Why come to America

Why come to America if they don’t want to be Americans?

By Jeffrey A. Friedberg
———————————————

“They” are preciously called “immigrants,” “refugees,” “migrants,” “undocumented Americans,” and other pathetic-sounding names tailored to wrench our hearts – we purportedly cruel, unsympathetic, inhuman Americans.

Luxuriating here, behind our walls of wealth, abundance, and security, we deny them our (stolen) largesse and close up our fat-wracked arms to these noble, sacred, starving, uneducated, illiterate, diseased, violent, and socialist masses from “third-world,” countries.

Who are these Mexicans, Africans, South Americans, Asians, and others whose feet Nancy Pelosi has washed and the pope kissed?  What is it these luminaries see that we do not?  We – reputedly the most selfish, evil, detestable creatures on Earth?

Breitbart:

About 58 percent, or nearly 6-in-10 refugees have “below basic” English skills after living in the U.S. for five years. These unassimilated refugees are sometimes described as “functionally illiterate[.]” …

Since 2008, as Breitbart News reported, the U.S. [with the “help” of “religious” and civilian “immigrant” organizations raking in billions of dollars] has permanently resettled more than 1.7 million foreign nationals and refugees through a variety of humanitarian programs like the Special Immigrant Juveniles, and the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act.

The majority, about 56 percent, of refugee households between 2011 and 2015 were on food stamps, a welfare service that is subsidized by the American taxpayer.

Nearly 30 percent of refugees received cash welfare of some sort between 2011 and 2015, while 34 percent of refugees 18-years-old or older said they had no health insurance.

Of the refugees who said they did have health insurance, about 50 percent said they were either on Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance, both of which are taxpayer-funded.

Based upon commonsense analysis of the presented facts, it seems some of these “folks” do not come here to actually be Americans.  It seems they do not want to be “assimilated” or to learn English.  Or work.  Or be responsible for their own finances, or for any employable future.

If you come to another country, but you have no dream to become one with it – and you express hatred and anger for your host while praising and promoting your own country and vengefully flying its flag, and you say out loud that you want to vanquish and control the host – then you are a foreign invader.  A conquering army.

When the Italians, Irish, Jews, and others came to America around the beginning of the 20th century – escaping the Old World, imbued with genuine desire to become 100% American – they had to stop at Ellis Island, the federal immigration station, isolated on 27.5 acres in the Upper New York Bay.

These people, including my own Jewish ancestors, came to America at the turn of the 20th century to escape actual ethnic cleansing of the Pogroms, or mass murders – poverty and suppression – and to fulfill a dream of becoming Americans.  They didn’t “protest,” march, or fly the flags of their home countries.  They learned English, entered or created American jobs, and became financially and societally successful.

There was no American welfare state.  There were no “freebie” benefits as there are now, a hundred years later.

These immigrants of the early 20th century came to America to be free, to stand individually, to provide for their families, to create, and to become 100% Americans.

There is precedent here.  There is ancestral experience and assimilation in America here. There are those who know what it means to be an immigrant and escape to a better world in America.

The American Dream has never been one of living on welfare or benefits while maintaining and promoting your own “culture,” language, religion, and laws.  It’s not about being a Mexican or an African or any other nationality.

America is about being American.

It’s the same in any country.  You don’t go to Mexico or Saudi Arabia or Zimbabwe, and fly the American flag and declare you’re there to take over.  You would probably be arrested or killed in those countries.

In America, you are protected by law.  You are an American.

If you are a real, legal immigrant, and not an invader – you came here for truth, justice, and the American way.

If you came here but don’t want to be an American, or you want to eradicate America and be in control through ethnicity, religion, or foreign law – go home.  Or go somewhere else.

Obama’s CIA debacle

Botched CIA Communications System Helped Blow Cover of Chinese Agents

The number of informants executed in the debacle is higher than initially thought.

It was considered one of the CIA’s worst failures in decades: Over a two-year period starting in late 2010, Chinese authorities systematically dismantled the agency’s network of agents across the country, executing dozens of suspected U.S. spies. But since then, a question has loomed over the entire debacle.

How were the Chinese able to roll up the network?

Now, nearly eight years later, it appears that the agency botched the communication system it used to interact with its sources, according to five current and former intelligence officials. The CIA had imported the system from its Middle East operations, where the online environment was considerably less hazardous, and apparently underestimated China’s ability to penetrate it. …

‘White Whores’: Islam’s Unwavering View on Western Women

In this Sept. 4, 2017 file photo, a paper heart reading “Dear Maria, we will never forget you” is hanging near the site of the crime at the Dreisam river in Freiburg, Germany.

A British woman going by the pseudonym “Kate Elysia” recently revealed the extent of her sexual victimization by Muslim men. While this included the usual — including drugs, and gang-rapes by as many as 70 men — her story had an interesting twist to it.

