Biden Transparency on Border Crisis

Next time you hear Biden croak about transparency, remember this video, which had to be taken by Senator Ted Cruz because Biden’s handlers won’t let the press see what their open borders policy is doing to the children their stooge invited from Central America:

The word “censorship” is slated to be deleted from the Newspeak Dictionary. Henceforth, we should say “dignity and respect to The People” instead.

Even Chris Wallace, who went out of his way to get Biden elected, admits that the current administration is less transparent than Trump. Fox News reports:

Award-winning photojournalist John Moore said he was even forced to photograph the crisis from the Mexico side of the U.S.-Mexico border. …

NBC News reported the Biden administration enacted an unofficial “gag order” on Customs and Border Protection agents, limiting what information they share with journalists and restricting media access to migrant facilities.

Regarding Ted Cruz’s foray into journalism,

Cruz and Sen. John Cornyn, both Texas Republicans, led a delegation of senators to Donna, Texas, where migrants have been packed into facilities designed for a much smaller number of people. …

Republican senators on Friday released shocking visuals of migrants and children packed into border facilities as they railed against what they called a border crisis of President Biden’s own creation. Cruz posted images of migrants crammed into pens, almost on top of one another.

About 10% of the children crammed into these pens already have Covid, according to Senator Cruz. Virtually all of them will be released into our country.

AP is doing its part to manage the crisis by telling reporters not to call it a “crisis.”

Opening the Border While Expanding the Welfare State

One thing all reasonable people can agree on is Milton Friedman’s observation that you cannot have both open borders and a welfare state — at least, not for long. The Third World has an infinite capacity to generate more mouths to feed. We taxpayers do not have an infinite capacity to shovel money into the maw of Big Government.

Opening the borders while expanding the welfare state is like playing Russian roulette with all six chambers loaded, except that it is not suicide, but genocide, which Merriam-Webster defines as “the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group.” Democrats are combining open borders with welfare to kill off the American people by washing us away in an unending tsunami of grasping foreigners while collapsing our system of government under mountains of unsustainable debt.

As Jason Riley observes,

Biden’s plans to expand the welfare state are the most ambitious since LBJ’s, though one significant difference is that Democrats today are borrowing money to fund it, and simply crossing their fingers that interest rates don’t rise. Another concern is the left’s determination to sever any connection between work and benefits, something all the more worrisome since it is occurring while destitute foreign nationals with little education are being lured here en masse.

In the past, people have come to America to work. Democrats will change this. Their immigration policy filters out the law abiding in favor of people who sneak into the country on an illegitimate basis. Their ever-expanding welfare state will make low-wage work illogical.

The government used to be run by people who meant the country well. No longer:

The first major piece of immigration legislation, passed in 1882, prohibited entry “to any person unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge,” and a similar stipulation was included in a 1930 executive order signed by President Herbert Hoover. Earlier this month, the Biden administration quietly announced that it would no longer enforce a policy that limited the admission of immigrants who were deemed likely to become overly dependent on government benefits.

Just as a crooked business keeps two sets of books, Democrats have two separate moralities. According to their public morality, political correctness (a.k.a. cultural Marxism, critical race theory), it is the epitome of moral virtue to confiscate from wealthy white people so as to bestow upon poor people with darker skin. According to their actual morality, anything that makes them more powerful is good. Both moralities justify what they are doing to our country.

Biden and his handlers would rather rule ruins than govern a thriving America, where they would risk having to share power with the opposing party.

Vidkun Quisling was as a traitor for allowing the Nazis to occupy his country rather than put up a fight. But you could understand his reasoning. Norway would lose anyway; many Norwegians would be killed. The Nazis only wanted to rule Norway, not collapse Norwegian society into squalid poverty and displace the population. Compared to Biden and his handlers, Quisling was a patriot.

Why Troops Sleep in Parking Garage, Illegal Aliens in Hotels

Now that their job is no longer to promote him into office, some reporters can find nothing better to do than resort to journalism by challenging Biden. One even asked why the regime is spending $86 million to house the massive influx of illegal aliens Biden invited in hotels, where they are given free food, whereas the National Guard troops brought in for the theatrical military occupation of the Capitol had to sleep on the floor of a parking garage, have been exposed to COVID-19 (many came down with it), and have been fed undercooked food laced with metal shavings that sent some to the hospital.

You can guess the response: duckspeak.

At least she didn’t say she would “circle back.”

