Democrat smoke & mirrors

THE DEMOCRAT propaganda machine known as The New York Times* recently ran a front-page photo of a drowned man and child who was strapped to the man’s back.

The clear message was that this tragedy was the fault of President Trump.

Note that I said drowned man, not father, because we do not know if the man was the father of the child. The child could easily have been the man’s “ticket in.”

As Ted Cruz reveals in this video, the percentage of men sneaking over the border in 2014 with a child was about 1 percent. Now it’s about 50 percent. Why is this?

Something called the Flores Agreement from decades back says migrant children could be held briefly, not long term. Adult illegals can be held for long periods. Anyone with a lick of sense sees what this means: Bring a child! Any kid will do.

The child will not be put on the street alone.

If the Flores Agreement was decades back, why is this happening now? It was widely publicized during the Obama administration. Obama, not Trump. And rulings by activist (leftist) judges also magnified the effects of the Flores Agreement.

Nowadays, male illegals know it’s smart to have a kid in tow. How do they get a kid? They steal or buy one. Here’s an interesting piece in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

On Monday President Trump signed a bill providing $4.6 billion for humanitarian border assistance, legislation the Democrats stonewalled for weeks. The White House said this is just a short-term remedy to the border crisis. Well, duh.

What is really needed is a much longer border wall. Ask the Israelis.

If you want accurate news about the ongoing accomplishments of the Trump Administration, go to the White House website, and subscribe to “Updates.” You’ll get an excellent newsletter, about the only way to get non-hysterical information about the good work under way.

The best choice

STEVE COTTON pointed me to an interesting website that allows you to compare your stances to those of the presidential candidates in a very specific way.

It’s a fun process. You can take a relatively rapid version or you can opt for the extra questions available at the bottom of each category. I ate the whole banana.

trumpMy score shows that Trump and I agree 87 percent of the time. I wonder how I would have stacked up against Ted Cruz, my previous favorite.

Hillary and I are in agreement 9 percent. I’m embarrassed to learn that we agree on anything at all.

hillaryI boarded the Trump Train after Cruz pulled out. I did it initially because he was the only viable candidate still standing against Hillary.

However, The Donald has grown on me.

After taking the quiz and getting your results, there is the option of seeing how each candidate stands specifically on each of the questions. I did that with Trump, and was pleased to see his opinions and mine are incredibly in lockstep.

Trump’s polling numbers have been rising of late, and Hillary’s have been falling. This is heartening.

The Donald is a reaction to the lamentable condition of American culture. I wrote about this phenomenon back in March. We live in unfortunate, interesting times.

Señor Cotton, inexplicably, remains on the fence regarding the Hillary-Trump decision. This is strange because a more stark black-white choice would be hard to find.

Muslim beach bunny

Somewhere beyond absurd.

SCARCELY A DAY passes in which I fail to see a cringe-worthy photograph depicting the abysmal condition of women in the Mohammedan world.

This one, however, contains an extra poignancy.

When I saw the photo, my first reaction was that it must be a beached whale in Zihuatanejo. But it’s not.

It’s a Mohammedan woman or girl. Who can know her age, appearance, anything about her?

The poor creature is trying to enjoy a day at the beach.

The sheeting of women is not in the Koran. It’s a tradition begun later by sand-leaping, scimitar-swinging, bloodletting, towel-headed, camel jockeys who just want to keep their womenfolk to themselves, in their place.

Simple as that. Possessions of the highest order.

It’s no surprise that where actual slavery still exists in today’s world, it’s often in Mohammedan zones.

Mohammedan men’s attitude toward women make the most macho of swaggering, tequila-swilling Mexicans seem tailor-made for banner-wavers in a Gay Pride Parade.

IRONY AND HYPOCRISY

And yet in the United States, dimwitted university students and nincompoop faculty stand ready to support Mohammedan cultures while mouthing anti-Semitism that would make Heinrich Himmler puff up with pride.

And 99 percent of them vote for the Democrat Party.

These are the same vacuous people who advocate freedom of choice and claim all cultures are of equal value.

Anyone who truly believes in women’s rights, freedom of choice and equality has to be a cheerleader for Israel, the sole Mideast nation that embraces democracy and religious freedom.

And then there’s the U.S. presidential race with a cackling crook in designer tents facing an arrogant tycoon* with a comb-over who can’t keep his hoof out of his mouth.

I weep for the future.

* No matter. I’m still voting for the arrogant tycoon over the cackling crook. Ugly choices must be made. Meanwhile, I continue to mourn for Ted Cruz’s candidacy.
