PASS THE POPCORN, NAHANNI: New York Times Pundit Slams Kamala Harris

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 22:48
By King Kong Bundy, III

Kamala Harris has made a career of consistently running away from her record.

  As San Francisco DA and as California AG, Harris “championed” a law that put the parents of truant kids in jail. But as a candidate for president, she has been caught trying to cover up her record on truancy.

  As San Francisco DA, Harris called decriminalizing prostitution “completely ridiculous.” But earlier this year, Kamala made a complete reversal and said she supports decriminalizing prostitution.

  As San Francisco DA, Harris made INCREASING bail costs a priority. Now she wants to reform bail.

Oh, but there's more!

  As San Francisco DA, Harris supported a policy that turned illegal immigrant minors over to ICE. But now Harris wants to abolish ICE.

  As California AG, Harris jailed thousands of Californians on marijuana charges and was against legalizing marijuana, but now she wants to legalize it.

This brings us to Monday night when Harris said she was open to rapists, terrorists, and murderers voting from prison. Less than 24 hours later, the former prosecutor flip-flopped.

It’s ridiculous that it took Harris any time at all to figure out her position on such a radical idea.

The New York Times’ Alex Burns explained how politically damaging her flip flops have been on CNN this morning:

“[Harris has] felt a lot of pressure in the race to not fully embrace her identity as a prosecutor. And I think we’ve seen over and over in presidential campaigns … when you start trying to revise the way you have presented yourself your entire career, your instincts can be off and it can just get very personally uncomfortable.”

Editor's Note: I'm still struggling with picking my favorite Democrat policy: open borders, reparations, the Green New Deal, "universal health care" (in which You'll get to Keep your Doctor, Part Deux), abolishing ICE, and -- of course -- forgiving all student loan debt.

Never mind that we, as a country, are so brokety-broke that Medicare is going under in seven years.

But Democrats in Congress are focused on impeachment.

Democrats running for President are all trying to outdo each other with "giveaways" (they are giving things away; you will be on the hook).

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: Russian "Collusion’s" Greatest Hits

Tue, 04/23/2019 - 23:05
By Victor Davis Hanson


The Case for Trump, by Victor Davis Hanson
From late 2015 until April 2019, the media, the Left, and the Obama administrative state hierarchy warned us nonstop that candidate, president-elect, and inaugurated President Trump “colluded” with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton, to assemble a suspect cabinet, and to rule in treasonous fashion in the interests of Vladimir Putin. The former head of the CIA and the director of national intelligence were birthed as permanent analysts at MSNBC and CNN to sermonize—with wink-and-nod assurances that their past billets and security clearances substantiated their authority—that the treasonous Trump would likely be impeached, indicted, or quit.

A mostly progressive team of lawyers, with an unlimited budget, no restrictions on time, and with enormous legal powers found all of that to be a lie.

Unable to find Trump likely guilty of either collusion or obstruction of investigating the non-crime of collusion, they instead salted their report with innuendo and rumor of what the enraged Trump was supposedly thinking about, raging about, and talking about among his closest confidants, including the insurrectionary statement of his press secretary who allegedly sinned by exaggerating the extent of FBI rank and file unhappiness over the firing of James Comey.

All that was a long, slow distraction over real culpability on the part of a number of our supposed best and brightest. And here are some of their most absurd moments from the Orwellian hunt for collusion.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper swore under the oath to the House Intelligence Committee that he did not leak the contents of the Steele dossier to the media or disclose to them an intelligence briefing to the newly elected president of the dossier’s contents. When such news accounts were nevertheless reported in the media, a shocked-in-Casablanca Clapper expressed “profound dismay” at such leaks and expressed his regret to President-elect Trump. With furrowed brow and assurance that such unprofessionalism did not come from the “intelligence community,” Clapper elaborated that these unauthorized disclosures were “extremely corrosive and damaging to our national security.”

Later Clapper admitted that he himself had been one of the sources—what James Comey called a “news hook”—of the very “extremely corrosive and damaging” leaks that he had so damned, through passing on information to CNN’s Jake Tapper, et al., Clapper mysteriously was later hired by CNN as a national security analyst.

