Democratic immigration policies have moved to the left of Democratic voters

It wasn’t too long ago that there was a good percentage of pro-life Democrats. There were pro-growth Democrats who believed in lowering taxes to stimulate the economy. There were even many Democrats, including the 2008 versions of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, who felt marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Those days are behind us. Now pro-lifers are being driven from the party. The only thing Democrats believe can stimulate the economy is raising taxes and dolling out bailouts. Marriage is just an opinion now to Democrats; if someone wants to marry a tree, who are we to stop them? Love is love is love.

Immigration may be the final bastion of rational thought among Democratic voters. While publicly most will oppose the wall and support sanctuary cities, is that how they really feel? Are they truly oblivious to the dangers of illegal immigration in general and migrant caravans in particular? Or do they lash out against actions to stop illegal immigration out of hatred for President Trump.

Anecdotally, I’ve seen the latter. I talk to many Democrats in my journeys. If we talk about abortion, they’re adamant about reproductive rights. If we talk about tax cuts, they are certain they only help the rich. If we talk about marriage… let’s just say I don’t even try to discuss traditional marriage with them. But when the conversation turns to immigration, their arguments melt away quickly.

All one has to do is see the news. As much as mainstream media tries to hide it, people like Kate Steinle, Ronald Da Silva, Shayley Estes, Drew Rosenberg, and Sarah Root are gone because of illegal immigrants. The burden on taxpayers is tremendous and flies in the face of leftist arguments that we must do more to help homeless people in America.

Then, there’s the migrant caravan. The mainstream media narrative that thousands of harmless, broken people are just looking for help is easily contradicted by videos of healthy, angry young men throwing rocks at Mexican border officers. The narrative doesn’t jibe when the vast majority refuse the offer of safety, security, jobs, schooling, and healthcare by Mexico. Their narrative breaks down completely when reports surface of children getting kidnapped and people being murdered WITHIN the caravan itself.

If there is violent criminal activity in the caravan while it’s on its way here, who is stupid enough to believe that violent criminal activity won’t continue if they make it across our border?

After two years of GOP control of the House, Senate, and White House, three realities must be acknowledge by Democratic voters. Abortion rights have not been taken away. The economy and job numbers have dramatically improved thanks in large part to the tax cuts. Marriage equality hasn’t been touched. These three things that are so important to the average Democrat have been maintained or improved upon since Republicans took over. Voting against them now for these reasons is silly.

Illegal immigration, on the other hand, has been affected. In fact, it’s gotten worse recently. That’s not because Republicans haven’t tried to fix it. It’s because Democrats have obstructed and Republicans on Capitol Hill haven’t been strong enough to fight them for some reason.

If Democrats take over the House, the illegal immigration problem will grow worse. More migrant caravans will feel empowered to make the trek and breach our borders because they’ll believe Democrats will protect them. This election really is about whether Americans want to support legal immigration or illegal immigration.

If Democrats win this election with their policy of open borders intact, it will never change. The leftward lurch will be vindicated and will continue. The sensible thing for Democratic and Independent voters would be to halt this lurch by not rewarding it on Tuesday.

The complete fraud that is socialism

The complete fraud that is socialism

Once again we are witness to the age-old scam of socialism with Leftists making promises to attain power that can never be fulfilled.

Long before Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago exposed the systematic oppression, torture, incarceration and deliberate mass murder that are the hallmarks of socialistic slavery. James A. Michener documented the 1956 Hungarian uprising against communism in his book ‘The Bridge at Andau’. While both are great literary works, ‘The Bridge at Andau’ laid bare the complete fraud that is the collectivist ideologies in creating a ‘Heaven on Earth’ or ‘worker’s paradise’ that never comes to fruition.

The selling of socialistic slavery to a new generation tends to follow a certain type of ‘progress’. Promises are made for all kinds of largess ranging from Free Healthcare, Free Housing, Free College, Free food to even Free income. All paid for with other people’s money. Never mind that It’s impossible to fulfill all of these wondrous asseverations. Appearances must be made to at least begin the process, so the ever-present task of wealth redistribution begins at the point of a gun.

This is also why the Socialist-Left obsesses over gun confiscation and the suppression of free speech. It is imperative for the Leftists to disarm the people since they generally object to having their property stolen from them. However, we are getting ahead of ourselves, this is to document how this exploitation of the people has ‘progressed’ in other collectivist enclaves to better understand how this crime against the people is perpetrated.

Why do collectivist regimes always require secret police apparatus and the suppression of Liberty?

This question was detailed in The Bridge at Andau in the chapters on the ‘AVO man’. In which he discusses the secret police organisation of the Hungarian Communists, the AVO (Allamvedelmi Osztaly). He bluntly asked and answered the question:

Why must communism depend on such dregs of society?

No matter on what elevated plane communism begins its program of total dictatorship. it sooner or later runs into such economic and social problems that some strong-arm force is required to keep the civil population under control.

