Mike Lee: congress is at fault for vague wording in legislation and allowing Obummer's power grabs and amnesty for illegal aliens to go as far as they have
"'We're kidding ourselves if we think we can come up with a system of laws that delegates all of this law-making power to the executive branch.   We're kidding ourselves if we don't think presidents, Democrats and Republicans alike, are going to abuse that.   We're kidding ourselves if we don't think that's going to result in an erosion of not only our constitutional order, but also liberty itself.   So, yeah, this is congress's fault, it is overwhelmingly congress's fault and we've got to turn it back.'...   Congress, when passing laws, has to be explicit in its language to prevent presidents from having wiggle room in the implementation and expansion of laws.   'We cannot allow the president to act as though he were a government of one.', Lee said.   'He is not.   We have a Constitution, that Constitution puts the legislative power, the power to make law, in the hands of congress.   And if the president of the United States doesn't like our current immigration laws he needs to go through congress, he can't just decree it...   We have to get away from the idea that so many of us have that the Constitution is something that only the courts worry about.'"

TEA parties remain the last line of defense for the US constitution
"With congress voting a short-term spending bill to avert a Department of Homeland Security [DHS] shut-down, the issue of defunding the [Obummer unconstitutional and illegal] executive action amnesty got kicked farther down the road, with the result that Tea Party Loyalists once again feel betrayed.   Beating the establishment GOP and the open border [Dems/Reds/leftists] to secure the borders seems a sometimes impossible task, until Tea Party Loyalists remember the GOP cannot win the presidency in 2016 without us.   That fact was made abundantly clear at CPAC 2015, that I attended in-person, watching RINO [Yebbie Booosh] ended up a dismal #5 in the CPAC straw poll, despite bussing in hundreds of paid Bush supporters and a softball Q&A session with Fox News host Sean Hannity..."

Obummer's hissy-fit over Netanyahu's speech
"Reasonable people can debate whether Netanyahu is really guilty of a breach of protocol in not seeking [Obummer's] approval first -- or if that is merely a pretext for a president who has long detested Netanyahu, a gifted communicator whose Churchillian warnings about the Iranian threat the [Obummer regime] wants to undercut...   the US-Israel bond -- remains as deep-rooted and durable as ever...   Gallup released its newest survey of American attitudes toward Israel.   Despite weeks of clamor over Netanyahu's visit and the litany of White House complaints about Israeli policies toward the Palestinians, 70% of Americans have a favorable opinion of the Jewish state -- virtually indistinguishable from the 72% favorability Gallup measured last year.   When asked to choose sides in the regional conflict, public backing for Israel was unchanged at 62%, close to its all-time high...   Most Americans feel a visceral attachment to Israel and what it represents, irrespective of their views about any particular Israeli politician.   It works the other way, too: Israelis are intensely pro-American, whether the US president is one they adore or tend to mistrust...   The [Obummer regime's] unvarnished hostility for Netanyahu may persuade a narrow slice of the Dem/Red/leftist caucus to boycott Tuesday's speech...   Immensely more important is the lethal threat of a nuclear-armed Iran.   Even without the bomb, Iran is the world's most dangerous regime -- apocalyptic incubator of terrorism and jihad, ruthless suppressor of human rights, unflagging zealot for wiping Israel 'off the map', and fanatic about bringing 'Death to America'..."

"And finally, I want to recognize my wife, Sara, whose courage in the face of adversity is an inspiration to me.   Sara divides her time as a child psychologist, as a loving mother, and her public duties as the wife of the prime minister.   Sara, I'm so proud to have you here with me today, to have you with me at my side always...   For 2000 years, my people, the Jewish people, were stateless, defenseless, voiceless.   We were utterly powerless against our enemies who swore to destroy us.   We suffered relentless persecution and horrific attacks.   We could never speak on our own behalf, and we could not defend ourselves.   Well, no more, no more.   The days when the Jewish people are passive in the face of threats to annihilate us, those days are over.   Today in our sovereign state of Israel, we defend ourselves.   And being able to defend ourselves, we ally with others, most importantly, the United States of America, to defend our common civilization against common threats..."
He should send Sara to deal with the childish, tantrum-throwing, race-obsessed, oath-breaking Brack Hussein Obummer.

one-on-one negative non-verbal signals may be keeping you or a friend unemployed
"when we adopt another person's postures and body language, we are able to better understand what another person is experiencing from their perspective.   A person's mirroring shows the eagerness of wanting to understand someone and establish a real connection...   The findings revealed the students who were given the negative interviewer began to match that person's tone as their voices became colder, uninterested, and less enthusiastic in comparison to their short speech.   Furthermore, a separate group who didn't know the premise of the study, listened to the recordings of the interviews, and rated the negative-tone students lower than those with a neutral-tone.   The students in the negative-tone condition were seen as uninterested in the job.   The interviewers' lack of interest in the interviewee was transmitted onto the interviewee who then reflected the projected image...   A similar 2011 study...When participants viewed a video with 2 people pretending to partake in a job interview, they saw the person interviewed was adapting the same body language as the condescending interviewer.   However, when the video cropped the person being interviewed out of the frame, only hearing the audio, they found mimicking the condescending interviewer didn't negatively affect participants' ratings of [the person being 'interviewed']..."
Similarly, one would reasonably expect that an uninterested "recruiter", not understanding the job, but running through a script, is bound to project a negative attitude, which the job-seekers are bound to reflect back.

***more generally, does president Obummer understand religion?***
World Net Daily
NW Indiana Times
"...his background, many of his comments and his policies all suggest strongly that he does not.   [President Obummer] himself has acknowledged that neither of his parents was religious.   His largely absent father was a non-practicing Muslim of far-left political sensibilities.   His mother (at least according to her friends) described herself as an atheist.   [Obummer and/or his ghost-writers asserted] that she was 'a lonely witness for secular humanism' in Indonesia, and credits her with awakening his interest in politics as a vehicle for change.   Indeed, [Obummer's] view of religion seems always to have been skewed by political expediency.   Ed Klein, author of the 2012 book, _The Amateur_, conducted hours of interviews with [president Obummer's] former pastor, reverend Jeremiah Wright, who revealed that when they met, [Obummer] knew very little about Christianity, but a great deal about Islam.   (The president has said that he has never practiced Islam.)   Reverend Wright further stated that church was 'never (the [Obummers']) thing', but admitted that Obama needed visible membership in a Christian church to court the Chicago black vote.   In his [infamous] 'bitter clingers' speech in 2008, then-candidate [Obummer] summed up his take on the motivation behind rural Christians' religiosity as being nothing more than thinly veiled economic malaise...   the president has treated Christians' deeply held beliefs as mere annoyances...   (And in so doing, he not only dismisses religious beliefs, but constitutional limits on government power.)..."

should anyone care how hard you tried?
"...Outside of school, very few people will ask you to show your work or explain how you arrived at your results: They just want to know you can do the job effectively, efficiently and without too much fuss...   Let's not pretend there's no difference between effort and accomplishment; let's not pretend there's no difference between those who try hard and those who do well.   Those we respect, admire and remember bring to their work diligence, focus and an indefatigable passion for improvement.   They aren't perfectionists but they'll reject the shoddy and the second-rate.   We should learn to take genuine pride in a job well done and not expect praise for one simply carried out.   What we need is an honest assessment of our abilities, our talents -- and our limitations.   And that will take some real effort."

Scott Walker's debt to leftists
"...Teachers lost their jobs in Milwaukee in 2010 in part because of declining enrollment but also because the teachers' union preferred laying off new hires to cuts in lavish spending on themselves.   Governor Walker's reforms saved the jobs of many young teachers.   His Democratic opponents in 2012 and last year were unable to name a school harmed by them...   Ms. Harf has a master's degree in international relations from the University of Virginia.   She 'is Exhibit A for the comprehensive failure of our educational system', said retired Army intelligence officer Ralph Peters...   'We love him for the enemies he has made.', said Edward Bragg of Wisconsin in seconding the nomination of Grover Cleveland in 1884."

what Whittaker Chambers tells us about the age of Obummer
"For those who may not know the story, Chambers, as a young man in the 1920s, signed on to man's second oldest faith, the one that promised, 'Ye shall be as gods.'   Communism was in its ascendancy at the time, and Chambers ascended with it.   As a writer and true believer, he sufficiently impressed his superiors that they asked him to go underground in Washington DC and organize a high level ring of federal bureaucrats working on behalf of the Soviet Union.   Prominent among those bureaucrats was Hiss.   A Harvard Law graduate, Hiss would rise through the ranks to become a special assistant in the State Department, an adviser to president Roosevelt at Yalta, and one of the principal architects of the United Nations.   After World War 2, he was named president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace...   Stalin's lethal, large-scale purges in the late 1930s helped open Chambers' eyes...   In the various congressional hearings, grand jury sessions, and trials that followed, it became absurdly obvious that Chambers was telling the truth and Hiss lying..."

Israel is NOT the problem in the MiddleEast; violence-initiating Muslims are
Michael W. Chapman: Cybercast news Service
"Last week admiral James (Ace) Lyons (USNavy, retired) spoke the blunt truth about Muslim infiltration, subversion, and sabotage of the U.S. government.   'For years, the Muslim Brotherhood has been able to penetrate our national security agencies, and now it is institutionalized.   It is the same type of penetration the communists were able to achieve in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s to influence our policies and operations.   It must be understood that there is no difference between the objectives of the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda.   Any distinction lies only in the tactics they use to achieve their objectives: Destroy the United States and replace the Constitution with Shariah law.'...   Like Adolf Hitler and Lenin, Khomeini wrote about his plans for Iran, before the U.S.A. allowed him to take over from the Shah.   Khomeinist Iran was the first Muslim nation to be run by a sadistic theocratic priesthood, determined to destroy the West (and Israel, of course) to play out its nuclear Armageddon nightmare...   Since Iran's fall back into the early Dark Ages, Islamofascist ideologies have taken over: Lebanon, Turkey, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Parts of every major European city, Parts of the U.S. government..."

Russian money and useful American idiots
"Well, a recent report offers some useful detailed information about the role of Russia in funding the opposition to fracking by so-called Green groups.   The piece was written by investigative reporter Lachlan Markay.   He reports the amazing news that a mysterious Bermuda-based company with Russian connections has been feeding tens of millions of dollars to American environmentalist groups who just happen to be virulently anti-fracking...   The Bermudan company is called 'Klein Ltd.'.   Klein donated (i.e., transferred) over $23M -- in the year 2010 alone! -- to American environmentalist groups that aim to halt the American fracking revolution and its expansion abroad.   Klein funneled the cash to a non-profit organization called 'the Sea Change Foundation', based (where else?) in California.   This amounted to 40% of the foundation's money, please note.   The Sea Change Foundation in turn shoveled the loot to anti-fossil fuel activist groups such as the Center for American Progress [i.e. Regress], Food and Water Watch, the League of Conservation Voters, the National Resource Defense Council, and (but of course) the Sierra Club.   These environmentalist machines in turn use the pelf to fund their agitprop disinformation campaigns against fracking...   Klein Ltd. has a director by the name of Nicholas Hopkins.   Hopkins just coincidentally is also a director of an investment company that is deeply invested in Russian oil and natural gas companies.   And it turns out that the mysterious Mr. Hopkins is a senior counsel for a Bermudan law firm called 'Wakefield Quin'.   Wakefield Quin provides office space and serves as a corporate registered agent in Bermuda for numerous foreign companies, including upwards of 20 companies with connections to the Russian government.   And Hoskins and other Wakefield officials have worked as managers at companies and hedge funds owned by or tied in with the Russian state-owned companies.   For examples, Hoskins and other Wakefield people have served as executives of Spectrum Partners, a fund with offices in Moscow and assets based in Russian oil and natural gas.   Hoskins and many other Wakefield Quin mucky-mucks are tied in with Russian state-owned Rosneft.   Hoskins is also director of a subsidiary of a Russian investment house called Troika Dialog, which just happened to handle the IPO of Timan Oil and Gas, a company owned by a Russian kleptocrat...   Sea Change Foundation is run by Mr. and Mrs. Nathaniel Simons, who are the only other donors to the foundation besides Klein Ltd.   Simons manages hedge funds directed by Wakefield Quin attorneys, and his own investment firm just by utter coincidence specializes in companies that stand to gain from the aggressive environmentalist policies promoted by the foundation.   And funds run by him and his father Jim Simons list their addresses as -- Wakefield Quin..."

Sili Valley executives "fight sexism" by treating women as mentally infirm
"While women are being beaten, beheaded, and raped in the Middle East to complete silence from feminist groups, we do, on the brighter side, have yet another article about the woes of the ladies of Silicon Valley.   The LA Times has written some very compelling anecdotes from women who are leaving the tech world because they are frustrated by sexism!...   'A Harvard Business Review study from 2008 found that as many as 50% of women working in science, engineering and technology will, over time, leave because of hostile work environments.'   That's good scholarly work!   I'm glad Harvard didn't also examine how many men left because of frustrating work environments, because it wouldn't have been relevant to the study...   'She said male co-workers seemed to oppose her.'   And men don't have male co-workers opposing them...   'They just kept asking me to prove myself over and over again. she said.'   Only women have had this experience working in tech.   If you're a man in tech reading this, you can't relate, because things like this don't happen to you...   Or, purely as a thought experiment, women could simply be treated the same as men, and if fewer women want to go into programming, or fewer women want to stay in an environment with long hours and stressful work, that's their decision to make.   Many people have frustrations at work, and it's easy to assign it to sexism, but the fact is that tech companies are dying to find qualified women to fill slots so they can show 'diversity'.   It's not very likely that they're trying to drive them away."

Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal executive amnesty of illegal aliens united CPAC gathering
"An overwhelming 77% of attendees agreed Congress must act to defund the president's actions.   Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) was the first speaker to directly address immigration, stating 'We have to use the power of the purse.   We have to withhold funding when the president does that.'   Lee, a usually calm presence, was clearly emotional regarding the issue as he emphatically stated, 'If you are asking whether or not I will vote to fund the president's executive amnesty, no I will not.'   The statement was met with applause and cheering, even bringing a few to their feet.   Regarding executive amnesty, Lee also pleaded, 'We've got to get back to our separation of powers.'...   Drawing on his own experiences as the child of immigrants, governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) also expressed passion surrounding the immigration issue.   He told the audience, 'We in the West have a responsibility to assimilate and integrate...   There is nothing wrong with saying that if you want to come to America, you should be an American...   [Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal amnesty for illegal aliens, his unconstitutional and illegal grant of 'work permits' to wives of H-1B visa grantees need] to be repealed.   We elected these Republicans.   They told us if we gave them the senate majority they would stand up to this unconstitutional, this illegal act...'   Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) incorporated a strong no-amnesty stance into his speech.   The senator also pointed a finger toward Washington: 'Unfortunately, Republican leadership is cutting a deal with Harry Reid and the Democrats to give in on executive amnesty...   Washington [DC] wants amnesty, but the people want rule of law.'...   governor Rick Perry (R-TX) joined his state's senator in condemning Washington, 'They talk and people literally die.   You don't trust Washington [DC] to deal with this -- I don't trust Washington [DC] to deal with this -- until they secure the border...   Laura Ingraham, conservative talk show host, gave the audience something to support, not just join in mutual disdain.   In her praise of the United States, Ingraham stated, 'American citizenship is not something that should be easily bargained away.   American citizenship means something.   It's not just a piece of paper.'   Ingraham's fellow talk show host Mark Levin mirrored her passion: 'We are not a nation of immigrants.   We are a nation of citizens.   I am sick and tired of the American citizen being demeaned and treated as a second-class citizen.'   For a supposedly divided party, the message seemed very clear: Conservative Republicans oppose the president's actions on amnesty.   Grass-roots Republicans are not divided on immigration, especially not on [Obummer's recent unconstitutional and illegal] actions.   Their leadership would do well to listen."

CPAC session on immigration history was canceled
"3 break-out sessions on immigration were scheduled: 'Immigration: Can Conservatives Reach a Consensus', 'The History of Immigration and Citizenship', and 'If We Build It, They Won't Come'.   Clearly, immigration was an important point of discussion.   Unfortunately, and particularly disappointing, the Friday session on 'History of Immigration and Citizenship' was cancelled.   Given the large percentage of student attendees (47% of participants in CPAC's straw poll identified themselves as students, the same percentage that fell within the age span of 18-25 years olds) at this year's convention, this was a lost opportunity.   Part of the 'CPAC University' series of educational sessions, it had the potential to provide CPAC participants with a stronger foundation for understanding one of the most pressing issues of today.   There was no indication of why the session was cancelled; it might have stemmed from the perennial tension between CPAC's sponsoring organization, the American Conservative Union, which supports amnesty [for illegal aliens] and increased immigration, and the actual activists who attend, who tend to be more hawkish on immigration...   contexts change.   According to government records, 9M persons were unemployed in 2015 January; millions more have dropped out of the job market altogether.   Data show that 'The nation's immigrant population (legal and illegal) hit a record 41.3M in July 2013, an increase of 1.4M since 2010 July.   Since 2000, the immigrant population is up 10.2M.'"

"The researchers -- Peera Wongupparaj, Veena Kumari and Robin Morris at Kings College London -- did not themselves ask anyone to sit an IQ test, but they analysed data from 405 previous studies.   Altogether, they harvested IQ test data from more than 200K participants, captured over 64 years and from 48 countries.   Focusing on one part of the IQ test, the Raven's Progressive Matrices, they found that on average intelligence has risen the equivalent of 20 IQ points since 1950.   IQ tests are designed to ensure that the average result is always 100, so this is a significant jump...   In 1982, James Flynn... when tests were revised every 25 years or so, the test-setters would get a panel to sit both the old test and the new one...   'in every instance, those who took the old test got a higher score than they did on the new test'...   If Americans today took the tests from a century ago, Flynn says, they would have an extraordinarily high average IQ of 130.   And if the Americans of 100 years ago took today's tests, they would have an average IQ of 70 -- the recognised cut-off for people with intellectual disabilities.   To put it another way, IQ has been rising at roughly 3 points per decade...   There has been no clear correlation between the rising IQ scores and US school performance -- in SAT tests, for example...   'Now virtually all formal schooling, when you get past the sixth grade into high school and college, means that you take hypotheses seriously.', says Flynn.   '...And you're using logic on abstract categories.'...   'in 1900 only 3% of Americans performed cognitively demanding jobs -- now the figure is 35%, and the work itself is far more intellectually demanding than it was a century ago.   Families are also smaller, so children are exposed to more adult conversation at the dinner table than in the past.'...   in some North European countries, including France and Scandinavia, IQs have flat-lined or diminished slightly...   'People in 1900 had minds that were perfectly adequate for remembering first cousins once removed, they were perfectly adequate for ploughing a farm, they were perfectly adequate for making change in a store.   No-one asked them to do tertiary education.'..."

genomes document ancient mass migration to Europe 4,500 years ago
"Their analyses show that 7K-8K years ago, a closely related group of early farmers moved into Europe from the Near East, confirming the findings of previous studies.   The farmers were distinct from the indigenous hunter-gatherers they encountered as they spread around the continent.   Eventually, the two groups mixed, so that by 5K-6K years ago, the farmers' genetic signature had become melded with that of the indigenous Europeans...   Professor Reich and colleagues have now identified a likely source area for this later diaspora.   The Bronze Age Yamnaya pastoralists of southern Russia are a good fit for the missing third genetic component in Europeans.   The team analysed nine genomes from individuals belonging to this nomadic group, which buried their dead in mounds known as kurgans.   The scientists contend that a group similar to the Yamnaya moved into the European heartland after the invention of wheeled vehicles, contributing up to 50% of ancestry in some modern north Europeans...   Even more intriguing is the possible link between this steppe expansion and the origins of Indo-European languages..."

woman's body found in lead coffin inside stone sarcophagus next to remains of Richard iii
"But she was female, may have died in 1250 and possibly founded the friary, the University of Leicester said. Two other graves were also excavated in the former friary, both of women... Tests revealed she was an elderly woman and experts believe she could have been an early benefactor of the church as she may have died in 1250, not long after the building was complete. However, radio-carbon dating indicates she could have died as late as 1400 -- 85 years before the death of King Richard... there were still hundreds of other burials that have not been touched. Richard 3 would certainly not have been the only male buried here during the friary's 300-year history and historic records list at least 3 other men buried in the church.', he said... Scientists also revealed the women enjoyed varied and expensive diets, including sea fish, meat and game, indicating they were relatively wealthy. But they also showed signs of hard physical labour, showing they were probably middle-class Leicester residents."

House bill (HR604) aims at ending chain-immigration
"Chain migration accounts for more than half of all immigration and is responsible for most of the long-term population growth since 1972, when native-born Americans started having children at an average replacement level of 2.1 per family to promote a more sustainable future for their children and grand-children...   Parents could quality for a renewable visa that doesn't include work authorization if their children could provide proof of financial support and health insurance...   Non-nuclear family members that eventually can petition distant relatives would be removed from the chain which, in turn, would reduce legal immigration and stabilize population."

the honesty gap
"The poetic justice in the recent 'pay gap' revelations is that the fundamental fraud in the statistics that are thrown around comes back to bite those who are promoting that fraud for political purposes.   What makes such statistics fraudulent is that they are comparing apples and oranges.   Innumerable studies, going back for decades, have shown that women do not average as many hours of work per year as men, do not have as many consecutive years of full-time employment as men, do not work in the same mix of occupations as men and do not specialize in the same mix of subjects in college as men.   Back in 1996, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine [NEJM] showed that young male physicians earned 41% higher incomes than young female physicians.   But the same study showed that young male physicians worked over 500 hours a year more than young female physicians..."

"The framers of the constitution added the second amendment for some very good reasons, and it's not only for hunting, target practice and personal protection, as most people tend to believe.   Let's see what Thomas Jefferson had to say about it.   'None but an armed nation can dispense with a standing army.   To keep ours armed and disciplined is therefore at all times important.'   We're all familiar with what Admiral Yamato of the Japanese Imperial Navy said about there being a rifle behind every blade of grass in America, making invading the U.S. Mainland a chancy venture.   Well today, in my opinion, America faces a more clear and present danger to our homeland than we ever did from the Japanese.   I have no desire to be an alarmist, and I am very serious about the statement I am about to make.   And I hope, with all my heart, that it is totally wrong, but I sincerely believe that the chances of terrorist chaos in the streets of America, attacks on shopping malls, public gatherings and even in neighborhoods are all but eminent.   America has been much less than vigilant in our immigration polices for decades.   There are thousands [millions] of people who have over-stayed their visas, and the government has completely lost track of them, those who have slipped through the cracks, as was the case with the Tsarnaev brothers, who pulled off the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Saudis, who flew planes into the World Trade Towers.   The same can be said for those who simply walked across our Southern border that [president Barack Hussein Obummer] wants to grant amnesty to, not even knowing their reasons for being here, or their ultimate intentions..."

