Alert – Cuomo targeting prolife senator

NEW YORK ACTION ALERT:

Some very bad news for New York’s women and children and ALL of New York.

It looks like Governor Cuomo has grown impatient with Brooklyn pro-life Democrat Senator Simcha Felder and his refusal to join the Senate Democrat Conference and reports are saying they will seek to unseat Sen. Felder this fall.

If that happens the entire legislature will be tipped in favor of the pro-aborts and Cuomo’s ‘progressive’ social agenda

This is a battle to gear up for. Pray saints and put action to that prayer.

State Dems Look To Fuel Felder Primary Opponent

CPPAC 2014 Albany NY: Speech by Ayesha Kreutz: Cultural Confidence, Campaigning & Conservatism

FDFNYSiteHeader-806x243
I started thinking about all the solutions to the problems in America that we come up with but that go no where because, too often, our society fails to execute good solutions simply because it doesn’t actually understand the problems. Then, a while back, on the last page of National Review On Dead Tree, Mark Steyn had a column called “Sharia’s Protector.”  In it, Mark Steyn reprised a story, one he’s recounted numerous times in the last decade, on Sir Charles Napier of Great Britain. During colonial times, General Napier was working in British-occupied India, and he was being told about Sutee. This is a Hindu custom where, upon the death of a man, his widow is then burned upon his funeral pyre. In response to the question of whether this will happen while he was in charge, General Napier didn’t get all multiculturally squishy and ask if he can witness this great tradition as if he were on some cultural exchange program.
In Mark Steyn’s words, General Napier instead responded: “You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: When men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours.”
These days, this is what we have too little of: Cultural confidence. Without the confidence in our culture, we will loose it. And that is what is happening on a daily basis. We are losing our great American culture because those who’d destroy America are now teaching our children, and now we are going to further federalize this indoctrination system by implementing Common Core.  Our government is purposely teaching America’s children that America was founded by evil people and that it is indeed evil as a result.  Liberals always sing “The children are our future.”  What kind of future are these children going to allow us to have after they’ve been taught to hate us?
On the other hand, we’ve heard all our lives that America is the greatest country in the world. Well, which is it? If America is the greatest, then wouldn’t that suggest that our culture is the greatest as well? – In the words of Sarah Palin, “You betcha.”
971262_581459778551456_285255742_n
And that’s where the Frederick Douglass Foundation comes in. We aren’t infected with the multi-culti tendency to pretend other cultures are better than that of America’s and thus allow our own culture to be watered down and soaked in shame over some of the bad things that happened in history. Bad things happen. Our goal is to edify, educate, agitate and empower people.
But let’s consider the left’s method of bringing down America. The Left runs the Democrat Party today, and has no doubt infiltrated the Republican Party, just as the liberals have infected the church. It’s no secret to any of us that liberal/progressives are trying to destroy America in just about every way. They’re coming at us from 360 different directions, 24-7. It is up to us to Stand on the truth of God’s Word in our dilligent efforts of taking back our party. The Republican Party has been shamed into cowering and biding its time rather than exhibiting the cultural confidence of General Napier. So it is up to we conservatives: Tea Party Patriots and Libertarians, who are on board the freedom agenda to CONSERVE that which is great about America and its founding. It is Constitutional Conservatism that unites us.
We need to go over the heads of the liberal infiltrated institutions. The Obama Administration is filled with something FDF member Mack Rights calls Bureaucratic Sclerosis – BS for short. If the Bureaucratic tentacles of government actually worked, there’d be no excuse to make them larger, and because of government’s desire to grow, bureaucratic tentacles are created almost always with the knowledge that inevitable failure will be rewarded with largesse. We need to realize this and go over their heads. We need to educate our children outside this insidious governmental system because whole generations are being fed lies upon lies.
So, first I’m going to share with you some foundational principles that you can take to battle in the debate on behalf of conservatism in minority communities.  Then I will help you build a method of outreach that won’t be mocked and ignored but that will be appreciated more than you can imagine.  Too many of the outreach efforts in the inner cities are rebuffed because Republicans have no idea about how to talk with minorities.  The rest are just non-existent because the Republicans ignore the inner city and showing up is half the battle and I mean that literally. I could educate you for an hour just on that subject alone. Anyway,
THE FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES
andreny18congress
