Amnesty Bill Defeated, So Now What?

The American people spoke loudly and won a hard fought victory over the Imperial Congress with the defeat of the Bush/Kennedy/Reid Amnesty Bill (aka S. 1369). Everyone who worked to defeat this very flawed bill deserves a pat on the back. At the same time, we need to remember this victory and remember that WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

However, the problem still remains: a flood of illegal criminal aliens are already here with more coming each and every day. This problem is not going to magically go away. We need to address the specifics of the problems and the best way to do is to start enforcing the multitude of laws that already exist.

As is the case with just about every facet of our life, there are already ample legal measures and laws on the books to take care of the problem without passing any more new laws. For instance, it was decided, by law, to build 850 miles of fence on the border with Mexico yet only 13 miles have been built to date. How long does it take to build a concrete barrier capable of blocking entry? Why isn't this a priority and well on the way towards completion if not actually finished by now?

Next on the list of problems to be fixed is the huge backlog of applications for legal immigration and citizenship. While some might suspect that the backlog was artificially created to try and force support for the Bush/Kennedy/Reid Amnesty Bill, the more reasonable explanation is simple government bungling. The fact is that our federal government has grown so huge that it is out of control and needs to be severely cutback and forced to operate efficiently. Streamlining and focusing on enforcement and processing of legal applications must become the primary mission of the ICE.

One factor that is not often mentioned is that approximately half of the illegals already in the country came here with a legal tourist, student or worker visa and then simply decided to stay once their visa expired. For whatever reasons, the federal government has not figured out yet that they have to track not only the entry but also the exit of legal visitors to determine who has overstayed their welcome. Rather then spending so much time harassing little old ladies at the airport, the federal government must start to collect this information. There are 12 locations in the U.S. that collect this information - the process must be spread to all exit points.

Next up is to remove the ability of cities to declare themselves sanctuary cities. No city is above the laws that the rest of the country follow. Local police must be given the authority to question the immigration status of individuals and to detain and hold illegals until such time as the ICE can send them back home. If this means temporary detention camps, then so be it. As the saying goes, if you do the crime, you better be willing to do the time.

Many of the illegals are criminals before they ever sneak across the border. Once here, they resume their life of crime or gang activity. It is imperative that when they are caught here, they be dealt with swiftly and decisively. Send the message that we are sick and tired of having illegal criminal aliens coming to America to pursue a life of crime.

Removing the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens that are already here is bound to be a tough job. A start to the process is to remove any and all benefits for those that are here illegally. No taxpayer funded services should be available to these individuals. For instance, some states are already providing taxpayer funded education assistance to illegals. This has got to stop. The incentive for staying here illegally must be removed.

Any child born on US soil is considered a legal citizen. It does not matter if the parents are legal residents or not. This must be changed so that only the children of citizens be granted automatic citizenship. To do any less is only to cheapen the value of being a citizen and to insult those who have fought to protect our citizenship. This is one of the few parts of the problem that will require a change in laws.

The list of things that can and must be done goes on far longer than we intend to cover here. Our intent is to point out that there are already answers for the problems and that another piece flawed, unenforceable law is not needed. The tools are there folks, all that is lacking is a government and Congress with he spine to enforce what is already on the books.

By all means, take some time to enjoy the victory America. Just don't forget how we gained this victory and that there is still work to be done. Now that we have the attention of Bush/Kennedy/Reid and the federal government, let's make sure they know that we demand that they do their jobs and fix the problems using the current law and that new law only be added in limited situations (such as changing the law on birthright citizenship).

We won but let's not spend too much time doing a victory dance in the end zone. There is still work to be done.

Open Letter To Sen Coleman Regarding S 1369

June 28, 2007: Congratulations to Senator Coleman for coming back to the right side of this contentious issue. Thank you. By a very close 46 - 53 margin, the Senate today blocked passage of the Bush/Kennedy/Reid Amnesty Bill. This is a huge victory for all Americans and those immigrants who have cared enough to follow the rules and earn their citizenship.

Today the Imperial Senate voted to move forward with S. 1369, the amnesty for illegal criminal aliens bill. Several senators who had been holding the line either caved in or were bought off. Senator Norm Coleman is one of the turncoats.

