A government-appointed civil rights commission in Michigan says systemic racism helped to cause the Flint water crisis, according to a report released Friday. The 129-page report does not claim there were any specific violations of state civil rights laws, but says "historical, structural and systemic racism combined with implicit bias" played a role in the problems, which still linger in the city's drinking water almost three years later. "The presence of racial bias in the Flint water crisis isn't much of a surprise to those of us who live here, but the Michigan Civil Rights Commission's affirmation that the emergency manager law disproportionately hurts communities of color is an important reminder of just how bad the policy is," state Sen. Jim Ananich, a Democrat from Flint, said.I don't know the folks on the Michigan Civil Rights Commission, but if they're anything like the ones here in North Carolina, they can sniff out racism ANYWHERE, whether it's there or not. Check out the language they use in their official report: there's no "racist" act or individual named, but no matter: The problem's gotta be "systemic racism." This reminds me of the Charlotte Riots from this past September, when a black cop shot a black thug in a city with a black chief of police in a town with a far-left Democratic mayor. Yet "systemic racism" was the battle cry for the rioters and demonstrators. What more can we do? What reforms are possible if the politics in Charlotte and Flint aren't good enough? I don't know. I really don't know.

Okay, you have a majority-black town with a black mayor that sinks into a serious financial crisis. A black man is appointed "Emergency Manager," and he decides to switch the city's main water supply to the Flint River. Yeah, it's polluted, but look at the money we'll save! But folks got mad when their tap water started poisoning them. So who's to blame? This is a job for the Michigan Civil Rights Commission! You'll never guess where they're pointing their collective finger o' guilt. From CNN:

A reader responds to A day without immigrants: This is nothing new. Between 1991 and 1997 I worked in a state office processing Unemployment Insurance claims. A significant number of claims were filed by mono-lingual Spanish speakers who indicated up front they were not legally in the United States. Because they had no legal right to work, they were ineligible for Unemployment Insurance. But that didn't worry them a bit. They were interested in only one thing; an official document denying eligibility-based benefits that they could take to other government offices for welfare-variety benefits. It made me sick. I contacted my local state representative about it and was told she would like to help but there was nothing she could do. One day the INS showed up at the office and asked me if they could circulate around the lobby and parking lot. I told them they had every right to do so, just like everyone else. When I told the office manager what was happening she almost fainted and immediately called our central office. It was a good day; I understand the INS collared at least one illegal in the parking lot.
This story from the Washington Post raises a lot of troubling questions:
A government social worker for Durham County, N.C., said that the number of Hispanic residents seeking assistance had dropped off rapidly in recent days amid swirling rumors about an ICE checkpoint at a Durham intersection and ICE agents making arrests in a supermarket parking lot. “Today, I haven’t gotten one Hispanic client in the entire check-in today,” said the social worker, a longtime government employee who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. “That never happens … They think that when they come here for assistance, that they’re going to be on some sort of invisible list.”Illegal aliens are not supposed to qualify for welfare. Now it could be argued the Hispanic "clients" who didn't check in with the government social worker were legal immigrants. But then, why would they be afraid to contact a government agency? And what does this say about Hispanics' real reason for coming here?

Ah, brave new world. DC is hell-bound to import as much of Latin America as it can. Here's a hint of the repercussions of letting Latino culture into the US:
It starts early. WUSA9 learned Thursday, gang leaders are recruiting new members in a disturbing place: Elementary Schools. “Oh grade-school. They're recruiting in grade-school but generally 5th grade and on,” said Northern Virginia Regional Task Force Director Jay Lanham. It may feel like they're babies, but 5th grade and on, the time kids are starting to find themselves, has become a prime target age for MS-13 gang recruiting especially, according to Lanham. His team is aiding the investigation into the gang-related murder of 15-year-old Alexandra Reyes-Rivas, the Montgomery County teen found dead in Springfield, Va. this past weekend.Remember this quote from "I'll Take My Stand"? "... and if the present system persists, in another generation nothing will remain of the local color, the diversity, the humanity, the charm of our South, and we will become assimilated outwardly and inwardly to the street gangs of New York and Chicago." Oh, and don't forget the street gangs of San Salvador.

