the "Magic Kingdom" and the H-1B
"ComputerWorld recently published an account that gets at an important aspect of the immigration debate that doesn't often take center stage: the H-1B and L-1 visa program for [cheap, young, pliant guest-workers with questionable ethics and skill levels].   At issue is the allegation that Disney fired anywhere between 135 and 'several hundred' of its 'IT' staff and replaced them with workers mainly from India, many of whom were presumed to be on H-1B's.   The article goes on to note that Disney is at the [battle-line] of a movement to [reduce] the cap on the number of these visas issued each year..."
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.   Over 2,589,226 H-1B visas have been issued from FY1990 to FY2014 according to the State Department annual reports.

the Marshall Islands' cautionary tale
"The Maersk Tigris is flagged to the Marshall Islands.   The South Pacific archipelago gained its independence from the US in 1986 after signing a treaty conceding its right to self-defense in exchange for US protection.   According to the treaty, the USA has 'full authority and responsibility for security and defense of the Marshall Islands'.   Given the USA's formal, binding obligation to the Marshall Islands, the Iranian seizure of the ship was in effect an act of war against America...   OT1H, the Iranians are signaling that they are willing to sign a deal with the Great Satan.   And this makes sense.   For them the deal has no down-side.   First there's the money.   Last week the State Department indicated that it won't rule out paying Iran a $50G 'signing bonus'...   Iran is spending $3G a month to finance its war in Syria...   during Syrian defense-minister general Fahd al-Freij's visit to Tehran this week, he was instructed to enable Hezbollah to open a front against Israel on the Golan Heights.   Iran's 'signing bonus' would pay for Iran's new war against Israel.   As for their nuclear weapons program, even [Obummer] admitted that when his deal expires in 10 years, Iran will have the capacity to build nuclear weapons at will..."

"...Using the gene-editing CRISPR technology, a team of researchers at Sun-Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China were able to edit out the gene responsible for a potentially fatal blood disorder, Sky News reported.   Although the study only resulted in a small fraction of the 86 edited embryos actually containing the replacement genomes, the accomplishment still marks the first time such a project was conducted on human subjects.   For the majority of the embryos, the CRISPR technology did not work at all, and in a small fraction of the embryos the gene editing caused unintended genetic mutations.   Others ended up with edited genes in only some cells but not the others.   The scientists admit that the technology is not yet ready for real life application and, as reported by MIT Technology Review, the team did not attempt to establish a pregnancy in any of the fetuses for ethical reasons..."

DC selling out the US constitution and Main Street: Trade Promotion Authority (TPA)/Fast Track and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
"Why do companies like Wal-Mart and Apple [and GE and MSFT and IBM and FB and Oracle] want free trade so badly with these Pacific Rim countries? The answer is simple: so they can export jobs and import cheap goods at the expense of the American worker...   Although the president is granted broad negotiating powers for treaties, Fast Track guts the [US constitution's] two-thirds requirement for senate ratification, limits debate, eliminates amendments and requires a mere simple majority in both houses of congress for the passage of any trade agreement under the allotted procedure.   Fast Track binds the hands of future Congresses by ceding the power of trade agreements beyond the 2-year term of its current members.   In other words, a popular revolt against Fast Track at the ballot box would be toothless since the sitting president would have to sign a new law repealing their own extra-Constitutional power to regulate trade without congress's consent...   Like previous trade agreements, TPP would bar Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) laws so Americans won't know where the food they are eating is coming from.   The TPP would even allow foreign courts to overrule US federal and state courts.   This will be true for labor, environmental, tax, as well as COOL laws...   Since the U.S. signed NAFTA in 1994, the American trade deficit with the world has grown by almost 500% to $722G in 2014 and nearly 4M U.S. manufacturing jobs have vanished in the post-NAFTA era...   One of our companies was founded by Paul Revere in 1801 and is likely the oldest basic manufacturing company in the country.   Revere produces copper and brass sheet, strip and coil which are shipped to other manufacturing companies mostly in North America.   Since 2000, over 30% of the facilities Revere ships to in the United States have shut down and their production moved off-shore..."

corruption, politics, and an immigration "investor" program gone awry
"...Among the world's wealthy, a half million dollars doesn't amount to much at all.   In the main, what is more important to them is to make sure the 'investment' gets steered into something that gets them what they really want -- the resident alien card.   So if they have to wheel-and-deal with suspect, but politically connected, middle men and dubious regional centers, it's just business as usual.   After all, graft and politics go hand-in-hand in nearly every country on earth.   Politicians seem drawn to money in the way that sharks are drawn to blood in the water: the merest scintilla of a scent brings them from miles away...   Americans should be worried by these events, which it's important to note have not developed overnight.   They have been allowed to fester.   The EB-5 program has evolved beyond a badly run immigration program into a sleazy mire in which members of our political elite practically throw themselves bodily on the money scrum.   This does not bode well for our republic.   Does nobody remember Abscam?"

jihadi attack in Garland, TX -- media ignore Islam motivation
"The Islamic State or ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack on free speech and, during which, in addition to the dead jihadis, an unarmed security guard was shot in the ankle...   A spokesman for the Garland (Texas) Independent School District confirmed Joiner, who is married with 3 children, was shot in the leg and taken to the hospital.   He was released just hours later.   In the aftermath of the shooting, while the building was still under a police-imposed security lock-down, those inside started to sing patriotic songs, including the national anthem and God Bless America, and said a prayer for the injured security guard after one woman pulled out an American flag from her bag...   The SITE Intelligence Group, a private intelligence group, reported that an Islamic State (IS) fighter claimed on Twitter that the shooting was carried out by two pro-Isis individuals.   In a series of tweets and links, a jihadist named as Abu Hussain Al Britani, which SITE said was British IS fighter Junaid Hussain, claimed that '2 of our brothers just opened fire' at the Prophet Muhammad exhibition in Texas...   Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, an organizer of the free speech event, said the group decided to hold the event in the Curtis Culwell Center because members had heard that a Muslim group had a conference in the same room after the attack on the Charlie Hebdo office.   Ms. Geller described Sunday's event as pro-free speech, and said that Muslims had become a 'special class' that Americans were no longer allowed to offend.   Ms. Geller responded to the shooting by writing on her web-site: 'This is war on free speech. What are we going to do?   Are we going to surrender to these monsters?...   The war is here...   The media is self-enforcing a Shariah.', she said, referring to Islamic law.   'Under the Shariah you cannot criticize or offend Islam.'...   Prior to Sunday's cartoon contest, Geller's group was known for mounting a campaign against the building of an Islamic center blocks from the World Trade Center site and for buying advertising space in cities across the U.S. criticizing Islam..."

ancient DNA tells a new human story
"Tuberculosis in the Americas today is derived from a genetic strain of the disease brought by European settlers.   That is no great surprise.   But there's a twist: 1K-year-old mummies found in Peru show symptoms of TB as well.   How can this be—500 years before any Europeans set foot in the Americas?...   all human strains of tuberculosis share a common ancestor in Africa about 6K years ago.   The implication is that this is when and where human beings first picked up TB...   The TB DNA in the mummies most resembles the DNA of TB in seals, which resembles that of TB in goats in Africa, which resembles that of the earliest strains in African people.   So perhaps Africans gave tuberculosis to their goats, which gave it to seals, which crossed the Atlantic and gave it to native Americans...   most modern Europeans have certain DNA sequences that are similar to those of some American Indians but different from those of most Asians, including natives of Siberia...   Eske Willerslev's research group at the University of Copenhagen, working with Russian scientists, read the genomes of two bits of human remains found near Lake Baikal in Siberia; one of these individuals lived 24K years ago, the other 17K.   Both had genes similar to modern Europeans and modern American Indians but distinct from modern Siberians or other East Asians.   As the researchers say in a paper published early last year in Nature, this implies that a population of hunter-gatherers lived in northern Eurasia in the last ice age and partly gave rise to the first Americans in the East and to Europeans in the West, before they themselves died out in Siberia and were replaced by immigrants from elsewhere in Asia.   This may help to explain the enigma known as Kennewick Man, a 9K-year-old skeleton from Washington state, which seems to have features more like those of a modern European than of a modern American Indian.   The earliest inhabitants of the Americas seem to have been distant cousins of Europeans, connected through Siberia, with their genes later diluted by other Asians migrating through Alaska...   mass migrations occurred repeatedly, overwhelming natives while absorbing some of their genes...   Just 4,500 years ago, long after the arrival of farming in Europe from the near East—a transition that had largely displaced the genes of the indigenous hunter-gatherers—another 'massive migration into the heartland of Europe from its eastern periphery' occurred.   People from the steppes northeast of the Black Sea swamped the European genome with their DNA, and that relatively new pool of DNA is still ubiquitous among Europeans today...   From Irish to Sanskrit, there are close similarities of vocabulary among most of the languages of Europe and those spoken in parts of Central Asia, Iran and India—connections not shared by languages like Basque, Turkish, Arabic, Hungarian and Finnish...   The recent research of Dr. Reich and his colleagues supports this latter hypothesis: Indo-European languages probably originated in the steppes just two millennia before the Christian era.   The discovery of the massive migration from the steppes 4,500 years ago was made possible by the analysis of DNA from 69 different individual bodies from between 8K and 3K years ago and the comparison of nearly 400K different sections on their genomes..."

