Mark Steyn Also Notices WSJ/FNB Avoid Contrasting Rubio…

Mark Steyn also notices how Fox Business News and the Wall Street Journal were in no hurry to compare or contrast Marco Rubio with Donald Trump on the issue of immigration enforcement, borders, deportation and Rubio’s gang-of-eight affiliations. 

fnb debate 5

The debate?

Well, I thought the most interesting moment came when Donald Trump brought up Eisenhower:

Let me just tell you that Dwight Eisenhower—a good president, great president, people liked him. ‘I Like Ike’, right? The expression ‘I Like Ike’? – moved a million and a half illegal immigrants out of this country, moved them just beyond the border: They came back. Moved them again, beyond the border: They came back. Then moved them way south. They never came back.

To the establishments of both parties and the media, Trump is beyond the pale. Yet he keeps, confidently, moving beyonder. And, as he does so, he’s moving the pale. NBC News.

At this point in the evening, the candidates were arguing not whether it was disgraceful but whether it was do-able. Trump’s response is that not only is it do-able but it’s already been done – by a two-term Republican president. Eisenhower, by the way, was the last non-politician to be drafted as presidential nominee (and “I Like Ike” came from Irving Berlin’s Call Me Madam). His sudden reappearance in the GOP pantheon is a fine example of the difference Trump’s made to this primary season: without his presence in the race, no-one would be talking about the practicalities of mass deportation of illegal aliens.

Whether that’s a good thing is a matter of opinion. But, considering that the erasing of America’s borders is the signature issue that propelled Trump to the top of the polls and has kept him there for six months, there’s been a curious reluctance on the part of all four debate-hosting networks to get into the subject.

Wouldn’t it be appropriate, in the present atmosphere, to question Marco Rubio on the Gang of Eight business and get a bit of a ding-dong going between him and Trump? Apparently not.

So two minutes of Wetback Revisited is apparently the closest we’ll get. It arose in the context of John Kasich and Jeb Bush’s objections to Trump’s views on the armies of the undocumented. Kasich actually said, “Think about the families. Think about the children.” Then he scoffed, “Come on, folks. We all know you can’t pick them up and ship them back across the border. It’s a silly argument. It is not an adult argument.”

Bush, on the other hand, thought that even talking about this stuff was a mistake that would work only to Hillary’s benefit: “They’re doing high-fives in the Clinton campaign right now when they hear this.”

How pitiful a candidate is Jeb? This pitiful: He’s not even competitive in the bleeding-heart compassionate establishment squish sub-section of the primary. Kasich offered sentimentalist pabulum – “Think about the children” – and elite condescension: Trump’s position isn’t “adult”. But Jeb basically previewed his general-election fetal position: We can’t talk about this because we have to play this game on the Democrats’ terms.

So I’m less persuaded than other pundits that Jeb has staunched the bleeding. He’s at four per cent in the most recent Fox and Quinnipiac polls, so there’s a limit to how much more he can bleed anyway. But did he reverse his fortunes? No.

He and Ben Carson both began the debate with something to prove – Bush that he isn’t just a legacy pick who’s not up to it, Carson that he wasn’t damaged by the sudden forensic attention to his autobiography. I confess I don’t quite get the good doctor’s appeal, but a mild-mannered man insisting that he attacked his mother with his hammer is certainly a novel kind of candidacy and there seems to be a market for it. He shored up his support far better than Jeb did his. (read more)

      Remember when Trump first said “We are going to build a wall?” The media went nuts, and Trump responded with, “and Mexico will pay for it!” Last night O’Reilly said, “I’m with you on the wall.” Earlier this week even Hillary talked about her support for a “barrier.” Ya think a wall might make a good barrier?

      Trump won that round didn’t he? He will win this one too!

      The best moment of the debate didn’t happen during the debate. It was an ad that followed the immigration exchange. An elderly black woman telling a gut wrenching story of devastated black neighborhoods… Devastated by jobs lost to illegal immigration. The woman was Barbara Jordan, an icon of the civil rights movement.

