Lying by Omission or It’s What They Don’t Say that Counts


No one will argue that the surge of illegal aliens at the southern border is a disaster. And in the face of Joe Biden’s trying to mandate the Covid-19 vaccine to American citizens, he’s giving the migrants a pass. Especially interesting to me was\ the presentation of the data (or the lack of transparent data) for assessing whether the influx of illegal aliens (who are not mandated to receive the vaccine) is a problem for the country. The Delta variant in particular is especially contagious. But regarding the unvaccinated migrants, no one seems to care.

So I have been parsing articles that ridicule or understate the spread of Covid-19 by migrants. And as long as we are flooded with migrants, I believe we should be very concerned about the spread of the disease. I’d like to share what I’m learning from those people who prefer to play down the presence of Covid-19 in the illegal alien population, the lack of testing, and the lack of vaccinations. Remember, these people are free to travel wherever they wish or are being sent all over the country without notifying governors in advance.

The illegals are demonstrating “vaccine hesitancy” when offered the vaccine, even though Covid-19 cases are surging in the detention centers:

The second of a series looking into Biden’s first few weeks in office. It ain’t pretty. Watching the Democratic Presidential primary debates of 2019-20, it wasn’t hard to find the “uh oh” moment when you knew something would not end well. And it came early – June 2019 – during an MSNBC debate moderated by Savannah Guthrie. […]

Just recently, there was a horrible accident near San Diego, CA, where an SUV crashed into a semi-truck carrying gravel.  That SUV was carrying 25 people.  Thirteen of them were killed.  The SUV was a Ford Expedition, which I believe should carry a maximum of 8-9 people.  The California Highway Patrol is being very cagey […]

Iranian Citizens Detained on US Southwest Border


San Luis Arizona Local MapCustoms and Border Patrol announced that Border Patrol agents in the Yuma, AZ, sector captured a group of 11 Iranian citizens on Monday evening, February 3. The illegal aliens were walking across a bridge in the border town of San Luis. The threat across our southern border has long been far more than “migrant workers” undermining US worker wages and black market drugs affecting both public health and public safety (due to extralegal business enforcement by drug gangs).

The Border Patrol has long used an informal acronym, OTM, “other than Mexican,” naming a significant border security concern. We should not be surprised at Iranians testing our response, since the uniparty of Democrats and RepubliCan’ts have so clearly signaled their all-out political war on us and their determination to get back to normal politics, crushing poor and lower-middle-class employment and wages.

The terrorist and infiltration threat is not new. Indeed, Hezbollah, an Iranian regime proxy force, has been reported in South and Central America since the 1990s. President Trump and his constitutionally faithful Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, as distinct from the dishonorable Rex Tillerson, who joined to subvert the will of the American electorate, made significant progress in giving our neighbors to the south the courage and motivation to openly move against Hezbollah in the region. We can fully expect all of that good work to be discarded, as the Democrats and Chamber of Commerce Republicans look to get back to Obama’s Middle East policies.

Build “the Wall”

Real walls matter, so long as they are observed and backed by effective enforcement of boundary rules. This is true for the most modest private property and for the most powerful nation. We have seen several encouraging developments in American national sovereignty and regional security in the past week or so. These developments ranged from at least a temporary green light for border wall construction, to an important power in the hemisphere declaring Hezbollah a terrorist group.

US & Guatemala Sign “Safe Third Country” Agreement to Curb False Claims of Asylum


President Trump oversaw a signing ceremony Friday in the Oval Office between Guatemala and the United States for a “safe third country” agreement on asylum seekers. The New York Post reports:

The “safe third country” agreement would require migrants, including Salvadorans and Hondurans, who cross into Guatemala on their way to the US to apply for protections in that country instead of at the southern border [of the United States]. … The two countries had been negotiating an agreement for months, and Trump threatened Wednesday to place tariffs on Guatemala if it didn’t cut a deal.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast my sweeties! Come to refill the old political obsession tank? Here to procure that pithy but deep diatribe fix? Well you are in the right place! This is edition number 223 and we call it the “No Match Podcast” with your absolutely unmatchable hosts, Right Coast radio guy Todd Feinburg and Left Coast AI guy Mike Stopa (the handsome one). This week we have our dear friend and special guest Jessica Vaughan, she of the Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies, to discuss with us the return (did I hear anyone say “Hallelujah”???) of the No Match letters that are now going out to every employer in America who submits an I9 form for even one employee whose name and social security number do not match what is in the Social Security database.

