If President Trump had pledged to facilitate illegal immigration, undermine the wages of the most vulnerable Americans, and to perpetuate a system rife with exploitation, it's unlikely he would have won his seat in the Oval Office. Now that is precisely what he is doing.
Democrats have all but endorsed open borders this year. Law-abiding American taxpayers might have second thoughts.
In December 2016, the president-elect declared the “F-35 program and cost is out of control.” He was right then and he’s right now.
Anyone truly concerned about the plight of working-class Americans needs to unite, not around The Communist Manifesto, but the idea that our sons, daughters, and neighbors deserve a fair playing field to earn a living and reach their full potential.
The world is shifting eastwards as the Asian Pivot is finally taking place, and Europe has to define its place in this new world.
Since we are unlikely to prevail on the president to prepare an alternative to a ruling class that is ready to meld with the Sandersistas, it behooves conservatives to put together our own plans and lists of people to implement them.
But the scourge of illegal immigration will never be completely eliminated unless both the craven politicians and the unscrupulous businessmen who benefit from it are brought to justice.

Whichever country conquers space first will write the destiny of the rest of us on Earth for this century. Clearly, the House Democrats don’t care. They want us to lose to the Red Chinese because that would be a victory for them over “that man” in the White House.
The state is coming after your children and politeness, fairness, and compromise are all demanded of you, but not of them. Is the American conservative tiger made of paper? Or is it real? Spain’s history in the 20th century offers a vital lesson.
Through several administrations, the United States has bent at the knee to Communists in China. We should not be surprised when the United Kingdom compromises with them.
