Dem’s Billionaire $$$ Supplier George Soros Funding Latino Invasions of Our America!?!

llegal Caravans Encouraged by Honduras and Soros

by Daniel John Sobieski  at American Thinker:

Just in time for the midterms, another “spontaneous” migration from Central America began with a bevy of allegedly oppressed and downtrodden Hondurans leading the way.  Pressured by a threat from President Trump to cut aid to Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador if the caravan is not stopped, some moves by these governments have been made.  Yet evidence exists that these migrations are not spontaneous, with both of the governments in question encouraging them as a political and economic safety valve and a source of foreign currency, financed in part by foreign leftists with connections to George Soros.

As Fox News’s Laura Ingraham noticed in a tweet, this is not a walk in a national park, but an expensive and arduous journey:

Who is funding the migrant “caravan”?  Each migrant’s passage can cost as much as $7K each.  Per capita income Honduras is $2.3 K.

It is doubtful that such sums came from the kiddies’ college funds.  Evidence of Soros funding of an earlier “spontaneous” migration have been found among the tentacles of support that flow from his Open Society group coffers:

Leftist billionaire George Soros is funding the well-organized anti-Trump migrant caravan invasion from Central America that has been hitting the United States-Mexico border in defiance of immigration enforcement.

Several major ultra-liberal foundations and corporations have supported the asylum-seeking migrant caravans, and Soros’ funding has been tied to several groups that have spearheaded the “refugee” invasion coalition – also dubbed “the Soros Express.”

“The caravan is organized by a group called Pueblo Sin Fronteras, [b]ut the effort is supported by the coalition CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, which includes Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLIN), the American Immigration Council (AIC), the Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services (RICELS) and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) – thus the acronym CARA,” WND reported.  “At least three of the four groups are funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.”

The hands of the Honduran government are not clean in these efforts.  Among the alleged asylum-seekers parked on the U.S. border is a contingent of Hondurans, allegedly fleeing persecution, poverty, crime, and oppression.  If that is the case, why is the Honduran government helping them, driving them northward under orders given to the Honduran ambassador, who is helping and escorting them?

Leaders of a caravan of Central American migrants traveling toward the United States through Mexico have repeatedly accused the Honduran government of corruption and with failing to address the poverty, crime and economic conditions forcing families to flee by the thousands.

So it shocked some observers when the Honduran ambassador joined the migrants protesting outside the Honduran embassy in Mexico City on Wednesday, and then accepted their invitation to walk 9 miles to a migrant shelter.

“I have been ordered by my government to support the Honduran migrants traveling with the caravan.  There are about 200 Hondurans who we will help out with paperwork and whatever is necessary,” Alden Rivera Montes, the Honduran ambassador to Mexico, told El Universal.

Ordered by my government?  Why is the country whose oppression they are allegedly fleeing helping them leave?  The answer is remittances, the money sent back home by so-called “migrants.”  Asylum is in large part a colossal scam designed to provide Latin American countries with a political and economic safety valve and a cash cow of foreign exchange.  In 2017, remittances sent back to Honduras totaled $4.33 billion and make up a significant part of the Honduran economy:

Within the span of a few short decades, migrants have become an essential engine of economic support for Honduras. Remittances comprised 17 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) in 2011, according to World Bank estimates, the second largest share of any country in Latin America or the Caribbean.  As such, Honduran emigrants have tremendous significance for the country’s economy and for the sustenance of many otherwise impoverished communities and families.

Talk about a trade imbalance.  We import alleged asylum-seekers and other illegal aliens, and they send home billions sucked out of a benevolent U.S. government and economy.  We have an economy that has some 7.3 million jobs going unfilled because of a shortage of skilled workers.  Judging from photos of the latest caravan, one would suggest a paucity of welders, pipefitters, electricians, and long-haul truck-drivers.

Inner-city blacks have long asked which country they get to go to to escape violence and poverty.  Although President Trump is succeeding in fighting crime and increasing job opportunities in our urban areas, much remains to be done.  We do not need to be importing low-wage and low-skilled competitors to American citizens to drive down poor workers’ wages.  Inner-city residents have long asked, where’s our sanctuary?

Unlike the children of Central America, arriving en masse, the children of Chicago, facing conditions every bit as horrible, have no border to cross to seek asylum or refuge[.] …

“Do something for our children,” said one of the protesters in a video posted at the blog Rebel Pundit. “Have the same love for these young people like you got for the ones across the border, and you want to save them.”  …

A woman, identified only as Elaine, explained the plight of inner-city Baltimore residents on Laura Ingraham’s radio show: “My children cannot play outside. I cannot take my trash out without locking the door – it’s awful.  Who is going to give us anything?  Where can I get asylum?  Where can I get refugee status?”

