L.A. Times Editorial Page Shows Again How Crippled It Is

Today, compounding stupidity with stupidity, the woebegone L.A. Times editorial page again bows to globalism and again supports bringing Arabs in to guard U.S. port security.

Again, the Times shows it is unworthy of its readership, cares not a jot for the safety of the country and yields to liberalism and all its dangers regardless of all other considerations. This is the nicest way I can say it.

Shame on you, Andres Martinez and Nick Goldberg, the editorial page and op-ed page editors. They are the architects of the purges of the editorial pages writers, under the Chicago publisher Jeff Johnson.

Now, today, they take on California Sen. Barbara Boxer, who has had the temerity to question the deal whifh would make Dubai Arabs the masters of six U.S. ports at a time when Arab Madrassas throughtout the Middle East openly speak of using atomic weapons against the American people.

Fortunately, Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbor would not be among the six. But, surprise, I am just as opposed to seeing New York, Newark, Miami and other cities nuked as Los Angeles.

It is high time that either the L.A. Times, under the squalid Tribune Co., puts the national interest above globalism, recognizes that the world is a dangerous place and becomes, at long last, patriots for once, or confesses openly it is not publishing a worthy newspaper and gets out of the business.

Big business doesn't just quit, I know. A reasonable group of people would sell out to the highest bidder.

In the meantime, for heaven's sake, stop favoring Arabs over Americans. Stop disgracing yourselves.

The problem that we have in this country is we have an enormous appetite for foreign goods and commodities, but they have little interest in most of ours. So what's left? What do they do with all those billions of our dollars other than take them out of our hands and given them to other foreign hands? Why, property! We buy their goods. They buy our land, our real estate, our ports.

We are on an economic death spiral in this nation. We have given away our manufacturing base. We are driving our farmers off the land. We encourage our corporations to set up headquarters outside our boundaries for tax purposes. We are rewriting the tax code so that nothing is taxable except for wages.

No one seems to notice that we are doing everything to turn the USA into a consumer colony for corporations who, like the locust in the wheat field, will move on once they have stripped us bare.

Two things I wish The Times would look into deeper on this issue:

1. The President has a brother in Dubai with connections . . . What's his role in all this?

2. How come we can't find an American company or two to take on these contracts?

We can find an American company.

Want to hear the Democrats really squeal? Give the ports contracts to Halliburton.
