Was J.B. Pritzker’s toilet tax break payday legitimate? Who knows? With all that goes on in the City of Chicago we will never get a straight answer and Illinois voters will prove they don’t care. The fact that state Democrats decided to support a candidate from the 1% for allegedly doing what their party accuses wealthy Republicans of doing will not make a difference because Pritzker has promised to give Illinois more of everything, from health care to legal dope.
A caravan from Honduras isn’t news. The number of unauthorized Hondurans has exploded over the past decade. What’s new is how they are used against us. There is no length Democrats won’t go to in their quest to bring more dependence to U.S. taxpayers. Their story of bedraggled, beaten-down refugees from Central America culls up lots of sympathy from the left, but how much of what they tell us about the caravan from Honduras stands up to the facts? Not much, according to annual reports from Homeland Security.
I don’t care how much Native American blood Elizabeth Warren has sloshing around in her veins. America is supposed to be a place where we focus on who, not what you are. That’s not the way it usually works for Democrats who politically segregate minority groups for as long as they are useful vote-getters. The truth about why minorities are so important to the party is one of the things Democrats lie to stupid voters about, but it’s hardly the only falsehood they’re telling.
Does welfare count when it isn’t cash? That’s the ridiculous question asked by Democrats who oppose a public charge rule update that seeks to keep immigrants off of our public assistance rolls. We were told these people are highly-skilled job creators and entrepreneurs who will come to the U.S. and make us prosperous. Now they need Medicaid and food stamps. Is someone not telling the truth?
The RNC showed up in my mailbox with its hand out. The solicitation for political donations to the Republican Party came disguised as a survey with a vaguely threatening “FINAL NOTICE” at the top of the page. An offer to contribute $1,000 or more was at the bottom. Fortunately for the RNC there is no shame in politics, but that doesn’t mean I’ll pay for a party that won’t deliver. Here is a smattering of the questions that preceded the credit card form and my optional $15 “processing fee” for completing the survey.
