I mean, whoever would have - could have - seen this coming?

illegals

Report: 90% of Illegals No-Shows in Dallas Immigration Court

Are these poor, bedraggled urchins - most are at least teenagers, some quite a bit older - likely to overstay?

Might be.

Overstay their welcome by anyone besides cynical and self-interested politicians and enablers?

That's a Bingo!

And a question for you do-gooders out there:

Just Who is Paying the $10K Coyote Fees for Illegals to Get Here?

A recent interview with the human traffickers known as "coyotes" reveals that they charge from between $5,000 to $10,000 US per individual to be guided from Central America to our border only leave the illegal immigrants to their own devices to stream across the border to take advantage of Obama’s amnesty policies. But, are we expected to believe that the dirt poor–and often pre-teen children–are paying these fees?

And if they aren’t, who is?

No . . . wait . . .

I know this one. I know.

We are!

Bingo indeed.

Clarification

Here, this should help.

Or, as more likely intended . . .

Not help much.

Nothing, it seems, is what it seems.

A case that cannot be - never can be, consistent with the requirements of due process, requirements never really a feature of the world of international law, such as it is - dismissed.

Politics ain't beanbag.

It may, however, be golf.

I confess I do not recall whether our Dear Leader, when anointing himself our fourth-best president, thought that he was better than the first member of that exclusive club.

washington

Remarkably, yes, he did.

Perhaps he was thinking of the Biblical idea that the last shall become first.

Unlikely.

Still waiting, though.

Now what?

Police protect Jewish students from Pro-Palestinian mob…in Boston

For the third time in eight days, Boston police were forced to intervene when a small group of student Israel supporters was swarmed by demonstrators screaming anti-Semitic epithets and initiating physical contact, said students involved in the incident…

A handful of Jewish students with Israeli flags was surrounded by demonstrators shouting anti-Semitic epithets and – according to two of the students – a tense minute of "pushing and shoving." Soon after the “die-in” ended, Brett Loewenstern — a Berklee College of Music student and pro-Israel activist – entered the fray with his boyfriend, Israeli-born Avi Levi. According to Loewenstern, he and his boyfriend’s combining of an Israeli flag with a rainbow flag – the symbol for gay rights – set off a hailstorm of insults from demonstrators.

Among other things, the shouts included "Jews back to Birkenau" and "Drop dead, you Zionazi whores," said Loewenstern and other witnesses…

During a gathering outside the Boston Public Library on Thursday evening, police had to protect Valdary and student activist Daniel Mael from what Valdary called "hundreds of people shouting 'Allah is great.'"

A spokesperson from the Jewish Community said . . .

Alan Dershowitz said . . .

A spokesman for the Moderate Muslim Community said . . .

A spokesperson from Brandeis University said . . .

Nothing.

and yes, broken glass littered the streets

This is part of the immense cost of open immigration, the mixing of cultures long opposed to one another, and will not - cannot - end well.

Because, yes, it's an exceptional symbol still.

We Remember

A sad moment on a Sunday afternoon so many years ago.

A brave, dauntless man giving it his all, vanquished that afternoon, if only temporarily, 50 years ago, and now living with dementia, but a memory of that afternoon, captured in black-and-white for all time.

tittle

The black-and-white photo was taken in 1964, the final year of Tittle's career. It hangs in a silver frame at his home in Atherton, California, not with the prominence befitting one of the most iconic pictures in sports history but lost among many mementos from a Hall of Fame career.

The picture is now 50 years old, and Tittle is now 87. He does not remember much anymore, but that photo is seared in his mind. "The blood picture," he calls it.

He hates it.

Read it all.

Remember the moment.

Remember. . .

Him.

They're Here; It's Queer

Get over it?

I think not.

They bring with them, in some cases, disease and other dark things, dark, unsavory circumstances, gang violence, rampant criminality.

They've come, as they themselves tell us, in response to the tacit invitation of our president to come to our southern border, there to be recognized for who they are (and who they are not - citizens. or legals of any kind), to be welcomed onto our burgeoning welfare roles. They fly our friendly skies at our expense.

The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms . . . This is not the CBP or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel . . .

We are allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer. The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing.

They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth…We do not know who these people are, we often have to solely rely on who they say they are, where they say they came from, and the history they say they have. We know nothing about most of them, ICE releases them into the American public, and now they are boarding aircraft at will with a simple paper document that anyone can easily alter or reproduce themselves.

Is there anything that this president will not do?

Other than, of course, the duties of his office?

I believe not.

Oh no, way worse than that, even if not as bad as he will be, time-and-again, for all the tomorrows remaining in his second term in office.

Hell, I'd settle for pathetic . . .

Any day.

Even a Tuesday.
