The slow death of white America:
How will the great melting pot
adapt to the millions of black
and Hispanic voters who
swept Obama back to power

Daily Mail [UK], by Tom Leonard

For Republicans struggling to understand their defeat at the polls, the most chilling statistic in this week’s presidential election was this: Mitt Romney won the biggest share of the white vote that any Republican White House contender ever has--and he still lost. In an election battle that was defined as much as anything by race, Mitt Romney won the support of 59 percent of whites, but just 27 percent of Latinos, 26 percent of Asian-Americans and 6 percent of African-Americans. Thirty years ago, being unpopular with ethnic minorities would hardly have stopped a white establishment candidate like Romney from trouncing

Whites have a built in demographic advantage - they have a willingness to move away from large cities. The ´flyover country´ one can afford to have three kids easy, and the infrastructure is well suited to child raising.

Non whites tend to cling to their crowded cities and cramped living quarters and congested transit where the optimal number of children is somewhere between zero and one.

We will not adapt.

We will not depart from the precepts of freedom outlined by our founders in our Constitution.

Others follow tyranny. We follow liberty.

We will not accept progressivism - in any form.

We are free citizens and will not surrender our freedom, soverignty or self determination - ever.

We were 2.5 million in 1776 when we kicked England´s butt. We are 47 million today. Think we still have a chance???

I don´t think it will endure forever. Eventually Latinos, blacks, and white liberals will get tired of bumping heads within the Democrat party. I think Latinos will eventually split between the 2 parties like Italians have done.

To start with, I´m not hiring any for home repair or gardening. They chose to vote racially and illegally. I´m not going to hire anybody who may not be a citizen. That is my vote. Most work in the underground economy on a cash basis. I don´t and won´t.

That isn´t racial, that is common sense and I won´t be flagged for breaking the law.

FTA: "Liberal demographic experts such as Bill Frey says: What’s more, he says, while it always takes about three generations for immigrants to start moving up through society, surveys show Hispanic immigrants really do want to become ‘mainstream Americans’. They ‘just’ need government help — education, housing, social services, English lessons — to give them a leg-up."

I live in Texas, they don´t assimilate in 3 generations. They continue on the same path as their forefathers. We have enough data now to understand their path to assimilation. And it´s pretty non-existent.

obama and the democrats will push amnesty thru next. 100 million Mexicans will come across the border.

The GOP will help. We barely and I mean barely avoided it the last time when George Bush and the GOP tried to destroy the country.

The people are against amnesty and I remember the huge amount of negative complaints. It help lead to obama getting elected instead of a republican. Another mistake was picking McCain.

#10 - care to share where? I have been looking at New Zealand and have an application letter almost complete. I was in Wash DC the other day and was speaking with a seal (who incidentally was turned down by the State Dept as "too tough" for the job requirement). Apparently a lot of seals have moved to Costa Rica.

Article states 59% share of white vote is highest ever received by Republican candidate for President?

Don´t think that is even correct. Reagan in 1984 got 66% of the white vote, and that´s not the only example.

#7, I disagree with you. I don´t know your section of Texas, but my experience is that the Hispanics do assimilate after a couple of generations. They´re in the Boy Scouts, the church pews, the school faculties, the factories, the neighborhoods, the Lions Club, the Band Boosters. They retain their Hispanicness (is that a word?), but so do we Caucasians remain Caucasian.

The UK, however, has a distorted image of what life is like in most of the United States. They mostly know from television and movies.

If we can believe the exit polling, Hispanics voted against us not because of our opinion of the Dream Act, not because we want secure borders, but because we make them feel different, "other", they feel patronized and diminished. We can do something about that, and we must.

it won´t be a slow death from here on. It was slow when it began fifty or more years ago.

And the blacks, hispanics, and immigrants will be delighted to speed it along once they fully grasp their overwhelming demographic control.

We´ll just end up further polarized, and perhaps even balkanized. The whites, with a few asians, latinos and blacks thrown in, will have all the education, understand technology, build things, and make most of the money. Does not matter if they are proportionally smaller. The others will stay poor and work in menial tasks.

