Mi Casa, Su Casa

President Biden seems to be a “welcoming” kind of guy.  Especially to folks who want to live in the United States without legal credentials.  While President Obama deported tens of thousands of foreign nationals, and President Trump shut down many immigration scams, Joe Biden has thrown the southern border wide open:  hola, amigos!

Let’s examine some facts that rolled in a few days ago.  The Customs and Border Protection Agency reports 1.1 million “apprehensions” in the first nine months of the federal government’s fiscal year. According to The Washington Post, which is somewhat shockingly covering the story, the last time a million migrants were detained was in 2006, and that was for the ENTIRE year.  Under Biden, apprehensions could reach 1.5 million this fiscal year, which would be a record number by far.

The acting commissioner of border protection, Troy Miller, told the Post: “We are in the hottest part of the summer and we are seeing a high number of distress calls from migrants abandoned in treacherous country by smugglers with no regard for human life.”

Of course, American agents rescue migrants even if they are in Mexico.  They are treated by US medical personnel, as they should be.  You don’t let human beings die.

However, they shouldn’t be in jeopardy in the first place.  But they are because President Biden dismantled the Trump “remain in Mexico” policy, effectively opening the border to anyone who desired asylum, as tens of millions all over the world do.  That enormous mistake has provided incentive to the poor and aggrieved to make the dangerous trek north.

Now, poor people are dying every day. And thousands of others are being horribly assaulted in lawless Mexico.  And what does Biden say?  Nothing.  Does he even understand what’s happening? 

Vice President Harris was put in charge of this humanitarian disaster, so what does she say?  “Don’t come.”  That’s what she said knowing full well her boss has wrecked border security.

What does Speaker Pelosi say?  Nothing. How about the lapdog White House press corps?  Are they peppering Jen Psaki with border questions?  No, they are not.

What a disgrace across the board.  What a colossal dereliction of duty by President Biden.  It’s almost impossible to believe that any president would eliminate a border strategy that was working simply because far left kooks demanded it.

Biden is directly responsible for this horrible situation, just as he’ll be directly responsible for the painful economy which is coming soon to your house.

The truth is this guy in the White House is brutal. Just like the border policy he imposed and now ignores.  Please pray for the suffering migrants.




Wake Me When It’s Over

Where are all these woke people? I can’t find them. I’ve looked and even asked some acquaintances: “are you woke?”

No one will admit it.

I’ve seen a few woke bumper stickers like “No Person is Illegal!” Not many though.  Most of the “Biden for President” stickers are gone. Never saw a slogan for Kamala.  But I have one: “The Border’s That Way, Sucker.”

Sorry, that’s not very woke, is it?

I suspect most progressive people fall into two categories. The first are mercenaries. Like the CNN hosts who are paid to be woke.  If they don’t tow the PC line, they will be separated from lucrative paychecks.  So, they stay up to all hours thinking of ways to be sensitive and inclusive.

The second group of “woke wonks” are folks who follow trendy things. If the crowd wants to obliterate due process, they do too. Although they might not fully understand the concept. More than a few woke individuals don’t know much about history, as the legendary Sam Cooke once sang.

Being woke is a time-consuming hobby. You have to be constantly vigilant, on guard against racist behavior by white folks. You must be easily offended by the un-woke and point out their many, many mistakes.

It’s exhausting.

And then there’s the weather. You can’t just say “it’s a nice day.” Nope. Somewhere a glacier is receding because the guy across the street has a Hummer. I mean, what’s up with that?

When it rains, snows, sleets, or is cloudy, you know the local Mobil station is behind it. Damn those oil drillers!

Disney executives are all woke but I don’t know any of them. I think I saw Robert Iger eating kale in a Beverly Hills restaurant once but I could be wrong.

It was reported last week that Disney announcers in the parks no longer say “ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls.” That’s out despite objections from Minnie and Mickey who are now confused by the new restroom policy.

In fact, all of the Disney characters are on notice: no more Peter Pan, Tiger Lily stuff. That’s cultural appropriation. Right, boys and girls?

Sorry.

As I said, it is exhausting to keep track of all the woke mandates. In fact, I need a nap right now.

Please wake me when the whole thing’s over.




The Mean New Deal

A few months ago, Disney executives held a secret meeting with members of the ABC News program “The View.” Things had become so hateful on the morning program that some Disney board members were loudly complaining.

The message delivered was “knock off the hate, ladies.”

The primary culprit was Joy Behar, a bitter leftist. Another problem was Sunny Hostin, who’s even more to the left of Behar and equally as vicious. The two would routinely gang up on Meghan McCain, Disney’s token non-liberal. Ms. McCain often fired back emotionally. The presentation was about as entertaining as a snake bite. Last week Meghan McCain quit the show.

“The View” always had an edge but its creator, Barbara Walters, maintained a strict civility. Rosie O’Donnell could not abide that but Whoopi Goldberg is not a vicious person and did her best to provide some decorum.

But once Donald Trump began to dominate the discourse, civility collapsed on The View as well as many other TV forums.

For example, late-night comedians have pretty much destroyed themselves as mass-market entertainers. Stephen Colbert was never the talent Jon Stewart is but could once deliver a satirical take that amused. No longer. Colbert is now a venomous left-wing zealot who is impossible to watch unless you live in his blatantly partisan tent.

Same thing with the snarky leftist Seth Myers, a man desperately in need of a funny reboot.

