On June 3, Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government, wrote in an April 3 column for Breitbart that the recent increase in violent Hispanic demonstrations suggests the influence of La Raza activists, with the group’s history of identifying with the Mexican Reconquista movement.
“The Mexican Reconquista movement is a rejection of American sovereignty over lands that, according to mythology, were formerly held by the Aztecs throughout the southwestern United States,” Manning noted. “And it is telling that many of the anti-Trump protesters reject his notion to ‘make America great again’ instead waving Mexican flags while burning the Stars and Stripes.”
I’m voting for Donald Trump, so I went to see him speak. Protesters broke my nose.

I’m no trump fan, but face facts.
The protesters physically assaulted people walking into a trump rally. It’s a threat to free speech.
And protesters carrying Mexican flags interfered with a political rally. Can you imagine what would happen if an American citizen carried a U.S. Flag in Mexico?

Mexicans, legal and illegal, and their sympathizers are critical of the United States, yet Mexico encourages millions of its own people to emigrate to a supposedly unattractive America. Some protesters in turn wave the flag of the country that they do not wish to return to more often than the flag of the country they are terrified of being deported from. Signs at Trump rallies trash the United States but praise Mexico. #Trump2016

Yup. They’re here precisely because it isn’t like Mexico, Hell Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. Yet they’re trying to turn America into the places they fled. Send the ones who do this back now.
Tucson Police Officer Says Trump Protesters Are “The Most Hateful, Evil People” Ever Seen
He went to a Trump rally, off-duty, to find out for himself what Donald Trump was like at a rally and the protesters surprised him the most because of their unruly behavior.
Protesters Punch, Throw Eggs at Trump Supporters in Calif.
“It was unbelievable,” said Steve Tong, a Cupertino resident who attended the Trump rally.
Tong said after the rally, he was walking toward a nearby parking structure and saw protesters surrounding and taunting an elderly couple.
“I’ve never seen anything like that in America before,” Tong said.
Tong also said he saw protesters smash car windows inside the parking structure.
Journalists and news analysts who keep tripping over themselves to prove their moral superiority to Donald Trump and the voters pushing him toward the Republican nomination should also work a little harder to cover that story. Leave it to an angry Republican establishment to run the “Stop Trump” movement and try not to botch coverage of the 2016 general election as badly as you missed the multitude of signs pointing to Trump’s initial rise. As I said on “Morning Joe” last August, “this denial of reality of the mainstream media just plays into Donald Trump’s hands.”
Cleveland first outlined the bids in July of 2014, just days after the RNC chose the city to host its convention.
Liberals and Progressives love to use racism as a club to assert their moral superiority with those who disagree them about, for example, sanctuary cities. Democrats, liberals, progressive, are solipsistic and ignore the common good beyond the bounds of their ideologies.
You probably didn’t know that in 1901 a Republican president…held the first dinner with a black American in the White House. Booker T. Washington was born into slavery.
Writer, soldier, reformer, rancher, explorer, ornithologist, progressive, Theodore Roosevelt was a leader who ended the war between Russia and Japan in 1905 and won the Nobel Prize. Like Donald Trump, he was caricatured as authoritarian.
Woodrow Wilson was extremely racist — even by the standards of his time
Upon taking office [in 1913], Wilson himself fired 15 out of 17 black supervisors in the federal service and replaced them with white people. After the Treasury and Post Office began segregating, many black workers were let go. The head of the Internal Revenue division in Georgia fired all his black employees, saying,”There are no government positions for Negroes in the South. A Negro’s place in the corn field.” To enable hiring discrimination going forward, in 1914 the federal government began requiring photographs on job applications.
…It’s worth stressing that Wilson’s policies here were racist even for his time. Presidents Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft had been much better about appointing black statesmen to public office, and other political figures, including whites, attacked Wilson’s moves toward segregation.
Of course you didn’t know.
At the 1924 Democratic National Convention, held at Madison Square Garden in New York, the most powerful bloc in the Democratic Party was the Ku Klux Klan. Credit The New York Times
A presidential candidate who banked on support from the Ku Klux Klan. Blunt demands to ban certain religions and races from playing a full role in society. Violence and disorder at campaign rallies.
And a political party that tore itself apart not only over whom it would nominate for president, but also over whether religious and racial bigotry would be visible in its fabric.
Welcome to the 1924 Democratic National Convention, held at Madison Square Garden in New York, when the most powerful bloc in the Democratic Party was the Klan, fiercely opposed by the Tammany Hall Democrats. It was the longest political convention in American history, going 16 days and requiring 103 ballots before a compromise candidate was selected.
The convulsions of the Democrats in 1924 are, in broad movements, mirrored in the rived and bedraggled pilgrimage of the Republicans in 2016 as they stagger toward their convention behind Donald J. Trump and his rivals.
In 1924, there were fistfights in the aisles and roosters released in the galleys; the police were called to break up the rumbles. Tammany backed the candidacy of Gov. Alfred E. Smith of New York, a Roman Catholic, reviled by the Klan for his religion and his stature as a champion of the newest Americans, and by “dry” Democrats for his opposition to Prohibition. The candidate of the Klan, and many other Democrats, was a California lawyer, William G. McAdoo, the son-in-law of former President Woodrow Wilson.
