Memo From Middle America | Obama’s Miami Town Hall Meeting Appeals Directly To Illegal Aliens—WHERE IS GOP?

Obama’s Miami Town Hall Meeting Appeals Directly To Illegal Aliens—WHERE IS GOP?

In an administration which increasingly resembles the court of an emperor, Barack Obama traveled to Miami, Florida last week, where he held a “Town Hall” meeting for an audience including illegal aliens and their supporters. The apparent purpose: to reassure them that Amnesty is going to go through—and that he intends to drown the historic American nation. Did we hear any high-ranking Republicans complain about this?

The “Town Hall” was sponsored by MSNBC and Telemundo and was hosted by Telemundo’s Cuban-American journalist Jose Diaz-Balart, the brother of current U.S. Republican congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (NumbersUSA ranking: F-) and former congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart and also the nephew of Mirta Diaz-Balart, who…was Fidel Castro’s first wife!

But if you were just an ordinary American living in Miami, you probably couldn’t have participated. For one thing, tickets were not made available to the general public. It was an invitation-only event with a purpose the White House made clear.

In speaking of the Miami town hall several days earlier, Obama Press Secretary Josh Earnest had explained that

“the president has a desire to engage in a genuine conversation about issues important to the community. “

“The community”? The American Community?

No, the activist Latino immigrant and pro-illegal alien community.

“It makes for an interesting, dynamic place and a great symbol of how immigration

Democrat Says John Lewis Is A True American Hero—But He Needs To Get Real On Immigration

See, earlier Frank Morris Speaks For African-Americans On Immigration By Donald A. Collins

It’s rare to hear from someone I consider a true hero. Last week I had just such an opportunity when I listened to a speech by Civil Rights icon and Congressman John Lewis. Yet Lewis’s support for open borders threatens to undermine everything that he has accomplished.

newseumpicLewis spoke at the Washington DC Newseum about his experiences in the Civil Rights Movement [Civil Rights Superhero: An Evening With John Lewis and Andrew Aydin, Newseum, February 25, 2015]. He delivered a spellbinding stem-winder recounting his dangerous history in the struggle for equality for African-Americans. In the end, I believe that what Lewis and his comrades fought for was simply for America to adhere to the rule of law and adhere to the ideals in our founding documents.

I must admit his stories often brought me close to tears. And his wildly enthusiastic reception by a mostly non-black audience was marked by repeated standing ovations.

Everything Congressman Lewis said was marked by hearty applause, which I was glad to join. But when Lewis called for comprehensive immigration reform, my hands remained still.

He can hardly be blamed. After all, it seems like every Democrat these days—except me—has taken the Obama Open Borders position. This support comes from both those who have experienced privilege and oppression.

When I lived in the North Beach area of San Francisco, near Nancy Pelosi’s wealthy district, I heard reports that kids in the local youth center spoke over 20 languages. And we can expect Lewis to feel a certain empathy for downtrodden illegals after his youthful experiences in what was practically a war zone in Alabama.

But does Lewis truly fail to grasp

Immigration Patriots Suddenly On Offensive As Scott Walker Comes Out Against Amnesty (etc.)

scott-walker-new-smiling-2011-cropped-proto-custom_2[1]

Since Walker moved away from Amnesty, the MSM says he flip-flopped. If he'd moved the other way, they'd say he had evolved.

March is coming in like a lion for immigration patriots, as the drama over Obama’s Executive Amnesty mounts. Three major signs of spring:

  • Candidates versus Conservatism Inc. at CPAC

Conservatism Inc. did its best to distract CPAC attendees from thinking too much about immigration this weekend, banishing Ann Coulter despite her popularity because of her powerful attacks on Amnesty, and stacking the deck against immigration patriots in the scheduled speeches. The case against immigration is not one that the Beltway Right wants to hear, which is why VDARE.com supporters did their best to take their message to attendees through grassroots activism.

Needless to say, the Beltway Right’s usual cowardice did nothing to stop the Left’s usual attacks against it, as various Cultural Marxist enforcers demanded the power to determine who conservatives are and are not allowed to associate with at what is supposed to be the most important gathering of the American Right in the country. Yet even as the Left mustered its usual showy “outrage,” the undeniable fact is that CPAC’s management has all but banished populist Right organizations as sponsoring organizations, either deliberately or through the gouging prices the conference now demands.

Still, the politicians at CPAC were forced to show their concern about the immigration issue. The frankly anti-American (in the sense that he openly despises existing American citizens) Jeb Bush’s only supporters were those that he bused in. Senator Ted Cruz, who finished third in the Straw Poll, explicitly focused on (illegal) immigration during his speech and called out K street lobbyists.

Even Marco Rubio had to back down from openly supporting Amnesty. And the winner of the Straw Poll, Rand Paul, despite his flip-flops, was an opponent of the Amnesty/Immigration Surge when he actually had to vote. And Nigel Farage of UKIP condemned multiculturalism from the main stage, triggering Leftists.

What this tells us is that immigration patriotism is the opposite of an Astroturf issue. Immigration patriotism resonates among voters and at the grassroots, even though it is almost totally devoid of institutional support.

The real winner of CPAC: Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, whose strong second- place finish in the yearly straw poll can almost be called a victory when you can take for granted that Rand Paul (or any Paul) is going to win, given the strength—in some ways unfortunate—of libertarianism among the younger generation.

Walker has clearly established himself as the anti-Jeb among Beltway Republicans and grassroots conservatives who can’t quite bring themselves to support the libertarian-leaning Paul. But Walker has a mixed record on immigration and has supported an Amnesty/Immigration Surge in the past.

Which brings us to...

