Friday News Roundup: The Border Crisis is Intentional, and the Media is Complicit

Prince Phillip died early Friday morning:

From the story at the New York Post:

Prince Philip, the longest-serving royal consort in British history, who was a constant companion to Queen Elizabeth II during their 74 years of marriage and the father to royal heir Prince Charles, died Friday. He was 99.

“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” Buckingham Palace announced on Twitter Friday.

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.”

Known for his easy-going humor, dapper wardrobe and sometimes startling frankness, The Duke of Edinburgh was a tireless advocate for the monarchy, wildlife conservation, science and a proponent of mixing athletics with scholarship.

He also racked up more than 22,000 solo public engagements since 1952.

The oldest-ever male member of the British royal family, Philip was rarely seen in public after he retired from his public duties in August 2017.

[End]

RIP.

Here’s all you need to know about China Joe Biden and gun control. – China Joe doesn’t even know the name of the agency charged with enforcing America’s gun laws:

At one point in his utterly, completely, 100% dishonest speech announcing his new executive orders on gun control, our brain-addled Sock Puppet read from his TelePrompter a statement claiming that attendees at gun shows are able to purchase firearms with no background checks at all. An outright lie.

When asked at her press briefing later in the day if the Sock Puppet-in-Chief actually believes that lie, the hapless Jen Circle Back Psaki responded exactly as you’d expect her to respond:

“No, it’s not his belief.” That’s an actual, very rare true statement from the White House spokesperson. See, Joe Biden doesn’t actually have beliefs of his own. On any subject. As I’ve written many times in the past, Joe Biden’s brain is an empty vessel waiting to be refilled with the ideas of others.

I mean, my God, this is a man who was forced out of the presidential race in 1988 because he is so vacant-minded that he literally plagiarized the speech of a British politician in an effort to reinvent his own personal life story. This man doesn’t even know who he is as a person, much less hold any deep beliefs about the pressing issues facing America today.

And of course he doesn’t really believe anything he said in that speech yesterday, which as Tucker Carlson exposed in his monologue last night, was nothing but a recitation of the long-promoted false talking points of the radical left on the issue of gun control. That speech – like every other speech he gives – was written for him by others. All China Joe did was read it, and not very well, obviously.

A friend commented after Biden’s latest lurch into Soviet-style totalitarianism that “it’s almost as if the Democrat Party decided last year to intentionally saddle the country with the single dumbest and most easily-manipulated person in their entire party.”

No, it’s not ‘almost’ like that: It’s exactly like that. And they succeeded.

God help us, the alternative to China Joe – the amazing disappearing “Border Czar” and former escort for Willie Brown – is even worse and more dangerous.

We are so screwed.

Meanwhile, at that same fake White House press briefing… – Not a single question was raised by a single fake reporter during this hour-long daily soiree about the literal invasion that is happening at our border with Mexico. Not one.

The crisis at our southern border continues to explode, with the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol posting all-time record high numbers of apprehensions during March. The numbers are simply overwhelming:

From a story at the DailyMail:

March saw the most migrant children crossing the border in a month in HISTORY with 19,000 kids taken into cramped shelters that cost $60MILLION a week

March saw the most migrant children crossing the border in history, with 18,890 unaccompanied minors being taken into cramped shelters.

The previous record was when around 11,000 children crossed the border in May 2019.

The March numbers provided by Customs and Border Patrol Thursday represented a 100 per cent increase in crossings compared to February.

Overall in March, the CBP encountered more than 172,000 people attempting to gain entry along the Southwest border, which represented a 71 per cent increase over February 2021.

The CBP’s acting commissioner Troy Miller pushed that the situation was under control.

‘CBP has experienced an increase in encounters and arrests. This is not new. Encounters have continued to increase since April 2020, and our past experiences have helped us be better prepared for the challenges we face this year,’ Miller said in a statement attached to the new numbers. ‘We are committed to balancing the needs of maintain border security, care for those in our custody and keep the American people and our workforce safe.’

It was also revealed on Thursday that Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services is spending $60million a week to house the child migrants in 10 shelters across the country.

Figures seen by The Washington Post show the cost of caring for one of these youths is $290 a day, and the 7,700 available beds have already been completely overwhelmed.

President Joe Biden also tried to characterize the influx as normal seasonal upticks during his late March press conference.

‘It happens every single solitary year. There is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March – it happens every year,’ Biden said then.

[End]
Of course, China Joe’s statement there is an outright lie written for him by his evil handlers, which accurately describes literally every statement he makes in public. This is not just an ‘uptick’, not anything resembling normal seasonal fluctuations in border human trafficking. These are all-time record numbers, and this is what an invasion looks like.
Meanwhile, China Joe’s “Border Czar,” Kamala Harris, spends her time shopping for cranberry-orange muffins in Chicago.

Why don’t the fake reporters ask about any of this when given the chance? Because this crisis at the border is a feature of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration, not a glitch. This is all just part of the plan, and the corrupt, Soviet-style state-run propaganda media is complicit.

This really is not complicated. Not at all.

That is all.

NEW: Photos Emerge of Concentration Camp-Like Conditions in Border Facilities – UPDATED

It’s been obvious for weeks that the sights at border facilities at the Texas/Mexico border must be depressing and disgusting, as the Biden/Harris people have desperately worked to prevent images from them to be released to the public, knowing they’d likely cause a scandal. The recent moves by the ghouls running this administration to move thousands of illegals to holding facilities in places like Dallas and Midland, and policy changes over past few days to expedite the release of asylum applicants into the public without proper, time-consuming processing has only served to emphasize the likely images of squalor and concentration camp-like conditions that must exist in these border facilities.

