America nears el tipping pointo

Ann Coulter lays out Hispanic demographics that should greatly worry GOP


I apologize to America’s young people, whose dashed dreams and dim employment prospects I had laughed at, believing these to be a direct result of their voting for Obama.

On closer examination, it turns out that young voters, aged 18-29, overwhelmingly supported Romney. But only the white ones.

According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent for Obama. That’s the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic – white women under 30 – slightly favored Romney.

Reagan got just 43 percent of young voters in 1980 – and that was when whites were 88 percent of the electorate. Only 58 percent of today’s under-30 vote is white, and it’s shrinking daily.

What the youth vote shows is not that young people are nitwits who deserve lives of misery and joblessness, as I had previously believed, but that America is hitting the tipping point on our immigration policy.

The youth vote is a snapshot of elections to come if nothing is done to reverse the deluge of unskilled immigrants pouring into the country as a result of Ted Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act. Eighty-five percent of legal immigrants since 1968 have come from the Third World. A majority of them are in need of government assistance.

Whites are 76 percent of the electorate over the age of 30 and only 58 percent of the electorate under 30.
Obama won the “youth vote” because it is the knife’s edge of a demographic shift, not because he offered the kids free tuition and contraception (which they don’t need because it’s hard to have sex when you’re living with your parents at 27).

In 1980, Hispanics were only 2 percent of the population, and they tended to be educated, skilled workers who got married, raised their children in two-parent families and sent their kids to college before they, too, got married and had kids (in that order).

That profile has nothing to do with recent Hispanic immigrants, who – because of phony “family reunification” rules – are the poorest of the world’s poor.

More than half of all babies born to Hispanic women today are illegitimate. As Heather MacDonald has shown, the birthrate of Hispanic women is twice that of the rest of the population, and their unwed birthrate is one and a half times that of blacks.

That’s a lot of government dependents coming down the pike. No amount of “reaching out” to the Hispanic community, effective “messaging” or Reagan’s “optimism” is going to turn Mexico’s underclass into Republicans.

Any election analysis that doesn’t deal with the implacable fact of America’s changing demographics is bound to be wrong.

Perhaps the reason elections maven Michael Barone was so shockingly off in his election prediction this year was that, in the biggest mistake of his career, Barone has been assuring us for years that many of these Third World immigrants pouring into the country would go the way of Italian immigrants and become Republicans.

They’re hardworking! They have family values!

Maybe at first, but not after coming here, having illegitimate children and going on welfare.

Charles Murray recently pointed out that – contrary to stereotype – Hispanics are less likely to be married, less likely to go to church, more supportive of gay marriage and less likely to call themselves “conservative” than other Americans.

Rather than being more hardworking than Americans, Hispanics actually work about the same as others, or, in the case of Hispanic women, less.

It seems otherwise, Murray says, because the only Hispanics we see are the ones who are working – in our homes, neighborhoods and businesses. “That’s the way that almost all Anglos in the political chattering class come in contact with Latinos,” he notes. “Of course they look like model Americans.”

(Black males would apparently like to work more. Nearly 20 percent of black males under 30 voted for Romney, more than three times what McCain got.)

An article by Nate Cohn in the current New Republic argues, as the title puts it: “The GOP Has Problems With White Voters, Too.” As proof, Cohn cites Jefferson County, Colo.; Loudoun County, Va.; Wake County, N.C.; and Somerset County, N.J., all of which went Republican in presidential elections from 1968 through 2004, but which Romney lost in 2012.

Smelling a rat, I checked the demographic shifts in these counties from the 2000 to the 2010 census. In each one, there has been a noticeable influx of Hispanics (and Asians, who also vote Democrat), diminishing “the white vote” Cohn claims Republicans are losing.

Between the 2000 and 2010 census, for example, the white population of Jefferson County declined more than 90 percent to less than 80 percent, while the Hispanic population more than doubled, from 6 percent to 14 percent.

In Loudoun County, the Asian population tripled from 5 percent to 15 percent and the Hispanic population doubled from 6 percent to 12 percent. Meanwhile, whites plummeted from 83 percent to 69 percent of the population.

Similarly, Wake County shifted from 74 percent white to 66 percent white in the past decade, while the Hispanic population doubled, from 5 percent to 10 percent, and the black population stayed even at about 20 percent.

In Somerset County, the Hispanic population grew by 63 percent and the Asian population grew by 83 percent since 2000. The number of whites has remained steady, resulting in a population that is now just 62 percent white.

