Wednesday, June 30, 2021 -- Trump To The Border, America's Not Happy, The Lying Left

Trump To The Border
President Trump went to the southern border today.  Unlike the vice president, Trump went to the Rio Grande Valley, the epicenter of the illegal immigration crisis.  I can only imagine what he was feeling today. 
For four years, Trump fought tooth and nail to secure our border.  The Democrats, and even some weak Republicans, did everything they could to stop him.  But he kept pushing forward. 
He secured hundreds of miles of the border, not with flimsy fencing, but with a real wall.  He ended policies like catch and release.  He made deals with Mexico and Central American nations requiring their migrants to stay in those countries while we evaluated their asylum claims.  The result was the lowest level of illegal immigration in decades. 
But Joe Biden blew it all up. He immediately stopped construction of the border wall, even though we had already paid for it.  He stopped deporting illegal aliens. 
What's happening at the southern border today is an invasion.  The numbers speak volumes: 


  • In February of 2020, we arrested 36,000 illegal aliens at the southern border.  In February of 2021, we arrested 101,000 illegal aliens.
  • Last March, we arrested 34,000 illegal aliens.  This March, it was 173,000. 
  • Last April, we arrested 17,000 illegal aliens.  This April, it was 178,000. 
  • In May of 2020, we arrested 23,000 illegal aliens. Last month, it was 180,000

Experts say a record two million illegal aliens will cross the border this year. 
It seems that the Biden Administration is trying to change the population of the United States, bringing in hundreds of thousands, even millions, of under-educated, low-skilled people from all over the world.  Did you vote for that? 
The amount of deadly Fentanyl crossing the border is up 300%.  Did you vote for that?
The number of convicted sex offenders crossing the border is up 542%.  Did you vote for that?
Donald Trump was right about the border wall.  President Biden should be impeached for dereliction of duty!
Now we're hoping and praying we can somehow limit the damage to our country until a new Congress is elected in 16 months.
Not Happy
New polling finds that the American people are not happy with the open borders policies of the Biden Administration.  Just consider these results from the latest Harvard/Harris poll


  • 80% of Americans say illegal immigration is a "serious issue."
  • 68% say Biden's policies are encouraging more illegal immigration.
  • 56% reject the idea that "climate change and racism" are "root causes" of illegal immigration.
  • 55% say Biden should have left Trump's policies in place.
  • Only 36% support Biden's current border policies. 

While 80% of Americans believe illegal immigration is a serious problem, the same poll also found that the overwhelming majority of Americans have no idea just how bad the problem is. 
In the previous item, I told you how many illegal aliens are being detained at the border.  But 21% of Americans thought fewer than 10,000 illegal aliens were crossing every month.  Thirty-one percent said fewer than 50,000 a month, while 19% said fewer than 100,000. 
That's 71% of the American people grossly underestimating the severity of the crisis!
My friends, please continue to share these reports.  The media won't acknowledge these facts.  It's up to us to make sure our friends and family members know the truth.
The Left vs. The American Dream
As we have reported, there are two "infrastructure" bills dominating Washington right now.  One is the so-called "moderate compromise."  None of the senators who signed onto this deal have seen the details because the legislation hasn't been written yet.  When it is, they'd better order every staffer to read every page because Democrats always hide "surprises." 
There are reports that the second part of the broader infrastructure package, which will be rammed through using the reconciliation process, involves something called the "HOMES Act."
It's yet another example of how Donald Trump was right about the left's extreme agenda. Trump said last year that Democrats were planning a war on the suburbs.  He was mocked for saying it. 
The HOMES Act essentially puts the federal government in charge of local zoning laws.  So, if your city has an ordinance that restricts public housing or sets a minimum size for lots, the federal government can restrict certain funds to your community if those zoning laws aren't repealed. 
America's suburbs are more integrated than America's inner cities.  People of all races for decades have worked hard and saved so they could move to the suburbs where there are better schools, less crime and a better quality of life.  It is the American Dream. 
There are more blacks and Hispanics living in suburbs today than any time in our history.  That's their dream too.  But it's absolutely clear that Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the radical left want to destroy this dream.
Don't believe me?  Well consider this excerpt from a recent USA Today editorial:
"A house with a white picket fence and a big backyard for a Fourth of July barbecue may be a staple of the American dream, but experts and local politicians say multifamily zoning is key to combating climate change, racial injustice and the nation's growing affordable housing crisis."
Are you willing to give up your home to accommodate the left's radical agenda?
The Lying Left
Conservatives are having fun with Jen Psaki's "Baghdad Bob" impersonations and claims that Republicans are trying to defund the police.  For example, Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted this:
"Democrats now claiming it's Republicans who want to defund the police is like an arsonist showing up at a fire and blaming the firemen, it's like the Chinese blaming Americans for the Wuhan virus, and it's like O.J. saying he's going to help find the real killer."
How insane is this?
If anybody can identify one elected Republican in Congress, a Republican governor or state legislator, a mayor or city councilman who has embraced defunding the police, please send me their name.  I will do everything I can to defeat them in the next election.  But to the best of my knowledge, there are none.
All the cities that have made headlines for defunding their police and are now in the middle of a horrendous crime wave have one thing in common:  They are controlled by Democrats
By the way, new polling shows that only 18% of Americans think we should cut police budgets, while 52% say we should spend more on law enforcement.
Still A Sour Berry
Gwen Berry is unapologetic about her hatred for our national anthem.  In an interview this week, Berry declared: "If you know your history, you know the full song of the National Anthem. The third paragraph speaks to slaves in America, our blood being slain. . .  It's disrespectful and it doesn't speak for black Americans. It's obvious."
The only thing that's "obvious" is that Ms. Berry doesn't know her history, as this column clearly explains.
Berry also told the Washington Post that she is "very uncomfortable" representing the United States, saying:
"For me, it's always been something that's been underlyingly uncomfortable, knowing that I'm rocking this big 'USA' across my chest when everything about America is to demean and to keep Black people at the bottom of the totem pole.  It has always, always, always been something I have been very uncomfortable with."
Sadly, Berry is still on her way to being a member of the U.S. Olympic team. 
Meanwhile, we have learned that she has been sponsored/funded by Color of Change.  It's a far-left, pro-BLM organization that advocates defunding the police.  So, a far-left group is using a potential U.S. Olympian to further its radical agenda by having that athlete embarrass the country on the world stage. 
Berry is also sponsored by the athletic apparel company Puma.  Go to your closet and throw out your Puma (and Nike) shoes, and don't buy any more.
