The Legacy of Obama's Illegal Alien Aunt Zeituni

The Legacy of Obama's Illegal Alien AuntZeituni Onyango, President Obama's illegal alien aunt, died this week of cancer and other complications. I hope she rests in peace. America, however, should be up in arms.

Auntie Zeituni is an enduring symbol of all that is wrong with this country's immigration "policy"—or rather, its complete lack of a coherent, enforceable system of laws and rules that puts the national interest first. She was a beneficiary of the welfare state run amok, enabled by bipartisan fecklessness. To the bitter end, she bit the hand that fed her with predictable ingratitude and metastatic entitlement.

Zeituni's 14-year illegal overstay is a reminder that our temporary visa program is an abysmal joke. Like millions of foreign students, business people and tourists to this country, Auntie Zeituni obtained a short-term visitor visa in 2000. It had an expiration date. She was supposed to go back to Kenya in two years after traveling here with her son, who had been accepted at a college in Boston.

But like millions of other "temporary" visa overstayers, Auntie Zeituni never went home. And despite billions spent on homeland security and immigration enforcement, no one ever went looking for her to kick her out of the country after her time was up.

Auntie Zeituni had no job skills, no special talent, no compelling reason to keep her here in America as an asset to our culture or our economy. She didn't value the American Dream. She was a dependency nightmare. She collected $700 a month in welfare benefits and disability payments totaling $51,000. Somehow, Auntie Zeituni also drummed up money to apply for asylum and finagled her way into both federal and state public housing in Boston.

She contributed nothing to this country. The only "work" she did was gaming the system, complaining about her lot and blaming everyone else for her problems while they subsidized her 14-year illegal overstay.

Auntie Zeituni's ridiculous asylum application and what happened afterward are reminders that our asylum and deportation systems are appalling jokes. Auntie Zeituni's bogus request was rejected by the immigration court system. A judge ordered her to return to Kenya in 2003. She appealed. She lost. A judge again ordered her to leave in 2004.

But Auntie Zeituni never went home. Like an estimated 700,000 other deportation absconders, she evaded the judicial order for nearly a half-dozen years and continued to feed

Indianapolis: Shooting By Black Teen Starts “Conversation” About NRA Convention, But Not Black Expo

Just another day in urban America:

A 16-year-old boy has been arrested and charged as an adult with the senseless murder of a 24-year-old newlywed and father-to-be while he was taking a walk last week in Indiana.

Simeon Adams was found hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his neck only hours after the fatal shooting of Nathan Trapuzzano on April 1, according to Indianapolis police.

The software engineer who was expecting his first child next month was taking a morning walk just before 6 a.m. when Adams allegedly shot him twice in a suspected robbery.

Police arrest 16-year-old boy in murder of newlywed, father-to-be in Indianapolis  By Nina Golgowski, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, April 8, 2014

And just another idiot Main Stream Media response:

Think about this: Indianapolis has seen another rash of homicides this year, the vast majority of them tied to guns….This city should be waging a war against the illegal possession of guns; instead, we get relative silence.

Speaking of crime, what I would do for an elected leader in this community to lead an honest conversation about what it truly will take to address the problem. We need hundreds of new police officers, as well as a substantial upgrade in prisoner re-entry programs, and both will cost dollars. Big dollars.

It’s worth it. But our top leaders need to make that sale, and they need to be willing to talk about spending and taxes regardless of the political consequences.

Tully: Indy avoids hard conversations about guns, violence, by Matthew Tully, [Email him]Indianapolis Star, April 8. 2014

Actually, what Indianapolis needs is an “honest conversation” about race. But it’s not going to happen, despite (or perhaps because of) the fact that it’s one of the very few big cities to have a Republican Mayor (Greg Ballard, Message him on Twitter).

Unmentioned in either MSM story: of course, the victim was white. Of course, the alleged perp was black.

The victim, Nathan Trapuzzano, with his widow, and unborn child.

Simeon Adams—the (allegedly, for legal reasons) shooter.

The victim, Nathan Trapuzzano, with his widow, and unborn child.

Simeon Adams—the (allegedly, for legal reasons) shooter.

 

The backstory here: despite its Middle American image, Indianapolis is suffering increasing white flight. The European-American population has dropped from 76 percent in 1990 to 58 percent today.  

