“Minnesotans Against Terrorism” Need Help in Combating BDS!

Ivan Sharon at Minnesotans Against Terrorism sent the following request to help stop the anti-Israel group,  BDS in Minnesota.
What is BDS?   What is it up to?
.
BDS, that is,  Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions,  is an international militant anti-Israeli  movement organized  to gain support to  wipe the state of Israel off everyone’s map in any or every way possible.
During the years of Islamophylic Obamarule here in America, terror has been encouraged to come to the Gopher state in a new foreign form….Islamic fascism supported by activists mingling in Hubert H. Humphrey’s good old DFL.
Ivan Sharon at Minnesotans Against Terrorism sent the following request to help stop this anti-Israel group,  BDS in Minnesota.
 .
Important Action Alert: Help us stop BDS in Minnesota!
The BDS movement is an Anti-Israel movement; it is aggressively pursuing boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel.
Thankfully, a bipartisan coalition of  Minnesota State Senators and Representatives authored pro-Israel bills to stop BDS. This legislation was voted and passed one House Committee last week and now referred to two other Committees (one at the Minnesota Senate and the other at the Minnesota House.) The committees have hearings about the bills this Tuesday and Wednesday.
We need legislators to hear from their constituents to vote in support of these bills. We need your help! We prepared your phone message script which also includes the name of your Senator and the phone number to call to leave a message. It is very important, please call today! It should take you just a minute to leave the message. We also prepared your e-mail, and we can send it for you to your Senator and Representative. Our system will always allow you to preview the e-mail before it sends it.
Make your voice count! It takes less than a minute. Visit www.MinnesotaIsrael.com/stopBDS to see what we prepared for you.

Trump Versus the Borderless (and fascistic) Left

TRUMP VERSUS THE BORDERLESS LEFT

by Seth Barron at City Journal

“President Trump’s flurry of executive orders on sanctuary cities and immigration late last week flummoxed his opponents, who responded by making good on their promise to stage constant protests as part of the “#Resistance.” In New York, progressive politicians have characterized Trump’s relatively modest efforts to impose order on what they have always characterized as a “broken” system as outright Nazism, and have taken their rhetorical cues from hard-Left radicals who seek the dissolution of national borders.

For instance, President Trump announced last Wednesday his intentions to “work within the existing system and framework” in order to enforce current immigration law and pressure so-called “sanctuary cities” to end their policies of noncompliance with federal authority regarding immigration. A few hours later, Bill de Blasio, mayor of the nation’s largest sanctuary city, called a spontaneous press conference to proclaim his administration’s continued dedication to sanctuary policy. “This executive order does not change who we are . . . the stroke of a pen in Washington does not change the people of New York City or our values.”

Mayor de Blasio, echoed by City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and Congressman Joseph Crowley, insisted that Trump’s crackdown on sanctuary cities is a war on difference. Mark-Viverito proclaimed, “Let’s be clear: these proposals are driven by the false narrative that immigrants—all immigrants—are criminals.” When asked by this reporter if he sees any difference between illegal aliens, legal immigrants, and citizens of America generally, Mayor de Blasio was blunt in his response:

I appreciate the ideological bent of your question, but I will answer it very clearly. . . . there has been an attempt to demonize immigrants across the board, that’s what’s happening here. The vast majority of even the undocumented are law-abiding people . . . this has been a systematic—and Steve Bannon is behind this 100 percent—a systematic effort to demonize people of color and immigrants, and it’s playing out today.

From illegal aliens who have committed crimes, to all immigrants, to “people of color” generally: the circle of Trump’s victims widens by orders of magnitude in de Blasio’s fantasy of total persecution. Even to ask a question about whether illegal aliens should be regarded in the same way as legal immigrants betrays an “ideological bent”; on the other hand, it is perfectly straightforward to read a legal challenge to sanctuary cities as all-out race war……”   But, there is more…..below:

Yes, America….Illegals Really Do Vote Democrat and Often

Illegal Aliens Really Do Vote – a Lot

By William Campenni  at American Thinker:

“A warm, sunny Saturday a decade ago, there was a Hispanic festival in our small town, a bedroom community for illegal aliens seeking day labor jobs in the nearby wealthy suburbs. It was a sanctuary city at the time. No problem with the festival itself.  The music was lively and the food tasty.  And don’t the Irish have St. Patrick’s Day, and the Italians Columbus Day?

