Dividing the Conservative Coalition

US Mexico Border Fence
House Republican “leaders” including Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy, and Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan are preparing to unveil a major package of immigration bills this week that is backed by the US Chamber of Commerce and the cheap labor wing of the business community. 

We can pretty well tell that this is going to be a cave-in just by looking at the way it is being sold; “immigration reform,” not border security.

Michigan Republican Gov. Rick Snyder pretty well summed-up the big business arguments in favor of so-called comprehensive immigration reform at a recent forum on immigration: "We need comprehensive immigration reform. To be blunt, we have a dumb system," said Snyder, who according to NewsMax then described efforts in Michigan to grant visas to immigrants for work. He said immigration reform would "turbo-charge" the economy in places like Detroit.

Of course our "dumb" system would be a lot smarter if it was actually enforced by President Obama, but that is another column.

So help us out here Governor Snyder. 

According to John Gallagher of the Detroit Free Press, at 8.4%, Michigan’s unemployment rate remains well above prerecession levels. In 1998, the monthly unemployment rate dropped to a low of 3.7% in Michigan.

After the state’s economy bottomed out in 2009, Michigan added 57,200 jobs in 2010, 97,000 in 2011, and 37,400 in 2012, reports Gallagher.

Michigan gained 64,000 jobs in 2013; that number of jobs wouldn’t even fill the stadium for the Michigan State Spartans (capacity 74,000) and falls far short of a capacity crowd of over 100,000 for the University of Michigan Wolverines.

And Governor Snyder thinks adding more low wage workers to Michigan’s declining labor force will “turbo-charge” the economy?

As our friend Dr. Lee Edwards of the Heritage Foundation once put it, nothing matches the fury of a woman scorned except the fury of a conservative betrayed. 

Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy and Ryan have concocted a plan to move the big business cheap labor bill after the bulk of the Republican primaries have passed. They don’t seem to grasp the lesson the conservative grassroots offered Republicans in 2006 and 2008 when the House Republican establishment was tossed out of power for betraying conservative principles. In caving in to the cheap labor wing of the business community and the Democrats race-baiting they are destroying the coalition that brought them to power in the Tea Party Wave election of 2010. 

In 2009 and 2010 the Democrats under President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi drove millions of voters right back into the arms of the Republicans. But if Republicans return to their bad habits—if they start working for K Street lobbyists instead of Main Street—they will, in our estimation, pay a terrible price. 

Rep. Raúl R. Labrador (ID-1), once a leading immigration negotiator in the House, recently told The New York Times it would be a mistake to push forward on a package of immigration reform bills.

"The president has shown he’s not willing to work with us on immigration,” Labrador said. “It’s not worth having a party divided when we have so many issues we can come together on."

Congressman Labrador has it right.

People are already beginning to say: Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, and the Republican Party is dead.

In 2010 voters gave Republicans one more chance to get it right. They have been on probation. If they made any effort at all to hold the 2010 Tea Party Wave coalition together it would realign American politics for a generation or more in favor of Republicans. By passing an amnesty bill they are violating their probation. The limited government constitutional conservative coalition that brought them to power in 2010 will undoubtedly form again to throw them out if they pass an amnesty for illegal aliens bill.

Dear Mr. Beck;

Your country needs your help. If you are not the only person who can do this, you are the one who can do it best.

If you get this, please drop an e-mail to the address above. Once I know you have seen it, I will stop sending it. If you want to let this country go into the toilet, FINE. I have e-mailed and snail mailed this to you several times with no response. I have also sent it to numerous of the conservative elite. I have gotten no response. I don’t know if that is because it got stuck in the phalanx of clerks and apparatchiks that I am sure screen all of your mails, you haven’t the time to respond, or you are elitist snobs who don’t entertain ideas from “the little people.” I am one of “the little people” and proud of it. It is we, “the little people” who have all of the good ideas. Sometimes you elitists take these little sparks and run with them setting the world on fire. Please, please, please take this one and run with it!


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Establish a political party that will endorse candidates that promise to support and support conservative, libertarian and possessive individualist principles. Any Republican who wants to be elected to any office will need our support. We will defeat any Republicans who do not support our program.

