Some time ago, I wrote an article talking about how insanely hypocritical it was for Democrats and Leftists to say that they are “doing the Lord’s work” or something to that extent when opposing Trump, or simply being their Leftist selves. Well, that also applies to establishment Republicans who for some reason feel as though they can speak for God now.
In an interview with CNN, John Kasich said the following:
“You know, we have a caravan coming north. We don’t want all those people coming across our border, and there are ways to deal with it. I believe if we could check those who are legitimately in need of asylum, could be vetted before they even get to the border. But you know what? We’re born in America. You know how lucky we are to be born in America and not be born in Guatemala where they would say to your daughter, you know, if you don’t do what we want, we will rape your daughter or we will kill your son if he’s not a drug mule? Now they’re marching north, and you know what? It could easily have been all of us, that we’re in the caravan, that we’re marching north trying to save our families and save our children… If we have been spared… by the grace of God, let us be appreciative, let us count our blessings, and let us reach out to those who have less. And let’s stop putting up walls around ourselves and not understanding the plight, the trouble, and the problems of others. It is not right. And the Lord doesn’t want it…”
That is a lot to cover, so let’s go little by little. Overall, I both agree and disagree with what he is saying.
People born in the U.S. SHOULD count their blessings for being born in the greatest nation on Earth. And we SHOULD try and help people who need help. In fact, doing so is very much a Christian thing to do.
However, there is a difference between helping people and being forced to take care of them.
Not to mention that the border wall isn’t meant to drive away immigrants. It’s meant to drive away ILLEGAL immigrants.
John Kasich believes that we should “help” these people. The problem comes in the fact that it’s likely dangerous people, like members of MS-13, are part of this caravan. Letting these people in means many, and I mean MANY, dangerous people seeing our compassion and exploiting it, entering the country and hurting Americans.
We should not be helping people if that comes at the expense of America and Americans. And we certainly should not be guilt-tripped into helping people who very well could come in to exploit our system at best and harm Americans at worst.
Besides, let’s not ignore that we do help people, or at least their countries of origin. We give over $120 million to Honduras alone annually (though that number is bound to come down after this). So our government does try and help other countries.
But it shouldn’t fall on us to babysit them. It shouldn’t fall on us to take these people in, particularly in this way, and sacrifice Americans’ livelihoods, jobs, etc. We have to take care of our people first, and that’s not what the Democrats and establishment Republicans seem to want.
We especially should not be made to believe that it is our fault that other countries are poorer than us. Socialism is killing Venezuela. It’s also slowly, but surely killing other countries as well. I’ve mentioned in the past that the only time Argentina was prosperous was when it abandoned socialism at least economically, through deregulation and such.
We are as rich and plentiful as we are because our capitalist system of government and economics are built to help people be prosperous. Key word “help”. It doesn’t guarantee or make it a right that people be prosperous. You have the right to the PURSUIT of happiness, not a right to given happiness.
But let’s focus a bit more on Kasich bringing God into the mix. He claims that God doesn’t want us to surround ourselves in walls. He’s wrong on this as well. You have to keep in mind what the wall is meant to do. Like I said earlier, it’s not meant to keep immigrants out. It’s meant to keep ILLEGAL immigrants out.
It’s meant to secure our border and protect our people. It’s a national security issue just as much as an immigration issue. Not to speak for God, but I believe He would want us to be safe. After all, He instructed and led Nehemiah to build a wall too. And Jerusalem currently has a wall that keeps Hamas and other Islamic terrorists out of the promised land (that was promised to the Jews, not Muslims or any other type of Gentile).
Why have those walls? To protect the people inside. That’s what Trump’s border wall is meant to do.
We are a country that welcomes immigrants. Heck, we ARE a nation of immigrants. But the difference between the immigrants that came from Europe and the ones that are marching to our border is that the world was far different, with far different laws and dangers to be met.
Not to mention that the pilgrims set out for America to be free to express their religious beliefs without fear of persecution from the Crown.
On the other hand, these illegals are fleeing their crappy countries to enter the country illegally and forcefully, very much like an invading force.
A border wall can stop such an invading force, and there is no honest person who should oppose prioritizing the safety of our people.
I won’t be too harsh on Kasich here because he is not completely wrong with what he’s saying. He’s wrong about the purpose of wanting a wall. He’s certainly wrong about what he thinks Trump’s intentions are with a wall. But he’s not wrong that we should help people.
However, that’s what we’re already doing. Allowing an invading force to enter the country like this will not help those people and certainly will not help us. If we don’t help ourselves, how could we possibly help others?
Regarding the caravan itself, I have already written an article surrounding that topic, so there’s not much else for me to say that would be too different from what I said in that article.
The larger point I wanted to make here is that Kasich is wrong in believing God doesn’t want a border wall. I won’t claim to know what God does or does not want. I cannot fully understand what God wants because I cannot fully understand Him, being one of His creations with a limited mind. However, I do believe He wants us to be safe from the dangers of this world and a border wall would help towards that end.
Not to mention that, in order to help people, they also have to help themselves. The governments of Central America, maybe with some exceptions, are largely central in their power. Meaning that government is everything and they keep expanding it, bringing in more socialism into the mix. We want to help other countries, but those countries also have to do their part in implementing a system where they are not reliant on us for so much.
I’m all for helping others. But that help should not be a one-way street. That help should not be rewarded with being invaded by illegals, likely many of whom look to exploit our system all-the-while trashing it and us, and maybe even harming people by raping young girls and/or killing them.
America and Americans must always come first. I want to help Americans first. Otherwise, how could we help anyone else?

One of the biggest stories this week, which will likely continue being as big, or even bigger in the days and weeks to come, is the fact that anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 illegal immigrants are marching towards the United States, likely seeking “asylum”. It will soon be clear why I am putting that in quotation marks.
Anyway, I say that the caravan is in that range because I have seen multiple different numbers. Many report 5,000 to 7,000, while others like the Daily Wire report 10,000, so it’s not entirely clear which number is most accurate. But regardless of the actual number, that is a lot of people staging what can only be described as an invasion, even if it is an unarmed (though I imagine many people are armed) invasion of the U.S., which is the reason Trump is perfectly justified in using the military to stop this caravan, if that is the route he opts in taking.
However, reading the title, you must know that there is something within this story that yours truly sees as a good thing. I can assure you, I am not becoming a Leftist. I’d rather bathe in a tub of acid than be a Leftist.
I am, however, seeing what can be considered the big picture here. Allow me to explain.
Reading the news of the caravan starting up, leaving Honduras, swelling in size, and forcefully pushing past Mexican police and MPs, how does that make you feel? I imagine disturbed at the very least, or even downright terrified. If so, you can be safe in knowing that you are not alone in this.
While the Democrats might see this caravan as a good thing (without necessarily saying that outright) and while they might choose to ignore it as though it’s not happening, we can’t help but acknowledge it and see it as a very bad thing.
Let’s not beat around the bush. This is an invasion. With this many people, likely being helped in being fed, sheltered, etc. (likely by George Soros, but I can’t prove that), all seeking “asylum”, you can’t help but think of this as an invasion. And by the way, I put asylum in quotation marks because these people aren’t seeking asylum from their own countries. If you’ve seen the pictures, you’ll see some people waving the Honduran flag, the Mexican flag and whatever country’s flag these people are from.
If they were seeking asylum or refuge from those countries, they wouldn’t be proudly flying those countries’ flags. When have you seen a North Korean defector waving the North Korean flag? Or a Cuban escapee waving the Cuban flag? When have you seen someone escaping oppression, socialism, etc. waving the flag and proudly representing the country they just “escaped” from?
These aren’t refugees, or asylum seekers, or immigrants. They are invaders.
Knowing all of this, don’t you think this will make Americans like me and you want a border wall at the Southern border? The reason the Great Wall of China was initially built was because during the Qin Dynasty, the First Emperor of Qin wanted to prevent invasion from northern nations. Sure, later it was used to protect Silk Road trade, but it was initially built to guard China from invasion.
Likewise, we see something similar. We have nations down south who don’t want to invade the country themselves, waging war against us, but nations who allow their people to illegally migrate to another country en masse.
It may not be any one particular nation that is the invading force of this caravan, but it is those nations’ people who are forcefully making their way here, all-the-while still representing their countries of origin through the proud waving of their flags.
