Mexico aids its own citizens efforts to stay in U$A

January 16, 2015

Are Republican House and Senate majorities poised to retreat on amnesty?

Mexicans living illegally in the United States are not only getting assistance via Barack Obama’s executive order shielding them from deportation, they are also getting help leaving Mexico…from Mexico.

On Thursday, the Mexican government began issuing birth certificates to its citizens at its 50 consulates in the United States —- a move that is a shocking affront to the sovereignty of the United States.

This brazen Mexican government action eases the way for illegals to obtain U.S. work permits, driver’s licenses, rent housing, enroll their children in schools and receive protection from deportation as they facilitate their lives here. Previously, Mexico required its citizens to get birth certificates at government offices in Mexico.

As House Republicans voted to defund appropriations (roll call vote under link) to the Department of Homeland Security in an effort to revoke Obama’s plan to allow millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. evade deportation, Mexico eases their path to leave. Facilitating their stay in the U.S. enables Mexican nationals to continue sending money, called remittances, across the border.

Remittances are a tax-free and massive transfer of wealth out of the United States. In 2013, an estimated $61 billion in remittances disappeared from our economy via the institutionalized money transfer industry, not only to Mexico, but throughout Latin America, where it remains a vital source of revenue. Mexico accounted for $22 billion, which according to the World Bank is in fourth place behind India, China and the Philippines in a global ranking for remittances according to this October 2013 report.

Now it appears Obama and Mexico have friends in both the U.S. House and Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to maintain funding for the Department of Homeland Security, and is looking to pass a “clean funding bill” without any language restricting the administration’s actions on immigration.

Are Americans being treated to Oscar-worthy theatrics on the D.C. stage?


Illegal alien lunacy thrives with leftists on both coasts

January 14, 2015

In his first State of the City address, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday said, “To all of my fellow New Yorkers who are undocumented, I say: New York City is your home, too, and we will not force any of our residents to live their lives in the shadows.”

The radical left-winger said providing the estimated half-million illegal aliens living in New York City identification cards allows them to feel like citizens and enjoy some of the same benefits as actual citizens. “We don’t want any of our fellow New Yorkers to feel like second-class citizens,” Comrade Mayor de Blasio declared. “We don’t want them to feel left out.” 

The Left Coast is equally brain-dead on the subject of protecting American citizens by providing secure borders. Diminishing the importance of U.S. citizenship is the new standard. 

Sharing a stage with loopy Democrat California Gov. Jerry Brown in Los Angeles in August, brassy Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto called on other states to “evolve” like California so the United States can be more like his home country. Pena Nieto called for amnesty legislation and open borders while criticizing governors who have taken strong positions against illegal immigration. He referred to California, by saying “This is the other Mexico.” 

In return, Jerry Brown cheered, “You’re All Welcome in California!” Although California is operating under a nearly $9 billion cash deficit, Brown proposed a record $106.8 billion budget. The California State Teachers’ Retirement System debt alone is accruing at $22 million per day. Yet the gravy train continues. According to CBS News, California citizens paid out $650 million in welfare benefits to illegals in 2013. The actual amounts are vastly higher, ultimately exceeding $1.6 billion dollars a year, as the final paragraph in the news report acknowledges.

Murder in Paris: Multiculturalism, fanned by lack of assimilation, fails

January 8, 2015

Paris, known as “The City of Light” for its leading role during the Age of Enlightenment, is darkened in sorrow after a bloody massacre Wednesday, intended to stifle freedom of the press.

The terrorist attack took the lives of twelve after satirical publication Charlie Hebdo fomented Islamic ire for its caricature of Muhammad —- although other religions and various political figures have been the target of the weekly magazine’s jibes.

Eight journalists, two police officers, a maintenance worker and a visitor to the office were killed. Eleven others are reportedly wounded — four of them seriously.

A massive manhunt has been underway for the trio of French nationals, including two brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi ages 34 and 32. Another man, 18, has surrendered. The brothers had previously been tried on terrorism charges. Cherif was part of an Iraqi jihadi network dismantled in a nearby Paris neighborhood. He was sentenced to just three years in prison with 18 months oddly suspended in relation to terror charges in May 2008.