The left tries to convince children that The Founding Fathers were evil because they founded a nation on slavery. The Frederick Douglass Foundation teaches how this is incorrect. Slavery existed before the nation did, and it happened to exist here on the land where our nation was founded. Just as Frederick Douglass was born a slave, Thomas Jefferson was born a slaveholder. At the time, the black man was considered property, and his freedom, if he did have it, was fraught with peril. With that in mind, we should give our Founding Fathers some latitude. Upon the issuance of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson, our Founding Fathers had decided to risk their lives, their fortunes and their honors to throw off the colonial yolk of Great Britain. Ending slavery simultaneously would have been a logistical nightmare that would have all but ensured failure in the Revolutionary War to come.
However, many of the Founding Fathers were indeed anti-slavery. They just weren’t in charge of their own nation, which is why we fought a Revolutionary War. Nonetheless, even slaveholder Thomas Jefferson included wording in the Declaration that would establish a set of bedrock principles that would later necessitate the abolition of slavery- that all men are created equal with the God-given inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
President Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican President, would later incorporate these principals in the Gettysburg Address. “Four score and twenty years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”  Five Score years later, Martin Luther King jr would allude to these words again in the lesser known parts of his “I Have Dream Speech.”
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.
A paragraph later.
In a sense we’ve come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Even Martin Luther King, Jr. knew he stood upon the shoulders of great men, and he wasn’t going to ignore that simply because of the color of their skin.  But how often do you hear that portion of the speech?
So while the nation’s founding didn’t perfectly coincide with the new world’s shedding of the sin of slavery, it was indeed founded as a nation that would absolutely need to abolish slavery if it were ever to live up to the principles upon which it was founded. The nation wasn’t founded so the white man could enslave the black man. That was already happening. The nation was actually founded in a way that would necessitate the end of slavery.
But how often do we hear the story told like that? Not very often, I’m sure. And that’s the problem.
democrats-democrats-kkk-racist-political-poster-1278101943
We’ve lost our cultural confidence so much that we are either too afraid to stand up for our nation’s founding or are unable to do so for lack of real historical context- thanks to the left’s takeover of the institutions of course. This is where we come in with program events like David Barton’s American History in Black and White or Seminars to teach you how to systematically engage people who have never heard or considered these truths before.
It’s a chicken and the egg story. America didn’t create slavery with it’s founding, but it did indeed adopt the principles in it’s founding that would later be used to eliminate slavery. How can that founding be considered evil? Keep that in mind when confronted with the left’s arguments for redefining marriage. The meaning of marriage came from God. It existed, like slavery, before the Founding of America. Does using government to destroy the Biblical sacrament of marriage by changing its meaning and thus rendering it meaningless serve society in the same way that eliminating slavery did? Only a leftist liberal/progressive mindset would consider marriage akin to slavery. As a black woman I can tell you this is very offensive.
And now, I want to refer back to the so-called fact that, at our nation’s founding, the black man was considered property. He wasn’t a full human. I understand that the 3-5ths clause was there to keep the pro-slavery vote down because slaveholders were only able to get 3-5ths a vote for every slave they owned instead of a full vote, thus keeping the representation for slaveholding states down. I understand that this was to eventually help the anti-slavery movement defeat the pro-slavery movement democratically. But, when you’re the person only considered 3-5ths, it really doesn’t matter the reason. Just ask those who have been denied personhood in the past, the Jew, the slave, the disabled, Indians or the pre-born child today.
When a man isn’t considered a person but rather property, it is easier for other men to beat, whip, rape, lynch, slaughter and exploit that man. And with that in mind, I want to give a brief overview of one of the things that we at the Frederick Douglass Foundation are working on. We call it the Black Personhood Initiative. We are working with other pro-life organizations to engage inner city pastors throughout the state to help get legislation introduced in New York that would establish personhood at conception. At conception, the DNA blueprint is developed and establishes a unique person. Considering the pre-born baby a person makes it harder to commit abortion on that baby.

This is not about legislatively outlawing abortion. It’s about changing the culture. Once you have enough support and votes to make a constitutional amendment pass it really is not needed anymore. Presently, we have $12,000 worth of

educational commercials running on a daily basis telling the truth about the evil beginnings of the Democrat Party’s institution of abortion in the Rochester area.

