Godfather Politics

I was listening to Mark Levin last night on Sirius/XM when I heard him discussing an article I think came from the American Spectator. It was about Cesar Chávez and illegal immigration….

Cesar Chávez believed ferociously in the border of the United States — because that border protected his union. So ferociously did he hold this view that the New York Times ran a story detailing an accusation that the union Chavez founded, the United Farm Workers, set up a 100 mile ‘wet line’ to keep ‘wetbacks’ and ‘illegals’ — yes, all of those are Chavez’s words — out of the United States. So let’s go back in the time machine to the period when Chavez was rocketing to fame….

The following video is an interview featuring Cesar Chavez (September 25, 1972), KQED News report in which Chavez explains, “that legitimate strikes by agricultural workers can always be broken by employers bringing in illegal labor from Mexico.”

Cesar Chavez Used The Term “Wetbacks” and “Illegals” to Describe Migrant Workers from Mexico

Below is a 1974 article from El Malcriado, the farm workers underground newspaper which was founded I believe in 1964 entitled, “Chavez Assails Use of ‘Illegals’ in Mendota Rally” – El Malcriado – Voice of the Farm Worker July 31, 1974, pg. 3)

Mendota, Calif. — Cesar Chavez urged fellow farmworkers at a rally here to circulate petitions to tell legislators in Washington, D.C. to stop the large flow of “illegal aliens”, who are depriving the farmworkers of their jobs.

The followers, only a. few in number four years ago, are now a .large UFW organizing group in Mendota, a campesino town ‘that primarily harvests melons.

Chavez Said, ’1 Illegals are invading the country because the Nixon Administration is permitting it.” He added that they come not only from Mexico, but from Costa Rica, San Salvador, the Philippines and the Arab nations in the hundreds and thousands and take away our jobs.

Chavez pointed out that the growers who hire the “illegals,” are closely tied to the Immigration Department, the Justice Department, and the Federal Government.

Chants of “huelga, huelga, huelga” came in an uproar When Chavez remarked in Spanish “that the only cure for this sickness of exploitation of the farm workers by the growers, is a medicine called, “HUELGA!”


Mark Levin is on point; Progressives from Barack Obama to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to the Congressional Black Caucus who repeatedly pretend to honor Cesar Chavez are (i) engaging in Progressive revisionist history and (ii) spitting on the grave and legacy of Cesar Chavez.  H/t Give Me Liberty.

One final note, illegal immigration is not a civil right.

Grumpy Opinions

Seriously… the answer is probably no, which means he put together the known facts about the Ukraine situation, and came to the same conclusions as The Mad Jewess.

More on that a few paragraphs down.

Yesterday morning, while most people are still asleep I was going through the news reading whatever articles caught my attention. I happened to click on Jed Babbin’s American Spectator article “Death On Putin’s Playground“. The article was pretty much a rehash of what every one else has been saying about the downing of MH 17 over rebel held territory in Eastern Ukraine.

In all fairness Babbin’s article had a slightly different twist, but for the most part, it was the same old, same old.

Putin gave the Russian Separatists the BUK Missiles to Ukraine, John Kerry’s State Department says Putin’s insurgents fired them. Case Closed.. Babbin didn’t bother to mention that the Ukrainian’s also have BAK Missiles and Russian Trained operators.

I’m also more than a little skeptical of anything that comes out of Hanoi John Kerry’s State Department.. It was only a year ago that he told us the horrific chemical attack the killed hundreds of Syrian civilians was the work of the Syrian Government, because the rebels didn’t posses the chemicals or have a delivery system. When he said it I’d already found proof Obama’s so called good rebels owned the both the chemicals and the delivery system.. a later MIT study determined the attack had to originate from positions held by the Rebels held the only positions the day of the attack..

Getting back to Ukraine… There’s another reason I’m skeptical about the Administration’s positition

The Mad Jewess, a friend and contributor at Grumpy Opinions has a different take…..

