June 27, Atlanta
Anti-borders mob in Atlanta demands ICE be dismantled, blocks city intersection and all but one of them see charges dismissed.
Last month, there was yet another angry illegal alien lobby march in Atlanta demanding open borders. I wrote it up HERE but had to leave just before it ended. A Local TV report HERE tells us that four of the 50-70 protestors were arrested. I followed up with APD and Municipal Court yesterday to see what happened to the people who were allowed to block traffic in the middle of the day while screaming at federal officers and while Atlanta police looked on.
Below are the names of and disposition information on the four street screamers who were finally arrested by APD after illegally blocking an city entire intersection adjacent to ICE headquarters and federal immigration court for about ninety minutes. All were all booked and charged with ‘Pedestrian in the Road‘ on June 27, 2016. The small group of anti-American protestors started out at the state Capitol with a march demanding an end to immigration enforcement. They had communist monitors to insure the event went according to plan.

Rep. Carter should support bill making English our official language
In our “press one for English” politically-correct environment, far too few Americans realize that unlike most nations, the United States has no official language. We assume that Republican Rep. Buddy Carter is aware of that sad fact.
Pro-English constituents should ask Mr. Carter when he is home from the Washington, D.C., bubble why he has not signed on to co-sponsor HR 997, “the English Unity Act of 2015” which establishes English as the official language of the United States.
H.R. 997 requires naturalization ceremonies and most official functions of the U.S. government to be conducted in English. This important legislation introduced in February of last year also declares that all citizens should be able to read and understand generally the English language text of U.S. laws.
Does Rep Carter have an objection to the nation being bound by an official language? We hope not. A common language is the most unifying force known throughout history. And most of us can see the severe and dangerous lack of unity in our multi-language nation. If people can talk to each other, they can find commonality on most other matters.
It is difficult to imagine that a negative position on official English would increase support for any Republican Georgia politician who ran as “a conservative.”
We hope Rep. Carter is given an opportunity to explain his position on official English and his apparent reluctance to help pass this important official English bill, HR 997.

Press Graves on English language bill
In our “press one for English” politically-correct environment, far too few Americans realize that unlike most nations, the United States has no official language. We assume that Republican Rep. Tom Graves is aware of that sad fact.
Pro-English constituents may want to take advantage of the July 4 break for Congress and ask Mr. Graves while he is home from the Washington, D.C., bubble why he has not signed on to co-sponsor HR 997, “the English Unity Act of 2015.” This important legislation was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives in February of last year.
Does Graves have an objection to the nation being bound by an official language? We hope not. A common language is the most unifying force known throughout history. If people can talk to each other, they can find commonality on most other matters.
It is difficult to imagine that this never came up in the primary race or that a negative position on official English would increase support for any Republican politician who ran as “a conservative.”
We hope Rep. Graves is given an opportunity to explain his position on official English and his apparent reluctance to help pass this important bill, HR 997.

Writer threatens ‘no peace’ for Smyrna, Cobb County
In numerous articles during the past year since this police-involved fatal shooting, the MDJ reported that the GBI, Cobb Police and DOJ have investigated this case and determined the shooting was justified. That is totally inaccurate as all local agencies were charged with investigating the case and presenting the results of the investigation — the evidence — to the district attorney, without any determination of justification, or not. The district attorney’s office then also conducted its own investigation and all of this evidence — over 1,300 pages of it, including multiple videos and witness testimonies — were condensed into a 30-minute presentation by the district attorney to the grand jury — the only body in this chain charged to determine whether there should be a criminal indictment, and with that limited time and information presented to them, they made a determination not to indict. That was the only agency or body which made any determination.
Having reviewed that body of evidence, along with other concerned citizens, including attorneys, it is clear to this writer, to even a lay person, that there was no way anyone or any group of citizens, like those comprising the grand jury, could effectively evaluate the mountains of evidence in thirty minutes time in order to render a fair decision and determination. Of course, the district attorney knew this, so his impartiality must be questioned, and therefore there must be a new independent special prosecutor and a new grand jury empaneled.
Failing this solution, I, along with other concerned individuals and organizations in this community, will be forced to try this and related cases in the streets and courts of public opinion, which we will continue to do through many avenues, echoing the words of the millennial youth and civil rights movements, “No justice, No peace” — if there is no justice in this case, there will be no peace for Smyrna and Cobb. As a parent of sons and daughters like Nicholas Thomas, I will not have peace nor will I rest until Officer Owens is off our streets, and, as a citizen of this county, I will not have trust in our justice system until the cover up of his wrong doing is ended.

