Obama Speaks, VDARE.com Refutes!

My quick thoughts on President
Obama`s



much-promoted May 10 immigration speech
:

But he is urging not merely the
amnestying of millions of



undocumented Democrats
, allowing them full access to the



American job market
,
but also



increasing legal immigration
—already at record
levels. 

Simply put, under Obama the
Democratic Party has definitively abandoned the American
working class. Based on his priorities in this speech,
it has now unmistakably become an alliance of


ethnic
chauvinists

and plutocrats like Michael ("
Billionaire Golfers
for Open Borders
")
Bloomberg.




  • Still, Obama still
    felt compelled to disguise his argument in economic
    terms
    .

This is a confession of political
weakness. Obama knows that



Americans oppose amnesty
and are against more
immigration,

But in fact, among economists the
consensus on immigration has been clear for 20 years,
and was confirmed by the



National Academy of Sciences
report


The New Americans
back in 1997. My
paraphrase:



Americans do not benefit, in aggregate, from
immigration. It does increase Gross Domestic Product—but
the bulk of that is captured by the immigrants
themselves, through their wages. Once transfer payments
are factored in, American taxpayers are





paying for their own dispossession.

However, immigration does cause a transfer of income
within the native-born community—from



labor
to the owners of capital,
through its impact
on wages. (See




Bloomberg
,
above)
.

Nevertheless, Obama can still get
away with citing his
"
economic"
flim flam—because the truth has been
suppressed.

This is an expression of the Treason
Lobby`s cultural power—and



a reason
you should

[
Remarks
by the President on Comprehensive Immigration Reform in
El Paso, Texas
, May 10, 2011]

Put aside the appalling phenomenon
of a U.S. President again praising immigration
law-breakers among his audience, as he



did

in his



Miami-Dade

commencement speech.

Look what happened when Obama


claimed
,
albeit with



stunning disingenuousness,
that the Border Fence
has been built:


THE PRESIDENT: The fence is –


AUDIENCE:  Booo!


THE PRESIDENT:  The fence is now basically
complete.


AUDIENCE MEMBER:  Tear it down!"


[
Houston
Chronicle
Transcript Of Speech, As Delivered
]

Obama did not reprove his
audience. These are


Reconquistas
that the Democrats are
enlisting.

Again, look what happened when the
President claimed, with



more stunning disingenuousness,
that—


"…We have gone above and beyond what was requested by
the very Republicans who said they supported broader
reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. 
All the stuff they asked for, we`ve done.  But even
though we`ve answered these concerns, I`ve got to say I
suspect there are still going to be some who are trying
to move the goal posts on us one more time.


AUDIENCE MEMBER:  They`re racist!"

In Obama`s America, of course,
"
racism"
is



essentially illegal
—the charge is meant to end debate,
and probably get the utterer charged with a
"hate crime".

But again the President did not
reprove his audience—indicating his utter indifference
to


sincere
concerns for the American worker
. And for the American
nation.

Well, at VDARE.com, we want to move
the goal posts. And we
don`t care
what names we`re called.

These are the prerequisites that we
regard as fundamental to any renewed immigration debate:


And by "subsidies",, we include ending


free education for


illegals
(
overthrow
Plyler vs. Doe
)



and ending





Birthright citizenship.

You won`t hear these prerequisites
discussed anywhere else.
