See, earlier by Ann Coulter: Trump’s Failing On Immigration. Don’t Ask Me To Lie About It

Three weeks ago, after Donald J. Trump abandoned the government shutdown and declared a national emergency to get some funding for his border wall, I asked: Did Trump Save His Presidency? Maybe—IF He Doesn’t INCREASE Legal Immigration. Unfortunately, and incredibly given his campaign promises, Trump has repeatedly said since then that he has indeed pivoted to increasing legal immigration—reportedly under the influence of his daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka and Jared Kushner. Trump may still be saved by the Party of Hysterical Screeching’s inability to accept even victory (because increasing legal immigration would be demographic victory for them) at his hands. But in the interim, without Presidential leadership, it appears likely that the Congressional Stupid Party will not take up the various measures that could stem America’s immigration disaster—above all, the Merkel-type catastrophe now unfolding on the southern border.

Weirdly, Trump abruptly attacked Ann Coulter, one of his earliest and most eloquent backers, on Twitter Saturday night, perhaps signaling he is repudiating the immigration patriotism he won on—or perhaps that he knows Ann is right:

In reality of course, “major sections of the wall” have not been built. And the administration suffered yet another defeat in the courts last week over its attempts to enforce immigration law. [In another blow to Trump, judge rules in favor of ACLU in family separations case, by Maria Sacchetti, The Washington Post, March 8, 2019] Trump is fighting, to his credit, but he simply is not winning on the border.

Coulter has consistently demanded the president implement the immigration platform he campaigne d on and her recent (admittedly savage) criticism isn’t much different from what she has said since the beginning of Trump’s tenure. See, recently Ann Coulter To Donald Trump: Hey, Commander! Start Commanding!

The difference lies in Trump himself. [Anti-Immigration Groups See Trump’s Calls for More Legal Immigrants as a Betrayal, by Michael D. Shear, The New York Times, March 8, 2019]

Jared Kushner is currently leading negotiations with the Cheap Labor Lobby to craft a bill that will likely increase guest worker visas. It’s unclear what exactly will end up in this legislation, but it is guaranteed to enrage immigration patriots. [Globalist Business Groups with Koch, Bush Ties Dominate Immigration Talks at White House, by John Binder, Breitbart, February 26, 2019]

Congressional Republicans also seem uninterested in immigration patriotism.

Many Republicans want to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration on the border—the one good thing Trump has recently done on immigration–because it goes against their “principles.” Thirteen House Republicans voted to block the executive order last month. “The president doesn’t get to just declare an emergency for something that Congress has deliberated many times over the past several years,” Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, a libertarian, said of why he sponsored legislation to stifle the national emergency. [Rep. Justin Amash: ‘The President Doesn’t Get To Just Declare an Emergency’, by Joe Seyton, Reason, February 26, 2019]. Amash was joined by a group primarily made up of squishy Republicans. [Meet the 13 Republicans who rebuked Trump over his national emergency, by Bridget Bowman, Roll Call, February 26, 2019]

Trump’s executive order is receiving even more pushback from Senate Republicans. Senators such as Shelly Moore-Capito (R-West Virginia) and Susan Collins think the national emergency is “concerning” and believe Trump already has enough wall money without the declaration. [GOP wants Trump to back off on emergency, by Alexander Bolton, The Hill, March 6, 2019]

Four Republican Senators have announced their intention to vote for legislation to block the national emergency: Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Thom Tillis, and usual Trump ally Rand Paul. More are likely to announce their support for this measure as the vote approaches this week. Pat Toomey and Todd Young, both who are close with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, want to propose resolutions to give cucky Republicans a way to voice their disapproval without voting with the Democrats.

The resolutions would convey the message that Republicans want border security, but don’t want to take the necessary actions to fund said border security. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah wants to pass a resolution that would restrict the president’s emergency powers and place a 30-day or 60-day time limit on how long they can be in effect without congressional approval.

McConnell announced Monday that he could not prevent passage of legislation blocking Trump’s national emergency declaration. The New York Times declared this announcement as proof that Trump has lost influence within his own party. [Trump’s Grip Shows Signs of Slipping as Senate Prepares to Block Wall Emergency, By Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Emily Cochrane, The New York Times, March 4, 2019]

The good news is that Trump will most likely veto this legislation and Congress doesn’t have enough votes to override the veto. The President is also threatening senators who vote for the block with stiff consequences. [Senate Republicans divided ahead of vote on disapproval of national emergency, by Ted Barrett, CNN, March 7, 2019] There is little chance the President will sign a bill that overrides his own action, even if his close advisers tell him to do so. Trump’s instincts would never allow such behavior.

The bad news: it’s a sign congressional Republicans have no will to support immigration patriotism at the moment. This is very bad considering the immigration bills that may come before them in the near future, including the possible White House measure on guest worker visas. House Democrats are set to introduce a new DREAM Act that will legalize at least 1.8 million illegals and extend Temporary Protected Status for hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals.

