Hispanics Have Again Said They Favor Strict Gun Control

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 1 day ago

As we’ve discussed before, Pew research recently performed a poll in which they concluded that “62 percent of Hispanics polled by Pew say they support controlling gun ownership, versus 45 percent for the nation.”  Yet another more recent Pew study concludes the same thing, but with worse statistics than before.

Today, about six-in-ten whites (61%) prioritize gun rights over gun control. By contrast, only about a third of blacks say this (34%) while six-in-ten (60%) say it is more important to control gun ownership. And Hispanics prioritize gun control over gun rights by a wide 71% to 25% margin.

And yet these are the people whom the government is allowing to cross the border, even abetting their permanent residency here, with states like Texas and Arizona deeply implicated in Hispanic voter proclivities.

Scott Walker, Immigration And Guns

BY Herschel Smith
3 weeks, 3 days ago

Have you considered Scott Walker as a viable candidate for the GOP nomination for President?  Think again.

On the surface, Scott Walker seems like a gun owner’s dream candidate for president. The Wisconsin governor is backed by the National Rifle Association, which lauds his signing into law concealed carry and castle doctrine legislation. The “On the Issues” political leadership website notes Walker opposes restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms.

It’s unsurprising then, that NRA Director Grover Norquist has co-authored a piece for Reuters explaining “What makes Wisconsin’s Republican Governor Scott Walker a good choice for 2016.” But in this case, Norquist is wearing a different hat – that of president of Americans for Tax Reform, teaming with ATR’s director of state affairs, Patrick Gleason.

So what’s not to like? Don’t both issues track with greater freedom? Where’s the conflict?

Wearing that different hat, Norquist campaigned for and endorsed Bob Dold for Congress, in spite of the “Republican’s” support for restricting gun purchases and possession which was known at the time. The unsuitability of Dold’s Democrat opponent notwithstanding, NRA Director Norquist chose his priorities and endorsed a known gun-grabber who went on to accept an award from the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence.

There’s an issue besides taxes Norquist has yet another hat for: immigration. Just like Barack Obama, Norquist endorses rewarding alien nationals who have broken U.S. law by entering and remaining in this country illegally with a “pathway to citizenship.”

And Walker agrees with him.

He’s owned by the Chamber of Commerce.  He’s no different than George Bush, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and most other republicans.  David’s article is well researched and full of URLs for you to go and study the issue yourself.  I intentionally don’t supply the reference material so that you will visit Gun Rights Examiner.

The reasons for my rejection of Walker because of his stance on immigration are multifaceted.  First of all, the envelopment of America by immigrants changes everything, from language and culture, to generational demographics, racial demographics, and economic health of the country.

The immigrants to whom we have opened our borders are in the main low paid, low skill workers.  Big business loves them, because they can cut their bottom line.  They get away with this because we – middle class America – foot the bill for their medical care, SNAP, welfare and other necessities, thus providing corporate welfare for executives and members of the boards of directors.

The Democrats love them because they will vote democratic.  Recall what we’ve already discussed.

“For historical reasons to do with the nationalisation of the land under Lázaro Cárdenas and the predominant form of peasant land tenure, which was “village cooperative” rather than based on individual plots, the demand for “land to the tiller” in Mexico does not imply an individual plot for every peasant or rural worker or family. In Mexico, collectivism among the peasantry is a strong tradition … one consequence of these factors is that the radical political forces among the rural population are on the whole explicitly anti-capitalist and socialist in their ideology. Sometimes this outlook is expressed in support for guerilla organisations; but struggle movements of the rural population are widespread, and they spontaneously ally with the most militant city-based leftist organisations.”

One of the reasons for this reflexive alignment with leftism has to do with the the mid-twentieth century and what the Sovient Union and allied ideologies accomplished.  South and Central America was the recipient or receptacle for socialism draped in religious clothing, or in other words, liberation theology.  Its purveyors were Roman Catholic priests who had been trained in Marxism, and they were very successful in giving the leftists a moral platform upon which to build.  This ideology spread North from South and Central America into Mexico, and thus the common folk in Mexico are quite steeped in collectivist ideology from battles that were fought decades ago.

So Hispanics and Latinos think and vote as collectivists, but do their views on gun control reflect that heritage?

Latinos take a more conservative view on pot legalization and a more-pro view on gun control, according to a fresh report on politics from the Pew Research Center.

