This Is What Israel’s Walls Look Like. Does The US Have Such Unscalable Things, Mr. President?

In Israel, they call it a “security fence.” That sounds less foreboding. But this is no fence.

What the US has on its southern border is, for the most, … some fencing.

And this manned, near- impermeable wall is on Israel’s South, meant to stop illegal African immigrants, not necessarily terrorists. Via Breitbart:

Nancy Pelosi Confirms That A Good America Is A Borderless America

Democrats, IMMIGRATION, Left-Liberalism, Morality

As I wrote in “Liberals Want America To Go Borderless,” “What those liberals colonizing our heads are attempting to convey is that a good America, a just America, a moral America is de facto and de jure a borderless America”—ILANA Mercer.

Now Nancy Pelosi confirms and seconds the suspicions about the Democrats’ position regarding borders:

“Most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective, expensive,” Pelosi said. “And the president said he’d promise, he also promised Mexico would pay for it. So, even if they did, it’s immoral still, and they’re not going to pay for it. So that isn’t how I would interpret a continuing resolution.
“We can move forward with this. We have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders — north, south, and coming in by plane on our coast — three coasts, north south and west — and that’s a responsibility we honor. But we do so by honoring our values as well.”

“Read my lips: no new taxes.”

That pledge was the centerpiece of Bush’s acceptance address, written by speechwriter Peggy Noonan, for his party’s nomination at the 1988 Republican National Convention.

What will President Trump’s political epitaph be?

“Read My Lips: I’ll Build The Wall.”

Amid the slush of sentimentality over the death of George H. Bush, nobody in media made mention of where “W” (shrub Jr.) had been when he bid farewell to his father.

The State, remember, is not The People. The interests the dead pursued, for the most, were not those of ordinary Americans.

Maybe Israel can help?

NEW COLUMN: Let’s Mobilize An Army Of Stone Throwers On Border

NEW COLUMN IS  “Let’s Mobilize An Army Of Stone Throwers On Border.” It’s currently on Townhall.com, WND.com, The Unz Review. And, tomorrow, on American Greatness.

An excerpt:

In the United States, even Customs and Border Protection apologizes for doing its job. CBP is supposed to “protects the public from dangerous people and materials attempting to cross the border …”

On one of the networks that wants all people, dangerous or not, to cross the southern border into the U.S., if they so desire, a CBP officer was bending over backwards to appear like a “global force for good.” (That, believe it or not, was the U.S. Navy’s motto, between 2009 and 2015!)

Tear-gassing rubble-rousing migrants, who were charging his officers and breaching the U.S.-Mexico border, was in the service of protecting … the migrants, especially The Children. Perhaps that’s in the oath of office a CBP officer takes?

Law enforcement officers entrusted with the safety of the American people struggle to articulate pride in executing their mandate. Attached to the expected self-loathing repartee is, invariably, a declaration of loyalties to The World. (Of a piece with this confused loyalty is the typical argument made by the typical TV talker: Illegal immigration must be stopped, so as to … save migrants from the journey’s depredations.)

It’s instructive to contrast the apologetics around defending the U.S. border and the American people with the absence of apologies on Israel’s borders.

In May this year, “Tens of thousands of Palestinians massed near Gaza’s border fence, threatening to ‘return’ to the lands their forefathers lost when Israel was created in 1948.” They wanted in.

Israeli soldiers responded not with tear gas, but with bullets. They killed over 60 protesters who threatened to breach the border. The number has since risen to 120.

Most of us, this writer included, would condemn such excessive force.

Yet surprisingly, the Economist—a liberal, pro-Palestinian, most excellent weekly—pondered but briefly and nonchalantly about Israel’s army having used excessive force, concluding almost callously: “Every state has a right to defend its borders.”

Come again?!

This from the very same editorialists who never tire of protesting any disruption in the holy quest of weary columns of Christ-like caravanners, planning to defy the U.S. government, by illegally entering the United States of America. …

TRIVIA: The motto of the U.S. Navy from 2009 till 2015 was: “America’s Navy: A Global Force for Good.” Pretty sick, if you’re an America First Deplorable who thinks that “Defending America” is a better, more constitutional, motto to live by.