Significantly, Indianapolis this year is home to two conferences: both the National Rifle Association, April 25-27—and an annual Indiana Black Expo. July 10-20.  The city government has apparently been refusing to advertise the NRA conference—but it is celebrating the Black Expo from the highest levels

Needless to say, the city government is also far more involved in the Black Expo in another way—providing massive amounts of security and a huge propaganda campaign aimed at preventing attendees from killing each other. 

Also needless to say, despite the Main Stream Media’s loathing for guns and (more importantly) for gun owners, there seem to be absolutely no security concerns over the NRA conference, which bring an estimated 70,000 gun enthusiasts to the city. But—

Visit Indy, the city's tourism arm, normally, promotes its convention bookings. But it has yet to publicize the NRA gathering—an event that has sparked public protests, tight police security and calls to go elsewhere.

In fact, the city’s officials signed the deal to host the convention back in

Casino Boss And Amnesty Tout Sheldon Adelson: Competition For Thee, But Not For Me

Never Trust a Liberal Over Three-Especially a RepublicanBetween having Republican presidential candidates fly to Las Vegas to kiss his ring, billionaire Sheldon Adelson has managed to fit in time to talk Sen. Lindsey Graham into sponsoring a bill banning Internet gambling. 

As you may know, Sheldon Adelson is a CASINO OWNER. Internet gambling would compete with his casino business. 

On the other hand, when it comes to the services Adelson isn't selling, but buying—low-skilled workers—he's for unbridled competition, preferring not to limit the supply even to people who are legally in the United States. (Weirdly, so is Lindsey Graham.)

Adelson is a big backer of amnesty, telling The Wall Street Journal: "It would be inhumane to send those people back, to send 12 million people out of this country. ... So we've got to find a way, find a route for those people to get legal citizenship." 

As Milton Friedman said, "With some notable exceptions, businessmen favor free enterprise in general but are opposed to it when it comes to themselves." 

Adelson is an especially telling example of the self-interest of businessmen on immigration. His newspaper, Israel Today, the largest newspaper in Israel, is wildly patriotic on immigration (and everything else). 

Israel Today has trumpeted the success of the 15-foot razor-wire fence along Israel's 140-mile border with Egypt, triumphantly noting last August that, for the first time, "no infiltrations were recorded from the Egyptian border, compared to 193 from the same month last year." 

Adelson himself had suggested just such a policy to the Los Angeles Times last year, saying he wanted to "Put a big fence around our country." 

By "our country," he, of course, meant Israel. In America, he wants illegal immigrants pouring across the border

GOP Finally Noticing Obama Regime Lawlessness—But Administrative Amnesty Expanding To Criminals

Almost three years after I wrote Obama Regime's Administrative Amnesty: Impeachment Is The Only Answer, the issue of White House lawlessness is finally, half-heartedly, being noticed in Congress:

  • House Speaker John Boehner has just blamed it for his inability to get “immigration reform” a.k.a. the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge past his own caucus:

Obama has been pressured by Democrats to use executive powers to slow deportations and make de facto reforms to immigration, something Boehner warned would derail any efforts entirely.

“That will make it almost impossible to ever do immigration reform, because he will spoil the well to the point where no one will trust him by giving him a new law that he will implement the way the Congress intended,” Boehner said.

John Boehner: Obama “will spoil the well”, by Tal Kopan, April 8, 2014

(This of course raises the question of just why Boehner wants to “do immigration reform” and destroy his party, and his country.)

So Amnesty may not pass—but the Obama Regime plans to implement it anyway. And it looks like this was the plan all along.

The Regime’s Administrative Amnesty has been ignored (or secretly supported) by treacherous Republicans.

And anti-white, anti-American groups have also received promises from their Minority Occupation Government that the Regime will act within three months if there is no bill on the President’s desk. [ Activists: We want an emancipator, not a ‘deporter in chief,’ by Richard Gonzales, NPR, March 29, 2014]

The Regime is also trumpeting a review of deportation policy. [Obama orders review of US deportation practices Associated Press, March 13, 2014] This review apparently includes ending all actions against aliens who violated deportation orders and even against those who were deported but infiltrated again later. [ Who Should Be Deported, by John Sandweg, Los Angeles Times, March 27, 2014]  

This would effectively end immigration enforcement in the United States…except for aliens with especially blatant criminal convictions.

But never fear—even criminals are preferable to Americans in the eyes of the Regime. An Amnesty is already under way for them too.

It is becoming clear that the Regime’s plan has been more deliberate, detailed, and comprehensive than previously imagined. Step by step, the Regime is seeing what it can get away with.

