The Surge

Why is there suddenly a massive surge of immigrants rushing to the southern border? Well, it turns out that the answer is pretty simple; people respond to incentives.

You may have thought that Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop was back to business as usual after his Supreme Court decision. Not so fast.

Kids in cages, or something else?

Did you know terrorists keep office hours? No? Well just ask Merrick Garland, former Supreme Court nominee and current Attorney General nominee. He’ll set you straight.

The Washington Post has turned on a dime when describing detention facilities at the border. What a difference an administration makes!

And a cousin of mine had a great observation regarding the track women’s sports have been on in her lifetime.

Illegal immigration trends

When Trump started his term, illegal immigration started to trend down. With Joe Biden the presumptive President-elect, what do you think that trend is doing now?

Politicians make verbal gaffes; it happens all the time. But watch how the media coverage changes depending on the party of the politician.

I’ve found a news source that lets you see how various other sources cover a story based on their bias.

Illegal border crossings plummet

Illegal border crossings have plummeted this past year. How did that happen? Has 100 new miles of a border wall been that successful, or is there some other reason? (Hint: There is some other reason.)

Five states are stepping up and trying to save women’s sports from an invasion. Biological men are beginning to take over, and Republican lawmakers are trying to protect it.

The 6-year-old and the cricket

A funny Facebook post from a friend of mine shows the similarities between what a 6-year-old does with crickets and what our government does.

A college student looking for beer money comes into a windfall and does the right thing with it. One reporter decides to smear him. The results say more about the reporter and today’s Cancel Culture(tm) than it does about the college student.

Was Michael Brown murdered?

I’ve got, not just a quote, but a bunch of quotes from a public figures on the subject of immigration. Read them, and you might think this is some xenophobe. Think again.

Five years ago, white police officer Darren Wilson shot black teen Michael Brown. Wilson was cleared of all charges, but some Democratic presidential candidates remembered the anniversary of that shooting by smearing the cop. Wonderful.

Little Sisters of the Poor

One listener, Russ Rooney, called in to the Voicemail Feedback Hotline with two topic suggestions. That’s what I talk about this time out.

He asks a question about cities that have declared themselves sanctuaries for illegal immigrants, yet have a huge homelessness problem. How can cities bring in more people when they are already failing their current residents?

The Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of nuns ministering the elderly poor, got a unanimous Supreme Court decision in their favor to have nothing to do with abortion coverage for their employees. But that’s apparently not good enough for 13 states and DC from suing the nuns separately.

Russ wrote a letter to the editor of 2 of his local papers to get this lawsuit some coverage because they are totally ignoring it, even though his state is joining in this lawsuit. Where’s the journalistic integrity? See below the show transcript for his letter.

Hamas human shield

Palestinians launched over 600 rockets at Israel. Most of the world gave a collective yawn. But there is no other country that would ever allow this without a response. Yet when it happens to Israel, people like Rep. Ilhan Omar come out to blame Israel for responding.

Oh, and the Democrats running for President? Well, at least Omar said something. That crowd couldn’t be bothered.

California, following on the heels of New York and Massachusetts, raised its minimum wage recently. Suddenly, their restaurant industry is feeling the brunt of that. Who could have predicted that? (Hint: conservatives.)

And listener Barb has an update from the southern border.

The crisis on the border is real

Colleges and universities are supposedly where free speech and association are encouraged. Well, I have an example of where the students were all for those until they realized that it meant freedom for everyone, and there were some groups for whom they simply couldn’t allow that.

The Border Patrol has its hands full, literally. The detention centers and courts that process illegal immigrants are not able to handle the surge of people coming across the border. But hey, it’s not like it’s a crisis or anything.

And, oh yes, kittens.

“Free” health care for NYC?

Listener Barb sent me an article showing that the IRS, as tireless as they are collecting money, seems to be asleep when it comes to giving out your tax money to illegal immigrants.

New York City is going to try an experiment with “free” health care. That doesn’t seem very surprising. What is surprising is what they predict it will cost.

And listener “OhioHistorian” has an opinion on my story on the Scouts BSA from last episode.
