A version of my MDJ commentary in today’s paper on Republican leadership’s treachery regarding amnesty-again along with added, extra information and links to referenced sources can be seen using this link  to the Dustin Inman Society’s website. On the page is information on Sean Hannity’s sudden and sickening “evolution” on amnesty-again.

And a reaction to the GOP’s planned capitulation from Patrick J. Buchanan.

*Also, here is contact info  for the entire Georgia delegation. Just in case you want to ask your own U.S. Congressman or one of Georgia’s U.S. Senators if they will join with the ACLU, La Raza, Jerry Gonzalez and Sean Hannity and are going to be voting to officially reward the illegal aliens and the Chamber of Commerce that have together been running American immigration policy for years. Ask them about JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! and why we would wave the flag of surrender of Ben Franklin’s Republic.

Maybe ask them why the results and consequences of a 2013 legalization would be any different than the “one-time” 1986 legalization – and when they estimate the illegal alien lobby would ever stop the extortion. Or why Hispanics would suddenly vote for Republicans. Or what the difference is between the GOP and Obama’s progressives. Or when the GOP  plans on amnesty number three…

The attempted sell-out will begin in the U.S. Senate. Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss can be contacted at his website  and Georgia Senator Johnny Isakson can be reached at his website .

Here are photos from the successful Georgia citizen uprising against Senate amnesty bill in 2007. Here are quotes   from the same year.

I would write more here, but I feel the need to take a shower.

Hope and change, Obama’s illegal aliens move forward by openly working for his re-election

Just a last note before the election on how Obama has fulfilled his promise to “fundamentally change America.”

Illegal aliens are openly working for his re-election. You can read about it from the WSJ and blogger Debbie  Schlussel.

BTW – According to a new report from the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute at the University of Southern California, illegal immigration from that paradise to our south is back on the rise. Imagine that. The president of the United States ignores American law and the American congress in granting amnesty to another group of illegals, promises general amnesty if re-elected and illegal immigration increases! Who would’a thunkit?

A supplement to my printed MDJ commentary on the Kennesaw State University “ 4th Conference on Immigration to the Southeast: Policy Analysis, Conflict Management” event scheduled for October 18-20, 2012

You can see the conference web page and meeting agenda with the names of the speakers and panel discussion topics. NOTE! I (finally) found an online dictionary with a definition of the word “permissivist”: “reduction in the value of an estate caused by act or neglect”.

  • You can see an MDJ news item about the similar event held in 2010 and my MDJ opinion page commentary on that conference.
  • You can see KSU professor Alan LeBaron’s 2010 response letter to the MDJ editor.
  • The anti-enforcement Georgia Detention Watch website
  • Washington D.C.’s Center for Immigration Studies paper “Immigrants in the United States, 2010 A Profile of America's Foreign-Born Population”. CIS: “Using the latest Census Bureau data from 2010 and 2011, this paper provides a detailed picture of the more than 50 million immigrants (legal and illegal) and their U.S.-born children (under 18) in the United States by country of birth, state, and legal status. One of the most important findings is that immigration has dramatically increased the size of the nation’s low-income population; however, there is great variation among immigrants by sending country and region. Moreover, many immigrants make significant progress the longer they live in the country. But even with this progress, immigrants who have been in the United States for 20 years are much more likely to live in poverty, lack health insurance, and access the welfare system than are native-born Americans. The large share of immigrants arriving as adults with relatively little education partly explains this phenomenon.” Don’t miss the Executive Summary if you don’t have time for the entire study. Which has actual facts.

A new study on the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center hucksters

For your education, a quote from a recent research study focused on the integrity-free SPLC ministry of thought control from American writer James Sampson:

“The Left has always had a problem: how to defend and promote an indefensible agenda, dedicated to covertly undermining and ultimately destroying our society as the essential prerequisite to implementing Socialism. Amongst themselves they are completely honest about this goal. As David Horowitz has explained, "The issue is never the issue, the issue is always the revolution."

But in an ordered society, they must present a facade of legitimacy. They accomplish this with a misuse of language - subtly changing definitions of widely understood and accepted terms - and intimidation. They are good at both.

I had a run in with these despicable people last year, following publication of the AIM report: CASA de Maryland: the Illegals' ACORN. The editor of their "Hatewatch" blog sent me an e-mail, asking if my writing and the positions I took on issues interfered with the temporary job I then held as media consultant to a group of county commissioners…”

As I write, you can read Sampson’s Examiner article outlining his new and informative research study entitled Southern Poverty Law Center: Wellspring of Manufactured Hate  – but prepare for the day when such politically-incorrect honesty is strictly forbidden.

