Kipling’s Classic Poem, “The Young British Soldier”

 

 

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix
From The Kipling Society

Among the blessings of the English language, the works of Rudyard Kipling are exceeded in beauty by those of only one individual author, Edward de Vere, alias William Shakespeare. (The King James Bible was a collective effort.)

A line from one of the poems in the collection Barrack Room Ballads and Other Verses, whence this ditty comes, became the title of the greatest novel to come out of World War II, "from here to eternity."

The Young British
Soldier

By Rudyard Kipling
___________________________________


WHEN the 'arf-made recruity goes out to the East
'E acts like a babe an' 'e drinks like a beast,
An' 'e wonders because 'e is frequent deceased
Ere 'e's fit for to serve as a soldier.
Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
So-oldier of the Queen!

Now all you recruities what's drafted to-day,
You shut up your rag-box an' 'ark to my lay,
An' I'll sing you a soldier as far as I may:
A soldier what's fit for a soldier.
Fit, fit, fit for a soldier . . .

First mind you steer clear o' the grog-sellers' huts,
For they sell you Fixed Bay'nets that rots out your guts -
Ay, drink that 'ud eat the live steel from your butts -
An' it's bad for the young British soldier.
Bad, bad, bad for the soldier . . .

When the cholera comes - as it will past a doubt -
Keep out of the wet and don't go on the shout,
For the sickness gets in as the liquor dies out,
An' it crumples the young British soldier.
Crum-, crum-, crumples the soldier . . .

But the worst o' your foes is the sun over'ead:
You must wear your 'elmet for all that is said:
If 'e finds you uncovered 'e'll knock you down dead,
An' you'll die like a fool of a soldier.
Fool, fool, fool of a soldier . . .

If you're cast for fatigue by a sergeant unkind,
Don't grouse like a woman nor crack on nor blind;
Be handy and civil, and then you will find
That it's beer for the young British soldier.
Beer, beer, beer for the soldier . . .

Now, if you must marry, take care she is old -
A troop-sergeant's widow's the nicest I'm told,
For beauty won't help if your rations is cold,
Nor love ain't enough for a soldier.
'Nough, 'nough, 'nough for a soldier . . .

If the wife should go wrong with a comrade, be loath
To shoot when you catch 'em - you'll swing, on my oath! -
Make 'im take 'er and keep 'er: that's Hell for them both,
An' you're shut o' the curse of a soldier.
Curse, curse, curse of a soldier . . .

When first under fire an' you're wishful to duck,
Don't look nor take 'eed at the man that is struck,
Be thankful you're livin', and trust to your luck
And march to your front like a soldier.
Front, front, front like a soldier . . .

When 'arf of your bullets fly wide in the ditch,
Don't call your Martini a cross-eyed old bitch;
She's human as you are - you treat her as sich,
An' she'll fight for the young British soldier.
Fight, fight, fight for the soldier . . .

When shakin' their bustles like ladies so fine,
The guns o' the enemy wheel into line,
Shoot low at the limbers an' don't mind the shine,
For noise never startles the soldier.
Start-, start-, startles the soldier . . .

If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white,
Remember it's ruin to run from a fight:
So take open order, lie down, and sit tight,
And wait for supports like a soldier.
Wait, wait, wait like a soldier . . .

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
So-oldier of the Queen!




The Young British Soldier



1890

[October 12th 2017]



Publication


First published in the Scots Observer on June 28th 1890. The poem is listed in ORG as No. 465.


It is collected in:

  • Barrack Room Ballads and Other Verses (1892)
  • Inclusive Verse (1919)
  • Definitive Verse (1940)
  • The Sussex Edition vol xxxii (1939)
  • The Burwash Edition vol xxv (1941)
  • Cambridge Edition (2013) Ed. Thomas Pinney, p. 204.


The poem


This is one of the first group of Barrack Room Ballads, published after Kipling had returned to England in 1889. [What about 1890?] It is sung or recited by an experienced soldier giving good advice to young half-trained men who have just arrived in India and are misbehaving in a foolish and dangerous manner.


[The points of the foregoing paragraph were obvious in the poem, and thus unnecessary, ditto for the next one, except for the last clause.]

Watch what you drink, take care when the cholera is about, keep your sun-helmet on, work willingly, if you must marry, marry a sensible older woman, look after your rifle, sit tight if your officer is killed, and if you are wounded and left on the battlefield, shoot yourself before the enemy's womenfolk can come out and carve you up; wisdom that the young Kipling must have heard when chatting to privates and NCOs of the British regiments stationed in Lahore.


See "Kipling and the British Army in India" by Charles Carrington. In his biography of Kipling Carrington writes (p. 212):
No author in any literature has composed in verse or prose, so full and varied amd [sic] so relentlessly realistic a view of the soldier's life, with its alterations of boredom and terror, its deadening routine, its characteristic vices and corruption, its rare glories and its irrational fascination...

An Orgy of Racist Hatred on MLK Day!

 

“Protesters attend Martin Luther King Day "Rally Against Racism" in Times Square to protest President Trump on MLK Day on Monday.” Translation: It was a rally against white people.
 

By Nicholas Stix

As I walked my chief of research down the street to the city bus stop, on his way to school this morning, I caught part of the front page of the Daily News.

It showed a picture of Michael alias Martin Luther King Jr. and a big headline “… mare.”

That had to be the end of “nightmare.”

It turns out that all sorts of black supremacist preachers and their Democrat white Uncle Toms and Aunt Jemimas had gotten together for a racist hatefest against President Donald J. Trump, and white Americans.
 

 

I’m not going to say, “Martin Luther King Jr. would be spinning in his grave, to know that his life, a celebration of love, has been turned into an occasion for hate,” because the people who say that are either brain-dead or liars.

The crooked racists who got together to play “Can you top this?” in their pornographic hatred of a white president and white Americans, spent years praising that same president, with their hands out, while he greased their palms.
 

New York officials denounce Trump as racist and maniac on Martin Luther King Day
By Jillian Jorgensen, Kerry Burke, and Leonard Greene
New York Daily News
Updated: Monday, January 15, 2018, 8:57 P.M.

The “fierce urgency of now” that Martin Luther King Jr. espoused was on full display across the city where preachers and politicians pressed for change in the new age of Trump.

On a day when America honored the man hailed as the Drum Major for Justice, New Yorkers and many across the nation protested a President derided as the poster boy for bigotry.
 

