Cost of educating new class of illegal immigrant minors estimated at over $760M
Who says you can't put a price on diversity?
Who says you can't put a price on diversity?
What's the difference between conservatives and leftists? Conservatives know that ancestry and heritage determine culture. Leftists say that ancestry and heritage determine culture. What they disagree on is whether the historic culture is something to be nourished or dismantled. Whether liberals or communists, all leftists know that heritage must be eradicated. So Beijing now seeks to do away with those pesky, secession-minded Uighurs by offering incentives to encourage mixed marriages. From the Washington Post:
China is offering cash rewards for interracial marriages in its troubled Muslim-majority region of Xinjiang, according to news reports, mirroring a policy now being promoted in Tibet. President Xi Jinping has responded to ethnic unrest in Xinjiang and Tibet with a familiar strategy: putting in place suffocating security controls and promising significant investment in development and infrastructure, the moves buttressed by the continued migration of China’s majority Han people into both regions. But Xi has also shifted policy toward a concept of “inter-ethnic fusion,” according to James Leibold, an expert on China's ethnic policies who teaches at Melbourne’s La Trobe University. That is a move away from China’s long-standing idea of “separate but equal” ethnicities and toward a more American-style concept of a melting pot — or, in Xi’s own words, the binding together of China’s ethnic groups as tightly as the seeds in a pomegranate.I think Ol' Longshanks would approve:
I don't know. When he's not featuring R-rated porn to boost his numbers on what he imagines is a "serious" political site, he's cheering on yet another war that he doesn't have to fight. Clearly desperate to get a job with a Neocon think tank, he eagerly smears those who oppose DC's agenda of perpetual war or who question US taxpayer subsidies to the Israeli government. But Douglas' hit piece on William Lind is pure slime scraped from the bottom of a third-world sewer. Douglas not only maligns Lind, but tosses in links to other hit pieces that slander the South and Jefferson Davis. And notice that those pieces he links to favorably mention the Southern Poverty Law Center and the ADL, two leftist hit squads. You know a man by the company he keeps.
Nationalism, as Samuel Huntington once pointed out, is like a bent twig - at some point, it will snap back. In the megastate once known as the United Kingdom, nationalism is snapping back so forcefully, it's knocking some politicians off their feet. From the astounding growth of UKIP, which sell-out politicians and their tame media tried to ignore, to the resurgence of Scottish nationalism, the multi-cultural experiment is quickly collapsing. Now Welsh nationalists feel energized by the success of the Scottish National Party's independence referendum:
Less than a month before Scotland holds a referendum on whether to leave Britain, Wales is watching with a mix of envy, excitement and trepidation. “If Scotland votes yes, the genie is out of the bottle,” said Leanne Wood, leader of Wales’s nationalist party Plaid Cymru. Only one in 10 Welsh voters supports independence, compared with about four in 10 in Scotland, but Ms. Wood thinks that could change. “The tectonic plates of the United Kingdom are shifting,” she said.I'd say the genie will stay out of the bottle even if the SNP doesn't win next month. The dreary uniformity of multiculturalism simply cannot compete with the natural yearning to see one's own people and culture stake a claim in the future. No amount of name-calling will kill that desire.
I remember all too well those days when people would look at me funny when I denounced DC as an empire. No, they'd say, this is a government of, by, and for THE PEOPLE. But that was then. Now, in the wake of the USA Patriot Act, Ed Snowden's earth-shaking revelations, and DC's obvious plan to wage perpetual war and the public be damned, it's probably a majority that sees DC as an illegitimate and rogue conqueror. This article, aptly entitled "A Free Society Must Give Up Empire," lays out what we MUST do to stop this monster:
If Americans want a free society at home, then they must convince the U.S. government to give up its global empire. The militarized police recently on display in Ferguson was no freak coincidence: Antiwar activists and other civil libertarians have been warning for decades that an aggressive US foreign policy would eventually destroy domestic liberties. Americans can’t ask their government to subjugate foreigners with bombs but bow to their own wishes at the ballot box.Hey, it's kinda neat being in the mainstream for a change.
In 1999, East Timor residents voted to secede from Indonesia. Self-determination is what folks do when they have a choice. Multi-culturalism is what happens when conquered peoples are forced together.
