This from the Drudge Report:
**Exclusive**Tony Blankley, Buchanan's fellow member of the McLaughlin Group, has this to say in his review of the book:
“As Rome passed away, so, the West is passing away, from the same causes and in much the same way. What the Danube and Rhine were to Rome, the Rio Grande and Mediterranean are to America and Europe, the frontiers of a civilization no longer defended.”
So begins a new work of warning from Pat Buchanan.
And this time Buchanan goes all the way.
STATE OF EMERGENCY: THIRD WORLD INVASION AND CONQUEST OF AMERICA streets this week and is designed to jolt readers with stats/analysis of illegal immigration gone dangerously wild.
Buchanan warns: “The children born in 2006 will witness in their lifetimes the death of the West."
One in every twelve people breaking into America has a criminal record.
By 2050, there will be 100 million Hispanics concentrated in the U.S. Southwest.
Between 10 and 20 percent of all Mexicans, Central Americans and Caribbean people have already moved to the United States.
Every month, the U.S. Border Patrol apprehends more illegal aliens breaking into our country, 150,000, than the number of troops we have in Iraq.

Buchanan slams the president: “Concerned about his legacy, George W. Bush may yet live to see his name entered into the history of his country as the president who lost the American Southwest that James K. Polk won for the United States."
In EMERGENCY, Pat Buchanan charges the Mexican regime with an Aztlan Plot, a conscious campaign to use America as a dumping ground for its poor and unemployed, both to relieve social pressure and effect a cultural re-annexation of the American Southwest. La Reconquista, the reconquest of the lands lost by Mexico in the Mexican-American War, Buchanan charges, is underway.
The Republican Party, a wholly owned subsidiary of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is in the grip of a cult called “Economism.” It is all about money now. The GOP worships at the “Church of GDP”
• Both parties are paralyzed by guilt over American past racial sins.
• Powerful Mexican and U.S. elites seek to erase America’s borders and merge the United States and Mexico into a “North American Union.”
In his controversial final chapter, “Last Chance,” Buchanan lays out a national plan to deal with the State of Emergency, before it makes an end of America:
• An Eisenhower-type deportation program, beginning with all illegal aliens convicted of felonies and every gang member not a U.S. citizen.
• A ten-year moratorium on all legal immigration, at the level JFK favored in 1958 -- 150,000 to 250,000 a year.
• A $10-billion, 2000-mile double-line security fence between the United States and Mexico, built with no apologies to Mexico City.
Most people will be familiar with Mr. Buchanan's view on immigration. But even those who have read his earlier books and read his columns, as I have, will not be prepared for the remorseless presentation of unimpeachable facts with which he makes his convincing case for the reality of his book's subtitle: "the third world invasion and conquest of America." Here he deepens his case against illegal immigration (and his case for a moratorium on even legal immigration) with statistic after statistic concerning, among many topics, the shockingly disproportionate degree of disease and crime that illegal Mexican and other immigrants are transmitting into the country.This weekend, I turned on the PBS TV channel and discovered a Sesame Street program in Spanish. Since when did the regular PBS channel become bi-lingual? The notice from the utility company comes in seven or eight languages. High up in the Lick Observatory in San Jose this summer, I saw signs in English, Spanish-- and Vietnamese (I think). The recent response to a wholly unjustified destruction of Lebanon's civil life, strong armed by an Israeli lobby, and the equally intense lobbying by Indian groups to twist (wholly willing, for a price, one should add) congressional opinion on the nuclear agreement, are evidences of where immigrant loyalties are influencing important policy decisions.
For example, in Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide, which total 1,200-1,500, are for illegal aliens. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, California now has almost 40,000 cases of tuberculosis (a disease only recently thought to be virtually extinct in America). He presents compelling evidence that the "Reconquista" of southwestern United States is not merely the silly conceit of a few extremists, but is widely desired by Mexicans (he cites a 2002 Zogby poll showing that by 58 percent to 28 percent, Mexicans believe the American Southwest belongs to Mexico).
New to me was his citation to the fact that all 47 Mexican consulates in the United States are mandated to provide textbooks to U.S. schools with significant Hispanic populations, which textbooks teach history from the point of view of General Santa Ana -- in which America stole the Southwest. The Los Angeles consulate, alone, has distributed 100,000 such textbooks just this year to the L.A. Unified School District.
Notwithstanding his unforgivable support to Bush in the 2004 election, despite all his opposition to Bush on the Iraq War, Buchanan has been been astute in his diagnosis of many of the major trends of our times. He is right on immigration, he is right on foreign wars, he is right on outsourcing, he is right on globalization, he is right in his opposition to US foreign policy being made an adjunct of Israel's. That's a lot of rights. A big picture guy who can also quote minute details to bolster his points, Patrick J. Buchanan is worth listening to.
