As far as border security goes:
- It plans to build new wall in 30 or so "strategic locations"
- Beefs up security and technology at ports of entry
- Expedites the asylum process so that applicants are approved or denied without having to hang about somewhere in the US
- Establishes some sort of Border Fund that pays for some of this via money collected from border crossings

Legal Immigration:
- Shift from family based immigration to skills based immigration
- Establishes a point based system requiring you to have advanced education, a job offer, financial self-sufficiency, English fluency, passing a civics exam,etc
- Mandatory E-Verify
- Nothing about DACA

According to the numbers and percentages Trump outlined in his rollout speech, this is what the before and after is proposed to be:

[Image: vf3UuuS.png]

The stated aim is to keep the immigration numbers the same, but it clearly is not going to work out that way. According to Trump the roughly 4 million person backlog would be evaluated under the new visa system, which effectively means they aren't getting in given most of them are there because of a family relation. Furthermore a good chunk of immigrants aren't going to come if they can only bring their spouse and minor children.

It's a very good step in the right direction when you consider that Kushner was involved and took input from some Conservative Inc. circles. And there is less fire and fury with this rollout, with Trump using more nuanced language which suggests this is meant to be more palatable for cucks and others. Naturally the NYT and WSJ editorial boards hate it anyway.

It's dead politically until 2020 because of the House, but allegedly the Senate is ok with it. So for now it's a campaign promise - give me the House back and I'll get this passed. Make of that what you will.

US Citizen here originally from UK. I came on a student visa, then got a Green Card before becoming a citizen. A few comments

-Employees and Investors - More foreigners - The number of Chinese interested in moving to the US is declining, so prepare for even more Indians coming over. We may need to change the name of the country to USIRT
-Permanent Residents Spouses and Children - Does that mean you if you're a Green Card Holder you can't bring a foreign wife over until you become a citizen? It takes 5 years for a Green Card holder to become eligible for citizenship.
-US Citizens siblings - In most countries you can't sponsor siblings, so I'm OK with this. BTW my siblings all live in the UK and they have no interest in moving to the US

On the other hand, the economies of Belgium, etc., are much larger than that of Israel in terms of GDP and thus would be expected to peacefully absorb a larger number of migrants.

Perhaps you have discarded one delusion for the other.

There are productive citizens all over the place, going about their lives, migrating, getting jobs in new industries--regardless of their complexion.

"A man can't change into a woman" the same as "Somalis are intrinsically less competent than Swedes."

Even if both of those propositions have an affirmative truth value...

One of them is a logical truism.

The other is a hypothesis that may or may not be found to align perfectly with the empirical data after closer examination.

Can you see the difference?

And what's the excuse for why this was not done in Trump's first two years with a technical majority? Any super-loyal Trump supporters still around want to explain?

Seems like all the important things like health care and immigration are getting pushed back to 2020 AND on the assumption the GOP re-takes the House.

Swear to Christ, Trump better take some real action on online censorship ASAP. There is some bipartisan support on this issue. Give us something legit RIGHT NOW for fucks sake... no more "monitoring" or "we'll do it when we get the House in 2020" bullshit.

You mean requiring private media platforms to support coverage of people they'd prefer not to?

If you truly believe in your ideas, you shouldn't need their platforms in order to succeed.

That is what the free market entails.

Is discrimination good or bad for business? Well, Facebook discriminates... and only the test of time will tell us whether that is a viable, sustainable business model, or whether they fail and are replaced by their competitors.

The thing about requiring platforms to cover all users regardless of their beliefs or practices.... It's similar to but also different from requiring an Evangelical baker to bake a gay wedding cake.

There are different rights poised at odds--The Freedom of Religion versus Equal Protection. In a civilized society, we weigh these rights against each other.

In the case of a media platform, I say the government should keep its hands off and let, for example, Amazon de-platform Roosh.

Now Roosh has--out of necessity--begun to use alternative platforms to do business, and his message is still accesible to those who seek him out.

People shouldn't be required to market beliefs they disagree with.

On the other hand, a baker is serving a single client, who specifically commissioned the cake. This is different from the case of Facebook, who serves as a medium between third parties, and so are staking more of their brand on the decision of who to cover.

The only problem is that these companies do more than just de-platform.
They de-platform and character assassinate in order to justify their de-platforming.

This is a form of economic warfare and they get away with it because the libel laws are outdated.

Imagine if Roosh was de-platformed and the reason Twitter gave wasn't "he advocates for pro-rape and his ideas are a threat to society" but they could only say, "we don't like him because of what he says", Oh how different things would be.

The former allows them to censor and wield tremendous power by destroying an individual's future, the latter would make them think twice before going on a commie crusade, forcing everyone to tow the party line or else.