Initially, it was the Main Stream Media’s pet “DREAMers” who just

Memo From Middle America | The Homeschooling Romeikes Allowed To Stay—To Bolster Administrative Amnesty?

Memo From Middle America | The Homeschooling Romeikes Allowed To Stay—To Bolster Administrative Amnesty?

 

 There’s been a dramatic turnaround for the Romeike family, the German homeschoolers the Obama/Holder Administration was fighting to deport. The Supreme Court refused to hear their case on March 3. So it looked like the end.  But the very next day, the Department of Homeland Security granted the family “indefinite deferred-action status.”

Why did the Obama Regime, after going out of its way to deport the Romeikes, suddenly let them stay? And what are the ramifications?

It may have been due to public outrage. Critics of the Romeikes’ treatment embarrassingly contrasted it with the millions of illegal aliens being coddled by the Administration.

In fact, Obama may see this decision as facilitating his drive for illegal alien Amnesty. He employed a unilateral Administrative Amnesty for the Romeikes—just as he has done for many illegal aliens.

Tellingly, even Michael Farris, founder and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association [HSLDA], the group that defended the Romeikes, doubts it was a great victory for homeschooling. In fact, he sees it as containing the seeds for a future move against American homeschoolers. He writes:

Other than the Romeike family themselves, no one could have been more thrilled than me with the sudden reversal from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which allowed them to remain in the United States…[But] this administrative victory needs to be understood for what it is. It is a victory for the Romeike family alone. No other German homeschooling family can benefit from the administrative grace that was shown in this one instance.

Farris’ concern:

If our government contends that Germany did not violate the principles of religious freedom when it banned homeschooling in order to gain philosophical control over children, then it implies that it would not violate religious freedom or parental rights if the United States decided to ban homeschooling for the same purpose. After all, we would simply be promoting tolerance and pluralism. That is the subtle but dangerous message buried in the Romeike decision.

[Dangerous Policy Lurks Behind Romeike Triumph [by Michael Farris, HSLDA, March 11, 2014]

I strongly support homeschooling. But, just a few decades ago, American officials had about the same attitude toward homeschoolers as German officials do today. The HSLDA, to its great credit, did much to improve the legal standing of American homeschoolers.

What really bothered Americans about the Romeike case: the fact that the Obama Administration was going after a family of white homeschoolers, who had already been granted asylum, while simultaneously working to Amnesty millions of illegal aliens.

Personally, I support a shutdown of illegal and legal immigration. I don’t think we need immigrants. I don’t believe we are obligated to take in everybody in the world who has a problem in his home country.

But if, for some reason,

Brendan Eich, 1992 Buchanan Contributor, And The New Gay Blacklist

"There is a gay mafia," said Bill Maher, "if you cross them you do get whacked."

Maher, the host of HBO's "Real Time," was talking about the gay activists and their comrades who drove Brendan Eich out as CEO of Mozilla. Eich, who invented JavaScript and co-founded Mozilla in 1998, had been named chief executive in late March.

Instantly, he came under attack for having contributed $1,000 to Proposition 8, whereby a majority of Californians voted in 2008 to reinstate a ban on same-sex marriage. Prop 8 was backed by the Catholic Church, the Mormon Church and the black churches, and carried 70 percent of the African-American vote.

Though Eich apologized for any "pain" he had caused and pledged to promote equality for gays and lesbians at Mozilla, his plea for clemency failed to move his accusers. Too late. According to The Guardian, he quit after it was revealed that he had also contributed—"The horror, the horror!"—to the Buchanan campaign of 1992.

That cooked it. What further need was there of proof of the irredeemably malevolent character of Brendan Eich?

Observing the mob run this accomplished man out of a company he helped create, Andrew Sullivan blogged that Eich "has just been scalped" by gay activists. Sullivan went on:

"Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole thing disgusts me, as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society."

Yet, the purge of Eich, who, from his contributions—he also gave to Ron Paul—appears to be a traditionalist and libertarian—is being defended as a triumph of the First Amendment.

James Ball of The Guardian writes that far from being "a defeat for freedom of expression," Eich's removal is a "victory—the ouster of a founder and CEO by his own people, at a foundation based on open and equal expression."

Eich's forced resignation, writes Ball, "should be the textbook example of the system working exactly as it should."

Ball seems to be saying that what the gay mob did to Eich at Mozilla is what the heroes of Maidan Square did in driving President Viktor Yanukovych out of power and out of his country.

This is how the democracy works now.