During the convention, 20,000 Klansmen attended a rally in New Jersey to denounce Governor Smith. “They beat an effigy of him into a pulp,” Robert A. Slayton wrote in his biography, “Empire Statesman: The Rise and Redemption of Al Smith.”
An existential battle was at hand, Mr. Slayton wrote: “As the Democratic convention unwittingly set out to fight over the meaning of America, McAdoo served as the perfect opponent for Al Smith.”
Without air-conditioning, the Garden in July 1924 was a steaming, stifling caldron. The Tammany operatives hoped to wear down the opposition by dragging the proceedings on and driving up hotel bills. To keep the Southern delegates from abandoning the city — and to make sure Smith did not win the nomination — the publisher William Randolph Hearst picked up some tabs for lodgings. The galleries were packed with raucous crowds. A pigeon, styled as a “Dove of Peace,” was released into the arena and its presence in the rafters “caused nervous glances to be cast heavenward by the assembled delegates,” Robert K. Murray wrote in “The 103rd Ballot: Democrats and the Disaster in Madison Square Garden.”
“This gathering heard more speeches, listened to more spoken words, experienced more fistfights, spent more time in committee, and witnessed more demonstrations than any other such assemblage in history,” Mr. Murray wrote.
Passions crested when some delegates proposed that the platform include the words, “We pledge the Democratic Party to oppose any effort on the part of the Ku Klux Klan or any organization to interfere with the religious liberty or political freedom of any citizen, or to limit the civic rights of any citizen or body of citizens because of religion, birthplace or racial origin.” The proceedings of the convention, which ran to 1,315 pages, report: “Resounding cheers, applause, rising demonstrations, delegates standing on chairs waving hats, the chairman vainly rapping his gavel for order; disorder in the galleries; cries of ‘Get out,’ ‘Say it again.’”
Senator Oscar Underwood of Alabama, who supported the anti-Klan plank, was denounced by the Klan as “‘the Jew, jug and Jesuit candidate’ — the ‘jug’ reference meant to disparage Underwood’s opposition to Prohibition,” Terry Golway wrote in “Machine Made: Tammany Hall and the Creation of Modern American Politics.”
The fight went on for hours, and ultimately, the Klan and its allies prevailed in the platform fight as a resolution to condemn them by name lost by less than one vote — 543 and three-twentieths votes to 542 and seven-twentieths votes. (Some delegates could cast fractional votes.)
Neither Governor Smith nor Mr. McAdoo came close to getting two-thirds of the delegates needed for the nomination. The compromise candidate, John W. Davis, got only 29 percent of the vote when he ran in the general election against President Calvin Coolidge.
Four years later, Governor Smith won the Democratic nomination, but the Klan awaited him as he crossed the country, burning crosses and spreading lies. “The Grand Dragon of the Realm of Arkansas, writing to a citizen of that state, urges my defeat because I am a Catholic,” he said in a speech. “During all of our national life, we have prided ourselves throughout the world on the declaration of the fundamental American truth that all men are created equal.”
He lost to Herbert Hoover.
The dynamic imperative of recorded history has always trended toward unity: cousins comprise clans; clans make tribes; tribes become nations; nations develop into kingdoms and empires have fallen. The days of empire are over, replaced by commercial globalism and instant communications.
From sea to shining sea, in all the sections, liberal policy
creates chaos like the sky is blue and and leaves are green.
Historically, The Democratic Party has sown discord and division among the united states and its citizens. In 1860, the election of Abraham Lincoln caused the secession of South Carolina and resulted in the Civil War. The conflict between the sections was about the extension of slavery into the territories and competition with free labor. The war was about preserving the Union and defending the Constitution. As William Pittinger, Co. H, 2nd O.V.I. wrote on July 12, 1861 concerning the enlistment of the boys in April: “Their aim was to aid in the punishment of treason, and unless they do this they will think their time spent in vain’”
One hundred years later, the Democrats promulgated a policy that has deeply divided our country at all sections
1965 Immigration Law Changed Face of America
Although the 1965 bill was intended only to end discrimination, some people feared a major increase in immigration and a change in the source countries of immigrants. Supporters of the measure assured doubters that this would not happen.
Senate immigration subcommittee chairman Edward Kennedy (D-MA.) reassured his colleagues and the nation with the following:
“First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same … Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset … Contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia … In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think.”
“The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.” (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 1-3.)
Senator Hiram Fong (R-HI) answered questions concerning the possible change in our cultural pattern by an influx of Asians.
“Asians represent six-tenths of 1 percent of the population of the United States … with respect to Japan, we estimate that there will be a total for the first 5 years of some 5,391 … the people from that part of the world will never reach 1 percent of the population .. .Our cultural pattern will never be changed as far as America is concerned.” (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965, pp.71, 119.)
