Ain’t got No Sugar.

(For David… regarding the idea that Socialism, referencing his question of my sanity on Trump’s China Tariffs, requires Capitalism to survive.  While the current topic involves raw materials the concept is the same.  Crappy Communist/Socialist countries require us, and our productivity, to exist.  They are parasitic.  This originally posted in Feb. 2012)

Given the latest comments by European Leaders at the G20 conference regarding their current difficulties having originated in the U.S. and President Obama’s granting amnesty to illegal aliens  with accolades from the Mexican President (because it is a huge subsidy to Mexico through the flow of US Dollars south), I thought it was worth revisiting.

It has been fascinating to watch as Europe melts down.

It illustrates a theory I’ve had for many years which is that socialists survive at the mercy of capitalists in the name of stability. I started thinking about this in the early nineties,  Clinton had just handed, yes handed, Mexico 5 billion dollars.  That was back when 5 billion could buy you something nice.  It was done under the auspices of fighting the war on drugs.  But what it really did was prop up a socialist state.  Who wants a revolution so close to home… right? I don’t mean to pick on Clinton because Reagan and Bush have done it too.

Reagan’s granting amnesty to 13 million illegal immigrants was another way of subsidizing Mexico as it kept the flow of U.S. Dollars heading south into their economy.  (We could see this again…)  George W. did it by making it illegal to purchase prescription medication from Canada.  If that had been made legal it would have been tantamount to declaring war on Canada because it would have destroyed their health system by preventing them from dictating prices they would pay to the drug companies.  To put it in the simplest terms, they get away with dictating prices because you pay more here and subsidize the cost for them.  Feel good about that? We have seen this type of socialist subsidizing for years across every administration.  It is primarily through our military… “You guys in trouble financially?”,  “Let’s have joint maneuvers, or how about we move some more troops in for training exercises…”.  All that means is U.S. Dollars going in to the their not-so-self-sufficient Socialist Paradise.

We have also seen this played out when military contracts are steered to foreign countries for no apparent benefit.  The product isn’t better, but darn it they need the help.  (Bare in mind, I am a capitalist… it is my duty to buy the best product for me at the lowest price.  I have no issue with overseas manufacturing.  Our lack of manufacturing says more about us than them.  That’s for another time.) Well, now things have changed…  we ain’t got no money.

Look at the panic and finger-pointing when the engine of Capitalism, slowly poisoned by Socialists, isn’t healthy enough to ride in and save the Socialist Dream.

If I sound merciless, it’s because I am.  As far as I’m concerned Socialism has been living on borrowed time.  (And it has been our own socialists lending it to them.)  To steal a quote; “The chickenssss have come hoooome to roooost!” Now big daddy ain’t got no sugar…. and you’re on your own.

(An aside:  When are we going to have emergency hearings on “home-grown Socialism”?  Does Homeland Security know about this?  Where’s the Socialist Watch List?  The Socialist No-Fly roster?  Can’t we profile these people?  The destruction to this country and its citizens is profound. Someone should alert the press.)

I’m Getting Ready for a Day without Immigrants…

…and I need your help.

Today is Sunday Feb. 19, 2017. We are all about to learn a very valuable lesson.  I am, as you should be too, preparing for the Catastrophic upcoming “Day Without Immigrants” and have spent all morning creating a list of essentials such as food, gold, dehydrated water, duct tape, plastic bags, zip ties, shovel… etc. What else do I need?

This is urgent!

The Entire United States will be shut down.  Apocalyptic would be an understated adjective.  Riots and Looting should be expected.  The economic damage alone will be profound.

Please let me know what else you think I need to survive in the comments…

Huge Thanks in advance,
Mike


Beyond Borders

Okay Libertarians… apparently we need to get something straight.

I’m annoyed that I have to talk about this with people whom I consider ideological compatriots. The only thing I can think of is Leftists have invaded the Libertarian Party. Maybe you all should consider some borders?

Anyway… on to what you should already know;

Ideologically, Us Libertarians Love the concept of ‘Open Borders’. Judging by the latest rhetoric from ‘leader’ of the Libertarian Party it appears Libertarians are all in agreement, to a point. It happens to be a very pointy point. A Sharp Pointy, Pointy Point. A Point best not fallen upon.

There can be no Libertarian type ‘Open Borders’ so long as there’s a Welfare State… ‘Safety Net’… or whatever Socialists want to call it to make the redistribution of wealth less offensive. Welcome to the United States of America.

So STFU.