Algemeiner: full transcript
Jewish Press: transcript
"Last summer, millions of Israelis were protected from thousands of Hamas rockets because this capital dome helped build our Iron Dome...   We’re an ancient people.   In our nearly 4K years of history, many have tried repeatedly to destroy the Jewish people.   Tomorrow night, on the Jewish holiday of Purim, we'll read the Book of Esther.   We'll read of a powerful Persian vice-roy named Haman, who plotted to destroy the Jewish people some 2,500 years ago.   But a courageous Jewish woman, queen Esther, exposed the plot and gave for the Jewish people the right to defend themselves against their enemies.   The plot was foiled.   Our people were saved.   Today the Jewish people face another attempt by yet another Persian potentate to destroy us.   Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei spews the oldest hatred, the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology.   He tweets that Israel must be annihilated -- he tweets.   You know, in Iran, there isn't exactly free Internet.   But he tweets in English that Israel must be destroyed.   For those who believe that Iran threatens the Jewish state, but not the Jewish people, listen to Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, Iran's chief terrorist proxy.   He said: If all the Jews gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of chasing them down around the world.   But Iran's regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem.   The 6M Jews murdered by the Nazis were but a fraction of the 60M people killed in World War 2.   So, too, Iran's regime poses a grave threat, not only to Israel, but also the peace of the entire world.   To understand just how dangerous Iran would be with nuclear weapons, we must fully understand the nature of the regime.   The people of Iran are very talented people. They're heirs to one of the world's great civilizations.   But in 1979, they were hijacked by religious zealots -- religious zealots who imposed on them immediately a dark and brutal dictatorship.   That year, the zealots drafted a constitution, a new one for Iran.   It directed the revolutionary guards not only to protect Iran's borders, but also to fulfill the ideological mission of jihad.   The regime's founder, Ayatollah Khomeini, exhorted his followers to 'export the revolution throughout the world'.   I'm standing here in Washington, DC and the difference is so stark.   America's founding document promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.   Iran's founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad.   And as states are collapsing across the Middle East, Iran is charging into the void to do just that.   Iran's goons in Gaza, its lackeys in Lebanon, its revolutionary guards on the Golan Heights are clutching Israel with 3 tentacles of terror.   Backed by Iran, Assad is slaughtering Syrians.   Back by Iran, Shiite militias are rampaging through Iraq.   Back by Iran, Houthis are seizing control of Yemen, threatening the strategic straits at the mouth of the Red Sea.   Along with the Straits of Hormuz, that would give Iran a second choke-point on the world's oil supply.   Just last week, near Hormuz, Iran carried out a military exercise blowing up a mock U.S. aircraft carrier.   That's just last week..."

restricted telecomm continues in the USA
"A lot of ordinary Americans hate their cable company. They fume with every month's astronomically high TV-Internet-phone bundle bill, the product of the company's monopoly or near-monopoly power. High-speed Internet is seen no longer as a luxury but as the staff of commercial and personal life. Many Americans know that they are paying vastly more for far slower service than their friends in France, in the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe. For huge numbers of us, hating the cable company transcends politics..."
FH's view of this is a bit odd. The problem is the government-enforced near-monopoly instead of government-enforced competition. The telecomm execs like near-monopoly low levels of service and high charges; the FB, Google, Netflix execs want the free-ridership of making big bux without paying for the big telecomm investments. The FCC left-wingers (Dems/Reds) want power and crony socialism for their buddies, and the FCC right-wingers want crony socialism for their buddies. The power-mad government wants easy monitoring and tracking (privacy violation). The "little people" have lost again in any case...jgo

"Now it's come out that John Kerry and the [Obummer regime's] other foreign policy masterminds have been withholding details of Washington's coming deal with Teheran from our 'ally' Israel.   There are some things, they figure, it is better the Israelis not know.   Why, sure.   Why tell the sacrificial lamb what awaits it? Any more than a wise old statesman like Neville Chamberlain let the Czechs know just what was happening behind closed doors when he met Herr Hitler in Munich to assure 'Peace in Our Time', which in that case lasted maybe a year -- from September of 1938 to September of 1939.   The hapless Czechs were represented at Munich, too, but kept in the dark till the deal was done.   It might only have upset them if they'd gotten wind of what was going on.   They were told they'd been sold out only after the sale was made, signed, sealed and delivered...   But surely Neville Chamberlain's grand welcome home will pale compared to the state occasion when [the haughty] John Kerry [who served in VietNam], [Barack Hussein Obummer] and naive [or malevolent] company unveil what has been an open secret for years: Washington [DC] is determined to make a deal that will let Teheran's mullahs proceed with their plans to develop a nuclear weapon all their own.   And at such a low price, too.   Just the Israelis' security.   Of course that'll be only the down payment; our own security and that of our remaining allies in the Middle East will be jeopardized only later, maybe a whole year later if the Munich precedent holds..."

TEA Party Digest
"Specifically, this task force in its 'interim' report recommends that the segment within the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) known as the 'immigration violator file' be de-activated and deleted.   Given [the Obummer regime's] bent over the past several years toward destroying immigration controls of any sort, the recommendation cannot come as a surprise.   Still, to follow it would be fundamentally stupid.   I can quickly and easily think of a couple of dozen reasons why eliminating the file will be seriously injurious to immigration enforcement, and thus homeland security as well..."
I have to disagree with DC.   The US constitution explicitly says that police should NOT know everything possible about people they are targeting...   unless and until they produce reasonable reasons to believe they are engaged in or imminently to engage in initiation of force or fraud -- reasons convincing enough to get a warrant from a skeptical judge.   Not an automatic rubber-stamp.   Not a presumption that every policeman has good or bad intentions.   Not a presumption that every motorist is guilty of something and that it is just a matter of coming up with an excuse, as has commonly been the case over the last 50 years and more.

"Boehner, through his ex-chief of staff Barry Jackson (who now works as a senior board member for the outside group American Action Network), has close ties to advertisements targeting 3 House Republicans for their steadfast opposition to any funding for [Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] executive amnesty.   The AAN ad buy, worth $400K, has television spots running in the districts of representatives Jim Jordan (R-OH), Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) and Tim Huelskamp (R-KS).   In an interview with Breitbart News on Tuesday, Huelskamp came out swinging against the decision to fire on members who are supposed to be his own troops.   'If these guys spent half as much time fighting [Obummer] as they do attacking conservatives, maybe we'd win.', Huelskamp said, while noting that AAN is clearly 'Boehner's group' and that the Speaker himself must be personally aware of the attack ads.   They seem to be backfiring in more ways than one, however.   The attack ads could be part of the catalyst behind 167 Republicans casting a vote against the DHS funding bill that funds [Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] executive amnesty -- meaning they were in essence casting a vote of no confidence in Boehner's [losership]...   Those 3 members are now heroes against the left and victims of the political [losership's] brutality [and treachery], giving them a bully pulpit from which to bludgeon Boehner and [Obummer] moving forward..."

"If any of these media outlets had bothered breathing into paper bags before making abject fools of themselves, they might have actually committed journalism.   Holy Spirit is a tight-knit community with a 50-year tradition of excellence in academics, sports and character education.   I know more than a little about the school and its student body because I am a proud alumna of H.S.H.S. and have stayed in touch with many of its dedicated teachers and administrators over the years.   Part of Holy Spirit's half-century legacy includes a storied athletic rivalry with nearby Atlantic City High School.   The competition between the Holy Spirit Spartans and the Atlantic City Vikings has always been fierce but friendly.   At a basketball game two weeks ago, Holy Spirit students decided to show their team spirit by recreating Arizona State University's famous 'Curtain of Distraction' during their rivals' foul shots.   Unlike the pot-stirrers who've turned an innocent prank into an international p.c. incident, Holy Spirit's senior class president Pat Shober was actually in the stands on Feb. 18 during the game.   He donned a green ballerina tutu for the foul shot skits.   Other students scrounged up a bumblebee suit, monkey pajamas, costumes for Dorothy from the 'Wizard of Oz', a jack-o'-lantern and a banana..."

"thousands of cannon shells, about 100 tonnes of gunpowder and other materials used to make explosives, the attorney general's office said...   The cargo was listed in the records of the 28,451 deadweight-tonne ship as grain products.   The captain of the Hong Kong-flagged vessel had been arrested, the attorney general's office said...   'Around 100 tonnes of powder, 2.6M detonators, 99 projectiles and around 3K cannon shells were found.', Gonzalez added.   Photographs from the prosecutor's office showed wooden cases inside a shipping container with labels stating [Red Chinese] defense manufacturer China North Industries Group Corporation as the supplier.   The company, known as Norinco, is China's biggest arms maker...   The recipient was stated as importer Tecnoimport in the Cuban capital Havana...   A North Korean ship was detained in the Caribbean region in 2013 July, near the Panama canal, when it was found to be carrying Soviet-era weapons from Cuba including two MiG-21 jet fighters, hidden under thousands of tonnes of sugar."

the corrupt Obummer regime's war against transparency
C.J. Ciaramella: Fox: federal judge castigated EPA for "offensively unapologetic" resistance to turning over docs in FOIA case
Jason Devaney: News Max: EPA lacks respect for FOIA process
Stephen Dinan: Washington DC Times: judge ordered EPA to halt discrimination against non-leftists
Susan Ferrechio: Washington DC Examiner
"The entirety of the Obama era is marked by secrecy, obfuscation and, if all else fails, sheer dishonesty...   What is it about these elites that they believe rules just don't pertain to them?...   On the same day, news was breaking in The Washington Times that Mark Levin's Landmark Legal Foundation had spurred federal judge Royce Lamberth to broadside the Environmental Protection Agency that the Freedom of Information Act is for all citizens, not just your biggest supporters.   EPA dragged its feet on Landmark's requests for documents -- especially before the 2012 election -- and generally treated them like pond scum.   'The recurrent instances of disregard that EPA employees display for FOIA obligations should not be tolerated by the agency.', the judge said.   'It is plain to this court that EPA perceives Landmark as an enemy...   This court would implore the executive branch to take greater responsibility in ensuring that all EPA FOIA requests -- regardless of the political affiliation of the requester -- are treated with equal respect and conscientiousness.'...   When Democrats are in power, transparency goes out the window and our knights in shining armor are nowhere to be found.   It's not just Levin's lawyers who have demonstrated [Team Obummer's] disregard for answering Freedom of Information Act requests.   Conservative activist and author Christopher Horner laid out an astonishing case against the [Obummer regime] in his book _The Liberal War on Transparency_.   Just like Hillary, former EPA administrator Lisa Jackson conducted government business illegally using her private e-mail account.   Just like Hillary, staffers of [Obummer's] Department of Energy enjoyed conducting government business from private e-mail accounts.   In the scandal surrounding Solyndra's bankruptcy after government 'investments', Energy Department official Jonathan Silver instructed department staffers: 'Don't ever send an e-mail on DoE e-mail with personal e-mail addresses.'   He wanted to hide these communications from a sub poena.   Why is this administration so bold in its lawlessness?   Perhaps it is their confidence that the news media will look the other way."

"ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate is often portrayed by the main-stream media (MSM) as the demonic face of 'extremism'.   To our president, this organization is not Islamic.   For [Obummer], ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate is composed of pathological individuals who are masquerading as Islamics, hence inappropriately called 'Islamic extremists' or 'Islamic radicals'.   Not only ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate is to be exempted from the 'Islamic' appellation, but so are other groups like al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and the growing number of 'lone wolf' assassins.   Even Hamas, which is on our State Department terror list, is allowed to receive money, in complete contravention of U.S. law, as they 'partner' with the Palestinian Authority.   Also, Iran, a country with which we do not have formal diplomatic relations because of their atrocities, is purposely not portrayed as governed by 'radical Islamists' or 'Islamic terrorists'.   Despite appearances, Islam is not at war with the West or with the kuffars (unbelievers).   Thus, the [Obummer regime has tried to redefine] 'Islam', 'terror', 'jihad', and 'extremism'..."

"The conservative grassroots voters of America, who handed Republicans a historic victory in the 2014 mid-term elections, yesterday suffered a betrayal of epic proportion when House Republicans, led by speaker John Boehner, voted to fund the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] without any prohibition against [Obummer's] unconstitutional attempt to grant 'executive amnesty' to millions of illegal aliens.   To those remaining conservatives who really thought that the Capitol Hill establishment was going to make good on its promise to fight [Obummer's] unconstitutional amnesty 'tooth and nail' all I can say is you haven't read my book _TAKEOVER_, because such betrayals are part of a now-over 100-year pattern on the part of the Republican Party's [regressive] establishment.   The Republican [losers'] surrender on amnesty is just the latest in a long list of examples that, as I point out in _TAKEOVER_, prove that the number one enemy of limited government, constitutional conservatives is not the Democrats, but big-government, establishment Republicans, such as John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Bush 41, Bush 43 [Shrub], and Bush 45 wannabe [Yebbie]..."

Buckley ii when he launched _National Review_ several years earlier in 1955, the name bestowed by NR senior-editor Russell Kirk in his book _The Conservative Mind_.   There wasn't even any consensus on the moniker 'conservative'.   I considered myself an individualist, others considered themselves libertarians or classical liberals.   The Intercollegiate Society of Individualists (ISI) existed to provide intellectual fodder for us youngsters, but there were as yet no conservative activist organizations.   We would help remedy that deficiency in the coming years 1957 to 1960..."

a rogue president
Washington DC Times
World Net Daily
"These are not hypothetical questions.   In 2012, [president Obummer] signed executive orders that essentially said to about 1.7M unlawfully present immigrants who arrived in the U.S.A. before their 16th birthdays and who are not yet 31 years of age that if they complied with certain conditions that he made up out of thin air they will not be deported.   In 2014, the president signed additional executive orders that essentially made the same offer to about 4.7M unlawfully present immigrants, without the age limits that he had made up out of thin air.   A federal court enjoined enforcement of the 2014 orders last month.   Last week, the Federal Communications Commission [FCC] -- the bureaucrats appointed by the president who regulate broadcast radio and television -- decreed that it has the authority to regulate the Internet, even though federal courts have twice ruled that it does not.   Also last week, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives [BATFE], whose director is appointed by the president, proposed regulations that would outlaw the only mass-produced bullets that can be fired from an AR-15 rifle.   This rifle has been the target of the left for many years because it looks like a military weapon; yet it is a lawful and safe civilian rifle commonly owned by many Americans.   This week, the president's press secretary told reporters that the president is seriously thinking of signing executive orders intended to raise taxes on corporations by directing the IRS to redefine tax terminology so as to increase corporate tax burdens.   He must have forgotten that those additional taxes would be paid by either the shareholders or the customers of those corporations, and those shareholders and customers elected a congress they had every right to expect would be writing the tax laws...   [Obummer] actually asked congress to write the laws he is now purporting to write, and congress declined, and so he does so at his peril..."

Boehner's left turn
"For the second day in a row, Wednesday, his House [losership] team turned to minority-leader Nancy [Nasty] Pelosi's Democrats to help pass major [bad] legislation and overcome determined opposition from dozens of GOP conservatives...   The vote came just one day after House Republican [losers] pushed through a key bill with the votes of Democrats rather than of their own conference members.   Tuesday's bill funded the Department of Homeland Security until Sept. 30 without curbing [president Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] executive order shielding millions of illegal [aliens] from deportation.   In that vote, too, conservatives were side-lined.   The $40G Homeland Security measure came to the floor after Boehner allegedly cut a deal with Pelosi, D-CA, last week...   Before agreeing to a [dirty] bill, Boehner spent weeks [weakly] holding out for a Homeland Security bill that defunded [Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] executive actions [but pointedly refusing to make use of available rules and procedures to win]...   Last week, conservative opposition forced House GOP [losers] to pull legislation from the floor that would have revamped the Bush-era 'No Child Left Behind Act'.   Conservatives said it did not go far enough to free local education from federal control [and the losership would not allow them to strengthen it].   More conservative opposition lies ahead as lawmakers begin grappling with whether to restore spending hikes that were capped under the 2011 Budget Control Act, also known as the sequester.   Conservatives don't want to lift the budget caps imposed by the law, while other Republicans are in favor of lifting the caps to allow more government spending, particularly for defense [but also for unconstitutional activities].   Conservatives are also likely to oppose raising the nation's debt limit once again, which will be on the table this summer..."

"Of course, the media also ignored Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman handing millions to the Clinton charity just before Hillary's big run.   Clinton is hardly the first [Obummer regime] official to utilize a private e-mail account to shield herself.   Lisa Jackson of the Environmental Protection Agency used a private e-mail address under the name 'Richard Windsor' to conduct official business.   According to Vice News' Jason Leopold, the Department of Defense told him that they would not release any [e-mail messages] from former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, since 'SecDef does not maintain an official e-mail account'.   Other [Obummer regime] officials [illegally] using unofficial e-mail accounts include former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Donald Berwick, the former head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.   Welcome to the most transparent administration in American history, where the Federal Communications Commission can regulate the Internet and keep those regulations secret before a vote, where top government officials can deliberately hide their e-mails from the public, but where your health records, income and e-mails are all government business.   The public and private spheres have now been completely reversed.   The federal government can punish its own employees for enforcing federal immigration law; if you oppose this, you are a racist, but if you hire an illegal immigrant, you will be fined or imprisoned.   The feds can monitor your electronic metadata, but they can hide their own correspondence from records requests..."

healing the racial divide through education
"African Americans and Latinos make up about 50% of California's high school graduates but less than 17% of students in its public university system.   According to the Pew Research Center, more blacks and Latinos are enrolling in college, but they lag behind in earning bachelor's degrees.   Blacks make up about 13% of the population, but just 9% of young adults with four year degrees.   Latinos account for 16% of the population and just 9% of bachelor's degrees.   (By contrast, Asian Americans make up about 5% of the population and hold 11% of bachelor's degrees.)   The difference is even more pronounced in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields...   Georgetown U freshman DR...: 'My former teachers simply did not push me to think past a basic level, to apply concepts, to move beyond memorizing facts and figures.'...   Asians also face well-documented discrimination in the college admissions process, needing to score about 140 points higher on the SAT than their white counterparts to gain admission to elite universities.   And while they make up a large segment of the STEM work-force, the American Institute for Economic Research found that Asian tech workers at American firms were paid an average of $8,146 less than whites...   Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.   The findings were shockingly simple: Asian American students were found to exert 'greater academic effort'.   In short, they work harder.   [And, I suspect, they work in ways more precisely aimed at doing what's needed to get the high grades in class and on standardized tests.]"

crony socialist Harry reid securied subsidies for aides' donors
Lachlan Markay: Washington DC Free Beacon
"Corporate donors to a green energy non-profit operated by senate minority-leader Harry Reid's (D-NV) former staffers and a current campaign operative have received billions of dollars in federal loan guarantees and grant money as a result of Reid's advocacy.   Fulcrum Bioenergy began contributing to the Clean Energy Project (CEP) in 2013.   One year later, the Nevada Democrat steered tens of millions of dollars in federal grant money to the California biofuel company.   Fulcrum is one of at least 9 corporate donors to the Clean Energy Project (CEP) that have secured federal financing for themselves or a client due in part to Reid's behind-the-scenes advocacy—activity that watch-dogs warn could be construed as unethical...   Far from denying a role in steering subsidies to donors to aides' group, Reid's office brags about it...   The Podesta Group, the lobbying firm founded by Podesta and his brother Tony, began representing Fulcrum in 2014 April, 5 months before that year's CEP summit -- and the $175M in federal grants that followed..."

USCIS "processed" 7M applications last year, but failed to deport
Tony Lee: Breitbart
Ryan Lovelace: National Review
"On Tuesday, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials revealed that the agency processed nearly seven million immigration-related applications in just one year alone (fiscal year 2014).   Because the agency does not have the resources to conduct in-person interviews with every applicant, officials noted that applicants for [president Barack Hussein Obummer's] Deferred Action for Childhood (DACA) program did not have to go though face-to-face interviews [let alone proper background investigations] before [unconstitutionally and illegally] being granted temporary amnesty.   Potential applicants for [president Barack Hussein Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] executive amnesty program for the [illegal alien] parents of U.S. citizens will also not be given in-person interviews if the [corrupt Obummer regime] is allowed to proceed with its implementation after the court case against it is resolved...   Donald Neufeld, the Associate Director of Service Center Operations for USCIS, told the senators that 'USCIS administers the world's largest immigration system that includes more than 100 immigrant and non-immigrant classifications and more than 200 different forms and applications.'...   Daniel Renaud, the Associate Director of Field Operations at the agency, said that because [applicants for unconstitutional and illegal] executive amnesty are not given 'status-granting benefits', they typically do not even undergo [a cursory] FBI name check that other immigrants are put through [let alone pass a proper background investigation].   That is concerning in light of USCIS Council president Kenneth Palinkas's belief that 'by not scrutinizing each and every applicant to the fullest extent possible to ensure America's security, we invite an even more catastrophic event then what occurred on 2001/09/11...   Our current immigration system leaves us vulnerable to terrorist threats and terrorism in general by providing entry avenues for people sworn to destroy America.   This is accomplished by lessening the vetting of each and every alien who applies for permanent residency or citizenship in the U.S.A.'...   Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who chairs the sub-committee, pointed out that lawful immigrants who apply for visas in various countries around the world have to be personally interviewed, and that [illegal aliens] who are seeking [unconstitutional and illegal] temporary amnesty are processed with [lower standards] and less scrutiny than those trying to come to the United States legally [which standards and checks are also far from reasonably conscientious].   Sessions noted that Palinkas has also criticized the agency's assembly-line adjudication process that often rubber-stamps applications.   When Renaud said that there is a 'layered' process to reading and processing applications in which different officials look at different parts of the application, Sessions said that is a dangerous system.   He said that because one official does not read the whole file, it removes the responsibility on the certifying officer because he can claim that another official 'did not pick up something' in the application...   'You just don't have the ability to do this [properly].', Sessions said, emphasizing that [Obummer] should never have demanded amnesty for millions of [illegal aliens] when there is not even enough staff and resources to [properly, conscientiously, and thoroughly] process legal immigrants."

"A report published last month by the Congressional Research Service explains why Iran's efforts to produce uranium enriched to the 20 percent level is a problem.   'LEU used in nuclear power reactors typically contains less than 5% uranium-235', said CRS, 'research reactor fuel can be made using 20% uranium-235; HEU used in nuclear weapons typically contains about 90% uranium-235.   Iran's production of LEU enriched to the 20% level has caused concern because such production requires approximately 90% of the effort necessary to produce weapons-grade HEU, which, as noted, contains approximately 90% uranium-235', said CRS."

