VFW pulls permission for immigration meeting
The Tri-Town News has a great story on the VFW's capitulation to traitors and felons, correcting the misinformation presented in their earlier article. Here is the letter I am sending to VFW Post 4374:
As a fellow Veteran, I am writing to express my disappointment in your decision to rescind the agreement you made with United Patriots of America allowing them to use your facilities. I respect your right as a private organization to determine to which groups you will and will not rent your facilities. However, the decision you made in this case was shameful. It was quite inconvenient for me, after traveling many miles, to get to your building and find that the meeting had been moved, thanks to your last-minute decision. I was stunned to find police cars in the parking lot to keep us away. United Patriots of America is a great organization comprised of veterans and other real Americans who simply want the laws of our nation relating to immigration adequately enforced. Those who oppose UPA’s agenda are traitors supporting felons and the foreign invasion of America. Caving to pressure from such people is a disgrace to the uniform you wore.
Report on "Freehold" immigration event
As many of you know I was invited to represent the Constitution Party at an April 4th meeting of United Patriots of America, an immigration reform organization, in Freehold, New Jersey. The purpose of the meeting was to brainstorm solutions to the illegal alien problem in the New York metropolitan area.
I first got an inkling that it might be an eventful day when someone forwarded me this article: http://tritown.gmnews.com/news/2005/0330/Front_page/035.html
As expected, when I arrived at the VFW in Freehold a UPA member was there to direct me to the new location of the meeting, the USA Country Diner near nearby Hightstown. There were also a couple of police cars in the parking lot. After getting lost trying to find it, I made it there just in time for the scheduled start time of the meeting. When I arrived there were no demonstrators there, but as other people came in they informed me there were demonstrators protesting at the entrance to the diner harassing customers as they entered, asking them if they were there for the “hate group” meeting. One of the protestors entered our meeting and looked around and said “I just wanted to get a good look at who these racists are.” I have no idea whether the fact that there were people of color among our group made any impression on her.
Just as the meeting was about to start the owner of the diner informed us that we would have to leave. I presume he was worried that the demonstrators would keep other customers away. We left as asked. As I walked out of the diner, there were perhaps a dozen protestors there. There were also a couple of police officers there. They did not appear to intend to order the demonstrators to leave.
I know that several of the members present at the meeting were unable or unwilling to travel further that day (many of us had traveled several hours just to get to the VFW) A few of us drove several miles north to another diner in Elizabeth. There I delivered my prepared remarks to a much smaller group in a much more informal setting. In addition to Constitution Party of New York member Chuck Hammerslag, among those present at this meeting were UPA President Ron Bass and a Civil Homeland Defense volunteer from Tombstone, Arizona - a dynamic speaker who shared his personal experience with the problems that ranchers are having with the invaders on the border.
Despite the challenges we faced, I think some good was accomplished. Ron expressed a real keen interest in the Constitution Party and we are discussing the possibility of running a candidate for Congress in his home district of Staten Island, making immigration the focus of the campaign. Contrary to some reports you may read, Ron is not a monster with fangs. He struck me as just a real American with a passion for what our government’s failure to defend the border is doing to the New York metro area and to America in general. Contrary to the information reported in the Tri-Town News article, Ron informs me that UPA actually has a good relationship with FAIR.
Give Foreign Mercenaries the Boot
In a recent Washington Times article, Jeremy Seper reports that Senate Democrats challenged President Bush's decision to hire 210 new Border Patrol agents for next fiscal year, saying he reneged on a promise to add 2,000 agents when he signed the intelligence overhaul bill in December.
“But you don’t understand,” I have been told by supporters of President Bush and his open borders policy, “He wanted to hire the 2000, it is just very difficult to find that many qualified Americans willing to take on that difficult and thankless job.”
Well that is odd I thought, considering that the Minute Man Project has apparently found a number of Americans willing to do it for free. Besides, there must be some amount of money we could pay that would attract enough qualified people to halt the foreign invasion. But, I figured, perhaps it is a mitigating factor worth considering.
That is until I read on the so-called Department of Homeland Security website that United States Customs and Border Protection have deployed Border Patrol Agents to secure the borders of Iraq. What does that have to do with securing America? What kind of madness is it when we can not find enough qualified people to secure our borders, but we can spare some to defend the borders of another nation?
It gets worse.
This morning of the day that I am writing, U.S. District Court Judge Lee H. Rosenthal, Southern District of Texas, administered an Oath of Allegiance to fifty military personnel at the George Bush Presidential Library, College Station, Texas. The soldiers, the majority of whom recently returned from combat duty in Iraq, are natives of the following countries: Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Cameroon, Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Jamaica, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, St. Lucia, South Korea, Thailand, Trinidad, Vietnam, Uzbekistan, and Venezuela. The oldest is an active duty Roman Catholic U.S. Army Chaplain who is 50 years of age. According to John Ross Mexico, which unlike its Central American neighbors was never a member of George Bush's "Coalition of the Willing", now has the largest contingent of any Latin nation fighting on the ground in Iraq--8000 Mexican and Mexican-descent troops who voluntarily joined the U.S. armed forces.
What a disgrace. It is reminiscent of the invasion of New York City by Hessians during the American Revolution. Stopping the influx of foreign mercenaries into America's armed forces would impede American imperialism. It seems to me that a good way to do that would be to abandon the carrot that is encouraging many of them to fight for the New World Order: American citizenship.
Of course, that is precisely what liberals in the White House, Congress, and the mainstream media do not want. In a Los Angeles Times Editorial, Max Boot argues that the military should ease its manpower shortage by letting more foreigners join up. He complains that “out of an active-duty force of about 1.4 million, only 108,803 are foreign-born (7%) and 30,541 are noncitizens (2%)” [italics mine] and proposes:
The military would do well today to open its ranks not only to legal immigrants but also to illegal ones and, as important, to untold numbers of young men and women who are not here now but would like to come. No doubt many would be willing to serve for some set period in return for one of the world's most precious commodities — U.S. citizenship. Open up recruiting stations from Budapest to Bangkok, Cape Town to Cairo, Montreal to Mexico City. Some might deride those who sign up as mercenaries, but these troops would have significantly different motives than the usual soldier of fortune. The simplest thing to do would be to sign up foreigners for the regular U.S. military, but it would also make sense to create a unit whose enlisted ranks would be composed entirely of non-Americans, led by U.S. officers and NCOs.
If you are not disgusted yet, you should probably stop reading now. Max, how would their motives be different from mercenaries? Foreigners fighting for a nation are mercenaries, regardless of the form of payment. During the French and Indian War, the British under Newcastle tried to create American units lead by British officers. His government collapsed and was replaced by William Pitt, in large measure because Americans refused to subject themselves to British discipline.
Boot further argues that “during the Civil War, at least 20 percent of Union soldiers were immigrants . . . there were even entire units . . . where English was hardly spoken.” True enough, but given that it was the Lincoln administration which first put forth the unconstitutional federal income tax, illegally suspended the writ of habeus corpus, and generally expanded the size and power of the federal government it is hardly an argument to endear one for the creation of Boot’s so-called “Freedom Legion.” Do we really want more United States military units that hardly speak English than we already have?
I have a better idea: Let’s withdraw our military from Iraq, Afghanistan and all other overseas deployments; put our boys back on our borders to defend our country; and send the foreign mercenaries back from whence they came. Vote only for presidential candidates who will enforce current immigration laws, and vote only for congressional candidates who will improve our stupid, evil immigration laws that allow entirely too many people to emigrate to America, and too many from the wrong countries.
I have been invited to speak at this United Patriots of America event. If you can make it, please come and show your support and forward to your friends in New Jersey.

