The Only Reason Democrats Care About Illegal Immigrants

Democrats undertake major recruitment of illegal immigrants to re-supply their base.

Published

on

Democrats virtue-signal endlessly about the fate of migrants who seek to cross our borders. Don’t fall for the ploy. Consider these questions: Why do 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?

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?

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.

Obama’s Cages, 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?

Clinton’s Initiative, Recast

Bill Clinton signed into law the now-controversial policy that would separate children from their parents, and it was Obama and Biden who vigorously enforced that law. As a result of the policies of his predecessors, Donald Trump inherited a bad situation and made dramatic, 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? There is only one reason why the Left feigns concern for illegals today: 80% or more of the immigrants to this country, if they become part of the voting process, initially vote Democrat. If 80% or more initially voted Republican, the Democrats’ concerns for immigrants would stop on a dime.

Democrats realize that unless they undertake major recruitment 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.

The Country Be Damned

Without hesitation, Democrats will drive a wedge between young and old, rich and poor, black and white, and indeed promulgate any demographic rift that they can 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.

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.

Can You Increase Prosperity By Taxing Success?

Published

on

“You can’t increase prosperity by taxing success.”

~ Calvin Coolidge

 

One of the mantras of Democrats is to make the wealthy pay their fair share. You heard it often on the campaign trail from the plethora of Democrat candidates who ran for president. So it should come as no surprise that one of the most vocal proponents of soaking the rich, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), has offered up legislation for a wealth tax.

The bill, called the Ultra-Millionaire Tax Act, would apply an annual 2% tax on individuals with net worths between $50 million and $1 billion. Individuals worth over $1 billion would pay an annual 3% tax. Senator Warren claims it will generate $3 trillion in revenue over 10 years and that money would be invested in programs such as child care, education, and infrastructure.

On the surface, this may sound like a good idea to the common citizen working a 9 to 5 job. Why not soak the rich and make them pay their fair share? One must ask a counterquestion. What do you consider a fair share?

The top 25% of taxpayers pay 86 percent of total income taxes. The top 10% of taxpayers pay 70 percent. The top 5% pay 59 percent. The top 1% of taxpayers pay 38.5 percent of total income taxes. In contrast, the bottom 50% of taxpayers pay only 3.1 percent of total income taxes. It is a myth that wealthier individuals aren’t paying a fair share.

The next question is how do you enforce this wealth tax? It’s an administrative nightmare. In Warren’s proposed legislation, she allocates an additional $100 billion into the IRS for enforcement and mandates a 30 percent annual audit rate for the agency. That would mean hiring more IRS agents and a third of American households would be audited every year.

On top of that, do you really think wealthy people like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, and Warren Buffett will actually pay that wealth tax? They may be big liberals but also realize they have some high-quality accountants to help avoid paying any more in taxes than necessary. They will find loopholes and off-shore accounts to shelter their wealth.

You may wonder why does this even concern me? Do you think politicians like Elizabeth Warren will stop at those with wealth of $50 million or more? You can already picture a scenario where the revenue this wealth tax brings in will be far less than they anticipate. Thus, they will have to expand the tax to anyone who has wealth of $20 million or more. Then to $10 million or more. Then to $1 million or more. It’s yet another slippery slope to an ever expanding tax.

“Well first of all, tell me: Is there some society you know that doesn’t run on greed? You think Russia doesn’t run on greed? You think China doesn’t run on greed? What is greed? Of course, none of us are greedy, it’s only the other fellow who’s greedy. The world runs on individuals pursuing their separate interests. The great achievements of civilization have not come from government bureaus. Einstein didn’t construct his theory under order from a bureaucrat. Henry Ford didn’t revolutionize the automobile industry that way. In the only cases in which the masses have escaped from the kind of grinding poverty you’re talking about, the only cases in recorded history, are where they have had capitalism and largely free trade. If you want to know where the masses are worse off, worst off, it’s exactly in the kinds of societies that depart from that. So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear, that there is no alternative way so far discovered of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by the free-enterprise system.”

~ Milton Friedman

 

If Elizabeth Warren and her comrades were truly interested in leveling the playing field and making a difference in the lives of people across America they would advocate for limited government and focus on a more robust free-enterprise system. The reality is that’s not what they are seeking.

