Alabama's Fight To The Championship

Coach Nick Saban has his work cut out for him and so do the players of the Crimson Tide football team. As they fight their way down the road toward a championship their biggest obstacle may not be the teams they face, but the very subjective so-called ranking system. Without a playoff system the rightful winner of the Championship may not ever make it there. A biased ranking system has bitten Alabama in the past, I pray the Coach Saban and the determination of the Tide is enough repellent to get them there this year.

Republican Momentum In Wisconsin

CQ has moved the Wisconsin senate race from toss up to leans Republican. They also moved the WI 8th congressional district from toss up to leans Republican. Both these races should have been changed sooner. I continue to believe the pollsters and political pundits are relying on outdated data from the past several elections.

The Tea Party has changed a lot of the electorate. Many former Democrats will now be voting Republican. Because of this I think there will be a lot of surprises on election day. I still believe we will pick up 86 House seats, 13 Senate seats, and we will control at least 33 governorships.

I could be wrong, but I don't think I am. However, we actually have to show up and vote; take nothing for granted.

Exciting New Discovery On The Moon

NASA has discovered significant amounts of water on the moon radically changing what most of us were taught as children. With this find the possibility of long term manned presence on the moon seems all the more possible. But, first our manned space flight program will have to survive Barack Obama's resistance to manned flight and the liberal culture of NASA, which is more concerned with so-called man-made global warming then reaching for the stars.

Germany and the Failure of Multiculturalism

Germany and the Failure of Multiculturalism is republished with permission of STRATFOR.

By George Friedman

German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared at an Oct. 16 meeting of young members of her party, the Christian Democratic Union, that multiculturalism, or Multikulti, as the Germans put it, “has failed totally.” Horst Seehofer, minister-president of Bavaria and the chairman of a sister party to the Christian Democrats, said at the same meeting that the two parties were “committed to a dominant German culture and opposed to a multicultural one.” Merkel also said that the flood of immigrants is holding back the German economy, although Germany does need more highly trained specialists, as opposed to the laborers who have sought economic advantages in Germany.

The statements were striking in their bluntness and their willingness to speak of a dominant German culture, a concept that for obvious reasons Germans have been sensitive about asserting since World War II. The statement should be taken with utmost seriousness and considered for its social and geopolitical implications. It should also be considered in the broader context of Europe’s response to immigration, not to Germany’s response alone.

The Origins of the German Immigration Question

Let’s begin with the origins of the problem. Post-World War II Germany faced a severe labor shortage for two reasons: a labor pool depleted by the devastating war — and by Soviet prisoner-of-war camps — and the economic miracle that began on the back of revived industry in the 1950s. Initially, Germany was able to compensate by admitting ethnic Germans fleeing Central Europe and Communist East Germany. But the influx only helped assuage the population loss from World War II. Germany needed more labor to feed its burgeoning export-based industry, and in particular more unskilled laborers for manufacturing, construction and other industries.

To resolve the continuing labor shortage, Germany turned to a series of successive labor recruitment deals, first with Italy (1955). After labor from Italy dried up due to Italy’s own burgeoning economy, Germany turned to Spain (1960), Greece (1960), Turkey (1961) and then Yugoslavia (1968). Labor recruitment led to a massive influx of “Gastarbeiter,” German for “guest workers,” into German society. The Germans did not see this as something that would change German society: They regarded the migrants as temporary labor, not as immigrants in any sense. As the term implied, the workers were guests and would return to their countries of origin when they were no longer needed (many Spaniards, Italians and Portuguese did just this). This did not particularly trouble the Germans, who were primarily interested in labor.

The Germans simply didn’t expect this to be a long-term issue. They did not consider how to assimilate these migrants, a topic that rarely came up in policy discussions. Meanwhile, the presence of migrant labor allowed millions of Germans to move from unskilled labor to white-collar jobs during the 1960s.

