Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Just another day in Leftopia

Cholera, typhus, TB, bubonic plague, and now this.

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Hoft sums up the whole oozy mess nicely: “Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.” Puts me in mind of the assessment of LA offered years ago by my old friend and LA native Chris Pfouts, may he forever rest in peace: “A suppurating boil on the landscape, with plenty of bad cops to keep anybody from stealing the pus.” He was even righter than he knew at the time, looks like.

A tale of two immigrants

One admirable, worthy, and welcome, and one…NOT.

Perhaps—I do not know—this is what happened to Ms. Omar in the four years she spent in a refugee camp in Kenya as a child. Or perhaps she became acquainted with Islamist anti-Semitism in Minnesota, where her family settled when she was 12. In any case, her preoccupation with the Jews and Israel would otherwise be hard to explain.

Spreading anti-Semitism through all these channels is no trivial matter—and this brings us to the question of resources. “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Ms. Omar tweeted in February, implying that American politicians support Israel only because of Jewish financial contributions. The irony is that the resources available to propagate Islamist ideologies, with their attendant anti-Semitism, vastly exceed what pro-Israel groups spend in the U.S. Since the early 1970s the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has spent vast sums to spread Wahhabi Islam abroad. Much of this funding is opaque, but estimates of the cumulative sum run as high as $100 billion.

Thousands of schools in Pakistan, funded with Saudi money, “teach a version of Islam that leads [to] anti-Western militancy,” according to Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy—and, one might add, to an anti-Semitic militancy.

The allegation that Jewish or Zionist money controls Congress is nonsensical. The Center for Responsive Politics estimates that the Israeli government has spent $34 million on lobbying in Washington since 2017. The Saudis and Qataris spent a combined $51 million during the same period. If we include foreign nongovernmental organizations, the pro-Israel lobbying figure rises to $63 million—less than the $68 billion spent lobbying for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

In 2018 domestic American pro-Israeli lobbying—including but not limited to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or Aipac—totaled $5.1 million. No comparable figures are available for domestic pro-Islamist lobbying efforts. But as journalist Armin Rosen observes, Aipac’s 2018 total, at $3.5 million, was less than either the American Association of Airport Executives or the Association of American Railroads spent on lobbying. Aipac’s influence has more to do with the power of its arguments than the size of its wallet.

Now consider the demographics. Jews were a minority in Europe in the 1930s, but a substantial one, especially in Central and Eastern Europe. Today Jews are at a much greater disadvantage. For each Jew world-wide, there are 100 Muslims. In many European countries—including France, Germany, the Netherlands and the U.K.—the Muslim population far exceeds the Jewish population, and the gap is widening. American Jews still outnumber Muslims but won’t by 2050.

The problem of Muslim anti-Semitism is much bigger than Ilhan Omar. Condemning her, expelling her from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, or defeating her in 2020 won’t make the problem go away.

Islamists have understood well how to couple Muslim anti-Semitism with the American left’s vague notion of “social justice.” They have succeeded in couching their agenda in the progressive framework of the oppressed versus the oppressor. Identity politics and victimhood culture also provide Islamists with the vocabulary to deflect their critics with accusations of “Islamophobia,” “white privilege” and “insensitivity.” A perfect illustration was the way Ms. Omar and her allies were able to turn a House resolution condemning her anti-Semitism into a garbled “intersectional” rant in which Muslims emerged as the most vulnerable minority in the league table of victimhood.

As for me, I eventually unlearned my hatred of Jews, Zionists and Israel. As an asylum seeker turned student turned politician in Holland, I was exposed to a complex set of circumstances that led me to question my own prejudices. Perhaps I didn’t stay in the Islamist fold long enough for the indoctrination to stick. Perhaps my falling out with my parents and extended family after I left home led me to a wider reappraisal of my youthful beliefs. Perhaps it was my loss of religious faith.

In any event, I am living proof that one can be born a Somali, raised as an anti-Semite, indoctrinated as an anti-Zionist—and still overcome all this to appreciate the unique culture of Judaism and the extraordinary achievement of the state of Israel. If I can make that leap, so perhaps can Ms. Omar.

Not at all likely, I’d say. It’s readily apparent that Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Ilhan Omar-Elmi are completely opposite sides of the Somali/Muslim coin; Omar-Elmi’s lack of character, integrity, and perspective—along with her visceral, abiding rage and arrogance—render the odds of her ever developing maturity and humility enough to rethink her prejudices very long ones indeed. Increasing those odds astronomically is Omar-Elmi’s total immersion in Leftist politics and ideology, based as they are on nurturing notions of grievance, injustice, and entitlement among its hate-filled adherents. Add it all up and what you have is a snarling, rabid hyena that ain’t EVER gonna change its spots.

Cost-benefit analysis

Skeptic uncorks another of his truly righteous, balls-out screeds that demands to be promoted from comments-section obscurity to more prominence here on the Big Show.

If there’s anything dumber than a Cuckservative, I have no idea what it would be. I had the misfortune of being at a small political gathering a few days back with a local cuck-radio host, who is always babbling about his ‘true conservative principles’ and how Orange Man Bad violates them. The topic at the moment was immigration, particularly third world immigration.

I advanced the opinion that the proper amount of immigration from Africa was zero. The conversation went from there:

CRH: I’m all for African immigration, as long as they come the right way.

ME: That’s because you’re a moron. (Gasps from people around me)

CRH (looking at me slyly): Well, what about Ben Carson? (NOTE, I’ve heard him do this schtick on the radio before.)

ME: What about him?

CRH: Well, what if by not having immigrants from Africa, we were eliminating potential Ben Carsons? (At this point, he thinks he’s won.)

ME: Yeah, still good with that. What do you suppose the chances are of getting a Ben Carson from Africa?

CRH: Uhhh….what?

ME: Put it another way. How many thousands of immigrants from Africa would we have to import to get just ONE Ben Carson? There are 70,000 Somalis in Minneapolis; they elected Ilhan Omar. Have you heard of any Ben Carsons emerging from that 70,000?

CRH: Well, I don’t know, but that’s not the point.

ME: It’s exactly the point. To make good decisions, we have to look at statistics and evidence, not just hoping against hope. We know that by importing 70,000 Somalis we have created a little Mogadishu, in every sense of the word, in a formerly lovely city. Those 70,000 Somalis have elected perhaps the most anti-American Congresscritter in our history, and she’ll get elected for life. How does a Ben Carson alleviate that kind of damage? In all likelihood, even if one did emerge, he’d be killed and eaten by them.

CRH: So, you’re against Somalis. Don’t you find that a little racist?

ME: Maybe it’s a lot racist. I don’t give a shit. I’m just smart enough to know that if you want a first world country, you don’t bring in third world people.

I swear, when I read “It’s exactly the point,” I very nearly stood up and cheered out loud. But I saved the best for last. It involves BBQ, and you really oughta check it out if you missed it before. Trust me, you’ll enjoy it.

Trump doubles down, Omar rows it back

Even when she’s trying to “clarify” her America-hate, she can’t help but put her foot in her big mouth.

Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar claimed Saturday that she “probably” loves America more than people born in the United States.

Omar made the comments at the progressive Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia when asked why she often appears to be an opponent of American values, according to the Washington Examiner.

“There is something I get criticized for all the time,” she told the audience as she sat on a discussion panel.

“It is that I am anti-American because I criticize the United States. I believe, as an immigrant, I probably love this country more than anyone that is naturally born,” Omar said.

The congresswoman, who has often been accused of using anti-Semitic language because of her constant criticism of Israel, has claimed that the United States likes to talk about “American exceptionalism” abroad but it does not fulfill those values at home.

“So, that hypocrisy is one that I’m bothered by. I want America the great to be America the great,” she said.

It’ll improve by orders of magnitude the day you take the fuck off on back to Mogadishu, you slattern.

Days earlier she was jubilant about Somalia’s Independence Day.

No one should deny that she loves her country, I guess. It just ain’t this one.

Her comments Saturday come on the heels of a highly-publicized spat between her and Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has said the congresswoman hates America.

“Omar isn’t disappointed in America. She’s enraged by it,” Carlson said Tuesday night. “Virtually every public statement she makes accuses Americans of bigotry and racism. This is an immoral country, she says. She has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people.” (RELATED: Rep. Ilhan Omar Describes 9/11 Terror Attacks: ‘Some People Did Something)

Omar dismissed Carlson as  a “racist fool” over his comments.

Because OF COURSE she did. What else can she do now but fall back on that old-time, tried and true Democrat-Socialist blocking maneuver?

Carlson said Omar’s rebuttal was typical because “she learned young that crying racism pays.”

Not this time, I don’t think. We’ve already heard far too much of that tripe from other Democrat-Socialists, for decades now, to be in the market for more of the same from this miserable tapeworm.

As for Trump’s supposed faux pas, he remains cool, cocky, and crazy like a fox.

Omar, it turns out, is a massive liability for the Democrats. Making her the face of the Democrats is a pretty good way of triggering a GOP landslide, not just in the White House, but in the House of Representatives.

Among the working-class voters Democrats must win over to win the presidency, and, for that matter, both houses of Congress, Omar sports an abysmal 9% approval rating along with a 53% recognition rate. She’s the most unpopular of all of them. According to the Daily Wire:

A new internal Democrat poll in swing districts released on Sunday showed that socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are extremely unpopular and that they may cost the Democratic Party the presidency and the House in 2020.

“Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view,” Axios reported. “Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.”

This is deadly stuff, and clearly, Trump is targeting the weakest link among this far-left squad and seeking to get all of his Democratic opponents (blocking his border wall, refusing to pass any legislation both could agree on) personified as Omar. That’s important, because most voters who elect Democrats like their congressmen and don’t see the extremism of their votes. Omar, on the other hand, pretty well is identical in her voting patterns to them and why a GOP House majority is key for enacting his agenda.