Sorry about the delay in response. Your so predictable chatter put me in a coma for a while. Please head to Mexico with Foley for an extended vacation which would probably be paid for by La Raza.

Forward! Obama, the food-stamp president, is hawking …food stamps – most illegal alien families are using American welfare programs

AUDIO Update: Added Sept 19, 2012: Hear babbling Ruler Obama boast that he “actually agrees with redistribution…”   



A supplement to MDJ commentary: Barack Hussein Obama - the food-stamp president - is hawking that taxpayer provided program on foreign language radio. Don’t miss the Fox News video.

Most illegal alien families use some sort of American welfare program and the myth of “cheap labor” is nonsense. It is really taxpayer subsidized labor. The part about “looking for a better life” is quite true.

Are productive, tax-paying Americans in search of a better life better off now than they were four years ago?

More on the hate mongers at the SPLC

If you haven’t yet, please see the post below this one concerning the SPLC.

Giving race-baiting, parasitic hucksters a bad name: Recommended reading on the Southern Poverty Law Center

I just read the comments there from the local liberals and thought it fun to share a little more exposure of the creatures at the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center. This time from William A. Jacobson at the Legal Insurrection blog with “SPLC’s hatewatch gives cover to hate.”

A sample from Jacobson:

“As long-time readers surely know, I have examined the pernicious methodology of the Southern Poverty Law Center in moving from fighting Klan and neo-Nazi groups to fighting for the Democratic Party agenda against conservatives and the Tea Party.

In seeking to justify its hefty salaries, budget and fundraising, SPLC made a very dangerous leap to treating political opponents as “hate groups” and speech it didn’t like as “hate speech.”

My first post about SPLC was when Mark Potok, head of SPLC’s Hatewatch project, smeared a prominent black female law professor at Vanderbilt as an “apologist for white supremacists,” based upon a complete misreading of her review of a movie involving racially inflammatory rhetoric.  It was a vicious attack, taken apart by James Taranto in The Wall Street Journal.

Since then I examined the SPLC’s tendency to exaggerate hate group statistics for fundraising purposes, including inventing hate groups in my home State of Rhode Island:

The Klan In Rhode Island? SPLC Exaggerates Again

Confirmed – SPLC Exaggerated About Klan In Rhode Island

When it came to the Tea Party, I wrote that SPLC Completed Its Descent Into Madness when it called a speech by Sarah Palin at the National Tea Party Convention in February 2010 one of the landmark events in the “Patriot Movement” (which SPLC defined as Tim McVeigh-type anti-government violent groups):

Whatever SPLC once was, it now is a bastion of political hackery which, by equating legitimate political opposition with criminal violence, is doing substantial damage to our national fabric.

It is time for people of conscience to speak out against SPLC’s tactics.

SPLC continued its agenda against the Tea Party and conservatives when it persisted in claiming that Jared Loughner was “right wing” long after it was clear that was not the case…”

Trust me, it is worth your time to read the rest of Mr. Jacobson’s blog. And educational!

From his bio: “Jacobson is Associate Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the Securities Law Clinic at Cornell Law School. Prof. Jacobson is a 1981 graduate of Hamilton College and a 1984 graduate of Harvard Law School. At Harvard he was Senior Editor of the Harvard International Law Journal and Director of Litigation for the Harvard Prison Legal Assistance Project…”

Enjoy what is no doubt …“hate-reading.”

Giving race-baiting, parasitic hucksters a bad name: Recommended reading on the Southern Poverty Law Center

Giving race-baiting, parasitic hucksters a bad name: Recommended reading on the Southern Poverty Law Center From the American Thinker blog, some significant and all-too-factual insight into the parasitic hucksters at the Montgomery-based Southern Poverty Law Center headlined “Southern Poverty Law Center's Lucrative 'Hate Group' Label.” Please see the link further down.

Along with a lot of other pieces of information well-known to those who stand up to the hate-mongers who are attempting to serve as profiteering “progressive” thought police in 21st century America, the author uses one of my favorite quotes to describe the slithering SPLC founder, Morris Dees: “He's the Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker of the civil rights movement," renowned anti- death-penalty lawyer Millard Farmer says of Dees, his former associate, "though I don't mean to malign Jim and Tammy Faye." That from a former business partner of Dees.

Because of nearly a decade of experience in immigration crime-fighting, the quote always reminds me of Georgia’s own useful ethnic hustler, Jerry Gonzalez, of the open-borders, Jane Fonda-funded Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials Inc (GALEO).

