MTG Defends Her Call For a ‘National Divorce’ Within the U.S.

by Sarah Arnold, Townhall:

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) defended her comments earlier this week about the U.S. needing to undergo a “national divorce.” 

During an interview on Fox News, Greene said she wasn’t calling for a civil war but argued for a peaceful divorce between red and blue states.

Those Abandoning Blue States Should Abandon Democrats, Too

by Trevor Thomas, American Thinker:

A recent New York Post article declared that, in a “staggering exodus,” in 2022, more residents of New York moved to Florida “than any other year in history.”  The article reveals,

A staggering 64,577 Empire Staters exchanged their driver’s licenses for the Sunshine State version last year, according to figures from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

“They come in every day,” a staffer at a Jacksonville DMV office told The Post this week with a weary laugh. “I hear all the complaints. I feel like a therapist sometimes.”

The transfer of a driver’s license from one state to another is considered a reliable metric for relocation, since such a decision suggests the move is a lasting one.  The 2022 exodus from New York to Florida is a 39% increase from 2019 — the last pre-pandemic year — and an astounding 46% increase from 2017.  New York is far from alone in the exodus that is plaguing America’s blue states.

When Nighttime Falls. Lessons from “Savage Continent”

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

I’ve been working my way through Savage Continent by Keith Lowe lately, and it’s one of the most heart-rending books I’ve ever read. It’s up there with We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families for me. Extremely powerful, important works, that leave you feeling more angry than relaxed, but after you’re finished reading them, you understand that you’ve learned about a time you needed to know about. If you’ve been to the Holocaust Museum, Pearl Harbor Memorial, or Ground Zero in NYC, you know the feeling.

Mass Exodus: Vast Hordes Of Americans Are Fleeing Blue States With High Crime Rates

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

As our society continues to deteriorate all around us, rising crime has become one of the primary reasons why so many Americans are choosing to relocate to a different part of the country.  According to the National Association of Realtors, there was a tremendous amount of domestic migration in 2022.  Some people are choosing to relocate for better employment opportunities, some are choosing to relocate to states with lower tax rates, and some are choosing to relocate for health reasons.  But to me, one of the most striking trends is the fact that red states with low crime rates are seeing tremendous population growth, while blue states with high crime rates are losing residents at a staggering pace.

Europe is Experiencing a MASSIVE New Migrant Crisis Which No One Seems to be Acknowledging.

by Natalie Winters, The National Pulse:

In 2022 around 330,000 people crossed into Europe illegally, according to Frontex, the European Union’s border agency – the largest number since the Migrant Crisis of 2015-16 and a 64 percent increase on 2021. The figures do not include the 13 million refugees who fled Ukraine and entered the EU due to the conflict with Russia, ten million of whom have subsequently returned home.

But But But…. (States CAN Stop Illegal Immigration)

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

If your state doesn’t then they don’t care.

The Department of Economic Opportunity sent letters to several businesses, flagging the various companies for “repeat non-responsiveness” to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).

“If you persist and fail to respond to the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), there will be significant consequences,” the letters reads, warning that the notice serves as the “final opportunity to respond before consequences are initiated.”

Florida’s legislature passed a law that required all employers to run E-Verify on every employee and certify they have done so, subject to audit.  This is a trivial, no-cost requirement in that its a simple computer check.  It is not absolutely bomb-proof but very close, and makes using a stolen Social Security number (or a made up one) almost certain to get declined and, for those employers who “don’t care” they won’t run it at all and thus can’t be in compliance.

Sanctuary State Colorado Begins Busing Border Crossers to Sanctuary City New York

by John Binder, Breitbart:

Officials in the sanctuary state of Colorado, with an influx of border crossers and illegal aliens arriving, are sending migrant buses to New York City, also a sanctuary jurisdiction.

For nearly a year, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has sent busloads of border crossers and illegal aliens to sanctuary cities like New York City, Chicago, and Washington, DC in the hopes of offloading the costs associated with illegal immigration to regions that purport to support the migrant arrivals.

Title 42 And Stupidity

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

Unless you live under a rock you have heard the Supreme Court has agreed to hear a challenge to the lifting of Title 42 restrictions on entry for the purpose of immigration.

Go read the dissent.  It is worth the time and not all that long, since its simply a stay and a decision to take cert, the petition for same can be found here.

I am forced to agree with the dissent for one simple reason: The Supreme Court is not the arbiter of political policy, only Constitutionality.  At the same time I’m forced to agree with the majority:  Biden claims Title 42 is no longer required because there is no longer a pandemic emergency but he has not dropped the Public Health Emergency order and in fact recently extended it.

Tucker Carlson Pushes Texas Governor Greg Abbott to Take Stronger Measures at the Southern Border

by Jose Nino, Big League Politics:

On December 21, 2022, Fox News host Tucker Carlson pushed Governor Greg Abbott to reveal what his government is doing to protect the border. This comes at a time when the federal government is doing nothing as the border is being Zerg Rushed by illegal alien invaders.

During his nightly show, Carlson highlighted how Abbott won his re-election bid by campaigning on a strong border security policy. In his platform, Abbott called for the deployment of thousands of National Guard troops to curb illegal immigration.

Open Borders Come to Martha’s Vineyard

from Moonbattery:

Liberal elitists advance such pernicious policies because they have been isolated from their consequences. Inflation is less worrisome to those who have more than enough money. Likewise, they don’t mind if America degenerates into a violent hellhole, because within their exclusive communities, all is copacetic — or at least it has been.

As the ship goes down, those in the priciest cabins are getting wet too. Martha’s Vineyard — where the Moonbat Messiah Barack Obama himself has one of his several homes — is a case in point.

NYC Mayor declares ’emergency’ over migrants, 12 months after campaigning for more migrants

from Natural News:

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) declared a state of emergency Friday over the ongoing flood of migrants into the Big Apple — complaining that the city’s infrastructure is unable to sustain them and taxpayers will be on the hook for $1 billion for housing and social services.

(Article by Baxter Dmitry republished from

“This is unsustainable,” Adams said. “New York City is doing all we can but we are reaching the outer limit of our ability to help.”

Mexican Criminal Cartel Profits up 2,500% Thanks to Biden

from Moonbattery:

The economic pain of letting Biden’s leftist handlers take power has been severe. The Dow Jones is down about 1,600 points since Creepy Joe’s inauguration. Inflation is a crippling 8.5%. Because there is no indication that they will stop doubling down on their destructive policies, there is no hope that the economy will improve until Democrats are removed from power. Yet some make out quite well even now. The open border means big profits for Mexico’s criminal cartels:
