They want to be the star, so they fightin’ tribal war. -Bob Marley
The Democrats are looking for something to give them traction in the 2018 mid-terms. Support is flagging and there is a degree of demoralization in the base as Trump ascends despite all the “resistance” efforts. (That is fair to say at this point. Not that this is entirely a good thing.) That is why the Democrats are desperately seeking to exploit the border crossing issue which they think plays well for them. It seems the Dems have once and for all, at least it seems like, conceded the Trump Democrats in the Midwest. They think a coalition of new immigrants, many of whom may be illegal, and other folks in the Northeast and West Coast will keep them alive. The goal is to break Arizona and Texas open to reconquista/urban style politics and to introduce tribalism on a big time scale in the Southwest. This might put the national game in play in the future if the Democrat machine can manage to keep California a 1 party state. The Democrats are pushing this country in a dangerous direction right now. And what is sad is that they know it.
I think all of us can agree that children should not be separated from their parents if at all possible. I think most people can also agree that dragging one’s child to the borderlands is not a very good idea, to say the least. (One can apply for US entry at consulates which are all over Mexico.) But it SEEMS like the Dems are just flat out giving up on the idea of the US as its own country. It seems like many people really don’t care. This isn’t about children, it almost never is when children are used by politicians to tug heartstrings, this is about trying to undermine US sovereignty.
It pains us to write in such stark terms. Me gusta el mundo latino. Tengo amigos en este parte del mundo. Me gusta futbol. Me gusta la música salsa, y mariachi, y Tropicalia del Brazil. Y la cultura en países latinos. Pero nosotros no somos personas estupidos en los Estados Unidos. (Most folks anyway.)
Forgive my Spanish es muy limitivo, as one can see. And no I didn’t use Google translate (as should be obvious.) The point is I like Latin America. Many Americans, even many people the Dems might call “deplorables” like Latin America. But in an effort to derail Trump the Democrats are more than willing to go full on tribalist to try to save themselves. Pit one tribe against another and save your crony political skin. This has long been the way in the Democratic Party in the ugly little urban backwaters of this country. Now the Dems (as Obama tried to do) want to pit tribe versus tribe on a national level. They seem to despise the concept of an American identity (one that is not defined by ethnicity by the way but a belief in liberty, free enterprise, and the rule of law). They seem, to protect themselves politically, to be just fine tearing down the progress we’ve made in this country on the racial front. Indeed many in the Democratic Party always resented this progress, and still others may never have seen the progress made, as they are new to the American political game and have only known the Obama era and its racial strife.
The Pelosi types are willing to do whatever they can to save face in the wake of the Trump victory and now consolidation. So what about the country right? Nancy and company gotta keep their jobs.
For the record we are not inclined to give the DHS, or any federal agency any additional power. In fact generally speaking we are for restricting the power of these agencies. However the point of focus here is on the cynical efforts of the Dems to do whatever they can to forward a tribalist political agenda. One that we think is quite destructive.
(From The Federalist)
The ridiculous consequences of passing the Democrats’ hastily written mess are easily demonstrated. Let’s say FBI agents hear about a drug trafficker and murderer in Buffalo, New York. The agents get a warrant to raid the drug trafficker’s house and arrest him. While they do so, they discover the drug trafficker’s minor daughter is home with him. Feinstein’s bill would prohibit the FBI agents, while arresting a drug trafficker, from separating this child from her father.
This is not a farfetched hypothetical. FBI agents are agents of DOJ (a designated agency) and Buffalo is within 100 miles of the border. So long as the daughter is either a U.S. citizen or an alien without permanent status, the FBI agents would be unable to proceed with normal law enforcement activities. The agents would be forced to choose between booking the drug trafficking murderer into jail with his daughter or not booking him into jail at all.
