Along with all the construction, plumbing, electrical, farming crop pickers the US will lose $11.9 BILLION in taxes alone from illegal immigrants,
To our economy illegal immigrants do not cost the US 200 to 250 Billion as Trump keeps spouting, it's fake news. It's only around 20 Billion but it more than evens out when they bring $54 BILLION into our everyday economy. And if he could send 'Millions' out in just a few days we would lose all that money very quickly and it would cause our economy to sink.
This is all about skin color, that's all it is. The Republican's used to be the party of small government, taking care of American's in their retirement years and education. We spend less on education then we spend on war now days, billions less. Republican's only care about babies if they are still in the womb, (and that's just to make the Evangelical's happy) because once they are born Republican's have stopped almost all the healthcare and programs for newborns and toddlers. They have become the party of do the least possible for the American people but line their pockets with more money than they need.

--To be fair, Alex Jones has repeatedly apologized for his part in this nonsense and corrected his stance.--
Has nothing to do with being fair, Alex Jones only retracted AFTER he was taken to court. Just like after he was taken to court by his ex-wife did he suddenly start spouting "Alex Jones is just a character that I play on TV and the internet"
He's a grifter, a conman and he loves every minute of it. He spouts his conspiracy theories and makes millions selling fake vitamins and supplements to meatheads. Like I said he only changes his story when he is pulled into court and could lose something, either his kids or his money. Which he lost his kids in the last court appearance, and hopefully he'll lose his cash in the next one.

I have innate curiosity...why do people comment in a "I'm just gonna put it down" way? Why spend your time reading an article, one that you obviously have no interest in, not even a curiosity and then take the time to let all readers know that you're bitter and just need to down everything? I don't get it, explain to me how that makes your life better?
The surfing culture is huge, I have worked in the public cinema and I still have friends who work there, independent film in areas of surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding and extreme biking all have huge followings. They are huge to the communities that follow them, a lot of money is made from them. But because it's not something that would interest you you take the time to let everyone know your thoughts, when you could be reading an article that does interest you, learning something to get your brain going, in educating yourself.
What I read into it is you have no interest, you are bitter and bored at a life and you want everyone else to know how you feel. When in fact you make no impact on us at all, I will hit send and forget all about you. So I guess you can sit in mom's basement and let the world know how uninteresting you are, how selfish and spoiled. I'm gonna go read something that will teach me something new today. Have a good one!

You can make fun, you can say anything you want about Arashi, but in 2006 I stopped laughing, my father died and I was heading for a serious depression. One day I was on Youtube looking up a Japanese singer that was in a drama that a friend sent me to cheer me up, singers groups name AAA, I put in AAA and Arashi kept coming up, so I clicked on it after seeing all those videos and watched 5 boys as they did the most stupid things...but I laughed, and I watched more videos and I laughed some more.
Arashi makes me happy, it's as simple as that, I will miss them very much but I want them to be happy too. I will love Arashi forever! And before anyone thinks "stupid kids"...I'm 60 years old and I live in Pennsylvania in the US.

When I was in high school I was a library volunteer, part of the job was running papers to the office, sometimes I would have to sit and wait. That's when I found out what really happened between parents and school. If I did something wrong in school both my parents would come to school, ask for a complete explanation and then my parents either let the school decide the punishment or punishment at home if they didn't feel the school was punishing me enough. But while waiting in the office I came to understand that many parents would come into the office yell and scream that their baby would never do what they did, while the kid stood their and smirked about it. The teacher/principal/counselors would eventually give into the parents and the kid would walk off, tell their friends that mom or dad (usually mom) put the teacher/principal/counselor in their place and everyone would make fun of the professional after that. Happened time and time again.
So if Mr Tough Guy learns to respect his teachers because of one short choppy punch to his jaw then I say go Mr. Teacher. Being an American I'm tired of seeing kids walk all over teachers, they are the one main person who kids will relate with in public (after being taught by parents) that you respect the adults around you, once that is gone you just have chaos and juvenile delinquents who know they can get away with anything because mommy/daddy will help them get out of any trouble they make.

