Credbility SUNsets: Dave Lucas, the New York Sun, and the Knoxville Horror

By Nicholas Stix

On May 22, the allegedly conservative New York Sun published a guest op-ed column by John Leo, “The Politics of News,” on the racial censorship imposed by the MSM on the Knoxville Horror story of the carjacking-robbery-kidnapping-torture-gang rape-murder-corpse desecrations of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom. But in a move that may yet bite the Sun’s editors in the pants, they apparently forgot to take their irony supplements.

Blogger Dave Lucas tried twice to post comments to Leo’s column. Both times – once with links, once without – he was censored.

Leo’s column is much better than standard Republican MSM fare.


The mainstream press does not like to carry stories of black mayhem and white victims. First, there is the fear of stirring up more racism among Klansmen and neo-Nazis, as the Knoxville case has started to do. More importantly, the newsroom culture tends to view black-on-white crimes as responses to black oppression, and therefore not worth reporting. Whereas similar white-on-black crime is oppression itself, and thus crucially important to put before readers and viewers.


I think Leo’s first explanation is wrong in giving legitimacy to an MSM cover story. Media apologists may say they fear stirring up white racism by reporting on the Knoxville Horror, but first of all, Klansmen and neo-Nazis are politically impotent figures, as opposed to the black supremacists who have well-paying jobs at taxpayers’ expense, tenured professorships and school teacher sinecures, and positions running schools and even school systems, from which they spew lies and hatred and provoke violence (see the chapter on education in this report), and who have engaged in campaigns of mass murder against whites. Secondly, it was the suppression of the story that inspired the white supremacists and neo-Nazis to organize rallies in Knoxville, the first of which is scheduled to take place on May 26 at 3:00 p.m., on the steps of city’s old courthouse, and the second of which is scheduled to take place at the same location on June 16.

Neo-Nazi leader Alex Linder of the Vanguard News Network, who organized the May 26 rally, told me in April that he refuses to apply for a permit, and said in so many words that he is daring the authorities to stop him.

“Uh, we’re just going to, simply, uh, we’re going to use our rights.”

(Oh, so, in other words, you might do it without a permit.)

“[Chuckles] We’re going to do – yeah, we’re going to do it without a permit.”

Linder’s explanation for the media suppression? “Well, it’s the Jewish media control. And the fact that any kind of non-white crime doesn’t fit their agenda, so they suppress it….

“The Jews are the ones who produce the policies that ensure that this stuff happens.”

Among other things, Linder told me, “I was disappointed to find out you’re a Jew.” Typical for a neo-Nazi, he is more obsessed with Jews, with whom he sees “whites” in a defensive war of extermination, than he is with blacks or even “liberals.” (The scare quotes around whites are because Linder sees “whites” and “Jews” as two distinct races who cannot share the same planet.)

The brilliance and courage of John Leo’s second point, however, more than make up for the wrongheadedness of the first.

[T]he newsroom culture tends to view black-on-white crimes as responses to black oppression, and therefore not worth reporting. Whereas similar white-on-black crime is oppression itself, and thus crucially important to put before readers and viewers.


So that the reader does not water down Leo’s meaning, Leo is saying that newsrooms are dominated by people who privately cheer on blacks who commit violent, even gruesome crimes against whites, while censoring those stories, and correspondingly exaggerating stories of white-on-black crime.

On the May 22, 2007 O’Reilly Report, socialist columnist Ellis Henican from Long Island Newsday was the guest. Henican not only denied that the gang-rapes, tortures, murders, and corpse desecrations committed against Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom were racially motivated, he even went so far as to contradict guest host Michelle Malkin’s observation of her experience of the role race plays in newsrooms in suppressing stories. Henican acted as though Malkin were delusional. (See, I’ll give the Devil her due!)

Such anti-white newsroom prejudices have been exhaustively detailed by Ruth Shalit, in her groundbreaking, 13,000-word 1995 New Republic exposé, “Race in the Newsroom—The Washington Post in Black and White,” and in William McGowan’s 2001 book, Coloring the News: How Crusading for Diversity Has Corrupted American Journalism. More recently, in 2005 and 2006 (also here, on September 21), building on work by the bloggers “ziel” of Your Lying Eyes and Eric Scheie at Classical Values, I wrote exposés on the campaign of massive journalistic fraud engineered by the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

In early September 2005, the “Times-Pic” first reported on the savagery that pervaded post-Katrina New Orleans, and then, chagrined at having portrayed black folks behaving badly, its editors and reporters resolved to unreport the truth. The newspaper then assembled a team to discredit its own stories, but without admitting that it had published them. The newspaper acted as though someone else had published the stories. The irony of all this is that most or all of the original Times-Pic stories were true, while the story “discrediting” them was one of the biggest frauds in American journalism history. In one of the darkest moments in American journalism history (coming two years after the Jayson Blair scandal!), for the Times-Pic’s yeoman efforts at deceiving the public, it was awarded not one but two Pulitzer Prizes.

(Regarding Jayson Blair, see here, here, and here.)

More apropo, I bestowed on the newspaper a Duranty-Blair Award for Journalistic Infamy.

But coming from the smirking Henican, such prevaricating was particularly shameless. Ellis Henican is a veteran staffer at Newsday, which has an over thirty-year tradition of anti-white racism, which until the New York Times caught up under Arthur “Pinch” Sulzberger Jr., was by far the most radical leftwing daily newspaper in New York, and which during the mid-1970s, in the middle of a nationwide campaign by black supremacists to systematically assassinate white policemen (see also here), sought through fraudulent reporting to get heroic white policemen murdered.

As the friend who alerted me to the late-night re-run of Henican’s appearance quipped, “Of course not -- just some misguided, oppressed ‘yoots.’”

Now, Dave Lucas has a sense of fairness and of what will entertain readers. On May 18, when he posted about Michelle Malkin’s Knoxville video, he posted links both to her video and to my column attacking her for stealing credit for the story.

When Lucas emailed me Wednesday of his problems with the Sun, I tried posting a brief comment to Leo’s article – “Actually, Michelle Malkin is not leading the charge, though an awful lot of people feel the need to give her credit” — along with links to my original Knoxville story and my Malkin broadside, the paper’s blog censor permitted my comment – but censored the links, without which the comment was just so much unsupported blather.

This wasn’t the Sun’s first problem with censorship and reporting on race. (One would be shocked, if it were.)

Back in December 2002, when black supremacist kidnapper-murderer-extortionist Sonny Carson died, the Sun’s black columnist, Errol Louis, devoted a thoroughly dishonest column to Carson, whom Louis fondly referred to as a “trickster.” Louis spent not word on Carson’s history as a violent gangster. A reader who was unfamiliar with Carson would learn nothing about his history of murder, of his kidnapping conviction (the kidnapping victim was murdered during the kidnapping, and Carson was convicted of kidnapping, but somehow not convicted of murder), of his years-long violent campaign terrorizing, seeking to extort money from Korean produce store owners, and in one case, murdering them, or of his other campaign to run competent white teachers out of black-dominated schools, and even to violently run out black school principals who were not his allies.

