UPDATE: As I Have Posted Before About Alex Mooney’s Votes for Illegal Aliens and Abortions, Now He Flip Flops on the war on EPA to Fight for Coal – Mooney Blocks Jeff Werner From His Facebook Page Because of the Truth – Alex Mooney Is The Worst Choice You Can Ever Make!!!!!

As I get updated information and facts that may be disputable in nature from information provided me in the past, I will update with that information, Alex has a passable energy record, but not one of excellence, his votes on Energy are marginal at best, but as I always say, if someone else comes to me with more facts, I will always put that side of it in as well:

 

Alex Mooney again is fibbing to the voters of West Virginia, in this article, you can see Charlotte Lane calling him out for flip flopping.  This is not uncommon for Mooney as he will bend you over backwards  to get your vote.  Just like what he did in Maryland, with his lies about a possible future run for State office or Congress with the 200k he raised during an exploratory campaign while working for Roscoe Bartlett, he took that money over to West Virginia to run for Congress instead.  Sure Alex Mooney likes to sue people for whatever they say, but I am protected and he can try whatever he wants, the facts remain, I have the goods on him.

Conservative favorite in W.Va. race accused by foe of flip-flopping on coal

So I went to Alex Mooney’s facebook page under 2 accounts posting the facts about him regarding his votes for Illegal Aliens and Abortions, and immediately he removed them and blocked me.  Alex, if you have nothing to hide, than why are you blocking my posts about your work in Maryland and why you were forced to resign in Maryland?  What are you afraid of, the truth coming out?

So here is what I posted to Alex Mooney on his facebook page that he blocked:

Jeff Werner Alex Mooney is a fake. Do not believe what this man is selling. If you want all the specific details on the things he has done as Maryland state senator please message me. There are better choices than him who are true west Virginians and not a transplant from Maryland who was forced to resign as md GOP chair and who is anti coal in which you can find those statements by googling them while he was Maryland state senator, Like I said, please do not vote for a Alex Mooney. Like I said, please vote for a true West Virginian and not someone who has lived here barely a year and knows nothing of our needs. He was not up front on questionnaires that he is pro life yet he voted for abortions in Maryland for mentally handicapped women. Is that pro life. No it’s not. Does he stand against amnesty for those here illegally breaking laws? No. He also sided with bob ehrlich on fee increases on Maryland tax payers which is actually tax increases. Does he stand with rural and natural resources, no because he is anti coal industry and anti constitution with his vote for illegal aliens which violated the 1996 federal immigration reform act which states, no post secondary education would be afforded to foreign nationals or illegal Aliens at the cost to Americans. So Mooney is anti constitution right? Mooney is the worst choice u can make for congress for district 2. Vote for a true and constitutional West Virginian who can be a strong leader for us in congress. and not someone who has lived here barely a year and knows nothing of our needs. And failed in New Hampshire and Maryland. Does he stand against amnesty for those here illegally breaking laws? No. He voted to give illegal aliens in Maryland in state tuition at colleges in Maryland on the backs of Maryland tax payers in 2003 which was vetoed by republican governor Robert ehrlich. He also sided with ehrlich on fee increases on Maryland tax payers which is actually tax increases. Mooney is the worst choice u can make for congress for district 2. We need A true and constitutional West Virginian who can be a strong leader for us in congress and not someone who was chased out of Maryland because of his failures. And failed in New Hampshire and Maryland. Does he stand against amnesty for those here illegally breaking laws? No. He voted to give illegal aliens in Maryland in state tuition at colleges in Maryland on the backs of Maryland tax payers in 2003 which was vetoed by republican governor Robert ehrlich. He also sided with ehrlich on fee increases on Maryland tax payers which is actually tax increases. Mooney is the worst choice u can make for congress for district 2. Mooney was exiled from Maryland not because he wanted to maintain his freedoms it was because all of the republican central committees wanted him out as md GOP chair. They wanted nothing more to do with his failure as a leader. You can google Alex mooney resigns. You can also visit my website for more information regarding alex mooney or google jill king and alex mooney and doug gill and alex mooney, jeff quinton as well….

Here is Alex Mooney’s facebook page, please feel free to go out there and share the truth about this man who is nothing more than a Carpetbagger.  I implore all my Maryland friends to do this.  https://www.facebook.com/MooneyforWV
UPDATE:  Apparently Alex did do some good votes on Energy and some Coal aspects, but he did not get the support of the Miners and Industry and as you can read in the above article by Charlotte Lane for Congress, she challenged him on his flip flopping of his views.
Here is what a friend of mine received for me:

Alex voted at least five times against capping or reducing greenhouse gas emissions (SB 154, 3/20/06; SB 154, 3/31/06; SB 309, 3/24/08; SB 278, 3/2/09; SB 278, 4/13/09) • Alex Mooney sponsored the amendment to invalidate solar energy requirements for utility companies by making them optional. (SB277, 4/1/10) • Alex Mooney voted against increasing the percentage of solar energy electricity that utility companies are required to purchase. (SB277, 4/2/10; SB277, 4/12/10) • Alex Mooney voted against requiring electricity companies to increase the percentage of retail electricity sales coming from renewable energy sources. (HB375, 4/7/08) • Alex voted to expand the ability to coal mine on lands with “dormant mineral interests.” (SB 288, 03/24/10) • Alex voted to enable mining to continue on lands that have been designated as part of an “agricultural district” (SB 133, 02/22/08) • Alex voted for an excise tax exemption for vehicles used in coal mining (SB 511, 03/09/00)

Who Are The Real Law-Breakers Now?

 

Rumors abound that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is weighing limiting illegal alien deportations even further.  Yikes!  Deportations are almost at record lows now!  Johnson’s current policy (really Obama’s policy) of counting Mexicans who put one foot across the border, then sending them back to Mexico counted as an “Official Deportation is well, as bad as telling the American People “If You Like Your Health Insurance, You Can Keep It”.  

 

One rumor has Jeh Johnson allowing illegals who have re-entered the country after they have been deported previously, and those who are fugitives from immigration proceedings, as being exempt from deportation. 

 

Good chance this new policy will be announced on May Day, May 1, 2014  when CASA of Maryland, the SEIU, the National Council of La Raza (The Race) and other illegal alien facilitating organizations converge on the White House demanding the elimination of the federal ICE Secure Communities Program and all deportation activities again illegal aliens.

22 Senators Remind Obama That Nullifying Immigration Laws Threatens Constitutional System

 

On Thursday, April 24, 22 Senators who support the Rule of Law in this country sent Obama an in your face letter demanding that he stop his reckless, lawless, whimsical  policies of voiding U.S. immigration laws. 

