Did you know that you and I are in the Land of Promise? No, we are not in Israel. We are in the land that those in the fanatical open borders crowd have promised to all the world’s poor. Yep! Those people who make our economy work and do all that work that Americans won’t do are welcomed here. Gosh! They are so welcome we will learn their language, adopt their culture, give them a free education and welfare, and put them in charge of the place. And if anyone objects? Well, don’t you know what the people who entered the Promised Land did to those degenerate Canaanites?
Well, there is someone who does not like that deal. His name is Donald J. Trump.
What set off Trump? Here are a few publications about the story.
- Trump declares ‘NO MORE’ DACA deal after report of caravan with Central Americans heading to US (foxnews.com)
- Trump says DACA deal for young immigrants is off (reuters.com)
Here is the basic story.
President Trump said Sunday that he was pulling a DACA deal off the table in negotiations with Democrats and warned Mexico to step up its own efforts to control the flow of people headed north across its territory — or else he will cancel NAFTA.
The president seemed particularly outraged over a caravan of more than 1,000 people from Central America who are traversing Mexico with the aim of showing up on the U.S. border to either sneak into the country or demand asylum.
Mexican authorities have reportedly done nothing to deter the people, who are in their country without authorization. (continued here)
The Fox News story (bullet above) is especially interesting because it explains why our border agents can no longer enforce our border.
So what are we to do? Pray for wisdom, I suppose. We certainly don’t seem to have any. So here I am going to point to a passage from the Bible.
If we search the New King James Version (NKJV) for grace and truth, we will get four hits, and we will learn that Jesus was full of grace and truth. Why both? To be meaningful, love has to be based upon the truth, not make believe.
Consider what the Apostle John told a lady who was helping him to spread the Gospel.
2 John 4-6 New King James Version (NKJV)
4 I rejoiced greatly that I have found some of your children walking in truth, as we received commandment from the Father. 5 And now I plead with you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment to you, but that which we have had from the beginning: that we love one another. 6 This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.
We show our love for God by obeying His commandments in truth. If we only obey what we wish God had commanded, we don’t obey Him. Unless we respect the truth, our love is just a fantasy. It is not real.
Consider what it means to be a fanatic, someone crazily devoted to a political cause.
Definition of fanatic
a person exhibiting excessive enthusiasm and intense uncritical devotion toward some controversial matter (as in religion or politics) – a religious fanatic [=extremist]
The fanatics are convinced they are serving a righteous cause and that all means are justified …
What is the problem with fanaticism? What drives a fanatic? Oddly enough, it is love, but it is a love based upon falsehood, not truth. Are Nazis members of a superior race? Are Communists truly the vanguard of the proletariat? When they twist our Constitution into a pretzel, do Liberal Democrat politicians actually demonstrate how much they care about and help the poor, the old, the disabled, the children, ……?
Consider what routinely happens now when illegal immigrants come into our country. Thanks to the lax enforcement of our laws, catch and release, they stay. Even if our border agents catch an illegal immigrant, if that immigrant lies and asks for asylum, the border agents have to let them go. According to the devious laws set up by our politicians, our border agents must release people they know do not belong in our country. Therefore, foreigners can come to the USA, foreigners can hide in our country, and we don’t know anything about these foreigners.
Love has to be based upon the truth. The prosperity of the United States, the magnet that attracts illegal immigrants, depends upon just laws. Generations of Americans have worked hard to create a just legal system based upon the virtue of Truth. Using love as their excuse, scheming politicians now work with equal fervor to undermine our legal system. Using love as their excuse, they spin the truth. They pretend our borders have no significance. They pretend that opening our borders to one and all does not matter. When all they want is cheap labor and votes they can buy even more cheaply, they pretend to love the illegal immigrants. In truth, they only love themselves.
The people of the United States have a distinct culture, a distinct heritage. Unless we work hard to protect our language, traditions, and institutions — strive to understand and care for the legacy that has been given us — we will leave our children a travesty. We will have a pretend democracy, a fallen republic, a nation struggling with debt load it cannot repay. Instead of being the best, our churches, schools, hospitals, roads, airports — institutions of every kind — will be in shambles. Then the immigrants will stop coming.
Do you want to protect your country, your children and grandchildren. Then pay attention to the upcoming elections for the U.S. Congress. In Virginia, those Upcoming Elections include primaries on June 12th and a general election on November 6th.
We need to replace some of our leaders. To make a real difference, that means we must take part in the primary elections too.