Congressional Republicans need to get their act together to kill these pieces of legislation. But they may be at the forefront in support of them. Last fall, multiple Republican senators, including the appalling Thom Tillis, proposed a bill that would double the number of H-2b visas and screw over low-skilled American workers. And last month, several Republicans—alas, including supposed immigration patriot Tom Cotton—championed the easement of some regulations on H-1b visas.

The better hope for killing a guest worker expansion lies with the Democrats. Anyone with a brain realizes this would be bad for American workers and benefits greedy corporations. Democrats have never been too fond of this plan, as evidenced by their skepticism about its expansion in the Gang of Eight Amnesty. [Gang of 8 defends guest worker plan, by Seung Min Kim, Politico, May 13, 2013]. What better way to portray Trump as a phony populist in 2020 than to skewer him for this gift to the cheap labor lobby?

The House Democrats’ proposed DREAM Act will probably go nowhere–unless Trump includes that idea in his immigration package. There are some positive signs that the White House won’t do this; and that Republicans would block its passage. Kushner floated the idea of giving green cards for Dreamers in exchange for wall funding during shutdown negotiations earlier this year. That plan was firmly opposed by conservative senators who thought it was insanity [A “go big” idea to end the shutdown, by Jonathan Swan, Axios, January 23, 2019]

Though Congress and the White House seem set on terrible immigration ideas, it’s worth remembering there are alternative patriotic immigration proposals they could push. All of these ideas would not likely pass the current Congress, but they would shape the immigration debate in a positive direction ahead of the 2020 election.

  • El Chapo Act:

This bill proposed by Sen. Ted Cruz would confiscate the money of drug lords like Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and allocate it to building the wall. Cruz reintroduced the proposal in February and believes the government could obtain $14 billion out of El Chapo’s drug profits through this law [Sen. Ted Cruz’s solution to border wall impasse: Make El Chapo pay for it, by Deanna Paul, The Washington Post, February 13, 2019]. This would be more money than Trump currently has for wall construction and would send a strong message to the cartels. The president himself has said Sen. Cruz’s idea is “interesting.” There is no reason Republicans shouldn’t hold a vote on this bill and make Democrats stand up for drug cartels.

  • Kate’s Law:

This bill, named after Kate Steinle who was murdered by an illegal alien, would institute harsher penalties for illegals caught re-entering the country. This measure passed the House in 2017, but it died in the (n.b. GOP-controlled)Senate [Senate Has Not Voted On Kate’s Law Five Months After It Passed The House With Bipartisan Support, by Will Racke, The Daily Caller, December 1, 2017].

Trump should resurrect the bill. Yes, it’s passage is less likely with a Democrat-controlled House. That doesn’t matter. The president needs to convey he still wants to crack down on illegal immigration and that his opponents favor criminal aliens over American citizens.

Along with the El Chapo Act, probably has the best chance at passage among the ideas the Trump admin could push as multiple Democrats voted for it back in 2017. There is still a chance enough Democrats would vote for it again to achieve passage.

  • No Sanctuary for Criminals Act:

This act would cut Sanctuary Cities off from federal law enforcement funds and it was also passed by the House in 2017, albeit by a smaller margin than Kate’s Law. It also went nowhere in the (GOP-controlled) Senate. If Republicans want to highlight the chaos created by Democrat policies, they should revive this bill and remind Americans that Trump stands up for law and order. This act, however, does have less chance of passage as it was more strongly opposed by Democrats [Dems block Senate vote on sanctuary cities, by Alexander Bolton, The Hill, February 13, 2018]

  • Mandatory e-Verify:

Requiring all American companies to use e-verify seems almost too good of an idea for Republicans. The bill explicitly protects American workers and puts the onus on employers to make sure they only hire those who are here legally. This should receive bipartisan support as both parties want to portray themselves as the true protectors of American workers.

House Republicans included the measure in their DACA deal last year, so they are aware of this proposal [Goodlatte offers E-Verify mandate, farm worker fix for immigration bill, by John Bresnahan, Politico, June 26, 2018]. We just need one patriot Republican to stand up and offer mandatory e-Verify. This proposal also has a decent chance of passage.

  • Override the Flores Settlement:

This 1997 court decision has handcuffed the Trump administration’s ability to enforce immigration law and is directly responsible for the current border collapse. It has allowed liberal judges to deem it unlawful for the government to detain illegal alien minors for more than 20 days. It also has allowed for these minors to have better access to asylum as they remain in America undetained. Some Republican lawmakers, including Ted Cruz, suggested legislative action in the last congressional session to correct this loophole [The History of the Flores Settlement, by Matt Sussis, Center for Immigration Studies, February 11, 2019].

A bill to end this policy would not likely pass as many Republicans shrank from the Trump’s family detention policies last summer [Here Are the Republicans Opposing Migrant Family Separation, by Jeff Cirillo, Roll Call, June 19, 2018]. That doesn’t change the fact that the Trump administration needs this legislation to avoid further court losses and to shift public discussion on family detention to focus on Democratic preference for illegal immigrants.

