But There Is No Crisis

It’s pretty obvious to anyone paying attention that our southern border is being flooded with people entering American illegally. Many of those people are young children who have made the perilous journey and are now coming into the country looking for relatives who are already here. At some point, through chain migration policies, families will be reunited. At some future date, Democrats will magically make all of the illegals legal citizens. However, the current situation at the border is horrendous.

Yesterday Red State reported the following:

Biden spokesperson Jen Psaki has repeatedly told reporters that there is no crisis at the border. 

There is no surge at the border, people are merely “presenting” at the border.

They aren’t keeping kids in cages at the border, they are keeping them in “soft-sided structures” that they can’t leave.

While the people currently running this country have become the living embodiment of a CNN “mostly peaceful protests” meme, the crisis has continued to grow exponentially with no end in site. The Biden Administration is rumored to be in a bit of chaos behind the scenes as they struggle to message the deluge of illegal aliens currently streaming over the border on a daily basis.

The article continues with the following tweet:

Basically, the message in the tweet is:

Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking interested candidates to serve up to a 120-day voluntary deployment detail as part of the HHS, Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), Unaccompanied Children (UC) Program, Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and HHS are calling upon our Federal Agency family of exception public servants to lend support to this humanitarian effort through this detail opportunity. This opportunity provides a continuum of care for children, including placements in foster care, shelter and residential care providers that provide temporary housing and to assist with caring for and placing children without legal immigration status…

…Details will involve contact with migrant children and a variety of other federal and non-federal entities, possibly including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, American Red Cross, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and other HHS employees. This is a reimbursement detail. Travel, lodging and per diem will be provided.

Just finish the wall and the problem will drastically decrease.

 

This Is The Goal

Freedom in America has been seriously limited over the past year because of the coronavirus. Some of the rules imposed have made sense, and some have not. Now we are hearing rumbles about a ‘vaccine passport,’ truly one of the worst ideas ever. Reminiscent of totalitarian governments saying, “Papers, please.” So what is the end game here? Well, someone accidentally gave that away.

Yesterday Red State reported the following:

Sometimes tyrants just come right out and say what they mean. Last night was one of those nights.

Chris Cuomo and Leana Wen appeared together to bat around an absolutely insane idea, and it shows just how far the left in this country are willing to go to exact their will. In this case, Wen says that vaccinations should be tied to “freedoms,” denying them to those who haven’t yet gotten the shot.

The article continues:

There’s a lot of irony in a “my body, my choice” proponent saying this. Remember, Wen is the former head of Planned Parenthood. Her entire schtick is that people should have such bodily autonomy that they can kill their own child if they want. Yet, now she wants to force people into lockdowns and punish them if they don’t inject their bodies with a specific substance. Makes sense, right?

It’s also scientifically illiterate. Those in age groups that are not at any real statistical risk of death have no reason to be prioritized for vaccination right now, and it would be tyrannical and asinine to force them to stay locked up until then. That also slows our path to herd immunity down.

And what about the tens of millions of people who have already had the virus in the United States? Science continues to show that anti-body immunity is effective and we’ve yet to see any large number of re-infections, even going back to those who had it over a year ago. The proof of that can be found in a complete lack of reporting of such incidents. The occasional anecdote will be shared, but that only drives the statistical case home harder. If immunity for those previously infected wasn’t long-lasting, we’d have seen huge spikes among those people by now.

I have had the virus and have no intention of getting the shot. I will be tested for antibodies to make sure that I am protected. However, that may not be enough for those pushing the vaccine. Already I am getting notices from places I would normally attend to discourage me from attending because I have not had the vaccine. That is truly discouraging to me. I wonder when I will be forced to wear a label that identifies me as not vaccinated.

 

After The Narrative Has Been Firmly Established, The Truth Is Revealed

On Saturday Red State posted an article about part of the FBI investigation into the riots in Washington on January 6th.

The article reports:

The last of the Capitol rioters had barely vacated the premises when Nancy Pelosi’s allies began slandering their Republican colleagues, claiming that Republican members of Congress had taken an active role in permitting the demonstrators… indeed, if they were BLM demonstrators, we would be calling them “peaceful”… to enter the Capitol. Baseless allegations were made that some Republican members of Congress allowed rioters to enter the Capitol by having them issued visitor’s passes.