 

City and state officials ripped President Trump as they honored King at the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network’s Harlem headquarters — blasting the President for labeling Haiti and African nations “shithole countries,” and calling him everything from a racist to a maniac.

“It is embarrassing that this President comes from New York,” said Sharpton, who went on to call Trump’s vulgar comment a “national security threat” that could spark ISIS and Al Qaeda recruitment in Africa….

[Well, Al Sharpton said it, so it must be so.]

The holiday ceremony was an hours-long Trump trashing service, where speaker after speaker derided the President’s policies.

Mayor de Blasio criticized Trump’s tough immigration talk, and embraced the new Americans that helped the country thrive.

 

This man supports the killers and would-be killers of white policemen
 

“If you are a Haitian-American, thank you,” de Blasio said. “Thank you for your contributions to this city and this country. If you come from Africa and you have come here to make us better, thank you. If you left violence in El Salvador and now are helping to create a better community here in New York City, thank you. That is what we should be saying on a day that celebrates Martin Luther King Jr.”…

[Yes, MS-13 and the 18 Street gang “are helping to create a better community here in New York City.” Notice any groups that, according to Communist Mayor de Blah Blah Blah, are failing “to create a better community here in New York City”?]

In New York, thousands marked the holiday with a rally in Times Square, where demonstrators wrapped themselves in Haitian flags and protested political ignorance.
Holding signs that said, “Dump Trump,” and “Go Back to Your S---hole,” demonstrators urged the President to listen to some of King’s speeches.

“It’s important for America and Donald Trump to be re-educated,” said Roselaure Jorvelus, 36, a nurse practitioner from the Bronx.
 

 

“America stands on shoulders of my forefathers. As a Haitian-American, I’m a proud Haitian. It was very disrespectful. It was a disservice to the Haitian community and the African community to be called s---hole countries. This is my first rally ever. I just had to come — it was personal. We helped build this country. We are the American dream.”

[Ah, so Haitians built America, and whites must be re-educated. She is “a proud Haitian,” but not a proud America. Got it.]

“It’s important to show the nation that Haitians are a force,” said Nehemie Francois-Kamare, of Trenton, the red-and-blue Haitian flag shielding her from the cold.

“Everyone must know we are one nation and we’re stronger together. [Which nation is that? Haiti?] I am disgusted but I am not surprised given his track record.

It’s great we’ve come together on this important day, but our President is disgracing our nation. We’re no longer a progressive country. If Martin Luther King Jr. were here today, he’d be depressed, too.”

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said Trump’s comments were not just beneath the Oval Office but “beneath the dignity of humanity.”

“Our country is better than this, even if our President isn’t,” she said. “And we have to call out these racist comments for what they are and fight back with political action.”
 

 

And as the pols ripped Trump, they also urged people to mobilize on their anger — all the way to the voting booth.

“Let us remember that all of us this November must march in there with the spirit of Dr. King and vote and turn it around and contain this fool that sits in the White House that needs to be removed because he does not represent our interests,” said Public Advocate Letitia James.

So, that was the annual Michael “Martin Luther” King Jr. hatefest—a DPUSA two-minutes hate and campaign rally—all in the name of color-blind love.

I can't recall ever seeing a carnival of racist hatred at Washington's Birthday celebrations.

A Thirteenth Reason for Abolishing MLK Day

 


 

[“Twelve Reasons Why Martin Luther King Day Should be Abolished.”]
 

By Nicholas Stix

His name wasn’t Martin Luther King Jr.; it was Michael King Jr.

He was born Michael King Jr., the son of Michael King Sr. Neither the father nor the son ever changed his name. So, how can you have a national holiday celebrating a man under a name he never legally bore?

This is similar to the Barack Obama problem, but the BO problem is worse. In “Obama’s” case, a man was illegally elected president of America twice running under a fake name.

Google's Totalitarian Model

Via An Old Friend


“Don’t Be Evil”? Google is Becoming a Police State
Google employees are creating their own enclave of mandatory wokeness, but they're not content to keep this ideological policing within their own walls.
By Robert Tracinski
January 12, 2018
The Federalist

Back in the day, Google famously adopted the corporate motto, “Don’t be evil.” It hasn’t turned out so well.

The problem is that their motto didn’t define what constitutes evil, so it left an opening for narrow-minded zealots to commandeer company resources in a witch hunt against whatever they define as the forces of wickedness.
That’s what has happened at Google, which has adopted a corporate culture of quasi-totalitarian ideological uniformity that it is now starting to impose on everyone who uses its services. Which is, let’s face it, pretty much everyone. For now.

picture we get is a corporate culture of lockstep ideological uniformity, enforced by censorship, badgering, and blacklisting. Damore furnishes one note from a Google manager in 2015, addressed to “hostile voices.”
“I will never, ever hire/transfer you onto my team. Ever. I don’t care if you are perfect fit or technically excellent or whatever.

I will actively not work with you, even to the point where your team or product is impacted by this decision. I’ll communicate why to your manager if it comes up.

You’re being blacklisted by people at companies outside of Google. You might not have been aware of this, but people know, people talk. There are always social consequences.
Another manager proposed creating a “public-within-Google” document that “calls out those googlers who have made public statements that are unsupportive of diversity.” Other admit to maintaining their own blacklists based on “opinion[s] about religion, about politics, or about ‘social justice.'” While conservatives were regarded as “bad apples” to be excluded, other Googlers were recruiting or advocating for violent leftist “antifa” groups, with no apparent consequences. Then there’s this doozy:
Google’s internal company systems allowed employees and managers to maintain a ‘block list’ of other employees with whom they did not wish to interact. For example, if A adds B to her block list, B is not able to look A up in the company directory, communicate with A through the internal instant messaging system, view A’s contact information or management chain, or see A’s posts on internal social media. A and B would not be able to work together constructively on an engineering project if either person blocked the other.
“Peer bonuses” that were supposed to reward Google employees for outstanding work performance were also used, with management approval, to reward them for arguing against heterodox political views, while something called “social pecking” was used—”unambiguously,” in the words of one Google vice-president—to gang up on dissenters. If you read through the whole complaint you see what this kind of “pecking” looks like, and it looks a lot like—well, it looks a lot like angry political Twitter, complete with people lobbing obscenities at each other over politics.

What company in its right mind would encourage its employees to treat each other this way? Well, maybe a company that is not in its right mind. An internal presentation urging sensitivity for employees who are “living as a plural being”—which seems to refer to some kind of multiple personality disorder—lists one of the forbidden thoughts: “assumptions that we’re mentally damaged.” This is literally an environment where the insane are welcome and the sane are not.

