Mexican legislation would confiscate U.S. assets if Trump builds wall

The hypocrisy of the government of Mexico boggles the mind.

Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society. Mexico guards its southern border with Guatemala and does not suffer illegal immigration: under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony. Mexico annually deports more illegal aliens than the U.S. does. (Source: Human Events)

But woe be it that the United States should do what Mexico does, which is what President-elect Donald Trump vows to do, with which millions of Americans agree — including Hispanics! — and voted accordingly last November 8.

Now, to add injury upon injury, there is a proposed legislation in the Mexican Senate that seeks to ban the Mexican government from funding the construction of the Trump wall along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border, as well as confiscate U.S. assets in Mexico if Trump were to have the unmitigated gall as to actually build the wall.

The UK Telegraph and Independent report that last September Mexican senator Armando Rios Piter from the leftist PRD party proposed legislation that would:

(1) Block any attempt by Trump to force Mexico to pay for a border wall by banning Mexico’s finance ministry from using public funds on any project that is “against the country’s interest”.

(2) If Trump were to abolish the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Mexico would retaliate by revoking all bilateral treaties and agreements between the US and Mexico, including the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

Note: The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed by the US and Mexico in 1848 to end a two-year war between the two countries which Mexico lost. As part of the deal, Mexico handed to the US over half a million square miles of land that encompasses today’s Texas and California, as well as large parts of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. Mexican nationalists call these lost territories Aztlan and advocate Mexico’s “reconquest” (reconquista) of those lands.

(3) If Trump were to finance border wall construction by blocking U.S. Mexicans’ remittance payments to Mexico, Mexico will retaliate by:

  • Levying an equivalent tax on the more than one million American citizens living in Mexico.
  • Confiscating American assets and properties in Mexico, which would include factories and businesses. In the language of the proposed bill: “in cases where the assets of our fellow citizens or companies are affected by a foreign government, as Donald Trump has threatened, the Mexican government should proportionally expropriate assets and properties of foreigners from that country on our territory.”

According to the Office of the United States Trade Representative, U.S. assets in the form of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Mexico — led by nonbank holding companies, manufacturing, and finance/insurance — totaled $107.8 billion in 2014.

Rios Piter told the Telegraph he was in initial conversations with other senators about the legislation. He said:

“We can’t take a partisan view of this. All parties in the senate are in agreement that Mexico needs to stand up for itself and strengthen its relationship with the United States. We want to shut Trump’s mouth, which has been spewing this hateful speech.”

Lorne Matalon reports for Fronteras, Dec. 27, 2016, that Alejandro Hope, a former senior intelligence analyst at Mexico’s civilian intelligence agency CISEN who had worked in former Mexican president Vicente Fox’s transition team, said the Trump wall will likely lead to more unrest and bloodshed in Mexico as organized crime fight for control of smuggling routes into the U.S. — “The remaining routes for illicit trafficking will become far more valuable. And that probably means more conflict on the Mexican side.”

I say bring it on, Mexico!

Pop singer Linda Ronstadt wants open border with Mexico

Ronstadt with POSLinda Ronstadt was awarded the National Medal of Arts and Humanities by the POS in July 2014.

Linda Ronstadt, 68, is of German, English and Mexican on her father’s side, and German, English and Dutch on her mother’s side.

In other words, by heritage Ronstadt is more German-English than Mexican. Whatever Mexican heritage she claims stems from her paternal great grandfather who married a Mexican woman.

In an Aug. 18, 2014 interview with Megan Finnerty of The Arizona Republic, Ronstadt vented her feelings on America’s southern border, immigration, and her chosen self-identity as a Mexican-American in Aztlán — the Aztec name for the southwestern states of California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, portions of Nevada, Utah, and Colorado, which Chicano nationalists claim were stolen by the United States and must be reconquered (Reconquista) and reclaimed for Mexico.

On the fence and border:

Ronstadt said, “There wasn’t a fence running through the Sonoran Desert when I was growing up. In fact, when I moved back to Tucson, there wasn’t even a fence running through it. While I was there, it was building; we just turned around and all of a sudden it was there, this horrible thing that destroyed economies on both sides of the line. I know my own father’s business was very dependent on the goodwill and business and trade from people in northern Mexico. We knew their families and went to their weddings and baptisms and balls and picnics, and we had a great time with them. Because my dad had a huge hardware store, and they came up to Tucson (to) do their shopping.”

On immigration reform:

There should not be a question of legal or illegal immigration. People came and immigrated to this country from the time of the Indians. No one’s illegal. They should just be able to come.

