Democratic National Committee head uses racist, inflammatory statements

by Jack Minor

 

In an indication of what can be expected during the 2012 campaign, the new chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee apparently has no problem accusing opponents of racism, wanting to kill people and other “hateful” words.

 Rep. Debbie Schultz (D-Fla.) was elected chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee in April. Speaking at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast, Schultz was advocating for immigration reform. She said “the Republican solution that I’ve seen in the last three years is that we should just pack them all up and ship them back to their own countries and that, in fact, it should be a crime and we should arrest them all.”

 Conservative groups have commented that Schultz’s statements are incredible because illegal immigration is, by definition, illegal and a crime.

 Following the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords by a left wing shooter, prominent liberals demanded that conservatives stop using what they called “hateful” speech. NPR said Arizona had “been roiled by incendiary debate over illegal immigrants and has also become ground zero for those questioning Obama’s birthplace.”

 Politico.com reported that a veteran Democratic operative told them that Obama needs “to deftly pin this on the tea partiers just like the Clinton White house deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.”

 The call for civility appears not to apply to Schultz. Among other statements, Schultz said Republican attempts to reduce the deficit would kill seniors. She made it plain she was not speaking figuratively. She said “this plan would literally be a death trap for seniors.”

 Attempts to safeguard the integrity of the ballot box are called racist. Currently, if a person shows up to vote and there is a question about their being registered to vote they can cast a provisional ballot, which is held until the person’s eligibility can be confirmed.  Appearing on a show with Roland Martin, an African-American political commentator for CNN Schultz said Republicans, “literally want to drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws.”

 GOP leaders expressed outrage with the statement, saying Schultz’s statement was basically calling Republicans racists for wanting to ensure only eligible citizens voted in elections.

 Schultz went on to say voter fraud was almost non-existent. “There’s so little voter fraud, and I mean you’re more likely to get hit by lightning than you are to see an instance of voter fraud in this country.”

 The statement contradicts Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, who said records indicate there is a possibility that as many as 5000 ineligible voters may have cast a ballot in the last election.

 Schultze’s comments echo those by another former DNC interim chair, Donna Brazile, who said Florida election law changes following widespread fraud by ACORN in the last presidential election amounted to attempting to keep black voters from voting. In a USA Today column, Brazile criticized changes to voting laws in Florida that would require groups conducting voter registration drives to turn in forms within 48 hours of gathering the signature. Other changes in the law would change early voting from 14 days to eight.

    ALL STATES ARE IN A CATASTROPHIC MODE, EXCEPT FOR ALABAMA, GEORGIA IF THEY DON”T START RECOGNIZING THAT THE NEW POPULATIONS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE ECONOMIC. THOSE POLITICIANS THAT HESITATE WILL FEEL THE HEAT FROM THE PUBLIC, IF THEY ARE NOT PROTECTED AGAINST HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF UNLAWFUL PEOPLE STEALING JOBS, LOWERING WAGES AND DRAINING STATE COFFERS.

    Because of trust in our politicians is zeroing-out, our only hope of closing down the magnet of jobs that keeps the streams of illegal aliens from getting jobs. Americans must be adamant on insisting that the legislators enact a—MANDATORY—E-Verify, to include Secure Communities. E-Verify to bring severe sanctions to businesses that cross the line of hiring illegal labor. Secure Communities is for police action of fingerprinting those who are arrested, with this personal data being cross-checked through ICE and Homeland Security.

    Two of these comments have been added, because they have profession knowledge of this disastrous immigration chaos. The Socialist Progressives will keep this information quietly tucked up neatly in a dark corner. You should also calculate the costs that will accelerate, if we don’t stop this epidemic now?

    The WIC, Women Infants and Children’, program should be renamed Women Illegal’s and Children. Once again we see how the welfare system is a complete failure, doing nothing to prevent fraud – and even encouraging it, in this case, and bilking taxpayers for billions every year. This despite Progressive politicians’ claims that we can’t cut a single penny or families will “starve”. In this report, Kelly Baker, a former WIC employee (and a national hero for coming forward) from DeKalb County, GA, exposes how folks in luxury SUVs can walk into the WIC office with expired or even FOREIGN IDs and walk out thousands of dollars in WIC vouchers – and even sell them for cash down the block. Illegal aliens are bilking the welfare system while so many American citizens go without. This is a disgrace and these WIC officials should be prosecuted. Legislation should be immediately introduced to mandate citizenship ID for welfare.

