Trump Hires 70 Foreign Workers At Mar-A-Lago

America first! The Palm Beach Post reports:

Like other Palm Beach County employers who staff their clubs with foreign workers, President Donald Trump is boosting the number of employees he’s bringing from overseas this winter.

Trump won permission to hire 70 maids, cooks and servers at the Mar-a-Lago Club for the 2017-18 tourist season, according to newly released data from the U.S. Labor Department. In 2016-17, Trump hired 64 foreign workers at the Palm Beach property.

Hiring workers from abroad seems to contradict Trump’s public pronouncements. The president has publicly shamed Carrier Corp., Ford Motor and others for moving manufacturing jobs to Mexico. During a March 2016 presidential debate, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio criticized Trump for bringing in workers from overseas, saying American citizens could fill the jobs.

        I’ve just watched a news clip Trump/turd address the troops, in Japan, I think.
        But the clip reminded me of the old Pathe news reels of the British troops in 1914 cheering about going to war with Germany. They believed it would be over by Christmas 1914.

        In years to come we will watch these vids of Trump/turd address the troops before he sent them to their deaths and we will wonder why did we not stop him, why did the Congress not stop him. What allowed this insane maniac lead the USA into a nightmare…..did we sleep through his megalomania? Did we not see what is happening ? Or were we too timid in the face of those fascist Republicans who put us down with their ‘appeaser’ slurs ?

        And there before me on the screen right now are the troops, like turkeys cheering for Christmas/Thanksgiving while Trump/turd whips them up with words of “the greatest country in the world”, “the greatest military in the world”, and they lap up the hyperbole.
        These ones will be the first to die in this inexorable build up for war. And the Congress will forget about Russia and the election in a faux patriotic hysteria, a disunited unity of delusional ‘exceptionalism’.
        God help those 19 year olds in the army, navy, air corps.
        They haven’t a clue about this military-industrial complex that now seems to be in the hands of an illiterate delusional old fool.

        Like turkeys cheering for Christmas…..
        It’s tragic.

      I like it. I still pay a couple of bills by mail, because they want to add a big surcharge to pay on-line. Since November 2016, I always intentionally attach the “flag” postage stamp up-side-down as a subtle sign of protest. I’m sure no one else really notices, but it makes me feel good to do it.

        Otherwise, yes – getting out and voting is vital one way or another.

        • SoCalGal20

          Kaepernick didn’t vote in 2016 because he didn’t like Trump or Hillary. His choice, even though I strongly disagree with that avenue of “protest”.

          However, why LTH feels the need to to bring up that specific point every fucking time, I don’t know. How about bringing up all the Bernie or Busters who voted for Jill Stein or Trump?

            Thank you, SoCalGal20. In response to your comment:

            Until progressives make Not Voting politically incorrect, Trump and his ilk will continue to plague our nation at all levels of government. Our political system is far from perfect, but it’s the only one we have.

            While Not Voting was indeed Colin Kaepernick’s choice, which I respect, choices have consequences – in this case, his credibility as a public figure protesting police brutality (as a general term). It’s a shame he threw that away – because voter suppression is not necessary if people like him don’t even bother.

            Also in answer to your question, re the Bernie or Busters, and others who threw away their vote:

            Well, at least they – unlike You-Know-Who – voted.

            Trump voters actually voted – and that’s why Hillary lost the election.

      • marshlc

        Am I really the only person who likes Daylight Saving Time?

        Maybe it’s because I live quite far north (central Alberta). Here, in summer, the sun rises at three am, standard time. Sets around nine. Few people are up and about between three and four, but lots are between nine and ten. So moving the clocks so that it seems the sun rises at four and sets at ten just seems reasonable – why not be up while the sun is and have it get dark around the time many people are thinking about going to bed?

        If you live somewhere where the difference between summer and winter is not so stark, and you’re going to be up and about in the dark for hours no matter what, it probably doesn’t seem worth it. But here, it really does.

        • You are not the only one…looks like there are two of us!

        • Most people don’t realize how one’s location (latitude and longitude) effects the relative time of sunrise and sunset. So the issue is not a simple matter. Also, the powers that were (George W.) moved the clock-change dates to accommodate “energy savings” and school children who were going to school in the dark in some locations. Maybe it would help if we could adjust our work/sleep schedule to the sun instead of to the clock. Personally I love the sunset later in the summer – but I also don’t have to ever go to work in the dark, now that I’m retired.

          • marshlc

            Yeah, where I am, no mater what you’re not going to work in the dark in the summer, and no matter what, you ARE going to work in the dark in the winter. The only real effect of DST is that hour where you don’t need to turn the lights on, in the summer evenings.

            If you live somewhere where it’s just a matter of the lights being on in the morning rather than at night, I can see thinking the whole thing is a huge waste of time.

            And, tangentially, on the issue of not realizing that location has an impact on daylight – I often find myself disturbed and anxious watching movies that are made, as so many movies are, in southern California. I just have a feeling that there’s something *wrong*. Finally pinned it down a few years ago – it’s dark outside in the evening in the summer, in the movies. High summer, here, there is still a little lingering light in the west after eleven. Here, if the sun goes down at six o’clock, everyone is wearing a heavy coat. Funny how things like that can affect a person.

          • McSwagg

            Daylight varies from about 10 hours in winter to about 14 hours in summer at the latitudes of the southern border and gulf states of the US. That’s not a lot of variation and probably why Arizona opts out of DST.

        • Canadian Observer

          You might well be. I was up in Peace River (northwestern Alberta) for a series of meetings over the Canada Day weekend a few years ago… there was something disconcerting about the fireworks display having to be be scheduled for approximately midnight in order for it to be seen against a dark sky…

          There was also a wonderful piece on CBC about DST that pointed out that while the idea was to reduce energy consumption, there is no valid statistical evidence that it does – the primary effect seems to be to boost retail sales especially (for some reason) automobiles.

          I can do without the dislocation to my sleep patterns that DST causes.

    The real issue is that, under current law and regulation, the Department of Homeland Security, by itself, can ‘determine’ whether U.S.-based workers are available.

    No input from taxpayer-funded job service centers, like Careersource, is required.

    Frankly, that’s stupid. Any real businessman [one who pays his bills] would want to fix this, pronto.

    We just have to be patient. It will be sometime before 2100.

    The three-degree world: the cities that will be drowned by global warming
    – The UN is warning that we are now on course for 3C of global warming. This will ultimately redraw the map of the world

    Miami, US – 2.7 million people affected
    Few other cities in the world have as much to lose from rising sea levels as Miami.
    Locals consider ‘king tides’ (knee deep water in downtown streets) the “new normal” in the biggest city of Florida’s largest metropolitan area, which would simply cease to exist with a 3C temperature rise.
    Even at 2C, forecasts show almost the entire bottom third of Florida – the area south of Lake Okeechobee (includes Mar a Lago) currently home to more than 7 million people – submerged, with grim projections for the rest of the state in a little more than half a century. In Miami-Dade county alone, almost $15bn of coastal property is at risk of flooding in just the next 15 years.’

            There’s a concerted effort (conducted by Kobach?) to only use voters for reapportionment. The only way to accomplish that in the short term would be to undercut the (currently leaderless) US Census Bureau to the point that there is no 2020 Census.
