Losing The Electoral College: A Sure Path To Tyranny

BY Herschel Smith

David Codrea:

If a “popular vote” replacement of the Electoral system is allowed to stand, you can kiss “legal” recognition of the right to keep and bear arms goodbye, as well as anything meaningful ever happening to stop the ongoing invasion of “pathway to citizenship”-bound foreign nationals into this country.

As I’ve said before, the GOP’ers want the Latinos because they want cheap labor.  The labor is cheap because they’ve set up a system of socialized medicine wherein the middle class has to provide medical care for themselves and everyone else, including immigrants.  So the cost of immigration is foist on the middle class, which they want to eviscerate.

Do you doubt any of this?

The Trump administration’s Department of Justice wants to eliminate all of Obamacare and drastically roll back access to healthcare. On Monday, the Trump DOJ announced that it will continue combating the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, agreeing with a Texas federal judge’s ruling against sustaining the ACA on the basis of the GOP tax law changes in 2017. This decision to continue pushing for the repeal of the ACA is a clear signal that health care will be one of the top pressing issues in the upcoming 2020 election.

Beyond these efforts, however, there will be disastrous consequences if the law is eliminated. According to the Urban Institute’s 2019 analysis of the potential consequences of the full repeal of the ACA, an estimated 20 million people would immediately lose health care coverage, and health care spending would decrease in states where coverage rates had increased the most via the ACA.

Latinos in particular made the biggest gains in access to insurance under Obamacare over the last six years.

That’s one big reason they vote democratic by 75%-80%.  As for the issue of gun control, we’ve discussed that before at length, and the statistics match almost precisely with what the numbers of supplied.

Of course, while the GOP elitists want to line the pockets of their fellow members of the BoD of various corporations with cheap labor, the democrats want the voters.  That’s why nothing can stop this.  It is inevitable.  North Carolina was close in the last election, and Florida was a razor’s edge.

Texas will likely go blue this election or next, and Georgia is heading that way.  But lose Florida or Texas and it’s over for any resemblance of constitutional conservatism in America for this generation and the next.

I realize this may be a bit far afield from David’s main point (the electoral college), but not really so much.  The Latino population weighs big in states like New Mexico, Texas, Florida and California.  What’s going to happen if we lose the electoral college and the popular vote is all that matters?

FBI Arrests Leader Of Militia Stopping Immigrants In New Mexico

BY Herschel Smith

Reuters:

The FBI on Saturday said it had arrested Larry Hopkins, the leader of an armed group that is stopping undocumented migrants after they cross the U.S.-Mexico border into New Mexico.

[ … ]

“We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham.

Hopkins is the “national commander” of the UCP, which has had around half a dozen members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since late February.

This came after the New Mexico governor said this.

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Friday lashed out at members of a militia group who are stopping migrants at the border, declaring “regular citizens have no authority to arrest or detain anyone.”

Because they’re actually detaining and arresting them, rather than letting them go at bus stops in San Antonio and other cities like Customs and Border Patrol.  We can’t allow anyone to actually enforce the law.

In other news, the Mexican military disarmed a couple of U.S. troops on the U.S. side of the border.

Armed Mexican troops disarmed two United States soldiers while they were on the American side of the border, U.S. defense officials have said.

U.S. Northern Command said in a statement that “five to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations” this month. The U.S. soldiers were in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection [CBP] vehicle near the southwest border near Clint, Texas.

Officials confirmed that the Mexican troops were armed with what seemed to be rifles. They raised their weapons when they saw the two U.S. soldiers, and then took a pistol from one and put it in the CBP vehicle. According to officials talking to CNN, the two Americans obliged “in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation.”

That’s why they don’t want the U.S. Marine Corps on the border.  Those Mexican troops would be dead now.

But since no one in power wants to stop immigration – not the big business president, not the senate or house (the republicans in the pocket of big business, the democrats wanting more voters), and not Mexico, it won’t be stopped.

