Biden Administration Caught Coordinating Illegal Crossings with Mexican Government: Report

The good news is that our southern border isn’t actually wide open everywhere like you right-wing whackos keep saying. The bad news is that record numbers of illegal immigrants are crossing the Rio Grande at Matamoros in a carefully orchestrated effort between the Biden administration and the government of Mexico.

I guess I’m one of those right-wing whackos — and if not, I certainly became one after finding this report for you.

The Center for Immigration Studies reported a real shocker on Thursday concerning a strange sight on the Mexican side of the border at Matamoros, across from Brownsville, Texas. There, “large crowds” of immigrants could be seen, “fully prepared to swim over well-worn crossing spots to Brownsville – but seemingly held back by unarmed Mexican immigration officials.”

“What,” you might ask, “were they waiting for?”

In recent days, according to CIS, up to 3,000 illegals have crossed into Brownsville each day. “At some sort of signal from the Mexican immigration officers, a group of about 100-150 from the crowd would suddenly stand in unison and rush down the riverbank, past the immigration officers, and swim over to America.” Then there would be a pause until the next group of soon-to-be-illegals got their signal.

“It turns out that this pattern was far from happenstance,” wrote CIS, and after asking several officials on the Mexican side what was going on, they “learned that President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has been coordinating these mass swims with Mexico’s immigration service, INM, at high levels on an encrypted WhatsApp channel.”

The Mexican officers claimed that their superiors were communicating with U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials about when Mexican border control should signal immigrants to start swimming. USCBP wanted Mexico to control the flow of migrants “not because such crossings are illegal and should be blocked and obstructed, but only until the Americans had finished processing the last batch.”

I wasn’t able to independently confirm CIS’s claims and no other outlet I’ve found is reporting a similar story. But the CIS report is a perfect fit with the Biden administration’s two-year-old unofficial policy of pretending to solve the border crisis — remember when Biden put Kamala Harris in charge? — while letting in maximum numbers of illegals.

So when Presidentish Joe Biden admits that there’s chaos at the border, understand that at least in Matamoros, it appears to be a carefully controlled chaos — orchestrated with Mexican officials who probably can’t believe their own good luck.

Biden’s Intransigence Pushes America Closer to Default As he considers an unconstitutional end run around Congress.

The day of reckoning, when the United States runs out of money to pay its bills, is approaching fast, as early as the beginning of June. Yet the Biden administration continues to play politics, blaming the Republicans for bringing the country to the brink of default. Do your constitutional duty, administration officials admonish the Republicans and raise or suspend the debt ceiling without any conditions. 

 After months of refusing to negotiate, President Biden finally hosted a meeting at the White House on May 9th with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader Hakim Jeffries, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.  

 Following the meeting, President Biden spoke to the press with no progress to report. He reiterated his refusal to negotiate a deal that would couple a debt ceiling increase or suspension with agreed-upon spending cuts at the same time. “I told congressional leaders that I’m prepared to begin a separate discussion about my budget and spending priorities, but not under the threat of default,” the president said. “We need to take the threat of default off the table.”  

 In separate remarks to reporters summing up his impression of the meeting, Speaker McCarthy said that he “didn’t see any new movement.” 

 The Democrat-controlled Senate meanwhile has done nothing to advance its own debt ceiling bill.  

 President Biden and the congressional leaders agreed to meet again on May 12th. Their staff will meet as well. Expect continued intransigence from President Biden and his Democrat allies in Congress. 

 Indeed, the White House continues to demagogue the debt ceiling issue. As evidence of the Biden White House’s bad faith, it has grossly distorted the contents of the House bill, which its disinformation agents pejoratively call The Default on America Act.  

 The House bill, entitled the Limit, Save, Grow, Act of 2023, is the only bill approved by a chamber of Congress that would avoid default. It allows an increase in the debt ceiling of as much as $1.5 trillion to avoid imminent default along with cuts in spending and green energy tax breaks. These cuts are intended to limit the future growth of the national debt. Speaker McCarthy has been consistent in opening the door to good faith negotiations so long as the debt ceiling and budget cuts are considered together.  

