Line in the sand: DRAWN

Not to prattle overmuch about this stuff, mind, but it seems to me that what Abbott has done with his defiant statement yesterday and his rock-steady refusal to allow CBP and DHS into Eagle Pass especially cannot be overstated. More on that anon; first, what our blog-bud Sefton has to say about the execrable Joaquin Castro is dead on the money.

First, Joaquin Castro is an insidious, rabid racialist and Marxist who has a hate on for America as founded. See his full rap sheet here via the invaluable Discover the Networks. He’s a huge fan of what is known as la Reconquista, the reconquest of much of the western United States he feels stolen by the Yanquis from Mexico. Much of that crap comes from a pseudo political and totally racist hate group known as “La Raza,” “The Race” in English, which his mother was/is intimately involved in. Don’t bother looking it up as a group being monitored by the SPLC or the DOJ. And yet “replacement theory” is crazy talk, right? Funny, La Raza rhymes with Gaza. But I digress.

Second, the gall of this puta madre to claim Abbott is responsible for the chaos on the border is off the charts. But, that’s a hallmark of Leftists. Projection. And Joe Manchin is a clueless douchebag. Biden and his handlers have intentionally erased our borders and fomented an invasion of the numerical equivalent of one of the largest armies in the world. The chaos, dislocation, criminal violence and potentially terrorist violence, individually or as one or more mass events, that is being unleashed and soon to be unleashed is the greatest national security threat the American people have ever faced.

Amen to every word of it, right down the line. I saw someplace or other that fake Hispanic Bobby “Beto” O’Rourke has put his oar in as well, with a similar plea for Biden to hurry up and federalize the TNG quick before something truly awful happens—like, say, Texas re-establishing and securing its southern border or something. No link, because fuck his stupid, grubby ass. As if anybody gives a fudgy fart what “Beto” thinks about anything anyhow.

Meanwhile, this happened:


Beautiful!

Whatever you may think about Abbott’s sincerity and backbone, the takeaway is this: things like this have a way of expanding way beyond the original intentions of those who first put the machine in motion, sometimes even against the originators’ wishes. That’s exactly what I see happening here; by r’aring up on his hind legs and defying a patently illegitimate rogue government, Abbott has enheartened and inspired the US subject-population in ways that are likely to generate results which cannot be predicted or controlled—not by Abbott, not by Biden, not by Biden’s FederalGovCo puppeteers, not by anybody.

All across the nation (even New Hampshire, ferchrissakes!), millions of fed-up Real Americans have been anxiously waiting for this historic moment, both dreading it and praying for it. At long last, it has arrived…thanks mostly to one Governor Greg Abbott. Call him a “cuck,” call him faithless and unreliable, call him whatever you like. It doesn’t matter now; where those put-upon millions take this is now completely out of his hands. Those of us who have long and intently studied it know that history can be funny like that sometimes.

Like all conflagrations, it needed but a single spark to set this blaze off—a spark which can often come from seemingly unlikely tinder. Down the years, it will be interesting indeed to learn if Abbott’s pivotal role will even be remembered by any but serious historians. At this point, there’s just one sure thing: when one sets out to ride a tiger, the tiger will assuredly go where HE wants to go, without reference to his pipsqueak passenger’s opinions regarding course, destination, distance, or speed.

As for those urging that Abbott the “cuck” not be trusted, that it’s all just another ploy or “trap,” I repeat: this isn’t about Abbott anymore, it’s out of his hands, or at least will be very soon. He may have started it, but it’s much bigger than any single man or personality; it will be up to Real Americans to finish it. Which, actually, is exactly as it should be.

Update! More on that declaration of support from 25 governors.

Governor Abbott has been a vocal critic of the Biden administration’s immigration policies, which he believes have encouraged a surge in illegal border crossings. In response, he has implemented a series of measures to strengthen border security, including deploying the Texas National Guard to the border and constructing additional fencing.

The Biden administration has sought to counter these efforts by challenging the legality of the state’s actions and attempting to remove border fencing in certain areas. However, the 25 Republican governors have pledged to stand by Governor Abbott and the state of Texas in their fight to secure the border.

In their joint statement, the governors argue that “the Biden Administration has attacked and sued Texas for stepping up to protect American citizens from historic levels of illegal immigrants, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and terrorists entering our country.” They further assert that “we do it in part because the Biden Administration is refusing to enforce immigration laws already on the books and is illegally allowing mass parole across America of migrants who entered our country illegally.”

The governors also point to their previous efforts to address the border crisis, including sending personnel and resources to Texas and Arizona through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC).

The support of these 25 Republican governors underscores the growing divide between the Biden administration and many state leaders on the issue of border security. As the battle over the border continues, it remains to be seen whether Governor Abbott and his allies will be able to maintain their efforts to secure the border in the face of opposition from the federal government.