 

The original Gang of Eight drafters of the Senate Amnesty legislation, including Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) were all unable to locate a writing instrument in time and thus did not sign the letter.

See the Senate letter to the President in the link below.   I love the last paragraph.  “You swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.  We therefore ask you to uphold and to carry out the duties required by the Constitution and entrusted to you by the American people”.  

 

This will look lovely when framed and hung on a wall in the future Obama Presidential Library!  My checkbook is ready to help build that library, the earlier the better.

It Must Be Spring, Cause The Daffodils, Honey Bees and Day Laborers Are In Popping Up Everywhere! 

 

 

Once again the illegal alien support group CASA of Maryland is spending taxpayer dollars running ads in the Gazette Newspaper (see attached) trying to hoodwink honest Marylanders into hiring illegal alien day laborers.  “Need help with a home or garden project?  Hire Honest, Reliable, Professional Workers!”.   The Shady Grove and Wheaton Illegal Alien Worker Centers are highlighted in this ad.

 

Let’s look at the facts: 

 

“Honest” – The workers, 90 plus percent Hispanic and mostly illegal aliens, arrived or continued their stay in the U.S. without proper authorization.  They are illegal aliens who CASA, the Montgomery County Government and the Federal Government have little or no information about. 

 

It’s a wonderful “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy between CASA and the County Government.  They may be hard-working illegals could be rapists, murderers, child molesters.  Just the type of person you want in close proximity to your family and friends or in your home.

 

“Reliable” – Well they do show up at the taxpayer funded CASA of Maryland run sites looking for work.  But usually not at Federal Court for their deportation hearings!  Workers get a place to hang out, bathrooms, snacks, television, movies, etc.   Workers are paid in cash by those that hire them.  So the illegal alien worker and the hiring party (individual or company) pay no federal, state, local, social security taxes, workers compensation, unemployment insurance, etc., as would a legal worker and honest employer.

 

“Professional”   – Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Most only speak Spanish and are uneducated and unskilled.  They are also NOT licensed or bonded like a legitimate company, so if they destroy your house or get hurt doing it, its all on you in the court room.  You have been warned.

 

Please contact the Gazette Editor, Doug Tallman and demand Truth in Advertising.  The Gazette must stop running CASA of Maryland ads which promote illegal activities and jeopardize the safety and well-being of Montgomery County Citizens.

“Amnesty for Illegals Can’t be Defended”

April 21, 2014

By Raynard Jackson

NNPA Columnist

 

I am totally perplexed by Republicans who advocate amnesty for those who entered the U.S. illegally.  We Republicans are supposed to be the party of law and order,  a party that stands on clearly defined principles. Let’s cut through the pompous rhetoric: The issue of amnesty is only about cheap labor.  All the other arguments are merely background noise.

 

With the national unemployment rate just under 8 percent, how can you argue that illegals are doing jobs that Americans refuse to do?  With all the unemployed engineers (partly because of the shutdown of NASA’s Space Shuttle program), how do you justify increasing the number of H-1B visas?  The special visa allows companies to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations for up to six years. How can six years still be considered temporary?

 

How do you explain to a kid in Virginia that he or she has to pay out-of-state tuition to attend the University of Maryland while but a student in the country illegally is allowed to pay in-state tuition?  Why should someone in the country illegally be able to obtain a benefit that even an American citizen can’t have? Aren’t these Republicans supporting discrimination against American citizens in their lust of the Hispanic voter?

 

Linking amnesty to winning the Hispanic vote is not a winning or sensible strategy.  One has nothing to do with the other.  There is no unanimity within the Hispanic community on the issue of amnesty, therefore why are some operatives linking this issue to the future of the Republican Party? One can be against amnesty without being mean and nasty.

 

But to equate supporting amnesty as a prerequisite to proving that you are not mean and hateful is an insult to our intelligence. As if this weren’t bad enough, can someone please explain to me the logic of any Black person supporting amnesty when the Black unemployment rate is in double digits?

 

We can have honest disagreements on the issue of amnesty; but please don’t give me the perverted reasoning supporters of amnesty have been using:  “it’s an act of love,” “they are only looking for a better life,”  “it’s not their fault.”

 

But these same proponents who want to justify ignoring the law based on some irrational, emotional tick refuse to apply the same empathy towards “Pookie” and “LaQueesha,” who  represent inner city America.

 

When “Pookie” gets arrested for carrying a recreational amount of crack and get sentenced to a mandatory minimum of 20 years for a first time, non-violent offense, where are these Republican thespians advocating for an empathetic approach to law enforcement?  When  a Black woman in Florida fires a warning shot in the air to stop an abusive former husband from beating her and gets 20 years mandatory minimum, where are the Republican voices of empathy?

 

If we are going to claim to be a nation of laws, then we can’t allow emotion to cause the unequal distribution of justice to continue.  If your basis for giving amnesty to illegals is “their intent”—they only want to make a better life; then how can you not apply the same logic to “Pookie” and “LaQueesha?”  Can you not make the same argument that they only want to make a better life for themselves and their families?

 

Pro-amnesty Republicans sound like a bunch of liberals when they refuse to advocate for the enforcement of current immigration law because they claim to know the “intent” of the law breaker. These same pro amnesty members of the House and Senate have been relentless in accusing President Obama for not being trustworthy on health care (“you can keep your own doctor”), but are willing to work with and trust him on the enforcement side of the immigration debate.

 

If you can’t trust Obama on healthcare, how can you trust him on immigration?

O’Malley takes aim at deportations

Governor orders a change in policy on federal ‘detainer’ requests at Baltimore jail

By John Fritze, The Baltimore Sun
6:35 PM EDT, April 18, 2014

advertisement
Gov. Martin O’Malley announced Friday that the Baltimore City Detention Center will no longer automatically honor requests from the federal government to hold immigrants for deportation — making the state-run jail one of only a relative handful in the country to take a more discerning approach on such requests.

The move is intended to reduce deportations of immigrants who don’t have criminal records under a federal program called Secure Communities.

The program, run by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is supposed to identify repeat and violent offenders for deportation. But a Baltimore Sun analysis this year found that more than 40 percent of those removed had no prior criminal record — a far greater share than the national average.

Baltimore joins California, Connecticut, the District of Columbia and others in reviewing requests from ICE to hold immigrants for up to 48 hours beyond when they would ordinarily be released.
Advocates say those “detainer” requests are often filed on immigrants who have deep ties in the community and no criminal record.