This morning, those suspicions have been borne out as photos taken inside the facilities have been leaked on social media. Here are some of them, from the account of independent journalist Ian Miles Cheong:

**UPDATE**: Here are more from James O’Keefe:

The Obama/Biden-era chain-link walls have been removed from the interior of these facilities, now replaced with plastic curtains, but the images of refugees recruited by leftist activists in Central America milling around in squalor are just as disgusting and disturbing.

Of course, now that these photos are in the public domain, the corrupt news media will coordinate efforts with the Biden/Harris people to spread the lie that this is somehow all Trump’s fault, because that’s what these despicable toadies do for Democrats.

But remember: Prior to January 20, these border holding facilities were virtually empty thanks efforts by the Trump Administration to control the border and pressure the government of Mexico to process the vast majority of Central American asylum-seekers in that country. You weren’t seeing such images before then because these conditions simply did not exist.

**UPDATE**: To emphasize that truth, President Trump issued a formal statement late on Sunday:

 

The Biden/Harris people have now reversed all of those very effective policies in their insane zeal to import a new potential Democrat voting bloc into our midst. That is the motivation behind all of this – it’s the truth, and we should not be shy about pointing it out.

That is all.

Biden’s Self-Created Texas Border Crisis is a Feature, Not a Glitch

Ok, so, it’s a crisis, right? – The completely inept dog and pony show artist Jen Psaki admitted that the Biden/Harris-created crisis at the border with Mexico is indeed a crisis at her daily media lapdog training session on Thursday. Panicked, she then walked it all back, saying she meant to use the word “challenges” instead:

Those Democrat-funded and created “challenges” include border detention facilities – that stood near-empty six months ago when we had a real President in office – now so overcrowded that the administration has now sent thousands of “juvenile” aliens – many of whom appear to be in their ’30s – to be housed at the convention center in Dallas, and thousands more to be released on the streets of Houston, San Antonio and Midland, among other Texas cities. The Sock Puppet-in-Chief himself yesterday claimed to George Stephanopoulous that yes, there is currently a “surge” at the border, but hey, there was a surge at the border during 2019 and 2020, too.

That is an outright lie, but ABC’s little trained Clinton monkey just nodded  his head and moved on, because that’s what the corrupt news media does for Democrats.

Ironically, Psaki’s accidental admission of the truth about the state of the border came within a couple of hours of Biden himself accidentally admitting that he’s really not in control here:

“President Harris and I…”

Oh, yeah, it definitely is all going according to plan for this sock puppet administration. They want millions more illegals in the country so that, once they do away with the Senate filibuster rule, they can give the illegals all amnesty and eventually harvest their votes for Democrats politicians. The focusing of this Democrat-sponsored surge along the border with Texas is all just a part of the party’s long-held ambitions to turn Texas into a blue state.

Given that the vote among native Hispanic citizens in Texas has been trending in the direction of the GOP in recent election cycles, the Democrats know that their plan likely cannot work without flooding the Lone Star State with a ready made new voter bloc of illegal aliens. Thus, this crisis is not a glitch for the Biden/Harris administration, it is a feature.

Think about it: If this weren’t all part of the overarching plan, why would this frankly evil administration be intentionally flooding Texas with COVID-positive illegals during the midst of a global pandemic, as Biden’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorka, admitted during a hearing on Thursday?

From a story at the Washington Times:

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted Wednesday that his department has released migrants who jumped the border into communities without testing them for the coronavirus, but he said officials are working to fix the problem.

Testifying to Congress, Mr. Mayorkas was unable to say how many people were released without testing over the nearly two months the Biden administration has been in office.

He repeatedly said it was his “policy” to test for coronavirus infection, but two hours into a hearing with the Homeland Security Committee, he admitted that the department was falling well short of that goal. He did add that improvements have been made.

Pressed further, he said, “There were instances in which individuals were released.”

Mr. Mayorkas said the policy has been to hope communities and charities are able to conduct the testing when Border Patrol agents release migrants.
[End]

That last statement is a bald-faced, outright lie: No one in the administration harbored any such hopes. Border Patrol officials, acting on orders from Washington, have been loading un-tested illegals onto buses and simply dumping them off at bus stops in cities all over the state. In some instances, local officials have not even been informed the buses were coming to their cities.

Still don’t think this crisis is in fact the Biden plan? Here’s a clip of him during a 2019 Democrat debate, overtly advocating for creating exactly this sort of artificial surge at the border:

It’s a feature, not a glitch. No thinking person, i.e., non-Democrat, should harbor any illusions otherwise.

Democracy Dies Thanks to the Washington Post’s Dark Motivations

The news-fakery never ends. – Yesterday, two months after the original, utterly false story had been published and long after the damage had been done in terms of brainwashing the public, the Washington Post attempted to quietly issue a “correction” about one of its myriad anti-Trump stories:

To give you all a quick Cliff’s notes version of what happened:

– An utterly corrupt Georgia elections investigator secretly recorded a call he had with President Donald Trump last December, in the wake of the blatantly stolen election there.

– This investigator – who was in fact not investigating anything at all, but helping to cover things up – then lied about the contents of the call to the Washington Post, whose utterly corrupt reporters and editors eagerly lapped up the lies and ran with the story without doing a shred of work to verify their lone, single source for it.

