The future of conservatism, low expectations, and the Overton Window

Are we going to allow ourselves to get sucked into the Overton window, dumb down our expectations, and destroy any morsel of conservatism left?

Today, I discuss why the president is trying to tamp down conservative rebellion right at the time when we need to protest his surrender at the border. I explain why the entire notion of Mexico helping us do something we should do on our own is offensive and how this will be used to get us acclimated to a “new normal” of mass migration. That way, if the flow ebbs slightly for a few months, but still remains historically high, he can make us feel like we’re winning.

Really, we will wind up moving that Overton window again and again.