Under the new policy, which begins immediately, Baltimore will honor the requests only in cases where an immigrant has been charged or convicted of a felony, three or more misdemeanors or a “serious” misdemeanor — roughly the population Secure Communities was originally intended to target.

Those wanted only for immigration violations are to be released from the jail once they have satisfied the requirements of their pending charge.

“We will focus our efforts on complying with ICE detainers when there is an actual threat to the public’s safety,” the governor said in a statement. “No family should be ripped apart because the Republican Congress can’t come to the table and reach a reasonable compromise on comprehensive immigration reform.”

The decision is a significant step for O’Malley, who is considering a run for president in 2016.

The Democratic governor already had received praise from advocates for signing a law in 2011 to allow undocumented immigrants to attend state colleges and universities at in-state tuition rates, and for backing a measure last year to let them apply for drivers licenses.

The head of the state’s largest immigrant rights group applauded O’Malley’s announcement Friday.

“Martin O’Malley exemplifies the best principles of great leaders — honoring diversity, taking leadership when others fail, and executing decisive action when needed,” said Gustavo Torres, executive director of CASA de Maryland.
Opponents said the move could allow immigrants who have criminal backgrounds to be set free rather than being turned over to ICE for further investigation. They also said the decision makes it harder for the federal government to enforce existing immigration laws.

Those affected, critics point out, broke the law by entering the United States illegally in the first place.

“It has nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with obstructing enforcement of immigration laws,” said Jessica M. Vaughan, with the Center for Immigration Studies. The Washington-based think tank supports tighter immigration controls.

“Marylanders should be outraged that Gov. O’Malley has put the interests of immigration scofflaws ahead of their legitimate interest in having immigration laws enforced, which protects jobs and public safety,” she said.
Under Secure Communities, immigration officials access the fingerprints of everyone who is arrested, anywhere in the country, be it for murder or driving without a license. The Department of Homeland Security checks those prints against a database of people known to be in the country illegally.

When DHS computers turn up a match, federal agents ask the local jail to hold the immigrant for up to 48 hours beyond the time he or she would otherwise be released so a pickup can be arranged.
Under U.S. law, immigration violations are often civil matters, not criminal offenses.

ICE officials have pointed to cases in which the program has identified criminals — and they have said repeatedly that the agency’s priority remains repeat and violent offenders.

In response to O’Malley’s announcement, the agency released a statement Friday saying it “will continue to work cooperatively with law enforcement partners throughout Maryland as the agency seeks to enforce its priorities through the identification and removal of convicted criminals and others who are public safety threats.”

O’Malley’s decision follows an exchange of letters with Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson after The Sun published its stories.

The governor wrote Johnson in February seeking an explanation for Maryland’s high numbers. In a separate letter to Johnson on Friday, the governor wrote that his “concerns about ICE’s enforcement priorities are undiminished.”
Most counties in Maryland honor the ICE requests.

State Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has concluded that compliance is optional. Gansler wrote in October that federal rules allow “state and local jurisdictions to exercise discretion when determining how to respond to individual detainers.”

The General Assembly considered legislation this year to delineate when a county could honor the request and when it would be required to release an immigrant. The O’Malley administration did not take a position on the bill. It failed to advance.

O’Malley’s move is limited to the Baltimore jail, which the state manages, but the decision opens the door to county officials elsewhere.

Sirine Shebaya, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland who has followed the issue closely, said the decision could set an important precedent for the rest of the state.

“This is a huge step forward that we hope will lead other counties to follow suit as we continue to advocate for the enactment of a similar policy statewide,” she said.

Officials in Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Frederick and Prince George’s counties either could not be reached late Friday or were not immediately prepared to respond.

Unlike warrants, immigration detainers are not signed by judges and meet no standard of probable cause — and several federal courts have started to look at them critically. A U.S. District Court judge in Oregon ruled last week that the detainers violate the 4th Amendment, prompting several jurisdictions there to announce they would no longer honor them.

O’Malley’s decision comes as hope has dwindled for Congress to pass legislation this year to broadly address an immigration system that advocates and critics alike describe as “broken.”
President Barack Obama has instructed Johnson to review immigration enforcement policies and suggest ways to make them “more humane.”

Democrats are scrambling ahead of the midterm election to ease concerns from some Hispanic groups that the Obama administration has not done enough to stem the deportations of immigrations who could qualify for legal residency under a bipartisan immigration overhaul approved by the Senate last year.

I Know I Have Been Away For A While, But…….

I will be returning to updating and posting political updates on my home State of West Virginia, and Congressional District 2, as soon as possible.  I have been extremely busy outside of politics lately and have had to re focus my energy on those things in need the most.  Hang tight my large audience of readers, I will return shortly.

Help Save Maryland – Letter to Editor Regarding Amnesty Lovers Jeb Bush & George Will

Help Save Maryland – Letter to Editor Regarding Amnesty Lovers Jeb Bush & George Will

 

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: ‘Mainstream’ GOP picks spell disaster

I think I finally understand why conservative commentator George Will promotes “mainstream” GOP presidential candidates such as former Florida Governor Jeb Bush for 2016. 

 

Guys like Mr. Bush make Mr. Will feel warm and fuzzy and safe from the serious challenges that face our nation, starting with immigration and education.
To Mr. Will, Mr. Bush’s recent “act of love” description of illegal immigration was probably better than a cup of hot cocoa on a cold night at the ballpark (“Jeb Bush: Illegal immigration is an ‘act of love’ — it’s ‘not a felony,’” Web, April 7).  Neither Mr. Will nor Mr. Bush, however, grasps the full implications for the GOP — and more importantly for the nation — of granting amnesty to 20 million or more illegal immigrants hiding in plain sight in our communities.  Overcrowded schools, bankrupt hospitals, declining social services and shrinking employment opportunities for American blacks and legal Hispanics are only the tip of the iceberg.
I recently came across an old TV clip on YouTube from a 1960s show hosted by Frank Sinatra. Sinatra was wonderful, singing his top hits in that smooth, easy-listening style that made him one of the greatest singers ever.  Everything was fine until that week’s guest singer walked out on stage.  You could feel the energy and power in the guest’s voice and movements on the stage. Sinatra went from chairman of the board to elder statesman in a heartbeat. The singer was a young man named Elvis Presley.
Mr. Will and Mr. Bush, perhaps you should watch this historic video clip — and think of a newcomer on the GOP block, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Suddenly I am feeling all warm, fuzzy and safe.