Where, indeed?  Perhaps this side of a border wall Democrats oppose in favor of sanctuary cities and Medicare for illegal aliens.  If any of the alleged asylum-seekers want to learn a trade – how about a crash course in border wall construction?  Build it, and they won’t come.

Gopherland DFL Staffer Threatens Beheading Republicans after November 6 Election

POLITICAL VIOLENCE COMES TO MINNESOTA

by  John Hinderaker at  PowerLine:

The good news first: no one has yet been stabbed, shot or guillotined. Although the idea has been raised:

A Minnesota DFL staffer has been suspended from his job after suggesting in a social media post that Republicans face beheading after the Nov. 6 election.

In response to a Facebook post that listed Nov. 6 as the day to “take back your country,” DFL deputy communications director William Davis wrote “11.7-bring them to the guillotines.”

The suspension is for one week.

In an earlier statement, DFL executive director Corey Day said the comment was an inside joke among former co-workers.

Ha ha. Those Democrats are hilarious. Next, the inevitable:

Republicans seized on the comment….

Any time you see “Republicans seized,” you know you are reading an article by a Democratic Party reporter.

Republicans are right to be concerned. Within the last week, two Republican candidates for the legislature have been assaulted for political reasons. The first was Representative Sarah Anderson:

Rep. Sarah Anderson was heading out for a day of campaigning Sunday when she saw a man damaging campaign signs near her Plymouth home.

She saw him kicking at her campaign sign — then others.

Parking her car, Anderson confronted the man.

That may have been a mistake.

Anderson tried unsuccessfully to videotape the encounter as the man backed her into the street, swearing.

“And he charged at me again, and he said, ‘Go kill yourself,’ and I end up stepping here and there’s traffic coming.”

That’s when Anderson got back in her car and saw the man walking on foot toward a gas station.

She drove to the station and captured a cellphone image of the man charging her — again. He tried to stop her from leaving, punching her in the arm.

The man described himself as an anarchist. Theoretically, anarchists should be at least as hostile to Democrats as to Republicans, but you know that isn’t how it works.

The second is Shane Mekeland:

A Republican candidate for the Minnesota House said Monday that he is recovering after suffering a concussion from an attack at a restaurant in St. George Township a few days earlier.

Shane Mekeland is running for the House in District 15B, an open seat that includes parts of Benton and Sherburne County. He said that last Friday night, he was “blindsided” by an assailant as he spoke to patrons at a bar and restaurant he wouldn’t identify.

Benton County Sheriff Troy Heck confirmed Monday that his office is investigating the alleged assault, which Mekeland reported took place between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday.

Once again, the attack appears to be politically motivated:

Mekeland said the man gave no immediate indication of political leanings but that remarks the man made as he attacked Mekeland suggested a political motivation.

Similar incidents are taking place across the country. It isn’t just Antifa brownshirts in Portland and New York; low-level political violence by the Left is being mainstreamed. The problem with low-level violence is that it can rapidly escalate. So far, due to the miracles of modern science, no Republican politicians have been murdered by Democrats. Let’s hope that is still true on November 7.

A Note from My Congressman, Erik Paulsen

Dear Friend,

I’ve got some great news. The historic tax reform we passed last year is doing even better than expected.

According to a new Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) update, wages and salaries are up for families across Minnesota and the nation. This has lead to increased government revenues and a smaller deficit than was originally projected. In short, the tax cuts are working.

Minnesota has some of the lowest unemployment in the nation and wages and salaries are rising. And the economy is growing.

But my opponent Dean Phillips would raise our taxes. That means less money for families and it would hurt our economy.  If Phillips win, he’ll support the Pelosi’s big government, big spending, higher tax agenda. And we can’t afford that.

I hope I can count on your support these last few weeks.  With your help, we can continue to ensure our nation is on the right path.  I was proud to support tax cuts for hard working families. If Dean Phillips wins, we all lose.

With your support, be it a donation to our campaign or by getting involved, we will be victorious in November.

Thank you,

Erik Paulsen

Dear Friends…..Never since the Civil War has our America been challenged so by such evil sources….the harpy gangs and Adam Schiffs of today’s fascistic national Democrat Party.  And then there’s that lying  Pocahantas of Massachusetts and Crooked Hillary,  our nation’s Queen of Evil for forty years.

It shouldn’t be surprising to any of us more elderly Americans who still well remember our America when its citizenry taught and practiced the principles of their JudeoChristianity.

Today our harpies, our lying Pocahantas, that Hillary, the Left of our nation  itself no longer cherishes, teaches, preaches humanity’s needs and deeds and rules of decency and seeking TRUTH!

