Bangladeshi Jihadist Plotted to Destroy New York's Federal Reserve Bank

New York City just dodged another Islamic bullet. The would-be mass-murderer, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis (pictured), thought he had a 1,000-pound bomb parked in front of the Federal Reserve Bank, but fortunately he had been headed off by an FBI agent posing as a fellow jihadist and the explosives were fake.

The 21-one-year-old came from Bangladesh on a student visa and had attended Southeast Missouri State University in the spring semester, pursuing a Bachelors of Science in cyber security. But getting a college education was a merely a ruse, and his purpose in entering America was to commit a major jihadist act with lots of dead.

The criminal complaint explained that Nafis wrote an article about his motivations, including quotations from the late Mr. bin Laden to justify an action he thought would kill many women and children, plus his intention to take down America’s economic system:

all I had in my mind are how to destroy America . . . I came up to this conclusion that targeting America’s economy is most efficient way to draw the path of obliteration of America as well as the path of establishment of Khilapha.

I decided to attack the Federal Reserve bank of New York which is by far the largest (by assets), most active (by volume) and most influential of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks. New York Federal Reserve Bank implements monetary policy, supervises and regulates financial institutions and helps maintain the nation’s payment systems.

Before going forward with his bomb plot, Nafis filmed a videotape of himself telling Americans “We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom.”

New York City has had 15 attempted terror attacks since 9/11, indicating that the city remains a desirable target for Allah’s killers.

Bangladeshi man arrested after allegedly trying to blow up Fed building in NYC, Fox News, October 17, 2012

Federal authorities arrested a Bangladeshi national Wednesday morning for allegedly plotting to blow up a Federal Reserve Bank in New York City’s lower Manhattan, mere blocks away from the site of the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001. The bank is one of 12 branches around the country.

The 21-year-old suspect, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, attempted to detonate what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb in front of the Fed building on Liberty Street, but the device was a fake supplied to him by undercover FBI agents who had been tracking his activity, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force said Wednesday afternoon.

The supposed explosives posed no threat to the public, the FBI said.

A criminal complaint accuses Nafis of having overseas connections to Al Qaeda and travelling to the U.S. in January to recruit individuals to form a terrorist cell and conduct an attack on American soil. He came under the guise of going to school in Missouri on a student visa. One of Nafis’ potential recruits was an FBI source, who alerted authorities, the FBI said. Continue reading this article

Presidential Debate #2: Obama Revives Arizona Racial Profiling Myth

It’s interesting how easily President Obama jumped to his comfortable fiction about Arizona’s state immigration law being all about racial profiling. It happened when the debate turned to illegal immigration:

Transcript of second presidential debate Published October 16, 2012

[. . . Gov Romney] called the Arizona law a model for the nation. Part of the Arizona law said that law enforcement officers could stop folks because they suspected maybe they looked like they might be undocumented workers and check their papers.

You know what? If my daughter or yours looks to somebody like they’re not a citizen, I don’t want — I don’t want to empower somebody like that. [. . .]

Did Obama, the former law professor, snooze through this year’s Supreme Court decision that allowed police to check immigration status during lawful encounters? There was never a provision of SB 1070 to do mass round-ups, but race profiling was the convenient lie the raza-tarians and compliant media used to spew the racism charge.

At least Obama didn’t repeat a favorite word picture, that of evil jack-booted police snatching up hispanic parents and kiddies strolling with ice cream cones:

“You can imagine if you are an Hispanic American in Arizona, your great grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state, but now suddenly if you don’t have your papers, and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re gonna be harassed,” Obama said, referring to the statute at a April rally in Iowa.

New York City: Senegalese Pleads Guilty to Murdering Italian Woman

On Monday, an immigrant from Senegal, 42-year-old Bakary Camara, pleaded guilty to murdering an Italian college student, Rita Morelli, 36, in New York City. The African’s excuse was that he was under an evil curse (a victim!), and even requested a local imam to be an expert witness on witchcraft at the trial, which the judge rejected.

Below, Rita Morelli was finishing up her BA degree at Hunter College when she was raped and stabbed to death by Bakary Camara.

It has not gone unnoticed that African foreigners bring their primitive beliefs in witchcraft when they relocate to the United States. However claiming a cultural justification for a brutal crime is also a convenient excuse for diverse persons when there is no defense at all.

