Make the Border Kids Americans
Politico ^ | July 17, 2014 | Hugh Hewitt

Posted on 07/18/2014 8:19:45 AM PDT by C19fan

Approximately 90,000 minors have entered the country in the two years since President Obama, whether out of the best of intentions, cynical political calculation or as another of his serial expressions of incompetence, allowed the idea to take hold abroad that kids who were brought to the country would be allowed to stay. Numbers are swelling rapidly and detention centers are bursting at the seams. Among them are thousands of unaccompanied Central American children—approximately 52,000 since October, according to federal records .....................................................

The very young among them should find “forever families” right here, right now. They should become Americans. The process is not hard to imagine in broad outline or to implement quickly.

I used to listen to Hugh Hewitt when I lived on the Left Coast. Over time I got of him as his RINOism grew more and more. This guy was in the tank for Willard. There are almost 9 million 0-14 year olds in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras:

Approximately 11% of Mexicans live abroad so is Hewitt proposing the US let in almost a million kids right now from those three Central American countries. I am underestimating because because the 15-18 year olds are grouped in the 15 - 24 age group.

Ballot box and calling reps isn't cutting it folks.

Either we take matters into our own hands, or we sit back and passively watch the continued destruction of our nation.

They may have a point.

If we could make all those who voted for the Obamadork foreigners and ship THEM to some poor unfortunate country, this might be a net plus for us.

After all, those kids probably have far higher IQs than our liberal voting class.

The left, who is cheering on this “Camp of the Saints” flood of children from alien cultures, will be so conflicted about the proposition to make these children “American”. The very reason the left (er, now “progressives”) likes this invasion goes to an existential reason: the left is so self-loathing they are self-loathing about the broader American society, culture and even nature as well.

The left, in short wants to impose any culture on American than it has historically had. Any culture will do for their overarching purpose which is like Boko Haram: western culture is unclean and must be destroyed. It matters not that the culture they seek to replace ours with has its own set of problems. The goal is like all of liberalism: the search to create Utopia based on any values other than those that God expresses in Scripture. Hence the aversion to anything “white”, for the left projects on to “white” people conservative, culturally Christian values and to people who are not “white” (those they call “people of color”) values that are in opposition to those.

This is deep, and deeply troubling. It will not end well, especially because it is so difficult to see the real reasons behind these events.

When used by the government, “humanitarianism” and “empathy” ALWAYS mean socialism. If the bleeding hearts would just bleed to death, our economy wouldn’t be on life support.

Hugh Hewitt a big windy douche bag, claims to be a conservative. Hey Hugh baby what would you do with the terrorists, MS-13 youths entering the country? The most compassionate thing to do for all illegals entering, is to give them a bar of soap, hose them down, a peanut butter & jelly sandwich,put them on a bus and send them back to where they came from. If Obama were white he'd be impeached for losing our sovereignty. Close down the friggin’ border now!

Parents must not be allowed to profit by sending their children across the border unaccompanied.

Either the children are to be reunited with their families in their home countries, or they must be kept here, while their families are excluded.

It should be presumed that anybody who hands over a child to a coyote is an unfit parent, and parental rights should be terminated. If the children are to be kept here, they will need to be placed in either a humane group educational setting or with unrelated adoptive families.

But under no circumstances should parents be permitted to “bootstrap” themselves across the border by sending a child ahead of them.

“The very young among them should find “forever families” right here, right now. They should become Americans. The process is not hard to imagine in broad outline or to implement quickly.”

He’s got to be kidding.
He’s obviously never been involved in the adoption process and what it takes to sever parental rights. especially for foreigns. There is a body of international law concerning that, to avoid trafficking.
Just try going to Guatemala and adopting a kid!

He cannot be this disconnected from reality. No one could be.

Hewitt was taking a beating last night on his show as he was promoting this. It wasn’t so much the callers as probably email and tweets. It showed in his voice.

I’m listening to him less and less. This adoption program of his is a joke.

Americanize these basically socialist-inculcated kids? Who? The US educational system?

Build a fence? Does he think we’re stupid? We’ve heard all of this before.

He is crapping all over his brand, much the same as Marco Rubio did.

One has to understand that Hewitt is an elite. He went to the best schools, got a law degree from an Ivy League school, worked in DC and is basically a proponent of working within the system as corrupt as it is.

His political philosophy lines up with our about 85% of the time but he is still an elite.

