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.

Trump’s Stand on That Saudi Arabian Business in Turkey

Trump Takes the Right Position (Again) on Khashoggi

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meets with the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Tuesday Oct. 16, 2018. Pompeo also met on Tuesday with Saudi King Salman over the disappearance and alleged slaying of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi, who vanished two weeks ago during a visit to the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. (Leah Millis/Pool via AP)

Gasp and gasp again!  Donald Trump is once more seeming to defend the indefensible.  From the AP:

President Donald Trump Tuesday criticized rapidly mounting global condemnation of Saudi Arabia over the case of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi, warning of a rush to judgment.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Trump compared the situation to the allegations of sexual assault leveled against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing.

“I think we have to find out what happened first,” he said. “Here we go again with, you know, you’re guilty until proven innocent. I don’t like that. We just went through that with Justice Kavanaugh and he was innocent all the way as far as I’m concerned.”

The AP was quick to remind us that the president was again swimming against the tide:

He said it was too early to say whether he endorsed other countries’ actions. “I have to find out what happened,” he said. But his complaint about “guilty until proven innocent” and comparison to the Kavanaugh situation suggested he was giving the Saudis more leeway than other U.S. allies.

Indeed, but which allies?  Turkey?  In the Despot Derby, their President Recep Erdogan seems to be running at least neck-and-neck with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) and may be out front by a nose or more.  Which one has more journalists in jail? Turkey hands down. (They lead the world in that respect.) Which one has beheaded more of its citizens?  The nod goes to Saudi Arabia.  Equal or ahead of them on all counts — Iran.

In the Middle East, suffused as it is by the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya — making it permissible, often required, to lie to the kufr (non-Muslim) for the good of the faith — it’s hard to discern who is telling the truth or anything close.

Trump says he is reacting to vehement disavowals from MBS and his father that they ordered Khashoggi’s death, but are they to be trusted? Westerners may have good instincts about the hysterics of Dr. Blasey Ford, but are less likely to be able to comprehend a culture more insular, determined, and bloodthirsty than the Mafia.

The Khashoggi story has no one close to a hero, not even, perhaps especially, its subject, who was for decades part of the Wahhabi government so in love with beheadings.  The disappeared so-called journalist — actually a lifelong activist for the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist organization that sought, and still covertly seeks, world domination through the likes of Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri — is scarcely someone to be admired, even with his Washington Postbyline.  (Mr. Bezos, please explain why a man with this history is writing for your newspaper.)

A Snag in Today’s Doctrine of Liberal Privilege!

by Jeffrey Lord at The American Spectator:

The Collapse of the American Family

I was born in the city of St. Paul Minnesota during the  great America depression seven years before the attack on Pearl Harbor.   There were 26 housing lots on the single block where I was raised.   Four of them were empty lots until a few years after the end of WWII.

Every house but one  housed a family with children.  That lone  house bore an elderly couple whose daughter and two grandsons  visited for a month or two every summer.

No mother on either side of the block worked away from home.   Fathers worked 6 days each week.   Her first and foremost  duty, according to the  culture of the day, was to be a Mother of  her children.  Sunday was for Church.   The Landmarks who lived  two houses East from our block lost their 18 year old son in the Pacific war in 1942.   Mr.  Joyce who lived on our side of the block smelled of booze every once in a while on Saturdays after he mowed his lawn.

Mrs. Wilbur Peterson was a Baptist….the only one in sight.  Two or three times per week in spring and summer, while walking up and down our block most mornings, she’d preach something Biblical…..usually from the Psalms except during Holy Week each year when she’d remind all of Jesus’ suffering .  It was her way of being friendly.

Until after the War the entire block would gather for a picnic in Spring and Autumn in the empty lot behind our house.

Divorces happened in Reno, Nevada….not in Minnesota in those days.   No one swore bad words in public.  Tiny, but very athletic Raymond Nelson at age about ten had climbed up on Mr. Jahnke’s garage roof.  Some of the garage shingles were loosening up and Ray was curious.  Once safe upon the roof he discovered sailing shingles into the air was a delight…..as if sailing basketball.   He loosened about 50 more shingles to test how far he could deliver them into the great beyond.

