Mass refugee exodus prompts new
border controls – in Brazil and Colombia

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/11/2018 5:37:43 AM

A border rush? Of refugees? From violence? Like what we had with the Central American "unaccompanied minors" crisis of 2014? Nope, it´s someplace else – Colombia and Brazil, which just announced the clampdown on their borders with restricted cards, punishments for illegals, and thousands more border guards, to keep unchecked illegal immigration under control, as thousands and thousands of Venezuelans flee their hellish homeland. According to Reuters: Colombia and Brazil tightened border controls with Venezuela on Thursday as both nations grapple with a mounting influx of hundreds of thousands of desperate migrants fleeing a worsening economic crisis.

Comments:
Bet we´re not gonna see them signing any more Friend of the Court petitions to condemn Arizona.

FTA: He (Columbian president Santos) said Colombia was spending millions of dollars to support the migrants.

This cannot be true because when refugees come to the USA, they do jobs Americans won´t, pay taxes, and have an overall positive impact on the American economy. /sar

But, I thought Socialism was the Utopia creator. Isn´t it funny how throughout the entire history of humans on this planet, not one single example exists of a grand socialist Utopia. they all turn into massive cesspools of human misery. Yet, here we have thousands of idiot Americans drooling over the likes of Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, "Poka-hauntus" Warren, Schumer and "Nana" Pelosi. All self avowed socialists or closet socialist.

Exactly, #4. If these "hundreds of thousands" would rush the capital and take the guns away from the police and the army, they could fix their own problem. Their dictator could then be forced to wish for a death as easy as Mussolini had.

Venezuela is just the latest example of a failed Communist state. It certainly doesn´t work for 90% of its people.

Funny how those countries can crack down hard and the US is condemned, chastised and ridiculed for even mentioning it. It is proof from Mexico on down they have little to no regard for American sovereignty, that the US is like Israel to their Palestine.

With all of the cracking down it is going to leave those Venezuelans one direction, north, this mass exodus is a prelude for the US I am afraid.

Funny how the Olympic athletes who managed not to insult and offend us by their loudmouth anti-Trump grandstanding before the games seem to be the only ones who either win big medals or else win our hearts anyway. Who wasn´t delighted by Chloe Kim with her snowboarding virtuosity along with her delightful, vibrant, bubbly, teenager personality? [Snip] Then there were the bad sports, the attention-seekers, and worst of all, the anti-Trump loudmouths, who insulted us all with their anti-Trump remarks before they have even competed to show us what they could do in the 2018 Olympics.

I have always prided myself on being an amateur historian, knowing far more than most people. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out, about ten years ago, that I knew nothing about one of the most important battles in world history, whose ramifications echo down to this day. This is the Battle of Cartagena de los Indias, fought between the Spanish and British empires off the coast of present-day Colombia in 1741. It was part of the War of Jenkin´s Ear, a war where Britain´s ultimate aim was to break the Spanish empire and impose a British hegemony

The stock market apparently has decided that the indictments of Russians announced yesterday is good news for the tax-cutting, regulation-slashing president who ignited the boom that is raising corporate profits, full-time employment, and paychecks all over the country. Let CNN and MSNBC and the other Trump-haters bloviate about how this proves something bad about President Trump. The people with money on the line don´t care about manufacturing narratives for political gain; all they care about is a cold-eyed assessment of where this will lead the country. This screenshot from CNBC says it all. At first, there were fears that the country might

As if it couldn´t soil itself more in the wake of its flawed Russian investigation scandal targeting Donald Trump, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is in hot water again, this time over its failure to act on at least two very specific tipoffs about the Parkland, Florida school spray shooter, who murdered 17 people in cold blood. Here is the FBI´s press release: On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) tipline to report concerns about him. The caller provided information about Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and

U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon did not medal in his final event at the 2018 Winter Olympics, but he remains an Olympic star nonetheless. Rippon emerged as a fan favorite during the Olympics, loved especially for the artistic beauty of his routine, his honesty and hilarious tweets. He also made headlines for a feud with Vice President Mike Pence over the politician’s stance on gay rights. The skater took home a bronze medal in the team event for figure skating. Rippon finished in the men’s figure skating long program Friday, and although he didn’t earn a medal in that event, it was

Joy Behar was forced to apologize to Mike Pence for calling him a crazy person. “The View” host has spent much of the past week dropping not-so-subtle hints that the vice president belongs in the looney bin for suggesting that God speaks to him. Unfortunately, the Democrats’ unofficial 2020 frontrunner Oprah Winfrey just said basically the same thing in a sit down with CBS’ 60 Minutes Overtime. To her credit, Winfrey cited her relationship with God in her decision to not (yet) formally declare her candidacy.

One of Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s lead attorneys has an ethics problem. Actually, a lot of ethics problems, considering what he´s gotten away with. According to investigative journalist Sara Carter, Weissmann has been busted for withholding evidence in a previous court case involving prosecution of organized crime, to put an extra thumb on the scale of justice in his own favor. Carter writes that: In 1997 Andrew Weissmann was officially reprimanded by a judge in the Eastern District of New York for withholding evidence. Weissmann was reported to the Department of Justice Inspector General and Senate Judiciary Committee for alleged “corrupt legal

For awhile there, it seemed that the Trump-hating FBI lovebirds, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, whose text sound like those of giggly teenagers, were sort of comically most emblematic of the conflicts of interest that besmirch what should be an expected detached professionalism among members of America´s intelligence community. Now we have revelations that U.S. Department of Justice Associate Deputy Attorney General, Bruce Ohr, failed to disclose the payments his wife Nellie Ohr was receiving from Fusion GPS on his official forms, an ethics violation that carries a jail penalty, according to the Daily Caller.

James Comey is proving himself to be a real sneak. According to information in the Grassley-Graham memo, the former FBI Director had a meeting with the White House on Jan. 5 about supposed Russian collusion in the 2016 election and then failed to disclose it to Congress, when he was asked about it in testimony. It turns out that the Obama inner circle, including Susan Rice, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, Comey, and President Obama were all powwowing together in the White House, and Susan Rice, who questioned whether incoming President Trump should be told at all about the Russian collusion

When the true story of the Obama administration – the constitutional crimes, the weaponizing of the IRS and the intelligence community, and the help given to Iran’s fanatical dictatorship – is finally told, Susan Rice will be seen as a tragi-comic figure. She’s willing to lie in public, most notoriously on five Sunday morning shows claiming the Benghazi assault was based on a YouTube video seen by a handful of people worldwide, even when those lies are easily exposed. The truth is that Rice is a henchwoman. She’ll do whatever is asked of her in support of those who elevated her

In June, 2006, Donald Trump taped an episode of his reality-television show, “The Apprentice,” at the Playboy Mansion, in Los Angeles. Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s publisher, threw a pool party for the show’s contestants with dozens of current and former Playmates, including Karen McDougal, a slim brunette who had been named Playmate of the Year, eight years earlier. In 2001, the magazine’s readers voted her runner-up for “Playmate of the ’90s,” behind Pamela Anderson.

Lindsey Vonn didn´t have to make any excuses for her sixth-place finish in Saturday´s super-G at the 2018 Winter Olympics. TV analysts, newspaper writers, Twitter users and fans were already making them for her: Since Vonn happened to be the first skier out of the gate, she was at a tremendous disadvantage, one that proved fatal when she slipped near the end of the course, costing her precious time that would have easily won her gold.

Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha

The poses are wooden, the compositions hackneyed, and both subjects have obviously been copied from photographs.
