The Latest Lies from the Left - Republicans Lost for not Catering to Hispanics - HUH?

November 14th, 2008

So.. now we are hearing the liberal left (aka New Democrat Network) claim that Republicans lost because they “demonized” Hispanics and they failed to address the Hispanic vote’s immigration concerns.  What a load of crap!     amnesty The truth is - the Republicans have lost their base BECAUSE of their support of illegal aliens and their turning of a blind eye to businesses that hire them. They have lost their base because they have PANDERED to the likes of the National Council of La Ratza.

Simon Rosenberg, president and CEO of NDN – formerly the New Democrat Network — said that Republicans are now “paying a steep price for demonizing Hispanics” in their “anti-immigration rhetoric” – rhetoric that he said created the “fear of losing jobs to undocumented immigrants of Americans.”

And let me just state in no uncertain terms here - that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A HOMOGENOUS HISPANIC VOTE.  Being Hispanic does NOT make you a liberal or someone who supports the National Council of La Raza. They like to try to portray “the Hispanic vote” as if it IS homogenous and nothing could be more of an outright LIE than this.

I can tell you as a former Republican that I switched my affiliation to Independent because of Republicans like John Kyl and John McCain who are nothing but conservative turncoats who only deserve my utmost conservative CONTEMPT.  John Kyl ran his re-election campaign on border security and attacked his opponent because of his support for amnesty for illegal aliens. Then after he was elected, he became McCain’s buddy and tried to convince more Republicans to vote for the Shamnesty 2006 bill piece of crap legislation…  It is liars like these that we need to toss out on their asses from office.  The Republican party is just chock full of liars like these.. but so is the Democratic party.

Let me just point out activist groups such as You Don’t Speak for Me - a group of HISPANICS  who are working AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.  Does the National Council of La Raza consider their voices?

To the complete contrary - John McCain was actually PROVEN to support AMNESTY for ILLEGAL ALIENS  so.. if the “Hispanic vote” cared about amnesty - why did they NOT support John McCain?  It seems the TRUTH is that by supporting amnesty, John McCain actually LOST Hispanic support.  Even Ruben Navarette Jr - the fully pro-illegal commentator - expresses concern after the election that Barry Hussein Obama was not a friend to amnesty supporters.

Yet when it comes to immigration, Obama will have trouble keeping his promise of comprehensive reform from last summer. He will probably toss Latino supporters a bone by stopping construction of the border fence that he voted for in the Senate and ending the workplace raids that have caused so much disgust in the Latino community.

But nothing else. And if Latinos are paying attention and holding the new president to account, they’ll know they’ve been used. And, if honest with themselves, they’ll have something else to be disgusted about.

So this again proves that being Hispanic does not mean you think only the way the National Council of La Raza wants you to think. Even in the Hispanic community, support for Obama or McCain was divided.

And that is because - both were ignoring the issue of Immigration and Illegal Immigration during the campaign. It was the elephant in the room and continues to be.  The ONLY Presidential candidate who we KNEW FOR A FACT SUPPORTED AMNESTY WAS JOHN MCCAIN. We knew that because of his crafting of amnesty legislation with his buddy across the aisle Ted Kennedy.

YET even in the face of that overwhelming evidence that McCain was PRO-AMNESTY,  he failed to corner “the Hispanic vote”.  And that is because being Hispanic does not mean you support amnesty or you think in one way.

Of course if you take the BLACK vote you can see that the color of your skin sometimes DOES make a group think in a particular way.  Some 97% of  Black voters chose Barry Hussein Obama - what percentage of those voters actually knew ANYTHING about Barry Hussein Obama?  I’ll take a wild guess.. maybe 3%?

 And exit polls taken after voting ended showed an overwhelming support for Democrat Barack Obama among black voters, with close to 100 per cent in some states such as Florida (98 per cent) and Georgia (97 per cent).

Gee it sure is good to know there’s no more racism in the United States… NOT!

Back to Hispanic voters… and these “policy groups” that are nothing more than the propaganda arm of  the radical liberal left wing. This is the latest BS they want Americans to swallow:

David Mermin, a partner at Lake Research Partners, a national public opinion and political strategy research firm hired by La Raza to study American voters, said 62 percent of American voters are now “more interested in converting illegal immigrants into legal taxpayers than deporting them because they might be taking jobs.”

Gee nobody asked me to participate in this survey and I suspect they didn’t ask anyone who is like me. If they did, they would not be able to claim such idiotic things like “Americans are more interested in converting illegal aliens into legal taxpayers”… Was he asleep during the BACKLASH of June 2006 when Americans overwhelmingly shut down the phone lines at the Capitol to STOP SHAMNESTY?