National Data | March Jobs: Native-Born Americans Still Trail Immigrants In Obama-Era Employment Recovery

Payrolls expanded by 192,000 positions in March, beating the average for the miserable winter months, but still short of the rebound that many were expecting. With an average of about 90,000 legal immigrants entering the country each month, only 100,000 of this gain may be available for native-born Americans.

The math is depressing. In March more than 9 million native-born Americans were unemployed. At the current rate of job creation it will be 7.5 years before all these native-born unemployed find jobs. By then, of course, the population will be larger. And we haven’t even considered the millions who have avoided unemployment by dropping out of the labor force.

More depressing still: the absence of any MSM chatter regarding the unemployment-busting potential of an immigration moratorium.

One good March sign: the labor force participation rate (LPR) picked up slightly, suggesting that workers are being lured back into the job hunt as hiring expands. Even this positive may pertain to foreign-born workers only, however. As we point out below, over the past 12 months participation rates for native-born workers have declined. Only immigrants have a higher LPR this March than last.

The Household Employment Survey—the only report where immigrant and native-born American employment figures are broken out separately—found a robust 476,000 jobs were added last month. Our analysis indicates that native-born American workers gained jobs at virtually the same rate as immigrants.

In March:

  • Total  employment rose by 476,000, or by 0.33%
  • Native-born employment rose by 402,000 or by 0.33%
  • Foreign-born employment rose by 74,000, or by 0.31%

So native-worker displacement was on hiatus in March. As a result, our New VDARE.com American Worker Displacement Index (NVDAWDI) remained at its February level—109.4. But the displacement of native-born American workers by immigrants during the Obama years is still painfully evident in the NVDAWDI graphic:

Is Immigration Really A "Jewish Value"?

Israel Fence

African would-be "Refugees"/Infiltrators stopped by Israel's fence. H/T CSM

GOP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s ominous squishiness in the face of the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge drive, which has provoked a primary challenge from Economics professor Dave Brat, may be due to personal greed, but Jewish organizations clearly think he can be motivated by ethnic appeals. A friend recently forwarded me this email (links in original except where noted):

BEND THE ARC MARSHALS JEWISH VOTERS TO PRESSURE ERIC CANTOR ON IMMIGRATION REFORM

Jewish voters are ratcheting up the pressure on Majority Leader Eric Cantor to move comprehensive immigration reform [VDARE.com note: a.k.a. amnesty/ Immigration Surge] through the House. On Monday, Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice launched a petition calling on Rep. Cantor to bring immigration reform to a vote. The effort, spearheaded by Bend the Arc, is a collaboration of many of the nation’s leading Jewish organizations.

The petition (at www.entrydenied.org) makes clear that immigration reform is a priority issue for the Jewish community:

“As American Jews, we believe in a nation that grants today's immigrants access to the same basic freedoms and opportunities that drew our ancestors and yours.” 

Jewish organizations are unanimous in support of the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge drive. This support for liberal immigration laws has a long history—the granddaddy of them all being the 40-year campaign to enact the 1965 immigration law that opened the door to heavy immigration of all the peoples of the world.

But what is striking is that Jewish immigration enthusiasts have portrayed themselves as motivated entirely by a set of ethical values that are unique and central to Judaism. Thus Bend the Arc proclaims:

We are building a national movement that pursues justice as a core expression of Jewish tradition….Jewish tradition is about liberation and love for humankind. We believe in the dignity and inherent right of all people to live in a just, fair and compassionate society. As Jews immigrated to America, this belief was stowed in their luggage. Throughout American history, courageous Jews have worked with others to hold the nation to its promise, whether in the abolitionist movement, the anti-sweatshop movement, the movement against child labor, the modern labor movement, the civil rights movement or the movement for LGBT inclusion (just to name a few).

And it boasts:

Over the past year, Bend the Arc has organized around the issue of immigration, arranging meetings between Jewish leaders and congressional staff, hosting immigration-themed Shabbats, organizing petitions and participating in marches, vigils and town halls to deliver the message that immigration reform is a top priority for Jewish voters. In October, Bend the Arc’s rabbi-in-residence was arrested at a national demonstration for immigration reform alongside members of Congress during an act of civil disobedience on the National Mall.

A similar wall-to-wall Jewish lobbying effort in California is aimed at limiting deportations of illegal aliens. Again, their motives are the purest:

“Is immigration a Jewish issue?” [a California Assemblyman] pressed skeptically.

[Rabbi Larry Raphael of Congregation Sherith Israel] answered, “We believe it is.” 

