I happened to catch a “news commentary” on WOAI out of San Antonio Monday and I was shocked at how the border crisis is being morphed into a “mush-headed economic marvel.”
The station news director’s commentary pointed out that if president Trump indeed closes the border in order to deal with the unchecked, illegal immigration, it could cause huge economic damage in the San Antonio area.
No question, he’s right. What’s more, the numbers being bandied-about – like $50-billion in damage/loss of business – could be a major economic hit at a time when wee don’t need it.
Couple the commentary with reports like CNN’s “Trump seems inclined to close border despite potential chaos…” or USA Today’s “Trump border closing? Republicans, Chamber of Commerce question …” and an economically rational behaviorist might be inclined to agree.
However, here’s a different way of looking at this battle royale of political ideologies and it contains a key lesson in how globalists are trying to “take-down” American sovereignty (oh, and exceptionalism, too). And I suspect the Left is crying “Economics!” on border issues is based on what?
Consider the sources cited. We know how and where this latest “left hook” is coming from.
The way it works is simple aikido. Unbalance your opponents. With apologies to master Morihei Ueshiba, the trick of the left is now to take the bleeding-hearts and the middle-of-the-roaders and explain that if a policy is bad for the economy, it therefore must be bad policy.
Plus, making republicans think it’s their idea, when it’s really an economic proposition, OMG how slick is that? We’re awe-struck at the crooked-craftiness of it all.
Therefore, if the new-gen of wanton socialists are to succeed, they cannot be honestly critical of capitalism (like grandpa Bernie, they lie about socialism & capitalism being able to peacefully co-exist), they are instead now selectively embracing Money Over All in order to tear down the Mexico border and replace it with “Son of Border 21” – an idea which has been pressed by the New Democrat Network and is marketed as their “21st Century Border Initiative.” (Politics is all about selling something…especially bad ideas…)
In essence, the liberalistas of the left believe that something like a European Schengen Area might work if it were to include North America and be rolled out with Mexico. The Great leftist dream of a North American Union is far from dead. It’s actively in play..
In case you don’t know how Schengen works, the high-level may be found on Wikipedia:
“The Schengen Area is an area comprising 26 European states that have officially abolished all passport and all other types of border control at their mutual borders. The area mostly functions as a single jurisdiction for international travel purposes, with a common visa policy. The area is named after the 1985 Schengen Agreement.”
Sadly, the diminution of national borders has been a boon to the Muslim invasion from Africa and the Middle East. Which is why after losing the Battle of Tours, the Second Muslim invasion of Europe has been pulled-off with little organized opposition. Not current on the Battle of Tours? Wiki it and you’ll find:
“The Battle of Tours (10 October 732) – also called the Battle of Poitiers and, by Arab sources, the Battle of the Highway of the Martyrs marked the victory of the Frankish and Burgundian forces under Charles Martel over the invasion forces of the Umayyad Caliphate led by Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi, Governor-General of al-Andalus. It was fought in an area between the cities of Poitiers and Tours, in the Aquitaine of west-central France, near the village of Moussais-la-Bataille, about 20 kilometres (12 mi) northeast of Poitiers. The location of the battle was close to the border between the Frankish realm and the then-independent Duchy of Aquitaine under Odo the Great. “
And yes, the French/Franks turned back the invasion:
“The Franks were victorious. Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi was killed, and Charles subsequently extended his authority in the south. Details of the battle, including its exact location and the number of combatants, cannot be determined from accounts that have survived. Notably, the Frankish troops won the battle without cavalry.”
My point is not to be critical of the Muslim take-over of Europe which is now well-ensconced, which will, within 50-60 years, result in a majority Muslim Europe, just as the seeds of Islam are sprouting nicely in unlikely places around America.
From the analytical side, in many ways, the Muslim theocratic model is a more resource-adaptive than pure capitalism for reasons we will get into in an upcoming Peoplenomics.com report. Long-term interest bubbles always get their “mark-to-market” whether it’s the South Sea Bubble, the Long Depression, the Great Depression, or whatever comes next.
For this morning, however, the main ideas to be linking-up in your thinking on the border collapse are:
- Borders are military, political and economic boundaries.
- The new strategy of the Left is to embrace economics to argure for open borders. Fear of loss…
- The “American Middle” has no clue as to the either the historic importance of borders (though the Franks obviously did). Thanks, Common Core. Let’s “respect one-another” right into slavery, shall we, infidel? All part of the plan.
- Nor does the Dumb America see how the Schengen passport-free area has not only enabled the rise of a modern technical socialist hybrid in Europe, but also…
- The Schengen area ensured that once breached at a few critical southern points by invaders, just are Greece, Italy, Turkey, and so forth, the Gen2 invasion of Islam into Europe would be unchecked.
- The Left won’t call anyone an invader, though. They are “immigrants.” You bet’cha. All designed to make your heart bleed, Frankly speaking.
As a result, the Trump administration has a mother-giant problem that the Left has already seized the high ground on – they are stealing the economic angle in order to advance the already articulated 10-year liberal democrat ideal enshrined in the NDN border proposal.
Analysis any further is really more a Peoplenomics topic, because “Adaptive Capitalism” (an economic model of free-market capitalism that doesn’t implode into periodic longwave economic depressions) hasn’t been built, yet. On the other hand, the Schengen model has failed and the corporate socialists have seize the EU which will find some way to profit shortly from the coming implosion of Turkey where the lira is going down the tubes as we speak. See “Turkish Assets Seen in Limbo as Erdogan Loses Key Cities in Vote” for details if you need ’em.
This morning’s bottle line:
Our view is that the American Public has been educated in such a manner that we will not longer be able to properly formulate even a simple national policy agreement to the Main Question Globally, which is the new model of war and international conquest:
“Do you want to live in a country subject to foreign invasion and domination? Or, is the short-term benefit of some additional revenue sufficient compensation for the longer term loss of rights and freedoms to opposing systems?
I think the NDN, the AOC’s, and the Schiffies have already answered the question on your behalf. Because, tragically, at its core, the Democrat Party is anything BUT democratic.
Enjoy the distractions, denials, and obfuscations to come. Freedom, as we have experienced it so far, is an antiquated notion (along with privacy and state-control) and the Mexico border is just another mid-game move on the path to globalist control.
Have a nice day. (Please: Send this to everyone you know, especially your dumb friends who can’t frame the critical question for themselves without coaching.. or, get this on Mr. Snerdley’s reading list…)
(PS, there is a non-conflict answer to the problem, but we’ll save that for PN subscribers. And while we’re at it, any side bets on how my “organic search” traffic will drop now? Search engines are key set-pieces in the battle…)
How good, how durable?
New Orders New orders for manufactured durable goods in February decreased $4.2 billion or 1.6 percent to $250.6 billion, the U.S. Census Bureau announced today. This decrease, down following three consecutive monthly increases, followed a 0.1 percent January increase. Excluding transportation, new orders increased 0.1 percent. Excluding defense, new orders decreased 1.9 percent. Transportation equipment, also down following three consecutive monthly increases, drove the decrease, $4.3 billion or 4.8 percent to $86.0 billion.
Shipments Shipments of manufactured durable goods in February, up three of the last four months, increased $0.5 billion or 0.2 percent to $258.6 billion. This followed a 0.4 percent January decrease. Computers and electronic products, up four of the last five months, led the increase, $0.3 billion or 1.1 percent to $28.0 billion.

One of the best skills I ever picked up was learning how to “chart numbers in my head” because sometimes even Excel is too slow. To make it into the C-level, you need mental agility, visualization skills, and a finely honed ability to lie…but only for good, of course, lol.
