President Teddy Roosevelt on Immigration

President Teddy Roosevelt on Immigration

We are loosing America!

The public signs and phone options in Spanish are just one of hundreds of symptoms of America’s decline. So is the increasingly common practice of presenting one’s self as an African-American, Mexican-American, Italian-American, etc., etc..

The same can be said when angry Americans and immigrants brandish their original country’s flags during various protests, or desecrate our own.

America is being balkanized into ethnic, religious, and life-style factions all vying for political, social and economic domination. It can reasonably be said that America is at war with itself.

In the late 1940’s there were immigrants from Germany who entered our school system in my small town and one such family lived on my block. The children learned to speak and read English rapidly because our schools and the American Culture demanded that they did so. I recall that their parents and the elderly normally learned our language more slowly. Our Lutheran Church kindly had German services for the elderly that continued for many years.

Although adult German immigrants were sometimes slower than their children to learn English, they did learn to speak and read our language. I was blessed to date a girl from a family of German heritage. Many of her relatives (Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles) could speak fluent German, but they were also fluent in English and English had become their primary language.

I married this young lady in 1963 and have been blessed by my beloved wife and her  wonderful and thoroughly American family ever-since.

I never once head any of my wife’s relatives refer to themselves as German-Americans. All of them worked hard, took no governmental hand-outs, and they lived successful and relatively prosperous lives as proud Americans.

America must return to Teddy Roosevelt’s strong views on the ways that legal American Immigration should be managed.

Regarding a different, but related matter, Illegal immigration must be stopped immediately.

Please see the following:

I ask you to be sure to vote conservative…very conservative.

P.S.. President Teddy Roosevelt’s resounding words about American Immigration were sent to me by an exemplary legal German post-WWII immigrant school-mate named John Plume.

The Big Lie: “Islam Is Peace”

April 4, 2016

The Big Lie: “Islam Is Peace”

How could anyone keep their temper and a straight face when they hear this stinking dirty lie?!

The phrase, “Islam is Peace”, is B.S..

I am certain that this is propaganda spread by Islamists, progressive/socialists and anarchists who wish to destroy all vestiges of Western Civilization, and replace them with their own fantasies of “utopias on earth”. The “utopias” that in history have only lead to epochs of death and destruction.

Their work is nearly complete in Europe and now they will focus more heavily on America.

Wake-Up America!

You must view this near countless compendium of Islamic terrorist atrocities both recently and over many years.

P.S. 1, Be sure to inspect the methodology of the construction of these listings. They have done the best they reasonably can to be accurate.

P.S. Thanks again to John Plume for bringing this website to my attention.

Obama Destroys America’s Military

April 3, 2016

Obama Destroys America’s Military

Obama has done his best to destroy America’s military. Those who think that he is doing this for “our own good” or perhaps the “good of the world”, must still be searching for the tooth fairy.

Obama promised to “Transform America” during his first Presidential run. That phrase is well known to progressive socialists, Marxist revolutionaries and anarchists around the world. It is “code” for destroying traditional Western Civilizations and replacing them with socialism. Between this crew and their cooperative relationship with Radical Islam, they are making great progress.

The low-information crowd, fools and rank progressive/socialists among us elected Obama, not once but twice. Many conservatives and others continue to underestimate him. Guess what, he is not stupid or inexperienced, he has accomplished exactly what he set-out to do!

It is just this simple: Destroy our military and the world will destroy us.

Our traitorous “Commander in Chief” knew this and his “Transformation of America” is now nearing completion.

The following is a synopsis of a 4/1/16 Fox News report on the debilitated state of America’s military, thanks to President Obama. Yes, it was aired on April Fool’s Day…and we Americans are the fools.

Please tollerate the brief ad that precedes this video. You must see what Obama has done to America’s military, below.

Now, just to further validate the point of this blog, the following additional video appears to show our so-called “Commander-in-Chief disrespecting a Marine, who stands as a symbolic representative of America’s military. Watch as the military pilot of Obama’s  helicopter appears to instruct Obama to go back and show respect to the Marine.

Obama has often disrespected our military. For more confirming evidence, please read the following very short report and view the riveting video:

Do not think, for a second, that Obama is unaware of the Presidential protocol for responding to a military salute to him. Given the Presidential core of advisors on protocol, that cannot be true.

Obama has nearly destroyed America. Now the America’s vote will soon determine if Socialists Clinton or Sanders will complete the job.

Obama: “Architect of Destruction”

September 11, 2015

Obama: “Architect of Destruction”

I am presenting the following article with little commentary and I endorse its full message.

The author is Maureen Scott has described America’s epic and historical Presidential disaster more clearly than anyone I have ever read.

Interestingly, she wrote this article in 2013. Her assessment of Obama was perfectly predictive of his behavior to this day, and I will wager, to the very last day of his Presidency.

Please read Maureen’s article and do your part to make sure America never again suffers a national catastrophe such as that embodied by Obama and his progressive/socialist Administration.

Please also note that this catastrophe has nothing to do with race: It is strictly a behavioral assessment. America elected a pathologically deceptive socialist, progressive, America-hating, Marxist-revolutionary, with strong Islamic ties and sentiments.