Most Whites, I think, don´t spend much, if any time thinking what it is to be White. It does not come naturally. Maybe because as a major majority, it just doesn´t occur. Other races have had their race constantly brought up to them, and mostly by manipulative Libs with ulterior motives. (Overthrow the White guys!) I wonder, with all the special priveledged protections laid out before minorities (which ironicly keep them quite limited) what will happen when they become a major majority. It´s been drummed into their collective thinking that Whites have been the source of all their ills. Look at the vindictive ´get even´ actions of Obama. ´Nuther generation - Look out Louie!

If parasites are allowed to feed on the host without intervention both will eventually die.

Obama´s redistribution philosophy will not work ever. It´s only a matter of time before a self-inflicted denouement happens.

Watch how the young people in Spain and Greece react to near 50% unemployment and you´ll know how to prepare your defense of life and property.

For those who do not know how this could happen, I refer you to the 1965 Immigration Act promoted by Sen. Teddy Kennedy, one of the most immoral men ever elected to public office. It opened the floodgates of low-skilled, poorly educated immigrants many of whom became dependent on government assistance.

I knew as a young man that this act was going to hurt us long term someday.

That day arrived November 6, 2012.

I think it would be FAIR is people from European countries were able to just walk into this country and settle. Just because we share a border with Mexico does NOT mean that they are the only foreigners allowed to tap our resources.
I say to everyone, come on in, let´s have whites from Europe come on Visas and overstay. Are Mexicans more equal than others in this human rights argument?
I have friends who waited for 13 years in the Ukraine to be allowed to come here legally. They speak flawless English, would never think of applying for food stamps, and now own their own home and work hard. They vote Republican. Where is that FAIRNESS Obama is always harping about?

This country died on 11-6-2012.

The corpse is just starting to rot, but it won´t take long until it collapses under the weight of itself.

This was the last presedential election we will ever have with two viable parties. Very soon, NØbama will be able to flip the Supreme Court to an activist lie-beral court. As soon as he does that, he will declare a blanket amnesty and citizen ship for the 20,000,000+ illegal alliens in this country. The lie-beral activist Supreme Court will not even wait for a court case, but will break precedence and just declare what NØbama did was Constitutional. They will immediately all register as Demon-RAT voters, and there will not be a single red state left in this union.

In 2014, the Demon-RATS will win a super-majority in the Senate, and a strong majority in the House. They will impose their socialist agenda on this country, with nobody and no way to stop them. Game over forever.

Next they will come for our weapons. We can talk big about how they will have to take them from us, but they will. No matter how well armed you are, when 50 armed brown shirts (with the best body armor and weaponry that our tax dollars can by) show up and you don´t immediately hand them ever weapon and bit of ammo that you own, there will be a hug red splat on the wall where you used to exist. And they will do the same to your wife and kids for good measure to get the message to your neighbors. The SS in WW-II will look like pussycats compared to these new brown shirt members of NØbama´s ´´Illegal Gun Collection Agency´´.

At the risk of inviting much vitriol, I pose a dumb question.

What is so horrid or sordid or unsavory about old white men?

I remember my father in his later years as a kind man who raised three successful children, after serving his country in uniform in WWII, and as a chemical engineer contributed significantly to the technology of his industry.

What is it about him that Democrats find so offensive? And what is it about a Heinz 57 country that stands as more noble and fair than my father and his generation?

I ask the question because now I’m an old white man, with eight grown, successful children and four decades of medical practice behind me (and still going, Obamacare willing) and find myself vilified by the left for what I am.

I don’t get it.

Blacks and Hispanics (especially blacks) have already shown how most will treat whites when whites are the minority or when whites no longer wield the authority and economic power.

Think of black DMV clerks making decisions about the healthcare you and your family will receive.

Think of having to appear in front of a black judge with Eric Holder´s attitude.

Can we just stop and realize that we cannot lump all Hispanics into one big blob? There are legal citizens and there are illegals. Some Hispanics have ancestors who were here before many of us white folks. Hispanics are historically extremely patriotic and have served in our military for generations. Most of them are good, honest, hard-working people, just as are the solid citizens of any other group. Hispanic citizens are not our enemies. They are our friends and neighbors and they want this nation to prosper and succeed as much as we do. We´ll never win another election if we insist only white folks are the good guys.

