Open borders, in fact no borders no passports
no lines on maps via no such governments thus
no "laws" and no enforcement, are great, the best
way, and were the case before you got scammed
by Govt into thinking "passports" are necessary
thereby giving up all your rights to travel the Earth
without permission, you retarded fools.

However open does not and cannot work when
only one of the two directions is open... the
open one gets raped as the world floods in.
Further, when you can't escape, trapped
behind your own stupid wall, you're fucked.
And they take your guns to make revolt harder.
Which instead of leaving, is what people should
generally do, else toxic idea of governments
are left to exist.
"We have no operational control, no legal control, no law enforcement
control of our border,"

People do not want Dems weird 1619 CRT divisive outrage shit...

Socialists love to stack and pack and cheat their way into permanent power...

$4M, not including all-in's, wasted...
Twenty-two White House employees make the maximum yearly salary of $180k.

Kamala Harris Staffers Are Leaking -- And Her Office Is A 'Dysfunctional' Mess

Vice President Kamala Harris' office is a toxic, 'abusive' environment
where "people are thrown under the bus from the very top,' according
to 22 current and former staffers, administration officials and
associates of Harris and President Biden.

In a Politico exposé reminiscent of a Feb. 2019 New York Times in
which over fifty current and former staffers decried her dysfunctional
campaign (h/t @mattdizwhitlock), Harris and her Chief of Staff, Tina
Flournoy, are slammed for running an office with "low morale, porous
lines of communication and diminished trust among aides and senior
Vice President Kamala Harris, Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy

"It all starts at the top," said one administration official, speaking
on condition of anonymity (as they all did).

"People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short
fuses and it’s an abusive environment," said another person with
direct knowledge of Harris' office. "It’s not a healthy environment
and people often feel mistreated. It’s not a place where people feel
supported but a place where people feel treated like shit."

As Politico notes, "The dysfunction in the VP’s ranks threatens to
complicate the White House’s carefully crafted image as a place
staffed by a close-knit group of professionals working in concert to
advance the president’s agenda. It’s pronounced enough that members of
the president’s own team have taken notice and are concerned about the
way Harris’ staffers are treated."

Harris spokeswoman Symone Sanders - a racist who mocked a white Trump
supporter after he was beaten by a group of black men - and was passed
over for Biden's press secretary, pushed back against the nearly
two-dozen accounts of dysfunction, saying Flournoy has an "open door
policy," and that "Black women like me would not have the opportunity
to work in politics without Tina."

Sanders called the anonymous sources "cowards."

"We are not making rainbows and bunnies all day. What I hear is that
people have hard jobs and I’m like ‘welcome to the club,'" Sanders
continued. "We have created a culture where people, if there is
anything anyone would like to raise, there are avenues for them to do
so. Whoever has something they would like to raise, they should raise
it directly."

Harris and Flournoy's defenders are pulling the race card - saying
that "Black women in particular—are subjected to standards that men
often don’t have to clear. A tough and demanding office environment
may be seen as a virtue for one and a sign of disorder and lack of
leadership acumen for another."

Staffers looking for an exit.

According to the report, some of Harris' aides are looking for other
employment opportunities, while others have left already. In recent
days, two top advance staffers, Karly Satkowiak and Gabrielle
DeFranceschi, left the 'dysfunctional' office. And while Harris' team
said the departures were 'long-planned', two people familiar with the
departures call bullshit.

    For DeFranceschi, the deputy director of advance, the departure
came down to a “difference in opinion on how things should run,”
according to another person familiar with the matter, who said that
Harris’ office is run “very different” from the Obama operation, where
DeFranceschi previously worked. “If you have an opinion about how
things should run and it’s not listened to, that can be frustrating.”

    DeFranceschi did not respond to a request for comment.

    A third Harris aide who worked on her digital team, Rajan Kaur,
left the staff after opting not to relocate to Washington from

    Anita Dunn, a senior adviser to the president, defended Flournoy
as well as the decision to keep news of the border trip contained
among a small group of people, saying Harris’ office didn’t want it to
leak or “turn it into a spectacle.”

    “It was closely held and there may be people whose feelings were a
little hurt on her staff that they weren't brought into the
discussion,” Dunn said. “But any suggestion that it was mishandled or
kept a secret from people who needed to know about the arrangements or
needed to know about it is absolutely not true.”

    Asked if she was aware of the complaints about the VP’s office,
Dunn replied that it was “not anywhere near what you are describing.”

Flournoy, a veteran of the Clinton White House and Al Gore's 2000
campaign, is part of an 'informal group of Black women who’ve worked
together for decades in Democratic politics, which includes Donna
Brazile, Minyon Moore, Leah Daughtry and Yolanda Caraway,' according
to the report.

"Look, [Tina’s] strong, she's intelligent, she's driven, and she
expects strong, intelligent, driven people around her," said Daughtry,
adding "But some people may find strong, driven, smart people
intimidating, but I think that’s more projection than reality because
that’s just not Tina's intent or style. And nothing in her experience
would lead you to think that she’s an intimidating person."

So the staffers are the problem? Hilarious.

Politico paints a different picture - having developed a reputation
for being Kamala's gatekeeper, often refusing to delegate while
second-guessing others in Harris' office.

Apparently, she did the same thing as Bill Clinton's post-presidential
chief of staff.

"People who Clinton knew for decades all of a sudden couldn’t get
through to him because Tina choked off contact," one of the people
said. "Because Clinton didn’t use email," just his blackberry, "she
was able to keep many FOBs [friends of Bill] out."

Morale is "rough," and in many ways 'similar to the failed
presidential campaign and her Senate office,' according to a former
Senate aide who speaks with Harris' staffers.
