Would Obama Trump The Donald by pardoning illegals?

With every passing day, Donald Trump's chances of winning the presidency increase.

Hillary Clinton's campaign is floundering.  She has no message aside from "Elect me; I'm a woman."  She is hated by 30 to 40% of Democratic voters who prefer Bernie Sanders – or, for that matter, anybody but her.  Her e-mail problems are growing worse – from the inspector general's recent report to the ongoing FBI investigation.  And Trump has indicated that he is willing to use every single bit of dirt from her 30-year-long trail of sleaze against her in the general campaign.

One of Trump's primary issues, and an issue that is the cause of much of his popularity, is his promise to end illegal immigration and deport some 12 to 20 million illegals already in the U.S.  It's an issue that resonates broadly with the white working class, whose standard of living has been steadily eroded by offshoring jobs to China and Mexico.  The Obama administration's policy of letting illegals from a third-world country stay in the U.S. to compete with native-born Americans for jobs and government benefits adds insult to injury.

As Trump's chances of winning increase, it's time to start asking a pretty important question: what will a lame-duck Obama do between November and January if Trump does actually win?

My guess is that Obama will pardon a substantial number (if not all) of the illegals to sabotage Trump's deportation plan.

Here's why I think it could happen.  First, "Improper Entry by Alien" is a pardonable offense against the United States.  Eight U.S. Code Sec. 1325 defines it as a crime with prison sentences ranging from 6 months to 2 years; thus, the president does have the power under Article II of the Constitution to grant pardons for it.

Second, Obama has consistently sided with foreigners against American interests.  Refusal to deport large numbers of illegals is one example, but there are numerous others.

Obama told Russian president Medvedev that he would be "more flexible after his last election."  His national security adviser recently admitted that the press and the public were intentionally hoodwinked on the Iran nuclear deal.  Obama bowed to Saudi princes and apologized to Iran for the 1953 Mossadegh coup.  He bypassed Congress and allied with the British and French to attack Libya.  He announced in Berlin in 2008 that he is a "citizen of the world."

Obama went to Nelson Mandela's funeral – but spurned Justice Scalia's.  He claimed to be born in Kenya to his own publisher, instigating the "birther controversy" he later snidely mocked.

Obama identifies with third-worlders, not Americans.  It would fit a pattern for him to choose the side of Mexican illegals over American citizens and over U.S. immigration law.

Third, there is precedent for a mass pardon.  In 1977, Jimmy Carter pardoned hundreds of thousands of individuals who evaded the draft during the Vietnam War.

Could Obama trump Trump by issuing a blanket lame-duck pardon?  He could, and I think he would.  The Democratic Party has abandoned the white native-born American working class.  Its core constituencies are liberal whites with a globalist outlook and minority racial groups who vote on the basis of identity politics.  Pardoning illegals after a Trump victory would strengthen the 21st-century Democratic Party base and cement Obama's legacy on the globalist, anti-American, anti-white, pro-minority left.  It's a win-win for him.

The possibility that Obama's last official act will be to "fundamentally transform" America by making 12 to 20 million third-worlders permanent residents of the U.S. is something to think about more and more as November approaches and the Trump juggernaut rolls on.
