Mexifornia: The Future Is Closer

California’s non-American destiny is rushing toward us, as a new demographic fact was recently plopped out by state statisticians: the majority of public school students are now hispanic.

Doubtless, hispanic supremacist Jorge Ramos will be thrilled with the news; he’s the broadcast talking head who predicted, “In other words, Latinos are not only the largest minority right now, but eventually we will be the majority in the United States, and the process is well underway.”

The demographic change is beyond underway in California. America should be forewarned about what’s coming unless the borders are enforced and legal immigration is substantially curtailed.

Latino kids now majority in state’s public schools, San Francisco Chronicle, November 13, 2010

Latinos now make up a majority of California’s public school students, cracking the 50 percent barrier for the first time in the state’s history, according to data released Friday by the State Department of Education.

Almost 50.4 percent of the state’s students in the 2009-10 school year identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino, up 1.36 percent from the previous year.

In comparison, 27 percent of California’s 6.2 million students identified themselves as white, 9 percent as Asian and 7 percent as black. Students calling themselves Filipino, Pacific Islander, Native American or other total almost 7 percent.

While the result was no surprise to educators, experts say the shift underscores the huge impact Latinos already have on California’s politics, economy and school system.

No mention is made of how many parents who can afford private school avoid the diversity of public classrooms. The Chronicle reported a few years ago that a substantial level of parents in ultra-liberal San Francisco chose private education despite the cost:

Many reluctantly choose private schools, San Francisco Chronicle, May 31, 2006

In San Francisco, families choose private and religious schools in higher proportion than in any other major city in the country.

Last year, 29.3 percent of the city’s school-age population went to private or religious schools. About 10 percent of children nationwide and 8.7 percent of those in California attend private or parochial schools. Marin County has the second-highest rate in the state at 18.7 percent, followed by San Mateo at 15.4 percent and Napa at 13.4 percent.

Still, the basic point remains: California has been overwhelmed by Spanish-speaking illegal aliens and immigrants. As a result, the society has been remade, from a conservative bastion a few decades ago to a crazy-blue state now.

A sign of the population shift is the growing intimidation unleashed by ungrateful “immigrants” who remain loyal to Mexico et al. One example is the Turlock boy who was told to remove an American flag from his bike because school administrators feared how the hispanic students would react.

However, American values prevailed for the time being, after a ruckus was raised.

School Reverses Course After Ordering Student to Remove American Flag From Bike, Fox News, November 12, 2010

A California school has done a U-turn after it forced a student to remove an American flag attached to his bike, saying the Stars and Stripes could spur racial tensions on campus. [. . .]

Superintendent Edward Parraz says the school was trying to avoid racial tensions that stemmed from a “little issue” that arose when Hispanic students brought Mexican flags to school on Cinco De Mayo.

That’s right. The school administration fears violence from Mexican students when their ethnic tantrums do not receive adequate pandering. Diversity is beginning to look a lot like chaos in California.

Democrats Plan Sneak Amnesty for Lame Duck Session

The Democratic leadership team of Pelosi and Reid has payoffs in mind to drag the stealth amnesty DREAM Act into the lame duck session. Tribal hispanics are demanding their reward for voting against American law and sovereignty in the recent election (helping to elect Harry Reid for example). Senator Reid promised on Univision that he would bring the legislation to a vote in the Senate, despite the objections of the American people to rewarding lawbreakers. The Senator already attached the DREAM Act to the defense spending bill without success.

The bill is not limited to sob-story students who claim to aim for medical school etc., but is a Christmas tree of goodies for lawbreakers of all ages. See NumbersUSA’s Fact Sheet for details.

The post-election lame duck session customarily has dealt with only non-controversial issues, but pols like Pelosi and Reid are willing to trash tradition for a substantial amnesty to create millions of future grateful Democrats.

Pelosi wants DREAM Act vote, Politico, November 10, 2010 06:06 PM EST

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to push for a vote during the lame-duck session on a bill that would legalize young, undocumented immigrants if they attend college or serve in the military, according to Democratic sources familiar with a leadership conference call Wednesday.

