Happy New Year!

A very Happy New Year to all our readers! I hope 2007 finds you healthy and wealthy and wise. Failing that, I hope 2007 finds you not in prison!

One question for our gentle readers. On the illegal immigration front what is your new years wish? Please leave in comments if there's anything specific you'd like to see happen in the upcoming year.

Me? I have one...

I hope they march! I hope our opponents decide that they didn't piss off nearly enough patriotic Americans last year and put even more masses of illegals on our streets to extort citizenship and nebulous "rights."

Here's again wishing you and yours all the best. Thanks for reading this moron blog and most of all be safe tonight as you party. Remember, a hotel room is always cheaper than a burial plot.

Illegal immigrant sent to prison for attack on woman

WAILUKU -- When a man grabbed and dragged a woman as she walked on a Lahaina street, her "worst nightmare" came true, a deputy prosecutor said. "She can no longer walk on the streets, whether it's daytime or nighttime, without looking over her shoulder," said Deputy Prosecutor Robert Rivera. "Her entire life has changed because of the actions of a person who's illegal, who's intoxicated and who intended to cause her harm." On Wednesday, Jorge Alberto Lobos-Aquil was sentenced to a 10-year prison term for abducting the woman on June 25 while she was walking on Front Street. Lobos-Aquil, a 28-year-old native of Guatemala, had pleaded no contest to kidnapping and first-degree forgery for fake immigration documents he had when he was arrested. The prosecution dismissed a charge of attempted first-degree sexual assault in exchange for his pleas.

What Brokaw Didn't Report About Illegal Aliens

Source: aspentimes

Frosty Woolridge brings us this chilling list...
• Thousands of fraudulent loans and mortgages have been given to illegals. When they default on their payments, which happens in many cases, taxpayers pay.

• Last fall, a Fort Morgan child contracted tuberculosis from an illegal alien child who had not been screened at the border because his parents, also carrying TB, were not screened. The whole school student body had to be tested.

• Identity theft, forged Social Security and green cards have become an art form in Colorado. Honest citizens have become victims.

• Longmont Hospital suffered $24 million in nonpayments for illegals using it for anchor babies and medical treatment they didn’t pay for. Boulder Community Hospital suffered $32 million in losses. The costs to Swedish and other Denver hospitals soared into the millions. Who pays? We Colorado taxpayers pay the difference.

• In the fall of 2006, one illegal alien mother of three ran a stop sign in Greeley and killed her three unbelted kids.

• Another illegal alien, without driver’s license and living in Boulder, ran over and killed a 28-year-old man riding his bike as he stopped at a stop sign. She was drunk.

• One illegal named Hernandez placed a noose around his girlfriend’s neck and dragged her until she was grated cheese and no longer recognizable.

• One illegal alien shot another illegal alien at a job site.

• Denver Public High Schools suffer a 67 percent dropout/flunk out rate annually with 30,000 illegal aliens speaking 40 different languages while one in five teachers quits or transfers out every nine-month cycle.

• Eight illegals raped eight Boulder women, and seven escaped back to Mexico.

• My neighbor, Dale Englerth, in Lafayette, was killed by an illegal named Francisco Montero last fall. Montero had been caught drunk driving 11 times and let go until he killed Dale Englerth. Montero was immediately deported, didn’t serve time for vehicle homicide and is probably back in Colorado under another name.

• Greeley, the Swift meatpacking capital of illegal alien hiring in Colorado, suffered 270 hit-and-run accidents last year, illustrating a growing trend for lawlessness.

• Colorado is the smuggling epicenter for drugs and illegals.

I am reporting the tip of the iceberg as to what is happening to Colorado with 400,000 up to 500,000 illegal aliens. Brokaw, bless his out-of-touch-with-what-is-really-happening-to-us heart, didn’t begin to report on the deadly realities we face here in Colorado. He doesn’t live here. His grandkids don’t attend school here. He doesn’t have to wait in line behind thousands of illegals overwhelming our hospitals and schools. Brokaw, much like all elites, doesn’t have to step in the cow dung of illegal alien migration. He lives above and away from it.

In Colorado, we can’t escape it. Given enough time, no one single American will escape our accelerating consequences.
For what it's worth, we lived briefly in Longmont Colorado and saw first hand the seismic demographic changes occuring. No community can easily withstand that amount of change, especially from those who have no ties to, or interest in the community.

Invading armies don't always carry guns, on occasion sheer numbers will do.

Compare & Contrast...

"...But November's elections saw several outspoken "enforcement first" candidates lose, despite their tough rhetoric, from GOP Rep. J.D. Hayworth in Arizona to GOP Sen. Rick Santorum in Pennsylvania."
"...Many new House Democrats supported new border security restrictions on the campaign trail, which could complicate matters politically for Pelosi, even though lobbyists working on the issue believe a majority of the House would vote for reform."
So eeeeeeevil Republican candidates who supported enforcement first got thrown out on their ears while sober sensible Democrats who supported enforcement first got elected?

The Price of Traveling While American

Source: The Local (H/T Hot Air)

An American woman has been refused treatment by a doctor in Blekinge in southern Sweden because of her nationality. The woman's husband has now reported the incident to the Medical Responsibility Board.