…The whole story reached a crescendo two weeks ago when it was revealed that the FBI had subpoenaed the telephone records of members of Congress.

…This didn’t have the panache of John Brennan having members of Congress subjected to electronic surveillance because they opposed the Iran nuclear deal, but it is close. You can bet that the cell records of members of Congress who are giving the FBI difficulties were thoroughly mined to determine who inside the FBI was leaking information.

Now the inquiry is complete. This is the complete coverage from the New York Times. It is hidden inside a bullsh** story (read Media Continues to Try to Tie President Trump to the Capitol Riot Because They Are Terrified of His Popularity) purporting to link a “person associated with the White House” with a member of the Proud Boys.

The article concludes:

This is just another of the completely false narratives peddled by the Democrats, the media, the National Review, the Bulwark, the Dispatch, and a bunch of pedo-enabling losers that have self-destructed. The sad fact is that the truth probably does not matter. Pelosi’s goal was to tar all the GOP with direct responsibility for the Capitol riot and use those false allegations in the 2022 campaign. The narratives are out there. A viciously partisan press is still circulating them, even the provably false ones. We will see these allegations again in the next election… and the next.

Please follow the link to read the entire article–there are some interesting details included. This is simply another example of the media trying to push forward a narrative that will smear those people who support President Trump and his fight for the average American. The successes of the Trump administration are a genuine threat to the political-media establishment. All Americans need to carefully analyze any news report they hear before drawing a conclusion as to what events actually occurred.

After Four Years Without Starting A War…

Yesterday Red State posted an article about the Biden administration’s recent military attack on Syria. If you remember, during the Trump administration, President Trump used economic leverage to encourage hostile regimes to behave. Unfortunately the Biden administration is not that subtle. The Washington swamp creatures who profit in war are back in control of our government.

There is some irony in this situation–the article at Red State shares a past Tweet from Jen Psaki:

This is what President Biden Tweeted when President Trump took out Qasem Soleimani in 2019:

Never put your double standard in writing–it will come back and bite you someday.

The article at Red State concludes:

Of course, there’s a more serious question here, which is whether Psaki was actually right back in 2017. Let’s put aside the fact that Trump and Biden have both launched strikes. Should they have? I think as retaliatory strikes, the single operations are defensible. At the same time, our broader encroachment into Syria, which Trump tried his hardest to shut down but Biden has rejuvenated, is simply not.

As I’ve said in my recent critiques of Liz Cheney, it’s long past time for the uniparty that is our foreign policy complex to answer for many of the mistakes that have been made the last two decades. Rand Paul is correct when he says it’s time to force new authorization for any new military actions in the Middle East. This thing where every new president just does whatever they want is no how things are supposed to work, never mind the moral issues at play.

Unfortunately there are a lot of people who profit in war. We need to make sure they have very little influence in our government.

 

 

Vendetta

According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, a vendetta is 1. a blood feud or 2. an often prolonged series of retaliatory, vengeful, or hostile acts or exchange of such acts. I sincerely believe that what we are currently seeing in American politics is a vendetta against President Trump. So what did he do to trigger this vendetta? Let’s take a look back for a minute.

President Trump came into politics as an outsider. The mainstream media treated him as if he were a joke. He had the audacity to win. What happened when he won? First of all he discovered that a lot of Washington insiders took joy in stabbing him in the back. Secondly, he discovered that the intelligence apparatus in America was being used as a political weapon. (That has never been dealt with and probably continues under the Biden administration.) Third, he exposed the Washington swamp and was able to accomplish some noteworthy things in spite of it–energy independence, wage increases at the lower end of the economic spectrum, bringing manufacturing back to America, creating jobs, lowering gas prices, peace treaties in the Middle East, developing the coronavirus vaccine in record time, etc. Because he was successful as an outsider the Washington swamp hates him. They impeached him twice, and his poll numbers are still high. But they are not done yet.

There are two recent headlines those of us who believe the attack on President Trump has been over the top need to pay attention to. An article in Red State posted yesterday reports that the Attorney General in Fulton County, Georgia, is planning the charge President Trump with a crime in relation to a phone call to the Governor of the state. The  headline in yesterday’s Washington Times reports, “Trump properties in New York under investigation: Report.”

The Washington Times article states:

Former President Trump is facing scrutiny from prosecutors in Manhattan over millions of dollars in loans he took out for several properties in New York, The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.

