Is it Xenophobia?
The Cherokee Nation has spoken:
“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said. “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation” – Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.
What Mr. Hoskin is refusing to accept is the Reality that Elizabeth Warren is simply an “Undocumented Cherokee”. Ms. Warren is here whether Mr. Hoskin and his Tribe, like it or not. Since she is already claiming Cherokee Heritage and has acted as a member in good standing of the Cherokee Nation for Decades it is only reasonable that the Cherokee Nation accept her and provide full rights and benefits as possessed by every Cherokee Tribe Member. I should remind Mr. Hoskin that Senator Warren has contributed greatly to the Tribe from her representation as a ‘Person of Color’ at Harvard to Cookbooks highlighting uniquely Native American Cuisine. Senator Warren has promoted the Tribes by personally excelling through a life of Socialist politics while positively absolutely and without question not capitalizing on her Native American Identity.
My message to Mr. Hoskin is as follows:
Dear Mr. Hoskin Jr.,
I hope the Sovereign Nations can pry themselves away from what civilized people would consider a 19th Century mindset.
The World is Not Flat, Mr. Hoskins.
Elizabeth Warren is Native American because she says she is. You must respect that.

I have a simple question.
Is Mexico responsible for anything?
Admittedly, it is difficult to lay complete blame for the drug violence on Mexico when we (the U.S. citizenry) are consuming the product of, and we (the U.S. government) are arming, the drug cartels. So let’s be generous and say “we” are responsible for 60% of the problem. Seem reasonable? So why do we only hear about our 60%? What about the other 40%?
(Update the below paragraph with “Caravans heading North”…)
Considering the lines outside emigration services yesterday it struck me that Mexico was doing nothing to help “legitimize” the status of the individuals in line. But to Mexico’s defense even if they had I’m not sure it would have been warmly received. In fact, several of the “on scene” interviews sounded more like asylum cases in that the individual would run down a list of how inhospitable and outright dangerous Mexico is. The idea of going back, to them, would be cruel and unusual punishment for crime they did not commit. While I personally enjoy Mexico and find it to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth… I do not necessarily disagree, but it lends to the larger issue.
Is Mexico responsible for anything? If so, what?
Let’s say Canadians were flooding across the border for reasons of escape… (which in some medically related scenarios is not so far-fetched) would we be so tolerant of the Canadian government as to continuously find ways to blame ourselves? And since we’re on that topic… blame ourselves for what? Is it our fault that we cling to the final visage of Free-Market Capitalism in the world and the prosperity it promulgates, thus creating a more desirable alternative than the place these folks are escaping from?
So why are we quiet in regard to Mexico?
Why exactly is it not Mexico’s responsibility to create that same atmosphere for their citizens? (The same applies to all Latin American countries given our current predicament.)
Why should Mexico be absolved of the international cry to improve their economy, create jobs and control crime repeatedly leveled at the U.S.? It’s certainly not a lack of natural resources, ports, or favorable climate… It’s clearly not the lack of population or strong work ethic. So why?
Partly it is a U.S. media predisposed to self loathe U.S. success and prosperity. It simply is not in vogue to appreciate the Capitalist system our country was founded on, assuming they know what that is, or the riches realized from it. The flip side of that is a programmed desire not to criticize Socialist countries, not because it might make the country look bad but because they would have to look in the mirror and re-evaluate their personal beliefs.
The final aspect is Political Correctness and the fear of being labeled racist should anyone step up and offer the truth. They know the first Journalist to speak out loud that ‘Mexico shares the blame for our border problems and must own their economic woes will be labeled a bigot who hates… I don’t even know anymore… Mexicans? Hispanics? Latinos? Mayans? Aztecs? Spaniards? I mean seriously. The world is cosmopolitan. Having a Spanish surname means little here in the U.S. but the census still counts you as Hispanic… Why? Because that’s how the money is handed out. Rest assured, someone would be offended somewhere, so you’d be a bigot somehow.
All I’m asking for is reasoned, rational, discussion.
What I’m saying simply is there must be a focus on other countries responsibility when it comes to their citizenry and internal economic problems.
Unfortunately it seems all too easy to blame the U.S. for all the ills in the world, especially by our own journalists. When I say “easy”, I mean both comfortably and safely. They are comfortable because they believe it, and they are safe because they know as long as they blame the U.S. First… there will be no punishment directed at them from the industry of the offended. The Antifa Fascists will be fine with it, so they know their houses will not be burnt down.
Think about the comments from the EU and how the problems they suffer are always the fault of United States. The starvation and disease in Africa is our fault. The illegal immigration problem right here in the U.S. is our fault… because, like every other country in the world including Mexico, we don’t openly accept just anyone who crosses the border. It’s stunning how the world expects us to bend in every way imaginable while they conduct themselves in a way of “business as usual”.
It’s also stunning that absolutely no attention is paid to how we became a country that could help those less fortunate on our borders… and around the world. But here’s a hint… it wasn’t by giving all of our stuff away.
I am a Capitalist. As such, this is not a cry to seal the borders and not let anyone in, or pull all of our Diplomats home. On the contrary, I like tall fences and wide gates. I expect to have access to the best products at the best prices for my self-determined needs. Having emissaries abroad is important to communicate the benefits of freedom and liberty of the individual as well as aid those who wish to embrace it for themselves in their own countries.
But there needs to be rational and reasonable assessments when determining the foundation of problems lest no solutions can ever be arrived at.
Unless that’s the point.

