Senator Kamala Devi Harris-Emhoff -- announces as POTUS CANDIDATE

Senator Kamala Harris is now officially running for the 2020 Democratic POTUS nomination.  Unfortunately, she's dead in the water -- she is not a POTUS COUSIN... not even close.

Her only hope is that one of her parents has ties back to the British Nobility.

Unlike Trump, Harris has no child and therefore has no child who is a strong POTUS COUSIN.  But even here, Trump himself shares an ancestral grandparent with ALL the past presidents (except Van Buren and Eisenhower -- but their genealogies are limited and do not extend far enough back to confidently declare they are not also part of the ancient founding family).

Eisenhower had married into the POTUS CLAN -- Mamie Eisenhower as a direct descendant of the progenitor of the ancient founding family that has ruled the successful nations of both Europe and America for over a thousand years.

Harris' Democratic Ticket competition, Elizabeth Warren, not only is a POTUS COUSIN, but is also married to one.  As such, Warren has a stronger ancestral claim than Trump, and so, in a head-to-head contest, Warren should easily defeat Trump.  She should -- unless the Democratic Leadership acts in a way that casts doubt on the Democratic Party.  In that regard, Nancy Pelosi has gone full-on Ronald Reagan by opposing the Fence/Wall and supporting Amnesty, along with what can only be Open Border politics which would have Mexico treated like Canada. 
Not a bad idea, if not for the fact that Mexico has a long history of Criminal Cartels, and just saw the death and injury of a hundred people when,  what is common in Mexico, the theft of gasoline directly from pipelines resulted in the explosion of that pipeline.   Just imagine the open border bringing those thieves to the KEYSTONE XL pipeline and causing an explosion which contaminated the largest farming aquifer in North America -- bringing an end to American Agricultural dominance.
How important is the POTUS COUSIN EFFECT?
Consider the attacks on POTUS-45, Donald John TRUMP, and why they have, after two solid years, gone nowhere.  Could it be because, where he impeached by the House and convicted by the Senate, the result would be POTUS PENCE?
Mike Pence is NOT a POTUS COUSIN -- neither is his wife -- and America has a hard time dealing with people who are not part of the Ancestral Leadership Clan.  In the case of Pence, it would mean the end of the Nation. 
Harris might not be that bad, She rightfully supports Dreamers -- the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program -- who are, as mentioned in the Trum[p Card book series, Americans without status because they were brought here illegally as children.... something that must be corrected to give them Citizenship status.

ELIZABETH WARREN WOULD BEAT TRUMP, if Schumer wasn't messing things up.

Well, as we move into day 28 of the longest Government Shutdown on record, it appears that Elizabeth Warren's POTUS COUSIN based qualification for being President -- and thereby becoming the first female POTUS -- have increased.

A video of her drinking beer brought her husband, Bruce Hartling MANN, into the picture.  And with that, a look at his family line.  It appears Bruce and Elizabeth are a traditional marry-back.  Both are POTUS COUSINS and direct descendants of the ancestors of 42 of the nations 44 Presidents (45 by an administration count in which 22 & 24 were the same person).

It appears that Warren is descendant along two lines and Mann along three -- with one line in common, but where all four lines come from the same parent.  Trump comes from the same two lines as Warren, but her spouse gives her the historic boost.

Trump's boost is derived from his short marriage to Marla Maples and their daughter, Tiffany.  Marla has four connections, two of which match Donald, and therefore Tiffany has four solid connections which she brings to the game, and which will -- if she decides to follow that route -- give her a distinctly traditional, subliminal voter advantage.  Tiffany becomes eligible to be POTUS in 2029, making 2032 the earliest she can run for the office.  She might well be President in 2052.

But for now, a contest between Trump and Warren would -- given the negative publicity aimed at Trump, the historic march gives Warren the advantage.

Now, where does Schumer play into the game?