While we desire to define all pre-born babies as persons, we call it the Black Personhood Initiative to help draw attention to the racist aspects of abortion. Democrat politicians won’t be able to sign on to this initiative simply because abortion is their most sacred of all of their unholy sacraments, but aren’t you all looking forward to their explanations as to why they won’t sign onto a piece of legislation that defines a black baby as a person? How will those arguments sound in the inner city?
This is the kind of civil rights movement that can help start a good conversation, which can lead into teaching the real history of the Democrat Party in America.
After the black man was freed from slavery, there were still efforts to deny him personhood. The Democrat Party started the KKK to help keep freed blacks in line. We all know that, but we don’t often enough remind our liberal friends that they vote for the party of slavery, segregation, the KKK and now the black genocide of abortion. The liberals never apologize for that, but they love to call us racists. We need the cultural confidence to stand up to anyone calling us a racist. Liberal arguments are weak and fully ignorant of reality.
Share this with your liberal friends when they try to win a debate on the cheap by calling you a racist.
Charles Darwin came up with the theory that we evolved from apes in order to argue that the black man was inferior to the white man because he more resembled the ape from which he supposedly evolved. I don’t care if liberals think they evolved from monkeys. It helps explain why they act like animals. But as for me, I was made in the image of God. The liberals want to teach children that, as one more generation away from the apes, they are superior to their parents. But my children understand that I am one generation closer to the first humans created by God. One generation closer to perfection.
But let me get back to my point. Charles Darwin’s cousin Sir Francis Galton is considered the father of eugenics. Galton made his money by trading slaves, and he used his cousin’s evolution theories to argue for the elimination of the black man from society. The American Eugenics movement spawned Planned Parenthood and the Nazi Death camps. Planned Parenthood was founded to help remove what Margaret Sanger considered “weeds” from society. She was referring to preborn black babies. If they couldn’t kill them on the streets, they’d convince the blacks to kill themselves in the Democrat-Party approved abortion-mill death chambers.  They’d kill that black baby in the womb.
Knowing that Planned Parenthoods are strategically located in the inner cities where they will more successfully pick off minorities, according to the original racist eugenics plan, ask your progressive friends why they never complain that it’s racist when white suburban girls are so often forced to drive to the ghetto to kill their baby? If the Democrats really believed in equal distribution of services, why aren’t they complaining about the lack of abortion mills in white-dominated suburbs? We know the answer, but let the liberal try to figure that one out. Let’s see your liberal friend argue their way out of that one. [What kind of equality is that? If not racist]
Keep this in mind too. The company that made Zyclon-B, the gas that the Nazis used to kill the Jews, also makes RU-486- the chemical abortion pill. Today in America, 1,200 black babies are killed every day in abortion mills.
According to the Tuskeegee Institute, in 86 years, the Democrat Party’s KKK lynched and killed about 3,600 blacks. Today, the Democrat Party’s abortion-mill archipelago kills as many blacks every three days as the KKK killed in 86 years.
In the 40 years since Roe, while blacks represent only 12% of the population, they represent over 35% of all abortions committed in America. It’s much easier to understand why I’m a black Conservative woman when the connection is made between racist motivations behind slavery, segregation, the Democrat Party and abortion.
Like Frederick Douglass, I will not yield to the lefts’ determined efforts to culturally wussify America into a Third World Nation of non-persons devoid of cultural confidence because they allowed their culture to be destroyed, one aspect after another. I refuse to be forced into victimhood and have my motivation stolen by those who’d love nothing more than to skim off the wealth redistributed to me through what they call entitlements. While this method of cultural oppression might not be the same as slavery, it is still oppression.
Keep that in mind during the establishment’s coming efforts to legalize the illegal immigrants.  Corporate America thinks it will be cheaper to import cheap and subsidized labor to replace American jobs than to send those jobs overseas.  The result is the same though.  Americans lose jobs, wages go down, more people become jobless and poor, the Democrats gain voters by handing out government goodies.  The Republicans want the illegal immigrants to work and not vote, while the Democrats want them to vote and not work.  Well, when you can vote your way out of actually having to work, what do you think will happen?  Maybe if the Democrats hadn’t aborted over 55 million babies in the last 40 years, we wouldn’t need foreigners to do the jobs that Americans can’t afford to do at the low wages offered to the illegal-alien slave-wage workforce.  Goes to show you, the battle between good and evil never changes, just the players do.
#####
And that’s what we need to keep in mind when reaching out to those in the inner cities.  First, we need to stop telling them how great tax cuts are.  People live in the inner city because they don’t have enough money not to.  They don’t pay taxes.  Tax cuts are for those who’ve already escaped.  However, we should talk pocketbook politics.  We need to explain why the Democrat Party’s nonsensical faith in the pagan religion of global warming is increasing the costs of diapers, food, gas and heating their homes.  Government-created inflation is the easiest way to raise taxes without having to vote on it.  Ronald Reagan used to remind us that that was Lenin’s argument.
But even more important are cultural issues.
