Stunning: California Couple

RUSH: This is Ann and Ed in Southern California. Welcome. It´s great to have you on the phone. Hello. ANN: Hello. RUSH: Hi. ANN: Hi, Rush. How are you? RUSH: Just fine. Thank you very much. ANN: Great. Well, we have some interesting news. My husband Eddie is on the phone with us. We live in Southern California, and we´re Catholic, active Catholics in our community, and there was a town hall meeting last evening, emergency meeting called by our local parish priest, ordered by our bishop (unintelligible) and the Archdiocese of San Bernardino. They have made the decision that they´re going to absorb the

This was indeed a stunning phone call. It is unbelievable that the regime called the Bishop´s office and told them to house these illegals encouraging people to take them into their homes. There´s no way I would take lice ridden, diseased people into my home! The caller´s husband is a doctor and is terrified of what they may be bringing to our country. It is one of the most shocking calls I have heard on Rush´s show.

I think every Democratic voter should be forced to take in 1/2 dozen of these third world urchins. After all, it is such a great idea to have them in the US.

A couple of thoughts on this:

1) The Catholic Church has long been in favor of "looking the other way" with respect to illegal immigrants. (And I say that as a life-long and practicing Catholic).

2) They´re asking parishioners to house/clothe/feed these illegal immigrants "for up to a month". But what then? Where do they go?

3) If you drive I-15 South from Nevada into Southern California, there´s an agricultural checkpoint at / near the state line. I find it terribly ironic that the state of California (via the USDA - e.g., the federal government) are more concerned with a fruit fly than with all the various diseases that are being brought in via this swarm of illegal immigrants.

So the caliphate now turns to the Roman Catholic Church for assistance in its time of need? Gives a whole new meaning to the term, "Church of Convenience."

And 30 days? Just what are parishioners like the Ann and Ed expected to do when 30, 45, 60 days pass and STILL no one from ICE or HHS is answering the phone?

What next? The Third Amendment is hardly ever mentioned or even remembered, but if "Soldier" is changed to "illegal alien," "gang member," or "foreign invader" being quartered in our residences, that´s what this endlessly corrupt Regime is seeking. As to whether the present is a time of peace or war, that´s a matter of opinion. Considering the expansively coercive attitudes of our wayward rulers toward us, the latter makes more sense.

#3, the annual Bishop´s Appeal lists so many charitable outreach activities to aliens it seems as if that´s all they´re collecting for.

Why should the Church and its members do anything to aid this administration after the way it has treated the Church, and people of good will of all Judeo-Christian faiths?

Well, it´s not government asking people to take in the illegals, is it. A church can ask members if they wish and as long as it is voluntary, no violation of the 3rd Amendment. (No doubt a violation of immigration laws, though.) This is how the Catholic Church has always seen its role, and while I would advise anyone against risking the health and safety of their own families, I am not at all surprised that the church has taken this position. As they truly believe this is what Christ would have them do, they are consistent in their actions. Non-Catholics (like me) should understand that we largely agree with Catholics about many, many topics, but the death penalty and immigration are two areas where many conservatives will disagree with the Catholic Church.

I believe it´s a matter for civil litigation and not law enforcement. Are they tenants? Squatters? What are their rights once they´re through the door?

Two things even more stunning are that the Bishop agreed and asked his congregation to accept some children and this couple agreed to do it. If they don´t withdraw their assent they will have these children forever and be putting them through college.

Of course, all the people coming are Catholics. Maybe the Bishop sees advantage to more Catholics. This was urged on French Canadians in Canada where the church urged them to have children to outnumber the oter Canadians.

I too heard the phone call on Rush´s show today. It is beyond the pale for the government of the United States to call Catholic Bishops who then insist that their parishioners take these immigrants into their own homes. As if that were not bad enough, they are then asked not to speak to any media people about it.

These immigrants are then fanned out across the entire country carrying God knows what kinds of plagues. This is beginning to look positively biblical.

When you combine this apocalyptic immigrant story, (with sole credit going directly to Barack Obama) with the accelerated war that is going on in Israel as we speak, it is getting downright scary at this point.

