GOP Immigration U.S. Senate WTF?!

Lindsey Graham Claims ‘40,000 Brazilians With Gucci Bags’ Are Invading Connecticut

Someone really needs to stage an intervention for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) because he’s starting to sound like some of the deranged primetime hosts on Fox News and is even fabricating facts and figures, much like his good “friend,” the failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president, Donald Trump.

Matter of fact, Graham was appearing in Sean Hannity’s show when he began spinning a bizarre (and mostly fact-free) tale about Brazilian immigrants coming into the United States so they can make their way to Connecticut.

Yes, he really said that.

Specifically, Graham told Hannity:

“Now, what [Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas did today, calling off all the raids of worksite, is going to be another incentive for people to come, because the word is out. You come, you claim asylum, you never leave. The policy choices of Biden are all over the world now.

“We had 40,000 Brazilians come through the Yuma Sector alone headed for Connecticut wearing designer clothes and Gucci bags. This is not economic migration anymore.

“People see an open America. They’re taking advantage of us. And it won’t be long before a terrorist gets in this crowd.”

A terrorist? You mean like the group of Proud Boy domestic terrorists who showed up at the Capitol on Jan. 6 and proceeded to engage in all sorts of illegal behavior, including the beating of numerous law enforcement officers? No need for them to immigrate because they’re already here even though every last one of them needs to be in prison for the next 100 or so years.

The Washington Post was unable to verify Graham’s massive lie, but a spokesperson for the senator was only too happy to double down on the fabrication:

Kevin Bishop, a spokesman for Graham, defended the senator’s comments, citing what he saw during his recent trip to the border and news reports about Brazilian immigrants. Bishop also provided photographs of luggage and shoes taken at the border.

“They have had thousands of Brazilians coming through there,” Bishop said. “As Senator Graham noted in Yuma, the luggage was nicer than his own.”

None of the luggage in the photos provided to The Washington Post appeared to be Gucci. The most obvious clothing in the photos was a pair of fairly clean Puma tennis shoes without shoelaces.

Quite clearly, Lindsey made up his story just so he could go on Hannity’s show and terrify the gullible lemmings who watch the network and believe the BS they’re fed.

Twitter users, however, were only too happy to provide the mocking the senator so richly deserved:

Jen Psaki Schools Peter Doocy For Making A False Equivalency Between Immigration And Public Health

Once again Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to take Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy, and when she was finished, Doocy was babbling like a four-year-old.

The confrontation came when Doocy asked about foreign nationals coming into the United States and whether or not they are being asked to provide evidence they don’t have COVID-19 or have been vaccinated:

“Is someone asking the foreign nationals for proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test?”

Psaki began to respond:

“Well, first of all, I can walk you through the steps.”

Doocy interrupted:

“That’s the policy for people who fly into the country. So why if somebody walks into the country right across the river, does somebody ask them to see their vaccination card?”

The press secretary hit Doocy with both barrels:

“Let me explain to you again, Peter, how the process works, as the individuals come across the border and assessed if they have symptoms, and if they have symptoms they are quarantined. That is the process. They are not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time.”

And yet, Doocy still couldn’t comprehend what he’d just been told:

“But they’re here. What’s the difference?”

Clearly annoyed by Doocy’s inability to grasp what she was saying, Psaki told him:

“It’s not the same thing. These are individuals — as we’ve noted and has been discussed — we are expelling individuals based on Title 42 because of Covid, because we want to prevent a scenario where large numbers of people are gathering, posing a threat to the community and also to the migrants themselves.

“So those are the policies that we’ve put in place, because the CDC continues to recommend Title 42 be in place, given we’re facing a global pandemic.”

Apparently, Peter Doocy hasn’t bothered to look at today’s news and see that the United States is expelling Haitian refugees who are seeking to come into the country at this time. But what can be done about the unvaccinated Americans who refuse to do their part and get the shot? What can we do about Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News and their bullshit lies/conspiracy theories about the COVID vaccine?

Doocy works at Fox, so it’s safe to bet he’s been vaccinated because Fox has a vaccine mandate. How’s that for hypocrisy?

Ted Cruz Is Furious With The VP For Visiting The Border – After Attacking Her For Not Visiting The Border

No one in the U.S Senate is more universally loathed than Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Hell, he’s so disliked that he’s been given the title of “Most Hated Senator.” Even his GOP colleagues are said to despise Cruz.

On Wednesday, Cruz proved yet again why he’s less popular than the bubonic plague.

For months now, the Texas senator has been complaining that Vice President Kamala Harris hasn’t visited the U.S.-Mexico border, remarking:

“It speaks volumes that Border Czar Harris is still avoiding visiting the southern border.

