Let’s get one thing straight. The Southern border detention facilities are like Sandals Resorts compared with concentration/death/labor camps in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia or Communist China.
And anyone who makes such an absurd comparison is a moron, who, in Nazi Germany, would have be deemed too mentally impaired to continue living. For the good of society they would have been euthanized.
Regarding the Southern border, Rush Limbaugh had a great point just yesterday, as to why the dems are hitting the conditions at these detention centers so hard. It’s because they can no longer talk about their other favorite topic – the plight of the homeless.
During both the Reagan and Bush presidencies, the left lamented regularly about the homeless situation.
Ronald Reagan was constantly blamed for American homelessness. He increased spending, “through the escalating military budget, all the while slashing funds for domestic programs that assisted working class Americans, particularly the poor.”
The following video is comedian George Carlin’s rather politically incorrect take on saving the planet, and how mankind is not to blame for its destruction.

Over the past few weeks, Trump Derangement Syndrome has achieved new levels. The progressive socialists, commonly called democrats, have gotten their panties in a wad, the hand-wringing is likely to cause blisters, and the chorus of calling President Trump inhumane and a Nazi have reached a 24/7 level of caterwauling unknown before today.
What is it all about? It’s all about children sent here by their “loving” parents to sneak into the country and be allowed to bring the parents in to live off the benefits that American politicians bequeath them from the American taxpayer. And of course, according to the simpering leftists, if you don’t agree, you are a “racist”, “xenophobic” uneducated dullard who rejects progress.
Right now the Democrats have an agenda that the American people do not agree with. Part of it is the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The leftists are not concerned with how many more American citizens get raped or murdered by illegals. And yes, I will continue to say illegal and not “undocumented.” That is now a part of the Progressive socialist party platform of 2020. Every progressive socialist democrat intends to turn our country into open border anarchy where they can press further corruption and allow illegal aliens to vote, which to this day is considered a felony.
Guest Post from John Velisek, USN (Ret.):
It is now a foregone conclusion that the liberals of the late 50’s have turned their back on America and have become progressive socialists. They have every intention of pushing their fascist tendencies in order to turn our country into a police state which is the culmination of the agenda they have formulated.
Subverting the Constitution has been a major portion of the progressive socialist agenda since the implementation of the tactics of Saul Alinsky and Coward/Piven. Well steeped in this agenda are the likes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the leftists that now have overtaken the party. The rhetoric they use and the actions they have taken undermine our basic values as a country. Even now, with the sponsorship of globalists like George Soros and funneled through groups like Obama’s Organizing for Action (OFA), they continue to push back against the American people and the agenda of Donald Trump.
With the help of RINO Republicans and Never-Trumpers, they want Americans to follow their orders and not ask any questions. For starters, look to socialists like Kamala Harris and the rest of the happy group that are destroying California.
Using such falsehoods as people losing their healthcare insurance that her fellow radicals demanded to be paid for by those who could least afford it, she uses the straw man that only corporations have benefited from the Trump tax cuts. Never mentioned is the carve-out for unions and corporations that the leftists favor.
Guest Post by John Velisek – USN (Ret.):
A supermajority of Progressive socialist Democrats in the legislature of California has led the citizens of the State to pay higher state taxes, higher fuel taxes, higher cost of living, faulty schools, prohibitive health care costs for many, and have succeeded in becoming one of the most unlivable states within our country. Coupled with projects such as a high-speed rail line to nowhere, which is already tripled in the budget with no end date, and a sanctuary state status that a plurality of Californians do not want, has plummeted much of the state into third world status.
The progressive elite, with the influx of illegal aliens they have created and have no wish to stop, cocooned in their gated communities, have wreaked havoc on the communities of the middle class. They spend money as if it is the states and not the citizens.
From an edicts passed down from on high regarding the usage of plastic bags, to a waiter facing a fine and imprisonment over a plastic straw – the policies of the elite in Sacramento have made our state and those in it the laughing stock of the country.
All this rather than working on policies to help the veterans and other homeless to stand on their feet or get the medical help they need to at least have the opportunity to prosper and move forward in the community and ignore the drug problem that leave needles in our streets.