When he heard Mr. Jahnke was angry and was hunting down the kid that that ruined his garage roof, Ray blame me for the mischief.   When he marched to our house to name me the alleged, but innocent  “villain” before my  Mother, she sent him home shaking from her response.   The Truth was I could  never do anything like climbing up ladders to any height.   I had a powerful fear of heights and would never get on a ladder of any height in those days.

A couple days later Mr. Jahnke returned to our house to confess that Ray Nelson had admitted it was he who  dismembered the  garage shingles.   He apologized for his error and gave Mom a jar of home made strawberry jam (my favorite at that time) hoping I would forgive him.

We lived only three blocks from the Mississippi River.   It was War time…..time for boys to play War and explore.   Raymond and I did play together along the river which would have leveled our parents to the floor in shock if they had discovered our favorite game….”defeating the Nazis”.  It was 1943.  I had a toy German Luger.  Ray had his toy pistol…and we would sneak down to the river and hunt for and shoot the enemy….about five or six huntings that Spring and Summer.

Hawks and eagles were Nazi dive bombers.  Bluebirds were  Stukas.   We “powed” them with our guns.  Squirrels were spies.  We threw stones at them.   We didn’t disturb raccoons.  They were too nasty.

We preferred earlier Spring huntings.  The Mississippi was much noisier then.  The water rushing from the North  attacked the limestone sides with such power a person  could barely  hear another.

It sounded like the  War,  bombings, cannons, machine guns the kind  we’d hear in the movies.   We’d scare ourselves….We’d jump from  boulder to boulder between rushing water occasionally.  And we survived.   It was the growing up boy in us…..the explorers, the warriors.

The era of that American family with Mothers died long ago.  So many human animals today  prefer to absorb legal and illegal drugs by junior high school….and are taught leftism and its greed and envy instead of knowledge in the classroom.

Marriage is disappearing. Sunday is just another play day.  God has disappeared almost entirely in thought and deed.   Democrats have become savages.

Please read about America today…below!

Leftists and the Art of Their Mobs

Leftism: The Art of the Mob

by Christopher Chantrill  at American Thinker:

The last week has seen the usual suspects getting miffed when people called out the anti-Kavanaugh “peaceful protesters” as mobs.

Oh, come now, lefty friends.  You chaps are as bad as the First Apostle, whom the Son of God famously predicted would deny him three times.

Own up to your genius, which has been to turn the crude bronze implement of “the Mob” into a finely tempered sword of Japanese steel, the disciplined NPCs of the “peaceful protest.”  Talk about Darwinian evolution: what used to be a “riot” became a “march,” then a “demonstration.”  It has now, finally, reached its full potential as a “peaceful protest.”  Oh, except when confronting the conservative son of Susan Rice on the campus of Stanford University.  That is different.

Back when a mob was a mob, we had the example of Alexander Hamilton, who bravely kept the mob at bay at the front door of the house of Myles Cooper, Loyalist president of King’s College in New York City (now Columbia University), while Cooper escaped out the back door.

But by 1820, when the machine-breaking agricultural laborers in southeast England wanted farmers to destroy their job-killing threshing machines, the rioters all signed their non-negotiable demands with the moniker “Captain Swing.”  It’s almost as if someone were organizing their laborer community.

Nearly 20 years later, in 1848, the Chartists marched on London and held a meeting on Kennington Common that was planned as an attack on the Houses of Parliament on the other side of the River Thames.  But in the event, the leaders merely presented a petition to Parliament.

You can imagine that this sort of mob action caught the attention of young rich kids with a taste for political power, kids like Marx and Engels.  It was their genius to turn the genuine bottom-up working-class movements of the agricultural laborers and urban workers into a top-down politico-religious world movement led by Educated Youth.  The vanguard of educated rich scions would use the working class as their political foot-soldiers in a movement to prevent the bourgeoisie from immiserating the planet.

That is what left-wing politics has been about ever since: dressing up the naked fury of the turbulent mob into the decent drapery of the “peaceful protest” and pretending it is all about justice rather than the naked thrust for power.

So, by the 1960s, the protesters were not the wretched of the Earth, workers and peasants, but well born college kids,  the radical children of liberal parents, as Midge Decter called them in 1975.  Now, in 2018, we have the protesters as obviously well born Special Snowflakes taught their left-wing Catechism by government-paid gender studies professors and the diversity and inclusion bureaucrats of today’s university.  Hey, rich kids!  Don’t forget that this is all supposed to be for the victims!