This legislation is more about pandering to the Democrat base and low-information voters in a continuing concertive effort at fostering class warfare and animosity. By creating division through class and racial strife the Democrats see their path to decades of power. This is all about redistribution of wealth.

You can’t expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong. The entrepreneurs and visionaries create jobs. As businesses grow and expand they create further job opportunities and opportunities for ancillary businesses.

Warren’s legislation is an impractical and arbitrary scheme of leveling. It’s despotic and completely antithetical to our Constitution. In a sane Congress this legislation would find its way into the trash can. Given the current political situation in Washington that seems unlikely. Democrats are pushing forward on every one of their Marxist policies and insanity runs amok.

What is the State of our Union?

… if the so-called President cannot deliver the State of the Union address?

Published

on

If Joe Biden gives a State of the Union address sometime this March, it will be late, based on precedence, but still in accordance with an 87-year tradition. All of which brings up the question: if Joe Biden does not deliver or cannot deliver a State of the Union address, is he truly the president?

In 38 days, he has not held a full press conference. Each of us who frequent Politicrossing and read the articles has known for quite a while that poor old Joe lacks the cognitive capability to handle the job. He is a mere puppet to a cabal of Leftists who want to irrevocably reshape America, and not in a good way.

So, the question arises, if Joe Biden does not deliver a State of the Union address this March, or, let’s say, even in February 2022, given that he lasts long enough, does anyone seriously believe he is the functioning president of the United States?

A President by any Other Name

If he does offer a State of the Union address this March, or next February, and he messes up terribly, as many of us suspect will happen, other than temporarily claiming the title, is he actually our president? If one lacks the capability to address the nation, with both houses of Congress, and the Supreme Court Justices in attendance, who exactly is leading our country? His handlers will claim, “COVID concerns.” Okay, then present to the camera in the East Room of the White House. “No” to that idea?

How long can the mainstream media continue to cover for him? How long can they avoid the issue altogether? If he does somehow manage to deliver the SOTU, how will the libstream media machine spew their propaganda when everyone, from all sides of the political spectrum, witnesses the undeniable elder abuse?

In other countries, Australia for one, Biden is not getting a free pass. “It’s clear to me at the least that U.S. President Joe Biden is struggling with dementia and is clearly not up to the task he’s been sworn in to do,” said Sky News host Cory Bernardi when asked to give his views of Biden’s performance in the early weeks of his administration.

Bernardi added, quite simply, “Never before has the leader of the Free World been so cognitively compromised.” What recognizable journalist or reporter among the mainstream media in the U.S. has said the same? Where are you Lester Holt, David Muir, Norah O’Donnell, Jake Tapper, Anderson Cooper, Brooke Baldwin, Wolf Blitzer, Jim Acosta, Joy Reid, Rachel Maddow, ad infinitum? “Cat got your tongue?”

Is observation of the obvious too much for you to acknowledge?

No Surprise

The Democrats knew well in advance that Biden would not be able to continue for very long at the level required for the job. That never mattered to them. Joe Biden was nothing more than a vehicle for their side to gain power.

Whether or not you object to the way in which the election occurred, with the gross irregularities, the terrible reality is that a mentally unfit man and his unworthy vice president are in office, and other people are calling the shots, be they Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Valerie Jarrett, John Brennan, George Soros, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, or whomever.

The 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution clarifies presidential succession if the president dies, resigns, or is removed from office. It establishes how and when the vice president becomes president. However, the vile Nancy Pelosi, and other plotters on the Left, might not need the 25th Amendment to remove Biden.

It’s likely that he, or his wife, or his greedy family, will do so themselves when it is apparent that his continuing on will be an embarrassment to everyone, most of all themselves.

Waiting in the Wings

Some people speculate that Nancy Pelosi’s true intent in relation to the 25th Amendment is to remove Kamala Harris, before she names a VP, should she ascend to the presidency. There’s plenty in Harris’ past to disqualify her.

Once both Biden and Harris are removed from office, guess who gets to be the president of the United States of America? That’s right: The person who so eagerly tore up President Trump’s brilliant State of the Union address in February of 2020, none other than the vindictive, power-crazed, authoritarian wannabe, Nancy Pelosi.