If you ever believed that immigration would come to an end at some point, disavow yourself of that notion right away, at least until the costs of covering the immigrants with medical care becomes so extreme that FedGov has to confiscate retirement accounts and 401Ks to pay for it all (they’ll “nationalize” it all, and promise to take care of everyone).

Global Socialist Leads New Zealand Disarmament

David Codrea:

It’s a sign of the age of fake “toxic masculinity” that New Zealand men would so readily give up their guns. We’re talking about a people whose ancestors tamed a wilderness now being evacuated in panic from a music festival after someone misidentified a tattoo as a sign of “right-wing extremism.”

[ … ]

She knows that because in 2008, she was elected president of the International Union of Socialist Youth, an affiliate of Socialist International, which unsurprisingly is “heartened” by the March for Our Lives “movement” and its young useful idiot figureheads.

Among IUSY’s goals: “Building a new world order” (just like George H. W. Bush called for at the UN).

“We strongly point out that the right to migrate freely in the world is fundamental,” IUSY declared in its 2009 resolutions, speaking in that case to the European Union.

Oh really?  Unlimited migration is a “fundamental right?”    If so, then I demand you give me chapter and verse from the Holy Scriptures where God stipulated that countries have no right to control over their borders.  I’m waiting.  And I’ll eat my hard hat if you can do it.

Is there any doubt that unlimited migration is a pretext for disarmament and government control over every aspect of life?

There’s A Crisis At The Border!

BY Herschel Smith
2 months, 2 weeks ago

USA Today:

Days after threatening to close the U.S. border with Mexico, President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that his administration would slap tariffs on autos long before it considered sealing the nation off from its southern neighbor.

“I don’t think we’ll ever have to close the border,” Trump said in the Oval Office.

Trump’s statement marked a significant departure from his position  last week, when he said there was a “very good likelihood” he would close the border this week. The White House faced sharp blowback from business groups and Republicans on Capitol Hill for the threat. A closure would disrupt the flow of roughly $1.5 billion in daily trade.

White House aides sought to soften the language through the week as the president prepared for a visit Friday to the border in California. Trump said earlier Thursday that he would give Mexico a year to halt the flow of illegal drugs coming into the USA. If the drugs didn’t stop, he said, the United States would impose tariffs on Mexican-made cars.

Seeking the Latino vote, is he?

There’s a crisis at the border!  There’s a crisis at the border!  There’s a crisis at the border!  Oops.  Not so much.  There will be a year from now.

What a blowhard.  In other news, a brand new gang appears.

The Cártel de Santa Rosa de Lima (CSRL) emerged from a 2017 split from the CJNG which is led by Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, aka “El Mencho.” As a result, this new cartel—the CSRL, led by José Antonio Yépez Ortiz, aka “El Marro”— now dominates the illicit fuel trade in Guanajuato

But be of good cheer.  Maybe they won’t charge too much for “protection” and fuel when they get here.  And Trump will have his Latino voters for the next election.  And America will be the land of “bring all the people here, we’re rich, we can afford it!”

The Cost Of Immigration

BY Herschel Smith
2 months, 3 weeks ago

The Washington Post:

Senior White House officials are exploring ways to exempt commercial trade from President Trump’s threat to shut down the U.S. border with Mexico, three people briefed on the discussions said, amid warnings that blocking the flow of goods between the two countries would have severe consequences for the U.S. economy.

Hmm … what costs would that be?  Maybe these costs?

“The findings of this analysis show that the average cost of a deportation is much smaller than the net fiscal drain created by the average illegal immigrant. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported the average deportation cost as $10,854 in FY 2016. In FY 2012, ICE removed 71 percent more aliens with a similar budget, creating an average inflation-adjusted cost of $5,915. This compares to an average lifetime net fiscal drain (taxes paid minus services used) of $65,292 for each illegal immigrant, excluding their descendants. This net figure is based on fiscal estimates of immigrants by education level from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS). The total fiscal drain for the entire illegal population is estimated at $746.3 billion. Of course, simply because deportation is much less costly than allowing illegal immigrants to stay does not settle the policy questions surrounding illegal immigration as there are many factors to consider. Steven A. Camarota is the director of research at the Center for Immigration Studies, 8/3/17   (Reported in www.CarryingCapacityNetwork.org)

How about this sobering figure as to LEGAL immigration?

