Border-Patrol-Illegal-Aliens

Of course the Society of Professional Journalists would have a “Diversity Committee.” How else could liberals continue on with the thought policing of which they became so fond in college? Now, according to the SPJ’s The Quill,(The Constitution and use of ‘illegal immigrant’ ) they think the AP style book should be changed to provide amnesty to illegal aliens until they are proven to be in the U.S. illegally.

Frequent use of the phrases “illegal immigrant” and “illegal alien” by our mainstream media is being questioned in order to remain faithful to the principles of our U.S. Constitution.

SPJ’s Diversity Committee met during the 2010 convention in Las Vegas and decided to engage in a yearlong educational campaign designed to inform and sensitize journalists as to the best language to use when writing and reporting on undocumented immigrants.

Undocumented Immigrants

1. Undocumented Immigrants

1. A politically correct term for people who have illegally entered into America, aka illegal aliens.

I wish we would worry less about being politically correct and start calling these undocumented immigrants what they really are, unwanted, illegal aliens.

Megyn Kelly picked up on the topic at Fox News. Now, TPM is taking out after her. Given that so many self-professed journalists so routinely perform journalistic malpractice of the JournoList variety today, in the spirit of being certain, I propose we stop calling all of them journalists. We can just call them something fun, like typing monkeys, until we’re absolutely convinced they are capable of producing something akin to objective journalism, as opposed to the usual liberal spew they regularly regurgitate on cue.

TPM:

Unfortunately, thanks to foolish constructs like the SPJ’s diversity committee, what was once thought to be a vital, objective and independent force in American democracy – journalism, is very often little more than liberal tripe. Genuine free thinkers need no longer apply.


Plenty of conservatives are pretty upset over a campaign by the Society of Professional Journalists to convince reporters to stop using the terms “illegal aliens” and “illegal immigrants” in favor of “undocumented immigrant.” But none are as livid as perpetually outraged Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who on Wednesday afternoon asked if journalists were going to start calling rapists “non-consensual sex partners” next.

“You could say that a burglar is an unauthorized visitor. You know, you could say that a rapist is a non-consensual sex partner which, obviously, would be considered offensive to the victims of those crimes,” Kelly said. “So how far could you take this?”

The Massachusetts Parole Board is under scrutiny after a local police officer was killed by a career criminal who was released despite serving a term of three concurrent life sentences. Dominic Cinelli was serving time for shooting a security guard during an armed robbery to feed his heroin addiction when he told the board in November 2008 that he was a changed man, the Boston Globe reported.

Four months later the board unanimously voted to free Cinelli, but police say the 57-year-old returned to his ugly ways Sunday, fatally shooting Woburn police officer John Maguire, 60, while robbing a Kohl’s department store. Cinelli also died in the shootout.

But critics say Cinelli isn’t the only person to blame for Maguire’s death.

“I don’t know how any member of the Parole Board justifies that,” Laurie Myers, president of Community Voices, a Chelmsford-based nonprofit that advocates on behalf of crime victims, told the Globe. “He shouldn’t have been out, and now there’s another person dead.”

Cinelli had a lengthy rap sheet filled with armed robberies, assaults and other offenses, had been serving three life sentences since 1976, and had chronic disciplinary problems while in prison including two escapes during which he committed crimes, the Globe reported.

Still, he won the board over by saying the deaths in the family, including his mother’s, and drug counseling changed him, the paper reported.

“When you hear that somebody who had been serving three life sentences is released on parole and commits another violent crime that causes the death of a police officer, that causes us great concern,” Mark K. Leahy, president of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association and the Northborough police chief told the Globe.

John Grossman, the state’s undersecretary of public safety and security, told the Globe that Gov. Deval Patrick ordered the Parole Board to review the decision.

“We’re doing a complete look at what happened, and whatever amount of time it takes to do it right, we’re going to take,” he said.

Friends,

As many of you may already know, recently a network of Wikileaks-sympathizing hackers orchestrated crippling, albeit temporary, cyber-attacks on the websites of patriotic, law-abiding organizations around the country, including SarahPAC.com. It is widely believed that the same ad-hoc group of international cyber-criminals took down the websites of many organizations that terminated their business relationships with Wikileaks after their latest dump of compromising and classified US government information. These organizations include iconic American companies such as Visa and MasterCard as well as dotcom giants such as Amazon and Ebay’s PayPal.

The actions taken by Wikileaks’ supporters against these respected American companies show that their true intent is far from noble, and exposes their utter disregard for the collateral damage and financial fallout that resulted from their denial of service attacks. These reckless attacks on major transaction processors during the Christmas season added uncertainty to an already fragile economy and cost them money and resources that could have otherwise been used to grow their businesses and create new jobs.

These malicious hackers targeted major American companies simply for their refusal to participate in the degradation of America’s ability to engage in diplomacy and the direct endangerment of our troops through the release of thousands of battlefield reports. Gov. Palin quickly and unapologetically spoke out against the illegal and irresponsible acts that Wikileaks explicitly exists to perpetrate. After her comments, SarahPAC.com immediately became another target for cyber-attack by Wikileaks’ unofficial hacker-accomplices. In the name of defending free speech, the hackers, alleged to operate under the collective branding of ‘Anonymous’, decided to punish Gov. Palin for hers by flooding SarahPAC.com with a torrent of web traffic in order to make the website inaccessible to supporters.

The twisted logic of these self-styled advocates for free speech doesn’t seem to differentiate between releasing millions of sensitive US government documents with the intent of degrading our nation’s security and standing, and criticizing those who do so. Few times in our history have we, as a nation, faced so many security threats from such a varied and unpredictable array of rogue nations, terrorist organizations, and depraved individuals, and yet these self-styled ‘hacktivists’ are so committed to the continued release of our state secrets that they have decided to use their considerable ‘talents’ to punish those who dare speak out against the reckless endangerment of our republic through espionage.

SarahPAC was forced to spend some of our resources restoring functionality to our website and defending against future attacks, but we won’t allow our commonsense conservative message to be silenced by a few malcontents.

Please help us continue to support solid conservative candidates around the country by donating $50, $75, or $100 to SarahPAC.

The illegally obtained information contained within the State Department cable leaks is already damaging our diplomats’ ability to advance American interests abroad and the Afghanistan and Iraq war document leaks represent a goldmine of intelligence for our most dangerous enemies to use against our troops on the battlefield.

Please stand with SarahPAC against the reprehensible and downright dangerous acts of the Wikileaks organization and the cyber-intimidation of its misguided hacker allies.

Sincerely,

Tim Crawford
Treasurer SarahPAC

The FBI raided the offices of 4Chan, the Internet Service Provider which was involved in the 2008 hacking of Gov. Palin’s private email accounts, The Smoking Gun today reported.

The FBI investigation began earlier this month after PayPal officials contacted agents and “reported that an Internet activist group using the names ‘4chan’ and “Anonymous” appeared to be organizing a distributed denial of service (“DDoS”) attack against the company,” according to an FBI affidavit excerpted here.
