‘Indivisible with John Stubbins’: Ep. 32 – Economic Challenges and Border Security in Focus: Insights from Sid Miller and Joe Kent

Published

on

In a recent episode of “Indivisible with John Stubbins,” listeners were treated to a candid conversation featuring Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller and congressional candidate Joe Kent from Washington State’s District 3. The conservative talk show host delved into pressing issues affecting these states and the nation, focusing on economic challenges and border security.

Economic Struggles in Washington State

Joe Kent, a candidate for Congress in Washington State, painted a grim picture of the economic situation there. He highlighted how inflation is hitting hard, leaving many working-class families struggling to make ends meet. Rising gas and grocery prices are causing a significant strain on households, with some losing an entire month’s wages annually due to inflation.

Kent underscored that his state’s government, led by Governor Jay Inslee, has exacerbated the situation by imposing additional gas taxes, driving the cost per gallon over $5. The Washington State Democrats’ fiscal policies have added to the problem, with reckless spending contributing to skyrocketing inflation rates.

On the bright side, Kent expressed hope in the realignment of politics occurring in his state, where even some Democrats realize that their party’s current direction does not align with the principles of traditional liberalism.
Border Crisis Impacting Washington

Although Washington State may seem far removed from the southern border, Joe Kent explained that the border crisis has far-reaching consequences. His district shares a border with Oregon, another sanctuary state, and he noted that illegal immigrants often travel up the I-5 corridor to reach West Coast sanctuary cities. This influx has led to an uptick in violent crime and property theft.

Even more concerning is the surge in fentanyl overdoses in Washington, making the state the leader in these tragic incidents. Kent described these overdoses as “fentanyl assassinations” and linked them to the open southern border and Oregon and Washington’s sanctuary status.

The I-5 Bridge Dilemma

The I-5 bridge connecting Oregon and Washington has long been a point of contention. Joe Kent highlighted a proposal for a massive light rail project that would run from Portland, Oregon, into Washington State. This project has faced rejection from Washington State residents on three occasions but is being pushed by radicals in Portland.

Marie Perez, Kent’s opponent in the upcoming congressional race, has a business in Portland, which raises concerns about her allegiances in advocating for this project. Kent emphasized the need for federal funds to fix and expand the bridge while resisting the idea of extending light rail into Washington.

Urgent Need for Effective Policy Solutions and Conservative Leadership

In conclusion, the economic challenges and border security issues discussed in this episode of “Indivisible with John Stubbins” highlight the urgent need for effective policy solutions and conservative, solid leadership in Washington State. Joe Kent’s candidacy offers a promising alternative for voters concerned about these critical issues.

Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller Discusses Border Impact and More

In the same episode of “Indivisible with John Stubbins,” Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller they have addressed various pressing issues, including the border situation, the economy, and challenges faced by farmers in the state. Miller’s insights shed light on the impact of these issues in Texas and nationwide.

The show, hosted by John Stubbins, prioritizes values such as faith, family, and patriotism. One of the key topics discussed was Miller’s ongoing efforts to address the challenges of the current border crisis.

Miller highlighted the effects of the border situation on land values, particularly in areas where illegal trafficking is prevalent. He noted that the land values along the border have plummeted, making it difficult for landowners to sell or farm their properties. Many ranchers have resorted to converting their land into high-fence game farms, bringing exotic livestock to generate revenue. However, this approach has challenges, as illegal activities persist, damaging property and endangering livestock.

When asked about the impact on his agency’s budget, Miller explained that while the general budget remained stable, the legislature cut his travel budget. This meant that he had to fund his own travel, which posed challenges given his job’s global marketing and travel requirements.

Despite the budget constraints, Miller continued to pursue his responsibilities and speaking engagements.

Regarding the border’s impact on agriculture, Miller noted that it has far-reaching consequences, including the devaluation of land, property damage, and even threats to livestock. He emphasized the need for constant vigilance to protect property and livelihoods in the face of the daily challenges of illegal activities.

Stubbins also inquired about any positive developments for Texas agriculture. Miller mentioned progress in working with ports, highlighting Laredo, TX, as the largest inland port in the United States, with 17 entry and exit points. He noted the substantial trade volume passing through Laredo and other ports, showcasing the importance of international trade for the state.

The conversation shifted to the influx of newcomers to Texas, with Stubbins expressing concerns about the potential political shifts resulting from out-of-state migration. Miller provided a nuanced perspective, suggesting that many new arrivals were conservatives fleeing liberal policies in other states. He cited survey data indicating that these newcomers were not solely responsible for political shifts in Texas.

Miller also discussed a lawsuit he filed against the Biden administration, challenging its pandemic relief program that prioritized race-based benefits. He highlighted the importance of opposing policies that base government benefits on an individual’s skin color.

In the show’s final segment, Stubbins expressed gratitude to Miller for his dedication and service. Miller shared his ongoing efforts to combat Biden’s 2030 plan, which seeks to idle a significant portion of U.S. land over the next decade. He emphasized the need to prevent such policies from taking hold in the United States.

Overall, Commissioner Sid Miller’s appearance on “Indivisible with John Stubbins” provided valuable insights into the impact of the border situation and other critical issues on Texas agriculture and the state’s economy. His commitment to defending conservative values and addressing pressing challenges was evident throughout the interview.
