Sanctuary Evil

This past week, President Trump announced that it was being considered and reviewed that overcrowded detainment facilities would be relieved by releasing (by court order) the illegal immigrants into sanctuary cities and states. Of course, the Leftist Mayors, Governors, and various Congress-critters predictably howled with outrage, charging the President with almost every accusation under the sun.

Quite frankly, I’m sitting back with equal parts being amused, laughing, and somewhat sad.

The amused and laughing parts are at the amazingly nova-bright in-your-face hypocrisy of the Left. For the past couple of years, they have been screaming about the inhumane conditions and cruelty of the illegal immigrants being kept in detainment centers. They have touted the benefits of the illegal immigrants – diversity, increased economic prosperity, and lower crime(!). When it’s announced that they may get more of their cherished illegal immigrants, then they scream about the inhumanity and cruelty of releasing those same illegal immigrants into cities that have publicly proclaimed themselves of being open and welcome to illegal immigrants.

Which is it? Open city or closed city? Good illegals or bad illegals? President Trump has the Left holding their pants up in the corner that they have put themselves in with no way out. It’s about time someone has shown these morons what hypocrites they really are.

The sad part comes into a couple of categories.

The first is for the immigrants themselves. Most, not all, are looking for nothing more than survival and a better life. I fully understand that, but that’s where my sympathy ends. Crashing through a country’s border and then having to look over your shoulder for the rest of your life is no way to live. You would always be illegal, and probably being taken advantage of as well. There are better ways to do this the right way.

The second are for the citizens of the towns, cities, and states (mostly in California) that have declared themselves as sanctuaries for the illegal immigrants. I don’t know if the citizenry voted/approved of the sanctuary status for their locations, but I’m fairly sure that once the influx hits, job availability will go down, wages will go down, and crime will go up. I’m sure that once the pain hits, the citizens will want change, but I’m not wholly sure if they will connect the actions of their elected officials with the problems and vote someone in that isn’t a Liberal Democrat.

What is evil about the whole situation is that the Liberal Democrats have put their political power above their sworn duty to serve the citizens that elected them. They are using the illegal immigration issue, in part, to solidify their hold on power. By using this issue, they are using the illegal immigrants – people – to further this agenda.

In other words, they are hurting thousands of people, citizens and illegals, to acquire power. Folks, that’s a type of cynical evil that I’m appalled at.

I hope that the people of these cities, towns, and states stand up to this evil, shout “Enough!!”, and can these twits as soon as possible. The sooner they wake up, the better.

I have my doubts that will happen anytime soon, but that’s another post for another time.

Power Play – Part 1

Friends, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything.  Life, work, holidays, etc. all seem to take up the time that I would normally use to write.  Now it’s grabbing what time I have to take a breath or two and organize my thoughts.

Last month, the Democrats were elected to take control of the House next year, and the Republicans retained control of the Senate.  I fear that there will be nothing but chaos and confusion coming out of the House as the Democrats have it in their minds to target the President for nothing more than political persecution.  Also buried in the mess of things the Democrats want to address will be healthcare, gun control, taxes, and immigration. Nothing good will come from the Democrats being in the House.

The Democrats should look at France, and the open rebellion the French have against President Macron over taxes, immigration, and the lack of apparent accountability & empathy the Macron administration has for the citizens.  I read that a gallon of diesel fuel is over $7.00, and 65% of that is taxes. President Macron wants a 6% increase to fund a green agenda. In a country of where people run out of a monthly paycheck in three weeks, there is definitely a disconnect.

The European Union has an immigration problem (this is also part of the issue in France).  The EU governing body (unelected, from what I understand) has dictated immigration quotas for each country.  Migrants/refugees stream in, and countries like Germany & France displace their own citizens & support them with welfare.  This is something that the Democrats also want – unlimited immigrants to this country and support them with tax dollars in the hope that the immigrants will vote Democrat, keeping them in power.

Immigration is always a touchy subject for some people.  For me, immigrants must follow the rule of law to come into our country, whether it’s to work, study, become a citizen, or to seek asylum.  There are standards and laws that must be followed, but the Democrats don’t seem to care. “It’s for the children!” they cry. Cow patties, I say!  It’s about power and control.

