A new federal program profiles and surveils ordinary US citizen travelers who otherwise have no legitimate reason for being profiled. The biggest irony, as several Air Marshals observed, is that that potentially illegal program which infringes on the privacy and constitutional rights of US citizens, is also being paid for by those very same US citizens. Just like with the NSA.
Border crossers are clogging the asylum system, flooding homeless shelters and are being moved out of college dormitories to make way for students. But Trudeau has a new solution: Move hundreds of immigrants into hotels where they will live at public expense. Canada could halt the illegal crossing with the stroke of a pen- but it won’t because it doesn’t serve the people, but has a different master.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez advocates for for free health care, free college tuition, subsidized housing, open borders, tax-supported renewable energy, and a minimum wage for everyone. To fund these programs, she calls for the ultra-wealthy should pay their fair share, and corporations should pay a 28% tax rate, to collect $2 trillion.

She is totally clueless about economic fundamentals in spite of her degree in Economics at Boston College – or perhaps it is BECAUSE of her degree.
The Kochs are threatening to support Democrats in the midterm if their Republican opponents oppose Open Borders and job-killing ‘free trade’ deals that benefit multinational corporations.