Seem that the Government Shutdown will depress GDP and send the nation into a Recession -- the whole process can be stopped simply by giving Trump $5.7 Billion for the Wall/Fence which SCHUMER had voted for when the 2006 Secure Fence Act was passed and signed into law by GW BUSH.
That law was predicated on allocation $50 Billion over 25-years for completion and maintenance (with supporting services) of a fence along the southern border --the first 650-miles immediately funded and completed during the Obama Administration (Obama having earlier been a Senator who voted for the law).

Democrats have indicated $1.3 Billion is acceptable -- but that's less than the average of $2Billion associated with the 2006 law.  Moreover, the unwillingness to add the additional $4.4Billion has already begun to depress economic growth and therefore will depress revenues in the form of Taxes and other Federal revenue sources.
That loss has already been estimated at $18Billion, with updated data indicating the true loss could be double or triple that.  Thus, the Democratic battle being waged by SCHUMER says he is willing to spend $18Billion to deny Trump $4.4 Billion and risk the possibility that he will deny the Government $54Billion -- ten times the total appropriation needed for the Fence that Schumer approved in 2006.

Trump has no reason to yield.  In the image given us by THE GAME OF THRONES, it falls upon a Senator to "Bend the Knee" to the President, rather than a President "Bend the Knee" to a minority Senator.

If the Democrats can be blamed for the Recession -- and logically they would be -- any Candidate would carry the full negative ... Carter lost to Reagan because of the Economy and his being weak on Iran.  Clinton won against Bush because he worked with the axiom "It's the Economy Stupid".  Damage the economy while opposing funding legislation you voted for, and the voters will turn on you.

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN - related legislation

The following is from legislation introduced on the very first day of the 116th Congress -- 12-days into the Government Shutdown over giving Trump a one-time amount of $5.7Billion to complete work related to the 2006 SECURE FENCE ACT opposed by Nancy Pelosi, but fully supported by Chuck Schumer, (and then Senators) Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
The legislation is entitled, “Strengthening America's Security in the Middle East Act of 2019", and effectively funds a Border Wall between Israel and Jordon. 
(7) The 2016 Memorandum of Understanding reflected United States support of Foreign Military Financing (FMF) grant assistance to Israel over the 10-year period beginning in fiscal year 2019 and ending in fiscal year 2028. FMF grant assistance would be at a level of $3,300,000,000 annually, totaling $33 billion, the largest single pledge of military assistance ever and a reiteration of the seven-decade, unshakeable, bipartisan commitment of the United States to Israel’s security."
The next paragraph states:
(8) The Memorandum of Understanding also reflected United States support for funding for cooperative programs to develop, produce, and procure missile, rocket, and projectile defense capabilities over a 10-year period beginning in fiscal year 2019 and ending in fiscal year 2028 at a level of $500 million per year, totaling $5 billion.
Thus we have the House saying it happily provides funds equal to those needed for domestic border security -- spread over 10 years -- to introduce Weapons of Mass Destruction to the Middle East.  GEE and that was after starting a 17-year and counting war because of alleged but disproved WMDs in the Middle East.

From the proposed act, we also learn that Obama and Congress had,  "On August 16, 2007, ....signed a 10-year Memorandum of Understanding on United States military assistance to Israel. The total assistance over the course of this understanding would equal $30 billion."

So it seems, as important as Israel might be to America's stance in the Middle East, it is actually ten or times as important as a proven successful domestic economic (and potential military) security act which has been the law for a dozen years.


Trump already has authority and money to build his wall -- he just hasn't been reminded of it.

Curiously the Corps of Engineers could build the wall as a normal War Games exercise.
Scenario: enemy troops headed for position, their air attack capacity is neutralized but ground troops and vehicles a major threat.
Goal: build fortifications that would stop troops in foot and any vehicles that reach a key perimeter area.
Method: standard barbed wire on anti-Trump barricade, with metal personnel barrier that can stop conventional rifle or pistol gunfire.

There is a need to test structure, and it would have real application if the war in the Middle East were to spread past Turkey and into Europe where NATO would need to respond quickly.
Clearly, the southern USA border is an ideal test ground for America Troops to practice construction and, migrants would serve to provide real world test of efficiency against a determined but unarmed force.
The War Games budget and Engineer training Budgets would pay for it from allocated funds.

