THE CHESTERTON PROPHECIES REVISITED
By Dave Hodges

Despite the clear messages sent by the American people in the 2010 midterm elections, Senator majority leader, Harry Reid (Nev. D), is still attempting to get the DREAM Act passed into law. Attempted amnesty has been proposed numerous times and has failed every time. Most Americans, especially naturalized Americans, still believe that their uniquely United States citizenship still means something. Surely, with over 80% of the country opposing amnesty, the bill would die a natural death, once and for all. Don’t bet on it.
It is safe to say that this bill has returned with a vengeance, albeit in a more covert format. The lame duck Marxist communists masquerading as members of the Democratic Party are determined to not let this attack on American sovereignty, culture and economics go quietly into the night
I live in Arizona where very large segments of the central corridor of the State are under the control of the Mexican drug cartels. The citizens of Pinal County, which is adjacent to metropolitan Phoenix, is under siege by these former Mexican army soldiers turned drug runners. Their penchant for violence is well documented. For example, Pinal County Deputy Louie Puroll was ambushed and shot as he tracked six drug smugglers near Casa Grande, Arizona. In Chandler, Arizona, a drug cartel rival was beheaded. Citizens have been terrorized and many of these have been victims of crime from the cartels. In a drug cartel related activity, Phoenix leads the country in kidnappings.
The lawlessness resulting from the influx of the drug cartel thugs is so bad that Arizona State Representative (elect), Jack Harper (R), is proposing state legislation to form a militia, trained by the State to interdict these thugs and subsequently turn them back. Meanwhile, in the nation’s capital, Homeland Security Chief (ironically Arizona’s former governor), Janet Napolitano, seemingly has nothing better to do than to defend the use of cancer causing porno body scanners and the fact that granny needs to be goosed by TSA officials in order to make us safe in our travels. Meanwhile, under Napolitano’s “leadership” Homeland Security has posted traveler advisory signs throughout Arizona’s Pinal and Pima Counties advising against traveling and camping in these areas due to the “human smuggling, drug transport and violent actions” by foreign criminal elements occupying these embattled areas. This is the same Janet Napolitano, while serving as Arizona’s Governor, prohibited the Arizona National Guard, while patrolling the border, to carry ammunition for their guns. In a subsequent under-publicized event, eight members of the National Guard were forced to abandon their position, near the southern Arizona town of Luke, and flee for their lives when their positions were overrun by Mexican drug cartel members.
What does the future hold for a country that refuses to protect its citizens from foreign intrusion by criminal elements? America’s future may have been foretold in G. K. Chesterton’s, The Flying Inn (1914). The book provides present day Americans with an opportunity to understand what is happening to their loss of culture and of national sovereignty. The book consists of a “fictional” account of how England had been stripped of its cultural identity. The book was written at the end of the British imperialistic period of dominance in which England had collapsed under the sheer weight of attempting to maintain its vast empire.
