Trump Announces The Government Will Begin Withholding Federal Funds From Sanctuary Cities and States; ICE Teams Up With the Border Patrol to "Flood the Streets" of Sanctuary Cities and Arrest as Many Illegals as Possible

Would any other Republican have done this?

Answer: No, of course not. And this is why they oppose Trump.

Although they talk about "principles" and "virtue" and "civility" and even "Christianity," all of these are smokescreens -- they use these words to attract conservatives to their cause, because they know they can't expect conservatives to join their actual cause, if they admit it.

Their cause is open borders. Always has been.

When they say Trump is degrading our democracy, they mean: Trump is thwarting our schemes for a de facto imposition of open borders.

When they talk about their principles, they mean: Trump is short-circuiting our plan to never permit the public to weigh in on our de facto open borders plan.

They they talk about racism and xenophobia, they mean: Borders are racist and xenophobic and so are you, bumpkin racist. That's why we have to covertly guide your opinions and limit the options you will be permitted to vote for in elections. We're doing it for your own bumpkin-racist good.

They talk and talk and talk about a lot of different things instead of the one thing actually animating them.

Because they're liars and always have been. And their schemes have never involved honestly advocating their agenda to the public -- they can't trust the Plebes to recognize how smart and wonderful their plans are -- but always instead claiming to be vaguely in favor of ineffectual-by-design border security efforts ("virtual fences," as Rudy Giuliani began misleading in 2008, for example, which is a euphemism for "no fences") instead of just stopping illegals at the border and kicking them out when they're found to have broken the law.

They continue taking money from Pierre Omidyar to find exciting new ways to Con the Rubes, and convince them that this has nothing to do with open borders -- it's just that you're a racist if you don't support de facto open borders, with minimal-to-non-existent border enforcement and no deportations for any illegals.

And amnesty! Lots and lots of amnesty.

They can't say this, so instead, it's nonstop "principles" and "tweets" and "Christian values" and every euphemism and evasion and elision their crafty little liar brains can confabulate.

The New York Post:

President Trump on Thursday said the government will begin holding back funds for sanctuary cities -- like New York -- following a federal appeals court decision last month.

"As per recent Federal Court ruling, the Federal Government will be withholding funds from Sanctuary Cities," Trump tweeted. "They should change their status and go non-Sanctuary. Do not protect criminals!"

The US Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled on Feb. 26 that the government can withhold millions in dollars in law enforcement grants to cities and states that do not give US Immigration and Customs Enforcement access to jails and alert the agency when an illegal immigrant is being released.

The decision overturned a lower court ruling ordering the administration to release the funds.


The Hill:


Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has begun 24-hour daily surveillance operations near the homes and workplaces of undocumented immigrants in sanctuary cities across the country, according to an exclusive New York Times report.


...

A senior official with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told reporters in February that ICE would be deploying Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers to "enhance integrity of the immigration system, protect public safety, and strengthen our national security."

...

In the same email, the agents were ordered to "flood the streets" and arrest as many undocumented immigrants as possible.

The candidate all the NeverTrumpers are claiming is a "moderate" that we must all get behind -- for reasons of "principles" and "Christian virtue" and so on -- just called for a deportation moratorium.

And has denounced all of his previous support for deportatation.

And they, of course, support Joe Biden in this.

But oh -- this isn't about open borders at all! It's all just a coincidence.


Al three stories via Tim Pool.

Flashback: This old racist crook and liar always wanted to "complete the dang fence" when he was running for office -- also known as Conning the Rubes.

Then, once he was given a six year term, he'd suddenly rediscover that fences are racist and illegal alien criminals commit crimes as an Act of Love.

Hit Chicago with that good and hard. Local media conveniently doesn't mention that he's an illegal.


In a heinous act, illegal 'immigrant' Christopher Puente, 34, of Chicago,
was arrested after assaulting a 3-year-old girl in a McDonald's
bathroom. And incredibly, the Chicago police and mayor defended the
protections in place that allowed the previously deported, serial
criminal access to his latest victim.


Officials stated on Friday that they stand by their decision not to
cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents after the
child was sexually assaulted in the former Rock N Roll McDonald's on
Clark Street earlier this month.

