Why are Haitians sent home but Mexicans and Central Americans get to stay?

Joe Biden’s border policy would be comical if it weren’t so destructive and tragic. He in effect tells would-be immigrants, “Please don’t come but, if you do, we’ll let you in and let you stay.”

Predictably, they do come, they do get let in, and they do stay. Put another way, they come, they see and they conquer — all at the implicit invitation of the president. How long before they get dinner at the White House?

Millions come. Border towns are overrun. Sanitation is bad. Conditions are horrendous, filthy and unprecedented.

Twenty-six state governors begged Biden to take time out from (another) vacation to discuss the matter. On behalf of the American people they represent, the governors asked that our immigration laws be enforced – that these illegal immigrants be prevented from committing their illegal act of entering and staying in the United States, not to mention whatever additional illegal acts they may commit once they’re here. Biden ignored the governors.

A few reporters have shouted out questions to Biden about the disaster. His reply was that he wanted to ride his bicycle

The mainstream media (assuming CNN and MSNBC are not fringe elements these days) mostly ignore the border debacle because the president responsible for it is a Democrat. Compare their sparse coverage of the terrible border situation under this Democrat with their incessant coverage of the better border under his Republican predecessor. But even the media is finally taking notice of the problem.

But still, the immigrants come, they see and they conquer. Because the president invites them to.

Except Haitians. Haitians were slow to the border but are quickly making up lost ground. Thousands are now at the border on the U.S. side living in squalor under a bridge. They apparently don’t get to stay, however. Biden is flying them back to Haiti.

Why? Why do the illegal Mexican and Central American immigrants get to come, see and conquer while the illegal Haitian immigrants come, see and get sent home?

The reasons are related and troubling. One, the Mexican and Central American illegals have on their side powerful American Hispanic activists (but generally not ordinary Hispanics). Hispanic activists are a potent political force. Democrats including this president kowtow to them.  

Haitians, in contrast, have no such political lobby. Haitians are almost all black but American black activists have little use for them, just as they have little use for Africans. Maybe that’s because black Haitians and black Africans desperate to come to America to live and work are inconvenient to American black activists’ narrative that America is a horribly anti-black racist place.

The second reason is more basic. White suburban liberals are OK with illegal Hispanics since their skin color is pretty white and they do a good job cleaning suburban bathrooms. But black Haitians, unlike American blacks, have relatively little white blood in them. They tend to be very black and they don’t do bathrooms. They scare white suburban liberals.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying the illegal Haitians should be allowed to stay. No how, no way. I favor immigration and I like immigrants but only the legal kind. Nations without borders become non-nations.

What I’m saying is that the illegal Mexicans and Central Americans should not be allowed to stay either. Nor should other illegals, whether white, black, brown or any other color. Singling out people for deportation on the basis of their race is racist.  

Lock her up – Hillary is going down

A Hillary Clinton lawyer has been indicted for lying to the FBI in the Clinton campaign’s 2016 smear of Donald Trump.

The lawyer fed bogus information to the FBI to fuel the false allegation that Trump was colluding with Russia. The lawyer lied to the FBI by stating that he was acting purely as a private citizen, while his own firm’s billing records prove he was actually working for Hillary’s campaign.

As the current occupant of the office for which Hillary was campaigning might say in a rare lucid moment, “This is a big f*cking deal.”

Something wicked this way comes – the midterms will be a Democrat apocalypse

It will be a catastrophe of Biblical proportions.  Think fire and brimstone. The Four Horsemen of Joe, Kamala, Nancy and Chuck riding off a cliff. Cats like AOC sleeping with dogs like Bill Clinton (OK, that’s not odd, but it’s sure icky). Locusts. Hillary’s persistent pestilent pantsuits.

The first midterm elections during a presidential term are a test that he/she/they/it usually fails. Democrats do particularly badly, since most Democrat voters are not aware of midterm elections of their House and Senate representatives. Heck, they don’t even know who their representatives are. The Democrats lost 64 House seats in the 2010 midterm when Barack Obama was president and 54 seats in the 1994 midterm when Bill Clinton was president.

That’s bad. Even the outmanned and outplayed Broncos in Superbowl XXIV lost by only 45.

This time, the Dems don’t even have politically competent Obama or Clinton. They instead are headed by a stupid, senile, hair-plugged, incompetent, tongue-tied, foolish President Lite whom Obama warned we should “never underestimate” in his ability to “f*ck things up.”

Two conservatives will join the three Supreme Court liberals in upholding discrimination against Asians

Harvard actively and obviously discriminates against Asians. To get admitted, Asians need an SAT score 140 points higher than whites and 450 points higher than blacks.

Harvard’s justification for this discrimination is almost as painful as the discrimination itself. Harvard says that the Asian applicants have poor personalities.

The way Harvard evaluates an applicant’s personality is not with any standardized test, but with an in-person interview by a bureaucrat – where it just so happens that the bureaucrat can take note of the applicant’s skin color

Asian applicants sued. The suit was in Boston before a federal judge appointed by President Obama. The judge sided with Harvard.