"'Congress has the responsibility to ensure that any international trade agreement entered into by the United States must serve the national interest, not merely the interests of those crafting the proposal in secret.', Sessions' team writes in a document that lays out the top 5 concerns with the [Obummer] trade deal.   'It must improve the quality of life, the earnings, and the per-capita wealth of everyday working Americans.   The sustained long-term loss of middle class jobs and incomes should compel all law-makers to apply added scrutiny to a fast-track procedure wherein congress would yield its legislative powers and allow the White House to implement one of largest global financial agreements in our history—comprising at least 12 nations and nearly 40% of the world's GDP...   'The request for fast-track also comes at a time when the Administration has established a recurring pattern of sidestepping the law, the congress, and the Constitution in order to repeal sovereign protections for U.S. workers in deference to favored financial and political allies.'   The Sessions document then goes point-by-point for five full pages through the TPA trade deal, laying out why it wouldn't help Americans—rather, it would likely hurt American workers—and why the deal doesn’t in fact provide congress with more power over trade despite talking points from the [Obummer] trade deal's proponents like House Ways and Means committee chairman representative Paul Ryan (R-WI), senate majority-leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and House speaker John Boehner (R-OH)..."

Jade Helm 15, crime-stoppers, and KSK: never check your brains at government's door
"Benjamin Franklin said, 'Distrust and caution are the parents of security.'   He also said, 'Security without liberty is called prison.'   Both apply to what I want to share with you today in my culture warrior column.   Last Friday evening in Houston, my wife, Gena, and I were overjoyed to host the 22nd annual gala for our foundation, KICKSTART KIDS, or KSK, which seeks to build character through karate in students in Texas public middle schools.   We were equally honored to have as our special guests at the event Texas governor and Mrs. Gregg Abbott and Marcus Luttrell, a former United States Navy SEAL who received the Navy Cross and Purple Heart for his actions in 2005 June facing Taliban fighters during Operation Redwing. It was an amazing night and gala!...   I am reminded again of how true patriots need to continue to fight for freedom wherever we are...   I have an idea: If the government insists on running expanded military ops across seven Southwest states, why doesn't it move all that 'military training' south and protect our borders at the same time?!   Whatever Jade Helm 15 actually is, I think it is more than coincidental that the FBI director just confessed in February that the presence of ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate can be felt in all 50 states of the U.S.A. and that the Pentagon is suddenly running its biggest military training exercise with every branch of the military across seven Southwestern states.   Whether deterrence, display of power or something more covert or devious, let's not come with any patronizing non-sense of impotence and simplicity when its origin is in Washington [DC]..."

a trade water-shed? or trade disaster?
"All this provides context for the controversy over the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the trade negotiation among 12 countries (Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and VietNam).   Together, these nations represent almost 40% of the world economy, with the United States and Japan accounting for about four-fifths of that.   Negotiations cover many issues.   Japan has tariffs of 600% or more on rice.   Presumably, these would be reduced or eliminated.   Although theaverage trade-weighted U.S. tariff is 1.4%, there are exceptions.   U.S. tariffs on shoes range from 11% to 70%; VietNam wants them curbed.   Talks also involve less traditional issues: limits on subsidies to state-owned companies; patent protection, especially for drug companies; rules governing where computer data must be stored.   Still, plausible economic gains from expanded trade seem modest.   By 2025, the incomes of the 12 countries could increase by 0.9%, according to a revised estimate by a study for the Peterson Institute.   In today's dollars, that would be about $320G (the U.S. share: $85G).   By contrast U.S. GDP is approaching $18T, and global GDP is quadruple that.   The fuss over the Trans-Pacific Partnership seems disproportionate to the stakes...   One study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research estimates that Chinese imports eliminated between 2M and 2.4M U.S. factory jobs from 1999 to 2011.   That's roughly 40% of the 5.6M lost manufacturing jobs in these years.   Not everyone agrees.   Harvard economist Robert Lawrence says continuous production efficiencies explain most job loss..."

"Twice in recent weeks I've written about Sarah Saldana, the latest in a string of directors at Immigration and Customs Enforcement (US ICE) during the [Obummer regime], who took office last December.   Neither piece was particularly flattering, because she has quickly proven herself to be extremely tractable to the political whims of her bosses rather than true to her duties as head of a large enforcement organization with weighty responsibilities, and because even though she is a lawyer and former U.S. attorney, she hasn't taken the time to learn the laws governing immigration law enforcement and deportation.   Perhaps the lack of expertise in the law could be more easily overlooked if she were backed up by good, competent counsel from her professional legal adviser (PLA)...   There isn't any time for learning curves when thrown into such a demanding and sensitive position.   Of course, that presupposes that White House officials care about the law and its enforcement; these don't..."

Marco Rubio's plan to fight ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate over there and over here
"Do you remember the saying during the Bush years: fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here?   Rubio, who of course is running as an Adelson-backed foreign policy hawk, has promised interventions in multiple foreign countries.   But Rubio apparently wants to fight them over there AND over here.   His immigration plan would bring millions of middle eastern immigrants into the United States.   He has an UNCAPPED foreign green card program in his bill.   Check out what happened in Texas.   Behind every homegrown jihadist is an imported jihadist.   A block-buster report from the Center for Immigration Studies documents that fastest-growing block of immigration to the USA if from the Middle East.   Census Data shows that we admit roughly 100K Muslim immigrants legally each year.   In fact, Middle Eastern immigration is the fastest growing category of immigration into the United States.   The Census Bureau data, as summarized by Center for Immigration Studies, explains: 'The 41.3M immigrant population (legal and illegal) in 2013 was double the number in 1990, nearly triple the number in 1980, and quadruple that in 1970, when it stood at 9.6M.   The sending regions with the largest increases from 2010 to 2013 were South Asia (up 373K, 16% growth); East Asia (up 365K, 5% growth); the Caribbean (up 223K, 6% growth), the Middle East (up 208K, 13% growth); and sub-Saharan Africa (up 177K, 13% growth).'   These immigrants are mostly invited in with green cards.   There are many avenues for Muslim immigrants to enter the country.   For instance, the refugee program is a major source of Muslim immigration into the United States.   The clearest example of this is the Somali population in Minnesota: Minnesota has the largest Somali population in the country.   Reports show that Minnesota has struggled to stem terror recruiting.   The Minneapolis Star Tribune, just 2 weeks ago, reported that during the last 2 years, more than 20 Somali-Americans from Minnesota have left to fight alongside terrorists under the banner of ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate, according to the FBI.   And reported that 6 men from Minnesota were arrested and charged with planning to join ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate.   The UN is actively planning to settle 1M mostly Muslim refugees in predominantly western countries.   Another predominant way Islamic immigrants can gain entry to the United States is through student visas: 'Nearly 81K subjects of the Saudi kingdom are studying in the U.S.A. this school year, up from about 5K in 2000-2001.'...   Less discussed and publicized are the problems with integration and assimilation; for instance, the DoJ forced a school in Michigan to hire more Arab teachers to accommodate Arab immigrant students; and Somali refugees who continue to pour into the US in large numbers demand free Halal food from USA [tax-victims].   Yet congress is currently considering legislation -- senator Rubio's I-squared bill, which would substantially increase Muslim immigration by (1) creating an uncapped green card program for foreign students and (2) by tripling the H-1B visa which could easily be accessed by Muslim immigrants in India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc: Many people here who have overstayed their visas are also from middle eastern countries.   The Rubio-Schumer Gang of Eight bill [S744] would have made them citizens, and, like Rubio's I-squared bill, would substantially increase the already-surging Muslim immigration into the United States."

