16 Days of government shutdown and still counting.
by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
Well, the government is still shutdown. And all over a paltry $5 billion to partially fund more of the southern border wall, which, according to Democrats, is expensive, ineffective and immoral. Back in April 2017, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking with NBC’s Chuck Todd, said that all this talk about building a wall is just Trump admitting that he can’t control our border. Yes, like his predecessors did such a great job.
Meanwhile there’s a new caravan already on the move. The original estimated date of departure from Honduras was to be Jan. 15, 2019. But Mexico News reported that it was on its way as of Dec. 24.
It is said to be 15,000 strong. If this is anywhere near accurate, by the time the caravan makes it through Guatemala and El Salvador, it could be double that size. The interesting thing about this caravan is, according to sources, many have no plans to come to the United States. read more
A few days ago, Prager University released another video on YouTube. This segment is about, what else, the caravan. Ami Horowitz, American documentary filmmaker, and writer, producer, and director of Ami on the Streets, left the comfort of the United States and headed South to join the caravan in the process of moving through Mexico to our Southern border. Embedded with caravan, he learned some rather revealing things.
Watch the video, although it’s doubtful you’ll enjoy it: read more
We’ve been saying this since the caravan was first formed in Honduras. The overwhelming majority of the migrants are males – not families – not women and children.

Even this MSNBC reporter had to admit the truth about caravan migrants at the border
An MSNBC reporter unraveled a common narrative on the left about caravan migrants while reporting about the situation at the U.S. border Monday.
“This has become such a polarizing issue…”
Gadi Schwartz was reporting for MSNBC from the border when he admitted that the majority of the migrants were males, and that the majority of them were not talking about requesting refugee status at all.
The exchange began when MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle asked Schwartz to undermine the claims from President Donald Trump and right-wing critics of the caravans. read more
Someone or group of someones is funding this ever-expanding “migrant caravan” heading for a showdown at the U.S./Mexico border.
So who is it? As of yet, no one seems to know for sure, and very few seem interested in finding out
We’ve heard Vice President Mike Pence say: “At the president’s direction I spoke to President [Juan Orlando] Hernandez of Honduras. He told me that the caravan that’s now making its way through Mexico headed for the southern border was organized by leftist organizations and financed by Venezuela.”
Glenn Beck theorized the same, saying that “this is a Honduran political stunt organized by a leftist group that has ties to the former Marxist president who was exiled after a coup in 2009.”
Like the Democrats after the 2016 election, Beck says Honduran Marxists “never got over it.” He claims that the organizers and financiers of the march “have ties to the Castros in Cuba and Maduro in Venezuela. This stunt is designed for media fallout, and it’s timed very specifically for maximum exposure.” read more
Another migrant caravan is on its way to the United States, and once again we’re told that it is not a political stunt.
Reuters reported that when the “caravan” left northern Honduras there were approximately 1,300 people. Since then it has more than tripled in size
Now the size of the caravan is estimated at 4,000 or more. It is being said (again) that these migrants from Honduras, Guatemala and probably El Salvador are fleeing violence and poverty and that this march, like the last mass migration last April, is absolutely not a political statement.
It is repeatedly stated by these poor “marchers,” as well as everyone on the left, that they are just trying to escape the violence of their countries.
However, these facts make this a bit harder to believe. read more

Mexican ambassador makes a stunning accusation about migrant caravan from Honduras
The Mexican ambassador to the United States said that they had reason to believe that the migrant caravan from Honduras heading towards the U.S. border was not the result of a grassroots effort, but was “politically motivated.”
“They’re frequently tricked…”
Ambassador Geronimo Gutierrez made the comments to Bret Baier on Fox News in an interview that aired Thursday.
“Mexico also issued a very clear statement saying if somebody is seeking asylum, Mexico is there along now with the U.N. to look at those claims, we want to make sure those claims are legitimate.” read more

Let’s talk caravans, shall we? No – not Dodge caravans. Illegal immigrant caravans. Although I guess they are only migrant caravans, until they cross our border.
I’m talking about the now world famous caravan of 1000 or 1200 or whatever, that crosses Mexico to attempt to get to America.
Oh great – another right wing whacko gonna dump on the poor undocumented immigrants.
Well – no – no I am not.
Now I didn’t realize, but evidently, these caravans have been going on since 2010, yet I haven’t heard of them until this last adventure. And I don’t recall any national and international reports until now.
And I certainly don’t remember a single instance where a reporter has been embedded with the marchers. Wonder why they chose to do it this time?
And did you know that this was not a spontaneous march. It was funded by the one and only George Soros. What a surprise.
