Immigration Drives Up Home Prices

Bloomberg: Why Trump's Immigration Crackdown Could Sink U.S. Home Prices
President Donald Trump’s immigration policies threaten to crack a foundation of the American economy: the residential real estate market. Legal and otherwise, immigrants, long a pillar of growth in homebuying, are no longer feeling the warm welcome and optimism necessary for their biggest purchase.

Most people are idiots. But perhaps some will be redpilled. If you're young and don't own a home, seeing home prices drop as illegals are deported will give you an incentive to want more deportations.

The shitlib's lizard brain will eat his hamster: "I'm 1 million deportations away from a beach house! Get rid of those H1-B visas!"

In place of the hamster will be Pepe.

Former Khmer Rouge Turn to Christ

The former Khmer Rouge cadres who turned to God for salvation
Kong Duong was appointed chief propagandist and, as the head of the Khmer Rouge radio station from 1979 to 1996, his sonorous timbre became well known among supporters of the genocidal regime. His was, in effect, the voice of Pol Pot during a tumultuous period.

After almost four years, during which about two million Cambodians died from starvation, execution and overwork, Vietnamese troops ousted the Khmer Rouge leadership from Phnom Penh on January 7, 1979. The party’s supporters fled west to Cambodia’s border with Thailand, where they continued to engage the Vietnamese in guerilla conflict. Kong Duong played his part by waging a verbal war of propaganda over the radio waves.

Today, he has a very different master: the Lord. Having settled in Pailin province, Kong Duong now professes to be a Christian, and hosts a radio programme, New Signs, that broadcasts Christian commentary across Cambodia. And judging by the listeners who call in, his audience remains much the same.

“Most of the callers are former Khmer Rouge cadres,” he confirms, speaking in the car park of his impressive Pailin mansion (Kong Duong is also a government official).

Russian Hacking or Pizzagate?

In bizarro America, at least two Clinton Administration officials are under investigation by DC police on pedophilia charges. Clinton's Chief of Staff John Podesta is under FBI investigation for connections to a global pedophile ring according to unnamed sources. House Democrats say they will launch an investigation into claims of sexual abuse by former pages and interns. The Alt-Right toils away in obscurity claiming to have evidence that Russia hacked voting machines in several key swing states.