– The investigator attempted to erase the recording of the story in order to cover up his lies, and thought he had been successful.

– But the recording was recovered in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, and then released to the public.

– Caught in their propagation of outright lies due to their own shoddy journalistic practices, the WaPo then attempted to quietly “correct” its utterly false story, two months after the fact.

This is what passes for “journalism” in America today.

The purposeful dissemination of rancid fake news that ran the epidemic during the Trump Administration as the Democrat activists posing as “journalists” coordinated efforts with the Democrat Party’s never-ending coup d’état efforts have only continued to get worse and worse since Trump left office on January 20. Nazi-style propaganda outlets like the WaPo provide numerous examples of rank news-fakery every day of the week at this point in their desperate efforts to provide cover for the nation-killing policies of China Joe Biden.

Check this one out from just yesterday:

So, illegal immigrants are “not overrunning U.S. border towns,” according to the WaPo’s propaganda parrots, but less than an hour later they run a report admitting that border migrant facilities are now so woefully overrun that the Biden people are now having to transport many aliens 400 miles north to be held at the convention center in Dallas.

Oh.

But back to the January hit piece on Trump. The former President issued a wonderful statement of his own yesterday after reading the WaPo’s half-hearted effort to “correct” its false reporting:

Image

“You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes and outright lies always slant one way – against me and against Republicans. Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm – for example, after an election is over.”

Yep, that pretty much sums it up, alright.

For 30 years now, I have regularly written op/ed pieces detailing how and why the utter corruption of our nation’s news media apparatus presents a vastly more clear and present danger to America’s survival than Russia or China could ever hope to do. 30 years ago, I was writing about the simple, pervasive bias in the nightly newscasts that would help elect a lifelong reprobate like Bill Clinton to the presidency a year later. At that time, newspapers like the Washington Post, despite their clear editorial bias, still deployed newsroom standards of journalism that demanded at least two verified sources for every story and careful editorial review before any story went to print. In sticking to such standards, the Post, the New York Times and other major media outlets could at least be relied upon to get their facts right, even as they made concerted efforts to slant those facts in favor of their beloved Democrats.

We’ve seen a steady erosion of those standards since the advent of the Internet midway through Clinton’s time in office. They totally went out the window in 2015, when Donald Trump – the ultimate outsider and enemy of the DC Swamp/New York/Los Angeles axis of disinformation – declared his candidacy for the presidency. It was at that point in mid-2015 when the national news media abandoned what little pretense of fairness and accuracy it still maintained and went into full-on Nazi propaganda mode.

Things have degenerated so deeply now that today it is virtually impossible to find any real, unbiased and unfalsified “news” reporting anywhere in the United States of America. The best one can do anymore is to identify a variety of outlets that can at least be relied upon to get the facts mostly right, and then run it all through your personal BS filter as you are consuming the contents. Those who lack a reliable personal BS filter generally end up voting Democrat.

The existential threat to our country’s survival that the media now represents just successfully helped the Democrat Party steal the presidency for the coming four years. Real Americans have the next three years and eight months to find a way to defeat the Nazi-style axis of propaganda in 2024, or likely lose the country for good.

Democracy is dying in the darkness created by our utterly corrupt news media. Some like to blame the Internet for this, but the Internet did not order a single editor to abandon a single principle of journalism. Those decisions were made by corrupt human beings.

That is all.

The Kids are Back in Cages Thanks to Joe Biden

The kids are back in the cages, but the Democrat toadies in our news media refuse to call them that now that a Democrat is in office. – One of the Trump policies that China Joe immediately reversed upon being installed in office was an immigration policy that allowed for the rapid deportation of children who had illegally crossed the border in the company of adults who are not their parents. This was a humanitarian policy that quickly reunited most of these kids with their parents rather than having them spend months in border facilities as their cases were being adjudicated.

Biden reversed this policy out of simple spite, and in order to facilitate the illegal immigration of these adults, who the Democrats intend to turn into a whole new, huge voting block in the coming months. But now, of course, we have to do something with those kids, so they’re back in the “cages” that were built during the Obama/Biden years, but which Trump’s policies had largely emptied out, along with a new set of enclosures that look like shipping containers.

From a story at Axios:

More than 700 children who crossed from Mexico into the United States without their parents were in Border Patrol custody as of Sunday, according to an internal Customs and Border Protection document obtained by Axios.

Why it matters: The current backup is yet another sign of a brewing crisis for President Biden — and a worsening dilemma for these vulnerable children. Biden is finding it’s easier to talk about preventing warehousing kids at the southern border than solving the problem.

  • Making matters worse, border crossings usually peak in the spring, and it’s only February.

Behind the scenes: Of the more than 700 kids waiting to be transferred to shelters overseen by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 200 had been held in these Border Patrol stations for more than 48 hours.

  • Nine had been detained for longer than the agreed-upon limit of 72 hours, according to the internal document, which timestamped the data current as of 8:15 a.m. on Feb. 21.

During Wednesday’s White House media briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki acknowledged some kids had been held four or five days — or more.

  • She blamed some of the delays on the bad weather that shut down Texas last week, saying some long-term shelters “did not have power and were not in a place where they had the capacity to take in these kids and do it safely.”
  • She also pushed back — hard — on an equivalency between the current and past administrations’ handling of children, who generally come from countries in Central America, at the U.S.-Mexico border.
  • While president, Donald Trump was criticized for separating children from their parents. That policy is no longer in place, although rising numbers of children arriving now are unaccompanied, meaning they are detained alone anyway.