Citing unnamed people familiar with the matter, the Journal reported that the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance is “investigating financial dealings” involving the Trump properties.

Specifically, the people said prosecutors are looking at loans that were made to Mr. Trump by subsidiaries of the same real-estate investment trust, Ladder Capital Corp., the Journal reported.

On May 9, 2018, The Oxford Eagle posted an article that noted the following:

Lavrentiy Beria, the most ruthless and longest-serving secret police chief in Joseph Stalin’s reign of terror in Russia and Eastern Europe, bragged that he could prove criminal conduct on anyone, even the innocent.

“Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” was Beria’s infamous boast. He served as deputy premier from 1941 until Stalin’s death in 1953, supervising the expansion of the gulags and other secret detention facilities for political prisoners. He became part of a post-Stalin, short-lived ruling troika until he was executed for treason after Nikita Khrushchev’s coup d’etat in 1953.

Beria targeted “the man” first, then proceeded to find or fabricate a crime. Beria’s modus operandi was to presume the man guilty, and fill in the blanks later. By contrast, under the United States Constitution, there’s a presumption of innocence that emanates from the 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendments, as set forth in Coffin vs. U.S. (1895).

Regardless of how you feel about President Trump, do you want to see the Constitution shredded because the deep state has a vendetta?

 

 

Finally A Congresswoman Who Has Read The U.S. Constitution

Yesterday Red State posted an article about Lauren Boebert, the newly elected representative from Colorado’s third district.

The article reports:

As we all know, one of the very first things that Scranton Joe Biden was told to sign on the dotted line with a BIG X next to it on Day One was to reenter the Paris “accord.” What that monstrosity actually is in layman’s terms in the United States Consitution would be called a treaty. This is why Donald Trump had the U.S removed from its clutches, being as the Senate never voted on it. You would think that someone like Joe Biden who took up space in the upper chamber would know the rules on how this works and not reenter an agreement without the Senate’s approval.

Maybe he just simply forgot.

The article quotes The Blaze:

In one of Biden’s first actions in office, he rejoined the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Boebert’s bill would prevent the United States from spending any money on the Paris Agreement until the treaty is ratified by the Senate.

“Joe Biden took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. If he wants to keep it, he must transmit the job-killing Paris Agreement to the U.S. Senate for ratification,” Boebert said in a statement. “Unilaterally entering the Paris Agreement was wrong in 2016 and it’s wrong now. Responsible energy production supports more than 230,000 Colorado jobs. The Paris Agreement puts these jobs at risk and will increase energy costs.”

Reentering the Paris agreement will end America’s energy independence. It will return us to the days when we depended on people who didn’t necessarily like us or have our best interests at heart to supply our energy. It is possible that many of the people supporting the reentry of this agreement are simply too young to remember the gas lines of the 1970’s.

Even if the Paris agreement is not called a treaty, it will have such a profound negative impact on the American economy that our elected officials need to go on record as having supported or opposed it. Elected officials have to be held accountable for the laws that are passed in this country. We have had too many bad laws and regulations passed by unelected bureaucrats that cannot be held accountable by the voters.

Hurting Americans To Get Back At President Trump

Red State reported yesterday that President Biden has ordered the Heath and Human Services Department (HHS) to freeze executive orders from Trump designed to significantly lower prescription drug prices for Americans, including the potentially-life-saving drugs, insulin, and epinephrine.

The article reports:

As a result, as reported by Bloomberg Law, HHS subsequently froze the former Trump administration’s December drug policy that requires community health centers to pass on all of their insulin, and epinephrine — which includes the popular EpiPen used by millions of allergy sufferers — discount savings to patients.

…Under the now-frozen Trump administration policy, “centers that don’t pass on the savings wouldn’t qualify for federal grants,” said Bloomberg.

The article includes the following:

Click here for a list of the drugs and devices that are affected by Biden’s ordered freeze.

The article notes that so far (in less than a week) President Biden has destroyed 60,000 jobs, destroyed women’s sports, destroyed the U.S. gas and oil industry (ending America’s energy independence), forced troops to sleep in parking garages, and is preparing to ramp up wars in the Middle East.

This does not look good for the future.

Gee, What A Coincidence

Red State is reporting the following today:

Michigan was set to be a state that went to Trump but miraculously, a bunch of early votes was found and every one of them was a ballot with Joe Biden’s name on it.