We've been saying for some time now that as the government and its institutions are turned against us, we need to secede from those institutions. The government schools are a perfect place to start. This story reveals how North Carolinians are increasingly turning their backs on the governments Satanic mills:
North Carolina officials say there has been a huge increase over the past two years in the number of Tar Heel families who have pulled their kids out of public schools and begun educating them at home. The number of homeschools has jumped 27 percent since the 2011-12 school year, NewsObserver.com reports.homeschoolhouse As of last year, 98,172 North Carolinian children were homeschooled; that’s 2,400 students more than the number who attended a private school. While the sputtering economy is the reason families are choosing homeschooling over private schooling, the nationalized learning experiment (Common Core) is the main reason families are leaving the public schools in the first place. “Common Core is a big factor that I hear people talk about,” Beth Herbert, founder of Lighthouse Christian Homeschool Association, told NewsObserver.com. “They’re not happy with the work their kids are coming home with. They’ve decided to take their children home.”You may recall this video of a Common Core SUPPORTER admitting the agenda was anti-White:
With 20 days to go, the Scottish pro-independence movement is gaining momentum. This story highlights an important development that every independence movement must understand:
Earlier this year, Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister under the Edinburgh parliament’s current limited powers, said that Scotland would be becoming independent “in more promising circumstances than virtually any nation in history,” if it votes for secession. ... On Thursday, 200 company heads signed an open letter to say independence was in Scotland’s “best interest.” “We are involved in business and entrepreneurship at different levels in Scotland and around the world. We believe independence is in the best interests of Scotland’s economy and its people,” the letter reads. Leading signatories are Sir Brian Souter, chairman of Stagecoach, an Australian-based transport giant, Jim McColl, chairman and CEO of Clyde Blowers, a £1 billion engineering group, and Ralph Topping, former CEO of bookmaker William Hill.Yes, people will make economic sacrifices to preserve identity. And yes, there is also that all-too-human fear of change and the unknown. But economic disruptions must be minimized if people are to support secession. Alex Salmond, the head of the Scottish National Party, has figured that out.
In 1991, the Supreme Soviet, the parliament of the U.S.S.R., suspended all activities of the Communist Party, bringing an end to the institution. That was something I once thought I'd never live to see. In college, EVERYONE knew communism was inevitable. Oops.
This is the inevitable response to Open Borders - Whites will be forced to create their own political units. As California goes, so goes the rest of the country - so here's a little preview of things to come:
After a rally at the Capitol marked by chants of “The time has come for 51!” and a surprise appearance by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, supporters of the State of Jefferson presented their “declarations of separation” to the California Legislature on Thursday. The declarations from Modoc and Siskiyou counties, expressing their desire to withdraw from California because of a lack of representation in Sacramento, marked the first official step in the secession movement’s long-running efforts to re-form as a new state in Northern California.Can't say as I'm all that wild about their flag, but, hey, it's a start. The point is that we're seeing once again that the Empire's "one size fits all" notion is not working and cannot work. The system is collapsing, to be replaced by a network of city-states, region-states, and ethnic-based states.
I was greatly pleased by the news that J.R.R. Tolkien's son discovered his father's manuscript of an original translation of Beowulf and had it published. And this thoughtful review in The Catholic World Report is just as enjoyable. Tolkien's inspired translation is a forceful reminder that whatever perversions and distractions may delude and ensnare modern man, certain truths endure:
At the least, we can say that there is more reality to Old English folklore than in the perverse fantasies by which Americans now live. When a society promotes disloyalty and monstrosity so far as to celebrate dragons and vampires and witches, when respectability-craving “conservatives” can always find reasons to compromise with the next phase of an ongoing anti-Christian revolution, when piles of gadgets and toys and luxury goods are offered in compensation for the loss of faith, family, and roots—why, in such times we could do worse than to recall Beowulf’s trusty kinsman Wiglaf, who lives by the dictum that “[k]inship may nothing set aside in virtuous mind.”This reminds me of Sam Francis' review of James C. Russell’s The Germanization of Early Medieval Christianity, which argued that northern European Christianity was heavily influenced by the pagan worldview of its adherents. Unlike the "world-rejecting" Oriental religions, northern Europeans embraced and celebrated the world, including their past:
The saints and Christ Himself were depicted as Germanic warrior heroes; both festivals and locations sacred in ancient Germanic cults were quietly taken over by the Christians as their own; and words and concepts with religious meanings and connotations were subtly redefined in terms of the new religion. Yet the final result was not that the Germans were converted to the Christianity they had originally encountered, but rather that that form of Christianity was “Germanized,” coming to adopt many of the same Indo-European folk values that the old pagan religion had celebrated.I think J.R.R. Tolkien would approve.
You know you're gaining weight/getting old/going bald or whatever, when your friends start noticing and commenting. The DC Empire is busily self-destructing by launching wars that are as endless as they are pointless, importing millions of immigrants yearning to be on the government dole, and subverting its historic culture and demographic. And other countries are noticing. Add Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany to the growing list of foreign leaders willing to state what's obvious to everyone but the self-appointed Masters of the Universe in DC - the last empire is fading fast.
