The war on Texas is a war on America

I've become convinced that the kangaroo "trial" of our former president is not only a travesty but is meant to distract from enormous mischief taking place elsewhere.

Lone Star StateFor instance, the Biden/Harris administration has virtually declared war on Texas, probably for daring to remain stubbornly Republican and for giving Donald Trump its 38 electoral votes in November.

How else to explain the flurry of executive orders on immigration that amount to a gigantic Welcome Mat for thousands and perhaps millions to cross into the U.S. illegally on the southern border, mostly in Texas? The minute they cross, by the way, they become instant victims of "white supremacy."

The Border Patrol is warning that Mr. Biden's revived "catch-and-release" policy does not include any COVID-19 testing before "undocumented immigrants" are released into American communities.

Meanwhile, the rest of us are supposed to wear three masks and be tested for COVID-19 before and after any domestic or international airline flights.  But illegals? Come on in and make yourself at home. Testing not required. Unless, of course, you want to fly somewhere. But why not stay in Texas and become a Democrat?

"Let's think about what President Biden is doing right now. There's a take care clause in the Constitution that says he's got to enforce the laws of the United States. He is specifically and purposely refusing to enforce the laws of the United States; that endangers the American people, endangers immigrants that are seeking to come here – and I can tell you what – endangers my home state of Texas. I find that to be deplorable and I think it's something we ought to continue to look at and press the president on.”

This past week, Rep. Chip Roy, Texas Republican, along with 51 other congressmen, sent a letter to President Biden asking him to halt the destruction of Mr. Trump's policies that had been working well to reduce illegal immigration.

They warned that Customs and Border Protection (CPB) agents began chronicling a huge surge in illegal entries just before Mr. Biden's expected win.  It makes perfect sense.  Mr. Biden immediately halted construction of the border wall, suspended deportations and re-installed asylum policies that had been heavily abused before Mr. Trump tightened them.

"We are once again on the brink of a huge humanitarian crisis, endangering the lives of migrants and law enforcement officers at the hands of the violent cartels that your Administration has further empowered," Mr. Roy and the others wrote.

"The number of unaccompanied minors illegally entering our borders is closing in on 300 per day. CBP hasn't seen numbers like this since the height of the immigration crisis in the summer of 2019. CBP has already encountered over 200,000 illegal migrants since October and numbers are rising."

Ho-hum, say CNN and the rest of major media. Let's run more clips of the Capitol riot. Can't get enough of the guy with the horns and war paint.  Typical Trump backer.

According to the Washington Post, which didn't consider this front-page news, "U.S. authorities made nearly 78,000 arrests and detentions along the border with Mexico in January – the highest number for that month in at least a decade."

In the face of this, the Biden administration has issued new guidelines to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to ease up on convicted criminals here illegally.

"Generally, these convictions would not include drug-based crimes (less serious offenses), simple assault, DUI, money laundering, property crimes, fraud, tax crimes, solicitation, or charges without convictions," ICE Acting Director Tae Johnson said in an email.

But not to worry, Texans and others. Just keep your kids off the roads.  Meanwhile, we will somehow reform and rebuild the economies of all of Central and South America so people will want to stay put.

The plan is to keep our border open until Biden/Harris turn Honduras into Disney World.  This might take a while. For more about "nation-building," see Afghanistan and Iraq.

It's a mistake to look at this in isolation. It's a huge part of the Left's plan to make elections in America obsolete, like those in one-party states such as Venezuela, Russia and China.

In addition to flooding the United States with millions more illegal aliens, otherwise known as "undocumented Democrats," Nancy Pelosi is readying HR 1, the Orwellian-named "For the People Act."

Do you think the 2020 election with zillions of mailed ballots, unconstitutional rule changes and late counting was, uh, at least questionable? Even before COVID, Democrats had been working overtime to weaken safeguards against vote fraud.  Think of HR 1 as a nuclear strike on what remains of election integrity.

The bill politicizes the Federal Elections Commission, forces taxpayers to subsidize political campaigns and regulates political speech.

It imposes automatic voter registration, same-day voter registration, online voter registration, no-fault absentee balloting, and early voting.  It eviscerates voter ID laws and encourages ballot harvesting. It strips the states of their constitutionally appointed election functions.

It mandates counting noncitizens, including illegals, in the census, thus skewing congressional districts and federal funding. It prevents states from comparing state voter registration lists, which has reduced fraud from multiple registrations.

Revealingly, the "For the People Act" would expose political donors, opening them up to mob harassment, as was done to Prop. 8 marriage amendment supporters in California in 2008.  This will enhance "unity."

Finally, it requires states to restore voting rights for felons as soon as they leave prison, in direct conflict with Section 2 of the 14th Amendment.

The first order of business here is to "turn Texas blue." It follows what Sen. Chuck Schumer said of the Senate runoff that gave him and his fellow Marxists a vice grip: "We take Georgia, then we take America."

Mr. Schumer hasn't had this much fun since openly threatening two Supreme Court justices, saying, "You will pay a price. You won't know what hit you."

For a snapshot of where we're headed unless Americans wake up and push back, see Democrat-run Virginia, a percolating mess of coercion, perversion and subversion.

No wonder there's talk again of secession in Texas.