Valery Johansson, who lives in a small town just outside Nashville, Tennessee, was in Sweden to celebrate Christmas with her husband's family.
Having come down with a sore throat on Christmas day, her family made her an appointment at a local doctor's office. She showed up, paid in advance, and the nurses did a throat swab. Then it was time to see the doctor...

But when the American woman, accompanied by her husband and niece, went to meet the doctor in his treatment room, he declined to examine her.

Rather than introduce himself, the doctor waved the patient's papers and shouted "she doesn't have strep throat, she doesn't have strep throat". He then added that he would not treat her.

"He said he didn't like Americans," said Johansson.

He also disliked hearing English spoken in his treatment room and soon walked out.

"We just couldn't believe it. We were left standing there with our mouths hanging open," said Johansson.

According to Johansson, the doctor was a Palestinian who objected to American foreign policy in the Middle East.
Fortunately, some clinic staff were normal, decent, professional human beings.

When Johansson returned to the clinic the following day she was met by a manager, who apologised and encouraged her to report the matter to the Medical Responsibility Board.

The nurses were also embarrassed by the doctor's behaviour and repaid the 820 kronor that Johansson had handed over in advance for her treatment. They too advised her to report the doctor.
Johansson has not only reported the incident to the Medical Responsibility Board, but also plans to inform the American Embassy.

Excuses -- Excuses -- Excuses

Source: dailynews
WASHINGTON - A hotly disputed fence on the U.S.-Mexico border will cost more than $60 billion - nearly 10 times more than original estimates - with billions more needed for land acquisition and maintenance, according to a new government study.

While officials have estimated that the 850-mile fence will cost $7 billion to erect, the report notes that maintenance could cost as much as $70 million per mile over its 25-year life span and that miles of private property in Texas still must be purchased.
Let me translate this from "Beltway speak" into average American English...


The only time the government cares how much something costs is when they don't want to do the will of the people.

Ex-Squeeze Me II

Source: freerepublic

We reported yesterday on this story, here's a little more just for fun...
JUPITER ISLAND, Florida -- At least 14 men who apparently traveled by open boat across the Caribbean ended their voyage this week at the wealthy enclave of Jupiter Island, just north of posh West Palm Beach, where some broke into a home to cook themselves a meal and get cleaned up, police said.

A first 911 call came at 9:21 p.m. Tuesday, when a resident reported seeing "a dozen Haitian men" walking in the area, said Lt. Janelle Atlas of the Martin County Sheriff's Office.

Next, homeowners called to say they returned home to find "eggs on the stove, the shower having recently been used and a wet grocery bag of clothes," Atlas said. Police believe some of the illegal migrants broke into the house but ran out the back door when the owner returned, she said.

As they searched for the men, police found a boat containing a handgun and a duffel bag of heroin -- and in the water next to the boat was a man's body, Atlas said.

Police identified the man as 58-year-old Jamaican resident Nigel Warren, she said, and the medical examiner's office has ruled the death a drowning.
Okay, first of all I think we can all agree that guns and bags of heroin are simply the cool thing to have these days, nothing to worry about. And as to breaking into the house and using it exactly as they use this country, all I can say is "so long as their comfortable."

That's the most important thing, I mean, if raping your daughter would help even one invader relax from "living in the (brightly lit, crime infested) shadows, well, it's well worth it, no?

And if sexually abusing your toddler son helps an illegal immigrant feel more at home here, how could you say no?

And if brutal murders and beheadings are how they "get their groove on" who are we to suggest they might be stone age savages? That would be wrong.

Because around here we won't stand for anything seriously bad like calling people rude names, even if their absolutely true.

A traditional end of year task for our president is handing out the presidential pardons. This year President Bush has been busy...
  • Charles James Allen of Winchester, Virginia, conspiracy to defraud the United States. A former federal employee, Allen was convicted in 1979 for approving payments to James Hilles Associates Inc., a Virginia firm, for office supplies that were never delivered. In return, Allen received car parts, a radio, a freezer and other gifts from the firm. He was sentenced to a year of custody to be served by 30 days in jail, 90 days in a work-release program, and the remaining period on parole.
  • William Sidney Baldwin Sr. of Green Pond, South Carolina, conspiracy to possess marijuana. Sentenced October 27, 1981, to six years' imprisonment.

  • Janet Theone Upton of Salinas, California, mail fraud. Sentenced May 23, 1975, to two years' unsupervised probation.
  • Bush also commuted the sentence of Phillip Anthony Emmert of Washington, Iowa, whose case involved conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
In reading through this list of largesse I can't help but feeling somethings missing. Someone's been overlooked. Hmmm, who could it be?

Border Patrol agents Ramos and Compean have been completely ignored by this administration, in fact, I think the president approves of the ridiculous sentence handed down in their case. Why? Well, seeing as the president has made it abundantly clear that he would rather die than protect our nation in any meaningful way, let's just say that persecutions such as these serve his purposes.

I wanted to remind everyone that agents Ramos and Compean aren't looking for pardons, as Rich Pierce, VP of the National Border Patrol Council said...""We'll take a pardon if that's the best we can get," Mr. Pierce said, but "If all they get is a pardon their still guilty and they will not be eligible to get their jobs back, we need a reversal."

