The Movement Behind the Pro Illegal Alien Protests



Here’s an opinion piece written to proclaim “Los Angeles is Ours Now”
Thanks to Michelle Malkin for the link to this blog.
We want to be an open hearted society but it gets even harder when things like these show up and are the beliefs behind the Reconquista (La Raza, MEChA) movement. Here’s a wonderfully illuminating video narrated by some of the biggest political names in California state politics who claim (every last one of them) that the Latinos are taking over so get used to it.

Taft v Martens: Oregon SOS Spokeswoman Called Out By MSM

Anne Martens, Secretary of State Bill Bradbury’s spokeswoman, scripter and scribe, has opined on a blog (here) that I, Operation ID, State Representative Linda Flores, and anyone else who believes in getting a handle on illegal immigration and halting free long term benefits to non US citizens is a racist.
When she began catching flak for writing this screed, she issued a ‘disclaimer’ (here) attempting to placate those who wondered if the chief spokeswoman for the SOS could be fair and objective in dealing with the issue. The SOS’s office, of course, controls the elections process in the state of Oregon and therefore could check (as we requested) for citizenship on the new, but alas, compromised data base of voters in Oregon. She IS the SOS’s spokeswoman. She belittled the OPERATION ID letters before she received them thereby dismissing out of hand the requests contained therein.
Well finally, the MSM has our back. The Albany Democrat Herald weighs in calling out Ms. Martens on her attempt to have it both ways: Unbiased at the office AND anti illegal immigration reform, bomb throwing, screed writing partisan on her own time. What the DH fails to point out below is that until she was caught in the act, Martens didn’t believe she had to separate private from professional. The arrogance with which the SOS’s office (and others) operates is the problem. They don’t believe you matter. Only their agenda matters. The personal was the professional. That’s the way it has been in Oregon and that’s why it’s time for a regime change. I’m glad she outed herself for all the state to see.

“…she is kidding herself that as a spokeswoman for Bradbury and a state employee she has a completely private life in which she can make fun of legislators’ names and accuse others of “vitriol” without some raised eyebrows among people interested in politics and public life.That’s one of the downsides of blogs. Bloggers can easily get carried away by the freewheeling atmosphere where anything goes and no restraint applies. If someone in a prominent position contributes to such a site, even as a private person, she can’t be surprised if anyone takes offense. “

The Last Helicopter: Iran’s "Kissinger" Reveals his Theory on American Will


In the opinion section of the Wall Street Journal today is an interesting piece about what Iran’s version of Dr. Kissinger, Hassan Abbasi, thinks about American will. Find it here.
Here’s the essential ‘graph:
To hear Mr. Abbasi tell it the entire recent history of the U.S. could be narrated with the help of the image of “the last helicopter.” It was that image in Saigon that concluded the Vietnam War under Gerald Ford. Jimmy Carter had five helicopters fleeing from the Iranian desert, leaving behind the charred corpses of eight American soldiers. Under Ronald Reagan the helicopters carried the corpses of 241 Marines murdered in their sleep in a Hezbollah suicide attack. Under the first President Bush, the helicopter flew from Safwan, in southern Iraq, with Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf aboard, leaving behind Saddam Hussein’s generals, who could not believe why they had been allowed live to fight their domestic foes, and America, another day. Bill Clinton’s helicopter was a Black Hawk, downed in Mogadishu and delivering 16 American soldiers into the hands of a murderous crowd.

Here’s something you might find interesting; they all (Iran, Al Qaeda) think GW is an aberration and believe the old cut and run strategy will resume once G-4-3 is gone. The author continues in the piece about his research finding among other things that the American leader-elite don’t support a cut and run strategy. He believes 9/11 changed everything and everyone. Do YOU?

Who Were Those Protesters in Chicago and LA and San Diego?



Student with an American flag being taunted by protesters in Kiest Park in Dallas. See here where Ted Kennedy missed what was going on in front of his own eyes.


A San Diego area high school student today. If Mexican nationals want freedom as one of their signs said, shouldn’t they be asking the government of Mexico–and demonstrate there?

Some of them espoused a radical agenda such as La Raza and MEChA; others were caught up in a ‘rights’ agenda. Great. If you’ve broken the law to be here what rights should you receive again? Aztlan: Here’s the Plan.
Here’s the way it’s carried out. These chapters of MEChA, like the one here at the University of Oregon, are all about separatism and bigotry.

Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we are an insignificant minority group that should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot of materialism, greed, and intolerance upon us. It is a symbol of Resistance as well as a symbol of Unity amongst Mexicanos, Salvadorenos, Chilenos, Puerto Ricennos, Cubanos, and all other Raza. Chicano has come to represent the strugles and fight of all Latino peoples.