  • Eliminating birthright citizenship:

There is no way that this idea would pass Congress, but it does have the backing of the President and one prominent Republican senator. Trump said he may eliminate birthright citizenship by executive order and Sen. Lindsey Graham proposed a bill to do so right before the 2018 election. [Lindsey Graham Seconds Trump Proposal to End Birthright Citizenship, by Niels Lesniewski, Roll Call, October 30, 2018]

Those plans, however, seem to have disappeared since then. But Trump still seems interested in the issue—he mentioned it in his speech to CPAC—and events may prompt the president to revisit the topic. A bill would cause an uproar within Congress and among the Republican caucus, let alone an executive order. And that’s good. If Trump wants to have a serious discussion on citizenship and reduce the negative effects of mass immigration, then he must force this issue into the public square.

Javanka would likely oppose any such effort, so perhaps their White House influence would have to be minimalized from what it is today for this to happen.

  • The RAISE Act:

The RAISE Act would halve America’s yearly immigration intake and structure our system to be more “merit-based.” It would also cap annual refugee numbers at 50,000 and eliminate the diversity visa lottery. The bill was introduced by Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue with Trump’s backing in August 2017. But (again, despite GOP control of Congress) nothing happened.

If Trump wants to show he still puts America first ahead of 2020, he could resurrect the RAISE Act. There is no chance it would pass, but it would force Republicans to run on the plan and win the seats necessary to pass it in Trump’s second term.

These are some positive things Trump and Republicans can do. Whether they choose to do them is up to them.

It’s not looking good.

  1. Ann should be screeching about congressional Republicans. Or about the traitors in Trump’s Administration (and family).

    Maybe Trump thinks if he advocates for more legal immigration the left will oppose it. Or maybe his head is full of worms.

    Trump might as well be Hillary where foreign policy is concerned. It would be nice if somebody sane would oppose Trump in the upcoming primary. I know of no such person.

    As far as voting none of that matters. I vote my skin color.

  5. I continue to be surprised by how little courage now in office the president has.

    Don’t need an elchapo act, the activities engaged in are against the law. And forfeiture laws in this regard as careless as they have employed against citizens are already in force.

    I am deeply saddened by the murder of Miss Stein, we don’t need another for which is already illegal, murder and violating US soverignty

    We don’t need more legislation to send minors back to their parents or their home countries – stop detaining and return them.

    Excuse me the Constitution was written for US citizens and their descedants. If you are not a descendant of a citizen — you can become one by birth — how do I know — it says so in the pre-amble.

    The act in question is backpedalling without admitting that one is back pedalling.

    What we need are managers with a belief in the US citizen and the US period. This far the chair appears to remain vacant.

    But Trump was never against legal immigration. He was only against illegal immigration.

    In that way, Trump was on par with most mainstream Americans. Far left loons and WN wiggers don’t count as normal people, and their views are to be ignored.

  10. Donald John Trump. is a very different guy now, 180-degree-different at times from campaign Trump and early President Trump, where he seemed to be genuinely trying to tack against the wind and get some things done within a threatening, hostile framework.

    We should take seriously the idea, that ‘they’ have been slowly and persistently drugging his food, making the President susceptible to control-suggestions by those physically near to him. Seems like around the time of the gov shutdown abort is when they finally totally cracked him … and now even Pelosi says ‘no impeachment’, as if a ‘reward’ for Trump’s total submissiveness.

    We may never know, and in a sense it’s not key whether he was a clever faker to begin with (hugely unlikely I think), got deeply blackmailed, or has been drugged and mind-game manipulated … but my thought is to remember Donald John Trump like he was in his best moments, whilst accepting trumpism may have been thwarted… and it is now time to figure out what else can be done before the USA crisis-collapse finally hits

  11. Trump appears to be trying to get protection from the Republican party in exchange for increasing number of legal immigrants. The protection he wants is from Democratic efforts to use the legal system (commit barratry) to imprisonTrump, his family, and associates, and to close down his enterprises.

    It is difficult to see how such protection could be provided, but Trump is clearly trying to buy something. The very sudden change on legal immigration makes that unmistakable. While I have no objection to Trump or anybody else buying things, they should not be buying them with my citizenship rights. That is called “theft” and, carried far enough, “homicide”, and I’m against it, especially when I’m the person being robbed or, as they say, “dispossessed”. As it is, there are important parts of the United States that I cannot enter for fear of my life; that wasn’t the case prior to the 1960s Democratic takeover, and is the direct result of Federal policy since then. Obviously, I regard the policy as being a failure, and believe it needs some drastic change.

    Trump could still change his ground and become a revolutionary leader (even in the form of Lincoln, Wilson, or FDR), but it is not clear just now that Trump either wants to be or could be a revolutionary leader. Being a revolutionary leader would involve considerable risk of failure until Trump had established himself. Trump as revolutionary leader would also mean the end of the American federal government as we now know it, but at this point any outcome involves the end of the American federal government as we now know it.

    Of course, jumping from being a revolutionary leader to just another collaborator has its own risks. Trump could end up with no supporters at all. If the Republican Party rejects Trump’s overtures, he might switch back to revolutionary leader out of sheer lack of other available roles. He would have to do something spectacular to reestablish his bona fides, though.

    The present change in Trump is not good. As I’ve said before, a change without actual repudiation of governmental forms would likely have caused the least damage, and that kind of change has now become considerably less likely. Trump had appeared to be the only person who could keep the Federal government’s legitimacy.

