War Gaming Ambassador Farage

jared

Isabel Oakeshott writing in the Mail this morning says Trump’s ‘Farage for ambassador’ tweet was

“… meticulously ‘war-gamed’ by his advisers. … the ploy was analysed at length and the note only sent after consideration of all possible tactics and the likely response.”

Last Friday the New York Observer published an article by their London correspondent Andre Walker:

Jared Kushner owns the New York Observer, he is married to Ivanka and was Donald’s campaign manager. Fancy that…

Trump Takes Inspiration From Letwin

The President-elect last night announced he will be formulating a rule decreeing that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be torn up. Of course in Britain we already have the very same rule, implemented by Oliver Letwin during the last government. Incidentally, Trump is also planning to “drain the swamp” by banning public officials from becoming lobbyists for five years after they leave their government jobs. Imagine the uproar that would cause through the SW1 revolving door…

Trump Wants Farage to Be British Ambassador

trump-fargae-gold-lift


Nigel says “I’m very flattered by the comments and I have said since I met the president-elect that I would like to do anything I can to act in a positive way to help relationships between our two countries.” An ill-tempered Downing Street has put out the line that “There is no vacancy. We have an excellent ambassador to the US.” Which is as factually true as it is unimaginative.

There are however rather a lot of vacancies in the Department for International Trade for trade negotiators. There is no doubt that for Nigel Farage the doors of the highest offices in Washington D.C. will open. It would be a self-defeating waste of a national asset to not give Nigel a transatlantic role. Theresa May should ignore the collective hissy fit of the commentariat and make him Sir Nigel Farage, Her Majesty’s Special Envoy for Trade to the United States of America…

President Signals Illegal Immigrant Crackdown, Speedy Deportations

In 1995 Bill Clinton told Congress in his State of the Union Address that he would implement a proto-Trump immigration crackdown. To a standing ovation he said

The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public services they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That’s why our Administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more, by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens.

In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan.

We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.

“Racist in the White House”?

What Does Steve Bannon Believe?

Steve Bannon provokes a lot of controversy. Perhaps it is best to listen to his own words as given to a Catholic symposium [transcript]. He has a coherent ideology, it is not as you might have read. It is rooted in a belief in a capitalism in the context of Judaeo-Christian civilisation. He has a critique of capitalism which echoes the traditional Catholic criticism of free market capitalism. He is intellectually closer to Philip Blond than Friedrich Hayek …

Labour’s Hotline to Trump

corbyntrump

Labour’s confused response to Trump has seen them favourably compare him to Jeremy Corbyn, then attack Theresa May for seeking an alliance with the President-elect. Meanwhile the Labour Twitterati are mocking the Tory row over whether they should use Farage as an intermediary. Turns out Labour have their own hotline to Trump: on Wednesday morning Tom Watson messaged Piers Morgan asking him to put in a good word:

Not sure which is more bizarre – Labour reaching out to the Donald or doing it via Piers…

BBC Presenter Tells America Britons Regret Brexit

The BBC’s World News America presenter Katty Kay is somewhat creatively telling US television viewers that Britons regret voting for Brexit. Last night Katty said on NBC’s Meet the Press that people didn’t really want to Leave and that Remain would win a second referendum:

“We did opinion polls afterwards that showed that, actually, if we were to hold the referendum again, Remain would win. There were people who came on the BBC who said, “You know what? I voted to leave but I didn’t actually think we were going to leave. It was a protest vote.” And I think what we’ve seen during the course of this week is the kind of simple, clarion call of change crashing up against the complexity of actually governing.”

This is for the birds, as recent YouGov polls and the pollster Matthew Goodwin have explained:

“There is scant evidence of buyer’s remorse. As the tumultuous summer of 2016 drew to a close, 52 per cent of voters still said that Brexit was the “right decision”.”

The Beeboids just don’t get it.

Obama Deported 3 Million Illegals

trump-cbs-60

As part of the collective meltdown of the left they are screaming “fascist” because Donald Trump intends to keep his campaign promise to deport criminal illegal immigrants. This is the kind of fascism that is more commonly known as upholding the law…

It is exactly what Hillary promised to do when she was campaigning against Obama in 2008:

“Anybody who committed a crime in this country or in the country they came from has to be deported immediately, with no legal process. They are immediately gone.”

Trump has told CBS 60 Minutes that he expects to deport 2 or 3 million illegals. Much like President Obama himself has overseen during his term in office:fy2015removalstatsfig1Looks like the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement service will just carry on doing its job as normal under Trump…
