Why leftists refuse to accept our sovereignty as a nation

Why leftists refuse to accept our sovereignty as a nation

There are plenty of theories about why leftists continuously push for open borders even when they call it something else. That is actually becoming more rare; they just call for open borders directly now. The most prevalent argument from the right is that it’s a conspiracy by Democrats who see immigrants as their easiest future voting block to indoctrinate. Some contend that opening the borders is simply a way of virtue signaling their hypocritical view of humanitarian “equality” that ignores Americans who are also in need. But it really comes down to a single reason that is so cynical, even most conservatives miss it.

In our politically polarized society, most leftists oppose the law and order doctrines associated with sovereignty simply because conservatives promote it. Their arguments are designed to oppose border security, legal immigration, deportations, and cooperation with federal law enforcement because that’s the opposite perspective of their sworn enemies on the right.

It’s probably hard for many conservatives to believe because it doesn’t make sense to a logic-driven mentality. Why would anyone oppose something just because their political enemies support it? To answer this, we have to look at their arguments and actions and compare them with the rest of their doctrine. We also have to look at the recent past, the “good ol’ days” of less than a decade ago when border security was a bipartisan goal.

Do open borders make sense compared to the rest of their ideology? No. They believe there is too big of a gap between the rich and the poor. Their argument for income equality in all its forms combined with their calls for the rich to pay for everything runs in stark contrast to an open borders mentality which will increase the income gap. Instead of making fewer people poor, they allegedly want more people to be poor. One could argue that they’re so delusional they think there’s enough money made by the rich to help all poor people everywhere, but that’s a stretch.

Lest we forget, it was Senator Obama who echoed the beliefs of his party when he said, “We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States, undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, lawfully to become immigrants in this country.”

Who said this about illegal immigration, Obama or Trump?

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/23/said-illegal-immigration-obama-trump/Today, it’s often hard to recall a moment when leftists were much more careful about their calls for open borders. Those who were running for political office were especially careful, not wanting to sound like they were opposed to law and order. They didn’t want to anger immigrants who came here legally, nor those who are in the process to become Americans.

Spoiler alert: the following quote, which could easily come from President Trump at any given moment, was spoken by Senator Barack Obama a short decade ago.

We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States, undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, lawfully to become immigrants in this country.

Listening to the Democratic Party of today, it’s hard to imagine the majority of them ever wanted to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the country. They’ve deviated in recent years because it became politically expedient. Their base started embracing illegal immigration because conservatives pushed so hard against it. The leftists’ need to be the polar opposites of all things deemed conservative created false ideologies they were able to justify with the help of open border proponents indoctrinating them into the dangerous mindset. Now, the shift from logic to untenable open borders idiocy is nearly complete in the Democratic Party itself. Common sense has been replaced by “anything conservative must be bad.”

This has been brewing for a while, but it was the rise of President Trump that sharpened the focus of leftists. They once supported tariffs. Now they oppose it because the President is using them. They used to want bump stocks banned. Now that the President is pushing for it, they’re silent. They wanted criminal justice reform. Ever since the President started touting it, they’ve suddenly decided the measures they supported less than a year ago must be bad because “orange man bad.”

This is the state of our political discourse. Everything on the right must be opposed by the left. Visa versa is true as well. If conservatives want it, leftists feel obligated to oppose it. They don’t form their own perspectives. They are just the dissent no matter what.

Illegal alien Wilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman expected to be charged in 4 murders

A man believed by authorities to have committed four murders in Northern Nevada was taken into custody on January 19, possibly bringing to an end a killing streak that has worried residents for the last two weeks.

19-year-old Wilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman was arrested by Washoe County Sheriff’s department on charges of burglary, possession of stolen property, and immigration law violations. Martinez-Guzman is an illegal alien with a federal hold. The District Attorney’s office plans to file murder charges against him as well, claiming they have sufficient evidence to convict him.

Murder charges expected against suspect in killings

https://www.kolotv.com/content/news/Murder-charges-expected-against-suspect-in-Northern-NV-murders-504626241.htmlThe first killing took place January 9 or 10, 2019. 56-year-old Connie Koontz was found shot to death at her home in the Gardnerville Ranchos. She was found dead by her mother, who also lives in the home and is hard of hearing and disabled.

January 13, 74-year-old Sophia Renken was found dead in her home about a mile away, also shot to death.

January 16, the bodies of 81-year-old Gerald David, a former Reno Rodeo President, and his wife, 80-year-old Sharon David, were found dead in their home on La Guardia Lane in south Reno, near Zolezzi. They also had been shot to death.

My Take

If he is proven guilty, this will be another example of American citizens dying at the hands of an illegal immigrant. How many people have to die before Democrats take the border crisis seriously enough to do something about it?

Title 10: How border wall construction could start tomorrow without Congress or a national emergency

Published

Title X How border wall construction could start tomorrow without Congress or a national emergency d

What I’m about to describe to you isn’t a new idea. In fact, it’s probably been thrown about by Congressmen, Senators, and White House advisers since before the government shutdown started. But there’s a reluctance to take advantage of it that I’ll discuss a little later. For now, let’s talk about Title 10, subtitle A, part 1, chapter 15, section 284 of the United States code.

Yes, it’s a mouthful, but stay with me on it.

Title 10 refers to the armed forces. Subtitle A covers general military law. Part 1 details legal military powers. Chapter 15 covers military support for civilian law enforcement agencies. Hmm. You probably already know where I’m heading with this, but let’s dig into section 284, which is titled, “Support for counterdrug activities and activities to counter transnational organized crime.”

