8:11 A.M. Melania Trump wears jacket reading ‘ I really don’t care, do u ? ‘ before visiting migrant kids …

Melania chose to investigate the ‘ incarcerated children’s ‘ actual conditions wearing a cheap off-the-rack jacket with a simple statement  on the back …

As soon as I read the headline I knew the media would be all over it in a frenzy !!! … I knew that what she was ‘ wearing ‘ would now be deemed ‘ the news ‘ rather than the hands on approach of looking into a much publicized dilemma by the First Lady of the United States !!! … I was correct , of course ! …

The first lady wore the jacket in Maryland as she boarded a flight en route to visit a group of migrant children in Texas. The words are spelled out in white, graffiti-style lettering across the back of the jacket, which retailed for $39 at Zara.

Hours after reports emerged of the jacket’s message, the first lady wore it a second time when her flight returned from Texas. The casual, off-the-rack jacket is unlike most of the formal, designer clothing that Trump is often spotted wearing. The first lady is rarely seen wearing anything with an overt logo, let alone large, printed messages.

Trump’s spokeswoman denied that the jacket had any special significance.”It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message,” Stephanie Grisham told the Associated Press.

My second thought , as I began reading , was that she may be subtly suggesting that she doesn’t care about the parent’s criminal status , she’s concerned with the welfare and best interests of the children … Which is something to be applauded … Especially by the reeling bleeding heart lib-left media !!! … Although Steffy , her spokeswoman said there was ‘ no hidden message ‘ … One has to wonder why a woman in her financial circle would be in ANY clothing store that sold items under 100 bucks !!! … So I’m thinkin’ The Donald was out with her one day , walking BY that store , saw it , and said ‘ Ya gotta buy that and wear it when ya go see the kids !!! … IT’LL DRIVE THE FAKE NEWS PEOPLE NUTS !!! …. It’ll be HUUUUUGE !!! …

MORBNOTE ; I ‘ appreciate ‘ that Trump is quite different from what we’ve seen in American Presidents … But I too find that he looks to be putting his foot in things quite often … Giving good reason for political adversaries refer  to him as an oaf … But as time passes , I’m starting to get an inclination that he may be very crafty indeed … Purposely getting the media and critics off track , focused on other things , while he pursues things his own way and feels they can stay out of it until something is actually accomplished …

Then Grisham clarified in more detail … And THIS is a very good message …

In a subsequent tweet, Grisham said the visit impacted the first lady “greatly.”“If media would spend their time & energy on her actions & efforts to help kids – rather than speculate & focus on her wardrobe – we could get so much accomplished on behalf of children,” she said.

Trump, a former model, is known for her high-fashion looks. On her first trip abroad as first lady to Italy, she sported a $51,500 Dolce & Gabbana jacket with three-dimensional flowers. Last September, she was seen gardening in a red plaid shirt from Balmain that cost $1,380.

I don’t know about you … But I’ve seen clips where these kids have bigger platefuls of food in their hands than I have these days … And others playing video games , soccer and such … Contrary to the media’s attempt to present it as a horrific sight of cruelty toward children !!! … Which they conveniently omit the fact that it is entirely the responsibility of the parents who chose to put them through it by knowingly breaking the law but thought that they should be given a pass because they brought the kiddies with them … 

Why not !!! … It’s always worked in the past … Just like up here in Canada !!!

7:18 P.M. …Trump and the Baby Snatchers !!! … OH MY GOD !!! … How inhuman !!! …

 

 

 

 

 

‘ The guy lost his shit ’ the agent said. ‘ They had to use physical force to take the child out of his hands ’…

The Post continued : “Muñoz was placed in a chain-link detention cell, but he began punching the metal and shaking it violently, agents said.”At another point in the account, The Post reported:“ ‘He yelled and kicked at the windows on the ride to the jail,’ an agent said. Shackled and handcuffed, Muñoz attempted to escape again upon arrival and once more had to be restrained. According to the sheriff’s department report, Muñoz was booked into the jail at 9:40 p.m. He remained combative and was placed in a padded isolation cell, it says.”Muñoz would take his own life.

A guard saw “ ‘a piece of clothing twisted around his neck which was tied to the drainage location in the center of the cell,’ according to the incident report filed by the sheriff’s department that morning.”I can’t begin to imagine the incredible pain and anxiety parents like Muñoz and their children must feel. I can’t imagine being forcibly separated from my children for any reason.

