Donald Trump Issues a Call to Action for Americans Regarding Mexico

In case you missed it, Donald Trump isn’t fond of Mexico. Or Mexicans. He thinks Mexico is complicit in working to send millions of their poor and their criminal element to the US. The Donald is, well …

And he wants to strike back .

Donald Trump is now advocating a US boycott of Mexico.
“I’m not going to Mexico. And I don’t think anybody from this country [should],” Trump said on the Rita Cosby WABC radio show.
“I think we should boycott Mexico, frankly.”
He blasted the Mexican government and court system as corrupt.

There’s no word on how Mr. Trump feels about the Obama administration.

He’s taking heat from all sides for calling Mexican illegal aliens “drug runners and rapists,” and we think he mischaracterized Mexican illegals. He left out “murderers.”

It seems that The Donald has struck a chord with Americans because, while he takes heat from the political class and the media, he’s pulling away at the top of the Republican primary sweepstakes with a nine point lead over Scott Walker and a ten point margin over Jeb! Bush in the latest round of polling.

We don’t think that will hold because deep in his heart (assuming he has one) The Donald is no conservative.

“I want healthcare for everyone,” Trump said, sounding more like President Barack Obama. “We have to take care of people that really can’t take care of themselves.
“You can say that’s not a conservative way,” he acknowledged. “Well, if it’s not, that’s going to be a problem for me.”

Donald, it’s going to be a big problem for you. So will the big donations you’ve given to Hillary and the Clinton Foundation over the years. Oh, and why was she in the front row of your last wedding?

Donald is a distraction, the media loves him because he’s essentially a fruit-loop and he gives them headlines they can pin to all Republicans while trying to avoid any discussion of the Hillary Meltdown.

    “Donald is a distraction”
    Yeah from the GOP establishment party line.

    He is giving voice to issues that the GOP establishment would prefer to just go away. Ballless Boehner, McCuckold McConnell, Grahamnesty, Bush, and the rest of the establishment GOP want the immigration issue to go away and Trump is doing a clarion call.
    I just hope that he starts preaching on some other issues that the establishment wishes to keep quiet (like Obamacare) like he is doing with immigration.
    If Trump were saying something that resonated with people than his poll ratings would be umm zero. You know sorta like Lyndsey Graham. Or he would be an also ran like Romney and McCain (Gee they worked out so well didnt they).

    Becker must have finally got the memo to stop lionizing Trump and start mocking him.

      He’s torn.

  • Retired military

    “he gives them headlines they can pin to all Republicans”
    As opposed to the press calling us murderers, rapists, and facist. hell it is an improvement. The press will always say bad things about the right. Sucking up to them and being nice doesnt work. We saw how well that worked out with Romney and McCain.

  • Commander_Chico

    Trump is a God-damned draft-dodging chickenhawk, and Mexican-Americans are overrepresented in U.S. combat deaths over the last 50 years.

    • jim_m

      So says that stolen valor fake vet. Give it a rest.

    • jim_m

      Chico is a liar about combat troops. More evidence that he never served:

      While overall, minorities comprise 30 percent of the Army, one of the
      two services that would be expected to bear the brunt of close combat in
      Iraq, they tend to be underrepresented in the combat arms….

      By contrast, he observed, the infantry, which generally suffers the most
      casualties in wartime, had become “whiter than America.” African
      Americans constituted nine percent of the infantry, compared to 11.8
      percent of the age eligible civilian population. In 1995, 79 percent of
      the new troopers were white, compared with 74.3 percent of civilians.
      There is little evidence to suggest that these figures have changed much
      over the last five years.

      This is not new. It has been pointed out before.

      Chico is full of crap.

      • Retired military

        “Chico is full of crap”
        Thjis has been pointed out before as well.

        • Commander_Chico

          One fact is indisputable: Trump is a God-damned rich boy draft dodger.

          • jim_m

            Care to retract your original lies then? And other than the “rich boy” comment he is just like you.

          • Retired military

            One fact is indisputable.
            You are an idiot
            And I dont remember you calling Bill Clinton a draft dodger

          • Commander_Chico

            Bill Clinton was a draft dodger. OK?

      • Commander_Chico

        That is talking about blacks, not relevant.

        • jim_m

          Yes it is. Whites are over represented. Don;t go crying that illegals are over represented when I just produced data that says that the largest race in the US is actually over represented in the combat troops and that minorities are under represented.

          No matter what you are going to say it does not negate the fact that White men are shouldering the burden of national security in far greater numbers than anyone else.

          Minorities go into the military for job training. Whites go into it to defend their nation.

