At The Heart Of It: Illegal Immigration.

November 25, 2011

It appears as though our ‘Republican’ candidates have once again forgotten how to spell the word illegal. Notice the use of the term ‘Republicans’ as opposed to ‘Conservative’ candidates.

Our assumed first-tier candidates have been pussy-footing around illegal immigration like social workers daintily stepping around piles of poo at ‘Occupy Oakland’, or one of the other super-fund cleanup sites engendered by the useless, wasted piles of human garbage that inhabit these places. Oh, and did I mention that they are the DeMarxists’ political action committee as well?

They make at least as much sense as the Democrats themselves… which is to say, not much. It is, however, one of the cornerstones to which the Marxists have affixed their fading brand.

The illegal alien issue is going to be huge with the American people. We’re sick to death of hearing about how “we”, the American people, have to be ‘caring’ and ‘compassionate’ towards those who have breached the the sovereignty of our borders, breaking the most basic law of the land.

The overwhelming majority of these people are not simple farmers looking for work. What they want, friends, is that which you have in your pockets… if you have anything left at all after three consecutive years of uber-liberal Marxist governance under wannabe Caliph Barack Hussein Obama, that is.

To claim, as we have heard time after time, ad nauseam, that these ‘poor little people’ are simply here to find work and a better way of life, is garbage. I’ll grant you that for some of them (the illegals), particularly the ones who’ve been here the longest, that may be true. Does this change the fact that by their very existence on this side of the border they are committing a felony every single day they are here? Either the laws of our country apply to everyone within the borders of the United States of America, or they do not. It’s that simple.

The constantly thrown up straw-horse of the left, and now the mantra of certain linguine-spined Republican candidates, that we can’t possibly deport eleven million people is disingenuous… more than that, it’s specious in the extreme. In the first place our government (you know, those vacuum-headed ne’er-do-wells luxuriating in the exemptions from the very laws they write for the rest of us to follow) have been lying about illegal immigration numbers all along. They’ve been claiming numbers of illegals through our borders at around ten to twelve million for twenty or more years. Excuse me? My contacts tell me that as many as ten thousand ‘poor farmers’ may be flooding through the undefended smuggling corridors every few weeks. My best guess and, surprisingly enough, confirmed by someone who has worked the border for many moons, would be upward of twenty million.

Puh-lease, let us not descend into the quagmire of the very weak claims that these people pay taxes and are somehow a net asset to this country… horsecrap! Illegal aliens are a net loss and a burden, reaching into the multiples of billion dollars per year. “But Skip, they contribute so much to the richness and diversity of our nation.” Really? Where? Here in California alone, illegal immigrants cost California taxpayers 15 billion dollars per year. Twenty per cent of the prison population of this state are illegal aliens. Trust me when I say these people aren’t here to hold hands and sing Kumbaya. This brings us back to the current Republican presidential candidates.

Newt Gingrich is going to be just about the brightest light in any room he is in. That’s why I can’t for the life of me see why he just can’t seem to get it on illegal immigration. We don’t want those people here, sucking on the life blood of our country. Mitt Romney is weak on immigration and the border and always has been, so there’s no surprise there.

The issue is going to become more and more heated as the campaign season progresses, but we must focus on a very narrow front here. The DeMarxists could care less about the plight of the poor ‘illegals’. What they do know is that they cannot win without a continuous influx of illegals to bolster their voting roles, along with the population of hundreds of cemeteries across the nation.

Any Republican who attaches him- or herself to this issue will find themselves the darlings of the left. Lauded far and near as Republicans with ‘understanding’ and ‘sympathy’. But it won’t win an election and is just about guaranteed to put Maobama back in office.

Mexican Wars.

June 21, 2011

Since we received some queries last week… I’m back! Last week was one of 15 hour days for me. It’s just the nature of the business I’m in. I liked the way Dee answered one comment from an affiliate: “It’s just too hard to put on his writing head after all those hours”. Pretty apt description.

