Frosty Wooldridge — The 300 Million-Immigrant Factor Swamping America

June 19, 2014 2 comments

By Frosty Wooldridge

June 19, 2014NewsWithViews.comWith immigration’s continued onslaught prompted by the 1965 Immigration Reform Act jammed through Congress without debate, we added 100 million people to America from 1965 to 2007.

We jumped from 194 million people to 300,000,000 million in 40 years by 2007. That same bill guarantees our country another 100 million immigrants within three decades, that’s 30 years.Yet, our U.S. Senate mob of 100 fools and corporate puppets, supposedly representing our best interests as citizens, passed S744 amnesty bill last April, 2013.

Not only does that bill give amnesty to 20 and possibly 30 million alien migrants, it increases our legal immigration onslaught from 1.1 to 2.0 million immigrants annually.Speaker of the House John Boehner attempts to ram it through his body without a single thought to the long-term consequences. Just like the late Teddy Kennedy with his 1965 fiasco!The final result of that S744 bill eventually guarantees our United States to increase our population from 319 million to 625,000,000 million before this century runs out. It makes us the third fastest growing country on the planet behind China and India.

It means we will double the populations of our 35 most populated cities times three. It guarantees that every citizen will be struggling with endemic poverty, lowered quality of life and diminished standard of living.

Suddenly liberals are comfortable with monarchical war-making powers.






British prime minister David Cameron has recalled Parliament from summer vacation for a special session on Thursday, where there will be “a clear government motion and vote on the United Kingdom’s response to chemical weapons attacks,” Cameron promised on Twitter.

Who is Barack Hussein Obama, the man in the White House? Without a doubt, Obama is the most un vetted, unaccomplished, unqualified person to ever to occupy the Oval Office in American history.


Bill Clinton (in reference to Obama’s inexperience) is reported to have told Ted Kennedy during the 2008 campaign, “A few years ago this guy (Obama) would have been carrying our bags.”


Aside from Obama being completely and totally unqualified to be the leader of the free world do we even know for sure that Obama is mentally stable?




Dr. Sam Vaknin the world’s leading expert on narcissism and the author of “Malignant Self Love ” has said that ” Obama’s language, posture and demeanor and the testimonies of his closest, dearest and nearest suggest that Obama is a narcissist or he may have Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

40 YEARS HENCE: Hillary Rodham FIRED from Watergate


InvestigationEO History syndicated ^ | January 23, 2013 | Dan CalabresePosted on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 12:30:03 PM by Wings-n-Wind


The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

[Emphasis added]Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair.

When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.[Emphasis added]

John F. Kennedy’s Warning… “”The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American’s freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizen of this plight.””

During the U.S. Senate confirmation hearings for attorney general nominee John Ashcroft, Senator Ted Kennedy (D-O’Shea’s Saloon) threw a fit over a perfectly correct statement once made by Ashcroft regarding how the founding fathers advocated the Second Amendment right to bear arms because of their belief that a well-armed citizenry constituted yet another check on governmental tyranny. “What, us, tyrannical?” Kennedy bellowed. He then demanded that Ashcroft “apologize to the American people” for having made such an outrageous statement.

Senator Kennedy is perhaps the most important member of Congress because in incidents like this he reminds Americans of how truly corrupt, tyrannical, deceitful, and rotten to the core the US State has become. To Kennedy, murdering some 80 people, including several dozen children, with poison gas, machine gun fire, and flames in Waco, Texas, because they allegedly violated a minor gun control law (which is unconstitutional, of course) is not an act of tyranny.


An FBI sniper shooting a new mother holding her baby in her arms at her home in Ruby Ridge, Idaho, right between the eyes because her husband allegedly violated a minor gun law is not an act of tyranny.

