You know something. I hate Washington, DC think tanks where supposedly brainy people get paid to tell Americans what to think. I even hate a lot of think tanks on the supposedly conservative side. Right now, I’m pretty steamed at the Heritage Foundation, but that is a story for another day.
This ‘brilliant’ (not!) bit by someone calledFaris Alikhan popped up in my alerts today.
Alikhan writes for a think tank called Third Way and formerly was associated with the Center for American Progress (hard Left John Podesta think tank).
Alikhan’s advice to the brain dead is entitled: ‘The US should accept more Syrian refugees to boost our national security.’
He suggests that the Muslim world is going to love us, if we let them in! Posted at The Guardian:
There’s a host of humanitarian and moral reasons for the US to resettle more Syrian refugees. But there’s another compelling reason to do so – and that’s because it’s in America’s long term interests.
The US has the rare opportunity to nurture a generation of pro-American Arab Muslims. In national security, it’s a rare confluence when the right thing to do is also the smart thing to do. This is one such opportunity.
At a time when pundits and politicians discuss the decline of American power, it’s important to remember that an element of America’s ‘soft power’ that is often overlooked is its openness to immigration, and the effect that can have on overseas public opinion, especially when it’s easy to communicate with family and friends back home.
He goes on to say that if we raise Syrian Arab Muslim children in America they won’t grow up to be terrorists.
Of course, the Somali ‘refugee’ terrorism recruitment success in places like Minneapolis puts a lie to that cockamamie idea.
And here is another story about the shocking election at The Journal. The newly elected government promises to help Polish people first! (Gee, what a novel concept!) And, wants to distance itself from the EU.
POLAND’S CONSERVATIVE LAW and Justice party won a landslide in yesterday’s general election on anti-refugee rhetoric and welfare promises, ending eight years of centrist rule in a victory that risks inflaming tensions with the EU and Russia.
The eurosceptic PiS led by Jaroslaw Kaczynski garnered an outright majority, according to projections from partial results by local television channels, ousting leftist parties from parliament for the first time since the fall of communism in 1989.
“This is the first time in the history of Polish democracy that a single party has scored (an outright) majority” in the Sejm, the lower house, Kaczynski said in a victory speech after Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz conceded defeat.
Julia Hahn atBreitbart has been doing great work in exposing the players (traitors!) behind the House Speaker campaign of Rep. Paul Ryan.
Update: Paul Ryan victory party invitations are out! See here. (Hat tip: Cathy), and Diana West reports on the role played by the Heritage Foundation(very troubling!), here. (I’ve been done with them for awhile anyway!)
The House “Freedom Caucus” (listed below) is not a group friendly to Americans looking to control immigration or to American workers.
By the way, for me, immigration is the only issue that matters. We will live or die depending on how many immigrants we admit and from where they come. Once they change the demographic make-up of America, no other issue you care about will matter.
Forall of you fighting to slow refugee resettlement in South Carolina and Idaho, two members of Congress (dressed in Tea Party clothes***) in your states are working against you.
While I have written disdainfully of Rep. Trey Gowdyfor dragging his feet (as Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security) on holding hearings on the Refugee Admissions Program, it turns out that fellow South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney has been working overtime on amnesty for illegal aliens and no doubt is helping push refugees into the state (likely cheered on bySCSenator Lindsey Grahamwho recently made it clear that he wants Syrian Muslims admitted to the US in large numbers).
And, no wonder Republican Governor Nikki Halleyis toeing the line and “welcoming” refugees to SC. The state’s leading Republicans are working to promote MORE immigration to America. She is obviously too weak to buck them (if she wanted to!).
Let me be clear, while many of you reading this blog have made a distinction between LEGAL immigration and ILLEGAL, that is—‘illegal is bad’ and ‘legal is o.k. sometimes’—the other side is making no such distinction.
This is about mass migration no matter how they get here for the no borders agitators, for Obama, for the Democrat party looking for more votes, and for the big donor interests of the Republican Party (give us cheap labor!).
Hereis Julia Hahn on Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) and Raul Labrador (R-ID). I’ve snipped just a bit of her investigative report, please read it all! ***Update*** Reader Robin suggests you watch the whole PBS video referenced by clicking here.
In recent days, prominent conservatives and grassroots activists have slammed the House Freedom Caucus for what they described as a “betrayal” of the Republican electorate. As Rush Limbaugh said after Ryan issued his list of demands to House lawmakers:
You would not think that the Freedom Caucus, the conservatives in the House, the Tea Party caucus, whatever you want to call them, no way would they go along with this. No way under the sun would they go along with this. … But it looks like enough of them will. … This is how we get. … I don’t want to say “played,” folks, but I’m telling you: the script is written offsite, backstage. We don’t see that. We see everybody playing their part, including the Freedom Caucus members.
