Senate Democrats just blocked a proposed bill that would deny so-called “sanctuary cities” federal funding to the extent such cities openly undermine federal laws regarding our nation’s borders (emphasis added below).

The legislation blocked in the Senate stems from the July 1 shooting of Kate Steinle in San Francisco. The man accused of killing her, Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, was in the country illegally despite a long criminal record and five prior deportations.

Because San Francisco is a sanctuary city for illegal aliens, local police released Sanchez despite a request from federal immigration authorities to keep him behind bars. A short time later, Kate Steinle was dead. <cnsnews.com, link>

Sanctuary city death of Kate Steinle

Harry Reid, who possesses none of Mitt Romney’s genteel ways (that’s why he wins policy battles, Mitt), had this to say:

Republicans are wasting the American people’s time with a partisan vote on the Donald Trump Act. That’s what we’re going to vote on at 2:15. That’s what the House members have called it, and I think it’s a pretty good description of what we’re doing out there.

I admire Harry’s willingness to go for the jugular against political opponents, and what a terrible shame it is that he is always on the wrong side of issues.

What prompted me to write about this particular Democrat party act of elevating illegal and criminal illegal aliens above ordinary American citizens is a comment that Reid made about sanctuary cities:

In a speech on the Senate floor before the vote, Reid defended states’ and communities’ right to “do the things they think are appropriate.”


What we have here is a great opportunity to revisit a fundamental principle of American government, which is to apportion power across LOCAL, STATE, and NATIONAL (federal) governmental bodies, each of which has its own legislated and established case law that addresses the functioning of society.

What issues belong to the Federal Government as opposed to the State and Local governments?

Harry Reid, in the case of cities choosing to openly reject federal laws regarding the sovereignty of our country’s borders, supports the rights of local and state governments to give the middle finger to the federal government.

But as usual, he has it backwards and is on the wrong side of an issue.

I am a huge believer in federalism (states’ rights); in fact it is part of the bedrock of my political philosophy. At the same time, the federal government SHOULD be more involved in issues in which coordination across state lines is essential, and illegal immigration is a perfect example of this.

National defense is another: if a foreign power attached Louisiana, should Louisiana have to raise its own army and then coordinate with the armies of Mississippi and Texas (neighboring states)? Of course not: the nation as a whole must have a military organization that transcends each of the 50 states.

This concept is so simple a child can understand it, and we can all be sure that Harry Reid and Manchurian Obama understand it very well.

But they have an agenda, which involves ruthless central control of our lives and bodies, and they will trample the states in a million ways on their way to a full-blown Orwellian regime. If illegal immigration means a faster path to their dream of a New Feudalism in which we are mere subjects and they are the kings and queens who lord over us, then by all means, be a sanctuary city.

Just a quick note to once again observe the insanity of the human animal: in the last six months I’ve traveled outside the country quite a bit, and each time I enter a foreign country and have my papers checked thoroughly….and each time I return to the great United States, the greatest country to ever grace the face of the earth, and have my papers checked thoroughly — “What countries did you visit; why did you travel there; are you brining in any food, insects, etc etc etc…” — I marvel that there are political leaders in our country from both political parties, and tens of millions of Americans, who believe that our border with Mexico does not matter and should not be enforced.

George W. Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, Jeb Bush, and so many more, all believe that 10 – 20 million illegal immigrants should be allowed to cross the border at will, live in the United States, earn money, repatriate that money, move freely (especially in “sanctuary cities”), get drivers’ licenses, and even collect money from various state governments (various forms of financial assistance).

This Open Border stance is, of course, entirely inconsistent with the elaborate border controls we all face when entering the United States. As I have written before, do you think you or I, as citizens, could get off a plane at LAX or JFK and re-enter the country without showing our passports and being interrogated? No way, no how, and I am glad this is the case — it is correct and sane.

Show you papers or you can't enter

Open borders are also inconsistent with every other nation on earth, even tiny island nations: you want to head to the beach for your vacation? Tell us who you are — show us your paperwork. You want to stay longer than a specified amount of time? Procure a VISA for an extended stay, and for that VISA show us paperwork including an “invitation” from a business or citizen that is the basis for your extended stay…

Etc. Etc.

