The 5.2% illegal alien tax.

"$493.9 billion annually, according to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

Illegal aliens lower wages by that amount. It is a 5.2% payroll reduction, a tax if you will on workers."

Typical democratic payback.

I'm not even sure she'll be back from her deployment in time to make the debate. If not, they should postpone the debate in honor of her service to this country.

What say you?

This doesn't surprise me. There are so many white people out there who interact with blacks on a daily basis with the mutual understanding that if I give you respect I expect respect.

As a white male I meet black Americans on a daily basis. I love life so I usually have a smile on my face and give a polite nod to every black I meet.

If we deal with each other by the golden rule, attitudes change, we learn to get along.

For those of us who don't get to interact on a regular basis, racism may be stronger, but if I'm gonna be honest, I think inner city blacks may be the most racist of all.

They are fed propaganda that is hard to dispel without meeting white people. And people like Al Sharpton make a living off perpetuating this.

As it should be, these EU nations expect us to solve their problems. Truly annoying after all their complaints about Guantanamo Bay.

We Europeans are humanitarians, we would prefer that the Americans would kill these people so that we don't have to.

Heck, PIN, all kinds of things. Unless you can weave Donald Trump into the narrative.

I mean if they are a Trump supporter they are obviously aberrant and deserve anything that befalls them.

Can't have a beauty queen who supports Trump as that is the antithesis of "beauty" these days.

Looking forward to next year's debate, first encounter:

Elizabeth Warren: Pres. Trump, yadda, yagga and yet a bing-boom.

Pres. Trump: Elizabeth, no one believes you anymore. You've lied too often.

Boom.

Interesting graph in the article showing the recent up-tick in NYT articles on racism/slavery.

NYT is now the Al Sharpton of newspapers. I really can't understand the complexity of US history being boiled down to such a biased, simple take.

Good morning!

Last night the President retweeted a lot of people, which should give you an idea of who he was watching and what he was reading last night.

People he retweeted include Kimberly Strassel, Andy McCarthy, Tom Fitton, and Stuart Varney.

Here is the link to his Twitter page if you want to check.

“As a friend of President Trump’s I can assure your audience that he does not have a messiah complex,” Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, said on the Todd Starnes radio show on Fox News while discussing previous remarks by the president saying American Jews who vote for Democrats are disloyal to Israel.

jimmyk,

Those violent T-storms you experienced were expected. They tore across central NJ and then hugged the coast. I was watching TV and they were all broadcasting warnings via screen rolls.

Bergen County was mostly untouched, but they called warnings for Essex, Hudson, SI, Manhattan and Long Island. Winds up to 60 MPH and heavy rain. I watched it out my window.

NY Giants 3-0 on the preseason. They fixed the offensive line. Eli looking good. Jones, the draftee, also looking good. Defense looking good too. I may even watch the regular season games.

Narc posted this most interesting article about Magnum PI last night --which is now streaming.
A blast from the past--and a peak inside how TV shows come to be.

nytol, I'm suffering from NY Giants optimism, which I am sure will be dashed soon enough.

"👁‍🗨Today isn’t the first time Patrick Byrne has told his story, he reached out to Butina’s lawyers last month and it paints a more complete picture. This letter to @TheJusticeDept @JusticeOIG and OPR was sent July 25th and it’s alarming if true."

anonamom,

Thanks for calling my attention to that article on Magnum, P.I. One of my family's favorite series.

My brother, who like my dad has always had a mustache, took to wearing Hawaiian shirts due to that series, and STILL wears them!

Just more chaff thrown to confuse and induce a tuning out. Safely ignored.

What we need to know is already known. And nothing is being done about it.

The Economy is strong and good, whereas the rest of the world is not doing so well. Despite this the Fake News Media, together with their Partner, the Democrat Party, are working overtime to convince people that we are in, or will soon be going into, a Recession. They are.....

..willing to lose their wealth, or a big part of it, just for the possibility of winning the Election. But it won’t work because I always find a way to win, especially for the people! The greatest political movement in the history of our Country will have another big win in 2020!

Jimnj,

Don’t get too optimistic about the Giant’s pre-season. Remember the Lions went undefeated in pre-season a few years back and then went something like 3-13 in regular season. The Browns did something similar last year or year before.

Pre-season games are called Exhibitions for a reason.

Today at the WH. Pres Trump has a private lunch with @SecPompeo, who spent most of yesterday conferring in Ottawa with Canadian leaders in advance of the G7. Pres and Mrs Trump leave late tonight for the G7 in Biarritz, by way of Bordeaux.

You really need to watch Blue Bloods Miss Marple. I will have an intervention for you if you don’t. I catch reruns on the ION network right now but the Season Premier should be soon.

Byrne/Butina,

Weird.

JIB, understood , but the Giants did seem to fix their offensive line. The weakest part of their team for several years.

I haven't watched NFL games for 2-3 years now and didn't miss it, but if the Giants can perform, I might start watching again.

Magnum PI: we watched it faithfully when Jr was growing up. It was certainly part of why he was inspired to go to USNA. Then, I think in his Firstie Year, he ends up standing a few feet from Magnum when they shoot the final episode of the show on campus. Coincidentally Jr picks Intel as his career path and three yrs later ends up stationed on Oahu. Not a bad role model, all things considered. Never grew a mustache, though. :)

I, on the other hand, was impressed with Quigley Down Under because his rifle was a Shiloh Sharps created in Big Timber MT a few miles from our last ranch I grew up on.