FCC commissioner Ajit Pai: FCC or FEC will seek to regulate web-sites based on political opinions and information
World Net Daily
"Federal Communications Commission (FCC) member Ajit Pai said over the weekend that he foresees a future in which federal regulators will seek to regulate web-sites based on political content, using the power of the FCC or Federal Elections Commission (FEC).   He also revealed that his opposition to 'net neutrality' regulations had resulted in personal harassment and threats to his family...   The rules, which are set to take effect on June 12, reclassify Internet providers as utilities and command them not to block or 'throttle' on-line traffic [nor to charge by the amount of data transferred]...   'What you're seeing now is an impulse not just to regulate the roads over which traffic goes, but the traffic itself.'...   In February, Pai co-authored an editorial with former FEC chairman Lee Goodman that warned of efforts by those agencies to regulate content on-line...   Pai also talked about the FCC's finances, the imposition of taxes on Internet usage, and subsidies for Internet service.   The reclassification of Internet providers as utilities allows the FCC to impose what is known as a 'Universal Service Fund' (USF) tax on their revenue.   The USF has grown exponentially in recent years, and presently stands at $12G annually -- so large that the FCC has requested it be allowed to transfer $25M of the money to its own budget to 'administer' the fund [i.e. engage in crony socialism].   As a result, some in congress have proposed limiting the size of the USF to $9G...   'the USF tax is 67% higher than it was in 2009'..."

"And if the program plays out in Spartanburg as it has in communities in Minnesota, California, Texas, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and other states, then the 60 refugees will blossom into hundreds and eventually thousands every year.   Minnesota, for example, is now receiving more than 2K Muslim refugees annually, mostly from Somalia.   Texas receives more than 7K per year, and California more than 6K, directly from the Third World...   Of the 815 Syrian refugees resettled in the U.S.A. so far, 749, or 92 percent, have been Muslim, according to State Department data.   Only 43 Syrians allowed into the U.S.A. have been Christians, even though the turmoil in Syria and Iraq has driven thousands of Christians from their homes under threat of death by ISIS.   The U.S.A. takes in more refugees than any other country, about 70K per year, and has absorbed 3M since 1975.   But since the early 1990s, the trend has been to accept more from Muslim countries...   These refugees are seen by the White House and its network of [excessive immigration conspirators] -- groups like National Council for La Raza, Welcoming America, the National Partnership for New Americans and the Chamber of [Crony Socialists] -- as potential 'new Americans'.   The refugees are set up with a full plate of government [hand-outs], placed on a fast track to citizenship and full voting rights..."

"Trade agreements, the trade negotiating process, and trade pact approval measures (i.e. 'fast track' authority) all must be carefully monitored to ensure that the trade deals do not cause increases in admissions of foreign workers or erode congressional authority over visa rules.   The current fast-track proposal (TPA) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would have Congress surrender its authority over guestworker policies to the executive branch and its trade negotiators and ultimately to international trade tribunals.   This means that we would be stuck with the dysfunctional guestworker programs that we now have and kept on a one-way street allowing only more access for foreign workers to U.S. jobs, with no means to reverse direction.   U.S. trade negotiators historically have sought to offer commitments on visas in trade agreements as a bargaining chip to other nations in exchange for over-seas market access for U.S. corporations.   They aim to guarantee other countries that their companies will be able to provide certain labor and professional services in the United States.   What they refer to as 'trade in services' often means foreign companies bringing in computer programmers, nurses, truck drivers, accountants, physical therapists, or even construction, assembly line, or agricultural workers.   These commitments usually result in increases in the number of foreign workers with access to U.S. job opportunities, which can adversely affect U.S. workers in certain occupations or geographic regions.   For example, the U.S.-Australia trade agreement of 2005 created a new visa category for Australian workers [E-3] that brings in thousands of new workers each year.   The most recent example is the new trade pact with South Korea, which included a provision to allow transferred employees of Korean companies (entering on L visas for intracompany transferees) to stay 5 years instead of 3.   These piecemeal changes add up.   Even more significantly, typically the trade agreement commitments lock in not only a specific number of guest-worker admissions, but also the guest-worker program rules, including criteria for admission, duration of stay, spousal employment, occupational categories, and conditions of employment.   This means that congress may [find it politically difficult making] changes to the programs to respond to changes in the U.S. economy or labor markets or to close loop-holes or other flaws in the program that lead to fraud or abuse, for example.   As one U.S. negotiator once told me, 'The point is to nail down access so that it cannot be changed.'   Depending on the commitments made by trade negotiators, if Congress were to later see fit to change the rules for any guestworker program covered by a trade agreement, another country that is a party to the treaty could seek to block them, maintaining that the new rules are a trade barrier.   Such disputes are resolved by international tribunals.   If the tribunal decides that the new rules disadvantage a business interest of the complaining country, the United States might have to reverse the rules, face sanctions, or pay damages [or negotiate a completely new agreement]...   an unaccountable panel of international trade referees.   Trade agreement proponents often maintain that the commitments 1) are not immigration-related because they involve non-immigrant or 'temporary' visas; and 2) make no changes to current immigration law.   These arguments are specious...   There is no need for immigration and visa commitments in trade agreements.   'Trade in services' has become a euphemism for the replacement of U.S. workers, and congress should not approve any deal or process that furthers this agenda."

"...In a world where the truth means so little, and head-strong preconceptions seem to be all that matter, what hope is there for rational words or rational behavior, much less mutual understanding across racial lines?...   You cannot take any people, of any color, and exempt them from the requirements of civilization -- including work, behavioral standards, personal responsibility and all the other basic things that the clever intelligentsia disdain -- without ruinous consequences to them and to society at large.   Non-judgmental subsidies of counter-productive life-styles are treating people as if they were live-stock, to be fed and tended by others in a welfare state -- and yet expecting them to develop as human beings have developed when facing the challenges of life themselves..."

_Catastrophic Failure: BlindFolding America in the Face of Jihad_ -- you've got to read this book
"Our friend Steve Coughlin has just released his much-anticipated book Catastrophic Failure: BlindFolding America in the Face of Jihad.   Coughlin is an attorney, decorated intelligence officer and noted specialist on Islamic law, ideology and associated issues as they relate to terrorism and subversion.   In 2001 September, right after 911, he was mobilized from his private sector career and assigned to the Directorate for Intelligence, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Targeting (JCS-J2T).   Over time, his responsibilities evolved into intelligence support to information operations and strategic communications from a targeting perspective.   In 2007, Coughlin was awarded a Master of Science of Strategic Intelligence from the Joint Military Intelligence College / Defense Intelligence Agency on the threat analysis aspects of Islamic law and related doctrines.   As a Major in the United States Army (res.), Coughlin was later assigned to USCENTCOM where he served in both an intelligence and strategic communications / information operations role.   And then in 2008 [Barack Hussein Obummer] was elected president, and suddenly telling and teaching the truth about Islam, its goals and its doctrine of information warfare, was no longer welcome at the White House and at the Pentagon...   explains how we got where we are in the war Islam has declared on the West and how we are destined to fail if we stay on the path we are now on.   Having studied Islamic culture since the 1970s, travelled extensively in the Islamic world, and lived and worked in a Muslim majority country I thought I had a solid understanding of Islam and the Muslim worldview.   And having served on the staff of Members of Congress who were on the Foreign Relations, Armed Services and Intelligence Committees pre and post-2001-09-11, I have a lot of insight into the thinking that has gone into the 'war on terror', the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the many errors American policy makers have made in prosecuting those wars.   Every time I hear Steve Coughlin speak or have the opportunity to discuss with him the war Islamists have declared on the West, and our response to it, I learn something new, insightful and most importantly, actionable..."