Fox in the Henhouse

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein replaced Attorney General Jeff Sessions on all oversight of matters relating to “Russian collusion” on the theory that, unlike Sessions, the Obama-era Justice Department official was nonpartisan, not conflicted, and thus could decide whether to appoint a special counsel, and, if so, whom.

Yet Rosenstein himself had himself signed one of the FISA warrant extensions that continued surveillance of former Trump campaign Carter Page, a fact of some importance to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s subsequent investigation. Rosenstein, in fact, appointed Mueller, who was a longtime associate who had worked with him on prior investigations. Rosenstein had also drafted the memo justifying Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, which directly led to Mueller’s appointment.

Rosenstein would then meet with Comey’s replacement, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, allegedly, to discuss the possibility of removing the elected President Trump on grounds under the 25th Amendment that he was mentally unfit. Rosenstein’s angst, apparently, arose because Trump had taken Rosenstein’s own advice to fire Comey, which had in turn prompted McCabe to launch new investigations, which Rosenstein, again apparently, then sort of joined—in theory then to investigate in circular fashion himself?

A Higher Ego

Fired FBI Director James Comey wrote a book called A Higher Loyalty, with the theme that Comey had always put allegiance to “the Truth” over all careerist and partisan concerns.

Yet Comey signed off on a FISA warrant request without apprising the court that the chief evidence for such a writ was paid for by losing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Comey’s own sworn testimony about the dossier to a Senate Judiciary Committee was not consistent with the actual evidence in the dossier presented to the court. Comey also claimed he needed to brief Trump on the dossier because the media was going to publish its contents, when, in fact, it was only Comey’s staged meeting with Trump about the dossier that offered enough official sanction for the dossier to convince Buzzfeed finally to release it.


Unfreedom of the Press, Mark Levin's Devastating New Bestseller
Yet Comey on FBI time and machines wrote memos memorializing his confidential meetings with President Trump, and then leaked seven of them to the media in order to create enough fury to lead to the appointment of a special counsel.

Despite Comey’s denials, four of the seven memos may well have contained some classified information and thus were probably illegally leaked by Comey, who succeeded in prompting the appointment of a special counsel—his longtime friend Robert Mueller. Yet Comey in his December 2018 congressional testimony, admitted under oath over 200 times that he did not know the answer to the questions asked or did not remember.

Yet Comey’s testimony cannot be reconciled with sworn statements of his own deputy Andrew McCabe. Comey’s real message is not about a higher loyalty, but rather that when one does not tell the truth, one must apparently continue not to tell the truth—at least until the edifice of the aggregate untruth collapses by its own weight.

Collusion Delusion

Robert Mueller investigated a supposed crime of Trump-Russian collusion that early on in his investigation was discovered to hinge on the Christopher Steele dossier, which to this day has had none of its contents verified but lots of its assertions proved impossible or inaccurate.

The mandate of the Mueller investigation was to discover which foreign nationals tried to interfere with the 2016 election, with the help of the Trump campaign, in order to warp its outcome. While the contents of the dossier that prompted his investigation were never substantiated (no sane person believes that Alexander Downer’s happenstance meeting with campaign volunteer George Papadopoulos prompted the entire collusion hoax), its author and sources were very much authenticated: foreign national and British subject Christopher Steele, and Russian anonymous sources whom Steele contacted and may have paid for the information that wound up in the dossier.

In other words, the Mueller investigation failed to find any Trump foreign collusion, but knew that its birth was initiated by the efforts of a foreign agent to work with other foreign sources to alter the 2016 election: real collusion created the Mueller investigation that looked in vain for false collusion. If that seems surreal, then perhaps the real purpose of the investigation soon was to sweep up enough innuendo and dirt on the president and to publish such extraneous allegations as some sort of justification for finding no collusion.

