The Migrant Caravan Manipulation Continues

Last spring, when the "Migrant Caravan" to the US/Mexico border was going on, I did a piece talking about how we're all being manipulated by the media on this.  Since there's another caravan going on, I tried to determine if the same forces are in play and the same game is being played.

Short answer: Yeah.  You bet.

Representative Matt Gaetz from the NW part of Florida posted this video to Twitter, showing a couple of guys going through the caravan crowd handing out money.

It should be obvious, right?  Here we have thousands of people migrating a long distance and leaving whatever home and life they had.  They have to eat.  They have to "function".  The military saying that "an army marches on its stomach" doesn't just apply to armies.  Furthermore, take a look at he people in this freeze frame: do they look poorly dressed?  Do they look like destitute refugees?  Not to me.  To me, they look fairly well dressed and even fairly affluent. 

How much money are we talking about?  Talk show host and Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham is being widely quoted for this tweet.
Who is funding the migrant “caravan”? Each migrant’s passage can cost as much as $7K each. Per capita income Honduras is $2.3 K.
A rough number for the cost of moving this caravan becomes trivial with this estimate.  Given I've heard estimates of 4000 in the crowd, that says it's a $28 Million dollar effort to rush the US border.

At the American Thinker, Daniel John Sobieski writes the funding comes from the Honduran government and Non-Governmental Organizations funded by George Soros.
It is doubtful that such sums came from the kiddies' college funds.  Evidence of Soros funding of an earlier "spontaneous" migration have been found among the tentacles of support that flow from his Open Society group coffers
The article linked, though, is from last May, and mentions the groups I talked about back then.   The organization taking the lead is “Pueblo Sin Fronteras”.  The name translates as "people without borders", but a more poetic translation might be Open Society, the name of one of Soros' pet organizations.  "A World Without Borders".
“The caravan is organized by a group called Pueblo Sin Fronteras, but the effort is supported by the coalition CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, which includes Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLIN), the American Immigration Council (AIC), the Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services (RICELS) and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) – thus the acronym CARA,” WND reported. “At least three of the four groups are funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.”
It looks like this story is a duplicate of the last "caravan of central American refugees" story from last spring: much more "AstroTurf" than "grass roots".  By the way: did you happen to notice that Judicial Watch says there's 3.5 million more registered voters than living adults in the US?  Funny, that.


  1. "Those People" (the ones funding it) are really trying to bring down the United States.

    1. Perhaps the house of saud would be interested in making some of their problems "go away", by making some of our problems "go away"? Just spit-ballin' here...

    2. I guess they'd have to airlift all those people over there and fit them into the consulate. When you think of how many suitcases they'd need, maybe they could get a good quantity discount.

  2. Putting the military on the border to repel the hoard makes sense. They want to overwhelm the system and as DRJIM points out, the effort is being funded by enemies of the United States. Therefore, the corrupt, elite, smug media applauds those caravans.

  3. Sure is interesting how "Law Enforcement" and the "Legal" system refuse to charge Soros under RICO.

    One of many reasons I curse every one of them every day, and pray to God to send them all to hell as soon as possible.

  4. If you feed pigeons, and more pigeons appear, what is actually the root cause? Not the pigeons. LEO and Legal employees merely do what you majority of voters tell them to do. LEO would be laid off if you stopped paying their salaries. A million of you could decide as a group today on social media to stop paying their salaries. Nothing would happen, same as nothing happened after additional gun registration in Connecticut and California was disobeyed.

    Government is an addiction as well as a religion.

    1. Bullshit. Your "Law Enforcement" and the God damned "Legal" system do WHATEVER they are told to do by their Masters. And those Masters don't give a damn about what Mere Citizens want. Pig hunting season will fix that.

    2. Your "Law Enforcement" and the God damned "Legal" system do WHATEVER they are told to do by their Masters.

      Correct, and their masters are the people who pay their salaries, the taxpayers. If the taxpayers didn't hire them, they wouldn't be employed in that capacity. Government produces no food, gasoline, or ammunition. Government cannot operate without continuous, voluntary payments from much of the population. As we saw with the attempts at additional gun registration in Connecticut in 2014 and California in 2018, your buddies as a group can selectively stop obeying any day they choose, with no consequences. To date you haven't decided to stop paying LEO salaries. The question which remains is, which taxpayers are accessories, and which are accomplices?

  5. The ugly truth of the matter is we could put a HUGE dent in the commie lefts plans and efforts to destroy the US and capitalism if we could arrange for George Soros, his son and his closest associates to have a "tragic accident".

  6. Cui Bono? This is an attack on the U.S. If this succeeds it could lead to tens of millions of invaders/immigrants/refugees every year and within a couplke of years a full economic collapse of the U.S. Who benefits? The left is associated with communists and the left is pushing this effort along with other efforts equally harmful to the U.S. It seems likely that Both Russia and China are involved in this conspiracy to destroy the U.S. I believe that the left thinks they will benefit from this and short term they will but I suspect that once the U.S. falls it will be Russia and China who benefit.