      I’ll tell you guys, I’ve lived in this country for 30 years. I’ve learnt that African American women have a finely tuned BS-meter… There is a very strong sense in that community that they’ve been had. They get Trump. Diamond and Silk are just the tip of the iceberg.

      • Last night on Mark Levin show, Trump was interviewed. He still said he would build the wall and Mexico would pay for it but now he says it doesn’t have to be along the entire border, They will be able to use natural barriers. I went to his website and stated the wall has to be the ENTIRE length of our southern border


        • WSB says:

          I think he means continuous surveillance – after his trip to the border, he realized that there are just areas where a physical wall doesn’t need to be built.


        • BigMamaTEA says:

          conservativeinny, it doesn’t quite work that way. I like in Oklahoma. Been there lots of times. There are areas where there are mountain(for this part of the country)terrain, then there is of the course the Rio Grande River, etc. etc. But the vast majority can be fenced with the appropriate fencing (double wide meaning a wall with a space to drive a vehicle,another equal wall, 40 -50 feet high, flat non-grip surface etc) There are some area where drone , and camera surveillance with BP Troops on the ground monitoring works well. Um, and there won’t be a lot of “eminent domain” issues. There are areas in Texas where Ranchers would gladly donate to stop from having to rescue the sick, the rape victims, and bury dead, who die nearby just from their journey, or what happened to them on the way. And they also are fighting off Mexican Drug cartels, who like to intimidate the land owners, by placing the heads of their victims on the land owners fence posts. How’d you like to walk up on that every morning, while walking your property?

          A wall is not a total panacea, but it would certainly limit a lot of the entry points, and help narrow them down to more controlled areas.

Maybe the deported can do some good back in their home country and modify it to match opportunities here having learned (hopefully) the difference. I say, time to deport them back, they’ve had opportunities the legal immigrants never got because American couldn’t bring them here for lack of jobs. Jobs that businesses can’t find to fill with labor here, hire legal immigrants.

    Not at the debate, but on the Mark Levin radio show Trump explained and expanded about how so many illegals could get removed from this country.
    As employers can no longer hire them legally, and as families can no longer be ”reunified,” as well as visas being enforced strictly and as Sanctuary Cities are shut down (all the law today, btw) the illegals will leave of their own accord.
    I believe this is true.
    Most will leave.
    Only a minority rump of the illegals will need force applied to get them out.
    And they will deserve everything they get.

    Donald Trump Interview With Maria Bartiromo 11-12-2015
    Regards removing the illegals from our country
    “won’t that cause disruptions?’ she asks.

    My Lord in Heaven…what kind of stupid question is that? Everything that has to be done is going to cause MASSIVE disruptions….that is the PURPOSE of taking our Nation back from the brink of disaster.
    None of these TV people understand PROCESS…they only think of EVENTS.
    (I was taught that God invented Time so that everything that happens doesn’t all bang together at once)

    One. Build a fence at the border. Stop going AND coming in and out on the USA…anyone who leaves has to be recorded as well as anyone entering…and a NATIONAL VISITORS DATA BASE maintained on ALL of these.

    Two.Take charge of VISAs for eveyone IN THE NATION. ANYONE THAT HAS OVERSTAYED their visa…..locate them via LAW ENFORCEMENT…and REMOVE them no matter what they are doing….they are ILLEGALS….(this is not about some poor family unless they brought their family in on their visa)….then go and reapply for new visas…some will not be coming back…all of these are entered into the NATIONAL VISITOR data base…..and all border locations MUST have access to anyone attempting to enter or leave illegally and dealt with RIGHT THEN AND THERE….no release to come back for court hearing. Use Administrative Judges, not elected or appointed officials. Go to holding facility, and they PAY FOR ROOM AND BOARD while there. No Free lodging and Food or entertainment for people violating or attempting to break the law.

    Three. Set up massive enforcement for eVerify with jail for CEO and HR execs who violate the hiring of illegals…JAIL, and massive fine. You have to inflict PAIN and COST on the top people…without special considerations….

    Four. Impose funds transfer restrictions and audit for all funds entering and exiting the country electronically….ALL funds leaving to go outside the country that are NOT bank to bank audited corporate transfers must be taxes and held to prevent illegal aliens from sending money home while staying in the USA.