An economic slowdown in 1966 and full-on recession following the oil shock of 1973 changed labor conditions in Germany. Germany no longer needed a steady stream of unskilled labor and actually found itself facing mounting unemployment among migrants already in country, leading to the “Anwerbestopp,” German for “labor recruitment stop,” in 1973.

Nonetheless, the halt in migration did not resolve the fact that guest workers already were in Germany in great numbers, migrants who now wanted to bring in family members. The 1970s saw most migration switch to “family reunions” and, when the German government moved to close that loophole, asylum. As the Italians, Spanish and Portuguese returned home to tend to their countries’ own successive economic miracles, Muslim Turks became the overwhelming majority of migrants in Germany — particularly as asylum seekers flocked into Germany, most of whom were not fleeing any real government retribution. It did not help that Germany had particularly open asylum laws in large part due to guilt over the Holocaust, a loophole Turkish migrants exploited en masse following the 1980 coup d’etat in Turkey.

As the migrants transformed from a temporary exigency to a multigenerational community, the Germans had to confront the problem. At base, they did not want the migrants to become part of Germany. But if they were to remain in the country, Berlin wanted to make sure the migrants became loyal to Germany. The onus on assimilating migrants into the larger society increased as Muslim discontent rocked Europe in the 1980s. The solution Germans finally agreed upon in the mid-to-late 1980s was multiculturalism, a liberal and humane concept that offered migrants a grand bargain: Retain your culture but pledge loyalty to the state.

In this concept, Turkish immigrants, for example, would not be expected to assimilate into German culture. Rather, they would retain their own culture, including language and religion, and that culture would coexist with German culture. Thus, there would be a large number of foreigners, many of whom could not speak German and by definition did not share German and European values.

While respecting diversity, the policy seemed to amount to buying migrant loyalty. The deeper explanation was that the Germans did not want, and did not know how, to assimilate culturally, linguistically, religiously and morally diverse people. Multiculturalism did not so much represent respect for diversity as much as a way to escape the question of what it meant to be German and what pathways foreigners would follow to become Germans.

Two Notions of Nation

This goes back to the European notion of the nation, which is substantially different from the American notion. For most of its history, the United States thought of itself as a nation of immigrants, but with a core culture that immigrants would have to accept in a well-known multicultural process. Anyone could become an American, so long as they accepted the language and dominant culture of the nation. This left a lot of room for uniqueness, but some values had to be shared. Citizenship became a legal concept. It required a process, an oath and shared values. Nationality could be acquired; it had a price.

To be French, Polish or Greek meant not only that you learned their respective language or adopted their values — it meant that you were French, Polish or Greek because your parents were, as were their parents. It meant a shared history of suffering and triumph. One couldn’t acquire that.

For the Europeans, multiculturalism was not the liberal and humane respect for other cultures that it pretended to be. It was a way to deal with the reality that a large pool of migrants had been invited as workers into the country. The offer of multiculturalism was a grand bargain meant to lock in migrant loyalty in exchange for allowing them to keep their culture — and to protect European culture from foreign influences by sequestering the immigrants. The Germans tried to have their workers and a German identity simultaneously. It didn’t work.

Multiculturalism resulted in the permanent alienation of the immigrants. Having been told to keep their own identity, they did not have a shared interest in the fate of Germany. They identified with the country they came from much more than with Germany. Turkey was home. Germany was a convenience. It followed that their primary loyalty was to their home and not to Germany. The idea that a commitment to one’s homeland culture was compatible with a political loyalty to the nation one lived in was simplistic. Things don’t work that way. As a result, Germany did not simply have an alien mass in its midst: Given the state of affairs between the Islamic world and the West, at least some Muslim immigrants were engaged in potential terrorism.