About 49 percent of Hispanics polled support legalization of marijuana versus 53 percent for the total U.S. population. Liberalization of pot use is gaining support around the nation. Come January, in Dallas County, there may be some loosening on pot prosecution with a pilot project that gives tickets rather than jail time for simple possession, as we reported here.

On gun control, 62 percent of Hispanics polled by Pew say they support controlling gun ownership, versus 45 percent for the nation.

David warned you, and again.  And listen to me yet again on this.  With every immigrant crossing the border, you will see the government acceptance and acknowledgment of your God given gun rights evaporate, further every day.

Hispanics And Latinos Favor Gun Control

BY Herschel Smith

David Codrea has warned you:

Why the “gun control” groups keep quiet about illegal immigration is understandable. Those in it for the long haul, who hope and believe Americans can be disarmed within a generation, recognize that this can give them an unbeatable political majority within a decade or two, to remake the legislatures and courts and reverse all the legislative and judicial victories gained to date.

That explains motives of the gun-grabbers. But what about gun rights organizations? Why has only one national group sounded the alarm?

Also see David here for a followup.  And I have tried to explain that Hispanics and Latinos will vote collectivist because that’s there world view.

“For historical reasons to do with the nationalisation of the land under Lázaro Cárdenas and the predominant form of peasant land tenure, which was “village cooperative” rather than based on individual plots, the demand for “land to the tiller” in Mexico does not imply an individual plot for every peasant or rural worker or family. In Mexico, collectivism among the peasantry is a strong tradition … one consequence of these factors is that the radical political forces among the rural population are on the whole explicitly anti-capitalist and socialist in their ideology. Sometimes this outlook is expressed in support for guerilla organisations; but struggle movements of the rural population are widespread, and they spontaneously ally with the most militant city-based leftist organisations.”

A very important Pew poll was just released, and The Dallas News headlined it this way: Latinos take more conservative view on pot but not on gun control.

Latinos take a more conservative view on pot legalization and a more-pro view on gun control, according to a fresh report on politics from the Pew Research Center.

About 49 percent of Hispanics polled support legalization of marijuana versus 53 percent for the total U.S. population. Liberalization of pot use is gaining support around the nation.

On gun control, 62 percent of Hispanics polled by Pew say they support controlling gun ownership, versus 45 percent for the nation.

Nearly two thirds of Hispanics and Latinos are collectivists when it comes to gun rights.  And just consider – there are tens of millions of these new voters being added to the rolls considering the recent Supreme Court losses concerning voter ID laws.  This is in my estimation the most serious threat Americans face.

More On Immigration And Gun Ownership

BY Herschel Smith
3 months, 1 week ago

David Codrea:

Regular readers of this column know it is one of the few venues, following a lead established by Gun Owners of America, warning that the administration’s position — that those who have violated U.S. immigration and residency laws have “earned” the right to citizenship — will lead to an increase of millions of Democrat voters and a political threat to the right to keep and bear arms.

But forget what GOA says, and about past columns here, and again let’s focus solely on that which simply is. To do that, let’s again reference the AP report.

“Hispanics make up nearly 70 percent of the district that she seeks to represent, and nationally, Latinos overwhelmingly support Democrats,” it observes.

And nationally, aside from individual voting records which can be consulted, and aside from being the party from which the overwhelming majority of “gun control” measures are demanded, the official Democrat platform calls for “reasonable regulations … like reinstating the assault weapons ban and closing the gun show loophole.”

Torres is in lockstep with that program.

I’m glad David has focused on this again.  It bears repeating.  Hispanics and Latinos will vote progressive because that’s their world view.

“For historical reasons to do with the nationalisation of the land under Lázaro Cárdenas and the predominant form of peasant land tenure, which was “village cooperative” rather than based on individual plots, the demand for “land to the tiller” in Mexico does not imply an individual plot for every peasant or rural worker or family. In Mexico, collectivism among the peasantry is a strong tradition … one consequence of these factors is that the radical political forces among the rural population are on the whole explicitly anti-capitalist and socialist in their ideology. Sometimes this outlook is expressed in support for guerilla organisations; but struggle movements of the rural population are widespread, and they spontaneously ally with the most militant city-based leftist organisations.”

