The Arroyo


I saw The Arroyo last night on NewsMax television. It had been edited for duration and content, so I didn't get to see the uncut movie, but I'm buying a copy to remedy that.

With all the problems concerning Islam beating down on us like waves, and the race baiters working overtime to make a buck off that issue, it's easy to forget we still have a huge problem with illegal immigration. It doesn't help that the hedonist in the White House is all for importing as many people as he can since he knows they will vote for his party, legally or otherwise. After all, the Democrats can turn this whole country into a Third World ant heap, and the same lordly people in D.C. who caused it will still be living in mansions and taking trips to Hawaii. The fact that the rest of us will face a continuing and dramatic decline in the quality of life weighs not a whit with Barrack Hussein or his underlings and true believers.

Every one of these illegal immigrants requires federal funds to maintain. The tax payer picks up the tab for their food, housing, education, medical care, and for the additional prison population which is their primary contribution to American life. They usually do not speak our language, do not have any skills, and simply settle comfortably into the welfare culture that already exists here. The younger ones often do find lucrative employment, but it's working for the gangs and cartels. The money to pay for the whole fiasco has to be squeezed out of Americans who work, and the numbers of useless people who have to be cared for is huge and growing. The strain on the economy is enormous and this is an economy  already tottering on the edge of collapse without the additional burdens the illegals create.

The Arroyo is a privately funded movie that tries to depict the situation on the Southern border as it really is, which is why no major studio in Hollywood would touch it.  It's a low budget film, with no big name actors. However, I think they accomplished their purpose, and the movie is well done. As far as I can tell, it was not shown in any theaters, and the only television station to carry it that I can find is NewsMax.  That's a politically conservative channel that usually shows documentaries and news broadcasts, so The Arroyo being on there was something of a surprise. I'm glad they aired it, and I recognize it required a certain amount of moral courage on their part to do so.

No doubt NewsMax will get audited now, and their broadcast license may get pulled. That's how Obama and his cronies work.

  1. Nobody is coming to help. The cavalry is nowhere to be seen. Those that are supposed to be fighting for us are fighting against us because politics is more important than humanity. All we have is our family. And those like me who have most of their family thinking they are nuts for stockpiling food, water and supplies, we have only ourselves. It is all going downhill much faster than I would have thought possible.

    1. I've worked in a lot of Third World countries, and I don't want to live in one. Yet, the standard of living for the average American has been falling for years. The European countries often have a higher quality of life than we do, and if you had suggested that would ever be the case in the 1950's people would have laughed outright.

      As hard as we work to save something, and to be prepared to take care of ourselves, the government will grind us into the dust if things keep on as they are. 13% of gross federal, 6% of gross state, 7% sales tax, gas tax, energy tax, property tax, social security tax, federal health insurance tax, tag and title tax. What's left for the person who is working? And they keep bringing in more and more people who don't pay taxes but who clog up the medical system, education system, court system, and who consume vast resources from the public trough. I don't see how it can end happily.

  2. Harry - thanks for pointing out this movie. i looked it up (no wikipaedia entry, which i always find interesting when wikipaedia does not have an entry on something - it's very telling to me!) and it looks like a movie that i would definitely want to see, but probably be too afraid to see because i already know what it is going to look like. i have seen the small news coverage about this horrible US border problem, i can't believe that this is real except THAT IT IS, and i cannot fathom how it is not getting more coverage, how the PTB allows it, and i most definitely could not be one of those poor ranchers out there on their own, dealing with this problem while people in cities like DC, NY and the like have no idea what these poor people are dealing with and with absolutely no support from their government and federal law enforcement.

    how can this be really happening???? except that some of us know that this IS really happening??? it is beyond comprehension???

    i really don't know what else to say. i just cannot believe that your government is allowing, actually encouraging this. beyond comprehension.

    i feel so sorry for those ranchers and their families. and i hate with all hate possible that my solution to these poor families is to move. without any support from your government, i just don't know what else they can do. i would never recommend that they individually take a stand on their land. they are going to be wiped out, lose family members and have their lives destroyed by the scum illegals using their land for illegal drug and human trafficking.

    ugh.

    much love, Harry. your friend,
    kymber

    1. Kymber, the Democrats don't want to stop illegal immigration because these people vote , which is why the Justice Department or the Supreme Court overrule every state law which tries to ensure only citizens can vote. Somewhere in the column on the right is an article about illegals voting and it's a terrific problem for the country and a great boon for the Democrats. They want a porous border because it suits their strategy for running the county.

