Throw money at it
With that caravan (not “army,” as per liberal complaints – Fox News' Jesse Watters sarcastically suggested we call it a “parade”) of migrants now 7,000 strong and heading across Mexico, determined to cross our border en masse, it’s attracting some new participants. People who’ve already been deported multiple times see this as their chance to come back yet again to the US. I assume that if they make it, they’ll immediately head for some Democrat-run “sanctuary city,” where multiple deportees have more legal rights and protections than US citizens, no matter how many times they’ve been sent back or how many crimes they’ve committed against US citizens.
President Trump has warned that they will not only be greeted by the National Guard, but he will cut US aid to their home nations (Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador) that are unwilling or incapable of doing anything to keep their populations from illegally invading the US.
Naturally, that is not sitting well with some prominent Democrats. Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland says the US needs to “invest” more money in Central American aid, joining media wunderkind Beto O’Rourke’s call for sending millions more tax dollars to these nations.
But the problem with these nations isn’t a lack of money at the top. Sending their governments planeloads of American tax dollars is not going to end the corruption and crime that drives people to leave, nor is that money going to filter down to the people. If you actually believe that, then take a look at Venezuela, where the people can’t even access food, medicine or toilet paper -- but the richest people in the nation, those who have billions of dollars socked away in foreign bank accounts, just happen to be the leaders of the socialist government (and in one case, the daughter of the former leader.) Isn’t that a strange coincidence?
This is the predictable Democratic response to all problems, large and small: “Something wrong? Throw more tax money at it!”

White House Warning
Everyone makes mistakes, but intelligent people learn from those mistakes and try something different (as voters did in 2016, and they're reaping the benefits of it in stronger growth and historically low unemployment.) The leaders of today’s Democratic Party seem utterly incapable of grasping that when an idea proves to be a failure, the solution isn’t to try it again and again, and keep doubling down on it. Seriously, who wants to put people like that back in charge of the government? If the thought of what they want to do (again) horrifies you as much as it does me, then form a caravan, go to the polls and all vote Republican.
Sandra Day O'Connor
I hope you’ll join me in sending prayers and good wishes to Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female Supreme Court Justice. She is 88 and just announced that she has early stage dementia and “probably Alzheimer’s disease.” She says she can no longer participate in public life and will spend “the final chapter” of her life with loved ones in Phoenix.
In a moving open letter, retired Justice O’Connor expressed her “gratitude and deep appreciation for the countless blessings” she has received and many people who’ve made her life possible. She also left a message to current and future generations about the importance of understanding the Constitution and our unique system of government, of teaching children civics and of “putting country and the common good above party and self-interest.” It’s both a timeless and very timely message. I urge you to read it, and again, to say a prayer for her and her family.
Follow the money
There’s an old saying: If you want to know what’s really going on, “follow the money.” Over the past year or so, tech giants such as Google, Facebook and Twitter have denied promoting leftist voices while suppressing conservatives (which brings to mind another old saying: “Who are you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?”) But with the election near and federal election laws making it possible to see who is giving how much to whom in campaign donations, let’s follow the money flowing from the employees of Google, Facebook and Twitter and see where it’s going…
Is anyone really surprised at the drastic contrast between donations to Democrats and Republicans? Click the link for the numbers (preview: at Twitter, the ratio of employee donations to Democrats and Republicans is 100%-to-zero percent.)
