    National Review Enlists Open Border Zealots to Trash Trump

    23 Jan 2016
    Washington D.C.

    National Review’s effort to take down GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has been billed as a symposium of “conservatives against Trump.” However, that billing may be undermined by the discovery that several of the contributors National Review relied upon to pen their anti-Trump manifesto are supporters of the open borders immigration agenda, which National Review itself previously declared would bring about the end American conservatism.

    For instance, one the publication’s contributors is David Boaz, the executive Vice President of the CATO Institute– a libertarian think tank that is one of the nation’s most vocal proponents of the open borders immigration agenda.

    National Review’s special edition also relies upon a contribution from Russell Moore— who, as National Review’s own contributor Mark Krikorian points out, has radical immigration views and ties to an immigration group funded by George Soros. Krikorian writes:

    The editorial and several symposium contributors were clear that voters have good reason to be outraged at the serial betrayals by the Republican political class, even if Trump is the wrong vessel for that outrage. But a few of the contributors have helped perpetrate those betrayals – they’re part of the reason that Trump resonates with so many voters, and I’m loath to take their advice on dealing with the problem they helped create… Russell Moore? He’s one of the leaders of the Evangelical Immigration Table, a Soros front group pushing for Obama’s immigration agenda. He’s written that “our Lord Jesus himself was a so-called ‘illegal immigrant.’” He’s tweeted that a border wall is a “golden calf.”

    As Breitbart News has previously reported, the Evangelical Immigration Table [EIT] ran a $250,000 advertising campaign in favor of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’s Gang of Eight immigration bill.

    Even National Review reported at the time, “The EIT is a project of the National Immigration Forum, which (according to its 990s, the IRS form for tax-exempt organizations) receives a substantial portion of its funding from groups backed by George Soros.”

    The group also has ties to Rubio GOP mega-donor Paul Singer, another major open borders enthusiast. As Politico reported in 2013, Singer “quietly go[t] involved in the fight for immigration reform, making a six-figure donation… to the National Immigration Forum.”

    More recently, as Breitbart has reported, “Evangelical Immigration Table, a George Soros-financed group of far left activists and Evangelical leaders, released a six-point appeal [on December 2nd] calling on Congress to bring even more Syrian and other refugees to the U.S.”

    Similarly, Michael Medved contributed to the National Review’s so-called conservative anti-Trump manifesto. Yet Medved has partnered with Michael Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch’s immigration lobbying firm, Partnership For A New American Economy (PNAE), to promote mass immigration. As PNAE explains on its website, “PNAE also partnered with “The Michael Medved Show” on a six-week radio campaign that discussed the need for immigration reform, which aired on Christian radio stations across the country.”

    To understand what PNAE means by “immigration reform,” one need only look at their past lobbying efforts. The group endorsed and lobbied for Rubio’s 2013 immigration bill, which would have issued 33 million green cards in the span of a single decade. The lobbying group has also endorsed Sen. Rubio’s 2015 immigration rewrite to massively expand the admission H-1B guest workers. Interestingly, PNAE is also chaired by Disney CEO Bob Iger, whose company laid off hundreds of American tech workers and forced them to train their lower-wage H-1B foreign worker replacements.

    National Review’s anti-Trump manifesto also relied on a contribution from Yuval Levin. Levin’s contribution is noteworthy not so much because of his past writings on immigration, but because of his work with the Young Guns Network, which is viewed by many conservatives as propping up the central figures surrendering America’s sovereignty. As the organization has explained by way of disclosure:

    The [Young Guns] YG Network (YGN) is organized as a non-profit 501(c)(4) dedicated to broadening the Young Guns movement by supporting next-generation conservative policies and the efforts of those who advocate for those policies. All Section 501(c)(4) organizations must operate primarily to advance social welfare. The YG Network does so through issue advocacy, which includes survey research, data collection and policy and message development coupled with aggressive earned and paid media strategies. The YG movement began with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, House Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and House Budget Chairman and former Vice Presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).

    The connection between Levin and Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor seems to underscore the argument advanced by John Fredericks, the popular talk radio host whose program airs in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District– where Young Gun Eric Cantor was rejected for his work on behalf of the corporate immigration agenda.

    In an exclusive interview, Fredericks tells Breitbart News that National Review’s reaction struck him as “desperate.” Fredericks said that the publication’s “elitist” contributors are “terrified”– now facing the realization that if Trump wins the nomination, they won’t enjoy the kind of special access to which they are accustomed.

    “If Trump becomes President, suddenly they’ll have one vote, just like the rest of us. No more special access. Just one vote. Trump has empowered working people who have been disenfranchised and cut out of the system. This means that the elitists at National Review will no longer have their special access and it’s driving them nuts,” said Fredericks

    A border wall is only a "golden calf" if we do not monitor and enforce it. A comprehensive enforcement plan of the border including allowing agents to fully perform their duties, anti-tunnel detection, a budget so that every mile is properly manned, denial of entry upon capture and an accurate and effective system to monitor visa overstays (BIG NUMBER) would suffice and be a serious deterrent for now. We have laws in place for this, they are just not enforced which is the main reason why people are so passionate about this subject and look for a leader who is listening.

    Trumps traction on immigration is simply stated in the article, "voters have good reason to be outraged at the serial betrayals by the Republican political class, even if Trump is the wrong vessel for that outrage. But a few of the contributors have helped perpetrate those betrayals – they’re part of the reason that Trump resonates with so many voters, and I’m loath to take their advice on dealing with the problem they helped create…"

    Welcome to Alipac joe s!!

    I would love for the situation to improve quickly enough to the point where we would not need to build the wall. That would be a wonderful thing. But we'll have to see how it goes, I think we need the wall as sad as that is, at least major portions in high traffic easy areas. Border Patrol agents are claiming they prefer the fence so they can see through it to the other side. Perhaps a combination of wall and fence at different points. For years I wanted us to fund a Wall of Americans, 18 person per mile, 6 on a shift, 3 shifts a day.

    I figured up that if we paid them $40,000 a year, $20 an hour for 2000 hours with paid holiday and sick leave plus good benefits, provided equipment, trucks, goggles, weapons, radios, phones, cameras and so forth, plus all the other gear they need, then it cost less than $3 billion a year. We spend $14 billion a year processing stupid tax returns, so if we passed the FairTax, we'd save enough money in 1 year of IRS to fund our Wall of Americans, 2000 miles x 20 agents (2 floaters per mile to cover for vacation and sick leave) = 40,000 agents, for 5 years. I thought that would be a good plan that not only saves money but improves our economy through the FairTax while using the savings on IRS spending to harass citizens and taxpayers to instead securing the border at 1/5th the cost.

    I need to get this idea to Trump.

    What exactly is conservative about granting amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens who have no intention of assimilating into our society and who's legalization will subsequently lead to a hundred million more people of the same mentality, which will cause an irreversible enormous demographic shift in our nation? How is engineering a radical change in the composition of the population of our nation conservative? It's NOT! It's the total and complete opposite of conservatism!!!

    Those Republicans, like Rubio, Kristol, and their ilk at the National Review may be members of the Republican party but they ARE NOT conservatives. They are NEOCONS - liberal wolves in conservative Republican clothing that have infested the Republican party like cockroaches and need to be purged. Those RINO Neocons like Kristol and the National Reveiw don't speak for conservatives in any way shape or form!!
