The media and politicians have called President Trump’s followers: “deplorables, irredeemables, Hilterites, Stalinists, KKK, scumbags, unbalanced, Islamophobes, racists, sexists, rioters, raging bigots, terrorists, flat-earthers, liars, crazies”. Chris Matthews called Trump supporters “dogs”.
Many want Trump impeached. For what? Making them foam at the mouth? Others want him killed. Odd, I don’t recall calls for the assassination of Obama.
It was the librarians-in-pussy-hats that made the women’s march after Trump’s inauguration so adorable.
Setting aside the govern from the street corner crowd, Conservatives sometimes seem more bothered by Trump’s raw uncouthness in service to a conservative agenda than they were by Obama’s sautéed orneriness in advancing progressive hope and change. Years of the Cairo Speech, the apology tours, the Iran deal, the Iraq pullout, Obamacare, record debt and low growth — editorialized by chronic attacks on Fox News, along with “you didn’t build that,” “punish our enemies,” and “I won” putdowns from Obama — never prompted calls for the 25th Amendment like those in some anti-Trump groups.
I think many of the left are well-meaning, but let emotion erode logic. Perhaps they should strive for clarity of thought in lieu of unfocused passion.
The Rule Of Law and Immigration
Federal law states that the president can by proclamation “suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.” Yet federal judges have ruled, twice, that President Trump cannot do what the law allows.
Some 500 “sanctuary” cities and counties have decided for political reasons that federal immigration law does not fully apply within their jurisdictions. They have done so with impunity, believing that illegal immigration is a winning political issue given changing demography. In a way, they have already legally seceded from the union/
The law states that foreign nationals cannot enter and permanently reside in the United States without going through a checkpoint and in most cases obtaining a legal visa or green card. But immigration law has been all but ignored. Or it was redefined as not committing additional crimes while otherwise violating immigration law. Then the law was effectively watered down further to allow entering and residing illegally if not committing “serious” crimes. Now, the adjective “serious” is being redefined as something that does not lead to too many deportations.
The logical end is no immigration law at all — and open borders.
Another Effect of Illegal Immigration Another incident of radical Islam in the UK this week. This will continue. It’s becoming more commonplace every year. Western countries opened their doors years ago to Muslims. Now we can see the results of allowing in those who seek to destroy us.