[End]

Note how the Axios Democrat toady twists himself in logical knots trying to defend the Biden people, and laughably defends the inept defense of this despicably inhuman policy by Jen Psaki.

The fact of the matter is that this Biden policy reversal was done to intentionally encourage human child trafficking so the Democrat Party has more illegal aliens in this country to turn into voters if they can shove an amnesty bill through congress. That’s the premeditated intent.

Reporters who provide cover for this are nothing more than ghouls.

Wednesday News Roundup: Biden Science is the Bestest Science but Gavin Newsom is Close Behind

Rand Paul assassinated the latest Democrat impeachment scam yesterday. – As I reported last night, the Senator from Kentucky pulled a deft parliamentary maneuver in which the Senate was required to vote on a motion to dismiss the case. Though that vote ended in rejection by a 55-45 margin, with 5 RINOs joining the 50 communist Democrats, that is far short of the 67 votes that would be needed to convict Donald Trump of this faked-up impeachment article.

The names of those five RINOs are as predictable as the sun rising in the East, and you can read about them and their latest act of mendacity at this link.

God Bless Texas. – As I also reported late yesterday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton won an initial victory in his challenge to China Joe Potato Head Biden’s executive order that would halt all deportations, even of violent criminal aliens. At Texas federal judge issued a 14-day nationwide restraining order in the case, following the precedents set by all the leftist judges during the Trump administration.

The practical effect of the order is to give the judge time to fully review the case and issue a final decision, but the symbolic effect is to send a shot across Biden’s rickety bow that some Republicans aren’t planning to just take all of the crap he slings around lying down.

Cool.

Today’s “Because Science” Look-in on the COVID-19 Pandemic. – It’s like magic!:

Note that January 7 was the day following congress’s approval of the Electoral College vote. Some coincidence there, huh?

Science.

Biden science is the bestest science. – Here, the new Swamp Sock Puppet President weighs in on the “science” behind wearing masks. It’s a real tour de force.:

Biden: “One congressman pointed out — he used a very color term to say — wearing a mask, I tell them to ‘kiss my ear.’ I’m not wearing a mask. Well, guess, what, not very American.”

Yes, friends, he really said that, and not a single reporter present asked for a clarification because they all know it would only get worse.

You just could never, ever make this stuff up, folks. Don’t even try.

Gavin Newsom science is the next-bestest science. – Presumably desperate because his high-dollar Napa Valley winery is bleeding money, California Governor Gavin Newsom this week joined the parade of Democrat governors who are suddenly thinking reopening their economies might be a good idea now that their party’s sock puppet is safely in the White House.

From the story at the New York Post:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday lifted the regional stay-at-home orders across the state — allowing restaurants to resume outdoor dining amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’re seeing a flattening of the curve. Everything that should be up is up, everything that should be down is down,” Newsom said at the press conference.

He said the hard-hit Golden State is “not out of the woods,” but its models suggest that it has overcome the most “challenging” part of the latest wave.

“We are in a position — projecting four weeks forward with a significant decline in the case rates, positivity rates — we are anticipating still more decline in hospitalizations and more declines in ICUs, and that’s why we’re lifting that stay-at-home order effective immediately today,” he said.

The state will return to a colored tier system that dictates restrictions by county based on the risk of community transmission.

The strict lockdown had been in place in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley and Southern California — the majority of counties in the Golden State.

[End]

So, what has changed related to the pandemic in California? Not much, really, other than Biden’s inauguration. Despite all of the draconian lockdowns and mask mandates and business closures and job losses mandated by this despicable fascist thug, California’s performance related to COVID has been among the very most abysmal in the country, surpassed only by the grotesque results in New York and maybe New Jersey.

There was never any shred of “science” or “data” supporting Newsom’s thuggish approach – every decision he made was based on pure partisan politics. Millions of Californians have lost their jobs and hundreds of thousands have lost their businesses, but this ghoul has no regrets because his political tactic paid off, and that’s truly all that matters to any Democrat politician.

Trump just keeps on winning. – In one of the most epically hilarious moves of his entire adult life, Donald Trump yesterday announced that he has emulated Joe Biden’s creation of the fantasy “office of the President-elect” by creating his own “Office of the Former President,” complete with all the signage and seals that go along with an official executive office.

From the story at The Epoch Times:

Former President Donald Trump opened an “Office of the Former President” on Jan. 25 that seeks to advance the interests of the United States and carry on the agenda of his administration.

A statement from the office in Palm Beach County, Florida, reads: “Today, the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, formally opened the Office of the Former President.

“The Office will be responsible for managing President Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump Administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism.

“President Trump will always and forever be a champion for the American People.”

The announcement of the “Office of the Former President’ came shortly before the House of Representatives delivered a single impeachment charge to the Senate late Jan. 25. The “incitement of insurrection” charge claims that Trump was responsible for inciting an insurrection that resulted in riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

[End]

God, I miss this man, and not only because of his epic trolling talent.

FACT CHECK: Senator Cotton is right. But our designated sock puppet doesn’t care.

Sad.

Riot City Status Check of the Day. – Portland communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler was dining without the required mask and pepper sprayed an ordinary citizen who pointed that out to him Monday night, and nothing will happen to him.