Invariably, the question comes up why don’t these people who want to crash through our borders stay in their own countries and fix their country’s problems?  I’ve got a few thoughts on that:

First, many of these countries are dictatorships with failing economies (think Venezuela).  Governments that are oppressive to their people, sometimes brutally. This usually leads to a two-class society – the privileged and poor – without hardly any opportunity to advance.  Survival is now the goal.

Second, gang violence.  There are reports of gangs ruling the streets in conjunction with government approval floating around on the Internet.  If true, another reason to leave especially with the next point –

Third and last on my short list – gun control.  Most if not all of these countries have repressive forms of gun control.  Only the government (dictators) and criminals (gangs) have weapons, and the citizens have no form of self defence against either.  After all, why should you arm people who represent a threat to your power?

All of the above points represent portions of the the Democrat’s agenda – immigrants that will vote to keep the Party in power, tax burdens to support the immigrants to buy their fealty & to impoverish the citizenry (if you’re working to survive, you don’t have time to rebel), and disarm those that would rebel.

The Democrats double down on this power grab by apparent voter fraud.  California’s “ballot harvesting” is probably one of the most egregious forms of fraud I have ever seen.  Having the dead vote and the miraculous appearance of ballots during the aftermath of elections only confirms what I suspect.  The exclamation point is during seven contested elections of where the Republican candidate was leading, the elections were won by the Democratic candidate – this defies the odds and common sense.

And it just doesn’t stop there…

The political parties pass laws that affect the people they represent, but exempt themselves from those very laws.  The prime example of this is the ACA, otherwise known as Obamacare. And what laws they do pass that they would fall under, they are not prosecuted.  The prime example of this is the multiple instances of Hillary Clinton’s favoritism to donors of the Clinton Foundation and security breaches with emails.  There is a blatant disregard of laws by the ruling elite, and anyone with half a brain can see the hypocrisy, the lies, and the crimes committed by the politicians who wish to have unfettered rule.

It’s no wonder the people of the United States do not have confidence in their government nor in the political party’s abilities to represent them nor confine themselves to the Constitution.

So where do we go from here?  I hope to address this in Part 2.

Shutdown!

Last night, the Senate failed to pass a temporary spending bill that would keep the Federal government running. Here’s the immediate aftermath of that action:

The sun still came up.

No one has immediately keeled over & died as a result.

The lights are still on.

The Earth has not fallen into the sun.

In other words, dispite the dire predictions of Schumer, Pelosi, & other members of the WAH!* Party, the world and universe have not come to an end.

Dispite the lack of funding for “non-essential services,” I fully expect that the impact upon the average American to be minimal under the Trump Administration. This would stand in full contrast of the previous Obummer Administration, whose goal was to make it as painful as possible for the citizens so as to blame the Republicans for the inconvenience.

So what’s the issue? Here’s a good synopsis:

““Hostage-taking” is the term that was used in 2013 when Ted Cruz and a few other Republicans blocked government funding to try to force repeal of ObamaCare. You can’t deny people essential government services just because you didn’t get your way on some other policy! Now here we are, five years later, and Democrats are prepared to deny those same services because they haven’t gotten their way on a DREAM amnesty with essentially no strings attached.”  Allapundit @ Townhall.com

So this all comes down to what to do with the children of illegal immigrants who are here illegally, who are not citizens, and who are facing deportation in accordance to the laws of this country.

A question for the WAH! Party – Is this issue something that you want to hang your futures on?

The WAH! Party is in bad shape. They are heavily in debt as a result of the Obummer and Hildebeast campaigns. The apparent acrimony in the election of their co-chairs is still evident in their lack of fundraising. The treatment of Bernie is still rubbing a good portion of the Party members the wrong way. And the message that the co-chairs are sending out is appeals only to the leaches that depend upon the WAH! Party for sustenance – flyover country is not impressed. Last is that after the defeat of the Hildebeast, no one in the party is really positioned to make a run for the Presidency – they all have baggage that would send them to the bottom of the Marianas Trench.

Their solution is to push for the amnesty and full citizenship of the Dreamers. These children and young adults have come from countries where the government rules over the citizens, and the educational systems in this country has leaned toward Socialism for years. Should the Dreamers be granted citizenship with the resulting chain migration continue unabated, the WAH! Party would have a voter base of roughly 900,000+ to build upon. This is their long-term goal – a power play to get a their majority back and lock up the elections for decades to come.

