No Borders, No Country

Manuella is in the Kitchen

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, July 9, 2018. Our lovely friend, Mantis Manuella, is in the kitchen preparing a French Toast Casserole for our enjoyment. Manuella is perplexed by the left's desire to abolish ICE and open up our borders. Their rhetoric is insane and their behavior is despicable. Manuella has asked for the pleasure of your company this morning. I'll be there, as well, serving Irish coffees to keep the mood elevated. This issue deserves some exploration, so hurry over and take a seat at the table. We hope to see you soon.

Come One, Come All

Thanks so much for coming to the table this morning. The issue of open borders is heating up, and the fact that it is even considered an issue is disturbing. The left has decided that anyone who wants to enter our country should just come right in, no questions asked. Their latest battle cry calls for the elimination of ICE. Most of the protestors probably haven't a clue what ICE does, but "protesting" is now a paid position, and work is work. ICE is the agency responsible for enforcing our immigration laws. Believe it or not, we actually do have immigration laws on the books, but past presidents decided not to enforce them properly, so our borders have become a free for all. President Trump is different from those that came before him. He cares about our nation, and he cares about our future, He is trying to settle immigration problems, something past administrations were loathe to do. After all, winning is the real issue for the left and nobody wants to tackle sticky issues that may cost votes. Well nobody did until a real person came into the Oval Office. Not being a politician gives President Trump the freedom to tackle tough problems and actually solve them. How different and unique is that endeavor? If the left had even a small semblance of common sense they would admit that unfettered entry into the country is dangerous. Lax enforcement of border security coupled with the elimination of ICE paves the way for drug smugglers, child traffickers, child molestors, gang members and terrorists to take over our cities and towns and ruin our nation. Of course the left has no vision, and those they whip into frenzy have no brains, so the perfect storm is created. That's what we have now, the perfect storm.

Life Without ICE

The left has embraced a new cause to stir up the rhetoric prior to the mid-term elections. Apparently, they haven't a clue about the important role ICE serves. If ICE ceased to exist, our communities would be inundated with criminal aliens. The threat of deportation would be eliminated. MS-13 gang members would be celebrating in the streets. Those on the left would be hiding behind their gated properties, rubbing their hands in delight at the chaos the rest of the nation would be facing.

The sick part about all of this is the fact that the lefties haven't an iota of concern for citizens in this country who need help. The city of San Francisco is now a cesspool. Nancy Pelosi probably has to step over the bodies sleeping in the street to travel to her vineyards. The homeless are not her concern. They don't vote. She needs illegal aliens to enter our nation. Their presence will ensure that the Dems are the only party in power. Say good-bye to America.

Billions Wasted

Illegal immigration is expensive. A report released by the Federation for American Immigration Reform states that the cost of illegal immigration is about $113 billion. This figure represents the total cost incurred at the federal, state and local levels. Federal expenses include money for education, medical treatment, public assistance and law enforcement. Those in favor of illegal immigration, open borders and the end of ICE dispute these figures, but the burden of illegal immigration is crippling. Those that choose to enter our nation illegally use a mountain of social services, but contribute very little if anything in taxes. We simply cannot allow this situation to escalate any further. Our safety is on the line.

We have laws on the books governing immigration. It's time to obey them. It's time to enforce them. It's time to do the right thing. The clock is ticking.


Manuella's Song

When I speak they call me Manuella

And the politicos call me names.

They close their eyes

They hold their ears

Why are they so afraid?

      Good Morning maven,

      These days there is a great deal Dems don't understand. The one thing they crave is longevity in office. How they get there is a free for all. I look forward to the day when their constituents wake up and realize that they are pawns. If the Dems gave a damn about immigration, they would have accepted Trump's generous proposal. They prefer the fight, false as it is. As far as Congress is concerned, I think of that body as nothing more than a toothless tiger. I'll see you at the Inn. Your last words should be engraved on a plaque and hung over the door of the Inn. Enjoy the week-end.

      What part of illegal alien do the Democrats not understand..? If we are not a nation of laws then what do we need Congress for..? They make the laws and then deny them ?...This fake altruism isn't fooling anyone with half a brain...The process is there for a very good reason...It's called personal responsibility...That is exactly the people we want to become American citizens...Folks that take the time to go through all the bureaucratic necessities to become a citizen will have respect for our laws and an understanding what it means to be an American...What must be going through the minds of all these folks when they see millions of illegal aliens being granted immunity from our emigration laws...Outrage and disappointment, that's what...