"The rule of law is in grave danger, as federal regulators use ever thinner legal pretexts to enable vast public policy changes without votes by our elected representatives.   In a span of just seven days, the FCC declared the Internet a public utility, Congress acceded to DHS implementing executive amnesty, the president used a veto threat to protect the NLRB's ambush elections rule, and the Supreme Court's 4 [illiberal leftists] showed they are not just willing but enthusiastic to allow the IRS to ignore the plain language of [ObummerDoesn'tCare].   A great week for regulators, but a terrible week for everyone else.   The FCC order [over-regulating] the Internet was written by political operatives in the White House...   Now, the same radical pressure groups that have long pushed for such regulations, funded by $196M from George Soros and the Ford Foundation, are launching a major effort to scare congress -- the legitimate legislative branch of the federal government -- into sitting on their hands and not acting on the issue."

"Appearing on Fox News' The Kelly File, Napolitano argued that Mrs. Clinton may have committed a felony and 'the other way that she's in trouble is a person who knowingly and willfully destroys or conceals government records'...   'One is if she retained on her personal e-mail account using the Clinton server at her home or near her home in Chappaqua, New York, classified materials, classified documents, she arguably violated the same statute that general Petraeus has agreed that he will plead guilty to which prohibits retaining classified information in a non-government non-secured way.   That's a misdemeanor.   It's not a felony.   There's no grand jury.   There's no trial jury.   But the punishment is up to a year in jail and $100K fine for each document...   The other way that she's in trouble is a person who knowingly and willfully destroys or conceals government records.   This is a felony punishable in jail by up to 3 years.   And are you ready for this? Disqualification from holding public office under the United States of America in the future.'"

"'While [president Barack Hussein Obummer] quibbles about the most politically correct way to describe [those who have declared themselves] our enemies and uses the National Prayer Breakfast to criticize Christianity, religious minorities continue to face extreme persecution in the Middle East and far corners of the world.', Black said in a statement.   'From the kidnapping of Christian school-girls in Nigeria by Boko Haram, to the unjust imprisonment of pastor Saeed Abedini in Iran, to the savage beheading of 21 Coptic Christians at the hands of ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate, there is an urgent need for both congress and this administration to speak out and engage in this fight to protect religious freedom [in the USA and] abroad.'   Black's resolution would 'condemn violence against religious minorities in the Middle East and any actions that limit the free expression and practice of faith by these minorities'.   It would also reaffirm 'the commitment of the United States to promoting religious freedom and tolerance around the world'...   Legislation providing for such an appointment, championed by veteran religious freedom advocate representative Frank Wolf (R-VA), now retired, and co-sponsor representative Anna Eshoo (D-CA), was signed into law last August.   During its passage through congress, the State Department voiced opposition to the bill, which it said would duplicate existing efforts by other officials and could even be 'counter-productive'."

"Senior author Fernando Pardo-Manuel de Villena...said the scientific community has known about 95 genes that have a parent-of-origin effect, called 'imprinted genes'.   How they play out in disease depends on whether the mutation was mom's or dad's.   But the new research shows that thousands of other genes also have a 'parent-of-origin effect'...   'We found that the vast majority of genes -- about 80% -- possessed variants that altered gene expression.', said first author James Crowley, assistant professor of genetics.   'And this was when we discovered a new, genome-wide expression imbalance in favor of the dad in several hundred genes.   This imbalance resulted in offspring whose brain gene expression was significantly more like their father's...   We now know that mammals express more genetic variance from the father.   So imagine that a certain kind of mutation is bad.   If inherited from the mother, the gene wouldn't be expressed as much as it would be if it were inherited from the father.'...   'By starting families in their 30s, 40s and beyond, men could be increasing the chances that their children will develop autism, schizophrenia and other diseases often linked to new mutations.', wrote Ewen Calloway.   That study noted that fathers passed on nearly four times as many new mutations as did mothers...   Scientists at the University of Cambridge have suggested that teenage parents may be more likely to pass on birth defects to their children.   A different study said teenage fathers also pass on a lot of mutations, maybe 30% more than fathers in their 20s..."

senate hearing exposes Obummer regime's $1G amnesty slush fund and other USCIS improprieties
"On Tuesday, March 3, 3 senior USCIS managers appeared before the U.S. senate sub-committee on Immigration and the National Interest, chaired by senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), to answer questions about the agency's implementation of the president's executive amnesties, the latest (and largest) of which is now held up by a legal challenge from 26 states.   Their answers, together with other information provided to the subcommittee, confirm that USCIS has been hoarding fees paid by legal immigrants to subsidize the planned new executive amnesty for an estimated 5M illegal aliens and failing to screen applicants adequately to prevent criminal aliens from obtaining benefits.   In addition, the agency has created a pathway to citizenship for many of these illegal aliens...   USCIS Slush Fund for Amnesty.   Moore revealed that USCIS has accumulated a 'reserve fund' of 'unexpended revenues' that now totals $1.2G ([giga=billion=1K*1M]).   The agency has a policy to maintain a reserve balance of $600M to help it manage in the event of revenue fluctuations, but USCIS is using these funds to launch the new executive amnesty programs (without any statutory authorization).   One cannot help but wonder how this reserve fund got so big over the years, because by law USCIS is supposed to charge fees that reflect the exact cost of processing the benefits.   Did they overcharge millions of legal applicants or cut corners on the processing of benefits? Both?   Senator Tom Tillis (R-NC) asked why USCIS has not used its huge cash reserves to reduce the processing back-logs for legal applicants instead of setting up unconstitutional work permit programs for illegal aliens.   USCIS had already spent $11M getting ready for the new executive amnesty until it was blocked by a federal judge in mid-February.   About $7M was spent to lease office space in Crystal City, VA, and those rent payments still need to be made whether the program goes forward or not.   The total cost of the processing facility alone is estimated to be $26.2M.   Before the program was stopped, USCIS had hired '1 or 2' people to work on the program and had made job offers to 360 others, which are now on hold.   The plan is for the amnesty applications to be adjudicated by 700-800 brand-new employees, with no experience in evaluating immigration applications.   Extralegal Path to Citizenship.   Renaud confirmed, under questioning from senator Mike Lee (R-UT), that USCIS is indeed inappropriately allowing some DACA grantees to get on a path to U.S. citizenship, despite [president Obummer's] assertions that this would not happen...   Lax Screening 'Legalizes' Criminals...   Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) recited a list of crimes that would not necessarily disqualify an alien for DACA: child pornography, child abuse, assault, kidnapping, larceny, robbery, theft, and voter fraud.   He asked the witnesses if they agreed that USCIS policy should be to refuse deferred action status and work permits to aliens convicted of domestic violence and sex offenders; none of the 3 witnesses would say 'yes'."

Marco Rubio's gullibility, misleading statements, and tendency to condone illegal immigration and over-stays, his desire to increase the already vastly excessive H-1B guest-work program, should end his presidential hopes and his seat in the senate
"Marco Rubio (R-FL) is either exceptionally gullible or just plain dishonest.   In either case, he has repeatedly demonstrated that he is not qualified to be president of the United States.   Rubio would have us believe that he didn't understand the importance of securing the borders before granting legal status and a pathway to citizenship to millions of illegal aliens when he signed onto the Gang of 8's amnesty bill.   In fact, Rubio was so excited to be playing with the big boys that Chuck Schumer (D-NY), John McCain (R-AZ), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had no problem getting him to be the poster boy for amnesty.   Rubio's failure to understand that he was being played and his inability to recognize that what he was selling was amnesty raises the question of how he would fare against the likes of Vladimir Putin, the leaders of Iran, or amnesty advocates if he were elected president.   Likely not very well...   OTOH, if Rubio is aware of the job-related crimes committed by illegal aliens, as he should be, it means that he is deliberately misleading Americans when he asserts that illegal aliens are law-abiding."

Netanyahu's biblical lesson from queen Esther
"Esther was a woman who lived 500 years before Christ, a woman who the Bible says 'found favor in all who looked upon her'.   Her beauty so besotted the king of Persia -- present-day Iran -- that he married her.   Moreover, [Artaxerxes ii/Achashuerus] listened when she told him that he had been duped by the evil Haman, who tried to persuade the king to destroy the tiny minority of Jews in the kingdom.   Esther revealed herself to her husband as a Jewess, exposed Haman's plot, and the king sent Haman to a gallows Haman had erected to kill Jews.   Esther is honored among Jews for saving the race, and she is honored by Christians as well.   Eli Weisel, the Nobel peace laureate who was recognized by the prime minister at the end of his speech to the joint session of congress, cites Purim and the story of Esther as a reminder of why it's only wise to be wary of modern Persians like Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, another Haman who vows to 'annihilate, murder and destroy the Jews, young and old, children and women'."

Obummer down-plays importance of Keystone XL pipe-line, ignores State Dept. research report
"Government analyses of Keystone found the project will support about 42K jobs, including about 16K jobs created as a direct result of the pipeline itself.   About 4K of those would be construction jobs to physically build the pipe-line.   Another 26K jobs would come as an 'indirect' result of Keystone.   Those jobs would include, for example, retail and service positions in areas around the construction zone...   Mark Cooper said. 'Keystone XL will be constructed safely and with minimal environmental and climate impact...   Instead of sending billions of dollars overseas to regimes that are fundamentally opposed to American values, the oil that is needed can be sourced right here in North America and most of the money stays here, too.'..."

  "As recently as the year 2000, some 12K enlisted personnel were on food stamps. That is shameful. The Clinton administration's solution was not to pay military personnel more for their skilled, brave service to our country but rather to 're-tabulate' the compensation for the lowest-ranking troops. 'Re-tabulate' meant to 'pencil-whip' the statistics so the poor souls were no longer eligible for food stamps. Who cares about how they feed their children? Just declare them ineligible and solve the embarrassing political problem of soldiers on food stamps." --- G. Gordon Liddy 2002 _When I Was a Kid, This Was a Free Country_ pp103-104

Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel are troubled by Obummer regime offers of a "nuclear umbrella" for Arab regimes
"The Jerusalem Post and Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat reported last week that [Obummer regime] is ready to ease concerns over the Iranian nuclear threat by offering the Gulf States a 'nuclear umbrella' -- a declaration that any use of nuclear weapons against them would be considered use against the U.S.A. as is now policy for such major military allies as NATO, Japan and South Korea.   Mr. Netanyahu said in an interview on CBS's 'Face the Nation' that he didn't know whether the reports are accurate, but 'if it's true it raises 2 troubling questions.   The first is it means that Iran has a nuclear weapons program [not only has a weapons program but that they have or very soon will have nuclear weapons] -- otherwise, why offer, presumably the Gulf States, why offer them nuclear protection?'   Mr. Netanyahu said.   'The second is, if it's true, it signals a shift in U.S. policy from preventing a nuclear Iran to containing one, and that's not good.'..."

are American Jews traumatized?
Between 1929 & 1948, about 8,300 died in sectarian conflict within the British mandate.
777 died and 2,586 wounded Israelis in 1976's 6-Day War; among the attackers, 15K Egyptians, 2,500 Syrians, and 800 Jordanians died. 9K Palestinian families were re-united in 1967 and more than 60K Palestinians were allowed to return to Israel.
In 1973's Yom Kippur war about 2,700 Israelis died, 8K wounded, 293 captured; about 10K Egyptians died, 8,400 captured; 3,200 Syrians died, 392 captured; 278 Iraqis died, 900 wounded, 13 captured; 23 Jordanians died, 77 wounded; 6 Moroccans were captured; and unknown numbers of casualties from Cuba, Kuwait, North Korea, Saudi Arabia and Tunisia.
Since 1948, about 23K have died and between 73K & 87K total casualties in Arab-Israeli conflicts.
Since 2006, some 600 have died in struggles between the Fatah and Hamas terrorist groups.
 
Circa 50CE about 2.5M lived in Israel, almost all of them Jewish.
In about 1550, Bernard Lewis reported, there was a total population of about 30K.
Sergio DellaPergola estimated a population of about 275K in 1800 (7K Jewish, 22K Christian, 246K Muslim); 532K in 1890 (43K Jewish, 57K Christian, 432K Muslim); 689K in 1914 (94K Jewish, 70K Christian, 525K Muslim).
Roberto Bachi estimated that, from 1800 to 1914, an average of some 6K-7K Muslims immigrated each year.
In 1920 the League of Nations estimated about 700K (about 10.8% Jewish, 11% Christian, 78% Muslim).
The Arab population of Palestine nearly doubled during the British Mandate era, from 670K in 1922 to over 1.2M in 1948; Martin Gilbert estimated that 50K Arabs immigrated between 1919 & 1939; while Itzhak Galnoor estimated Arab immigration from 1922 to 1948 at about 100K.
Sergio DellaPergola estimated 1.97M in 1947 (630K Jewish, 143K Christian, 1.18M Muslim); and in 1948 the UN estimated 1.9M (32% Jewish, 68% Arabs).
In 2014 there were over 6.2M Jewish living in Israel, plus about 4.47M "Palestinian" occupying Israel, and 1.7M in Palestine=Gaza.

Obummer regime's $100M tech training/job plan (funded by H-1B visa fees) is under fire
CIO
"The federal program, called TechHire, will get its money from H-1B visa fees, and the major users of this visa are IT services firms that out-source jobs [i.e. domestic and cross-border bodyshops and off-shorers]...   Another source of controversy will be the White House's assertion that there are 545K unfilled IT jobs.   It has not explained how it arrived at this number...   [Various researchers using BLS and Dept. of Education figures have concluded that we have between 1.8M and 12M unemployed and under-employed involuntarily-out-of-field US citizen STEM workers.]   'If you can do the job, you should get the job.', [Obummer] said...   'It is a profound irony that the White House is funding this initiative through the hiring of foreign guest-workers.', said Stephen Miller, a spokesman for U.S. senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who has been critical of legislation to increase the H-1B cap.   'I imagine this will be of little comfort to the California Edison workers asked to train their H-1B replacements.'   [It still may be an improvement over past abuse of the fund, to train construction workers, oil-press operators, etc.]   Making matters worse, said Miller, is the White House support for raising the H-1B cap, 'meaning that countless more Americans who pursue IT careers will find themselves locked out of the profession to which they have devoted their professional lives'.   Norm Matloff, a professor of computer science at the University of California-Davis who has long challenged the idea that there's a shortage of technical talent, said 'the sub-text of the White House announcement is to justify expanding the H-1B program'.   Matloff said it's the 'old Let's train Americans so that employers don't need to hire H-1Bs argument, and that argument is demonstrably false.', he said.   'Just look at all the cases, including the recent Southern California Edison incident, in which Americans are laid off and forced to train their foreign-worker replacements; Clearly, it's the foreign workers who need the training, not the Americans.', said Matloff.   'The fact is that employers don't want to hire Americans; they want cheap, immobile labor.'   The estimate of 545K IT job openings was met with skepticism by Victor Janulaitis, the CEO of Janco Associates, which analyzes the tech labor market.   He said the number of job openings is 'nowhere near' that estimate, and may be closer to 60K.   By the White House estimate it would mean that nearly 17% of the 'IT' labor market has unfilled jobs.   But a lot of the openings are for [extremely] specific skills and experience, and not entry level jobs, said Janulaitis.   Technologists with specialties in security, containerization, cloud-based apps and 'big data' [mostly privacy violation] can find jobs...   David Foote, the CEO of Foote Partners, an 'IT' labor analyst firm, said an accounting of the tech labor force comes down to how 'IT' jobs are defined.   The feds use a narrow definition, which puts the labor force at about 5M 'IT' jobs.   His firm, however, estimates that there may be as many as 24M 'IT' jobs ['IT-related' jobs], and counts [jobs outside of a software/hardware product development firm or 'software publisher' and] jobs outside an 'IT' department [accounting, personnel records, supply-chain management...], as technology is embedded in all lines of a business."
Why not simply use that fund to off-set tax breaks for employers (not bodyshoppers) to interview (transportation, hotel, a couple meals), relocate (transportation, temporary housing, meals for a couple weeks), and train (2-12 weeks for new-hires, 1-3 weeks for retained employees) US citizens.   This way, a bright software engineer with experience, stuck unemployed or under-employed in Kobuk Alaska, or Winterville Maine, or Palmdale Florida, or Alamota Kansas can have a chance to jump-start his career in the wake of the GHWBush-Clinton-Shrub-Obummer economic depression that has devastated the field.   The employer gets someone with exactly the hyper-specific training he wants them to have, who maybe always wanted a software product development job, or an accounting software job, or a data-base design and admin job, or a CAD/CAM/CAE software job, or an Internet-of-Things embedded hardware/software development job at the employer's offices near Pekin Ohio or Pekin Illinois or Chippewa Falls Wisconsin or Chickasha Oklahoma or Arden Hills Minnesota or Flat Creek Tennessee or Circleville Ohio or Circleville Texas.   These government grants for training scams, OTOH, have always been crony socialism, under-handed transfers of funds to political chums...jgo

playing at the margins of the temporary restraining order against Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal amnesty for illegal aliens and "work permits" for spouses of H-1B grantees
"One sure-fire way to figure out if White House officials have been playing at the margins of the TRO and doing their best to ignore it (even as they scramble to avoid a finding of contempt) is to dig into one of the lesser-known programs of the executive action package: The 'Central American Minors' (CAM) program deals with setting up 'refugee' centers in Central America.   (Keep in mind that under the law, a 'minor' is anyone up to the age of 18; they are not just toddlers and other children of tender age.)   First notice of the program was quietly, almost surreptitiously, announced by the Department of State (DoS) through a fact sheet put up on its website on 2014 November 14, a few days prior to the president's nationwide address on executive action.   Next followed a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Refugee Resettlement fact sheet published on 2015 January 30.   The last drip of this trickle of information came from a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) bureau, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which published its fact sheet on February 9 of this year..."

Obummer to announce new effort to bias high-tech training boondoggle
Why not just give the employers a tax break for investing in new-hire and retained-employee training?   The training will be directly relevant to the managers' goals.   It will open up jobs to the long-term unemployed STEM professionals.   No, instead, the politicians are going back to their crony socialist ways of showering graft on their political friends to go through the motions of ineffective training, lacking in substance, on subjects in which neither the STEM professionals nor their employers are interested.   It will give the "trainers" a financial boost and that's about all the corrupt politicians intend to accomplish.

"The judge who blocked [president Barack Hussein Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] executive action on immigration has ordered the Justice Department to answer allegations the government misled him about part of the plan.   U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen has ordered federal government lawyers to appear in his court March 19 in Brownsville.   The hearing is in response to a filing last week in which the government acknowledged some deportation reprieves were granted before Hanen's Feb. 16 injunction.   Government attorneys had previously said officials wouldn't accept such requests under [Obummer's] action until Feb. 18."

economist tells congress that US federal government may be in worse fiscal shape than Greece
"The U.S. [federal government] has a $210T 'fiscal gap' and 'may well be in worse fiscal shape than any developed country, including Greece', Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff told members of the Senate Budget Committee in written and oral testimony on Feb. 25.   'The first point I want to get across is that our nation is broke.', Kotlikoff testified.   'Our nation's broke, and it's not broke in 75 years or 50 years or 25 years or 10 years.   It's broke today...   After all, federal debt in the hands of the public is only 74% of GDP.   Yes, this is double the debt-to-GDP ratio recorded a decade ago.   But it's still a far cry from Italy's 135% debt-to-GDP ratio or Greece's 175% ratio.'...   For example, starting now, eliminating the fiscal gap would require an immediate 58.5% increase in all federal taxes or a 37.7% permanent, across-the-board decrease in federal spending.   But if the government waits 30 years, it would require a 77% tax increase or a 46.5% cut in spending by 2045 to eliminate the fiscal gap..."

"I guess it's my earliest remembrances of Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, MacArthur and their ilk that formed my image of leaders.   All were men with a solid dignity, a sense of intense national pride and a persona of easy confidence and trust that inspired a nation to fight and win a world war.   I remember Roosevelt addressing the nation after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, declaring war and instilling a fierce sense of patriotism, while fanning the flames of anger the Americans were already feeling because of Japan's sneak attack.   I was only five years old, but even so, the fatherly, authoritative voice of FDR moved something inside me.   I knew deep down that no Swastika or Rising Sun would ever fly above our beloved United States of America.   America went to war with both barrels blazing, no holds barred, no quarter given, no doubt in anybody's mind about who our enemy was, and even a five-year-old kid considered Hitler, Hirohito and Mussolini the most evil men on the face of the earth.   Bigger than life, charismatic military leaders like Dwight Eisenhower and Douglas MacArthur planned the battles and lead the way, and general George S. Patton, fleet-admiral William 'Bull' Halsey, Eddie Rickenbacker were household names in World War 2 America..."

Once Pyongyang was ready to come out as a nuclear power, it threw out the nuclear inspectors, opened the sealed nuclear sites, vacated its signature on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and began testing nuclear bombs.

is Georgia the least intelligent state? What is the peach state doing wrong?
"Georgia officials insist on using the worst theories and methods.   Predictably, their schools get bad results.   To cover up the embarrassing results (of course, the officials would not think of adopting better methods), the schools create elaborate cheating mechanisms.   This works until the truth leaks out.   Scandal ensues..   it's adult bureaucrats who are cheating, not students.   Why did school officials decide that cheating is necessary?   Were they never taught how to run a school?   Or is the truth even worse than that, and they have embraced all the worst ideas in the hope of getting bad results?...   the people in charge don't value reading highly at all...   A child who cannot read can't learn history, geography, science, literature, current events, or very much else...   Revealingly, the state of Georgia is phonics-phobic.   Almost all school web-sites in Georgia specifically brag that they teach sight-words, or Dolch words.   These sites talk about Dr. Dolch, a quack from 50 years ago, as if he were a god...   Apparently no one knows who Dr. Flesch is -- namely, the guy who sold 8M beloved books explaining why Dolch was a scammer..."

'A lot of our colleagues felt this was an oath-of-office vote to uphold the Constitution.', he said. College economics professor from Virginia, representative Dave Brat, explains that he supported Boehner until it became clear the speaker would acquiesce on [demands for even more excessive immigration and amnesty for illegal aliens], adding he is 'highly skeptical that we couldn't have found a way.

  "It is important and right that all privileges of the law be ours, but it is vastly more important that we be prepared for the exercises of these privileges.', he said in his historic Atlanta Exposition speech. By linking rights and responsibilities, [Booker T. Washington] was able to address both the blacks and the whites in the audience on common ground. And by linking the fates of the 2 races, he was able to enlist the support of some whites by arguing that blacks would either help lift up the South or help to drag it down. W.E.B. du Bois likewise said to Southern whites: 'If you do not lift them up, they will pull you down.'" --- Thomas Sowell _Black Rednecks & White Liberals_ pg232 (citing Booker T.