Americans Talk Back

Source: The Daily Nightly

On a recent Tom Brokaw program he took a look at illegal immigration. We don't have a TV so we didn't watch the show, but the reactions to this program have been intense. Alert reader Zorro tipped us to these comments under the blog that accompanied the original MSNBC story...

Hey, I stood in line to get a $15 an hour job that I was assured would be mine. Two weeks later, I found out that 2 illegals were hired to do the job one experienced person can do, but for only 7 bucks an hour. Now, you tell me how is that fair when I was never given an option as to whether I wanted that job at a reduced salary. I'm 44 years old and I am suffering soon to out on my a**. I am willing to work but refused to accepted a job making less than minimum wage like 4.75 per hour. I was will to accept 9 dollars an hour.

Americans will do the jobs illegals do.

Thank goodness I live in an area illegals have not invaded, yet.

People here wait in line to get jobs paying $9 per hr

or more and are happy to get it.

Our students drive to the cities to work for $6 per hr, and are happy to find a job.

Some of these jobs are hard work, but believe it or not, poor Americans have to earn a living also.

I am sooo sick and tired of being sick and tired, when it comes to Illegal immigration. My husband, who is a Legal Hispanic immigrant, played by all the rules! He worked numerous jobs, that you state Americans don't want to do. How were we rewarded for playing by the rules?! Two years ago, when we were ready to finally purchase a home, we instead got a suprise! We discovered that over 30 Illegal Aliens had stolen his Soc. Sec. #!! It turned into a nightmare! Needless to say, we didn't get our house!!

Mr Brokaw are you paying attention to these comments of the American people? You know the kids and grandchildren of "America's Greatest Generation"?

Why weren't you acting like the responsible journalist by showing all aspects of the story and not just glorifying the illegal alien invasion. Does the term "yellow journalism" come to mind? Your portrayal of illegal aliens in an attempt to gain public sympathy for them only encourages illegal aliens to violate our immigration laws, steal our identities and murder, rape and molest innocent Americans of which you open borders and illegal immigration advocates conveniently ignore.

What has become of true news journalism? This Living in the Shadows piece was pure propaganda. Companies hiring illegal aliens have LOWERED the wage base for that occupation and it is NOT just picking lettuce or digging ditches. It is jobs in construction and jobs in plants that used to be a decent job for Americans. Now Americans don't want those jobs because they don't pay enough to live on unless you live 17 people to a house. Illegal aliens are bringing DOWN our standard of living. I just don't understand how they can continue to move about freely, and even be on TV without being deported? Why is our government asleep at the wheel? They have allowed this country to be destroyed by invaders from other countries "who just want to work". Everyone I talk to thinks it's a problem. This situation is NOT reversible. Americans want ALL illegal aliens OUT of our country and the main stream media continues to ignore the true opinion of the majority of Americans as does our government.

Ouch! That'll leave a mark. Read all the

Do you think they'll follow up on these comments? Nah, me neither! I also note, I did not see one favorable comment to the story or illegals in all the comments i read. This is the result every single time when this issue is put before the American people, every single time.

Illegal immigrant charged with leaving the scene of fatal accident

Tampa, Florida - Police say the driver charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident on the Courtney Campbell Causeway Thursday night is from Mexico and in this country illegally. Four-and-a-half-year-old Joshua Morrow and his 42-year-old uncle Ronald Bishop were killed in the westbound lanes of the causeway at Bay Harbor Drive. A witness followed the suspect's gold-colored SUV and gave police the tag number. Clearwater police arrested 26-year-old Armando Lopez-Canada a short time later.
Yay for illegals! Yay! It's about time somebody started "thinning" out the Americans, there's just too many. And, everybody "Knows" brown people are better anyway, just ask Jordek.

Dunkin' Donuts owner pleads guilty to recruiting illegal aliens

Jose Calhelha and his 23-year old daughter Diana walked into New Haven Federal Court and pleaded guilty to charges resulting from our Team 8 investigation. The charges may land Jose Calhelha in federal prison for more than a year when he's sentenced. "We're looking ... to convince this judge to give the most lenient sentence possible," defense attorney William Dow said. In May 2005, News Channel 8 reported Calhelha was recruiting workers in Portugal with an advertisement and bringing them to Connecticut to work at his ten Dunkin' Donuts stores. "I work 7 days a week maybe 85-hours a week. No day off," one worker told News Channel 8 at that time. The News Channel 8 investigation resulted in a federal indictment.

'Illegal Immigration: the U.S., Third-World Wasteland?'

Source: newsbyus

William Calhoun has a good piece up looking at the third world invasion of America and it's consequences. Note in particular his proscriptions at the end...
Rep. Tom Tancredo recently attracted the ire of the left-wing media when he made the rather pedestrian observation that Miami “has become a third-world country.” This should not be news. Everyone I know who has been to Miami (or southern California or Arizona, for that matter) has noticed the same: the US is being transformed into a third-world cesspool.

This should be no surprise. A recent former military intelligence analyst told me, “There currently exists a third-world invasion of America. And it is bad. Very bad. If things are not stopped soon, all will be lost. America will become a third-world sewer.”

