Time to Repeal Disastrous 1965 Immigration Act!

Time to Repeal the Disastrous 1965 Immigration Act

by Selwyn Duke  at American Thinker:

Question: If someone sells you on something with false advertising and it does the exact opposite of what was promised, are you not entitled to return the product and get a refund?  In fact, if the product caused you harm, should you not in addition be compensated for damages?

Consider that when Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) was pushing the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 (S.500) on the Senate floor, he said, “First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually.”

Actually, he was right.  We now absorb more than a million immigrants annually.

Kennedy next stated, “Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same.”

The average yearly number of immigrants prior to ’65 was 250,000.  Even with Common Core math, that’s still less than one million-plus.

Kennedy also claimed, “Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset.”  His brother, Senator Robert Kennedy (D-N.Y.), chimed in, “In fact, the distribution of limited quota immigration can have no significant effect on the ethnic balance of the United States.”

Yet as the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) wrote in 2015, “[i]n 1965, whites of European descent [constituted] 84 percent of the U.S. population, while [h]ispanics accounted for 4 percent and Asians for less than 1 percent.  Fifty years on, 62 percent of the U.S. population is white, 18 percent is [h]ispanic, and 6 percent is Asian.  By 2065, just 46 percent of the U.S. population will be white, the [h]ispanic share will rise to 24 percent, Asians will [constitute] 14 percent – and the country will be home to 78 million foreign[-]born, according to Pew projections.”

Kennedy again: “Contrary to the charges in some quarters, S.500 will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and economically deprived nations of Africa and Asia.  In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think.”

Since the 1965 act took effect, 85 to 90 percent of our immigrants have hailed from the Third World.  Moreover, the MPI tells us, “Compared to almost entirely European immigration under the national-origins system [prior to ’65], flows since 1965 have been more than half Latin American and one[] quarter Asian.”

Kennedy summed up, saying the charges he was refuting above were “highly emotional, irrational, and with little foundation in fact.  They are out of line with the obligations of responsible citizenship.”

They were actually something else: true.

In fact, it’s hard to imagine a short statement containing more untruths than what the real Lyin’ Ted packed into his immigration bill defense.  It’s not just that he was wrong – it’s that the outcomes were the precise opposite of what he’d promised.  If Kennedy had been a doctor performing a medical procedure, he’d have been sued out of the business.  If he’d been an auto-manufacturer and his pet bill a car model, he’d have had to issue a recall.

So can we finally recall this horrible 1965 immigration act?  Note that even Kennedy tacitly admitted that the act’s ultimate outcomes are undesirable.  He didn’t say, “Flooding the country with one million people per year from economically deprived areas and radically changing the ethnic mix of the U.S. is great.  Let’s do it!”  He passionately claimed that those things wouldn’t happen.

By the way, Kennedy punctuated his prevaricative defense by saying that the charges against the immigration bill “breed hate of our heritage.”  Of course, the balkanization the immigration bill bred is part of the reason our heritage is now so hated.

Speaking of hatred, much is currently directed at President Trump because on Thursday he questioned why we have so much immigration from impoverished nations such as Haiti, as opposed to more newcomers from Norway.  Since this raised many leftists’ ire and with my being the reasonable man I am, I propose a compromise: no immigrants from the Third World or the Old World.  In other words, no immigration, period.

With a population 330 million strong, we have enough people.  With 95 million not in the labor force and robots taking over low-skilled jobs, we don’t need more workers.  With America being balkanized, we don’t need more diversity.  So what does today’s immigration provide?

Oh, yeah – Democrat voters.

Depending on the group, 70 to 90 percent of third-world immigrants vote Democrat after being naturalized.  Leftists don’t in principle love immigrants or immigration, but they do love electoral domination – and importing foreigners to achieve it suits them fine.

In fact, if 70 to 90 percent of third-world immigrants voted GOP, the Democrats would be clamoring to admit those reliably socialistic Norwegians.