The Sun is supposedly a conservative newspaper, and so one would expect that it would hire a conservative to be its token black columnist. However, in the racially sycophantic way Republicans have of dealing with race, the newspapers editors were apparently happy just to have any black New Yorker on its masthead, and so hired Louis.

I wrote a letter exposing the true Sonny Carson that Louis had hidden from readers, but the newspaper protected him – and left its readers in the lurch.

The politics of news, indeed!

Knoxville Horror: Trial Dates Set; MSM “Discovers” Case; Bloggers Continue Spreading Rumors

By Nicholas Stix

The MSM is finally starting, ever so modestly, to report on Tennessee’s Knoxville Horror, even as far from the crime scene as Denver! (A tip o’ the hat to Modern Tribalist.)

On Thursday, Knox County Criminal Court Judge Richard Baumgartner announced that the four defendants charged with having kidnapped, robbed, gang-raped, murdered, desecrated the corpses of, and stolen from Channon Christian, 21, and Christopher Newsom, 23, will each have a separate trial, each of which Judge Baumgartner foresees – perhaps a tad optimistically – as lasting two weeks. The state indictments can all be read here.

Newsom was anally gang-raped, and then murdered several hours after being kidnapped; Christian was vaginally, orally, and anally gang-raped, and murdered approximately 24 hours after the couple was kidnapped. At one point, one or more of the defendants allegedly also poured cleaning fluid down the presumably then still living Christian’s throat, but a false report by Michelle Malkin notwithstanding, none of the defendants has been charged with torture.

(Speaking of false reporting, 99 percent of the bloggers and Web sites I have read on the case, even Court TV’s usually reliable Crime Library, have been content to uncritically regurgitate an unsourced rumor that I traced back to neo-Nazi New York State radio host Hal Turner, whereby the killers chopped off the living Christopher Newsom’s penis and at least one of the living Channon Christian’s breasts. The largely neoconservative bloggers in question, who claim to hate neo-Nazis, and who tar as a white supremacist anyone who is not racially correct, do not appreciate being told where they got their “facts” on the case. On May 18, after a four-month-long stonewalling campaign by law enforcement and justice officials, Knox County District Attorney General Randy Nichols’ special assistant, John Gill, insisted that the Internet rumors of sexual mutilation are “absolutely not true.” Gill’s statement has so far had no effect on the bloggers, and authorities in Knoxville have still not released the autopsy reports on the victims.)

George Geovonni Thomas, 24, is charged with having shot Newsom to death and set his corpse on fire. Christian may have been strangled.

According to a February 1 report by Fox News’ Knoxville affiliate, WATE 6 News, at least one of the killers dismembered Christian, placing her body parts in five separate garbage bags and putting the bags in a garbage can in the kitchen of the apartment of defendant-brothers Letalvis Darnell Cobbins, 24, and Lemaricus Devall Davidson, 25, where police found the bags. Between the February 1 report and May 17, the dismemberment of Channon Christian was no longer included in any of the reports this reporter has seen; I only came into possession of the aforementioned report on May 17, thanks to a reader’s help. Coincidentally, that same day, a report on Knoxville’s WVLT-TV 8 News spoke vaguely of police “finding Channon Christian stuffed in garbage bags.”

It is not known whether the killers murdered Christian first, or began dismembering her while she was still alive, something for which there is a precedent among black racist torture-killers of whites.

Ex-con Letalvis Cobbins, alias Letalvis Davidson (convicted of felony third-degree attempted robbery on May 19, 2003, in Queens, NY – he just celebrated his anniversary!), is scheduled for trial on May 12, 2008. Cobbins is indicted on 46 Tennessee state felony counts, including aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, aggravated rape, felony murder, premeditated murder and theft.

Cobbins’ girlfriend, Vanessa Coleman, 18, was indicted on 40 state felony counts, including aggravated rape, felony murder, and premeditated murder. In a touching courtroom moment on Thursday, according to WVLT-TV 8 reporter Gordon Boyd, Coleman “mouthed the words, ‘I love you’ as she was led out.” Coleman’s trial is set to begin on June 16, 2008.

Coleman was referred to in initial reports in January as a “witness” rather than as a suspect, and was a source of much material that eventually went into the case against her and her fellow defendants. An able defense attorney would try and spin Coleman’s cooperation into a mitigating factor at trial, and if she is convicted, during the sentencing phase. (Although Tennessee is a death-penalty state, Knox County District Attorney General Randy Nichols has inexplicably refused to reveal whether he will seek the death penalty.) How loving Cobbins is presently feeling about Coleman’s cooperation with federal agents and local police may be another matter entirely.

Cobbins’ ex-con brother, Lemaricus Davidson (convicted of federal carjacking charges in 2001, he served but a token sentence and released only shortly before his alleged crime spree), was charged with the same 46 counts as Cobbins, and is scheduled to go on trial for them on July 14, 2008. (According to published reports, Eric Dewayne Boyd, 34, told federal agents that Davidson had confessed to him that he had murdered – “choked” – Channon Christian.)

In addition to the initial 46-count indictment handed down against Davidson on February 1, on May 18 he was indicted on six additional felony counts in the January 8 armed robbery of a local Pizza Hut, the attempted armed robbery of a female customer in the restaurant, and weapons possession charges. (Not noticing that Davidson allegedly had a gun trained on her when he allegedly tried to grab the customer’s purse, she resisted, and the “bewildered” robber was left holding the ripped strap.) Davidson’s next court date in the Pizza Hut case is September 27.

Thus, the allegations so far are that beginning in the wee hours, Davidson spent all of January 7 variously carjacking, kidnapping, robbing, torturing and gang-raping Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian, and murdering Christian, and then headed out the next day, and robbed the Pizza Hut.

Ex-con George Thomas, likewise indicted on the same 46 counts, is scheduled for trial on August 11, 2008. Thomas is charged with having shot Newsom to death. Deputy U.S. Marshal Rich Knighten said that Davidson wept when he was arrested.

Ex-con Eric Boyd has been charged federally, in U.S. District Court in Knoxville, with “being an accessory after the fact to carjacking,” for having allegedly helped Cobbins and Thomas flee apprehension to neighboring Lebanon, KY, where Deputy U.S. Marshal Rich Knighten told me that a local-county-state-federal interagency task force of 25-30 law enforcement officers arrested the fugitives without a struggle. Boyd’s trial date has yet to be set. Boyd has not been charged with any of the state crimes. (Michelle Malkin also erroneously reported that Boyd was charged in the murders, kidnappings, and rapes of Christian and Newsom.)

Cobbins, Davidson, and Thomas were also charged federally with carjacking and two counts of federal weapons felonies, but at the request of the U.S. Attorney’s office, a federal judge dismissed the federal charges “without prejudice” (meaning that they may later be reinstated), so that the Tennessee state prosecutions could go forward first.

Having separate, consecutive trials offers potential advantages to prosecutors. Earlier defendants may seek to impute all guilt for the crimes they are charged with to defendants who have yet to be tried, and may provide a wealth of information that can be used against their alleged accomplices. Or they could simply be fonts of misinformation and lies.

