These are the crazy years. Lies are better than honesty and tabloids are better news than newspapers. I no longer believe that’s a coincidence, having figured out how Trump behaves. A recap of his latest trolling:
Cher: Los Angeles ‘Can’t Take Care of Its Own, How Can It Take Care of’ More Immigrants
By John Binder, 14 April 2019
Pop icon Cher said Sunday that Los Angeles, California, “can’t take care of its own” residents, much less newly arrived illegal and legal immigrants.
Cher said she failed to understand how the city of Los Angeles in the sanctuary state of California could afford to admit and take care of any more immigrants when city officials have failed to care for homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans.
“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” Cher said.
The post came after President Trump threatened to bus border crossers and illegal aliens into sanctuary cities and states, like California, if the country’s asylum laws were not changed. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that the White House is considering the plan.
In response, Democrat mayors across the country — like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf — have welcomed bringing illegal aliens and border crossers to their cities.
While left-wing mayors say they will continue to admit any and all illegal and legal immigrants, Los Angeles is home to the second largest homeless population in the country, second to only New York City. About 50,000 residents of Los Angeles are homeless and about 7.5 percent of California’s American Veteran population is homeless.
On one hand, Trump’s enemies fell over themselves virtue-signaling one way or another. Fun, if you’re rhetorically (feminine) minded. On the other hand, if you aren’t then like me, you probably had a moment of terror that Trump might actually have done what he threatened to do. The border is already catastrophic so “crashing the system” would be a way for Trump to punish his enemies… in the short term… at the expense of us innocents.
But don’t worry. The U.S. President never meant what he said.
Christ teaches us to let our yes be yes and our no, no. I never thought that was an important teaching until recent years. Don’t be a liar, sure, but what do you call it when being right or wrong is irrelevant?
It’s comparable to the situation at Notre Dame right now. Was the fire an accident or was it Muslim arson? It doesn’t matter. The French government’s long pattern of protecting Muslims vandalizing churches means that its investigation into the fire’s cause is worthless. The Muslims are celebrating the fire as if they did it and the French people won’t believe any evidence that the 601st church desecration was the 1st accident. Nor should they. It’s all come down to identity politics. Truth, lies, they all work fine, whatever’s good for me & mine.
What a great world we’re living in, when the value of a man’s words are whether they make his enemies look bad. News flash, Trump, we already know that Hollyweird actors are NPCs and the immivasion generals are traitors to America. So, what are you going to do about it with the authority the American people have given you?
Embarrass America’s traitors instead of giving them perp walks? Give washed-up Cher the vapors? Thanks for nothing. Meanwhile, people who would otherwise be well-inclined towards you have learned you can’t be trusted about anything you talk about for several days. Awesome leadership!
Lack of trust has consequences more severe than the benefits of winning at word games. Empty threats and shallow gestures are not how Christ taught us to speak.