That's not my headline - it's from the author, David Stockman, who served as the director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Reagan administration. Here, he examines the latest insanity from DC, which has become so detached from reality that it's mutated from switching sides in Syria to wanting to attack everything in sight:
Exactly one year ago Obama proposed to take Bashar Al Assad to the woodshed because he had allegedly unleashed a vicious chemical attack on his own citizens. That was all pretext, of course, because even the CIA refused to sign-off on the flimsy case for Assad’s culpability at the time—-a reluctance corroborated since then by the considerable evidence that hundreds of Syrian civilians were murdered during a false flag operation staged by the rebels with help from Turkey. The aim of the rebels, of course, was to activate American tomahawk missiles and bombers in behalf of “regime change”, which was also the stated goal of the Obama Administration. Now the White House is threatening to bomb Syria again, but this time its “regime change” objective has been expanded to include both sides!Now, normal people can see just how nutty this sounds, but in DC, it makes perfect sense to launch an unprovoked attack on both sides of a civil war. Freedom is on the march! Or something like that.
So says Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs ... as long as it's solidarity among the right people. Here, he posts a video that denounces Senator Marco Rubio for the horrendous crime of enforcing federal immigration laws. The video is entitled, "SEN MARCO RUBIO SIDES WITH HIS PARTY OVER HIS PEOPLE." Can you imagine how Prince Charles would sniff and scowl over a video that accused a White politician of working against his own people?
Progressives want Obama to nationalize the nation's police forces into one massive, unstoppable domestic army. Of course, their announced intentions are the most noble:
In cities across America, local law enforcement units too often treat low-income neighborhoods populated by African Americans and Latinos as if they are military combat zones instead of communities where people strive to live, learn, work, play and pray in peace and harmony. Youth of color, black boys and men especially, who should be growing up in supportive, affirming environments are instead presumed to be criminals and relentlessly subjected to aggressive police tactics that result in unnecessary fear, arrests, injuries, and deaths.Yes, it's for the minorities, as are almost all expansions of DC's power over us. You see, we can't trust local communities to treat these helpless people fairly. Only the enlightened ones in DC can dispense justice fairly and equitably while respecting the rights of its citizens. (That's why the National Security Agency is held in such high regard.) The open letter to Obama invokes the case of Michael Brown, naturally. But it fails to mention the riots that erupted as a result of his shooting, which suggests there's good reason for the police to suspect the people in these communities have other things in mind than just wanting to "live, learn, play, and pray in peace and harmony." From the look and sound of things in Ferguson, I'd say these populations are looking for an excuse to loot and burn. But that's just me.
What's this? These people seem to think Muslims might not like having the US bomb their homelands - and might even strike back. From Fox News:
The FBI and Department of Homeland Security have sent out a bulletin to law enforcement officials warning that U.S. airstrikes in Iraq could provoke retaliation by Islamic State sympathizers in the U.S., Fox News has learned. The warning on Friday comes shortly after U.S. intelligence officials said there is evidence foreign fighters have returned to their home countries and started Islamic State cells. While there is no evidence of a credible plot against the U.S. now, the latest bulletin warns that the lone wolf nature of the threat would make it difficult to thwart. "It is difficult to predict triggers that will contribute to [homegrown violent extremists] attempting acts of violence," the bulletin said. "[Lone wolf terrorists] present law enforcement with limited opportunities to detect and disrupt plots, which frequently involve simple plotting against targets of opportunity." Islamic State militants claimed last week that the execution of American journalist James Foley was in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes in Iraq.Makes sense to me. After all, 9/11 was just blowback from DC's 60-odd year war against Muslims in the Middle East. And with our borders so laughably porous, and with numerous immigrant communities to hide in, Muslim terrorists would have little trouble carrying out retaliatory operations in the US. So we'd better think twice before unleashing hell once again - it might bounce back at us.
Uh-oh - looks like more folks are catching on to DC's deception. Here's leftist professor Cornel West expressing his disappointment at Obama:
No, the thing is he posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality and it turned out that he’s just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair. And that’s a very sad moment in the history of the nation because we are—we’re an empire in decline. Our culture is in increasing decay. Our school systems are in deep trouble. Our political system is dysfunctional. Our leaders are more and more bought off with legalized bribery and normalized corruption in Congress and too much of our civil life.Whoa! Notice he uses the terms "empire in decline," "war crimes," "national security presidency," and "Wall Street presidency." If you closed your eyes, you'd think you were listening to a League of the South speech. But West is right - the DC Empire is no democracy where new leaders can be elected if the present ones disappoint - THEY'RE ALL THE SAME. All presidents serve the Military Industrial Complex by giving it the gloss of popular support. The Empire is run by Big Business and Big Government, what Eisenhower originally denounced as the "Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex." The bottom line is that the DC Empire is losing legitimacy. Tick-tock...