DA: Suspect Charged In Murder Of Italian College Student Pleads Guilty, CBS New York, October 15, 2012

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The suspect charged in the 2011 rape and murder of an Italian college student whose body was found inside her East Harlem apartment has pleaded guilty, prosecutors announced Monday.

Bakary Camara, 42, pleaded guilty to all counts including murder, predatory sex assault and rape in connection with the death of 37-year-old Rita Morelli, prosecutors said.

On Nov. 23, 2011, Morelli was found murdered in her apartment on East 120th Street. Prosecutors said Camara entered the apartment, raped Morelli, stabbed her several times and then slashed her throat. Continue reading this article

London: Thousands of Muslims Protest Free Speech

In Britain, hostile Muslims made it abundantly clear that they don’t want to assimilate to the basic western principle of free speech, an integral part of representative government. An estimated ten thousand staged a protest against the Google office in Londonistan because the company owns Youtube which continues to to host a disliked video considered to be anti-Islam.

Below, unfriendly Islamics complained about free speech at London’s Google headquarters.

The complaints against the internet search engine are somewhat ironic, since many wanna-be jihadists have likely used Google to find bomb-making instructions or supplies. Some killers-for-Allah have self-radicalized using the internet, like Brooklyn high-school dropout Betim Kaziu who plotted to murder American soldiers and illegal alien aspiring Capitol bomber Amine El Khalifi. The web is huge part of the modern jihad against western civilization, and Google is a central component of the internet.

Great Britain used to be a more civilized place before they started the diverse immigration of Muslims. America will see the same sort of behavior if Muslim immigration is allowed to continue here.

Muslims protest ‘age of mockery’ as thousands descend on Google HQ, Daily Telegraph, October 14, 2012

Thousands of Muslims have pledged a series of protests against Google HQ for a “hateful and offensive” anti-Islam video, saying they now live in an “age of mockery”.

A protest by 10,000 Muslims outside the offices of Google in London today is just the first in an orchestrated attempt to force the company to remove an anti-Islamic film from website YouTube in Britain.

Thousands had travelled from as far afield as Glasgow to take part in the demonstration, ahead of a planned million-strong march in Hyde Park in coming weeks.

Anger over ‘The Innocence of Muslims’, an American-produced film which insults the Prophet Mohammad and demeans Muslims, according to protesters, remains available to watch on the website YouTube, a subsidiary of Google.

Organiser Masoud Alam said: “Our next protest will be at the offices of Google and YouTube across the world. We are looking to ban this film.

“This is not freedom of expression, there is a limit for that. This insult of the Prophet will not be allowed. Continue reading this article

Russian Reporter Visits Muslim Paris; Chaos and Danger Ensue

The reporter goes to the crime-ridden “no go” zones with a hidden camera, because filming openly would be unsafe among so much Muslim diversity.

Marine le Pen is interviewed briefly and says France must remove itself from the Schengen agreement to a borderless Europe before it can do anything about its immigration crisis.

The reporter is warning Russia to end further Muslim immigration — a message that America should heed.

Kennewick Man Unveiled! (Partially)

It was interesting to hear NPR’s radio report last night about Kennewick Man, who has been long disappeared from media reports and public discussions. The main thrust of the audio segment was of his athletic musculature, describing him as “all beefcake” and leaving out his racial identity entirely (read the transcript or listen to the audio).

(At that point, I hazarded a guess that the K-man was not a native American. Interestingly NPR’s online version of the story included the racial component and the photo shown here.)

You may recall that the accidental discovery of the remains in 1996 set off a series of cultural skirmishes, where native groups angrily insisted that Kennewick was one of their tribe and therefore should be buried ASAP. Scientists wanted to examine the remains to learn more about the identity of the man, and they finally prevailed in 2004, although the investigations have been severely limited because of cultural sensitivities.

Often the facts of pre-history are more complex and interesting than the standard story, and so it is in this case. The remains were of a man of Asian descent, possibly Polynesian, who are known to have been awesome sailors who traveled much of the Pacific. (For an overview of pre-Columbian explorations indicating how much early man got around, see the History Channel’s “Who Really Discovered America?”)

