President Obama tells undocumented transgender Jennicet Gutierrezas that the White House is not her house.

So President Obama silenced a heckler by telling her "This is my house", sorry, um, no. Immigrant and LGBTQ rights activist Jennicet Gutierrezas was vetted by security and was a guest of the president, to engage as a host would hope his guests might. The theme was Gay Pride! According to Obama, an invitation to the White House means you eat his hors d'oeuvres and drink his booze and shut your mouth or be thrown out. I doubt President Obama was saying anything more important than Gutierrezas, who spoke up for the plight of transgender deportees. In fact Obama misspoke. To his First Daughters he can say "you'll follow my rules when you live in my house", but to a fellow American it's not his house but OURS. 43983

Occupy was fooled by undocumented Obama Dream Activists, so were you

DENVER- Who wouldn't want to stand in solidarity with undocumented immigrants willing to stage sit-ins in Obama campaign headquarters across the country, risking arrest and certain deportation --we thought-- to demand that President Obama hear their plea? Yeah, the Dream Act is an economic draft to ensnare illegal aliens, but these "Dream Activists" spoke mainly of schooling opportunities and the prospect of legal jobs thereafter. So they locked themselves in, began hunger strikes, and left support crews outside to hold press conferences, until yesterday, when Obama announced he would cease deportations! A win-win for Obama and his Hispanic constituents. On cue, Bogeyman Romney vowed he'd reverse that order. Did you see that coming? You might have, if you'd noticed that these campaign HQ occupiers had decorated their handmade signs with Obama logos. That, and the DPD never ever rattled its sabers. You try to hold a sit-in and you'll be cited for trespass before you sit down. Denver Police were never called, and we figured it was because the Obama campaign didn't dare upset the Latino community, like they do environmentalists, labor, feminists, social justice...

Only in America….

Only in America can you have a region announcing that it has put into law a "Homeless Bill of Rights" as Rhode Island's Governor Chafee is doing! Now just exactly what 'rights' could a capitalist economy give to their multitude of wandering Homeless other than to have a job? Why make up this bogus Bill of Bullshit, when you don't grant people the right to have gainful employment? See Rhode Island Passes 'Homeless Bill Of Rights'. 34477

Justice for Anastasio Hernandez! …A new video exposes the cold blooded torture and killing of this man by ‘ICE’ Immigration cops and the subsequent cover-up

At a San Diego-Tijuana border crossing, 'Ice' handcuffed and killed a man using tasers to torture him to death, then the US government covered it all up. Why are so many of our cops and soldiers seemingly cold blooded sociopathic killers? Anastasio Hernandez-Rojas Death: Border Patrol Tasing Incident Complicated By New Footage

USA – Land of the Not so Investigated Hate Crime

As the George Zimmerman case plays out, we in the US still live in a Land of the Not Investigated, racially motivated Hate Crime. The latest Hate Crime seems to have happened just last Sunday in Arizona, and has received scant attention in the US press. See Phoenix area's Fox News' inadequate coverage 1 of 2 Border Shooting Victims in Eloy Identified for minimal info about this case. Seems that hate attacks on 'illegal aliens' are hardly worthy of coverage per our US press corps. 32702

He who is a thief should be called a thief, Carlos Slim!

Carlos Slim now sits atop the list of the world's Mr. 1% billionaires with over $69,000,000,000 wealth taken from the Mexican people. Carlos Slim tops Forbes annual rich list ...And to think that just a few years this thief prince was claiming before a judge in US court that he was being discriminated against due to the Anglo prejudice against Mexicans. The guy certainly has a lot of gall on top of his billions upon billions in dollars, stolen peso by peso from the impoverished masses of Mexico! 31185

Racist Sheriff Arpaio supposedly opens new Birther investigation

According to Mr Murdoch's paper The Globe which is like the Enquirer without the high journalistic standards. Calls him "Tough Talking Sheriff" which .. eh... You can be tough talking and still be a... you know. Apparently he's willing to spend the taxpayer money from Maricopa county, the most populous in AZ therefore the busiest crime center, and of course his own time to put forth a right wing probe, That's if, of course, he really did file charges. So this leads to yet another installment of "Hey, Minuteman, here's MY I.D.!" and making the observation that WE can ask the self-appointed judges of All Claims Of American to show us THEIR papers... AND If their papers don't satisfy us, possibly forgeries, maybe issued in Kenya, whatever, we make the rules on what Their Papers need to be in order to satisfy us... then they don't get to look at MINE. Tough cookies babe.