This is one of the biggest drawbacks about liking Japanese or Korean boy or girl idol bands. The fact that fans sit back and think nothing of the music companies controlling the human rights of the idols is ridiculous. If you are a fan, and like the fact that your idol can't date or marry well then you are one lousy fan, you're not a fan, you're a fanatic. One of the biggest things you should wish for your idol is to find someone to love, which would make them happy, and that is the biggest wish for YOUR idol, for them to be happy. If you can't wish for them to be happy your definitely not a fan.

Excuse me, but a nation like Japan, hell any Nation should be allowed to make their own choices on who they want to buy their needs from. A proud rich nation like Japan having to kowtow to Trump is an embarrassment, and I'm an American. You should be able to trade, take in, whatever the heck you want to without having to get a waiver from someone like Trump. Shameful.

"He's got the best people".
My personal favorite is the recording of Trump calling her after the firing saying that Kelly never told him he was going to fire her, because he NEVER would have allowed that, he loves her." I don't care for 'Felicia' (Omarosa) but once again he lied, he knew damn well they were going to fire her, and the reason she used the cars and the shopping was because Trump told her she could.
It all comes out in the wash...

See this is what happens, the Repubes start spreading lies and people believe it. Maxine Waters never called for anyone to attack physically Trumps CABINET, that's who she was talking about THE CABINET MEMBERS. She said keep questioning them, in restuarants, in public, at the gas station, ask them "why money was spent on tent cities, why Pruit paid millions for "tactical pants" that his workers even said they didn't need. Why did Mulvaney lie about "trickle down", that is what she is calling for, NEVER for violence. She told people to go up to them and ask questions, do it loudly and do it until they answer, get in their faces about these crap policies that they are lie about. She NEVER called for people to physically attack anyone. Stick to the truth, it's easier, the lies never stand up.

Everyone is missing the point the story is about, no countries leader should ever speak such a racist statement to another leader. Just as he should not have been attacking the other countries leaders at the G7 summit. It was boorish and has poor manners, but that is what Trump is all about, he is white trash, he attacks his allies and pats the dictators on the back, he doesn't make any sense.
And as an American who has watched the man on TV since the early 80's, he's not a good business man, he's bankrupted more business that he personally ran, he sells his name to property and reaps the benefits. He doesn't pay his contractors and he's been sued thousands of times. At one point he was 80 million in the hole. Until he swindled Deutsche Bank to loan him money that he never paid back. He's been laundering money for Russian Oligarchs for years. The man is a racist misogynist little boy and he's allowed all the racist, misogynist little boys and girls in America to stand up and be proud of their trashy ways. America is filled with TRASH, and I say that as an American.

Joe Yan; the problem with people like Dutarte is that he is killing the innocent with the criminal's. Just because the police "think" you broke the law but they haven't collected any evidence against you yet doesn't make you a criminal. If you take the laws away from man you have chaos, and that is what is going on under Dutarte's reign. Or the better question, would you want to be a person of interest who is innocent living in the Phillipine's today?

As for the First Lady speaking 6 languages as her ex-friends (she forgot all about them when she married Trump) have said in the past, she doesn't "speak" 6 languages, she can say a few words in 6 different languages, enough to order a meal or to get through a check-out. Most models can do that, but she is not a true polyglot.