The reason why our liberal friends are so upset about the accusations of their mob action is the outrage of lifting the decent drapery of “peaceful protest” to reveal the nakedness of their power-lust and the fashionable revolutionary politics underneath.

As the cartoonist points out, this lefty war on America has been busily demolishing the pillars of our society for years: freedom of religion, because traditional religions are not allowed to dissent from lefty orthodoxy on race and sex; freedom of speech, because anything the left disagrees with is hate speech; and now due process, because believe all women.

To refresh your memory: Our forefathers invented these freedoms and legal procedures as a way to limit the power of monarchs.  It turned out to be just the thing to cool the jets of overenthusiastic political activists and the left in general.

And really, what could be better than to have our lefty friends remind us, with their NPC “peaceful protests,” exactly why we have all these institutional safeguards?  The whole point of limited government has turned out to be precisely to keep the left from destroying everything we hold dear.

If the American people go out to vote on November 6, 2018, and deliver a sharp rebuke to the radical left Democratic Party, perhaps we can hope the Democrats will swerve to the center a lot quicker than they did after their last leftward lurch in the sixties.

The left is a reactionary movement that wants to return the world to the good old days of the agricultural age, when political power, defending your patch – or your empire – of food-growing land, was everything in life.  In those days, a few people were kings and lords and temple priests, but most of us were slaves.

What would it take to persuade the left that political power is a dead letter, the graveyard of hope?  I suppose that the only answer is defeat – agonizing, humiliating defeat.

I wish there were another way.

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.

The Disappearance of democrat Among Obama Democrats

 

Democrats vs. democrats

By Michael Widlanski  at American Thinker:

 

To be a Democrat is not the same as to be a “democrat.”

To be a Democrat means belonging to a party ruled by mood-swings and slogans: “I’m with her,” “Yes we can,” and “Me, too.”

To be a democrat means trusting the power of the people, but understanding that the power of the people is restrained by law, custom and due process.

A majority cannot vote to rape Joan or to rob John.  A majority — in Congress or on campus — cannot silence Jill or Jim, because it really hates them or what they’re saying.

To be a democrat demands maturity and emotional intelligence. It means knowing that not all problems quickly meet perfect solutions. A democrat understands less-than-perfect compromises must be made.

To be a Democrat means demanding the tools of power the way a child demands toys, then  throwing a tantrum when the toy arrives late or not at all.

Worse,  being a Democrat means to destroy the “toy” if it has to be shared with someone else. It does not matter if it’s the Presidency, the Senate, or the Supreme Court: “It’s mine, and you can’t have it!”

If it’s the presidency, “we’ll impeach it.” If it’s the Senate, “we’ll hound it.”  If it’s the Supreme Court, “we’ll  pack it.” If it’s voter base, “we’ll replace it.” (By illegal immigration.)

To be a democrat (small d) means to understand the limits of power, while to be a Democrat means seeking power by all means, to talk high while going low.

“Our motto is when they go low, we go high,” observed Michelle Obama at the last Democratic National Convention. That was only a few years after her Barack’s senate campaign managed to exploit particularly lowball tactics — intimate documents released about both his primary rival and his general election rival.

Low tactics are now the Democrats’ favorite tradition: Democrats systematically create unsubstantiated sexual allegations (like Senator Dianne Feinstein against Judge Brett Kavanaugh) or financial accusations (like Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid claiming Mitt Romney was a tax cheat).

After the lie is discovered, Democrats have a particular skill in showing no shame, no embarrassment, no blushing, particularly if the lie worked.

“They can call it whatever they want,” said a smiling Reid, after he was caught lying about Romney’s taxes. “Romney didn’t win, did he?” Getting the job for your guy and denying the job to their guy is the only test.

When Democrats get in trouble, first, they stall and evade investigation. Then they bury, shred, hammer and burn the evidence (not necessarily in that order), even if the evidence is under subpoena.

The story of the security failures that led to the murder of four Americans in Libya, including the U.S. ambassador, was covered up the Obama administration, just as it concealed the full extent of the security breaches in the use and misuse of Hillary Clinton’s emails. The FBI and State Department were so helpful.

