As long as it isn't over represented
Lol military made into cheerleaders. The absolute state of the military.
Imagine being a soldier that signed up to defend your country and being told you can’t do anything as invaders swarm into the country
Idk how you'd gauge if "white trash" is over represented among white people or not
Must be freaking brutal
I just know whenever I'm in a room with a 100 people of any color you can only count on less than half being competent
I want Mattis unleashed.
@Nemets I'm really worried that the Ukrainian immigration is going to be used as precedent for further immigration. Isn't that what happened in Germany? Started out with innocent European guest workers and then the corporations wanted more.
Protecting *our* borders doesn't make the military industrial complex money...
Mattis is a strict rule follower and understands the military's purpose.
I think that is the case, but the law itself a huge obstacle.
Turn the border issue into a legal military mission and I think Mattis is the guy to get it done. But, I dont think it is technically a military function. Hire more border patrol.
Make border patrol another military branch if that satisfies.
Protect the nation from an invading force of military/fighting aged men
They are all just gay brown people that want to buy Coca Cola and watch TV, bigot!
If the military can’t be used to defend against an invasion force, what’s it useful for?
Unless they can start killing, the military isn't trained for this mission. Not on the scale needed anyway.
Seriously what is the point of a military if it cannot be used to defend the border
only if its east TN
Pokemon is finally real
Imma be a poke master 😉
@Sam Southern - TN Did you see those articles on Russian birth tourism? It was sickening. And people were defending it because "haha at least it's white people being degenerates that makes it okay"
@William Russell the mountain folk out there are hard to reckon with, we need an inside man, you got this!
@Asatru Artist - MD You know I love destroying my peoples destiny and getting shitty food in return!
At least we are on the same page.
I don’t care what the immigrants “have.” They’re invading and should be dealt with as such.
And they’re not immigrants ffs
this so much ^
True, we shouldn't use that term even ironically.
They are invaders.
We 👏 have 👏 all 👏 the 👏 recipes
Honestly, "immigrant" already has a negative connotation in my mind
All I'm saying is that the capability the military provides (killing baddies) will not give us the desired outcome.
Honestly demographics and everything else aside. Respect our sovereignty and our laws. Even neo conservative boomers get that
Even “invaders” is giving them too much credit. When I think of invaders I think of conquerors
Parasites exploiting our resources and what we have built.
@William Russell That's what I don't get about the pro-immigration crowd. Like, even if you think immigration is amazing, is it so horrible to have some sort of checkpoint?
I'm good with "parasites", but I think its bad optically (dehumanizes them <:really:453005408064241674>)
I'm working on a massive, categorized list of research on immigration. It's going to take a while, but once it's done you guys are going to love it.
Never lose an internet argument again 😉
I mean, as long as they love liberty and guns, right?
as long as they pay taxes tbh
Pays taxes, still screws up our country...
The funny thing is, immigrants are a net drain once you add up federal, state, and local budgets. So, even if we had an immigration policy based on the standard of "pay muh taxes", we'd have far less immigration.
how could a doctor, dentist, or engineer be a net drain?
Immigration advocated use this dirty trick where they *only* count federal budget impact to say that immigrants are a net benefit. Even then, they ignore a lot of federal spending and they add some line in the article about how "we couldn't determine how much money in this category goes to immigrants, so we just left it out lol"
...and even if they were, how could we count on government statisticians to actually acknowledge and record that fact?
First thing I learned in statistics class is how they're manipulated to serve agendas. Very red pilling.
@Deleted User Skilled immigrants are probably a net gain for the budget, but they ruin the country in other ways, demographics aside. For example, they remove the need to invest in education for American students, since employers can just bring someone in on an H1B.
@Bjorn - MD The NAS study is pretty good. Government studies generally include pretty detailed explanations of the methodology, the it's fairly easy to find the good ones.
I don't know... this all sounds pretty racist to me... <:really:453005408064241674>
why do you hate brown people?
This is a good summary of the NAS report on the economic impacts of immigrants. Very useful information on budget impacts and other stuff.
I love brown people who are not in my country.
Cringiest thing I've ever seen
We’re reaching levels of soy that shouldn’t be possible
omg, let them all in! 😪
THEY'RE JUST LOOKING FOR A BETTER LIFE HERE GUYS
Literally crying rn
How about creating a better life there? <:usinnoodle:420778112226164736>
Take a moment to consider that there are ACTUALLY people whose argument in favor of immigration is that one of the immigrants could be the next Jesus
Of course they are. But, you know, seeking a better life by fleeing their own people’s civilizational incompetence
People literally argue this
They probably support Israel too
I really don’t blame them for coming here. It really is our job to keep them out though.
