    Background: The anti-Islamist party of the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna) recently made huge success in national elections. Despite the fact that Swedes drive around in $35 000 Volvos and build even larger homes for themselves than other rich people like Americans and Australians do, something obviously is rotten in this neighbor state of Denmark and it's not surströmming (google it!). Sooner, it's a failed policy on immigration. Anyhow, this is the analysis of former (Socialist or at least Social Democratic) PM Persson who once expressed doubts about the numbers of non-Western immigrants Sweden has let in. The article: "Former Swedish Prime...

    The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition,

    We often hear about the glory days of immigration when America threw open her arms to the huddled masses, but one thing you don’t hear about is how those people had to make it on their own without a government safety net. There was plenty of private charity, which was highly encouraged, but health care, a minimum-wage job, college entrance, housing, legal representation, and education certainly weren’t promised—not like today.

Along those lines, the powers that be in Montgomery County are very concerned about low voter turnout. So concerned, in fact, the all Democrat County Council formed a “Right to Vote” Task Force to come up with ways to encourage more people to vote. The task force produced a 76-page report with more than a few suggestions that could raise a few eyebrows. Recommendations 1-3 are: 1. The Task...

This is made even more dangerous by what organization determines who is are refugees and who aren’t.

The OIC is a modern day caliphate made up of 56 countries and the Palestinian terrorists.

    As thousands of illegal immigrant juveniles cross the southern border of the U.S., the knee-jerk response of media has been to either support the migration as benefiting those who are fleeing violence of Central American countries, or to complain about the potential health risks and costs of the movement. Neither of these perspectives explains the real reason the illegal immigrant juveniles are being brought into the U.S. They are being brought into the country to serve the Democratic National Machine. Throughout recorded history governments have used their power to bring people into their countries from neighboring areas. This was done by the Egyptians,...

A new poll reports that the American people are now more likely to trust Republicans to handle immigration and less likely to trust Democratic plans to offer illegals a path to citizenship (aka amnesty). Many people have believed this for some time. But it is now confirmed in a poll taken by the pro-amnesty Wall Street Journal, so it must be so. The new survey is decisive; 35 percent say the Republican Party would do a better job on immigration while only 27 percent...

The preparations by Texas law enforcement agencies are in response to recently discovered plans by militia groups to attempt closing several international bridges. The militia groups' plans are intended to be protests against the federal government's failure to secure the border between the U.S. and Mexico. The plans call for militia groups to begin blocking traffic on an undisclosed number of international bridges in the Rio Grande Valley on Sept. 20th, 2014. “We will not allow...

    America's children are paying the price of Obama's largesse. We were warned An agent stationed at the McAllen, Texas, Border Patrol station told a radio host Sunday that diseases carried by illegal aliens crossing the Rio Grande are “slipping through the cracks” and will soon begin affecting the entire nation, possibly even “coming to your town.” Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera said that diseased illegals were being dumped at various areas around the country. Pay close attention to where: “It’s not always the ideal medical care,” Cabrera confessed, “and a lot of it is slipping through the cracks. I read...
  • Americas Sovereignty Meltdown (VANITY)

    Three videos. An online find: "Several weeks ago I was made aware of a bus of illegal invaders at the Social Security Office here in Memphis. I went to check it out for myself and couldn't believe what I saw. A bus load of Illegal Invaders with Mexico Passports, and Visas, being issued Social Security Numbers. At the time I was unsure if they were there for money or something else. What I've learned is that they were issued the passports at the border as they crossed and then at our "The Tax Payers Expense" driven all day and night...
  • Cruz: 'Obama Has Decided This Election Will Be a Referendum on Amnesty'

    By delaying his promised executive action on immigration until after the November election, "President Obama has decided this election will be a referendum on amnesty," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Tuesday. Cruz is demanding that the "do-nothing" Senate, led by Harry Reid (D-Nev.), allow every senator to vote on Republican legislation that would end "the promise of amnesty" by defunding President Obama's DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. "We are here today to call on one very simple thing, which is for Harry Reid to allow the Senate to do its job, to actually show up and schedule...

    Loyola University Chicago’s Stritch School of Medicine appears to be the first – and so far only – medical school in the country to openly admit illegal immigrants – and has seven such students currently enrolled, a campus official tells The College Fix. Under Stritch’s admission policy, illegal aliens who fall under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status, also known as DACA and “DREAMers,” are eligible to be admitted to the medical school. DACA was created in 2012 when President Obama signed an executive order that stated, in effect, that illegal immigrant children who were brought to the United States...

    Worth posting not because Cruz actually intends to try to shut down the government before the midterms but because Democratic leaders and lefty media will gorge on the mere possibility. Now that amnesty’s dead until November, they need something to goose their base. Another shutdown scare will do nicely. The tea party hero, who aggressively pushed the anti-Obamacare strategy that spurred last year’s 16-day government shutdown, has seized on immigration executive moves from the Obama administration as the root cause of the border crisis this summer. Although Obama said this weekend that he would delay any executive actions on immigration...

    Resident Barack Obama has moved from being disingenuous on immigration to downright undecipherable. Earlier this year, the administration promised a groundbreaking executive action on immigration before summer's end. Over the weekend, aides announced that the big new change essentially won't happen until after the midterm elections. What's up? Obama told "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd on Sunday: "What I'm saying is that I'm going to act because it's the right thing for the country, but it's going to be more sustainable and more effective if the public understands what the facts are on immigration, what we've done on unaccompanied...

    For many Democrats in Congress, Henry Cuellar is persona non grata. The House Democrat from the border city of Laredo, Texas, sounds more like a Republican in his relentless criticism of President Barack Obama’s handling of the border crisis. He joined forces with a top Senate Republican on legislation that would make it easier to deport child migrants. And he was the lone Democrat to back the House GOP’s $694 million emergency border funding bill. The maneuvering infuriated Democrats, who privately fumed that Cuellar gave bipartisan veneer to a deportation plan the party overwhelmingly abhors. The frustration is especially deep...

    “This is the most transparent administration in history” said President Obama in February, 2013. When I bought my first convertible, the rear view mirror was clear and perfect at day one. It was made of plastic so that it could fold into the back of the car when I put the top down. By the time I sold that car six years later, the rear window was a disaster; one could barely see light through the window. The past six years have proven to be a perfect simile to my first convertible. There may have been transparency at the beginning...
