Josh Kraushaar’s article highlights an old acronym I learned years decades ago. The applicable acronym is GIGO. GIGO stands for Garbage In, Garbage Out. It fits Mr. Kraushaar’s article perfectly.

Specifically, Kraushaar’s article states “President Trump is stuck on 259 electoral votes, and his campaign is trying to scheme any way possible to get him back to a majority. That’s the takeaway from a new Politico story outlining the Trump campaign’s intent to target three Democratic-leaning states—New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Nevada—as part of its battleground state strategy.”

Relying on anything Politico pumps out is foolish. First, this analysis relies on President Trump losing Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The odds of that happening aren’t high. Winning Michigan alone puts Trump over the top. It seems likely that Trump will do that. Because he’s fought hard to bring manufacturing jobs back to Michigan, blue collar voters are overwhelmingly supporting Trump.

Assuming that Trump will lose all three ‘Blue Wall’ states is foolish. The blue collar workers will turn out in just as big of numbers in 2020 as they did in 2016. Trump kept his promises to them. Further, the choice will come down to either keeping in place the policies that are currently producing fantastic economic growth or reverting back to the policies of the previous 8 years, when industries were hurt and economic growth was pathetic.

There aren’t enough stupid people who will vote to wreck this great economy. And let there be no doubt. If a Democrat is elected president in 2020, this fantastic economy will be as good as dead.

That’s before we start talking about the Democrats’ position on immigration. Despite some Democrats’ claim that they’re interested in border security, it’s obvious that they aren’t. If Democrats were serious about border security, we wouldn’t have had 144,000 apprehensions along the border in May. If anyone thinks that President Trump will get hurt electorally for his immigration policies, they aren’t paying attention.

There’s no doubt that President Trump will highlight the Democrats’ position of doing nothing to secure the border. Democrats will protest but anyone with half a brain knows that Democrats haven’t written a single piece of legislation that fixes this crisis. And make no mistake about whether it’s a crisis.

Let’s talk to an expert (rather than a windbag politician) about this. Here’s what John Sanders said about the situation:

“We are in a full-blown emergency, and I cannot say this stronger: the system is broken,” said acting CBP Commissioner John Sanders. Sanders said his agency has detained more than 680,000 border-crossers in the past eight months, noting that the total is “more than the population of Miami.”

This statement from US Customs & Border Protection is must reading, especially for windbag politicians. If Democrats that’re serving on the House Problem Solvers Caucus don’t take this seriously, they’ll be one-term wonders and Nancy Pelosi won’t even be the Minority Leader anymore.

    And as I hear it, the Dems just passed a full-blown amnesty for everybody, including known criminals.

  • Gary Gross says:

    I’ll have more on the subject of immigration tonight. You won’t want to miss it.

  • Nick says:

    I really like Trump. I just hate how members of his own party are stabbing him in the back. I would like him to force the airlines to bring back aircraft maintenance that’s currently outsourced to foreign countries such as China, Brazil, and El Salvador. Also, I would like to see him get that border wall complete and pass mandatory E-Verify ASAP.
