For a long time, I've believed that the governments of these Latin American countries with high (illegal) immigration rates need to step up and improve things so that their people won't want to leave as much as they do. But so often they don't, and the U.S. is left with the bill, so to speak. This was getting better under Trump, which could in turn have led to stronger Latin American governments and better lives for their people.

Crazy Times Scrapbook, October 2023
"No nation in history has survived once its borders were destroyed..."
Censorship doesn't just apply to books...
I love The Babylon Bee. I think it's hilarious and smart and that it has a great perspective--see below. And I love it even more now that I know that it's devout Christians who are running it (which I suspected anyway).
"The Chinese Communist Party is responsible for more unnatural deaths than any other in world history."
I wish Trump were still president because of the immigration mess alone. And Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas knows it!
This was in The Wall Street Journal on the day of the October 7th attacks (it had gone to press and been published before the attacks happened). This peaceful scene happened just the day before when there was no inkling of the horrendous terrorist attack to come the very next day.
Possible signs of the times from a gospel perspective (which in the end is the only perspective that's actually going to matter)...
Another Democratic politician admits it. I'm glad they're speaking the truth even though it goes against their party's stance.
I wish more people understood this. I copyedited a book about this very subject several years ago. It was written by an undercover government agent who had vast objective knowledge of Islamic terrorism from his work, and this is pretty much exactly what he said in the book.
Remember that there's a big difference between the peaceful practice of Islam and Islamic fundamentalism/terrorism.
I approve of the way President Biden has handled the Israel-Gaza conflict. I think it's the best thing he's done in his whole presidency.
Because of my work with the nonprofit I work for, I was invited to join a special Zoom meeting with John Kirby in October. It was a literal call with the White House. It was so cool!
The Wall Street Journal editorial board is right about this for our foreign policy.
Good for Utah!
I continue to strongly believe that TikTok should be banned in the U.S. That's not censorship, it's national security, which includes the mental health of our citizens, especially the young, impressionable ones.
Good points about some bungling that was done by the U.S. in the Israel-Gaza war.
I know, I know, but I'm still suspicious. Someday, if the election really was stolen, the truth will come out.
This is such a good and telling point about anticolonialism.
This article really helped me to understand why so many (unhinged and poorly educated) Americans are supporting Palestine, and why groups like Hamas exist and what their ultimate goal is (which is satanic and purely evil in nature).
"...like other totalizing ideologies, anticolonialism contains all the elements needed for moral derangement..."
