Texas Congressman Chip Roy wants to set the record straight on what’s taking place at the Southern border.
Since Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez caused a huge media uproar about the conditions of migrants at detention centers at the border, immigration quickly came back to the spotlight.
However, Congressman Roy has a different take on the situation.
In a tweet, Roy said “I’ve been to the border multiple times.”
And unlike AOC, he’s isn’t putting on “a show for the media.”

Roy has made several visits to the border, and based on his experience, he does not share the view that the detention centers are the second coming of Nazi concentration camps.
But he does understand the bigger picture—the U.S. government is failing to secure the border.
Since he was elected in 2018, Roy has been one of the fiercest proponents of border security in Congress.
He recognizes what’s going on at the border, especially the influx of criminal elements such as drug cartels.
In fact, BLP reported on Roy’s efforts to designate drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations.
He believes such organizations should be designated as FTOs “because of their particularly violent actions and intentional strategies to affect the political system. These cartels push for an anarchic form of government which allows them to skirt laws and push their terrorist model without any legal ramifications.”
These specific factions were chosen “because of their particularly violent actions and intentional strategies to affect the political system. These cartels push for an anarchic form of government which allows them to skirt laws and push their terrorist model without any legal ramifications.”
Roy singles out AOC for her recent demagoguery on the issue.
Indeed, there is a crisis at the border, but it’s for different reasons.
It has nothing to do with “Holocaust” like treatment of refugees but rather a broken immigration system that encourages mass migration from the Third World while not providing adequate protection from the very real threats south of the border.
But this debate goes beyond border crossings. The mass migration to citizenship pipeline presents a legitimate threat to U.S. political and social institutions. Europe is already overrun with ethnic ghettoes thanks to its mass migration policies, which has sparked a populist backlash across the continent.
The U.S. could suffer a similar fate given Third World migrants’ tendency of bloc voting for leftist parties.
For that reason, immigration is the number #1 issue heading into election season.
Roy should be commended for his efforts to bring some sanity into the immigration discussion.
The time for emotional pandering is over.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
