I remarked recently in my obituary for One Old Vet that the Drudge Report has been excellent on immigration news this election cycle, far better than on previous occasions.
Drudge can take another bow for publicizing on Friday/Saturday Trump:'This Will Be the Last Election that the Republicans Have a Chance of Winning' David Brody CBN News 09-09-2016
In this apparently exclusive interview Trump showed that he has grasped the implications of Hilary Clinton’s Immigration plank and is willing to weaponize it.
"This will be the last election that the Republicans have a chance of winning," Trump tells us from backstage at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., on Friday. "You’re going to have people flowing across the border, you're going to have illegal immigrants coming in and they're going to be legalized and they're going to be able to vote and once that all happens you can forget it… Already the path is much more difficult for the Republicans. You just have to look at the maps."History may say that Trump conquered the GOP nomination because of what he planned to do about immigration and won the General because of what Hilary plans to do about it.
VDARE.com has been documenting the Democratic shift to No Borders since Obama Administration engineered the Kidinvasion in the summer of 2014: Pelosi Stated Obamacrat Immigration Policy: Not Open Borders: NO Borders. GOP/AdelZuck response: Zzzzz. This was reiterated later in the year: Obama’s Hispanic Immigration Chief Arrogantly Flaunts “No Borders” Policy. And last November it became clear that Obama’s successors acquiesced in this Treason: Democratic Presidential Aspirants Confirm Party’s “No Borders” Policy: Central Americans Respond.
Slate gleefully celebrated this in May: Clinton’s Immigration Game Changer Hillary Clinton just went left of everyone. By Jamelle Bouie May 6, 2015
On Tuesday she gave… full-throated support to comprehensive immigration reform, going beyond President Obama—and activist expectations—to endorse changes to the immigration detention system, a path to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants, protections for children brought to the country illegally, and an expansion of the president’s executive order, meant to keep millions of unauthorized immigrants from deportation and give millions more the right to apply for work permits and other documentation…Sweeping amnesty like this of course will hugely accelerate the illegal inflow.
“…we can’t wait any longer for a path to full and equal citizenship.”
…Unlike Obama, who excluded large groups of unauthorized immigrants from his deferred action programs, Clinton wants to “do everything possible under the law to go even further” for large groups of people, including “many parents of DREAMers and others with deep ties and contributions to our communities.”
Of course with any other Republican nominee, the Democrats could reasonably expect the GOP Big Donors to enforce tacit acquiescence, as with Romney in 2012.
And they can still count on full Air Cover from the MSM. No other American news outlet featured Trump’s raising Clinton’s immigration extremism except some of the Left point-and splutter webzines - which liked his election prediction.
But Amnesty has always been poison in 21st Century American politics. It has repeatedly failed because of the Grassroots, alerted by talk radio and the internet. This time, they have a leader.
So why does Hilary want to take such a risk? And with relaxing punishment on Black criminals, as the Slate essay above noted?
