Tragic Photo Undermines Media Credibility
on ‘Manufactured Crisis’ at Border

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 6/29/2019 4:41:28 PM

All kinds of Democrats said it, so why not their allies in the media?I’m speaking here of the media chorus that insisted — insisted — that what President Trump, in an Oval Office address to the nation in January called a “humanitarian crisis” at the border — was in fact nothing more than a “manufactured crisis.”It’s one thing for partisan Democrats to make such a preposterous charge thinking they can get away with it. They are in this case, after all, seriously Trump-hating partisans. But the media? Those who insist that an “Apple is not a Banana” because “Facts Come First.”

And on the Five the other day morjuan williams insisted it's a 'humanitarian crisis' and that's different from what President Trump has been saying about it being a crisis. That he could sit there and try to differentiate between a crisis and a humanitarian crisis is beyond bloody stupid.

In reality about 300 or so illegal aliens die each year, either along the borderline, or in the very remote areas that are located North of the borderline in some areas for a hundred miles or more. About a third of the yearly deaths occur within the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector that covers South Texas from the Gulf of Mexico West past the Rio Grand Valley. To address all the dead bodies found each year the Border Patrol has established a Missing Migrant Unit that works with other authorities to attempt to identify the bodies, most being very decomposed when found due to the extreme climate near the borderline and because they have been ravaged by all sorts of predators. Once identified, and if possible, the bodies are returned to the deceased’s home country and family. If the Border Patrol advises that the depicted illegal alien father and daughter died in the river, that would be an accurate and legitimate law enforcement report. The spouse and mother of those deceased has said that the family, from El Salvador, was trying to gain illegal entry to the USA to find jobs and make better lives for themselves. That classic admission indicates that the family were economic migrants, who would not be found eligible for asylum under the US asylum laws. If aliens sneaking into the USA to get US jobs and make better lives for themselves, billions of aliens from all over the world could simply show up at the US borderline, claim asylum in the USA, and be waved into the USA. If that ever happened, the USA would rapidly be flooded by an unlimited amount of cheap foreign labor claiming to be looking for US jobs, a situation that would seriously undercut US workers and greatly lower the wages earned in all industries where that cheap foreign labor could be hired, that’s just common sense.

Of course there is a manufactured crisis on the border. It was manufactured by the demoncrats, through their insistence on crippling border enforcement, no funding for a wall, and open borders. They've done it purely for political gain, and they win no matter what President Trump does. The poor illegal aliens are suffering and dying, and it's all the Presidents fault. Meanwhile they gain millions of voters, massively increased social services, and political points for being the champions of the suffering poor.

If the manufactured crisis as the border doesn't work, they will manufacture an economic crisis in order to win the election. Think about it, economic numbers are up, we're self employed and can't keep up with the amount of work. No real economic crisis, but they'll find a way to manufacture one before the election.

An interesting thing happened in some Never Trump circles after the Democratic primary debates ended last Thursday night. While it won’t change the calculus of those we are about to discuss, it at least has them finally admitting the imperfect reality that drove the decision of many Trump voters in 2016.To preface, we need to establish exactly what group of Never Trump figures we are talking about here.There was a dramatic split in the Never Trump movement before the 2018 mid-term elections. While some Never Trump members realized that supporting Democrats to flex their opposition to Trump was a foolhardy move that did nothing to move the ball forward,

And while the appetizer course highlighted traditional Korean fare, including steamed sea urchins with tofu and pan-fried mung beans, it also included miniature hamburgers to tempt the fast-foodie-in-chief.

Lamb, 46, is a towering Mormon lawman, who wears cowboy boots and Wrangler blue jeans, cinched with a leather belt engraved with the word “Sheriff.” His cell phone ring-tone is the theme song from “G.I.

Joe Biden drew jeers from a group of his wealthy donors Saturday evening after he asserted that public displays of homophobia were acceptable as recently as 2014. Addressing 50 guests at the Seattle home of public relations executive Roger Nyhus, the former vice president claimed businessmen making "fun of a gay waiter" was routinely acceptable.Those remarks sparked outcries from the audience, who yelled "Not in Seattle!" Others disputed that casual acts of bigotry such as the kind Biden described would not be met with objections.

Yet another HUGE story that has been largely ignored by the mainstream media. Thankfully, OAN has been following the ongoing developments that outline how former Obama officials in conjunction with multiple contacts in Congress, have recently been caught working with Iranian officials to defeat the remarkably successful Trump administration’s actions in isolating and possibly hastening the collapse of the #1 sponsor of state terrorism that is the Iranian regime. Let that sink in. Former Obama officials and current members of Congress are working to support and maintain one of the worst human rights violators in the entire world.

Paul has been on top of the apparent Kamala Harris fraud. Harris, attacking Joe Biden for having collaborated with segregationist Democrats in the Senate to oppose school busing, claimed that she was bused as a kid, in Berkeley, and it did her a world of good. (Snip) Given the demography and geography of Berkeley at the time–she was 10 years old in 1974–it seems highly unlikely that Harris, the daughter of two PhDs, one from India and one from Jamaica, was bused into a white school so she could escape the ghetto and mix with the children of educated parents.

She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity,” Mosberg told The Post. “The people on the border aren’t forced to be there — they go there on their own will. If someone doesn’t know the difference, either they’re playing stupid or they just don’t care.”

Elizabeth Warren is beginning to solidify herself as a top-tier candidate in the Democrat primary. She has been forced to backtrack on her decades-long claims of being a woman of color, but Harvard still has not done the same. Why has Harvard not set the record straight? In 1993, Harvard Law School offered Warren a highly coveted tenured professor job. The record is clear as to how she obtained the offer -- Harvard had been the subject of a discrimination lawsuit at the time regarding its hiring practices, and the school was openly trying to hire women and people of color at its law school. Warren did not begin her job

In case you missed it earlier: the worst one-term president in United States history had things to say again. Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a real thing, people, and it afflicts all ages. This particular sufferer just happens to be older. Jeff Flake is a younger politician who manifested horrible TDS symptoms as he was unceremoniously run out of office for utterly failing his constituents. Rather than own up to his inability to hold on to his core support, he decided to mask electoral betrayal by complaining about President Trump 24/7 just so the mainstream media would put a band-aid on his political wounds. A Trump fan he is not. Jimmy Carter's
