Ortega witnessed gruesome acts of violence along the San Diego/Tijuana border. "Witnessing murders along the border fence that you couldn't do anything about. Sometimes several a night. Women and children being raped where you couldn't get to them and rescue them. That went on for decades," said Ortega. In 1986, San Diego border agents reached a breaking point apprehending 629,000 people, in just one year. In 1989, Ortega witnessed the construction on a 14 mile border fence began to help secure the heavily trafficked border between Tijuana And San Diego. Ortego credited the fencing for curbing the kind of violence he witnessed. "What we did is we built this 14-mile section of fence, and it basically stopped all of that activity." Ortega told KHQ.This shouldn't be a surprise. Everyone knows that houses need walls and fences, and humans need skin. Life without borders is death. Soros has persuaded our corporate and governmental and "religious" leaders that borders are bad, which means specifically and explicitly that death is good for everyone except the Insatiables. So a careful Bravo to the Cowles bunch, who had been a source of corruption in earlier decades. The other two TV stations are pure Soros. I'm not inclined to blame KREM; they're run by the Gannett chain and they're clearly short on money. Their better employees leave for bigger markets quickly, and the weather dude has to cover sports. They don't have enough resources to write and edit their own stuff, so they just use what the network provides. I can blame KXLY solidly. They're independent and solvent, and they have been taking Satan's side consistently and PROUDLY for at least a year. When their ABC Fake News bosses spew volcanic Tourette on normal people, emitting words that would normally require the cutoff switch, KXLY laughs and cheers demonically. More evil! Yes! Yes! Yes! We love evil! We hate life! Along the same lines: The Weather Bureau's twitter feed is still holding to its Gaia-free diet. No Gaian ratshit since Jan 19, just valuable and important and interesting INFORMATION. Thanks!
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