US ICE: of 2,059 illegal aliens who committed additional crimes and were arrested in the first 5 days of March, 23% had re-entered the USA after having been deported, returned or removed
"Of the 2,059 criminals arrested, 1,013 -- almost half -- had been convicted of more than one crime; and 1,036 had been convicted of a felony, including voluntary manslaughter, child pornography, robbery and kidnapping.   Of the total 2,059 criminals arrested, 58 are known gang members or affiliates, and 89 are convicted sex offenders.   An additional 912 illegal aliens were arrested for multiple 'significant misdemeanors', mostly repeated convictions for driving under the influence...   one Mexican national already had been deported 6 times [between 2003 & 2013] when he was arrested once again in Oxnard, California...   Of the 2,059 who were arrested in March, 163 have been presented to U.S. attorneys to be prosecuted, Saldana said.   This includes aliens who will be charged with illegal re-entry, which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison -- at American [tax-victims'] expense...   In 2013, for example, ICE freed 36,007 convicted criminal aliens from detention who were awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings, according to a document obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies..."

"Climate change...covers all weather phenomena throughout all 4.54G years of Earth's existence...   Today CO2 concentrations worldwide average about 380 parts per million.   This level of CO2 concentration is trivial compared with the concentrations during earlier geologic periods.   For example, 460M years ago, during the Ordovician Period, CO2 concentrations were 4,400 ppm, and temperatures then were about the same as they are today.   With such high levels of CO2, at least according to the warmers, the Earth should have been boiling...   Climate change predictions have been wrong for decades...   In 2010, German economist and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change official Ottmar Edenhofer said, 'One must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy.'   The article in which that interview appeared summarized Edenhofer's views this way: 'Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection...   The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world's resources will be negotiated.'..."

  "I think with you that nothing is of more importance for the public weal, than to form and train up youth in wisdom and virtue.   Wise and good men are, in my opinion, the strength of the state; more so than riches or arms.   I think also, that general virtue is more probably to be expected and obtained from the education of youth, than from the exhortations of adult persons; bad habits and vices of the mind being, like diseases of the body, more easily prevented than cured.   I think, moreover, that the talents for the education of youth are the gift of God; and that he on whom they are bestowed, whenever a way is opened for the use of them, is as strongly called as if he heard a voice from heaven." --- Benjamin Franklin (quoted in doctor Ben S. Carson & Candy Carson 2012 _America the Beautiful: ReDiscovering What Made This Nation Great_ pp104-105; citing William J.

USCIS favors illegal aliens over US citizens and legal immigrants
"The document reveals that processing of most applications for legal immigration benefits, including the highest priority family categories, such as spouses of U.S. citizens, were de-emphasized so that the agency could instead focus on approving the [illegal aliens]...   According to a chart provided, the following types of applicants are considered deserving of 'special emphasis' during the DACA adjudication period:   Employers asking for temporary workers (with or without paying the premium processing fee);   Applicants for advance parole (a travel document only needed by illegal aliens with temporary status);   Refugees needing a travel document;   Employers sponsoring immigrant workers; U.S. parents adopting children from overseas;   Applicants for work permits (DACA applicants, other illegal aliens, and temporary visitors);   Military naturalization applicants.   All other types of applications were considered not deserving of special emphasis.   These applications had to wait longer for processing, even though the fees were the same as ever (actually higher, since they were just raised in 2010).   They included all family-based immigrant petitions and applications, refugee and asylee green cards, relatives of refugees and asylees, applicants for temporary protected status, victims of human trafficking, crime victims, immigrants seeking to naturalize, and anyone needing a replacement document...   In 2013 alone USCIS [unconstitutionally and illegally] processed more than 480K DACA applications..."

"But if you listened to [Obummer's] speech, you'd think that little progress has been made since that time.   And that Dr. King and others were marching for redistribution of wealth, 'gay rights', and other causes, which had nothing to do with black emancipation.   I participated in civil rights marches in Alabama.   Dr. King fought for equality of opportunity for blacks; but he was not in favor of reprisals against whites.   And as a Baptist Minister he was not about promoting homosexuality.   If you doubt it, read the advice Dr. King gave to a conflicted young man as printed in Ebony Magazine..."

senators on immigration sub-committee want to know how many illegal aliens were unconstitutionally and illegally given Socialist Insecurity Numbers by the Obummer regime
John Hayward: Breitbart
"Senators Ben Sasse and Jeff Sessions say about 90K [NIGHTMARERS] got [SINs] between 2012 Aug. 15, when the first applications rolled in, and 2013 Jan. 8.   In a letter to [Socialist Insecurity Kommissar] Carolyn W. Colvin, the senators asked how many more were granted after that.   [SINs] are also the key to unlocking a number of benefits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit [EITC], [Socialist Insecurity] disability payments or [Socialist Insecurity's] supplemental income program."

wage increases... with an asterisk
"Wages are among our most scrutinized economic indicators.   It's no secret why.   We'd all like a pay raise.   But there's a second, less-recognized reason.   Wages are considered a precursor to higher inflation.   If they rise sharply, prices will follow.   That's the theory.   It's wrong -- or at least dangerously incomplete... The fact that wages haven't sped up is widely said to demonstrate that there's still ample 'slack' in the labor market, despite persistent declines in the unemployment rate (now 5.5% [yet considerably above what was considered full employment until the Carter admin]) [extremely long durations of unemployment, low employment/population ratios and low labor-force participation rates, worse full-time/part-time employment and long-term/temporary employment ratios] and hefty monthly pay-roll job increases (295K in February [according to the establishment survey])..."

Susan Jones _Cybercast News Service_
corrupt Obummer/Holder DoJ invokes "separation of powers" to argue for Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal amnesty of illegal aliens
The corrupt Obummer/Holder DoJ asked a federal appeals court to suspend a lower court's injunction requiring faithful execution of immigration and border and port protection laws.
 
The US constitution allows states to inspect people and goods entering the country through that state's ports and borders, and allows charging fees to cover the costs of such inspections.   State, local, and federal officials are "bound by oath" to "preserve, protect and defend" the federal constitution and constitutional laws (article 6 clause 3) to "establish an uniform rule of naturalization" (article 1, section 8, clause 4), which the Obummer regime is belligerently refusing to execute, contrary to the constitution's requirement that the executive "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed" (article 2 section 3 clause 4).   The constitution also requires the federal government to guarantee the states a republican form of government and to assist in defending them against invasions.
 
The federal district court has required the executive to faithfully execute the laws, and to stop its unconstitutional and illegal intention and practice to refuse to act contrary to those laws, and its unconstitutional and illegal practice of preventing the states from defending themselves and refusing to help them defend themselves from invasion.
 
The US constitution does not allow the president to make up, amend, ignore, or intentionally refuse to carry out immigration and naturalization laws and laws pertaining to non-immigrant visas, but only to comply with and faithfully carry out and enforce those laws as enacted by both houses of congress and signed by some president.   Obummer publicly admitted this on over 20 occasions.
 
Instead, the Obummer regime is refusing to defend USA borders and ports, refusing to repel invaders, refusing to remove invaders and visa over-stayers in a timely manner, refusing contrary to law to administer non-immigrant visas in such a way as to prevent harm to US citizen workers and green card holders.
 
The Obummer regime is refusing to secure, refusing to protect the USA homeland.   Obummer's current schemes would set aside established constitutional laws, and unconstitutionally dictate substitute law only from the current executive.   In so doing, he is creating a scheme of extra-legal and extra-constitutional privileges and hand-outs for law-breakers.
 
If the circuit court sets aside the district court's injunction, the Obummer regime will intentionally cause states and US citizens to suffer additional harm.   They will burden states with additional costs.   They will burden US citizens with greater federal debts, with a worsenening of the already dysfunctional job markets, and with decreased personal security.

  "The rise of blacks into professional and other high-level occupations was greater in the years preceding the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than in the years following passage of that act. What had happened was a dramatic increase in the numbers of blacks with college and post-graduate education. Prior to the First World War, fewer than 5K college degrees had been granted to black students in the entire history of the United States, but, by 1935, that had increased 5-fold -- and by 1947 the back colleges alone granted in 1 year more degrees than blacks had ever received in all the years perior to the First World War. Increases in the numbers of doctorates received by blacks were also dramatic." --- Thomas Sowell _Black Rednecks & White Liberals_ pg241 (citing Thomas Sowell 1984 _Civil Rights: Rhetoric or Reality?_ pg49; E.

"Mair's support for amnesty for illegal aliens, wide-open-borders immigration policies, and public advocacy for the senate [8 Gangsters amnesty bill (S744)] is sure to dog Walker in Iowa, South Carolina, and other early presidential states.   During the senate [8 Gangsters bill (S744)] fight, Mair very publicly and very aggressively promoted the amnesty bill—pushing it to media and making the case for the need for it over and over again.   She claims her advocacy was done out of the good of her [dark, twisted] heart, for free, because for religious reasons she believes in amnesty and open borders.   But Mair wouldn't answer who was paying her bills for her advocacy during the time-frame of the [8 Gangsters bill (S744)] in early 2013 through the end of the last congress -- when asked by Breitbart News if any specific tech [companies' executives] or a select group of Wall Street billionaires were paying her.   'We're contractually barred from disclosing our clients.', Mair said.   That could mean anyone -- even foreign [company executives] potentially -- were paying her during the time-frame she was publicly advocating for the amnesty bill.   While she didn't have to disclose it to the public at the time now that she's hitched to Walker the Wisconsin governor owns everything she said and did...   [Steve Deace] said the issues that Mair is bringing into the Walker campaign are her support for amnesty [for illegal aliens], her support of same-sex 'marriage', and her support of abortion.   'If you go to her web-site, she's got her own little pro-killing apologetic she posts up there.', Deace said.   'Those are bad enough but where this delves beyond just issue disagreement into amateur hour is the fact that while Scott Walker is having a debutante ball at the Iowa Freedom Summit hosted by Steve King -- his big coming out party -- she is on Twitter ripping the event and ripping Iowans, saying Iowans are embarrassing that as soon as Iowa loses its first in the nation status the better we'll all be, that we're just a bunch of government dependents.   How do you not vet people?'...   Deace said this massive misstep on Walker's part opens the door to a [better] more conservative candidate like senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), senator Rand Paul (R-KY), or Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal -- or someone else -- to step up into the void...   Wiley and other Walker spokes-persons have not answered several questions about the governor's position on immigration.   Specifically, everyone says the border must secured, but Walker's team won't answer any questions about whether the governor supports an increase in H-1B visas, with all the scandals breaking out of Silicon Valley putting Americans out of work while replacing them with imported cheap [young, pliant] foreign labor [with questionable ethics].   There is also no answer on whether he supports any increase in legal immigration, which would jeopardize American jobs due to a surge in the labor supply..."

IBEW union staffer, former US Marine, Pat Lavin, says greed of corporate executives is behind push for H-1B visas
"Massive lay-offs are being spear-headed by the multi-billion dollar Southern California Edison utilities company, which is terminating scores of American IT workers and replacing them with immigrant IT workers, from a slew of foreign counties, who are willing to work for far less compensation.   These immigrants are in the U.S. on an H-1B visa program.   'We don't need foreign workers.   We have plenty of Americans who are fully capable and equipped to carry out these jobs.   It's an absolute issue of corporate greed; nothing more nothing less.', former Edison employee and Marine, Pat Lavin, told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview late last week.   Lavin is a stalwart Democrat who serves as a business manager and financial secretary for the the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local #47.   'Edison are master liars.', Lavin cautioned, quipping that he 'caught them telling the truth last week and they tried to lie their way out of it.'   Lavin spoke with Breitbart News as one of the California Edison workers laid off in the scandal that representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) and senate Judiciary committee chairman senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) have hammered the company for.   Grassley called the lay-offs 'heartless' and Issa argued that this appears to be an abuse of the program.   America is facing a surplus of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) workers who are unemployed or have been laid off from work due to companies, like SoCal Edison, that have been outsourcing American jobs to immigrants.   According to an article from Robert Charette in IEEE Spectrum, the so-called 'STEM crisis' -- where tech [executives] like FB founder Mark Zuckerberg, who claim they 'need' to import cheap foreign labor -- is a myth...   the reality of what is happening is that SoCal Edison is replacing $95K annual wage earners with foreigners who will take $60K to $65K instead..."

civil rights commissioner Peter Kirsanow also asks whether attorney-general nominee Loretta Lynch will conscientiously enforce immigration laws
"In a March 14 letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Kirsanow says Lynch 'should not be confirmed' if she fails to explain exactly where she stands on Obama's [unconstitutional and illegal] executive actions and how she will enforce the law as it is written...   '[Lynch's earlier statement to the senate judiciary committee] is contrary to U.S. immigration laws.', Kirsanow wrote in his letter to McConnell.   'Illegal aliens are prohibited from working in this country.   Yet the nominee for the office ultimately charged with enforcing those laws asserts otherwise.'   Kirsanow also cited the negative impact of illegal immigration on black employment, both in job opportunities and in wages, particularly for black males who are more likely than other groups to hold low-skilled jobs...   Kirsanow also warned that granting amnesty to illegal immigrants will encourage more people to come to the United States illegally.   'The 1986 amnesty did not solve the illegal immigration problem.   To the contrary, that amnesty established the precedent that if you come to America illegally, eventually you will obtain legal status.   Even a rumor of amnesty will increase illegal immigration, as demonstrated by the cross-border surge in the summer of 2014.'..."

on election eve, Netanyahu rejects carving out a "Palestinian state" from the middle of Israel rather than the traditional and established Palestinian state of the Gaza strip
"Anyone who establishes a Palestinian state or withdraws from territory will be yielding that territory to the forces of radical Islam, who will use it to attack Israel, he told Israel's NRG news site.   Those who ignored that reality are 'burying their heads in the sand', he said, adding that Israel's left-wing was doing just that, time and time again.'.   That places small parties -- ranging from right-leaning 'ultra-Orthodox' factions to economy-focused centrists -- in potential kingmaker roles, as major party leaders try to reach their objective of a coalition controlling more than 60 seats in the 120-member Knesset."

CAIR-Florida's new Islamic extremist youth
Joe Kaufman: Front Page Magazine
"CAIR was established in 1994 June as being part of the American Palestine Committee, an umbrella organization acting as a terrorist enterprise run by then-global Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook, who was based in the U.S.A. at the time and who now operates out of Egypt as a spokesman for Hamas.   In 2007 and 2008, amidst two federal trials, the U.S. government named CAIR a co-conspirator in the raising of millions of dollars for Hamas.   Along with ISIS/ISIS/IS/daesh/caliphate, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram, CAIR is listed as a terrorist organization by United Arab Emirates (UAE).   Both Abdelaziz and Kurnaz came to CAIR by way of Emerge USA, Abdelaziz being the Tampa-area Regional Field Coordinator of Emerge and Kurnaz being the Central Florida Regional Director of Emerge.   Emerge USA, like CAIR, has a friendly -- even patriotic -- sounding name, yet the reality of the organization is that it presents a dangerous facade.   Emerge is a politically active Islamist group whose goal is to place radical Muslims into positions of influence and power.   The head of Emerge, Khurrum Wahid, who previously served as a legal advisor for CAIR, is a South Florida attorney who has built a name for himself by representing high profile terrorists.   His past clients include: Rafiq Sabir, who received a 25 year prison sentence for conspiring to provide material support to al-Qaeda; Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was given a life sentence for being a member of al-Qaeda and for plotting to assassinate president George W. Bush [Shrub]; and Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami al-Arian, who was deported to Turkey last month..."

immigration nightmare: exponential executive lawlessness
Jewish World Review
World Net Daily
"I wonder whether most people truly understand the scope and import of [Obummer's unconstitutional and] lawless order to halt deportations and allow work permits for up to 5M immigrants living illegally in the United States.   Do they understand that he doesn't have the constitutional authority to do this?   Do they understand that he admitted not having the constitutional authority to do this?   Do they understand that congress considered and rejected such action when it declined to pass the [NIGHTMARE Act]?   Do they understand that under [Obummer's] rule, these immigrants will be eligible for [Socialist Insecurity] payments and even receive credit, in some instances, for sums they paid into the [Socialist Insecurity] system while using fraudulent [Socialist Insecurity numbers [SINs]?   How much contempt for the law can a chief executive officer of the United States government demonstrate?   The Daily Caller is reporting that a Congressional Research Service memo provided to the Senate Judiciary committee states that 'under the 2014 November 20, policy memorandum, foreign nationals who receive deferred action status may be eligible for work authorization.   As a result, a foreign national who receives deferred action status may be able to have all of his or her [Socialist Insecurity-covered] earnings count toward 'qualifying' for a [Socialist Insecurity] benefit (all earnings from 'authorized' and 'unauthorized' work)'.   This means that these immigrants will profit from their double wrong-doing -- being here illegally and using a fraudulent [Socialist Insecurity number (SIN)] -- at the hands of the very government that instituted those laws and whose duty it is to enforce them.   These earnings could count toward their retirement, disability and survivor benefits...   More importantly, do they realize he's the primary person standing in the way of structural entitlement reform, which is necessary to avert the inevitable federal fiscal calamity?...   In its motion, the high-handed DoJ characterized the District Court's injunction as 'interfering with immigration enforcement'.   That would make George Orwell proud, for in fact, the District Court is doing just the opposite; it is trying to make the [Obummer regime] enforce the existing law, not the [unconstitutional] illegal [diktat] that [Obummer] whisked into existence with his pen and phone..."

Selma and voting rights triumph
Jewish World Review
Town Hall
"March 7th was the 50th anniversary of 'Bloody Sunday', the first attempt by black protesters to march from Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery to demand voting rights.   Their march was brutally halted by Alabama state troopers acting under the orders of [Democrat] governor George Wallace.   The protesters weren't deterred.   On 1965 March 25, the reverend Martin Luther King ii led thousands to the completion of the 54-mile pilgrimage from Selma to Montgomery.   Dr. King rightfully described the protest as 'a shining moment in the conscience of man'.   The march solidified support for the Voting Rights Act of 1965.   Prior to 1965, there might have been 3 black mayors nationally.   In 2003, the National Conference of Black Mayors put the total number of black mayors at over 500.   During the 1960s, there were fewer than 10 black U.S. representatives.   Today there are 43.   Since 1965, there have been 3 black state governors.   Nationwide there are over 10K black elected officials.   There is no question that blacks have been successful in the political arena, recently capping off that success with the election of a black president.   It shouldn't be left out that since the 1960s, there has been a major transformation among whites.   Much of black political success could not have been achieved without white votes.   Black leaders stress the importance of political power and getting out the vote, but we might ask how important political power is to the ordinary black person.   As a start toward answering that question, we might examine black life in cities where blacks hold considerable political power.   Detroit is the nation's most dangerous city.   Rounding out Forbes magazine's 2013 list of the 10 most dangerous cities are Oakland, CA; St. Louis, MO; Memphis, TN; Stockton, CA; Birmingham, AL; Baltimore, MD; Cleveland, OH; Atlanta, GA; and Milwaukee, WI.   According to a recent American Community Survey, by the U.S. Census Bureau, the 10 poorest cities with populations of more than 250K are Detroit, MI, with 33% of its residents below the poverty line; Buffalo, NY, 30%; Cincinnati, OH, 28%; Cleveland, OH, 27%; Miami, FL, 27%; St. Louis, MO, 27%; El Paso, TX, 26%; Milwaukee, WI, 26%; Philadelphia, PA, 25%; and Newark, NJ, 24%.   In addition to poverty, there is grossly inferior education and high welfare dependency in these cities.   The most common feature of these cities is that for decades, all of them have had Democratic administrations.   Some cities -- such as Detroit, MI; Buffalo, NY; Newark, NJ; and Philadelphia, PA -- haven't elected a Republican mayor for more than a half-century.   What's more is that in most of these cities, blacks have been mayors, chiefs of police, school superintendents and principals and have dominated city councils...   if one is strategizing on how to improve the lives of ordinary -- and particularly the poorest -- black people, he wants to leave off his high-priority to-do list the election of Democrats and black politicians..."

Mizer, filed an odd document with the court labeled 'Defendants' Advisory'.   In it, DoJ informed judge Hanen that between November 20, when the president announced his new plan, and February 16, when the injunction was issued, DHS 'granted three-year periods of deferred action to approximately 100K' illegal aliens who had already received two-year deferrals under the original 2012 DACA program for 'Childhood Arrivals'.   This 3-year deferral was one of the new initiatives announced by [president Obummer] on November 20.   The problem with this 'Advisory', as Texas and the other plaintiff states pointed out, is that the government told the court and the states 'on several prior occasions that USCIS [U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services] would not consider requests for deferred action; until 2015 February 15.   For example, according to a transcript of a 2014 December 19, telephone conference with the court, Kyle Freeny, an attorney with the Civil Division of the Justice Department, told judge Hanen that DHS was 'directed to begin accepting requests for deferred action...by mid-February but we wouldn't anticipate any decisions on those for some time thereafter'...   They don't explain why they made those false claims or failed to inform the court that the entire time the court action was proceeding -- the entire time they were assuring the judge and the states that no actions were being taken to implement the president's plan -- DHS was granting literally tens of thousands of 3-year deferrals -- approximately 100K in total -- over a two-and-a-half-month period..."

why U of CA at Irvine student council voted to remove the US flag from public area
"The resolution was authored by student Matthew Guevara of the 'School of Social Ecology'...   Two days later a higher ranking student panel, the executive cabinet of ASUCI, vetoed the ban...   [Which was countered, in turn, by a campus petition-drive.]...   1.   Outside of the natural sciences, math, and a few other departments, our universities are essentially seminaries -- teaching what has been the most dynamic religion of the Western world over the past hundred years, leftism.   Every -- frequently incoherent -- idea expressed by the resolution and the petition represents years of left-wing indoctrination.   Respect for the American flag comes naturally; reasons to hold it in contempt have to be learned.   It is not surprising that the author of the resolution is a student at UC Irvine's School of Social Ecology.   Visit its website and you will see leftism in one of its purest forms.   2.   The students and the professors see themselves as citizens of the world.   Leftism rejects nationalism, and the most nationalistic of the industrialized Western democracies is America.   The left regards nationalism -- as symbolized by hanging or waving the American flag -- as primitive and ultimately fascistic.   3.   Many professors and students are bored.   Compared to the past anywhere and compared to the present almost anywhere, life in America is remarkably easy for the vast majority of college students and college professors.   This ease, however, presents them with another problem -- a lack of meaning in life...   That America is in fact the most open, opportunity-giving and tolerant country in world history is irrelevant to these people.   To acknowledge this would be to deprive themselves of the greatest human need after food -- meaning and purpose..."

leftist federal thugs now think they can tell us what speech is allowed and what speech is not: FCC and FEC
Washington DC Times
**Tea Party Digest**
"Boy, do they have a plan.   Their new rules for the Internet requires 313 glorious pages of vague, regulating terminology, allowing the agency to make up the rules as it goes along.   Ever since the FCC started sidling up to the Internet like a dirty old man next to a super-model, conservatives and other free marketeers have been channeling Cassandra, warning the nation that 'net neutrality' was a pretext for the FCC to issue regulations putting them in charge of the Internet as a whole.   That is just what has happened.   Reason magazine reports, 'And yet even though the rules are now available for all to see, it remains somewhat unclear how exactly they will work in practice.'   The New York Times notes the FCC is 'set to decide what is acceptable on a case-by-case basis.   The regulations include a subjective catch-all provision, requiring just and reasonable conduct.   What counts as just and reasonable will, naturally, be up to the whims of the [obviously corrupt] FCC [which has been hindering the development of competition in telecomm for nearly a century].'   The even more shocking devil is in the details of those 313 heretofore unseen pages...   That's right -- what [Obummer's regime] has just done is codify in the United States what the world's despots have been furiously working for at the United Nations -- an Internet controlled by tyrants and central planners..."

