If the Trump administration are Nazis, why are so many trying to break into such an oppressive regime?

What is it with the left that keeps at this line that the Trump administration supports Nazis and Nazi causes? If that were true, why are so many illegal immigrants still risking life and limb to break into such an oppressive regime? If the left knew their history, the Jews and other untermenschen went out of their way to escape persecution. They weren’t making a b-line to seek out the SS or the Einsatzgruppen to seek salvation.

One can be sure if the left ever visited a proper concentration camp (CM has been to Auschwitz I, Birkenau (Auschwitz II), Treblinka, Sobibor, Majdanek, Dachau and Sachsenhausen) they could never draw such a conclusion. These places are gruesome reminders of institutional murder. CBP camps are nothing by comparison and any attempts to make an equivalence is downright insulting.

That didn’t stop 29yo Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling detainment centres on the border “concentration camps.” Given most of those making the journey are connected via smart phones, they aren’t making the journey blindly. They assume all the well known risks of using traffickers – sexual assault and kidnapping included.

Make all the arguments for visa overstays being the bulk of illegal immigration claims but people need only open their minds to the truth that the racist, hateful and fascist US is still preferable to their homeland. Otherwise why overstay? No logic staying where one is not wanted. The idea is to flee oppression, not swarm around a fascist honeypot.

Remember when Trump said he’d ship illegals to sanctuary cities when Democrats held their resolve over funding border security? Why weren’tsanctuary cities, all publicly open arms about accepting illegals, balking at receiving busloads of them? The great irony is that a growing number of illegal immigrants are choosing to move OUT of sanctuary cities. In 2007, 7.7mn (63.1%) lived in the 20 largest sanctuary metros to 6.5mn (60.7%) in 2016 according to Pew. During that time 1.5m illegal immigrants were deported (12.2mn ->10.7mn).

Is that why Democrat presidential candidates were on stage raising their hand in support of providing free healthcare to illegal immigrants? Not even being a liberal led sanctuary city seems enough these days to convince illegals to stay. The out of control feces crisis in San Francisco is enough for anyone to question living in a sanctuary city, illegal or not. Is that what “free mobility” in a totalitarian society looks like?

How much harder left can these candidates turn? Even Bernie Sanders is looking positively centrist…Joe Biden looks like an unhinged right wing nut job vs the likes of Harris, Booker and Warren. “Comprendes, amigo?

Now AOC is on record screaming on Twitter with,

I just left the 1st CBP facility. I see why the CBP officers were being so physically & sexually threatening towards me. Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets…This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress.

Reports are coming that AOC hurled abuse at the CBP officers. Undoubtedly there will be CCTV footage to confirm or deny these allegations.

No one is arguing that conditions are ideal. They are not supposed to be. It doesn’t condone any human rights violations but at the same time, in many cases the result is self-imposed. Honduras and Mexico are democracies not in a state of war, civil or otherwise. These people are fleeing for better lives, not for their lives. It is a big distinction and the US taxpayer is not obliged to sponsor anyone who thinks open borders are a right. If illegal immigrants didn’t try to cross the border illegally it is likely they wouldn’t be in a camp, much less locked in a cell.

Ana Garcia Carias, wife of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, said, “Stay in the country and let’s look for solutions to support you.” She visited the US border and said that she didn’t recommend her citizens go to the US undocumented. Smart woman.

CM has no qualms helping those in genuine need of asylum. CM has a problem with those that conflate issues and use comparisons to Nazism as a reason to shame others into accepting their dogma of economic refugees. Feel free to decide for yourself when looking at the data published by ICE. No wonder feelings matter more than facts.

With all the free stuff thrown at potential voters by the Democrat nominees don’t expect facts to matter. After all if Americans who didn’t go to college have to pay off the debts of those that did, perhaps we should ask the homeless to pay for those who took out mortgages.

TDS using Obama-era pictures

Hollywood is home of the champagne socialist hypocrites. Nancy Lee Grahn went on a rampage disparaging the Trump administration’s treatment of children on the border. She claimed that it was torture to make them sleep on the cement floor under emergency blankets with the lights left on.

Her tweet was as follows:

Sadly she used pictures from 2015. Merely cropped out the date hoping no one would notice. Sadly Twitter is a veritable minefield.

Best get facts right before emotional pleas based on a wish that it occurred under the administration she hates so much.