Black Lives Matter was, from day one, a fraud. Its name was an implied jab at Whites who were secretly responsible for all Black misfortunes, as if the shocking Black-on-Black murder rate was the fault of anyone BUT Blacks. Remember how outraged the BLM thugs would get when confronted with the message "All Lives Matter"? Now we know why: Because White lives DO NOT matter:
A co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto argued that white people are “recessive genetic defects” and purportedly mused about how the race could be “wiped out,” according to a post on what appears to be her Facebook page. ... “Whiteness is not humxness,” the statement begins. “infact, white skin is sub-humxn.” The post goes on to present a genetics-based argument centred on melanin and enzyme.Glad we got that out in the open.

Thought the mindless violence that shut down Milo Yiannopoulos at Berkeley was bad? According to Yvette Falarca, the leader of "By Any Means Necessary" -- a name that evokes bloody, ruthless totalitarianism -- that riot was just a warm-up. The barbarism and chaos at Berkeley only whetted the appetite of Attila the Hen. According to Falarca, anyone who doesn't support the leftist agenda is a "fascist," and ANY means that stop the opposition are legitimate. (As the creepy name of her organization makes explicit.) As scary as this interview is, it's worthwhile watching it. At one point, Falarca complains that the "left has been too timid." Yeah. Okay. We've been warned. Keep your powder dry, folks. The left has declared war on the entire Bill of Rights.
The leftist coalition has no coherent set of beliefs, no guiding principles, other than "We hate Western civilization." Infighting is inevitable. So when the Anti-Defamation League condemns prospective DNC chair Keith Ellison for his remarks about Israel, it shouldn't surprise anyone. Want yet another example of how indigestible the coalition of anti-Western Civ multicults really is? Here's a doozy: Mohammed had slaves. For centuries, Muslims ran a brisk business enslaving and selling native Africans. So if the founder of Islam held slaves, the condemnation of all slave holders is nothing more than "Islamophobia." It's going to be a real hoot watching leftists try to square the circle they've trapped themselves into. Ya gotta love it!

“The whole reason we’re here is for free speech. Milo’s hate speech is not allowed here. When it’s hate speech, our free speech is to shut him down.” - UC Berkeley sophomore Jonathan Gow, defending the rioters who shut down Milo Yiannopoulos’ talk at Berkeley. Wow.
The left lost the intellectual battle when the Soviet Union collapsed. And the ongoing failures of socialist governments in South America underscore how unrealistic the leftist agenda really is. Little wonder that violence remains the left's only recourse. If you can't convince people through argument or by pointing to success stories, you have to terrorize them into submission. This process has been accelerating recently (see here and here, for example). So this report on a group that wants to train supporters to attack conservatives reveals how deranged and dangerous the left really is:
“In response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinxs, Immigrants, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis, Knights for Socialism has decided to host a series of self-defense clinics for anyone that wants to learn how to BASH THE FASH."It's almost funny how these delusional ideologues act like Nazis while accusing their victims of being Nazis.
This review of Charles Beard's "American Foreign Policy in the Making, 1932-1940" exposes the unrelenting campaign of lies and subterfuge FDR orchestrated to move the country toward socialism and perpetual war. Fact-filled, well-written, and sobering. It says much about how we got into the mess we're in today.

Once again, we see uncontrolled immigration working as a solvent dissolving what's left of the DC Empire. Mohamed's justification for nullifying federal immigration law in Prospect Park, New Jersey, is so loopy, it'll give you a bad case of vertigo:
Watch for the political stock of Mohamed Khairullah, the Syrian-born Mayor of Prospect Park, to rise in Democratic circles after he signed an executive order on Friday that declared the Passaic County borough of 5,865 a sanctuary for immigrants. Hailing from Aleppo, which has become synonymous with the worst violence of the long Syrian civil war and has thus created tens of thousands of refugees, Khairullah immigrated to the United States in 1991, was elected Councilman in 2001, and has been the Mayor since 2006. According to the order, “No department, committee, agency, commission, officer or employee of the Borough of Prospect Park shall use any Borough funds or resources to assist in the enforcement of Federal Immigration Law.” Khairullah directly refers to his own past in explaining why he signed the order: “It is important to me as a person who came to the U.S as an immigrant, that we uphold our laws and values,” he said Saturday, according to NJ.com. “The U.S is the land of opportunity and dreams for many people all over the world.”Catch that? In order to uphold "our laws," Mohamed intends to nullify existing federal immigration law. His basis for taking this action is that it upholds certain "values" that apparently only he understands. Amazing. As different states and regions reject national law, the end result will be political secession. This is a perfect illustration how the words "diversity" and "divisive" share the same root.
New York Times:
In a motion filed shortly before the trial began in December, Mr. Roof’s lawyers asked for special scheduling accommodations like shortened court days and frequent breaks. That motion cited findings by Dr. James C. Ballenger, the court-appointed psychiatrist who evaluated Mr. Roof in jail in mid-November, that he “suffers from Social Anxiety Disorder, a Mixed Substance Abuse Disorder, a Schizoid Personality Disorder, depression by history, and a possible Autistic Spectrum Disorder.”Wait -- Dylan Roof was schizoid? I thought he was a perfectly normal kid who was forced to kill people after Confederate monuments sent mind control waves into his brain. I don't know what to believe any more.