Louder With Crowder responds to the response:

While it’s lovely that the commander-in-chief “did something” once someone explained what was happening around the block from his new home, it doesn’t answer the question. Illegal immigrants get hotel rooms, no questions asked. American citizens who sign up to defend our country were stuck sleeping in a parking garage because no one asked questions. At least, not until politicians got bad press from it trending. …

A politically cynical mind would think the answer to that question is simple: Democrats care about illegal immigrants.

As for National Guard troops, not so much. They make useful props to show who is charge, but the guys wearing the boots on the ground tend to be deplorable. Rep Steve Cohen (D-TN), who chairs the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties, spelled it out:

“You know, I was thinking, the [National] Guard is 90 some odd percent I believe male, only about 20% of white males voted for Biden. You got to figure that in the Guard which is predominately more conservative — and I see that on my social media and we know it — there’s probably not more than 25% of the people that are there protecting us who voted for [Biden]. The other 75% are in the class that would be the large class of folks who might want to do something.”

“Do something” in this context means turn their guns on the Democrats giving the orders.

Imagine if Psaki had answered the question honestly:

“We love illegal aliens because they will depend on our handouts and therefore vote for us for generations to come. We loathe American soldiers because they believe in the country we are methodically destroying.”

Not even Biden himself would commit such a gaffe.

Rite Aid Apologizes for Denying Illegals COVID Vaccine

Brace yourself for unseemly groveling. Rite Aid confesses to denying free (i.e., paid for by you) ChiCom virus vaccines to not one but two people who are in the country illegally.

Via Fox Business:

The company told FOX Business that these two mistakes were “isolated incidents” and is seeking out opportunities to improve.

Both illegals have now been given their first shot.

Rite Aid is also “conducting a thorough investigation regarding this incident,” the company said.

No doubt heads will roll. Maybe Rite Aid can expiate its sin against political correctness by offering a special discount to illegal aliens.

The company had better stock up on vaccine. On Biden’s invitation, vast numbers of illegal aliens are pouring across the undefended border. According to the National Sheriffs’ Association, up to half of them carry COVID-19.

Wall Street Journal Bans Term “Illegal Immigrant”

The warning bears repeating: when reading the Wall Street Journal, do not venture far from the editorial page, or you will find yourself awash in moonbattery. Currently we are experiencing a crisis at the border, Biden’s unconscionably irresponsible and arguably treasonous invitation to the Third World having produced an unprecedented tsunami of grasping invaders. These numberless illegal immigrants will be referred to using politically correct euphemisms by WSJ, which has banned reporters from using the term “illegal immigrant.”

Via Breitbart, where plain language is still permitted:

[I]n an update its style guide, the Journal states that while it will allow reporters to continue using the term “illegal immigration” to describe the process of illegal aliens arriving and staying in the U.S., it will no longer permit reporters to describe individuals as “illegal” or “illegal immigrant” in an effort to stop “labeling people.”

It follows that they won’t refer to doctors as “doctors.” They won’t refer to Americans as “Americans.” They won’t refer to Democrats as “Democrats.” That would be labeling people.

Instead of “illegal immigrant,” WSJ reporters are supposed to use unwieldy terms like “immigrants who entered the country illegally” or “people lacking permanent legal status.” Political correctness does not facilitate succinct writing.

Even the euphemisms “undocumented immigrants” and “unauthorized immigrants” are now banned by WSJ. Euphemisms are no longer euphemisms once everyone knows what they really mean. That’s why liberals now say “choice” instead of the former euphemism “abortion.”

WSJ is not alone in its campaign to rid the Newspeak Dictionary of words that might lead us astray into thoughtcrime regarding illegal immigrants. For example,

In 2013, as Breitbart News reported at the time, the Associated Press (AP) banned its reporters from using the term “illegal immigrant” and “illegal” to describe illegal aliens.

Most recently, President Joe Biden’s administration has banned the use of the terms “illegal alien” and “assimilation” and has instead blanketed all foreign nationals in the U.S. as “noncitizens” and “undocumented noncitizens.”

If FDR had shown comparable leadership, he would have banned use of the word “Japanese” after Pearl Harbor.

Deletions from the Newspeak Dictionary will find their way into law:

House Democrats filed legislation in January to ban the use of the term “illegal alien” and “alien” in federal law and documents.

The next step is federal criminal prosecution for infractions against the Newspeak Dictionary. Already, you can be fined $250,000 per offense for calling an illegal alien an “illegal alien” in the moonbat dystopia New York City.

