If You Find Yourself in an Immigration Hole, Stop Digging

This old saw is called the “Law of holes.” Meaning if you find yourself in an unstainable position, change course rather than pushing on and making the situation worse. At first glance, this advice could be directed toward Donald Trump. Each week he says something more outrageous than the week before, creating dyspepsia within the ranks of the media, the left, and the Republican establishment. Shouldn’t he change course with his bombastic comments and moderate his position to that of a more electable candidate, say Jeb Bush?

Yet Trump continues to rise in the polls, even after his latest outrageous comments about Muslim immigration. The “law of holes” I refer to is not about Donald Trump, but instead about Barack Obama and his approach to immigration and radical Islam.

    Obama isn’t in a hole. He is succeeding in his project of fundamentally transforming America through immigration to overwhelm the tradition population as he makes the US non-American and non-Christian.

      That’s exactly it and after this long one would expect “journalists” and “commentators” to be maybe even slightly clued in to the trajectory of Obama’s decisions, appointments and policies. What else could Obama do to demonstrate that his interests are not America’s?

      … and I’m still at a loss as to what “outrageous” comment Trump made that wasn’t also perfect common sense.

    Funny how they constantly claim that Trump says so many “outrageous” things. The truly outrageous claims are “Islam is a religion of peace”, and all the claims that Muslim immigration causes no problems. In fact I cannot ever recall hearing anything from the Left that was not outrageous.

      Trump only says the truth. Most people in the western world agree. UK Cameron calls Trump stupid in Parliament, imagine that. I imagine the UK PM Cameron Eating crow when Cameron meets President Trump.
