Unz Review: Ask the Mexican
Why Don't Mexicans Just Apply for Citizenship?
Even before Donald Trump became president, the citizenship path for any Mexican who came here without the prior approval of the American government, or overstayed a visa, was as rocky as the Republican Party’s hope of attracting any Mexican voters. Asylum and Temporary Protected Status are impossible, since Americans think despotic governments and natural disasters only happen to whites, and the occasional Jew. Marriage to a citizen used to be easy, but 9/11 fucked that up forever (thanks, Osama!). The most surefire way to get legal was to join the military, because rich and middle-class gabachos always love poor morenos dying for the right for them to whine.    at 06:28

Poll: Most Americans Worried About War
Polls showed Americans relatively divided on the question of enemies, split roughly down the middle on whether Russia is friendly or unfriendly, and with a slight majority seeing China as friendly. 80% of those polled saw US membership in NATO as a good thing. Interestingly, the split on Russia broke along somewhat political lines, with Republicans leaning 50-49 toward being friendly toward Russia, and 75% of Democrats believing that Russia is either unfriendly or “the enemy” outright.    at 01:00

More American troops may be sent to Syria – US commander
The US has about 500 Special Operations troops in Syria. If American military presence were to be expanded, additional troops could come from conventional combat units, the New York Times reported. However, Votel stressed that he would not recommend deploying large combat formations.    at 00:50

CRB
Sanctimony Cities
Republicans like Romney have traditionally warned that the government was being run by incompetents. Trump did something different. He implied the government is being run by crooks. The New York Times was puzzled by Trump’s cabinet picks, looking at them in terms of policy subtleties, and finding that “a picture is emerging of an administration with little ideological cohesion and no single animating purpose.” In fact there has never been a cabinet picked on simpler or more coherent grounds. Namely, that the agencies as they are now constituted are terminally corrupt. “Drain the swamp,” as much as any policy suggestion about trade or immigration, appears to be the message at the core of the early Trump presidency.    at 00:45

Robert Reich, Blames Trump for Sweden's Riots
This is reminiscent of Obama blaming Benghazi on a YouTube video, isn't it? Quit apologizing for savages, you stupid shits.

How Tennessee Could Be About To Start A Constitutional Crisis
With a vote of 27-3, the Tennessee Senate has voted to call a "convention of the states" in order to draft and pass an amendment to the Constitution that would require balanced budgets to be passed every year. The problem with amending the Constitution through a convention is that once the convention is convened anything can happen. For example, the last time the states gathered for a convention in 1787 they ended up tossing out the Articles of Confederation and forming an entirely new government based on the current Constitution.    at 00:29

THE CRISIS OF THE STATUS QUO | American Conservative
While distasteful to many, Trump's often harsh, mean-spirited rhetoric gives others the sense of a man bent on charging through all impediments to implement his policies. The press takes Trump literally, but not seriously; his supporters take him seriously, but not literally. Personally, I can tolerate Trump's bombastic personality because he has demonstrated a clear understanding of the need for drastic changes after the Clinton, Bush and Obama years.

We have no idea what forces Trump has unleashed | Sanctimony Cities
Even a person who desperately wants to change his society would never expose himself to the scorn and retribution of his shift manager or his fiancée’s parents, if he thought the chances of change were zero. \\ Hillary Clinton was the candidate of the culture. She represented what people were supposed to believe. Donald Trump stood against what people were supposed to believe.    at 23:30