 But President Biden is not interested in negotiating. Instead, the White House is trying to scare the American people with lies about what programs the House bill would cut as the condition for agreeing to raise or suspend the debt ceiling. The White House is lying, for example, when it claims that the House debt ceiling bill contains cuts to veterans’ benefits. It does not. The White House also raises the specter that the House bill would strip nutrition assistance from women and children and would jeopardize food assistance for older adults. That charge too is misleading.  

  The White House did tell the truth that the House debt ceiling bill reverses President Biden’s executive order providing debt relief to higher education students, saving $400 billion. Republicans do not believe that it is fair to shift the cost of such debt that benefits a privileged group of Americans to all American taxpayers. 

 The White House cites studies estimating that a brief default could lead to a loss of nearly 2 million jobs and that a protracted default could lead to a loss of almost 8 million jobs. But the impasse that could lead to default is the fault of President Biden and of his congressional Democrat allies. It is up to President Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to move the ball forward to prevent default and the resulting loss of jobs that the White House claims it is so worried about.  

 Instead, the Biden administration is considering an end run around the debt ceiling that would call for declaring Congress’s debt ceiling to be legally invalid, ignoring the ceiling altogether, and continuing to borrow whether Congress acts or not. Several progressive law professors including Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe, whom President Biden said has advised him “for a long time,” have recommended this course of action. If President Biden follows this recommendation, he would trigger a constitutional crisis by trashing the separation of powers. Even he admitted that the issue would have to be “litigated.” 

 By unilaterally declaring the congressionally mandated debt limit itself to be legally invalid, the executive branch would be usurping the judicial power of the nation’s courts to interpret the law, including the Constitution. By continuing to borrow above the debt ceiling without congressional approval, the executive branch would be usurping the explicit legislative power of Congress to “borrow money on the credit of the United States.”   

 Congress has used this legislative authority to cap the size of the federal debt and to raise the cap numerous times for more than a century. Congress has not delegated to the president his own authority to raise or suspend the congressionally mandated debt ceiling under any circumstances.     

Not to be thwarted by the bedrock constitutional principle of separation of powers, however, Professor Tribe wrote a recent New York Times op-ed article outlining his ideas to get around this obstacle. He argued that the president’s duty to faithfully execute the laws includes the power to disregard one law – in this case, the debt ceiling – to supposedly save “all the spending laws Congress has enacted.” (Emphasis in the original)   In other words, the law professor upon whom President Biden relies for advice believes that the president is entitled to choose the laws that he decides are valid and to violate or ignore those he decides are invalid. The progressive Left’s dream of dismantling America’s constitutional republic on the way to the one-man rule would be that much closer to fulfillment. 

 President Biden told the press that he was considering the option of invoking the 14th Amendment to the Constitution as a basis for acting unilaterally, which would rely on the 14th Amendment’s Public Debt Clause. The pertinent sentence in Section 4 states: “The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.” 

Invoking this clause of the 14th Amendment to justify continued unilateral borrowing by the Biden administration past the current debt ceiling is complete “malarkey,” to use one of President Biden’s favorite words.   

 Section 4 of the 14th Amendment was drafted in the context of validating or voiding debts incurred during the Civil War. The focus was on validating debts incurred in putting down the rebellion while declaring that debts incurred in supporting the rebellion and claims for the loss or emancipation of any slave were null and void. 

The author of an article examining the original meaning of the phrase “[t]he validity of the public debt . . . shall not be questioned” in the Public Debt Clause wrote that it should be interpreted narrowly. It “was understood at the time of ratification to be technical language prohibiting direct governmental debt repudiation only,” the author concluded from his exhaustive historical research.  

 The bill passed by the House of Representatives that raised the debt ceiling in conjunction with required cuts in spending and tax breaks does not repudiate or question any portion of the existing government debt. By no stretch of the imagination does the 14th Amendment give the president the power to ignore the existing debt ceiling and order his Treasury Department to continue borrowing without congressional authorization. 