According to the report: “[A]t one point during her abuse, she was trafficked to the North African country of Morocco where she was prostituted and repeatedly raped.” There she was kept in an apartment in Marrakesh, where another girl no more than 15 was also kept for sexual purposes. “I can’t remember how many times I’m raped that [first] night, or by who,” Kate recounted.

That she was seen as a piece of meat is evident in other ways: “The Pakistani men I came into contact with made me believe I was nothing more than a slut, a white whore. They treated me like a leper, apart from when they wanted sex. I was less than human to them, I was rubbish.”

What explains the ongoing victimization of European women by Muslim men — which exists well beyond the UK, and has become epidemic in Germany, Sweden, and elsewhere?

The Bad Times

Let the Bad Times Roll

By Jeffrey Folks
—————————————

The left is hoping for bad times, and soon.

If not this fall, then before the 2020 presidential election.  They would rather see harm done to America than see Trump succeed.  A market crash, a war in Asia or the Middle East, another terrorist attack – it doesn’t matter.  Just something to deny conservatives a victory.  That’s how warped the left has become.

Conservatives did not go around praying for a market crash during the Obama years, but a lot of liberal commentators seem to be doing just that today.  The August issue of Fortune (a member of the liberal Time, Inc. group of publications) has red ink splattered across its cover proclaiming, “The End Is Near.”

Interesting timing, just three months from the November election.  Inside, there was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews arguing that Wall Street has “fallen out of love with Trump.”  The thesis of Matthews’s piece is that the president has done everything wrong and nothing right.  He has enacted tariffs, lowered taxes and regulations, spurred growth, and put Americans back to work.  Bad?  Yes, bad for Wall Street.

Not to be outdone, a longer piece by Fortune editor Geoff Colvin purports to demonstrate, in nine pages of small print with eight detailed graphs, that the bull market of the last nine years is ending and that the reason is partly, or largely, Trump.  It should be obvious that this bull market, like every other, will end at some point.  It is not so obvious that it will end soon, though it may.  To me, it is not obvious that it is “Trump’s fault.”  Indeed, the fact that it has not ended is “Trump’s fault.”

Yes, the economy is heating up, typical of late-stage bull markets.  As Colvin admits, “the timing of the business cycle is never easy to predict.”  But somehow Colvin suggests that a great economy is bad news, and, again, it’s “Trump’s fault.”  So Trump has created millions of jobs and raised wages significantly for the first time since the Bush years, which has driven the market to new highs – but that’s a bad thing.  Huh?

Then there’s the familiar matter of the yield curve.  It’s true that inversion, when short-term rates rise above long-term rates, has always preceded recession, but, as Colvin again admits, we’re not there yet.  In fact, since 1980, current levels of tightening have never signaled a recession.  We would have to tighten further for the “always” to be true, and even then, tightening normally occurs months if not years before the recession begins.

This time is different, says Fortune.  Trump is waging a trade war and an immigrant-hostile policy (really? I thought he favored legal immigration) and causing oil prices to rise.  (Haven’t his policies expanded American oil production to record levels?  Doesn’t that lower what prices would otherwise have been?)

What’s obvious is that Trump’s policies are driving growth and that growth may continue for years.  That, by the way, is the prediction of the World Bank, which Fortune fails to cite.  According to the World Bank Global Forecast, global economic growth will reach 3.1% in 2018 and “ease slightly in 2019-2020.”  The End Is Near?

The liberal elite hate Trump’s notion that America’s best days are still ahead.  They would have you believe that the days of 3% growth ended in 1970, and nothing can bring them back, especially Donald Trump.  The “new normal,” as they used to say in the slow-growth Obama era, is 2%.  America is not what it used to be, and nothing can change that, even Trump’s tax cuts and increased military spending, whose economic effect “could be ‘as small as zero.'”  When the stimulus no longer works, “you run out of gas…or crash.”

The left has been throwing that word around a lot lately.  A “crash” ahead, just ahead of this year’s congressional elections or the presidential election in 2020.  Oh, how wonderful, even though it would harm nearly every American.  What counts is restoring the left’s control over ordinary Americans, taking away their rights, destroying their liberty.

Bad times ahead.  The end is near.  Take the federal deficit and the high debt load of corporations.  Admittedly, both are excessive, but the way out is growth, not socialism.

And the low unemployment rate.  Yes, for the left, low unemployment, which would seem to be good, is actually bad.  Anything to deny Trump a victory.

Fortune pulls out all the usual suspects to bolster its case of doom and gloom.  There’s Ben Bernanke, Robert Schiller, Jeremy Grantham, and Robert Gordon, a Northwestern University economist.  (According to Schiller, “[i]t’s kind of like we’re in 1928 at the moment.”)  The problem with this lineup of all-star economists, as Colvin admits, is that economists as a class have been wrong every time since 1970 if not forever – wrong predicting the beginning of recessions and wrong predicting the end.  So why quote them, especially those who may not exactly be Trump fans, in the article?

