I am glad that President Trump declared the state of National Emergency on the southern border. However, some people feel very uncomfortable with the spending bill that he approved just prior to his address. Among others, Daniel Horowitz wrote a very depressing but very astute analysis of some of its provisions. In a nutshell, this spending bill (that exists in more that one version, by the way) seems to limit the ability of the President to deter the invasion instead of enhancing it. He got peanuts for the funding (1.375 billion instead of 25) and accepted things such as amnesty, an increase in low-skilled workers, veto powers for local officials, etc. So Trump made his National Emergency address essentially to say that he would seek funds for the wall through some other channels. But that’s not all. On top of that, during his National Emergency address, President Trump missed the point about the invasion. As was cleverly pointed out by Stewart Rhodes of OathKeepers.org, the address failed to underline the military and terrorist dimensions of the invasion, focusing only on the crime and drug aspects of it. Cartels are not only in the business or drug and crime but also active in the fields of terrorism and military operations. With all that in mind, I think it is a sad day for America. It would have been better for the President not to sign the bill at all and simply declare National Emergency. At this point, we don’t even know if there will be a wall at all. In closing, I think we can see now some pattern emerging from the political machinations of both Democrats and establishment Republicans. Washington politicians are doing anything they can to obstruct President Trump. When spending bill negotiations occur, they impose on the President the worst possible conditions and demands. In other terms, they put Trump into a position where he has to give his consent to a lot of crap and poison pills in order to get a little bit of what he wants. That was already obvious in the spending bill last fall that renewed the funding for the military and it is even more obvious now. To shut down the government is better than to sign bills that go against national security. Rosemary Jenks at NumbersUSA gives her take about this recent bill on the air of Secure Freedom Radio just below. I also provide the video of the National Emergency address by the President.

Recently the White House presented its Framework on Immigration Reform and Border Security. Basically, this framework is an attempt by President Trump to get the funding necessary to build a wall between Mexico and the U.S. In order to convince the Democrats into accepting to support the funding of the wall, President Trump has proposed to legalize 1.8 million illegal aliens who came or who can be brought under the program known as DACA. No need to say that this proposal has angered, disappointed, astonished, horrified a great number of conservatives, right-wingers, alt-righters, patriots and nationalists. This seems like a total 180 degree-turn from one of his major campaign promises, that is to end illegal immigration into the U.S. Certainly, to offer a path to citizenship to 1.8 million illegal aliens sends the wrong message. If that goes through and becomes a reality, it is one of these decisions that President Trump will undoubtedly regret for the rest of his Administration and probably for the rest of his life.
One thing needs to be understood here. Nothing will please the Democrats. They hate Trump. Nothing he will do, say, sing or dance will be beautiful or fancy enough for them. President Trump is wasting his time trying to get the Democrats on board with his project of building a wall. And it is not a question of numbers. Providing amnesty to 1.8 million, billion or trillion illegal aliens is not the issue. The issue is political. In this context, I think it is important to put things into perspective and to understand what is at stake here. A physical wall is needed between Mexico and the U.S. and providing a path to citizenship to people who came illegally into the country is irresponsible, unacceptable and foolish. So what can be done? It is pretty simple actually. There is a loophole here that would be interesting to investigate. We know that President Trump has promised to have Mexico pay for the wall. Then, if that happens, technically, it won’t be the U.S. paying for the wall but Mexico. And that’s where it becomes interesting. Briefly put, Congress and Senate have to vote on and approve spending bills that fund the different operations of the government. In other terms, before any of the tax-payers’ dollars is spent on anything, Congress and Senate have to authorize their spending and that is absolutely normal in any free country.
But the fact that Trump has said several times that it is Mexico that will pay for the wall changes things. In effect, if it is Mexico that pays for the wall, then the funding of the wall doesn’t really come from the U.S. but from Mexico… In turn, that implies that the President doesn’t need the approval of the House and Senate to have the wall built. He can give the order for the construction of the wall and when it is finished, send the bill to Mexico directly or raise a tariff at the border that would serve to cover the cost. This way, President Trump can abandon this very dangerous idea of providing citizenship to 1.8 million illegal alien, since he only suggested that to bring Democrats to support his wall project. By following this game plan, President Trump would be able to both have the wall built AND terminate DACA, which would be directly in line with his campaign promises and with the platform he ran on. I strongly encourage President Trump and the Administration to reconsider what they are about to do with the DACA recipients. I feel that a terrible mistake is about to be made but it is not too late. Sometimes, the way out of a difficult situation can be narrow, small and tough but it is worth trying it if you consider the payback that is awaiting. Let’s Make America Great Again one step at a time. The House Intelligence Committee memo has been finally published last week and the truth is coming out about the extend to which the Deep State has tried to undermine and destroy Trump. We will learn more as things evolve. But in the meantime, we have another very important milestone to reach. Now it is time for the construction of the wall and for the illegal aliens to get back where they came from, finally.