It’s proven really difficult to impress upon the establishment types the dire necessity of tackling the Mexican issue as a matter of party policy. You cannot separate the border issues from the economy… nor can the 20 million plus illegals, feeding like leeches from the veins of American taxpayers, be ignored any longer. The asinine assertion that we can’t remove these law breakers… felons by any American legal definition… is just so much bull bleep.

As has been shown in the past during any period of stringent enforcement, they repatriate themselves. Don’t try to sell us the sob stories either. How would a citizen of the US (or any other country) fare if caught sneaking into Mexico, or anywhere else in Central or South America? They don’t exactly roll out the welcome mat down there.

Witness what’s occurring in Arizona as we speak. Thousands of illegals are leaving under the impetus of the implementation of Arizona’s immigration enforcement initiatives. Unfortunately, they’re heading for States where the goodies are still being ladled out, like California, whose really simple-minded state legislature has just voted to allow in-state tuition for illegals and the children of illegal aliens in the California university system.

The State of California has an unfunded debt liability of over 40 billion dollars. We see the Governor of California lying outright, in order to gain support for his union welfare tax increases.

Illegal aliens cost the state over 10.5 billion dollars annually, and they pay an additional one point four billion dollars every year to incarcerate 20,000 more illegals. The state is broke. It’s a disaster looking for a place to occur. California state lawmakers should be removed for malfeasance in office. It makes one wonder if California voters will ever break the shackles of union/state imperialism. Other states tell a similar story.

It’s imperative, then, that whoever we put forward to carry the Conservative banner has a firm grip on the subject of illegal immigration and the intestinal fortitude to recapture America for Americans.

McCain – Will They Fall For Him Again?

August 24, 2010

Arizona has proven itself to be a pretty sane place. I hope that holds true through the primary election for the Senate race between JD Hayworth and John McCain.

I’d like to hope that Arizona would have better sense than to fall for McCain’s chameleon-like transformation into a closed borders, anti-illegal alien guy. Or, that along with people like the ever-detestable Lindsey Graham, he was perfectly willing to sell the American people down the road with his carbon tax scheme.

It cost twenty million dollars of McCain money to get the Senator this far. He did his best to destroy JD Hayworth with Arizona voters. What was disappointing was the support that McCain got from the Old Guard Republican Party back in the beltway. They were the same ones who backed McCain for President. McCain could prove to be a very negative factor in the US Senate. He simply cannot be trusted not to immediately revert to type once re-elected. Millions of Patriots have made it abundantly clear that we do not want business as usual from our elected representatives.

Political prognosticators from both ends of the spectrum are calling for what may be a political repudiation of historical proportions, with estimates north of fifty seats that could be lost by the DeMarxists in November. Further, there are some who are now openly speculating on the real possibility that the Senate could be lost to the Conservative Republican revolution as well.

McCain just cannot be trusted. He’s proven too many times that he’s willing to throw party and principles away. From the Gang of Fourteen to his willingness to sell us out on immigration… proof that he cannot be trusted is out there in abundance.

If you live in Arizona, please get to the polls and vote today. Gather your friends and family and get them to the polls.

Arizona Law Gains Favor.

August 20, 2010

It looks like Arizona has a lot of serious company out there just now. No fewer than twenty two states are in the process of drafting, or seeking to pass, legislation such as was passed by Arizona. Others are looking at the Arizona law with renewed interest.

Representative Debbie Riddle of Texas aims to pass a new immigration law in January.

The cash strapped municipalities, counties and states can ill afford the lavish largesse, once routinely offered to illegals by liberal governments. The gravy train is petering out for one reason… there is no money. Federal programs and make-work grants are fizzling out.

The stimulus simply didn’t work. That money is running out. The sectors favored most by the infusion of these federal dollars are of course the people to whom Obama and his DeMarxist Congress were most beholden… the public sector unions, the SEIU, the teachers’ unions. So far, they’ve largely avoided the brutal layoff / no job nightmare the rest of us have been living with, only because of repeated bail outs.