Among those who more accurately foresaw the future effects of the change in immigration law was a certain Myra C. Hacker, Vice President of the New Jersey Coalition, who testified at a Senate immigration subcommittee hearing:
“In light of our 5 percent unemployment rate, our worries over the so called population explosion, and our menacingly mounting welfare costs, are we prepared to embrace so great a horde of the world’s unfortunates? At the very least, the hidden mathematics of the bill should be made clear to the public so that they may tell their Congressmen how they feel about providing jobs, schools, homes, security against want, citizen education, and a brotherly welcome … for an indeterminately enormous number of aliens from underprivileged lands.”
“We should remember that people accustomed to such marginal existence in their own land will tend to live fully here, to hoard our bounteous minimum wages and our humanitarian welfare handouts … lower our wage and living standards, disrupt our cultural patterns …”
“Whatever may be our benevolent intent toward many people, [the bill] fails to give due consideration to the economic needs, the cultural traditions, and the public sentiment of the citizens of the United States.” (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 681-687.)
“We’re very worried,” Diaz, 47, an evangelical pastor, said. “If he wins there will be a lot of damage against a lot of people here, and
to us as Hispanics, as Mexicans.”
But not as Americans…they didn’t pay the price for freedom. There should not be a national Mexican voting block that influences American politics.
Liberal intolerance, bigotry and hypocrisy flourishes in a milieu of pernicious ignorance.
Calif. Campus Shuts Down Free Speech
By Michael Reagan
It’s strange how the word “stormtrooper” in the media is almost always associated with conservatives, when the fact is it’s the left that has the mobs, violence, and riots often associated with the word.
Case in point is California State University in Los Angeles.
Recently conservative speaker and author Ben Shapiro was invited by the Young America’s Foundation to speak as part of the Fred R. Allen Lecture Series. The title of Shapiro’s talk was “When Diversity Becomes a Problem.
Just the thought of a conservative speaker setting foot on campus spouting non–sanctioned thought was enough to goad leftist “crybullies” into action.
They put pressure on university president William Covino — who evidently suffers from that common malady of university administrators: jello spine. He unilaterally canceled the event.
Issuing a statement in perfect Newspeak Covino explained, “I have decided that it will be best for our campus community if we reschedule Ben Shapiro’s appearance for a later date, so that we can arrange for him to appear as part of a group of speakers with differing viewpoints on diversity.”
Shapiro didn’t mince words in his response, “I pay taxes in the state of California; I’m paying for these whiny children to be indoctrinated by radical leftists. For CSULA to pretend that they’re trying to provide balance isn’t just stupid, it’s insultingly stupid. I am the balance, and they’re too afraid to let me speak.”
Shapiro informed Covino that he would be speaking regardless of whether or not the university approved.
That led to threats from university professors against student organizers. Other CSULA students, who Shapiro terms “snowflakes” claimed the event is a “threat to their lives” and “damaging to their mental health.”
Shapiro’s account of the subsequent event is instructive for those unaware of the threat to free speech posed by universities.
Leftist thugs blocked the entrances to the auditorium and attacked some of the students trying to get inside. Other students and potential members of the audience were intimidated and left before trying the doors.
University police did absolutely nothing to clear the illegal blockade of the entrance or stop the assaults.
Eventually, some students found a hidden entrance in the back and started an underground railroad smuggling people inside. Naturally this was such a slow process that Shapiro had to begin his speech before a very small crowd.
But even that wasn’t enough for violent speech censors. They continued screaming outside and someone inside set off a fire alarm. At the conclusion of the event Shapiro had to be escorted out surrounded by a cordon of police officers and security.
There have been no repercussions for the student or staff law breakers.
This is diversity at the modern university. You can look anyway you want, but you must to think in only one way. Or be prepared to face the consequences, alone.
English is the language of science and commerce. What positive purpose does it serve for schools in our major cities to employ multiple dozens of other languages?
Diversity in your diet and portfolio is healthy while diversity in your neighborhood and school contributes nothing to the common good-it divides communities-assimilation.
When more than a dozen state governors sent letters to the Obama administration after the jihadist attacks on Paris saying they did not want to receive any Syrian refugees until the vetting process could be improved, Obama didn’t blink. He just kept sending these governors more refugees, saying the states had no authority over the program.
“We just drop them in, and then turn around and criticize the cities and states if they complain,” Haney said. “They are Islamophobes. But the fact is all they are doing is expressing normal concerns. Who are these people? And unfortunately once they are there they start doing the very things that people were fearing, shoplifting, harassing the girls, splitting the community right down the middle, and they of course blame them for that too. You’re xenophobes.”
Republican voters and Independents, do not riot and burn business, Democrats do…

Virtually nowhere on the web is there any realization of what is about to occur in American politics. Wage earners will vote Trump by the zillions. along with service industry, retail, corporate base white collar, Mom and Pop, the population tucked away up in the hollow, half the Latino and edging up on a third of the blacks, along with the nearly all white majority spread across mid-sized cities and their surrounding enclaves that stand on what was farm land twenty years ago. All of these will vote Trump, and many more who are in the invisible demographic of America, the people with little discretionary income who never complain. vote, or shop, and are really pissed. Trump will win by staggering proportions.
