“People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we get along? It’s just not right. It’s not going to change anything. Let’s try to work it out.”
Rodney King, 1992 LA race riots
Today, California sloshes nostril-deep in its 37.5 million population overload. It grows by 1,700 people daily! Do the math! By 2050, if this immigration-driven population phenomenon continues, California explodes to 79.1 million people. (Source: “Projecting the U.S. Population to 2050” by Jack Martin and Stanley Fogel, March 2006.)
If you think Los Angeles’ smog, traffic, water and power shortages create problems today, hold on to your girdle because you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
In Dr. Otis Graham’s book, Unguarded Gates: A History of America’s Immigration Crisis, he writes, “Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide, but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all—ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet.”
In literary terms, it’s called ‘hubris’ or false pride. Many of Shakespeare’s protagonists suffered this self-destructive trait. In the Bush years, his cabinet and Congress epitomized ‘hubris’ through their incompetent, if not arrogant actions.
How completely unconscious were members of the U.S. Senate when they attempted to pass S.B. 1639 in 2007? It jumped current legal immigration from 1.2 million annually to 2.4 million. That’s like seeing a child with his clothes on fire running out of a burning building, but instead of spraying him with water, the firemen spray gasoline on the child. In this case, the current president and Congress pour more ‘gasoline’ onto the fire by adding millions of immigrants into our country. Note that Obama voted to give amnesty to 20 million illegal migrants and double annual legal immigration.
Scant rational thought or logical actions go into what our leaders force into this nation via immigration.
What are some of the results? Out of the next 100 million added to America, 70 million will be immigrants. When we add that many people from foreign countries to the United States in three decades—we gang-tackle our civilization by adding incompatible cultures, religions and languages. We cripple our educational system. We overload our infrastructure. We demean citizenship. Assimilation cannot occur. We fracture our identity. For a simple example: France burned in December 2005 when immigrants firebombed 10,000 cars, burned houses, killed French citizens and caused three weeks of mayhem.
With the child on fire illustration, what burns in this country? For starters, we scorch the foundation of our society by destroying our most precious bond—our English language. Without a single language, we shall cease to continue as a cohesive civilization.
Samuel Huntington wrote the best seller: Who Are We? He stated, “By 2001 Congress appropriated $446 million for bilingual programs, supplemented by huge amounts of state funding.” Ironically, so many legal and illegal immigrants find they don’t have to speak English because none of their friends speak it. Koreans, Vietnamese, Hmongs, Middle Easterners, Russians and dozens of other immigrants cannot speak English and will not invest in becoming Americans.
Thus, these new immigrants live in America, but they cannot speak, and do not think like Americans. What’s more, they could care less. No investment! They enclave themselves into separate groups. Los Angeles stands as a polyglot of seething anti-American bias by Mexicans and their children. One look at Detroit’s growing Muslim population portends what happened to Paris, France, i.e., complete separation from the host country by new immigrants.
When you add millions of immigrants that cannot speak our national language, they emotionally, physically and intellectually separate. A nation cannot long survive when its citizens cannot communicate with one another.
As we spin ourselves into massive population overload from third world countries, the labor pool generates millions of unskilled bodies that depress wages. Dr. Vernon Briggs of Cornell University said, “Efforts in the United States to reduce the incidence of poverty have been hampered, since 1965, by the parallel revival from out of the nation’s distant past of the phenomenon of mass immigration.
“Unless comprehensive immigration reforms are added to the arsenal of anti-poverty policies, efforts to reduce poverty in the country in the twenty-first century will be little more than a ride on a squirrel wheel—a lot of effort expended but little progress achieved.”
As these people avalanche onto our shores, can’t speak English and possess few skills, they and we fragment faster than a grenade. They succumb to a profound racism and distrust against their host country.
“Immigrants devoted to their own cultures and religions are not influenced by the secular politically correct façade that dominates academia, news-media, entertainment, education, religious and political thinking today,” said James Walsh, former Associate General Counsel of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service. “They claim the right not to assimilate, and the day is coming when the question will be how can the United States regulate the defiantly unassimilated cultures, religions and mores of foreign lands? Such immigrants say their traditions trump the U.S. legal system. Balkanization of the United States has begun.”
