2017 Year In Review Part Two – Illegal Immigration

There are few issues as “hot button” as immigration. As a first generation American I understand that because immigration to me is incredibly important. The way it is portrayed in today’s insanely biased so called main stream media, there are only two sides to the immigration debate, the loving, tolerant and understanding open borders supporters and the evil, hateful wall builders. These are of course caricatures but caricatures are simple to explain and easy to understand, thus they are used.

When most people think of immigration it tends to be in one of two ways. The first view, heavily pushed by the media and indoctrinated in the public school system, is that of the hard working, play by the rules (except for the whole illegal entry thing which is dutifully ignored), family oriented, taxpaying immigrant seeking only a better life for him his kind, cookie baking wife and ever tolerant, understanding and racially profiled kids. The second view of immigration, no less forced, is that of a criminal underclass seeking the complete overthrow of our government. The truth, as always, lies somewhere in between.

Historically speaking, legal immigration has been a good thing for America. It was certainly a good thing for me and I am truly grateful for the opportunities being born in America has afforded me. That being said I have to point out a few realities about immigration that the “open borders” people either don’t know or refuse to concede to.

First, no one has the “right” to immigrate here.

Second, Constitutional rights only apply to American citizens.

Third, the fact that you were able to break into America does not entitle you to anything.

Fourth, there is no such thing as an “anchor” baby.

Fifth, your entire family, out to 27 generations, is not entitled to follow you here.

Sixth, America has not just the right but the duty to determine who gets to immigrate here.

Seventh, none of the above is intolerant or hateful.

A final point. Illegal immigration involves so much more than the media will tell you about. There are considerations far beyond simply how many and from where the people we let into America come from.

Using the last few of years as a reference point lets contemplate some obvious and not so obvious consequences of unchecked illegal immigration.

We begin with crime.

In 1980 federal and state prisons housed fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens. The number today hovers around 55,000, accounting for more than twenty-five percent of all prisoners in federal prisons. There are an additional approximately 297,000 criminal aliens incarcerated in state and local prisons.

2017
Consider these shocking numbers from just couple of years ago. In Florida illegal aliens account for 40% of all murder convictions, in New York 34% and in Arizona, a state brutalized by the Kenyans administration and his media minions for simply seeking to enforce federal immigration law, 17.8%.

Put another way, during that time frame illegal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in Arizona, California, Florida, New York and Texas combined. In body count numbers that’s 7,085 victims of illegal immigration. Put yet another way, that’s 7,085 people who did not have to die. As an aside, the illegal alien population in those states is only 5.6% (US Census data) of the states population. Little has changed over the last couple of years.

It’s not much better in other states. You simply do not know about these kinds of things because the media has engaged in a complete and total black out of the term illegal alien when reporting on crime.

The long going determination by the left to hide the astounding levels of criminality by illegal aliens extends even to state and local governments. In 2006, Colorado a state rapidly sinking into liberal lunacy, passed a law requiring the state Attorney General to determine the costs of incarcerating illegal aliens and bill the federal government for reimbursement. The cost via the number of incarcerated illegal aliens was so high that the state AG only sent the government a bill for half the real cost. Torn between trying to be semi fiscally responsible and sheltering the narrative about illegal immigration, the state decided to protect the criminals. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over don’t it?

Next, lets consider Money.

According to Mexico’s Central Bank (Banxico), 2017 was a record-breaking year for receiving remittances by Mexicans abroad. In the first eleven months of 2017, Mexicans sent home $26,167,00,000. This follows another record setting year in 2016 when $24.1 billion left the American economy. To put this in context, Mexico’s second largest source of income in 2017 was the export of oil for $18.5 billion. While it is tragic that Mexicans send so much money home to fund a corrupt, abusive and failing government, the thing that should concern Americans the most is the fact that these dollars can not be used to help our own citizens or grow our own economy. As the pervert Clinton would likely have said, “How many poor children could $26 billion feed?”

To rub some salt into the wound consider that taxpayers at the federal, state and local levels payed out nearly $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by 12.5 million illegal aliens and roughly 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. In round figures approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member. The math leads to a total of around $115,894,597,664. In 2013 the total was $113 billion. You shouldn’t have to be a noble laureate in math to realize this is an unsustainable upwards trajectory. (Cloward Piven anyone?)

To those who would say, but sailor, they pay more in taxes than that. I would ask you to simply learn the truth or stop lying. Here are the numbers. Illegal aliens payed in federally $22,191,097,700. Subtract what they received just in tax credits alone $6,743,200,000 and that leaves a balance of $15,447,897,700. Well, at least they are paying something, right? Wrong, unless you’re using common core math. The combined total of state and local government general expenditures on illegal aliens is estimated at $18,571,428,571 billion. So much for that argument.

What you don’t know about Healthcare.

Incredibly, thanks to yet another main stream media blackout, no one even knows about the healthcare disasters being forced on America to satisfy some demented idea of “tolerance.”

An example of what we could be looking at was recently provided by Germany. The Germans equivalent of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is The Robert Koch Institute (RKI). RKI is responsible for monitoring infectious diseases and managing outbreaks. RKI is reporting significant increases in communicable diseases across Germany. Its annual report on “Infectious Disease Epidemiology in Germany states, “the institute concluded that recent increases in dengue fever, Hantavirus, hemorrhagic fever, malaria, tuberculosis and other communicable diseases are directly attributable to the migrant stream currently pouring into Germany.”

These infections, rare in Europe for decades, pose a significant threat to the general health and welfare of native Germans. While Germany has a first class healthcare system that should be able to successfully handle the outbreak of a single disease, even a serious one, the sheer number of refugees and the diversity of infectious diseases they appear to be spreading is straining the German public health infrastructure to its limits.

