Pres. Trump refuses to cave on border wall

December 12, 2018

Democrat hypocrisy: Method acting comes to Washington

During a public, televised meeting with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), President Trump announced he would be, “Proud to shut down the government for border security,” stating “border security is national security.” Funding for FY 2018 runs out Dec. 21.

Notice that Schumer refuses to make eye contact with the President as he says border security does not need a wall, and Pelosi repeatedly states the meeting should be held privately. Following the meeting at which she admonishingly shook her finger at the president, Pelosi later maligned his position on the border wall telling House Democrats, “It’s like a manhood thing for him. This wall thing.”

Democrat stalwarts, including Sens. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Chuck Schumer, joined a roster of 26 Democrat senators who aligned with 54 Republicans and embraced the Secure Fence Act of 2006, signed by Pres. George W. Bush.  A dozen years later, Democrat’s visceral hatred of President Trump has dramatically changed their perspective.  This brief but illustrative video is provided by the Washington Post, a staunchly liberal publication.

The Center for Immigration Studies reports 63% of non-citizen households access welfare programs compared to 35% of native households. Net cost to taxpayers for every illegal who sneaks into the United States has reached nearly $70,000 —- seven times the cost of deporting them —- about $70 billion, according to 2016 federal Census data. 

Breitbart News covered a Harvard-Harris poll revealing dreadful immigration news for Democrats. The overwhelming majority of Americans —- 80% —- agree with President Trump’s pro-American immigration agenda. Those surveyed said that legal immigration to the U.S. should be based on skills and merit, rather than the current system giving priority to chain migration, linked to family members already in the U.S.

Democrats have long been hypocrites on fundamental issues of importance to Americans, as we noted in 2012, in our post titled, “Dem gun hypocrites,” demonstrating the double standard of Second Amendment restrictionists, Sen. Chuck Schumer and former Sen. Dianne Feinstein who both have concealed carry permits, but don’t want you to have the same access.

Tear gas? Dem hypocrisy, double standard, exposed

November 29, 2018

The mainstream media would have us believe that President Trump is nothing short of a demonic ogre for allowing tear gas to be used at the border to inhibit rock and bottle throwing illegal aliens from storming our sovereign border.

What a bad guy!  What a corrupt administration!

Yet according to data from the Department of Homeland Security first reported in The Washington Times, the identical tear-gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deploying against a border mob last weekend is actually used fairly frequently — including more than once a month during the later years of President Barack Obama’s administration.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has used 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, or CS, since 2010, and deployed it 26 times in fiscal 2012 and 27 times in 2013. It was still being used in 2016, Obama’s final full year in office.

Border authorities also use another agent, pepper spray, frequently — including a decade-high record of 151 instances in 2013, also under Pres. Obama. Pepper spray, officially known as Pava Capsaicin, was used 43 times in fiscal year 2018, according to the CBP numbers.

The data poses a challenge to the current leftwing outrage over the Border Patrol’s use of tear gas Sunday to prevent a frenzied horde of illegals from breaking through sections of old border fence in California.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, questioned the skewed reporting in the strongest of terms, asking where the critics were when tear gas was deployed during Obama‘s presidency.

This policy that we use was an Obama-written policy and it was used in 2013 at the same port of entry,” he told CNN, wondering in particular about the intense media interest now versus then.

Critics, including Latin American leaders, immigrant-rights advocates and congressional Democrats, have said use of tear gas is “un-American.”

“Un-American”? Maybe Obama was born in Kenya, after all?

Watch as Brandon Judd exposes the facts of the border situation in an interview on The Daily Caller TV:


The border. The invasion. The wall. The truth.

November 26, 2018

Standing firm with President Trump on the border

Let’s get this straight.  An estimated 7,000 Central Americans, with thousands more expected, are claiming they are leaving their homelands due to dire conditions and are seeking asylum. Traveling in what are described as caravans, they have passed through Mexico, without asking to be allowed to stay there. It’s America they desire, as they are lured by our taxpayer funded goodies (shocking news video). American citizens are being fed a continual diet of deceit and contrivances about these folks often referred to simply as “migrants.” The accurate descriptive wordsillegal aliens” are now considered pejoratives.

Their desire to be Americans is so great, the mostly young men brandish their own national flags and defiantly hurl rocks at the U.S. Border Patrol agents, boldly displaying their deep desire to enter our country and become acculturated. To gain access, they are now storming the border en masse. Criminals have been found among these sterling folks.

Assimilation is not their goal, nor is asylum, or they would have asked for it when entering Mexico. Overrunning Tijuana, creating havoc and skyrocketing costs to sustain them there, the Mexicans who live in the city are marching in the streets protesting the Central American invaders who are funded by activist organizations and globalist billionaire George Soros. He has long supported Chicago-based La Familia Latina Unita. (Bill O’Reilly video.)