DEM Dick Durbin, Saboteur….Not the First Time

S***HOLE OR NO S***HOLE?

by John Hinderaker   at PowerLine

Today on ABC’s This Week, Senator David Perdue, who was present, flatly denied that President Trump referred to any countries as “s***holes” during a meeting with a small group of legislators:

Republican Sen. David Perdue (Ga.) on Sunday said President Trump did not use the word “shithole” to refer to African nations, Haiti and El Salvador during a White House meeting with lawmakers.
***
“I’m telling you he did not use that word, George. And I’m telling you it’s a gross misrepresentation. How many times do you want me to say that?” Perdue said after host George Stephanopoulos pressed him for an answer.
***
“The gross misrepresentation was that language was used in there that was not used and also that the tone of that meeting was not contributory and not constructive,” the Georgia Republican said.

The Hill adds this, seeking to undercut Perdue’s denial:

The White House last week did not deny that Trump made the comment.

That, I think, is just wrong. President Trump tweeted:

Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust.    

Paul made the most relevant point on Friday. Even if you assume Trump used the word that he and Senator Perdue deny, the villain in this story is Dick Durbin:

I don’t know whether President Trump called any countries “s***holes” yesterday. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if he disparaged certain countries, as is his wont, and he may well have done so profanely.

If he did, and if doing so hurt America, then Sen. Durbin and others in the room should have kept Trump’s statement to themselves. No patriotic American would hurt this country’s international standing just to embarrass the president or in the hope of gaining a little leverage in negotiations (which, I’m pretty sure, Durbin has failed to do).

But patriotism has never been Dick Durbin’s long suit.

This story is a good illustration of the bizarre times in which we live. Trump made a good point in a private meeting with a small number of legislators. He may have used profanity while doing so, but he wasn’t making a speech. His political enemy, Dick Durbin, then ran to the press to damage Trump by quoting–probably misquoting–his private comments. The press jumped on the story eagerly, assuming Durbin’s account was correct and happily damaging America’s interests, as Democrats and Democratic reporters smugly told us was happening. Lost in the shuffle was the fact that Trump is right about immigration–chain migration and the lottery are crazy and need to go, in favor of a merit-based system–and a large majority of Americans agree with him.

Years ago, some of the lawyers in my office had a series of cases around the country in which they were opposed by another Twin Cities law firm. The lawyers in that law firm were so dishonest, and so given to misrepresenting their conversations with my partners in various courts, that eventually my partners refused to have any telephone conversations with them unless a court reporter was on the line, and a transcript was prepared. President Trump is perhaps at the point where he should take similar measures to prevent Democrats (and perhaps some Republicans) from lying about his conversations with him.

Bill Kristol….A Champion Judas of Today’s Democratic America

Follow the American  Brat our conservative  Judas Bill Kristol, as he bullies his noise entertaining the nations neofascists :

 

Why Do Leftists Flunk Science?

Today’s American noisiest Leftists are collectively  overwhelmingly feminists, especially the angry ditsy male haters, mobish racist blacks, illegal immigrants, devoted fascists, anarchists, and anti- JudeoChristian Jews.

Most are feminized indoor people printing  their hate signs, organizing their  hates and dates to cause America trouble especially at the nation’s  schools, universities, and in the courts,  the streets and parks.

Rip off at the Wall Street Journal

The HATE TRUMP WALL STREET JOURNAL

I haven’t monkeyed with the Stock Market since its collapse in 2007 I think it was.   I have never liked things Wall Street.  It’s a world that doesn’t give a damn about cultural freedom, private enterprise, and   free people.   It has destroyed much of our American middle class by destroying free enterprise by selling global profits for the rich.

In my lifetime where I lived here in Minnesota’s Twin Cities, Negro Americans in the North, if not  the segregated South, owned  nearly all of the corner shoe shops, grocery stores, tailor shops, liquor stores, bakeries,  bars, barber shops, dime stores, and such in the communities where they lived.  (I’m not sure about drugstores!)