"On the tax side, Price would repeal the alternative minimum tax but otherwise does not propose major tax reform, unlike last year's budget from Ryan...   Republicans have been debating what to include under reconciliation, a budget tool that would prevent Democrats in the senate from filibustering covered legislation [under existing rules and customs].   It could make it easier for senate Republicans to pass legislation repealing [ObummerDoesn'tCare] or other policies opposed by Dems/Reds/leftists.   The budget resolution includes instructions for House committees to figure out how to repeal as much of [ObummerDoesn'tCare] as possible under budget reconciliation, a process that would prevent Dems/Reds/leftists in the senate from filibustering a budget reconciliation bill.   The instructions ask 13 House committees to produce bills that would reduce the deficit in their jurisdictions by set amounts, and to search for ways to repeal [ObummerDoesn'tCare]...   By keeping the 2011 budget ceilings, Price would impose a $1.017T ceiling on spending in the fiscal year beginning on Oct. 1...   Price's defense budget is smaller than the $566G Ryan proposed last year..."

Palestinian terrorist beloved by leftists has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for multiple counts of immigration fraud, lsot US citizenship
"Odeh epitomizes evil.   She was an active member of the Marxist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) which the US State Department labeled as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).   On 1969 February 21, Odeh, her sister and at least 3 other co-conspirators placed a bomb in a Jerusalem supermarket that claimed the lives of two Israeli university students in their early twenties.   The bomb was timed to go off for maximum impact on Friday during pre-Sabbath shopping.   A second bomb targeting the first responders -- paramedics and ambulance personnel -- was discovered in the nick of time and neutralized.   Precise and accurate intelligence swiftly led to the apprehension and arrest of Odeh and her criminal gang.   She was tried and convicted of all charges and sentenced to a lengthy prison term.   But Odeh evaded true justice and was released just after serving only 10 years, the result of a prisoner swap.   Following her release, she resided in Lebanon and then moved to Jordan and in 1995, made her way to the United States to join her father.   In 1995 and then again in 2004, Odeh filled out various immigration and naturalization papers in which she repeatedly lied about her past, including former terrorist affiliations, arrests, prison sentences and residences.   Like all common criminals wishing to avoid responsibility for their actions, Odeh claimed ignorance arguing that she had misunderstood the form questions.   Amazingly, Odeh the fraudster and convicted murderer, who according to published reports had as many as 9 aliases, was able to secure employment in Illinois as an [ObummerDoesn'tCare] navigator in 2013..."

what do these religious freedom bills actually say?
"You might wonder when religious freedom became 'controversial'.   Welcome to [Barack Hussein Obummer's] America.   One reason these bills are 'controversial' is that they are often described in the media as permitting religious people who own businesses to refuse service to gay customers...   Except the text of the bill (pdf) in question contains no references to homosexuality, gay people or same-sex marriage.   Neither does the bill currently under discussion in Indiana.   In fact, these bills are substantially modeled on the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, which did not lead to the widespread denial of service to gay customers, was passed by a Dem/Red/leftist-controlled congress and signed into law by Dem president Bill Clinton and was boosted primarily by Chuck Schumer and Ted Kennedy..."

  "As noted in an earlier essay, poor Jewish immigrants in the early 20th century made use of free public libraries in NY and the books they checked out were primarily serious works, while lighter and more popular books were left gathering dust on the library shelves. Among their ancestors in Eastern Europe a century earlier, even the poorest somehow managed to have books in their homes, while the larger population around them were overwhelmingly illiterate. A similar pattern was found among the people in 18th-century Scotland: 'Even a person of relatively modest means had his own collection of books, and what he couldn't afford he could get at the local lending library, which by 1750 virtually every town of any size enjoyed.'" --- Thomas Sowell _Black Rednecks & White Liberals_ pp255-256 (citing Stanley Feldstein & Lawrence Costello 1974 _The Ordeal of Assimilation_ pp122-123; Irving Howe & Kenneth Libo 1979 _How We Lived_ pg204; Arthur Herman 2001 _How the Scots Invented the Modern World_ pg20)

the big, fat "USA citizen worker recruitment first" lie of H-1B
Creators Syndicate
Jewish World Review
Town Hall
National Review
"The foot-soldiers of the open-borders brigade are lying, deluded, ignorant or bought-off.   On Tuesday, the senate Judiciary committee brought top independent academics and informed whistle-blowers to Washington to expose the truth.   Senator Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, hosted Howard University associate professor of public policy Ron Hira, Rutgers University professor Hal Salzman, Infosys whistle-blower Jay Palmer and former computer programmer-turned-lawyer John Miano, who brought much-needed reality checks on the systemic betrayal of American workers to the Beltway table.   Miano's testimony was particularly important because he explained how the little known 'OPT' (Optical Training Program) for foreign students is being used to circumvent H-1B and supply large corporations with cheap foreign labor.   [President Obummer] has expanded this regulatory program by unfettered administrative fiat.   As Miano noted: 'OPT has no labor protections of any kind.   Aliens on OPT do not even have to be paid at all.   While DHS requires aliens to work in an area related to their major area of study, DHS has no ability to ensure that this happens.   Under OPT, over 125K foreign workers a year are simply turned loose in America with no supervision or restrictions.'...   Grassley put it plainly: 'Most people believe that employers are supposed to recruit Americans before they petition for an H-1B worker.   Yet, under the law, most employers are not required to prove to the Department of Labor [DoL, or anyone else] that they [made an honest effort] to find an American to fill the job first.'   He added, 'And, if there is an equally or even better qualified U.S. worker available, the company does not have to offer him or her the job.   Over the years, the program has become a government-assisted way for employers to bring in cheaper foreign labor, and now it appears these foreign workers take over [displace] -- rather than complement -- the U.S. work-force.'   Hira affirmed: 'It's absolutely not true' that employers seeking H-1Bs must put American workers first, either by 'law or regulations'..."

"I-Squared" proposal would worsen hammering of USA technology workers
Watch-Dog
"Critics warn the plan promoted by industry lobbyists would further tighten the screws on U.S. workers.   'We have Americans being replaced by cheap foreign workers and the response is to supply industry with more foreign replacements to put even more Americans out of work.', says John Miano, a tech worker-turned lawyer.   'Giving more foreign labor to industry [executives] is like giving cocaine to an addict.', he said...   'If I-Squared were to become law and foreign STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) graduates could easily earn a green card, the United States would become an even more attractive place for international students...', said Cato Institute researcher Alex Nowrasteh.   By administrative fiat, congressional action, or both, tech companies keep pushing for a larger pool of foreign labor...   Skeptics...testified that the weak economy and government-sponsored foreign labor are side-lining more American workers, especially older ones, as trans-national tech conglomerates pad bottom lines.   Rutgers professor Hal Salzman said expanding immigration programs are undermining STEM education at home while flattening domestic tech wages over the past 15 years.   He testified that U.S. universities already supply more twice as many STEM graduates as the private sector can support, and that disproportionately large enrollments of foreign students 'distort' the labor market.   'It's not competitive hiring, it's competitive firing.', Jay Palmer, a tech worker from Montgomery, AL, said of the marketplace, where he [was required by his employer to train] unskilled foreign workers to replace skilled Americans at lower wages.   'If some lobbyist went through the entire immigration system, looked for every possible place to increase the amount of foreign labor, and put them in one bill without any coherent plan, we would have the I-Squared Act.', Miano said..."

witnesses tell senate Judiciary committee that H-1B visas have been displacing US citizens from STEM jobs
"The InfoSys case is the largest immigration visa fraud fine in U.S. history, at $34M in damages paid.   Yet, testimony from professor Ron Hira, who is an expert in high-skill immigration policy at Howard University, revealed that the applied fine 'did nothing to persuade the company to change its behavior'.   Hira noted that the fine was 'a mere 0.4% of Infosys's $8.2G in annual revenues.   From the perspective of Infosys executives, the fine was a small addition to their cost of doing business.'   He suggested InfoSys should have been blocked from being able to employ an H-1B program.   'The technology industry [executives and their lobbyists have] long offered the Trojan Horse of paying training fees in exchange more H-1Bs.   This is fool's gold for American workers.   It is a lose-lose situation.', Hira pointed out...   Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) referred to a 2014 U.S. Census Bureau report which detailed 'that 74% of those who have a bachelor's degree in science, technology, engineering and math — commonly referred to as STEM -- are not employed in STEM occupations'.   Sessions explained that 'People aren't commodities… We have no obligation to yield to the lust of big businesses.'...   'The Southern California Edison case is just the most flagrant example of [perfectly able and willing US citizen STEM professionals being displaced by H-1B guest-workers] but Disney, and many others, as well as companies like Deloitte -- which is now hiring only H-1B workers to service the State of California unemployment insurance IT system.', the professor explained.   The numbers are sobering.   HP is in the process of laying off 55K workers...   Several weeks ago, Disney in Florida replaced 500 American workers with H-1B immigrants.   Cargill in Minnesota, Harley Davidson in Wisconsin, and Northeast Utilities and Pfizer, both of which are in Connecticut, are also doing the same thing.   '[If] I'm an Edison Employee.   [If] I'm a Harley Davidson employee.   I'm displaced.', Palmer painfully expressed..."

the general reign of law and order is dead
Washington DC Times
"Our Founding Fathers declared their independence from Great Britain in 1776.   11 years later, the U.S. Constitution was adopted and for nearly 230 years since the United States has built a reputation of law and order envied by much of the globe.   The respect for the rule of law and the recognition no one person is above the law have been keys in the longevity and success of the nation.   In 2015, however, it appears the rule of law in the United States may be dead.   Laws are being selectively applied.   Laws are being selectively ignored by those chosen to enforce them.   Perhaps worst of all, laws are being created or changed without any regard for the process prescribed by the Constitution itself..."

DC bureaubums gone wild rival inebriated Spring break revelers
Washington DC Times
"...their spending habits, judgment and concern for others is all about the same.   There is no more obscene display of this political debauchery than what you see in a quick stroll around the U.S. Capitol.   Originally designed by the founders as 'the People's house', the Capitol has become a monument to politicians and their unfettered gluttony and insatiable appetite for undeserved self-importance.   The great, white-domed behemoth has become a fortress of greed, ineptitude and blind power...   All of this is pretty stunning considering the U.S. Capitol was intended to house the branch of government that was supposed to be most directly and immediately answerable to the American voters and taxpayers who pay for every last dime of this whole game of charades.   Today, an American citizen would very likely be shot dead before he could walk up off the street and simply place the palm of his hand against the building he owns, pays to heat and that -- supposedly -- works for him.   Perhaps a voter just might be able to lay a hand on the East Front wall near one of the guard shacks, but throngs of guards would be on him within seconds.   Today, citizens are permitted to sit on some of the lower steps on the East Front, but they are routinely shooed away by armed guards without explanation.   As for the grand West Front, forget about it.   Anyone attempting to mount those great marble stairs for a look down the majestic National Mall and Lincoln Memorial will be met by guards carrying machine guns..."

"Circadian disruption has in turn been linked to a host of health problems, from cancer to diabetes, obesity and depression.   'Everything changed with electricity.   Now we can have bright light in the middle of night.   And that changes our circadian physiology almost immediately.', says Richard Stevens, a cancer epidemiologist at the University of CT.   'What we don't know, and what so many people are interested in, are the effects of having that light chronically.'   Stevens, one of the field's most prominent researchers, reviews the literature on light exposure and human health the latest Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B...   writing in 1996, [NIH] he said the evidence was 'sparse but provocative'...   incandescent bulbs have been mostly replaced by LED and compact fluorescent lights that emit light in potentially more problematic wavelengths...   researchers now know that increased nighttime light exposure tracks with increased rates of [NIH] breast cancer, [Oxford U] obesity and [NIH] depression...   scientists discovered only in the last decade what triggers circadian activity in mammals (pdf): specialized cells in the retina, the light-sensing part of the eye, rather than conveying visual detail from eye to brain, simply signal the presence or absence of light.   Activity in these cells sets off a reaction that calibrates clocks in every cell and tissue in a body.   Now, these cells are especially sensitive to blue wavelengths..."

poll: Equality State supports the TEA Party movement
"A University of Wyoming survey found that nearly 4 in 10 Wyomingites agreed with the tea party movement, just under one-third disagreed, while another third either had not heard of the tea party or had no opinion about it.   'By any measure Wyoming is one of the most conservative states in America and, thus, one might expect that the tea party would fare well in the Equality State.   It does.', says Oliver Walter, emeritus professor of political science at UW.   'In terms of political opinions, the differences between tea party supporters and non-supporters were stark.'   The UW statewide election survey found that in Wyoming, where about 6 in 10 registered voters are Republicans, almost 9 out of 10 of those who expressed sympathy with the tea party were Republicans.   Democrats comprise less than 1% of the tea party supporters, while those registered as independents make up about 10%.   Almost 90% of the tea party sympathizers rated [president Obummer's] job approval as poor, compared to about 24% of those in disagreement.   Nearly 60% of the tea party group perceived that the nation's economy was getting worse, compared to 16% of the non-tea party advocates.   [Primarily concerned with government over-spending and over-taxing, one of the other] policies that sparked the tea party movement was [ObummerDoesn'tCare].   96% of those who agreed with the tea party indicated they disapproved of [ObummerDoesn'tCare], compared to 28% of the tea party's non-sympathizers.   When asked whether they approved or disapproved of Medicaid expansion, more than two-thirds of the tea party supporters disapproved, compared to only 10% of those opposed to the tea party.   Even though Republican registrants compose the vast majority of tea party supporters, not all Republicans support the tea party.   52% are supporters, 18% oppose, and the remainder of Republican registrants either had no opinion or were not acquainted with the tea party philosophy.   More than two-thirds of the tea party supporters were opposed to gay 'marriage'.   Less than 1 in 5 of the non-tea party supporters were opposed..."

quality before quantity: changing the H-1B conversation
"In the senate Judiciary committee hearing on 2015 March 17, entitled 'Immigration Reforms Needed to Protect Skilled American Workers', much of the conversation about the H1-B visa program revolved around balancing legitimate business needs to fill vacant positions and the effect of the widespread importation of foreign labor on the plight of the American worker.   Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), a member of the 'Gang of 8' [8 Gangsters], brought up 3 concerns about the H1-B program as it currently stands.   He began by affirming that the role of congress is to protect the American worker: 'We can't walk out this door if we don't establish that our first responsibility is to hire unemployed Americans.   How in the world can we rationalize anything else?'   If this is going to be taken at face value, it can only be concluded that a system that rewards foreign workers with jobs at the expense of American jobs cannot be what congress intended.   The situation at Southern California Edison shows that, as it stands, the H1-B program not only prevents the hiring of unemployed Americans, but causes their unemployment.   It follows indisputably that the system must change to protect the American worker.   Senator Durbin also noted the conditions of the guest-workers themselves: 'There is a form of servitude here.   They're stuck.   And they can be mistreated, abused, at the expense of the American work-force ...   with virtually no recourse.'   So, in addition to American workers, the current H1-B program harms guest-workers.   Senator Durbin added: 'What are we going to pay these folks? Is this going to be such a low wage that it disadvantages American workers? That to me is a key to it.'   There is no doubt that the senator is right about the issue: Pay is clearly an important aspect to the H1-B debate and basic business sense and economics indicate that low, sub-market wages can only crowd out more expensive American workers.   At the same hearing, John Miano, a fellow with the Center for Immigration Studies, testified that 56% of H1-B applications are at the lowest skill level, eligible to be paid only in the 17th percentile of the average rate (50th percentile is the average prevailing wage in an industry).   More specifically, the Southern California Edison example shows how the H1-B program can be used to reduce business expenses.   Alarmingly, what Southern California Edison is doing is not only rampant in the H1-B market, but also is probably legal under the current statutes...   If foreign workers really are 'the best and the brightest' -- greater than any available American, then American companies not only should be willing to pay the going rate, but be willing to pay a premium."

Before It's News
"The Eric Schmidt pleading for more foreign workers is the same Eric Schmidt who boasts of turning away thousands upon thousands of job seekers who apply for a few prized positions at Google.   For example, at an appearance in Cleveland last October to promote his book, How Google Works, Schmidt explained that his company receives at least 1K applications for every job opening.   'The good news is that we have computers [applicant management systems] to do the initial vetting.', Schmidt explained, according to an account in the Cleveland Plain Dealer...   Some companies are actually lobbying for more H-1Bs and laying off American staff at the same time.   For example, last year MSFT announced the layoff of 18K people at the very moment it was pushing Congress for more guest worker visas."

case of Upani Consultants of Chester county highlights H-1B guest-work visa scams
"At first blush, Upani Consultants of Chester county appeared to be a group of ambitious workers, mostly from India, who came to the United States on specialty visas to be employed as quality-assurance analysts and software engineers in information technology.   But in fact, according to the guilty plea by Sudhakar Majety in federal court in Philadelphia late last year, the company he created a decade ago in Phoenixville ultimately exploited the H-1B 'specialty occupation' visa program by using shell companies and sham contracts to give the impression that Upani needed staff.   When the workers arrived here, according to the indictment, they learned that Upani had no positions and were forced to search for jobs elsewhere.   Majety, 46, of Spring City, Chester County, typically charged each worker about $4K for the visa and kept 20% of any money the worker earned.   Workers who could not find employment had to pay him extra to keep their visas active... The law [mentions] specialized training [but doesn not actually require it, nor a high skill level to get an H-1b, it mentions] bachelor's degree [or equivalent, but, according to USCIS documents, thousands have been granted to people who did not have the equivalent of a US bachelor's degree] in the specialty for which they are hired. They must be paid the ['prevailing wage', a legal term of art which is usually 12% below the local market compensation for the job, education, etc... or lower]. They [often] displace [able and willing] American workers, and [the initial term is for up to 3 years, which can readily be renewed for another term of up to 3 years, and then extended on a year-by-year basis after that]. [The law also mentions not harming US workers -- meaning US citizens and green card holders -- but, despite the extremely rare law-suit, DoL and USCIS generally disregard it.] The joint investigation by the DoL, DoS, and DHS [of which USCIS is a part] found that Majety, a naturalized U.S. citizen originally from India, obtained 'between 25 and 99' fraudulent H-1B visas [after examining their records and the investigation they were still, apparently, not certain] and enriched himself by 'hundreds of thousands of dollars'..."
153,794 new/initial H-1B visas were actually issued through consular offices in Fiscal Year 2013, and 162,239 new/initial H-1B visas were issued in FY2014 according to the State Department

"Cheating in exams is fairly common in the Indian state of Bihar, but new images have emerged which show just how large-scale and blatant the practice is.   Many students smuggled in text-books and notes into the examination centres despite tight security -- and parents and friends were photographed scaling the walls of test centres to pass on answers to students during the current secondary school examinations...   Officials say more than 1.4M students are taking the tests.   Most of the incidents of cheating this year have been reported from Saharsa, Chhapra, Vaishali and Hajipur districts.   Local newspapers have been full of photos of parents and relatives trying to help their children cheat even at considerable risk to their own lives...   authorities seized sheets containing answers which filled up 9 sacks...   at least 400 students who have been caught cheating have been expelled..."

"The legislation would reauthorize the FCC at its current funding level of $339.8M for the next four fiscal years.   It would also authorize appropriations for spectrum auctions at the current level through 2022 and create an independent inspector general at the FCC who could not be fired by the chairman.   Walden's bill does not [grant] a request made by FCC managing-director Jon Wilkins at a hearing before the committee earlier this month to increase the agency's budget to $505M...   Even adjusted for the rate of inflation, [the requested amount] far surpasses the amount the FCC needed to conduct its work when it was arguably its busiest: implementing the Telecommunications Act of 1996."

bill to combat human trafficking exempts those who smuggle illegal alien relatives, and the indigent
"The bipartisan human-trafficking bill being blocked by senate Dems/Reds/leftists contains a loophole that would exempt some enablers of illegal immigration from paying a fine.   The 'Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015', is designed to increase penalties on human traffickers, but exempts families who help smuggle relatives into the United States...   a parent who aids and abets a drug cartel to help smuggle his or her illegal-immigrant child across America's southern border -- something that happened over and over again during last Summer's border crisis -- will not be subject to the bill's $5K penalty.   This penalty would be directed toward a fund to benefit the victims of human trafficking, so it would appear that the exemption denies the fund a large potential source of revenue -- in addition to letting some enablers of illegal immigration and human trafficking off scot-free..."

"intellectual" has come to mean "divorced from wisdom"
Jewish World Review
"...One wonders what he thinks about the 'pedigree' of the entire common law system, of which the American legal system has been a part for nearly 400 years.   (Yes, I am counting the early colonies.)   Judicial decisions in the civil law systems of continental Europe largely bind only the parties to the litigation.   But judicial decisions in common law countries -- those that inherited their legal traditions from Great Britain -- have the effect of 'stare decisis', or precedent.   In other words, judicial decisions bind all lower courts within the same jurisdiction.   This is certainly true of the U.S. Supreme Court, whose decisions bind all individuals and enterprises, courts and other branches of government (both state and federal) unless negated by an act of Congress or [later] over-turned by the Supreme Court itself.   This is basic first-year law school material.   It is curious that a faculty member at one of the country's most esteemed law schools either doesn't understand this principle or thinks it can be summarily dispensed with..."

