Bussed Migrants Prove Limits to Inviting the World

Bussed Migrants Prove Limits to Inviting the World

by Joe Guzzardi

Emotions are raw; temperatures are heated, and embattled parties are exchanging strong statements. The uproar’s cause: illegal immigrants being sent to sanctuary cities. New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C. mayors Eric Adams, Lori Lightfoot and Muriel Bowser allege that Texas, Florida and Arizona governors – Greg Abbott, Ron DeSantis and Doug Ducey, respectively – are playing politics with migrants’ lives, and that racism motivates their actions.

After calling Abbott a racist, Lightfoot openly questioned the Texas governor’s Christian values. Bowser declared that the migrants’ arrival constituted a public emergency, and asked the White House to summon the National Guard, an ignored request. Fulfilling a promise he made in April and upping the ante in the immigration debate, DeSantis sent two planes with migrants, mostly Venezuelans, to Martha’s Vineyard, an elitist playground. In the spring, the Florida Department of Transportation received DeSantis’ approval to set aside $12 million to fly the aliens to Martha’s Vineyard and Delaware. Abbott sent two busloads to D.C.’s Naval Observatory, Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence.

DeSantis and the other governors counter the mayors’ political grandstanding charges by saying that the financial burden illegal immigrants create should be shared among the states. In the governors’ collective opinions, no destinations are better suited as new homes for aliens than sanctuary cities whose leaders have long avowed their willingness to accept them.

Days after the migrants arrived in Chicago – and the total 500 headcount is miniscule compared to the millions that have crossed into Texas – Lightfoot changed her hospitable tone. She shipped the aliens unannounced to suburban Elk Grove Village. Mayor Craig Johnson was as displeased as Adams, Lightfoot and Bowser with the influx of mostly poor, undereducated and unskilled into his municipality. Johnson asked: “Why are they coming to Elk Grove?”

Johnson’s question is valid. From the moment migrants cross the border, during their resettlement, and indefinitely into the future, taxpayers fund the exorbitant costs.

new financial analysis from the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that to provide for the 1.3 million illegal aliens that Biden has released into the interior and the 1 million estimated gotaways, taxpayers will be assessed $20.4 billion annually, a sum that will be added to the existing $140 billion that’s allotted each year to the existing, long-term illegal alien population. FAIR estimates that each illegal alien costs American taxpayers $9,232 per year, and further calculates that the $20.4 billion could provide Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to more than 7 million additional needy families, fund and expand the entire National School Lunch Program, hire more than 315,000 police officers to combat the nation’s escalating crime wave across the country, and hire 330,000 new teachers, which would end America’s long-standing teacher shortage.

The billions of dollars spent on migrants is against a backdrop of unmet needs in American families. A Brandeis University study found that 35 percent of American families, despite working full-time, year-round, do not meet the “basic family needs budget” – the amount needed for rent, food, transportation, medical care and minimal household expenses. For black and Hispanic families, 50 percent cannot afford life’s fundamentals. The Brandeis survey showed that low-income families with children are struggling; more than two-thirds of full-time workers don’t earn enough to make ends meet. Those families would need to earn about $11 more per hour to fully cover basics costs, or about $23,500 in additional annual earnings. Black and Hispanic families would require a $12 hourly income spike, $26,500 annually, to meet the family budget.

Biden campaigned as Scranton Joe, working America’s champion. But as president, Biden has abandoned his commitment to lower- and middle-class families. Instead, Biden has rewarded illegally present foreign nationals with billions of dollars. As a result, Scranton Joe is as unpopular in his hometown as he is nationwide. In Pennsylvania’s 8th District that includes Scranton, Biden’s approval rating is 38 percent, indicative of his failures.

Sept 16 Pennsylvania Constitution Lesson

Sept 16 Pennsylvania Constitution Lesson — This month’s discussion of the Pennsylvania Constitution starts 6:45 p.m., tonight, Sept. 16, on GoToMeeting.

To attend by phone call 1-872-240-3212 and use the access code 511-504-3212.

Subjects scheduled to be discussed include  the major organizations in Pennsylvania that are working to destroy our republic; The Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Act 77 Majority Decision and Opinion; parts of Article V, Judiciary, in the Pennsylvania Constitution; getting county sheriffs to reclaim constitutional powers. 

These meetings are held the third Fridays of every month.

Bill Denison, of the promoters, says he has been informally asking candidates and officeholders, including police, if they you ever read state constitution. He reminds them they have sworn “support, obey and defend” it. 

