Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Local station WJLA channel 7 is continuing its “Project Immigration” this weekend with a one hour special Sunday evening (June 8th, 7:00 pm). The program will purportedly present an evenhanded overview of the effects of illegal immigration in the greater Washington DC area.

WJLA reporter Andrea McCarren visited Sterling in March to discuss the Honest Business Network (see that story here).

After watching that report, I think WJLA’s team is doing an objective and fair job of reporting on this problem in Northern Virginia. I encourage everyone to watch the program on Sunday. The WJLA press release on Sunday’s program is below the fold.

Well, I’m not the first to think of this, of course.  I hope I won’t be the last.  I hope McCain takes the idea very seriously.

Check out the Outrage of the Week.

What is frightening is that people this stupid are teaching our children.

What an interesting confluence of events.

Just as it is announced that a representative from a third-world kleptrocacy is going to visit Virginia’s Prince William County to investigate the citizens’ efforts to enforce the rule of law regarding illegal aliens, many of whom hail from the kleptrocacy in question, presidential candidate Barack Obama holds a public “rally” in the same jurisdiction.
So how did that go?

The presumptive Democratic nominee drew more than 10,000 people to a late afternoon rally at Nissan Pavilion and spent the morning courting voters in coal country at a town hall meeting in southwest Virginia.

As Virtucon notes, the “10,000″ number is highly questionable. In reality, the actual turnout at the northern Prince William County location was probably barely above 5,000 people.

But granting the benefit of the doubt: Today’s Barack Obama big, “10,000 attendee”, public event in Prince William County was a tad below superstar status. To say the least. Nissan technically can handle 25,000 attendees.

A comparable recent event was POISON / RATT, Date: July 29, 2007 – 8,696 attendees

I think the most recent incarnation of the Four Tops would have been able to exceed 15,000 attendees. And as a matter of fact I will be at Nissan in two days where I strongly believe Tom Petty will just about fill the little arena up.

So the Barack Obama juggernaut is presently at the POISON / RATT level of public acceptance. No small potatoes, I grant you. But Obama is far from a compelling figure in Northern Virginia at this point.

UPDATE: Man would I love to take Barack on a neighborhood tour of Sterling. (More to come in the days ahead – it is related to the above).

It is time to shut it down. Take back the property, cut off U.S. funding, and send them all back to where they came from.

A “UN Official” – whatever the hell that is, presumably someone who has graduated from merely raping children and now also knows how to put on a suit – is planning to visit Prince William county to investigate its efforts to crack down on the the presence of illegal aliens:

Jorge Bustamante, the United Nation’s special rapporteur on migrants’ rights, plans to tour Manassas and Woodbridge, receive briefings on local enforcement measures, and attempt to meet with local officials.

He contacted immigrant leaders in the county two months ago to begin preparing for a visit, saying he was interested in the landmark nature of the county’s actions.

Special rapporteurs are tasked with reviewing human-rights issues of international concern to raise political pressure and shape public opinion, but cannot issue sanctions.

BVBL has a worthwhile take on this issue. Be sure to read it all.

My take is, run the son of a bitch out of town on a rail. Maybe a big reaction from the citizens will catch on in other communities to initiate an effort to defund the useless, corrupt institution.

I have absolutely no comment on this report, for the usual “full disclosure” rationale. Except to say, in terms of emotional maturity, it seems to be working.

A modest proposal indeed, announced on Drudge:

MCCAIN CHALLENGE TO OBAMA: TEN JOINT TOWNHALLS

Wed June 4, 2008 11:56:11 ET

June 4, 2008

The Honorable Barack Obama
Obama for America
P.O. Box 8102
Chicago, Illinois 60680

Dear Senator Obama:

In 1963, Senator Barry Goldwater and President John F. Kennedy agreed to make presidential campaign history by flying together from town to town and debating each other face-to-face on the same stage. In Goldwater’s words, those debates “would have done the country a lot of good.” Unfortunately, with President Kennedy’s untimely death, Americans lost the rare opportunity of witnessing candidates for the highest office in the land discuss civilly and extensively the great issues at stake in the election. What a welcome change it would be were presidential candidates in our time to treat each other and the people they seek to lead with respect and courtesy as they discussed the great issues of the day, without the empty sound bites and media-filtered exchanges that dominate our elections. It is in the spirit of President Kennedy’s and Senator Goldwater’s agreement, in the spirit of the politics of change, and to do our country good, that I invite you to join me in participating in town hall meetings across the country to discuss the most important issues facing Americans. I also suggest we fly together to the first town hall meeting as a symbolically important act embracing the politics of civility, and that in the course of each meeting we smoke no less than 10 (ten) thinly rolled marijuana cigarettes between us so as to ensure the American people have the best opportunity to peer into our respective souls…

Go to Drudge to read the rest.

Some liberties were taken with the quote there at the end, but be that as it may I think the Ten Joint Townhall is a fabulous idea and one which I wish I had thought of. Such a format undoubtedly would have kept Jimmy Carter out of the White House, because Americans could never elect a President they had seen in the fetal position, and would have brought Ross Perot victory in a landslide because he would have had HW Bush and Clinton cowering like freshmen in pledge week. Perot MUST be a total type “A” stoner.

While I would not hazard to predict how the Obama-McCain Ten Jointer will go, my guess is that Obama can’t finish a sentence but hugs McCain and uses the phrase “you’re a good white man” A LOT, while McCain just giggles incessantly while trying to get beyond “My friends … he he he … my friends …”

Depends on what sort of weed they have, of course, but with McCain’s warm ties to Mexico they’ll probably have the really good sh*t.