We have sent messages to Senator Coleman but the chances that anyone other than a low level staffer will ever read them are minimal. Unfortunately, we are not donors and do not represent and special interest groups. If you agree with this message, please contact Senator Coleman immediately and tell him to vote against this travesty.

"Senator Coleman

It is with great disgust and anger that I note your backsliding vote on S 1369, the Amnesty Bill.

What ever you call it, this is an amnesty bill. It is an insult to all legal immigrants and citizens.

You Sir have betrayed the trust and desires of the people you are supposed to be representing choosing instead to side with special interests in pursuit of your own political goals.

While you obviously do not care what the majority of the citizens of this country and state think, I do want to inform you that we will not be supporting any future campaigns of yours for any position. Furthermore, we will be working to insure that you do not get re-elected even if it means voting for that clown Al Franken.

It is obvious why the Imperial Congress has an approval rating of only 14%."

Folks it is important that we all let the Imperial Senate know that we are against the Amnesty Bill, S. 1369. Please call or email your Senator right now and again tomorrow and the next day. Tell them that you are mad as hell and not going to take this crap anymore!

Idiocy On Parade - Harry Reid Speaks

According to U.S. Senate leader Harry Reid, we don't have a problem with 12 - 20 million illegal immigrants. The problem is simply that we have 12 million undocumented Americans". See the See the video.

Hey Nevada - aren't you proud of your Senator? In one statement he has magically solved the problem of illegal immigrants and made is crystal clear that all he really cares about is finding more fools to vote for him and the rest of the liberal idiots running D.C. these days.

What an intellect. What a leader. What a man. What an idiot.

For the record Senator, and as simply as possible: these are not "undocumented Americans". They are 12 - 20 million illegal immigrants who have either crossed the border illegally or came here legally and overstayed their visas. This makes them criminals.

I thought we Minnesota voters had reached a new low when we elected Amy Klobuchar as a U.S. Senator but after listening to Harry Reid, I am now convinced that the voters of Nevada screwed up even worse than we did.

Howard Beale Lives Again

For those not familiar with who Howard Beale might be, he is the character in the 1976 movie "Network" who delivers a rant that has become one of the great moments in movie history.

"You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, [shouting] 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!'"

Well folks, it is high time we bring back the spirit of the Howard Beale character. It is time that we all get off of our overly large rearends and tell the media, the politicians and the rest of the world that we are "MAD AS HELL" and that we are "not going to take this anymore".

Senators Reid and Kennedy and President Bush, your constant attempts to force amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens is despicable. You have lied to us. You try to twist arms and make under the table deals. You hammer out the details in secret meetings and then demand a vote before anyone else has a chance to even read your damned bill.

"We are mad as hell and are not going to take this anymore!"

Congress - your constant investigations and blue ribbon panels are enough to make a person gag and puke. How much of our money are you wasting on grinding your political axes. This is not what you were elected (aka hired by the people) to do.

"We are mad as hell and are not going to take this anymore!"

Big Media - just how stupid do you think we are? Judging from the bias and lies in your so-called news stories, you must think we are real dumber than a sack of hammers. Well Big Media,

"We are mad as hell and are not going to take this anymore!"

Celebrities such as Bono, Baldwin, Crow, Madonna and all the rest of you - the fact that you are an entertainment figure does not confer upon you any special knowledge or insight. Truth is that most of you would probably have a hard time balancing your own check book and yet you presume to preach to us lowly peons.

"We are mad as hell and are not going to take this anymore!"

See folks, it's easy to do. First find something that gets your riled up and then stand up and shout "We are mad as hell and are not going to take this anymore!" And then do something - write an email to your congressional representative. Attend a school board meeting and let your opinion be heard instead of just the voice of the local union and special interests. Turn off the network news. Cancel your newspaper subscription. Talk to your friends and neighbors - you might find that many of them are also mad and willing to do something.

We do not have to take the lies, the deceptions, the self serving investigations, the scandals, the flaunting of the rule of law. We do not have to stand by while overpaid actors, actresses and singers tell us how we should live our lives. We do not have to tolerate those that refuse to be assimilated into our culture and demand that we honor theirs. And we certainly do not have to stomach rewarding 12 million illegal aliens with the precious gift of citizenship.

Join one more time folks : "We are mad as hell and are not going to take this anymore!"

