Imagine the Irony!

“Imagine the Irony! The Federal Government suing a State for enforcing the laws the Federal Government refuses to enforce!” Boy, I wish I said that! (It was, instead, a YouTube comment from ‘Mr. Occyc’) The Supreme Court has ruled that Texas Governor Abbott has overstepped his authority… but that decision legally turns on the difference between ‘immigration’ and ‘invasion,’ and if it is the latter Texas should have the right to do the job that the Federal Government not only refuses to do… iit should be allowed to do the job the Federal Government refuses to allow ANYONE to do.

Scott the “process” is CLOSE THE BORDER.

There is no such thing as “illegal immigration.” Immigration is a legal, well-defined process. The people who are coming here illegally are NOT immigrating! If you don’t want to call it an invasion, fine, but it most definitely isn’t immigration!

If I were general of a terrorist force intending to invade America, I would use exactly the same strategy we see unfolding on the Southern border. I would have my soldiers disperse and hide among the unregulated human flow occurring there now. It is invasion by stealth. My soldiers would then reform and reorganize on the other side and begin launching attacks. Bill: You appear to be on the right track. SCOTUS decided a questions of law that wasn’t in question. No one disagrees that regulating immigration into the nation is the purview of the federal government. They did not… Read more »

True but the reaction to Abbott and others bussing the illegal’s to sanctuary cities indicates that the left has not thought this through. If your a Marxist or islamist thug sent to “raise hell in America” would you go after a hard well armed Republican suburb when your already in a soft unarmed sanctuary city in a blue state? Third world radicals with an eat the rich attitude will see rich leftists as fair and easy game. CNN reporters reporting on homelessness, the border and anti-Trump riots have been robbed, beaten up, come back to find their car stolen or… Read more »

I didn’t aver that the American Left imported them. They simply made the invasion easier by creating the conditions for a stealthier invasion.

Many in congress are very much arguing that the American left really is importing them. Both Bannon and Bongino publish articles, documents and emails from people one the left talking openly about the process. It is intentional importation of people the left thinks will vote for them if given the chance, i.e. no enforcement of voter ID laws or no police check amnesty. Often I am not speaking specific to you guys but to the USA in general. I’m not sure how to do a more generic definition that people here don’t take personally. That’s a common and interesting problem… Read more »

I pay little attention to what is being said in Congress (it’s too annoying) and commentators even less. Honestly, is one of the very, very few political bloggers I visit regularly. Between the three Boyz I believe I get a fairly balance view of events. As far as your issues with speaking to [us] guys or finding more generic definitions, just say what you mean and mean what you say in plain language. Failing that, remember, “Right you are if you say you are obscurely.”

“Snapshots and soundbites” – Dan Bongino “Demographics is Destiny” : Joe Scarborough And, to “that they intend us no harm”….just how is that accomplished, Scott? Background checks from impoverished, corrupt or near failing nations? Or even nations which are doing well but have factions bent on doing harm in the US? The former, where they don’t have systems in place to track bad guys, and the latter where they wouldn’t give us the time of day let alone cooperate on background checks of potential bad guys from their country? Bill, what steps were taken by the federal authorities to insure… Read more »

There are quite a few ways to determine a person’s background. Even in Mexico, Guatemala and Nicaragua it’s almost impossible for someone to go through life without creating a trail of their own history. Getting a foreign government to cooperate in researching someone’s background is another matter entirely. Though it’s still not impossible. There are records that the U.S. can access without the cooperation of such a government. IMF records, U.N. Aid records, American aid records, Charitable aid records, NGO records, American intelligence records, friendly powers intelligence records (they might not like us but like one of our allies) Interpol… Read more »

Everyone says “back he goes” but its not that simple. Charter Planes carrying deported illegal immigrants have been refused landing rights in about 20 countries. This is mostly north Africa and Pakistan but I would not be surprised if its happening before the plane takes off in the US central America case. Australia’s had to pay several countries to take Illegal immigrants that no country will accept. When the Australian Labor government finally brought them to Australia and released them; one rapped a woman with in the week. Others are known paedophiles, now on the street. It may bring down… Read more »

I know it’s “not that simple”, Wesley. This is a comment section, not an academic roundtable so it’s needful for me to make some generalizations in order to not extend my already long comments to a length that is unreasonable. It’s a little irritating when someone picks such a generalization and tries to make out like that was the point I was making. If I were to cover every single aspect of the topic in order to preclude people like you from doing that, these comments would be books instead of essays. So I have to wonder, did you completely… Read more »

Just a passing thought. Pay for the razor wire by putting a massive sales tax on EBT transactions. Texas could even endermine the Democrats by making the sales tax only apply to non-essential items such as candy and energy drinks.

