Todd Blodgett Opinion: Biden’s Buffoonish Border Boondoggle


This news story was published on March 9, 2021.
Advertise on NIT Subscribe to NIT

Todd Blodgett of Clear Lake Iowa is an accomplished writer and political strategist. He has been the most-popular writer in the history of the Globe Gazette, been published in numerous news publications, and has written a book, “Republican Crackhead.”

‘Biden Administration Rushes to accommodate Border surge, with few signs of Plans to Contain it’, is the headline (March 5, 2021) of a page one article published by The Washington Post. When even media which endorsed Joe Biden reports such information, it’s clear that concerns over what many Americans call “Open Borders” are legitimate. While US political stability, national security and the health of US citizens are being jeopardized, the Leftists running our federal government don’t seem to care. Within 48 hours of taking office, President Biden lifted Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency, stopped construction of the border wall and announced plans to end Trump’s MPPs (Migrant Protection Protocols), which required asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico, even if they’re not from Mexico. Since then, law enforcement officials and residents of south Texas report seeing gargantuan gains in illegal aliens entering the USA – which, they claim, are, in some cases, carrying cocaine and other illicit drugs, and include child traffickers, sex offenders, and foreigners with criminal records in their native countries.

This fits right in, with the radical, expensive, pro-perp agenda of Biden, Pelosi, AOC and Maxine Waters.

The number of people trying to cross the US-Mexico border has increased steadily since April, 2020. But under Trump’s strict policies and no-nonsense enforcement of US law, wannabe border-jumpers stood about as much chance of safely making it to, and staying in, America as Hillary Clinton and Al Sharpton would have of lasting 20 seconds at an NRA-sponsored, Mississippi Gun Show. The 2019 success rate of asylum-seekers was about 30 percent. For those in the MPP program, their success rate was under ONE percent, as of May, 2020. Apparently, Biden’s attitude towards these Barbarians at the Gate is: ‘Come on in – make yourselves right at home.’ So, are the autocratic, temperamental, sleazy Joe Biden and Kamala Harris extending to these lawbreakers what amounts to a ‘professional courtesy’? Could be.

The US Border Patrol reports that, on a daily basis, several thousand illegal aliens – some who claim asylum; but, most not – are rushing into America. On March 1, ‘The Voice of America’ (V.O.A.) published an article headlined, ‘Biden Immigration changes raise Hopes, Concerns, on U.S. Border’. But what the VOA calls “concerns” are, to tens of millions of Americans, outright fears.

Yet, here we are, in the midst of the worst pandemic in a century, with our poorest neighborhoods – populated mostly by struggling minorities – being hammered by staggering levels of poverty, violent crime, substandard schools, and general dysfunction, unseen in our history. Before Covid-19, black unemployment was its lowest in 50 years because Trump’s policies kept OUT unskilled, semi-literate vagabonds from Mexico, and from nations to its south. Major US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and New York City, are beset by record levels of homelessness – even among veterans of the US armed forces. We don’t NEED, and can’t AFFORD, more impoverished immigrants, legal or not, from Third-World countries. But that’s exactly what the chicanery of Biden and Harris are forcing upon us.

Donald Trump’s highly effective ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy meant that Mexican troops assisted US Border Patrol agents in returning Mexican, and even non-Mexican, migrants to Mexico – to await their asylum hearing. President Trump basically forced Mexico’s President to station Mexican federales (troops) at the border, to keep asylum-seekers in line, AND, in Mexico. However, Biden cluelessly nixed that pro-US agreement within days of taking office – which is as blatantly inept as it is anti-American.

It’s like the United States is now being governed by a skeevy combo of Don Corleone, Barney Fife, and Beavis and Butt Head. Mayra Flores, a naturalized US citizen originally from Mexico, is married to a US Border Patrol agent. She said the Cartels make major money by smuggling individuals, and even entire groups, across the border and – in the process, endanger migrants trying to cross. “Cameron county and Hidalgo county [Texas] have one of the highest poverty rates in the United States … they don’t have the resources” to accommodate, much less absorb, these new migrants.” No kidding.