First You permanently get rid of the Welfare State and then, and only then, can we talk about ‘Open Borders’.

Idiots.


Praying for Pragmatism

In every post-election interview the Leftists have been groping for Pragmatism.
They are Praying that Donald Trump is not an Ideologue, like President Obama, and will compromise with them on all policy decisions… until they can regain some power in the house, senate or both, two years from now.

You can smell the fear.

The Fear is not that Trump is coming for your children, gay, straight, hispanic, latino, black, asian, Irish, even the French etc.

The Fear is that Trump might actually put in place solutions regarding Immigration.

That’s it.

Just Immigration.

The Socialists in our country are afraid that he will indeed build a wall, fence, moat… whatever… and then move to the really scary part. They Fear he will create a work visa program which makes it easy, and legal, for our neighbors to the North and South of us to come here and work if they choose to. The Democrats realize that once legitimized in such a fashion these workers would no longer be paying Social Security under stolen Social Security Numbers… they would no longer be in the shadows… and most importantly, They would no longer be able to offer up the ridiculous argument that They should have the right to vote. And, if they do desire to become a citizen of the United States the debate now moves on to our actual immigration policies… That We Already Have… and don’t enforce. No more “They’re going to deport my Grandma!” Hogwash.

Whoa!

Adding insult to injury it would now fall upon the left to remove this work privilege from our neighbors if they ever want to save the Socialist Voting base for generations to come.

I dream of a number of things, but foremost is I dream of a wonderful explosion in private charities making available such things as education to ‘ex-pat Canadians and Mexicans’ who reside here for work. (If Mark Zuckerburg wants to fill Facebook full of brilliant Mexicans and Canadians… awesome!)  I dream of an explosion of hard-working, genuinely terrific, people coming here from Mexico and Canada to make some money and help support their families abroad. I dream the United States will not only benefit from this new influx of workers, but those workers will benefit from enjoying the bounty provided by American Exceptionalism and begin wondering why their respective home countries don’t embrace Free Market Capitalism as Governing Theory.

However…

I predict that the Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, will become Mr. Filibuster in the Senate… because the Liberal Leftists cannot afford for any of this to happen.

I also predict the Democrat Party will be the party of “No!” to all things.

It is going to be an interesting 4-years… possibly 8.


Why do those Escaping the Evils of Socialism….

…want to turn the place they escape to into what they escaped from?

 

While I happen to agree with the Fascism charge… is it ‘racist’ to disagree with the Oppression, Despair, Destruction and Death directly tied to the ideology of Socialism?

No, it is not.


You Must be Forced to Care.

(Originally posted 091914.  But now that we’ve graduated from Enterovirus to Measles… decided to revisit.)

There are Diseases in The World which Progressives believe have been left unaddressed by the Major World Powers.

The thinking goes that we, Lazy-Stupid-Spoiled Western Masses, simply don’t care if it doesn’t effect us. You can find evidence of this mindset within the fight against AIDS as well as other life threatening diseases…. Like Ebola.

And certain others such as the Enterovirus.

So how might a World Power (The United States) be motivated to address those sicknesses that have been Intentionally Ignored?

Import them.

Yes, that’s what I said…

Bring them here so We can experience them…  Some of us Die from them…  And All of us Fear them.

The contingency that subscribes to the idea we are ‘all citizens of the world’ is not beyond bringing sickness to our shores if it means we will devote our resources to fighting the illness’ we previously ignored.  In their mind, focusing on our own Problems First, while spending Energy on the Worlds Problems Second, is what makes America Terrible.  And they have anointed themselves ‘Enlightened’ Apostles of all that is Good and Just.  The Ends Justify the Means…

This leaves only one question.

How do you bring them here?

Simple.

Allow hundreds of thousands of people into the country without medical screening… all at once.  (All at once of course can mean over a period of a year or so when it comes to the grand scheme of things.)  Then disperse them at taxpayer expense throughout the country.

‘But this would never happen!’ you say…  I know you… and I know you’re saying it.

Well it’s happening, right now, as I tap this out.

The only real question left to the Left is ‘How do you make these new illnesses spread fast enough to completely refocus the National Energy onto defeating them?’

Make the people you let in be Childrenunaccompanied and unsupervised… then send them all over the country and Force our public school system to absorb Them.

‘But Who, In Their Right Mind, would do this?!’ you ask…  I also know you’re asking that…

Good Question.  Who Would do this?

Because whoever it is, is doing it right now.