Multiculturalism is profoundly divisive, particularly in countries that define the nation in European terms, e.g., through nationality. What is fascinating is that the German chancellor has chosen to become the most aggressive major European leader to speak out against multiculturalism. Her reasons, political and social, are obvious. But it must also be remembered that this is Germany, which previously addressed the problem of the German nation via the Holocaust. In the 65 years since the end of World War II, the Germans have been extraordinarily careful to avoid discussions of this issue, and German leaders have not wanted to say things such as being committed to a dominant German culture. We therefore need to look at the failure of multiculturalism in Germany in another sense, namely, with regard to what is happening in Germany.

Simply put, Germany is returning to history. It has spent the past 65 years desperately trying not to confront the question of national identity, the rights of minorities in Germany and the exercise of German self-interest. The Germans have embedded themselves in multinational groupings like the European Union and NATO to try to avoid a discussion of a simple and profound concept: nationalism. Given what they did last time the matter came up, they are to be congratulated for their exercise of decent silence. But that silence is now over.

The Re-emergence of German Nation Awareness

Two things have forced the re-emergence of German national awareness. The first, of course, is the immediate issue — a large and indigestible mass of Turkish and other Muslim workers. The second is the state of the multinational organizations to which Germany tried to confine itself. NATO, a military alliance consisting mainly of countries lacking militaries worth noting, is moribund. The second is the state of the European Union. After the Greek and related economic crises, the certainties about a united Europe have frayed. Germany now sees itself as shaping EU institutions so as not to be forced into being the European Union’s ultimate financial guarantor. And this compels Germany to think about Germany beyond its relations with Europe.

It is impossible for Germany to reconsider its position on multiculturalism without, at the same time, validating the principle of the German nation. Once the principle of the nation exists, so does the idea of a national interest. Once the national interest exists, Germany exists in the context of the European Union only as what Goethe termed an “elective affinity.” What was a certainty amid the Cold War now becomes an option. And if Europe becomes an option for Germany, then not only has Germany re-entered history, but given that Germany is the leading European power, the history of Europe begins anew again.

This isn’t to say that Germany must follow any particular foreign policy given its new official view on multiculturalism; it can choose many paths. But an attack on multiculturalism is simultaneously an affirmation of German national identity. You can’t have the first without the second. And once that happens, many things become possible.

Consider that Merkel made clear that Germany needed 400,000 trained specialists. Consider also that Germany badly needs workers of all sorts who are not Muslims living in Germany, particularly in view of Germany’s demographic problems. If Germany can’t import workers for social reasons, it can export factories, call centers, medical analysis and IT support desks. Not far to the east is Russia, which has a demographic crisis of its own but nonetheless has spare labor capacity due to its reliance on purely extractive natural resources for its economy. Germany already depends on Russian energy. If it comes to rely on Russian workers, and in turn Russia comes to rely on German investment, then the map of Europe could be redrawn once again and European history restarted at an even greater pace.

Merkel’s statement is therefore of enormous importance on two levels. First, she has said aloud what many leaders already know, which is that multiculturalism can become a national catastrophe. Second, in stating this, she sets in motion other processes that could have a profound impact on not only Germany and Europe but also the global balance of power. It is not clear at this time what her intention is, which may well be to boost her center-right coalition government’s abysmal popularity. But the process that has begun is neither easily contained nor neatly managed. All of Europe, indeed, much of the world, is coping with the struggle between cultures within their borders. But the Germans are different, historically and geographically. When they begin thinking these thoughts, the stakes go up.

A Great Week For John Raese

All the momentum is obviously on John Raese's side in the West Virginia Senate race. The latest Rasmussen poll has Raese leading by 7. He also picked up two huge endorsements this week. The first from Charleston Daily Mail. The second from the Senate Conservative Fund who put out this press release:

SCF Endorses John Raese in West Virginia
Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Greenville, SC — Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, chairman of the
Senate Conservatives Fund, announced the endorsement of businessman John Raese
for U.S. Senate in West Virginia.

