Same As She Ever Was

Same As She Ever Was By  September 10, 2015

Immigration as a political issue has exploded like a gushing fuel tanker lit up by a flaming road flare.  The conflagration, which began when Donald Trump entered the presidential race on June 16, has badly burned the U.S. establishment whose members are still trying to extinguish it.

Intimidation tactics and boycotts not only went nowhere in forcing Trump to back down from his views, they ricocheted right back against his assailants.  Macy’s lost more customers than it gained and Fox News’ August 6 debate ambush of Trump ended up giving the network a black eye and Trump even more popular support.

While Adios America, released two weeks before Trump entered the presidential race, is centered around the same political issue that propelled Trump to the top of the polls, Ann Coulter is a decidedly different animal than the (until recently) pragmatic and bi-partisan Trump.

In addition to Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge, and Fox News, Coulter is another prominent leg of the Conservatism Incorporated media complex built in the 1990s that rose to national prominence opposing the Clinton administration.  Unlike Trump, she has a long track record as a doctrinaire cheerleader for the GOP establishment (e.g., If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans).

Ann pulls no punches in her indictment of America’s immigration policy:

  • About 52% of legal-immigrant households with children receive state assistance. Almost 60% of legal and illegal immigrants receive state assistance versus 39% of U.S.-born households (15).

It’s Time to Build a Welfare Wall

It’s Time to Build a Welfare Wall

I have no objections to anyone entering the United States from anywhere, whether for work or vacation (See: Libertarianism. Immigration and Gentrification). However, I do stop at the subsidization, in any fashion, for those who enter the U.S.

This brings me to the just released report by the Center for Immigration Studies. According to the report, more than half of the nation’s immigrants receive some kind of government welfare, a figure that’s far higher than the native-born population’s.

For certain, there will be objections to the  methodology used in the study, but such arguments are only debating at the edges of the problem. The real problem is ANY level of subsidization. It is bad enough that government welfare programs exist for natural born Americans, but subsidization of immigrants creates incentive for immigrants to come to the U.S. and live off the backs of current American taxpayers.

Weaponizing Migrants

Weaponizing Migrants By  August 26, 2015

Europeans ought to be demanding Uncle Sam’s head on a silver platter, and those of their own leaders on pikes.

Thanks to 25 years of lunatic U.S. foreign policy initiatives and relentless military aggressions, the steady drip of illegal immigration into Europe from Africa and the Middle East has become a crisis of refugees. Not only has the U.S. killed and maimed at least a million people and displaced millions more, it has destroyed the property – water, sanitation and transport systems – that support the networks of trade and commerce essential to the survival of developed human communities. The U.S. has  salted great swaths of the Middle East with the desiccated and irradiated debris of war. Disease and contagions lurk in shadows while the agents of violence march in the noonday sun.

Think about it. How many millions might truly have no place to go?

The worst consequence of the U.S.’s attempt to remodel the Middle East may prove to be having opened the gates to a mass migration the likes of which Europe hasn’t seen for centuries. If so, then Christian Europe will be swallowed up.

Europe’s decision to outsource its defense to the American occupiers after World War II freed up the financing for an increasingly prosperous Europe to build welfare states that in time grew so generous as to challenge the viability of the competing structures of Church and Family and led, higgledy-piggledy, to a demographic crisis. Fewer and fewer western European nations enjoy a replacement birth rate. It is not improbable that a migrant population of size composed largely of of young, unattached males could overwhelm Europe’s single rising population of white-haired burghers and villeins.

There is precedent for such an outcome.
