This is multiculturalism

It amazes me that many of the loudest voices for ‘women’s rights’ are also thrilled to be welcoming in tens of thousands of refugees invaders for whom cutting up a little girl’s privates is a common practice:

Opposition from some members of Minnesota’s immigrant and refugee communities is slowing the momentum of a bill that would impose stiff penalties for parents involved in cases of female genital mutilation.

Since the bill’s near-unanimous passage in the Minnesota House this week, some longtime critics of the ritual have met with senators, lobbied the governor’s office and handed out fliers — all to raise alarm about the legislation…

Now, the author of the Senate version is voicing second thoughts about approving the legislation yet this session, though Senate GOP leadership have not committed to a course of action. “We all agree this practice is absolutely horrible, and something needs to be done,” said the author, Sen. Karin Housley. “How can we empower communities to address this practice from within rather than having Big Brother come down and say, ‘This is wrong?’ ”

Short answer: you can’t.  Which is why different communities with different values need to live in different areas.  Female genital mutilation is a common practice in the Muslim world (especially in Somalia, where many of the new ‘migrants’ to Minnesota are coming from), and no amount of “empowering” of the community is likely to change that.  Since values are so difficult to change, you’re left with changing external behavior — and thus the need for Big Brother.  Don’t think for a moment our nation’s elites aren’t aware of that.  How better to grow government than as the arbiter of incompatible cultures?

The fact there is newsworthy opposition to this bill (which normally would be a shoe-in under the “it’s for the children” and “grrrrl power” rules of politics) shows how much alien influence already exists in our land.  Does anyone think it gets better from here?

We open our doors to anyone who wants in, but refuse to insist that “when in America, one follows traditional American values.”  (Of course, the retort to that is “who defines traditional American values,” to which I simply say “those who know their history better than their Alinsky.”)

Close.  The.  Borders.  Now.

Deport.  The.  Invaders.  NOW.

And imprison or deport their domestic enablers.

Let’s connect the (measles) dots

It seems Minnesota is experiencing its worst outbreak of measles in three decades:

Health officials in Minnesota are tackling the worst measles outbreak in nearly 30 years. Most of those with the disease are unvaccinated Somali-American children in the state, which has the largest Somali population in the country.

Minnesota’s health commissioner says the community has been targeted with misinformation about vaccine risks. ((by whom? Their Imams, perhaps? — Jemison))

At Children’s Minnesota, doctors are treating 34 of the state’s 48 confirmed cases. Because measles is incredibly contagious, everyone who enters the hospital is provided a mask. If you don’t have the vaccine that prevents measles, there’s a 90 percent chance that you’ll contract the virus, reports CBS News correspondent Jamie Yuccas.

So in essence, after decades spent eradicating many diseases in the U.S. and developing group immunity, we’ve allowed them to return via unvaccinated immigrants (many of whom, I bet, are not here legally). Meanwhile, after 15 deportations (no, that’s not a typo), an illegal alien managed to nearly kill a family in a drunken hit-and-run that left a young child seriously injured:

A drunken driving suspect in a hit-and-run crash that severely injured a 6-year-old boy in San Ysidro over the weekend had been deported from the U.S. at least 15 times, authorities said Tuesday.

Soon after the collision, Border Patrol agents came upon the family’s wrecked Honda and fanned out in search of the hit-and-run driver.

A few blocks away, shortly after midnight, agents found a damaged pickup that matched the description Ingrid Lake gave them. Inside were two men, who were detained.

Banda-Acosta was identified as the driver. He was booked into jail on suspicion of felony hit-and-run with injury, drunken driving with injury and driving without a valid license.

The Border Patrol took custody of Banda-Acosta’s passenger, also an unauthorized immigrant, agency officials said.

This, of course, is far from the only such instance.  Fifteen times this person was identified as an invader and sent home, and sixteen times he illegally entered this country, before doing serious harm to its citizens.  I’ll say it again: illegal immigration needs to be treated as the invasion it is, and dealt with harshly enough to deter this kind of repeat offending.  The very fact this can happen shows our government is not serious about its primary responsibility: protecting its people (in this case, by securing the border).  I’ve summarized my suggestions on this before:

Illegal immigration will be taken seriously as a violation of the nation’s sovereignty and treated as an invasion.  Anyone found living in the United States illegally will serve 90 days hard labor maintaining the border infrastructure, then be deported to their country of origin.  Customs and Immigration will keep a full biometric record of apprehended illegal immigrants.  Second-time offenders will spend six months in solitary confinement, then be deported to their home country after having a distinctive tattoo placed on their right hand.  Third-time offenders will be subject to the death penalty as foreign invaders.  Any illegal immigrant who causes the death of an American citizen, regardless of the number of immigration offenses, will be subject to the death penalty.  Any nation that refuses to receive deported illegal immigrants from their country will lose all trade privileges with the United States until and unless they change their policy.

