Hour Long Video Of Mexican Consulate Protest In Hendersonville, NC

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 29, 2008

Citizens in western North Carolina came together yesterday and protested the Mexican Consulate issuing Identification to 400 or so Mexicans yesterday in Hendersonville, North Carolina:

Among the groups participating were The Action Club, ALIPAC, NC Listen, and congressional candidate Carl Mumpower. The videographer was Richard Bernier who has a public access show called Sound Off Buncombe on URTV. The show airs on Charter Cable channel 20 in Buncombe and Madison counties.

**update** I forgot to add Paul Purdue to the list. He is a candidate for NC House District #115.

Asheville Rally Report part two

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 26, 2007

This is part two in a series covering the Rally to Stop Illegal Immigration put on Saturday by the Action Club of Buncombe County Saturday in Ferguson Auditorium on the campus of AB-Tech in Asheville, NC.

part one
Fern Shubert, former District 35 Senator, spoke about a misleading study by UNC professors that downplayed the high cost of illegal immigration in North Carolina. The professors were selected by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Mexican Consulate.

part two
Fern Shubert continues with how North Carolina newspapers worked with the Democrat Party to condone and cover up mass murder in Wilmington, North Carolina. This event marked the start of the rule of Jim Crow in the south, and the removal of black Republicans from office, and their right to vote in North Carolina. She also discussed North Carolina Driver’s Licenses for Illegal Aliens and the current effort to register them to vote.

Charles Thomas, NC House District 116, speaks Illegal Immigration in North Carolina, attempts to stop fraudulent Driver’s Licenses and Social Security Numbers. He addresses attempts to pass reform legislation in Raleigh, the importance of contacting General Assembly members in person, and the lack of reform in federally issued identification since 9/11.
He closed with a warnning that certain politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, are using the issue to court the Illegal Alien vote.

After 5pm, I will add videos of Dr Carl Mumpower of the Asheville City Council, Ron Woodard of NC Listen, William Gheen of ALIPAC, and Lee Anthony Nievez of You Don’t Speak For Me.

You can check for the newest available video by visiting my You Tube Channel.

Asheville Rally Report part 1

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 25, 2007

This is part one of a series, including video and numerous photos of the event and people attending.

***Slide Show added to bottom of post. –TP 805am.

[Videos will be added later this morning when I get access to a fast internet connection. –TP]

Mobile Rally Banner

I attended the Rally to Stop Illegal Immigration held at Ferguson Auditorium from 2 to 5pm Saturday afternoon on the campus of AB-Tech by The Action Club of the Buncombe County Republican Party.

Bill Fishburne was the Master of Ceremonies and provider of factoids between speakers. He opened the meeting in Spanish.

The Reverend Dr. J. Wendell Runion, of WKJV Radio, led the Invocation, Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, and the singing of the Star Spangled Banner.

Dr. Kathie Lack, President of The Action Club, welcomed everyone for their attendance on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. (There were at least 100 in attendance).

Video 01 –Opening Ceremonies

Kathy Rhodarmer, Vice-President of The Action Club, showed the famous gumball video ‘Immigration By The Numbers,” by Roy Beck, of NumbersUSA.

Andrew Dunn, of The Eagle Forum and Action Club, spoke to Illegal Immigration, including a quote of President Teddy Roosevelt on the importance of assimilation of new immigrants. He also addressed the importance of calling your local elected officials and voicing opposition to Amnesty for Illegal Aliens.

I will end part one with a link to local coverage, which will become more important when you see the video of William Gheen of ALIPAC.

AC-T Coverage

The Asheville Daily Planet had reporters in attendance, but their report is not online yet, and WLOS had a camera there, but I do not know if they aired any footage. If they sent a reporter, he/she/it kept a very low profile, and they left early in the event, before the keynote speakers spoke.

**Note**
As per William Gheen of ALIPAC’s request, please call Senator Richard Burr’s DC Office [202-224-3154] and ask that he meet with William Gheen, and remind him that you are watching for his vote to oppose the Motion for Cloture, and to vote No on the Comprehensive Immigration Bill. 2010 is not that far away, and his vote will give us an indication to start looking for a replacement.