The information released so far is pretty sketchy, but is nevertheless fascinating. Hopefully more is coming.

Scientist says Kennewick Man not native to region, Associated Press, October 12, 2012

ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) — Not only was the ancient human known as Kennewick Man not Native American, he was not even from the Columbia River valley where his bones were found, according to the scientist who led the court battle to study his remains.

The more than 9,300-year-old skeleton is at the center of a yearslong rift between scientists who want to examine it and tribes who claim it and are seeking to have it reburied.

On Tuesday, Columbia Plateau tribal representatives invited Doug Owsley, a physical anthropologist at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History, to meet with them and discuss his findings.

Owsley said isotopes in the bones indicate Kennewick Man was a hunter of marine mammals, such as seals.

“They are not what you would expect for someone from the Columbia Valley,” he said at the gathering hosted by Central Washington University. “This is a man from the coast, not a man from here.”

While Owsley has noted before that Kennewick Man was not of Native American descent, this was the first time he’s said the man was not even from this area, The Seattle Times reported.

Owsley said the skull is most similar to an Asian coastal people whose characteristics are shared with people, later, of Polynesian descent. Continue reading this article

Sherman and Berman Get Physical over Amnesty Cred

Only in Mexifornia! Two dueling Democrats nearly came to blows over who is the better advocate of open borders and rewards for invasive foreigners against the well being of American citizens.

Actually, it was the younger taller Rep. Brad Sherman who put a modified headlock on the older shorter Rep. Howard Berman, with Sherman saying “Do you want to get into this?” But no noogies were forthcoming.

In particular, the two were arguing about which was more supportive of the dreadful DREAM Act amnesty for “young people” and whoever else can pass the age limitations.

Both are full-tilt shills of La Raza (aka “The Race” for all you English speakers), voting consistently in their lengthy House careers for illegal aliens. Howard Berman (a member of the House since 1983) has a lifetime voting grade of F from NumbersUSA. Brad Sherman (a member since 1997) has a lifetime voting grade of D from Numbers. So the differences between them are slight.

But the harsh reality of redistricting has brought them to the point of fierce arguments over which candidate can Mexicanize America faster and with increased costs to taxpayer citizens.

Interestingly, the open-borders gang piped up in the media over the following days to opine on who was better for their side.

The Jewish Journal of Greater LA presented a very lengthy item with headache-inducing detail, “Berman did write DREAM Act, immigration activists say, contradicting Sherman’s heated denials”.

More readable is The Hill‘s reporting, with liberal quotage from expert anti-sovereignty Congressman Luis Gutierrez (he of the amnesty bus tour).

Rep. Gutierrez defends Berman on DREAM Act, The Hill, October 12, 2012

Rep. Howard Berman (D-Calif.) received back-up from a fellow congressman after an argument about the DREAM Act spurred an altercation with Democratic rival Rep. Brad Sherman Thursday in California.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said there is no question that Berman introduced and took the lead on the bill that would grant citizenship to children brought to the country illegally if they enroll in college or join the military.
”When I am in Los Angeles next week campaigning for Howard Berman’s reelection, I will tell everyone that I support Howard Berman because of his authorship of the DREAM Act and the crucial, leadership role Howard Berman has played in every major piece of immigration legislation under consideration in the House.  Howard is our champion,” Gutierrez said in a statement.
Sherman accused Berman of taking credit for the DREAM Act, which he said was sponsored by Gutierrez at the debate at Pierce College.

“Luis Gutierrez introduced the bill. You didn’t. And the official records of Congress will prove you wrong,” Sherman shouted at one point.
However, Berman introduced the bill, which Sherman, Gutierrez and 114 other members cosponsored.  In the Republican-controlled House, the bill hasn’t made it out of committee. Continue reading this article

Report: Unlicensed Drivers Make Los Angeles Roads More Dangerous

In Los Angeles, unlicensed drivers (who are almost always illegal aliens) have been a source of criticism from public safety advocates because Mayor Villaraigosa and PD Chief Beck have been cutting them extra slack. The purpose of the permissiveness is to make life easier for foreign lawbreakers, and particularly to facilitate their driving to the jobs they have stolen from Americans.

