The Democrat Plot to Reshape America’s Electorate

By Jerry A. Kane

Democrat Party officials, politicians, labor leaders, and left-wing organizers have adopted a strategy to drastically transform America’s electorate through illegal immigration that will guarantee one-party rule and a socialist dictatorship. 

The Curley Effect strategy reduces the political clout of the middle class by reshaping the American electorate. The strategy is named for Irish-American Mayor James Michael Curley, who transformed Boston from a city of poor Irish-Catholics and white Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASPs) into an all-Irish city that would keep reelecting him.

Curley effectively drove the WASPs away by adopting government policies to confiscate their wealth and fiery rhetoric to increase his base among the poorer Irish. 

The Curley Effect is a conscious effort to shape the demographics of an office-holder’s electorate by adopting destructive policies aimed at opposition voters, even when such policies cause an economic downturn for the political jurisdiction.  The Curley Effect occurs when the incumbent does everything to ensure the probability of reelection and disregards the economy of the jurisdiction as the crucial determinant for reelection. 

The Curley Effect happened in Detroit under Mayor Coleman Young and in Zimbabwe under President Robert Mugabe. During 24 years as mayor of Detroit, Young drove white residents and businesses out of the city, yet he remained popular among blacks who kept reelecting him, in spite of the city’s deteriorating economic base. 

The Curley Effect also happened in Zimbabwe when President Robert Mugabe mistreated white farmers and openly encouraged their emigration despite the huge cost to the country’s economy.

Democrats know their party doesn’t do well nationally among white voters, compared to Republicans, but they do extremely well among black and poorer Hispanic voters, which is why they oppose Arizona’s enforcement of immigration law and promote comprehensive immigration reform.

Although Democrats claim to support mass immigration for “humanitarian” or “moral” reasons, their objective is to transform America’s electorate by granting millions of poor, low-skilled illegals immunity and citizenship to solidify their political base and ensure their power in perpetuity.  

If the Democrat strategy succeeds, not only will America’s racial and cultural composition be forever changed, but also its political and religious liberties will be extinguished in the embrace of communitarianism.

Responsible Country or Rogue State?

By Jerry A. Kane

Iowa Republican Steve King broke with the leadership and agreed that Texas Congressman Joe Barton was right in calling Brother O’s strong-arm tactics to force BP to create a $20 billion escrow account for victims of the Deep Horizon oil spill a “shakedown.”

Joe Barton was spot-on when he called it a ‘shakedown.’ If you look at all they have nationalized during this administration … it should tell you, they want to swallow up as many Fortune 500 companies as they can.”—Representative Steve King

Pantywaist Republicans, which include Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, Alabama Representative Jo Bonner, and Florida Representative Jeff Miller, have joined the Democrat chorus to denounce Barton’s remarks. Bonner and Miller even threatened to strip Barton of his House Energy and Commerce Committee position if he didn’t apologize for the apology he made to BP for the White House’s “shakedown” of the oil producer.

The three Republican lawmakers chose to pander to their outraged constituents rather than uphold the rule of law and fight the Constitutional breach by the would-be dictator.

What Brother O did to BP was nothing short of a Chicagoland mob-style “shakedown” in forcing money from the hands of a private business. At the behest of Brother O, BP

  1. agreed to pay $20 billion over four years to an “independent” party;
  2. identified $20 billion in U.S. assets that could be liquidated should BP not be able to pay on time;
  3. received no assurances that the ultimate economic damages would not be higher;
  4. remained liable for all individual and state claims in court;
  5. kept the fund completely separate from any environmental damages, which the Bread and Circuses administration says could top $30 billion;
  6. paid $100 million to workers who are unemployed because of Brother O’s moratorium on offshore oil drilling; and
  7. received no assurance that Brother O would not ask for more money if the ban becomes permanent. 

All that BP got in return was a statement from Brother O saying he didn’t want to drive BP into bankruptcy, a response suggestive of an “Empty yer pockets and maybe I’ll let ya live” thugocracy.

The Constitution does not give the President dictatorial powers to ensure victims get what’s coming to them. The Executive Branch does not house a Cosa Nostra Don, and the United States is not some banana republic with a ruling dictator who can intentionally ignore its Constitution and arbitrarily step outside the laws and procedures of its judiciary.  

If America continues to operate as a criminal enterprise, it will soon lose its hard earned reputation in the world as a responsible country and become just another rogue state ruled by a despotic regime.

The Republican leadership either no longer knows or has forgotten the importance of adhering to the underlying authority of the Constitution and following the rule of law. Patriots need to remind them in November by electing representatives like Steve King and Joe Barton who will stand up for the Constitution and the rule of law even when it’s not popular to do so.