Lottery winner wins $750,000 Of course, she spent $1,000,000 trying. Story here
Legalized gambling is taxing the poor to help the rich. Casinos will "look carefully" before jumping into Philadelphia and Pennsylvania because of a requirement that more than 50 percent of gross revenue be turned over to state and local governments, according to the Philiadelphia Inquirer.
Meanwhile lottery sales in Lancaster County disappoint the state government in Pennsylvania. It seems "It's a function of the values of the county and the area."
And the Chair of the mayor of Bethlehem's South Side Task Force writes an op-ed in favor of gambling. He writes "The morality of the gaming issue should be taken up in Harrisburg, not on Bethlehem's South Side." The more involved I get in the gambling issue, the more buck-passing I find. This guy says it is up the state legislature. When I lobbied the New York State legislature on Monday, they told me it was up to the local community to decide. Everyone claims to personally dislike gambling, but insist they are powerless to stop it. It doesn't pass the smell test. I suspect it is a combination of corruption and gambling addicts in positions of authority.
CDC ignores abortion link in report on women drinking during pregnancy
A new study by the Centers for Disease Control found that 10 percent of pregnant American women consume alcohol during pregnancy, and that two percent of pregnant women drink frequently or engage in "binge drinking" (defined as consuming five or more alcoholic drinks on one occasion).
However, one factor the CDC researchers failed to take into account in their analysis was the high instance of substance abuse among pregnant women with a history of abortion. According to an Elliot Institute study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology in 2004, among women who carrying a pregnancy to term for the first time, women who had a history of abortion were five times more likely to use illicit drugs and twice as likely to consume alcohol during pregnancy compared to women who had not had a previous abortion.

Al Qaeda Just a Bush Boogeyman
A three-hour historical film by Adam Curtis recently aired by the British Broadcasting Corp., argues coherently that much of what we have been told about the threat of international terrorism "is a fantasy that has been exaggerated and distorted by politicians. It is a dark illusion that has spread unquestioned through governments around the world, the security services and the international media."