Big Business’s “private enterprise” of corporate America destroyed all of that by  the 1990s.

Children had mothers and fathers.   Nearly every family went to Church on Sundays! ……..and no one cursed in school or in public!   (Until about 1950 ladies usually wore spiffy clothing and hats with veils when they went downtown to shop.)

Big Business,  Big Left, and Big University destroyed all of that by the turn of the century.  Americans got fatter big time, slobbier of dress and language, and more ignorant of knowledge ever since.   Feminism and fascism began to replace Americana……and more recently black racism and California’s Sanctuary State.

During this collapse of America the civilized, I became a Reagan Republican after a quarter century of voting and volunteering for the once  civilized Hubert Humphrey Democrat Party.   Being male, not female, I was and still am, a devotee of freedom, truth,  free enterprise, and especially  schooling based upon seeking truth through knowledge, a concept quite obtuse among today’s fascist Dem feminists.

Newspapers began to fall apart both in truth-telling, number of independents,  and size.   As in Communist Soviet Union, leftists infiltrated to sell their poisons.  In our Trump time, communication in our America is overwhelmingly One Party Leftism led by the overwhelming majority of Democrats and about only 2/3rds of the Wall Street Journal editors……Collectively, they all hate Our America’s 45th President, Donald J. Trump.

A human creep, noted leftist Michael Wolff of pen and greed, “was allowed to lurk around the White House for something like six months, presumably because someone in the first days of Donald Trump’s administration thought he would write a sympathetic account.”…….according to Barton Swaim in his Bookshelf article, “The Hour of the Wolff” in today’s Wall Street Journal.  He writes, “in one sense, Fire and Fury is a typical piece of “access journalism” as it’s known, like many titles by Bob Woodward or, on the more gossipy side, like the “Game Change” books by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.   Mr. Wolff takes the genre to another level, and perhaps a lower level.  If he has employed objective criteria for deciding what to include or exclude, it’s no clear what those criteria are.  By  the looks of it, he included any story, so long as it was juicy.  We’re told, for instance, of Mr. Trump’s  supposed method of bedding other men’s wives in his prepresidential days…..” and so on……

Swaim repeats the lists of garbage Wolff scatters like Spring seed to remind Trump haters the lists of evils the President is supposed to have committed ala the Jeb Bush family and others.

I started reading newspapers that June of the Battle of Midway.   I was seriously dyslexic, but back then no one knew what that was.  I couldn’t read novels beyond two paragraphs, but  I could already read newspapers, especially the war headlines, maps, photos,  cutlines and even articles of the St. Paul Pioneer Press  Sunday  rotogravure sections covering the war.   I remember  bombing my toy ships with my Christmas present  B-24  in the our  half acre Victory Garden across the alley I was in charge of.  Two cousins had  already joined the Navy.   I knew they were in the Pacific front somewhere.

After the war when I entered college,  I learned that President Roosevelt had enjoyed the comfort of a mistress rather than with Eleanor, the mother of his several children.  He and she were wealthy, very wealthy, and from New York.  In April of 1945, he died in her arms….or something close to that…as it was never announced for public interest until decades later.   Apparently, among the Roosevelt class, Democrat and Republican, except for Hollywood folks as today,  such male behavior was taboo.  Only very, very wealthy, usually well known gals, would fly off to Reno for a divorce.

Where I lived in St. Paul  from age two in  1936 to 1954, of the 28 families living on both sides  of the street, all but two households had children still at home….about 30 altogether.   Twenty eight  were practicing Christian families;  two Jewish.

No one swore in public.   No one swore beyond “darn” whether at home or in public.   (I went to a mixed white-Negro high school from grade nine to graduation as a senior.  Swearing in public was unheard of at that school or on its grounds.

Folks respected a concept of God, of goodness, then.   We lived in  a neighborhood.

Barton Swaim’s article would never have hit the streets including  the news stands.

