In January of 2019, the Democrat Left in Congress and the Leftmedia were mocking President Trump (and his supporters) for claiming there was a real "crisis" on the southern border and declaring a National Emergency as a result. However, soon after Trump's declaration even the Leftmedia has begun to admit a true crisis exists. That's because the figures for 2019, most notably for March, were simply undeniable. Though there are no official numbers for the month, however, the daily and weekly reports assure us that well over 100,000 apprehensions at the border will be the result.
The importance of battling the Left in the short run, or 'short game' is akin to holding the line against a multitude of attacks on multiple fronts in the culture war. It cannot be overstated that conservatives must protect Western society against the imminent dangers of a Leftist takeover. However, it is perhaps even more vital that conservatives work out a strategy to successfully engage in the 'long game' of cultural change. Otherwise, the 'short game' victories will be short-lived and the overall war will tilt even more toward a Leftist defeat and a disaster for liberty around the world.