“We allow Cubans to come in and say that they’re refugees. Well, in Cuba — I’ve been there, you know — people are fed, people are housed, people are clothed. There isn’t violence in the streets. Here, people are coming from places where there’s just terrible violence. Parts of Mexico that are incredibly violent, and Honduras, which is just unspeakably violent right now.

“These children are just fleeing for their lives, their parents are just sending them out because it’s the only way that they have of living — into a terrible, dangerous journey and an uncertain future in the United States that is populated with people that seem to hate them — that’s how desperate they are.”

On her self-identity:

“You have the United States, and you have Mexico, and then you have this Mexican-American thing which is this third culture, which I like to call Aztlán.

“It’s not the same as Mexican culture; it’s not the same as American culture. It’s a distinct hybrid with its own characteristics, and it’s influencing the culture in the United States and Mexico, and that’s kind of where I’ve found myself for the last 20 years. It’s an Aztec word; it means northern. It’s where the Aztecs came from. When they asked, ‘Where did you come from? They said ‘Aztlán,’ which is up here in the north, probably the American Southwest.

“So I think of myself as a girl from the Sonoran Desert, and my culture is the culture of Aztlán.

H/t WND

The Aztecs were a brutal militaristic people who engaged in human sacrifices to their “gods.”

In the usual procedure of the sacrificial ritual, the victim was taken to the top of the temple and laid on a stone slab by four priests. A fifth priest sliced open the victim’s abdomen with a ceremonial knife made of flint, grabbed and tore out the still-beating heart, which would be placed in a bowl held by a statue of the honored god. The victim’s body was then thrown down the temple’s stairs.

It is estimated that at the re-consecration of Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlan in 1487, the Aztecs sacrificed anywhere from 4,000 to as many as 80,400 prisoners over the course of four days.

By “the culture of Aztlan,” does Linda Ronstadt also include the Aztecs’ live human sacrifices? And if not, why not?

Here are Ronstadt’s other rabid leftist views (Wikipedia):

  • At a 2006 concert in Canada, Ronstadt told the Calgary Sun George W. Bush was “an idiot” and that she was “embarrassed” he was from the United States.
  • In August 2009, in a well-publicized interview to PlanetOut Inc. Ronstadt championed gay rights and same-sex marriage and stated that “homophobia is anti-family values.”
  • On January 16, 2010, Ronstadt converged with thousands of other activists in a “National Day of Action,” protesting the treatment of illegal aliens and Arizona’s enforcement of its illegal immigrant law, especially Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s immigration efforts.
  • She has said she doesn’t like to sing to an audience that includes a Republican or “fundamentalist Christian.” (VDare.com)

Given her hatred for Republicans and “fundamentalist” Christians, I can’t imagine why anyone from those two groups would want to buy or listen to Linda Ronstadt’s music.

Arizona college student suspended for wanting classes conducted in English

AztlanMore than 3 years ago, FOTM re-published an article about the ambition of radical Chicanos (Mexican-Americans) to re-establish the mythical homeland of the Aztecs — Aztlan — in the American southwest.

Aztlan will be comprised of the states of California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, portions of Nevada, Utah, Colorado — which Chicano nationalists claim were stolen by the United States and must be reconquered (Reconquista) and reclaimed for Mexico.

From the looks of what happened to Terri Bennett, a 50-year-old Nursing student at Pima Community College (PCC) in Tucson, Arizona, Reconquista is right on schedule.

Pima Community CollegeBennett was suspended by PCC for asking that class instruction and discussion be conducted in English — the official language of the State of Arizona according to Article 28 of the state’s Constitution.

As recounted by Dave Jolly for Godfather Politics, Bennett was assigned to a small student group of which she was the only one where English was their first language. The students were supposed to work together, but all of the others spoke Spanish instead of English and Bennett had no clue what was going on. The class was asked to fill out anonymous evaluation forms and on her form, she wrote that she would prefer that there would be no Spanish spoken in the classroom.

David KutzlerShortly after filling out the evaluation, Bennett found herself in a classroom where Spanish was the predominate language, including the instructions and lessons. In March 2013, she requested a meeting with David Kutzler, the Director of the Advanced Nursing Program, to talk about her difficulties and to request that classes be conducted in English.

Not only was her request denied, Kutzler called her a “bitch and a bigot,” accused her of “discriminating against Mexican-Americans,” and then threatened to report her complaint as a violation of the college’s policies against discriminatory behavior and harassment!

The next day, Bennett was called into a meeting with other college staff. She was again accused of being discriminating against Mexican-Americans. That means if she stayed at PCC to complete her degree, she would never get a job afterwards because no faculty would recommend her. Kutzler also confronted her with anonymously-written “evaluations,” which was followed 11 days later with a formal communication from the college — a progress report stating that she had “ineffective communication skills.”