From the story at JustTheNews.com:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler pepper sprayed an unmasked man with a video camera who confronted him and former Mayor Sam Adams as the two men left a restaurant Sunday evening.

The two mayors had dined at the McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery & Public House and were leaving the establishment at around 8 p.m. when a middle-aged man appeared to accuse the Wheeler of dining without a mask, according to a Portland Police report released Monday.

According to the report, the two mayors informed the stranger that they had dined in the tented area of the restaurant where masks were not required, but that did not deter the man from following Wheeler to his car.

[End]

Wheeler told police – over whom he serves as Commissioner – that he and his partner were “afraid of getting COVID-19.”

Hey, dude, don’t mess with your ruling class unless you’re willing to take the pepper spray, especially as long as COVID is hanging around as a justification for their abuse of you and your rights.

That is America today.

Victory! Texas Wins Challenge to Biden Deportation Freeze.

Turns out that some Republicans aren’t just going to take all of this nonsense sitting down. – Throughout the four years of Donald Trump’s presidency, every executive order he issued was immediately challenged by Lawfare lawyers in the federal courts. The leftwing activists were clever about bringing their challenges in leftist-dominated jurisdictions like Hawaii, Oregon and California, where they had the best chance of drawing a fellow leftist judge who would rule in their favor.

Many had assumed that Republicans were too dumb and timid to play the same legal games when China Joe Potato Head Biden began signing off on the dozens of orders laid out before him by his elder-abusing handlers. Frankly, given the past behavior by the GOP establishment, that seemed a pretty safe assumption.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, though, is not a part of the GOP establishment. So, when Biden issued his order freezing deportations of illegal alien criminals, Paxton immediately filed a challenge to that order. Today, the federal judge who drew the case, District Judge Drew Tipton, issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the policy nationwide for 14 days:

From a story at MSN.com:

A federal judge in Texas on Tuesday temporarily blocked a move by new U.S. President Joe Biden to halt the deportation of certain immigrants for a 100-day period, a swift legal setback for his ambitious immigration agenda.

U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, an appointee of former President Donald Trump in the Southern District of Texas, issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the policy nationwide for 14 days following a legal challenge by Texas.

The Biden administration is expected to appeal the ruling, which halts the policy while both parties submit briefs on the matter.

Biden promised on the campaign trail to enact a 100-day moratorium on deportations if elected, a proposal that contrasted sharply with the immigration crackdown promoted by Trump, a Republican.

[End]

Note how the story – published first by the hacks at Reuters – identifies Tipton as a Trump appointee, in stark contrast to the corrupt media’s practice of uniformly failing to made such identification of the Obama and Clinton appointees who issued nationwide restraining orders against an array of Trump orders. But hey, that’s just what the corrupt, Nazi-style news media does.

So, Republicans have their first court victory against this far-leftwing administration. Let’s hope and pray it is but the first of many more to come.

God Bless Texas.

Eric Swalwell Seeks to Put the “POS” in POTUS

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some mid-day short takes on the passing scene…

If Eric Swalwell gets elected to the presidency in 2020, he will be living proof that you can’t spell POTUS without the “POS.” – First, he threatened to nuke gun owners on his Twitter feed. Next, he proposed a plan to use Australia and New Zealand as his role model countries for his plans to confiscate your guns.

Now, the farcical college frat party planner from California tells the execrable CNN host Jake Tapper that he would send gun owners to prison should they refuse to comply with his Stalinist gun grab. If your fondest wish is to bring a violent civil war to this country, vote Swalwell in 2020! He’s your man.

By the way, everyone is aware that Swalwell is not in this race because he thinks he has the slightest chance of winning it, right? He is obviously a token, put up to it by Party leaders as a stalking horse to try to gin the public up on the gun control issue. He’s going to be the guy out there promoting all of these radical “solutions” to gun violence so that the other, more viable candidates don’t have to do it themselves.

This way, the Democrat Party and its media co-conspirators keep the gun grabbing issue constantly in the news cycle throughout the nominating process, helping to normalize it in the public consciousness while at the same time allowing the actual leaders in the race to avoid it almost entirely. The hope is to create enough media attention on the subject to allow the eventual Democrat nominee to latch onto the issue on the pretense that Swalwell’s advocacy created some sort of popular groundswell.

If you think the Democrats would never stoop to such an underhanded, dishonest strategy, well, what planet have you been living on for the last 25 years?

Guess who wrote this stuff. – Here are some outtakes from a wonderful opinion piece out there on the interwebnets today. See if you can guess the identity profile of the person who wrote them:

We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty. One. Times. Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful…

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, “An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity.”…

Never saw American prosperity. Let that sink in. When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I’ve ever heard … Now, I’m not attributing Miss Ocasio-Cortez’s words to outright dishonesty. I do think she whole-heartedly believes the words she said to be true…

Let me lay down some universal truths really quick. The United States of America has lifted more people out of abject poverty, spread more freedom and democracy, and has created more innovation in technology and medicine than any other nation in human history. Not only that but our citizenry continually breaks world records with charitable donations, the rags to riches story is not only possible in America but not uncommon, we have the strongest purchasing power on earth, and we encompass 25% of the world’s GDP. The list goes on. However, these universal truths don’t matter.

So, what identity profile would you guess most likely fits this writer? My bet is that most readers would guess those words come from an older, white male baby-boomer. Right?