And yet, this has become Trump’s policy of persecution. Attorney General Jeff Sessions even had the gall to invoke one of the same Bible verses used to justify slavery to justify the current policy.Trump keeps lying about it, trying to distort reality and claim that the separations are a result of a “law” made by the Democrats.

As The Times reported on Saturday : “Mr. Trump has steadfastly tried to deflect blame for the separation of children from their parents, consistently dissembling about why it is occurring. His comments are the latest example of his asking the public to discount what it sees with its own eyes and instead believe his own self-serving version of reality. They also reflect how politically poisonous the issue has become, as photographs and news articles circulate about the effects of the practice.”

As The Times explained: “In fact, there is no law that requires families to be separated at the border. There is a law against ‘improper entry’ at the border, as well as a consent decree known as the Flores settlement that limits to 20 days the amount of time that migrant children may be held in immigration detention, which a federal judge ruled in 2016 also applies to families. A 2008 antitrafficking statute — signed into law by a Republican president, George W. Bush — also requires that certain unaccompanied alien minors be transferred out of immigration detention in 72 hours. None of those laws or precedents mean that children must be taken away from their parents.

‘ It is the Trump administration’s decision this year to prosecute all unlawful immigrants as criminals that has forced the breakup of families; the children are removed when the parents are taken into federal custody. While previous administrations have made exceptions to such prosecutions for adults traveling with their minor children, the Trump administration has said it will not do so.”

MORBNOTE ; … I love the blatant , oblivious to , self-contradiction of this asshole … ‘ ‘ prosecute UNLAWFUL immigrants as CRIMINALS ‘ … 

Well … Isn’t that the very definition of a ‘ criminal ‘ ?… Someone who breaks the law !!! …

As it is here in Canada … The USA can’t keep electing politicians who  continually avoid the problem and flush money down the toilet , while crying about the ‘welfare of the children ‘ !!! … This should make these Mexicans think twice before BREAKING THE LAW !!! … The PARENTS are to blame … They are the CRIMINALS responsible for the situation !!! … Not Trump … He’s just finally attempting to do something about it …

And what exactly is Mexico doing about it ?!!! … Aside from turning a blind eye …

For decades , Canada has protected its dairy industry , erecting trade barriers that diminish foreign competition and result in higher prices for Canadian consumers. While this has prompted longstanding complaints by the United States and other exporters , the tariffs have survived , thanks in part to a strong dairy lobby that Canadian politicians have been loath to oppose …

After a small fixed quota of U.S. exports is reached , Canada imposes a tariff on any dairy products brought into the country , with the level varying a bit depending on the specific product …

For instance , fluid milk is 241 percent, cheese is 245.5 percent , ice cream is 277 percent, cream is 292.5 percent … And butter is 298.5 percent !!! …

Experts said Trump’s tweet is a reasonable mid-range estimate and given the scale of these tariffs ;

‘ Trump’s complaints have some basis in fact ‘ …

MORBNOTE ; Now here’s where this ‘ Politifact ‘ people should basically state that Trump’s statement is 100 % CORRECT  … But like so many in the media and left leaning status quo morons , they continue on attempting to claw back some of the validity of what the Donald is saying !!! … Read on …

So said Munroe Eagles , director of Canadian studies at the State University of New York-Buffalo. Not that this is news, said Dan Trefler , a professor at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management …

‘ Has the tariff risen over time or otherwise become more restrictive over the last few decades ? … No ‘ Trefler said …Reasons the United States’ angst may be overstated … First , not all the news has been grim for the United States on the Canadian dairy front.In recent years , United States dairy producers have used technological advances to exploit a lucrative loophole in Canadian trade law. They have begun separating milk into its component parts , creating what’s called “ultrafiltered milk.” These are high in protein and are easier to use for making cheese and yogurt. Since this product didn’t exist when the most recent negotiations were completed , it falls outside the list of products with high tariffs. So in recent years , U.S. producers have sold a substantial amount of ultrafiltered milk to Canada, duty free.Canada ranks as the second-biggest market for U.S. dairy exports after Mexico.Between 2013 and 2016 , United States exports of “milk protein substances” to Canada grew from $78 million in Canadian dollars to $129 million. The United States accounted for two-thirds of all of Canada’s imports of this type.Thanks to these exports, the United States has actually posted a large trade surplus with Canada in dairy products in recent years. In 2016, the United States exported $631.6 million in dairy products to Canada, compared to just $113 million in Canadian dairy exports to the United States ( these figures are in U.S. dollars ) …