The Trump Administration is getting ready to begin the construction of the wall between the United States and Mexico (some might say that a wall between the United States and Canada would be needed as well but that is a subject for another day…). Also, discussions are going on Capitol Hill about certain programs dealing with immigration and refugees such as DACA for example. In this context, I think it is important to have a complete view and understanding about the problem we are facing and the solutions necessary to solve it. There are four layers to the ‘wall’ the way I see it. First, President Trump wants to build a physical structure between the United States and Mexico, to prevent illegal immigration and the flow of drugs. Good. I support the idea. But we have to realize that the problem is more complex than that. The ‘wall’ as to be understood in a larger manner in order to be effective. The very perspicacious and astute Michael Cutler, a former INS agent, has brought to our attention over the years the question of the ports of entry into the United States. In effect, airports, seaports and border crossings are important vectors of illegal immigration and drug trafficking. So, secondly, unless these ports of entry are secured correctly as well in a way that is satisfactory, the wall will remain insufficient to really protect the country. Also non-physical elements such as programs like E-Verify and others can give a hand to secure the United States. Thirdly, the question of cybersecurity remains central in any security strategy. Since a cyber attack can happen anywhere anytime, the construction of a protective wall must be accompanied by a capable, strong, resilient and effective network of cybersecurity protections, methods and safety mesures in order to support the important investment that will be made in the south of the country. Everybody understands that if a strong border wall is built, invaders and criminals will simply look for weaker spots to attack the United States, physical or cyber.
And fourthly, the question of the virtual or psychological wall is important as well. I think it is the great Chinese military general Sun-Tzu that said that wars are won in the minds before being won on the battlefield. Enemies of the western world know that pretty well, I think. Ideologies have a strong impact on people and they pave the way very often for the quiet conquest of territories. Since a couple of years, we have seen the deployment of islamist militants to impose Shariah Law on our populations. Some have used guns to do it, others have used words. The bottom line is that the ideology of Shariah Supremacism has a strength and a power that is a threat to all western countries and nations. A national security strategy must include that in order to be effective and President Trump seems to be inclined to do just that. Also, ideologies are not the only things that fall under the category of the virtual or psychological. Language is a very potent tool of conquest too. Very often the conqueror will try to suppress the use of the language of the conquered, either at work or in the public space. The slow and progressive diminution of the language in use by a people brings with it the disappearance of the people itself speaking it. It is a very effective way to wipe out a whole nation without using guns or bombs.
Which brings me back to the physical wall…The wall between the United States and Mexico will stop the uncontrolled migration to the United States and Canada of people from around the world but especially from South America. In last years, listening to conservative media in the United States, I heard many times that South Americans, referred to currently as latinos, are creating problems in the many businesses where they work in the United States. We are getting reports that they refuse or can’t speak English there. From what I see here in Canada, it is the same thing. As soon as they reach a certain number of Spanish-speaking employees in one enterprise, they stop speaking English (or French in the Province of Quebec) to use Spanish instead. Some might say that in the era of diversity and multiculturalism it is not a problem. I think it is if we understand the real nature of warfare. The imposition of a language on a people brings about the conquest of this people. This problem has metastasized so much in the United States that certain elected officials have begun to talk openly about making English the official language in certain states of the Union if not in the entire country.
The Province of Quebec has been a precursor in these matters. In 1977, the National Assembly adopter Bill 101 to protect the status of the French language in Quebec and make it both the official language of the province itself and the language of the work place. At the time, it was made specifically to protect the population of Quebec from the imposition of English used by Anglo-Canadians or Americans to operate the conquest of the territory. As you can see, times are changing. Now all western nations see their territory being invaded by foreign and hostile populations, sometimes using violence but some other times using stealthy means such as religion or language. So I beg President Trump, in parallel with the construction of the physical wall, to order the preparation of a bill that would make English the official language of the United States. Our countries face an emergency and strong measures must be put in place to save all our nations with their culture, history and civilization. No need to say that it stands to reason that all nations of the western world should do the same and adopt such a law to protect the language of their national population.
To Make America Great Again starts with a strong wall with its four layers. If it works, the United States will have a very very bright future…in English!