    Five. All rented housing MUST be registered as to legality of the tenant, and cities must enforce real estate OCCUPANCY laws and code enforcement to prevent groups staying together as a clump or family sheltering illegals….Violators will be taken THEN to the Enforcement Route to determine deportation means and timing.

    Six. All schools will be required to register all kids by birth certificate and parent citizenship and legality of being in the country. If the kids are in school, even if the kids are anchor babies by birth, if the PARENTS who are legally responsible for the wellbeing and maintenance of Under Age Kids are illegally here, the group must return to the parents’ country of origin and taken out of public schooling.

    Seven. All Department of Motor Vehicles departments must verify legality of a person’s status in the country as well as criminal background checks before issuing any driver’s licenses…and ALL auto Insurance companies must verify legality of anyone seeking to purchase auto insurance, and all financing institutions loaning money for purchase of a motor vehicle must verify legality of the person being in the country….and no insurance can be issued nor vehicle title sold to anyone not legally in the USA.

    Eight. Any social assistance program that has any money, food, housing, clothing, healthcare assistance, or counseling must verify and validate the legality of anyone using these services in order for the services to be rendered. All Emergency Room services rendered must not allow the patient to LEAVE until they are detained along with family members who might accompany them until the legal status is determined and they must be bound by law to pay for any services they USE at these facilities.

    Nine. Any section 8 or HUD housing must determine the legal immigration or visa status of recipients of such services and assets prior to them gaining any such living quarters.

    So if we close the borders, prevent employers from hiring illegals, stop money being sent back to their country of citizenship, prevent social service without legality, prevent illegal ingress and egress to the borders and transportation hubs, stop housing, food, welfare, healthcare service and limit ability to obtain transportation and insurance….and close schools to kids whose parents are not legally here….

    Guess what…no kicking in doors in the middle of the night with armed jackbooted military folks rounding up illegals and putting them into cattle cars to ship off like a totalitarian dictatorship will happen at all.

    The illegals will HAVE TO LEAVE on their own…they will be OUTED when they attempt to get or use services created for US CITIZENS to which they are NOT ENTITLED, but have gotten used to having……

    These DISRUPTIONS are clear cut, methodical, easily procedurized, most using existing organizations and institutions, and the INS and Border Security we are paying for but not getting much use from.

    GOP Debate was stuffed with Rubio supporters
    Rumors are circulating of significant influence by the Wisconsin State Republican Party and Scott Walker loyalists who manipulated the ticket selection process to ensure the audience was of a, “more Mainstream Republican” variety, a process believed to have been quietly endorsed by RNC Chair, Reince Priebus.

    This manipulation is said to have given particular attention to Rubio supporters.

    It is well known in Republican circles that Governor Walker has very little regard for the campaigns of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

    “Expose Trump.”

    So went the repeated mantra as Republican Party operatives set out to manipulate the audience leanings.

    It is not known if the Rubio campaign knew of the manipulation but is yet further evidence of the Republican Establishment now more directly invested in the success of Marco Rubio’s bid for the White House.

    Whispers are also circulating of a far more aggressive anti-Trump and Cruz approach being readied for the next GOP debate to be held December 15th in Las Vegas.

    MSNBC Bias: Katie Tur Forgets We Deport People Every Day When She Questioned Trump
    [In this article I skewer both Tur and Chris Matthews, using quotes from JFK and Barbara Jordan!]

    We’ve seen some biased journalists over the years, but MSNBC’s Katie Tur sunk to new lows last night on Hardball with Chris Matthews when she viciously interrogated Donald Trump over his immigration reform plan to humanely deport 11 million illegal migrants, conjuring up images of JFK’s and Eisenhower’s “Operation Wetback” of over a half-century ago, a successful law enforcement program we extensively documented 3 weeks ago. Despite the fact ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) humanely deports up to several thousand people per day — many by airplane to Asia, Africa, and Central America — Keith Olbermann’s former girlfriend kept obnoxiously insisting his immigration reform plan, of which she obviously disagrees, is inhumane because 60 years ago the Border Patrol dumped repeat offenders in the desert town of Mexicali, about 100 miles east of Tijuana. In the interview Tur repugnantly insisted ICE’s ERO would use the same deportation methods the Border Patrol used six decades ago, when it’s just not done that way any longer.