29,000 LEGAL Immigrants per Week Cost Us U.S. Taxpayers $6.3 BILLION per Week, NET!

Unsustainable 1.5 Million Annual Legal-Immigrant Influx  Costs U.S. Taxpayers $330 Billion NET (i.e., after subtracting Taxes Immigrants Pay) per Year NET, i.e., $758 MILLION per Year for EACH Congressional District   (does not include State & Local Costs to Taxpayers)
See CCN’s Cost of Immigration Study

David Durham, director at CCN, said, “If the 1.5 to 1.6 Million Annual Legal Immigrant Inflow were cut to 150,000/Year (i.e., Zero-Net Annual Immigration = Emigration), Federal Deficit could be reduced by One-Half Trillion $ in a Decade!

And to be sure, screwing with health care subsidies means alienating the Latino population.

While the economy is usually the top voting issue among the electorate, when asked about the most important issue facing their community, 31% of Latinos viewed health care costs and access to care as the number one issue, according to Latino Decisions American Election Eve Poll findings. Moreover, Latinos feel strongly about securing Obamacare, with a large majority of 71% agreeing that the Affordable Care Act should be strengthened compared to only 15% of Latinos disagreeing with such efforts.

That’s about the percentage opposition (70%) to second amendment rights found in the Latino community, so there’s that to consider as well.

Then of course there is the drug gang violence to consider.  But we could go on all day about this, yes?

But be of good cheer.  I’m sure the “cost” Trump is trying to avoid won’t be incurred, and Monsanto and Archer-Daniels-Midland will get their low paid workers somehow.  That means the boards of directors will have their ocean-front and mountain retirement homes.

Support For Trump Dwindles Among ICE Officers

BY Herschel Smith
3 months, 1 week ago

The Washington Times:

ICE officers who endorsed President Trump in 2016 now say he has failed to follow through on his get-tough promises, saying catch-and-release of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. is not only still happening, but has gone into “overdrive.”

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers say they’re being roped into such mundane tasks as opening the doors on vans to release immigrants already caught by Border Patrol agents. That’s dragging the officers from their usual duties of nabbing fugitives, or scouring local prisons and jails for immigrant criminals who lived illegally in the U.S. ready to be deported.

The shell game is all the more “ridiculous,” the officers said, because Border Patrol agents could fill out paperwork and open the doors themselves, but the agency’s leaders don’t want to be part of catch-and-release.

“Hundreds of man hours are wasted each day at a time of crisis on the border,” the leaders of the National ICE Council, the union that represents ICE officers, said in a letter sent directly to Mr. Trump on Monday.

[ … ]

“You frequently speak publicly of the great public safety work ICE is doing under your leadership. To be direct Mr. President — the rhetoric doesn’t match reality and we hope that this letter shows you the complete and total nonsense that is really taking place under the Trump Administration on the southern border,” the ICE officers said.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

The letter comes as the situation at the southwestern border has grown out of control for Homeland Security.

Some 160,000 migrant children and family members have been encountered at the border over the last five months, shattering previous records.

Most are arrested by the Border Patrol, though 10-15 percent are encountered by Customs and Border Protection officers trying to come through a border crossing without permission.

Because of the overwhelming numbers, lack of bed space and court rulings, Homeland Security usually processes and quickly releases most of them, with the vain hope that they’ll come back for hearings and eventual deportation.

That’s been dubbed “catch-and-release,” and Mr. Trump took office promising to stop it.

Instead the rate has increased, and it’s spurred the bureaucratic sparring.

Mr. Crane says Border Patrol agents have the power to fill out the release paperwork and to do the releases on their own, but they don’t want to face the embarrassment. So they make ICE officers fill out the release paperwork, and when they drive the immigrants to bus stations to be dropped off, they make an ICE officer actually open the van doors.

