This is one part of a short series regarding Pope Francis’ Christmas Day comments insinuating President Trump and the United States must change our policy on Jerusalem and migrants.
One of the Pope’s complaints directed towards America and other countries is that we’re not doing enough to help the migrants in jeopardy around the world. We can assume he was talking specifically about the refugee crisis sparked by the Syrian War, but there are millions displaced in other regions of the world as well.
On one hand, the Pope is correct. The migrant crises, exacerbated during the Clinton, Bush, and Obama years by poor decisions in DC and around the world, must be dealt with soon. There are millions of people who need help. Does this mean opening up the borders, as the Pope would have us do, and face similar if not worse challenges that many European Union countries are facing today? Absolutely not.
The Pope and others want the United States to take a broader role. We can, but that doesn’t mean letting in more refugees than we already have. It doesn’t make sense to take people who have lived their lives under a very particular set of circumstances, laws, and cultures and displace them into a western society. It’s as much for their sake as it is for ours. Instead, we should be looking at solutions to tackle the problem on two fronts: rebuilding what can be rebuilt and arranging safe permanent or temporary residence in areas that are more similar to their previous circumstances.
This stance will instantly be attacked by those who try to find bigotry or hatred in every solution that’s not open borders. They’ll say my views are based upon a desire to “keep them out of my backyard,” as one annoyed liberal expressed to me through social media recently. That’s not even close to being true. I am a legal immigrant who came to this country as an infant. Many in my family have come in and assimilated into American culture perfectly. They have barbecues, great jobs (two in the U.S. government), pay taxes, and used to watch football until the Chargers left San Diego. I’ve seen the positive side of legal immigration. I’ve lived it.
My family and other legal immigrants went through the proper channels by choice. They wanted to become Americans. They wanted to contribute to American society. They wanted the Chargers to stay in San Diego and actively lobbied for that to happen.
Refugees need, more than anything else, safety and stability. The vast majority did not wake up one morning and decide they wanted to become Americans, Germans, or Australians. They woke up to war and were displaced by it. Many open border proponents, and apparently the Pope, would like for us and other western nations to give these refugees a “good life” with our version of safety and stability. This has been demonstrated time and time again to be a huge mistake that affects the host communities and the refugees themselves. There’s no need to go into the effects in the host communities. You either hear the stories or ignore them. What’s not often considered is the “better life” the refugees are going to be treated to by putting them into our culture.
For some, it’s better. They embrace it. We’ve heard plenty of stories about migrants and refugees who came to our country under duress before assimilating and doing great things in their lives. These are highlighted by the media and rightfully so. However, there are many more who are placed in western cultures and either have a hard time assimilating into it or attempt to assimilate those around them into the culture they’re bringing with them.
The Pope wants help in the form of bringing in more refugees. The real solution is to help nations that are more culturally aligned and that have the potential for infrastructure to support an influx. Nations in the Middle East, east Africa, and southwest Asia are much closer culturally to those affected by the Syrian crisis. Bangladesh is a good destination for Rohingya refugees from Myanmar, but they need a great deal of assistance from the international community. In every situation where refugees are seeking new homes, there are better places to send them than to the United States or other western nations.
We don’t need to add culture shock to the list of challenges refugees will face. They are suffering enough. For the cost incurred in bringing people from around the world and helping them live here, they can be placed in nations closer to their original homes and cultures that will allow them an easier transition. If we and other nations are going to have to pay a cost for the refugees, why not spend the money wisely? Let’s work with designated host nations who are willing to take on more refugees and expand communities to accommodate them in exchange for the money we would have spent bringing them here in the first place.
The other side of the solution is helping them return to their original homes. This poses more of a challenge because it requires direct intervention in nations that may not want our help. Myanmar definitely doesn’t want our help. Syria may or may not, depending on the terms. Any solution requires a willingness by all involved. As sovereign nations, nobody should have the will of the international community imposed on them.