Yet when President Trump declares he will permanently shut down the border if the human avalanche continues across our border, he is derided as lacking compassion.

The political component is all too clear. Radical Democrats want to ensure a borderless society and a permanent leftist voting bloc. The leftwing media vilifies President Trump, and the soon-to-be-installed Democrat House majority is chomping at the bit to bring him down.

The rest of us, those who comprehend the ugly realities, are all too aware that among the left and at universities across our nation, celebrating illegals is the new chic craze. Even following the senseless murder of Kate Steinle shot while walking along the San Francisco pier with her father, the word “deportation” is never uttered, although the Mexican national shooter with a criminal history was previously deported five times. He was acquitted in the murder trial. And across the bay in Oakland, the Democrat mayor has been cheered for warning illegals in advance of ICE raids.

We live in a time when there are no penalties for lawlessness and schools indoctrinate our students to the point where elderly Socialist Bernie Sanders was a big 2016 hit with millennials who lack historical knowledge of its failed regimes. Devoid of understanding, they prefer socialism to capitalism. (Set aside time for this instructive video.) Businessman President Trump deserves our support for his efforts to keep American safe and in the capitalistic realm.


Pres. Trump’s border message resonates with Mexico

November 25, 2018

In a couple of tweets, Pres. Trump sends unambiguous message

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump

Follow @realDonaldTrump

Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court. We only will allow those who come into our Country legally. Other than that our very strong policy is Catch and Detain. No “Releasing” into the U.S…

3:49 PM – 24 Nov 2018

….All will stay in Mexico. If for any reason it becomes necessary, we will CLOSE our Southern Border. There is no way that the United States will, after decades of abuse, put up with this costly and dangerous situation anymore!

3:56 PM – 24 Nov 2018

Reports confirm that the Trump administration has succeeded in gaining Mexican support of a plan to revise U.S. border policy by requiring that those claiming asylum status must wait in Mexico rather than enter the United States.  Currently, illegal foreign nationals — well-coached in asylum lingo — are given a hearing date for which few ever appear, quickly fleeing the border states they illegally invaded and evading authorities who have no verifiable means of tracking them. There was a backlog totaling nearly 750,000 cases as of the end of August. To put that in perspective, check out the populations of the cities on this list. That number exceeds the populations of Denver, Washington, D.C., and Seattle.

The accord is said to have been reached with Mexican officials and senior members of newly elected President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s transition team. Obrador is described as a “populist,“ a term often used to describe Pres. Trump. He will be sworn in on December 1, 2018 to serve a six-year term. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is scheduled to attend Obrador’s inaugural ceremony.

A priority of his agenda will be will be to rein in the escalation of criminal violence. Last year, Mexico experienced a record-breaking 25,400 murders. Armed criminal gangs roam unimpeded, especially in the areas where illegal drug trade dominates the economy.


Tijuana Mexico yells “Uncle!” as invaders create havoc

Tijuana seeks international help to deal with gravity of invasion crisis

With its hypocrisy on full display, the Mexican border town of Tijuana, abutting San Diego, California, is reacting wildly to the thousands of Central Americans jamming its streets and overloading its facilities.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum has gone so far as to declare an international humanitarian crisis over the arrival of an estimated 7,000 supposed “asylum seekers” traveling in  caravans.

Their claims of asylum are clearly false, since they are not seeking safety in Mexico from what they contend are intolerable conditions in their native countries abutting Mexico.

Our not-so-neighborly southern neighbor colluded in allowing them to use its land as a passage to invade the United States. But when President Trump refused to grant border access to the human stampede, the result became untenable for Mexico.

During a Thanksgiving Day press conference Mayor Gastelum solicited help from the United Nations and other international groups to assist Tijuana deal with the mass of invaders he has called an “avalanche,” as he accused the Mexican federal government of neglecting their responsibilities to deal with the unwanted hordes of humanity.

“They have categorically omitted and not complied with their legal obligations,” he said. “So we’re now asking them and international humanitarian aid groups to bring in and carry out humanitarian assistance,” declared Gastelum. He previously said, “Human rights should be reserved for righteous humans,” clearly excluding those he derisively described as a “horde.”

Now that the shoe is on the other foot, Mayor Gastelum appears to “get it.” Native Tijuana residents have stormed their streets marching against the costly Central American invaders flooding their town, taking needed resources from the locals, who also fear increased criminality from the violent MS-13, territorial drug gangsters among the mostly young male invaders and losing jobs to those willing to work cheaper. 

If those concerns sound familiar, the best indicator of their validity is that Gastelum was recently seen wearing a red baseball cap emblazoned with, “Make Tijuana Great Again,” emulating President Trump’s popular election motto.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum finally “gets it.”