The idea of a foreign entity invading the U.S. is downright terrifying and should put everyone on edge. This is what we are facing right now, so we have to come up with viable solutions. Allowing this caravan entry into the country means other caravans popping up and doing the same, eventually leading to the utter invasion and transformation of the U.S. away from its founding principles (which are already under attack by the Left anyway) and into a country similar to the rest of the continent.
The blessing in disguise that this caravan brings is that people might become more warm to the idea of a border wall.
When Trump initially came up with the idea of building a “big, beautiful wall” in our border with Mexico, many people loved it, but many people also hated it. The media, unsurprisingly, was adamantly against it, as were the Democrats.
But given how toxic the Left has shown themselves to truly be, I imagine there will be more and more people choosing to vote Republican this November. As time goes on, the media has been a little less adamant to claim victory of a “blue wave”, saying that it might be a close race. Even DNC Chairman Tom Perez recently said that “we (Democrats) always knew that this election was going to be close.”
At the start of the year, everyone was making the same claims that they were making in 2016: Trump is going to lose, Democrats are going to win in the biggest landslide ever, blah, blah, blah.
And now, he says it’s going to be close?
This sort of thing tends to be the case as the race grows near. People become slightly less confident and think it will be closer than previously anticipated. But this sort of thing, coming after a year of touting a blue wave that would sweep the Republicans and crush Trump, is indicative that the Democrats legitimately fear there will be no such blue wave.
Why? Because their attitude and actions have been so toxic that they’re driving people away. Not that they would ever admit to that, of course, but the results will show. The “#WalkAway” movement started for a reason and I believe it has far more traction than the Left believes it has.
This caravan can only help Republicans and Trump come November. It’s indicative of the failed immigration policies of the Democrats that have slowly, but surely been eating away at our border safety, leading millions to enter the country illegally. Now, we have large groups of people forcefully making their way to the U.S., not in the hopes of assimilating, being part of our capitalistic economic system, but in the hopes of exploiting it at best and changing it at worst.
Trump, for his part, is rightly putting the blame on the Democrats. It’s THEIR immigration policy and lack of enforcing immigration laws that has led to this invasion.
Now, the ironic thing is that a recent NBC/WSJ poll, which has Trump at a record high of 47% approval rating (record high for the poll itself), says that Democrats are ahead when it comes to the issue of immigration (up by 4 points on Repubs). Meaning that likely voters trust Democrats a little more on immigration than they do the GOP.
Well, while I find that awfully suspicious given Trump’s high approval in the poll itself and given that immigration is what Trump won on, I doubt such an advantage is actually there. It might’ve been back during the summer when the Left were screaming at Trump over keeping kids in cages (which is what Obama was doing, but no one pay attention to that) and separating kids from their parents (which Clinton started, but again, no one pay attention to that). That’s when Democrats might’ve taken the lead in immigration, but definitely not now.
And with this caravan, there’s no way people aren’t at the very least disturbed by it enough to want to build a wall.
I hate the idea of a caravan of illegals making their way to the U.S. I imagine many people feel the same way. But while Trump might be able to stop this caravan, and God-willing he will, what’s to stop another caravan in the future from popping up?
Trump won’t be President for life like his Chinese counter-part. Eventually, someone else will be President. Hopefully a Republican, but who’s to say that they would be able, or even willing, to stop a future caravan?
A wall, on the other hand, is imposing and permanent (unless you tear it down, of course, but you get my point). A wall would/will be more able to stop invaders. Of course, it will also have to be accompanied by actual enforcement of our immigration laws, but a wall is at least a start.
This caravan, quite frankly, terrifies me. I am not in a border state, so I will not be directly affected by this, but the number of people coming in here illegally, who will definitely be voting Democrat because Democrats don’t care about voting laws (or any laws that don’t benefit them), as well as the fact that, if not stopped, this will definitely encourage more and more caravans popping up makes me afraid for our future.
Because while today it may be anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000, more caravans means more and bigger numbers to the point where we are either completely overrun or our economy is so garbage that people won’t want to come anymore because it’d be no different from Central America. Frankly, it could easily become both.
At this point, I don’t see voting Republican this November as voting for a political party that I more agree and identify with. I see it as the safeguarding of our country both now and in the future. The Democrats have proven they have no desire to protect America, particularly as it is now. They wish to transform it no matter what, even if that means being overrun by illegals.
I’m not gonna be voting Republican just to punish the Democrats for their recent behavior. I’m doing it because they seem to be the only ones that actually give a damn about protecting this country.
This is no longer about certain policies working or not. It’s about the survival of our country as we know it. It’s about defending our country from foreign invaders.
Everyone says this is the most important election of our lifetimes, or at least one of them. They’re certainly not wrong, because this means we either protect our nation from future invasions and the evils of the Left, or we surrender to future invasions and the evils of the Left.

Author: Freddie Marinelli.
Back in August, I wrote an article that detailed the fact that only 25% of Democrats would support abolishing ICE after the illegal immigration debate heated up once again and somehow was hurting Trump to a degree.
While I do not necessarily have any news surrounding Democrats’ support of abolishing ICE, I do bring some news surrounding Latino voters’ views on ICE. And they don’t look good for Democrats.
A recently released poll by NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo found that, of 300 interviewees who were registered Latino voters, 36% would be less likely to vote for a candidate who supports abolishing ICE compared to 33% who would be more likely to vote for such a candidate.
26% said there was “no difference” either way and 5% said they were “not sure”.
Now, the poll doesn’t just focus on this one item. The poll is actually quite extensive, for example:
But perhaps most interestingly, though not necessarily shocking:
So we really should take everything in this poll with a grain of salt. This is a relatively small sample size, with only 300 registered Latino voters being surveyed.
But there are a number of things to take away from all this. Primarily, while the vast majority of Latino voters understand socialism and despise it, they do not recognize it in Democrats… somehow. Despite the fact that they do not like socialism at all, they still seemingly hold a negative view towards Trump and the GOP and would prefer the Democrats to win in November.
So what this poll tells me is that there is a severe lack of knowledge out there for Latinos. Now, don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying Latinos are stupid. Ignorance and idiocy are two different things. People can cease being ignorant simply through learning and acquiring knowledge. However, people can’t cease being stupid even with knowledge.
It’s clear to me that these Latino voters understand that Capitalism is good and Socialism is evil. They are not stupid. However, they are ignorant if they still prefer Democrats over Trump and the GOP. They do not recognize that the Democrats would only bring about the same kind of Socialism that they despise and some might even had fled from.
Regardless, that is a topic for another time. Right now, I want to focus on the fact that even within the same poll that has Latinos adamantly rejecting Trump and the GOP, Latinos also report being less likely to vote for someone who would support abolishing ICE.
It’s this sort of inconsistency that leads me to take everything this poll says with a grain of salt, even the things that are positive in my eyes. Latinos prefer Obama over Trump, the Dems over the GOP, all the while supporting Capitalism over Socialism and keeping ICE over abolishing it?
Taking aside the fact that this is a poll from an MSM source, this poll does not seem very consistent and might not be entirely credible.
However, the fact that the poll shows Latinos favoring ICE and being less likely to vote for a candidate that would support abolishing it speaks volumes, regardless of credibility.
I can understand if the poll wanted to skew certain things to make Trump and the GOP look bad and like they are about to get kicked out of Washington. I don’t know how many of the registered Latino voters are Democrats compared to Republicans. But I would be naïve to assume there is no overlap of Democrat voters in an MSM poll. However, I won’t speculate further.
All I’m saying is that it is remarkable that, despite many of the other things the poll shows, the voters would prefer ICE stay than be abolished. That goes against many other things the poll indicates and the Democrats claim. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ran, among other things, on the promise of abolishing ICE. Upon her upset victory over Joe Crowley, other Democrats picked up on some of the things she was saying and moved farther Left, also calling on ICE to be abolished.
Now, as I said at the beginning of the article, support for abolishing ICE has dropped off massively since Ocasio-Cortez’s victory even within Democrats. So perhaps I should not be so surprised that Latinos tend to have a more favorable view of the agency. But that’s not what has me intrigued. Frankly, it’s not that surprising.
For the most part, registered Latino voters are legal immigrants (though I don’t know if there were any illegals who were considered “registered voters” in the poll or actually are “registered voters” as illegal as that is, but I won’t speculate further on that issue… for now). Legal immigrants tend to not have positive views on illegal immigrants.
