Germany is called Germany because Julius Caesar way back met a tribe with such a name around modern-day Belgium. Yes, the first group to be called Germans lived in Belgium.

Right And Left Have Surprisingly Much In Common

Right And Left Have Surprisingly Much In Common

By Bob Small

At the annual Bill of Rights Dinner, Dec. 15, in Lancaster County — not to be confused with any ACLU commmemoration — I jotted information from various groups with the intent to research them. 

One lesson I’ve learned in my previous and current time in the Lefting, is that you can support a group if you agree with their main goal(s), even if not all of their 75 sub-goals.  This applies to any group I support unless their sub-goal is bringing back slavery or becoming a subject state of Communist China.

The Proud American Patriot Network of Warwick, Pa .  has a goal to elect “at all levels of government of candidates who will uphold the principles of the Declaration of  Independence, the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights”. They also support small business over large corporations, term limits for Congress members, and US manufacturing. 

Right And Left Have Surprisingly Much In Common

These are all goals we, left or right, can agree with.

Another component they have is a disaster response team, which is a fairly unique team for a Political Organization to have,  Again, we should all be able to support this.

On to some more questionable efforts, to some people, would be their Kyle Rittenhouse National Scholarship. My support for Kyle has been unashamedly public and a source of controversy among some of my friends, so this depends on how you view Kyle

As to their previous support of the Three Percenters, President T. J. Kosin said that when he realized that disaster relief was not their mission. “the relationship ended”.

When you learn new information, then that is the time to change your opinion and/or your affiliations: Proud American Patriots presidents shares beliefs

 Lastly, they are anti mask mandates, and will probably be in DC on Jan. 23.  While I, personally, choose to wear a mask in certain settings (esp, in high-risk areas like Swarthmore).  I don’t believe in mask mandates, or in most mandates that are discussed,  My more feminist friends wonder if they should be called persondates, but that’s a discussion that may never have its time.

Black Caucus Ignores Wage Gap Solutions

Black Caucus Ignores Wage Gap Solutions

By Joe Guzzard

The Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday came and went, as it always does, without a peep from the Congressional Black Caucus about how the influential U.S. representatives could most help African-Americans. If the powerful Caucus, 58 members strong, would demand an immigration pause, black Americans could close the earnings gap between them and other ethnic groups, mostly whites, that has plagued them for at least seven decades.

Economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis found that: “No progress has been made in reducing income and wealth inequalities between black and white households over the past 70 years.” Similar research from the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances showed that the median net worth of black households in 2016 was $17,150, while the same statistic at the same time period for white families was $171,000, nearly ten times as high.

Inarguably, more employment-authorized immigration weakens labor markets, and puts downward pressure on wages – the supply and demand law at its most basic. Unchecked immigration also gives cheap, labor-addicted corporations license to under-pay immigrants who need jobs but have limited skills.

In his January 10 Chicago TribuneOp-Ed, “A Major Culprit in the Wage Gap between Blacks and Whites is America’s Immigration Policy,” Frank Morris noted that when the Congressional Black Caucus votes in unison to expand immigration and to authorize more guest worker employment-based visas, they’re rejecting the counsel of earlier black heroes. Morris, drawing in part from Roy Beck’s recently published book, “Back of the Hiring Line,” wrote that during the decades following the Civil War, black leaders like social reformer Frederick Douglass, civil rights champion W.E.B. Du Bois, activist Marcus Garvey and labor unionist A. Philip Randolph who, in 1925, organized and led the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, the first successful African-American led labor union, all favored restricting immigration to help free enslaved people and their descendants. As Du Bois said, in words that ring as true today as they did then, stopping the importation of cheap labor “on any terms has been the economic salvation of American black labor.”

Black Caucus Ignores Wage Gap Solutions

Not only have blacks in Congress, as well as state and local governments’ black elected officials, turned a deaf ear to historically prominent figures like Douglass, Du Bois, Garvey and Randolph, but they’ve also ignored Coretta Scott King, Martin’s widow who is often referred to as “The First Lady of the Civil Rights Movement.” In 1991, after the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act passed with employer sanctions that penalized hiring illegal immigrants, the Senate began drafting provisions that would weaken those sanctions, and dilute interior enforcement. King and other black community leaders wrote to then-U.S. Sen. Orin Hatch (R- Utah) to urge that he postpone the introduction of his employer sanctions repeal legislation. The group wanted an opportunity to prove to the Senate that a repeal would have a devastating effect on the economic livelihood of low-skilled workers, a disproportionate percentage of whom were African-American and Hispanic. King’s efforts to persuade Hatch were unsuccessful. For more than 30 years, illegal immigrant labor has, just as King feared, severely affected blacks, Hispanics and other minorities, and has denied them an opportunity to move up and into the middle class.

