No mas. No dice. No comprende. That is virtually what Texas Governor Greg Abbott has to say to refugees who think they have a chance of getting into the Lone Star State in 2020. And yes, I understand that most refugees aren’t Spanish. It just felt right. Get off my back, bro. I’m not the enemy!

From The Hill:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced Friday that his state will not accept any new refugees in fiscal year 2020 after President Trump signed an executive order allowing governors to opt out of doing so.

Abbott noted in a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Texas has accepted more refugees than any other state since fiscal year 2010 on top of grappling with “disproportionate migration issues resulting from a broken federal immigration system.”

Abbott noted, “At this time, the state and nonprofit organizations have a responsibility to dedicate available resources to those who are already here, including refugees, migrants, and the homeless — indeed, all Texans.

He added, “As a result, Texas cannot consent to initial refugee resettlement for FY2020.”

On Christmas Day, 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg twisted history to make it politically correct for easily-offended 21st century Americans.

Here’s his tweet…

Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, who came into this world not in riches but in poverty, not as a citizen but as a refugee.

No matter where or how we celebrate, merry Christmas.

During his first year as president, Pete is vowing to accept 125,000 refugees into America.

Buttigieg’s calling Jesus Christ “a refugee” came days after he released his national immigration plan, in which he vows to import at least 125,000 refugees in his first year in office. Likewise, Buttigieg said he will push Congress to pass a law that bans the United States from admitting any less than 95,000 refugees a year.

Buttigieg nods along in agreement with the claim that illegal immigrants are reclaiming stolen land in US.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.

Michigan Politicians Use Coronavirus as Excuse to Give Themselves Big Pay Raise

Members of the Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners used the coronavirus crisis to give themselves a huge pay raise.

Members of the Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners used the coronavirus crisis to give themselves a huge pay raise. Using federal COVID-19 relief funds, board members claimed they were using the funds as a way to give back to front line workers by giving those who have been dealing with the coronavirus a pay raise. But what the board didn’t tell anyone is that along with helping front-line workers, they gave themselves a $25,000 per member pay raise too. According to M-Live: Records obtained by MLive-The Flint Journal show “top-level administrators” in the county received $25,000 each from the COVID-19 relief funds awarded to the county while department heads each received $12,500. “Middle management” officials received $5,000 each while chief deputies, Health Department employees, and attorneys received $2,500. The breakdown written by County Coordinator Brian Boggs shows employees identified as “cleaning staff” received $2,000 each and all other employees received $1,000. “It’s a sad day … I feel badly,” said Commissioner Marlene Webster, a Republican who represents a portion of the city of Owosso. “It’s a blow to county workers’ morale at a time when it’s difficult to keep good workers … I think (it shows) a serious lack of acknowledgment of what people did (during the pandemic).” Webster, who voted in favor of the measure, claimed that she did not know she was voting for her own pay raise and said that she didn’t even know she was getting a pay raise until it showed up in her bank account. “I’m mortified. I never would have voted to give myself more than the average (employee) — if anything,” Webster said. On the other hand, several other members of the board blasted Webster for refusing the pay raise. Commissioner Cindy L. Garber and Jeremy R. Root said they had no…