Over the last several months, Chief Beck has weakened the policy of impounding the vehicles of unlicensed drivers from 30 days to one day, in violation of state law. He has also ended compliance with the federal Secure Communities program, by which already arrested illegal aliens in jail are handed over to ICE for deportation.

Clearly public safety is not a high priority for Los Angeles political leaders, particularly the mayor, when measured against the convenience of foreign lawbreakers.

Don Rosenberg, the father of a young man killed by an unlicensed driver has been an outspoken advocate using traditional ideas of policing and licensing to stop preventable deaths on the roads.

Below, Don Rosenberg holds a photo of his late son Drew, who was killed by an unlicensed driver.

To advance his cause of public safety on the roadways, Rosenberg has appeared on talk radio, given testimony before the California legislature, spoken at public forums and created a website

More recently he has written a well researched paper, Los Angeles Traffic Addressing Safety Issues.

Report: Illegal Drivers Behind High Hit-And-Run Rate In LA, CBS LA, October 11, 2012

LOS ANGELES ( — The number of hit-and-run accidents in Los Angeles is four times higher than the national average, with one in five fatal crashes involving an unlicensed driver, according to a new report.

Don Rosenberg, the founder of, told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO that an estimated 750,000 illegal immigrants live in the L.A. area and those who drive could pose “an immense threat to society”.

“The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reports unlicensed drivers are five times more likely to kill, they will flee the scene over 50 percent of the time, five times more likely to drive drunk,” said Rosenberg.

In a whitepaper compiling statistics of hit-and-run accidents, Rosenberg found that unlicensed drivers were involved in more than 7,600 fatal crashes — about 20 percent of fatal crashes nationwide.

There were an estimated 21,000 hit-and-run collisions that were reported as “accidents” in Los Angeles in 2010 alone, according to the study.

“In Los Angeles in terms of hit-and-runs, it’s way outside the norm,” said Rosenberg. “On a national level, there’s about 11 percent of traffic collisions end up being hit-and-runs…in Los Angeles, it’s 50 percent.” Continue reading this article

Mega Mosque Rises over Cologne

Concerned citizens of Cologne fought for years against the mega mosque planned by the local Soldiers of Allah. Now however the edifice is being built with foreign funding, and Germans are shocked at its size, although they shouldn’t be, since mega mosques are political structures designed to demonstrate Islam’s dominance.

The massive edifice, visible from blocks away, is being financed by the government of Turkey which is working to expand Islamic power in Europe. Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Erdogan periodically visits his Germany-residing tribe to remind them that their loyalty should be to their homeland and Islam, not to infidel nations. Just so there would be no misunderstanding, he declared in 2008 that “Assimilation is a crime against humanity.”

CBN’s Erick Stakelbeck traveled to Cologne to check it out:

The Cologne mosque debacle is yet another reminder that Muslim immigration is a one-way street to cultural and national security disaster. Diversity enthusiasts like to fantasize that Muslims assimilate well to America, which may be true of some but certainly not all. For example, Hamtramck Muslims steamrolled over local noise prohibitions to have the call to prayer (which is actually a prayer itself) with loudspeakers five times daily. Numerous Muslims have tried to mass-murder Americans for jihad, as shown by the many terror trials, little noticed by the mainstream media. Mike Mohamad Agemy, who drove his SUV into a group of Christians in Dearborn last June received probation just this week for attempted murder.

Anyway, back to Cologne, a canary in the coal mine of civilization jihad:

Turkish Mega Mosque in Germany Sparks Controversy, By Erick Stakelbeck, CBN News, October 11, 2012

COLOGNE, Germany — There was a time when the Turkish-led Ottoman Empire ruled over a large chunk of Europe. Now some believe the Turks want to bring back those old glory days.

The Turkish government has embarked on a mosque-building campaign throughout Germany.

One new Turkish mega-mosque, the Cologne Central Mosque, has Germans on edge.

When construction on the facility is completed, it will be Germany’s largest Muslim house of worship – and one of the largest mosques in all of Europe.

It’s so big that it stops passersby in their tracks. The structure’s 100-foot-high-plus minarets tower over the local landscape and can be seen from blocks away.

The $40 million-plus facility will hold at least 1,200 worshippers and include a restaurant, a prayer room, a library, and more.

