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

Comments:
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.

Any CA LDotters have some wisdom about what might happen if these charitible Californians ask their "guests" to leave and the guests decline to do so? 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!

But wait a minute -- what about those FEMA camps, who are they for?

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.

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

ABC’s Jonathan Karl put White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on the hot spot today about how President Obama could say the U.S. “underestimated” ISIS when several high-ranking officials warned of the threat months ago. And what Karl asked is whether this was underestimation on the part of the intel community or on the part of the president. Karl brought up congressional testimony last November from Assistant Secretary of State Brett McGurk. In his statements to the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee [PDF], McGurk spoke of multiple attacks ISIS had carried out last year, and explained how ISIS has been able to thrive: AQ/ISIL

On Sixty Minutes, President Barack Obama said that his administration had “underestimated” the rise of the Islamic State. Recent history supports a case that the President and his counselors have underestimated the entire crisis of disorder in the Arab world at least since the 2011 Libya intervention. Libya’s anarchy today is where the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq is headed swiftly. The chaos of the Islamic State is capable of pulling down with it Jordan, Lebanon, the Gulf States and, unless they are ruthlessly lucky, Turkey and Iran, too. How bad is Libya?

It’s becoming a disturbing trend.

From Seattle, Washington to West Orange, New Jersey, Brown left four bodies in his wake. But the national press refused to report on his case until weeks after he was indicted. Almost none outside local media outlets in Seattle noted that Brown had intentionally targeted gay men is his campaign of vengeance. A Seattle-based Fox affiliate called Brown a “radical

Harry Reid is a determined radical, intent on limiting freedom, overturning American traditions, and remaking our institutions in the name of crushing the opposition and empowering the left. His attempt to amend the First Amendment to curb free speech is a natural extension of his obliteration of longstanding Senate rules that promote deliberation and minority input. But Reid seems almost moderate by left-wing Democrat standards. Take Donna Brazile, vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee for voter registration and participation. For her, eviscerating the First Amendment is small potatoes; she wants to scrap the entire U.S. Constitution. Brazile tweeted: “We need

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.
