“Welcome to America. You’re Going to Go to School, Get a Job, and Become Americans.”

Because, where there’s a George Will, there’s a way.

This is the ugly choice Will’s drivel leads us to — 1) open borders, where everyone in the world can move here, or 2) trial by ordeal, where we erect barriers to weed out the feeble and then welcome the survivors. I don’t think Will actually supports either of those options, but that’s where his silly thinking leads.

Why are we not to think that Will supports #1?  I mean, just about everyone inside the beltway does.  Remember, there are 5.7 billion people who live in countries which have an average GDP per capita less than that of Mexico.

Will just might be right, that they are going to come here, get a job, go to school and become “Americans,” i.e. ideological cultist abstraction- and proposition-obsessed squatters on a meaningless piece of real estate who all crowd into big box stores on a weekly basis.  Except he’s wrong about the job part; most of them will be slinging the EBT.





Good For Ed

Hot rumor going around the political circuit in and around the political types hanging around the Lincoln County Fair.  It’s being said so often and spread so far and wide that it has to be true.

Ed Martin, who I once said had “all the emotional stability of a Kardashian,” now runs the state Republican committee.  The hot rumor is that he’s steaming mad over the RINO establishment’s tactics in Mississippi a few weeks ago.

And he’s not just some nobody snarky blogger.  He runs a state Republican committee, in what is becoming a pretty reliable red state in most instances.  Him having this attitude is Fort Sumter.  And it was only three months between that and Manassas.

Hide the wife and kids and bar the door.  Because Grover Norquist is thinking again.

He thinks big cities can turn red if Republicans get in front of the Uber/Lyft issues on the side of the disruptive innovations.

Just like big cities turned red because Republicans got out in front of the charter school question in favor of them.

Really, though, if you want to turn big cities red, you’d swap out their current predominant demographics for white families, and make it easy and affordable for white people to start families.  But ole Grover’s wee little brain infected with the egalitarian-libertarian virus will reject that out of hand.





RINO Secret Sauce

They think they’ve found the magic formula.

What this officially means is that they’ve learned nothing from Cantor.  His defeat didn’t humble the RINOs, it only made them more angry and got them on the war path.

Though it’s probably better for us in the long run, because it only means the day of reckoning is now closer than it otherwise would have been.





Boner Passes the Hot Potato

CNS:

House Speaker John Boehner is asking President Obama to send the National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border, to relieve the U.S. Border Patrol as it deals with an unprecedented influx of children and families — tens of thousands since October, many from Central America.

“Our country is facing a national security and humanitarian crisis along our southern border,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) wrote to the president on Friday.

“The policies of your administration have directly resulted in the belief by these immigrants that once they reach U.S. soil, they will be able to stay here indefinitely.

Not so fast, Johnny.

I wonder why “these (invaders)” have the “belief…that once they reach (Amurrikan) soil, they will be able to stay here indefinitely.”  Could part of the reason be that open borders RINOs like John Boehner are trying to weasel their way into getting some sort of amnesty bill passed?  Could the “we’ll find a place for you” slash “we can’t deport millions of people” rhetoric from Rand Paul be fueling the Camp of the Saints?  Could rhetoric about the necessity of giving some sort of legal status to “kids” and “dreamers” from that political dead man walking, Eric Cantor, have encouraged the deluge?

Say it ain’t so!

Turns out Barack Obama isn’t the only one good at being able to avoid the blame for the negative consequences of his own actions.





And the Alternative Is?

Washington, D.C.

Let me translate this into English.

Obama is only a “failure” because he hasn’t invaded the world nor has he been able to convince House Republicans to bust the border wide open.

IOW, neo-con whining.

If this is the “alternative” to Obama, then Obama looks pretty good.

Inconvenient truth:  Obama doesn’t enforce immigration law, and he does want to invade the world, just not as much of the world as the neo-cons want.

Orange is a county where the white voters gave Barack Obama less than 20% of their votes.  It does not mean meant Romney carried the county, and a county not being orange on this map does not mean that Obama did carry it.

It’s amazing how two different people can see the same thing and come up with two different tellings of the tale or interpretations of the data.  You can read what Nate Cohn of the NYT thinks, and I doubt that he’s out of the NYT mainstream on that.

My interpretation is that the white people in these orange counties, and a lot of others that were close to being orange on this map, have done the heavy lifting for the Stupid Party election in and election out, and have almost been a Stonewall Jackson to preclude its extinction.  Yet those white voters have disappointingly little to show for it, one rare and fleeting exception was SCOTUS upholding MCRI earlier this week.

This map doesn’t prove Nate Cohn correct, it proves Hunter Wallace correct.
