    I don’t know if I’d call Brutus, Cassius, et al, good guys. They were no doubt motivated as much by thwarted personal ambition (as long as Caesar was there, they wouldn’t have their turn as the leading Roman) as they were for the republican ways and values Caesar was either destroying, or at least continuing a process of destruction that began before Caesar.

    Whatever the case, it’s an intriguing what-if had Caesar lived to carry out the Dacian and Parthian wars he was days from leaving Rome for when the Ides struck. The latter is especially intriguing; if Caesar had succeeded, and if his plans were more along the lines of permanent conquest of Parthia’s western lands, rather than a military victory and punitive terms enforced on the Parthians, who knows how history might have unfolded with a more Westernized Middle East? Perhaps Trajan’s war against Parthia proved that a lasting conquest was beyond Rome’s power, but then again, even Trajan was no Caesar on the battlefield.

    Indeed. Eliminating the Diversity Lottery Visas, drastically reducing refugee/asylum visas, and eliminating chain family migration (by abolishing the adult-married child and adult sibling categories)would knock the number down by at least a couple hundred thousand a year. That wouldn’t be enough, but it would be a good start towards an ideal end where the overall legal numbers are eventually capped somewhere between 200,000 to 400,000.

    Even some of the Chamber of Commerce-owned Republicans support some of these measures (though they’d probably like to reallocate any cut visas from one category to another, with the result being no decrease).

In short, it will be the final nails in the demographic coffin of conservatism.

    Agreed, except for the part about the flood being comprised of more illegal aliens than legal immigrants. While the influx of illegal aliens has been huge, the legal immigrant wave has been larger. Since 1965 we’ve admitted tens of millions of legal immigrants, and it continues today at over one million each year. Even taking anchor babies into consideration, I think mass legal immigration has been and will continue to be much more of a demographic threat, as most hold liberal views and favor the Democrats (and they don’t have to break the law to vote). There is no reason to expect that to change while the influx remains so large.

    Mair is a total leftist on immigration, as she supports unending mass immigration. I’ve seen her make the argument that the conservative position on immigration, and the view held by most Republicans on immigration - that it should be reduced - is really a liberal view because it’s held by labor unions and some population control groups.

    It seems not to have occurred to Mair that the big labor unions have largely abandoned this position and have jumped on board the ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ bandwagon, no doubt because they know it’s a demographic boon to the Democrats and doom for the GOP.

    It has also apparently never crossed Mair’s mind that in supporting perpetually high levels of immigration she is aligned with pretty much the entire modern political and cultural Left! If she applied the same attempt to paint immigration reduction as a liberal view via guilt-by-tenuous-association, then how does she reconcile the overwhelming Leftist support for her own views on immigration?

    Trump has no doubt committed some mind boggling unforced errors, and has allowed himself to be baited by the media/Democrats several times into going off message. Perhaps it will turn out that he was the weakest candidate against Hillary.

    But I don’t buy for a second that he’s the only one who was capable of losing to her. National demographic trends (fueled mostly by decades of mass Democrat-importing immigration) favor the Democrats. She, or any Democrat, probably has a floor in the mid-40s nationally, and that floor is rising.

    We can’t know for sure how Hillary, the Democrats, and their media allies would have conducted a campaign against a GOP nominee other than Trump. We can’t know how effective it would have been. Maybe with the unlikeable, dishonest, corrupt Hillary at the top of the ticket it wouldn’t have worked well enough for them. Or maybe it would have. They sure did a good job trashing Romney, who now of course is held up by the same Left as a model of what a Republican should be.

    Also, it’s not like the other Republicans had a huge lead over Hillary in the head-to-head matchups before Trump won the nomination. Well, Kasich had a large lead as he was so fond of telling us, but part of that was surely due to the fact that none of the Left’s guns had been set on him yet. Rubio was up by 3-4 points if I remember correctly. Jeb was either even or within a point up or down. Cruz had fallen behind like Trump, though not by as large a margin.

    Thanks largely to mass immigration, the days of easy GOP wins and landslides are over. It’s only going to get more difficult from here on out, which is why Hillary would likely win reelection in 2020 if she gets elected this year.

    And immigration too. Of course Holt didn’t bring it up, but Trump could have brought it more into the discussion of the economy and wages.

    Also, when Trump recently made the very obvious, common sense statement that no foreigner has a right of immigration to the United States, Hillary’s official Twitter page responded with “We disagree”, which can only be taken as meaning Hillary things foreigners do have a right to immigrate, which is a radical, extreme view if ever there was one.

    Combine that with Hillary’s radical support for increasing Syrian refugees by 500%, plus her support for massively increasing overall legal immigration, and her announcement that the only way her administration would deport an illegal alien is if they murder or rape someone, and Trump has lots of easy targets on immigration. On all of these points Hillary is pushing positions that most Americans oppose, but of course the media will not report that. And there is no chance at all that a question will make it through that is crafted to make Hillary explain her radical positions, and there is no chance that a moderator will put a follow-up question to Hillary along those lines. So Trump will have to make these points and put her on the defensive about them. They’d be more effective, I think, than talking about building the beautiful wall and making Mexico pay for it.

    I just don’t think Trump can finesse an attack with regards to Bill Clinton’s predatory nature to show Hillary as an enabler. It’s a high risk strategy, with questionable reward.

