Immigration and “Fundamental Transformation”
This article shows how the Dems are using legal and illegal immigration to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”
This article shows why for Reps, conservatives and everyone who believes in the principles on which America was founded and which made her the greatest country that has ever existed, immigration must be the #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5 issue. If we lose on immigration, we lose on everything because the immigrants block vote for the party of Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank etc., and they will continue “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
It is a long article, but very important and worth the time.
Here are some pull quotes:
“The birthplace and final resting place of George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson—and once one of the most reliably-red of red states—is being rapidly turned into a progressive stronghold.”
“Each year the federal government prints millions of visas and distributes these admission tickets to the poorest and least-developed nations in the world.”
“Until 1970, only 1 in 100 Virginians was born outside of the United States; by 2012, 1 in every 9 Virginians is foreign-born.”
“According to the 2013 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Immigration Yearbook, only 8.7 percent of green cards issued by the federal government went to immigrants born in Europe, a product of immigration changes pushed through by Ted Kennedy in 1965.”
“Year after year, the United States continues its annual dispensation of one million plus new green cards, the admission of one million foreign workers, refugees and dependents, and the importation of half a million foreign youths sought by college administrators.”
“One in four U.S. residents is either an immigrant himself or has immigrant parents.”
“The Census Bureau projects that the U.S. will add another 14 million immigrants over the following ten years if green card programs aren’t slashed, pushing the U.S. past all documented historical immigration records in terms of immigrant to population ratio.”
“When a high point was hit last century, then-President Calvin Coolidge hit the pause button for roughly fifty years– producing an era of explosive wage growth. That pause continued until Ted Kennedy ushered in legislation that granted millions of immigration visas to the entire world.”
“The steady gusher of visas happens silently and with little media recognition, yet its effects are more permanent and transformative than many of the most far-reaching foreign policy accords.”
“Immigrants favor Democratic candidates and liberal policies by a wide margin, surveys show, and they have moved formerly competitive states like Illinois firmly into the Democratic column and could turn Republican strongholds like Georgia and Texas into battlegrounds in the years to come.”
“The enormous flow of legal immigrants in to the country — 29.5 million 1980 to 2012 — has remade and continues to remake the nation’s electorate in favor of the Democratic Party.”
“A 2012 study conducted by YouGov that, ‘gauged the partisan preferences of over 2,900 naturalized immigrants, finding 62.5 percent to be Democratic identifiers, 24.6 percent Republican, and 12.9 percent independent.’”
“About one-fifth of the total population of El Salvador resides in the United States.”
“The foreign-born Hispanic welfare rate was nearly three times that of native-born whites. This trend continues for the children of immigrants as well: Native-born Hispanics collected welfare at over twice the rate as native-born whites.”
“A 2011 study examining education attainment in the United States found that of Hispanic immigrants (aged 25 to 34), only nine percent obtain a Bachelor’s degree. For second generation Hispanic immigrants of that same age group, that number increases only slightly: 19 percent obtain a Bachelor’s degree. Amongst the third generation, however, the number recedes: only 16 percent obtain a Bachelor’s degree.”
“While the influence of conservative voters in the Commonwealth continues to diminish, it is ironically Republican officials in Virginia who have led the push to resettle even larger numbers of immigrants inside the state.”
“All net jobs created in the United States from 2000-2014 went to immigrants.”
“By a greater than 6:1 margin, Hispanic voters believe that jobs should go to those already living inside the United States instead of importing new workers from foreign countries. Black voters believe the same, by an extraordinary ratio of almost 30:1. Both groups suffer every day from the federal government’s policy of adding millions of new competitors to the labor pool.”
“Conservative columnist Ann Coulter illustrated: ‘In 1980, Reagan won the biggest electoral landslide in history against an incumbent president, Jimmy Carter. Without the last 40 years of immigration, in 2012, Mitt Romney would have won a bigger landslide than Reagan did.’”
But for Ted Kennedy’s 1965 immigration law that let in tens of millions of poor, low education, low skill people from the world’s poorest and most trouble countries, we would not have Obama, Obamacare, $8 Trillion in debt in 6 years, a weakened military, an agreement to allow the Iranian regime to have nuclear weapons, declining wages for American workers, etc. etc. etc.
Reducing immigration to protect American workers is also very popular with American workers.
Adopt Ann Coulter’s program, 10 year moratorium on all immigration to assimilate the tens of millions of legal immigrants already here and allow wages for American workers to rise. Then allow immigration based on what is in the interest of America, American workers and American taxpayers, not based on what is in the interest of the Dem party.
BTW, if you have not read Ann Coulter’s “Adios America! The Left’s Plan To Turn Our Country Into A Third World Hell Hole,” I strongly recommend it.
Minimum Wage, Immigration and the Price of Labor
Liberals show their “compassion” by wanting the government to force other people to pay more of the other people’s money to low wage workers.
The SB Sun editorializes for a higher minimum wage. http://www.sbsun.com/opinion/20150724/wage-gap-is-only-one-economic-hurdle-for-la-california-us
Leaving aside the loss of jobs for low skill workers, I have some questions:
- Do the laws of supply and demand apply to the labor market?
