AJ Delgado over at NRO wrote a piece titled “Black Americans: The True Casualties of Amnesty”, and opens it up like this:

One of the sleeper issues surrounding the debate on amnesty for illegal immigrants – an inconvenient one that no proponent of a widespread amnesty wishes to acknowledge – is the devastating effect so-called immigration reform will have on African Americans.

The black unemployment rate is almost 11 percent, far higher than that of any other group profiled by labor statistics. African Americans are disproportionately employed in lower-skilled jobs – the very same jobs immigrants take. As Steven Camarota asked in a recent column, why double immigration when so many people already aren’t working?

The answer is pretty simple, really.  The Democrats want a new underclass of voters.

Black folks are increasingly wandering off the reservation when it comes to supporting Democrats.  Black Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory changed party affiliation last year because he saw that the point of the left is control, and that the left’s promises are all betrayals and failures:

Black folks like Bernadette Lancelin may not have thought through and realized that “White House money” comes from taxpayers, but she knows that her community is being betrayed in favor of illegal aliens.

Black folks like Elaine from Baltimore want to know where they can get asylum:

US Civil Rights Commissioner Peter Kirsanow wrote the Congressional Black Caucus warning of the economic issues:

peter kirsanow

“The obvious question is whether there are sufficient jobs in the low-skilled labor market for both African-Americans and illegal immigrants,” Kirsanow wrote. “The answer is no.”

He referenced a 2008 commission hearing in which witnesses testified that illegal immigration “disproportionately impacts the wages and employment opportunities of African-American” males. Scholars noted that 40% of the 18-point decline in the black employment rate from 1960 to 2000 was due to immigration. He noted that illegal immigrants and blacks “often find themselves in competition for the same jobs.”

He pointed out a host of factors (many influenced or caused by progressive policies) that lead to large numbers of black Americans competing for the same jobs that no-skill/low-skill illegal aliens do.  What I didn’t see him mention is that the illegal alien can operate under the table and save their employer compliance costs for things like minimum wages, workman’s comp or social security – thus an employer can pay an illegal in cash, saving the employer resources, and allowing the illegal alien to unfairly compete in yet another way with American citizens.  And as noted, a large percentage of those poor Americans who are forced out of yet another job are black.

Democrats still have a huge number of black folks voting for them as a block, and they expect it to stay the same.  But the Democrats want new guaranteed voters and cheap labor (and many amoral Republicans want cheap labor, too).  A huge influx of teenagers moved around the country to strategic districts who will be voting Democrat not just next election but in every subsequent election – and they will be voting – that’s why Democrats oppose voter ID laws – that demographic change is how Democrats expect to dominate the nation in one party rule forever (flipping Texas is their most public focus).

Not sure if they’ll declare a thousand-year-reich or a people’s collective immediately afterwards.  Could go either way.

 

From the LA Times:

A U.S. Border Patrol agent can be sued for firing across the border and killing a 15-year-old Mexican boy, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, a decision with potentially broad consequences for the highly charged issue of law enforcement’s use of deadly force along the border.

The decision by a three-judge panel in New Orleans said the allegations in the 2010 shooting of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca, if proven in court, would amount to “an official abuse of power so arbitrary as to shock the conscience.” Because of that, the case can go forward, the judges ruled.

That “15 year old boy” was someone in the employ of a cartel.  Cartels use teenagers because if they get caught, the American judicial system still thinks it’s 1950 and sends them right back because “children are special” or some such mush-brained feel-good nonsense.  This allows cartels to have very effective scouts who can deliver information on operations almost immediately.  They’re treated with kid gloves by the fedgov and they take every advantage of it.  The law treats them as misguided waifs, rather than career criminals – and thus provides criminal organizations with operatives who are immune to the law.

What the story buries is that the “boy” was throwing stones at the agent while the agent was handcuffing another smuggler.  The “boy” was high in a drainage ditch with an angle to exploit plunging fire while the agent was fighting with another alien he was apprehending.

Lawyers in the case say it’s the first time that an appeals court has extended the protections of the U.S. Constitution to a noncitizen on the Mexican side of the U.S. border.

“It’s a huge human rights victory,” said attorney Robert Hilliard, who represents the boy’s family. “It gives you a voice inside a U.S. courtroom. They have to focus on, ‘Did the border agent do something wrong?’”

It’s a “human rights victory” if you call being able to throw stones at federal agents a “human right”.

