Donald Trump Presidency: U.N. Warns Of Refugee Crisis Worse Than Syria’s

imageNEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCHR) warned today that the international community is about to face a refugee crisis worse than what’s happening in Syria — and it involves Americans!

With a Donald Trump presidency looming, hundreds of thousands of Americans are already readying plans for a massive exodus, fleeing to the north and south of the border (Canada and Mexico), as well as to countries in Europe and Asia.

Already, Canadan Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced that his country is building a wall along the US.-Canada border in anticipation of the exodus to North America.  Trudeau said Canada will make Trump pay for the cost of building the wall.

The United States Post Office (USPO) is reporting being overwhelmed by both new and renewal passport applications, while foreign consular offices throughout the United States have confirmed a spike in visa applications.

It is estimated that as many as 150 Million Americans, mostly Democrats, are expected to flee the U.S. starting in November this year, right after the presidential elections. Compare that with 4.6 Million Syrian refugees!

Among those who have reportedly applied for foreign visas are Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz, a Canadian American, and Marco Rubio, a Cuban American.

Unconfirmed reports say that the Obamas have purchased a home in Nyang’oma Kogelo, Kenya, birthplace of Barack’s father.

LOS ANGELES, California ( The Adobo Chronicles ) – Technology has definitely caught up with America’s new generation of teenagers. Or is it the other way around?

Today, the Field Poll released a new nationwide opinion survey involving 5,000 Americans throughout the country — aged 13 to 19 — asking them one open-ended question: “What do you know about the G7?”

The Field Poll, or the California Poll, was established in 1947 by Mervin Field and has operated continuously as an independent, non-partisan, media-sponsored public opinion news service. They cover a wide range of political and social topics.

An overwhelming 85% of respondents thought that G7 was Google’s new smart phone.

Only 5% correctly answered that the G7  was the seven-nation informal bloc of industrialized democracies that meet annually to discuss issues such us global economic governance, international security and energy policy. Even then, none of those who answered correctly could name all 7 countries — United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom.  The G7 has just concluded its 2015 summit meeting in the Bavarian Alps in Germany.

The remaining 10% of respondents did not venture to give any answer.

Because of the overwhelming numbers, the poll has a zero percent margin of error.

The last major poll of American teens was almost a decade ago. That survey found that as many  as 70% of young adults  could not locate Iran or Israel on the map.

Remember this 2007 Miss Teen USA moment?

San Jose, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Quick, without googling it: who is your state’s lieutenant governor?  Apparently 95% of Americans don’t know who their lieutenant governors are.  Worse, the same Americans can’t name the Vice President of the United States.

In a new survey conducted by The Adobo Chronicles, only 5% of the 1,000 individuals  questioned knew who their lieutenant governor is.  The same 5% also correctly named Joe Biden as the sitting Vice President.  Not surprisingly, all of those who answered correctly were newly-naturalized citizens who recently took and passed the U.S. citizenship exam.

As a bonus question, the survey asked respondents if they knew who LeBron James and Kim Kardashian were. One hundred percent answered in the affirmative.

The survey has margin of error of plus or minus three percent.
