Election 2018-The Aftermath.

My Recent Posts

I am surprised as everyone the results of Election Day 2018. I had a feeling that there would be consequences as to Donald Trump's words, especially calling people names and acting like a bully. When I watched yesterday's news conference at the White House where he treated members of the Press was disrespect and displayed terrible behavior. Trump has proven that he isn't fit to be President and not a leader. He cannot acknowledge that there was no win as he claims. Trump lost and was building up GOP candidates who were going to take the House and it backfired. 

CNN Reporter Jim Acosta had his Press Credentials revoked by this "Leader" because he is doing his job and not dancing to the tune that Trump is playing. Disrespect was leveled also at a Reporter from PBS and at April Ryan. I refuse to call this man President because his behavior for the past 2 years embarrasses America and sets a horrible example to young people, especially children especially demonizing People of Color. He has done this to both Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum referring to them in a racist, derogatory manner. 

Guess what Trump Supporters? I have been telling you for the past 3 years what kind of man Trump is and you are seeing 1st hand the real Donald John Trump! His actions speak for him; He is a racist and his deflection of the PBS Reporter's question by calling her a racist when she asked him about his nationalistic tendencies that caters to White Nationalists and not knowing Rapper Lil John. The man is a liar!! Trump Supporters: Your "Leader" is a sham and him not taking responsibility for his actions.

Coming from NYC like Mr. Trump does have a history of Racism and you can no longer ignore it. It's time Trump Supporters to really, really look at yourselves and see Donald Trump for who he really is. Keep on ignoring me, demeaning me, and making excuses. I am telling the truth and that display of a lack of class is the beginning of the end to Donald Trump's Presidency.

Wow. I thought Jim Acosta was disrespectful and being an asshole. I thought President Trump conducted himself with grace and quite alot of self-control. Jim Acosta needs his ass kicked!
 
President Trump grows stronger every day. He will be re-elected!

Had any every day person put his hand on a White House intern like Acosta did they'd be in jail awaiting a bail hearing. 
 
Nothing less should be visited upon Acosta. 
 
His credentials should be permanently revoked.

Coming from the resident racist, that is funny.   Please cite quotes of where he referred to them in a racist, derogatory manner.
 
Acosta wasn't doing his job and he isn't a reporter.  He was hogging the floor and grandstanding and then shoved an intern who tried to take the microphone away.
 
Your absolute hatred colors your vision on everything.  It is staggering.  I can't imagine how angry you must always be in the world you live in - it isn't the world the rest of us live in.

Acosta accosted the president and is now an official fake news yellow journalist. No news there
 
As for the Midterms I was not the least bit surprised, the polls were correct this time, the democrats took the House and the republicans retained control of the Senate. There were a few races for governor that were somewhat unpredictable but overall it was a bit boring overall.

Curiously, Acosta and CNN are apparently saying that the incident where Acosta pulled his left arm down on top of the arm of the female attempting to remove the microphone from him "didn't happen," or that the video "was faked."
 
Nonsense, of course.
 
On "The View," the ignoranimouses there said that the WOMAN should be arrested for assault!
 
If it were me as president, and Acosta accosted me that way, i would have been far less polite.  i may have said something along the lines of "release the microphone and sit down immediately, Mr. Acosta, or i will have these lovely Marines physically remove you from this room."
 
Trump, IMO, was FAR too polite and gracious to that mic hog; Acosta seems to be angling for his own show on CNN, which i hope he gets ONE DAY before CNN goes down the tubes.
 
i think that Trump was far too kind by ordering his press credentials removed "until further notice." 
 
Yet CNN is doubling down on stupid - so, what's new?

I thought revoking Acosta's press pass to the WH shows weakness. 
 
The exchange (between Trump and Acosta) was fine. You have two hard-headed guys being jerks to each other. I wish Trump could be more Cheney-esque at times in terms of answering questions. Cheney always gave answers, he might insult the reporter back in the process. But he's always give an answer. It reminded me of a bulldog. 
 
Trump evaded Acosta's question and then revoked his press pass. It looks bad. He should reinstate Acosta's press pass and put a 6 foot 5 inch, 230 lb guy in to manage the mic next time.  
Cullen Kehoe Added Nov 8, 2018 - 10:33pm
I don't completely disagree with the author. But the sentiment "I refuse to call him president"...sorry that's juvenile. He is the president. 
 
