California Voter's Guide - 11/04/16

Welcome to the Official 24Ahead California Voter's Guide:

Donald Trump needs to concentrate on immigration, not personal issues - 10/10/16

After the release of the Entertainment Tonight tape, Donald Trump has decided to go full-on Breitbart News, concentrating on Hillary Clinton's and Bill Clinton's personal issues and various scandals/"scandals" rather than things that are actually importan

Dan Merica of CNN is not a journalist - 06/06/16

Dan Merica is a producer for CNN who completely fails at journalism. Real journalists ask the powerful tough questions about their policies; Merica refuses to do that and instead is more a courtier. For instance, here's a question Merica asked Hillary Clinton earlier today:

Tamara Keith of NPR is no journalist - 06/06/16

Tamara Keith is a White House correspondent for NPR but she completely fails at journalism. Real journalists ask the powerful tough questions about their policies; Keith refuses to do that and instead is more a courtier. For instance, here's a question Keith asked Hillary Clinton earlier today:

Did the Hillary Clinton campaign threaten Laugh Factory to take a comedy video down? - 11/19/15

According to Judicial Watch (link): In what appears to be a first for a serious presidential contender, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is going after five comedians who made fun of the former Secretary of State in standup skits at a popular Hollywood comedy club.

Obama, Democrat, far-left opposition to Arizona immigration law giving comfort to Mexico - 06/23/10

Sara Miller Llana of the Christian Science Monitor lets us know that "Mexico sees silver lining in Arizona immigration law" (link). You might call it giving comfort (if not aid), but that's only because you're an American: From the view south of the border, times could not be worse in terms of America's disregard for Mexico. But a curious thing is happening. Mexicans are also seeing a new level of American discontent percolating over US immigration initiatives, much of it coming from unexpected corners. “I know that there are many Americans for the law, but there are many against it too,”...

DOJ may challenge Arizona immigration law: what to do - 06/18/10

Earlier this month in an interview with TV reporter in Ecuador, Hillary Clinton stated that the Department of Justice will be challenging the new Arizona immigration law in court. I was a bit skeptical since she's not the DOJ and she might have been basing it on an assumption rather than knowledge. However, CBS News now offers this (link): Now a senior administration official tells CBS News that the federal government will indeed formally challenge the law when Justice Department lawyers are finished building the case. The official said Justice is still working on building the case. Contacted...

"Temporary" Protected Status for Haitian illegal aliens pushed by profiteers (Haiti earthquake) - 01/14/10

[TPS has been approved; see the update below] Yesterday, Janet Napolitano of the Department of Homeland Security suspended repatriations of illegal aliens from Haiti; that makes some sense as long as it's actually temporary. What doesn't make sense are the calls from some to give "Temporary Protected Status" in the U.S. to Haitian illegal aliens. The word "temporary" is generally a misnomer as that status is renewed over and over. TPS would be an infected band-aid that wouldn't fix Haiti's structural problems and in some cases would result in importing Haiti's problems into the U.S. It would...

"The Myth of 90 Percent: Only a Small Fraction of Guns in Mexico Come From U.S." - 04/04/09

William La Jeunesse and Maxim Lott of Fox News offer this (video report here):

Pelosi doubles down! Family separating raids are "not the American way"; illegal aliens make U.S. "more American" - 03/19/09

Earlier today, Nancy Pelosi spoke at the U.S.-Mexico Border Issues Conference and did not back down from her earlier comments in which she said that immigration raids that result in family separation are "un-American" (her press release here). In effect, Pelosi seeks to replace our current immigration laws with a "Pelosi Rule": if you come here illegally and have a child, you get to stay. Needless to say, this would have the impact of greatly encouraging future illegal immigration. And, the comprehensive immigration reform she supports supposedly mandates increased enforcement; does anyone...

Barbara Boxer wants to ratify U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (Hillary Clinton) - 02/08/09

From this: The U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), which opponents say could destroy American sovereignty by imposing international rulings on American law, could reach the Senate within 60 days. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) says she wants a 60-day timeframe for the State Department to complete its review so the Senate can move toward ratification of the UNCRC. During the Senate Confirmation hearing between Boxer and UN Ambassador-designate Susan Rice held on January 15, 2009, Boxer told Rice the UNCRC would protect "the most vulnerable people of society." Opponents vehemently...