Catholics circumvented immigration law by giving refuge to the illegal aliens. Members became accomplice to the crime by supporting and aiding the church. What is America doing? Asking its citizen to commit a crime at the risk of exposing themselves to foreign diseases? This is Twilight Zone. Imagine, Catholic church asking its congregations to commit a crime, to sin, to willfully break the law of the land. ....america is lost.

#16 - A sin is an offense against the law of God, not the state.

If an offense against the state were a sin - then that would mean the state has established a religion and that in itself is against the Constitution.

Now - if I obeyed the law such as HHS mandates - that would be a sin!

Six or so years ago I´d listen to about 30 minutes of crazy Alex Jones out of Austin while I was driving back roads on Sundays. He was telling people these FEMA camps were being formed back then -- that things were being set up - but for what? An emergency, yes - but what emergency? And have any of them been used??

And why aren´t they being used now? Will people who are protesting the buses be taken there? All of this is crazy.

Who is screening these people they are taking in? They can be gang members, murders, criminals and all kinds of things. I would never agree to that. I think it is very odd that 70% of the people at the church meeting said they would do it. If this actually happens, there will be some real horror stories that come out this kind of thing, truly bad things will happen to some people.

Maybe the Bishop and parishioners need to know:
Immigration law, 8 US Code 1324 states that it is a crime to, either knowingly or recklessly, “conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, or attempt to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection… transport, or move or attempt to transport or move” or to even “encourage or induce” an illegal alien “to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowingly or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.” It is not only a crime to actually commit these offenses, but it is a crime to even attempt to do so. Anyone found guilty of violating 8 US Code 1324 is subject to fines, prison or both.

I know Christ said that He came to divide and not unite and I cannot think of a better example to illustrate that than what is happening today to my Catholic Church.

That being said, tomorrow I am going to call my priest and ask what my parish is doing concerning these "immigrants" and see if his response is similar to California.

In the meantime, I will not give one thin dime to them, but to organizations I know are on our side. Wow, we are living in interesting times!

From a legal point of view one must refuse if asked to house aliens. There are too many cases of squatters being accorded ´rights´ that they have no reason to have. Leftist ambulance chasers will judge shop until they find one that will sign eviction papers for removing YOU, not your house ´guests´, you from your home.

Be polite. Don´t threaten someone, the Feds, or Zero himself no matter how you feel about this whole situation. Remember you may be being recorded (remember the NSA?). Just say "NO."

Also be sure that your neighbors know that if someone in your home gets sick because your neighbor hosts a horde of illegals, you expect him to pay for your care and possibly will bring legal charges against him.

Sound cold? Maybe so but IMO our citizens must draw the line somewhere. So it´s Tuff tacos, Pancho. You should have stayed home and worked to improve your own backyard.

Yes there will be legal consequences. The problem is that we have a lawless administration. The constitution and "laws" mean nothing unless the government needs to enforce something to keep you, the working tax paying citizen, from getting in their way.
There will eventually be an executive order that requires American families to "house" the illegals who the government already refers to as "refugees". Doesn´t matter what the constitution says. Things are escalating around the world.

Stand your ground and have the courage of your convictions.

I don´t see a problem with government asking the churches to pitch in and help out. I didn´t see the problem when W suggested it, I don´t see a problem now. Everyone is still free to say no.
And while I see taking in the poor and the stranger as a Christian duty and blessing I don´t think it applies to aiding and abetting crimes. I also do not see aiding and abetting the government in perpetuating a crime as a Christian duty. Moreover, to the extent they are helping to spread disease, I do not see a Christian duty. Finally, I do not see a Christian duty in subverting the laws of the US that result in a burden upon fellow Americans.
I might see things differently if the poor did not have a home. But they do and they can go back to it. This is simply helping people break the law to gain something they are not entitled to have. They are helping these people steal from fellow Americans. That is not a Christian duty.

It is no surprise to see the Catholic Church taking that position. It can if it wants.

But the individual should be careful. All sorts of legal woes may arise from offering strangers a place in your home. And no Bishop can exempt you from those.

The RC church has cathedrals and parish halls and schools and camps and retreats. I would tell the Bishop to contact me again when those all overflow.

Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen.

But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said. Obama, who reiterated the fact

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
