Pass it Along

This is the text of Rep. Tom McClintock, R-California, 4th District speech in the House.

M. Speaker:

I rise to take strong exception to the speech of the President of Mexico while in this chamber today.

The Mexican government has made it very clear for many years that it holds American sovereignty in contempt and President Calderons behavior as a guest of the Congress confirms and underscores this attitude.

It is highly inappropriate for the President of Mexico to lecture Americans on American immigration policy, just as it would be for Americans to lecture Mexico on its laws.

It is obvious that President Calderon does not understand the nature of America or the purpose of our immigration law.

Unlike Mexicos immigration law which is brutally exclusionary the purpose of Americas law is not to keep people out. It is to assure that as people come to the United States, they do so with the intention of becoming Americans and of raising their children as Americans.

Unlike Mexico, our nation embraces immigration and what makes that possible is assimilation.

A century ago President Teddy Roosevelt put it this way. He said:

In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the persons becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an AmericanThere can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isnt an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.

That is how we have built one great nation from the people of all the nations of the world.

The largest group of immigrants now comes from Mexico. A recent RAND discovered that during most of the 20th Century, while our immigration laws were actually enforced, assimilation worked and made possible the swift attainment of the American dream for millions of immigrants seeking to escape conditions in Mexico.

That is the broader meaning of our nations motto, e pluribus unum from many people, one people, the American people.

But there is now an element in our political structure that seeks to undermine that concept of E Pluribus Unum. It seeks to hyphenate Americans, to develop linguistic divisions, to assign rights and preferences based on race and ethnicity, and to elevate devotion to foreign ideologies and traditions, while at the same time denigrating American culture, American values and American founding principles.

In order to do so, they know that they have to stop the process of assimilation. In order to do that, they must undermine our immigration laws.

It is an outrage that a foreign head of state would appear in this chamber and actively seek to do so. And it is a disgrace that he would be cheered on from the left wing of the White House and by many Democrats in this Congress.

Arizona has not adopted a new immigration law. All it has done is to enforce existing law that President Obama refuses to enforce. It is hardly a radical policy to suggest that if an officer on a routine traffic stop encounters a driver with no drivers license, no passport, and who doesnt speak English, that maybe that individual might be here illegally.

And to those who say we must reform our immigration laws I reply that we dont need to reform them we need to enforce them. Just as every other government does. Just as Mexico does.

Above all, this is a debate of, by and for the American people. If President Calderon wishes to participate in that debate, I invite him to obey our immigration laws, apply for citizenship, do what 600,000 LEGAL immigrants to our nation are doing right now, learn our history and our customs, and become an American. And then he will have every right to participate in that debate.

Until then, I would politely invite him to have the courtesy while a guest of this Congress to abide by the fundamental rules of diplomacy between civilized nations not to meddle in each others domestic debates.

Blog Mohammed Day

For about an hour, I posted a lovely stick figure of my own creation. But after stumbling on this I knew I had a win/win.

This slanderous and without a doubt blasphemous cartoon was created by.... wait for it... a Muslim! By a mullah no less. This piece of propaganda was meant to stir up outrage throughout the Muslim ummah.

So, if someone feels like going all fatwah--eee, I would suggest directing your pointless rage at the mullah who made this picture to mess with your head.

update: Imam Ahmad Abu Laban of the Islamisk Trossamfund and Akhmad Akkari were the mullahs responsible for the cartoon below - please contact either of these two men if you have a problem with this depiction and ask exactly what did they mean?

update 2: As of today, we've removed the image. Mainly because we found the cartoon offensive and poorly done. I strongly recomend that Imam Abu Laban and Akhmad Akkari work on their drawing skills.

Take Responsibility? No!

So much has gone on at such a rapid pace and all of it directed towards the proverbial lemming cliff, that commenting has hardly been worth the effort.

But I would like to take a moment and tell Greece to get bent.

Bloomberg) -- Greece is considering taking legal action against U.S. investment banks that might have contributed to the countrys debt crisis, Prime Minister George Papandreou said.

Honestly, step up and man up. When you dig yourself into a literal hole, don't blame anyone but yourself if you throw the shovel away.

They Said It: Part 2

Following the attempted bombing here's what our leaders and pundits had to say.

If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that, Bloomberg said. Homegrown maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesnt like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.

- Michael Bloomberg

I mean the thing is is that and I get frustrated and there was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country because there are a lot of people who want to use this terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way. I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry.

- Contessa Brewer

If we tried hard enough there's about twenty more head in the sand remarks along this line, Geraldo being the least interesting. But Bloomberg is an elected official not an entertainer and should consider his words more carefully in lieu of facts.

Remember kids - there is no JIHAD -

Nothing from Obama, he's much to busy insulting the Jonas Brothers.
