White is right, that is the real basis for almost everything the right believes in. Deny it all you want but it is still true.

Memo to the governor: you're a Republican, as are all of your friends and workmates. This whole "Affront to the constitution" thing you mentioned doesn't carry any water among Republicans. You had better watch your back, before someone shoots you there, or attempts to overthrow you and your administration. Remember: they're calling from inside the state house...

Now I might understand it if he sent the NG to the Canadian border. After all, at least his State does border Canada. But Mexico? Can anyone say "showboating"?

The idaho lt governor just got himself kicked out of the cult. They'll replace him with someone who will do whatever the cult wants.

The loony Lt Governor is running to replace the current Governor, and she just earned some headlines and MAGAt votes thanks to these little bits of performance theater. I used to live in Eastern WA, and had no idea that the Governor and Lt Gov do not run as a ticket. As bad as the governor is and he has especially been on Covid, the Lt Gov appears to be a truly insane spun out MAGAt moron, perfect for Dotard's approval!

If it's not a problem, WHY DID DEMS GO NUTS WHEN IT WAS HAPPENING AT A LESSER LEVEL DURING A REP IN OFFICE? Seriously, you kids don't even try anymore. The border right now is much worse than it was when it became a national emergency to Dems under Trump. The numbers are higher. The cages still exist. Kids are still getting separated from families. The ONLY difference in all of it is the noticeable lack of media coverage by Liberal outlets. In other words, white is right to Dems right now and Dems do nothing about it, and Lib kids apparently aren't trying to hold them accountable for it. The party of racial division strikes again. Maybe Reps need to send an extremer from their side to go to the border and take fake pictures of him/her crying and showboating to get Dems to feel like it is a problem again?

Go ahead, try to say that what is happening at the border right now isn't bad and doesn't deserve the same response as when Trump was in office. No matter what you bring up as proof, it can be debunked by non-biased facts. This isn't like most situations where it's just opinion vs. opinion. This is actual reality playing out at an increased scale of severity that should have prompted a relational degree of response or, at the very very least, the same response as before by Dems, but it hasn't. And there are two explanations...1) Dems are racist and don't care or 2) Dems are hypocrites. I mean, I guess option 3 is that it could be both but I'll give Libs some credit.