Border Patrol officials declined to comment on the decision, which reaffirmed the long-standing rule that the agency itself cannot be sued because of the government’s sovereign immunity. The agent, Jesus Mesa Jr., is liable to the suit because his actions went beyond his lawful authority, the judges said.

“No reasonable officer would have understood Agent Mesa’s alleged conduct to be lawful,” they wrote.

EVERY reasonable officer would’ve understood Agent Mesa’s conduct to be lawful.  He was fighting with one alien and getting stones thrown at him by another alien.

This is what happened to one agent down in the Rio Grande Valley a couple years back:

He went to go catch a group of aliens who proceeded to ambush him and throw stones at him and his vehicle.  A chunk of concrete thrown by an alien went through his window and smashed him in the face, incapacitating him.  I don’t know about other injuries, but I know the group was large (numbers I heard were in the 20s), and a motorcycle tire was thrown through the back window of his vehicle as well.

It’s not exactly uncommon, either.

usbp rocking 2

Thing is, a rock is a perfect weapon against US agents.  Hamstrung by racist organizations like The Race with lawyers that exist to target federal agents, an illegal alien can throw a rock, cause harm, and immediately say they were unarmed.  As soon as their projectile is in the air, they can claim they don’t want any trouble.  They can reach for another one and throw it, and they can play the same game over and over.

The very thing they were hired to do was to apprehend illegal aliens breaking into the country – whether simply breaking in or smuggling.  And with this ruling, a federal agent can now be stoned to death or face a lawsuit – or be forced to retreat from doing their job – ever.

“These are not small harassing attacks,” said Shawn Moran, vice president and spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council, referring to the rock-throwing incidents. “They are more like biblical stonings.”

Moran added that agents were now “open to civil liability for doing their job.”

To those in the media, they’re just “kids throwing rocks” and the judges are right and the agent is a maniac who wants to murder honor students.

Some of those people claiming it’s just “kids throwing rocks” would find their perception changes if they were to be pelted with stones and rocks and chunks of concrete in order to get them to understand the actual perception of a “reasonable officer” who’s being rocked.  If Mesa’s lawyer told the judges he was going to throw stones at them for a while in court, and then did so, it would’ve been a 3-0 in favor of Mesa.

Years ago, Der Spiegel wrote about the Seven Phases of Al Qaeda’s plan as related to Jordanian journalist Fouad HusseinLong War Journal wrote about it as well.  Beyond the first few stages, it was expected to be the ramblings of madman terrorist Seif al-Adel.   It seemed the kind of plan that would easily be checked by intervention by the West, led by the US.

A short summary of the seven phases:

1. “The Awakening” - was supposed to have lasted from 2000 to 2003, or more precisely from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington to the fall of Baghdad in 2003. The aim of the attacks of 9/11 was to provoke the US into declaring war on the Islamic world and thereby “awakening” Muslims.

2. “Opening Eyes” – 2003-2006 – the terrorists hope to make the western conspiracy aware of the “Islamic community.” Al Qaeda turns itself into a movement, recruiting and building an army in Iraq and bases in other Arab states.

3. “Arising and Standing Up” – 2007-2010 a focus on Syria with fighting units already built in Syria and Iraq.

4. Destabilization of the Middle East.  2010-2013.  Al Qaeda will bring about the collapse of Arab governments, and AQ will steadily grow in strength.

5, Islamic State/Caliphate declared.  2013-2016.  Weakened western influence will allow for an Islamic State to form.

6. “Total Confrontation” – 2016 on.  The Caliphate will instigate the fight between believers and non-believers.

7. “Definitive Victory” – completed by 2020 with a two-year war.  The rest of the world will be so beaten down by 1.5 billion Muslims that the Caliphate will succeed.

Phase 4 was completed by the “Arab Spring”.  And Phase 5 is now complete, as ISIS has declared an Islamic State.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has reportedly declared the areas it occupies in Iraq and Syria as a new Islamic state, removing Iraq and the Levant from its name and ushering in “a new era of international jihad”.

According to Isis’s chief spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, the declaration of the “restoration of the caliphate” was made after a meeting of the group’s Shura Council. In recent weeks, Isis has captured large areas of western and northern Iraq and for two years has held parts of Syria, imposing a harsh interpretation of Islamic law and in many cases, killing large numbers of opposition Shia Muslims.

Adnani said all jihadist organisations must now offer up their support to Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has been declared Caliph of the new state.