This is not to say that Fortune is wrong.  Eventually, a bear market will occur, probably sooner rather than later.  We just don’t know when.  The current bull market, if it continues, will soon be the longest in history, and this in itself is reason to be cautious.  Bull markets end with a 20-percent-plus correction.  This bull market will end, probably before the end of Trump’s second term.  The problem is that too many liberal economists seem to be wishing it will end sooner.

Wishing for a bear market and an economic recession that puts millions of Americans out of work does not seem like a good thing to me.  To wish for a recession, war, or cataclysm of some kind just to get Trump out of office is a callous and cynical thing to do, but it’s now standard practice on the left.  Why not hope for the best, instead, and then judge the president on his merits?

The reason is that getting rid of Trump and what he stands for – the restoration of democracy in America – is now the overriding goal of the left.  Anything that will bring Trump down, from Stormy Daniels to global war, is good news to the left, even if millions suffer or millions die.  That is how far they have gone in the interest of restoring the authoritarian power of the Deep State.  That is how much they despise the deplorables.

It goes way beyond Fortune magazine.  Every liberal venue, from CNN to the Huffington Post, is stocked with arguments as to why the end is near, and they seem to be licking their chops over it.

The media are bad, but Democrat politicians are worse.  Within seconds of any positive news on the economy, Cheerless Chuck is out with reasons why it’s not true or won’t last.  Hillary Clinton (still on her worldwide “bash Trump” tour), wacky Nancy, fibbing Pocahontas, and Red Alexandria – the message is the same.  Trump is ignorant, incompetent, racist, sexist, and a bully – how could you expect anything he does to work?

The truth is that wishing for your opponent to fail, albeit at terrible harm to the American people, won’t contribute anything to the possibility of its happening.  The market is driven by forces so complex that no one, not even Warren Buffett, has been able to predict its movements.  But predicting a crash, a terrorist attack, or another calamity is not just impossible; it is despicable.

Have we gone so far that the left would now sacrifice the lives of millions just to regain political power?  I fear that we have.

Clinton name is starting to stink

Among Democrats, the Clinton name is starting to stink

By Monica Showalter
—————————————–

You’d think this would be catbird-seat time for Bill Clinton.

His ideological style of Democrats – the moderates – are winning primaries and special elections these days in Congress.  And unlike President Obama, Clinton and his presidency are remembered for prosperity, including all the jobs that were created.  Theoretically, that’s something Democrats should be able to point to with pride, given all the embarrassment the Obama record presents in stark contrast to President Trump.

Somehow, that’s not happening.

Democrats are moving away from Bill Clinton like a bad smell.  In New Hampshire, which up until now has been one of Clinton’s strongest states, a name inextricably linked to some of Clinton’s strongest political successes, as the Boston Globe notes, grassroots Democrats have yanked Clinton’s name from the masthead of a big Democratic Party fundraiser, changing the whole thing to the hoary name of Eleanor Roosevelt.

According to the Globe:

New Hampshire was the state that made Bill Clinton the comeback kid in 1992, propelling him to the presidency.  Sixteen years later, Hillary Clinton won the state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary in an upset.

And two years ago, in honor of the former president’s legacy, the New Hampshire Democratic Party became the only state party the country to name a major fund-raising dinner after Bill Clinton.

But on Tuesday, New Hampshire Democrats reversed course and announced they had voted to walk away from the Clinton name for the annual fall fete.  The event once known as the Kennedy-Clinton dinner, which Bill Clinton headlined as recently as 2014, will now be called the Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner.

For all these decades, the name had been fine with them.  But now…

It’s a fall that coincides with Democratic Party operatives’ efforts to separate themselves from Hillary Clinton, who’s been a millstone around their neck lately, and who they’ve repeatedly said they wish would just go away.

Turns out they don’t want “the big he” around, either.  That’s a loss of clout.

Maybe that’s a cumulative thing, given that from the Democrats’ point of view, as I noted here, the Clintons have selfishly drained Democratic funds away from the central mission of electing candidates toward themselves, rigged the Democratic primaries in Hillary Clinton’s favor, and made themselves a public relations liability for Democrats through Hillary’s continuous expressed disdain for the electorate.  They aren’t exactly a good thing for Democrats as they seek to rebuild from the rubble of Obamadom.

Bill makes things even worse by being synonymous with straight-up corruption, managing that even out of office – and all you have to do is yell “Haiti” to remember it.  Bill Clinton was on the money end of Hillary Clinton’s sale of access to the State Department through the Clinton Foundation, and that’s just a coda to all the Clinton presidential-era scandals with Chinese campaign money, which we are still feeling the effects of today as China builds up its military.  Clinton also was the one who sold stays in the Lincoln bedroom.

