This convoy was organized by a man called Roel Reyes, and not even he could believe the turnout. "I was expecting 15 to 20 cars, max," he told Ferman. The reason Reyes wasn't expecting more cars is that Starr County is not exactly a Republican stronghold. In fact, just four years before, Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in Starr County by 60 points.
But things changed and they changed fast. In the span of just four years, Starr County moved from deep blue to almost red. Donald Trump finished within just five points of Joe Biden. That's a swing of more than 50 points. And the numbers are even more dramatic in nearby Zapata County. Donald Trump lost Zapata County in 2016 by 33 points, but last November, he easily beat Joe Biden. These are big changes, and you're seeing them all along the Rio Grande Valley.
Now to the geniuses looking at these numbers in Washington, trying to figure out what they mean, the thing that leaps out to them immediately is that Starr and Zapata counties are overwhelmingly Hispanic. Starr County is 96% Hispanic, and Zapata is 85%. So how could Hispanics support Donald Trump in numbers like that? (They must be QAnon people!)
Not only are those two counties non-white, they're very poor. Nearly a third of the residents in Starr County live in poverty. The median household income in both those counties is under $35,000 a year. But they're voting for Trump. What the hell is going on?
Well, a lot of things are going on probably, but uncontrolled illegal immigration is definitely one of them, probably the main one. That's completely baffling to people in D.C. If you're a Yale-educated bureaucrat or a nonprofit executive living in Bethesda, you see everything through the lens of identity politics. You've been told to do that, and needless to say, you obey. You always obey.
Most illegal aliens are Hispanic. So you assume that most Hispanics support illegal immigration. That's just how you think. The problem is, you're an idiot. You have no idea what you're talking about, and you have no clue how ignorant you are. How could you know? You never leave Bethesda.
Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, represents both Starr and Zapata Counties, and he sees what's happening. He can't ignore it. On Saturday, he told Fox News that his constituents are being overwhelmed by an influx of migrants from Latin America and the Biden administration is doing nothing to stop it. In fact, they're lying about it.
CUELLAR: It might have started under Trump, but when you're the President, you own the situation, whether it's a success or not a success ... I think in February we're going to get about 100,000 [border crossers]. And again, I don't care what we call it, but I can tell you this, those numbers of people that are being released, they're purposely withholding that information ... I now know that they're bringing people from McAllen over to Laredo, processing them in Laredo, and they're going to release them in my community."
Henry Cuellar says the Biden administration is purposely withholding the number of people being released. Now, why would they do that? How bad is it? Again, this is an elected Democrat admitting that he has no idea how many people are flooding into his community every day because the Biden administration is hiding that information.
Cuellar is supposed to be representing this area, but he has no idea how many of these people compete for his constituents for jobs. He has no clue how many of them are criminals. He has no idea how many of them have COVID. No one knows. The situation there is that out of control.
And it's not just Henry Cuellar who's upset about it. Another Democrat from Texas, State Senator Chuy Hinojosa from McAllen, has charged the Biden administration is encouraging illegal aliens to come, which obviously they are.
"It's gotten worse," Hinojosa recently told The Hill. "I don't think, quite frankly, the Biden administration was aware of what's happening on the ground here, which you can understand, because they're just coming in and trying to get people up to speed with what's happening. But I don't think they were aware that there were that many coming across. The Border Patrol is overwhelmed. They're throwing up their hands because they don't know what to do."
None of this is a problem if you're Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. If you actually live there and you're poor, it's a huge problem.
You shouldn't be surprised by this, either. Our policymakers realized a long time ago that they could simply hide most of the relevant data on illegal immigration and no one would bother to look into it. The total number of illegal immigrants living in the United States has been 11 million "officially" for decades. Everybody repeats that. They keep repeating that number even when all available evidence contradicts that number.
That number is a complete lie. There is some good, nonpartisan research out there that suggests there are at least twice that number of people living here illegally, and possibly many more, quite possibly more than 30 million.
But journalists and the politicians they protect don't get to the bottom of it because it doesn't bother them. They’re all part of one class, the professional class. They run the Democratic Party. And more illegal immigration means cheaper, low-end labor for them.
It doesn't really matter what effect it has on the country. It doesn’t really matter what more crowding does to the environment. We have about 100 million more people living in the United States now than we had 30 years ago. What does that do to the environment? No one cares. Who does it hurt? They don't care.
Of course, if you are being hurt, you do care. If you're living in poverty in the Rio Grande Valley, none of this is an abstraction. The actual numbers matter very much to you.
FOX News’ Casey Stegall recently did what most journalists are refusing to do. He went down to the border to try to understand the scope of the illegal immigration surge that has intensified since Joe Biden became president.