The CBC has abandoned its constituency, choosing to support foreign nationals. Instead of helping struggling blacks, the CBC actively hurts them. The caucus accepts without criticism the current illegal alien border surge which will eventually loosen the labor market when the aliens are paroled with work permits. The caucus votes as a block in favor of immigration-expansion legislation including amnesty for millions, and it promotes paths to citizenship for deferred action and temporary protected status holders. American blacks are excluded from CBC’s progressive agenda which guarantees that, for years to come, the wage gap between African-Americans and whites will remain unchanged.

Nurses Describe Home Invasions After Blowing Whistle On Remdesivir

Nurses Describe Home Invasions After Blowing Whistle On Remdesivir
Steve Kirsch

Nurses Describe Home Invasions After Blowing Whistle On Remdesivir — Steve Kirsch, who until he started questioning the Covid narrative was tech royalty — i.e. MIT grad, inventor of the optical mouse, founder of InfoSeek — has a terrifying two-hour interview on Rumble with five nurses and affiliated professionals. The women describe loss of jobs, threats to licenses, intimidation by the FBI, and even death threats and home invasions after blowing the whistle on the treatment of Covid patients by hospitals.

The women are practically accusing the medical establishment of murder for money. They say the hospitals are pushing a Remdesivir protocol that leads to near certain death, while aggressively preventing the use of other treatments with a better success rate.

Crazy, huh?

The Un Vax Tax Happening Throughout The World; America Beware

The Un Vax Tax Happening Throughout The World

By Bob Small

My Philly friend, one Scott Normal Rosenthal, relocated to Vermont where he sends me blasts of e-mails on a daily basis.  One of these, though in an adjacent country.

The Premier of Quebec, Francois Legault, proposes that those adults who refuse to get vaccinated, must now pay a fine.  He wants these “refuseniks” to pay what he considers the increased cost on the health care system caused by thse unvaccinated.

It should be noted, that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, among others, has questions about this “tax”.  

Among other examples, a Quebecois father is being prevented from seeing his minor son due to being unvaccinated.  It should be noted that“Although nearly 90 percent of Quebec are vaccinated, they make up nearly a third of all hospital cases”.

According to Bloomburg News, these worrying sanctions are occuring throughout Europe;

Austria is planning mandatory vaccinations as of next month, with fines as high as 7,200 Euros ($8,151).

Greece is imposing a 100 Euro ($113) monthly fine on those unvaccinated and over 60.  In November, for example, only 60,00 among 580,000 of this population were jabbed.

Other countries, such as Finland and Slovakia,  are offering the carrot rather than the stick.  Slovakia is giving out 500 Euros ($573) to those over 60 recalcitrants.

The Un Vax Tax Happening Throughout The World

Lastly Lithuania does both, requiring Covid immunityu for any indoor venue.  However, they are also offering 100 Euros ($114.50) to anyone over 75 who gets a booster before March 31st.  For further examples, see These Countries Are Slapping the Unvaccinated With Fines …

Luckily, we live in these United States where neither the Federal Government would dare to dream of such a “Unvax Tax”.  And if they did surely it would go to a Court to be stopped while both online and offline writers fulminated, and tv and radio hosts spoke out against this.  Surely this would happen.  And anyway, don’t we trust the average American to know what a dictatorship is approaching, a “Faucism” to invent a combination word, and how to do non-violent resistance of whatever source they choose.  Surely, surely, surely.

As both Frank Zappa and Sinclair Lewis opined

“It can’t happen here”

Larry Krasner Impeachment Looms

Larry Krasner Impeachment Looms — The Pennsylvania Legislature appears to be about to impeach Larry Krasner — the guy George Soros hand-picked as Philadelphia District Attorney —as just revealed on WPHT’s Dom Giordano Show.

Murders during Krasner’s reign have risen from 317 in 2017 to 562 last year, a record.

Larry Krasner Impeachment Looms
A face only a Soros can love.

They are on a pace to hit 660 for 2022 according to Dom.

The Republicans control both chambers. The House, which has a 112-89 R edge, can impeach Krasner with a simple majority. Two-thirds of the Senate, though, is required for removal. The Republican advantage, there, is 28-20 with one independent who caucuses R, and one vacancy.