One of the reasons for this reflexive alignment with leftism has to do with the the mid-twentieth century and what the Sovient Union and allied ideologies accomplished.  South and Central America was the recipient or receptacle for socialism draped in religious clothing, or in other words, liberation theology.  Its purveyors were Roman Catholic priests who had been trained in Marxism, and they were very successful in giving the leftists a moral platform upon which to build.  This ideology spread North from South and Central America into Mexico, and thus the common folk in Mexico are quite steeped in collectivist ideology from battles that were fought decades ago.

But just to rehearse the events that are occurring at breakneck speed, the GOP is about to be swamped with two million democratic voters.  There is a growing backlog at the immigration courts.

The backlog of pending deportation cases in federal immigration court has risen to nearly 400,000 amid a crush of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children and families caught crossing the Mexican border illegally this year, according an analysis of court data released Friday.

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University said in its latest report that as of the end of July, 396,552 cases were pending in the Justice Department’s 59 immigration courts. TRAC collects and studies a variety of federal prosecution records.

Cartels are taking over the border, and illegals have been recently responsible for kidnapping and extortion on American soil.

So in addition to ensuring that the civil war the progressives demand occurs, they are adding voters to the rolls to ensure that America is disarmed.  On one side are the bankers, politicians, DEA, DHS, DOJ, ATF, EPA and BLM, and on the other side is you.

Whatever fights you think we’ve had over guns until this point will prove to be skirmishes.  Hard times are coming, and the notion of ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ will take on new meaning.

Following The Border Security Dollars

BY Herschel Smith
4 months ago

Follow the money, and I did, starting with The Washington Post.

ENCINO, Tex. — Elias Pompa had a thousand square miles of backcountry to patrol by himself, but now all he could see was the red Texas clay coating his windshield. “Damn dirt,” the sheriff’s deputy said, turning on his wipers, trying to follow the road as dusk closed in on him 11 hours into his shift. The gravel lane turned into two trail ruts, and the trail disappeared in sand and mesquite. He checked his location on a map, but the nearest marked road was three miles away.

He had been dispatched to this part of Brooks County to investigate an open window at an abandoned ranch building — another potential break-in in the nation’s busiest corridor for illegal immigration, where break-ins could mean any number of things. He had driven this way before to investigate robberies where the only item missing was water, stolen by groups of migrant children crossing the desert alone. He had come to confront drug cartel members carrying backpacks loaded with knives and 70 pounds of marijuana. He had come to rescue immigrants dying of dehydration and he had come when it was too late, carrying a state-issued body bag.

… whenever an immigration-related emergency prompts someone here to dial 911, as happens a few dozen times a day, the call rings to a nearly bankrupt sheriff’s office in one of the poorest counties in Texas, where on this day the only available solution to an international crisis was a 37-year-old deputy who earns $11.50 an hour.

Contrast:

The recent flood of illegal immigrants across the southern border has caused many Americans to wonder why our country is seemingly incapable of border security.

A fence is in place in some areas while others are completely open. With that in mind, many Americans will be surprised to learn that the State Department is now funding the construction of a border fence in Ukraine.

Jeryl Bier of The Weekly Standard reported:

Feds Buy Border Fence … for Ukraine

As part of the U.S. Crisis Support Package for Ukraine announced by the White House in April, the State Department awarded a $435,000 contract to B.K. Engineering System in Kyiv for razor wire to help “defend the newly imposed borders between Ukraine’s mainland and the Crimean peninsula.” The contract was awarded on June 12, but was just posted online this week.

An $8 million “non-lethal assistance” package was announced at the same time as a larger $50 million aid package for Ukraine to “help Ukraine pursue political and economic reform and strengthen the partnership between the United States and Ukraine.” The razor wire (Concertina) is included under “[e]ngineering equipment, communications equipment, vehicles, and non-lethal individual tactical gear for Ukraine’s Border Guard Service” that was spelled out in the April Fact Sheet.

So there you have it – the priorities of your government.  And none of this is by accident.  You do understand that, don’t you?

Notes From HPS

David Codrea:

A former lieutenant and a current sheriff, each implying the other is lying, doesn’t cut it. Whichever way it falls, the public deserves to know the truth.

You mean to tell me that a LEO is lying?  Say it ain’t so!  Actually, while this idea is not popular among the “only ones” and their gun control advocates who talk incessantly about them being trained to handle firearms and react under pressure, a friend (former captain of a large PD) tells me that most officers pull their weapons once per year at qualification and no more.

