The First Fight

Elections are reliable greenhouses of lugubriosity. Every four years the losing side laments civilization’s now-certain demise, and then gets up and goes to work like every other morning (or at least spends their EBT funds in a typical manner). Most things don’t markedly change, or do so gradually enough that whites hardly notice they’ve been dispossessed. There’s a natural rhythm to the waves in an election’s wake. Democrat victories are accompanied by practically no conciliatory gestures to the other half of the country. There is instead a consistent advance of the left’s agenda and increasing foreign infusions to their voter rolls. But liberals could honestly say the same about the results of a Republican win: consistent advance of the left’s agenda and increasing foreign infusions to their voter rolls. No one has a monopoly on the moral high ground.

So while all elections are critical to advancing liberalism and replacing the country’s founding stock, this one felt more urgent than any before. From my view, this is the first election where the faded sheen of principles and politics gave way to the bitter identity attacks that have always been veiled behind them. Liberals stopped hating conservatives and started hating whites.

This has, of course, always been their modern motivating impulse; though in 2016 it became overt. Liberals agreed, “We’re all Tim Wise now.” For their part, conservatives finally began to realize that tribal conflict doesn’t evaporate no matter how much you ignore it. It doesn’t matter if you don’t care about race, when those other races do.

And so despite the narcotic effects of bouncy-ball and Budweiser, even whites in higher latitudes began to sense the existential import of this election. It wasn’t about tax rates anymore. That’s why all of the gibbering over Trump’s temperament and lack of chivalry with the fairer sex came to nothing. National Review and the nevertrumps thought this was another game of bridge, while voters on both sides perceived it as war. And in the trenches no one gives a damn about niceties.

In a homogenous society, cultured and genteel candidates can debate abstractions and decimal points. In a diverse society, multiple nations within one country fight bitterly for control of the state. This fight rarely remains limited to rhetoric. Which is another way of saying the now nightly arc of Molotov cocktails toward a militarized police cordon is “our strength.”

If Trump doesn’t understand the underlying contours of this conflict, I’m hopeful his chief policy strategist Steve Bannon does. Given the hysterical flailing from the left at his appointment I like to think that faith isn’t overly optimistic. Trump needs both ears oriented far away from conciliatory cucktitude, and his mind kept firmly on strategic advancement. Does this strengthen my constituencies or weaken my opponents? should be the first question he asks himself before considering any issue.

One of the first of his many battles will be on the field of Sanctuary Cities. The left is already limbering its guns.

Defying Trump, Chicago will continue as immigrant sanctuary.

Actually “Trump” is not a law in the federal register. And that’s what Chicago is defying.

Joining other cities around the country, Chicago is pledging to remain a sanctuary city for undocumented immigrants, an act of defiance in the face of Donald Trump’s past promise to cut off those cities from federal funding.

In sanctuary cities, local law enforcement officials aren’t required to alert U.S. Immigration and Customs authorities about the immigration status of individuals with whom they come in contact.

On Monday, Chicago’s elected officials, including Mayor Rahm Emanuel, are expected to hold a news conference to formally discuss how the city will retain its sanctuary status. Aldermen are expected to call on Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner to pressure Trump to back off his vow to interfere with funding.

“Across the country and in Chicago and Illinois … young men and women [are] very distraught about this,” Chicago Alderman Danny Solis told POLITICO Illinois on Sunday.

Illinois Comptroller-elect Susana Mendoza, whose parents are Mexican immigrants, called on Rauner to take a stand on the issue.

“As a leader of this state, the governor, and everyone in a leadership position, should be saying it’s wrong,” Mendoza told POLITICO Illinois on Sunday. “I would expect that the governor would say, ‘that’s ridiculous.’ Besides moral bankruptcy, it’s bad fiscal policy for the city or any city.”

The move is largely motivated by elected officials who say they’ve heard from terrified residents, including so-called Dreamers (children whose parents entered the country illegally), who fear imminent deportation. On Sunday, Emanuel’s office released a statement directing those with questions or in need of legal resources to call 311.

“I want to assure all of our families that Chicago is and will remain a sanctuary city,” Emanuel said in a statement. “Chicago has been a city of immigrants since it was founded. We have always welcomed people of all faiths and backgrounds, and while the administration will change, our values and our commitment to inclusion will not.”

Since Tuesday’s election, other cities that have affirmed their commitment to remaining sanctuaries include New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Philadelphia and San Francisco.

So the point is if young men and women are very distraught then they are relieved of any compliance obligations to federal law. That’s one criterion. The other is if the law in question is “wrong,” “ridiculous,” or “bad fiscal policy” it may be ignored by the states without consequence so long as they are above the Mason-Dixon Line. So remember when starting your open organized crime syndicate: RICO laws are ridiculous!

One can imagine the bloodcurdling howls from leftist squatter advocates if majority white towns began to similarly name themselves “Freedom of Association Cities” where federal civil rights laws and related judicial fiats were openly dismissed (as bad fiscal policy). Though we don’t have to actually imagine this at all. Both presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy set a fairly resolute precedent in dispatching federal troops to enforce Washington’s requirements, without any apparent regard for how distraught it made the young men and women at the end of a bayonet.

There is a huge reservoir of heartland contempt for the festering metro catch-basins that have pompously flouted immigration law for years. If Trump can’t even drain these shallow cesspits, then I’m afraid the vast Washington swamp is well beyond his capacity.

Though liberals will rely as always on media organ optics for their squid ink. If Trump cuts off federal funding, then roving CNN cameras will capture the last rasping breaths of migrants falling like flies in the streets of Chicago. The fact that each was just shot by blacks will hardly be relevant to the narrative that TRUMP IS KILLING BROWN PEOPLE. Alternatively he could send in the troops, which would be literally Hitler unless they torched Knoxville on the way. The last option would be to pursue the issue in the courts, which has largely been the source of our country’s misery from the outset. And in the likely event a militant panel sided with their affiliates in the cities, he is then left hanging in the wind.

