Obama’s Enemies List

April 7, 2014
Obama’s Enemies List

This is what happens when the institutions of the state are permitted to run amok. If the fact that the ATF hasn’t fired a single person responsible for the Fast and Furious debacle, or its subsequent coverup, surprises you, then you probably haven’t been paying attention. The only people censured in this administration are those brave enough to  expose its malfeasance.  I’m sure that the campaign to demonize critics of the White House’s systematic executive overreach, i.e. abuse of power, will continue unabated, but the fact that some congressmen are at least attempting to reassert the power of Congress is worthy of note.

Kudos to Congressman Issa!

The Emperor of Twee (Seavey/Perry on Wes Anderson)

April 5, 2014

 

The latest installment of the entertainment podcast sweeping the nation has arrived! Our apologies for any audio difficulties you might encounter, and a promise to rectify that bug in the future. Until then, enjoy my thoughts on Pete Seeger’s passing-and cultural influence, both negative and positive-as well as Wes Anderson’s latest (unsuccessful) attempt to defy expectations.

Power to the People

Power to the People

One of the only, and inarguably the most potent, weapons patriotic citizens have in our struggle against the lavishly-funded, politically powerful open borders lobby is the support of the American public. This strength was demonstrated yet again in the deeply blue state of Oregon, where the supreme court of that state has allowed an initiative to be placed on the ballot which would bar illegal aliens from having access to state-issued driver’s licenses.

Congratulations to Oregonians for Immigration Reform for proving that grassroots organization can beat the treason lobby despite the vehement opposition of well-heeled corporate donors, the state legislature, and virtually quarter of the mainstream news media. This is what resistance looks like!

Free Range Kids

Free Range Kids

 

One of the more pernicious trends in modern parenting is the tendency to cosset children, to treat them  as flesh and blood versions of Faberge eggs, insisting that they never be exposed to the potential for hurt or disappointment-no matter how minimal the risk, or instructive the lesson-at any point in their young lives. One of the main adversaries of this form of helicopter parenting is Lenore Skenazy, a columnist and mother who is responsible for creating Free Range Kids, a movement designed to discredit the notion that children should be denied the independence and freedom of movement-and thought-which creates productive adult members of society. 

Mrs. Skenazy gave a fantastic lecture last month before the Cato Institute, hosted by legal blogger Walter Olson, outlining her case, which is incredibly compelling. But I’ll let you decide for yourself

The Treason Lobby’s Bag Man

The Treason Lobby’s Bag Man

As  a Facebook friend remarked when posting a link to this story, “what morons are running this godforsaken idiot party?” Good question, my friend. The answer, apparently, is liberal open borders, multimillionaire  Sheldon Adelson. Leaving aside the dubious provenance of Mr. Adelson’s wealth,  you have to wonder why Republican presidential aspirants would be so eager to court an benefactor who has a nearly unblemished record of bankrolling losing candidates.

The answer, of course, is that the leaders of the current Republican Party  are beholden to corporate donors and are willing to do their bidding, especially when it coincides with their own deeply-held beliefs. Jeb Bush is merely the most pliant instrument of the open borders lobby, but his views, unfortunately, are shared by many of the front-runners in the 2016 GOP presidential sweepstakes. Including pre-Bridgegate media darling, Governor Chris Christie.

The battle has been joined, it’s time patriotic Americans weighed in, don’t you think?

 

The Two Faces Of Harry Reid

The Two Faces Of Harry Reid

Lest you think the open borders dogmatists who dictate Democratic Party policy on immigration have always been so adamantly opposed to the interests of Americans, Mark Levin explains how shifting demographics-along with the moral bankruptcy at the heart of the institutional left-forced the current Senate Majority Leader’s hand.  One former Democrat who has held firm is the former governor of Colorado, Dick Lamm, whose prescient warnings about the perils of unfettered mass immigration from the third world have been studiously ignored by people who can immunize themselves against the deleterious impact of their own ideas. 

h/t to FAIR for this invaluable audio. 

 

Border Security

March 27, 2014


 

To put things into perspective, there have been repeated incursions by ostensible members of the Mexican military since 2006, many of which have been linked to powerful drug cartels. Which begs the question, what’s being done  by the Mexican state to curb the aggression of Mexico’s uniformed officers? The answer, sadly, is not much. 

 

 

What You Can Do

Stop The Boehner-Cantor-Obama Amnesty

Stop The Boehner-Cantor-Obama Amnesty

This past week’s immigration theater confirm what we have been saying for years. Namely, that the House GOP leadership can’t be trusted to protect the interests of the American public, especially when they conflict with its corporate benefactors. Even as Boehner’s attack dogs from silicon valley are unleashed against his own members who dare to stand up for their constituents, his chief deputy in the House of Representatives continues to peddle the spurious line that he disagrees with Obama over immigration reform, i.e. legislative amnesty.

Thankfully, as the invaluable Mickey Kaus points out, there is something you can do about this! You can find out what that is below the fold.  Read More »

Make Them Listen Monday

October 28, 2013

It should come as no surprise that the lavishly-funded open borders lobby is renewing its push to enact wholesale amnesty. Minting millions of new Democratic voters is the President’s only hope of salvaging a second term whose chief accomplishment to date has been the complete unraveling of the President’s chief first term accomplishment.

Civic Action (Anti-Amnesty Demonstration This Saturday)

October 4, 2013

The open borders lobby hasn’t had much luck mustering impressive mobs in their national campaign to pressure lawmakers into rubber-stamping amnesty through Congress. However, that hasn’t prevented it from trying to milk publicity from public spectacles attended mostly by those who aren’t even legally entitled to vote. We’ll be seeing another anti-enforcement rally this weekend, but the good news is that New York Ice  will be there to challenge the faulty premises and tortured logic used by the treason lobby.

Joanna Marzullo gives you all the information you’ll need to participate below.  Read More »
