A Country Divided: Democrats and Republicans Split on How the Federal Government is Handling the Crisis

Published

It’s no secret that the Wuhan Virus has had a disproportionate impact on certain parts of the country, while other parts have largely remained unaffected.

A recent Yahoo News report recognized that, in which it noted that “Urban areas, such as New York City, have been harder hit than rural locales and that difference in impacts follows some of the deep partisan political splits in the country.”

There is a clear divide between Democrats and Republicans on the issue of the Wuhan Virus.

Interestingly, the Yahoo piece noted that “About 77 percent of those confirmed cases were in the 490 counties that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. And the overwhelming majority of those Clinton counties, 81 percent, had at least one case.”

On the other hand, “there were more than 2,600 counties that voted for President Trump in 2016, but they hold only 19 percent of the cases. On the whole, only 50 percent of those Trump counties have a single case.”

Particularly revealing are the differing opinions on how members of both parties believe the government should be handling the Wuhan Virus:

More than 65 percent of Democrats believe the federal government is not doing enough to protect life in the outbreak, while only 24 percent of Republicans believe that. And even on the economy, a major concern of the White House, 52 percent of Democrats think the federal government has done too little to blunt the impacts of the coronavirus, while only 40 percent of Republicans believe that.

There is clear polarization in America.

The Wuhan Virus split we see here is similar to the divisions on policy questions such as gun rights and abortion.

As American becomes more politicized on cultural issues, this partisan gulf will only widen.

This does not bode well for American political stability in the long-term.

WTF: Border Wall Construction Crew is Busted for Smuggling from Mexico in Texas

Published

on

According to a report form Breitbart News, Border Patrol agents tasked with patrolling the Rio Grande City Station spotted a pickup truck close to Rio Grande in Fronton on July 20, 2020.

The agents witnessed the vehicle parking close to a new wall construction site. A number of individuals were spotted putting items onto the back of the truck and then driving off toward Highway 83.

Then, the vehicle turned east and started heading toward Roma, Texas. The agents eventually carried out a traffic stop on a yellow and black Ford F-250.

The suspect did not comply with the stop and started fleeing on foot south on Lincoln Avenue and headed towards the border. Jaeson Jones of Breitbart noted that this “common tactic is known as a ‘bailout.’”

Agents saw the driver dive right into the Rio Grande and swim his way back into Mexico. Focusing their attention back at the F-250, agents arrested five people who were seen loading the truck. Law enforcement sources reported that these individuals were in the U.S. illegally.

The vehicle was allegedly registered to CMF Leasing in Fort Worth, Texas. There were decals on the truck that promoted Southwest Valley Constructors (SWVC), a firm that is currently contracted to build a border wall system.

On top of that, the investigation revealed that the driver was identified as a resident of Roma who was by employed SWVC, according to Border Patrol agents account of the incident.

Law enforcement sources informed Breitbart Texas that the driver has a prior history of smuggling activity.

On May 28, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to award a contract to construct about three miles of new bollard wall system on federally lands situated within the Rio Grande Valley Sector.

Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. received a contract for $42,860,000. In addition, Kiewit has an office located at the same address in Fort Worth where the F-250 is registered at.

The road to securing America’s border will not be easy.

America is dealing with a failed state in Mexico, so there will be plenty of bad actors looking to exploit America’s flawed border policies and undermine its sovereignty.

Thankfully, the U.S. has a presidential administration that is quickly working to tackle border security.