Do You Trust The Government?

The question today is whether or not you trust the federal government? Perhaps more importantly, is there any reason that you should trust the federal government?

The federal government was created to fill very specific purposes: protect our borders, people and interests, to deal with foreign governments so as to protect American interests, to assure interstate commerce and to insure that the Constitution is the law of the land. Let's see how they are doing, shall we ...

How are they doing with protecting our borders? Absolute failure is the only grade possible as 20,000,000 illegal immigrants already here are joined by thousands more each and every day. And even as this is being written, members of Congress are meeting in secret to craft an amnesty bill despite overwhelming public opinion aginst amnesty

We, or more precisely the federal government has not got a clue as to who is actually in this country or what they might have brought with them. For all the feds know Bin Laden could be hiding in NYC and the idiots in DC would never know.

How about protecting the Constitution? Well Christians can not pray in school but our taxes are used to build prayer rooms for Muslims. The 10 Commandments, part of the foundation of this nation is being removed from government buildings one by one. The Patriot Acts, both 1 and 2, takes away personal liberties supposedly to aid in the fight against global terrorism. For all intents and purposes, the Constitution is being ripped to shreds by Congress and a court system that is more interested in making law than in enforcing existing law.

Are the members of the federal government worthy of your respect? A Congressman is taped soliciting and accepting bribes and a bunch of cash is found in his freezer. A President is found out to be having extramarital sex with a young intern in the Oval Office. The Speaker of the House talks about ethics while her son is a major lobbyist benefiting from his bloodlines. The examples go on and on and on. These are not people that are worthy of your trust.

Surely the feds must be doing a good job of making and maintaining treaties? Ask the Lakota, Apache, Cheyenne, Crow, Commanche and all other American Indian tribes how well the feds do at making and keeping treaties. Want a more modern example - NAFTA, the legal first step towards giving away American sovereign rights.

You might say that at least the federal government tells us the truth. That is easily refuted simply by reading the newspapers each day. Lies upon lies and then more lies to try and cover up the old lies.

Ask those that survived Wounded Knee, Ruby Ridge, Waco and the camps where Japanese American citizens were confined during WW2 if they trust the federal government.

Folks, it is time to wake up and take this monster down and replace it with a federal government as envisioned by the Founders. It is time to get off of our dead rearends and make our voices heard, to shout so loud that the DC elites must listen and respond.

This country does not belong to the government. It does not belong to foriegn visitors, to big businesses, to unions, to econuts or to any other self serving group. It belongs to all citizens of the United States. Isn't it about damned time we started taking care of what has been left to us?

Murderapolis Reborn

Charze Jones, 14, is dead, murdered in cold blood as she left a high school graduation party Sunday. She was the 25th murder victim in Minneapolis this year.

Murderapolis is back folks.

While city officials tell the citizens that the problems aren't getting worse, an innocent 14 year old girl is dead - murdered in cold blood [read more].

While city officials and the invisible mayor R.T. Rybek try to force choo choo trains and rooftop hanging gardens on top of city buildings, people are being killed.

While the city councils wrestles with the weighty issue of panhandling. people are being killed.

While city officials spend taxpayer money on cultural diversity, citizens are being killed.

How about Mr. Mayor and City Council? Do any of you have a clue or are you hoping that a new choo choo train will make things right or that the hanging gardens on city hall will convert stone cold gangbangers into choirboys?

In the best of worlds, government leaders would make decisions based on the law and the best interest of the entire city. In actuality, these decisions are made based upon CASH. He who spreads the most cash, wields the most influence. It is all to common to equate big money resources with big businesses, unions and a small handful of wealthy folks. This thinking misses a key point - the largest source of cash is we the people.

Consider the following: if for a little while the majority of folks decided to not spend any money in downtown Murderapolis in protest of the crime, what do you think the result would be? How long do you think it would be before panicked business owners and civic leaders began beating down the doors of city hall demanding that something be done to effectively attack crime in all of Murderapolis?

We the people can also play a large part in attacking crime but cooperating with the local cops. Come forward with the information that helps to remove brutal killers from the streets. Call 911 when you see something that looks wrong. It is your neighborhood, your home, your kids that are being killed. Isn't it time that you took an active and forceful part in resolving the problems?
