So, Democrats…Let’s Talk Money in Politics, Shall We?

So, Democrats…Let’s Talk Money in Politics, Shall We?

Democrats just love talking night and day about getting the big money out of politics.  They constantly rail about elections being “bought” by “special interest groups” and rich donors (they love to demonize the Koch brothers and Wall Street).  Their cure for the big money in politics is often “public financing”, meaning government support of political candidates (don’t they care that some of their money might be used to finance campaigns by those filthy Republicans?).

This week, there was a well-publicized and analyzed special election in the state of Georgia, to replace Republican Tom Price who left to join the Trump Administration.  The Democrat candidate was a first-time youngster, who didn’t even live in the district he claimed to want to represent.  His opponent was a well-regarded, experienced local candidate, with lots of name recognition.

The Democrats figured that this was a good chance to confirm that everyone hates Trump, and are most anxious to replace Republicans with Democrats so they can take over the House in the 2018 midterm elections.  In pursuit of that goal, prominent Democrat celebrities held fund-raisers and made commercials in support of Jon Ossoff.  The party raised over 23 million dollars for their candidate.  Now, that sounds like Big Money to me!  The Democrats out-spent the Republicans three to one in this election.  Here is the result.  How about those long faces on the CNN “reporters” on Tuesday night?

iu

They don’t look very happy, do they?  TWENTY-THREE MILLION DOLLARS spent, 90% of it from outside the state of Georgia!  And they still lost.  In fact, there have been a total of five special elections recently to replace officials who joined the Trump Administration, and not one Democrat won.  Congratulations to Karen Handel, new Representative from the 6th District of Georgia.

The sound that could be heard from many conservative households this week?   BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

The Trump/Sessions Department of Justice just did “Justice”!

The Trump/Sessions Department of Justice just did “Justice”!

The DOJ has communicated to Congress that it is ending the Obama-era corporate shakedown regime, where it forced corporations who paid huge settlements to resolve conflicts relating to the financial crisis, to pay (liberal) third-party organizations as part of those settlements. Billions of dollars were siphoned off to various Obama special-interest groups, in violation of the Constitution.

Well, those days are over. Congress is working on legislation to outlaw that sort of executive-branch misbehavior. Jeff Sessions, in one of his very best actions to date, has ended the Obama slush-funds.

Sessions said the money should, instead, go to the Treasury Department or victims.

“When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people—not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,” Sessions said in a statement.

In my opinion, those third-party groups should have to refund every penny to the US Treasury. Yeah, I know it’s a pipe dream, but it should be considered anyway.

Remember some of the Obama-era Department of (In)Justice activities?  Like when Eric Holder refused to prosecute the New Black Panther members who were outside polling places intimidating voters?  Like Operation Fast and Furious which bought guns for drug cartels to infiltrate back into the US?  Like numerous “consent decrees” entered into under duress by many big-city (Democratic-run all) police departments, essentially admitting that their policing was racially biased?  Like the bullying and imprisonment of an innocent filmmaker to cover up Hillary Clinton’s misdeeds in Benghazi?  Like the hounding and destruction of “Joe the Plumber”, when he called out Obama?

Those Days Are Over.

RushBabe49 SCORES on Ricochet

I wrote a Ricochet post on the dustup between some students and a biology professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and the total lack of publicity of this by the local “mainstream” media. So now my RB49 Followers can get a taste of Ricochet, since my post was promoted from the Member Feed (members only) to the Main Feed, the public-facing part of Ricochet.

Herewith, a link to my post.  Comments are welcome here.  Last time I looked, the post itself had 19 likes, and 51 comments.

https://ricochet.com/433047/this-is-an-interesting-case-of-media-bias/

And here is the video link, which Ricochet redacted due to language.  I expect my readers   to take this in stride.

 

And here is another LINK to a great TruthRevolt article about this incident.

Illegal Immigration…Mexico Encourages it! Make this Handbook go Viral.