    • pageoturner says:

      Tur failed to mention those dumped in Mexicali came back so they had to be put on ships to Veracruz. Anyone who’s so dense they don’t understand “illegal” and returns after being repatriated over the border to their own country is not needed in this country,

    there was another one a few days ago about a 10 foot pole but I didn’t archive it, so I don’t remember exactly.

    I love that Murdoch tweet you keep putting up. It implies Trump did well in all four debates, standing out as the winner in the first three, with nobody else doing well in those debates.

    How hopeless do you have to be to argue that your guy does well only 25% of the time?

    And he can only do that because he won’t let his reporters press his guys on their disingenuous statements.

    The thing that Trump needs to surface with open borders illegal immigration is the destructive effect it is having on American public health. Specifically it is importing America’s impending Tuberculosis (TB) epidemic.

    This Obama Administration policy of having TB positive illegal alien children released to illegal immigrant parents scares the heck out of me from the point of view of epidemiology.

    In the 1920s TB was the eighth leading cause of death for children 1-to-4 years old. Since then American public health has been so effective in preventing it that the USA no longer has any “herd immunity” to TB.

    This “catch and release” illegal alien policy is horrible from the infectious disease point of view in that phlegm or aerosolized sputum that are contaminated with Mycobacterium tuberculosis are active biohazards that have long latent infection periods. This makes “exposure” very easy. The clinical definition of TB Exposure — which I found in a University of Vanderbilt student medical file PDF — is the following:

    “A person is considered to be exposed if there is shared breathing space with someone with infectious pulmonary or laryngeal tuberculosis at a time when the infectious person is not wearing a mask and the other person is not wearing an N95 respirator. Usually a person has to be in close contact with someone with infectious tuberculosis for a long period of time to become infected; however, some people do become infected after short periods, especially if the contact is in a closed or poorly ventilated space.

    The “Uniparty” political elites — as Sundance calls them — are statistical and epidemiological illiterates.

    They are playing a game of “hiding the TB Spike” via spreading out the illegal kids the way the Obama operatives at the US Census played with employment data in the fall of 2012 to help reelect Obama.

    They have no real idea what that means for public institutions, our kids and other immune impaired. All they want is a US Amnesty to seal their power the way open borders sealed the Left’s power in California.

    It is magical thinking all the way.

    Testable anti-bodies to TB infection appear in two to 12 weeks for skin and blood tests and the incubation period for full blown active TB is six months to two(+) years.

    While active TB can be found by chest X-rays, screening for latent TB infection (LTBI) can only be found by two tests that screen blood and skin. The problem for screening these illegal alien immigrants is, strangely enough, that they are from countries with wide scale TB vaccinations.

    The TB vaccine is called BCG (Bacille Calmette-Guérin). It is considered controversial because it isn’t “very effective” in countries with a low incidence of TB, like the USA.

    However, that isn’t the biggest reason BCG isn’t usually given in the United States. Mass inoculation with BCG would remove both latent TB skin tests from the public health arsenal and increase the false positive rates from blood tests because those treated with BCG vaccinations all have the anti-bodies that current skin and blood tests look for.

    The American public health system would lose most of its ability to track the spread of latent TB in the American population. The current public health paradigm of track, isolate and treat TB is about to come to a horrible end for the American public health system.

    A LTBI individual represents a 5% risk of developing active TB in the first 2 years of infection and is at a cumulative 10% risk of active TB over his or her lifetime. The US Army medical community estimates 1/3 of the world population has LTBI, with World Health Organization (WHO) data showing 9.2 million active TB cases and 1.7 million deaths annually.

    By way of contrast, the 2010 estimate for the US LTBI population was at 4.2% (11 million people).

    That 1/3 LTBI infection number for foreigners means that adding one million new illegal aliens results in 300,000(+) new people with LTBI, or a 3% increase in America’s pool of LTBI people over that 2010 estimate. Some 30,000 of these people will have an active TB in their lifetime, and if we are talking recently infected children, up to 15,000 of that may happen in the next 2-years.