If the USA can engage in war games around the world, certainly there is nothing improper in engaging in related work within the USA, with an eye to transferring the developed skills to the future theater of operations where they might be needed.

No emergency declaration is needed.  Not goes Congress have authority to challenge peaceful military training.

Of course, Trump could, since it is an exercise in preparation for a NATO related threat, use funds earmarked for NATO.  He could even pulls troops out of Europe to train, and thundering their pay etc back into the American economy.
If NATO nations wish to complain, they can provide the  materials and test training areas necessary for the exercise to be conducted in Europe -- and they can enjoy the disruption to their open border economy as the military deals those borders with steel barriers the EU will need to provide locally as part of the exercise.
Or NATO can state clearly they do not sarcaStic associated with protecting their borders from land or sea attack.  And America will henceforth cease involvement in anything related to such a threat.  Effectively telling America it does not need it as part of NATO and Europe will protect itself from all threats internal or external.

Government Shutdown analogy

By 8 january, we had heard many things about the wall, fence, barrier, or whatever you wish to call it.
Then we began to hear about those who will be harmed or have their lives disrupted.
The blame game kicked in with polls and Dump Trump commentators having fun.
But consider this analogy:

The owner of a rowboat assures a swimmer he'll make it to the other side of the lake. 
The swimmer swims, and others swim too. 
On the far shore there is The Official Lifeguard (legislators who must pass legislation) who seem to have trouble doing their job, and a new batch has just showed up...they hold in their hands a life preserver with a rope -- they can toss it so far.
The swimmer swims, and, as he comes within the distance of the door, he gets into trouble.  But the guy in the boat needs a oar in order to save The Swimmer.
The lifeguard yells about how stupid they were to attempt the swim and the guy in the boat yells "toss the life preserver or toss me an oar" - - The life guards yell back, "YOU PROMISED  them he'd make it, pull him into your boat"
 "But he's within reach of you, toss the life preserver and pull him ashore...or toss me an air I can use"
 "We do that, he'll made it, and you'll boast you kept your promise"

Now, if the swimmer drowns, which will happen if neither does anything, who will the family blame?  The guy in the boat who was there before the swimmer was in reach of the shore, but lacks an oar that will let him save the swimmer, or the guy in the shore who refused to toss the life preserver or  an oar?

The swimmer's dad has a single shot rifle, is an excellent marksman, and will kill the one he blames for his kids death.  Which will be kill? 
The guy in the boat -- who also needs the rope or an oar tossed in order to rescue the swimmer, or the guy on shore who refused to toss either the oar or life preserver?

The spectators say the guy in the boat, who made the promise, will get the bullet.  But, so long as someone dies, they make money.

DOES THE FENCE WORK -- OBJECTIVE EVIDENCE PROVES IT ALREADY HAS ?


What can we derive from this MARCH to MARCH 2000-2018 charge of know illegal crossings based on apprehensions as presented by FactCheck.org?
The Secure Fence Act was passed at the end of 2006, and 613 miles of the fence were completed by April 2009
NOTE that, with Trump's Hardline on Immigration, the arrests had fallen to under 4.25% of their 220,000 pre-fence peak amount as presented in the chart accompanying the Fact Check article.

Looking at a second chart in that presentation:

As we seen Reagan's anti-fence stance and amnesty served to enhance illegal crossings.  The Terrorist attack on 9/11 caused a drop -- by raising questions of safety in America -- and then Bush's attack on Terrorists restored confidence in safety and a resurgence of illegal entry that came to an end with the introduction of the Secure Fence Act and construction of roughly 650 miles of fence along the 2000 mile border. 
We see a further drop during the period of tough talk about undocumented immigrants who entered illegally -- trash-talk by Senator Chuck Schumer and President Barack Obama.  The drop was enhanced when Trump demonstrated he would continue the Trash-talk and back it up with more Wall or Fence and meaningful prosecutions.

