Nicky And Nightingale

Illegal immigration was a significant issue in the election in November, and perhaps the two most colorful California characters in the debate were Nicandra Diaz Santillan and Chelene Nightingale.  As you may recall, the latter asserted that the President is an illegal alien, and the former wailed about her journey to becoming an unemployed illegal alien.

Well, it's been several months since Californians went to the polls and reaffirmed their faith in the leadership of the Democratic Party.  Where are these two now?


When questioned on national television as to what actions would be taken against Nicky Diaz (who burst onto the scene when she sobbed her tale of employment and dismissal by GOP gubernatorial candidate, Meg Whitman), Department of Homeland Security Chief, Janet Napolitano, said she wasn't sure. Well, four months later, we appear to have an answer:  Not any.

Not only is Nicky Diaz not facing prosecution by the federal government for unauthorized employment, fraud or utilization of forged documents, she's preparing to be hailed as a hero, in Los Angeles.

Angelica Salas and her outfit, CHIRLA, will be honoring Ms. Diaz, whom that organization describes as an "immigrant worker advocate," along with others, including recently retired Cardinal Roger "Child Molestation Enabler" Mahoney (  Apparently, as she does not have to concern herself about being apprehended by immigration authorities, Nicky now spends a portion of her post-election days fighting for a California Domestic Workers Bill of Rights (


Once the California primary elections were concluded, American Independent Party gubernatorial candidate, Chelene Nightingale, pretty much had the position of immigration law enforcement to herself.  However, she may best be remembered, not for her advocacy to secure America's borders, but for concerns she voiced on the campaign trail about the alliance between the Rothschilds and the Bilderberg Group, chemtrails being seeded in American skies, and learning the truth about 9/11.

As she did not win the election in November, she never got to follow through on her campaign pledge to confront Barack Obama about his immigration status (, however, she apparently did not abandon her effort to become California's Governor.  In fact, it appears that she believes she is the Governor of California ... or, at least, the Republic of California.

A video recently surfaced that depicts Ms. Nightingale introducing another speaker, wherein she is described as Governor, California Republic ( From what the staff at can piece together, it seems that Chelene has become involved with a collection of folks that includes Ken Cousens. Mr. Cousens, who is praised by his admirers as a legal scholar, is of the opinion that the United States Federal Government is invalid as it has been operating in violation of Constitutional principles.  He states that this unlawful "corporation" has been operational since 1791, and that its claim to power is illegitmate.  Consequently, he appears to have taken steps to form another government, The Republic for the united States of America (, of which Chelene Nightingale is a part.

While Ms. Nightingale is purportedly California's Governor, the presidency is now claimed by a man named Tim Turner (James Timothy Turner). Prior to ascending to the Office of the Chief Executive, Mr. Turner earned a niche following on the internet by making presentations wherein he advised distressed homeowners that they can avoid mortgage foreclosures by taking "legal" actions that, apparently, include filing liens against judges and proclaiming one's status as a "free man." (

This "Republic" outfit had been selling National ID cards and "Travel Warrants" over the internet until, the organization's website reports, some former members made off with the ID card machines and payments made by people who tried to buy the cards.

Not allowing such pitfalls to interrupt her plans, however, Chelene made one of her key initial appearances as Governor, earlier this month, at a Denny's in Orange County. (

Anyone wishing to join Ms. Nightingale in pledging her allegiance to this "alternative government" of the U.S., may find application papers for membership/citizenship at .

Laws Don't Apply To Us - Part III

Good news, if you're an illegal alien in Southern California!  Your unlawful existence in this part of the country just got even easier, thanks to ever-expanding sanctuary city policies in Los Angeles. More specifically, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck substantially reduced the chances that you'll be prevented from driving around uninsured and without a license.

How did this come to pass, you ask?  Simple, a bunch of pro-illegal alien cheerleaders hollered about discrimination and the Chief promptly changed the rules for impounding vehicles driven by unlicensed drivers who get nabbed at DUI/License checkpoints (L.A. Times story -

Why would a career cop do this?  After all, isn't it illegal to drive an automobile if you don't have a license and insurance?  Yes, but the reality is this -- Charlie Beck is a whore. And he is a whore as a matter of necessity. Anyone who occupies his position is going to jump when the Mayor of L.A. instructs him to do so.  This situation is the result of the reforms that were put in place after the Rodney King riots. The Chief of the LAPD essentially serves at the whim of the mayor, and Antonio Villaraigosa was a hardcore Chicano activist during his college days.  He no more wants illegals to feel uncomfortable in L.A. than he wants to seriously address the monster budget deficit he created during first term as Mayor of Los Angeles.

Bottom line, Los Angeles has the largest population of illegal aliens in the country for major reasons.  And chief among them is that many laws really just don't apply to the undocumented in this city (previous article about legal double standards in L.A. for the undocumented - It takes more than willing employers (L.A.'s got plenty), a liberal minded populace (L.A. has a large population of people who identify as progressives), close proximity to Mexico, and more Spanish language TV and radio stations than you can shake a stick at, to build the largest illegal alien population in the country.  L.A. has done it, however, to the extent that no other area in the U.S. comes close to matching the number of illegals and anchor babies who reside here.