    As a parent of young kids, this plain terrifies me.

    Trump should use that information to terrify the public at the price of the Uniparty elites.

      In 1983 or 1984 while going to school, I worked at a restaurant in Houston, TX. A cook from India or that part of the world anyway, came down w/ TB. About half the staff was born in Mexico or Latin American. They tested all employees for TB and all American born tested negative. However, the majority of the foreign born tested positive. Think about that next time you eat out.

    Macy’s had their worst stock performance yesterday since 2008.

    Meanwhile, J.C. Penney’s performance has increased – despite Macy’s hot weather and tourist troubles. Amazing isn’t it?

    I put a link here at the Macy’s thread, have a read and enjoy!!!

    Macy’s stock was doing well up until after July 2015. You’ll see an incredibly steep drop off at that point. Go to this link which shows stock prices through out time, and click on “YEAR” to see a year’s worth of stock date for Macy’s.

    Meanwhile, Kohl’s is doing well in addition to J.C. Penney. So we know where Macy’s business is going.

    What happened to Macy’s is what will happen to Rupert’s Fox too. It takes time and grit determination by Vulgarians to spread the grassroots word and boycott Fox for their disloyalty to America. Fox is owned by an Australian, does he even have dual citizenship? I think maybe not because Murdoch would be double taxed. Will have to check this out about Rupert.

    Go Trump!!!!!! We’re in it for the long haul, but as Eric Trump said, imagine we’re only 4 months into his father’s candidacy. Wasn’t Donald the proud papa tho, listening to his sons speak!

    I was only a kid when General Eisenhower was elected president. But I recall the buttons my parents and our neighbors wore well. They read, “I Like Ike.”

    And America was a far different place then. People never heard from the Govt except at tax time. Husbands worked, wives stayed home or worked part time, and Ike liked to play golf.

    Actually, his biggest legislative accomplishment was the advent of our Interstate Highway system. Having seen the German Autobahn in person, he immediately understood its value in expanding commerce. (Can we even imagine where our nation would be today without it?)

    And, yes, knowing the importance of national borders from his time in Europe, Ike did remove people who were here illegally from our country. But the way I heard it, he only actually had to deport about 50,000, and the rest of the million or so who departed got the hint and left.

    Of course, this problem will be much more difficult to resolve now, as the numbers of people here illegally have swelled since we’ve allowed it to fester. And that’s not to mention the 40% or so of the total who flew in on tourist or education visas and melted into the crowd.

    But allowing this mass disregard for America’s sovereignty to continue isn’t an answer either. It’s just like the stupid trade deals we’ve entered into as the result of our politicians lying to us. We have to go back and make it right!

    I like that Trump is setting people straight on history. We have lived in bizarro world where there are no borders and no immigration enforcement for so long, that a huge percentage of the legal population has no clue that this is WRONG and terrible for them and for the country!

    So tired of the “but you can’t break up the families” hollow argument. Typical Democrat-speak, when confronted with irrefutable facts, ignore it and launch into an appeal for emotion.

    No families are breaking up. Each family can and will drag Grandma Esmeralda, Jorge Jr., Maria, and their 6 other anchor siblings back where they came from, driving their new American-taxpayer-funded Escalades back across the border instead of hoofing it on foot or hiding in the back of a truck like they did on entry. They’ll be returning with a lot of illegally obtained wealth, I don’t see how that’s a net loss for them.

    When Kasick and Jeb-ita were whining that you can’t physically deport 11M people (and they’re wrong, it’s way more than that), I do wish Trump would have had the chance to counter with “We won’t need to deport that many people, they’ll leave on their own.” Watch the heads explode for days afterward, just like when he said Mexico would pay for the Wall. Shut down the feeding trough for illegals in-country and cut the Western Union firehose blasting hundreds of billions of dollars out-of-country. Frank Luntz’s stupid little graphs would blow through the top of the TV screen (‘course that wouldn’t get aired on Fox, would it). Maybe Trump can get to that next time…