Obummer takes his rage onto the world stage
Jewish World Review
World Net Daily
"...[Obummer] was outraged when Netanyahu chose to speak to congress about the Iranian nuclear threat, which Obama continues to ignore -- or, arguably, enable.   That's why he refused to meet with Netanyahu when he was in Washington for that speech -- again, putting his petty feelings above our national interests.   And that's also why he has yet to pick up the telephone to call Netanyahu to congratulate him for his electoral victory this week.   Incidentally, I believe that's also why he sent the Churchill bust back to the Brits.   It's about him and his feelings, our relationship with ally Britain be damned.   Be fair.   No other president has behaved like this.   So don't defend it...   Is there any question whose side [Obummer] is on anymore? Has he ever rebuked the Palestinians or any enemies of Israel for wishing or acting [for] its destruction?"

at National Crime Museum: 2012-08-15 domestic terror attack on Family Research Council
"Corkins admitted to authorities that he targeted the Family Research Council because it was cited on the 'Hate Map' of the Southern Poverty Law Center web-site...   The gunman who planned to attack staff at the Family Research Council also carried a bag of Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, which he later said were to smash in the faces of his victims.   Floyd Lee Corkins opposed the owner of the food franchise reportedly for his stance in support of traditional marriage...   There's also a photo in the exhibit of Leo Johnson, the building operations manager who was acting as a security guard on the day of the attack.   Although he was shot in the arm, Johnson was able to subdue Corkins until police and the FBI arrived on the scene.   'This museum exhibit is a testament to Leo Johnson's heroism, the dedication of the law enforcement officers working the case and, most importantly, the protective hand of the Lord.', lieutenant-general (retired) Jerry Boykin, the FRC executive vice president, told CNSNews.com.   'The exhibit stands as a reminder that in a civil society we must never allow free and open debate to be shut down through acts of terrorism...   Floyd Corkins, through the inspiration of the Southern Poverty Law Center [SPLC], intended to use mass murder as a means to silence those who uphold marriage as the union of a man and a woman.', Boykin said...   Other items in the domestic terrorism exhibit include rubble from the World Trade Center terror attack on 2001 Sept. 11; a running bib and back-pack from the Boston Marathon terror attack; a rifle confiscated from the Virginia Jihad Network in 2003; letters from the Unabomber; a rope from a lynching; and the book written by the mother of Matthew Sheppard, a homosexual man who was beaten and left to die by two men who were convicted of his murder..."

"the issue is her belief that [president Barack Hussein Obummer's] executive amnesty is lawful.   This isn't a mere matter of policy or personal preference.   It implicates her view of the constitutional order that she will be sworn to uphold.   Whether she thinks the executive branch can in effect write laws on its own is a threshold question.   Her answer in the affirmative should be disqualifying, no matter how impressive her career has otherwise been, or how historic her confirmation would be.   The senate shouldn't confirm any attorney-general nominee, from whatever party, of whatever race, ethnicity or gender identification, who believes the president can rewrite the nation's laws at will...   If the self-styled world's greatest deliberative body can't enforce this basic standard, and protect its most elementary constitutional prerogative, who will?..."

violent Muslims are bull-dozing the past
"The recent bull-dozing by the [ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate] of the ancient cities of Nimrud, Hatra, and Korsabad, three of the world's greatest archaeological and cultural sites, is just this group latest round of assaults across the large area under its control.   Since 2014 January, the flamboyantly barbaric ISIS has blown up Shi'i mosques, bulldozed churches, pulverized shrines, and plundered museums...   Some attacks target the works of other, rival religions, such as Orthodox churches in northern Cyprus (since 1974), the Bamiyan Buddhas in Afghanistan (in 2001), the Ghriba synagogue in Tunisia (2002), an historic Hindu temple in Malaysia (2006), and the Assyrian antiquities ('idols') in Mosul (2015).   On a personal level, a Saudi national smashed historic statues at the Senso-Ji Buddhist temple in Tokyo in 2014.   Nor is this danger over: Islamic leaders have bruited plans to destroy Persepolis in Iran, St. Catherine's monastery in the Sinai, and the Great Pyramids of Egypt.   In some cases, conquerors turn non-Islamic holy places into Islamic ones, thereby asserting the supremacy of Islam.   This can be done by converting them into Islamic sanctities, such as the Kaaba in Mecca, the Cathedral of St. John in Damascus, and the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople; or building on top of them, such as Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, India..."

4th amendment violated: US Border Patrol detained and arrested USA citizen over 50 miles inside USA, had no search warrant (with dashcam video)
Statutes have been proposed to declare the "border" not as a narrow line (30 feet-300 feet), with 2 or 3 fences and vehicle barriers (with ports, of course), but as a region extending as far as 150 miles inside the USA, to allow warrantless searches and seizures.   Interestingly enough, at the same time, the Border Patrol have been treating the border as though it were well within the boundaries of the USA, treating attempting invaders as though they were well within the interior of the USA rather than repelling them from entry.

silenced US workers who lost jobs to H-1B visa abuse (quietly) speak out
"'The current system to bring in high-skill guest workers ... has become primarily a process for supplying lower-cost labor to the IT industry.', 2 experts who testified at the hearing, Howard University's Ron Hira and Rutgers' Hal Salzman, wrote recently.   'Although a small number of workers and students are brought in as the best and brightest, most [so-called] high-skill guest-workers are here to fill ordinary tech jobs at lower wages.'...   'Simply put, the H-1B program has become a cheap labor program.', Hira, author of the book _OutSourcing America_, testified.   'To add insult to injury, Southern California Edison forced its American workers to train their H-1B replacements as a condition of receiving their severance packages.'...   But one voice was missing from the hearing, and that was the voice of laid-off workers.   That was no accident.   In addition to losing their jobs and being forced to train their foreign replacements, many fired workers are required to sign non-disparagement agreements as a condition of their severance.   They are workers with families and bills to pay, and they are told that if they do not agree to remain silent, they will be terminated with cause, meaning they will receive no severance pay or other benefits and will face an even tougher search for a new job and a continued career.   So they remain silent.   A long-time feature of the Capitol Hill hearing into this or that unfair practice is to hear from the victims of this or that unfair practice.   The IT industry has worked to make sure that does not happen in the case of H-1B visa abuse.   Still, the Judiciary committee managed to receive testimonials from 4 laid-off workers, 3 from Southern California Edison and one from another company.   So to flesh out the H-1B story with the perspective of those who are actually paying the price when H-1B visas are used to displace American workers, here are their anonymous testimonials:
 
Worker One: 'My former company, a large utility company, replaced 220 American IT workers with H-1Bs…we would have to train them in order to receive our severance packages.   This was one of the most humiliating situations that I have ever been in as an IT professional.   The whole IT department was going through the same fate as myself.   Those were the longest and hardest five months of my life.   Not only did I lose a work family, but I lost my job and my self-esteem.   We had constant e-mails sent by HR that we could not talk about this situation to anyone or make posts to social media.   If we did, we would be fired immediately and not get our severance.   We had jobs and there was no shortage of skilled labor that would make it necessary to bring in H-1Bs.   We were let go and replaced by foreign workers who certainly weren't skilled to take our positions.'
 
Worker Two: 'I am an IT professional and worked for Southern California Edison for over 2 decades.   I was a loyal employee and always received outstanding reviews.   A foreign worker with a H-1B visa recently replaced me.   I am the sole provider of my children.   Due to a disability, finding employment at the same wage and with a work modification will be very difficult...   It is an ominous possibility that in 5 years or less I may have no assets, suffer from severe pain and will need to go on full disability with a catastrophic decrease in income.   The loss of my job may rob me of a secure retirement.   My lay-off has made my children fearful of their future and the security of their home.   If I stay in the IT field I run a high risk of again being replaced by a foreign worker.   It's a farce teaching our kids STEM when the government is permitting U.S. companies to abuse the H-1B visa program, which allows foreigners to take these future jobs from them.   I voted for [president Obummer] and was appalled that he implemented a rule change, which allows work permits to H-1B spouses.   My future votes will only go to candidates that support reforms to the H-1B visa program that preserve the American worker.'
 
Worker Three: 'I started working at Southern California Edison several decades ago.   SCE was a company that many people started with at a young age, could work there through their life-times, and retire with a good pension and benefits.   That was my plan.   And I would have been able to do exactly that -- until an executive announced a couple years ago that my department was going to be out-sourced.   We were forced to train the less qualified foreign workers hired to take our jobs.   Over 400 hard-working, intelligent people have lost their jobs due to the H-1B visa program [at this one firm].   Many of us, and countless more like us, face enormous hurdles to find new jobs -- why would companies want to hire us when they can hire cheaper workers on the H-1B visa to do our jobs for us?'
 
Worker Four: 'As longtime employees we loved the work we were doing and the people we were working with.   We did a great job.   Our work mattered.   The work we performed was instrumental in building a world-class business unit.   Through no fault of my own my job was just given to someone else with a lot less experience, knowledge and skills, lowering my standard of living and raising theirs so Edison could save a few dollars and reward stock-holders with a few more pennies on their dividends.   I and most of my co-workers are completely disgusted that Edison can fire us and replace us with foreign workers, abusing the H-1B program.   We cannot understand how the CPUC (California Public Utilities Commission), governor and congress, president and media can all ignore this abuse and just pretend it doesn't matter.   It's as if we no longer matter or have value as human beings or American citizens.'
 
It's certainly true that other workers in other industries have lost jobs because companies wanted to cut costs.   Highly-paid middle-aged workers have been replaced by younger employees working for less.   That can be an unhappy fact of life in today's economy.   But in the case of H-1Bs, the federal government is expressly giving a special permit to foreign workers -- actually, to large out-sourcing firms [cross-border bodyshops] that use H-1Bs to bring those workers to the U.S.A. -- in order to displace American workers.   And now many lawmakers in both parties -- their task made simpler by the enforced silence of fired and angry workers -- want even more H-1Bs.   Is that something the government should do?"

senate hearing: no consensus to protect American workers from displacement
"I testified last week before the senate Judiciary committee on 'Reforms Needed to Protect Skilled American Workers'.   It was a great honor to be invited.   However, participating in an event like this highlights the growing isolation between Washington and the rest of America.   At one time there was a consensus that American citizens should come first under our immigration laws.   The Supreme Court has repeatedly held that preserving jobs for American workers is a primary purpose of our immigration laws; see, for instance Reno v. Flores, 507 U.S. 292, 334 (1993).   No such consensus exists in today's Washington.   The impetus for the hearing was the recent replacement of Americans by H-1B workers at Southern California Edison, Northeast Utilities, Cargill, and Walt Disney World.   You would think that members of congress, upon learning that Americans workers are being replaced by foreign workers, would response in unison, 'This is outrageous.   That needs to stop now!'   I sensed such outrage from senators Durbin, Grassley, Sessions, and Vitter—but none of the rest present.   In fact, the impression I came away with is that most of the senators did not think it is even a problem when Americans are being replaced by foreign workers.   (Senators, that was just my impression.   I know that some people put on a restrained face hiding rage behind that.   If I left out any senator at the hearing who was outraged, I will be happy to amend this post and link to any statement you have made that Congress should act immediately to stop the replacement of Americans by foreign workers.)   But there were affirmative statements that reinforced my impression of a lack of concern.   One of these was related to the displacement of Americans by H-1B workers.   I have previously described how Congress has made it perfectly legal to replace Americans with H-1B workers in nearly all cases.   If you piece together the jumble of statutes governing the replacement of Americans by H-1B workers, you find that is perfectly legal to replace an American with an H-1B worker unless all of these conditions converge: The H-1B worker is paid less than $65K; AND The H-1B worker does not have a master's degree; AND The employer has more than 15% of its workers on H-1B visas (only counting those workers that fit #1 and #2 above); AND The replacement takes place within 90 days of making the H-1B visa petition; This has been designed to allow employers to replace Americans with cheap H-1B workers.   In response to the problem of Americans being replaced by H-1B workers, senator Hatch suggested changing the law so that the $60K figure above becomes $95K.   If I could sit down one-on-one with Senator Hatch, my first question would be, 'Why, senator, is it so hard for you to simply make it illegal to replace Americans with H-1B workers?'   Senator Hatch raised a couple of issues we could discuss.   He pointed out that the I-Squared Act includes money for training.   'But senator, Americans don't need training [so much].   They need jobs.   It is the H-1B workers that need and receive the training.'   [Besides, the training of new-hires and retained US citizen employees; and the relocation of new-hires and retained US citizen employees; and the cost of security clearances as neede for US citizen employees should be covered by the employer.]   Senator Hatch also wondered why people who opposed S744 [Reprehensible Immigration Law Perversion] now call for reform of H-1B.   'Senator, S744 had no H-1B reform.   All it did was increase the number of visas and made the rules even more complicated.   The Department of Labor Inspector General sends Congress a report twice a year calling for reform and the folks who wrote S744 simply ignored them.'   One-on-one, I could show the senator how S744 simply reworded H-1B provisions with no change in operation.   Unfortunately, as this statement from Hatch's office makes clear, senator Hatch [and senator Rubio and senator Reid and senator Ayotte and senator Klobuchar and representative Pelosi and representative Lofgren...], simply parrots what he is fed by industry lobbyists without applying any critical thought...   Americans [are] being replaced by cheap foreign workers at Southern California Edison, Walt Disney World, and Northeast Utilities, [which should embarrass] the United States senate as a whole...   Senators, when you hang out with liars, like those listed above; when you put their statements in the record; and when you repeat their statements without question you look like an ass too.   You are measured by the company you keep."

Ted Cruz's down-side: once proposed to give out 5 times as many H-1B visas
"Cruz, who announced his presidential bid this morning, once proposed an immediate increase in the base H-1B cap from 65K to 325K.   Cruz offered the H-1B increase as an amendment in 2013 to the Senate's [reprehensible immigration law perversion] bill [S744]...   Cruz's H-1B amendment, however, proposed increasing H-1B fees from $1,500 to $2,500 for those with 25 employees or more.   The money would be used to create block grants to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education...   Cruz is part of large group of politicians who will not acknowledge the H-1B's visas use in off-shore out-sourcing or the reality of U.S. workers who are forced to train their visa-holding replacements..."

Netanyahu pollster: Obummer role in campaign against Netanyahu is larger than the media have reported
Thomas Lifson: American Thinker
"He noted an effort to oust Netanyahu was guided by [Obummer] political operative Jeremy Bird and that V15, or Victory 15, ads hurt Netanyahu in the polls.   McLaughlin said the Israeli leader rebounded after delivering a speech to Congress early this month, prompting more critical ads.   V15 was viewed as part of a broader campaign to oust Netanyahu.   The group was linked to Washington-based non-profit OneVoice Movement, which reportedly received $350K in State Department grants.   Money to OneVoice stopped flowing in November, officials said, before the Israeli elections...   McLaughlin also cited an effort 'to organize the Arabs [in Israel] into one party and teach them about voter turn-out'.   'The State Department people in the end of January, early February, expedited visas for [Israeli] Arab leaders to come to the United States to learn how to vote.', McLaughlin said.   'There were people in the United States that were organizing them to vote in one party so they would help the left-of-center candidate, Herzog, that the [Obummer regime] favored.', he added...   Zeldin, who along with senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has questioned the [Obummer regime] over OneVoice's funding and nonprofit status."

"First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and nationalizes the Internet.   He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican enemies.   He abandons our allies, appeases tyrants, coddles adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast.   Now he's coming for Israel..."

"Richard, the last Plantagenet king, was killed in battle against Henry Tudor in 1485 and buried hastily without a coffin in a long-demolished monastery...   DNA tests, bone analysis and other scientific scrutiny established that the skeleton belonged to the king...   On Sunday, a hearse carrying the monarch's remains, sealed inside an oak coffin, processed through Leicestershire's countryside to Bosworth, the battlefield where the monarch fell...   Michael Ibsen, a descendant of the monarch who built the coffin that carried Richard's remains, was among academics and others who placed white roses on the casket during a short ceremony earlier Sunday.   The coffin will lie in Leicester Cathedral, where it will be lowered into a tomb on Thursday."

the astonishing contrast between US youth and Israeli youth
"HaAretz summed it up this way: Israel's youth voted in overwhelming numbers for Netanyahu because of 'security, security, security -- and distrust of Arabs [that is, Muslims], the left and media'.   In the United States of America, this very group delivered a fraud, a liar and America-hater into the Oval Office, not once but twice.   Despite joblessness, nationalized mandatory health care that they must pay for, the explosion of jihad, Benghazi, American youth (the poo generation) without thought or consideration elected the most anti-American and dangerous president in American history.   American youth have been systematically misled and misinformed about the grave threats we face.   The public school system has long since moved away from teaching the 3 Rs.   Instead, it's inculcation and dogma.   Critical thinking, once fundamental to American education, is discouraged, punished even.   Junk science, environmentalism and other such nonsense have replaced the essentials.   Israel's youth have no such illusions.   They live with the threat of annihilation..."

ObummerDoesn'tCare intentionally closing rural hospitals
"the former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.   'I think that's what the [ObummerDoesn'tCare] was really designed to bring about.', said Dr. Lee Hieb...   48 rural hospitals have closed since 2010 and 283 others are in danger of closing, according to the Washington Post.   Most of those closures were in the South, with 10 of them in Texas alone...   'This is going to be like the Reichstag fire.', Hieb proclaimed.   'It's going to be an excuse to say, Look, the free market failed, and now we can go in and institute universal health care [totally controlled by the federal government, and thus totally controlling both doctors and patients], because you see, these people in these rural areas need health-care, and you're not getting it to them.'...   Hieb explains that 'whereas private insurance might pay the surgeon $4,500 for a spinal surgery (my specialty), Medicare paid less than $1,200'.   Once rural hospitals close, it creates a snowball effect, according to Hieb.   Doctors will move to areas where hospitals are still viable -- areas with a high ratio of private insurance to government insurance.   The few doctors who remain in rural areas will see their workloads increase, leading to stress..."

Ben Gurion U & U of California discovered new mechanism in Lou Gehrig's disease
"amyotrophic lateral sclerosis...   The cause of ALS is not known in about 90% of cases, but the remaining cases are genetically inherited...   About a fifth of the genetic cases are due to mutations in the superoxide dismutase (SOD1) gene.   Interdisciplinary research projects have shown that mutations in this gene (more than 165 different mutants are now known) provoke selective killing of motor neurons by their suffering from some form of toxicity, but the basis for this selective toxicity has not been identified...   The researchers report the identification of a factor that is able to inhibit accumulation of misfolded SOD1.   They purified it and identified it to be the well-known multi-functional protein macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF).   Purified MIF is shown to directly inhibit mutant SOD1 misfolding and binding to intra-cellular organelles.   Elevated expression of MIF is shown to suppress accumulation of misfolded SOD1 in neuronal cells and extends survival of mutant SOD1 expressing motor neurons.   These efforts identify low 'chaperone activity' of MIF in motor neurons as a likely component of selective vulnerability to mutant SOD1 misfolding, and propose enhancement of intra-cellular MIF chaperone activity as an attractive therapeutic strategy..."

new wave of Islamic immigration into USA planned by Obummer regime
Leo Hohmann: World Net Daily (with graph)
"The number of students graduating with STEM degrees already far exceeds the number of STEM jobs available but powerful interests in the business community are pushing congress to allow more foreign skilled workers into the country.   Congress is considering new immigration laws that would flood the U.S.A. with 'guest-workers' from the Middle East and Asia, a plan some are calling an open invitation for jihadists to walk right through America's front door.   Critics say law-makers -- including top [RINO losers] -- are playing with fire and could jeopardize national security with the proposals to double or even triple the number of H-1B work visas... 'In 2012, there were more than twice as many people with STEM degrees (immigrant and native) as there were STEM jobs -- 5.3M STEM jobs vs. 12.1M with STEM degrees.', Camarotta said. 'Only one-third of natives who have a STEM degree and hold a job do so in a STEM occupation.'... In the globalist dream world, [corporate executives] would shift workers from Bangkok to Birmingham or from Islamabad to Atlanta [more readily than] they would from New York to Chicago in a borderless, seamless system geared toward labor mobility, multi-culturalism, and maximum hedging against wage inflation [i.e. suppressing increases in compensation]. They overlook the fact that immigration is already at historic highs, with a record 41.3 million immigrants now living in the U.S. (both legal and illegal), making up 13.1 percent of all U.S. residents, the highest percentage in 93 years, according to the CIS study. As recently as 1980 that percentage was 6.2 percent. This historic influx has kept a lid on wages for the average American worker, including tech workers. Immigrants are also far less likely to come from Europe now than 40 years ago and more likely to come from Asia and the Middle East, the study found... real wages for U.S. STEM workers, with the exception of oil-field engineers, have remained stagnant for more than a decade..."

Marco Rubio joins another gang to undermine middle-class jobs
"like many gang members, he has been unable to make a clean break and has now joined another gang -- the bipartisan 'Gang of 6'.   This bipartisan gang consists of senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Chris Coons (D-DE), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT).   Their bill, the Immigration Innovation ('I-Squared') Act of 2015, would increase the number of H-1B visas, grant work permits to dependent spouses of H-1B holders, increase the number of green cards for [cheap, young, pliant, low-skilled foreign STEM guest-workers with questionable ethics], and make it easier for H-1B holders to move from employer to employer.   According to the gang's press release, the bipartisan legislation is the result of constant outreach with 'leaders' in the business and high-tech industries, which means that it is definitely not an American jobs or middle-class friendly bill.   In fact, it is designed to do for American jobs in the high-tech sector what open borders did to lower-paying, American jobs -- eliminate most of them and drive wages down for any remaining jobs.   As Ronald Reagan would say if he were debating Rubio, 'There you go again.', because Rubio is once again selling his gang's bill for what it ain't.   He throws around the terms 'border control' and 'internal enforcement' when talking about it despite the fact that neither of these are in the bill [nor are they] a prerequisite for passage of the bill.   He also implies that the bill will create good-paying jobs for Americans in spite of the fact that the country has more than twice as many workers with science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) degrees than there are STEM jobs..."

exposing the unseen hands trying to wreck the GOP
"The reporting done by Breitbart's Matthew Boyle on the decidedly anti-conservative views of media consultant Liz Mair, late of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker's 'Our American Revival', did much more than expose the fact that one obscure political consultant supports same-sex 'marriage' and amnesty for illegal aliens -- it exposed one of the unseen hands splitting the Republican Party and destroying it as the political home of limited government constitutional conservatives.   This unseen hand is not Ms. Mair, although she is a small part of it, it is a loose knit group of Washington political consultants, lobbyists, allegedly conservative media operatives and Capitol Hill staff who hold and promote views, such as support for same-sex 'marriage', open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens that are not just out of sync with the majority of grass-roots Republican voters, but directly opposed to the foundational principles of the Republican Party as expressed in its platform.   After Boyle began asking and reporting about Mair's views, about which she was not bashful, until it began to sink in that voters outside the Washington Beltway do not think highly of the political acumen or commitment to conservative principles of those who hold those views, allegedly conservative DC media types, consultants and staffers came out of the woodwork to defend Mair, and attack Matt Boyle on a strangely personal level...   This is the sales pitch the consultant class makes every cycle to Republican candidates who then surround themselves with inside-the-Beltway mercenaries who despise conservatives, run content-free campaigns and lose the election...   Why, exactly, would conservatives want 'a kid from Michigan with his own ideas', like [Derek Hunter], or Ms. Mair whose loyalties and regular paycheck lie with the Fortune 500, to have access to a rising presidential candidate and to be on the inside to make the argument that same-sex 'marriage', open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens are good government policy?...   Grass-roots conservatives trusted Ronald Reagan in some measure because Reagan surrounded himself with conservative leaders and the self-made California entrepreneurs who formed his old kitchen cabinet; men like Nevada senator Paul Laxalt, Lyn Nofziger, Dick Allen, Ed Meese, Marty Anderson, Jeff Bell, Tom Ellis, [David Stockman, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin] and judge William Clark were conservatives who were supporting Reagan because they believed in his ideas -- they weren't rented strangers looking for a pay-check whose loyalties could be had by the highest bidder.   Conservatives who wonder at the out-sized influence the urban elite seem to wield on Capitol Hill have only to look to Mr. Hunter's article to understand that it starts with who their candidates and elected officials hire for every position from driver, to media consultant, to chief of staff because those are the people who are going to spend the most time with the candidate and who are going to be there in the wee hours when last minute amendments are drafted or on the long drive back from an event making the argument for or against conservative policy.   What Matthew Boyle's article exposed, and what Mr. Hunter's counterargument confirmed, is exactly the point Mr. Viguerie has pounded on for many years...   who is in proximity to candidates and elected officials matters because those are the people who have access, and access equals influence.   Matt Boyle's reporting on the Walker campaign and Liz Mair was a great service to the conservative movement, not because it exposed the views of one obscure political consultant, but because it flushed out those like Mr. Hunter, who unwittingly confirmed exactly how the unseen hand of the anti-conservative parasites of the Washington consulting class are wrecking the Republican Party."

more protections for illegal aliens, prosecutions of their employers
"The National Labor Relations Board, the federal agency that enforces labor laws, has started an aggressive new push to pursue cases against employers of illegal aliens.   Not only will the board's investigators ignore the immigration status of the workers in the complaint, but it also will help those workers obtain visas so they can testify against the employer.   That's according to a recent internal 'updated procedures' memorandum by agency general counsel Richard Griffin."

the many costs of Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal amnesty of illegal aliens and "work permits" for spouses of H-1B guest-workers
"...Nearly a third of all 'English learners' in U.S. public schools are third-generation Americans who still are not speaking English at home, and the Hispanic illegitimacy rate is 53%.   The cheap labor welcomed by employers is not only a huge impediment for American job-seekers, it's also a big expense to [tax-victims] who are hit with new costs of schools, hospitals and prisons.   The agency charged with approving the applications for [Obummer's] amnesty is getting ready for more than 800K applications in the first couple of months.   This agency is facing the prospect of trying to process at least 4M pieces of mail connected with the new amnesty, and all applications are supposed to be opened in the presence of 2 workers, one with a secret security clearance.   Obviously, we need a new bureaucracy for this awesome task, and USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) has already started to hire several hundred new employees and train them.   Luke Bellocchi, a former deputy ombudsman for USCIS, told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in February, 'It's going to be hard to tell how much fraud there is.'   Kenneth Palinkas, president of the National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council, said, 'How you could have proper adjudications this way is beyond my scope of reason.   They want to clerical-ize the job, and they're really not concerned about whether the documents entered are fraudulent or not.   They just want to push the papers along.'..."

