This is a scam, just like illegal immigration is in the US.
But just like in the US, this will do irreparable harm to Japan’s culture. Japan is one country that has so far staved off the false promises of globalism. Japan’s mono-culture is what makes it Japan. A nation’s shared language and culture is what makes it a nation. Chip away at those and the country begins to unravel. The melting pot doesn’t work; all the ethnicities just Balkanize themselves. Just look at France.
If this continues, Japan will no longer be Japan.

What amazes me is that how phony the Democrats out reach and admiration is for Bush 41.
That's typical phony politics for you. The lovefest for GHW is fake news at its finest. We don't need to wish ill on the dead, but it's been nothing but veiled swipes at Trump.

The 500-pound gorilla in the room is Israel, specifically Netanyahu and the Likuds.
They’re closet allied with the Saudis, hence so is Trump, who took $12 million of Sheldon Adelson’s money and became beholden to his “Israel First” foreign policy as a result.
The lesson here: don’t take anyone’s money if you run for office. It’s the surest way to become a puppet.

Is that some radical socialism?
I didn’t say he was a radical socialist. I clearly said that the new breed are. Bernie is an old-school socialist who cares more about wages than identity politics.
Then again, he capitulated and called for abolishing ICE, even though he rightly noted in the past that illegal immigration drives down wages. Well, he’s still a politician after all.

Bernie probably won’t run again and if he does he likely won’t get the nomination. He just doesn’t have broad enough appeal. He appeals to millennials who don’t understand economics, and old Birkenstocks-with-socks latte-sipping Volvo-driving unbearable hippies.
Democratic socialism also won’t really work in the US because our government services and bureaucracy are run like garbage. Unless the idea is to create Central Planning and fire all the lazy civil servants that congest everything.
Then again, Bernie would be preferable to the even more extreme new breed of progressives coming down the pipeline. God save us if the Ocasio-Cortezes get into power. You won’t even have a country anymore.

Everyone is so eager for a President Pence.
How dull would that be?
Look, Russians hacked the DNC servers. They hack a lot of stuff.
However, none of their efforts convinced people to vote for Trump. People voted out of their own free will. Case in point: The latest indictment did not include any American citizens.
Perhaps it’s because laws are for poor people. (See: Hillary ir Bill colluding with Loretta Lynch, the Seth Rich case, Gaddafi, etc). But if it were meant to be, don’t you think it would have already happened by now?

Trump Derangement Syndrome being displayed to full effect in here. People actually count the number of days Trump has been in office? Might need to get out more.
Back on topic, CNN getting some competition in the hotel/hospital waiting room/retirement home market (the only places where people watch CNN) wouldn’t hurt. Might keep CNN on its toes.

But I thought only racists were opposed to the caravan?
As I said before, even Mexico doesn’t want the caravaners and Mexican citizens posting on social media have made that clear; they’ve pointed out how the caravaners leave behind trash and went from asking for help to demanding it. “Shameless” is a popular word being thrown around.

Japan, and the US, have to be tough with fake refugees and asylum seekers, i.e. economic migrants who have rebranded themselves.
Do things legally and there will be no issues.

Mueller hasn’t found anything because there’s nothing to find. The intelligence community is packed to the gills with Swamp Creature never-Trumpers and anti-Trumpers who would be happy to see him gone.
This is all part of the Democrats’ new modus operandi to win at any costs is: if they lose any election, it’s only because the Republicans cheated.
If a Republican claims a Democrat cheated, they retort: “You have no proof.”
Well, guess who has no proof about Russia collusion?

They are protectionist, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Smart countries, like Japan, employ some measure of protectionism.

there have been no missile tests, are liberals not happy with that at least?

Not having love for the caravan itself is one thing. Having a racist attitude, of which, Trump and his supporters do, is a different subject, entirely.
That cuts both ways; most progressives are anti-white oikophobe racists themselves.
A lot of hate out there.

Yea, like Fox News;
Last week: "It's an invasion force of MS-13 and Middle Eastern terrorists!" "They're at the border ready to shoot at our troops!" "Diseases!" DEFCON 1!
This week: . . . . .
Here's Fox four hours ago reporting on the caravan:
Or how about the NYTimes:
Or the BBC:
As an aside, I have many friends from Mexico on FB at their extreme displeasure with the caravan. They're uploading photos of all the trash the caravan people leave behind, and how they're demanding rides, food, and shelter from Mexican authorities. Mexico has no love for this caravan either, so there goes the racial argument.

I almost feel bad for Macron; after all, this isn’t a fair fight. He’s a globalist/EU nice-guy puppet and they’re sending him to fight Trump.
Not good for Macron.
What’s worse, the EU needs the USA more than the USA needs the EU. So he’s not even dealing from a position of strength.
Oh well, this is all theater to try to discredit anyone who dares to oppose a globalist world order. And all the anti-Trumo crowd ate willingly walking right into their dystopian future while patting themselves on the back.

I don't know what was worse; Trump's attitude toward the Japanese reporter, or the Japanese reporter's terrible English.
I know lots of Japanese people don't have the best English, but a foreign correspondent being sent to the White House? Come on, guys.