This is the issue that the WAH! Party wants to shut the government down for – getting consessions for people who are essentailly criminals, putting their party ahead of the citizens of this country. Considering who they backed for the last election, perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised.

If anyone is paying attention, the WAH! Party does not have the American People rights and priveledges as part of their focus. It’s keeping themselves in power, and damned be the consequences to the United States.

Breitbart has this to say about the DREAM Act:

…working and middle-class Americans would be put in further competition for U.S. jobs against up to 3.5 million newly legalized foreign nationals. A recent report found that 1 in 5 illegal aliens given amnesty under the DREAM Act would end up on food stamps and nearly 1 in 7 would end up on Medicaid, further straining the social safety net for America’s poor.

And in the same article, here’s a partial quote (which I’ve seen from other sources) from Senator Dick Durban (D-IL):

“I’m focused on one thing — not that meeting — but on making sure that those who are being protected by DACA and eligible for the DREAM Act have a future in America. I am focused on that full time.”

Enough said.

End of Year 2017

For some reason, I’m finding it very hard to sit down and write a post at this time of year. Usually, I like to take a look back at the year that is almost complete and review the impressions that it has made upon the country. This year, it’s a mixture of highs and lows. Let me explain.

The election and swearing in of Donald Trump as President of the United States was certainly a high point for several reasons. The big one (at least for me) was the rejection of the American People of the corrupt Democratic candidate as well as a thumb in the eye of the establishment politicians. The stock market has taken off as a result, the economy is up, and jobs (for those people looking for them) are becoming available as companies are becoming more optimistic about the future. In general, the country appears to be breathing a sigh of relief that President Trump is working out better than expected. Unless, of course, you’re a Leftist Democrat…

The Democrats are still bitching and moaning about President Trump’s election, and doing their damnedest to smear and otherwise demean the man. I still think that they are sore losers, and the shenanigans that they are pulling are wearing thin. The first of this smearing is the accusation the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to sway the election.

I’m finding it fascinating that in the months since the allegation was made, not one shred of evidence has been uncovered that directly links the campaign with the Russians. Of course, this means (at least to the Democrats) that there is a link that needs to be found and duly investigated. But since that time, several links to the Democratic Party’s campaign have been found (and recently, with the Green Party as well), but we’re supposed to ignore those. But I’m not surprised in some respects…

The recent discovery of links of Special Council Mueller being politically biased against the President along with several of his investigators is troubling at best. Any sane person would expect that Mueller would recuse himself immediately along with his team of investigators. Failing that, Attorney General Sessions should grow a spine, sack Mueller, and replace him with verified neutral & objective investigators. This is the only way to restore any form of credibility to a politically charged investigation.

The next smear is the continued allegation that President Trump is a sexual predator, pointing back to the leaked tape of what was supposed to be a semi-private comment to a reporter that. Now in my mind, there is a huge difference about talking about an act vs. actually committing that act. To the best of my knowledge, there is no credible evidence that President Trump did anything but talk. However…

There has come to light massive amounts of evidence that many Congresscritters and their supporters, mostly Democrat, having assaulted numerous women and covered it up (some with taxpayer hush money). If we want to go back to President Kennedy, his brother Ted, President Clinton, and Hollywood Mogul and Democratic supporter Harvey Weinstein, then the Democrats have absolutely no moral high ground to point fingers. Those incidents have proof, and are documented. I do expect, that these sorts of attacks will continue upon both President Trump and any Republican candidate since Roy Moore was defeated in Alabama during a special election among charges of sexual impropriety from 30+ years ago.

But let’s not worry about any kind of accountability for real crimes…

Why are people like Felonia von Pantsuit and her husband (with multiple accomplices) not being held accountable for the pay-to-play schemes such as Uranium One scandal, using their foundation as a money-laundering business, real collusion with the Russians, and multiple other felonies such as lying to the FBI, destroying government property, national security violations, & so on? That is what the investigators should be focusing on, not something made up to cast doubt and focus attention elsewhere.