As they entered the offices to commit the atrocities, the masked and heavily armed murderers shouted, “Allahu Akhbar,” a phrase with which the civilized world has become all too familiar.

The UK’s Telegraph reports France’s stand against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria —- ISIS, called a JV team by Barack Obama —-  its bans on wearing a full-face veil in public and headscarf in state schools have made it a prime target for Islamist terrorists. It has western Europe’s largest Muslim population, estimated at approximately six million. At least 1,000 French nationals are believed to be involved in jihad in Syria, Iraq and on home soil.

Most disturbing is the information contained in this Washington Times report, detailing how Parisian officials have increasingly ceded control of heavily Muslim neighborhoods to Islamists, block by block. Large segments of this population have not assimilated and some talk openly of eventually controlling the country, replacing Western legal systems with Sharia law.

“The situation is out of control, and it is not reversible,” said Soeren Kern, an analyst at the Gatestone Institute and author of annual reports on the “Islamization of France.” 

“Islam is a permanent part of France now. It is not going away,” he said. “I think the future looks very bleak. The problem is a lot of these younger-generation Muslims are not integrating into French society. Although they are French citizens, they don’t really have a future in French society.

Let this be a lesson. A massive influx of cheap labor coming from impoverished countries can appear attractive to the business community.  But the cultural divide carries a steep price and one we ultimately can’t afford to pay.


In Obamaspeak: a “good heart” = bowing to invaders

December 10, 2014

Addressing a town-hall meeting of illegals and their supporters in Nashville on Tuesday, Barack Obama boasted that his successor won’t take on what he considers the political risk that reversing his recent executive amnesty action would entail.

“It’s true a future administration might try to reverse some of our policies. But I’ll be honest with you -— the American people basically have a good heart and want to treat people fairly. So any future administration that tried to punish people for doing the right thing, I think, would not have the support of the American people,” Obama claimed. “It’s true, theoretically, a future administration could do something that I think would be very damaging. It’s not likely, politically, that they reverse everything we’ve done.”

Yet even his unconstitutional executive amnesty order normalizing at least five million foreign nationals who showed contempt for our laws and sovereignty is not enough to pacify the illegals. The Tennessean newspaper reports two people balanced on a big commercial trash can full of old tires, holding a fabric sign proclaiming in Spanish, “FALTAN 7 MILLONES,” which translates to 7 million left out.

The report describes one high school student, whose father came to the U.S. as a “migrant.” She was among the invited guests selected to hear Obama’s speech, and described her excitement at being handed the microphone to ask a question. Obama told her voting was a key way to make an impact on issues of higher education and immigration.

“I absolutely think that’s the case,” she agreed.

As far as committed leftist Obama is concerned, that’s actually what it’s all about.

Like an adolescent experiencing a first mad crush, the newspaper giddily gushes over Obama’s return trip to Nashville. Reporter Frank Daniels, III, could get a dose of reality by visiting the border state of Arizona, to gauge the actual costs associated with the realities of illegal immigration. Taxpayer funded benefits including education, medical care, nutritional handouts and the staggering costs related to the criminal justice system might cause him to rethink his genial glee. The green rolling farmlands of Tennessee are a far cry from Arizona’s desert abutting a foreign country that encourages its own citizens to illegally enter, as they drain public resources, spike our crime rate and take our jobs in a still tough economy.

Daniels might begin with considering the impact of sending remittances totaling $21.6 billion back to Mexico —- in 2013 alone —- to bolster its economy. Arizona’s porous border is also a portal for any and all comers, including OTM’s (Law enforcement term for ‘Other Than Mexicans‘) many, including radicalized Muslims, intending to bring harm to our nation.

Our “good heart” has been pushed to its limit.


Leftist lies: Ebola, amnesty, ISIS terrorists on border

October 14, 2014

News from the U. S. Department of Defense regarding the deadly Ebola virus sparks major concerns as Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, makes grim predictions.  Kelly says the Ebola virus will not be contained in West Africa, and if infected people flee those countries and spread the disease to Central and South America, it could cause “mass migration into the United States” of those seeking treatment.