Our handlers have hit the panic button about ISIS, so patriotic Americans are supposed to run around their computers and TVs screaming their lungs out and beg Obama to save them. (So - it's 2003 again.) And just as in the days prior to the invasion of Iraq (what former NSA director Lt. General William Odom called "the greatest strategic disaster in American history"), there are authoritative voices countering the hysteria. Despite the ravings of the armchair strategists and coffee table security experts, the FBI sees no domestic threat from ISIS:
US officials have been keen to build up the threat of ISIS to ever broader, ever more hysterical levels. Sen. James Inhofe (R – OK) even claimed they’re close to coming up with some secret way to wipe out an entire major US city. The honest assessments aren’t nearly so alarmist, with the FBI conceding in a bulletin issued to local law enforcement today that there is no specific or credible threat of an ISIS terror attack on the US.Have we learned our lessons from Afghanistan and Iraq? We can always hope - and try our best to get the word out in time.
In 1305, Scottish leader and national hero, William Wallace, was executed in London.
It's the biggest threat to our freedom and lives since Saddam Hussein and Manuel Noriega combined! There's no time to think! Let's bomb something! Yes, here we go again - the DC Empire is about to unleash hell in the Middle East once again. Those drooling sounds you hear are from the War Industry and the pro-war, any war crowd. Fox News has the lascivious details:
Top U.S. military brass and former administration officials are publicly pressuring the White House to consider taking the fight against the Islamic State into Syria, warning that the terror organization poses an unprecedented threat to the United States. "ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They're beyond just a terrorist group," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday, adding that the U.S. will have to take a "cold, steely hard look" and "get ready."And THIS TIME, we're assured there REALLY IS a threat to the Homeland. Really.
“In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law." Vladimir Putin, in an 8/4/2014 address to the Duma
Yankee blowhard Pete King, safe 'n snug in his Congressional office suite, wants Obama to order yet another bloody round of mayhem against the people of the Middle East:
Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) on Wednesday said the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was effectively "a declaration of war" and called for a stronger U.S. military response. "The president has to announce that this is a basically almost a declaration of war on the United States," King said Wednesday in a phone interview. "We don't have the luxury of just saying, 'The war is over. The war's not going on,’ ” he continued. “There is a war. It's a threat to the U.S., and we have to fight back.”Pete King could be the reincarnation of William T. Sherman. He's got the power, and he's got the crazy.
In 1991, Latvia declares its independence from the Soviet Union. Lincoln worshiper Eric Foner freaks out.
Let's see how Charles Johnson and the SPLC manhandle this inconvenient fact about the left's favorite "gentle giant":
Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department's top brass told FoxNews.com.
“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”
Just over a month after signing the controversial saggy pants ordinance, Ocala Mayor Kent Guinn said Tuesday he no longer supports it and is urging council members to reconsider.
"I think you get into really dangerous territory when you start legislating what type of clothes people wear or how they put together their ensemble," Guinn said.
His stance comes after criticism by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The groups claims to be taking direct action against the city, which can mean a lawsuit, according to Dale Landry, with the NAACP Florida chapter.
"I'm sorry, it's going to be black males that are the subject of this," Landry said.
The saggy pants law bans anyone on city property from wearing his or her pants two inches below the natural waist in a way that exposes their underwear or buttocks. Offenders can be fined up to $500 and spend time in jail.This is what the Civil Rights Revolution has produced: same-sex "marriage," open borders, and now the God-given right to wear your pants around your knees in public.
“For a Westerner to trash Western culture is like criticizing our nitrogen/oxygen atmosphere on the grounds that it sometimes gets windy, and besides, Jupiter’s is much prettier. You may not realize its advantages until you’re trying to breathe liquid methane.” Neal Stephenson
In the name of equality, private property must be abolished along with traditional morality. And both took a beating recently in New York. From American Thinker:
New York farmers who host birthday parties and other events must pay a $13,000 fine because they refused to host a gay wedding.So the Giffords cannot use their own property as they see fit, and they must suffer for refusing to embrace Cultural Marxism. And remember - the Civil Rights Revolution was supposed to extend freedom to all.
The couple, Cynthia and Robert Gifford, have hosted gay wedding receptions in the past. But because weddings are conducted on the first floor of their house, Cynthia Gifford refused to host a gay wedding ceremony of two lesbians because of her Christian faith.