Before anyone takes David Mermin or Lake Research Partners as some kind of non-partisan polling outfit, consider that by their own description they are a DEMOCRATIC POLLING GROUP as can be seen here in their “About President Celinda Lake” page:

Since its formation, Lake Research Partners has become one of the most respected Democratic polling firms in the country, with its Battleground poll widely recognized as one of the leading national issue and election thermometers. The firm’s work has moved the progressive agenda forward on a variety of issues

Funny how the obvious propaganda piece from The National Council of La Raza FAILS TO MENTION THAT LAKE RESEARCH IS TOTALLY IN THE TANK FOR DEMOCRATS AND “PROGRESSIVES”.

Another reference to their bias here:

Lake Research Partners is a national public opinion and political strategy research firm. Our principals are among the Democratic Party’s leading strategists, serving as tacticians and senior advisors to dozens of incumbents and challengers at all levels of the electoral process, as well as to a wide range of advocacy organizations, non-profit organizations, and foundations.

We are proud to do work for a number of outstanding clients, including: the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Governor’s Association (DGA), AFL-CIO, SEIU, CWA, IAFF, Sierra Club, Planned Parenthood, Human Rights Campaign, Emily’s List and the Kaiser Foundation.

One of our most newsworthy projects is our Battlegound Poll, which we conduct with our partners at the Tarrance Group. Together, we survey the year’s political landscape and point out critical issues that Washington can’t afford to ignore.

Apparently their polling is only too happy to IGNORE your input however…

Why Isn’t Bush Protecting America? - Michael Cutler

January 21st, 2008

Excellent article by Michael Cutler - former INS agent - in NewsWithViews. Here is a brief synopsis of his background:

Michael Cutler

Michael W. Cutler graduated from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York in 1971 with a B.A. in Communications Arts and Sciences. Mr. Cutler began working for the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) in October 1971 when he entered on duty as an Immigration Inspector assigned to John F. Kennedy International Airport. In August 1975 he became a Criminal Investigator (Special Agent) for the INS at NYC.

He rotated through virtually every squad in the Investigations Branch. From 1988 until 1991 he was assigned as the INS representative to the Unified Intelligence Division (UID) of the DEA in New York. In 1991 he was promoted to the position of Senior Special Agent and was assigned to the Organized Crime, Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) which required that he work with members of other law enforcement agencies including the FBI, DEA, ATF, U.S. Customs and local and state police as well as law enforcement organizations of other countries including Israel, Canada, Great Britain and Japan, to conduct investigations of aliens involved in major drug trafficking organizations. He retired from the INS in February 2002, after a career that spanned some 30 years.

I’d say Michael Cutler has a lot of credibility that backs up his opinion on our immigration laws wouldn’t you? Here is what he has to say on the subject…

An excellent article appears in today’s edition of the Houston Chronicle and focuses on two criminals. One criminal, a man identified as Juan Leonardo Quintero, an illegal alien from Mexico committed a series of crimes including what is described as “indecency with a child and unlawful re-entry after deportation. Upon his unlawful re-entry into the United States he is now accused of the cold-blooded murder of a Houston police officer.

The other alleged criminal, a United States citizen, Robert Lane Camp, is charged with violations of federal immigration laws.

*snip*

Time and time again we have heard politicians from both sides of the political aisle assert that illegal aliens do the work that Americans won’t do. Perhaps the loudest cheerleader of this flawed reasoning has been none other than President Bush himself. As I have stated on so many occasion that I have lost count as to how many times I have said this, I am compelled to make the point that if there are Americans who will trudge off to work in coal mines and steel factories, if there are Americans who will go to work as firefighters, racing into burning buildings at huge risk, to their own safety to attempt to rescue total strangers, if there are American law enforcement officers who have no idea about what may await them the next time their two-way radio crackles and if their are Americans who are willing to drive garbage trucks and others who will do what my dad did, go to work on a construction site, one of the most hazardous jobs you can do, then I believe that Americans will take any job, no matter how arduous, no matter how dirty and no matter how dangerous, provided that when they receive their paychecks they are able to support themselves and their families. As the author Homer Hickam stated when he spoke at the Sago Mine disaster memorial service in West Virginia two years ago, “There is no water holier than the sweat off a man’s brow!”

The issue is not that Americans are lazy or afraid of an honest, hard day’s work, it is a matter of wages and working conditions. Illegal aliens are vulnerable and hence easy to exploit. They work for wages that would not provide the average American with the ability to support themselves and their families.

The failure of our government to enforce the immigration laws against those American citizens who violate the immigration laws is, in large measure, responsible for the massive influx of illegal aliens who have poured across our nation’s borders.