Jessica tells us that many of these no matches are just…typos! Many are just…name changes! And many are (shhhh) illegal aliens either using stolen or fabricated SS#’s. This is where the actual problem is. The Democrats know it. The Chamber of Commerce knows it. And they are screaming that these letters are going out and good lord that is a good thing!

Welcome friends and lovers to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 219. (Whoa Nellie!) It is the Homeland Insecurity edition of the show with your rock-solid hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This week, rumblings (at last) in the department of homeland security and Kirstjen Nielsen is (at last!) out, out, OUT!!! She of the Bush ideology, the foot dragging, love-those-dreamers persuasion. And now in charge (for the moment) it appears to be the Red Cross Knight Stephen Miller. Is it possible that the Trump Administration is finally going to actually get serious about the issue that won him the White House? Hope so.

Then, we discuss the Dems plan for a nationwide $15 minimum wage. Oh how jolly. I’m sure that will go over really big in Mississippi. Good luck.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number 202!!! it is the Tear Jerker edition of the show with you sob-sister hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa.

This week, the wave crested, the migrant invasion massed to the border, threw their handful of projectiles and, with a tiny little burst of caustic gas were repelled by the good guys. Meanwhile, the media continues to make the migrant rabble (overwhelmingly composed of young men) into a march of the saints. They squeeze every scene and every anecdote for every pitiful tear they can get. Because they are colluding with all the other powerful forces in America to get Americans to say: “oh, hell….just let them in after all!!!”

Me and Brett and the Aliens


It happened sometime during the summer of 1997. My recollection of the events is a little bit fuzzy because the memory itself is now old enough to buy a drink, and I never bothered to write it down … besides, who would write something like this down? It might prove embarrassing later.

At any rate, that was the summer between my high school graduation and starting college, and I was working as an intern in the lab at my father’s office. My folks had left for the week on a trip and taken my younger sister with them, so I was watching the house by myself. After I got home that night (again, I can’t recall if it was a Monday … but whatever) I went about my business of sorting out the animals and fixing some food. That’s when I got an unexpected knock on our door.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for August 1, 2018 it is number 186!!! and we call it the “Illegal Printer” edition of the show. We are your 3D printed hosts – totally within the law – radio guy Todd Feinburg and A.I. guy Mike Stopa here, as every week, to read between the lines, dive into the text and explain to you the fine print of the events (some political, some not) of the day.

This week we give a brief account of California burning to the ground which, if you live here like I do, is pretty unfunny. And then we launch into our two topics. This week, we consider the Harvard-Harris poll, recently released, showing that the primary issue of concern to 38% of the electorate heading toward the 2018 midterms is illegal immigration. 51% of conservatives place it at number 1. 36% of swing voters do.

A Rose by Any Other Name


The Justice Department has instructed its lawyers to stop calling illegal aliens “undocumented immigrants,” and instead to use the actual legal terminology of, well, “illegal aliens.” (Apparently “unauthorized aliens” is also acceptable.)

This is a little bit like Attorney General Loretta Lynch telling FBI Directory James Comey to refer to the Hillary Clinton investigation as a “matter,” rather than calling it what the FBI always calls an investigation, which is, unsurprisingly, an “investigation.”

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 […]

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 169 (!!!) it’s the Corruption on Campus edition of the show with your hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist turned artificial intelligence bot Mike Stopa. This week we are happy to invite Mark Bauerlein back to the show with us!

We will talk with Mark about topic number one, which is the Big Lie that takes place on campus regarding racial equality. UPenn Law professor Amy Wax recently remarked (among other things) that “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a black graduate student in the top quarter of the class and rarely, rarely in the top half.” Mark penned a fascinating column in the Weekly Standard about the Penn Law faculty taking up pitchforks and torches and launching a carpet bombing attack on the 65 year old professor (how’s that for a mixed metaphor?!?).

The left wants to take guns of the streets, but not illegal aliens, even when they commit murder. They want to do extensive background checks on anyone who wants to legally purchase a gun, but not anyone who wants to legally enter this country.  They demand all gun owners take safety courses and prove competence, […]

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast, number 163, for February 22, 2018, it’s the California Dreamers edition of the show with your faithful hosts, Todd Feinburg, radio guy and Mike Stopa, nanophysicist. This week we explore two very juicy topics that will get you furious at the riggers and the schemers. First, California, according to a report released by the Census Department, now has the highest poverty rate in the United States – just edging Arizona. The main stream media appears to be totally flummoxed as to how that could happen. Isn’t California liberal *enough*??? Don’t they tax and redistribute more energetically than any state in the nation? What could possibly have gone wrong? It couldn’t have anything to do with, you know, the fact that they import poverty from Latin America at record setting levels, could it?