- Do you think 35 million legal and illegal immigrants in the last 20 years might have an effect on the wages of American workers, of all races and ethnicities?
- Why do the same people pushing a higher minimum wage also support amnesty and open borders?
- If the wages for American workers are not high enough, why are we importing 1.24 million legal immigrants in 2015? http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/07/15/new-immigration-wave-coming-census-bureau-predicts-1-24-million-more-immigrants-to-enter-usa-in-2015/
- If the wages for American workers are not high enough, why have the Dems and Reps allowed 2.5 million more illegal immigrants to enter the country? http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/report-2.5-million-illegal-immigrants-under-obama-400000-yearly/article/2568566
- [BTW, why does the number of illegal immigrants estimated by pro amnesty Dem and Rep politicians always remain at 11 million?]

The Free Enterprise System, Morality, Prosperity, Fairness and Happiness
Milton Friedman delivers the Gettysburg address in brevity and clarity why the free enterprise system, “capitalism” which I do not like because it is an inaccurate Marxist term, is the best economic system yet devised for providing the most prosperity to the most people in 2 minutes 23 seconds.
Arthur Brooks explains why the free enterprise system is also the most moral and fair economic system and the economic system best for producing the most happiness for the most people because it provides for earned success.
“Don’t Eat Your Dog: The Surprising Moral Case for Free Enterprise”
Secretary of State John Kerry told a packed meeting of skeptical House lawmakers on Wednesday that a vote against the Iran nuclear deal would be a vote to “go to war,” according to members leaving the meeting.
The Obama administration will use the next several weeks to pitch skeptical Republicans and Democrats on the deal before Congress considers voting on the deal. Votes are expected on a resolution to disapprove of the deal.
But despite Kerry’s shrill warning about the prospect of armed conflict, some left the meeting saying they weren’t convinced. Among the skeptical Democrats was Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., who said Kerry’s approve-or-else pitch was falling flat.
“I think Congress has a role to play here,” Lipinski said. “And I don’t think that voting ‘no’ means a vote to go to war. And that is what the argument that seems to be put out there, that a vote of no on this is a vote to go to war. I don’t think that’s true.”

The Costs of Immigration, Legal and Illegal, and The Role and Rise of Donald Trump
Stalin is reputed to have said: “The death of one man is a tragedy; the death of millions is a statistic.”
Leaving aside how illegal (and legal) immigrants reduce wages and increase unemployment for American workers, and leaving aside how they burden American taxpayers, ($25 Billion per year in California) let’s look at the cost of illegal immigration to one American family.
[BTW, there is a record number of working age Americans not working, real wages for American workers have fallen, and all net employment gains since 2000 have gone to legal and illegal immigrants, while the Dems and Reps allow 1 Million plus mostly low skill, low education, non English speaking legal immigrants and 2.5 million illegal immigrants under Obama. In 2015, the Census Bureau estimates there will be 1.24 MILLION new legal immigrants. Please see links below.]
For this article, I am not going to get into the debate about how much illegal alien crime there is. First, the proper and acceptable amount of crime against Americans by illegal immigrants is ZERO. Second, the government and MSM do everything they can to conceal illegal immigrant crime and do not keep reliable statistics. Third, despite the government’s and MSM’s best efforts, there are continuing stories in conservative media about heinous crimes against Americans by illegal immigrants. [To learn more about crime against Americans by illegal and legal immigrants, I heartedly recommend Ann Coulter’s book “Adios America!” I also include links at the end of this post if you want to read more.]
Laura Wilkerson testified on July 20 before the Senate regarding murder of her son, Joshua, by illegal immigrant, “DREAMER,” Hermilo Moralez, who qualified for Obama’s first unconstitutional executive amnesty in 2012 (which triggered the deluge of illegal immigrants last summer that is still continuing albeit with less publicity).
Mrs. Wilkerson testified:
Mrs. Wilkerson’s testimony
“Instead of getting Joshua home that day from school, we got an autopsy report.”
Reading from the autopsy: “‘This body is received in a grey body bag. There’s a tag on his toe that bears the name, Joshua Wilkerson. This is a white male weighing a hundred pounds. He is tied up with braided rope — 13 loops around his neck in a slipknot. It goes behind his back through his back belt loop. It goes to his hands and his feet, behind his body. He has multiple fractures in his face and nasal cavity. His throat and his voicebox are crushed.’”
“He was kicked so hard in the stomach that it sent his spleen into his spine, and sliced it in two… The medical examiner said it was torture.”
“‘This body has significant skin loss on his buttocks, his abdomen, his penis, his hands, and his face. He has one stick of gum and a tardy slip in his pocket.”
“This was our family’s 9/11 terrorist attack by a foreign invader, whether you want to recognize it or whether you do not. This government continues to fail or even recognize that we have an issue. Americans are dying daily at the hands of criminals that we don’t even know are here.”
