Immigration Outsourced To Everyone But The People

America, Democracy, Europe, IMMIGRATION, Politics

“.. in a democracy, leaders who dismiss and denigrate widespread concerns soon find themselves ex-leaders. Everywhere in the Western world there is a fast-growing constituency for new kinds of immigration and refugee policies. If anything is shameful, it is the shabby, thoughtless, and arrogant elite consensus that has to date denied that constituency a responsible political leadership. But that too is changing, yielding to heavy evidence and hard experience.”—David Frum, “America’s Immigration Challenge” (Dec 11, 2015)

The only cliche in this article by fellow Canadian David Frum is “challenge” in the title. An excellent expose indeed.

Bibi Netanyahu’s Two-Faced, Brutish, Boorish Reaction To Trump

America, Homeland Security, IMMIGRATION, Israel, Judaism & Jews, Nationhood

Nationhood is for Jews, but not for gentiles. This is what disgusts about Israeli politicians, pundits and now Bibi Netanyahu, worshiped by neocons. The prime minister and his Knesset take as a given that Jews should be able to do what is necessary to protect themselves in their homeland. The protection of American lives in their homeland, on the other hand, is a far less urgent matter to these Israelis.

Netanyahu has openly declared that he wants to retain Israel’s national character. Well of course. And so he should.

He has rightly refused to absorb some of the region’s refugees, insisting that this would conflict with his obligation to his countrymen. Copy that, Mr prime minister. But when an American patriot so much as suggests stanching the flow of blood in the US, caused by this country’s laissez-faire immigration policies—Bibi and his pols protest boorishly.

CNN:

“Prime Minister Netanyahu rejects Donald Trump’s recent remarks about Muslims,” according to a statement issued by the prime minister’s office.

“The State of Israel respects all religions and strictly guarantees the rights of all its citizens. At the same time, Israel is fighting against militant Islam that targets Muslims, Christians and Jews alike and threatens the entire world,” the statement said.

Netanyahu came under fire from dozens of members of the Israeli parliament for planning to host the controversial GOP presidential front-runner. They called on the Prime Minister to cancel his meeting with the billionaire businessman.

As I wrote in “Cut The Cycle-Of-Violence Crap”:

Israelis seldom extend us the sympathy Americans so dearly deserve. The Muhammadan menace in the U.S. is, by default, downplayed when it’s portrayed by Israelis as part-and-parcel of the cross borne by a multicultural, multiethnic democracy: The U.S.

The largely homogeneous Jewish State is said to be entitled to live free of the Muhammadan menace. Not so our Anglo-American Christian civilization.

Let right-minded Americans remind their Israeli friends, however, that America was not multiethnic and multireligious by birth. Rather, the America we love and need every bit as Israelis love and need Israel has become a balkanized, multiethnic toilet by political design, by force.

This is no way to live. Not for Americans; not for Israelis.

Trump’s response was masterful:

He is reminding Israel that he’ll not forget this shameful episode if …

UPDATED: The Turks, The Turkmen & The American Turkeys Stateside

America, Foreign Policy, Government, Islam, Israel, libertarianism, Middle East

The US government is too often on the side of the American People’s enemies. (Think closely about the implications of that statement.) I would venture that were a US pilot parachuting through disputed airspace, onto Turkey’s territory, the Turks—great NATO allies of Obama and Bush—would sic their Turkmen proxies on our pilot, and these ethnic Turkmen would have eliminated him, with blood-curdling cries to a vampiric god, as they did an ISIS-fighting Russian pilot. The Kurds—real allies to America and Israel but betrayed by both—our pals the Turks are always killing.

What is the term for a government that’s mostly on the side of its people’s enemies?

UPDATE: There is that tinny robotic libertarian edict to see no evil, hear no evil; some libertarians believe you should pretend to see no evil/ hear no evil, all under the guise of foreign policy neutrality. Not me. Noted here was the fact that there is a sympathetic people in the region. That only the 3, proverbial, see-no-evil hear-no-evil monkeys (and some libertarians) would deny. The post further asked not what we can do for the good Kurds, but why are this government’s interests (ditto Bush’s) the same as those of the bad actors. The paragraph is a rather modest one. So, where is its answer? What is the proper term for “a government that’s mostly on the side of its people’s enemies”? Where are those Founder quotes?

UPDATED: ‘ET Analyzes Paris Attacks & Weeps For The West’ Affects The Heartland

America, Multiculturalism, Nationhood, Neoconservatism, Paleolibertarianism, Terrorism, The West

“ET Analyzes Paris Attacks & Weeps For The West” continues to draw intense reactions from the few sentient readers one can hope to reach, so often in the American Heartland:

Dear Ms. Mercer,

OMG!!!!!!! This is almost surreal, that is if it wasn’t so true. You, my dear respected lady/writer, are absolutely fantastic in the way you display your thoughts and purpose. I don’t know about the rest of America, but for sure I’m your biggest fan in the Heartland! Very few writers cause my heart to beat with purpose in such dark days. …

… Today, you have given me purpose, breaking this ice of despair. I once again feel like going on the attack against those who would destroy our civilization, our need, our want to live and be productive with liberty in a free society.

How often do I have to say, “You have just out-done yourself?”
And you also excite me with a passion for right ideals – not every writer can do this.
Sincerely,

ST, IL

UPDATE (11/29): More notes:

Since we can’t elect Ilana or ET, let’s at least elect Trump. Fantastic article.
JDH.
