Obama Wrong Again on Arizona

In today's Conservative Review, Pat Buchanan, hits a home run when he discusses the Arizona Immigration Law. We need to support Arizona on this issue. Until the national government decides it must ENFORCE the laws of this country, things will only disintegrate. Do we really want Mexican drug cartels having free access to the United States to spread their poison? Do we want unrestricted access by any foreign national to the country? Why is it that we can know where every cow in this country was born, raised, sold and butchered but we cannot control our borders?

For those of you who believe this asking someone to see their drivers license is just like Nazi Germany, I suggest you refuse to present that document when you are trying to make a withdrawal at the bank, purchase medicene at the pharmacy or when you get stopped by a police officer. We present our documents every day.

Additionally, try to go to Mexico without documents. You cannot. A foreigner must have a passport and if they are staying more than 30 day must have a visa. A vacationer can stay in the border area for three days on his/her passport. If they are there on business there are forms that one must fill out regarding their visit. If you don't believe this, go to the Mexican government site--
Our priorities are way out of whack and it is time that someone has done something about it. Congratulations Arizona, I commend you.


Whose Country Is This?
by Pat Buchanan

With the support of 70 percent of its citizens, Arizona has
ordered sheriffs and police to secure the border and remove
illegal aliens, half a million of whom now reside there.

Arizona acted because the U.S. government has abdicated its
constitutional duty to protect the states from invasion and
refuses to enforce America's immigration laws.

"We in Arizona have been more than patient waiting for
Washington to act," said Gov. Jan Brewer. "But decades of
inaction and misguided policy have created an unacceptable

We have a crisis in Arizona because we have a failed state
in Washington.

What is the response of Barack Obama, who took an oath to
see to it that federal laws are faithfully executed?

He is siding with the law-breakers. He is pandering to the
ethnic lobbies. He is not berating a Mexican regime that
aids and abets this invasion of the country of which he is
commander in chief. Instead, he attacks the government of
Arizona for trying to fill a gaping hole in law enforcement
left by his own dereliction of duty.

He has denounced Arizona as "misguided." He has called on
the Justice Department to ensure that Arizona's sheriffs
and police do not violate anyone's civil rights. But he
has said nothing about the rights of the people of Arizona
who must deal with the costs of having hundreds of
of lawbreakers in their midst.

How's that for Andrew Jackson-style leadership?

Obama has done everything but his duty to enforce the law.

Undeniably, making it a state as well as a federal crime
to be in this country illegally, and requiring police to
check the immigration status of anyone they have a "reason-
able suspicion" is here illegally, is tough and burdensome.
But what choice did Arizona have?

The state has a fiscal crisis caused in part by the burden
of providing schooling and social welfare for illegals and
their families, who consume far more in services than they
pay in taxes and who continue to pour in. Even John McCain
is now calling for 3,000 troops on the border.

Police officers and a prominent rancher have been murdered.
There have been kidnappings believed to be tied to the
Mexican drug cartels. There are nightly high-speed chases
through the barrios where innocent people are constantly
at risk.

If Arizona does not get control of the border and stop
the invasion, U.S. citizens will stop coming to Arizona
and will begin to depart, as they are already fleeing

What we are talking about here is the Balkanization and
breakup of a nation into ethnic enclaves. A country that
cannot control its borders isn't really a country anymore,
Ronald Reagan reminded us.

The tasks that Arizonans are themselves undertaking are
ones that belong by right, the Constitution and federal
law to the Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforce-
ment, and Homeland Security.

Arizona has been compelled to assume the feds' role because
the feds won't do their job. And for that dereliction of
the buck stops on the desk of the president of the
United States

Why is Obama paralyzed? Why does he not enforce the law,
even if he dislikes it, by punishing the businessmen who
hire illegals and by sending the 12 million to 20 million
illegals back home? President Eisenhower did it. Why won't

Because he is politically correct. Because he owes a big
debt to the Hispanic lobby that helped deliver two-thirds
of that vote in 2008. Though most citizens of Hispanic
descent in Arizona want the border protected and the laws
enforced, the Hispanic lobby demands that the law be

Fair enough. But the nation rose up as one to reject the
"path-to-citizenship" -- i.e., amnesty -- that the 2007
plan of George W. Bush, McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack

Al Sharpton threatens to go to Phoenix and march in the
streets against the new Arizona law. Let him go.

Let us see how many African-Americans, who are today frozen
out of the 8 million jobs held by illegal aliens that might
otherwise go to them or their children, will march to
defend an invasion for which they are themselves paying
the heaviest price.

Last year, while Americans were losing a net of 5 million
jobs, the U.S. government -- Bush and Obama both -- issued
1,131,000 green cards to legal immigrants to come and take
the jobs that did open up, a flood of immigrants equaled
in only four other years in our history.

What are we doing to our own people?

Whose country is this, anyway?

America today has an establishment that, because it does
not like the immigration laws, countenances and condones
wholesale violation of those laws.

Nevertheless, under those laws, the U.S. government is
obligated to deport illegal aliens and punish businesses
that knowingly hire them.

This is not an option. It is an obligation.

Can anyone say Barack Obama is meeting that obligation?

Letter To Representative Peters

I wrote the following letter to my Representative today.