The U.S. experienced a mass migration event similar to the German refugee crisis under the Obama administration. The arrival of massive numbers of illegal aliens was accompanied by significant increases in Dengue Fever, Tuberculosis and Swine Flu. Fortunately these outbreaks were quickly brought under control. In 2014, a wave of unaccompanied alien children appear to have been the source of the deadly outbreak of the EV-D68 Enterovirus that quickly began spread throughout the western states. Feeling all warm and fuzzy yet? Better get checked out.

Consider some recent health statistics in light of what you have now learned.

Between 2010 and 2014 the Minnesota Department of Health reported two hundred and ninety-six refugees were diagnosed with active tuberculosis. It is illustrative to point out that seventy-one of those cases were diagnosed within one year of their arrival while the remaining 225 were diagnosed in the following year. The number of active TB cases reported among refugees showing up in Minnesota is ten times higher than reported in any of the fourteen other states that have released refugee TB data to the public. See a pattern?

Costing an average of $17,000 for each case of successfully treated active TB Minnesota taxpayers coughed up roughly $5 million to treat the 296 cases of active TB diagnosed among refugees between 2010 and 2014. It broke down this way. $3 million for the 161 Somali refugees diagnosed with active TB, and an additional $2 million to treat the 132 refugees diagnosed with active TB who were not born in Somalia.

Sadly Minnesota is not alone. Between 2014 and 2015 the following states reported these numbers.

Wisconsin, 27, Nebraska & Louisiana, 21, Michigan, 19, Vermont, 17, Colorado, 16, Florida & Ohio 11, Kentucky, 9, Idaho, 7, Indiana & N. Dakota, 4 and California, 3.

As the numbers of infections and diseases continue to grow more and more politically correct state and federal administration types are contributing to the media blackout by making these kinds of numbers more and more difficult to obtain.

Corruption and the abandonment of reason.

Then there is the culture of corruption fostered by those SJW’s whose sole mission is the fundamental transformation of America.

A stunning video, released by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, shows an operative going undercover to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and being told that if you’re from Syria and used a faked passport to get into the United States, you can still get immigration services.

AFDI operative Laura Loomer went to a USCIS office “and told an official that she had met a family of illegal immigrants from Syria and wanted to make sure they got immigration services.”

She informed the official the family was afraid to come into the office because, “they don’t have documents because they came here illegally” using fake passports.

In the video the USCIS official didn’t even hesitate. There are cases, he said, “we waive sometimes the passport, because they are unable to provide that documentation.” The official continued, the real name really didn’t matter either, “We are going to use the name on the passport as AKA, ‘also known as.’”

The video further explained that the government employee was simply, “explaining the law as it stands.” In other words, any terrorist or career criminal can walk freely into America with the unwavering support of liberal social justice warriors in government and congress.

It gets even worse. The IRS Inspector Generals Office reported that the tax-collection agency knows that more than one million illegal immigrants have used stolen Social Security numbers of citizens to file fraudulent tax returns, collecting billions of dollars in fraudulent refunds. Irritatingly, the IRS makes no serious effort to get those stolen dollars back. Not only that but the IRS has done virtually nothing to stop the practice. It hasn’t even notified a meaningful percentage of those Americans victimized by identity fraud that they have been victimized. The IRS has known this issue for at least the last five years. A half-hearted test program designed to attack the problem was quietly scrapped because it had virtually no effect.

According to Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., there’s really only one explanation for this, the IRS ignoring this problem. Brat believes the government ignoring one of its fundamental responsibilities. He explained,

Koskinen was in front of us, and I asked him, ‘If you know that you have illegal aliens and they’re asking for tax refunds or asking for any tax status, would you do anything about it?’ He said no. I was stunned,” Brat said. Koskinen made the same assertion in his Senate testimony. “When he says it’s not my job to report illegal, much less unethical behavior, we’ve got a problem,” Brat added.

Part of that problem is that Koskinen, and liberals like him, are not yet doing ten to twenty at the nearest federal penitentiary.

Finally, the lie of DACA.

Lets be honest, DACA is a blatantly unconstitutional, temporary amnesty program. It’s sole function is to reward underachievers and criminals. If a few good people slip through the cracks so be it.

The vast majority of DACA recipients are not in fact children, averaging between 25-30 years of age who are fully conversant with both the language and culture of their home country.

Neither are they diligent college students. DACA recipients college graduation rates are below the national average. This is despite being given in state tuition rates in far to many states and preference over American citizens in many other areas.

Nor are they service oriented. Less that 1% of DACA recipients serve in America’s military.

Sadly, for many DACA recipients their idea of self sufficiency is to attach themselves to the welfare system then complain about how little they are getting.

Most egregious of all is that virtually anyone can claim DACA status. Successful applicants can have up to three misdemeanors. These can range from graffiti-spraying to drunk driving to wife-beating to gun violations. In other words things that would land you or me in jail are ignored so illegal aliens can access your wallet through federal, state and local programs.

Now don’t that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy all over? Don’t you just feel all social justice warrior like knowing how badly you and your country are being beaten up to make some spoiled, ill educated liberals feel good about themselves?

As the pervert Clinton is alleged to have said once, “better put some ice on that.”

2017 The Year in Review Part 1: Democrats And Blood In The Streets

I believe that in a very short time we will look back at 2017 and understand it to be the extremely pivotal year that, in ways that many may have not noticed, it really was.

One of the most tragic and destructive legacies of the Kenyans reign over America has been the institutionalization and normalization of lawlessness at nearly every level of society. From the Nation of Islam to The New Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter and even Antifa, liberals have actively and openly stoked the flames of racial hatred and division and, with the exception of the election of Trump, suffered not the slightest consequence of importance. Under the Kenyans tutelage even thoughts were deemed criminal if they did not comport to the supreme leaders ideology.

