Woman confronts neighbor over Mexican flag

Did she go too far? A woman perturbed that her neighbor was flying the Mexican flag in her yard is receiving criticism for the way she handled the situation. Was her reaction warranted?

PAT: Local political activist was upset by seeing the Mexican flag flying in a front yard of one of her neighbors. And so she went up and confronted the homeowner on video. And it was a video she shot on her smart phone. And then she posted it on youtube and she said, hi, is that a Mexican flag in your front yard? And the person whose home it was didn't speak any English. So they didn't -- respond. And then she said, you know we live in America, right?

This is the United States. So why are you flying a Mexican flag in your front yard. So then she posted it and apparently that got the attention of a bunch of people who didn't appreciate what she did.

JEFFY: Oh, no.

PAT: And local Los Angeles news went out to talk to her. Spoke to her and the homeowner she confronted, and found out the woman doesn't speak any English and then this -- this woman confronted her a third time, I guess, and she said, this is America. Maybe you can move to Mexico if you want to fly your Mexican flag. Does that make sense?


PAT: Does that make sense? You know, that you'd move to Mexico and fly your flag there if you love it so much? Does that make sense?


PAT: A nice way to be really nasty.

JEFFY: That is a really nice way to be nasty.

PAT: That makes sense, right? If you love Mexico so much, just go back there and fly it there. That makes sense, right?


PAT: But apparently the homeowners didn't understand why she was making such a big deal out of it. The husband --

JEFFY: They're just flying their flag.

PAT: The husband says I don't think it's offensive because the flag doesn't do anything.

JEFFY: Thank you.

PAT: He said he and his anytime never meant to hurt anyone. They were just celebrating their Mexican heritage.

JEFFY: Thank you.

PAT: I've got mixed emotions about this because when you take the vow of citizenship, you pledge allegiance to the United States. To your new country. And you sort of disavow your old one. You don't have to leave your heritage behind. But you know, your allegiance should now be here because this is where you're earning your bread and butter, right?

JEFFY: I didn't read the details of this story, but we're positive that this person is an American citizen now?

PAT: Well, I don't know if they've actually become citizens or not.

JEFFY: Okay.

PAT: I don't know, but they're living here. And you know, I don't know. It's just -- it's that we're not --

JEFFY: I know.

PAT: We're not a melting pot anymore and we don't melt together to become one. And to me, that is kind of a problem. Now, I don't think you need to go up and confront people and say, 'hey, why don't you go back to Mexico if you like your Mexican flag so much.' Does that make sense?


PAT: But on the other hand, I'm not sure she deserved -- the woman who did it was fired from her job because of it.

JEFFY: Yeah?

PAT: Because of the uproar over this video she posted on youtube, which is stupid, if you're going to act like this, don't put it on youtube. It won't turn out well for you in the end. Yeah, her real estate company fired her.


PAT: Yeah. I mean, that sucks, too. Now, I don't -- it's not great what she did. But it's not -- I mean, stupid to fire somebody for that.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: But it's -- you know, it's -- this is a difficult question. And it's just better for people if we become one? If we become part of a whole? It's better for them, it's better for us. They go further. America goes further. That's kind of been -- you know, when people say, well, it's a nation of immigrants. It was built by immigrants. Yeah, but immigrants who came here legally for one thing. And immigrants who forsook their old country and devoted their time and allegiance to this one. And taught their children a love for this one. Taught their children and immersed them in the language. When my grandmother came here from Ireland, she wouldn't allow Gaelic to be spoken. That was her native tongue. She wouldn't allow it to be spoken. We're in America now. We're going to speak English. I -- you know, everybody doesn't have to forsake their native tongue. But you should certainly learn English if you're going to live here. Kind of makes sense, doesn't it? You will go further. You will do better. Your ceiling is much, much higher. And if -- like for instance, if I move to Spain and I don't speak Spanish, I'm not going to go anywhere because there's very few jobs that I can do and do well in Spain without knowing the language. So does that make sense? So I'm not saying you need to take your Mexican flag and go back to Mexico. Does that make sense? But I am saying, you know, it does help when you -- when you become part of us. But that's -- it's wrong to say that now.

JEFFY: Listen, wouldn't it be nice to just go back to Mexico and fly your Mexican flag?

PAT: I'm not saying that. She did and that's a problem. But is it enough of a problem that you fire her?

JEFFY: Come on.

PAT: I don't think so. It's too bad.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
