The new Ukraine President’s fighting the Russian-backed rebels to a standstill lacks news value. The Kurds, accomplishing what the Iraqi government can’t by stopping ISIL in its tracks isn’t worthy of attention. And the financial collapse of oil-rich Venezuela under socialist management isn’t news either. But the U.S. media is fascinated by the anschluss that the Left has apparently organized and thrown at the U.S. border since the immigration ‘reform’ Dream Act became stuck in Congress receives endless and obsessive coverage.
The coverage doesn’t focus on the suddenly ineffectual border policing organization or why they have been ordered not to talk to reporters or even about what their current orders may be. It hasn’t wondered how a mass of Central Americans suddenly decided to traverse Mexico all at once or how they found the money to do that. And they have shown no curiosity about why Mexico is allowing the stampede. No, it’s all about the heart-tugging needs of the arriving children and of how America will perform its duty to take them in, feed, clothe, educate and succor them for the rest of their lives. And of course, their uncles and cousins, too. Bah, humbug! There doesn’t seem to be a real, live reporter worthy of the title among the entire media. Those have all been replaced with bleeding-heart sob sisters.
Some interesting things have leaked out, though. We heard that in Nevada, no border state, some 49 thousand illegals have applied for drivers’ licenses. (Thank you, Harry Reid!) We learned of a Federal lawsuit against a Wisconsin county where an English-only requirement is now “discrimination.” We know that the Feds aren’t relocating the horde back to Mexico or Central America, they’re being shipped all over the U.S. We’re informed that the TSA is allowing illegals to fly without I.D. It has leaked out that Mexico and Guatemala are “fast-tracking” the illegals to the U.S. border And we learned of one radio journalist threatened with jail if he broadcast from outside an immigration center and some doctors threatened with arrest for describing medical conditions among the arrivals. All this puts a powerful smell into the air, and it isn’t the effluvium of the invading wetbacks.
The offensive odor is coming from the President of the United States and his government and from the U.S. Congress. They are for political purposes ignoring the U.S. laws that they have made and sworn to enforce. They are doing this at great cost to the welfare of the United States and totally uncaring for the welfare of the illegal aliens that they have victimized. They are by all the indications, perpetrating the largest swindle we can recall, maybe the largest in human history, though we’re not sure of that. All government is by nature corrupt. The U.S. government has generally been less corrupt than most but at this, as we see things, that cannot be said of its leaders. The political game being played with hundreds of thousands of human lives at the U.S. border ought to win a corruption Olympics.