It has become blindingly obvious to anyone willing to look that the DOJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, INS and a host of other federal agencies have been turned against conservative Americans. One can only hope that Trump is able to restore a sense of law and order to a deeply weaponized American government.

Among many things that became clearly apparent in 2017 was the absolute bloody history of the democratic party. After some fifty years spent successfully hiding their Jim Crow legacy behind the bodies of its victims, the carnage wrought by the policies of the party of the “little guy” are becoming to massive to conceal any longer. Only the most mind numbed liberal can be satisfied that Kate Stienlie’s killer got off with time served, that the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that it is fine for black males to run from cops, that the “knock out” game was so very carefully ignored by everyone but it’s victims or that the Portland, Oregon Police Department has decided to stop identifying gang members and purge the gang member database it has developed over the last two decades to appear non racist. Similar symptoms of liberal idiocy, are appearing throughout America and are praised by liberals as good and decent things. Make no mistake, liberals will continue to deny the painfully obvious and the media will maintain its news blackout of the carnage even as the number of bodies and victims is beginning to reach a critical mass that even they can no longer conceal.

In 2016, the latest figures I was able to find, the FBI reported there were 1.2 million violent crimes committed in America. This represents a 4.1% increase over 2015. It is the second year in a row violent crimes have risen. To put some perspective on this the current crime level represents 386 violent crimes for every 1000 people.

The good news, if you can call it that, is that much of the continuing spike in violent crime comes from a relatively few and, almost exclusively democrat led and managed, cities. In order, here are the top ten offenders.

Detroit, Michigan: 2,047 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 303 murders.
St. Louis, Missouri: 1,913 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 188 murders.
Memphis, Tennessee: 1,820 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 196 murders.
Baltimore, Maryland: 1,780 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 318 murders.
Rockford, Illinois: 1,659 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 26 murders.
Kansas City, Missouri: 1,655 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 129 murders.
Cleveland, Ohio: 1,631 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 135 murders.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin: 1,533 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 141 murders.
Little Rock, Arkansas: 1,531 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 42 murders.
Oakland, California: 1,426 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 85 murders.

I bet you were surprised that Chicago wasn’t on the list. I wouldn’t take much comfort from that fact. In 2015, Chicago reported 478 homicides, leading all other American cities. In Chicago this year people are still getting shot in insanely high numbers. By the middle of October, 2017, 1,000 more people were shot than at the same time last year. Of the 3,500 shooting victims this year so far nearly 600 died. In Chicago the murder rate tends to be concentrated in a few areas. Two neighborhoods, Burnside and Fuller Park, have homicide rates of more than 100 per 100,000 residents. Similarly, 45 percent of shootings in St. Louis this year have been clustered in just eight neighborhoods. New Orleans reports a similar finding.

Consider these trends as an ancillary to the Ferguson Effect and another of the Kenyan’s legacies, the war on cops. In many large cities cops are now extremely hesitant, and not without good reason, to engage in proactive policing. Far to often they are harassed or assaulted by bystanders when exercising their duties. Police have even been openly targeted for assassination on multiple occasions. The criminals know that liberal city and/or county prosecutors, state administrations, a corrupt judiciary and politically correct press will spend more effort “understanding” and “commiserating” with them as “victims” of racism or white privilege, than prosecuting them for actual crimes committed.

There are few places where the Ferguson Effect is more pronounced than in New York City. The self avowed communist mayor there has abandoned the policies that made NYC once one of the safest large cities in America. The mayor, his administration, a complicit judiciary and media as well as the thugs, gangs and organized criminal enterprises operating in and around the city have either bought hook, line and sinker the lie that cops are gunning down black men at will, are all closet racists or have decided to use these false narratives to their advantage. The fact that the vast majority of murdered blacks are killed by blacks is not only well known but decisively and studiously ignored by liberal leaders and their media and judicial accomplices. Simply observing that undeniable fact causes one to be labeled a racist.

This evil strategy, blaming fictional institutional racism for every ill, real or perceived, experienced by black people has been an article of faith to liberals for the last couple of decades. The newly invented “white privilege” was created to disguise the highly developed sense of black (and to a slightly lesser degree, hispanic and moslem) self entitlement created and nurtured by liberals. Consider the following cities as prime examples of where liberal policies on not just crime but poverty have been running unchecked for a very long time.

Baltimore. Democrat mayors with 18,000 consecutive days in charge. Poverty rate: 23.6%.

Chicago. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 24.7%.

Detroit. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 39.3%.

Philadelphia. Democrat mayors with 20,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 31.4%.

St. Louis. Democrat mayors with 15,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 28.5%.

I can hear all you statisticians saying correlation does not always equal causation. After all, everyone who ate a carrot a hundred and fifty years ago died. True, but this is just a tiny sample from a much larger pool of dramatically similar evidence. Sometimes correlation does equal causation.

