It’s May Day

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 4:52 pm

It’s Illegal Mexican May Day – and the hypocrisy is unbelievable – that’s the subject of today’s Talking Points Memo.

May Day is big for communists.  The Soviets use to parade their tanks, their missiles, their stolen technology in their Red Square to intimidate the Free World. 

This year, advocates for illegal immigrants want to close American cities for May Day to intimidate Congress into absolving illegals of illegality, while singing the ‘Star Spangled   Banner’ in Spanish. 

Mexican law makers issued a declaration in support for the protest, and their sending a delegation to L.A., to show solidarity.  They say they want to end the in humanizing situation in America where people looking for work are treated like criminals.

Now, these are the same law makers who throw illegal aliens in jail in Mexico who don’t  except unskilled immigrants.  They don’t allow foreigners to protest, collect welfare or own prime real-estate.

In Mexico advocates are celebrating ‘Nothing Gringo Day’ – boycotting American Business.  Wal-Mex, the Mexican subsidiary of Wal-Mart, has become the countries biggest employer. 

Brilliant.  Hurt the gringos – your biggest paycheck!

What is incredible is that California Democrats passed a resolution honoring – get this – ‘The Great American Boycott of 2006’ saying that the protest would educate America about immigrants contributions.

Yes, educate you hick, hayseed, xenophobic-racist Americans who have been funding illegal immigrants with your taxes all these years, in yet L.A. school officials not only ordered principals to allow students to walk out, but told them to escort the kids off school property for safety.

You know, Khrushchev promised to burry us.  The Communists failed.  And let me put you liberals on notice:  You won’t burry us either – go a head and try.  You will be the ones six-feet under.

And that’s the memo.

The American Dream

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 2:36 pm

The American Dream is alive and well, despite a new liberal think tank study – that’s the subject of today’s Talking Points memo.

The Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, released a new study understanding mobility in America.  Here is the jest:

America may still think of itself as the land of opportunity, but the chances of living a rags-to-riches life are a lot lower than elsewhere in the world.

This wacko-study, claims that 99% of kids born to poor families will never make it to the wealthiest 5%.  Liberals say in that circumstance: abort them.  Save them the hassle.

Minorities are the hardest hit of course, only 32% of white families remain in poverty, but 63% black families will remain, so abort them too, according to the Left.

You see, the American Dream is a myth.  That is if you buy into the liberal mindset.  America in decline is the liberal central tenet.  In war, they see us defeated.  They say our institutions and intentions are inherently discriminatory and depressive.

Now, President Bush calls this the ‘soft bigotry of low expatiations.’  What it is, is the hard bigotry of liberalism.

For generations, liberals have whipped out achievement ideas.  They except low school standards.  They distain the competitive drive.  They attack and tax individual achievement.  They preach victim-hood.  And they torpedo aspiration.  And yet somehow America survives.

Not only survives, it prospers.  And now they want to convince a prosperous nation that we’re losers.  But their the losers.  And I for one am sick of their stupid studies, trying to convince our kids they have no chance.

People outside America, risk their lives to access – even illegally, the very real rags-to-riches American Dream. 

You want to fail here?  You can.  You want to achieve? In America you can.  Black, white, yellow or purple, unless they abort you.

 And that’s the memo

Letter sent to Senator Frist from a retired border patrol agent

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 12:09 am

This letter sent to Senator Frist from a retired border patrol agent that has more common sense than all the bull being spewed from the Senate,with the exception of a few sensible  representatives.


Dear Senator Frist,
There is a huge amount of propaganda and myths circulating about illegal aliens, particularly illegal Mexican, Salvadorian, Guatemalan and Honduran aliens.

1. Illegal aliens generally do NOT want U.S. citizenship. Americans are very vain thinking that everybody in the world wants to be a U.S. citizen. Mexicans, and other nationalities want to remain citizens of their home countries while obtaining the benefits offered by the United States such as employment, medical care, in-state tuition, government subsidized housing and free education for their offspring. Their main attraction is employment and their loyalty usually remains at home.They want benefits earned and subsidized by middle class Americans. What illegal aliens want are benefits of American residence without paying the price.

2. There are no jobs that Americans won't do. Illegal aliens are doing jobs that Americans can't take and still support their families. Illegal aliens take low wage jobs, live dozens in a single residence home, share expenses and send money to their home country. There are no jobs that Americans won't do for a decent wage.

