Our first third-world state

It’s Mexifornia, of course. Where historian Victor Davis Hanson sees:

“We have the highest income tax rates,” said Hanson of California. “We have the highest gas tax rates. We have among the highest sales tax. Our schools [and] our infrastructure is in the bottom ten percent. I don’t remember one out of every three people being admitted to a hospital suffering from diabetes in California. When I was growing up we didn’t have two or three dialysis clinics in every single little town. We have an epidemic of health problems and yet the money to address that is such that we can’t spend it on infrastructure.”

What happens in California stays in California. Let’s hope.

National Emergencies

If Trump declares one to get the Southern border wall built, it will be the 59th declared since Congress passed the National Emergencies Act in 1978. Thirty one are still in force.

Of course the Dims would go to the courts to fight Trump and try to legislate their way out of it. Remains to be seen.

Trump on the wall

“This is a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul,” Trump said. “Women and children are the biggest victims by far of our broken system … this is the tragic reality of uncontrolled migration on our southern border.”

An example, apparently, of what the Dims (Pelosi) called his malice and CNN (multiple personalities) called his lies.

“Trump said his proposal to Congress has both medical and other resources to deal with the flow of migrants, as well as law enforcement, and a $5.7 billion ‘steel barrier,’ which he said was a concession to Democrats, rather than a concrete wall.”

Beto on the border

Welcoming hundreds of migrants into El Paso. Clearly not a wall man, but we knew that. The phony Mexican made sure that ICE followed the law. And boosted his national optics.

Rule 5: Natalia Lozano

The first thing Chavez took were the guns

“Socialist dictator Hugo Chavez initially ran  a months-long amnesty program encouraging Venezuelans to trade their arms for electrical goods. That year, there were only 37 recorded voluntary gun surrenders, while the majority of seizures – more than 12,500 – were by force.”

Now, as Venezuelans flee and the state crumbles, no arms are legally obtainable.

“A former gun store owner inside Venezuela – who told Fox News he has now been relegated to only selling fishing supplies since the ban – said he can’t sell any type of weaponry – even a slingshot – and underscored that even BB ammunition and airsoft guns are only issued to police and military officers. The punishment for illicit carrying or selling a weapon now is 20 years behind bars.”
