3 reasons to build the wall despite polls showing it isn’t popular

Published

Why does a constitutional republic work while a true democracy would not? Because the general public in most countries and particularly in the United States form political opinions based on the wrong factors while not spending the time actually researching the facts, opinions, projections, and options. As I’ve said in a previous video about sheep, these four components go into what I call the “FOPO method” to form my own political perspectives. Unfortunately, most Americans either check to see what their preferred political icon of the moment says on a subject or they make a gut reaction without knowing the full implications of what they support.

Depending on what side of a debate the media and each political party is on will determine how much attention is paid to polls. But that attention only goes towards making an argument, whether it’s an argument for a particular piece of legislation, a political stance, or the vote for or against a politician. But when it comes to actual actions made by the federal government, the will of the people is usually ignored. It’s all about public relations, not actual policy making.

We’ve seen in recent days the poll numbers that show Republicans and the President are taking most of the blame for the government shutdown. We’ve also seen most Americans are apparently against building a border wall, thanks in large part to the first poll that shows Americans want the government shutdown ended, not to mention mainstream media’s incessant onslaught of anti-wall propaganda. I could go on for hours about how using the shutdown now is a failure on the part of the Republicans for not tackling the border wall when they had the power to do so, but that’s the past. It’s time to look ahead and figure out how we’re going to get it done now that Democrats are in charge of the House.

One thing is certain: the polls are wrong. It’s not that they’re inaccurate, but the way polls are administered helps determine the outcome. In nearly every case, poll questions are worded in a way to deliver the desired outcome. If the questions were framed differently, the results would be very different. For example, if you asked Americans the following question, I believe most would support building the wall.

“Should America adopt similar security efforts that Israel applied to their southern border six years ago, which decreased illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and terrorist incursions by over 95%?”

What Israel did six years ago was, of course, build a wall. That wall worked. Even the most progressive anti-wall activists in the nation had to acknowledge it did what it was supposed to do.

There are three reasons we shouldn’t simply listen to the polls to determine policy.

  1. The people are often wrong. Most Americans supported invading Iraq. Few can now argue this was a good move. Most Americans were against getting involved in the World Wars. Even fewer can argue that we should have let Germany win either war, which they would have had the United States gotten involved. It’s not that Americans are dumb. It’s that our sentiment is too easily swayed by propaganda and the will of those we idolize.
  2. Even when the people are right, government doesn’t act on it. 82% of Americans support term limits on Capitol Hill. We occasionally get an upstart politicians who tackles it, but when was the last time term limits were seriously discussed on the floor? Oh, right. Never.
  3. Opinions change too quickly. Around a decade ago, gay marriage was opposed by a majority of Americans. In fact, both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were against gay marriage when they ran for president in 2008. The same poll today reveals much different numbers.

We need a steady hand in government, one that does not bounce around from one public sentiment to the next. This is why it behooves the President and Republicans on Capitol Hill to not bend or break over the border wall issue. Is it losing popularity? Yes. They definitely need to do a much better job of selling it to the American people instead of playing the Democrats’ game of rebuking their talking points. They need stronger talking points of their own. Then, they need to get those talking points out to the people through friendly media outlets. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be anywhere near the strategy they’re employing today.

There is only one appropriate resolution: Congress funding the wall properly. Not building the wall shouldn’t even be on the table. Declaring a national emergency to fund the wall will end up wrapping it in so much red tape it’ll never actually happen. This shutdown is extremely unpopular and growing more so every day, but it’s the last opportunity America has to get funding for the wall any time in the next two years. If the President bends or breaks on this now, the border crisis will have no end in sight.

I’m JD Rucker. Thank you for listening.

Two separate illegal aliens with child sexual crime felony convictions caught crossing the border again

Two separate illegal aliens with child sexual crime felony convictions caught crossing the border ag

Thursday was another busy day for border patrol agents. It wasn’t just their standard apprehension and processing of thousands of migrants crossing the border to claim asylum. A handful of convicted criminals were caught trying to secretly cross into the United States, into two child sex offenders.

A 45-year-old Mexican national who had a prior felony conviction for “lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14” in California was captured earlier in the day. Then, a 26-year-old El Salvadoran national who had a prior felony conviction for “child molestation in the first degree” and an active felony warrant for “molestation of a minor” in Washington state was captured with another El Salvadoran national.

Both had been previously deported.

Opinion

Give me one excuse for this. Anyone. Can a single Democrat pushing their doctrine of open borders explain how it’s a good idea to keep border patrol undermanned and under-resourced, block the wall at every turn, and keep laws so weak that of course child rapists want to make their way to a sanctuary city near you.

These aren’t isolated cases.

Every day, we hear of new criminal illegal aliens, previously deported, who are crossing over again to commit heinous crimes like these two child rapists. Why? Because they know leftists will protect, enable, and encourage them.