      The people who live down there are in trouble, but so are people all over the country. We have a county 40 miles from us that now has over 170,000 hispanics living in it. As I've said before, the business signs are in spanish, the taxi cabs race around with names like Fiesta Cabs , and vast swaths of the city there, even the police won't go into after dark. Gang bangers drive down the middle of the road in Hummers, driving people to the road shoulder. That's just going to increase all over the county.

  3. Hi Harry,
    It is available on Amazon Prime for free. I added to my Watch List last month, but I haven't had a chance to see it yet. With your recommendation, it is going to the top of the list. Maybe tonight.

  4. Mark, it's good to know it's available to more people on Amazon. I don't expect it will get much play on television or in theaters because the producers told the truth and being politically incorrect in this country guarantees no support from the establishment.

  5. Thanks Harry, I just bought the DVD from Amazon.

  6. Illegal immigration is certainly a problem. However, much of the agriculture industry thrives off of the work it provides. Few legal Americans are willing to accept the low wages that these manual labor jobs provide - it's easier and often times more lucrative to get on welfare - and there's no incentive to get off.
    It does look like a movie worth watching though.

    1. Troy, that may well be true in some parts of the country. Here though, the illegals take the jobs that low income whites and blacks used to do. For instance,there were strikes in the big agribusiness plants in North Georgia in 1988. Big business broke the strikes by bringing in Hispanics. So the blacks and whites were displaced, and that county is almost entirely Hispanic now. My own kids couldn't get jobs at McDonald's when they were teens because the owner only hired Hispanics. She said they worked hard, never asked for anything and could treat them anyway she wanted. However a person feels about that it was still hard on the kids.

  7. Mighty glad we are an island and thanks to Tony Abbot the RAN is allowed to enforce the sovereignty of our territorial waters. No illegal boats have successfully made the trip from Indonesia since Tony was elected.

    I feel for the US, if the government was serious it cannot be impossible to secure your border with Mexico, I can't imagine what it must feel like to be over run by so many illegals.

    1. I wanted to immigrate to Australia in the nineties. But when I contacted the Australian government they sent me back a nice letter, and politely told me that though I was welcome to come visit I couldn't stay because there were plenty of Australian citizens who had my skills. I was disappointed but I also admired them because they had the gumption to do what was right for their country. Same thing with Canada and I applaud their resolve even if the personal impact on my kids was negative. We are being overrun and it is having a terrible effect on us financially, socially, and in the quality of our daily lives.

    2. Unfortunately you , like most people from Western countries, tried to immigrate lawfully. You would have been an asset to Oz (although you would have had to leave a lot of your toys behind!). What burns me is that we have taken in so many "refugees" from countries like Lebanon, Iraq, Somalia etc. who have nothing in common with the heritage of our country, they arrive here and then go on social security for the rest of their lives. Not to mention the fact that they pass numerous Muslim countries on their way here where they would "fit in"a lot better than they ultimately do! There must be a reason why of all the immigrants who have come here (be they Greeks, Italians, germans etc.) only those of the muslim faith never become "Australians".

    3. When my kids tried to immigrate to Canada, the Canadians had (and still have) different sets of rules for Americans and everybody else. Americans had to employee a Canadian immigration lawyer. Japanese, Koreans, et al just had to comply with Canadian law and go through the standard process. In that case, I think it's because we are so close and so many Americans would go up there to live if they could. Whatever the case, almost all countries have different rules for different nationalities and races. I'm not sure how that squares with being good multiculturalists but that's how it is.

  8. Hey Harry, and Kymber.

    (captaincrunch)

    I have not seen the movie yet but I will.