    I think Trump had it in mind to be a hero to ordinary Americans. But he compromised himself to big Jew money because he is cheap. And he threw easy popularity away by giving the big tax cut to the rich instead of the middle class (as Bill Black points out) because he is just not bright enough. His complete collapse, however, must be due to Epstein-Mossad pedophile blackmail. The evidence is Trump making Epstein’s sweetheart-deal federal attorney, Alex Acosta, his secretary of labor. See the video testimony by a woman, the same age as Ivanka, who was part of Epstein’s pedophile stable, telling of her encounter with Trump at the age of thirteen. Trump’s people said during the campaign that no such person existed. Maybe she is lying. She looks truthful to me. And if not, why the Acosta appointment?

    No point is served by the circus against Trump except to have the red scoundrels and the blue scoundrels suck up all the oxygen, leaving that the only game in town.

  19. As for the legal immigration pandering. The US does not need a single person from anywhere to do anything.

    And anyone who thinks that such pandering is going to import citizens who are conservatives or even republicans for that matter is ignoring a reason the country has shifted so dramatically left. Even legal immigrants from the west in our modern age bring with them expectations about what government should be providing.

    Take one of our two closest allies either France or Great Britain and consider their most conservative citizens — that’s the closest you get to get to anything resembling a republican in the US

    1. they will promote national healthcare
    2. support same sex anything and everything
    3. large social dystpoia

    and oddly enough 4. more immigration – “the legal kind”

    5. support of business even when they behave unethically

    6. support legislation about how one “should feel” and punish the expression of the same

    7. I am dubious of the suggestion that we are going to be importing people of a more conservative ethos.

    Miss Coulter is tied to hip with the president on this matter, but there is little in the way of support that it will advantage the country in any way – even importing the rich they so eagerly desire.

    It would be nice if the leadership we had actually advocated support for the US citizens and this country.

    Sounds like we need a seven year immigration moratorium, as opposed to five.

    I have to say i’m disappointed in Trump, and I was one of his first supporters
    .
    He’s got a pen, a phone, several of them actually, he should actually give them a reason to impeach him, you know, save them a little bit of trouble. He’s the President, he don’t need no damn legislation, just pick up the phone, make that call, “The dreamers? Deport them all, today, by noon, at the latest. Ain’t that what we got all that ICE and Coke and Hummers for? And as soon as get done with that, deport all them illegals too, hell, them sorry folks didn’t vote for me, well some of them did, let them stay, but the rest, get those SOBs outa here.”

    “Investigations? Investigate what? Well you just tell them SOBs I’ll give them something to investigate, like right now, Tanks on the freeway, let them investigate that, whom put them there and why? Well I’ll tell them why, cause I’m sick to death of these corrupt SOBs taking everything the American people have, and I’m going to put a stop to it!”

    “What, Mike? A judge? Who put that SOB in charge? I did? And let me tell you, his ass is fired, get that SOB outa here!”

    “What, Sessions recused himself? Can he do that, I mean without checking with me? Well that SOB is fired, get his ass and the rest of him outa here, right now. What you mean confirmation, for his replacement? Well fork those SOBs in Congress, let them go get their hair fixed, or something, I’m confirming that SOB right here and now.”

    You know Trump is so far out of any normal OODA loop, that he should just keep moving at warp drive, you know, blitz ’em with stuff, legal illegal, it doesn’t really matter with this bunch of socialists infecting the government. Want to make a deal on the border, just take that big bag of cash down there and deal directly with the people at the state and local level.
    All this crossing this and dotting that is just a way the “State” slows up and controls everything.
    He should have never planned on serving a whole term, just ram through everything you can by hook or crook so fast that it will take them 100 years to figure it all out and even begin to roll any of it back. IF they threatened him while he was doing this stuff, he could just bring up “the button” or his new buddy Kim’s “button” or something.

    “INF treaty? It’s obsolete. U.N.? Obsolete as well, and a dang good piece of property to boot. The Russians? They are so last century, back there with Mitt! Taxes? An economic proven failure!

Nuke ’em now, talk about it later! A thousand years from now they will still be saying don’t fork with the USA, or Trump!”

    “Declassify, Mike. Everything, no limits, send it all out on twitter, 140 characters at a time. By the time they get it all figured out we’ll be in hog heaven, I’ll resign and hand it all over to Pence, and you can come on down and join me and Melania in Florida. We will watch the launch of the new USS Trump carrier on TV, and the talking head discussion about whether I’m running again in 2020. Best move we ever made, all Constitutional too, you know, through the lens of modern society, the art of the deal!”

  28. I voted for Trump only to find him to be a fraud as is Helliary and in fact both are two sides of the same counterfeit coin ie schekel. It took the Roman Empire some 600 years to collapse but in the case of the US it seems as though we will not last 300 years with such fools and Zionist puppets and Zionists in control of America.

    Illegal unlimited immigration is a Zionist policy to destroy America and lower the living standards to third world levels to allow the merger of America into the North American Union merging the US and Mexico and Canada and with a new currency know as the Amero, ie a scam like the EU!

