Border Separation Is About Politics. “The Children” Are Being Used As Pawns

June 20, 2018

The outrage over “the children” being separated from their families at the border is all about politics. This issue is being used as a weapon. The target of the weapon is Trump. It is that simple. The mid-term elections are coming up and the Democrats need a “Hail  Mary Pass”.

This is not Trumps policy. It is the law of the United States. This same thing was going on when Obama was president.

When reporters and politicians start using terms like “concentration camps” when discussing this, I tune them out. They have no credibility. They are attempting to sway opinion by using emotion. I don’t think this tactic is as effective as it once was.

Shocking Testimony: Civil Rights Attorney Asked Obama To Close Migrant “Baby Jails” in 2015, at zerohedge.com. According to his own words Obama wanted these detention centers. Where was the media outrage? I think we know the answer to that.

Four Things The Media Won’t Tell You About The Border Crisis, at thefederalist.com. Excerpt from the article:  “By denouncing Trump’s policy (actually it is a U.S. law) of family separation and demanding that the administration keep families together, the media (along with a large number of lawmakers from both parties) are effectively arguing that families should be released while they await their court hearings or go through the asylum application process. Whether they realize it or not – and no doubt many in the media and the Democratic Party fully realize it – this amounts to a de facto open borders policy….”

Psych Patient Shoots Two At Hospital, Doctor Returns Fire And Stops Shooter, at philly.com. Here is an excerpt from the article, “It was not clear why Silverman, a doctor for nearly 25 years, was armed at the office. Bernice Ho, a spokeswoman for Mercy Fitzgerald, said Thursday it was against hospital policy for anyone other than security guards to carry weapons.”  Yeadon chief of Police Donald Molineux said Silverman, “without a doubt saved lives.”  Thank God Dr. Silverman disobeyed hospital policy and had a weapon. I bet it’s a 50/50 chance the Dr. will get in trouble for breaking the rule, because the anti gun crowd lacks any common sense.

White House ‘Quietly’ Exempts 4.5 Million People In 5 “Territories” From Obamacare, at zerohedge.com. American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Northern Marina Islands, and Virgin Islands were exempted from Obamacare because the cost of health care in these U.S. Territories was rising due to Obamacare.

To Make Elite Schools ‘Fair”, City Will Punish Poor Asians, at economicpolicyjournal.com. The admission process at New York’s specialized High Schools is being challenged by the NAACP in a civil-rights complaint against competitive admissions testing that has been around for 70 Years. The group that will be hurt most will be the growing  poor Asian-American immigrants whose kids do very well on the tests. When will these social engineers understand that people’s abilities can’t be made equal. You can’t produce a photo finish in a race by starting slower runners in front of faster runners, or by making faster runners wear a weighted vest. Can’t the social planners let each individual succeed or fail to whatever degree he chooses to define success or failure? Read the C.S. Lewis quote in my quote section.

The Administration Wants Economic Patriotism From Companies Dodging Taxes, at lasvegassun.com. Here is an excerpt from the article. “The President demanded ‘economic patriotism’ from U.S. companies who use legal means to avoid taxes and regulation through overseas mergers. “I don’t care if it’s legal”, Obama said, “It’s wrong”. The corporate tax rate in the U.S is one of the highest in the world. Of course these companies are going to try to legally pay as little tax as possible just like every other red blooded American does every April 15. The treasury is estimated to lose $17 billion over the next decade if the policy continues. That’s not even $2 billion a year, which is nothing compared to the Feds open market money laundering policy of printing 100’s of billions of dollars and purchasing government debt.

Man Chocked To Death by NYC Police For Selling Illegal Cigarettes, by Liz Klimas, at theblaze.com. and Young Girl Assaulted by Three Cops For Breaking Curfew, at libertypenblog.blogspot.com. The breakdown of the rule of law starts when our politicians and bureaucrats don’t have to comply with the law. As a result citizens are not as willing to comply with orders given by people in positions of authority who are lumped in with the bigger group of political and bureaucratic law breakers. Situations like these result in citizens having less trust in cops, and cops having less trust in citizens. You’ll see more and more of this if Government, laws, and regulations aren’t rolled back. On a side note, shouldn’t the President be in front of the cameras saying these cops “acted stupidly”, like he did when his friend, Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr, was arrested by police (read here)?

General Patton’s Summer of 1944, by Victor Davis Hanson, at victorhanson.com. I’ve always been interested in WWII because my Uncle was in the 82nd Airborne.