So, I’m calling Shenanigans.

There's a Bumper sticker out that says "My ancestors immigrated LEGALLY." Horse Shit. The only way that would be true is if Might Makes Right were an actual legal concept. The German takeover of Europe in the 30s and early 40s would be totally justified under the same doctrine that every square inch of American Soil under European dominion is "Legal". I've got Irish ancestors who came over with Lord Baltimore. Scots who got kicked out of Scotland to the penal colonies in Georgia. French who got kicked out of Acadia (now called Nova Scotia) when the British took over the management of Canada. Nobody in all of that asked ANY American permission to come over, plant the flag of whatever rinky-dinky king who kicked their asses out of Europe and just take over, and shoot anybody who objected and didn't manage to get in the first shot. One theory of Indian migration has it that the Creek Nations, Muscogee, Cherokee, Choctaw, Chikasha and Seminole, (more like swamp nations) who make up presumably all of my non-white ancestors, came from Central America about 1200 years ago. So, the questions are, did you have an ancestor on the Mayflower? And if you did,

The guard towers of Camp Amache, CO, Japanese-American internment camp

Visitors to what remains of the WWII-era Granada Relocation Center located on Highway 50 past Lamar, are tempted to conclude that the remote location was isolation enough to restrict the movement of its 7,000 Japanese-American internees. Gone are all 560 buildings except their concrete foundations; the few remaining photographs depict a vast layout of spartan barracks, playing host to ordinary civilian lives, minus the atmosphere of incarceration. Were there cyclone fences and watch towers? The answer should not surprise you. Of course. Camp Amache was ringed by the usual multiple perimeters of prison fences, including six watch towers manned by military police, who were there, it was explained, for the internees' protection. I think plans to further restore Amache need to begin with the security fortifications. If such blights on American history as these race-based detention centers are memorialized in the hope that our nation not do it again, it dishonors our victims, and blunts the lesson, not to illustrate our heavy hand. 26982

Surprise, cop who murdered Oscar Grant set free already

But somebody who fights back, maybe stops the Killer Kop Klansman from murdering him, would still do a life sentence upon capture and conviction, for "aggravated Assault". Pigs get to kill anybody they please. This right on the heels of Alabama, another Historically Racist State, being put on Minority Lockdown status with a Racial Profiling "show your papers" Law. The punk-ass Minutemen and other Klan groups say it's not racism, they lie about a lot of other stuff too, so no change there. They're not merely Racists, liars for saying their not Racists, but also Cowards because they're afraid their racist actions might be rightfully perceived as the Racism it truly is. So, next they'll be able to demand of any person who isn't Mr John Q LilyWhite to prove, to their irrational hate filled satisfaction, that he's legally a citizen. Or, they'll just force him to the sidewalk, put a gun in his back and draw the trigger, and if anybody ever prosecutes them for it they'll get the minimum sentence for "involuntary" MAN slaughter. Just like their Koward Kop Klansman in Oakland.

Bob Holmes said he cares for Homeless PEOPLE

...but that homeless women breed like rabbits. And while I wasn't there at the rally at UCCS or however the hell they put it, it strikes me that it's incredibly unlikely that he used the PEOPLE noun to modify the "homeless" adjective. I've noticed a tendency among the Repub/Tea Potty "leaders" here to forget that part. So, Bob, it's like this bubba. Seriously. Your Pomar Foundation welcomed George W into town for a Blasphemy Session yesterday. Guess you're a supporter of his policies, yes? See, he and Your Party don't just kill people with bullets and bombs. Although I suspect that's your prefered method. No, they also kill people by manipulating economic systems to favor a very few wealthy at the expense of a very huge large humongous outrageously big majority of the people, many of whom suffer from such diseases of Society as a result thereof, as Homelessness. Your Heroic Lion-Heart Bush made and indeed, as a consultant still makes, for instance Mexico into a nightmare state. His puppet dictators there have, at the insistence of YOUR Right Wing fellow-travelers, destroyed Mexico's economy using the same techniques they're applying to the economy of the United States today.