"The Chicago Police Department remains committed to protecting all
Chicago residents regardless of their immigration status," Chicago
police said in a statement. "Our pledge to restrict ICE access to our
information systems and our refusal to cooperate with ICE immigration enforcement measures has not changed."



Any pig on the CPD who won't work with ICE and Mayor Dykefoot should be arrested.

81 49 artisanal 'ette,

It makes a grim logic and one that has been used for millennia to control restive locals. The elites basically bring in outsiders to control the local population. Note this was one of the complaints about King John was that he brought in foreign office holders because they were reliant on him for their power and protection. In return, they did his dirty work that locals would not do in repressing the population.

The managerial and professional class/economic elites, by and large, loathe all common citizens in their nations which is why they are trying so hard to destroy them. They view that as a benefit and a way to crush their erstwhile equals into the ground.

Notice Tom Friedman talking wistfully about Chinese authoritarianism for example. Bloomberg has done similar things.

85 ICE/CBP don't have even a fraction of the resources to conduct what many think this sounds like - a general round-up. And quite reasonably, they'll focus on known dangerous and criminal illegals. They barely have resources even for *that*.

Some hints it might be in the offing, but big-leverage kill-the-chicken-to-scare-the-monkey things like the MS food processing factory operation a few months back are really where the big impact on *employed* illegals would come. Been hoping for them for 3 years, so far mostly in vain.

Had I been old enough and mature enough to see the "kiss the boo-boos" scene at the time of release, I would have thought, "That Jake La Motta is legalistically trying to get out of adultery and statutory rape by having an underage girl (Vickie) kiss his nearly naked body and then pour ice water on his own private parts so he doesn't get 'release'.

98 artisanal 'ette,

It makes a grim logic and one that has been used for millennia to control restive locals. The elites basically bring in outsiders to control the local population. Note this was one of the complaints about King John was that he brought in foreign office holders because they were reliant on him for their power and protection. In return, they did his dirty work that locals would not do in repressing the population.

Posted by: whig at March 05, 2020 05:14 PM (EUDB2)

Foreign office holders would make sense. Foreign mercs to protect them would make sense, although in the decline of Rome and the West it happened that bands would look around and take over management themselves at some point.

Importing a new underclass that has no learned reason to respect the undefended rich guy across town? That's stupid.

127 ace I take it you're not really limiting your fire here to un-influential "influencers" and pundits and other nobodies like those funded by Omidyar? The opposition to rule of law in immigration, and a normal secure border, far more importantly includes most of the currently elected GOP.

There's a reason that Trump has received almost zero funding, and zero surrogate political support, from almost anyone in Congress, and never from leadership (first 2 years, or now). And that's key.

GOP voters in AZ refused to police the idiot McCain's behavior, and they're refusing to police that of many current incumbents.

Seems most voters are too unfamiliar with how things work, or too lazy, or too misinformed, to expect any - any - actual action, or even politics, from their GOP people on immigration.

Recall all these huge votes on the Hill, forcing people to walk the plank of amnesty, border barrier, dealing with the body count and carnage of "sanctuary" lawlessness, etc.? No, you don't. Because there haven't been any.

And the WH has done bupkis to even hint at forcing this, and not aware of a single endorsement with any connection to this issue area (or, more importantly, a contingent or denied endorsement).

Once the middle classes are broke and poor because of depressed wages, they can offer no resistance to the new aristos, and the foreign multitudes are intended to eliminate your constitutional rights via the political and judicial systems by voting.

They are buying the immigrants' and the poor's votes with taxpayer money in essence to gain power to crush existing citizens.

Most countries allow you to enter without permission, unless you count showing a passport as permission. All of the countries within the Shengen Zone allow you to enter without any sort of permission once you're in one of them.

They don't let you stay without permission, or work, or vote, though.

Regarding Silent Cal, besides Amity Shlaes' bio, a couple of other books are worth mentioning:

Frederick Allen's Only Yesterday, which is a great, though dated (1931) view of the Twenties. Coolidge is a presence throughout, though Allen subscribed to the popular elitist view that he was a Vermont bumpkin who lucked into a good economy.

https://tinyurl.com/txfm7c9

And Bill Bryson's One Summer: America 1927, which is styled after Allen's book, but covers that one year when Lindbergh flew to Paris, the Yankees had their best season ever and Coolidge said that he did not choose to run in 1928.