Risk, sure. But great leaders always take risks. This is big-risk, big-reward politics. It’s the stuff from which political legends are made.

It is at that. And it’s a sheer pleasure to watch Trump so masterfully weaving it.

The FOSE principle

Fuck Off Somewhere Else, in full effect.

In just about every Western society I am aware of there is a sizable minority of probably between 10 and 20 per cent of the population who appear to be deeply and profoundly unhappy about the shape and the direction of their own country. This sentiment ranges from a sheer hatred and loathing of the society, which is deemed irredeemably unjust, oppressive, racist, and any number of other characteristics usually ending in -ist or -phobic, and it only deserves to survive if radically transformed, all the way to a milder disappointment and despondency that the society (and the general population) constantly fail to live up to one’s standards of what is good and desirable.

To all these people I always want to say: You know that you are not imprisoned and kept by force where you are, don’t you? If you really so passionately dislike just about everything about your country, you have to ask yourself a question – why suffer? why keep putting yourself through this endless unhealthy rage and frustration? There are many different types of societies around the world, some of which are without doubt a lot closer to your vision of what an ideal community should be like. Wouldn’t you be happier living somewhere else? It just doesn’t make sense to me that you would want to live in a place you don’t like when you have options to live in places you would.

Indeed, I would say that most people in that 10-20 per cent perpetually unhappy and whiny minority are the long-standing residents and only a minority of this minority happen to be the first generation immigrants. Most migrants, in fact, are both happy and grateful to be in their second home.

But whether you are a tenth generation or a first generation American (or Australian or British or French) you are always free to FOSE and I would really encourage you to do so. For your own sake. I’m a great believer that people as much as possible should be able to live in a society that reflects their values; if this is not possible in a country A then you should consider country B, C or D as your options for a much more fulfilling life, surrounded by people much like yourself, who will provide you with a real sense of community you are clearly not experiencing at the moment.

So to  Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, clearly with exception of the Mogadishu-born Omar, you can’t go to where you come from but you all can FOSE to a number of other wonderful countries around the world that embody your socialist aspirations much more than the United States. There is Venezuela, there is Cuba, there is any number of countries in the so called developing world that are more statist and more communitarian than the decadent West. There is also Scandinavia, which taxes a lot more and spends a lot more on the welfare state, though you might be disappointed to discover that the Nordics aren’t as socialist as you have been led to believe. But in any case, believe me, I would love nothing more to see each one of you happy and feeling truly at home. It breaks my heart to watch you suffer as you do at the moment. It’s like seeing people staying in relationships with completely incompatible partners, leaving them depressed, unhappy, unfulfilled. You have the power to change you circumstances. Consider all option, choose happiness. I did; so can all of you.

Hell with all that; personally, I don’t give a fat rat’s patoot whether a curdled, toxic bint like Omar is happy or not. What I DO care about is never having to endure another word of ignorant, self-righteous hectoring from the likes of her again. As an ungrateful, arrogant, narcissistic shrew incapable of appreciating the country that generously rescued her from a nasty, brutish, and probably short life in the shitholiest of shithole countries, I’d like nothing better than to see her ass shipped straight back to that wretched scar on the landscape where she was hatched. By force if necessary; I’m sure no more than two or three stout US Marines could handle physically rassling her into the cargo hold of whatever battered old C47 we dug up for her final flight back to Shitstainistan.

Omar, happy? In light of the character defects and personal shortcomings made so appallingly apparent by her daring to obnoxiously upbraid the very benefactor-nation that plucked her out of a hellish snakepit to provide her with the kind of safe, secure, comfortable life she could never have dreamed of attaining back home, I very much doubt it’s even a possibility for her. Her own vile nature condemns her to everlasting misery. Where I come from, that’s called justice.

Whoooaaa, big fellow!

So what with the same-old-crap nature of the news after the advent of The Trumpening, combined with the pressure of eking out my meager living every day, I haven’t felt just incredibly motivated to do any posting the past several days, as y’all were no doubt aware. But then up jumps this little slice of irritation.



Now, this is all just SOP, the state of play nowadays, right? Note that nowhere in this horrible, awful, abominable, horribly horrible “racist” Tweetstorm did Trump mention A) anybody’s name, or B) anybody’s race. All he did was exactly what he’s done from the very beginning: unabashedly articulate and bring right out into the open the very thing that Real Americans have been saying and thinking for a very long time now. In fact, I’ve already said the exact same thing here myself, and more than just once too.

I’m quite confident it won’t come as anything like news to any of you here when I inform you that the Left, as is their wont, went absolutely hyper-ballistic bug-fuck nuts immediately. TEH RACISM! TEH BIGOTRY! TEH HATE! THE UNAMERICAN, THIS-IS-NOT-WHO-WE-ARE AS A NATION OF TEH IMMIGRANTS, ILLEGAL OR OTHERWISE! TEH OUTRAGE! All perfectly par for the usual course by now, part of the dismal tide of RACIST!!™ that greets every timid, half-hearted proposal that maybe we might should maybe just possibly make a start at the beginning of some kind of effort to get something resembling control over our borders, just perhaps possibly. No, the shitlib shriekers will brook no such nonsense, and them going into orbit with their Mark-1 Mod-0 howls of high dudgeon are nothing whatsoever new. Certainly, it wouldn’t be nearly enough to penetrate my blogging torpor enough to inspire a mention of it tonight.

No, what annoyed the living crap out of me was this recockulus Powerline post, lovingly linked to by one Ed Driscoll. The Cuckitude is strong with these ones, folks. Try not to let any of it splash back on you, it’ll stain most any fabric you might happen to be wearing.

A BLUNDER OF EPIC PROPORTIONS
Regular readers know that I am a fan of President Trump, and more often than not, a fan of his use of social media. But today he committed the worst unforced error of his presidency, one that we will hear about from the Democrats from now until November 2020.

Now, as John avers right away, he is by no means your garden-variety #NeverTrumpTard cretin; no David French, he, and good on him. But he’s wringing his hands over nothing here. I mean, come ON, dude; we’re going to “hear about (this) from the Democrats from now until November 2020”? Think so, do ya? In the first place: no, it’s not likely we will. In reality, this is likely just another of their everything-but-the-kitchen-sink stratagems, another wheeze from their bag of tired tricks that will be gone in about ten days, like all the others.

Moreover: if they DO decide that this is the one worth really trying to make stick, well, so the fuck what? Does anybody expect anything more from them at this point than a relentless, dogged, unceasing campaign to smear Trump, snooter him, keep him tied up in knots and preoccupied with anything and everything they can conjure up until they finally stagger across something that DOES hit home? Unfortunately, poor John’s unfounded hysteria is only just gathering steam:

The Democrats have been self-destructing, with the progressives denouncing Nancy Pelosi and other members of the party’s leadership as racists. That conflict has dominated the news, and I am sure Trump is right that Nancy Pelosi would be happy to work out travel arrangements to get rid of the Squad. But now she won’t have to. Trump’s attack on the Squad was so foolish that I would assume it to be a case of drunk-tweeting, except that the President doesn’t drink.

This is the headline in my home town paper (“Leave the US, Trump tells liberal congresswomen of color”—M), the Minneapolis Star Tribune. It will be the same in every newspaper across the country…

Again: AND? If it wasn’t that, do you seriously think it wouldn’t have been something else, and that they wouldn’t have puffed and blown quite as hard over it?

Of course not. Didja maybe notice how meticulously they crafted that headline, putting words in Trump’s mouth in order to dishonestly imply that Trump thinks every “liberal congresswomen of color” should leave the US immediately? Anybody out there believe that was either coincidence, or an honest mistake committed in good faith by the insidious Strib hacks?

At the risk of beginning to sound repetitious: THIS IS WHO THEY ARE, THIS IS WHAT THEY DO. They lie, they manipulate, they scheme, they play their game of jiggery-pokery with the truth until it’s completely unrecognizable. Trump did not one thing more than what he’s done all along: he stated an obvious but purportedly off-limits truth bluntly, without hesitation, shame, or regret. Far from being any kind of foolish “blunder” on his part, that sort of thing is exactly why Real Americans elevated him to the Presidency over the entire clown car of shambolic, hapless GOPe perennial also-rans in the first place.

We WANT him to say things like this. We NEED him to say things like this. We DEMAND it of him, in fact. It is precisely moments like these that help to paper over the inevitable disappointment and frustration with him here and there, shoring up his base of support. It is just as Limbaugh often says: this is what fighting back looks like, people. If you find it puzzling or discomfitting, well, it’s probably because it’s been so very damned long since you’ve seen it. Fighting back aggressively against shitlib swine—rising from the long-accustomed defensive crouch to take the offensive on our behalf—has become an unfamiliar, alien thing to Real Americans by now.

Happily, as John finds himself ever more deeply mired in the slough of despond, Steve Hayward steps in to offer a measure of clarity and calm, if only a somewhat lukewarm one:

I concur in part, and dissent in part (as they say at the Supreme Court). I agree with John that this is a case where Trump should have followed the old adage, “When your enemy is destroying himself, get out of the way.”

Not if you see a way to speed them along.

But Trump’s animal instincts come into play here. With a wedge opening up between the Democratic Party leadership and the noisy Four Freshmen reps (and I can guarantee that AOC is the least popular member of the House Democratic caucus), Trump has now forced Pelosi and every other Democrat to come to their defense, elevating their profile further and cementing them as the authoritative face of the Democratic Party. What’s the downside of that?

Ain’t none. And you can be assured he knew just what he was doing, too.

