Kamala Harris informed Spanish-language media outlet EFE on Thursday in so many words that all her tough talk telling migrants “do not come” was just to placate the American public.
Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday eased back on the harsh message she sent to potential migrants during her trip earlier this week to Guatemala and Mexico, saying that she is “committed” to guaranteeing that the United States will be a “safe haven” for people seeking asylum.
“Let me be very clear, I am committed to making sure we provide a safe haven for those seeking asylum, period,” Harris said in an exclusive telephone interview with EFE after returning from her first international trip as vice president.
[…] In her telephone conversation with EFE, Harris also defended the Joe Biden administration, saying that the government wants to “expand legal pathways for immigration” to the US, and thus the Democratic administration is pressuring Congress to approve immigration reform measures.
“We are also rebuilding our immigration system, to the extent that it deteriorated under the (Republican Donald Trump) administration, but also we must address the root causes of migration, and that is why I traveled to Guatemala and then after that to Mexico,” Harris said.
The vice president did not get into the contradictions between this message about a welcoming US and her other remarks that undocumented migrants should not come to this country, and she noted that “part of my charge (as vice president) has been to address the root causes (of illegal migration), … hunger in the region, … the impact of the hurricanes … the COVID-19 impact” rather than overseeing activities at the US-Mexico border.
People are flying in from all over the world to cross our border.
Reuters reported last month how Gypsies from Romania are flying in from Paris then meeting up with smugglers in Mexico City to waltz right in:
MORE OCCUPIED Republic of Texas TAKING IT UP THE ASS FROM USA:
Building a damn wall to try to “keep out” the Invasion from Mexico while luring them in with “free’ everything once they are here is the height of either hypocrisy or stupidity.
Driving on the streets of San Antonio nowadays is like a demolition derby.
Half of the gentuza of Mexico are here, half of them are drunk driving, the other half don’t know how to drive.
And not a DAMN thing is being done by the San Antonio “police” to curb this Micky Mouse Shit and danger to Native Texicans.
The walls which currently exist between Mexico and North of the Border America has not stopped the invasion nor the drug trafficking.
There are tunnels found under the walls all the time.
They cut through the walls.
I recall reading where the Mexican drug cartels used a crane.
They would find lonely stretch of wall, position a crane on the South side of the wall, drive a pickup loaded with drugs to the wall, with the driver and shot gun rider in the seat, lift the pickup, sit it down on the North side of the wall, the shot gun rider would undo the straps, and away went a pickup loaded with drugs North of the Border.
After WW 2 the French spent enormous time and money building the Maginot Line which they said would stop a German Invasion.
The Germans just went around it, France fell in a matter of days.
If one reads of the construction of the Great Wall of China, Millions of Chinese were worked to death in harsh slave like conditions building the wall which was supposed to protect the Chinese Dynasties.
In the end, the barbarians bribed the guards and rode right through.
Want to stop the Invasion from Mexico of the Occupied Republic of Texas?
Un-occupy the Occupied Republic of Texas by the USA.
Once the communistic USA Occupiers are run out of Texas, Texicans know how to put a stop to this Micky Mouse Shit, while running out of Texas the child raping, thieving, murdering, rude dangerous to natives Texican sons of bitches which the USA and their Bitch, ‘THE STATE OF TEXAS” has already forced on Occupied Texicans.
The Ole Texican Dog!
Texas governor Greg Abbott announced Thursday that the state will begin erecting its own border barriers because the Biden administration is failing “to do its job” on the border and protect Americans from lawlessness.
In an interview with Breitbart News, Abbott said Texas “will immediately begin building border barriers in areas where migrants can easily cross the Rio Grande border with Mexico.”
“The influx across the border is out of control, and the Biden administration has shown that [it] is not going to step up and do its job,” Abbott said, adding “And amidst reports of even more people coming in across the border, we know we have to step up and do more.”
