I’m NOT A Liberal

I have to chuckle at how badly people can take something you say and mangle it beyond recognition. I recently had occasion to be a “victim” of misunderstanding on a recent post I wrote as a guest-blogger on another site.

New York Brings True Every Americans Nightmare On Illegal Immigration

The newly elected mayor Adams is bringing some heavy changes within less than a month of governance with the Big Apple.

New York City has taken a huge step towards vindicating every intelligent political observer that has made such an argument by allowing over 800,000 non-citizens to vote in local elections.
“I believe that New Yorkers should have a say in their government, which is why I have and will continue to support this important legislation,” Adams said in a statement on Saturday.
Mayor Adams said that while I “had some concerns about one aspect of the bill, I had a productive dialogue with my colleagues in government that put those concerns at ease.”

“I believe allowing the legislation to be enacted is by far the best choice, and look forward to bringing millions more into the democratic process,” he added.

Axios reported on the development, while soft-peddling the fact that Adams had lied during his campaign by posing as a “moderate.”
“Adams initially expressed concern over the legislation, which the City Council approved a month ago, but the Democratic governor ultimately supported the measure and allowed his 30-day time limit to veto the bill to expire, according to AP,” Axios reported. “If the implementation is not curtailed by a judge, New York City will become the first major city in the country to extend voting rights to noncitizens, per AP.”
What has long-lived as a conspiracy theory allegedly implemented by right-wing pundits that the Democratic Party has pursued lawless and reckless policies to benefit from immigration policies, is now a fact. New York City just proved it.

Novak Djokovic Wins Appeal To Stay In Australia

The World’s number one tennis player has just won his visa appeal in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia after the government refused to give him the required visa ahead of the Australian Open.

Although the Australian government tried to push the hearing by 48 hours, the court order by Judge Anthony Kelly said that the visa had been refused without prejudice. The hearing was scheduled for Monday at 10 a.m. and here’s what happened after the lengthy hearing.
“Novak Djokovic has been released from immigration detention in Australia, with federal judge Anthony Kelly re-instating the tennis player’s visa,” The Epoch Times reported.
“Judge Kelly ordered that Djokovic’s passport and all other personal effects be returned to him, with the order pronounced in open court at 5.16 p.m.
The attorney representing the federal government, Anthony Tran, said the government would comply with the orders, but Immigration Minister Alex Hawke is still considering using his discretionary power to cancel Djokovic’s visa.

Kelly said if the government exercises its power to cancel the visa, Djokovic will not be permitted to return to Australia in three years, but it could be appealed.

He demanded that if the government decided to enact the powers, the court was entitled to be informed.
At the hearing, Kelly deemed the decision to cancel Djokovic’s visa “unreasonable” after the player had been told, at 5.20 a.m. on Jan. 6, that he could have until 8.30 a.m. to respond to officials.”
The minister for Home Affairs, Karen Andrews, has filed a submission against the appeal on Jan. 9, expressing that Djokovic can still be detained despite court orders.
“An order for immediate release does not prevent re-detention if there is the power to detain,” the submission read. The tennis player is now set to be released from immigration detainment.
This issue went viral across the globe.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has publicly stated that he would not comment on the matter.
“That’s purely a matter before the courts at the moment,” he said at a press conference in Canberra during the federal hearing.
However, he also referred to Greg Hunt’s letter addressed to Craig Tiley dated on Nov. 29, saying the federal government’s advice to Tennis Australia has been very clear.
“But in relation to the government, our government, the federal government’s advice to Tennis Australia, that was set out very clearly in November.”

Rep Scalise Calls out Biden for Getting Bulldozed by Teachers Unions, ‘Talk is Cheap’

On Friday, Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA), Ranking Member of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis wrote a letter to President Joe Biden about the problematic issues resulting from Teachers Unions hijacking in-person learning and shutting down schools.

Scalise began the letter reminding the President that “On January 21, 2021, you issued Executive Order 14000 stating, ‘it is the policy of [my] Administration to provide support…for safe, in-person learning as quickly as possible.’
Then again, “On January 4, 2022, you stated, ‘[w]e know that our kids can be safe when in school…That’s why I believe schools should remain open. They have what they need.”
“On January 5, 2022, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki doubled down on your Administration’s commitment to maintain in-person learning stating, ‘we want schools to be open, the President wants them to be open and we’re going to continue to use every resource and work to ensure that’s the case.”

