2 Petitions & a Boycott—Remove $105 billion for nationalized healthcare, No citizenship for illegal immigrants, boycott Sanctuary Cities

I received the following e-mails yesterday. The first one has already occurred but will occur again so I’m posting it along with the others.



On Wednesday the House votes on whether to do another short-term continuing resolution (CR). (It passed!—my addition) This CR currently contains no provision to cut spending on the health care bill endorsed by the President. (Nor did it remove funds for Planned MURDERHOOD!—my addition) There is approx. $105 billion identified in that bill that will fund over 150 new agencies. (Agencies for the nationalized healthcare fiasco!—my addition) However, cutting this funding would require waiving a House rule that doesn’t allow such an amendment on a CR.

So I ask you an important poll question. Please go to my website and register your preference.

“Do you favor Congress waiving its own rule that would allow us to add an amendment that would eliminate up to $105 billion of advanced funding for the government takeover of health care even if this amendment may not pass the Senate and could result in a government shutdown?”

I remain committed to continue to work aggressively in Congress to repeal what I firmly believe to be an onerous and unconstitutional health care reform law and support market-based solutions to our health care needs.

(Even though the Continuing Resolution passed, I still recommend going here and voicing your opposition to the spending of this money. If this Continuing Resolution also passes in the Senate, this issue will be back in three weeks. If it doesn‘t pass in the Senate, it will be back almost immediately.)

“Texas Mulls AZ-Style Illegal Immigration Law

Former Houston police officer Rick Salter, who was shot in the face by an illegal immigrant in 2009, and who speaks through paralyzed vocal chords, was among those urging Texas lawmakers to pass House Bill 12 this past week. Under this compromise plan working its way through the Texas Legislature, state and local police officers would be allowed—but not required unlike AZ’s SB 1070—to help enforce federal immigration laws. This legislation would help police identity illegal immigrants who commit crimes in Texas and also nix ‘sanctuary cities’ by prohibiting policies that keep police and criminal investigators from providing immigration enforcement assistance. Opponents argue that it would lead to racial profiling (which is nonsense!—my addition), detract from ‘real’ police work (Protection of the citizens of the State of Texas IS REAL police work!—my addition) and give license to rogue agents who want to harass immigrants.

According to the Pew Hispanic Center in Washington, DC, an estimated 1.6 million illegal immigrants live in Texas—that’s roughly 1/11 of the entire illegal immigration population in the United States!”



Minuteman PAC Border Security Pledge

Whereas, the invasion of America by 20 million illegal aliens imperils our national security, undermines our national sovereignty, and threatens to bankrupt our nation; and

Whereas, the so-called ‘path to citizenship’ Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act and the DREAM Act were nothing more than amnesty bills that will reward 20 million lawbreakers with all the benefits of U.S. citizenship and must not be reintroduced in the 112th Congress; and

Whereas, public opinion polls show that a huge majority of Americans oppose illegal alien amnesty, but the U.S. Senate insists on advancing legislation that most American citizens and taxpayers overwhelmingly reject; and

Whereas, the U.S. Congress has so far failed to respond to the illegal alien invasion with any kind of effective crackdown on the chaotic and violent lawlessness at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Therefore, I, the undersigned American citizen, pledge to vote in the future against any candidate for the House or Senate who supports, in any guise, illegal alien amnesty or who fails to enforce the ‘Secure Fence Act’ of 2008 and other emergency measures to secure our borders NOW.”

“Sanctuary Cities: Dangerous & Deadly

In our efforts to promote American security and sovereignty, Minuteman PAC has specifically identified and verified a number of U.S. cities whose city governments continue to refuse enforcement of federal immigration laws. Instead these cities, through their indifference or even outright intentional harboring of illegal aliens, have thumbed their noses at federal laws in the face of our growing vulnerability to domestic terror attacks.

In a post-9-11 world, this indolence toward enforcing federal law and ensuring domestic security is unforgivable.

Therefore, we call on all freedom-loving American patriots to boycott—whether through business or travel—the following U.S. cities:

Anchorage, AK
Fairbanks, AK
Fresno, CA
Los Angeles, CA
National City, CA4
San Diego, CA
San Francisco, CA
Sonoma County, CA
Evanston, IL
Chicago, IL3
Cicero, IL
Cambridge, MA
Orleans, MA
Portland, ME
Baltimore, MD
Takoma Park, MD
Ann Arbor, MI
Detroit, MI
Minneapolis, MN
Newark, NJ1
Trenton, NJ1
Durham, NC
Albuquerque, NM
Aztec, NM
Rio Arriba, County, NM
Santa Fe, NM
New York, NY
Ashland, OR
Gaston, OR
Marion County, OR
Austin, TX
Houston, TX
Katy, TX
Virginia Beach, VA
Seattle, WA
Madison, WI