"In 2008, many conservatives opposed the bank bail-out.   Why send $700G of hard-working Americans' [tax-victim] dollars to banks that had failed?   Some of us argued it was unfair.   Some of us argued it was unnecessary.   But among the strongest arguments we made was the moral-hazard argument.   Bailing out reckless behavior today will only encourage reckless behavior in the future..."

"Now that conservative champion senator Ted Cruz is officially running for president, radio host Rush Limbaugh says the most interesting thing in the 2016 race right now is what will the rest of the Republican field do in response...   'Some conservative blog or some conservative media type somewhere is gonna find one thing that conservative Candidate X falls short on and will say disqualifies him.   This is why the Republican Party ends up with the McCains and the Romneys.', he added.   'You have to go into this understanding there is not a perfect candidate.   There is not a candidate that is gonna be right on everything...'   Limbaugh said he is excited about what appears to be a diverse group of Republicans running for the Oval Office, providing a stark contrast to the 'vanilla on the Democrat side.   All you've got is Chairman Mao Junior.', he said, referring to names such as Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.   'You don't have any diversity on the left whatsoever.   You've got far left, extreme left, and nothing else...   the Democrat base is so genuinely insane', that presidential hopefuls, 'have to deliver hate-filled extreme radical leftism in order to have the barest chance at winning the Democrat nomination, which does not bode well for diversity on the Democrat side.'..."

congress must stop the Obummer "thought police"
"I am the president of the Wetumpka TEA Party in Alabama, one of hundreds of conservative groups that were targeted by the IRS.   Throughout [president Obummer's] tenure in office, officials at the IRS unfairly delayed or even withheld tax exempt status to conservative organizations based solely on the organizations' political views.   Not only that, they tried to intimidate those conservatives by demanding long lists of confidential information they were not legally entitled to and even leaked some of that information publicly.   It was a blatant effort to silence opposition to the current [regime's] policies.   To this day, no one at the IRS has been held accountable.   If anything, the perpetrators were given a pat on the back along with lavish retirements and lucrative bonuses.   I have stated in interviews many times that when unaddressed abuses go unpunished they only get worse.   Well that's exactly what is happening.   Not only has the IRS not amended their ways, but we have witnessed [president Obummer] get away with making his own laws while blatantly ignoring others.   Why in the world congress is allowing it to continue is beyond me!..."

Ted Cruz is the first top-tier non-leftist candidate since Ronald Reagan
"First, is his ability to unite all three elements of the old Reagan coalition; national defense conservatives, economic conservatives and social conservatives with the new fourth leg of the 21st century’s winning conservative coalition -- the constitutional conservatives of the Tea Party movement.   Others, such as Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal and Rand Paul may have some appeal to elements of that coalition, but no one unites it the way Ted Cruz does.   Second, is Ted Cruz's understanding of and almost spiritual bond with America's country class -- the voters outside the Beltway who have looked with alarm at [Obummer's] fundamental transformation of America and seen not a spending bill to be negotiated or a deal to be cut, as the Republican establishment does, but an existential threat to American exceptionalism and the future of constitutional government that must be resisted at every turn.   Finally and perhaps most importantly, are Ted Cruz's zest for the battle of ideas between conservatives and [regressives/Reds/leftists] in both political parties and his intellectual gifts for fighting it.."

H-1B incompetence
"On my last project before law school, we had an H-1B data-base administrator, Uma.   Uma did not now the first thing about databases and struggled to learn through books on the job.   Sadly, she had no real computer talent and would never become very good in the field.   So why was Uma on the project? The company put in place a policy of only allowing contract workers from H-1B bodyshops to save them about $10 an hour.   The project manager was in the position of either taking Uma or no one -- which would have been the better choice.   While the project manager is tearing his hair out over not being able to get [able and willing] people, the Harvard MBAs in finance are boasting to the boss how they think they are saving money by using H-1B workers.   Many people are unable to understand why companies clamor for move H-1B workers when these folks are so inept.   For example, recently Rush Limbaugh was incredulous when his caller explained this.   It is easy to explain why H-1B workers are so incompetent.   Assume for the moment you are doing the hiring for a programming job.   You have 2 candidates that both have 10 years of experience.   One is a computer science graduate and the other is a history major.   Which one is most likely to be the better programmer? Easy! The history major.   The only reason a history major would stay in programming for 10 years is that she is pretty good at it.   She probably did a little programming on the side, discovered her talent, and moved into the job market.   If a computer science major cannot program, what else is he going to do?   Collectively, computer science (and related) majors make the worst programmers.   If you look at the incentives, the reason for H-1B incompetence is obvious: We have told the world 'Become a programmer and you can come to the United States'.   Thus, the H-1B program attracts people with no computer talent who persist because of the immigration opportunities.   Which gets us back to coverage of the hearing.   The Indian trade group NASSCOM is in defense panic mode now that Palmer has drawn attention to the industry’s collective incompetence.   I especially like this headline: 'NASSCOM rubbishes Jack B. Palmer's charges of poor skillset of H-1B visa holders'.   The reality here is that Southern California Edison, Northeast Utilities, Cargill, Walt Disney World, and all the others are not going to save a dime hiring incompetent Indian off-shoring [and cross-border bodyshopping] firms...   There is money to be made from out-sourcing [and off-shoring, and cross-border bosyshopping] management consulting.   There is money to be made from holding out-sourcing [and off-shoring, and cross-border bodyshopping] conferences.   But there is no need to hire a 'why you shouldn't out-source' consultant."

IBEW Local 47 business-manager Patrick Lavin says push to increase H-1B visas is all to drive down compensation
"Lavin: [14:15] 'Any politician, senator, congressman that votes to expand the H-1B visa program, I personally will not endorse nor will I vote for them.   Again, I think a better use of H-1B would be to find replacements for those senators and congressmen.'"
Yebbie Booosh shows his ignorance: "'We have this H-1B visa program for highly skilled workers... [There is absolutely no skill-level requirement to get an H-1B visa, and 92%-98% of H-1B grantees are mediocre lights doing mediocre kinds of jobs]...   and there's a cap on the number of people who are allowed to get green cards out of this process.   We have a million [actually about 600K-700K] H-1B visa holders that are here and only 250K-300K a year are allowed in [actually a vastly excessive 130K-150K per year get new/initial H-1B visas and about 1% are considered worthy enough by their employer/sponsors to be sponsored for a green card, but they're only willing to pay those they sponsor for green cards about 0.001% above the median, rather than the 30% to 500% premium one would expect if they were highly-skilled]...   so the math suggests that a majority of these people who want to stay are having to leave, and they become our economic competitors...   It's foolish.   This is not a zero sum game.   I think a lot of people view immigration as, Well, by supporting immigrants, you're taking away from me [just because employers order able and willing US citizen STEM professionals to train the cheap, young, pliant H-1B guest-workers with questionable ethics, or lose any severance benefits, Yebbie can't see how it's directly harming US citizens, and refuses to even consider looking into the indirect harm, e.g. from able and willing US citizen STEM professionals who are never hired into STEM jobs because no one looks at their resumes, the millions of US citizen STEM professionals who are under-employed and not leveraging their STEM knowledge and skills, the undermining of professional ethics...].'

"...As our friend Mark Levin observed, Fox News and other Republican-leaning media outlets have not been silent [but] doing the Bush campaign's trashing of Cruz for them.   Said Levin: 'As you all know I'm a huge fan of the Fox News channel.   Particularly certain hosts.   But I have to wonder: if Ronald Reagan was running in 1976 starting in 1975 against Gerald Ford, how most of the people at Fox would treat him.   Because to my great dismay -- as I was preparing for the program, I had my favorite cable network on -- and a number of the people were trashing Ted Cruz.   Not enough experience, he's too young, too conservative, needs a bigger tent, he's down in the polls...   These people are neophytes.   Neophytes.   They've never fought in Republican primaries for conservative candidates.   They don't even take the time to learn the history of this country or the Republican Party.   And I am convinced that if Reagan were alive today and Gerald Ford were live today, and we were doing a re-run of 1975-1976, Reagan would be trashed all over our favorite cable channel.'   Levin went on to cite ad hominem attacks on Cruz from various Fox News personalities such as commentator Charles Krauthammer and the various panelists of 'The Five'...   Levin's response to Krauthammer's criticism of Cruz was one we share -- the good doctor missed the entire Reagan revolution while he was working for Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale, so like Levin we are not particularly overwhelmed by his repeated dissing of conservative outsiders like Cruz..."

Ted Cruz in good-natured sarcasm noted that there's nothing like the warm embrace of the leftist main-stream media
Cheryl K. Chumley: World Net Daily
"The day after announcing his presidential ambitions, Cruz told Megyn Kelly [that] one of his favorite comments came from the New York Times, which said that Cruz could not be swayed by the Washington elites, who hate him.   'And I have to admit, my immediate thought was, holy cow, do I have to disclose that to the Federal Election Commission (the agency that tracks political contributions)?   I mean, I can't think of a better summary of why I'm running.   If you're looking for a candidate embraced by the Washington political elite, I ain't your guy.'   Cruz, a first-term senator, said he's running for president because, 'I love the Constitution.   And I am fighting for freedom.'   Amid the grid-lock in Washington, he said his accomplishments include 'stopping bad things from happening', including gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting..."

illegal alien convicted of murder in California has been declared "rehabilitated" and paroled into the USA
Marisa Gerber: Los Angeles CA Times
"Edel Gonzalez expected to die in prison for the crime he committed at 16.   For his role in the 'savage, brutal and senseless' car-jacking that ended in murder, an Orange county superior-court-judge in 1993 sentenced Gonzalez, who wasn't the triggerman, to life in prison without the possibility of parole...   In late 2013, Orange county superior-court-judge Thomas Goethals held a resentencing hearing in the case, in which he condemned how the 'life was snuffed out' of the victim, a teacher's aide.   During the hearing, a prosecutor described how a .44-magnum bullet splattered bits of the victim's brain throughout her car, and told a judge that he hadn't been able to get in touch with the victim's one known relative...   Gonzalez, who emigrated from Mexico as a toddler, was released Tuesday on parole and into the custody of immigration officials, corrections officials said."

what's gone wrong with "democracy"?
"The suggestion is that democracy is some kind of ideal for organizing human conduct.   That's a popular misconception.   The ideal way to organize human conduct is to create a system that maximizes personal liberty for all.   Liberty and democracy are not synonymous and most often are opposites.   In Federalist Paper #10, James Madison explained, 'Measures are too often decided, not according to the rules of justice and the rights of the minor party, but by the superior force of an interested and overbearing majority.'   Democracy and majority rule confer an aura of legitimacy and respectability on acts that would otherwise be deemed tyrannical.   Let's look at majority rule, as a decision-making tool, and ask ourselves how many of our life choices we would like settled by majority rule.   Would you want the kind of car you own to be decided through a democratic process, or would you prefer purchasing any car you please?   Ask that same question about decisions such as where you shall live, what clothes you purchase, what food you eat, what entertainment you enjoy and what wines you drink.   I'm sure that if anyone suggested that these choices be subject to a democratic process, we would deem it tyranny.   Our Founders saw democracy as a variant of tyranny.   At the 1787 Constitutional Convention, Edmund Randolph said, '...that in tracing these evils to their origin every man had found it in the turbulence and follies of democracy.'   John Adams said, 'Remember, democracy never lasts long.   It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.   There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.'   [Even power-mad fan-boy of monarchy] Alexander Hamilton said, 'We are now forming a Republican form of government.   Real Liberty is not found in the extremes of democracy, but in moderate governments.   If we incline too much to democracy, we shall soon shoot into a monarchy, or some other form of dictatorship.'   By the way, the word democracy appears in none of our founding documents..."

tracing the genetic origin of Europe's first farmers reveals insights into their associations
"Farming was established in Central Europe by the Linearbandkeramik culture (LBK), a well-investigated archaeological horizon, which emerged in the Carpathian Basin, in today's Hungary.   However, the genetic background of the LBK genesis is yet unclear.   Here we present 9 Y chromosomal and 84 mitochondrial DNA profiles from Mesolithic, Neolithic Starčevo and LBK sites (seventh/sixth millennia BCE) from the Carpathian Basin and southeastern Europe.   We detect genetic continuity of both maternal and paternal elements during the initial spread of agriculture, and confirm the substantial genetic impact of early southeastern European and Carpathian Basin farming cultures on Central European populations of the 6th–4th millennia BCE..."

"On Wednesday night, the 'big 3' of ABC, CBS, and NBC all neglected to cover the latest problem facing likely Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a report from the Department of Homeland Security's [DHS's] inspector-general (IG) found that a senior DHS official assisted Clinton's brother Tony Rodham and Democrat governor Terry McAuliffe (VA) in obtaining visas for their foreign business associates.   According to the report, Homeland Security deputy-secretary Alejandro Mayorkas gave 'an appearance of favoritism and special access' while he led U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and 'communicated with' those seeking the approval of visas 'outside of the normal adjudicatory process and intervened with the career USCIS staff in ways that benefitted the stake-holders'...   FNC's chief White House correspondent Ed Henry reported that it spells 'fresh trouble' for Clinton and raises 'new questions about what her thousands of deleted e-mails might show' following the release of the IG report...   Tony Rodham ran a company involved in raising money for McAuliffe's venture building electric cars.   Republican Senator Chuck Grassley declaring, quote, 'Digging into the report and reading about specific cases, you can see just how questionable Mr. Mayorkas' ethics and judgment were.   And, just as bad, is the blind eye that the [Obummer regime and the senate] turned when elevating this individual to the number 2 spot at the Department of Homeland Security [DHS].'..."

Obummer's naive or evil deal to let Iran develop nuclear weapons, cloaked in deception?
"When PLO leader, Yasser Arafat, negotiated a 'peace' treaty with Israel, he was criticized by other Muslims for conceding too much.   Arafat responded with, what would be to the West, a cryptic response.   'I see this agreement as being no more than the agreement signed between our Prophet Muhammad and the Quraish in Mecca.'   This reference is to a peace treaty between Muhammad and his Quraish opponents in Mecca in 628, in which Muhammad broke the treaty after 2 years, claiming a Quraish infraction.   In justifying his actions, Muhammad said, 'If I take an oath and later find something else better, I do what is better and breach my oath.' (See, Sahih Bukhari V7B67N427).   This belief and actions are founded in the Quranic concept of 'Taqiyya' -- Deception.   It is founded in the Quran and carried out under Sharia law.   Under Sharia law, all human acts are categorized as either forbidden, discouraged, permissible, recommended or obligatory.   It is under sharia that in certain situations, 'taqiyya', or deception, is not only permitted but is required.   This obligation is found in various provisions of the Quran -- such as 4:29.   This obligation is historical.   During early Christian-Muslim battles, Muslims were forced to choose between recanting Islam or be put to death.   It was interpreted by Islamic jurists that in such situations Muslims were obligated to lie to the infidels..."

"...Last week, Southcom commander general John Kelly expressed concern about Iran's presence in Latin America and warned that Sunni extremists are radicalizing coverts and other Muslims in the region.   He also warned that terrorist groups like the ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate may exploit the knowledge of smugglers in Latin America to infiltrate the United States.   Breitbart News reported that Hezbollah operates across Latin America.   Experts said the Shiite movement organization, which is officially listed as a terrorist organization by the United States, generates millions of dollars through drug trafficking, money laundering, and other criminal activities in the Americas..."

critique of GOP over-spending budgets
"there's far too much spending in both plans, and neither chairman proposes to get rid of a single Department. Not HUD, not Education, not Transportation, and not Agriculture. Heck, the budgets don't even go after low-hanging fruit such as the Small Business Administration [SBA], National Endowment for the Arts, Corporation for Public Broadcasting [CPB], or Legal Services Corporation."
Ed Feulner: busting the budget
"Spending on K-12 education takes 1 cent of each dollar.   Transportation: 3 cents.   National defense: 17 cents.   'Income security', a term that encompasses such things as tax credits for the poor, welfare programs, etc.: 19 cents.   Net interest on the national debt: 7 cents.   But the big players are [unconstitutional programs: Socialist Insecurity] (24.3 cents) and spending on Medicaid, Medicare and other health care programs (26.3 cents)."

80-year record inventory of crude oil is straining USA's storage capacity; only 2 new refineries have been built in the USA since 1976, about 100 have been closed, but improvements have been made to many
WikiPedia
EIA FAQ
"There were 142 operable petroleum refineries in the United States as of 2014 January 1.   The 'newest' refinery in the United States began operating in 2008 in Douglas, Wyoming with an initial capacity of 3K barrels per calendar day (bbl/cd).   As of 2014 January 1, the facility has 3,800 bbl/cd of capacity.   However, the newest complex refinery with significant down-stream unit capacity began operating in 1977 in Garyville, Louisiana.   That facility came online in 1977 with an initial atmospheric distillation unit capacity of 200K bbl/cd and as of 2014 January 1 had capacity of 522K bbl/cd.   Ground was broken in 2013 March for construction of a new refinery in Dickinson, North Dakota.   The 20K barrel per stream day (bbl/sd) Dakota Prairie facility is scheduled to open in 2014 December.   Kinder Morgan plans to start up a 50K bbl/sd condensate processing facility on the Houston ship channel by the end of 2014."

Obummer's immigration legacy: lower wages and less security for US citizens
"Since he took office in 2009, deportations to date under [president Obummer] have plunged by 58%.   In fact, recent data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (US ICE) show that the rate of deportations in just the last 3 months have been cut by 43% compared with 3 years ago.   Now, there's the latest report from Judicial Watch indicating that as of 2014 April, federal immigration officials released nearly 872K illegal aliens, of which 165,900 are convicted criminals...   American citizens understand the serious economic impact of illegal immigration.   In addition to Americans having to compete with illegal immigrants for jobs, the nation as a whole has seen a dramatic depression in wages as we import more and more workers to compete for jobs.   Following complete inaction under the Clinton and Bush presidencies, [Obummer's] policies have further exacerbated the strain of illegal immigration on the nation's economy as well as our security...   Since last April, we’ve had nearly 166K criminal illegal aliens running loose in our communities, killing innocent Americans such as 21-year-old Grant Ronnebeck.   His uncle, Michael Ronnebeck, delivered a heartbreaking testimony before a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee panel just a few weeks ago.   During his remarks, Mr. Ronnebeck spoke of his nephew's murder at the hands of an illegal alien with an extensive criminal record, but who had been apprehended and released by ICE in 2013..."

American Psychological Association (APA) and American Sociological Association (ASA) efforts to block debate about homosexual "marriage" are snake-oil
"...The APA and the ASA should be the guardians of good science.   Instead, they have joined the ranks of the pink panzers of political correctness.   Most studies we have seen that claim that children raised by same-sex parents suffer no disadvantages are so seriously flawed that in any other context, the ASA and APA would be the first to point out those methodological flaws...   they violate 'Stats 101'.   The most notable of these is the use of something called an opportunity sample...   Another flaw is what we call the snowball sample...   That only compounds the methodological problem...   In the last two years there have been a few reports from large sample surveys and they come up with very different conclusions.   Rather than 'letting the debate begin' by encouraging more diversity and exploration of competing hypotheses in robust surveys, the ASA is insisting on consensus, shutting down debate, aiding and abetting the hounding and persecution of those professors who dare to do good big-data research..."

Cruzing toward the resurrection of main-stream conservatism
Cybercast News Service
"The ambush-prone main-stream media (MSM) has difficulty trapping senator Ted Cruz, not just because he is mentally agile and verbally adroit.   He has truth and authenticity on his side, and it is much harder to trip up someone of that description.   Media watch-dog NewsBusters shares a litany of examples of MSM hosts doing their best to demean Cruz following the announcement of his presidential campaign.   Let's just glance at a few of those...   Cruz conceded the importance of building a coalition, but rejected the premise that it is necessary to dilute his principles in the process.   Cruz said, 'We need to bring together the old Reagan coalition of conservatives and evangelicals and libertarians and Republican women and young people...'   Would he ask [president Obummer] how ardent Second-Amendment supporters, opponents of his open-borders policy, those who reject his global-warming hysteria, pro-lifers, supply-siders and strong constitutionalists would fit into his rigidly leftist ideological coalition?...   Again, Cruz rejected the premise and struck back.   'You know, Jon, it's a funny thing when you work in the media that somehow you think it is a hard line to present a positive optimistic vision.   My speech today talked about imagining an America that gets back to free-market principles and the constitutional liberties the country was built on.'..."