The No Stars


The Case for Trump, by Victor Davis Hanson
Robert Mueller had to assemble an independent and unbiased special counsel’s legal team, ostensibly to avoid the partisanship of an all-Republican Department of Justice hierarchy investigating the Republican Trump. But Mueller, a Republican, appointed almost all non-Republican lawyers; among them many donors to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign; among them lawyers of the former Obama Justice Department who had been briefed by Bruce Ohr on the contents of the Steele dossier at a time when Fusion GPS and members of Obama Administration were doing their best to seed the gossip mill among the media; and among them a few lawyers who variously had either represented the Clinton Foundation or former Clinton aides or former Obama Administration officials; and among them Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, who earlier had sent each other hundreds of text messages, many of them expressing not just loathing of the object of their investigation, but also vows to ensure that Trump would not become president.

In the end, the “dream team” and “all stars” spent $34 million and 22 months, and wrote over 400 pages to confirm what was self-evident from the outset of this ill-starred inquest: Donald Trump did not “collude” with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton; Trump did not impede the nonsensical investigation of absurd charges; and the horde of lawyers who found no crimes were frustrated to the point of including anything in their report they could to embarrass Trump—except the proof of collusion for which they were tasked to find.

Legacies

The Mueller fiasco likely will end any talk of any special counsel investigation for a generation. Eventually, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and McCabe, along with others, will feel what it is like to have a federal prosecutor leveraging them, but this time about real, not made-up, crimes.

The liberal television media and their administrative state partisan “experts” likely will not gain back their former audiences, who were duped with two years of fabrications dressed up as “the walls are closing in” psychodramatic news. The hard Left, “Impeach Trump!” Democratic presidential field will no longer have an excuse to avoid explaining to the American people their weird agenda: a fundamental transformation of the country antithetical to the visions of the American Founders and likely on every issue opposed by a majority of Americans. And we the people will learn yet again that our best and brightest just may be among our worst and dumbest.

UNEXPECTEDLY: Medicare and Social Security Circling the Drain

Mon, 04/22/2019 - 23:05
The entitlement crisis, which will impact America's most vulnerable before all others, is headed straight for us like the asteroid from Armageddon. Seven years, at most, is all we have.

Remember the last time Republicans tried to address the looming entitlement crisis? Do you recall how the Democrats responded? Did they propose common-sense reforms? Raising the eligibility ages of recipients? Something, anything to attack the imminent crisis?

Uhm, no. You got it. They aired nonstop commericals of Paul Ryan -- then a key Republican helping George W. Bush try to reform these programs -- pushing Granny off a cliff.

Here's the bottom line. This crisis is entirely on the Democrats' hands.

Not only did they invent this unconstitutional madness (which Article empowers the government to interfere in retirement services and health care? Asking for a friend), but they have literally nuked any any efforts to address the shortfalls.

And, as you may have guessed, Democrats are now offering preferential treatment to illegal aliens over American citizens. But I'm sure they're all doing the jobs Americans won't do.

14 ANGRY DEMOCRATS INDEED: How Could a 400-Page Report About Russian Collusion Fail to Mention Fusion GPS?

Sun, 04/21/2019 - 20:44
Aside from the five critical questions I posed for Robert Mueller yesterday, there is a stunning omission in the Special Counsel report that simply must be highlighted.

To put this omission into perspective, consider that Michael Cohen is mentioned in the report 877 times, Paul Manafort 624 times, Carter Page 31 times and Christopher Steele 24 times.

"Steele reporting" (the Mueller term for the Russian "Dossier") is mentioned a scant nine times, yet it played -- according to former-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe -- a central role in the initiation of FISA surveillance against the Trump campaign.

Underscoring the egregious, partisan nature of the Mueller report is the fact that nowhere does the massive document touch upon the role of Fusion GPS. Instead there is a single, oblique reference to "the firm that produced the Steele reporting":

Before the President’s flight home from the G20 landed, the New York Times published its story about the June 9, 2016 meeting. In addition to the statement from Trump Jr., the Times story also quoted a statement from Corallo on behalf of the President’s legal team suggesting that the meeting might have been a setup by individuals working with the firm that produced the Steele reporting.Somehow, the Mueller team failed to pursue the setup allegations, even though substantial reporting about the curious nature of the meeting had occurred in the summer of 2018 by the likes of Lee Smith (emphases mine):

[Fusion GPS founder Glenn] Simpson also testified that he had no knowledge of the meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and others until it was reported a year later. There is reason to doubt that account.