The Long War Journal in 2005 wrote this:

The United States will not allow another Islamic state to fall to al Qaeda’s ideologues. The lesson of September 11 serves as a reminder of what happened when Afghanistan became a sanctuary and de facto al Qaeda state.

The Fifth Phase This will be the point at which an Islamic state, or caliphate, can be declared. The plan is that by this time, between 2013 and 2016, Western influence in the Islamic world will be so reduced and Israel weakened so much, that resistance will not be feared. Al-Qaida hopes that by then the Islamic state will be able to bring about a new world order.

The Long War Journal wasn’t able to forsee Obama or Obama’s retreat from the Middle East.

The Caliphate had smaller plans:

ISIS envisioned boundaries 140611That are now getting bigger:

And those “moderate” Muslim rebels Obama thinks will magically appear to stop the Caliphate?  They’re being crucified:

Meanwhile, some are saying that ISIS is a paper tiger that only accomplishes anything out of fear, and others are saying that ISIS only exists because of Manbearpig.

To borrow from a speech by Lara Logan two years ago:

You’re not listening to what the people who are fighting you say about this fight.  In your arrogance, you think you write the script, but you don’t.

From KRQE News:

ARTESIA, N.M. (KRQE) – An influx of illegal immigrants coming into the United States has the federal government overwhelmed.

They’re so overwhelmed nearly 700 immigrants from drug-ridden Central American countries will soon be housed in New Mexico.

They’ll be staying in fenced barracks set up inside the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia until deportation.

The facility’s three dorms stretch 10 acres and are equipped with bunk beds, play rooms, free phone access, special infant bathrooms and even a grilling area.

FLETC in Artesia is the Border Patrol Academy.  A handful of other agencies train there, but it is dominated by USBP.

That BP video is from 2010 or earlier.  There is no hiring push anymore.  The housing shown in the KRQE story that’s being used by illegals now was built for BP agents around 2006-2008.

And just in case housing illegal aliens at the USBP academy wasn’t enough – this from the El Paso Times:

Any patient who tests positive for a contagious infection or disease, such as tuberculosis, will be immediately quarantined and given the proper medical treatment.

An immigrant will not be authorized for deportation until the virus or disease is no longer contagious.

ICE and the training center will utilize “soft security” for ensuring that immigrants do not try to escape. Agents will only be placed in the hallways near the bathroom entrances and outside of the housing area.

One of ICE’s goals is to have the residents live fairly normal lives without supervision. Children will be encouraged to engage in activities outside and in a large recreation room.

Two barbecue grills and a covered gazebo are built outside of the housing barracks that immigrants can use to relax and cook.

So the illegals who are diseased won’t be deported, but rather kept in the US… and the objective is to make it so illegal alien “residents” can “live fairly normal lives”.

Illegals are given free food, free housing, free medical care, and taking space and resources and time from the law enforcement academy that’s meant to provide for agents to protect the border – good for illegal aliens and bad for the nation’s security all at once.

 

From Politico, a glowing retrospective on what a wonderful angel Eric Holder is and how everyone who questions his actions is racist.  Fast and Furious has been rendered a footnote to the left.

Holder, people close to him say, isn’t much hurt by the criticism over Wall Street, Gitmo, KSM or even the leaks; he remains confident that his decisions ultimately reflected the priorities of his boss. The same cannot be said for the 2012 vote by the GOP-controlled House to hold him in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over emails and documents linked to the Fast & Furious operation—a Justice-led gun sting that resulted in the death of a veteran Border Patrol agent in 2010. The vote was unenforceable. But no other sitting Cabinet member had ever faced a similar rebuke, and it remains the sorest of subjects with Holder.

Holder views the vote as emblematic of Republicans’ disrespect for Obama and himself, and he thinks that race is one, but not the only, factor in their attacks. Two people in his orbit told me he has described appearing before congressional committees as an experience akin to staring at a hostile “wall of Southern men.” (For the record: All of the 22 Republican members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are white, 21 are male and more than half are from Southern or border states).

“It was all about politics and had nothing to do with law enforcement,” insists former Holder spokesman Matt Miller. “They wanted to get his head.”

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata, and hundreds of Mexicans are dead because of Holder’s ATF.

fast and furious 2010 massacre teens

No one has been held accountable for those hundreds of deaths since Holder simply chose to stonewall.  The left said nothing about Fast and Furious until Holder was held in contempt, and then started lying about it and protecting the Obama administration and the “survivor” Attorney General.