A vote on the bill, known as the DREAM Act, could come as early as next week, the sources said. Pelosi asked Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.) and Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) to assess the mood of the caucus, according to one source.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) had previously announced that he plans to bring up the DREAM Act during the lame duck session. His spokesman said Wednesday that Reid still hopes to call a vote.

It doesn’t seem likely that schemer Dems can jam this atrocity through, but never underestimate the legislative tricks of Pelosi and Reid. We should phone our Congress person to condemn the treacherous DREAM Act anyway, if for no other reason than to let them know we citizens haven’t stopped watching just because the election is over.

Remember Mark Twain’s warning: “No man’s life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session.”

Rep Steve King (R-IA) commented on the legislation’s possibilities:

The George Bush Revisionism Tour

I hope the Republicans don’t go entirely loony with adoration of George Bush during his book tour. The temptation is there because even though Bush wasn’t much of a conservative given his open-borders policies, globalist tendencies and do-gooder deficit spending (e.g. $48 billion for AIDS treatment in Africa), no one thought he was a socialist, unlike the present occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

My articles called GWB the Mexichurian President because of his loathsome pandering toward our hostile neighbor. Bush bent over backwards to help gangster Mexicans even if it meant persecuting American law-enforcement officers, as in the case of Border Patrol agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos, who were unjustly railroaded to prison for shooting a drug smuggler by the Bush administration. Bush finally commuted their sentences on the last day of his presidency, after they had served two years.

The mellow Bush routine hasn’t made Rep Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) forget either, as he recently tweeted (noted by The Hill):

Bush not class act, destroyed GOP, jailed Ramos & Compean, left us bailouts, gave more power to fed gov & China.

George Bush was interviewed by Rush Limbaugh on November 9, and you can see the rewrite of history being generated. Bush says he never was for amnesty, just something identical to it.

Transcript Excerpt — RushLimbaugh.com

PRESIDENT BUSH: I think the federal government ought to have a comprehensive immigration law and the fact there isn’t one caused Arizona to react.  And, as you know, I laid out a comprehensive plan that I believed would work when I was president. I still believe it will work, and in the book I talk about that decision to try to get legislation passed.

RUSH:  What was the objective of that legislation? What were you trying to accomplish with your comprehensive immigration reform because many people thought it was amnesty and they opposed it.

PRESIDENT BUSH: No, I know, and that’s what happens a lot of times these issues get labeled and people react poorly.  I couldn’t have said it more plainly: I was against amnesty. I don’t know many people who were for amnesty when it comes time for comprehensive reform. I’m sure there’s some, but, you know, all that would do if you granted amnesty is encourage the next wave to come.  I was trying to basically recognize that our economy required immigrants to work.  I mean, there’s a lot of jobs Americans won’t do and therefore there needed to be an orderly, legal way for people to come and work on a temporary basis and that if you’d paid your taxes and had been here for a while and were a good citizen you had a chance to become a citizen, but you had to get at the back of the line.  It was a plan that I felt addressed the issue in a good way.  There is no plan — obviously there’s no plan, a comprehensive plan — yet, and therefore states like Arizona are reacting.

RUSH:  The politics of it, though. Many people feared the Democrats simply wanted to register all these people as new Democrat voters.  They weren’t concerned about any compassion; they weren’t concerned about labor markets or any of that.  They just saw an avenue for more Democrat votes and registration, and when Republicans are going along with it, people are pulling their hair out saying, “Why do we want to help the Democrats in their political efforts?”

PRESIDENT BUSH: No. I know, I know. Look, a lot of people view things through a political lens.  I thought it was good policy, though — and not all Democrats were for it on Capitol Hill, either, I might add.  Anyway, it’s still an issue and needs to be solved at some point in time.

Obama Embraces His Muslim Roots in Asia

I’m not one who believes that Barack Hussein Obama is a secret Muslim, although I do believe he is unduly friendly toward Islam for someone who claims to be a Christian. More likely is that BHO is an arrogant globalist who sees the differences between Islam and less bloodthirsty religions as no big deal.

Like his predecessor in the White House, Obama has difficulty with naming Islam as Western Civilization’s millennial enemy. That presents a problem in leadership, namely the inability (or refusal) to focus the nation’s attention on the stubbornness of Islamic jihad that seeks to crush freedom and institute a worldwide sharia state.