THIS IS A CALL TO ARMS! The United States of America is on the razor edge of disaster! We need your help to fix it.

From 2009 to the present, President Barack Hussein Obama has gone out of his way to destroy American culture, economy, power and prestige. The American people knew it. All we needed to defeat Obama was a charismatic candidate. The Republican Party gave us a boring limousine-liberal-Rockefeller-RINO, who obviously didn’t even want the job. Romney was the media’s and the RINO's selection. He lost by 2.8 million votes. An estimated 4 million Republicans stayed home.

If Gov. Sarah Palin had run, she would have won!

By 2017:

• Unless the Israeli Defense Force can stop her, Iran will have an arsenal of nuclear weapons which she will have used to destroy Israel and possibly a couple of cities in the U.S. or crippled us with an electromagnetic pulse attack. The United States will not have responded.

• The U.S. will be a second-rate military power with a European-style socialist economy — if we are lucky!

• The U.S. dollar will be next to valueless.

• America will be finished!

Obama can do all of this with executive orders!

You can reverse this collapse! Get with the people mentioned above and other like-minded groups and take over the American political system. Select a Reaganesque presidential candidate. The best one on the scene right now is Gov. Sarah Palin — if you can persuade her to serve! If not, find a good-looking, charismatic, erudite governor or military general to represent us. Have your state and local Tea Party and allied group members find candidates for every other elective office.

By the end of the Obama administration the word “Democrat” will be an obscenity. To many of us the Republican In Name Only Party is also a dirty word. I would rather be a member of a party called The American Patriot Party.

A quick Google search discloses that there is a nascent American Patriot Party. I have no interest in it I just like the name — I am not a Democrat or a Republican I am an American Patriot. We can take it over or find a similar name. I briefly looked at their website. Most of it I think we agree with. What we don’t, we can change. A political party is, after all, a democracy. Invite all of the people on your and like-minded organizations’ mailing lists to become founding members with a donation of $whatever. If they do, send them a nice certificate. It will become a family heirloom!

We should immediately begin educating the American public. If a Republican incumbent is willing to get with our program, he can join our party and sign a written pledge. He had better toe the line. Allow local chapters to select candidates for every elected office from Senator to school board member. All of our candidates will run both as American Patriots and as Republicans. They should all begin campaigning — educating the public – immediately. This will also include fund raising. I have some ideas on how to do this. Send me a direct e-mail address.

During the midterm election each of our candidates will vie for the Republican nomination. If he gets it, he runs as the Republican and American Patriot candidate. Make sure the Republican Party understands that whether it nominates him or not he shall run. Most conservative Republican office holders will join. Some RINOs will too. We will probably beat both Democrats and RINOs in some midterm races and throw some to the Democrats. Fine, that will be a demonstration of power to the Republican Party. We can avoid losing the House if we want to. Although it may be fun to let the American people see what a mess an unrestrained Marxoid party can make in two years. That would make our victory overwhelming in 2016! But I recommend we ensure that we hold the house and if possible, take the Senate. Hopefully our victory in 2014 or 2016 will be overwhelming enough to amend the Constitution to forever keep socialism from our shores.

Every Democrat and non-A.P. Republican should be primaried. For example put Cindy Sheehan up against Rep. Nancy Pelosi in a well-funded challenge! We can fund it, sub-Rosa by asking all of our members to donate $5 or $10 to a political action committee that we set up and control. Create a really bitter primary campaign. I have some ideas about this too. Send me a direct e-mail address. Maybe we can damage Pelosi so badly that an A.P. Republican can win. If not, Sheehan would be better than Pelosi — at least she will not be Speaker! Another example; put an A.P. up against John Boehner in a well-funded primary challenge. Send the big cry baby home in tears!

Beginning immediately and continuing through the next presidential election cycle, our candidate for President and our candidates for every other elective office run both as Republicans and as American Patriots. Make sure the Republicans understand that Republication nomination or not, our candidates are going to run for all elective offices. If the Republicans want to win they will nominate our candidates. No! we shall not allow Carl Rove to pick our candidates!

When the Republicans nominate our candidates we subsume the Republican Party into the American Patriot Party, leaving all RINOs, professional Republican functionaries, consultants and hangers-on behind. For those with an emotional attachment to the G.O.P., we will keep the name but I would still rather be an American Patriot than a Republican.

