What happens when everything is about identity

Sorry, but this stuff makes me laugh.  This is the latest from the party that gave us the “squad”:    
Allison Jaslow, executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), resigned on Monday amid complaints that the DCCC is too white. No, seriously, that’s the complaint. Black and Hispanic lawmakers say the DCCC, the Democrats’ major campaign arm, lacks racial diversity and is not doing enough to reach Latino voters and hire consultants of color.
On Sunday, Hispanic Reps. Vicente González (D-Texas) and Filemon Vela (D-Texas) called for Jaslow’s resignation in a statement to Politico. DCCC Chairwoman Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) flew back to Washington, D.C., for a meeting Monday, despite having left with the rest of Congress for the August recess. Jaslow resigned at that meeting, Politico reported.
“The DCCC is now in complete chaos,” Gonzalez and Vela said in their statement. “The single most immediate action that Cheri Bustos can take to restore confidence in the organization and to promote diversity is to appoint a qualified person of color, of which there are many, as executive director at once. We find the silence of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on this issue to be deafening.”
Again, I have to laugh.
So the DCCC is too white?  Not a word about the talent of the people but instead it’s all about their race.  I guess that white liberals are out!
First, what’s this nonsense about hiring a qualified person of color?  So only persons of color need apply?  
Second, what’s this about hiring more consultants for the Latino voter?  Don’t they already get 70% of the vote?  Are they concerned that Hispanics will figure out how Democrats are the pro-abortion party?
The Democrats have gone insane.  If they lose they will blame it on racism.  If they win they will blame their inability to govern on racism, too.
What a disgrace of a party!

Obsessed with what people are not thinking about!

It’s amazing how disconnected from reality the Democrats are.  To be fair, it may not be the majority of the party, but the deluded are the ones getting the attention.
In fact, so many Democrats, especially the elected black congressmen, seem to be living in 1949 Mississippi and relishing the fact that Jackie Robinson is playing second base for the Brooklyn Dodgers.  It’s hard to believe that they don’t see the incredible progress that blacks have made in the U.S.
A recent article by Michael Goodwin is right on target:   
To judge by what they say and do, Democrats are obsessed with two topics: impeachment and race. With Robert Mueller’s disastrous performance driving a stake through the heart of the former, race is shaping up as a defining issue in this week’s second round of presidential debates.
As a New York Times article put it, “The searing fight over race, inequality and history has come to dominate the Democratic presidential contest.” 
Count that as an understatement.
So what are their solutions to deal with our race problem?  They don’t have any.  All they tell is that everyone is a racist, and then everyone is a racist again.
Do they have any solutions for crime problems?  I don’t hear any.
Public schools?  I don’t hear anything except that many Democrats send their kids to private schools and away from the neighborhoods.
As for impeachment, what’s the article that they plan to vote on?  I guess that they will get around to that sooner or later.
Impeachment and race may work in the primaries but will fail miserably in the general election.

Just ask the people who live in Baltimore

Image result for baltimore cartoons
Back in the 1970s, I attended school in Maryland and spent a lot of time in Baltimore.  I was there during a charmed Renaissance headed by mayor and then Governor William Schaeffer.  He oversaw the investment and development of the Inner Harbor and all those residential areas that went up downtown.  It was wonderful, and going downtown was great.
Lately, it’s not so pretty.  The city is a disaster and the one-party rule does not help.
President Trump is challenging Representative Elijah Cummings to do something about his district for a change.  As expected, President Trump is being called a racist for holding “sacred cows” like Representative Cummings accountable.  
As Seth Barron wrote:    
The operative rule in politics these days seems to be that any criticism of a non-white politician from anywhere to their right is, by definition, a racist attack. Nothing Trump said pertained in any way to Elijah Cummings’s skin color or ethnicity, only to his failure as a legislator and political leader to do anything to improve his district. The real question is: Is he right?
In May, the New York Times Magazine ran a cover story called, “The Tragedy of Baltimore.” 
The story details how, in the wake of the 2015 riots — or “uprising” in the view of those who imagine the torching of a neighborhood CVS and the intentional sabotage of the firefighters’ equipment to be revolutionary actions — Baltimore went from bad to horrible: “nothing less than a failure of order and governance the likes of which few American cities have seen in years.”
By any measure of systemic urban collapse, Baltimore is, as Trump said “very dangerous & filthy.” 
Among the largest 30 American cities, Baltimore has the highest crime rate, and is a close second to Detroit for the highest rate of violent crime. 
But for murders, Baltimore is second to no other city, with more than 50 homicides per 100,000 people. 
That puts Charm City in the ranks of Jamaica, Venezuela, and El Salvador in terms of lethality.
Charm city no more, as my old friends who live there will tell you.  In fact, most of my old friends live in the suburbs and avoid the city at all costs.
Where does it go from here?   Hopefully, it will lead more local citizens to question the Democrats running their cities.  Maybe it will occur to some of them that change would be a good thing.

