Judge to Arizona: Viva La Reconquista!

As flawed as Judge Susan Bolton’s decision was yesterday, it may be a blessing in disguise for the United States, if not Arizona. The rationales the judge employed to support her decision were so obviously political that one cannot help but wonder if there is a federal czarship in her future.

Although I do believe the Supreme Court will eventually uphold Arizona SB1070 the purpose of its initial intent has been served.

The backlash from yesterday’s ruling will be ringing in the Democrat’s ears long after Election Day 2010, and will most likely cost Obama the White House in 2012. Americans are about as fed up with illegal immigration as with any issue I can recall in my lifetime. This is one issue that will not fade into obscurity when the New York Times moves on to exploring the mating habits of Greenwich Village gays.

While I don’t question the motives behind SB1070, I have to believe that its author, Arizona Senator Russell Pearce had to realize the political advantage of its failure, should the judge roll that way.

One reason elected congressional representatives in Washington have avoided fixing immigration for 30 years is their shameless pandering for Hispanic votes; but in the process they have misread the mounting anger within the ranks of the largest minority in the country—white guys.

Jan Brewer has come from relative obscurity, even in Arizona, to national prominence almost overnight. The Governor, who ascended to office after Janet Napolitano became Homeland Security secretary, has a 19-point lead over here Democrat opponent and will undoubtedly be “point man” in Arizona’s plight, all the way to the High court.

Listen carefully because you will not see this on the nightly news: Hispanics making all the noise in Arizona right now are out numbered three to one in this fight. CBS and even Fox News will show you La Raza-led banner waivers in the streets night after night, but America has made up her mind on this issue. It is not and never has been a racial issue. Mexicans and Americans have been crossing our southern borders without papers for 150 years.

The larger issue here is post 9-11 security but Americans are also steamed about the never-ending tide of émigrés who are establishing legal rights where they should not exist. We are a benevolent people but we do not respond well to those who take advantage of our kindness.

Many Hispanic émigrés are coming into the U.S. for the sole purpose of establishing citizenship for babies yet unborn. They are called “anchor babies” and the process is called “baby dropping” and it gives illegals universal rights to a plethora of free services delved out by local and state governments, while we foot the bill.

Anytime I find myself agreeing with super RHINO Lindsey Graham I know I either have a fever or the South Carolina Republican forgot to take his moderate pill. Last night on Greta Van Susteren, Graham said that he was considering introducing a constitutional amendment to stop automatic citizenship.

Bravisimo Lindsey! Get that paper in the tube, dude.

Judge Bolton’s obvious political verdict in the SB170 case will come back to haunt Democrats in the fall election and beyond. Perhaps in the long term it will hurt Republicans with Hispanic voters, but it should give them incentive to fix immigration once and for all.

Un-defunding the War: Liberals Fail to Undermine the Troops

In The Enemy Among Us, The Haters on 28/07/2010 at 19:07

Today the House passed a $33 billion funding bill for our troops in Afghanistan. More than a third of House Democrats voted against it.

The controlling liberals in the Democratic Party—the ones who ruined the Party—have, since the beginning of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, publically declared their support for the young men and women who serve in our military, while denouncing the wars they are fighting.

They did it in Vietnam.

By the end, that war was a stellar, if exhaustingly long, success. By 1971, one could travel from one end of South Vietnam to the other, virtually unmolested by the enemy. This was due largely to General Creighton Abrams’ “clear-and-hold strategy.” Of course the Democrats fought him tooth and nail. But between early 1969 and June of 1972, Abrams sent 500,000 American servicemen home, reducing troop-strength from over one half million to under 50,000. Bet you thought we lost in Vietnam.

Yet Congress defunded the war, and with the help of the U.S. press, turned it into a humiliating defeat.

I have been vocal against the U.S. strategy in the Middle East. We cannot win the Afghanistan War. At best we may stabilize the region for a short time and perhaps run the Taliban and al Qaeda into Yemen and Pakistan.

General David Petraeus is a brilliant battlefield commander and he has created a counterinsurgency strategy that would undoubtedly work in any other war at any other time with any other enemy. It is a work of genius developed from his Princeton doctoral dissertation: “The American Military and the Lessons of Vietnam: A Study of Military Influence and the Use of Force in the Post-Vietnam Era.”

