The Photo Nobody Sees
There is a crisis at the border and everybody knows it. Nevertheless, the Biden/Harris Administration has been running a news suppression operation that would make communist China blush. Yet, in spite of their best efforts, images are coming out every day of the total chaos at the border.
This chaos was completely avoidable. It did not exist last year. But it is a mess the Biden/Harris Administration intentionally created. This crisis is a small price to pay for their goal of importing new voters sympathetic to big government socialism and racial identity politics. (See below.)
The photos of these children in their tinfoil wrappings, virtually on top of each other, spreading COVID among them, are heartbreaking. They also scream hypocrisy.
Our government leaders are telling us that if we behave like good little boys and girls, and wear multiple masks to avoid the "impending doom," we might be allowed to have a few people over for July 4th. Thank you, "Dear Leader."
But those same leaders are mocking us with these human COVID petri dishes at the border. What happened to six feet or even three feet of separation? What happened to wearing masks at all times?
As revealing as the photos are, and as much as they pull on our heartstrings, there are plenty of other photos of children and the adults who love them that we are not seeing.
It's the photo of the working-class family in Cincinnati trying to figure out how to save enough money to put their kids through college. It's the photo of a black child in Chicago who wonders if her mother will survive today's trip to the grocery store.
It's the picture of the entrepreneur with three young kids wondering if his family business will ever be profitable again. It's the military wife, whose husband is still in Iraq or Afghanistan, trying to hold it all together back here in the U.S.
It's the photo of a grieving mother or father "separated" from their child, who was murdered by an illegal alien.
There isn't a camera big enough to capture all the Americans born here or who came here legally who have no place to migrate. And the burden of paying for the expected one million-plus migrants who will cross our border this year will fall on their backs!
Where is the compassion for these America taxpayers and their children?
And why stop at one million? Why not two million migrants, as Joe Biden suggested? Why not more?
Ignoring Root Causes
As you may know, I am a Trump-appointed commissioner on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. We held a hearing recently about refugees and the migrant population. Our witnesses, who were goodhearted people, sadly did not demonstrate any concern for hardworking Americans who pay for all this "compassion."
So, I pointed out to them that some estimates suggest several hundred million people, who are legitimate refugees and victims of oppression around the world, would rather live somewhere else than where they currently are. About 150 million would like to come to the United States.
I asked the witnesses if they were president for a day how many migrants would they accept into the U.S. Suddenly, these very forthcoming witnesses were having difficulty coming up with a number.
When I asked them if our real goal should be addressing the root causes of what is driving people out of their home countries -- redoubling our efforts to defeat socialism, communism and radical Islam -- none of them wanted to have that conversation.
Killing King's Dream
Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his life fighting for civil rights in America. His eloquent speech at the Lincoln Memorial should be required reading for every child and policymaker in America, especially our school teachers and college professors.
What they are teaching today – critical race theory – is killing King's dream of a society where we are judged based on the content of our character rather than the color of our skin.
Case in point: A video has emerged from Loudoun County, Virginia. In the video, a teacher shows a student a picture of two women and asks what he sees. The student says, "It's just two people chillin." The teacher asks, "There's nothing more to that picture?" And so it goes until the teacher is harassing the student about the race of each woman.
That's critical race theory. It turns Martin Luther King's legacy and teachings upside down. It is not striving for a racially blind society. It is striving for a society where the only thing you can see is race.
This isn't an isolated incident. This isn't just one bad apple. When parents began organizing to fight back against this radical agenda, teachers and elected officials -- public servants paid by the taxpayers -- secretly plotted to hack, dox and smear them! I am pleased to report that there is now an active recall campaign against six Loudoun County school board members.
I know there are some people who are skeptical of vaccines and don't trust the government and medical elites. We can have that debate. But there is no debate about this: Critical race theory is a poison being injected into the brains of our children that will destroy this country more efficiently than any virus or vaccine developed to fight it.
My friends, you must fight for your local schools! It will be unpleasant. You will be criticized. You may lose friends.
But unless we're willing to sit by and lose the country in one more generation, we must stop what is happening in our public schools.
If you can, I urge you to consider Christian schools, homeschooling, creating pods or coops of like-minded parents who can take turns teaching your children. But we cannot allow this to continue in our public schools that we are all paying for, and where the vast majority of our children are being indoctrinated.
CNN's Alternate Reality
This item doesn't need any commentary, although I could go on for pages. I want you to see what CNN says about biological sex. And just so we're clear, this is from a news report -- not an opinion piece -- about two executive orders just issued by South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.
I'll let the quote stand on its own -- as an indictment of anything else CNN has to say, especially its reporting on the Russia collusion hoax over the past four years. CNN clearly has a problem with basic facts.
"Though the two executive orders signed by Noem do not explicitly mention transgender athletes, they reference the supposed harms of the participation of 'males' in women's athletics -- an echo of the transphobic claim . . . that transgender women are not women. The orders also reference 'biological sex,' a disputed term that refers to the sex as listed on students' original birth certificates.
"It's not possible to know a person's gender identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth."
CNN regularly chants the mantra, "Follow the science." The paragraph above from its "news" report is sheer left-wing, idiotic ideology and a mockery of every fact of biological science.