And speaking of importing poverty from Mexico and beyond, how does it stand now with the Dreamers that the latest push for Comprehensive Immigration Reform a.k.a. illegal alien amnesty has gone nowhere in the Senate? The Dreamers are now saying that they cannot accept amnesty if it means that their parents have to go back to where they came from. Alas, no one is yet demanding that they do so…but some day perhaps.

Millenial Onanistic Crayfish


It appears that carnage of the culture war has creeped into the crooked world of crustacean concupiscence, as millenial mutant malacostracae marmorkrebs march from Madagascar to Malmö. It is a tale of tails, of invasions of illegal arthropods, and cloning crayfish outcompeting their more cautious cousins. You see, these pestilential parthenogenic pleocyematae progeny did first appear in a pet shop in Germany, these 25 years past, and their great profligacy permitted their apportioning to appreciably distant domains, where, bored of their endless and otherwise uninteresting aquatic devourings, their owners discarded their unwanted decapods in ways unwonted in innocent waters, and now the fecund flitters are forcibly fanning out the world over.

Now, you may ask what’s so bad about these crayfish? It appears the carapaced critters embody the worst stereotypes of the entire culture war into one marbled menace:

  1. They are Millenials: Having been spawned within the last 25 years, and so come of age during the self-esteem nonsense, the internet, and the endless need for self-affirmation.
  2. They reject male and female labels: And why not? They can reproduce entirely asexually, in endless clones of themselves. No need for labels here. They were Born Hatched this Way!
  3. As Perfect Feminists, they don’t even need males: Yes, these mudbugs have achieved what should be the feminist nirvana. They have created a world where males are entirely unnecessary. I think it’s rather symbolic, though, that crayfish are notoriously cannibalistic, as their world is truly one that will devour its own.
  4. They never date, never get married, and always live in their mother’s fishtank (until she eats them, which opens some interesting Oedipal issues), onanistically “enjoying” BBC documentaries rather than getting out into the real stream, meeting other crayfish, or asserting themselves as mature adults.
  5. They are illegal aliens:  As such, they are taking away decent bottom-feeding jobs from other, more deserving native-born bottom feeders, doing the jobs that native-born can’t or won’t do: Seriously – these mutants can directly digest cellulose, something most other decapods can’t do without the aid of bacterial assists. Since they don’t need to actually meet any others of their kind to spawn, they’ve got a higher fertility rate than any native-born species.

So, yes, our culture war has reached even into the animal kingdom, and has polluted the depths of the muddy streams, the world over. It is fitting that it should all be symbolized so neatly in a Millenial Onanistic Arthropod.

We celebrate the SCOTUS ruling that, to no sane person’s surprise, the suspension of President Trump’s ban on travel from “six predominantly Muslim countries” was an absurd invasion by judicial activists into the blatantly Executive functions of the government. This is, as you have guessed, the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast, episode 128, with our guest Jessica Vaughan from the Center for Immigration Studies.

(Apologies that this episode has some serious unbalance to the audio – we will be improving the technology in the coming weeks. Thanks for your patience).

Trump’s Greatest Achievement


Programming note. On this week’s upcoming Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast, Jessica Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, my former co-author and current friend will tell us about the status of immigration enforcement in America and how things look now compared to one year ago. The podcast will be posted Tuesday evening. Listen in! (Got a question to ask Jessica? Leave a comment below).

The most positive consequence of the Trump Administration so far – and it hasn’t been nearly as positive as it could be – is the widespread reevaluation of illegal immigration, its impact on our economy and culture, and the question of how (and not if) the laws of the nation should be best enforced.

Heretofore the principal argument against enforcing the laws on the books has been that it was an impossible task. The results of ICE and Border Patrol’s conspicuous (though by no means massive) arrest and deportation policies and their influence on the inflow of illegal aliens through the southern border have essentially demolished that argument – and this is before any workplace enforcement has been initiated at all.

Here is a fantastic bit of good news, one that makes me feel safer because it seems we are headed in the right direction, now that President Trump has removed Obama’s shackles on Immigration law enforcement. Headline: Arrests of Illegal Criminals Jumps 250% In One Week Preview Open