Frosty Wooldridge — Mass immigration destabilizing America’s Political System

December 12, 2012 28 comments

…..Since 1965, our U.S. Government, led by forever Senator Teddy Kennedy, passed the Immigration Reform Act, which bumped annual immigration from 100,000 to 1.2 to 1.5 million annually from third world countries. As the U.S. filled up with poverty-prone citizens, President Lyndon Baines Johnson passed the Great Society Act that handed out welfare checks, housing, free lunches and food stamps like candy on Halloween to millions of new-comers. Our national debt exceeded $1.1 trillion by the end of his term.

Those Great Society welfare queens churned out babies faster than a Ford assembly line. Each new baby gave the ‘poor’ mother a car payment, new TV, fashionable clothing, dish washer and unlimited credit. One minority woman in Detroit, Michigan, where I worked in the 70s, 80s and 90s, pumped out 24 children with more than a dozen fathers. Her first three girls birthed their own babies by age 15. The woman and her children became the first wave of ‘cyclical welfare’ poverty in America. Score one for the idealistic zeal of democrats!

Inside Mitt’s mind

October 22, 2012 1 comment

Mitt Romney and I went on our Mormon missions exactly the same time. Born in March 1947, we spent a week together — along with 200 other new LDS missionaries — being trained in a converted hotel in downtown Salt Lake Citythat is now the site of the church’s 21,000-seat Conference Center.

Of course, Mitt wouldn’t remember me (we never talked), but he sat right in front of me during most of the training sessions. At the end of the week, I entertained Mitt and the rest of the missionaries with my guitar, as I sang Peter, Paul, and Mary‘s version of “Early Morning Rain” — with the lyrics altered, since it was about fast women and being “cold and drunk” on the outskirts of an airport (things I literally I knew nothing about). It’s one of my favorite songs, which I still sing regularly — altered lyrics and all.

The lesson Obama was sent to teach us (…’08 win was God’s ‘elections have consequences’ message)

The way that people carried on in 2008, you would have thought we had elected a messiah and not merely a president. Some people who felt that way can be excused because that’s the way Obama was sold to us.

After all, he vowed to lower the oceans, heal the planet and unite all Americans, whatever their class, race, gender or nation of origin.


That’s pretty big talk for someone whose singular accomplishment as a member of the Illinois Legislature was to vote in favor of partial-birth abortions, and whose most noteworthy achievement during his two years in Washington was to be named the most liberal member of the Senate, beating out the unholy likes of Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid.

Joe Biden’s gaffes are famous, not just for the self-inflicted foot swallowing that he is most known for, but also for the liberal media’s obvious ignorance and non reporting of those said numerous gaffes. Its just the same as when Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s



crippling polio paralysis was hidden from the American public – as FDR’s staff members would prop him up into a standing position – just to show how able-bodied he was. It was all a charade aided and abetted by the press, which had just as many communist sympathizers then as they do today.

Alias Marx and Alinsky…Family Security Matters

May 14, 2012 1 comment

Calling socialists liberals is as deceptive as calling goose gizzards foie gras. It fools no one but the epistemologically blinkered. The term liberal allows liberals to pose as concerned, generous and forward-thinking individuals and to act under what was once an honorable term for anyone who advocated or endorsed liberty. And as any well-read American knows, liberals do not advocate liberty. Quite the opposite.

The subject here is the devolution of the term liberal, not its evolution.

Even out-and-out communists are called liberals. President Barack Obama is called a “liberal.” The late Senator Ted Kennedy was called a “liberal.” Barney Frank is a liberal. Obama’s cabinet is largely staffed by liberals (unless outed, as self-confessed communist Van Jones was). Communism and socialism still carry a bad reputation, so everyone, including the Main Stream Media, and even well-intentioned pundits and commentators friendly to liberty, use the term liberal.

In World War II’s final moments in Europe, Associated Press correspondent Edward Kennedy gave his news agency perhaps the biggest scoop in its history. He reported, a full day ahead of the competition, that the Germans had surrendered unconditionally at a former schoolhouse in Reims, France.

For this, he was publicly rebuked by the AP, and then quietly fired.

