War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
Make no mistake about it. I fully consider the ongoing mass invasion of Central and South Americans into our country to be an act of war. And, the extortive list of monetary and political demands by the Mexican President to do anything to quell influx of invaders to equally and act of war. Similarly, I fully consider the Biden administrations dismantling of most of our nation’s protections at out southern border and their attacks upon state governments who stepped up to fill the gap to be acts of treason in every meaningful way except to particulars of that federal law.
But, I also believe in compassion. As such, I fully endorse letting the women and children, especially the nubile women, into America. And, in their cases, I also fully endorse the stratagem put forth by some Democrat politicians to accept them into our homes. 😉
Creepy Uncle Joe has ranted time and time again that there was no way he’d ever expand our nation’s southern border’s wall to decrease the ungodly amount of illegal aliens invading our country. But he just did exactly that. On Wednesday, October 7th, 2023, the Biden administration announced it would build an approximately 20-mile section of border wall in high-traffic crossing areas in Texas, This announcement that stood in stark contrast to then-candidate Joe Biden’s 2020 declaration that he would not build “another foot of wall” as POTUS.
Now, Biden himself claims that he had to do this whether he wants to or not, which he claims he didn’t, and that it will serve not purpose to do it, but that he has no choice in the matter.
The money was appropriated for the border wall. I tried to get them to reappropriate, to redirect that money. They didn’t. They wouldn’t. In the meantime, there’s nothing under the law other than they have to use the money for what it was appropriated for. I can’t stop that.
But there’s two glaring problems with the dodderer’s demurrals: one, he had to waive – i.e., legally violate through fiat powers – 26 federal environmental laws to start the project; and, two, his administrations, even his Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, who’s always been staunchly on the side of the Hispanic invaders, defended the Biden administration’s wall building as being absolutely necessary to address an “acute and immediate need to construct physical barriers and roads in the vicinity of the border of the United States in order to prevent unlawful entries into the United States.”
So no, he didn’t have to build more walls. He could have just not used the appropriated tax monies, shielding his administration if legally necessary. After all, Democrats launched multiple federal lawsuits again President Trump in a failed attempt to use those very laws to prevent him from building the wall.
What has really happened is that Biden’s handlers, nannies, and nurses have been forced to realize – mostly from the screaming, desperate complaints from politicians and the citizenry in Deep Blue areas, e.g., New York and Massachusetts – that President Trump was right. But, of course, they can’t ever, ever, ever admit that.
Sad but true – and far too timely and relevant. When fishing without a license – and let’s not even begin to talk about hunting – is more criminal than being an illegal alien, it’s time to replace the government.
Even worse, when it comes to the federal level of government, i.e., the POTUS and Congress, after what the Dems did in the 2020 elections I can’t even honestly say that replacing the government through normatively accepted means, the ballot box, would even prove effective.
But, when it’s time to replace to replace the government, it’s time. Do with that assertion and counsel what you will.
This is the sad truth. If you import the Third World, your nation will become the Third World. We’ve seen it across Europe and we’re seeing it in America.
It’s simply what happens when you either allow millions of Third-Worlders to invade your country or bring them in wholesale as “refugees.” They don’t want to become part of America and they bring their many, many incompatible cultural norms with them with no plans whatsoever to change. And, worse for Americans, we don’t have refugee camps like Europe does, so these foreigners are dumped into our population, swamping our infrastructure and support services as well as putting our people in danger.
The above, however, does not mean I advocate eliminating all immigration, nor that I want immigration limited to only people from other First World nations. But I do believe we need higher bars on immigrants and that these immigrants must be required to be “Good Immigrants.” I believe that approaching all forms of immigration should be done via an “America First” ideal.
President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt summed up how American immigration should be handled in 1894 and nothing’s changed since then… because right and wrong and wise and foolish don’t change.
The mighty tide of immigration to our shores has brought in its train much of good and much of evil; and whether the good or the evil shall predominate depends mainly on whether these newcomers do or do not throw themselves heartily into our national life, cease to be Europeans, and become Americans like the rest of us. More than a third of the people of the Northern States are of foreign birth or parentage. An immense number of them have become completely Americanized, and these stand on exactly the same plane as the descendants of any Puritan, Cavalier, or Knickerbocker among us, and do their full and honorable share of the nation’s work. But where immigrants, or the sons of immigrants, do not heartily and in good faith throw in their lot with us, but cling to the speech, the customs, the ways of life, and the habits of thought of the Old World which they have left, they thereby harm both themselves and us. If they remain alien elements, unassimilated, and with interests separate from ours, they are mere obstructions to the current of our national life, and, moreover, can get no good from it themselves. In fact, though we ourselves also suffer from their perversity, it is they who really suffer most. It is an immense benefit to the European immigrant to change him into an American citizen.
It is urgently necessary to check and regulate our immigration, by much more drastic laws than now exist; and this should be done both to keep out laborers who tend to depress the labor market, and to keep out races which do not assimilate readily with our own, and unworthy individuals of all races – not only criminals, idiots, and paupers, but anarchists. From his own standpoint, it is beyond all question the wise thing for the immigrant to become thoroughly Americanized. Moreover, from our standpoint, we have a right to demand it. We freely extend the hand of welcome and of good-fellowship to every man, no matter what his creed or birthplace, who comes here honestly intent on becoming a good United States citizen like the rest of us; but we have a right, and it is our duty, to demand that he shall indeed become so and shall not confuse the issues with which we are struggling by introducing among us Old-World quarrels and prejudices. There are certain ideas which he must give up. For instance, he must learn that American life is incompatible with the existence of any form of anarchy.
I will point out though, that Roosevelt’s primary concerns were over the sloth and tendency towards outright anarchism of certain European immigrants, especially the Irish. Still, his beliefs hold true as the course of wisdom even – perhaps more so – when scope of immigrants extends to the whole of the world, with its many cultures, many of which are antithetical to America’s culture and social norms.
We don’t need immigrants that just bring their problems and problematical mores with them, and we shouldn’t tolerate their being here. We neither need nor should accept foreigners into our land who just want our money and not to become Americans themselves.
But, I also am not heartless; nor do I advocate completely heartless immigration reform. I do think that we need to set the bar much lower for women, especially women with children. The West in general, and America in particular is far better for them than most places they’d be coming from and I’m sanguine with turning them away as a normal course of action. Many of them are truly fleeing real atrocities and, while we have no duty to shelter them, doing so is a charity we can afford.
A federal judge, Judge T. Kent Wetherell II, in an evening session on Thursday, May 11, 2023, blocked the Biden and Co. from implementation a policy that would allow for the release without court dates – just hours before the end of the Title 42 public health order.
Judge T. Kent Wetherell II imposed a two-week restraining order on the Biden administration policy, which would release illegal immigrants into the US population without a court date or any means of tracking them. The only “restriction” upon their “parole” would be that they would be requested to ask for a court appearance by mail, or to make an appointment at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office.
Think about that! Biden and Co. are trying to release 10,000 or more illegal invaders a day into our country with no means of tracking them or any real plans to deal with them at all.
Fortunately, an American judge has granted us a reprieve and, hopefully, the Courts will disallow this in perpetuity. If they don’t things are going to very bad and very dangerous soon, and that’s going to made worse by the Dems and their ilk villifying and prosecuting any and all Americans who take the needed steps to protect themselves, their families, and their communities from these released invaders.