    This second commentary describes the health care system, which has become a massive cost for taxpayers once again.
    First off, illegal aliens are not immigrants. Immigrants follow laws. They get free health care by not paying bills when going to emergency rooms, giving false names and addresses etc… It also cost American taxpayers over $6000.00 per birth for each “A” baby born. That is if there are no complications. In a recent year in Colorado, the state’s emergency Medicaid program paid an estimated $30 million in hospital and physician delivery costs for about 6,000 illegal immigrant mothers – average of $5,000 per baby. Those 6,000 births to illegal aliens represent 40% of the births paid for by Medicaid in Colorado. Those 6,000 babies immediately became U.S. citizens and qualified for full Medicaid services, with a cost yet to be tabulated. The federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) mandate that U.S. hospitals with emergency-room services must treat anyone who requires care, including illegal aliens. Medical service for Americans in affected communities is being severely damaged as hospitals absorb more than $200 million in non-reimbursed costs.

    Some emergency rooms have shut down because they cannot afford to stay open. (Hospitals and clinics have also shut down in California and Arizona.) Local tax-paying Americans are either denied medical care or have to wait in long lines for service as the illegal’s flood the facilities. In California, the losses are calculated to be about $79 million, with $74 million in Texas, $31 million in Arizona, and $6 million in New Mexico. These costs are staggering. The Cochise County, Arizona Health Department spends as much as 30 percent of its annual $9 million budget on illegal aliens. The Copper Queen Hospital in Bisbee, Arizona, has spent $200,000 in uncompensated services out of a net operating budget of $300,000. The University Medical Center in Tucson may lose as much as $10 million and the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, also in Tucson, has lost $1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2002.

    ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION HEALTH CARE COSTS AFFECT YOU! Published 06/01/2010 – CST By Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D. In both Tucson and Dallas where I have practiced medicine, hospitals are struggling under massive costs of uncompensated medical services for uninsured people who, by federal law, cannot be turned away for lack of insurance or ability to pay. How much does this uncompensated care actually cost taxpayers? The incredible answer: no one knows. We only have “estimates” of the costs to taxpayers to treat illegal immigrants because hospitals and public health clinics do not ask for proof of citizenship before providing care. What are consequences to taxpaying citizens?

    1. Increased cost and reduced access to trauma care. Tucson has lost all but one Level I Trauma Center to serve all of southern Arizona, in large part due to massive, unsustainable losses from uncompensated care. Auto accidents involving overloaded vans of illegal aliens happen regularly in southern Arizona. Injured are flown by air ambulance to University Medical Center’s Trauma Center and treated with state of the art care….all at taxpayer expense.

    2. 2. A registered nurse involved with the Pima County health system since the 1970’s who must remain anonymous because of her role, said she has never seen any staff member at either El Rio Clinic or Pima County Health Department ask for proof of citizenship before providing free medical services (immunizations, Well Baby checks, food stamps, WIC services, birth control, and even elective abortions). Costs are paid by taxpayers. When funds are depleted, low income American citizens have fewer services and longer waits as a result.

    3. 3. This same RN also said: “I personally know Mexican men who married 16 year old girls, got them pregnant, brought them to Tucson for the baby to become a US citizen. They live-in Mexico but comes here for their health care. Taxpayers pay for this medical care many ways, at the Public Health Department, and with school nurses who provide care.”

    4. 4. Uncompensated medical services for illegal immigrants mean higher premiums for all of us due to cost shifting among all third party payers. To cover the deficits from “free” medical services they provide, the administration at University Physicians Health System Kino campus is analyzing how much to increase employee health insurance premiums as of July 1.

    5. 5. Obamacare cuts benefits to American citizens: $500 billion in Medicare cuts and slashing the Medicare Advantage program. Medicare Advantage, chosen by one in five seniors, is the most popular plan for low and moderate income seniors, and covers about half of our Hispanic or African-American elderly. My patients on Medicare have worked and paid into the system over their working careers, yet these cuts mean fewer health care available to them now. We certainly cannot afford to cover those here illegally.

    6. 6. Hospitals in Tucson and Dallas also provide uncompensated (”free”) maternity services to pregnant women here illegally. Their babies then become US citizens entitled to all of the services available for low income American families” food stamps, WIC, immunizations, office visits, medications, etc. This drives up costs to all of us: higher premiums for private insurance companies, and higher taxes for government insurance like Arizona’s Medicaid (AHCCCS).

    7. 7. Professional estimates are that over half of the pregnant women served at Parkland Hospital in Dallas are in this country illegally. With over 16,000 deliveries a year, Parkland is one of the nation’s busiest maternity services with prenatal clinics for low income women to receive free prenatal care, nutrition, medication, birthing classes, child care classes, and free supplies (formula, diapers, bottles, car seats). Taxpayers pay the bills.