Many of the earmarks of a third world country (poverty, disease, ethnic strife, quixotic defense of a “propositional nation,” big business driving down wages with cheap labor, gangs, abundant treason, etc.) are currently widespread in the U.S.

There exists a very dangerous new alliance in America: left-wing multiculturalism and big business. Although big business may have sided with conservatives during the Cold War, it now aligns itself with the radical left, and gives most of its money to far Left causes.

Only look at Wal-Mart. Recently Wal-Mart has started giving enormous sums of money to radical pro-homosexual groups, and last year Wal-Mart gave more money to La Raza than to any other organization. What is La Raza? It is the mestizo pro-immigration group that has called for the complete elimination of the white race.

Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez, founder of La Raza, has proudly said: “We have an aging white America…. They are dying…. They are ******** in their pants with fear! I love it!” He then demands: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.”

Kill all the whites, eh? This should be no surprise. Why do Hispanics so hate Western Civilization? Just look at Mexico. With the exception of a very small upper class of European descent, most Mexicans are either Amerindian or mestizo (mostly Amerindian with a few drops of Spaniard or African blood). In short, most Hispanics are genealogically Asian, they are not Western, and they despise the West.

And so the third-world conversion of America continues. A friend of mine in southern California recently watched her once predominantly white neighborhood become 85% mestizo. Crime has increased 700%, HIV 800%, and the school board recently removed all “white authors” from the reading list. Yes, they have actively been removing all white authors from the schools, and it is also commonplace for mestizos to demand the removal of all “European elements” from their liturgy.

Many Hispanics, furthermore, identify with terrorists. We know for certain that mestizos are helping terrorists sneak across the Rio Grande. They have made alliances with terrorist cells in India and Bangladesh. At a soccer game in Mexico recently, the crowd erupted in applause when a picture of Bin Laden was shown on the screen. Furthermore, as recently reported by the Christian Science Monitor, at least 200,000 Hispanics in the United States have recently converted to Islam, and this number is expected to increase exponentially.

When Lying Liars, Well, Lie!

Source: summitdaily

There appears to be a pattern forming with this, watch closely...
GLENWOOD SPRINGS - An NBC television report on the national debate over illegal immigration aired the day after Christmas is having repercussions in the Roaring Fork Valley. The documentary team headed up by former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw focused on Glenwood Springs contractor Mark Gould and his struggle to fill laborer jobs that he says only Latinos will take.

Gould spoke about his frustration at not being able to hire Americans to do the hand labor required to lay sewer pipe and sidewalks. He said young American men coming out of high school now don't want to start out as ditch diggers for $14 an hour, the current starting wage at Gould Construction.

Without immigrant workers willing to take those jobs - illegal or not - his business would be in deep trouble, he said.
Are you following the narrative thus far? No illegals, anti-American dirt bag alleges he will be out of business, right?

But wait, what's this?
Wednesday Brett Gould's phone was ringing off the hook at the Gould Construction office south of Glenwood Springs. Gould is the director of human resources at Gould Construction.

"By the end of the show I had e-mails, applications for jobs," said Mark Gould from Dallas airport Wednesday afternoon. He was returning from a family vacation over the Christmas holiday.
Gosh, that's just like the Swift plants, you recall, the one where the line was out the door with American citizens hoping to get those jobs, you remember right?

He continues, caution, bone headed alogical statements to follow...
"The hate mail bothered me the most. People want to put their head in the sand about this issue."

During the show, Brett Gould was filmed taking applications from several Latino men and checking their immigration documents. He said the company does everything it can to stay within the law when it comes to hiring.

"We try to not knowingly hire illegal workers," he said in the show.
And yet he does hire illegals...
Also interviewed for the documentary was an Latino worker hired by Gould named Trino. He admitted he was in this country illegally and used a false Social Security number to get the job.

Wednesday Brett Gould terminated Trino and his brother Juan Carlos who had also been hired by the company.

"We had to," he said. "I did not know he was illegal until last night (when the show aired)."
Uh-huh, could be true, could be Mr. Gould is a lying sack of...(potential clue to illegal alien status bolded for your reading pleasure)
Brett Gould said he felt badly about letting them go. "They're darn good workers. They learned fast. They learned English."
Now listen closely as Mr. (anti-American asshat) Gould explains his feelings about the democratic process...
"Everyone we've hired since then is legal," he said. But he said he's lost 10 percent of his workforce. He has no praise for the new law.

"The state legislature reacted to many people's opinion. They don't understand the real problem."
Correct me if I'm mistaken but, isn't "reacting to many people's opinions" nominally a good thing in a democracy?

And I'm a little confused here, didn't the article previously state that Mr. (illegal fellating) Gould was receiving applications and job requests?

He finishes...
Watching the TV show was not comfortable for Mark Gould, but he acknowledged that it's an issue that needs to be discussed more.

"It was hard to watch last night. I didn't feel all warm and fuzzy inside. There's something wrong with the world and we need to fix it. We can't fix it unless we talk about it."
You know he doesn't want to discuss this, he wants to ignore it and he hopes like hell we'll all fall asleep and just forget that he hires illegal aliens. It's this simple, the reason the MSM hates talking about illegal immigration is that they know every time they even mention it it reminds people of our governments preference for non-citizens and their abject failure to even pretend to control our borders.

