On Tuesday, April 15, CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my most recent commentary. The subject of my posting is the way that politicians and all too many “journalists” spew all sorts of nonsense about immigration that is nothing more than thinly disguised propaganda.
The Founding Fathers understood the true importance to the democratic process of having a well informed citizenry. That is precisely why the First Amendment is the First Amendment.
All too often news programs become purveyors of misinformation and disinformation- also known as propaganda.
In his novel, “1984,” George Orwell referred to this sort of artful use of deceptive language as “Newspeak.”
The title of my piece makes use of an expression commonly used among the members of our armed forces and others who work for government. The phrase to which I refer is “The Mushroom Treatment.”
Immigration is hardly the single issue that the open borders advocates whom I have come to refer to as the “Immigration Anarchists” would have you believe it is. They may try to convince everyone that all that is “broken” about the immigration system is the failure to effectively secure the border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico. While that border is anything but secure and absolutely needs to be made secure, there are far more dysfunctional components of the immigration system that undermine public safety, national security, our nation’s economy and many other critically important challenges facing America and Americans today.
My commentary provides the sort of information that should be reported by the mainstream media but just about never is.
If you find my article to be helpful kindly forward this e-mail to as many of your friends and ask them, in turn, to do the same. I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth.”

The importance of our borders and our immigration laws cannot be overemphasized. In the war on terror and transnational gangs, they are our first line of defense and our last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals. They are equally important to American workers who are facing unfair competition from foreign workers, aided and abetted by the administration and advocates for “Sanctuary Cities” and Comprehensive Immigration Reform,
On July 2, 2013 the Washington Times published my Op-Ed:
In his historic speech before the 3rd Army on May 31, 1944, General George S. Patton said, on the strategy of holding a position:
“We’re not holding anything, we’ll let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly, and we’re not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy.”
Pushing back against Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the same as holding position. The time has come for us to advance by demanding that our borders be made truly secure and our immigration laws be effectively administered and enforced.
Comprehensive Immigration Reform violates all of the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission but no one is willing to even consider how the lack of real border security and the lack of real integrity to the various components of the immigration system imperil national security and public safety.
Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat confronting the United States today! Simply stated, the immigration laws were enacted to save lives and protect the jobs of American workers.
It is not “Anti-Immigrant” to be “Pro-American!”
Our armed forces are charged with securing America’s borders externally while the DHS is supposed to secure those same borders from within. The failures of the DHS to live up to its half of the equation are undermining the efforts, valor and incredible sacrifices of Americas men and women who serve in our military!
If our government’s failures to protect American jobs by securing our nation’s borders and effectively enforcing our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative. This is not only your right- it is your obligation!
All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!
We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.
This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!
You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!
Democracy is not a spectator sport!
Lead, follow or get out of the way!