This past Kavanaugh crisis contrived, stirred, attacked by  university Leftist trained harpies, liars, and CNN fascists and reporters of  New York Times, is becoming a terror against TRUTH, our American culture, its freedoms, tolerance, its Constitution and civility itself.    Please think and be American….We need to return Congressman Paulsen  to our nation’s HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES of Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District!

 

Our Today’s American Left Has Become Feminized-Fascist Atheistic Mobs

THE MEAN-SPIRITED LEFT

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

The mean-spiritedness of the American Left is a stark feature of our public life. In recent weeks, it has been a daily staple of newspaper headlines. But the Left’s mean-spiritedness manifests itself every day, in ways large and small. At The American Conservative, Rod Dreher offers a sad example from (where else?) Madison, Wisconsin:

In Madison, Wisconsin, the city council has voted overwhelmingly to remove a cemetery marker noting the names of about 140 Confederates, most of whom died in a prisoner of war camp in the town.

Liberals began by protesting statues in the South that honor Confederate soldiers. But of course it didn’t end there. This isn’t a monument celebrating the Confederate cause, it is a grave marker in a Northern cemetery. Where 140 Confederate soldiers are, I take it, buried.

These are Americans who died as prisoners of war. “They die off like rotten sheep,” said a Union soldier who worked at the camp, where conditions were bad. The “monument” is a tombstone large enough to feature the names of each of the dead. This is not a statue of a Confederate war hero. It is simply a grave marker noting the names of POWs who died far from home.

What is the point? Do today’s residents of Madison need to assure the rest of us that Wisconsin was on the side of the Union in the Civil War? I would have thought the Iron Brigade made that clear. It seems to be an expression of pure viciousness.

There is no longer equality before God of the fallen, not in Madison, Wisconsin. The city council spits on these dead men, who passed away not in combat, but in Union custody.

In Grace Church cemetery in my Louisiana hometown, you can visit the grave of Lt. Commander John Hart, US Navy, who captained a Union gunboat that was shelling the town and that very church in 1863. Cmdr Hart committed suicide on the boat during the battle. He was a Freemason, as many of the Confederates were. Hart’s men asked for a truce, and for the right to bury their commander in the Grace Church cemetery with full Masonic honors. The Confederate Masons agreed. So the war stopped while all the combatants gathered around the grave to commit Cmdr Hart to the earth.

Children in my hometown are often taken to Hart’s grave and told the story. His grave is treated with great respect locally, and always has been. That’s what decent people do for the dead. There is a brotherhood that defies mortal conflicts.

Not anymore, there isn’t. Today we have the Left.

The leaders of Madison, Wisconsin, are manifestly not decent people. God preserve us Southerners from behaving so shamefully. I suppose it won’t be long before they disinter the Confederate bodies and put them on a barge down the Mississippi.

It’s hard to imagine what kind of despicable people destroy a tombstone — a tombstone! — for political reasons. This is a sign of the times — and of a time to come.

Indeed. One can hardly write a post on the mean-spiritedness of today’s liberals without mentioning the fallout from the Democrats’ failed effort to bully Brett Kavanaugh out of a seat on the Supreme Court. Here the choice is almost limitless, but let’s go with this one: a writer for the Stephen Colbert show seeks solace in having ruined Judge Kavanaugh’s life:

Today’s liberals have no decency. None whatsoever. Perhaps the most depressing fact is that, to my knowledge, not a single prominent Democrat has repudiated his party’s descent into madness.

Hinderaker Reviews Trump Surge

TRUMP SURGES: IS IT THE ECONOMY OR KAVANAUGH?

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

Or both. Today’s Rasmussen Reports has President Trump at 51% approval, 48% disapproval. Equally significant is his so-called Approval Index, the difference between Strong Approval and Strong Disapproval. That index now stands at -1, with 38% strongly approving of the president. For purposes of comparison, Barack Obama’s Approval Index was -11 at the same point in his presidency. Obama rarely achieved an Approval Index as favorable as -1.

I have no doubt that President Trump is benefiting from the Brett Bounce. At the same time, the economy has to be a factor. The unemployment rate is a flawed statistic, but the lowest unemployment since 1969–3.7%–is obviously good news. President Trump’s is achieving, on the economy, what Barack Obama and other Democrats assured us was impossible a few years ago.

Just wait until voters start to notice how successful Trump has been in the realm of foreign policy!

Schools for Truth in Knowledge? Or Klobuchar Schools for Feminazi Fascism?

THE NEW GULAGS

by Carl R. Trueman            (Article sent by Mark Waldeland.)

. . . I want to teach my students to think. Others only want to teach their students to think like themselves. That contrast in educational philosophies could make the difference between a free society and one dominated by gulags, whether of the Siberian or university variety.
