The Lightbringer+

The God-Emperor continues to be more popular with the US electorate than Obama ever was.
President Donald Trump’s approval rating hit 50 percent in Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking poll Monday, which puts him ahead of his predecessor at the same point in the presidency. The last time Trump hit 50 percent in the Rasmussen tracking poll was February 27. At the time, he was generally within the 47-50 percent range. The President’s approval rating outpaces that of former President Barack Obama, who sat at 46 percent in Rasmussen’s tracking poll on April 2, 2010.
But the more important thing about Trump's persistent popularity is the way this reveals the increasingly limited ability of the US media to influence the way the American people think. They are throwing literally everything and the kitchen sink at this man and yet none of it sticks to him.

At this point, he could go down to the border, personally machine gun invading immigrants, and his popularity would increase 10 percent. The Stormy Daniels affair reveals that we have reached the point of negative returns for media hit pieces on the president.

The Washington Post is complaining that Trump is becoming increasingly hardline on immigration.
President Trump’s sharp shift in tone on immigration this week from would-be dealmaker back to the hard-line stance he campaigned on comes amid signs that some of his conservative base is growing impatient for him to fulfill promises on the border wall and other measures to crack down on illegal immigration.

Over the past two days, Trump has issued declarations on Twitter that shut the door on a legislative deal to protect young undocumented immigrants from deportation, blamed Democrats for the failure, demanded the Mexican government take stronger action to close the border, and conflated a refu­gee crisis from Central America with the Obama-era deferred-action program that Trump ended in the fall.
Here is hoping that we will see truly hardline policies put in place soon. His conservative base is right. It is time to send them back and build the wall.

The media and their puppet masters have got to come up with something more to break him or they are done. They tried to get him on Russian collusion, on Stormy Daniels, on the Steele Dossier, etc. It isn't working. They have no smoking guns and cannot stop him. If he can build the Wall he will win in an electoral landslide.

That reported tidal wave of invaders from Central America presents a perfect opportunity for a well-publicized phone call to the Mexican President, telling him to stop it or else. When he predictably runs to the media with his tearful refusal, Trump has the perfect political excuse to tax all remittances to Mexico at 100 percent, send the National Guard to the border, and ramp up work on the wall. Bonus points available if the Coast Guard or Border Patrol can catch Soros, Schumer et al. dumping children's bodies near border for usual media photo op/sob st

I caught a few seconds of FNC Sunday. Chris Wallace asked some congressman from California a question concerning Trump, I don't remember what it was, it doesn't really matter. The important thing was the congress critter's response, "He's tearing our society apart." I think the congressman believes that, and from his point of view, he's right. That's why they'll have no qualms about assassinating Trump if they can. He's tearing our society apart. I actually felt a chill down my spine when I heard that.

That such a governing model gives the "experts" license to do whatever the hell they want and enrich themselves why doing so is just a coincidence. They have the public good in mind at all times.

I think Trump is not a contard even if he sounds like a Boomer. Since he understands women better than anyone he understands the mindset of the Left.

This is my guess, Trump amplifies the political theatre that anyone group of Democratic voters are given for a particular week or two, this attention to one group demoralizes the other groups so badly they then start really hating on the group who gets the attention, (basically the D voters are little bitches).

That view came into national office with President Wilson, didn't it?

I think it predates him. Teddy Roosevelt was as "progressive" as they come. But, since he was a Republican, the Democrats disowned him. I was thinking about public education yesterday for some reason. Public education, when under local control, in the US used to be rigorous. The parents who paid for it insisted on it. So you see letters written by low ranking soldiers just off the farm during the Civil War (or, as it is known around here, The War of Northern Aggression) that are eloquent and profound. Then the experts took over education. And things started to go down hill, fast. Why? Its no secret. To the "experts" public "education" wasn't about helping each individual reach their potential and familiarize them with the works that had created the common culture to which they were heirs. it certainly wasn't about educating people so that they could participate in their own governance responsibly and wisely. Proponents of public education were quite open about what they wanted to do, which was to produce people suited for the industrial age and the expert driven state. Obedient and with just enough knowledge to be useful to society. When Ray Bradbury wrote Fahrenheit 451 he wasn't describing a possible future society, he was describing a process that had already been going on for decades and seems to be reaching its culmination today. Books make people dissatisfied. Dissatisfied people are hard to manage and disagreeable. Best to get rid of the books. So now you have "English Teachers" who majored in English who have never had to read a word of Shakespeare and are quite open about their disdain for him and his works. Ignorant people are easy to control. In another forum someone commented that kids today only know "racist or not racist," that they have no knowledge to work with. They can't think because they haven't been educated enough to have anything to think about.

Travelling troupes of actors used to tour the Wild West and put on productions of Shakespeare's plays. They were quite popular with cow hands and miners. As late as the 50s it was common for middle class people to join book clubs to read and discuss very challenging books. They would listen to classical music and watch operas broadcast over the TV. Since that kind of behavior was not conducive to the the progressive project it was derided and discouraged.

"They can't think because they haven't been educated enough to have anything to think about."

Very good, Ron.
That is a key point that has defined all the most annoying movements in the past 50 years....Environmentalists who know nothing about science. Poverty experts who have never had a course in economics. Economists who never speak on economics. Revisionist historians. Fake military experts. Big thinkers who have very little to add to the discussion but Leftist slogans. Cheesy journalists who spent years learning to write in the journalistic style but never any factual knowledge. From this we also get race identity movements and tiny gender pride "movements", which were spinoffs of modern feminism and New Age nonsense.