While many of these illegal aliens simply seek to get an unauthorized (illegal) job to send money home, a significant portion of the illegal alien population have criminal histories and/or are involved in various criminal activities and even terrorist activities. The problem is that our officials have no way of knowing the true identities of these illegal aliens. We have no way of knowing how many are her. We have no way of knowing who among them are fleeing prosecution in their own countries or a third country for committing serious crimes. We have no way of knowing who among them have come to support terrorist activities, whether this means fund raising, conducting surveillance or planning the next attack.

*snip*

Police Officer Rodney J. Johnson lost his life, for several reasons and all of them go back to the failings of the federal government to secure our nation’s borders, prosecute, as a matter of routine, those Americans who aid or abet illegal aliens to either enter the United States illegally, or to enable them to violate various laws once they have run the border by providing them with jobs or other incentives that encourage them to ignore and violate our nation’s borders and ignore and violate our nation’s immigration laws which, also may enable these illegal aliens to commit crimes not comprehended within the Immigration and Nationality Act alone but include, other criminal statutes that deal with drugs, weapons and crimes of violence. I found an additional article about the murder of Police Officer Johnson. According to the news story that ran last year at ABC News:

“Johnson received a commendation for valor for pulling several children from a burning building.

He leaves behind a wife who is also a police officer and their five children.”

What words of consolation or any other act can undo the horrific damage done to the lives of heroic Police Officer Rodney Johnson’s wife or children? About the others who were members of his family or were his friends? The point is that with all of the stories about the rights of illegal aliens, it is rare if not downright impossible to find stories about the rights of decent people who lose their lives to the crimes committed by individuals who don’t even, legally, have the right to be inside the borders of our nation?

The children of Officer Johnson will never see their father again. His wife will never again see him or take comfort from him. He was her husband and the father of their children. Unfortunately he is not the first law enforcement officer to die at the hands of an illegal alien nor will he be the last. While the article did not address the crime committed against a child that initiated his ultimate deportation from the United States, I wonder who the child was and how badly he hurt that child. I wonder about the future of that child who may well have been terribly traumatized. Why is no one talking about the rights of that child?

*snip*

A final thought. In reading the article, consider how the apparent close cooperation between ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) with members of the Houston Police Department yielded the results that this joint effort brought to fruition. It is time for all communities to work with ICE and other agencies to address the illegal immigration crisis confronting our nation. It is time that those who seek to become our nation’s next president speak out clearly on their intentions to deal with illegal immigration and the huge risks this creates for our nation and our citizens.

We the People need to make our frustration, indeed, rage known about the need for our nation to secure the borders and create meaningful integrity within the entire immigration system.

Terrorists at Guantanamo treated better than Border Agents in Prison

October 22nd, 2007

Just when you think there can’t be any more said in outrage about the case of Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos, someone like Wes comes along and spells it out very eloquently indeed!  Thank you for saying what we have all been thinking or trying to say!

An officially-sanctioned ‘inmates running the asylum’
The good guys rot while the bad guys get fat


Wes Vernon

October 22, 2007


This column hopes to awake from a bad dream any minute now. Bad enough two of our protectors are in solitary confinement. But enemies who want to kill us are living very well on our money?

Time to wake up

This can’t be real.

It can’t be true that a drug smuggler illegally crashing our border was given immunity to testify against the law enforcement officers who tried to arrest him, can it?

Oh, but our government, which we depend on to “preserve, protect and defend” our system of government, would naturally seek to “preserve” and “protect” our free society by “defending” us against the bad guys, right?

I mean surely our own government would never seek out a dangerous drug-smuggling criminal in a foreign country and bring him back here and grant him immunity to testify against the border guards who blocked his efforts to destroy our kids’ lives. Surely, that didn’t really happen, did it?

It did? And they gave this guy free health care and unconditional border-crossing cards to testify against those pesky border patrol agents. Really? You have got to be kidding.

In cahoots with the criminal

By now, those not inhabiting another planet for the last year are aware of the plight of Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean. They were sentenced to eleven and twelve years in federal prison, respectively, for wounding a Mexican drug smuggler who brought 743 pounds of marijuana across the U.S./Mexican border at Texas.

Shooting at a drug smuggler: naughty, naughty!

Later, the U.S. government learned that the smuggler — Osbaldo Aldrete-Davila — had been shot in the buttocks as he avoided arrest, although the agents thought they had missed him before he reached the Mexican border because he had kept running, jumped into a waiting truck, and showed no signs of injury.

Upon learning of the drug dealer’s complaint, the keystone cops at the Department of Homeland Security did their “poor baby” routine and swung into action.

