Short And Sweet

After two weeks of too many words, today just two short topics.

Immigration and Nullification
I normally come down on the side of states rights - meaning things not reserved to federal control by the Constitution or by law are the province of the states to control or not as they see fit. Immigration is under Federal control.  For states to deny it is nullification.

The Feds are gearing up for a major dragnet in Northern California, during which they will seek to arrest more than 1,500 illegals. The Oakland City Council has passed a resolution prohibiting police from providing so much as traffic control for immigration-enforcement actions.

California's AG issued a warning to California employers Thursday that businesses face legal repercussions, including fines up to $10,000 if they assist federal immigration authorities

The Oakland Police Chief - One Glance And I Know She Leans Left

We have been here before. The firebrand South Carolinians led southern states in succeeding from the Union in an attempt to protect an economy built on slavery. Now we have sanctuary cities that protect illegals, but put citizens at risk. No matter how sad their individual stories are they are here illegally. End of discussion.

Now we have the spectacle of an illegal saying in his trial for killing a cop "I will break out soon and I will kill more". This follows the mockery of justice for the illegal who killed Kate Steinle who had seven felony convictions and been deported from the U.S. five times.

From the National Review
The Left loathes Trump not just for what he has done. (It is too consumed with fury to calibrate the particulars of the Trump agenda.) Rather, it despises him mostly for what he superficially represents. 

Since 1989, we’ve had lots of rhetoric but otherwise no serious effort to prune back the autonomous bureaucracy that grew ever larger. Few Republicans in the executive branch sought to reduce government employment, deregulate, sanction radical expansion of fossil-fuel production, recalibrate the tax code, rein in the EPA, reduce illegal immigration. To do all that would require a president to be largely hated by the Left, demonized by the media, and caricatured in popular culture — and few were willing to endure the commensurate ostracism.


  1. Are you certain that Police chief is a woman? Considered it’s California, it might be one of many other genders.
    I just wish that it someday comes back to bite them all in the ass, preferably their left cheek.

  2. I could write a book about the idiots running California but will simply say...I agree with you. My oldest son, DIL and granddaughters are still living in California for about another year so may the good Lord help those morons if any of my family hurt by one of those illegals. It would be a re-enactment of the movie 'Next of Kin'.

    1. The scenery in California is the best of any state. The Dems have brought it to bankruptcy, made it a nanny state and sanctuary for illegals. Driving through parts of wine country it looks like Mexico, trash covers the roads and most buildings are devoted to some form of welfare.

  3. At the very least Trump has been able to divide not only a country, but friends, and most of all families. If this country is defined by which political party we belong to, what have we become? Remember the old saying pointing a finger at someone means three are pointing back at you. Take from this Veteran returning home and told it best to remove the uniform, and no one in this country no matter the party they belong to stood up for those who served. My voice speaks louder than those who did not serve, Trump being one who did not serve. I earned my rights, they were not giving to me.

  4. Dear Anonymous, I disagree that Trump divided the country. I could argue the current division started in the 60's and was split wide open by BHO.

    I may understand what you are saying about military service, having served two tours in Vietnam. I don't find fault in Trump for not having served. It appears he is concerned about the military and is supporting them in ways that no president has done in decades. So much damage was done to the military by BHO.

  5. Dear anonymous, Trump divided no one , the division was already there, put there by his predecessor. Liberals have used Trump as an excuse. This hatred that is pouring out now is that if the left not getting its way anymore.
    Also, stop with the veteran excuse bullshit too.
    Several former presidents didn’t serve a day in the military and I heard no one bitch about them. I served and I don’t have any problems with those that didn’t. All our voices are equal , no one has any priority.

  6. So much for a “short and sweet” post; you touched on two intense topics, Bogey.

    Bogey & Hands63 & Anonymous - I will just comment on my/this particular issue with Trump referenced above - It is not that he didn’t serve; I do not have an issue with that in of itself.

    I have had the issue with his insult about McCain not being a war hero. For hells sake, McCain spent roughly five years in the “Hanoi Hilton,” where he was repeatedly tortured. He spent two of those years in solitary confinement. He was a POW. I don’t understand how people easily excuse Trump’s insults to McCain especially since Trump is a draft-dodger. If these insults came from another, another draft-dodger, imagine the uproar.

    I still remember the day I heard those comments Trump made and was sickened how easily so many especially fellow vets were so easy to excuse it. I made a choice to serve, many others before me did not have a choice, and plenty of others simply chose not to; but to insult a POW a combat veteran when we as a collective country claim to respect (us) veterans - that is an inexcusable insult. It is just BS in my opinion.

    1. I had forgotten Trump's sordid remarks about McCain. Thanks for bringing it up.
