"On Day One, We Will Begin Working On An Impenetrable, Physical, Tall, Powerful, Beautiful Southern Border Wall"


That Trumpanzee performance in Phoenix last night... harridan of hate Ann Coulter, tweeted it "is the most magnificent speech ever given," better than Churchill and that she'll "watch this speech every night before going to bed so that I will sleep like a baby." Republican Louisiana Senate candidate KKK Grand Dragon David Duke also tweeted his appreciation. The reporter who covers the immigration beat for the NY Times, Julia Preston, looked at it for what it was and found another hard-core xenophobic hate speech and even Politico noticed Señor Trumpanzee was ditching his "softer approach" and returning to his core promise of a big wall, paid for by Mexico and a massive deportation program.
Donald Trump on Wednesday squashed any speculation that he might soften his immigration position to reach new voters in the final stretch of the 2016 campaign, delivering a hawkish, hardline, and true-to-his-roots border platform and vowing that on Day One of his administration, the United States would launch a mammoth deportation program and begin construction of a wall.

Emerging from a hastily organized meeting with Mexico's president, the Republican nominee flew to Arizona and not only renewed his pledge that America’s southern neighbor would fund an impenetrable, beautiful border wall but said it would be built in “record time” and at a “reasonable price."

“We will build a great wall along the southern border-- and Mexico will pay for the wall,” Trump said. “100 percent. They don’t know it yet, but they're gonna pay for the wall.”
Enrique Peña Nieto, the president of Mexico, with whom he had just met tweeted that he told Señor Trumpanzee that Mexico isn't paying for his wall and that it wasn't even negotiable.

As hard as it may be to believe Señor Trumpanzee had any high-level Hispanic supporters, the few that had clung to his campaign started abandoning him after last nights speech. That tweet above is from Jacob Monty, a member of the Trumpanzee National Hispanic Advisory Council and he resigned on the spot. Alfonso Aguilar, the president of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles seemed likely to follow today. "It’s so disappointing," said Aguilar, "because we feel we took a chance, a very risky chance. We decided to make a big U-turn to see if we could make him change. We thought we were moving in the right direction... we’re disappointed. We feel misled... I can tell you there’s a real possibility we will withdraw support from Donald Trump because of that disappointing speech."

Nick Kristoff published a column in today's NY Times delineating who's still with Trumpanzee. Trump, he points out, is the candidate all America's enemies are rooting for, starting with the terrorist organizations.
“I ask Allah to deliver America to Trump,” a supporter of the Islamic State declared recently in an Arabic-language posting. Foreign Affairs quotes jihadists explaining that Trump would say and do such crazy things that he would end up helping extremist groups.

“He must be smoking bad hashish to say such crazy things,” one jihadist added. Supporters of ISIS say they hope Trump would cause the United States to self-destruct, and that is why, as one put it, “Trump’s arrival in the White House must be a priority for jihadists at any cost!”

Of course, Trump has been endorsed not only by terrorists, but also by nation states. “Trump is not the rough-talking, screwy, ignorant candidate they say he is, but is actually a wise politician,” a columnist wrote in a North Korean propaganda magazine, DPRK Today.

The magazine approved of Trump’s threats to withdraw U.S. military forces from South Korea and noted, “Who knew that the slogan ‘Yankee Go Home’ would come true like this?”

Then there’s Russia, which seems to be not only backing Trump but also perhaps releasing stolen emails to hurt the Democrats. There are also concerns that Russia will meddle with voting systems or leak other stolen materials-- or fake ones-- to try to influence the election.

Likewise, many Chinese leaders would like to see a Trump victory, according to Cheng Li, an expert on Chinese politics at the Brookings Institution. The Chinese leaders apparently think Trump would manage allies and American foreign policy poorly, thus reducing American influence and creating space for China.

That’s quite a list of influential backers-- ISIS supporters, North Korea, Russia and China. And it’s matched at home by an array of strong endorsements that also, perhaps, don’t receive adequate attention.

“Donald Trump would be best for the job,” said the imperial wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. “The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in.”

Likewise, Trump has the backing not only of the Republican Party but also of the American Freedom Party, a white nationalist organization. “Donald Trump’s campaign may help remind Americans that all genocide, even against white people, is evil,” said Bob Whitaker, who until spring was the American Freedom Party’s presidential candidate, running with the campaign slogan, “Diversity is a code word for white genocide.”

The American Nazi Party’s position is a bit more complicated. Rocky Suhayda, the party chairman, has predicted that Trump will win and that this will provide “a real opportunity for people like white nationalists.” But, apparently worried that Nazi support for Trump might be counterproductive, he denied reports that on his radio show he had actually endorsed Trump.

“Recently, the jews-media gave the Party international coverage over our last ANP radio show, where they ‘claimed’ that I ‘endorsed’ Donald Trump, in another effort to ‘SMEAR’ the man,” Suhayda wrote on the Nazi Party website. “It was a typical kosher BIG LIE, as exposed and explained in Adolf Hitler’s book Mein Kampf-- whereas they ‘CLAIM’ that Mr. Evil Nazi (me) has embraced Donald Trump for President, hence Mr. Trump and myself are joined at the hip, being clones of Little Hitlerites.”

So maybe Trump doesn’t have the Nazi endorsement sewn up after all.

He does have the backing of other prominent figures. Among them: Martin Shkreli, who as C.E.O. of Turing Pharmaceuticals raised the price of a lifesaving drug by more than 5,000 percent; Milo Yiannopoulos, recently banned from Twitter for leading internet trolls on a misogynist and racist campaign against Leslie Jones, the comedian and actress; and Alex Jones, the talk show host who has said that the Apollo 11 moon landing was faked and that no children were actually injured in the Sandy Hook school shooting.

And Trump is also supported by establishment Republican figures like Paul Ryan (R-WI), Peter King (R-NY), Sean Duffy (R-WI), Lamar Smith (R-TX), Frank Guinta (R-NH), and Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), whose opponents you can find by tapping on this thermometer:

It's characteristically idiotic that the Democrats would now become concerned that Russia will "meddle" with the elections, while having ignored (or is that LEARNING from, for the last 16 years, at least, the real election fraud masters, the GOP.

While I was a strong Bernie supporter and have always disliked Hillary and the Clintons, I hate Trump more. Recently, due to her actions and dissing of the progressives, I had become more and more ambivalent about a Clothespin vote for her. However, the Trumpanzee is so outrageously despicable, especially after his recent speech, that I am back into the Clothespin campaign. What a horrendous mess this election is!