Anyway, Asia-phiilic Obama abjured religious diversity while touring India, visiting only an Islamic monument, as noted in Jihadwatch:

Obama visiting Muslim shrine in India — no plans to visit Hindu, Buddhist, or other shrines

Obama is visiting Humayan’s Tomb. Nasir ud-din Muhammad Humayun was a sixteenth-century Mughal emperor, whose empire encompassed modern-day Pakistan, Afghanistan, and parts of northern India.

He is visiting, in other words, a Muslim shrine. He has no plans to visit any holy places of the Sikhs (such as the Golden Temple, Amritsar), or any Hindu holy places, Buddhist holy places, or Jain holy places. Nor does he plan to visit Nariman house, the Chabad house in Mumbai that was the chief target of the jihad mass-murderers who killed 173 people in November 2008.

Once again, Obama manifests a solicitude for Islam that he wouldn’t dream of extending to other faiths.

Humayan’s Tomb is very nice looking architecturally, no question:

Did I mention that Obama has a fondness for the “Religion of Peace”?

Barack Obama joined Muslim prayers at school, teacher says, The Australian, November 8, 2010

The US President’s former grade three teacher said that Mr Obama – who was known as “Barry” when he attended the Menteng One school in Jakarta – studied the Koran and went to classes on Islam, despite the objections of Ann Dunham, a Catholic.

The teacher’s recollections will add to speculation about Mr Obama’s links to Islam during his much-anticipated visit to Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, as part of his ten-day tour of Asia.

His middle name, Hussein, and the fact that his stepfather was a Muslim, have combined to perpetuate rumours about Mr Obama’s religious leanings. The number of Americans who think that he is a Muslim has grown since his inauguration to one in five.

Muslim Hostiles Continue to Head for the Border

It’s not exactly news that wanna-be terrorists view America’s sieve-like southern border as a convenient door to their jihadist ambitions. The Mexican drug cartels already have a well established smuggling infrastructure and are happy to share for a price.

One example from 2006 was the supposed illegal Mexican Miguel Alfonso Salinas, who turned out to be Ayman Sulmane Kamal, a Muslim from Egypt (Links between illegal immigration, terrorism, drug trade worry U.S officials). There are clearly many more like him who are vaguely categorized as OTMs (other than Mexicans) and SIAs (Special Interest Aliens) for the potentially nasty ones.

Another example was the brief report last May of hundreds of Somali al-Shabaab members crossing the border into the US (Feds Issue Terror Watch for the Texas/Mexico Border).

However, Washington doesn’t want us little citizens to worry over this obvious threat to national security, so the government honchos strenuously pretend open borders are not a problem to protecting the country. It’s nice that occasional reporters are curious about the issue…

Channel 2 Uncovers Proof Terrorists Crossed Mexican Border, WSB-TV Atlanta, November 1, 2010

ATLANTA — The U.S. Border Patrol has captured thousands of people they say are classified as OTM which stands for “other than Mexican.” Documents show many of them are from terrorists nations like Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan and Yemen. Federal authorities call those groups SIAs, which stands for “special interest aliens”.

Federal officials have offered few details about the number of actual terrorists caught along the border.

Retired immigration agent Michael Cutler says the actual threat is being covered up. “Incredibly the government is attempting to keep the citizens like a bunch of mushrooms. Keep us in the dark and feed us a bunch of manure.”

Government officials have denied that terrorists have crossed our open border. Still, Channel 2 Action News has proof they have. Channel 2 Anchor Justin Farmer found documents filed in federal court in San Antonio, Texas, in May. They show an indictment against Ahmed Muhammad Dhakane for allegedly smuggling hundreds of people from Brazil to Mexico, then into the U.S. The federal indictment states it includes some Somalis from the terrorist group Al Shabob. Terrorism experts say the group is responsible for terrorist attacks and suicide bombings worldwide.

“To this day we do not know where those 300 Somalis are,” said Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas. “We do know they are in the United States.”

A 2009 Government Accounting Office report confirmed agents have picked up three known terrorists who crossed the southwestern border of the United States. No other information was released.

“There are many people not only being apprehended, but slipping through the cracks on our southern flank that are very dangerous,” said McCaul.