Oh, so now your calling their countries shitholes? I knew you guys were racists
But if they weren't shitholes why would they risk so much to leave it?
wanting our own country to be safe and in line with our people = racist
the ones whose lives are truly horrible, I guess I don't blame them
I hold nothing anymore
I sold at just the right time to barely break even
BUY MORE BUY MORE BUY MORE
I don’t have any hands
BUY THE DIP
Couldn’t even hold if I wanted to
I'll consider throwing a few hundo at the dip
The bottom feels way off imo
People who have held through big dips in the past have been rewarded hugely. Not saying that past performance is indicative of future performance, but it definitely *can* happen again.
There's been times where people had to wait like 2 years for their Bitcoin to recover, but, once it did, they gained big
as far as crypto goes, I say you'll find better gains just with equities lol
I bought Ethereum when it was $8
I wouldn’t doubt if it went back up in a couple years.
could have made massive money if I bought more
Could have, isn't a good metric to judge by
It depends. If crypto turns out to be a fad, yes, you'll make more off stocks or whatever. But, if it gets big, there's still massive money to be made. @Deleted User
Crypto can work if (((they))) allow it. Pretty risky when you're fighting the banks.
The media are the real racists.
Also, people who say that one cryptocurrency will eventually win out and there's just gonna be that one have zero understanding of how crypto works
Enemy of the people
That study isn't real, go back to the dregs of the internet you altright Russian troll
I'm a Russian bot.
beep boop, Trump.
I actually followed one of the Russian accounts lol.
No sane person is using cryptocurrency to dodge banks though. The argument is that bitcoin's mainstream practical use is buying drugs off of the internet, and beyond that it's purely speculation. It gains value when more people find out about it and buy it. My mom was talking to me about it before it peaked last year, which told me that there's going to be depreciating returns now that it's a household name
@V.Balboa - PA did you get demoted to Pledge? You've been hanging out in their Pledge Hall for a while now. 😂
@Patrick why should I use it? What's wrong with my regular dollars?
Could someone dm me the PO box for dues?
@Patrick Bitcoin just has first mover advantage. It's objectively worse than almost every other cryptocurrency, and will likely be replaced by something.
Crypto gains when it gets closer to becoming legitimate, but then loses its utility for anonymity. So if Crypto rebounds its gonna end up being like an extremely volatile fiat currency.
Aside from a slim minority nobody is using crypto to plan for retirement, and as less people learn about it and buy it it'll die down in the long-term and become more stable
@Josh M. -OH It depends on which cryptocurrency in particular. Many of them have entirely different purposes than "your regular dollars".
@Jacob You're not going to use it to buy anything you could* with USD because it's too volatile. Why would you buy a pizza with something that could be worth a car in a year? That happened to people in 2013
So it's not a "currency" in that sense but an asset
@Jacob that's the thing. How to convince people to use it and the advantages over the thing their job pays them in.
I guess Im part of the Identity Erovpa JV squad
I thought bitcoin sucked because transactions take forever and you basically get “taxed” for every transaction.
Money is gay, I trade pelts for all of my financial transactions.
@Patrick That's honestly a really bad argument. Why would you buy a pizza with dollars that you could invest?
Also it’s hard to buy stuff with.
A halfrate one
Yes, Bitcoin sucks a lot, but there's other cryptocurrencies that don't have the crazy problems of Bitcoin @Nerv - VA
Fox News is supporting CNNs lawsuit over press passes.
Idk, when I get better, I suppose
People who cling to Bitcoin must be suicidal, because it has absolutely zero advantages over other cryptocurrences.
We need a court to explain that privilege =/= rights.
>needing a court to explain that <:sad:366743316475281408>
okay man but I will be in need for an arist soon @Deleted User
You conscripting a painting or something?
@Nerv - VA Could be risky since it's only real use is criminals and political dissidents, but, at the same time, it has a very real use case that other cryptocurrencies don't
Because the USD only slowly, marginally and predictably changes in value, you will use it as a currency over the BTC that has none of these traits. 20 dollars in bitcoin changes rapidly to where it's useless as a method of exchange for anything you can buy with USD, and so it's not a crypto"currency" that'll end the Fed like the true believers want it to be
Okay, since some of you are wondering why anyone would crypto over your "regular dollars", I'll give you some reasons
> Some cryptocurrencies can be used to execute smart contracts, which is like a decentralized version of Amazon Web Services.
> Some of them have lower fees and transaction times than credit cards.
> They can't be manipulated by a central bank. Probably not that pertinent to you, but great for people in Venezuela.
Because you're hungry and it's Friday night
Doesn't that happen to crypto users, too?
You're not going to use bitcoin to pay for it though
I know, because Bitcoin sucks
But if some decent cryptocurrency became popular enough that pizza places were accepting it, I don't see why I wouldn't use it
I wouldn't use it if it's anything close to as volatile as every cryptocurrency is today, because I would be losing out on everything that cryptocurrency could be worth in the future
Comparing this to USD, where I know it'll be only ever so slightly worse in the same amount of time gone by
You're already losing out on everything that potential investments could be worth in the future by spending dollars
If you choose to buy a pizza, aren't you missing out on the crazy stock market gains you could be making with those dollars?