For an example of such gamesmanship in the present case, when Letalvis Cobbins and George Thomas were initially apprehended in Lebanon, KY, they reportedly claimed in affidavits to federal agents that Eric Boyd, the man who had allegedly helped them escape capture in Knoxville, was in fact the rapist-murderer. So much for loyalty or gratitude.

It is not known whether Cobbins or Thomas has of late made any public expressions of love to Boyd.

Some black supremacist activists have, however, publicly expressed their love for Davidson, Cobbins and Thomas.

On May 18, “Christopher Felon,” one of the contributors to the black supremacist Web site, Svengali Media, which celebrates all black-on-white racist atrocities, and has cheered the rapes, tortures, and murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, left the following comments to my last column on the Christian-Newsom case:




  • christopherfelon said,


    Many blacks are pulling for Knoxville's 'SuperThug' & Carjacker Lemaricus Davidson to win the 2007 Sexiest & Hardest Ghetto Black Male Felon Bragging Rights competition for 2007. Others are still on the sideline as to whether it was appropriate for the competition editor, Kirkland Perkins, to waive the rapist disqualification rule and invoke the 'Emit Till' excuseable rape clause so Davidson and his brother could compete.


    I soundly support Savannah's 'Slave Avenger' Michael 'Turtle' Thorpe. The family of Thorpe's victim, Jennifer Ross, owned slaves and never paid their reparations. This is keenly why Thorpe is Perkins *favorite* to win the 2007 Rights.


    Voting online's been added. And it is exciting that Knoxville's George 'Detroit' Thomas received enough votes to qualify to compete! There's never been 3 competitors from the same city and for the same crime in the competition ever!

    Undercover Black Man: Svengali Media of Knoxville Horror Notoriety a “Hoax Site”

    By Nicholas Stix

    Two hours ago, I received the following e-mail form David Mills, aka Undercover Black Man.

    Nicholas, in your special report for AR News (May 14), you described svengalimedia.com as a "black, anti-white web site." In a later piece, you called it a "black supremacist site."

    Have you considered the possibility (as some readers of AR have) that svengalimedia is a hoax site? That people such as "Christopher Felon" and "Waldorf Carathers" don't exist, but are two in a series of dubious names associated with an interlocking network of websites, blogs and Internet trolls pushing this "Sexiest & Hardest Ghetto Black Felons" thing?

    If you believe svengalimedia is a genuine black website, do you also believe in the affiliated Web hoax -- the supposed cult leader "Yacub 7 Ali," who teaches black people how to inflict skin cancers on whites?

    You've been doing independent journalism for years; nothing about the svengalimedia website set off you BS detector?

    David Mills
    http://undercoverblackman.blogspot.com



    Dear David,

    Thanks for writing. I just shelved a long response I began, because I have other pieces I have to get back to. So, here's the short answer: If you can prove, or at least provide persuasive evidence that Svengali, et al., are hoax sites run by white nationalists or white supremacists, I'm all ears. But the mere fact that the writers use funny-sounding pseudonyms and run interlocking sites fails to make your case. The content of the sites is consistent with what I have seen of black supremacy in America both first-hand since my childhood, and since 1990 as a student of the movement/phenomenon, including melanin madness. But if you can prove otherwise, more power to you. I'll salute you, and I won't even try to get you fired from your day job.

    Nicholas Stix

    P.S. If it's a race hoax, it's one of the most brilliant ones I've ever seen.

    Knoxville Horror Trial Dates Set for One Year from Now; MSM “Discovers” Four-Month-Old Case

    Another Michelle Malkin Stooge Gets the Knoxville Horror Story Wrong

    By Nicholas Stix

    An Eric Stakelback, at Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network, wrote today, “And with our good friend Michelle Malkin turning in a powerful video blog on the topic yesterday at Hot Air TV, I figured the time was right to tell you the horrific details of the rape, torture, mutilation and murder of two Tennessee college students, 23-year-old Christopher Newsom and 21-year-old Channon Christian.”

    Stakelback then goes on to recite the rumor-based blog of one of Malkin’s lazy cronies, as if it were Gospel, replete with the unsourced Internet rumors about a dismembered penis, cut-off breasts, and urination on the victims.

    From now on, any time Malkin “reports” a story or credits one of her cronies with reporting it, or one of her cronies credits her with reporting it, you have to ask yourself, “Who is the real reporter whose credit is being stolen?”

    The Internet revolution has come full circle, and is now dominated by individuals as corrupt as those they claimed to be replacing.

    Hit this link, in order to write Eric Stakelback. And hit the following link to read the real Knoxville Horror story.

    Shame on You, Michelle Malkin! A Republican Diva, Journalistic Ethics, and the Knoxville Horror

    By Nicholas Stix

    Yesterday, Michelle Malkin posted a video on the Knoxville Horror, the carjacking-kidnapping-robbery-gang rape-sodomy-torture-murders of Channon Christian, 21, and her boyfriend, Christopher Newsom, 23, in Knoxville, Tennessee. Letalvis Cobbins, 24, his brother Lemaricus Davidson, 25, George Thomas, 24, and Cobbins’ girlfriend, Vanessa Coleman, 18, have been charged with murder, rape (anal, in Newsom’s case; vaginal, anal, and oral, in Christian’s case), armed kidnapping, armed robbery and theft.

    (Today, May 17, the accused have a court date in Knox County Criminal Court. Last month, a court source told me that the defense attorneys would merely be presenting motions, likely including one for a change of venue, and that the case would not be proceeding to trial for many months.)

    That would be my story. As in, the one I spent five weeks covering for American Renaissance, which published it two days before Malkin posted her video. In other words, she had to know about my story. Only she not only never mentions me, but splays screen shots during her “story” of non-stories written by Republican blogger cronies of hers (some of them after my story had run) who had not only not researched the story, but who simply copied and pasted every wild Internet rumor they came across – Mark Alexander, Matthew Sheffield, James H. Lilley of the Baltimore Reporter, who has been reprinted all over the place, et al. Malkin even goes so far as put a link next to her video to a blog post by Glenn Reynolds, aka Instapundit, which is nothing but yet another link to a mutual Republican blogger crony, LaShawn Barber. A link to a link! That last bit of blogrolling inspired two images in my mind: One is of a closed, corrupt system, every bit as bad as the so-called MSM. The other, equally obscene image, is of a sort of orgy that became popular, or so I’ve read, in New York during the Age of AIDS, in which … well, I think I’ve gone far enough with that image.

    Malkin even shows a screen shot of the Wikipedia entry on the story, in which someone linked to my story immediately after mine appeared on May 14. However, as my next column will show, the Wikipedia entry, for reasons largely typical of that particular propaganda organization, is as unreliable as those of the bloggers.

    You’ll notice that I have not embedded a single link to the non-stories I’ve cited. Typically, I’m link-crazy; in preparing a story for publication, I’ll spend hours finding links to supporting and related stories. But I have no intention of driving traffic to the sites of journalistic frauds and goldbricks.

    And Malkin doesn’t even get the story right!