You already knew leftists hate humanity. But did you realize they were this insensitive toward human life?
Protesters decrying President Donald Trump’s two-week-old administration prevented an ambulance carrying a “critically ill” patient from getting to Yale-New Haven hospital during a protest Saturday in New Haven, Connecticut. Roughly 200 demonstrators marched to Route 34 around 5 p.m. carrying a banner emblazoned with the words “No Ban No Wall New Haven,” they blocked traffic on the highway the ambulance was taking. The protesters “obstructed an ambulance carrying a critically ill patient,” the state police report read, according to the New Haven Independent. “Due to this delay, ambulance personnel were required to perform an emergency medical procedure in the ambulance instead of at the hospital.”Many eggs will be cracked to make the globalist, multicultural omelet.

Think I'm joking? Consider this panel discussion on "racial inequality" from Wednesday. From the Charlotte Observer:
The panel discussion Wednesday night at Covenant Presbyterian Church was part of a series of talks organized by the church in response to September’s shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott. In that case, Scott, who was black, was killed by a black Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer, an incident that sparked days of protests in the city. The church described Wednesday’s talk as designed to share ideas for increasing affordable housing as a means to address “racial inequality” in Charlotte. Panelists said local and state government could take steps to make it easier for developers to build affordable housing, like faster approval processes and more tax breaks to help cover costs. “Mayor ... time of is of the essence,” McColl said, addressing Mayor Jennifer Roberts, who was in the audience. “You have the ability to talk to your people about, ‘Hey, how about speeding up these approvals?’”Just as Mr. Lincoln's War was all prettied up by spinning naked aggression as a noble war of liberation, today, big business sells its schemes for grabbing public funds by marketing them as projects that will benefit the oppressed. And if we make a few billion along the way, well ... that's business!

Now brace yourselves, gentle readers, because I'm about to make an heretical statement: Open borders aren't always a good thing. Case in point: a "massive" heroin ring tying together Rowan County and Mexico:
Rowan County Sheriff's office says a massive heroin bust has ties to a Mexican trafficking ring based in the Charlotte-Matthews area. After a three-year-long federal, state and local heroin trafficking investigation, the Rowan County Sheriff's office arrested Mecklenburg County residents Tuesday. Information led investigators to the discovery that a Mexican National heroin trafficking ring had been supplying heroin to Rowan County for over 10 years, some transactions involving quantities of up to $10,000 worth of drugs at a time.Gee, after 10 years, these folks have deep ties in their communities. Shouldn't we consider letting them stay? After all, they are contributing to the local economy.
Here we go again -- another speech is violently shut down in the name of tolerance, anti-racism, and "social justice." And as the lede notes, the violence swept through the campus that made itself famous for championing free speech, UC Berkeley:
Violence erupted Wednesday night at UC Berkeley -- the same campus where the Free Speech Movement began -- to protest a scheduled talk by right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos. The university blamed "150 masked agitators" for the unrest, saying they had come to campus to disturb an otherwise peaceful protest. Administrators decided to cancel the event about two hours before the Breitbart editor's speech. UC Berkeley said it removed him from campus "amid the violence and destruction of property and out of concern for public safety." Black-clad protesters wearing masks threw commercial-grade fireworks and rocks at police. Some even hurled Molotov cocktails that ignited fires. They also smashed windows of the student union center on the Berkeley campus where the Yiannopoulos event was to be held. At least six people were injured. Some were attacked by the agitators -- who are a part of an anarchist group known as the "Black Bloc" that has been causing problems in Oakland for years, said Dan Mogulof, UC Berkeley spokesman.Is there any doubt that the real threat to liberty and order emanates from the left? These street thugs justify their actions in the name of principles that somehow supercede the law. But when laws are broken and the rights of others are deliberately violated, the result is not paradise, but tyranny. Once again, an antifa attacked a woman. While her back was turned. And then he ran away. Big man! In the video below, leftist thugs attack an unarmed man. After he's knocked unconscious, these brave warriors for social justice continue to kick and club him while some shout "Beat his ass!" I suppose a helpless man will have to do when they can't sneak up on a female.

