Do you remember the almost immediate knee-jerk talking point that every Democrat who could find a camera was screaming as soon as President Trump began working on his promise to build a wall on our southern border to stop illegal immigration in its tracks?
“Manufactured crisis” was the Democrat mantra heard across the country and its airwaves immediately after it became apparent that the new president was determined to keep his promise. Their mantra was spontaneous, perfectly choreographed, and in concert, as Democrats from sea to shining sea excoriated President Trump for his “manufactured crisis” while they insisted that there was no crisis on the border. Instead, they demanded, it was a Trump fear tactic, the fantasy of a deranged man.
And, all the while, hundreds of thousands of undocumented, unvetted illegal aliens were flooding across our southern border, some diseased, many with violent criminal records. Others were human traffickers, drug runners, and/or dangerous gang members.
Then, a new crisis within the border crisis began to appear. A significant number of the illegals being apprehended were “other than Mexican,” or OTMs, as the Border Patrol refers to them, and not all of them were from Central America.
Many Arabs and Africans began to appear, most of them Muslim. Prayer rugs and Qurans were being found in the desert…. on the American side of the border! Thus, these individuals had already made it safely into the country, avoiding apprehension, their whereabouts and intentions unknown, even today.
Yet, the “manufactured crisis” chorus continued non-stop from the left, who believed, as the saying goes, that if you tell a lie enough times, people will believe it, at which point it becomes reality.
Now, blowing the Democrat “manufactured crisis” narrative to Smithereens, wherever that is, a recent (May, 2019) report from Homeland Security Today describes an interview with an imprisoned ISIS fighter and leader who has admitted that he was part of an ISIS plan to enter the United States from Mexico to commit terrorist attacks.
“While finishing up a research interview with a Canadian imprisoned ISIS cadre detained in Rojava, Syria, by SDF forces, we learned that, indeed, there was at least one ISIS plot for their cadres to travel from Syria to penetrate the U.S. southern border by infiltrating migration routes,” reports Homeland Security Today. “Whatever one thinks of President Donald Trump’s heightened rhetoric about the U.S.- Mexico border and his many claims that it is vulnerable to terrorists, ISIS apparently also thought so, as knowledge of this ISIS plot came from the mouth of a now-repentant ISIS cadre.”
Former ISIS fighter Abu Henricki explained in detail the ISIS plan to attack America’s financial infrastructure using ISIS operatives smuggled into the US via Mexico.
When asked about the ISIS plot, Henricki explained, “They were going to move me to the Mexican side [of the U.S. southern border] via Puerto Rico. This was mastermind[ed] by a guy in America. Where he is, I do not know. That information, the plan came from someone from the New Jersey state from America. I was going to take a boat [from Puerto Rico] into Mexico. He was going to smuggle me in.”
So, it is clear that the Democrats’ “manufactured crisis” narrative is 180 degrees from accurate, meaning that they are either stupid or shameless liars, or both. It is this writer’s opinion that the Democrats in Washington are just barely smart enough to believe that they can blow smoke up the asses of tens of millions of American morons (yes, I’m afraid there are that many) and convince them to not only believe their lies but to also blast those lies all over their social media pages, recruiting other useful idiots.
