Indigestible Blocs

I believe that this nation is the last hope of Western civilization and if this oasis of the world shall be overrun, perverted, contaminated or destroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished.

I take no issue with those who would praise the contributions which have been made to our society by people of many races, of varied creeds and colors. America is indeed a joining together of many streams which go to form a mighty river which we call the American way. However, we have in the United States today hard-core, indigestible blocs which have not become integrated into the American way of life, but which, on the contrary are its deadly enemies.

Today, as never before, untold millions are storming our gates for admission and those gates are cracking under the strain. The solution of the problems of Europe and Asia and Latin America will not come through a transplanting of those problems en masse to the United States.

I do not intend to become prophetic, but if the enemies of this legislation succeed in riddling it to pieces, or in amending it beyond recognition, they will have contributed more to promote this nation’s downfall than any other group since we achieved our independence as a nation.

I made one addition to the above, adding Latin America to the list of regions from whence immigrants were arriving. For at the time of this speech, more than 60 years ago, Latin American immigrants were not much of a problem.

Ideological selection

The speaker above was Senator Pat McCarran, in 1953. He was the Democrat for whom Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport was named. His concern, and the motivation behind the McCarran-Walter Act legislation he mentions above, was the leftist ideology of some of these new arrivals, and their recruitment by US-based but Soviet-influenced communist front groups.

Now, sixty-plus years later, the issue is still ideological — but it is now our own president, whose invitations have resulted in “untold millions … storming our gates” because he hopes that they will bolster his political party. More than half of US citizens of Latino ancestry opposed this move, but President Obama was not acting for them. He is choosing to bring these millions into the country, and into legal status, despite the dangers from terrorism and disease — because it furthers his ideology.

The cost is substantial; Obama promises legal work status for five million currently illegal aliens. In his six years in office, his poor economic recovery has created only about five million full-time jobs. But the illegals will be able to legally bring in millions more, and there are 0ther millions already here.

Opposed in Australia, but not in the US

Nor are Republican leaders in the House and Senate offering any serious opposition. And those who do are being attacked from within their own party.

Obama is just as feckless overseas, as his speech last week in Australia demonstrated. As one observer noted:

The United States embassy in Canberra advised President Barack Obama not to make the provocative, anti-Abbott speech on climate change which he made at the University of Queensland in Brisbane.

That the President acted against the advice of his own embassy reveals a deeply divided and in part dysfunctional Obama administration, unable to reconcile its foreign policy objectives and its domestic imperatives.

The speech was not only damaging for Tony Abbott, as it will be used by all his opponents on climate change up until the next election, it was a disaster for US foreign policy, because the gratuitous climate change remarks completely overshadowed all the regional and security content which Obama’s foreign policy team wanted to be the main point of his major address on his Asian tour.

Obama’s self-indulgent folly was in striking contrast to the masterful performances of China’s President Xi Jinping and India’s new Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Xi and Modi have both achieved almost everything they wanted from Asia’s season of summits. Obama has achieved almost nothing.

In one respect, this writer is wrong: Lame Duck Obama is not powerless; he has launched increasing power grabs to institute his ideology and force it upon America, Constitutional or not. Would that someone in the legislative branch could stand up to this usurpation.