UK Border control

These border controls are normal, and proper, and needed.

Customs line

And yet, otherwise rational people will stand on their heads to try and convince you that illegals should be granted citizen-status and that the border itself is some kind of offense against Mexicans (in this case).

It is quintessential nonsense.

The House passed a bill today to push back against Barack Obama’s unlawful actions on illegal immigration, and Speaker John Boehner made a beautiful and concise statement explaining what this is about: reigning in a president who has violated, and continues to violate, his oath of office. <Yahoo News, link>

This executive overreach is an affront to the rule of law and to the Constitution itself. The people made clear that they wanted more accountability from this president, and by our votes here today we will heed their will and we will keep our oath to protect and defend the Constitution.

House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, January 14, 2015.

Every article I read about Jeb Bush running for president has the following photo featured prominently in it:

Jeb Bush looking up to...where?

Could he look any more angelic, or more hopeful and kind and wonderful?

No, this photo is as good as it gets if you are Jeb Bush.

You know there is something wrong when Liberals across the media landscape are willing to publish a flattering photo in stories about him.

And we know what that something is: Jeb Bush does not believe in the sovereignty of the United States; Jeb Bush does not believe in limited government; Jeb Bush is a Bush and not a Reagan.

The whole movement to tilt the nomination in his favor disgusts me, as does this insipid photo.

I met someone today who said he refused a business trip within the USA because of his fear of Ebola. I had not read this story and told him he was being overly cautious, and that unless he is planning to fly internationally, out of LAX or JFK, for example, that he should not fear traveling between two American cities.

Well guess what?

I was wrong.

Amber Joy Vinson, a 29-year-old nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, became ill after having contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died from the killer virus earlier this month.

It was disclosed Wednesday that Vinson, an Ohio native, has been traveling in recent days.

She was aboard Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth on Monday, officials said. The CDC is trying to track down all 132 people on that flight to make sure they’re OK. <New York Post, link>

This is what it has come to, folks: you are traveling between Cleveland and Dallas on a plane and you may just be taking your life in your hands sitting next to an Ebola patient.

Where is the federal government in all of this? Nowhere.

Who is protecting the homeland? No one, and certainly not Barack Obama.

Oh, and there is this:

Freiden also said that during her self-monitoring, Vinson recorded a temperature of 99.5 — just under the 100.4-degree threshold that would have required her to seek medical attention, but which definitely should have kept her off an airliner.


When you read something like this, don’t you wonder whether Americans at this point have a kind of death wish for the nation as a whole? A nurse who cared for an Ebola patient develops a fever, is allowed to travel, gets on a plane, interacts with her family, and then gets on a plane again and flies home…

It certainly seems to me that we are headed for an Ebola outbreak inside the homeland, and if you think, as Jon Stewart apparently does, that this is an unwarranted and melodramatic reaction to the events unfolding in Texas (and now Ohio…..) all I can say is: you are not welcome in my secret hideaway location and good luck to you.

I and all my friends and colleagues are astounded that Ebola patients are being brought from Africa into the United States for treatment. Whoever made the decision to do so should have his or her head examined.

But this morning National Security Adviser Susan Rice assured the nation that there is nothing to worry about:

The second American who contracted Ebola while in Liberia, Nancy Writebol of North Carolina, is expected to arrive in Atlanta today to receive treatment at Emory University Hospital. Rice says there’s a low risk of the deadly virus spreading in America. <WIBC, link>

The risk to Americans is deemed by the Centers for Disease Control to be very low… This is not a disease that can be communicated by sneezing or airborne or food or water.

Wow, I feel so much better now that a high-ranking serial liar within the Obama administration has issued this reassurance, don’t you?

Never mind that Susan Rice also made the following comments about other matters of national security.

On the Obama prisoner swap of the Taliban “dream team” (5 senior military commanders) for Bowe Bergdahl, a known deserter and anti-American man (yes, he wrote to his parents that “The horror that is America is disgusting” <link>) — actual Susan Rice quote on an ABC News appearance:

Rice Bergdhal

Source: an ABC News appearance on 6/1/14 with George Stephanopoulos <link>

Rice’s comment on Bergdahl despite his obvious acts of dishonor while on the field of battle show just how untrustworthy her words are.