    Ann Coulter is right, Trump has broken almost every promise that he made to get elected and now his loyality is to Israel and Kushner is his handler for the Zionist who are in control of the US gov. Congress would be better know as the lower house of the Knesset and TEL AVIV is the actual working capital of the US!

    The illusion of choice
    Both parties are owned by the elites. The 2016 election cycle cost a record $6.8 billion. The 2018 midterms cost $5.2 billion, making them the most expensive midterms in history. Voting changes nothing in America. It merely gives you the illusion of choice and control over your future.

    Meet your owners
    Realistically speaking, these are the billionaires who own us by default. Our “public servants” are anything but public servants. They are puppets of the wealthiest people in America, who do their masters’ bidding without regard for the well-being of we the people. We will never outvote the elites.

The buying and selling process has simply exploded since the 2010 Supreme Court decision in the Citizens United vs. The Federal Election Commission case. The money flowing into the 2016 election cycle broke the bank, and the 2018 midterm election cycle was the “richest” in history. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who you vote for. A simple look at the ever-burgeoning massive amounts of money funneled into our election cycle will tell you which masters our politicians serve. It is not you.

    Much as I’ve grown afraid of what Trump may do internationally before the next election, I don’t put too much blame on him for the GOP tax cut. He was much too distracted to focus on the details, and farmed it out to the Koch-brothers stooge, Speaker Paul Ryan – who also opposed him on immigration. Ryan is a disciple of Ayn Rand (“The Virtue of Selfishness”), who hated government, loved the rich, and didn’t much care for the working class riff-raff. Trump would have signed any tax cut that Congress put before him, as that was a campaign promise he could keep. It is the only piece of legislation passed by the GOP and it is failing, with predictably larger deficits, bigger than Obama’s, as far as the eye can see.

  42. @Whitewolf

    This may be true in a general sense, but there are still a few Republicans worth voting for — Steve King, for one example. Admittedly they can’t actually get anything done, and speaking out for whites will get them slapped down by their own party, but they are the best we have and we ought not abandon them. The national Republican party will primary them if possible, but will tolerate them if they continue winning. Without them we would, indeed, have no representation at all.

That said, I do not wish to see Trump & his family thrown to the prosecutorial lions in NYC who seem a little too eager to punish political foes.

    I think even the Roman Empire ended with more grace.

    The present consensus is that the Roman Empire ended for much the same reason as the Late Bronze Age civilizations ended – not enough resources to support the Imperial superstructure. The Late Bronze Age, some say, was ended by a very long drought – long enough to be considered climate change. The Roman Empire was ended by a climate change (cooling) coupled with importation of exotic diseases through the Eurasia/Africa trade routes it supported.

    So what is taking out the West? It has to be something big, and it has to be something that’s not obvious because it is too big to be noticed (rather like curvature of the earth, or the flat impossibility of centralizing all information flow in an economy of any sort).

    The USSR was brought down by what, fundamentally? Even today, I find it hard to say. Massive misallocation of resources? Enforcement of a way of life that its inhabitants could clearly see was not necessary? Utter disregard for the lives and health of its citizens? Simply putting the bullies in charge? I’d guess that the common factor was an aristocracy that insisted on complete control of whatever it wanted to control — philosopher kings, in a way. Such a system cannot run a viable industrial society because it just doesn’t have the bandwidth or the sensors to make all the decisions necessary. From the earliest days off the USSR, it required a complete sector run by professional criminals to compensate for misallocation of resources by the formal government.

    So what in the US is analogous? Where is the enormous misallocation of capital of a magnitude comparable to that of Late Antiquity around the Mediterranean basin?

    I’m beginning to think that the the enormous misallocation of resources required to support economically useless Western cities is responsible for the West’s decline. I’ve lived through that, and had a very good seat at the spectacle sometimes.

    You might recall how, back in the early AD 2100s, there was considerable propaganda about how wonderful it was that US manufacturing was being taken by Asia. One propagandist was Thomas L. Friedman [1] (who later changed his mind). His point was that telecommunications, “workflow software [2]” and very low shipping costs [3] had greatly reduced the cost of distributing manufacturing. He should, IMHO, have included software driven capital equipment and Western welfare costs.

    What Friedman didn’t point out was that earlier versions of the same things that made production in Asia feasible had, about 50 years before (c.a. AD 1950s), made production in the American countryside economic and production in the American city uneconomic [3a]. That was the time of NYC’s first brush with bankruptcy [4].

    Not too surprisingly, the American revolution in politics that finished off the old Anglo Saxon Protestants happened in the late AD 1960s. Having lived through it and spent the Summer of Love in the East Village (I had an apartment, $30/month) I can say that it was a lot like what the Ghost Dance [5] must have been. The entire pattern turned out to have been lifted from Hitler’s takedown of the Weimar Republic, and emphasized a mystic triumph of the will, this time through good intentions and sheer virtue. Hunter S. Thompson, perhaps put it best:

    There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. And that, I think, was the handle – that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting – on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark – that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

    [6]

    Why the similarity? Because there was nothing left, not really, for the city dwellers, and on some level they knew it. The Printer’s Union was claiming lifetime wages because their old block long printing presses were now obsolete. NYC docks had been obsolete for a long time and were now simply unused industrial space, no activity, and the old dockside warehouses were closed. The NYC cheap good section would soon be destroyed to make way for the World Trade Center, and was in any case destroyed economically by imposition of a 12% tax on all NYC transactions during the 1960s. The old ethnic neighborhoods were being forced out of NYC into the suburbs [7]. There wasn’t any hope of restoring the old system.