Is this picture pro-Semitic, or anti-semitic?
what does that even mean?
"everybody" vote = more Dem voters
I don’t know. Jews. They just look evil.
He looks inspiring and driven in this picture
The light focuses on him, instead of away from, like what they did to Bannon in his 60 minutes interview to cast shadow on his eyes
> lie to border patrol that you're part of an LGBT group to get in
> don't end up getting in
> stay in Mexico
> get beaten up by a bunch of cartels because they actually think you're gay
these guys really didn't think it through, did they?
It would be game over for us as a country if they let illegals vote.
They aren't sending their best, folks.
They're sending their crime
Is there a fireside tonight?
@Singleton Mosby WV I believe it's every single Wednesday unless they say otherwise
Yep. Fireside is on tonight lads
everybody vote - ever
my brain is thinking of all the deceased people who ended up on ballots 🤔
You don’t lose your right to vote just because you die. Stop trying to suppress the vote.
Trump should veto any budget that doesn't fund the wall.
@Hakujin - CA Then they'll blame him for the prolonged government shutdown. He can't win either way.
immigration is the only issue that matters
Immigration is far from the only issue that matters.
It's the endgame for us and it being controlled how we like is a victory condition for us.
But there are so many other issues in play
Similar to saying "The queen is the only chess piece that matters"
Or King perhaps.
Immigration is far and away the most important issue. But even if we closed the borders tomorrow, if birth rates remain what they are, the great replacement is finishing the job.
The main issue is the globalist/neoliberal power structure.
Media, finance, big tech, academia, NGOs
Immigration is a big issue but it stems from hostile governance
@Reinhard Wolff Absolutely. If we change our immigration policy, it still won't solve all of our domestic issues.
We need a new ruling elite.
I'm here 😎
Your time has come...
"I am the reaction"
~Bjorn - MD
Indeed *looks off into the distance dramatically*
Do you think the protrump republicans doing better than the moderate republicans in the midterms could be considered an indication that the power of the ruling elite is shifting? Specifically when it comes to establishment politicians
Will, I think that just indicates that the will of the people has shifted.
I suppose that comes long before any substantial change
It's indicative that an anti-globalist/pro-populist wing is growing within the GOP as well.
What I was trying to express is that it's worth it for Trump to face the backlash if it means restricting immigration. I could be wrong, though. Maybe it's better to play the long game.
Or rather Trump has opened up space for politicians who are willing to offer people what they’ve wanted for a while.
Remains to be seen whether anything substantial will come of it though.
But the powers that be are still the powers that be.
I'd like to see the republican party become what the democrats were 20 years ago in a sense. The working mans party rather than the country club party
I guess it won't really matter if Trump shuts down immigration today but the power structure remains, since they'll just revert his changes
we'd have to take on more than corporate tax cuts then @William Russell
but i'm with you
Trump is like a Wikipedia editor right now. He can edit whatever he wants, but the admins are just gonna revert it. He needs to get more friendly admins in.
More or less, Jacob. We need a holistic overhaul of the power structures in America.
Jim Jordan got slaughtered in the vote for minority leader, establishment pushed their puppet McCarthy overwhelmingly. Shift hasn’t really done much to change our ruling elite, they’re still in control. I wish the populist wing had been able to win that one, but just saw those results.
Replace globalist/progressive henchmen with nationalists, use the aforementioned institutions to promulgate a new ruling ideology (nationalism).
Is it possible that it represents that more people are turning away from the republican party? Or did most of the red counties stay red in the election?
Probably the most fundamental action for Trump to take right now is to stack the courts. Not just the Supreme Court. There are about 8,000 federal judges, and something like 1/4th of those are going vacant in Trump's first time. Stacking those positions would be huge.
Nationalism is where it will start. I used to think Populism was it until Trump dropped the N word. It's just semantics but then again it's a meaningful word people with common ideas can collectivize behind. I'd like to see other politicians use this language.
We need a banner to get behind as a people. MAGA, Nationalism, America First are all great. I hope to see a drastic transformation of the GOP in my lifetime
It's ok to be a nationalist.
The left has been A/B testing white people on how to best tell us that we're going to be a minority. This is discussed in the book Whiteshift. We definitely need to look at this research very carefully, because it's just as useful to us as it is to them. I was wondering, however, if we should also be doing our own research. Would it be difficult to conduct our own research? Maybe we can pay people like a few cents each to do a survey on Amazon Mechanical Turk or something like that.
Make this go viral.
Does that exist?
Maybe Louisiana GOP
@Jacob We should, just like AfriForum started to do in South Africa, when the police started refusing to count farm murders, while up until then, they had simply categorized them as burglaries gone awry. The situation there is, of course, for more advanced, but once we're in the minority, they'll inevitably try to ban racially specific data collection, like they did in France fifty years ago, and we're going to need to have our own numbers to work with.
...and just like with the sickle-cell anomaly in France, I'm sure there'll be oblique ways in which to to measure these things.
