[jwplayer Kq9GQJZx-XNcErKyb] In case you missed it, Cleveland.com released its annual poll of Big Ten writers, and for the first time in half a decade, Ohio State wasn’t the near unanimous pick to win the conference. In a somewhat split decision, Michigan is the choice. While we haven’t made a decision either way as to […]

Here in Canada we now have a climate emergency. Yup, it is the new paradigm brought to you by the UN. The whole western world has embraced this concept. Interesting, about 6 months ago a poll was done asking Canadians about their priorities given the upcoming election. The economy hit number one with climate change […]

Dandelion's Expedition

Magic Mountain: a mountain that magically has nearly no beta. Damien and I passed through the vicinity of this mysterious peak last year and immediately thought it would be a great objective for a Mountaineers Basic Climb. I suppose this means that we actually began planning for this trip nearly a year ago! Damien and […]

When Lean Cuisine launched in 1981, my parents got all their food at Bruno’s Grocery, a five-minute Volkswagen Bug ride from their condo. Bruno’s had three frozen aisles. At the end of one of those aisles were all the ready-to-eat meals available for young Allen and Stella: Stouffer’s, Lean Cuisine, Healthy Choice, and a couple […]

I have rules. They are to protect my person, my property, and my heart. I didn’t come up with them all at once, but they were each canonized through experience. Some rules are more important than others. 1) First date meetings should be in a public place. Not a motel room, car, or her apartment […]

The Ukiah Daily Journal
On his last day in office in 1989, President Ronald Reagan reaffirmed the Republican position on immigration. In his speech, Reagan recognized the historic role immigration has played in making America great. He said. “America represents something universal in the human spirit. I received a letter not long ago from a man who said, ‘You can go to Japan to live, but you cannot become Japanese. You can go to France to live and not become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany or Turkey, and you won’t become a German or a Turk.’ But then he added, ‘Anybody from any corner of the world can come to America to live and become an American’ … This I believe is one of the most important sources of America’s greatness. We lead the world because unique among nations, we draw our people, our strength, from every country and every corner of the world … Thanks to each wave of new arrivals to this land of opportunity, we’re a nation forever young, forever bursting with energy and new ideas, and always on the cutting edge; always leading the world to the next frontier …” President Reagan was an optimist by nature. As leader of the GOP, Reagan embraced those who would choose to emigrate to America to make a better life for themselves and their children. Because their contributions would fortify America’s strength as a force for good in the world. 2016 Republican platform. Immigration and the Rule of Law “Our party is the natural home for those who come in search of freedom and justice. We welcome all to the Great Opportunity Party. The greatest asset of the American economy is the American worker. Our immigration system must protect American working families and their wages, for citizens and legal immigrants alike, in a way that will improve the economy. Just as immigrant labor helped build our country in the past, today’s legal immigrants are making vital contributions in every aspect of national life. Their industry and commitment to American values strengthens our economy, enriches our culture, and enables us to better understand and more effectively compete with the rest of the world. We are particularly grateful to the thousands of new legal immigrants, many of them not yet citizens, who are serving in the Armed Forces and among first responders. Their patriotism should encourage all to embrace the newcomers legally among us, assist their journey to full citizenship, and help their communities avoid isolation from the mainstream of society. We are also thankful for the many legal immigrants who continue to contribute to American society…” So what happened to the GOP’s long standing advocacy of legal immigration, which formerly included immigrants seeking asylum? The simple answer is that Donald Trump hijacked the party of Lincoln, and reversed the party’s stance on immigration for documented as well as undocumented immigrants seeking asylum. Why? Because Fascist leaders require scapegoats. Fascism fosters resentment of the “other,” who can be blamed for whatever problems the populace faces; and Fascism requires a Great Leader, who will remedy the people’s distress, only if given unlimited power to save the country. (Hitler, Mussolini, Turkey’s Erdogen) In this case, we have the longest economic recovery in US history, which has largely bypassed the middle and lower classes, as wealth is accumulated to the oligarchs who run the country, e.g. 89 percent of the 2017 tax cuts went to the to the top 10 percent. A lot of working class whites feel left out of the economic recovery, and following Trump’s rhetoric, look to blame someone for their situation. Of course, this transfer of wealth to the rich is only part of the complex web of factors, which contribute to the decline of the American middle class, but wage earners aren’t political scientists (nor am I). American immigration policy has always been politically contentious, and opponents of immigration have always exploited white racial animus. So, it’s no surprise that Trump descended the escalator in 2015 to disparage Mexican immigrants as drug dealers, criminals, and rapists? Or framed 1.6 billion Muslims as ISIS terrorists? Or blamed the county’s economic problems on China and Japan? The cult of Fascist leadership always begins by blaming the “other” for one’s frustrations. That’s been Trump’s modus operandi from the start. The GOP is now a political cult that dares not criticize their Dear Leader, for fear of being turned out of office by their constituents. They have chosen blind obeisance to Trump over moral principles and the rule of law. As have his cult followers, including the Evangelical Right, whose selective morality countenances the warehousing of children in cages, if that would help achieve their holy grail of banning abortion. Their moral imperative to act in a manner that demonstrates the love of Jesus through actions seems to to have been changed to “who would Jesus detain?” In 2019, American style Fascism is disguised as Nationalism (MAGA) on the political Right. It’s saddening that so many American voters have drunk Trump’s Kool-Aid. Jeff Konicek is a retired educator and bonsai expert living in Laytonville.
