Thursday, July 29, 2021 -- Biden's Border Scandal, A Really Bad Deal, Targeting The Second Amendment

Biden's Border Scandal
I've been in Washington for a long time.  I've seen a lot of bureaucratic mistakes and more than a few scandals.  But I've never seen anything so suicidal for our country as what Joe Biden is doing right now. 
While the CDC is forcing vaccinated Americans to mask up again, and the big teachers' unions are suggesting our schools might not reopen in the fall, Biden is leaving our southern border wide open. 
Six thousand illegal aliens are pouring across the southern border each and every day!  That alone is a huge scandal.
These migrants are untested.  They're unvaccinated.  Many are refusing to take the COVID vaccines.  And many are infected with COVID.  What a shocker!
Yet, while the Biden Administration is increasingly denying American citizens normal lives, these illegal aliens are being shipped all over the country. (Here, here and here.)  At least 50,000 migrants have been released into the country with no court dates.
Now whistleblowers from the Border Patrol are coming forward. They're reporting major COVID outbreaks in border detention facilities because of the infected migrants.  But Biden operatives ordered Border Patrol agents to keep it secret
We're struggling to recover from the pandemic.  The administration is cracking down again on our freedoms.  Speaker Pelosi is arresting maskless offenders. Meanwhile, Biden's insane open border policies are making everything worse! 
And while Biden is imposing new mandates and demanding vaccine passports, nobody crossing the border has a passport!  We don't even know if they're giving us their real names.  But these illegal immigrants seem to have more freedom than American citizens when it comes to COVID.
The left tried to impeach Donald Trump over a phone call.  If this dereliction of duty and obvious threats to public health and safety aren't enough to impeach Joe Biden, I don't know what is!
A Really Bad Deal
As Americans are increasingly worried about skyrocketing inflation, a hidden tax on wages and savings, the Senate voted last night to advance plans for trillions of dollars of additional spending.  Sadly, 17 Republican senators voted for this
They voted to advance the "small" infrastructure bill – just a mere $1.2 trillion.  The vote also gives Majority Leader Chuck Schumer far more control over the rest of the process. But here's the rub:  The bill hasn't been written yet.  There's no legislative text.  All they have is an agreement on a broad outline. 
And here's the bigger problem: This "small" bill sets the stage for the Democrats' massive $3, $4, $5 trillion reconciliation bill.
Many of these Republican senators are usually good conservatives, but I don't get this strategy.  Whose word are they relying on that there won't be things in the final bill that they won't be able to stop?  Joe Biden? Budget Committee chairman Bernie Sanders?  (What a joke!  That old Soviet-loving socialist wouldn't know a budget if it smacked him in the face!)
I hope they're not relying on Chuck Schumer's word.  He gets up every morning trying to figure out how to brand the GOP as a fascist movement.  So, who is it in the Democrat leadership they trust so much that they surrendered what little leverage they have? 
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was all over the news yesterday touting this incredible victory for President Biden.  I don't remember a single time in the past four years that Senate Democrats gave any major Trump initiative 17 votes. 
Even when people were dying of COVID by the thousands, Speaker Nancy Pelosi repeatedly blocked votes on a COVID relief bill.  Why? Because she didn't want Trump to have a victory before the election.  She sacrificed American families and small businesses in order to advance her own political interests.
If you're cheated by someone in some way, shame on them.  But if you fall for the same trick again, shame on you!
This is the way the GOP operated for decades until Donald Trump came along.  He made "business as usual" uncomfortable for the establishment, as did the late great Rush Limbaugh, who repeatedly held the party's feet to the fire and reminded Republicans what they were supposed to stand for.
We're going to contact these senators and tell them that if left-wing bombs are hidden in this bill, they will be named and shamed.  They won't be allowed to claim they had no idea because they let it happen! 
Here are the Republican senators who voted to open the spending spigot:
Roy Blunt (R-MO)
Richard Burr (R-NC)
Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV)
Bill Cassidy (R-LA)
Susan Collins (R-ME)
Kevin Cramer (R-ND)
Mike Crapo (R-ID)
Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
Chuck Grassley (R-IA)
John Hoeven (R-ND)
Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
Rob Portman (R-OH)
Jim Risch (R-ID)
Mitt Romney (R-UT)
Thom Tillis (R-NC)
Todd Young (R-IN)
Targeting The Second Amendment
The left is totally committed to eviscerating our Second Amendment rights.  Here's the latest example:  The ACLU says the Second Amendment is – wait for it – racist.  In a recent tweet the radical left-wing group declared, "Racism is foundational to the Second Amendment and its inclusion in the Bill of Rights."  
I'm sure that will come as a surprise to many minority Americans who purchased firearms to protect their homes and lives during last year's riots.  But it shouldn't come as a surprise to any conservative. 
Screaming "RACIST!" is the default position of the left.  And they do it because it works.  No decent person wants to be called a racist or be associated with anything remotely racist, so the left eagerly embraces this smear tactic. 
Being pro-life is racist.  The Constitution is racist.  Securing the border is racist.  Tax cuts are racist.  The filibuster is racist.  Math is racist.  America is racist.
This absurd assault on the Second Amendment is just another example of the racist and Marxist critical race theory at work.  It's constant agitation to sow chaos, to divide and conquer.  And it must be defeated if we are to remain one nation under God.
Swalwell's Secrets
Sources in the intelligence community are telling Breitbart News that the Biden Administration is hiding a report that contains explicit details of Rep. Eric Swalwell's relationship with a Chinese communist spy.
As you may recall, Speaker Pelosi refused to remove Swalwell from the House Intelligence Committee even after she was made aware of the fact that he had been compromised.
But intelligence community sources say the evidence against Swalwell is "damning," and they want the report declassified because they are shocked that he still remains on the committee with access to our most vital secrets. 
Perhaps it's time Swalwell's secrets were exposed.