You see, for illegal immigration to flourish, lots of state and local laws that have nothing to do with immigration must go unenforced.  Otherwise, life becomes too difficult for illegal aliens and they do the unthinkable -- They leave and go somewhere else.  Well, it's not too difficult here, in the least.  In fact, it's really comfortable here for illegal immigrants, and it is designed to be that way by local officials and special interest groups (Chamber of Commerce, SEIU, United Teachers Of Los Angeles, Nat'l Day Laborer Organizing Network, etc.) that want them here.

Southern California's Immediate Future

Despite the best efforts of gamblers in Atlantic City and stock anaylysts on Wall Street, no one has mastered the skill of predicting the future with 100% accuracy.  We can, however, make educated guesses based upon trends and current statistical information.

With the release of 2010 census findings, current information is now available about America's second largest city and its outlying areas, and it's certainly not good (See )

The population in the areas east of Los Angeles has boomed, and this growth has been fueled by Latinos. And, of course, when one talks about "Latinos" and population on the west coast, that mostly equates to "illegal aliens from Mexico and Central America, former illegal aliens, and their offspring."

In short, California, with its sanctuary city policies and generous public assistance programs, has imported the marginally educated and impoverished who have been breeding like crazy, and created conditions that are chasing away middle class white folks.

Well, what do we know about these newcomers, as a group?  For starters, they earn less than other folks so they don't pay as much in taxes. Additionally, they aren't as likely to graduate from high schools and colleges as the people they are replacing, although they're far more likely to have kids earlier, more frequently, and out-of-wedlock.

Insofar as the state is concerned (aside from changing demographics), we know it's a mess.  California is broke.  We have a state deficit that is over twice the size of any other state's budget deficit.

Keeping these things in mind, the staff of (Long-time Californians and college grads, all!) sat around, shot the breeze, and tried to wrap our collective heads around the implications of all this. More specifically, what is it reasonable to expect during the next 15 or so years in our beloved southland?

Here are some of the trends we foresee.  Needless to say, this is hardly scientific, and based upon a lot of speculation.


- Private schools will be a growth industry. In roughly a generation, the Los Angeles Unified School District went from a point of state pride to a "drop-out factory" saturated no-man's land, to which middle class parents largely refuse to sentence their children. Having kids in L.A. is now roughly the same as having them in New Orleans or the United States Virgin Islands; if you're white, you shell out for private schools as a matter of necessity rather than luxury. As the same Latin American population that fueled L.A.'s boom in the 80's and 90's is spreading to the Inland Empire, there's no reason to expect we won't see the same story with public education repeat itself in the decade to come.

- The California State University system will suffer in terms of quality and reputation.  Poor and working class Hispanic kids don't usually wind up at Stanford and Cal-Berkeley.  They are often the first in their families to pursue college degrees, and they're far less likely to obtain four year diplomas than Asians and Whites.  As approximately two thirds of the Golden State's population under 18 is Hispanic, these are the folks who will arrive, in far greater numbers, with laptops and aspirations, on the campuses of our country's largest university system. Unfortunately, statistics reveal that they're more likely to require remedial Math and English courses, and successfully matriculate in much smaller numbers.  Simply put, what CSUN and Cal State L.A. have become, in terms of academics, many of the other CSU campuses will become, as well.

- Private security will be a growth industry. Haves like Have Nots at a distance and controlled.  That's how we roll here in the U.S. of A.  Suburbs evolved in our country for a reason.  Gated communities will become as common in Riverside and San Bernardino as they are in their better-known sister county to the immediate west.  Guys running around in uniforms and patrol cars make the middle class breathe easier, and always find employment when the poor get a little too close for comfort.

- The next L.A. race riot will extend east of the San Gabriel Valley. The people who fueled much of the looting and burning in the wake of the Rodney King verdict had children. A lot of those children, and illegal aliens who arrived since that time, can be found in an Inland Empire that is no longer lacking substantial population.

- State and city governments will grow even bigger.  Poor and working class minorities in the U.S. historically vote for liberal candidates. So do people reliant upon generous government services. Further, folks from Mexico and Central America come from societies where "limited government" is simply not practiced. As bad a reputation as L.A. has given local government, there's no logical reason to think what caused city bureaucracy expansion in the City of Angels won't take root in an Inland Empire that is beginning to look like L.A.

- "Social Justice" will become a commonly heard term. Currently, "social justice" (an academic buzz word for "Socialism") is heard in college classrooms where Chicano Studies, social science courses, and History are taught.  In an area of the country where more people of limited means are supplanting middle class residents, the appeal that "wealth sharing" always enjoys among Have Nots will become more pronounced.

Do you think we missed any major ones?  Drop us an e-mail or comment and let us know.

By the way, when (not "if") California requires a federal financial bailout in the next few years, if the state doesn't receive it, what is written up above goes right out the window.  If such monetary assistance is not forthcoming, lots of folks now in California are likely to be headed to a community near you.
