Brooklyn DA: Haitian Crack Addicts Make Brooklyn, NYC, USA Stronger

7 07 2017

Brooklyn

WSJ about various urban and illegal alien-friendly prosecutors soft-soaping certain crimes so that the defendants don’t get on ICE’s radar:

One of [Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez] inspirations, he said, was a Brooklyn man arrested for being unescorted in an apartment building. At the precinct, police officers discovered the man had a small amount of crack cocaine. In court, the man, a green-card holder from Haiti, pleaded guilty to drug possession. When he tried to come home after visiting Haiti, border officials wouldn’t let him return.

One of the upshots otherwise is that Jeff Sessions is starting to grumble that treating immigrants, legal and illegal, better than citizens, ceteris paribus, for the expressed purpose of protecting them from deportation, amounts to an unconstitutional inequality.

Latinos key to U.S. economic growth…(snip)…

…according to a study released Thursday by the Latino Donors Collaborative…

That was so easy that I was able to get it in before I head off to church this morning.

Latino Donor Collaborative.  Hmmm.  Sounds to me like a PR front for the cheap labor lobby.  Or, if you want to look at it another way, a bunch of white or close-to-white people with Spanish surnames using themselves as propaganda to convince us that it’s okay to open the floodgates and let in every Indio that wants to pour in.  The LDC is based in Beverly Hills, mysteriously, not Boyle Heights, so it’s also tempting to think that certain people think their domestic help is too expensive.





With These Types, We Will Always Be Cursed

I’m sure there were people who were arguing over how many angels could fit on the head of a pin while the Ottoman Turks were over the horizon on their way to the gates of Vienna.

I’m sure there’s the temptation to think “bought off.”  No, his problem is that he’s just a straight up ideologue.





Potemkin Lawsuit

30 06 2017

Austin

DC:

A group of 10 Republican state attorneys general and one governor are threatening to sue the Trump administration if it does not rescind Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the Obama executive action that granted amnesty to more than one million undocumented immigrants.

“We respectfully request that the Secretary of Homeland Security phase out the DACA program,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote in a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday.

Not at face value.

The Democrats and the left have made an art of this Potemkin lawfare.  A Democrat White House will on the sly facilitate a lawsuit against itself on a given matter, begging behind the scenes for various liberal and niche interest groups, NGOs, LDFs and local and state governments to sue them.  Then they’ll shop the thing to a sympathetic liberal-Democrat Federal judge. The Democrat Party’s AG/DOJ/SG will mysteriously “bungle” their case, wink wink.  That way, the policy change that all parties involve really want will happen under the “serious” imprimatur of a court order, rather than the result of the exercise of plenary political power, thereby dampening outrage and opposition.

This is how we ended up with the repudiation of the PACE exam for Federal civil service hiring and replacing it with an affirmative action friendly system.  In its final weeks, before Reagan came in, the Carter Administration pulled this trick.  The Pigford Settlement (the fake black “farmers”) also happened the same way, that started in the Clinton Administration.  The Obama Administration did the same with DOMA.

All that I think is happening here is that Trump and Sessions are taking up the same trick.  I think through back channels, they’re begging people to sue them over DACA, and got ten Republican state AGs and one Republican Governor to sign up. Remember, if this thing makes it to SCOTUS, will be a SCOTUS that now has Neil Gorsuch, and, presumably, by the time it gets it, maybe one or two more Trump appointees.

The difference is that the Democrats and the left, as pioneers of this tactic, will certainly know someone else running it when they see it, and therefore, not restrain their outrage machine.





These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Self-deportation and family reunification, all rolled into one.

Just so you know, the Mexican government, especially its foreign relations agency, has a program, run through its American consulates, that reminds Mexicans born in the United States to two Mexican-born parents that they are also Mexican by jus sanguinis just as much as they are “American” by jus soli, and seek to get such American-born Mexicans to register officially as Mexican at the consulate offices.  So, not only do we have self-deportation and family reunification, as a bonus, we can throw in accurate recognition of ancestry.

 





White Progressives Are the New Race Realists, Part (Insert a Really Large Number Here)

She deleted her original tweet, but there’s no unringing a bell on Ye Olde Internets.

Give a white urban progressive enough rope and enough time, and they’ll wind up sounding implicitly like your ever-hatin’ blogmeister.





You Chose Diversity

19 06 2017

Glasgow, Scotland

Once upon a time, they asked us not to piss in the showers.  While the drains could handle it, doing so was considered poor form.

Then they asked us not to jack off in the showers.  Because the drains definitely cannot handle our jizz.

Turns out those were the good ole days.

Because Scotland chose diversity and multiculturalism, a supposedly top flight school in Glasgow now has to ask students and even staff not to shit in the showers.

Except…that’s the point.  You chose diversity, so you’re just going to have to deal with all that mess.  It won’t be long until complaining about shit in the showers will be “hate speech.”  Such as it is, just this e-mail from the school reminding students and staff not to shit in the showers is considered controversial.