Republicans, news folks of any Party, a reporter from any newspaper,  couldn’t, didn’t bribe Franklin Delano Roosevelt or anyone else for “infidelities”.   The country was “God-fearing” then.

To what length did Republicans attack John F. Kennedy for this weekly sessions with Mafioso females for “pain relief”?   And he was civilized unlike so many, if not all Democrats in Congress today!

 

 

 

 

 

The PIRANHA, MICHAEL WOLFF

Michael Wolff, From Local Media Scourge to National Newsmaker

by Michael M. Grynbaum  at the New York Times:

“Michael Wolff has, for years, been a prime piranha in the Manhattan media pond, using his caustic columns to tear into his lunchmates at Michael’s, the Midtown mogul canteen, and cutting a memorable figure at star-speckled dinner parties, clad in Charvet ties and shirts by the London haberdashery Browns.

His arsenic-laced prose was well known among powerful figures like Rupert Murdoch, whose life Mr. Wolff chronicled in a 2008 biography that left its subject displeased. But his nose for first-class gossip kept the machers circling.

Now, the Wolff formula has been applied to a far bigger canvas: presidential politics. It is proving to be his most successful provocation to date.

“Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” his insider account of the year he spent reporting from the West Wing, has drawn denunciations from the White House lectern, threatened the career of the Breitbart News leader Stephen K. Bannon and turned Mr. Wolff, an overnight sensation at age 64, into one of the world’s most famous journalists.

On Thursday, Mr. Trump’s lawyers threatened to sue Mr. Wolff’s publisher, Henry Holt, if it did not halt the book’s release and apologize for its contents — an extraordinary attempt by a sitting president to stifle critical coverage. Henry Holt responded by moving up the book’s release by four days. Mr. Wolff may be looking at his first No. 1 best seller.

 

Even for the brazenly confident Mr. Wolff, a status-mad needler with a habit of being ejected from expensive restaurants, this is a new level of notoriety. He is accustomed to angering the Manhattan power elite, not the leader of the free world. “It’s almost a natural evolution of Michael Wolff, that one day the president would be talking about him from the White House,” said Janice Min, the former editor of The Hollywood Reporter, where Mr. Wolff is a columnist.

His acidic portrayal of Mr. Trump as a president in over his head, disdained by aides who are astounded by his lack of fitness for the job, has dominated headlines and social media for days, along with his purportedly verbatim quotes from figures like Mr. Bannon and Mr. Murdoch dismissing Mr. Trump as a fool.

But Mr. Wolff has picked up as many foes as fans during his years as a slashing columnist — perhaps more, even — and critics have raised questions about the veracity of his reporting, saying that he has a history of being casual with his facts.

“Historically, one of the problems with Wolff’s omniscience is that while he may know all, he gets some of it wrong,” David Carr, the late New York Times media columnist, wrote in 2008, reviewing a Wolff book that, he pointed out, contained errors.

The excerpts from “Fire and Fury” that appeared this week have been raked over for mistakes. Mr. Wolff writes that CNN reported on Mr. Trump being accused of an exotic sexual practice with prostitutes in an intelligence dossier; in fact, BuzzFeed News reported those details. He also describes Mr. Trump as being unaware of the identity of John Boehner, the former Republican House speaker; in fact, the pair had golfed together long before Mr. Wolff began visiting the White House.

Other details have been disputed. Thomas Barrack Jr., a close Trump friend, denied that he said the president was “not only crazy, he’s stupid,” as Mr. Wolff reports. On Thursday, the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said the book contained “mistake, after mistake, after mistake.”

Mr. Wolff, who declined to be interviewed for this article, stands by his reporting. And his publisher is apparently undaunted by the president’s threats. “We see ‘Fire and Fury’ as an extraordinary contribution to our national discourse, and are proceeding with the publication of the book,” Henry Holt said in a statement on Thursday.

Mr. Bannon has not disputed his quotes in the book, even as the material has damaged him politically and perhaps professionally: Several Republican politicians have distanced themselves from him, and one of his key financial backers, the hedge fund heiress Rebekah Mercer, a funder of Breitbart, said on Thursday that she did not support his statements.