And those who enable the doing will tell you it’s only ‘fair’ that we devote our abilities to helping those We chose not to help in the past.  Whether we like the outcome of doing so or not.

It’s for the Greater Good of All the Citizens of the World.

Sleep Well.

 

(Note: What better way to foment a Cry for Government Run Health Care, and Government Force, than a good old-fashioned Pandemic?  When it comes to the life of a child…)


So… is Reality Optional?

Apparently it is, if you’re Chuck Todd and NBC.

‘No Comment’: NBC Covers Up Evidence of Immigration Crime Wave

by Julia Hahn 20 Jul 2015

Washington D.C.

(Full Article, with links, at Breitbart News accessible by clicking link above.)

Tomorrow, the Judiciary Committee will hear testimony from Americans who lost loved ones to criminal alien violence. On Sunday’s Meet The Press, Chuck Todd made a declaration that would surprise these devastated families: “We couldn’t find a single study that links violent crime and immigration.”

Apparently neither Mr. Todd nor his research staff ever thought to look up the government’s own 2011 report on criminal alien activity, published by the Government Accountability Office.

Breitbart News emailed Mr. Todd and his show to ask why the government’s own data, and a great deal more information, which would have dis-proven Mr. Todd’s sweeping declaration, was omitted. A staff aid to Mr. Todd replied: “no comment.”

The 2011 U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) report documents crimes committed by foreign alien nationals inside the United States. It counts as an alien any immigrant who has not been “naturalized” – that is, any alien who has applied for and been conferred with citizenship after being brought into the United States from their home country. Therefore, even this report would not include the criminal offenses of the millions of immigrants inside the U.S. who have converted their green cards into citizenship papers, about 19.3 million. So, for instance, the elder Boston Bomber, the recent Chattanooga Shooter, and other immigrant terrorists naturalized by the federal government would be counted by the government as citizen crimes, not alien crimes.

The report tallies approximately 3 million arrest offenses attached to the incarcerated criminal alien population. Of these offenses, half a million were drug related, 70,000 were sexual offenses, 213,000 were for assault, 125,000 were for larceny/theft, and 25,000 were for homicides. Based on the GAO’s sample of criminal aliens, they estimated that their study population of 249,000 criminal aliens was arrested about 1.7 million times, averaging about 7 arrests per criminal alien.

By definition, not one of these crimes would have occurred absent the immigrant who committed it – in other words, without admitting these individuals, there would have been at least 70,000 fewer sexual assaults, 25,000 fewer slayings, 125,000 fewer robberies, and so forth.

According to the GAO report, just looking at the federal prison population, of 51,000 criminal aliens incarcerated in federal prison in December 2010, 68 percent were citizens of Mexico, and almost 90 percent were from one of seven Latin American countries: Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic. Mr. Todd and his research staff apparently also did not see the recent U.S. Sentencing Commission data that showed that although illegal aliens only account for 3.5 percent of the U.S. population, they accounted for 36.7 percent of federal sentences in Fiscal Year 2014.

Mr. Todd and his research staff were also apparently not aware that, in 2009, 57 percent of the 76 fugitive murderers most wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) were foreign-born (either illegal aliens or aliens given visas).

Perhaps even more shocking, but not mentioned by Mr. Todd or his staff, is that although six times more U.S. residents are U.S.-born than foreign-born, foreign-born are responsible for four-times more terrorism convictions. Or, put another way, 13.5% of the population is responsible for 64% of terrorism convictions. The vast majority of the foreign-born present in the United States are granted entrance as part of our nation’s historic dispensation of millions of visas to foreign workers, their families, and lifetime immigrants seeking permanent settlement inside the United States.

However, even these statistics documenting the relationship between terror convictions and the foreign-born population undercounts the affect of immigration on terrorism because the children of immigrants charged with terrorism — who would not be in the United States but for immigration — would count as native crimes. Additionally, these statistics do not account for the role of immigrants responsible for radicalizing “homegrown” jihadis; consider, for instance, that the Islamic Society of Boston — a mosque whose terror network has been well-documented and evidenced in attacks ranging from the Boston bombing to the last year’s Oklahoma beheading — was founded by immigrants.

Moreover, Mr. Todd and his research staff were apparently also not familiar with the acclaimed work of Manhattan Institute Scholar Heather Mac Donald, who has published extensively on this topic. In an exclusive quote to Breitbart News, Mac Donald observes:

What’s telling is that there’s not a single amnesty proposal that has ever required a clean criminal record from the targets of amnesty. [Amnesty advocates] inevitably wink at two misdemeanor convictions– and to get a misdemeanor condition you have to work pretty hard in your criminal offending. That’s an acknowledgement on the part of advocates that they’re not dealing with a completely crime free population, otherwise it should be no sweat to require a clean criminal record.

