Tariffs work. Ask Mexico



Summer began with President Donald John Trump telling Mexico to stop waving illegal aliens through on their way to the USA, or pay a tariff. The media went nuts. CNN ran a story that said, "Chipotle could raise burrito prices by 5¢ if Mexico tariffs become permanent."

Mexico acquiesced.

One day before the president's deadline, Reuters reported, "The Mexican Finance Ministry said on Thursday it blocked the bank accounts of 26 people for their alleged involvement in human trafficking, as Mexico broadens its migration clampdown under intense pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump.

"The ministry’s Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) said in a statement it froze the accounts due to probable links with human trafficking and illegal aid to migrant caravans.

"The FIU added that it would present the cases to the Attorney General’s office.

"The United States is looking for Mexico to target people-smuggling organizations as part of a package of actions on immigration to stave off punitive tariffs threatened by Trump.

"The move comes a day after the government sent soldiers and armed police to block a large group of migrants crossing into Mexico from Guatemala, detaining at least 350, and arrested two prominent migrant rights activists in Mexico City."

Mexico also sent thousands of National Guardsmen to secure the border. The government also agreed to detain those seeking asylum in the USA.

The press quickly dropped the story and moved on to some other manufactured outrage.

This week they said they looked into impeaching President Donald John Trump over a Sharpie. The Washington Post reported, "Why President Trump's Sharpied weather map was likely a crime — and should be." The media needs meds. Stat.

The story, however, continued regardless of whether the press reported it or not. President Trump is at last securing the Mexican border better than any president since Eisenhower.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told Fox News, "In 22 years of patrolling our Southern Border, I have never seen Mexico act like a true Border Security Partner until President Trump got involved, and now they are stepping up to the plate and doing what they need to do."

President Trump on Thursday told reporters the number of illegal aliens entering the nation is down.

He said, "We need help on the border. The numbers are really good. I want to thank again the country of Mexico. They have 25,000 soldiers right now protecting our border. They have done a fantastic job, so we appreciate that very much.

"Mexico has never helped us on the border, and they are now. 25,000 soldiers. You may want to talk about the numbers, they are down half, I guess. Do you want to mention that?"

Indeed, Fox News reported, "The Mexican government announced Friday that the number of migrants coming to its border with the U.S. had dropped by 56 percent over the past three months as the country tries to avert President Trump's threatened tariffs on Mexico's exports to its northern neighbor.

"Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard, citing data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said the number of migrants apprehended at the frontier in August was 63,989 in August, down from 146,266 in May. Those numbers included people who presented themselves at U.S. ports of entry and were deemed inadmissible."

The wall rises too.

The press believes it can kill this story by not reporting it. But the truth is out there.

    1. Illegal invasion has only slowed down due to summer. They'll start ramping up invasion in October again. Its an age old pattern. Obama deported double the illegal aliens that Trump has done in same time periods. Trump is busy with chasing money for mammon. FYI... when Jesus said you can't serve gog and mammon, he was referring to Caesar, god of money. Government was always the enemy, especially in countries where people vote. As long as you believe your vote is counted, government doesn't care what you think.

    2. Hey there.

      Preacher punk.

      Servant of your belly.

      Servant of your breathe.

      Servant of your thumping pumper.

      Servant of your butt and bladder.

      What is money?

      Unit of exchange.

      Exchange of transactions.

      Transactions of trade.

      Trade of what is required.

      Which is what is needed.

      To serve your belly.

      To keep body made of flesh functioning.

      To serve Purpose of Design.

      Design of Designer.

      Purpose of Designer.

      Intent of Purpose is known by experiencing Design as Created.

      You serve the Purpose.

      Serve your belly.

      And fill your mouth with something.

      Pretendng otherwise is not serving your Purpose.

      Keep your flesh functioning.

      Your time for preaching otherwise will come after you are no longer serving your belly.

      Until then, stop your pretending otherwise.

      You are merely depreciating your Purpose, which, by Design, is to serve your belly.

  2. If true, I love the anecdote that Trump wanted newly constructed portions of the wall painted black, to make the steel hotter to the touch. MAGA.

  3. If I read this right, you're implying POTUS has weaponized American consumerism. Brilliant! It'll be interesting to see if the socialist figure out their Latte and avocado purchases are helpful in securing our border.

  4. LibCommie weapon for 2020: Trump didn’t build the wall. Complete bullshite. When the lies become your reality, you seriously need help. Once again, I renew my call to reopen the Trans Allegany Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. There’s a YUGE untapped market there.