This is obviously a humanitarian crisis, both for Americans and the migrants themselves. Whatever happened to "Those kids in cages! All those unaccompanied minors! Maybe some don't have their parents with them!"? Nobody cares anymore.
It's hypocrisy, yes, but it's so in your face that you have to conclude the hypocrisy itself is not the point. They humiliate you and wear you down by ignoring their own previous statements and blowing right past you with their new agenda.
As Cuellar pointed out, all of this is intentional in the way they're hiding the data, as well as the complete 180 on child overflow facilities. People living in Starr and Zapata counties voted the way they did for a reason. Is it surprising to you that they're being punished for it now? It shouldn't be.
This is a bigger story than just south Texas. It's not just affecting border towns in the Rio Grande Valley. What you're seeing is an attack on an entire social class, an attack on working people; the ones who've been hurt the most by COVID, the ones who saw their lives destroyed after a year of incoherent health mandates from incompetents posing as experts. Just to rub it in, in case you missed the point, the administration is demanding that American citizens remain under Corona Law while foreign nationals living here illegally can do essentially whatever they want.
Illegal immigrants, some infected with coronavirus, can get on a bus and just take off. Who knows where they're going? No one. No one's checking. That would be racism.
Meanwhile, a mom in Ohio dares to watch her son's football game sitting alone in the stands. And for doing that, she gets Tasered, wrestled to the ground, and arrested because she wasn't wearing an obedience mask.
It's awful on every level and, a functioning media would expose it. But instead, our media create diversions so that you won't notice it's happening in the first place. Joy Reid, MSNBC's "race lady" who claims to be oppressed despite being Harvard-educated, will tell you that you have no moral right to worry about COVID.
JOY REID, MARCH 4: You know who the absolute worst is? Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Yes, he's a repeat offender. He's deflecting criticism by dishing out anti-immigrant xenophobia ... For that absurdly racist claim, Governor Abbott is the absolute worst for the second time this week.
"An absurdly racist claim," says the race lady from Harvard. Taking precautions against COVID is racist. Just the other day, they were telling us exactly the opposite. Tomorrow they will tell us something completely different.
They don't mean any of it. Maybe we should ignore them. What actually matters is keeping our country from falling apart. And right now, effectively, we have no southern border. That's a much bigger problem than COVID.

Dr. Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours after treatment. Do you know that the ancient Egypt were civilized by architects from the (500,000 - 4000 BC) Nsukka Civiliation? Now, Dr. Zelenko provides updates on the treatment after he successfully treated 699 COVID-19 patients in New York. In an exclusive interview with former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, Dr. Vladmir Zelenko shares the results of his latest study, which showed that out of his 699 patients treated, zero patients died, zero patients intubated, and four ho
THE AKAN Copied from the book, Reality as Myth by Onyeji Nnaji . The influence of the Akan on their content nations lies on their population and commonwealth of their brother nations. The Akan are one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa. Their population is scattered across West Africa and beyond. Among this huge population of the Akan, the Ghanaians are more popular, perhaps because of the political influence of the Ashanti Empire in the area. Not much is heard or known about other Akan settlements like the Akwamu, the Akyem , the Akuapem, the Denkyira, the Abron, the Aowin, the Ahanta, the Anyi, the Baoule, the Chokosi, the Fante, the Kwahu, the Sefwi, the Ahafo, the Assin, the Evalue, the Wassa the Adjukru, the Akye, the Alladian, the Attie,the M'Bato, the Abidji, the Avikam,the Avatime the Ebrie,
Copied from the Book; " Reality as Myth " by Onyeji Nnaji The beauty of the discovering of the Radar Rivers and their channels is that it disproves the western hegemonic claim of the Euphrates valley being the position of the birth of the great river, all the points that opposed their claims notwithstanding. Even God himself was very perfect in His creation by placing them in their positions, hierarchically, according to their birth. The first river that flowed located the Havilah land where there are good quality gold, bdellium and fine onyx stones. Pison was the oldest of the rivers and it flowed through the land of the southern Africa. The second river flowed northward to Ethiopia. It was when Africa had been overtaken by virtue of her proximity to the Great Water that other parts of the world began to encounter the remaining river; remarkable with Hiddekel.