192 They are using the Cloward Piven approach to bankrupt the state (more or less middle class taxpayers) by an inflationary spiral such as CA housing and taxes.

Once the middle classes are broke and poor because of depressed wages, they can offer no resistance to the new aristos, and the foreign multitudes are intended to eliminate your constitutional rights via the political and judicial systems by voting.

They are buying the immigrants' and the poor's votes with taxpayer money in essence to gain power to crush existing citizens.

Those dopes can hardly plan their next debate, much less that sort of thing. If you destroy the taxpayers money, then you can't bribe the poor, can you. If the new underclass isn't respectful of the laws, they come over your walls and burn your house down.

Like I said, short term thinking. They think they can change X, and the world will be as it is, plus X. But the world reacts and changes to everything, and it is impossible to see all the ways.

The old aristocrats in Rome at the end of the Republic tried to clamp down on the talented in their class and the underclass at the same time. Their schemes worked for a while, but eventually one of the upper class folk took over and killed a lot of them and reduced them to servility under the Emperors, and the intelligencia have been afraid to grumble about it for 2000 years since. Augustus is what happens when you muzzle and kill your Caesars and Pompeys.

203 182, One of the reasons for the declining birthrate in the first place is the heavy taxes plus the cost of housing in locations with good public schools (or paying private schools).

They know that importing others will not save Social Security as it is a canard--immigrants cost more in benefits than they pay unless you use something like the points system that screens out poor immigrants with few or little job skills.

Saving Social Security is merely moving up the retirement age, not from immigration. Medicare is the tougher nut and if people want it, taxes will have to be raised.

213 In a heinous act, illegal 'immigrant' Christopher Puente, 34, of Chicago, was arrested after assaulting a 3-year-old girl in a McDonald's bathroom. And incredibly, the Chicago police and mayor defended the
protections in place that allowed the previously deported, serial criminal access to his latest victim.

Officials stated on Friday that they stand by their decision not to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents after the child was sexually assaulted in the former Rock N Roll McDonald's on
Clark Street earlier this month.

"The Chicago Police Department remains committed to protecting all Chicago residents regardless of their immigration status," Chicago police said in a statement. "Our pledge to restrict ICE access to our information systems and our refusal to cooperate with ICE immigration enforcement measures has not changed."

217 Tom Servo, it's a long answer, but all elementary to those familiar with how politics works between the Hill and a WH on any big issues.

You politicize it. You raise the profile, you make it a factor in everything you do. Just revisit the first CR Trump signed - clearly angry, vowing never to do so again - to see how nothing was even tried WRT appropriations on this. Nothing. It wasn't even raised.

Any WH is involved in every step of the haggling over appropriations on key matters, directly and through proxies/allies in Congress. If a WH simply has no allies, then that becomes the central issue.

The WH embraced then abandoned RAISE (a very good serious reform of legal immigration). It has never raised any objection to the continuing erosion on legal immigration (H2B, H1B, OPT, etc), which the GOP has made sure is included in everything passed so far.

Trump's accomplishments have been entirely unilateral, on his own, and with only executive authority (which has also been incredibly diminished in unprecedented ways by lawless courts).

If it's all a pre-emptive surrender based on tactical assessments, it's a huge mistake. But the few on the Hill who are serious have so far been unable to get any sense from the WH of what the strategery might be, if there is one. And they've been looking for one for a while.

None of the fancy shmancy ideas of the 60's left have proved worth anything.

Abortion: Health hazard and decline of community

Gov't schools: ignorance and inability to reason making poor citizens.

Affirmative Action: poor performance by supposed certified and trained. Requiring more and more automation and importation of trained workers.

Feminism: Rise in children with mental problems due to being raised by strangers, two person incomes with the same standard of living that a one person income used to support, unsatisfied and frustrated women divorcing their husbands and finding out they've become poorer.

This was by far the biggest shit-show I've seen here. Shocking.

I call BS that the machine could tell that bleed-through dot that was 1/2" away from another fill-in spot didn't count. The paper ballot with the #2 pencil that didn't need a special machine to feed it into at the end of the process always worked.