TRENDING69 Percent of Hispanics Disapprove of Biden Administration’s Handling of Immigration
Despite Biden and his press secretary’s seeming commitment to the safety and educational wellbeing of children, Scalise notes the President is being stomped on by Teachers Unions. “Unfortunately, many Teachers Unions across the country disagree with you and are actively undermining in-person education. It is unclear if you are willing to stand by your statements, stand up to the Unions, and advocate for America’s children. We insist you do so.”

Scalise writes, “Teachers Unions have repeatedly jeopardized America’s children’s education and livelihoods throughout this pandemic. Even as teachers were prioritized for vaccines, many refused to return to in-person instruction. Even worse, classes for Chicago Public Schools (CPS) were abruptly cancelled on Wednesday January 5, 2022 after the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) voted to cancel in-person learning and refused to show up to work, despite no scientific basis for their decision.”
The letter continues with more proof:
Dr. Leana Wen, a professor of public health at George Washington University, said, ‘schools remain one of the safest places for children from a #covid19 transmission standpoint.’ Vaccines are widely available for anyone over five years of age who wants one and $190 billion was allocated to reopen schools safely. There is absolutely no reason for students to be forced to learn virtually.
Student learning loss due to remote or hybrid learning is astronomical—failing grades are rising and child suicide rates are surging. Among third through eighth graders, math and reading levels were all lower than normal this fall. The gaps were largest for Black and Hispanic students, and schools with high poverty rates. Children and teenagers are experiencing a mental health crisis of historic proportions—in fact, your own Surgeon General agrees and the American Academy of Pediatrics declared a national state of emergency in children’s mental health. Suicide attempts have risen sharply for adolescents with suicide attempts by 12 to 17 year old girls rising 51 percent from early 2019 to early 2021.These unnecessary disruptions from the CTU pose additional risks to children’s mental health, learning, and social relationships.
We agree that schools should remain open and with Press Secretary Psaki’s statement that we should “ensure that children are not enduring the mental health impact of not being in school, that there are not gaps in learning. This includes schools everywhere, including in Chicago.”
Talk is cheap unless it is backed up with strong, decisive action. It is imperative that you do everything in your power to ensure students are learning in-person so they can begin to make up all that they have lost throughout this pandemic. We stand ready to assist the Administration in any way we can to ensure our students can learn in-person.

More Deadly Fentanyl Has Been Seized at U.S. Borders Than Heroin For First Time in History

History has been made in the worst of ways. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data shows 2021 was the first time in American history that federal law enforcement seized more of the deadly drug fentanyl than heroin at our borders.

Data shows 11,200 pounds of fentanyl was seized in 2021 compared to 5,400 pounds of heroin. The numbers were double that of 2020’s fentanyl seizures. 319,447 pounds of marijuana, 190,861 pounds of methamphetamine, 97,638  pounds of cocaine and 10,848 pounds of ketamine were also seized in 2021.
Taking the 2022 fiscal year into account, 2,158 pounds of fentanyl has already been seized. 277 pounds of heroin have also been seized in the same time period. The Washington Examiner reports:
Not only were fentanyl seizures at the highest level ever recorded, but fentanyl overdoses within the United States also hit new highs, indicating the success that transnational criminal organizations had in pushing their deadly products to the public. A DEA investigation this fall found a direct link between criminal drug organizations in Mexico and fentanyl-related overdose deaths.

Many drug users are unaware they are taking the substance because street drugs are being laced with fentanyl, making even the most dangerous of illicit drugs deadly.

