One thing I have learned after years of observing the globalists and their cadre of bought-and-paid-for politicians is that the issue being hammered in the media is never the real issue or goal of any given program or policy.
Let me explain.
President Trump got in hot water after it was leaked to the media that he allegedly used some crude language to describe the Third World countries like Haiti, El Salvador and Somalia that send us tens of thousands of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees every year. In typical Trumpian fashion, he reportedly asked “Why do we have to take so many people from shithole countries?”
What he was trying to say of course was “do we really need more Somalis with knives looking for Americans to chop up, or Salvadoran MS-13 gang members looking to shoot folks in the street?”
We’re talking about guys like Dahir Ahmed Adan, who stabbed 10 shoppers at the Crossroads Center Mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota, in September 2016 after first asking if they were Muslim, or Abukar Ibrahim, who used a machete to hack a 73-year-old woman up just last week in Shelburne, Vermont.
Mr. Ibrahim is 32 years old and has been in the U.S. for 13 years, yet he still needed an interpreter at his arraignment hearing this week. How is that for assimilation?
Others such as Sayfullo Saipov from Uzbekistan choose to drive rented trucks into crowds of unsuspecting people in New York City, then remark to emergency personnel with great satisfaction that he had accomplished his life’s mission. [I am not being sarcastic, this is actually what he said, read it here in the NY Post.]
These are the type of people you get when you place the bar for entry so low, welcoming migrants from the worst places on Earth based on something as flimsy as chain migration — “I deserve to come to America because my uncle lives there!”
But the media heard these blunt words from Trump and immediately went berserk.
CNN set about calling every foreign leader it could find who would pummel our president. Words like “shameful” and “divisive” were among their favorites.
He had violated their rules of political correctness by again placing American interests first. It was the lead story on all the major network and cable news shows Thursday night and into Friday [Update: It’s now Saturday and the major media are still talking about this].
How dare the president suggest that the U.S. start accepting immigrants based on what they can contribute to American society!
How dare he exercise U.S. sovereignty to choose immigrants who will not only work for a living but possess the type of skills that will allow them to provide for their large families – meaning something other than a job at Walmart, a cab driver at the airport, the local meatpacking plant or the maid crew at the Holiday Inn!
We already have too many of those types of immigrants and it’s the middle class that must subsidize everything from their grocery bills to their housing, their use of public transportation, Medicaid health plans and the list goes on. Not to mention the cost of educating their kids.
Of course we all know that President Obama also used plenty of expletives and foul language during White House meetings, but rarely was there a leak to the media. And even if there was, the media, rather than rising up in self-righteous indignation, always protected him from public scrutiny.
When it comes to the so-called journalists at ABC, NBC, CNN and MSNBC, the hypocrisy is dripping from their perfectly white smiles.
When leftists make their argument in favor of open borders and mass migration from the Third World, they always couch their talking points in humanitarian language.
They’ll talk about America’s “unique role” and “responsibility” as a refuge for the persecuted people of the world, even as they ignore the plight of the most persecuted segment of all – Christians living in communist and Islamic states. [See Open Doors 2018 list of the world’s worse persecutors and you will find that, of the top 10, nine are Islamic and one is communist].
The unvarnished truth is that the globalist/U.N. agenda of mass migration and creating a borderless world has nothing to do with humanitarianism. It’s about redistributing global wealth and doing it on the backs of the hard-working American middle class, whom the elites have always detested for their independent ways.
When globalists see a downtrodden refugee family – whether from Somalia or Sudan, El Salvador or Guatemala – they are interested in one thing: “How can we use them?”
If the globalist is Democrat, he or she is excited by the fact that these refugees will likely live a life of dependency, as will their children and their children’s children, and that translates into generations of straight-ticket votes for politicians with a “D” next to their name.
If the globalist is a Republican, he or she looks at these poor refugees and sees one thing, cheap labor for the donor class who are heavily invested in the meatpacking industry or maybe a chain of hotels or some other enterprise that doesn’t require its lower-rung workers to speak English or have advanced job skills.
So if President Trump wants to know why we take so many immigrants from what he calls “shithole countries,” the answer is readily apparent. Look around the room, Mr. President, and into the eyes of the globalists in Congress and, dare I say, in your own cabinet. Don’t pay attention to what the globalists in both parties say about the splendors of “diversity” and wonders of multi-culturalism. In the end it’s all about the power and the money.
Republicans love money. Democrats love money and power.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t some Republicans who rise above that fray or even a few Democrats who honestly believe the humanitarian platitudes they peddle to the public and the lapdog media. But they are the exceptions, not the rule.
So we’ve covered money and power.
The final peg in this unholy trinity is control.
Globalists crave control over the population they govern. What better way to justify more security checkpoints, gun-control laws, warrantless wiretapping and invasive sneak-and-peak technologies than to import millions of migrants from Islamic countries known to harbor terrorists and supporters of terrorists?
Have you ever wondered why there is virtually no terrorism in Japan, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic? Look at their immigration policies and you will find your answer.
Congress every year debates whether to renew the freedom-destroying, privacy-wrecking FISA legislation that allows the government to snoop on your emails, text messages and phone calls by getting a phony “warrant” from a secret court that is known to issue such permission with a rubber stamp.
In fact, those most likely to be protected from such government intrusion are the very ones who most deserve to be monitored and tracked – the migrants who are committing 99 percent of the terrorism around the world. When your rights are trampled upon by an overzealous government, don’t look to the ACLU, CAIR, Southern Poverty Law Center, et al to go to bat for you in the courts and the media. They are not your friends.
So there you have it. Now you know why we have insane immigration policies like “chain migration,” refugee resettlement and the annual “diversity visa lottery” in which migrants from the Third World with no skills and no intention of assimilating are invited to come and live in our cities and towns, where they will be “welcomed” by a progressive mayor and immediately signed up for Medicaid and food stamps, placed in subsidized housing, their children enrolled in public schools. It’s not because they offer anything of value to our economy or our culture or even that we wish to help bring them up by their bootstraps. This isn’t about altruism. It’s about how the two political parties that run our country can use them to their advantage, the taxpayer be damned.