National Urban League's immigratin disconnect from reality
"...Marc Morial, former mayor of New Orleans [said] 'in post-recession America and as the recovery's brought jobs to the American mainstream, inner cities are being left behind.   The joblessness levels are far too high, particularly among young men and young men of color...'...   [Steven A. Camarota said] 'The poverty rate in Baltimore is 24%.   The unemployment rate for black men in Baltimore between the ages of 20 and 24 is 37%...   Now, compare that to the national average, which is the unemployment rate is 5.5% right now.' The web-site BlackDemographics.com sheds additional light on the plight of African American poverty nationwide: 'According to the 2012 U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey (ACS), the poverty rate for all African Americans in 2012 was 28.1%, which is an increase from 25.5% in 2005.   Actually, the poverty rate increased between 2005 and 2012 for every demographic of African Americans except those ages 65 and over who experienced a decrease from 21.2% to 19%.   Black families with children under 18 headed by a single mother have the highest rate of poverty at 47.5%.'...   well over 7M work authorizations have been given in the past several years, many hundreds of thousands of them to illegal aliens who have been beneficiaries of one form or another of [unconstitutional and illegal] 'executive action'.   The vast majority of aliens receiving those work permits are unskilled labor, which puts them into direct competition with the bottom rung of American workers, often black Americans, who are already struggling to survive.   And now the [Obummer regime] is pushing congress to fast-track approval for a trade agreement that would shred what's left of congress's already tattered control over immigration, because buried in that agreement is a poison pill.   According to NumbersUSA, 'Congress will soon take up 'fast track' trade promotion authority legislation that would allow [hate-filled, race-obsessed, anti-constitution oath-breaker president Barack Hussein Obummer] to submit trade agreements to congress for a simple-majority vote without being subject to amendment.   If passed, the first likely trade deal to come up is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which reportedly includes guest-worker provisions congress could not change.'..."

how congressional Reds/leftists/Dems try to control the immigration debate
"Lino Graglia, the Dalton Cross professor of Law at the University of Texas [testified] that birthright citizenship is unconstitutional...   The post–Civil War legislative history of the Fourteenth Amendment shows that its framers were seeking to guarantee the right of citizenship only to newly freed slaves and to reverse the Supreme Court's decision in Dred Scott, but today around 400K children born to people who are in the country illegally are given citizenship every year.   This would include about 40K who are born to birth tourists coming mostly from [Red China].   Polls show that the public overwhelming supports killing this perverse incentive for illegal immigration.   Senator Harry Reid called the policy 'insane' when in 1993 he introduced a bill to over-turn it.   As witness John Eastman noted in his testimony, birthright citizenship is 'one of the 3 magnets' for illegal aliens to break into the country, the others being higher wages and welfare..."

Rick Santorum _Breitbart_
an immigration policy for hard-working Americans
"For the past decade-plus, wages for the 74% of Americans who don’t have college degrees have been stagnant, and median income has fallen, in part because of a combination of millions of illegal immigrants and new legal immigrants coming to this country per year.   The impact of this economic stagnation has struck native-born African Americans and Hispanics harder than whites.   Since 2000, the employment rate for native-born African Americans has worsened by 9.2% and Hispanics by 7.7%, while employment for whites has worsened by 6.1%.   Granting amnesty only exacerbates this problem.   To me, the solution is clear.   First, we must secure the border and end the acute border surge.   The southwestern border is out of control.   The way to bring it under control is more and better fencing and more smartly-deployed manpower.   To be effective, a fence needs to be similar to the border fencing that Israel uses -- high with barbed wire, a screening fence, and a patrol road along it.   The complementary way to achieve operational control of the border is to strengthen the Border Patrol: complete surveillance systems; more manpower, especially in the short-run; and reformed Border Patrol operations...   Very roughly 40% of illegal immigrants first enter legally but then overstay their visas (the exact number is unknown).   The government's existing entry-exit tracking system, US-VISIT, does not track 100% of entries and tracks few exits.   It should be completed and track all of them...   Other enticements to illegal immigration, such as birthright citizenship, should be ended.   Only children born on American soil where at least one parent is a citizen or resident aliens is automatically a U.S. citizen.   Of developed countries other than the United States, only Canada has birthright citizenship...   Third, we should reduce legal immigration from its current level of 1.05M immigrants a year to about 750K [or, more practically manageable, 150K] annually...   I have compassion, respect and admiration for people around the world who want to be Americans.   It's our job to make sure America will always be a place for those immigrants we accept will be able to aspire to freedom and opportunity like my father.   We do that by keeping America safe, preserving her values and creating a strong economy for everyone.   An immigration policy that prioritizes American’s needs, workers, and families is where that starts."

Phyllis Schlafly: getting immigration under control is do-or-die for the USA
"'Once you have one amnesty, people are lining up for the next one.   It doesn't stop or end anything.   I think there are people who simply want to break up this country.', she said.   She said the critical time is coming when America will have to decide on open borders, amnesty, cheap labor and more, including its own future...   If it comes down to Bush vs. Clinton, will the American people really have a choice on immigration?   Schlafly doesn't think so...   At a time of high unemployment, some estimates [measures] range up to 20% in America now, it doesn't make sense to bring in more cheap labor, Schlafly reasoned.   She accused Clinton, who came out strongly in favor of amnesty this week, of being out of touch with working Americans...   The veteran activist also cautioned that trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership would create jobs in foreign countries, not in America, and would thus be counter to the national interest..."

do you ever wonder about the spin/slant of National Socialist Radio's Maria Hinojosa?
"An immigrant from Mexico, Hinojosa speaks with compassion for the undocumented and clearly believes they should be fully accepted into American society.   That advocacy has been a source of controversy.   As Hinojosa herself acknowledged in 2006, many listeners who had tuned in to a discussion of immigration protested that she was too biased to have been the moderator.   On last week's 'Latino USA' program, Hinojosa gave tribute to the highly acclaimed Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano, who recently died after a long struggle with cancer.   She played excerpts of interviews she had conducted with Galeano as far back as 2001.   Hinojosa made it clear that Galeano, a heroic figure of the Latin American left, had been a major influence on her thinking, particularly because of his 1971 book, _The Open Veins of Latin America_.   The Economist described the book as 'a scorching tirade against foreign exploitation'.   Its sales jumped in 2009 when word got out that [leftist] Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez pressed a copy into the hands of [hateful, race-obsessed, anti-constitution, oath-breaker president Barack Hussein Obummer]...   As the Spanish-language service of the Associated Press noted, the book 'is considered the bible of leftist movements in Latin America and shaped the conscience of hundreds of thousands of militants of more than one generation'..."

senator Jeff Sessions: top 5 concerns with "trade promotion authority"
"1.   Consolidation Of Power In The Executive Branch...   Is TPA designed to protect congressional responsibilities, or to limit congress' ability to do its duty?   2.   Increased Trade Deficits...   3.   Ceding Sovereign Authority To International Powers...   4.   Currency Manipulation...   5.   Immigration Increases.   There are numerous ways TPA could facilitate immigration increases above current law -- and precious few ways anyone in congress could stop its happening.   For instance: language could be included or added into the TPP, as well as any future trade deal submitted for fast-track consideration in the next 6 years, with the clear intent to facilitate or enable the movement of foreign workers and employees into the United States (including intra-company transfers), and there would be no capacity for law-makers to strike the offending provision.   The [Obummer regime] could also simply act on its own to negotiate foreign worker increases with foreign trading partners without ever advertising those plans to congress.   In 2011, the United States entered into an agreement with South Korea -- never brought before congress -- to increase the duration of L-1 visas (a visa that affords no protections for U.S. workers).   Every year, tens of thousands of foreign guest-workers come to the U.S.A. as part of past trade deals.   However, because there is little transparency, estimating an exact figure is difficult.   The plain language of TPA provides avenues for the Administration and its trading partners to facilitate the expanded movement of foreign workers into the U.S.A. -- including visitor visas that are used as worker visas.   The TPA reads: 'The principal negotiating objective of the United States regarding trade in services is to expand competitive market opportunities for United States services and to obtain fairer and more open conditions of trade, including through utilization of global value chains, by reducing or eliminating barriers to international trade in services...   Recognizing that expansion of trade in services generates benefits for all sectors of the economy and facilitates trade.'   This language, and other language in TPA, offers an obvious way for the Administration to expand the number and duration of foreign worker entries under the concept that the movement of foreign workers into U.S. jobs [displacing US citizens from those jobs both directly and indirectly] constitutes 'trade in services' [and this is exactly what has happened with earlier trade agreements]...   [Barack Hussein Obummer, Shrub, Clinton, and GHWBush have] already subjected American workers to profound wage loss through executive-ordered foreign worker increases on top of existing record immigration levels.   Yet, despite these extraordinary actions, the [Obummer regime] will casually assert that is has merely modernized, clarified, improved, stream-lined, and updated immigration rules.   Thus, at any point during the 6-year life of TPA, the [Obummer regime] could send congress a trade deal -- or issue an executive action subsequent to a trade deal as part of its implementation -- that increased foreign worker entry into the U.S.A., all while claiming it has never changed immigration law.   The president has circumvented congress on immigration with serial regularity.   But the TPA would yield new power to the executive to alter admissions while subtracting congressional checks against those actions.   This runs contrary to our Founders' belief, as stated in the Constitution, that immigration should be in the hands of congress.   The [supremes have] consistently held that the Constitution grants congress plenary authority over immigration policy.   For instance, the court ruled in Galvan v. Press, 347 U.S. 522, 531 (1954), that 'the formulation of policies [pertaining to the entry of immigrants and their right to remain here] is entrusted exclusively to congress...   [This principle] has become about as firmly imbedded in the legislative and judicial issues of our body politic as any aspect of our government.'   Granting the president TPA could enable controversial changes or increases to a wide variety of visas—such as the H-1B, B-1, E-1, and L-1—including visas that confer foreign nationals with a pathway to a green card and thus citizenship.   Future trade deals could also have the possible effect of preventing congress from reforming abuses in our guest-worker programs, as countries could complain that limitations on foreign worker travel constituted a trade barrier requiring adjudication by an international body..."
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.   Over 2,589,226 H-1B visas have been issued from FY1990 to FY2014 according to the State Department annual reports.

