80% of Americans Want Secure Borders by The Elephant's Child

Roughly 80% of all voters say that the United States needs secure borders, including 68% of Democrats, in a poll conducted by Harvard University.

The findings reveal, for example, that eight out of 10 of all U.S. voters — 79 percent — say the U.S. needs secure borders; 93 percent of Republicans, 80 percent of independents and 68 percent of Democrats agree with that.

Another 79 percent of voters overall say immigration priorities should be granted on a person’s “ability to contribute to America”; 87 percent of Republicans, 79 percent of independents and 72 percent of Democrats agree.

Meanwhile, 68 percent overall oppose a lottery-based immigration system which is meant to ensure “greater diversity”: in the U.S.; 78 percent of Republicans, 65 percent of independents and 62 percent of Democrats agree.

In addition, 61 percent overall say U.S. border security is inadequate; 84 percent of Republicans, 64 percent of independents and 40 percent of Democrats agree.

According to the most recent analysis by  the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), one illegal immigrant living in America today costs U.S. citizen taxpayers about $8,075. In total illegal aliens cost American taxpayers $116 billion annually. This number is predictably disputed by the media and the Democrats, but even using conservative estimates compiled five years ago, Heritage found that illegal immigrant households imposed a net fiscal burden of around $54.5 billion a year (benefits received minus taxes paid). The funding Trump is requesting  is about 10% of the annual cost of the amount taxpayers pay to provide services for illegal immigrants.

Democrats and the media continually complain that “walls don’t work” but even the slightest investigation proves them wrong on that one. Walls work every time. Doesn’t mean they are perfect, but they work well enough to significantly reduce the illegal population.

One of the most obvious objections to the Democrat’s current protestations, is that not long ago, when they were in charge, they were claiming the exact opposite position. See here, and here, and here. The Democrats’ position is entirely based, not on principle, but on resistance to anything Trump. As they occasionally admit, they don’t have any principles, only the propaganda of the moment handed down from their propaganda shop. Schumer and Pelosi inadvertently proved that with identical twitter posts.



“The New World Order” Rears it’s Ugly Head Once More by The Elephant's Child

Germany’s Angela Merkel has finally clarified the argument of our day. She has proclaimed that “nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty.” She told an audience in Berlin that sovereign nation states must not listen to the will of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, or even sovereignty.

In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel joked, attempting to lighten the mood. But Merkel has always had a tin ear for comedy and she soon launched into a dark speech condemning those in her own party who think Germany should have listened to the will of its citizens and refused to sign the controversial UN migration pact:

There were [politicians] who believed that they could decide when these agreements are no longer valid because they are representing The People”.

[But] the people are individuals who are living in a country, they are not a group who define themselves as the [German] people,” she stressed.

She has apparently not noticed the reaction of the French people to President Emmanuel Macron’ Remembrance Day speech that “patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism [because] nationalism is treason.” That got the deeply unpopular Macron the whole of France broken out in riots by people in yellow jackets. Macron told the Bundestag that France and Germany should be at the center of the emerging New World Order.

What New World Order? A fairly short period when Germany has refrained from invading France? A European continent foolishly trying to absorb millions of Islamic migrants who, if they are true believers, believe that anyone not accepting the rule of Islam must be killed.  Angela Merkel is entirely responsible for the invasion of migrants, who will turn Europe Islamic within a few decades. High birthrates for the migrants low birthrate for the native Europeans.  The UN is a remarkably ineffective organization. Families can’t even get along. Why do people keep coming up with this idea of a new world order? Not going to happen. But then one might ask why we have such a hard time selling free market capitalism to other countries? The general secretary of the IPCC has stated that their aim is to remove the threat of capitalism from the world without any understanding of the role of free market capitalism in raising the wealth and well-being of its people. Seems to be located in the part of the brain of those in power, that is confident that all would be well if the rest of the world would just do what they recommend.

Angela Merkel is retiring, but turning things over to another woman who shares her ideas. We’ll see how that works out. At least they aren’t up for invading France again at present.
