One party pushes for Amnesty in their "Dream Act" legislation and Obama is threatening the citizens with it when Congress returns for their last dubious acts before being officially thrown out.
That would be the Jackass party.
They aren't feared, they are loathed & despised.

Harry Reid was so rotten that he even tried putting his Amnesty Bill into a Defense Appropriations Bill.

Even a few Dems said it was a despicable thing to do. But not Obama. He wants Amnesty by hook or by crook.

Merkel says German multicultural society has failed

17 October 2010

The German Chancellor, Angela Merkel: "lmmigrants should learn to speak German"

She said the so-called "multikulti" concept - where people would "live side-by-side" happily - did not work, and immigrants needed to do more to integrate - including learning German.

The comments come amid rising anti-immigration feeling in Germany.

The study - by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think-tank - also showed that roughly the same number thought that some 16 million of Germany's immigrants or people with foreign origins had come to the country for its social benefits.

Foreign workers

Mrs Merkel told a gathering of younger members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party on Saturday that at "the beginning of the 60s our country called the foreign workers to come to Germany and now they live in our country."

She added: "We kidded ourselves a while, we said:'They won't stay, sometime they will be gone', but this isn't reality."

"And of course, the approach [to build] a multicultural [society] and to live side-by-side and to enjoy each other... has failed, utterly failed."

In her speech in Potsdam, however, the chancellor made clear that immigrants were welcome in Germany.

She specifically referred to recent comments by German President Christian Wulff who said that Islam was "part of Germany", like Christianity and Judaism.

Mrs Merkel said: "We should not be a country either which gives the impression to the outside world that those who don't speak German immediately or who were not raised speaking German are not welcome here."

Mounting debate

There has been intense debate about multiculturalism in Germany in recent months.

Correspondents say Mrs Merkel faces pressure from within her CDU and its allies to take a tougher stance and require immigrants to do more to adapt to German society.

Earlier this week, Horst Seehofer, the leader of the CDU's Bavarian sister party, the CSU, said it was "obvious that immigrants from different cultures like Turkey and Arab countries, all in all, find it harder" to integrate.

NBC cameraman flies Mexican flag at march

Videographer for Houston affiliate sparks angry response from locals

Posted: May 01, 2007

In the first of two clips posted on YouTube.com , a counter-protester with a bull horn can be heard condemning the cameraman's flag.

"Why does Channel 2 News have a Mexican flag on their camera?" the man asked.

KPRC News Director Skip Valet told WND the cameraman's flying of the Mexican flag broke station rules.

"It violates our policy, because we're always objective observers of these situations," Valet told WND. "We don't take sides in news stories; we cover them. That policy was clearly violated."

Obama Promises to Push for the DREAM Act

September 16, 2010
ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports:

President Obama met privately in the Oval Office today with Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-NY) and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) whom he assuring them that he would push to help get the DREAM Act passed.

“The president made it absolutely clear to us that he would leave no stone unturned in order to accomplish an approval in the Senate of the DREAM Act," Gutierrez said from the White House driveway this afternoon.

“We asked them to put the full weight and might and the full influence of the White House and his personal energy and commitment behind it.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said that he will attach the controversial DREAM Act to the controversial defense authorization bill which includes the repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy to be considered at some point next week in the Senate.

Mitch McConnell, the top Senate Republican said on Tuesday that the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repeal and the DREAM Act were “extraneous measures that have nothing to do with defense,” making the bill “needlessly controversial.”

Sen. Menendez defended the move today following the Oval Office meeting, saying it is “appropriate” and that he hopes Republicans will join Democrats on this.

At the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Dinner on Wednesday evening the president personally vouched for the bill.

When Axelrod was pressed for proof that the RNC was receiving money from foreign entities, he answered by saying that there is no proof that it isn't happening either. In normal disscourse, one usually doesn't make accusations unless he has some foundation for them.

