Biden is loving all this attention being given to Chauvin, policing, and racism — it gets people talking about something besides those colossal failures at Biden’s Broken Border.

The Governor of Arizona is not interested in letting Joe change the channel, because for Gov. Ducey, the border problem is getting worse, not better. And that is hurting people in his home state.

He struggled with addressing the phrase ‘crisis’. Now let’s see how well he handles ‘national emergency’.

It’s not just the influx of people the Governor is worried about. It’s the influx of crime.

Ducey has declared a state of emergency at the border, but he wants Biden to call a Federal State of emergency, unlocking the resources that can be brought to bear under SOE provisions.

“President Biden, if you want to stop the disaster that’s unfolding here and will only get worse, President Biden, you should declare a national emergency and deploy the vast powers of your administration to stop what’s happening here,” said Ducey, a frequent critic of the commander in chief.

…Ducey took aim at the Biden administration’s decision to halt construction of the border wall, but called on the president to work with the state to address the humanitarian crisis.

“I am going to support the federal government and the administration,” he continued. “We want to partner with them. So I am saying we are here in good faith to partner with you. This is federal land. This is a federal responsibility,” —NYPost

It wasn’t political posturing, either. Just one day earlier, he called a state of emergency, sending the National Guard to bolster the CBP efforts to keep people from flowing, unimpeded, across the border.

From a press release, the previous day:

The situation in our border communities is just as bad—if not worse—than the coverage we’ve been seeing,” the Governor stated. “It’s become evidently clear that Arizona needs the National Guard, and the White House is aware of that. Yet, to this day, there has been no action from this administration, and it doesn’t look like they are going to act any time soon. If this administration isn’t going to do anything, then we will.”

Under the leadership of the newly appointed Adjutant General and Director of the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs Brigadier General Kerry L. Muehlenbeck, up to 250 Guardsmen will go to border communities and will be available to support other law enforcement agencies, like state troopers. The Arizona National Guard will:

Assist with medical operations in detention centers;

Install and maintaining border cameras;

Monitor and collect data from public safety cameras; and

Analyze satellite imagery for current trends in smuggling corridors.

“The dedicated members of the Arizona National Guard stand ready to support our local law enforcement partners as they address border security, just like we have done for many years when called upon,” said Brigadier General Kerry L. Muehlenbeck. “Our guard members will tackle a wide range of tasks including medical operations, camera maintenance and monitoring, data analysis, and logistics and administrative support to local sheriffs. I am proud of the men and women of the Arizona National Guard for their commitment to serving and protecting our state, all while they balance federal requirements and full-time civilian commitments. I am grateful for all they do to keep Arizonans safe and for the many employers who continue to support them.”

U.S. Customs & Border Protection in March had more than 170,000 apprehensions at the Southwest border. Nearly 19,000 of those apprehensions were unaccompanied children — more than four times the number of kids apprehended in March 2020.

“The crisis at the border is serious and cannot be taken lightly,” said Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot. “The Arizona National Guard will provide much-needed support to our officers and safety officials, and will help ensure Yuma and other border communities are further protected from dangerous and illegal activity. By deploying National Guard assets, the Governor will allow me to deploy more first responders to mission critical tasks where we will work side by side with our federal partners to target, apprehend and prosecute transnational criminal organizations. My thanks to the Governor for taking action to protect Arizonans, law enforcement and legal immigration.” –AZGovernor

If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