Representative Peters,
I doubt that you will respond to my message as it poses a common sense solution which seems missing in Washington. Before you can "fix" the problem, you must get to the root cause. The root cause is the Community Reinvestment Act. This act forced the banks to provide loans to those people who could not afford them. Several administrations then forced the regulators to "grade" the banks on how well they were meeting the requirements of this bill. If they did not provide enough loans, they were downgraded. So the banks found themselves with billions of dollars of loans they knew were going to fail. Creativity then created the "alt a" and sub prime loans packages that were sold all over the world. (By the way, the FHA still sells the same type of loan.) That Dear Representative is the cause.
As I see it there are several culprits to this problem. They are:
1. Congress who passed the law
2. The Administrations who demanded the law be followed
3. Fannie and Freddie who bought the loans (and were praised on doing such a good job)
4 The Regulators who did not point out the problem
5. The Rating agencies who went along with the fraud
6. And the banks who recklessly sold garbage.
There is plenty of blame to go around but as I see it, your heralded "reform" bill only addresses the last one.
As long as this bill is still on the books and any reform will be meaningless without its removal. So, lets get off our political posturing stand and work to invalidate this law and then we can all work to see how reform can try to prevent it.

China Now Like US in 1800s

Pat Buchanan today in his article compares the United States of the 1800s and China today. The comparison is very clear and it points out that the best days of the United States are behind us. We are so bogged down by bureauacy that we cannot do what we did in the past (interstate highway system, refineries, nuclear plants). Our budget is out of control. We have no intention of cutting any program.
My fear that there is a day when the time will come that we will need (demanded by those who own our debt?) to make changes to programs and those who then become "disinfranchised" will riot in the streets demanding their benefits be re-instituted. It will become group against group and those with the most ammunition will win! Unfortunately we are closer to this time than most will acknowledge.
Your comments are welcome.
Pat paints a very scary view of the future of the United States. Unfortunately, it is the truth.

19th Century Americans
by Pat Buchanan

"Thank you, Hu Jintao, and thank you, China," said Hugo
, as he announced a $20 billion loan from Beijing,
to be repaid in Venezuelan oil.

The Chinese just threw Chavez a life-preserver. For
Venezuela is reeling from 25 percent inflation, government-
induced blackouts to cope with energy shortages and an
economy that shrank by 3.3 percent in 2009.

Where did China get that $20 billion? From us. From
consumers at Wal-Mart. That $20 billion is 1 percent of
the $2 trillion in trade surpluses Beijing has run up with
the United States over two decades. Beijing is using its
trillions of dollars in reserves, piled up from exports to
America, to cut deals to lock up strategic resources for
the coming struggle with the United States for hegemony in
Asia and the world.

She has struck multibillion-dollar deals with Sudan,
Brazil, Kazakhstan, Russia, Iran and Australia to secure
a steady supply of oil, gas and vital minerals to maintain
the 10-12 percent annual growth China has been racking up
since Deng Xiaoping dispensed with Maoism and set his
nation out on the capitalist road.

China has dozens of nuclear power plants under construct-
ion, has completed the Three Gorges Dam -- the largest
power source on earth -- and is tying the nation together
with light rail, bullet trains and highways in infrastruct-
ure projects unlike any the world has ever seen.

Contrast what China is doing with what we are about. We
have declared vast regions of our country, onshore and
offshore, off-limits to drilling for oil and gas. We have
not built a nuclear power plant in 30 years or a refinery
in 25 years. We have declared war on fossil fuels to save
the planet from global warming.

Given the power of the environmental lobby to tie up
projects in endless litigation, we could never today
build our Interstate Highway System, Hoover Dam, the
TVA or the Union Pacific Railroad.

Determined to take America's title as the world's first
manufacturing nation, as she has taken Germany's title as
the world's leading exporter, China keeps her currency
undervalued and demands of those who sell to China that
they also produce in China. As America's share of the
world economy steadily falls, China's share has doubled.
This year, China will overtake Japan as the world's
second-largest economy.

Having seen the Soviet Union disintegrate into 15 nations
and fearing the ethno-nationalism of Tibetans and Uighurs,
Beijing floods her border provinces with Han Chinese.
America, declaring racial, ethnic and religious diversity
a strength, invites the world to come and swamp its native-
born. And mostly poor, unskilled and uneducated, they are
coming by the millions.

China puts savings ahead of spending, production ahead of
consumption, manufacturing ahead of finance. Embracing
free trade, Americans declare that it makes no difference
who produces what, where. What's good for the Global
Economy is good for America.

Before the financial collapse, the U.S. savings rate stood
at zero percent of family income. In China, it ranged
between 35 percent and 50 percent.

Since the Cold War, the United States has been playing
empire -- intervening to punish evil-doers and advance
democracy in Panama, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo,
Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.

We have expanded NATO to include Eastern Europe, the Baltic
and much of the Balkan Peninsula. We have not let a
single alliance lapse from the Cold War. And we have fewer
friends and more adversaries than at the end of the Cold
. What has all this intervention availed us?

China, having fought no one, has rapidly built up her
military power and developed ties to the growing number of
nations at odds with America, from Russia to Iran to Sudan
to Venezuela.

The Chinese of 2010 call to mind 19th century Americans who
shoved aside Mexicans, Indians and Spanish to populate a
continent, build a mighty nation, challenge the British
-- superpower of the day -- and swiftly move past
her in manufacturing to become first nation on earth. Men
were as awed by America then as they are by China today.

America seems a declining superpower. She cannot defend her
borders, balance her budgets or win her wars. Her education-
al system at the primary and secondary level is a shambles.
In the first decade of the century, she lost one of every
three manufacturing jobs. In this second decade, she is
looking at trillion-dollar deficits to 2020. The world is
losing confidence in her ability to manage her surging
national debt.

While we are finally extricating ourselves after seven
years from an unnecessary war in Iraq, we are heading
deeper into an Afghan war that has lasted a decade, the
end of which it is impossible to see.

During the Cold War, China was in the grip of a millenarian
ideology that blinded her to her true interests. Today,
it is we who are captive to a utopian ideology that is
becoming perilous to the republic.