Yes, illegals do commit more crimes than citizens

August 24, 2018

Every crime committed by an illegal alien is one that wouldn’t have occurred if that alien wasn’t in the United States in the first place*

Bogged down with busy schedules, most of us go blithely through our lives without thinking about the scourge of violent crime that now permeates our country.  When high profile cases occur, they shake us into acknowledging the hideous truth once again.

The discovery this week of the body of missing Iowa University coed Mollie Tibbetts shook us back to consciousness. The fact that her stalking murderer was an illegal alien from Mexico living in the United States for an estimated 7 years who confessed to the crime, woke us to reality. This narrative has been repeated too often to ignore, as Federation for Immigration Reform reveals.

Yet that is exactly what we are told to do. Anything else exposes bigotry. When conservative U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward linked the fact that the 20-year-old psychology major’s death at the hands of  Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, by “multiple sharp force injuries,” exposed the lack of commitment to a border wall by Arizona’s current senators, she was blasted in the local newspaper. This is a truth that dare not be spoken.

Thursday’s edition of Arizona’s sports and entertainment contrivance passing as a disseminator of news used the USA Today insert to declare in oversized type, “NO…immigrants don’t commit more crimes than US-born people.”

Peter Kirsanow an attorney and President of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights disputes the USA Today premise.

His superb National Review article,Illegal Immigrants and Crime,” exposes the way the left manipulates statistics, with glaring omissions of a multitude of criminal activities that go unreported as the costly crimes they are.

 Kirsanow cites Arizona Department of Corrections data spanning 1985–2017, as John Lott, President of the Crime Prevention Center, calculates that illegal immigrants in Arizona aged 18-35, for example, are 250 percent more likely to commit crimes than young U.S. citizens. Further, such illegal immigrants commit more serious crimes — such as murder, robbery, and sexual assault.

Another study included in his report points out that in Arizona, California, and New York, illegal aliens are convicted of homicide at dramatically higher rates than are native-born citizens and legal residents.

Steven A. Camarota, Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies substantiates those statistics inNon-Citizens Committed a Disproportionate Share of Federal Crimes, 2011-16,” concluding 21% of those convicted of non-immigration crimes were non-citizens — 2.5 times their share of the population.

The Heritage Foundation,* whose quote we used under today’s headline, has a corroborating commentary,What the Media Won’t Tell You About Illegal Immigration and Criminal Activity,” by Hans A. von Spakovsky, Senior Legal Fellow and Grant Strobl, Chairman of Young Americans for Freedom.

The liberal media has an open borders agenda. Sociologists, criminologists, researchers and statisticians deal in facts. It’s time border state Arizonans elect a U.S. Senator with an acknowledged commitment to joining with President Trump in protecting American citizens. We haven’t been represented by John McCain, Jeff Flake, and previously Jon Kyl, who have concentrated their efforts on amnesty for illegals.


AZ Republic: Where agenda trumps fact

August 9, 2018

Deciphering Republicese

The headline blasts, “Donald Trump’s border wall could cost much more than estimated, new report says.”

A few observations when reading the local newspaper, employing a wide range of sufferers of TDS or “Trump Derangement Syndrome“:

  1.  Yes, it’s a long headline. It could have been shorter and more respectful if the word “Donald” was eliminated and replaced with the abbreviated, “Pres.”

      2.  Usage of the word “could”: Could is vague and indefinite, as in the case of may, might, maybe and possibly. If the wall “could” cost much more than estimated, it “could” also cost much less. It depends on the perspective that is intended to be conveyed. The Arizona Republic makes no bones about its messaging, rife with an open-border agenda, hence the usage of the wobbly word, “could.”

     3.  Most egregious error of all: It’s not, “Donald Trump’s border wall.” It’s ours! Americans across this nation voted for candidate Donald Trump. Among the top reasons was the promised construction of a “border wall,” since border security is national security. This principle was reiterated during a speech delivered by President Trump at the Reagan Library in December 2017.

The article was written by Rafael Carranza, described as “covering the U.S.-Mexico border for The Arizona Republic, and contributing to La Voz Arizona.” La Voz is the Spanish language edition. Both papers specialize in highlighting families separated and/or reunited at the southern border, never suggesting that their illegal entry into the U.S. or sending their young children on the arduous journey with strangers claiming to be their parents put them in indefensible predicaments of their own making.

The recent arrest of an illegal in Texas, highlights the problem.  A young girl was sent by her mother with a man, who falsely told authorities he was her father. He had, in fact, repeatedly raped her during the journey.

Would Carranza have gotten this particular assignment if his surname had been O‘Connor or Wong, or does identity politics override all other considerations at the Hillary-endorsing, open borders, far left newspaper?