Illegal Immigration…Mexico Encourages it! Make this Handbook go Viral.

Thanks to my Ricochet friend “Wiley”, you can now access the Mexican Government’s Handbook for Illegal Immigrants to the United States from Mexico.  This handbook is published only in Spanish, and is available to any Mexican who thinks he can make a better living in the United States than he can in Mexico.  Just FYI, Mexico relies heavily on the remittances sent to family in Mexico from Illegal Immigrants to the USA.  My resourceful friend, “Wiley”, has translated this handbook for your edification.  Herewith is the “Guide for the Mexican Migrant”.  The original has graphics that did not copy, but the text below is engrossing in itself.  Please read, and send to as many of your “immigrant rights” friends as you can.  One more thing.  Mexico itself has very strict laws prohibiting illegal immigration into Mexico!  And their laws are strictly enforced!

Published by Mexico’s foreign ministry (apparently in 2005). The version displayed below was captured from the sre.gob.mx website. “SRE” stands for Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores or the office of the Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Affairs which is the equivalent of the US Department of State. I can no longer find the guide on their website. The guide gives insight into the Mexican government’s attitude towards illegal immigration into the US. It begins with (page 1):

Dear fellow citizen:

This guide tries to provide you with some practical advice that may be useful to you in case you have made the difficult decision to seek new work opportunities outside of your own country. [emphasis added]
Then the guide proceeds to illustrate and advise on how to “cross the northern border without the necessary documentation” (page 1); safety measures for swimming the Rio Grande (pages 4-5); advice on choosing a smuggler (pages 8-11); how to deal with the US border patrol (pages 12-17); legal rights once in the US including “You are not obligated to disclose your immigration status when you are detained” (pages 18-23); how to avoid detection once in the US (pages 24-27); and a handy list of the Mexican consulates in U.S. Cities including their phone numbers (pages 29-30).

I have provided the entire guide with an English translation below each page. It is helpful if, as you read, you envision an equivalent document written by the Dept. of State, advising US citizens on illegal entry into Canada.

INTRODUCTION, PAGES 0 – 1

Dear fellow citizen:

This guide tries to provide you with some practical advice that may be useful to you in case you have made the difficult decision to seek new work opportunities outside of your own country.

The safe way to enter another country is by first obtaining your passport, which is issued by the Delegations of the Secretariat of Foreign Relations, and your visa, which you request at the Embassy or Consulate of the country to where you wish to travel.

However, we actually see many cases of Mexicans who try to cross the northern border without the necessary documentation, crossing high-risk zones that are very dangerous, especially in desert areas or rivers with strong and not always noticeable currents.

INTRODUCTION, PAGES 2 – 3

As you read this guide you can also learn some basic questions about legal consequences of your stay in the United States of America without appropriate immigration documents, as well as the rights you have in that country once you are there, independent of your immigration status.

Always keep in mind that there are mechanisms for you to enter the United States of America legally.

In any case, if you encounter problems or difficulties, remember that Mexico has 45 Consulates at its disposal in that country, whose contact information you also can find in this publication.

Identify your Consulate and go to it.

RISKS, PAGES 4 – 5

DANGERS OF CROSSING IN HIGH-RISK ZONES

Crossing the river can be very risky, especially if you cross alone and at night..

Thick clothing weighs you down when it’s wet and makes it hard to swim or float.

RISKS, PAGES 6 – 7

If you cross in the desert, try to travel when the heat is not so intense.

Highways and towns are very far apart, so that it could take you several days to find roads and you will not be able to carry food or water for that long. You could even get lost.

Salted water helps you retain body fluids. Although you get more thirsty, if you drink salted water the risk of dehydration is lessened.

Dehydration symptoms are:

? Little or no perspiration

? Dryness of eyes and mouth

? Headache

? Fatigue and exhaustion

? Difficulty in walking and reasoning

? Hallucinations and mirages

If you get lost follow utility poles, railroad tracks or furrows.