And if you read Trump’s language carefully (and the absence of typos and other typical Trump flourishes like CAPITAL LETTERS and “sad” make me wonder if Stephen Miller wrote them), it is like his clumsy Charlottesville remarks, taken out of context and twisted. Trump’s subtle target here is multiculturalism and “diversity”—the tacit premise of the left that America should be guilty and abject before the supposedly “oppressed” nations of what we used to call the Third World. Trump goes way too far as usual, but his bit about “come back and show us how” is actually a good argument. Once again, Trump may know what he is doing. What is it the old left liked to say? “Heighten the contradictions!”

Actually, Trump’s Charlottesville remarks weren’t “clumsy” at all; they were carefully excised from their proper context, distorted, and lied about so as to create something the toxic shitweasels of the shameless Left could use to their advantage. And they’re still being used that way, and will go right on being so used, as long as the Housebroken Right can be counted on to play along. Any among us who doesn’t expect such from the Left by now is mentally deficient, a pure simpleton.

I still wish Trump would lose his phone. But the over-reaction to this is utterly predictable.

Of course it was. Then, after letting this froth and boil for a week to ten days, it’ll be on to the next contrived Democrat-Socialist tempest in a teapot. Lather, rinse, repeat; count on it, the cycle is as reliable as an atomic clock. Or has anybody seen that nuthatch habitué, whats’ername, that Trump supposedly “raped” at Bloomingdales or Neiman-Marcus or someplace, around? Any ideas where the Democrat-Socialists’ favorite big-donor pedorapist, Jeffrey Epstein, might have suddenly taken himself off to? Say, whatever happened to that nice Alva Johnson lady anyway, she seemed like a decent sort?

What Trump has done here, is doing, is the very thing the Vichy GOPe’s Coup Cucks Clowns always refused to: he’s staying on the offensive, taking the fight to his enemies by any and all means he can think up. That’s just in his nature, bless his cantankerous heart. It’s yet another reason why I remain solidly in his camp, and most likely will for the duration. For now, I’ll let the last word on this brouhaha be Sefton’s; I anticipate having plenty more to say myself shortly, perhaps enough to break it out into a new post.

I don’t think I need tell you the reaction this received from the casting couches to the faculty lounges to the Lido Deck of The Kristol Ship of Fools, but my reaction is “fuckin’ A.” Amazing how despite being painted as irredeemably racist, sexist, bigoted, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobic, oppressive to non-whites and illegitimately founded, millions of people from all over the world (and possibly the M-79 star system) risk their lives, their children’s lives and other children’s lives to get here. Why is that Kaepernick? Why is that Rapinoe? Shouldn’t you and your ilk be doing everything you possibly can to dissuade people from coming here? No, of course not, because you and everyone like you lack even two brain cells to rub together to ignite even a spark of a clue as to what the reality is. Many people see the miracle that is this nation from the misery and squalor of the third world shit-holes they seek to escape, while far too many others sadly are being enticed here as a means to overwhelm and collapse us from within, while filling up the voter rolls of the Democrat Party and depressing the wages and even displacing the American worker so the Koch/CoC whores can squeeze one last penny out of the strained cloaca of the golden goose before it disappears in a bloody mass of feathers and fat.

From a tactical standpoint, this is once again Trump being brilliant. He has forced the Democrat-Left Media Complex to choose sides, and by defending Nancy Palsi from being labeled as a racist, he’s put her in the uncomfortable position of having to agree with him in order to defend herself from the charge. No doubt her enemies are going to have a field day with that while spewing even more insanity to turn off even more voters.

Fuckin’ A, buddy, right down the line. Really, y’all, a “blunder of epic proportions”? Only for the sinking Cruise Ship Cuck crew, too staid, dainty, and clueless even now to bother noticing the water slopping over the gunwales—much less save themselves by grabbing a bucket and bailing.

Second look at Dunkin’ Donuts?

Having grown up where I did, I was always way more of a Krispy Kreme guy myself. Maybe I need to rethink some things.

The world famous doughnut maker Dunkin’, outraged that some franchises are not using the required E-Verify system to make sure its workers are documented, has moved to oust the owners and take over the restaurants.

According to several reports, the Massachusetts-based breakfast and lunch restaurant, which recently changed its name from Dunkin’ Donuts, has sued to stop those franchise owners from operating.

The most recent suits were filed in Delaware and Pennsylvania, “amid what appears to be a crackdown on franchisees employment verification practices,” according to Restaurant Business.

A post from Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, said, “Each of the lawsuits is similar. They each said that Dunkin’ reviewed employment verification documents and practices, found violations at the subject franchisee companies, terminated the operators’ franchise agreements and then swiftly moved to remove the franchisees from the restaurants.”

The doughnut, sandwich, and coffee firm has said it won’t comment on pending legislation.

Quietly doing the right thing without any fanfare, publicity-seeking, or chest-thumping over their superior morality: this right here is what proper corporate responsibility, ethics, and citizenship look like, people. Hats off to ’em, I say. If more American companies took Dunkin’s approach to E-Verify, our illegal-alien problem would rapidly be a thing of the past. If cake donuts ain’t your bag, you might at least consider dropping them a line expressing your support and thanks. I did.

Fake news is real

After seeing these truly horrendous, stomach-turning photos of the nightmarish conditions endured by detained refugees at the southern border, I have to just come right out and say it: this is intolerable, and inhuman, and Trump should be held accountable for…for his…for…that is to say…ummm…

Oops.

The Hill, among other lying liars, is fobbing these and a shit-bucket more photos off as current—and all Trump’s fault, natch. More from the AP:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Since the government acknowledged last month that the Trump administration had lost track of nearly 1,500 immigrant children, the debate over what that means and who is to blame has roiled Twitter. A look at the partisan claims and a reality check behind the latest immigration fight:

THE 2014 PHOTOS
—“Speechless. This is not who we are as a nation.” — Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa, former Los Angeles mayor now running for governor, referring in a tweet Sunday to photos showing young-looking immigrants in steel cages.

—“This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible.” — Jon Favreau, who was speechwriter for President Barack Obama, referring Sunday to the same photos.

THE FACTS: The photos, taken by The Associated Press, were from 2014, during the Obama administration, but were presented by liberal activists as if they showed the effects of Trump’s immigration policy now. Villaraigosa, Favreau and some others deleted their tweets when the mistake was pointed out.

Because of course they did. Hey, if the Tweet is gone it never happened, right, guys? Ace responds:

“Mistake.”

I noticed no one was deplatformed for promoting fake news, conspiracy theories, and invading privacy by posting pictures of the migrants.

Yeah, funny that. Funny, also, how every last one of these Enemedia “mistakes” only ever cut the one way. Why, one might almost get the impression that they’re not “mistakes” at all, but something more along the lines of being a strategy. Almost.

Y’know, I really must confess that—just once in a now-and-then—there are days when I truly cannot WAIT for the shooting to start.

PIgs take flight

Julie Kelly praises AOC. No, seriously, you guys.

The crisis at the southern U.S. border proves at least one thing to be true: Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is more honest than Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and his fellow anti-Trump Republicans.

Ocasio-Cortez, to her credit, has never tried to fool the American people or her constituency by suggesting she wants anything less than open borders. Lawmakers on the Left, including the roster of Democratic presidential candidates, have made it clear we must accept an unlimited influx of refugees from Central America. The treatment of migrant children, they tell us, is a national disgrace and an international scourge. Border patrol agents are criminals but the tens of thousands of Central American citizens illegally entering our country each month are not, they insist. Overflowing intake facilities are compared to Nazi concentration camps, and Donald Trump is Adolf Hitler.

I don’t know about you, but I’ll take that sort of unabashed honesty—no matter how insane, dangerous, and historically illiterate it is—over the deceptive and duplicitous machinations of alleged “conservatives” like Romney. To her credit, AOC doesn’t pretend to be someone she’s not—staged and dated photo-op notwithstanding. Give me a truthful authoritarian over a phony conservative any day. At least we know who we’re dealing with.

The poseurs on the so-called Right have contributed more to the current immigration crisis than anyone on the Left, and for that, they should forever be banished from any position of power in the Republican Party.

How the hell you gonna do THAT, pray tell? Those frauds are the Republican Party, a huge majority of it. But let’s get back to pounding on Mittens, shall we?

Romney, a well-known flip-flopper, ran as an immigration hawk in 2012. He was for a border wall before he was against it. When he posed as the “severely conservative” Republican candidate for president, Romney supported a vague deportation plan for 11 million illegals, the hiring of more border agents and imposing obstacles for illegals to access education and employment opportunities. He blasted President Obama’s failed policies. “We will stop the flow of illegal immigration into this country, I’m convinced of that,” he assured us in January 2012.

Exactly seven years later, in his consolation-prize role as Utah’s junior senator, Romney votedwith Democrats against stopping the flow of illegals, and instead opted to block progress on a border wall he once insisted we needed. In March, Romney joined 11 other Republican senators to halt Trump’s emergency declaration about the U.S.-Mexican border. Calling it only an “humanitarian crisis,” Romney blathered about constitutional boundaries and the rule of law as his excuse for thwarting Trump’s perfectly legal exercise of executive power.

Kelly moves on from that enjoyable evisceration to light into National Review, sniffy Sad Sacks French and Goldberg, and the Koup Kucks Klowns en masse, closing it all out with nothing but the truth.

Dumpster fire

You win some, you lose some. Yes, even Trump.

This week’s big leak about a major Immigration and Customs Enforcement operation was orchestrated by acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan in an effort to sabotage the raids before they were scheduled to take place, according to three current and two former senior administration officials.

In a move he said was to placate Democrats, President Trump announced on Saturday that the nationwide immigration enforcement operation planned to start Sunday — aimed at migrant families who illegally remain in the country despite being denied asylum — was called off to give lawmakers two weeks to work on a plan to fix legal “loopholes” he said have enticed migrants to come to the U.S.

