Now Here's How Trump's Visit to the Southern Border Went

The same day President Joe Biden trekked down to the southern border— for only the second time during his presidency— former President Trump made the trip to show the real consequences of Biden’s reckless policies. 

Trump unleashed a mountain of criticism on the Biden Administration for allowing nearly six million illegal migrants to cross into the United States without taking a single ounce of responsibility for the massive crisis they have created. 

“We had the most secure border and people weren’t coming because they knew they weren’t going to get in,” Trump said on Thursday. “And we weren’t promising free education, free medical, free everything. I mean, all the promises that are made, no wonder they come.” 

Trump was referring to Democrat-led states such as New York and California, which are handing out freebies to illegal migrants. 

New York recently announced they are giving away pre-paid credit cards with up to $1,000 that will be reloaded monthly to illegal aliens for food. Meanwhile, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) revealed that illegal immigrants will have access to free healthcare. 

“I mean, you look at what this Governor ‘New-scum’ from California, isn’t that his name, ‘New-scum’? What he’s done to California is unbelievable,” Trump said of Newsom. “People are pouring in, they think they’re going to get medical aid. And our soldiers, our vets aren’t being taken care of.” 

Trump highlighted how Biden’s invasion has resulted in crime skyrocketing in just one year under the president’s term. 

"This is a Joe Biden invasion...Last year almost half of all ICE arrests were criminal aliens charged with more than 33,000 assaults, 3,000 robberies, 6,900 burglaries, and 7,500 weapons crimes. This is all migrant crime. 4,300 sex crimes,” he said. 

The former president accused Biden of having blood on his hands after a 22-year-old Georgia University nursing student was found dead after a Venezuelan illegal migrant murdered her in broad daylight while she was running. 

Trump was greeted with a warm welcome as he arrived in Eagle Pass, Texas from a flurry of supporters and those who are fed up with Biden's refusal to do his job. The former president was praised for visiting the epicenter of the border crisis, while on the other hand, Biden made the trip to Brownsville, Texas where the issue is much more stabilized. 

"My agents, they're mad as hell that President Biden went to Brownsville, Texas...rather than coming to Eagle Pass, Texas which has been the epicenter," Border Patrol Union President Brandon Judd said, standing alongside Trump. 



Joe Biden's Border Visit Went Just As Expected

President Joe Biden took time out of his precious “busy” schedule of eating ice cream and laying on the beach to make a trip down to the southern border as his immigration crisis hinders his 2024 re-election chances. 

Thursday’s border visit came with confusion and frustration as Biden was seen shuffling his way along the U.S.-Mexico border in Brownsville, Texas. The president’s efforts to secure the border have been non-existent for the past three years. However, now that his presidency is on the line and Americans are fed up with his lack of handling the border, the Biden Administration has decided to do something about it. 

Biden was accompanied by newly impeached Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who also has played a heavy hand in allowing more than six million illegal migrants to enter the U.S. 

The president’s visit left more questions unanswered, as he wrapped up his trip without declaring a plan to make America safe again from illegals. 

Mayorkas, who has been ousted over his failure to keep illegal immigrants out of the country, vowed to continue enforcing “the law and work to secure our border.”

He also used the opportunity to criticize Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX), who has taken countless measures to bring awareness to the border crisis and reveal how Biden’s policies have destroyed the U.S. 

Biden also dared to complain about how long the asylum process takes after undoing former President Trump’s “Remain In Mexico” policy that turned millions of illegal migrants away from the border.

Hours before Biden was set to meet with officials at the southern border, the Border Patrol Union refused to welcome the president, telling him to "keep our name out of your mouth." 

"But even if he were to put the proper policies in place at this late hour, he’d be doing it only to try to save his Presidency. And self-serving actions when time is winding down should always give Americans pause. Common sense dictates that as a lame duck, he’d revert to his open border policies if re-elected," the union said in a statement. "Biden is going to the border now solely to try to save himself. Border security should never be about politics, it should always be about the safety and security of this great nation and the American people." 

Border Patrol Union President Brandon Judd criticized Biden for visiting Brownsville-- which is a more calm area of the southern border-- rather than Eagle Pass, Texas which is the epicenter of the immigration crisis.

Blue Laws for Red Citizens

One state prosecutor and one civilian plaintiff have already won huge fines and damages from former President Donald Trump that may, with legal costs, exceed $500 million.

Trump awaits further civil and criminal liability in three other federal, state, and local indictments.

There are eerie commonalities in all these five court cases involving plaintiff E. Jean Carroll, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, New York Attorney General Letitia James, federal special counsel Jack Smith, and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

One, they are either unapologetically left-wing or associated with liberal causes. They filed their legal writs in big-city, left-wing America -- Atlanta, New York, Washington -- where liberal judges and jury pools predominate in a manner not characteristic of the country at large.

Two, they are overtly political. Bragg, James, and Willis have either campaigned for office or raised campaign funds by promising to get or even destroy Trump.

Left-wing billionaire Reid Hoffman funded Carroll's suit.

Smith sued to rush his court schedule in hopes of putting Trump on trial before the November election.

Three, there would not be any of these cases had Trump not run for the presidency or not been a conservative.

Carroll's suit bypassed statute of limitation restrictions by prompting the intervention of a left-wing New York legislator. He passed a special bill, allowing a one-year window to waive the statute of limitations for sexual assault claims from decades past.

