I hear you knocking...but you can't come in

Do foreign nationals have the right to enter our country with the intent to demonstrate and try and change our laws, customs and elections?
“The plan was simple. Montrealer Sasha Dyck and some friends would drive to Washington to join the Women's March. But when the six Canadians and two French nationals reached the border at Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, in Quebec, they ran into trouble.
U.S. border agents asked what they planned to do in the United States. “We said we were going to the Women’s March on Saturday and they said, ‘Well, you’re going to have to pull over,’ ” Dyck told the Guardian. Agents then searched their car and examined their cellphones, according to Dyck. Each member of the group was fingerprinted and had their pictures taken.
Finally, after two hours, the agents told Dyck and his friends to turn around. “They said, ‘You’re headed home today,’ ” Dyck told the Guardian. Officials warned that they’d be arrested if they tried to cross at a different spot this weekend, Dyck said. “And that was it, they didn’t give a lot of justification.”


Uh, Dyck. They didn’t have to give you justification. You don’t have the right to come into our country for any reason. 

I mean, the Left is having kittens over Russia, supposedly, hacking a political organization’ s email system and passing it on to WikiLeaks for distribution to the Wide Wide World via the WWW. Why? Because it is an attempt to influence.  Now that being true…..what is demonstrating in the streets?

Now I know that foreigners within the US have the same rights for due process within our legal system. But those rights are limited.  For example….They don’t have the right to vote.  They don’t have the right to drive a car without an acceptable license….Or

But there is the First Amendment that says.....”…..  or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The crux of this is the words “..right of the people.” Who are the “people?”  Well, the Second  Amendment says, “…..the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

That makes it plain. “The people are citizens.” Various laws/regulations make it plain what the words mean.


“In general, non-immigrant aliens are forbidden to possess any firearms or ammunition. But there is a big exception for a legal alien who:

...is in possession of a hunting license or permit lawfully issued in the United States
(See Title 18, USC Chapter 44, Section 922, part (y)(2) for details.)

Green-card holders and immigrant aliens who do not yet have their green card are both okay under federal law, although many people (including gun dealers, law enforcement officers, etc.) are not aware of the distinction or the hunting license exception, and erroneously think that either you have a green card, or you can't have guns.


Also, non-citizen cannot purchase a firearm from a federally licensed firerams dealer unless they have been a resident of their state for 90 days. So, no, tourists on short visits cannot walk into guns stores to get "protection" during their trip. Sorry. (I've been asked that multiple times.)”

So you can’t come into this country with the intent of demonstrating and trying to influence us in the relationship with our government anymore than you hack the DNC legally.

Yes, it was a hate crime




Well, the Chicago police have finally decided to charge the 4 black “yutes,” to steal a name from “My Cousin Vinny.” Which is all about how a smart intelligent super hero from New York “lawyers” circles around those dumb ignorant southerners.  Especially the supposedly educated prosecutor and  judge.

All good clean fun and games but what do we have left after snickering at the one liners and ogling the heroine’s fantastic  body?? The furtherance of stereotypes that would never be allowed if the southern lawyers were black. Which, by the way, there are many of.

But I digress.

What the 4 black yutes are charged with are two variations of hate crime, battery and kidnapping…and it only took those Chicago Yankees a little over two days to figure it out. Maybe it was the black yutes making the mentally challenged white 18 year old curse Donald Trump that they couldn't grasp.

Now we shall go through the agony of watching the Left claim that it wasn’t anything in the media that torched these 4 black yutes off. It was just a reaction to Trump saying he would close the borders ….I mean those policy discussions can get pretty heated at times.

No, it couldn’t be things like this:

But I will say it anyway. There are other ways to get rid of Trump other than impeachment. It has been my hope that there is a cabal of realists in the national security apparatus who know how dangerous a President Trump will be to national security and already has plans underway to deal with that threat."


Naw. Not a chance.

Trump had better have some good protection. Yon Cassius has a lean and hungry look. And he is pissed off about loosing.

Hurt feeling



Well, MKS got his feelings hurt because I referred to his blather as “blathering” so he has run off to his safe space and won't  play.

I should have referred to him as “Snowflake.”

Anyway, here are some words he has used…

”Dude, Jimbo, …. Mr. History buff....

You have such an inferiority complex, apparently stemming from your origins in Appalachia or rural Tennessee,.....

And more:

“Well, that was my attempt at reason with you.  But bigotry is hard to set aside.”