However, all five officials who spoke with the Washington Examiner confirmed McAleenan’s decision to go rogue and stymie the operation was what prompted the White House to call off the 10-city operation.

“That’s law enforcement sensitive information. You just don’t reveal that,” the second official said. “It gets people hyped up. It gets the NGOs activated, and then anyone wearing a jacket with the ICE name on it is really chastised. Cities are coming out saying, ‘Here’s how you can protect yourself against it.’”

That same official said the “worst” consequence of the leak, especially if it was directed by the department’s leader, was how it endangered personnel.

Despicable? Of course. Seditious? Indubitably. An outright criminal demonstration of just how far the unaccountable minions of the Deep State are willing to go to protect their prerogatives and power? Without question.

Surprising? Hardly. And of all the people likely to find themselves blindsided by such a scummy, slimy maneuver, is it unreasonable to assume one Donald J Trump might be one of the last? Not on your life.

Houston, we have a problem. A BIG one.

What do you think of Donald Trump appointing Kevin McAleenan as acting Secretary of Homeland Security?
He seems qualified, though It’s unsure where his political loyalties are. I’m concerned because he is an “Obama Holdover” who was well regarded by Lord Obama himself and recent CNN reports about him are not hate filled which scares me. The man could be the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I think Trump was not as brutal as he should have been coming in to completely toss out any Obama holdovers and the results are internal opposition, extraordinary leaking, and loyalty only until a book deal can be made.

Regardless, it appears these moves have been in the works with Trump for weeks and McAleenan after all of that time he was appointed as “Acting “ Secretary which suggests he is not likely the first choice in a permanent replacement.

Of all the reasons one might be disappointed or disillusioned with Trump, his evident failure to recognize the threat to his agenda posed by these Obama stay-behinds is Numero Uno with a bullet as far as I’m concerned. And this is only the latest example, of WAY too many. I’ll let Liz Shield say it for me:

When are these leakers going to be hunted down and punished? Anyone who is leaking information from the White House needs to be discovered and punished severely. It’s dangerous to have unelected bureaucrats deciding to influence policy by trying to embarrass the administration. It’s Trump’s fault that he hasn’t smoked out these activists and fired them or put them in an office with nothing other than a crossword puzzle and a pencil. You can’t fire these dirtbags because of the ridiculous union “job protection” rules, but you can add civil service reform to the top of the list of issues Trump should have addressed on day one.

Come on, man. Trump has picked the worst people to work in the administration and the clowns he hasn’t picked were picked by the establishment Republican industry who are not on board with his agenda. What a dumpster fire.

Out of all the campaign promises he hasn’t for various reasons—some his fault, some beyond his control—managed to make good on, who woulda ever thunk Trump’s failure to “hire the best people” would have turned out to be the most consequential?

Trump better get a handle on this and start stomping some cockroaches toot fucking sweet, lest he suddenly find his house completely overrun and beyond salvage.

Trump backs down?

Or gets rolled, maybe?

‘At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border. If not, Deportations start!’ Trump said in a tweet on Saturday afternoon.

Enforcement raids had been scheduled to begin at dawn on Sunday in at least 10 major cities, drawing furious protests from local Democrat officials who vowed to fight the deportations. 

Caveats: one, it’s a UK libmedia outlet gleefully reporting this, and so should be taken with a grain of salt. Two: yes, I know about Vox Day’s “wait two days” rule regarding all news of this sort regarding the Prez, and we’ve seen that rule hold up plenty of times. Those things admitted, though, I tend towards Bill’s view on this one:

Here’s what’s going to happen in the real world. The Democrats will get their two week delay, which the mayors of the purported target cities will use to do everything in their power to protect their illegals. At the end of the two weeks, some sort of half-assed “solution” involving ICE being allowed to take a look at, oh, convicted illegal alien murderers or somesuch, will be hammered out. There will be a couple more empty promises about improvements to “border security.”

Trump will hail this as a mighty victory.

But nothing will change.

Here’s what you have to understand: The Democrats will never yield on fostering illegal immigration. It is the single blueprint they have for conquering America, and, given how well it has worked for them so far, they have no reason to give one single inch.

Worse, they will be aided by the “sell them the ropes with which to hang us” crowd at the GOPe and in the grease pits of the Koch brothers and the Chamber of Commerce.

This was all sound and fury, and it signifies absolutely nothing.

And I am sick and tired of hearing excuses for it.

I wish I could find a way to argue with that, but I have to admit I can’t. There’s no downside for Trump in vigorously enforcing immigration law by tracking down and deporting illegal aliens in YUGE numbers, and plenty of upside, starting with the fact that if there’s any one single promise he got elected on, it was this right here. Yes, the shitlibs will scream. Who the fuck cares? They’re screaming anyway, about anything and everything.

No, all backing down like this is going to do is weaken Trump supporters’ faith in him, dashing their already threadbare hope that the PTB can ever be successfully resisted by any but violent means. And so the day the shooting starts draws another small step closer, which is a day no sane person wants to see the dawn of.

Inclined as I usually am to give him the benefit of the doubt, I just can’t do it here. This is a bad, bad move by Trump, an own-goal for no apparent benefit. He’s foolishly putting trust in the Democrat-Socialists which they in no way deserve, and you should NEVER do that. He’ll wind up getting burned for it, and he’ll have it coming, too.

Update! A likely explanation.

It’s possible that ICE requested the delay after so many cities and states promised not to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement. Trump made note of that in his remarks:

Chicago Sun-Times:

”Some cities are going to fight it,” Trump said. “If you notice, they are generally high-crime cities. If you look at Chicago, they are fighting it and if you look at the other cities that are fighting it, many of those cities are high-crime cities and they are sanctuary cities.”

A majority of Democrats won’t agree to any reforms that include deporting illegal aliens — even if they have been lawfully told to leave. Expect the deportations to begin shortly.

Could this be another example of the “wait two days” rule in action? Time will tell, I guess.

Demographics is NOT destiny?

It’s never wise to contradict Steyn, in my opinion. But this guy makes an encouraging case.

A special election is scheduled for September 10 in North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District to replace former incumbent Walter Jones, the long-serving Republican who died earlier this year. The district is solidly Republican. Jones earned twice as many votes as his Democratic challenger in nearly every election since he first took office in 1995.

But the district is interesting for another reason, one that every Republican strategist in America should study. It is one of 47 congressional districts in the United States where, in the 2018 midterm elections, a majority of nonwhite voters were projected to vote Republican.

The following map, prepared by elections analyst Geoffrey Skelly at FiveThirtyEight, shows the congressional districts (red) where, if no one but nonwhite people voted, Republican candidates would still be likely to win.

It’s hard to overstate the significance of these 47 congressional districts. They belie the smug certainty on the part of Democratic politicians and strategists across the United States who equate the demographic transformation of America with an inevitable and unbreakable Democratic majority.

Take mass nonwhite immigration, higher birth rates for nonwhites, mix in identity politics and leftist, race-centric indoctrination against “white privilege,” and voila, America becomes a one-party state.

Or does it?

Interesting proposition for sure. I can neither agree nor disagree, honestly; Steyn’s old “demography is destiny” line is aimed more specifically at the disastrous mass influx of unassimilable Muslims into a Western culture they despise anyway, as is his related truism that “the future belongs to those who show up for it.”

But might it be possible, at least, that the Democrat-Socialist hail-Mary campaign to replace the American electorate with Mexican and Central American illegals might turn out to be futile? Has Trump shifted all the normal paradigms so significantly that this hoary old assumption, like so many others, also no longer holds?

Do as they say, not as they do

Not in MY backyard.

Talk about great news for blue America. The left tells us that all immigration is good. More immigration is better. There is no distinction between legal and illegal varieties of immigration. If you disagree with any of this, you’re a white nationalist. That’s what they’ve said almost every day for the last two years.

And now, completely out of the blue, comes the man they despise most in the world, Donald J. Trump, offering them what they want more than anything: more immigrants, immediately, delivered right to their door at federal expense. It must have been like Christmas morning.

But that’s not how they responded. The left wasn’t happy about Trump’s offer. They were shocked and enraged. You know what this is, they said? It’s dumping. The headline on Mother Jones read, “Donald Trump Wanted to Dump Asylum Seekers on Streets of Democratic Cities.” In the view of The Daily Beast’s Harry Siegel, “The White House wanted to dump refugees in sanctuary cities.” He called that idea “nasty.” At the same time, almost simultaneously, both CNN and MSNBC ran headlines accusing the White House of wanting to “dump” migrants into cities.

What’s the message here? Immigrants are trash? If you wanted to defile someone’s pristine city, you’d “dump” immigrants on it? Hmm. That sounds a little … searching for the word here … racist — a lot racist, actually. But Nancy Pelosi agrees with it. She immediately issued a statement: “The extent of this administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated. Using human beings — including little children — as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable.”

But that doesn’t really make sense. How can the presence of immigrants “perpetuate fear?” San Francisco is a sanctuary city. It subverted federal law in the hope more illegal immigrants would come. Now they may be coming, and San Francisco is upset.

Well, say the news anchors, Trump’s plan is illegal. There’s a process. Really? Did the people of Lewiston, Maine, or Hazleton, Pennsylvania — and countless other places across the country — take part in a process when massive groups of refugees were moved to their cities? But when you try to do that to the city where Pelosi lives, it’s supposedly “illegal.” This is getting confusing.

Let’s make it easier. Here’s a list of neighborhoods that could use some immediate refugee resettlement. These are affluent places. They are politically liberal. As a matter of policy and conviction, they love illegal immigrants; they just don’t really have any yet. Let’s change that. 