Ditto, #25. I worked and paid taxes (a lot) for 55 years. Put four kids through college. Managed to save enough to retire a year ago. I give to church and charity. I don´t break the law. I don´t get government aid (I don´t count Medicare and SS as government aid because I paid thousands for the benefit). I volunteer and am on the board of several local charities. I never cheated on my wife...never.

I am certainly no saint but I would like to know just what the hell is so horrible about old white guys like me.

Why have we (and are we still) let the leftists create massive divisiveness between us based on race???? This was never an issue until the Democrats and leftists started making it this way. The parties and ideologies were not split along the lines of ethnicity or skin color until the left began manipulating the people, bombarding us with decades of propaganda, and playing identity politics. Our biggest mistake, which is still happening, is that we never fought back against what the Dems were doing and we never reached out to the various communities (which need it because the left´s policies created the nightmares). Yes, the left reaches out and throws a few crumbs (to make themselves look good) but purposely doesn´t help them solve their real problems. We can fix this and break the race issue--but we have to act and we have to stop letting lies go unchecked.

Their culteral values resulted in what we see throughout Africa & Mexico now. I realized most African were brought here against their will but they did have opportunity in this century to assimilate but they choose to maintain the values of tribalism which resulted in the continent of Africa today. Students in their community are berated if they try to achieve, being called uncle Tom or whitey. Most Mexicans saw it was a deadend for them to remain there. They saw the goodies here and thought they would come to appropriate them and our liberal whites thought it best to co-opt them for votes, thus the free rides. I´m not open to joining them but would fight to the death if it came to that to preserve this nation.

#25 and #30, permit to speculate that "old white men" are not liked BECAUSE they adhere to the old time values, and they are knowledgeable about our country´s history and founding. Not to mention that "old white men" like you two gentlemen, and my dear father who is long gone from this earth, actually fought and risked your lives for this country and its freedoms. You are the living embodiment of great Americans. You have proven that this country is great, and it works, and that we all must live by the rules of individual responsibility. That doesn´t jibe well with the America the haters talk about.

You, and all the other men like you, are a threat to the people who are trying (and succeeding) to fundamentally transform the United States of America.

Old White Men are the sweetest demographic you will ever meet.

But....just like old white women, they are the easiest to molest in airport security or any other place where the government needs to send the message.

The message is: If you want to stop Islamic Terrorists we will make you pay. We will assault the most vulnerable sector of your society until you give up.

It´s called ´terrorism´.

At least we´re not overrun with Muslims, like England is. Women in full, face-covering chadors (sp?) are a common sight on the streets of London. And the issue isn´t really white people. Bill Ayers is white. It´s conservatives vs. liberals. Birth control and abortion in particular have slowed the population among typical liberal groups--blacks, especially. In Chicago, blacks are no longer the largest ethnic group in the elementary schools. It´s the Hispanics. Hispanics, however, are not yet co opted by the Democrat party. They voted for Bush in large numbers. I actually hope we get immigration reform to take that issue off the table for the next election. And then we need serious outreach to the Hispanic community. We have the people to do it: Rubio, George P. Bush, Susannah Martinez, Alberto Gonzalez, Ted Cruz, to name a few.

Ukraine crisis:
British forces to join Nato wargames
Telegraph [UK], by Matthew Holehouse, Damien McElroy    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/30/2014 7:42:21 PM     Post Reply
British troops will take part in wargames in the Baltics in order to reassure Ukraine in the face of a potential Russian invasion, the Defence Secretary said today. Philip Hammond said Britain would stand by its Nato allies as he warned Russia may attempt to seize more territory. He said claims from senior generals that defence cuts had left the Armed Forces “hollowed out” are “nonsense”, and insisted withdrawing armoured regiments from Germany to bases in Britain would make them more effective. Lord Dannatt, the former head of the Armed Forces, last week suggested 3,000 troops should remain in Germany

