Joe, I need to see you

Joe, I need to see you … Stare vacantly while picking your teeth…

Of all the governments in the world, the one comprising by far the greatest existential threat to America is … The United States government.

According to Kerry M. Eberly, a nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. ~ M. T. Cicero

Also, and this is just part of a longer piece, I declare to you, from the bottom of my heart, that no Socialist system can be established without a political police force … No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance. ~ Winston S. Churchill

Eerily familiar, no? Yours truly was on a quote hunt because these guys are just so much smarter and especially wiser than me and other souls of the kingdom. I think the union is doomed.

Consider by Silvio Canto, Jr., down in Mexico, the migrant crisis has President Lopez-Obrador calling for a meeting with President Biden.  This is the story:

Joe, I need to see you … So don’t ask for whom the bell tolls when tyrants shrill in vain redoubt…

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has requested a bilateral meeting with his US counterpart to discuss the migration crisis that has “overwhelmed” his country, his foreign minister said Friday.

The meeting would occur in Washington when Lopez Obrador attends a summit of Latin American leaders, to be convened by US President Joe Biden on November 3.

Lopez Obrador wants to discuss “legal paths” to address the humanitarian situation facing hundreds of thousands of people who have recently attempted to make their way to the United States and to study the ways in which they can request asylum, as well as work visas for the agricultural sector.

Mexico is being “overwhelmed” by the arrival of migrants to its territory, Mexican Foreign Minister Alicia Barcena said at a press conference during the UN General Assembly in New York.

Around 9,000 arrive at the country’s southern border every day, around 3,000 of whom have traversed the Darien Gap, a dense jungle on the border between Colombia and Panama.

Another 8,000 arrive at the northern border with the United States every day.

“Yesterday 11,000 arrived,” Barcena said. “This exceeds any capacity, no matter how much Mexico wants to do a good job.”

Joe, I need to see you … Hey Jackass! true, don’t blame me!

Exceeds any capacity?  Where did we hear that before?

Maybe it’s a coincidence, but this call for a meeting comes after the Biden administration proposed TPS, or temporary status, to Venezuelans waiting here for their asylum claims to be validated.

Mexico probably knows that more are coming on the expectation that the U.S. will grant another round of TPS cards in the future.  In other words, Mexico knows that the U.S. is not deterring migrants and they can’t keep any more of them in Mexico.

“Gafferguy” – What a mess.