We have become cultural wusses.  People in the inner city are much more culturally conservative than most moderates who are too afraid of those icky conservative pro-lifers.  Their lives are more closely touched by the lack of two-parent homes, people in jail, on drugs, getting AIDS.  They are more personally affected by the Democrat Party’s efforts to destroy the black family by taking away the welfare from black women who get married.  We need to propose a welfare reform that won’t strip welfare recipients of the safety net if they get married.  The Democrats want the women to remain single because single women treat the government like it’s her sugar daddy.  But, if she doesn’t lose the security blanket when getting married, she will more likely take the risk of doing so- the risk of exchanging a government check for that of a man who might not always have a job.  This is better for the kids.  Children who grow up without a father are more likely to end up in jail, get addicted to drugs and to become gang members.  It’s as simple as that.  People in the inner city know this, but the system encourages them to ignore it.  And the Republicans are nowhere to be found, like an absentee father. We need to be the party arguing for a change in the rules for the system.
Right now, the system is less a safety net and more a spider web.
Now it’s true, not all folks in the inner city are culturally conservative, but those who go to church regularly are very much so.  Nonetheless, we’re running out of time.  The generation of black folks who were around when the vast majority of blacks were Republicans is quickly dying off.  We need to encourage them to pass the truth to anyone who will listen.  And a lot of folks in the inner city are much more religious than those outside.  That’s where we can relate, and it’s much better than pretending all we care about is tax cuts.
Furthermore, schools in the inner city are horrendous.  The graduation rates for black boys in Rochester is 9%, and the rate of functional illiteracy of all students who do graduate is around 50%.  We are fast tracking these kids to a life of crime and penitentiaries. Parents care about their kids, they want better for them but see no end or hope in sight, trying to fight the system alone. The blame needs to be placed right at the feet of the Democrat Party and its teachers unions, who have run the education system for the last 30 plus years. We on the other hand are sitting on one of the most slept on and winnable issues, School Choice.  We should be out there fighting for charter schools, homeschooling, vouchers and freedom from unionized institutions.  That’s the plantation, and it’s the Democrats keeping them there.
Furthermore, Republicans have to stop being cowering wimps every time some liberal calls us homophobic or racist or bigots.  
It doesn’t matter what we do, they’re going to call us that regardless.  When some liberal hoity toytie chick calls you a homophobe, your first reaction should be a dismissive laugh.  She’ll be like, “Well, I never.  Listen here you homophobe.  I take myself seriously.  Where do you get off laughing at me?”  Then your response has to be, “Oh, no!  You called me a homophobe.  I’ve never been called that before.”  Then laugh at her again and say: “The term homophobe is the argument every one of you progressives use after realizing that you’ve lost the debate.”  That’ll shut her up and remind her she lost the debate.  The same goes for being called a racist or an Islamophobe.  Don’t let the left use these terms to win a debate on the cheap.  They can’t win without simple arguments used to shut down debate.  In fact, liberals can’t debate anything.  Look at Al Gore.  His unwillingness to debate anyone is not a sign of confidence but an admission that he’s a coward.
It’s time to stand up to these simpletons.  They can’t debate, and like CS Lewis wrote of the devil, “Above all, liberals cannot stand to be mocked.”  Mock em and mock em loud, with the Cultural Confidence of an unashamed American.
And with that, I want to leave you with a bit from Chapter 10 of Frederick Douglass’ first autobiography, Narrative of the Life. Frederick Douglass had defied his master over and over in his pursuit of learning to read and write, and his master finally sent him off to Mr. Covey for a year. Mr. Covey was known for being so abusive that he was able to break slaves for other holders. Six months into his stay, Douglass described his mental state thusly:
“Mr. Covey succeeded in breaking me. I was broken in body, soul, and spirit. My natural elasticity was crushed, my intellect languished, the disposition to read departed, the cheerful spark that lingered about my eye died; the dark night of slavery closed in upon me; and behold a man transformed into a brute!”
Days later, after Frederick made a last-ditch effort at being freed from this crazy oppression, Mr. Covey came to beat Frederick as punishment. Douglass wrote, “As soon as I found what he was up to, I gave a sudden spring, and as I did so, he holding to my legs, I was brought sprawling on the stable floor. Mr. Covey seemed now to think he had me, and could do what he pleased; but at this moment- from whence came the spirit I don’t know- I resolved to fight; and, suiting my action to the resolution, I seized Covey hard by the throat; and as I did so, I rose.”
Frederick and Covey fought for over two hours, but Frederick Douglass had in the end won. He wrote: “The whole six months afterwards, that I spent with Mr. Covey, he never laid the weight of his finger upon me in anger. He would occasionally say, he didn’t want to get hold of me again. ‘No,’ thought I, “you need not; for you will come off worse than you did before.’”
That’s the kind of confidence we need take inspiration from. The left is attacking us from every direction, destroying all of our institutions and the family unit. And too many Republicans refuse to stand up to this onslaught. It is up to us. We are the last holdouts. If we fail to preserve the elements in our Constitution that guarantee us our rights and instead allow the left to interpret these rights as rights of the government to control us, there will be no more freedom. We are already being turned into debt slaves as our government continues to borrow some 40 cents of every dollar it spends. We must not accept the dominance of the Karl Rovian Republican Squish assembly line.
History is on our side, and it is our job to conserve what’s great about America. Trickle Down Government doesn’t preserve freedom. It destroys it.
Thank You. Ayesha Out.

