In 1985, Coca-Cola tried to foist New Coke on the country. Millions of Americans hated the taste, and revolted, whereupon the soft drink maker pulled the product. New Coke was the biggest American market failure since Ford’s Edsel (1958). The Republican presidential nominee is currently test-marketing New Trump, which trades in tough immigration enforcement for virtually no enforcement. Will Trump’s supporters drink the, er, Coke?
He’s not going to deport anyone!
On August 17, CNN’s Manu Raju reported that Kellyanne Conway had written an article in 2014 supporting mass amnesty for illegal aliens for Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us amnesty front.
Megyn, what he's saying is first secure the borders and actually apply and enforce the law... if we actually enforce immigration laws, a lot of this starts to change. Secondly, you have to deport those who have committed crimes. [Donald Trump to Megyn Kelly, The Kelly File, Fox News, Monday, August 22, 2016.]
The same night, CNN reported that Trump had flip-flopped on deportation, after reconquista groups had vetoed the idea.
It's still undecided whether Donald Trump will continue to support forced deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants living in the US, his campaign manager said Sunday. But Trump himself insisted Monday, "I'm not flip-flopping."
"I'm not flip flopping," the Republican presidential nominee told Fox News on the issue Monday.
"We want to come up with a fair but firm process. Fair but firm." He did not, however, provide any specifics or elaborate on his position further.
When asked by repeated questioning by CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" on Sunday whether Trump stood behind the idea of a deportation task force, Kellyanne Conway, Trump's new campaign manager, responded, "to be determined."
Conway was responding to reports about what was said in a meeting Trump held on Saturday with a Hispanic advisory council. Sources in the room told BuzzFeed that Trump spoke about a "humane and efficient" way to work with undocumented immigrants in the country currently, which was characterized by BuzzFeed as a way to legalize some and let them stay. [“Donald Trump: 'I'm not flip-flopping' on immigration,” by Tal Kopan, CNN, Updated 4:38 P.M. ET, Monday, August 22, 2016.]As I recounted at the top, on Monday night, Conway told Fox News host Megyn Kelly that Trump is going to deport “Those [illegals] who have committed crimes.”
Taken at her word, that would include virtually every illegal human being in America. But Trump is singing dulcet tones about illegals these days. My brain is melting down from the cognitive dissonance.
Here’s how politicians have played that particular word game for years. “Committed crimes” is spun to mean non-immigration crimes.
But why stop there? Indeed, the authorities never do.
On Anderson Cooper360 last night, deposed Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who is now a CNN talking head, maintained that Trump’s “position has never changed.”
In an earlier draft, I tried to come up with a possible universe in which Lewandowski was telling the truth. I thought I’d found one such universe, but eventually concluded I was wrong.
Taken literally, “Those who have committed crimes” is the biggest possible pool, because it isn’t limited to convicted criminals, or even those convicted of misdemeanors and/or felonies. However, no politician has ever included those not convicted, even though we’re talking about illegals, who can be guilty of felonies without benefit of trial. But this is New Trump, so we would do well to dispense with literal interpretations.
Keep in mind that the number of illegals being used by the MSM is “11 million.” That fakestat has been around for 10 years or more, and was phony from the get-go. The reality is closer to 50 million.
Is Trump going to deport 50 million illegal human beings? Now even Old Trump proposed doing that. He used the ancient fakestat of 11 million.
What about illegals convicted of misdemeanors?
If a politician is going to qualify his position on deportations, as opposed to saying, “We’re going to deport them all,” he’s already well on his way down the slippery slope. No such pol will deport an illegal convicted of a misdemeanor, even if the record of the conviction still exists.
Now, let’s look at that number for “convicted felons,” the next group down the slippery slope. It’s probably something on the order of .1%, say, 50,000.
Illegal aliens are virtually all criminals—as the late Sonny Bono used to point out—they’re illegal! However, most of them are “colored,” even though the authorities routinely lie in their fakestats, and identify them as “white,” in order to increase the white crime rate, so as to make the black rate look less bad. However, the felon rate is kept dishonestly low, through various practices of affirmative action policing and criminal justice.
When a member of an affirmative action group commits a crime, the offense charged is many degrees below the actual crime. For example, when a colored criminal commits a violent felony (aggravated assault, attempted murder, first-degree rape, grand larceny), he is often initially charged with a misdemeanor: Simple assault, trespassing, petty larceny, etc., or not charged at all.
“Trespassing,” you ask? Yes, trespassing.
As I wrote in 2014 in VDARE, in one of my many reports on “disappearing” crime/Fakestats,
[Thus,] serial rapist Daryl Thomas, could have been caught much earlier had the NYPD not covered up his first-degree, forcible felony rapes by describing them as “trespassing.”
You can Google here under “Daryl Thomas” and “rape.” Be forewarned, however, that there are a number of black rapists of the same name in different states. You’re looking for the New York City black serial rapist named Daryl Thomas.
The two largest groups of illegal alien felons who would not be deported under the new, flip-flop Trump immigration non-enforcement plan would be:
1. Illegal human beings who were caught on American soil, and deported, only to be later caught again on American soil.
The mere presence on American soil of a previously deported illegal alien is a felony. Now, we’re talking immigration law here, which is unique. Under U.S. immigration law, there is no presumption of innocence. If you’re a foreign national caught on American soil without a valid U.S. passport, green card, or some sort of visa or work authorization, according to U.S. immigration law, you’re supposed to get immediately deported. And if you return illegally, and get caught a second (or more than a second) time, you’re guilty of a felony, and again subject to immediate imprisonment, and immediate deportation, once you’ve served your time.
You’re not “allegedly” guilty of a felony, and you’re not subject to a trial. That’s how simple immigration law is—on paper.
However, ever since the 1986 Reagan Amnesty, the feds, scores of “sanctuary” cities, and a few such states, have refused to enforce U.S. immigration law altogether, or have done so in a rare and capricious fashion.
There are millions of illegal human beings who have been deported, and then again been caught illegally on American soil. ICE has typically responded by either deporting them again, or doing nothing at all. Immigration officials virtually never prosecute previously deported illegal alien felons for returning here. Thus, one reads of illegal human beings who have been caught here and deported up to nine times. (I’m being very conservative here; by now, there are probably previously deported illegal human beings who have been caught on American soil 20 times.)
2. Identity thieves. Identity theft is also a felony, even the first time, and while probably tens of millions of illegal human beings routinely engage in it, all levels of government have unofficially retired from enforcing these laws against illegals, as well as against those who sell stolen identity documents (social security cards, driver’s licenses, etc.).
Thus, there are tens of millions of illegal alien felons who have never been convicted of felonies, and thus will not be deported, under the Trump-Conway flip-flop.
If Trump will wimp out on deporting illegal aliens in general, and now only claims that he will deport “those who have committed crimes,” you can bet he’ll wimp out on many convicted felons, as well. ‘Oh, it’ll break up his family!’
It seems that Hispanic organizations complained about Trump’s deportation plan, and so he scrapped it. These are reconquista groups that want to destroy America, and which will vilify Trump, no matter how much he bends over for them. Smart move, Mr. Trump!
You know what another name for Donald Trump’s current “deportation” plan is? “Mass illegal alien amnesty.”
There are at least two Donald Trumps. One is a tough guy, and one is a wimp.

Best. Week. Ever. on @ThisWeekABC "This was the best week...in the Trump campaign...he's been able to be himself the authentic Donald Trump"
That’s all, until the sightings of the next “authentic Donald Trump.”