Mean is not humorous or engaging or enlightening. Mean is simply mean, a posture with no socially redeeming value. There is an audience for sadistic, unfair attacks but it’s a pathetically narrow crew. This is why the late-night vitriolic can’t even get three million people to watch them. Johnny Carson got nine million.

There is mean on the right as well but, on television at least, conservative haters are vastly outnumbered. On the internet, the mean new deal is on full display as wretched ‘Cruella’s’ aggressively change lanes on the low road.

It’s all pretty depressing and meaningless, pardon the pun. Our media culture is flat-out nasty, blatantly sadistic, and getting worse.

It’s long past time to call these people out.




Joe Biden, Life in the Slow Lane

As part of reporting on President Biden, we list his “official” White House schedule on the No Spin News every day.  We do this so Americans can understand that old Joe has a very soft day much of the time.

There are days when the President has just one item on the schedule.  Rarely does he have more than two.  It’s the slow lane for Joe, the bunny slope.

This is not unprecedented.  Back in 1857, the 15th president of the United States was a man named James Buchanan from Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Jimmy did not load up on daily events.  In fact, he almost totally ignored the threatened succession of the south, which was kind of a big deal. President Buchanan did not even put Union forces on alert.  When southern troops attacked Fort Sumter, James might have said: “really?”  Clueless doesn’t even begin to cover it.  Abraham Lincoln inherited a colossal mess in 1861.

So my question is – is Joe Biden the ghost of James Buchanan past?  Is he the reincarnation of Emperor Nero, who fiddled while Rome burned?

The answer to that question is maybe.

Here’s one vivid example of tactical avoidance.  Mr. Biden’s speech on violent crime last week was bizarre and disturbing.  He didn’t even mention the defund the police movement.  Or no bail laws.  Or drug gangs who are murdering thousands in cities like Chicago and New York.

Apparently, the President doesn’t see those things as drivers of violent crime. Nope, Mr. Biden says he’ll use the full power of the federal government to crack down on “gun dealers who violate the rules.”

That, of course, will do little to stop the murder rampage in America.  And expanding community programs will not help much either.  The only solution to violent crime is to harshly punish the criminals who are hurting and killing people, as history has shown us.

But Joe Biden and his progressive left cadre will not do that because 40 percent of all murders are committed by African-Americans.  Biden will never even acknowledge that stat much less attempt to confront black criminals or any miscreant for that matter.  His “equity” philosophy forbids a realistic, problem-solving agenda and so tens of thousands of people are getting hurt.

Many consider James Buchanan to be the worst president is history.  I do.  He did nothing to confront the heinous slave situation and the growing rebellion below the Mason-Dixon line.  He was MIA as the nation fell apart.

Will Joe Biden descend to the historical depths of Buchanan?

Could happen.




One Country No Longer

(Jackson, Wyoming)  No masks.  That’s the first thing you notice upon leaving the airport.  Everyone is face-forward.

No homeless.  It’s cold at night in the summer time Rockies and I didn’t see anyone sleeping on the streets. Somehow, shelter is available to all.

Skin color doesn’t seem to be a problem, either.  Lots of different races touring the National Parks.  Rangers say it’s calm on the human-agitation front, the way it should be in the land of the free.

Bears, however, are a different story.  You don’t mess with them out here.

This western enclave is a unique part of America, but so is San Francisco, where thousands of homeless drug addicts now roam the streets assaulting the senses of fellow citizens, looting businesses without restraint, dying in record numbers from overdoses.

The difference between the two American towns is a simple concept.  It’s called the will of the people.

In San Francisco, there is little concern about social order, so citizens have none. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, the symbolic leader of the city, presides over a district that is dangerous. Mrs. Pelosi lives behind a wall.  Others don’t have that luxury.  They are at risk.

Speaker Pelosi is not interested is protecting people – quite the opposite. She’s an abortion zealot who’s been told by the city’s Archbishop not to receive Communion because of her dismal record on the unborn.

She is also a race-provocateur, using her power to divide Americans based on skin color.  This causes unrest.  President Biden is right behind Nancy on abortion and racial division.

The people of San Francisco have elected Pelosi 17 times.  So they deserve the depravity they are getting.  Not all.  But most.

Here in Wyoming, it is unheard of for public school children to be taught that their country is essentially based on evil. No one is tearing down statues.  Few are canceled for stating an opinion.

But in the mega-cities of Néw York and Los Angeles, careers are routinely destroyed by political witch-hunters.  It’s now a macabre sport.  Hollywood is the worst.

In Wyoming, almost every household has firearms. Yet the murder rate is one of the lowest in the country.

In Chicago, gun restrictions are severe. Yet thousands are murdered.  Again, it’s the will of the people.  They elect leaders who blame homicide on society, not actual criminals.

So there is no longer one America.  Now we have fiefdoms like the Middle Ages. King Cuomo in New York has radicalized the state and street violence is surging. Yet according to the polls, most democrats would reelect him.

In western Wyoming, folks don’t even have to lock their doors because dangerous thugs are few as they are quickly punished.  Thus, the bad people migrate to places like San Francisco where they go unpunished – there is no political agenda to protect the innocent.

This is not hard to fathom.  The will of the people dictates what kind of neighborhood they will have, and whether fairness, order, or disorder prevails.

Today, there is little unity in the USA.  We are no longer “one nation under God.”

Many citizens simply do not have the will to make that concept reality.

Do they?
