From what appeared like a Trump pivot toward a softer approach to the illegal migrant problem, gently suggested in the press conference folllowing his meeting with President Nieto, Trump made a 180 degree pivot back to his hardline position when Nieto tweeted that he had told Trump at the beginning of their meeting that he will not pay for the wall.  In truth, both versions are probably correct.  Nieto probably did say to Trump at the first opportunity behind closed doors that he would not pay for the wall.  And Trump probably did not discuss the wall with him, choosing to avoid argumentation, and opting for cooperation on things of common interest.  

But the spin put to this by his political foes and media critics saying that he crumbled, was defeated, and lied about it, forced Trump to respond by contradicting Nieto, and insisting that he will make Mexico pay for the wall, regardless.

This reminds us of the singular event that created the Roman Empire as we know it today.  Julius Caesar was staying in Ravenna with only one out of his eight legions with him, Legio XIII, at that time, when he learned that the Roman Senate had called on him to resign and disband his victorious army, stationed in Gaul.  Julius Caesar had only 5,000 legionnaires and 300 cavalry that was no match against the many legions of Pompey in Rome.  What follows, according to "Julius Caesar Crosses the Rubicon, 49 BC," EyeWitness to History, www.eyewitnesstohistory.com (2002), is interesting:


"When the news came [to Ravenna, where Caesar was staying] that the interposition of the tribunes in his favor had been utterly rejected, and that they themselves had fled Rome, he immediately sent forward some cohorts, yet secretly, to prevent any suspicion of his plan; and to keep up appearances, he attended the public games and examined the model of a fencing school which he proposed building, then - as usual - sat down to table with a large company of friends.  

However, after sunset some mules from a near-by mill were put in his carriage,  and he set forward on his journey as privately as possible, and with an exceedingly    scanty retinue. The lights went out. He lost his way and wandered about a  long time - till at last, by help of a guide, whom he discovered towards daybreak,    he proceeded on foot through some narrow paths, and again reached the road.    Coming up with his troops on the banks of the Rubicon, which was the frontier    of his province, he halted for a while, and revolving in his mind the importance    of the step he meditated, he turned to those about him, saying: 'Still we  can    retreat! But once let us pass this little bridge, - and nothing is left but    to fight it out with arms!'

Even as he hesitated this incident occurred. A man of strikingly noble mien and graceful aspect appeared close at hand, and played upon a pipe. To hear him not merely some shepherds, but soldiers too came flocking from their posts, and amongst them some trumpeters. He snatched a trumpet from one of them and ran to the river with it; then sounding the "Advance!" with a piercing blast he crossed to the other side. At this Caesar cried out, 'Let us go where the omens of the Gods and the crimes of our enemies summon us! THE DIE IS NOW CAST!'  Accordingly he marched his army over the river; [then] he showed them the tribunes of the Plebs, who on being driven from Rome had come to meet him, and in the presence of that assembly, called on the troops to pledge him their fidelity; tears springing to his eyes [as he spoke] and his garments rent from his bosom."

The long story of Julius Caesar, Marcus Junius Brutus, Marc Anthony, Gaius Octavius, Gaius Cassius Longinus . . . and the rise of the first Roman Empire from the ashes of the Roman Republic . . . are road signs of history that men need to know to avoid their final destinations.

The TRUMPET has sounded across the Rubicon - immigration reform is upon America - because the American people are sick and tired of having their sovereignty trampled.

JUST AS THE ESTABLISHMENT HAS MARSHALLED THE MINORITIES TO VOTE FOR THEIR CANDIDATES OF EITHER PARTY, SO IS TRUMP MARSHALLING THE WHITE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS TO VOTE FOR HIM.  

Trump is 10% ahead of Clinton amongst the likely White voters, just as Clinton is 10% ahead of Trump among the minorities.  But since White voters outnumber non-White voters, and are more likely to vote, Trump has a very strong momentum going into the election.  The Rasmussen Report's latest poll showed Trump having 40% of the votes, against Clinton's 39%, Gary Johnson 13%, and the remiander 7%.  It showed that despite the falling away of Hispanic voters due to Trump's post-Mexico-visit hardline stance, he has more than made up for it with an increase in White voters, and that having paid the price of political incorrectness, he is all set to win the election by simply staying the course.

Trump is vociferous and aggressive where his common sense tells him to be firm.  Being pragmatic, Trump is actually more predictable than his rival, whose motives (no less, and likely more aggressive) stretch beyond the fringe of American values, to British national interests and to globalist agendas, which explains why the UK and EU mainstream press are so violently against Trump, even from the time he was just beginning to campaign in the Republican primaries.

WHAT DO YOU KNOW, THE CHINADAILY FORUM FIRST PREDICTED TRUMP WILL OVERTAKE CLINTON, AND TODAY, THE CNN POLL AGREED HE DID.  

TRUMP 45%
CLINTON 43%
JOHNSON 7%
STEIN 2%

BUT THE RASMUSSEN REPORT ALREADY REPORTED THAT TRUMP WAS AHEAD AS OF 9/2/16 WITH

TRUMP 40%
CLINTON 39%
JOHNSON 13%
STEIN 7%

SEE FOLKS, THE RASMUSSEN REPORT, BEING THE LEAST BIASED, WAS THE FIRST TO SHOW THE NEW TREND, 3 DAYS BEFORE CNN ADMITTED THEIR POLLS SHOWED IT TOO.

NOW, TRUMP WILL SIMPLY GAIN MOMENTUM UP TO NOVEMBER 8, AS THE LAST HOLD-OUTS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HOPING FOR CRUZ, BUSH, KASICH, OR RUBIO TO RUN AGAINST CLINTON IN 2020 ARE REALIZING THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL 2024, WHICH MEANS THEY WOULD HAVE LOST ALL POWER TO INFLUENCE EVENTS FOR 8 LONG YEARS, NOT FOUR.  THEY NOW REALIZE THEY HAVE MORE TO LOSE BY OPPOSING TRUMP THAN BY SUPPORTING HIM.  THE AVALANCHE IS COMING DOWN!!!