In case you haven't been paying attention to the arbiters of accepted thought, here's what you're supposed to believe: DONALD TRUMP IS EEEEEEEVIL! Here's proof, courtesy of Time:
A Michigan man blames the death of his 75-year-old mother on President Donald Trump after she was forced to stay in Iraq during the implementation of his controversial immigration ban. Mike Hager, a U.S. citizen who is from Iraq, told the Detroit television affiliate Fox 2 that he had gone to Iraq to bring his mother, Naimma, back to the United States for medical treatment after she fell ill while visiting there. His mother, a permanent U.S. resident, had lived in America since 1995. But when Hager got to the airport in Iraq, she was turned away, and so were two of his nephews and a niece, because of Trump’s executive order. She died the following day.That settles it! Trump is evil. Wait, what's this from the New York Daily News:
An Iraq war contractor who claimed President Trump’s controversial travel ban caused his mother's death lied about the circumstance. Imam Husham Al-Hussainy, head of the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center in Dearborn, Mich. told WJBK-TV that Mike Hager's mother died five days before Trump issued the executive order. He confirmed Hager's 75-year-old mother had been treated in Detroit, where she lived, for kidney disease before traveling to Iraq to visit family. The Daily News has reached out to Hager for comment.That's what we can expect from "war contractors": war, multiculturalism, and lies -- in other words, the very things DC imposes on us.
Local nullification of federal immigration laws are already the policy in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento. So it's no surprise that the state of California is considering making that policy the de jure statewide standard. What is surprising is how quickly talk of California seceding from DC has swelled in the last few months. From CBS News:
California may prohibit local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities, creating a border-to-border sanctuary in the nation’s largest state as legislative Democrats ramp up their efforts to battle President Donald Trump’s migration policies. The legislation is scheduled for its first public hearing Tuesday as the Senate rushes to enact measures that Democratic lawmakers say would protect immigrants from the crackdown that the Republican president has promised.What happens next is anyone's guess. One scenario is that DC retaliates. Trump has already threatened to withhold federal funds from cities that openly flout national immigration law, so he could do the same to the entire state of California. California isn't exactly helpless. It could withhold taxes, and since it's a tax payer rather than a tax taker, such a move would carry real weight. Things are really shaking these days. Let's keep our eyes open and our powder dry.

The cultural and political divide between left and right has taken on a frightening scope. The left has decided that anyone who disagrees with it is a Nazi who does not deserve to live. This report is as graphic as it is revealing:
Video footage shows an anti-Trump agitator punching and knocking out a Trump supporter during a mini-riot at Portland Airport over the weekend. The clip shows anti-Trump protesters pushing and shoving their way into the airport aggressively as they yell “peace! peace!” A confrontation then quickly arises before one of the anti-Trump radicals punches a man from behind, knocking him out cold. The footage appears to show two anti-Trump protesters taking a swing at the same victim. It subsequently emerged that the victim, 39-year-old Grant Chisholm, a member of the Bible Believers group, was hit with “something metallic”. “They almost killed me tonight,” Chisholm told the Oregonian. While some of the anti-Trump protesters appear shocked at the violence and denounce it, others are heard quite clearly celebrating the attack. “That’s how you talk to a Nazi! That’s right!” screams one, before gloating, “Your boy got knocked out!”And who can forget the cowardly sneak attack on Richard Spencer? This jarring video has racked up almost two and a half million views. There's no telling how many were repulsed by it, and how many cheered on the faux ninja antifa who ran like a rabbit after sucker-punching Spencer. Yeah, you're a hero, punk. The evolving shape of political clashes in this country does not remind one of the times leading to the American Civil War, but of the Spanish Civil War, whose fault lines weren't as clear or contiguous. While certain regions of Spain tended to support one side or the other, it was ideology and religion that sparked the Spanish Civil War, making it the bloodiest civil war of the 20th century. Watching the two videos above, it would appear we're headed toward an internecine disaster.