And then there is her legendary Benghazi lie:

Susan Rice actual quote (WSJ Blog, link):

The information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. That what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video.

People of all political stripes condemned this obvious lie, especially when it became clear that she was instructed by the Obama administration to say such lies.

New White House emails made public Tuesday by conservative Judicial Watch further support that the Obama team wanted then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to stress that a video disparaging the Prophet Muhammad was the catalyst for a series of anti-American protests across the Islamic world, including the deadly attacks on the Benghazi mission in September 2012.

In an e-mail with the subject line: “PREP CALL with Susan,” deputy national security adviser for strategic communications Ben Rhodes wrote that one of the goals before Rice went on the Sunday news shows after the killing of four Americans  was to “underscore these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.” <The Washington Post, link>

And so when she opens her mouth now about anything, whether important or unimportant, rational listeners can only conclude one thing: that she is lying, and cannot be trusted.

It reminds one of the president, does it not?

We live in Orwellian times indeed.

We are supposed to believe that over 57,000 children somehow managed to trek 2,000 miles from Central America through Mexico on their way to the southern border of the United States.

1,900 mile march by children?

Barack Obama, purveyor of innumerable lies and manipulations designed to advance his anti-American agenda, is playing the ultimate propaganda game with these unfortunate souls by challenging American citizens to “turn away the children”, knowing that such a thing goes against the grain of all human beings.

And yet one simply cannot believe that children could survive such a trek “unescorted”.

In fact they were not unescorted.

Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson admitted at a Tuesday press conference that nearly all the roughly 50,000 Central American youths who have crossed the Texas border since October are accompanied by smugglers hired by the youth’s parents or families. <Daily Caller, link>

It is our observation and our experience that almost all of of them are smuggled.

So the whole thing has been a lie.

The children have been escorted right to our back door, and then ushered in by this most lawless of presidents.

Parents in Central America heard Barack Obama’s call to invasion — aka the promise of citizenship for children under presidential fiat, aka a government of, by, and for a King — and they promptly hired smugglers to produce an illegal immigrant tidal wave of children.

No doubt the parents expect to become American citizens themselves, later on, when Liberal politicians in America attempt to bludgeon us all unconscious with the “moral urgency of reuniting families”.

When you look at the step-by-step genius of this infiltration in direct circumvention of our sovereignty and laws and popular will and Congress, you have to tip your cap to the enemy within. A foreign power could never damage us as badly.

But there is more bad news.

White House Hid Huge Spike Of Families Crossing Border

New data shows the White House has painted a false picture of the Central American migration by hiding a huge spike in “family units” who are illegally crossing the Texas border. The data, which was dumped by the U.S. border patrol late Friday afternoon, shows that inflow of youths and children traveling without parents has doubled since 2013, to 57,525 in the nine months up to July 2014.

But the number of migrants who cross the border in so-called “family units” has spiked five-fold to 55,420, according to the border patrol’s data. <Daily Caller, link>

And yet Barack Obama would of course propagandize that he is pushing for “immigration reform”.

The truth is that there are many Republicans who would support immigration reform if the president and Congress had the will to secure the border first. In other words, stop pretending that we are actually keeping the influx at bay and instead do something to actually secure the border.

Democrats barely pay even lip service to this reasonable request, and even those who do can now enjoy along with the rest of us the naked truth about Barack Obama’s true intentions: that our country have no southern border at all, will free social services funded by the U.S. taxpayer for all those who can come and get them.

Putting aside the cultural implications of a non-assimilating wave of millions and you still have a national bankruptcy very much in our future as tax payers fall increasingly behind (now $17 trillion in debt and counting, in a $14 trillion economy).

We just can’t afford it anymore, but hey, the fantasy of “doing good” is awesome, even when the reality is that we are doing bad.

To ourselves, and to those children who trekked those thousands of miles.

Not even their welfare stands in the way of mr. Obama’s wish to bury this nation.