 A recent poll asked Americans whether they prefer the Republican House’s approach of linking a debt ceiling increase with spending cuts or the Biden administration’s “clean” approach that would raise the debt ceiling without any required spending cuts. The result was that “50% select the House’s bill requiring spending cuts, while 25% would prefer a debt ceiling bill without requirements for spending cuts included.” 

 In the past, Mr. Biden has negotiated debt ceiling increases in combination with spending cuts in his capacity both as a senator and vice president. By refusing to do so now, the White House is manufacturing a crisis and engaging in demagoguery to try and score political points at the expense of the American people. But many Americans are catching on as President Biden’s approval ratings plummet.

The Soros Activist at the Heart of California’s $800 Billion Slave Reparations

George Soros succeeds in turning black people against each other.

Citizens Club of Springfield, IL Conversation with IL Supreme Court Justice Lisa Holder White

In 2021, the Equal Justice Institute celebrated a settlement with the University of California in which the system agreed to stop using SAT and ACT test scores, objective merit-based metrics, in college admissions, until 2025. The racialist lawsuit claimed that test scores violate the California Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause as “indicators” of race.

The “SAT is a barrier to equal opportunity”, Lisa Holder, a counsel with the Equal Opportunity Institute, claimed.

Like a lot of destructive leftist activists, Lisa Holder received a Soros Justice Fellowship from the radical billionaire’s Open Society Foundation. The similarity in the names of the Equal Justice Society and Soros’ Open Society Foundation is more than strictly coincidental as Soros was one of the EJS’ founding donors.

Beyond drawing six figures in compensation from the Equal Justice Society, Lisa Holder has her own law practice that focuses on racial issues and occasionally draws a check for teaching at UCLA.

Holder is also a member of California’s Reparations Task Force which has proposed to bankrupt the state and its taxpayers with as much as $800 billion in racial reparations in a state that was never a slave state. Among the various aging machine politicians (along with Kamala’s minister) who staff the task force, she may be the most important and effective racial campaigner on it.

Lisa Holder had fought to end California’s ban on racial discrimination through affirmative action in a proposition backed by $1 million from George Soros’ Open Society Policy Center, along with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, the wife of Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and major corporations and nonprofits. Despite all the billionaires and companies in her corner, Californians turned down the proposition to legalize racial discrimination.

What voters wouldn’t go for, California’s extremist one-party legislature did. Holder claims credit for drafting two bills, AB 241 and 242, which mandated indoctrination in racist woke ideologies for doctors, lawyers, and judges. Implicit bias training has been linked to all sorts of racist ideas and discriminatory practices associated with critical race theory including ‘white privilege’. It has also been shown to encourage medical professionals to dispense treatment and prioritize triage based on race rather than medical need potentially using racial discrimination to kill people.

AB 242 claimed that “all persons possess implicit biases”, but that “most people have an implicit bias that disfavors African Americans and favors Caucasian Americans” and “other socially stigmatized groups, such as Native Americans, immigrants, women, people with disabilities, Muslims, and members of the LGBTQ community”.

Conveniently, Lisa Holder is also a “recognized racial justice scholar and equity consultant”.

The reparations proposal is a whole lot bigger than legalizing racial discrimination through affirmative action or forcing doctors and lawyers to hear about their white privilege.

Racial reparations had also been a longtime Soros cause. In 2021, former Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, since dispatched as Biden’s ambassador to India after an aide’s sexual misconduct scandal, revealed that the Soros network had offered funding for a racial reparations program in Los Angeles. The billionaire’s extremist network has also funded a variety of reparations activists including Nkechi Taifa, a senior policy analyst in the Soros network, described as a “principal player and catalyst in the reparations movement” and a “founding member of the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America”  (N’COBRA)

Taifa is also a commissioner of the National African-American Reparations Commission (NAARC). Another NAARC commissioner, Cheryl Grills, is also a member of the California Reparations Task Force. Jeremiah Wright, the bigoted Obama mentor who cheered 9/11, is an honorary member of NAARC.