I can see a bunch of people sitting around trying to figure if it was bleed through, or I really meant to vote for somebody, but missed the circle. Their answer of course will be to move into even more high tech measures, because the paper ballot method is obviously flawed.

They really just want to be able to have all the votes go into that magical realm where they can become anything they want, or not.

242 This was by far the biggest shit-show I've seen here. Shocking. Nobody knew how to work anything, and as I mentioned, the paper ballot I thought would be the safe route (opposed to the electronic voting) was probably spoiled since the sharpie they gave me bled through to the other side. I call BS that the machine could tell that bleed-through dot that was 1/2" away from another fill-in spot didn't count. The paper ballot with the #2 pencil that didn't need a special machine to feed it into at the end of the process always worked.

I can see a bunch of people sitting around trying to figure if it was bleed through, or I really meant to vote for somebody, but missed the circle. Their answer of course will be to move into even more high tech measures, because the paper ballot method is obviously flawed.

They really just want to be able to have all the votes go into that magical realm where they can become anything they want, or not.

249 SS can be saved by means testing and extending the income taxed. It's not a pleasing solution but it is one that will work.

Medicare needs limits on disability claims and payouts and investigating claims. There are orgs that do nothing but submit fraudulent claims and get away with them year after year.


Medicaid needs more fraud investigations and fewer incentives for states to keep clients on the rolls. Raise the requirements for eligibility (or lower them as the case may be)

All this stuff is doable and will not receive much civilian push back.

The people who complain about the cutbacks are the Gov't worker unions and their members and the assorted charities that rely on the money from these programs.

Also the voting power that the clients bring.

261 192 Oldcat,

You are merely seeing their politician puppets on display, not their staffers and political handlers who have the real power. That is probably why Trump is infuriating them so much as he is rejecting their uniparty global collective wisdom from the staffers and handlers.

The real rulers of this country are not politicians but the ruling class (see Burnham's managerial class) which are composed of the financial elite and the people that make the wheels go round in academia, courts, military, intelligence community, regulatory agencies, politics, non-profits, government, foundations, and corporations.

They are pretty smart and they have been collaborating out in the open for years about their plans to impose a global framework on the world. To do that, they have to reduce the national states through constructs such as the WTO, EU, NATO, etc. To do that is unpopular, so you use the rubric of human rights to make immigration from third world a right and at the same time open the nations up to free trade from those countries while allowing those countries to have barriers to imports.

It is not just the US but virtually every important country of the West except Japan and S. Korea.

That lets corporations benefit from cheap labor from outsourcing, use price discrimination between countries to maximize earnings, and figure out ways to exfiltrate wealth to places where discretion is high and bank secrecy great with low taxes.

Hit Chicago with that good and hard. Local media conveniently doesn't mention that he's an illegal.


In a heinous act, illegal 'immigrant' Christopher Puente, 34, of Chicago,
was arrested after assaulting a 3-year-old girl in a McDonald's
bathroom. And incredibly, the Chicago police and mayor defended the
protections in place that allowed the previously deported, serial
criminal access to his latest victim.



So, raping a 3 year old girl is not an absolute travesty in Chicago, so says the Mayor and the CPD spokesman, essentially.

These officials point out to us that there are conditions that make this somehow conditionally acceptable, because there is something worse. Namely, illegals who commit crimes should not be able to be apprehended by ICE.

Allowing the rape of 3 year old girls is just the price we must be willing to accept, according to them.

Because that is exactly what they are saying.

Trump will keep the civil war tamped down, but in 2025, all bets are off.

307 whig, those in charge are the voters who tolerate, cheerlead, ignore, or otherwise enable it all to continue.

What's the only step in the right direction for decades? A result of Trump's election. Which was an extraordinary revolt by voters, nothing more or less.

Note this CPD story. *This* is the level of degradation in the electorate. Think back not that long ago. Public policy - itself illegal - that led to an attack on a 3-yr old child would have been political plutonium 239.

Today? See the complete, contemptuous defiance and indifference of the Chicago authorities.

Voters control things, or they choose not to.