I would love to now see the strong American patriot and true conservative, Dr. Ben Carson’s Presidential performance. It would be significantly reparative of Obama’s damage to America, it would also restore honor and integrity to the White House and perhaps to our entire Nation.

America Cannot Survive Treason From Within

America Cannot Survive Treason From Within

The following quote is commonly attributed to Cicero, but scholars report not being able to find it in his writings. Although some scholars have said that it sounds like something Cicero would have written, the  authorship of this quote is in question.

While the authorship of the quote may be in question, the truth of this message is certainly not.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

― Marcus Tullius Cicero

Black America Damaged By Liberal Politics

February 21, 2015

Black America Damaged By Liberal Politics.

Jason L. Riley has written a book that takes progressive/liberal policies to task for wreaking havoc upon America’s Black population. The book is entitled: Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder For Blacks.

This is a book that all of America must read.

Mr. Riley, a black man, has recently given an important address at Hillsdale College. This address has been adapted and published by Hillsdale’s own Imprimis Press.

The title of this presentation relates to race and law-enforcement relations. However, it is a far more encompassing treatment of the decline of Black America, and more.

I urge you to take time to read this definitive article about the damages of liberal politics.

Once you have read it, can you also see that the same liberal politics that have badly damaged America’s Black population, have also damaged all Americans. Can you see that these political policies (destructive reward systems) have therefore lead the ongoing decline in our entire socioculture?

Can you see that the motivation for these damaging liberal social policies is not exclusively a product of “liberal guilt” about America’s historical treatment of its black populations, as suggested by Mr. Riley. Many, myself included, have long argued that liberal politicians have used various entitlements and favors to minority populations as a well-known method of securing their votes and extending their own political power.

I will not absolve pandering liberal politicians of their ethical shortcomings by invoking some mythical sense of “misguided guilt”.

I hope you will send this Imprimis article on to your friends. Please consider also including your liberal friends, as well.

V. Thomas Mawhinney, 2/21/15

P.S., Thanks to John Plume for sending me notification of this article.  I also thank him for stimulating me to make time to read this Imprimis article, already languishing in my “read soon”stack of literature.

I Agree With Michael Savage: Obama Is A Marxist and You Need To Know Why!

I Agree With Michael Savage: Obama Is A Marxist Trying to Destroy America!

I Thank John Plume for sending this Washington Times article to me.

Michael Savage can be off-putting to some, but I think he is right on the money on this matter. So does Jeffrey T. Kuhner, the author of this very powerful article.

This is another”must-read” for those who love America and wish to improve it in ways intended by our Founding Fathers.

Please invest the time to inform yourself about this extraordinarily important matter.

“Please Do Not Feed The Animals, They May Grow Dependent”

March 4, 2012

Please Do Not Feed The Animals, They May Grow Dependent”

"The Major Difference between Genius and Stupidity --- is Genius has
 its Limitations". 
"Isn't It Ironic? The food stamp program, part of the Department of 
Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount 
of food stamps ever". 
"Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, 
asks us to "please do not feed the animals" because the animals may 
grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves". 
I thank former high school classmate, John Plume, for sending this message to me. 
This is but one illustration of American Governmental psychotic thinking.

Insula – A Latvian Memoir

February 5, 2011

Insula – A Latvian Memoir

As a young boy growing up in St. Joseph, Michigan,  I knew some of the kids that had immigrated to my town from war-torn Germany and that region. I never fully appreciated what they had suffered and survived until later in my life.  I have come to greatly admire these individuals, and so many like them, who lost so much and had to flee their homelands in search of  a better life.  Nearly all of these boys and girls that I knew quickly learned English, did very well in school, conducted themselves honorably and became model citizens of America.

This was a time in America when immigration was done by the rule of law. It was also a time when citizens, churches, schools, and communities volunteered to assist the new immigrants to become more fully  acculturated Americans. This coordinated approach worked very well and its proud legacy has been a marvelous benefit to all concerned.

John Plume was one of these immigrants.  He graduated from our high school in 1960 and went on to  live a vigorous and productive life ever since.

I hope you will read the following and visit John’s historical projects at:

The following is a quote from John’s Webpage.

Insula – A Latvian Memoir

 Insula: A Latvian Memoir contains stories of people who fled from the Soviet regime during World War II. It tells of their flight and survival during the war and their life as refugees in a Displaced Persons Assembly Center “Insula,” near Berchtesgaden, Germany, between 1945 and 1949.

In 1944, thousands of Latvians fled their Soviet-occupied homeland and the brutalities of World War II. They sacrificed their careers, homes, and possessions in order to seek freedom.

After the war in 1945, there were more than 100,000 Latvians among the millions of refugees in Germany living in 300 refugee camps established by UNRRA and later managed by IRO in the American and occupations zones.

More than two dozen authors tell their emotional experiences of leaving home, facing the dangers of wartime travel, living conditions in Nazi Germany, and survival of Allied aerial bombardments. 

There are hundreds of photographs showing the crowded living conditions in a refugee camp. Regardless of the uncertain future, these refugees did not fall into despair but showed determination to survival by organizing self-governance, establishing basic services of food distribution, utilities, security, education and cultural activities.

Best Wishes to John Plume and for his work!

V. Thomas Mawhinney, Ph.D.