Any of our candidates the Republicans don’t nominate will run as American Patriots. In that case, most of the Republican grassroots voters will go with them. With a dead Democrat Party and an eviscerated Republican Party, we will win! Win or lose, the American Patriot Party continues to educate the American public, raise funds and run for office.

I hope there is still time to save our country. Will you please help? Thank you and

Best Regards
David T. Givens, Ph.D.

Labrador is right again

Congressman Labrador is one of the smartest legislators in Washington DC. He is resolute, articulate and polite. He is everything we had hoped Paul Ryan would be. Raul should be speaker of the house.



Solve Our Illegal Immigration Problem!

Our borders are open. One to three million invaders flow across our southern border every year. There are an estimated 20 to 40 million invaders in this country already.

Congress is now dominated by a bunch of lily-livered liberal Democrats. They are opposed by a bunch of linguini-spined conservative Republicans and cowardly liberal RINOs.

All three groups want to grant these invaders amnesty under another name. They want to set them on a “path to citizenship” which hopefully will make them grateful Democrats. Or they want to “regularize their status” which hopefully will keep them working at substandard wages in Republican-owned businesses.

Neither of these outcomes will happen.

First, immigrants are, for the most part, hard-working people. Most of them are Latinos, who are Catholic. These immigrants, whether Latino or other, are not likely to buy into the Democrat pro-abortion welfare state. If they become citizens, most, will eventually become Republicans.

Second, if we “regularize” their status they are no longer illegal. They don’t have to work for substandard wages. They will demand what the traffic will bear to do the work. To maintain the cheap labor the Republicans want they will have to bring in a whole new bunch of invaders. This, of course, is their plan.

The overwhelming majority of Americans — liberals, moderates and conservatives; Democrats, independents and Republicans — want this stopped.

This is a relatively easy thing to do. It can be done in two phases.

The most difficult aspect of this plan is making it happen. There is only one force on Earth that can make this happen — We the People! So forward this message to all of your acquaintances and call them in a couple of days to encourage them to join

Phase One — Close Our Borders!

The first thing we need to do to solve our illegal immigration problem is close the borders.

1. Build a double fence along the entire U.S. southern border. A fence will not prevent invasion but it will make it much more difficult.

These fences will be set up on two berms that run right along the border. The two berms will be at least 500 yards apart. The fences will be at least ten feet high and topped with razor wire. The southernmost fence will be completely screened to prevent potential invaders from observing activity between or beyond the fences. There will be sensors along the entire route to detect surface and underground movement. There will be video cameras spaced to provide over watch of the entire border. There will be Border Patrol stations inside the fences spaced at intervals that will allow them to respond to breaches in the fence promptly. The monitors for the video cameras will be in the border patrol stations nearest the camera. When an incursion is detected, the nearest border patrol stations will coordinate a response.

The open borders whackos will claim that we cannot afford the expense. Nonsense! This will cost much less than a highway of the same length and it is much more important. It can be built by Army combat engineers as a part of their training — a necessary expense that we already incur.

Some people would like to build a “virtual” fence. This is a good idea but not instead of a real fence — in addition to it.

2. Establish a military desert patrolling training area along the U.S. southern border. This area will be at least 100 miles wide.

Many will object to the cost of this land acquisition. Most of this land already belongs to the U.S. government. Most of the owners of the privately owned land will be happy to cooperate if they are compensated for any damage that the military training activities cause. The land of any who are unwilling to cooperate can be condemned and turned over to the Department of Defense. Marine, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard personnel will train in patrolling and ambush techniques in this area.

Their training will, of course, be directed at locating, ambushing and capturing “opposing forces,” other members of the Armed Forces who are pretending to be the enemy. The trainees and OPFORs will inevitably come across terrorists, drug smugglers, illegal aliens and other invaders. Part of their training will be to locate and detain invaders and turn them over to the appropriate authorities.