“If the disease gets to countries like Guatemala, Honduras or El Salvador, it will cause a panic and people will flee the region,” Gen. Kelly said last week in remarks to the National Defense University. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.

Yet Barack Obama assures us the chances of an Ebola outbreak in U.S. are extremely lo (video).

Juxtapose General Kelly’s concerns against the blasé attitude of California’s radical leftist senior Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 81.  She recently wrote this commentary, for the San Diego Union Tribune, in which she unequivocally declared the border secure, saying thoughts to the contrary were based on “false fears.”

“The bottom line” she asserts, “is that the southern border is more secure than ever.”  Feinstein assures readers that  time has come to pass “immigration reform,“ —- more accurately known as amnesty —- deceitfully claiming “the border security package included in the Senate-passed comprehensive immigration reform bill would further lock it down.” She offers empty assurances that a pending bill addresses “border security.”

It does not.

As a case in point, Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles confirms the fact that 4 ISIS terrorists have been captured on the border as they recently entered Texas via Mexico. How many have passed through undetected is anyone’s guess.

Seeing Red AZ postedHezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns,” in 2011. It includes a link to a disturbing newscast from ABC 10 News in San Diego, which should have sounded the alarm, but didn’t.

Turkey, integral to Obama’s “broad coalition” is now disputing his claim it will let U.S. aircraft fly from an American base into Iraq and Syria to fight ISIS. The Muslim country’s Istanbul University has become a haven for the terrorist group.

Still, Obama, Feinstein, Harry Reid and liberals of their ilk who care more about expanding the Democrat base than the safety and security of America’s citizens, continue to be reelected. They are joined by long-in-the-tooth, establishment RINOs epitomized by John McCain, in D.C. over well over three decades, and “shortimer” Jeff Flake, first elected in 2000. Voting for amnesty supporters is voting against our country’s best interests. Think about that as you mark your ballots.


Ebama: The tale of a president willing to gravely endanger Americans

October 8, 2014

Thomas Duncan, 1st Ebola patient diagnosed in U.S., died today in Dallas

The General Election is just around the bend. Many of the races and candidates have been covered here. But today we digress from campaigns to a single politician —- Barack Hussein Obama.

As the President of the United States, he is the man entrusted with the solemn duty of keeping American citizens safe.  Yet he is now risking the lives of the populace with policies designed to further the spread of a deadly contagion.  More concerned with political correctness and a commitment to open borders, he refuses too impose any travel restrictions from the West African nations where death runs rampant. Several African nations, including Kenya and Nigeria have issued travel bans. Additionally, Obama has inexplicably sent American troops, unprepared to deal with a deadly epidemic, to the infected areas.

The U.S. State Department currently allows applicants with HIV/AIDS to apply and enter our country. Those infected with tuberculosis, leprosy, or other afflictions “of public health significance” can apply for waivers.

Ebola, with no treatment or known cure, is rapidly becoming a global health crisis of monumental proportions. According to this September CDC report, which admits under-reporting of the actual cases, the number of Ebola outbreaks in Liberia and Sierra Leone could escalate to between 550,000 and 1.4 million by January 2015, and rise even higher if there are no “additional interventions or changes in community behavior.”

Another assessment published by WHO experts in the New England Journal of Medicine reports the fatality rate of the outbreak in West Africa is 71% and assesses the “current epidemiologic outlook [as] bleak.”  “The Ebola epidemic,” they write, is “in grave danger of spiraling out of control.”

Against this backdrop, we invite you to read the illuminating commentary “Ebola and Obama” by Dr. Thomas Sowell. It’s printed in Human Events, known for its powerful, conservative voices.

ACLUers condone infanticide and prefer war on Christians to war on terrorists

This revealing interview session, conducted by Fox News’ Jesse Watters, is interspersed with much needed comic relief clips. It took place at the recent ACLU convention in Princeton, New Jersey.

Notice that one of the interviewees is a University of Chicago law professor. That’s the same school where Barack Obama allegedly was a  constitutional law professor.
