WASHINGTON: This column marks our third commentary on this past week’s rolling stock market disaster. In this article, we’ll explore the serious problems that have arisen from Obama’s open borders policy meant to encourage a torrent of illegal immigration into this country.
Legally, the proper term used to describe “illegal immigrants” who enter our country is “illegal aliens.” However, we’ll use this term interchangeably here with “illegal immigrants.” That’s because this latter, SJW-generated term is the only way to get placement in our current biased search engine environment.
The real problem with illegal aliens and open borders in the U.S.
Both the open borders problem and the illegal alien issue returned this month to brutalize U.S. stock averages. We’re talking about the outrageous, left-wing funded illegal alien and mostly Honduran brigade heading for America’s presumably open borders. Their objective: To take advantage of this country’s stupid and highly destructive “catch and release” policy.
This nonsensical policy essentially offers an open door via porous, essentially open borders. In turn, this encourages illegal aliens to continue flooding into the U.S. unimpeded. The thinly disguised goal of leftist organizers: To fast-track these illegals to lawfully enter American voting booths – whether they’re citizens or not. The idea is to eventually create a one-party system here and, eventually, “fundamentally transform” the U.S. into Venezuela. Open borders are the way to do it.
An outrageous observation? Not if you look around and note the same phenomenon, open borders in a different form, has been imposed on the Eurozone. Crime and terror against innocent European citizens caused by unassimilable hordes of “asylum seekers,” is the result. Once again, the Eurozone’s self-destructive policy was put in place by a cadre of elites heedless of rising public opinion against this erasure of national borders.
Trump closes open borders, earns MSM wrath
The Trump Administration’s bold moves against the latest, brazen invasion of our own borders has once again excited the anti-Trump media to a fever pitch. Such flimsy but resolutely negative stories further damage investor confidence and cause stocks to tank. But it all ties back into the “Trump trade war” meme that’s savaged the market in recent trading action.
They can say what they want about Trump. But, as we completed our draft of this article, it’s become increasingly obvious that the President’s bluster appears to have hit its target. The organized army of illegal aliens seems to have broken up, effectively ending this ill-advised, leftist-funded march against U.S. sovereignty.
That said, though, some of these folks are still likely to slip in anyway, as our southern border remains porous. For now.
Tough, pro-American moves = a tough time on Wall Street
More than any president in recent memory, President Trump is actually attempting to do something to save the jobs, the families and indeed the lives of America’s forgotten workers. The majority of these workers reside in Flyover Country, which has become solid Trump Country. Worse for U.S. leftists, these flyover adults voted “deplorably” in the 2016 election, upending the expected coronation of Hillary Clinton.
White collar work in America still dominates what’s left of the middle-class the Obama administration did its best to destroy. But skilled laborers, craftsmen and factory workers also underpinned this bedrock of the American middle-class.
Politically, this group’s concerns traditionally dominated Washington politics in general and the Democrat Party in particular. Now, “their” party has abandoned them to support racial class hatred. Enough of them finally abandoned political tradition in 2016 to vote for Donald Trump
Trump’s promise to his working class supporters
Trump promised these worker/voters he’d work hard to save their jobs, to increase employment in their industries. Above all, he has worked tirelessly to reverse the non-stop offshoring of their family-sustaining jobs to foreign countries, many of whom paid their workers not much more than slave wages.
A substantial number of formerly American jobs that left our shores were the kind of highly-skilled and fairly well-paid jobs that once accounted for a significant number of America’s middle-class families.
Trump understands that without that kind of working-class-middle-class bridge between entry level jobs and very highly-paid white collar jobs, the U.S. would eventually sink into Banana Republic status. The small cadre of wealthy coastal mandarins would eventually run everything for their benefit.
Meanwhile, the majority of low-paid peons remaining would be consigned to running the basic machinery that robots and AI weren’t already running. George Soros would be thrilled with such an outcome, as something like it is what he has long supported.
For now, at least, Trump is pulling the plug on this utopian globalist-Marxist fantasy. This false utopia is nothing less than a return to Feudalism, high-tech style.
Rich man, poor man
Trump’s revelation of the truth has ignited continuous outrage among the coastal elites. The surprising reason: Trump is actually keeping the campaign promises he made to his voters. Promises that may derail the globalist vision of a New Feudalism. Sacrilege.
Imagine a society where we only have the rich and the poor, with nothing in between. We’ve already seen how that works in Latin America and elsewhere. It’s actually the wet dream of the Deep Staters, Soros, et. al.And we don’t want it here. Or at least those middle class workers the Obama Administration didn’t kill off don’t want it here.
No matter what naysayers say, Trump is on to something important. He intends to rebuild that great middle-class layer of manufacturing jobs and an additional layer of higher level white collar jobs. The socio-economicd aim: to assure that America’s relatively classless society, retains its traditional up and down economic escalators.
Right now, the most effective way to preserve our American economic ladder system is to reconstruct the middle class by shutting the door on admitting endless numbers of low-wage workers who eventually depress the wages of all.
Restoring and enforcing our sovereign borders is NOT protectionism. It’s common sense economic rebalancing, restoring some clout to American workers and away from Silicon Valley’s 21st Century robber barons. Such a move will not only help restore national solidarity. It could help assure this nation’s ability to survive by reviving the socio-economic miracle that made this country great. For everyone.
On at least some level, President Trump fully understands all this. His remarks late last week warned Americans about the short term economic pain that could result from his policies. He also acknowledged that you don’t get rewards without taking risks. His direct predecessors chose to play it straight (or stupid) when it came to “free trade,” tariffs, and all those little rules in between that act like tariffs.
Making America Great Again?
Now the rules are changing, and change always upsets Wall Street. That’s at least part of the problem with U.S. stocks in recent weeks. Markets bungee jump between upbeat headlines and (more often these days) downbeat or outright scare headlines. The ultimate outcome of this fearsome, whipsaw trading action remains unknown. But when the headlines aren’t apoplectic on the illegal alien issue, they’re gasbagging and blustering of Trump’s “trade war.”
Next: The final article in this series takes a look at America’s Marshall Plan Syndrome, and why a much feared “trade war” actually began many years ago.