(for dead-enders, now revert to "but the votes are rigged! illegals on the voter rolls!" as next line of defense to avoid ever, ever holding the electorate accountable for what it tolerates)

That's common with virus epidemics. A virus that guides its victims to the Styx too fast tends not to spread. (Bacteria are a little different here because corpses can be a reservoir.)

It is typical of a virus that it develops into something that spreads more and kills less.

Italy is around 3.4%, Iran is much higher. Also, it's not the mortality rate that stands out, but the 20% rate that need hospitalization for severe and critical cases along with the R0 of 4. This puts a strain on resources, which are already near strained in our country. South Korea is experiencing a shortage of hospital beds as we speak. We aren't used to isolation and quarantine measures compared to Asian countries. (And I have my doubts if we are equipped for it as well).

365 272 Black Orchid,

My childhood was in the sixties and while you had the Cold War scares and Vietnam, it was a time that I could walk to school as a elementary student and not be at risk. My school was orderly and I got to watch us put a man on the moon in real time. At the time, it seemed that there was nothing that America could do. As a young adult, I was at Ronald Reagan's inauguration and got to see his speech in Congress after he was shot. His optimism and faith in America brought us out the pessimism and defeat of the Johnson-Nixon-Ford-Carter years. I saw the Berlin Wall topple on TV and served during the First Gulf War where Saddam got his butt kicked.

Then everything somehow went wrong when Clinton served as front person for some very ugly anti-americans to achieve power in the bureaucracy, judiciary, military, Congress, and academia.

Starting with Clinton, then GWB, then Obama, I saw the political system turn rancid with considering American interests and security last compared with the well being and financial interests of others.

Our society with the Techlords and Media has become scorpions in a bottle which entertain the elite. I despise them and their lust for money and power which I think are bringing us to the brink of horrors that the world has not seen since the French and Russian Revolutions.

Really only one guy is doing something about it and in his work ethic reminds me of James K. Polk who basically worked himself to death after one term in office. I pray for the big guy for his safety and health as he is the only elite openly on the average American's side. He and his family have paid a frightful price for simply doing what was right and the cowardice of almost all Republican politicians tells me what side they are on. It ain't yours and mine.

Heck, at least in my neck of NorCal, it's the opposite. They get all road raged at the slightest thing, and think nothing of racing each other at 100 in heavy traffic, down the shoulder, splitting lanes, whatever.

They also get all road rage when you stop them from running red lights, and will come after you. I'm just glad I've got a V8 and dashcam. Of course, they get even more upset when their '98 Honda Civic can't keep up.

I'd love to know just what the cost of replacing barriers, protection rails (they have them at crosswalk intersections here so you won't get squished by el pickup truck) and light posts. They're bent and broken constantly.

Hell, just today I saw somebody sideswiped my car - obviously a white truck or van - I think when I parked at Home Depot for 5 minutes. C'mon ICE!

374 >>One of his more effective moves is "Do an address|debate|Q&A|own hall|event|etc. in enemy territory." At first, I thought it was a stunt but it isn't - it's damn near SOP. And it's pretty effective. "Yes, you are my opponent. Yes, I will come to your town. Yes, I will talk to your people. Yes, your people will listen to me. No, your back yard is not the fortress you thought it was."

Most politicians think like, well, politicians. They take all of their guidance from political consultants and they are all running pretty much the same script.

Trump thinks like a businessman and he wants everyone to be a customer.

375 I was reading a long piece at Epoch Times yesterday about AZ, and a large Indian reservation there on the border with Mexico. About 40% of all the drugs coming in from Mexico are going thru this reservation, and a shit-ton of illegals as well.

Use FinCen to document the cartel payoffs to the tribal elders, and then bust them all for being accessories to smuggling (both drugs and people).

Let them argue that their "tribal sovereignty" means that they can commit Federal felonies with impunity.

I have a gut instinct that the fondness of the average voter for "undocumented probationary citizens", or whatever they're calling them now, is grossly overestimated on the part of the lefties. In particular, I don't think even the Latino community is particularly fond of them. Other minorities? Hah! You think blacks like illegal aliens? You don't know very many black people, then.

Nothing wrong with giving the data, telling the truth, advising people to practice social isolation when and where they can to prevent transmissions while reducing stress on medical workers and resources, and prep for a few months just in case. 20% hospitalization rate is very high. 10% would be high.

