Sometimes It Really Helps If You Know What You Are Talking About by The Elephant's Child

Oh ha, ha, ha. Here is one of the best examples you will find of a conversation between a clueless Democrat member of the press and someone who actually knows what he is talking about. Democrats are all about feeeelings.

CBS’s  Margaret Brennan was sure she had an advisor to President Trump in a humiliating spot on Face the Nation, over the death of a seven year-old child in the custody of the Border Patrol. And not only that, but Republicans were going to take away vulnerable Americans’ health care! Steven Miller made mincemeat of the naive Margaret Brennan, and this is undoubtedly his last appearance on Face the Nation, but it was a good one!

Democrats want open borders, partly for illegal immigrants who will work hard for little money, doing the scut work in our economy, and partly for potential voters to sway elections and to be counted in the upcoming census, which so far – does not count citizens, but just bodies. Big numbers of bodies means they will get more representatives in the House of Representatives, because the House is based on population numbers. (California gives out voter registration with a drivers’ license, which makes vote fraud easier.)

You have heard the Democrats whining about the terrible unfairness of the Electoral College. The Senate has two senators for each state, no matter how small, to balance the big states’ domination in the House where the few really big states would run the house and the government if they had their way and the smaller or more rural states would find their votes useless. The Founders understood that human nature is often greedy and selfish and aimed to make the three branches of government provide checks on each other.

The Border Patrol is attempting, every day, to protect illegal immigrants from their own folly. If you follow the news from the border, you will be aware of the dead bodies found in some of the more remote areas on our side of the border. Illegals often abandoned by smugglers or ‘coyotes’ who have their pay already. Traffickers have made it clear to illegals hoping to get in, that having children will help their plea for asylum, so the kids may not even belong to the illegals they are with. The 7 year-old child was deprived of food and water for days, and though the Border Patrol helicoptered her to the nearest children’s hospital, was unable to save her life. The Border Patrol are not the bad guys. They save lives almost every day.

Customs and Border Protection reported that 294 illegal aliens died crossing our southern border in federal fiscal year 2017, which is an 11% drop from the previous year. This counts only the bodies discovered. There’s a lot of wild country on the border. New skeletons were discovered just this week.

Next, keep in mind that an unknown number die on the Mexican side of our shared border in equally remote and inaccessible locations, and are simply left as cadavers by their smuggling guides, never to be counted by officialdom.

Then, recollect that others almost certainly die on Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala, or on Guatemala’s northern border — or, indeed, anywhere along the route for the tens of thousands of Guatemalans, Salvadorans, Hondurans, and others who yearly attempt the trek. They are not to be found in that 294 figure; they are a part of the unacknowledged overhead of this constant illegal movement in human beings al norte.

Gallup just did a “world survey” that needs to be taken with a hefty dose of salt, indicating that approximately 750 million people around the world would like to migrate, and to no one’s surprise, the United States is the prime choice of destination. The numbers are meaningless, except as perhaps an indication of the numbers of people who are unhappy with the government of their own countries, which is interesting.
