Stop the games and just start deporting

Do you remember that time when President Obama announced ICE raids prior to them happening so illegal immigrants could hide? Me neither. How about that time when far-left radicals and mainstream media literally wept over deportations under the Obama administration? Nope, it didn’t happen. But as ICE prepares to raid and deport criminal illegal immigrants, it seems as if the White House is doing everything the left wants other than stopping the raids altogether.

I’m sorry if this offends anyone, but this is absolutely ridiculous. President Obama, for all his shortcomings, had no problem deporting more illegal immigrants than any other president in history. His worst quarterly numbers are on par with the best numbers that have come from ICE since President Trump took office. While I agree there are major problems with illegal immigration that President Trump is trying to handle, there is no reason for his administration to announce raids as warning to the criminal illegal immigrants and to appease the Democrats.

Just raid and deport. There’s no need to apologize. There’s no need to warn anybody.

According to some of those talking to Fox News, this is some sort of 4D Chess in which the politics behind the raid are greater than the need to deport these illegal immigrants, many of whom are dangerous. ALL of them will have been properly adjudicated with removal orders filed. This isn’t going to be a bunch of law enforcement thugs looking for anyone who appears to be Hispanic. This is the righteous and properly coordinated actions of a highly qualified and professional law enforcement agency, ICE.

We need to let them do their job. Instead, we’re playing politics:

Why those ICE raids are being announced in advance

So why are the raids being publicized days in advance?

“It’s unprecedented. But there is a political purpose behind it,” Thomas Kilbride, a retired Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agent and ICE policy adviser, told Fox News. He said the president has tried to get Democrats to come to the table because asylum laws need to change, and this is a way to bargain.

Other experts have underscored that Trump’s announcements are something of a gesture – and not something that the administration was under any legal obligation to do.

“The main point here is that the Trump administration is trying to circumvent some of the blowback from the other side of the aisle. It sends the message that these people have been notified to self-deport and if they fail to do that, this might happen,” said Steve Bucci, homeland security expert at the Heritage Foundation. “It is saying that we aren’t monsters, what we are doing is in accordance with the law and in a reasonable fashion.

“Past administrations didn’t announce raids because they didn’t have to, they just did them.”

Yet the heads-up also means that many may have left the addresses known to DHS in the weeks since the raids were first trumpeted, further hindering their effectiveness.

I’m not buying that the announcement/warning was necessary. It’s not beneficial to ICE. It won’t make Democrats happy. They’re not going to come knocking on the Oval Office door begging to make a deal and change asylum laws to stop the raids from happening. If anything, they’re going to be out in force trying to capture the most heart-wrenching story of little Johnny watching his poor dad get dragged away by ICE agents. And that will be the story they tell. They won’t discuss the crimes committed by the people being deported, nor will they mention anyone harmed by the illegal immigrants themselves. Little Johnny is going to be the story, and it’ll be a much easier story to find now that the White House has told everyone when the raids are taking place.

If one illegal immigrant gets deported, there will be negative press coverage on it. Democrats will literally cry over the “inhumane” treatment. We need to stop trying to appease anyone and let ICE do their jobs unhindered.

Only 35% of Americans oppose ICE raids

Only 36 of Americans oppose ICE raids

Anyone who listens to legacy media outlets or spends enough time on progressive social media sites probably thinks the ICE raids on illegal immigrants with deportation orders are unpopular. “The Squad” rails against them. Progressive pundits scream until they’re nearly in tears. The various echo chambers get hashtags trending about how wrong it is to capture people who have broken the law and been properly adjudicated to be removed from the country.

But a majority of Americans support the raids.

A recent POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows 51% of Americans support the raids, while only 35% oppose them. This number should be shocking considering all the anti-raid propaganda being pushed by the left, but it’s really not. Americans are generally believers in law and order. They’re aware of the generosity of the nation despite attempts to paint us as callous and to promote the narrative that the President is uncaring.

We are also aware that those targeted by ICE aren’t random people of foreign descent despite the progressive talking points used by nearly every legacy media outlet. They were all given an opportunity to demonstrate that they were fleeing oppression that falls into the context of asylum. But the vast majority – around 90% – never even show up to their hearing to make the case. This is because they’ve been told if they can simply claim asylum and then disappear into the interior, nothing will happen to them.

It’s important for these raids to move forward, increase in frequency, and extend indefinitely until the message is sent to countries with millions of people preparing to take the dangerous journey to our southern border. The message must be made clear: If they do not want to go through the legal process to enter and stay in the country, they will be sent back. With that message delivered, much fewer will attempt it.

The greatest asset conservatives have is the truth. We must not allow Democrats and their media allies to convince us their lies are true. Americans are aware of the problem at the southern border. We must keep the pressure up.

Funny how nobody mentioned AOC interned for Ted Kennedy

Funny how nobody mentioned AOC interned for Ted Kennedy

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the Chappaquiddick incident when a drunken Senator Ted Kennedy drove his car off a bridge. He escaped, but his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, drowned. He didn’t report the accident for 12 hours.

Mainstream media has spent the last half-century covering up the tragedy to give the popular Senator from Massachusetts political cover. They’re continuing to do it even today.

Associated Press On Chappaquiddick: 50 Years Ago Today, Kennedy’s Car Did Something

Give the Associated Press credit for media consistency. News outlets have spent the last 50 years attempting to distance Ted Kennedy from Chappaquiddick, and this passive-voice remembrance is … perfect.

As Twitter pal Jeff Dobbs puts it, the real crime is that the car got away with it:

Let’s start this in reverse, as it’s the best way to put this in perspective. It’s not true that Kopechne “drowned.” The coroner never autopsied the body, itself a curious omission when dealing with an unattended death of a healthy young woman. Eyewitness testimony by the person who recovered her body at the scene, as well as the position of the body, strongly suggests she suffocated after spending a significant amount of time exhausting the oxygen in the air bubble of the submerged car.

The continuous downplaying of the tragic events by mainstream media is awful. But there’s another angle that nobody is covering. Even as many Democrats, especially far-left progressives, are starting to finally denounce the Senator for his actions all those decades ago, there seems to be no concern that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chose to intern for the Senator as she began her political career.

Kennedy was a Democratic icon, not because of his accomplishments but because of his name. He let Mary Jo Kopechne die at Chappaquiddick, but that’s been forgiven by everyone, including his former intern Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. How woke.

Conspiracy Theory

Were Obama and Biden at the center of the FISA Russiagate scandal?

Were Obama and Biden at the center of the FISA abuse scandal

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton has been seeking the truth about Russiagate since the release of the Steele Dossier following Donald Trump’s presidential victory. There have been many personalities involved Jim Comey and James Clapper to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC. But two people who haven’t been asked much about it are President Obama and his Vice President, Joe Biden.

One would think something as important as Russian meddling with a United States presidential election would get the attention of the Commander-in-Chief and his right-hand man. Yet, neither have been engaged by mainstream media about the incident, and most importantly how much they knew about the shady dealings their Department of Justice had those pushing the Steele Dossier as reason to approve the FISA warrants into the Trump campaign.

Fitton joined Sean Hannity last night to discuss the matter. They posed questions that need to be asked directly to President Obama and Vice President Biden. Could they have been involved in pushing the Russian hoax to embarrass their successors?