    So the Leftists say that illegal aliens pay into the system. The last I heard the (GAO) General Accounting Office stated that for every 1 dollar spent by illegal aliens, they receive back in child and tax refunds 3-4 dollars. Another mass amnesty similar to the 1986 bill would cost American taxpayers $2.5 trillion dollars, according to the Non-profit Hermitage Foundation. Then (FAIR) Federation of American Immigration reform says the federal government expenditure (not States) is $113 billion dollars a year on health care. We must cut off all these public benefits, so the economic foreigners return home. In Ellis Island days there were no public services, just the charity of churches and other organizations. Unlike today, that these illegal aliens are already knowledgeable of all the welfare State, the free health care, education for their children.

    More in depth information is available at FAIRS website. Adding to that NumbersUSA has inside informants of stealth laws, which are passed to the detriment of taxpayers. Then Judicial Watch will spill the beans on fraud and corruption in Washington and the states. My suggestion is join the TEA PARTY as thousands are each day, to rid ourselves of “Tax and Spend’’ Liberal Democrats. Remember the TEA PARTY is the people of America who will secure the borders and track all persons who enter America, who enter illegally. The will enforce the 1986 Immigration laws, with no enactment of an Amnesty. Even the instant citizenship baby law, will be revisited. The American people who unemployed need to contact their federal and State Representatives to insist they enact mandatory E-Verify, Secure Communities policing law for every State at Senate—202-224–3121/ House—202-225–3121.

    WE THE PEOPLE.

    AMNESTY or as the Pro-illegal immigration groups prefer to label it–Immigration Reform. The truth is not ever going to happen? The 1986 IRCA was a utter calamity and costly for taxpayers. The 1986 (IRCA) Immigration Control and Reform Act that was a mass amnesty, which became the prime deception, played on the American taxpayer of all time. Because of despicably fraud and supreme neglect, the 2 million farmer’s laborers and other illegal workers who were provided a legal course to citizenship, that ultimately turned into 6 million. Even inexplicable those people, who received this pardon, vanished from their usual places of employment and turned up in the job force around the country that Americans citizens had to compete with. Future wise, Congress proposed the I-9 Form (Employment Eligibility Verification Form.) to ensure that all employees presented documentary proof of their legal eligibility, to accept employment in the United States. If the employee has a hiring issue, and chooses to contest an irregularity notice, the employer prints out the “Referral Letter” from the E-Verify program.

    The letter contains information about resolving the problem, as well as the contact information for the (SSA) Social security Administration) or (USCIS) US Citizenship and Immigration Service, depending on which bureau was the source of the non-authorization to resolve the problem? As constantly the open border zealots, US Chamber of Commerce, ACLU and a radical mix of anti American organizations, have used the Liberal Press as a fulcrum to regrettably try to suppress the implementation of E-Verify. Are we not in the poorhouse with China, as it is? But this is no firm binder, because millions more people will strive to reach here, before that ominous Using the media these groups have also brought pressure on the administration not to espouse the Secure Communities law, which identifies criminal aliens through fingerprints by informing ICE. Then Subsequently E-Verify that is increasingly more popular each day by business owners. They are now cautiously aware that an I-9 audit puts their business license in jeopardy, as upheld by the Supreme Court.

    NOW THE RUSH HAS BEGAN TO DEFEND CITIZENS AND LEGAL RESIDENTS AGAINST THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION. FIRST ARIZONA, NOW ALABAMA, GEORGIA AND SOON MANY MORE STATES WILL FOLLOW. E-VERIFY IS THE LAW OF THE LAND AND THOUSANDS OF FOREIGNERS NOT WANTING BE CONFRONTED THESE LAWS, WILL HEAD FOR THOSE STATES THAT HAVE BEEN KIDNAPPED BY THE LEFTIST PROGRESSIVES OF OPEN BORDERS AGENDA’S.

    As with the 1986 (IRCA) bill those who advocate against the laws are profiteers for more wealth, or to accumulate more votes or just to prepare America (according to the WikiLeaks group founder Julian Assange in secret documents) for merging with some kind of traitorous program, with Canada and Mexico with one currency. This stealth agenda was collusion between the Canadian and American Ambassadors.

    The other side of the aisle on the corrupt Washington beltway, says we cannot afford to enforce immigration laws? Then my question we had better figure someway, for as the law stands we are just encouraging more illegal newcomers? So the second question, when does this invasion end, when does the lawmakers install laws, that make it impossible to stop this travesty? Are we just going to leave the doors open and hope for the best? All we are encouraging is even more poverty and distressed people, that taxpayers have to bear the full fiscal impact? Ten years from now, population numbers will be skyrocketing and the only winners are the profit-takers.

