NYT Columnist Is Ashamed Of America

During a recent airing of “PBS NewsHour,” David Brooks, a columnist for the New York Times, gave his two cents to the government shutdown by saying, “I’m embarrassed for my country.”

His statement in entirety is below:

“I’m embarrassed for my country. You know, we’ve gotten used to these shutdowns, but we really shouldn’t ever. It’s all so stupid. If we had like a Dwight Eisenhower or Franklin Roosevelt, they’d just say, ‘Okay, let’s get in a room, we’ll figure it out, and they’d act like grownups.’ They would feel so demeaned to go through the rituals of condemnation. And so, we shouldn’t forget that elemental fact, it shouldn’t be like this.”


  • Dennis Smith

    So is everybody by the way the Liberal Democrats acted

  • Mary Reynolds

    It isn’t our country we should be ashamed of. Its the politicians who are running it. The Democrats won’t agree to a single thing President Trump wants to do. In fact, they only demean him and his whole family including the young son. I am ashamed of the Democrats and I will never vote for them again. Perhaps the columnist should take another look with an open eye and then see the writing on the wall.

    • SeanM62

      Sounds like the way Republicans treated President Obama for 8 years. How does it feel now? Or are you a hypocrite?? And don’t forget – Brooks is a TRUE CONSERVATIVE!!! That’s how bad Trump and his buddies are.

      • mark

        Excuse me! O-BUTHEAD GOT EVERYTHING HE WANTED! Brooks is no conservative! Never has been!

      • gvette

        Well, your butt buddy Barry tried to destroy our country.

      • Mary Reynolds

        I don’t ever remember anything vile being said about Obama’s daughters or his wife. It seems to me that they could do nothing wrong. And Mrs. Trump can do nothing right even though she is more of a lady than Mrs Obama will ever be.

        • SeanM62

          “I don’t ever remember anything vile being said about Obama’s daughters or his wife.” Holy Mother of God – are you kidding me? Just this morning someone put a short film of a gorilla tio describe Michelle. How many times was she called an ugly monkey? Please, check your memory cells again.

          • mark

            Michelle is not one of Obama’s daughters! Michelle was more than politically active!

        • Jeannie

          You are right again….these democrats are so full of hatred and the filthy brown stuff just spews out of their mouths

      • Al

        Obama was our in-house jihadist. He supported the muslims and their war against us infidels. !$%^& Obama.

      • J. P. Lynch

        There is nothing about Brooks that is conservative! And President Obama got more respect than he ever earned! It will take a long time to undo the progressive damage he inflicted on this country!

        • SeanM62

          Brooks is a true conservative. You are a regressive and do not know what a real conservative is.

          • J. P. Lynch

            Sean………I beg to differ with your assessment of me – but will let it go at that.
            I will agree to disagree. I have attended Hillsdale college and got my
            conservative education and values there. I have taken many Hillsdale online courses over the years as well so I am continuously updated.
            Right now taking the Winston Churchill classes, and reading the Larry Arnn
            book “Churchill’s Trial”.
            Also attend the Limbaugh college of advanced conservative studies daily,
            MAGA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸Have a nice day.

      • Bill

        Seanm62, where were you in the last 8 years??? You have not a clue if you believe your BS post.

      • jim jones

        That fucking anti American muslim should never have been elected, the slime was a TOKEN!

        • SeanM62

          You need a day in the time-out corner for being a potty-mouth and lessons in how not to be conned by a sleazy used car salesman.

    • Reasoned thinker

      Mary Reynolds — Absolutely correct!

    • Jeannie

      You are so right. These crybabies are so used to getting EVERYTHING they wanted under obama…Now that their allah is not in charge, they are not getting their way. waaaaaaaaa waaaaaaaaa waaaaaaaaaaaa…Get used to it chuckie baby

      • william bailey

        They are “STIIL” mad cause they lost out in the election !

        • Tony

          George Soros says the liberals will be back in power by 2018. He has the money, so he should know.