As if there are not enough criminals in America liberals insist on importing as many more as fast as they can. I understand that not every “refugee” or illegal alien is a “criminal” but honesty requires me to acknowledge that a high percentage of them are and often of the most heinous type. By definition anyone here illegally is already a criminal and I can come up with no sane reason to accept and reward (cash welfare, medical, housing, food stamps, child tax credit, drivers licenses, in state college tuition etc) people who have chosen to violate the law. One cannot help but note that, in the importation of islamic “refugees” the vast majority (up to 90% depending on which period you evaluate) are males age 17-45. If you are wondering why this could be important consider that I have just given you the demographic of every standing army on the planet.
As a first generation American I am certainly not against legal immigration. However, I am against importing by the millions people who adamantly and sometimes violently, refuse to assimilate. These are the “immigrants” or “refugees” whose main function seems to be converting the most successful, inventive, tolerant, prosperous and freest country in the history of mankind into the hell hole they “fled”.
Liberals accept the importing of hundreds of thousands of moslems without question. They do so knowing full well that moslems generally refuse to assimilate and they will attempt to force their religion on everyone by threat, intimidation, force and lawfare. As moslems, many will rape, kill and plunder because their religion allows it (in the koran I read these actions are demanded from a devout moslem as part of his religious duties to further the influence of islam) and the moslems know the liberals will cover for them.
It is a sad fact that for the last several years virtually every “major” media outlet has refused to list the ethnicity/immigration status of criminals unless they are white males. They have taken this strategy to the absurd extreme of labeling, for example, a Mexican illegal alien as white if he has or uses an anglo sounding name. This strategy has been used to effectively cover up what amounts to a rape epidemic by so called “immigrants” of, as far as I can tell, unparalleled proportions in American history. The main perpetrators seem to come from south of the border countries, African countries and islamic countries.
The average moslem “refugee” and average illegal alien share some common attributes highly valued by liberals. Both tend to have less than a high school education, virtually no marketable skills, little to no understanding of or ability or even desire to use the English language, commit a wide variety of crimes at a much higher rate that native born citizens and are heavily welfare dependent. They each demand special accommodations at every turn. Subtract the language component and you have the demographic of your average street thug. Hey, no worries. Liberals believe that once the America so many of us grew up in has been destroyed by these “immigrants” they can rebuild it correctly.
Until then as long as the illegal aliens/refugees vote democratic and work cheaply for the Chamber of Commerce no one in government will do anything substantive to solve the problem. Remember dear reader you and I, like Kate Stienle, are a sacrifice liberals are willing to make.

Everything You Thought You Knew About Language Is Wrong

I have probably listened to Michael Savage a total of fifteen minutes in my whole life. I have read some of his books and columns. When he talks about losing the language he is spot on. Without language we are left with virtually no tools to frame a concept, produce a counter argument or even describe a concept or principle. Controlling the language was every bit as important to the liberal (well intentioned or devoted fascist) as running academia, the media and popular culture. Consider how far from the plain meaning of words we have gotten.

Bipartisanship. This touchstone of liberals does not mean to them what it means to you, me and most likely, the vast majority of good intentioned but misinformed liberals. The average public school victim, I mean graduate, hears this golden word and thinks of a group of legislators gathered around the well of the House with the well being of America as their sole concern. Alternatively some people think of a group of legislators meeting and compromising until something, generally good, and politically expedient is worked out. In this fantasy scenario, everyone gets a little of what they wanted but no one “wins” completely. Liberals desperately want for you to believe both of these scenarios. In reality nothing could be further from the truth. History proves that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

While many republicans (RINOS all) have swallowed these myths and desperately continue trying to make them reality, the fact is that liberals only have one definition of bipartisanship, my way or the highway. I first became aware of their duplicity when the promise, codified in law, to support the South Vietnamese Army after Americas withdrawal, was ruthlessly ignored. Estimates vary but millions were murdered, tortured, raped and sent to concentration camps. Liberals knew about the murders, executions, rapes and torture but simply didn’t care. The victims of the NV communist regime were acceptable collateral damage to the liberal democrats and their supporters at the time. The press knew about the carnage but covered for their liberal pals as best and as often as they could. In the end their narrative survived and that was all that mattered. As an aside, Ken Burns continues the cover up with his alleged documentary on the war.

The process or “bipartisanship” was continued with the mythical border enforcement promised for Reagan’s signature on the misguided amnesty he signed off on, with the never intended budget cuts promised to Bush senior for his tax increase, all the way to today’s current “gun control” arguments (just one more law will stem the tide of violence in this country). As further, and unnecessary proof of my argument, can anyone name a true conservative bill that the Kenyan little Barry ever signed off on during his illegal presidential term? Bipartisanship is like the mirage of water to the lost man in the desert, and produces for America, the same results.

Migrant, Migrants, Refugees. These terms are virtually indistinguishable from one another. These terms are used precisely because of the images they invoke, good, warmhearted, poor, honest, downtrodden people fleeing poverty and persecution, willing to work hard for their version of the American dream. The term migrant, which conveys an unspoken sense of legitimacy, is the current evolution of the highly accurate term illegal alien. We are led to believe that these migrants are, for example, the poor abused unwanted of our southern neighbors. We are told they only want a better life for them and their children. If this is true then why do these migrants work so desperately to recreate in America the slums they left? Why do they send back to Mexico alone billions of dollars every year? This money ends up in the pockets of Mexican drug lords and corrupt south of the border politicians. Why do they overwhelmingly support a group “La Raza, (translation, The Race) dedicated to “returning” much of America to Mexico? If they are so hardworking why are so many of them on welfare? If they are so invested in the American dream why do they so often refuse to learn and use English? Why do they so often self segregate? Interwoven among the “migrant” community are the DACA “children” many, if not most of them over the age of 19, including known gang members and enough criminals to scare the daylights out of reasonable people. Liberals still refer to them as children so they can blast people like me for reminding everyone that the simple fact is, these people have no legal right to be here.

Refugee is the current PC term for the militant moslem America haters being imported by both the government and churches as fast as the government can pay the churches for doing so. The term also carries with it a sense of moral duty. These, we are lectured at, are the brutally oppressed that we must care for. This is also total Barbara Streisand. The vast majority, around 99%, are devout and often militant moslems intent on “converting” America into their caliphate. The real oppressed, Christians in the middle east, are being routinely murdered, raped and tortured en masse by our refugees brethren and studiously ignored by the very churches who claim to believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. These “poor” moslem refugees demand special accommodations at every turn, harbor violent and brutal criminals, mutilate young girls, teach that their men have the right and duty to rape non moslem women, engage in the horrific act of honor killings and, for now, have turned parts of the once great state of Michigan into a non moslem no go zone.

