What Trump's Wall Says To The World

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

“Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,” wrote poet Robert Frost in the opening line of “Mending Walls.”

And on the American left there is something like revulsion at the idea of the “beautiful wall” President Trump intends to build along the 1,900-mile border between the U.S. and Mexico.

The opposition’s arguments are usually rooted in economics or practicality. The wall is unnecessary. It will not stop people from coming illegally. It costs too much.

Yet something deeper is afoot here. The idea of a permanent barrier between our countries goes to the heart of the divide between our two Americas on the most fundamental of questions.

Who are we? What is a nation? What does America stand for?

Those desperate to see the wall built, illegal immigration halted, and those here illegally deported, see the country they grew up in as dying, disappearing, with something strange and foreign taking its place.

It is not only that illegal migrants take jobs from Americans, that they commit crimes, or that so many require subsidized food, welfare, housing, education and health care. It is that they are changing our country. They are changing who we are.

Two decades ago, the Old Right and the neocons engaged in a ferocious debate over what America was and is.

Were we from the beginning a new, unique, separate and identifiable people like the British, French and Germans?

Or was America a new kind of nation, an ideological nation, an invented nation, united by an acceptance of the ideas and ideals of Jefferson, Madison, Lincoln and Dr. King?

The Old Right contended that America existed even before the Revolution, and that this new nation, this new people, wrote its own birth certificate, the Constitution. Before Washington, Madison and Hamilton ever went to Philadelphia, America existed.

What forced the premature birth of the nation — was the Revolution.

We did not become a new nation because we embraced Jefferson’s notion about all men being “created equal.” We became a new people from our familial break with the Mother Country, described in the declaration as a severing of ties with our “brethren” across the sea who no longer deserved our loyalty or love.

The United States came into being in 1789. The Constitution created the government, the state. But the country already existed.

When the Irish came in the mid-19th century to escape the famine and the Germans to escape Bismarck’s Prussia, and the Italians, Jews, Poles, Greeks, Slovaks came to Ellis Island, they were foreigners who became citizens, and then, after a time, Americans.

Not until decades after the Great Migration of 1890-1920, with the common trials of the Depression, World War II and Cold War, were we truly forged again into one united nation and people.

By 1960, almost all of us shared the same heroes and holidays, spoke the same language and cherished the same culture.

What those with memories of that America see happening today is the disintegration of our nation of yesterday. The savagery of our politics, exemplified in the last election, testifies to how Americans are coming to detest one another as much as the Valley Forge generation came to detest the British from whom they broke free.

In 1960, we were a Western Christian country. Ninety percent of our people traced their roots to Europe. Ninety percent bore some connection to the Christian faith. To the tens of millions for whom Trump appeals, what the wall represents is our last chance to preserve that nation and people.

To many on the cosmopolitan left, ethnic or national identity is not only not worth fighting for, it is not even worth preserving. It is a form of atavistic tribalism or racism.

The Trump wall then touches on the great struggle of our age.

Given that 80 percent of all people of color vote Democratic, neither the Trump movement nor the Republican Party can survive the Third Worldization of the United States now written in the cards.

Moreover, with the disintegration of the nation we are seeing, and with talk of the breakup of states like Texas and secession of states like California, how do we survive as one nation and people?

Old Europe never knew mass immigration until the 20th century.

Now, across Europe, center-left and center-right parties are facing massive defections because they are perceived as incapable of coping with the existential threat of the age — the overrunning of the continent from Africa and the Middle East.

President Trump’s wall is a statement to the world: This is our country. We decide who comes here. And we will defend our borders.

The crisis of our time is not that some Americans are saying this, but that so many are too paralyzed to say it, or do not care, or embrace what is happening to their country.

Aren't the Mexicans building a wall on their southern border?  Thought I read that somewhere.

Not all illegals in America are Mexicans.

"Moreover, with the disintegration of the nation we are seeing, and with talk of the breakup of states like Texas and secession of states like California, how do we survive as one nation and people?"

Is this "disintegration" by design? Is that what globalists want? Because that what is happening in Europe.

And that's what many people (many not Americans) want for the US as well. The NWO. That's the final goal.

Who benefits from it? Not the average person (citizen or migrant).

Only the master manipulators benefit from it: Banks, large corporations and of course, career politicians (and their appointees). The 1%.

Americans for America are the minority now and obviously not part of that 1%. Except for Trump, maybe...

Breakup weakens strong states like the US, so it benefits the globalists in the short term.  But it can work against them in the long term.  Barriers to the flow of capital, goods, and people are multiplied, and (except for urbanized city-states like Singapore) the smaller states carved out of bigger ones can be more homogeneous, more tightly knit, and thus more hostile to the globalist project.

