 Assimilation Needed Now | September 26, 2008 | Digg This


"A stunning 43 percent of California residents speak a language other than English at home, according to census figures released on Tuesday.

"And 20 percent of Californians feel they don’t speak English ‘very well.’

"By contrast, fewer than 20 percent of Americans overall speak another language at home, and fewer than 9 percent say they don’t speak English ‘very well.’

"The San Francisco Bay area has many immigrants from Asian nations, as well as the Latin American immigrants who predominate in Southern California, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

"The state has the largest proportion of immigrant residents among the 50 states, at 27 percent of the population, according to the census figures.

" ‘It’s very disturbing when one in five people is not communicating in the common language,’ Victor Davis Hanson, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute and author of the book ‘Mexifornia: A State of Becoming,’ told the Chronicle.

" ‘Culturally, it creates a sort of tribalism … We have shared values and a shared Constitution; we also have to have a shared culture and language.

" ‘It’s time to go back to the melting pot, control the borders, and let assimilation, integration and intermarriage work.’" Source: Newsmax, Jim Meyers, September 23, 2008.

 West Point Songs Go PC | September 25, 2008 | Digg This


"The U.S. Military Academy has incorporated gender-neutral lyrics into West Point’s Alma Mater and The Corps, replacing lines such as ‘The men of the Corps’ with ‘The ranks of the Corps.’ Superintendent Lt. Gen. Franklin ‘Buster’ Hagenbeck said the changes came after officials attended funerals for female graduates killed in combat and heard the line ‘Guide us, thy sons’ being sung. It now reads, ‘Guide us, thine own.’ The songs were written about a century ago; the first female cadets joined the Long Gray Line in 1976." Source: USA Today, Nationline, 6/5/08, p. 3A

I have long argued that the United States should withdraw from NATO for many reasons, not least of them the fact that our treaty obligations under NATO require that we go to war in defense of any NATO member government which comes under attack.

We can be thankful that the Republic of Georgia has not yet been admitted to NATO membership. Had it been admitted, in the present context the United States would be obliged to go to war with Russia in defense of Georgia.

 Obama & NAU | September 15, 2008 | Digg This


Here’s what Barack Obama has had to say about the North American Union:

"I can assure you that while the U.S. government continues to talk with other countries on trade, security and other issues, there are no plans to cede American sovereignty to other countries and form a North American continental government. The administration has a ‘Security and Prosperity Partnership’ ( with Mexico and Canada to improve security and commercial relations on the continent. I agree that the merits of this partnership should be examined further." Source: Letter from Barack Obama in response to question posed by Bob Corbett, 9/13/08

DiLorenzo, Evans, Kincaid Speak on Constitution Day

Thomas DiLorenzo (author of The Real Lincoln), M. Stanton Evans (author of Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies), and Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival will speak at The Conservative Caucus 8th annual commemoration of Constitution Day, September 17. The 6:30 P.M. event will be held at the Key Bridge Hyatt, 1325 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington.

September 17 marks the anniversary of the day that the Constitutional Convention of 1787 adjourned.

Thomas DiLorenzo is the author of many books, including The Real Lincoln and Lincoln Unmasked. His Hamilton’s Curse: How Jefferson’s Arch Enemy Betrayed the American Revolution – and What It Means for Americans Today will be published next month.

The most recent book by Stan Evans is Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies, which demonstrates that McCarthy was correct in his warnings about Communist agents in the U.S. government.

Cliff Kincaid, Editor of the AIM Report, will receive the Andrew Jackson Champion of Liberty Award from the U.S. Taxpayers Alliance. Kincaid is the author of Global Bondage: The U.N. Plan to Rule the World and The Death of Talk Radio.

The Conservative Caucus (TCC) is a grass roots public policy action organization, formed in 1974. It was active in defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care takeover, and impeaching President Clinton.


 Harmonizing With Red China | September 4, 2008 | Digg This


"[S]ome people suggest that China is a threat that must be countered or contained. Others argue that its growth is an opportunity for the U.S. economy and that Washington should manage this rising power through engagement. I [Henry Paulson] believe that engagement is the only path to success.

"President George W. Bush chose this approach…President Bush engaged Beijing and did so based on the recognition of china’s twin priorities: territorial integrity and economic growth. …

"To be effective, however, Washington must first understand Beijing’s interests and the challenges it faces. …

"[D]ifferences with China must not be allowed to stand in the way of progress and cooperation. …

"In 2006, President Bush and Chinese President Hu Jintao launched the U.S.-China Strategic Economic Dialogue (SED) to manage both immediate tensions between the two countries and their expanding relationship over the long term. …

"President Hu has said that it is the Chinese government’s job to ensure ‘harmony,’. …

"[I] have had regular and welcome access to President Hu and Premier Wen to talk about the most important economic issues in the U.S.-Chinese relationship. In August 2007, I discussed the adverse impact of economic nationalism in both the United States and China with President Hu. …

"[E]conomic nationalism…has been a growing concern in the United States in recent years. Low-cost imports, particularly from China, sometimes have a negative image among the American public…Foreign investment into the United States, especially by sovereign wealth funds and state-owned enterprises, is also increasingly viewed with suspicion by some U.S. companies, various members of the national security community, and the American public at large. …

"These concerns are misplaced. Like many countries accumulating large foreign exchange reserves, China is simply looking for profitable places to invest them over the long term. China invests its reserves in U.S. securities, including U.S. Treasuries, but there is little Chinese direct investment in the United States…the United States would do well to encourage such investment from anywhere in the world—including China. …

"[I]t is in talks to join the Inter-American Development Bank. U.S. officials have encouraged their efforts through the SED and so facilitated China’s integration into the global economic system."

 Actions You Can Take | September 1, 2008 | Digg This

There are many actions you can take during the election season to help stop the North American Union and NAFTA Superhighway. We defeated amnesty for illegal aliens and can do the same with the NAU.

  • It is important that we force candidates to publicly reveal their views on the NAU. The presidential debates offer a valuable opportunity to put the presidential candidates on record. Please contact the moderators of each presidential debate to ask that they ask each candidate a question about the NAU. Letters and faxes will carry more weight than emails.

  • Ask your federal/state/local candidates to pledge to stop the NAU & the NAFTA superhighway. Call, write or email them at their campaign offices.

  • You can reach more people by calling talk shows and writing letters to the editor. Please post comments on blogs to visit
  • Make Youtube videos about the NAU and forward them to friends.