The Costs and Injustices of Illegal Immigration

“The Costs and Injustices of Illegal Immigration”

By Kathleen Quinn Anderson

The Obama administration and leading Republicans and Democrats in Congress are discussing plans for “comprehensive immigration reform.”  What is not being discussed today is the conscious, politically-driven efforts of the Obama administration to get to amnesty for illegal aliens by flagrantly undermining, ignoring, violating and otherwise refusing to enforce existing laws against illegal immigration, as written by Thomas Fitton, President of Judicial Watch.  For a special illegal immigration report, “A Timeline of the Obama Administration’s Four Year-Long Conspiracy to Grant Amnesty to Illegal Aliens by Dismantling Enforcement of Our Laws Against Illegal Immigration” call Judicial Watch (202) 646-5172, or go to www.JudicialWatch.org

This issue causes me to become outraged!  The burdens that the illegal immigrants place on our society are enormous.  Our hard earned tax dollars to the tune of $131,000,000,000 are spent every year to educate, feed, clothe, provide medical coverage and put a roof over their head.  It is a fact that the farmers receive huge subsidies from the Federal Government to build housing for the illegal aliens that they hire.  This alone is extremely discriminatory and absurd when we have 1.6 million homeless people who are U.S. citizens!  I believe that it’s our legal and moral responsibility to provide the essentials for them to live a dignified life; housing, clothing, food, education and health insurance.  The far left and President Obama are moving quickly to legalize the illegal aliens for political purposes, as this is the fastest way to create millions of new voters for President Obama’s Big Government agenda. If the Republican Party caves and agrees to an amnesty bill the 13,000,000+ illegal immigrants will be able to bring their family members into the United States and increase the Latino vote to nearly 30,000,000+ votes for the Democrats, because they want entitlements! I feel a need to bring to our politicians the facts and truths about these immigrants.  They are taking the jobs that our citizens need at a time when our unemployment rate is 7.3% or 23,000,000 unemployed or underemployed, 13% black unemployment, and 40% black teenagers unemployment.  The problem is that the main stream media has been lying to the American people for years by telling us that the ONLY people that will take these low paying jobs are the illegal immigrants.  I have to admit that there was a time when I was a victim of their propaganda and believed their lies.  Passing the immigration reform bill is a slap in the face to the American citizens of this great nation!

After you and I put a roof over their head, they turn around and send the vast majority of their earnings back home to the foreign countries that they came from.  This hurts our economy, as they take our tax dollars and don’t for the most part, turn around and put it back into our economy to help our small businesses thrive.  From where I am sitting, it, in no way, shape or manner makes good business sense for our country!  The late U.S. Secretary of Labor, W. Willard Wirtz, used to tell people that when there is a mismatch of workers and jobs, employers have two choices:  they can adjust the wages offered or they can seek to adjust the work force.  Routinely, he said, they chose the latter.  That this choice always exists is rarely mentioned by employers, who, instead, argue that there is a “labor shortage”, never finishing their thought by adding “at the wages we are willing to pay.”  Once Obamacare kicks in there will be a huge incentive for businesses to hire illegal immigrants over U.S. citizens because they won’t have to pay the $5,000 penalty.  The Republican Party should pass legislation giving priority to American citizens over illegal immigrants when employers are hiring!  In the bill include that the administration enforce the rule of law.  They will need to enforce e-verify and all of the other laws already on the books.  We know that any legislation that the House comes up with that does not include amnesty or a path to citizenship and passes, President Obama will veto it and the Republican Party will be able to use it against them in the 2014 and 2016 elections.  The fact that they refuse to enforce these laws are proof enough that they cannot be trusted!  This being said, how could we ever trust them to enforce the new laws!  Maybe it’s time for the Republican Party to take Albert Einstein’s advice, “You have to learn the rules of the game.  And then you have to play better than anyone else.”  I’m not, by any means, suggesting that the Republicans lie, just that they outsmart the Democrats!