Abbott was attending a a border summit in Del Rio, Texas where he noted that the city is “is suffering from some of the largest increases” of undocumented migrants.
“They’re seeing a lot of very bad dangerous people come across the border. People that they are afraid of encountering, people who are causing damage to their fences, their livestock, their crops, their neighborhoods, and their homes,” Abbott urged.
“Bad things are happening around here, and so they need help from the state to help them address this exploding crisis,” the governor further explained.
“What people have seen in videos across the country seems to be the Biden Administration welcoming these people to the United States,” Abbott coninued, adding “We won’t be sending that message.”
“If you come to Texas, you’re subject to being arrested. You’re not going to have a pathway to roam the country. You’re going to have a pathway directly into a jail cell,” the governor warned.
MORE yankee BULL SHIT FROM OLE ALL HAT AND NO CATTLE A-BUTT:
Universities are supposed to educate people, not be used for yankee Communistic propaganda purposes while passing out long dildos to young impressionable girls who’s parents are paying through the ass to send them there.
It would appear to me that UT has way too much public teat funds if they can use them to fund such evil Anti-God and Anti-American red Russian Communistic shit!
And where the hell is Texas’s gold tied to Texas’s University system, which last I heard was stored in yankeeland.
Several search engine searches has failed to tell me where that gold is now.
As it was stored in yankeeland my guess is it was sold to China to fund the USA’s Anti-American activities.
How about “Texas’s” Universities stop pissing off Texican’s funds trying to implement red Russian Anti-Texican and Anti-American Communism!
Then they might have enough $$$ to damn well educate Texican children who’s parents are paying out the ass to send them to communistic shit holes without continually trying to suck more out of the Public Teat!

Texas’ public university officials and higher education leaders said they are breathing a sigh of relief after state lawmakers added a last-minute influx of $380 million in funding for four-year universities and health institutions at the end of this year’s legislative session, a welcome addition for many schools that have seen enrollments rise as they deal with the financial strain caused by the COVID-19 shutdown.
But community colleges aren’t feeling as lucky, as they lost tens of millions of dollars worth of state funding due largely due to enrollment declines during the pandemic. Leaders across two- and four-year schools also say they’re hoping to squeeze out some additional support for higher education in the expected special session later this year.
The additional money for university enrollment growth was not originally included in the budget conference committee report negotiated by the Texas House and Senate, to the frustration of many university officials. But it was added by the time the budget was sent to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk. How much each university will receive from the late session boost depends on enrollment changes.
“That [funding for enrollment] wasn’t there a week ago,” said state Rep. Chris Turner, D-Grand Prairie, on the House floor before the budget was approved. “I want to thank [Republican House Appropriations Committee] Chairman [Greg] Bonnen for listening on that and for all who led to make that happen. That is a significant win for higher ed and sorely needed.”
Overall, university leaders and postsecondary advocates said higher education fared better than anticipated at the start of the session, as a global pandemic and statewide winter freeze captured lawmakers’ attention and threw the state’s budget into question. Legislators put $8.6 billion into the formulas that make up the majority of funding for higher education institutions — including four-year universities, health-related institutions and community colleges— which is $486 million more than the current biennium budget.
But funding per semester credit hour, which the Legislature uses to determine how much money a public university receives based on the type of class and enrollment, has continued to decline since 2008. Back then, universities received $59.02 per weighted credit hour. Lawmakers approved a $55.65 weighted credit hour for the next biennium.
Still, Texas Higher Education Commissioner Harrison Keller said there’s more work to be done to ensure adequate continued funding remains so the state can meet its long-term goals to educate more students and prepare them for the Texas workforce. Texas leaders have set an ambitious goal that at least 60% of Texans ages 24-35 have a certificate or degree by 2030.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has accused Facebook of acting as a “state agency” during the Covid-19 pandemic for the government and health officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci, saying this behavior should carry legal consequences.
