    Arguing that "blood is thicker than water," China's Ambassador to the United States Xie Feng called upon "fellow compatriots and Chinese students to serve the motherland. Your support, involvement and contribution would be most valuable. A China marching toward modernity is a boon to the Chinese people and to countries across the world." After years of repression of dissenters, enslavement of minorities, and theft of intellectual property rights, only 15% of Americans hold a favorable view of the Chinese nation. The Ambassador called this unfavorable view "myopic and ill-informed. The American government has also been quite active in repressing dissent...

    At a meeting of the heads of Canada, the United States, and Mexico in Mexico City this week, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador expressed his gratitude to President Biden for keeping his promise to discontinue the border wall construction started by his predecessor. "An estimated 40 million Mexicans now live north of where the border used to be," Obrador said. "In a few more decades Mexicans will constitute a majority of the citizens living in the territories violently stolen from us by their President Polk in 1848. They will vote to be peacefully reunited with their ancestral home. The...

    Today in history, on October 21, 1094, a small force of Christian knights destroyed a massive Muslim horde in Spain, where the Jihad and Reconquista had been raging. Some years earlier, the Almoravids, a North African group committed to jihadist teaching and led by the emir Yusuf bin Tashfin, began to pour into Spain to aid their Islamic counterparts, the Moors, who had suffered several significant defeats to the Christians in recent years. In 1086, the Muslims and Christians clashed at Sagrajas. The Christians were annihilated; their king barely managed to escape with a dagger stuck in his thigh. Afterwards,...
  • Christopher Columbus ... crusader?

    10/12/2022 7:10:26 PM PDT · by DeweyCA · 35 replies ^ | 10-12-22 | The Stream
    While all this is true, Columbus stands for and is a reminder of something else that is now little known if not completely (and intentionally) forgotten: he was, first and foremost, a Crusader — an avowed enemy of the jihad. His expeditions were, first and foremost, about circumventing and ultimately retaliating against the Islamic sultanates surrounding and terrorizing Europe — not just “finding spices” as we were taught in high school. … Many Europeans were convinced that if only they could reach the peoples east of Islam — who if not Christian were at least “not as yet infected by...

    Nearly thirteen hundred years ago today, on May 28, 722,* a little-known but profoundly important battle was waged, setting the tone for the next eight hundred years of Christian/Muslim “coexistence” in Spain: the Battle of Covadonga. Ten years earlier, Arabs and Africans — “Moors,” under the banner of Islam — had “godlessly invaded Spain to destroy it,” to quote from the Chronicle of 754. Once on European soil, they “ruined beautiful cities, burning them with fire; condemned lords and powerful men to the cross; and butchered youths and infants with the sword.” After meeting and beating Spain’s Visigothic nobles at...
  • A Second Major Migrant Caravan of 10K Could Head Toward the U.S. as Leaders Meet in Mexico

    AMexican activist leading a caravan of over 1,000 Central American migrants announced that his group expects to meet up with a caravan that's 10 times larger, Border Report writes. The two aim to converge and then proceed toward the U.S.-Mexico border. The organizer, Irineo Mujica, said that the caravans expect to meet in Veracruz on November 18. From there, they will head toward the Arizona-Mexico border. This deviates from the original plan to end this journey—which started near the border of Guatemala—in Mexico City. "We are not going to Mexico City, we are now going the northern border....

    Imagine if the U.S. were to open interior Alaska for colonization and, for whatever reason, thousands of Canadian settlers poured in, establishing their own towns, hockey rinks and Tim Hortons stores. When the U.S. insists they follow American laws and pay American taxes, they refuse. When the government tries to collect taxes, they shoot and kill American soldiers. When law enforcement goes after the killers, the colonists, backed by Canadian financing and mercenaries, take up arms in open revolt.

    I always liked the idea of Texas—a massive, arrogant, sun-scorched, red-blooded homeland for impenitent cattle rustlers who provided a cultural counterpoint to the sniffly, snobby classes of the Eastern seaboard. Back when America was all about expansion rather than retreat, Texas was far more American than anything you could scrape up from either coastline.

    American Thinker ^ | February 12, 2019 | Jonathon A Moseley
    Last week's most overlooked news was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealing herself as a champion of the "Reconquista" war against Europeans. The Mexican Reconquista movement is an openly admitted effort by Hispanic activists to take "back" California (Southern especially), New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas through immigration and activism. This is one of several driving forces behind allowing illegal immigration. Ocasio-Cortez (D-Venezuela) dominated news on February 7 appearing at a rally to abolish or defund the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. The same day, Ocasio-Cortez joined other liberal Members of Congress in unveiling her "Green New Deal" (green evidently referring to envy,...