Wrong. those passages and many more wonderfully thoughtful, appreciative and incisive words were written by a young, Millennial-aged woman who wrote them while sitting in a busy “hipster” coffee shop in Nokomis, Florida. Her name is Alyssa Ahlgren, and you all should follow this link to read her entire piece. It’s the best and most encouraging thing you will read today.  Promise.

I swear this is not satire.:

You seriously just cannot make this stuff up.

In case you missed it, we have one more data point that indicates we finally, at long last, have a real Attorney General atop the nation’s Department of Justice now:  A ruling by Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday means certain migrants seeking asylum will not be released on bond but instead will stay in detention.

The NBC report linked above says that the ACLU is already working up a lawsuit to appeal the ruling – they’ll no doubt file it in a district court within the jurisdiction of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals – but no matter: This ruling is well within Barr’s authority under the law, and any adverse ruling coming out of the 9th Circuit will be reversed by the Supreme Court.

This ruling will have a significant dampening effect on the flood of illegal immigrants coming up through Mexico from Central America to make false claims of asylum, because it closes one of the biggest loopholes in the asylum process. Absent the incentive of knowing they will be released into U.S. society after a brief stay in a border detention facility, those seeking to defraud the U.S. asylum system will be far less willing to make the dangerous 1,000 mile trek to the U.S. border.

This what thinking Americans who wish to preserve our country call winning.

Thanks, Mr. Barr.

Trump Should Sign the Bad Border Deal and Finish the Wall on His Own

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, the whole “black face” thing  just very predictably veered off into the theater of the absurd. – Semi-tone deaf pop singer Katy Perry fell into the “black face” controversy on Monday for no good reason at all, because of course she did.  Social media always takes any real issue like the one swirling around Virginia Democrats to the most ridiculous extremes possible.

Ms. Perry has attached her name to a line of shoes, and some, like those pictured above, have little eyes, nose and mouth glued onto them.  Sort of like something your 6 year-old granddaughter might design (trust me, I know about this first hand). Anyway, because the shoes pictured above happen to be black in color, a bunch of nitwits on Twitter desperate to be offended accused the singer of being a racist yesterday.

Never mind the fact that the line of shoes come in a variety of different colors – it’s only the black ones that are somehow offensive. Ms. Perry has yet to apologize, something she should never even consider doing in a million years. Because the truth is this: Had her line of shoes included a variety of colors, but not black ones, she’d have then been accused by the very same nitwits of discrimination. You all know that is true.

The people who know “Beto” best would rather go see Trump. Take this as an object lesson. – When the White House announced last Thursday that President Donald Trump would travel to El Paso for a political rally on Monday, Irish Bob O’Rourke, an El Paso native, quickly announced he would hold a “counter-rally” of his own.

Hearts began to flutter throughout our fake news media – as they always do whenever the cute ex-sheep suit-wearing punk rocker opens his mouth – as the wags began to rampantly speculate that their precious “Beto” would surely draw more people to his rally than the President would. After all, El Paso was his home town!  Why surely the people who know and love “Beto” best would turn out in mobs to hear his immaculate pronouncements!

Uh, well, no. That didn’t happen. Not even close. The fake news media did its best to cover it up, but the reality is that the President had an overflow crowd of 8,000 or so inside the arena in which he spoke, and another 20,000 or so standing out in the elements watching on large TV screens. Here’s a shot of a small part of that outdoor crowd:

Meanwhile, a few blocks down the road, only a couple of thousand showed up to listen to the city’s fake favorite son. It turns out that familiarity really does breed contempt.

But the reality won’t stop the fake news media from lying about it all anyway. The shameless fake newsers at The Week have a piece out this morning with this headline:  “Trump Seemed Very Interested in Beto O’Rourke’s Evidently Larger Crowd During His El Paso Rally,” thus deceitfully implying that Irish Bob actually drew more people than Trump did, something not even the most biased fake reporters on the scene attempted to claim.

How false is that headline?  Despite massively inflating O’Rourke’s actual turnout by a factor of seven or so, The Week’s own piece admits the Trump crowd was far larger:

Trump’s audience inside the coliseum was 6,500, at capacity, El Paso Fire Department public information officer Enrique Aguilar told the El Paso Times. “It might be 10,000 with the people outside,” watching on monitors. The rally O’Rourke spoke at, following a mile-long march, drew at least 7,000 people, The Texas Tribune reports.

Um, last time I looked, 10,000 is more than 7,000, even when those absurdly-faked numbers appear in a fake news publication like The Week.

Another bad deal on the border. – The very Swampy congressional negotiators announced a very, very, very bad “bi-partisan” deal on border security funding as President Trump was flying out to Texas on Monday. The “deal” includes just $1.375 for “border barrier” funding – because we mustn’t say “wall”, you know – far below the President’s $5.7 billion demand. It’s a lousy deal, negotiated by lousy Republican swamp rats and open-borders Democrats. The outcome was thus predictable.

If this smelly “deal” passes both houses of congress and is sent to his desk, the President has only three options that would preserve his electoral viability going into 2020:

  • Reject the bill, which means another fake partial government shutdown; or
  • Sign the bill and immediately announce either a national emergency declaration or, as White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney laid out on Sunday, that he will use his presidential authority to reallocate unused funds from the Defense, Homeland Security and other departmental budgets to fund the wall.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Mulvaney said:

“Any president can do this…There are certain funds of money that he can get to without declaring a national emergency and other funds that he can only get to after declaring a national emergency. The whole pot is well north of $5.7 billion.”