Cruz used Facebook’s recent reversal on a rule to flag posts suggesting Covid-19 was man-made as proof that the company is on “behalf of the government” in a Sunday interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo.
“These latest breakthroughs have real consequences because it now is clear that Facebook was operating at the direction of and in the direct benefit of the federal government and operating as the government’s censor, utilizing their monopoly position to censor on behalf of the government,” the senator said.
The fact that Facebook appears to be taking its policing cues from the government and officials like Fauci, Cruz said, means they may not be able to hide behind their usual “private company” defense as they are acting as a “state agency.”
“When they say, ‘Should we censor this? And Fauci says, ‘Yes.’ And they censor it for the federal government. And then magically when the government changes its mind and says, ‘Oh, all those facts that were there a year ago, now you’re allowed to talk about it.’ They stop censoring it with the flip of a switch,” Cruz said, adding that the platform should be open to “very serious legal liability.”
Facebook announced in February that it was policing posts that suggested Covid-19 had man-made origins, a previously ‘debunked’ conspiracy theory that is now a debated topic as investigations into the virus’ origins continue. The company announced this month they were reversing the policy after “consultation with public health experts.”
Cruz alleges it was only government officials taking a lighter stance on theories that the virus was created in a Wuhan lab accident that prompted the social media giant to change their policy.
The Texas senator claims Facebook’s obvious reversal could and possibly should open them up to legal action from previously-censored users.
“If you went out and posted the facts that led a year ago to the very strong likelihood that the COVID virus escaped from a Chinese government lab in Wuhan, China, if you posted that a year ago and they took it down, I think there’s a very good argument you have a cause of action against Facebook,” he said.
Cruz also turned his attention towards Fauci and the recent email dump as a result of multiple Freedom of Information Act requests, accusing the medical official of “misleading” the American people, along with Facebook.
History has always made concentration camps to be synonymous with the atrocities of Nazi Germany. But, America has its own dirty secrets about the use of concentration camps. These camps were located in Natchez, Mississippi and were used to corral freed slaves during and after the American Civil War. As slaves were being emancipated from the plantations, their route to freedom usually took them in the vicinity of the Union army forces. Unhappy with the slaves being freed, the army began recapturing the slaves and forced the men back into hard labor camps. The most notorious of the several concentration camps that were established was located in Natchez, MS.
As the slaves made their way to freedom, the town of Natchez went from a population of 10,000 to 120,000 people almost overnight. In order to deal with the population influx of recently freed slaves, a concentration camp was established to essentially eradicate the slaves. The men were recaptured by the Union troops and forced back into hard labor. The women and children were locked behind the concrete walls of the camp and left to die from starvation. Many also died from the smallpox disease. In total, over 20,000 freed slaves were killed in one year, inside of this American concentration camp.
A researcher studying the existence of the concentration camps said, “The union army did not allow them to remove the bodies from the camp. They just gave ’em shovels and said bury ’em where they drop.” The camp was called the Devil’s Punchbowl because of the way the area is shaped. The camp was located at the bottom of a cavernous pit with trees located on the bluffs above.
Today the bluffs are known for the wild peach grooves but the locals will not eat any of the fruit because some are aware of what has fertilized the trees. One researcher has noted that skeletal remains still wash-up when the area becomes flooded by the Mississippi River. Even when America tries to bury its racist ways, we must force America to acknowledge what has occurred and not shy away from the truth. Let’s never forget all the freed slaves that died in American concentration camps at the Devil’s Punchbowl.

A LITTLE BOY FROZE TO DEATH RIGHT OUTSIDE OF San Antonio BECAUSE OF THEASE TWO A$$ HOLE’S red RUSSIAN COMMiE BS!Dozens of studies show that lockdowns were an ineffective pandemic response. The list just got longer.
In May, Youyang Gu, an MIT-trained engineer and data scientist, released data showing that government restrictions were not correlated with lower COVID mortality in America. Government restrictions were correlated with higher unemployment, however.