Indeed it does. We haven’t reached a tipping point quite yet, but if the groundswell of righteous defiance continues and we all stand fast against the lawless Biden/Shadow State junta, rejection and resistance could intensify into outright rebellion faster than anyone imagines.

The saddest part of all is that it never should have come to this in the first damned place. There is simply no plausible argument to be made here that the Biden junta and its pig-ignorant supporters are in the right, nor that their heedless criminality proceeds from good intentions. The US Constitution, black-letter law both federal and state, and plain, ordinary old common sense all say otherwise, flatly and unequivocally. Should the open-borders malefactors persist, they will force a physical confrontation that they cannot win with liberty-minded patriots who have nothing left to lose.

  1. I’ve not been the world’s biggest fan of Abbott, but I think we have gone well beyond a “ploy.”  I think a “ploy” would have stopped after the SC ruling.  For whatever reason, I think he is in this now.  Whether he’ll still be in it when it comes time to point guns – AND THAT POINT WILL ASSUREDLY COME – we will see.  But it does seem that events have now been set in motion that will continue to be in motion.  We shall see.  Right now I’m giving Abbott the credit.

    1. He deserves it, I think, whatever he might or might not have been before. What is that old quote about not insisting on putting virtuous men who will do the right thing into political office, but making sure that lesser men will find it more expedient to do the right thing despite themselves…? Need to look that one up.

      I think that so many of us have been waiting so long for a real leader to stand up and make the first move that events will quickly escalate well beyond Abbott’s power to slow or even stop them, even if he wanted to. The move has now been made thanks to Abbott, the wheels are turning, and very soon this whole thing is going to be so big that NOBODY can stop it. It’s all kinda scary on the face of it, but if the last three dismal years have taught us anything, it’s that this confrontation is also both necessary and inevitable.

      As you say, the time for pointing guns WILL assuredly come. I don’t think there’s any way to prevent it at this point, barring some shocking, inconceivable development. There’s still time for the Biden/Deep State junta to back down–maybe–but I see no reason whatsoever to expect that they will.

      1. Well, that was easy:

        “I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”

        The great Milton Friedman, that was.

  2. The best I’ve ever been able to say about Abbott is that he can usually be persuaded (quotes probably implied) to do the right thing.  Some have speculated that Paxton is the backbone behind the governor.  Whatever.  As you pointed out, this situation is now pretty much out of his hands.  Happy to give him the credit for getting this party started.

    San Antonio has been a processing center for the illegal invaders since this whole thing got underway in earnest.  Local law enforcement is providing off-the-books security at the centers not located within the boundaries of a military base.  And loathe as I am to admit it, Joaquin “la raza Commie” Castro is the Congresscritter for the district in which I reside.  Every once in a while I waste some time sending him a mostly polite letter, just for the entertainment value of forcing one of his “staph” to send me a reply.

    All that is to say I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the southern border for several years now.  The tension is palpable — not gonna lie.  Odds are about 1 in 2 I’ll be in town when (not if) the festivities commence.

    1. “Some have speculated that Paxton is the backbone behind the governor. Whatever.”

      Funny you should mention that; earlier this evening, I proposed that exact same idea in a phone conversation with my cousin Mark. From what I’ve seen so far, it’s entirely plausible that Paxton’s influence with Abbott is so strong that he’s not just the backbone, but the brains of the outfit as well. Which, as you said, is just fine by me.

      Can’t say I’ve studied up on either of them enough to really know much about their behind-the-scenes relationship, but in any event both Paxton and Abbott are making all the right moves and saying all the right things at the very moment we most need them to. Whatever transpires from here, they deserve full props for that. I damned sure don’t see anybody else doing it.

      Their actions have provided a strong base for the other red-state governors to rally on, and so far it appears to be working extremely well. At this point, it’s up to all Real Americans to express their support for what they’re doing loud and clear, shouting from the rooftops nationwide. Whatever we can do along those lines, we MUST do: letters to the editor, phone calls to our Congressmen, vociferous protests at city council/school board meetings, ALL of it.

      Remember the Tea Party movement years ago? We need to make that wave look small, a for-real tsunami compared to a small bass boat’s wake-ripples. In sum, we must get ’em skeered and then keep the skeer on ’em, as a great man once advised. Nothing less will do.

      1. I’ll give Abbot credit for now, but there is no doubt in my mind that Texas AG has the brains and the spine to be the man in charge. Were I Trump, Ken Paxton would be my AG, tasked with one thing only – going after the corrupt to the core commies that stole the election in 2020 and installed the biden puppet in office.
        Paxton has stood up to the worst of them already, the R party Bush clan that tried to remove him from the Texas AG position. He can take on the rest of them with presidential help.
        And Trump should force the R party to confirm Paxton, or else, and I’m assuming the R party gets control of the senate in the next election. Coattails and all. Yes, it assumes the cheat is not enough.

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion.

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
