Build the damned wall NOW

Wow. Just…wow. Donald Trump Jr lead a group of outraged politicians and right-wing commentators after the Mexican illegal immigrant who admitted to shooting Kate Steinle in the back while she was walking with her father on a San Francisco pier was found not guilty of second-degree murder. ‘What a disgrace,’ the president’s oldest son tweeted […]

Drain it!

Getting rid of the Obama stay-behind saboteurs ought to be Job Fucking One. The country’s immigration enforcement officers launched a website Tuesday demanding that President Trump do more to clean up their agency, saying he has left the Obama team in place and it’s stymying his goal of enforcing laws on the books. U.S. Immigration and Customs […]

UNPOSSIBLE!

Hey, guys, can’t we please get back to talking about implementing some reasonable, common-sense gun confiscation, grabbing 350 million-plus guns out of the hands of people grimly, absolutely determined to hang onto them? I mean, at least that’s feasible, right? Not like this pie-in-the-sky, unworkable, utterly unpossible securing-the-borders nonsense. To the establishments of both parties […]

Razing Arizona

“I’m fixing a hole where the rain and a million people get in”-Paul McCartney, assistant librarian, Liverpool, Arizona Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy West, on boycotting Arizona: “If this [Arizona] was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they […]

First They Came For Hitler…

SEIG, HELL Town Crier: In the report presented to the Police Services Board on April 22, Nazi is listed as one of the 27 identified victim groups targeted in hate-motivated criminal acts in 2009. Under the breakdown of occurrences by police division, “Nazi” is listed as the victim group for one mischief offence that was […]

No Irish Need Apply and other Half-President Half-Truths

The Good News: Finally, Administration Focuses on Jobs! The Bad News: It’s Jobs for Illegals

BORDER SNORTERS Commandante Hugo Hussein Ortega de Golfcourse: “Government has a responsibility to enforce the law and secure our borders…” “…theoretically speaking…” “Many businesses work to comply with the law every day.” “And we here in Washington work tirelessly to undermine them.” “And people who are in America illegally have a responsibility — to pay […]

London Calling

COLLECT The Adventures of Mayor Maynot: Miss Armstrong was pushed against a car by the girls, one of whom had an iron bar. The victim called out for help to a passing cyclist, who turned out to be the Mayor. He stopped and chased the girls down the street, calling them “oiks” [“louts”], according to […]

Call me old-fashioned

AND THEN MIX ME ONE but I preferred the good old days of journalistic integrity, when CBS news anchors would limit their cross-dressing to weekends, and not let it bleed over into the work-week like Harry/Julia does here. Mr. Smith waits all year to pretend this is just about Halloween. Sure. Whatever you need to […]

Driving Miss Muhammed Atta

OBAMA’S DMV DMZ From the Democrat Primary debates earlier this century: The late Tim Russert: “…Governor of New York Eliot Spitzer has proposed giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. …Why does it make a lot of sense to give an illegal immigrant a driver’s license?” Chris Dodd: …The idea that we’re going to extend this […]

The PoS that wouldn’t die

“Learned his lesson?” Nope; lying through his teeth, saying whatever he thinks he has to to keep conservatives dumb, or at least alarmed enough about who really is the “lesser of two evils” to keep them firmly on the RINO plantation. Yum, yum, tasty!

Borders? We don’t need no steenkin’ borders

And I quote: We love immigrants in Utah. And we don’t oftentimes make the distinction between legal and illegal. In fact I think Utah was the first state in the country to legislate the ability to get a drivers license based on the matricula consular and of that I am proud. The rest of the […]

A thought

Interesting: COLUMBIA — South Carolina farmers say the state’s plans to clamp down on illegal immigration will only cause confusion and hurt the economy but will not solve the problem. The South Carolina House is expected on Wednesday to debate legislation that would severely punish employers who knowingly hire illegal workers. The proposal, as passed […]

House Fence of cards

Methinks he left a small little something out: Technical problems with the same 28-mile project that Secretary Chertoff personally had vouchsafed were cited by Homeland Security Department officials as the reason for the three-year delay of the project — which, let me remind you, the secretary had said just five days before was ready to […]

Outrage

This is simply beyond belief: A reader asked me to check into information that President Bush was pushing a massive foreign-aid package to Mexico to help them secure their southern border against the flow of illegal aliens from Central America. “We can’t even get our own border straight, and we are going to provide Mexico […]

But they’ll be back — count on it

Yes indeedy. Maybe there’s some hope left after all. (Image swiped from Rob) Update! Bill surveys the ruins. And this Locopunk post is still perfectly relevant: What lobby or combination of lobbies is so omnipotent as to transform lifelong political cowards into reckless gamblers who sneer right in the faces of the voters who put […]

Immigration Reform

It seems that a series of California raids on places harboring ‘fugitive aliens’ or ‘criminal aliens’ – has netted a lot of aliens with serious criminal records, including a man wanted for murder, and a convicted child molester. Ordinarily, these are classed as “criminal aliens,” a term of art that means they are very readily […]

Politics 101

Ask a silly (rhetorical) question: There is only one provision that has unanimous support: stronger border enforcement. I’ve seen senators stand up and object to the point system, to chain migration, to guest workers, to every and any idea in this bill — except one. I have yet to hear a senator stand up and […]

Traveshamockery round-up

Chuck Muth simply takes Shrubby apart, piece by grubby piece. Peggy Noonan says the party ain’t abandoning Bush – Bush abandoned the party. Don’t miss this exchange between a friend of MKH’s and a clueless RNC phone solicitor. Rick Moran on ex-parrots and the choir invisible. Uncle Jimbo says it as well as I’ve heard […]

Another kiss-off, with extra malaise

It’s a real mess out there: I have a very good friend who is an immigrant from Central America. A conversation last year over immigration got to the point where she accused me of being a “racist, just like the rest of those people” at which point I told her she was welcome to call […]

Color Me a Racist Bigot Too, Lindsey

Lindsey Graham, that odious little Deputy Dawg talkin’ piece of catfish bait, said anybody who opposes this immigration bill is just a racist bigot, and we’re not havin’ none uh thayat. Well, maybe so. But this racist bigot is going to say his piece. First off, I don’t care either way for or against Mexicans, […]

A Problem of Grammar, and a Problem of Graham-er

We are told that the White House and the Senate are not going to call the ‘comprehensive’ immigration deform bill what it really is, which is an amnesty program. Sure, I could get into some criticisms of it. For one thing, when all those illegals file back tax returns, they’ll probably find out that they’re […]

I Got You, Beeb

“…this copious stream of pontifical, anonymous mugwumpery with which we have been dosed for so long.”–Churchill, on the BBC The Telegraph: Private Johnson Beharry’s courage in rescuing an ambushed foot patrol then, in a second act, saving his vehicle’s crew despite his own terrible injuries earned him a Victoria Cross.

The Seinfeld Sovereign

AN ENTIRE NATION…ABOUT NOTHING? The question is not whether the British Navy can still defend Britain. The question is not even whether the British Navy can still defend the British Navy. The question is this: Is there such a thing as England, and if so, is it worthy of being defended? Because in all cases […]
