Illegal Immigration Nail in the Coffin for Obama

Kevin Felts political commentator

The flood of illegal immigrants will be the final nail in the coffin for obama. Even the most rabid obama supports are starting the see his true agenda. Obama will go down as the worst president in history. Instead of bringing the nation together, he drove a steel wedge through the heart of America.

Everyday working people are being thrown to the wolves while illegals are flooding this nation and overwhelming resources.

You think the economy is bad now? Just wait until those illegals are granted work visas. Those thousands of illegals crossing the border everyday will start looking for work. It is just a matter of time before human rights groups call on the U.S. government to start granting work visas. We do not expect the tens of thousands of illegals to sign up on welfare do we? If they are here they can work and support themselves, right?

China The New Face Of Global Domination

Lets talk about history for a couple of minutes, then let’s move onto the heart of this article. One of the main reasons Germany was defeated in WW II was the United States and Russia produced more tanks, planes, ships and guns than Germany. We had the resources where Germany did not.

World War II boiled down to numbers. Where Germany could only produce a certain amount of tanks, trucks, planes, and lacked raw materials such as oil and iron deposits, the United States and Russia had no such limitations.

For 35 – 40 years after World War II, or until the late 1970s and early 1980s the United States was the worlds production powerhouse. We made everything from toys to Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. The economy was strong, there was a thriving middle class who could afford to buy a home, buy a car or truck or both, have a family, times were good.

Then along came corporate greed and free trade. Wall street not satisfied with the profits they were making decided to move the factories to China, exploit low wage workers, then close the factories here in the states which as led to the death of the middle class.

Gun Haters Do Not Understand The 2nd Amendment

Everytime there is an incident of gun related violence, it seems the crazies start coming out the woodwork like roaches in a wood pile.

Do gun haters just not understand what the 2nd amendment is about, or are they just stupid?

Lets take this video about an anti-gun rally.

Place the blame where it belongs, on mentally ill people.

Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 people, and did not use a single gun.

Adam Lanza murdered 26 people.

What did Jeffrey Dahmer and Adam Lanza have in common? Both of them were mentally ill.

If we want to make society safe, lets keep mentally ill people locked away from the general public. Whether its a gun, a knife, baseball bat,,,, mentally ill people will find a way to kill others.

True Purpose of the 2nd Amendment

The only gun control we need is gun training

As usual, after a mass shooting the liberals go on a feeding frenzy for more gun control. Since most elected officials know that voting for more gun control would be political suicide, they are going after online ammunition sales.

All of this gun control and ammunition control talk is pure nonsense.

What the government needs to provide is gun training, and less gun control laws.

When this great nation was founded, who found the battles that won the war? It was the civilian volunteers. At the time of the revolutionary war, civilian had access to the same weapons that the British carried.

The war of 1812, who went to New Orleans and fought the British? Once again it was the civilian volunteers that answered the call to protect this nation.

The founding fathers subscribed to the idea that every able bodied male over the age of 18 years was a member of the citizen militia. This citizen militia is what the second amendment is all about.

Free Trade The Great Destroyer

Kevin Felts political commentator

Think free trade is good thing? Think cheap products that were made in china are a good thing?

Think again.

After factories are closed and demolished, the value of the property goes down, this means less tax dollars brought in through school and property taxes. With less property and school taxes brought in from businesses, the tax burden is being shifted to homeowners.

Do you ever wonder why your property taxes are so high? Maybe its related to the businesses shutting down and moving to china. Someone has to pay for the schools, since John Doe and company laid off a few hundred workers and moved to china, “someone” has to pickup the bill.

Trucks bringing supplies to factories buy fuel and other items at local stores.

When the news says a factory is closing, the people do not realize the ripple effect that has through the community.

Free Trade Ripple Effect

What would war with Iran mean

I feel that Iran has positioned itself to be made a victim. Iran is supposed to be developing nuclear power plants for peaceful purposes.

Why would Iran make itself out to be a victim? To rally support, and have other nations come to its aid. Playing the victim is one of the first steps of jihad.

What I fear, if any nation strikes iran, china will jump in to protect its supply of oil.

Manufacturing base and national security

Smoker for SHTFAbout the author: Kevin Felts graduated high school in 1986. After high school, Kevin went to work in a welding shop that built ASME certified pressure vessels. In 1987 Kevin went to work for a company that built AMSE certified heat exchangers. After working 4 years building heat exchangers, Kevin moved from shop to shop, until he went to community college and went into computers. In all, Kevin has around 14 – 15 years experience in the welding field.

Think working in a factory is only for stupid people that can not make it in college? Think free trade is good? Think cheap products from china (or anywhere else) is a good thing?

Think again.

Besides economic stability, a strong manufacturing base can be retooled during times of war.

One of the problems with the USA, Canada,,, and the rest of the world, we have forgotten what its like to be in a “real” war. This war in Iraq is not a war where our cities are being bombed. We do not even have to buy war bonds like people did during WW2.

If the US went to war with someone like Russia or china, we have no steel mills, we have only a couple of ship yards spread out through the country to build ships with, most of our steel is made overseas, most of our welding tools are made overseas. The shipyards from the 1940s and 1950s have been demolished. All that remains in some locations is an open field. There “might” be left-overs from the old ships yards, but they are far and few in between.