The media also relies on some confused data sets when discussing alien versus native crime rates. For instance, studies cited by the media consider all crimes committed by the children of illegal aliens to be native crimes — not foreign crimes. The same goes with all aliens in general: their children’s crimes are counted as native crimes, not as result of immigration policy. The media also typically does not draw distinctions for country of origin, economic status, or any other useful information considering the immigrant population. So, when discussing immigrant crime rates, the media would average together both the criminal record of a billionaire investor from Canada and an MS-13 gang member from El Salvador. And when discussing native crime rate, the media would average together the U.S-born child of an MS-13 gang member with a 10th generation American whose ancestors fought in the War of 1812.

This is important because (as Mac Donald has explained in previous writings) data from the pro-immigration Migration Policy Institute has shown that “between the foreign-born generation and their American children, the incarceration rate of Mexican-Americans jumps more than eightfold, resulting in an incarceration rate that is 3.45 times higher than that of whites”– yet not one of these crimes would be attributed to the consequences of immigration policy by Mr. Todd or his research staff.

Census data shows that incarceration rates amongst U.S-born Hispanic men are 157 percent higher than the incarceration rates of white men.

In 2008, Heather Mac Donald wrote:

California, with one-quarter of the nation’s immigrants and its greatest concentration of Mexicans and Central Americans, is the bellwether state for all things relating to unbridled Hispanic immigration, including crime. The Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Study, conducted by sociologists Alejandro Portes of Princeton and Rubén G. Rumbaut of the University of California, Irvine, followed the children of immigrants in San Diego and Miami from 1992 to 2003. A whopping 28 percent of Mexican-American males between the ages of 18 and 24 reported having been arrested since 1995, and 20 percent reported having been incarcerated—a rate twice that of other immigrant groups. Anyone who speaks to Hispanic students in immigrant-saturated schools in Southern California will invariably hear the estimate that 50 percent of a student’s peers have ended up in gangs or other criminal activities.

Academically, there are several reasons why statisticians would need to look at second- and third-generation offending rates from certain immigrant groups to gain a sense for policymakers of the intersection between immigration from poor countries and crime rates. For one, most criminals have high rates of recidivism, but if an alien commits a crime, they are eligible for deportation — reducing the opportunities for recidivism in the first generation compared to the second and third. Also, most crimes are committed by males between the ages of 16 to 24, but most foreigners tend to immigrate outside that age range.

It is also easier for aliens to evade conviction as they can flee the jurisdiction or the country altogether. These, and other factors, require looking at second- and third-generation immigrant families to determine how immigration from certain regions of the world impacts community crime.

A 2006 article from the LA Times, which cites LAPD chief William Bratton, reported:

The numbers reveal a wide racial divide regarding violent crime.

Blacks make up about 11% of the city’s population but account for 38% of all homicide victims and 29% of suspects, according to the statistics. By contrast, whites make up 30% of the population but account for just 6% of homicide victims and 2% of suspects. Latinos make up 47% of the population and constitute 50% of homicide victims and 66% of suspects.

Ann Coulter has repeatedly made a broader point not addressed by Mr. Todd on his program — that the proper number of crimes we should be satisfied with immigrants committing is zero yet, instead, we bring in millions of immigrants “from countries with far worse crime rates than our own.”

U.S. Census data shows that the overall population of immigrants is at an all-time high of 41.3 million. As many as 8 million immigrants have entered the United States since President Obama came into office, including 2.5 million illegally (either by crossing the border or overstaying an admissions ticket). Those who came legally — that is, those who were given a visa by the federal government — have federal permits to take jobs and collect benefits, something illegal immigrants do not have. Visa-based immigration is, therefore, the primary way corporations substitute foreigners for Americans.

 

(The Fundamental Argument here is… If you actually* reduce Illegal Immigration then you will also reduce Criminal activity by Illegal Immigrants as fewer of them will be here to COMMIT THE CRIMES.  Frankly, the odds are you would reduce such activity by a far higher percentage than that.  But truth is abandoned by those Leftists who benefit from towing the line for other Leftists.)

*this does not mean simple ceasing to arrest, confront or identify them as is the current Administration policy and reflected in the current statistics cited by the Socialists Without Borders crowd.