Common sense for a change on the border

Image result for us mexico caravan images
On Friday, President Trump celebrated a couple of important victories.
First, the U.S. and Guatemala negotiated an important deal:
The Trump administration signed an agreement with Guatemala that will restrict asylum applications to the U.S. from Central America.
The “safe third country” agreement would require migrants, including Salvadorans and Hondurans, who cross into Guatemala on their way to the U.S. to apply for protections in Guatemala instead of at the U.S. border. 
It could potentially ease the crush of migrants overwhelming the U.S. immigration system, although many questions remain about how the agreement will be executed.
We will see, but the message is clear.  In other words, the U.S. is sending a message to future caravans that there is no guarantee that they will leave Guatemala.  As a practical matter, it should curtail the traffic.
The border wall decision makes total sense.  It clears the way for the Trump administration to use defense funds for border wall construction.
I’m surprised that it was a 5-4 decision.  President Trump, or any other president, should have the discretion to use funds within a national security context.  In my opinion, the U.S.-Mexico border is a matter of national security, from drug flow to human-trafficking to the potential for terrorist groups to walk into the U.S.
President Trump scores again.  From the pathetic Mueller presentation to the border funding decision to the Guatemala agreement, President Trump is finishing July on a winning streak.

Can someone tell Michael Moore that Cuba is out of medicine?

Image result for cuban healthcare cartoons
Cuba is going through hard times again and medicine is in very low supply, according to news reports:    
Locals on the island have complained in recent months that some drugs are so difficult to find that patients and their families are forced to camp out overnight at their local pharmacy, hoping to secure a prime place in line to purchase some of the small shipments when they arrive. 
The shortage is part of a larger economic crisis on the island that has forced Cubans to stand on lines for hours to buy basic goods like chicken, cooking oil, and flour.
As always, the regime blames everyone else but the system.   
They blame it on providers and banking problems.  In other words, foreign providers demand cash for their orders.  I guess that they are not selling to Cuba on credit anymore.  Can you blame them?  How many times has Cuba restructured its debts?
They blame it on poor domestic production, a problem that the regime has faced since it expropriated private companies in the 1960s.  In other words, once upon a time, Cuba produced its own medicine and imported the rest without difficulty.  We should add that many U.S. drug companies had faculties in Cuba and it worked very efficiently for the island’s consumers.  
They blame the embargo, although it does not stop any European, Canadian, or Latin American company from selling to Cuba.
They blame President Trump, last but not least.
Once again we see that Cuba’s health care system is a disaster.  Only Michael Moore and other leftists who benefit from private health care in the U.S. find something good to say about the Cuban health care system.

Time for Democrats to give up on the impeachment thing


Maybe Speaker Pelosi is the happiest woman in Washington.  She can remind the “impeach Democrats” that impeachment won’t get to first base.  Maybe she can, but the “squad” will be hard to discipline.
The Mueller presentation turned out to be a bust for those invested in impeachment, as Jenniffer Van Laar pointed out:
To be sure, since the Democrats now control the House they had to do something to force Mueller to testify. The Squad and the Justice Democrats wing of the party forced that course of action. Now, they essentially must press forward on impeachment since the Mueller Report punted to Congress. If they don’t press forward on impeachment, they’re essentially admitting they know that everything they’ve said for the past two and a half years is b——-. With a number of Dems in swing districts unable to vote for impeachment, even that will likely fail, and will only make the shriekers look even more unhinged.
Crazy screamers, indeed!
So where is the Democrat who will remind primary voters that impeachment is dead and it’s time to talk about issues that matter to the public?
According to a recent Gallup poll, immigration is #1, not impeachment.  Health care and other issues rank higher, too.
What Democrat will stand up and call on the party to get real and let of go of Trump Derangement Syndrome?  I don’t see one, and that makes the Trump 2020 people pretty happy.

