If pain is seeing pleasure through another man’s eyes, then liberals must be writhing right now.
After signing executive orders authorizing a beautiful wall, and an even more lovely stripping of federal grants from sanctuary cities, Trump Maximus then mandated weekly publication of crimes committed by illegals in sanctuary cities in a third order.
And now yesterday the great pen of Mjölnir fell again upon the heads of foreign squatters and colonists. Trump suspended entry of all euphemistic “refugees” to the United States for 120 days, barred Syrian refugees indefinitely, and blocked entry into the United States for 90 days for migrants from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
I’ve been quite disappointed to not see Obama’s “dream” decree littering the White House floor in shreds, though these are still bold and impressive moves for a President a week into his administration. I imagine Jeb Bush would have barely gotten around to issuing his first formal statement of solidarity with Israel at this point. Let us hope these bans are as fleeting as Nixon’s temporary move from the gold standard.
Though there’s more churning than just Sudanese at JFK. Politics are undoubtedly shifting quickly. At this pace, neoconservatism is going to be buried deeper than Bill Buckley by the Ides of March. Cucks beware. There is simply no viable alternative to a man who actually advances his constituents’ interests, rather than attacking them. And not being invaded has been in every man’s interest since first having the issue explained by the point of a spear.
Of course working in the interests of Americans means you are not necessarily working in the interests of Mexicans. And that has generated significant fear and rage in the area of northern Mexico once called Southern California. Much of which was focused on Trump’s outrageous prioritization of his own country. Others lamented the fact that The Wall would simply result in more deaths by those determined to scale it. That this preternatural commitment to live in someone else’s home against their wishes is what ultimately incentivized the barrier in the first place was little contemplated by the illegal alien being interviewed.
Though Trump seems strangely unmoved by caterwauling beyond our borders. At yesterday’s signing ceremony the President continued a pattern of indelicately candid pronouncements by remarking on the slightly moderated migrant flood: We don’t want them here.
No, we don’t want them here. We’ve never wanted them here. But no one was asking. Perhaps finally we’ve elected someone who does ask what the people who actually built and pay for the place have to say. If so, we have a naaasty President indeed. Godspeed to him.