3. Every person who illegally entered this nation left a home. They are NOT homeless and they are NOT Americans. Some left jobs in their home countries. They come to send money to their real home as evidenced by the more than 20 billion dollars sent out of the country each year by illegal aliens. These illegal aliens knowingly and willfully entered this nation in violation of the law and therefore assumed the risk of detection and deportation. Those who brought their alien children  assumed the responsibility and risk on behalf of their children.

4. Illegal aliens are NOT critical to the economy. Illegal aliens constitute less than 5% of the workforce. However, they reduce wages and benefits for lawful U.S. residents.

5. This is NOT an immigrant nation. There are 280 million native born Amer icans. While it is true that this nation was settled and founded by immigrants (legal immigrants), it is also true that there is not a nation on this planet that was not settled by immigrants at one time or another.

6. The United States is welcoming to legal immigrants. Illegal aliens are not immigrants by definition. The U.S. accepts more lawful immigrants every year than the rest of the world combined.

7. There is no such thing as the "Hispanic vote". Hispanics are white, brown, black and every shade in between. Hispanics are Republicans, Democrats, Anarchists, Communists, Marxists and Independents. The so-called "Hispanic vote" is a myth. Pandering to illegal aliens to get the Hispanic vote is a dead end.

8. Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States. Since 1848 Mexicans have resented the United States. During World War I Mexico allowed German Spies to operate freely in Mexico to spy on the U.S. During World War II Mexico allowed the Axis powers to spy on the U.S. from Mexico. During the Cold War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the U.S. to operate freely.  The attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 was cheered and applauded all across Mexico. Today Mexican school children are taught that the U.S. stole California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. If you don't believe it, check out some Mexican textbooks written for their school children.

9. Although some illegal aliens enter this country for a better life, there are 6 billion people on this planet. At least 1 billion of those live on less than one dollar a day. If wanting a better life is a valid excuse to break the law and sneak into America, then let's allow those one billion to come to America and we'll turn the USA into a Third World nation overnight. Besides, there are 280 million native born Americans who want a better life. I'll bet Bill Gates and Donald Trump want a better life. When will the USA lifeboat be full?  Since when is wanting a better life a good reason to trash another nation?

10. There is a labor shortage in this country. This is a lie. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of American housewives,senior citizens, students, unemployed and underemployed who would gladly take jobs at a decent wage.

11. It is racist to want secure borders. What is racist about wanting secure borders and a secure America? What is racist about not wanting people to sneak into America and steal benefits we have set aside for legal aliens, senior citizens, children and other legal residents? What is it about race that entitles people to violate our laws, steal identities, and take the American Dream without paying the price?

For about four decades American politicians have refused to secure our borders and look after the welfare of middle class Americans. These politicians have been of both parties. A huge debt to American society has resulted. This debt will be satisfied and the interest will be high.

There has already been riots in the streets by illegal aliens and their supporters. There will be more. You, as a politician, have a choice to offend the illegal aliens who have stolen into this country and demanded the rights afforded to U.S. citizens or to offend those of us who are stakeholders in this country. The interest will be steep either way. There will be civil unrest. There will be a reckoning. Do you have the courage to do what is right for America? Or, will you bow to the wants and needs of those who don't even have the right to remain here?
There will be a reckoning. It will come in November of this year,again in 2008 and yet again in 2010.

We will not allow America to be stolen by third world agitators and thieves.

The Bats are flying in the White House

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 1:09 pm

The political forecast for the Republican Party is dark, and bats are hanging from the White House ceiling – that's that subject of today's Talking Points memo.

The bleak outlook is because of three major issues: Iraq, gas prices, and immigration.

The Iraq conflict is simply too confusing. Now in its fourth year, the geo-political strategy of establishing a democratic beachhead in the terror-filled Gulf region is still a jump ball. Will Iraq ever become a free country? Who the heck knows?

But we all know about gas prices. According to a Gallup Poll, 69% of Americans say the rocketing cost of fuel is hurting them every day. Even though President Bush might not be at fault here, he is the coach of team America. And when the fans are angry, the coach usually gets fired. And the fans are angry.

On immigration, the President's position is nuanced. He wants a "guest worker" program, but is hazy about how to secure the border so millions more "guest workers" don't come dashing into this country uninvited.