But it will not work against an enemy steeped in a barbaric 7th century Muslim ideology. Muslims are not Chinese communists.

Christians and Jews are the historic enemies of large factions within the Muslim religion. These are not, as some will have you believe, a few groups of errant thugs that “hijacked” a religion; more than 110 million Muslims worldwide practice Sharia law. There are dozens of Sharia courts in Great Britain today. Muslim groups in the U.S. are trying to establish them here.

None of this means, however, that we should cut and run from the field of battle, without inflicting serious damage on this enemy. Our young servicemen and women must come home knowing that their service has not been in vain.

What it does mean is that General Petraeus should reevaluate his strategy.

War must be brutal and unrelenting and quick. In the four short years—although it must have seemed an eternity—of WWII, U.S. troops defeated a worldwide enemy so formidable that it exterminated nine million people as though it were a pastime. The defeat was decisive and thorough, carried out on every continent on earth.

We destroyed our enemy. George C. Marshal and Douglas MacArthur realized that the time for nation building was after we had accomplished that mission.

The U.S. Army should incinerate Afghan poppy fields now. America should never support a Narco nation, not matter how poor or ignorant. There will be time to help them later. Next we should go on the offensive against any sign of collaboration with our enemy by the Afghan people. If anything moves against us we should kill it.

This is how wars are won, and there is no precedent for winning any other way.

Now a Word About a Georgia Peach

A couple of days ago we did our due diligence on Andrew Breitbart, and rightly so. His release of the Shirley Sherrod video and the accompanying story relating her “racist” remarks was not only shoddy reporting, it was a little stupid.

Brietbart was set up. And he should have gone into greater depth on the story, because Sherrod’s remarks were far from chaste. Had a white bureaucrat made the statement, “his own kind,” about a black person in a speech anywhere in the known world, the firestorm would still be raging. At the very least Sherrod’s speech was racially insensitive.

Shirley Sherrod is clearly not the brightest peach on the tree. I have no idea what her educational background is but let’s just say that she had to pass a lot of affirmative action chits across that teacher’s desk to pass her grammar exam.

Secondly, she lied.

In her 40-plus minute speech, Ms. Sherrod accused a local sheriff in her hometown of “lynching” a man during the 1940s.  The charge is patently untrue and the United States Supreme Court affirmed it.  In actuality the prisoner, a man Sherrod claims was her relative, was taken from the sheriff by an angry mob and beaten to death.

The fact that her speech was littered with inaccuracies aside: Shirley Sherrod is a self-promoting product of a social mistake that over the last 42 years has not only failed to bring the realization of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Dream, but has driven the wedge of racial division deeper than ever. Ms. Sherrod is a product of the Great Society.

Ms. Sherrod is the product of a hijacked civil rights movement, a once grand movement with glorious dreams and righteous goals, a movement that long ago lost sight of Dr. King’s high and honorable intentions, by charlatans like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

In Ms. Sherrod’s world, the African American who screams “racist” the loudest and longest gets the government job.

Since the uproar over her statements at a Georgia NAACP meeting—made several months ago—and her subsequent firing by an increasingly inept Obama Administration, Shirley Sherrod has been offered reinstatement with the USDA, not in Georgia mind you, but a much better, more prestigious position in Washington. Never mind she probably is not qualified for the job she had; the Obama Administration has penitence to do.

But instead of graciously accepting the promotion Shirley Sherrod has shamelessly tried to promote herself into—I’ll call it a “Peach Summit”—with Obama.  Sherrod points out that the President has no experience with the plight of American blacks, and that she can help.

While the newly-minted MSNBC martyr makes a good a point—Barack Obama is about as African American as Kusno Sukarno—this is nevertheless a blatant attempt to blackmail the President into legitimizing her quest for a book deal and $10,000 a night on the Rubber Tofu Circuit.

That’s how the game is played in the Peach State. When they offer you a T-bone you scream louder and hold out for Filet mignon.

Shirley Sherrod does not quiet sink to the level of Tawana Brawley, but she certainly is not the Georgia Peach she makes herself out to be, either.
