Raymond B. Cattell quote from 1984

with 23 comments

“Societies in the past that have become too pluralistic, like India, and the old Mediterranean countries like the Roman Empire, didn’t perceive the danger to moral standards that arose from having too many differing moral standards, too many differing religions, too many differing cultures. On the other hand, there are advantages to a country in having some diversity, in that each can be used as an experiment to see in which direction the group as a whole might advantageously go. I think that there’s a happy medium on this matter of diversity, and it has probably been overshot in the U.S. at the present. Alienation is now quite severe, and it’s partly due to wholesale, unchecked immigration. Few politicians seem willing to confront the issue. I think it might not be a bad idea to remove the inscription from the Statue of Liberty which calls for the ‘wretched refuse’ of the other countries to migrate here. This is not what you want to build a nation of.”

I agree with the above, and it’s the main reason I hate Democrats, even though Democrats may be more right than Republicans on issues like healthcare and taxes. Unchecked immigration and moral decline and lack of national unity are what’s going to destroy our nation.

Percent of Americans who speak English at home

44.6% in California do not speak English at home. But that drops to only 2.5% in West Virginia. However, despite its lack of immigrants, it must be noted that West Virginia is no paradise, as it’s home to the some of the stupidest, low-class, and crime-prone whites in the country.

Austrian elections

The regular people of Austria don’t want any more Muslim immigration, and who can blame them?

What’s amazing is that so many regular people have had their minds controlled by the elites, and let them ruin the countries they grew up in by allowing massive immigration from less developed countries.

In the United States, where Trump won the election, partially because of his anti-immigration stance, but only partially so, we are still far short of unanimous agreement among the regular people that we need to put a stop to immigration. And until we have such agreement among the regular people, the danger is very real that in 2021 we get another open-borders administration which undoes everything Trump did.

White House following my advice on DACA

New York Times:

Before agreeing to provide legal status for 800,000 young immigrants brought here illegally as children, Mr. Trump will insist on the construction of a wall across the southern border, the hiring of 10,000 immigration agents, tougher laws for those seeking asylum and denial of federal grants to “sanctuary cities,” officials said.

The White House is also demanding the use of the E-Verify program by companies to keep illegal immigrants from getting jobs, an end to people bringing their extended family into the United States, and a hardening of the border against thousands of children fleeing violence in Central America. Such a move would shut down loopholes that encourage parents from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras to send their children illegally into the United States, where many of them melt into American communities and become undocumented immigrants.

This is exactly as I recommended. I am glad that someone in the White House still remembers why Trump was elected. Maybe someone is even reading my blog!

ISIS attack in Edmonton

http://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/police-investigating-acts-of-terrorism-eps-officer-and-four-civilians-injured-in-series-of-attacks-1.3614221

Thousands of Syrian refugees have been settled in Alberta during the past three years. I predict that the perpetrator is a Syrian refugee, proving that Trump was right, but we will see.

Can’t figure out what Trump is going to do

I’ve given up trying to figure out Trump’s position on DACA, we will find out what it is soon enough. However, if Trump gives in on DACA without getting any significant anti-immigration legislation in return (E-Verify, visa tracking, more funding for immigration courts and immigration enforcement, funding for the Wall, etc.), that’s going to be end of any future hope for legislative victories on immigration.

Meanwhile, a lot of new stories about Trump’s relation with Jeff Sessions. Jeff Sessions is sticking it out because his mission to control illegal immigration is more important to him than his bitterness towards Trump, even though Trump was a total asshole to him. Without Sessions, Trump’s anti-immigration platform would probably fall apart, so we should all be thankful to Sessions for sticking it out.

Why do we need tax reform?

Commenter ughface writes:

Honestly: why does everything hinge on tax reform? In fact, why is tax reform even marginally important? If taxes stayed exactly the same as they are this year, and were last year, I think most people would be happy with it. But if its ‘reformed’ (whatever that means), and the average Trump voter saves a few hundred dollars a year, they won’t even notice.

If the wall gets built, 50 million Trump voters will be extremely happy, and the country would be fundamentally transformed.

Tax reform is almost irrelevant. I don’t know why it’s even an issue to be discussed at all, much less labelled that upon which everything hinges.

The 1986 immigration “reform”

Amnesty was granted to 3 million illegal aliens. At the same time, laws were passed to make it illegal to knowingly hire illegal aliens.

The reform was sold as having compassion for the illegals who were here, but now we would really crack down on the problem and put an end to it, and there would no longer be incentives for illegal aliens to come here because, with the new laws, they wouldn’t be able to find work.

We now know how wrong that was. The laws against hiring illegal aliens have barely been enforced. The population of illegal aliens exploded by millions upon millions. Amnesty usually sends the message that bad behavior is rewarded, and encourages more bad behavior. That’s why I am opposed to a tax amnesty for corporate money allegedly kept overseas. The lesson would be that the strategy works, and corporations will do more of it while they wait for the next tax amnesty. (I say “allegedly kept overseas” because in many cases it’s not real money but just accounting tricks.)

What we need in exchange for any kind of amnesty, such as amnesty for so-called “dreamers,” are laws with tooth that can’t be undone by future presidents who don’t want to enforce the laws. That’s why I like the Wall, that’s something that can’t be torn down on the sneak. But we also need visa tracking, E-Verify, and much stronger penalties for hiring illegals such that companies are too afraid of getting caught to do it. And we need strict reduction in legal immigration.

“Dreamers” deal?

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/immigration/349319-if-democrats-actually-care-about-dreamers-lets-make-a-deal

This op-ed in the Hill repeats exactly what I wrote yesterday. That Trump should offer amnesty to the so-called “dreamers” in exchange for E-Verify, funding for the wall, funding for more immigration enforcement and deportations, penalties for repeat immigration violations, and reduced legal immigration. Except the editorial is aimed at Democrats, not at Trump.

If a deal like this becomes part of the national conversation, it’s a win for Trumpism, even if Democrats reject it.