If all the recent scare stories about sugar in food drove you to drink, it turns out that it wasn’t necessarily the best place to go. Research conducted for The Sunday Telegraph reveals that a single pint of cider contains as much sugar as the World Health Organisation recommends should be an individual’s daily limit. Scrumpy, it seems, is best avoided if you are on a diet. Worryingly high quantities of the sweet stuff were also found in Baileys Irish Cream and sherry, although, admittedly, those are drinks that tend to be limited to a single glass: rarely does anyone

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

The European Union (EU)--obsessed with climate change, cutting carbon emissions and saving polar bears--may have been hoist by its own foreign policy petard. Vladimir Putin’s threat to cut off natural gas supplies which supply 30 percent of the EU’s needs means the EU may be forced to become energy self sufficient. Wind farms do not have the capacity of keeping the central heating thermostat at a sensible level, leaving Putin’s new Cold War seeming literal as well as metaphorical. [Snip] The first energy casualty is the South Stream project, a gas pipe line under construction connecting Russian gas to the

Scores of pets have been infected with TB which can be passed to humans, it emerged last night. Ministers were accused of mishandling the crisis as the Government struggles to contain the spread of the disease to humans. [Snip] “They may have picked up the disease from the cattle directly, or perhaps from other cats, rodents or badgers, though there is no evidence to back that up, but unless you want to start eradicating every small mammal in the country, including cats, then you need to use common sense and deal with the disease at its source, in cattle.

A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck near Los Angeles late on Friday, rattling a wide swath of Southern California, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There were no immediate reports of injury from the quake, centered outside suburban La Habra, about 20 miles from downtown Los Angeles, however, families at Disneyland were left stuck on rides as hundreds of stores and homes were ruined by damage. The area was initially hit by a 3.6 earthquake earlier in the evening before the larger blast was felt. The surrounding area was then hit by at least 40 aftershocks following the powerful quake that hit shortly after 9pm.

Fears of NHS Cover-Up as Hospitals
Accused of ´Fiddling´ Death Figures

Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/29/2014 2:38:52 AM     Post Reply
NHS hospitals have been "fiddling" their death rate figures by falsely claiming that patients were terminally ill, according to new research. The new figures, which show that the number of "terminal" illnesses have risen five times since 2006, have caused concerns that hospitals could be covering up for poor care. Every hospital on the NHS has to collect data on how its death rates compare to what would be expected, but if a case is described as "palliative"--i.e. the patient had a terminal illness and was expected to die anyway--it doesn’t normally count towards death rate. The huge increase

More than a dozen foreign nationals, including several children, had to be evacuated from a guesthouse used by a U.S.-based aid group in Kabul, after armed Taliban insurgents stormed the building and took at least four people hostage. The hostages, which were said to have included three U.S. citizens, were trapped inside for at least an hour before Afghan security officials ended the siege in the upmarket residential area of the capital. At least one Afghan child and five Taliban insurgents died during the operation, a military official said after the battle was over, adding that all hostages are now safe.

Relations between Washington and its long-standing ally Saudi Arabia have sharply declined in recent months over US policy in the Middle East--now even a visit to Riyadh by President Obama might do little to narrow the differences, reports the BBC´s Kim Ghattas in Washington. US officials briefing reporters ahead of the trip have said little of substance about what they expect, other than to say it is very important. Ben Rhodes, the president´s deputy national security adviser, did acknowledge that there were disagreements between the two countries. One of them has already put a small damper on the trip. On

Nigel Farage has accused the European Union of having "blood on its hands" over the Ukraine. Does that sound over the top? [Snip] Well, that was the EU´s plan and it has been working on it for some time. The Ukraine was to form the jewel in the crown of the EU´s Eastern Partnership programme, which would see Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus brought closer to the bosom of the EU. This was what David Cameron was endorsing last year when, at the time of Croatia´s accession to the EU, he described his dream of seeing a European

King Abdullah is paramount leader of the House of Saud and master of a fifth of the world’s oil reserves, but he does a good impression of being a simple man. When he was Crown Prince, his tent was open to just about any male Saudi, so long as they were not too flamboyantly deferential. An obsequious petitioner would receive a prod from Abdullah’s bamboo camel cane. “You’re a man,” he would mutter. “What are you doing grovelling on the floor?” The Saudi king is unlikely to have this problem today when he receives President Barack Obama in Riyadh. Yes,

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much