These were the counties chosen by Cohn, not me, to show that Republicans are losing “the white vote.”

Except they’re not so white, anymore. With blacks, Asians and Hispanics voting 93 percent, 73 percent and 71 percent for Obama, Republicans have to do more than just win the white vote. They have to run the table.

Romney got a larger percentage of the white vote than Reagan did in 1980. That’s just not enough anymore.

Ironically, Romney was the first Republican presidential candidate in a long time not conspiring with the elites to make America a dumping ground for the world’s welfare cases. Conservatives who denounced Romney as a “RINO” were the ones doing the bidding of the real establishment: business, which wants cheap labor and couldn’t care less if America ceases to be the land of opportunity that everyone wanted to immigrate to in the first place.
Op-ed:
Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine...I don't think so
By: Diane Sori

Last week's U(seless) N(ations) vote to award the elevated status of 'non-member observer' to the so-called 'Palestinians' has fueled the fire for Israel's destruction by radical islamists the world over.

In fact, after the vote Mahmoud Abbas vowed that the Palestinian Authority flag would fly over 'Jerusalem, eternal capital of the state of Palestine.' A flag flying over a supposed country that doesn't exist, over a city they have NO right too, given to a people who never were and NEVER will be, and all because the U(seless) N(ations) says so.

Add into the mix Obama's funneling of massive amounts of foreign aid (our taxpayer dollars) to the enemies of our stalwart friend and ally, and you have one hell of a knife in the back that sinks in deeper and deeper into the heart of Israel...Jerusalem.

Can you see the real motive behind this vote...I sure can.

And now our ever-lovin' Hillary continues to bloviate that Israel missed opportunities for peace and lacks empathy in ‘understanding the pain of an oppressed people.’

How about the pain of the Israelis who live daily under the danger of Islamic lunatics trying to wipe them off the face of the Earth...guess she forgot that one. And anti-Semitic, muslim loving Hillary also continues to accuse Israel of setting back the chances for peace by continuing to approve construction permits in what she says is the nation’s 'disputed' capital of Jerusalem.

Sorry but there's NOTHING 'disputed' here...Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish homeland of Israel, period.

And herein lies the crux of all the muslim lies, for Jerusalem is NOT mentioned even once in the qur'an NO matter how the muslims try to twist that fact. The muslims base their entire premise that Jerusalem is a muslim city from this one verse, qur'an 17:1, “Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things).” And while islamic tradition tries to claim that 'the farthest mosque' (al-aqsa) is the city of Jerusalem, there is no mention of Jerusalem by name in that verse or in any other qur'anic verses, period.

Therefore, muslims have NO claim to Jerusalem...NO rightly claim at all NO matter what the U(seless) N(ations) decrees or Obama and Hillary push for.

However, Jewish claims to the Holy Land of Israel, and hence it's capital of Jerusalem, rests directly in passages from the Torah in fulfillment of God's promise to them. In Genesis, God promises the Holy Land to Abraham and his descendants. God says: "For all the land which you see, to you will I give it, and to your seed for ever" (Genesis 13:15). This promise is repeated to Abraham's son Isaac: "To you and your descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath which I swore to your father Abraham" (Genesis 26:3).

In 1,000 BC, King David conquered the city from the Jebusites and Jewish sovereignty in the holy city was established with Jerusalem being the focus and spiritual center of the Jewish people. And while Jerusalem has not always been under Jewish control due to it's many conquerors, Jerusalem's centrality to the Jewish religion has NEVER changed for in Jerusalem is where the Holy Temple was built, and Jerusalem is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible 669 times.

669 times in the Hebrew Bible...0 times in the qur'an.

Case closed...Jerusalem is the capital of Israel...always has been and always will be the capital of the Jewish people in their Jewish homeland, and the muslims be damned. Oh, and by the way Hillary...Israel can build whatever they want in the own capital of their own sovereign country. And the muslims, the so-called Palestinians, who are NOTHING but run-of-the-mill Arabs, can go home to Jordan or to any other of their fellow Arab countries that will take them.

And despite mounting international pressure led by Obama and Hillary for a divided Jerusalem now that the U(seless) N(ations) has said the so-called Palestinians have a homeland, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu issued a strong statement saying Jerusalem would "continue to stand up for its vital interests even in the face of international pressure."

And that is something Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Hillary Clinton can take to the bank, for Benjamin Netanyahu's words concerning Jerusalem will NEVER waver NO matter what pressures are put upon him...nor should they ever have to.