          • Brucehenry

            Yes according to you whites are so much more virtuous than those freeloading chiseling minorities always looking for an angle or a handout.

          • jim_m

            Nope. I just don’t accept the lying sob story from you and CHico that minorities are being exploited by the military. It’s a lie and even when presented with the evidence you refuse to admit that.

          • Brucehenry

            Me? I haven’t expressed an opinion about the statistics or what they mean. I was just mocking your unsupported and borderline-racist assertion regarding the relative virtuous patriotism of whites vs minorities.

            On second thought, it’s not really borderline.

          • jim_m

            I made no such assertion about virtue. I simply stated who is dying for their country and who is not. I laid to rest the lie that minorities are being exploited and dying for the benefit of whites who sit back and don’t do anything.

          • Brucehenry

            First, the notion that any argument you have ever made has “laid to rest” absolutely anything is laughable.

            Second, NO ONE CLAIMED that anyone has been exploited while anyone else sat back and did nothing. Chico said Mexican-Americans were over-represented as to combat deaths over the last 50 years. You seem to have demonstrated he was mistaken, but he made no assertion that anyone had been exploited to the benefit of anyone else.

            THEN you vomit this up: “Minorities go into the military for job training. Whites go into it to defend their country.”

            Now, some people may not read those two sentences as a knock on minorities. I don’t know who those some people might be, but when you make a statement like that it SURE LOOKS LIKE you’re saying that minorities DON’T join up to defend the good old USA but simply to, you know, “get free stuff” — like job training. In other words they’re NOT patriots but simply selfish, unlike the virtuous white people whose sole motive is defense of the American Way Of Life. You know those white people who forego any training while in the military for skills they may use afterwards and simply focus on combat skills.

            Anyway it looks like that to me.

          • jim_m

            Hey if you are saying that I implied some sort of racist conclusion then you better play fair and admit that Chico’s comment was also a claim that minorities were being exploited and differentially put in harms way.

          • Brucehenry

            Nope. He didn’t, and you can’t quote a phrase, or a group of sentences, where he did. He said Mexican-Americans had a disproportionate share of combat deaths in the last 50 years, an assertion you have disputed and may have refuted, but made no claims of exploitation.

            YOU, on the other hand, said that minorities join up to receive job training while whites join up out of a sense of patriotism.

          • jim_m

            OK, so blacks are represented in the military far in excess of their percentage in the general population. Yet they disproportionately are not involved in combat operations. It lends itself to the conclusion that they are involved in technical operations that get them skills for post military career.

            I am sure that many minorities enter the military out of pride for their country. BUt there is a reason that they deliberately avoid units with direct combat responsibility. Don’t tell me that they are now being exploited by the military NOT putting them in harms way.

            Stick it Bruce. Take your racist Hispanic friend and get out of here.

          • jim_m

            He said Mexican-Americans had a disproportionate share of combat deaths in the last 50 years,

            I absolutely refuted that claim and so has RM. Read the fucking thread you jackass. You are so willing to hate America and call everyone racist because they are white you miss the racist Hispanic calling for a Hispanic state here and pushing data that he has basically made up in his head.

          • Commander_Chico

            You didn’t refute jack shit. You did not produce any stats on Hispanic combat deaths vs. the Hispanic population.

            I produced three sources, including the American War Library referencing Vietnam combat deaths.

            You provided one link comparing black vs. white enlistment which was irrelevant.

          • jim_m

            You dumbass. I took your stats and compared them to stats of the general population. If you can’t do the fucking math I don’t know what to say.

          • Commander_Chico

            That is a white nationalist statement.

          • jim_m

            No it isn’t. It is a refutation of your bigoted racism. I demonstrated that your whiny bullshit that minorities were over represented amongst military casualties was a bunch of BS. Now you want to claim that because you were wrong and I proved it that somehow I am racist for calling you out as a fraud? Back off bigot.

          • jim_m

            The man spouting racist Hispanic slogans has no room for claiming anything else here is racist. You wouldn’t know racism if it hit you over the head.

        Of course I have links:

        http://www.americanwarlibrary.com/vietnam/vwc10.htm

        Thus we think it is safe to say that Hispanic-Americans were over-represented among V’nam casualties-an estimated 5.5% of the casualties against 4.5% of the 1970 population. These casualties came largely from California and Texas with lesser numbers from Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Florida and New York and some from many states across the country.

        http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/19/iraq-war-changed-latinos_n_1158488.html

        The total number of Hispanics killed in action until February 2009 was 450, according to United States Military Casualty Statistics, compiled by the Congressional Research Service.

        By the end of the war, unofficial counts placed the total number at 477.