“She should come to Texas and see the crisis firsthand,”

VP Harris will indeed be visiting the border this Friday, according to the White House, which announced her planned trip to El Paso, Texas:

How did Cruz react to news that the VP is going to the border? He went on Fox News and attacked her for going to El Paso instead of where he wanted her to go:

“She announces that they’re going to El Paso. El Paso is a lovely city, it is a beautiful place in Texas. It is not also — it also doesn’t happen to be the locus of the crisis. … She’s going where the height of the problem isn’t.

“Let me tell you what Kamala needs to do. Kamala, you need to go to the Rio Grande Valley.”

Some assholes are never happy. Especially a Grade A asshole like Ted Cruz.

And if Harris had gone to the Rio Grand Valley, it’s a safe bet Cruz would have whined about that, too. Because he’d rather demagogue everything the way he does with every issue. Cruz is the kind of person who would have complained about Jesus turning water to wine because he’d been expecting bourbon.

Ted Cruz is a hypocrite and an asshole. He just proved that yet again.

Maria Bartiromo Claims China Is Sending ‘Doctors And Engineers’ Across The U.S.-Mexico Border

If you haven’t seen Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo’s so-called “show” lately (and literally NO ONE would blame you for avoiding it like the bubonic plague), you may not be aware that the once reliable business reporter has gone batshit crazy and now cranks out bizarre conspiracy theories that would make Glenn Beck blush. That is, when she isn’t verbally kissing Donald Trump’s ass like some sort of middle-aged fan girl.

On Sunday, Bartiromo hosted her show from the U.S.-Mexico border, speaking with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), who is also fond of lying for political advantage or financial gain.

During her conversation with Abbott, Bartiromo claimed that China is sending “doctors and engineers” across the border:

“One guard told me that they apprehended a group from China. And the group from China told them that they paid $50,000 a head. And by the way, these were scientists and doctors and engineers from China.”

One guard told you that, Maria? Can we have his or her name so we can verify the veracity of your claim?

Bartiromo then shifted gears and began talking about “cartels” making money smuggling people into the United States, as if that’s something that wasn’t happening on Trump’s watch:

“It seems like the cartels are really winning and making big money here. Someone told me this week that they’re making $400 million monthly. I mean, the numbers, because they’re charging $4,000 a head, they’re taking 2,000 people a day into America. And depending on where you come from, the numbers are even higher.”

“Someone told me.” Was it a member of your crew, Maria? Or was it a gullible Fox viewer who got their “information” from some shady “news” website? Again, Bartiromo didn’t give a shred of proof to back up her accusation.

There was also this gem of bullshit from the fact-free Ms. Bartiromo:

“You have to ask, why the CCP is sending these people through the border, obviously they don’t want to be noticed. What are they doing when they get here?”

Actually, the first thing we need to do is question your “sources,” Maria.

Eager to join the misinformation-fest, Abbott remarked:

“It could be espionage. They’re forgetting about the people from China, from Iran, from terrorist-based nations. It could be espionage.”

What about Russia? Could they be from Russia? Nah, because the Republican Party has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Kremlin, so it’s much better to blame China and Iran, the GOP’s current favorite targets for military attack.

The good news is that if Maria Bartiromo ever loses her gig at Fox, she can always find work at RT, which is also owned by Vladimir Putin and his cronies.

Immigration The Trump Adminstration

Former White House Aide Stephen Miller May Face Criminal Charges For Human Rights Abuses

During the four years of the Trump administration, Stephen Miller was one of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump’s closest and most influential advisers, especially on the issue of immigration, where he urged Trump to separate immigrant children from their parents and place them into internment camps reminiscent of the horrors inflicted upon Japanese Americans during the Second World War.

But if one member of Congress has her way, Miller will soon be facing charges of violating the human rights of thousands of people.

The Hill reports:

A House Democrat on Wednesday called for former Trump White House adviser Stephen Miller to be jailed, citing what she called ‘human rights violations’ at the southern border.

“Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, said on The Intercept’s ‘Deconstructed’ podcast that Miller should be “behind bars” for his role in the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border policy.

“I think he committed heinous human rights violations, and I think that those around him [who] helped plot this out should be held accountable, as well.”

And while Rep. Escobar will no doubt have plenty of Democratic colleagues who also believe Miller should indeed be locked up for the things he did to immigrants seeking asylum in the United States, she acknowledges that it will be a challenge to get the former White House adviser formally charged for his crimes against humanity:

“That is going to be very difficult, but it kills me that these people could potentially walk away and even potentially rebuild their reputations. I find them to be just among the most reprehensible, abhorrent people that our generation could have ever produced.”  

The House Judiciary Committee is currently taking a long look at the way the Trump administration dealt the issue of immigration, including the incarceration of toddlers in horrific conditions: Forced to sleep on cement floors, denied essentials such as soap and toothpaste, and treated like criminals.

For his part, Miller just formed a new legal nonprofit organization he calls America First Legal, which he claims is aimed at “resisting the radical left’s agenda.”

Sounds just like something a neo-fascist would say, doesn’t it?
