As a caravan of Central American immigrants heads toward the United States (and not coincidentally the midterm election heading up, too/alo), Hair Füror has threatened to send troops to close the southern U.S. border which will effectively scrap the newly minted NAFTA 2: Electric Boogaloo:

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie (emphasis mine):

“President Donald Trump on Thursday amped up his focus on immigration ahead of the midterm elections by claiming, without evidence, that Democrats were behind a group of Central American migrants trying to reach the U.S. ‘This will be an election of Kavanaugh, the caravan, law and order and common sense,’ Trump said during a political rally in Missoula, Mont., referring to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

“Trump, flirting with conspiracy theories about the possibility that the migrants are being paid off, said money was being ‘passed through’ those very people.

“‘Now we’re starting to find out — and I won’t say it 100 percent, I’ll put it a little tiny question mark on the end, but we’re not going to get it, but we have the fake news back there, fake news — a lot of money has been passing through people to try to get to the border by Election Day, because they think that is a negative for us,’ the president told the crowd. ‘Number one, they are being stopped and number two, regardless, that’s our issue.’”

OK, so let’s get to some facts right right now:

  • The caravan is a reference to 3,000 Hondurans heading through Guatemala to Mexico and then the U.S. border.
  • There’s no evidence that Democrats are backing the caravan.
  • AP calls closing the border “a nearly unthinkable move that would disrupt hundreds of thousands of legal freight, vehicle and pedestrian crossings each day.”

Hair Füror can say that this is an election of “Kavanaugh, the caravan, law and order, and common sense,” but it really is an election about migration, MS-13, media, and Mueller.

They’ve got nothing to campaign on, so they are using white people’s fear, and it will probably work yet again.

    I may be mistaken but I have heard this caravan is an annual event that is symbolic in nature. They have no intention of crossing the boarder only going up to it.

    I believe as a protest for AMerican Exceptionslism in Central America.

      Oh, great, so when the caravan does their Kabuki protest march and stops just short of the border Donnie T will proclaim a huge victory. And his laughing minions will eat that up buy that, too. Donnie T has yet another group of customers that are buying what he is selling. But this time he is selling product that is harmful to everyone, not only the purchasers.
      So now I’m wondering what was being said, on the other side of the Berlin Wall, about any crowds that happened to gather on the western side. I bet it didn’t play too well in some circles, since I read that a lot of the crowds on both sides used to be family members sort of waving at each other across the wall, but I do wonder what the party line was.

    Like I said, it’s the full blown effort to save the Senate, by scaring the crap out of the white Americans who are racist pigs, and there are more than enough of them to make the plan successful.
    And with the Senate and the White House under GOP control, Trump is home free until 2020. He cannot be convicted in impeachment proceedings, the court packing can proceed apace, and any progressive legislation passed by the House can blocked by the Senate.
    This is MItch’s plan more than it is Trump’s. Mitch is not a Trump loyalist; for him Trump is a useful idiot in his lifelong quest to strip the public sector to the bare walls and restrict government power to doing what he’s always believed governments are for, which is to protect and serve capital.
