People often ask me why I hate the Republican Party with such a virulent passion, and I think this article should be enough of an answer at least until the weekend.
- We have a GOP-controlled House and Senate that is absolutely worthless when it involves anything other than tax cuts, Israel, war-mongering, foreign subversion, and ripping basic benefits from the hands of the working class.
- We have a Conservative-leaning Supreme Court that can’t even conserve the concept of marriage as it was known since the Stone Age.
- And we have a GOP President that sounds good on Twitter and during rallies, but who can’t even enforce the most basic laws regarding the literal invasion of the country.
We were promised a wall and deportations, and yet all we have gotten was a flood of subhumanity that will reach deluge status before the new decade dawns.
Illegal immigration by families surged this summer after the collapse of President Trump’s zero-tolerance border policy, reaching record levels and leaving the Trump administration frustrated over the lack of easy solutions.
More than 16,600 illegal immigrant parents and children traveling together were nabbed by the Border Patrol in September, marking the worst month on record and nearly twice the numbers from before the administration tried — and then backed off — zero tolerance.
That helped fuel a surge for the entire fiscal year, with agents catching more than 107,000 family members over 12 months, a 38 percent increase over 2017, and eclipsing the previous record set under President Obama in 2016.
The numbers were released as a migrant caravan, also made up of parents and children, streams north from Central America through Mexico.
“Something needs to be done,” Mr. Trump said Tuesday at the White House. “You can’t have this happen.”
Then do something other than bloviate on social media like a child, you mouth-breathing orange buffoon.
You like Bibi Netanyahu, right?
Then be more like him – he orders his army to machine gun women and children on a regular basis if they so much as glare at Israel’s border wall.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he is working with the Mexican government to try to head off the caravan. Whatever happens, he said, the migrants won’t make it into the U.S. this way.
“I can tell you with certainty we are determined that illegal entry into the United States from this caravan will not be possible,” he said.
That could be a tough promise to keep. Administration officials drew similar lines earlier this year, during a smaller spring caravan, and hundreds of them did come into the U.S.
Of 401 people from the caravan who went through an initial asylum screening, 374 passed it — a 93 percent rate. Almost all of them are likely still in the country.
They are part of the record-setting numbers from fiscal year 2018, which ran from Oct. 1, 2017, to Sept. 30, 2018.
The Border Patrol nabbed 396,579 people, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers encountered another 124,511 trying to come into the country through official ports of entry. The combined 521,090 people is 25 percent more than 2017, though fewer than the 553,378 unauthorized migrants snared in 2016.
Of the 521,090, nearly one-third were family units and another 11 percent were children traveling unaccompanied — nearly all of them from Central America.
Look, I’m not trying to depress people or black pill them in a way that is meant to be demoralizing just for fun.
I’m trying to get people to realize that we’re entering a stage in the fight when we’ll be up against brutal odds, and all evidence from personal experience and research has shown me that it’s the men and women with an understanding of the situation who fare best.
We may likely (eventually) be the racial equivalent of a wounded animal trapped in a corner with the jackals closing in for the kill.
Knowing this will allow us to stand and come out on top without resorting to weird delusions of savior figures secretly playing 88-D chess on our behalf.
