Where is the Democrat who will challenge Omar?

leave a comment »

How crazy left is the Democrat Party of 2019?  Look at what is being discussed in the U.S. House.   

This is from Fox News:    

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution this week supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.

Omar’s resolution seeks to push back against U.S. laws banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they so wish.

While the resolution doesn’t explicitly name Israel or the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, she told media outlets that the resolution concerns the Jewish state.

Israel like Nazi Germany?  Or the USSR?

Representative Omar is free to believe whatever she wants to believe.   Nevertheless, her positions on this and many other issues show a disrespect for Jewish Americans and our long relationship with Israel.

She also has no regard for her own party.  The Democrats are risking losing the House and more state legislatures in 2020.  It means that they will lose more power over drawing up districts as happened after the 2010 ObamaCare wipeout.

Where is the “moderate” Democrat who calls on Representative Omar to resign or stop bad mouthing everybody?   I can’t find one but there is a great opportunity here for a Democrat to make a name for himself or herself.

The kind of Mexico I remember

leave a comment »

Over the last year, I’ve posted here that many of my friends in Mexico were shocked with their country’s tolerance of illegal immigration.

In other words, the Mexico that I remember was brutal, and I mean brutal, with anyone crossing its southern border.  

Often, Central Americans have pointed out that they were scared to death crossing Mexico.  I recall a young woman who said that she and her friends were sure that they’d be raped crossing Mexico.   Thankfully, this group of young women was not but their fears were legitimate.

Here comes a poll from south of the border, a joint venture between the Washington Post and Reforma from Mexico City:    

More than 6 in 10 Mexicans say migrants are a burden on their country because they take jobs and benefits that should belong to Mexicans. 

A 55 percent majority supports deporting migrants who travel through Mexico to reach the United States.

Those findings defy the perception that Mexico — a country that has sent millions of its own migrants to the United States, sending billions of dollars in remittances — is sympathetic to the surge of Central Americans. 

Instead, the data suggests Mexicans have turned against the migrants transiting through their own country, expressing antipathy that would be familiar to many supporters of President Trump north of the border. 

Who knew that MAGA is now MMGA or Make Mexico great again?

The results of this poll are not surprising to any of us who know the country.  In my case, I worked with a U.S. company in Mexico City years ago.

Mexicans have often told me that they need to send their people north and Central Americans would only compete with them up there.  It’s sort of like it’s okay for us and not for them!

So here we are.  After a few caravans, Central Americans are seeing the Mexico that we’ve known all of these years.

Maybe they can stop lying about their country

leave a comment »

It would be better if we could talk to each other.  However, it’s hard to do when so many on the left speak so poorly about their country.  

I like what Rich Lowry wrote about this:     

Beto O’Rourke — the losing Texas candidate for the US Senate who bootstrapped his way into becoming a losing presidential candidate — had a message for refugees who had come to America: Your new country is a hellhole.

The former congressman told a roundtable of refugees and immigrants in Nashville last week: “This country was founded on white supremacy. And every single structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression.”

Just in case the newcomers were inclined to believe that they had escaped to the greatest country on Earth — an open, dynamic, generous society that, whatever their struggles now, will afford them opportunities unimaginable back home — Beto was there to tell them of all its sins.

Wow.  Where did go off course in the U.S.?

Once upon a time, you would hear stuff like this about the U.S. in a speech at the UN or some left-wing “mental case” at a communist meeting.  

For the left, the world came to an end the night that President Trump was elected.  It has been driving them crazy for two-plus years.

For me, and many others who came here because we thought that it was the opposite of what Beto is saying, it makes me angry and sad.

I am sad because Beto knows better.  It’s hard to believe that he really believes that nonsense.

I am angry because this is confusing a lot of young people vulnerable to demagoguery like this.

Where did we go wrong?  I don’t know but it is very sad.