While it was a foregone conclusion that the panel would vote themselves millions of dollars, the real controversy within the reparations movement and the dozens of organizations that have sprung up to lobby for free money was whether it would be limited to the descendants of slaves or would be given out to all black people or perhaps all Africans: which might include Elon Musk.

The California task force brought in members from both camps. The National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America has vocally argued that all black people should get reparations. NAARC claims support for this position from BLM and other racist hate groups. That is also N’COBRA’s position. However, groups like the National Assembly of American Slavery Descendants and the American Descendants of Slavery have forcefully made the argument that only the descendants of slaves should be eligible for a check. This is at least legally tenable.

In January, the split commission voted to limit reparations to descendants of slavery by 5 to 4. That is the position of the more established black community and it was championed by chairwoman Kamilah Moore, but opposed by Lisa Holder and Nkechi Taifa. And the debate is still going on with pro-race activists claiming that tracing genealogy is unworkable and that black immigrants should be eligible for reparations because America is so fundamentally racist.

With a $22.5 billion deficit in the state, the difference between limiting reparations to those who can prove that they descended from slaves and everyone with the right skin tone could be massive. The $800 billion estimate widely discussed is based on the state’s over 2 million black residents. Limiting reparations to the descendants of slaves would produce a smaller, but likely still wildly unworkable number.

Cheryl Grills of NAARC condemned the “preoccupation with a dollar figure”, but the dollar figure remains the best argument for those advocating for limiting reparations to those whose ancestors were enslaved along with their contention that purely race-based reparations would be shut down by the courts. The Soros network’s activists however remain committed to universal reparations and $800 billion in payouts.

While the debate has largely played out within the black community, the intervention of the Soros network on the side of the most destructive and impossible position is typical.

The Soros networks, like all leftists, seek destruction, not healing, and making reparations as universal and as unworkable as possible would stimulate the most outrage and anger.

And that would further divide the races and tear apart not only California but America.

George Soros has dedicated his life to dividing people of all nations and backgrounds. With California’s racial reparations, the activists he has supported have turned black people against each other.


Pittsburgh International Airport: Iranian Muslim migrant tells gate agents his luggage has a bomb

He didn’t turn out to have any explosives. Hossein Dehnavifard may have been angry over missing his flight. He may have been conducting a kind of dry run. Or he may simply have been trying to strike terror in the enemies of Allah, as the Qur’an commands (8:60).

“Pittsburgh International Airport passenger arrested after threatening to use bomb: police,” by Lawrence Richard, Fox News, May 11, 2023:

A bomb threat Wednesday afternoon at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) resulted in an arrest, according to police.

Allegheny County police said Hossein Dehnavifard, a 37-year-old Iranian national, was arrested after he allegedly claimed to be carrying a bomb in his luggage after he was refused entry on his American Airlines flight. He was arrested shortly after 4:30 p.m.

He faces charges of terroristic threats and a threat to use weapons of mass destruction, the police department said in a statement.

No explosives were found in his possession, authorities confirmed.

The incident started when Dehnavifard arrived late for his flight to Philadelphia and airport staff refused to allow him to board, police said.

He then allegedly told the American Airlines gate agents that his luggage contained a bomb. At least two airline workers confirmed hearing the comment to the police.

The suspect was then taken into custody.

Police said more than 100 passengers on American Airlines flight 1862 were deboarded and the B-concourse was partially closed. The plane, an Airbus A319, was en route to Philadelphia.

“The aircraft was searched by Allegheny County Police officers and FBI agents. The Allegheny County Police Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) Team and EOD K-9 handlers utilized police K-9s trained in the detection of explosive odor as well as x-ray machines to search the aircraft and luggage on board. Officers did not locate a threat on the aircraft or luggage, including the two checked bags belonging to Dehnavifard,” Allegheny County police said.

The FBI and the Transportation Security Administration have joined in the investigation. TSA may also impose a civil penalty, police said….
