Immigration – a familiar face shows up

| October 26, 2023

We know about our porous southern border, and the thousands of folks crossing daily. For years,  Mexicans predominated. More recently, ‘refugees’ fleeing criminal gangs in countries like El Salvador have been been in the majority. Now it seems a baddie has figured out how to weaponize the process against us.

Nicaragua is using migration against the U.S. by chartering hundreds of flights to ferry migrants from Haiti and Cuba, an expert warns.

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega’s government is uniquely positioned to assist migrants attempting to reach the U.S. from the Caribbean islands and elsewhere, as it does not require many travelers to have a visa. Ortega’s government faces increasing sanctions from the U.S., and funneling migrants to the U.S.-Mexico border is one of the few ways it can retaliate.

…Manuel Orozco, director of the Migration, Remittances and Development Program at the Inter-American Dialogue, told The Associated Press. “This is definitely a concrete example of weaponizing migration as a foreign policy.”

Flight data shows 268 charter flights from Haiti to Nicaragua and 172 flights from Cuba to Nicaragua since just August. The flights account for 31,000 Haitian migrants and 17,000 Cubans. In other words, Nicaragua contributed roughly 60% of the Haitian migrants U.S. authorities have encountered over the same period.

Not only is Nicaragua causing us problems, they are profiting from them:

The charter flights are far from cheap for the migrants as well, with tickets ranging from $3,000 to $5,000 per seat.

“Ortega is going to use this migration issue to say to the United States that we’re the ones in control,” Enrique Martínez, a spokesperson for the dissident group Platform for Democratic Unity, told the outlet. ” And if they want to stop this, they’re going to have to negotiate.”

Have to admit, a little grudging respect is in order. Ortega has our feckless President by the short hairs without doing anything overtly hostile.

‘Course, if we actually controlled our border…

We could always deal with Nicaragua like we did back in the early 1900’s, and send a regiment or two of Marines in to make them behave.


I prefer the response we gave to Qua-daffyduck – bomb all his residences then make the rubble bounce.

Keeps our troops out of the jungles. If the idjit survives, it makes him think twice before poking the bear.

Oh, come on. A 13 year old boy could talk feeble into buying beer and giving him his car keys. Ortega’s idea isn’t even original. He just stole the idea of what Guv’s Abbot and Desantis were already doing.

Should get military & all civilians that choose to participate, to form a line at the border, about 10 yards in, facing south. Oh, and armed. Anyone approaching the border, get two warnings, one English, one Spanish/Mexican, to turn around & go back home. If they cross the border, they’re shot. End of statement.

Testify! We have spent trillions of $s to defend the world and very little to defend the US. We are being invaded on a daily basis and these invaders are NOT coming here to become American Citizens. They are coming for the free sh^t and to “…fundamentally change the face of America…”. It is the Constitutional Duty of the Federal Government “…to provide for the common defense…” and they are just flat not doing their duty. It is as simple as that.

Red Dawn II and/or Day of Wrath is coming, just as sure as God made little green apples If you haven’t already done so…



Red Dawn II was a sucky movie. Unlike the original with the actual World’s Most Interesting Man; William Smith and the talented Powers Boothe.


Looks like they have the border on total lockdown now though.

Feds Quietly Release ‘Disastrous’ Border Numbers When No One Is Paying Attention (

“CBP releases RECORD BREAKING Sept FY23 Encounters – 269,735 – highest month ever on record – brings FY23 Total to highest year ever on record – 2,475,669,” Fox News Washington correspondent Griff Jenkins noted on the social media platform X.

See? they have clearly peaked. Nowhere to go but downhill from here.


Jus’ sayin’…

Well, so what? Don’t blame him for sending his excess population to the U.S., blame the filthy traitors who allow it. Particularly the filthy traitors of the Republican Party, the so-called opposition party. Want to end this? Simply enforce the laws that make it illegal to hire an illegal, start with large fines and end with putting multiple offenders in prison. Let some CEOs start going to jail and it will all come to a screeching halt overnight. This crying by the phony bastards at Fox News or Republican politicians is a con game, they don’t intend to do anything about mass immigration, never have and never will. Just more deflection, more boob-bait for the bubbas (that’s you). Ortega’s not responsible, they are. They hate your guts and don’t intend to do a thing for you.