Strictly for Couples T he biggest risk every marriage faces is what I call the retiring time. There is actually no retiring time for marriage as the union directly speaks of itself. But many marriages normally do have certain time in their history when the couples begin to ware away from the other like a baked clod-and-pebble. By this time the parties find it difficult to retrace the path that once brought them together. You may have heard “I don’t think I sought your hands in marriage with clear eyes”. Next, they may say that the other used means on them. It is not always so, even when some people believe that someone could use means as a wooing instrument. Some of the causes of such situations have been discussed in the series 1 through 3. But when someone does not have any of these problems discussed in the series, then it is simply that such a wife needs to make herself look relatively younger that her age to enforce attraction on her husband. To do this one need
Copied from the book, Reality as Myths by Onyeji Nnaji T he world of the Bantu travellers shows the walls of the migration that recorded the highest population among the African settlement. Originating from the largest population among the four races that settled in the east before time, all Bantu travellers were pygmies; for that was the nature of the Umudiala, the generation that gave birth to them. Bantu migration was rated the third earliest migration of the Negro race from the east. In this regard, all their movement had involved great population of people compared to the number of people involved in the two earlier populations that gave birth to Ethiopia, Nubia and Egypt: the Walker Traveller, and the Race of Anu. Bantu population as we have identified in the third chapter above outweighs the rest of the population of the ancient fathers that founded many of the nations of antiquity mentioned earlier. Discussing them in beat will pose a little challenge since

This thing has happened for over three times. Each time we brought a new salesgirl, the girl would stay for two or three months; and suddenly she would end her contract with us. In all these, my husband did not know. So, being that the girls usually stole money and other items, the reason for their departure became genuine, thus: they ran away to avoid being punished for their actions. But behind this, the underlying truth is that the girls had been embarrassed by my neighbour who would warn them to leave her loosed husband. Re
T he name Nkalaha is a coinage which stands for a people occupying a geographical land and regional setting in the eastern part of Nigeria. It is a coinage which attempts to explain the direction of movement and adventure of the men who founded the community in the 15th century AD. According to oral sources and some documentation about this community, some of these men were believed to have traveled from Ida, old Benue state of Nigeria to inhabit the land. These men had traveled on different days to locate the place. Onojah who originally founded the land was said to have been in a deep search for a place of safety as he was besieged by a fate that appeared to make him somewhat incompatible with his own people. Nkalaha is one of the communities that make up Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Nkalaha occupied the northern part of Ishielu Local Government Area. She is located through the zip 135.031.000. The community sits on 923.768km 2 . She shares boundaries
The Mystery of Number, “Five” in the Igbo Cosmology. From: Aspects of the Ancient African Metaphysics; Chapter: Seven; Topic: Igbo Geometries and the Metaphysics of Numbers. Author: Onyeji Nnaji. I n the Igbo cosmology, the word Isee is a definite symbolic word as revealed through the Igbo language and culture. A human being has five fingers, five toes. The hands and feet are fundamentals to the survival in life as they are necessary in ensuring that man moves to places where he gets food and grapples on the food to sustain his life. To this view, the rhetoric that binds vocatives in the form of incantation (anchoring on the heart-lock: four ) and the concomitant reprisal in the manner of affirmation that holds the human life bind to his original spiritual person, therefore defining existence and essences are unified by the corresponding echo: Isee!!!!! Therefore it stands that anytime a prayer is said in the Igbo land, the attendants who would want the fulfillment of the
INTRODUCTION One thing that made Udi remarkable is the indubitable legacy adopted in commemoration of the legendry fighter, Uto at Nsude. It was one of the greatest contributions of the descendants of Agbaja to the survival of Nsukka civilization of memory. Uto held from Oshie. Uto dies of small pox after a mercenary battle he was hired to fight in the ancient Benin. His body was buried in the evil forest as the tradition demanded. Although he lived no longer, the stepped pyramids above were adopted to commemorate the lasting peace he brought to the entire Oshie and Udi nation of people. Another remarkable thing about Udi is the fertility of the land. This has contributed widely in sustaining the inhabitants and provided a name for the inhabitants in the manner of Abakaliki, Umudike, Ogbaru, Igboariam, Ohaji, Uzouwani, etc., especially in Amofia-Agu, Affa. Udi is a land of great rivers and springs: Adaada, Ajali, Oji, Aria, Nvenu, Ngene Evu, Iyi Ububo, etc. as was the situ
There are four generations…, and the fourth generation, which is the most exalted, is kingless and perfect. These people will enter the holy place of their Father and they will reside in rest … They are kings. They are the immortal within the mortal ( The Nag Hammadi, 219 ) Also read Nsukka Civilization: The Peopling of Ancient Nsukka One of the African homes that colonialism has completely deformed beyond certain level of recognition is Nsukka. Colonialism apart, the most affecting factor to the survival of the meaning which the rich cultural enclave, Nsukka, carries will best be blamed on postcolonial political structure. The biggest harm all these have against Nsukka as a people is that they rubbed her of the meaning of her name; their place of origin; how their fathers managed to come into their present abodes and who their ancestors were. A profound understanding of the excerpt above will open the door towards deciphering the meaning and origin of the people call