As is the habit of many of us paying attention when having to even type the words “Morris Dees” and “Southern Policy Law Center”, after I scrape the bottom of my pro-enforcement footwear, it is off to the shower to feel clean again.

I urge readers to give the entire American Thinker blog on the creatures at the Poverty Palace a long careful read. And to pass it on.

Hat tip: Author Rosslyn Smith!

SPLC Watcher

August 30, 2012
In a stunning display of candor the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) of Montgomery, Alabama admitted today that it does not monitor "the extreme Left" although for years the organization has billed itself as a watchdog of hate groups.

The admission came during a phone interview conducted by Charles C.W. Cooke of National Review, during which Cooke asked a spokesman for SPLC if the organization had plans to begin to track the Occupy movement in light of the foiled terrorist attempt to blow up a bridge in Cleveland, Ohio.

The suspects who were arrested in the case are connected directly to the Occupy movement.

According to Cooke the person who first answered his call at SPLC appeared stunned by the question. She then transferred him to a representative who was conducting an international conference on right wing extremism.

In an interview that took on the characteristics of a cat and mouse game, the spokesman offered various nebulous reasons for the Center's practice of avoiding the tracking of left wing groups.

Finally, Cooke managed to pin down the spokesman on a key point, which led to a stunning admission that SPLC has never been willing to make in the past. The following excerpt sets the stage:

And then he went on a long speech about “anti-abortion extremists” that had very little to do with what I was asking, but no doubt made him feel good. I met this with silence, so he said that, really, the SPLC only tracks those who commit violence or who seek to destroy whole systems in the name of an ideology.

“Isn’t that exactly what happened in Cleveland?” I asked. “These five men, all linked with Occupy Wall Street, attempted to blow up a bridge as an overture to the wholesale destruction of Cleveland, Ohio, and in the name of anarchism. They also looked to blow up the Republican convention.”

“They were anarchists,” he repeated.

“Yes?”

He paused. “We’re not really set up to cover the extreme Left.”


“Reagan/Bush (& Obama) Amnesty Agenda an Economic Catastrophe for Minorities and Legal Immigrants – but who cares, it produces campaign donations and votes!

Here is a story from the Huffington Post that we are guessing Progressive Politics, Marietta Daily Journal blogger Kevin Foley of Kennesaw Georgia isn’t going to be using in his “I wanna be an expert on illegal immigration” blogs anytime soon.

It is from Robert Hardaway, a law professor at Denver University and economics author   lamenting the fact that the 1986 amnesty for illegal aliens resulted in economic hardship (“catastrophe”) for minorities in America. And that the agenda of ignoring our immigration laws at the insistence of American business is bringing down the wages of our poorest and real immigrants. Which, of course for business, is the goal.

Readers may want to spend a few minutes on this: “Reagan/Bush Amnesty Agenda an Economic Catastrophe for Minorities and Legal Immigrants

Part of which goes like this:

“In 1987, at a time when teenage unemployment among African Americans approached 80 percent [1] , greedy garment makers petitioned the INS to import more cheap labor on grounds that there was an "unskilled labor shortage", repeating the tired mantra that "Americans won't do the dirty work that illegal immigrants are willing to do"-- ignoring the fact that it isn't the dirty jobs that Americans disdain. Cities have no problem recruiting for the dirtiest of jobs, like garbage collection, when decent wages are offered. Most Americans would be willing to pay a few cents more for their tomatoes if it meant social justice for minorities and the legal immigrants who have been reduced to grinding poverty by the Reagan/Bush amnesty agenda.”

None of this will make a shred of difference on immigration enforcement to the Kevin Foley’s of the world however. Having been told what mindless goop the 21st century liberal must go out and sell, sell, sell, the babbling, useful idiots will press for another amnesty and path to citizenship for illegals because they are unable to noodle out the issue themselves., know nearly nothing about it and lack the courage to stand up for their own country.

There is no shortage of evidence of the harm the amnesty of 1986 has done to the USA. Even the then-INS reported on it after the amnesty disaster. Most in the liberal media realize that most Americans don’t even know it ever happened. To even see it mentioned in the press is rather unusual.

Hat tip to Mr. Hardaway.

Candidate Obama’s re-election amnesty – what next?
by DA_King

By now, most of us know that today the Obama regime began implementation of Dear Rulers’ “we won’t enforce American immigration laws that may affect you, so tell your cousins to vote for me” “temporary” re-election amnesty program. This, a little more than a year after Obama assured the angry open borders mob that as president, his duty is to enforce the law. You can see a short video of Obama making that statement.  Please pass it around.

