“Freedom has cost too much blood and agony to be relinquished at the cheap price of rhetoric.” ― Thomas Sowell
THE DAY AT A GLANCE:
Today’s brief begins with underreported immigration news. As the news cycle continues to be over-saturated with Russia-Ukraine War content, other important events are being disregarded.
When it comes to issues like immigration, one can’t help but think the disregard is intentional. In February alone there were 164,973 encounters at the Southern border, whereas in 2020 that number was only 36,687.
Border patrol is continuing to implement Title 42 which has prevented nearly half of migrants from entering the country. However, the increase in migrants can be correlated to Biden’s reversal of Trump-era policies.
Amid the surge, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requested volunteers to join border patrol forces.
‘Once again, we need to tap into our department’s greatest resource: the skills of our talented and diverse workforce. Today, I am asking you to consider stepping forward to support the DHS Volunteer Force,’ an email to employees says.
‘[Customs and Border Protection] continues to encounter large numbers of individuals at the southwest border,’ the email adds. ‘We are seeking your help to support our CBP frontline workforce.’
Meanwhile, as the 2022 elections approach and 2024 becomes clearer, we’re looking back at the decisions of the US intelligence community throughout the last year.
An independent journalist, Techno Frog’s latest piece highlights the suspicious activity intel leaders have engaged in. The report details the scandalous Hunter Biden Laptop, the lies and lack of coverage, to the Lincoln Project’s disgracefulness.
. . .our Intelligence Community is keen on protecting the corrupt and committed to deceiving the public to achieve their goals. In other words, the intelligence operations have come for the Americans. We’re targets – and we’re the victims.
Before You Go:
Here is a quick recap of the latest atrocities being committed within the Russia-Ukraine War:
Putin has made inhumane comments as the death and refugee toll speeds up in Ukraine. As mass graves were being dug, Putin said,
The Russian people will always be able to distinguish true patriots from scum and traitors and simply spit them out like a fly that accidentally flew into their mouths. I am convinced that such a natural and necessary self-purification of society will only strengthen our country, our solidarity, cohesion and readiness to respond to any challenges.
The latest attacks have included missile strikes, as pictured below.
Fox News’ Howard Kurtz said,
If this sounds like the mass murderer who once wanted to create a master race – and I don’t use the comparison lightly – that’s by design. How appalling that Putin fabricates the notion of neo-Nazis in the government of Ukraine’s first Jewish president, and now sounds like a Third Reich tyrant.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi recited a poem for the people of Ukraine, allegedly written by U2 member Bono.
The crowd, Congress’ annual Friends of St. Patrick luncheon, and Twitter were bewildered by her performance. Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
That’s it for today. Happy Saturday!
