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.

Multitasking Renders You Less Productive

Multitasking sends a message to your subconscious that this is how you must proceed to stay competitive and succeed

Published

on

Dividing your attention to complete multiple activities at once can make you less effective at everything you’re doing.

From CEOs to newbie hires, everyone has numerous tasks to manage throughout the course of a day, week, month, and year. The multitude of responsibilities on your plate requires the capacity for self-management, time management, and the effective allocation of your resources. However, don’t confuse legitimate workplace skills with the contemporary, ill-advised phenomenon called multitasking.

A False Promise

Multitasking might appear to be a reliable way to tackle many issues that compete for your time and attention. It seems intuitive that if you can juggle both A and B concurrently, you’re achieving a productivity gain and saving significant time. But the fallacy in that argument is surmising that the human brain can double-up or triple-up on tasks with no loss of attention, focus, or effectiveness.

A plethora of psychological studies have shown that the human brain can only give “sharp attention” in one direction at a time. Seeking to give this level of attention in multiple directions yields a reverberating type of attention allotted to each activity and predictably results in a loss of mental acuity and productivity.

A clear example of multitasking is when you’re driving along the highway and speaking on a smartphone. Even if you switch to the hands-free speaker phone feature, both activities compete for your brain’s vital sharp attention. So you execute neither activity as effectively as you could by undertaking one activity at a time. It’s also prudent to point out that driving while talking on the phone-hands-free or not-contributes to distracted driving and an elevated rate of vehicular accidents.

Multitasking Coexists Best With Routine

Certainly, it’s okay to multitask while completing some repetitive and familiar work activities. You can run a print job while you work with a file on your screen, for example. As long as the printer has adequate toner and the paper feeds through as designed, there is no deficit in multitasking in this manner.

Nevertheless, for whatever task you are attempting to handle, the fact that you are running a print job at the same time is likely to diminish your overall effectiveness.

The loss in mental acuity will be relatively minor, and you might not even be aware of it. The real risk of workplace multitasking, however, is that you never quite retreat to that mental space where you can offer concerted concentration and, hence, your best work. But if you trace your actions over time, you’ll likely see that for the larger tasks you executed effectively, you stopped multitasking and focused on the task at hand.

Sending the Wrong Message

Multitasking sends a message to your subconscious that this is the way you have to proceed to stay competitive and succeed. When multitasking becomes ingrained in your psyche, you’re telling yourself deep down that you can’t make it in real estate any other way. You end up missing the benefits derived from practicing the art of “doing one thing at a time.”

Multitaskers have trouble “seeing the forest for the trees” and often fail to focus on the most critical components of their day-to-day operations, abandoning less palatable tasks because they require creativity, concentration, and analysis.

As an everyday practice, repeated often, multitasking separates those who continually scramble to keep pace from those who rise to the top.

Avoid the Bind

Since we all face multiple priorities on the job, it’s easy to equate managing multiple priorities with multitasking. The larger and more vital the task, the more essential to focus on it intently. Practice doing one thing at a time. When you’ve finished a project or have taken it as far as you can, only then should you switch focus to your second most important task, and so on.

As your day and work unfold, mastering the art of doing one thing at a time is the best way to proceed. You may, however, multitask on issues that represent the routine or familiar and that carry few consequences for lost time on the trail. In general, though, your best strategy for high productivity is to forsake multitasking and its false promise as you handle the multiple priorities that you face.

Culture Jamming, by Kalle Lasn

America has been subverted by corporate agendas and its elected officials bow before corporate power as a condition of their survival in office

Published

on

Here are excerpts from the culture-shaking book, Culture Jamming by Kalle Lasn, published by  William Morrow in 1999, which rings truer now than ever!

A Multitrillion-dollar Brand

America is no longer a country. It’s a multitrillion-dollar brand…. essentially no different from McDonald’s, Marlboro or General Motors. It’s an image “sold” not only to the citizens of the U.S., but to consumers worldwide. The American brand is associated with catch-words such as “democracy;’ “opportunity” and “freedom.” But like cigarettes that are sold as symbols of vitality and youthful rebellion, the American reality is very different from its brand image.

America has been subverted by corporate agendas. Its elected officials bow before corporate power as a condition of their survival in office. A collective sense of powerlessness and disillusionment has set in. A deeply felt sense of betrayal is brewing.

By The People?

American culture is no longer created by the people. Our stories, once passed from one generation to the next by parents, neighbors and teachers, are now told by corporations with “something to sell as well as to tell.” Brands, products, fashions, celebrities, entertainments, the very spectacles that surround the production of culture, are now our culture.

Our role is mostly to listen and watch-and then, based on what we have heard and seen, to buy.

A free, authentic life is not possible in America today. We are being manipulated in the most insidious way. Our emotions, personalities and core values are under siege from media and cultural forces too complex to decode. A continuous product message has woven itself into the very fabric of our existence.

Most North Americans now live designer lives: sleep, eat, sit in car, work, shop, watch TV, sleep again. I doubt there’s more than a handful of free, spontaneous minutes anywhere in that cycle.

Smile Button Culture

The human spirit of prideful contrariness and fierce independence has been oddly tamed. We have evolved into a smile-button culture. We wear the trendiest fashions, drive the best cars industry can produce and project an image of incredible aff1uence-cool people living life to the hilt.

Behind that happy mask is a face so ugly it invariably shocks the hell out of my friends from developing countries who come to visit, expecting the giddy Americana depicted on TV and finding instead a horror show of disconnection and anomie.

Our mass media dispense a kind of Huxleyan “soma.” The most powerful narcotic in the world is the promise of belonging. And belonging is best achieved by conforming to the prescriptions of America™. In this way a perverted sense of cool takes hold of the imaginations of our children. And thus a heavily manipulative corporate ethos drives our culture.

The Facade of Cool

Cool is indispensable, and readily, endlessly dispensed. You can get it on every corner (for the right price), though it’s highly addictive and its effects are short-lived. If you’re here for cool today, you’ll almost certainly be back for more tomorrow.

American cool is a global pandemic. Communities, traditions, cultural heritages, sovereignty, whole histories are being replaced by a barren American monoculture.

Living in Japan during its period of sharpest transition to a western way of life, I was astonished by the speed and force with which the American brand took hold. I saw a culture with thousands of years of tradition behind it vanquished in two generations. Suddenly, high school girls were selling themselves after class for $150 a trick so they’d have cash to buy American jeans and handbags.

The Earth cannot support the lifestyle of the cool hunting American-style consumer. We have sought, bought, spewed and devoured too much, too fast, too brazenly, and now we’re about to pay.

Killing the Planet

Economic “progress” is killing the planet. This did not fully hit home for me until nightmarish environmental stories suddenly appeared on the news: acid rain, dying seals in the North Sea, medical waste washing up on New York beaches, garbage barges turned away from port after port, and the discovery that the milk in American mothers’ breasts had four times the amount of DDT permitted in cow’s milk.

To people like me, for whom time had always seemed like a constant, eternally moving train which people got on and, seventy years later, got off, it was the end of innocence. The premonition of ecocide — planetary death — became real and it terrified me. It still does.