To cut to the quick, the agents ended up being prosecuted for shooting an unarmed victim, even though that “victim” while on the run had pointed at them with what looked like a gun.

An update

So now, some 48 (at last count) members of Congress have fired off a letter to Michael Mukasey — President Bush’s nominee for Attorney General urging that he “consider and address our concerns related to” the imprisoned agents.

The congressmen get right to the nub of the prosecutorial abuse question when they suggest, “Given the close personal relationships between [the federal prosecutor in the case, Johnny] Sutton, President Bush and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, numerous questions regarding the propriety of this prosecution remain unanswered.”

To make matters worse

Led by Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and John Culberson (R-Tex.), the letter continues, “Both officers are being held in Special Housing Units (SHU) of medium security facilities and are confined to a single cell 23 hours a day in conditions worse than those enjoyed by suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay detention facility. Ignacio Ramos was placed in SHU because he was assaulted in a different facility earlier this year and his assailants were never charged.”

Further, the lawmakers note that while Ramos’s status as a former cop is “problematic” in prison, the federal guidelines specify that “administration detention status is supposed to be ‘non-punitive,’ used for ’short periods…not to exceed 90 days,” as opposed to the 10 months that Ramos has experienced.

The comparison

While the agents spend 23 hours a day in their cages — with only 1 hour outdoors permitted each day — detainees at Guantanamo are granted the privilege of living in a communal setting that offers more freedoms and perks. Moreover, these terrorists are allowed 9 hours access to exercise and recreational facilities. Picnic and ping-pong tables are available to them, as are soccer fields and volleyball courts.

No special meals or extra food privileges for the border agents. At one point, Ramos lost over 30 pounds, while at Guantanamo Bay, terrorists take in 4200 calories daily, with weekly Sunday ice cream parties and access to McDonalds or Subway. Some detainees have added pounds since arriving at “Club Gitmo.”

Ramos and Compean eat alone in their cells, while GITMO detainees enjoy meals eaten together within cellblocks.

No TV for the patrol agents, whereas the killers or would-be killers of innocent human beings have permission to watch Arabic programs and soccer highlights.

Ramos and Compean are not allowed access to the library, have a limited commissary, and cannot participate in education or general work programs. At Guantanamo, however, the detainees receive visits from librarians with books and magazines. Also chess, checkers, and playing cards are provided on request.

After a brutal assault by 5 inmates, Ramos did not get to see a medical doctor for several days. At GITMO, the cutthroats and would-be suicide bombers get the same medical treatment as U.S. military personnel in state-of-the-art medical facilities.

Labeling people racist doesn’t make it so

October 16th, 2007

I’m amazed at how hateful our opposition is in their relentless pursuit of labeling us as racists. They try to find every nuance they can to paint us as the bad guys when all we want is for our laws to be enforced. I don’t care what group of uneducated, unskilled people invade my country, my town and my neighborhood - I’m not going to like them and it is simply because they came here in total disrespect to our laws and they continue to disrespect our laws by trafficking in stolen identities to have their “American Dream”. People who sympathize with those who come here illegally are the true enemy to this country. In the old days of our founding fathers, those who gave aid and comfort to the enemy in those days were called traitors and today that is not any less true.

This particular group of people who are in my town as illegal aliens and throughout most of this country just happen to be Mexican as well as from other South American countries like Guatemala, Ecuador etc. I have friends who are immigrants and in fact, more of my friends are immigrants than not. They hail from Latvia, Brazil, Ecuador, Venezuela, China etc… and they are great people all. If I could actually understand any of the Mexicans who have flooded my town (since most don’t speak English) then maybe I’d find some of them to be quite nice people. But since they don’t have the decency to learn our language and immigrate here legally, and they steal into our country in the dark of night, I don’t find much at all in common with them and thus I would like them to get out of my country. I will not apologize for feeling that way to ANYONE. This does not make me a racist. It is THEY who keep us apart by ignoring our customs, our culture, our language and trying instead to bring their own country here and plant it. It is THEY who are the ones who promote differences instead of assimilating into OUR country. You don’t go to FRANCE and expect them to speak SPANISH now do you? Or maybe you do and if so, you will have a very hard time in FRANCE.

We are getting very angry at what we see being allowed to happen - yes that is true. We are pissed off in fact and most of that anger is not directed at the illegal aliens but at our incompetent politicians who have placed us on a collision course through terrible trade policies like NAFTA. I don’t support NAFTA and the damage it has done to many economies in the name of the almighty buck. I shouldn’t have to make room for the people that NAFTA has driven from their own country. Their own government willingly pushes them out the door. It’s not our fault! We are ALL victims of the elites controlling this country and this coming race/civil war is playing right into their hands.
