‘Open Borders, Inc.’ a Must-Read

 

A year ago, frustrated with the media’s pathetic coverage of the burgeoning, 7,000-member migrant caravan from Central America to the United States, I posted an intemperate tweet. Long deleted, I asserted that the Open Society Foundations – funded by currency trader, billionaire, and left-wing “philanthropist” George Soros – was behind the caravan.

The left-wing Twitter Mob’s response was quick and ferocious. Reporters, including the New York Times’ Ken Vogel and others from Bloomberg, CNN, and the Washington Post reached out to me. Despite the fact my Twitter account (with a whopping 2,200 followers at the time) was always personal and never affiliated with my employer, it didn’t take much for The Mob to inundate my employer’s senior executives with scores of emails and demands for my head, never mind the fact that I was already halfway out the door as part of a planned retirement.

Status and Statutes of Limitation

 

Barr Omar and EllisonIt is likely that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar got to this country at age 12 as a matter of immigration fraud by her father, got her citizenship at age 17 as a result of her father’s further immigration fraud, and committed immigration fraud herself in a sham marriage to a biological brother who wanted status in this country. AND. None of this, because of the way the laws are written, will likely result in her being stripped of her citizenship or facing any federal charges. What we can and should expect is a high profile public briefing by Attorney General Barr, laying out the facts and the law and, very importantly, tying the facts of this case to the massive fraud perpetrated on American citizens by Somali “refugees.” Attorney General Barr should then tie the massive fraud to our government agencies and to supposedly do-gooder non-governmental organizations, several with Christian churches in their names. In so doing, Barr should also address the way this past fraud has been revived and multiplied at our southern border.

Omar Glad to be an American?

 

Representative Ilhan Omar might finally realize she ought to be glad she’s now an American citizen.

The mere accusation of marital infidelity could have resulted in her being stoned to death in her old country, and news reports have raised the strong possibility the Representative is engaged in an affair with a colleague.

It seemed to me, while recently traveling in the northeastern U.S., that certain alien peoples crowded in certain unprestigious occupations. It seemed that most shuttle-busdrivers were west African, and most caregivers were either South American or ex-Soviet. Like most motel operators being dot-Indian. I got the idea that immigrants don’t mix. They form enclaves, maybe […]

“Avoid dynamic rollover.” But also “Few Turks speak English.” Well, that’s just an observation; within it there is no imperative; I said it only because someone who knows someone who is going to Turkey was asking on the latter’s behalf whether English would be of much use in that country. No. But I felt the […]

David French on Native-Born Ingrates

 

David French has a new article on immigrants.

Immigrant citizens don’t owe a special debt of gratitude of to this nation — a debt over and above the gratitude that native-born citizens should feel for their home country. To be crystal clear, I believe Ilhan Omar and every citizen immigrant should be grateful for their place in this country. What I reject is the notion that native-born citizens like myself can demand a level of gratitude from immigrants beyond what we demand from native-born citizens.

Hungary Knows How to Stop Illegal Immigration

 

The Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orban, has been condemned as an autocrat-in-the making. Since taking power in 2010, he has begun to restrict freedom of the press and freedom of speech. Nevertheless, while he was here on an official visit with President Trump, our President praised him:

‘Viktor Orbán has done a tremendous job in so many different ways,’ Trump said before a private meeting with him in the Oval Office. ‘Probably, like me, a little bit controversial, but that’s okay … You’ve done a good job and you’ve kept your country safe.’

Bush appointees, Judges Sandra Ikuta and Jay Bybee, supporting President Trump and the Clinton appointee, Judge Kim McLane Wardlaw, supporting the California and national Democrats’ position.
