Why The Swing To Socialism

IMMIGRATION, Multiculturalism, Political Philosophy, Politics, Republicans, Socialism

Mass immigration has forever changed the country.
Vox Day explains:

… there are now tens of millions of US citizens from nations with strong socialist traditions. For example, two of the three major Mexican parties are members of the Socialist International.

The second is that the media is dominated by individuals whose politics range the gamut from Marxian to Trotksyite.

Most important—and what Republican politics fail to address: There is no turning back.

UPDATED (4/8/019): Nielsen Tried To Stop The Invasion By Separating ‘Families.’ Then Ivanka Cried & Trump Crumbled.

Donald Trump, Family, Homeland Security, IMMIGRATION

I’ve followed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen closely. I disagree with those badmouthing her. They have historical Alzheimer’s. Nielsen is best known for separating “families” (a commendable thing when this is the only legal tool with which to stop an invasion of the country). She eloquently defended the separation of families. Nielsen, in fact, was fully committed to a zero-tolerance policy and the resultant family separations.

The policy called for all suspected border crossers — including parents and asylum seekers — to be prosecuted for illegal entry. As a result, thousands of children were separated from their parents, with children classified as “unaccompanied.“ …

Then, Ivanka and The Familia intervened.  Trump, whose  loyalties are with his daughter’s ambitions, crumbled.  And subsequently, the president solicited Nielsen’s help in “drafting an executive order barring family separations.” Again, Nielsen had been down with separating “families” to stop the invasion.

Now, Kirstjen Nielsen is being blamed for legislative inaction in the first 2 years of the presidency, when the Republicans controlled both houses and The Executive .

UPDATE (4/8/019):

Trump signed an executive order to END HIS OWN family-separation policy. Now he’s angry with Secretary Nielsen for being unable to reverse his OWN decision.

UPDATED (4/7/019): How To Lose To The Left On Immigration

Argument, Critique, Donald Trump, IMMIGRATION, Left-Liberalism

If Tucker Carlson’s producers were serious about immigration—they would not continue to give such a formidable platform to Enrique Acevedo. Enough with the Left’s facile case for eradicating America. By definition, that position lacks seriousness.

Patience with puerile nonsense is not a serious meta-perspective.

To answer the contention that TV hosts “have to show the opposing view”—Yes and no. There comes a time when you have to quit congratulating yourself sanctimoniously on your perfect impartiality. “Jolly good old chap. Don’t forget, when your ship is sinking, the band must play on. And the conductor must conduct.”

There comes a time to fight evil with the best of minds. Acevedo is nothing but a pretty face.

Puhleeze. Give me a break.

UPDATE (4/7/019): Blue Texas

Going, going, gone! Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo is a 28-year-old immigrant; a progressive, whose victory in November put her in charge of governing Texas’ most populous county.

CBS News:

Even with rising wages and falling mortgage rates, Americans can’t afford a home in more than 70 percent of the country. Out of 473 U.S. counties analyzed in a report, 335 listed median home prices more than what average wage earners could afford, according to a report from ATTOM Data Solutions. Among them are the counties that include Los Angeles and San Diego in California, as well as Miami-Dade County in Florida and Maricopa County in Arizona.

Naturally, realtors prefer a tight housing market driven, in part, by an unending influx of immigrants:

… swaths of America have seen local housing fundamentally altered by an influx of new immigrant groups—sometimes in surprising ways that fly in the face of prevailing narratives.

There are now about 42 million immigrants from just about every country in the world living in the U.S., making up about 13% of the overall population, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. They’re a wildly diverse group, but they’re bound by a common desire: to build a better life for themselves and their families.

“Immigrants are a big driving force for housing markets across the nation,” says Kusum Mundra, an economics professor at Rutgers University, Newark. “Most want the American dream, which is to own a home.”