      See you at the Inn, where friendships never end,

      And patriotic voices proclaim,

      God, Duty, and Honor, words that make us stronger,

      A sovereign nation will remain...

      Dear brad,

      It is unbelievable that this country can't solve this immigration issue. We have to secure our borders, (wall), give a path to citizenship for those living here a long time, and stop the flow of illegals once and for all. It can be done, but those needing an issue to scream about ignore Trump's offers and carry on like the fools they are. This immigration nightmare needs a resolution, and it has to be now. Never is simply not an option. We actually do have strong laws on the books. lIt it takes is a willingness to enforce them. I like bear claws too!

      Your last two comments are right on target.

      BTW, we can have congress change the law that keeps them here. They don't want the children to be separated from the parents, then deport them together. Once again the courts are misusing the 14th amendment.

      Equal Protection really doesn't apply to them, if that were true then we would have prisons and jails without bars.

      The 14th amendment didn't give equal protection to black men of women in allowing them to vote. That took another amendment the 15th and that only gave black men the right to vote.

      Women of any color couldn't vote until, yes another amendment, the 19th gave all women the right to vote.

      So if the 14th amendment which is so legally ubiquitous today needed additional amendments, instead of just a court to reinterpret and use the 14th amendment as we have the courts doing all the time this century. The 14th amendment has become the Swiss Army Knife that can be applied to any situation that the left wants to get rid of, like these children.

      Thus the 14th amendment has been re-engineered like today's GMO foods. Therefore, we should just give the 14th amendment its original purpose, and take away is GMO enhancements.

      Remember it should be the same law that keeps the rich and the poor from sleeping in the streets. It is the equality factor rather than the logic that is important here.

      How then is it equal to tax the rich higher than the non rich? Again, the equality factor not the logic. Also, raising or lowering the marginal tax rate has little effect on the taxation of the rich, because they have the cheater code. It is called the Internal Revenue Code, and only the rich really have access to it. 1986 Tax Reform Act took away most of the deductions that the non rich can use.

      Also, people keep quoting, "All Men are Created Equal"?

      Starting with the US Constitution where black men were defined as 3/5 of a man. I didn't realize that we had the new math way back then:)

      We were supposed to believe that "men" was "mankind", but we can see how it wasn't applied that way from Independence Day to today.

      In conclusion, make it Catch and Fast Return buses, trains any kind of transportation for everyone that illegally crosses the border. The process would be so fast, they wouldn't even know they left their country.

      Bear Claws have no equal:)

      Good Morning Pino,

      If the Dems gave a damn about immigration they would have accepted the president's generous deal. Instead, they turned their backs on him and the illegals in order to keep the issue alive. They have betrayed this country. See you at the Inn, Pino.

      Good Morning Lori,

      It is almost impossible to determine what is true these days. Past administrations separated children from their parents for a period of time, because the parents broke the law. There is nothing new about it. In fact, it has been reported that the Obama administration drugged kids to keep them quiet. What is not being discussed is the fact that most of these children were sent here in the company of coyotes and traffickers. What kind of parent sends their child on a dangerous journey alone? These kids are the problem. What are we going to do with them? There are over 10,000 of them. It's a sad and sick situation. See you at the Inn. Lori.

      POP: sorry I am late for breakfast but glad you have cooked enough french toast!!! Open borders mean votes; that is crazy, but that is what the left thinks. Every other country has closed borders; if that is the case, then what is the argument to allow for open borders?

      It is very late for me and I must finish my french toast and get to bed.

      Work tomorrow! But in the meantime, I will go to the Inn. Cannot wait to see you all!

      Lori, cracking down on illegals is what got Trump elected. It’s no surprise Obama and Clinton would have been found pandering to those voters when they were interested in getting votes. Nothing those two ever said was genuine but calculated to enamer their specific audience. Obama promised Hispanics immigration reform and despite having control of both houses NEVER even looked at it. Clinton “ never had sex with that woman” how can anyone take either one seriously no matter what they say.