It will be increasingly difficult to keep these jobs off the chopping block as further bailouts seem unlikely, given the proximity of the elections and the mood in the country about any further deficit spending. Once the public sector starts to feel the bite, more dissatisfaction will be directed towards Obama and his government.

These twenty two states are legislating in the face of the government’s lawsuit which challenges the legality of Arizona’s ‘tough’ illegal immigration law, which is nothing more than federal law enforced. I think more states will start looking really hard at enacting similar laws, as they have to face how much catering to illegals is really costing them.

Encourage your lawmakers to consider Arizona-style legislation. If we dry up the goodies we won’t have to deport them, because they’ll go back where they came from if there’s no work or welfare to attract and hold them.

Meg Whitman: The Next Arnold In Waiting.

July 29, 2010

Meg Whitman was on America’s Morning News today. After listening to her talk, I had the distinct impression that what we’re getting is another big government liberal. When queried about the illegal alien subject she danced all over the issue, saying that “Arizona’s anti-illegal alien law was not for California”. It made me wonder if she had ever read California’s statutes, like 634-b of the criminal code. Maybe someone should tell her that we have had the same laws on our books for decades.

Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown

Successive liberal state governments (like Jerry ‘Moonbeam’ Brown’s) have tied law enforcements’ hands, preventing them from arresting illegals for anything except violent crime, and turning them over to ICE agents and deporting them. These laws have been in existence for thirty years or more.

Whitman then moved on to say that she would ‘seal’ the border. Um, has anybody bothered to tell Megs that the Feds control the border? Sounds just like an Arizona problem doesn’t it? Maybe Whitman should talk to some of the ranchers in the Jacumba, Davies Station or Campo Station areas of the state she wishes to govern, who have to go around armed and in fear for their families.

She further said she would ensure that employers were severely punished for hiring illegal aliens and see to it that so-called ‘sanctuary cities’ would be punished and prevented from sheltering illegal aliens, such as the convicted felon who slaughtered Tony Bologna and two of his sons in that great outdoor sewer and illegal alien paradise, San Francisco.

Sounds pretty good in a general way, doesn’t it? Until you find out that she is broadcasting the diametric opposite message in Spanish on Latino language radio stations and on at least one billboard, which had been spotted and reported by a Tea Party patriot, saying “No on 187 and No on the Arizona immigration law“. In Spanish that would be called “hablar dando una de cal y otra de arena”. Speaking from both sides of your mouth.

Not that I think ‘Moonbeam’ is any bargain either. He made a hash of state government as Governor once before and then for an encore, as Mayor, turned Oakland into a veritable shooting gallery.
Abel Maldinado is out of the question as well… he’s not even a good crook… just a stupid ego-maniacal one. That leaves us with Meg, who thought that Van Jones (Oakland communist agitator) was the greatest thing since cream cheese. Not a great selection for Californians.

But, we cannot afford to stay home. If anything, we have to support Whitman as the best of several bad choices and then try and pressure her to do the right thing. Sounds like a familiar scenario for Californians, doesn’t it?
We booted Gray Davis to get Arnold, and we’re getting rid of him for…?

Barack Obama’s Mason-Dixon Line.

July 16, 2010

The Mason-Dixon Line was the resolution of a border dispute between the then British colonies of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia. It was named after the surveyors who undertook the task between 1763 and 1767, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon. The Mason-Dixon line was some 233 miles in length. It later became the demarcation between the ‘Yankee North’ and the South ‘Dixie’.

This 1861 map shows the position of the Mason-Dixon line.

Later on, it became known as the line between the ‘free’ North and the slave South, in particular between Pennsylvania and Maryland. During the 1800s, and particularly during the Civil War, it became the infamous Mason-Dixon line, marking the separation line between the Federal Unionist north and the Confederate south. There are no boundaries separating North and South any longer. There is a definite border between the United States of America and Mexico.