BE CAREFUL OF ALIEN SMUGGLERS, PAGES 8 – 09

BE CAREFUL OF “POLLEROS”, “COYOTES” OR “PATEROS” [Various names for alien smugglers)

They can deceive you by assuring you they’ll cross you [smuggle you across the border] at certain times over mountains or through deserts. This is not true! They can put your life in danger leading you through rivers, irrigation canals, desert areas, along railroad tracks or freeways. This has caused the death of hundreds of people.

If you decide to use the services of a “pollero”, “coyote” or “patero” to cross the border, consider the following precautions to take:

Don’t let him out of your sight; remember that he’s the only one that knows the terrain and therefore is the only one that can guide you safely.

Do not trust anyone who offers to cross you over to the “other side” and asks you to drive a vehicle or carry a package for him. Regularly those…

BE CAREFUL OF ALIEN SMUGGLERS, PAGES 10 – 11

…packages contain drugs or other prohibited substances. For that reason many people have ended up in jail.

If you transport other people you can be confused with an alien smuggler and be accused of alien smuggling yourself or even vehicle theft.

Don’t hand over your minor children to strangers that offer to cross them to the United States.

DO NOT USE FALSE DOCUMENTS, PAGES 12 – 13

DO NOT USE FALSE DOCUMENTS OR DOCUMENTS OF OTHER PEOPLE, NOR DECLARE A FALSE NATIONALITY

If you try to cross with documents that are false or that belong to someone else, keep the following in mind:

The use of documents that are false or that belong to someone else is a Federal crime in the United States, for which you can be criminally prosecuted and end up in jail; the same as if you give a false name or say you are a U.S. citizen when you are not.

Do not lie to U.S. border crossing or inspection booth agents.

IF YOU ARE DETAINED, PAGES 14 – 15

Do not resist arrest.

Do not assault or insult the officer.

Do not throw stones or other objects at the officers nor at the patrol cars, because this is considered a form of provocation.

If the officers feel they’ve been assaulted they will probably use force to detain you.

Raise your hands slowly for them to see you’re unarmed.

Do not carry or hold any objects that could be construed as weapons, such as: lanterns, screwdrivers, blades, knives or stones.

IF YOU ARE DETAINED, PAGE 16 / YOUR RIGHTS, PAGE 17

IF YOU ARE DETAINED

Don’t run or try to escape.

Don’t hide in dangerous places.

Don’t cross freeways.

It’s better for you to be detained for a few hours and be repatriated to Mexico than to get lost in the desert.

YOUR RIGHTS

IF YOU ARE ARRESTED, YOU HAVE RIGHTS!

Give your true name.

If you are a minor and are accompanied by an adult, tell the authorities so they do not separate you.

YOUR RIGHTS / YOUR RIGHTS, PAGES 18 – 19

Your rights are:

To know where you are.

To request to speak to the nearest Mexican Consulate representative in order to receive help.

To not make statements or sign documents, especially if they are in English, without the aid of a defense attorney or Mexican Government Consulate representative.

To receive medical attention if you are injured or in poor health.

To receive respectful treatment regardless of your immigration status.

To be transported safely.

To have water and food when you need it.

You are not obligated to disclose your immigration status when you are detained.

YOUR RIGHTS, PAGES 20 – 21

To not be hit or insulted.

To not be held incommunicado.

In case they take away your personal effects, request a voucher in order to claim them when you are released.

If there is any violation of these rights, it’s important for you to inform your attorney or Mexican Consulate representative that visits you or even the nearest Delegation of the Secretariat of Foreign Relations within Mexico.

If you wish more information and you live in Texas or in Ciudad AcuÒa, Coahuila, tune in to “The Powerful Station” at AM 1570.

IF YOU ARE ARRESTED / DETAINED, PAGES 22 – 23

IF YOU ARE ARRESTED / DETAINED

If you have already been sentenced for some crime or you are in jail facing criminal prosecution, you have the following rights:

To not be discriminated against by the police, the courts or prison authorities.