Calling someone by a made up name, dude and a bigot is okay… But don’t refer to blather as blather,

And the final..

I would love Armando to have a discussion with you.  I guess that would last, what, maybe about two seconds.  He would set you straight PDQ.


I guess he thinks Big Brother can save the day.  Yes, I should have called him “Snowflake.”

Blatheriings from a Leftie


Here’s where we were.

What you fail to see (5.00 / 1) (#45) 
by MKS on Sun Jan 01, 2017 at 09:16:39 PM CST 
is that Latino culture is a part of American culture.
Just look at the Southwest.  Latinos have been here far longer than Anglos.  Latinos have been the bedrock in Colorado for generations.
You think that only white Protestants (you have been on a riff lately against Southern European culture, or, in other words, Catholics) from the non urban Midwest or South represent American culture.
You definitely exclude Muslims (bye, bye Kareem and Muhammed Ali) and those from the Middle East. Not Americans or not American culture.
And Jewish people, not part of "American" culture either.
The beauty and strength of our country is how diverse it is, that we take from all cultures.  This is why Americans succeed so much--we adapt and absorb and change.  This is what Obama so epitomized, and probably why you detested him so much, posting a racist photo on your blog of bone through his nose.  
You do not see America as stronger for its diversity, but fear it, and want to isolate "American" to some version of the white Protestant 


MKS, you strain and strain and when you can’t answer my points trot out a bunch of straw men and false claims.

First of all, I have spent a great deal of time outside the US both as a military service member and as a civilian under contract to the State Department and as a civilian promoting business alliances.  But I never pretended to understand the cultures of those countries.  

I did, and do, believe in observing the results. The Russian culture created the climate that allowed communism to take root. The German culture created the climate that allowed Nazism to take root.  And the Southern European culture, which was imported to the “new world” created a feudal society that has not served the peons well. The result has been an exodus to America. They see what we have.  They want to improve their lives. Nothing in that is unusual or new. But the result has been an invasion of 13 million illegal aliens.
And like any group of 13 millions some are criminals. Some have communicable diseases.

And nothing in any of my comments has anything to do with how long Latinos have been in the SW.  That has nothing to do with the problem of a mass influx of illegal aliens.

To   repeat, my comments have pointed out that the Native Americans – NA – had some very nasty characteristics and so did the Southern Europeans, as I noted in my comments.

The result of the invasion was a culture throughout central and South America that has not been successful in establishing a modern democracy that serves its lower class citizens well.  Indeed, it has created a culture of two groups. The “Haves” and the “Have Nots.”

And all of your blathering about the American culture or diversity has nothing to do with that. But to sooth your feelings, I believe in “E pluribus unum.” Out of many, one.

The Left’s. and your, definition of Diversity is a bunch of separate groups with their own goals and demands that the other groups abide by. That is balkanization and all we need to do is look at Europe to see what that can lead to.

As for the Mulsims, you again make things up. My point has been that we are importing tens of thousands of people that we cannot vet. That’s stupid. Plus:

A significant minority (21%) of Muslim Americans say there is a great deal (6%) or a fair amount (15%) of support for extremism in the Muslim American community. 

And that’s the Pew Research Center, not BreitBart


But I digress.

My point is that we have a problem originating south of our borders and the problem will not cure itself. So my solution is.

1.       Close the borders.  Build the wall.
2.       Give all those here, because you can’t deport 13 million, who pass a criminal check, Green Cards so that they can live openly.
3.       By closing the borders you will create a shortage of labor. Labor is a commodity just like peaches. The shortage will allow the workers to demand, and get, wage increases and better working conditions.
4.       Provide a path to citizenship.


Now, what do you find wrong with that?

These got us to where we're at now



Why are we surprised?

Watching the media play fan boy for Hillary is disgusting.

Watching supposedly intelligent women, and some men, claim to be insulted by what Trump said is scary.

I say scary because there is a chance that they are sincere. If that is true then we are indeed in deep trouble.

We are endowed with football players making millions to play a game disrespect our country.

While idiots in the media defend them as “It is their right.”

These same idiots cannot grasp that with rights comes responsibility.

These media idiots are the parents of the children who rush to find a safe place when they feel insulted.

Do you think they would have gone ashore on D Day? Would they have stood on Cemetery Ridge?  I don’t think so. I think they would find a way to accommodate Hitler and Tojo. I think they would have cut and ran and the South would have won and slavery would exist here, today. Not just in many Islamic theocracies.