The Examiner adds, “Because just a few grains of the substance is all it takes for a user to feel its effect, its value per ounce is higher than other drugs, such as cocaine or methamphetamine. For example, the DEA states 2 milligrams is enough to kill someone who inhales, consumes, or injects it.”
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) additionally “seized 20.4 million pills that were fake versions of prescriptions and pumped full of fentanyl. The pills were enough to kill every American, according to the DEA.”
Due to small dosages of the drug being so potent, “it also makes it significantly easier for the criminals transporting it to sneak into the country.”
The Examiner also reported on the deadly drug’s connection to Wuhan, China:
Mexican cartels purchase the ingredients for fentanyl from labs in Wuhan, China . The cartels will produce the fentanyl from those ingredients and push it into the U.S. Chinese-based financiers launder the profits for the cartels out of the U.S., back to China, and on to Mexico.
The cartels are in the business of selling whatever drug brings in the most money and is easiest to produce. Through the decades, federal law enforcement at the U.S.-Mexico border has seized millions of pounds of drugs — most of which was marijuana.
Over the past five years, marijuana seizures have significantly declined as U.S. states legalized recreational cannabis and legal grow operations began in the U.S. Because marijuana can only be grown in certain climates, similar to cocaine, it made drugs such as fentanyl and methamphetamines more attractive because they can be produced anywhere, any time.

Biden Administration Refuses to Answer Tough Questions on Border Crisis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle when it comes to helping illegal immigrants do things, well, illegally, he wants the perpetrators to have consequences.

Speaking specifically about contractors who are flying illegal immigrants around the country, DeSantis said, “They’ve done over 70 flights in the last six months, dump people here. And we had – a few weeks ago – one of those people that Biden dumped, ended up committing murder in northeast Florida.”
“Our view is, if they’re going to be dumping, we want to be able to facilitate transfer to places like Delaware, and, so, we have $8 million in my new budget to be able to do that” he added. He is also looking to pass legislation that will ban contractors who work with the Biden administration on the flights from doing business with the state of Florida.

“We are going to pass legislation that says if you are facilitating Biden’s policies—which is effectively a mass human smuggling operation—you are not going to be able to do business with the state of Florida or other local governments,” DeSantis said.
Fox News reports “DeSantis’s office has previously claimed that the Biden administration has flown migrants to Jacksonville, Fla., in order to ease crowding at border facilities.”

“On average, there are 36 passengers on each of these flights. And that has been going on over the course of the summer through September,” Florida public safety czar Larry Keefe told the Washington Examiner in November.
Earlier this year, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed a New York Post report that the administration was flying migrants from Texas to New York. Psaki said unaccompanied minors on those flights were “en route to their final destination to be reunified with their parents or vetted sponsor” reports Fox News.

Former Afghan President Claims He “Didn’t Know” He Was Fleeing Country

Former President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani claims he did not know he was leaving the country when his security team told him to leave Kabul as the Taliban closed in on the city in August.

Ghani made the claim in an interview with the BBC, his first interview since fleeing Kabul, saying that he had “no inkling” the morning of Aug. 15 that he would be leaving the country.
In the weeks before the fall of Kabul, Ghani promised repeatedly that he was willing to die for his country. However, according to the BBC, Ghani fled after his security team told him they would “all be killed” if he remained in Kabul, and that he ran away with the intention of flying to Khost, apparently unaware that the city had fallen to the Taliban. Ghani instead went to Uzbekistan and then the United Arab Emirates, where he has remained.

“He did not give me more than two minutes,” Ghani told the BBC. “My instructions had been to prepare for departure for [the city of] Khost. He told me that Khost had fallen and so had Jalalabad.”
“I did not know where we will go. Only when we took off, it became clear that we were leaving [Afghanistan]. So this really was sudden,” Ghani claimed.As the BBC noted, after fleeing Afghanistan, “Ghani was roundly criticized by many in Afghanistan including his vice-president Amrullah Saleh, who called it ‘disgraceful.’”

In the interview, Ghani also blamed the United States for the fall of his country, claiming that his government was not involved in negotiations with the Taliban.Ghani also denied allegations that he left the country with millions of dollars in cash, which is currently being investigated by the United States.
“The US government’s inspector general in charge of investigating misuse of aid money in Afghanistan says he’s ‘looking into’ claims that former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and his subordinates stole millions of dollars before fleeing,” the New York Post reported. “Ghani is accused of stealing $169 million when he left Afghanistan as the Taliban neared Kabul. His abrupt departure allowed the radical group to take the Afghan capital two weeks before the chaotic final US troop pullout.”
