Polarization is going to get worse.
Everyone seems to agree on that. What does that mean though in practice?
The Los Angeles city council voted unanimously to pursue a lawsuit and criminal probe against Texas over its migrant busing program this week.
The Wednesday vote came just hours after the eleventh migrant bus since June arrived in the city’s jurisdiction carrying 42 migrants. The council requested that the city attorney’s office investigate whether Texas Gov. Greg Abbott had committed any crimes through the program, and whether there is justification for a lawsuit.
Abbott’s program has delivered a total of 435 migrants to Los Angeles since buses started arriving on June 14. In all, the program has sent more than 30,000 migrants to Democrat-led cities across the country, including New York City, Chicago and Washington, D.C. …
The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to look into whether the city can sue the state of Texas and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for sending a busload of migrants to Los Angeles on June 14, and to investigate whether Abbott’s actions violated any criminal laws.
“These motions are about investigating whether Gov. Greg Abbott committed kidnapping, human trafficking or any other crimes when he sent vulnerable families on a 23-hour bus ride with little or no food or water,” Councilmember Hugo Soto-Martínez said shortly before the 13-0 vote. …
I saw this while driving home last night.
When I read this article, it occurred to me that “The Collapse” that so many people in our movement have speculated about for decades is underway. It began several years ago.
We are in “The Collapse” which can be conceived as a slow motion breakdown of the civil order, political order, economic order, cultural order and global order. Norms are melting away. We have a folk memory of previous collapses that our ancestors have been through. We imagine “The Collapse” as either a revolution, a civil war or an economic depression because these things have happened in the past.
Today, we are at the point in “The Collapse” where the former president of the United States and frontrunner for the Republican nomination is facing nearly 1,000 years in prison and the governor of Texas could be facing criminal charges in California for transporting illegal aliens to Los Angeles. We are invited to believe that this is perfectly normal and something called “the rule of law.”
California currently bans state-funded or state-sponsored travel to 23 states:
What are they going to do?
Will Gov. Greg Abbott be wheeled into Los Angeles to be indicted and arrested like Trump? Will Abbott have to face “a jury of his peers” in Los Angeles? If Abbott is going to arrested for transporting illegal aliens to California, then Ron DeSantis has to be arrested too for that stunt in Martha’s Vineyard, right?
Note: In the future, we will be covering new developments in “The Collapse” here as it unfolds in real time. The Bolsheviks are currently seizing power and arresting and incarcerating their opposition.