In fact, the Russian lawyer at the center of the meeting, Natalia Veselnitskaya, was his client.

She has publicly stated that she used talking points developed by Simpson for the Russian government in that discussion... In addition, Simpson has testified that he had dinner with Veselnitskaya the night before the meeting and the night after.Amazingly, the Special Counsel chose not to pursue any angle related to Fusion GPS, going so far as to keep the name of the firm out of the report altogether.

This convenience permitted Mueller and his "14 angry Democrats" to avoid mention of the ultimate source of funding for the "Dossier" -- the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee -- as well as the name of the law firm (Perkins Coie) that acted as the cutout.

The Conservative Treehouse asserts, and it's hard not to disagree, that Mueller may never testify before Congress. Because (as the invaluable Mark Levin has noted) his report is less a legal document than it is a 400-page New York Times op-ed.

The Special Counsel's kid-glove treatment of Fusion GPS makes the partisanship of the report eminently obvious.

5 Key Items Missing From Cub Scout Mueller's Partisan Op-Ed

Sat, 04/20/2019 - 21:52
Everyone knows it. Even Democrats.

The Mueller Report is a joke.

Its omissions are more glaring than its content.

Here are five key elements curiously absent from Robert Mueller's Special Counsel Report.

1. Who leaked the Flynn-Kislyak conversation to the press?
Authorized to pursue any criminal activity arising from his investigation, Mueller somehow overlooked the felony leak of the recorded conversation between Gen. Michael Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak to The New York Times. Why?

2. Why were no Obama-era intel officials interviewed for a report supposedly about Russian interference in the election?
From Susan Rice telling officials concerned about Russian cyberwarfare activities to "stand down" to John Brennan's bizarre interactions with "Five Eyes" allies, Mueller's report is utterly silent (Hat tip: Mark Levin).

3. Why were Russian Lawyer Veselnitskaya's meeting with Fusion GPS before and after the Trump Tower meeting omitted?
According to Senate transcripts, Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya both the day before and the day after her 6/9/16 meeting with Donald Trump, Jr. at Trump Tower.

4. Why no mention of bias and untoward behavior of investigators removed from the Special Counsel?
At least four of Mueller's investigators (Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Kevin Clinesmith, and Sally Moyer) were removed from the Special Counsel due to various untoward and/or possibly illegal activities. Mueller's report never explains why, nor how his team addressed chain of custody or spoliation.

5. How can it be that the "hacking" of the DNC server was never investigated?
With all of the various Russian actors named by Mueller, somehow he and his investigators never got around to the original "hacking" of the DNC. According to James Comey, the Democrat National Committee never allowed federal investigators to physically access their compromised server.

This is curious FBI deference to a political entity that one Donald J. Trump was never afforded.

QOTD: “Note... what isn’t in the report. It makes only passing, bland references to the genesis of so many of the accusations Mr. Mueller probed: the infamous dossier produced by opposition-research firm Fusion GPS and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign. How do you exonerate Mr. Page without delving into the scandalous Moscow deeds of which he was falsely accused? How do you narrate an entire section on the July 2016 Trump Tower meeting without noting that Ms. Veselnitskaya was working alongside Fusion? How do you detail every aspect of the Papadopoulos accusations while avoiding any detail of the curious and suspect ways that those accusations came back to the FBI via Australia’s Alexander Downer?