I was an engineer for Boeing – before they got woke

Back in your correspondent’s Version 2.3 or thereabouts, he was an engineer for Boeing. This was back in 1978-79.

My starting salary was $15,400. When I left Boeing to start my personal Version 3.0, my salary was still less than $17,000. My parents thought I was crazy to give that up and take on debt to go to law school.

Boeing was booming. Airlines were being de-regulated, airline travel was becoming less expensive while still being slightly sexy, and everyone wanted to go to Europe for the first time.

Several things about Boeing stick out in my mind. First, they didn’t compromise on quality. The airline customers could specify whatever bells and whistles they were willing to pay for — I worked on a few custom planes for Saudi princes that included frivolities like solid gold ashtrays — but the airworthiness of the plane was non-negotiable.

Democracy doesn’t work in tribal societies like Afghanistan – or America

The problem with “nation building” a place like Afghanistan is that it’s a collection of wildly different places and peoples. Three-quarters of the people still live in the countryside. They comprise about a dozen main tribes and countless smaller tribes. Many different languages are spoken. Two are official languages but the dominant one is not spoken by a quarter of the population.

It’s true that nearly all Afghans are Muslim. But a millennium of strife in the Middle East has driven home the point that there are Muslims and there are Muslims, and they like to war with one another. Their wars are typically over stupid things.

The Muslims are not alone in their religious wars. Look at the centuries of Christian war in Northern Ireland between Catholics and Protestants. Those are tribal wars founded on hate.

These tribes and their wars are not limited to religious strife, and also exist in societies we like to consider civilized. The clans of Scotland and rural England feuded for centuries and brought their feuding ways with them to American Appalachia. Remember the Hatfields and McCoys?

Laughing, snarking, lying Bloody Joe killed 12 brave marines and 60 innocent Afghans today

Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.

— Barack Obama

Biden has “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

— Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense under Barack Obama

Nobody’s being killed

— Joe Biden, a week ago today

Joe Biden recently learned a trick from Kamala. When he’s asked a legitimate question that he doesn’t want to answer, he laughs. This buys him time and maybe even avoids altogether the necessity for an answer. It also exhibits scorn for the questioner for his impertinence in asking the question.

Sometimes it works. But it works less well when the question is about human lives at stake.

Biden makes Baghdad Bob look good

A certain Iraqi official holding the post of (Dis)Information Minister made a name for himself in the second Iraq war against the west. That was the one where Saddam Hussein wound up hiding in a spider hole and the people of Iraq were finally freed of his tyranny.

It doesn’t matter what his real name was. He came to be called “Baghdad Bob.” As the western allies descended on Baghdad, Bob held frequent press conferences laden with colorful, comical but incorrect contentions:

“Our initial assessment is that [the allies] will all die.” That assessment proved inaccurate, to put it mildly.

“God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis.” Ditto. Continue reading

Joe Biden’s puppet strings are being pulled by …

No, it’s not the Kremlin. In fact, it’s not any foreign power. Any communications between the president and a foreign power would include people from the National Security Agency and other intelligence types. (I use the word “intelligence” loosely in connection with these buffoons.)

You might counter that Biden could be receiving his foreign instructions indirectly through someone with whom he has a private channel. Like his criminal, perverted, child-support-evading, lap-top-losing, drug-addicted son.

C’mon, man. Hunter would of course do anything for a foreign government or anyone else in exchange for some blow, and he could get The Big Guy to follow along by merely offering the usual 10% cut, but even today’s not-so-intelligence agencies know to monitor Hunter’s calls to foreigners.

The American president isn’t present, and that’s a problem

Scathing criticisms of Joe Biden’s disastrous cut-and-run in Afghanistan have been issued by even his media cheerleaders at CNN, NPR and the New York Times. Career diplomats including former Obama officials have publicly excoriated his administration for incompetence. Foreign leaders are baffled.

Only the Taliban is happy.

A withdrawal from Afghanistan may have been necessary, but it didn’t have to happen this way. Only 2,500 soldiers were there anyway – about the same as in Iraq. As in Iraq, this small number kept relative peace. The last American soldier killed in Afghanistan was a year and a half ago. That’s one more dead soldier than I’d like, but it’s a violent world and soldiers keeping the peace have a dangerous job.

Biden assured us just a month ago that this wouldn’t happen. He said the Afghan soldiers far outnumbered the Taliban, and there would be no “Saigon” moment where American embassy staff are helicoptered from the roof of the embassy as the barbarians bang down the gate.

But here we are, only a month later, and that’s roughly what is happening. It’s in part because Biden discontinued nearly all the air support that was key to the Afghan government’s military. The Taliban now own the entire country, and are threatening even the chaotic Kabul airport where Afghans are clinging to the outside of airplanes trying to take off. Hundreds or perhaps thousands of Americans may be trapped.