That is the path the President should take. The Democrats are desperate to force another shutdown in order to change the subject from racist, baby-murdering, women-assaulting Virginia Democrats, disastrous Green New Deals and anti-Semite Minnesota congresswomen. So they’ll be all too thrilled to deny more paychecks to those same 800,000 federal workers and cry their crocodile tears over them.

The President should not give them that gift when he has them so clearly on the defensive.

What President Trump cannot do is sign this atrocity of a “deal” and do nothing else on border security. More than any other element of his 2016 campaign, his promise to secure our Southern border is why he was elected. He cannot leave that promise unaddressed any longer and expect to be re-elected in 2020.

The time to act is now.

That is all.

The Fake Media Disgraces Itself In The Wake Of The President’s Speech

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Your fake news media in action!  – President Trump gave a 9 minute speech on the need for ramped-up border security Tuesday night, and in response, the Associated Press disgraced itself with a “report” on the speech that is so biased that it reads like the work of a 14 year-old writing for the local jr. high newspaper.

The AP report’s very first sentence claims that the President’s speech “was heavy with dark immigration rhetoric but offered little in the way of concessions or new ideas”. The word “dark” has long been one of the fake media/Democrat coalition’s favorite words to describe any proposal or language coming from any GOP president going all the way back to Ronald Reagan. It obviously polls well for them.

The third paragraph of the AP piece dutifully recites the Democrats’ top-line talking point, accusing the President of “appealing to ‘fear, not facts’ and manufacturing a border crisis for political gain.” The AP makes no attempt to analyze the accuracy – or lack thereof – of those accusations by Democrats.  Because of course it doesn’t.

The fifth paragraph is an ode to the Democrat talking points on the partial government “shutdown” which really isn’t a shutdown at all, stating that Mr. Trump “addressed the nation as the shutdown stretched through its third week, with hundreds of thousands of federal workers going without pay and some congressional Republicans growing increasingly jittery about the spreading impact of the impasse.”

Fact:  No federal employee has at this point missed a paycheck due to this “shutdown.”  Not one.

Paragraph #7 accuses the President’s re-election campaign of raising money related to the border crisis, as if that is something unusual.  Politicians of both parties regularly use major public events and crises as events to send out fundraising letters.  It happens all the time, and is hardly a newsworthy event.  The AP would have never dreamed of mentioning this during the Obama years.

Paragraphs #9, #10 and #11 recite more Democrat talking points. You can read them for yourself.

Paragraph #12 is a doozy:  “In his dire address, Trump ticked off a string of statistics and claims to make his case that there is a crisis at the border, but a number of his statements were misleading, such as saying the new trade deal with Mexico would pay for the wall, or suggesting through gruesome examples that immigrants are more likely to commit crime.”

Note the use of the word “dire”, an editorial comment that has no place in a “news” report.  Then there’s the claim that the President was “misleading” in accurately stating that the new trade deal with Mexico will in fact pay for the wall, which it will do many times over in the coming years.  That trade agreement is far more favorable to the U.S. than NAFTA, and will have a significant stimulative impact on the U.S. economy.  The AP is lying here, plain and simple.

That final passage, “suggesting through gruesome examples that immigrants are more likely to commit crime” is yet another AP lie.  An outright, intentional misleading of its audience.  First, the President NEVER claims that “immigrants” are “more likely to commit crime.”  Never.  Not one time.

President Trump does, however, claim that ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS are more likely to commit crime in the U.S., which is unarguably true, and which Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton have also correctly pointed out during their careers. The AP is fully aware of this unarguable FACT, but of course omits it from its fake reporting.

Paragraph #13 is another doozy of fake-newsery.  First sentence:  “Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has recently seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall.” In fact, candidate Donald Trump “seized” on humanitarian concerns over the border crisis throughout his 2015 and 2016 presidential campaign.  Time after time after time, in dozens of campaign rallies all across the country.

Somehow, the AP missed it.  Go figure.

Second sentence: “But critics say the security risks are overblown and the administration is at least partly to blame for the humanitarian situation.” “Critics” = Democrats. More talking points, which the AP makes no attempt to analyze in the editorial fashion it reserves for Republicans.

Paragraph #14 accuses the President of using “emotional language” to describe horrific murders and rapes committed in recent years by illegal immigrants, crimes the AP has done its best to studiously ignore, like the recent murder of a California law enforcement officer by an illegal immigrant who had been given sancutary by the Democrat Party’s policies in that state.

Paragraph #15 repeats the outright deception about “immigrants” being less likely to commit crimes, leaving out the word “illegal”, which the AP knows is the true focus of the President’s concerns.

In between those last two paragraphs is a chart that shows the yearly apprehensions along our Southwest border.  This chart was published in early 2018 by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.  It shows that border apprehensions fell dramatically during President Trump’s first year in office, as potential immigrants became discouraged at the loss of the Obama Administration’s welcoming hand. The AP dishonestly presents this as some sort of proof that there is no crisis at our border.

What the AP report studiously ignores is the well-documented reality that border apprehensions rose dramatically during 2018, as leftist groups in the U.S. ramped up their efforts to organize caravans of immigrants to assault the border. Indeed, apprehensions in May, 2018 were 400% higher than those recorded in April, 2017.

That’s a crisis.

The rest of the AP report is equally disgraceful, but I’m running out of space here.