We are living with evidence that there are unsavory foreigners floating around the country...just recently, the apprehension of Armenian gangsters who were bilking Medicare for millins through a system of phantom clinics and doctors and stolen SS numbers. We had the Christmas underwear bomber last year. Then there was the Times Square bomber, who fortunately did not succeed.

We live with the presence of people we are not allowed to ask about their status. The schools must provide additional staff for non-English speaking students at great expense to the taxpayers. Foreigners of questionable status are overburdening the medical and social service agencies.

Our police blotter is published in the newspaper along with bench warrents and an unsettling number of those who appear are definitely not native to our area and most likely are not American born. Since 9/11, people are naturally edgy about those who do not appear to have been born here. There are statements made from time to time by various law enforcement agencies urging vigilance, suggesting that there is a likelihood of another catastrophic incident.

It is not unreasonable to suggest that we need greater checks and balances concerning who enters this country and what his reasons are for being here. It is, however, to prey upon the real fears of the public by blindly accusing candidates of accepting foreign contributions without a shred of proof.

This is a highly controversial election, more or less, a consensus on the current state of the nation. If a party cannot stand on its record, its only option is to flail wildly with any accusation or condemnation of its opponents it can dream up.

We have allowed many foreign elements into this country through lax border enforcement. Hammas has camps all over the USA. The Muslim Brotherhood is nationwide and is intent on installing Shariah Law. It is being approached in a non violent way right now in the form of stealth Jihad or civilization jihad.It runs under the radar in western societies. Goal infiltrate and subvert. It is tailored to Liberal multicultural-minded non-Muslims. And is done in a way in which is difficult to recognize, oppose or counter. The objective is the same as violent jihad: subjugation of all non-Muslims to Shariah or House of Islam. The insinuation of Shariah into America's academic, law enforcement, banking and finance, government, military institutions and society. If you want to get better insight into the threat view the following material. Then ask yourself is this government playing right into their hands.

"Toni"We have allowed many foreign elements into this country through lax border enforcement. Hammas has camps all over the USA. The Muslim Brotherhood is nationwide and is intent on installing Shariah Law. It is being approached in a non violent way right now in the form of stealth Jihad or civilization jihad.

The only problem I have with what you wrote is that someone judged it as "nuts." When I was a child, as I was telling my future daughter-in-law this afternoon, I and my friends could walk just about anywhere in our city without anyone so much as acknowledging us. Adults were far too busy to be concerned with a pack of children walking to the park to swim or downtown to the movies. Parents of today cannot take for granted that their children are safe in even the most innocuous places. Recall that a group of school children were accompanied by their teacher to the World Trade Center on 9/11. Miraculously, they escaped unharmed, but no doubt, traumatized.

Whether we like it or not, fear, doubt and apprehension are governing our lives and making many of our decisions for us. Those who do not believe that there are networks of dangerous people imbedded in our society. Political correctness has given them a pass at legal points of entry. Our porous borders allow thousands to enter and then disappear into the population. The internet makes instantaneous communication possible among groups bent on our destruction.

Anyone who does not believe that the potential exists for either more violence or a subtle, incremental alteration in our society, recognizable only when it is too late to reverse, must be standing with his head in the sand.

No, I don't think you are nuts. I don't think I'm nuts. There are those on this site that do, but their rebuttal to my statements usually comes across as personal attacks on who or what they perceive me to be. Since I am older than many of the posters here, I can remember many things that they know nothing about. One especially big thing is that I was never afraid as a child. Now I think I have good reason to be.

We have drug cartel activity slithering state-side, the most violent gang MS13, criminals and rapists from mexico, and the possibility of dirty bombs or trained mexican or non-mexican trained terrorists slipping through our border. We must shut down the illegal crossings, check IDs for validity versus fraudulent creation, and KNOW what people are here in the United States. It's called survival and common sense and is what was meant by our forefathers "provide for the common defense." NATIONAL DEFENSE is about the only thing we should expect from our government