394 Actual libertarians would like to see the Federal government not get so much money and not give out so much money so the Federal government wouldn't even have this kind of purse-strings power.

Liberals want the government to have money and power and use it. Hey liberals: if the government has the power to do the things you want, it also has the power to do the things you don't want.

I consider myself an actual libertarian. But I'm a realist. Trump has these tools at his disposal and should use them; the liberals sure would use every lever of power if they could.

The liberals have a double standard: they will shriek if Trump uses the levers of power, yet they would do the same or worse in a hot second. But they don't care about double standards; they will cheerfully apply one set of rules for the people they like and a different set for anyone they don't like. They don't even think they are being intellectually dishonest; they just double-think themselves or they just don't think at all. So it never works to tell liberals "we should take power away from the government because it could be misused." They just figure the government should have all the power and their team should be running the government, and the end justifies the means so they can do anything to their political enemies. They need to lose all their power. Crush 'em, Trump.

Last election I voted against Hillary, not really for Trump. This election I'm voting for Trump.

416 My opinion about Covid-19?

The vaccine industry was lagging due to people not getting the shot because it's a crap shoot if you get the right one and usually you don't die from the flu.

So they decide to release a similar form into the wild just to stir up the market for vaccines and other health care which someone has to pay for. (Guess who)

It's been pointed out that it's very likely this came from labs in Wuhan where the rate and the death toll are the highest.

Plus this bug seems to like Asians more than Blacks or Whites.

And a closer look at past pandemics shows that over all this latest one is pretty tame it's just being hyped without any history to show it's not that big a deal.

Once again our corporate Media is screwing the country.

432 307 rhomboid,

People like voters are leaderless without a critical mass of activists. Ideally that is where the political system comes in. I have seen it myself in local fights regarding development, politics, the schools, etc. The problem is made worse by the media refusing to do its job at any level and they hide any negative information from voters about Team Blue.

However, the GOP has abandoned trying for any votes in "blue areas", in part because officeholders at the state level don't want them mobilized because they might vote only for one or two Republicans and a bunch of Dems.

Even if a Republican runs in such places, they more or less endorse what the Dems want only slightly less expensive or slightly more effective. Essentially, Republican uniparty simply leaves cities and urban areas to rot while doing their uniparty disfunctional activities in red areas.

This is not the fault of the voters so much as it is that GOPe is beholden to corporations and Dems are beholden to radical ideologues and wealthy leftist donors. Thus, behold the uniparty where every problem requires more spending and more government power. Republicans prefer to borrow and spend and Dems prefer to tax and spend but essentially they readily compromise with each other on such matters.

We have same. Long-term determination, it is 90% pleasant. It's a theme from Schubert's "The Trout," which if you know the song and what it's about, it's a little disturbing to be turned into a happy melody for the completion of a wash cycle. I try not to think too much about that.

It would also be nice to have options to just go with a normal "beep" or maybe have one or two other songs to choose from. My only reason there is because the washer and dryer both play the same song. It'd be nice to be able to chance the dryer to a different tune so you'd know which one was "singing" to you from the other room.

470 432 307 rhomboid,

People like voters are leaderless without a critical mass of activists. Ideally that is where the political system comes in. I have seen it myself in local fights regarding development, politics, the schools, etc. The problem is made worse by the media refusing to do its job at any level and they hide any negative information from voters about Team Blue.

However, the GOP has abandoned trying for any votes in "blue areas", in part because officeholders at the state level don't want them mobilized because they might vote only for one or two Republicans and a bunch of Dems.

Even if a Republican runs in such places, they more or less endorse what the Dems want only slightly less expensive or slightly more effective.


The local press in Blue states ignores the R candidates completely. Zero mentions of a contender, who has nearly no money for publicity anyway, and the result is the familiar name of the incumbent, usually Democrat, wins.

Now, if a Democrat is trying to take over an existing Repub sitting person, the paper or TV station brings up the upstart Democrat name, over and over and over and over again. And each time, the Repub is put in a negative light.


97% Democrat-leaning TV and newspaper organizations will get that result.

503 457, Rhomboid, yes I am sure that we agree on a lot of thing.