"John Raese is a principled
conservative who will fight to stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt
that are bankrupting our country," said Senator DeMint. "He understands the
stimulus bill was a failure, he will fight to repeal the health care takeover,
he opposes earmarks, and he will help us stop the cap-and-trade energy tax that
threatens to kill thousands of American jobs.

"John is businessman who
won't put up with business as usual in Washington. He's running to join the
fight for our nation's freedoms, not to join the Senate club. That's exactly the
kind of leader people in West Virginia and all across America want in
Washington. John is in a tight race but he can win if Americans help him turn
out the vote. If he's elected, he will help us take our country back."

An October 12 Rasmussen Reports survey shows John Raese with a 3 point
lead over Democrat Governor Joe Manchin.

The Senate Conservatives Fund
is a political action committee dedicated to helping elected principled leaders
to the United States Senate. In addition to Ron Johnson, SCF has endorsed Pat
Toomey in Pennsylvania, Marco Rubio in Florida, Rand Paul in Kentucky, Ken Buck
in Colorado, Mike Lee in Utah, Sharron Angle in Nevada, Joe Miller in Alaska,
and Christine O'Donnell in Delaware.

He also clearly won this week's debate expertly stating his positions, which are clearly based on long standing principles and not just some campaign gimmick. Here is the debate; well worth the watch as true conservative principles are on display.

Time To Get Government Out Of The Way

I don't know about you, but it seems like government is everywhere. There is not a single industry they cannot cripple through ridiculous regulations and burdensome tax laws. Next time you are having an argument with a Democrat supporter you should use the facts from this article "Top 10 ways government kills jobs in America" by Arthur Brooks. This November let's get the government out of the way.

Kelley Paul Responds

A classy response to the viscous and pathetic attacks by Rand's opponent. Rand is blessed to have such a supportive wife. I hope they enjoy their anniversary.

The Realignment

Earlier today I wrote on women turning against the Democrat Party, something that has to terrify them to their very core. Well, today Tammy Bruce has penned an excellent article that goes into great detail why we are seeing this happen. Well worth the time.

Ron Johnson Ad: Penny Pincher

Louisiana Families Suffering Under Democrat Rule

The other day SR posted on 1 in 8 Wisconsinites receiving food stamps and I can tell you the state is suffering, however Louisiana is suffering worse; 1 in 5 Louisianians is receiving food stamps. Unfortunately, we are learning what many around the world have already learned, socialism destroys prosperity and freedom. I wish I could just blame Obama, but Clinton and Bush started us on this big-government march. Obama is just far more extreme and in-your-face about it. We can start changing things this election. Let's turn out in mass and give them an election they will never forget.

Women Abandoning The Democrat Party

Mainstream media has finally realized that women are abandoning the Democrat Party and their extremist agenda. If women permanently realign the Democrat Party would be finished as a major Party. They have taken women voters for granted and pushed through an extremist agenda putting all of our children's futures at risk. Now they will have to answer at the ballot box for their failed policies.

Ron Johnson Ad: 14 Trillion

A Challenge

I have a challenge to the readers of this blog. A question, be it, about common sense. I challenge you to try and tell me why is it that minorities and the financially challenged would sell out their own race and their very soul to the liberal progressive agenda? Wait, there is more.

Being a Hispanic woman I wonder why so many women and minorities support the very liberal agenda that targets them and their heritage for extermination through abortion (Margaret Sanger admittedly championed the abortion and birth control movement to weed out the African American, the mentally and physically challenged, and the financially challenged sectors of our society), destruction of the traditional family unit, the dismemberment and disempowerment of the woman's role in the family unit, and the removal of God and all moral restraint that would naturally protect their human rights?

It is the liberal progressives who would enslave everyone of us to a socialist society that would rob us of everything that makes us human and free; everything that makes us American. So why is it that those who would be crushed under the feet of the elitist sector (who would profit from socialism), women and minorities, continue tovote for those who would make them slaves to socialism? Can anyone explain why so many people cannot see what our liberal government is doing to them?

