    You elected not to publish a pointed question I asked last week about Trump’s priorities with regards to the wall vs foreign aid, so I will assume you don’t want me to reiterate that here. Suffice to say that I think the biggest myth about the wall proposal (which has been inexplicably swallowed by many on the right) is that DJT tried really, really hard to get it through, but the Dems in the house simply would never allow it. He did not try hard. He did nothing to put pressure on them. All he needed was a billion dollars—pocket change in the setting of the federal budget. There was a huge, long list of things he could have withheld from them in an attempt to get the votes; many of these things would have cost him very little politically. He should have been brawling tooth and claw right up until the last appropriations bill of his last term. Instead he shrugged, bombed Syria, and gave up after about 4 months of “effort”. Given the repeated (and very compelling) claims he made about the necessity of the wall, I think it is fair indeed to say that he “lied” about his intentions to build one.

    The second issue is the lack of support for American manufacturing. Would you agree that during the 2016 campaign, Trump expressed a desire to revivify American manufacturing, or at LEAST use the power of the state to make life a little easier for the workers whose way of life is being destroyed by globalism? Among many other comments, he expressed support for the Patriot Employer’s Tax Credit, which gave a break to employers who keep jobs in the country. There’s another bill that was being discussed in right-nationalist circles that was essentially an expansion of the EITC (I can’t remember if it actually got a name). These are the kind of promises he ran on—simple, common sense legislation that puts money and job opportunities directly into the hands of working/”non-college” families.

    ...Instead, by the end of that first year in office, he disavowed these ideas and gave us the disastrous 2017 tax bill, about which I have already spoken my peace on this forum. I absolutely think that this deception constitutes a “lie”. Do you think I’m wrong?

    Just when I thought humanity was lost, comes a thread of hope!
    We need to keep on voicing our opinions and demanding our rights!

Need more of that.
    I’m sure it was difficult for Mel not to condemn his father’s anti-Semitism. I have no doubt he had to desperately hold himself back from a full-throated support of Jews.

    The Frontline Doctors made a statement on the steps of the Supreme Court today. Their video is being instantly deleted every time it is posted, therefore, it's worth a watch.

    "News Organizations are deleting articles and re-writing the medical history of America"
    "Masks are completely irrelevant in blocking the SARS-Cov2 virus."

    Here are links to the 4 parts of the video on 8kun.top:
    Frontline Doctors - part 1
    Frontline Doctors - part 2
    Frontline Doctors - part 3
    Frontline Doctors - part 4

    The Euro Doctors made a similarly strong statement yesterday. But, good luck finding it.

    I have never in my life seen this level of blatant thought censorship.

    Prediction: Google's search engine will become a public utility. I'm not saying I agree...I'm just predicting it will happen. Hell, there's been plenty of public/government funds put into Google.

    New Zealand has quietly installed its first totalitarian dictatorship. The election is no more legitimate than the one in Belarus. Will the free citizens of NZ die on their knees or their feet?

    “Capitalism has failed our people. If you have hundreds of thousands of children living in homes without enough to survive, that’s a blatant failure. What else could you describe it as?” - Jacinda Ardern | Socialist PM

    The anti-lockdown nationalist party, Advance New Zealand, got only 20,000 votes despite reports of having over 50,000 individuals as financial contributors to the party.

    "The people who cast the votes don't decide an election, the people who count the votes do." - Stalin

    This is a good essay about mask policies
    The Year of Disguises – AIER

    Highlights:
    "Stopping humans from being human will not stop the virus from being a virus! "

    "I believe we are in as great a crisis as a species as we have ever been. The crisis is not from some seasonal virus (which is a health issue), but it is from ourselves and what we have devolved into as a species (social, cultural, ideological issues)."