Hey! NY Times – you need new editors

B27D9E23-440B-4D38-BDC2-51B2ABF97DEF.jpeg

Seriously NY Times. Just once. CM dares you. Write some balance on this debate about tracking undocumented kids? Where are these magical editors seeking to ensure “all the news that is fit to print”? Why not write the truth of “why” tracking migrant children is so hard? Everything bad doesn’t happen because of the Trump administration. CBS wrote in Feb 2016 (hint: Trump wasn’t president) the following,

Finding immigrant children with outstanding deportation orders is also complicated by the fact that they often are no longer at the addresses provided to the government…We are out looking,” Homan said. “But they are hard to find. A lot of these folks who don’t show up in court, we don’t know where they’re at.”

Yes, the truth isn’t that the immigration agencies don’t keep track of the kids, their often (illegal) immigrant families don’t want ICE to know where they are to prevent their own deportation so move around making them hard to track.

Then again if the NYT want to run the narrative that the Trump administration is a bunch of Nazis why not write that it is woefully incompetent in executing its draconian plans to systematically tag and terrorize children?

Oh, that is right the problem started in the Obama era with respect to this. Don’t let that fact distort yet another problem that needs fixing due to poorly laid out policy. Then again CNN was at it with its ideological twists only two days ago.

Or perhaps In Jan 2016 when WaPo noted, “The Office of Refugee Resettlement, an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services, failed to do proper background checks of adults who claimed the children…several Guatemalan teens were found in a dilapidated trailer park near Marion, Ohio, where they were being held captive in squalid conditions by traffickers and forced to work“. So slave labour to repay human traffickers? Let’s encourage more to attempt the crossing?

Yes, the system clearly needs to be changed but if you read the NYT or WaPo one would believe the entire problem has Trump’s finger prints all over it. Clearly not.

Democracy may die in darkness but stupidity is disinfected by sunlight.

Dear WaPo, please advise the President on the correct balance

Dear Washington Post,

In your article titled ‘Trump’s administration isn’t very diverse. Photo ops make it glaringly obvious,‘ you failed to do one important thing. Like much of the reporting in left wing journalism you find it easy to find fault in everything Trump does yet offer no solutions. If you have such a strong view on the subject please let your readers know what is the politically correct mix of races, genders and sexual orientation. Because instead of perhaps appointing people based on merit and ability to carry out his orders to the letter it is more important to focus on identity. I am not saying all his picks are necessarily sensible or palatable but that is his choice to make. If he screws up with his team and loses office in 4 years then it will be his own fault.

To turn the argument on its head imagine if Trump appointed Milo Yiannopoulos to his administration. He is not a US citizen but suppose he was. He ticks the homosexual box and black boyfriend box. There has to be virtue signaling there but the left would drop all that because he is a White Supremacist. It shows that even identity politics has limitations and conditions.

Here is a great example of why affirmative action is a bad thing, especially when signaled by the minority. Donna Laframboise wrote in her book, “The delinquent teenager” the shenanigans of how identity politics is put ahead of ability in the construction of the climate bible.

We all made the mistake of believing the IPCC was a gem of an organization simply because it is connected to protecting the environment…How can a young man without even a Masters degree become an IPCC lead author? Good question. . . Rather than recruiting real experts like Reiter the IPCC enlisted young, inexperienced, non-experts instead.”

A quote from an IPCC lead author: “There are far too many politically correct appointments, so that developing country scientists are appointed who have insufficient competence to do anything useful.”

A quote from a team member from a developing country: “The team members from the developing countires (including myself) were made to feel welcome and accepted as part of the team. In reality we were out of our intellectual depth as meaningful contributors to the process.”

Yes, that is right. Inclusion is more important than qualification. Let’s put people who aren’t in a position to add real value to a process and use those results to allocate billions of dollar and drive policies affecting billions of people.

“Rather than keeping its distance from those whose careers have been associated with activism, the scientific establishment now honors, celebrates and promotes such people.”

So I ask WaPo again what is the correct balance? He has two Asian American women and one African American male but no Hispanics. Even if Obama had 39% women in his cabinet, were they all stellar? Did Americans think Attorney General Loretta Lynch meeting Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac the day before the FBI was to pass its judgement on his wife’s criminality spoke of dreadful ethics or is it OK because she’s an African American woman? Frankly it shouldn’t matter her gender or ethnicity. Bad judgement is just that and the more I read such garbage journalism the more I know how playing the identity card will alienate more and more Americans.