And maybe even more important for Democrats, the #MeToo movement has brought new attention to Clinton’s Dionysian side, not just in the form of Monica Lewinsky, or the innocent women such as Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick, whom he harassed and raped, with Hillary at his side as his enabler.  There’s the Bill of today who seems to be continuing the same old party in his pants, what with his “Lolita Express” trips to the Dominican Republic with a guy convicted of pedophilia and his Arkansas cathouse lifestyle away from Hillary.  Ew.

That makes his good-economy legacy a distant memory, and the Democrats who are following his pattern of getting a foot in by playing moderate just as eager to distance themselves from him as the radicals.

Now they’re taking his name off a big fundraising dinner in New Hampshire in favor of Eleanor Roosevelt, the ghost Hillary Clinton used to “commune” with, just as Joe Stalin would remove the faces of those he purged from photographs.  That has got to sting.

It’s tough being Bill Clinton, wanting to be corrupt yet also wanting to be popular.  At a time when he should be making his comeback, like an oily Hollywood talk show host, he’s actually on the outs with Democrats and watching his name being erased from the monuments.

Knowing how the Clintons operate, and knowing how they never intend to go away, one can safely conclude that they aren’t going to let this stand.  There will be payback to the Democrats for this, and the Clintons will make it miserable.  For Republicans, all we have to do is have some popcorn ready.

Trump-Russia case

How a senior DOJ official helped Dem researchers on Trump-Russia case

By John Solomon

Hundreds of pages of previously unreported emails and memos provide the clearest evidence yet that a research firm, hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to find dirt on and defeat Donald Trump, worked early and often with the FBI, a Department of Justice (DOJ) official and the intelligence community during the 2016 presidential election and the early days of Trump’s presidency.

Fusion GPS’s work and its involvement with several FBI officials have been well reported.

But a close review of these new documents shows just how closely Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who reported to Obama-era Deputy AG Sally Yates, maintained contact with Fusion — and, in particular, its primary source, former British spy Christopher Steele — before, during and after the election.

Yates was fired by President Trump over an unrelated political dispute. Ohr was demoted recently.

Ohr’s own notes, emails and text messages show he communicated extensively with Steele and with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. Those documents have been turned over in recent weeks to investigative bodies in Congress and the DOJ, but not reviewed outside the investigative ranks until now.

They show Ohr had contact with Steele in the days just before the FBI opened its Trump-Russia probe in summer 2016, and then engaged Steele as a “confidential human source” (CHS) assisting in that probe.

They also confirm that Ohr later became a critical conduit of continuing information from Steele after the FBI ended the Brit’s role as an informant. …

Hold Democrats responsible

It’s time to hold Democrats responsible for Chicago’s violence

By Monica Showalter
—————————————–

Most Americans are appalled to read that 63 people were shot in Chicago over the weekend, with 10 fatalities.  The numbers are huge, downright massacre-level.  News coverage says Chicago’s hospital and emergency rooms are now crowd scenes.  Here in California, we are appalled at the death toll among firemen and other public workers in California’s massive wildfires, brought about by eco-wackos and their environmental mismanagement, which have killed 7.  In Chicago, seven dead would be a good day.

What’s going on?  All of these attacks are gang-related, according to this report, and are happening in the 6th, 10th, and 11th Districts, all led by Democrats.  What a massive sludge of corruption and thuggery rests behind that.

Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit has retweeted an invaluable article from the January 2012 issue of Chicago magazine about how the city’s famed violence is all the result of gangs and Democrats being in bed with each other, one hand washing the other, and in those very districts named above.  Democratic politicians sidle up to gang leaders for votes and use their thugs as substitutes for their political organizations.  They muscle voters to the polls for the Democrats, and anyone who rebels gets a beating.  Gang leaders in turn make demands of politicians for protection from police and get flows of city funds from these same Democrats, generally as city subcontractors, calling it “jobs for youth” and “second chances” or something.  The left benefits, so it gives the gangs what they want.

Is this a revolting picture?  Obviously, with the stepped up shootings, the Democrats don’t seem to be worrying too much, given that they have the votes and deals they want, so word is out that they aren’t going to do anything.  Meanwhile, the cops have been ordered to stand down because of the political ties of the gangs, and word has gotten out about that, too.  Now the gangs are challenging each other because Democrats have made the power so easy to get.

When is someone going to say something about how the Democrats have created this gang-hell bacchanal of murder, unknown in few places outside Caracas?  This is Democrats’ doing, based on that 2012 report, because Chicago’s politicians are in bed with Chicago’s gangs.  It’s also a worthy topic for a class-action lawsuit, for one.  More important, it’s got to become a campaign issue, not just in Chicago, but everywhere.  Hold them accountable.  Democrats have made their deals with gangs, and this is what has become of the city.