          • J. P. Lynch

            Soros is an evil man. How he is allowed to speak in Davos against the USA and Pres Trump is beyond me, especially when Pres Trump is the first US president to attend the conference in 18 years (?). Soros should be arrested for treason and deported or jailed. He is behind two political pacs run by obama that cause mayhem and rioting across the USA! Soros has controlled Obama since he was a first term senator in Illinois ! His money and deception is not enough anymore to sway the people that support Trumpmand our country. I doubt very seriously the democrats will gain much in the 2018 mid terms. I.E… The economy is at an all time high, unemployment is low, the stock market has reached new heights, companies reinvesting in manufacturing plants in the USA, employees at multiple companies getting bonuses , tax reform long overdue, Apple coming back to the USA and bringing billions of offshore dollars with them, and will pay billions in taxes, auto companies bringing manufacturing back to the USA, our world trade agreements being renegotiated in our favor, the border patrol is securing our borders and new agents hired, ICE agents enforcing existing illegal immigrant
            laws, our military is getting the support it needs from Pres Trump and Sec of defense Mattis, etc etc
            The country wants more of the same – not the whining of the lying progressive democrats that want one world order and open borders. Just my humble opine but I am pretty confident in my fact based opinion. MAGA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    • J. P. Lynch

      Exactly. Good post. Thx

    • Jason Brum

      You are so right, they are Parasites on the backs of the American working Tax-Payer, they all need to be replaced and some Rino’s.

    • jim jones

      They are ALL part of America, brought to the forefront by the American political system; so I am ashamed too! I have in the past and will in the future try to change that by speaking out and voting properly!

    • Tony

      Like the idea of congress voting on these spending bill’s individualy instead of just one big omnibus spending bill. That way they are not as likely to hold the government hostage. There are 12 spending bills that has to be funded by congress. Most of them they can pass easily. But a few of them they haggle over. If they want to shut down the government down, then there will be only a few that won’t get funded.

  • ClarenceDeBarrows

    He’s a New York Times columnist. ‘Nuff said!

    • SeanM62

      Brooks is a CONSERVATIVE with a brain and a conscience!!

      • J. P. Lynch

        I will politely disagree! Brooks has not been a conservative for the last ten years!! He outright lies on national tv – so much for a conscience!

  • Kmat

    “PBS NewsHour,” David Brooks – I am guessing that his complaint is the Republicans did not agree with Amnesty for 3 million DACA Illegal Immigrants causing the Government to shut down for 2 working days.

    • Big Ed

      Keep reading. I read an article earlier today which stated how difficult it must be for Trump, negotiating with people who refuse to tell the truth (Democrats). They want to negotiate immigration, but they refuse to tell the truth about immigration. They lie about how many illegals are involved (the guess is between 12 and 30 million), they refuse to tell the truth about the nature of those illegals (they will not tell the truth about how many are criminals or what crimes they commit), they won’t tell us how many are collecting welfare or how much they collect, they won’t even talk about how many of the DACA people are truly honest and hard working. The Democrats talk about 7-800,000 people, but want to negotiate for the entire group-which might be 30 million Mexicans. They talk as though the Dreamers (a group which includes 3.6 million people, but may include 30 million actually), should be given amnesty and citizenship (voting rights). They won’t admit that DACA people are 142% more likely than citizens to commit a crime-for Dreamers the number is 256% more likely to commit a crime. We are talking about completely changing the character and culture of the country. DACA = CACA!!!

      • SeanM62

        Are you a fiction columnist for Faux Noise? Are you a victim of von Munchausen Syndrome? Do you look under your bed at night and find several dozen Democrats there? It appears so.

        • Big Ed

          None under my bed, but I think I found one wandering around this conservative blog.

        • IntelU

          What part of “ILLEGAL” don’t you asshats get? A liberal will never use the words “illegal immigrant” in any conversation you will have with them..calling them “dreamers” or “undocumented immigrants”. You need to join the real world dumbass.I have seen you on these blogs and you say the same stupid,ignorant shit every time you make a comment so, just go back to fantasy land and stop embarrassing yourself and your family. Thanks for playing!!

          • Reasoned thinker

            IntelU — Fully agree with you.

          • J. P. Lynch

            Good post. Thank you. I, too, think Sean is a liberal trolling the wrong blog!!