[Jewish Values at Heart of Immigration Reform, by Rachel Heller Zaimont, Jewish Journal, February 12, 2014]

An April 2 Google search for ‘immigration “Jewish values”' resulted in over 81,400 links to a wide range of Jewish organizations, including the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (which is deeply involved in recruiting African refugees for resettlement in the US), the American Jewish Committee, the National Council of Jewish Women, and the Union for Reform Judaism.

Clearly, from the mainstream Jewish perspective, swamping the historic American nation with peoples from all over the world is nothing less than a moral imperative. The tacit assumption: Jews are

Funny Thing: “White Privilege Conference” Just Held In At Wisconsin U., But Its White Basketball Team Reaches Final Four Anyway

Wisconsin’s White Basketball Team Goes to the Final Four

“White privilege” dominates everything in Wisconsin—even basketball.

Heavily-white Wisconsin is the unlikely center of anti-white political organizing in the United States, recently hosting the fifteenth annual “White Privilege Conference” in Madison. The conference, subsidized by taxpayer dollars, featured illuminating lectures (by whites) that informed European-Americans they were like “alcoholics” who could never be cured of racism, and if they didn’t want to work for “equity,” to “get the f*** out of education.” [Teacher ‘White Privilege Conference’: Whites Are Never Cured of Racism, by Warner Todd Hudson, Breitbart, April 1, 2014]

Of course, all this breast-beating by whites doesn’t seem to actually have much of an impact on African-American youth in Wisconsin. The state was recently declared the worst in the nation in “child well-being” for black children, with particularly glaring “black-white discrepancies in and around Madison, the relatively progressive and prosperous capital city.” [Study’s Low Marks on Youth Well-Being Stir States, by David Carry, Associated Press, April 1, 2014] (Needless to say, the responsibility of blacks for their own children went unmentioned).

At the same time, the University of Wisconsin’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Team has advanced to the Final Four. Paradoxiically, the Badgers are overwhelmingly white, starting four white players out of five. Main Stream Media treatment of white athletes, especially in basketball, has rcently assumed the historic American nation’s presence in the sport they invented is a freak occurrence.

Part of this is a writing stereotype that demeans the athleticism of whites. A typical article will say the team “thrives on fundamentals.” [Wisconsin thrives on fundamentals, by Drew Davison, Star-Telegram, March 28, 2014]

The MSM’s amazed reaction to the Badgers reflects the conventional wisdom (and bigotry) that whites simply can’t compete on the court. In this area, reporters feel free to make blanket statements about the collective athletic abilities of entire races.

This ten years ago, Boston Globe reporter and ESPN contributor Bob Ryan said the Vanderbilt Commodores were “too white” to win (even though the team started three black players). [Tournament notebook: Ryan says Vandy is “too white,” The Seattle Times, March 19, 2004]

In fairness, though, stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason. And basketball players and coaches largely agree that basketball belongs to blacks. Thus white professional star Larry Bird said: “It is a black man's game, and it will be forever.” [“Bird: NBA a ‘black man’s game,”ESPN, June 10, 2004]

Jerry West

Even as far back as 1977, Jerry West, the white athlete that the professional NBA logo is based on, said:

When I first came into the league [in 1960], it was just starting to turn into a black league. And let’s face it. This is a black league now.

[Sport: The Black Dominance, Time, May 9, 1977]

For a team of overwhelmingly white players to compete for the NCAA Championship is a  rarity:  

Recruiting numbers spell it out in black and white: Since the 2000 tournament, 34 of 40 Final Four teams played consistently with no more than one white starter during that particular year. The 2003 Syracuse team, with white starters Gerry McNamara and Craig Forth, was the only one to win a championship.

The last championship team to rely on at least three white starters was Duke in 1991, its first of back-to-back championships thanks to Bobby Hurley, Christian Laettner and Billy McCaffrey, who started most of that season.

Research shows white players lacking on recent Final Four basketball teams, by Jeremy Fowler, Orlando Sentinel, April 3, 2009

John Derbyshire Thinks Stephen Colbert And Suey Park Deserve Each Other. But What Happened To Alexandra Wallace?

Anyone remember Mr. Wong? Back in the summer of 2000, Mr. Wong was causing something of a stir: enough of a stir that I got a National Review column out of it. From which:

Mr. Wong [is] a series of animated comic strips on the Icebox website. [Still there!] The strips relate the adventures of a middle-aged Chinese immigrant named Mr. Wong, who works as houseboy for a wealthy, beautiful young American lady, Miss Pam.