Liberals and democrats accept all this economic and personal carnage because the two classes, migrant and refugee, vote (nearly always illegally) almost exclusively democrat. This isn’t to say that liberal leadership is unaware of the evil they support, they just believe that once they fully gain control, they can scale back the destruction. This is a delusion of mind numbing proportions.

There are many other words liberals and democrats have corrupted.

Investing means simply raising taxes to spend more money we do not have on things and agencies we do not need.

Education means the indoctrination of yet another generation into the glories of socialism, perversion (disguised as sex education), revisionist history and anti American hatred.

Integrity means the ability to not get caught violating the letter and spirit of the law and if you do get caught, avoiding any consequences.

No reasonable, thinking person should allow themselves to be sucked into this linguistic mumbo jumbo.

The liberal way of thinking is created by the twisted definition of words. It produces, then covers for sick people like Harvey Weinstein, Anthony Weiner and Bill Clinton. It creates bizarre concepts like social justice. It produces facts like blacks can’t, by virtue of their skin color, be racist. It manufactures crisis like the current college rape epidemic. It thrives on lies like “hands up, don’t shoot” and “I can’t breathe.” It encourages, sorry, it demands the hubris of transgenderism.

Eventually, many liberals end up realizing just how shallow and vacuous their liberalism is and just how far from reason and reality they have strayed. Because they have so often invested their education, career, even their entire lives into their liberalism, change for them is quite difficult. A great many never even attempt to change. It’s easier to accept black lives matter, CNN or antifa as reasonable reactions to any who disturb their convoluted world view.

The lies that have to be believed to live this way are truly a burden unto themselves. Congratulations, you earned it.

Tolerance Equals Failure

I am an unusual person. By nearly every definition, today’s society/pop culture considers me irredeemably weird. I simply do not fit into any of their molds. I chuckle every time I think about that. As some examples consider the following.

I have been happily married to the same lovely young women for the last 32 years. I have never had an affair. I have worked for the same employer for 32 years. I held my part time tax job for 17 years. At work I show up on time and do more than expected of me. When I need to be somewhere I plan well enough that I do not need to race like some maniac loser to get to where I am going on time. When my gas guzzling Durango needed major repairs I paid the $1250 from my savings account. When I replace my car I buy well maintained used cars and pay them off as quickly as possible allowing me to sometimes go years without a car payment, not to mention the money I save on car insurance. When my daughter brought her new boyfriend over to meet me I took one look at the six pounds of metal protruding from his face, the six hundred tattoos, the pants desperately clinging to his hips and the gang colors he was wearing and told him to get the (insert colorful expletive here) out of my house. I gave up watching the sewer, aka network TV, including all the pay services, years ago and have never regretted it. I consciously refuse to subject myself to “popular” culture including music, music videos, most anything that comes out of hollywood today and 99% of anything at the supermarket checkout stand. I shop locally every chance I get. I actually read real books. I have never had, nor will I have, a twitter account. I only spend about two hours a week on facebook, mostly to play a couple of games I like. I have no body piercings or tattoos (which really makes me weird as I was the only enlisted man on my ship with no tattoos). I am religiously observant. I do not depend on anyone for anything I can do myself. Even worse, I expect others to be as responsible as I am.

In today’s culture all these traits mark me as a white privileged, right wing, intolerant, homophobic racist. They are mostly wrong of course. I say mostly because I am intolerant of many things, for example racism or political correctness or religious intolerance or, as in the case of black lives matter or antifa, outright hate. As one of my heroes once said I also, “Don’t much care for quitters.”

As I look out at the world my grand kids are taking their first tentative steps into I fear for them greatly. I place the source of that fear squarely on the shoulders of “tolerance.” That will seem an odd thing to say to many who read this. Never the less it is so and I’ll tell you why.

We tolerate the hatred spewed by black lives matter to make up for something no one alive was responsible for and no one alive participated in.

We tolerate the near mindless violence of antifa instead of arresting them and locking them away to show that violence for the sake of violence should never be tolerated.

We tolerate every childish temper tantrum thrown by immature college students instead of demonstrating that rules are meant to be followed and that changing the rules requires a process to be followed and that everyone’s rights to be considered.

We tolerate the abuse of language itself by calling illegal aliens undocumented migrants, welfare dependency compassion, abortion women’s health and referring to illegal aliens “constitutional” rights. For all you public school graduates the rights enumerated in the Constitution apply only to U.S. citizens and you don’t get citizenship simply because you managed to get cross the border.

We tolerate the abuse of the individual by major corporations, Google and Firefox as examples, as well as massive federal, state and local government overreach in the name of political correctness.

We tolerate a death worshiping cult that still practices slavery, child abuse, rape, animal abuse, murder and genocide in the name of tolerance. Yes I am referring to islam and I know these things because I study current events in moslem controlled countries and have read the only two books moslems read, the koran and the hadith. You should read them as well. Even more sad is that while we make constant excuses for an evil ideology posing as a religion we allow constant attacks on Christianity by anyone whose feelings are hurt.

We tolerate the massive and total failure of the public education system even as we throw more and more money into that tragically flawed system. My grandchildren were not taught American history to any level of proficiency but can readily name all “52 genders.” Given the product turned out I would have to say that many teachers and administrators are vastly overpaid.