All of this is part of a wider trend in Silicon Valley toward enforcing political conformity. Commenting on this trend a few years back, when some people were trying to blacklist Silicon Valley Trump supporters like Palmer Luckey and Peter Thiel, I wrote: “The logical conclusion, when you think about it, is that every company should have a Chief Political Officer in charge of monitoring the ideological deviations of its employees.” We can now see that Google is going one better. It has a whole culture of co-workers informing on each other and referring dissidents for what the Damore lawsuit calls “crowdsourced harassment.” I call it the self-enforcing police state.

Google is a private company and can create its own little enclave of mandatory wokeness if it likes, Damore’s lawsuit notwithstanding. The problem is that Googlers are not content to keep this ideological policing within their own walls. We discovered recently that when Donald Trump complains about “fake news,” that makes him the very worst threat in the entire world to freedom of the press.

But what happens when the Left inveighs against “fake news”? What happens is what Google just did to conservative websites—including The Federalist. David Harsanyi runs down the supposedly contested claims that Google has decided to flag for our Web site. It targets claims we didn’t make, links to debunkings that don’t address us, treats ideological partisans as if they are impartial fact-checkers, and applies scrutiny to publications on the Right that it doesn’t apply to those on the Left.

None of this makes sense if you view it as an objective attempt to police accuracy. It makes perfect sense if you view it as an attempt to pre-emptively discredit Googlers’ ideological enemies in the minds of unwary Google users. I don’t think this is going to be very effective, because it depends on Google users acting like Google employees and volunteering to enforce groupthink on themselves. But it is revealing about Google’s intent.

Some on the Right are responding to this by calling for Google to be regulated as a monopoly. That’s the best way to ensure that nothing changes. Regulating search engines as a public utility would tend to freeze the leading company in place, as regulators did with AT&T back in the day, and discourage new competitors from entering the field. Instead, let the market do its work. All the things that make me outraged about Google’s crusade for political correctness also strike me as signs of enormous weakness for the company, both internally and externally.

Internally, Google has the hallmarks of a company being run for its employees, to accommodate their private agendas, petty political vendettas, and weird psychological dysfunction—not to serve the interests of its shareholders, customers, or users. It’s clear from the documents in the Damore suit that there has been a disgruntled faction of right-leaning employees inside Google who have been complaining to the HR department about their treatment, but at this point, I doubt many of them will want to stay. There is already a steady trickle of Silicon Valley refugees, like Tim Ferriss and Sam Altman, fleeing what Ferriss calls “a peculiar form of McCarthyism masquerading as liberal open-mindedness.”

The other news from the lawsuit is that Google seems to have a very active HR department and a lot of mandatory internal meetings, which is also a bad sign. I expect that talented young engineers with nonconformist ideas won’t risk wasting years of their lives in such a repressive multi-layered bureaucracy. In short, the same impulses that led Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to upend established industries will now be working to upend Google.

Externally, Google’s whole business model is based on the fact that we let them relentlessly collect our data and mine it for information about our behavior and preferences. They’re trying to go even farther and get us to invite Google’s AI assistant into our homes, so they can monitor our lives in even finer and more intimate detail. If that’s their business plan, perhaps gaining a reputation as the PC thought police isn’t the best idea.

There is currently no good alternative to Google’s search engine—readers have recommended them to me, but so far none of them work half as well—or to some of its other services, like Web ads. But I’m certainly not going to volunteer to make any part of my life or my business too dependent on a Google product, and I’ll be eagerly looking for alternatives. Google isn’t quite 20 years old, and its dominance over the flow of our information is very, very recent in the scheme of things. It rose up by outmaneuvering bigger and more established rivals, and somebody can do the same to them.

If I were a tech entrepreneur, I would be slavering at the prospect of getting rich by knocking down such a bloated, bureaucratic, arrogant company. They’re practically asking for it, so get to work.

Twelve Reasons Why Martin Luther King Day Should be Abolished

 

 

By Nicholas Stix

1. King was such a bad man that his widow, Coretta Scott King, had to get a federal judge to place his FBI files under wraps until 2027, or there would have been scandal upon scandal, which would have either imperiled the movement to have a national holiday named for him, or at least have made such a movement look as ridiculous as it really was;

2. King is an idol like Mohammed. The holiday in his name therefore sanctifies every bad thing he ever did;

3. King was a serial plagiarist, who stole his title as a “Dr.” at Boston University from a white man, Jack Stewart Boozer. The King cult has helped destroy academic standards in America;

4. He was one of the greatest adulterers in American history, having literally had a girl (many girls, actually) or a prostitute (no disrespect to working girls intended) in every port. Thus has the King cult helped to destroy sexual morality in America;

5. He supported violence, declaring “Riots are the voice of the voiceless.” By his own admission, he deliberately used the so-called principle of non-violence to incite violence;

6. He degraded the black church into a partisan political organization that routinely violates the tax laws, and violates the very “constitutional principle” of the “separation of church and state” (never mind that no such principle exists in the constitution) that supporters of the King cult ruthlessly and one-sidedly impose on white Christians;

7. He was the most powerful supporter of Communism that this country had ever seen. He surrounded himself with Communists, and took their money: Stanley Levison, Hunter Pitts “Jack” O’Dell, Stanley Levison, Bayard Rustin, Myles Horton, Zilphia Horton, The Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, Carl Braden, Anne Braden, James A. Dombrowski, Aubrey Williams, Abner W. Berry, Ahmed Ben Bella, et. al.;

8. He destroyed the concept of civil rights. As the most celebrated leader of the so-called civil rights movement, more appropriately called the black rights movement, which through verbal legerdemain took something that is the inheritance of every legal American citizen—civil or constitutional rights—he made them the private property of blacks, including blacks that aren’t even citizens;

9. He was America’s greatest orator, and did something that to my knowledge, no other major American orator has done. Whereas politicians typically wait for a later speech to contradict what they have claimed to be all that is near and dear to them, King accomplished this feat in the same, “I Have a Dream” speech. At different points in the speech, he both called on America to be guided by the principle of color-blindness, and to impose race-specific policies granting welfare and reparations programs to blacks. Thus did MLK contribute more than any other American to the degradation of oratory;

10. He undermined the rule of law in general, as something that only whites must obey, but which must serve blacks, and particularly the principle, enshrined in the 14th Amendment of equality under the law. The 1964 U.S. Civil Rights Act, which his cultists credit him with getting enacted, has served to relegate whites to the status of second-class citizens;

11. He was a traitor, and helped to mainstream treason. On April 4, 1967, he delivered a speech at New York’s Riverside Church which could have been written in Hanoi, and delivered via diplomat’s pouch, so true was it to Communist lies. King claimed to be speaking on behalf of peace, but it was the peace of the graveyard. He was acting as the advocate of the North Vietnamese Communists and their allies; and

12. His true beliefs were the opposite of the color-blindness to which he paid lip-service. At the time of his murder, he was in Memphis demanding hard racial quotas for all public service jobs, matching the black proportion of the populace, qualifications be damned.

