Asylum and Open Borders

Open borders … one way or the other.

The next serious challenge will be from the “independent” Judiciary. The argument will be that Trump is impeding a reasonable (in the eye of the beholder) asylum claim flow rate (for humanitarian reasons) and the migrants rights are being violated.

The ruling will be that ANY non-citizen anywhere anytime has the unfettered right to cross safely and quickly onto US soil and ask for asylum for any “humanitarian reason.  The wait time for a hearing will be 10 to 40 years because of the flood of applicants. To find and deport those denied asylum will be another 10 to 40 years.

The net effect is legal US residency for a long period of time WITH significant asylee benefits.

Trump and Conservative Issues

Is Trump now hurting the GOP and by extension Conservative platform and policies?

The Trump base is solid, but so is the Resistance.  Trump must now convert Indes, moderate Democrats, RINOs, and refrain from rallying the Democratic base. He needs to convince voters not to vote for Marxists, Anarchists and Globalists, or at least get them to stay home.

Also, try to win back some Conservative neverTrumpers. Those that “hated” Trump because he has what appears to be an open marriage.  Virtue signaling was fashionable and low risk when Trump opponents thought he would NEVER win the primary, not to mention the general. The lesson – never say never. Trump needs to find a way to let them save face and return home, even if they have to crawl back.

The country is one election away from the real possibility of even a more open border AND single provider (not just payer) health care.

One hell of a risk to take.  Some voters now will vote against their own self-interests just to deny Trump a Wall.

Punish Russia through oil prices?

In response to the social media related indictments against Russian citizens now on Russian soil, James Clapper today on CNN TV appeared to recommend the US depress oil prices to the $40 level or below.  The idea being that Russia as a country is heavily dependent on oil and gas sales and profits.

Last Friday’s indictment purports that Russian citizens used indentity theft/fraud to setup accounts on social media websites such as facebook that require the end-user provide some ID during the sign-up process. Once authenticated, the Russians then went on to make both pro and anti HRC, Stein, Bernie, Trump posts.  In addition, the indictment says one anti-Trump and one pro-Trump rally were organized for the same day.

Clapper did not say how the US should or could tank oil prices, artificially, or flood the market.  He also did not say what that might mean for US citizens, Russian citizens, and other countries around the world.  Or, if those other countries should be consulted first.

Russia is not the only country heavily dependent on oil and gas exports.  See Venezuela for example.

Refugees

Developed countries are doing under-developed countries NO favors by bailing them out. Only more deaths and misery results.

Double the tax deduction for private donations to credible organizations that do legitimate development work around the world.