“It’s not looking good,” Denison says.  “Three law enforcement officers separately gave the exact same answer: “I’ve never seen it”!!  Several others had only read small portions back at the police academy, and so far only two have read it all. “

He encourages citizens to distribute to them copies of the Constitution which can be obtained for free from state senators.

The Pennsylvanian Constitution can be found on-line here. It’s OK to skip around if you are just starting.

Denison said legislative officeholders and candidates more claim to have read the constitutions.

“I then have a hard time believing them when their actions demonstrate chronic constitutional ignorance and apathy,” he said.  “My favorite was the state rep candidate who said he had not and would not read the Constitution.  ‘Why not?’, I asked.  He replied, ‘Because I don’t remember what I read’!   Well then, I wonder how he graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and became a fighter pilot.”

Chesco Sued For Unmonitored Drop Boxes

Chesco Sued For Unmonitored Drop Boxes — America First Legal (AFL) and counsel Wally Zimolong, Sept. 15, filed a second lawsuit in Pennsylvania on behalf of registered voters in Chester County, Pa. against the Chester County Board of Elections and its board members to compel their immediate compliance with Pennsylvania’s election laws in connection with ballot drop boxes.

Chesco has 13 drop boxes authorized for usage in the November general election. Voter services, however, failed to monitor two of them during the primary, according to the suit, to ensure they were being used in full compliance with the Election Code, including Pennsylvania’s statutory requirement that only one person was delivering his or her own ballot. 

Especially damning was that these boxes were open 24/7.

There were security cameras impotently watching which recorded 330 individuals depositing void, invalid, or multiple ballots at once without repercussions, according to the suit.

AFL seeks the court’s immediate action to enjoin the Election Board from accepting, counting, or canvassing any ballots that contravene the lawful use of drop boxes or to receive invalid ballots from drop boxes in Chester County and commingling these with validly cast ballots and to compel the County to put into place the following measures:

  • Drop boxes must be physically monitored in-person to assure that the person delivering the ballot is only delivering his or her own ballot or is an authorized agent of a disabled voter with the proper affidavit signed by the voter and verified by the election board.
  • Chester County Election Board shall otherwise fulfill its statutory duties to ensure that void and invalid ballots are not commingled and counted in all future elections.

The lawsuit can be found here.

Ron Johnson For Pennsylvania Senate Seat

Ron Johnson For Pennsylvania Senate Seat

By Bob Small

Ron Johnson is a write-in candidate for the US Senate from Pennsylvania, with the support of the Pennsylvania Constitution Party.   

No, not the incumbent senator from Wisconsin. This Ron is a disabled veteran of the Iraqi War who has worked in construction and for Walmart, until his disability caused him to quit.

He is a self-described Constitutionalist.

The Pennsylvania Constitution Party was unable to secure enough signatures to  place him on the ballot hence the write-in campaign.

Johnson’s issues include the  border wall, immigration, opposition to Covid mandates, support for parental rights in education, and  the weaponization of federal agencies.

Johnson says that he has been at the Convention of States   and at the signing of the Liberty Pledge  in New Hope    

Johnson says he’s running to “keep our freedoms intact”.

He appears to be the only write-in candidate associated with an established political party.

Vax Honcho Calls Cops On Kirsch

Vax Honcho Calls Cops On Kirsch — Steve Kirsch, the brilliant inventor who now calls himself a journalist — his Substack page has nearly a million followers, after all, which is more than twice as much as than Daily Times, the Daily News and the Inquirer combined — had the police called upon him when he tried to contact Dr. Grace Lee at her Palo Alto, Ca. home.

Grace got the note

Dr. Lee, a professor of pediatrics at Stanford University School of Medicine, chairs the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which arguably makes her the top vaccine safety person in the world outside of the CDC.

Kirsch said he emailed and texted her but did not receive an response, so he went to her house. He rang the bell without getting an answer. He waited 20 minutes and then went back to his car and wrote a note. He returned to the door and hung the note. As he turned to leave he was confronted by two policemen.

He explained what he was doing and gave the officers the note. The officers let him go. When he looked back he saw the officers giving Dr. Lee the note which read:

Vax Honcho Calls Cops On Kirsch

Dr. Lee,

Do you want to see the Israeli safety data? Please let me know yes or no. Lives are at stake. Steve Kirsch 650-xxx-xxxx.

Kirsch figures he did his job and that it’s time for Dr. Lee to do hers.

He recorded the conversation with the police which you can see at the link below.
