Krauthammer on The Importance of There Being a Wall!

Krauthammer Gives Prager U Commentary: Build The Wall

 

Prager U: In a new video, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Charles Krauthammer explains why building the wall is the answer to illegal immigration.

Can America solve its illegal immigration problem both justly and humanely? Yes, but it requires first building a border wall. Washington Post columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Charles Krauthammer explains why.

“The wall/fence will, of course, be ugly,” Krauthammer said. “So are the barriers to keep truck bombs from driving into the White House. Something function has to supersede form.”

“Don’t tell me that this is our Berlin Wall. When you build a wall to keep people in, that’s a prison. When you build a wall to keep people out, that’s an expression of sovereignty,” Krauthammer explained.

President Trump, The Teacher at the Rallies!

Media don’t get it about Trump’s rallies

by Thomas Lifson  at  American Thinker:

..

In a must-read essay at RealClearPolitics.com, Adele Malpass explains how President Trump is “transforming” the midterms through an unprecedented flurry of campaign rallies in support of his party’s legislative candidates.  What’s remarkable to me is that so few journalists understand her points and need to have it laid out for them:

One of the new dynamics in this midterm election is President Trump reprising the rallies that helped fuel his victory in 2016.  While it’s common for presidents to campaign during midterms, arena-size crowds at rallies all over the country is a new phenomenon, and these events have proven to be a powerful way to communicate with, and excite, base voters.


Trump rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (via Wikimedia Commons).

This is hardly new, as anyone with a memory able to capture and retain what happened two years ago should know.

In 2016, Trump had the ability to fill arenas in multiple states on the same day, but some in the media played down the importance of rallies even after he won the election.  In response, White House aide Kellyanne Conway said in a post-election analysis: “The size of rallies matters.”  Recently, the president echoed that point in a tweet:

There are many benefits to these rallies, including offering the president an opportunity to respond to his critics and test out his base’s reaction to talking points he spontaneously offers.

Only at the very end of her article does Malpass mention what is to me the most potent benefit:

And each person who attends a rally is potentially a force multiplier as they recount the experience to their friends and relatives either directly or through social media.  It’s hard to measure this impact until votes are counted, but the size of the rallies is an indication of something potentially powerful afoot in the 2018 election dynamics.

Let me state this bluntly.  The rallies are designed to produce a corps of evangelists, people who will bend the ears of everyone they know about the wonderfulness of Trump and the evil of his critics.  Nearly all of the people motivated to ask for tickets and then stand in line for hours, and maybe not get in but wait outside watching the rally on big-screen TVs in the company of other Trump fans, were already going to support Trump.  The experience of sharing their convictions with a vast crowd of thousands of people just like them produces a form of euphoria that develops in like-minded crowds.

That euphoria translates into efforts to persuade family members to get out and vote, often as not filling out advance ballots and mailing them in.  This is why early voting by Republican-registered voters is breaking records.  Ten thousand attendees at a rally can translate into fifty thousand or more votes stirred by the evangelists.

Media people are professionally inclined to dismiss the importance of rallies precisely because they are invested in the notion that media are the principal drivers of voting behavior.  The idea that face-to-face conversations could drive more votes than airtime or print space that they produce is anathema.

The models used by pollsters have absolutely no way to accommodate the effects of rally evangelists.  But people who don’t ordinarily vote, or who choose candidates based on hair, appearance, or other silly factors – casual voters, in other words – are far more influenced by what friends and relatives say and believe than they are by what strangers in the media say or write.

Watch where Trump speaks.  We learned from the 2016 election that rallies are very strategically planned for places where evangelists will have the greatest probability of success.

I expect Republicans to overperform in this election, at least compared to media expectations.

A Biblical Note From Mark Waldeland

Hope for Late Bloomers: It’s never too late to start walking with God.
“Enoch walked with God during one of the darkest times in human history. And if Enoch was able to live a godly life at a time like that, then we can live godly lives as well.”

Hinderaker Reviews Trump Surge

TRUMP SURGES: IS IT THE ECONOMY OR KAVANAUGH?