Subsection A reads:

(a)Support to Other Agencies.—The Secretary of Defense may provide support for the counterdrug activities or activities to counter transnational organized crime of any other department or agency of the Federal Government or of any State, local, tribal, or foreign law enforcement agency for any of the purposes set forth in subsection (b) or (c), as applicable, if—

(1) in the case of support described in subsection (b), such support is requested—

(A) by the official who has responsibility for the counterdrug activities or activities to counter transnational organized crime of the department or agency of the Federal Government, in the case of support for other departments or agencies of the Federal Government;

Okay, so far, so good. The Secretary of Defense can provide support for law enforcement agencies at all levels requesting assistance to fight drug or organized crime that’s coming from transnational sources. That means drug lords trafficking across the border. It means MS-13 sending members into America. Heck, a local county sheriff on the border could ask the Secretary of Defense for assistance if he couldn’t keep up with heroine traffickers crossing the Rio Grande.

Now, the next logical question is what can the Defense Secretary do to support law enforcement agencies at the border? The answer is found in subsection B, line 7.

(7) Construction of roads and fences and installation of lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States.

Some may balk at this point. They’ll say we need a wall, not a fence. I have no idea if it’s legal to call the steel slats the President is requesting a fence, per se, but even if they can’t be considered fencing, we should take a quick peek at Israel’s border with Egypt. Prime Minister Netanyahu recently Tweeted an image of the fence that has virtually eliminated illegal immigration on their southern border.

As you can see, this isn’t a chain link fence that border crossers could climb over or cut through in a matter of seconds. This is a sturdy, tall fence with a gnarly razor wire at the top. By itself, it cannot solve our border crisis. Combined with monitoring technology, increased border patrols, and a concerted campaign to inform people south of the border that they need to use the designated ports of entry, this will dramatically improve our border security.

The best part is, we don’t need to keep the government shutdown. We don’t need to convince Democrats to come to their senses. The President wouldn’t have to declare a national emergency that would wrap the border wall in so much red tape, we won’t see construction beginning for years. And, we wouldn’t have to trade amnesty to get it done.

This would be a beautiful move for the President. Imagine how Democrats would look if they passed on his offer to extend DACA protections, only to have him rescind his offer and build the barrier anyway. They’ll look like stubborn fools who had an opportunity to make a trade and squandered that opportunity with nothing to show for it.

Now, if you’re wondering why this isn’t done, I’ll assume it’s because of the wording. It’s a fence. The President wants a wall. Heck, I want a wall. But at this point, I’ll take a tall, thick fence with gnarly razor wire on top instead of the open air that currently separates the United States from illegal immigrants, drug traffickers, gang members, and terrorists.

If you would like to see this happen, please alert everyone you know about this information. Get every conservative on your Twitter list to Tweet this at the President and those in his orbit. Share it heavily on Facebook. Let them know we want the border secured and the government open and there’s a solution sitting right in front of them. Let’s make America safe again as quickly as possible.

As predicted, Trump offers DACA amnesty in exchange for border wall

As predicted Trump offers DACA amnesty in exchange for border wall

Throughout Trump’s first two years in office, I’ve been one of only a handful of conservative voices shouting from the rooftops that the New York liberal’s promise to fix America’s out-of-control illegal immigration problem was nothing but a lie.

As a candidate, Trump promised to build a “big beautiful powerful wall” on our southern border at Mexico’s expense, and he promised to overturn Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order that allowed illegals to stay in America indefinitely. Unfortunately, the “wall” has become an “artistically designed” barrier of some sort funded by the U.S. taxpayer, and DACA is not only still in effect, it’s on its way to becoming permanent.

While the reality of Trump’s broken promises dealing with illegal immigration have been crystal clear to those not drinking the orange Kool-Aid, his inevitable betrayal on the issue has been brought sharply into focus since last summer.

In May 2018, as Trump and the GOP were looking for ways to save their jobs ahead of the midterms, the House Freedom Caucus joined hands with Democrats to push for a “fix” to DACA.

In June 2018, Paul Ryan proposed a plan that would allow DREAMers to legally stay in the country and be put on the pathway to citizenship in exchange for $23 billion for building a border wall.

Following their September 2018 budget betraying funding everything from Planned Parenthood to DACA and sanctuary cities, rumors began spreading around Washington that Trump was ready to cut an immigration deal with Democrats in light of the reality that the Democrats were about to retake the House in the midterms.

The Democrats did retake the House, and in the days since their victory, Trump and the GOP have been laying the foundation for their inevitable immigration betrayal. With the help of Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner, trading DACA amnesty for a border wall is now the official position of the Trump administration and the GOP-controlled Senate.

So, it came as no surprise when Trump proposed a deal over the weekend to end to his manufactured government shutdown by offering Democrats a three-year extension of DACA in exchange for $5 billion for border security funding — an idea originally conceived by Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Three years? I’m sure it’s just a coincidence, but that’s just enough time to kick the can down the road until after his 2020 election … assuming there is one. And just in case there are any doubts about the motivation behind this three-year timeframe, consider this: Mitch McConnell, who has refused to let the Senate vote on the shutdown, has endorsed Trump’s offer and will hold vote on it this week.

Mickey is also up for re-election in 2020.

For now, Democrats are rejecting Trump’s offer, but it’s only a matter of time before they get what they want. After all, Trump and the GOP want the same thing.
