We're driven by a sense of inequity

Ban her from more countries please.

How long until they ban commies and socdems

I don't care just ban her from leaving the house

They got deported from a white country, this i slike fucking poetry. Made my fucking day.

And here I thought they were trying to chicken out by making unrealistic demands. Looks like it's actually going to happen.

Of course it's going to happen. Can you imagine the ratings? You think Trump would honestly let Tillerson or Kelly or who the fuck ever take that away from him?

Time to radicalize teachers' unions lads

Holla Forums has a thread on it, the sheer volume of salt is a sight to behold.

a few months ago Holla Forums was attacking her for being a nigger lover.
They are so fucking cucked.

what really drove palm into face are the ones claimign that they're going to actually so something about it. i'm almost tempted to go deep cover and induce another namibia

upvoted my fellow culture warrior

Thanks.

wtf guys i meant brown people

No, far more likely schools will see an expansion of school police officers. You know, like a police state has. This works great with other policies like closed campuses, mandatory uniforms, and clear bag requirements. Costs that are ultimately pushed onto the student, including the most poor ones who won't be able to afford it and will be expelled or sent to the designated dump school when they cannot pay. Just like it is in Mexico.

fuck. you just reminded me I went to a middle school with all that. I must've completely blocked off that part of my brain. GOD I hated those clear backpacks. They had the option for mesh ones but they were both equally shitty. Albeit this was a very shit american charter school. I wouldn't wish that experience on any kid.

I'm surprised Holla Forums isn't celebrating with Holla Forums at this news.

I called this shit last April.
Nothing is going to come out of the Russia probe, just in time for midterms. The dems are now out of gas.
Get ready for the red wave in 2018 and Trump's second term.

more like a blue fizzle than people flocking to the republicans but trump will be replaced in 2020

oh no, a lot will come out of it. Trump will claim Putin tried to hurt/frame him then play the national security card to justify domestic censorship. Dems will have to swallow a new law directly aimed at destroying leftist movements or appear as weak on Putin. It'll work flawlessly because Dems stupidly hyped it up and gave it life.

The debate over gun control has made it into a 2018 issue, just as Senator Manchin (D-WV) lost his NRA endorsement. He ain't getting reelected and Hietkamp is in the crosshairs too while Republicans have a good chance of poaching Franken's vacated seat. Democrats need to pick up at least two Senate seats to have a clear majority, Manchin leaving would bring it up to three, Hietkamp and Franken would bring it up to five.

Dems have a weak hand, especially as Trump starts moving on trade.

This was the Republican house investigation. The Mueller one is still on the table. It's just a circus performance really, a really lame one even in comparison to the Mueller investigation.

Shh, let Holla Forums larp about their "accelerationism" and the worker revolution that won't happen.

Dems would be more than happy to kill leftist movements.

And we're the larpers

I highly doubt this administration will last, mostly due to the absolute economic hell that awaits basically anyone involved in any level of trade at all. So I guess North Korea and Cuba might be spared. If you pay attention to economic news, it is basically a foregone conclusion that a total economic wipe out is going to happen.

That won't stop Trump, it will merely give him a blank check to enact more Tariffs which is what voters in swing states want. Wall Street can completely collapse, San Francisco can completely burn to the ground so long as workers in Pontiac, Cincinnati, and Harrisburg get more hours at work. He knows exactly how to win here, and it's focusing all his energy in running the gauntlet and getting an EV win.

The only thing that could stop him is if Democrats suddenly went harder than him on trade or do a 180 on guns and crush him because of his recent move towards gun control. But Democrats refuse to do both these things, therefore Trump has all the room to operate as he needs.

All Trump is doing is purging their jobs faster.

Take steel for example. The reason steel jobs have been in the decline isn't because of cheaper alternatives, but rather because technology has progressed to the point that we don't need large refineries to make a lot of steel. We can do it with smaller plants and a smaller work force.

The tariffs, like the tax cut, are just another dump of cash into furthering the workers obsolesce. Steel workers, like the coal miners, will find themselves in a worse spot than when they started.

Attached: 1504562604739.jpg (640x480, 50.15K)

wrong, the US imports more steel now than ever before. Jobs are gone because of outsourcing, not because of automation. In fact the outsourcing prevents automation because investors simply destroy steel mills for scrap rather than reinvest in them. Mitt Romney did this as head of Bain Capital.


Exactly which is why the Tariffs won't affect much in the US in the long term: reinvestment will happen then production will increase within smaller, but more automated, plants.
