WATCH: House Democrat Chair Waxes Imbecilic, Blames Biden Border Surge on 'Climate Change'

Have you ever sat down and tried to list all things the Democrats have blamed on “climate change“? Me neither, but if we did, what an exhaustive list it would be. Welp, House Democrat Chair Pete Aguilar (DUH-Calif.) just added another ridiculous occurrence to the list: the Biden Border Crisis™.


More specifically, the coming Mother of All Border Surges, with Title 42 set to expire on Wednesday.

Before we get to Aguilar’s idiocy, let’s catch up a bit.

As my colleague Bob Hoge reported on Sunday, U.S. officials are expecting at least 10,000 illegal aliens already waiting in Mexico to immediately attempt to cross the Southern Border the moment Title 42 expires.

In anticipation, Joe Biden — who started and continues this crisis — approved sending 1,500 active-duty troops to serve “in mostly administrative roles and transport roles, to free up law enforcement and Border Patrol,” according to two senior U.S. officials familiar with the deliberations.

“Admission by action,” I termed it, meaning Biden and the Democrats can continue lying about the “secure” southern border until the proverbial cows come home, but if the border is indeed secure, why the need to send active-duty troops? (Rhetorical question.)

Anyway, let’s now deal with Pete Aguilar and his foolishness.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” — of course — the House Democrat Chair claimed, with a straight face, that “climate change” is the real culprit here.

We need an orderly process — I agree with you, Joe, that’s absolutely something that we need to do — what House Democrats want to also make sure we focus on are these root causes of migration.

You know, people are fleeing difficult and dangerous conditions; they’re fleeing economic issues; they’re fleeing because of climate change, and they aren’t able to farm the land that they used to farm. and—


Lo and behold, Joe Scarborough actually stopped Aguilar, mid-lie:

I understand that, congressman, but we’ve been saying 3 or 4, 5, 10, 15 years. There is a massive crisis at the Southern Border, right now. I’m not telling you anything you don’t know, but it’s only getting worse.

Wow. Who was that guy, and what did he do with Joe Scarborough?

And the verdict on the congressman’s ridiculous excuse? Demonstrably stupid. Aguilar would have us believe that all of a sudden, relatively speaking, “climate change” has swooped in and forced tens of thousands of Mexicans, Hondurans, Ecuadorians, Colombians, — the list goes on —to surge the U.S. border as if their very lives depended on illegally “invading” the United States. That is an unadulterated crock of crap.

The truth is, Democrats don’t give a damn if we believe their silly lies or not, and I have no doubt that they know we don’t. They only care about how rank-and-file, low-information Democrat voters vote, and to that end, they’ll lie their asses off like lying’s going out of style.

Moreover, even if half of Aguilar’s excuses were true, why is it the responsibility of the United States and its people to welcome untold numbers of illegals, with open arms? Spoiler: It’s not and it never will be.


The other “truth be told”? Biden and the Democrat Party are only concerned — or feign concern — about the intentional border crisis because an ever-increasing number of Americans are saying enough is enough, and Democrat politicians know full well that too much enough is enough eventually shows up in the ballot box for the other party.

Never forget: Virtually everything Democrat politicians say, do, support, or oppose can be connected to the ballot box with no more than two dots.