Germany is home to some 4.3 million Muslims, including 125,000 who live in Cologne. The large majority are Turkish.

Although Cologne already has some 30 mosques, one German Muslim activist told CBN News the new facility is needed. Continue reading this article

Taliban's Attempted Murder of Education-Reformer Girl Gets Mainstream Attention

The Washington Post has put some reprehensible junk on its front page to promote diversity, but Wednesday’s edition was worthy of a great newspaper. It informed the American people of a terrible injustice, and shined a light on the murderous brutality of Islam toward women and girls. The liberal press hates to admit the inequality of cultures, but the facts of Islamic misogyny are irrefutable and burble out from time to time.

The shooting victim, 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai, was an outspoken blogger (albeit under a pseudonym) and advocate of education for girls, which is the reason for the Taliban’s fury.

Plus, the Taliban thugs promise that if Malala survives, they will shoot her again. Such is diversity in the Islamic world.

Shooting of Pakistani teen activist prompts outcry against extremism, Washington Post, October 10, 2012

ISLAMABAD — In a country where militant attacks occur almost daily, the Taliban’s attempted assassination of a 14-year-old education rights activist in northwestern Pakistan united Pakistanis from across social divides Wednesday in a remarkable and rare display of collective outrage against extremism.

The shooting Tuesday of Malala Yousafzai, who remains in critical condition in a Peshawar military hospital, brought condemnation from conservative clerics, secular politicians, the military and media figures at a time when Pakistanis had seemed almost numb to rising extremism.

More than 3,000 people died last year in extremist attacks here, but images of the bandaged, unconscious teenager prompted a national debate about the corrosive impact of Talibanization.

“The world image of Pakistan is, to put it mildly, not very good,” said Ijaz Khattak, a professor at the University of Peshawar who knows Yousafzai and her father, an educator and peace activist in Swat. “Society is seen as increasingly sympathetic to these terrorists. What this incident can prove to be is a catalyst, because the outrage can turn the tide against the religious fundamentalism.” Continue reading this article

Chairman Gallegly Excoriates ICE and Administration for Release of Loudmouth Alien

America used to be a nation of laws, but lately not so much, as ethnic lobbies have convinced the powerful that their tribes deserve special treatment. So we see the hypocrisy of Arizona being sued by the Justice Department for enforcing federal immigration law, but sanctuary cities like Los Angeles ignore national deportation strategies with impunity, because one party depends upon diverse voters to succeed.

Obama’s reduction of immigration enforcement is having the predictable effect of diminishing the respect for law. The DREAM scheme certainly suggests to unlawful entrants that almost anyone can claim junior immigrant status, so pass the hair dye and print up some fraudulent papers!

So it was a relief from the usual media fawning over foreign offenders to see the Chairman of the House Immigration Subcommittee hammer ICE’s permissive treatment of one of the most arrogant alien lawbreakers, the loudmouth scribbler activist Jose Antonio Vargas.

Filipino alien Vargas was the main cover boy for Time’s DREAMer-friendly issue.

Incidentally, one overlooked aspect of Vargas’ selfish journey to insinuating himself into American society was how he allowed his fellow high school students to be cheated out of a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Japan because of his illegal alien status:

My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant By JOSE ANTONIO VARGAS, New York Times, June 22, 2011

[. . .] After a choir rehearsal during my junior year, Jill Denny, the choir director, told me she was considering a Japan trip for our singing group. I told her I couldn’t afford it, but she said we’d figure out a way. I hesitated, and then decided to tell her the truth. “It’s not really the money,” I remember saying. “I don’t have the right passport.” When she assured me we’d get the proper documents, I finally told her. “I can’t get the right passport,” I said. “I’m not supposed to be here.”

She understood. So the choir toured Hawaii instead, with me in tow. (Mrs. Denny and I spoke a couple of months ago, and she told me she hadn’t wanted to leave any student behind.) [. . .]

So Vargas understood at the time, but didn’t remove himself so the other kids could have a special trip.

Today Jose Vargas is still Mr. Special, due to the enabling actions of the US government.

Rep. Gallegly rips ICE, Antonio Vargas, Politico, October 8, 2012

The chairman of a House subcommittee on immigration slammed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s handling of the arrest of journalist and activist Jose Antonio Vargas, saying Tuesday that the agency has set a dangerous precedent for dealing with undocumented immigrants.