Pelosi Blames Border Crisis on Trump and Global Warming

Hermetically sealed within their echo chamber, liberal elitists have no idea that their lies are too absurd to pass the laugh test. It’s not as if the media will ever tell them that they are making fools of themselves. Nancy Pelosi has wandered so far into unwitting self-parody as to blame the crisis Biden’s handlers created at the border on Donald Trump and climate change:

In the past week, there have been eye-opening reports about President Joe Biden’s migrant facilities, including children purportedly going days without showers or sunlight, populations at the detainment centers “akin to jail” at 729%, minors being denied access to communication to family members, and immigration lawyers being denied access to facilities.

Sounds like Democrats should have refrained from egging on the entire Third World to pour across the undefended border, receive the likely amnesty, and climb aboard the welfare gravy train.

Since the situation Democrats have created is terrible, it must be Trump’s fault — despite Trump being the only president in living memory to try to stem the invasion.

“What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border, and they are working to correct that in the children’s interest,” Pelosi told [ABC News’ This Week] host George Stephanopoulos.

Everything will be okay, says Pelosi, now that Biden’s handlers have sent FEMA to the border so that the unaccompanied children being pushed across the border to establish immigration footholds “are cared for as they are transferred into family homes or homes that are safe for them to be.”

Pelosi again passed the blame to the Trump administration by saying, “So this, again, is a transition for what was wrong before to what is right.”

But not everything that goes wrong under Democrat rule can be blamed on past Republican presidents. After they dig down to underlying causes, that which is not caused by white supremacy must be caused by global warming:

“My most recent trip to the Northern Triangle, that would be Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, you saw the impact of the climate change, mind you,” she claimed. “These people were leaving because of the drought. They couldn’t farm and they were seeking other ways to survive.”

If the supposed climate problem is global, it affects everywhere, so what’s the use of migrating?

Maybe the illegal immigrants are masochists and they want to subject themselves to the unusually cold weather we’ve had lately. Last month was the coldest February in 30 years. But I’m forgetting, cold is weather, so it is caused by global warming too. Like I said about the laugh test.

Biden’s handlers have made it clear all along that there would be minimal enforcement of immigration laws with them in charge. Now they are handing out $1,400 “stimulus” checks to illegal aliens. Why wouldn’t the entire Third World show up at the door?

Invading Hordes of Illegal Aliens Pledge Allegiance to Biden

They call it the evil party, not the stupid party. Democrats know what they are doing. We won’t get straight information from the mainstream media regarding the crisis Biden’s handlers created at the border, but Julio Rosas is on the ground to let us know what’s going on:

Numberless intruders have been egged on to pour over the undefended border in open contempt for American sovereignty and law in the expectation that a high percentage of them will make careers of voting for a living. Considering the massive cost of this escalating invasion in terms not only of taxpayer money but of public safety and quality of life, not even Democrats would be irresponsible enough to throw it into overdrive if they didn’t know who the invaders will be voting for.

Madam Speaker, Tear Down This Wall

Rep Lauren Boebert (R-CO) channels Ronaldus Maximus by calling upon Nancy Pelosi and the execrable party she personifies to tear down the wall intended to protect America’s leftist rulers as they systematically destroy our country:

Democrats don’t want to risk repeating the national crisis of an angry citizen breaking in and sitting at Pelosi’s desk. The wall around the Capitol is there because walls work.

That is the same reason Democrats oppose a wall at the border. They don’t want it to work. They want the country overrun with drug smugglers, human traffickers, and numberless hordes of new government dependents. They want the country to be invaded and transformed beyond recognition.

This isn’t just bad policy. It is treason.

Record Number of Kids in Cages at the Border

At least with Biden’s handlers in control, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won’t have to theatrically burst into tears over “kids in cages” at the border. Oh wait — from liberal New York Magazine:

The U.S. Border Patrol is currently holding a record number of unaccompanied migrant children in its facilities, raising concerns about the government’s ability to handle the surge on the southern border.

Turns out inviting the entire Third World to come on in and climb aboard the welfare gravy train results in more kids in cages, not fewer. The people running the government must be too smart and highly educated to have anticipated this.

As of Monday, more than 3,200 children were being housed in Customs and Border Protection facilities, with nearly 1,400 of them reportedly being held beyond the legal three-day limit, according to government documents reviewed by CBS News. These facilities aren’t intended for long-term stays and are meant for adults. The documents also report that close to 170 of these unaccompanied children are younger than 13 years of age.

To treat the limb they severed, Biden’s handlers are applying a Band-Aid left over from the previous administration:

The Biden administration recently reopened a migrant facility intended for minors in Carrizo Springs, Texas. The facility was previously built in 2019 by the Trump administration tenure and can house up to 700 persons.