So by all means let's talk about it Mr. Gould, cuz if we do you lose. That simple.

Yes Mr. Gould there is "something wrong with the world." I would define it as jackass business owners who put their profit margins above the good of their country and their fellow citizens. But that's just me, a chef who's watched his business eaten alive by illegal immigrants and fellow Americans losing jobs to those who aren't even supposed to be here.

I'm sure Mr. (Traitor, son of a bitch) Gould is much smarter than me, after all, he hires illegal aliens, he must be a genius!

More On How Silly It Is To Worry About Terrorism At Our Southern Border

Source: dailybulletin

Sara Carter has made the Southern border her beat and frankly she is doing the best reporting in any major media on this topic. Of course, it would help if she had some competition, n'est ce pas?

She delivers another powerful piece that starts off with a bit of a mystery...
COLUMBUS, N.M. - On Sept. 5, a man calling himself Miguel Alfonso Salinas was apprehended off a deserted highway near the U.S.-Mexico border.

The tinted windows on Alfonso Salinas' vehicle aroused the suspicion of Border Patrol agents patrolling a dark and desolate stretch of Highway 9, which runs parallel to the border and is the site of large numbers of illegal crossings.

The agents discovered three Mexican migrants in the vehicle with Alfonso Salinas.

But what they discovered several days later made a far greater impression.

Man twice deported arrested in scheme to smuggle drugs
BELVIDERE -- A man who has been deported twice to Mexico is being held without bond in Boone County Jail in connection with a scheme to smuggle drugs across the U.S. border. Horacio Ramirez, 37, was arrested Wednesday in Elgin after a 10-month joint investigation by police in Belvidere and Elgin and the Rockford Drug Enforcement Administration. Ramirez was charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, criminal drug conspiracy and attempted obstructing of justice. The first two are Class X felonies, which are punishable by 15 to 30 years in prison for each count. Ramirez, who is known as Jose Horacio Ramirez-Sanches by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was returned to Mexico in 1989 after being convicted of possession of marijuana with intent to sell.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today welcomed an announcement by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) that it has provided special training about Islamic traditions related to the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca, to some 45,000 airport security officers. The TSA cultural sensitivity training includes details about the timing of Hajj travel, about items pilgrims may be carrying and about Islamic
prayers that may be observed by security personnel....

Earlier this month, CAIR advised those going on Hajj to be aware of their civil and legal rights as airline passengers. CAIR's "Your Rights and Responsibilities as an American Muslim" pocket guide states: "As an airline passenger, you are entitled to courteous, respectful and non-stigmatizing treatment by airline and security personnel. You have the right to complain about treatment that you believe is discriminatory."

"We welcome the fact that airport security officers nationwide will now be better informed about Islamic traditions relating to Hajj," said CAIR Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. "This proactive effort on the part of the Transportation Security Administration demonstrates that there is no contradiction between the need to maintain airline safety and security and the duty to protect the religious and civil rights of airline passengers."

Hooper said representatives of CAIR chapters nationwide have met with TSA, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials on issues related to cultural sensitivity and national security.
Andy McCarthy reports that the State Department confirms this pitiful reality here.

Mr. McCarthy (who is by far my favorite writer at NRO) sez..."Great. A bunch of imams transparently set out to provoke an incident and incite understandable fears of passengers and crew stuck in the already anxiety-ridden nightmare that is post-9/11 American air travel, and the administration's responsive message is ... there must be something lacking in the sensitivity of our security officials. "

I can never remember, how do I point this prayer rug dealie at Mecca again?

The Correct Way To Handle Violent Illegal Aliens

Man Dies in Shootout With Calif. Cops

Man? Just to show how lowdown and full of crap our TMM (three monkey media) are, would you refer to a career criminal suspected of shooting cops as a "man?" Yeah, in the bizarroworld of the TMM this makes sense. When they use the term "Man," more often than not it means "illegal alien man but we don't want to tell you that until the second to last paragraph so you might not notice and you can waltz away singing songs and doing dances about how wonderful and minty fresh our invader class is."
LONG BEACH, CALIF. — A man suspected of shooting two police officers during a traffic stop was killed in a wild shootout with police in a strip mall parking lot, authorities said Thursday.

More than 50 shots were fired between Santa Ana police officers and 33-year-old Oscar Gabriel Gallegos on Wednesday, Santa Ana Police Chief Paul Walters said.

Gallegos was a suspect in the Dec. 22 shootings of two Long Beach officers during a traffic stop.

Santa Ana officers went to confront a man believed to be Gallegos, Long Beach Officer Jason Evans said. "As soon as he sees the car with the officers, he starts shooting," Walters said.

The officers got out of their car, took cover and returned fire, police said. Three officers shot at Gallegos, who was hit several times.

Gallegos continued to fire on officers even after he was shot, Walters said. He died of his wounds in the parking lot, police said.

Gallegos was an illegal immigrant who had been deported three times and had a criminal record dating back to 1990, including arrests for drug offenses and assault with a deadly weapon, authorities said.