Continue reading – HUH? Does Ron Paul get His News from The Mad Jewess?


Allow me to bask and reflect on the theory that great minds think alike.  In the meantime, why don’t you head over to new website of  the The Mad Jewess, here.  I promise you will not be disappointed unless, of course, you’re a Commie troll.



Deneen Borelli, C. L. Bryant Verbally Assaulted for Attending NAACP Convention

Deneen Borelli

Nobody said being on the front lines of liberty is going to be easy and this is especially true at the 105th NAACP annual meeting that is being held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.

Our goal is to simply expose the attendees to the opportunities offered by seeking free-market solutions to problems plaguing the black community.

However, our presence at the meeting was not welcomed by all.

Rev. C.L. Bryant and I were verbally attacked by an attendee for being at the NAACP’s meeting.

Progressives Today captured the incident at the FreedomWorks booth in the exhibit hall.

Later today, I’m leading a Liberty Summit panel discussion at the same hotel where the NAACP meeting is being held.

Sadly, this individual did not even want us to be there.


Of the mindset that speaking over someone means that they’ve won the argument, the voices of ignorance never realize that they have been bamboozled as is the case of Adrienne Jones (above video) who has proven nothing except that she is one ignorant and delusional Black woman.

Having been brainwashed and locked down on the Progressive plantation her whole life, Jones is incapable of thinking for herself. She espouses propaganda.

Sadly enough, there are millions of Adrienne Joneses across the United States.

I commend Deneen Borelli and Rev. C. L. Bryant for walking into that den of ignorance but since I have a family full of kool-aid slurpers myself, I do not envy the patriots.

Rant over.


Report: Fictional People Able to Sign Up for Obamacare, Get Subsidies


, , , site

By Katrina Trinko, The Daily Signal

That’s the takeaway from a report issued Wednesday by the Government Accountability Office. The GAO created 12 imaginary identities, which were used by people who signed up for Obamacare

Eleven of them succeeded in obtaining coverage—and received subsidies.

“The total amount of these credits for the 11 approved applications is about $2,500 monthly or about $30,000 annually. We also obtained cost-sharing reduction subsidies, according to marketplace representatives, in at least nine of the 11 cases,” GAO’s Seth Bagdoyan said, according to NBC News.

Read full article

Pursuant to  the Government Accountability Office’s report entitled, “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: Preliminary Results of Undercover Testing of Enrollment Controls for Health Care Coverage and Consumer Subsidies Provided Under the Act”:

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) officials told us they have internal controls for health care coverage eligibility determinations. GAO’s undercover testing addressed processes for identity- and income-verification, with preliminary results revealing questions as follows:

  •  For 12 applicant scenarios, GAO tested “front-end” controls for verifying an applicant’s identity or citizenship/immigration status. Marketplace applications require attestations that information provided is neither false nor untrue. In its applications, GAO also stated income at a level to qualify for income-based subsidies to offset premium costs and reduce cost sharing. For 11 of these 12 applications, which were made by phone and online using fictitious identities, GAO obtained subsidized coverage. For one application, the marketplace denied coverage because GAO’s fictitious applicant did not provide a Social Security number as part of the test. 
  •  The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires the marketplace to provide eligibility while identified inconsistencies between information provided by the applicant and by government sources are being resolved through submission of supplementary documentation from the applicant. For its 11 approved applications, GAO was directed to submit supporting documents, such as proof of income or citizenship; but, GAO found the document submission and review process to be inconsistent among these applications. As of July 2014, GAO had received notification that portions of the fake documentation sent for two enrollees had been verified. According to CMS, its document processing contractor is not required to authenticate documentation; the contractor told us it does not seek to detect fraud and accepts documents as authentic unless there are obvious alterations. As of July 2014, GAO continues to receive subsidized coverage for the 11 applications, including 3 applications where GAO did not provide any requested supporting documents. 
  • For 6 applicant scenarios, GAO sought to test the extent to which, if any, in-person assisters would encourage applicants to misstate income in order to qualify for income-based subsidies. However, GAO was unable to obtain in-person assistance in 5 of the 6 initial undercover attempts. For example, one in-person assister initially said that he provides assistance only after people already have an application in progress. The in-person assister was not able to assist us because website was down and did not respond to follow-up phone calls. One in-person assister correctly advised the GAO undercover investigator that the stated income would not qualify for subsidy….