          • IntelU

            Thanks J.P…Usually when I write a good reply loaded with facts people are not aware of like how our dear leaders(the Gov,senators,house reps,federal judge are a bunch of corrupt liberals) my posts get yanked off immediately,like the hedge funds all the previously mentioned people
            have for the mineral rights in Oregon.remember the Hammonds in Burns
            OR..how the BLM came in and stole there water,set a damn fire that was headed to their property and when they did a back burn to stop it, the BLM took them to court for burning 1 acre of federal land and they had to pay a $400.000 fine for it..well, they could not afford it,lost their ranch and it is now being mined for the precious metals and even uranium that the BLM knew was on the property…yeah..pretty f…ked up isn’t it?Again,thanks for the kind words..see ya on the “terrorizing the liberals” news blogs-Regards, DannyMac

          • J. P. Lynch

            Danny Mac. Yes most people don’t know what the true facts are and have no knowledge of history either. I vaguely remember the Hammonds in Burns Oregon , as friends that live in Oregon mentioned it, but I was unaware BLM was involved (?). I am going to research that. Thx.
            Pres Trump is doing great in Davos too. Taking them by storm. It’s the first time in 18 years an American president attended!!
            There were a few protestors – lol
            I wonder who organized those? He met with PM Netanyahu- a great
            savior of Israel ! And also PM Teresa May – she is so over rated – not a fan. She is allowing England to be invaded by Muslims and paying them millions of dollars in welfare, housing, medical care etc. only 4% of the invaders actually work. They have no go zones and want sharia law!! PM Churchill is flipping in his grave. The London mayor should never be allowed to discuss whether or not Pres Trump visits. It’s way above his lay grade.
            Just read where Palestine Hammas is upset with with Trump over stopping our welfare support and then they spend $50 million on a private plane?
            Makes no sense to me. I am also glad we are cutting back on our contributions to the United Nations and their wasteful spending .
            Didn’t mean to digress.. have a nice day. Glad we can have a good discussion. MAGA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

          • IntelU

            I will get back to you later J.P…Dr. appointment..good times!!

          • IntelU

            P.S….I have not heard a peep out of sean62…The liberals always disappear when you start laying on the facts..it makes my day everytime!! facts for them is whatever cnn,msnbc etc,etc are regurgitating today..to funny!!!

          • J. P. Lynch

            This guy SeanM62 seems to troll conservative chats – and is not very well informed on current events, politics, history or facts. He really isn’t interested in anyone’s opinion other than his own.
            Hope u have a nice weekend. MAGA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

          • IntelU

            You have a great weekend to my friend…Have you seen the FISA memo yet? You can find the story on Info wars..reference William Binney…man, you are going to freak out when you see the shit our awesome president just allowed them to release!!
            the Dems are going to have a major meltdown if this ever goes totally public ie-the news agencies actually report it..I’m thinking they won’t have a choice cause this is total vindication and “We told you so” facts in writing! let’s see them deny this.

          • J. P. Lynch

            Thx I will look that up. I didn’t think it had been released. The FBI and Mueller are basically dead in the water. Did u see the ceo’s having dinner with Trump yesterday in Davos and pledging business deals in the USA? It was quite impressive. President Trump was certainly teaching the liberals the art of the deal — and now the lying progressive liberal pigs can eat “crow”! Lol.
            The stunt the Guggenheim museum pulled on First Lady Melania yesterday is beyond outrageous and that curator should be fired! Everyone boycott the Guggenheim. All sense of reason has left the opposition as Pres Trump lives rent free in their heads 👍👍.. but his family is and always will be off limits!!
            TGIF 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

          • IntelU

            Iheard the President did well at DAVOS..I have not read the news on it yet.What did a museum do to Melania? Jesus,these people will do anything it’s so messed up.no shit they should be off limits!! I need to go and read this shit..take it easy brother.Semper Fi

          • J. P. Lynch

            Danny Mac
            I just googled the Hammonds ranch in Burns Oregon. BLM – Bureau of land management and the Fish and Wild Life service certainly overstepped their government control. I think what happened was a huge government over reach to put it mildly. I cannot imagine all of this happening in the United States ! Omg. And to punish law abiding American citizens . This is horrible. Thx for bringing this to my attention. I want to read further on
            how it sits in the present! It completely destroyed this family and their legacy. What a huge travesty of justice.