    For one thing, she lists Eric Boyd first among the defendants, and then lists all of the charges (and even some non-existent charges!), as if Boyd had been charged with the full list of crimes that Lemaricus Davidson, Letalvis Cobbins, George Thomas and Vanessa Coleman have been charged with in Knox County Criminal Court. But in fact, Boyd was not charged at all in the 46-count state indictment. Boyd has been charged federally, in U.S. District Court (also in Knoxville), with “BEING AN ACCESSORY AFTER THE FACT TO CARJACKING,” for having allegedly helped Cobbins and Thomas flee apprehension to neighboring Lebanon, KY, where a local-county-state-federal interagency task force arrested them without a struggle. (More on that apprehension in a future column.)

    Malkin also “reports” that the defendants have been charged with “torture,” but no such charge is in either the state or federal indictments. I know that, because unlike, Malkin, I took the trouble to contact the county and federal courts in Knoxville, obtain the federal indictments, as well as the federal affidavits, for the modest cost of $4.90, plus the cost of several long-distance telephone calls, and r-e-a-d the state and federal documents. (Of course, the calls and conversations with court clerks took place over the course of a few days.) Malkin obviously didn’t do any of the reportorial leg work. She’s a diva, and divas are above that.

    (The caps were not my way of emphasizing the charges, but rather the way the feds wrote the indictments, which I just re-read from the documents the federal court clerks sent me.)

    Her misreporting of the “torture” indictments ties into her misreporting of the “torture.” Granted, pouring cleaning fluid down a living woman’s throat counts as torture in my book, but the authorities have taken a much different tack, in rationalizing that act as having been meant to destroy DNA evidence.

    Malkin also quotes the claim that Channon Christian was found in five separate garbage bags. That claim is not in my report, because I could not find a reliable report of it. Granted, I found an alleged copy of a news report that had been posted to a message board, including the sentence, “Her body was in five separate dark trash bags.” But the message board is for the Neo-Nazi group, Original Dissent. Call me intolerant, call me crazy, but I do not find posts at Neo-Nazi message boards to be credible news sources. And that one sentence was in boldface. Considering that Neo-Nazis and white nationalists have worked so hard to spread rumors in this case, without independent corroboration, I just can’t trust the poster at Original Dissent.

    I tried hunting down the original story, but the link no longer worked, and none of the different versions of the story in question that had been published at the same time and still available on the Internet contained the sentence, “Her body was in five separate dark trash bags,” or any equivalent. That doesn’t mean that the sentence is untrue. As I reported in my American Renaissance story, the Knoxville PD has steadfastly refused to provide the causes of death or the conditions in which the corpses were found. It is my hope that my story will cause public pressure to be brought to bear on KPD Chief Sterling Owen IV, and Knox County Attorney General Randy Nichols, to finally release the autopsy reports for the victims. As I reported in my story, all I have gotten from both offices so far has been a massive stonewall.

    Some people don’t like the idea that American Renaissance reports such stories. Though they haven’t read it, they hate it. When AR editor Jared Taylor approached me in March, asking me to cover the story for him, I was honored. Unlike the haters, I’ve read dozens of issues of AR. I have compared many stories on race that either the magazine or its editor Jared Taylor, in his book, Paved with Good Intentions, and I both covered, and their stories always checked out.

    The reason AR has flourished for so long, is because when it comes to scientific research, journalism, and writing on race, it is the gold standard, and because it reports on issues such as black-on-white crime and racial differences in IQ that the socialist/communist and Republican MSM both refuse to report on, and that even allegedly conservative (read: Republican) academics refuse to do honest scholarly research on, that is, if they will research the issues at all.

    I’ve been doing the same sort of work since 1990, when I considered myself a “liberal” (before I learned that “liberal” was a euphemism for socialist or communist), and founded my short-lived New York magazine, A Different Drummer. I’d be perfectly willing to write the same material for the New York Times, Daily News, New York Post and Newsday, but they refuse to publish it. In fact, one of New York Newsday’s (RIP) editors whitelisted me back in 1991 for a letter in which I expressed the mildest, tongue-in-cheek criticism of a racist black coed he had published.

    In the moral law posited by both Kant and Rousseau, “If you desire the ends, you desire the means.” Applied to this case that means, if you desire that black-on-white crime be honestly reported, you desire the medium that will honestly report it. That means that people who say they won’t read American Renaissance’s reports on black-on-white atrocities, really don’t want to know about them, and don’t want anyone to report on them, but are too dishonest to say so. Add to that dishonesty the corruption of the Republican blogosphere, and you have people who would rather that the public read their own phony “reports” on a racist atrocity, and those of their cronies, than that they read real reporting on it.

    Imagine the roles were reversed, and I had just acted as if I had reported a major story that Malkin had spent five weeks researching and had broken nationally two days earlier, but without mentioning her at all, and instead mentioning a bunch of blogger cronies of mine who, like me, had not done any reporting on the story, or who had mixed up known facts with Internet rumors. (Of course, since the bloggers I’m variously friends or friendly with are real veteran journalists, a role reversal is hard to imagine.) Malkin would have immediately sicced her lawyer on me, and used her blog to attack me.

    Malkin is both benefiting from other reporters' work, and giving credit to her undeserving blogger cronies, who did no reporting. Why should anyone do any real reporting, if blogger divas like Malkin, Reynolds, et al., are just going to get the credit, and keep it among their cronies? Since no one seeing Malkin’s video or reading her cronies will know about Knoxville authorities’ stonewalling regarding the autopsies, he will not generate any pressure to release them. And since most of Malkin’s cronies are content to repeat Internet rumors, why should anyone bother with the time-consuming, exhausting work of newsgathering? All we need is the Internet rumor chamber.

    In the past, I have only written positively of Malkin. I held fire when she snubbed me in 2004. She wrote a blog about the Rev. Al Sharpton, in which she cited some of her cronies by name. Quality cronies, by the way, not non-reporting bloggers. (And I’m not denying that bloggers have broken stories. But when they do, they are acting as journalists, who happen to use the technical medium known as a “weblog” or “blog.” A blog is but a tool; it is only as good as the writer using it.)

    That time, though Malkin wouldn’t cite me by name, she at least linked to my October 7, 2001 Toogood Reports exposé on Sharpton, “Rudy and the Rev. Bozo.” And I did get a lot of hits off that anonymous link.

    And a couple of years ago, I did her a personal favor by keeping her out of a story that could have negatively impacted on her personally. I hadn’t even thought about that until this minute. I never expected a quid pro quo from her, but I certainly didn’t expect her to stab me in the back. As my mom always says, “No good deed goes unpunished.”

    But hey, Malkin is a diva, and I’m just working press.

    The Knoxville Horror: The Crime and the Cover-Up

    Nicholas Stix, Special to AR News, May 14, 2007

    The most complete account of the murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.


    On Saturday, January 6, 2007, Channon Christian, 21, and Christopher Newsom, 23, of Knoxville, Tennessee, went on a date from which they would never return. On their way to the home of another couple, they were carjacked and kidnapped. Over the next 24 hours they were beaten, gang-raped, tortured, and murdered.

    If Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom had been black and their killers white, everyone in America would know their names. Because they were white and their killers are black, their fate has been shrouded in a thick silence that has given rise to a host of gruesome rumors. Their story highlights the strange and twisted nature of race relations in America….

    Illegal Human Beings March Again!

    By Nicholas Stix
    Updated version.

    They want your job, your property, and your country.