Martin Luther King Jr. Would Have Stood with Trump: He Didn't Want Migrants from Third-World Hellholes Here, Either!

 

 

By Reader-Researcher RC
 

This weekend, the media was imploding over the unconfirmed "s**thole countries" comment that President Trump was accused of making by two far left Democrats who took part in an immigration meeting with the President. Sen. Dick Durbin claimed that the President used 'hate-filled, vile and racist' language in an immigration meeting. Now, to clarify, even if the dubious and leaked comments were said by the President, there is nothing 'racist' about them; to claim that they are racist is to confuse ethnicity with citizenship. Despite this - one of the media's main talking points, and a talking point by crazed and corrupt leftist

Is the Chicago PD a Support Service for Armed Robbers?

 

“Aaron Goldstein, Democratic candidate for Illinois attorney general, speaks Jan. 8, 2018 during a forum at First Unitarian Church of Chicago in Hyde Park”
 

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

“Police described the three suspects as between 20 and 24 years old. They did not release a detailed description of the suspects.”
Either the Chicago Tribune is lying, or the Chicago PD is a criminal organization that should be prosecuted and disbanded. Refusing to share the descriptions of armed robbery suspects is aiding and abetting them.

And it’s all in vain. Because the CPD (or the Chicago Tribune) is protecting the armed robbers, we know who they are.

As Chicago Tribune reader, scrappy koala, put it in 2011, when Trib Editor Gerould W. Kern declared war on the daily’s readers, after they complained about Kern covering up racist black-on-white crime in Chicago’s poshest areas,

I've said it before and I'll say it again that you are right. Race doesn not matter and you dont need to tell us what race it is because we already know. Especially when you dont tell us. If this was White on Black crime there is no doubts on anyones mind that all of a sudden race would matter and you would report it but if its black criminals you wont say race which actually tells us the race. When ever a news site wont say the race I instantly know which race. This works pretty much 100% of the time without fail.
Candidate for Illinois attorney general robbed at gunpoint
By Tony Briscoe, Jeremy Gorner, and Peter Nickeas
January 12, 2018, 7:00 A.M.
Chicago Tribune

A candidate running for Illinois attorney general was robbed at gunpoint while he was taking promotional photos for his campaign Thursday afternoon in the Northwest Side ward where he’s also the Democratic committeeman, according to his campaign manager and authorities.

Aaron Goldstein, 42, and several members of his campaign team were in the middle of taking publicity shots when the robbery happened, according to Goldstein’s campaign manager.

The robbery took place about 3:25 p.m. in the 4600 block of North Albany Avenue in Albany Park, when three men in their early 20s approached them, according to a law-enforcement source.

One of the men flashed a handgun and demanded the camera equipment and other personal belongings from the team, according to police.

The gunman and two other men robbed Goldstein and four others of camera equipment and their cellphones before they ran away, the law enforcement source said. As of Thursday evening, no one was in custody, police said.

Police described the three suspects as between 20 and 24 years old. They did not release a detailed description of the suspects.

Campaign manager Robert Murphy, who was not with the team during the incident, said Goldstein, Democratic ward committeeman for the 33rd Ward and a resident of Albany Park, was taking promotional images for the campaign with an “in-the-neighborhood kind of” message.

Goldstein and the others weren’t harmed in the robbery, and they were later assured by police that the robbery wasn’t a targeted act, Murphy said.

“So, as far as the campaign, we are moving forward,” Murphy said. “Basically, this was a totally a random act of violence in the community. But when it happens to you, of course, you’re shooken up.

“He says he’s fine, and he was concerned about everyone else instead of how he is – but that’s just how he is.”

Goldstein is one in a field of eight candidates who are running in the Democratic primary for attorney general after Lisa Madigan announced she wouldn’t run for reelection. Goldstein, a supervising attorney at the Cook County Public Defender’s Office, unseated longtime incumbent and former Ald. Dick Mell to become the 33rd Ward Democratic committeeman in 2016.

Defending His Mother’s Racist Rapist: Amanda Kijera’s Son Speaks

 

 


 

[Re: “Haiti: Liberal Activist is Brutally Raped, Again and Again, by a Black Man, but She Blames White Men!”]

Imagine, if you will, your own mother is raped and you actually defend the rapist. That's where the Amanda Kijera story takes a Twilight Zonish twist that gives us an insight in how negroes think, what passes for thinking anyways. The rape “victim’s” son is named Alonzo Drayon Kijera, and he has publicly gone on record as “clarifying the black man's ‘decision’ to rape his mother”:

“Amanda Kijera’s Son Clarifies His Mother Holding the White Man Responsible for a Black Man’s Decision to Rape Her.”

[N.S.: That’s good ‘ol Lor Marie’s Blog! She used to cross swords with me here.]

I couldn't find a photo online of this mope but with a name like “Alonzo Drayon,” I think it's safe to assume his father is black, and he identifies with his black side.

This is what Mr. Kijera wrote to an online blogger. I have posted responses to his “points”:

*As her son it is my common belief that it is due to the ignorance of the white society that our brothers and sisters have little tolerance for the white society*

WTF? What does that have to do with your mom being raped? Obviously setting up to frame the assault in a biased political context. "Common belief"? Negroes love to say that. Common belief is a way for negroes to say: I'm coming from a position of truth because I'm referring to something that everybody just knows and it's absolute truth because "everybody knows it." "Everybody" means all blacks and their white liberal lackeys. Common beliefs are usually fantasies concocted by racist blacks that get passed around and repeated over and over until they become accepted fact.

*Her statement was not to say that every Caucasian is this way, because therefore she would be contradicting herself*

Well yeah, duh. She'd be calling herself or any other white a rapist. I think we realize that, at least most whites do, I'm not sure about most of your brothas and sistas. Is there another race of people that pretentiously states redundancies more than negroes?