As is the case now as it was then, a nation’s Socialist-Left will promise just about anything to attain power over the people:

When communism is wooing the workers in Csepel, all kinds of exaggerated promises are made if they seem likely to awaken men’s aspirations and their cupidity. These promises are couched in such simple terms and such effective symbols that they become immediate goals of the revolution.

Review briefly what communist agitators had once promised the Hungarians who appear in this book: consumer goods such as they had never known before, increased wages. increased social benefits, shorter hours of work, improved education for everyone, a greater social freedom, and a government directly responsible to the working classes. Under communism such promises were never even remotely capable of attainment.

[Our Emphasis]
If all of that sounds eerily familiar, it’s because that’s part of a very old song and dance that has deceived many a generation into enslaving themselves under socialism. Consider this recent story from the Associated Press:

Democrats lurch left on top policies as 2020 primary begins

NEW YORK (AP) — Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro launched his campaign by pledging support for “Medicare for All,” free universal preschool, a large public investment in renewable energy and two years of free college for all Americans.
….

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who is expected to launch his presidential campaign soon, has sponsored legislation to create a federal jobs guarantee program in several communities across America.

The pilot program… could ultimately transform the U.S. labor market by providing well-paid government employment with benefits for anyone who wants it.

[Our Emphasis]

As Margaret Thatcher so aptly surmised, eventually they will run out of other people’s money. In our case in the states, that is already the situation given the enormous debt and unfunded liabilities reaching into the stratosphere of trillions of dollars. Of course, this hasn’t deterred committed collectivists such as Democratic mayor Bill de Blasio who recently stated that ‘There’s plenty of money in the world… It’s just in the wrong hands!’ Never mind that it is morally wrong to steal the property of others or that once a society turns down the dead-end of socialism there will always be more people wanting more money from those who have it.

Wealth redistribution scams will always wreck the economy. A socialist regime that nationalizes the economy can never function better than one of economic Liberty. Soon enough everything breaks down, the people see through the lies and the government has to start breaking heads. Thus it is imperative that they have previously confiscated the people’s guns and made it illegal to defend themselves.

The Takeaway

Socialistic schemes always run contrary to basic human nature. Rewarding someone for not working will always result in less work. Conversely, punishing someone for working will also result in less work.

This basic logic of human nature seems to be lost on Leftists. But perhaps it is not. They have to know their schemes have never and will never work. And yet they still try to impose them on everyone else. Perhaps they know of the epic fraud they are continually perpetrating on society, but they don’t care. That will be the subject of our next installment.

Dan Crenshaw: Only six Democrats voted to pay federal employees affected by shutdown

Dan Crenshaw Only six Democrats voted to pay federal employees affected by shutdown

While most were drinking the mainstream media Kool-Aid that Republicans and President Trump are responsible for keeping paychecks out of the hands of federal employees affected by the government shutdown, a bill was brought to the House floor that would have paid them their first paycheck of 2019.

It failed. Despite six Democrats voting in favor of the bill, the Democratic majority shot it down, preventing their political pawns – the 800,000 people directly affected by the government shutdown – from getting paid.

Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) pointed it out and received a good amount of interactions on Twitter, but most in mainstream media refused to run this narrative-busting truth.

It’s crystal clear to anyone paying attention that their anti-wall rhetoric is driven by the good optics they’re getting from the press. If the people would stop being sheep and listen to that quiet voice of reason in the back of their minds, they’d realize two things:

  1. Democrats don’t oppose the wall. They oppose giving the President a win. They will keep the government shutdown going as long as possible and any attempts to help the people affected by it will be shot down.
  2. All of the false claims about the wall are politically motivated outside of the realm of common sense. The latest talking point, that the wall will be ineffective, is contradicted by every statistic that compares illegal immigration with or without a wall.

This is clear proof the Democrats have no desire to help the people if it means taking away their leverage on the President. Given the choice between paying federal employees or harming the President politically, they chose political expediency.

To understand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we must look at her worldview

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has baffled people on both sides of the political aisle since her meteoric rise began. She has an uncanny ability to say silly things and get away with it, at least when her mainstream media handlers control the situation.

One quote she made during her political campaign caught many people by surprise because it was so blatantly wrong, even left-leaning PolitiFact had to rate it as “Pants on Fire!”

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”

This is either a bald-faced lie or it’s a reflection of her backwards worldview. I’m going with the latter. After watching her speak and how she responds to questions, I don’t believe she’s some political mastermind who is manipulating the Democratic world to bend at her will. I think she sincerely believes the falsehoods she’s peddling.

Does she think the world is going to end in 12 years? Yes. Does she believe we’ll “just pay for” the $32 trillion Medicare-for-All? Yes. Does she think unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs? Yes. Her ignorance would be adorable if it weren’t so dangerous.