Officers Abe Yap, 35, and Roy Wade, 39, were shot in their squad car after stopping a car for running a red light. Both are hospitalized in critical but stable condition, Long Beach Police Chief Anthony Batts said.
Well done officers, god willing this "horrible fate" (snicker) will await any jackass who feels he has a god given right to enter this country for the sole purpose of committing crime. I can almost sense the puling in the cheap seats, what? You think I'm unchristian? Uncharitable? Perhaps you should read your bible my leetle fren'. I save my charity for human beings, not cop killing sacks of crap who require terminal ventilation.

As "Cop The Truth" sez..."But here's why I mention this incident: the shooter of the LBPD Officers was Oscar Gabriel Gallegos, 33, an illegal immigrant who had been deported from this country three times and had a criminal history of violence, drug abuse and gang activity dating back some sixteen years!

This is an example of what happens when the U.S. Government refuses to take responsibility for securing our borders and permanently deporting those who are here illegally. A violent felon who repeatedly re-entered the U.S. illegally after being deported, nearly murdered two police officers, and shot at three more before being killed.

My only correction would be to say 'government at all levels' bear the blame. Yes the feds have ultimate responsibility, but so do the communities. Let's try a little thought experiment, shall we?

Your neighbor Suzie asks you to watch her little boy Jeremy for the afternoon, Jeremy is an average child, not a terror but capable of mischief. Suzie Federale is known as the neighborhood whore who drinks way too much and can never make up her mind. You agree and she drops him off before rushing off to meet her Bolivian lover Rudolpho at a sleazy motel in the meatpacking district.

Jeremy is a treat as you spend the afternoon together, you scare up some of your children's old toys and coloring books and laugh and sing the afternoon away. After a couple of hours he begins to grow a little cranky so you suggest he take a nap. He agrees yawning hugely with a cute gap showing between his teeth.

As you carry him up to an unused bedroom upstairs he says he needs to make a 'peepee.' So you quickly veer toward the washroom and deposit him inside, he looks up bashfully and says that he cannot perform with anyone else in the room.

Dutifully you close the door and begin to wait. From inside the washroom you can hear odd sounds, splashing, singing, and some sort of rubbing sound. Finally the door opens and Jeremy emerges covered in shit. The walls of the bathroom are smeared with shit. He has finger painted shit onto every surface imaginable in that small space including himself*.

You clean him up as best you can but don't clean any part of the bathroom.

Upon the mothers return you drag her upstairs to see her sons handiwork. She is mortified of course, you demand she clean it up, she refuses and storms out of the house little Jeremy in tow.

So you wall off the bathroom and never use it again, right?

Local communities are using logic just this specious to void their own responsibilities in this matter. Yes, the Fed is the big Kahuna in immigration matters, however, in our system of governance we have the right to fill the gap when they aren't living up to their responsibilities.

If the Fed won't seal the border then maybe it's time to cut the PC crap and start removing this scum from the streets in any way necesary. Or are we required to die to live up to your little PC, multi-cultural ideals?

Anywho, nice job dropping this sorry sack of crap guys, a boy can only hope this is the fate that awaits those that choose to enter this country illegally and behave in this fashion.

*The "finger painting with shit" incident actually happened at a restaurant I worked at in the eighties. Oddly, we didn't wall off the bathroom, and the next day it was back in service, though it did reek of bleach. I have one other really good story that revolves around fecal matter, but I don't know if I like you enough to share it with you!

Remember The Troops In Your Prayers!

Source: thedonovan

Milblogger Lumberjack in a Desert was injured by an IED. Please remember him and all our brave men and women who lay their lives on the line for us each and every day.

One thought, no matter what your opinion of the war that should have nothing whatsoever to do with your opinion of our gallant men and women serving abroad. These folks are honoring their oaths in the most noble way possible. Please always remember that they are instruments of foreign policy, they don't make the policy. So even if you hate the war, and I'll tell you right now I have big questions on that subject, your beef is not with the troops.

That is all, carry on.

From The Archives

In this I'm describing an experience I had working on the Mexican border...
My wife and I had the privilege of working on a guest ranch right on the border in the little Arizona town of Sasabee. Though I was the chef and my wife was my Sous chef, in the early mornings we’d have to help the wranglers gather the horses for the days riding.

Imagine if you will. The sun is just peeking over the horizon, the landscape bristles with alien looking cactus and scrubby grasses, wild colors and shapes misted with dew. The soft knickering of horses breaks the deep silence and the sky looks like an impressionist painting, faint hues of purple and pink wafting as far as the eye can see.

You left the compound through a ocotillo fence with the feeling of time peeling back depositing you in the old west. The ochre sand crunched underfoot as you followed the horse tracks through undulating washes and over hills.

Crossing the hill my mind was filled with the beauty of the place until topping the rise I was confronted by several tons of trash. Syringes, discarded clothes, food containers, cans, backpacks, toilet paper and the reek of urine and excrement.

Did it hurt me? No. Did it hurt my spirit? You bet.

Those open spaces are a treasure we share in common and can’t be replaced. And some things can’t be measured in terms of dollars and cents or practicality.