You see, legal immigrants go through the process the right way. They (we, since I am a legal immigrant and now proud U.S. citizen) pay what needs to be paid, wait the amount of time that needs to be waited, sign and complete all the forms that need to be signed and completed, and overall go through the extensive process of attaining legal status to immigrate and become a legal U.S. resident.
Illegals basically crap all over that.
So, when legal immigrants such as myself see what illegals are doing and the preference they receive from the Democrats, we tend to not like that. Now, I do realize the poll shows Latinos prefer Democrats over the GOP, but as I insinuated, that’s relatively questionable right now.
When we see a government agency properly enforcing the immigration laws we ourselves were subjected to, we tend to like that. No one should be able to come here through illegal means and those that do should immediately be considered criminals. And don’t tell me that’s harsh. If you break the law, you’re a criminal. If you break immigration law, you’re a criminal. Simple as that.
This is a view that, from what logic and seemingly data from an MSM poll, most legal immigrants share. So what has me surprised is not that registered Latino voters seemingly marginally support ICE. What has me surprised is that the MSM poll would show that.
Either way, I would imagine the MSM would focus more on the numbers that help reflect their narrative that a blue wave is incoming and inevitable than to focus on the fact that Latinos would be less likely to support a candidate that wants ICE abolished or the fact that Latinos tend to despise Socialism and prefer Capitalism.
But regardless of what the fake news media has to say, they have given me no reason to believe what they say on multiple occasions.

As I have mentioned in the past few articles from last week, one of the biggest stories of the past week was the finding of Mollie Tibbetts’ body and subsequent arrest of illegal immigrant Christian Bahena Rivera for her murder.
I have also mentioned that I was surprised the media was even talking about it, given it does not look good for their pro-open-borders stance. It still doesn’t, but the MSM is not always the brightest bulb in the shed. They have talked about her to some extent, of course, focusing more on Manafort and Cohen (and thus, Trump), but they have mentioned her. However, and this is what makes me think they’re not the smartest people out there, what they have said is either insensitive or moronic.
For example, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said on CNN that Mollie’s death is sad for her family, but that “we need an immigration system that… focuses on what the real problems are. Last month, I went down to the border and I saw where children had been taken away from their mothers…”
In other words, what happened to Mollie Tibbets isn’t the real problem. Illegal immigrant children being briefly separated from their parents is the real problem.
Christina Greer on MSNBC dismissed Mollie’s death as some “girl in Iowa” that “Fox News is talking about.”
And later in the week, Salon writer Amanda Marcotte tried to steer the conversation away from an illegal immigrant killing a girl to a man, irrespective of his immigrant status, killing a girl. What I mean is that she wanted to blame men in general over Mollie’s death, not the illegal immigrant or our broken immigration system that allows these animals into the country.
And before you attack me for saying the word “animal” to describe the illegal murderer, know that 1) I couldn’t care less what the Left thinks of me and 2) I’m specifically referring to animals like him who attack, harass, violate, rape and/or kill innocent American girls.
But considering all of these things, one thing is quite clear: the Left only politicizes tragedies that benefit them and only them.
After the Parkland school shooting, the Left was, and don’t mind my pun here, basically up in arms about the shooting and calling for stricter gun control laws.
Their theory is that, if gun control can save one kid from dying from a gun incident, then it’d be worth it.
However, when it comes to a tragedy like this one, where a young girl in her 20’s disappears and is found dead, murdered at the hands of an illegal immigrant, the Left couldn’t care less.
Clearly, Elizabeth Warren couldn’t care less. If she cares more about the welfare and wellbeing of people who should not be here over the DEATH of an American girl who had her whole life ahead of her, that tells you how heartless Warren is.
Clearly, Christina Greer couldn’t care less. If she dismisses this tragedy as nothing more than some girl in a fly-over state being discussed on a rival network, that tells you how heartless Greer is.
And clearly, Amanda Marcotte couldn’t care less. If she wants to steer away from the conversation of the fact that illegals are more and more often killing and destroying Americans and their families, even saying that the animal is not an illegal immigrant because his attorney says he isn’t an illegal immigrant, despite the fact that both ICE and USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) both made it clear that he is an illegal, and trying to blame men in general for her death, then that tells you how heartless Marcotte is.
If you’re going by the theory that if gun control can save the life of a single kid, then we can theorize that if a wall at the southern border can keep a single American life from being taken at the hands of an illegal, then it’d be worth it.
The difference between gun control and a wall is that a wall would actually work, while gun control only endangers people, if Chicago’s horrific statistics for gun crimes and murder from the weekend prior to this last one is any indication.
I mean, over 60 people being killed in a single weekend in gun control-infested Chicago? You can’t tell me gun control works. And you can’t tell me it’s because they’re buying guns outside of Chicago. If that’s the case, then why aren’t the neighboring cities overrun with the statistics Chicago is seeing?
Regardless, I digress. What I’m trying to say here is that the Left never wastes a good tragedy, but they either ignore or straight up downplay a tragedy that doesn’t do them much good.
Do you remember the story about a compound in New Mexico training kids to be school shooters? Why wasn’t that all over the news? Because the people running the compound are Muslim extremists. If it had been run by NRA members (which would never happen anyway), the media would go into a meltdown. But because it was run by Muslims, crickets.
It’s roughly the same story for Mollie Tibbetts. She was killed by an illegal immigrant, someone who should never have even set foot in this country, and the Left couldn’t care less because they can’t capitalize on it.
They only politicize tragedies that will be beneficial to them. Now, I’m not saying the Right isn’t politicizing this tragedy as well. But the difference between this tragedy and school shootings or other tragedies that benefit the Left is that our proposals and ideas, such as building the wall and securing our borders, won’t actually serve to put more people in danger.
The difference between gun control and a secured border is that a secured border isn’t meant to take away people’s Constitutional rights (and don’t you dare tell me illegals have such rights. They don’t). Gun control is meant to take away people’s guns, eradicate or nullify the 2nd Amendment and give the government no obstacles in its desire to grow and run people’s lives.
On the other hand, a wall at the border is only a detriment to those who wish to break the law by coming here the wrong way. Those who wish to immigrate here the right way will not be threatened by a big, beautiful wall.
As it turns out, only those who intend to break the law tend to fear the law. People like myself, a legal immigrant (now proud American citizen) have no reason to fear. Why? Because it’s not about the color of our skin. It’s about rule of law.
I have no problem with Cristhian Bahena Rivera’s nationality. I do have a problem with the fact that he murdered an innocent American girl in cold-blood when he shouldn’t have even been in this country.
I also have a problem with the fact that no one on the Left thinks this is a big deal whatsoever. It is, because this is not the first time an illegal has killed an American citizen and it won’t be the last.
Granted, even with a border wall and tougher border security, there will likely be cases of illegals killing people (largely because of unconstitutional Democrat messes like DACA), but the numbers, in theory, should go down. It should make things safer for people, particularly in the long-run.
And even though it’s a solution that would even help Democrats avoid situations like these, where they have to somewhat try to feign any sort of sympathy, they still won’t want it because it means less illegals voting Democrat. It means less illegals invading this country and trying to purge it from its foundation.
If a young girl with her whole future ahead of her is killed by one of these animals, that’s ok, as long as Democrats benefit at the ballot.
Why in the world would anyone want to vote Democrat when they so openly have not a care in the world about the very people that they should represent? When they so openly prioritize illegals who shouldn’t be here over American citizens and even legal residents who do have the right to be here?
Then again, answers to these questions require logic, something Democrats, the media and young socialist millennials seldom employ.

Last week, running on the fumes of the massive illegal immigration debate centered around children separated from their “parents”, three Democrats in the House of Representatives introduced a bill calling on the abolishment of ICE. The three Democrats were Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI), Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY).
However, House Republicans called their bluff and agreed to bring the measure up to the House floor so the Democrats could be on record supporting the abolishment of ICE. And so, the three Democrat representatives said they would vote “no” on the measure if it is brought up to the House floor.
For their part, they’re also trying to salvage the little dignity they have left, saying: “We know Speaker Ryan is not serious about passing our ‘Establishing a Humane Immigration Enforcement System Act,’ so members of Congress, advocacy groups, and impacted communities will not engage in this political stunt.”
