Diminishing Returns.

January 12, 2011

Sort of like what has been happening to the leftists lately. Especially noticeable has been the public’s tepid response to the LSM’s instantaneous and vitriolic attacks against the conservative right.

They’ve pulled out all the stops. They’ve cranked up all their cranks, of whom they have such a delightful variety. They have Marxist members of Congress strutting around proclaiming new anti-gun legislation, which means nothing and will go nowhere.

This entire sad episode has backfired on the DeMarxists in ways they haven’t even figured out yet. Even some LSM types are a little disturbed at the way the leftist press and the political left have colluded to turn the heinous Arizona shootings into a political circus maximus with all the trimmings, including an out-of-control political hack sheriff, running around spouting outrageous, over-the-top rants at conservatives.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik is as radical a partisan hack politician as it is possible to be. He had his other moment of fame with his vocal opposition and refusal to enforce the immigration law that Arizona passed. The left’s appeal is ebbing. Well over 60% of the people of the United States of America identify with the Tea Party Patriot movement.

The left is lashing out with all the fury of a jilted lover. The more the American people reject them and their lies, the more desperate they become.

The Nightmare Before Christmas.

December 25, 2010

Wherever you live on the planet, the jolly red-faced gentleman, hitching up his pants around his portly frame, will have visited you by now. Er… no, I’m not referring to Barney Frank! The Christmas holiday is a time to chill out (or perhaps ‘freeze’ would be a better description, Mr Gore!) and try to forgive those that have done us wrong throughout the year.

There’s certainly a lot to forgive this year. The year started with the news that the number of long-term unemployed was the highest since official records began, back in 1948. While the country suffered the effects of high unemployment, low consumer confidence and failing businesses, the Obama administration was engaged in a war.

This was not the war in Iraq or Afghanistan, not even the generalized ‘war on terror’. This was their private war on Arizona. Forced into taking action at state level, due to the inaction of federal agencies, Governor Brewer was informed that her actions were unconstitutional. An amazing statement, given that the state legislation was, in most respects, a copy of the federal immigration policy.

The administration’s lame excuse was that it promoted racial profiling, even though the Arizona bill prevented such actions. This denial of the facts is the same as that shown by the powers granted to the TSA. Humiliate obviously innocent Americans with naked images and ‘sexual assaults’ (that’s what it is, folks), while allowing groups that are most likely of misdemeanor to conduct their own pat-downs.

Obama’s reluctance to comment on the folly that was the planned Ground Zero mosque was further proof of his fear of alienating his remaining support base. He knew that if he lost the support of the black, Hispanic, muslim and gay sectors (and, dare I say it, the illegal voters), his days would be numbered.

Never mind the unemployment figures and dying businesses – we can fix that with new, clean technology industries (Obama’s fixation with batteries); Don’t worry about the threat on the southern border – we’ll look at giving citizenship to the children of illegals; There’s no reason to be concerned about the spiraling federal deficit – we’ll introduce a VAT-style tax to give us more money for earmarks… after all, your money is the government’s money!

As the year approaches its end and we look forward to a new Congress in 2011, hopefully all this will will vanish like a bad dream… the nightmare before Christmas!

A Merry Christmas to our readers, from Skip and myself.

Terror Plot – Another Black Mark For Britain.

December 31, 2009

Yet again there is a connection between an attempted terrorist attack and Britain. Another ‘home grown’ would-be mass murderer whose plot fortunately went awry. There is precious little good news in the press these days and every item regarding the so-called ‘United’ Kingdom seems to be another nail in the coffin of a once proud, honorable nation.

After World War II Britain was lacking in manpower to rebuild a war-torn country, cities and seaports having been all but decimated by constant bombing raids and assaults by the dreaded nazi V rockets. Many of the male population had been killed or severely injured during the conflict, a factor that drove the government to import labor, principally from the British colonies, later called the Commonwealth.

1948 - The Start Of Large-Scale Immigration To Britain.

Most of these new ‘Britons’ assumed roles essential to the infrastructure of any developed country, transportation being one example. The newcomers were happy to be in a country which, although virtually bankrupt after years of turmoil and still enduring food rationing, was a pretty good place to be after the total poverty that many had known before. Aside from the usual verbal and sometimes physical attacks from a bigoted few, they now had a chance to advance and create a better life for themselves and their children.

So why, then, does it seem that fifty or so years later, a sizable number of immigrants, or their descendants, would like to destroy a culture that afforded them so many opportunities in the past? In a 2007 survey, the results of which were well covered by the media at the time, it was shown that one in eleven of all British-residing moslems agreed that suicide bombing was acceptable. Doesn’t sound a lot, but that equates to about 140,000 people. If it ever really hits the fan, that many ‘fifth columnists’ could do a lot of damage.

