Alphabet Inc.'s Google delivered a sharp message to staff travelling overseas who may be impacted by a new executive order on immigration from President Donald Trump: Get back to the U.S. now.

Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai slammed Trump's move in a note to employees Friday, telling them that more than 100 company staff are affected by the order.

The Trump regime's measures also impact the visa program for, among other long-time US allies, The Netherlands. Did anyone tell the Trump regime that it's a very bad idea to make it harder for your third largest investor to, uh, actually invest? Are these men really that dumb?

Interesting to note, though, that Google had to be actually impacted by the Trump regime before it spoke up (only in an internal memo, but still). Meanwhile, Elon Musk is kissing the ground Trump walks on, and Tim Cook, CEO of the most arrogantly and smugly (supposedly) liberal tech company is meeting with Trump, Trump's daughter (...?) and other Republican leaders. From other tech giants who always touted the liberal horn of equality and progressiveness - a deafening, but quite revealing, silence.

So far, it seems like the tech industry leaders are opting for appeasement instead of resistance to the Trump regime's corruption, conflicts of interest, racism, war on science, and Christian extremism. I would be disappointed if it wasn't so utterly predictable to anyone who wasn't blinded by the fake smiles, hollow promises, and empty praise of equality, science, and progressive ideals.

They still have time to be remembered as people who stood up for those that need it the most. I'm afraid, though, we will remember them as spineless cowards, hiding behind shareholders while the free world crumbles to dust.

I hope it'll be worth it.

I hear a lot of US Citizens making very very heinous remarks about our President. Maybe that's the wrong approach? I don't hear people making arguments against policy, all I hear is potty-mouth 8 yr olds whining against the President of the United States.

Please, by all means, make your argument. Just don't be an 8 yr. old (unless you're 8).

Oh jeezus, are you for real?

No 8 year olds typing here. I have a 9 year old, I'm a grown ass man.

Don John is the biggest con working in america. "It's good to be king" is right. 27% of american adults bought that act. They are grenade rollers.

But Don, their vessel, he's got problems:
Serial sexual assaulter. Serial liar. Serial braggart. Serial narcissism. Weird public crush on his daughter.

Sociopath?

The worst of human traits. I know many pray and point to his money. Those are the worst of us all, the followers of the evil scamming for their own little piece.

His 3rd wife? Parents are communists. Lied about her education for over a decade. Lied about her modeling career. Possibly lied about her visa status. More of a potential sleeper agent than barry soweto ever was.

Shall I go on? You don't even have to get to his lack of coherent policy. The man should be in prison, not in the white house. And the evidence is everywhere, every day.