Unfortunately for Mr. Bush, most Americans are not nuanced about illegal immigration. They don't like it. They want it stopped. After the border is finally secured, many Americans will consider some kind of orderly process to mainstream those who have entered illegally, but not before.

So the President finds himself in an unlit cave with no clear way out. He can bloviate all he wants about the worthiness of Iraq, the pain of high gas prices, and the humane way to deal with illegal immigration, but the folks want some results. Dreaming about ethanol is not going to cut it.

With his administration on the verge of entering Jimmy Carter territory–that is, losing the confidence of the public, President Bush must act boldly. Here's how he can turn things around:

  • Move the National Guard to the southern border to back up the Border Patrol. That would shut down most illegal entries and stunt the rampant drug smuggling. The press would scream, but the President's base would be energized, and his poll numbers would shoot up immediately.
  • In conjunction with the troop movements, the President could then demand Congress pass a "fair worker" program that would provide a "pathway" to citizenship for those illegal aliens who pay a fine and register for proper working credentials. Some conservatives might not like that, but would accept it, knowing troops were helping control the border.
  • Strongly suggest that gas taxes be eliminated or drastically reduced for the good of the country. Remember, it’s not the oil companies that are making a killing, it’s the government with all their taxes imposed on a gallon of gas.  The first $0.89 cents for a gallon of gas is taxes.
  • Stay the course in Iraq. That country's future is now vital to America's future. Whatever it takes, we have to win there. A loss in Iraq gives Iran major power in the Gulf. God help us.

So those are some daring moves the President could make tomorrow. The President might also seriously think about exactly where he is in history. Maybe somebody should tape a picture of Jimmy Carter on his bathroom mirror.

And that's the memo.

ABC News under fire for Prime Time segment

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 1:47 am

To be egregious or not egregious – that the subject of today’s Talking Point’s memo.

In December of 2002, ABC recorded hundreds of hours of video of the Nelson Family in Lake Placid New York.  Now ABC recently aired that footage including this: Kelly Nelson, 14, arguing with her dad, Joe, who lunged at her and punched her five times, while kneeling on her.

So who did ABC News report this to in 2002 when they filmed it?

Nobody.

Prime Time Producer David Sloan, said “I don’t think we did the wrong thing.  We spent a long time on this.  We consulted experts.  We looked at it ourselves.  We looked at the totality and the circumstances, and we didn’t see anything egregious.”

Yea, they consulted experts.  Sloan says that none of these experts said anything about contacting the cops.  But the Lake Placid D.A., thinks the matter should have been brought to the authorities, because ABC shelved the tape for so long that the statute of limitations ran out.

After airing the episode, ABC, put the girl, now 18, on Good Morning America,; where she said she forgave her dad, and asked the network to stop airing the tape. 

And they agreed.

Though viewers were outraged over the taped beating, ABC News wasn’t.  The other media outlets were not.  They don’t see anything egregious when a kid is beaten. 

No, their egregious is saved for terrorists being interrogated.  Not beaten – but humiliated.  At Club Gitmo or Abugrhab.

That’s egregious to the main stream media.  And no, they will never stop showing those pictures.

And that the memo.

The Plight of Mary McCarthy

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 1:56 am

Mary McCarthy, The Washington Post, and the Democratic Party have committed treason – that’s the subject of today’s Talking Points memo.

CIA Intelligence moll, Mary McCarthy was fired for leaking classified information about secret prisons used on the War on Terror to Washington Post reporter Dana Priest.  Ms Priest later won a Pulitzer for it. 

Now this was one of many political motivated leaks to the media (or Drive-by-Media to use a Rush Limbaugh term) about military operations, and programs while we are at war.

McCarthy was Special Assistant to President Clinton, and Senior Director for Intelligence Programs at the Clinton White House.

When George Bush assumed office, McCarthy was held over; later to return to the CIA.  Ms McCarthy is also a Democrat contributor, making a $2,000 contribution donation to John Kerry’s failed campaign.

McCarthy was busted after failing multiple polygraph tests.  This means she lied after being confronted, and kept on lying until finally admitting unauthorized contacts with the media.

Mary McCarthy and The Washington Post,  successfully undermined the Bush Administration, and this countries ability to wage war on our enemies. 

