Bill Clinton rates standing ovation for sounding like Pres. Trump

Democrats only decide remarks are “racist” when uttered by Republican

 On January 24, 1995 when President Bill Clinton gave his State of the Union address to a joint session of the 104th United States Congress he received a standing ovation.

Democrats listening to Clinton’s rousing speech found these words inspiring:

“All Americans, not only in the states most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service 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.”

Fast forward 22 years and the same issues addressed by President Donald Trump are labeled racist and reeking of self-serving protectionism.

But U.S. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (GA) agree with Trump. Declaring “It’s time our immigration system started working for American workers,” on Tuesday the duo unveiled the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act, legislation that will help raise American workers’ wages by restoring legal immigration levels to their historical norms and rebalancing the system toward employment-based visas and immediate-family household members. The RAISE Act would lower overall immigration to 637,960 in its first year and to 539,958 by its tenth year-a 50 percent reduction from the 1,051,031 immigrants who arrived in 2015.

According to Sen. Cotton, “The RAISE Act would promote higher wages on which all working Americans can build a future-whether your family came over here on the Mayflower or you just took the oath of citizenship.”

“We are taking action to fix some of the shortcomings in our legal immigration system,” said Sen. Perdue. “Returning to our historically normal levels of legal immigration will help improve the quality of American jobs and wages.”

    Everything is politicized right now. Democrat Bubba Clinton says something regarding immigration and he’s cheered. Republicans have a sane solution and they’re called names. Trump’s “Muslim ban” is the same thing Obama did and there was nary a peep from the Left, nor was it called a Muslim ban.

    We went to a Super Bowl party on Sunday and believe it or not – people were careful about saying who they were supporting. Remember, Tom Brady likes Trump – so we must be careful not to hurt anyone’s feelings – or get into a fight.

    The Left is responsible for this huge divide in the country. Yet, polls are showing Trump’s popularity is pretty good and a slight majority are behind his vetting of people from the seven terrorist countries.

    Obama, the community organizer of the people, is trying to learn kite-skiing like his cohort in Iranian crime John Kerry. They both look like women in those getups.

    wheres the worlds outrage, oh yeah, again thats reserved for the United States:

    UNITED NATIONS – Japan’s prime minister said Tuesday that his nation needs to attend to its own demographic challenges posed by falling birth rates and an aging population before opening its doors to refugees.

    “I would say that before accepting immigrants or refugees we need to have more activities by women, by elderly people and we must raise (the) birth rate. There are many things that we should do before accepting immigrants”

    – Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

    and i believe Tokyo is the most populace city in the world, very low crime rates and i dont think there has EVER been islamic terrorism there.

    yet we and the west are required to self immolate to satisfy social justice warriors an lovers of imported voters and cheap labor to take jobs from Americans while inflicting horrific crimes upon us.

    Cheap shot by CBS. That’s what the left calls “news.”

    Trump is correct on this issue.

  5. Vince says:

    Notice the use of the words “illegal alien.” by Clinton and Obama? They are off limits for Republicans. Now the words that must be used are “migrant,” as through they are sparrows returning to Capistrano — or “undocumented.” In truth the illegals have plenty of documents. They are just stolen or counterfeit, and we, the victims, should understand the need for such criminality according to California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon

  6. Saguaro Sam says:

    We are seeing the effects of what Obama has caused.

    Two veteran Phx PD officers, with more than 30 years of law enforcement experience between them, failed to search a suspicious suspect who was found in a stolen vehicle outside of a convenience store near 17th and Van Buren. Mere blocks away from many State and local government buildings.

    As a result of Failing to following what used to be SOP, both officers ended up being hospitalized, with one sustaining stab wounds from a Handcuffed suspect. Ponder those facts.

    Dallas PD has had almost 100 officers retire or resign in the last quarter of 2016.

    Chicago PD is reporting suicides within their ranks.

    Meanwhile, Hillary —in what looks like a video-recorded speech—telling women that they will rule the world.
    Good luck with that.

    Intel CEO: Past tax policy has disadvantaged us Intel CEO meets with President Trump in Oval Office
    1 Hour Ago | 04:21
    Intel chief executive Brian Krzanich met with President Donald Trump on Wednesday, where the company announced it will invest $7 billion in a factory employing up to 3,000 people.

    The factory will be in Chandler, Arizona, the company said, and over 10,000 people in the Arizona area will support the factory. Krzanich confirmed to CNBC that the investment over the next three to four years would be to complete a previous plant, Fab 42, that was started and then left vacant.

    The 7 nanometer chips will be produced there will be “the most powerful computer chips on the planet,” Krzanich said in the Oval Office with the Trump administration. Most Intel manufacturing happens in the U.S., Krzanich said.

      This actual private sector job growth never happened happened under Obama and wouldn’t have occurred if Hillary had been elected. Obama’s “shovel ready” jobs were a bust and the only thing he expanded was government. Since deceit has always been her forte, Hillary could have trained a corp of liars.

      This is quite a video reminder:

    Can Hollywood be any more obnoxious.
