DEGROFF: When Is Enough … Enough?

Given the current state of affairs under the Biden Misadministration, a lot of people are wondering just how close we are to a national breaking point. And truthfully, that reality is starting to be understood even by those who normally don’t pay attention to politics.

To the average American leftist/Dem/Socialist/Communist (pick one…they’re interchangeable…), the biggest issues facing the country are racism, climate change, and access to abortion. To us proudly deplorable normals, the big concerns are unchecked illegal immigration, the economy, and ongoing, pervasive government overreach. Shockingly, there are some Dems who are starting to see just how mentally unstable and deranged their side has become and are voicing their concerns. Pray that more from the left become former leftists, and help with the heavy lifting required to turn this country around.

There is so much to discuss in regard to the outright hatred and insane nonsense that has been thrown at us, it’s hard to pick a place to start. Therefore, this will be presented in more than one installment. For now, let’s focus on immigration and the overall reality of what is going on because of a completely broken system, and take a different look at the economy than what is normally discussed.

The number of illegals who have crossed our open southern border is the equivalent of an invasion. That’s not meant to be a hyperbolic statement. Estimates of the total number over 3 decades have been as high as 20,000,000. For 2023, the figure is 2,500,000; with an estimated average of 2,000,000 per year since 2021.

There are “known” numbers. The number of illegals who aren’t apprehended and become known as “got-aways” is unknown. In 2019, the Dept. Of Homeland Security estimated 143,500 “got-aways” for that year alone.

Another category, that of “border encounters”, includes those who turn themselves in, and those who are caught and don’t try to run. From Oct. 2019 to Jan. 2024, there were 9,800,000 “encounters” according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

These are the numbers of an invading force. Consider this: in June 1941, Nazi Germany invaded Soviet Russia with a force of 3,500,000 troops, plus 700,000 troops from German allied nation of Romania, Hungary, Finland, Italy, and Slovakia. By the war’s end in 1945, the Russians could document the deaths of 20,000,000, both military and civilian.

So what, you say? That’s old WWII history. No one pays attention to this stuff any more. That’s unfortunate because the point is that a small, determined force can conquer an unprepared larger enemy. Granted, the Germans had the Wehrmacht, which included the army, the Luftwaffe, and the Panzer divisions. Nonetheless, they took on the world’s largest county and almost won.

Another thing to consider about being invaded is who is doing the invading. We’re gaslighted by the Left into thinking it’s just women, children and families seeking a better life. Look at the pictures though: it’s mostly military age men and not all of Central/South American, Spanish persuasion. Mid Eastern men on the Terrorist Watch List have been caught, as have Chinese nationals.

It’s a common practice to infiltrate a country with spies before a military operation. In fact, it’s a very old practice. Joshua 2L:1 says: “And Joshua…sent out of Shittim two men to spy secretly, saying Go view the land…”

If you think everyone who crosses our open border is a poor wretched asylum seeker, I can make you a great deal on a bridge. WE ARE BING INVADED!

Focusing on the economy is something we all do, whether or not we’re aware of it at the time. The “economy” makes its presence known to you every time you fill up the car or go to the grocery store. No need to go into numbers. We all know what’s going on. But why?

Here’s the short answer. Outside of your household budget, the term “economics” seems like nothing more than boring academic theory. Here are some examples.

Supply-side economic theory says that increases in goods and services is the best for growth. In theory, this creates supply, expands businesses, and incentivizes the work ethic. For the theory to function, government must decrease regulations, offer tax cuts, and lower interest rates.

An opposing theory is Keynesian economics. In this system, prices are rigged, and any change in consumption, investment, or government spending will cause overall output to change. This is the government playing an active role in the economy instead of letting the free market work. While it’s not as bad as Soviet-era central planning, where unelected bureaucrats decide what, how much, and how often anything and everything will get produced, and they set the prices, this system is still an attempt at a planned economy.

We’re seeing our government try to do this with attempting to mandate electric vehicles, which light bulbs you can use, ban gas stoves, etc., etc. All of these attempts are about control. It’s the Green New Steal, and has nothing to do with the environment. When you manipulate and control the day-to-day economic life of a population, you control their very existence. Karl Marx knew this.

How far do they have to come into our homes before say “enough is enough”?

In conclusion (of Part 1)
Here’s a great quote attributed the Russian dissident writer and Nobel Laureate Alexander Solzhenitsyn: “We know they are lying. They know they are lying. They know that we know they are lying. We know that they know we know they are lying. And still they continue to lie.”
