Away From Prying Eyes

 Like many people, I've been watching the unfolding crisis on our border with horror and disgust.  The Biden administration is using these people as pawns in an ugly game, and while I feel sorry for the human cost of this debacle, I am aghast at the way the administration is handling the crisis. The lack of transparency is appalling, and the mixed messaging is obvious.

Now, the administration is using military bases to house the migrants.  Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Fort Bliss, and now Camp Roberts, a National Guard base in California.  Military bases require ID to enter the base, as any service member of veteran knows.  Access is strictly controlled.

I don't know what the end-game is here, and I suspect that we won't know for several years, maybe many decades.  I do know that these people, who leave whatever they have behind, and start moving north, want something.  Presumably a better life, and I sincerely wish that they find it.

The Biden/Harris administration can couch this as a humanitarian move, to use the available space on military bases to process the human wave they are faced with, but it seems to me that they want to use the controlled access to move the these unfortunates away from the prying eyes of the press, the public and our elected officials.

This administration is depicable.

I'm thinking Joe read a book on how to ruin America in only 90 days . It was probably written by his mentor Barack .

I think they also want to sabotage military readiness as well. The rest of the world and the media believes WWIII, due to the lack of respect for the US by Russia and China, is imminent, maybe in a month or less. Our media and the appointed administration can only talk about climate change as the major secuitiy problem along with chinese flu.

It is also possible to move them by air without being readily observed. We know only of the bases to which they are being taken initially.

The upside is that the Mainstream Media arose from the dead and are not quite the pet rocks they were through the election cycle.

It isn't much of an upside but it might be something to work with.