We tolerate constant abuse by the homersexual and so called “transgender” gaystapo. They seek not to engender compassion but the complete and utter destruction of anyone that does not fully endorse their lifestyle of risky behaviors. Personally I don’t care if you want to place an excrement covered penis in your mouth but I am not going to let you define such an act as an act of love, let alone normal. I don’t care if some guy wants to wear a dress and makeup but you have no right to be in my granddaughters bathroom or locker room. I don’t care if you were feeling like a girl when I called you sir, you don’t get to sue or harass me because I “misgendered” you. Nor do any of these behaviors qualify you for special rights. The fact that a handful of gay activists took over the American Psychiatric Association and voted to eliminate homersexuality from the diagnostic manual does not mean these behaviors are in fact normal.

We tolerate the massive invasion of our country by anyone who can get here, including vile gang members who have “relatives” here. We tolerate billions of our hard earned tax dollars given to illegal aliens that could be better spent on our veterans, or our homeless, or our mentally ill or even our infrastructure.

We tolerate the erasure of history by hate mongers.

We tolerate judicial tyranny.

We tolerate lying career extortionists, uhm, I mean politicians.

We tolerate a proven beyond a doubt fake media.

I could go on but I think you are beginning to see my point. Tolerance can be a beautiful thing but tolerance can also be a powerful weapon. Americans are nearing the point where we are about to “tolerate” ourselves out of the rights we asserted in the formation of our country. We are nearly at the point where we will “tolerate” the world out of the greatest, most productive, most inventive and most compassionate country in human history. Abraham Lincoln is supposed to have said that in the course of history, “we will be remembered in spite of ourselves.” If we are not careful I think we will be remembered as the generation that fully embraced the most avoidable tragedy in human history.

Kicking The Dog

When I write about a potential for civil war in America many scoff at the idea. Some call me a “wild eyed extremist” or “rabble rousing hate monger.” The more polite simply accuse me of misreading current events. Nothing would make me more happy than for the latter to be proven correct. The former are simply name callers who have to check their I-phones each morning to determine what the truth is today.

A small but highly vocal, and deeply entrenched in the machinery of government, media, corporate leadership and education, minority seems to have wrenched control of America from the normal, hardworking people in flyover country. Aided and abetted by traitorous “republicans” (McCain, Flake, Snow, Collins et al) and spineless college administrations, mayors and entertainment types, their march towards anarchy continues nearly unabated.

Consider the following.