Ugly days are ahead of us.  Because we’ve been so lax in letting our government ignore its basic duties, any solution will now be far more difficult and painful (for ALL concerned) than simply maintaining a common sense policy would have been.  Again, all I can say is this:

“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.”
— Thomas Paine

The world needs the U.S.

…more than the U.S. needs the world.  And it’s about time we started acting that way:

Approximately 30 countries are refusing to accept the deportations of illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes in the U.S., according to Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar.

While these countries are refusing to accept the deportations of these criminals, the U.S. government is still issuing visas and student visas to citizens of those countries, according to the Texan congressman. There is already a law on the books which allows the U.S. to hold visas from a country that is not taking back its criminals, but according to Cuellar, the U.S. is not enforcing it.

“We’re not enforcing it, which is amazing. So now my intent is to go back to our committee on appropriations and affect their funding until they do that,” Cuellar told Sharyl Attkisson, host of Full Measure, in an interview.

Cuellar, a Democratic member of the House Committee on Appropriations, told Attkisson that the Supreme Court has ruled that illegal immigrants arrested for criminal activity can only be held for a certain period of time before they must be released.

And releasing illegal criminal immigrants puts the U.S. population at risk.

As others have already noted, our response to this intransigence should go beyond refusing to issue any kind of visas to countries that won’t take back their criminals.  We should also halt any foreign aid that goes their way (which we shouldn’t be in the business of anyway), as well as putting a 100% tariff on any goods imported from that country.

The United States has the largest economy in the world and its third-largest population (after China and India).  We have a wealth of natural resources, and technology such as fracking is allowing us to access even more of this potential.  Simply put, the world needs access to our market and economy far more than we need anything from overseas.  Were it not for the debt we’ve recklessly assumed over the last half century (much of it from playing GloboCop), we could stand utterly independent of the world.

Want to make America great again?  Send all known illegal immigrants to Guantanamo Bay (which our last president unwisely all but emptied) until their home nation agrees to receive them.  Let’s stop pretending foreigners enjoy the same Constitutional rights as citizens.  They are endowed with the protection of life, liberty (as long as they are law-abiding) and the pursuit of happiness (subject to being in America’s interest to accept them).  As long as there is a foreign national being held because of their country’s refusal to take back deportees, cut off all access to the United States and its markets.

And while we’re on the subject, killing the H1-B visa is long overdue.

It’s time the American government (all branches of it) put America first.  We don’t need “citizens of the world” running our country.  We need patriotic, hard-headed realists.

The GOP doesn’t seem to have many of those.  Making America Great Again will require action in the 2018 election, too.  Do you know how your representatives are voting?  You should.  Don’t count on Trump to change the direction all by himself.  Even if he did, that way lies future problems with executive overreach.  Punish the globalists in Congress, and give Trump a legislature he can work with.

Then let’s let the world tend to itself for a while.  We’ve been bailing it out since 1917.  After a century, we deserve to shed the role.

Well… who’da thunk?

Note: this is a lengthy post in part because I’m refuting secularists who misuse scripture to justify the ongoing invasion of the West.  If you arrived on this site’s main page be sure to click on “Continue reading” below.

Both a judge in Washington and an appeals panel of the 9th Circus Circuit Court of Appeals have stayed President Trump’s executive order banning entry to the country by people from seven nations considered to be high risk (incidentally, it was Obama who first flagged these nations as problematic).  Both courts claimed there was no evidence to support such a ban.

Truth is, they just didn’t look for any.  After all, pesky facts would get in the way of their legislating AND presiding from the bench:

A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks. These facts stand in stark contrast to the assertions by the Ninth Circuit judges who have blocked the president’s order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in.

Let me repeat that: 72 people from the countries on Trump’s list arrived in the United States since 9/11, and were later convicted of terror-related actions.

This is why I can’t stand the Transportation Security Agency — it’s security theater, not real security.  Real security comes from keeping terrorists out of the country, not from harassing citizens at airports.

This is why I can’t stand the open borders crowd.  Either we are a sovereign nation or we’re not.  Sovereign nations have every right to control who is allowed to enter and under what circumstances.

The fall of Western Civilization

I usually keep Saturdays light, with some music or random musing.  I just can’t do that this week.  Not after reading two stories within minutes of each other, both of which herald just how much our governments aren’t serious about their primary duty: protecting their citizens.

Exhibit A: In Sweden, five teenage migrants from Afghanistan have been convicted of gang-raping another teenage migrant.  But despite calls from the prosecution to expel the convicts back to their native country, it won’t happen because “of their age and the dangers they would face in their homeland.”  One of the dangers of Afghanistan is the widespread practice of rape.  By allowing these “youths” to spend less than a year and a half in jail, then return to Swedish society, the government is essentially allowing barbarous behavior to be imported there.

