With the much under-reported partial federal government “shut-down” being eclipsed by the battle over The Wall by President Trump, who is aggravating the republican swamp-dwellers by actually keeping his campaign promise, compared to recalcitrant democrats claiming that the entire concept is “immoral”, what passes for an unbiased press is hoping that you’ll pay more attention to the shinny object (aka The Wall debate) rather than what is really happening in America.
I’ve got to admit, I was more than a little underwhelmed at last night’s speech.
A quick check of what is available on the speech easily corroborates the MSM spin-machine rushing into action to provide cover for their own side.
Obviously video from C-Span nor The White House itself was readily available.
Nothing really new was actually said, and that’s the problem (more on that in a bit).
Pres. Trump reiterated his position, albeit in an un-Trump-like fashion (very measured and scripted).
Team d, who looked more like two p.o.’d parents ready to scold their teenager for coming home after curfew, were just dripping with emotion of how NOT having the American Government performing non-essential functions (which just begs the question of why we are even paying for them in the first place), can be quickly and easily remedied if only Pres. Trump would acquiesce.
Sorry, scooter! Pres. Trump already did that multiple times already via Beavis & Butt-Head (aka Lyin’ Ryan & Squish McConnell).
IMHO, Pres. Trump went about it the wrong way. He used words, when imagery would’ve been far more effective.
Below is a very small sampling of what I mean (just wait for Chuck’s comment in the clip below):
Actions from the “friendly & peaceful migrants” from just last week.
Actions from the “friendly & peaceful migrants” from just last month.
People make resolutions (which they‘ll most likely break before February 1st).
Another session of Congress prepares to ramp up in the midst of a government “shutdown”.
The democrats give President Trump more posturing and obstructionism because…well, illegal aliens (and Americans on the public dole) matter significantly more to them than the safety of the people who actually put them in office in the first place.
So in the midst of all of the post-election analysis, we’ve heard the “experts” from other outlets drone on about why the 2018 Election went the way it did.
We’ve heard them tell us that this is the vaunted “Blue Wave” sweeping across America. Despite the rash of ballots “miraculously” showing up in places like Florida (and apparently now here) along with Arizona, democrats still only control the House.
We’ve been told that this is the year of the woman. Yet, I’m waiting to hear why superior candidates like Lang and Epstein didn’t benefit from this?
Finally, the media (or infotainment complex…take your pick), dredges up their favorite rationale for last Tuesday Night’s results: It’s all President Trump’s fault.
The gubernatorial race reveals stark differences between the candidates.
As thousands of migrants march their way up through Mexico intent on overrunning our Southern order, the issue of illegal immigration has become center stage in the race for governor of Michigan as Republican Bill Schuette hammers away at his opponent, Democrat candidate Gretchen Whitmer, and her radical support for dismantling America’s borders.
Whitmer’s support for open borders (a euphemism for ‘no borders’), sanctuary cities, and amnesty became even more evident last week as the two candidates faced off in a debate. Schuette’s positions were clear and rock solid. He boldly said that if elected, there will be “no sanctuary cities in Michigan.” Whitmer, on the other hand, has advocated for the undoing and abolishing of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE), and her extremist running mate, Detroit activist Garlin Gilchrist, suggested that the Department of Homeland Security should be removed, a move that would leave America unprotected.
In the past, Whitmer has said that open borders were “fundamental” to who we are as Americans. She has promised to sue the federal government to have National Guard troops removed from our Southern Border. But this past week, when confronted with her position on critical issues, Whitmer dodged and weaved, refusing to answer questions about her support for harboring criminal aliens in sanctuary cities, instead pivoting to claims that Mr. Schuette’s positions were “extreme.”
" .. Immigration policy should first benefit the citizens and lawful residents of the United States. "
Reflection on the 14th amendment along with historic reference in parts I and II.
Wrapping up with the conclusion, we have a treat. Fuscaldo answers the questions many have had about a recent high profile announcement. Enjoy!
An essential part of United States immigration policy is based on the executive branch’s current practice of extending birthright citizenship to children born in the United States whose parents are either illegal aliens; a temporary nonresident alien (guest worker) living in the United States, or aliens lawfully in the country for a limited time and purpose.
This practice has never been authorized by any statute or court decision. There is no Supreme Court decision squarely holding that children born in the United States to illegal aliens or temporary nonresident aliens (guest workers) living in the United States are automatically citizens of the United States.
I was doing some reconnoitering several days ago up in Vassar.
Five-way intersections aside, nothing stood out of the ordinary while I got the lay of the land and some pictures for future use.
What I did get though as I was starting to head back was a text from someone asking for me to stop at certain well-known Michigan business (Bronners) and pick them up something on the way back.
I’ll bet that most people here would be surprised at how close they’ll be “storing” illegal aliens near a major Michigan tourist area. Goes a long way towards explaining why illegal aliens would be needing training provided by a “Culinary Arts Vocational Counselor”.
Long story short. After getting the item in question, I walked around for a few minutes and sat in on one of the videos they show visitors about Christmas, Bronners, etc.. The video isn’t what caught my attention, it’s what I saw when they turned on the lights that did. Wedged in-between the screen and the Hummell displays was a lot of Americana.
Trying to placate the latest batch of “visitors” to Michigan?
Yes, I did bring it up to the staff there (several of them, actually).
No, they didn’t appear very interested in fixing it.
And for the record, no I didn’t have the time to deal with the FPD after chucking a certain flag into the nearest dumpster.
