“To hear the news report it, the migrant caravan is just a spontaneous uprising of women and children fleeing Honduran gangs…
“What’s lost is just how hard, hard, left the organizers of what has become this humanitarian disaster are. Even the liberation-theology types are getting concerned. The caravan agenda is a hard-left, pro-Chavista one, and drawing the fringiest leftwing groups. To its organizers on the ground…it’s a by-any-means-necessary political mission. A look at the caravan organizers and their allies shows that their real aim is to confront the U.S. The moms-and-kids are window dressing.”
Our invaders are Latin commies, pure and simple.
“This is amazing stuff, completely ignored by the mainstream media and available only in the Spanish-language press. And these people are at the heart of the caravan roiling both the U.S. and Mexico, creating a humanitarian disaster in the true Marxist tradition. My question: Why are they completely off the U.S. press radar?”
Because the U.S. press is increasingly composed of low-paid millennials who were taught in college to be sympathetic to the collective instead of the individual?

The best reason of all to vote the bums out in November. They whined about Bush’s deficit spending on Iraq and Afghanistan, then look what happened to the deficit when they took over the budget process in 2008. Va-va-voom!
That’s good advice, really, especially if you can weasel a government subsidy for it out of your local congressman. How do you think T. Boone Pickens plans to make money off wind power? Ain’t going to be in the profits, folks. Them’s fantasies.
The proof? This amazing article in American Thinker which has tracked down evidence that the alternative energy shuck so beloved by Obamalot and kibitzers at Starbucks, is bankrupting Europe and its practitioners are trying desperately to move it to our shores.
For the federal subsidies the Dems want to pay. While we already have abandoned wind farms in Hawaii and California that never paid their way after the subsidies expired. For one thing, the maintenance costs were too high. Let’s face it. If alternative energy was real it would be available to all without help from Henry Waxman. So get crackin’ on that solar panel and write your congressman for some of that stimulus money. You can’t make it pay otherwise.
The latest global warming scare? The warming oceans (that aren’t, actually, warming) could cause the Earth’s normal tilt of 23.5 degrees from the vertical to increase. Then what? They don’t say. But when it comes to Pap & Tax (otherwise known as Cap & Trade) the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is lobbying for a wait-a-minute debate on what could cause our drift into a Third World economy.

UPDATE: Good analysis of the fraud by Norman Rogers, a former Zero Population Growth activist who remembers that exaggeration and scare stories produced membership in ZPG far better than facts.
MORE: Peter D. Ward and Donald Brownlee explain, in their 2002 book The Life and Death of Planet Earth, what an increased tilt might mean: "…if we tilted too much, or if the tilt shifted, our climate would become more extreme or be thrown into chaos. This may have happened to Mars, in fact, allowing that planet to lose its oceans."