A week after, Bennett was greeted by college security upon her arrival at the campus and told that she needed to leave the campus immediately. She then received a formal letter from the college stating that, due to her “discriminatory conduct,” her “presence on College property [posed] a significant risk of disruption of education activities.”

Terri BennettTerri Bennett announcing her lawsuit

Dylan Smith reports for the Tucson Sentinel, July 15, 2013, that according to a lawsuit filed by Bennett’s attorney John Munger against Pima Community College, on April 22 Bennett was “physically confronted by six armed police officers when she arrived on campus … handed her suspension papers and ordered to leave the campus under threat of armed force.”

On April 29, Dr. Ann Parker, PCC’s vice president of Student Development, issued “findings and determinations” that for arguing with an instructor, complaining about Spanish speaking and intimidating behavior, Bennett is suspended from the college “until she receives counseling to improve her communication style and to learn to be less abrasive with students and instructors.”

PCC officials said that Bennett’s lawsuit “is entirely without merit” and that student-privacy laws mean they are “not able to comment specifically about Terri Bennett’s situation.” PCC Chancellor Lee Lambert also declined to comment on the specifics of Bennett’s claims but bleated in an email that the college is committed “to creating a positive learning environment for our students.”

La Raza: Racist Hispanic group funded by taxpayers

La Raza (in English, The Race) or the National Council of La Raza calls itself “a non-profit and non-partisan advocacy group in the United States, focused on improving opportunities for Hispanics” — Americans of Mexican descent.

But as its name “La Raza” implies, it is actually a racist organization. La Raza denies it’s racist, insisting instead that its name “La Raza” actually means the innocuous, non-race-specific, warm-and-fuzzy “The People.” That is political sophistry. Go to any Spanish-English dictionary and search for the English translation of “raza.” I did, and this is what I found:

Google English Spanish Translation for raza:

Dictionary – View detailed dictionary

  1. noun
    1. race
    2. breed
    3. strain
    4. colorcast

In other words, La Raza is a racist Latino, mainly Hispanic, organization that champions the “rights” of illegal immigrants aliens, as well as advocates open borders and the return (Reconquista) of the southwestern US to Mexico.

The territory in red represents radical Hispanics’ fantasy and goal of Aztlan – the mythic homeland of the “brown race” (their term, not mine).

Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor was a 6-year member of La Raza.

This racist organization receives funding from philanthropic organizations, such as the Ford Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as corporations such as Citigroup and Wal-Mart. La Raza also receives some $5 million of our tax dollars each year — when America is more than $14 trillion in debt.

Ask yourself this question: Would the US government ever provide funding to a group that champions the rights of the “white” race or the rights of any other outlaw group? But our feral gubbmint is doing just that, pouring our hardearned dollars into this rat hole that champions the rights of ILLEGAL immigrants. For those who are language-challenged, illegal means OUTLAW!

Ralph Alter writes in the American Thinker, Stop government funding of La Raza,” March 11, 2011:

As we observe the baby steps being taken by the newly elected budget-cutting Congress of 2010, we are coming to realize how absurd the old Washington political approach of throwing money at our problems is. The remarkable capitalist engine driving our free republic had become so incredibly powerful that for decades politicians have been able to shovel billions of dollars toward our foreign allies and adversaries, developed a safety net that assured food and medical care for nearly all U.S. citizens (and millions of non-citizens) and funded crackpot studies of no use and political causes of nearly every stripe.

The funding for one such political group seems particularly inappropriate considering our current fiscal dilemma. Mike Piccione at Human Events pulled the tax returns from 2006 to 2009 for the radical Latino group, the National Council of La Raza, and discovered that our federal government shelled out nearly $12 million to help the controversial group promote open borders and amnesty for illegals during that period.

La Raza translates from the Spanish to “the Race.” The group has been associated with the motto: “Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza, nada.” This translates as “For The Race, everything, outside The Race, nothing.” The group publicly rejects it’s link to this motto as well as any connection to the popular Mexican concept of “reconquista” (Mexico) or taking back the southwestern United States by overwhelming demographics.

The details of La Raza’s use of those federal funds includes generous compensation to 17 foundation officers and board members ranging from $119,675 to $378,446. The tax returns also itemize a total of $800,787 for expenses “to lobby the U.S. government for money.”

Apparently at one time this made sense. A similar donation to a white supremacist group would never had gotten out of the gate. Paying special interest groups in order to enable them to lobby the government to pay them to lobby doesn’t seem like a very good investment, especially to a group promoting the continuation and extension of billions of dollars in payments for the welfare, education and medical payments for non U.S. citizens.

Call or write your congressman and insist that all funding to La Raza be ended.