The report instead mostly reads as a lengthy defense of the FBI—of its shaky claims about how its investigation began, of its far-fetched theories, of its procedures, even of its leadership. One of the more telling sections concerns Mr. Comey’s firing. Mr. Mueller’s team finds it generally beyond the realm of possibility that the FBI director was canned for incompetence or insubordination. It treats everything the FBI or Mr. Comey did as legitimate, even as it treats everything the president did as suspect." --Kimberley A. Strassel

Rudy Giuliani has the #MuellerReport Quote o' the Day

Thu, 04/18/2019 - 23:05
Via The Last Refuge, we just stumbled upon this keeper from one of the President's lawyers. As an aside, a quick rip through legacy media sites demonstrates their utter cluelessness of -- or maybe complicity with -- Spygate. It turns out that MSNBC and CNN are still, at this very moment, greedily gaslighting their poor, deluded viewers. More on that later.
The special counsel has Used a standard of proof that's unheard of. He can't be 'conclusively sure' that the president didn't commit obstruction. Well, that means the President has to prove his innocence. That kind of upends 2,000 years of jurisprudence...

...The overarching principle of obstruction law is it's very, very hard to make an obstruction case when there is no proof there's an underlying crime."Sh**'s gonna get real for these fools very, very soon.

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: Are There Any Limits to Illegal Immigration?

Mon, 04/15/2019 - 23:47
By Victor Davis Hanson

The U.S.-Mexican border is essentially wide open.

Why? Because there is a general expectation in Mexico and Latin America that American immigration law is unenforced. Or it is so bizarre that simple illegal entry almost always ensures temporary legal residence, pending an asylum hearing.

A scheduled asylum hearing, in turn, is seen by border crossers as a mere formality to be ignored. The popular perception on the border, then, is to stick one foot illegally onto U.S. soil, and, presto, win permanent residence for you and any family members who wish to follow.

In an age of 500 sanctuary city and county jurisdictions, few illegal aliens believe they will ever be deported permanently, even if they have been apprehended committing serious crimes. There is also a general perception among would-be illegal entrants that prominent Democrats and progressives welcome their massive influxes as useful and will do their best to ensure illegal immigration continues unabated.

There is also the assumption that the greater the chaos at the border, the less likely Congress will take bipartisan action to end it. After all, 2020 is an election year and progressives are in no mood to hand Trump the semblance of a legislative victory. This fact is also known to would-be border crossers.

Illegal alien families sense that they are vital to progressive agendas of fundamentally transforming the country by importing first-generation, loyal constituents—a sentiment that is slowly replacing the prior idea of mostly young men coming to work off the books. In an increasingly tribal America, they expect on arrival to be recalibrated instantly from Mexican nationals without any experience of America into “Latinos” and “Hispanics” with historical grievances against the majority population of United States, to be remedied by reparatory hiring and admission, and facilitated by ethnic operatives.

Some polls in the past have suggested that a third of Mexico’s population would immigrate to the United States if possible. The percentages of would-be immigrants from Central America are likely to be even higher. In theory, 50 million could cross the border in the next two decades, which poses the question: what are the theoretical limits on illegal immigration?

When would it cease? When 50 million or 60 million or maybe 80 million foreign nationals entered illegally, without meritocratic criteria or much diversity?

Historically massive influxes of migrants from one nation to another are reflections of imbalances in fertility and demography, and radical political, economic, and cultural asymmetries. People vote en masse with their feet to escape violence, oppression and poverty to flee to a different, indeed antithetical, system that promises them greater security, freedom, and economic opportunity.

Think in the past of mainland China versus Hong Kong, East versus West Germany, North versus South Korea, or Europe versus North Africa and the Middle East. Or consider why indigenous residents of Oaxaca would give up their homeland to travel 2,000 miles to a quite foreign country whose traditions, language, culture, history, and values were often antithetical to their own.

Saturation Nowhere in Sight


The Case for Trump, by Victor Davis Hanson
Mass population movements end (or never start) if there is border symmetry, in the fashion that Canadian and American immigrants roughly balance each other out.

The promise that Mexico and Central America in the early 21th century would obtain rough economic parity with the United States has not happened, despite progress there and lower birth rates in the United States. But what has transpired is a radical increase in cartel and gang violence, endemic corruption and general lowering of the quality of life south of the border.