He's not a moral, good person. I agree. Whether or not he's racist, I don't know. I wish those leveling that charge would present some REAL evidence. Not this, "Trump said something which was fine but he MEANT something else...therefore he's a racist". (ex: Nationalism=white nationalism)
 
That's what I'd call no evidence. 
 
The 'sh-- countries' thing, nobody can even confirm he said that. They were in a closed door meeting talking about a DACA deal, one of the Dem's sitting next to him claims he heard him say that, others in the room said they didn't hear anything. By the way, leaking that to the press ('sh-- countries' alleged comment) sunk the DACA deal they were trying to hash out.
 
It just shows the Democrats don't care about the DACA kids. They are just pawns in their overall political game. And they were pawns the Dem's were willing sacrifice that day (and no new DACA deal that I know of has even been worked out, so those DACA kids are still in legal limbo).

Another agreement JT, I just realized it a year ago, if you did, you didn't stand up against it.  This is the "fake news" and the "some people in the media are enemies of the American People" that trump has been talking about, and the entire point of my article about "The golden age of yellow journalism"
 
I am sure we have a slew of differences, but truth is truth, some things just have to be honest about, some folks to the left would never say what you just said.  Much respect for that

hindsight is easy, but the way I think it would have been perfectly handled would have been for the WH to contact CNN and state, "Jim Acosta has consistently grandstanded and broken decorum.  He asked a question then  a follow up, then wanted to dominate the press conference.  You can continue to have him cover the WH all you want, but be advised, he will not be called on ever again.  If you wish to ask legitimate questions, then you will put someone else in.  It is your decision as to how you wish to manage this"

If you get your news from CNN or any of the mainstream outlets, you'll have it all wrong.  You should listen to Scott Horton, What Really Happened and other alternative news sources if you really want to know what is going on.  And, listen to one of Trumps speeches and then listen to how the news reports it.  If you can't see the BS, don't know what to say, just keep being surprised I guess.

Cullen-
Trump evaded Acosta's question and then revoked his press pass.
 
Acosta started out NOT by asking a question, but by "challenging" the president.
If it were me, i might have replied, "Jim, this is a press conference where i take some of my valuable time to answer press questions.  You're making a statement.  What's the question?"
 
Or maybe better, "You picked the wrong place to "challenge" me.  Ask your question and sit down."
 
And when Acosta said "There's a caravan coming, and you say it's an invasion," i loved Trump's answer; first, he said "we have a difference of opinion," then after Acosta said "But they're hundreds of miles away" and Trump thanked him for the info(personally, i'd've been a helluva lot more sarcastic to the knucklehead, like Trump was uninformed) then said, "Look, i'll be president and you go back and take care of CNN, then maybe you'll have better ratings," i thought that was perfect.
 
In short, i think Trump did exactly the right thing in pulling the pass; it would have been better, i think, to have a couple Marines toss him out on his ass after telling him, "Please resist; give us an excuse."
 
If someone comes to my house and insults me, i'm throwing his ass out and not inviting him back - AND letting him know that if he TRIES to come back, he's getting a beatdown to cement the lesson. 
 
Did you notice?  When Trump told Acosta to give up the microphone - what was it, three times? - and was ignored, Trump stepped away from the lectern and headed toward Acosta, whereupon he FINALLY gave up the mic.  Looked scared, too, the buttwipe.

Gregory,
 
Seven Governorships ain't bad.  Illinois, New Mexico, Michigan, Maine, Kansas, Nevada and the sweetest victory of all, the humiliating defeat of the union-busting corporatist, the demon Governor Scott Walker.
 
Do you remember the abject pain and agony of good liberals in Wisco after the hostile takeover by republican extremists?  Huge celebration.  Governorships are further testimony that rank and file Americans, especially young people are coming together to defeat the republican menace.
 
Never give up the fight.  We can counter the totalitarian edicts of the monster and his party of scorched Earth extraction interests in the courts.  California is doing just that by ensuring that mileage standards for vehicles will remain unchanged.  We can block cronyism in the form of off-shore drilling that is not approved by the States.  We will band together and fight this menace with passion.
 