    So NYC (or its remaining inhabitants) was reinvented. The argument was apparently like that between George Washington Carver and W. E. B. Du Bois. Carver said that the Blacks could and should integrate into the industrial economy. W. E. B. Du Bois essentially said that Blacks could not integrate into the industrial economy, and should instead become a pressure group that, like Tammany Hall’s professional politicians, vote fixers, ward workers, and so on, earned its living from politics. W. E. B. Du Bois won the debate and the future. Well, the cities decided much the same thing. No more manufacturing, that’s over, we make our living by selling our vote in exchange for favorable laws, judges, Presidents.

    And that’s what the cities have done, with some success. _If you don’t count immigrants who arrived after AD 1970 and their descendants_, the cities are almost empty, as deserted as Rome two generation after Rome’s aqueducts were destroyed. Immigrants who arrived after AD 1970 and their descendants are living on politics: they were paid to immigrate, it is legally required to hire them, and many live directly on the voter’s dole (welfare).

    That puts the West in a serious bind. The West has no more cities; they have all become non-Western, if only through immigration. The West has been organized around cities since the Greek Polis, which was ancestral to the West. In effect, we’re back in very early medieval times, when the cities were gone (as disease ridden ruins) and invading barbarians ruled, _but_, unlike the Western Roman Empire, we still have large scale manufacturing. I’d suggest that the next stage would be an end to centralized manufacturing (perhaps as the US stops policing the sea lanes and global trade ceases) and a considerable reduction in population, Western and global both.
    At the end of the process, no cities as we now know them.

    Getting back to the present, Trump has tried and apparently failed to stem the barbarian flow. Too bad, but there are bigger issues than Trump. Remember that the other side is trying to keep cities going. It is working against the tide, and eventually the tide will win.

    @Counterinsurgency – IMO the solution is a much simpler one. America is captured by a privately owned fiat debt note money system. That system has stolen more than 95% of the purchasing power of the currency over the last century. No matter how vigorous and creative a people are, those are leg irons that are impossible to overcome over the long term. – – Such a system requires that the un-Constitutional fake ‘debt’ be constantly rolled over and expanded to keep the Ponzi scam going.
    They have used various means to do this. Massive government spending, especially on wars & the tools of war are one example. Encouraging wives to work outside the home & provide two family paychecks is another way to hide the theft of purchasing power. And IMO that’s what off-shoring industry overseas and allowing the wave of illegals into the country is all about. They are ways to hide the long term destruction of purchasing power inherent in the fiat counterfeiting Ponzi.

    No American president has challenged this horror, for over a century. (Andrew Jackson was very aware of its central importance, however.) Ron Paul tread lightly around it by calling for an audit. – – Unless the American people are freed from this fake ‘debt’ system, they will never truly be free.

    Without inside help, it’s hard to see anyway for us to defeat the forces arrayed against us.

    We could never have defeated the USSR, either. They had their problems, but when it came to nuclear firepower they could have destroyed the US pretty much any time. USSR’s equipment was simple and its logistics was good; their equipment would have worked as designed.

    We didn’t defeat the USSR. It defeated itself, poisoning its own land with industrial waste, always preparing for a war that never came, always living in a wartime economy.

    I’ve mentioned in this thread that the present US / Western failure is caused by diversion of capital stream to maintenance of economically valueless cities that have only political importance. Any economically productive activity remaining in cities could be transferred to the US countryside as easily as US industry was transferred to Asia. This has been true since the Interstates were built and was reinforce when containerization replaced dockside warehouses with container farms and digital telecommunications became very high bandwidth.

    For example, the shutdown of the US space program to divert money to Blacks did not divert the money to Blacks. It diverted money to cities, which had lost their job base, their economic importance. Because they are unproductive, cities cannot hold population — no jobs, just minimal welfare. That’s why the cities are dependent on immigration (and are willing to defy the Federal Government to protect the foreigners living in cities) because _without immigration nobody would live there_. No jobs, no small business, no nothing . An economic desert. Immigrants who can live in an industrial society leave the city, those who can’t remain (and complain), and fresh suckers (ah, immigrants) have to be recruited.

    Implication: When political power can no longer produce the income needed to support the cities, the importance of the cities will end. Illinois and New York are on the edge of that now. Something as simple as a Democratic takeover that ends the Trump boom could tip things.

    At that point the rural areas could hold a Constitutional Convention if they want, and try to salvage something from the wreckage.

    So – nil desperandum. The other guy always looks seven feet tall, but isn’t.