*Instead of further more antagonizing this realist, she should be praised. Praised for the eyes she has opened across the nation*

Huh? OK, let me elucidate what he's trying to express in his childishly illiterate fashion: Instead of condemning the realist (I think he misspelled "rapist" there), and possibly "antagonizing" (you know, don't make the negroes angry) him, his mother is a hero for blaming the white man for her rape, despite the fact it was a black man that did the deed. That absolves me, a black man and her son, of any complicity in this act, due to my race. However, it's perfectly acceptable to make all white men complicit, due to their race.

*To see my own mothers name burn into flames due to exploits and white supremacists i not only disrespectful but proves her point all the more*

Who's burning her name into flames? The PC media, if anything, has treated the story with kid gloves, as it always does with black race violence. Due to "exploits and white supremacists"? Proves what points? What the hell is he talking about? More confused thinking that defies analysis, but to negroes it sounds profound and must mean something so they shake their fists and nod knowingly when they hear it. OK, I don't know how old her son is, maybe he's pretty young still but even when I was a kid I would have realized that was crap.

I'll tell you what, Alonzo. Go meet the man that raped your mom, slap him a high-five, and then the two of you can sit around and rap about how it's righteous to rape white bitches (even if it's your own mother), coz of the way the white man is keepin' you down.

Joseph Sobran: Journalism v. Conservatism

 


 

By Joseph Sobran
The National Review Years, 11/5/1990 -- Words seem to form partnerships. At one time, you discriminated between. Now you discriminate against. "Discrimination" now betokens not a fine mind, but a character flaw: one that makes you Politically Incorrect, by the way.

Liberalism has succeeded in imposing its verbal prescriptions on the whole population: everyone must now mind even his or her pronouns, or face obloquy. Politesse has shifted from "Negro" to "black" to "African-American," each new whim of whoever decides these things as imperious as the last. A sectarian ideology has triumphed when it has turned itself into an etiquette that all must observe.

We all sense that the language has been marshaled into Political Correctness. Is there any central ordering principle?

I think so. It was expressed succinctly in the chant of the Stanford protestors: "Hey hey, ho ho, Western culture's gotta go." We're being nudged into a series of little repudiations of the Western patrimony. The changing rules embody this. Profanity and obscenity are okay; but new taboos forbid "racism," "sexism," and other Politically Incorrect attitudes. (Religion is purely optional, but bigotry must be "eliminated.")
 

 

In The Whig Interpretation of History, Herbert Butterfield lamented the tendency of historians to see the controversies of the past in the anachronistic categories of "progressive" and "reactionary": Whig history interpreted the clash of, say, Reformers and Church not in terms the raging opponents would have understood, but as a battle between the forces of the future (Luther) and the forces of the past (Pope Leo X).

This way of flattening complicated disputes into easily grasped melodrama has trickled down into journalism. Many "news" stories have as their subtext the battle between Progressive good guys and Reactionary villains. Despite the official journalistic ethic of neutrality, unmistakable moral commitment creeps into news reports of conflict between pope and theologian, government and protestor, business and labor, white and black, male and female. We sense we're getting cues as to which side we should be rooting for.

The Progressive forces are always driven by the best motives: they are compassionate, courageous, conscientious, enlightened, future-oriented, peace-loving. These terms all have a left-wing odor about them now (though the media rarely use the term "left- wing"). The Reactionaries, meanwhile, are driven by atavisms: hate, fear, superstition, greed, ignorance, selfishness, sheer resistance to "change."

"Hate," for example, has become associated exclusively with "right-wing" causes in journalistic discourse. (See Newsweek, passim.) No Progressive ever hates anyone, though he (or she) may feel righteous anger or rage. Journalese does use the term "right-wing" freely, but without defining it: it is a catchall for anything belonging to the dark past. Theocracy, capitalism, slavery, militarism: these are right wing. The fascist, the monarchist, the libertarian, the constitutionalist: all, somehow, right wing, though their only common denominator is that they all oppose socialism.

What conservatives call "bias" in the media is really more like a Weltanschauung, half-conscious, but shaping and shading every- thing. Journalists may try hard to be accurate and to suppress overt partisanship; they usually don't realize they are taking sides in the very categories they start with. They don't understand that there are alternative categories.
 

Behind the Times

In the mind of the thoroughly assimilated journalist, the conservative is not someone who has a specific philosophy to be discussed, listened to, debated. He's simply someone who's behind the times, clinging to the disreputable and embarrassing past that all educated people should have outgrown. The conservative is not so much wrong as defunct, doomed to extinction. Why debate a dinosaur?

The ultimate Progressive categories are not heaven and hell, or good and evil, or order and chaos, but Future and Past. Even the cusswords of the Progressive are chronological: archaic, outdated, Neanderthal, medieval, antediluvian, fossilized, obsolete, mossbound, prehistoric, antiquated, troglodytic, thirteenth- (or eighteenth-) century, etc. To the liberal these are ultimate condemnations, unanswerable. The Past, him bad!

So for the dramaturgy of journalism, the problem in every controversy is a simple matter of typecasting: Which side represents the Past, and which the Future? And this sort of stereotyping, with its built-in predictions as to who's bound to prevail, has led journalists into a series of embarrassing errors. Reagan was Reactionary; therefore he was not a viable candidate. The pro-life movement was Reactionary; therefore it wasn't news (unlike, say, the civil-rights movement). The Shah of Iran and Somoza were Reactionary; therefore they were bound to be supplanted by Progressive forces. (And what do you do with phenomena like 2 Live Crew, which represents free speech -- Progressive -- but is horribly sexist - Reactionary?)

History itself has begun to demolish the Progressive mythology. Socialism is in moral, political, and economic ruins. The noble savages of the Third World have shown us what comes after "liberation." And it's all so tiresome. We have seen the Future, and it has acquired its own discreditable past. Progressive hope is just about used up. But journalism hasn't yet learned any other language.

Haiti: Liberal Activist is Brutally Raped, Again and Again, by a Black Man, but She Blames White Men!

Liberal Activist is Brutally Raped in Haiti by a Black Man – Blames White Men

The Gateway Pundit

Liberal activist Amanda Kijera traveled to Haiti on a mission to prove that the portrayal of black men as “savages” was not accurate. Kijera was brutally raped. Of course, she blamed the white man for the violence.

