Democrats Cause Massive Increase in Desert and Drug Deaths


Don’t take my word for it. Listen to CNN and CBS. CNN reports that border deaths tripled over last year. CBS reports a nightmare increase in lethal drugs, and overdoses, directly connected to the Democrats controlling immigration policy. AND. Do not believe a word of supposed opposition spewed by the RepubliCANT party of Lyin’ Ryan, the Bush clan, California Republican House Minority “Leader” McCarthy, and McConnell. They all colluded in subverting President Trump’s attempt to keep the 2016 Republican Party’s promises and the much older post 9/11 legislative promise to build a wall. Remember that this year and next and strictly hold it against them and every candidate who does not vocally reject them. The death toll was entirely foreseeable. Everybody knows.

CNN’s Rosa Flores reports on the massive surge in border-crossing deaths. Understand, these are mostly horrible deaths of dehydration and heatstroke, with a few drowning deaths in canals. Special techniques have been developed to get fingerprints from sun-baked and bloated corpses. We do not get those disturbing details from CNN, but the bare facts are terrible in themselves.

A Different Focus: Briefing with Two Teams


“It would be a mistake, a mistake with terrible consequences, for any adversary to attempt to do us harm during this health crisis, or ever for that matter.” — National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien

“This is the United States military. You will not penetrate this country. You will not get past Jump Street. You’re not going to come in here and kill additional Americans. And we will marshal whatever assets are required to prevent your entry into this country to kill Americans.” — General Milley

President Trump brought two teams with him to the press room on April 1, 2o2o. The first team looked very different. The focus: stopping international criminal cartels from exploiting the pandemic to ramp up illegal drug shipments. President Trump had already identified the threat of increased drug addiction and overdoses caused by sudden economic despair, a lethal side effect of the prescription by Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx for battling the Chinese coronavirus. The president then riffed through his introductory remarks while the regular crew gathered backstage and entered for the familiar themes, and some really good questions.

Juneteenth: Emancipation Day


On June 19, 1865, Union Army Major General Gordon Granger read General Orders, Number 3, to the people of Galveston, Texas. It was two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation, but at last the words of freedom came to African-American slaves in Texas. This day became known as Juneteenth, and eventually became first an unofficial holiday and then a holiday recognized by some states.

General Granger wrote, in part:

The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor. The freedmen are advised to remain quietly at their present homes and work for wages. They are informed that they will not be allowed to collect at military posts and that they will not be supported in idleness either there or elsewhere.

Member Post


Alabama special election turnout points to a serious problem in the midterms and 2020 if President Trump does not lead his administration in focused action and messaging towards African Americans. He must peel off enough traditionally Democratic votes to help keep and expand his legislative majorities. Fortunately, President Donald Trump has had his heart and […]