Lastly, this cannot fall only America’s shoulders. Russia and China have the capacity to step up and join an international initiative to properly place refugees in host nations. Other nations can as well. It’s illogical that the only solution being proposed is opening up our borders when the international community has very clear ways to address these issues. The Vatican alone could easily fund permanent housing and temporary aid for hundreds of thousand of refugees in Syria. They could rebuild communities with the help of the nations as well as from those who once lived there. This could be done quickly if efforts were put into working with Bashar al Assad’s regime. Instead, the Pope wants to push the “easy button” and condemn the United States for not doing more.
We can solve the migrant crisis without open borders. It wouldn’t be easy, but in the long run it would present a much more elegant and sustainable solution. The Pope and others aren’t interested in helping if it doesn’t include changing America’s stance. As world leaders play politics, refugees continue to suffer.
Big Pharma’s Five Major Minions that Everyone, Vaxxed or Unvaxxed, Must Oppose
This is not an “anti-vaxxer” article, per se. It’s a call for everyone to wake up to the nefarious motives behind vaccine mandates, booster shots, and condemnation of freedom.
The worst kept secret in world history SHOULD be that the unquenchable push for universal vaccinations against Covid-19 has little if anything to do with healthcare and everything to do with Big Pharma’s influence over the narrative. Unfortunately, that secret has stayed firmly hidden from the vast majority of people because of the five major minions working on behalf of Big Pharma.
What’s even worse is the fact that Big Pharma’s greed is merely a smokescreen to hide an even darker secret. We’ll tackle that later. First, let’s look at the public-facing ringleaders behind the vaccine push, namely Big Pharma. But before we get into their five major minions, it’s important to understand one thing. This is NOT just an article that speaks to the unvaccinated. Even those who believe in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines must be made aware of agenda that’s at play.
Let’s start with some facts. The unvaccinated do NOT spread Covid-19 more rampantly than the vaccinated. Even Anthony Fauci acknowledged the viral load present in vaccinated people is just as high as in the unvaccinated. This fact alone should demolish the vaccine mandates as it demonstrates they have absolutely no effect on the spread of the disease. But wait! There’s definitely more.
This unhinged push to vaccinate everyone defies science. Those with natural immunity may actually have their stronger defenses against Covid-19 hampered by the introduction of the injections which fool the body into creating less-effective antibodies. Moreover, the push to vaccinate young people is completely bonkers. The recovery rate for those under the age of 20 is astronomical. Children neither contract, spread, nor succumb to Covid-19 in a statistically meaningful way. What they DO succumb to more often than Covid-19 are the adverse reactions to the vaccines, particularly boys.
All of this is known and accepted by the medical community, yet most Americans are still following the vaccinate-everybody script. It requires pure cognitive dissonance and an overabundant need for confirmation bias to make doctors and scientists willingly go along with the program. Yet, here we are and that should tell you something.
Before I get to the five major minions of of Big Pharma, I must make the plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Who does Big Pharma control? It starts with the obvious people, the ones who most Americans believe are actually behind this push. Our governments at all levels as well as governments around the world are not working with Big Pharma. They are working for Big Pharma. Some are proactive as direct recipients of cash. Others may oppose Big Pharma in spirit but would never speak out because they know anyone who does has no future in DC.
This may come as a shock to some, but it’s Big Pharma that drives the narrative and sets the agenda for the “experts” at the CDC, FDA, WHO, NIH, NIAID, and even non-medical government organizations.
Most believe it’s the other way around. They think that Big Pharma is beholden to the FDA for approval, but that’s not exactly the case. They need approval for a majority of their projects, but when it comes to the important ones such as the Covid injections, Big Pharma is calling the shots. They have the right people in the right places to push their machinations forward.
That’s not to say that everyone at the FDA is in on it. Big Pharma only needs a handful of friendlies planted in leadership in order to have their big wishes met. We have seen people quitting the FDA in recent weeks for this very reason. The same can be said about the other three- and five-letter agencies. Too many people in leadership have been bribed, bullied, or blackmailed into becoming occasional shills for the various Big Pharma corporations. Some have even been directly planted by Big Pharma. That’s the politics of healthcare and science that drives such things as Covid-19 “vaccines.”