[N.S.: Kijera was a liar from the get-go: The media and academia did not portray “black men as ‘savages.’” On the contrary, they had been sugar-coating the image of black men for years. Her whole mission was a racial fairy tale.]


The US Patriot reported:

Amanda Kijera was on a humanitarian trip to Haiti, when she was violently raped by a black man. The act was both coincidental and devastating, as Kijera was actually in Haiti to dispel the “myths” that violence against women on the island was overstated by women’s rights organizations. The intention of Kijera’s trip was to push back on the portrayal of black men as “savages” in the media. Her hope was that she would eliminate misconceptions and push back against common views imposed by “the man.” However, Kijera’s trip took a turn for the worse when one of the men she had worked to protect cornered her on the rooftop, and raped her numerous times.

“The experience was almost more than I could bear,” Kijera wrote about the incident, “I pleaded with him to honor my commitment to Haiti, to him as a brother in the mutual struggle for an end to our common oppression, but to no avail. He didn’t care.”

According to Kijera, she eventually stopped fighting him, claiming that there was nothing she could do to stop him from raping her repeatedly. After the tragic experience, she placed the blame on a very unexpected course. Women are not the source of their oppression; oppressive policies and the as-yet unaddressed white patriarchy which still dominates the global stage are,” she explained.

She also went on to argue that it is up to the United Nations to support people who are forced to bear the brunt of black male aggression. Kijera makes the outrageous claim that dependency on white people causes them to act out against them. She alludes that this was the reason for her attack.

A Bunch of Great Crime Pictures/Films Noir are on the Way from TCM in Mid-January, Starting with Witness Protection Night on Saturday, January 13th!

 

 

By David in TN
Friday, January 12, 2018 at 1:02:00 PM EST


TCM has a lot of good films this month.

On Saturday night, January 13, TCM has a Witness Protection Night, starting with Bullitt (1968) at 8 pm ET. Bullitt is one of Steve McQueen's signature roles. Robert Vaughn co-stars as a federal (?) prosecutor who wants McQueen to guard his mob witness. Vaughn often said Bullitt's plot "didn't make sense."

A funny thing is Robert Vaughn was considering running for the Senate in California but found out playing the "Chalmers" character had finished off his hopes of a political career.
 

 

Another Noir follows, The Narrow Margin (1952), with Charles McGraw and Marie Windsor. (It was remade in 1990, starring Gene Hackman and Anne Archer).

Narrow Margin 1990 remake; Gene Hackman and Anne Archer atop train
 

 

The third film is Murder, Inc. (1960), based on the book by prosecutor Burton Turkus and Sid Feder. This book has been in print since 1951. Peter Falk made his debut, chewing the scenery as Abe “Kid Twist” Reles, who decided to rat out his Murder Inc. colleagues. Falk’s performance got him the first of two consecutive Best Supporting Actor nominations.

Stuart Whitman and Mai Britt played fictional characters. Simon Oakland, noted character actor, is a detective. Henry Morgan, the 50's and 60's New York radio-TV personality, plays Burton Turkus, who was hired by the Brooklyn DA to prosecute the Murder, Inc. suspects.
 


This is the first time Murder, Inc. has been shown on TCM.

TCM's Sunday Film Noir of the Week on January 14 at 10 a.m. ET, is Where Danger Lives (1950). Robert Mitchum plays a doctor who falls for a woman who attempted suicide, a logical lead-in for a film noir.
 

 

Also on Sunday at 4 p.m. ET, TCM shows Knock on Any Door (1949). Humphrey Bogart plays a lawyer who defends a young hood (John Derek) accused of killing a cop. Derek's character is portrayed as a Victim of Society. This film was called, in the parlance of the time, a "Sob Story."
 

Nick Romano says, "Live fast, die young, and have a good looking corpse"

DACA: The Immigration Trojan Horse

DACA: The Immigration Trojan Horse

How the original DREAM act was designed to cover 90% of the illegal alien population in the US.

January 12, 2018
By Michael Cutler
Front Page Mag

Today DACA (Deferred Action-Childhood Arrivals) is a major issue for the Trump administration, with politicians from both parties attempting to persuade President Trump to provide lawful status for the illegal aliens who had been granted temporary lawful status in an ill-conceived and, indeed, illegal program that had been implemented by President Obama, a politically adept manipulator of language and a master of deception.

On December 18th I participated in an interview on Fox News to discuss DACA and the fact that according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) legalizing the estimated population of “Dreamers” would cost an estimated $26 billion.

On January 9th President Trump conducted a bi-partisan White House meeting to consider a compromise that would provide lawful immigration status for the approximately 800,000 illegal aliens who enrolled in DACA. As the San Francisco Chronicle reported, Trump seeks a "bill of love" from Congress for "Dreamers"

The “deal” would require funding a border wall, ending “chain migration” and perhaps, making E-Verify mandatory. Of course without an adequate number of ICE agents, mandatory E-Verify would be of limited value since unscrupulous employers could simply hire illegal aliens “off the books” and without agents to conduct field investigations these criminally deceptive employment practices would not be discovered.

President Trump’s previous call for hiring an additional 10,000 ICE agents was not mentioned by the participants in the meeting. This is extremely worrisome.

A lack of effective interior enforcement of our immigration laws, has for decades, undermined the integrity of the immigration system. In fact the 9/11 Commission cited the lack of interior enforcement as a key vulnerability that terrorists, and not only the 9/11 hijackers, had exploited to embed themselves in the U.S. in preparation to carrying out deadly attacks.

DACA was a travesty foisted on America and Americans by the Obama administration, from its inception, was a scam based on lies and false suppositions. Legalizing these 800,000 illegal aliens would, in point of fact, legitimize Obama’s illegal action.

Obama claimed that he was invoking “prosecutorial discretion” when he stood in the White House Rose Garden on June 15, 2012 and announced that “since Congress failed to act” (to pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform) he was going to act by creating DACA. But in reality Congress did act: it voted down legislation known as Comprehension Immigration Reform and, in so doing, took an action that is consistent with the role of Congress as established by the U.S. Constitution that created the system of “checks and balances.”

For Mr. Obama, however, the problem was that Congress did not act the way he wanted it to act.

Two days after that speech in 2012, I wrote an Op-Ed, “Obama Invokes Prosecutorial Discretion to Circumvent Constitution and Congress,” in which I noted that what Obama had referred to as “Prosecutorial Discretion” should, in reality, be referred to as “Prosecutorial Deception.”