Our reality is this: There is indeed a crisis at our Southern border. It exists due to 30 years of idiotic open borders policies enacted by a succession of globalist presidents working with pliable congresses, supported by a string of court decisions issued by lawless leftist federal judges. The result of all of that horrific policy-making and court-deciding is that, once illegal immigrants cross into our country it is now virtually impossible for our government to send them back to their home country.

The leaders of the Democrat Party love this situation – despite all of the human- and drug-trafficking and massive human misery that comes along with it – because they view these new illegal aliens as a gigantic future voting bloc. Many U.S. business interests love this situation because they enjoy the cheap labor.  It’s cynical and disgraceful and it is destroying our society.

The only way to effectively combat the situation is to prevent the waves from entering the country in the first place, because once they are here, very few are ever returning home.  The most effective way to prevent their entry is with a wall, plain and simple.

This is a crisis the Democrats and establishment Republicans have created, and it is a crisis President Trump was elected to resolve.

Our fake news media will never tell you any of this, because none of it is in the approved narrative they’ve coordinated with the Democrats in Washington.  But this is our reality, and it is simply unsustainable.

God Bless President Trump for trying to do something about it.

That is all.

The Media Beclowns Itself on the Anchor Babies Issue. What Else is New?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, now we know why he was transferred. –  Infamous Boston Gangster Whitey Bulger was transferred to a new, maximum security prison in Virginia on Tuesday.  There, he was beaten to death by several mob-connected inmates before 9:00 a.m. That’s some security right there.

Another media narrative epic fail. – Despite the best efforts of our fake news media to lay the blame for the fake pipe bomber solely at President Donald Trump’s feet over the last week, a new poll taken by the ultra-leftwing Huffington Post shows that only 24% of Americans believe he bears much of the blame for the incident, whatever it really turns out to have been.  On the other hand, 50% of Americans believe he bears “no blame at all” for the actions of a steroids-addled nutjob.

Which only proves that at least half of Americans still have their wits about them.

What, you thought Hollywood would actually reform itself? – Here’s how you can tell the whole #MeToo movement has had no impact whatsoever on the depraved Hollywood culture:  Currently in the works are both a major Showtime mini-series and a feature film starring Charlize Theron about the Roger Ailes scandal at Fox News, but there are zero projects in the works starring nobody about piggish big Hollywood muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein.

What does this tell us? It tells us that despite his current situation, Weinstein retains major influence in Tinseltown, and people there are still afraid to cross him. One gets the feeling that if a movie is ever made about Weinstein and his escapades, it will be cast as a light-hearted comedy starring Kevin Spacey and Meryl Streep, and produced by…wait for it…Harvey Weinstein.

And now a word from the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed:

Sometimes it really is difficult to think of China as a “civilized” society.

On this whole “birthright citizenship” thing… – Never in the history of the fake media beclowning itself have so many inhabitants of our fake media beclowned themselves as they did on Twitter yesterday over this “birthright citizenship” deal. It seemed as if every fake journalist in America felt the burning need to get on Twitter and sternly and sagely announce that President Trump’s planned executive order would never work because, and I quote, “birthright citizenship is enshrined in the Constitution!” Why, it’s almost as if they had all gotten a talking points memo from the Democrat Party or something.  Go figure.

The only problem with their joint talking point on the issue is, it isn’t true. Again, go figure.

Look, the 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868 to protect the rights of freed slaves (about 99% of whose previous “owners” happened to be Democrats, but I digress) and their progeny.  Not only did the 14th Amendment have literally nothing to do with the children of illegal immigrants, the congressional record makes it crystal clear that it was specifically intended to exclude them:

“This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to persons who are ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.”

As I replied to one semi-conservative Texas-based journalist who had displayed rank ignorance on the subject, “There is far more involved here than the 14th Amendment. There is 150 years of case law, 150 years of congressional action, and 150 years of administrative interpretations at play as well. If you’d stop your virtue-signaling for a few minutes, you might figure that out.”

But hey, virtue-signaling to liberals is the favorite passtime of semi-conservative journalists on Twitter, so naturally that particular journalist was unable to stop.

The reality of the current government policy regarding birthright citizenship for anchor babies of illegal immigrants is that it is exactly that:  An administrative policy. It is an interpretation by past presidential administrations that has never been tested in the federal courts.

President Trump, for better or worse, apparently intends to test it, and with the new, presumably-conservative majority on the Supreme Court, he might win.  But more to the point, even an immigration dove like Sen. Lindsey Graham believes the current policy is wrong, and he announced yesterday that he plans to introduce a bill that would correct it.  “Finally, a president willing to take on this absurd policy of birthright citizenship,” Graham said in a statement. “I’ve always supported comprehensive immigration reform – and at the same time – the elimination of birthright citizenship.”

“The United States is one of two developed countries in the world who grant citizenship based on location of birth,” Graham continues, “This policy is a magnet for illegal immigration, out of the mainstream of the developed world, and needs to come to an end.”

It is a bad policy that offers perverse incentives that encourage illegal immigration. It is a policy with no true firm basis in the law, zero actual basis in our constitution, and it needs to end if we are to ever restore some semblance of order to our system of legal immigration.

Given all of that, you can expect to see journalists in Texas and nationally to continue making fools of themselves over the issue on Twitter.  They obviously can’t help themselves, and truly enjoy doing it.

It’s a clown show out there. Be careful, and vote Republican.

That is all.
