The College Fix reported on a recent poll it conducted on attitudes towards Christmas.

Although it’s pretty well-established that political correctness is the order of the day on college campuses across America, this pc mind virus has not fully taken over people’s beliefs regarding Christmas.

According to its recent poll, the College Fix found that the vast majority of university students did not find it offensive to wish “Merry Christmas” to a stranger.

88 percent responded in the negative. 4 percent responded in the affirmative. 8 percent declared that they were not sure.

Similar results were found in 2016 when a national poll surveyed 1,224 registered voters and found that only 3 percent of respondents were offended by “Merry Christmas.”

An online survey and analytics company the College Pulse conducted this survey exclusively for The College Fix.

The Fix surveyed about 1,000 students, which included 294 Democrat students, 531 Independents, and 171 college Republicans. Of those questioned, 8 percent of Democrat students responded that it’s offensive to wish someone a Merry Christmas and 3 percent of independent students held the same belief. On the other hand, only 1 percent of Republican students said this statement was offensive.

Despite how dominant the Left is on college campuses, there are still people out there who have some degree of sanity regarding the Christmas season.

Good news like this is always welcome right before Christmas.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