    Last Tuesday, Americans again saw thousands (but at least this time, not millions) of criminals take to the streets, demanding recognition of their “right” to continue committing crimes. The criminals were supposedly also “boycotting America.”

    I am speaking, of course, of illegal immigrants, aka undocumented immigrants, aka undocumented workers, aka unauthorized migrants, aka Mexican nationals, whose number may be as high as 30 million – 22 million adults who have invaded this country since the previous mass amnesty in 1986, and as many as eight million children whom female illegal aliens have borne in this country during that time, and which have been improperly defined by the federal courts, in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment, as “American citizens.”

    In a sane, just society, upon hearing of such a massive mobilization of criminals, the authorities would mobilize virtually every local, state, and federal law enforcement officer, as well as the National Guard, bottle up all the parade routes in cities across the nation, block the side streets and, section by section, bearing plastic handcuffs, arrest all of the suspects. Reporters would show the arrests on live TV, exclaiming each time, “They got another one!” The suspects would then be bused in convoys to tent cities on the outskirts of each city, until their legal status could be determined.

    Any suspect determined to be an American citizen or lawful permanent resident alien, would be released just as soon as buses became available for non-deportation. Of course, that might take a while.

    Anyone determined to be in the country illegally, but not wanted on any criminal warrants, or previously deported, would be deported within days, after signing a letter acknowledging that being found in America at any future time would result in his immediate imprisonment as a felon, as per federal immigration law. (I am not fantasizing here; according to current federal immigration law, it is a felony for any foreign national previously deported from the U.S. to re-enter it without permission from the federal government. That the federal government has for years refused to enforce federal law is not my fault.) Anyone determined to be in the country illegally, and to have previously been deported, would immediately be imprisoned as a felon.

    “But what about their civil rights?!” critics will demand to know. They’re illegal aliens; they don’t have civil rights! “Civil rights” are the rights due citizens.

    As soon as the felon in question completed his prison sentence, he would be deported to his own nation, again as per current U.S. immigration law.

    Anyone who was determined to be in the country illegally, to have previously been deported, and to be wanted for additional crimes, would immediately be imprisoned as a felon, and bound over for trial on the additional charges. Regardless of the disposition of the additional charges, he would do hard time as an immigration felon; should he be convicted of the other charges, he would serve his sentences consecutively, not concurrently, after which, should he still be alive, he would be deported to his own nation.

    That’s the way a sane, just nation would handle things. (In Mexico, for instance, foreign nationals, including those legally there, are not permitted to demonstrate against the government. All foreign nationals who do demonstrate are arrested, imprisoned, and deported.) Of course, a sane, just society would never permit 22 million illegal adults to invade it, in the first place!

    Like last year, this year we again had law enforcement officers acting as welcoming committees, aiding and abetting the criminals, and the media acting as cheerleaders, leaving no doubt as to their loyalties.

    The traitor media started its advance work the day before, with brain-dead propaganda appealing only to members of the Hispanic supremacist-cheap labor alliance, and perhaps to dull eight-year-olds.

    Except for one new wrinkle, in “Lazy, Job-Stealing Immigrants?,” in the Washington Post, British expatriate Sebastian Mallaby stuck to the dog-eared script. He calls amnesty “immigration reform.” He insists on using the euphemisms “immigrants,” as if these were legal immigrants, and then “migrants,” as if these were Americans who had merely moved from, say, Appalachia to California in search of a better life, even though he is talking about illegals.

    Mallaby maintains that illegals are much better behaved than Americans. That must be why, if the government does not undertake mass deportations of illegals and secure the borders, in 10-20 years, every major American city will be controlled by illegal gangs.

    Dripping with condescension towards his critics, he asserts that far from stealing jobs from Americans, “economists have patiently explained for years that there is no finite ‘lump of labor’ in an economy. The presence of migrants causes new jobs to be created.”

    True enough. He speaks of factories being created that otherwise would have been set up abroad. But why on earth would anyone celebrate the opening of criminal enterprises? The owners of such factories are engaged in criminal conspiracies to break every labor, immigration, and tax law in the book. The factories provide a net negative benefit to the economy. And they refuse to employ American workers. The only people who benefit from them are the criminals who own them, and the criminals who work in them, respectively.

    And let us not forget all of the “jobs” created for illegal immigrant indentured servants by people who otherwise would be raising their own children, walking their own dogs, and mowing their own lawns.

    Mallaby observes that “undocumented immigrants are ineligible for welfare, food stamps …” but in time-honored “a-half-truth-is-a-whole-lie” fashion, does not tell the reader that they are getting these benefits, the law be damned. Fortunately, the average allegedly uneducated, non-Washington Post reader already knows that.

    Mallaby claims that “the total effect of undocumented workers on native-born Americans is roughly zero.” This is supposed to console the reader? Rather than losing his country for a mess of pottage, the average American is losing it for … nothing.

    But even that’s not true. Robert Rector has estimated that, due to the costs that illegals and their employers inflict on American taxpayers (schools, hospitals, crime, prisons, etc.), each illegal costs Americans $1 million over the cost of a lifetime, and that another mass amnesty like that sought by the Open Borders Lobby -- which includes Pres. Bush and Mallaby, among others -- which would open up programs like the Social Security Administration’s supplemental security income and social security pensions to present-day illegals, would cost us $2.5-3 TRILLION over and above any contribution the amnestied “immigrants” would have made to the fisc. (If George Bush has his way, tens of millions of illegals will tap into social security even without another mass amnesty.)

    And that’s not counting the additional billions Americans pay every year, to protect their children from public schools that illegal children have destroyed through violence and by dragging down academic standards. American parents have to variously buy overpriced homes in the increasingly rare public school districts whose schools have yet to be destroyed, or pay exorbitant private school tuition. As Elizabeth Warren and her daughter, Amelia Warren Tyagi, and Steve Sailer have reported, such additional expenditures are fueling an epidemic of bankruptcy among middle-class families with school-aged children.

    And of course, another mass amnesty would bring hundreds of millions more illegals in the wake of those amnestied.

    To my knowledge, the one new wrinkle Mallaby came up with, is the claim that immigration restrictionists say that illegals are “lazy.” I’ve never heard any restrictionist say that. So, that’s a whole lie.

    But the American-born children of illegals, who are themselves illegal, do not share their parents’ work ethic or docility. The children are often lazy, are predominantly hateful, and commit crimes at rates far above the American statistical norm. Imitating the worst qualities of American blacks, they refuse to patiently work their way up the ladder of social mobility, and despise everything that America stands for. Meanwhile, they demand that everything that law-abiding Americans have worked so hard for be taken from them and given to the second-generation illegals.

    Mallaby, who is also a honcho at the Council on Foreign Relations and has a 23-word-long title, doesn’t tell the reader of the CFR’s agenda to dissolve America into a North American Union with Canada and Mexico. He tries to inoculate himself from criticism by tarring all critics as “demagogues and nativists.” (So my title, “demagogue and nativist,” is only three words long. Ouch!)

    Hey, Sebastian, you forgot to add “racists”!

    Well, Detroit News columnist Amber Arellano didn’t forget to play the race card. Also writing on Monday, in “Race Forms Ugly Underbelly of Immigration Debate,” Arellano puts her anti-white racism front and center.