Read full article

Just ducky, thugs, swindler, freeloaders and illegal aliens all are working against the interests of the American people as they vie for a share of subsidies.

Besides being a boondoggle, Obamacare is working exactly as planned. It was set up to be a money and power grab for the Commie elites.

HUD Will Force Illegal Immigrants on Neighborhoods


, ,


Independent Sentinel

LaRaza and other far-left groups are strongly backing a rule that will take effect in October which will likely end up forcing towns and cities to accept illegal immigrants among other “protected” classes of people.

Barack Obama is a believer in social engineering. This rule will give him the power to redistribute illegal immigrants, drug addicts, criminals, everyone who fits into a “protected class” according to the government’s definition throughout every neighborhood in the country and do it according to racial quotas.

LaRaza said that “Hispanic families often do not know their housing rights and have cited fear of deportation as reason for not reporting rights violations.” The majority of people who fear deportation are illegal, unskilled, poor, welfare recipients and they are coming into this country in the hundreds of thousands each month.

The housing rule passed July, 2013 ties government zoning rules to HUD grants and it opens communities up to lawsuits if they refuse their quota.

Every town and city that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will necessarily abide by the rule change to the Fair Housing Act of 1968 passed in 2013.

Any town or city taking grants, starting in October, will see HUD come in and rezone entire areas that do not include enough affordable housing according to their standards and according to who they define as “protected classes” of people. Packets have already been forwarded to grant recipients.

The grants are a Trojan Horse….

Illegal Immigration And Gangs: Someday Our Cities Will Burn Because We Didn’t Protect Our Borders


The truth can some times be a hard pill to swallow but it does not good to look the other way.  The clock is  ticking America, let’s get on this.

Latin-Kings-by-Javier-Ramirez-300x300Did you know that the number of illegal immigrants that enter Texas each week is greater than the number of babies being born to citizens of that state?  The mainstream media is shining the spotlight very brightly on all of the children that are coming over, and there is a reason for that.  They are trying to tug on our heartstrings.  But there is another part of the story that you aren’t hearing much about.  By refusing to protect our borders, Barack Obama has allowed hundreds of thousands of gang members to illegally enter the United States and settle in our major cities.  In many communities, gang activity is already wildly out of control, and someday our cities will burn because of the foolishness of the federal government.

The Obama administration knows that one out of every five illegal immigrants has a criminal record.  And we are not just…

Fast and Furious Is Alive and Well and Is Being Used to Expand Drug and Gun Trafficking


Eric Holder and Barack Obama may be under the impression that America have forgotten about the death of Brian Terry, the sins of the ATF, i.e., Operation Fast and Furious but WE WILL NEVER FORGET. No, this is not over.

Originally posted on :


According to my confidential sources the manner in which the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) deals with confiscated weapons associated with the commission of a drug crime has changed. Formerly, when the DEA would execute a drug bust and seize weapons, they would simply destroy the guns, unless the guns were to be used as evidence in an upcoming trial. In such cases, guns would be destroyed when they had outlived their evidentiary usefulness. Then came along Mr. Fast and Furious, Eric Holder who has ordered that all guns seized by any Federal agency, including the DEA, must be turned over to the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). Some of you who know your history already know where this is going.

Those Who Do Not Remember Their History Are Doomed to Repeat It

This is certainly great news that Campaign for Liberty?s top legislative priority and Ron Paul?s signature legislation is once again moving in the House. Now it?s incumbent upon us to finish the job.