A nursery in California is being prosecuted under the Clean Water Act for plowing its own land without federal permission. The Duarte Nursery is fighting a suit brought by the Obama Justice Department. The suit was the result of the Army Corps of Engineers determining that pools of water running alongside the furrows created by plowing a wheat field were “navigable waters.” The government went so far as to insist that the furrows generated by plowing were “mini-mountains” that disrupted the “ephemeral” puddles of water on the land. Astoundingly a so called judge agreed with the Corps and the Justice Department. Hoping to avoid $45 million in penalties the nursery agreed to a $1.1 million settlement. Under this definition virtually every lawn in America becomes a “navigable waterway.” Are you ready for the Army Corps of Engineers?
The Student Government Association at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green voted to approve its recommendation that the school make tuition “free” for all black students. The resolution passed 19-10 and supposedly sends a message to university faculty, administrators and everyone else that slavery is “a debt that will never be paid.” I can’t help but wonder if the college ever bothered to teach that slavery was abolished in the US more than 150 years ago. I’m no expert but is this “tuition plan” not the definition of institutional racism? And what about those of us whose family’s immigrated here after slavery was abolished? Why must we be forced to pay taxes to fund this? What about blacks who came here willingly and were never held in slavery, do we have to pay for them as well? Are the descendants of black slave holders included with us poor white folk in having to pay for this? If not, why? Finally, just how long do these mis-educated liberal miscreants think the rest of us will stand for this?
Deep state poster boy and Clintonista hack Robert Mueller is conducting an investigation in search of a crime. He knows it, the media knows it and every democrat elected knows it. Yet from the first day of Trump’s presidency each and every one of these progressive hate mongers have been dreaming for a criminal indictment or impeachment to accomplish what they could not at the ballot box. The conduct of Robert S.(is the S for scumbag?) Mueller shows that he willing to go to any lengths to get one or the other. He has hired a progressive dream team of democratic donors/insiders or former Clinton employees to form his hit squad. All of these people hate voters like you and me and if nothing else, they will be paid millions of dollars by you and me to subvert justice and, they hope, overturn a legitimate election. This is an outright political assassination. How long will will hard working, play by the rules Americans stand for this?
It was on a Saturday night in the San Francisco Bay area at approximately 9:30PM when 60 thugs rampaged through a BART train, robbing, beating, threatening and laughing at the plight of their victims. What you don’t know but the locals do is that local media embargoed this story for 36 hours. The San Francisco Chronicle was forced to begin releasing a few details such as “at least two victims suffered head/facial injuries requiring medical attention” the following Monday morning. A BART spokeswoman, Alicia Trost eventually confirmed that seven robberies had been committed with victims losing a duffel bag, a purse and five cell phones. Everyone reporting on the crime spree was very careful both to minimize its size, violence and most importantly, the fact the the sixty thugs involved were all young blacks. Local media, led by The East Bay Express, has diligently worked to protect the black criminal class from law enforcement. They have been so effective that most of the BART surveillance cameras are fake. Can’t have video evidence of blacks being responsible for seventy percent of the complaints filed by BART customers while making up ten percent of BART riders now can we? Sadly black crime on BART is out of control because BART administrators, city officials and liberal racists will not stand up for ordinary working class Americans. These kinds of attacks persist not because whites are racist but because the criminals feel absolutely safe on BART. When will it become fashionable in liberal circles to simply equally enforce the law regardless of skin color? How much longer before one of these flash mobs is met with armed resistance?
Then there are the liberal support groups. Ever heard of the Brady Campaign? In 2012, Jessica Ghawi was murdered by James Holmes. At the urging of the Brady Campaign, whose lawyers had to have known better, her mother Sandy Phillips, sued the store that sold the gun to the loser Holmes. I won’t claim to understand the pain of losing a child but I will call you out for departing from reason. Mrs. Phillips and her husband sold their home and belongings in Texas to attend Holmes’s trial in Colorado, after which they traveled around the country in a camper to preach the virtues of gun control. The financial consequences for Phillips and her husband, by acting on the Brady Campaign’s advice were dire. Not only was the case dismissed but the judge, correctly, ordered them to pay Lucky Gunner’s $200,000 plus legal fees. One can wonder if the Brady Campaign was hoping for a stroke of legal lightening in their favor. Or were they hoping to create a martyr for the cause. After all, martyrs make great fundraisers and in 2014-15 the Brady Campaign took in $25 million. Why don’t they pay Phillip’s judgment for her? In any case the Brady Campaign is the winner, they get the cash and the ability to infuse additional anger towards people like you and me into their base. Even so, one wonders just when people will get tired of being used, or in this case sacrificed, as political props.
Sometimes our wounds are self inflicted. The liberal, progressive democrats then take full advantage of our stupidity. Some two hundred former IRS employees have been rehired by the Kenyans holdovers (why are there any holdovers at this abusive agency?) at the IRS. These are those who illegally accessed private taxpayer information for political purposes, participated in the harassment of TEA Party groups seeking tax exempt status and generally failed to perform their duties. Trump, in a massive failure, has allowed the Kenyans IRS to remain intact. It will continue to be used against you and me as well as anyone deemed to be in support of the Trump administration. Once leaked, your information will never again be private and the liberals will target you mercilessly. This was painfully easy to see and even easier to prevent. Why it was missed boggles the mind. I mean, did we not fight a war over unfair treatment concerning taxation once before?
Finally there are the carefully orchestrated events like Charlotte. How long will ordinary Americans tolerate well paid, out of state rabble-rousers like antifa and blm manufacturing hate and discontent in their cities and towns? Which one of these staged riots will be the one to spin out of control because cowardly, politically correct police chiefs refuse to maintain public order? In that failure how emboldened will the paid criminal elements and their fellow travelers become? What limits, if any, will they place on their outrageous acts of domestic terror? Finally, what happens when good and decent citizens, tired of the unrelenting evil being foisted upon them, decide to act in their justified self defense?
Ordinary, law abiding, hard working, tax paying, play by the rules Americans are under near constant assault from all sides. We are regularly abused by the media, the education establishment, activist judges, extortionist politicians, politically correct social justice warriors, militant homersexual tyrants, elitist corporate CEO’s, ambulance chasing lawyers and vapid hollywood types who know only that they are famous and we peons should defer to them without question.
How long will Americans tolerate moslem no go zones in their country? How long will Americans allow businesses like Craft Draft 2 Go to be sacrificed on the alter of political correctness? How long will Americans tolerate mentally ill men demanding the right to impose themselves into women’s restrooms? How long will Americans tolerate being forced to reward illegal aliens with billions of tax dollars? How long will Americans tolerate a fake news media intent on fanning the flames of hate, made up victim-hood and the normalization of perversion? Finally, how long will Americans tolerate having their lives run by trained seal social justice warriors?
My grandpa, a country boy who fought in WWII, used to say that you get the first kick at the dog for free. After that he warned, you take your chances that the dog will bite back. How long I wonder before the majority of Americans decide to “bite” back?
I hope it never comes to that. I hope it never comes to a civil war. I hope that cooler heads will prevail. I pray daily that reason will again appear in everyone’s words and deeds. All I know though is that there are an awful lot of people out there intent on kicking us again and again and again and again…..

The Circular Firing Squad Rises Again

Charles Krauthammer, always presented as a conservative voice on the talking head shows he regularly appears on, recently opined in a piece titled “Sessions Lessons” on his concerns that Trump is “criminalizing” politics in America. To quote the once good Dr., “in America we don’t lock up political adversaries. They do that in Turkey. They do that (and worse) in Russia. Part of American greatness is that we don’t criminalize our politics.” Wow. I usually attribute that level of political observer irresponsibility to either outright demagoguery or willful blindness.

One would think that a trained psychiatrist would have more sense than to spout such nonsense. Alas, he has perpetrated this train of thought almost relentlessly since the election of President Trump. You would think that as a longtime political observer he, of all people, would understand that no matter how diligent his attacks on Trump are the leftists he apparently seeks to gain favor with will never accept him. Not even his “disability” will protect him from their long knives when he finally strays to far from their gospel. Anyone remember a Senator named Joe Lieberman?
Has he forgotten that Nixon gave the liberals the EPA? Wage and price controls? What happened to him?
Does he not remember that Bush Jr gave them the largest expansion of medicare in history? The TSA? Common Core? How did he fare with the liberal establishment?
Does he not remember the last eight years? How soon he seems to have forgotten how the Kenyan little Barry weaponized the IRS, the Justice Department, the NSA, CIA, FBI and a dozen other alphabet government agencies in his quest to fundamentally transform America into his version of a Soviet style Cuban dictatorship.
I have great respect for Charles intellectual ability which is why I was stunned to read such outright liberal propaganda from him. It is beyond curious that he would accord himself in such a manner knowing full well what his liberal audience will do to him eventually. Or perhaps he thinks, against the grain of liberal history, that he will find himself immune to their retributions?
It seems to me that he much prefers the Kenyans pen and phone to Trumps make America great again.
Donald Trump was never my candidate. While he has disappointed me on more than one occasion he has also given me much hope that it is not to late to save the country I love. Even now, as I prepare for the worst, I remain cautiously optimistic.
It was clear from the beginning that Charles was never going to accept anything but the “perfect” presidential candidate. Trump never claimed perfection. He only claimed to love America as much as those of us who voted for him. He only claimed that he would work as hard as we in flyover country do to rekindle the greatness that made America the light of the world. He only claimed that we the people were more important than the establishment, deep state traitors (my word not his) to America.
Charles has overcome much in his life and accomplished more than most people will ever dare to try. I respect that but seriously, Charles, it’s time to get out of the poisonous beltway and back into real America. You obviously have some catching up to do.