HAS THE PASSOVER CELEBRATION FREED VA REP ERIC CANTOR FROM HIS DREAMS OF AMNESTY?

 

 
“Congressman Cantor Issues Statement On Phone Call With President Obama”

WASHINGTON, D.C. 

 
Earlier this afternoon, President Obama called Congressman Eric Cantor (VA-7) about immigration: “Today, President Obama called me to discuss his desire for
comprehensive immigration reform.  The President called me hours after he issued a partisan statement which attacked me and my fellow House Republicans and which
indicated no sincere desire to work together.  After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done.
You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in a serious dialogue. I told the President the same thing I told him the last time we spoke.  House

Republicans do not support Senate Democrat’s immigration bill and amnesty efforts, and it will not be considered in the House.  I also reiterated to the
President there are other issues where we can find common ground, build trust and get America working again.  I hope the President can stop his partisan
messaging, and begin to seriously work with Congress to address the issues facing working middle class Americans that are struggling to make ends meet in
this economy.”

“COMPETITION FOR THEE, BUT NOT FOR ME”     – -  ANN COULTER ON AMNESTY SUPPORTERS

April 9, 2014

 

Between having Republican presidential candidates fly to Las Vegas to kiss his ring, billionaire Sheldon Adelson has managed to fit in time to talk Sen. Lindsey Graham into sponsoring a bill banning Internet gambling.

As you may know, Sheldon Adelson is a CASINO OWNER. Internet gambling would compete with his casino business.

On the other hand, when it comes to the services Adelson isn’t selling, but buying — low-skilled workers — he’s for unbridled competition, preferring not to limit the supply even to people who are legally in the United States. (Weirdly, so is Lindsey Graham!)

Adelson is a big backer of amnesty, telling The Wall Street Journal: “It would be inhumane to send those people back, to send 12 million people out of this country. … So we’ve got to find a way, find a route for those people to get legal citizenship.”

As Milton Friedman said, “With some notable exceptions, businessmen favor free enterprise in general but are opposed to it when it comes to themselves.”

Adelson is an especially telling example of the self-interest of businessmen on immigration. His newspaper, Israel Today, the largest newspaper in Israel, is wildly patriotic on immigration (and everything else).

Israel Today has trumpeted the success of the 15-foot razor-wire fence along Israel’s 140-mile border with Egypt, triumphantly noting last August that, for the first time, “no infiltrations were recorded from the Egyptian border, compared to 193 from the same month last year.”

Adelson himself had suggested just such a policy to the Los Angeles Times last year, saying he wanted to “Put a big fence around our country.”

By “our country,” he, of course, meant Israel. In America, he wants illegal immigrants pouring across the border to provide him with an endless supply of cheap labor.

Recently, Israel has been “rounding up” African refugees, giving them $3,500 and plane tickets to Uganda, to encourage them to “self-deport.” Welcome to El Al Airlines. We’re about to begin pre-boarding for Flight 259, offering non-stop, one-way service to Kampala, Uganda. At this time we’d like to invite our premium-plus illegal immigrants to board.

Wait! I thought we couldn’t “round up” any illegal immigrants! I thought “self-deportation” was a laughable idea! Say, could Adelson buy The New York Times and start pushing those policies here?

For years, the cheap-labor lobby has told us: Immigrants are doing the work Americans simply will not do! We’re tired of people who know nothing about our business telling us to pay our workers more. Where are they when beds are unmade? Where are they when crops are rotting in the field? It’s not about how much we pay them per hour! Americans don’t want these jobs.

But in last week’s New York Times story about multimillionaire farmers who need taxpayer-subsidized cheap labor, the Times lost focus and forgot to lie. In one blockbuster sentence, the paper admitted that, last year, “the diminished supply of workers led average farm wages in the region to increase by roughly $1 an hour.”

I believe we have an Earth-shattering revelation there! In other words, people were willing to do the work — as soon as wages were raised. So, apparently, employers were not exploring every option to get workers, such as, for example, paying their employees ONE DOLLAR MORE.

In a catastrophic blunder of epic proportions, The New York Times had inadvertently stumbled across the laws of supply and demand.

Adelson might want to hang onto that Israeli citizenship, in case his preferred policy of amnesty ever does go through: His low-wage workers don’t have especially enlightened views of the Jewish people.

The Anti-Defamation League has been taking polls on anti-Semitism in America for decades. In 2013, the ADL reported that — “once again” — foreign-born Hispanics had the highest rates of anti-Semitic views: 36 percent compared with 14 percent of all Americans and 20 percent of African-Americans. This was an improvement over 2011, when 42 percent of foreign-born Hispanics were found to have anti-Semitic views.

How might America’s support for Israel be affected by having a populace that’s 30 or 40 percent Hispanic?

The importation of more than a million poor people to America every year also has the effect of admitting a fair number of terrorists. Among them: Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, Mohammad Hassan Hamdan, Nidal Hasan, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Najibullah Zazi, Sulejman Talovic, Peter Odighizuwa, Ali Hassan Abu Kamal, dozens of Somali terrorists living in Minnesota, Omar Abdel-Rahman and the 9/11 terrorists.

I would think that this country’s open-door policy toward terrorists would be of some concern to the owner of any Las Vegas casino — a well-known terrorist target.

They won’t be coming to kiss Adelson’s ring.

I was honored to participate in a counter rally with Maria Espinosa, Director of the Rememberance Project, Jack Oliver, Director of Floridians for Immigration Enforcement and other Texas, Florida and local volunteers on Wednesday on the National Mall during the so-called “Fast for Families” illegal aliens for amnesty rally. 

 

Seemed like the same old crew that I encountered at Lafayette Park across from the White House on Saturday.  The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) types were out in force again and were close in number to the core group of non-English speaking illegals trained to cheer and wave American flags.  Of course most of the event was in Spanish, I guess to keep the attention of the illegal aliens present. 

 

I did not realize that the SEIU had received permission from the U.S. Park Service to setup this massive tent on the Mall across from the stage for this event.  That is the location of the special illegal aliens and otherS who have decided not to eat, even though there is a nice hot dog vender stand walking distance from the tent. 

 

Vice  President Biden (I bet he stopped for a hot dog) has visited the tent as well as a slew of amnesty supporting members of Congress.  

 

Primarily Democrats conduct the tent pilgrimage but I would bet illegal alien leaning Republicans Eric Cantor (VA), Bob Goodlatte (VA), Buck McKeon (CA), Jeff Denham (CA), Mike Coffman (CO) and of course Renee Ellmers (NC) have dropped by to pay homage and wish the fasters luck (and advice on how to sneak an amnesty amendment into House legislation!).  