"You’re probably seeing the best persuasion you will ever see from a new president. Instead of dribbling out one headline at a time, so the vultures and critics can focus their fire, Trump has flooded the playing field. You don’t know where to aim your outrage. He’s creating so many opportunities for disagreement that it’s mentally exhausting. Literally. He’s wearing down the critics, replacing their specific complaints with entire encyclopedias of complaints. And when Trump has created a hundred reasons to complain, do you know what impression will be left with the public? He sure got a lot done." - Scott Adams

A proposal in California has been submitted to the Secretary of State’s Office on Thursday campaigning for the state to secede from the United States. The proposed “Calexit” initiative would ask voters to repeal part of the state constitution that declares California an inseparable part of the U.S. A recent poll suggested that one in three California residents would support a possible secession from the U.S. due to their opposition to President Donald Trump. No mention has been made of the president in the proposal. If the proposal qualifies for the ballot and is approved by voters, it could be a step to a future vote on whether the state would break away from the rest of the nation.If Trump announced he needed volunteers to invade and hold California, do you think millennials will unplug their iPhones and enlist to keep California in the Union? Note to Dead-Enders: This isn't the late 19th century. The age of the Hegelian superstate is over. This is the age of devolution and the revival of historical nations. Ideology is dead as an organizing principle. Culture is replacing ideology at an accelerating pace. Get used to it.

Frankly, I never believed Trump would fulfill his campaign promises. Cynic that I've become, I figured he was only saying whatever it took to get elected. Plus, I couldn't imagine the Deep State would permit Trump or anybody else to throw a monkey wrench into their plans for demographic revolution. And while it's too soon to say Trump has delivered, he's certainly off to a good start:
President Trump signed executive actions Wednesday ordering the construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall and targeting sanctuary cities, following through on campaign promises that energized his base – and outraged his critics – during the 2016 campaign. The orders cover a range of immigration enforcement measures. The marquee item is a directive to pursue a southern border wall. “A nation without borders is not a nation,” Trump declared after signing the measures, while speaking to employees at the Department of Homeland Security. “Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders.”Exactly. And of course, the Treason Lobby is up in arms. Scott Wiener of California tweeted: Today Trump declared war on immigrants. Trump is in for one hell of a fight w CA. We will have our immigrant neighbors' backs. Hey, Wiener, you're supposed to worry about Americans' backs, not the backs of invaders. Here's an idea: Why don't you secede?

Hillary represented the DC Establishment. The dirty tricks used to shove Bernie Sanders and his supporters to the sidelines will go down in history as one of the lowest points in the history of the Democratic Party. So it's only fitting that Sanders and his supporters get to play a little game of payback:
Why should we care what the leftist snowflakes in California do? As California sinks into the bottomless pit of third-world socialism, the Bear Republic will further distance itself from the rest of the country, especially the conservative South and West. The campaign toward independence will inevitably accelerate. As Reuters reports today, changing demographics is changing California's identity, making it distinctly different from the rest of America:Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) turned out en masse at ordinarily sleepy party caucuses earlier this month, electing a slate of delegates who could be poised to take over the largest Democratic Party organization outside of Washington, D.C. As final vote totals trickled in, Sanders backers claimed to have elected more than 650 delegates out of 1,120 available seats chosen at this month’s caucuses. Those delegates will choose the next state Democratic Party chairman, along with other party officials. Sanders supporters say they hope to change the very nature of the Democratic Party. ... California’s legislature has been at the vanguard of some of the most liberal policy programs in the nation, on everything from climate change to immigrant rights. Sanders supporters hope to leverage their newfound power to convince Democratic majorities in the state Assembly and state Senate to embrace even more aggressive progressive positions.
In Lodi, California, Democratic party activist Bruce Rubly, who told Reuters/Ipsos pollsters that he "strongly supported" California secession, said he thinks it could happen if Trump and the Republicans who dominate the U.S. Congress impose conservative policies on such issues as the environment, immigration and marijuana legalization. "There's a whole series of things that are going to get Californians riled up," said Rubly, 68. "And if he pushes those buttons in the wrong way, there's going to be hell to pay."In 2014, only 20% of Californians supported secession; today 32% would vote to withdraw from the DC Empire. Where can I send my donation to the Free California Fund?

