Summary

Images of thousands of illegal aliens, mostly from Haiti, camped under the international bridge in Del Rio, Texas, last September created a serious political problem for the Biden administration, which feared it would harm Democratic prospects in the 2022 midterm elections.

Despite the administration’s hostility to border enforcement, the need to make the problem go away caused the White House to decide to deport some of the illegal aliens back to Haiti. To secure Haiti’s approval, it made a deal with Dr. Ariel Henry, Haiti’s acting prime minister and acting president: Haiti would accept the deportees in exchange for the Biden administration allowing the acting president to cancel the upcoming elections and remain in power.

I didn’t think so. Preview Open

In 1991, Governor Schaefer of Maryland referred to his state’s Eastern Shore as a s**thouse. The Eastern Shore is a rural, Republican part of Maryland. Several people from the Eastern Shore loaded the backs of their pickup trucks with portable outhouses and drove around State Circle in Annapolis to protest the remark.  State circle surrounds […]

We don’t talk about coffee enough around here. Today I read a great article from Reason about coffee farming in Haiti that has lots of interesting aspects to discuss.  In Haiti, coffee grows on trees. Well, technically all coffee grows on trees. The brown beans that go into making your morning cup are actually the […]