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

Or both. Today’s Rasmussen Reports has President Trump at 51% approval, 48% disapproval. Equally significant is his so-called Approval Index, the difference between Strong Approval and Strong Disapproval. That index now stands at -1, with 38% strongly approving of the president. For purposes of comparison, Barack Obama’s Approval Index was -11 at the same point in his presidency. Obama rarely achieved an Approval Index as favorable as -1.

I have no doubt that President Trump is benefiting from the Brett Bounce. At the same time, the economy has to be a factor. The unemployment rate is a flawed statistic, but the lowest unemployment since 1969–3.7%–is obviously good news. President Trump’s is achieving, on the economy, what Barack Obama and other Democrats assured us was impossible a few years ago.

Just wait until voters start to notice how successful Trump has been in the realm of foreign policy!

Fascistic Democrats’ Drive to Destroy America’s Donald Era May Cause Leftist Trouble Makers BIG TIME!!!

DEMOCRATS:  BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR

by John Hinderaker   at PowerLine:

It is a sign of the times: the Democrats are delirious at the prospect of impeaching President Trump–not because he had an adulterous dalliance with a porn performer, which would have been considered a bad thing in the pre-Bill Clinton era, but rather because his payoff to her ostensibly constituted a campaign finance violation. For which no one is punished, ever, except Dinesh D’Souza.

Some Democrats, like Nancy Pelosi, are trying to keep a lid on the talk about impeachment until after November. She says impeaching Trump “isn’t a priority.” Not sure what that means; I think she is saying she will get to it eventually, assuming the Dems win a House majority. Which they probably will, according to most commentators.

Given that Democrats have been talking about impeaching Trump since before his inauguration, many don’t take the current hysteria seriously. But those who do consider what will happen if Trump is impeached: Mike Pence will be president. Instead of the connoisseur of porn performers, we will have the guy who won’t eat dinner alone with a woman other than his wife. (Everything that has happened in the last 25 years supports the wisdom of this rule, but that is a subject for another day.)

The thought should be sobering if you are a Democrat. An unapologetic, traditional conservative, dedicated to continuing the successful policies of the Trump administration, in the White House, and running for re-election? Bring it on!

Then again, we have the much more likely possibility that Trump isn’t convicted in the Senate. The chance of that is approximately zero. Then Trump runs for re-election in 2020, perhaps under this banner. “Individual 1” is how Trump was identified in certain documents related to the Cohen prosecution.

Democrats: pick your poison!

American Hero First Class = Donald J. Trump!

 

COMMENTARY: Everybody hates Donald Trump — or do they?

by Wayne Allyn Root  at reviewjournal:

What a two-week period for President Donald J. Trump.

They’re all rooting against him, thereby (by default) hoping America, the U.S. economy and middle-class job growth either fail or fall short. And it’s not just Democrats. It’s virtually everyone in power, in government, in the establishment.

Economists are rooting for Trump to fail. Democrats are rooting for Trump to fail. Ivy League eggheads are rooting for Trump to fail. The media are rooting for Trump to fail. Hollywood celebrities are rooting for Trump (and the economy) to fail.

The Deep State is rooting for Trump to fail (and be impeached). The whole D.C. Swamp — including the GOP establishment (think John McCain and Paul Ryan) are rooting for Trump to fail.

The entire welfare industrial complex — meaning anyone and everyone among the 110 million Americans on some form of welfare or government handout — is rooting for Trump to fail.

Everyone in the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fan club — i.e., those who hate America, hate capitalism and want everything for free: free college; free Medicaid for all; free welfare checks for everyone (universal income); free abortions for all; a free ride for every illegal alien (abolish ICE and open borders). I call it EIM — the Embrace Insanity Movement. They’re all rooting for Trump to fail.

But a funny thing is happening. Even though everyone seems to hate Trump … they don’t. In the midst of all this hate, Trump’s popularity is expanding and exploding upward.

First, the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll came out last week. Trump’s approval is the highest of his presidency. Among members of his own party, it’s the second-highest in history. Trump beats Reagan, Obama, JFK and Bill Clinton among voters from their own party.

Then the Gallup poll came out. Same result. Trump’s highest approval ever.

Then the American Barometer poll by HarrisX came out. Same result. Trump’s highest approval ever.
