News & Messenger Can’t Take The Truth

By Greg L | 29 June 2009 | Manassas City, Prince William County | 32 Comments

What do Prince William County’s “Fugitive of the Week” and child rapist Marcos Danilo Reyes Banegas and recently convicted triple-murderer Anastacio Miranda Sanchez have in common?  They’re both illegal aliens.  You wouldn’t know that from reading the Manassas News & Messenger which did articles on both of these recently (see here and here) but failed to mention in either case the immigration status of these two vermin.  I guess the News & Messenger would rather avoid the whole debate on the issue of criminal illegal aliens rather than provide the public with important information that might have a significant bearing on the laws and policies our elected officials enact.  Keep ‘em dumb and happy.  Bread and circuses for the masses.

If the purpose of local newspapers simply provide entertainment, I would understand the News & Messenger leaving out factual information that might inform policy.  Their recent coverage of such earth shattering events such as Michael Jackson’s death and every circumstance surrounding that non-event would certainly lend credibility to such a statement.  If the purpose of local newspapers is to actually provide local citizens with information that they could use to make decisions about what policies citizens should be asking their elected officials to support, you’d think they’d make some mention the gang graffiti in Wellington recently, the rather impressive response of the city in dealing with that outrage, or bother inform readers that a triple murderer was an illegal alien.

No, I’m not going to go so far as to say that the News & Messenger is an entertainment-only tabloid.  They’d have to run longer stories in order to qualify for that, instead of the drive-by limited coverage they provide.  They’re just beholden to a political ideology that cannot accept the idea that gang activity connected with the illegal alien problem is happening, or that some of the most notorious murderers of late were illegal aliens.  If they actually reported information that might inform policy, and that information could be damaging to their political affiliation, well, people might actually want their elected officials to enact laws to address important problems.  They can have none of that.

This really is too bad.  Some of the folks working for the News & Messenger are good folks and don’t deserve to have their efforts turned into the fishwrap that the editorial board transforms it into.  They actually do want to report the news.  They actually do want to get in-depth on stories, but that’s not going to happen with Susan Sivilik at the helm, whose only directional inclination is to heel over hard to port on any issue.

If blogging made any money, I’d offer some of those unfortunates a gig here, but I can’t pay anybody.  Increasingly, that’s becoming the case for the News & Messenger as well, although not soon enough.

    Immigration status is RELEVANT because crimes are being committed by people who should not be here in the first place. Murder, rape, drugs, gang violence, and drunk driving would be lessened if we controlled our borders and deported illegal aliens. It’s also an amnesty issue. If illegal aliens assimilated to our culture, obeyed our laws, spoke english and paid their own way, we would already have a working immigration system. But, gee, it all starts with obeying the law. Liberals want the government to take care of the people. Conservatives want the same thing, except we want the rest of the world to rise to our standard of living so that we can all coexist as equals.

    He wasn’t from Mexico either. One would probably not associate him with being an illegal alien. When you live in an area that is over-run with Latinos and has a serious gang problem, the public should be informed whether the culprit is in this country illegally. The first assumption is the he/she is, rightfully or wrongly.

    I’m confused about when we started looking to liberal bird-cage liners for truth in the first place. Ever see these poor folks sitting the grocery stores trying to get people to buy the Manassas papers? They look like they already lost.

    I’ll bet that a major source of income for the News & Messenger is the money Kathering G. pays it to publish her drivel about community happenings in Gainesville.

    Speaking of drunk driving… http://www.lufkindailynews.com/hp/content/news/stories/2009/06/30/driver_missing.html

    My sister-in-law just recently attended the funeral of the little 4-year-old boy, one of her students, because of a Mexican national who appears to have fled back to Mexico in order to avoid being held accountable for killing three people.

    InTheNavy-my heart goes out to the families who suffered inconceivable losses. Sadly, it was due to the fact that an illegal alien broke several laws. Where is the justice? Are we to accept that this is part of their (illegal aliens) culture? Why can’t people stop clouding this issue with sentiment and acknowledge the simple truth? If that person had not been here, those people would be alive.