    “Already I can hear the backlash, and it makes me wonder:
    “If today's immigrants were from white European countries, would the anti-immigration backlash be so ferocious? [She forgot to say “illegal”!]

    “Of course not.

    “Race and ethnicity make-up [sic] the ugly underbelly of the immigration debate that no one likes to talks about.”

    Arellano’s condemnation of white American citizens as “racists” and her abuse of the cliché of an anticipated racist “backlash” are supposed to terrify whites, and get them saying, defensively, “But we’re not racists! Some of our best friends are …,” so that they won’t dare take the offensive, and condemn her for her own racism.
    Note that Arellano’s photograph depicts a comely woman as white as I am.

    Arellano has only racial intimidation to offer:

    “Instead, anti-immigrant complainers wrap their arguments around assimilation and citizenship -- largely nonissues -- when what they're really upset about is the fact that today's newcomers are overwhelmingly non-European and brown.”

    Assimilation and citizenship are non-issues? Such nonsense is what comes of not being a journalist, but rather a professional “Latina,” who was hired and is paid to be racist.

    And then the big day arrived. CNN called Tuesday “Immigration Day,” and denigrated the citizenship test, comparing it to a “TV quiz show.” Between 1 and 2 p.m. alone, pretty, lefty CNN airhead, Soledad O’Brien, betrayed her cheerleader status in no less than three ways. She said, “You see a day with a half day of school, coincidentally.”

    That was no “coincidence”; school officials cut the school day short, so that they could send their propagandized charges out to support the criminals, while protecting themselves against charges of criminal behavior.

    (In spring 2006, public school officials across the country were guilty variously of of obstruction of justice, of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and of acting as accomplices to trespassing and theft, when they illegally led students out of school during school hours, and took them to other schools to vandalize property, steal state flags, turn the American flag upside down, and hoist the Mexican flag on school flagpoles above the Stars and Stripes. To my knowledge, not one of the criminal “educators” was reprimanded, let alone fired or prosecuted. See the section “Bilingualism and Reconquista” in this newly published report.)

    O’Brien had an Irishman on camera, who demanded legalization and full rights for all illegals – translated into English, that’s amnesty. (Full disclosure: Like O’Brien, I am part Irish.)

    Someone needs to whisper in O’Brien’s (and Arellano’s) ear that opponents of illegals do not give a damn if a few thousand of them are Irish. Apparently, she (and Arellano) thinks that if white Americans see a white illegal face, they’ll have a racial chauvinist epiphany and say, “Oh, my God! There are white illegals, too! Let’s legalize them all! Who cares if it means the legal, economic, and political destruction of America! Let’s help the white people!”

    O’Brien also spoke of countries such as “Honduras and Puerto Rico,” saying that last year people tended to see illegal aliens as only Mexicans (perhaps because the majority are!), and that this year, organizers were seeking to diversify the demonstrators.

    Oops! Someone needs to whisper in O’Brien’s ear that Puerto Rico is not a country, but a part of America. Thus, Puerto Ricans cannot be immigrants in America, let alone illegal immigrants, because they are all American citizens by birth. (In their case, one actually can speak of people “migrating” from the island to the mainland.) Like it says in the classic Bernstein-Sondheim song, “Puerto Rico’s in America!”

    (Media and Olympics officials have for years perpetuated the fiction, according to which Puerto Rico is a sovereign nation. Every year during baseball’s All-Star game, Hispandering sportscaster Tim McCarver lists Puerto Rican players as a separate nationality, along with real nations like the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Japan and South Korea, and Olympics officials have even created a “Puerto Rican” team for this fictional country.)

    O’Brien tried to give the appearance of balance by interviewing an Hispanic woman from an Hispanic-American organization opposed to amnesty. O’Brien asked the woman if she didn’t feel sympathy for illegals that have American-born children who are “citizens.” The woman said, “No.”

    For those who would argue that in calling for sympathy for criminals, O’Brien was playing Devil’s advocate, that argument falls flat, since it would require that she also play Devil’s advocate with amnestisiacs, something she never did while I was watching.

    While I was out, my wife saw another alleged reporter at CNN, a white guy, speak to an illegal in New York who has sired eight illegal children during his time ‘living in the shadows’ here. The illegal complained that the law does not permit him to go back to his country, to visit his family. Instead of playing Devil’s advocate, and pointing out that the man chose to break the law and may return home anytime he wishes, the Hispandering reporter told the audience that this is a case of the law keeping families apart.

    Organizers helped out their media sycophants this year, by bringing in tons of American flags, large and small.

    Back at CNN’s Atlanta headquarters, an anchorwoman spoke of “More National Guard troops on the border, which might cause more tensions,” without explaining why the Guard should “cause” more tensions or why she was insinuating that America does not have the right to protect her own borders. CNN unveiled its new, pro-criminal slogan: “Immigration Nation.”

    The Chicago Tribune also had ongoing puff coverage, with the requisite heart-tugging human interest stories, such as the one provided by alleged reporter Sara Olkon of a wheelchair-bound, octogenarian Mexican lady.

    11:28 AM: Guadalupe Vazquez, 80, came to Union Park in a wheelchair, with help from her son. A U.S. citizen since 1967, the Mexican native brought a corn tortilla filled with beans and fried eggs, water and an orange. She planned to make a day of it.

    “‘It's important for me because I am Latina and I want to support my brothers and sisters,’ Vazquez said in Spanish. ‘They are suffering. Their families are being separated over paper.’”

    Over forty years here, and she still hasn’t bothered to learn English? How did she ever pass the citizenship test, in the first place? And note that she considers foreign criminals, not law-abiding Americans, her “brothers and sisters.” But even speaking Spanish, she’s got the talking points down cold. “Paper,” indeed.

    “[Vazquez] wore a large gold Cross necklace and walking shoes. She said she hoped to walk at least part of the march. "More than anything I feel it in my heart," she said of her desire to demonstrate for immigrants' rights.”

    That’s illegal immigrants’ rights, Ms. Olkon.

    Olkon also provided a pulpit for Ethiopian taxi driver Derege Abebe, 37, in Chicago now for 21 years. "People who work very hard all their life -- just because they don't have no paper? They should have a chance. They deserve to live and work in peace."

    What about Americans’ right to live and work in peace, Mr. Abebe?

    (I identify people like Sara Olkon as “alleged reporters” based on the principle of the presumption of innocence. I am allowing for the admittedly unlikely possibility that any one of them will say, “I’m not a reporter, I’m really just a propagandist.”)

    In Los Angeles, some of the demonstrators turned violent, pelting policemen with rocks and bottles, but that wasn’t the news that a CBS/AP joint communiqué reported. “Cop Tactics At Immigration Rally Draw Ire; L.A. Police Seen Firing Rubber Bullets Into Crowds That Included Children,” reported that it was the LAPD that became violent and assaulted the rioters, er demonstrators. Under the new dispensation, it’s not enough to romanticize criminals as demonstrating for their “rights”; one must also criminalize the good guys. (Note, in this regard, the federal government’s habit of persecuting Border Patrol agents for doing their jobs.