A study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) states that an amnesty program wouldn’t appreciably increase tax revenue and would cost massive amounts in Social Security and public assistance expenses.  An amnesty “would therefore be an accentuation of the already enormous fiscal burden,” the report concludes.  The study’s breakdown of costs on a state-by-state basis shows that in states with the largest number of illegals, the costs of illegal immigration are often greater than current, crippling budget deficits.  In New York State the deficit is billions less than the billions it costs annually for its illegal population.  In 2009 it cost New York taxpayers $9,478,686,489 for illegal aliens.  There are an estimated 750,000 illegal immigrants in New York State.  Balancing the state budget is a no brainer!

As I noted earlier, households headed by illegal aliens imposed more than 113 billion dollars in costs on the Federal Government, but they only paid a few billion in taxes.  Among the largest costs are Medicaid, treatment for the uninsured, food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC and free lunches, the federal prison and court systems and federal aid to schools.  If illegal aliens were given amnesty and began to pay taxes and use services like households headed by legal immigrants with the same education levels, the estimated annual net fiscal deficit would increase dramatically because unskilled immigrants with legal status – what most illegal aliens would become – can access government programs, but still tend to make very modest tax payments.  It is estimated that legalization would increase tax payments by 77%, but average costs would rise by 118%.  Two studies have found that immigrant’s education level is a key determinant of their fiscal impact.  From a purely fiscal point of view, the main problem with legalization is that illegals would, for the most part, become unskilled legal immigrants.  And unskilled legal immigrants create much larger fiscal costs than unskilled illegal aliens.  Legalization will not change the low education levels of illegal aliens or the fact that the American labor market offers very limited opportunities to such workers, whatever their legal status.  Nor will it change the basic fact that the United States like all industrialized Democracies has a well-developed welfare state that provides assistance to low-income workers.  Large fiscal costs are simply an unavoidable outcome of unskilled immigration given the economic and fiscal realities of America today.

As Congress considers the Immigration Reform Bill that the Senate passed in June they need to be reminded that the Schumer/Hoeven/Corker amendment is nearly 1200 pages long and what happened to Obamacare when Congress rushed to pass such unwielding legislation.  Their “border security” amendment to the deal doesn’t require that the border actually be secured, nor does it require any security enhancements before legalization occurs.  This legislation makes the same mistake of the 1986 amnesty – legalization today for the false promise of border security tomorrow.  It will only encourage more illegal immigration and must be stopped.  The Gang of Eight’s bill does not secure the border and gives amnesty to those here illegally.

I believe the most important issue surrounding immigration reform that doesn’t seem to get much, if any attention, but should, is that of national security.  With all of the terrorist attacks that have caused so many deaths and serious injuries to our brothers and sisters, I cannot for the life of me understand why we are not hearing more about national security being in the forefront of the Immigration Reform Bill.

I think that everyone will agree with me that the immigration system is broke and must be fixed.  I strongly urge the Republican Party to focus on and address fixing only the legal immigration system, as 40% of the illegal immigrants that are here are those who have over stayed their Visa’s.  We already have immigration laws set forth by prior elected officials, who, for whatever reason, passed the laws that are presently on record.  Out of respect for them , plus the fact that we still live in a Democratic society, we should enforce these laws and if we don’t like them, then use the means given to us as set forth in the Constitution to  change them, while in the meantime, enforcing them.  I believe that “no one” is above the law and that it’s in the best interest of all Americans for our leaders to set a good example by following the letters of the law, thus deterring corruption in our Federal Government while restoring the trust of the American people in our government once again.

There was a march and rally on the National Mall called DC March for Jobs on July 15th sponsored by the Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA) protesting the immigration reform bill.  Leah Durant from this organization was on The O’Reilly Factor to explain their position on Immigration Reform. She told us that this reform will negatively affect the black communities by taking jobs away and cause the unemployment rate to rise and lower wages for the middle class.  How can this reform be good for Americans?  The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) substantiated these facts when they generated their report!