OHHH, let’s. This was one of Trump’s very best ideas, although admittedly it’s also probably the one with the least likelihood of his ever being allowed to actually do it. In hindsight, I’d bet Trump knows that too, and only brought it up at all to call attention to the staggering, balls-out chutzpahcrisy of the Democrat-Socialist “diversity” pimps. Once again, he called them out and exposed them for the brazen frauds they are—fobbing PC disaster off on the hated Normals that they’d never for one second tolerate in their own walled, gated, and guarded neighborhoods.

He not only called the pious shitlibs on their “sanctuary city” bullshit; he rubbed their noses in it, smeared them all over with it, and made complete fools out of them. No, he didn’t get it done, more’s the pity. But that wasn’t gonna happen anyway, and he still managed to score big with it nonetheless. Maybe the man really IS playing 4D chess here, huh?

Accidental honesty

Kamala Harris gives the game away.

President Trump tweeted recently that ICE will soon begin ramping up deportations of illegal aliens, and obviously that’s highly troubling to liberal Democrats like Kamala Harris:


Does Harris realize what she did there?

Doubtful, highly doubtful; she’s too damned stupid to, especially seeing as how she went blithely on from there to double down on dumbass. But since we all already know that her party insists on unrestrained illegal immigration for the purpose of replacing Real Americans, whose votes they can no longer get, with welfare-dependent hordes of illegal aliens who despise America as much as she and her cohorts do, Harris just have a sterling demonstration of the Opposite Rule: whatever the Democrat-Socialists are hysterically denouncing others for doing, that’s what THEY’RE doing themselves.

Kinsley gaffe (N): 1. (US politics) A mistake whereby a politician inadvertently says something truthful which they had not meant to reveal.

Oooooops.

Hit ’em high, hit ’em low, hit ’em hard

LOL get fucked.

Poor people have a right to migrate to the United States, and migrants should not be stopped by force, according to a letter from Mexico’s president to U.S. President Donald Trump.

President López Obrador’s May 30 letter, provided by the Wall Street Journal, claimed a migrant’s “right for justice,” saying:

President Trump. Social problems are not resolved by taxes or coercive measures. How do you transform the country of fraternity for the world’s migrants into a ghetto, a closed space, where migrants are stigmatized, mistreated, persecuted, expelled and the right for justice is canceled to those who tirelessly seek to live free of misery?

The letter also suggested that poor Mexicans have a right to migrate into the United States: “It is worth remembering that, within a short period of time, Mexicans will not need to migrate into the United States and that migration will become optional, not compulsory.”

Alternatively, if we marched down to your shithole country in force, kicked your Beaner asses up between your shoulderblades, and took over management of the dump lock, stock, and barrel a la 1847-8, THAT would pretty much settle the question entirely, wouldn’t it now? On the other hand, the problem with Mexico is that it’s full of Mexicans, as ZMan so sagely said. And who wants to tackle the job of trying to govern the demonstrably ungovernable?

Obrador’s letter did not formally reject or accept Trump’s demand that Mexico block the huge Central American migration into the United States, nor did it directly denounce Trump’s threat to impose rising tariffs on Mexico.

Instead, it repeatedly claimed poor people have a right to move into the United States.

Fine and dandy, bub. We’ll see you that one, and raise you OUR right to start summarily gunning the illegal hordes down exactly one micromillisecond after the very next wetback foot sets itself on the sacred soil of Texas, may almighty God forever preserve and protect it. Like Bill says: “You have your ways, and we have our ways.” So go ahead and bluster away to your heart’s content about what you want and expect from us. As the old jet-jock slogan has it: kick the tires, light the fires, first one up’s the winner.

Sadly, I don’t expect any of that to transpire, and neither should you. But seriously, though: have we really been reduced to such a pathetically ineffectual state that runty pipsqueaks with more balls than brains like this toad can openly defy and mock us with total impunity? This is where we’re at now?

REALLY?!?

Never mind, don’t answer that one. On grounds that it may infuriate me.

London crawling

Into shithole status.

“London is a shithole.”

My words to Sky News in January of 2018, when host Gamal Fahnbulleh attempted to shame me on national television for supporting President Donald Trump in his alleged statement about “shithole countries.”

Well, I didn’t actually say “London is a shithole,” I said “London’s turning into a shithole under Sadiq Khan.”

Actor John Cleese – best known for Monty Python and Fawtly Towers – appears to agree with me.

Yeah, he never said “shithole,” but I reckon he meant it.

He tweeted on Thursday: “Some years ago I opined that London was not really an English city any more. Since then, virtually all my friends from abroad have confirmed my observation. So there must be some truth in it… I note also that London was the UK city that voted most strongly to remain in the EU.”

So let us take their points at face value: Cleese and Khan are arguing about London’s culture. It doesn’t take decades of research to recognize what has taken place there due to multiculturalism.

Firstly, crime is at an all time high in London. Gun crime, knife crime, robbery, violent crime in general, rape, burglary, you name it. Is this is a symptom of culture? Certainly. Is it a symptom of imported cultures? Also yes. These increases aren’t predominantly occurring in Greenwich, or Richmond, or Mayfair. They’re happening in what Khan would call London’s most “diverse” neighborhoods (which actually aren’t “diverse” at all – they’re dominated by one or two racial, ethnic, or religious groups).

Nor are the travails of London somehow inculcated within genetic or racial distinctions. Much as Islam’s culture emanates from the Quran and the hadiths, most of London’s problems hail from the cultures people are encouraged by state sponsored multiculturalism to bring with them to Britain.

This isn’t to say London has a plethora of “no go zones” (also the name of my first book, since you’re in a ‘Buy Raheem’ mood). But it is somewhere without one distinct identity anymore, and that is a great shame.

Once identifiable via the British flag, our double-decker red buses, our Black Cabs, our red phone boxes, and our bowler-hatted, bumbershoot carriers, London is now a little of bit of everything and a whole lot of nothing.

Londonistan was lost long ago, and is far too gone now to ever be brought back to anything like its former glory. Traditional Englishters in “Greenwich, or Richmond, or Mayfair” better damned well hope they can find a way to forestall such for themselves, lest they wake up to find London’s self-inflicted, slow-motion suicide occurring in their own environs. Kassam’s closer is priceless:

Maybe some people prefer it that way. An “ever evolving metropolis” that stands absent foundation and blows with the wind.

Okay. If that’s what you want just say so. But don’t blame Cleese and others for pointing out the nation’s capital is unrecognizable from 20 or 30 years ago. Just admit you like shitholes. That’s all.

Heh. Well, they DO, actually. I mean, they must; they seem to create them wherever they go, in every urban metropolis all over the world.

Go home

Rod Dreher says LOL get fucked, baby-killing carpetbaggers.

I’m so sorry. Really, just very sorry. Here entitled Yankees like the NYT’s Ginia Bellafante thought the American South existed to give Millennial Brooklynites a place to reproduce Park Slope, but more affordably, and now we’ve gone and ruined it for them with our deplorable social and religious views.

Okay, so right away you guys KNOW I ain’t gonna like tis bint’s twaddle much. Methinks an old-fashioned fisking might be in order here. Emphasis mine throughout.

“The New South’’ was a term conceived in the aftermath of the Civil War to suggest a set of aspirations of some southern elites who hoped to rebuild a backward and devastated place into a world better aligned with Northern urban values.

Oh, so THAT’S what it was, eh? Here I’d thought all these years it was something more comprehensible and less permanently damaging, like a plague of locusts or something. Too Biblical a reference to pass muster, probably.

Over the many decades, it has acquired various layers of nuance, but today it tends to call to mind a string of cities from Charlotte, N.C., to Austin, Tex., that have essentially been Brooklynized by way of a progressive social culture and a tweaked fidelity to some of the South’s more marketable traditions.

Uh huh. And eventually those cities will find they’ve been “Detroitized,” “Chicagoized,” and/or “San Franciscoized,” its residents stepping around humongous piles of human shit in the streets, dodging stray bullets on their way back to the exhorbitantly-priced 600-square-foot apartment they flatter outrageously by calling “home.”

Actually, you dope, Charlotte has been a very liberal city for as long as I’ve been alive—at least. Any recent Progressivist “Brooklynizing” was superfluous and unnecessary here. I can’t really speak for Austin, but I suspect it’s a similar story there. Not that it matters; as with any and every young Progressivist with absolutely no knowledge of or regard for the history of the places they choose to infest in their migratory meanderings, she just can’t help but pat herself on the back for the world of good she’s done for us inbred cretins, the improvements she’s so magnanimously making in our lives and surroundings. She seems completely unaware that these backwaters even existed before she flounced on in and plopped her sorry ass down in our midst.

How will these new abortion laws affect the redistribution of talent to places whose economies prosper from that talent? Under the current conditions, I wondered if women like Tess and her friends, many of whom moved from New York or Los Angeles, would have chosen to relocate to the Deep South. I asked some of them, and they told me that they were not sure.

One, Allison Gourlay, arrived in New Orleans a few years ago from a studio in Greenwich Village she could barely afford. At first she had a hard time finding work and questioned her decision.

“I was talking to a friend one day when I wasn’t sure and she said, ‘Stay, this place is about to blow up. It’s on the cusp of something big, can’t you feel it?’ This is cheesy, but I got goose bumps. New Orleans is really a place to establish work-life balance but I’m getting ready to start a family and it scares me,” she said.

Back to Dreher to handle that one:

She’s getting ready to start a family, but the possibility that the Louisiana legislature might make it harder for her to exterminate her unborn child makes her think about abandoning the city where things are otherwise pretty great for her?