On March 1, 2021, Alejandro Mayorkas – Biden’s Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security – told reporters that there was no crisis at the border. Yeah, right. Mayorkas is either dumb, or a liar.

Maybe he’s both.

As recently reported in The Wall Street Journal, in Tijuana, Mexico, thousands of migrants are crossing the pedestrian border, after “the Biden administration let in the first handful who had been forced to wait in Mexico for their asylum claims to be resolved under Trump administration policy. The message received in Tijuana and other Mexican border cities was simpler: Joe Biden is letting people in.” This will prove catastrophic for Americans, and makes a mockery of the Rule of Law and playing fair and square.

Biden’s minions actually had the audacity to try to blame Donald Trump for this sordid, totally avoidable fiasco. But the best defense is a good offense. Then, again, Biden and Kamala Harris are, effectively, prioritizing the needs of illegal aliens over those of Americans who pay their salaries – even with vaccinations for the China virus. Speaking of salaries, President Trump never took one; he ALWAYS gave HIS presidential compensation to charities. But not so slow Joe.

But why should anyone be shocked? After all, this Trump-reversing, anti-USA administration is infested with radical fools – career politicians – who never succeeded in the real world. They actually believe that guys who become gals should be allowed to compete against girls in female athletics, and that US citizens must take in ever more illegals. But under Biden, it’s Americans who are truly being taken.

    Thank you Mr. Blodgett for writing this good article about how stupid Biden is being by letting these illegals in to our borders.

    If he keeps this up, America won’t be America.

    My, my, lot’s of nasty things on here that the Democrats are calling Republicans. Say What makes fun of where Darcey lives. Another one tells Darcey he hopes God will never let her “reproduce” some kids.

    Re elect Biden Harris calls us nasty hillbillies and calls this article a bunch of trash. Retired NIACC slams Mr Blodgett, wants us to think Todd is some kind of nazi racist.

    They call us Republicans the Republi-tards, and Replubi-thugs, Republi-crooks, all kinds of bad things. They say Todd is just a spoiled low life who shoots carney workers, and if we like Trump we are uneducated red necks, ect.

    Maybe some Democrats are nice, but none here.

            But then you would be incapable of picking up on that.

            So you preach about God and then turn around and state “I know Todd knows some dudes to come see you, if you don’t listen then what will happen is on you.”
            That is the reason that you and your ilk are prime candidates for thinning the herd.

        Hey Darcey, you have outed Blodgett before in other posts. How are you still in a group with him? The rules of AA, NA,GA and other ANONYMOUS groups, is that you don’t mention names of others in the group to anyone and you keep blabbing it to the world. You would not be welcome back at that group and that is why I think you are full of it.

          It would be good if Mr. Blodgett would weigh in on this. I wish he would. Maybe he is reluctant to get into it with one of his fans, and take her to task over this inappropriate disclosure?

          If you are reading this, Darcey, please do not mention the name of any NA members. This could discourage people from joining and getting the help they need. Thank you.

            What makes you think Blodgett even bothers to read these comments? All he cares about is putting out these ridiculous, racist rants to spread hate.

            All while he claims to be on the side of God.

            If you believe he gives a damn about what anybody thinks, you are mistaken. It’s like he figures if he hurls enough s**t up against the wall, some of it is bound to stick.

            Todd baits people, fans and opponents alike, into pecking away at their keyboards. Just as you were provoked to post your comment, his bigoted insanity motivates rednecks to type away, in droves, and cheer him on. It also provokes decent readers, who are rightfully outraged that Toddy boy is given such forums to spew ignorance, neo-fascism, and prejudicial nonsense.

        2.The cages that Obama-Biden built are at record capacity, as of March 1, 2021. I guess that’s Trumps fault.(LOL) Illegal crossings were down in the few hundred a day range, during the Trump administration, now, under Biden and his catch and let the COVID positive illegal go free in the US policy, it is around 6000 a day.

