American Elephants: The Continually Growing Problem of Illegal Immigration

(Yuma Border Patrol Photo) We talk a lot about the border, and the potential wall. Some of the objections seem to attach to the “wall” word. Sounds mean, or unwelcoming. Not mean, but certainly unwelcoming, and justifiably so. I think most Americans welcome legal immigrants, it’s the illegal, the drugs, the crime, the dependence on […]

American Elephants: “Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, But Words Can Never Harm Me!”

Old time saying or “aphorism”: There are a lot of words to describe those old-time sayings your grandmother had. In our family, when you dropped something breakable and it broke – my aunt always said smartly “You dropped something!” I really have to guard my tongue to keep from saying it, because it always enrages […]

American Elephants: Here’s Obama’s Border Patrol Chief, Who Supports Trump’s Wall

You may have noticed that not many politicians seem to be interested in talking to the people who actually are responsible for manning the border, and keeping those who are not obeying the law out. Odd, but fairly typical. It might also be interesting to see how many of our very vocal politicians have actually […]

American Elephants: Do You Live on the Coast of California? They’re Coming for You!

The California Coastal Commission is set to empower local governments to pursue eminent domain to take 1,100 miles of coastline in order to prepare for sea level rise.

American Elephants: Nancy Pelosi’s Misguided Speech

Nancy Pelosi called a potential border wall (or barrier) “immoral.” I suppose that means that all the poor, often illiterate, illegal immigrants are really entitled to American citizenship just for the effort of crossing the border, simply because they are poor and to be pitied. Unfortunately a large percentage of them have been deported previously, […]

American Elephants: Heather MacDonald Explains the “Diversity” Fraud!

If you wonder why some new college graduates seem a little under-educated, you can blame it on the “social justice” people, and their loony ideas. There is no such thing as “social justice” and “Diversity” is bunk. The diversity that matters is diversity of ideas, freedom of thought, but that is not what they are […]

Jim Acosta, CNN’s White House Correspondent, was in McAllen, Texas today with the President’s party, there to meet with Border Patrol people and get a look at the border.

American Elephants: The “Green New Deal” and Other Lefty Fantasies

Supposedly Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is quite popular among the new far-leftists in Congress. Democrats remain enamored of the memory of FDR. Some believe that he saved the nation from the Great Depression, (he didn’t). But anything with the term “New Deal” will be more popular on the Left. Young Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has a […]

American Elephants: The Speech and the Aftermath

President Trump’s speech from the Oval Office tonight was “filled with lies”, “racist,” the partisan media even questioned whether the media should allow the President of the United States to address the nation from the Oval Office. “Should allow!” That statement clearly demonstrates just where we are today, and how far the Democrat Party has […]

American Elephants: Windstorm Last Night

Finally! Back online. We had a significant windstorm last night, and lost our internet connection early on. Didn’t lose power this time. Didn’t lose any trees, just lots of branches and cones.

American Elephants: Pelosi and Schumer, Terrorists and Drug Smugglers, the Border Patrol and President Trump

Nancy Pelosi, upon being sworn in as the new Speaker of the House, has reiterated her refusal to give President Trump even one cent for his border wall. The wall, she announced, is an immorality. The best approach “is comprehensive immigration reform, where we address the whole package of reforms.” Uh huh. She says: We’ve […]

American Elephants: Do The Democrats Really Want Open Borders? Or Are They Only Opposed to Anything Trump?

How very odd our present public conversations have become. It’s as if we are speaking different languages. Democrats seem to lack any understanding of basic free-market capitalism and are sure it’s all about the haves and the have nots, the billionaires and the homeless. They hold positive feelings about the latter, which makes them feel […]

Victor Davis Hanson took on the Democrat rejection of a border wall under the headline “Dems Hate The Border Wall Because They Know It Will Work.” There was likely never going to be “comprehensive immigration reform” or any deal amnestying the DACA recipients in exchange for building the wall. Democrats in the present political landscape […]

American Elephants: Tucker Carlson Takes a Look at Trump Derangement

I suspect most of us have marveled at the strange and vicious Leftist reaction to the election of President Trump.

American Elephants: Trump Derangement Syndrome and How It Works

Republicans are not usually inclined to take part in demonstrations or marches, to carry political signs, that sort of thing. Instead they are apt to search for more information, maybe write their congressperson, and if they really get irritated, they might go to one of the congressperson’s public meetings. If it turns out that they […]