  • Scott Walker Shifts Our Way

Scott Walker moved on immigration—in a patriotic direction. And he isn’t even doing the usual politician trick of claiming his views have somehow remained consistent. As he told Fox News: “My view has changed. I’m flat out saying it.” [Walker: ‘My View Has Changed’ on immigration reform, March 1, 2015].

Walker is now saying that a path to citizenship for illegals qualifies as Amnesty. He says he changed his

Jeb Bush’s Greatest Liability (Aside From His Immigration Enthusiasm) May Be His Wife

Just as Laura Ingraham predicted, the Main Stream Media’s spin on Jeb Bush’s appearance at CPAC is that he survived (although he apparently bused in supporters and still did very badly in Saturday’s presidential straw poll). But an arrogant Establishment Republican named Bush with a spendthrift Mexican immigrant wife with a taste for expensive things—now there’s a presidential couple that will inspire the historic American nation!

Some Republicans are excited about Jeb Bush because he has a Hispanic wife, Columba. Thus The Hill refers to Jeb's Hispanic wife as his "secret weapon" for winning the presidency. [How Jeb Bush's wife could help win him the White House, by Jonathan Easley, Jan. 28, 2015]. Needless to say, this crude tokenism will fail in the general election because of the overriding Latin American-style economic and political commitments of Hispanics. But there seems to be no limit to the GOP’s appetite for minority-pandering.

bush_columba1[1]As The Hill tells us, Columba is a “Mexican-born immigrant.” It was Columba who triggered Jeb’s metamorphosis into an “honorary Hispanic,” as the Washington Post gushes:

The unlikely evolution of John Ellis “Jeb” Bush into a sort of honorary Hispanic loops back to 1970 and a tree-lined square in Leon, a colonial-era city in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato. Bush, then a teenager and student at the elite Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., was in Mexico for a three-month exchange program. One Sunday, he spotted a girl in the back of a car promenading around the square. She struck him as “beautiful,” and so did her name: Columba Garnica de Gallo.[Hispanic consciousness lends weight to Jeb Bush as GOP eyes 2016 presidential race, by Manuel Roig-Franzia and Peter Wallsten, April 24, 2013].

Liberals, campaign consultants, donors, and naïve Republicans will find this love story compelling. But when Jeb hits the trail with his wife, traditional Americans will cringe when Bush wraps Amnesty in the mantle of his marriage.

The Hill points out how Jeb and Columba evidently talk about Hispanic family values at home: “The Mexican-born immigrant has

National Data: Obama Era American Worker Displacement—Not A Pretty Picture

We delayed our monthly commentary on immigrant displacement of American workers, based on our analysis of the federal government’s updated unemployment data, to include our new charts—above, the relentless influx of immigrant workers into the U.S. job market since Obama took office in 2009. Note that you can now mouse-over get the underlying data! (But this won’t show up if you’re reading VDARE.com on a mobile device).

In January, employers added 257,000 new workers to their payrolls according to the payroll survey. The survey of households reported an even stronger job gain—of 759,000.

January marked the second successive month in which native-born American workers gained jobs while immigrants lost them. But this, of course, is an anomaly. Over the whole 12 months since last January foreign-born employment has risen by

The Subversive Whiteness Of HOUSE OF CARDS

Season_2_Chapter_26[1]

Imagine a corrupt, venal, treacherous power-mad white president—doesn’t look so bad at this point, does it?

Season 3 of House of Cards is released this Friday, February 27 for all of Washington’s binge viewing pleasure. On the surface, the show seems like a typical Narrative production, with deliberately graphic displays of perverted sexuality and an utterly sociopathic white Southern protagonist in Frank Underwood. But the overwhelmingly white key characters and the almost loving portrayal of Underwood’s rise from House Majority Whip to President of the United States contains a more subversive message. The political order in the United States is still controlled by whites—and the SWPL fans of the show secretly know it and love it.

The main character, Frank Underwood, is a “moderate” white Southern Democrat, a practically nonexistent political type in today’s world. However, unlike the right wing Francis Urquhart from the original British House of Cards (both characters boast the acronym FU), Underwood’s ambiguous political position allows lead actor Kevin Spacey to portray convincingly a character utterly devoid of authentic political belief and with no end in mind except his own power. Over the course of the series, Underwood lies, manipulates, and even murders his way to the top. And his wife Claire is arguably

Ann Coulter: Why Is Congress Worrying About ISIS When Illegals Are Killing People Every Day Right Here In America?

annYou can always tell the media are hiding something when they obsessively focus on Muslim atrocities someplace else in the world. Cable TV could cover Muslim atrocities 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from 632 A.D. to the end of time, without repeating themselves.

For at least a year after 9/11, I used to turn on the TV, and if I saw a "Survivor" contestant, I'd think, "Good. No news." These days, I turn on the TV, and if I see former U.N. ambassador John Bolton, I think, "Good. No news."

By now, the public knows more about ISIS than they know about the Kardashians. But it has no idea that the very same Senate Democrats who claimed to oppose Obama's amnesty when they were campaigning are currently filibustering a bill to defund it, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is ready to cave.

ISIS has killed four Americans—in Syria. We're not exactly talking about another 9/11. Here's a tip: If you don't want to be killed by ISIS, don't go to Syria.

Meanwhile, illegal aliens have killed

CNN, DHS and The $PLC’s Blame-Righty Hit Job

The Department of Homeland Security refuses to release a report on "right-wing" terrorism that somehow found its way into CNN's hands last week during the farcical White House summit on Don't Say Islamic Extremism.

Your tax dollars are once again hard at work—defaming conservatives, deflecting from worldwide murderous jihad and denying the public access to information they funded.

CNN splashed the big scoop