Exhibit B: A man from Mexico who had been deported ten times since 2003 is now accused of raping a 13-year old girl in Kansas.

I don’t mean to imply that such crimes are never committed by citizens.  We already have crime enough from domestic sources.  But it’s increasingly clear that the flood tide of migrants across Europe and the United States is bringing in a large number of what Trump indelicately referred to as “bad hombres.”  A nation that is serious about its sovereignty and security would never allow someone to reenter illegally nine more times after first being caught.  For all the impact they’re being allowed to have, we might as well defund the Immigration and Customs Enforcement division of the joke known as the “Department of Homeland Security.”

It’s bad enough these people are committing the national equivalent of ‘breaking and entering.’  When that behavior is compounded by assaults and crimes against the citizens living here, it should be dealt with swiftly and harshly.  The dilemma is that I’m one of many people who believe our police need to reduce the instances of abuse of authority… and yet on this important issue it’s as if we don’t even have police.  As Charlie Daniels sang in Simple Man, “I’m the kinda guy wouldn’t harm a mouse, but if I catch somebody breaking in my house, I gotta 12-gauge shotgun waitin’ inside.”  (Full disclosure: mine’s only a 20-gauge, but it now has several stable mates with it.  The Musketeers and I took them out for a spin just this week.)

Scripture says governments are permitted to ‘bear the sword‘ in order to reward good and punish evil.  Punishment is severely lacking in both cases above (and countless others I’ve read and could link to but in the interest of time don’t).  The message all this sends is that these are happy hunting grounds, further compounding the problem.  We need to send a much different signal, and soon.  While I don’t take death lightly, there is an argument to be made along the lines of “shoot a few and the rest will learn.”  Because our governments won’t exercise their responsibility here, I predict citizens will increasingly take matters into their own hands.  When you delegate authority to someone and they fail to get the job done, the boss usually takes that power back.

We need to remember who the boss is for Western republics.  And it’s NOT the jokers in D.C. Mordor.

On fakery, official and non

Apparently, traditional Americans are so evil that their enemies have to do some of the dirty work for them:

Mississippi authorities have made an arrest in the burning of an African-American church spray-painted with the words, “Vote Trump.”

Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain says Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, who is African-American, is charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship.

Meanwhile:

(Adam) Saleh’s video of the incident went viral Wednesday, along with his claim that he was kicked (off a Delta flight) “because I spoke Arabic to my mom on the phone.” Shortly afterwards, however, others pointed out that Saleh had a history of making videos about fake anti-Muslim racial profiling incidents and prank videos about planes in particular…

There sure seem to be a lot of these self-inflicted incidents.  One could conclude these people suffer from serious mental derangement in their efforts to paint certain other people as allegedly dangerous.  When you have to burn your own church or spray paint threatening messages on your own buildings, or inflict injuries on yourself in order to accuse others of misconduct, it’s time to reassess your view of the world.  That would require rational behavior, though.

Speaking of rational behavior, it seems it also is sorely lacking in some of the various Western governments’ security departments:

A string of security blunders left a failed Tunisian asylum seeker free to carry out the Berlin Christmas market massacre, it is feared.

German security services face difficult questions after it emerged that Amris, a lifelong criminal, should have been deported months ago

He had been arrested three times this year and his asylum application was rejected, but deportation papers were never served and he disappeared.

The Tunisian radical was known to be a supporter of Islamic State and to have received weapons training.

If you read the full article, you’ll find a tale of massive bureaucratic inertia that resulted in more deaths from jihad.  Hint to the German authorities: when people begin comparing your competence to the fakery and security theater that is the U.S. Transportation Security Agency or ‘border control,’ you’re not being complimented!

So our enemies pretend we’re more hateful than we actually are, and we keep pretending we’re doing something effective to meet their threat.   Sounds like everyone needs a reality check.  These are not the right times for security agencies to be acting like Keystone Cops.

I wonder why that is?

Ohio State University seems to be the scene of the latest outbreak of Sudden Jihad Syndrome:

An Ohio State University student posted a rant shortly before he plowed a car into a campus crowd and stabbed people with a butcher knife in an ambush that ended when a police officer shot him dead, a law enforcement official said.

Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, wrote on what appears to be his Facebook page that he had reached a “boiling point,” made a reference to “lone wolf attacks” and cited radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

Naturally, there was no way to anticipate such action.  After all, Artan had come from Somalia to America by way of Pakistan, like all good peaceful immigrants do.

Even with such a distinguished travel record, Artan claimed in the student newspaper to be concerned over how students might react to him praying during the Muslim prayer times.

I wonder why?

After all, for the life of me, I can’t think of a single reason why Americans would be concerned about Muslim immigrants…

To invert Ronald Reagan’s challenge to Gorbachev, “Mr Trump, build up the wall!” And roll up the welcome mat for a while.