Intelligence officials have admitted on record there is a terrorism threat. In 2007, former National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell told the El Paso Times that terrorists have been crossing the border. He said there are many situations where people are alive today because the terrorists were caught.

Sheriffs along the southwestern U.S. border also are aware of the threat.

“There is (intelligence) we have that is very troubling”, said Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County, Ariz. “Things are not getting better, they are getting worse.”

Interestingly, the text closely followed the video version, but left out the final sentences asked by reporter Justin Farmer:

“And we ask why all the secrecy surrounding the terror threat? Some critics say it’s politics and centers around the debate over amnesty for illegals.”

Here is a follow-up report from WSB about the low arrest goals of DHS (Channel 2 Raises Questions About Border Security):

CAIR Apparatchik Sues Oklahoma over Sharia Ban

The voters agreed by a large majority that Islamic law has no place in Oklahoma, now or ever. But the ballots were hardly counted when terrorist-affiliated Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) declared a lawsuit against the people.

Some (many?) Muslim immigrants insist upon their alien ideology, based upon the idea of a worldwide caliphate. They are not a group desirous of joining the American community — a fact which becomes more clear every day. For example, the hostility underlying the Ground Zero mosque project is typical, not an aberration.

Keep in mind that sharia views women and infidels as inherently inferior. Death is the normal punishment for apostasy, homosexuality and adultery. It is a system of primitive cruelty — amputations and stoning are common — from ancient Arabia that should not be allowed in the west in any way.

A lawsuit against a very popular initiative is no way to win friends and influence people, but CAIR seems unable to function in any other way. Polling about Muslims shows growing suspicion over time.

Oklahoma Is Sued Over Shariah Ban, Wall Street Journal, November 5, 2010

A Muslim activist in Oklahoma City filed a lawsuit Thursday challenging a voter-approved measure that bars Oklahoma state judges from considering Shariah, the Islamic religious code based on the Koran and the Prophet Mohammed’s teachings, in formulating rulings.

State Question 755, which passed Tuesday with 70% of the vote, declares “the legal precepts of other nations or cultures” off-limits to Oklahoma courts. “Specifically, the courts shall not consider international law or Sharia Law,” it reads.

The suit, filed by Muneer Awad, director of the state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, asks the federal district court to block officials from certifying the referendum. Mr. Awad says the measure violates the First Amendment, which protects “free exercise” of religion and prohibits official “establishment of religion.” A hearing was set for Monday.

The complaint alleges Oklahoma has singled out Islam for “profound stigma,” consigning Muslims such as Mr. Awad “to an ineffectual position within the political community.”

The Oklahomans are merely exercising reasonable caution. When Muslim immigrants are admitted in large numbers, then brutal, misogynous sharia law is sure to follow, as Europeans have learned the hard way:

Britain has 85 sharia courts: The astonishing spread of the Islamic justice behind closed doors, Daily Mail, June 29, 2009

At least 85 Islamic sharia courts are operating in Britain, a study claimed yesterday.

The astonishing figure is 17 times higher than previously accepted.

The tribunals, working mainly from mosques, settle financial and family disputes according to religious principles. They lay down judgments which can be given full legal status if approved in national law courts.

It’s a slippery slope, particularly when authorities are politically correct weasels, afraid to enforce the law of the people.

Here’s James Woolsey on the Oklahoma case.

Straight Talk from Donald Trump about Jobs and the Economy

An interview with the hotel magnate has far more common sense about employment and trade than anything you hear out of Washington, where everyone talks up creating jobs but with no specifics about how.

China is manipulating currency to its great advantage, Trump says, and is exploiting American weakness. His recommendation: we should tax Chinese goods to level the playing field and thereby bring back some of the manufacturing jobs that have been outsourced.

So-called “free” trade has been a disaster for American employment for years, but Trump is one of the few figures in public life who will say so.

Amnesty Boosters Not Dismayed!

Over in post-election Traitorville, amnesty hucksters are still babbling along, as if America had full employment and there were no Tea Party patriots demanding responsible government. The message is the same old, even though the playing field has changed dramatically.