"'You go to Hollywood, where television shows and movies are written, produced, directed, paid for, starred in, you will find the homosexual population is much, much larger than 2% [rather than the actual approximately 1.5%].', says Rush.   'It is much larger, and therefore, control of the media, or having a fair amount of control of the media, is paramount to achieve what they have achieved...   You can't turn on a television show now, in prime-time -- you really can't -- without seeing some form of homosexual love, relationships and sex.   You can't miss it.   It's everywhere now.   And it's been creeping up with more and more prominence over the years...   it is being made to appear, in many ways, as normal as anything else is, which will then lend credence to the idea that the gay population is 30%...'"

heroine Pamela Geller, and why the leftists and Mohammedans fear her
"the contest was held in the same center where a previous Muslim conference was held to suppress free speech.   Geller made sure the event had tight security and a swat team was on site just in case.   Aside from a minor injury to a security guard, the two heavily armed jihadists who also wore body armor were shot dead in seconds by a traffic cop's pistol.   The only excuse I can find to explain the hostile reaction to Geller by the media is that they are all stupid cowards... We can't depend on this administration, the FBI or Homeland Security [DHS] to protect us from ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate and jihadists attacks [al-Qaeda, al-Shabab, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Hizballah...].   The FBI had one of the shooters under surveillance for years and sent out a memo concerning the Muhammad art contest that ruled out a likely attack on U.S.A. soil.   Not surprising since the [Obummer regime] has bent over backwards to make sure these agencies receive [sensitivity] training to respect Islam.   Meanwhile Christians are being slaughtered all over the world and the media is silent.   I'll tell you what hate speech is.   It is the Ayatollah Khameini of Iran, presently in [talks with Obummer to make sure they can develop their nuclear weapons and delivery systems], telling a crowd in Iran, 'Of course yes, death to America.'   It is Hamas, the PLO and others, promising the destruction of Israel..."

when is a multi-million dollar race horse stable a "small business"?
"...The sum of the dollar figures for just the 3 horses quoted above is $1,729,969.   McPeek is a horse training not a horse ownership entity, but is clearly rubbing elbows with big money and is a successful enterprise.   How does all this relate to immigration?   Well, McPeek, like all employers, is supposed to have a complete set of I-9 forms for its employees; it is on this form that the worker verifies to the employer that he or she is in the country legally.   Although Immigration and Customs Enforcement [US ICE] found no illegal aliens on the McPeek pay-roll, it did find that the firm had failed to handle the I-9s in a legal manner on 99 occasions.   In 58 cases, it had no I-9s at all in its files.   US ICE, using a complex formula, decided to fine the stables $64,795.50.   McPeek, while not denying the charges, then exercised its right to appeal the size of the fine to the obscure Justice Department [DoJ] entity that handles these things, the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer, in the Executive Office for Immigration Review.   The CAHO, as it does too often, then reduced the fine to $35,900, saying that this is a 'small business', and the size of the fine would be damaging to the stables [would that argument work with the hateful IRS?].   It also reported that McPeek had a gross income of $5,873,408 in 2013 and 'ordinary business income' of $248,383.   McPeek is an S corporation and the 'ordinary business income' is presumably defined by that business-friendly law..."

USA is already being ruled by sharia law -- I stand with Pamela Geller
"In the wake of the Garland, Texas jihadi attack one thing has become perfectly clear -- America, and especially its establishment media -- is already being ruled by Muslim Sharia law and its prohibition against criticizing Islam and depicting or criticizing its prophet Mohammed.   Consider that in the aftermath of the Garland, Texas attack, and a subsequent 'fatwa' or Muslim religious order pronouncing a death sentence against Pamela Geller, an organizer of the Garland event, America's major media have spent the past week trying to establish moral equivalence between telling the truth about Islam, and its political ideology Islamism, and so-called 'hate speech'.   'Hate speech' is an extra-constitutional term that has been invented by the Left to silence anyone who defends Western Judeo-Christian values and culture and it has been used in the past to try to silence supporters of traditional marriage.   One of the chief enforcers of the Left's 'hate speech' system of censorship is the Southern Poverty Law Center or SPLC.   The problem for the Left is, in our view the SPLC is, by its own definition, a 'hate group', and as our friend Rick Manning pointed out in an article for netrightdaily.com, it has been directly tied by federal authorities to the terrorist act committed by Floyd Lee Corkins ii, who attacked the Family Research Council because the SPLC listed that group as a 'hate group' due to their traditional views on marriage and family.   But the SPLC's terrorist connection did not stop CNN and other networks, and the New York Times, and various other Left-leaning establishment media outlets, such as Salon, from devoting hours of air-time and oceans of ink and pixels to the SPLC's assessment that Pamela Geller and her organization, American Freedom Defense Initiative, are engaged in 'hate speech' that should be prohibited, not in protected political discourse, when they tell the truth about Islamism or publish cartoons critical of Islam and its Sharia law system.   Fortunately, the First Amendment does not give self-appointed censors, such as the SPLC and CNN's Chris Cuomo, the power to decided such matters.   But to borrow a phrase from our friend Diana West (author of the must read books, _American Betrayal_ and _The Death of the Grown-Up_) 'Now for the reality check.'   'When a group of people peacefully gathering for an afternoon to discuss or protest or otherwise exercise their lawful rights to free speech regarding Islam and its noxious prophet require thousands of dollars worth of security to protect their lives from jihad killers (and thank goodness, otherwise the slaughter would likely have far exceeded the death toll of the Charlie Hebdo/Jewish market attacks), freedom, in the Western sense of the word, no longer exists.   [The] public square is a war zone.', says West.   To Diana West and to us, that means that 'the liberty that is (was) the foundation of our republic is not threatened, but rather has already been engulfed by the advance of Islam, its law, its culture, into our society.   (Airport security is another tip-off.)   Here -- not in the Middle East, not in the Turkish, Pakistani and other Islamic sectors of the EU -- it is now accepted that silence buys safety, that submission to sharia is the norm.   By this process, Dar al Harb (House of War) becomes Dar al Islam (House of Islam/Submission), and without a fight.'...   West says this is a low-ebb marker reflecting the extent to which their fellow-citizens in media and politics prefer to embrace "dhimmitude" (non-Muslim compliance with Sharia) rather than support the defenders of their own God-given liberties.   As I see it, Islam, and its bizarre medieval Sharia practices, such as sentencing homosexuals to death by slow hanging (Iran) or throwing them from roof tops (the Islamic State) and killing women who 'dishonor' their families (the United States and Worldwide) cannot withstand scrutiny according to the western philosophical principles upon which our culture is based and are inimical to liberty under the Constitution of the United States.   To say that expressing that analysis is 'hate speech' is likewise inimical to the Constitution and reflective of the weird cultural self-loathing that is the stock and trade of the kind of far-Left 'hate America' crowd that just can't seem to grasp that two of their most sacred secular tenets, feminism and legal protection for homosexuality, are among the most intense conflicts between Islam and their post-modern secularism.   Your God-given rights to freedom of religion, freedom of thought, freedom of speech and freedom of conscience are under grave threat, not just from Islamists seeking to impose their culture and way of life on you, but from the cowardice of America's elite.   Only the vigilance of America's country class can prevent the further advance of Sharia compliance in America..."