For example, Muslims practice female genital mutilation (FGM). It’s 6th century Dark Ages barbarism alive in the 21st century. It occurs today in Detroit, Michigan, Freemont, California and Denver, Colorado, and wherever Islam grows in America. Seven years ago, hundreds of cases of little girls suffering from infected genitalia, after being slashed with razors and glass, landed in Colorado hospitals from the FGM ritual. Islamic practitioners, without sterile room technique or anesthesia, cut out the labia majora and minora as well as the clitoris of girls, usually less than nine years of age.
Led by Colorado House Representative Dorothy Rupert, lawmakers passed a new law to halt it. The practice didn’t stop; it torpedoed underground. What happens when Muslim culture becomes the majority and votes it into legal practice? What happens when Mexican culture citizens vote horse tripping, cock fighting, bull fighting, Santeria (animal sacrifice already occurring in Florida) and dog fighting into law? What other inhumane practices do other cultures import into America?
Have you seen a country devolve? In the Middle East today, Muslims stone women to death for adultery. They won’t allow women to drive. Women cannot go out in public without a male relative at their side. They demand separate swimming pool times for men and women. They make women hide their faces with a burka into ‘non-beingness’. They practice Sharia Law which proves harsh and diametrically opposed to parliamentary law.
Don’t think it can happen in America? Fox News, July 25, 2008 reported a Muslim honor killing in Garrett, Texas when a 12 year old girl called 911, screaming, “My dad shot me; I am dying.” She died before an ambulance arrived. Reason: father didn’t like her wearing western jeans and blouses.
In Clayton County, Georgia, July 10, 2008, a Pakistani immigrant father, Chaudry Rashid strangled his daughter for not accepting his choice of a husband. She wanted a divorce. She was 14 when she died.
In New York, February 16, 2009, FOX News, Joshua Rhett Miller reported, “The estranged wife of a Muslim television executive feared for her life after filing for divorce last month from her abusive husband,” her attorney said — and was found beheaded Thursday in his upstate New York television studio. Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37, was found dead on Thursday at the offices of Bridges TV in Orchard Park, N.Y., near Buffalo. Her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, has reportedly been charged with second-degree murder. “She was very much aware of the potential ramification of her filing for divorce might have," said attorney Elizabeth DiPirro, whose law firm represented Aasiya Hassan in the divorce proceeding. "But she wanted to proceed despite the potential for it to erupt."
Under Sharia Law in the Middle East, such an ‘honor killing’ remains accepted in Islamic society. Ann Curry on NBC hosted a news piece, “Honor Killings in America.” She reported on the astounding rise of honor killings in America by Muslim immigrants.
The new House of Representatives Muslim Keith Ellison (D-MN) took the oath of office January 20, 2007. He placed his hand and allegiance on the Koran. The irony of this stems from the fact that the Koran stands in direct conflict with the U.S. Constitution. Minnesota voters elected a man whose prime directive from his Koran is to convert or kill all non-believers. Specifically, that’s all Jews and Christians. He exemplifies the beginning salvo in the disintegration of America.
How far do we want to regress into that arcane religiosity in America? One look at the sectarian violence by the Sunnis, Kurds and Shiites in Iraq should give you pause for concern. One look at the unending violence between Israel and Palestine should give you a clue as to our fate. If you didn’t grasp what happened in Paris, France, you will experience it when it erupts here.
As to the ‘lifeboat’ metaphor for America, how many people does it take to sink a lifeboat? Short answer: the last one to come aboard that overwhelms the craft’s ability to remain afloat. When you look around, countries like China, Congo, India, Mexico, Bangladesh, Darfur, Sudan, Somalia and dozens of others already exceed lifeboat capacity.
That brings us, fellow Americans and global citizens, to the yet unresolved decision regarding adding 100 million more people to the United States by 2035. As we degrade our ability to maintain our civilization by adding disparate cultures, languages and the least educated and poorest of the planet, we reduce ourselves to the same kind of conditions they fled. At the same time, not one, single core problem has been solved in their countries. We import their dilemmas into our frayed society.
If you become emotional about this, that won’t solve their problems or ours. Bring your greatest sympathy to their plight, but it won’t change the fact of carrying capacity limits in our civilization. Even if you send food through church group outreach programs, this exacerbates the problem because that food allows third world people to multiply their numbers—causing greater starvation down the road. “More population growth leads to more demand for food,” said author of Peak Everything, Richard Heinberg. “We are describing a classic self-reinforcing feedback loop.”
Such a paradigm proves increasingly lethal. Another 100 million people careens our country into the same consequences as their countries.
This doesn’t have to happen! We can change course by our actions. Whatever your passion, you will be able to take action with the last three ‘solution chapters’ in this book.
