The president referenced the number of walls existing or under construction around the world recently….which of course in itself won’t change any minds on whether one along the US southern border is appropriate. Surprisingly, even in the hostile press world, it was admitted walls are a big phenomenon, not just a flaky medieval idea. But […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America wince at many of the final polls showing Democrats with the momentum in several key races. They also wonder why Republicans have not spent most of their time and money discussing the strength of the economy instead of more polarizing issues like the caravan. And they unload on Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson for mocking Texas GOP congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw for wearing an eye patch and saying, “I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.”

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are enraged that someone would send explosive devices to the Obamas, Clintons, CNN, and others and hope that those responsible for threatening or attacking public figures – or anyone else – are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They’re also glad to see Indiana Republican Senate hopeful Mike Braun either closing in on Sen. Joe Donnelly or even taking the lead. They slam MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and others for definitively declaring that there’s no evidence of criminals being part of the thousands of Central Americans headed towards the U.S. border when there is evidence to the contrary. And they weather the final attack ads aimed at their favorite teams ahead of Sunday’s Bears-Jets game.

Welcome dysphorics, welcome to the land of normalcy – the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast. By number 197! (O.M.G.!!) By date? October 24, 2018. By name? The Immigration Dysphoria Podcast, and, by hosts, Todd Feinburg, east coast radio guy and Mike Stopa, west coast AI guy!

This week we discuss the onslaught, the tsunami, the coming hordes. Yes, another army of illegal aliens has decided that, basically, we are their Daddy. They want in, gol dern it. They are bangin on our door. We got stuff. They want our stuff. And who is in here trying to help them? Can you say C-H-A-M-B-E-R! Another name for American slime. Trump has sold out to the fat-assed, business first Republican traitors. What does that mean for the invasion? We discuss.

After another round of vicious third-party ads surrounding this Sunday’s Bears-Jets game, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are cautiously pleased to see registered Republicans showing up to vote early in bigger numbers than Democrats in several key states. They also shake their heads as Democrats duck and dodge questions about how they would handle the thousands of people heading to our southern border and demanding to enter instead of going through legal channels. And they shudder as more details emerge in the murder and disposal of Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi elements in Turkey.

That the country you are ‘fleeing’ is a stinking cesspool of corruption and poverty. The United States did not make your country what is now—YOU DID! Either by voting in politicians who used their office to rob the poor and inflict injury upon its population, or because they promised ‘free’ stuff, or used fear and […]

How to Use the Vulnerable to Win Elections – 101 Just a month before the U.S. mid-term elections, someone by the name of Bartolo Fuentes started a caravan to head to the U.S. border through Mexico. Starting with just a handful, it has grown to thousands. On October 16th. According to Reuters: Preview Open

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud the Justice Department for prosecuting a Treasury Department employee for giving sensitive information to the media. They’re also pleasantly surprised to see Mexico getting serious about screening the caravan of Hondurans hoping to reach the United States. And they slam Twitter for it’s absurd double standards, as conservatives get suspended or banned on a regular basis but Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan gets no punishment for referring to Jews as “termites.”

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-43945522 It, or some vestage of it, has reached the border. I can’t find now where I was reading average-American comments over the weekend – I think somewhere on Facebook – but I was amazed at the anger and resentment towards this event. Comments centered around how most of the “asylum seekers” were men, not […]

Scott Adams discusses how Trump’s response to the caravan is brilliant. He points out that having the military permanently installed at the border would be expensive, but necessary. (It is necessary as a permanent solution as long as The American Left continues to state that these caravans will be permanent.) Then Adams mentions that a […]

The caravan of would-be illegal immigrants making its way to the US border might as well have “Vote Trump 2020” banners waving overhead. Kausha Luna of the Center for Immigration Studies has the background.