The Republic of greater Texas is in 15 science fiction RPG’s and it runs from the Canadian border to the Caribbean and from the western slopes of the Rockies to the eastern slopes of the Appalachian Mountains. The idea is in Science fictions from the 1970’s. In reality since Virginia and Maryland is likely to want to join too, so Washington would be under siege within the month and would, in anarchy, surrender. That’s in a few SF’s too.

The People’s Republic of Maryland would want to join? They are pretty close to CA in my mind.

Yeah, can’t see Maryland joining with Texas about anything under any circumstances. Maybe Ft. Meade and Dover AFB but even that is very, very doubtful. If you go north, or north and east of me you’re in solid, dark blue territory all the way to the Canadian border. I’m at about the last point in the Mid-Atlantic that’s still Red. North of me (the lower Tidewater) and once you hit New England it’s solid blue.

Technically half the aussy conservatives look to the USA but not necessarily the Republicans and another big group wrote the USA off long ago. Some don’t see the two major US parties as real political parties. They are, at best, badly defined coalitions. When I get stuff wrong I’m considering possibilities that people, often libertarian’s and Christian conservatives have been talking about for about 40 years now. Some of those impossible events have come true. I.E. If I has said in 2016 that Trump would have over 50% of the unions and 16% of the black vote by 2023 you… Read more »

Funny, I don’t recall mentioning “Republicans” … I mostly vote Republican but I’m not a Republican. Generally the Republican party and its candidates are nothing more than the lesser of two evils. All too often not a lot less. The fact that a stopped clock is right twice a day or a blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut does not validate the legitimacy of “impossible situations coming true”. The stopped clock is not right all day and the blind squirrel does not find every acorn. Because something may have been right does not mean everything else is right too. This… Read more »

Interesting, one of the Youtube poll analysts I follow, Red Eagle Politics is looking at the possibility that Trump may take Maryland today. As Bill and the boys pointed our years ago, if the black vote flips then safe Democrat cities become Republican again. Some very interesting polls are coming in from the black population nation wide. This analyst was one of the few people that called the 2016 for Trump when everyone else thought Hillary had it.
We have a scientific test of methods and sources in play.

Most do not remember Texas already threw two US federal agencies out of the state. They threw out some ATF people after the Waco mess. The Texas state troopers had already told them the ATF informant was the real gun runner and the Brach Davidians had legal guns. The ATF came back years later but not the same people. The Abbott government threw out the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in the Obama years. I don’t know if they came back. There is a long history of violent stand offs between US federal and state officers. In 1890’s the federal… Read more »

Err boys do your research. There is a legal border crossing point at Eagle pass about 200 yards from where Biden’s bureaucrat, NOT a border agent, wants to cut the wire. The border agents have already publicly refused to remove the wire several times. At one illegal crossing point the legal crossing point is 20 yards straight up on a bridge/ overpass above. These people are crossing literally beside the gate as a political act.

Why are these people not getting visa’s? There are 6 reasons. The US requires police records, medical records, and education records but there’s a catch.  1. Many countries either do not have viable systems of record keeping or.  2. Some countries charge 5000 dollars for the three records. Some times that’s 15000 in total. This is a hidden exit tax.  3. Some countries slate home ‘party political’ or ‘religious’ crimes to people that want to leave; most communist and islamist countries. Some countries destroy all records of known dissidents so they can never legally leave. Russia and China are doing… Read more »

Interesting information. The situation with “stateless” people really shows why the border needs to be secure. In the meantime, the gene is out of the bottle for a lot of people we don’t know what to do with. Oh wait, I forgot the democrats know what to do with them. Election fraud is the only reason I can think of for why the feds would want a wide open border. Unless there’s some other influence peddling racket going on too.

One of the ironies brought up by Bill’s close is not the seceding of Texas but the declaration that federal laws do not apply and the state law enforcement agencies do not need to enforce them. That was effectively what California and other states did with their sanctuary statements. The various cities calling themselves sanctuary were also a lesser example of this, with city police not arresting or not reporting to ICE the detention of, people committing crimes while not legally in the US. Now since there has been clarification out after this episode was recorded we have a better… Read more »
