DML’s first film is a riveting, non-partisan doc that exposes the true costs both human and financial. It’s a film the open-borders advocates don’t want you to see because it tells both sides of the issue. “Amazing film.” – Andrew Wilkow, THE BLAZE

Hot Air’s Allahpundit and Erika Johnsen have both documented a growing movement to boot Tea Party members of Congress over the next two election cycles. It seems that the business community is behind this conspiracy; horrified over the fact that a rather significant proportion of Republicans in Washington were willing to roll the dice on default. In the aftermath of the government shutdown, which was highly enjoyable, the Republican establishment is striking back.
With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?
Some people respond to this sort of thing with talk of a 3rd party. This is a mistake. We don’t need a 3rd party, we just need to replace the Republican Party with the Tea Party.
For more than two decades, Sigifredo Saldana Iracheta insisted he was a U.S. citizen, repeatedly explaining to immigration officials that he was born to an American father and a Mexican mother in a city just south of the Texas border.
Year after year, the federal government rejected his claims, deporting him at least four times and at one point detaining him for nearly two years as he sought permission to join his wife and three children in South Texas.
In rejecting Saldana’s bid for citizenship, the government sought to apply an old law that cited Article 314 of the Mexican Constitution, which supposedly dealt with legitimizing out-of-wedlock births. But there was a problem: The Mexican Constitution has no such article.
The Administrative Appeals Office also cited Article 130 of the Constitution of Mexico for the same proposition that the Constitution requires that parents be married in order for children to be legitimated. However, Article 130 provides only that marriage is a civil contract, as opposed to a religious one, and says nothing about legitimation or children.
This is almost too outrageous to be believed. The US government has been illegally exiling Americans to Mexico since at least 1978, and inventing non-existent Mexican laws to justify it.
This is one of the most egregious violations of a citizen’s human and constitutional rights I’ve ever heard of. The people responsible for this should not merely be fired, but should spend the rest of their natural lives behind bars.
What irks me the most though, is that the very same federal government responsible for this persecuted Joe Arpaio for the crime of properly enforcing immigration laws and working to deport actual foreign nationals who really are here illegally.
Immigrant-rights activists said Friday morning they are blocking buses in Tucson, Ariz., filled with illegal immigrants who are on their way to be being sentenced to jail and then processed for deportation.
The activists said those on the buses are part of Operation Streamline, which is designed to give illegal immigrants jail sentences before they are deported, as a deterrent to keep them from trying to reenter the country in the future. The activists, though, say the program circumvents due process rights.
Friday’s move was a precursor to more demonstrations next week, when the activists plan to try to shut down the Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Phoenix.
Odds are that most of the people doing this are illegals themselves.
If so, there is a reason they’re doing this in TUCSON.
Had they tried this here in Phoenix, they’d be next in line for deportation.
Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- In 1994, when Arizona started its shall issue concealed carry weapon (CCW) program, there was considerable interest in how many and what types of homicides would be related to the new law.
I started teaching classes for the Arizona CCW permit when it went into effect, and I immediately noticed that my students were well above average in attitude, responsibility, and civility. They always pitched in to assist in setting up where necessary, and their personal checks have always been good.
When the first statistics became available, I eagerly digested the information. One person with a CCW permit had committed a homicide, although not with a concealed weapon. It was a domestic situation, and the perpetrator was a retired police officer.
The question arose, how often do police officers commit homicide compared to concealed carry permit holders? Of the two, which is more common?
It appears that a person is three times safer with a concealed carry permit holder than they are with a police officer.
But remember kids, only police officers and other agents of the state should be able to have guns. They work for the government, and everyone knows that you should always trust the government and people who work for it.
From their mission statement:
The media win elections for the left. It’s not the left’s competence in office; leftists have demonstrated none. It’s not the left’s ideas; leftist ideas have failed everywhere they have been tried. The left wins for one simple reason: leftists control the information distribution system in the United States. And they use that system to pillory conservatives as heartless bigots intent on harming the poor and targeting minorities.
The media must be destroyed where they stand. That is our mission at Truth Revolt. The goal of TruthRevolt is simple: unmask leftists in the media for who they are, destroy their credibility with the American public, and devastate their funding bases.
TruthRevolt focuses on high-profile media members, and holding them accountable. But TruthRevolt does not stop there. TruthRevolt understands that all politics is local, and therefore looks to fight leftist propaganda at the local level, monitoring local newspapers, television and radio. TruthRevolt also seeks to stop the left dead in its tracks when it comes to training the next generation, our college campuses.
TruthRevolt works to make advertisers and funders aware of the leftist propaganda they sponsor – and bringing social consequences to bear to create pressure on such advertisers and funders.
This will get personal. This will get rough. We’re ready for action.
We need your help, and we want you to get involved — not just by giving money, but by becoming a TruthRevolt fighter. See our “Join the Fight” page to learn how you can help.
Their first target? Everyone’s favorite race hustler, demagogue, and agitator for tribal hatred, Al Sharpton
A man wielding scissors stabbed and slashed a 1-year-old boy, his father and three other people in a series of random attacks in less than 10 minutes along a popular running and biking path on Manhattan’s Upper West Side Tuesday morning.
One of the women, 36, was stabbed in the chest and is in critical condition, law enforcement officials said. A 32-year-old woman was injured in the neck, a 36-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach and the 35-year-old father of the boy was slashed on the chest. The toddler also had a slash wound.
Police have a 43-year-old suspect in custody who is described as a homeless man from Texas suffering from psychological problems.
I blame the National Rapier Association. If it weren’t for their blood money being spent to buy and intimidate legislators and prevent the passage of Common Sense Blade Control laws, things like this wouldn’t happen.
As things stand now, anyone can walk into any department or discount store and purchase an Assault Utensil, which as everyone knows will turn anyone who holds it into a crazed killer.
As criminally stupid and malicious as these examples are, they don’t answer the question of how things came to be this way. How did we end up in a nation where reactionary lunatics were in charge of running our “public” schools?
The answer is that our schools were captured by the left, a process that started with the subversion of our teacher’s colleges to leftist dogma, and was completed with the capture of teacher’s unions by adherents of this same malignant ideology.
The only way to free ourselves of this is to home school, and preferably for home-schoolers to network and establish informal schools for groups of students that operate in direct competition to government schools.
The tools to do this already exist: http://homeschool.meetup.com
A 12-year-old boy was suspended from a Coventry middle school after his parents said he brought a small gun keychain to school.
Joseph Lyssikatos said the keychain was in his backpack at Alan Shawn Feinstein Middle School on Thursday when it fell out. A classmate picked it up and started showing it to other students.
A teacher confiscated it and before Joseph knew it, he was suspended.
I’m just old enough to remember a time when students would drive to school with gun racks on their trucks, often populated.
But that was the 80s.
Today, government schools are places where key fobs in the shape of a gun are grounds for suspension and threats of expulsion.
The older I get, the more convinced I become that my youthful assessment that most school employees are clueless hacks was correct.