And if you don't believe it, check out this op-ed from Andrew Cuomo, the liberal governor of New York:
We are entering a new political era in which women across the country may feel that their reproductive rights will be threatened, and all states -- not just New York -- will have an opportunity to take the lead in improving the status of women through their respective legislatures. As we are doing in New York, governors and state legislatures now have the opportunity and the duty, through executive orders and legislation, to protect reproductive rights, close the wage gap and combat sexual violence.Cuomo then lists all the wonderful progressive initiatives he and the New York legislature passed. And in case you don't see where this is headed, Cuomo makes it crystal clear in this forceful conclusion:
It is time for states to use the legal powers they have to protect the rights of all their constituents, including the many women marching Saturday for equality.The legacy of Thomas Jefferson, J.C. Calhoun, and Sam Ervin is alive and making history. Soon it will be re-drawing the map.
Peggy Noonan looks at the Trump victory and sees fault lines in the DC Empire:
The Trump Wars of the past 18 months do not now go away. Now it becomes the Trump Civil War, every day, with Democrats trying to get rid of him and half the country pushing back. To reduce it to the essentials: As long as Mr. Trump’s party holds the House, it will be a standoff. If the Democrats take the House, they will move to oust him. Because we are divided. We are two nations, maybe more. Normally a new president has someone backing him up, someone publicly behind him. Mr. Obama had the mainstream media—the big broadcast networks, big newspapers, activists and intellectuals, pundits and columnists of the left—the whole shebang. He had a unified, passionate party. Mr. Trump in comparison has almost nothing. The mainstream legacy media oppose him, even hate him, and will not let up. The columnists, thinkers and magazines of the right were mostly NeverTrump; some came reluctantly to support him. His party is split or splitting. The new president has gradations of sympathy, respect or support from exactly one cable news channel, and some websites. He really has no one but those who voted for him.There are indeed several nations within the quickly crumbling USA. Already there are serious secessionist movements in several states and regions, including California, Texas, and now Oklahoma. The mindless fury displayed this weekend by the far-left rioters opposed to the Trump presidency illustrates just how divided the country is. With that kind of venomous hatred against traditional America, no accommodation or compromise is possible. It's time to recognize reality and go our separate ways. Peacefully -- while we can.

From CNS News:
The Anti-Capitalist Anti-Fascist Bloc’s DisruptJ20 Inauguration protest turned violent Friday morning as protestors gathered at Logan Circle in D.C. and marched down 13th Street. ... Footage shot by MRC Culture and CNSNews.com shows protestors vandalizing local businesses, destroying a limousine with hammers, spray-painting on walls and windows, smashing kiosks, and chanting “no cops, no borders, fight law and order.” The group’s website called for “everyone who opposes fascism and capitalism to join together and demonstrate how to prevent Trump and his cronies from implementing their program. Let’s bring a vision of a better world to Washington, D.C.”Yeah. The vision of the world these cowardly vandals show in the video is a nightmare.
Are Mexicans pouring into California immigrants who only want to assimilate into the existing culture and become good Americans? Or are they invaders? Read this account of a city council meeting in Rialto, California, and decide for yourself:
An official for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California mocked elderly white people at a city council meeting last week, telling them they had “five years left.” Rialto, California, held a regularly scheduled city council meeting last Tuesday after a city councilman apologized for planning an event to discuss the possibility of Rialto becoming a “sanctuary city.” Luis Nolasco, a community engagement and policy advocate for the ACLU of Southern California, stood up to speak at the city council meeting and attacked many of the white people present, saying they are not actual residents of Rialto. Nolasco said, “This is my town.”Yes, Rialto is his town, not yours. Nolasco is merely repeating the same statement made by Mario Obledo, a co-founder of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) and the La Raza Lawyers, who once proclaimed, "California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave." Immigration is what you get when newcomers follow the law and enter a country intending to adapt to the ways of their new country. Demographic displacement results from invasion by conquerors. We can sympathize with the doomed Whites in Rialto, California, but remember, as California goes, so goes the nation. And day by day, both are going, going ... gone.