“Red Dawn” a classic? Gag me…

I was researching why (I already know, just looking for confirmation) this piece of cinematic sewage keeps replaying on certain channels.To drum up war business of course. But I came across a review on a Right Wing website that the "classic" Red Dawn and Extreme Prejudice and a couple of other Death-Porn flicks by the same production company only show on "conservative" Cable channels and no MSM channel would touch them. "Lefty Censorship". How about this scenario instead? They sucked when they first came out and they've been sucking ever since. Assassination and "Kill Immigrant" flicks belong in the same genre as the "Six Days in Fallujah" and "Call of Duty" porn games where the players or viewers get to masturbate to images of people being murdered. "Red Dawn" and "Extreme Prejudice" were made to bolster the Reagan/Bush Administrations' use of the Murdering Contra Mercenary Terrorists against the People of Nicaragua. Meanwhile REAL soldiers gave me this review of it, back then... 22159

How come Pottery Barn rules don’t apply to Haiti?

When Tony posted nearly three years ago (!) about how shocking conditions in Haiti had become, it was a magnet for people saying the starving kids pictures (from Medicins sans frontiers, internationally respected medical aid agency, just not so much here in America) were recycled pictures from Ethiopia 3, 2 and one decade ago. Then when that was refuted, and before they raised that Stupid Response again, the people of Haiti were blamed for their own misfortunes. As though their LEADERS had actually been empowered by popular vote instead of installed, against the expressed will of the People, by and for the profit of American Corporate Hegemony. Alternating with French Hegemony until the AmeriCorp bought out the French. We broke it, we supposedly bought it, right? That's the one of the irRationale for staying in Iraq and Afghanistan. (rationale is both plural and single, I checked, you didn't, kiss off) Of course, it's not the American Corporations who are Paying the bills "we" ran up by breaking all the pottery, although they seem to be getting quite a lot of public funding to manipulate the Public Army and the Public intelligence community and the public "rebuilding" campaign, which mostly consists of taking

Celebrity Leaders of the Anti-Peasant Crusade

Why is Lou Dobbs considered an "expert" on Immigration, but not Colbert? Now they're barking because Colbert testified in Congress as an "expert witness". And say that his only expertise was that he's a "Celebrity" Say whut? The problem they're having with his expertise isn't the shock to the senses that your first day of Field Labor is to ANYBODY. (It's why the Founding Fathers "hired" slaves to do it for them, because let's face it, if George Washington or Madison or Jefferson had to go out and cut their own damn tobacco and sugar cane (cotton wasn't a cash crop until later) they would have starved. Labor built the fortunes of the "Founding Fathers" the same way Labor builds the fortunes of the Capitalists today.) But they're claiming that his "expert" status was somehow due to his status as a Celebrity. So, what now, do they stop listening to that stupid John Wayne Record about how honorable it is to join the Army, travel to exotic places, meet interesting people, and Kill Them? 20078

Repeal DADT and enact the Dream Act because the Army needs more soldiers

A thousand times NO you ignorant dupes! The ACLU wants me to support the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell, so that more gays can join the military. Otherwise-progressives are lobbying for the Dream Act, so that the children of undocumented immigrants can join the US military. Let me also warn you I oppose Affirmative Action for the School of the Americas torture curriculum. And equal pay for female armed-drone specialists. DADT is the homosexual's exclusive escape clause for war crimes complicity. Is this an LGBT rights campaign to assert that gay soldiers are dumb enough for the military?