    Initially, LAPD Chief William Bratton was marching in tune with CBS/AP, denouncing his own men, while holding fire from the rioters.

    “Police Chief William J. Bratton said Wednesday some of the police tactics to clear immigration protesters from a park were ‘inappropriate,’ as numerous news videos showed officers striking people with batons and firing rubber bullets into crowds that included children.”

    Bratton was quoted as saying, “Quite frankly, I was disturbed at what I saw.”
    The chief had no words of praise or support for the officers that were wounded in the attack. That part didn’t disturb him.

    Nice touch about the children, CBS/AP. Whoever wrote that would be quite comfortable working as a La Raza press spokesman.

    The anonymous writer’s implication – like that of Chief Bratton – was that thugs hiding behind children may do what they will to policemen, but the cops may not do anything in response. Is this America or the territories in Israel?

    And what the hell kind of people take toddlers and infants to a criminal demonstration, anyway?

    AP reporter Peter Prengaman wrote,

    “March organizers had long predicted lower turnouts, blaming stepped-up raids, frustration that Congress hasn't passed immigration reform and an effort by many groups to shift their focus from street mobilizations to citizenship and voter registration drives.”

    As for the “frustration” factor, that was supposed to explain the massive turnout last year. And “voter registration drives” is a code phrase for organized voter fraud. Telling the story of voter fraud by illegal immigrants is apparently yet another of those jobs that Americans don’t want to do.

    Since the L.A. mini-riot, the media are seeking to turn it into a Hispanic version of the Rodney King Hoax. In 1991, the media manufactured a case of police brutality against drunken black speeder Rodney King, by showing only an edited version of the videotape taken of King’s confrontation with police that showed them hitting King with their batons, while cutting out the earlier part of the tape, in which King, after refusing to submit to verbal orders to surrender, and getting up after being tasered with 50,000 volts, charged the police officers at the scene.

    Oddly enough, although even Hispanic amnesty activists admit that the police were assaulted, none of the news videos I’ve been able to find show that part of the incident. They show only police using force against non-violent bystanders. More Rodney King video-style editing may be at work.

    Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa alias Tony Villar, who in college was the president of the UCLA chapter of the irredentist, racial supremacist organization, MEChA, itself a leading light in the Reconquista movement, has turned up the heat on the LAPD.

    After racist Hispanic pols responded to Bratton’s opportunism by screaming for his scalp, Bratton realized that sacrificing his officers will not save his own job, and is now defending them.

    And just so there was no confusion as to where the national loyalties of NBC’s Houston affiliate lie, their cameraman covering that city’s demonstration by illegals flew the Mexican flag on his camera.

    In a letter by VDARE.com reader Don Stewart, which was published last Monday, Stewart asks,

    I wonder if the plan to Boycott America also includes not giving birth to their 'jackpot' babies, not driving while drunk, not accepting welfare payments, not using food stamps, not dealing drugs, not murdering, stealing or raping, not attending government schools, not buying homes using government financing, not clogging our court system, not sending remittances to Mexico, not breaking our laws by being here and not insisting that we speak Spanish?


    Stewart’s question is, of course, rhetorical.

    Americans have become increasingly frustrated at lawless, treasonous lawmakers, judges, and chief executives, not to mention their accomplices among “legitimate businessmen,” “educators,” and “journalists.” As the wish of loyal Americans that the law be enforced is ignored, their nation slips away. What must be done?

    Clearly, faxes to congressmen are not enough. Massive demonstrations are necessary. The demand that Pres. Bush be impeached for his attempts to amnesty the illegals is necessary. Non-violent civil disobedience is necessary. And Americans are going to have to begin exercising their legal right to effect citizens’ arrests of illegals.

    The Reality of Girl Power in Reconquista America

    By Nicholas Stix

    VDARE.com just published a heart-breaking letter from a lawyer about the illegal immigrant invasion’s destruction of a little American girl’s life. Her divorced parents had agreed in writing that she would attend a certain public school, but the school had in the meantime suffered an illegal immigrant takeover. An excerpt follows.

    The issue: The mother now wants to pull the daughter out of the school and enroll her elsewhere.

    The mother nervously approaches the judge to make her pitch. Hands shaking and voice quavering, she explains that the girl is suffering terribly at this school because of the foreign environment.

    "Nobody there even speaks English, your honor," the woman explains, hastening to add that "I don't mean that in a prejudiced way at all. I'm not prejudiced. But it's just a different culture, and my daughter is being destroyed as a person. She's not herself anymore, acting in ways she never used to. She's wetting herself."



    Needless to say, the judge was worthless.

    Had the mother been a hustler promoting the latest sex hoax (“gender wage discrimination”; “date rape”; “domestic violence on Super Bowl weekend”; “Duke rape”; etc.), feminists would have flocked to her defense. But unfortunately, she was trying to protect a defenseless girl from very real abuse. Feminists have no interest in that sort of thing.

    The Myth of Special Order 40?

    After my April 6 VDARE column, “LAPD: ‘We Don’t Get Into’ Immigration Status Of Christmas Story Director’s Killer” appeared, I received the following letter from an L.A. reader who goes by “Smitty.”

    __________________________________________________________________
    The Myth of Special Order 40

    Actually Special Order 40 wasn’t created to protect illegal immigrant criminals or criminals who happen to be illegal immigrants but only illegal immigrants who weren’t committing any other crimes other than “Ilegal Entry”. All those aliens arrested for serious misdemeanors, multiple misdemeanors and felonies are supposed to be identified and turned over the INS.

    Special Order 40 was never intended to protect criminals who also happened to be illegal immigrants, Special Order 40 is being currently ignored because our Mayor is a Mexican American and former immigrant gang-member, Mayor Villaraigosa even had “gang tattoos” at one time and no doubt had a criminal record (now sealed by our Mexican dominated criminal & molester friendly legislature) -before he became a commie teacher’s union lobbyist, legislator and finally Mayor of LA.

    Read the text and original order signed by Chief Gates here http://keepstuff.homestead.com/Spec40orig.html

    Special Order 40 specifically states:

    1. “Officers shall not initiate police action with the objective of discovering the alien status of a PERSON. Officers shall not arrest nor book persons for violation of Title 8, section 1325 of the United States Immigration code. (illegal Entry)”

    2. Alien Arrest Information-Notification. When an undocumented alien is booked for multiple misdemeanor offenses, a high grade misdemeanor or a felony offense, or has been previously arrested for a similar offense, the arresting officer shall:

    • Telephonically notify the Headquarters Section Desk Officer, Detective Headquarters Division of the arrest, the arrestee’s name, booking number, charge and location booked.

    • Mark the arrest face sheet “Undocumented Alien.

    3. Detective Headquarters Division, Headquarters Section-Responsibilities. The Headquarters Section Desk Officer, Detective Headquarters Division, upon notification that an undocumented alien has been arrested for multiple misdemeanor offenses, a high grade misdemeanor or a felony offense, or as been arrested for the same offense a second time, shall:

    • Record the information provided in the DHD Undocumented Alien Log.

    Notify the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service via teletype of the arrest of the individual.

    • Forward daily all Arrest Reports marked “Undocumented Alien” to the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service.


