Progress is desirable and possible, but not on the basis of pseudo-scientific theoretical novelties and fads which are in many cases merely alibis for moral responsibility and moral training. Science is a mighty weapon, a glittering sword in the hand of civilization. But if civilization permits science to rob it of its moral foundations it will be a case of suicide by falling on its own sword.
With a large percentage of the mayors, city officials, and some high-profile residents of the major Sanctuary Cities taking serious umbrage at President Trump consideration of releasing detained illegal aliens in those cities and only in those cities, are we at sanctuary’s end?
The short answer is, of course, no. These Left-wing politicians and celebrities are not self-aware enough to even recognize their own hypocrisy. Hence, they will maintain the status quo if at all possible so that they can have it both ways, each whenever it suits them.
It’s quite true that illegal immigrants come to America with far more and far worse than the clothes on their backs. They invade our nation carry with them a plethora of diseases and parasites, putting our people – especially our elderly and our children – at risk.
And again, this is quite true despite our domestic enemies’ and their dutiful intelligentsia’s repeated claims to the contrary. Their refutations are nothing but claims that there has been to-date “no significant” impact upon American society from immigrant-borne diseases and parasites. But by what criteria does one judge significance? And, when has America ever had to deal with an invasion of illegals at the scale that we now face?
Our domestic enemies certainly have no consistent of objective answer to the question of significant impact. Just refer to how the scream about measles outbreaks and vilify the anti-vaxxers as some sort of apocalyptic plague bringers. And this is measles we’re talking about, not something far worse for either the victims or society as a whole.
Measles Mortality Risks:
1:10,000 (0.01%) of measles cases are fatal
3-3.5:10,000 (0.03–0.035%) of measles cases result in seizure
1:20,000 (0.005%) of measles cases result in measles encephalitis
1:80,000 (0.00125%) of cases result in permanent disability
7:1,000 (0.7%) of cases are hospitalized
Yet they utterly ignore America’s most lethal and widespread disease, the common, ordinary, nameless Flu, which has an 18% mortality rate and claims the lives of 36,000 Americans annually, again mostly small children and the elderly.
Yeah, those sorts who will say anything to refute the clear and present dangers and health risks that illegals present to Americans have no measurable basis for their stance on the issue. Then, like with most things, our domestic enemies’ stance on this is based upon Identity Politics and hate, not statistics or other repeatable facts.
Well, even if Pelosi has never read anything else, she seems to have read and internalized Obama’s Audacity of Hope. Her attitude towards reaching any form of compromise with President Trump and thereby ending the current partial government shutdown certainly match Obama’s prescription for similar things.
Or, it could be mere coincidence. After all, Pelosi has the only reason she needs to refuse to do anything resembling responsible leadership of the House – Donald Trump was elected as POTUS.
Unlike Obama Era empty rhetoric, this is a real Red Line. It has been drawn between our President, acting in the national security interests of the People and to deliver upon one of his campaign promises, and the Democrats, who will do anything to stop our President from doing anything.
Yes, Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise is sort of right about the Dems’ petulant obstruction of President Trump’s desire for a wall to be built across the more at-risk areas of our nation’s southern border. Depending on how you read things, e.g., “border security,” and which Democrat-initiated measures during the Obama Regime one wants to reference, the Dems asked for anywhere between 5 and 10 times the money that President Trump has asked for to fence off that same border.
But then, border security measures and anything associated with such weren’t bad things – and certainly not racist – until Donald Trump did what was unthinking to the Dems, get elected POTUS.