Many of you who read my articles and write me wonderful letters and even take the time to send me gifts have actually become wonderful cyber friends. Because so many of you have requested these articles on the GOP candidates, I’ve had to dredge through their backgrounds and their voting records for documentation. It has not been an easy task, and I’m always relieved when I’m finished with writing about another one of these traitorous leaders. In the previous article on Santorum, the research was on his somewhat hypocritical pro-life stance. In this article we’ll be looking at his voting record and fiscal policies.

…..And, each of his three opponents has Achilles’ heels. Indeed, they all have the same identical weakness. Namely, they are all weather vanes. Each of them, when attacking the other two for “flip-flopping,” are entirely correct.

Indeed, this is one of the rare occasions where I agree with all three of them, when they criticize the other two on this ground. Well, they are all statist warmongers too, but why be critical?

It cannot be denied that Congressman Paul, too, has “weaknesses.” Why, this maniac favors freedom across the board, without fear or favor. He, idiotically, wants to apply the Golden Rule, hold on, wait for it, you had better be sitting down when you read these next few words, to foreigners.

He got booed for saying this in the South Carolina debate by a bunch of chicken hawks, but members of our armed forces support this basic element of Judeo Christianity. So much so that they donate more money to him than to all of his four competitors (I include Obama, here), put together.

I just can’t wait until these soldiers hold their march in favor of Dr. Paul. Stupidly, he wants to End the Fed, HUD, Fannie, Freddie, the sources of our present great prosperity, as everyone in the mainstream media knows full well. He doesn’t think too highly of the Department of Education, which is responsible in part for our present high student scores; he must be against education per se!

What a horrible person he is. Brainlessly, he wants to end our war on drugs, and put these substances on some sort of par with alcohol. Hey, you can’t get any more dim-witted than that. Why, millions of (disproportionately black) innocent prisoners who never engaged in any violent acts would be freed if this jerk had his way. So, yes, he, too, has his weaknesses. But, hopefully, as more and more people hear his views, these will be converted to strengths.

But he also has his strengths, even at present. He is what we call in sports, a “winner.” He has won 12 elections in his congressional district, amongst the voters who know him best. In contrast, in sharp contrast, the other three are “losers.”

Via Fox News Insider, this clip shouldn’t be as gratifying as it is. Surely no one needs Bill Clinton to tell them that the press was neck-deep in the tank for The Unicorn Prince in 2008. But it is gratifying, partly because of the hint of lingering resentment in Clinton’s reaction and partly because of the extra little shadow of illegitimacy it casts on Obama’s victory.

It’s no secret that BJ didn’t think much of O during the campaign — remember this infamous exchange he reportedly had with Ted Kennedy? — but to see him acknowledge this when we’re on the cusp of another campaign where the media will be neck-deep in the tank for Obama is oddly comforting. Forget the bit at the end where he hedges on media bias against the GOP and never mind that, if asked, he would surely say he thinks Obama would have beat Hillary without the press’s help (she did end up winning New Hampshire, after all).

Those are stock answers that any good soldier would offer for his party. The one about Hillary is not, which is what makes it so striking. No one’s under any illusions about the media’s corruption, including the elder statesmen in their favored party.

24 years ago today, Borking was born

October 24, 2011 Leave a comment

24 years ago a new term was coined, “borking” or “to bork.” It is a tactic in which Democrats still revel, except when they feel they are on the receiving end at which point they cry foul.

Borking is the complete politicization of the judicial nomination process, in which bad motives are imputed to purely legal positions. So if a judicial nominee believes that a particular issue is beyond the reach of the federal judiciary and properly for the political process, that nominee will have the worst motives imputed to him or her, including an imputed desire for bad results. Thus, taking the position that there is no federal constituional right for [insert claimed right here] allows people like Ted Kennedy to claim that the nominee wants [insert horrific result here].


