The Conquest Of America by Illegal Destructive Immigration

The Conquest Of America by Illegal Destructive Immigration

The following article goes to the heart of one of the most constructive and destructive forces in cultural evolution. With respect to modern America, as well the rest of Western Culture, self-destruction will be our legacy.

The following article by Michael Barone is spot-on.

Obama is looking to gather new Hyspanic votes to increase his game-plan of transforming our culture into the Socialist Republic of America.

VTM, 5/16/11

Barack Obama’s immigration speech in El Paso May 10 was an exercise in electioneering and hypocrisy. Hypocrisy because while Obama complained about “politicians” blocking comprehensive immigration bills, he was one of them himself.

In 2007, when such a bill was backed by a lame duck Republican president and had bipartisan backing from Senate heavyweights Edward Kennedy and Jon Kyl, Sen. Obama voted for union-backed amendments that Kennedy and Kyl opposed as bill-killers.

In 2009 and 2010, President Obama acquiesced in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to pass cap-and-trade and bypass immigration and in Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s decision not to bring an immigration bill to the floor.

Both times the votes were probably there to pass a bill. Obama did not lift a finger to help.

But that did not stop the president who is constantly calling for civility to heap scorn on those who seek stronger enforcement. “They’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat,” he said to laughter from the largely Latino audience. “Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied.”

Was that on the teleprompter, or was it ad-libbed? In either case, Obama was showing his contempt for those who bitterly cling to the idea that the law should be enforced.

That’s no way to assemble the bipartisan coalition necessary to pass an immigration bill.

It’s obvious that nothing like the legalization (opponents say “amnesty”) provisions considered in 2007 can pass in this Congress. They can never pass the Republican House, where Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith is a longstanding opponent and Speaker John Boehner will not schedule a bill not approved in committee.

Nor will this Congress pass the most attractive proposal Obama mentioned, the Dream Act, providing a path to legalization for those brought in illegally as children who enroll in college or serve in the military. That failed last December in a more Democratic Senate and won’t pass now.

Some new approach is needed, and Obama did little to point the way. One idea, advanced by a bipartisan Brookings Institution panel, is a bill that would strengthen enforcement and would shift the U.S. away from low-skill and toward high-skill immigration.

Canada and Australia have done this to their great benefit. And with a sluggish economy it makes little sense, as current law does, to give preference to low-skill siblings of minimum wage workers rather than to engineering and science Ph.D.s. We need more job creators, not more job seekers.

Obama: Destroying America

April 22, 2010

Obama: Destroying America

I will take a break from my stuff on psychology and culture to share the following letter written by an American Hero. He tells you the truth about President Obama. His letter is authentic and  has been verified by snopes.com.  I checked there to be certain.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/haroldestes.asp     Not Edited in any way….VERIFIED Authentic

A WW II Battleship sailor tells Obama to shape up or ship out !
This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter  to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

Dear President Obama,

    My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year.  People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate.  Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.
You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
” We’re no longer a Christian nation”
” America is arrogant” – (Your wife even
announced to the world,” America is mean-
spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching
that nonsense to 23 generations of our
war dead buried all over the globe who
died for no other reason than to free a
whole lot of strangers from tyranny and
hopelessness.)
I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you.  To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”

Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British?  Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War?  I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination.  You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American.  If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue .  You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight?  You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing.  I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son.  Do your job.  When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him.  But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out.  The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy.  That’s not our greatest threat.  Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle..

Sincerely,
Harold B. Estes

End Of Quote

I continually ask myself why Obama would do the things that he has done: a ruinous health care bill, Cap and trade on the way, moving to close Guantanamo, flagrant  gays in the military, progressives on the Supreme court (another is coming soon), trying 9/11 terrorists in New York, stating that our elderly should turn to hospice, and much more…just you wait and see. 

 I am convinced that President Obama and his people are purposefully trying to destroy traditional America.

One could argue that it is inexperience and/or naivety that are driving his actions,  but inexperience and naivety could never show the consistency of the force destructive to our sociocultural being that he is unleashing. Perhaps he is naive and it is those who pull his puppet strings who account for the destructive consistency that I see. Whatever the source, the destructive internal force, funneled through President Obama,  is nothing like anyone who has ever lived in America has ever seen before.

We must now vote all corrupt and destructive politicians out of office or we will soon see the end of this great American dream.

“Catastrophe”

March 1, 2010

Catastrophe”

I am reading Dick Morris & Eileen McGann’s Book, Catastrophy…And How to Fight Back.  So far I am impressed with the documentation as well as their straight-forward writing style. There are plenty of graphics that are also clear and very informational.

on p. 24, he notes that “historically, the adjective ‘socialist’ has referred to people who believe that the government should own the means of production”.

He then states on p. 25, ” In modern geopolitics, however, the term ‘socialist’ refers broadly to the Social Democratic ideology followed by the left-leaning political parties of Western Europe, who want to expand the role of government in their countries. They want to establish a broader cradle-to-grave social welfare system and to widen the influence of public institutions”

He notes that the best way to judge where any particular nation is on the scale of socialism to capitalism, is to calculate that nations percent of GDP derived from governmental spending.