          -$141 billion to veterans, restaurants, renters and homeowners, FEMA relief
          That adds up to pretty close to the entire package. All is needed. Trickle up economics does work. Trickle down, doesn’t. Now the Republicans want to do away with the estate tax which benefits only those with estates over 20 million. Not many of those people in North Iowa but the minions will yell “Yes! If it’s good for them, it has to be good for us” Unfortunately, it isn’t.

    When will there be a article on the thugs Blodgett has sicked on different people he don’t like that use to live here in Mason.

    Our nephew and his wife they are still to scared to come back here even for a visit after the beat down they got from some skin heads Blodgett paid they come down from the iron range about four years ago.

    Yes they were selling drugs that is wrong but druggys bought from them would of got it one way or the other from any dealer no matter who. Blodgett had no right have them goons stomp him even worse the cops well they give him a pass since Blodgett does what the law won’t let them.

    This is wrong people.

      You admitted your nephew sold illegal drugs and was able to evade the law. So now you are upset because when the police couldn’t deal with them, Blodgett did.

      I am for anybody and anything that gets drug dealers out of Mason City, regardless of how they do it.

      Good for Todd, I hope he continues to rid north Iowa of drug pushers. Drugs are pure evil.

        We don’t know Mr. Blodgett but some friends of ours do, and they think Todd is like that dangerous army man Jack Nicholson played in A Few Good Men.

        Remember that? He plays a crazy colonel that orders a code red on this enlisted guy he disliked. He was proud of it and at the end of the movie, he says, people like you, you need me.

          Tell that to the young man who was earning money for his tuition at ISU, who worked for a carnival. If I recall, a couple years ago, Blodgett falsely accused him of stealing his wallet at the Willow Run. Then the spoiled Republitard pulled out a gun and aimed it right at the poor guy’s face.

          And then it turned out, the accused was innocent. But nothing happened to Toddy Boy, because of his family’s connections and big bucks.

          And you say Blodgett should get a medal.

            Your wrong on almost everything you say. Todd was robbed at a bar in Clear Lake, not @ the Willow. The thief was no college student, he was a small time hood had just got sprung from lockup when he stole from Todd.

            Blodgett did pull his gun on the thief, it was his right, to protect his property. Good on Todd.

            The reason nothing happen to him is, he did nothing wrong you fool. The cops came, the carney was charged and found guilty and got sent back to the joint on count he robbed Blodgett. This whole thing did not have nothing to do with Todd’s contacts or money or anything of that sort.

          Years ago, my now deceased wife and I saw a movie at the old Park 70 theater called The Star Chamber. It was about a small group of right wingers who took the law into their own hands.

          They would review court cases, and if defendants got off on a technicality, or were not sufficiently punished (to their thinking), they paid some hit men to do vigilante justice. The bad guys all were severely roughed up and run out of the city, and those who wouldn’t leave, or tried to fight back, were shot dead.

          I wonder if Mr. Blodgett saw The Star Chamber?

      The Democrats don’t give a damn about any of that. What they care about is gaining power, and keeping power. By letting in all these “undocumented Democrats”, the illegals will vote Democrat, they just about guarantee that they remain in power.

      H.R.1 that the House of Representatives passed has a provision that forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. If you go to a DMV or apply for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attend a public college you will be automatically registered.

      Noncitizens are supposed to identify themselves and opt out, but there are no penalties if they don’t.

      H.R.1 also bans state voter ID requirements. Anyone can show up and vote on election day, they don’t have to be registered, just have to sign a paper that states they are a legal voter(pole sitters are not allowed to check).

            Please, whoever you are, it only harms our cause to denigrate Mr. Blodgett with such insults. Like it or not, he writes very effectively, is well educated and highly intelligent.

            I abhor his politics, as do you. I also know that his personal associates include some violent, shady individuals whose paths I hope to never cross. I wouldn’t want my granddaughter to marry a man with the views and colleagues of Todd Blodgett.

            But give the devil his due. Not unlike T Rump, Blodgett has a rather dedicated following, and not only on N.I.T. He plays to them and their prejudices, which are his prejudices.

            When you insult him with such childish remarks, you only make yourself look bad, and widen the appeal of the abhorrent opinions of Neanderthals like Mr. Blodgett.