Part of the reason for low levels of Canadian dairy exports is that the World Trade Organization ruled that Canada is effectively subsidizing its dairy producers , making exports harder. This trade surplus for the United States ” has certainly helped balance whatever pain Canada’s overall dairy exemptions may have caused,” Eagles said …

Despite the complaints, the United States has long accepted Canada’s high dairy tariffs as the price of wider access to the Canadian market. The U.S. has similarly protected certain goods that it produces for export …

” In the last multilateral negotiations , Canada agreed to set its tariffs on dairy and poultry at high , but agreed, levels , as did the U.S. on products such as peanuts , tobacco , and sugar,” said Michael Hart , a trade policy specialist at Carleton University in Canada … “As good as these agreements are , the level of protection on some agriculture products remains obscene , but legal …

If Trump wants to lower them , he needs to negotiate …” A recent change in Canadian policy … That said , Canadian dairy interests have fought back with a policy that promotes using domestic sources of milk for high-protein substances. In 2017, U.S. exports of milk protein substances to Canada fell by about half. The change of Canadian policy on ultrafiltered milk ” is a legitimate concern for U.S. dairy exporters,” said Monica de Bolle , a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

Ultimately , neither side has entirely clean hands on this issue” Given the domestic political concerns and the power of agricultural lobbies in Canada and the U.S., there’s no such thing as pure-as-snow free trade in agriculture,” said Ross Burkhart , a political scientist specializing in U.S.-Canada relations at Boise State University … ” Each country can point to the other’s protection if they wish …

MORBNOTE ; Here’s Politifacts’ rulings ;

Trump tweeted , ” Canada charges the U.S. a 270% tariff on Dairy Products ! They didn’t tell you that, did they ? Not fair to our farmers !” … That number is a reasonable estimate of Canada’s dairy tariffs , which are high by any standard. That said , the United States has recently run a sizable trade surplus with Canada in dairy products , driven by a strong business in a milk product that was unaffected by the high tariffs. Trump also glosses over the fact that the United States imposes its own trade barriers on certain American-made products. The statement is basically accurate but needs clarification , so we rate it Mostly True.

MORBNOTE CONCLUSION ; The article proved Trump’s statement 100 % accurate … NOT ‘ a reasonable estimate … BUT … ‘ BULLSHIT … Their own investigation found the accurate numbers by the third paragraph !!! … But as usual they babble on about ANY POSSIBLE TAKE OR ANGLE they could scrape up to cloud the statement as much as they could !!! …

Like it has been suggested by some … And even Trump himself has said it on at least one occasion .. Trump could find the cure for cancer and the left would shit on him saying he’s helping out his ‘ BIG BUSINESS ‘ buddies in the medical corporations !!! …

4:27 P.M. Obama Says ‘I Didn’t Have Scandals ‘…

NewPolHeaderNov11

2018MediaHeaderApparently Obama is travelling about … Making all kinds of money in the process ! … Boasting that his tenure at the helm was ‘ scandal free ‘ !!! …

Here’s an excerpt from the article written by someone who puts that in its’ proper perspective …

Despite the incompetence, absurdity, recklessness, and fatalities of the program, the entire affair never really received scandal-like attention. No one lost his job. There will almost certainly be a tweet from Trump this week that political media will afford more attention than a story in which an American border agent was murdered with the gun Obama’s ATF provided.

Not even when the administration refused to cooperate with congressional investigators was it handled like a scandal.

Not even when a federal judge rejected Obama’s assertion of executive privilege in efforts to deny Congress files relating to the gun-walking operation was it treated as a scandal. Not even when we learned that Obama attorney general Eric Holder misled Congress about when he was made aware of the program did it rise to the importance of a Trump tweet.

Holder became the first sitting attorney general in American history to be held in contempt of Congress — a vote that included 17 Democrats — and Obama still never paid a political price …