"Alexander chairs the Senate Education committee and talked about a bipartisan effort by 4 members of the committee -- senators Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Richard Burr (R-NC), and Alexander 'to rein in these regulations and identify the problems and see if we can get rid of them or simplify them'.   The senators 'asked a group of distinguished educators to examine the federal rules and regulations for colleges and universities' 4 years ago, Alexander said."
Knowing how these things work, they'll come up with a list of 100 regulations they want to terminate (out of hundreds of thousands which should be eradicated).   When all is done, they will have eliminated 2 good regulations, 3 bad ones, and by then 1K regulations will have been added.

USA's founders never meant for federal judges to decide issues like same-sex "marriage"
"Specifically, the Founders, as can be read in James Madison, _Notes of Debates In the Federal Convention of 1787 Reported by James Madison_, expressed concerns that the federal judges might become like 'the justiciary of Aragon' who, by striking down laws and imposing their own policy preferences upon the people, 'became by degrees, the law-maker'.   The history of the founding of the Constitution clearly shows that both Federalist and Anti-Federalists believed that the exercise of judicial authority to create new legal policies in derogation of long-established institutions and precedents, and contrary to the due process of the political branches, was illegitimate and improper.   Interestingly, most of the discussion in the Constitutional Convention came in discussions of a proposal to create a 'Council of Revision' including federal judges and executive and legislative representatives.   James Madison and his close ally, James Wilson, thrice proposed a Council of Revision with elected and judicial representatives to give judges power to help enact laws and to protect their position in the government.   The proposal of a Council of Revision was rejected every time..."

"A federal appeals court wants a second look at the NSA's massive data mining campaign on typical Americans who have no ties to terrorism.   On Thursday the 2nd Court of Appeals in Manhattan revived a challenge to a controversial National Security Agency program that sweeps up phone records on millions of Americans, saying the program was not authorized by congress.   Reuters reported that the court said a lower court judge erred in dismissing a law-suit by the American Civil Liberties Union that challenged the constitutionality of the surveillance on the ground it violated people's privacy...   But now Circuit Judge Gerard Lynch, writing for a unanimous 3-judge appeals court, said congress did not authorize the NSA program under a section of the USA Patriot Act governing how the government may collect information to fight terrorism.   'Such expansive development of government repositories of formerly private records would be an unprecedented contraction of the privacy expectations of all Americans.', Lynch wrote in a 97-page decision..."

"Some 16% of the power in the UK is consumed via the internet already, and the amount is doubling every 4 years. Globally, it is responsible for about two percent of power usage... over the past decade, engineers have kept well ahead of demand, increasing internet speed by 50 times [with few significant improvements in technology]."
D'uh, so encourage more telecomm competition, more electricity generation and distribution and transmission competition, deploy more fiber-optic cables, remove 75% of the ridiculous restrictions on competition and generating and transmitting technology, and let price and demand balance... for a change.

"Spending, meanwhile, was a more modest $317G, leaving the government with a surplus for that one month of $155G -- also a record.   Despite that good month, the government is likely to run a deficit when the entire fiscal year is taken into account...   'Receipts for the first 7 months of fiscal year 2015 totaled $1,892G, CBO estimates -- $155G more than receipts in the same period last year.   That increase is roughly $40G larger than what CBO expected when it published its 2015 March report.', the...agency said in its report.   Both taxes and spending are growing rapidly, at 9% and 7%, respectively.   The CBO said the biggest spending increases are in Medicare, Medicaid and [Socialist Insecurity -- big unconstitutional programs corrupt politicians refuse to eliminate.]'..."

"...it's not the color or class or ethnic identity of Americans that holds all of us together but an idea.   After centuries of colonial rule, that idea crystallized into a single phrase in the Declaration of Independence: '...that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness'.   Each of us in our own, free American way...   No matter what we or our children and grandchildren and their children may look like, it is the American Idea that [we wan to endure].   And continues to attract [reasonable numbers of] new Americans from the rest of the world.   May they keep coming [though not in such vastly excessive numbers], and may the American Idea stay bright, like a sign shining in the middle of a dark night.   One that says: This Way to Freedom."

"Why aren't liberals offering Pamela Geller a federal subsidy?

The would-be terrorists chose poorly: They were cut down by Texas lawmen shortly after wounding a security guard. Let's hop in the WayBack Machine for a moment. In 1986, the National Endowment of Arts paid about $20K for Andreas Serrano's 'P*** Christ'. Serrano peed in a glass, plunked a plastic icon of Jesus on the cross into it and then snapped a picture. I will say the lighting was lovely. But, as strange as it seemed to the 'arts community', some people were offended..."

sergeant-first-class Christopher Speer is dead; Omar Khadr, who killed him in battle 13 years ago, is free

"A Canadian judge ruled this week that Omar Khadr poses no public safety threat.   Tell that to the children of sergeant-first-class Christopher J. Speer and the surviving American soldiers who valiantly fought Khadr on the battlefield.   In 2012, Khadr pleaded guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty and guilty to 5 charges related to the killing of Speer, a 28-year-old medic with the U.S. Special Forces.   This young American hero died in Afghanistan in 2002 during an ambush by al-Qaida operatives.   Just days before he gave his life, Speer had fearlessly walked onto a minefield to rescue 2 wounded Afghan children.   It was Khadr, born and bred an Islamic jihadist by his terrorist father, who lobbed the fatal grenade in the war zone.   Another American soldier, SFC Layne Morris, survived the attack, but was blinded in one eye for life...   The Khadr family is rightfully known as Canada's First Family of Terror.   This so-called 'child soldier' and 'good kid' was a full-blown Muslim soldier of jihad; he trained one-on-one in weaponry, explosives and Jew hatred.   A then-teenage Khadr bragged to a U.S. official 'that the proudest moment of his life was constructing and planting IEDs' to 'kill U.S. forces'..."

V-E day: what if the US soldiers had simply declared victory and gone home?
"In late November of 1941 (before the Pearl Harbor attack) a public opinion survey found that when asked the question 'Which is more important, keeping the US out of war, or defeating Germany?', by a margin of 68% to 32% Americans favored defeating the Nazis over keeping the USA out of war.   Contrast the clarity offered by Roosevelt to the muddled political correctness with which president George W. Bush [Shrub], and especially [president Barack Hussein Obummer], have described our reason for fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and the 'war on terror' in general.   Americans have never heard from their President that we are in a war that was declared on us, and western civilization generally, by Islamists, who may be (temporarily) without a national state, but who are an ideologically coherent and highly motivated political organization.   Americans have never been told by their president that this is a religious war and that our opponents' ultimate goal is the conversion or death of those who do not share their interpretation of Islam -- including other Muslims we might add.   And most importantly, Americans have never heard from their president that we are in a war for the preservation of western civilization with a foe every bit has ruthless and genocidal as Hitler's Nazis...   And most damaging of all, [Obummer] has led Americans to believe that we can unilaterally set a date certain for the withdrawal of American forces from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan and for us the war will be over..."

"senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) dropped some happy-talk to listeners...   'Why don't we bring a few thousand of these displaced persons over here from Kathmandu, and when their city is up and running again, they can go back...?', Schumer wanted to know...   We are of course accepting not dozens, not hundreds, but thousands of 'refugees' monthly, coming in over the legal skyways.   Somalis, Syrians, political prisoners, Sudanese, even Koreans, Pakistanis, and their brethren in long-term distress or familial self-betterment.   Add to this the by-now famously unstoppered avalanche of illegals streaming across our southern borders from some 60 countries, not all of which are by any means friendlies.   To stash these raggedy aliens and undocumenteds away out of raw-nerve territory, foreign affiliate [president Barack Hussein Obummer] has his people salt unsuspecting and largely unprepared towns and metropoli across the continent with these often-penniless, ill-educated, unpolished, unyielding, foot-sore unsophisticates -- whether the recipients are willing or no.   Mr. Schumer: towns in Sweden and Norway, Holland, and neighboring countries have had a bellyful of sustaining this empathy-extensive program to ungrateful, non-assimilating, multiply-wived sharia culture who have ratcheted up the rapes per square inch by several factors.   We are fortunate to have caught, in this regard, Law professor Jan C. Ting.   Temple University Beasley School of Law (and former Assistant Commissioner, Immigration & Naturalization Service, U.S. Department of Justice).   He spoke on 'Examining the Adequacy and Enforcement of our Nation's Laws'...   This country's immigration laws, designed to safeguard the American polity and its citizenry, have been ignored, flouted, and countervailed in the service of the malign [political operatives]...   Ting's suggestion is to reverse the Barackian trend.   Increase the costs of illegal inflow, and lower the benefits.   Conversely, what the current lawless [Obummer regime (and the Shrub and Clinton and GHWBush regims before) has been doing is the opposite]: border rules are being relaxed, border patrols emasculated, while questionable benefits for illegals are being increased...   We cannot bivouac, educate, medicate, and translate for thousands of noncitizens from afar.   We cannot provide incomes for them.   We cannot hire them, at the expense of the ailing economy and our [30M+] unemployed and under-employed citizenry..."