He then notes that before president Obama’s spending proposals, the total government spending of the U.S. was 36.4.%.  Eight major nations are more socialistic than we are (Japan 37.5%, Canada 40.1%, United Kingdom 43.7 %, Netherlands 47.1%, Germany 47.5%, Italy 48.6%. France 54.0%., and  Sweden 57.0%).

Morse then provides a table of calculations ( p. 25) which factor in the additional governmental spending proposed under Obama and raises the percent of U.S. government spending of GDP to 49.4%.  

Under President Obama’s spending (stimulus package, supplemental appropriations, health care) we shoot up to near the head of the socialist class! We  are just ahead of Italy, only to be surpassed by France and Sweden.

Wow! If we allow Obama to continue on his merry spending program, we will soon be able to claim our position as the #1 socialist nation among our peers. Just wonderful……..

Thankfully, he concludes by relieving my civic conscience. He assures that calling Obama’s spending programs,”socialist is no political slur. It’s a simple description”.

I am now greatly relieved! How about you?

“This is nuts”—Charles Krauthammer

This is nuts”–Charles Krauthammer

I hope you will read the following article by columnest Charles Krauthammer.

Obama’s Gitmo obsession is not rooted in the real world

By Charles Krauthammer

WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, Nigerian would-be bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was indicted by a Michigan grand jury for attempted murder and sundry other criminal charges. The previous day, the State Department announced that his visa had been revoked. The system worked.

 Well, it did for Abdulmutallab. What he lost in flying privileges he gained in Miranda rights. He was singing quite freely when seized after trying to bring down Northwest Flight 253 over Detroit. But the Obama administration decided to give him a lawyer and the right to remain silent. We are now forced to purchase information from this attempted terrorist in the coin of leniency. Absurdly, Abdulmutallab is now in control.

And this is no ordinary information. He was trained by al-Qaeda in Yemen, and just days after he was lawyered up and shut up, the U.S. was forced to close its embassy in Yemen because of active threats from the same people who had trained and sent Abdulmutallab.

 This is nuts. Even if you wanted ultimately to try him as an ordinary criminal, he could have been detained in military custody — and thus subject to military interrogation — without prejudicing his ultimate disposition. After all, every Guantanamo detainee was first treated as an enemy combatant and presumably interrogated. But some (most notoriously Khalid Sheik Mohammed) are going to civilian trial. That determination can be made later.

 John Brennan, President Obama’s counterterrorism adviser, professes an inability to see any “downsides” to treating Abdulmutallab as an ordinary criminal — with a right to remain silent — a view with which 71 percent of likely voters sensibly disagree.

 The administration likes to defend itself by invoking a Bush precedent: Wasn’t the shoe bomber treated the same way?

 Yes. And it was a mistake, but in the context of the time understandable. That context does not remotely exist today.

 Richard Reid struck three months after 9/11. The current anti-terror apparatus was not in place. Remember: This was barely a month after President Bush authorized the creation of military commissions and before that system had been even set up. Moreover, the Pentagon at the time was preoccupied with the Afghan campaign that brought down the Taliban in two months. The last major Taliban city, Kandahar, fell just two weeks before Reid tried to ignite his shoe on an airplane.

 To be sure, after a few initial misguided statements, Obama did get somewhat serious about the Christmas Day attack. First, he instituted high-level special screening for passengers from 14 countries, the vast majority of which are Muslim with significant Islamist elements. This is the first rational step away from today’s idiotic random screening and toward, yes, a measure of profiling — i.e., focusing on the population most overwhelmingly likely to be harboring a suicide bomber.

Obama also sensibly suspended all transfers of Yemenis from Guantanamo. Nonetheless, Obama insisted on repeating his determination to close the prison, invoking his usual rationale of eliminating a rallying cry and recruiting tool for al-Qaeda.

 Imagine that Guantanamo were to disappear tomorrow, swallowed in a giant tsunami. Do you think there’d be any less recruiting for al-Qaeda in Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, London?

 Jihadism’s list of grievances against the West is not only self-replenishing but endlessly creative. Osama bin Laden’s 1998 fatwa commanding universal jihad against America cited as its two top grievances our stationing of troops in Saudi Arabia and Iraqi suffering under anti-Saddam sanctions.

Today, there are virtually no U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia. And the sanctions regime against Iraq was abolished years ago. Has al-Qaeda stopped recruiting? Ayman al-Zawahiri often invokes Andalusia in his speeches. For those not steeped in the multivolume lexicon of Islamist grievances, Andalusia refers to Iberia, lost by Islam to Christendom — in 1492.

 This is a fanatical religious sect dedicated to establishing the most oppressive medieval theocracy and therefore committed to unending war with America not just because it is infidel but because it represents modernity with its individual liberty, social equality (especially for women) and profound tolerance (religious, sexual, philosophical). You going to change that by evacuating Guantanamo?

Nevertheless, Obama will not change his determination to close Guantanamo. He is too politically committed. The only hope is that perhaps now he is offering his “recruiting” rationale out of political expediency rather than real belief. With suicide bombers in the air, cynicism is far less dangerous to the country than naivete.