Some will object to this as a violation of the posse comitatus act. The posse comitatus act was passed to end the post-Civil War reconstruction era to prevent the use of the U.S. Army for supervising elections in the South. As amended to include the Air Force, it reads:

Sec. 1385. - Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus

Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

The Supreme Court should conclude that the defense of the border from invasion is “authorized by the Constitution.” But who knows what kind of fatwa the nine idiots of the Supreme Court will hand down. If the Supremes do not think the constitution authorizes defense of the border, Congress can act.

The military has lots of sensing toys. All American Armed Forces have a wide variety of surveillance equipment from satellites to manned reconnaissance aircraft to unmanned drones to viewing and listening devices. The Air Force can provide satellite and aerial reconnaissance of the border. The Navy and Coast Guard have various radar and sonar that they can use to observe coastal infiltration routes. The Army has unmanned drones, various ground listening devices and other sensors. All operators of these surveillance devices require training. This training will be concentrated on observing our borders.

Ground forces (SEALS, Marines and soldiers) from basic trainees to experienced warriors, about to be deployed or redeployed to Wherever, will practice their ambush, patrolling and reconnaissance skills in the desert patrolling training area.

As a part of this training, the Air Force will observe opposing forces and pass the information along to the ground forces. The ground forces will monitor OPFOR movements move ahead of them and set up ambushes. As a part of their training in reconnaissance and patrolling, the Air Force will detect everyone on the border. They will inevitably detect invaders. The information will be transmitted to the ground forces. These invaders will be detained and turned over to the appropriate authorities.

These two simple steps will reduce illegal immigration to a trickle.

Phase Two — Send Invaders Home.

The open border amnesty crowd says you can’t round up 20-30 million illegal aliens and send them home. Nonsense!

Most of these invaders will go home on their own if we do two things — remove the financial incentives that draw them here and make getting caught draconian.

Punish Employers of Invaders!

If we remove the financial magnets that draw people here illegally, they will: one, stop coming, and; two, go home.

1. We have laws on the books making it illegal to hire illegal aliens. We need to strengthen and enforce the law. Make management responsible. Make the punishment for allowing an illegal alien to work on your property or in your business up to a $10 thousand fine and up to a year in prison for every incident. Define an incident is any day that an illegal alien was working on the property. Make everyone who participated in the employment liable. Subcontracting a service is participating. In a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) Act-type provision make the possible confiscation of the subject business and property a provision of the law. Additionally, any company that is convicted of hiring an illegal alien is barred from contracting or serving as a subcontractor for the federal government, any of its subordinate jurisdictions or any company that supplies an American government. Any individual who is convicted is permanently barred from employment by an American government, or any company that supplies an American government. That will get the attention of managers, employees and stockholders. THEN ENFORCE THAT LAW!

Open an enhanced e-verify web site that will allow an employer to put an employee’s social security number into the system and find out the name, age and employment history of the person who holds that social security number.

If John Doe works for you or applies for a job, you put in his S.S.N. If it turns out that the S.S.N. is fake or belongs to someone else you fire him or don’t hire him. If Doe is dead, you fire him or don’t hire him. If he is currently employed somewhere else you call his other employer and find out why.

Give employers a 30-day window to ensure that all employees are legal. Then set the I.N.S. on them.

The I.N.S. could first raid all of the plants of a major food processing company — an industry that is notorious for ignoring immigration law. Seal the exits and search the personnel computers.

Run the S.S.N.s. If there are illegal workers in any of the plants arrest them, all of the human resources workers and the entire chain of command above H.R. They would each be liable for up to a $10 thousand fine and up to a year in prison for every day each of these illegal workers has worked for the company. Have a big public “perp walk.” This will send a message to management of other companies.

Fully investigate and prosecute any tax, Social Security, or other infractions. And announce that this company will no longer be allowed to supply the government or any institution that is in any way supported by or does business with the government. If the company is unable to pay its fines, confiscate it and sell its assets to its competitors. This will bankrupt the company and send a message to the stockholders of other companies.

Instantly, large American companies will get rid of illegal aliens.

But there aren’t enough I.N.S. agents to raid every business in America.

2. Let’s get some bounty hunters! Bounty hunters have the authority to search private property and arrest people — all without regard to rights guaranteed by the constitution. We need a similar law for illegal immigrant hunters.