It would be fun to know how many voters cast ballots that were better than 80% democratic vs. how many voters cast ballots that were better than 80% republican.  Now that would be a popular vote worth tallying.  I would thumbnail it at probably very nearly 60% of voters are tending democratic.  Like I have been telling my friends, in 2020 there will be two million new young voters.  In my city we had lines stretching for hundreds of yards winding around the office of the Registrar of Voters.  This is unheard of.  Our story was repeated all around the nation.  You can bet that these were new voters who wanted to be a part of the movement to take Trump down.  Keep the faith.  Justice will prevail.  The republican is increasingly the party of old, white men.  The gains in the House were driven by a majority of women, independents and white college students.  This is good news.  Trump supporters are floating on little, tiny icebergs of power.  Increasingly alone.

Here is some good news from U.S. News and World Report which ought to cheer up just about anybody.
 
https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2018-11-07/young-voters-turned-out-in-historic-numbers-early-estimates-show
 
Young adults motivated by social issues and dissatisfied with the Trump administration turned out in record numbers to vote in the 2018 midterms and backed Democratic candidates by historic margins, initial analysis shows.
 
Thirty-one percent of voters aged 18 to 29 cast ballots in the 2018 midterm elections, shattering turnout rates from the past quarter century, according to an estimate by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University. This year's turnout was at least 10 percent higher than for the 2014 midterms, according to the center's estimates.
 
While exact vote tallies won't be available for several weeks, the preliminary data align with pre-election surveys, which reported a record number of young voters who said they would vote.
 
Participation in this year's midterms started weeks ago, as young voters cast early ballots in huge swaths. In many states, the number of early ballots cast by young adults eclipsed total turnout levels in 2014, according to The Hill.
 
Young voters also backed Democratic candidates in historic numbers, playing a critical role in some Democratic victories and narrowing the margin in some losses, exit polls suggest. More than two-thirds of voters aged 18 to 29 voted for Democrats in the 2018 election, compared with 32 percent who supported Republican candidates…
 
The 35 percentage point chasm is the largest gap in at least the last 25 years and is about three times higher than it was in the 2014 midterms, according to the center. The data from the exit polls is reasonably consistent with pre-election polling.
 
"That kind of share difference in vote choice was not even seen in President Obama's election," says Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg, director of the center. "It's historic in that way, and that's when young people's votes really count in terms of the change in outcome."
Voter turnout and choice may have been decisive in several races, analysts say.
 
"In an overwhelming number of races, according to the exit polls, the Democrats won the younger vote – folks under the age of 45 – and they lost folks over the age of 45," says John Della Volpe, director of polling at the Institute of Politics at Harvard University. It's a trend, he said, that has been consistent in recent special elections as well.

Ken and others who are so blind that they cannot see the racist-in-chief's primary colors. You ask for proof of his racist statements, especially as surrounds this election. You have to look no further than to listen to Trump's claims that both Abrams and Gillum were "unqualified" to be governors. That's horse hockey! Both of them had much more extensive qualifications than the current occupant of the White House has.
 
DJT has never had to be held accountable to any one else in his long business career (except maybe his father). The first two years of his term, he was able to control the agenda legislatively and avoid oversight due to his numerous sycophants who assiduously licked the crap off of his shoes after it slathered out of his mouth. Now he will be facing one branch of government that will be able to hold him accountable.
 
Though the Democrats do need to hold the oversight role seriously, what they need to do is develop a legislative agenda and pass it in the new House over the next two years. The legislation will not go anywhere, but it will serve as the basis for a discussion in the race for 2020. Meanwhile, Nero will continue to fiddle (re: play golf) while the world burns around him.

Gregory, the cup is half empty and you see that, "I am surprised as everyone the results of Election Day 2018. I had a feeling that there would be consequences as to Donald Trump's words, especially calling people names and acting like a bully."  I can agree that Trump is willing to be a bully, but your discounting the other half.  Your discounting the Cavanaugh  nomination circus put on by the DIMMS and the calls for endless investigations, impeachment, etc. that the DIMMS said they will do when they take the house.   
 
You see two years of this tactic is getting old and more and more non-DIMMS just want to get back in the government doing the peoples business. 
 
They feel the economy that has created the lowest unemployment, the foreign policy shift.  You may not think this is important but the predictions is a record Christmas shipping. 
Thomas Sutrina Added Nov 9, 2018 - 11:40am
Gregory and others the press conference existed because the White House invited the press to ask questions.  It was the WH's party not the press.  So Trump is free to choose how and what questions he answers.  We the audience are the judges of the press question important or irrelevant and the answer.
 