    @ ‘Reed’ – you are correct: whatever else Mr. Blodgett may be, he’s not cowardly, as the blogger to which you directed your response, below, alleged. Todd puts his archaic views out there, for all to see, and argue about. He seems to get a kick out of provoking readers.

    I vehemently disagree with Blodgett’s politics, and my law partner refuses to even take part in discussions in which his columns (or, even his name) are mentioned. Some members of the Central Committee (Democratic, of course) in Cerro Gordo county consider “Toddy boy” to be a fascist-inclined gun nut, and maybe they are right.

    It is unfortunate that whenever this site, or the Globe-Gazette, or the Des Moines Register, runs a Blodgett Op-ed rant, it pulls in all of these racists and bigoted Iowans.

    But I am not shocked, because Trump handily won Iowa not once, but twice. This border issue could be what brings Trump back in 2024. If that happens, it will be curtains for America.

And when Joe is either impeached or simply steps down due to dementia it will only get worse under Harris. Her own state did not even support her nomination and she will be the next president!!.
    Just imagine if this were Trump pulling the crap Biden is doing, the press would be all over it along with major protests and fighting.
    What amazes me is that most of the left journalists deep down knows this is incredibly wrong what is happening at the borders. Most of the children they talk about at the border are sadly orphans and used by bad people. Drug dealers love what is going on at the border, but of course Biden is sympathetic due to his son.

      Insurrection definition, according to Merriam-Webster, is – an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an established government.

      acts of domestic terrorism are those which: “(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended – (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.”

      Put these together. ALL the domestic terrorists that rioted, which if you can read and understand, means they were insurrectionists, this last summer in many cities. So, are you going to call them traitorous too?
      Oh yeah, they were instigated by the Democratic policies of victim identity, racial identity, perceived class identity.
      Democrats try to make everybody but whites a victim, then, they can pretend to care long enough to get the vote.
      Obama set race relations back AT LEAST 20 years with his race baiting and victim hood Bullshit.
      Then there is the perceived class identity, “Everybody should be the same.” You want the lazy piece of human fecal material that wants to sit home, smoking legalized weed, playing video games all day to get paid the same amount for dragging his brain dead ass down to the pee yellow arches to burn your fries, as the guy that is repairing your car.

            And..what about Trump??..you know very well why Biden hasn’t given a SOTU address..he is barely capable of stringing two sentences together. Watch Joe stammer and squint in his televised speech tonight.

            You don’t comprehend very well, do you? The reason President Biden hasn’t given a SOTU is because Presidents don’t give a SOTU during their first year. Get with it.

    I’m frequently no fan of Mr. Blodgett’s politics, but this column succinctly summarizes what is going on at the border.

    Whether Biden understands it or not, if he won’t take proper action and get this disaster under control, he will have set the state for a Trump comeback.

    And it will not even be close.

      God didn’t have anything to do with this article. The NIT organization is anti Christian. He allows articles Mr Blodgett writes because he knows a lot of people don’t like Mr. Blodgett and that draws a lot of comments, which in turn brings in $$$$$$. If anyone else would have written this article it wouldn’t have been posted on this site.

    Shame on Biden, he will ruin our country. Anybody who voted for them and still for him should hang their head in awful shame.

    I sure miss the real president, we are praying he gets back in next time. If Trump don’t get back in why America will be over.

    The Leftstream media and the indoctrinated march to whatever tune their Leftist political leaders play. In particular, they desire a single ruling party—the Democrats, without objection, opposition, or dissent.

    Their hatred for Trump exceeded what was best for our country. The family of Biden should be ashamed of themselves as well as those other politicians or the swamp that exist in Washington.

    What are you talking about, all people with a brain and common sense saw this coming and voted for Trump. Everyone else voted for this disaster.

    I guess pelosi and cohorts are happy that they got a puppet elected so they can dictate to him what to do. Kamala must be over eager to take over as president.

    These are dark days for our nation. They are exhausting, terrifying, maddening, and confusing. We’ve watched Democrats and radical Marxists demean and disenfranchise tens of millions of voters. We’ve listened to their words about what is to come.
