Sec of Labor Acosta resigns today.
I think this will end up being a great thing. I don't know why Trump liked him so much. Acosta was continuing most of the Obama era policies at the DoL, many of which run counter to Trump's theme of deregulation and economic progress.
The only thing I could come up with is that Trump had enough battles on his plate and didn't want to create more uproar by going all MAGA on the DoL, but that just doesn't sound like Trump. Maybe he just isn't all that conservative when it comes to labor policies or doesn't think the DoL is all that important.
Hopefully, this will be an opportunity to get someone better in the job - if not a solidconservative, at least someone who isn't a liberal.
Do you have a link? Thanks.

A blockbuster appearance? I doubt it. Probably a nuthin’ burger, but the Dems will try to fluff it up.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has said Sir Kim Darroch is a “fanatical” Europhile and a “globalist” who should have been replaced after the Trump victory.
Mr Farage described his first meeting with Sir Kim in 2005 whilst the diplomat was serving as the UK’s ambassador to the European Union, saying within “a few minutes into the conversation, I realised that a civil servant who ought to be politically neutral was a fanatic for building the European Project and the new global order.”
Does anybody else feel like we are living "Groundhog Day"?

................."CBC members, such as Clay, exploded in anger at Ocasio-Cortez for having “used the race card” and accused progressives of seeking to oust black lawmakers by endorsing their primary challengers.
The progressive group Justice Democrats, which is closely aligned with Ocasio-Cortez, is supporting primary challengers to several longtime Democrats, including Clay and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), a Hispanic Caucus member.
Justice Democrats have also considered a challenge to Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), a CBC member who is viewed by many as a potential heir to Pelosi.
“Donald Trump has brought the question of race to the forefront of American politics, so it’s no surprise that there will be ongoing and continuous and serious and often uncomfortable public discussions on the subject,” Jeffries said. “At the end of the day, our common enemy is Donald Trump, not other members of the House Democratic caucus.”
In the presidential race, Biden’s backers are still fuming over what they view as a dishonest characterization of his record on race by his rivals for the presidential nomination, including Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), 54, and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), 50...................

Trump Blasts Cowardly Antifa: ‘They Live in the Basement of Their Mom’s Home’
President Donald Trump held a “Presidential Social Media Summit” in the White House on Thursday where much of the discussion revolved around how conservatives and independents are mistreated by the liberal-leaning and Democrat-supporting major tech firms and social media platforms.
At one point the president focused his remarks on the Antifa group, the black-clad, mask-wearing anarcho-socialists that claim to battle fascism while utilizing the exact same tactics made infamous by the European fascists of the 20th century.
President Trump is not intimidated by Antifa, however, and mocked them ruthlessly as being nothing more than skinny and weak losers that live in “mom’s basement” and have to gang up on weaker individuals instead of fighting one-on-one with larger and tougher opponents.
Trump’s remarks on Antifa were prefaced by an acknowledgment of the recent Antifa assault on independent journalist Andy Ngo during a rally in Portland, Oregon, in which Ngo was repeatedly hit and kicked and had things thrown at him, an assault that landed him in the hospital with a brain hemorrhage.
“You ever notice they pick on certain people?” Trump said. “I mean, [Ngo] would tell you he’s not the toughest person in the world physically, right?”
“They don’t go after Bikers for Trump, you ever notice that? They don’t go after our construction workers who love us. They don’t go after the police.”
Trump joked about how the left, including members of Antifa, believe that they are the “elite” in society, but disagreed with that self-assessment and said, “They live, like, in the basement of their mom’s home.”
He then mocked how the majority of Antifa members are skinny and weak and, forming a small circle with his thumb and forefinger said, “Their arms are this big. Look, like this.”
“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, and they hit people. They hit people in the face, in the head, this Antifa,” he continued.
“But do you ever notice Antifa is never there when we have a bikers rally. They’re never there when the construction workers and the unions are honoring the president, they’re never around,” Trump added, noting that the group only ever seem to attack single individuals when they have superior numbers.
I guess a "wall" can take various forms
President Donald Trump’s deputies may soon finalize a “safe third country” deal with Guatemala that would allow U.S. border officials to legally block most migrants from even applying for asylum, according to the New Yorker magazine.
The Guatemala deal would create a legal wall on the U.S. border that would prevent migrants from asking for asylum or getting released into the United States, according to the outlet:
According to a draft of the agreement, which The New Yorker has obtained, asylum seekers from any country who either show up at U.S. ports of entry or are apprehended while crossing between ports of entry could be sent to seek asylum in Guatemala instead … Under this new arrangement, most of these migrants will no longer have a chance to make an asylum claim in the U.S. at all. “We’re talking about something much bigger than what the term ‘safe third country’ implies,” someone with knowledge of the deal told me. “We’re talking about a kind of transfer agreement where the U.S. can send any asylum seekers, not just Central Americans, to Guatemala.”
Pro-migration advocates are appalled because they are concerned the agreement might effectively bar the catch and release of the many economic migrants who ask for asylum at the U.S. border.
“This is reaaallly big news,” said a tweet from Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, an advocate at the migration industry’s Immigration Council advocacy group. “It will be challenged in court but it’s likely an uphill battle.”
Pro-American reformers are hopeful, partly because the vast majority of worldwide migrants must pass through Guatemala to reach Mexico and then the U.S. border.
“It is significant,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies. The legal deal would allow U.S. officials to quickly reject asylum claims by northbound migrants from Honduras and El Salvador — or from Africa, India, Asia, and South America — on the grounds that they had declined to apply for asylum in Guatemala.
The New Yorker reported:
The draft of the agreement doesn’t provide much clarity on how it will be implemented—another person with knowledge of the agreement said, “this reads like it was drafted by someone’s intern”—but it does offer an exemption for Guatemalan migrants, which might be why the government of Jimmy Morales, a U.S. ally, seems willing to sign on. Guatemala is currently in the midst of Presidential elections; next month, the country will hold a runoff between two candidates, and the current front-runner has been opposed to this type of deal. The Morales government, however, still has six months left in office.
The deal also helps Mexico because it would allow Mexico to easily repatriate migrants who refuse to apply for asylum as they pass through Guatemala.
The likely price for America, Vaughan said, is more aid to Guatemala and Mexico. However, the extra aid will be far cheaper than the cost to Americans’ wages, schools, and rents that would be imposed by arriving migrants.
American pro-migration lawyers will fight the deal, she predicted, but the deal will likely persuade migrants that the benefits of migration northwards is not worth the financial cost. That would be bad news for the cartels because the coyotes’ labor-trafficking business only works if the migrants can repay their debts with American wages, she said.
The deal “strikes a blow to the smuggler’s business model,” she said.

Upside down American flag. What’s next, someone setting it on fire? Pure craziness
I read it was a Blue Lives Matter flag that they desecrated and then hung upside down. The Mexican flag replaced the US flag.
My question is why were they allowed to get so close? Why were they allowed to trespass and vandalize? If the .gov does not push back against this lawlessness then eventually the people will and it will NOT be prety.
When an obviously hostile crown gathers make them disburse. Use tear gas, water cannons, make arrests. The lack of action is unsat.
Odd, they want to move to the USA but protest by removing the American flag and replacing it with the MEXICAN flag! To become a citizen you are required to renounce any allegence you may have to whatever country you came from and swear to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. It seems that they are unwilling to do so from their actions and should be EXPELLED, by force if needed.!

After reading a post on Antifa on the preceding page, I ran across this video about how Norway dealt with Antifa some years back. I found it very informative to hear a Scandinavian point of view which is not ultra-liberal which our MSM would have us believe is the predominant view there.