Jim Acosta is a guest.  Trump despite Jim Acasta's passed actions was still called upon.  Obama didn't choose Fox reporters to ask questions.  Many people thought his would have been a better punishment.  Gregory you do not like Trump but at least he isn't as deceptive at Obama.  
Thomas Sutrina Added Nov 9, 2018 - 11:46am
Gregory it seems that I must remind you that the DNC, Hillary C, and the liberal media chose Donald J. Trump as the GOP nomination even before the RINO candidates were rejected by the public with the huge amount of free coverage he received, more then all the other candidates of any party is dollar value.   So they got president they purchased.   You as a DIM thus have no reason to complain.

If it were me, i might have replied, "Jim, this is a press conference where i take some of my valuable time to answer press questions.  You're making a statement.  What's the question?"
 
He tried to ideologically challenge the president and tell the president why it wasn't an "invasion".  Absolutely not the point of a press conference, and I thought Trump responded appropriately.  On top of that as soon as Acosta finally shut up, his CNN Colleague April Ryan jumped in and decided she was going to interrupt over and and over.
 
If they had ever done this to Obama, it would be all over the news as disgraceful, but it is just par for the course with PRESIDENT Trump

Jeff, there are 3 races in Florida specifically, 1 in GA and 1 in  AZ.  the 3 in FL are all being  taken out are the Secretary of Agriculture (a state cabinet role that is one of most important), the Governor, and the US Senator.  all 3 have been suddenly had leads reduced or in the SoA case flipped to democrat.
 
All 3 have happened due to Broward County - who's Supervisor of Elections has already been cited in the past for unethical vote manipulation and fraud.
 
All 3 have had mail ballots counted past the required 30 minutes past poll close must be counted, no others are valid
 
All 3 have had requirements to report ongoing vote counts every 45 minutes by law update not be updated regularly
 
All 3 have had required observers not allowed to observe the count
 
All 3 have had votes come in at random times with no explanation of where they have come from
 
THESE ARE ALL FACTS.  THESE ARE ALL VIOLATIONS OF LAW.
 
It really doesn't matter what your article says, if it doesn't point out each of these violations and state the violations and the appearance - at the very least -  of bias and fraud, then your article isn't worth the paper it is written on.

Gregory,
 
I just dropped a little turdie on Eric Reports insane rant against Antifa.  I know that he is going to delete it.  Do you mind if I preserve it for a few days on your post?
 
Ken,
 
Are you fucking insane?  Actually that's the third thing that Trump said today that made me ashamed.  I was having trouble remembering all three.  That fucking bitch had the nerve to weigh in on the ridiculous controversy over counting provisional ballots in Florida.  I wish I lived in Europe, Mexico or Britain.  What a total dickhead!  It's like having the stupidest, most ravenous blogger on the entire mothership as your damn president!
 
This is my comment to Eric Reports regarding the protest at Tucker Carlson's house.
 
Sure, these kids are out-of-line.  You can hardly blame them for opposing some dick like Carlson.  Anybody who would publicly endorse president Trump is also outside the bounds of decent behavior.
 
So we have one group, Smash Racism DC that self-identifies as Antifa or perhaps, Anti-Fascist.  Explain to me how the actions of a few kids with spray paint justify a declaration of the mythical chimera, Antifa, as a terrorist group?  Don't terrorists shoot people and blow shit up?  Pull yourself together Eric.  This is a peaceful protest.  Not cool, by any stretch.
 
Please don't tell me the monster himself is calling for such an action.  Sometimes I think his supporters are more insane than Trump is.  Just today I was fucking ashamed of Trump twice.  First in her book, Michelle Obama describes the fear she had of the birther movement as related to possible violence against her family.  That fucking demon had the nerve to parrot the lie that somehow Obama so defunded the Pentagon that all of us were in danger.  This in response to Michelle's very real fear for her immediate family.  What a total dickhead.  Obama continued funding the military and killing supposed terrorists much like his predecessor.  I don't blame Michelle for saying that she will never forgive him.
 
Secondly, his ridiculous presidential proclamation.  The Dixie Chicks were ashamed of Bush?  Trump wrote the book on national shame.  It just gets one hundred times worse every day.

Rick Scott was a two-term governor of Florida.  If there are issues in Broward County, why didn't he insist they be addressed?