But that is the beauty of free speech.

Quote:Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.

Proverbs 17:28

As soon as one of these 2-dimensional shills publish something that is just re-gurgitated talking points derived from some other source, oftentimes positing obvious falsehoods (e.g., "Roosh is a rape advocate"), that immediately raises a red flag, and everyone that's paying attention learns that the writer is a hack and not to be trusted. Some of these writers are betting that their reputations will fare better if they toe the SJW line. But when we observe that movement as a whole (e.g., Gillette condemning street pickup game in their ads), we see that it's in retreat mode, merely forestalling a cataclysmic correction of course. That's why they can't handle a respectful conversation with somebody that disagrees with their opinion. They censor others because they do not have faith in the truth-power of their own propositions, or they do not have faith in the ability of persons in a public forum to discern the value of those propositions. I say, let's have faith in the ideas we speak, and the ability of persons to discern their value, whatever it may be, or let us consider holding our tongue.

Lolbertarians. Yeesh.

Get back to me after everyone with "wrong opinions" is deplatformed and FB then says "no social media platforms for businesses that employ or source goods/services from thought criminals (IE people without an active FB account).

These people are children who've never attended a history class and they're living in fantasy land. tard

According to them as long as a digital oligarchy captures democracy and the entire market using free market principles then folk are obligated to bow to shadow-king Zuckerberg for all time.

Pathetic neckbeard cowards.

You ignoring my point about libel shows me that you're not interested in a conversation.
Yes we have free speech but you're [not supposed to be] allowed to print something that isn't true, it wasn't long ago there were real consequences for that. The tech oligarchs simply use their money and influence to drown out any charges of libel, and this is why the laws need to be updated.

They're a private party, so they can say whatever they want, short of slander, and de-platform anyone they want. That's the benefit of being a private (versus public) entity: you have control over your own voice, and your own digital hardware. You get to decide whether or not to signal this or that value or belief. People don't have to listen, and there's a risk that they won't--if they don't like what they hear.

Slander is already illegal. What more do you want?

The SJW movement showed its true colors. History watched them make fools out of themselves with an immense outpouring of rage in reaction to an image that was intentionally misleading. Again, this is the beauty of free speech. It allows those who are watching an awareness of the contour lines of our society. In which corners is truth focused? In which corners is deception? The ideas and the propositions speak for themselves.

But I'll get off my soapbox for now, unless you guys have any more rebuttals.

The SJW movement showed its true colors. History watched them make fools out of themselves with an immense outpouring of rage in reaction to an image that was intentionally misleading. Again, this is the beauty of free speech. It allows those who are watching an awareness of the contour lines of our society. In which corners is truth focused? In which corners is deception? The ideas and the propositions speak for themselves.

But I'll get off my soapbox for now, unless you guys have any more rebuttals.

So basically, the lawsuits he's filing against CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NYT, WaPo, etc., are all fraudulent because "they made fools of themselves".

Please stay on your soapbox, we need more of this kind of logic here.

It's also already illegal to own a monopoly in any given industry. If they're too big that they end up wielding this outsized coercive ability, then the law says to split them up.

Oh, thank goodness. We're already there by any reasonable definition. Have been for some time in fact.

How are the proceedings going?

That would be a question for the US Department of Justice.

It may be that the novelty of Facebook's business model (consumers don't pay for the service) resulted in a non-existant or sluggish law enforcement response, but now they're too powerful to actually confront. Scary stuff.

If there's evidence of a monopoly but the authorities can't even muster the snuff to file a case against Facebook, then the case needs political intervention. You'd get my support on that. But I doubt that's the case. Facebook is in court all the time as a defendant.

The question is, how exactly would you regulate this industry? You can't just divvy up the accounts, like with Broadband providers, because it's by nature a single global forum. And if you banned Facebook, surely it would be replaced by others who provide the same service.

Not if the courts find them culpable.

According to your above remarks, they're simply exercising their free speech as private enterprises, and have done nothing wrong. But now you include the possibility of the courts finding them guilty of wrongdoing - sorry but you can't have it both ways.

Now pivot onto your next talking point because this one hasn't gone so well for you.

If the charge is slander, and the defendant committed slander, and there's sufficient evidence, then the courts must find for the plaintiff.

It's not a super challenging concept.

"Freedom of speech" has a very well-articulated scope and limits.

It doesn't include slander.

I'm not making this stuff up myself.

Slander and Libel have different meanings. The first is spoken, the second is written. One is legal and one is not. Please don't shift the topic.

Slander: the action or crime of making a false spoken statement damaging to a person's reputation.

Libel: a published false statement that is damaging to a person's reputation; a written defamation.

Again, you're wrong. And when you reference the courts you only contradict your original position of private enterprises having the right to publish what they please.