 

Not a huge crowded considering all the hype by the SEIU and the large buses used to transport the illegal aliens and their groupies around.  See bus photo.  Is this what the SEIU does with the Union Dues they collect???  Pimp my Bus??

 

 

 

 

 

What made the counter rally a true success was the very moving banners created by Maria Espinosa and her organization.  The banners had pictures of American Citizens from around the country who had been murdered by illegal aliens.  Thinks about it —- Needlessly  Murdered Americans versus some contrived SEIU Union stunt to get somebody/anybody to join their Union ranks, especially illegal aliens.  Was also quite sad to see Maria unroll a very long scroll of names and states of the murdered American Citizens.  Yes, unfortunately names of Marylanders were listed as we are a sanctuary state.   

 

Media Coverage – Once they saw our counter-rally slowing circling the event, the TV crews and others immediately abandoned their fixed stands recording the droning speakers on stage and walked over to interview our group.  Kudos to Telemundo for asking serious questions and later fact checking with Help Save Maryland BEFORE they aired the segment.  My favorite question of the day, “Do You Hate Hispanics?” as I’m standing there right next to Maria Espinosa.  Yikes.  (No Nancy Pelosi was not asking the question)

 

Worst speaker – a rep from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).  Must have made a wrong turn looking for the Martin Luther King Memorial and ended up on the SEIU stage giving a civil rights speech to a crowd of non-English speaking, law-breaking, illegal aliens.  Enjoyed watching the delayed cheers as the SEIU handlers prompted the audience at different intervals.

MARYLAND’S FUTURE?  IF STATE SENATOR VICTOR RAMIREZ AND DELEGATE ANA SOL GUTIERREZ HAVE THEIR WAY!

 

 

“California: A View of America’s Immigration Future”  by Heather MacDonald   

With the recent confirmation that immigration enforcement in the country’s interior is all but eviscerated, it is an opportune moment to assess America’s future if its immigration policies–de facto and de jure–remain unchanged. California provides a window into that future, since the transformation unleashed by the last three decades of mass immigration is further advanced there than anywhere else. Nearly 50 percent of all California births are now Hispanic, with the state’s Hispanic population almost equal to the white population.

The consequences of this demographic shift have been profound. In the 1950s and 1960s, the state led the nation in educational achievement. Today, with a majority Hispanic K-12 population and the largest concentration of English language learners in the country, California is at the bottom of the educational heap, barely distinguishable in its national test scores from such economic backwaters as Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana. 

 

Over a third of California eighth graders lack even the most rudimentary math skills; 28% are equally deficient in reading. The mathematics performance gap between Hispanic and white eighth graders has not budged since 1990, while the reading gap has narrowed only slightly since 1998.  

 

In 2013, Governor Jerry Brown pushed through a controversial law that redistributes tax dollars from successful schools to those with high proportions of English learners and low-income students. It remains to be seen whether this latest effort to close the achievement gap will prove more effective than its predecessors. Working against that possibility is Hispanics’ high drop-out rate–the highest in the state and nation–and their equally unmatched teen pregnancy rate.  

 

California spends vast sums each year trying to get more Hispanics into college–and keep them there. In 2009 alone, in an initiative to prepare more Hispanics for four-year programs, California spent $100 million on community college students…who then dropped out after their first year. Latino students’ rate of B.A. completion from the University of California and California State University is the lowest of all student groups and has slightly declined in recent years.

 

California’s economic future depends on attracting, and keeping, top talent. Since 2000, however, more college graduates have exited California than entered it, driven away in part by the high taxes required to sustain public services for the state’s low-skilled residents. Hispanics are the major consumers of government services and welfare. U.S.-born Hispanic households in California use cash welfare, food stamps, and housing assistance at twice the rate of U.S.-born non-Hispanic households. Immigrant welfare use is even higher. Four-fifths of households headed by an illegal Hispanic immigrant, and 61% of households headed by a legal Hispanic immigrant, use at least one welfare entitlement. No wonder Hispanics overwhelmingly favor big government welfare programs, including Obamacare, and the taxation necessary for those programs.

 

The vast majority of California’s Hispanic immigrants possess an admirable work ethic. They have stabilized some inner-city communities, such as South Central Los Angeles. But thanks to their lack of social capital, many of their children and grandchildren are getting sucked up into underclass culture. The Hispanic out-of-wedlock birth rate in California and the US is 53%–twice what it was in the black population in 1965, when Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote his prescient warning about the catastrophe of family breakdown. The incarceration rate of Mexican Americans in California shoots up eight-fold between the first and second generations, to equal the black incarceration rate. Gang involvement is endemic in barrio schools, giving rise to a vast, taxpayer-supported army of anti-gang counselors serving the children of single mothers.  

 

The rule of law is severely challenged in California. Last year, Governor Jerry Brown signed a flurry of bills expanding illegal aliens’ rights and protections. Hispanics supported the laws, while a majority of whites opposed them. Though the granting of drivers licenses and the right to practice law to illegal aliens received more attention, the most insidious bill bans local jail officials from cooperating with federal immigration authorities. The federal Secure Communities Act requires jail officials to hold an illegal alien criminal when asked to do so by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, in order to give ICE the opportunity to take custody of the alien for possible deportation proceedings. Under California’s new Trust Act, however, local jail authorities must refuse ICE detainer requests for all but the most heinous felons. Your “garden variety” thief, shoplifter, graffiti vandal, drug dealer, or misdemeanor drunk driver must be jealously protected from ICE and allowed to return to the “community” with no worries about possible deportation. (California, apparently, doesn’t have enough criminals already and needs every last one of them.)  

 

In 2010, illegal immigration advocates loudly protested Arizona’s recently passed immigration statute, SB 1070. That law affirmed the authority of local police officers to inquire into a suspect’s immigration status if they had reason to believe that the suspect was in the country illegally. The Obama Administration characterized SB 1070 as an unconstitutional violation of the federal government’s authority over immigration matters and blocked the law in court. Now that California has passed an actual assault on federal immigration authority, however, the advocates are cheering and the Obama administration is looking the other way. (Of course, the irony is that the Trust Act is almost superfluous, since it’s so hard to interest ICE in the criminals that jail administrators actually do refer to it, as the Center for Immigration Studies recently documented.)  

