Simply Illegal….

President Teddy Roosevelt has long been one of my heroes.. Teddy was a man’s man. He had a strong faith and he was not afraid to speak of it.

This is one of my favorite TR quotes;

“After a week of perplexing problems…it does so rest my soul to come into the house of the Lord and to sing and mean it, “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty….(my) great joy and glory that, in occupying an exalted position in the nation, I am enabled, to preach the practical moralities of the Bible to my fellow-countrymen and to hold up Christ as the hope and Savior of the world” Teddy Roosevelt 1909

Theodore Roosevelt possessed great wisdom and a gift for conveying it. He was plain spoken, easily understood and passionate in his convictions.


Another, very timely Teddy Roosevelt quotation speaks to the current immigration problem.

“"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Written in 1919.


That just about spells it out for us, doesn’t it? President Roosevelt wasn’t and still isn’t out of the main stream of thought concerning immigration. He was just stating the obvious; one would expect to find those requirements no matter where one was going to immigrate.

Consider this bit of advice from Mexperience.com;

“What kinds of people successfully moved to Mexico? There are many examples of Britons, Americans, Canadians Germans and Japanese as well as other nationalities who have successfully moved to Mexico, and enjoy a great life, independently, with their partners, their families or in retirement. The common thread of the most successful 'case studies' is that these people strived to integrate themselves and their family within the Mexican Communities where they lived. They learned Spanish, they accepted Mexico's customs, lived and shared in their ways and festivities. They gave up their 'old' ways, and accepted that 'things over here' are different, but not necessarily worse than 'things at home' - and for them - Mexico becomes home away from home; or even, just home. It is this open-minded approach that is critical to really appreciate Mexico and enjoy living there.”

It’s just normal to assimilate into ones new country and culture, to join them. Learn the language, adjust to the culture and embrace the customs and traditions. Even obedience to the rules and laws is not too much to be required. So how do we arrive at the term “illegal alien”? Why would anyone fitting that description expect to be accepted into a nation or culture?
This is what the term “illegal alien” means; it’s not really difficult to understand;

I looked those words up, this is not my opinion, and this is simply the definition of the words. There is no need for debate, the meaning is quite clear.

Definitions are from Webster Dictionary. Net:

Illegal

Not according to, or authorized by, law; specif., contrary to, or in violation of, human law; unlawful; illicit; hence, immoral; as, an illegal act; illegal trade; illegal love.

Alien

(a.) Not belonging to the same country, land, or government, or to the citizens or subjects thereof; foreign; as, alien subjects, enemies, property, shores. (a.) Wholly different in nature; foreign; adverse; inconsistent (with); incongruous; -- followed by from or sometimes by to; as, principles alien from our religion. (n.) A foreigner; one owing allegiance, or belonging, to another country; a foreign-born resident of a country in which he does not possess the privileges of a citizen. Hence, a stranger. See Alienage. (n.) One excluded from certain privileges; one alienated or estranged; as, aliens from God's mercies. (v. t.) To alienate; to estrange; to transfer, as property or ownership.

Here are another couple of words just for the purpose of clarification.
Immigrate

(v. t.) To come into a country of which one is not a native, for the purpose of permanent residence. See Emigrate.

Immigration

(n.) The act of immigrating; the passing or coming into a country for the purpose of permanent residence.

If a person’s behavior or actions are unlawful or illegal the law or laws they are breaking should be enforced. Simply because many are defiantly breaking the law makes it no less illegal.

It matters little to me how many protests and boycotts take place. It matters little to me how many thousands of brazen illegal aliens dare to participate in those protests and boycotts.
If an alien wishes to become an immigrant, that is, wishes to become a permanent resident, application for citizenship must be made.
Until and unless the current immigration laws are amended or changed strict enforcement of the law is a must.

As we see the “protest marches”, Mexican flags, boycotts and the demands from “illegal aliens” and their sympathizers continue, there will be a reaction. Law abiding citizens will counter these assaults..



It is blatantly obvious that the communist group A.N.S.W.E.R and the Mexica Movement are the chief motivators here. It is perhaps a good thing they are doing for us. It is a great wake up call for many, forcing the issue of “illegal aliens” to be dealt at last. At the same time we are getting more exposure to the true nature of the anti-American Mexica Movement and the communist treachery promoted by A.N.S.W.E.R. ..