Illegal immigration-supporting Harold Koh: legal adviser to State Department? - 02/05/09

From this: Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh is a leading contender to be appointed legal adviser to the Department of State, two people familiar with the selection process told the [Yale Daily News]... In that position, Koh - a former assistant secretary of state and a leading expert on international law - would serve as principal counselor on all legal matters to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton LAW ’73... Meanwhile: Koh's department pledged to defend New Haven against lawsuits related to that city's plan to distribute city ID cards to their residents, including illegal aliens...

Hillary Clinton: not eligible to be Secretary of State? (emoluments, Judicial Watch) - 01/29/09

Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit on behalf of State Department employee David Rodearmel claiming that Hillary Clinton isn't eligible to head that department (link): The lawsuit maintains that Mrs. Clinton is constitutionally ineligible to serve as Secretary of State and that Mr. Rodearmel cannot be forced to serve under the former U.S. Senator, as it would violate the oath he took as a Foreign Service Officer in 1991 to "support and defend" and "bear true faith and allegiance" to the Constitution of the United States. Under the "Emoluments" or "Ineligibility" clause of the U.S....

World Economic Forum (Davos) pushing global governance, global TV, Law of Sea Treaty - 01/27/09

The World Economic Forum will be meeting in Davos starting on the 28th, and see this for all the details on one of their key documents as well as the media sources that haven't disclosed the fact that they're sponsors as well as much, much more. Here's a snippet: "The Global Agenda 2009" report says that "sovereign states do not adequately address problems reaching across borders" and that "international taxation" may be needed to generate the "additional resources" for "global governance... ...As current global governance problems come from market failures, sovereign failures and...

How close was Leon Panetta to the Institute for Policy Studies? - 01/07/09

Leon Panetta - Barack Obama's choice to be director of the CIA - supposedly had/has links to or perhaps even membership in the radical Institute for Policy Studies, an alleged Communist front organization. However, a search fails to turn up much beyond noise. If anyone has credible information - such as with contemporaneous news reports or IPS literature - please leave a comment. More on IPS here and here (1977 Heritage Foundation report), supposed Clinton links here (also here) And, this page prefaces a list including Panetta with this: Congressional supporters of the IPS have included many...

Supposed declaration on Bill Clinton paid off by Marc Rich (pardon, Eric Holder confirmation) - 11/23/08

I don't exactly believe this, but there's a picture here of a supposed declaration from an unnamed witness describing how commodities trader Marc Rich set up a $250 million fund to assure that he was pardoned by president Bill Clinton. For those whose memories of those hazy, crazy days of the (first) Clinton administration are hazy, there's a description of the case here.

"Latinos push for Cabinet posts": NCLR, MALDEF, NALEO trying to embed supporters in Obama administration - 11/07/08

"Latinos" want to be named to positions in the Barack Obama administration. Actually, it appears they want a quota system. And, it's not really "Latinos" as a group, but the familiar far-left pressure groups such as the NCLR, MALDEF, and NALEO. The second has an indirect link to the Mexican government, and the last has a direct link. The ethnic boosting "reporter" Gebe Martinez of the Politico offers "Latinos push for Cabinet posts" (link). Here's the quota bit: Weeks before Barack Obama won the presidency, he met privately in Washington with his former Democratic rival, Sen. Hillary...

Obama, McCain, Clinton at LULAC convention (illegal immigration supporters; reconquista quote) - 07/07/08

Barack Obama, John McCain, and even Hillary Clinton will all be speaking at this year's convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), an illegal immigration-supporting group that was once patriotic but has since been radicalized. As shown by the attendees discussed below, the convention will be a nexus of those who do not support what's in the best interests of the U.S. For example, here's a 2007 quote from their national treasurer Jaime Martinez, who'll also be appearing at one of their workshops:

Dolores Huerta says we can't enforce immigration laws, promotes demographic hegemony (ask Hillary Clinton) - 03/29/08

United Farm Workers of America co-founder Dolores Huerta - also a co-chair of the Hillary Clinton campaign (link) - gave a speech straight out of the Balkans (or other places) on Thursday at San Bernardino Valley College in Southern California (link). It'd be great if someone somewhere could go to a Hillary Clinton appearance and ask her to denounce the following statements. I'm not expecting anyone to do that, but it'd be great if someone could prove me wrong. "We didn't cross the border," the revered immigrant and farm worker advocate told an enthusiastic crowd of mostly college students...

Eric Hananoki/Media Matters tries pretending that McCain differs from Hillary and Obama on immigration - 03/26/08

Eric Hananoki of Media Matters for America offers "Chicago Tribune falsely claimed Clinton, Obama, and McCain "essentially agree" on immigration" (mediamatters.org/items/200803250002): Summary: In an article on immigration as a campaign issue, the Chicago Tribune reported that Sens. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John McCain "essentially agree on the need for an overhaul of U.S. Immigration law that would combine increased border enforcement with a new guest-worker program and measures to permit the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants already in the country to eventually apply for...