People whose overriding concern is efficient trade and/or bringing other lands and the peoples who live there under their control always end up favoring merging smaller units into bigger ones where the rules are the same everywhere and an elite can exercise power far beyond where their natural base of support lives, works, and votes.

Mr Trump loves his country this is what's all about. 

They hate Mr Putin because he loves his country too.

Every leader on the world must start putting its country and its  people first. Time to end corruption.

The other thing they dispise about Trump and Putin is that they are Men. Unashamed role models of manliness. This gets the leftys all unhinged.

Todays 'immigrants' are not the same as yesterdays immigrants.

They have much lower IQs and all that that involves: massive crime, enormous breeding rates, unemployable for anything but the most basic tasks, crude religious intolerance of the very culture that they come to, etc.

They have a much lower work ethic, they are here to take, not make.

The boat is simply full. The whole matter is just not sustainable withouy complete collapse of the society we know and care for. Just look at he countries or origin of these 3rd worlders, that's really all you need to know. Is that what we want to become?

"building a wall between the Mexico and Guatemala is a possibility"

And what did Obama do before he moved into his new mansion? Build a wall around it.

What surrounds the typical limousine leftist's mansions? A wall, of course.

It's revealing that we don't see the leftists / Zionists criticizing Israel's very real wall.

Also revealing is that leftists / Zionists support Israeli immigration laws which specify Jews Only, while those same types demand massive 3rd world immigration into the US & Europe.

They're the ones who organized the world's melanin against us, taught them to hate us, and weaponized them for use in their own struggle against us.  Without them, melanin wouldn't be a problem.  To think that at the turn of the 20th Century, whites were a third of the global population and took for granted that the rest would fade into history: swamped by explosive Western population growth, colonization, and so on.

The German goyim started arriving after their jewish masters lost the revolutions of 1848.  It had nothing to do with Bismark.  Perhaps there were some draft dodgers in 1866-1870 but I don't think it was significant.

Buchanon also fails to mention all the German Americans rounded up into concentration camps in WWI and WWII.  In the WWI the propaganda against Germans reached such a fever that they started going after German brewers across the midwest.  When the Armistice was signed in 1918 the Germans were kept in concentration camps until after Versailles, and the propaganda war against  the German brewers (Schlitz, Pabst, Miller, etc) continued and it was one of the big reason prohibition was instituted in 1919 => to bash germans.

Buchanon is probably the most precient and insightful political commentator of the last 30 years.

Blah blah blah. Where's the outrage over the continual bombing by the American people of the Middle East?

It's like some guy breaking into a neighbor's house and killing some of the occupants, and then getting outraged when the swat team shows up at his own house and kicks the door in.

You don't like someone invading your house? Then stay the fuck out of their house. Very simple logic. It seems to go right over most American's heads, though.

Truth and Justice must rule alone, but the Lord works in mysterious ways and Arabic Islam is the clans, culture, and mores of Sodom and Gomorrah: the same pedophilia, homosexuality, and misogyny.

"Pedophilia, homosexuality, and misogyny"....

Those first 2 sound a lot like the United States!!

I've been saying this for years: There has always been 2 TARGETS of the Globalists: The Muslims and the American people.

After we build the wall we need to start on our northern border.  If the southern border wall is impenatrable, determined people will find a way around.  Linked below is a UAL flight from Mexico City to Vancouver costing $202.38.  B.C. pot growers have had little trouble getting their product to market in the U.S. via the unprotected backroads and trails into Washington State.  Now that pot is legal in Washington, the smugglers can switch from pot to people.

Instead of walls, I'd rather the laws already on the books were enforced, with stiffer penalties for hiring people in this country illegally.  Without all of the Latinos to work in the fields, farmers would have to pay enough to get lazy people off their asses.  Salads, restaurant meals, roofing and auto body work would cost more, but that's the price we'd have to pay.

I'd rather have enforced our laws and use death as a deterrent instead of letting these criminals in to kill and rape Americans. But Whites are too afraid to say that kind of thing today. They all have to be nice like Barney the Dinosaur.

The world has changed, so must America. For a few hundred years humans migrated to a better place and melted in. They left their old shit back there. 

When migrants come and wave their nation's old flags, and beat the crap out of your kids waving the American flag it is not called immigration...it is called invasion.

the Wall will stop very small number of illegal, i was watching interview yesterday with 20-30 illegal immigrants. They were asked how they have ended in USA.