Yeah, it’s not that he’s not serious about such a bill. Whether he is or isn’t is beside the point. The point is that these Democrats wanted to have some good p.r. by seemingly wanting to back the abolishment of ICE but their bluff was called. It’s them who were not serious about the bill, they just wanted some good rep.
Of course, this is not entirely surprising. According to polls, only 25% of Americans think ICE should be abolished (which is still too high, if you ask me). If they were to seriously go for such a measure, while it wouldn’t pass anyway since even some Democrats are against the idea, Republican candidates could use those votes in their campaigns to highlight the damage the Democrats could cause were they to win any seats in Congress.
Now, here’s the thing: we know this is the direction the Democrat Party is headed. Everyone from Keith Ellison to former PP CEO Cecile Richards is insisting that the future of the Democrat Party lies with people like Ocasio-Cortez, the socialist who defeated Democrat incumbent Joseph Crowley. If open socialism is the Democrat Party’s future, the Democrat Party has no future.
Regardless, they believe this is the direction their base wants to go. In this direction lies the destruction of the very fabric of society, as I have said in the past. Abolishing ICE is what socialists like Ocasio-Cortez want and will eventually try to go for, regardless of what the polls say. The only reason these three Democrats even brought up such a bill is because of Ocasio-Cortez’s victory over Crowley. It’s one of the things she’s been looking to do in Congress.
But due to this very act of cowardice on the part of the three Democrats, the Party must face the truth: this kind of rhetoric isn’t going to get them far. As it stands, the Democrat Party is too afraid to actually pull the trigger on supporting the abolishment of ICE. The problem is they’ve been in this kind of situation in the past.
Democrats used to be against gay marriage until they believed people wanted it. Democrats used to be against illegal immigration until they realized illegals mean free votes. As it stands, the Democrat Party is split on the abolishment of ICE, but they will eventually be unified again, likely against ICE and the country.
The only problem for them is that, with the demands the socialists in the Democrat Party are making now, just about any fool can torch them in an election. Let’s review a list I shared with you some articles ago about the demands these socialists are making. These socialists want to abolish ICE, abolish prisons, abolish profits, guaranteed income for everyone, no borders, no deportation of illegals, supposedly free healthcare, supposedly free education, and the complete and utter destruction of the 2nd Amendment, guaranteeing only the government has guns.
In that previous article, I made the case for why these are all terrible ideas (not that it’s not obvious to sane people) and any candidate can use those arguments to destroy these points. Like I said in that article, abolishing ICE means more crime, more drugs, more guns pouring into the country that will land in the hands of criminals and, least of all, more illegal immigrants coming into the country.
The only people who would deny these facts are those who should be considered insane. Which is why I say the Democrat Party has no future if people like Ocasio-Cortez are the future.
Now, don’t get me wrong. The Democrats have wanted a lot of the things they’ve recently been campaigning on for ages. The difference is that they used to lie about what they wanted (don’t misunderstand, they still do in some cases). In the past, in order to get what they wanted, they had to lie about what they wanted.
If Obama had been entirely honest about Obamacare, how likely would it have been to pass? Containing death panels, mandating people to get it or pay a fee and knowing it would increase premiums twice-fold, no one in their right mind would be okay with having Obamacare if they knew about these things.
If Obama had been entirely honest about the Iran Nuke Deal, how likely would it have been viewed as a good thing by the American people and the media? Sending billions upon billions of dollars to an enemy who constantly calls for our deaths in order to help them build the most dangerous weapons known to man? No one in their right mind would say “sign me up!”
But now, with certain things, the Democrats are abandoning any semblance of subtlety. They are, for once, honest with their words. They are looking to do what they say they want to do. Why? Because the emergence of Trump, as well as his sustained popularity, have driven the Left insane. They see Trump as a radical and think their best chance is to fight fire with fire.
They see Trump as far-right, so they believe they must go far-left. The problem is that it’s messing with the formula in a dangerous way. They are exposing themselves as socialists. And while half the Millennial generation may be with them (God knows why), most of America is still sour on the idea of turning into a socialist/communist nation.
We need only see Venezuela, North Korea, China, the Soviet Union, and Europe to see how terrible socialism is. Socialism has amounted to the deaths of hundreds of millions of people and counting. It’s almost too easy to destroy any socialist argument.
Now, I understand that many people vote with their hearts and not their brains. Looking at today’s political climate of Leftist whack-jobs attacking Trump supporters, those people are not very likely to listen to reason when it comes to socialism. But the thing about living life with such unreasonableness is that it can’t last forever.
At one point or another, people are faced with reality and will accept the truth. I’ve used this example before, but I think it’s a good one, so I will restate it.
Picture yourself driving down the road, coming up to an intersection. You see that you have a red light and there’s a big truck about to cross the intersection. Living unreasonably, you theorize that the truck is not actually there, despite all evidence against your theory, and drive through the intersection.
That’s living without reason. But eventually, reason always returns to you, and it can return the easy way or the hard way.
Translating this into political terms, people will realize the horrors of socialism the easy way or the hard way.
The good news is we don’t need to risk learning this the hard way. We have real-world examples that speak against socialism, including simple logic. The other good news is that the people who want full-on communism and socialism and the things written in the aforementioned list are in the minority.
We saw, during the 2016 presidential election, many former Democrat voters voting for Trump because they were disillusioned with the job Obama did and thought Hillary would be more of the same. Recently, we’ve been seeing a quiet movement (which has only been quiet because the MSM wouldn’t dare cover it, as it goes against their narrative) called the “Walk Away” movement in which people expressed their disappointment with the Democrat Party going farther and farther to the Left that they can’t even recognize the Party anymore.
The vast majority of America does not want socialism. It’s for these very reasons that I say the Democrat Party has no future if Ocasio-Cortez is their future. And some Democrats are smart enough to know that.
For the many, MANY dumb things Schumer and Pelosi say, they are actually pretty smart. They have to be in order to survive calls of stepping down. For as Leftist as they are, they still remain somewhat sane and reasonable – particularly compared with Warren, Sanders (although he’s also smart enough, seemingly, to be against abolishing ICE) and the crazy lady I’ve been talking about throughout this article. They represent a Democrat Party that is still not completely screwed. And I think they know that in order to return to power, they need to continue lying about what they want.
So there will be a sort of civil war in the Democrat Party in the near future. That much is for sure.
But returning to the three Democrats “looking” to abolish ICE, it’s quite clear that this was nothing but a political stunt. They want their voters to think they want to go through with abolishing ICE but never had any actual intentions on voting on the measure. Their bluff was expertly called and they were left obliterated.
However, as quiet as this measure was, if things go the way I think they will, there will be another similar measure that will be as loud as any bill could be. Here’s hoping and praying these socialists are soundly defeated and sent home with their tail between their legs.

While I tend not to look at too many polls to gauge a candidate’s favorability or people’s views on a certain issue, one poll conducted by YouGov, a market research and data analytics firm, caught my eye with some of the results on the issue of illegal immigration.
The poll was conducted just a few days ago and it polled 1,500 U.S. adults. The poll found that only 19% of those polled favored “releasing the families and having them report back for an immigration hearing at a later date.”
In other words, only 19% of those polled favored the Obama-era policy of “catch and release”.
According to the Daily Wire: “Even among Democrats, only 30% liked the idea, while 33% of Hillary Clinton voters and 36% of self-described ‘liberals’ favored it. Among Independents, just 17% were in favor of catch and release, as were just 16% of moderates. Among Republicans, only 7% backed it, as did only 7% of conservatives and 4% of Trump supporters.”
This tells me something in particular: people didn’t actually like what Obama’s policies were, they just liked them because they were Obama’s. Similarly, I’ve noticed on occasion that when people are asked what they think of a policy enacted by Trump, but were not told it was Trump’s, people tended to favor said policy (of course, depending on what the policy was).
“Catch and Release” is entirely synonymous with Obama and is revered by the fake news media as the policy we should be using (that is until they start heavily demanding open borders, as they might in the coming days and weeks following the charade of “keeping families together”). But when you get down to it, most people, even Democrats, liberals and Clinton voters, do not like the idea of “catch and release”.
The poll provided four particular policies regarding illegal immigration: “catch and release”, “holding families together in detention centers until an immigration hearing at a later date” (which seems to be the one the Trump administration is leaning towards), “arresting the adults, sending them to jail to await a criminal trial and sending any minor children to shelters run by the Department of Health” (the administration’s previous approach), and “arresting both the adults and minor children, sending the adults to jail and the minor children to juvenile detention centers to await a criminal trial”.
