Should we celebrate January 8, 2023 as a national holiday because Biden finally visited the southern border for the first time in his life?
In December when Biden did a photo op at a chip manufacturing facility in Phoenix, Arizona, and was asked why he wasn’t going to visit the border, especially since it is only a few hours away, his response was that “there are more important things going on.” Like what, Joe? Plan your vacation to St. Croix?
It has been 2 years since Biden became president, and 2 years since the illegal immigrants have been invading our border. March, 2021, Kamala Harris was given the task as border Czar to “fix” the problem, but being the inept person that she is, she wanted to get to the root causes of the immigration problems.
She traveled to Honduras for the inauguration of President-elect Xiomara Castro, and to share her cockamamie ideas on how to solve the border problem. He was not impressed and must have share his thoughts with the leaders of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico who all decided that the Summit of the Americas, held in June, 2022, was not worth attending. The result was Cackling Harris speaking to empty chairs.
Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo., said “Because the Biden administration has refused to enforce immigration laws and finish the border wall, illegal fentanyl continues to stream across a wide-open southern border, and human traffickers and smugglers continue to profit off of the president’s inaction.”
It is obvious that one of our biggest problems, the southern border, is the result of the Biden Administration who is still blaming the GOP, saying that the politics of divisiveness have prevented solutions from resolving the situation. Another lie, Joe! Tsk, tsk.
Biden is the reason why the American taxpayers are spending $20+billion on supporting millions of illegal immigrants crossing into our country. He should take responsibility for this horrendous debacle.
Back to January 8th, Biden visited El Paso, but not before encampments were dismantled and hundreds of people sent to Mexico, so Biden would not see reality. “El Paso being cleaned up as if nothing unusual ever happened there. Just in time for Biden’s ‘visit to the border,’” tweeted the Border Patrol Union. “We suggest landing in Des Moines, Iowa and telling him it’s El Paso. He’ll never know the difference.”
Biden was escorted to the port of entry in El Paso but never visited the areas most impacted by illegal migrant crossings. Brandon Judd, the President of the National Border Council, explained that it wasn’t the ports of entry where the illegal crossings were occurring; instead, they were most prevalent “between the ports of entry.”
He added that patrolling those areas between the ports of entry was border patrol, adding that Biden didn’t have “any scheduled visits with them.”
Judd then emphasized that Biden wouldn’t be able to “develop true policies and programs and operations” because of his unwillingness to “see exactly what is going on.”
After his trip, Biden announced new measures to deport those without “a legal right to stay.” But he’s just said that anyone who claims asylum has a right to stay. In other words, he’s telling potential border crossers that claiming asylum is their golden ticket.
So, there we have it. Another photo op for the Biden’s scrapbook which will probably be stored by the Corvette!
Couldn’t have stated it better Nancy “So, there we have it. Another photo op for the Biden’s scrapbook which will probably be stored by the Corvette!” Lol Biden calling out his corvette makes you wonder what and who is this human. The very sad thing about it, is TRUE.
We still have to live with this crap. Threats, destruction, hunger, deaths, might be stating it too nice. War with another sick human being, calling the shots on mankind, and the human existence of our planet we all live on. Why hasn’t someone taken this thing out?
I would much rather listen to great musician’s or stream and watch Paul Hollywood making bread.
You’re a great writer Nancy. Another of my favorites writers journalists is Vitally N. Katsenelson.

True leadership is a rarity, today… at ANY level! Whether it’s a Boy Scout troop, corporation, non-profit, Religious persuasion or a sovereign nation.
The U.S. has fallen off the world stage of leadership prominence quite some time, ago. The, proverbial, sterling ‘north-star’ of the geo-political world has become, increasingly tarnished. My, global, contacts and acquaintances keep me informed of the perception the U.S. possesses… not a favorable brilliance!
BIden, et al, falls into the vast sea of ineffective leadership. At best, he’s a poor nutshell manipulator, but an accomplished megalomaniac.
A photo op!? Yeah, maybe, however, I’ve seen better photo coordinating of Kim Jong-un & troupe!