Holder is so disgusted with Rep. Darrell Issa, the aggressive California Republican who chairs House Oversight, that aides find it hard to keep Holder sitting still during the necessary prep sessions. Holder often commiserates about his grillings, via text messages and email, with a group of supportive African-American journalists and public figures, including Rev. Al Sharpton; Juan Williams, the NPR commentator turned Fox contributor; former CNN analyst Roland Martin; Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post; NPR’s Michele Norris; and her husband, Broderick Johnson, a White House aide—a cadre that often encourages Holder to push back harder than his more cautious in-house advisers.

Issa, in a 2012 letter to Holder, denied any other motives than “legitimate Congressional inquiry” and accused Holder of stonewalling to prevent a “co-equal branch of government” from performing its “Constitutional duty.” Members of Issa’s committee have shown no signs of backing off either.

This is what Holder sent to the Oversight & Reform committee:

That's not a print of Malevich's "Black Square".

Thousands of pages of redactions with no information.  Lies upon lies upon lies, and Holder is mad because someone dares to hold him accountable for the actions of his department and the coverup he has engaged in.  Holder, a racist, screams “white people!” if someone questions him.  Holder’s feelings are hurt because he was called out for the hundreds of dead Mexicans and two US agents killed by his operation.  Yet the left’s violent ideological blinders only allow them to see Holder’s hurt feelings in a vacuum, as though nothing has happened.

The entire Politico piece can be best summed up with: “Holder is good.  Republicans are racist and hate him for no reason.  Everything else is a lie.”

The facts of the past are entirely rewritten by the left.

Tuesday this week, DC incumbent insider Thad Cochran beat his Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel.  Despite a huge amount of interest in the race and huge amounts of money and work thrown in on both sides and an anti-establishment wave that should’ve pushed McDaniel to victory, Cochran won.  Thad “Did Indecent Things With Animals” Cochran won by calling McDaniel a racist and appealing to Democrats to vote for him in the Republican primary.

One of the notorious fliers, from NRO:

cochran flier mississippi 2014

The second thing that jumped out at me was the same thing that jumped out at Nick Gillespie – it’s a candidate bragging about bringing in “free” stuff taken from taxpayers in other states.  Red state socialism.  The first was of course the race-baiting.

The way this worked is that That Cochran got Democrats to vote in the Republican primary.  In open primary states, voters can vote in whichever primary they like.  The idea being that if you like candidate X from party Y and you’re a member of party A, you can vote for candidate X if you want to, whether because you want that candidate or because you want chaos.  But you can’t then vote for candidate B from party A as well.  You get one vote – not two.  Of course, since these are Democrats we’re talking about, they vote mulitple times.

And that’s where McDaniel’s challenge comes in.

Cochran’s win was by about 6800-6900 votes.

There were a lot of Democrats who voted in the Democrat primary and then turned around and voted again in the Republican primary (via Gateway Pundit).

The left column is the Democrat primary, the right the Republican primary.

cochran democrat voters voted twice 2014

The law lets you vote once.

So far the McDaniel campaign has found over 1000 illegal votes.

And now the McDaniel campaign is being barred from examining voter rolls, despite the law stating that they can.

ms law via gateway pundit42 USC 1974.

And I think this is what they’re getting at for the VRA Section 8:

(i) Public disclosure of voter registration activities

(1) Each State shall maintain for at least 2 years and shall make available for public inspection and, where available, photocopying at a reasonable cost, all records concerning the implementation of programs and activities conducted for the purpose of ensuring the accuracy and currency of official lists of eligible voters, except to the extent that such records relate to a declination to register to vote or to the identity of a voter registration agency through which any particular voter is registered.

So rather than lose to a Tea Party candidate, the establishment candidate Cochran went out, called his opponent racist, pledged to bring home more pork and handout programs – running on food stamps, smears, and “voter suppression” crap – while he got Democrats to vote twice for him.  He’s basically a Democrat already.

Beyond showing the depths to which the entrenched Republican establishment will sink in order to keep the good ol’ boys club exclusive, it also shows the spots of some other politicians.  Unnamed Republican senators are uneasy, while Rand Paul is happy that more people are voting.  Apparently he’s ignoring that they were voting twice, voting illegally, and doing so in order to further some red state socialism spurred on by a lying 41-year incumbent who’s been in Congress or the Senate since 1973.

WTF, Rand.
