Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

A friend saw this taking place today:

The arrests stem from an investigation that began in July after a routine inspection of the resort’s I-9 employment forms. Agents suspected that many employees were using fraudulent documents or stolen identities to get their jobs…

“Companies that use cheap, illegal alien labor as a business model should be on notice that ICE is dramatically enhancing its enforcement efforts against illegal employment schemes.”

About time.

It’s amazing we still see the soft-headed argument that illegal migrants deserve more consideration than legal residents. No one who’s lost their job to cheap, illegal labor, or had their identity stolen, would make that case.

Good to see the feds are stepping up enforcement here.

…or at 86.  The WaPo article says 83, the photo caption says 86.

 In any event, he was a great actor, and a fine representative of the NRA.

For we children of the 60s, history is such a heart-rending thing:

It is 76 years since Cheeta the chimp was plucked from the African jungle to become a Hollywood star in the Tarzan movies. Yet incredibly, he is still going strong…

On Johnny Weissmuller: “Dear old Johnny was more typecast than I was. I remember we were both up for the role of Terry in On the Waterfront and the casting director told Johnny he was wasting his time. I got a callback but it came to nothing. He went off to start a swimming-pool company. Swimming was never my thing.”

Isn’t it amazing, though, all the chimp has seen?

Blog Fu has a great overview of the brewing battle in this western Fairfax County town.

Hard to believe it’s already been two years since Herndon’s voters turned out the pro-illegal town government. This next campaign deserves watching. The town’s liberal intelligentsia still cannot accept the fact they lost the May 2006 election, and long knives will be drawn against the perceived interlopers.

Herndon has accomplished what no other municipality in the U.S. has: Stepped up immigration enforcement at the local level, and a reduction in the illegal population against all odds (meaning, against the efforts of the mainstream media and politically correct local advocacy groups).

Stay tuned, we will be covering the Herndon contest in depth.

The role of Hispanic immigrants in precipitating the mortgage meltdown is obvious. Media outlets have been skirting the subject, presenting individual cases as victims deserving of sympathy.

One such article appeared in the Washington Post, describing the shattered hopes of an Hispanic woman:

‘My House. My Dream. It Was All an Illusion.’

Latina’s Loss in Va. Epitomizes Mortgage Crisis

Despite her poor credit, Honduran immigrant Glenda Ortiz easily got a subprime loan for this Alexandria home, bought in 2005 for $430,000. It was foreclosed on last year….

She looked at only one house and paid too much for it: $430,000 for a run-down, one-story duplex in Alexandria, triple what the house had sold for the year before, and $5,000 more than the asking price, according to real estate records.

She agreed to a high-interest loan that would cost her more than $3,000 a month, more than 70 percent of the $4,200 that she and her husband brought home monthly.

She signed papers in English that she didn’t understand….

The four-page article details how she was duped by other Hispanics, craftier than she was, who used their credit to secure a mortgage for which she was liable.

As many astute NOVA TH readers are already aware, the pro-family champion Ken Cuccinelli announced his campaign for Attorney General this week.  Please head on over to his new Cuccinelli for AG website and sign up to support him as a delegate in 2009!

It seems that talks have begun between Osama-bama and Clinton…..Bill Clinton that is.  With Bore-rock being grilled by the liberal press on some very touchy issues and Hilly starting to regain her popularity and charm, it seems that Bill has been causing alot of trouble in the Obama camp.  Word has it that there has already been 2 private meetings between BJ and Bore-rock.  The discussions alude to how to keep BJ quiet and from doing further harm.  A deal is being made as we speak to allow BJ to have the VP spot with Bore-rock if he will just shut-up about these embarrassing issues in Bore-rocks’ past (and present, it would seem).

When BJ was asked if any of this was true, the only thing he had to say was “I can’t comment at this time but I will tell you that if it were to be, Hillary would bow out of the race to support me as any good wife should.  And Hillary is a damn good wife!”

Now I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t believe Hilly to be just any old fool.  Not when April shows her as being first in this race.  I think that BJ is just one big joke.
