HILLARY CLINTON'S IGNORANCE OF GAZA'S GEOGRAPHY

The former secretary of state describes the Gaza Strip as one giant metropolis.

By R. James Towe  james@sollicitus.us

Although densely populated, much of the Gaza Strip is uninhabited.
 "Hamas puts its missiles, its rockets in civilian areas; part of it is because Gaza is pretty small and its densely populated."
                 -Hillary Clinton 


During interviews, Hillary Clinton inevitably provides the audience a history lesson to convince us that she is intelligent and capable. 

Unfortunately, she usually leaves it at that: a history lesson with solutions few and far between. 

In a recent interview, the former secretary of state gave a lecture on geography. Mrs. Clinton appeared to excuse Hamas for storing munitions in densely populated Gaza City. Schools, mosques, and United Nations shelters been the victims of a Hamas campaign that ignores the safety of those it supposedly is fighting to liberate. 

Mrs. Clinton, a MENSA member, enlightened us with her description of Gaza as a densely populated area. This evidently justified Hamas' use of vulnerable civilian facilities to carry out its terror campaign against Israel.

The confusion in her description is that Gaza City is indeed a very densely populated environment. The whole of Gaza is not. Gaza has tens of thousands of acres of uninhabited land from which Hamas could carry out its campaign if the organization had the slightest regard for its people. 

How could a former secretary of state show such little understanding of one of the planet's most volatile regions?

IMMIGRATION REFORM ADVOCATES ARE WOLVES IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING

The sinister reality behind immigration reformers. 

By R. James Towe  james@sollicitus.us


Americans should be leery of those voices advocating immigration reform as a solution to the barrage of illegal migrants crossing our southern border. 

Two motives exist within the same camp. The first comprises of ethnocentric Latinos who are cheerleaders for illegal migration, not because they are humanitarian, but because of their own ethnic biases. These immigrant 'advocates' resent the Establishment and its stronghold on the nation's cultural and monetary apparatus. They believe the increased Latino population will result in more influence; eventually becoming demographically and politically dominant. 

Everyone is an American to Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
The second group comprises of Leftists wanting to eliminate national borders and build a truly 'diverse' society. They may feel American imperialism is, at least in part, responsible for the plight of these unfortunate people looking for a better life.



LET'S BE REASONABLE, FOLKS!

Mr. 'Common Sense',  Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL)
Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) offers himself with a smile and a plan that, darn it, should make sense to clear thinking people. He campaigns the cause around the reality of crime, poverty and burden brought my mass migration. Mr. Gutierrez reinforces his arguments with peripheral matters, including cheap labor and breaking up families. Heartstrings 101.

The disingenuous nature of the immigration reform crowd is made transparent by its unwillingness to ensure border security before amnesty is discussed. Simply offering money and 'resources' for border enforcement within an amnesty bill is not convincing to the majority of Americans. Firstly, the public is insisting that the border be secured.

Americans are not aloof to the true intentions of Washington's power brokers. No amnesty bill can be considered without reclaiming our sovereignty and ignoring the special interests that threaten the health of America's future .