“Jose Antonio Vargas is a classic example of how flawed the system is,” Rep. Elton Gallegly, a California Republican who chairs the Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement, told POLITICO. “He is just one of hundreds of thousands that are ignored, and what that does is, it sends a signal that we’re not serious about certain laws.”

Gallegly’s comments came after Vargas was arrested on Friday — and later released — after allegedly committing a driving infraction in Minnesota. ICE was notified because Vargas, who went public in The New York Times Magazine last year with his status as an undocumented immigrant, provided a canceled driver’s license, according to a Minnesota state patrol spokesman. But the agency took no action, telling POLITICO in a statement Monday that ICE “prioritizes the removal of public safety threats, recent border crossers and egregious immigration law violators.” ICE declined to comment further on Tuesday.

Vargas has said that in the past, he altered documents in order to be eligible for work in the United States, and has since had driver’s licenses revoked after his story raised questions. Gallegly said that such doctoring is a felony, and blasted ICE for not holding Vargas accountable when the agency was alerted to his case. Continue reading this article

Obama Opens Cesar Chavez National Monument

On Monday, the President’s main campaign chore, other than collecting millions of dollars in California fundraisers, was to dedicate a hispander-specific national monument to honor Cesar Chavez, the late labor organizer. In recent years, Chavez has been rejiggered by the raza gang into an open-borders enthusiast, which he was not, since scab foreign workers undermined his efforts to raise wages for his guys. (See Cesar Chavez, Minuteman by Steve Sailer for the complex history of the man.)

In the present day, invoking the name of Chavez has become a big rallying point for hispanics residing in America, because no other leader has emerged from their community. Rep Luis Gutierrez has applied for the job of immigration messiah, with little success, despite energetic stunts like his amnesty bus tours.

At Monday’s event, the President led Spanish cheers of “Si se puede” to the appreciative crowd. He would like to be seen as Obamez by the group, at least through the election.

Obama dedicates Cesar Chavez National Monument, Los Angeles Times, October 8, 2012

KEENE, Calif. – President Obama’s stop in this remote and sparsely populated San Joaquin Valley town was about as far off the campaign trail as a candidate could be so close to an election. But his message as he dedicated the Cesar E. Chavez National Monument was not without political significance, as he honored the legacy of a civil rights and labor leader whose “si se puede” credo was an inspiration for his own historic campaign four years ago.

Speaking on the 187-acre property that served as both home and operational headquarters for Chavez and his United Farm Workers movement, Obama said Chavez’s tenacity on behalf of a new generation of workers was part of “the story of who we are as Americans,” meriting such a tribute alongside other national monuments like the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon.

“It’s a story of natural wonders and modern marvels, of fierce battles and quiet progress. But it’s also a story of people, of determined, fearless, hopeful people who have always been willing to devote their lives to making this country a little more just and a little more free,” Obama said.

Monday’s event was the sole official stop on a three-day, campaign-heavy trip, sandwiched between fundraising stops in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The designation means that taxpayers fund a portion of the president’s travel, while his campaign pays costs associated with his political travel.

Even without the banners reading “Forward,” his 2012 reelection slogan, and Marine band anthems replacing the usual campaign soundtrack, the electoral significance was clear.

Arturo S. Rodriguez, the president of the United Farm Workers, noted in his introduction of the president that Obama adopted Chavez’s “belief in ‘Si se puede.’ ”

“And when he was elected, he used his power to say yes,” Rodriguez said, before listing the appointment of Latino Cabinet secretaries (both of whom attended Monday’s event), a first Latina Supreme Court justice, and his support for a deferred action program that allows young undocumented workers to remain in the United States.

With time an increasingly precious commodity in a race that has shown new volatility after a long period of stasis, Obama is leaning on all the levers available to him for an advantage, including perhaps his biggest weapon: incumbency.

The dedication of the Cesar Chavez National Monument came not through legislative action but executive authority under the Antiquities Act. Though White House officials said it was a process long in the making, the formal dedication came as Obama’s campaign shifts toward a more intensive get-out-the-vote phase of its operation, one that includes a major focus on the Latino vote and will be augmented by labor muscle.