    Considering that Pelosi has suddenly dropped the effort to impeach Trump, I suspect a deal behind the scenes took place. Trump has to have some vulnerability somewhere to have agreed to this. There are rumors Mueller is gunning for his kids. It’s also entirely possible that Trump is just playing along until Mueller has wound things up and is out of the way, and then Trump is suddenly going to go anti-immigration again. I can see him doing it.

    But the opposition Trump has been getting is nothing like I’ve ever seen before in American politics. He’s had a very hard job getting things done while in the middle of witch hunt that’s been going on solid for his entire term. The psychological pressure must be crazy. Frankly, Trump needs to start pressuring right back by attacking Democratic party corruption en masse and making the left play defense.

    Right, that’s Trump’s only winning move, and has been from the start.

    Trump’s only real asset is his supporters. That’s it. If Trump loses them, he has nothing that could prevail against the Federal Government.

    If Trump attempts to make a deal with his opposition that includes replacement level immigration (or perhaps any immigration), he will lose his supporters. Trump will then find himself in the same position as Pinochet or the South Africans: sign a deal, and later find that the other side is not agreement capable, and that that carrying out the deal has destroyed the assets that might have kept him free [1].
    The Left is not agreement capable because it is not centrally organized and strongly believe that reality is a social construct that the Left can re-construct at its whim [2]. Further, the Left is composed of independent groups that are in constant competition. Should Trump leaves office without decisively defeating the Left, some Left group or coalition is later going to compete by offering up Trump’s destruction as proof that they are more militant than their competitors [3].

    The question is whether Trump can decisively defeat the Left. If he does so, his supporters and successor will protect him after he leaves office. If not, not.

    None of the above will keep the cities going for much longer, and that’s the key historical event here.

    Now, I think one is correct to hold him accountable for his choices. But Given the magnitude one does not have to be an idiot to get sidetracked. Especially if you not in the loop. A loop he probably should have bypassed. Now what may anger you, others and myself included is that he simply dismissed sound advice —

And this president is situational, he doesn’t like to commit not because he’s some manner psychological guru, but because he always wants room to manuever.

    I am more concerned with this business of economic goodies for children being cooked up by his daughter. Not that they are noble, I just don’t buy their efficacy, but liberals will.

You can’t just cuck on your signature issue like that. I’m still grateful to Trump for running and winning and putting up the fight he did, and I will always look back to 2016 with fondness. But he was ultimately no match for the Swamp. He’s been undermined at every turn by the left, the media, the bureaucracy, the courts. He’s had zero support from his own worthless party except on bloody tax cuts (of course). He seemed to feed on the opposition as a candidate where it was just about public sentiment. But with governing, it’s been trivially easy for the liberals and cucks to stymie him, and I think this has worn him down.

    A benefit of all this is that it has exposed the GOP for what it is: controlled opposition designed to distract white men with gay colorblind pseudo-libertarianism. Had they not exposed themselves I might have wasted several more years falling for their lies.

    P.S. Isn’t the Syria withdrawal still sort of happening? I guess that’s something. But given Trump’s incessant declarations of devotion to Israel, I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Nope. He caved on that one too.

    Well, you have a good point about Federal Reserve system being (at best) grossly abused. The net effect seems to have been to transfer purchasing power to the Federal Government. This essentially replaced the middle class (people who had enough money to buy capital equipment and earn a living by using it, such as small grocers or local machine shops, farmers who owned their farms, local newspaper owners, etc.) with middle income (employees of a business that they, personally, did not own). That was not good, as it left the US with decrepit corporations (US Steel, GE, for two examples) that couldn’t see past their own internal culture and became huge resource wasters. The Federal Reserve has effectively set the interest rate available to individuals below the inflation rate, making savings for retirement a rather foolish investment.

    However, I don’t think the Federal Reserve alone is responsible for the decline of the West. The Federal Reserve was just part of a Federal power grab by the cities back in the waning days of the Anglo Saxon Protestant establishment, when it was being conned out of its eyeteeth by the pretense that tight control by large organizations (a la Pres Wilson) was the only way that modern society could be organized. If successful, the Federal Reserve would have regulated the currency supply so as to avoid the deflation of the late 1800s, accomplishing the inflation that Bryan had called for but mixing it with deflation should that become necessary. In practice, control of the currency was used by various political loons (to be nice about it) to impose covert taxes by being first to spend the new currency. That’s bad, but inevitable given the shift of power from a vanishing middle class to a much more powerful (and hubristic) Federal Government.

    In comparison, the loss of manufacturing by cities had a much larger effect. It is comparable to the USSR’s manufacturing economy.

    The USSR’s economy essentially took valuable natural resources and converted them into useless goods. It was maintained for a political reason: it gave the Soviet government a controlled class of workers who had little alternative to supporting the Soviet government. The Post-WW II USSR government was very strongly unwilling to revert to Stalin era terror, and thus unable to convert from a wartime economy to a civil economy, and (as time went by) unable to prevent massive theft and misallocation of capital flow within Soviet industry. Eventually, the workers found themselves being paid with a small number of almost worthless goods, and refused to work (“They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work”).
    In effect, the USSR was supporting a part of its economy that had no economic value. The manufacturing sector produced almost nothing (maybe less than nothing if you count the land and air it poisoned), but its members were still housed, fed, closed, educated, entertained, given medical care, etc., however inadequately). This caused the USSR’s fall.