"Both budgets embody a [moderate] vision of shrinking projected federal deficits by more than $5T over the coming decade, mostly by cutting health care and other benefit programs and without raising taxes...   The legislation is a non-binding blue-print that does not require [Obummer's] signature but lays the ground-work for future bills that seem destined for veto fights with the president...   On the budget, only two Republicans voted no: senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky, a pair of presidential hopefuls.   Two other potential GOP presidential candidates, senators Marco Rubio of Florida and [Lindsey Grahamnesty] of South Carolina, voted yes."

Iran: "death to America!"
"Maybe I'm too sensitive, but when a foreign autocrat leads his people in chants of 'Death to America!', I take it personally...   Some in Iran have urged that the 'Death to America' chant, common after Friday prayers and at political rallies, be down-played during negotiations over a nuclear deal, but the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) rejects this, insisting, according to the semi-official Fars News Agency, that the United States 'is still the great Satan and the #1 enemy of the (Islamic) revolution, and the Islamic Republic and the Iranian nation...'   Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, responded, 'When someone chants, Yes, certainly, death to America, we should take him at his word, and we shouldn't put him on the path to a nuclear bomb.'   We are left to wonder at the equanimity among high-ranking members of this administration at the unyielding hostility of the Iranian regime.   In late February, Iran blew up a full-size model of the U.S.S. Nimitz, an aircraft carrier, in the Persian Gulf.   The supreme leader's representative on the IRGC, Ali Shirazi, recently boasted, 'When we look at the Islamic world, we see that the culture of the Islamic Revolution has reached all countries and all Muslims throughout the world...   We shall not rest until we raise the flag of Islam over the White House.'..."

why it is a good policy to protect religious liberty
"The Indiana law is based on the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act—a law that has served the American people well for more than 20 years.   Passed with 97 votes in the senate and by unanimous voice vote in the House, the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act was signed into law by then-president Bill Clinton.   This federal law prohibits substantial government burdens on religious exercise unless the government can show a compelling interest in burdening religious liberty and does so through the least restrictive means.   No one has the right to have the government force a particular minister to marry them, or a certain photographer to capture the first kiss or a baker to bake the wedding cake...   By passing its Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Indiana joins the 19 other states that have implemented such laws.   11 additional states have religious liberty protections that state courts have interpreted to provide a similar level of protection.   These commonsense laws place the onus on the government to justify its actions in burdening the free exercise of religion..."

constant "activity" on the California border
"The San Ysidro port of entry just south of San Diego is the busiest border crossing in the world.   Hundreds of thousands of people cross daily.   Many thousands more enter through neighboring ports in San Diego and Imperial counties.   In fiscal year 2014, officers inspected more than 28M vehicles and 18M pedestrians entering southern California.   To accommodate this crush of people, Congress approved a billion-dollar expansion of the facilities at San Ysidro and nearby Calexico that is underway.   The project is said to have already reduced waiting times, which can exceed five hours.   Then there is the illicit flow of people around the ports of entry.   The San Diego sector is the historic epicenter for illegal immigration.   By the mid-1980s, the number of apprehensions reached well over half a million.   Illegal crossers would organize into groups of a hundred or more and enter on 'banzai runs'.   The incursions became so brazen and frequent that Congress initiated Operation Gatekeeper in the mid-1990s, increasing the number of agents and constructing a fence.   The initiative brought immediate results.   Apprehensions dropped significantly...   Authorities have discovered more than 75 underground passageways since 2008, some of which were designed by professional engineers.   One had lighting, ventilation, hydraulic doors, and a railway..."

  "When America lost, so did humanity and the cause of freedom, even in VietNam.   More people were killed in IndoChina in the first 3 years of the Commuist 'peace' than had been killed in 13 years of the anti-Communist war.   Those victims were a direct result of the anti-war movement efforts.   The survivors had been swallowed by a socialist police-state even worse than the corrupt regimes that it replaced.   Salting those wounds, the left showed a lack of concern for the victims that was matched only by its continuing alice towards America.   But what finally turned us away from the left was not only the evil it had done.   It was its inability to look at its deeds and make a moral accounting to steer an altered course that would keep it from contributing to similar tragedies in the future." --- David Horowitz 2013 _The Black Book of the American Left: vol1 My Life and Times_ pg230

"In 2012, the most recent year for which data is available, an estimated 91% of illegal immigrant males were in the workforce.   This compares to 84% of legal immigrant men and 79% of U.S.A.-born males, Pew Research Center demographer Jeffrey Passel in written testimony prepared for a March 26 hearing held by the senate Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee...   '[Illegal alien] men of working age [16 years of age and older] are considerably more likely to be in the work-force than U.S.A.-born men (91% versus 79%).', Passel declared in his written testimony.   'For women, the opposite is true; only 61% of [illegal alien] women are in the labor force, compared with 72% of U.S.A.-born women.', Mr. Passel continued.   The data provided by the Pew demographer show that U.S.A.-born females are more likely to be in the work-force than illegal immigrant women (61%) and legal immigrant women (68%), respectively.   In 2012, there were an estimated 10M more males (82.3M) participating in the work-force than women (72.7M), according to the U.S. Department of Labor...   [illegal aliens] made up about 5.1% of the labor force [but US ICE can't be bothered to lift a finger to find, arrest, deport, and remove them]."

only 40% of "middle class" who start college get degrees
KBMC Kansas City
CNN
"Only 40% of college entrants who were high school seniors in 2004 and whose families earned between $46K and $99K had secured bachelor's degrees by 2012, according to the first measure.   This compares to a graduation rate of 63% for those from the top of the income ladder, and 28% and 20% for moderate- and lower-income students, respectively.   Similarly, the second measure, which looks at all dependent students who started college in 2003 from families with incomes between $60K and $92K, found that only 45% had earned a bachelor's by 2009."

how privacy violators Google, FB, and other STEM executives pay their H-1B guest-workers
"An analysis of records from the Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) reveals that the median salary offered to H-1B applicants by some of the biggest tech companies -- Amazon, Apple, FB, Google and MSFT -- [based in hideously high cost-of-living areas] is well over $100K and continues to rise...   FB has been the most lucrative company for H-1B visa holders thus far in 2015 (of the five companies above), with a median salary of $135K across all positions.   But how do the companies stack up for specific roles?...   Note: All data cited in this piece represents median salary information from H-1B visa Labor Condition Applications (LCAs).   H-1B visa LCAs should not be confused with [actual compensation for those] granted H-1Bs.   After an LCA is approved, the company can enter their applicants into the H-1B visa lottery [and a visa applicant can sometimes choose among employer/sponsors].   Statistics on granted H-1B visas are not available through the OFLC."

why are we importing foreign labor at the expense of perfectly capable US citizens?
American Spectator
"Hira testified that the lion's share of recipients are not the cream of the work-force, but more like 'ordinary IT workers'.   As for the notion that there is a shortage of STEM workers, Hira added that if skilled workers were as much in demand as H-1B boosters suggest, SCE workers would have left for better jobs.   Instead, they are training their replacements.   Rutgers professor Hal Salzman has done extensive research on the STEM work-force and estimates that 10% to 15% of H-1B visas go to winners of a 'talent search'.   He believes the government should accommodate such hires.   But for the most part, the temporary jobs program exists to replace American workers at lower wages.   He slammed the program as a '20% off sale' on hiring..."

Ted Kennedy's ruinous immigration legacy: 50 years of low/non-existant standars, vastly excessive student and guest-work and green card visas
"It's worth reflecting on how much America has changed since 1965, and examine the effects of the legislation Kennedy promoted that brought it about.   The passage of the act marked a fundamental change in America's immigration policy: Rather than serving the interests of Americans and national unity by setting limits on immigration, the act put 'family unification' as the top priority, serving the interests of foreigners first...   Fifty years later, the Census bureau predicts that the foreign-born population is set to increase 85% by 2060, where Hispanics will see their number grow by the tens of millions and native-born whites are the only group expected to decline in both absolute numbers and fertility rates.   Fifty years later, the U.S.A. places no numerical limit on the immediate family members of aliens admitted into the country.   Despite holding only 5% of the world's population, the U.S.A. is the most popular destination in the world for immigrants, attracting 20% of all the world's [cross-border] migrants.   Fifty years later, the U.S.A. allows some 11M to 20M illegal aliens to squat on its territory while allowing over 1M more each year to legally enter the country.   Fifty years later, the native-born population of whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Jews and all the rest suffer economic loss while the foreign-born see net job growth.   Fifty years later, Central American governments are propped up by $12.2G in remittances taken out of the American economy by foreign workers the U.S.A. refuses to tax or expel.   Fifty years later, Central American migrants, thousands of whom are indigenous Mayans who can't write or speak even Spanish, storm the border in endless waves while federal agents fly them to nearly every state in the union without so much as a photo ID -- while American citizens are fondled and scanned by the very same TSA agents.   Fifty years later, we have 'representative' Luis Gutierrez threatening Americans in Spanish, vowing they they will be made to suffer 'electoral punishment' for resisting [yet another] path to citizenship for illegal aliens, declaring his one loyalty is the not to the United States but to foreigners breaking immigration laws, and printing 'Do Not Deport Me' cards for those same individuals.   Fifty years later, Americans are led by a president who illegally grants deportation stays for 5M illegals that will allow them to get [Socialist Insecurity numbers (SINs)] (and therefore the ability to vote in U.S. elections) along with $35K per head in tax benefit freebies forcibly taken Americans who managed to hold onto their jobs, who joyfully predicts that a 'president Rodriguez' will leave the borders wide open for future tsunamis of immigrants.   Fifty years later, American schools punish 'racist' students who wear shirts depicting the American flag and [tax-victim]-funded colleges vote to ban the flag after angry [illegal aliens] complain it 'triggers' them.   Fifty years later, illegal alien Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros received no jail time after she slaughtered 2 Oregon children playing in a leaf pile by running them over, fleeing the scene, having her car taken to a car wash to scrub off the gore, and lying to police about her hit-and-run.   Fifty years later, illegal alien Ramiro Ajualip is charged with savagely raping and sodomizing a 10-year-old Alabama girl while her parents left her alone in the presence of their 'family friend'.   Fifty years later, Vanessa Pham's family carries on without their daughter, who died after the PCP-addled illegal alien Julio Blanco Garcia stabbed her more than a dozen times after she gave him and his toddler a ride to a hospital.   Fifty years later, American marathon runners walk on prosthetic limbs and suffer through countless painful surgeries after Muslim Chechen immigrants Tamerlane and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were granted asylum so they could plot against the country that bent over backwards to accommodate them.   Fifty years later in Boston, where English colonists sparked what would become the American Revolution, nearly half of all children have at least one foreign-born parent.   'Learning English isn't so easy' thanks to incredible demand for adult English-language classes, reports Boston.com.   'Boston can't benefit from its diversity if everyone can't communicate.'   [Tax-victime] are on the hook for $500K to teach just 200 students, yet total enrollment in these classes stands at 3,400 with another 4K immigrants on wait lists.   The costs Americans pay in lowered wages, strained social safety nets, their children's blood, their declining quality of life, the chaos of sharing space with an ever-swelling criminal population aided and abetted by the nation's elite, the berating Americans of every stripe endure when they dare ask their country merely be preserved -- that's the real legacy of Ted Kennedy."

Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco CA: jobs find workers more often than workers find jobs
Wall Street Journal
Carlos Carrillo-Tudela, Bart Hobijn, Patryk Perkowski, & Ludo Visschers: FRBSF Economic Letter
"...people on a pay-roll actively search for jobs at about half the rate as those without jobs.   Employed workers who search are much more likely to transition into a new job than those who do not.   However, roughly three-quarters of job switchers did not report having looked for a new job, because there are many more nonsearchers than there are job-seekers.   Instead, workers who switched jobs seem to have been actively sought out and recruited by their new employers...   About 4.3% of wage and salary workers reported actively searching for a new job, compared with about 9% of those without a job.   Our 4.3% estimate may seem tiny, but active job-searchers constitute a significant labor market force.   In February 2005, for example, of the 130M wage and salary workers in the United States, almost 5M were actively searching for a new job.   Adding these on-the-job searchers to the roughly 8M unemployed yields a total of 13M individuals who were searching for new jobs that month...   Table 1...shows that more than three-quarters [77.6%] of workers who switched employers did not report active job search in the previous 3 months [but only 1.8% of employed who did not actively search were hired into new jobs, while 29.1% of those who were unemployed and actively seeking work got jobs]."

is Harry Reid going out the door one step ahead of the posse?
"Earlier in the week, the Department of Homeland Security's [DHS] inspector-general issued a scathing report that concluded 'Reid pressured a compliant DHS official to over-ride normal departmental procedures and rush through 230 EB-5 foreign visa applications, thereby freeing up $115M the applicants invested in the SLS Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas [SLS].'   In his articles for Breitbart Michael Patrick Leahy reported that 'the owner of that casino project had hired Reid's son, Rory Reid, to provide legal representation for the project'.   The younger Reid represented SLS during 2012 and 2013, the same time his father intervened in the DHS EB-5 foreign visa application process on behalf of SLS.   Now recall almost exactly a year ago our friends at NewsMax broke the story that then senate majority-leader Harry Reid's son, Rory Reid, represented a giant Chinese energy firm, ENN Energy Group that wanted to use federal land, grazed by the Cliven Bundy family, as part of its effort to build a $5G solar farm and panel-building plant in the southern Nevada desert.   The revelations in Greg Richter's NewsMax article began to spark speculation in the darker reaches of the internet that the Bureau of Land Management's attack on the Bundy Family ranch was little more than a government sanctioned hit on Cliven Bundy and his family.   In addition to representing ENN Energy Group, Rory Reid also happens to be the former chairman of the Clark county (Nevada) Commission who persuaded the commission to sell 9K acres of county land to ENN on the promise it would provide jobs for the area.   Reuters reported back in 2012 that part of the land ENN wants to use was purchased from Clark county at well below appraised value..."

"At first blush, it wouldn't appear that older workers have it all that bad in today's economy. They got their start long before the economy's Troubles really began seven years ago (or even 17 years ago). They had time to sock away money while times were still good. The unemployment rate among workers over 55 is 4.1%, compared with 5.7% for the population overall, and labor force participation among older workers has been rising since the early 1990s [when the H-1B visa program was hatched]. That's arguably a better position to be in than that of a young person whose earnings potential has been forever damaged by starting out in the Great Recession..."

  "Japan went from being a backward feudal society to becoming a modern industrial nation by learning from Europeans and Americans, both by sending their students to study in Europe and the United States and by bringing Europeans and Americans to Japan to teach the needed skills or to provide the industrial experience required to launch Japanese industries. In the United States, the immigrant generation of Jewish children in late 19th and early 20th century New York City were taught largely by Irish Catholic teachers, while the generation of black children arriving in Harlem in the 1930s and 1940s were far more often taught by Jewish teachers than by black teachers." --- Thomas Sowell _Black Rednecks & White Liberals_ pg286

senator Jeff Sessions criticized Intel execs over anti-US-citizen H-1B increase push
"slammed Intel, the technology company, for seeking to replace the American workers the company laid off last year with cheap foreign workers via the H-1B program...   If Intel has 1K jobs to fill, then it should offer those jobs to American workers first -- including from among the tens of thousands who have been laid off.   One estimate pegs IT jobs cuts at more than 100K in 2014.   Overall, according to the Census Bureau, more than 11M Americans with degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics [STEM] currently do not hold jobs in those fields.   For recent graduates in these fields, the numbers are equally stark: about 35% of science students, 55% of technology students, 20% of engineering students, and 30% of math students recently graduated are now working in jobs that don't require a 4-year college degree.   It is in the national interest that these students -- many who accumulated great debt to obtain these degrees -- should be given priority for jobs.   Unfortunately, as professor Ron Hira testified, the H-1B visa has become 'a highly lucrative business model of bringing in cheaper H-1B workers to substitute for Americans...   Most of the H-1B program is now being used to import cheaper foreign guestworkers, replacing American workers, and under-cutting their wages.'... 'When you get to the Ph.D. level, the number of people who specialize in engineering gets smaller and the universities don’t produce enough people with master's and Ph.D.s.', [INtel VP and director of HR Ardine Williams] said. [But in reality, Intel hires extremely few people with PhDs.]"

UKIP leader Nigl Farage criticized David Cameron's record of lax/excessive immigration
"Mr Farage continued: '5 years ago David Cameron said that he would reduce immigration into Britain back to 1990s levels, i.e. tens of thousands a year, not hundreds of thousands a year.'   He said that although the British people could understand that circumstances change, there was a 'specific problem with that promise', which is that Cameron was being 'wilfully dishonest because he knew the truth that you cannot have an immigration policy; you can't set targets at all; you can't attempt to control who comes into Britain all the while you're members of the European Union.'... UKIP would like to see immigration levels return to what Mr Farage called normality of around 30K net influx each year. Mr Cameron promised to cut net immigration to below 100K when he came to power, but the most recent official figures show that net migration reached 280K people in the year to last September, higher than when Mr Cameron made his fateful promise..."
as of 2010-01-01, the UK had an estimated population of 62M; 243,610 square kilometers = 94,060 square miles; 255people/square kilometer = 660people/square mile; "England officially became the second most crowded major country in the EU in 2008".
Scotland in 2011 had a population of 5.2M; 64/square km = 167.5/square mile.

House Dems/Reds/leftists have been issuing "get out of jail" cards to illegal aliens
"That's a hard one to swallow, but apparently it's the case, according to a March 26 edition of The Hill newspaper, which tells us that "the Democrats are issuing 'emergency cards' to potential participants [of the president's unconstitutional and illegal 'executive action' programs to prevent the deportation of millions of illegal aliens] and asking them to present those cards in the event they're detained by an immigration official.   Note the way the newspaper, in its zeal to maintain political correctness, ducks calling the recipients of these 'emergency cards' illegal aliens.   No, they're just 'potential participants' of the president's constitutionally dubious programs.   Keep in mind that the reason the 'emergency card' has become necessary is because the third wheel in our tripartite system of government -- the judiciary -- is sufficiently doubtful about the legality of those programs that it has issued a restraining order to prevent the executive branch from actually instituting them until the matter is heard and fully resolved in the courts...."

***which jobs and how many does illegal immigration cost?***
"'The fact that workers in general and less-educated natives in particular have not fared well in the last 35 years is not what we would expect if immigration improved the employment prospects and wages of natives across the board.   After all, the immigrant share of the work force roughly tripled after 1980, so if Davidson is right, this should have been a boom time for wages and employment.   In fact, the opposite happened.   Davidson seems unfamiliar with other studies showing that immigration reduces the employment of the native-born, such as this one by a Federal Reserve economist that indicates immigration has significantly reduced the employment of American teenagers, or this study andthis study from Johns Hopkins, both of which show that immigration reduces the employment of African Americans.'...   There are trade offs to mass immigration; winners and losers.   That is at the heart of George Borjas's work.   From George Borjas -- Cato Institute presentation on his book _Immigration Economics_ 2014 June 11: 'How much do native workers lose?   Well if you believe this model, $400G.' (32:30)   'What immigration basically does is create a redistribution of wealth from labor to people who use immigrants.' (32:45)   'All of the lessons that economics teaches you don't really imply a single thing about what kind of policy the US should pursue and the reason is that the kind of policy the US should pursue depends not just on the facts but also depends on the kind of country we want to be -- what is the objective function of immigration policy?   What do we want it to accomplish?' (49:11)   'The question you have to ask yourself is who are you rooting for?' (53:08)...   According to a 2014 study by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston (pdf), 'for every foreign-born nurse that migrates to a U.S. city there are between 1 and 2 FEWER native RNs observed working in the city'.   The study found that over a 10-year period, the flow of foreign-born nurses in the United States has reduced the number of native-born Americans [taking] licensing exams..."

the current state of black Americans, losing under Obummer
Washington DC Times
"having been elected both times with record turn-out by blacks, the black unemployment rate remained stagnant at 11% while the black poverty rate hit a record high of 27%...   Yet in practice, blacks have found themselves isolated and gerrymandered on the local level -- ultimately unable to build coalitions to advocate for broad-based change within the Democratic Party ghetto.   Furthermore, blacks are starting to fall behind economically -- and not just at the lower levels of the socioeconomic spectrum.   Even black college graduates have fallen prey to intractable unemployment in a rapidly changing economic climate for all Americans.   The point here is that the price of identity politics may have proved too high..."

self-enforcing discrimination
Creators Syndicate
Jewish World Review
Town Hall
"A fundamental law of economics posits that the lower the cost to do something the more people will do of it.   That applies to doing anything, including discrimination...   How about a couple of real-world examples of minimum prices? During South Africa's apartheid era, the secretary of its avowedly racist Building Workers' Union said, 'There is no job reservation left in the building industry, and in the circumstances, I support the rate for the job (minimum wage) as the second-best way of protecting our white artisans.'   The South African Nursing Council condemned low wages received by black nurses as unfair.   Some white nurses said they would refuse wage increases until the wages of black nurses were raised.   Racist intentions were obvious during the legislative debate on the Davis-Bacon Act (1931), the nation's first federal minimum wage law.   Among the statements of support for this racially discriminatory law were those of representative William Upshaw, D-GA, who complained about the 'super-abundance or large aggregation of Negro labor'.   Representative Miles Allgood, D-AL, said, 'That contractor has cheap colored labor that he transports, and he puts them in cabins, and it is labor of that sort that is in competition with white labor throughout the country.'   American Federation of Labor president William Green complained, 'Colored labor is being sought to demoralize wage rates.'..."

  "For children born on Path A, their sense of connection to the world, their happiness may always stem from a logical, analytic place of being; they resonate less to emotional-relatedness and more to intellectual pursuits.   These are the often intellectually gifted childen who can easily lose themselves in projects and learning, oblivious to the world outside their obsession, for whom facts and figures, problems and patterns are the stuff that dreams are made of, the 'little scientists' on the spectrum.   For these children, their sense of being and relatedness is tied to what they do instead of to what they feel.   They relate to friends who have the same shared interests.   Path B children, in contrast, feel emotional-relatedness right fom the start.   They eagerly, although inappropriately at first, express emotions, make their needs and wants known through emotional channels, they 'feel out' their world through their sense of social-emotional connection and are deeply affected when they and their world are out of sync with each other.   Emotions infuse their being.   They are emotionally demonstrative." --- Temple Grandin & Sean Barron 2005 _The Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships_ pp xii-xiii
