Trump's re-election depends on building the wall

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday's show, I explained why the future of Trump's presidency rests upon his ability to build the Mexican border wall by 2020.

Trump made the building the wall the highlight of his campaign platform, and chants of "build that wall" could be heard at Trump rallies across the United States. 

Trump's agenda has run into opposition from the media, Democrats, and establishment Republicans.

Little progress has been made in the construction of the wall. But that may be about to change, as I explain in my report

I acknowledged that Sharia arbitration has been operating informally for decades in my original post,.

There is literally nothing to support your slippery slope argument where availability means mandatory use is imminent. They’re there because they’re an option that some people want to use, as is their prerogative. It’s better to have a choice as to whether you use it, rather than be forced one way or the other by the government, is it not?

Andrew the worst parts of that graph cover Obamas first 2 years. did you even look at it? "

What dd it do in those first two years? Bottomed out from the 2008 crash, and bounced back. That indicates Obama successfully caught a falling knife (that GWB dropped) and tossed it back up again. The crash began under Bush and the recovery happened under Obama.

By the way, Drew, next time you should actually look at links before commenting. One of the two links I provided didn’t go anywhere (cant’ directly link the BLS data), and you didn’t seem to notice (in fact, where are all your rightey buddies, who would be there in a nanosecond to call out the leftie who can’t use the internet?)

So… we know you’re not actually looking at the evidence I provided which makes your commentary on it trivial. (correct link is here, https://www.bls.gov/webapps/legacy/cesbtab1.htm, click “seasonal adjusted, total private”, right column third box down and retrieve data).

No. But that’s not going to happen anyway.

James Stallone..Was it fear mongering back in approx..2006 ..when pro sharia law creatures tried to force it into Ontario? That’s a fact..and I know things like you want to erase facts and history.. "

Nobody tried forcing sharia law into Ontario. What they tried was making it an option for arbitration regarding out-of-court settlements, formalizing something that’s been happening informally for many years. Sharia arbitration only occurs if both parties want it and being mandatory was never once on the table. It’s basically just another option for those that want it. The government really doesn’t (and shouldn’t) care how you arrive at an out of court settlement as long as the process is conducted fairly.

I’m not sure how some people decided having an available option (one that was, and is, informally available whether or not it’s formally sanctioned), suddenly turns into mandatory and ubiquitous, but that’s the beauty of the wild eyed paranoia, I suppose.

Robert Greeley,

It’s amazing how easily led you are with conservative fear mongering.

The Canadian government is going to be issuing the Quran to every single Canadian before the end of the year.

Read it, know it, live it.

Again, you believe fear mongering.

James Stallone..If you don’t want sharia law in Canada why do you support trudeau who is forcing sharia law into Canada?.

Robert Greeley,

No and your question is moronic, because that’s never going to happen.

You are so weak minded that you actually believe the fear mongering.

Thanks for posting this stuff.

You saved me a lot of work to prove Drew wrong yet again with the actual facts.

Drew, take a look at this https://data.bls.gov/pdq/SurveyOutputServlet

Obama created 12 million private jobs in the five years since that article was published.

“Drew Wakariuk commented 8 hours ago
Andrew sorry but the part time thing was Obamas doing , none of your left wing excuses. "

Did you look at the graph? Obama was elected just before the end of that second grey bar, when part-time jobs had already outrun full time. The ratio recovered throughout Obama’s term.

“Drew Wakariuk commented 8 hours ago
Look at Obamas first few years LMAO!
”https://www.propublica.org/article/what-is-obamas-actual-record-on-creating-jobs">https://www.propublica.org/article/what-is-obamas-actual-record-on-creating-jobs "

The Great Recession started under Bush and lasted about two years before it turned around. The first year of a presidency is mostly leftover momentum from a predecessor, since it takes times for policies to kick in. Obama inherited a collapsing economy from Bush, whereas Trump inherited a booming one from Obama (and, interestingly, it appears to have actually slowed slightly under Trump – it’s still growing, but not as as a year ago. Unemployment actually increased in August). By the time that article was published the economy was already recovering. It would indeed take another couple years to fully recover, but that’s a comment on the scale of the Recession.

James Stallone….I don’t have to prove anything to the likes of you or Andrew”

I doubt you could prove it to yourself if you had to either. No worry, Trump fans tend not to be worried about actual evidence. Breitbart’s list, by the way, is heavily focused on things that the President doesn’t control, for instance the aforementioned employment numbers, or the stock market. The Dow has been breaking records regularly since it surpassed its pre-recession high in 2013, for example… so although it’s continued to do so, that’s not Trump’s doing but a continuation of something that was already happening. When you look at direct achievements he’s got very little of note.

Andrew Obama bailed out industries, Trump has not, Now make up some phony reason to not factor that in.

Andrew sorry but the part time thing was Obamas doing , none of your left wing excuses. ANd the links you put showed many jobs as temporary and lower paying part time jobs. And what makes left wing links so great as opposed to Breitbart? The left lies all the time and you know it. LMAO!

Andrew
http://www.factcheck.org/2012/06/obamas-economic-sleight-of-hand/ try private sector jobs , creating government jobs does not count in any meaningful way for the economy and you know it. Trump has created jobs before his first year is done , Obama lost many in his first year and lost even more his second. And lots of Obamas were part time.