    The US economy, when it moved light manufacturing from cities to countryside, would have downsized the cities — moved the city workforce from city to new worksite. That did not happen. The US recruited new workers in the countryside _while (for political reasons) maintaining the population of the cities_. This produced an economic effect much like the USSR’s, as described above. The US decision to maintain the cities implied the support of a huge unproductive population and its infrastructure. The transition occurred during the late 1960s (I was there in NYC and I saw it), and capital dried up shortly thereafter. You may recall that the Apollo program was defunded because capital was diverted to “spending here on Earth” (idiotic slogan) on what amounted to subsidies to the welfare populations of the larger cities.
    Roughly the same phenomenon happened to the entire European diaspora. The London docks were abandoned at about the same time as the NYC docks.

    The decision to retain the cities is also responsible for the current political situation in the US (and the West generally). It would be futile to import foreigners capable of functioning in a European derived industrial society. Such foreigners would not remain in a city that had no industry, hence no jobs for them. It would be like pouring water into a sieve. Hence, foreigners who could not function in a European derived industrial economy were imported. Eventually, there have been so many of these foreigners that they are demanding the end of European industrial civilization and its replacement with something they can live in. The slogans are “Change America” and “End White Privilege”.

    This explanation has the advantage of fitting obvious facts, fitting (although from a different point of view) the existing political discourse, and of being very similar to the cause of the USSR’s fall: support of an economically unproductive and very large population that turns valuable resources into, well, human waste.

    One can only speculate about how the above Western situation might resolve itself.

    It is necessary to remember that every society on Earth is still aggrieved about the Western Expansion (ca AD 1500 – AD 1914) and intends to reverse it and, if possible, claim territory that the West is unwilling to contest (Germany, for example) for its own citizens. The Islamic Umma, for example, hopes to claim Western Europe, China hopes to claim Africa and various NW Asian republics, the Bantu Expansion has already claimed Rhodesia and S. Africa, and so on. These attempts might all or almost all succeed, in the same way that foreign interests were able to take Russia’s Eastern European buffer zone and gain effective control of Russian’s Siberian natural resources.
    Alternately, the West may reform itself internally. The West has changed its basic structure every 70 – 80 years for quite some time (arguably for the past millennium at least), and may do so again. If ti does, the critical event will be the end of the city based political order, and its replacement with something more distributed and linked to economic function. Note that the result of every last Western reorganization thus far would have been both repugnant and inconceivable to the inhabitants of the West who lived right before the reorganization, and this next one will be no exception to the rule.

    Kentucky fried chicken.

    Not quite sure how to interpret that. If you mean the West is as deep fried as KFC, then pretty much. It always looks that way before, or at least during, a reorganization.
    To quote a Goldman (aka ‘Spengler’), “It’s not the end of the world, just the end of you”. And me too, most likely.

    Remember, though, that when something dies, quite often something else is born. Example: Right now, weakening government has failed to stop private development of space industrialization. Given a few more years, that is apt to survive the reorganization (really promising engineering methods usually have), and mark access to an entire new class of resources and possibly living space. Same thing with the microelectronics that are being so unimaginatively used by Facebook and the manufacturing industry: new capabilities, never seen before in human history.

    It’s not like we were all going to live forever in any case. You take what you can get.

  140. What I was pointing our that ideas come from people.
    Of course Wiener shnitzel was ages before KFC.
    But here we had a Colonel Sanders Who used chicken and added mixture of spices into the crust .
    Than he had a little restaurant where he tested his mixtures on people. until he did find a mixture that had a best taste for the people.
    And than there was a investment type of person Who did see the potential. This investor put together group on investors who made a contract with Colonel. Naturally there were risk investments like promotion and buildings but in the end it did work out. And now we have a franchises not only in US but all over the world. This is how Capitalism works, and it is a really good thing.
    This is was not and is not happening in Socialist system.
    …………………………….
    The problem of Capitalistic system is that by this natural process the investment class eventually becomes too powerful and overrules (by many means but mostly by bribery) the government.
    US is Dying.
    The reason for it is simply that US government did allow outflow of investment by investment class outside the US borders.(mainly far east.) By this simple fact US even with maximum effort cannot have ever balance budget.

    So you apparently want to see a Democrat back in the WH and then to deal the US the final death knell.

    Look anything is better than a lunatic Democrat in the WH, period.

    the central banking mafia have a parasitic business model which requires the corruption of the political-media class to survive.

    the corruption of the political-class then leads to the death of civilizations through 1001 separate pathways.

    Just remember, the one with the most guns, wins.

    Few can use even five guns at once, and those are all men.

    If you’re serious about this stuff, set up a neighborhood watch. You get goodies from local law enforcement and get used to working with your neighbors and the local communications net. It is immediately productive, and would become much more so should something untoward occur.

    Right, that’s Trump’s only winning move, and has been from the start.

    And it looks like Trump is starting to make that winning move.

    Don’t batten down the hatches just yet, but you might try a few drills on hatch battening just in case.