PA Homeland Security Chief: Burning Hate Flag = Terrorism

That's right, folks, according to the PA Homeland Security Privatized Terror Alert System, National Burn The Confederate Flag Day, a protest against the TeaTard Racist "patriot" party, is an act of Terrorism. Meanwhile the TeaTards inciting Mosque Burning, Scripture Burning, Assaults and even Murders on behalf of their Racial Purist Agenda, doesn't raise a red "flag" with the Private Pig Group. 19787

Former Catholic Priest exposes Immigration Plot against U.S.!

Charles Chiniquy, former Priest, EXPOSES the shocking plot to take over America for the Roman Church using Immigration from predominantly Catholic countries. The book, published by Chick Publications, details the dread Papish Plot, direct from the mouth of a Parish Priest from Canada who, in such a high exalted position knew exactly everything that went on in the Vatican... "50 years in the 'church' of Rome" 19273

DumFox Noose beating the Racist Anti- Immigrant Drum, what a surprise.

But of course it's not "racist" to give known Klan-affiliated PIG groups like the Arizona cops the power to arrest people who can't produce proof of citizenship, based solely on the appearance of the people being arrested. The Border Patrol has harrassed me on several occasions, sometimes at Gunpoint, for the "crime" of "looking mex" but of course, the Racist Arizona (and soon, the Racist Colorado) Pigs would somehow forbear from arresting people for "looking mex", even though the ordinance specifically states that they can do so any time their Piggy little hearts desire. 18512

To GOL! or not to GOL! that was the question.

How would it have been played out in the press had the Team America gone on to at least a higher level of victory? We've already suffered through an anti-Immigrant slam against major league baseball, with all the appropriate "OUTRAGE! (copyright 1993-2010 Fox News Networks)" about Major League players getting visas and work permits when immigrating from Cuba and (gasp!) Mexico. Not any rage against any favoritism but the fact that people PEOPLE from Cuba and Mexico were given work permits in the first place. How dare they let more of THEM infiltrate America! Not much crying about the "patriotic" symbolism of some of our best baseball players being from places like Costa Rica. So how would it play out that a team built on the skills of Immigrants took the U.S. to a World Cup win? 18302

A year later, Briseņa Flores still dead, Minutemen still unpunished.

That would include the three trigger pullers, and also their accomplices, including their Fellow Travellers in the Ku Klux Klan, the American National Socialist White Person's Party, the Tea Party and the Republican Party. The listed groups have common leadership and even at the Astroturf Roots level, common members. This RACIST murder of two Americans, one of them a CHILD of 9 years, is being denied as such, by the Tea Party and their ilk... but it's THEIR racism that enables murders and other hate crimes. The Hate Speech of the Republican and Tea Party spokesPukes at Fox News. One of their highly paid liars actually ran for Vice President recently. To celebrate the anniversary of the event, albeit a week and a half late, Racist Border Patrol THUGS murdered a teenager in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, firing from the "American" side of the border. 17908

Can’t Trust Goobers, part 2: Lettuce Spray

Another outbreak of e-coli in lettuce traced so far back to farms in Arizona. This is very nearly the scenario from summer before last, with tomatoes and Jalapeņo peppers. That was blamed on Illegal Aliens pooping in the fields. Had to be "illegals" you know, because American Citizens, not only doesn't our shit stink, it's impossible for it to be toxic as well. Which segues neatly into the Other, More Likely, scenario: in the dry southwest most of the arable land and with irrigation, is near the cities, for one reason only. Several in fact, but WATER is king in the desert. Since every available supply of water has more human habitations around it than it can adequately support, the cause of e-coli and other Intestinal Nasties probably would be the Deregulated, Privatized, "free" Market Sewage Treatment measures in the neighboring townships. 16664

Update on Times Square Poseur… Smile for the camera!

As predicted, the Anti-Immigrant faction of DumFox Nation have pounced on the immigrant status... actually, long time naturalized citizenship, of the Alleged Taliban.   More and more I get the feeling that ICE and DHS set this up as a False Flag to end all False Flags. Hired a swarthy looking fellow chosen at random. The picture of him at the Fireworks Stand in Pennsylvania, for instance, turns to the camera and smiles... 16546