    4. Area / Division Records Unit-Responsibility. Area/division records clerks shall forward one copy of each Arrest Report marked “Undocumented Alien” to Detective Headquarters Division.

    So please don’t propagate the myth of Special Order 40, there’s no legal justification for LAPD’s current policies regarding illegal alien criminals.

    FYI The Myth of Special Order 40 'gross vehicular manslaughter' is a felony under CA law http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/appndxa/penalco/penco191_5.htm
    191.5
    (a) Gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice aforethought, in the driving of a vehicle, where the driving was in violation of Section 23140, 23152, or 23153 of the Vehicle Code, and the killing was either the proximate result of the commission of an unlawful act, not amounting to a felony, and with gross negligence, or the proximate result of the commission of a lawful act that might produce death, in an unlawful manner, and with gross negligence.

    (c) (1) Except as provided in subdivision

    (d), gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated in violation of subdivision (a) is punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for 4, 6, or 10 years.

    My response follows.

    Dear Smitty,

    Thanks very much for writing, and for sending along the materials and links regarding S.O. 40.

    And yet, while thanks to you I know much more about S.O. 40 than I previously did, I fail to see how I am propagating “the myth of Special Order 40.”

    Your position appears to be, “If only the LAPD had properly enforced S.O. 40, we wouldn’t be in this predicament.” But the regulation sowed the seeds of its own destruction. By prohibiting officers from inquiring into apparent foreign nationals’ immigration status, it encouraged illegals to flock to L.A. And the more illegals concentrated in the city, the more pressure they and their American citizen allies were bound to bring to bear upon the LAPD not to even follow S.O. 40.

    Regards,

    Illegal Human Beings March … Again!

    By Nicholas Stix


    Today, Americans are again witnessing millions of criminals taking to the streets, and demanding recognition of their “right” to continue committing crimes. I am speaking, of course, of illegal immigrants, aka undocumented immigrants, aka undocumented workers, aka unauthorized migrants, aka Mexican nationals, whose number may be as high as 30 million – 22 million adults who have invaded this country since the previous mass amnesty in 1986, and at least eight million children whom illegal alien women have borne in this country during that time, and which have been improperly defined by the federal courts, in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment, as “American citizens.”

    In a sane, just society, upon hearing of such a massive mobilization of criminals, the authorities would mobilize virtually every local, state, and federal law enforcement officer, as well as the National Guard. They would bottle up all main thoroughfares in cities across the nation, block the side streets and, section by section, bearing plastic handcuffs, arrest all of the suspects. Reporters would show the arrests on live TV, celebrating each time, “They got another one!” The suspects would then be bused in convoys to tent cities on the outskirts of each city, until their legal status could be determined.

    Anyone determined to be an American citizen or lawful permanent resident alien, would be released just as soon as buses became available for non-deportation. Of course, that might take a while.

    Anyone determined to be in the country illegally, but not wanted on any criminal warrants, and never to have been previously deported, would be deported within days, after signing a letter of acknowledgement that he understands that being found in America at any future time will result in his immediate imprisonment as a felon, as per federal immigration law. (I am not fantasizing here; according to current federal immigration law, it is a felony for any foreign national previously deported from the U.S. to re-enter it without permission from the federal government. That the federal government has for years refused to enforce its own laws, is not my fault.) Anyone determined to be in the country illegally, and to have previously been deported, would immediately be imprisoned as a felon.

    “But what about their civil rights?!” critics will demand to know. They’re illegal aliens; they don’t have civil rights! “Civil rights” are the rights due citizens. As soon as the felon in question completes his prison sentence, he will be deported to his own nation of origin.

    Anyone who is determined to be in the country illegally, to have previously been deported, and to be wanted for additional crimes, would immediately be imprisoned as a felon, and bound over for trial on the additional charges. Regardless of the disposition of the additional charges, he would do hard time as an immigration felon; should he be convicted of the other charges, he will serve his sentence consecutively, not concurrently, after which, should he still be alive, he would be deported to his own nation.

    That’s the way a sane, just nation would handle things. Of course, a sane, just society would never have permitted 30 million illegals to get away with invading it, in the first place!

    Like last year, this year we can expect law enforcement officers to again act as welcoming committees, aiding and abetting the criminals, and the media to again act as cheerleaders, leaving no doubt as to their biases. CNN is calling today “Immigration Day,” and denigrating the citizenship test, comparing it to a “TV quiz show.” Pretty, lefty CNN airhead Soledad O’Brien had an Irish illegal on camera, who demanded legalization and full rights – i.e., amnesty. She also spoke of countries such as “Honduras and Puerto Rico,” saying that last year people tended to see illegal aliens as Mexican (perhaps because the majority are!), and that this year, organizers are seeking to diversify the demonstrators.

    Oops! Someone has to whisper in O’Brien’s ear that Puerto Rico is not a country, but a part of America. Thus, Puerto Ricans cannot be immigrants, let alone illegal immigrants, because they are all American citizens by birth. Someone also needs to whisper in her ear that opponents of illegals do not give a damn that a few thousand of them are Irish. Apparently, she thinks that if white Americans see a white illegal face, they’ll have a racial chauvinist epiphany, and say, “Oh, my God! There are white illegals, too! Let’s legalize them all! Who cares if it means the end of America’s legal, economic, and political systems! Let’s help the white people!”

    Organizers have also helped out their media sycophants this year, by bringing in tons of American flags, large and small.

    And they can again count on the media to refuse to report on the criminals’ vandalism of American property and assaults on American citizen-critics whose civil rights the media hold in contempt.

    Back at CNN’s Atlanta base, an anchorwoman speaks of “More National Guard troops on the border, which might cause more tensions,” without explaining why the Guard should “cause” more tensions or why she is insinuating that America does not have a right to protect her own border. CNN has gone from speaking of “a nation of immigrants” to “Immigration Nation.”

    The Chicago Tribune has ongoing puff coverage, with heartfelt profiles of wheelchair-bound, octogenarian Mexican ladies.

    Reader Don Stewart sent a letter to VDARE.com, which was published last night.

    I wonder if the plan to Boycott America also includes not giving birth to their 'jackpot' babies, not driving while drunk, not accepting welfare payments, not using food stamps, not dealing drugs, not murdering, stealing or raping, not attending government schools, not buying homes using government financing, not clogging our court system, not sending remittances to Mexico, not breaking our laws by being here and not insisting that we speak Spanish?


    Stewart’s question was, of course, rhetorical.

    Americans have become increasingly frustrated at lawless, treasonous lawmakers, judges, and chief executives, not to mention lawless businessmen and treasonous “educators” and “journalists.” Their wishes that the law be enforced are ignored, as their nation slips away. What must be done?

    Clearly, faxes to congressmen are not enough. Massive demonstrations are necessary. Non-violent civil disobedience is necessary. And Americans are going to have to begin exercising their legal right to effect citizens’ arrests.

    We will know that we are making progress, if on next “Immigration Day,” millions of thousands of Americans confront the criminals, and start taking their country back. The Americans would need to break into the march lines, make citizens arrests, and force policemen to choose their allegiances: To America’s laws and citizens, or to foreign criminals and their American accomplices.