    A key Latino leader, joining those who said teens were “harassing a Native American elder” is demanding that the Pledge of Allegiance be rewritten He made this proposal: The upgraded version should read: "I pledge allegiance and love to our indigenous and immigrant heritage, rooted in the United States of America, to our civil rights for which we strive, one voice, one nation, for equality and justice for all." Vargas said the pledge has a history of racism...“At worst, the pledge’s disturbing history excludes countless communities, including my own family. At best, reciting the pledge has become a perfunctory exercise...
  • US has become much less inclusive, report says. (Major hurl alert)

    If it feels like the US has become increasingly divided along race, gender, and other identity lines — it's because it has. A report released by the Haas Institute at the University of California-Berkeley last week found that the US has become less inclusive -- in other words, less welcoming to women, minority groups and people with disabilities -- compared to the rest of the world since 2016. . . . .Meanwhile, the five least inclusive states have all enacted anti-Sharia laws, an indicator that the Haas Institute used to predict discrimination against all religious minorities.

    A federal judge on Wednesday took the extraordinary step of ordering that asylum seekers who sued after their deportation be returned to the U.S. to have their claims heard anew, ruling against the Trump administration's revised asylum policies. The ruling from U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan in Washington came a day after the same judge presided over a contentious sentencing hearing for former national security adviser Michael Flynn -- in which he questioned whether the ex-White House official committed “treason” and accused him of selling out the United States to foreign interests. He later delayed Flynn’s sentencing until 2019, as...

    Two people burn a United States flag during a protest in favor of the caravan of migrants that is currently stuck on the Guatemala-Mexico border, in front of the American embassy, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Friday, Oct. 19, 2018. It appears they set multiple flags on fire, as this picture from the BBC shows a second flag set ablaze and treated like garbage: Buried in a News 8 broadcast from San Diego was footage of illegal migrants and their supporters on the U.S. side breaching the U.S. fence on the border, waving a big Honduran flag, victory-style, and whipping out a...
  • ‘Mayans MC’ Takes On ‘Racist Yahoos’ Shooting 'Wetbacks'

    Once again, FX’s Mayans MC isn’t shy about politics. After statements at the border, we now confront border-enforcing white nationalists. For a show the creator swears isn’t political, this series is becoming oddly political. The September 25 episode “Murciélago/Zotz” opens with a shooting near the Mexican border. Ordinarily, shootings aren’t anything new on this show. Neither is the fact that the victim carried drugs. What is unique about this episode is the shooter was actually a member of a white nationalist gang. How do we know this? The members have all the cliches including military fatigues, a Confederate flag, and...
  • Baby Boom or Bust? Media Gets it Wrong – Again

    According to recent media accounts, America is in a population death spiral. Open-borders activists have seized on the narrative to promote ever-looser immigration policies.But the narrative is wrong.In fact, women in the U.S. are more likely to be mothers than in the past, and they are having more children, reports the Pew Research Center.The Pew study found that women have 2.07 children during their lives on average – up from 1.86 in 2006, the lowest on record. Family size is also up. In 2016, mothers at the end of their childbearing years had had about 2.42 children, compared with 2.31...

    Mexico gets a massive cash influx in remittances, American corporations get cheap labor, Democrats get voters . . . Mexico in just a few days could elect one of its more anti-American figures in recent memory, Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Obrador has often advanced the idea that a strangely aggrieved Mexico has the right to monitor the status of its citizens living illegally in the United States. Lately, he trumped that notion of entitlement by assuring fellow Mexicans that they have a “human right” to enter the United States as they please. For Obrador, this is an innate privilege that...

    When police in Huntington Park shut down Pacific Boulevard in anticipation of the celebrations, fans moved one block over. CBS2 captured video as crowds shut down the intersection of Rita and Saturn avenues while a car did donuts. Rocks and eggs were thrown at patrol cars. One man was arrested on several charges. Dozens of people also hit the streets of Pacoima, celebrating at the intersection of Van Nuys and Laurel Canyon boulevards. A watch commander at the sheriff’s East L.A. station confirmed that extra units were deployed, but refused to go into further detail. There were no reported injuries. All...

    It's late, I'm exhausted, won't get back to this before 9AM, BUT .... Southwest Key Programs is the entity that holds the contract to "shelter" illegal immigrant kids. They have taken down their website today and replaced it with a generic info page. I looked up The Board of Directors, not easy but doable, and found that every one is connected to La Raza. What the effing hell. Does this make libs happy? Or not?

    With at least 11 million false-documented illegals in the United States – the real number is doubtless twice that – it’s clear that Mexican nationals feel entitled to defy U.S. immigration law. At the same time, the Pueblo Sin Fronteras crowd, denounces the United States as exploitive and slams the American founders as a pack of white supremacists. That calls for a look at José Vasconcelos (1882-1959), a major figure in Mexican history and influential to this day.  Vasconcelos served as rector of the National University of Mexico, and president Alvaro Obregon appointed him as minister of public education...

    Is it dangerous to speak Spanish in public in Trump's America? Well, sí! Just this month, we've seen a lawyer threaten to call ICE after he overheard people in a restaurant in Manhattan speak in Spanish, and a Border Patrol agent in Montana detain two Mexican-American women for 40 minutes because he heard the bilingual women chatting en español, because the language “is very unheard of up here,” according to la migra man.