That's all The Fence caused -- a drop from 1.65 MILLION to a mere 300,000.  And with it came the significance of those who overstay their LEGAL VISA -- many of whom are actually just between papers.
It happens with Fiancee VISA holders who marry within the 90-days and need to wait a year for their papers to be adjusted to full legal citizenship path status, and with those whose weddings are delayed and so carry them beyond the 90-day marriage period -- sometimes resulting in their having to exit and reenter the country as already married spouses, and other times simply waiting for the hearings to whatever that will allow them to remain within the States as their paperwork is adjusted by an understaffed and overworked Immigration and Naturalization Service. 
How understaffed and overworked? During the days of Ellis Island, immigrants could be processed in hours, now, as we see at the Mexican border, they need to wait a year just to get an appointment to have a hearing -- a year after that.

Newest Political Movement REAGAN DEMOCRATS

 REAGAN DEMOCRATS mare alleged Democrats who espouse Reagan politics.  Like Ronald Reagan in 1980, they are opposed to the Democrat movement to construct a border fence to control access to the United States and help assist border agents in the control of smuggling and human trafficking.

Opposition to the "Trump WALL" is actually opposed to the Democrat's 2006 SECURE FENCE ACT.   These people, the REAGAN DEMOCRATS, want open borders to allow undocumented entry into the country.  They effectively oppose Port of Entry controls and everything associated with Passports and Visa requirements.  But they need to start small, so they are opposing the Border Control -- and a century ago would have opposed Ellis Island - which was the busiest immigrant inspection station from 1892 until 1954, when entry by airplane effectively replaced passenger ships.

During the period it was functional, Ellis Island served as the gateway for over 12 million immigrants -- today, the Pew Research Center reports that, in 2007, there were more than 12 million illegal or undocumented immigrants living in the United States.  Unlike those who passed through Ellis Island, these undocumented individuals have no desire to become citizens -- they are here to work and send money back to their native country (effectively undermining a normal economic structure); some would seek citizenship, but their method of entry shows that they are unwilling to, or legally prohibited from, seeking it.

The year 2007 was the peak for undocumented immigrants -- a fact that underscores their goal of bleeding of the economy.  As we all know, 2007/8 was the Great Recession and served to prevent them from having even illegal work.  And make no mistake, their work is purely illegal and, by definition, criminal.  The 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) makes that perfectly clear, by restricting the right to work, or employ foreign-born individuals, to American citizens and aliens who are authorized to work in the United States.  Under this law, "all employers are required to verify both the identity and employment eligibility of all regular, temporary employees, temporary agency personnel, and student employees hired after November 6, 1986, and complete and retain a one-page form (INS Form I-9) documenting this verification."

In a comic demonstration of Reagan Democratic hypocrisy, those who are seeking to flood the nation with undocumented workers are also investigating the managers of Trump's New Jersey Golf Course for arranging papers -- work permits and Social Security numbers -- for undocumented workers employed by them.

It has been indicated that the Social Security numbers were bogus -- which begs the Question: "How did the IRS and Social Security Administration handle the funds received that were associated with those allegedly bogus numbers?  Does the IRS lack any and all means to verify numbers when taxes are filed?  Does the Social Security Administration "POCKET" funds for which there are no valid numbers?

Will the REAGAN DEMOCRATS even care about the apparent GOVERNMENT FRAUD inferred by the mishandling of SS contributions for which there are no valid numbers -- and the gross failure to report the invalid numbers to the FBI for investigation?

REAGAN DEMOCRATS -- apparently headed up by the likes of Chuck Schumer -- are inherently crooked, and so will NOT launch an investigation into the IRS & SSA mishandling or embezzlement of the contributions.

Give 12 million illegals, each earning a basic living illegally -- but using bogus SSA numbers, there must be TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS being stolen from the SSA fund.

Think about it, the average wage is $50,000 per year -- if all illegals were workers on bogus SS numbers, 12 million illegals making that much would account for Social Security benefit contributions in excess of 13% of $60 Billion.  Where did that money go?  
The IRS audits companies, the SS#'s are on the filings, along with the wages paid ... where did that money go?  Who has been embezzing it?
