People for the American Way, TPM begin personal destruction campaign against Frank Ricci (what you can do) - 07/11/09

McClatchy reports that People for the American Way and perhaps other groups are "quietly" beginning a "politics of personal destruction"/"Joe the Plumber"-style campaign against Frank Ricci, the firefighter who'll be testifying at the Sonia Sotomayor con

Obama reiterates Fairness Doctrine opposition; concentrate on his plans that would have the same effect - 02/18/09

Fox News asked the Obama administration whether they want to bring back the Fairness Doctrine, and spokesman Ben LaBolt said (link): "As the president stated during the campaign, he does not believe the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated."

Justin Rood/ABC: no worries about voting fraud! (Dem-linked experts say; ACORN) - 10/17/08

Justin Rood of ABC News offers "McCain Acorn Fears Overblown/Charges of Voter Fraud Are Out of Proportion to Reality, They Say" (link). As it turns out, the "they" refers to three sources: a Barack Obama contributor, a former director of the leftwing, illegal immigration-supporting People for the American Way, and FactCheck. No others sources are allowed to weigh in.

Brave New Films immigration documentary will lie to you - 01/23/08

Robert Greenwald's Brave New Films is apparently going to make one or more documentaries about immigration, attempting to strike at those who support enforcement of our laws.

March 10 Committee - 10/30/07

Also known as the March 10 Movement, March 10 Coalition, Diez de Marzo Committee. Home page at movimiento10demarzo.org At their site, they declare their unconditional support for Elvira Arellano as well as all other "immigrants" who are in the process of being deported. They also call on all those immigrants who are being deported to apply for asylum and to seek asylum in local churches. They also oppose employer sanctions and programs to check the SSNs of employees.

Senate immigration amnesty bill: the supporters - 05/21/07

Outside a number of Senators, there aren't too many who support the Senate's immigration amnesty/"guest" worker plan. This post will keep track of them, and I urge everyone to hold those below accountable whether the bill passes or not. I also urge everyone to keep calling Congress, but, even more importantly, follow the steps previously outlined to help stop amnesty. The supporters: * Of course: president Bush, Sens. John McCain and Ted Kennedy * From "Few senators support the illegals bill" (link): Sen. Arlen Specter, one of the Republicans who helped craft the deal, said it's the best they...

STRIVEing for amnesty: the Flake/Guitierrez "Security Through Regularized Immigration and a Vibrant Economy" Act - 03/22/07

We're seemingly moments away from the release of the Jeff Flake/[[Luis Guitierrez]] "STRIVE Act", a massive amnesty for illegal aliens. "STRIVE" stands for the Orwellian-named "Security Through Regularized Immigration and a Vibrant Economy". Please contact your representatives and stress your opposition to the scheme, and if you find anyone promoting it do your best to discredit them. The far-lefties have anticipated the bill, with the Asian American Justice Center "encouraged" and, not to be outdone, the American Immigration Lawyers Association "enthusiastically welcomes" it. Turning to...

Ramos/Compean: who's on the Bush administration's side? - 02/08/07

I have a feeling that it won't be too very long before even more truth comes out about the case of the two Border Patrol agents (Ramos/Compean) who strongly appear to have been railroaded by their own government. So, let's take a look at the short, select list of some of those who've supported the Bush administration's side of things:

LULAC beginning amnesty/immigration "reform" push - 01/09/07

The League of United Latin American Citizens, the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, the Hispanic Federation, and America Votes are starting an astroturf campaign to push the Dems into support immigration "reform", aka amnesty. America Votes (take

NAU apologists - 11/24/06

[List below updated 12/11/07] Recently, Rep. Tom Tancredo was quoted as saying this: "People have to understand what we're talking about here. The president of the United States is an internationalist... He is going to do what he can to create a place where the idea of America is just that โ€“ it's an idea. It's not an actual place defined by borders. I mean this is where this guy is really going... I know this is dramatic โ€“ or maybe somebody would say overly dramatic โ€“ but I'm telling you, that everything I see leads me to believe that this whole idea of the North American Union, it's not...

MALDEF, ACLU, PFAW sue Escondido over illegal immigration ordinance - 11/03/06

Escondido, California (near San Diego) is one of the cities that have passed "Hazleton-style" ordinances, and that's resulted in a predictable legal challenge from various far-left, illegal immigration-supporting non-profit organizations.

ACLU, PFAW, businesses sue Riverside NJ over immigration law - 10/19/06

Riverside, New Jersey is one of the cities that have adopted "Hazleton-style" ordinances, and like other cities they're being sued by far-left, pro-illegal immigration organizations such as the ACLU. While this does cost those cities money, and the far-left foundations that support those far-left organizations have very deep pockets, at the end of the day the ACLU and their fellow travelers can only file so many suits. In the current case, one of the ACLU's helpers is People for the "American" Way. Let's hope that their legal filings are a bit more precise than their misleading press...

Darrell Issa, PFAW, Huerta, Catholic leaders, immigration town hall meetings - 08/03/06

Yesterday yet another town hall meeting on immigration was held, and this time they let in a whopping 200 people. (I foolishly tried to attend the last one they held; I won't make that same mistake again.) The SDUT devotes most of this story to discussing the thoughts of those who favor illegal immigration, but an important comment from Darrell Issa does get mentioned: Meantime, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista, the grandson of Lebanese immigrants, accused Mexico of threatening America's long tradition of legal immigration because the vast majority of illegal immigrants here come from that...

Miami Herald "endorses indentured servitude" - 03/22/04

That's what the Stein Report says regarding the Miami Herald's editorial supporting the AgJobs bill ('A win-win for growers, farmworkers, America'). That bill would provide an amnesty for half a million illegal aliens. As history shows, amnesties simply lead to more illegal immigration. One amnesty leads to more illegal immigration, which requires another amnesty, which leads to more illegal immigration, repeat. As for the claim that the editorial supports indentured servitude, judge for yourself: ...AgJobs sets up a process by which illegal immigrants already working in agriculture could...