“I will not give up another one of my children so that a foreign person can have a nicer life. I’m not going to do it. You don’t understand the pain. It’s so deep in the soul — in the place you don’t even recognize you have. There aren’t words to describe the pain to someone who has not gone through it. I’m not giving up another kid.”
“Sanctuary city policies scream to the criminal element of illegals in this country: ‘Come to our town USA, we’ll protect you from our terrible policemen. We’ll protect you from these tough American laws, that you — because you had a hard life — are not able to go through the same motion that an American is. It is going to take another life lost by a Senator, a Congressman, the President, even another of today’s heroes, someone from Hollywood before someone in a position moves on this. I urge you: you are in a position to do something about this for Americans.”
“I want you to know that our family is broken, forever. We are forever broken. I don’t want the sympathy. I want you to do something about it. Every one of you sitting here is in a position to do something. Just throw your hat into the ring for Americans. Quit sitting silent because it’s going to help you get a vote. Throw your hat in the ring and take care of American families.”
Every Federal Dem and Rep politician that refuses to enforce America’s immigration laws is partially responsible for the torture murder of Joshua Wilkerson, the murder of Kate Steinle, and so many others. Every state and local Dem and Rep politician , every business, every chamber of commerce, every labor union, every liberal foundation, every open border illegal immigration advocacy group, and every MSM outlet, editor and reporter, who aid and abet illegal immigration is partially responsible for the torture murder of Joshua Wilkerson, the murder of Kate Steinle, and so many others.
Mrs. Wilkerson testified:
“I thank you to Mr. Trump for getting a message out about the nation in two minutes… that countless families like my own have been trying to say for five to six years. It feels good to be heard whether you love him, or whether you don’t, I felt heard.”
Politicians often use people for props at press conferences or meet with them in front of cameras to show how much the politician “cares.”
Recently Donald Trump met privately in Beverly Hills with families who had someone in their family killed by an illegal immigrant before holding a press conference with them to publicize their stories and the problem of illegal immigrant crime against Americans. Donald Trump took time to listen to their stories with no TV camera present. Here is a link to pictures from the meeting. http://us4.campaign-archive1.com/?u=03c427bceddf31727d1b5026d&id=e5c2f4d1e5&e=6f1dc8a01d
What other candidate is willing to meet with families who had someone killed by an illegal immigrant?
What other candidate is willing to speak for Mrs. Wilkerson, her murdered son, Joshua, and the thousands and thousands of Americans and their families who were, are and will be killed, raped and robbed by illegal immigrants?
That is in part why Donald Trump, with all of his flaws, is leading the race for the Rep nomination for president.
Donald Trump can’t be bought and won’t back down.
Again, the proper and acceptable amount of crime by illegal immigrants against American is ZERO!!!
That the fact Trump is leading causes fear, consternation, annoyance and puzzlement to the Establishment Reps, MSM, and the vast coalition of Dems, Establishment Reps, big business, the Chamber of Commerce i.e. Crony Capitalism, labor unions, MSM, and leftist political groups supporting illegal immigration, 1 Million plus per of legal immigration and open borders, is icing on the cake.
That coalition is doing everything possible to stop Donald Trump because he is willing to put Americans, American workers and American taxpayers ahead of illegal immigrants. While they claim “compassion” and “sympathy” for illegal immigrants, that coalition puts their selfish political and economic interests, ahead of America, American workers and American taxpayers. Even if their compassion is genuine, they are putting the interests of foreigners ahead of Americans. The last thing they want is anyone blowing the whistle of their immigration scam and scheme.
For that coalition, Joshua Wilkerson, Kate Steinle and so many others are unfortunate but necessary casualties to achieve their political and economic ends.
Is their “compassion” and “sympathy” for illegal immigrants genuine? Ask yourself a question. If immigrants, legal and illegal when the can vote or vote illegally, voted 70% for Reps, how much support would there be for illegal immigration and massive legal immigration?
As Mrs. Wilkerson said: “Quit sitting silent because it’s going to help you get a vote. Throw your hat in the ring and take care of American families.”
At this point, only Donald Trump is demonstrating his willingness to do so.
The assisted suicide of Christianity (and thereby America)
“According to a poll reported on today by ABC News, 83% of Americans self-identify as Christians:
If that is the case, then one has to ask how have we arrived at a cultural whistlestop where bastardy is commonplace, divorce is rampant, homosexuality idealized by cultural trendsetters and given pride of place by the courts, and babies are chopped up and sold for parts?…”
This illustrates part of the answer. [The Chicago Theological Seminary is distributing condoms promoting gay sex.]
We know the Christianity is key to America and American culture. Hence the Left’s long war against Christianity, in which some Christians and liberal Christian churches are now participating.
“Culture is upstream of politics.” Andrew Breitbart
“We are in a long war for the soul of America.” Andrew Breitbart [And we are losing the war.]
Reverend Charles Finney foretold our situation today in 1873, although it is probably worse than he could have imagined.
“Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits. If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree. If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”
As Ann Coulter said recently: “It is time for Christians to realize the big thing is taken care of. Could you be courageous and fight for the most consequential nation on Earth?”
