Bipartisan Washington Gives America the Middle Finger—Again

Is America a sovereign country? You would never know it from how politicians in Washington behave. With an invasion reaching a tipping point at our southern border, members of both parties spent the week before Christmas scrambling to pass “immigration reform” that would reward illegal immigrants with citizenship. Mercifully, their efforts failed. 

But they didn’t stop there. Then they congratulated themselves for passing an “omnibus” bill that is twice the length of War and Peace, and invited a comedian in a G.I. Joe costume to shake down taxpayers to support “democracy” in Ukraine.

Zelenskyy is Winston Churchill, they said, over and over and over again. They can’t help adding insult to injury. What they mean, of course, is that nobody is allowed to question what billions of U.S. tax dollars are doing in Ukraine. You wouldn’t say no to Winston Churchill, would you? 

There goes another $45 billion to prop up Biden’s puppet regime in Eastern Europe. As an early Christmas gift, Americans have also received millions of new neighbors with no skills and no English from every corner of the globe. And, oh, criminal referrals for the Orange Man! Hallelujah! 

Unlike the regime’s narrative about January 6, the border crisis is an actual attack on the country, not some momentary eruption of passion from a mob. As a result of the Biden Administration’s willful negligence, a pandemic-era public health policy called Title 42 is the thin reed holding back a human tsunami. The dam was about to break on Wednesday, the very day Congress invited “Winston Churchill” to speak, before the Supreme Court stepped in.

In El Paso, there are 20,000 immigrants waiting to pour into town. That is a small army. Am I really comparing poor asylum seekers to Russian soldiers? An invasion is an invasion. Do the immigrants, many of whom are young men of fighting age, become any less threatening because they are unarmed? 

The Capitol protesters were unarmed, and they were cleared out within hours. The immigrant invasion, on the other hand, is neverending. It is an immense strain on our public resources, it brings dangerous people into our communities, it brings fentanyl which has killed thousands and thousands of Americans, and most profoundly, it is completely changing the political and cultural landscape of our country for the worse, and all by design.

The much vaunted “asylum seeker” has no understanding of or desire to adopt American culture. He is looking for economic opportunity, or, as it is often said, “fleeing poverty.” But America has no obligation to help. Compared to America, most of the world is poor. If we allowed every person in the world “fleeing poverty” into our country, we wouldn’t have a country anymore. Americans have always respected the pursuit of wealth. It’s in the preamble of our Declaration of Independence. But the Declaration also makes mention that America is “one people,” not merely an economic zone.

Significantly, the Declaration also mentions a time when necessity forces “one people” to “dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another.” They were speaking here of Britain, a nation without which America would not exist. The way our politicians speak today, you would think Ukraine, not Britain, is where we derived our glorious language and our noble political principles. (For one thing, Ukraine certainly has a lot more Nazis.) 

But America is not Ukraine, and it is not an unlimited credit line for special interests. Someone should explain that very slowly to Bill Kristol and Joe Biden and all of their friends.
