Mexifornia secedes

“California has one quarter or more of America’s illegal aliens – as well as one third of the entire nation’s welfare recipients.  With a population more than 40 percent Latino, it has become Mexifornia.

“The new California motor-voter registration law that took effect April 1 transparently is intended to enfranchise illegals, who vote 2-1 for the ruling Democratic Party, in order to dissolve the American nation into a borderless, bankrupt, bilingual backwater ruled as a colony by a global progressive government.”

So, with this metaphorical first shot at Fort Sumter, this transparent secession, will Trump send in federal troops to take over Sacramento and restore constitutional order?

UPDATE: More than a million illegals have received Mexifornia driver’s licenses.

Let the border wall begin

Hey, but it wasn’t in that omnibus budget the Congress just passed and The Donald signed. No? Guess again.

It was buried under Defense Appropriations. All $1.6 billion of it. What is a border wall if not Defense and National Security? The Dems had to pass the bill to find out what was in it. Now they have.

Shitholes I have known

J.D. hits a homer with this post on Haiti and other shitholes according to Trump. Haiti: “The more they are given the less they have.”

Thanks, in part, to the Clintons.

But face it, people, anywhere but Texas is a shithole.

Border wall protoypes

“President Donald Trump promised to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Prototype construction began last month, with crews given 30 days to complete their models. Watch these latest construction videos from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”

They look a lot like the slabs of concrete separating Israel proper from the West Bank—halting wouldbe terrorists and random snipers.

Mexico City Quake

Today’s temblor comes on the anniversary of the 1985 quake of 8.0:

“The 1985 Mexico City earthquake struck in the early morning of 19 September at 07:17:50 (CST) with a moment magnitude of 8.0 and a Mercalli intensity of IX (Violent). The event caused serious damage to the Greater Mexico City area and the deaths of at least 5,000 people.”

In a city of 8.8 million, to keep it in perspective. Today’s was only a 7.1, so maybe not so bad.

I spent that day in 1985 with a ham radio operator in Rollingwood, a suburb of Austin, listening to emergency calls and later writing a piece on what was learned. Communications were generally down then. Hard to say what it will be like now, with greater computer capacity and cell towers and wifi and generally a greater Internet. Ham radio should not be so necessary or useful.

Eating garbage in Venezuela

“‘Then true hunger crept into where I lived. People started digging through the trash at all hours, pulling out vegetable peelings and soggy pizza crusts and eating them on the spot. That seemed like rock bottom. Until my local bakery started organizing lines each morning, not to buy bread but to eat trash.

“‘People waited for their turn to hunt through black bags of bakery garbage. A young woman found a box of muffin crumbs. A teenage boy focused on finding juice containers and drinking whatever remained.’

“Socialists are not more moral than the rest of us. On the contrary, they are greedier and more cynical. Socialism is evil, and must be ostracized as such. Venezuela’s collapse is just the latest in a long series of stories that remind us that the only path to freedom and prosperity is free enterprise.”

Venezuela rewards soldiers with toilet paper

“Soldiers were pictured shaking hands with a superior, who handed them a package that included toilet paper, toothpaste, and sanitary wipes.

“The soldiers were likely grateful to receive the packages given Venezuela’s total economic collapse that has led to chronic shortages of sanitary products such as toilet paper and toothpaste, as well as other basic resources such as food, medicine, and electricity.”

Socialism/Communism is notorious for a lack of toilet paper.