Quote Of The Day

"We were so deluded with our multiculturalism that we did not realize the risk of losing the very culture we prided ourselves on having. We did not realize that the intolerant Islamic side of our culture was gaining strength on the back of our West openness and pride in diversity. With our open-border policy, we unwittingly allowed what would turn out to be our enemy to infiltrate our society to plot and fight with radicals within to gain control of our government."

When Liberals Talk II

The hard left often seems puzzled as to why a majority of Americans see them as supercilious smug bastards. This comment was found in a hot steaming pile under this post...
Well it makes perfect sense. Your target audience is redneck hicks. Where are you going to find them? A gun show.
Coupla things, I was taking the author of that piece to task for simply assuming those who attend gun shows are racist bastards. This individual takes that a step further, let me reiterate for those who've yet to enjoy a caffeinated beverage yet today.

This individual feels that when Americans pursue their constitutional rights they are then by definition "redneck hicks." So, when this individual slathers their scrawny tofu eating self with patchouli oil and exercises their first amendment right by protesting that "MCCHIMPY HALLIBURTON BUSHITLER EATS CAT TURDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" One can only assume that they are then, by definition a "redneck hick." Right?

Oh, and the undaunted courage of commenting "anonymously?" Bravo brave soul, we are in awe of you and your tofu munching ways. I think I'll give the last word to Mr. Poopie...

Operation Predator evolved out of ICE's mission to find and deport illegal aliens with the more heinous criminal records. The majority of the arrests under Operation Predator - roughly 85% - involved foreign nationals in this country whose child sex crimes made them targets to be removed from the United States. By matching immigration databases with state Megan's law directories, ICE agents have arrested more than 1,800 registered sex offenders.

Operation Predator began on July 9, 2003, and resulted in 6,085 child predator arrests throughout the country - an average of roughly 250 arrests per month and eight arrests per day. While arrests have been made in every state, the most have occurred in these states: Arizona (207), California (1,578), Florida (255), Illinois (282), Michigan (153), Minnesota (190), New Jersey (423), New York (367), Oregon (148) and Texas (545). However, while Operation Predator is a noble effort, it is making only a small dent in the criminal activity of illegal aliens.
Please read the whole thing and then vote for Tom Tancredo for president.

How Very Nice!

A Toledo charter school illegally used public funds to help five people with the cost of their immigration and citizenship applications, including the child of a teacher and four nonemployees, according to a state audit. Horizon Science Academy of Toledo, 425 Jefferson Ave., spent $4,560 during the 2004-2005 school year on the applications and associated legal fees with the Dayton law firm of Skelton McQuiston Gounaris Henry to help the five, the audit found. Ohio Auditor Betty Montgomery's office ordered the five individuals involved and officials at the nonprofit academy for students in grades 9-12 to repay the money.

Farmers Branch Tenants Leaving Their Apartments

FARMERS BRANCH Apartment managers in Farmers Branch say that they are already seeing the effects of the ordinance that will prohibit them from renting to illegal immigrants. Tenants, they say, are moving out, being wooed away by other cities in many cases. Even apartment complex owners are not sure their businesses have a future. "I probably figure a year and a half, and we'll bulldoze it," said Andrew Mongeons on London Villa and Villa Creek Apartments. The city's rental law is not even in effect, yet it weighs heavily on him. "I've already lost probably 10 percent, I guess," he said. "Whatever I lost from this point on, I'll never replace."
Oh! So sympathetic this poor, poor landlord. I think I might cry, except...every nickel he ever made off illegal immigrants was earned by catering to law breakers. He was never entitled to penny one, and his willingness to continue to sell out his country, for money?

Please pardon my French but...FU!

Bills in General Assembly would target illegal immigrants

Although illegal immigration isn't expected to be a front-burner issue during the upcoming General Assembly sessions, several legislators will be pushing significant changes in the law.

"Illegal immigrants are soaking away resources from legal citizens and legal residents," said Del. Jeff Frederick, R-Prince William County. "The more people abuse the laws, the tougher the laws get."

Some delegates are drafting or have already introduced bills related to how the state responds to the increase in those who are here unlawfully.

They include punishing employees who hire illegal immigrants and creating a group to assess exactly how immigration is affecting the state.

Classin' The Joint Up!

Incoming Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will miss the state funeral for former President Gerald Ford at the Capitol Rotunda on Saturday night, opting instead to lead a delegation to South America with an expected stop at the Machu Picchu Inca ruins.

Reid, D-Nev., left Wednesday afternoon from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland with a bipartisan group of five other senators, including Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the incoming assistant majority leader, for what has been described as a weeklong visit to Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru.

The highlight of the trip is said to be separate meetings with the presidents of the three nations, with the last one scheduled in Peru on Tuesday morning.

"They would be difficult to cancel," Reid spokesman Jim Manley said via mobile phone as the congressional delegation took off in a U.S. military plane.

Assimilation Is An Unpleasant Requirement

Easily my favorite Liberal blog has to be "The Gun Totin' Liberal." As he likes to say "We may not see eye to eye but we agree on the big stuff." (at least I think he said that)

Anywho, one of the many talented writers over there has a fantastic piece on the costs and necessity of assimilating into a country when you move there.

