Democrats Use Illegals as Pawns

There is only one reason why the Left feigns concern for illegals: control

Published

Why do those on the Left feign outrage about foreign interference in our elections but are comfortable allowing non-citizens among us to vote in our elections?

How do thousands of migrants, who travel 100’s or 1000’s of miles along treacherous roads to reach our borders, appear to be well fed, fully hydrated, in excellent spirits, and ready to climb walls? How, exactly, is all of this possible?

Many of these migrants, who apparently have abandoned what is otherwise considered to be impoverished situations, arrive with expensive smart phones, backpacks, walking boots, and a variety of other gear and accoutrements that represent a visible contradiction to their reasons for departing at all. Who is paying for the trek? From where does the support come?

One Huge Facade

Even by liberal news sources, Biden has created the worst mess at our southern border in at least the last decade. Don’t worry; that competent, articulate, astute, endearing leader, Kamala Harris, is on the case…  In the mean time, Democrats virtue-signal endlessly about the fate of migrants who seek to cross our borders.

Don’t fall for the ploy. Instead, consider why so many on the Left raise alarms about unvaccinated children attending our nation’s schools, but are at ease with having unvaccinated immigrants illegally entering the United States?

Politicians on the Left, movie stars, and legions of other virtue-signalers rant about what a terrible place the United States was under Trump. They promised to move out of the country, but they did not. Each and every day, massive waves of people attempted to enter this awful country under Trump …and more so now under the laxity of Biden.

Biden’s Cages

Why do pictures of children in chain-linked compartments, which the media refer to as cages, who sleep on cushions atop a concrete floor, all stem from the Obama – Biden Administration, when Jeh Johnston was the Secretary in charge, but were attributed to the Trump Administration? Why weren’t the pictures more recent than 2014?

Do you surmise that the children who came from terrible conditions are happy to be sleeping in an air-conditioned building, with adequate food, water, bathrooms, and medical attention? In the face of their ability to watch cartoons and play games with one another, do you suppose that their plight is disastrous?

Even at a young age, these children sense that they are in a country that is special. Why does Biden’s renewed use of the cages receive no condemnation from the press?

All the screams about migrant conditions were conveniently ignored from 2009 to 2016 when conditions were worse, the policies were more stringent, more people died during the trek, and more families were separated. Did the ‘woke’ crowd care then? Did the protesters and rioters care then? If not, why not?

Separating Children

It was Bill Clinton who signed into law the controversial policy that separates children from their parents. Then, Obama (and now Biden) sought to vigorously enforce that law. As a result of the policies of his predecessors, Donald Trump inherited a bad situation and made positive steps to find a solution to this decades-long problem.

Did the mainstream media inform you of those realities? Or, are you happy to dwell in the mainstream media bubble, where news is manufactured, slanted, and contorted every day to fit an agenda?

Why such an uproar about immigrants and children in 2017 to 2020, but not from 2009 to 2016, or in 2021?

The One and Only Reason

The only reason why the Left feigns concern for illegals today is that +80% of the immigrants to this country, if they become part of the voting process, initially vote Democrat. If 80% or more voted Republican, the Democrats’ concerns for immigrants would stop on a dime, this minute.

Democrats realize that unless they undertake major recruitment campaigns to re-supply their diminishing ranks and unless they massively cheat, they can’t win presidential elections. They are desperate to constantly import new voters, indoctrinate the young, scare the old, and even impoverish the middle class.

Their aim is to drum up enough fear about the opposition to induce people to vote for their disastrous policies and their socialist politicians.

Without hesitation, Democrats will drive a wedge between young and old, rich and poor, black and white, and create any demographic rift possible to preserve voters.

As huge numbers of African-Americans and Hispanics began to favor Donald Trump, the mainstream media (the promotional arm of the Democrat Party) conjured up more stories about prejudice, racism, and xenophobia all attributed to their opponents.

The Party of Hoaxes

When Democrats, the party hoaxes, cannot keep their hoaxes at the forefront, they turn to another and another. An early hoax during the Trump administration, regarding illegal immigrant invasions, was that there was no crisis at the border.