CIA head porter Goth himself said ‘the damage has been very server in our capabilities to carry out our mission to interrogate and detain terrorists in secret.’

Now this leak has nothing to do with Iraq, it’s about our war on al Qaeda terrorists. Democrats say they are all for that.  McCarthy is the forth Clinton National Security figure to assault the Bush Administration after Joe Wilson, Sandy Burger, and Richard Clark, all three of whom she worked.  And McCarthy may not be the last.

What we are dealing with here is a culture of treason.  Inside the CIA.  Inside the media. And yes, inside the Democratic party.

And that’s the memo

Public Sex

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 1:35 pm

The right and wrong of having and viewing sex – that’s the subject of today’s Talking Points memo.

Three kids were expelled from the Baymanet “Middle School” (just call it Junior High like they use to) – its in Alabama. It happened after their teacher noticed their flawlessly executed plan to entertain fellow students.

The three  8th graders slipped a movie in their classroom DVD player, while the teacher was busy grading papers.  They fired up the movie, and classmates are treated to a X-rated feature.  One student objected.  (There is always one malcontented kid that blows it for everybody),  told the teacher what was going on.

The three expelled students; probably at home now doing homework, or watching movies.  Now without a doubt, this incident will follow the students for the rest of their lives.  Part of their permanent record; which is not all bad, because for some places in this country, these kids will be ideal candidates for network television programmers, or public school sex-ed teachers.  Such as San Francisco or New York.

Else where, a female shrink with the Arkansas Correctional Department, has been expelled. Terminated.  For having sex with an inmate.  Her name is not being made public because its still under investigation.  However, a prison spokeswoman says that the 54yearold shrink had sex with the inmate in her office.

Prison official say its illegal for corrections employees to have sex with an inmate, and consent is not a defense.

Now something is wrong with this.  Despite what we have been told, what two consenting adults do behind closed doors isn’t their own business.

And since when can the state tell a woman what she can and can’t do with her own body.  Who consented to that?

And that’s the memo

Illegal Immigration

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 1:35 pm

Crunch time on illegal immigration–that is the subject of this today's Talking Points Memo.

There is a civil war brewing in this country between the forces that want open borders, no restrictions on who enters the USA, and those of us who are demanding that the federal government stop millions of people from illegally entering America. Now, over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of pro-illegal immigrant demonstrators took to the streets of Los Angeles and Denver, saying no to tough enforcement of immigration laws and demanding the USA grant them concessions.

It's clear by this display that millions of Americans support a so-called humane approach to the illegal problem, including amnesty and full benefits for illegals already here.

On the other side are millions of Americans who say no to amnesty and no to the continuing border chaos. Thus, you have a very intense difference of opinion.

Overwhelmingly, the American media favor a "comprehensive approach" to the problem. That means little punitive action. Writing in The New York Times today, far-left columnist Paul Krugman summed that position up: "Basic decency requires that we provide immigrants, once they're here, with essential health care, education for their children, and more."

Krugman and many on the left are big on those carrots, but short on any sticks. They reject tough enforcement of immigration law.

But there is a solution that carries both a stick and a carrot. One, immediately move the National Guard to the border to back up the border patrol. If this is done, there's no need for a $1 billion wall. Illegal crossings would decline drastically.

Two, detain anyone caught trying to cross the border illegally and deport them ASAP. No more catch and release.

Three, inform businesses that hiring illegal workers will lead to expensive fines first time, prison time for employers second time.

Four, allow those illegals already in the USA to register as foreign residents without fear of reprisal. An illegal would have 60 days to do that. Failure to register would be a felony with mandatory prison time.

Five, once the foreign resident is registered, he or she would be issued temporary working papers and would have to pay a $3,000 fine for breaking the immigration law. The money would be deducted from paychecks over a three-year period.

Six, after three years, that foreign resident could apply for citizenship, but such a privilege would not be guaranteed. The applicants would take their place in line behind those who have obeyed the immigration rules.

Seven, a legal guest worker program would be set up to meet the needs of businesses. Foreign countries could send a list of applicants and a pool would be formed.

And finally, any immigrant evading taxes in the USA would be immediately deported. So there you have it. A comprehensive plan to stop the madness, but Congress is not going to do it.

Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved an amendment that would allow Americans to provide care for illegal aliens while adding more border patrol agents. Same old, same old. Not going to solve the problem.

And that's the Memo
