Napolitano Forever Open Borders

Napolitano Forever Open Borders

By Joe Guzzardi

In Janet Napolitano’s 35-year-long professional career, she’s held important and influential positions. Napolitano has been President Clinton’s appointee as the U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona and was twice elected as Arizona’s governor. At one time during her Arizona governorship, many Democrats considered her a possible presidential candidate.

Napolitano Forever Open Borders

Eventually she became the Senate-confirmed Department of Homeland Security Secretary. After Obama left office, Napolitano accepted a position as the University of California’s president, an appointment fraught with controversy because she had no background as an academic administrator.

Napolitano resigned from UC effective August 1, 2020. Now that Napolitano is retired, she can devote full-time to her favorite cause, advocating for illegal immigrants. During her tenure at UC, Napolitano announced that no one, including campus police, could cooperate with federal officials on any immigration-related request. Napolitano is a University of Virginia Law School graduate, and in legal circles her defiance is known as obstruction of justice.

She also urged the university to file suit against the Trump administration to prevent it from rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. At the time, UC had about 2,400 illegal immigrant students enrolled, and California parents were angry that their citizen children had to compete with and lose out to DACAs for coveted UC admissions.

Given her UC history, and her ineffectiveness at border protection while DHS Secretary and Arizona’s governor, Napolitano’s USA Today Op-Ed that hailed President Biden’s nonenforcement approach to immigration is consistent with her past enthusiasm for open borders. Titled “Biden is Making Immigration Moves that Will Pay Off,” Napolitano repeats age-old approaches that have failed to control illegal immigration in years past, and will be unsuccessful in the future.

Napolitano has forgotten – or cares not to mention – that as DHS Secretary she canceled a $1 billion contract with Boeing to build a virtual fence along the U.S. border with Mexico. Launched in 2005, SBI-Net proposed to monitor the Southwest border with a single integrated surveillance system. But SBI-Net failed because of “technical issues” that, Napolitano admitted to Congress after receiving feedback from Border Patrol agents about its ineffectiveness, created “significant” schedule delays and cost overruns.

Biden’s immigration approach will pay off, Napolitano claims. But she doesn’t identify the beneficiaries – cheap labor-addicted employers. Swiftly processing asylum claims, as Biden has authorized, will quickly create a looser labor market that harms the millions of unemployed or underemployed Americans.

Biden has, Napolitano wrote, ordered DHS to recalibrate its interior enforcement priorities, and focus on convicted criminals, and away from “otherwise law-abiding individuals who pose no public safety threat.” John Sandweg, former Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting director, debunked the long-standing myth that presidential administrations, whether Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43 or Obama, deported nonviolent aliens. Sandweg told the Los Angeles Times: “If you are a run-of-the-mill immigrant here illegally, your odds of getting deported are close to zero.”

Throughout her Op-Ed, Napolitano predictably scorned President Trump’s border successes that included the wall and the remain-in-Mexico policy. And, citing her Arizona gubernatorial, DHS and UC experiences, Napolitano wrote, “I know something about these issues [immigration].” If so, Napolitano has tunnel vision and is overlooking the glaring flaws in Biden’s nonenforcement tactics.

In April, 42,000 illegal aliens escaped into the U.S. interior as overwhelmed Border Patrol agents couldn’t keep up with the inflow of humans – “gotaways” as the Border Patrol refers to them – or drugs. The Epoch Times reported that at least five Texas counties have issued disaster declarations and that one school district has warned parents to “be watchful of your children.”

Taking Napolitano’s immigration perspectives seriously is ill-advised. Remember, in 2010 then-DHS Secretary Napolitano told a U.S. Senate panel that the Southwest border is “as secure now as it has ever been.” In the 11 years since her bold and self-aggrandizing statement, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens have successfully crossed the border, and entered the U.S. where they remain today.

Ed Note: Jeffrey Peterson, who worked for  Janet Napolitano, has this opinion as to why Democrats support open borders.

Darien Scheme William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 5-8-21

A man, a plan? Aye, not so laddie. The Kingdom of Scotland once tried to colonize Panama. It is known as The Darien Scheme. It failed miserably costing 2,000 lives and £500,000. The ensuing financial turmoil led the Scots to accepting that unity with England and Wales wasn’t such a bad idea after all.

Covid Lab Origin Considered By Bulletin Of Atomic Scientists

Covid Lab Origin Considered By Bulletin Of Atomic Scientists — Trust science, fine, but let’s allow skepticism of the scientist. He’s human, after all, and regardless of credentialing can be wrong, even intentionally so.

Almost from the beginning of the Covid crisis, prominent virologist and journals were declaring it to be definitively natural.

It came from bats. Really. No no no, it was not designed in a lab in China. It came from bats. Trump said it came from a lab? No, no, no. Orange man bad. It came from bats.

The authoritative The Lancet declared on Feb. 19, 2020 that suggesting otherwise was a “conspiracy theory”.

A letter from a group virologists led by Kristian G. Andersen of the Scripps Research Institute appeared in the March 17, 2020 of Nature Medicine saying “Our analyses clearly show that SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construct or a purposefully manipulated virus”

The general media accepted these claims without question.

That’s changing.

Nicholas Wade published, May 5, an article about the origin of Covid 19 on the website of the widely respected Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.

While he doesn’t dismiss the possibility of a natural origin for Covid, he fully accepts the possibility — probability, actually — that it came from a lab in Wuhan.

More significantly, that if it should be found to have come from a lab, he lists those culpable for the disaster.

These would be Chinese virologists; Chinese authorities for the cover up — he does not believe the leak was intentional; the worldwide community of virologists whose desire for government money led them to successfully lobby for the removal of restrictions; and, the United States as we were responsible for funding the research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Repeat: The United States was responsible for funding the research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

And from where did this funding come? It was funneled through Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance by The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The directors of those organizations needed to give approval knowing full well for what it would be used. The NIH is directed by Francis Collins.

NIAID? That would be St. Anthony Fauci.

Wade ends his story with this:

What accounts for the media’s apparent lack of curiosity?

The virologists’ omertà is one reason. Science reporters, unlike political reporters, have little innate skepticism of their sources’ motives; most see their role largely as purveying the wisdom of scientists to the unwashed masses. So when their sources won’t help, these journalists are at a loss.

Another reason, perhaps, is the migration of much of the media toward the left of the political spectrum. Because President Trump said the virus had escaped from a Wuhan lab, editors gave the idea little credence. They joined the virologists in regarding lab escape as a dismissible conspiracy theory. During the Trump administration, they had no trouble in rejecting the position of the intelligence services that lab escape could not be ruled out. But when Avril Haines, President Biden’s director of national intelligence, said the same thing, she too was largely ignored. This is not to argue that editors should have endorsed the lab escape scenario, merely that they should have explored the possibility fully and fairly.

People round the world who have been pretty much confined to their homes for the last year might like a better answer than their media are giving them. Perhaps one will emerge in time. After all, the more months pass without the natural emergence theory gaining a shred of supporting evidence, the less plausible it may seem. Perhaps the international community of virologists will come to be seen as a false and self-interested guide. The common sense perception that a pandemic breaking out in Wuhan might have something to do with a Wuhan lab cooking up novel viruses of maximal danger in unsafe conditions could eventually displace the ideological insistence that whatever Trump said can’t be true.

And then let the reckoning begin.

The entire stinking temple needs to come down. Let it be Biblical.