This is a sickness. No, I’m not talking about the obvious sickness of vile men who find pre-teen children to ruin their lives for the sake of their own sexual kicks. I’m talking about the people on the left who willfully turn a blind eye to the sick crimes of animals like these two.

The saddest part about the left’s embrace of criminal illegal aliens like these two child raping animals is that they will take more offense to me calling them “animals” than to the vile crimes these men committed against children.

“Democrats have controlled the House for nearly 5 months. Besides supporting infanticide, illegal immigrants, and whining about President Trump, can anyone tell me what they have accomplished?” – Ryan Fournier

Final Thoughts

Border patrol is stretched thin by the migrant crisis, which makes it difficult to apprehend these child sexual predators crossing the border. If they caught two by chance on the same night, how many child molesters are crossing unabated?

Illegal alien Billy Chemirmir charged in 12 murders, was never ordered for deportation

Illegal alien Billy Chemirmir charged in 12 murders was never ordered for deportation

It may be more difficult than it should be to deport illegal immigrants in America, but when they are convicted of crimes, it’s a realistic expectation that they should be deported, especially when they’re arrested in a state like Texas. But that wasn’t the case with Billy Chemirmir who was arrested four times without deportation. Now, he’s being charged with a dozen murders.

The 46-year-old Kenyan national had been arrested for DWI twice, criminal trespassing, and domestic assault, yet he was not deported. His last arrest in 2018 was for murder. Now, 11 more charges have been handed to him, all surrounding the murders of elderly women.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told The Daily Caller that an immigration detainer for Chemirmir was filed with Dallas County Jail in March 2018, but that he’s not currently in the agency’s custody.

Opinion

I’m truly at a loss for words on this case. It’s not like he was hiding under a rock, undetected by law enforcement. It’s not like they didn’t know he was an illegal immigrant. And it’s not like this happened in a sanctuary city. This happened in Texas. He was arrested four times. Yet he was still allowed to roam, work, and allegedly commit murder.

It’s important to note that this is not a case of our porous southern border. Records are unclear of how he came to live and work in America in the first place, but if it was another case of visa overstay, then this will be a slightly different case than we’ve seen in recent weeks. He wasn’t a gang member who came over with migrants. This goes to show that those in the country illegally all need to be examined more closely. We have enough issues with citizens committing crimes. We don’t need even more criminals on the streets.

Quote

“This guy should’ve been detected but wasn’t. In our case, they had him just wandering around the apartment for three hours.” – Richard Arnold, Lawyer for a Victim’s Family

Final Thoughts

If we aren’t deporting illegal immigrants who have been arrested four times in Texas, how can we expect any criminal illegal aliens to be deported? The system is broken. We need to rethink everything about immigration.

‘Serial rapist’ DREAMer Carlos Eduardo confesses to Houston area sexual assaults

Serial rapist DREAMer Carlos Eduardo confesses to Houston area sexual assaults

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order by President Obama has a new set of victims as a Houston man has confessed to two rapes and one attempted rape.

Carlos Eduardo, 18, confessed to following women home from a 24-hour gym, then forcing them by gunpoint into his car. He would then drive them to an isolated location and sexually assault them, according to police.

“He would sit in the parking lot and watch them walk to their cars,” said Chief Josh Bruegger from the Pasadena Police Department.

An anonymous tip led police to Eduardo’s conspicuous lime green Ford Mustang. It appeared he was attempting to change the appearance of the vehicle after CCTV video was released with his vehicle visible.

Opinion

One would be hard pressed to find a mainstream media report even mentioning Eduardo’s immigration status. The left is losing the narrative on the border crisis and other elements of the illegal immigration problem, so the last thing they want to lose is the final remnant of positive credibility they have with DACA.

In other words, they need the perceptions of DREAMers to stay clean.

To be fair, the rates of crimes committed by DREAMers is not noticeably higher than crimes committed by American citizens in the same age groups and locations, but that doesn’t change the fact that they’ve increased crime levels by virtue of their presence in America. Currently, there’s nothing that can be done to demonstrate how crime rates can be reduced because DREAMers are at the bottom of the priority list for most opponents of illegal immigration.

And maybe that’s how it should be.

I’d almost be willing to forget about DACA altogether if we could simply stop the flow of illegal immigrants currently entering the country. Almost. People like Eduardo are a stark reminder that not all DREAMers are innocent, worthy contributors to American society.

Quote

“I believe this was the beginning of a serial rapist. We have three cases. Any time you have that, it scares the community, and it should. That’s really why I wanted this to be a priority. I have a wife, I have daughters; this is the last thing you want out there is a serial rapist on the streets.” – Chief Josh Bruegger

Final Thoughts

This is just another angle of the multi-headed monster of illegal immigration. Border security, asylum loopholes, visa overstays, and the lack of a wall are all problems, but let’s not forget DACA still looms over America.