I already mentioned “catch and release” and the results of that poll, but the other ones are quite interesting as well.
In regards to “holding families together in detention centers until an immigration hearing at a later date”, this method proved to be the most popular among polltakers, with a total of 44% backing the idea, 49% of Democrats, 39% of Independents, 47% of Republicans, as well as 53% of Clinton voters, 44% of Trump voters, 48% of liberals, 51% of moderates and 43% of conservatives.
Personally, I agree with this idea. The separation of families is a very bad thing, which is why I bash Obama, Bush and especially Clinton over this since this began in 1997 after the Flores case, as I mentioned in my previous article.
Of course, I can’t say I’m surprised at the amount of Democrat voters who support this idea. It’s a little more humane (though the media will certainly try to make it seem just as inhumane as separating families so they can push for open borders and amnesty) and Democrat voters tend to be fooled into thinking Democrats care about anyone other than themselves. But this idea overall seems better than the previous approach. Not to mention that Trump’s EO exposes the Left as frauds since they will say it’s not enough and will push for no prosecution and detainment at all, which exposes this as not being about the kids, but about open borders.
Stupidly enough, the Left believes they can win on the key issue that got Trump elected in the first place and it’s the reason I believe Trump’s EO is the best move to expose the fraudulent Left on this issue.
Regarding Trump’s previous approach of “arresting the adults, sending them to jail to await a criminal trial and sending any minor children to shelters run by the Department of Health”, that proved to be less popular than even “catch and release”. Of the people polled, only 12% supported the idea, with 5% of Democrats supporting it, 12% of Independents, 22% of Republicans, 3% of Clinton voters, 27% of Trump voters, 3% of liberals, 11% of moderates and 25% of conservatives.
Again, not very surprised at these results. It’s not a very popular policy, at least to me, because it was used and created by Democrats. Of course, the media and Democrats try to make it seem as though it’s strictly Trump policy, and many have bought into that b.s. In a perfect world, people would recognize that this policy was created and used by the Left (yes, I’m counting Bush as part of the Left) and bash those who created it and the ones who employed it but had the chance to end it.
Like I said, Obama had the best chance to do this in 2009 when the Democrats owned Congress and the White House. And don’t tell me that that is only 2 years of majority. That is not a good enough excuse. Trump has been in power for less than 2 years and look at what he’s accomplished so far. And that is with a Republican Party that has been UNCOOPERATIVE for much of it and a Democrat Party that has been OBSTRUCTING everything they possibly could. Obama, with total control of Congress, could’ve done far more damage than he actually did. We must thank the good Lord that he wasn’t as effective as Trump is.
Let’s finally move on to the final policy on the poll: “arresting both the adults and minor children, sending the adults to jail and the minor children to juvenile detention centers to await a criminal trial”. Unsurprisingly, only 8% supported this idea, with 2% of Democrats, 7% of Independents, 16% of Republicans, 2% of Clinton voters, 15% of Trump voters, 2% of liberals, 6% of moderates, and 15% of conservatives.
Personally, I also disagree with that idea. It simply seems like too much, particularly for minors. While there very well could be some minors who are close to 18 years old, most are younger children who are dragged to these places by their parents (for some reason) so sending them to juvie over something they really had no control over is a little harsh.
Now, I can also understand the reasoning behind some conservatives on issues like these. I agree with the idea that we should take care of our own children first, our own homeless people first, our own citizens first. That is part of the reason I voted for Trump, to put America, and thus, Americans, first. Any nation that prioritizes the citizens of another country over their own citizens is a nation that is doomed to be reshaped at best and utterly destroyed at worst.
But it makes sense that this last method is so unpopular.
Now, these were not the only things tracked by the poll. Among many other things such as Trump’s handling of North Korea, people’s view on certain countries as allies or enemies and their opinions on the FBI, the poll asked “Do you think the policy of separating parents arrested for crossing the border into the United States without proper documentation from their minor children will or will not discourage immigrants from crossing the border illegally?”
In other words, is family separation a deterrent of illegal border crossing? A total of 34% said that it is, with 38% saying no and 28% being unsure. Personally, I don’t think it’s a deterrent whatsoever. Think of it this way: families are attempting to illegally cross the border in at least 80 degree heat on a good day, risking capture and deportation, risking separating themselves in the trip alone, risking heatstroke and dehydration (and other things that threaten their lives). If they are willing to go through that, I can’t see how being separated by the government can seem like much of a deterrent.
The only effective deterrent of illegal immigration is a border wall and more security. We need to make it almost entirely impossible for anyone to cross the border illegally. People might be able to climb a fence, but unless they are Spider-Man, they can’t climb a 20 to 30 ft. wall.
Now, looking at these results overall, it tells me that people still tend to side with Trump on immigration issues. If even Hillary voters and registered Democrats heavily disapprove of “catch and release”, what honest-to-God hope do they have to winning in the midterms? Especially on the biggest issue that got Trump elected? Pushing for amnesty and open borders didn’t work in 2016, so what makes them think it will work now? The way they see Trump isn’t the way the majority of the country sees Trump.

Author: Freddie Marinelli.
Yesterday, I shared with you a nice story about Chris Pratt giving a good, wholesome, pro-God acceptance speech at the MTV Movie awards. Unfortunately, the Left is loud enough in their asinine outrage that they warrant some form of attention.
Amidst the controversy of children being separated from their “families” (unsure how many of them are simply using children to enter the country), actor Peter Fonda, Jane Fonda’s younger but equally as disturbed brother, sent out a series of disgusting tweets attacking DHS secretary Kristjen Nielsen and Donald Trump’s youngest son, Barron.
Why do they continually attack an 11-year-old? Because they’re bullies, that’s why.
The tweets he sent out are vile, so I will censor the disgusting excuse for a human being’s language.
Let’s begin with his attack on Barron, which has since been deleted (it’s all in caps, because he is insane and loud, but it’s annoying so I will write it out like a normal human being who hasn’t lost all his marbles): “We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles and see if mother will stand up against the giant a**hole she is married to. 90 million people in the streets on the same weekend in the country. F***.”
Boy, can I have a lot of fun with this tweet alone, but I don’t want to make this too long. First, this is hundreds of times worse than what Border Patrol is doing. They aren’t ripping kids from their “parents’” arms. The parents willingly leave them when seeking asylum, otherwise they get deported. Second, no one is putting these kids with Polanski- I mean pedophiles. They are taken by government workers. Third, you can’t even get 90 million people to vote for the disaster candidate that was Hillary, how can you get 90 million people to march on the streets? That would take more than the entire population of the three biggest states: California, Texas and Florida.
Not everyone in California is a mind-numbed Leftist. Even less people are in Texas and Florida. Getting 90 million people to march on something would be taking nearly a third of the entire country’s population. You’re not gonna get that.
Regardless, let’s continue with the insane actor’s tweets.
This one is directed at Nielsen: “Kristjen Nielsen is a lying gash that should be put in a cage and poked at by passerby. The gash should be pilloried in Lafayette Square naked and whipped by passerby while being filmed for posterity.”
A couple of things regarding this. First, eww. Second, Democrats don’t get to whip people anymore. They lost that right when they lost the Civil War. Third, this, among the other vile things, goes to show how twisted and demented this p.o.c. is. Lastly, this jerk made me look up the term “gash” in a vulgar sense. I won’t share it with you because I do not wish to taint your minds to the levels of this demented dude.
This next tweet attacks ICE agents and their families (again, in all caps to show how insane he is): “We should hack this system, get the addresses of the ICE agents, CBP agents and surround their homes in protest. We should find out what schools their children go to and surround the schools in protest. These agents are doing this cuz they want to do it. They like doing this. F***.”
Does he have Tourette’s or something? Why does he have to end these tweets with that profanity? He already shows his literally insane outrage, why end it with that word? Also, again, this is far worse than what ICE and Border Patrol are doing. This is stalking and harassment. And that’s best case scenario.
Why does the Left feel as though violence is the only solution? Why do they feel they have to shout at people to “win” their arguments? Oh, right, because they can’t fight in the realm of ideas and their collective IQ barely reaches the double digit mark. And no, I’m not talking about ALL Left-leaning people here. I don’t refer to liberals as stupid. I refer to these Leftists with some semblance of power as stupid.