          • IntelU

            Hey JP..I’m glad you took the time to look further into this matter..another note on this is after the BLM took their water the Hammonds took the feds to court and won..on their way out of court the feds told the Hammonds that if they took the fence down(yes,they put a fence around it so the Hammonds could not use it) they would be arrested for destroying government property.And there is more,the Hammonds talked to the judge about this and he told them if they subpoena them they would not show up for court..I know, in any case like this you or I didn’t show up for court the other side would automatically win but I guess that doesn’t apply to the feds.Changing the subject here..tonight there is a memorial service for the murder 2 years ago of Lavoy Finnicum..there will be many American patriots there and probably some implanted city or federal instigators yelling shit and trying to make drama..Portland is such a shithole now..the city allows all these Antifa,Portland resistance to go around intimidating and beating people up who look like conservative’s calling them racists and all the usual liberal diatribe…it’s such a joke..people who visit Portland say they will never return do to the danger and there are literally homeless people everywhere
            and I mean everywhere!! Oh yea..that sanctuary city thing is really working out well
            for them..what a bunch of clowns.Anyways..I need to go.I enjoyed your post and it’s nice to see someone who is engaged like yourself..Regard,DannyMac

          • Sweet willy

            This is a little off subject, but bear with me..recall when BLM was rounding up the cattle owned by a rancher near Misquite NV..It seems that the son of a congressman wanted the land for a RED Chinese client to build a wind farm. It may be hard to find, but several years ago the BLM Elko office wanted some land of some unknown reason and harassed some old indian that was running some horses. It turned out the indian was using reservation land. There is more to these stories than I can type here at 9 PM in Culver OR MAGA

          • IntelU

            Hey Willy..I have the same issue with having so much more info I could share..me and my wife have been following all this stuff since the beginning..my gal talks to people everyday about all the things going on with the Bundy’s and the other people who still have not even been to court..their cases will also be dismissed but of course not until the feds play all their little fucking games with them.Oh, by the way..the feds killed the Bundy’s cattle and ended up having to pay them for 100 head plus a lot more cattle from other ranchers..The feds chased the cows and there calves in helicopters separating them and not allowing them to get to water..sick mother fuckers!!Anyways, I need to step back on here for a while since i’m getting really pissed as I recall all of these egregious things the punk ass power trippers did to these good people.Regards,DannyMac

        Ed ….good post ! Just found out today Obama is behind another illegal operation called the “Progressive Turnout Project ” to register people to vote,
        Legal and illegal alike! Check it out. It’s disgusting and treasonous to say the least. Obama wants to make voter registration automatic like when u get a drivers license even if u are a non citizen! There is so much voter fraud already or he would have never been elected twice ! And communist Soros’
        money is supporting this too!
        Can’t Obama just go away and take Hillary with him?? Soros should be tried for treason and deported along with his sons !!

    Well David Brooks, I can truthfully tell you that “True Americans” are ashamed of you as a journalist or host or whatever you are because you are part of the liberal media. And we deplorables that are true loyal Americans don’t give a s–t what you think or say. WE ARE ASHAMED OF YOU MORE.

    • SeanM62

      NO!!! Not so. Trump is making America much, much worse. France, Germany and Britain are now the leaders of the free world and almost no one pays attention to what the fickle-brained child president says because he changes his mind every two minutes.

            Oh gee, I made a typing error.Kenyan. Is that the best you can do, Saun? I noticed you never post facts to back up your crap. Here’s a review of your Kenyans economy.

            we have the final nail in the coffin of President Obama’s economic reign. Not only is the average annual growth rate of just 1.48% during Obama’s business cycle theweakest of any expansion since at least 1949, he has just become the only President to have not had even one year of 3% GDP growth.

            An average annual GDP growth of 1.48% during Obama’s two terms.
            While I’m at it, a few more of his failures.

        • John McComas

          He exaggerates, yes. But none of that has had the consequences of Obama’s lies, weaponization of the IRS, the FBI, the BLM, the EPA, the last gov’t shut down, IRAN money drop, suspension of investigation of IRAN supported drug trafficing, and on and on. Trump is an egotist, but he loves this country. His so called lies have not hurt anyone. Obama’s have.