The creators of Mr. Wong are both former writers for South Park, and it shows: the strip hits every button of tastelessness and racial offensiveness.

Mr. Wong is servile, devious and cheap: taken to a plaza with a fountain into which people have thrown pennies, Mr. Wong jumps in and starts scooping up the coins.

He is scrawny, has buck teeth, and speaks with a chop suey accent. In the first episode, Miss Pam announces she is going to Memphis for a cotillion, and will take Mr. Wong with her on condition he pronounces the word “cotillion” correctly.

“Cotirrion,” ventures Mr. Wong. “No, no. It’s ‘cotiLLion,’” says Miss Pam, laughing.

“CotiRRion …”

(The animations have to download to your machine before being played. This process is attended with a message that says: “rroading …”)

[I regret to say this last comment no longer applies.]

That was when the Wen Ho Lee case was still hot. Lee, an immigrant from Taiwan, had worked as a weapons-design engineer at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He had committed serious breaches of the security regulations he worked under, and been arrested by the FBI at the end of 1999. (Did I get a column out of that, too? You bet.)

Primed by outrage over Wen Ho Lee’s arrest—for, among other things, having met with a Chinese nuclear scientist in a Beijing hotel room and failed to report the meeting to his superiors—East-Asian Americans were weeping and sputtering all over the internet.  

Fourteen years on, East-Asian Americans are suffering another flare-up of Irritable Victim Syndrome (IVS). The perp this time—in the sense of the guy bruising multicultural sensibilities, not the guy hobnobbing with ChiCom nuke-builders—is TV satirist Stephen Colbert.

Colbert is one of that crew that I privately think of as the Smirkers. The other crew members I know of are Jon Stewart and Bill Maher, but there are probably some I’ve missed—I don’t make an effort to keep up with this stuff. They sit at newsreader-style desks smirking, smirking at the cameras and mocking all that is conservative and/or uncool: whites, traditional marriage, Jesus, whites, oil companies, Southerners, whites, gun rights, freedom of association

The Smirkers do for Cultural Marxism what the xiangsheng (“crosstalk”) acts on mainland-Chinese TV do for that nation’s ruling Party: provide comedic support. Cultural Marxism is hipper and looser than the actual Marxism of China’s control-freak ruling Party, so that Smirkers, unlike the generality of xiangsheng acts, are still occasionally funny. But the animating spirit is the same.

Last Thursday the Twitter account for Colbert’s show tweeted that “I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.” This was in reference somehow—I can’t hold the details in my head: you can read them here [Stephen Colbert Fires Back at Racial Tweet Outcry by Philiana Ng, The Hollywood Reporter, March 31st, 2014]—to the controversy over the name of baseball team The Washington Redskins.

There is a backstory to “Ching-Chong Ding-Dong”—two backstories, in fact.

Backstory One: In November 2005 Colbert did a spoof live-mike segment in which he pretended to have an exchange with an off-screen aide, addressing her with a mock Chinese accent. Following the segment, Colbert did a spoof denial: “That wasn’t me. That was a character I was doing called Ching-chong Ding-dong.”

Backstory Two: In March 2011 UCLA student Alexandra Wallace (pictured right)posted a video on YouTube in which she complained about East Asian students talking on cell phones in her college library:image

In America we do not talk on our cell phones in the library. Every … fifteen minutes I’ll be deep into my studying … typing away furiously, blah blah, blah, and then all of a sudden, when I’m about to, like, reach an epiphany [sic], over here from somewhere: ‘Ohhhh, ching-chong ling-long ting-tong, ohhhh …’ Are you freakin’ kidding me? In the middle of finals week …

That caused such a fuss, Ms. Wallace withdrew from her college after receiving death threats.

I have been unable to discover her present whereabouts.

This current brouhaha over the tweet from Colbert’s office

“Sheldon City”—Supreme Court’s McCUTCHEON Allows Adelson To Buy Amnesty/ Immigration Surge Even Faster

GOP Call Girls

GOP Presidential Aspirants at the Adelson Las Vegas Primary. H/T Bookyourvacation.com

The Supreme Court’s McCutcheon vs. FEC decision today (April 2) will have one stark consequence, summarized by Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig:

Already we have a system in which Congress is dependent upon the tiniest fraction of the 1% to fund its campaigns. I’ve estimated the number of relevant funders is no more than 150,000 (about the number of Americans named “Lester.”) If aggregate contribution limits are struck, that number will fall dramatically. More will be raised from a smaller number of contributors—maybe as few as 40,000 (about the number of Americans named “Sheldon”). So abolishing aggregate limits will move us from Lesterland to Sheldon City, increasing a dependence on the funders…

Originalists Making It Up Again: McCutcheon and ‘Corruption’, Daily Beast, April 2, 2014. Emphasis added.