Because if Trump ever did intend to do anything about immigration and the border (and he was probably being dishonest about immigration), he intended to wait until after he no longer had the House of Representatives to make it a big deal so that he would be blocked and could make it a re-election issue.

Because he thinks Americans are tools.  By my calculations the only good thing we’ve gotten from Trump is Neil Gorsuch.

The Real Immigration Problem

BY Herschel Smith
3 months, 2 weeks ago

ICE had to simply drop off newly minted immigrants to a bus stop.

Immigration officials dropped off about 50 more undocumented migrants, mostly from Central America, Friday morning at a Greyhound bus station near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, where they were left to fend for themselves as overwhelmed volunteers sought help for them.

[ … ]

Since Dec. 21, according to the data, ICE has released 84,500 migrant family members. Of that, 14,500 have been released in the Phoenix area, 37,500 have been released in communities in south Texas, 24,000 in El Paso and 8,500 in San Diego, the data shows.

They just let them go.  Cheer up.  We can all pay their medical bills when they go to the local hospital ER for care.

But the real problem isn’t even illegal immigration, it’s legal immigration (via WRSA):

The legal immigration problem has dropped off America’s radar screen—displaced by the undeniable crisis over illegals.

But legal immigration is larger, growing faster, potentially more disruptive—and, because it is set by inflexible statute, just as much out of control.

Go check out all of his data.  From the most recent NumbersUSA newsletter, Trump isn’t helping anything with his actions or rhetoric.

The problem is that President Trump appears be backing off his campaign pledge in favor of placating the business lobby clamoring for an increase in foreign workers.

The White House goes on to describe the meeting with “some of the country’s top CEO –including Apple’s Tim Cook and Walmart’s Doug McMillon.”

Employers were coming to us and they were saying, ‘We’re optimistic about America, we want to invest here and a constraint for growth is the lack of a skilled workforce,'” Ms. Trump told The Wall Street Journal this week. “We don’t have people to fill the jobs.

The President has strongly indicated he no longer supports immigration reduction, including at the White House meeting this week.

‘We want to have a very strong border, but we want to have a lot of people coming in,’ Trump said during a White House meeting with more than 20 CEOs and officials from state and local governments.’ A lot of people don’t understand that. They think we’re shutting it out. We’re not shutting it out. We want people to come in, but they have to come in through a process.

President Trump’s rhetoric is not far removed from U.S. Chamber of Commerce president Tom Donahue, who said last October that “The United States is fundamentally out of people.”

When there are still 50 million people in the United States between the ages of 18 and 64 who are not employed, the problem is not a lack of workers.

The problem of course is that the democrats want Latinos for their votes, and republican elitists and corporations want them for their cheap labor, cheap that is, as long as the law, regulations and codes are in place to let everyone else pay for their medical care so the corporations don’t have to.  The cost isn’t so much hidden or non-existent as it is borne on the backs of American workers who can’t save or invest because of this corporate theft.

So in addition to Trump making half a million bump stock owners felons with the stroke of a pen, in addition to his support for red flag laws (which after Lindsey Graham and the democrats send to him he will sign on a federal level), he wants to flood the country with more foreign workers for you to support, just as long as it’s all legal.

Or in other words, America may as well have elected a democrat, huh?  Oh, and by the way, don’t worry about how all of those Latinos are going to vote in the presidential elections.  I’m sure it’ll all work out to support your 2A rights.

Border Town Residents Fear Cartel Retaliation For Reporting Criminal Illegal Alien Activity

BY Herschel Smith
4 months, 2 weeks ago

Via WiscoDave, Iotwreport.com:

Americans in border towns in New Mexico are leery of reporting crimes and suspicious activities by illegal immigrants because they fear they will be retaliated against by drug cartels, according to a  Washington Examiner report.

Seven residents who live within 30 to 50 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border told the paper that calling local or federal law enforcement for help after discovering they have been victims of illegal immigrant crime could lead to “nasty consequences.”

One cattle rancher from Hidalgo County told the Examiner he calls in every crime, but not without punishment from the cartels.

