This is the America that we could have had by now, had the man we elected in 2016 done his job with the same kind of intestinal fortitude that another Yankee, Abraham Lincoln, demonstrated when he became the chief executive of a divided union.
So on November 8th we voted for Donald Trump, and that night we danced when he beat the Hildebeast.
And then, kids, having put control of the executive branch in the hands of a man who told us he would Make America Great Again, we turned our attention to those things that he couldn’t fix for us.
We grew in our faith. We went to work and studied hard in school. We righted our financial ships as best we could. We got healthier and stronger, so we could help Make America Great Again.
We kept the new president in our prayers. We chipped in a few dollars when we could. We contacted our congressmen. We berated federal officials when they didn’t get on board with the program.
We watched in awe as the wall went up in record time. By the first Christmas of President Trump’s administration, every inch of the U.S.-Mexico border was lined with a wall under construction. In the busiest sections like at the border crossings, the wall was already completed. Border Patrol had heavy weapons, watchtowers, and every electronic surveillance device imaginable to keep tabs on the comings and goings at our nation’s southern border. The president had steamrolled over the Congress when it balked at funding the wall. He simply took it out of other departments’ budgets, and told Congress he’d see them in court if they had a problem with it.
In the north, at the U.S.-Canada border, the number of Border Patrol officers doubled and the use of drones multiplied their effectiveness. The growing number of illegals from Asia and Latin America crossing over from Canada led to rumblings in the White House about a second wall.
At his first State of the Union address, the president could tell the Congress that the wall had been built. His secretary of the treasury and secretary of agriculture were twisting the arms of Mexicans working here to get Mexico to pay for the wall, after the fact. Every cent would be repaid by a small fee on financial transactions between the U.S. and Mexico, said President Trump. In short order, the billions flowing from Mexican workers in the U.S. back to Mexico would lead to a fully repaid wall, paid for by Mexicans and not American citizens. The president laughed at the rage of the Mexican and fake-American multitudes, and more than half of the country stood and applauded.
He then announced that as of that moment, any foreign-born, illegal immigrant in the United States would be subject to immediate, permanent removal, with no grounds for appeal. He said they had better pack their bags, because American law was going to be enforced again, even in minority communities.
When federal judges obeyed their masters in the liberal lawyer guilds, the president urged Congress to exercise its constitutional power to limit those judges’ jurisdictions. He did so for the Supreme Court as well, informing conservatives that so doing would enable the overturn of immoral judicial decisions like Roe v. Wade overnight. When Congress failed to act, the president ignored their orders and proceeded with his agenda anyway. Any bureaucrat in the executive branch who objected was promptly fired and replaced by one of the many eager, patriotic replacements flocking to Washington, D.C. from the heartland.
Only a few weeks later, thousands of his freshly-trained and equipped Immigration and Customs Enforcement troops rolled into the barrios of the American Southwest and began going door-to-door to evict America’s illegal tenants. Your cousin Bobby was one of them. He personally handcuffed MS-13 gang members. He escorted families to waiting buses, treating them with all the dignity that evicted homeowners always receive. They were allowed a few minutes to gather their prized possessions, and given an all-expenses-paid vacation back to their nations of origin. Those nations would later foot the bill for the extensive operation, which stretched on for two months and ran into the billions of dollars. The return of all of those people enriched the host nations with hard-working, fertile citizens just looking for better opportunities for their families. America had enough of their own to go around.
At Easter 2018, when the vacationers were being escorted away, the states of California, Washington, Oregon, New Mexico, Illinois, and the New England region attempted to block the federal agents from doing their jobs. A few even got hurt by illegal aliens as a result of interference from local and state officials. So, the president did what he had every right to do: he called out the National Guard and put the cities and states in their place while the federal government fulfilled its obligations. Soldiers with bayonets pointed at black, brown, and liberal mobs shielded ICE officers as they liberated America’s Southwest. The mobs got so incensed that they pelted the soldiers and shot at them from nearby. So, the soldiers killed them in self-defense. The president shrugged his shoulders and said it was terrible, but they had broken the law, and his job was to enforce the nation’s laws. The cities where these attacks took place were put under martial law for the duration of the operation, and until the organizers of such attacks were arrested and tried. Some riots broke out, but the National Guardsmen put those down, too. The few soldiers who refused to follow the president’s orders were easily replaced with volunteers from elsewhere in the country, sometimes even from those very cities.
There were lots of people ready to help. White citizens started flying their flags again, and openly carrying their sidearms or rifles. The ones who didn’t were self-deporting to Canada or the blue states. And those states were getting less blue with each bus departing for Mexico. The departure of so many Democratic voters and their illegal immigrant relatives recalibrated the balance of political power in some places far from the border like Northern Virginia, Orlando, Kansas City, Chicago, and Denver. A Republican wave was building for the 2018 midterms.
The liberal media howled like it was the end of the world, and the European Union and United Nations threatened sanctions for alleged human rights violations. But the president had appointed a strong, conservative white Christian to the U.N., and he promptly vetoed the proposed sanctions. As for the EU, the president simply brushed them off and strengthened U.S. trade with Russia and with Asia. The Chinese were more than willing to negotiate a new trade deal with America once they saw that we could handle our own internal affairs again. They respected the president’s strength.
The Israelis, oddly enough, carped about human rights in America while shooting and tear-gassing Palestinians in their own country. So the president made good on one of his campaign pledges: to make the U.S. a neutral mediator in the Middle East. He tore up the previous presidents’ pledges to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, and declared that Jerusalem ought to be permanently divided between Israel and Palestine. Then he withdrew all the American troops from the Middle East. Peace in Iraq, Yemen, and Syria was the job of the Arabs, not Americans.
In the summer of 2018 there was a ticker-tape parade when all our boys came home from Afghanistan. The president said they had done their duty. He blamed Clinton, Bush, and Obama for the debacles in Afghanistan and Iraq. Empires never worked out and he was elected to Make America Great Again, not some doomed Anglo-Zionist empire.
Around Christmas, your brother Jimmy earned his captain’s bars in the president’s army just as it prepared to march into New York City. The president had had enough of the media, lawyers, big corporations, and bureaucrats agitating everyone and had ordered that America’s laws against sedition and treason needed to be enforced. The FBI had attempted to act, but had been rebuffed by the mayor of New York City. The National Guard needed reinforcements to make good on the president’s promise to restore law and order in America’s media and financial capital. America had reacquired control of its streets and its borders, and was on its way to regaining control over its communications, currency, courts, and economy. The media, the banks, the lawyers, and the Fed were next. The president had said about the illegals: “they all have to go back.” Now he said: “they all have to go — to jail.” And the masses loved him for it.
