Delco Council Told ‘Jihadist Graffiti’ At Don Guanella Buildings

Delco Council Told ‘Jihadist Graffiti’ At Don Guanella Buildings — Delaware County Council, tonight, June 5, was told that “jihadist graffiti” was found in one of the former Don Guanella buildings on the county’s Delco Woods park.

The site is being considered by the county for a mental facility but many suspect it there are plans to use it to house illegals.

Charlie Alexander of Marple told Council in the first round of questions of finding graffiti saying “death to infidels” in one of the buildings. He displayed a picture of graffiti which also included an anarchist symbol.

He said the building was unsecured and easy to enter. Alexander asked why Council is letting the facilities rot and why doesn’t the community have access to either the basketball court or a swimming pool on the site.

Jimmy Small of Marple told Council he was with Alexander when they found the graffiti. He said they saw a yellow Kraft bus leaving the property.

Howard Alexander, Charlie’s father and a contractor, noted that water and electricity remain on at the property. He said the buildings are in such poor repair it would not be cost-effective to renovate them. He recommended they be torn down.

Kevin Corrigan (phonetic) of Marple said he was ashamed at the anti-Biden clothing some in the audience was wearing but expressed despair the Council is willing to break their promise to keep Don Guanella a park. He said they have a “constituency of none” on the matter.

Kathy from Haverford noted that Councilman Kevin Madden had an article in the Delaware County Daily Times in which he is now saying a mental facility would house but 16 persons. The original estimate had been 28.

Delco Heard Comments On $7.4 Million Action Plan

Delco Heard Comments On $7.4 Million Action Plan — Delaware County Council, tonight, June 5, took public comment on the proposed list of awards approved May 1 for the 2024 Annual Action Plan.

The plan calls for spending $7,441,187 in federal grants for housing and development projects along with an additional $996,818 in AHF money including $16,057 to rehabilitate a home in Haverford.

Media GOP Chairman Michael Straw noted the budget includes $368,370 in contingency spending. He suggested that council include the organizations receiving money in all the line items.

Joy Schwartz of Upper Darby said it would be very helpful to include information about any matching money the county is requiring for grants.

Kimberly Brown of Colwyn took issue with a grant being sent to her borough. She said the application was filled improperly as Borough Council did not have at either its February or March meetings to approve it. She said the application should be voided.

It was noted that cost overruns of less than 25 percent don’t need council approval for covering.

Secret Service Driver Kept From Testifying For Trump

Secret Service Driver Kept From Testifying For Trump — The crazy claim that President Trump attempted to wrench the steering wheel from his Secret Service was promoted by the kangaroo congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 protests and diligently reported as plausible by the controlled corporate media.

Apparently Trump was trying to force the Secret Service to take him to the Capitol so he could lead an insurrection or something.

It was based on a tale spun by Cassidy Hutchinson who was an assistant to Mark Meadows who was The Donald’s final chief of staff.

It was bad enough that this bizarre story was taken at face value, but kangaroo committee hid indisputably exculpatory evidence that would have quashed it in its crib.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley has a column, today, June 5, noting how the driver said nothing of the sort happened and sought to tell the committee such. His testimony, however, was stonewalled until the false and crazy tale became ingrained in the public knowledge.

Those who run our nation are worse than mad. People better wake up else real misery awaits.

The 1924 Immigration Act From A 2024 Lens

The 1924 Immigration Act From A 2024 Lens

By Joe Guzzardi

A century ago, President Calvin Coolidge signed the Johnson-Reed Immigration Act, also known as the Immigration Act of 1924, which precipitated a two-generation-long pause in mass migration. Upon Coolidge’s signature, multiple benefits to citizen workers ensued immediately. Immigration dropped from 707,000 in 1924 to 294,000 in 1925. Within a year, more than 400,000 fewer job seekers entered the U.S. During the next 45 years, the same time length as the Great Wave which lasted from 1870 to 1924, immigration averaged 200,000 annually, dramatically less than earlier totals.

The immigration pause meant that those who arrived during the Great Wave had time to assimilate into a stronger, more cohesive nation. Monetary benefits—higher wages— accrued to blue-collar workers, and especially to black laborers who prospered at an even faster rate than their white contemporaries.  Black American leaders have been historically onboard with significant immigration reductions. Of course they are. Basic economics 101 dictates that a tight labor supply is good for workers. When the 1924 act cut off the large supply of foreign-born labor, employers had nowhere to turn except to American workers who they had previously underpaid and subjected to often abysmal on-the-job conditions. And without Congress authorizing a continuous stream of foreign labor into eastern and Mid-Atlantic factories and steel mills, roughly six million southern blacks migrated north to take advantage of newly created job opportunities. W.E.B. DuBois wrote in the 1929 issue of the NAACP magazine The Crisis that the 1924 legislation’s “stopping…the importing of cheap white labor on any terms has been the economic salvation of American Black labor.”

In 2020, the Brookings Institution issued a paper titled “Examining the Black-White Wealth Gap” that chronicled U.S. history’s multiple examples of black earnings being denied before it had a chance to grow and create generational wealth. At the time of the Brookings’ study’s publication, median black household wealth was less than six percent of white wealth. African American households, Brookings found, had too few net assets to withstand even temporary financial setbacks. A major cause that prevented blacks from moving up the economic ladder was more than fifty years of high immigration that began with the Hart-Cellar Immigration Act of 1965, which loosened labor markets and kicked off another immigration Great Wave which endures today.

One hundred years after Coolidge, immigration is more contentious than at any other point in American history. President Joe Biden’s immigration agenda represents the worst of worlds. Millions of unvetted illegal immigrants, of which a significant percentage are working age males, have crossed the U.S. border apparently with few marketable skills in today’s technology-oriented society. Most seem to have come to the U.S. in need of affirmative benefits, or perhaps the benefits were the incentive. The consequences of Biden’s welcome-the-world immigration agenda are reflected in the Census’ report that the U.S.’s foreign-born population hit 46.2 million or 13.9 percent of the overall population in 2022, an all-time high. In 1970, the foreign-born numbered 9.6 million or 4.7 percent of the total U.S. population.

The largest population percentage increases from 2021 to 2022 by country were Afghanistan, up 229 percent; Venezuela, up 22 percent; Honduras, Nepal, and Kenya, each up 10 percent; Ghana, Brazil, and Colombia, each up 9 percent; and Ethiopia and Ecuador, both up 8 percent. The Center for Immigration Studies compiled the data which it collected from publicly available federal statistics. Too many people arriving in too short a period strains vital social services like medical care and education and depletes irreplaceable natural resources like water and agricultural land, exactly the outcome that the 1924 legislation prevented.

Because it imposed national quotas that favored northern Europeans and excluded other nations, the 1924 act was flawed. But its intention to reduce immigration to manageable levels was not. The 1924 Congress expressed the noble desire that the nation grow at a slower, more sustainable pace and that its citizens’ needs be prioritized. Since Biden and his inside circle have different, nefarious objectives, legislation like the Immigration Act of 1924 won’t happen during what remains of the president’s term. Even truly securing the border may be too much to hope for, but it would be a good starting point.