Under such conditions, the logical limits of immigration can be calibrated not so much by whether countries south of the border reach parity with American standards of living, freedom, security, and quality of life. But rather the current issue is whether regions of America, especially the American Southwest become roughly indistinguishable from Latin America and Mexico, and therefore in terms of economic opportunity, safety, and quality of life do not offer that much of an improvement—or at least not such a radical margin of enhancement to justify abandoning one’s homeland.

In such an equation, the more that illegal aliens arrive, swamp social services and tax law enforcement, the more that they create ethnic enclaves that resist rapid assimilation and the more that they sense that their hosts see them most useful as an identity politics constituency, then the more parts of the southwestern United States will seem more like Mexico, and perhaps to the point of eventually diminishing illegal immigration.

No one knows what the saturation point might be of illegal and unassimilated immigration, but influxes are now approximating each month a mid-sized American city. In theory, we may already be nearing a point where many immigrants are starting to see their new homes as not all that different from Mexico—although in general far more expensive.

How Illegal Immigration Changes Us


The Case for Trump, by Victor Davis Hanson
Illegal immigration and its effects on a community are incremental but steady. This past week, two miles from my home, an illegal alien fled the scene of an accident that he had caused, which killed a pregnant Mexican-American and critically injured her 11-year-old daughter. He is still at large. Within a 100-mile radius of central California, at least five citizens were killed by illegal alien gunmen in the last four months. When I go to town to drop off dry cleaning, I rarely hear English spoken. Almost all the stores in the shopping center (where I have gone for 50 years) have Spanish names. Few English signs are apparent or needed.

The formerly rich diverse community of Japanese-, Armenian-, Basque-, Portuguese-, Mexican- and Scandinavian-Americans have long since vanished. I stopped riding a bike in my rural environs four years ago, given the packs of unlicensed and unvaccinated dogs, and the owners indifference to their attacks on passersby.From experience of driving each week across the Central Valley to the California coast, I assume that about one of every 20 cars at rural intersections will run the stop sign. I make the further assumption that if I am hit, the driver of the other car may well flee the scene and has no license, insurance or registration—and has never felt any real need to obtain them.

In my immediate rural environs, there is now the following: 1) an illegal dump of various junk, wrecked cars, and discarded household items; 2) a strange open-air vacant storage lot dotted with porta potties, trailers and assorted junk spread over five acres; 3) a bizarre sort of camp, in which lean-tos, shacks, and tents are hidden among an old persimmon orchard, where no one quite knows how many such structures are hidden inside the mysterious grove; 4) a permanent hanging gardens of Babylon-type of yard sale where a home’s trees and bushes are littered with hanging clothing and flotsam and jetsam, some of them rotting from the recent rains; 5) a former backyard that is now a small goat mart; 6) an unlicensed, ad hoc outdoor barber shop; 7) an unlicensed, ad hoc outdoor daycare center.

I’ll stop there, but the avenue where I have lived for 65 years in terms of the fundamental metrics of civilization—sanitation, single-family zoning, building codes, mosquito abatement, dog licensing and registration, and sanctions for illicit activity—has regressed a half-century or more.

Officials apparently assume that visiting these places can become a lose-lose-lose situation: the miscreant will not comply with citations, the bureaucratic costs of enforcement are not offset by collectable fines, and the touchy subject of illegal immigration may earn either unfavorable press coverage or censure from politically sensitive county and local officials. In other words, we are a world away from Nancy Pelosi’s gated Napa estate, or Dianne Feinstein’s $40 million hilltop Pacific Heights mansion but not from the results of their ideology.

Future Without Law


The Case for Trump, by Victor Davis Hanson
Life down the street is conducted mostly on the premises of rural Mexico, where one does what one pleases or must in terms of water, power, sanitation, business, commerce, leisure, and pets, without audit from authorities.

If one reads either the local or regional papers, it is composed of stories about one of three themes.

One, the disturbing litany of DUIs, gang stabbings and shootings, fatal hit-and-run accidents, police shootings of armed suspects, high-speed chases, robberies, and drug busts.

Two, there are also many human interest inspirational stories of illegal aliens from Mexico who are running successful businesses, whose children are star athletes or students. The subtext is not that they are doing the exceptional things other Americans are not doing, but that they merit special attention and approbation because of their immigrant status and the obstacles they have overcome.