senator Jeff Sessions explains what Marco Rubio doesn't get on trade, immigration; compares gang of 8 push (S744) to Obummer's global trade surrender pact (Trans-Pacific Partnership)
"Remember: to get elected Rubio ran against amnesty, but once elected, to get billions of dollars from the donors and crowned media darling, he is running on the most pro-amnesty mass immigration ideology ever conceived...   Sessions: 'Laura, it's just been a mainstream thought of Republicans that trade is good (as you said good trade is good), but what the American people are sensing and a large number are feeling in their pocket book is that these trade issues or deals over the years might not have been so good...   did a poll...   [Does] Free Trade agreement help other countries or the United States. 70%-30% [said these agreements have helped] other countries.   And the other poll was 3 to 1 over the last 20 years think trade has improved wages for Americans or reduced wages 3-1...   So I think the people are sensing these deals aren't working for them and that their politicians are not challenging the claims from the Masters of the Universe who promote these agreements.   I think it's time to slow down and be sure to make sure what we are doing is helping the Americans and not some capital mover on Wall Street.'   Ingraham: It turns out that only a few people have really read any parts of this trans-pacific partnership...   Sessions: '...they vote on the talking points, don't read the bill...   I think it's critically important that we examine that document.   I think there are questions that are valid in the details of it.   [We should] ask ourselves, is our trade deficit, are these agreements improving or making it worse?...   For the last 3 or 4 years, I've been saying we need to listen to the American people and there are 2 areas Republicans need to reevaluate on the merits -- not just on polling data, but the polling data is strong -- and that is on immigration and trade.   The American people believe that in both instances, nobody is interested in their problems and I think there's too much truth to that and we ought to respond to it and Cameron has done that and led himself to victory.'"

Harvard + Dartmouth: Socialist Insecurity Abomination's actuarial projections over the last 15 years were off by $1T
"According to the report, the [SIA's] actuarial projections in the 1980s under-estimated revenues and over-estimated costs by $27G; in the 1990s, that figure was $200G.   Now, in the first ten years after 2000, the forecasts over-estimated revenue and under-estimated costs to the total of $1T.   The [Socialist Insecurity] and Medicare Trustees' 2014 report projected that its trust funds would be non-existent by 2033 unless the trajectory of the program was changed, but King and Dartmouth professor Samir Soneji, his co-author in the new report, had posited in 2012 that the trust funds would be gone by 2031, as the SSA had underestimated how long Americans would live...   'After 2000, forecast errors became increasingly biased, and in the same direction.   Trustees Reports after 2000 all overestimated the assets in the program and overestimated solvency of the Trust Funds.'...   Laurence Kotlikoff, a Boston University professor of economics, suggests that the [SIA] stop estimating its unfunded obligations for only the next 75 years and instead use the 'infinite horizon'.   That would alter [SIA's] projected unfunded liabilities from the $10.6T estimated by 2088 to $24.9T.   Kotlikoff charged, 'We have a situation that is like Enron accounting.   And the public doesn't want to hear about it.'"

Hood [terrorist] Nidal Hasan to consider; other former and reservist military members have also been charged with terrorism.   Apparently not so.   Surprisingly, Arizona's Dem/Red/leftist representative Ruben Gallego introduced into the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would express the 'sense of the House' that the defense secretary should consider authorizing recipients of the [Obummer regime's unconstitutional and illegal] 'executive action' immigration program to enlist in the military.   Dem/Red/leftist representative Marc Veasey of Texas took a different tack to achieve the same goal.   Instead, he embedded language in the text directing the secretary of defense to study permitting such enlistments in the language of the report that preceded the budget measure..."

bad advice: "stay quiet and you'll be okay"
"in Alberta, the Tories were wiped out; in Scotland, the Labour Party was slaughtered; in England, the Liberals were crushed...   a rough couple of weeks for free speech, culminating in the attempted mass murder in Garland, Texas.   That's what it was, by the way -- although you might have difficulty telling that from the news coverage...   The media 'narrative' of the last week is that some Zionist temptress was walking down the street in Garland in a too short skirt and hoisted it to reveal her Mohammed thong -- oops, my apologies, her prophet Mohammed thong (PBUH) -- and thereby inflamed 2 otherwise law-abiding ISIS supporters peacefully minding their own business.   It'll be a long time before you see 'Washington Post Offers No Apology for Attacking Target of Thwarted Attack' or 'AP Says It Has No Regrets After Blaming The Victim'.   The respectable class in the American media share the same goal as the Islamic fanatics: They want to silence Pam Geller...   the 'narrative' wouldn't change very much if the jihad boys had got luckier and Pam, Geert Wilders, Robert Spencer and a dozen others were all piled up in the Garland morgue.   If the American press were not so lazy and parochial, they would understand that this was the third Islamic attack on free speech this year -- first, Charlie Hebdo in Paris; second, the Lars Vilks event in Copenhagen; and now Texas..."

"At 22, the formerly cool kids used drugs and drank far more heavily than less popular students; their romantic relationships failed more often; and they were more likely to have a criminal record...   The constant struggle to be older, to seem wiser, to be taken more seriously -- these factors all compel a select group of (usually good-looking) teens and pre-teens to seek out behaviors that, to their minds, are by nature 'mature'.   It's only once they reach their true adult years that they find out, if they ever do, that traits like responsibility, honesty, humility, and compassion are signs of maturity."

more Americans should know more history, math, science, ethics...
"I have my own suggestion for improving voter turnout: Knowledge is power.   If American schools did a better job teaching about history and government, students most likely would grow up to be more engaged adults.   Alas, the latest testing by the National Assessment of Educational Progress -- aka NAEP or The Nation's Report Card -- found that just 18% of eighth-graders scored 'proficient' or better in history; 23% scored proficient or above in civics.   In short, close to 4 in 5 middle schoolers don't know much about history, while 3 in 4 don't know much about their government.   The good news is that those scores didn't drop since NAEP tested those subjects in 2010.   The bad news is that NAEP only tested 8th-graders this go-round.   In 2010, NAEP also tested 4th-graders and high-school seniors; only 12% of seniors scored proficient or better in history.   Roger Beckett, executive director of the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University in Ohio, sees the decision not to test all 3 grades as a bad sign.   The new education fad is STEM -- science, technology, engineering and math -- which means, Beckett noted, 'we don't talk about the crisis in history and civic amnesia'."

economic mobility, equality/inequality, efficiency, productivity
"From 1950 to 1973, the U.S. economy expanded at an average annual rate of 4%.   This would have been Okun's reference point.   For the coming decade (2015-2025), the Congressional Budget Office [CBO] projects growth at only 2.1% annually.   About half the decline reflects slower labor force growth.   We can't do much about this.   Baby boomers are retiring; the influx of new workers only slightly exceeds this large work-force exodus.   But the other cause of slower economic growth is lower productivity gains that come from new technologies, better business practices and more skilled workers...   During the 1950-1973 period, labor productivity grew an average of 2.4% annually; the CBO's projection for the next decade is 1.6% annually -- and even this exceeds recent experience, which is less than 1% a year.   These numbers describe an economy that, despite highly visible digital advances, strains to innovate and to raise living standards...   From 1979 to 2011, calculates the CBO, the after-tax incomes of the poorest fifth rose nearly 50%.   But it is true that the 'gaps' have widened dramatically.   Over the same period, the after-tax incomes of the top 1% jumped 200%.   (All figures are adjusted for inflation.)...   We do not know enough to manipulate economic growth, productivity and income distribution...   The fabulous economic growth of the 1950s and 1960s may have reflected technologies created in the 1930s and 1940s (synthetic fibers, television, antibiotics), plus the advantage that the economies of our main global competitors had been nearly destroyed..."
Just as Hayek pointed out, no government or other small group of people can know enough to shape and control an economy for higher standards of living.   But millions of individuals, interacting freely, openly, honestly, can.

