Nazi Flag Flies Again

Ever since Hitler blew off the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact and turned on their Uncle Joe, lefties have had it in for Nazis, even going so far as to claim that National Socialists are not fellow socialists. A healthy dislike for the swastika is one of the few things libs have in common with countermoonbats. Hopefully that dislike will endure, even now that their Islamic compadres are flying it openly:

Hundreds of residents of Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem, were astounded Monday morning to see an oversized Nazi flag flying next to a mosque in the Arab town of Beit Omar. …

A resident, Uri Arnon, told the Tazpit News Agency: “I felt we were going back 75 years, losing our hold on the land. The Arabs no longer feel the need to hide their murderous tendencies, announcing out loud that they wish to annihilate us.”

Artful fence-straddling doesn’t work in the face of pure evil. Moonbats are going to have to choose sides.

Jason Richwine on IQ and Immigration

Watch as the courageous countermoonbat Jason Richwine grasps the nettle by honestly discussing the most important issue of our time — the demographic transformation of America:

As you might expect, the moonbat establishment does not take kindly to frank talk on this topic. A lynch mob consisting of leftists and RINOs has forced him to resign from the Heritage Foundation. In case that doesn’t send a sufficiently intimidating message, liberal thugs are now demanding an investigation of those at Harvard who approved his PhD dissertation.

If people like Richwine were allowed to tell the truth about what the ruling class is doing to this country, the public might rise up and stop it.

Chicago Teens at Play

Kudos to the Chicago CBS affiliate for not using the misleading euphemism “teens” in this print report:

An elderly woman was confronted on the Magnificent Mile by a mob of young men on Wednesday, who proceeded to take $100,000 worth of jewelry she was wearing.

A Chicago police source said the 69-year-old woman from Homewood Flossmoor was accosted by 10 to 12 African American men while walking in the 700 block of North Michigan around noon in front of Saks Fifth Avenue.

They threatened to beat her if she didn’t give them her purse and jewelry. …

The men involved were between 18 and 19 years-old. They were wearing baggy pants and dreads.

Normally attacking lone Caucasians in mob formation is its own reward. Swiping some jewelry is icing on the cake. But why wait around for the government to redistribute other people’s wealth?

Note that the TV version of the story has been politically corrected. There is no mention of race; the baggy pants and dreadlocks are expunged; a woman on the street implies that it was the victim’s fault; another woman on the street testifies that the robbery was unusual; the number of attackers is reduced to “up to a half dozen”; and of course, they are repeatedly referred to as “teens”:

The victim’s story has been called into question. Whatever actually happened here, the discrepancies between CBS’s print and TV reports remain interesting.

Non-Deportation Rate Drops to 99.2%

Good news and bad regarding our treasonous government’s refusal to defend the border and prevent us from being displaced from our own country by welfare colonists. First the good: the non-deportation rate for illegal aliens demanding citizenship under a heavy-handed Obama policy has dropped. Now the bad: even after dropping, it is a staggering 99.2%.

The Homeland Security Department has granted legal status to 99.2 percent of all illegal immigrants who have applied under President Obama’s new non-deportation policy for young adults, according to the latest numbers released Friday.

That’s a slight drop from the 99.5 percent approval rate reported last month.

The policy, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, grants legal status to most illegal immigrants under the age of 31 who came to the U.S. before age 16 — usually brought by their parents. They are allowed to remain in the U.S. without fear of deportation, and are given work permits. Most states have agreed to issue them driver’s licenses as well.

DACA is seen as a test-run should Congress pass a broad legalization for the 11 million illegal immigrants estimated [by the pro-amnesty crowd, which won’t admit that the real number is probably several times higher] to be in the U.S.

That’s one reason why the high approval rate is striking.

Critics of the Obama policy say a rate that high means the administration isn’t doing much screening of those who are applying.

Apparently the Regime is sufficiently confident that the vast majority of them will vote Democrat that screening is not considered necessary.

The Gang of Eight Quislings’ amnesty outrage will only be a formality. We already have de facto amnesty, and the whole Third World knows it.

What drives US immigration policy.

Where the IRS Scandal Buck Stops

Regarding the appalling IRS/Tea Party scandal, inquiring minds are want to know how far up the chain the rot goes. Let’s ask a staffer at the Cincinnati headquarters, command center for harassing patriot groups:

“We’re not political,’’ said one determinations staffer in khakis as he left work late Tuesday afternoon. “We people on the local level are doing what we are supposed to do. . . . That’s why there are so many people here who are flustered. Everything comes from the top. We don’t have any authority to make those decisions without someone signing off on them. There has to be a directive.”

Anyone remember Harry Truman? He told us where the buck stops.