“I turned in 700 pounds [of marijuana] up here … I called it in [to Border Patrol]. They went and got it. That night, they [smugglers] came back. They … broke off all the floats off my troughs — chopped ’em up, drained all of it,” he said.

Brave rancher.  But most people won’t be that brave, nor do they have the wherewithal to engage in battle with the cartel(s).

Here is the step-by-step process for the destruction of a country and culture.

[1] Corrupt enough powerful people with money and power – money for powerful corporations like Monsanto, or Archer Daniels Midland, who want immigrant workers, or even for smaller entities like local roofing and siding companies, and power for the democrats who want voters.

[2] Convince enough idiot voters that the immigrants just “come for love” and appeal to compassion.

[3] Underfund border security, and in any event, make it nearly impossible for them to perform their mission.

[4] Get enough lawyers involved that no one could ever successfully craft rules for the use of force or rules of engagement (RUF/ROE) for the border that would make the international community happy.

[5] Never, ever, send the military to the border under arming orders.  Let them do things like paperwork (and maybe string some wire) for looks and theater.

[6] Corrupt the churches so they teach that Jesus was a Bohemian, pacifist, flowerchild beatnik, and you will be too if you want to be a Christian.  No real Christian can be a warrior, at least not unless recognized by the state.

[7] Weaken the armed forces so that if they ever do deploy to the border, they won’t be fit to serve in any meaningful capacity anyway.

[8] Make sure that the police and judiciary are essentially one and the same, on the same side as it were, and make sure that the public is scared of ever taking any kind of action they deem illegal or vigilante.  Make the cost too high for them to bear to defend themselves or their property.

[9] Allow the criminal elements of the hordes to roam freely and perpetrate their desires at will.  This is advantageous for the controllers, as it keeps the fearful people in check and without recourse.  They cannot turn to each other, cannot turn to the state, and cannot turn to the criminals.  And they won’t act for themselves.

[10] Make the promise of provision of “free” health care for everyone who crosses the border, illegal or not.  This “free” health care hides the real cost of illegal immigration, but it’s advantageous to the corporations, so it must come to pass.

[11] Finally, invade the schools from elementary to college with socialists who do not believe in liberty, and this will ensure a vast supply of idiots as future voters, thus creating power in perpetuity.  These voters will never allow turning this death spiral around.

And thus you have a recipe for utter disaster for a nation.  It’s almost as if it were happening before our very eyes, yes?

Border Rancher: “We’ve Found Prayer Rugs Out Here”

BY Herschel Smith
5 months, 1 week ago

Washington Examiner:

Ranchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by cartels who move the individuals.

The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the Muslim faith kneel on as they worship.

“There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico,” the rancher said. “People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s what’s really scary. You don’t know what’s coming across. We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal. It’s not just Mexican nationals that are coming across.”

[ … ]

Border Patrol and its parent agency, Customs and Border Protection, did not respond to multiple interview requests. But CBP’s Arizona region issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday that said agents had arrested people from across the world over the past five days.

Did you catch the bolded part? (Bold mine).

But doesn’t it all make you feel warm inside knowing that they “Come for love?”  David Codrea has related thoughts, surely correct.

On a related note, the Middle East Forum sent a note out saying this.

The Middle East Forum has learned that New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy will conduct a State of the State town hall event at the Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPC) in northern New Jersey tonight—a mosque with a long history of pro-Hamas leadership.

The ICPC’s current imam, Mohammad Qatanani, has terrorist connections galore: His own lawyer admits that he was a member of the student chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan, and the N.J. Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness identifies Qatanani as a Hamas supporter. Qatanani is currently fighting deportation on the grounds that he lied to federal officials about his Israeli conviction for membership Hamas.

This is the man who recently signed six gun control bills into law.  He’s willing to buddy-up with terrorists, but he wants to disarm peaceable men and women.

NRA Does Immigration?

They finally admit it?  My response: you’re a little late to the game, pal.  There is one minute to go in the fourth quarter and we’re down 44-16.

If I didn’t know better I’d swear this is just another stunt for fund-raising.