Roy Beck’s analysis of the new Congress is very cheering indeed. He reports, “I’m not sure there has been a Congress since 1924 — and certainly not in the last 50 years — that had a membership more interested in reductions in overall illegal and legal immigration than will be the one that was elected yesterday.” Sweet!

Nevertheless, the Usual Suspects continue to spin up a storm. Tamar Jacoby is an old treason warhorse who never saw an American border she didn’t want to erase. Despite setbacks for her side, she is sounding quite chipper. Turn those enforcement lemons into anarchy lemonade!

Immigration reform is still doable, CNN, November 4, 2010

Many Americans watching election returns Tuesday night thought they heard a door clanging shut. Certainly on immigration reform, among other causes, the conventional wisdom is grim: There’s no hope of passage in the wake of big Republican gains in Congress.

Maybe — but maybe not. We won’t know until the new Congress convenes in January, if then. And the chances of movement, on immigration and many other issues, will depend less on where the parties stand now or what candidates said on the campaign trail than on whether members of Congress can relearn the lost art — not seen for several sessions now — of compromising to make deals on bipartisan legislation. [. . .]

Nothing will happen unless Democrats are willing to swallow hard and accept provisions, particularly enforcement provisions, that they would have rejected out of hand just a few weeks ago. And the House Judiciary Committee, now controlled by immigration hardliners Lamar Smith of Texas, and Steve King of Iowa, will be a particularly difficult battleground.

But that doesn’t mean there’s no hope. Lawmakers can’t avoid the issue entirely. If nothing else, they will be under pressure to strengthen enforcement, both on the border and in the workplace.

And with the right spirit of compromise, that impulse could lead to something broader. Members of both parties will be focusing on the economy. Jobs will be a universal theme. And as the economy starts to grow, it will get harder to ignore the role that immigrants play in creating jobs — not just with innovation and business start-ups, but also by providing a low-end labor force that supports U.S. workers on the middle rungs of the job ladder.

Why should there be “compromise” at all, by which Jacoby means amnesty for millions of lawbreaking job thieves? Rewarding people for spitting on American sovereignty is not the proper message to send.

The correct response to massive, systemic wrongdoing is punishment, not enrichment for miscreants. Negative reinforcement should be the strategy.

Speaking of job creation, Kiplinger opined recently, “It’s likely to take five or more years for the ranks of the long-term unemployed to return to a more normal level,” which sounds optimistic to me. Transforming millions of illegal aliens into legal workers is the most damaging thing the government could do to the many citizens who are suffering in this terrible economy.

Post-Election, Day One and Going Forward

Tuesday’s election was quite a mix, with disappointing losses (like Tom Tancredo), but also with some encouraging wins of candidates and ideas.

In Oklahoma, voters prudently approved a measure to prevent sharia law being used there. Some might ask whether Islamic law is now a problem in the Sooner state; it is not, which is why the present is the perfect time to declare Oklahoma’s allegiance to America’s Constitution and disapproval of barbaric sharia.

No good deed goes unpunished, however; the busy lawyers at the Council on American Islamic Relations immediately announced a lawsuit against Oklahoma. If the CAIR bears think they are winning friends and influencing people, they are not. They are only generating even more hostility among citizens.

Further east, the Mayor of Hazelton Pennsylvania, Lou Barletta, was successful in his third try to unseat Democrat Paul Kanjorski, a 13-term incumbent. Barletta received national attention starting in 2006 when he led a movement for legislation to make his town unfriendly to illegal aliens.

In Florida, Lt Col. Allen West easily won his second race against incumbent Ron Klein in a majority Democrat district. West became an internet star when his patriotic speeches that warned about jihad began getting attention via Youtube. The man will bring a rare honesty about hostile Islam to Washington which has been sadly lacking, as shown by the political correctness of the Pentagon about the Fort Hood massacre, to name one egregious example.

Arizona Law Defended in the Courts and on the Streets

Your humble correspondent attended the Ninth Circuit Court in San Francisco Monday morning for the federal government’s continuing suit against the state of Arizona’s tough immigration law. As a non-lawyer, I found the proceedings interesting, although somewhat mysterious, given all the legalistic shorthand referring to previous cases and numbers of sections within the Arizona law in question.