          No, I am dead serious. I am just an old woman but I am not senile and I do know a thing or two because I have worked all my life and never taken a dime of welfare. Maybe that’s why I like Trump. He wants people to make their own way and I agree with that. If you want to support all these dead beats then give them your money but I don’t want to do that. I feel that God helps those that help themselves. maybe you are one of the takers. I don’t know. In any case give it a rest.

          • J. P. Lynch

            Thx Mary. Very good honest post! I respect your hard work ethic. These liberals posting here are from an alternate universe!

    • J. P. Lynch

      Gee,,,, the stock market is at an all time high, unemployment is very low, auto companies investing millions of dollars and creating jobs, major tax reform, many millions of workers getting bonuses, Apple reinvesting billions in technology here and will hire thousands , Apple and many other corporations are bringing their offshore profits back to the USA too, we are drilling our own oil, becoming energy independent and creating jobs, border control is much improved, more agents hired, our military is now supported and respected, as well as our police and firemen and first responders, etc etc. Pres Trump accomplished this in one year in spite of the constant bombardment of lies by the press and the democrats trying to sabotage his every move!! I’d say Pres Trump “is” making America great again!! Facts are facts!! We are all fortunate to live in a free society in this wonderful country. God bless America 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

          Since you are a low information person, let ne tell you – your president said we didn’t want any more immigrants from s%%thole countries and wondered why we aren’t getting more migrants from Norway. Ergo, I mention Norway as did Trump.

          A whole 362? Out of over 5.2 million? Boy, are we a big draw!

        • SeanM62

          I thought I answered this. So 362 Norwegians out of a population of >5.2 million? Not a real stampede, would you say?

          • mark

            There are 4,642,526 Norwegian Americans in the USA. I will also point out that every slot available to immigrate from Norway is filled and has been filled every year. We limit the number of people coming from Norway each year. just as we do for all European countries.

            Their country is suffering because of socialistic. Innovation in their country has been stagnated.

  • Jimbo Velasquez

    Your free to leave the country!

  • mark

    Then get the hell out of America. We are ashamed that lying liberal idiots like you live here!

    • SeanM62

      You are in the minority. Get your bags packed yourself and go back to Europe where you would be happier. You are a sad excuse for an American wannabe.

      • mark

        I served my country while fat asses like you sat on them!

        • SeanM62

          That has nothing to do with the argument. Or do you want to bring up TrumpelThinSkin’s service to his country by not contracting STDs?

          • mark

            DRAFT DODGER! That is what you are! You are the part worst that America has to offer.

          • SeanM62

            That’s right, change the subject again.

          • Jeffcunnin

            Shut him up by telling him where you served.

      • John McComas

        Sorry. Polls say he is not.

        • SeanM62

          Which polls would that be?

  • Terry Butts

    If he feels ASHAMED that the CONSTITUTION was followed instead of caving into extortion demands that those breaking immigration law by given AMNESTY before the DEMOCRATS would allow the government to keep operating he can move to another nation.

    Congress had YEARS while the illegal dictate known as DACA was being followed before its BUILT IN well known expiration date was reached. THEY IGNORED THEIR JOB expecting the next president to just blindly keep extending the EO and have been throwing a fit ever since they found out the new president FOLLOWS THE CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRICTIONS on government power and refused to renew something congress had more than ample time to address in a CONSTITUTIONAL manner before it expired on its own.

    • SeanM62

      Saint Ronnie Reagan gave amnesty to tens of thousands. Ashamed of him? The DACA folks are contributing to the US economy and culture. You want to create enemies of thousands of people. Well done, Mr Butts!

      • John McComas

        Each time there was amnesty, it was promised to be a one time thing. You don’t know what DACA illegals are contributing. That is shear speculation. When they make demands waving their Mexican flags they are hardly contributing to our culture. They blame the gov’t when they should be blaming their parents for dragging them here.

        • SeanM62

          Don’t you march in St Patrick’s Day parades or celebrate the Highland Games? As a McComas aren’t you proud of your Celtic heritage?

          • John McComas

            I was born here. I would not think of entering another country illegally, and protesting for something I’m not entitled to, waving an American flag. It has nothing to do with pride of heritage.

      • Terry Butts

        How is FOLLOWING immigration laws making enemies of anyone that CONTRIBUTES to this nation?

