Now that the Trumpster has done an about face on the very issue that brought him to center stage from the outset of his presidential campaign, is it time to write him off as just another well-intentioned guy who got corrupted by the system — before he even got elected no less? Maybe … but before we do, let’s add a bit of perspective to the mix.
Honestly, now, did you ever seriously believe that Trump was going to round up and deport 11 million illegals? Hope? Sure. But belief? C’mon, get real.
The Dirty Dems have been working on their dishonest immigration vote-acquisition scheme for more than fifty years. When sleazy Ted Kennedy pushed through The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, he assured Americans that “In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think.”
He went on to say, “The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.” Like Obama with Obamacare, he assured Americans that the very things he knew — and wanted — to happen would never happen.
In finer circles it’s known as lying. Kennedy, like the Horrible Hillary of today, was a congenital liar, whether it involved immigration or plunging a beautiful young campaign worker (Mary Jo Kopechne) to her death and not reporting it to the police for ten hours. And also like Horrible, he got away with it because the Kennedys operated under their own set of rules.
As to Teddy’s assurances about his immigration bill, the truth is now out in the open for all to see. The United States places no limit on the number of family members of illegal aliens that can be admitted into the country. As a result, along with Obama’s Mideast immigration policy, the U.S. attracts 20 percent of all the world’s migrants even though it has only 5 percent of the world’s population.
So, no, even if Trump’s intentions were sincere, it simply wasn’t going to happen. The horse has been out of the barn for far too long. The Dirty Dems use the same strategy over and over again — and it works: Push through a bill or policy that is outrageous, even if the majority of the population is against it and even if it has to be done by subverting the Constitution, then fall back on the same old, tired mantra, “It’s way too late now to undo it.”
This is precisely how the radical left pushed Obamacare through, and how they’re keeping it in place even though it is destroying lives and businesses. It was never intended to be anything other than a first step toward single-payer healthcare and tighter control over the populace.
Which brings us to the question, should voters who were attracted to Donald Trump because of his adamant stance on sending illegals back to their home countries and building a very big wall now vote for the Face of Evil or, in the alternative, stay home on election day (which is tantamount to voting for HRC)? The answer, I believe, is a no brainer: No!
As I wrote forty years ago in Restoring the American Dream, the entire concept of government is, of and by itself, inherently evil, so it’s virtually impossible to get elected to high office if you make it a habit of telling the truth. I’m not implying that every politician is on a par with Horrible Hillary, but all of them do their share of lying and not keeping their promises (which is a close relative of lying).
So, even though the thought of voting for the lesser of two evils is distasteful, that’s what it almost always gets down to. (It goes without saying that, in the real world, voting for a third-party candidate is a complete waste of time and not worth discussing.)
You might believe that it would be nice if Trump deported all illegals and built the Great Wall of America, but if he didn’t do either of those things, he would still make a huge impact on slowing the suicidal path the U.S. is now on just by doing a handful of things (which I think he would do, to one extent or another). These include:
- Lift all restrictions on oil drilling, fracking, coal mining, and natural gas exploration.
- Dramatically cut the EPA’s number of employees and take a meat axe to its regulations.
- Lower taxes significantly on everyone.
- Prosecute all politicians who have broken the law, starting with the HillBillies.
- Outwardly support all local police forces and give them whatever equipment they need to safeguard the public, quell riots, and protect themselves.
- Make work a requirement for receiving any kind of welfare.
- Indefinitely stop the flow of Middle East refugees into the country. There is nothing in the Constitution that requires the United States to allow anyone to be here.
- Declare Sharia Law illegal, and deport all those who are caught promoting it.
- Give open and clear support to our best allies, starting with Israel, Jordan, Kurdistan, and, of course, the UK.
- Declare the agreement with Iran to be null and void, and impose harsher sanctions on the Mullahs than were previously in place.
- Give veterans the absolute best medical care available.
- Refuse to raise the debt ceiling ever again — for any reason.
- Appoint hard-core conservative judges to the Supreme Court.
- Expand and strengthen GITMO and start sending all the bad dudes there for intense interrogation.
And much, much more.
Sure, Trump would do a lot of things that I wouldn’t like, but he would not purposely try to destroy America like Obama has been doing, and he wouldn’t be plotting night and day to steal millions of dollars from U.S. taxpayers like the Clintons have done throughout their careers.
His egomaniacal ways might even be an asset to America, because his desire to be seen as a great leader is what makes him want to make America great again. On the other hand, giving Obama a third term through a criminally insane, congenital liar would put the finishing touches on America’s final chapter.
Bottom line: Whatever Trump’s faults may be — and they are many — he would not do to America anything close to what Bolshevik Barry and Hillary Rotten Clinton would do. I’m 100 percent against eminent domain, but it’s nothing compared to giving the Iranians billions of dollars to help them promote terrorism and build a nuclear bomb. As I said at the outset of this article, a bit perspective is in order.
To borrow the words of journalist-turned-radical-left-promoter Cokie Roberts, anyone who votes for Obama/Clinton is morally tainted.