Legitimate use of prosecutorial discretion can provide a pragmatic solution to real-world limitations of law enforcement resources in a manner comparable to a triage.  For example, law enforcement officers frequently ignore relatively minor violations of law so that those limited resources can be available to address more serious violations of law.  Consider, for example, the police officer operating speed radar who ignores cars that exceed the speed limit by a small margin, but are being otherwise driven in a safe manner.  This enables the police officer to focus on vehicles that are being driven dangerously. Under DACA, however, illegal aliens were not ignored to conserve limited resources.  In fact, limited resources were not conserved but were squandered to provide temporary lawful status to a huge number of illegal aliens without legal authority or justification.

Moreover, DACA constituted the de facto creation of law without the legislative process, but by unconstitutional executive fiat. Let’s now consider the notion of “deferred action,” the foundation upon which DACA was purportedly created. There are legitimate provisions in the immigration system to provide aliens with “deferred action” when it is a matter of compassion, for humanitarian purposes. The key word is “deferred.” What is deferred is the ultimate required departure of non-immigrant aliens.

For example, if a family from another country lawfully came to the United States as non-immigrants for a temporary visit with friends or relatives in the United States and one of the members of the family was injured in an accident or became ill, those aliens could apply for deferred action so that they would not have to leave the United States until the family crisis was resolved.

As an INS agent I dealt with such cases. Generally the doctor who was treating the injured or ill family member would provide documentation to immigration authorities to verify the medical situation, with periodic updates.

As an INS special agent I was responsible for conducting investigations to make certain that applications were not fraudulent.

Generally these aliens would not be granted employment authorization except under the most extraordinary of circumstances if they needed to remain in the United States for a protracted period of time. However, DACA essentially “dropped a net” over 800,000 illegal aliens, not out of humanitarian concerns because of an unforeseen emergency but as a means of achieving a political objective.

Obama claimed that his action was to help young people who were brought to the United States by their parents and, consequently, were the victims of their parents’ actions over which they had no control.

Obama was counting on the fact that Americans are among the most compassionate people in the world, especially where children are concerned.

Media reports furthered this narrative and, to this day, many ill-informed Americans believe that all aliens who participated in DACA were teenagers. But in fact, the age cutoff was actually 31. These aliens simply needed to claim that they had been brought to the United States prior to their 16th birthdays. Those aliens today might now be as old as 36 years of age. DACA should have been called DACCA (Deferred Action-Claimed Childhood Arrivals).

There were virtually no interviews or field investigations to verify any information or claims contained in the applications.

(The DREAM Act would have allowed aliens as old as 35 years of age to apply to participate in the amnesty that would have been created had the legislation passed.)

It is vital to note that even the term DREAM Act and the derivative term “Dreamers” is hypocritical. Ever since the administration of Jimmy Carter, the term “Alien” has been eradicated from the immigration debate, not out of supposed “political correctness” but as a means of Orwellian thought control and Newspeak.

However, the “DREAM Act” is an acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. It is maddening that when the imagery of the “American Dream” can be exploited, the term “alien” becomes palatable—but only when used in conjunction with this bit of Orwellian deception.

If the purpose of the DREAM Act was to help young illegal aliens, why did the politicians and “Gang of Eight” not simply limit it to aliens who had not yet attained the age of 21 and who could provide immigration authorities with their current school transcripts and report cards to verify their status as students in good standing?

What was never discussed in the mainstream media is that the whole point to the DREAM Act, pushed by some members of Congress and particularly the “Gang of Eight,” was to construct a legislated immigration “Trojan Horse.”

The DREAM Act established 35 years of age as the cutoff age for this amnesty because it would have covered an estimated 90% of the illegal alien population in the United States. Furthermore, without the ability to conduct interviews, let alone field investigations, aliens could easily lie about their identities, their dates of birth and even their dates of entry into the United States.

There would be no way for adjuration officers to refute the claims of the aliens who participated in the program.

The DREAM Act was a carefully disguised version of failed legislation known as Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

In 2007, after I testified about Comprehensive Immigration Reform before several hearings in the House and Senate, I wrote an Op-Ed for the Washington Times, Immigration bill a ‘No Go' in which I suggested that the legislative disaster be renamed the “Terrorist Assistance and Facilitation Act” because under that legislation, millions of illegal aliens who had entered the United States surreptitiously and without inspection, would have been provided with lawful status and official identity documents.

This would have violated the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony. I was gratified when then-Senator Jeff Sessions quoted my Op-Ed from the floor of the U.S. Senate during the contentious floor debate on Comprehensive Immigration Reform on three separate days, in which he shared my concerns and my proposed new name for that legislation.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) created a massive amnesty program that ultimately led to the greatest influx of illegal aliens in the history of our nation. It has been said that insanity is doing the same things the same way and expecting a different outcome.

As a highly successful real estate magnate, President Trump must especially understand that just as it is unwise to erect a building on a swamp, legislation must be constructed on morally and legally solid ground.

 

DACA Rapid Response Plan

 

 

Folks:


We need immediate action on DACA! This letter is broken into five separate sections. Click on a title in the Table of Contents to jump to that section:





 

1. The Issue



Our nation stands at the precipice. The Left has made unprecedented assaults on the rule of law, the integrity of elections, the first amendment, the second amendment, our religious liberties, our education, our culture and our national security. It literally threatens our very way of life.


Nothing captures this reality more than illegal immigration. Illegal aliens bring crime, disease, unemployment, epidemic vote fraud and the prospect of terrorism. They swamp our legal system, hospitals and welfare with overwhelming needs, while arrogantly demanding more. Illegals facilitate the drug epidemic, and commit murder and other crimes out of proportion to their numbers. Neighborhoods and schools degenerate while beleaguered taxpayers are forced to shell out to cover the exploding costs.


The big business of cross-border human trafficking also facilitates the illegal entry of terrorists from al Qaeda, ISIS, Hezbollah and others, a growing threat from Central and South America where terrorists have set up shop.


Despite the overwhelming problems and blatant defiance of our laws, almost all Democrat politicians and some Republicans actually encourage illegal aliens. Republicans falsely claim that there aren't enough Americans workers to fill factories. Democrats cynically use the immigration system, legal and illegal, for the specific purpose of increasing their voting bloc, while calling us all "bigots" if we object to their scam.


This was stunningly revealed in a secret memo exposed by The Daily Caller on Tuesday. It was from John Podesta's well-connected leftist propaganda mill, the Center for American Progress.
Quote:


"If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond. In short, the next few weeks will tell us a lot about the Democratic Party and its long-term electoral prospects."