Absolutely, John.  Hasn’t Florida had all this time to fix their issues?

I hate to break your bubble Lindsay,
but Mr. Acosta did nothing wrong and the so called "footage" which was released by Mrs. Sanders has proven to be nothing but a lie! And Lindsay, that news conference had just proven that this is the beginning of the end of Donald Trump's Presidency by the way he had treated the Press especially those from Overseas. 
He is a Bully and a Racist because of the way he has treated 3 Black Reporters and he has issues with Women especially Black Women and African Americans!

Jeffry,
Mr. Accosta behaved like a Professional Journalist. Why do  you keep believing the lies of a man who is a serial liar? I know so because I am a Journalist myself. Mr. Accosta did nothing wrong but his job!

Trump's behavior was childish and disrespectful! Obama had more respect than Trump for the Media. Stop making excuses for Trump!

Mogg,
My opinion on Trump isn't wrong. I live in the same homestate as Mr. Trump and native New Yorkers know what kind of person he is. Look at what him and his father did back in 1972 when they were sued by the Government for Racial Discrimination at The Trump Organization, his written op ed piece 30 years ago when he called for the death of the Central Park 5 when they were accused of raping a Woman and later found innocent. He didn't and still hasn't apologized for his comments to those men! 
Mogg, I know what I am talking about!

Lindsay,
Sean Hannity was caught campaigning with Trump earlier this week with the election. Acosta has acted with more journalist integrity than Sean Hannity who is a hypocrite. The same with Limbaugh and Alex Jones.

Multiple reports of the live C-span coverage of Acosta absolutely show his left arm coming down on the arm of the female intern when she attempted to do her JOB after the president shut down the impertinent, wanna-be reporter.  The only doctored footage of the incident came straight from the long-proven and repeated liars of CNN.
 
i like Trump; he fights.  He doesn't put up with bullshit from anyone, and he knows it when he sees it.
 
He also doesn't go getting REAL reporters investigated and imprisoned because he doesn't like them, unlike D'OhBama the Deceiver.

Jim Stoner Added Nov 10, 2018 - 10:26pm
The video that shows Accosta did not act aggressively to touch the intern comes from C-Span.  That does not stand for 'Communist-span', in case some of you credulous folk are about to argue that.  Sanders' video was a hideously-crafted fake done by maniacs, and she was fool enough to spread it. 
Trump was a bully looking to fight--basically any journalist who wasn't obsequious and/or buying into his victory B.S.  He thinks his will can change realities, but the only construct he can understand is his own viewpoint, which limits him more than he can possibly realize.   He's now going to start experiencing the limitations that reality--the one the rest of us share--will impose upon him.  And he will get angry, and try to hurt people.  He must be punched in the mouth, repeatedly (not literally). 
Bill H. Added Nov 10, 2018 - 10:45pm
 
If you watch Trump's facial expression, jawbone muscle, body language, and the "Rooster Strut" he did when he left the podium towards the end of the Acosta exchange, it was very obvious that he almost snapped and was going to get physical with Acosta.
Trump is just about ready to go off the deep end. Seems that this is entertaining to some. Watching our country go to shit doesn't entertain me the least bit.
Sadly, we will all pay for it.

Obama's conduct was significantly worse.  He was abusive, divisive, actually sent the FBI after reporters, unlike Trump who has done nothing but eject one rude reporter from press briefings.
 
Just curious, can you show me any evidence of your complaints about Obama and how divisive he was? 
 
No, you aren't a racist, are you?
Ken Added Nov 10, 2018 - 11:32pm

That doesn't make it racist.  Just because they happen to be of a different race, he isn't allowed to criticize them?  You are the racist where any slight must have a racial component to it.  Idiotic policies like wanting to tax businesses 40% more or open borders or Medicare for none cannot be criticized if they come from a black candidate, huh?
 
You are pathetic.
Ken Added Nov 10, 2018 - 11:34pm
Mr. Accosta didn't disrespect Trump, it was the other way around!
 
You are absolutely delusional.  He tried to take over the press conference.  He wasn't asking a question, he was trying to create a philosophical debate as he LECTURED the president of the United States - in his own house - that the caravan wasn't an invasion.  That is a complete lack of decorum and disrespect for Trump and the office of the presidency.
 
