Happy Second Day of Christmas!

BORDER WALL: “The wall is the will of the American people.” — In 2016, I remember listening to Campaign Donald talking about his Big Beautiful Wall and thinking, “WHATever.” But you know … the longer and louder and harder the Left fights to keep it from being built, the more sold I am on The Donald’s vision. We’re tired of government standing with illegals over citizens! Build The Wall!! MAGA!!!

RAND PAUL FINDS MORE THAN $114 MILLION IN WASTE: Here are just a few places where we could free up some money for the wall … NOT studying the sexual habits of quails on cocaine: $874,503 … NOT supporting “legislative priorities” in Libya: $1,000,000 … NOT supporting Egyptian tourism: $18,000,000 … NOT studying daydreaming (NIH): $2,488,153.

TRUMP DERANGED MEDIA: On Christmas Day, while Mr. and Mrs. Trump were flying to Iraq to visit troops, NBC and MSNBC published “President Trump becomes first president since 2002 not to visit troops at Christmastime” with a photo of President Bush visiting a soldier in a hospital bed. Cuz we all know how much NBC and MSNBC admired W … right?

NOT SURPRISING: They need someone to tell them what to do — Chuck Schumer is a spineless weasel and Nancy Pelosi seems to be suffering from some form of dementia. If only we knew what unelected individual or body was actually pulling on their puppet strings. And for the record, Fed Chair Powell is the one causing the stock market to dive and SecDef Mattis wasn’t fired, he’s retiring.

WHILE DEMOCRATS SHUT DOWN GOVERNMENT: Trump shut down “catch and release” — On Dec 20, 2018, Homeland announced the United States will begin the process of invoking Section 235(b)(2)(C) of the Immigration and Nationality Act requiring aliens to wait for immigration court dates outside our borders.

ALGORE’s INCONVENIENT TRUTH: Twelve years of being wrong — Former Vice President Al Gore won an Oscar and Nobel Prize for sounding the alarm in book and film as a Climate Control Caped Crusader. He also got filthy rich wrongly predicting Rising Sea Levels (yet he purchased a beachfront mansion!), Increased Tornadoes (they’ve been declining for decades), A New Ice Age in Europe (never happened), South Sahara Drying Up (never happened), Massive Flooding in China and India (never happened), Melting Arctic (2015 had the largest refreeze in years), Polar Bear Extinction (they are increasing), Temperature Increases Due to CO2 (there has been no significant rising for over 18 years), Katrina a Foreshadow of the Future (nope), and The Earth Would be in a “True Planetary Emergency” Within a Decade Unless Drastic Action Taken to Reduce Greenhouse Gasses (his home consumes uses 34 times more energy than the national average).

He’s right: The Left hates Christians, especially those of the Catholic persuasion — As Democrat senators attacked a judicial nominee for belonging to the Knights of Columbus, New York State was putting left-wing politics above the needs of orphans. Empire State officials have threatened to close down New Hope Family Services in Syracuse, New York, if they don’t stop placing children only in homes that have a married mother and father.

The Second Day of Christmas is also known as Boxing Day, so happy that also. 🙂

The ACTUAL Moral Choice

For an open-minded, fair-thinking person (IOW, not Nancy Pelosi), building the wall should obviously be the most compassionate, sensible and moral thing our nation could do in addressing concerns over our southern border. Here are five reasons why:

  1. Building a strong border boundary would allow more people from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to staff the designated ports of entry, so as to process more quickly and efficiently those seeking asylum, as well as those hoping to find jobs in America.  As it is today, thousands of personnel from CBP and the Department of Homeland Security have to patrol our very long, open and porous border with Mexico.  Democrats, Republicans and others rightly bemoan the plight of desperate people seeking freedom and safety in America.  Why would one not want to enable more of these people to have their cases resolved expeditiously?
  2. By having an effective, permanent wall, the government could actual increase the number and locations of designated ports of entry, again allowing more people to be processed in a timely manner.  By stopping illegal entry into the country where there is no barrier, those with nefarious reasons to enter would more likely forego an attempted entry, allowing for those with legitimate and understandable reasons to come here and to be granted entrance more quickly.
  3. The flow of illegal drugs across the border is both a moral issue and a matter of life and death.  Millions of people in the United States are victims of drug addiction and death due to the relative ease with which drug cartels move drugs and cash back and forth over the border.  While some drug smugglers are caught trying to enter at a port of entry, many simply walk or drive across where there is no barrier.
  4. Human traffickers routinely transport people across the border.  Many of their victims end up in the sex trade or in forced-labor situations.  Most of them are minors.  Desperate and trusting parents in Mexico and Central America often pay thousands of dollars to these traffickers, hoping to secure a better life for their children in America—only to have this happen.  Traffickers also take advantage of runaway or orphaned children.  This is a blight on our nation’s soul and a human tragedy that is repeated virtually every day.  What kind of misguided thinking would not see this as an enormous moral issue?  Based on this alone, a border wall to stop this victimization of innocent people is a moral imperative.  As serious as the matter of drug-smuggling is, human smuggling is even more stark and gut-wrenching.  Even if this were the only reason to have a strong border—it would be sufficient to justify such an undertaking.
  5. Finally, if one believes our government has a moral obligation to protect its citizens, the national security implications for border security are indicative of the need for a border wall.  Hundreds of illegal immigrants apprehended at our southern border each year are not from Central or South America, but rather are from the Middle East and Africa.  After the events of 9/11, one of the findings of the investigation following the attacks was that the United States had a “failure of imagination.”  We simply did not imagine the lengths our enemies would go to attack our nation.  We could not grasp the idea that they would be so creative as to thwart our transportation system and use planes full of people as guided missiles.  What are we overlooking at our southern border? What people, and with what weapons, would exploit our porous and ineffective border to plan and launch another devastating attack on the homeland?