We have had similar sagas in the cases of House Democrats’ computers penetrated by a Pakistani technician, Senator Feinstein’s in-house Chinese spy, former National Security advisor Sandy Berger stealing documents, or CIA director John Deutch, guilty of keeping classified material on his home computer. All were swept under the Democrat carpet of plea deals or pardons.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Barack Obama have urged Democrats “to get into the faces” of political opponents. What a surprise: Democrat gangs have hounded, harassed and even assaulted Republican senators, representatives and cabinet members.  Sometimes worse: a backer of Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders tried to murder several Republican Congressional representatives while they were playing baseball on June 17 last year.

The attacker, James Hodgkinson, was a volunteer in the presidential campaign of Senator Sanders.  Bernie’s supporter shot and nearly killed Rep. Steve Scalise, the GOP deputy congressional leader. Scalise’s life was saved, along with others, by police who killed the Sanders volunteer.

“I am sickened by this despicable act,” said Sanders. He and other Democrats were “sickened” only briefly. They quickly recovered.

Sanders, Obama, and Hillary Clinton constantly urge backers to “resist.” It is an interesting choice of words. “To resist” is usually reserved for fighting dictators like Castro in Cuba or Chavez in Venezuela or totalitarian rulers like Saddam Hussein, Stalin, or Hitler.

“I am part of the Resistance,” declared Clinton even before Donald Trump, put his hand on a bible to swear to protect the law of the land. Trump won by law, but he triumphed over the predictions and hopes of the Democrats.

Real democrats would have acknowledged the Trump victory. Reeling Democrats could not.

This means politics played according to Coach Vince Lombardi’s dictum, without any other rules or referee: “Winning isn’t everything. It’s the only thing.”

This is exactly what Obama’s alter-ego, ex-attorney general Eric Holder, meant when at a Democrat campaign stop in Georgia, he publicly redacted Michelle Obama’s high-sounding “we go high” remarks.  “No, no,” said Holder, ‘when they go low, we kick ‘em.”

It is time for all Americans who are democrats to take a page from Abraham Lincoln, the first great Republican, who lost patience with dithering generals who avoided a showdown with the South and its Democratic backers during America’s first Civil War. Lincoln knew he had to fight, and he needed to find a fighting general.

America — not just Trump — is in a different kind of civil war. It needs a fighting general, perhaps a fighting attorney general, who will apply the full legal options against “The Resistance.”

It is time for democrats of every party (or no party) to fight back against the Democrats.

To be a Democrat means demanding the tools of power the way a child demands toys, then  throwing a tantrum when the toy arrives late or not at all.

Worse,  being a Democrat means to destroy the “toy” if it has to be shared with someone else. It does not matter if it’s the Presidency, the Senate, or the Supreme Court: “It’s mine, and you can’t have it!”

If it’s the presidency, “we’ll impeach it.” If it’s the Senate, “we’ll hound it.”  If it’s the Supreme Court, “we’ll  pack it.” If it’s voter base, “we’ll replace it.” (By illegal immigration.)

“I am part of the Resistance,” declared Clinton even before Donald Trump, put his hand on a bible to swear to protect the law of the land. Trump won by law, but he triumphed over the predictions and hopes of the Democrats.

Real democrats would have acknowledged the Trump victory. Reeling Democrats could not.

This means politics played according to Coach Vince Lombardi’s dictum, without any other rules or referee: “Winning isn’t everything. It’s the only thing.”

This is exactly what Obama’s alter-ego, ex-attorney general Eric Holder, meant when at a Democrat campaign stop in Georgia, he publicly redacted Michelle Obama’s high-sounding “we go high” remarks.  “No, no,” said Holder, ‘when they go low, we kick ‘em.”

It is time for all Americans who are democrats to take a page from Abraham Lincoln, the first great Republican, who lost patience with dithering generals who avoided a showdown with the South and its Democratic backers during America’s first Civil War. Lincoln knew he had to fight, and he needed to find a fighting general.

America — not just Trump — is in a different kind of civil war. It needs a fighting general, perhaps a fighting attorney general, who will apply the full legal options against “The Resistance.”

It is time for democrats of every party (or no party) to fight back against the Democrats.