    …..and the leaders of our government want to provide this type of scum with U.S. citizenship after they have broken our laws and are killing and maiming our citizens in addition to destroying neighborhoods and our society. When they commit a crime, notice how fast they hightail it back to “their” country to avoid prosecution. They have no love for this country. Their only allegiance is to the the almighty dollar and what they can suck from the American taxpayer.

    Recent statements in Mexico from both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary something needs to be done. “Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the deaths of police officers, soldiers, and civilians,” she said.

    But no mention, concern or care that their refusal to stop the Massive Invasion of Illegal Aliens pouring across our borders or enforce our immigration laws that causes an estimated 25 Americans deaths per day and 10,s of thousands victims of Assault, Robberies, Rapes, Identify thief, and other assorted crimes committed by the invading horde of Illegal Aliens from Mexico on American citizens each year!

    It is a telling indictment & shows their Empathy & Compassion of our Politicians & their priorities when they express more concern over Mexicans mostly connected to the Drug trade than the murders, havoc & crimes of Illegal Aliens against American Citizens!

    Most of our Politicians in Wash. DC are wading knee deep in innocent American blood and suffering because they put Self Interest ahead of the interest of American Citizens & the future of this Nation!

    The Welfare vote for the Democrats to further their Socialist Agenda and the Slave Labor for their Pay Masters in the Chamber of Commerce & Business for the Republicans is more important to our Corrupt power mad Politicians than the lives and safety of Americans citizens!

    The Citizens of this Nation have not sacrificed with blood, sweat & tears for over 200 years & obeyed the Laws of the land, paid the taxes, and fought the wars & built this Nation to see Corrupt politicians turn this Nation into the United States of Mexico without a shot being fired, to serve their demented, nefarious goals and lust for power!

    I can’t repeat it enough: The “Toss out the Incumbents” movement has to become our mantra. We must begin imposing term limits at the ballot box, regardless of political affiliation. Political office must return to being a service, not a career.

    Great idea Johnson, and then the government bureauracy can
    run the show with rapidly changing elected leadership always
    being pushed out the door. Have states that tried term limits
    kept them? Why not? Do you have any proof that term limits
    result in better government ?

    My suggestion to support improved government is to reduce
    the practice of “gerrymandering” and have more
    competitive elections plus easily viewed transparent

    What Black Saint has stated is completely true and to the point. He is “right on” if you know what I mean. The politicians who have sold this country out by not inforcing the immigration laws and allowing millions upon millions of illegal aliens (including Obama’s auntie) to remain here are the ones we need to keep an “eye” on.

    The ones that have allowed the illegal immigrant explosion to get out of control is you, me, and your neighbor. We allow them to come in and do jobs. We hire the contractors that hire them. Your neighbor, the small business man refuses to use EVerify, and continues to employ them - saying that they are legal with a nod and a wink.

    So, we should have better immigration laws, and better border security, but if there were no employers, there would be very few illegals.

    Big Dog-
    My intent is to clean out the entrenched career politicians that have been funded by special interest groups. Term limits would reduce the opportunities for candidates and serving members to cultivate these relationships. Re-election funding becomes a moot point when you can’t be re-elected. Would that make congress more honest? To a certain extent. When time is short, outright bribery becomes the obvious choice. I’d like to see every congressman and woman have a team of FBI agents assigned to them. It’s not a perfect system, but it would keep them looking over their shoulders. Let’s face it, an honest person doesn’t fear getting caught and doesn’t mind the extra scrutiny. Of course, campaign funding should be transparent. I don’t have any proof that my ideas would work, but it’s different from what’s clearly not working.

    Black Saint-
    Keep telling the truth as you see it. I agree completely.

    Pat.Herve-
    As usual, right on the money. I’m afraid that personal greed often overrides civil harmony and the rule of law. It doesn’t mean that we all shouldn’t continue to do the right thing. People all over America are watching PWC for guidance on the illegal alien issue. What they are seeing is that when you turn the lights on, the parasites scatter.