"Civil Rights Act of 2008" admits illegal aliens "undermine the living standards and working conditions of all Americans" (Kennedy, Clinton, Obama) - 03/07/08

From our "Isn't it Ironic" file comes the "Civil Rights Act of 2008", brainchild of Senator Ted Kennedy (S.2554, link). Among no doubt many other things, it seeks to close a defense that employers can use when an illegal alien is fired and sues for back pay.

Disgrace: CNN Democratic debate February 21, 2008 - 02/21/08

I won't be live-blogging it, but I can tell already that tonight's Democratic debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will be a disgrace. Some part of that is due to the fact that one of the questioners is Jorge Ramos of Univision. He's not only a supporter of cultural separatism, he's not a citizen - by choice - despite having lived here for over a decade.

Black and Brown debate features childish race card tricks (Richardson as Hillary's VP?) - 12/02/07

The "Iowa Brown and Black Forum" was held yesterday. Edwards gave a shout out to Obama and said he wants to raise the minimum wage to $9.50; B. Hussein Obama agreed. Then, the card games began, with Obama saying:

Vicente Fox: FTAA common currency (Amero), Hillary for president, Bill Richardson, driver's licenses, lies about heathcare... - 10/11/07

On Monday's Larry King show, former Mexican president Vicente Fox: * Said that the Free Trade Agreement of the Americans (FTAA; called in Spanish ACLA) on which he worked with president Bush was to, long-term, include a common "Latin American" currency. Since that agreement would apply to the U.S., the currency would apply here as well... * Promoted immigration from Mexico, "guest" workers, and NAFTA... * Lied about U.S. citizens not paying the healthcare costs for illegal aliens... * Agreed with Felipe Calderon's claim that "Mexico does not stop at its border"... * Promoted driver'...

Meet Fabian Nunez, Hillary Clinton's campaign co-chair - 05/12/07

On this uninteresting April 30 video (youtube.com/watch?v=kUvnyf8qzk8), you can see Hillary Clinton introduced by California Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, one of her campaign's co-chairs. Meanwhile, back in the 90's, Nunez was just a bit more radical than that video might suggest. On this video (youtube.com/watch?v=FgbCB8QlQWw) from an anti-Proposition 187 rally in Los Angeles: Fabian Nunez is seen on stage introducing Juan Jose Gutierrez of the SEIU to make a speech to the crowd. To the right stands a Mexican trumpet band. Behind the stage is a large colonial-era American flag, signifying a...

Citizenship Promotion Act of 2007 (Barack Obama) - 03/09/07

On Wednesday, Sen. Barack Obama introduced the "Citizenship Promotion Act of 2007". This important story was overshadowed by the most likely unimportant story about his stock holdings [1]. The CPA could be described as a "New Democrats Initiative/Funding Source for Possibly Foreign-Linked Pro-Illegal Immigration Groups" bill, and perhaps some reporters should have asked Obama and his co-horts about that.

Illegal immigration even Victorians can discuss - 03/10/06

A lot of people in the chattering classes are afraid to discuss illegal immigration because of the racial component. However, even the most Victorian "liberal" should feel free to discuss illegal immigration by the Irish, right?

Dick Morris: Hillary can win - 01/11/05

Dick Morris: Hillary Clinton can't win - oh, and pigs can fly Those who would stick their heads in the sand and maintain that Sen. Hillary Clinton could never be elected president are in for a rude shock, according to the latest data from the Fox News survey. In a poll taken last month, Americans said they felt the New York Democrat was "qualified to be president of the United States" by 59-34 percent. Clinton showed strength among all traditional Democratic voters, winning the approval of Sen. John Kerry supporters by 80-13, blacks by 80-8, all women by 64-29 and unmarried women by 69-24...

When Libertarians attack! - 12/13/04

In response to the WashTimes article mentioned in the last post ("Hillary goes conservative on immigration", link), Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine offers the following (reason . com/hitandrun/2004/12/hillarys_nation.shtml).

Hillary: 'Secure our borders' - 07/27/04

During the Clinton administration, the INS became a virtual recruiting drive for the Democratic party, as described here. So, when Hillary Clinton remarked in her speech yesterday that we should secure our borders, I laughed a bit. However, there's always the possibility that if they say it enough, they might actually mean it. Unfortunately, the non-liberal media will not press her to fully explain her comment and provide details of what we should be doing.