        As for your next claim.

        http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/01/16/dreamer-age-illegals-crime-rate-double-young-americans-says-report/

        Besides NO MATTER WHERE YOU STAND ON DACA or illegals it has nothing to do with passing a BUDGET until CONGRESS constitutionally addresses the issue it has nothing to do with any budget debate. So when

        DEMOCRATS cause a shutdown by trying to EXTORT an amnesty deal in exchange for passing a budget the government SHOULD SHUT DOWN in fact they should be fired for the attempted act of extortion.

        As I stated DACA had the expiration date BUILT IN FROM THE START congress knew exactly how long they had to LEGALLY address the issue and IGNORED IT expecting the FIX to be endless extensions of an EO that the very person who made it stated was UNCONSTITUTIONAL and included a TIME LIMIT so congress could CONSTITUTIONALLY ACT on the matter.

        Who ever called Reagan a saint? Like all politicians he only did what suited his personal political agenda the FRICTION congress has with Trump is he UNDERSTANDS what authority the government actually has and that the government is supposed to be working FOR US CITIZENS not foreign interests or foreign citizens that ILLEGALLY CROSSED the border.

        Remember NO OTHER NATION WOULD EVEN ALLOW THOSE WHO ILLEGALLY CROSSED THEIR BORDERS TO RETURN HOME MUCH LESS RUN FREE ON THE STREETS OF THEIR NATION WITH GOVERNMENT SUPPORT. They arrest them and charge them with numerous crimes from SPYING to SMUGGLING.

        In fact numerous US CITIZENS who accidentally cross unmarked borders without proper papers are detained sometimes for YEARS for nothing more than crossing that border.

        In fact there was or is a US CITIZEN detained in Mexico because he went down a dirt road that had NO US SIDE MARKINGS indicating it lead into Mexico when he reached the only border crossing that was marked it was manned by the Mexican authorities who ARRESTED HIM and refused to even allow him to turn around and go back to where he was INTENDING to go when he found out that it was not the road he thought it was. Their excuse he was EXERCISING a constitutional right that MEXICANS do not have so they FORCED him to go on into Mexico and arrested him.

        So do not give me that OPEN BORDERS nonsense that people should AUTOMATICALLY be given the same rights as US CITIZENS just because they made it across the border.

        The only rights they have are ones established by TREATIES the US has with the government of the nation they are ACTUAL CITIZENS of nothing else especially not any CONSTITUTIONAL rights SPECIFICALLY stated as the rights of “THE PEOPLE” who as defined by the US Constitution are the CITIZENS of this nation NOT EVERYONE ON THE PLANET except US citizens.

        • SeanM62

          Breitbart? Right. What next? MAD Magazine?

          • John McComas

            You’re deflecting…..

          • Terry Butts

            FOLLOW THE LINKED SOURCES CNN and other LIBERAL MEDIA refuse to report the information as they are PROMOTING this nonsense.

            Why not READ THE REST OF THE POST instead of stopping just because I used a NEWS SOURCE LIBERALS REJECT.

            Should I link the NEWS about the woman killed in COLD BLOOD by a criminal that was ILLEGAL after he STOLE a gun. He was found NOT GUILTY after they finally decided to go with the THIRD story he came out with and IGNORED the forensic evidence that showed the bullet did not RICOCHET from the ground up through the victim.

            They even refused to allow his PAST CONVICTIONS for violent acts or his MULTIPLE prior deportations.

            Besides NONE OF THE IMMIGRATION DEBATE has any bearing on PASSING A BUDGET to fund the GOVERNMENT.

            IF any of US tried to EXTORT the government by demanding they MAKE A LAW before we PAID them we would be in jail.

            The fact is the FACTION that CAUSED THE SHUTDOWN ignored their job all through the time DACA was active because they expected it to just keep getting extensions like several other programs that should have been addressed but have not.

          • Jeffcunnin

            Very weak comeback.

        • J. P. Lynch

          Terry. I think the young man in the truck going the wrong way to mexico was actually a US soldier. And Pres Trump got him released from the Mexican prison (?). I am going to research that right now. And you are correct, no other country on earth treats illegals as well as the USA! Look what happened to Otto Warmbier in Communist North Korea,, And most daca people get welfare, food stamps, Medicaid , education, etc etc. and don’t pay taxes to the USA!! And these DACA people do nothing to apply for citizenship for years and years!! Why is that ?
          There was a Mexican man in Detroit recently that was deported – he was there 30 years and never applied for US citizenship. Again, why not??