Why not? Makes as much sense as any of the other nonsensical crap they spew. Myself, I encourage her to abandon, abandon away. Don’t waste a moment, honey, you might be too late. Better still, just don’t come down South in the first place. We’re all racist, homophobic, misogynist Neanderthals ’round here, you know: semi-retarded, Christian zealots to the marrow, implacably opposed to a Woman’s Right To Choose (to murder her baby for convenience’s sake), utterly hostile to Women’s Health Care (ie, unrestricted abortion) too. Every cliche you ever heard about us God-bothering knuckedraggers is one hundred percent true, I assure you. Be sure to tell all your hipster-douchebag friends, ‘kay?

“When you meet all these young people moving here who are so passionate and intelligent and changing the rules and making the city what it is, it is so inspiring. But it really worries me that it could no longer be that place.”

Yeah, how deeply awful it would be if our Southern cities were somehow transformed back into the peaceful, affordable, pleasant places they were before you goddamned urban-liberal transplants moved in and got busy turning them into the same kind of blighted Gomorrhian nightmare you left in ruins behind you.

“Making the city what it is”? It never once occurred to you that the city was already something long before you ever thought of moving there, and that maybe its long-time inhabitants liked it the way it was and had no wish to see their rules changed or their communities “Brooklynized,” did it? No, in your staggering arrogance, you and your fellow egotists arrive not to respectfully appreciate or assimilate but to wreck and radically alter, with neither permission nor invitation. Back once more to Dreher for the closing bitchslap:

I concede that it’s interesting to talk to progressive Northerners who moved South, thinking that the Grand March of Progress would inevitably make the benighted (but cheap) metropolises of Dixie into non-deplorable locales — but who are learning that they, in fact, live in the South.

What chaps my butt about the piece is the assumption by the author (and those she writes about) that the South ought to assimilate to the dominant progressive culture. The message of this piece is, If you Christianist troglodytes don’t let us progressives have our abortions, we’re not going to move there and contribute to your economies. 

I have an idea! All y’all could pack up your progressive colonialism ethic and go the hell back home.

I have friends who are pro-choice Southern liberals. I believe they’re wrong about that, but this is their home, and I’ve got no problem with them speaking their minds, and advocating for the kinds of laws they would like to see. But you’d better believe I have a big problem with these people who come down to take what’s good out of the South, but the moment Southerners — who are in general more socially conservative — express through their democratically elected legislators opinions that run counter to the sensibilities of Williamsburg, these people are thinking of leaving? Go. Just, go. 

DAMNED skippy. Go indeed; try y’all’s hand at fixing the nearly-uninhabitable rathole you fled, instead of colonizing us, whydon’tcha. Don’t let the door etc, y’heah?

SICK!

Looks like when Trump OUTRAGED!™ the goofball Left by saying Mexico wasn’t sending their “best and brightest” across our ersatz Southern “border,” he just might’ve been onto something.

An illegal alien convicted of raping a dog to death was released by the sanctuary state of Oregon after being sentenced to just 60 days in prison.

As Breitbart News reported, illegal alien Fidel Lopez, 52-years-old, was convicted last month and sentenced to 60 days in prison after raping his girlfriend’s small Lhasa Apso which led to the dog’s death. The judge in the case said he would have given the illegal alien more prison time but that 60 days is the maximum sentence allowed in Oregon.

Because of course it is.

Following his sentence, Lopez was immediately released because he had already served 60 days while waiting to stand trial. Despite his illegal alien status, Multnomah County, Oregon officials released Lopez back into the community.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency had requested that the illegal alien be turned over to them for deportation should he be released from prison. The sanctuary state officials ignored the ICE request and released the illegal alien into the public.

This subhuman fiend is now back in ICE custody, according to the article, and awaiting deportation. We’ll see how things shake out, I guess. But in any event, Portland will deserve whatever it gets from this guy. I’m kinda thinking if he gets hold of some barren Sanctuary Shitlib’s pwecious little child-substitute half-a-dog next time for an encore performance, at least that one particular weepy moron might begin to rethink a few things—if far too late to do her sweet little BooBoo any good. But I dunno, maybe not.

Of course, the Left’s feeble defense here will be that this is but one extreme case out of many millions. But that entirely misses the point, to wit: EVEN ONE IS TOO GODDAMNED MANY. This depraved fuck shouldn’t be here in the first place; he has no right whatsoever to be here, and should have been sent back long ago, with strict shoot-on-sight orders issued to the Border Patrol should he ever be caught attempting another criminal crossing. The nauseating freak of right ought to be Mexico’s problem, not ours. If Portlandia twits want to make him theirs, well, that’s on them, I guess. May they have joy of their foolish choice.

Southern by the grace of God

Interesting reflection on Southern identity, from Z.

In reality, those types we get from popular culture are caricatures of old realities, more than anything based in present reality. In the major population centers in the modern South, you will be hard pressed to find the snaggle-toothed redneck or the courtly southern gentleman. Instead, it is mostly middle-class suburban people living better than most of the country. The quality of life in the modern South is much higher than most of the country, which is why so many are moving there.

Which, in turn, is why the quality of life here won’t be staying higher for long, as ever more damn-Yankee carpetbaggers flee the nest they’ve fouled to come here and foul mine, via the selfsame bonehead liberalism that ruined theirs.

All that said, the South is going to be on the cutting edge of identity politics, even if it struggles to forge a new identity. Georgia is 55% white, with a large black population spoiling for a chance to hold the whip hand over whites. Florida is 56% white with a swelling population of Caribbeans. Texas is already minority white and the flood of migrants is making it more so. It is in the South that white identity, regional identity and identity politics will be the defining issues in the very near future.

How this breaks out is hard to know. There are people with ideas about it, like the folks at Identity Dixie, with whom I did an interview recently. They are in many ways the New South, in that they are college educated, middle-class guys. As I like to put it, the new Southern man has a pickup truck, but it cost sixty grand, has leather seats and the bed has only ever seen his kid’s toys and his golf clubs. If it has a bumper sticker on it on, it is for parking at his office building or maybe his golf club.

It is hard to know where this goes. It is in the South where the homogenization and financialization of America is most obvious. Vast developments of identical houses, with Potemkin “town centers” populated by strangers from all over the earth, is just as much a part of the New South as anything else. If someone had moved away from the Charlotte area thirty years ago and returned for the first time today, they would be in a foreign country. Even NASCAR is different from the recent past.

He said a mouthful there. Actually, if someone had moved away from Charlotte even ten years ago he’d find himself bewildered. My brother says all the time that he often feels as if he’d gone to bed one night and then woke up the next morning to find himself on another planet. The entire landscape has changed, both physically and in terms of those who inhabit it.

For my money, Southern identity is being washed away in favor of a flavorless, dull homogeneity. In fact, it’s all but gone already. It’s pretty rare now to hear a good ol’ hayseed accent around here, unless you’re out in the remoter areas talking to what we used to call country-folk—like, say, Kannapolis, where my mom’s people hail from. Most now speak in a flat, generic dialect that offers no hint of the speaker’s regional roots. In my callow youth, that lazy-mouthed redneck drawl used to annoy me sometimes. Now, I find myself missing it.

Funny thing is, when I first moved to NYC back in the 90s people used to ask me all the time what part of England I was from. Then, I’d come home for a weekend to have folks upbraid me for talking like a Yankee. An indication of how bizarre and indecipherable my own patois is, maybe. My daughter speaks in a very crisp, clearly-enunciated way, with no trace of any kind of accent I can discern, most certainly not a Southern one. Her mom is from rural Ohio, and the young ‘un doesn’t really talk like her either. It’s…interesting, I reckon.

As goes the dialect, so goes the region. For better or worse, Southern culture is on the skids, its once-distinct identity eroded into boring sameness. Yes, the only true constant is change, which doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. Sadly, as that bright Southern color gets sandblasted off, the culture subsumed into an increasingly-amorphous American blob, something precious is being lost forever. But hey, we’ll always have our memories, right?

State religion

Hey, anybody remember that whole “establishment of religion” thing, formerly one of the most fearsome of the Left’s many bugaboos? “No prayer in schools,” a “wall of separation between church and state” that simply HAD to be iron-clad and inviolable?

Nah, me neither.

A religious liberty advocacy group is threatening to slap a Seattle-area school district with a lawsuit claiming the district has urged teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic during the holy month of Ramadan and give them preferential treatment, including skipping tests.

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) claims the Dieringer School District is officially endorsing Islam and is following a script by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that urges schools to make special accommodations for Muslim students and to wish them “Ramadan Mubarak,” which means “Happy Ramadan,” or “Ramadan Kareem,” which means “Have a generous Ramadan.”

The CAIR guidelines also instruct teachers to monitor Muslim students fasting and suggests teachers not schedule any tests on the Islamic holidays of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha.

“By urging teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic, the district is running roughshod over the First Amendment’s mandate of government neutrality toward religion,” said Daniel Piedra, FCDF’s executive director. “A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.”

The defense fund claims Dieringer Superintendent Judy Martinson blindly followed the recommendations of CAIR and “enacted the letter as official district policy.” The defense fund sent Martinson a letter stating their complaints after a teacher and parent complained about the new procedure.

Did she, or didn’t she? Martinson denies it, flatly saying “The Dieringer School District has not and would not violate the First Amendment by endorsing any religious observations.” Then again:

Fox News also has obtained a March 14 email from Martinson’s official account to district officials including school principals, forwarding a CAIR letter with suggested guidelines for schools.

As you would expect, the terrorist front group’s leader pounced on the opportunity to whine about “Islamophobia” with his usual alacrity.

Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for CAIR, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, told Fox News the pushback from FCDF was a “sign of the growing Islamophobia in our nation that showing respect for and accommodating the religious traditions of Muslim students could result in punitive legal action.”

