Of Presidents, Knaves, and Memes

So the President talked officially to us the other night, about illegal immigration, the wall, and Democratic obstruction of the government’s mission to defend the people of the United States. He is right on all counts. And he hit the nail squarely on the head.

Schumer and Pelosi gave the Democrat’s response, and while it was a self-seeking partisan one, surprising no one, their delivery was incredibly bad. In fact, their appearance became an instant meme, which is never a good thing for your cause. Dov Fischer says this:

[I]n their every press conference and interview rejecting President Trump’s call for a wall along our southern border to help prevent and protect against human trafficking of women and children, the unbridled import of opioids, and the entry of criminals and terrorists into our country, the Democrats maintain that they oppose only the Wall but otherwise strongly support border security. Thus, they state that they prefer drones and hi-tech equipment instead of a wall because, they say, those more modern approaches will do an even better job than will an old-fashioned wall at guarding the border. In other words, they claim to be as concerned as is the President over the chaos transpiring along our porous southern border.

There are two ways to demonstrate they are lying. One way is by sitting and arguing back-and-forth with the other side endlessly, as in a cable news panel discussion. I have come to hate wasting my time watching those. When I have a few moments each day to grab some news on Fox, the only value-added from Marie Harf, Chris Hahn, and Jessica Tarlov is that, while muting them, they offer a few moments for me to check the channel guide or pay a bill or two. But there is a much quicker alternative way to cut through the muck and prove Pelosi, Schumer, and their gang a bunch of liars on border security: […]

So it all is a game. A joke, a lie. When they say they are for border security in every which way — everything, everything except for a wall — there is the truth, the proof. No need for a cable television-news panel debate. This does not take rocket science. If you install a home protection system, but then a crook evades the front-door camera or the home alarm or just defiantly smashes your front window and breaks into your home anyway, do you take the position that you will not shoot the invader or call the police — or first call the police and then shoot the invader — because, well, they got past the alarm, so…SANCTUARY! If you employ an insect exterminator — and, no, we are not comparing illegal immigrants other than MS-13 and opioid smugglers and human traffickers to insects — and if that exterminator does a great job, but you later see an ant or spider or silverfish that got past him, would you not squish it? Or do you look at that centipede and proclaim liberty throughout the land: SANCTUARY!

He’s right, the Democrats don’t give a damn about you, your personal security, that of your family, or anything else. The only thing they care about is their power. That is the ONLY thing that matters to them. That is why their response looked like a drug-induced meme.

“O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!”.

And, no doubt, the constant lying to us, and who knows, perhaps themselves, is how they have turned themselves into a joke, an automatic meme generator, of no real account, in governing the country.

    You’re right: it is about power. The power to destroy private property, to overthrow national identity and security, to destroy their enemies – in short to destroy not only who we are now, but who we were and who we aspire to be. They are enemies of truth and we must expose every bit of their false worldview.

      And sadly, that is all it is. Well, the mask has slipped, that is a start. Continue the mission.

        Yes, we must shine light into their darkness and leave them no room to hide. Enough is enough. (Incidentally, there are a few good articles on Mises.org today about socialism and intellectuals and Marxism in the Democratic party.) People are taking the red pill, though. The MSM distorts reality, which is why we have to look hard for facts now. More and more people are rejecting the Marxist lie.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Anyone, on either side of the aisle who believes in amnesty has already committed a grave injustice. If we are people of laws then the consequence of breaking those laws should apply to everyone.

      You must do what you can to defend your nation. People today take what they have for granted, but it was built up over generations and only takes a generation to be lost. If they want anything for themselves or for their children and descendants, they must defend what they have. Libertarians also need a smack for promoting freedom of movement, some of what they teach is poisonous to liberty in the real world, which is why I am beginning to prefer to call myself a conservative rather than a libertarian.

        For Christians all they have to do is look at the arguments of St. Thomas Aquinas. My Church leaders who are dead wrong about their beliefs and simply playing left wing politics ought to get back to basics.

          It seems to me across the denominations, that leaders have little regard for (or knowledge of?) famous Christian thinkers’ positions on the state, economics, finance, etc, which is a great shame. By the way, did you hear about how the interim Anglican ambassador to Rome may not believe in the physical resurrection of Christ? Archbishop Cranmer has an entry on it today.

          I’ve found that many, perhaps most, church leaders are more politicians than Christians. Lord Acton’s famous quote applies here as well as in secular politics.

          Always pays to remember that one of the causes of the revolution was New England’s fear that the Episcopacy was to be imposed.

          Yes, as someone who attends a Baptist church, I appreciate the control we have over our own affairs. Much as I love the formal services of liturgical churches, I would not exchange what we have for what they have. I do not see monarchical episcopacy as being an obligation – overseers, elders, etc are not highly defined terms in the NT and can just as easily be read as a board of elders for each church. The question of Apostolic Succession rests on a whole host of propositions that may or may not be binding.

          I do as well, and one can find both, at least here. But the US is more anti hierarchical than Britain, so there may not really exist that middle ground there.

          I’m not sure how the old hierarchies can survive the traditionalist / liberal war that’s going on. Not sure what the trends are, but if they can’t get all the heretics defrocked, they’re facing some sort of nuclear option.

          No, but it doesn’t surprise me. We had one, Dominick Crossan, years back, (who became an ex-priest) who believed Christ and his bones were eaten by wild dogs. Why such people are not ex-communicated in the faith is beyond me.

          I’m getting pretty sick of the permission granted to people like that to officiate while they preach against hypocrisy to the average guy in the pews. It’s scandalous to permit rank heresy like that. It’s not like these are borderline cases about potentially ambiguous passages in Scripture. It’s right there for all to read: virgin birth; Trinity; physical resurrection; and so on. And one wonders why those of us on the conservative end of the spectrum get more frustrated and strident in our utterances. Seeker sensitive and all that other stuff too -enough is enough.

          Totally agree. Crossan was on of those brainiac, academic theologians that taught in the university. I suppose the excuse is as always: academic freedom.

          But we have a situation currently at Franciscan University that was a real shock since Franciscan University has been looked at as one of the last bastions of Orthodoxy amongst colleges that bear the name of Catholicism. You can read about these outlandish and scandalous things here: truly tragic.