The 2nd Amendment clearly states "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
The problem with that statement is gun owners aren't a Militia, and they aren't there to protect and fight for a a Free State and because of the NRA they are not regulated, in fact the NRA made it illegal to "regulate" gun owners. So the NRA is in fact breaking the 2nd Amendment. And the 2nd Amendment does not state "every citizen has the right to bear arms". This is what the NRA has distorted in America because the NRA is bought and paid for by Gun Manufacturers. And even if they think they are going to "protect" themselves from a rogue government, yeah, less than 3% own guns, and how are you fighting the government with their jets, missiles and nukes with guns...it ain't happening you've already lost.
Plus I have this question, if you are so worried that going on a list of gun owners makes you "feel" guilty, what the hell do you plan to do with your gun to make you feel guilty? Because trust me, the government that has said jets, missiles and nukes doesn't give a sh*t about Joe Smoe and his gun.
And one more thing, if you need a gun that shoots bullets faster and stronger than you are one small minded human being to begin with, small penis syndrome...

The very first Executive Order Trump signed "secretly" at that was to allow mentally ill persons to purchase guns. So, no, he doesn't care if "crazy" people get guns. Plus after the Las Vegas shooting he promised he was going to get rid of bump stocks, he lied, he didn't do anything about them. This is just another lie that he is telling. He has already backtracked about background checks after (once again) 'secretly' meeting with the NRA on Sat at the WH.
And as for him "running in", does anyone remember what happened at the rally where someone yelled 'gun', he turned away and tried to get off the stage, he ran, just like he did from Vietnam in the 1960's, he had bone spurs in one of his feet, he can't remember which one, which would have been too painful for him, but he played tennis, golf and baseball. He's nothing but a huge coward. He will go down in history as being the worst president EVER but we are paying for it now.

What I find funny is that almost everyone in the Trump family screwed up their ballots in the last election a few weeks ago in NY. Trump got his birthday wrong, he said he was born in July when his birthday is June. Melania didn't sign the outside of the envelope as stated on the envelope that if not signed it's invalid and Ivanka didn't mail hers until November 7, which is the ending date for all ballots, so it wasn't counted.
But what's really funny was that Eric and Ivanka didn't vote for their father in the main election last year, they forgot to sign up. Such patriots.
And as for draining the swamp he filled his cabinet with almost all Goldman Sachs employees, and he criticized HRC for taking campaign contributions from them, but hell he hired them, no draining of anything.

Its quite commonly known that almost all of her pieces go on "clearance" sooner or later. Look up her line in pictures, not online sales pic's but where news shows put the pictures up or shoppers put them up and most of them have either the words "sale" or "clearance" on them. Nordstroms said they informed Ivanka in 2016 that if her line didn't pick up sales from 26% they would have to discontinue it. It didn't rise, they got rid of it. She knew it was going to happen.
Check her clothes out, go into the stores and look at them. They are plain and not stylish at all.

"By contrast, under the departing Obama, the economy has added private sector jobs in 80 consecutive months and the unemployment rate stands at 4.7 percent." 4.7 percent is quite skewed, debatable not counting people who stopped looking for work and of little consolation to 95 million Americans out of the labor force in a country of 318 million. In raw math terms to us simple laymen, the number is more like 25 to 30% unemployed."
What his team counted were 16 to 25 year old -- high school & college students not looking for jobs--, housewives and moms, early retired, disabled who shouldn't have been counted because they weren't looking to be in the job market at all. If people don't want a job you can't count them as unemployed, unless you are a Republican, they don't count anyone who isn't adding to the coffers, you can't make them rich so you don't count.
And remember America didn't vote for Trump, they voted for the other guy, 3 million at last count. Trump got that ugly angry part of America that doesn't want to lose their "white privilege", and before anyone accuses me, I'm white, and I know what I'm talking about. Upper middle class Christians and that 1% have made it clear that they want their privilege back. You know that part that liked going to the rallies to get all riled up, the ones that didn't even take the time to go to DC and celebrate with their new fascist dictator.

