This Video of College Students Talking About the Migrant Caravan Will Make You Fear for America’s Future

This is terrifying.

Published

One of the biggest stories of the month of October is the migrant caravan, which is nearly 7,500 people strong, making its way from Central America to the United States border in search of asylum.

The caravan is currently in Mexico and has once again ignited the flames of passionate discourse in regard to the important issue of immigration and border security. There’s little doubt in the minds of many Americans that the caravan and how various candidates running for office in this year’s midterms approach the issue, will have a major impact on the outcome of the election.

Campus Reform recently went out and asked students what they thought about the caravan, visiting Lockhaven University in Pennsylvania.

The answers will make you terrified for the future of America.

When asked whether the U.S. should open the border to the caravan, most students shared the same sentiment: yes.

“I think we should let them in, give them a fair chance at a better life,” one student said, while another echoed her point, saying, “it’s dumb that we stole this land […] and now we’re gonna point at someone else and tell them they can’t come in here.”

One student explained his reasoning by saying, “I’m open to the idea of letting an influx of migrants come in because I think diversity creates strength.”

Some students were in support of securing the border and forcing people to enter the country legally. Among them was one female student who said: “You have to prove yourself […] to not be a threat to the country and show motivation to benefit our country.”

What did the rest of the students say when asked who, if anyone, the U.S. should stop from crossing the border?

Watch the video to find out:

Open borders are dangerous for a number of reasons, most of which should be obvious to anyone with a penny’s worth of common sense.

Would you leave your front door open for strangers to just willy-nilly come into your home? Of course not. That would be ludicrous. Such reckless behavior would increase your chances of being a victim of violent crime exponentially.

The same principle can be applied to our country and border security. If we don’t have a secure border, members of terrorist and criminal organizations will filter into our nations and people will die. Resources will be depleted.

To do such a thing is poor stewardship of life and liberty.

In other words, no, we shouldn’t have open borders.

Arizona Takes Bold Action in Attempt to Block Biden Vax Mandate

BOOM!

Published

There is perhaps no more heated debate in our nation today than that which surrounds the COVID-19 vaccines, their safety, their efficacy, and their necessity.

Our country has long been home to an enormous anti-vaccine movement, which has its roots in both holistic medicine and the body sovereignty movement, with some taking extreme, conspiracy-laden views out on the fringes.

So when the COVID-19 vaccines began to arrive in the public space, there was already a rather effective network in place to oppose their use.  And, of course, the idea that these inoculations would be mandated by the federal government just sent these advocates into overdrive.

Now, in what is likely one of the most powerful responses to Biden’s mandate yet, the State of Arizona is turning to the courts.

Arizona’s attorney general on Friday filed a request for a temporary restraining order to stop the Biden administration implementing a controversial vaccine requirement as a lawsuit filed last month moves forward.

“Once a vaccine has been administered, it can never be undone,” Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement announcing the move. “The COVID-19 vaccine mandate is one of the greatest infringements upon individual liberty, federalism, and the separation of powers by any administration in our country’s history.”

Arizona first sued in September after President Biden announced measures that will require federal workers and private sector workers in businesses with more than 100 employees be vaccinated or take a COVID test weekly. It is expected to affect more than 100 million Americans.

The Commander in Chief has been stern on the subject, however.

“We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden said from the White House. “This is not about freedom or personal choice. It’s about protecting yourself and those around you.”

The indignant nature of the federal response will not sit well with the anti-vaccine crowd.

Biden Admits That He Has ‘No Answer’ for High Gas Prices

Just in time for the holidays, no less.

Published

on

Within the conservative corners of the internet, a new phrase is hitting the economic nail on the head:  Bidenflation.

The concept is simple:  The Biden administration’s consistent missteps have now brought a very real fiscal emergency to the United States in the form of rampant, near-runaway inflation.  There are a myriad of factors involved, including the ever-worsening supply chain issues that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has attempted to blame on the unvaccinated.

Now, with gas in ultra-liberal California cresting $7 per gallon, the President is openly admitting that he has no solution for the situation.

President Biden admitted during a CNN town hall Thursday night that he has no immediate solution to the problem of spiking gas prices and suggested that Americans would not start seeing relief at the pump until next year.

“My guess is, you’ll start to see gas prices come down as we get by and going into the winter – I mean, excuse me, into next year, 2022,” the president told moderator Anderson Cooper at the Baltimore event.

“I don’t see anything that’s going to happen in the meantime that’s going to significantly reduce gas prices.”

And then…

“I must tell you, I don’t have a near-term answer,” Biden added before musing on the possibility that he could “go in the [Strategic] Petroleum Reserve and take out and probably reduce the price of gas maybe 18 cents or so per gallon, [but] it’s still gonna be above three bucks.”

This economic squeeze looks to be coming to its crescendo at exactly the wrong time, as American consumers look to begin their annual holiday spending blitz in the coming weeks.