        That is a little less than 11 percent of the total of casualties, reflecting their participation in the conflict and, according to the same source, surpassing the number of African American soldiers killed, which stands at 9.6 percent.

        Among Marines, the rate was even higher. Of “969 Marines killed in Iraq, 39 were African Americans and 139 Hispanics,” or 14 percent of the total.

        http://www.counterpunch.org/2004/08/17/mexico-fiercely-opposes-the-iraq-war-but-mexicans-are-dying-there-every-week/

        I guess you don’t check the names on the casualty reports – it’s obvious.

        • Vagabond661

          How (and why) in holy hell are illegals joining the military?

          • jim_m

            W signed an exec order saying that service would be a fast track to citizenship. The program was started in 2008.

          • Vagabond661

            Well the next question would be how many illegals are in the prison system. Bet that number is north of 17%.

          • Retired military

            Actually it is about 33%

        • jim_m

          REally? That’s your proof?

          LOL

          Hispanics make up 17% of the US population. So they are seeing 14% of casualties? So they are seeing 17.7% fewer casualties than their numbers in the general population would anticipate.

          On the other hand, blacks make up 11.8% of the general population and have 9.6 % of the casualties. So they see only 18.6% fewer casualties than would be anticipated by their percent of the general population

          Meanwhile, Whites comprise 74.3% of the general population and are 79% of the casualties. So whites bear 106% of the burden.

          Take your racist lies and go away.

          • PerceiveToBeWise

            ummm – you may want to check your sources. 17%+11.8%+74.3% = 103.1% and you haven’t even counted Asians and American Indians or other minorities. – no bone to pick with the jest of the argument – just saying you may wish to recheck your sources as that slip would normally blow a whole in a debate and open yourself up to all sorts of side issues such as falsehood of facts thus discounting your position.

          • jim_m

            They are admittedly, different sources.

            I think few, if any dispute the 11.8% of blacks. The Hispanics will be in the neighborhood of what I posted. If anything the white population number will reduce, meaning that the disproportion of white people in combat troops is even greater than I showed.

            If anything it would therefore underestimate the degree to which whites are over represented and strengthen my argument.

          • PerceiveToBeWise

            Good answer and yes the math is in your favor as are the demographic changes – I actually think the minorities are higher in percentage and white’s lower but even that is from different sources. In CA which is one of the most populous states, whites are now a minority for the first time since statehood. http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/07/08/us-usa-california-latino-idUSKCN0PI2V820150708

            And in CA – they don’t join up even though they have a staggering 34.6% unemployment rate in the 16-19 age category and 20.2% unemployment in the 16-24 category of CA. Here is a link for the future showing the red states are the ones who support the military through enlistment

        • Retired military

          Hey DUMBFUCK

          From YOUR ARTICLE

          The DoD database contains no info on Hispanic-Amer casualties. Hispanics can be of any race, but the 1980 census revealed that only 2.6% regard themselves as black. In a massive sampling of the database we were able to establish that between 5.0 and 6.0> had Hispanic surnames. These were Mexican, Puerto Rican,
          Cuban and other Latino-Americans with ancestries based in Central and South Amer. The 1970 census which we are using as our V’nam era population base, estimated Hispanic-Americans at 4.5% of the US population.

          So they didnt go by actual statistics other than guessing the origin of the name. My name is German so do you think that if I had been killed during WW2 they would have put me down in the Nazi statistics ?

          From your 2nd link

          Their relative participation in the armed forces grew markedly during these years, jumping from 4 percent in 1983 to 9.5 percent in 2001, to 10 percent at the beginning of the war, and, finally, 12 percent when it ended, getting thus closer to the percentage of Latinos among the general population, which according to the 2010 US Census is 16 percent.

          So wait you are telling me that with 16% of the population that Hispanics made up 14% of the casualties? Gee. You really know how to prove your point. NOT.

    Good for Trump. This issue has been simmering for years and he’s finally bringing making it an issue if not the issue.

    I don’t care about his contributions to the Clintons…..every major corp has had to make “contributions” to the ruling class – the price of admission and all that.

    As for being conservative…..who aside from Cruz really is. Walker perhaps, who I do like.
    The Republican party? No effin way, they’re primarily democrat lites.

    And if we’re going to have distractions, Trump is the distraction to have.

      With Trump gone It will be back to asking candidates a question about X and they say “really good question. Let me tell you what I think about it. (insert stump speech about A)

      • PerceiveToBeWise

        LOL – oh that’s cynical but oh so true most of the time. Especially “as seen on TV” gotcha partisan lame stream media who pitch softball questions to Dem candidates and send loaded skewed questions with false statements embedded within the question to GOP candidates – it is so obvious.

