Remember The Time Bill Clinton Got A Standing Ovation For "Cracking Down On Illegal Aliens"

Tyler Durden's picture

Before Trump, there was President Obama's Iraqi refugee ban and seven nations of terror proclamation.

But before Obama there was Bill Clinton who received a standing ovation for demanding stronger border defenses, and deporting criminal illegal immigrants.

"We are a nation of immigrants.. but we are a nation of laws"


"Our nation is rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country...


Illegal immigrants take jobs from citizens or legal immigrants, they impose burdens on our taxpayers...


That is why we are doubling the number of border guards, deporting more illegal immigrants than ever before, cracking down on illegal hiring, barring benefits to illegal aliens, and we will do more to speed the deportation of illegal immigrants arrest for crimes...


It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws that has occurred in the last few years.. and we must do more to stop it."


[Standing Ovation]

It's starting to get a little awkward for the identity politics of the left to defend their own history while denigrating Trump's actions.

Standing 'ovulation' ... or ... 'ovation'?

I would rather bone Rosie O'Donnell and then cut my own ear off than sit thru 30 seconds listening to those self righteous cocksuckers

That is a tall ask brother.  I hope that works out for you.  May I suggest some sort of rope system to find your way out?

The SAG awards - is everybody old at that event?

Bunch of vain shitheads giving each other awards weekly, and play acting.

Good for amusement purposes. Only. 

George Clooney needs to put his money where his big, FAT smug mouth is.

Hey George you cunt - move some Syrians into one of YOUR mansions you sanctimonious bastard!

You'd think by now the stupid assholes would have figured out that ONLY fucking morons listen to them.


Shitheels. Lecturing the public. Fuck them.

I dumped Hollywhackers years ago, Only reason I saw a movie in theater two YEARS ago was I got a gift card for one.

The big difference is those politicians didn't use any action. Congress jerks off to popular policies, as long as no one does anything. Along comes Trump who didn't get the memo.

Billy the Poet's picture

I don't agree with everything he's doing but I'm pleased to see a politician actually keep his campaign promises and do it so expeditiously. That's a new one on me.

Anyone know a website listing all of the cucks and businesses we do not patronize any longer?

Time to let the libtards know their idiocy is unwelcome.

besnook's picture

the problem for trump is he means it and the rest of the gang doesn't want him to mean. that's why he is being thrown under a bus. the problem is, in the past they had to say they were against emigrants(while letting them in as policy) because people would get upset. the 1986 immigration act was suppose to be the law that stopped illegal aliensbut it was never enforced.

the differnce today is there are enough usefull idiots, who can't think rationally, to buy the illegal immigrants are good for the country meme they have trotted out.

Useful idiots are still enemy combatants until proven otherwise.

Soon enough it will be out that 4chan elites played no small part in not only Trump's election but the propaganda machine behind him etc.

Lgbtqpb, feminists, racebaiters and the cuckhold is the problem with our country. Mad that Trump wont put  their depravity on a pedestal or rainbow shower the whitehouse like the last disorganizer in chief.

The leftists are openly embracing and promoting any element that can destabilize Western civilization.   This is a war for the end of that Civilization.   If you do not start openly fighting back,  they win and every generation hereafter is doomed to darkness.

Except this ban applies to LEGAL ALIENS.

Also, the silence from lawmakers and state reps on this is deafening.


silverer's picture

Oh really? I heard green cards were going though. Either way, the ban was TEMPORARY. Do you know what that means?

silverer's picture

We need the asshole troll posters to write to Bill Clinton, and tell him the same thing they're telling Trump. Where were you asshole crybaby liberals then? In the audience applauding? You must have been, because that's applause. So for liberals, it just matters what team you're on. Because it's OK when Bill does it. It's ok when bill screws around with chicks. OK when Bill flies the Lolita Express. OK when Bill gives the Chinese US technology. OK when Bill does the crooked Clinton Foundation thing. OK when when Bill robs the money from Haiti meant for reconstruction. You guys suck. You are total hypocrites.

WOAR's picture

It has barely been a week.

I didn't vote for Trump, or Hillary, but I seem to recall that for 3 years Obama had a grace period of saying "I am doing this because it's all Bush's fault."

Calling Trump a catastrophe right now is calling it early. Give it a year. If he's still in office, things are going great. If he's dead, it is the end of America (because everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is ready for a "Trumpocalypse" - mentally, if not physically). There's going to be a civil WOAR beyond imagining if he dies in office.

Lizardking's picture

Bill was a sweet talking politician, Trump is a alpha male and he wants everyone to know it. That's the difference. All the leftists/media crybabies just want to be spoon fed by some lying politician rather than see the truth front and center from an orange man. Liberals want to live in the matrix.

