In a bold and inspiring daytime landing, the new Americans beached their panga boat and swiftly headed for the hills and new lives in the USA.
Pretty La Jolla, that surf-rich jewel a dozen miles north of downtown San Diego, was privileged to welcome a boatload of new Americans a couple of nights back.
In what has become the new norm in a country that has swung open its golden door to the huddled masses, the wretched refuse, the new Americans made their beach landing near the $21 mill La Jolla home of Alice Keys, the chanteuse famous for Empire State of Mind.
Designed by the noted American architect Wallace E. Cunningham, the La Jolla Razor House, as it is called, was the inspiration for Tony Stark’s cliffside joint in the Iron Man franchise.
“Every wall in this house, every bit of it, is sculpture,” Cunningham told AD. “These beautiful S shapes, these chevrons going down the hillside, curvatures flying in space over your head. It’s more akin to sculpture than architecture. It is incredibly important to me. It’s dearest to my heart.”
Anyway, in a bold daytime landing, the new Americans beached their panga boat and swiftly headed for the hills and their new lives in the United States. Very inspiring.
I live just south of this video. We had a boat land a year ago in the middle of the night with dozens of migrants on it and the people just disbanned. Recognize that anyone can see a map of the water at night with a free marine app. The boat had to pass by multiple military…

You’ll recall a few months back when Malibu was put into a state of euphoria after a boat filled with twenty-five New Americans disembarked on its privileged shores.
The twenty-five new Americans scattered once they hit the golden sands of what used to be Chumash lands, and just under the $100-million clifftop compound of chanteuse Barbara Streisand.
The location of the Malibu landing was significant.
In 2019, Streisand, who is a long-time donor to the now-disgraced Democratic Party, criticised the ghastly Donald Trump for his plans to build a border wall.
“Trump only cares about this ‘wall’ in order to build a monument to himself. Just like the bankrupt ‘Trump’ buildings, the nation cannot afford to pay for his ego – not financially, not morally,” Streisand wrote on X.
And to Vogue magazine,
Streisand’s house at 6838 Zumirez Drive in Malibu ain’t that far from Paradise Cove, the upscale trailer park famous for its celebrity residents including iconic surf writer Sam George.
(Built in the nineteen-fifties on eighty-five acres of classic Californian beachfront land, the park became the go-to for ocean-lovers who wanted affordable seclusion amid the craziness of Los Angeles.)
American readers, particularly those from La Jolla and Malibu, does this golden new era of unfettered immigration fill you with pride or do you find a little off-putting?
And, non-American readers, what is your view from afar?