        The easy way out is to (insert stump speech about A) as to the answer entirely skipping confronting the reporter. Trump doesn’t do that but fights back. It works for him (though not to the Dem base but they would never vote GOP anyway). It didn’t work so good for Rand Paul though he pushed back anyway and has worked on the way he did it in the past (shhh moment) to be more nuanced when he pushes back from absurd loaded questions that imply stances that are not correct.

        I like both the brashness of Trump and the now nuanced push back from Rand. Its about time some of the GOP got some spine to push back no matter if it is by placidity or piquantly in answering the questions instead of ducking the issue with default “platform A” answers.

    • PerceiveToBeWise

      To find who is “democrat lite” look to who they attack – its Cruz, Paul, Trump and Carson who is an outsider through and through. The rest are either RINO or as you said “democrat lite” with the exception of Walker. The others that may qualify not being “democrat lite” but are not in serous contention as of yet to be attacked.

      Because wanting Mexicans to live in a Mexico that is not full of corruption and drug crime and where Mexican citizens have an opportunity to get good educations, have upward mobility and a thriving middle class without having to illegally cross the border into the US and take lower paying and lower skilled jobs because they are here illegally – wanting all that for Mexicans is just hateful.

            I may like this boycott of this company and dislike that boycott of that company, but Trump proposes a US “boycott of Mexico.” Now do you think if the US stopped trading with Mexico and stopped tourism to Mexico that the lovely things Jim imagines Trump wishes for Mexico would materialize?

          • LiberalNightmare

            Why is it OUR responsibility to make lovely things happen for mexico?

          • Brucehenry

            It’s not, but Jim is pretending that Trump’s racist schtick is because he (Trump) wishes Mexico to have a thriving middle class, or something.

          • LiberalNightmare

            And your pretending that Trumps “schtick” is racist.

          • Brucehenry

            Even if you think, or pretend to think, that calling the people Mexico “sends” here rapists, drugrunners, and criminals isn’t racist, the point is that a US boycott of Mexico will most definitely NOT result in the end of corruption and the sudden expansion of a thriving middle class and the consequent end to an incentive to sneak over the border.

          • LiberalNightmare

            So there are no mexican rapists, drug runners or criminals?

            You want to borrow my flag?

          • Brucehenry

            Your definition of “pretty much” is pretty loose, lol.

            Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They bring crime. They bring drugs. They’re rapists…”

            “They” bring crime. “They” being the people “Mexico sends.” In other words, all illegal immigrants. “They” — all illegal immigrants — bring crime, bring drugs, and are rapists. THAT’S what Trump said.

            In contrast, you asked me a ridiculous question “So there are no Mexican criminals, drug runners, or rapists?” To which the only reply is “Of course there are.”

            You are, or have been in the past, much too clever to think, sincerely, that those things were equivalent. I lose respect for you as a snarker when you stoop so low as to pretend that was a real gotcha. You know it wasn’t.

          • LiberalNightmare

            1, Every single mexican citizen that crosses the border illegally is a criminal.
            2. Some of those criminals are also rapists.
            3. Some of those criminals are also drug runners

            Breaking that law makes them criminals, but it doesn’t mean they “bring crime.”

            Do they leave the crime of being an illegal alien on the other side of the border?

          • Brucehenry

            They break that law but don’t “bring crime” in the sense Trump was implying — that if you live in a neighborhood or a city with lots of illegal immigrants you are in increased danger of becoming a crime victim.

            You KNOW that’s what he meant. AND you know what I meant.

            Another Knight of the Golden Gotcha, like Sir Jim, who has once again failed in his quest.

          • LiberalNightmare

            So illegal aliens are criminals, they committed a crime to be here, but it wasn’t a crime-crime?

            And as far as Trumps implication that if you live in a neighborhood or a city with lots of illegal immigrants you are in increased danger of becoming a crime victim, its starting to look like he’s right there too.

            You’re not this dumb.

            A five-year-old story from FOX doesn’t mean it’s “starting to look like” anything. But your link does demonstrate that lots of immigrants living away from the border, like in Illinois, doesn’t mean there will be increased crime.

            And it’s no surprise that the Feds charge illegal immigrants with illegal immigration in border counties. Or that that fact would mean there are lots more federal charges filed there.

            Why do you think I come to Wizbang? I’m interested in how people who have different assumptions than I have present their views. I’m not really hung up on language, not too much anyway. “Illegal” vs “undocumented”? What’s the difference?

            I do prefer “marriage equality” to “same-sex marriage” but I don’t disengage when someone insists on using the latter.

            “According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.”