    Just so you know I have been through that part of Arizona featured in the movie. I have lived in a West Texas and Southern New Mexico for a total of 27 years so I am kinda an expert on the 'Good, Bad and Ugly of Illegal Immigration'

    I was used to seeing Mexico everyday and I mean just about every day. I dodged illegals on highways that were crossing on foot. I have been shot at near the border. I was almost caught in the crossfire of a shoot out outside of a bar in Juarez, Mexico back in the 90's and I have a lot of crazy true stories.

    What it all boils down to is Americans are not having enough sex and reproducing like they did a hundred years ago.
    The Irish immigrants in the mid 19th century would reproduce like mad and provide the wealthy class and government with labor and money. The Italians also reproduced en masse in the early 20th century providing cheap labor and an almost infinite supply of laborers and consumers for the Industrial Revolution.

    The progressive goverments of Teddy Rosevelt got new voters and taxpayers that would fund the first world war and make the industrialist even wealthier.

    Its happening all over again. The big corporations want cheap labor. The military wants cannon fodder and the feds want the tax dollars.

    Why hire a white computer programmer for $45.000 a year (with benefits) when you can get an Indian programmer for $20.000 year with no bene's.

    Most of all they want a poor, working class that will vote for anyone that will give them free stuff.

    Iceland is looking real attractive. The women in far north latitudes are very attractive and I don't think there are any Mexicans in Iceland (its too cold) I don't think anyone will try swimming their either. Waters kinda cold too.

    I would try Scotland where my ancestors are from but the good looking redhead women are being replaced by ugly, hairy, women wearing rags on their heads.

    1. Although I know much of what you wrote is humorous in intent, I know you are also correct in a lot of your thoughts in that comment. The Caucasian birth rate is way down across the board, and demographics are changing everywhere. Israel, for example, has the problem of Israeli Arabs having a very high birthrate while Israelis do not. They may wind up with an Israel that isn't a Jewish state any longer. The Azatlan movement, which insists that Mexico must regain control over California and the Southwest, has long said they will do it through population change, rather than violence. History is bearing them out. For the first time in modern history, "people of color" outnumber whites in American public schools. All this is bound to bring a lot of change to our culture, and I'm not ready to "embrace" that though the change itself is probably inevitable.

  10. There is also the expedited 'Investor Green Card Visas' program that speeds citizenship along. It isn't just the poor and uneducated who leave the country.

    The question also is why would the rich be abandoning ship as well ? Answer - it really sucks being on that side of the border. How long can we sustain the extra burdens of infrastructure / housing / available land - not very long. Why can a species of animal stop a project, yet we allow our population to swell even greater ?

    1. That's a good question. There are positive steps we could take to limit illegal immigration, but granting blanket amnesty to them every ten years is not one of them. Clinton did it and promised it would "solve" the illegal immigration problem though he was vague about just how this would happen. Obama isn't even bothering to pretend that his "rule by edict" policy of granting amnesty to 500,000 now and establishing procedures for extending it to millions will stop illegal immigration.

      Like so many other things we talk about here, I don't see it getting any better.

  11. My husband and I differ on illegal immigration. He's like, "It's horrible in some parts of Mexico!" I'm like, "So...they can move to other parts of Mexico." I just don't want a lot of diseases coming here. But...Colorado has many of the anti vaxxers. If they travel out of the country they certainly can bring stuff back. Anti vaxxers are a big problem here to.

  12. Well, I feel sorry for the decent people who live in places where there is no hope of a decent life. I know a lot of these people just want a chance to work and better themselves. But how many can we support? I know of one young illegal in an adjacent county who is renown for being 29 years old and having eight children. The state paid for her perinatal and obgyn care, the kids receive state insurance, they live in state subsidized housing and they get to go to the local school, though the parents pay no property tax to support education. Multiply that by an estimated twenty two million illegals currently in this country, and it goes a long way towards explaining the deficit and extortionate taxes.

    As for people who don't have their kids vaccinated they put everyone at risk. I'm old enough to remember when small pox and polio were scrouges, and it was only vaccination that eradicated them.