The law, his constituents, and past precedent are all on Trump’s side. The left has only racist. I think we’ll learn early in this administration how potent that weapon remains.

  2. Another way to starve the wildlife sanctuaries, is to reduce the census value of an illegal from 1.0 to 0.0, which is a full three-fifths less than we formerly gave our legally-registered farm equipment. Lacking even an ounce of headcount value – and thereby losing the corresponding Congressional seats, electoral votes, and various apportioned funds – no city or state will have any fiscal reason to hold onto them. Which is the only reason they’ve ever had.

    • Alex, that is great. I literally laughed out loud.

      Steve Bannon is, oddly enough, the only appointment he has made that I approve of, if for no other reason than he seems, to me at least, like a race realist. The alarming thing to me WRT trumps new admin is that the neocons seem to be slithering into his white house left and right. We just fucking voted to reject these people. If we wanted to be ruled by Israel-first neocons like john bolton, jeb! or rubio or one of those other puppets would have been the nominee. Come on, trump. Ditch these people. They will betray you every time the going gets tough, and they will make you a 1 term, failed president if you let them call the shots.

      I voted for trump for two reasons. Supreme court appointments, and because I don’t think making Syria salafist rather than alawite so the qataris can build their gas pipeline to Europe is a good reason to go to war with russia. As long as those two things happen, anything else is pretty much a bonus(I set my expectation bar low for a reason).

      Trump is missing a huge point though. All you have to do is cut off the freebies for these people, they will self deport. Thats it. They come here because they can enjoy a higher standard of living without working than they can achieve in their home countries by working a regular job. Make that statement not be true anymore, the problem will solve itself in short order, treasonous scum like rahm not withstanding.

  3. For more fun facts about presidents Scheissenhower and JFK, see the 9/25/2016 post at the ThoseWhoCanSee blog. (for some reason, wordpress won’t let me post the URL here)

  4. Somebody get this to Bannon.

    (“Trump needs both ears oriented far away from conciliatory cucktitude” – nice ear there at least (in addition to knowledge of roots and suffixes?) going with “cucktitude” rather than “cuckitude.”)

  5. “If Trump puts tariffs on their hulk dolls, China threatens to ‘limit the number of Chinese students studying in the US.'”

    Did China really threaten that?

    • Yes. Or more accurately, the author asserts they will threaten that.

      “China will take a tit-for-tat approach then. A batch of Boeing orders will be replaced by Airbus. US auto and iPhone sales in China will suffer a setback, and US soybean and maize imports will be halted. China can also limit the number of Chinese students studying in the US.”

      • you laugh like thats a stupid, meaningless threat, but there are plenty who take it very seriously, like every tech CEO and real estate agent in palo alto, CA

      • Go ahead and withhold your students, China. But don’t you DARE, I mean, don’t even THINK about pulling your espionage agents from our companies and government agencies. We. Will. Effing. Nuke you.

      • haha, yeah that would be uncalled for. And by the way, the proper term for Asian Americans is visa frog or coolie. We don’t say ‘espionage agent’ anymore. That’s pretty damn offensive.

    • Little Rock high school, 1957. This scene owing to the Supreme Court’s penumbra-mining of the day. And there’s lots more photos of loyal federal troops putting bayonets to the backs of white locals. No reason not to reprise the scene with Rahm and his aldermen.

      • Also no reason to think the same army/national guard wouldn’t do the same thing again. “just following orders…”

  6. I sincerely hope that it’s true that those in what was the Great White North have awakened to the fact that Goody Two-Shoes will be resented and mugged irrespective of his/her attitude toward the more self-and-self-only members of other tribes. The deracinated and devolved whites hanging around campuses are free to surrender their “white privilege”, but if they don’t take that all the way, white loyalists should strip them of it.

  7. Hi just want to show you two things 1: NRK ,taxfunded news/entertainment (a`la BBC) in Norway an article on Bannon (he is a Nazi!!), sources used in the piece; ADL.SPLC,New York Times and Haaretz ,https://www.nrk.no/urix/raser-mot-trumps-valg-av-radgiver-1.13227508

    And one of my favorite TV-shows in soon on the air again The Grand Tour (Clarckson,May,Hammond ex Top Gear).Here is a picture of the production staff,notice anything? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cw6yAeWWQAAPxhN.jpg:large

  8. The fed used the threat of funding cuts to force all states to adopt 21 as the legal drinking age, I would assume the same ploy could be used against sanctuary cities

  9. For Trump to eliminate sanctuary city status, power and leverage will be the keys to success. Now in this instance the Federal Government provided the state of Illinois 16+ billion dollars in 2015 amounting to 26% of total Illinois state revenue. That’s a huge number and the kind of leverage you can work with to beat anyone, even an anti-American democrat communist Jew mayor named Rahm Israel Emanuel aka “the godfather” whose father was a member of the Irgun.

    Following protocol Presidents should not lower themselves and deal directly with state mayors. Leave that messy job to the State Governor who in this instance is Republican Bruce Rauner. Trump can call Rauner make his intentions very firm and very clear; if Chicago does not consent to dropping sanctuary city status then financial penalties will have grave consequences on the city, the state and inevitable Mr. Rauner’s re-election.

    Better yet, I just learned today that Trump may tag Kris Kobach as his immigration point man. Kobach is tough and will mop the floor with anyone who stands in the way of Trump’s immigration goals. I went to Kobachs wikipedia page and found the following statement “If you really want to create a job tomorrow, you can remove an illegal alien today.”

    That’s a winning attitude I can embrace.
