"The stuff Hillary’s Dreams Are Made Of"
By Jared E. Petersen
Though the Coach’s Team prefers to post only original pieces and those by staff writers, this article by Jared E. Petersen is important enough to warrant presentation to the greatest possible number of readers. The article was originally published on October, 20, 2016 on the American Thinker website. The Coach's Team is posting the article in its entirety.
Courtesy of what should be an explosive WikiLeaks disclosure we finally know Hillary Clinton’s fondest dream: An America without borders. It was an amazing confession by Clinton to Brazilian bankers of what the Left desperately longs for but avoids saying in public.
If this huge gaffe had received a fraction of the media attention it merits, Clinton’s campaign might be over. Even the clueless NeverTrump Rich Lowry noticed it and its potentially poisonous ramifications for Clinton. As an aside, one wonders why he and his other benighted friends in the NT crowd (Will, Krauthammer, Goldberg et al), don’t notice the terminal demographic problems HRC’s sure pursuit of her dream will cause their future ideologically pure conservative presidential candidate.
If the Trump team has the judgment, guts and talent to give this gift from Clinton the full Lee Atwater treatment, the unpleasant consequences for “Open Borders Hillary” could be huge, even at this late date.
It goes without saying that America’s Goebbels media has made no mention of this revelation -- potentially the most momentous to date from Wikileaks. So, if the electorate is going to learn about Clinton’s astounding dream of America’s dissolution, Trump’s campaign will have to hit her gaffe hard, plain and often.
The words are out of her mouth -- Clinton will never again be able to credibly claim any intention to secure the nation’s borders or to stop or even reduce the massive illegal invasion of America that will be the enduring legacy of the Obama years.
No prior major party candidate for the American presidency has come close to expressing the goal of abolishing America’s borders, more a nightmare than a dream to the overwhelming majority of Americans, 83%, according to Pew Research.
We all know that in her vision of an America without borders, Clinton sees enduring one party rule by the Left, while America’s corporate and banking elite envisions low labor costs forever.
We also know that middle and working class Americans see something else: An America into which will flood, entirely unscreened, tens, eventually hundreds of millions of the more than 600 million inhabitants of the western hemisphere south of the Rio Grande, plus anyone who manages to get to any of those countries from the terrorist-producing parts of the world.
And from this massive flow, that it is they who will bear the enormous downside: depressed wages, fewer jobs, overwhelmed public schools, exploding social welfare claims, more drugs, more gang warfare, more crime, and more acts of Islamic terrorism by Islamists for whom Mexico, Central America and South America are only a cheap flight away.
In short, most Americans see Hillary Clinton’s dream of abolished borders, now tattooed on her forehead but covered by media makeup, as the abolition of their country.
Trump’s campaign needs to help Hillary remove the makeup, so her Open Borders tattoo can be seen in all its ugliness. In turning its campaign spotlight on this huge new issue, there is much more for Trump to work with than the mere dream itself. From another speech, one of her infamous closed door $225,000 Goldman Sachs pay-offs, we learn Mrs. Clinton’s further belief that those who favor limitations on immigration are un-American, that all those who don’t share her dream of a nation without borders are un-American. That’s a lot of un-American Americans.
Possibly never before in American presidential contests, certainly never before in the post-World War II era, has such a damning dual revelation about the real views of a major party presidential candidate surfaced -- the first, on a position that puts her at odds with the overwhelming majority of the electorate on the central issue of the campaign, the second that expresses more clearly than anything she has ever said her contempt for her fellow citizens.
Trump’s managers and ad writers need to get to work on Clinton’s now in-the-open, undeniable desire to end America, and on her related belief that the vast majority of her countrymen are un-American because they’d prefer not to.
Here, for the Trump campaign, are some of the most electorally pertinent facts:
As the aforementioned Pew Research September 30, 2015 survey numbers show, 83% of Americans believed that immigration should either be maintained at present levels (34%) or decreased (49%). These numbers include the following breakdown as to who holds the deplorable view that immigration should be reduced from present levels: Republicans (67%). Democrats (33%). Though Pew did not ask, presumably most of this 83% of Americans would also take at least slight offense to learn that Hillary Clinton considers them un-American.
But even if -- perhaps especially if -- Trump got in some good jabs, his campaign needs to follow up hard and often.
Out-of-control immigration is immensely unpopular across the country. Especially in light of this latest bombshell disclosure about Hillary’s deep longing for open borders, it’s the issue that could still affect large portions of the electorate.
This issue brings Trump back to his beginnings: He surged dramatically into the lead for the Republican nomination and never looked back when he got clear, bold and tough on securing America’s borders. As the race comes to its close Hillary has revived the issue and served it up on a gold plate.
All that’s left is for the Trump campaign is to run with the gift. Hard, clear, tough and often.