Mike Vanderboegh on the men we left behind in North Vietnam.  I had always suspected that.

Mike Vanderboegh on Kevlar helmets and their capabilities.  Worth reading this post.

This incident shows that you should always be ready for a gun battle in situations of self defense.

Vega was armed and tried to defend his family. There was a dramatic gun battle that reportedly involved the mortally wounded agent telling his father, “Keep shooting, Dad.” At one point Vega’s mother grabbed an AR-15 and fired away at the killers’ fleeing car.

Two million new Latino voters will swamp the GOP.  And now you understand again why Obama is doing what he’s doing.

Overwhelming Costs For Dealing With Dead Immigrants

BY Herschel Smith
4 months, 2 weeks ago

Remember when I told you this?

Now for burials, espenses and the like. It occurs to me that we are still seeing things through the lens of comfortable America, with our attendant luxuries. For anyone who has buried a loved one recently, you know the expense associated with it.

By the time you’ve bought a legal casket, purchased the death certificates and a burial plot, you’ve spent $15,000 MINIMUM. It can run MUCH higher than that if you want a service or a burial plot in a good location. $30,000 – $40,000 is not uncommon, or even more. Much more.

These things are all functions of state regulations and laws. You cannot simply bury people anywhere you want. It becomes a health concern. So let’s say that I’m a rancher living in South Texas or Arizona, and there are illegals on my land because it’s a thoroughfare. If someone perished on the journey, would I be willing to take a shovel out and dig a grave myself (right there where they lay)? Sure. Would I be willing to do it 25 times? Maybe. Would I be willing to do it 500 times? No. I have to hold down a job. And I’m certainly not willing to spend everything I have at $15,000 – $20,000 a burial to ensure all illegals have a proper grave.

You see, this goes well beyond whether I’m willing to spend my time or money on others. Many men are. This redounds to whether I’m willing to spend the money of my children and children’s children on others. And remember, “The good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.”

So now, think of the poor ranchers in Texas and Arizona. They have the costs of burial, paperwork, cleanup of the environment of trash, feces, debris and water bottles, and removal of the animal carcasses after the illegals have killed them for food. Furthermore, we all have the expense of education, welfare, food stamps (SNAP), medical care, etc., etc., for tens of millions of illegals entering the country.

Here is a report from the Southern border.

‘I am not surprised to find immigrants dying 70 miles north of the border,’ Burgard told MailOnline, but ‘I am surprised that nine years later it is still a secret to most of the American people.’

‘The Federal Government has long known about this,’ he said, ticking off Texas and Arizona counties where human remains are continually turning up.

‘Local officials who deal with collecting the bodies are so overwhelmed financially that the cost of coroner inquests on each case is dramatically affecting their budgets.’

I’m not suggesting that you ignore the official reports.  I’m suggesting that you can hear it here first.

The Foolishness Of Militia At The Border

BY Herschel Smith
4 months, 2 weeks ago

Mike Vanderboegh links this Zerohedge piece where the following statement is apparently made by someone affiliated with some self-proclaimed militia.

“You see an illegal. You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, ‘Get back across the border or you will be shot.’ …We are not worried about an ‘International’ incident.”

In the clearest possible terms, let me make the following statement to whoever said this: You … are … an … idiot!

Mike further says this:

And if I cannot convince you that the border situation is not the immediate threat that you have to worry about — if you think I am, as some have called me, a “traitor” because I refuse to endorse a precipitate rush to the border — then, okay, fine. But please, do us all a favor and lose the boogeyman face paint. Because Bob is correct, you do look like “dangerous foolish children playing dangerous foolish games.”

Mike is a nice guy, but I’m not.  If you are the one wearing paint or doohickey’s around your face, I don’t really care what you think about me or what I’m writing.

But just to pull these threads a little more, those who rushed to the border to stop this catastrophe use your eyes, but you don’t see.  You listen, but you don’t hear.  You cannot discern the signs of the times because you think you control too much and trust yourself and your power more than you should.

God will humble you, as He will us all.  And now I’ll invoke my theological views, and if you don’t want to read this analysis because of that, you’ve been warned.  Stop reading now, and don’t whine and bitch in the comments about my theology.  I’m not interested.  I’ll just delete the comments.