Originally, Obama told the nation his re-election amnesty would apply to about 800,000 illegal aliens. That estimate has now doubled. Because of the massive fraud that is coming, by the time it is over, if it ever is, it will double again.

Right now, there are thousands of deliriously happy forty-something Mexicans – still in Mexico - waiting for the ink to dry on the documents they have just purchased that “prove” they have been residing in desperate victimhood in Anywhereville, USA for years. And that they are twenty-nine years old. After they escape capture after crossing our border illegally and apply for the Obama amnesty, expect many of them to use a taxpayer paid translator.

Expect the immigration lawyer industry to make a handsome profit on “assisting” the illegals with the minimal application process. 

Oddly enough, there are a great many liberals who refuse to admit that this is a shameless campaign maneuver to boost candidate Obama’s Latino voter turn-out and a direct result of the increasingly powerful illegal alien lobby organizing street screamers demanding amnesty.

 These rocket scientists may want to read a fairly recent New York Times news analysis “After Chorus of Protest, New Tune on Deportations.”

President Obama decided last week on a major policy shift to stop deportations of young illegal immigrants after administration officials saw that he was losing the initiative to Republicans on an issue he had long championed and that he was alienating the Latino voters who may be pivotal to his re-election bid.

In recent weeks, the White House faced intense pressure from some of its closest allies — their voices often raised in frustration — to provide some relief for immigrant communities. The urging came from Harry Reid of Nevada and Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the top two Democrats in the Senate, and the Hispanic caucus in the House of Representatives, as well as Latino and immigrant leaders across the country…”

All Americans should recognize that Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat party are capable of literally anything in Obama’s quest for re-election and fulfilling his promise to “fundamentally change the United States.” And we should all ask “what next?”

If Obama’s poll numbers take another dive, does he choose yet another group of illegal alien fugitives for whom immigration laws won’t apply? Will he simply decree that all immigration laws are suspended until he says otherwise?

Which laws does Ruler Obama suspend next? Where are the Republicans? Can a president who despises the rule of law and the U.S. constitution be re-elected? Can the American Republic survive four more years of Barack Obama? Does the Presidential oath of office mean anything in the future?

It has been widely publicized that President Obama's admin has deported more undocumented immigrants in the last three years than any other president in the last 50 years. I am not sure why DA continues to scream at passing cars about this. The laws are being enforced, a more sensible program regarding the children brought here by their parents has commenced, but DA and his drooling followers continue to scream at those passing cars.

Good luck.

“Foley Facts” - Questioning the accuracy of Kevin Foley of Kennesaw Georgia: What sources are used to manufacture “Foley-Facts” on Hispanic voting?”
by DA_King
August 06, 2012 08:28 AM | 2913 views | 38 38 comments | 40 40 recommendations | email to a friend | print | permalink
Recently, while reluctantly digesting (pass the Pepto) more of the writings of MDJ blogger Kevin Foley of Kennesaw Georgia, it was noted that he continually repeats the assertion that Hispanics were once a solidly Republican voting-bloc. Another “Foley-Fact?”

 “Foley-Facts” are different than real facts.

 According to Foley in one of his blogs “The crucial Hispanic-Latino voting bloc, once solidly GOP until the anti-immigrant dead enders like Mr. King, Jan Brewer and Joe Arpiao shooed them off, now supports President Obama over Mitt Romney by wide margins.” Angrily noting that this writer refused his offer to stop referring to illegal aliens as “illegal aliens” in another nugget of wisdom and while insisting that use of accurate and legal terms used in discussion of illegal immigration was driving Hispanics away from the GOP, Foley tells us he has determined that “proof could be found in the numbers of Hispanics and Latinos, formerly reliable Republican voters, who now support Democrats in overwhelming numbers.”

Using the endless liberal attempt to turn fantasy into “fact” by sheer repetition, Kevin Foley, a self proclaimed public relations expert, attempts to educate wonder-struck readers yet again in another blogging exhibition of his political expertise. He directs a warning to yours truly that truth is hurtful and must be regarded as “hate-talk’” with … “yours is a losing position as long as it's predicated on de-humanizing undocumented workers. How do I know? Hispanic and Latino voters - once reliably Republican - have fled the GOP in droves over the hate talk.” (All italics mine)

Angry Liberal Kevin Foley’s “Foley-Facts” have proven to be an ideal, real-life basis for lesson-planning for those of us who try to educate Americans on the crimes of illegal immigration and illegal employment. And he is being noted around the internet for his constant inaccuracies.