When I say “every one of them” I mean every single one. Not one of these ballots had a Trump vote on them.

The article concludes:

Saying that this is an impossible thing wouldn’t be right as statistically, the early vote combined with mail-in voting was always heavily Democrat-leaning. The catch here is that it’s definitely not probable. The idea that not one of them is a Trump vote seems a little off.

However, what should really make people suspicious is the fact that not one of these votes leans toward a third-party vote. While people voting for Trump definitely wanted their votes counted by showing up in person, third-party voters didn’t particularly follow the same idea as some of these were leftists as well. Not one vote for the Green Party candidate? Not one for Jo Jorgenson of the Libertarian Party?

It all seems rather suspect that every single one, without fail, went to Joe Biden.

This has all the earmarks of being fraudulent and worth investigating. It’s highly unlikely that every single mail-in vote that was suddenly found would be for Biden and that this appears to me as if Democrats are fraudulently attempting to play their hand to the point of overplaying it.

This bears investigating.

An Interesting Endorsement

Red State posted an article yesterday about one of the most unique endorsements of President Trump I have heard.

The Washington Spokane-Review posted the following on Wednesday. This is their rather lukewarm endorsement of Governor Inslee:

It’s been nearly 50 years since Washingtonians elected a governor to a third term, but given the state Republican Party’s inability to field a strong candidate in this year’s race, Gov. Jay Inslee should get one.

There’s a lot to worry about with another Inslee term, not least that the governor has seemed more focused on national and global issues than on the issues hitting his own state the hardest. He has spent more time running for president and railing against climate change than addressing homelessness, a far more critical concern to the state.

The distracted governor also remains oblivious to big and small business concerns outside the Puget Sound, especially agricultural industries.

He is beholden to public employee unions and an opponent of education reform and accountability.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Inslee led by executive order far longer than necessary rather than work with lawmakers. On his watch, the Washington Employment Security Department flailed and got ripped off by scammers.

Despite all that, he’s the better choice. Republican Loren Culp is token opposition. He’s the police chief in Republic (population: 1,105) who made a name for himself fighting regulations on firearms. That’s not the résumé of a governor.

Inslee offers deep experience working on state policy and executive leadership skills. Washington at least knows what it’s getting with him.

Their endorsement of President Trump seems to be even more lukewarm:

Donald Trump is a bully and a bigot. He is symptomatic of a widening partisan divide in the country. We recommend voting for him anyway because the policies that Joe Biden and his progressive supporters would impose on the nation would be worse.

The list of Trump’s offenses is long. He panders to racists and prevents sensible immigration reform in a nation built on immigrant labor and intellect. He tweets conspiracy theories. He’s cavalier about COVID-19 and has led poorly through the pandemic. He seeks to dismantle the Affordable Care Act without proposing a replacement. He denies climate change.

Voters knew his character in 2016 and elected him anyway. Four years later, the nation is still standing. Indeed, in many ways it flourished until the pandemic upended everything.

The economy and markets roared under Trump’s championship of market-based solutions and individualism. Unemployment among communities of color reached record lows. He reset trade and diplomatic relationships in America’s favor. He provided historically high support for traditionally Black colleges. He rolled back extreme environmental regulations and led the way for U.S. energy independence. He backed federal sentencing reform to address inordinately high American incarceration rates. And he’s committed to supporting law and order in American cities.

Biden might win on personality and comity, but his policies would strike at the economic well-being of the country. He favors massive growth in government and a historic increase in federal spending through green initiatives, free health services, free education and other ideas grounded in reliance on the state as savior rather than creating an environment in which individual liberty and hard work can thrive. Public employee unions would hold outsized power and demand greater spending.

To afford it all, Biden and a Democrat-controlled Congress would have to impose unprecedented tax increases or accept catastrophic deficit spending.

Taxes and spending likely would increase under Trump, too, but the nation stands a better chance of moderation and reform with him in the White House than it does with Biden pushed left by progressives intent on reshaping America to fit their fantastical vision.

This is an election that pits a wretched human being whose policies and instincts for helping America thrive are generally correct against a doddering, doting uncle who would hand out gifts the nation can’t afford in order to win people’s love. Given that choice, economic policy and principle should prevail. Vote for Donald Trump.

I disagree with a lot of their premises, but at least they came to the right conclusion.