How long Americans will continue to tolerate this current mayhem is anyone’s guess.. Expect to see lists of employers that hire illegal aliens posted. There will be petitions to signs, products and businesses to boycott. I would expect to see American tourism to Mexico drop off and demands to cut foreign aid to Mexico as well.

The problem can easily be solved…..simply obey the law!!!! Get in line, fill out the paperwork and become loyal American citizens.

There is an alternative, return to Mexico……..

God bless America

“the look of a deer in the headlights”

If you travel the roads and highways in this part of the country it’s necessary to remain alert. There is an abundance of deer in the area. It’s not uncommon to see these graceful beasts bounding across a field or stepping out of the woods. The deer can move so swiftly they seem to appear out of nowhere. Suddenly they are there and you had better react quickly. There’s a strange phenomenon associated with deer. If you happen upon one crossing the road at night they often look into the headlights and freeze as if they were hypnotized. If fortune is with you and you’ve been praying, perhaps you’ll have enough time to get your vehicle stopped. Often it’s not necessary, but flashing your lights and honking the horn will break the spell and everyone goes on with life…

We call that stunned, hypnotized reaction to the headlights “the look of a deer in the headlights” the description is not real clever but once you see it you’ll understand the look.

That “look” can be found on the human face as well…stunned, hypnotized, unable to react, no doubt the effects of fear.

The “look of a deer in the headlights” pretty well describes the expression on the face of the European Union right now!

As Iranian President Ahmadinejad and company become increasingly more belligerent, the EU seems unable to react. Someone had better flash the lights and honk the horn...somebody’s going to get hurt! The word is that Tehran has ballistic missiles that are capable of reaching deep into Europe. Combine that bit of knowledge with Ahmadinejad’s mad hunger for nuclear weapons and Europe’s got big problems. Kids, it’s no time to freeze up!

While it’s true the madman Ahmadinejad has promised to wipe Israel off the map, Europe is in his sights too.

There is an excellent article written by our friend Stan Goodenough and posted the Jerusalem Newswire titled “Iran's rabid rocket race


Here’s an excerpt;


"A few months ago Iranian President "Adolph" Ahmadinejad vowed to wipe the State of Israel off the face of the earth. Simultaneously he denied that his Nazi hero had ever perpetrated the Holocaust.

Both before and since voicing that threat and that lie, Tehran has been forging ahead with its efforts to acquire nuclear know-how, while sending a single and consistent message to the international community:

“We will do what we want to do, and there is nothing that you can do about it.”

Two days ago this message was sent out again in the form of a fiery-tailed multi-warhead monster that was successfully test-fired at the start of Iran's latest round of war games.

Revolutionary Guards air force chief General Hussein Salami told Iranian TV the Fajr-3 missile:

"Can simultaneously hit several targets, has near stealth capabilities with a high maneuverability, pinpoint accuracy and radar avoidance features.”

Our thanks go to Stan and the crew at the Jerusalem Newswire…good work…

For some great insight into matters concerning Israel, for some terrific reporting of the issues, do yourself a huge favor and visit these blogs;

"Zionist.com" the blog of Ryan Jones


You can drop by here again and thank me for the tip later..

As if missiles through the air were not enough of a threat from Iran, today there’s a report of an underwater missile test.

The Islamic Republic News Agency reported this;

“Iran-Maneuver-Missile

Iran on Sunday successfully test fired its fastest underwater missile in the `Holy Prophet war games' northwest of Persian Gulf.

Deputy commander of the Navy Forces of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) General Ali Fadavi told Central News Bureau (Islamic Republic of Iran's Broadcasting) that the domestically made missile, called `Hut', hits its target with a maximum speed of 100 meters per second.”

The original article can be found HERE

Our thanks go to the IRNA.

It would seem with the unrest inside Iran that the clock is ticking for Mr. Ahmadinejad. Will he act quickly enough to head off the pressure from within Iran or will the pressure from the US, the UN, Israel and the wobbly kneed EU be great enough to stop him?

In any case, there isn’t time for anyone to be caught with the “look of a deer in the headlights”; otherwise innocent people are certain to get hurt.

God bless America