Trump spoke of grabbing some female by her pussy. I think he has a whole generation to choose from.  And not just females. There are way too many metro sexual males for us to limit Trump.

What Bush did before 9/11



One more time I read this false narrative…Bush and Cheney failed to protect the country and 9/11 happened.

Now I am not a big fan of Bush. He started losing me right after 9/11 when he started this “Islam is the religion of peace” nonsense. And his strategy of “nation building” without first absolutely destroying the current leaders and totally occupying the country long enough to change the culture…see WWII and Germany and Japan…was totally wrong. Although Obama, against the advice of his military leaders, executed Bush’s mistake when he could have corrected it but he did not and ISIS was created.  But I digress.

First of all, remember that Clinton had an opportunity to arrest Osama bin Ladin but didn’t.  This was despite the fact the first WTC attack happened in January ’93 and we had suffered numerous attacks outside the US on US facilities. bin Ladin was offered to us in ’96 by Sudan and even though we knew what was going on Clinton refused saying incorrectly that we had no reason to hold him and then blaming the Saudi’s for not arresting him.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qgKAsfp_lc

And we had other opportunities to kill him but they were never completed. There was even a Grand Jury Indictment on bin Lain issued 11/6/1998 .  Read:  http://fas.org/irp/news/1998/11/98110602_nlt.html

Now when Bush took office in January 2001 the USS Cole attack had just happened and Bush decided to keep Clarke in his administration , who had been Clinton’s National Security Adviser, to insure that nothing was dropped in the transition.  Clarke’s comments are instructive as to what went on.

The following transcript documents a background briefing in early August 2002 by President Bush's former counterterrorism coordinator Richard A. Clarke to a handful of reporters, 

Clarke: “….the Clinton administration had a strategy in place, effectively dating from 1998. And there were a number of issues on the table since 1998. And they remained on the table when that administration went out of office —…”

Now stop and think. A number of issues had been unresolved since ’98. That was over two years. Does that tell you that bin Ladin and the Taliban was not a priority with Clinton? It does me and it should you. Let’s go on.

“…the Bush administration decided then, you know, in late January, to do two things. One, vigorously pursue the existing policy, including all of the lethal covert action findings, which we've now made public to some extent.

And the point is, while this big review was going on, there were still in effect, the lethal findings were still in effect. The second thing the administration decided to do is to initiate a process to look at those issues which had been on the table for a couple of years and get them decided.

So, point five, that process which was initiated in the first week in February, uh, decided in principle, uh in the spring to add to the existing Clinton strategy and to increase CIA resources, for example, for covert action, five-fold, to go after Al Qaeda”

Repeat. “…..to increase CIA resources, for example, for covert action, five-fold, to go after Al Qaeda”


And yeah, that’s Fox News…but it is a verbatim transcript and other reporters were there. So don’t try the old “it’s Fox and I don’t believe BS on me.

Bush kept what was going on in place, resolved years old issues and increased resources 500%.

Now, what did we get out of these increased efforts. Let’s fast forward to another interview, this time with Bush’s NSA, Condi Rice. Now remember, at this point Clarke had been fired by Rice and written a book critical of Bush. So this interview was Rice’s response to Clarke. Now understand. She is using Clarke’s own WRITTEN words.

 And here's the note that Dick wrote to me on September 15th: "When the era of national unity begins to crack in the near future, it is possible that some will start asking questions like, did the White House do a good job of making sure that intelligence about terrorist threats got to the FAA and other domestic law enforcement authorities, as the attached paper, which was sent to you in July, and the e-mail, also July, note, in late June the Interagency Counterterrorism Security Group,which I chair, warned of an upcoming, spectacular al Qaeda attack that would be qualitatively different. We convened on 5 July a special meeting of domestic federal law enforcement agencies because we could not rule out the possibility that the attack would be in the U.S." In fact, that was the meeting that we asked him to convene.

"At the special meeting on July 5 were the FBI, Secret Service, FAA, Customs, Coast Guard, and Immigration. We told them that we thought a spectacular al Qaeda terrorist attack was coming in the near future." That had been had been George Tenet's language. "We asked that they take special measures to increase security and surveillance. Thus, the White House did ensure that domestic law enforcement including the FAA knew that the CSG believed that a major al Qaeda attack was coming, and it could be in the U.S., and did ask that special measures be taken."


At this point I wish one of you Lefties would tell me what else Bush could have done. He had increased resources. The CIA used those resources and said an attack was coming. A meeting was convened and all the agencies were warned 70 days before the attack.