Now, I won’t share all of his vile, disgusting tweets because I think this is enough to show how insane these people are. I’m actually running out of adjectives to describe these people and their behavior. It’s vile, disgusting, volatile, asinine, insane, ridiculous… you get the idea.
But do you want to know what makes this entire hysteria laughable? It’s so obvious it’s just to score political points that it hurts.
First, this policy is not Trump’s. He didn’t enact anything, as I’ve honestly seen someone on Twitter complain about. This isn’t Trump’s doing. This is the result of a 1997 federal government agreement on the Flores v. Sessions case and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that accompanied children could not be held in custody under the terms of the settlement. This follows the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996. Who was the POTUS who signed this bill into law? Bill Clinton.
Second, Chuck Schumer and the Democrats rejected a bill proposed by the GOP to fix this issue. The reason? To “keep the focus on Trump”, according to Chuck Schumer in an interview with The Hill. When presented with a piece of legislation that would effectively end their cries and would mean a longer-term solution than an Executive Order (which Trump has signed), they reject it in order to continue this cockamamie fight.
The truth is that Democrats couldn’t care less about children. They are the ones who want to continue funding Planned Parenthood, the world’s biggest child-killing organization. They constantly separate children from their families, and that’s honestly the nicest thing that horrible organization does. Yet, we are to believe these evil people care about these children?
And let’s not forget, these are the “children” of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS! Not the children of people who want to enter the country legally, but the children of people who want to enter the country so bad they would use children as anchors to seek asylum. It’s these parents that are WILLINGLY separating themselves from their children.
As an immigrant who came to this country as a child, I can assure you that there’s no way in Hell my mother would agree to being separated from me for more than 20 days just so she could enter the country. There’s no way in Hell any good parent would do that to their children. You’ve seen the pictures of Obama’s separation of children from their parents. You’ve seen them cry. What good parent would do that to their child? To enter the country? Sure, wherever they are coming from is most likely a “s**thole” country, but no good parent would willingly separate themselves from their children just for a shot at a better life. They would stay with their children and figure out another way.
Wanna know why this is such a big deal? A couple of reasons. More and more people are using this method of entering the country illegally. Why? Because Trump has taken away many other options for these people. Using a child to seek “asylum” is just a new, more popular way to have a decent shot at entering the country. Not to mention the hundreds of cases in which people have fraudulently used children to enter the country, according to the Washington Examiner. In fact, “301 children who arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border with an accompanying adult from October 2017 to April 2018 were found to have no relation to the adult who posed as their parent or guardian.”
So people are clearly using children as a scam to enter the country.
Another reason this is such a big deal is because the Left has absolutely no other arrows in their quiver. With the economy roaring, ISIS basically defeated and NK agreeing to denuclearize, among many other great things, the Democrats have had nothing to sell people on. This is purely an effort to revive the long-since-dead “Blue Wave”. Not to mention this is meant to take us to “Let’s not separate families and just open the borders”.
Elections and open borders are all the Democrats care about here. Not the children, nor their families. If they cared at all about the children, they wouldn’t have signed this into law back in 1996. They wouldn’t have enforced this law while Obama was still President. They wouldn’t have waited until they exhausted all other options to attack Trump for.
They would’ve taken care of this when they had ultimate power back in 2009, or even at any point during Obama’s presidency, given that the GOP wants to put an end to this policy as well.
The Democrats don’t want a fix to this, they want something to fight over. They can’t win anywhere else. They can’t win with Trump’s economy kicking butt. They can’t win with unemployment numbers hitting record-lows. They can’t win with Trump making the world a little bit safer. Ironically, they will try to win with arguably the biggest issue Trump won: immigration.
But with Trump’s decision to sign an EO and working with the GOP to make this a more long-term thing, the Democrats won’t have much to fight over by the time November rolls around. The majority of the country still wants Trump’s agenda dictating immigration reform.
Now, I fully expect Paul Ryan to use the momentum of this farce of a fight to push his amnesty bill, thus hurting Republicans in November, but we’ll see what happens. Trump won’t sign an amnesty bill, that’s for sure.
Returning to Peter Fonda, I don’t think I need to say anything more. His disgusting psyche speaks for itself.

While the Left constantly accuses Trump and his administration of separating children from their families and mistreating illegal immigrants, they fail to recognize that Obama just so happened to not be such a friend to illegals either.
Over Memorial Day weekend, AZCentral.com shared an article about illegal immigrant children being detained by ICE, with a picture (above) showing a couple of kids sleeping on the floor in a cage. Horrifying images for certain, but the Left made the mistake of attributing the pictures to Trump’s ICE, not Obama’s.
Jon Favreau, Obama’s speechwriter, tweeted about it, eventually deleting the tweet upon learning that his old buddy was to blame for the pictures.
Regardless, he still felt compelled to try to spin it in order to blame Trump, saying: “These awful pictures are from 2014, when the government’s challenge was reconnecting unaccompanied minors who showed up at the border with family or a safe sponsor. Today, in 2018, the government is CREATING unaccompanied minors by tearing them away from family at the border.”
Sure, Obama was trying to reunite families, so his intentions definitely excuse such mistreatment of these children. That definitely is a good point.
Seriously, these guys could excuse Obama for a second Holocaust if they felt his intentions were noble.
But let’s move on to other embarrassed liberals. Antonio Villaraigosa, former L.A. mayor and California gubernatorial candidate, tweeted: “Speechless. This is not who we are as a nation.”
The irony lies in that these are some of the words said by Obama regarding many different things. “This is not who we are.”
Of course, he later had to delete the tweet, but people had already noticed, including noted conservative activist Stephen Miller, who replied to Villaraigosa: “Hello, Antonio. Why did you delete this tweet? Is it because this was 2014 and you are no longer outraged because who this all happened under? Are you no longer speechless? Help explain, thanks.”
Villaraigosa made the mistake of actually replying to Miller: “Taking children from their parents whether it’s under a Democrat president or a Republican one doesn’t make it any more right. The key issue is not when it started, but when will it end. It’s wrong. It’s wrong for Democrats. It’s wrong for Republicans. It’s wrong for Americans.”
I doubt he actually believes in what he is saying. His tweet was not necessarily political or even giving blame to anyone. His tweet was relatively objective, so why delete it? It still makes sense under that line of thinking. People should still be speechless by such an inhumane act. So why delete the tweet? Furthermore, if it’s as outrageous as he believes it is, why not bash Obama over it? Or at least blame ICE leadership from 2014?
That’s why I find difficulty believing what he says. He thinks it’s outrageous if he believes Trump is the cause of it, but doesn’t think it’s outrageous if it was Obama’s administration who was in charge during that time.
CNN reporter Hadas Gold, who shared the tweet initially, wound up deleting it as well and sent out this ridiculous explanation: “Deleted previous tweet because gave impression of recent photos (they’re from 2014)”
Here was her original tweet: “First Photos of separated migrant children at holding facility.”
That’s not giving the impression, that’s explicitly saying it’s recent.
Alas, we move on to the next embarrassed liberal. New York Times Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Jake Silverstein also weighed in, calling the photos “disturbing”, before also deleting the tweet.
He then offered this excuse: “Correction: this link, which was going around this morning, is from 2014. Still disturbing, of course, but only indirectly related to current situation. My bad (and a good reminder not to RT things while distracted w/ family on the weekend).”
What situation? As far as we know, this isn’t happening under Trump’s ICE. As the pictures are from 2014, we only know OBAMA was doing this, not Trump. I’m not saying these illegal immigrant families and children are living in luxury comparable to Trump Tower, but Trump might be treating them better than Obama. Considering these photos, the bar was set pretty low.
Perhaps my favorite embarrassed liberal’s response, however, came from Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour, who decided to leave her tweet up but still attack Trump like the crazy woman she is: “No amnesia here. Our immigration system is a disaster and was a disaster long before Trump came along. Now it will become increasingly worse under this White Supremacist Administration who have made their hatred for immigrants crystal clear.”
From what I can see, Obama hated ILLEGALS more than Trump does, so I don’t know what she’s talking about here.
But she certainly gives me a lot to work with here. First, it’s interesting to see her admit Trump didn’t “create the disaster” that is our immigration system (though one can argue that it is a disaster, but for different reasons than the Left would give you). While she does not specifically bash the Obama ICE leadership for this, she’s at least sober-minded enough to realize you can’t flat out blame everything on Trump (though it’s not come from lack of trying).