To receive visits from consular officials and family members.

To receive appropriate legal counsel without conditions or obstructions.

If you being criminally prosecuted and have not yet been sentenced, ask your attorney or consular representative what the “Plea Agreement” consists of.

Do not plead guilty without first consulting your attorney about the possibilities of winning your case if you go to trial.

It’s important they you know the laws of the American state where you live and work, since each state’s laws are different. Bear in mind the following information:

If you drink don’t drive, since if you do not have papers you can be detained and deported [a bit of INFOMUNDO editorializing here: no word about maiming or killing yourself or others as a drunk driver!].

If a legal resident is cited more than two times for drunk driving, he can be deported.

Do not drive without a driver’s license.

Observe traffic signs and signals and use your seatbelt.

Do not drive without auto insurance nor drive an unknown vehicle.

[THINGS TO] AVOID, PAGES 24 – 25

Do not pick up strangers.

If you commit some traffic violation and are detained by the police, place your hands on the steering wheel and do not get out of the car until the officer requests you to do so.

Avoid calling attention to yourself, at least while you are arranging your residence papers to live in the United States.

The best formula is not to alter your routine of going between work and home.

Avoid noisy parties because the neighbors can get upset and call the police, and you could be arrested.

Avoid fighting.

If you go to a bar or night club and a fight starts, leave immediately, since in the confusion you could be arrested even if you did not do anything wrong.

Avoid family or domestic violence. As in Mexico, it is a crime in the United States.

[THINGS TO] AVOID, PAGES 26 – 27

Domestic violence does not consist solely of hitting others but also can be threats, shouting or mistreatment.

If you are accused of domestic violence against your children, your mate or someone else who lives with toy, you could go to jail. In addition, Child Protective Services authorities could take away your children.

Do not carry firearms, bladed weapons or other dangerous objects.

Keep in mind that many Mexicans have died or are in prison because of these things.

If the police enter your house or apartment, do not resist, but ask to see a search warrant. It’s better to cooperate with them and ask to speak to the nearest Mexican Consulate.

CONSULATES, PAGES 28 – 29

The Secretariat of Foreign Relations has 45 consular representatives within the U.S and on its southern border, which are designed to help you. Remember: if you have been detained or are serving a sentence, you have the right to speak with the nearest Mexican Consulate. Always carry your “Guide to Consular Protection” with you at all times.

Get Near to the Consulate…

Embrace Mexico.

It’s your home, fellow countryman!

BOX ON LAST PAGE:

This consular protection guide is not promoting the crossing [of the border] of Mexicans without legal documentation required by the government of the United States; its objective is to make known the risks implied and to inform about the rights of migrants regardless of their legal residence.

This is thoroughly disgusting-Liberal Violence

Donald Trump won the Presidential Election.  As we probably expected, the loser liberals erupted in volcanic Rage.  Whenever things don’t go the way they want them to go, the liberals whine, cry, and riot.  Yes, RIOT.  In many large cities this week, there were the kinds of destructive riots that are basically the only way the losers know to express their feelings of disappointment and anger.

Well, they don’t only cry and whine.  They destroy the property of innocent people, and they violently attack those they deem to have voted for the wrong guy.  These are the people who decry violence and demonstrate against war!  Here are today’s headlines:

[Edit: I am adding more as they come up.  Watch this space. More every day]

Motorist beaten as bystanders laugh, jeer

One person shot during anti-Trump protest in Portland

Taggers leave anti-Trump slogans on Seattle school, Bellevue park

Outrage and fear continue to fuel anti-Trump protests

“Tears” and “Fear”..Harry Reid is not taking Trump’s election well

Anti-Trump protester calls for death, violence on CNN

Fifth night of anti-Trump protests in Portland turns violent

Thousands of Seattle Public Schools students walk out of school to protest Donald Trump’s election.  And the Seattle Police re-routed traffic!!  I swear, in Seattle the inmates are running the asylum.

