Our public consistently ends up in an information black hole due to a total lack of inquisitiveness among our elite “journalists”, who early on in each “crisis” circle the wagons of liberal political orthodoxy and refuse to allow any new facts in. It’s a vast, dark place where we reside, alone in the darkness, trying to decipher the ground truth of situations.
On the border crisis, in consistent left-wing ideologically driven fashion, Nancy Pelosi hit the airwaves to parlay Glenn Beck’s humanitarian effort on the border into broad political support for President Obama’s request for billions of dollars in emergency funding for the border mess. She’s now using the “baby Jesus” in her cold-blooded, political posturing, courtesy of Breibart,“Pelosi: Border Children Should Be Treated Like Refugee Baby Jesus”:
“Pelosi concluded, “I reference the conference of bishops statement in which they say baby Jesus was a refugee from violence. Let us not turn away these children and send them back into a burning building. That’s the bishops, so we have to do this in a way that honors our values but also protects our border and does so in a way that the American people understand more clearly.”
So, the Democrat brain trust wants to convince right-wing Christians that it’s a moral duty to treat all these illegal immigrant children like the baby Jesus, which requires forking over billions of dollars of hard-working taxpayers’ money, not their own personal tithing. Note to Nancy, Jesus was born in a manger, because of people like you in charge – they had to travel to Bethlehem to pay taxes. Glenn Beck raised private money for his effort and when you’re dealing with private charity, if you burn that bridge on fiscal responsibility by misappropriating funds, your funding dries up. President Obama and frankly Congress too come to us pandering for more money, more support and more votes, with nothing to show for the vast debt they’ve burdened our children and us with for the foreseeable future. Money won’t solve this border mess, securing our borders and the President obeying our immigration laws will.
If you, like me, remained skeptical about the endless reporting, replete with handy-dandy statistics on Central American “gang violence” terror these refugees ( quite a potent political stink-bomb, the Democrats, set off with that term) are fleeing, well, finally someone came up with some cause and effect information that actually makes sense.
A few days ago, Tara Servatius penned a fascinating piece at the American Thinker,“The brutal Obama policy that’s really driving the Border Crisis”. Don’t expect the mainstream media to mention this, which shines light into their “gang violence” black hole theory. Servatius states:
“The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop until conservatives learn about the obscure Obama administration policy that’s deliberately driving it and reverse it.
Issued in August of 2013, the policy is called the “Family Interest Directive,” and it essentially forbids Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from deporting, arresting or even detaining any illegal immigrant who is the caretaker of a child. That includes parents, legal guardians and even unrelated adults who merely claim they care for the child in question. The theory behind the directive is that it would be morally wrong to separate children from their “caretakers.”
Eureka, a Obama policy gambit forecasting that illegal immigrants with children, won’t be deported gets issued in August 2013 and a massive run on our Southern border ensues, hummm, now why hasn’t any mainstream journalist reported on this Obama refugee stink bomb? Well, there you have it folks, the truth doesn’t fit their saving baby Jesus narrative.
So obviously, ditching that directive and securing the border seem crucial to resolving this crisis, but President Obama and Nancy Pelosi, crassly tossing the baby Jesus into the public debate, talk only about more money for the refugees. It’s so obvious, yet the mainstream media plays along, clueless as usual, willing dupes for the political-left again. NO WAY, Jose (oops how unPC can I be), to tossing more taxpayer dollars to this spendthrift President and political cronies in Congress. How about a real plan to secure the border and stop the cause of the flood!