Ms. Min wrote on Twitter that she attended a dinner party that Mr. Wolff describes in detail, including a verbatim conversation between Mr. Bannon and Roger Ailes, the now-deceased former chairman of Fox News.

In a telephone interview on Thursday, she added, “People sometimes don’t like what he says, but I think one of the things that’s unnerving about Michael is he’s loyal only to the story.” Of her own collaborations with Mr. Wolff, she added, “nobody ever disputed the facts that were included on a piece.”

Raised in the New Jersey suburbs, the son of an advertising executive (his father) and a newspaper reporter (his mother), Mr. Wolff entered journalism early, as a copy boy for The New York Times. (He would later skewer The Times, along with other mainstream news organizations, as stolid and biased.) He has been a columnist and a media executive, writing a memoir about his time running a failed internet start-up, and once trying to purchase New York magazine with partners including Harvey Weinstein.

His friends say he relishes a scrap. Ms. Min recalled him grinning broadly after a party, telling her, “Everywhere I turned was someone who hated me.”

Sometimes, the spotlight has found Mr. Wolff, who became a running character on gossip websites and the city’s tabloids. His personal life caused a minor scandal after a late-life divorce, amid a relationship with a writer about 30 years his junior. (He and the writer, Victoria Floethe, now have a 2-year-old daughter.)

Mr. Wolff also became friendly with Mr. Trump, making a cameo in a pilot that never aired for a Trump-branded reality-TV project, “Trump Town Girls,” which involved beauty contestants selling real estate. After the election, he secured Mr. Trump’s trust, in part, by relentlessly criticizing other reporters’ coverage of the president-elect.

Soon, Mr. Wolff was spending days at the Hay-Adams hotel in Washington, a block from the White House, where he was routinely spotted walking into the West Wing. He dined with Trump aides at the nearby Bombay Club. His book, he writes in an author’s note, is based on about 200 interviews, including at least one conversation with the president.

“Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue,” Mr. Wolff writes. “Those conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of this book.”

Graydon Carter, Mr. Wolff’s former editor at Vanity Fair, wrote in an email that he was not surprised Mr. Wolff “would write an entertaining book.”

“The mystery,” Mr. Carter added, “is why the White House allowed him in the door.”

The Fascism of today’s American Press

Fascism:  any movement, tendency, or ideology that favors dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, repression of all opposition.

Accordingly, name one relatively  well read American  news publication that doesn’t hammer President Donald J. Trump nearly every issue!

The overwhelming majority of national “news” from  newspapers in America today is sold by college-crippled  leftist  professionals from  three fascistic national  American   Obamaling loving,  Soviet-like ‘journals’…… The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times.

Nearly all of major American television sources from coast to coast  also sell only  college-crippled, Obamaling loving, fascistic Soviet-like,   one Party politics whether news telling or “humor” whether news or for laughs.

Nearly all of our America’s educational institutions have also  become fascistic screamers and atheist preachers “religiously” selling leftism, antiAmericanism,  projecting their anti-truths to destroy the truths of  present and past.   In addition they  sell the arrival of twenty million foreigners, nearly all unlearned,  unskilled, to vote whether legal or not, to secure one Party  fascistic control of our already weakened and poorly educated America already owned in their Sanctuary Cities and Sanctuary California, Oregon, and Washington to be…. where the know-better Hillary  “Democrat” neoStalinists can dictate One Party  life at every  level “for the good of the country”.

Our courageous, bright, skilled problem solver, totally American, skilled  builder  President Donald J. Trump, has had to endure leftism’s   poison  and evil from  every Obamaling fascism’s corner in America, about 99% Democrat Party and 30 % Romney type Republican Party aristocrats who apparently  went to school or college to study  how they can best learn to hate honesty, forthrightness, courage,  and white males in four years or less.   Fasicism needs them!