Catholic League News Release

October 18, 2010


Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on news reports that the Vatican has endorsed the TV show, "The Simpsons":

"Vatican Claims Homer is Catholic" reads the headline on the website of National Public Radio. The headline is false: the Vatican never made any such pronouncement. What happened is that one priest, Father Francesco Occhetta, commented favorably about the "The Simpsons" in a semi-official Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano. News stories say he examined an episode from 2005, "The Father, the Son and the Holy Guest Star."

The average viewer will find much to praise about "The Simpsons," and that includes—most of the time—the Catholic League. However, there were two episodes in 1999 that we thought crossed the line, and last year at this time we objected to a Halloween episode that mocked the Eucharist. Last January, I appeared in the "The Simpsons' 20th Anniversary Special" discussing my misgivings about these shows.

Three complaints by the Catholic League over 20 years does not pit us as the enemy of "The Simpsons," but it is important to recognize that bestowing bouquets on any show that has been around for two decades poses certain risks. So is Homer Catholic? If so, we missed his conversion.

Illegal Immigrants To Become Voters to Establish Progressive Rule In America

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms.

Catholic League News Release

October 18, 2010


German Chancellor Angela Merkel has declared multiculturalism to be a failure and is beckoning her nation to repair to its Christian roots. Catholic League president Bill Donohue supports her:

At the beginning of the new millennium, there was a consensus in Europe on the virtues of multiculturalism. Attendant to this view was a profound reluctance to acknowledge Europe's Christian heritage. Midway through the decade, there were signs that things were changing. In 2006, after meeting with Pope Benedict XVI, German Chancellor Angela Merkel made the case for "Christian values" in the European Union Constitution. Now her criticism of multiculturalism is causing an international stir.

The problem with multiculturalism, as the pope understands, is that it breeds contempt for the moral truths that undergird the Judeo-Christian ethos of Western civilization. Indeed, as the pope has said, it has led to "a peculiar Western self-hatred that is nothing short of pathological."

One major reason why multiculturalism is a failure is its implicit moral relativism: all religions and cultures are seen as equals. But this means that those who adhere to Judeo-Christian values, and those who espouse a preference for Sharia law, are voicing a similar perspective. This is worse than nonsense: the former yields liberty and justice; the latter yields slavery.

Chancellor Merkel deserves our support. Her courageous stand is worthy of emulation in the United States.

No Politics-As-Usual For Rand Paul

Another reason why I like Rand Paul is he refuses to play the game. One of my pet peeves is when our talking heads or politicians sit up there and call everyone friend. How can you be friends with someone who viciously attacks you relentlessly? How about a little honesty in politics?

Rand Paul's religious beliefs have been attacked by his opponent. Rather than just going with the flow Rand stood up to this kind of slimy political attack and even refused to shake his opponents hand after their latest debate. The honesty and intestinal fortitude is impressive. Something that is often missing in politics.

This shows me that when he goes to DC Rand will have no problem standing up and fighting for what he knows is right. He has already shown he is willing to do it during an election when most politicians are most guarded.

Two More Endorsements For State Senate

If we are to turn this state back to prosperity, we have to win the governor race and take back the state assembly and senate. With that in mind, I am announcing endorsements for the following state senate candidates Dane Deutsch for Wisconsin State Senate 25th District and Leah Vukmir for Wisconsin State Senate 5th District. We have to have real conservatives or it will do us no good to reclaim our government. Let's not waste this opportunity; we have to support our candidates. Don't let any of your family or friends stay home and not vote.

Wisconsin: 1 In 8 People On Food Stamps

A truly sobering example of a sinking economy and an over reaching government under the Obama administration is that 1 in 8 people in Wisconsin are now on food stamps. That number is staggering and as this article points out should gain the attention of elected officials and motivate them to make the changes needed to bring jobs back to our state. This includes creating a business friendly environment of capitalism with tax breaks for those providing jobs to Wisconsinites.