Dave Black's response to Pat Buchanan's "Bush-NeoCon Parting of the Ways"
To say that there is a crisis of credibility in the Bush White House is to dangerously understate the problem. Whether the issue is sodomy, abortion, the war in Iraq, the Federal Marriage Amendment, Homeland Security, or the Bush record in general, weeping and repentance is the only faithful response to the scandalous, unconstitutional disobedience that characterizes the halls of our federal government.

Vote Fraud in Onondaga County
There is a problem in the way the votes were counted for the Constitution Party's candidate Mike Peroutka. Or, should I say, the way they weren't counted. Two voters found that although they used the proper "MAP" State assigned write-in name to vote for Mr. Peroutka in Onondaga County, amazingly, no votes were recorded for the candidate in that county when the certified results came out. How do I know that those two people weren't lying about who they voted for? Easy. I was one of them.

Court Sidesteps Sodomites Adopting Children
The Supreme Court rejected an appeal by four sodomites who challenged Florida's law banning sex perverts from adopting children. Florida is the only state with a blanket law prohibiting homosexuals from adopting children, and the court was told that other states can now feel free to copy Florida's law. Justices, in an unconstitutional opinion, barred the state of Texas in 2003 from criminalizing sodomy. The court said then that Texas "cannot demean their (sodomites) existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime." (News Source: The Associated Press)

CAGNY press conference and lobby day
Yesterday, I participated in the Coalition Against Gambling in New York press conference and lobby day at the Legislative Office Building in Albany. I consider the press conference a success. There were many good speakers from across the state who came at the issue from a variety of perspectives but who were united in their opposition to Governor Pataki's plan to turn New York into the next Las Vegas. Among the speakers was Burr Deitz of the Constitution Party of New York, who did a great job. There were many reporters present. Stories were published today in the Times Herald Record and the Albany Times Union. One of the reporters I recognized was David Hess of Inside Albany I expect at least a few seconds of the press conference to be featured on that show this weekend.
The lobbying was frustrating as I expected. Despite having advance appointments I never saw a single legislator the entire day.
After waiting fifteen minutes, I met with Langdon Chapman and Kate Glaser in Senator Bonacic's office. Senator Bonacic's district includes Sullivan County where the governor wants to put five casinos. They passed the buck and said that it was up to the county legislature.
The most open-minded person I met with was John Long in David Paterson's office. Patterson is the senate minority leader. Mr. Long was on time for our meeting.
We were supposed to meet with Aileen Gunther, the assemblywoman whose district covers Sullivan County. She never showed. After twenty-five minutes we finally met with two staffers in her office. You make an appointment, take time off of work, but apparently her time is more important than mine. Citizens are no longer allowed to walk in the capitol building unescorted. It's not like we own the building or anything.
Gunther's people refused to say where she stands other than saying she was sponsoring legislation that would allow a referendum of Sullivan County residents to determine whether casinos would be allowed. They also admitted that her bill had no chance of passing the legislature. More passing the buck.
I also met with Charlotte Johnson in the office of my senator, Bill Larkin. Mr. Larkin is the chairman of the "Racing, Gaming, and Wagering Committee" or as I like to call it, the "Vice Committee." She was the most frustrating of all. Apparently, Larkin avidly supports the expansion of gambling in New York. She was terribly uninformed about gambling, describing it as a harmless pastime and a boon to the economy, none of which is true. This is after we heard testimony from gambling addicts and family members of addicts of how it had destroyed lives and from economist John Kindt of the University of Illinois that legalized gambling costs communities $3 for ever $1 dollar it generates and costs jobs. Ms. Johnson told us that we have an "uphill battle" because the governor "really wants to expand gambling in New York." She also said "everyone is entitle to their opinion." That really annoys me. Yes, people are free to support legalized gambling, but by doing so they support increased crime, addiction, and recession. That is not a matter of opinion but facts supported by every economist that is not bought and paid for by gambling con-artists. Ms. Johnson told me I should come back some time to speak to Mr. Larkin. Of course, I had driven two hours to meet with him yesterday at our scheduled appointment. I am going to send him a follow-up letter for all the good it will do.
While in the LOB I picked up a copy of their newsletter The Legislative Gazette, January 10th issue. There is a headline on page 10 that says "Sullivan Residents Back Casino Jobs" The article refers to a Zogby poll that 71% of 18-29 year olds favor the casinos. I never heard of this poll before, but Zogby polls are notorious for unreliabilityy. 18-29 year olds generally have less to lose. Why aren't older people included in the poll? I have seen many polls that are more inclusive and more scientific that indicate that the vast majority of residents of Sullivan County do not want polls. No doubt they found the one poll that provided the results they need to rationalize the destruction they are preparing to wreak on our state.
I am sending a letter to the editor in response, but based on my experience yesterday it is pretty clear to me that the Empire State will become the Gambling State. I hope I am wrong, but I suspect it will take the utter destruction to our state that "all gambling, all the time" is sure to bring to get New Yorkers to vote for constitutionalists who will end legalized gambling in New York.
