Is the Situation at the Border a National Emergency or Not? by The Elephant's Child


Another day and another vicious murder by an illegal immigrant in California, a sanctuary state. 300 illegals were apprehended at the Texas border, In Arizona, another bunch was caught with 160 pounds of meth and fentanyl. In Texas, there are 200 cases of mumps in detention. In February, the Border Patrol dealt with 600,000 illegals, the highest number in a decade. Illegals have been told that having a child with them, will help them to apply for amnesty. The child may or may not belong to the illegals, and once the illegals have applied for amnesty and get a court date (at what point they will disappear never to be seen again). The child or children will be circulated back across the border to help another group apply for amnesty. We have 300 dead Americans each week from heroin. 200,000 criminals are responsible of 100,000 assaults,30,000 sex crimes and 4,000 murders.

In our Congress, our elected representatives can’t seem to understand why President Trump would have the nerve to declare a National Emergency, and the arguments seem not to be about the plaintive cries from the Border Patrol for help, but about the niceties of national emergency declarations, and just who is in charge here.

If you feel the urge to comment, don’t comment on articles you have read, comment directly to your elected representatives. Go to or, and follow the directions to find your very own elected person. If you are, like me, represented entirely by Democrats, go find the person you want to influence. If it is your own rep, you can also comment at their office in your home state. They don’t particularly want to hear from you, but your attention matters, and they really do pay attention to the attention they get. They work for us, they just forget that until reminded. They have highly-paid cushy jobs and they want to be returned to office.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Behind the Scenes Story by The Elephant's Child


Daniel Henninger at the Wall Street Journal’s column today had a picture of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at the South by Southwest event in Austin.Texas on the 9th of March. His first sentence was brilliant:

Something called “socialism” is in the air. Should we worry? The answer is yes, if you can stop laughing.

That pretty much sums up the situation. When A O-C appeared on the scene, Republicans couldn’t get over the nuttiness of her comments. We couldn’t quite believe the things that were coming out of her mouth. I suspect that all the Republican attention alerted the media to someone with real ‘click bait’, and the more we paid attention, the more they gave her their attention and column space and news coverage. In other words, we created a monster. Does the fact that Republicans find her astonishing in her ignorance, mean more approval from the Democrats? Has their guaranteed distaste for anything conservative meant that they like anything that threatens us? Analyzing the Left is a task I have long assigned myself, but I’m not sure I’m getting anywhere.

Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is, quite literally, impossible. There is no possibility of replacing energy from fossil fuels with solar energy and wind energy. Nationally, with all the emphasis on solar energy, solar plants generated just 0.3% of U.S. power in spite of investment of millions of dollars and mandates that require solar panels in some areas. But I have explained several times previously the impossibility of Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. Just scroll down for any number of explanations. It is physically impossible. There is hot the possibility of enough alternative energy to replace fossil fuels, it would destroy the country financially (which is the goal for some), and little things like eating, heating our houses, transportation would all be impossible.

Frank Hawkins has investigated the “Rasputin” behind Ocasio Cortez at American Thinker. Shall we say “the plot thickens”? This seems to be one of those underground operations that sprouts all sorts of other organizations. It’s pretty clear that Nancy Pelosi has lost control of this group. Where it goes from here remains to be seen, but it is very troubling. Do read the whole article and watch the video, and see what you think.