I feel very strongly that this is the time for the Republican Party and the conservative groups to unite if we want an equal playing field with the Democrats in hopes of changing the direction our country is going in.  One thousand organizations working alone can’t be effective, but together, they can, under God’s guidance and direction, move mountains!  I believe that they have the opportunity to get the votes from the black communities if they would just reach out to them and let them know that they care about  them and will support them.  They already share the social issues that the Republicans stand for ie. oppose same-sex marriage and are Pro-life. All they need from the Republican Party is the promise that they will help them reach their full potential through education, helping them start small businesses and providing assistance during this transition.  Our #1 issue today is JOBS!  We need skilled jobs today, and will need them by the millions over the next 10 years.  The average age of skilled workers in many trades is 54 to 56 years old and soon this senior group will retire.  These jobs are basically anything you have to do with your hands; welding, plumbing, carpenter, construction, electrician, truck driver, etc.  Whether you believe it or not, the majority of these people from the inner cities across our nation do not like their lifestyle and desire a better life, not just for themselves, but for their children and grandchildren.  The Democrats keep giving them free stuff through entitlements to keep them oppressed and totally dependent on them.  We can change that by reaching out to them with sincerity and compassion by educating them for the jobs that will be vacant as the baby boomers retire over the next decade. The Democrats take their votes for granted, so the Republicans need to compete for them.  The Republican Party must reach out to the black communities by visiting them and listening to their concerns in order to provide them the help and support that they need, in exchange for their votes in the upcoming elections in 2014 and 2016!  This is a HUGE opportunity for them and the time to act is NOW!

A filmmaker, Dennis Michael Lynch, produced a documentary entitled, “The Cost of Amnesty: They Come to America II.”  The film goes out of its way to show how bad amnesty is for America and I encourage everyone to view this film.  Dennis believes that everything our fathers fought for is floating away, and I totally agree with him.  You can visit his website at TheyComeToAmerica.com.  Dennis explains every angle of amnesty so that we get a full picture of what the truths of granting illegal immigrants amnesty really means to each and every American citizen!

I want to share with you what my niece, who is a border patrol agent on the Arizona border encounters when she apprehends illegals.  The first words out of their mouths are, “I want to see a judge.  I want my Obama rights!”

Lastly, I just want to say that I am a Catholic and I am being called to help my brothers and sisters in the inner cities to achieve the American Dream and to give them the hope and desire for a better life as promised them as Americans in the Declaration of Independence.  As citizens of this great country, we must never forget what Thomas Jefferson wrote, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Let’s all unite, stand strong and let our voices be heard on Capitol Hill by contacting Congressman John Boehner, Speaker of the House at (202)225-0600 or FAX# (202)225-5117 or by mail: 1011 Longworth H.O.B., Washington DC 20515 and let him know that you don’t want him and the Republican Party to support any immigration reform bill that allows amnesty or a path to citizenship for the illegal immigrants.

Rand Paul Defeated Drone-By Shooting

randpaul-filibuster
(Photo: Charles Dharapak, AP)
 
 

US Senator Rand Paul ( R-KY ) achieved a political impossibility: his filibuster drew support from the ACLU & Code Pink, hardly libertarian or Republican organizations. 

 
Added to the Tea Party and other conservatives ( Republican and otherwise ), this forms a fearsome coalition for would-be presidential contenders.
 
His 12 hour, 52 second filibuster is the 9th longest in Senate history ( pending Senate Historian  confirmation ) and placed the issue I nick named ” drone-by shooting ” of these weapons on our soil against citizens, without trial, on the front burner.
 
This issue united left and right unlike anything in recent memory and revealed that basic safety from the government is something Americans across the ideological spectrum agree upon.
 
Such unity is not only the stuff of taming this administration, but laying the ground work for a 2016 Paul presidential run.
 
I’m sure ambitious Republicans and Democrats are watching this unlikely coalition with some alarm.
 
Senator Marco Rubio joined Senator Paul on the Senate floor, a move observers feel was designed to acknowledge the moment Paul created and book mark himself as an ally- perhaps for his own future presidential campaign use.
 
Whether Americans need fearfully look skyward is something the good senator and Obama will soon discuss.
 
Presently, Rand Paul has defeated drone-by shooting on American soil, at least in the court of public opinion.

