In the 12 hours before landfall on Tuesday, Willa will encounter higher wind shear of 15 – 20 knots, and the storm will also begin to interact with the high terrain of Mexico. These factors should lead to steady and possibly rapid weakening just before landfall. Still, landfall as a major Category 3 hurricane is quite possible, as predicted by NHC. Most of our reliable intensity models, with the exception of the HMON model, predict that Willa will be a Category 2 or weaker storm at landfall, though.
I literally can't stop laughing. Are you saying many people have not asserted that?
Well, since you clearly desire that I just repeat my OP, let's include the line you did not repeat:
If this is a well funded and organized stunt designed to coincide with the mid-terms, who would be behind it? Who is reaping the most political benefit from talking about it? Trump and the GOP. Predictably, would't you say?
The caravan in April was good for energizing the right-wing base for weeks, the wave of unaccompanied minors in 2015-2016 was good for months of "invasion" narrative.
If it's a mid-term stunt, doesn't seem likely one to have been concocted to benefit the Democrats.
So where was I dishonest again? Are either of those statements untrue?
Your juvenile replies in this thread are simply not worth very much consideration.
All you've got is shrill protestations, name-calling, baseless accusations and sophomoric logic.
Take for example the question you seem so interested in me addressing. You ask, "who is reaping the most political benefit from talking about the caravan", as if the outcome by definition FORCES the intent.
More likely, once again, some on the left planned a show of histrionics that appears to be back-firing. Just like the Kavanaugh boondoggle.
You fool no one.
My child uses better logical arguments.

I just have a bad feeling this is headed for a violent ending no matter how many kid gloves Trump and the GOP use to handle it. And that violence is by design. It is the goal

Even if they do get into the U.S., that's .00002 of our entire population. You guys are letting the media form your opinions for you. That's 45,000 Americans against every one of these people in this "caravan".