Only one of them cross the border line in Texas, everybody else either get a business visa, or expired working permit, or get on boat or was hiding in truck, or bought passport, apparently you can buy valid American passport for 2500$

Little Pattie Buchanan was literally raised on alkie Joe McCarthy's knee. Anacostia? Gonzaga Mafia?

McCarthy was used as Rome's catspaw to get us to kill and die protecting their colonial false-elite in their Roman Catholic colony of Vietnam-precursor Korea, and to stop the WW2 post-mortem on Rome's finance of Hitler and Nazism through the Dulles brothers and Prescott Bush.

Was Tail-gunner Joe an alkie who never reproduced because he was molested by Roman Catholic priests or a victim of the unredeemed molested by Roman Catholic priests?

Was McCarthy an alkie because he was self-medicating, having become a pedophile or homosexual because he never overcame having been molested? 

Roman Catholic Pat Buchanan also has yet to reproduce or adopt.

Pat dodged Vietnam because he was working for those who sent us there, one of JFK's assassins, homosexual closet-queen and Vatican banker Rockefeller/Bush-lieutenant Richard Nixon, who, by killing our president six weeks after he'd ordered us out with 120 dead, sent 58,000 more of us to kill and die in Vietnam for the five percent Roman Catholic satanic colonial ruling false-elite which owned 95% of Vietnam's wealth.

When is the "sage" Pat Buchanan going to come clean; or is he, in fact, just an undercover Jesuit agent like the CIA's former chief, Brennan.

There was no famine in Ireland. Listen to the suppressed Sinead O'Connor or read "Trinity," by Leon Uris. Buchanan's referring to that hoax, pretending of its "legitimacy" is no less offensive than our great president's mention of the WTC, and his failing to point out Bush and Cheney did it with Mossad and the JFK-assassinating Roman Catholic CIA/FBI.

In collusion with the English Ascendancy's need to depopulate their estates following the Agricultural Revolution's advent in Ireland and diminished need for labor, the Roman Catholic Church needed a counterweight to Protestant WASP success in America's having become a global threat to the Anti-Christ - we explicitly came here in covenant with God to escape - despite Rome's assassination of Meriwether Lewis on the Natchez Trace.

Therefore, together they sold Ireland's produce to Europe to starve out the Irish people, forcing them to become cannon-fodder in Rome's "Civil War" military conquest of Protestant, God-fearing America (The Cross of St. Andrew on the CBF Black and White Protestants died under, stands for "Protestantism Overseas"). One in five fighting in the Union Army was "off the boat" from the Emerald Isle and Rome's logo, the Fasces, antithetical to America, was nailed to the front wall of the U.S. House soon after Roman Catholics assassinated President Lincoln for his charitable orders to Grant at Appomattox six days earlier.

Rome's pedophile priests' queering the Irish had the tendency to turn them into great killers, just like all the murderous illegals created by priestly pedophilia impelled across the southern border by the same Anti-Christ, fleeing Latin America's wall-to-wall brothels and slums Rome (the Anti-Christ, NWO, Deep State, etc.) wants in America, God's "New Israel," holy and righteous. 

All the problems now confronting us as a Nation, God's prophesied "Promised Land," are due to attacks and subterfuges by the Anti-Christ we came here to escape emanating from its bankers' and assassins' Fifth Column Beast of (((Gog))) and Babylon, as prophesied: One of which is Rome's (NWO's, Bilderberg's, Black Aristocracy's, Deep State's, Organized Crime's) openly published satanic stratagem  to promote and protect an organized army of pawns for invasion and conquest made up of Hispanic Roman Catholic illegal immigrants. Gee, wonder why Pat doesn't point it out. He lives in D.C. and can read it at the Library of Congress or at his Roman Catholic cathedral library.

Born of the Founders' "Whiggism": The above analysis by one sworn to The Oath whose family, with millions of others', built Our Nation having by grace won America in mortal combat in covenant with God Almighty, should be shared by all who would be true Patriot Americans.

We are One People under the One God with One Creed: our credal civil religion whose three tenets are yet openly enshrined on The Great Seal of the Covenant.

Build the Wall and excise from Our Land: Satan's Anti-Christ false-Jew ZioTalmud/Caesaropapist/Masonic Christ-killing Fifth Column, with full expropriations and hangings at Ft. McNair where appropriate, following treason trials and convictions.

Death for Treason and may God bless America and protect President Trump - the final Trump of the Apocalypse, praise God.

Communism is one of Rome's "controlled opposition" factions, just like the Talmud Khazar false-Jews they hired to crucify God Incarnate on Golgotha. Rome created Marxism through Marx's Rothschild cousin that True Israel, America be destroyed fighting it.

