|Trump Viewed from the Border: High-Rolling Vulgarity, La Familia… and Not Much in Between
Posted: 27 Feb 2016 11:08 AM PST
Why does the candidate who pledges most vocally to secure our border show no sign in his personal life of guarding our cultural borders?
Donald Trump surged into serious political contention when, and only when, he began to call for enforcement of our southern border in no uncertain—and highly un-PC—terms. Nothing else seems to have mattered after that. Coarse comments about women, grade-school caliber expletives launched at opponents, non-answers to critical policy questions couched in a “you’re going to love… it’ll be the best” formula,… past and almost-present snuggle-ups with the Clintons and other ultra-left politicos, repeated endorsements of nanny-state solutions like public health care and confiscation of guns… creepily libidinous praises of his daughter, flippantly arrogant boasts about being able to shoot people with impunity, scarcely veiled threats aimed at unfavorable journalists… nothing matters as long as Trump retains the perception of being rock-solid against amnesty. Even his incoherence on this one critical issue, a “touchback amnesty” that allows illegals to cut in the citizenship line after they have been expensively escorted back to Mexico, seems too abstruse to turn the rising tide.
Ann “I was Against Christie After I Was For Him” Coulter would wear a suicide vest for The Donald. Even my beloved Pat Buchanon seems tacitly on board. Matt Towery confided in a Townhall column this week that Trump is really quite civil off the stage (as if this would be somehow reassuring to those of us concerned about his judgment and reliability). Jack Kerwick posted later in the same space a ringing indictment of Ronald Reagan’s conservative credentials; and this, too, was apparently intended to prove that Trump isn’t half-bad. QED… kind of.
Trump is the face of some animus or other in our society: I’m not sure what it is, exactly, since I don’t understand what could make so many normally thoughtful people treat reason with aggressive, even threatening contempt. But if I had to hazard a guess, I would reference the polling in South Carolina that found over two thirds of Trump supporters concerned above all else about Syrian refugees. That figure appalled me. Maybe because I’m so close to retirement and just waiting for all my savings to turn into Weimar Deutschmarks, the Syrians don’t quite break my top three. I definitely share a concern about phony refugeeism, at some level—about young, able-bodied males pouring into the West from all over the Arab world by hundreds of thousands (the very highest estimates of ISIS’s numbers never venture above 80,000, and seldom above half that) carrying Sharia law in their hearts and smartphones in their pockets. Doesn’t add up. And then, if one cries foul, one’s protest is just another proof that we mainstream Americans are un-Christian, racist rednecks because we haven’t agreed to overlook every scrap of objective evidence. Yeah, that makes me mad, too.
But why do I resent the forcible annihilation of what little remains of Western culture through illegal immigration and fake refugeeism? Isn’t religion part of it? Who is closer to my views about decency and modesty: an ordinary Muslim who doesn’t want his daughter prissing around in a microscopic bikini during a keg party, or a cynical wastrel who made his millions (when not abusing eminent domain) by stirring strippers into casinos and who boasts in print about his adulterous affairs?
Isn’t gross ignorance of democratic institutions part of it? Who is a greater threat to those institutions: an Iranian or Mexican who enters our country with thirty years’ experience of paternalistic rule and corruption, or a cutthroat entrepreneur who has successfully manipulated elected officials for decades?
Isn’t the leeching off of my hard-earned income part of it? Who promises to add more to my tax burden in the future: an illegal immigrant whose kids get free education and who can have free care at a public ER, or a man-who-would-be-king with Obamamaniacal visions of utopia—only this time “it’ll be great; we’ll have all the right people”?
My wife and I were out of town for most of last weekend. When we returned, I was too braindead to finish any of the paperwork that awaited me, and so I accompanied her to the local Walmart. Late Sunday afternoon… and probably half of the people we passed were speaking Spanish. I felt as though I were in another country—and, increasingly, I am. Yeah, that makes me kind of mad.
But most of the people I saw were also man/woman couples, and many had brought their children. I doubt that they were sympathetic, as a group, with gay marriage or abortion or plowing up small farms to make vast shopping malls. I wish they understood the importance of the Second Amendment, and it vexes me that so many of them see yet more government as the solution to government abuses. But they’ve had no chance to learn better. Go to Amazon and search El Libro Negro del Comunismo—the Spanish title of one of the most damning chronicles of the communist nightmare to emerge from the last century. Hardback copies start at close to a hundred bucks, paperback at over a thousand! The explanation? Obviously, these and similar books have systematically been bought up or otherwise taken out of circulation in the Hispanic world. The detoxification of someone who has grown up in such a propagandistic pressure-cooker (like, say, Pope Francis) doesn’t happen over night.
If Donald Trump wins his party’s nomination and then the general election, he may just possibly belie his past and stand for decency, the rule of law, and limited government. My own estimate of the chances puts them at virtually nil, because history teaches that elected representatives grow more coarse, lawless, and overweening on the intoxicant of power, not less so. But perhaps Trump will prove to be the secular messiah (where have we heard that phrase over the last seven years?) that his supporters see in him. I was a Trump supporter myself… for about a month. Maybe all of my subsequent information will prove misleading. I certainly hope so.
