Thursday: Below the Fold

The case for impeaching Mayorkas, UN rapist walks free, Dr. Jill gets double COVID, and more.


  • Former DHS secretary makes case for impeaching Mayorkas: “Your job is to enforce the laws as Congress has written,” stated former Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf in his criticism of current DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Wolf, who served as DHS chief under Donald Trump, argued that lawmakers “have a very strong case” for impeaching Mayorkas over his intentional mismanagement of the agency, specifically regarding maintaining border security and stopping illegal immigration. Wolf pointed to Mayorkas’s deliberate ignoring of the law when he said to migrants, “if you come across the border illegally, that alone is not a basis for removal.” Wolf observed, “[Mayorkas] basically just said breaking a federal law means you’re not going to be removed, even though [the law] says you should be removed.” Wolf noted that Mayorkas’s intentional refusal to secure the border has most benefited the drug cartels, who “have more money, more territory, and more power than they have ever had in the history of cartels.” He then pointed to the opioid epidemic now claiming the lives of more than 100,000 Americans via overdose deaths, estimating that “90% of that is coming across the southern border.” Instead, Mayorkas calls white nationalism a greater threat to America. If Republicans retake Congress, Mayorkas should be one of the first heads on the proverbial chopping block.

  • Accused UN rapist walks free thanks to “diplomatic immunity”: Charles Dickens Imene Oliha, a 46-year-old United Nations diplomat from South Sudan, was immediately released by the New York City Police Department following his being arrested on rape allegations. Why? Investigators concluded he has diplomatic immunity status. The victim, who lives in the same building as Oliha in Upper Manhattan, alleges that he followed her to her apartment after she told him not to, and forced himself inside where he proceeded to sexually assault her. The attack raises the issue of “diplomatic immunity,” which has long been recognized by the U.S. government, but has also seen repeated challenges as to just how much immunity it grants. The notion that it confers absolute and unlimited immunity against legal repercussions for breaking U.S. law should never be the case, and yet the limits of that diplomatic immunity are is still unclear. In a case as serious as this, Oliha should not be allowed to use diplomatic immunity as a means of getting away with committing a crime. It smacks of two-tiered justice.

  • Dr. Jill gets double COVID: Days after the twice vaccinated and double boosted Jill Biden was cleared from a COVID infection she first tested positive for on August 15, the first lady once again tested positive in what is being termed a “rebound” case. She is currently staying isolated in the Bidens’ Delaware home, and is said to not be experiencing any symptoms. At 71 years old, she is in the demographic group most endangered by the virus that originated in Wuhan, China. Joe Biden himself recently recovered from a rebound COVID infection. The great irony here is that it demonstrates that the COVID vaccine does not work like a traditional vaccine in that it does not prevent infection. At best, it lessens the severity of the infection, as appears to have been the case with the Bidens. It further highlights that Biden’s one-size-fits-all vaccine mandate was never really intended to stop COVID as much as it was an opportunity to use COVID as an excuse for a federal government power-grab. If even the vaccinated get the virus, then why demonize those who refuse? The answer is because it was all about politics.

  • On this date last year — Biden’s surrender and retreat from Afghanistan: We are reposting, in chronological order, analysis of events a year ago related to the most disgraceful military exfil in American history — Biden’s deadly surrender and retreat from Afghanistan. This day last year, Mark Alexander covered: Taliban Thugs Mock Iwo Jima Marines. Adding insult to Biden’s injury… On this day last year, Mark Alexander also covered: Joe Biden IS the ‘Red Flag’. The problem was not Biden’s plan; it was, and remains, Biden the man.