Liberals Democrats Progressives Are Liars By Choice

Liberals, democrats and progressives (there is virtually no distinction between the three) have been telling anyone who would listen just what they are for the last sixty years. People like me have been calling them out, nearly always as lone voices in the wilderness. Not until the arrival of the internet and now, “alternative media” (a term intended to belittle) have we had a platform that extended beyond the range of our voices. I, and many of you who read this, make use of this platform now. This is as it should be. Since the left is unrelenting in its desire to destroy America as it was founded, so must we be relentless in Americas defense.

No longer in control of what you and I see and hear the left has only one weapon left, the big lie. (They also love intimidation but that is another article) It is a weapon they employ with wild eyed and often reckless abandon. No subject is safe from the big lie but lets limit ourselves to one for the moment.

Consider the most famous holiday established by a liberal democrat progressive who hacked to death his girlfriend, Earth Day. How many lies must be believed to support this killer and his environmental agenda? More than I am willing to contemplate yet the effort on the “green” side has been going on for a long time.

On that first Earth Day in 1970, George Wald, a Harvard biologist breathlessly promised that civilization would end “within 15 or 30 years.” Um, hello George, have you looked around lately?

Deservedly forgotten Democratic Senator Gaylord Nelson, also in 1970, grimly informed us that within 25 years 75% to 80% of all animals on Earth would be extinct. Given the number of critters that routinely patrol my three quarters of an acre I’m going to have to disagree with you there Gaylord.

Former science adviser to the Kenyan little Barry John Holdren, in a 1971 ecology textbook, promised that 1 billion would die because of famines by the year 2020 because of a “new ice age.” Odd, it has been in the 90’s here all week, just like last year and the year before that and the year before that and, well I’m sure you get the point.

In 1972 The Club of Rome warned us that the Earth would be out of oil by 2003. Funny thing is that 2016 estimated oil reserves currently stand at 1,707 billion barrels. When I filled up my gas guzzling Dodge Durango RT (the one with the really big V8 engine) this morning I paid $2.28 a gallon. It’s not the .32 cents a gallon I remember as a kid but it’s not intolerable either.

Not to be outdone, so called population expert Paul Ehrlich warned that by the year 2000 England would not exist. As a proof of concept he wrote the manifestly discredited book The Population Bomb. I’m going to give Paul a halfsie here. England may not long exist but it is dying of moslem political correctness not environmental excess. There is not much great in great Britain any longer.

And so it has continued every day since. A non stop denial of reality by eco fascists that has lasted, if you use the first Earth Day as a measuring point, for 47 years. How many people will believe a lie that has been told to them for 47 years?

Apparently a lot. Consider South Australia. People who live there now suffer through routine blackouts and energy prices that have exploded to unimaginable levels. Energy prices are at levels now that wipe out savings and crush businesses. Remember, Australia is a first world country. I know, I have been there. Their suffering is needless. The entire country is fossil fuel rich.

Safely ensconced in their air conditioned, red wood decked homes the government has hijacked its people into third world status to show just how virtuous they are. The suffering of their people, the number of birds and bats chewed up by their wind turbined idols to political correctness, are completely irrelevant. They care more than you do about the planet. Get over it already.

I am using the environmental positions of democrats, liberals and progressives to illustrate that lying in the face of evidence, no matter how incontrovertible, is second nature to them. The subject of the lie is irrelevant. Big oil, big pharma, big candy, the Iraq war, gun control, religious intolerance of Christians, republican/Russian collusion, islam, abortion and a hundred others are simply a means to an end. The only thing that matters to them is the path to complete control over you and your life.

At this point the observant reader will say that sailor, you are painting with a very broad brush. While I agree there are some liberals, progressives and democrats who are sincerely seeking only the best for themselves and the planet, it has to be pointed out that these people are a minority. Let us not forget that for the better part of sixty years the big lies have been promoted from college on down, from hollywood to the so called news media.

It is this cadre of “intellectuals” that seek to manage our daily lives in the most minute detail. To reach their objective they need a lot of foot soldiers. College, for the last fifteen years or so, has existed primarily to provide supplemental cannon fodder for the left. Unions with their shrinking membership are no longer able to do it all. The left now has two full generations of often well meaning but completely misguided “college educated” activists. (Now you know why they insist on everyone getting a free college education) I’m sure you know them. They carry a mattress on their back to indict an innocent student or they barge into a restaurant and stage a bloody beheading in front of little kids. They call for “muscle” to remove journalists from their rallies, demand racially segregated “safe” spaces and white free days on campus. They see white marble as racist and black thugs as victims. What should frighten, wrong word, terrify everyone is that these people are not considered out of the mainstream in liberal, progressive democratic thought.

These are the people who have to check in with the Ministry of Truth everyday to find out what they believe. Facts bounce off these people the way job offers bounce off welfare queens. The proper position of anyone listening to a liberal, progressive or democrat is outright skepticism, after you finish laughing in their faces. Just remember these people have no sense of humor and they hate you. If you have to be around them I recommend extreme caution and carrying pepper spray.
