The latest suggestion from the radical left is their most moronic yet

The democrats have apparently never understood the phrase “throwing the baby out with the bathwater”.

We have been bombarded with no shortage of opinions on how best to secure our southern border, both humanely and tightly, but the latest suggestion from the radical left is their most moronic yet.

The mainstream media had a heyday during the 2016 election, playing up what they felt was the sentiment of a simpleton in Donald Trump’s “big, beautiful wall” on the border between the United States and Mexico spiel.  What they didn’t realize at the time was that Trump was about to mop the floor with Hillary Clinton, possibly the least popular politician still breathing today.

Well, the breathing part has been a bit tough on Hillary, but she is still wreaking havoc from her perch on the left.

Now, the media is fighting back against Donald Trump’s wall again, in a  roundabout way, by decrying the treatment of illegal aliens on the border.  Mind you, these are technically criminals who just trespassed in America for purposes unknown except for on a case-by-case basis, but the left would rather they not spend any time under lock and key.  It’s not “fair”, apparently.

The latest battlecry in the left’s quiver has been “Abolish ICE”, the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency.

Several prominent Democrats who are mulling a bid for the White House in 2020 sought to bolster their progressive credentials this week by calling for major changes to immigration enforcement, with some pressing for the outright abolition of the federal government’s chief immigration enforcement agency.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York said Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE, has “become a deportation force.”

“You should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works,” she told CNN late Thursday.

Gillibrand wasn’t the only avowed leftist to get agitated in such an incredibly imbecilic manner either.

Her comments follow similar sentiments expressed by Sen. Kamala Harris of California over the past week. In interviews with multiple outlets, she has said the government “maybe” or “probably” should “start from scratch” on an immigration enforcement agency.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who sought the Democratic nomination in 2016 and is mulling another run, has stopped short of his colleagues’ calls to dismantle ICE. But he has also been quick to note his vote opposing the 2002 law that paved the way for ICE to replace the old Immigration and Naturalization Service following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Of course, this is like saying that we’re going to stop the issue of police brutality by doing away with police departments nationwide.  While technically it gets the job done, it also completely reshapes society in a way that would never, ever work.

On immigration, the democrats would rather kill the dog than be forced to pick up his droppings…and that is an incredibly dense outlook.

Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Had Grand Chinese Ambitions in 2015

This certainly raises a few new questions…

Published

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, has been heavily criticized in recent weeks, as he begins to sell hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of art to anonymous buyers around the world. As one can imagine, the idea that such vast amounts of money are pouring into the First Family without any transparency has led to concerns about foreign interests gaining a foothold in the White House via untraceable transactions. New reporting regarding Hunter Biden’s art dealer is now exacerbating those worries. The art dealer representing the president’s son has longstanding ties to China and said in 2015 that he wanted to be the art world’s “lead guy in China.” Georges Berges, who is representing Hunter Biden as he ventures into the art world, has talked about his business dealings in China in the past, but his reported ties could pose an ethics issue as he sells Biden’s art to anonymous buyers. Here is where it gets wild: Berges said in a 2015 interview with Resident that he wanted to be the art world’s leader in China. “My plan is to be the lead guy in China; the lead collector and art dealer discovering and nurturing talent from that region,” Berges said. “I plan to find and discover and bring to the rest of the world those I consider China’s next generation of modern artists.” He also said that that he believes “China’s economy is transforming the global economy and everything is changing because of a rising China,” and that he was fascinated by “cultural impact” China is “having on the world.” “Cultural power is real power. That is the reason America continues to be the capital of the world, because of its influence on culture for generations and on an unrivaled global level,” Berges also said. “And I…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