ZHrs. You are in a propaganda war. This is more dangerous than a shooting war.

You need to wade deep into the shit hole MSM comment boards and control the narratives with a no de guerre. set up a fake gmail account; fake discuss account and use the genius of your fellow ZHrs to shut down the comment boards.

I find that the snowflakes can't argue with some of your comments. literally, you drop some ZH bombs and they either stop to think or they lose it and emote. 

ZH is the fucking best. Love it.

Joyo Bliss's picture

"Reverse trolling" seems like a lot of work. Nothing seems to change their minds, until reality* hits them in the face.

*reality is like "riot police" or "arrested" for incitement to violence like that NYT reporter: "India" something or other. She needs to be arrested for her comments this weekend.

They need to wake up the hard way, it seems.

BabaLooey's picture

If you take them on here - it becomes fun. 

I could give a toss what some of these asshats say. Most have brains like mush. This IS Fight Club. 

Except, these fuckers think "fighting" is posting one or two sentences, calling people names, posting silly shit and thinking they're clever.

Find ONE of these fucks that posts anything remotely intelligent...............

......................yeah I looked too.

You won't.

FUCK 'em. They degrade me - or someone else on here posting intelligent thoughts? I'll ram them like a torpedo.

In real life, most of these cunts are just that - cunts. Single them out and they go soft. 


BabaLooey's picture

FUCK the commenting trolls.

I said on another thread; I bet 90% of them - or more - are limp-wristed Nancy boys.

NONE of them scare me. In real life either. I'll scrap up with any motherfucker that tries to take me on, on the street.

Tough talk? No. Real life. Most of these sissies would piss their pants and run. 

I walk around frosty. LOVE to take on the fucks here. Most of them - in fact, all of them, can't write for shit anyway. They have retarded brains, and if you'll notice, most can't string more than two sentences together. Most all have NO cogent thoughts.

All they are "good" for is coming on here, calling people idiots, calling Trump names and thinking it's cool. 

The fucks don't even realize how lame they are. They need to type/smacked around from time to time. 

Feed the trolls? No...FUCK tthe trolls. Fuck WITH the trolls. Challenge them to post half-way intelligent posts, intelligently arguing their points. They can't. They're stupid. They are online thugs, hiding behind a keyboard.

The Clapping to Bill Clinton in this specific case is very telling...

Suck it... UK Protestors/Petitioners of 400K
Suck it ... Neocons
Suck it ... Hillary & Clinton Foundation
Suck it ... DOJ Loretta Lynch
Suck it ... DOJ Eric Holder
Suck it ... FBI Chief Robert Mueller
Suck it ... FBI Chief James Comey
Suck it ... SEC Chief Mary Jo White
Suck it ... OCC, Treasury Chief Thomas Curry
Suck it ... FDIC Chief Barbara Ryan
Suck it ... FED Chairs Greenspan, Bernanke, Yellen
Suck it ... Treasury Chief, John Paulson, Timothy Geitherner
Suck it ... President O'blama, President no one to blame in Finance/Banking/Treasury/Federal Reserve/DOJ/SEC/FBI/FDIC... FINRA... or bank examiners

AND our Independent Accounting Firms who audit our companies have NO Blame. Same with our adept Financial Ratings firms they are on top of it and of course need no redirection or guidance to prevent further Financial Crisis even though we see them grow and occur every 10 years, right?

Well Financial Ratings were great up to 2007 - 2010 Global Financial Crisis... I guess they were paid to make the ratings look good... but that is all behind us. The sky is the limit in the USA and you can make a fortune by investing in our derivatives and complicated financial products which we won't explain to you and will make you feel foolish for asking about. Well we are just so smart, and smarter than you. Are you stupid, why not invest in the TBTF Bank Products and services?

- Hm.. are financial magazines down in revenue?
- Hm.. are individuals pulling out, are trusts pulling out of hedge funds... are people remembering 2008 and avoiding fancy-pants investments and firms on Wall Street?

Pulling out of Wall Street & Hedge Funds is the answer to DOJ & FBI & SEC FAILURE!

Hey look everybody, it's "We wont have any more snow by 2016" Al Gore.  I don't know about you guys but I froze my ass off this winter and the mountains of AZ have been buried.  They just had -80f in Russia and -60f below in Wyoming but we weren't supposed to have any snow by now.  There is another complete asinine pathological lying globalist cuck!  No shame, they just keep rolling on.  Some people actually buy into it too.

Ms No, you're bad ass.  Thank you for your posts.



just the tip's picture

the rub is, bush/clinton/bush/obama said all the right things, but just as slick willy said here, nobody is going to do any thing about it.  i think this dove tails with, "if you like your doctor, etc., etc.

trump is only doing what these dumbfucks said.  or phrased differently, they were "all hat, no cattle".