That's okay, make fun of the "small" protest in Tokyo...just pretend that the groups around the world totalling 2.5 million don't exist, but then that's what Trumps supporters have been doing since the beginning...pretend that he doesn't lie, pretend that he doesn't destroy other business so that he doesn't have to pay them, pretend to pay taxes, pretend to have a "University", pretend that he had a million people at his inauguration when in-fact there was only 250,000, pretend that the Media lies so that when the Media prints the truth you uneducated believe his lies, pretend he doesn't demean woman, pretend he isn't a narcissist, pretend that he's a man of the people when in fact since the 1980's he's never done one, not one thing for anyone else but himself, pretend that he didn't cheat with his charity foundation to the point that New York State Attorney General closed it down for being fraudulent, pretend that he didn't plagiarize his inauguration speech from 3 different Hollywood Movies, Independence Day, Avatar, and The Dark Knight Rises...PRETEND...PRETEND...PRETEND...so now you want us educated American's to pretend along with you...nope we're too smart for that. Most of us don't live in Trumpland, we live in America.
Idiots tried to sell his wife's jewelry from the White House Website...sheesh...he doesn't even know the rules of the job. But then again he didn't know what the Nuclear Triad was. Just goes to show that a hell of a lot of Americans are idiots sad to say.

I don't think I can "trust" a man who is hiding in a foreign embassy because of a rape charge. If he was innocent he'd be trying to prove his innocence but no, he's just hiding out till the Swedish courts run out of time, which has already happened on the molestation charge.
Lets see 17 intelligence agencies, some foreign agencies or a lying sexual molester...no not Trump, Assange, which one should we believe?
Or do I believe a man who read Mein Kampf and thought Hitler was a very smart man, it was his favorite book. Ivana once said he kept a copy next to his bed. A man who believes that Putin a man who stole his fortune and doesn't allow his countrymen to have basic human rights? Ask yourself why Trump needed to have his supporters believe that MSM was all liars, so that when they reported the stupid, idiot things he does the Trumpetts all start shouting "fake news".
Now who should I believe...
Never thought I'd see America in such a pathetic state in my lifetime.

When a private citizen who could possibly be the greatest actress in the world gives her opinion at an Awards ceremony maybe Trumplett should stop and think about it before running to twitter, but no, he calls her "over-rated" and a "flunky" then says "for the 100th time" I didn't...(add any of a thousand answers) you know he's a loser and an idiot.
He's the President-elect, there are going to be a lot of people giving opinions about his Presidency (the Republicans did it to Obama for 8 years) if he has to take time out of his job to defend himself to each one by calling names he's not going have much time to be President...oh wait, that's what he has Pence for...

Why aren't all you Trump supporters questioning the fact that he has 25 companies in other countries, his clothes are ALL made in other countries...Trump shirts are made in Bangladesh, Trump suits in Mexico, Trump Vodka in the Netherlands, Trump crystal barware in Slovenia and his cufflinks and ties in China. His "Make America Great Again" hats were made in China til people questioned it and they were quickly made in Los Angeles (in a sweat shop).
He says his clothes are made outside US because "they don't make fine brands in US anymore, can't make them here"...betcha these brands were surprised at that statement.
Remember when one of the papers said that "Trump could shoot someone on the street and his supporters still would follow him"...it's true and it's freakin scary that people don't need fact anymore, they will believe what ever they're told if they think they are going to get rich. But Donald Trump has never done anything for anyone but himself and the US will find that out in the coming years. He doesn't even want to be President, he just wants to go to rallies and be told how great he is...NPD all over the place. Better keep telling him he's great or else you are going to see the biggest temper tantrum ever.

2 problems with him "saving jobs" at Carrier, #1, Carrier made BILLIONS this year, they don't need to move anywhere to cut cost, what they needed to do was take back the bonus's they gave their higher employees (one of which was 1 Billion alone). #2, he saved 1,000 jobs, but what about the other 1500 jobs that are still moving to Mexico? He literally paid Carrier to move 1,500 jobs to Mexico a total of 7 Million Dollars. And another 35% tax cuts on top of the ones they already received and 1.5 billion in Government research money they already received from Mike Pence as Governor.
So all the American companies will be lining up 'to move out of the US' so they can get their payoffs too...man didn't save anything, he paid them off.