Second, I can always make the case that white supremacy has always been entrenched in the Democrat Party and continues to be the case to this day, if only through legislative measures and not in speech. But one does not need to go too far to see the effect of the Left’s disastrous policies on black communities.
Lastly, Trump doesn’t hate immigrants. He doesn’t even hate illegals. He’s not deporting them because he hates them. He’s deporting them because they are here illegally and should suffer the consequences of such actions. We are a nation living under rule of law. Someone breaks the law, they suffer accordingly for it. Everyone that is here when they don’t have permission or a right to be here must be kicked out. If they wish to return, they are more than welcome to do so through legal means.
The only people who enact or enforce laws based on hatred is the Left and Democrat Party.
Finally, we have BLM leader Shaun King, the whitest black man to have ever lived, giving his own two cents on the matter: “I saw this photo floating around and didn’t know if it was real. It is,” the radical leader said. “Children of immigrants are being held in cages, like dogs, at ICE detention centers, sleeping on the floor. It’s an abomination.”
Imagine the shock in his face when he discovered that his fellow fake-black-guy of a President was the one responsible for the pictures.
Now, AZCentral, the source for the article, had to issue a clarification, saying: “Photos of children at a migrant holding facility have gone viral on social media. The pictures are from 2014. They were originally posted with this azcentral article about unaccompanied migrant children who were transported to a facility in Arizona.”
I simply can’t keep in my laughter at the ignorance of these liberals. Now, to be completely fair, I can’t exactly expect them to do their own research. They’re Leftists, after all. Really, anyone could’ve been fooled without the appropriate research, but that’s not what I’m most focused on.
I don’t blame them for having been fooled. I don’t even blame them for tweeting their original tweets. I do, however, blame them for trying to pretend it’s not a big deal because it was Obama who was responsible. And I do blame them for still trying to attack Trump, despite the fact that the pictures depicted the way Obama’s ICE chose to treat these children.
It’s their hypocrisy that I have a problem with. They thought those pictures were horrifying and outrageous when they believed they were recent and under Trump’s administration. But upon learning Obama’s ICE was responsible for the pictures, they don’t think it’s as big a deal or anywhere near as outrageous. Despite them saying they do think it’s bad and outrageous, it’s clear that their anger and outrage left them when they discovered the truth.
It was a big deal only when they thought Trump was responsible, and that’s what I have a problem with.
Earlier, I mentioned that they would’ve excused Obama for a second Holocaust if they believed his intentions were noble. Similarly, if Hitler had been a Democrat President, they would’ve excused the first one.
That’s the kind of double-standard they set for themselves. Everything a Republican does is bad and everything a Democrat does is good. If a Democrat does something they would attack a Republican for, they either bury the story, ignore it entirely, or excuse it to the best of their ability. They were ok with sexual assault and harassment until they figured they could attack Trump on it.
Don’t misunderstand, they are still ok with it. Once Trump is done being President, or any sort of problem for the Left altogether, they will go back to excusing the Harvey Weinsteins of the world.
But morality is a different matter altogether. Here, I just want to focus on their hypocrisy, which is painfully obvious.
“You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”

On Wednesday, President Trump held a roundtable discussion in the White House on California’s sanctuary state policies.
During this discussion with Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims, Trump made sure to call out a specific group of very bad people.
Here’s just a part of the transcript from the discussion:
Sheriff Mims: “But now ICE is the only law enforcement agency that cannot use our databases to find the bad guys. They cannot come in and talk to people in our jail, unless they reach a certain threshold…”
President Trump: “It’s a disgrace. Okay? It’s a disgrace.”
Mims: “It’s a disgrace.”
Trump: “And we’re suing on that, and we’re working hard, and I think it will all come together, because people want it to come together. It’s so ridiculous. The concept that we’re even talking about is ridiculous…”
Mims: “Thank you. There could be an MS-13 member I know about – if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it.”
Trump: “We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in – and we’re stopping a lot of them – but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.”
Read that one more time and tell me what the context of the situation is. They are clearly talking about MS-13 gang members, right?
Well, according to every news media under the sun, he was referring to ALL immigrants as animals.
From the Huffington Post: “Trump once again referred to immigrants as subhuman, saying, ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.’”
From the Business Insider: “Trump says some unauthorized immigrants ‘aren’t people’ but ‘animals’ who will be rapidly kicked out of the US.”
From NowThis: “’These aren’t people. These are animals.’ – The President of the United States on undocumented immigrants.”
From the NYT: “Trump lashed out at undocumented immigrants during a White House meeting, calling those trying to breach the country’s borders ‘animals’”.
I could go on, but you get the idea.
They all want to make it seem as though Trump is attacking illegal immigrants. Or even simply immigrants, since the Left is ignorant enough to rope people like me in with illegals.
This is your typical case of the media taking something entirely out of context and spreading even more egregious fake news.
Of course, because of the fake news, people have taken to once again try to compare Trump to Hitler. But of course, the truth is glaringly obvious: THEY ARE FAR CLOSER TO HITLER THAN TRUMP COULD EVER BE!
That being said, that is a discussion for another time. For now, I simply wish to refer you to the despicable behavior the MSM has been showing as of late.
Today, they have been defending MS-13 gang members, saying they are not animals. MS-13 has a horrid reputation for gang rapes, kidnappings, dismemberment and homicides. The families of some of their victims even attended the State of the Union address, upon having been invited by President Trump.
Earlier in the week, they were defending Hamas terrorists seeking to breach Israel’s border and exterminate the Jews. Frankly, the media looked like Hitler’s personal news source during their reporting on the Gaza riots.
Before that, they were siding with and supporting Iran during Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the horrendous Obama-era Iran nuclear deal, even showing respect and support for the Ayatollah Khomeini reading “Fire and Fury”.
In the span of a couple of weeks, the media has shown far more treasonous behavior than they could possibly say Trump has.
But that is just who these people are. They are hateful of this country and wish to see it torn to shreds. They support terrorist nations gaining nuclear weapons while hoping more people die by taking away good people’s guns. They support terrorist organizations trying to wage war on Israel and the Jewish people while calling the Israeli forces the terrorists. They support evil gang members destroying people and their families while trying to equate them to other illegal immigrants and all immigrants as a whole.
This is despicable and outrageous behavior coming from these jackals. And then, they turn around and wonder why the Democrats’ lead in the midterms has all but disappeared and why Trump’s approval numbers are skyrocketing.
The American people see the evils that the media is spreading, but in the media’s stupidity, they choose to double down on it. They continue to spread lies and oppose one of the best presidents this country has ever had, while continuing to support entities in the world who literally call for the death of the United States and continuously make threats directed at Israel.
Is it really any wonder why I call these people evil? THEY CONTINUOUSLY SUPPORT WHAT IS EVIL!
Abortion? You bet they support that.
Islam? Check. And don’t even pretend it isn’t evil. Not all of them may be terrorists but not every German was a Nazi during the 40s and look how that turned out.
Gay marriage and transgenderism? More the latter than the former. Since gay marriage is now legal, the Left has all but left regular gay people behind in favor of supporting mentally-deranged people who believe gender is fluid.
Pre-marital sex? Have been for ages. And they wonder why people sexually abuse others. When sex is meant more to be fun than about the expression of marriage and their love and their wish to have a family, then problems such as these arise… as well as loonies who think an answer to this problem is asking their baby for consent before changing them.
The media has long ceased to be about journalism. It is now a source for propaganda. A source whose only purpose is further destroying all that is good and holy in the world. They have destroyed the definition of marriage, family, life, and even sanity.
Everything the Left touches is destroyed and perverted.
And that most certainly includes the words of a good person such as Trump. They twist and manipulate his words to mean what they never meant. One last time: no, Trump wasn’t talking about immigrants. He wasn’t talking about illegal immigrants as a whole either. He was talking about despicable trash that can hardly be considered human. He was talking about the illegal immigrant criminal gang MS-13 and the horrible things they do to people and their families.
And, as a side note, I absolutely hate the fact that the media continues to equate illegal immigrants to legal immigrants. I’m a legal immigrant (now, a proud U.S. citizen) who came here with my family at a relatively early age. We paid our dues, waited our time and obeyed every rule and law to gain access for permanent residence. I won’t go into all the details, but to summarize, we did everything the way you are supposed to.
