Was Tucker Carson impressed during his live program?

That really is desperate "YouTube-style" click bait silliness. There are lots of silly 'reaction' YouTube clips to get bored with over on... YouTube.

Truly, Foxy News Carson has nothing useful to say!

Pathetic.

Is that Carson insert a deliberate Foxy distraction inserted so as to mute and distract from what President Biden is saying? That really is very ignorant and very disrespectful.

Is Foxy News going down with the poisonous Trump Titanic?

Upon a second thought:

The Carson insert is quite possibly a desperate piece of Foxy Marketing cleverness to insert something/anything/naked-bodies to tease ardent Trump supporters to stay with Foxy trying to move with the times and to move with the new President.


All a game of advertising click-bait?

Foxy is for 'entertainment' after all...

Biden's 'open border' policies enriching drug cartels as migrant crisis escalates: Gov. Abbott.

Abbott also said border officers told him that there have already been about 110,000 apprehensions in the Rio Grande Valley Sector this year, surpassing the 90,000 total in the sector from last year.
Of the 110,000 people, Abbott said officers found 800 criminal aliens who have previously been arrested and deported from the U.S., 78 sex offenders and 62 gang members, which include MS-13 gangs.

Foxy click-bait entertainment sez:

For all those people to have been intercepted and apprehended, how does that describe any sort of 'open boarder'? They've been apprehended!

What that does suggest is that less of those migrants have died lost in the desert...

And as for the 800 criminals: That is a far better statistic than for the proportion of Americans that are under lock and key at any moment!!


Looks like the real problem is to do something positive about the poverty and criminal gangs in that area...

If the border was being properly enforced, they wouldn't have gotten into this country to be apprehended in the first place.

At what unreasonable infeasible cost in $$$ and for what numbers of lives lost and for what destruction of the environment and wildlife?

Not to mention creating an n'th wonder of the world that would be both an eyesore and a very bad statement suggesting a xenophobic USA...

OK, here's the real meat of the scam..........
If Lyin' Hidin' Puppet Biden and the democrats get the southern border jimmied up to their satisfaction so they can usher in more democratic voters in mass quantities, then comes HR1. Which the democrats have already ramrodded through the house, strictly on party lines, of course.
The most corrupt attempt at manipulating the voting polls the democrats could come up with.
Including, no voter identification required. If you sez you is Joe Blow, you are Joe Blow, and that apparently is good enough for democrats.

Hans von Spakovsky: HR1/For the People Act imperils free and fair elections. Here are the worst 8 parts.

Starting with...........................
1. It would eviscerate state voter ID laws that require a voter to authenticate his identity. Indeed, it would force states to allow anyone to vote who simply signs a form saying that they are who they claim they are.

When there is a problem, many times it pays to stand back and work out whether there is a problem in the first place. On immigration in the U.S. and also in Europe the question I will ask, even if it seems a little odd, is:

Assuming you will want and probably need benefits, such as health care and pensions, in a few years, who is going to pay for them?

The answer of course is - "Those that are of working age."

And there lies a problem or two, the number of retiree's is rising and the number of workers is set to fall. Net result the workers will have to pay more and more taxes if you are to have the retirement you think you deserve.
You might just need to convince those younger people it is in there interest to pay higher taxes just to keep you healthy and warm. They'll probably tell you to "Take a long walk on a short pier." if they are polite.

We know why the number of retiree's is rising, baby boomers and the next couple of generations.

But since then the birth rate has fallen so that for the last twenty years at least, without Immigration, the number of workers paying taxes would fall.

So either you have to persuade the fairer sex to have three kids each or welcome immigrants.

The best of luck trying to persuade women to have more kids, the easier option might just be allow more immigrants. Of course these need to be legal. So some sums need to be done how many to allow in each year and increase the number of visas.
Not decrease them as Trump did, because it now looks like his reductions have probably led to an increase in 'illegals' because they cannot get in legally.

I suspect anything less than something more fortified than the Korean DMZ heading south to north would not satisfy a GOPer. Electronic sensors, minefield, machine gun towers, tank traps, bright lights, cameras, and many more.

Better would be our northern border. You respect them, they respect you.

The problem is the GOPers won't respect others. No matter if it is a neighbor, a democrat or a potential immigrant.

Lyin' Hidin' Big Tax Biden's administration is out to destroy this country as we know it.
Ignore it if you want to, or make liberal excuses why it's OK to do so, but the truth is pretty black and white.
Tax and spend democrats want to take your money so they can spend it on THEIR agendas.
Their goal on the surface is blindingly transparent. Take money out of the hands of the citizens and into the coffers of a liberal, recklessly spending government.
Their real goal is endless power power power for the liberal left.

Hannity: Biden's planned tax hikes, 'green socialism' will hurt every American.

"In other words they want to raise taxes on money that you make, money that you invest and put at risk... they want a piece of that action [as well as] the money you still have left when you finally die and in the interim they are going to go back and get another bite at the apple with the wealth tax."

Lyin' Hidin' Stumblin' Biden can't talk in public......we already know he can't think straight, and it seems he's having trouble climbing stairs now too.
Been a few slips over the years getting on and off Air Force One, but nothing quite like this.
What's Ol' Joe gonna lose the use of next??

Biden stumbles multiple times, falls as he scales Air Force One stairs.

And his cocky mouth comes back to bite him after that little gaff.............

Biden comment mocking Trump's walking resurfaces after president stumbles, falls boarding Air Force One.

After Trump had a little trouble with his step, Lyin' Hidin' Bigmouth Biden quipped...........
"Look at how he steps and look how I step," Biden said at the time. "Watch how I run up ramps and he stumbles down ramps."

Et tu, Biden?

Ouch! Those steps!!

Note:

... Top American leaders have a history of struggling with the stairs used to board the aircraft ...

Former Vice President Mike Pence last year stumbled while boarding Air Force 2. And Biden's previous boss, former President Barack Obama, nearly fell down Air Force One's stairs while disembarking the aircraft in 2015...



Those steps look to have an unnecessarily difficult height/depth ratio...

See: How Staircases Killed So Many Victorians - YouTube


Considering the fine expensive detail for the rest of the plane, are the red carpet steps an afterthought that was handed out to the ineptitude of the PR department?


Ouch!

Lyin' Hidin' Coverup Biden doesn't want anybody to see what is really going on at the border under his watch.
Whatcha hidin', Biden?

Just seen a closeup of those carpet covered steps:

Note that 'normal' steps are at no more than a 45 degree angle of climb and have a square profile deep enough to get your entire foot on each step. So the profile at each step is shaped like an "L" just like a stereotypical staircase.

Those red carpet steps climb at an unnaturally steep angle and have each step overlapping so that you get a "Z" profile for each step as looking from right to left to climb up. Easy enough except they become a deadly trip hazard if in a rush.

Ouch!

Could it be there is the aspect of children being involved and safeguarding against them being intruded upon? Especially so being as there are no parents there!

You can bet that the situation there is being very closely watched.


The real solution is for some close cooperation between the USA and Mexico to work together to solve the human problems that are pushing people to such sad desperation.