While wandering around the festivities, I noticed a table with three nice ladies in front of a “Register To Vote” sign.  Curious about its presence at a festival where the bulk of the crowd was either illegal alien day laborers or legal non-citizens, I went over to inquire.  Before I spoke, one of those nice ladies asked me if I was registered to vote.  Wanting to see where this would go, I said no, and asked how to sign up. A voter registration form was thrust in my hands.  The very first item on these forms, in Virginia and the rest of America, was “I am a citizen of the United States of America,” with YES and NO blocks to check.

“Don’t I need to show you some proof of citizenship?” I asked. She replied “no.”  I asked her how she could verify that I wasn’t lying. Sensing she might be on a slippery slope, she called over a supervisor from the Registrar’s Office and told the woman of my concern.  The official told me they never checked citizenship status because I would be penalized if I lied. Really? So I asked her how she would verify my truthfulness, or those of the dozens of new voters being registered that day.  Defensively, she replied that they checked all registrations for accuracy at the Registrar’s Office when they were turned in.

I called the Registrar Monday, and asked if they do indeed verify citizenship status.  I was told that they didn’t unless someone made a specific complaint against an individual applicant.

Forward to our next local election, where the illegal alien presence and an unlawful day labor site were THE issues, I noticed that the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) in their purple tee shirts, and their local spinoffs were canvassing the town.  I followed them for awhile as they went to homes and neighborhoods where the illegal aliens concentrated, and watched them exit each home or apartment with a new handful of voter registrations.

Ten years later, nobody at the Registrar’s Office is checking citizenship…..”  Please read on:

Note:   Why do you think America’s leftist Democrat controlled  cities  have established “sanctuary cities” in the first place?   These leftists are interested in establishing a fascist single party nation, plotted by leftists whites, black racists, fanatic feminists, and Latino immigrant leaders many well organized, some paid by George Soros and other Marxists….others by racists.
Who do you think organizes and finances  these black racist, feminist and Latino anti Trump, anti-American, pro immigrant mass street riots  and school rebellions?
America’s civilized conservative  whites  and blacks are deemed citizens of the past. They are deemed evil  simply for  their skin color being  white, or black and being conservative.
Famed fascist Communist, billionaire , George Soros, is a major financier for today’s black and feminist riots and rebellions of the street and at college.
WAKE UP, AMERICA!

Where Have All the American Babies Gone?

Make America Mate Again

by Stephen Mihm at Bloomberg   at Bloomberg

“Shortly before Christmas, the U.S. Census Bureau put some coal in the nation’s holiday stocking. It released data highlighting a worrisome trend: The population grew a subdued 0.7 percent, the lowest rate of growth since the Great Depression years of 1936 and 1937. Declines in the birthrate and the slowing pace of immigration are to blame.

Ask an economist why this matters, and you’ll get a welter of contradictory answers, as the relationship between population growth and economic expansion is a vexed and controversial subject. But if you sift through the historical data on the subject, it’s hard to deny that the demographic slowdown, should it continue, likely puts a damper on future economic growth.

Declines in the rate of population growth are nothing new. It has been in decline throughout the West for several decades. In some countries in Europe, the rate of growth is below replacement levels: The population, in other words, is set to experience a decline in absolute numbers. But the U.S. has also been on a downward trajectory since the 1990s, though the pace has been less steep. The latest figures for the rate of population growth compare with 1.4 percent in 1994 and more than 2 percent at the height of the baby boom.

If you take the really long view, these declines are nothing more than a continuation — with some episodic, if anomalous, baby booms — of patterns that are two centuries old and counting. After all, birthrates dropped dramatically over the course of the Industrial Revolution in Europe and the U.S. This was particularly true for the middle classes, where declines in fertility were especially pronounced. Unlike farm families, middle-class families living in cities no longer needed as many children, and the demands of industrial society encouraged them to invest more resources — money, time, calories, education — in fewer offspring. ……”    Continue reading below, but if you are expecting more honest answers to where the babies have gone, don’t hold your breath.

When a culture is programmed to believe human males and females are essentially the same in body, strength, purpose, goals, drives, talents, beings, abilities, shapes and sizes, and such, why would a single human adult animal of the normal  bearing age want to hook up with a carbon of  himself or herself?