The Legendary British 'Bobby' Amid Scenes More Akin To The Third World.

It is hardly surprising that Britain is a magnet to this sort of person. While the government is constantly blathering on about equality for all minority groups and preaches tolerance toward those of other beliefs, those they seek to help are plotting their, and our, destruction. This ‘religion of peace’ is using its mosques to recruit Jihad activists and spread the word that anything that stands in their way, or does not conform to their sense of ‘morality’ must be eliminated.

While the British intelligence agencies and New Scotland Yard’s Anti-Terrorist Unit are doing their utmost to protect the public on both sides of the pond, the weakness of the government and questionable affinities for organizations like Hamas are counter-productive. The Prime Minister, ‘Flash’ Gordon Brown, seems more concerned about saving the world in fifty days from a mythical threat.

Unlike many countries, England still has an official ‘state’ religion, Protestantism under the Church of England. Regardless of this, the formation of Sharia civil courts has been given approval in some cities. The Church does not have such a system, its members having to adhere to the laws of the realm, as is only right and proper.

With the inception of Islamic Sharia courts, the pro-Palestinian stance of the government, the unwillingness to prosecute those who verbally threaten its citizens and promote civil unrest, not to mention the immigration bans on Americans and Europeans who warn of the threat of Islamic fundamentalism – I wonder why Britain finds favor with Jihadists? As they used to say on radio quiz shows, answers on a postcard, please!

Homeland Security…Ain’t!

October 29, 2009

Where to start? Our undefended¬† southern border with Mexico. We have 1969 miles of common border with our ‘neighbor’ to the south. You know the one I mean. The one governed by the drug cartels? The cartels whose private militias are at least as potent as the Mexican military? Our Immigration and Customs Enforcement has LESS than 700 miles of the border in what they term “under control”. This is a statement which is obviously open to interpretation…ask the Border Patrol officers on the ground how much control they have…but do it when their politically motivated supervisors are not around.
Ask the ranchers in rural areas of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas how much control there is over the depredation of the illegals to their land, their property and their livestock.
These ranchers have to go armed in defense of their lives and their families’ lives on their own property.
It’s not just Mexican and Central American illegals coming over either. Items left behind are evidence that middle eastern infiltration was and is occurring across that border. Excuse me for believing that these people don’t have our best interests in mind. Captured documents indicate that Al Qaeda infiltrators are told to learn Spanish to more easily blend in. Well-financed middle eastern illegals utilize coyote smugglers regularly. It’s also real hard to imagine that these fine folks just want to come here to practice their “Religion of Peace”.
I’d like to stick Obama with the southern border issue, even though he surely will do little or nothing to improve the situation down there, and in point of fact has ordered the removal of four hundred Border Patrol agents for reassignment elsewhere. But for sure it didn’t start with him.
The border has been a sieve for a very long time. The Clintons saw it as a cheap sure-vote getter.
George Bush gave it lip service behind the impetus of 9-11 at best. His fancies of appealing to the Hispanic voting block were foolish. Besides, mid western meat packing companies needed that cheap labor. This is a shameful connivance by both Democrats and Republicans, which by the way is another major reason the Conservative electorate in this country abandoned the Republicans this last cycle. Americans are sick to death of paying the freight for illegals. Our hospitals are overwhelmed by US GOVERNMENT MANDATED CARE FOR ILLEGALS. Emergency trauma centers, some of the finest medical facilities in the world, have been forced to close or sharply curtail their activities. Here in the border states in particular, our educational systems are inundated with the children of illegal aliens filling our classrooms and reducing the level of the curriculum in order to cater to the special needs of these illegals’ kids, thereby ruining the quality level of education for our own children. Our prisons have a population of illegals approaching 30%. Many incarcerated for very violent offenses. Our state is virtually bankrupt.
If this were not enough to make you reach for the migraine tabs consider this…Every one of our air and rail transportation hubs has been and is being cased on a virtually daily basis by middle eastern types who are free to roam pretty much as they please.
Once, when I had been hired by a company as a project manager, I had a couple of weeks to kill before my start date. I have a friend who owns a high end cab company and he was short a driver so I went to work for him for two weeks. My travels took me in and out of an international airport frequently.
One thing that came to my notice was the proliferation of little independent taxis driven by obviously middle eastern men. Ask me if I’m profiling? OH HELL YES! These guys were all over the place. Not working out of any dispatch center they operated off of cell phones…generally they were a surly bunch.
The liberals among you by now are wringing their hands and sniveling “but they’re just trying to work and be part of the American dream”. Ok and so were the three thousand souls that were murdered in the twin towers. If I was in Homeland Security I’d seriously consider the threat posed by hundreds of middle-easterners, accountable to no one, who knew these hubs intimately and are able to access many areas of them.
But then, I’m sure that all these folks are just hard working members of the “Religion of Peace”.