Robert Mueller’s bad day

Image result for mueller cartoons
Like most of you, I have a life and could not sit in front of the TV to watch the Mueller hearings.  I did catch some portions on the radio and it was not a good day for the Democrats.
Mr. Mueller would have been better off spending this July day with Mrs. Mueller somewhere else.
First,  Mueller did not look interested at all.  What I heard on the radio was a man who was not engaged.
Second, the Democrats just blew it big time.  Mueller did not give them what they wanted.
“Responding after the first few hours of the hearing before the House Judiciary Committee hearing, Wallace said Mueller offered little defense of his investigation amid repeated attacks from Republicans. He said Mueller has not put forth much “testimony” or new information.
“I think this has been a disaster for the Democrats and I think it’s been a disaster for the reputation of Robert Mueller. He has seemed very uncertain with his brief. He doesn’t seem to know things that are in the report,” Wallace told Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum during Fox News Channel’s all-day coverage of the House hearings.
“Over and over, Mueller just sits silent and allows the attacks from the Republicans to sweep over him and says nothing.”
Didn’t some one prepare Mueller for the GOP questions?   He looked as clueless as Joe Biden did when Kamala Harris brought up the busing issue.
It may be wise for the Democrats to pull the plug and cancel the rest of the session.  At this point, the Democrats look sillier than Robert Mueller.   
It’s amazing what Trump Derangement Syndrome has done to the Democrats!

A cheap shot at Mariano Rivera

Image result for rivera hall of fame images
It’s a shame that the liberal writer who attacked now Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera will never come to bat against him.   He’d get a quick lesson in “chin music”!
On Sunday, the great Mariano Rivera was inducted into the Hall of Fame.  You can look up his numbers.  Rivera made his money getting outs and usually the last one to win a World Series or other post-season game.
Let’s get a summary from David Harsanyi:    
It’s not surprising that The Daily Beast, whose editor-in-chief blames Israeli Jews for global white nationalism, would find Rivera’s support of Israel problematic (the original illustration for the piece, incidentally, had Rivera standing on a pitcher’s mound shaped like a yarmulke atop a Jewish star).
Nor is it surprising that the piece offers no evidence that Mariano has “served at the pleasure” of the Trump administration—even if you accept the debatable contention that the administration is racist.
Rivera didn’t join the pinstriped Sturmtruppen, he merely accepted a nomination to the Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition. He signed onto the Opioid Drug Abuse Commission. He went to the White House as a delegate for the Special Olympics. He took “friendly photo op” as part of an interfaith conference in Israel with the U.S. ambassador to Israel. These days, I guess all of this qualifies as extremism.
Yes, a lot of things qualify as extremism, racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.  It’s such a long list that no one listens anymore.  Just ask CNN!
Of course, what the Daily Beast is angry about is not really Israel.  After all, many Democrats are more openly pro-Israel than Rivera.
The Daily Beast does not like Hispanics who can think for themselves and consider a point of view outside of the plantation.  The Daily Beast loves great athletes as long as they say that the U.S. is a racist country and refuse to salute the flag.
In the end, Rivera got in the Hall and the Daily Beast lost more credibility.

Mexicans unhappy with violence and turning on Lopez-Obrador

Image result for violence in mexico cartoons
Over the last few weeks, I’ve heard from many Mexican friends about the violence south of the order.  It is no longer cartel vs. cartel.  Instead, it has spilled into urban areas, and people are scared.
Then I saw this post from Mamela Fiallo Flor and the PanAm Post.  She is a university professor, translator, interpreter and co founder of the Cuban Libertarian Party:  
The abrupt decline in AMLO’s popularity in June is mainly because the month was particularly bloody. 
In the first half of June alone, 650 murders were recorded between 6th and 12th June. 
Just on one day, Saturday 8th June, 113 deaths were reported and another 191 on Sunday.
Also in June, in Jalisco, the cradle of one of the most powerful narco-trafficking groups of Mexico, employees of the Intermunicipal System of Potable Water and Sewerage Services (Siapa) discovered 11 garbage bags with corpses. Jalisco reported 76 murders in the first half of June.
As a result, 60% of Mexicans believe that insecurity has worsened in the last seven months.
My guess is that the violence would be bad no matter who was president.  Nevertheless, President Lopez-Obrador is the incumbent and he is catching the criticism.   
In other words, the violence will continue as long as criminal elements can walk cash and guns into Mexico without consequence.  We think of the human traffic north.  In Mexico, it’s the guns and cash going south that everybody talks about.
There are other issues, such as the economy and health care.   
On the economy, it’s hard to understand because the U.S. is growing and the economies usually ride up or down together.  Why isn’t Mexico doing better since the U.S. is doing well?  It’s complicated because it’s the first time that I’ve seen that.
On health care, the Lopez-Obrador made very controversial budget cuts laying off public service doctors and others.  
President Lopez-Obrador has time and it could look different in a year.  At the same time, it may look worse, specially the out-of-control shootings.
One way or another, the honeymoon is over for Presidente LO.