The ugliness of borking has effects beyond the judiciary, notes Joe Nocera in The NY Times: I bring up Bork not only because Sunday is a convenient anniversary. His nomination battle is also a reminder that our poisoned politics is not just about Republicans behaving badly, as many Democrats and their liberal allies have convinced themselves. Democrats can be — and have been — every bit as obstructionist, mean-spirited and unfair.

I’ll take it one step further. The Bork fight, in some ways, was the beginning of the end of civil discourse in politics. For years afterward, conservatives seethed at the “systematic demonization” of Bork…. The anger between Democrats and Republicans, the unwillingness to work together, the profound mistrust — the line from Bork to today’s ugly politics is a straight one.

Should Hillary Clinton Challenge Obama in the Primaries?

With a new poll showing that 32 percent of Democrats are eager for President Obama to be challenged by somebody in his own party, is it time for a Democrat to get into the 2012 primary?

Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders said yes recently, though history frowns on challengers. Just ask the late Edward M. Kennedy who failed to knock off Jimmy Carter in 1980 as the former president faced economic troubles and bad polls similar to what Obama is up against.

Al Capone’s son threatened to kill Senator Ted Kennedy weeks after his brother was assassinated

Al Capone’s son threatened to kill Senator Ted Kennedy weeks after his brother was assassinated:

“Previously unseen FBI documents have revealed the son of legendary mobster Al Capone drunkenly threatened to ‘assassinate’ the late Senator Edward Kennedy.

Three weeks after his brother Senator Robert Kennedy was shot dead in Los Angeles, Albert ‘Sonny’ Capone was overheard in a Miami restaurant saying Ted Kennedy might ‘get it too’.

The 1968 threat was revealed in a newly-released part of the former Massachusetts senator’s FBI file, which is almost entirely made up of threats against the youngest Kennedy brother.

It is likely to fuel conspiracy theories that the mob was involved in the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy.

According to the file, a man overheard Capone, 50, make a call from a public phone at the New England Oyster House in Coral Gables, Florida, on June 24, 1968.

At one point in the conversation, witnesses claimed he said: ‘If Edward Kennedy keeps fooling around he was going to get it, too.’

Capone identified himself after asking the operator to bill the call to his home in Palm Island and he ‘appeared intoxicated’, the report states.

Despite being the son of a mob figure Capone – who died in 2004, is thought to have led a law-abiding life, including working as a florist.

How did John McCain beat JD Hayworth? $18 million from his PRESIDENTIAL campaign MCNASTY ALERT

August 28, 2010 1 comment

One of the most disliked, liberal Republicans in the Senate used money from conservatives who can’t stand him to win reelection against the far more conservative candidate.John McCain easily beat JD Hayworth in the Republican primary for Senate this year, but the reason why is disturbing.

The vast majority of the money he spent, $18 million out of a total of almost $24 million, came from contributions to his prior presidential campaign, not this Senate campaign. Many people who contributed to his presidential campaign – including myself – contributed because of Sarah Palin, not McCain. To have our money used against a better conservative candidate we prefer in a different race is despicable. It was even more insulting for me personally since my money was used by McCain’s staffers who proudly refer to themselves as the “McCain Mafia” in vicious personal attacks against me, as Director of Social Media for Hayworth’s campaign. By the end of the campaign, I had blocked almost every one of them on Twitter due to reprehensible behavior that was condoned I believe encouraged by their boss.

In contrast, Hayworth spent only $2.4 million. It was difficult for him to raise money because McCain had already locked in many high-level donors through threats and strong-arming. The McCain Mafia would accost potential contributors by warning them, “The Senator would be very disappointed if you did not contribute the full amount $2,400 in the primary, or $4,800 per couple.”In reality, McCain’s record is terrible. He has an 81% lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union, which dipped to its lowest ever in 2008, 63%, due to voting for the billion dollar pork TARP bailouts. The main bills he has co-sponsored were left-leaningDemocrats: Cap and Trade with Joe Lieberman, amnesty with Ted Kennedy, and an assault on free speech with Russ Feingold. bills with
