Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

…Obama’s embracement of appeasement.
Obama has a huge anti-gun record.
Obama may not be a Muslim, but every association with religion he has made seems to be outrageously radical!

It’s a long list, go read it all.

Think what you will about Pat, he brings the incisive observations:

With the Iraq War entering its sixth year, the dollar sinking to peso levels, the economy careening into recession, and 12 to 20 million illegal aliens roosting here, Bush alerted us to what really worries him: “I’m troubled by isolationism and protectionism … [and] another ‘ism,’ and that’s nativism. And that’s what happened throughout our history. And probably the most grim reminder of what can happen to America during periods of isolationism and protectionism is what happened in the late—in the ’30s, when we had this America First policy and Smoot-Hawley. And look where it got us…”

From 1924 to 1965, there was indeed little immigration. Does that make Coolidge, Hoover, FDR, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, and Kennedy knuckle-dragging nativists? When JFK took office, we were as united and strong a country as we have ever been. How did we suffer from not having 12 to 20 million illegal aliens here?

In smearing as nativists, protectionists, and isolationists those who wish to stop the invasion, halt the export of factories and jobs to Asia, and stop the unnecessary wars, Bush is attacking the last true conservatives in his party. Which is understandable. For after the judges and tax cuts, what is there about Bush that is conservative? His foreign policy is Wilsonian. His trade policy is pure FDR. His spending is LBJ all the way. His amnesty for illegals is Teddy Kennedy’s policy.

I’ll go on record saying the “judges and tax cuts” were in themselves a pretty major positive contribution to America’s future. These accomplishments of GW Bush cannot simply be written off as side issues to his presidency. Looking ahead to the next president, good judges and tax cuts may be about the best the American people can hope to be accomplished in the next four years, and “good judges” are likely among the key reasons any Americans should choose to vote for the Republican candidate in November.

Add to that “missile defense” and you have almost the whole kit and kaboodle as to why we should hope John McCain wins in November. Obama, like his forebearer Jimmy Carter, wants to disarm us.

We can’t get all we want from our next president. McCain promises to be a disaster on illegal immigration – but so was Bush, and so promises to be Obama. But let’s ensure we protect our country first … and let’s focus on convincing enough of our fellow citizens that illegal immigration is a crisis to get THAT message loudly enough to Washington DC that a McCain administration would be forced to hear the message.

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.