      What's interesting is I have seen footage of Obama and Mr. Clinton both talking very strongly about the need to crack down on illegal immigration. Saying basically the same thing. But it appears the left has forgotten this. In fact, I didn't hear a word from them when it came up with them. I haven't checked in on Bush.

      On social media there have been a lot of misleading memes and posts, some proven to be fake news. I don't believe the system is perfect as far as children are concerned, but I suspect it is not what they are making it out to be.

      Dear Pamela,

      Ignorance has no borders, and sad to say, we have an abundance of it in this country. Citizenship is an honor, not a right. Once we lose the ability to decide who may enter our nation, we lose our identity and our country. France is the perfect example of what can happen when we let hordes of people in without knowing a thing about them. France will be a Muslim nation, and there is nothing thy can do about that. See you at the Inn.

      Dear brad,

      I am in agreement. Let's get rid of the IRS and simplify the code. Let's also be more inclusive in who pays. As for ICE, the idiots who want to abolish it have no idea what they do. Their protests are empty. See you at the Inn. I'm bringing knishes...

      Another interesting point is some of the European countries have stopped illegal immigrants from coming to their country, such as Italy and Austria. Italy is stopping boats from docking that pick up immigrants.

      The protesters don't have a clue as to all the responsibilities of ICE. The hate is awul, and a spirit of cooperation is absent, which includes Congress.

      I had the honor of assisting with an Naturalization ceremony as a member of DAR. It was so wonderful. It was a mix of people from all corners of the world who came here legally and worked for their citizenship. That is the way it should be, and those people were smiling and very excited about their citizenship.

      Thanks for the excellent breakfast!

      So much for the cheap labor from illegal aliens. You could also factor in the $20 billion of illegal drugs coming across the border from the Mexico supported drug cartel. You should also add the cost in lives and money to deal with the drug abuse from these illegal drugs. Half the guns deaths are suicides, and that has to have some bearing on these illegal drugs.

      There is one kryptonite to the Super Democrats, and that is ensuring that there will never be a path for illegal aliens to get citizenship.

      Do these ICE eliminators realize what the "C" stands for. Customs, and we already have problems at the legal border crossings. What would happen without Customs enforcement?

      I would support the elimination of a Federal Bureau, only it wouldn't be the ICE. It would be the IRS.

      Good Afternoon Jennifer,

      Bravo! I love your comments. They are truthful, honest, and insightful. I know someone who came here legally from Poland. She loses her mind at the thought of all of these people coming here illegally. She obeyed the laws and is a proud citizen. How is it that the Dems care more about illegals than American citizens who have problems urgently needing to be solved? I'll answer that, if you don't mind. All they care about is power. They don't give a damn about the illegals. They see them as future votes and nothing more. See you at the Inn. Round two is on me!

      Good Afternoon Wesman,

      Putting the word :sane" and Schumer in the same sentence is a riot. I agree with you. The Dems will be crying after the midterms and after 2020. Did you hear that Hillary is thinking about running again?It seems that learning from experience just isn't in the cards for Clinton or the Dems or those that keep them in office.

      I really feel bad for all the immigrants that came here legally. What a smack in the face for them. All the money, paper work and time spent to come here legally it’s just so insulting. But that’s exactly how the left works. Do whatever you want whenever you want is how they live. They want everyone to

      live like that. No responsibilities and no Consequence to their actions. The best part is they are the biggest hypocrites. They want to love one another until you start holding them accountable, then they want to beat you down. They are only making the divide bigger. God bless our president and May God protect those ICE agents. No money could be enough when you deal with irrational and entitled pain in the asses. Go get a job and stop protesting. Nobody cares what you think, nobody respects your opinion. Come here legally, Get a job, pay taxes and respect this country and nobody has any problems. This media likes to spin it that if we are happy with Trump we hate immigrants. Well anyone that has common sense knows better.

      See you at the bar. I will buy the first round for all legal immigrants because they deserve a drink!

      It's really pretty cool. The Democrats are associated with such loony tune ideas that nobody in their right mind would ever vote for them. There's not going to be a 'blue wave' in November, and there's no one who can compete with Trump in 2020 either.

      Their party may as well be dead. Who's sane in the Democratic party, Chuck Schumer, and who else?