People who spend a lifetime accumulating facts and truth are no match for fictionists who can re-imagine realities that never existed as marching orders for an "inevitable" future. This has become the bane and disfunction of modern life....that is what is "tearing the country apart".

Some people like to compare Donald Trump to Andrew Jackson, but I believe that is too strong. Trump is more like Sam Houston...a flawed individual, willing to do what is necessary in a hostile environment, within a weak and undisciplined organization. But at the end of the day, many will say that he was right...and we should have listened to him at the time....which is the lament of failure and defeat.

"Public education, when under local control, in the US used to be rigorous. The parents who paid for it insisted on it."

In the days of my grandparents, public education was actually private, in the sense that the parents paid the schoolmaster and provided the school. Attendance was not mandatory, and kids who didn't behave got tossed out, which rarely happened.
"Public" education, with forced attendance, was cooked up by the Progressives to create an obedient class of factory workers--and they said so! Woodrow Wilson and others pointed out that the Elites would always send their kids to private schools to get a real education, so no harm done. Henry Ford extolled the plan.

The waves of immigrants in the Ellis Island era helped them with their agenda too. Before, the majority of kids entering public schools did so already having a basic level of literacy because they'd been taught at home. The Ellis Islander kids were mostly illiterate and couldn't function in schools meant for American children, so of course the schools needed to change to meet the needs of the needy.

I'll believe Trump is taking a hard line when he orders air strikes on that "convoy" of invaders.

I'm convinced this is going to culminate in Mexican War, Round 2. And we need to start thinking about war objectives. My recommendations:

1. Removal of all Mexican nationals from U.S. territory (will be accomplished through normal removal of enemy aliens on declaration of hostilities, but it's a war goal).

2. Border adjustment. Specifically, the new border will be defined by 1 km East of the Colorado River, and 1 km South of the Rio Grande. Baja California becomes U.S. territory. Note that this both shortens the border considerably and allows the establishment of a defense-in-depth. Mexican nationals in Baja are to be removed.

I happen to agree and the Mexicans do too, but it may be a tough sell unless the Mexicans flinch first. Once the Mexican military cross the border in strength, it will not end.

I could not say where Anglos could make a stand on the West Coast. (Probably the east side of the desert and mountains.) I am more familiar with the Gulf Coast.

In Texas, I doubt they could be stopped short of the Colorado River, which runs through Austin. South Texas starts out as Mexican occupied territory....up to San Antonio during the first hour of open hostilities. (We lose six military bases in San Antonio, plus the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi.)

The zone between Austin and San Antonio will be contested. The Mex first goal will be Houston, which will be difficult for us to hold, but they won't get into Louisiana. Dallas will be the second goal, but that is simply a bridge too far. Just a question how long the Mexicans in Fort Worth-Dallas can hold out without relief from the Mexican military. The best US airbases for the pushback will be Tinker in OK, Barksdale in North Louisiana, and Little Rock in Arkansas.

You can probably forget the idea of expelling the Mexican nationals. There is no practical way to do that during a shooting situation. Better to intern them until hostilities are over, but that means assembly, collection, and use of those FEMA facilities in the meantime. You will need hostages to keep the Mexican military from sanitizing their occupied zone of Americans. Yes, they would do that...and No, having even more hostages will not keep them from doing it anyway.

I do not expect it to last long but it could be intense.

Blogger Hammerli280 April 03, 2018 3:13 PM  

@57: Actually, I expect Mexican War, Round 2 to be short...and like Round 1, the U.S. will take the initiative. The Mexican government has been encouraging their people to enter illegally for decades. Which is certainly not the behavior of a friendly state.

The balance of forces favors the U.S., overwhelmingly. Our regular military is vastly larger, much better equipped, and far better trained. Toss in the reserve components and it gets even more lopsided. I won't even mention bottled sunshine.

No. Any serious resistance would come from 5th columnists already in the U.S. Which will merely serve to enrage the American public and make the peace terms harsher.

As for repatriation of enemy aliens, there are established procedures for this.

That people with essentially a grade-school education wrote at a higher level than most university graduates do today is a remarkable commentary on the sad state of education in so many places today.

It's also a commentary on how an essentially Protestant, Anglo zeal for education, still seen in homeschooling today, along with a high-IQ Christian people, is necessary for education, rather than the "one-size-fits-all" contemporary system.

What's interesting is some schools in the suburbs have advanced courses for those already advanced due to extra schooling at home. I know this due to a couple of GenZ kids I helped to mentor in grade school in STEM areas.

One kid is now a Freshman in high school, and next year he will be taking Calculus as a Sophomore. He is also in a Math Club with competitions that introduce him to a broader group of mathematics problems then he would ordinarily run into in class or at home. There are opportunities to take higher level college math for his last three years, programming, engineering classes all with college credits, and etc. Reading and reading comprehension lags a bit, but he gets fairly high level teaching in that too (still in the upper 2% SAT levels).

So, there are schools that work with children, who admittedly are also well home-schooled too (or they would not be so far ahead).

During the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps engaged in thousands of public works projects...all under the supervision of the US Army. They concentrated the civilian volunteers into camps and it was run much like the military. Yes, they even wore uniforms.

My great uncle, Ben Reynolds, was one of those volunteers from Arkansas and he was sent to drive a dump truck in Arizona. They had social dances for the volunteers, where he met his future wife....a Mormon school teacher.

I am pretty sure the Federal CCC legislation is still on the books and could be cranked up to build the wall along the border zone. If President Trump asked for volunteers to build the wall, he could have a million within the month.
