Roy Moore leads Republicans in Alabama Senate poll

Judge Roy Moore’s political career may not be over, according to a new poll from Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy Inc. The former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice and GOP nominee for the Senate in 2017 leads a field made up of Republican Congressmen and other figures, most of whom have not declared their intention to run for the spot in 2020.

Democrat Doug Jones defeated Moore in the deep red state after scandal tanked the Republican’s campaign. He was accused by multiple women of dating them when they were in their teens. Moore was in his 30s when the alleged incidents took place.

Opinion

There are two perspectives that would support a run by Moore. The one that many will latch onto is the notion that this was a manufactured controversy, one in which the events didn’t actually happen the way they’ve been reported by the press. The other is obtuse by today’s sensibilities, especially in the era of #MeToo, but that isn’t as far-fetched as one might think: Culturally, this was acceptable behavior in 1970s Alabama.

Keep in mind, Moore was not accused of sexual misconduct by any of the girls. He was accused of “dating” them, and relationships of this nature were not uncommon at the time. Personally, I do NOT take this stance. As someone who grew up in that era, I can assure you it was frowned upon even in the 1970s, but it just wasn’t considered completely off limits if the parents and their daughter were amicable to the situation.

Even writing about it freaks me out a bit.

But then I have to remind myself that Moore denies the events and with no corroboration, we have to take his denials seriously. In the era of #MeToo, it’s becoming far too easy for false claims to take down good men.

Quote

“People of Alabama are not fooled by the false and malicious disinformation campaign orchestrated by Democrats and certain Republicans in the last election for US Senate. Politics is becoming increasingly corrupt and our country is suffering.” – Roy Moore

Final Thoughts

It’s way too early to take any polls seriously, but it’s telling that he’s still being encouraged to run despite the odd events of 2017. This may be unpopular to say, but I’m actually rooting for him to take a shot at it.

Border patrol spots drone used to help illegal immigrants breach the border

Border patrol spots drone used to help illegal immigrants breach the border

Human smuggling has gone high tech. At least it can be verified. At this point, it’s likely people have been using drone technology to assist in getting illegal immigrants across the border for a long time. It’s been used for drug trafficking as well, so thinking this is a new occurrence is likely erroneous.

But now we have proof-positive the efforts to get criminal illegal aliens across the border is a sophisticated operation.

Two of those apprehended were known gang members and one was a convicted sex offender, according to the Border Patrol. They now are being held in U.S. jails pending criminal prosecution.

Opinion

An under-reported challenge facing border patrol is the rise of criminal illegal immigrants crossing the border, sometimes not for the first time. We hear all about the groups of dozens or hundreds of migrants crossing the border and seeking to get apprehended so they can claim asylum and be released into the interior, but what about those who aren’t seeking asylum, who don’t want to be caught, and who are likely part of criminal elements?

Every border patrol agent who is tasked with processing paperwork for the migrants is a border patrol agent taken away from the necessary work of apprehending the criminals crossing over. This is why the use of drone technology is so discouraging. Right now, we have to rely on our technological prowess to cover much of the border. With the bad guys also using technology to thwart these efforts, it makes the already-difficult job of patrolling our border even more difficult and dangerous.

The left needs to understand that not everybody crossing over is just seeking a better honest life. Many are crossing the border for drugs, to join gangs, and even specifically to commit acts of violence against Americans. We need border patrol focusing on catching these bad guys, not serving paperwork to people who are unwilling to wait in line and enter the country legally.

Quote

“Approximately two minutes after the object returned back to Mexico for the third time, a group of 10 subjects made an illegal entry into the U.S. in the same area in which the object had been traveling. This is the first known time in recent history that a drone has been utilized as a ‘look-out’ in order to aid in illegal entries in the El Paso Sector.” – Border Patrol Statement

Final Thoughts

With so much time, money, and manpower used by border patrol to apprehend the migrants wanting to be caught, those who don’t want to get caught have the advantage. These are the dangerous elements not seeking asylum. They seek to do harm.

Border patrol nabs Mexican Mafia member ‘La Bestia’ crossing the border illegally

Border patrol nabs Mexican Mafia member La Bestia crossing the border illegally

A 29-year-old Mexican national was apprehended by border patrol trying to illegally cross over into the United States. The man, known as “La Bestia” or “The Beast,” had been previously convicted and deported for Obstruction or Retaliation.

He is a known member of the Mexican Mafia as well as the 18th Street Gang. Border patrol spotting him crossing the border nine miles west of the Calexico port of entry.

Opinion

On the surface, this might seem like minor news. But the left continuously screams that there is no reason for a border wall or increased security at the border. Their claims, led in large part by the politically charged rhetoric of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, are that the way to improve border security is to buff up the ports of entry.

Here’s the obvious problem with that. They’re correct in saying most apprehensions of criminals and smugglers happen at the ports of entry. But that’s not evidence of how the dangerous elements of illegal immigration move. It simply means the ones who are crossing the large swaths of unprotected border are harder to apprehend. Yes, a wall will work. Yes, increased resources and manpower for border security will work. Yes, improved technology will work. In conjunction with one another, these solutions will help to not only catch those who try to cross over illegally but will also dissuade many from even trying.

This is logical, yet the narrative is designed to make the President and the Republicans seem like fearmongers. It isn’t fearmongering when the threats are legitimate. At the border, they most certainly are.

Quote

“The continued vigilance of our agents led to the apprehension of this criminal. This dangerous man is off our streets and no longer a danger to the members of our community.” – Assistant Chief Patrol Agent David S. Kim

Final Thoughts

As long as Democrats and leftist media push the narrative that the threats coming across the border illegally are minimal, they’re going to keep crossing. We have to take the threat seriously. The left must stop hiding behind political agendas.
