The percentages who approve and disapprove of "the travel ban between the U.S. and Europe", with residuals representing "not sure" responses:
Remittances from the United States to Mexico totaled nearly $32 billion last year. Exporting social problems in return for tens of billions of dollars and political influence in another country is an impressive bit of statesmanship. Too bad the US doesn't have someone able to artfully pull off a masterful kind of deal like the... Read More
Commentary coming from the outside is really bad. Punditry on the modern left has largely devolved into little more than histrionic virtue signalling and moral posturing. Though the relevant data is seconds away, 0.4 minutes for verification is too much to ask as the same nonsense shows up over and over in the mouths of... Read More
Agnostic: Perspicacity or delusion? The latter, I'll argue. Agnostic again: How long will restrictionists have to wait for Democrats to make even the most non-committal, mild gesture in the direction of immigration restriction? Rhetorical, of course. The only plausible answer is "indefinitely". There's no talk of it whatsoever among any Democrats, anywhere. The Bernie Sanders... Read More
Note to Republicans and the media: Do not ever use "undocumented migrant". It's a loaded left wing phrase. The proper phrase, according to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, is "illegal alien":
A DACAmnesty legalizes 800,000. Via chain migration, the number quintuples in a few years and the only sensible vote in 2020 becomes Adam Kokesh running on a platform of dissolving the United States into 51 independent, sovereign states because the last chance at something resembling a nation will be as dead as Trump's reelection campaign....

Paul Kersey nailed it:
Trump lost the outer Swamp* 31.8%-68.2 to Clinton (in a two-way race). Gillespie lost the outer Swamp by a nearly identical 31.9%-68.1% to Northam. The outer Swamp represents nearly one-third of the state's total electorate. Trump won the rest of the state by 6.6 points, 53.3%-46.7%. Gillespie won it by a narrower 2.4 points, 51.2%-48.8%....

The following graph shows the percentage of the American electorate that was foreign-born in each presidential election going back to 1992. Quantity has a quality of its own: In 2016, the Founders' Revenge took the form of the Electoral College:
Here's one to file neatly under the blog's tagline. The following graph shows the electoral behavior of foreign-born voters--mostly voting legally--in US presidential elections since 1992*:
The 2016 presidential election utterly destroyed the aura of augury he'd enjoyed since 2012, but Nate Silver is learning. Via Steve, one of Silver's recent posts is entitled "Trump's Hardline Immigration Stance Got Him To The White House". He's come along way from mocking Trump's campaign as a gag on account of it detailing a... Read More
A politically ambitious (or genuinely courageous representative of Heritage America) attaches a 'poison pill' amendment to the forthcoming DACA amnesty legislation Paul Ryan, his quisling band of cucks, and Democrats are currently working together to craft. This poison pill amendment expands amnesty to family members of "dreamers". It immediately bumps the estimated number of amnesty... Read More
Agnostic wonders if a DACA amnesty is suicide for Republicans... or if it is actually suicide for Democrats. He is one of the most original and perspicacious thinkers out there. It would be folly not to take him seriously here. That said, there are some questionable assumptions in the argument he makes: Of the 30... Read More
There was too much bear-baiting, muh freedom, and muh values, sure, but if those are the rhetorical compromises that must be made in return for the following, so be it. This excerpt is gold (just hit play, it's queued up): As Heartiste puts it: Throw those black pills away. The fight isn't over. It's only... Read More
While the US is not and has never been a "nation of immigrants", Israel was almost from the beginning. In the 1950s, around half--maybe more, it's tough to tell with certainty--of those living in the country were immigrants. Still today a larger share Israel's population is foreign-born than has ever been the case throughout the... Read More
Reuters-Ipsos ran a poll in December and January querying people on whether or not they thought "Syrian President Bashar al-Assad" poses a threat to the US. The results, for everyone, for Trump voters, and for Hillary voters (n = 3,246):  
A black robe from Brooklyn, on behalf of the ACLU, thwarts the electoral mandate given to the president by the American people in favor of Iraqi immigrants to whom the US constitution does not apply. America First meets ethnomasochistic leap-frogging loyalties, certainly not for the last time. While the dumb ones are calling him Hitler,... Read More
If you're unsure whether or not the Republican congressperson up for (re)election in November is sticking by Trump or stabbing him in the back in typical cuckservative fashion, ask (here and here). If (s)he is betraying Trump, pledge to vote for the Democrat and carry through on that pledge next month. Trump's candidacy is a... Read More
Trump's speech on the history of Clintonian corruption was postponed so he could deliver one in response to the mass shooting in Orlando where an inanimate carbon assault rifle killed fifty people. The topic was to be covered was billed as terrorism. Substantively, though, it was more a speech on immigration that also included terrorism... Read More
With the Republican primaries culminating in Trump going 13 for 13 in the thirteen colonies, the GOP nominee gave a speech demonstrating the perfect blend of the god-emperor and the presidential candidate.There's an elegance in being able to describe oneself as a "Trump Republican". For the good of the cause, clemency will be granted to... Read More
This came in response to Trump toying with the idea of US debt default a few weeks ago. My intention was to post it here in a timely manner but it got lost it the sauce for awhile. So in the famous words of Ringo Starr, forgive the lateness of my reply. --- Trump was... Read More
Nevada Republican caucus entrance poll results, by race:
On facebook and twitter Charles Murray has mounted a continual attack campaign against Donald Trump (and also on his presidential aspirations and its supporters--but, surprisingly, against Trump in an acerbically personal way more than anything else). From Trump's perspective, this is an ant-pissing-on-my-shoe scenario, of course. Another Establishment figure renouncing Trumpian populism is nothing new,... Read More
I associate the idea of being a citizen of the world with cosmopolitan SWPL types. It's not an inaccurate association when they are compared with badwhites, but it's a tendency more fully characteristic of the entire Fringe coalition than I would have guessed. In 2014, the GSS asked respondents if they "feel more like a... Read More
Citizens of the world like to point out, with heads shaking, the public's ignorance of what percentage of the federal budget goes to foreign aid. Kaiser found a mean estimate of 26%. The actual figure is about 1% (curiously, this reaction is not elicited when it comes to overestimates in the populations of blacks, Jews,... Read More
An appropriate enough sign of the times:At $4 million per mile, DHS could use that money to get one-fifth of the 28-mile stretch devoted to a 'virtual fence'--that has still not become a reality, virtual or otherwise--walled off. That is, really walled off, with concrete and trenches and stuff.