 

Finally, there’s politics. The Democratic grip on the state appears unbreakable. California’s policies will likely become even more redistributionist if Latinos don’t start making faster economic and educational progress, predicts Larry Gerston, a political scientist at California State University, San Jose. It would be a mistake to rule such progress out, given Hispanics’ strong work ethic. But for the moment, the state presents a strong argument for shifting the country’s immigration policies towards high-skilled, educated foreigners who will not be a fiscal drain on already overburdened taxpayers.

Help Save Maryland – Lawless Amnesty Types Losing Steam

Subject: Help Save Maryland – Lawless Amnesty Types Losing Steam

 

 Help Save Maryland Crashes Amnesty Party in Lafayette Park

 

Special thanks to the Help Save Maryland supporters from MD and VA who took the time to come to DC Saturday afternoon to let the illegal alien community know up close and personal that Amnesty is not an option for criminal lawbreakers. 

 

I’m sure CASA of Maryland, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the other radical groups at Lafayette Park had to be quite disappointed at the low turnout for the DC event, part of a multi-state event to push Amnesty and lawlessness.  Other then Telemundo, there were no legitimate press/media covering the event.  None.  Shocking. 

 

PASS THIS NEWS ON TO THE VA GOP CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION WHICH IS TOYING WITH VISIONS OF AMNESTY.

 

It was a typical CASA/SEIU event with lots of white Spanish speaking handlers coaching a small group of illegal aliens who spoke little to zero English.  Many had those nice red CASA wool caps on.  Did not see what was provided in the standard CASA provided box lunch.   90% of the event was in Spanish.  There was a sprinkling of Georgetown students there. 

 

HSM members had some good conversations with many there, explaining our position on the rule of law, what national borders are and why we have them, why we think Amnesty is unfair to legal immigrants and more.  Even filled some folks in on the colorful flag we had flying below the large Gadsden (Don’t Tread on Me) Flag – It was our Maryland flag!

 

Highlights of the afternoon

 

(1) After we walked around and through the illegal alien gatherers and talked with Telemundo & some radical press folks, a couple of the El Jefe ( Spanish for the boss) types came over and asked if we were with Help Save Maryland. Nice to be recognized!  I believe they were SEIU leaders. 

 

(2) – This one guy from CASA was intent on showing me his CASA of Maryland ID card.  Not a clue why.  Maybe because he knows Maryland taxpayers actually fund the ID card and organization. I gave him a HSM business card in return.

 

Lowlights of the afternoon

 

(1) Was quite disappointed with the knowledge base and line of reasoning being utilized by the few Georgetown students and other young illegal aliens we met.   They just could not hold a conversation and defend the positions provided by CASA, SEIU and the other radical groups.  My favorite was that thousands of illegals die trying to cross the “militarized” southern border each year, so therefore we should open the border;  My other favorite, Why can’t you just show up in the U.S., get a job and just stay? Why would this make the unemployment situation worse for Black and Hispanic citizens? 

 

I think these Third World youngsters have no conception of the rule of law, economics or basic rights or wrongs.  Never taught it in the Third World countries they came from.  Certainly hanging out with CASA or SEIU types will not provide it.  Sadly, they are the “Dreamers” we give In-State College Tuition to as well as other taxpayer funded social services.  These are not the next generation of American leaders we want!   

 

(2) The CASA/SEIU “Jefes” found a Black Preacher to get up on the stage and rant about how Amnesty for illegals is the next Civil Rights movement in the United States.  Yikes.  More than half the small crowd had no idea what he was saying since he spoke in English.   He obviously came for the CASA of Maryland provided boxed lunch.  Did have on a nice black beret similar to what Che Guevara wore from time to time!

 

 

 

 “MILLIONAIRES NEED YOUR HELP!

 

Once again Ann Coulter hits it on the head.  Let’s make employers of Illegal Aliens foot the education and social service costs of their workers and extended families.

 

 

 

Millionaires need your help!

By: Ann Coulter
4/2/2014 05:36 PM

 

Last Sunday, the New York Times published a front-page article about the heartfelt need of California farmers for more illegal aliens.

 

The first tip-off that heinous public policy ideas were coming was that the Times introduced farmer Chuck Herrin, owner of a farm-labor contracting company, as a “lifelong Republican.” That’s Times-speak for “liberal.”

 

Herrin admitted that he employs a lot of illegal aliens and bitterly complained that they lived in fear of “Border Patrol and deportations.” (But, apparently, he doesn’t live in fear of admitting he’s violating our immigration laws.)

 

Sorry that running a country inconveniences you, Chuck.

 

He said his illegal alien employees deserved amnesty because if “we keep them here and not do anything for them once they get old, that’s really extortion.”

 

As the punch line goes, “What’s this ‘we,’ paleface?”

 

Taxpayers have been subsidizing Chuck Herrin’s underpayment of his illegal labor force for decades, with skyrocketing taxes to pay for schools, roads, bridges, food stamps, health care and so on. Now Herrin thinks “we” are supposed to support his illegal employees in their old age, too.

 

Here’s another idea: How about a federal law mandating that employers of illegal aliens take responsibility for the people they hire? Why is the taxpayer on the hook for illegal aliens’ food, housing and medical care, when Chuck Herrin got 100 percent of the profit from their cheap labor?

 

We don’t allow chemical companies to dump pollutants in rivers, walk away and then say, “If we dump chemicals in rivers and we don’t clean them once the plant is gone, that’s really criminal.”

No, you dumped the chemicals — not “we.” And you, Chuck Herrin, got the cheap labor — not “we.”

 

“We” got hospital emergency rooms jammed with illegal aliens when we came in with heart attacks. “We” got the crime, drunk-driving and drug trafficking associated with illegal aliens. “We” got the overcrowded schools filled with kids whose illegal alien parents don’t pay property taxes. “We” got to press “one” for English.

 

This is even worse than the Wall Street bailouts — another example of fat cats pocketing 100 percent of the profits when business is good, but demanding a taxpayer handout when their investments go south. At least the Wall Street bailouts didn’t alter the country forever by giving the Democrats 30 million new voters.

 

According to the California Hospital Association, health care for illegal aliens is costing state taxpayers well over $1 billion a year. Eighty-four hospitals across California have already been forced to close because of unpaid bills by illegal aliens.

 

Last year alone, California taxpayers paid $32 million for indigents’ health care at hospitals located in Fresno County– which happens to be where Chuck Herrin’s company is based. How about submitting a portion of that cost to Herrin?

 

Here’s your bill for $13 million.

 

What’s this for?

 

The county hospital. You’ve been paying your employees $20 an hour, and that’s just not enough to pay for their measles and tuberculosis treatments, not to mention delivery of their premature babies. No one’s saying it’s your fault, but it’s not the county hospital’s fault either.

