WSJ: ‘Demographic Shift’ Helping to
Replace Trump’s Base of Support

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 1/4/2020 8:53:50 AM

A rapid “demographic shift” is helping to replace President Donald Trump’s base of white working-class voters with Democrat supporters, the Wall Street Journal reports. A report by the Wall Street Journal details how a “demographic shift” — with the help of more than 1.2 million legal immigrants being admitted to the United States every year — is changing the American electorate in favor of Democrats. Trump’s white working-class base of support, the Journal notes, is expected to decline in population by about 2.3 percent in time for the 2020 presidential election.

This is the same demographic shift the WSJ has been demanding for decades via its insistence on open borders. Good for the bottom line, don't you know; classic American short-sightedness caused by CEOs overdosing on MBA.

I predict the big shock of the next election will be the Black and Hispanic vote for Trump. Once you get them on board the dims won't easily get them back.

Thank that evil one Ted Kennedy for slipping in this mass immigration from the third world, and we haven't been doing anything to stop it in the last 60 years or so as they take over the country and destroy it. We really do need to just STOP all immigration legal, or illegal, for a few decades at least.

I have heard from the left wing media, like the WSJ, for 50 years that the demographics were changing, and that the Republicans would never get elected again---but Republicans do continue to get elected. Like everything else the media says, it is all lies and sparkle, bull from the horn.

One major problem, WSJ: there is no assurance that the changing demographic cannot or will not vote in the interest of freedom. That nagging, little human imperative has been around for millennia. Many of the demographic you refer to are waking up. I wouldn’t count on the same old socialist tripe to carry as much weight as it once did.

Well for decades the Congressional liberal Democrats have been designing what the immigration laws would be, including what classes of legal immigrants could come into the USA, and have been sabotaging the effective enforcement of the immigration laws so that as many illegal aliens as possible could get into the USA and stay, with the vast majority of those classes of aliens being poor, uneducated, unskilled, and socialist oriented people from all over the world, knowing that most who decide to vote, were bound to be leftist and liberal Democrat supporters. While all that has been going on, before the Trump era, the establishment Republicans simply ignored the fact that the Democrats were obviously manipulating the immigration laws to their long-term political benefit by manufacturing millions of New Democrat socialist foreign born voters, as long as those Democrat immigration policies provided a huge amount of cheap foreign labor for their business supporters. So if the WSJ demographic change projection becomes true with the Republicans unable to control the Congress or elect a President in the future, those shortsighted Republicans have only themselves to blame.

Senate Democrats are seeking to curb President Trump’s war powers in retaliation for his initiation of the drone strike that killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.Sen. Dick Durbin and Sen. Tim Kaine are cosponsoring a resolution that would force the administration to withdraw all troops from Iran, unless Congress itself declares war.“I will file a resolution, pursuant to the War Powers Act of 1974, to try to force Congress to have a debate about whether or not it is in the United States’ best interest to be in a war with Iran,” stated Durbin. “We can’t let the president make this decision on his own.”

On Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” former Gov. Pat McCrory (R- NC) argued Democrats’ attacks against President Donald Trump after the killing Qasem Soleimani sounded like Iranian talking points.McCrory said, “When the president killed a terrorist who was hiding behind the Iranian flag — but he was really a terrorist who was only 15 miles away from our embassy — he’s then called by Democratic leaders incompetent, unstable, act of war, terrorist. Just verbal attacks by our Democratic leaders. And that’s making him more weak because I think the Democrats at this point in time went too far

Iraqi lawmakers approved a resolution Sunday calling to expel U.S. troops from the country, following an American drone attack that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. The resolution asks the Iraqi government to end the agreement under which Washington sent forces to Iraq more than four years ago to help in the fight against the Islamic State terror group."The Iraqi government has an obligation to end the presence of all foreign forces on Iraqi soil and prevent it from using Iraqi lands, waters, and airspace or any other reason," Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halboosi said in an address to lawmakers before the vote.

A lawmaker in Iran urged his countrymen to attack the White House directly in response to President Trump's order to kill top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani."We can attack the White House itself, we can respond to them on the American soil. We have the power, and God willing we will respond in an appropriate time," MP Abolfazl Abutorabi said on Sunday, according to Iranian news agency ILNA. Soleimani is believed to be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American service members, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has been deemed an official terrorist organization by the U.S. government since 2014.

The U.S. drone strike this week that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani – a terrorist murderer responsible for thousands of deaths – resulted in extensive news coverage that criticized President Trump for ordering his killing and falsely portrayed Soleimani in a positive light. Journalists couldn’t pile on enough praise or make enough ridiculous comparisons glorifying Soleimani – from the despicable to the ridiculous. He was like Gen. George Patton or the Duke of Wellington (Business Insider), and former French President Charles de Gaulle or the French Foreign Legion (CNN). That strategy was hardly new.

Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress,” she said Thursday night in a statement.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News was not among those celebrating the end of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani’s reign of terror around the globe. On Friday’s show, Carlson blasted Washington “neocons” for wanting to go to war. “Chest beaters like Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska are making the usual warlike noises like they always make,” he said. By all accounts, Soleimani was the world’s most dangerous terrorist, responsible for the deaths of thousands. The number of people shedding tears for the leader of Iran’s infamous Quds Force is very limited, and most assuredly, Carlson was not mourning Soleimani’s death.

CBS News senior national security contributor, and former acting and deputy CIA director Michael Morell told "CBS This Morning" the drone strike on Soleimani will lead to "dead civilian Americans."

It’s odd how the political left cheers America’s shortcomings and mourns its victories. The United States killed the top terrorist on the planet Thursday, and Democrats were…upset. Perhaps “upset” is too vague, they were a combination of angry and scared. They were angry that President Trump ordered an air strike on Qassem Soleimani, a man responsible for the deaths of more than 600 American soldiers and thousands more wounded. They tried to pretend they were glad he was dead, that he deserved to die, but their quick condemnation of the action that took him out exposed what they were really thinking.

For decades, land-use regulation across the U.S. has emphasized single-family houses on large lots. This approach has priced many people out of the quintessential American dream: home ownership. It also has promoted suburban sprawl — a pattern of low-density, car-dependent development that has dominated growth at the edges of urban areas since the end of World War II. Now, however, Americans may be starting to question the desirability of a private house. In the past year, the Minneapolis City Council and the state of Oregon have voted to allow duplexes and other types of multi-unit housing in neighborhoods where currently only single-family homes currently are allowed.