Private citizens can be deputized by the I.N.S. A deputy would have the authority to require the owner, employer and employees working at any location to prove that everyone working on the property is legal. He or she would have the authority to arrest, cite and establish bail/fine. He or she would also have the authority to collect a check payable to the U.S. Treasury and take the property of anyone whose check bounced.

A deputy wanders around taking pictures with his cell phone of the people working on a property. With this evidence that a business or farm has people working on the property he speaks to the owner or manager. He shows his evidence to the owner or manager. If, by going on the Social Security website, the owner or manager cannot prove that all of the workers are legal, the deputy gives him a summons and sets a fine/bail — the maximum he thinks the owner can afford. The owner can write a check to the U.S. Treasury and either go to court or forfeit the bail.

The Treasury cashes the check and sends half to the bounty hunter. If the cited person wants a trial, fine. He will be prosecuted for all infractions the I.N.S., I.R.S., S.S.A. and F.B.I. can find. Most will forfeit the bail. If the check bounces, the deputy takes the business and the property.

This would be very painful for the employer and very lucrative for the Treasury and the deputy.

The owner knows that the next day the same deputy or another deputy can conduct the same raid and fine him again. He will ensure that everyone working on his property or in his business is legal.

If a deputy notices that his next-door neighbor has hired someone to mow his lawn, he takes a picture of the guy working and asks the homeowner for proof of legal employment. If he doesn’t get it, he collects a fine/bail from the homeowner and sends the check to the Treasury. If the check bounces the deputy takes the house.

Anyplace else a deputy thinks he can find an illegal worker he goes. Gardening, lawn-care, domestic and other independent contractors and workers would soon be legal.

3. Withhold federal funds and grants from any state that does not require all of its agencies and its subordinate jurisdictions to enforce U.S. immigration law.

Some cities and states forbid their employees from reporting illegal aliens to the appropriate authorities. Some even forbid inquiring into immigration status. This is probably illegal. Officials swear to enforce the laws of the city, county, state and United States.

They should be required by law to enforce immigration law. Any state that does not require all of its employees and the employees of subordinate jurisdictions to enforce U.S. immigration law should not be allowed to participate in federal largess. To enforce immigration law, all they have to do is report to I.N.S. anyone that they come across whom they suspect of being an alien — it is I.N.S.’s job to establish the status of that person.

This program would make it virtually impossible for an illegal alien to work in the United States. Most will immediately leave.

Punish invaders!

Make it a felony to be in the United States illegally punishable by a mandatory $10 thousand fine and a year in prison. Anyone convicted of a misdemeanor or felony should be forever barred from entry into the United States for any reason. This will stop illegal immigration by discouraging the illegal aliens from coming to or staying in the U.S.

Have a huge public information blitz explaining:

1. In 30 days we will begin a huge round-up of invaders and those who employ them. Invaders are likely to be caught. They definitely will not be able to find employment.

2. People caught in the country illegally will be required to serve a year in a work camp, fined $10,000 and then deported.

3. When we have control of our borders and our immigration policy we will institute a guest worker program. People caught in the country illegally will be convicted felons and therefore not eligible to visit to the United States under any circumstances.

All intelligent invaders will immediately make arrangements to go home. They will not need assistance with this. The got here on their own. They can get back on their own. If they are in Maine or even Alaska, they have 30 days to get back to Mexico — they can walk, if necessary. Or, namby-pampy bleeding heart liberals can buy them a bus ticket.

Those who are caught by the I.N.S. or deputies in raids will go to a work camp where they may be employed by the bureau of prisons to work in the industries in which they have been employed to help alleviate the shortage of workers in that industry. The wages charged the employer by the Bureau of Prisons will be significantly higher than those required to hire a legal worker. Those who cannot be employed in the industry they were working in can be employed as farm workers — again at wages considerably higher than those required to attract legal workers. Once they have served their year, paid their fine and expenses they will be deported and forever barred from entry into the United States.

The money that the Bureau of Prisons collects as wages for these workers will be used first to defray the cost of imprisoning them and then to pay their fine. The cost of imprisoning them will be as modest as possible. Most will be held in extremely low security facilities — a collection of tents surrounded by barbed wire. The food provided will be modest but wholesome — a lot of beans,rice and vegetables. Any who are found outside their assigned facility will be reassigned to progressively unpleasant accommodations and jobs.