(A repost from 8/16/12, since illegal immigration is now being used to destroy the Constitution’s Separation of Powers. It’s dated, but brings up what I believe to be an important question. What are we saying about Mexico? Are we delaying a Revolution south of our Border? If so, to whose benefit? And if we are delaying a Revolution, is it serving to make Mexico, and Latin America as a whole, more Fragile?)

… More than Ever for the Senseless Slaughter of our Men, Women and Children by otherwise Peaceful Islamo-Fascists with clearly stated designs on Controlling the World.
We know it is within us as We have performed this favor, with Determination, on behalf of Socialism over the last 100-years. Why would we allow another Elitist, Bigoted, Homophobic, Misogynistic, Statist Ideology be treated differently? Of course, we simply can’t.
Mr. President, for almost a decade you’ve made it clear we should not.
The World will always look to The United States for Leadership… and Citizens, Non-Citizens and those Oppressed Individuals lacking Documentation, of The United States look to You for the same.
I implore you, Mr. President, Demand we Understand and be Accepting in these most confusing of times by Demonstrating to the World that Acquiescence is the only Path to Peace.
“If not Us, Who? If not Now, When?”
Remember that Mr. President?

Jeb Bush is refusing to discuss the illegalities associated with Foreign donations to The Clinton Foundation and subsequent State Department Favors being Doled Out by Hillary.

Or is Eric Holder just a Smug, Arrogant, Elitist who holds nothing but Contempt for the Separation of Powers?
Transcript of Exchange:
(Background: At issue was a request for documents in the DOJ’s case against the Holy Land Foundation, a designated terrorist group based in Texas, whose founders were convicted and sentenced for funneling money to Hamas. The men are now asking for a new trial, blaming their lawyers for their convictions. In February, the DOJ disputed their attorney’s claim, saying there was a “mountain of evidence” that proves the Islamic charity was controlled by Hamas.)
“I was fairly specific to make sure that I got the documents that the Department of Justice handed over to people convicted of supporting terrorism. They’re terrorists. We’ve given them the documents,” Gohmert said. Gohmert said the committee sent the Justice Department repeated requests for the documents that had been used to prosecute them but were only provided a link to “nearly 500 publicly available exhibits that were admitted into evidence” and instructed “to check the public access to court electronic records.” Meanwhile, the requested documents were “put on discs and sent to Illinois,” so they are easily available – “just not to members of Congress,” Gohmert said.
“Attorney General, I’ve read in the 5th Circuit opinion, about 9600 summaries of transcripts of conversations that the Justice Department had that were made available to attorneys for the terrorists,” Gohmert said. “I still do not understand why your department can provide documents to terrorists’ lawyers, and many of them to four out of eight of the terrorists, and not provide them to members of Congress.” “Sir, I’ve read you what your department promised, and it is inadequate, and I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said.
Holder: “You don’t want to go there, buddy. You don’t want to go there, okay?”
Gohmert: “I don’t want to go there?”
Holder: “No.” Gohmert: “About the contempt?”
Holder: “You should not assume that that is not a big deal to me. I think that it was inappropriate. I think it was unjust, but never think that that was not a big deal to me. Don’t ever think that.”
Gohmert: “Well I’m just looking for evidence, and normally we’re known by our fruits, and there have been no indications that it was a big deal, because your department has still not been forthcoming in producing the documents that were the subject of the contempt.”
Holder: “The documents that we were prepared to make available then, we’re prepared to make available now that would have obviated the whole need. This was all about the gun lobby and a desire to have a—
Gohmert: “Sir, we’ve been trying to get to the bottom of Fast and Furious where people died, where at least a couple hundred Mexicans died, and we can’t get the information to get to the bottom of that, so I don’t need lectures from you about contempt, because it is very difficult to deal with asking questions.”
Holder: “And I don’t need lectures from you either.”
Gohmert: “As a former judge, I’d never have asked questions of someone who’s been held in contempt. We waited ‘til the contempt was purged, and then we asked questions.”

So either AG Holder and Congressman Louie Gohmert are “Buddies” or Eric Holder is an Arrogant A-Hole. May be both.
Considering We the People wish to see Lois Lerner of IRS Targeting Political Enemies Fame placed in Contempt… it’s worth wondering what power that charge actually has?
If you’re found guilty of Contempt of Congress such as Eric Holder has been, So What?
I’m pretty sure I would be put in Jail.
I guess if you’re associated with Government, you become Buddies. You also Demonstrate for all of us out here Who still Give a Crap that you’re Above the Law.
And when You’re the one in charge of Enforcing the Law where does that leave us?

Is there any question left that the Bill of Rights has been completely destroyed?
If you think you had a Right to Privacy (The very First Amendment) protected by you Right to not be subject to Unreasonable Search and Seizures (The Fourth Amendment) you should revisit the issue.
The Department of Homeland Security has decided it has The Right to search, copy and keep everything on your Laptop, Phone etc. Actually… the study states they can continue to do this.
Full Article: here.
(Update 060613: NSA received phone records for ALL Verizon phone customers.
The NSA seizes every conversation, text, picture sent, person called, message to loved ones… everything… for every Verizon customer.
And that’s just what we know so far. Elitist Progressives like Senator Lindsey Graham (R – South Carolina) believe there is no problem with keeping every American under constant surveillance.)
How much more Folks? Watching the Corruption and Those Defending it for all to see… What exactly is the Tipping Point?
Why do We Need the DHS?
Why do we need half of these fools?
When is it enough?