Three, the grievance or victimization meme: the lawsuit against law enforcement, the filing of a bias claim against the county, the firing of an official for some alleged insensitivity, or the injustice of some agency that has curtailed support from, tried to deport, or was somehow biased against, an illegal alien.

The point is, that unlike the past, almost every new story is grounded in some sort of overt ethnic context, and ultimately related to illegal immigration and its effects.

Latino and Hispanic citizens, to the extent that they identify as such, may in the American Southwest be the key to the future of illegal immigration. So far, they have put up with higher taxes, swamped social services, gang activity, hit and run accidents and subpar schools that are the wages of illegal immigration, on the theory of ethnic solidarity and of general sympathy with the underclass of which many now in the middle class were once a part.

But no one wishes to have a neighbor who is an MS-13 member, or schools where non-English speakers hold back collective learning, or to be hit by an unlicensed driver who flees the scene. For successfully assimilated Hispanics there is a growing resentment that they are being used to support political agendas that are not conducive to improving the quality of life in their own backyards.

Translated that means, for example, that California’s high income, sales, and gas taxes, along with sky-high housing, electricity, and gasoline costs, do not make one sympathetic to millions who arrive illegally and without English skills or a high school diploma but with plenty of instant needs for state services.

In sum, either when Mexico resembles California, Texas, Arizona, or New Mexico, or when these border states resemble Mexico, then illegal immigration will likely cease. Conventional wisdom has always postulated that declining birth rates, economic reforms, and globalization south of the border will discourage Mexicans and Central Americans from coming north as rough parity is achieved.

But it may be that as so many have already come north—and they are coming in increasing numbers—and as so few feel a need to assimilate, that an impoverished “north” is no longer a promised land and thus not necessarily a place for which it is worth abandoning one’s homeland.

The other day I noticed for the first time that I have a lot more fear of an oncoming car in rural California than I had of intersections in Libya; a lot more worries about a wild stray dog wandering into my yard than I did while living in Greece; a lot more anxiety of being shot or robbed than I did when visiting the current Middle East; and a lot less hope of being treated promptly in extremis at the local emergency room than I would have expected in Eastern Europe.

In that strange sense, I guess I have some hope that illegal immigration will soon taper off.

QOTD:

So Ilhan Omar says anti-Semitic things every two weeks for two months. Democrats defend her. People quote Omar’s words. Democrats liken it to incitement of violence and the Holocaust. Repulsive.

FOR DISGRUNTLED @CNN AND @MSNBC VIEWERS ONLY: Reeducation Digest #1

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 21:25
As a public service for long-time viewers of CNN and MSNBC who were shocked to discover that the two-year long narrative of Trump-Russia collusion was a total and complete hoax, the following tidbits may help in your red-pill journey:
  1. Did you know that Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan, was a Communist and, according to a former FBI agent, is a convert to Islam?
  2. In court proceedings in the UK, Christopher Steele, the man behind the “Russian Dossier”, has admitted under oath that the entire document was “unverified material" and expressed shock that it was made public by BuzzFeed.
  3. Remember when Rep. Adam Schiff published a response to the “Nunes Memo”, outlining how the DOJ and FBI really didn’t violate any norms, laws or protocols in spying on the Trump campaign (and, later, the administration)? Guess what? Now that the transcripts of DOJ/FBI officials are becoming public, it turns out Schiff’s document is filled with lies and misstatements. Exhibit 1: Schiff’s claim that the “Collusion” probe was opened in July of 2016. This appears to be direct lie, as both The New York Times and Rep. Devin Nunes have confirmed that the secret investigation into Trump began in “late 2015, early 2016”.
  4. Obama-era FBI director James Comey also apparently lied about when the investigation began. Like his disgraced, fired FBI deputy Andrew McCabe, Comey is reported to be the subject of a criminal referral for perjury and leaking of classified information.
Stay tuned for more, my fellow open-minded liberals. The dam is about to break.