Increasingly, as I listen to him, I find myself muttering like an idiot: blah, blah, blah.

Hugh, boobie, here are several YOU can take into YOUR home immediately. Unless, of course, you'd rather wait until after you purchase that Colt 1911 you've had your eye on for a few years and get that CCW permit and...

Oh wait. I forgot you live in a jurisdiction where private citizens cannot HAVE weapons. You can solve that problem by simply joining your new roomies in MS13. As most of us know, those firearm restrictions don't apply to them.

I used to live in a fantasy world where I drank the magic potion and believed almost everyone was a “conservative” when in reality almost all of them were Republican moderates-liberals-GOPe posing as conservatives to suck me into supporting the 95 percent of Republican elected officials-candidates that are non-conservative.

“Is Hugh Hewitt going liberal on us? What the heck?”

‘Going liberal’? ‘Center-Right’ Hugh has been liberal for a very long time. A liberal GOPe hack but a liberal all the same.

Hugh Hewitt has always been an establishment mouthpiece first and foremost. And the GOP establishment is definitely not conservative. He claims to be on the Right so that he can try to influence conservatives and sell them crap like amnesty and open borders. His pal Michael Medved is even worse.

When he arrived in California with his carpet bag in the 1990s the first thing Hugh did was to oppose Prop 187 and the grassroots conservatives who passed it. Prop 187 was an anti-illegal immigration bill for those who don’t remember.

I have more respect for open liberals, at least they aren’t lying to us about what they are.

Just yesterday Hugh Hewitt was telling one of his guests how much he admires Eric Cantor. Eric Cantor. Can you find a more disgusting GOPe hack?

In the California primary Hewitt supported Neel Kashkari over Tim Donnelly. Tim Donnelly is a tea party favorite whereas Neel Kashkari supports amnesty and gay marriage and he admits to having voted for Obama. There’s a ‘conservative’ candidate for you... at least in Hugh Hewitt’s eyes.

But Hewitt didn’t just support the liberal Neel Kashkari over Donnelly; Hewitt repeatedly denounced Donnelly as being an embarrassment of a candidate whose nomination would be a national disaster for the GOP.

This isn’t the first time that Hewitt supported a liberal Republican candidate for California governor over a conservative. Back when we recalled Gray Davis we had the chance to elect Tom McClintock. McClintock was an experienced California legislator and the real deal as a conservative. What he didn’t have is a big name ID and a lot of money. So guess who Hugh Hewitt supported? Arnold Schwarzenegger, the choice of the GOPe.

So it comes as no surprise to hear yet one more squishy liberal do-gooder idea pop out of Hugh Hewitt’s head. But I have to admit that his advocating mass-adoption of illegal alien kids may take the prize. Open Borders Hugh finds yet another way to convert the USA into the northernmost country of Latin America.

Why would you think that GOPe hosts would not be on Salem Radio? Do you have some incorrect perception that Salem is a right wing Conservative Christian network?

They are a secular radio network. They actually admonish their employees not to spend time praying at their desks, but to "pray on your own time". They make it clear to the employees at their "Christian" stations that they are not a Christian company, but they are secular company with a largely Christian audience.

Hugh Hewitt defines establishment crony republicanism.

Last I heard he was still a member of the Presbyterian Church USA which is the most anti-Israel and pro homosexual denomination in the country.

Bet you dollar to a doughnut he doesn’t have the slightest idea what “Reconquista” means.

Idiots like him believe it’s not real, it’s just something the “right wing haters” have made up.

He’s too ignorant to know what it means and too stupid to find out.

One has to understand that Hewitt is an elite. He went to the best schools, got a law degree from an Ivy League school, worked in DC

"Five years ago, historian Christopher Lasch published The Revolt of the Elites [1995]. It was a book about how our national elite was literally seceding from America. Pointing out the huge and growing gap in income between the elite and the middle class, Lasch argued that a more ominous gap existed in how each perceived America.

The old elite, Lasch wrote, had a sense of obligation to country and community. But the new ruling class, more merit based, brainy and mobile, congregates on the coasts and puts patriotism far down the list in hierarchy of values. Indeed, said Lasch, “It is a question of whether they think of themselves as American at all.”

This is what Anus Flambé Hugh Hewitt is really saying. Allow me to translate. FRiends, in our not too distant future, people who look like him will be placed in petting zoos and that Obama will still be President.