Why The Obama Effort to Sabotage the New President’s Foreign Policy?

OBAMA ORDERS SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA. BUT WHY NOW?

by John Hinderaker   at PowerLine:

“Today, while on vacation in Hawaii, President Obama announced mild sanctions against Russia, which he attributed to Russia’s alleged meddling in the U.S. presidential election, and also to unspecified harassment of U.S. diplomats. The Associated Press reports:

In a sweeping response to election hacking and other meddlesome behavior, President Barack Obama on Thursday sanctioned Russian intelligence services and their top officials, kicked out 35 Russian officials and closed down two Russian-owned compounds in the U.S.

The press uses the phrase “election hacking” deliberately, I suspect, to convey the false impression that Russia somehow altered vote totals in Donald Trump’s favor. No such claim has been made. “Election hacking” refers to someone’s breaking into the Democratic National Committee’s email system, and possibly into Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails, although the reporting on that intrusion is not clear……”  Please continue reading below:

Retiring California Jewish Boxer Whines about Electoral College

Much Mouth, Less Brain Barbara Boxer, a forever feminist occupier of a California U.S. Senate seat got Electoral College aroused again following the results of last Tuesday’s national elections.    She is launching her drive to abolish the College  as she fades into the Far West sunset  mouth and all.

Boxer: We must end this Electoral College on which I relied to challenge the 2004 election

by Ed Morrissey   at HotAir:

“What happens when a constitutional provision that has existed since the founding of the present American government works as designed? The losers demand an end to it. Outgoing Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer has introduced a bill in the lame-duck session to put an end to the Electoral College, about as threadbare a publicity stunt as, well … her reliance on the Electoral College in another 2004 post-election stunt:

It’s been an extremely divisive election, and a lot of people this year are having trouble accepting the outcome. Some — like California Sen. Barbara Boxer — have argued in the wake of the results that it’s time to get rid of the current system altogether.

The Democrat introduced legislation Tuesday that would abolish the Electoral College and use the popular vote instead to determine the presidency. She has public opinion behind her. According to a 2013 Gallup poll, 63 percent of Americans would get rid of the electoral college.

“This is the only office in the land where you can get more votes and still lose the presidency,” Boxer said in a statement. “The Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to change immediately.”

This is a lame PR stunt for a couple of reasons to which we’ll return in a moment, but it’s also a stunningly hypocritical stance for Barbara Boxer. She infamously challenged Ohio’s slate of electors in January 2005 in an attempt to block (or at least stall) George W. Bush’s formal re-election process. Bush had won the popular vote by over 3 million over John Kerry, but needed Ohio to get over the 270 electors needed to complete his victory in the Electoral College. Boxer claimed that voting irregularities had taken place in Ohio, most of which turned out to be the same kind of “fake news” nonsense that the media has suddenly discovered twelve years later as a threat to the Republic. Boxer wasn’t interested in relying on the popular vote in that case — she explicitly relied on the Electoral College for her challenge…..”   Please continue reading:

Washington Post Lefties Weep and Wail at Trumpie Success

Sadly, Trump’s victory has driven some at the WaPo to the breaking point

by Jazz Shaw  at HotAir:

“It’s been a rough week at the Washington Post, my friends, and it’s almost enough to make you feel sorry for them. After spending nearly every available square inch of fishwrap from early summer until last Monday night attempting to defeat The Donald (rather than reporting on the race) the results of the election seem to have crashed the group consciousness of the WaPo newsroom and editorial board into a seething miasma of regret, remorse, anger and paranoia. The response coming from those hallowed halls of journalism as of this morning doesn’t bode well for their future mental stability either. I was just looking over Monday’s offerings from their staff and there seems to be a theme developing. Let’s glance at just a few of them and see if you can detect a pattern.

Against Trumpian triumphalism
The right wing will claim its victory gives Trump a mandate. It doesn’t.

America the punitive?
Immigration policy can be tough without being cruel.

The Trump administration hasn’t even started yet, and it’s already a fiasco
It’s looking like a mash-up of “Being There” and “American History X.”

Why millions fear the looming Trump presidency
President-elect Donald Trump made promises that represent threats to real lives and livelihoods…..”