A local reporter thought the judges sounded largely amenable to Arizona’s position:

Court signals backing for Arizona immigration law, San Francisco Chronicle, Nov. 1, 2010

A federal appeals court appeared willing Monday to reinstate, but weaken, a central provision of an Arizona law allowing police to stop and question suspected illegal immigrants.

A three-judge panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals indicated that it would authorize police to demand papers from those they reasonably suspected of being in the country illegally, but would not allow authorities to arrest or prosecute them under state law.

That would still allow suspects to be referred to U.S. authorities for deportation, however.

What good is the law if officers cannot arrest the bad guys?

When I spoke with Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce after the proceeding, he thought that the court sounded split over the four provisions being contested; i.e. would okay two but were negative toward two others. At any rate, he was convinced the law would end up in the Supreme Court. No surprise there.

As Senator Pearce has pointed out again and again, “It is the first time in the history of the United States a sitting President has sided with a foreign government” — Mexico in particular, although many Latin countries filed briefs against Arizona and American sovereignty. One court watcher recently declared, “Mexico is very upset about this law.” No doubt it is.

While I was inside quietly immersing my mind with legal principles, a large mob of open-borders troublemakers arrived and closed down the street in front of the courthouse with their shenanigans. My friend and colleague Rick Oltman described the motley scene: SB 1070, the 9th Circus, patriots, anarchists… all the usual suspects, SF Examiner Blog, Nov 2, 2010.

(The photos below are my own, except where noted.)

Fortunately, there were border patriots there to oppose the thugsters. Ray Herrera and Robin Hvidston drove all the way from southern California to support Arizona, and dozens of local folks were in attendance, such as the Golden Gate Minutemen. Below is Ray with Senator Pearce and Rick Oltman:

Ray got into a disagreement with a Raza anarchist, as caught by AP:

I noticed a lot of kids present for 11 am Monday morning. I asked one blonde boy why so many kids were there, and he said it was a project from King Middle School in Berkeley. What’s up with that? Training little Raza Marxists?

(Speaking of indoctrinating children, I was privileged to meet School Superintendent Tom Horne — who is running for Arizona Attorney General — on the courthouse steps, who shut down the Tucson schools’ “ethnic studies” scam, which brainwashed hispanic kids with treasonous Raza propaganda about American evil BS, on the taxpayer’s dime. See my May blog, Raza Racists Angered at Arizona’s Ethnic Studies Prohibitions.)

Below are some of the kids indoctrinated into anti-borders ideology.

Rick Oltman got a lot of attention with his Bite Me flag, including being photographed by the Associated Press, below. (If you want a similar flag or other items with that cool design, definitely check out Arizona Bite Me for the real stuff.)

There were plenty of glouligans present, which I thought wasn’t a terribly attractive way to show up, and then I remembered that Nov 1 is the Day of the Dead for Mexicans, so it was a diversity thing. (Feeling culturally enriched yet?)

What’s a Raza rally without a big-feathered guy who fancies himself a new Aztec? Fortunately, no sacrifices were forthcoming.

Oh, and religious types were there in abundance. They are the delusionaries who believe their dreamy trust in pursuing open borders makes them more virtuous than defenders of law and sovereignty. Peace and love! One world!

Below is a photo taken of pro-borders demonstrators taken after many people had left, so it understates the number of friends of American sovereignty, who were outnumbered several-fold by seditionists throughout the morning. However, a credible statement was made, particularly in loony-left San Francisco.

Pro-Jihad Singer Performs with Liberal Icons

My attention was certainly grabbed while watching the “Restore Sanity” rally on C-SPAN Saturday when Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens until he went Islamic) was welcomed to the stage to do a little number. “Restore Sanity and/or Fear” was the semi-comedic performance on the Mall on Saturday by Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart to um, promote civility in public discourse, or something like that.

Interestingly, when Jon Stewart introduced the singer, he couldn’t bring himself to say the singer’s full name, just saying “Joseph, or as it is also pronounced, Yusuf.” Or maybe that’s just the stage name, and the musician finds that leaving out the “Islam” part results in better recording sales.

Yusuf Islam wrote and performed some fine songs back when he was Cat Stevens, but his conversion to Islam included support for the murderous fatwa against novelist Salman Rushdie. Even the New York Times noted Yusuf Islam’s approval in 1989: Cat Stevens Gives Support To Call for Death of Rushdie.