          • Terry Butts

            I think you may be right about him being a US soldier though I did not hear about a release but that would be expected from the mainstream media if Trump was the one that got him released.

            Thing is as long as that road is unmarked and they refuse to allow people to return once they find themselves at that check point where they finally learn they were headed to Mexico by mistake he may not be the only one in that situation and probably was not the first to find themselves in that situation.

          • J. P. Lynch

            Hopefully his experience will be a lesson to others driving toward the Mexican border . Have a nice weekend.

          • Terry Butts

            Hopefully and Hopefully the US will at least put some kind of sign on the road stating it leads into Mexico as the entire incident could have been avoided by one simple road sign saying heading into Mexico etc. on the US side.

  • iwojimafan

    David Brooks is just another so called RINO who needs to join up with the DemocRAT party as his PEA BRAIN can’t accept the TRUTH along with COMMON SENSE. I suggest he pack his bags and join his DemocRAT Brethren in N. Korea, Maybe Cuba or Venezuela and see how Social Fascists destroy a Country

    • SeanM62

      How about most of Europe, countries that think we are now a s%^thole country?

      • Jim McCormack

        My sister lives in Sweden. It’s gone, as is most of Europe. Health care -compromised, rapes 4-5 times a day. Can’t go out at night , freedom gone. France a shit-hole trash pit now. BEEN OVER THERE LATELY. PLACE IS A MESS. AND IT STINKS. MOST OF AMERICA’S SHIT HOLES ARE TOTALLY UNDER DEM CONTROL.

        • SeanM62

          Mostly in places like Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, Kentucky, the Carolinas, Georgia. Real Dem strongholds??

      • iwojimafan

        It seems that you are a Social Fascist and want all the ILLEGAL ALIEN LAW BREAKERS TO JUST BECOME CITIZENS WHILE THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME TO AMERICA HAVE TO WAIT YEARS. Your Idiotic Thinking belies logic, but wait i forgot, that Liberal DemocRAT Social Fascists feel it is alright to break the laws and give all these Illegal Aliens the right to vote.
        The reason the Idiotic countries in Europe think were a Sh#thole country id there leaders have to be the Biggest Dumbest Complete Moronic Idiots for allowing there countries to be Invaded by people who are nothing but low IQ and are destroying these countries with there Sharia law along with creating a HUGE Rise in Crimes especially RAPE of non Muslim women. So the thing Trump is doing is stopping America from becoming a sh#thole country. So my advice to you is open up your little Pea Brain to the Truth and quit being a Brainwashed Social Fascist DemocRAT.

          YOU DON’T DESERVE A RESPONSE; EVEN IF YOU WERE CONCEIVED ON iwo jima

          • iwojimafan

            Hey A##hole, if you said I don’t deserve a response but you did, which shows everyone that you are the Typical LEFT WING PEA BRAIN THAT’S ENCASED IN A CEMENT HEAD SO NO TRUTH CAN PENETRATE YOUR CEMENT HEAD.
            You and the rest of the ANTI AMERICAN P#Ke SCUMBAGS IN THE NAZI FASCIST DemocRAT Party and the Lunatic News Media like CNN which stands for COMMUNIST NUT NETWORK and MSNBC which stands for MORONIC SCUMBAG NAZI B#LLSHITTERS C#CKSUCKERS are nothing but VILE VERMIN and need to be exterminated.
            WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA?

      • Mary Reynolds

        They sure don’t mind taking our money though. I say stop all foreign aid to these countries who hate us and start taking care of our own country. Why do we continue to support all these countries who hate us? Maybe if we do that we will have the money to support the illegals who the Democrats want to give citizenship to. They do this because they feel these illegals will vote Democratic.

        • SeanM62

          Much of “foreign aid” requires the receiving country to use the money to purchase US-made goods with the money. Thus, no small part of foreign aid is a hand-out to US companies to sell goods abroad. This is smart, as if the countries purchase these goods, they are locked in to further purchases of parts, etc. But “foreign aid” is a popular target because it sounds as if we are super-generous when actually we are not purely generous.

