President Obamaâ€™s Friday morning speech on immigration reform seriously underwhelmed the Treason Lobby
. The Los Angeles Times
initially had the temerity to headline their story Obama is vague about immigration reform timeline
â€“ following the link to it now goes to the more Obama-friendly lead Immigration reform to get a quiet kickoff by Peter Wallstein
June 20 2009 which seems to be the same story. The problem is succinctly stated:
The biggest obstacle to speedy passage of a citizenship plan, according to interviews with lawmakers and Capitol Hill strategists, is the House. Democrats hold a wide majority there, but at least 40 members represent moderate or conservative swing districts with few Latino voters where legalization plans are unpopular and often derided as "amnesty" for lawbreakers."This a very, very difficult issue," said Rep. Jason Altmire, a Democrat elected in 2006 from rural western Pennsylvania. "The Democratic Party is doing everything they can to capture this very fast-growing community, and I understand that. But I`m not in that camp. I made it clear that I was going to take a very hard line on this, and my district takes a hard line."
In one term, Altmire, from the stateâ€™s 4th District
, has earned a B+
from the invaluable NumbersUSA rating service
. No Pennsylvania Democrat matches this: several Republicans are lower

However, what caught my eye was the venue: the National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast
, which is part of a Conference put on by Esperanza
, generally thought to be the biggest Hispanic Evangelical organization. (VDARE.com rumination: Not what the Roman Catholic Church looked for when it committed to knee-jerk immigration boosterism
. Did the Obamaâ€™s advisors
realize he is effectively endorsing the competition?)
Ah â€“ forget it â€“ they probably donâ€™t know there is a difference.
The central question, though, is why did Obama attend this event, only a few weeks after he declined to observe
the National Day of Prayer at the White House â€“and did not even send a representative to the Congressional event, for the first time since 1993?
Alas, the reason is clear. For Obama, as Steve Sailer has documented (see America`s Half Blood Prince
Chapter 8), religion is an aspect of racial expression
. Wanting to communicate with another tribe, he attended â€“ and with appalling bad taste discussed a totally non-spiritual but ethnically important issue.
The Sotomayor nomination was conclusive: Obama puts race above ev
erything. He slighted the National Prayer Breakfast because he dislikes
White American Christians â€“ and does not want to talk to them.