The mere fact that you refuse to admit how inappropriate this conduct is speaks volumes about your complete lack of objectivity and your visceral hatred to anything Trump

 Trump is our president whether we like him or not, Democrats now have the House of Representatives and have to show they can govern.  They should all work with each other to get things done.

Dino-
We'll have to await post Jan 20th, but i strongly suspect that exactly what Trump said when he was stumping for republican candidates about what will happen if the democrats win will come to pass.
 
Their "priorities" are apparently to impeach Kavanaugh, impeach Trump, ensure that Mueller can't be compelled to wrap up his nonsense "investigation" - but zip-point-shit to try to help the country or improve the lives of Americans.  Oh, and they want to compel the president of the united States to turn over his tax returns to them, like they won't leak them as soon as they arrive.
 
Personally, i think Trump should turn over ONE YEAR of tax returns, on the condition that they keep them private, because that's what they are. on the condition that they remain absolutely secret, making them sign documents to that effect under penalty of perjury.  Then, enable the intel agencies to monitor everyone who gets to see them and everyone in the offices of the democratic AND republicans on the committee authorized to view them - and at the FIRST disclosure, move in, bust, and publicize the hell out of the leakers, just to give the dems another well-deserved black eye - or, to expose any RINO who remains.
 
Someone as stupid as Pelosi, Waters, Schiff, or Schumer will be like people with an arrow stuck in their thighs; they won't be able to help themselves and stifle.
 
That said, there's absolutely no law compelling such disclosure.  Now, if they wanted to see his birth certificate...

Gregory if you must lie then at least pick one that has some plausibility.   <<The Media isn't liberal; The Media is more Conservative than Liberal. >>   The media spokes people in over the last decade and I think even longer have gone on record saying they are liberal.  The media is on record to donate to Democrats with greater then 95% of the money donated.    We have proven studies that showed that the liberal news papers ignored the Nazi holocaust and Stalin's holocaust.  Only when it was undeniable did they change there tune if they had to or stayed quiet.
Thomas Sutrina Added Nov 12, 2018 - 2:40pm
Accosta is not a professional  and thus CNN is not a professional organization.   Professionals respect those that invite them.   No other news organization and there reporters decided that this was a hill worth dying on.  They had other ways to present their point of view. 
 
To remove access to a non-professional that chooses to ignore the rules is appropriate.  That is who a child is dealt with.   
 
The excuse the white house made is technically accurate but practically false.  It allowed the White House to dismiss Accosta without embarrassing him, if that is possible.
Jim Stoner Added Nov 12, 2018 - 2:53pm
We'll just have to wait for the new session of Congress, won't we?  The Democratic leaders have said they can walk and chew gum at the same time, meaning investigate, provide oversight, and produce legislation.  Trump's attitude seems to be "swear obeisance or fight a war", suggesting he can do neither. 
Ken Added Nov 12, 2018 - 3:51pm

Not only is it not possible, apparently CNN and Acosta are now suing Trump.  On what grounds, I can't imagine - access isn't an automatic thing, especially if you abuse it.  Seems frivolous to me.  Guess it depends on who they judge shop for it
Jim Stoner Added Nov 12, 2018 - 4:30pm
The White House would benefit by trying to put that embarrassment behind it and restore his credentials.  Everyone has made their point and it is bad PR for the WH to continue it.  It is not CNN's embarrassment; their response is justified outrage.

Eric Reports-
What does white nationalist mean?  It's a buzzword meaning nothing.
 
IMO, it's a psyop intended to subtly conflate "white nationalist" with "white supremacist."
After all, anyone who has watched the crowds at any Trump rally will see Black Nationalists, Asian Nationalists, Hispanic Nationalists, and so on; all Nationalist means is that you love your country over all others.
 
It's exactly the opposite of what that globalist mouthpiece, Macron(of France) just said, i.e. "nationalism is the opposite of patriotism," truly some Orwellian doublespeak nonsense...but then, he wants an EU army, ostensibly to protect Europe from Russians, Chinese, and Americans, but actually to FORCE EU members to continue the globalist agenda of being force-fed African muslims who will NOT assimilate, but drain welfare programs at the expense of those who paid into them all their lives, while setting up "no go" zones and attempting to enforce barbaric 7th-century "Shar'ia" on the IPs, not to mention the insane attacks by them on "infidels," the raping, the bombings, the use of trucks and firearms to murder, ad nauseum.