It's a must read!

And as an extra special Freedom Folks bonus! (not really!) One of his readers is running for president. I have been ruminating lately on how the tubes of the internets will be changing things in the future, this is a fascinating example.

Could there be a day in the future when all you need to run for president is a computer and a broadband connection? Campaign videos on Youtube?

I don't think we've scratched the surface yet on harnessing or leveraging the power of the internet. I've always been fond of the toast "may you live interesting times." I think we lucked out.

Militia no immigration cure

The Georgia organizer talks about how nonviolent Minutemen are, how they must submit to background checks and how they would be automatically kicked out if they ever drew their weapons.

On the other hand, when real estate investor Todd Walker set about organizing the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps of Georgia, he and his wife started with a booth at the Eastman Gun Show in Gainesville, where they recruited 13 of the 25 members they needed to start a state chapter of the MCDC. The choice of venue is suggestive.
Yes Mr. Liberal Ninny Pants Editor, it is. Let's take a closer look at what we're actually talking about here...

Legal American citizens availing themselves of a constitutional right in a perfectly legal fashion. You know what? When I frame the issue that way even I'm scared! NOT!

I can tell you why the Minutemen recruit at gun shows, you wanna know why? It's not a deep dark secret...BECAUSE PEOPLE THAT GO TO GUN SHOWS ARE OFTEN PATRIOTIC AMERICANS!!

Fingers Crossed!

Chicago church housing illegal immigrant mom fears raid imminent

CHICAGO - Members of a storefront church said Wednesday they fear U.S. authorities plan to raid their building and arrest an illegal immigrant who has taken refuge there. Adalberto United Methodist Church has sheltered Elvira Arellano and her 8-year-old son, Saul, since August. Arellano sought sanctuary at the West Side church after she was ordered deported, saying she didn't want to be separated from her son, a U.S. citizen. The Rev. Walter Coleman said neighborhood residents reported seeing U.S. marshals taking photos of the church Tuesday night. But Mark Gregoline, deputy U.S. marshal for northern Illinois, said Wednesday that his agency is not involved in the case. Phone and e-mail messages left after hours Wednesday for an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman were not immediately returned. Officials at the agency have said there is nothing to prevent them from arresting Arellano.
Yes Virginia, there really IS a Santa Claus! (or will this be a lump of coal?)

PS-If anybody hears anything breaking on this shoot me an email soonest. We live about six minutes from there and I will fly like the wind to get that sweet footage of Mrs. Perfidy being dragged from the church.

A Reconquista Threat Reminder

Latinos Threaten to Take to the Streets

Washington, Nov 14 (Prensa Latina) Tuesday US Latino organizations threatened to carry out mass demonstrations on the streets of the United States if Congress refuses to take actions favoring immigrants.

Central American Resources Center executive director Raul Solorzano urged for an all-embracing migratory reform to authenticate 11.2 million people with no identity papers.

We ll wait 110 days [for the new Democratic Congress], if in that time the legislative body does not act, "we will," he warned. *snip*

USA Latino Movement director Juan Jose Gutierrez expressed his opposition to Congress and White House propaganda for their interests to the detriment of immigrants.

Texas town makes Spanish official, stirs war of words
By Lynda Gorov, Globe Staff, 08/28/99

‘’I understand it is the United States, but what happens if people want to know what is going on?'’ said Mayor Rafael Rodriguez, elected in November along with the two city commissioners. ‘’I don’t want to create problems with the federal government, because we have enough problems. But this is right for our community. It will give people more confidence and help them communicate if they can do it in Spanish.'’

Even before this month’s vote, Spanish was the language of El Cenizo, a smattering of ramshackle houses and dusty roads about 15 miles downriver from Laredo. Many of its 7,800 residents speak little or no English, among them the mayor, who concedes he crossed the border illegally 20 years ago and has since become a naturalized citizen. Children often translate for parents, and locals who are bilingual tend to prefer Spanish among themselves.

To them, the new policy makes perfect sense, as does another designating El Cenizo a ‘’safe haven'’ for undocumented immigrants who make their way to the town.
Um, heh?

The Kanamara Matsuri (Festival of the Steel Phallus) is an annual Shinto fertility festival held in Kawasaki , Japan in spring. The exact dates vary, but the main festivities fall on a Sunday. The penis forms the central theme of the event that’s reflected everywhere; in illustrations, candy, carved vegetables, decoration, a parade of mikoshis, etc.

Japanese Festival of Steel PhallusThe Kanamara Matsuri is centered around a local penis-venerating shrine, once popular among prostitutes who wished to pray for protection against sexually transmitted diseases. Today, the festival is used to raise money for HIV research.

Created back in Japan’s Edo period (1603-1867) to pray for sexual safety (especially against syphilis) among Kawasaki’s prostitutes, this Shinto gathering now helps raise money for HIV/AIDS research. But the festival attracts more than just those interested in fighting STDs; it also draws Japanese couples looking for good fertility luck, a large gay/lesbian crowd, lots of proud locals, and scores of interested foreigners who come to gawk at the gigantic portable plaster phallus shrine and buy souvenir John Thomas lollypops and charms.