Where is the Democrat who will challenge Omar?

How crazy left is the Democrat Party of 2019?  Look at what is being discussed in the U.S. House.   
This is from Fox News:    
U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution this week supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.
Omar’s resolution seeks to push back against U.S. laws banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they so wish.
While the resolution doesn’t explicitly name Israel or the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, she told media outlets that the resolution concerns the Jewish state.
Israel like Nazi Germany?  Or the USSR?
Representative Omar is free to believe whatever she wants to believe.   Nevertheless, her positions on this and many other issues show a disrespect for Jewish Americans and our long relationship with Israel.
She also has no regard for her own party.  The Democrats are risking losing the House and more state legislatures in 2020.  It means that they will lose more power over drawing up districts as happened after the 2010 ObamaCare wipeout.
Where is the “moderate” Democrat who calls on Representative Omar to resign or stop bad mouthing everybody?   I can’t find one but there is a great opportunity here for a Democrat to make a name for himself or herself.

The kind of Mexico I remember

Image result for caravans mexico images
Over the last year, I’ve posted here that many of my friends in Mexico were shocked with their country’s tolerance of illegal immigration.
In other words, the Mexico that I remember was brutal, and I mean brutal, with anyone crossing its southern border.  
Often, Central Americans have pointed out that they were scared to death crossing Mexico.  I recall a young woman who said that she and her friends were sure that they’d be raped crossing Mexico.   Thankfully, this group of young women was not but their fears were legitimate.
Here comes a poll from south of the border, a joint venture between the Washington Post and Reforma from Mexico City:    
More than 6 in 10 Mexicans say migrants are a burden on their country because they take jobs and benefits that should belong to Mexicans. 
A 55 percent majority supports deporting migrants who travel through Mexico to reach the United States.
Those findings defy the perception that Mexico — a country that has sent millions of its own migrants to the United States, sending billions of dollars in remittances — is sympathetic to the surge of Central Americans. 
Instead, the data suggests Mexicans have turned against the migrants transiting through their own country, expressing antipathy that would be familiar to many supporters of President Trump north of the border. 
Who knew that MAGA is now MMGA or Make Mexico great again?
The results of this poll are not surprising to any of us who know the country.  In my case, I worked with a U.S. company in Mexico City years ago.
Mexicans have often told me that they need to send their people north and Central Americans would only compete with them up there.  It’s sort of like it’s okay for us and not for them!
So here we are.  After a few caravans, Central Americans are seeing the Mexico that we’ve known all of these years.

Maybe they can stop lying about their country


Image result for beto o'rourke images
It would be better if we could talk to each other.  However, it’s hard to do when so many on the left speak so poorly about their country.  
I like what Rich Lowry wrote about this:     
Beto O’Rourke — the losing Texas candidate for the US Senate who bootstrapped his way into becoming a losing presidential candidate — had a message for refugees who had come to America: Your new country is a hellhole.
The former congressman told a roundtable of refugees and immigrants in Nashville last week: “This country was founded on white supremacy. And every single structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression.”
Just in case the newcomers were inclined to believe that they had escaped to the greatest country on Earth — an open, dynamic, generous society that, whatever their struggles now, will afford them opportunities unimaginable back home — Beto was there to tell them of all its sins.
Wow.  Where did go off course in the U.S.?
Once upon a time, you would hear stuff like this about the U.S. in a speech at the UN or some left-wing “mental case” at a communist meeting.  
For the left, the world came to an end the night that President Trump was elected.  It has been driving them crazy for two-plus years.
For me, and many others who came here because we thought that it was the opposite of what Beto is saying, it makes me angry and sad.
I am sad because Beto knows better.  It’s hard to believe that he really believes that nonsense.
I am angry because this is confusing a lot of young people vulnerable to demagoguery like this.
Where did we go wrong?  I don’t know but it is very sad.