If not… then I’ll say this. I would feel more comfortable with that Spanish-speaking crowd in Walmart than with a pack of my genetic brethren who applaud an unchivalrous lout, who shout down all opposition to him, and who swoon and squeal when he promises to fine-tune their lives for them. As I write these closing words, William Gheen’s heroic labor for the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is about to end for want of support; and Gheen recently disclosed that ALIPAC’s members favor Trump over Ted Cruz by almost two to one. This doesn’t surprise me any longer. After paying the organization what I could afford for years, I now find that many of its members are there to raise a ruckus but not to contribute a dime. What kind of personal profile does such behavior fit? Not that of people I would consider either good citizens or reliable friends.
Maybe the time for secession is closer than we think: maybe some of Mexico and some of the Southeast should form a new nation based on… the US Constitution. Maybe Donald Trump will provide the final impetus that gets us there. I would rather learn another language, personally, than have another egomaniacal despot at the helm whose decrees and whose boorishness bring our cultural and spiritual life even lower than it already is.
LET US BE INFORMED VOTERS!

Trump Pals Around with George Soros
By: Jen Kuznicki | February 28, 2016
Trump actually spent Christmas Eve with George Soros in 2009, according to the New York Post. But hey, billionaires gotta stick together, you know? Nevermind that Soros is for a One World Order, an anti-Zionist and an anti-constitutional funder of all things unholy.
The funder of all things unholy also funded the Trump Tower in Chicago. According to the Chicago Tribune:
Donald Trump has lined up three New York hedge funds, including money from billionaire George Soros, to invest $160 million in his Chicago skyscraper, a key piece in perhaps the largest construction financing in the city’s history, according to real estate sources and public documents.
Soros gave Donald Trump a mezzanine loan, which is basically a bailout, because Trump didn’t want to, or couldn’t, front his own money to build the Chicago Trump Tower. Mezzanine loans are loans offered with outrageous interest that help the developer on the front end of finance, and which often offer a stake in the building.
Trump was also named in a lawsuit along with Soros in New York surrounding the sale of the GM Building, so it’s not as if Trump only dealt with Soros in Chicago.
Many Trump supporters might think this is no big deal—that businessmen have to do business with people they may personally not like. However, in 2011, when considering a White House bid, Trump attended a Tea Party rally and told people to, “Leave George Soros alone, he has enough problems,” giving the distinct impression that Trump might just owe the global manipulator money. The magnitude of the George Soros identity is not known universally.
George Soros has a messianic complex, the likes of which he has said he needs to keep in check because otherwise he’d be in a loony bin.
Soros’ main cause is embodied in his Open Society Foundations, which he believes is an extension of his education that focused on Karl Popper’s philosophy. Popper taught at the London School of Economics when Soros attended, and Soros has stolen Popper’s vision and turned it inside out.
The Open Society and It’s Enemies is a book Popper wrote during WWII that denounced Marxism and glorified democracy. However, Soros has twisted Popper’s overall philosophical arguments against Marxism and for democracy into a destroy borders at all cost, totalitarian Marxist worldwide order, centered on zero borders so that a chosen few can rule the globe. Soros was widely speculated as the person who bet on America’s downgrade and partially caused our economy to tank in 2008. Soros’ Foundation and the vast network of hundreds of groups that he funds are all centered around mass migration, and he contributes to the same politicians that Donald Trump does. In fact, Trump has over the years contributed to Soros’ pet projects like dosomething.org, a website dedicated to youth political correctness.
The master of “dark money,” Soros funds the underbelly of Leftist chaos. Like Trump, he’s given to John McCain and the Clinton Foundation. Trump actually contributed a quarter of a million dollars to the Clintons, and though some might believe Trump was a hapless bystander in a swirl of political demands, understand that the entire Democratic Party, with all its constant demand for social change, held a place in Trump’s heart too, very recently.
Trump called for the impeachment of George W. Bush, taking the Leftist view of partisan destruction, saying that Bush lied about going to war. This argument was pushed non-stop on Media Matters and Move On and the Leftists seized the national narrative of “Bush lied, people died.” That libelous inflammatory rhetoric was a Soros special.
Soros once said that removing President George W. Bush from office in 2004 was the ‘central focus of my life.’ He put his money where his mouth is, giving $23.58 million to various 527 groups dedicated to defeating Bush.
Donald Trump has admitted to having a great relationship with Nancy Pelosi, putting his money where his mouth is and opening his moth-filled wallet. But it was a special and deliberate appeal for a cause. “I was surprised that she (Pelosi) didn’t do more in terms of Bush and going after Bush,” Trump said. “It was almost – it just seemed like she was going to really look to impeach Bush and get him out of office, which personally I think would have been a wonderful thing.”
Trump did not feel the same loathing for, nor did he take a political risk for the impeachment of, the most unconstitutional Leftist president this nation has ever seen, Barack Obama, telling the Putin apologist Alex Jones: “In a way you’ll make him a martyr. But I don’t even say that. I’m the most disappointed in Republicans.”
When you look at the people Donald Trump surrounds himself with, you couldn’t rightly say he’s aware of the types he gets into contracts and political causes with. However, his history shows either an ignorance or stamped approval of who these people are and what they wish to accomplish.
The tentacles of worldwide dominance includes Trump, while he gives money to the worst politicians, preaches deal-making as a beatitude, and gets along with the most ruthless destroyers of America.