There are times and epochs when God judges nations and peoples.  We are in one of those times.  The innocent will suffer in the wake of his judgment, for this isn’t personal judgment – it is corporate.  He will not let nations get away with what we’ve done without paying the cost.

The threat of illegals may not be immediate, but it is existential and the things that threaten America will prove fatal.  Illegal immigration and an evil president are only symptoms of the problem.  God has commanded that nations not live with insurmountable debt and usury, and yet our entire economic system is based on that.  God has commanded us to protect the little ones, and yet millions have been aborted since the “freedom” provided to women in Roe v. Wade.  God commands men to work, and calls one who doesn’t provide for his own “worse than an infidel.”

And yet, there are 92 million Americans who are not in the labor force.  The number of unemployed Americans increases by more than 100,000 every month.  What are you going to do, militia?  Shoot every last one of those 100,000 every month?  They represent the same sort of existential threat to the American system as the illegals crossing the border.

You cannot change things.  You cannot shoot enough people, you cannot threaten your way to security, you cannot vote your way out of this.  The system if beyond repair.  America doesn’t exist anymore.  It is finished.  The seeds of its destruction were sewn long ago and they are coming into bloom as we speak.

It is true that I have recommended that we deploy the Marines to the Southern border with specific RUF/ROE to shoot anyone crossing the border with a weapon, whether they constitute an immediate threat or not.  The objection of posse comitatus rings hollow, as border security shouldn’t be seen as a law enforcement function.

But I have also recommended that we see Mexico as an enemy state, close the border to commercial traffic, stop trade and eject all illegals.  Those things will not happen because America lacks the heart to protect its children, heritage, or the integrity of its laws.

My late professor, Dr. C. Gregg Singer, said:

That the Western mind is sick unto death and that Western culture and the civilization to which it gave birth are in serious danger of collapse are facts that have become so evident that few observers are prepared to dispute this conclusion and argue for their vitality (From Rationalism to Irrationality, Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company).

This is truth, spoken with sadness of heart, for I knew Singer well.  We cannot heal America with furor, we cannot repair what’s wrong with America with our guns.  America has a heart problem.

What can we accomplish?  We and our guns and ammunition can prepare, plan, protect and secure to the extent God allows, our family, clan and tribe.  That should be our focus.  Every attempt to heal America will come to failure without a new reformation.

You do have family, clan and tribe, don’t you?  They are your first concern, aren’t they?

This Is What It Looks Like When Your Government Hates You

BY Herschel Smith

We’ve discussed it in The Administration Implementation Of The Cloward-Piven Strategy.  Now it’s even more brazen.

Hoping to stem the recent surge of migrants at the Southwest border, the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.

Of course, this has nothing whatsoever to do with “stemming the recent surge,” which was and is well-orchestrated by the administration.

Via WRSA, watch the following video, which is well worth the time.  None of this is a surprise to me or my readers.

Dystopia On The Southern Border

BY Herschel Smith
5 months, 2 weeks ago

News From Texas:

BROWNSVILLE – Ranchers along the Rio Grande say immigrant smugglers threaten them constantly.

One Cameron County rancher said smugglers ordered him to look the other way or face the consequences.

The landowner said smugglers are using trails on his property to bring illegal immigrants into the country.

The rancher said he fears for his safety.

“You don’t see anything; you don’t talk to anybody,” he said.

He said smugglers stop at nothing to get the immigrants across.

“They have no problem doing whatever it takes to protect them and their organization,” he said.

Landowners said the trails are becoming increasingly valuable to smugglers because they are not patrolled as often and public lands.

More than 180,000 illegal immigrants have crossed into the Valley this year. The landowner said he and his neighbors are feeling increasing pressure by smugglers to turn a blind eye to criminal activity.

“They basically come up to you and say, ‘we are going to give so much a day and we will drop it off and you do what you want with it,” he said.

The man said he turns smugglers down.

“Once they get a hook in you, they got you,” he said.

Or the report could have read:

“Boy, I’ll let you and your people live this time.  But the next time I see you on my property, I’ll send a 5.56 your way.  I’ll shoot your ass, burn your carcass, and bury it so deep not even the dogs will be able to find you.”

Then of course the rancher would have to follow through with it.  Either way, by no choice of his own, the Southern rancher has been cast headlong into dystopia Amerika.  As I said in my long comment to this article, either way, the Southern United States rancher will likely cease to exist.  Say goodbye to the American way of life.