Real Fact: Hispanic Americans do not represent a monolithic voting block and according to Gallup, immigration is not their number-one issue.

Like most of us, important topics for voting Latinos are jobs, jobs, jobs, preserving first-world health care and the sinking Obama-owned economy. Only the blustering, research-free, clueless, fringe lefties actually believe that ignoring our laws and legalizing the millions of fugitive illegal aliens screaming in our streets would somehow help in that area. That includes the Hispanic Americans who proudly serve on the Board of Advisors of the pro-enforcement Dustin Inman Society for which this long-time American serves as sweeper, president and spokesman. Foley hopes readers don’t know that (real) fact.

The assertion that the majority of Hispanics were ever “solidly GOP” is the more of the usual “Foley-Fact” goop. Umm…when exactly?

We offer a reminder from one of Foley’s fellow liberal travelers, Carlos Munoz Jr, Professor Emeritus Department of Ethnic Studies, University of California, Berkeley: “the Mexican-American vote made the difference for President Kennedy in his defeat of Richard Nixon 40-years ago… politicians are well aware of the fact that Latinos will not vote as a cohesive bloc - the majority of Latinos are registered Democrats but the ranks of Latino Republicans has increased significantly over the years.” (BBC:“The Latino challenge” November, 2000).

Someone please tell Kevin Foley: Munoz is referring to John F. Kennedy, a Democrat who was elected President in 1960 – now more than fifty years ago. So much for Latinos being “once reliably Republican.” Somebody please ask Foley “when?”

We have taken to referring to his fabricated nonsense as “Foley-Facts” in good fun.  Let it be noted here that Kevin Foley should seriously consider hiring a fact-checker. We offer Politics Progressive Kevin Foley writing about the Tea Party and Congressman Allen West   and the Obama DREAM Act amnesty as just two examples in addition to the blog you are reading. More coming as time allows.

Wanna-be authority Kevin Foley may want to stoop to citing his sources when he shares his vast base of “knowledge” as he oozes down the race-baiting, anti-enforcement road.

Maybe he regards it as a ‘hate-fact”, but Foley should admit that candidate Barack Hussein Obama promised another amnesty during his first year in office. And that the Democrats were in full majority power for the first two years of his presidency. And that the reason there was not an official legalization program passed in congress is because the majority of Americans reject amnesty and identity politics.

And that Obama’s real record  on immigration enforcement is dismal, dangerous and calculated to buy votes from the less-than-patriotic Latinos who will put tribalism over the rule of law. Time will tell the size of that disgusting group.

Meanwhile, readers who have trouble figuring out the dynamics of the voting scenario as applied to “the Hispanic vote” may want to give Sean Trende’s May 28 commentary from National Review a read. Before Kevin Foley labels it “hate-talk.”

NRO:

The GOP and the Latino Vote (subscription)

Good news: Republicans can do what they think is right

“So why don’t Republicans perform better with Latino voters? The answer is simple: income. In 2008, Barack Obama won 73 percent of Latino voters earning less than $15,000 a year, and 57 percent of similarly situated white voters. (Although many Latinos are white, since “Latino” represents an ethnicity rather than a race, for simplicity’s sake I’ll use “white” as shorthand for “non-Hispanic white.”) Among voters making $100,000 to $150,000 a year, 59 percent of Latinos and 42 percent of whites went for Obama — a sizable difference, to be sure, but much less than the 24 points between Obama’s share of Latino and white voters overall.

In 2004 the pattern was even more pronounced. Among voters earning less than $15,000 a year, John Kerry won 58 percent of Latinos and 57 percent of whites — a nearly even split. Among those with annual incomes over $100,000, his share of both the Latino vote and the white vote dropped — to 50 and 37 percent, respectively.

In other words, Latino voters vote a lot more like white voters when you control for income. The difference is that there are more poor Latino voters than poor white voters, which creates the appearance of a larger divide between the groups when one looks only at the aggregated numbers.

But as the character of the Latino population changes from immigrant to second- and third-generation American, it should grow wealthier, and the income gap between Latinos and whites should close. This should, in turn, help to close the gap in voting patterns. To be sure, a gap of ten or fifteen percentage points between white and Latino voters is nothing to sneeze at. But neither does it spell ruin for the Republicans.”

We hope you will read more about - and from - Kevin Foley and Foley Facts on his MDJ blog.

Somebody should.  But get out the Pepto.

And a truth detector.
