“In California, we all know people who have bailed out for places where the taxes are low, regulations are light and the cost of living reasonable. But the evidence here is not just anecdotal.
In a recent piece in the Washington Times, economist Stephen Moore presents an amazing statistic: “Of the 10 blue states that Hillary Clinton won by the largest percentage margins — California, Massachusetts, Vermont, Hawaii, Maryland, New York, Illinois, Rhode Island, New Jersey and Connecticut — every single one of them lost domestic migration (excluding immigration) over the last 10 years (2004-14).”
But here’s the kicker: The exact opposite is true in those states that supported Donald Trump by the largest margin. Those states – including Wyoming, West Virginia, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Dakota, and Idaho — saw net domestic in-migration.
So what are the characteristics of those Hillary-supporting states that are bleeding productive citizens? Here, Moore doesn’t mince words: “They are the loser states. They are all progressive. High tax rates. High welfare benefits. Heavy regulation. Environmental extremism. Super minimum wages. Most outlaw energy drilling. The whole left-wing playbook is on display in the Hillary states. And people are leaving in droves.” here… via Ace
The number of sanctuary cities who will refuse to comply with federal law has grown to 18.
Alright then lets play along. All of the states who don’t want sanctuary cities can post notification in newspapers and other media outlets that law enforcement will continue to enforce federal law and deport illegals that get arrested, the only way to avoid this is to move to a sanctuary city before an arrest can be made.
If the liberal governors and mayors of these cities can hold office, then the people who elected them can live with the consequences.
Ignore them snubbing their noses at federal law, let them reap what the sow.
You don’t get to be all unicorns and glitter in this world, it’s a nasty, mean, dog eat dog world out there. Wanting the US to be a sovereign nation of laws should be embraced not denigrated as Obama just did. His description about nationalism being dangerous explains his eight years in office.
When you see anti-Trump protesters waving flags from other countries and burning American flags you understand these people want the benefits of American life without the pesky patriotism, which is what Obama is saying.
Obama: We have to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism or ethnic identity or tribalism that is built around an us and a them. And I will never apologize for saying that the future of humanity and the future of the world is going to be defined by what we have in common as opposed to those things that separate us and ultimately lead us into conflict.
Illegal aliens = Drugs, crime, and a burden on community services, all on the taxpayers dime and well being Refugees = Drugs, crime, potential terrorism, and a burden on community services, all on the taxpayers dime and well being How can thinking these things are not good = “Dangerous”?
Time to explain to these cities what federal funding means. Obama did it:
Last month, Obama officials sent a letter to Florida’s Medicaid agency, warning that it may not reauthorize $2.2 billion in unrelated Medicaid funding unless the state agrees to expand Obamacare. These actions make the administration’s priorities crystal clear: expanding welfare for able-bodied adults is more important than funding for hospitals treating poor children, seniors and individuals with disabilities.
What Obama did was blackmail, withholding funds from sanctuary cities is following the law…..period. These lefty politicians want a fight, Trump needs to take the gloves off. h/t Weasel Zippers for the image
The fact that natural conservatives have been given the name “Alt-Right” by the people who ain’t, is all you need to know about American politics in 2016. Democrats and their lap dog media need a name for the enemy. “Deplorable” is a chuckle for intellectually elite, but has a negative connotation when coming from, say, Megan Kelly.
“Tea Party Types” is fine for the media but when Republicans started campaigning as Tea Party candidates the lines got fuzzy. Ted Cruz really was a Tea Party candidate, where as Mitch McConnell laughably was not, yet he still did his best to convince Republican voters he held the same convictions as Cruz.
The old standard “Right Leaning Republican” went out the window years ago because the line from dead zero to far right nut job had expanded due to the betrayal of voters by their elected leaders. You can’t be “right leaning” when the guy you put in office climbs in bed with Democrats, your true north starts moving right quickly.
So Alt-Right it is, even if you read that it assumes racism. My question would be, what in the hell isn’t racism anymore? The grievance industry has labeled beige band-aids racist. If your white and not a liberal, walking down the street apparently makes you a racist. If you read wiki’s description:
They got the first part right, but then someone edited/associated it with white supremacy. You see…we can’t win the argument because the label has already been stamped…so be it. If you want to label me here is what you can hang your hat on, small government, fiscal responsibility, anti-globalist, anti-“Illegal” immigration, and anti-political correctness. If your’e gay be gay, black be black, muslim be muslim, mexican be mexican, but you can’t be militant about it. If you are allowed into the U.S., assimilate.
The problem is it’s to late, progressive liberals have already opened Pandora’s Box, Black Lives Matter knows it can meet in the White House, Muslims know they are oppressed because, you know, terrorists, mexicans know they can cross the border illegally and be called Dreamers instead of criminals. If being upset about this makes me a racist bigot, or politically in-correct then I have no where to run….it is what it is….Alt-Right.
Hillary is slinging the term around like a dead cat lately clobbering her base in the head so it will sink in that republican voters are nothing short of the KKK or a new Nazi party. You see now that she has the enemy labeled she can pigeon hole them. Alt Right isn’t right of center, it doesn’t encompass Obama’s RHINO pals and #nevertrumpsters, it put’s us in her basket of deplorables without actually insulting us in her stump speeches. If she used the term Islamic Terrorism with as much disdain as she uses Alt-Right, terrorists might actually have something to worry about.
The media now has a name it can run with. They can tag Trump voters with Alt-Right and it doesn’t matter whether these people agree on Trump or not. The media thinks all Trump voters just backed their trucks out of the trailer court, grabbed a cold pack of beer and smokes then headed to the Trump rally. The media is not concerned with the fact that some of the Alt-Right are successful business people who just want strong leaders that won’t take a hand job from Nancy Pelosi for a high speed rail vote.
The line going right has expanded, it’s taken in the people who voted Romney/Ryan with the people who just grabbed the cold pack, we had no choice. The Mitch McConnells and Jon Boeners of the GOP started this, now it’s time to finish it, even if it means Trump.
So grab your buddies from the trailer court, the high rise office, the summer home, or wherever and be “Alt-Right”, it’s OK, the democrats have been sticking together for decades, maybe it’s high time we learned from their lesson tactics.
Hillary/Obama/Democrats want another half million refugees to go along with the 10,000 already here, not to mention the hundreds of thousands crossing the border illegally from Mexico to Somalia, what could possibly go wrong? Well….picture this on every Main Street in America.
Still think globalism is the answer? Ask an Parisian.