Illegals come here and somehow get preferential treatment from the Democrats. I’m not asking for preferential treatment from anyone. I’m asking how is it that a political party prefers those who disobey the laws over the ones who do things right?
The answer, simply, is the topic of this article: they are evil. They do their absolute best to disincentivize people regarding everything. They want people to depend solely on the government because that means more power and more votes for them. Someone who can afford to go through the immigration process legally likely doesn’t need government assistance once they are here. They HATE people who don’t need the government. Thus, they HATE legal immigrants.
And all of this hatred, all of this evil, comes from the lack of Jesus Christ in their hearts. I’ll simply leave it at that, particularly since this was meant to simply be a small side note and it looks like I’m about to write a separate article entirely with how much time I’m spending on that particular subject.
To recap: MS-13 are animals, Hamas are monsters, Iran is terroristic, the media is propaganda and the Left as a whole is evil.

Look, I’ll be the first to tell you that I didn’t want any sort of amnesty for even a single illegal immigrant. But sadly, there are Republicans in Congress who refuse to help pass much of anything to do with Making America Great Again. I’ll give them credit for passing the tax cuts, but tax cuts are things Republicans tend to vote for anyway.
But the sad reality is that there are RINOs in Congress such as Lindsey Grahamnesty. So in order to fulfill some campaign promises such as building the Wall, ending the visa lottery program and ending the chain migration program, deals have to be made. And sometimes, that means giving up some things in order to get what you want.
Even though Trump’s amnesty plan will help 1.8 million illegals to a path to citizenship (which will undoubtedly go towards voting for Democrats), his plan will also help the country far more than you may think.
First, I want to clear some things up. This is not amnesty in the way Democrats would want it. Democrats would hope for immediate legalization of illegals and an immediate and quick path to citizenship. This plan doesn’t do that at all.
According to Breitbart: “The path to citizenship would require a 10-12 year period where recipients would be required to demonstrate good behavior, work and education requirements, and good moral character.”
In other words, the illegals helped in this amnesty plan won’t get to help the Democrat Party any time soon. Not to mention that this plan means that any illegal that doesn’t meet the requirements will then not be eligible to become a citizen thereafter. So no evil jerks like Kate Steinle’s killer or that monster who killed two cops and wishes he could’ve killed more would be able to become citizens under this plan.
Not to mention that this plan also helps keep the promise made to Chuck Schumer after he agreed to reopen the government. Schumer was promised that a vote on immigration must occur on the Senate floor by February 8th. This is likely the plan that will be put to vote by then. (Everyone and their grandmother expects the Democrats to reject this bill and there’s always a chance that some Republicans will vote against it).
But if the biggest purpose of having this plan is so that the Democrats won’t shut down the government again in February, then this plan helps.
This plan, according to Breitbart, also includes: “A $25 billion lump sum ‘trust fund’ for a border security ‘wall system’ for not only the Southern border but major security investments on the Northern border as well. It also includes sweeping limitations for chain migration – limiting family immigration sponsorships to only spouses and minor children – not for parents or extended family members… The proposal would also end the visa lottery program and reallocate them towards fulfilling the skilled-based visa backlog.”
So we can see why this plan is not the “betrayal” you might think it is. I wish it didn’t have to come to this, but RINOs in Congress such as Grahamnesty will constantly side with the Democrats on this issue. In a perfect world, all Republican members of Congress would get behind the MAGA agenda in full and not challenge things every step of the way. If there’s one thing they should learn from Democrats it’s how to be united with each other.
This plan is most certainly not something Democrats would want, even though they claim to fight for “DREAMers”. If anything, this plan will also expose Democrats in their efforts. By voting against it, they are essentially stabbing the “DREAMers” in the back by telling them that they have to continue struggling until they can get rid of Trump. Frankly, the Democrats should know that they’re not going to get a much better deal than this. They should know Trump isn’t going to give them amnesty without funding for the Wall, an end to the visa lottery program and an improvement (or utter abolishment) of the chain migration program.
This plan, though it doesn’t sound good on the outset, is actually a pretty good plan. I’m talking about more than just what the plan is itself. I’m also talking about the fact that this backs the Democrats into a corner. Either they stick to their promise to help the illegals even if this is not a great deal or they abandon the illegals and leave them in the dust for as long as Democrats aren’t in control.
It could be that Democrats are hoping they will be able to take Congress, but frankly, they’d need a super-majority in order to get what they want. They know, or at least should know, that Trump will veto any bad bill that the Democrats pass in Congress. The Democrats would have to gather enough votes to overrule his veto and I don’t see that happening.
First, I don’t see them even gaining any sort of majority, since, and I’ve said this in other articles, all Republicans would have to do is point to the booming economy and say that the Democrats didn’t vote for that. If done right, Republicans could win more seats. Maybe not 60, but certainly gain more of a lead on the Democrats.
Second, even if the Democrats end up retaking Congress, I don’t see them getting a super-majority. Even if some Republican candidates are idiots and don’t utilize the booming economy well (I know there’s more to it than that, but that’s at least one thing all Republican candidates should use), I don’t think enough will lose their elections to get the Democrats a super-majority. I’m also aware that there will be RINOs like Graham in Congress, but I don’t think there will be enough to help out the Democrats. Particularly so since Jeff Snowflake won’t seek reelection (which he would lose anyway) in 2018.
Considering everything, the Democrats should know that this will likely be the best deal they’re going to get from Donald Trump. If they vote against it, we conservatives can use it as ammunition, saying things like “See? The Democrats don’t care about the people, they only care about their votes. This bill would help nearly 2 million of these illegals but still, the Democrats voted against it.”
Even Rush Limbaugh has said, multiple times, that he’d support an amnesty bill for as many illegals as the Democrats wanted if it means that the illegals don’t get to vote for at least 15 years.
So, overall, this bill isn’t anywhere near as bad as you might believe. Is it perfect? No. In a perfect world, no such deal would have to be made, Republicans in Congress would’ve voted to fund the Wall months into Trump’s first year in office, voted to end chain migration immediately and ditto for the visa lottery program.
But this is not a perfect world. And in order to make deals, sometimes you have to make sacrifices. This plan helps the country more than it hurts it. It’s not what a lot of Trump supporters wanted, but it’s something we should be able to realize isn’t as bad as initially thought.
Not to mention that I’m pretty much ok with whatever the outcome is. If it passes, then we get funding for the Wall, an end to the visa lottery program and a chain migration program that isn’t b.s. If it doesn’t pass, then these illegals will remain illegal and the Democrats might even take a hit on their popularity (I say “might” because I don’t see a large likelihood of that happening. But I know that I’d bring it up as much as possible when talking about the subject).
Either way, I believe the country wins to a certain extent. Frankly, I’d prefer if this bill passes even at the cost of legalization and future citizenship of these “DREAMers” if it means the Wall will start getting built, chain migration is improved to something that makes sense and the visa lottery program is done away with.
Not to mention that funding the Wall will likely result in another drop in illegal crossings. I’ve seen multiple Breitbart articles talking about illegal border crossings getting higher beginning with talks of immigration. Compare that to articles from earlier in 2017 when Trump was freshly inaugurated and Breitbart wrote multiple articles talking about illegal crossing numbers getting lower out of fear for the Wall.
Well, eventually, that fear goes away if the Wall is no closer to being funded than it was last year. Upon the mere passing of this bill, crossings are likely to decrease since the fear of the Wall will soon become a reality.
Now, one could say that these numbers could also skyrocket if people figure that it’d be better to try to cross now, before the Wall is finished building, than later. I would say there’s a possibility of that if I didn’t expect more funding to likely go to border agencies. If I’m thinking about this possibility, I have no doubt that Trump has thought about it as well and would likely do what he can to keep a surge in those numbers from happening as a result of this bill passing.
But I’m getting a bit ahead of myself here. Frankly, I don’t actually expect this bill to pass Congress. But if it does, I’m sure Trump is thinking about repercussions and possibilities about the mere news getting out that it will and/or has passed. And if it does pass, I don’t want you to think that Trump has betrayed you or abandoned his campaign promises. In fact, he’s fulfilling a big one with this plan as it is.
Either way, I think things will be fine. And you know me. I’m more of a realist than an optimist.