To assess the degree of voter complicity though is that most voters really want someone else to do the heavy lifting of figuring out what policies are good and bad. They have outcome preferences but no real sense of cause and effect. In essence, this makes them easy to manipulate if one managerial class is telling them what they want to hear--this one weird trick versus someone else telling them to eat their spinach, then they will adopt the one weird trick of eating ice cream instead of spinach to lose weight.

In the past with competing media at the local level, someone educated the voter in hard choices. Similarly, an educational system was set up more or less that emphasized facts and objectivity, not relativism and "subjective truths". A high level of literacy was achieved and elites in academia, military, politics, etc. largely identified with their country rather than foreigners.

None of that is true now. Competitive and informed media is a thing of the past. Our educational system is designed to perpetuate ignorance, hatred, and feelings. Our elites, by and large, despise the average citizen and view their wants as evil. And voters are left with elites that fundamentally agree, avoid any sort of accountability in the moral and legal sense, and an idiot box that spews propaganda.

Just like as Schickelgruber was going from victory to victory peaceably vis a vis the French and British before WWII, the English people were similarly prevented to hearing any real debate on whether capitulation time and again would prevent a second disastrous war. The British elites banded together and prevented that debate literally from taking place. Winston and his few followers were censored and more or less banned from the BBC by Reith. They did their best to deride and ridicule him from the left and right as a Victorian hack has-been warmonger.

At the hour of Britain's greatest peril, the public demanded that he be put in after Chamberlain botched the Poland issue.

France was not so lucky--Premier Blum was more or less sabotaged at every turn including some Frenchmen that would rather Schickelgruber win than the left in France.

To fairly assess blame to a voter, one must consider how much time are they to spend on political matters. How much will it matter, how much should the political parties encourage mass participation?

In reality, political mobilization is easy if the parties are willing to basically follow their public--if they lie to them and exclude them from real power, the public will quite rationally spend their time doing something else.

The guy (Hame? Hamer?) who nominated him didn't know Grant didn't have a middle name, and assumed (for some reason) it was Grant's mother's maiden name.

Grant's name was Hyman Ulysses Grant which meant they spray painted HUG on his foot locker at West Point.

He changed it to Ulysses Simpson Grant so that it would read USG.

Hamer was the Congressman's name. Hiram was his official first name, and while he did use as part of his decision process his lack of desire to get the nickname HUG at West Point with his real name, it was originally an outside error that sparked the name change from all I've read.

510 470, leftcoast dawg, that is why the revival in blue states is going to have to come from the bottom up. Get those alderman elected, county commissioners, in blue areas, etc. Essentially, that is what the Republican party had to do in the South during the 70's and 80's.

At the local level, ideology is harder use as a weapon if the voters know you as a person. Y'all at least have a starting point compared with the Solid South in the day.

Here is the thing, there really is not any refuge anymore by fleeing to a friendly jurisdiction. You basically have to stay and fight or surrender against overwhelming odds later.

Tim Pool had a story about how 2 Dem councilmen in PA switched to GOP just now. One congressman flipped on Impeachment.

511 ndeed he is the master.

I can't think any Republican ever who was so eager to take the fight to the enemy. Not even Reagan (Reagan was excellent with the Soviets, but not nearly aggressive enough with domestic enemies).

It's refreshing, after, what, 75 years of constant retreats in a losing war?

You underestimate what Reagan did to tax policy to end the stagflation of the 70s and unleash the 80s and even 90s.

Even the Dems couldn't screw with what he did much until Obama.

512 Grant was 5.8 in riding boots. No homo.

513 that campaign ad might be the greatest piece of clueless comedy ever created.

514 Perfect 10, ace.

McCain personified evil and makes me wish I believe in a literal Hell. Ignoramus and demonic trash Joe Biden personifies evil as well; is there any doubt why they were such friends?

I will crawl over glass to re-elect Trump and relegate this scum to the margins.

I dunno micro dick. It seems to me the glow in the darks may or may not have overthrown the Iranian government before they invaded our sovereign territory (embassy). Maybe, just maybe, our spooks fucked them before they fucked us.

But whatever, too many thoughts are hard for micro dicks.

517 And don't forget the also arrest all the Mayors and City Councils of all the Sanctuary Cities and maybe even the Police Chiefs for aiding and abetting