Maybe AOC will burst into tears again after all:

The lunatic fringe that has been pulling the Democrat Party ever further into crazy land would prefer if invaders of all ages were never taken into custody at all. But considering the large and growing numbers involved, there are limits to how quickly illegal aliens can be seeded throughout the country along with the COVID-19 that some of them carry.

Greyhound Pushes Back on Distributing COVID-Infected Illegal Aliens

Among the more overtly treasonous activities of the Biden’s Handlers Administration is the distribution throughout the country of the hordes of illegal aliens who have been invited to pour in without testing for COVID-19. Greyhound, which has been called upon to provide logistic support for the invasion, is not happy with the situation.

From the Washington Examiner:

U.S. border officials have no plans for personnel on the southern border to administer coronavirus tests on migrants, which could risk the spread of the virus as thousands of families and children are released from federal custody into border communities and travel across the United States.

Small surprise that Arizona hospitals are filling up with coronavirus patients who do not speak English and who will presumably leave it to the natives to pay their medical bills. This problem will not remain limited to border states, as Biden’s handlers seed the untested invaders throughout the country.

At least Greyhound is putting up resistance on behalf of sanity. Via Fox Business:

The president CEO of Greyhound has written to the head of the Department of Homeland Security, calling for the agency to provide proof that any undocumented asylum-seekers boarding its buses after release from DHS be COVID-free. …

The letter came during the same week that more than 100 migrants tested positive for the virus at a Brownsville, Texas, bus station as they prepared to board buses to northern U.S. destinations, according to Border Report.

Greyhound’s David Leach also wants money:

“We simply do not have buses and drivers ready to meet surges in demand without emergency funding,” Leach said. “In order to properly serve immigrants coming into the southern border and traveling to their sponsor destination, Greyhound will be operating one-way moves throughout the country and in order to get the resources back (buses and drivers) to the border to continue operations, Greyhound needs funding assistance to cover the costs of repositioning buses and drivers from other parts of the country to wherever they may be needed.”

Greyhound employs 5,900 people. For the $1.9 trillion Democrats just appropriated in the name of coronavirus relief, you could give each of them $322,033,898.31 to start their own bus company. Something for Democrats to keep in mind for their next blowout spending bill, which will follow soon.

Feds Distribute Migrant Invasion Throughout USA

To call our rulers quislings would be an understatement. So far as I know, Vidkun Quisling did not distribute Nazi occupiers throughout his country at the expense of Norwegian taxpayers. Biden’s handlers, on the other hand, have been doing the equivalent with the invasion force that is conquering and forever transforming the United States to ensure permanent leftist dominance.

HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement tells Breitbart that it has…

…authorized programs to pay transport fees for unaccompanied children (including airline tickets), including escort transport (where necessary by airline or ORR policy) in order to facilitate release of children to approved sponsors.

Rosemary Jenks of NumbersUSA explains what’s going on:

“The administration wants open borders — they want anyone from around the world to come here as fast as they possibly can,” she said. But the resulting rush of migrants is forcing officials to hide the unpopular migration as it arrives at the border.

We can’t have the Third World invasion force concentrated in a single area. It must be disseminated immediately, so that it is not as obvious that we are being conquered — and so that the invasion cannot be reversed.

As for the cost, Homeland “Security” Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is considering diverting money from the border wall to finance transport for the incoming hordes.

Kids in Cages Are Now Children in Shelters

The Democrat Party/liberal media got major mileage out of the kids in cages meme. AOC was even moved to crocodile tears. But now that the White House is in their hands, they aren’t kids in cages anymore. Now they are children in shelters:

Alternatively, the cages can be called facilities:

The cages for kids shelters for children were built under Obama. They will be getting more use than ever, now that Biden has proclaimed to the Third World that amnesty is on the way and that our immigration laws will be laxly enforced. The numberless children who are brought across the border illegally in the coming deluge have to go somewhere. Many do not even belong to the people who bring them across; they are acquired in the belief that they make illegal immigration easier.

Dem Rep Calls for $2,000/mo Free Money for Illegal Aliens

Not even Biden’s wildly excessive $1.9 trillion blowout wasting spree is the final word in Democrat irresponsibility. Neither is canceling student debt. Rep Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) wants to debase American currency toward worthlessness by paying people $2,000 a month for nothing — even if they are in the country illegally:

The crisis will never be over, so long as Democrats are in control. We will segue smoothly from the relatively mild crisis of the ChiCom virus to a far more serious economic collapse.

Democrat demands for ongoing “coronavirus relief” payments explicitly include illegal aliens.

Combine the inducement of $2,000/mo free money with Biden’s open border and the demise of the USA will be swift and certain. Unless these people are even dumber than they seem, that must be the idea.