They loudly proclaimed this, even as Obama’s former Secretary of Health, Jeh Johnson stated that the crisis was real, and even when numerous others saw the magnitude of the crisis firsthand.

Quickly switching gears, the Democrats then gave up that hoax for the next one: ‘People were being mistreated,’ then, ‘Children were sleeping in cages,’ then, ‘People are dying at the hands of detention center administrators.’ On and on it they would babble.

If you fell for such hoaxes, okay. Understood. The relentless drumbeat of the media and their big lies can be compelling. If you fall for more of their hoaxes from this day on, you’re not only everybody’s fool, you’re your own best fool.

Education

Academic Underachievement As a Permanent Condition

Academic achievement occurs through individual effort: One boy and one girl after another rising above

Published

on

On the state and local level, as decisions are made about how and in what form we will educate the nation’s children, an age-old issue remains. The underlying causes of income inequality and civil unrest likely has less to do with media-inflamed coverage and more to do with a lingering issue that few people want to earnestly discuss: educational disparity.

In virtually every U.S. school system, the disparity year after year, decade after decade, and even longer, in mathematics competency, reading proficiency, test scores, honor roll status, and graduation rates, between African American students and other students is disturbing.

A Disturbing Reality

Here in the third decade of the third millennium, with a male African American high school dropout rate at 40% across the U.S., can anyone view the situation optimistically? Any responsible American would understandably be concerned.

As Eric Hanushek, who is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, as well as a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, exclaimed “It’s remarkable.” Following his extensive analysis of the situation, he remarked, “I knew that the gap hadn’t been closing too much, but when I actually looked at the data I was myself surprised.”

In one community after another, and one school system after another, when strenuous efforts to bridge the gap do not bear fruit, invariably someone yells “foul,” as if some grand conspiracy is occurring and a magic wand, yet to be waved, could suddenly redress all. And, as if hard-working, dedicated teachers are not attempting their utmost for each of their students.

An Undesired Path

Consider the school system in Chapel Hill-Carrboro, North Carolina. This locale, deemed, “The southern part of heaven,” by a variety of writers, is among the most progressive in the United States. The teachers and educators here have a vested interest in demonstrating that their school system, beyond all others, can succeed in the vital area of closing achievement gaps between whites and minorities.

Nevertheless, year in and year out the gap remains. So, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education becomes primed to try anything! Another in an endless line of supposed “fixes” was to eliminate the advanced math classes in the middle schools and to lump all non-pre-algebra students together, with similar plans to eliminate other advanced classes such as in language arts.

Just as you cannot easily erect a sound building on quicksand, and you cannot expect to solve a decades-old problem by starting with a shaky foundation. Taking a lowest common denominator approach to developing school curriculum has never consistently worked, anywhere. It frustrates the students and dramatically increases a teacher’s burden – all such students must then be taught at individual learning speeds. Do you know any superhuman teachers? If so, could you afford them?

Face the Real Issues

Permanently closing the academic gap between underachieving students and the rest of the student population requires addressing reality – airing the truth about the disparity – not resorting to politically “correct” psychobabble and curricula finagling for another ten years, and then another ten, and then another.

This disparity encompasses such issues as the number of hours the television is on in given households, family or parental encouragement for completing homework assignments, a regular workspace, and established hours for studying in a quiet environment, among other factors.

Until solid analysis, exploration, and programs that address these issues are undertaken, no amount of wrangling with classes will prove to be the “winning formula.” And, school boards will have no chance of effectively addressing the continuing problem of poor academic performance among student groups.

In Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story The Sign of Four, detective Sherlock Holmes says, “…When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” The schools in U.S. communities routinely exhaust talented teachers with a task that cannot be solved by them, nor is it theirs to solve.

Students Eager to Learn

However improbable to those who wish to pretend otherwise, academic achievement occurs through individual effort: One boy and one girl after another rising above and cracking the books, then coming to class as serious students, eager to learn, and primed to excel. Such achievement is not likely to occur any other way.

Otherwise, expect that income inequality and civil unrest will continue for decades into the 21st century.