    The thing about Karl Rove is that he a supporter of the mass immigration that has helped turn Virginia from a reliably and solidly red state to (at best) a purple state. At least I think he is; he worked for Bush who is about as clueless on immigration as any Republican. One of the reasons the static blue states you mention are pretty much permanently blue now is because of this now decades-long era of Democrat-importing mass immigration.

    Michigan, Wisconsin, and Ohio do offer opportunity, but mostly by increasing the share of the white vote in those states. The dilemma facing the GOP with regards to whites is that any attempt to get more of their vote will be demonized as racist and white nationalist. And while that may have no impact on poor and working class whites, who are used to be trashed by culture and ignored by politicians, it does seems to have an impact on upper-scale, suburban whites. They probably can’t explain exactly why it’s ‘racist’ or ‘white nationalist’, but they’ve heard it repeatedly in the press and media and so they think it must be true.

    Anyway, I hope you’re right, I really do. Recapturing Virginia this year could be big, and to win a state that hasn’t gone GOP since 1984 in Wisconsin, or 1988 in Michigan would be huge.

    Mass immigration policies are stupid of course, but on another level they are not. If your goal is to transform the demographics of a traditionally center-right nation so that it become a center-left, and then just left nation, then it makes perfect sense. It’s actually quite an intelligent plan if the goal is pure political power with no regard for the well being of the nation. It’s also quite an obvious plan, which makes GOP acquiescence to (or in some cases outright support for) it stand as proof that they truly are the stupid party.

    If Trump wins maybe this wave and era of mass immigration will finally come to an end. It’s doubtful how much good legislation he could get passed with the Senate likely to flip to the Democrats, or with a slim Republican majority that is not Graham-Flake-McCain proof. One can imagine an excellent reform bill written by Senator Sessions that ends chain migration, eliminates the Diversity Lottery visas, cuts back on (or at least allows no increase) in H1B visas, and reduces refugee/asylum visas...only to see it be defeated in the Senate.

    But on this issue of refugees, there is a lot that a President Trump can do. It seems that the annual level is set by the President, with Congress doing nothing more than rubber-stamping it, though they can object and at least use the power of the purse in opposition. So a President Trump could (and should) drastically reduce the number of refugees we admit. Would Paul Ryan and Chuck Schumer shut down the government to force Trump to admit more refugees? That seems unlikely, even for those two immigration leftists.

    The general public is probably still largely ignorant of Hillary’s true position on immigration. While many Americans know that Hillary supports an insane 500% increase in Syrian refugee admissions, I’d bet most don’t know that she also supports a massive increase in overall legal immigration.

    Anyone who supported the Gang of Eight bill, or anything like it, supports doubling legal immigration to over two million per year. Americans overwhelmingly oppose increasing legal immigration, but Democrats have never really been made to pay for being so out of touch with Americans and holding such extreme views. Unfortunately this is due largely to the GOP elite agreeing with the Democrats in wanting to increase the annual inflow of future Democrats, and so Americans have not been presented with a choice until (maybe) now. Trump has been a welcome change on immigration from Bush, McCain, and Romney, but even he hasn’t really hammered Hillary on holding views on increasing legal immigration that are so opposed to what Americans favor. Well, to be fair, he has hit her hard on the Syrian refugees, but not on overall legal immigration.

    That’s definitely true about polls. But what I’m saying is that in 2012 many were saying the polls were deliberately skewed to show an Obama lead when Romney was really ahead. The intent, it was said, was to create an air of an inevitable Obama victory, and therefore suppress support for Romney.

    As it turned out, the polls showing Obama with a modest but decisive lead were correct. Or I suppose it’s possible that the polls were indeed skewed, and they had the desired effect of influencing the outcome, but that seems unlikely.

    I hope you’re right. The United States will be, in many way, done if Hillary is elected, especially considering she’d probably have a Democratic Senate as well, plus a weakened GOP House with immigration leftist Paul Ryan in charge and eager to help her complete the demographic destruction of conservatism.

    But the polls have shifted from where they were two weeks ago, and many here were pointing to them then as if they were of legitimate predictive value. Trump is down, and Hillary has risen. She’s near, at, or above 50% in several of them now. It seems unlikely that the polls were legitimate 2-3 weeks ago, but now they’re garbage. Surely you remember the whole ‘un-skewed’ poll stuff from last time don’t you, when some were the polls were skewed to prop up Obama, but that turned out not to be the case. It sounds like the same thing may be happening again this time.

    I hope that it’s bias and people simply not paying attention yet. But to the extent it’s the latter, then once they start paying attention why shouldn’t we expect them to be influenced by the former as some others clearly have been over the last week? The mainstream media isn’t as powerful as it used to be, but the constant, uniform, and maliciously negative coverage of Trump does have an impact on the voting public.

    It was very disappointing that Ann Coulter, who was the opposing guest with Mair on the show in which I heard her make this idiotic and absurd argument, didn’t counter with this rather obvious rejoinder. She didn’t really respond at all.

    But anyway, the point is that Mair is about as bad as it gets on immigration, so she’d hate Trump even if Trump were capable of running in a disciplined fashion and could avoid shooting himself in the foot and walking into obvious traps.

    Seems like a similar thing as the ‘un-skewed’ polls from 2012, which of course turned out not to be skewed.