We didn't die fighting "communists" in Korea and Vietnam, we died fighting those who didn't want to be Rome's slaves or have Rome's priests queer their kids anymore.

What the wall says to me is that we Americans have something worth having.  Many of us feel that way.

Other folks - mainly self-loathing, America-loathing leftist types, are OK with whoring America out.  They hope to gain political control by this means.

I'm hoping Donald Trump rams it up their asses very, very hard for 8 years.

Remember boy's, girls and those unsure. Almost every Law / Act passed in the last 100 years to 'protect us' have been used against us. I will cite the Civil Asset confiscation but there are hundreds if not thousands. I imagine the Wall won't be any different.

By eliminating all the freebies for illegal immigrants would probably reduce the numbers by 90 percent. Wall or no Wall if the incentives remain they will still come, under, around or over the Wall.

And remember, Walls that keep people out,,,, also keep people in.

On the state Republican site here in Arizona there are some saying that they don't want the wall but they won't say why. The reasons they don't want it are obvious, from the 'cosmopolitan left' reasons stated above to cheap labor pimping, to being ethnically Mexican who are sympatico to their homies, the hell with the costs in blood and treasure. Thse cosmopolitan lefties usually have no experience living around the people-of-color that they are so hot to trot for, and they have some reason to dislike their own racial or ethnic identity. There is no room for compromise. Fuck their petulance or self interests. I didn't sign up to live in Aztlan.

Get rid of that slave culture holiday, Martin Luther King day.  King was a plagiarist and an adulterer.  We should not be celebrating him.  Change Columbus day to Viking day.  The Vikings were the first Europeans to discover America.  Keep in mind that the US was founded by white European men who moved from Europe because they disliked Europe.  Celebrating slave culture or the defeated indigenous people is just stupid.

What message does a wall say? We are tired of 3rd world  parasites and criminals taking advantage of our once prosperous nations. Tired of pathetic governments deciding which laws to enforce and which to ignore. Absolutely disgusted with every "culture" being protected and promoted other than our own.

If you dont like it, move to a 3rd world shithole till reality sinks in!

I hope the Trump Administration reads Zero Hedge.

That said, read this:

Amoung the many threats to America like the dying George Soros, the dying Main Stream Media, the dying Presidents (the Bushes, Clintons, and Obama), Marxist third worldization, the globalization mantra, and Hollyweird snowflakes, we all know America has a DRUG addiction.

Whether legal or illegal, whether it is supplied by the Pfizer Pharm, CIA heroin from Afghanistan, Cocaine from Mexican drug cartels, legalizing Marijuana, cocktails in Vegas, or even mass mind control / indoctrination through media, social media and public education, America is addicted to DRUGS of any definition.

If the Trump administration is serious about Making America Great Again, it's gong to have to Make America boring again. That is, if being drug addicted was ever fun.


1. Shut down the fucking Big Pharma Business. We don't need 80 year old guys in Vegas with black fucking hair and hard-ons fixing their glasses to ogle young sluts.

2. Shut down the fucking CIA. We don't need heroin on our streets, or heroin cash funding a black budget of a rouge and dangerous cabal of spooks.

3. Shut down the fucking Mexican Drug Cartels. We don't need a corrupt Mexican government funded by drug money, beheadings of innocent Mexicans, or millions of Mexicans and Central Americans fleeing the carnage and risking their lives to cross our border. The Mexican drug cartels must be designated as Terror organizations. Send in the fucking U.S. Army if the Mexicans can't handle them. If America is going to be great again, we need cheap (safe) Mexican vacations back.

4. Legalize fucking Marijuana across the entire country. The fucking Universe, the planet, people, animals, plants, toe-nails, water molecules and even atomic sub particles look really, really fucking great when one is very, very high on Pot. Marijuana will cure left-wing activists of their violent fanatsies and stimulate the cookie industry, bigley.

5. Lastly, and most bigely, shut down the fucking Department of Education and federal funding of the fucking Socialist, Marxist, and Progressive ideologies in the American University system. Funding the enemy's indoctrination of its Social Justice Snowflake System is just plain fucking stupid. Designate those ideologies as Terror organizations. Because they do cause terror of the MIND of the youth and in the future drug addicted leaders of America. Look what fucking Zbigniew Brzezinski, Saul Alinsky, Monica Lewinski did to the Clintons. Seriously, it's worse than a fucking Stephen King novel.

With these changes, we will Make America Great Again when drug addiction and mind control are replaced with a healthy and free thinking American people.
