the very public resources that our poorest citizens rely upon. According to the National Academy of Sciences, our current immigration system costs America’s taxpayers many billions of dollars a year.

      “Switching away from this current system of lower-skilled immigration, and instead adopting a merit-based system, will have many benefits: it will save countless dollars, raise workers’ wages, and help struggling families –- including immigrant families –- enter the middle class.

      “I believe that real and positive immigration reform is possible, as long as we focus on the following goals: to improve jobs and wages for Americans, to strengthen our nation’s security, and to restore respect for our laws.”

  • I admit, I was almost worried at the immigration remark, but then I remembered I was watching Faux News in the break room and this is President Trump we’re talking about, and suddenly all potential doubt was erased and /magically/ our God-Emperor confirms he’s still the God-Emperor and Faux news is lying again, how strange.
    “Cruel Hoax” lol. “We lied about him, and he didn’t confirm our lies, SO IT MUST BE A HOAX!”.

    • No, Trump is cucking and his latest talk is ruining the country. He made a strategic leak about his softening stance to NYT yesterday. He seemed to be opened now to embrace illegal aliens and provide them with amnesty. A complete departure from his campaign promise. Notwithstanding the fact that his mere talk about amnesty exponentially increasing the number of illegal entries into this country as he speaks.

      His school voucher system will RUIN the public school education, which will be flooded by minorities (Blacks mostly) taking advantage of it. The only solace for my White kids for which I pay and make a lot of sacrifices.

      The merit-based immigration system is another garbage from Trump’s mouth. We will be flooded by Chinese, Indians, Mexicans and Middle Easterners. Fob sub-Sahara Africans merit-based requirements will be waived.

      Diversity has once ruined the Soviet Union and will ruin the United States.

      • Yeah I just saw the “We’re gonna burn billions on blacks” education order, that pretty much ruined my day by itself. I was hasty on my OP I admit.
        Immigration could sway either either way, but the mere possibility of it opening gates to degenerates is sickening.
        Like, I get him having to disown some Jew headstones being pushed over because Anti-Semitism and Nazis omg for PR, but BILLIONS of dollars for monkeys to shit on the walls in college bathrooms? Did not need to hear that right as I’m about to start college.
        Diversity has ruined every empire of the White man, the USSR is merely the most recent.

        • they asked for 40b. Trump will offer 40k. i’m thinking they’ll be lucky to get 40m. Trump is the great negotiator, remember? I think your OP was nicely nuanced. You cannot believe a single word from the malstream media about Trump!