Will the R’s hold together? The guy behind the push is Senate Pro Tempore Jake Corman of the 34th District, so that seems likely.

Will four Democrats join them? Don’t rule it out. There are still Democrats who represent conservative areas that don’t hate police.

Regardless, I think Corman just got our vote for Governor.

Sorry Donna 🙂

Throwing Money At Migration Means More Failure

Throwing Money At Migration Means More Failure

By Joe Guzzardi

Vice President Kamala Harris, doubtlessly growing exasperated by the criticism she’s received for neglecting her Southwest border duties, called on Wall Street chief executive officers to help her sort out immigration problems. The summoned executives came from prominent commercial banks like J P Morgan Chase and Citigroup, as well as industry titans from Microsoft, Chobani, PepsiCo Latin America, Cargill and Airbnb.

In early January, Harris announced more than $1.2 billion in new funding to address, as she so often calls it, the “root causes” of migration to the United States. The concept is to foster more economic opportunity in the Northern Triangle countries of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador to deter illegal immigration. Harris made the announcement during a roundtable with the CEOs. Offering a preview of Harris’ announcement to reporters, a Senior White House representative praised “her leadership, her vision.”

A more complete analysis of the promised funding is that it represents a major commitment by the big businesses, but no money has been invested yet, no jobs have been created, and no one even knows if the subsidy, assuming it ever gets off the ground, will have the promised effect – deterring illegal immigration. A look back at history suggests that Harris’ throw-money-at-the-problem plan is doomed to fail, and colossally.

Not that long ago, in 2015 to be exact, and under exactly the identical circumstances of border surging that included large numbers of unaccompanied minors, the Obama administration proposed a huge investment in the Northern Triangle countries. Then-Vice-President Joe Biden wrote a New York Times op-ed titled “A Plan for Central America” which envisioned “systematic change” that would stabilize neighborhoods to reduce crime, encourage investments and create more effective tax collections among local governments. Biden promised that the Obama administration’s financial support would end “endemic violence and poverty.”

In his op-ed, Biden also compared the Obama administration’s proposed team up with the Alliance for Prosperity to the 1999 Plan Colombia, a failed six-year, $9 billion anti-drug experiment. By 2006, the State Department, then under President George Bush’s direction, shifted its funding to Mexico, and the Merida Initiative with part of its funding designated for Central America. The initiative promised to curtail “the illicit flow of drugs, people, arms, and cash,” a vow that has been broken virtually since the moment the ink dried on the pact.

Throwing Money At Migration Means More Failure

In 2010, the Central America program was separated from the Merida Initiative, and repackaged as CARI. From 2008 to 2013, the Merida Initiative and CARI received more than $2 billion and $574 million in federal funding, respectively. But CARI did nothing to stem violence or to reduce the migrant surge into the U.S. If anything, the opposite happened. In Honduras and Guatemala, homicide rates climbed steadily as U.S. funding for militarization via CARI began to flow. Honduras sent the largest number of kids to the U.S. border, followed by Guatemala. In 2012, two full years into CARI, there were 7,172 recorded homicides in Honduras, marking the most violent year in the country’s recent history. Murders in Honduras have since declined, but are still an unacceptably high at 3,496 in 2020.

Over the years, the U.S. has poured billions of dollars into the Northern Triangle countries with little to show for the money invested. Thousands of poetic words have been spoken and written like Biden’s and Harris’ about U.S. commitment to help the Northern Triangle nations help themselves. But Harris, the so-called border czar knows, as well as anyone, that with the borders wide open and beckoning, no amount of money or posturing, flowery editorials or public relations-written canned speeches will stop traffickers from bringing drugs and humans north. The National Center for Health Statistics reported that drug overdose deaths in the U.S. during 2020 soared 31 percent to 91,977. Sex trafficking for profit is big business, but prosecutions for those crimes are rare. Through its willful neglect, the Biden and Harris administration encourages trafficking despite its tragic and preventable cost in American lives.

As of early January 2022, the White House has given no indication that it will stop the huge inflow – a record high 1.7 million-plus during 2021 – of mainly poor, unskilled and under-educated migrants. Few fault migrants for wanting to improve their lives. But the unasked and therefore unanswered question is what will happen to education, health care, housing and myriad social challenges if, as appears probable, those waves of migrants continue coming. The latest Census Bureau data indicates that the U.S. has 37 million people that it classifies as living in poverty, and millions of Americans unemployed or underemployed. Struggling Americans are nowhere on the Biden administration’s radar.