As it happens, we know what “Sheldon City” looks like: the utterly sickening display in Las Vegas last weekend as GOP Presidential aspirants groveled for Jewish Plutocrat money. Thanks, Pat Buchanan, for laying out the basic facts in Sheldon Adelson, War Party Oligarch

For four days ending Sunday, a quartet of presidential hopefuls trooped to Las Vegas to attend the annual gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition.

Impresario: Sheldon Adelson the Vegas Macau casino mogul…who dumped $92 million into the election of 2012.

Adelson kept Newt Gingrich alive with a $15 million infusion of ad money, gutting Romney, and then sank $30 million into Mitt's campaign.

After discussing Adelson’s crazy proposal that America should nuke a section of the Iranian countryside as a demonstration Pat concluded

Is this what Republican presidential candidates must do now?

Kowtow to this fattest of fat cats who wants to buy himself an American war on Iran?

 

The only cheering aspect of this nauseating spectacle: the uninvited and discarded Newt Gingrich proved once again that he is exceptionally intellectually resourceful. (VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow noted this in early 2012 when Gingrich raised the issue of America’s legislating judiciary.) He struck back with Newt Gingrich says wealthy donors like Sheldon Adelson have too much influence by Maeta Gold The Washington Post March 28 2014

"...if you're going to have an election process that radically favors billionaires and is discriminating against the middle class—which we now have—then billionaires are going to get a lot of attention."

Of course considering the 2012 Gingrich Campaign was entirely shaped by Adelson money—as were his Hispandering activities in the preceding years—this called for a certain amount of ethical flexibility.

But that does not mean he is wrong now. Furthermore

NEW YORK TIMES On Amnesty: Cheap Labor Profiteering Millionaires Need Your Help!

Never Trust a Liberal Over Three-Especially a RepublicanLast Sunday, The New York Times published a front-page article about the heartfelt need of California farmers for more illegal aliens. [California Farmers Short of Labor, and Patience, By Jennifer Medina, March 29, 2014]

The first tip-off that heinous public policy ideas were coming was that the Times introduced farmer Chuck Herrin, owner of a farm-labor contracting company, as a "lifelong Republican." That's Times-speak for "liberal."

Herrin admitted that he employs a lot of illegal aliens and bitterly complained that they lived in fear of "Border Patrol and deportations." (But, apparently, he doesn't live in fear of admitting he's violating our immigration laws.)

Sorry that running a country inconveniences you, Chuck.

He said his illegal alien employees deserved amnesty because if "we keep them here and not do anything for them once they get old, that's really extortion."

As the punch line goes, "What's this 'we,' paleface?"

Taxpayers have been subsidizing Chuck Herrin's underpayment of his illegal labor force for decades, with skyrocketing taxes to pay for schools, roads, bridges, food stamps, health care and so on. Now Herrin thinks "we" are supposed to support his illegal employees in their old age, too.

Here's another idea: How about a federal law mandating that employers of illegal aliens take responsibility for the people they hire? Why is the taxpayer on the hook for illegal aliens' food, housing and medical care, when Chuck Herrin got 100 percent of the profit from their cheap labor?

We don't allow chemical companies to dump pollutants in rivers, walk away and then say, "If we dump chemicals in rivers and we don't clean them once the plant is gone, that's really criminal."

No, you dumped the chemicals—not "we." And you, Chuck Herrin, got the cheap labor—not "we."

"We" got hospital emergency rooms jammed with illegal aliens when we came in with heart attacks. "We" got the crime, drunk-driving and drug trafficking associated with illegal aliens. "We" got the overcrowded schools filled with kids whose illegal alien parents don't pay property taxes. "We" got to press "one" for English.

This is even worse than the Wall Street bailouts—another example of fat cats

Conspirators In Cassocks: Catholic Bishops (But Not Laity) Betraying America

Catholic bishops have accelerated their anti-American Open Borders crusade to fluff up their scandal-scarred morality cred in the Main Stream Media and to nudge “immigrants” (legality immaterial) to attend the church that supports ethnic separatism and disdains assimilation. Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley and several bishops celebrated a photo-op Mass near the border today (April 1) to underline their dedication to “immigrants.” These conspirators in cassocks were also scheduled to tour a local shelter and visit with the Border Patrol.

