The Border Deal And More…

I haven’t read the border deal that was released last night, but after listening to the crafters of it I can tell you this. I would vote no.
Why?
Let me start with this question. If you tried to cross the border of China what would happen? Russia?
Of course, you would be stopped and detained. You would expect that, wouldn’t you? You would say, “Of course, I was entering the country illegally.”
So why is our border different? Why do we need a terrorist action that kills and maims before we close the border? We know innocent citizens are dying every day from attacks, robberies and fentanyl is not enough. We know car hijackings, police beatings in Times Square and higher crime don’t matter.

Closing the border when 5,000 try to cross illegally is a ridiculous notion. What are we going to do, count crossers from Florida, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas and California as a running daily total?
Do crossers from Canada count?

Why do we have to let one, repeat one, illegal person enter when we have a legal means and list of people who are waiting?
From my standpoint, it’s zero. Close the border, secure the border.
Let’s start with President Biden (and Chuck Schumer who so happily supported him), rescinding the executive orders signed on day one of your administration.
Then enhance the security.
Lead, act like a leader of a great nation, protect our borders, because the blood that is flowing and will be enhanced is on your hands.

A Few Other Thoughts

Is she for real? Rep. Ayanna Pressley is blaming Walgreens closing a store on Racism.
The truth is the store has been racked by outrageous amounts of theft for a long time and losing money. The theft is causing the rest of us higher costs.
It’s racism alright, the failure to lock up criminals, prosecute them and protect the innocent citizens of the area, state and nation. It’s racism against the law-abiding and innocent.

In case you missed this too, Denny’s and In-N-Out Burgers announced they are closing all stores in the Oakland area for the same reason.
The entire community loses when they elect left leaning politicians and DA’s who refuse to protect the innocent.

While on appeasement, here’s a story that broke Friday and should have gotten much more coverage:
The Biden administration and its partners in Europe ignored warnings about the growing danger posed by Houthi rebels because they were fixated on pursuing a new nuclear deal with Iran, according to a top Yemeni official. Ahmad Awad bin Mubarak, who represents the U.N.-recognized Yemeni government, said the U.S. and Europe prioritized nuclear negotiations with Tehran over the worsening security situation in Yemen and the expanding military capabilities of the Iran-backed Houthi rebels. The decision to prioritize nuclear talks with Iran over all else, he suggested, paved the way for the rise of the Houthis into a militant outfit that has disrupted commercial shipping in the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden and other vital waterways in the region. Mr. Mubarak, a former Yemeni ambassador to the U.S., said he and other officials in his country urged the U.S. and Europe to take a tougher stance against the Houthis, but it became clear nuclear negotiations were more important.

Here’s another story that should have been more widely covered:
The former NYPD deputy commissioner then relayed what NYPD detectives have told him. “What the detectives are telling me is they have crews here that operate in New York, do all their stealing, then go to Florida to spend the money and then come back,” Miller recounted. “And I’m like, ‘Well, why don’t they just stay and steal in Florida?’ And they said, ‘Because there, you go to jail,'” he explained.

EV’s Again

Another EV pullback. Did you hear this story?
Volvo Car said it won’t provide further funding to Polestar, the electric-car maker it created with Volvo’s Chinese owner Geely— the latest EV retrenchment by the global auto industry. The auto industry’s pivot to electric vehicles has been rocked by setbacks this year, just as a flood of new battery- powered models is hitting showrooms. Earlier this week, French automaker Renault said it has decided to cancel the initial public offering of its electric-car unit Ampere. Ford Motor, meanwhile, has slashed production of its electric F-150 Lightning. Rental car firm Hertz has said it was dumping about one-third of its EV rental car fleet, replacing the cars with gas-engine vehicles.
Also, earlier this week, Tesla warned of notably lower growth this year. Data earlier this year has shown a slow- down in EV sales growth in the U.S., automakers delaying or cutting back on plans and anxi- ety rising among dealership owners. In a sign of investor unease about automakers’ march toward an EV future, Volvo shares surged more than 20% Thursday on its decision to cut off funding to Polestar.

It’s hybrids easing into EV’s. Why don’t they get it?

It’s Monday Morning And We’re Off And Running.