“In the US, there is no correlation between Covid deaths & changes in unemployment rates. However, blue states are much more likely to have higher increases in unemployment,” wrote Gu, the creator of covid19-projections.com, a pandemic modeling site. “More restrictions in a state is NOT correlated with fewer COVID-19 deaths. However, more restrictions IS correlated with higher unemployment.”
Recognizing the Failure of Lockdowns
The COVID-19 pandemic is finally winding down and more and more people are beginning to acknowledge some hard truths about the failures of the collective response to the virus.
George Orwell famously observed that during deceitful times telling the truth is a revolutionary act, so the fact that so many people are finally acknowledging hard truths appears to be a sign we are emerging from deceitful times.
For some, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci, these truths are bitter medicine. As Hannah Cox recently observed, Fauci has been on the wrong side of numerous pandemic confrontations with Sen. Rand Paul—and has found himself on the losing end each time.
The harms of lockdowns, however, are undeniable: economic collapse, millions of jobs and businesses lost, rampant spending, surging debt and poverty, an explosion of drug overdoses, poor mental health, and a collapse of health screenings (including cancer) that will result in hundreds of thousands of excess deaths in the coming years—if not millions.
It will not be easy to acknowledge this failure. As The New York Times noted in 2017, humans struggle mightily to admit we were wrong.
A number of events are coming together which are set to push gold prices higher. Besides a combination of continuing inflationary policies and massive future budget deficits undermining the dollar, by closing down derivative market activities new Basel 3 regulations appear set to deflect some demand into physical metals. Furthermore, liquidity in gold markets will contract, potentially making prices more volatile
This article looks at how these developments will affect the undeclared but very real financial and propaganda war being waged by America against China.
China is moving on, enlarging its own middle class which will benefit from a stronger yuan, much as the German and Japanese economies did between 1970—2000. Having dominated economic developments until now, the export trade is becoming less important. With this dependency lessening, the argument in favour of a coup de grace against the dollar by China revealing its true gold position is increasing.
In this article, China’s undeclared gold reserves are quantified, and we can be confident that China has at least 20,000 tonnes “off balance sheet”. For China to openly declare her gold position always was her final, almost nuclear option in the financial war waged against her by America. Unwittingly, by diverting demand from paper gold to physical bullion, Basel 3 may have brought forward that day by default.
The imminent introduction of Basel 3’s net stable funding ratio is going to have a major impact on the global banking system, and it is a reasonable assumption that government agencies concerned with geopolitical implications will be considering it from that point of view. And nowhere is this more important than for gold, and by implication the dollar’s unrivalled hegemony.
With China having restricted credit expansion for about a year, its economy is in a different position from that of the major Western economies. The US, the EU, Japan and the UK have continued to give credit free rein with zero and negative interest rates. With China at a different stage of its credit cycle, strains are bound to surface across the foreign exchanges. China’s yuan is strong, having risen by 10% against the US dollar over the last year, and it is likely to continue to rise.
It is hardly surprising that the Chinese are warning the West about financial market bubbles. While there may be an element of crowing by China’s monetary authorities about how wrongfooted their Western counterparties have become while they themselves acted against price inflation early, they are correct. I devoted last week’s article to the consequences of ignoring the threat of rising prices, primarily the outcome of ultra-loose monetary policies.
It is worth noting that statements by the Chinese about the US and vice-versa are in the context of an on-going financial conflict. So far, China has survived all US attempts to destabilise it, having successfully deployed the Sun Tzu tactic of bending with the wind. But Sun Tzu also warned that there is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare. At some point and when the time is right, China must be prepared to take the initiative and inflict a final financial defeat on its aggressors. Perhaps the Basel 3 move will trigger the event for her by driving the dollar price of gold higher, destabilising the dollar.
Furthermore, China has always understood that relying on export surpluses to America to drive her economy was a transitory phase because of the likely kickback, which is what happened under President Trump.