However, what conservative activists describe as a “betrayal” is, for several key members of the House Freedom Caucus, the fulfillment of their long-time desire to implement amnesty and alter the demographics of their districts through expanded immigration.While the GOP electorate ejected Eric Cantor in large measure due to his support for Marco Rubio’s amnesty drive—followed by Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) and current Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)—the PBS documentary reveals that one of the founding members of the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), embraces an even more progressive immigration agenda than Cantor himself.
The documentary, which aired on October 20, casts Mulvaney at the center of the La Raza-backed 2013 and 2014 immigration push, alongside Paul Ryan and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL).
Mulvaney told CNN that he believes his colleagues should throw their support behind Ryan’s Speakership and declared, “The bottom line is if he wants to be Speaker, he has the votes as of tonight.” With those words, Mulvaney all but ensured that the Speakership would go to the man whom NumbersUSA President Roy Beck described as “terrifying” and “the heart and soul of crony capitalism”:
He has spent his entire adulthood ideologically connected to the open borders crowd. Open Borders is in his ideological DNA. That’s the terrifying thing. He’s an ideologue and his spent his whole life working for ideologues. Open borders seeps out of every pore of his being.
Idaho resistance pay attention!
Another pro-amnesty House Freedom Caucus Member, Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), echoed Mulvaney’s declaration that the Speakership was now a lock for Ryan: “We can support him and we want him to be successful,” Labrador said. Labrador was a member of the House’s Gang of Eight effort to pass amnesty until public pressure forced him to drop out of the group. As Breitbart News has previously reported, immigration experts have described Labrador as equally enthusiastic about expanding immigration as is Kevin McCarthy or Eric Cantor.
We should have all been paying attention to Patrick Cleburne writing at VDAREin 2014: ‘Treason Lobby Flaunts Control Of South Carolina GOP Via Hispandering Poodle Rep Mulvaney (SC-5)’ (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum). By the way, Mulvaney’s district is right next door to Spartanburg and Trey Gowdy’s district.
Conservative South Carolina voters need to go to the ballet box and spare the nation those ‘Republicans’ you are sending to Congress (likely with the blessing of Senator Lindsey Graham).
***Here are the other members of the so-called “Freedom Caucus.” Most, as we learn from Hahn, are Libertarians and not true conservatives or Tea Partiers for that matter. Libertarians have long been advocates for more immigration to America.
My recommendation is, if you see your member on this list—tell them to get the h*** out of this caucus! List from wikipedia, here.
The tiny nation of Slovenia has received 60,000 Middle Eastern and North African migrants in the past week. Thousands remain stranded near the Austrian border, as the prime minister warned the crisis could be “the end of the [European Union] EU.”
Dramatic drone footage filmed near the Croatia-Austria border shows thousands of migrants and refugees crossing through farmland on foot.
The migrants have been diverted through Slovenia since Hungary closed its border at the beginning of September. Viktor Orbán’s government built a razor wire fence and made illegal crossings a criminal offence.
For opening the gates to the Hijra, I predict that German Chancellor Angela Merkel will go down in history as one of the greatest traitors of Christian Europe the world will have ever seen. But then again, to the Islamists (who will be writing the history books) she will be the hero for Allah.
For all of our ‘Invasion of Europe’ postsgo here(they extend back several years and I mention that because there was time to stop the invasion early if European leaders in Germany, Italy, France and the UK had any guts, they didn’t).
Here is a discussion at Breitbart about radio talk show host Michael Savage’s latest book. I have not much time to say more because I woke up to literally dozens of things that need to be posted because the destruction of western civilization is advancing rapidly now across the world and you need to know more about it.
This past weekend, conservative talk radio icon and author of multiple New York Times bestsellers Dr. Michael Savage and Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alexander Marlow discussed his latest book Government Zero: No Borders, No Language, No Culture.
Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday, which airs on SiriusXM Patriot channel 125, Dr. Savage explained that this is the first interview in the campaign for his new book. Marlow said he was honored and reminded Savage that their interview together last year, discussing Stop the Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth, was one of the highlights of the year for Breitbart News Saturday.
Savage, who holds a PhD in nutrition from the University of California at Berkeley, recounted that during his last interview with Marlow, when they discussed Stop the Coming Civil War, “I don’t know if we stopped it or started it.”
In 2012, Savage admits, “I told conservative voters who were not going to vote to hold their nose and vote for Romney.” He expected that when Republicans regained power in congress, “Our work would begin and we would have to hold their feet to the fire.” Unfortunately, that didn’t work very well, he acknowledged. “They have no feet to put to the fire. They’re footless.”
It is even worse than footless, we have traitors among us who have been masquerading as members of the deceptively titled “Freedom Caucus”and with funding from some of the Republican establishment’s elitist big donors and the Chamber of Commerce (those who have completely bought the notion that amnesty and more legal immigration are needed to supply cheap laborers for their businesses) we are about to get a wolf in sheep’s clothing as Speaker of the House—Rep. Paul Ryan.
Average middle class, patriotic American workers be damned.
