In Mexico and Arizona, Americans saw “President Trump”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

In Mexico, Trump looked utterly presidential. Now we’ve seen it, and the mainstream media can’t make us un-see it.

Trump told the Mexicans he would build that wall. President Pena Nieto agreed, and even appeared to make symbolic or rhetorical concessions to Trump, on the border and trade agreements.

In a single visit, for a few hours, Trump managed to move the needle.

Then Trump flew to Arizona for a massive rally. His speech about immigration was longer than an hour, as it often is. The guy is 70, but he has the energy of a 40 year old. (Hillary Clinton is 69, but as her closest aide Huma Abedin says, it’s important that Clinton has her daily nap…)

As I show you clips of Trump's speech, ask yourself: Is there anything here that could possibly be called radical, let alone racist?

Is a wall radical? Israel has one. So does Mexico. And shouldn’t America (and Canada) have the right to choose who immigrates, based on language skills, job skills, cultural skills?

If you can, show me the racism and the fascism in Trump's message.

Because I see something very different...

NEXT: For more on this topic, Democrat and journalist Mickey Kaus ("The Kaus Files") checks in from Los Angeles.

THEN: For a round up of Alberta political news, I turn to broadcaster Dave Rutherford.

We discuss the PCs trying to derail Jason Kenney, Brian Jean’s “joke” about Notley, the by-election in Stephen Harper’s old riding and more.

FINALLY: Your feedback to me about last night’s show!

Just ,’ Imagine’ a big long Wall being built —-that employs thousands of the people and pays them a wage that is just a ’ Dream’ —in their Country. Just ‘Imagine’ how popular a President could be- if he could create tens of thousands of good paying jobs and virtually eliminate the murderous drug trade in Border cities – in one fell SWOOP. Mexicans will Never know —if their American friends vote for Hillary.

There are 12 million illegals in the states. I believe that it was Ben Shapiro that quoted those numbers. That,s the size of Pittsburgh. There must be a number of the mexican illegals that are probably wanted in mexico. I don,t know if the mexican authorities will be too please with more prisoners. I also think that the law abiding mexicans can,t be too pleased with these bads guys giving mexicans a bad name. So will they vote for Trump. That,s a big vote. Also I think The san fran QB is going to vote for Trump. He says he wants significant change.

Sean Penson your version of sanity is a lot different than most people.

Trump’s Wall is already partly done, and has been for years. If something is not done to curb the immigration problem and end any thought of North American Union, the problems in Europe will be visited on Canada’s borders. We will wake up one day to see the Canada-US border erased and vicious gangs roaming our streets. Good-bye to Canada and all that we hold dear.

Dallas said, "“Imagine there’s no countries” is the philosophy of a cow. "

And the globalists. Probably a relation between cows and the globalists.

Somehow the concept of border control has become “radical”. “Imagine there’s no countries” is the philosophy of a cow.

Donald Trump seems to be deliberately inconsistent with what he plans on doing with the illegal immigrants. One moment he wants to deport them all, and the next moment he wants to soften his approach. Any chance somebody from the rebel can get an interview with somebody from the Trump team? I would love to see this happen.

I will so enjoy watching Penson and Stephenson go mad, when Trump gets in. Listen to them, their heads are already starting to spin.

Sean Penson said, "How? By lashing out at Hispanics and other minority communities? "

This is the attitude of the socialists in the US and Canada.

Trump only ever said he wanted to keep on the illegal immigrants, but the socialists LIE by claiming Trump is “lashing out at Hispanics and other minority communities.”

It is a pure effing lie, but the socialists/democrats and the socialist liars in Canada, like Sean, keep claiming what Trump said what he never said.

Socialists in Canada and the US have been proving themselves to be lacking any morals or ethic. They lie with an ease that only comes from practice and a love for all thing dirty.

I wish we had a Trump in Canada.
commented 2016-09-01 23:21:36 -0400
The very FACT that Americans or Canadians are forced to feel that they must Justify, their reasons for being PATRIOTIC , just goes to show that , our so-called Leader have a very different Goal.