 

Luckily, you’ve got deep pockets, Chuck – several hundred million dollars a year, we understand – thanks in part to how little you pay your workers, who are burdening our local services.

Not only should employers of illegal aliens be responsible for their employees’ becoming public charges, but they ought to be legally responsible for any crimes their illegal workers commit, just as parents can be for the crimes of their minor children, and bars can be for the behavior of their over-served customers.

 

Why should employers of illegal aliens be allowed to externalize their costs, while keeping 100 percent of the profits?

 

The very fact that the American taxpayer is required to subsidize illegal alien farm labor — to say nothing of anti-competitive marketing orders, tariffs and subsidies given to farmers — proves that we’re propping up an industry the country doesn’t need.

 

If Mexican farm labor is so much cheaper, maybe we should be growing our fruits and vegetables in Mexico. There’s absolutely no reason to import Mexicans to do something they could do at home and then sell to us. I believe this is what economists call “competitive advantage.”

 

The Times quotes a report by two pro-amnesty farmers groups, Partnership for a New American Economy and the Agriculture Coalition for Immigration Reform, complaining that American consumption of foreign-grown produce has increased by 80 percent since the late 1990s.

 

I see why rich farmers are alarmed by that, but why should Americans care? If food can be grown cheaper in other countries, isn’t it the very essence of libertarian free trade principles to buy it from them?

 

No. Apparently, we’re required to wreck the country by bringing in millions upon millions more poor people so we can save the buggy whip industry.

 

We didn’t do that with oil. We didn’t do it with steel. We must be “Fortress America” only when it comes to asparagus!

 

Hey! Where’s the Cato Institute on this? Busy drafting another philippic against our drug laws?

I care more about my fellow Americans who can’t get well-paying jobs than I do about multimillionaire farmers, demanding that the rest of us pay to support an industry that claims it can’t compete without taxpayer-subsidized illegal alien labor.

 

 

 
“Who should be deported?”

 

This is what happens when you put political hacks like John Sandweg in charge of serious organizations like the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  Who really cares what Sandweg’s views are regarding law enforcement anymore? 

 

There is a simple fix.  When the American People clean the clock of those currently in charge in 2014 and 2016, We The People have to make sure every single political appointee in DHS and ICE are sent packing. And those political hacks that have “burrowed” into the bureaucracy?  Clearly a 2 year training missions in the outer Aleutian Islands should cure them.  

 

I feel sorry for all career ICE and Border Patrol employees who are NOT ALLOWED to do their jobs of detaining, arresting and deporting all illegal aliens in the U.S.  

 

 

 

Who should be deported?

Op-Ed

ICE should eliminate ‘non-criminal re-entrants and immigration fugitives’ as a priority category for deportation.

March 27, 2014|By John Sandweg

 

President Obama recently directed Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to examine U.S. immigration enforcement policies to see how the department can “conduct enforcement more humanely within the confines of the law.”

 

The answer to the president’s directive is surprisingly simple: Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement division, known as ICE, should eliminate “non-criminal re-entrants and immigration fugitives” as a priority category for deportation.

 

 

Current ICE policy prioritizes these individuals solely because they have previously been caught up in our immigration system, not because they represent a criminal threat. Taking them off the priority list would dramatically advance the president’s goal of a more humane enforcement system and would enhance public safety and border security.

 

Over the last five years, the Obama administration has transformed our nation’s immigration enforcement system, turning it into a system that emphasizes removing criminals and keeping the border secure. In 2010, civil immigration enforcement priorities were established to direct ICE officers and agents to focus their efforts accordingly. Since then, more than 80% of the people the agency has apprehended in the interior United States and deported have been convicted criminals.

 

However, official agency policy also continues to direct ICE officers and agents to investigate, arrest and deport those who unlawfully reentered the United States after having been previously deported, and those who have absconded from immigration court proceedings, regardless of their criminal history or how long they have lived, worked or raised families in the United States. As a result, each year, tens of thousands of people are treated as enforcement priorities based on their immigration history alone.

 

Many of these people have been in the United States for a decade or more. They often have spouses who are U.S. citizens and have never been convicted of a criminal offense. Frequently, they were deported years earlier and returned to this country to reunite with their families. As a result, focusing ICE’s effort on them disproportionately separates parents and children, breadwinners from families, spouse from spouse.

 

To be sure, those who repeatedly cross our borders illegally or abscond from the immigration court bear culpability. However, making this population a priority detracts from ICE’s ability to track down and arrest the increasing number of much more serious public safety threats the agency identifies.

 

All in all, it makes little sense to use limited enforcement resources in this way.

 

Contrary to what some might think, the majority of ICE agents and officers would not object to removing “non-criminal re-entrants and immigration fugitives” from their caseloads. Charged with enforcing a broken set of laws and administering a dysfunctional enforcement system, these hardworking and dedicated law enforcement officers often unfairly bear the brunt of the frustrations and absurdities that result from Congress’ failure to reform our immigration laws. These officers know where their work will have the greatest impact.

 

When I was ICE’s acting director, I had the privilege of discussing the agency’s enforcement priorities with officers and agents across the country. I repeatedly heard these men and women express their support for clear policies that would focus their efforts on the most serious offenders and offenses.

 

The president was right to suggest a review of ICE’s enforcement priorities. Much of the groundwork for the change I’m suggesting has already been laid, and this policy shift could be implemented immediately. It will not solve all of the challenges facing our broken immigration system, but until Congress acts, it can fulfill the president’s call for a more humane system and make the country safer.

 

John Sandweg, acting director of ICE from August 2013 to February, also served as acting general counsel in the Department of Homeland Security.

 

Help Save Maryland – Join HSM Supporters Rally at the White House in DC, Saturday April 5 at 2PM. – Action Alert

Help Save Maryland – Join HSM Supporters Rally at the White House in DC, Saturday April 5 at 2PM.

 The Illegal Alien Community is holding a protest across from the White House at Lafayette Park, 2PM Saturday, April 5.  

 

The Community is mad because their top supporter Obama continues to “deport” law breaking illegal aliens.  This “breaks up” illegal alien families that should not even be here in the first place – SO WHAT?  And Obama is not really deporting any of the 20 million illegal aliens who are working, sucking up public services, signing up for Obamacare, and using our schools anyway. 

 

The usual suspects will be out in force – National Council of La Raza, CASA of Maryland, Day Laborer Organizations (taking time off from stealing our jobs and earning tax free incomes, most of which is sent to Mexico and points south!), unions like the Service Employees International Union, radical students from Georgetown University and of course bus loads of law-breaking illegal aliens.  Should be a blast!