Until Trump, no New York prosecutor like James had ever filed a civil suit against a business for allegedly overvaluing real estate assets to obtain loans that bank auditors approved and were paid back in full, on time, and with sizable interest profits to the lending institutions.

Bragg bootstrapped a Trump private non-disclosure agreement into a federal campaign violation in a desperate effort to find something on Trump.

Smith is also charging Trump with insurrectionary activity. But Trump had never been so charged with insurrection, much less convicted of it.

Willis strained to find a way to criminalize Trump's complaints about his loss of Georgia in the 2020 national election. She finally came up with a racketeering charge, usually more applicable to mafiosi and drug cartels.

Fourth, in all these cases, the charges could have been equally applicable to fellow left-wing public figures and officials.

President Joe Biden, like Trump, was accused of sexual assault decades earlier by former staffer Tara Reade. Yet Reade was torn apart by the media and the left for inconsistencies in her memory. By contrast, the wildly inconsistent and amnesiac Carroll won $83 million from Trump.

Smith created the precedent of charging Trump for unlawfully removing classified files to his private residence.

But the government simultaneously did not charge Biden for similar offenses. Yet Biden had removed files not for two years but for more than 30. He stored them not in one location but several.

His rickety garage was a mess, not a secure family compound like Trump's estate. Moreover, Biden did so while a senator and vice president, without any presidential authority to declassify almost any presidential document he wished.

Biden never came forward to report the crime for over 30 years -- until Trump was charged. Indeed, he was caught on tape six years ago, admitting to his ghostwriter that he possessed classified files but never reported it.

Bragg might have noticed that both Hillary Clinton (fined $113,000) and Barack Obama (fined $350,000) broke campaign financing laws. Neither was subject to federal criminal charges by local prosecutors.

An array of left-wing celebrities, politicians, 2004 House Members, former Senator Barbara Boxer, D-CA, and failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams have all recently challenged elections. They sought either to delay or redo ballot counting or, on the federal level, to sidetrack electors to ignore popular votes in their respective states.

These lawfare cases are part of other efforts that were highly partisan and without merit. Recall the Trump "Russian collusion" hoax and the "Russian disinformation" laptop farce.

In another first, some blue states are suing to take Trump's name off the ballot for "insurrection," a crime for which he has never been charged.

Total up the deaths, damage, and length of the summer 2020 Antifa/BLM riots. Then, compare the tally to the one-day January 6 riot.

The former proved far more lethal, long-lasting, and destructive. Yet very few of the 14,000 arrested rioters in 2020 were ever prosecuted, much less convicted.

By contrast, the Biden administration sought to jail hundreds for crimes allegedly committed on January 6, such as "illegal parading."

We are entering a dangerous era in America.

Ideology and party affiliations increasingly determine guilt and punishment. Opponents are first targeted, and then laws are twisted and redefined to convict them.

The left is waging law fare with the implicit message to political opponents: either keep quiet or suffer the consequences.

Al Sharpton Hears About It After Telling Black Trump Supporters They Have 'No Shame'

By Sister Toldja |

Reverend Al Sharpton is infamous in NYC circles for inciting deadly race riots, engaging in antisemitism, and foisting racially-tinged rape hoaxes on the American populace.

Sharpton, who has been a controversial figure for decades in American politics, has never apologized for his actions, and has never been called to account by the same political party and media that have canceled Republican politicos for saying/doing much less.

Instead, Sharpton has been welcomed with open arms by the Democratic Party machine as a two-time Senate candidate, a one-time mayoral candidate, and a one-time presidential candidate whose endorsement and blessing is frequently sought, along with his purported "wisdom" and "guidance."

It's one of the clearest-cut examples of Democrat privilege you'll ever find.

Writing about Sharpton saying something stupid or offensive is a bit like a dog bites man story, but sometimes it deserves calling out, which brings us to the latest instance.

On a recent broadcast of his MSNBC show "Politics Nation," Sharpton went on a rant about Trump's comments in South Carolina from Friday about black voters allegedly embracing him in part because of his viral mugshot. Sharpton proclaimed it was part of a pattern of remarks from Trump and his surrogates that, in Sharpton's view, should offend and alienate black voters.

"And those blacks that are standing there with him, have you no shame?" he asked toward the end of the segment.

“Have you no shame?” ’s @real_sharpton asks of Black voters who are standing behind Donald Trump. Repost


In response, it was pointed out that Sharpton himself has had a roller coaster "frenemies" relationship with fellow New Yorker Donald Trump that goes back for quite some time:

Sharpton shaming Black voters for not towing the party line is really something to behold considering...



Lattina Brown, who unsuccessfully ran to serve on the New York City Council in 2021, perhaps best summed up a lot of the reactions from black Trump voters on Twitter in her reply to Sharpton's shame games:

You cannot tell black people who they can and cannot vote for. Tired of people like you shaming black people for finally having their own voice. We have been done such a disservice for decades and we are always last. It’s their constitutional right and really not for you to judge those who no longer want to be part of the sick radical agenda!

A person's vote is their own, and it is most certainly not owed to any political party. Their vote should be earned, fought for - not expected, and certainly not taken for granted.

Besides, Al Sharpton is the absolute last person on this planet who should be lecturing anyone about the supposed need to feel shame. I mean, seriously. Think about it
