"The Left, especially its local light-readers, have vehemently denied that any of this is happening."

It would be interesting to know if they
a) deny it *or*
b) simply don't care *or*
c) are in favor of being pushed out of the way because of cultural guilt or DIVERSITY!

I'd hate to accuse someone of one when it's something else.

George Rebane

Scenes 1223pm - these pages document 'denial'. Moreover, the local leftwing loonies reliably accuse my posts on Reconquista as only the product of an ignorant rightwinger alone in these foothills. The extent(sic) of their knowledge base on what's happening in the country is truly remarkable in this age of limitless communications.

,,,Mexicans are the New Palestinians!!!

George Rebane

AVMan 309pm - In what sense do you mean that? Mexicans have their own country, Palestinians don't. Did you know that?

Don Bessee

Now Dr. R, don't expect the pathetic party parrot trolls to deviate from the talking points, evil Jews stole Palestine memba? Never mind those pesky facts.

We must take back our education system and inculcate our American values and language or we will be toast.

"Palestinians don't."

I always thought it was called 'Jordan'.

L

Scenes @ 8:38, exactly correct. The Arabs demanded an Arab state in the Mandate of Palestine and in 1923, they got it with the Brits rewarding their ally Hussein of Hejaz with a Palestinian population in a new country called Trans-Jordan. That was 80% of the mandate. Further, of late news, the Golan heights were originally part of the Palestine mandate and only 'traded' to the French in Syria in exchange for Syria's return of the Turkish province of Hatay to Turkey, the Brits giving Syria what was not theirs to give. Absent that, the Golan would have been Israeli from 1947.

Somebody maintaining that Palestinians do have a country today?

L

George @ 11:17. They do indeed have a country, the problem was (is?) it's ruled by a clan most Palestinian Arabs consider foreign- that's what Black September was al about. So yeah, Jordan is Palestine. The only other place in history we find that name is as the Roman province of Palestra. Arabs don't much differ by race, religion, or language, little by custom and hardly at all by political persuasion, whereas Israel has had a distinct national identity for millennia.

Our tour guide on the Mexican Rivera last Fall hoped their new President wouldn't be corrupt like the last one he replaced. I've been researching why so many of our Gov Representatives don't support Pres Trumps border wall. They don't seem to think normally about many things that should be obvious. How do so many, like Nancy Pelosi and President Obama become multi-millionaires? They always say "follow the money" and our southern border has had a long history financing mobsters on both sides. Pretty interesting...

Behind the El Chapo trial: what's been left unsaid in a New York courtroom...The alleged Mexican drug kingpin’s trial resumes on Thursday but, amid riveting testimony so far, strange silences have lurked

Guzman's lawyers may not get to pursue these relationships, which complicate the usual narrative of good, honest DEA detective work, even though an addendum to a Department of Justice audit of the agency, published in March 2017, voiced “specific concerns about how the DEA used and paid confidential sources”, with “potential implications for national security”.

Also excluded was an attempt by the defence to ask prosecution witnesses about “Operation Fast and Furious”, a project run by the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to allow weapons to enter Mexico illegally, through cooperating straw-buyers, in hopes of catching their final recipients.

Of the 2,000 guns allowed to “walk” between 2007 and 2011, only 665 were recovered, one of them in Guzmán’s’s lair in 2014 – but none of this can feature at trial.

The evidence about money has been detailed when it is “back in Mexico”, but coy when it moves beyond there. Martínez flew planes loaded with cash – between $8m and $10m from Tijuana three times a month – and hauled a Samsonite case filled with $10m to “a Mexico City bank” monthly. Cash deposits are described hidden beneath beds and even underwater.

But there the money-trail ends, though the US Senate’s and Department of Justice’s own investigations have established that hundreds of millions proceeded through the Wachovia and HSBC banks north of the border – these play no part in evidence hitherto. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/apr/03/us-bank-mexico-drug-gangs

As the violence spread, billions of dollars of cartel cash began to seep into the global financial system. But a special investigation by the Observer reveals how the increasingly frantic warnings of one London whistleblower (WikiLeaks Julian Assange?) were ignored. The whistleblowing website WikiLeaks has received praise as well as criticism. The organisation has won a number of awards, ... WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is Australian. https://narcosphere.narconews.com/notebook/bill-conroy/2018/01/wikileaks-julian-assange-accused-endangering-whistleblowers.html

And the beat goes on as to why we don't have a southern border wall, or fence to protect America from unlawful invasion. Hungarys new wall (fence) really benefitted them. On the day its border fence was completed, the influx of illegals entering Hungary went down from 6,353 one day to 870 the next. For the remainder of that month, illegal border crossings were steadily below 40 per day, officials said.

re: Bonnie McGuire@1:39PM

A thing I've picked up from news articles about the Hungarian fence is that they did an absolutely brilliant thing.

They stick the fence inside the country a little ways and park the detainment center outside of the fence. This is a really clever idea and we should do it here when possible.

Who should "take back our education system " Todd, the Feds, State or local?

In a thread on the Reconquista and borders.

Todd: "We must take back our education system and inculcate our American values and language or we will be toast."
Paul: "Who should "take back our education system " Todd, the Feds, State or local?"

Any chance you guys could move your bromance back to the Sandbox? Just asking.

Heading in a tougher direction -

Stick to the topic gentlemen.

L 222pm - Well, apparently the Palestinians don't know any of that, since for some 70 years they have been appealing to the wrong people to get their country back. Maybe you could email them ;-)

Don Bessee

I have pointed to this before but there may be the will to get it done in the current crisis and what with the heading in a tougher direction moves in recent days -

"Well, apparently the Palestinians don't know any of that, since for some 70 years they have been appealing to the wrong people to get their country back."

I'd say that they appealed quite strongly in September of 1970.

Bill Tozer

Since we have traveled miles from the topic of this land belongs to Mexico, I will post this here.

“Speakers such as Marc Lamont Hill and slam poet Remi Kanazi’s calls to end Israel as the Jewish State were met with enthusiasm and applause.” Schildcrout added “During the panel with Marc Lamont Hill, the moderator, Yamila Hussein, conflated Zionism with white supremacy.”
