7/7/15, "Is the Silent Majority with Trump?" Rush Limbaugh
"RUSH: We have a couple of sound bites from Trump.... golf event, speaking with reporters about his campaign.
TRUMP: I think the poll's a testament. You see what's happening. Now they say I'm going even higher. So the country is fed up with what's going on. You know in the old days they used the term "silent majority." We have the silent majority back, folks.
RUSH: So Trump is saying that his rise in polling data means that there is a silent majority. Now, I have stated on previous occasions, because I know it to have been true when I said it (it was true in 2007; it was true in 2004 and '06, and I'm pretty sure it was true this time a year ago) that a vast majority of Americans oppose amnesty for all of the illegal immigrants in the country and that the opposition is visceral; it's angry and it is not haphazard and casual....
TRUMP: You're talking about illegal immigration and it is a bad subject in this country, and people don't have the guts to address it. That's why I just walked over here; everyone's going crazy. They're all saying, "Please, please, keep it up, Mr. Trump." So you'll see.
RUSH: I'm sure they are. I'm sure a lot of people are saying, "Please keep it up, Mr. Trump," because there aren't too many people who think they can keep it up themselves. There aren't too many people who think they can make a difference. So Trump is the focus of attention. But is it a silent majority? Do you see any evidence of it? One other thing, too. All this talk about Trump destroying the Republican Party? Would somebody give me a break on that? The Republican Party has done that just fine on its own, in a lot of ways, before Trump even came along....
RUSH: And, by the way, I saw a story on Breitbart. What Trump is saying about illegal immigrants and Mexicans is not new, and NBC didn't care in years past. "In his 2011 bestselling book, Time to Get Tough, Trump held both Republicans and Democrats responsible for the nation’s failed immigration policies and cited Government Accountability Office (GAO) data revealing the economic costs the nation’s [Are you ready for this?] 351,000 criminal aliens imposed on US taxpayers at the time."
"'Both sides need to grow up and put America's interests first -- and that means doing what’s right for our economy, our national security, and our public safety,' wrote Trump.
'According to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) 2011 report, America’s prisons house 351,000 criminal aliens who committed a crime after having already broken the law by entering America illegally.' Trump added, 'Making taxpayers pay for 351,000 criminals who should never have been here in the first place is ridiculous.'"
He did book signings.
He did speeches based on the contents of the book.
But he wasn't running for office, and so it didn't matter to anybody.
But now he's getting dangerously close to upsetting the establishment's ruling class hierarchy. "Trump noted that even the government's own figures estimated the incarceration costs of these illegal criminals is $1.1 billion.
Perhaps even more staggering than the economic costs are the human costs, wrote Trump. He cited the GAO's figures which reveal that criminal illegal aliens commit acts that result in an average of seven arrests," per immigrant, is the point. "Trump also pointed out the New York Times' 2009 reporting on the fact that one out of every three federal prison inmates is Latino."
He didn't just make this stuff up that he's saying now. He read it in the New York Times and in GAO official reports."...

Comment: If a candidate's number one issue is immediately building a substantial physical fence along every inch of our southern border I'll vote for that candidate. Without a southern border, the US isn't a country. As stated in Limbaugh transcript, it's not a new issue for Trump. As Limbaugh states, Trump is getting "dangerously close" to dismantling the GOP E. This acknowledges the obvious---the border is everything. It has been for many years. As to where is the silent majority, what about the 2010 and 2014 landslide midterm elections we gave the GOP--not for any reason they gave us, only because we were begging them to stop the destruction of this country---only to have them laugh in our face and continue advancing the globalist left agenda. This was after they'd lost the Senate and House in 2006 and all 3 in 2008. You want some noise from the silent majority? It takes money and time to travel around the country and gather in huge crowds for tv cameras. Andrew Breitbart might not have worked himself to death to bring the GOP back from Siberia in 2010 if he'd known they wanted the same things the radical left wants. The US is a slave nation today thanks to the GOP and Fox News. Slaves can't free themselves. Europeans are experiencing the same thing:
1/7/15, "The European Civil War: Elites vs People in a Fight for Survival," Gerald Warner, Breitbart London.
Germany, Britain and other EU states "are actively promoting the destruction of their own societies, in the interests of globalisation and the elimination of national identities and cultures."
"Europe is in a state of war: specifically, a civil war between the self-appointed elites who have destroyed much of the continent’s freedom, culture and prosperity and the insurgent populations they have deceived and enslaved. This is a war to the death; only one side can survive the outcome....
The people of Germany, like those of many other European countries, are feeling increasingly desperate about the imposition upon them of mass immigration – an inflow that is unending and which is largely composed of Muslims who are hostile to Christianity and the indigenous culture.
Well, you might think, that is a serious situation; but fortunately Germany is a representative democracy and when citizens make their concerns known to their representatives, the government will surely take steps to help them. Not so. German Chancellor Angela Merkel used her New Year's Eve address to vilify her fellow citizens in the Pegida movement who are protesting against the Islamisation of the West.
According to their chancellor, these people who simply wish to live in a country that is recognisably Germany “have prejudice, coldness, even hatred in their hearts”. Yet the number of asylum seekers in Germany rose to 200,000 in the past year – quadruple the figure for 2012 – and immigration reached a 20-year high. There are similar situations across Europe."...

Of course, the GOPe are trashing Trump. They have not done one thing to secure the borders and stop the criminal element that is invading our country. They are cowards afraid to even speak out about the criminals and diseases that are flooding across our borders.
The American people,whether you call them the silent majority or not, are outraged by both parties putting the needs of illegal aliens over that of American citizens
. I pray that a ground swell of overwhelming support builds on behalf of Donald Trumps´s willingness to speak the truth.
The talking heads, yes those on FOX News too, should either prove Trump wrong or shut up. Facts do not lie and they are not partisan. Tell us,wizards of smart, which facts and statistics that Trump provides are wrong. What the GOPe can´t let happen is the silent majority being stirred to life. That is why they condemn and try and marginalize conservatives and the Tea Party. The Neanderthals out there in fly over country can´t be allowed to be roused and this is the issue that will awaken the sleeping giant."