How much money did we send to North Korea this year ? Why?

Securing the border and enforcing existing immigration law is not bigoted or lashing out at minority communities.
Trump’s visit to Mexico was an act of genius. He went into a supposedly hostile enviroment and carried the event off in a commanding fashion. He looked and acted like he is already the POTUS.
If you want to talk about an embarrassment you need look no farther than Junior’s trip to China.
Trump has beaten back the MSM and seized the intiative. His next outreach will be to the minority black community in Detroit.
Meanwhile Hillary’s poor health is starting to manifest itself and she is in hiding because she is too afraid to answer questions about her emails. Hillary’s poll numbers are falling and Trump is running rings around her.
Poor Penson and Kelly they must be having kittens.

YOU make a mockery of the intelligence of Minorities——Sean Penson Do you really think that people more Pigmented than You are less Intelligent? You must support Hillary. The Democrats have been Using and Abusing ANYONE that they consider to be less than them on the evolutionary scale for decades. Now the people have an alternative ! An Alternative that scares the living Lucifer out of Every Godamned One of Them.

How? By lashing out at Hispanics and other minority communities?

He made a mockery out of his visit to Mexico, and is a major foreign policy embarrassment.

For peace and sanity, Hillary must be President.

Just wondering—— If all the USA loot spend on this pseudo War on Drugs was spent on a WALL – it could be built twice as wide and doubly tall. And still not cost a Penny-
commented 2016-09-01 22:22:03 -0400
I think the Wall would be real cheap if built with Mexican wages , double Mexican wages— - No?
commented 2016-09-01 22:05:05 -0400
Andrew Stephenson commented – "so if this is “president Trump”, America is unimpressed. "

Only an arrogant ass would presume to speak for what Americans should think – sanctimonious preaching from the frozen north who depend on American commerce is one of the shameful personality traits of Canada’s self-righteous elitist political culture

Ezra, great show as always but just one little negative issue of note and that is the nap. I think you are getting a little obsessed with people like Hillary who could perform much better after having a little snooze. It’s not like she can stay awake 24 hours a day. Even Donald was looking pretty haggard there for a while so maybe he squeezed in a nap or two. If this topic comes up again you could be looking at accusations of napophobia. Sorry to be such a downer but I missed my snooze today and am getting a little cranky.

All of Canada——— G D P in the RED

All of you leftard provinces , how are you going to help Canada with you public sector economy

I never liked Trump, until now. Maybe envy. But I know he’ll start working on day one whereas Hillary will have a 6 month vacation, like Justin is.
commented 2016-09-01 20:53:06 -0400
- The polls were questioned & suddenly Trump goes from trailing Clinton to being tied or leading. I’m thinking he pulled ahead of her about the time Sanders got screwed & has been leading since. Hillary is too sick to travel anywhere & is now stuck – she can’t admit it & can’t act like a president. Trump looks presidential & now is talking & acting like one.

- Canada could be such a prosperous country if we could just get rid of “progressive” governments. Alberta will kick out the NDP in the next election, united right or not. Ontario seems screwed with Patrick Brown leading the PC’s – we’ll see. The federal Liberals can be defeated if the Conservatives get a strong leader in place.

He also changed his story on migration about four times, so if this is “president Trump”, America is unimpressed.

How much is he paying to fly the peanut gallery around?

Gotta build something to create jobs. If you can’t build pipelines to bring in fuel to provide for the People -- then you may as build WALLS to keep the people Out,
commented 2016-09-01 20:06:43 -0400
And we also saw sociopath Hillary who previously said that Trump could not do this sort of thing , suddenly decry it when he does that sort of thing. Without being paid off first like what happens when she actually does this sort of thing.
Can any of you progressive sheep tell me what Hillary did in her state department tenure to suggest she would be good at this like she thinks? She never achieved any peace , only death.
