*Will Hillary Clinton’s “Open Borders” Dream End Up Deciding Election — for
Written by William F. Jasper

Deciding Election — for Trump?]
Hillary Clinton’s campaign strategists surely breathed a huge sigh of
relief when the 2nd Presidential Debate
without any mention of Clinton’s “open borders” comments, which had
recently been released by WikiLeaks. They know that, as with the Brexit vote
in the UK in June, the deadly reality of “open borders” could end up having
a much greater impact on Election Day than the pro-Hillary media polls are
showing. British voters revolted against the massive “Project Fear” campaign
waged by Prime Minister David Cameron, President Obama, and virtually all
of the British political, banking, academic, and media establishment.
British voters demanded a return of their independence and sovereignty.
Especially, they demanded control over their own borders, defying the
European Union’s claim of the right to decide who (and how many) may
migrate to Britain.
So, Team Hillary’s strategists were undoubtedly relieved when CNN’s
Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz did them a big favor in the second
presidential debate last Sunday by saving their candidate from having to
face her record and policies on open borders, immigration, refugees,
illegal alien amnesty, and trade treaties. Specifically, Cooper and Raddatz
made sure nobody brought up the matter of Hillary Clinton’s speech to
Brazilian bankers in which she told of her “dream” of an EU-style
hemispheric union of “open trade and open borders.”
The “open borders” speech was one of many Clinton bombshells to be dropped
by the WikiLeaks organization, in a dump of thousands of hacked e-mails,
two days before the debate. It goes to the heart of a timely and vital
issue that millions of American voters consider very important. However,
Cooper and Raddatz were intent on avoiding the open borders issue and
insisted on obsessing instead on the conveniently leaked video of Donald
Trump’s vulgar comments from more than a decade ago.
Specifically, in a speech to the Brazilian megabank, Banco Itau, Mrs.
Clinton said: "My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and
open borders, sometime in the future with energy that's as green and
sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every
person in the hemisphere."
The social chaos, terrorism, debt, banking crisis, currency crisis, and
other crises under which the European common market is disintegrating,
offer little to commend the European Union as a hemispheric model for
Americans. The ongoing migration tsunami that is wracking and ruining the
EU gives us a pretty good picture of what “open borders” look like.
Europeans are finding out that the ugly reality is far different from the
rosy pictures painted for decades by their politicians — politicians of the
same internationalist mold as Hillary Clinton. Borders matter; if you don’t
have them you can’t enforce them, and you don’t really even have a country.
Hillary Clinton is extremely vulnerable on this issue, even if we do not
experience another terror attack by Islamic extremists in this country
before the November election.
Clinton has leapfrogged over her former boss, President Obama, and called
for an even more radical Syrian refugee policy than his very unpopular
program. In fact, she called for more than six times the number of refugees
proposed by Obama. In a 2015 interview, she said the United States should
accept 65,000 refugees from Syria; President Obama’s Syrian refugee plan,
at the time, was for 10,000.
"We're facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II and I
think the United States has to do more," the former secretary of state said
on CBS's *Face the Nation*.
would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000
and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the
people that we would take in."
Of course, the “mechanisms for vetting people” comment was an obligatory
throwaway line meant to placate voters’ national security concerns. But it
was totally devoid of content, since our top security officials have
repeatedly pointed out
there is no way for us to properly vet these “refugees.” However, the
refugee issue is only one part of Hillary’s “open borders” equation; she
has also spent a political lifetime — as first lady, senator, secretary of
state, Clinton Foundation chieftess — promoting and supporting
amnesty, increased immigration, entitlements of every kind for immigrants
(legal and illegal) and fast-track citizenship, and fast-track voting.
Beyond the refugee/migrant/immigrant matters that are big-ticket items for
the large pool of voters Donald Trump is aiming at, there is the “open
trade” and “hemispheric common market” component that crosses party and
ideological lines, energizing huge numbers of conservative Republicans, Ron
Paul Libertarians, and Bernie Sanders Democrats and Independents. To this
broad swath of Americans, the WikiLeaks “open borders” leak confirms
Hillary’s firm commitment to the deadly trade deals such as the Trans-Pacific
Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)
For the past year and a half, Hillary has been trying to convince voters
that despite her role in helping craft the TPP and TTIP (as secretary of
state), publicly praising it more than 45 times (as even the pro-Clinton
having described the TPP as the “gold standard” of trade agreements. Much
of the opposition to the TPP, the TTIP, and other multilateral "trade"
agreements of this type has focused on the enormous economic harm that
NAFTA has done, especially in terms of millions of lost jobs and the loss
of America's once world-dominant manufacturing and technology base. Equally
important, though less understood, however, are the numerous attacks on
national sovereignty woven into the fabrics of NAFTA, TPP, and TTIP. Like
the various treaties that have incrementally transformed the EU into the
centralized and increasingly tyrannical behemoth it has become, these
regional "trade" treaties actually establish bodies with legislative,
executive, and judicial functions that are designed to gradually transform
into a regional government that will override our own constitutionally
limited government. Hillary Clinton is well aware of these dangers that she
has helped build into the TPP and TTIP. The believability of her convenient
flip-flop on this crucial issue is about zero; she can be counted on to
flip again, if she gets to the Oval Office. Her current anti-TPP stance is
most certainly her “public position,” at the moment, but what does she
really intend to do on the matter? One of the other inconvenient (for
Clinton) WikiLeaks revelations concerned her admission of duplicity, in one
of her high-paid speeches to high-end investors, asserting that politicians
need to be two-faced, having "both a public and a private position."
*Project Fear/Project Smear*
The political/business/media/academic elites that targeted the Brexit vote
for defeat with “Project Fear” are the same combined forces that have
targeted Donald Trump with Project Smear
the Brexit victory, an obviously chastened Richard Haass, president of the
world government-promoting, pro-EU, pro-open borders Council on Foreign
Hillary Clinton's campaign, this is something of a warning not to
underestimate this disaffection, not to underestimate political and
Hillary Clinton, who, while secretary of state, famously said (in the
presence of her “good friend” Richard Haass) that she depended upon the CFR
to tell her what to do and what to think (see video of her confession here
is obviously listening to the advice of Haass. She has flip-flopped on TPP
and has sort of flip-flopped on migration-refugees. She is trying to appeal
to all sides; appealing for the Hispanic/immigrant vote by supporting
“comprehensive immigration reform” — the longtime code phrase for amnesty
and open borders — while at the same time attempting to appeal to Middle
America by insisting she intends to implement stringent vetting of
refugees/immigrants. The open question is how many American voters will
believe her new “public position” on open borders — and how many will
believe — or be influenced by/distracted by — Project Smear.
