Voters Let 2020 Democrats Know What They Think About Their Call To Decriminalize Illegal Border Crossings

Just goes to show how out of touch Democrats are with regular people.



Many of the individuals gunning for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination have expressed a desire to see illegal border crossings decriminalized, making them civil violations instead.

However, this particular policy position seems to be out of step with how actual voters — real American citizens — feel about the issue, a fact made clear by a recent poll conducted by Hill-HarrisX.

Here’s the skinny from TheBlaze:

Forty-one percent of voters surveyed believe illegal border crossers should face criminal prosecution, compared to only 32 percent that believe the act should only be punished by civil fines. Twenty-seven percent of respondents were unsure on the issue.

Of the Republicans surveyed, 67 percent favor criminal prosecution for illegal border crossings. Only 24 percent of Democrats think it should be a criminally prosecuted. Among independents, 36 percent believe it should be a crime, and 33 percent believe it should be a civil violation.

Democratic presidential candidates have come out in favor of decriminalizing illegal border crossings. Former Obama Housing and Urban Development secretary Julian Castro and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) publicly supported decriminalization first, with other candidates taking the stance during the first debates.

Democrats like Castro have tied criminalization of border crossing to the separation of immigrant children from their parents.

“The reason they’re separating these little children from their families is they’re using Section 1325…to incarcerate the parents and separate them,” Castro said during the first Democratic primary debate.

The bottom line here is that Democrats are yet again out of touch with what actual Americans think and feel about an issue. Rather than continue to push their own agenda down on everyone else, what the left needs to do is rethink their own position on the issue and move more in line with what the public believes to be right and true.

Democrats have been trying so hard since Obama first got elected to push a vision of America down the throats of voters that most of us do not want. This is what alienated so many folks from the Democratic Party in 2016, and if they don’t make drastic changes to their platform, it will happen to them all over again.



Social Media Giant Permanently Banishes Pro-Life News Outlet

So much for free speech.




Our nation appears destined to fall into the clutches of a technological oligarchy, headed by the likes of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, and there is very little that can be done about it. These two men, who run Twitter and Facebook, respectively, have been ruling their public forums with an iron fist, hiding behind the concept that their private status is a workaround for the First Amendment.  Their gargantuan reach and influence has made it possible for them to act with impunity, steering the narrative on any number of subjects, from Donald Trump to the wonder of maternity. The latest affront to free speech comes to us from Facebook, where a pro-life news organization has been completely banished. Facebook permanently banned LifeSiteNews, a popular pro-life news outlet, for publishing “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.” As justification for unpublishing LifeSiteNews, Facebook cited an article posted on April 10, 2021, titled “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.” Facebook said they erase Facebook pages that publish “vaccine discouraging information on the platform.” The site’s staff was livid. “This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” said LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” Roberts said. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots.” This is just the latest in a long line of Orwellian moves by these social media mavens, and may in fact be just another harbinger of something far more sinister to come.

CDC Readies Cruises, Complete with Human Guinea Pigs

Fingers crossed!



As the world prepares for its grand reopening, there are a number of high value industries that are eagerly awaiting permission from medical authorities to resume operations. First and foremost, there are the service industries:  Places like restaurants, bars, music venues, and sports arenas whose entire livelihood depends on whether or not people are being allowed to gather in public.  While many of these venues are now beginning to ramp up their capacity, there are issues bringing some of these workers back into the fold thanks to the enhanced unemployment benefits provided by the federal government. And then there’s the tourism industry, whose regulatory structure is far more susceptible to interference by government agencies. Now, after over a year of stagnation, it appears as though at least one facet of this wide-ranging corporate amalgam will be given a chance to sail on. Cruise lines can soon begin trial voyages in U.S. waters with volunteer passengers helping test whether the ships can sail safely during a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave ship operators final technical guidelines Wednesday for the trial runs. The CDC action is a step toward resuming cruises in U.S. waters, possibly by July, for the first time since March 2020. A spokeswoman for the cruise industry’s trade group said the group was reviewing the CDC instructions. So, how will this work? Each practice cruise — they’ll run two to seven days — must have enough passengers to meet at least 10% of the ship’s capacity. Volunteers must be 18 or older and either fully vaccinated or free of medical conditions that would put them at high risk for severe COVID-19. The ship operator must tell passengers that they are simulating untested safety measures “and that sailing during a pandemic is an inherently risky activity,” the…