Yeah, whatever, go fuck yourself. Here’s another step down the same dark road:

A Philadelphia city commission said Monday it’s investigating an event last month at which Muslim children were captured on video speaking in Arabic about beheadings and the liberation of Jerusalem’s most sensitive holy site.

The Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations launched a probe into the April 17 gathering at the Muslim American Society’s Philadelphia chapter. A video uploaded to the chapter’s Facebook page shows children moving to a revolutionary anthem often used by Islamist groups, and two young girls reading from a prepared text. One says, “We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

The Muslim American Society took the video down — calling the video “disturbing” and condemning the words used in it — and said a school that rented space in the building was responsible for the program. It said the person in charge of the event had been dismissed.

The society also called the school, which it did not name, a “separate entity.” But old Facebook posts that have since been taken down show that a school called MAS Leaders Academy operates at the Muslim American Society’s Philadelphia location. Muslim American Society officials did not return phone calls and email messages seeking comment Monday on the relationship between the Philadelphia chapter and the school.

Yeah, I just bet they didn’t at that. No one needs to waste any time wondering why the jihadi infiltrators might have picked Philly and Seattle—two overwhelmingly liberal-majority cities—for the latest examples of this gradual, drip-drip-drip insinuation into the very fabric of American life.

Paying the Danegeld

It’s lights out for Once-Great Britain.

Subway removes ham and bacon from nearly 200 stores and offers halal meat only after ‘strong demand’ from Muslims
Fast food giant Subway has removed ham and bacon from almost 200 outlets, and switched to halal meat alternatives in an attempt to please its Muslim customers.

It has confirmed turkey ham and turkey rashers will be used instead in 185 of its stores, where all the meat will now be prepared according to halal rules.

The chain, which has around 1,500 outlets across the UK, explained its decision by saying it had to balance animal welfare concerns with ‘the views of religious communities’.

Why don’t you pathetic cowards just tell it like it is: it’s just the one “religious community” you’re appeasing here.

A Subway spokeswoman told MailOnline all halal meat served in the participating branches is from animals who were stunned prior to slaughter.

She said: ‘The growing popularity of the Subway chain with the diverse multicultural population across the UK and Ireland means we have to balance the values of many religious communities with the overall aim of improving the health and welfare standards of animals.

‘We put a programme into place in 2007 to ensure that the population demographic is taken into account when new store openings are considered in order that we meet consumer demand in each location.’

Translation: “Now that Old Blighty has immivasioned itself into just another Muslim-majority shitrapy, we must adjust our menus in accordance with the requirements of sharia law.”

Welcome to your new nation, Englishters. May you have joy of your choices. And may the US wake the fuck up and get off your dark path before it’s too late for us, too.

Oh, she’s patriotic all right

She’s just in the wrong country, that’s all. Authentic American hero Kyle Lamb is just the guy to set her despicable ass straight.

Earlier this week, a 2017 tweet from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) surfaced in which she attacked the men who helped defend from starvation and civil war the country she abandoned in the early 1990s. In her tweet, Omar blasted “American forces” for killing “thousands of Somalis” during the Battle of Mogadishu in October 1993. “#NotTodaySatan,” Omar wrote.

I take special exception to Omar’s disgusting comments because I served in the Battle of Mogadishu, which was later portrayed in the movie “Black Hawk Down.” If you aren’t familiar with the real story behind “Black Hawk Down,” let me set the scene for you.

The Habar Gidir clan, one of the more powerful clans around Mogadishu, was led by the notorious warlord Mohammed Farah Aidid, who made the distribution of international aid to those who needed it nearly impossible. Instead of equitably spreading food and medical supplies, Aidid and his henchmen spread terror and death.

Task Force Ranger was the 1993 military effort ordered by President Bill Clinton to capture Aidid and his lieutenants so the U.N. could deliver food and medical aid without fear of being attacked or killed by Aidid’s forces. The American soldiers Omar attacked in her tweet — the men of Task Force Ranger –weren’t sent to Somalia for fame or fortune. They weren’t there because of a deep desire to visit the God-forsaken nation of Somalia. They were deployed to support peacekeepers who were desperate to rescue the country from starvation and the ravages of civil war. To do that, they had to capture the men responsible for it.

By the time Task Force Ranger had been launched, Aidid’s network of drug-addled, Khat-dealing gun runners had taken over Mogadishu and were doing everything they could to oppress any and all rival clans, including that of Omar, the Majeerteen. In other words, we were sent halfway across the world to help protect people just like Omar and her family. Nineteen incredible men gave their lives defending her country while serving ours. They deserve to be lauded for their service, not attacked for it.

I am thankful Omar and her family and countless others were able to escape to neighboring Kenya while we fought to protect those left behind, but I simply cannot comprehend her attitude towards those of us who fought to protect her country and countrymen from warlords who plunged Somalia only further into violence and starvation. I am glad that Omar can now enjoy the very freedoms we fought to protect, like the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion affirmed in the U.S. Constitution, but I don’t understand why she uses those freedoms to slur the men and women of the U.S. military who made her security and liberty a reality.

I’m neither thankful nor glad for Omar’s deliverance from Somali hell into the welcoming arms of a nation whose assistance and embrace she is unworthy of. She is a disgusting ingrate, not worth one drop of the priceless American blood shed on her and her fellow primordial knuckledraggers’ behalf that awful day. More and possibly worse from the NYPost:

The controversial Minnesota lawmaker claimed that “thousands” died in the Battle of Mogadishu — though most reputable sources put the contested body count much lower, according a report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

#NotTodaySatan,” Omar wrote in response to a Twitter user’s lament that 19 US service members were killed and 73 injured in the battle.

Monica Showalter questions her “patriotism”:

Seriously, she called them ‘Satan’? And she said it a lot more recently than she did with her 2012 ‘Israel has hypnotized the world’ tweet. What amazing ingratitude. She called the people who were trying to deliver aid to her starving clan, the Mateerveen of the Somali north, ‘Satan’ and fliply said ‘Not today, Satan’ on the question of whether there should be appreciation for the Americans who died for her own people. Her country was a hellhole and the Marines came in five years after she left it. Her family were among the people who were so badly off as victims of Somalia’s khat-chewing warlords that they had fled the country — for a four-year stint in a Kenyan refugee camp as a better alternative to life in Somalia — until they hit the jackpot as refugees and came to America. That kind of ingratitude is some strange stuff.

It points to a reflexive anti-Americanism that’s visible in pretty much every statement she makes. And her resentment was there from the beginning – she hated America from the moment she landed here, as she told the New York Times, calling it a land of ‘hypocrisy.’ She “concluded that it was not the golden land that she had heard about,” the Times gently intoned. 

Gee, so sorry about all that, dear. No, really. The blood-boiling closer is Lamb’s.

The simple truth is that Omar enjoys the fruits of American combat deaths, yet she can’t even bring herself to acknowledge the ultimate sacrifice that was made on her behalf, either as a Somali or an American. Her clan didn’t stand a chance against Aidid and Habar Gidirs, so I don’t blame her for leaving. But I do blame her for attacking those of us who had zero personal interest or investment in her nation for doing our jobs on behalf of our country. And I blame her for smearing American servicemen because we answered the call of our nation to address the violent barbarism of hers.

Well said, SMaj. Omar is here in the first place because of some at best extremely suspicious—most likely illegal—maneuvering and manipulation. In light of her obvious dissatisfaction, she should be sent straight the fuck back to where she came from without delay, at least until those questionable circumstances are investigated thoroughly. There just is no demand whatsoever here for yet another disgruntled, unassimilable Muslim “refugee” whose loathing and contempt for America slops forth from every pore like sweat in a blazing desert.

The excretion Omar has no right to be here. She isn’t needed here. She doesn’t like it here. She has nothing of value to offer this country; her contemptuous, entitled attitude confirms that even if she did, she’s way more taker than giver. She isn’t a loyal, patriotic American citizen. She never will be. She’s a fucking parasite.

Send. Her. Back.

SSSHHH! Don’t tell Moran or Cavuto

More “despicable speculation” and “conspiracy-mongering.”

Countless churches throughout Western Europe are being vandalized, defecated on, and torched.

In France, two churches are desecrated every day on average. According to PI-News, a German news site, 1,063 attacks on Christian churches or symbols (crucifixes, icons, statues) were registered in France in 2018. This represents a 17 percent increase compared to the previous year (2017), when 878 attacks were registered — meaning that such attacks are only going from bad to worse.

*closes eyes, sticks fingers in ears* TRALALALALALAICAN’THEEAAAARRRRYOOOOUUUU

Similar reports are coming out of Germany. Four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. “In this country,” PI-News explained, “there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches… and recently also on cemeteries.”

Who is primarily behind these ongoing and increasing attacks on churches in Europe? The same German report offers a hint: “Crosses are broken, altars smashed, Bibles set on fire, baptismal fonts overturned, and the church doors smeared with Islamic expressions like ‘Allahu Akbar.’”

GODDAMMIT STOP WITH THE FUCKING RACIST SPECULATION YOU BIGOTED BASTARDS

In 2016, following the arrival in Germany of another million mostly Muslim migrants, a local newspaper reported that in the town of Dülmen, “‘not a day goes by’ without attacks on religious statues in the town of less than 50,000 people, and the immediate surrounding area.”

In France it also seems that where the number of Muslim migrants increases, so do attacks on churches. A January 2017 study revealed that, “Islamist extremist attacks on Christians” in France rose by 38 percent, going from 273 attacks in 2015 to 376 in 2016; the majority occurred during Christmas season and “many of the attacks took place in churches and other places of worship.”

I’m SURE all that’s just a coincidence. Can we please talk about something else now? Guess not, since Ace has mentioned another one:

The Saint Denis cathedral, in which are interred the bones of Charles Martel, was also vandalized in March.

