BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns, and Guts Comades! has an interesting post on Nationwide Protests July 18-19 to Oppose Illegal Immigration. Here is how it starts.
The so-called Immigration reform bill swirling around Congress is a dangerous bill according to Mark Levin. It includes amnesty for everyone arriving prior to 2014. Congress wants to hood wink us once more. Precious little is being disclosed. Join the protests Friday and Saturday and let’s send Congress a message. We turned it in 2010, let’s do it again. All of the House is up for reelection this fall.
Rep. Henry Cuellar and Sen. John Cornyn have introduced legislation into the House and Senate, respectively.
The biggest issue with Rep. Cueller and Sen. Cornyn’s bill is that it includes Rep. Michael McCaul’s border security bill almost in its entirety. Rep. McCaul’s original bill, H.R.1417, would actually weaken border security, not strengthen it, in several ways. First, current law requires DHS to take all actions to achieve operational control of the entire border, but McCaul’s bill only requires DHS to submit a plan to achieve operational control of high-traffic areas and along the Southern border, ignoring much of the Northern land border and all maritime borders. Second, the bill contrasts with existing law, which already requires 100% operational control of the entire international land and maritime borders. McCaul’s bill defines “operational control” as apprehending 90% of illegal crossings as determined by DHS. (continued here)
As the post continues, what is the solution? We stage protests. I think protesting illegal immigration is a good idea, but we already know the result. The corporate news media will either ignore the protests or paint the protesters as racist extremists. Therefore, we also need more focused, long range plans.That would involve strategies like the following:
- Get our children out of the public school system. Instead of educating children, the public school system is designed to provide jobs to unionized Democrats. Hence we end up with poorly educated adults who don’t understand either their religious or political heritage.
- Stop rewarding politicians who promise us other people’s money. We must vote the BUMS OUT! We need leaders who love America and want to protect our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
- Campaign for a Convention of the States to amend the Constitution. For an example of an organization pushing the idea, check out ConventionOfStates.com and this Forbes article, Mark Levin’s Game Changer: Using The Constitution To Arrest Federal Drift.
To beat the corporate news media, we must go directly to our neighbors. We must show each other what can be done, and we must make America’s government once again small and mostly a local matter.
Want more details? Here is a debate on a Convention of the States, Conservatives pro and con.
Is a Convention of the States a bad idea? Ultimately, that will depend upon us. If we do our homework, and we make our expectations abundantly clear, we can pressure our leaders to enact specific Constitutional amendments. If we do not do our homework and fight for the process, bad men and women will take over the convention, and it will be a disaster.
Unfortunately, bad men and women are already corrupting government. To stop them, we must use EVERY tool we have at our disposal. In a no holds barred fight, we must not tie our hands behind our backs. We must go on the offensive and tie our opponents up in knots.