          • Mary Reynolds

            What the heck does Afghanistan purchase from the U.S.? It seems to me that they couldn’t buy a hamburger. Or for that matter a lot of these countries couldn’t buy anything that we produce because they haven’t got the money to buy anything. Look at how they live. Get Real. Of course Afghanistan has the opium !! But wait, I guess we are the ones buying that from them.

  • luvsgunsandamerica

    If we had representative government instead of a bunch of cretins with personal agendas ,trying to enrichen themselves on our dime.If only the founding fathers foresaw the need for term limits and no salaries or lifetime perks,we would still be an awesome Republic.Brooks is a liberal stooge with the IQ of a stump.

  • gerryunger

    Trump is not a coward when it comes to negotiation, ( I don’t see any talking head worth billions, or working for free). The issue confronting all of us is neither party is engaging in any form of “principled negotiation.” Instead they concentrate on Self grandiosely. As for the so called Dreamers, they are supposed to be enrolled in college or in the military ( Obama’s executive order). They have had ample time to apply for citizenship.
    Life is about choices. Illegal is illegal, Politicians are complicit in Obama’s illegal usurping the Constitution. This is not President Trump’s doing. You want to blame someone blame the House & Senate for being inept. When we choose to enforce only some of the laws, be are no longer a nation of laws.

    Brooks is a total idiot. Never had been anywhere, done anything but write leftist drivel!

    The NYT is a great embarrassment. Their bias is revolting.

    I am ashamed that we have stupid people like David Brooks and Dimocrats (intentional spelling).

    No law against being stupid. Schumer proved that.

    • J. P. Lynch

      Good post. No cure for stupid either! Liberalism is a mental disease and

          That would work also !! I read recently she is not eligible to run for congress !

  • CHUCK ADKINS

    The only embarrassing thing we saw was in the behavior of a political party, wanting to embarrass the new president, because he managed to get more done in one year without their help, and they actually believed it was going to impress the public that they were the best political party as a result. All it proved was how low our political structure has gotten since I was a young man. You could disagree with the opposition party, but in a respectful manner, and never put the very people who put you in office to serve them, in such a despicable position as a child who lost, and was picking up his marbles and running home. I could never vote for anyone so narrow minded, that placed our nation in such a weakened military position. Yes, I’m a vet, and proud of it. Chuck Adkins

  • J. P. Lynch

    David Brooks is a progressive liberal that is part of the biased press and is part of the problem with journalism today! They gave lying progressive Obama a pass on so many illegal things he and his administration did its disgusting. Now he wants to take the moral high ground and pretend he’s embarrassed. Give me a break!
    Brooks needs to act like an adult and finally tell the truth and have respect for the White House and President Trump!!

  • Kim LaMela

    Funny We are Ashamed of the NYT for the Outrageously Bias Coverage of the President of our Country along with the Rest of the Liberal Media. Especially since you all know his Policy’s have Brought our Country in one Year out of the Obama/Democrat Mess for the Last eight Years. The NYT and the Rest of Liberal Media have done more Obstruction to the Progress of America then Anyone, You all have Disgraced your Profession and have lost credibility.

  • ozzie236

    David Brooks is an out of touch socialist, Who cares what he has to say he’s been caught in many lies in his reporting … hey David, America is embarrassed of you. He is why the press is rapidly becoming irrelevant.

  • JOANIE

    Schumer and the liberals are nothing but a bunch of EVIL AND DISGUSTING MORONS who are out to destroy AMERICA along with OBAMA and his administration .They are mad because they want 13% increase in their paycheck and because they aren’t getting pay offs from the Pharma and other pac lobby’s! THEY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT AMERICANS…..They want the illegals to get everything and the hell with the USA CITIZENS!

  • Sweet willy

    golly, is this like when michelle said that “this was the first time she felt like an American”, when ocrapo was sworn in with his koran, behind closed doors.? If any one from the NYT is embarrassed, it should be them and their page of daily retractions. :>) In the meantime, they need only look to the politicians and past whiz bangs that have corrupted our government. Take your dimocraps and go find a safe place. If I want the real news, I can find it in the weekly’s, found at the super market end caps, cause the NYT don’t have it any more. Remember, “All the news that fit to print”? MAGA
