‘The Kids, The Kids,’ And Other Crap (Parents Are Custodians Of Their kids, Not Uncle Sam & US Taxpayers)

Ann Coulter, Democrats, Family, IMMIGRATION, Morality, Republicans, Welfare

“The kids, the kids.” Never have I seen such a sickeningly sanctimonious press as America’s, convulsing over kids detained at the border, in accordance with US law.

Treacherous “elites vie to see who can reach the greatest heights of rhetorical excess and self-righteous posturing,” said Tucker. It’s an event, a happening, for them, and we Deplorables must look up to and learn from these avatars of morality.

Stand your ground, Kirstjen Nielsen, Head Of Homeland Security. Those breaking the border are using their kids as pawns, not you or President Trump.

Tom Homan, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, certainly stood up to the sniveling, manipulative media with facts about the law and the right of national sovereignty. And, what do you know? THEY, in the person of Wolf Blitzer, CRUMBLED apologetically. The GOP is too dumb to have figured out that a backbone, and fidelity to just law, scares the Democrats more than anything.

Parents are custodians of their kids, not the US state and the American taxpayer.

With respect to The “Big Con,” as Jack Kerwick calls the entity that passes for conservatism:

Immigration virtue-signaler Jason Chaffetz proclaimed he “felt a moral obligation to the person trying to come here LEGALLY.” Ann Coulter corrected the con: “OR, TO THE AMERICAN TRYING TO GET A JOB.”

Also on Fix News’ the Next Revolutionary, the ego in the anchor’s chair (he hardly let Ann Coulter talk) was stymied by the quick-acting Ms. Coulter, who managed to turn to the camera and tell Trump and America, LOUDLY:

“Don’t listen to those child actors on TV.” LOL.

“The answer is don’t bring our kids in illegally”:

“They care about AMERICAN kids separated from their parents for life — killed by illegal aliens. NO compassion for Don Rosenberg, Mary Ann Mendoza, etc etc …”

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen did OK.

Who Knew? Microsoft Is On The Side Of The Little Angels

Business, IMMIGRATION, Technology

It was only a matter of time before Microsoft began to signal its virtue around the politically correct issue du jour.

The company came out to the world about its dismay at “the forcible separation of children from their families at the border,” and expressed support for “family unification,” which is, after all, its H-1B bread-and-butter.

When your CEOs are worth hundreds of millions, their “humble” dwellings have zip codes that place them far from the madding crowds.

As a company, Microsoft is dismayed by the forcible separation of children from their families at the border. Family unification has been a fundamental tenant [sic] of American policy and law since the end of World War II. As a company, Microsoft has worked for over 20 years to combine technology with the rule of law to ensure that children who are refugees and immigrants can remain with their parents. We need to continue to build on this noble tradition rather than change course now. We urge the administration to change its policy and Congress to pass legislation ensuring children are no longer separated from their families.

Non-‘Shithole’ Countries Seem To Recover Quickly From Disasters, Natural Or Man-Made

Business, Economy, Federal Reserve Bank, Human Accomplishment, IMMIGRATION, Intelligence, Technology

In 2008, Iceland collapsed under the weight of its banking industry’s federal-reserve like excesses.

In 2018, Iceland’s is a red hot economy. The highly able population has shifted from finance to technology and tourism. No bailout—allowing the banks to collapse and a natural recovery take place—has a lot to do with it.

“… rather than stepping in with taxpayers’ money like the British and Americans did, the Icelandic government let its banks go bust.”

Likewise did Chile cope reasonably well with what was “one of the most powerful earthquakes in history.” We hear nothing of Chile’s struggles to recover.

Not so Haiti, the Africa of the Western Hemisphere.

Haiti is forever convulsed by political and natural disasters. It remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, where four out of five people live in poverty and more than half in abject poverty (NYT).

It’s nearly two decades since a pair of earthquakes struck El Salvador in 2001. The US government granted Salvadoreans a generous grant of privilege in the late 1990s, in the form of a temporary protected status (TPS) for nearly 200,000.

Ditto the “Haitians who were stranded after an earthquake in 2010.”

To the din of protest, “the United States’ Department of Homeland Security had only recently revoked the so-called temporary protection (it lasted nearly 2 decades).

“Shithole countries,” a Trump coinage, don’t seem to recover very well from disasters, natural or man-made, do they?

UPDATED (6/15): A Global ‘Right Of Return’ To The U.S.? Who Knew?

Donald Trump, IMMIGRATION, Individualism Vs. Collectivism, Left-Liberalism, The State

NEW COLUMN IS “A Global ‘Right Of Return’ To The U.S.? Who Knew?” It’s now on Townhall.com. An excerpt:

No good deed goes unpunished. Jeff Sessions wants to restore to America the “sound principles of asylum” and long-standing tenets of immigration law, abandoned by American leaders over the decades.

That makes the attorney general a Hitler, to use liberal argumentation. Condemned for all eternity.

As the left sees it, if America isn’t going to police the world; it must at least provide shelter to all people from unpoliced parts of the world.

That’s the left’s reason du jour for opposing the restoration of American immigration sovereignty.

And now, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is piling on.

By narrowing promiscuously broad asylum criteria—the system is being gamed, attests Andrew Arthur, a former immigration judge—Sessions stands accused of flouting the “right to life” of the women of the world.

No matter that America has its own share of abused women “persecuted by their husbands and ignored by their own governments.” The last, parenthetic remarks were uttered by immigration lawyers, who mask greed with prattle about values.

This legal club is looking out exclusively for the women of the world, not the women of America. To them, we are the world.

Over the objections of such rent-seekers, Sessions has dared to say “no!”

“Asylum was never meant to alleviate all problems—even all serious problems—that people face every day all over the world,” reasoned Sessions, quite sagaciously.

To manipulate Americans, politicians (save the likes of President Trump and his attorney general) use the values cudgel.

With respect to immigration, the idea is to impress upon pliable Americans that the world has a global Right of Return to the U.S. Fail to accept egalitarian immigration for all into America; and you are flouting the very essence of Americanism. …

... READ THE REST. “A Global ‘Right Of Return’ To The U.S.? Who Knew?” is now on Townhall.com.

UPDATE (6/15):

Trump tells Shinzo Abe, “You don’t have this (immigration) problem, but I can send you 25 million Mexicans and you’ll be out of office very soon.” Brilliant audacity.
