Here are a few videos that I shall begin my thesis with……
Here is some live feed from Maywood, CA – a sanctuary city that did not respect the United States on August 8, 2006.
Finally, the Dream Act has been passed by Jerry Brown this month…….. it will take effect on January 1, 2012.
Thisissue involves the Mexican’s loyalties to Mexico, their bringing crime up to the United States, their stealing of taxpayer money for welfare, their affect on healthcare across the country, their altering of our representation for the worst…… go back to your own country!
I will continue to discuss the issues behind this throughout the week…
China is a growing power, and they are rising in the face of the US recession. They are expanding militarily through the investment in aircraft carriers, cyberwarfare, and space infrastructure. Just this month they launched their first aircraft carrier – with plans on building their own carriers and navy. Many believe that China is looking back at neighboring Japan and Thailand, each of whom also have their own aircraft carriers. China has advanced cybernetics capabilities, as shown in multiple international attacks. The frequency of these attacks will undoubtedly increase with China’s expansion.
Satellites and space communication infrastructure is becoming a major issue with China. They have since began developing their own satellites, and are working on devices that can destroy them. Communications between satellites and the ground will enable for China’s greater efficiency, and for more information on troop logistics. They are also used to network between new air units that are creating the beginnings of a denied airspace over China….
Overall, China is disregarding the United States and going onto their own concerns. The United States is slowing imports, as we have a long ways to go on this recession. China is also beginning to see how much leverage they have with the foreign debt we owe to them. Finally, the leadership of Obama and the diplomacy of self-proclaimed loom Biden does not mean anything to Americans – why should it to China?

Yesterday, I talked of attacks on Israel on the Gaza strip. Here is a terrifying video from the University of San Diego, showing how indoctrination is infiltrating our education system and culture.
The streets of southern Israel are empty as over 1 million Jewish residents hide in bomb shelters. The Gaza strip is being taken over by the new Egyptian regime, and Israel is fighting to protect itself. Just to remind those who do not remember Israel’s borders or proximity to its enemies, here is a video.
Let us hope that Israel is successful in protecting themselves….
George Washington’s Farewell Address was made on September 17, 1796. In it he warned the country of how ideals and beliefs would lead the nation to its end. One of the core themes in his speech was foreign entanglement, and foreign influence upon our own domestic affairs and government. Quoting from
“Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.
The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop. Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have none; or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.”
This principle rests upon the idea that the world is not our friend, and that as Americans we need to stay vigilant against such warrants. To stay outside of the influences of foreign nations, and to maintain our own status quo, we would remain outside of political interference and interaction. Trade, economic openness and money would flow, and our interaction with other political entities would be handled through diplomacy. We would remain an introspective country, and we would first look towards domestic issues – as opposed to international solutions.
At present, internationalism stemming from Spanish-American Jingoism and the World Wars has led to political pundits and presidents working with foreign leaders to solve issues that do not involve the United States. This includes our bending to Mexico’s immigration, our entire importation system from Chinese goods and Middle Eastern oil, and international military practices that are sparking tension. Foreign Entanglement principles are non-existent. Our debts are held in foreign hands, pressures force United States leaders to do the will of foreign countries, and religious zeal has forced military maneuvers to be questioned repeatedly.
If we were to adapt the principle of foreign entanglement today, here are for following that might result:
~ American oil and natural gas industries would flourish, and our importation would lower to around 5-15%, as opposed to current figures
~ We would actually product objects of use – made in America!!!, and export more than the cardboard boxes sent to us from China
~ Any imports will be tariffed, and we will protect American industry.
~ Our (hopefully) Conservative leaders would aim towards shrinking the government, cutting down on international programs that are no longer needed
~ Energy costs would lower, and there would be less inflation as transportation costs lower as well
The results of our fixing domestic problems, as opposed to international issues, would be exponential in their success. Internationalism is soon to lead to war, as proven by efforts in Libya, tension from military practices in the Black Sea and near North Korea, and Chinese cyber-attacks our security infrastructure. Where did Foreign Entanglement go, and how do we transition into it?!
Our tactful leaders have again failed to act well among company….. Obama’s traveling to pubs is complete lunacy when looking at the worst tornado season in decades. Our interruption of the English national anthem, and Michelle Obama ignoring customs and, equivalently, raping the queen is not acceptable. And our being imbeciles will not end! Let us pray that common sense shall come to dictate the government’s limits and actions…
My parents’ families came to America legally; my mother’s side coming in the beginning and colonizing the Western frontier, my father’s side coming through Ellis Island during Russia’s purge of the Jews. They are American citizens, and are recognized as such. The newest issue is with the Mexicans coming across the borders, bringing drugs, crime, and breeding-age people. They are illegal, come here due to the benefits they recieve, and do not contribute to the economy. These illegals are, in fact, being supported by the government due to their large numbers. We could just as easily have illegal Indian people; yet they are educated, and value hard work and the rewards that it reaps. They would contribute to our economy. So why be so benevolent upon the Mexican population and the lack of benefits they bring?
Currently Arizona is having a problem with illegal immigrants, drug traffiking and crime. To solve this, they have created a law that has illegals that are involved with the police ‘investigated’ to see if they are legal. In a recent internet poll, 95.9% of all people to be involved with it AGREE with Arizona’s law. The government doesn’t agree, and is SUING the state for enforcing a law already in place on a federal level. They have also begun prosecuting Arizona and slandering it’s name, placing warnings about how DANGEROUS and VIOLENT it is. Maybe if the federal government stayed away from the state, it wouldn’t be as dangerous……
Immigrants have contributed to our society in the past, as we have become a melting pot of different cultures. They continue to do so, and can also help as globalization spreads even more. Yet we need to maintain our security and border control to protect our economy from those not willing to help us.