Talk of assassination, and he hasn’t even taken office yet.

Anti-Trump vandal sets Mustang afire in SE Portland

Kirkland woman upset over election makes false rape claim.  This just gets weirder!

Liberals, we know you. All rage, all the time.   Losers.

After the Election

After the Election

trumpprotesters

I have to say, I had a great time on Tuesday night.  I spent 2.5 hours in front of my computer, participating in the live chat with my Ricochet friends.  There must have been over 200 of us, from all over the world, chiming in and giving reports of how the voting was going in their areas.  People would come back from casting their ballots, and mention lines around the block at the polling stations.  Many people were watching other broadcast and Internet media, and they would tell us what MSNBC and ABC and CBS and CNN were doing and saying.  One member from Florida was very enthusiastic about how well the Republicans were doing in his state, which was considered a battleground.  Many people mentioned how depressed the mainstream media folks were acting, as Donald Trump pulled ahead in state after state.  Those who live in a bubble of liberalism were finally being hit with a big spray of cold, hard reality.  I thought it was a joke, but it seems that the Canadian web site for potential immigrants actually went down under the weight of Hollywood and other celebrities and liberals making good on their threats to leave if Trump was elected. [I say to them, don’t let the door hit you on your way out!]

So, now it’s the Great Aftermath, and lots of liberals out there, especially the coddled young snowflakes, are reacting just like you’d expect them to.  How?  By protesting, of course!  These cry-bullies seem not to know how to do anything except protest.  In Seattle, they hit the streets.  In California, the CEO of a tech company suggested very strongly that any employee who voted for Trump should resign!  They are so blind, they who emphasize “tolerance and inclusion” proceed to exclude and discriminate against those who don’t think or vote like they do!  Oh, and the Stock Market!  Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up over 200 points.  But the Nasdaq Composite Index fell over 42 points-another Liberal tantrum (tech companies are run by liberals who don’t know what side of their bread is buttered).

Cornell Students Hold ‘Cry-In’ Over Trump Victory

UCLA Diversity Chancellor Holds Therapeutic Event to “Process” the Election

Protesters Block Entrance to Trump Tower

There are a lot of happy Republicans today.  We hold out hope that Trump will really make a start on draining the swamp of Washington D.C.  There are multiple posts over on Ricochet, with suggestions for a Trump Cabinet, and who he should nominate for the Supreme Court.  We hope to say good-bye to ObamaCare in the new year.

I live in Deep Blue Washington State, where most western Washington voters voted for Hillary Clinton.  I have a really hard time understanding why anyone would want an old, tired, sick, corrupt woman as president.  If you really look at her record, such as it is, you will see that she had absolutely nothing to recommend her, and she had a whole litany of immoral, illegal actions for which the fawning Press will never hold her to account.  Hillary Clinton demonstrably caused the deaths of four brave Americans in Benghazi, then lied to their relatives about how and why they died!  She played fast and loose for years with confidential, classified State Secrets, for which many others have lost their jobs and gone to prison!  I am disgusted with how the politicized FBI let her off scot-free.

We are fortunate that the Clinton Crime Family won’t be running this country.

I wish only for the best of a Trump Administration.  I think he will do well as president, rolling back the misdeeds of the Obama years.  Onward to Liberty!

We must Never Forget…September 11, 2001

never-forget_t5

On that day, worldwide Radical Islam escalated the ongoing war on the United States of America (and the rest of Western civilization), the nation that has been a beacon of hope and prosperity for over 250 years.  For the past eight years, we have ignored that war, and turned our backs on Christians and Jews everywhere who have been murdered in the streets of Paris and Jerusalem, and even in their beds.  And the current administration undermines the USA, freeing dozens of terrorists from Guantanamo to return to the jihad they wage against us.

We must never forget those who perished on September 11, 2001, in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania.  May their lives not have been in vain.

Long Live The United States of America!

And a big Thank You to Michael Ramirez, whose work honors them, and us.
