The setup for this has been occurring for quite a while. The collectivists on the right have helped the leftists gain strength, but the rate and fury of activity that has been consequential in destabilizing the United States has increased almost beyond comprehension.
The long term evolution of America to a position where such a strategy might stand a greater chance of success began long ago with the move towards urbanization. The flight from rural America was helped along with family farms bought out by Monsanto and Archer-Daniels-Midland, with low paid migrant workers on those farms, all subsidized by tax payers and rate payers who couldn’t see that there was a very high hidden cost for the low cost of produce.
The urbanized familes – at least, many of the uneducated families – have absolutely no means to earn a living in the inner city. They are repeatedly told, “we’ll take care of you.” And we do, via public transportation, food stamps, welfare, socialized medicine, public education, jobs programs, and a host of other entitlements. The cost, of course, is borne on the shoulders of the middle class.
Furthermore, the previous administration had its wolves in sheep’s clothing. Hank Paulson, father of TARP and bailout, has joined the anthropogenic global warming fanatics, and here is the catch, is now advocating a carbon tax. The key here isn’t AGW, it is that Hank Paulson advocates a tax, which is the whole point of AGW. But the current administration has accelerated implementation of the Cloward-Piven Strategy with a fury.
The Fast and Furious scandal is one manifestation of Cloward-Piven, with the administration fully expecting to pass onerous gun control and perhaps even so-called immigration reform from the influx of illegals due to the increased violence in Mexico. But when that didn’t materialize due to folks like Mike Vanderboegh, David Codrea and [later] Sharyl Attkison, the chaos at the border had to be catalyzed some other way.
Enter the rumor mill, effective enough, it would appear, to make it into newspapers in Central America. Don’t for a second doubt that this chaos is having the intended long term effect.
A flood of illegals has massively surged at our southwestern borders. The economic impact of medical care, education and incarceration for illegals forced on taxpayers is bankrupting Arizona.
Why are such swarms entering the U.S. illegally NOW, particularly children? Newspapers in Mexico and Central and South America are actually describing U.S. “open borders,” encouraging people to come with promises of food stamps or “amnesty.” It is textbook Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm and collapse the economic and social systems, in order to replace them with a “new socialist order” under federal control.
Carried by this tsunami of illegals are the invisible “travelers” our politicians don’t like to mention: diseases the U.S. had controlled or virtually eradicated: tuberculosis (TB), Chagas disease, dengue fever, hepatitis, malaria, measles, plus more. I have been working on medical projects in Central and South America since 2009, so I am aware of problems these countries face from such diseases.
A public health crisis, the likes of which I have not seen in my lifetime, is looming. Hardest hit by exposures to these difficult-to-treat diseases will be elderly, children, immunosuppressed cancer-patients, patients with chronic lung disease or congestive heart failure. Drug-resistant tuberculosis is the most serious risk, but even diseases like measles can cause severe complications and death in older or immunocompromised patients.
The costs are cascading down to the local level. “Small towns and counties in states bordering Mexico are drowning in debt due to the swarm of illegals stealing and destroying property, requiring expensive medical care and needing proper burials, all of which the federal government has largely refused to pay for.” In Brooks County, Texas, the concern is mainly public safety.
Sex offenders, murder suspects and gang members are making their way through the vast rangelands of Brooks County.
The Vickers ranch is one of the many land spreads affected by the surge in illegal immigration. What is more concerning to the ranch owners is the type of people trekking through their land.
Linda Vickers never wanders away from her house without her trusty canine companions – Blitz, Elsa, Schotten and Tinkerbell. The dogs provide a sense of security in a land of insecurity.
“The safety factor out here has changed,” Vickers said.
Vickers and her husband own and operate a nearly-1,000-acre ranch in Brooks County. Vickers reports anyone who crosses her fence line to Border Patrol.
“As of yesterday, 196 illegal immigrants with 136 apprehensions by Border Patrol,” she said. The dogs sniff out those hiding in the brush.
“There are some good, helpless people. Then, there are some really bad ones,” Vickers said.
Earlier this week, Vickers took a photo of a man on her front porch. She said the man had a Tango Blast tattoo. Tango Blast is the largest and one of the most dangerous gangs operating in the state, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
“I sometimes have to take a step back and realize the jeopardy that could happen out here,” Vickers said.
It’s not just gang members that worry Vickers. Border Patrol agents arrested a wanted murderer near Falfurrias and sex offenders in the Rio Grande Valley last weekend.
“They’re everywhere,” Vickers said.
The goal of the administration is for the local and state governments to demand federal dollars, but with federal dollars comes federal control. The ultimate aim of Obamacare wasn’t to work or function, it was to fail, thus driving America to a single-payer system. Unless one understand everything this administration does within the framework of Cloward-Piven, you cannot understand them at all.
The corollary to the urbanized collective, the redistribution of wealth, and the single payer health system, is a heavy policing presence, whether regulatory thugs inside the beltway, uniformed thugs who enforce the laws, or militarized SWAT teams who kick doors down. Or in other words, heavy policing is the corollary for the problems that modern society chooses to create for itself. The problems themselves are not a necessary product or outcome; rather, we have chosen the problems, and an overbearing, statist police presence is the intended outcome, while the problems are the catalyst.
Via Mike Vanderboegh, DianaWest asks if the Southern border can be saved? Mike points to Boehner’s treachery on immigration, while we will perhaps in the future point to the treachery of recently elected House majority leader. For the House majority leader who wants border enforcement and then amnesty, they’ll fabricate phony metrics on border arrests and call the issue closed. As for the reason both parties want immigration, both legal and illegal, the corruption runs too deep to be rooted out.
The alleged need for immigrants pertains to the desires of corporations to have low paid workers. It doesn’t enrich you or me, it enriches the rich (heads of corporations, boards of directors, and so on).
Here’s how it works. It helps the corporate bottom line by forcing the middle class to pick up the tab for medical care, which burden happens largely on the backs of nurses in emergency rooms (my daughter is a nurse in an ER), with medical insurance premiums escalating in order to pay for the service. Food stamps (so called SNAP) also factor into the calculus, as well as driver’s insurance (for uninsured motorists coverage).
It isn’t that there is no cost for low paid workers. It’s that the cost is borne by the middle class as welfare to corporations and the wealthy. The GOP is connected at the hip to such interests in terms of money, while the Democrats are connected in terms of future voters. With such powerful interests at stake, it should be obvious why the Southern border is a sieve and illegals are left in the country unmolested.
As to whether the GOP will ever be able to rely on votes from the Hispanics, that is a non-starter. “Hispanics are not historically and ideologically aligned with what the GOP is supposed to be. To point to Roman Catholicism and claim that Hispanics will vote GOP because of socially conservative viewpoints misses the bigger picture of the state of Catholicism in South and Central America. It is a synthesis, or a hybrid mixture, of Catholicism, superstition, Marxism, and in some cases evil “patron saints” for the cartel criminals.”
The elaborate setup for the problem is far too embedded into American culture and government to eradicate. There’s too many border crossings, too much border traffic, too many Mexican truckers driving in the U.S., too many Mexican workers, and too much corporate money at stake to reverse the course now. It would take far more than simply “securing the border,” whatever that might mean given that the horse left the barn years ago.
I am not suggesting that we don’t try, but I am suggesting that we prepare for failure of the routine, typical political strategies. Personal and family preparation for failure of the American system is the advisable course of action.
