Re: Tariffs and willful ignorance
Actually, Faith left willful ignorance behind long ago. Now she practices willful stupidity, dedicating herself to avoiding learning anything at all.

The big flood is not from the caravans Faith, it is a continuous trickle.

It is only the willfully ignorant that think the problem is the caravans.

What flood? From what I’ve read illegal immigration through the southern border is historically low right now. It’s just Trump playing to his xenophobic (and often racist) base,

So Rush Limbaugh this morning gave the most likely explanation, that of course the Izquierdo/**** somehow fails to know about: it was the NYTimes that ****, not Trump, the whole point being the usual: to put out fake news designed to make Trump look bad, look **** a ****, whatever, although they are the ones who ****. As usual. The deal with Mexico that everone started out calling a win for Trump, really is a win for Trump, but the ********* just can't allow Trump to win anything , not for long anyway. So here comes the fake news to kill it.

Thanks to the Dragonfly more words are now coming under the Mad Censor's poison deleter, so if you want to know what I'm saying use "Peek." If you don't care what I'm saying the Censor is making it easier for you. He doesn't **** anything that tells it **** it is about the ****. That way he preserves the one-sided politics of EvC.

Did he offer any evidence? If so, what? If not, how did you determine it's "most likely"?

He reported on the successful deal on Friday and all this debunker came down over the weekend. It's typical ******* Fake News, so that's how I'm likely to view it.

As far as evidence goes, he mentioned that as usual the NYT didn't give any evidence, referred only to unnamed sources which could even be invented by them. If they aren't giving evidence why should Limbaugh? His speculations are just as good as theirs.

Even if it were literally true that the deal was made months ago it's still the same deal, still the same win for Trump. Why wouldn't it be? In any case Mexico didn't start implementing its end of the deal until Friday, and that's the real news anyway.

What is the actual deal?
What specifically is in the deal that supposedly was reached Friday? What specifically is Mexico going to start doing that they have not been doing? How specifically is Mexico going to stop migrants and asylum seekers, shoot them all?

If it was made months ago it was a win for Kirstjen Nielsen and who did the negotiating. But now she's an un-person.

At least the Times claimed some sources, and you have no reason to believe they made them up. They have no history of such.

You didn't say Limbaugh's speculations are as good as theirs, you said Limaugh's were better why?

Re: What is the actual deal?
What I've heard is that they detain the people in Mexico, process asylum seekers there, have dispatched some 6000 troops to manage them. Sending many of them back too I think. Basically what we have to do when they reach our border although we've run out of facilities and people necessary to handle them. Not to mention our demented laws that don't let us send them back.

Re: What is the actual deal?
Mexico agreed to send 6,000 of their newly formed National Guard to the Guatemalan border. Exactly what actions they may take we don't know.

Mexico will expand holding asylum seekers returned to Mexico after their initial application.

The two countries will hold further talks on a "safe third country" agreement which would force most asylum seekers to seek asylum in Mexico rather than the US.

Trump said that there's a secret "very important part" that will be revealed someday. Trump also tweeted "MEXICO HAS AGREED TO IMMEDIATELY BEGIN BUYING LARGE QUANTITIES OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCT FROM OUR GREAT PATRIOT FARMERS!", which Mexico denies and which seems pretty weird since the Mexican government doesn't buy our food, private entities do, and the government can't force them to buy more.

Your "fake news" mantra doesn't affect reality. They are a big purveyor of true news that you don't like.

Can you list a few NYT articles that were fake and the evidence that they were fake?

Of course you can't.