The "Dreamers" of course are the illegal aliens that Democrats (and some really stupid Republicans) want to reward with the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act (aka DREAM Act), granting them amnesty, education subsidies and a laundry list of other taxpayer-funded bennies.


Right now we face a critical issue that requires immediate action. On January 19, the president must sign a budget bill to keep the government from shutting down. Both Congress and the president want to reach a deal on DACA - the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Somehow, they hope to include this in whatever budget deal they work out.


DACA was one of President Obama's more outrageous - and illegal - actions; regulatory amnesty. It gave illegal alien youths who arrived in the U.S. before 2007 (but how does anyone verify that?), temporary legal status, i.e. action on their illegal status was deferred. They are referred to as "kids" but almost all are over 19 and half are 25 to 35. This group is a subset of the so-called "dreamers."


There are about 800,000 illegals signed up in the program, of 1.76 million or more who could quality. They are characterized as "victims" because their families brought them here before they were old enough to decide for themselves.


Their families - also illegal - are still here. This rarely gets mentioned. If they are "victims," why aren't their families responsible? Why can't their families take them back? If these DACA "kids" are amnestied, their families would become eligible as well. The numbers would then swell to as many as 5 million. It would be the largest amnesty in U.S. history.


The Democrats want to amnesty all 1.76 million, that is, all the "Dreamers." And that is a very conservative estimate. If this is approved, their families go on the short list, and the total amnesty could be even larger. Such an amnesty would change voting patterns permanently and would spell the end of our Republic as we know it. In fact, a recent analysis shows that amnesty for even just the original 800,000 could swing elections in 4 critical states and accomplish the same thing.


Candidate Donald Trump promised to end DACA on his first day in office. Instead he has equivocated. He ended the program in September, but gave Congress until March to come up with a legislative "fix." Now he's negotiating with Congress to include this fix in the January 19 budget deal.


 

2. The Response



Amnesty makes a mockery of our rule-of-law. We should not have to be lobbying Congress and the President to do their jobs by enforcing the law and securing our borders.


Mark Levin has called Trump's move toward border compromise a "complete surrender." However, today, Trump pushed back against a proposal by a new bipartisan "group of six" Democrats and RINOs -- the usual suspects -- that defies his basic demands. He is not budging. So our messaging to President Trump should encourage him to keep the faith rather than pillory him.


We need to insist on a secure border that includes:


1. No amnesty

2. Send them ALL home!

3. Build the Wall

4. End chain migration

5. End birthright citizenship (i.e. anchor babies), and birth tourism.

6. End the Diversity Lottery

7. Enforce mandatory E-Verify

8. Mandatory prison sentences for those who re-enter illegally (like Kate Steinle's killer)

9. Formally halt ICE's "catch and release" policy for non-violent offenders

10. No special treatment for Central/South American illegal alien youths - currently able to appeal for asylum, while Mexican illegals can be sent home immediately.



Reps. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Michael McCaul R-TX), Raul  Labrador (R-ID) and Martha McSally R-AZ), have proposed a new border control bill. HR-4760. DC insiders believe this is the best deal that could possibly be made on this issue. NumbersUSA supports this bill, saying it "greatly reduces overall immigration."


HR-4760 includes:


1. A renewable 3-year non-immigrant visa for about 700,000 DACA illegal aliens

2. Wall funding, other border upgrades and more border patrol agents

3. Immediate end to chain migration

4. End to Diversity Lottery

5. Mandatory E-Verify phased in over 2 years

6. Defunding sanctuary cities



The bill does not offer green cards, so there is no direct path to citizenship, however NumbersUSA states:


"the bill's authors expect many of them to eventually obtain a green card through an employer or by marrying a U.S. citizen. I think we should expect that all or most of the recipients of any DACA amnesty will eventually have a path to citizenship."


This means families could get citizenship too; another 2 - 5 million.


Daniel Horowitz has provided a very good analysis of this bill. He concludes:


"If every one of these provisions is a red line and serve as the floor, not the ceiling, for “America first” demands, and if they intend for these amnesty provisions to be the ceiling and not the floor for amnesty, I can stand behind this bill. (Emphasis added)


"However, if they plan to whittle down the demands in the face of inevitable opposition from Democrats and even some Republicans, this bill will backfire because it will only serve as a tool to get Republicans on board with amnesty... Amnesty will become the universal imperative, and we will be left with the same result as the other seven amnesties in recent years: amnesty now and phony promises of enforcement later." (Emphasis added)


I leave it to you to decide which path this legislation will probably take. As we have said, there is no reason we should have to be negotiating about illegal aliens. They broke the law. Period.

Watch then share by email and social media.



VIDEO: Laura Ingraham Warns Trump: If You Break Immigration Promises, ‘Expect a Political Revolt From Base’


Step 2: Pick up your phone and call as many GOP lawmakers in DC as possible. Call to say:


"I am livid that your focus is passing DACA & Comprehensive Amnesty for illegal aliens for enforcement promises we can't trust! Americans should not be forced to trade Amnesty for secure borders. I want to see all Republicans face primary opponents over this betrayal on DACA!"


Please start with the Republican members of the House and Senate in your state and then expand outward to nearby states. CALL then WRITE as many as you can quickly!

4. Key Facts & Talking Points


  • GOP suicide pact: DACA amnesty could flip 4 critical GOP states.
  • Amnesty = 5 million New Americans: GOP plan is not amnesty, but would make future amnesty more likely. Democrats will push for it nonstop.
  • DACA Amnesty will cost $26 billion: Advocates claim DACA employees with boost IRS tax revenues. This is false.
  • Families WILL NOT be separated: Pro-amnesty groups whine that if DACA "kids" don't get amnesty, the DACA families will be ripped apart. How so? Illegal alien parents and children are all here now. Parents need to take their kids home. If the "kids" came here alone, sending them back will reunite them with their families! So no one is being ripped from their family!
  • Illegal aliens take American jobs. Amnesty just makes it legal - rewarding both aliens and businesses that hire them.
  • Illegal border crossings skyrocket: Illegal border crossings plummeted to historic lows early in President Trump's first year as shown in the chart below. Now they are up again, based on the perception that Trump is softening on border control.


 

5. Last Thoughts



This is a critical issue and it may be our last opportunity to get real border reforms. We should all make this our number one priority every day from now until January 19. Bury them with your demands!


Good luck and good hunting!