Our government, under Barack Hussein Obama, chooses to act as though we have no border, and in point of fact encourages the flood of illegals coming through. His Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, makes absolutely asinine statements such as, ‘The Border Patrol is better staffed now than at any time in its history’. Such statements fool no one. I’ve detailed in this column over the last eighteen months how Barack Obama has systematically stripped the southern border of over four hundred Border Patrol officers.

Our international border has become a war zone for the southern border states. California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas are the fronts in this war, with heavily-armed drug gangs coming and going at will, with Border Patrol officers being outgunned, shot at and assaulted at an ever increasing pace, with American citizens being ravaged and murdered on their own property, with millions of illegal aliens sapping the lifeblood of this country and its legitimate citizens. This government has much to answer for.

In self defense, one state has stood against the federal behemoth. Arizona has passed a law reinforcing existent federal laws already on the books, which successive administrations have failed to do. Now, the DeMarxist administration of Barack Obama is attacking Arizona for defending its clearly defined state’s right, claiming it to be unconstitutional. What is unconstitutional is the entire regime behind that suit.

Arizona is no longer alone in her stand against Eric Holder and the MaoBama White House. So far, nine other states have come out in support of Arizona and are actively seeking to enact laws of their own… Michigan, Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia… in addition to the Northern Mariana Islands. Looks like the Marianas take their borders seriously anyway. By the way, California, in all its hallucinatory arrogance, has the exact same laws already on the books that Arizona passed.

Obama has his own new Mason-Dixon Line. This time, there is no Confederacy. This time, it’s American citizens standing up to a tyrannical regime. Time is running out for the DeMarxists, and that makes them more dangerous than ever. There is a chilling article on RedState by Gary Bentley, entitled “Revolution Or Civil War, It’s Your Choice”.

It’s a nightmare scenario, like something out of a mystery thriller, though there’s not a damn thing funny about where this whole thing could go if we don’t get a real handle on it this November.

By The Way, While You Weren’t Looking…

May 30, 2010

The nation is spellbound, as it watches the monumental struggle between puny mankind and elemental natural forces at 5,000 feet beneath the ocean. This is an environmental disaster of the first rank and no one will argue that, but while you, as concerned citizens, are focused on the Gulf coast, guess what your US Senate was doing?

Reid and Schumer

They’re scheming to steal your liberties and give them to illegal aliens. Charles (Chuck) Schumer and Majority Leader Harry Reid on the Senate side and Luis Gutierrez, (D) Ill. and Solomon Ortiz, (D) Texas for the House side. The two proposed bills graphically illustrate just exactly what the leftists are really all about. For elected representatives to embrace and foster this decidedly self-serving and onerous legislation is, in my opinion, tantamount to a direct assault and contravention of our Constitution. These people should be investigated, as well as their ties to leftist illegal alien supporters and those who thrive from the illegal alien trade.

This legislation is rife with such cute alien incentives such as free automatic social security. Hey, gee whiz citizens, where’s our free anything? Silly me, it takes mucho dinero to keep those aliens here, in our schools, in our hospitals and last, but certainly not least, in our jails and prisons.

There’s an article I’d recommend you read on ‘Right Wing News’ entitled ‘22 Problems With The Senate’s Illegal Immigration Bill‘. This article, by John Hawkins, lays it out pretty well and makes me wonder why these perennial sellout politicians haven’t been called for treason against the country and the constitution.

If there are any Republicans that support this amnesty we must drive them from office. We can no longer afford ‘Republicans In Name Only’. Now, perhaps, we should add ‘CINO’ – Conservatives In Name Only, since conservatism seems to be the party banner.

It’s time to start lighting up the phone lines again, not that you’ve ever stopped, but we’ll have to really hammer them to get their attention. Don’t ever let them distract you from the goal of chasing these Marxists out of government and keeping it that way.