One big problem we have regarding radical Islam in this country is not just a lack of assimilation, but a concerted effort not to. These “immigrants” and “refugees” have no interest in becoming Americans, conforming to our society, and many are repulsed by the thought. America is just a better place to live than the crap hole from whence they came.
The same can be said of liberals.
The latest Islamist terrorist, Akayed Ullah, is from Bangladesh. The country of Bangladesh is about the size of the State of Michigan, yet has well over 160 million people. That’s half the population of the entire United States living in Michigan. Who the heck wouldn’t want to leave?
But they’re not thankful to be here. It’s obvious that they are not when many insist on trying to Islamize America. Many immigrants and refugees refuse to live by American law and instead demand that we all change and adopt Sharia.
There are several iterations of old sayings that go: You can take the boy of the country, but you take the country out of the boy. There’s one about girls and trailer parks, and Hoods and hoodlums. None are very kind, but all have at least a grain of truth to them.
from The Washington Free Beacon:
Congress is scheduled to host an anti-Israel forum that takes aim at the Jewish state’s military, accusing it of “systematic discrimination” against those living in the “occupied Palestinian territory,” according to an invitation for the event circulating on Capitol Hill that has sparked outrage among pro-Israel lawmakers.
The event, which is sponsored by a member of Congress who has chosen to remain anonymous, will feature several anti-Israel organizations that back boycotts of the Jewish state and distribute propaganda accusing the Israeli military of human rights violations, according to an invitation to the June 8 briefing obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
The event, “50 Years of Israeli Military Occupation & Life for Palestinian Children,” has riled several pro-Israel offices on the Hill and sparked a search for the anonymous lawmaker who has provided the organization space in room 122 of Capitol Hill’s Cannon House Office Building, according to conversations with multiple sources.
Note: On its 20th anniversary this week, I’d like to thank WND for being a platform for the reasonable in a sea of the irrational and to thank its editors for allowing me a voice.
I grew up being taught, and have subsequently tried to instill in my kids, that you don’t take pleasure in the misery of others – that it is just not charitable.
While this is a great sentiment, and I think we all (well, most all) try to live by this basic rule, occasionally it belies our baser human instincts. Sometimes you just can’t help but crack a smile or feel a warped sense of satisfaction when someone “gets their comeuppance,” as it were.
Regardless of your feelings regarding President Trump, if you are conservative, you, like me, felt elated that Hillary Clinton not only lost, but did so in humiliating fashion. We should merely be satisfied that she lost and not revel in her anguish. But I did, and admit it – you did also.
I know it’s wrong, but there is little we conservatives enjoy more than witnessing the crack-up of leftists. And even more satisfying is when they turn on there own, which seems to be happening more and more.

Just like almost all of Hollywood and 99.8% of the music industry, it seems the radio DJs that spin the records (pardon the ancient vernacular) are also majority liberal. I’m sure it’s an industry thing.
I will occasionally listen to broadcast music radio in the morning on my way to the office. Most music radio morning drive programs have their local morning show crew, that between songs, discuss trivial current events like the Kardashian’s, or now Bruce Jenner. Nothing of substance – just junk catering to the pop culture, low information crowd.
Yesterday, the morning personalities on a Boston rock station were discussing the black family members who were arrested for cheering on their graduating children in Mississippi. Evidently the school rule was to hold all applause until the end of the ceremony. I get that – many schools have this rule.
I assume it’s to keep the ceremony moving along, but it also has a “feel-good” liberal element to it. You see, we wouldn’t want to upset the little children who have no one to cheer for them.
Anyway, charges were filed against the families by the superintendent of public schools. Well, the local radio personalities were beside themselves over this incident. Although, surprisingly no racial component was brought up at the time, the radio folks thought this was positively Hitlerian, to arrest someone over that.