New York: Penalty for 11 rounds in a magazine more severe than being repeat child molester

New York: Penalty for 11 rounds in a

magazine more severe than being repeat

child molester (Update)

Common sense gun legislation. Having eight rounds in a 10 round magazine, or having magazines with more than a 10 round capacity in New York will be is defined as criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree; a “Class D Violent Felony.” Wondering what some class E felonies in New York are?

 

Update 2 (Feb. 26. 7 a.m. ET): I have a correction and clarification for readers. If you go to this link, you’ll see that Section 8 of § 265.02 is being amended, excluding eight, nine and 10 round magazines from the definition of a large capacity magazine. There is a new section effective March 16, 2013 that changes the penalty class for possession of eight, nine and 10 round magazines (§ 265.36) to be a Class A Misdemeanor. That said, possession of – for an example – a standard capacity 13-round magazine for a 9mm SIG Sauer P229 or any magazines holding more than 11 rounds is and will be a Class D Violent Felony, even for owners who possessed large capacity magazines prior to Sept. 1994 when possession was grandfathered.)

Feel free to review the text of New York § 265.02, but here is the statute. Scroll to bottom of post for an update.Thanks for all the Facebook Likes … Keep them coming! Note that 265.02 is listed as a class D violent felony.

§ 265.02 Criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree. A person is guilty of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree when: (1) Such person commits the crime of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree as defined in subdivision one, two, three or five of section 265.01, and has been previously convicted of any crime; or (2) Such person possesses any explosive or incendiary bomb, bombshell, firearm silencer, machine-gun or any other firearm or weapon simulating a machine-gun and which is adaptable for such use; or (3) Such person knowingly possesses a machine-gun, firearm, rifle or shotgun which has been defaced for the purpose of concealment or prevention of the detection of a crime or misrepresenting the identity of such machine-gun, firearm, rifle or shotgun; or (5) (i) Such person possesses three or more firearms; or (ii) such person possesses a firearm and has been previously convicted of a felony or a class A misdemeanor defined in this chapter within the five years immediately preceding the commission of the offense and such possession did not take place in the person’s home or place of business; or (6) Such person knowingly possesses any disguised gun; or (7) Such person possesses an assault weapon; or (8) Such person possesses a large capacity ammunition feeding device. Criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree is a class D felony.

Listed below the fold are a few crimes in New York that are class E felonies and A misdemeanors which are one or two arrest levels below a class D felony. You’ll be shocked, but this is part of the game. With the threat of a class D felony, legislators and prosecutors will figure those arrested on the charges will take a misdemeanor pleainstead of going to court to fight. They want to discourage the creation of a Supreme Court test case. The original list seems to have shown up at Northeast Shooters, but I can not be certain. It’s been published elsewhere during the weekend.

Yes, I’ve taken the time to verify every one of them. Click on a link to confirm for yourself. These lawmakers in New York really went all out with the fast-track legislation, and they really hate gun owners. A friend of mine wrote the following:

Feds Admit: Gun Laws won’t Slow Crime

 

2ndamendment

See people, we all know this deep in our hearts and minds. We understand that “Gun Laws” are just stepping stones to enslaving a free people, so the question is: Are those who go along with this unintentionally ignoratnt, well meaning but naive, or know what they are doing but figure they might get to be part of the “elite” powers that be?

A study by the Department of Justice’s research wing, the National Institute of Justice, has the feds admitting that so-called “assault weapons” are not a major contributor to gun crime.

The study also concluded those weapons are not a major factor in deaths caused by firearms, nor would an “assault weapons” ban be effective.

“The existing stock of assault weapons is large, undercutting the effectiveness of bans with exemptions,” it said. “Therefore a complete elimination of assault weapons would not have a large impact on gun homicides.”

The report finds no significant link between “assault weapons” and murders.

“Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to U.S. gun homicides and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence,” the report said.

The document, titled “Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies,” also sees no epidemic of mass shootings.

Law abiding citizens can no longer afford to hope that our elected representatives will act Constitutionally. It is time for everyone to take action to preserve their rights and freedoms.

Unless you agree with this, I suggest you call your state representatives in protest! You can also use congress.org to easily send them emails.

If this gets passed and you are caught with an unregistered firearm you will become a criminal. If you comply, you will be required to pay an annual tax on each firearm in addition to the initial fee required.

Since this is requiring an annual fee for each firearm, I would compare this to a poll tax prohibited under the 24th Amendment by requiring a payment to have access to your Second Amendment rights. This can also be utilized as a vehicle for future confiscation should certain classes of firearms be deemed not acceptable for citizen ownership.

Pass this along to everyone you know who would be adversely affected by this!