This will remove most invaders from our country.

At this point there is only one economic draw for illegal aliens — crime. Those who came here to pursue a life of crime are still here. We make any deported invader who commits a crime in the United States subject to mandatory execution. Most criminals are too stupid to foresee future outcomes. They will probably have to work off their fines as members of a chain gang. As they are arrested, tried, convicted and do their time, including the extra year and fine for their illegal status, they are deported. If they are not convicted of the crime for which they were originally arrested, they serve their year, pay their fine and are deported. If they are not tried for the crime for which they were originally arrested, they serve their year, pay their fine and are deported. Gradually we will get rid of them.

If any deported invader ever commits a crime, in the United States, we execute him.

Guest Workers

If we truly cannot find people to fill unskilled jobs that liberals and RINOs say, “Americans will not do,” the I.N.S. has procedures in place to bring in temporary workers. Follow those procedures. They should be modified, where necessary, to ensure that they do not lead to permanent residence or citizenship. If a person wants to immigrate to the United States he should follow established immigration procedures and wait his turn. While he is waiting he may be able to participate in a guest worker program. Under no circumstances should a guest worker program be implemented until this proposal has been successfully implemented.

First, we need to ensure that Americans will not do the job; not that Americans will not do the job at a price the employer wants to pay. Before an employer can apply for guest workers, he must pay for help wanted ads processed through the Department of Labor. These jobs should pay the prevailing wage for similar work. For example, if carpenters get $100 per hour in an area, the employer should have to advertise the job at $100 per hour.

If we cannot find sufficient workers, the employer can bring one member of a married couple into the country to fill the job on an 11 month contract. He must pay the agreed upon wage. All workers must be married and remain married for the duration of their contract. They are coming here to work not look for a mate and settle down. Under no circumstances will both spouses be allowed to participate in the guest worker program at the same time. No dependants may be brought. Any female worker who gets pregnant will be returned to her home country by her employer until her baby is born. There will be no “anchor babies.” In fact, the whole concept of “anchor baby” should be done away with.

At the end of the contract, the worker must return to his home country to reapply. During that month, the employer must again advertise through the D.O.L. for an American worker.

Traditionally, illegal aliens have worked in agriculture. A farmer who needs a full-time worker, can follow the procedure above and hire a worker for 11 months at a time.

The problem with farm work is that it is seasonal and of short duration. In the spring, farmers want someone to plant their crops. In the fall, they want someone to harvest their crops.

Most crops are planted and harvested by contractors who, of course, hire illegal aliens. These contractors would have to get contracts to harvest crops arranged from south to north. Crops mature from south to north so the contractor will have to plan his itinerary and write his contracts. He can determine how many workers he will need for how many months and advertise the jobs at a wage determined by the D.O.L. to be appropriate to hire American workers. The homeless and unemployed should be encouraged to take these jobs. The shortfall can be filled from outside the country on 11 month contracts.

Of course, the contactor will have to provide, transportation from site to site, housing at the site and food. This shall not be deducted from the worker’s wage. A contractor would have a fleet of trucks, camp trailers, tents and buses. He would transport his workforce in buses. They would set up a campsite on the property where the harvest is to be conducted. His workers would harvest the crops while eating and sleeping in the camp. When the harvest is gathered, the contractor gets paid and moves to the next site. D.O.L. will have to supervise this program closely to ensure that the workers are not abused.

In addition to a reasonable wage, employers will have to pay for the transportation of the worker from and back to his home country every year. He will be without that worker for one month a year. It will be much cheaper to hire an American worker. He will increase the wage and improve working conditions. We will probably find out that there are not many jobs “Americans will not do” — if you pay them fairly.

Make it happen!

The most difficult aspect of this plan is making it happen. There is only one force on Earth that can make this happen — We the People! So forward this message to all of your acquaintances and call them in a couple of days to encourage them to call their Congress Person and Senators to make it happen.

The overwhelming majority of Americans — liberals, moderates and conservatives; Democrats, independents and Republicans — want this stopped.

The way to make this happen is to first remind the representatives, senators and president that they work for us. Then we fire the ones who don’t take the reminder seriously.
