Conservatism Inc. Uselessness: Who Cares About Amnesty? We Won On The Export-Import Bank!

210px-US-ExportImportBank-Seal.svg[1]On May 12-13, 1865, over a month after Lee surrendered at Appomattox and the Civil War was all but over, Confederate Colonel John Salmon Ford repulsed Union forces led by Colonel Theodore Barrett in the Battle of Palmito Ranch. In a war that took the lives of over 600,000 Americans, only four soldiers died in that battle. Three weeks later, the final Confederate troops surrendered.

If Conservatism Inc. was leading the Confederacy, it would be celebrating Palmito Ranch as a great victory and ignoring the larger surrender. Case in point: Beltway Right jubilation over the Export Import Bank’s [Ex-Im] temporary lapse of authority. (The “AUTHORITY HAS LAPSED” image above is what you see when you go to their web page.)

Consider everything else that happened in the last few days: The Supreme Court, composed of a majority of GOP-appointed justices, upheld disparate impact, approved Obamacare, and imposed gay marriage on the entire country. Over some conservative objections, the Republican Congress awarded President Obama expanded trade authority. Meanwhile, Obama successfully exploited the Dylann Roof shooting to demonize the Confederate Flag in particular and conservatives in general. The leftist Independent Weekly chortled it was “ Conservatives’ horrible, no good, very bad week—now with gay marriage! ” [by Jeffrey Billman, June 26, 2015]

Yet American Enterprise Institute’s Timothy Carney cheered at The Washington Examiner about “an early and visible victory for the GOP's free-market forces over the forces of K Street, which for so long held a monopoly on the party” [ Corporate welfare takes a blow , June 30, 2015]. Heritage Action triumphantly declared: “Change doesn’t come fast or easy in Washington, but over the past three years conservatives created the conditions that caused the Export-Import Bank to expire and enter liquidation” [ We did it! Export-Import Bank Expires Tonight , Heritage Action, June 30, 2015]. The Heritage Foundation’s Jim DeMint called it a “win to consumers, and taxpayers can now look forward to a shrinking threat of bailouts” [ Statement from Heritage President Jim DeMint on Expiration of the Export Import Bank , Heritage Foundation, July 1, 2015]. Reason’s Nick Gillespie celebrated it a “victory against corporatism at its worst” [ Crony-capitalist export-import bank loses authorization for First Time in 81 Years! , July 1, 2015]

Mexican Meddlers Even Madder About Trump—But Not About White Mexican Official Making RACIST!!! Fun Of Indians...

Mexicans are even madder about Donald Trump because he has adroitly seized on an illegal alien’s brutal murder of Kate Steinle to expose our dysfunctional immigration system and the unquestionably low quality of many Hispanic immigrants— and he won’t back down. When Jeb Bush got on his high horse suggesting that Trump’s remarks offended him personally, because of Bush’s Mexican-born wife, Trump responded “Jeb believes illegal immigrants who break our laws when they cross our border come ‘out of love.’” [ Indignant Jeb Bush Says He Takes Donald Trump’s Remarks Personally, by Patrick Howe, NYT, July 4, 2015]

But Mexicans should remember the old proverb about people who live in glass houses. Dr. Lorenzo Cordova Vianello is a white Mexican government official whose telephone conversation ridiculing an indigenous leader was made public. And he has kept his job—something now utterly unimaginable in the “racist” United States. It’s a revealing glimpse into Mexican hypocrisy.

CE-LorenzoCordova[1]Dr. Cordova [Email him] is the Consejero Presidente of INE, the Instituto Nacional Electoral, the Mexican government body which oversees Mexican elections. As you can see, he’s a white Mexican.

We don’t see many “white Mexicans” in the U.S.—notorious Treason Lobby operative Univision anchor Jorge Ramos is one—but they largely run things south of the border.

Mexico doesn’t collect racial and ethnic data in its census, so it’s hard to tell how many white Mexicans there are. A common estimate of Mexico’s racial breakdown: 9% white (mostly but not entirely Spanish-descended), 30% Indian, 60% mestizo (people with both European and Indian ancestors) and 1% other.

That’s an approximation. Mexico has a racial

Happy Independence Day From!

Writing_the_Declaration_of_Independence_1776John Adams, discussing the vote that had just been taken by the Continental Congress in favor of independence, said that he believed—and he was correct—that the Declaration Of Independence would be
“celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this Continent to the other from this time forward forever more.”

By “guns” he meant saluting guns loaded with blank charges—firing loaded guns in the air is more of a Cinco De Mayo kind of thing.

The Fourth of July is also celebrated at with a roundup of Independence Day Columns—this is it! See also, today, July Fourth Fear: Can Free Speech (And America) Survive A Minority-Dominated Supreme Court?

July Fourth Fear: Can Free Speech (And America) Survive A Minority-Dominated Supreme Court?

Supreme Court usurpationThe late June run of decrees from America’s senior legislative body, ludicrously misnamed the Supreme “Court”, have inflicted on America the most appalling news of serious threat in many years—definitely not since Pearl Harbor allowed the Roosevelt Administration to get its way and plunge the country into World War II. But that was a foreign war. In my view the correct comparison: the First Battle of Bull Run at the start of the (soon-to-be airbrushed out) Civil War. That was when the Republican Pols planning to loot the South with high tariffs, and the Abolitionists lusting to wreck Southern society for ideological reasons, got their first shattering experience of Confederate military prowess. At that point both sides realized a long and bloody struggle against what had been fellow countrymen was probable. That is what Americans face again on this July 4th.

In effect, the Supreme “Court” has facilitated a coup d’état by Obama’s Minority Occupation Government. The inevitable reversing of these measures could well take many years and the effect within families and across generations is likely to be terribly divisive and destructive.