Colbert and Stewart are a couple of clowns who are not as smart as they think, but well express the liberal zeitgeist of disappointment that their hero Obama is turning out to be a false prophet. Yet they cling to diversity beyond all reason, as shown by the Yusuf Islam shenanigans. Their pushing the idea that America has no enemies among Islamics and elsewhere is bad craziness. Multiculturalism is being shown to be another failed ideology, particularly in Europe, but they haven’t heard the news at Comedy Central that kumbaya hasn’t worked among hostile Muslims.

What has happened to liberalism anyway? Leaders like Harry Truman and FDR knew an enemy when they saw one and responded appropriately to protect the American people. Today’s President pursues senseless Islamic outreach strategies, like his hubris-filled speech in Cairo and his absurd effort to turn NASA into a Muslim-self-esteem project. Obama made a point of voicing his support for the widely despised Ground Zero mosque. And BHO is leaving November 5 for a trip to Southeast Asia: Obama sets Muslim outreach for Indonesia trip, which promises to have many cringe-worthy moments of anti-Americanism from the President.

It’s a tough world out there, particularly where Islam is concerned. Pacifism only creates a nation of sheep, ready for the slaughter.

Dirty Harry Promises Lame Duck DREAM Act to Univision

The Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, has entered the major Hispander zone by telling Latino invader Jorge Ramos that he would jam through the stealth amnesty known as the DREAM Act before the newly elected legislators take their seats.

The President lobbed a pre-hint last week when he said he was a “big supporter of the DREAM Act” — also on Spanish-language media.

The DREAM Act pretends to be a benefit just for illegal alien college students, dragged here as innocent toddlers by border-violating parents. It is nothing like that. A DREAM Act fact sheet from NumbersUSA notes that the Senate bill’s age limit is 35, and the House version has no age limit at all. Plus, once an alien files an amnesty application, he or she cannot be removed from the United States for any reason until the application is fully processed.

Pushing the DREAM Act may just be another idle promise from a desperate Democrat, because the Lame Duck session normally doesn’t work on anything controversial. However, Obama would love to have an amnesty payoff to reward to his dissatisfied Mexican base, if such a thing can be arranged.

Harry Reid Promises Senate Will Hold A Vote On The DREAM Act In Lame-Duck Session, Huffington Post, October 29, 2010

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has promised to bring the DREAM Act, an important piece of legislation for the Latino community, to a vote in the Senate after the November elections — whether or not Democrats retain their majority.

Reid’s remarks will air Sunday on Univision in an interview with host Jorge Ramos. On Twitter, Ramos wrote, “Harry Reid told me that, win or lose, he will present again the Dream Act in the Senate after the elections.”

The Huffington Post confirmed Reid’s remark with a Democratic source, who said that the exact timeline hasn’t yet been worked out. The source noted that because the federal government is operating under a continuing resolution, the first order of business will likely be approving new funding, as well as approving a large number of Obama nominees who have been blocked by Republicans. But the source confirmed that Reid’s answer to Ramos on whether he will bring up the DREAM Act was an “unequivocal yes.”

Immigration advocates praised the news that the DREAM Act will receive a chance for passage in the lame-duck session of Congress.

“The DREAM Act would give a group of young immigrants here without immigration status through no fault of their own the chance to attend college, serve in the military and earn citizenship,” said Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice. “These valedictorians, future scientists and future soldiers are Americans in all but paperwork, and we are thrilled that Senator Reid is committed to moving this common-sense measure before the end of the year.”

Right, there are so many hispanic valedictorians among the half who don’t drop out of high school. Oh well, they can always get a GED in Spanish.

Reid publicly announcing just a few days before the election that he will push the DREAM Act is quite bold and politically risky. In his tight re-election contest, Republican Sharron Angle has repeatedly gone after Reid for his support of comprehensive immigration reform, with a series of controversial ads including the new “Harry Reid’s Amnesty Game”.

Thanks, HuffPo, for mentioning the clever Harry Reid’s Amnesty Game — check it out and be sure to Roll The Dice.

Harry wants to keep ’em coming — future Democrats!
