Irrespective of how mentally diminished President Joe Biden is, you must be horrified by who waits within the wings ought to he depart workplace earlier than the expiration of his time period.
Sadly, one of many many penalties of Biden’s psychological decline is an impairment of judgment that manifests itself in such reckless selections as placing Vice President Kamala Harris in command of the border. It’s like making a colicky toddler the goalie of an expert hockey staff. If Biden have been extra alert, I might suspect it was his approach of looking for revenge towards Harris and those that foisted her on to his presidential ticket.
Harris has neither a clue nor a rudder on this critically vital situation, which by any truthful measure, now should be thought-about a disaster. She is a devoted progressive, and progressives are flagrantly open borders-oriented. However much more, she is a political opportunist and can say something to salvage her hemorrhaging popularity.
Thus, after all of the root-causes rhetoric and the castigation of anybody who correctly advocates even a modest degree of border enforcement, she informed migrants throughout a press convention Monday, “Don’t come right here.” “As considered one of our priorities, we’ll discourage unlawful migration,” she stated. “And I consider if you happen to come to our border, you’ll be turned again. Don’t come. Don’t come,” she continued. “The USA will proceed to implement our legal guidelines and safe our border.”
Maybe we should always be thankful for the whiplash if it means we’ll start to see a saner border coverage, however how can we presumably depend on the White Home to implement the border when it’s signaled in each possible approach that it’s ideologically against defending our sovereignty?
She might need thought she was shopping for herself time towards rising public concern over the border, however by mouthing these phrases, she positioned herself straight within the path of the leftist mobs who management her celebration’s energy heart. Following her feedback, the reliably weird Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stated it was “disappointing to see.” “First, looking for asylum at any U.S. border is a 100% authorized methodology of arrival,” she tweeted. “Second, the US spent a long time contributing to regime change and destabilization in Latin America. We are able to’t assist set somebody’s home on fireplace after which blame them for fleeing.” Who wants overseas enemies when home malcontents are within the highest ranges of workplace right here doing their bidding?
As a lot grief as Harris unwittingly introduced on herself along with her feedback, she wasn’t completed sabotaging herself. After the inevitable savaging that ensued, she feebly tried to speak her approach out of her issues in an NBC Information interview on Tuesday with Lester Holt, who requested her if she had plans to go to the border.
“We’re going to the border; we’ve been to the border,” Harris dishonestly replied. Uncharacteristically, Holt momentarily deviated from the standard mainstream media Democrat-protector function and reminded her she hadn’t been to the border. Harris snarkily replied via cackling lips, “And I haven’t been to Europe.”
It was amusing to observe White Home Press Secretary Jen Psaki scramble to rehabilitate Harris from her epic blunder. “What the vice chairman was merely conveying was that there’s extra to be completed, that we don’t have these programs in place but. It’s nonetheless a harmful journey as we’ve stated many instances from right here and from many boards earlier than. And we want extra time to get the work completed to make sure that asylum processing is the place it needs to be.” Translation: “What Harris meant was that migrants ought to cooperate with the Biden administration lengthy sufficient to permit us to handle this public relations catastrophe over our bungling of the border, and as soon as sufficient time has handed, we’ll present not solely airplanes to move illegals to sanctuary places in america however free limo rides as effectively.”
Harris now views calls for that she go to the border as “political video games” as a result of her actual job is to deal with the foundation causes of migration. That’s wealthy coming from the second highest accountable for a celebration that made a cottage business of exploiting picture ops on the border through the Trump administration. As for root causes, she might save herself a whole lot of time by confessing that she and Biden invited this catastrophe by sending an unmistakable message that their administration wouldn’t implement the southern border.
Poverty and tyranny and their penalties in Central America’s Northern Triangle aren’t the foundation causes of the present flooding of our borders, however they’re among the many root causes of why so many individuals there and elsewhere world wide would love to return to America. So perhaps one of the best course for this leftist administration is to maintain implementing insurance policies that may lead America into socialism, chapter, chaos, and tyranny, thereby discouraging migrants from selecting to return right here. I say this tongue in cheek, however not totally.
However Harris’ deal with root causes is problematic past simply being wrongheaded and counterproductive. It conjures up her to advocate the ever-present Democrat resolution for all issues: Throw cash at it. Along with different federal support to those poor nations, she needs U.S. taxpayers to donate $130 million to labor motion efforts in Mexico. Even when this weren’t only a cynical sop to labor unions in all places, the very concept that we are able to deliver complete nations out of poverty by throwing fish at them as an alternative of educating them to fish is painfully delusional.
I agree with Harris about one factor. Her bodily going to the border will clear up nothing, particularly since she is ideologically or ethically blinded to the true causes of this disaster. One can solely hope that sufficient People are catching on to this depressing show of incompetence at each nook of the White Home to make a distinction within the midterm elections.