    Whether we are coming out this miserable recession or not, we cannot afford any immigration amnesty. The first Amnesty in 1986 Ronald Reagan’s term of office, cost–$76 BILLION DOLLARS–by the time it was fulfilled. In today money it’s expected to cost $2.6 TRILLION DOLLARS as stated the Heritage Foundation. So taxpayers would be expected to cover that bill, lending most of it from China again? Are we not in the poorhouse with China, as it is? But this is no firm binder, because millions more people will strive to reach here, before that ominous inauguration day of a new Immigration Reform bill. If Congress is unable to cut spending in this recent of 14 .5 Trillion dollars US Treasury deficit, can anybody in the right frame of mind, tell us where we intend to get another $2.5 trillion dollars, to subsidize those illegal immigrants already living here? These dollars are inconceivable and even if there was another. It’s outrageous that Washington politicians would expect to bleed even more money from traumatic Taxpayers, when we are confronted by rejuvenating two nations abroad, in millions of dollars a day.

    Amnesty, it will only further multitudes of people to come here? Washington legislators come and go, author bills, but are never held accountable for the financial wrecks they leave behind? Only Secure Communities, E-Verify can mitigate some of the pressure that will make foreign nationals think twice before crossing the border, or entering America by other means. This isn’t about any particular race, a person’s politics, religion as we are all suffering. It’s not even about the legal Hispanic population, as they are under the same pain of finding a job, stagnant wages and some type of exploitation. We are all the same boat and without stringent restrictions on immigration and its costs, that boat is heading towards rough waters and could easily sink. The TEA PARTY will slow down this process by confronting Washington aggressively on birthright citizenship to rescind it, which will sever the bond of 300.000 babies from foreign nation getting instant citizenship; cutting down on the annual monolithic cost to subsidize these offspring and families.

    It will also bring to a halt, which it attributed to this wrongly conferred law, saving taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars a year? The TEA PARTY will examine these unfair taxes placed on Americans, by Liberal oriented courts, to appoint obligations to educate, provide health care that comes with the never ending tide of illegal aliens skirting our laws. The TEA PARTY will created bills to up the penalty, for entering America as a felony. This should have been the law of the land, decades ago? Personally, it has always translated to prove there was no serious intention to enforce these laws. It’s in the vein of a conspirator’s reason, why the Southern border fences completion remains a fiasco. The Tea Party will enforce the 1986 (IRCA) law as was planned, with no complicity of government agencies to stifle those laws, such as the business influence.

    The TEA PARTY in 2012 will remove the Liberal influence and even have the empowerment to construct the real border fence, and mandating with no exemptions E-Verify and Secure Communities and indefinitely remove Sanctuary Cities nationwide. As the Tea Party grows against the powerful influences in Washington, these Representatives like TEA PARTY Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota will retire those pro-illegal immigrant politicians, Governors, mayors and all those who have adversely affected strong laws that have been introduced. The American People should not be forced by law, to pay for the impoverished people that trespass into America from other countries.

    We can aid our fellow legal workers out, by taking immigration one step towards generic “Citizens Arrest. We cannot apprehend a suspicious individual, as it could lead to legal action. But we have the opportunity to join other “Whistle blowers” to inform ICE or local police as irregularities stand out. Not speaking reasonable English is a dead give-away, specifically in factory environment and if somebody has an accident through not comprehending a warning notice.

    The time is ripe to contact their federal and State Representatives to insist they enact mandatory E-Verify, Secure Communities for every State, at the Senate—202-224–3121/ House—202-225–3121.

  • Truth says:

    Another example of liberal lunacy. Schultz and the rest of the politicians who echo her views are ignorant criminals illegaly rapping the legal American taxpayers for future generations by adding to the monstrous deficit.
    Brittanicus is dead on with all his points!!!
    No other country in the world rewards individuals for criminal acts, i.e. trespassing on our American soil, then allowing them to remain here expecting the taxpayers to pick up the tab for their free welfare, and now free healthcare, which what the liberal idiots are doing and want to continue doing. Anyone who advocates an open border policy or amnesty for illegal/criminal aliens with a 9.1 unemployment rate is a blind fool. Across the country, local, county, and state budgets are depleted forcing the respective governments into massive spending cuts which include layoffs of legal American workers. At the rate we are going our economic infrastructure will crumble, the dollar will fail, and a recession of massive proprtions will follow.

    I’d rather have 1000 illegal aliens than one Brett Reese mucking about and trying to impose his REICHWING philosophies on Greeley. Fortunately he’ll be off the School Board soon and hopefully off the public airwaves sooner.
