We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Immigration and the Deep State

17th January 2018

Steve Sailer explains it all to you.

Last Thursday, Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) scheduled a meeting with the president to try to trick him into supporting their politically suicidal immigration bill. To their dismay, however, when they arrived they found that Trump had also invited realist immigration experts such as Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), and the president’s speechwriter Stephen Miller.

In the ensuing debate, Durbin and Graham were demolished. So Durbin, his plot foiled, tried the underhanded ploy of asserting to the press, perhaps inaccurately, that Trump had used the now-notorious vulgarity to characterize Haiti.

Of course, Haiti ranks 163rd on the U.N.’s Human Development Index while Norway ranks first, so, as usual, what drives the establishment most crazy about Trump is his tendency to tell the rough truth.

This situation illustrates quite nicely the Standard Operating Procedure of the D.C. political class. Senators think that if they come to a President with a ‘bipartisan’ deal, he is ipso facto required to support it. A Senator balked in that expectation is totally entitled to act like a spoiled child and have a tantrum in the press. The press are totally entitled to use anything handy to trash a politician that they don’t like or who disagrees with them. Etc.
