Donald Trump Changing His Immigration Plan?

Univision as well as Buzzfeed have come out with articles indicating that  Trump is changing his immigration plan.  Multiple news sites have now come out with articles.  A snip from the Univision article:

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump plans to present an immigration plan in Colorado Thursday that will include finding a way to legalize millions of undocumented immigrants, according to three people who attended a meeting between the candidate and Hispanic leaders on Saturday at Trump Tower in New York.

"I really liked that Trump acknowledged that there is a big problem with the 11 million [undocumented] people who are here, and that deporting them is neither possible nor humane,” said Jacob Monty, a Texas immigration lawyer who attended the meeting.

If true, Trump's plan would stand in sharp contrast to his previous statements about immigrants during the campaign. During the primaries, the New York property tycoon promised to build a wall along the border…

The New York Times Admits They Are Biased Against Trump...And They Say They Have Duty To Be

Balance, Fairness and a Proudly Provocative Presidential Candidate

New York Times ^ | August 7, 2016 | Jim Rutenberg

If you’re a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies, that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him?

Because if you believe all of those things, you have to throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer, and approach it in a way you’ve never approached anything in your career. If you view a Trump presidency as something that’s potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you’ve ever been to being oppositional. That’s uncomfortable and uncharted territory for every mainstream, nonopinion journalist
I’ve ever known, and by …

Responding To Washington Post's Editorial Denouncement Of Donald Trump

The Washington Post editorial board writes this editorial proclaiming they could never support Donald Trump for President.  Then then proceed to give a plethora of reasons (which I am going to address).  They say that they usually don't do this so early and usually wait to endorse, but gosh darn it, the evil Donald Trump has forced their hand.  Like they would have endorsed any Republican over Hillary anyway.  This article is full of criticisms of Donald Trump that would not have applied to "maverick," "reach across the aisle" McCain and "gentleman" Mitt Romney.  It didn't matter.  The Washington Post endorsed Barack Obama both times. 

Looking at the Washington Post, it appears that they have a lopsided history of endorsing Democrats, and Republicans they do endorse are of course the moderate sort.  You know the moderate sort, right?  The kind virtually indistinguishable from Democrats.   The kind that make you wonder if there is essentially a uni…

Barack Obama And Dictators

Donald Trump has been accused of admiring dictators or cozying up to them by Hillary Clinton and her allies in the media.  Hillary Clinton put out a press release with a list of dictators that Donald Trump supposedly admires.  The media outlets all capitalized on her press release and proceeded to do a story based on that very press release.  I have done a response to that article below:

I thought I would do a post on Obama's relationship with dictators.  Some of these are "our" dictators meaning the dictators that we work with in order to accomplish our own national security interests, but the point is that Trump was attacked for cozying up to dictators and loving dictators when Obama has worked with dictators or refused to strongly pressure them to change because they work with us.  Here are a series of articles:

The article from Politico entitled "We Caved" is by far the best among the …
