THE DAILY BLADE: Radical Environmentalist Hostage-Taker’s Manifesto Includes Stuff Obama’s Czars Have Advocated
James Jay Lee, who took three people hostages at the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Sprints, MD,while wearing "metalic canisters" strapped to his chest and back that he claimed were bombs, was shot dead by SWAT officers when he became agitated after four hours of negotiations and pulled out a handgun.
In addition to being from Hawaii, according to his manifesto - in which he took on the role of The Discovery Channel’s program director - Lee was:
† Pro-abortion, and wanted people sterilized to promote population control: “[P]eople can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution” and wanted “all programs” on Discovery Health-TLC to “stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants” and instead “encourag[e] human sterilization.”
† Anti-war: “[T]alk about ways to disassemble civilization and … solving global military mechanized conflict."
† Against illegal immigration: “[F]ind solutions to stopping ALL immigration pollution and the anchor baby filth that follows that. … The first world is feeding the population growth of the Third World and those human families are going to where the food is! They must stop procreating new humans looking for nonexistant [sic] jobs!”
† A global warming zealot: “Find solutions for Global Warming, Automotive pollution, International Trade, factory pollution, and the whole blasted human economy.”
† Contemptuous of Creationism: “[M]ention the Malthusian sciences about how food production leads to the overpopulation of the Human race. Talk about Evolution. Talk about Malthus and Darwin until it sinks into the stupid people's brains until they get it!!”
† Anti-capitalism: “[C]orrect and dismantle the dangerous US world economy. Find solutions for their disasterous [sic] Ponzi-Casino economy before they take the world to another nuclear war.”
† Against the Obama administration’s stimulus package: “[F]ind solutions for unemployment and housing. All these unemployed people makes me think the US is headed toward more war.”
† A radical environmentalist: “Even one child born in the US will use 30 to a thousand times more resources than a Third World child. … Saving the environment and the remaning species diversity of the planet is now your mindset. Nothing is more important than saving them. The Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels. The humans? The planet does not need humans.”
Were it not for his views on illegal immigration and the stimulus package, he could’ve been one of President Barack Hussein Obama’s czars:
† Climate Czar Todd Stern and Energy and Environment Czar Carol Browner (both of whom support the Dems’ economy-killing cap-and-trade scheme);
† Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein (he wants to ban hunting and advocates humans representing the rights of animals in court);
† Science Czar John Holdren (advocates greenhouse gas reduction; believes the U.S. should sign the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty; and co-authored a book in 1977, “Ecoscience: Population, Resources, and Environment,” that considered various population control strategies including “laws requiring compulsory abortion,” which the authors maintained “could be sustained under the existing Constitution";
† Medicare Czar Donald Berwick who supports healthcare rationing meant to send people to an early grave; and
If You Don’t Build It, They Will Go
The number of illegal immigrants in the United States, after peaking at 12 million in 2007, fell to about 11.1 million in 2009, the first clear decline in two decades. … The reduction came primarily from decreases among illegal immigrants from Latin American countries other than Mexico, the report found. … Some 7 million Mexicans make up about 60 percent of all illegal immigrants, still by far the largest national group, the Pew Center said.
The report is based on census data from March 2009, the most recent census sample that is detailed enough for Pew demographers to estimate the statistically elusive population of illegal immigrants. …
[T]he figure that may be most sobering to all sides in the increasingly contentious immigration debate is the estimate that more than 11 million illegal immigrants remain here. The Pew report shows that despite myriad pressures, there was no mass exodus of those immigrants to their home countries, especially not to Mexico.
Instead, the report confirms earlier findings by American and Mexican demographers that the flow of Mexicans coming in to the United States illegally to look for work had slowed sharply.
Despite passing more than a dozen laws in the past couple of years to curb illegal immigration, the Pew report found that the largest drop in the number of illegal aliens did not occur in AZ. Instead, FL, NV and VA – all of which suffered real estate busts – saw significant declines in illegal immigration once new home construction dried up.

[I]t’s not the deficit, the persistently high unemployment rate or the struggling economy that’s stopping Dems from keeping the Bush tax cuts in their current form. It’s that when Obama signs whatever bill Congress sends to his desk, they will no longer be the Bush tax cuts, and after years of demagoguery (“tax cuts for the rich”) Dems can’t negate one of their most oft-repeated attack lines. They’d rather everyone’s taxes go up, than the taxes of wealthy Americans go down.

Democrats have a conundrum. If they agree to extend the Bush tax cuts - the heart of Bush’s economic policies, which only have an expiration date in the first place because Democrats threatened to filibuster them otherwise - they’re endorsing Bush’s economic policies. If they don’t extend them, Barack Obama and the Democrats still left in Congress will almost certainly create a double-dip recession that will threaten to make their party radioactive for the next few election cycles. Perhaps they should have thought their 2010 strategy of demonizing Bush through a little more.