How desperate are the Democrats to invoke Amnesty for the mostly Hispanic illegal aliens? 

 

Nancy Pelosi – “I believe, and I say this with all the sincerity I have, that it is more important to pass comprehensive immigration reform — to me and to my caucus — than to win the election in November,” Pelosi said at a Washington gathering of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

 

 

How desperate are the RINOs to invoke Amnesty for the mostly Hispanic illegal aliens? 

 

 

Paul Ryan -  “To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws,” Ryan said Wednesday at a breakfast hosted by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. “It’s really a question of ‘when.’”

 

Jeb Bush -  “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added.

 

 

Conservative Condoleezza Rice -   “We are a nation of immigrants,” she said. “And I know it’s hard, but this nation of immigrants has got to remain a nation of immigrants, drawing to its shores the best and the brightest, the ambitious, those who belong with us and who will make ‘we the people’ stronger.” (LOVE HER BUT THIS IN NOT HER ISSUE!  TRUE IMMIGRANTS ARRIVE LEGALLY).

 

 

TEN YEARS LATER – THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE O’MALLEY/BROWN/ANNAPOLIS GAME PLAN FOR MARYLAND

 

With help of course from CASA of Maryland and their stooges in Annapolis, State Senator Victor Ramirez (D-Prince George’s County) and Delegate Ana Sol Gutierrez (D-Montgomery County).

 

“I have a plan to destroy America”
 by Richard D. Lamm   In 2004, Richard D. Lamm, former governor of Colorado, addressed a conference sponsored by the Federation for American Immigration Reform in
Washington. The following remarks are reprinted with his permission.
 

 

I have a secret plan to destroy America. If you believe, as many do, that America is too smug, too white bread, too self-satisfied, too rich, let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. History shows that nations are more fragile than their citizens think. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and they all fall, and that “an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.” Here is my plan:

 

1. We must first make America a bilingual-bicultural country. History shows, in my opinion, that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. One scholar, Seymour Martin Lipset, put it this way: “The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with its Basques, Bretons and Corsicans.”

 

2. I would then invent “multiculturalism” and encourage immigrants to maintain their own culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal: that there are no cultural differences that are important. I would declare it an article of faith that the black and Hispanic dropout rate is only due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out-of-bounds.

 

3. We can make the United States a “Hispanic Quebec” without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently, “The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved, not by tolerance, but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically, and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.” I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with a salad bowl metaphor. It is important to insure that we have various cultural sub-groups living in America reinforcing their differences, rather than Americans emphasizing their similarities.

 

4. Having done all this, I would make our fastest-growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50 percent dropout rate from school.

 

5. I would then get the big foundations and big business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of victimology. I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was all the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.

 

6. I would establish dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would “celebrate diversity.” “Diversity” is a wonderfully seductive word. It stresses differences rather than commonalities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other–that is, when they are not killing each other. A “diverse,” peaceful or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together, and we can take advantage of this myopia.

 

Look at the ancient Greeks. Dorf’s “World History” tells us: “The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic Games in honor of Zeus, and all Greeks venerated the shrine of Apollo at Delphi. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet, all of these bonds together were not strong enough to overcome two factors … (local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions …)” If we can put the emphasis on the “pluribus,” instead of the “unum,” we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.

 

7. Then I would place all these subjects off-limits–make it taboo to talk about. I would find a word similar to “heretic” in the 16th century that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like “racist”, “xenophobe” halt argument and conversation. Having made America a bilingual-bicultural country, having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of “victimology,” I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra –”because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good.” I would make every individual immigrant sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact.

 

8. Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hanson’s book “Mexifornia” –this book is dangerous; it exposes my plan to destroy America. So please, please–if you feel that America deserves to be destroyed–please, please–don’t buy this book! This guy is on to my plan.

 

“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum.” –Noam Chomsky, American linguist and U.S. media and foreign policy critic.

 

 

GOOD NEWS -  NEW YORK, TENNESSEE and GEORGIA told the illegal alien DREAMERS in their respective states – heck no to In-State College Tuition!

 

Maryland remains one of the few states in the country to provide it.  If Lt Governor Brown, the man in charge of the Maryland healthcare computer system, becomes Governor in November he has stated to wants to add financial aid on top of the In-State Tuition.  Just like California.

Senator David Brinkley voted to support this project in the Senate. Delegate Hough offered an amendment to remove funding for Casa de Maryland.
 
“Where does David Brinkley draw the line? He votes for O’Malley’s budget that included over $143 million in funding for Obamacare, now he votes for an earmark for a left-wing illegal immigrant group Casa de Maryland.” Hough explains.
 
Casa de Maryland is an extremist pro-amnesty group that openly assists illegal immigrants to find jobs, get government benefits and fight deportation. In addition, Casa de Maryland lobbies the Maryland General Assembly on issues like providing in-state tuition for illegal immigrants and giving them drivers licenses.

Brinkley Supports Pro- Amnesty Illegal Immigrant Group

Annapolis, Maryland- Today, Delegate Michael Hough voted against the $1.17 billion pork-laden Capital Budget, which included $50,000 for the pro-amnesty illegal immigrant group Casa de Maryland.

Casa de Maryland is an extremist pro-amnesty group that openly assists illegal immigrants to find jobs, get government benefits and fight deportation. In addition, Casa de Maryland lobbies the Maryland General Assembly on issues like providing in-state tuition for illegal immigrants and giving them drivers licenses.

In his written testimony before the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee on the earmark for Casa de Maryland, Brad Botwin, Director of Help Save Maryland stated, “The weak economy, lack of jobs and illegal aliens stealing our employment and social services are the problems in Maryland, not a shortage of Casa de Maryland run day laborer Job centers…. I would like to remind our elected officials that citizens, rather than illegal aliens, are you constituents.”

The Capital Budget is an annual pork-filled appropriation from the General Assembly that is partially funded by state property taxes.

Hough explains, “David Brinkley is taking your hard earned property tax dollars and sending it to pro-illegal immigrant group Casa de Maryland. The senior citizens of Frederick & Carroll Counties, who struggle to afford property taxes, should not have their tax dollars wasted on liberal extremist groups.”

On top of the funding for Casa de Maryland, the capital budget includes many election year giveaways inserted by politicians including; $250,000 for the National Sailing Hall of Fame, $75,000 for a Skatepark in Baltimore City, $25,000 for a Lighthouse Museum, and $100,000 for a Sculptural Garden.