For the handful of you who might not be aware of who that was, this sums it up fairly well:

By the eighteenth century, historians such as Edward Gibbon had begun to portray the Frankish leader as the saviour of Christian Europe from a full-scale Islamic invasion, wondering whether without Charles’ victory, “Perhaps the interpretation of the Koran would now be taught in the schools of Oxford”.

Hm. Might provide a little insight into possible Muslim motivation for vandalizing the church Martel rests in, might it not? Which in turn would lend weight to all this unconscionable, silly, stupid-stupid-stupid “speculation,” perhaps.

Since I thought I remembered a post at Badass Of The Week on Martel I poked around in their archives unsuccessfully for one, although it did remind me of this CF post on their Jan Sobieski article. Then I got myself seriously sidetracked, which is what tends to happen when you visit that incredibly entertaining site. So I’ll rather abruptly close this piece out and get on with the digression. Not only did I run across scads of good stuff over there I that want to post on here, I was also reminded that BOTW isn’t in Ye Olde Blogrolle—a simply inexcusable oversight which I will immediately rectify.

Sudden-onset NIMBY-ism

Tables: turned. Tune: changed.

Presidential candidate and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker acknowledged that there is a problem at the southern border during a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday afternoon.

“We do have a problem at the southern border,” Booker began, according to The Hill. “Democrats should not deny that we [do]. Nations should have borders, borders should be respected.”

I’m sorry, that was so unexpected a turnabout I’m gonna have to post it again:

Presidential candidate and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker acknowledged that there is a problem at the southern border during a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday afternoon.

“We do have a problem at the southern border,” Booker began, according to The Hill. “Democrats should not deny that we [do]. Nations should have borders, borders should be respected.”

Ahh, but the clumsy about-facing doesn’t stop there.

WASHINGTON — Andrew Yang, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said there is a “migrant crisis” on the U.S.-Mexico border that needs to be addressed.

In February, President Trump declared a national emergency as a way to construct additional physical barriers on the southern border. Democrats overwhelmingly voted to block Trump’s border declaration. Some Republicans joined the Democrats in voting for legislation that would reverse the national emergency. Trump ultimately vetoed the bill.

Yang has said he supports a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants but his immigration reform plan would “reflect the fact that these individuals tried to circumvent our legal immigration system.” During a CNN town hall on Sunday evening, Yang was asked to elaborate on his statement.

Wow. I mean, just…WOW. But we aren’t done yet.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio threatened to sue the Trump administration if it sends illegal immigrants to New York City, a “sanctuary city.”

My, the Racist H888RRRR Bigotry sure is strong with these Democrat-Socialist crawly things, ain’t it?

“It’s illegal. It is just plain illegal. We will meet him in court. We will beat him in court,” de Blasio said, according to the New York Post.

No, it isn’t, and no, you won’t. Wanna know what IS illegal? Your precious “sanctuary city’s” declared intention to defy immigration law and thwart or interfere with federal authorities attempting to enforce it, that’s what. Why, all of a sudden it’s almost as if the whole “sanctuary city” dodge was never anything more than posturing and virtue-signaling by holier-than-thou Proggy assholes, ain’t it? But no, that just couldn’t be right.

Wretched refuse tossed back

Looks like those compassionate, loving libtards don’t want ’em either.

Pop icon Cher said Sunday that Los Angeles, California, “can’t take care of its own” residents, much less newly arrived illegal and legal immigrants.

Cher said she failed to understand how the city of Los Angeles in the sanctuary state of California could afford to admit and take care of any more immigrants when city officials have failed to care for homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans.

“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” Cher said.

Racist. Bigot. White genocidal H888RRRR doesn’t care about brown people. Hanson asks a few pertinent questions:

Some polls in the past have suggested that a third of Mexico’s population would immigrate to the United States if possible. The percentages of would-be immigrants from Central America are likely to be even higher. In theory, 50 million could cross the border in the next two decades, which poses the question: what are the theoretical limits on illegal immigration?

When would it cease? When 50 million or 60 million or maybe 80 million foreign nationals entered illegally, without meritocratic criteria or much diversity?

Illegal immigration and its effects on a community are incremental but steady. This past week, two miles from my home, an illegal alien fled the scene of an accident that he had caused, which killed a pregnant Mexican-American and critically injured her 11-year-old daughter. He is still at large. Within a 100-mile radius of central California, at least five citizens were killed by illegal alien gunmen in the last four months. When I go to town to drop off dry cleaning, I rarely hear English spoken. Almost all the stores in the shopping center (where I have gone for 50 years) have Spanish names. Few English signs are apparent or needed.

In my immediate rural environs, there is now the following: 1) an illegal dump of various junk, wrecked cars, and discarded household items; 2) a strange open-air vacant storage lot dotted with porta potties, trailers and assorted junk spread over five acres; 3) a bizarre sort of camp, in which lean-tos, shacks, and tents are hidden among an old persimmon orchard, where no one quite knows how many such structures are hidden inside the mysterious grove; 4) a permanent hanging gardens of Babylon-type of yard sale where a home’s trees and bushes are littered with hanging clothing and flotsam and jetsam, some of them rotting from the recent rains; 5) a former backyard that is now a small goat mart; 6) an unlicensed, ad hoc outdoor barber shop; 7) an unlicensed, ad hoc outdoor daycare center.

I’ll stop there, but the avenue where I have lived for 65 years in terms of the fundamental metrics of civilization—sanitation, single-family zoning, building codes, mosquito abatement, dog licensing and registration, and sanctions for illicit activity—has regressed a half-century or more.

Officials apparently assume that visiting these places can become a lose-lose-lose situation: the miscreant will not comply with citations, the bureaucratic costs of enforcement are not offset by collectable fines, and the touchy subject of illegal immigration may earn either unfavorable press coverage or censure from politically sensitive county and local officials. In other words, we are a world away from Nancy Pelosi’s gated Napa estate, or Dianne Feinstein’s $40 million hilltop Pacific Heights mansion but not from the results of their ideology.

That ain’t no accident; in fact, it’s the whole idea. They intend to replace you with a more compliant Democrat-Socialist electoral majority, from behind the comfort and security of their own personal Big Beautiful Walls, well-insulated from contact with the unsightly border-jumping hordes by the locked gates of their exclusive enclaves and the hired guards patrolling them with rifles they wish to take from us. Instead of Repeal And Replace, you might think of it as Replace And Repopulate. Diplomad knows the score:

Well, of course, it is not illegal to transport aliens, released by our absurd and destructive “catch and release” legal system, to places where they will be welcomed and well-cared for, i..e., sanctuary cities and states. I would note that the Obama administration did something similar; the Obamistas transported people from Somalia, the Middle East, Mexico, and Central America, and placed them in traditionally Republican rural, semi-rural, and suburban areas. I PERSONALLY witnessed this, and wrote about it in a piece posted July 3, 2014: at that time, the Border Patrol tried to “process” a few bus-loads of illegals and release them into the small Republican town of Murrieta, California, where I lived,

I was encouraged to see the citizens of small Murrieta, California, a town I know very well, rise up against the Border Patrol and its effort to dump several hundred “children” at its facility in Murrieta for “processing,” i.e., cutting free. In a near-repeat of the Bundy ranch stand-off, Murrieta residents blocked the USBP buses and made them turn back. Perhaps these buses could head for the White House or for the Kennedy compound in Martha’s Vineyard?

Mayor of Murrieta Alan Long, a decent man, said that his town suffers the consequences of a “failed federal policy.” I must disagree with the Honorable Mayor: Murrieta and America suffer the consequences of a deliberate federal and Democratic party policy aimed at changing the nature of our country forever.

Once again, the President has shown that everything about the prog agenda is a hoax, except for the desire to create havoc and open avenues to increased power for the progs. They care only about destroying what exists, and replacing it with something only the progs control. They certainly don’t care about the illegals as humans; they have revealed clearly they don’t want them around, but are perfectly fine with them spilling into Arizona and Texas towns. All that stuff about how wonderful all these illegals are, how they commit fewer crimes, work harder, etc., than the rest of us, form just more hoax talking points.

Meanwhile, whether his proposal was intended as a solid piece of trolling or something more serious, Trump is doubling down:


Heh. There are a couple more of these hilarious blasts here, along with a Tucker Carlson video on the shitlibs’ boundless, shameless hypocrisy.

After our Ruling Class Citizens Of The World speciously argued that a stupid little sonnet emblazoned on the Statue of Liberty overrules US immigration law, we should insist that they take these unjustly put-upon souls in in accordance with the beliefs they so self-righteously profess. Let the big-hearted, morally-superior Left gladly accept and succor these tired, these poor, these huddled masses yearning to breathe free into their sanctuary cities. Or let them shut their fat fucking yaps about them. It’s like this:

National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd claimed Sunday that it is “absolutely legal” for the federal government to transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities.

Judd went on to detail the “two layers” he saw at work in the proposed plan.

“If he’s doing it for humanitarian purposes, he should be praised,” Judd began. “These are cities that the city councils have consciously made a decision they’re going to accept the illegal aliens into their cities to protect them.”

But then Judd addressed the flip side, saying, “If he’s doing it for political reasons, this is brilliant. These people have to be released for one reason or another. And if we’re going to have to release them, why not show the sanctuary cities the same pressure that other cities are feeling.”

“From those two layers, this is a brilliant move,” Judd concluded.

My favorite part? This:

Following the public reaction to those reports — particularly the response from Democrats who suddenly appeared to oppose an influx of illegal immigrants into the cities they touted as welcoming to all — Trump has doubled down on the idea, saying that his administration is now seriously considering the option.

Do it, Mr President. Just do it.