The District of Columbia is Mordor come to life. Like its fictional counterpart, it is the source of much evil in the world. I've been arguing that for a long time (see here and here, for example). Now Germany's deputy chancellor Sigmar Gabriel, in an attempt to defend Angela Merkel, says the real problem is DC's policy of endless war against Muslims in the Middle East:
Responding to Trump’s comments that Merkel had made an “utterly catastrophic mistake by letting all these illegals into the country”, [German deputy chancellor] Gabriel said the increase in the number of people fleeing the Middle East to seek asylum in Europe had partially been a result of US-led wars destabilising the region. “There is a link between America’s flawed interventionist policy, especially the Iraq war, and the refugee crisis, that’s why my advice would be that we shouldn’t tell each other what we have done right or wrong, but that we look into establishing peace in that region and do everything to make sure people can find a home there again,” Gabriel said.Think how much better off the world will be when the steam inevitably runs out of the Evil Empire.

Literally. Open borders and international travel have created a global petri dish that's breediing all sorts of virulent and antibiotic-resistant bacteria:
A US woman has died from an infection that was resistant to all 26 available antibiotics, health officials said this week, raising new concerns about the rise of dangerous superbugs. The woman, who was in her 70s, died in Nevada in September, and had recently been hospitalized in India with fractured leg bones, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. Experts said she had been treated repeatedly in India during the last two years for a femur fracture and hip problems, most recently in June 2016. ... Once the bacteria was identified in Nevada, the patient was isolated to prevent the infection from spreading in the hospital. ... According to Nick Thomson, leader of the bacterial genomics and evolution group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in England, this bacteria is likely to become more and more resistant. "The report highlights international travel and treatment overseas as a feature in the introduction of this pan-resistant isolate into the USA," he said.Read that last sentence again and ask yourself if a borderless world is really a good idea.
I couldn't help but roll my eyes in disbelief when this story first came out. Really now: a kindergarterner was abused in class because he was Muslim? It was so over-the-top and so obviously contrived that only public school officials and civil rights activists could believe it. I mean really, we're supposed to believe a PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER, the most politically correct of all creatures, assaulted a 5 year old because he was Muslim? Please. Fortunately, police were able to clear the accused teacher:
Police found no evidence to confirm a November report that a teacher bullied and assaulted a Muslim kindergartener at David Cox Road Elementary, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools reported Friday. Principal Celeste Spears-Ellis notified parents that the accused teacher has returned to the classroom after the District Attorney’s Office found “no evidence of an assault other than the complainant’s report” and no grounds for criminal charges. The incident made national news in November when the Council on American-Islamic Rights wrote to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction alleging that the teacher “continuously harassed and recently assaulted” a 5-year-old boy in her class. The letter, dated Nov. 21, said the teacher had grabbed the boy by the neck and choked him on Nov. 16. It said she had also failed to prevent classmates from bullying the boy and forced him to carry a large backpack filled with textbooks and headphonesBut the story wasn't too over-the-top for the Council on American-Islamic Rights, which has mutated into a jittery, bellicose group just as capable as the NAACP of shrill tantrums and over-rehearsed paranoia. Guess this little incident should burst their credibility. But do you think the corporate media will probe the next such report? Do they EVER learn? Welcome to our glorious multicultural future, with every ethnic group clamoring to be recognized as an oppressed minority.

In case anyone out there imagined leftists were pro-freedom, pro-democracy, blah, blah, blah, take a look at Rosie O'Donnell's dream scenario for stopping Donald Trump:
Donald Trump ripped Rosie O’Donnell during the first Republican presidential debate in 2015, saying that she was the only woman about whom he had ever made disparaging comments. Now, with less than 10 days until Trump takes the oath of office, O’Donnell says that she’d support “martial law” in order to delay his inauguration. “FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS ‘CLEARED’ OF ALL CHARGES,” O’Donnell wrote in response to a Twitter user who suggested the U.S. military take control of the government until the president-elect can prove he has no financial ties to Russia. I FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS "CLEARED" OF ALL CHARGES https://t.co/fUn8FZ8RTj — ROSIE (@Rosie) January 12, 2017Where exactly is the provision in the Constitution for imposing martial law? And is there a sub-section specifying how Hollywood actors have that authority? Beats me -- but then, I've never been able to find the amendment that gives illegal aliens the right to ignore US borders, or for people claiming they're "transgender" getting the power to nullify both local laws and social mores.