(Even the hide-bound hierarchy is hooked in to Twitter, using the #BorderMass hashtag for its event. O’Malley has the handle @CardinalSean.)

They emphasized the suffering of the illegal invaders—with no recognition that successful invaders steal jobs that should by law go to Americans; and no mention of America’s 20+ million unemployed.

O’Malley et al.’s deeply selfish and solipsistic view of morality: Hispanic foreigners (Catholic) should be cut extra slack—even though their law-breaking hurts innocent Americans.

Why is the American taxpayer supposed to support law-breaking just because the perps are poor foreigners? We have plenty of homegrown folks in poverty.

Why isn’t wealthy Mexico (#14 in world GDP) taken to task for its rotten treatment of its own poor?

Cardinal O’Malley posted his homily on his Facebook page—the same old demand that America taxpayers support the world’s (Catholic) unfortunates:

Pope Francis encourages us to go to the periphery to seek our neighbor in places of pain and darkness. We are here to discover our own identity as God’s children so that we can discover who our neighbor is, who is our brother and sister.

As a nation of immigrants we should feel a sense of

Juan Elias Garcia

Juan Elias Garcia, The New Face Of Crime In America

You have to wonder why MS-13 gangbanger Juan Elias Garcia, who landed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List last week, surrendered just one day later in Nicaragua? [Long Island murder suspect on FBI list arrested in Nicaragua,  ABC, March 28, 2014] Then again, maybe not. Garcia may well expect President Barack Obama to free him from jail, then give him Amnesty, even if the Salvadoran murder suspect is a child killer.

In 2010, authorities allege, Garcia murdered Vanessa Argueta, 19, and her 2-year-old son, Diego Torres. As the FBI explained it:

According to prior court filings and testimony introduced during two recent MS-13 racketeering trials, Garcia was involved in a romantic relationship with Argueta, a woman who had ties to both the 18th Street Gang and the Latin Kings — two of MS-13’s principal rivals. After a dispute between Argueta and Garcia, rival gang members allegedly threatened violence against Garcia. When Garcia explained that he had been threatened by members of the rival gang as a result of information he believed Argueta had provided, Garcia and other MS-13 members, including Adalberto Ariel Guzman and Rene Mendez Mejia, obtained permission from their MS-13 leader, Heriberto Martinez, to retaliate against Argueta.

On February 4, 2010, Garcia contacted Argueta and invited her out to dinner. Later that evening, Garcia picked up Argueta and 2 two-year-old son, Diego Torres, in a vehicle. Garcia, Guzman, and Mejia then allegedly drove the vehicle to a wooded area in Central Islip and lured their victims into the woods. Once they were in the woods, the MS-13 members fired two shots with a .22 caliber handgun, striking Argueta twice in the head and chest. After hearing the gunshots and seeing his mother killed, Torres began crying. The defendants shot Torres in the head, which knocked the young boy to the ground but did not kill him. Torres got back up and clutched onto Garcia’s leg, but Guzman then fired a second shot that struck Torres in the head and killed him. On February 5, 2010, the bodies of Argueta and her son were found in a wooded area in Central Islip.

The FBI told Fox News that killing the kid was “a new low, even for MS-13.” [FBI adds violent gang member to most-wanted list , March 26, 2014]

But given that Garcia surrendered in the hope of getting a plea deal, American taxpayers will likely be feeding this “Latino” scumbag while he works for MS-13 in prison for the rest of his life.

VDARE.com readers know MS-13. The gang is even reaching into such bucolic places as the Shenandoah Valley, where it murdered a prosecution witness, Brenda Paz, with unbridled ferocity, stabbing her 16 times and nearly decapitating her, leaving her for dead in an area where some residents had likely never seen a “Latino” until they started showing in droves to work in the area’s chicken factories. [ Hillbangers, By Matthew Brzezinski, NYT, August 15, 2004]

But what triggers this review of Garcia’s loathsome life isn’t his murdering a mother in front of her 2-year-old, then murdering the 2-year-old. Rather, it’s the news that when Garcia made the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted men, he brought to six the number of Hispanics on the list.

That’s right—60 percent of the Ten Most Wanted criminals were “Latinos.” They are:

The least dangerous guy in this pond of scum seems to be:

  • Victor Manuel Gerena, wanted for the armed robbery of $7 million from a security company in 1983. And he was born in New York (of Puerto Rican descent).
