With mandatory quarantine blanketing the majority of the globe, people everywhere are wondering: Are things ever going to go back to normal? The consensus seems to be: Probably not, at least not any time soon.
Top scientists say normal life won’t resume until 2021, most politicians keep extending their lockdown timelines, tens of millions find themselves without work, and commentators predict the WuFlu will usher in an entirely new post-coronavirus world order. So, what will the new New World Order look like? There seem to be two competing desires in that department as COVID-19 has brought about an international, inter-sector, showdown between Globalism and Nationalism.
Were Reason alone our predictor, Team Nationalist would have this in the bag.
Coronavirus is a story all about borders. At the root of this pandemic is a tale about the evils of open borders, diversity, globalism, immigration, and the fragility of economic interconnectivity.
To be sure: Immigration patriots have been vindicated at every turn of this crisis:
- Concern for your homeland above other nations doesn’t make you a racist
- Race is real
- Demography is destiny
- Globalism is a rigged and ruptured system
Sure, Joe Sixpack is getting redpilled about the fact Team Nationalist was right all along while he’s in his sequestered state— it was common sense to suspend flights, close the borders, and to make and keep supplies at home as soon as the KungFlu started making headlines—but do more ‘woke’ citizens mean a ‘w’ for Team Nationalism or are we simply being corralled into the next phase of globalism, despite rising consciousness about that system’s flaws? Many dissidents on the right are optimistic; however, I share John Derbyshire’s doubts.
Even under pressure of the current crisis and the realization that open borders and free markets have failed us, “[The American] government is still cheerfully bringing in tens of thousands of guest workers from abroad, even as the numbers of unemployed Americans rises through the stratosphere.” When pressed about the move, President Trump during a press conference literally said that without foreign guest workers coming in to do agricultural work, “We’re not going to have farms.” Someone should remind the President that H-2A foreign visa workers make up only about 10% of the US crop farm workforce. And with exponential American joblessness, how are demands to suspend programs like H1-B visas not being implemented if Nationalists are on the winning side of this thing.
Simply put: It’s because we’re not winning. The Globalists are.
Yes, we had a glimmer of hope for a few hours when President Trump announced an Immigration Moratorium Executive Order via Twitter—all of which was completely undone once Trump became a puppet to enemies to the America First crowd, planted within his White House.
Immigration moratorium EO? More like symbolic gesture BS. Rather than focusing on temporary foreign workers visas, which take good paying jobs away from Americans—you know, some 26 million of whom are unemployed at the moment—all Trump did was put a 60 day pause on new green cards… Something that was already de facto being done since the State Department has stopped processing visa applications due to virus hysteria weeks ago!
As Michelle Malkin put it: “It's all moratorium hat and no cattle”
- All new green card applications and routine visa processing were already suspended
- Refugee resettlement was already suspended
- Despite massive layoffs of H-1B workers in tech, there is no move to send them home
- More than a million F-1 foreign student visa holders remain in the country, including nearly 400,000 from China
All this, despite the fact a whopping 79% of Americans are now in favor of a full halt to immigration!
That’s because Team Globalist is in control: They’re using the pandemic to bend the law and usher in an era of Anarcho-Tyranny in America, and across the globe. “Thanks to the Chinese Virus, you can be arrested for leaving your home or travelling for “non-essential purposes. Failure to “social distance” can mean jail-time as well. Yet the same politicians and judges who propose and enforce such measures have freed thousands of criminals from jails.”
Meantime, there are reports that Deep State saboteurs in ICE SVU are executing a mass jailbreak for illegal aliens in custody, as “more than 160 have already been released by ICE in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus in detention facilities.”
And as convicted criminals are released with nowhere to go, law abiding Americans wonder if and when they’ll ever be freed from house arrest. Not until there are “no new cases,” “no new deaths,” or a Gates-approved vaccine emerges, according to public health autocrat Anthony Fauci.
And the tyranny isn’t just medical but technological as well, with Google releasing location data—to the government and public—so to monitor whether or not we’re following social distancing rules.
Meantime, with the US only months away from the Presidential election, Americans are completely unsure of how procedurally they will cast their ballots, as primaries have already suspended in-person voting over the Chinese virus.
How will Americans—now 1 in 10 of whom are unemployed—view their President come November? The Globalists have had his back against a wall this whole time: When he refused to shut down the economy, they blamed him for every death; now that he has responded aggressively, the economy is being thrust into a recession as his Presidency hangs on the decision of when to reopen America.
So, what should Trump do? What he was elected to do in the first place: Wave the flags of economic nationalism and immigration patriotism for the sake of America’s founding stock! Stop throwing trillions at the pandemic (which will invariably end up in the pockets of Wall Street) and let Main St get back to work before unemployment kills more of America the disease itself.
And for heaven’s sake: Use the 30-day window afforded in section 6 of his own EO, to expand the immigration moratorium to something meaningful. Include a suspension of additional guest worker visas and programs that undercut the American workforce, visas like the H-1B, H4, B1, and B2 to name a few. Ensure American Workers are first in line to return to work by bringing on a Second Phase EO concerning Guest Worker Visas!
The America First movement has been right throughout this pandemic, and 8 in 10 Americans now share their goal of an immigration moratorium. There could never be a more perfect time for implementing an immigration restrictionist agenda. Meantime, thinking more immigration will help America’s stratospheric unemployment levels is dumber than thinking people won’t riot when they haven’t any food, even as their immigrant over-class feeds on the carcass of what was once America the Beautiful.