Moving on…

The Republican-controlled Congress failed in their campaign promise of repealing ObamaCare. The best excuse that I can find is that they didn’t expect Trump to win the election, and were caught flat-footed without any legislation ready to go. They certainly didn’t help themselves when proposing a half-assed bill that was sunk by members of their own party. Some of these morons will not be returning to Congress come mid-term elections, and are facing challengers from their own party for their seat. I personally think that they were expecting Felonia von Pantsuit to be elected, and they could position themselves as being the voice of reason against the evil successor to the first Black president, although I have my doubts that they would have a spine or the testicular fortitude to oppose the first woman president…

Now the Republicans are moving forward with a tax-reform bill that has passed the House and Senate, although there appears to be a couple of procedural hiccups as this post is being written. I fully expect the bill to be passed and signed into law by the President. From what I understand from the language that has been analyzed, it’s a mixed bag. Overall, I think it will be good for most Americans. The losers will be in high taxation states such as California and New York. Perhaps those voters need to look at and pay attention to what their state legislators are spending their hard-earned tax money on…

…Such as protection for illegal aliens…

The “cool” thing for cities and states to do to show their independence and disrespect for President Trump & the Federal government is to declare themselves as “sanctuary cities” or in the case of California, a “sanctuary state.” These mayors, governers and other officials are now using taxpayer money to clothe, house, and defend the deportation of people who violated Federal immigration laws (i.e., criminals). These officials tend not to discriminate between hard-core criminals and those just seeking a better life for themselves and their families. In other words, they are favoring criminals over the safety and well being of their citizens.

I can think of no better example of this that the case of Kathryn Steinle who was murdered (in my opinion) in San Francisco (a sanctuary city) by an illegal immigrant with multiple violations (including seven felonies). The immigrant, Garcia Zarate, was arrested and released from custody even though the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement had a detainer issued against him. Zarate late found a gun, discharged it, and the bullet killed Steinle. Zarate was later aquitted of all murder charges (including involuntary manslaughter). In other words, if San Francisco was not a sanctuary city and complied with the Federal detention order, an American citizen would still be alive.

Other examples can be found throughout the country – illegal immigrants with criminal records being released to later commit crimes of theft, DUI, and murder. All sanctioned by elected officials violating their oaths of office and the laws of this country.

Why, in the name of all that is Holy, do we allow our elected officials to protect criminals?

Folks, I could go on and on about the ills of chain immigration policies, DACA, the identity politics practiced by the Democratic Party, and the Left’s claims of being tolerant only to qualified same-thinking people, and so on, but that is more time that I just do not have for this year.

Instead, I would like to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Where Do We Start? (Continued)

The hoopla over the past week over the illegal immigration issue and the supporters continued this past week, and probably will for a while.  It doesn’t matter if President Trump does exactly the same thing as his predecessors in ordering law enforcement to round up and deport illegal immigrants or not – his opponents will continue to oppose his every move, and call him every name in the book.

May I remind the members of the WAH! Partytm of what then President Clinton did through his AG Janet Reno with the following picture?

eg

And yet, only in California can an illegal act take precedence over public safety:

Enough said – moving on…

The WAH! Partytm continues it’s opposition to every nominee to President Trump’s Cabinet, delaying every appointment as long as possible.  Quite frankly, it’s disgraceful – in the Harvard-Harris poll provided exclusively by The Hill:

The survey found that 73 percent of voters want to see Democrats work with the president, against only 27 percent who said Democrats should resist Trump’s every move.

Enough already – your actions are an embarrassment to all Americans and diminish your Party’s credibility.

Fake News – defined as making up news stories to fit a particular agenda.  Literally hours after President Trump accused the Media of faking news in an unprecedented one-on-many unscripted news conference, the Associated Press published a news story that stated that the President would call up the National Guard to round up all illegal immigrants.  The story has been categorically denied by the White House, and has been debunked by several other sources as well.

And the Media wonders why the general public doesn’t believe a word they publish…

But the media has claimed it’s first victim – Michael Flynn – through leaks from the Intelligence Department.  As pointed out by President Trump in his news conference earlier this week, such actions are illegal, and would be investigated.

Last, a personal thought – I do hope that the WAH! Partytm through their surrogate Progressive Liberal Democratic Party and supporting Media outlets continues their antics and p****s off every American from now until they lose every single office from the local to the state to the Federal level.  Perhaps then we’ll get rid of the cancer that is known as Progressivism.