    When I read a crime report in the paper, the immigration status of the perp is usually not relevant to the reportage. The large bulk of the stories would have to have a sentence or paragraph explaining that the suspect was a citizen of the United States. That’s not very interesting or relevant. Then you would have a much smaller proportion of stories that would state that the suspect was an illegal immigrant, which, again, is not particularly relevant. There may be certain crimes (human smuggling, slavery - see the article in the Post today) where immigration status of the perp or the victim has a bearing, but it certainly isn’t every crime report. So I don’t make much of the fact that a particular story doesn’t have an indicator of the suspect’s immigration status.

    “So, we should have better immigration laws, and better border security, but if there were no welfare, freebies, and handouts, there would be very few illegals.”

    There, I fixed it.

    You have to add “no jobs” to your list, Brian. 2Is don’t come for the benefits - there aren’t many of them. They come for the work and income. There has never been a border between a prosperous economy and a failing one where there is not a lot of illegal immigration. The fact that our economy is in bad shape now has been a major factor in suppressing illegal immigration.

    went to the pharmacy today to get a prescription for my sick kid, in front of me was a woman - thirty something with nice nail job and new cell phone - looking alot nicer and well rested than me for sure . . . she was arguing with the pharmacist about her “goverment funded prescription” through medicare/caid . . . went on to give her kids names with all different last names . . . she had no shame at all, in fact she glared at me . . . so I thought as I waited . . . the government, most churches and society in general have taken away any semblance of shame over single motherhood, if fact we call it out as some kind of title and give the kids free backpacks in the fall and free lunches even in the summer (in the paper yesterday - fairfax county is doing this) and of course foodstamps and free prescriptions for all . . . let’s all go drop off some food at the local food bank and feel good about that . . . I further thought . . . finding a thin poor kid is getting harder these days . . . most I see are fat and bratty and at walmart buying coke and snacks . . . and I thought some more when I shelled out my last $20 for the prescription for my kid . . . how I long for the day when government spends my tax money only helping those in true need . . .

    nova…

    I totally agree with you, the economy in the tank is excellent for suppressing immigration, illegal or otherwise. that’s why more of them are either going home or hanging out on the street corners getting smashed every day until their money runs out (or committing crimes). I hope most of them just take the option to leave. If Obama is really going to do what he says and leverage against employer’s that hire illegals maybe we’ll see something come from that as well but I’m not holding my breath.

    This posting is off subject, but the “Wellington Graffiti” posting is so old I thought I should put my comments on a more up to date subject where it might be read.

    On June 29 Mr./Ms. Anonymous, under the subject theme “Wellington Targeted by 18th St Gang,” questioned the condition of Point of Woods, stating that there has always been a ton of graffiti, some in common areas, and vandalized common property. He/She moved out because of this deteriorated condition. He/She also suggested that I should take a tour through Point of Woods and see.

    I admit it has been a few months since I have been there, but I did take a tour this afternoon (July 7). What I found was that the city’s aggressive pro-active enforcement of zoning laws and its pro-active encouragement of residents has been remarkably successful in eliminating to what Mr./Ms. Anonymous described.

    I did find one significant instance of gang graffiti on Kirby Drive. Other than that one regrettable exception, the townhouse areas north of Liberia all the way from Portner to Sumner Lakes were free of graffiti, free of destroyed fences, free of trash in front yards, free of unkempt lawns. Many thanks to Kisha Sugonro (Neighborhood Services Coordinator) , the homeowners associations and the neighborhood watch groups and the individual citizens for taking pride in their neighborhood..

    I don’t know what the future will bring, but at least things are a lot better now than they were in the past.

    I am glad you think it’s better. I live in Point Of Woods and it has turned into a dump! If I could sell my house I would be out of here tomorrow. I am so sick of hoards of unsupervised children (as young as 18 months) trashing the neighborhood. I called Social services about all these little kids running in the streets and parking lots, damaging cars and private property,littering, ripping up flowers and breaking tree limbs, outside at all hours of the night no adults anywhere in sight. There are NO laws on the books with regards to how old a child should be in order to be left alone. I could not believe it. Surely the powers that be (that have dreamed up more stupid laws than you can shake a stick at) could come up with something to protect these neglected kids.
    There are more laws to protect animals than kids. Any idiot can have children, but then the rest of us are suppose to take care of them.