            “the already stratospheric aggregate crime totals would be even higher if crimes by many illegal aliens who are not in the fingerprint database were included”.

            Yes Bruce they do bring crime. It is against the law to enter the US illegally. it is against the law not to report income or to use someone else’s ID illegally. They do bring crime.

            Notice that Trump didn’t say all were rapists nor that all were drugrunners nor that all were criminals.

          • Brucehenry

            No indeed he said that “some” — HE ASSUMES — are “good people.” He’s SURE about the raping part, but he ASSUMES that a handful are good people, just by pure law of averages, I guess.

            It is undeniable that some of the people from Mexico are racists, some are drugrunners and the overwhelming majority are illegal hence they are violating the law and hence they are criminals.

          • jim_m

            People want there to not be drugs, crime and illegals pouring over the border. In order for that to happen Mexico needs everything I said. Either you want that or you don’t/

          • Brucehenry

            It is true that if Mexico enjoyed all the things you mention that there would be drastically less illegal immigration from there.

            However the context of your remark was a reply to LN in which he demanded “proof” that Trump did not dislike Mexico or Mexicans. You seemed to claim that Trump has said the things he said, including his call for US boycott of Mexico, because HE wanted those things for Mexico. The only things I ever heard him say is that we should build a huge fence, make them pay for it, and then boycott.

            But if I have misunderstood what you were saying I regret it.

          • jim_m

            You lack the wit to understand most things. We all end up regretting it.

        • jim_m

          Won’t affect it either way

          • Brucehenry

            Nah, losing its largest trading partner will be inconsequential for Mexico, no biggie.

          • jim_m

            won’t affect the corruption or the drug cartels. Boycotts are infamous for not working so it is unlikely that even if people subscribed to it that it would work.

            How many cars are built in Mexico? DO you really think that Americans will stop purchasing the Cadillac SRX, Chevy Silverado, Dodge Journey and Ram pickup, Fiat 500, Ford Fiesta and Fusion, Honda Fit and HR-V, Lincoln MKZ, Mazda 2 and 3, Nissan Sentra, Versa and van, Toyota Tacoma and the VW Golf and Jetta? All made in Mexico.

            The boycott is a stupid idea. It would never work. So even if a bunch of consumers decided to adhere to it in some ways it won’t work in most.

            Millions of Jew still boycott Germany. I’m sure that someday the German economy will rise out of the ashes of WWII despite that.

          • Brucehenry

            Right. Stupid idea. Of Trump’s.

          • jim_m

            All boycotts are basically stupid ideas. That’s why you see the left coming out with a new one every week.

          • Brucehenry

            Yeah like the one of Disney World because they extended insurance benefits to gay domestic partners. Or the one of JC Penney’s because they used Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson.

            Oh wait those weren’t by “the left” and those both failed.

            Oh yeah there was the one of Sea World by liberals oh wait that DID work.

          • jim_m

            I didn’t say that they were exclusively from the left. Do you not speak English?

          • Brucehenry

            Yes, yes I do, and I get what you mean when you write plain English prose, too.

    Trump Says He Heroically Avoided Capture in Vietnam.

    AMES, IOWA —Presidential candidate Donald Trump revealed a little-known episode of personal heroism from his youth on Saturday, telling an Iowa audience that he narrowly avoided capture in Vietnam by remaining in the United States for the duration of the war.

    “The Cong were after me,” Trump said, visibly stirred by the memory. “And then, just in the nick of time, I got my deferment.”

    The former reality-show star said he had never shared his record as a war hero before because “I don’t like to boast.”

    • jim_m

      Bill Clinton did it by hiding out in the USSR. Nothing like hanging out with our enemies to endear him to Chico.

      • Commander_Chico

        Bill Clinton made the USA stronger during his presidency even if he was a draft dodger.

        • Jwb10001

          So let try to get my head around your thinking. Clinton is a draft dodging, Iraq bombing chicken hawk, but he’s a-ok. Obama, is a death from the air American citizen killing chicken hawk, you voted for him. McCain is a decorated war hero, he’s a crazy war monger. You are nuts.

          • Commander_Chico

            There is no perfect president. A presidency has to be judged on balance, did it make the country stronger or weaker.

            Even Nixon looks pretty good now, and Carter looks damn good after Bush II and Obama.

            The USA got stronger during the Clinton years – fiscally, economically, diplomatically.

            McCain was not always a warmonger, he was against Clinton’s bombing of Serbia. I volunteered on his 2000 campaign and donated $500. In 2008, his choice of crazy twit Sarah Palin disqualified him from my vote. Since then he has become a bitter warmonger.

            See, things are relative and change over time. Complicated world.
