Multiculturalists are fond of saying, “We’re a nation of immigrants” when the United States is actually, as is any healthy country, a nation of citizens. But if current trends continue, we may become a land of disparate and divided immigrants and not really a nation, which involves far more than a political boundary drawn on a map.
New information released by the Census Bureau shows that there are now a record 42.1 million immigrants and illegal migrants in this country; this means the two groups together comprise more than 13 percent of our 320 million population, the highest figure in 105 years. Moreover, the total im(migrant) population has exploded by 1.7 million just since 2014 — with 740,000 people pouring in from Mexico alone.
In the wake of trumped up “racial incidents” such as Ferguson and Baltimore (Freddie Gray case), left-wing activists were front and center demanding that police be equipped with audio and video equipment. “Then we’ll see who the true criminals are,” was the idea. Well, more and more cops now have such equipment, and the truth is coming out:
Most accusations of racial abuse made against police are bunk.
Whatever Professor Minati Roychoudhuri’s field of expertise is, it’s apparently not ethics. After the faculty member of Capital Community College (CCC) in Hartford, Connecticut, was ticketed May 9 for making an illegal lane change, she claimed she was racially profiled by the state trooper who pulled her over. And her accusation did lead to charges — but not the kind she’d hoped for.
Unbeknownst to Roychoudhuri, most Connecticut state troopers have audio and video equipment that records all stops. And the tale of the tape proved that she told numerous lies in an effort to not only beat her ticket, but to visit career damage on the officer, Trooper First Class John Such. The following are the accusations the professor leveled via a letter originally sent to the state commissioner of public safety:
“Oh, look, here’s some organs for you,” said the “doctor” in the video. “They’re all attached. Here’s a stomach, heart, kidney, adrenal…,” she continued, talking casually like a butcher asking a customer what he’d like for tonight’s dinner. Of course, at issue were the body parts of, as the abortionist herself put it, “a baby.”
These are just a few of the stomach-turning details in the fourth video released by the The Center for Medical Progress, which has been documenting Planned Parenthood’s selling of murdered babies' body parts. As the group (which has since released a fifth video as well) describes it, the fourth video shows the abortionist “negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple times to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences.” This makes it harder for Planned Parenthood (PP) to claim it didn’t know it was violating the law.
Walter Palmer the hunter is now the hunted, with worldwide reprobation making him a social pariah and social-media threats driving him into hiding. And now a federal investigation into the Minnesota dentist who allegedly poached famed Cecil the Zimbabwean lion has been launched. Yet Planned Parenthood, revealed on video to have been selling the body parts of murdered babies, is receiving relatively little scrutiny.
While controlled trophy hunting is legal in Zimbabwe (more on that later), Palmer’s problems stem from the accusation that his hunt was illegal; the allegation is that he and his guides lured the lion out of his wildlife sanctuary, that the lion wasn’t “fair game.” Consequently, CBS Minnesota tells us, “The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that the agency is investigating the killing of Cecil the Lion, saying it will ‘go where facts lead.’ The agency made the announcement via Twitter Thursday.” The two men who served as Palmer’s hunting guides in Zimbabwe — Theo Bronkhorst of Bushman Safaris and Honest Trymore Ndlovu, who owns the game farm where the hunt occurred — have already appeared in court. Charged with conducting an illegal hunt, they face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
So-called “LGBT” activists are citing a certain political battle in Houston as being “the next stage of the struggle for full LGBT equality.” But what they advocate truly is a case of some citizens being more equal than others.
At issue is the euphemistically named “Houston Equal Rights Ordinance” (HERO), which expands the number of “protected” (read: privileged) classes to include homosexuals and the “transgender.” The measure, passed by the Houston City Council in May 2014, “prohibits discrimination based on race, sex, ethnicity, military status, marital status, religion, disability, national origin, age, familial status, genetic information, sexual orientation or gender identity,” writes the Huffington Post. And while the ordinance’s provisions have been highly controversial — critics say it would allow people to use the opposite sex’s bathrooms — its path to legality has been no less so.
With the San Francisco woman murdered by one of Barack Obama’s “new Americans,” we should ask: how much innocent blood will be spilled on the altar of the Left’s “fundamental transformation” of America? While callow and cowardly corporations are severing ties with Donald Trump because he dared speak a truth in an age of lies, the reality of far too many of the illegals invading our country is this:
They’re just committing the crimes Americans won’t commit.
While dissenting from the recent Supreme Court decision rubber-stamping same-sex “marriage,” Justice Antonin Scalia warned his colleagues that with “each decision ... unabashedly based not on law” the Court moves “one step closer to being reminded of [its] impotence.” And a new poll shows that another such step has in fact been taken, with more Americans supporting the idea that states should have the right to ignore federal court rulings.
“To allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than no taxation without representation: no social transformation without representation.”
So wrote Justice Antonin Scalia in his dissent in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case in which the Supreme Court declared Friday that faux marriage must be governmentally recognized throughout the nation. And, tragically, critics might say, virtually all American governors are ensuring that a lack of representation will be a reality.
Reacting to the Court ruling, most of the governors in the 13 states that still had operative faux-marriage bans registered notes of complete capitulation, with the exception of two governors who exhibited varying degrees of mild defiance.