Anti-borders mob in Atlanta demands ICE be dismantled
Yesterday, a coalition of about 70 anti-borders leftists calling itself the “Georgia Not1More coalition” staged a downtown Atlanta protest/street-scream/march that began at the Georgia Capitol and eventually took-over an entire intersection adjacent to Immigration and Customs Enforcement ( ICE ) offices on Ted Turner Drive. They illegally blocked traffic from about 11:00 AM to around 12:30 PM.
According to the ‘Not1More’ group, they are “calling on the Obama Administration to dismantle ICE and put a moratorium on deportations now.”
This writer and others watched as Atlanta police seemingly aided the mob by using a police cruiser to stop public vehicle access to the blocked intersection. The Atlanta Police Department did nothing to interfere with the chaos for about 90 minutes, until they finally broke up the mob scene. We hear there were some arrests, as some chained themselves to ladders in the middle of the street and apparently refused to migrate down and off the asphalt.
Uniformed U.S Department of Homeland Security officers watching from the sidewalk volunteered that they had no jurisdiction on the street blockage. Left unsaid was the fact that illegal aliens were angrily and defiantly shouting their illegal alien status literally in the federal officer’s faces. “ We aren’t leaving!” “Stop Separating Families!” “No justice, no peace! – “Dismantle ICE!” And “Un-documented and Unafraid!” and “NOT ONE MORE DEPORTATION!” they screamed.
Many in the MSM describe this as “hiding in the shadows.”
One can only imagine the bargaining between the leftist organizers and the mayor’s office: ”We demand to protest for three hours with out any of your pigs oppressing us!…” Mayor’s staff: “No, too long, but we will give you an hour and a half, then release any arrestees after four hours. No charges, no court date. No fine…”
All the usual suspects
From their website we can see a list of the members of the ‘Georgia Not1More coalition’: Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights ( GLAHR ), Southerners On New Ground (SONG), Project South, Atlanta Jobs with Justice, US Human Rights Network, Southern Poverty Law Center ( SPLC ), Georgia WAND, Racial Action Justice Center, Coalicion de Lideres Latinos-CLILA, National Day Laborer Organizing Network ( NDLON ), Southeastern Immigrant Rights Network (SEIRN), Women Watch Afrika, Metro Atlanta Democratic Socialists of America, Georgia Detention Watch, GA Moral Mondays, and American Friends Service Committee, Atlanta.
As usual for such occasions, two representatives from the communist National Lawyers Guild were there monitoring and taking copious notes. One of them can be seen in the day-glow-green ball cap.
The hateful, anti-American shrieking and the anti-borders victimhood was nothing new, but I did learn a couple of things yesterday. If you want to try to get a comment from Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed’s office, you must be on a pre-approved email list. And that even if there are at least two pro-enforcement Americans present, some reporters only interview the illegal alien handlers and show only one side of the “immigration debate.”
In case it doesn’t make the “news,” Georgia has more illegal aliens than Arizona and ranks number seven in the nation among states in that population. And as at today’s anti-borders rally, English is an optional language in the Peach State.
Seeing pro-enforcement Americans at their carefully choreographed events enrages the illegal aliens and sometimes results in amusing moments. This writer received an unintentional “endorsement” of sorts yesterday; one of the street screamer’s handlers used her bullhorn to shout to the crowd “No More Deportations! No More D.A. Kings’!” And “D.A. King is the face of ICE in Georgia!…” ( Video here if you want to get the feel of the transformed America brought to us by the open borders folks. )
This shout out is no doubt a reference to this writer’s position as president of the pro-enforcement Dustin Inman Society.
They are organized and funded well-enough to have pre-arranged an online viewing tool and sent out an email link to the live video about ten minutes after having arrived at the intersection where the ICE offices are located. So, if you were on the illegal alien lobby’s email list, you could have watched the entire street-screamer event from the air-conditioned comfort of your own home or office.