amid Chinese influx, Brandeis considers its Jewish identity
"Founded in 1948 as a top-tier alternative for Jews who faced quota restrictions at the nation's Ivy League universities, Brandeis has undergone a profound demographic shift in recent years.   Last year, about a quarter of incoming freshman were international -- with the largest number of them from [Red China] (about 10% of all freshmen).   After China, the top countries of origin for foreign students at Brandeis are Korea, India, Canada and Israel, in that order.   Jews are now thought to make up a minority of Brandeis' 3,700 under-graduates -- 40%-45% according to many faculty and student estimates.   That figure was said to be upwards of 60% just 2 decades ago.   University officials do not have precise numbers because Brandeis does not ask students about religious background.   Brandeis is not alone in seeing an influx of students from [Red China].   During the 2013-2014 academic year, there were 274,439 Chinese students at American universities, including about 110K under-graduates...   The current high number of inter-national students -- the figure has risen 30% over the past 5 years and now comprises 18% of under-graduates -- is something of a fluke that is in the process of being corrected, said Andrew Flagel, the senior vice president for students and enrollment.   'There was an unusual pattern in the last 2 years of students accepting our offers.', Flagel said.   'The precipitous increase of international acceptance has caused us to dramatically decrease the number of offers we've put out for international students this year.'   He noted that 'a plurality of our students are Jewish', and the number of Jews 'appears to be well over 50% of our U.S. students'."

contesting Obummer's immigration over-reach: friends of the court, friends of the US constitution
"A 'friend of the court' [amicus curiae] brief has just been filed with the federal Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans in the case filed against the federal government by over half of the states, which are seeking to have ruled illegal and unconstitutional major portions of the [Obummer regime's] 'executive action' programs on immigration.   The brief supporting the plaintiff states (pdf) was filed by the Committee to Defend the Separation of Powers of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).   According to the ACLJ [in 'fighting on behalf of congress against Obummer's exeutive over-reach], it was filed on behalf of nearly 220K individuals who have expressed their concern over this White House's trampling on the separation of powers established by our constitution.   The brief stands in sharp contrast to the opinion issued by the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel justifying the 'executive actions' just prior to their promulgation.   That opinion was a marvel of logical acrobatics in its attempt to provide a basis for what OLC lawyers clearly understood was the desired path their political masters wished to tread down.   It is my guess that, in the fullness of time, the OLC will arrive at a point of deep embarrassment, both for having shown itself so malleable as to be willing to bend law and logic to arrive at an impossible result and for having issued a document so poorly reasoned that even first-year law students could pick out its flaws.   The ACLJ's brief is succinct, well reasoned, and tightly argued.   I don't know who most of those nearly 220K individuals are that ACLJ speaks for, but I applaud them.   I do know, however, that 113 of them are sitting senators and representatives of the present Congress.   Pretty much all of them are Republicans.   Undoubtedly, party politics has prevented many a Democrat from speaking out on the executive actions when in their heart of hearts they may have serious concerns about executive overreach, but not all Democrats have been so silent.   For instance, to his credit, David Martin (law professor at the University of Virginia, former general counsel of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and most recently the deputy general counsel of the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] under [the Obummer regime]) felt constrained in November of last year to speak out in a blog entitled 'Concerns about a Troubling Presidential Precedent and OLC's Review of Its Validity'."

"In several articles post over the past few months we've told readers of CHQ about the Muslim colonization of America and about the national suicide built into the George W. Bush [Shrub] and [Barack Hussein Obummer] immigration policies that have brought over 2.3M Muslim immigrants to America since 2001/09/11...   Now this issue has finally gotten the attention of the chairman of the House Judiciary sub-committee on Immigration and Border Security, representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, who wrote the Department of State demanding that it halt the resettlement of refugees in the city of Spartanburg in his district.   In his letter dated 2015 April 15, congressman Gowdy objected to the 'lack of notice, information and consultation afforded to me and my constituents' and posed 17 pointed questions, including (as paraphrased by Politico): Why and when was his district approved [as a refugee resettlement site]?   What steps were taken to notify local government officials and whether they approved the plan, and where funds for the office and the refugees will come from?   When are the first refugees expected to arrive?   What benefits are they entitled to?   How many will be resettled?   What is their country of origin?   Who is responsible for housing, employment and education services for them?   Representative Gowdy was particularly concerned about the security implications of this immigrant migration.   He asked: 'Do any of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area have criminal convictions?   If so, for what crimes has each been convicted?'   And 'Please explain the [backgroun-investigation] process performed on refugees scheduled to be resettled in Spartanburg.'   We can answer those questions for representative Gowdy: With [Barack Hussein Obummer] in the White House there isn't any real vetting of the background of these alleged 'refugees'.   The necessity for such congressional oversight has been underscored by an important new monograph by Ann Corcoran entitled, Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America (pdf), which released at the end of April as part of the Center for Security Policy's 'Civilization Jihad Reader Series'.   Ms. Corcoran documents that Muslim immigration as a form of jihad via colonization called hijra dates back to the time of Mohammed.   In fact, she quotes hadith sources that assert that migration is a religious obligation for Muslims to spread Islam and build the Islamic state.   She also cites long-time Libyan leader, Muammar Qaddafi [and, for that matter Yasser Arafat], who once said that Europe would be conquered without guns and swords, but with Muslim migrants over-running the continent.   Lest the images of thousands of Muslim 'refugees' crossing the Mediterranean Sea and throwing Christians overboard isn't enough to convince you, a powerful new documentary by Martin Mawyer called 'Europe's Last Stand; America's Final Warning' illustrates just how accurate this prediction is proving to be..."

tackle immigration/emigration's root causes
"Re: Migrant Surges Stretch Resources.   The migrant surges have only just begun, thanks, in part, to the father and son Bush [GHWBush & Shrub] presidencies.   Had they not taken out Saddam Hussein et al. in response to the 2001/09/11 attacks, the crisis now unfolding in the Mediterranean as thousands of Muslims flee the barbaric Islamic State hordes would not now be featuring on our nightly news broadcasts.   Britain's Royal Navy may conduct operations against the smuggling gangs by attempting to destroy their boats to curtail this migrant onslaught, but the root causes lie in the poverty and strife in the Third World countries they are fleeing.   No amount of resettlement in Western countries will assuage this humanitarian onslaught.   Much as I feel for those caught up in this unfolding crisis, I do not believe Britain should be expected to take in tens of thousands of Muslim migrants in a plan to redistribute them throughout Europe.   Nor should any other European country.   Detain and care for them; eliminate the smugglers and their bases of operation, then return these refugees whence they came and let their governments see to their needs as best they can."

Rand Paul on the "net neutrality" deception

"Paul has introduced a resolution urging the senate to repeal the Federal Communications Commission's recent net neutrality order.   Don't think that Paul was afraid to challenge his new base.   Marinucci cited a University of Delaware poll that found 81% of Americans -- and 85% of Republicans -- support net neutrality.   Yet in the belly of the beast, Paul stuck to his free market principles.   Paul, 52, responded, 'I would say it depends on how you ask the question.   So let's redo the poll in an imaginary way.   Let's ask the question: How many of you believe the Internet should be regulated?'   Paul chalked up public support for net neutrality to savvy marketing.   'When you say something like 'neutrality,' the name is wonderful: net neutrality.   Who can be against net neutrality?   Who couldn't be against the Man?   Who wouldn't want to stop the Man from charging me too much?   Who's not against the phone company, the telephone company, the television company?   We're all against the Man at some level.'   Folks may naturally protest the idea of Internet providers charging more for faster service, but, Paul said, 'is it really terrible for FedEx to charge more to deliver a letter in 1 day than in 5 days?'   The marketplace is all about charging more for speed and location.   If you believe in the market-place, you don't want the government setting prices.   The senator voiced a pure libertarian position...   Paul's larger plan for increasing broadband competition..."

"...If you like arrogant, condescending, rude, insolent and patronizing Beltway journalism, you may appreciate Halperin's performance.   If you are a person of ordinary sensibilities, however, and not so intoxicated with the leftist worldview that you are incapable of dispassionately assessing the segment, you will have a different reaction.   What first struck me about the interview was not so much the objectively asinine questions Halperin asked but his obvious motive and attitude in asking them...   Cruz showed extraordinary class and restraint in fielding these boorish questions, but what was even more gratifying to me was that in his answers, he implicitly, though emphatically, rejected Halperin's assumptions, making clear that though he is proud of his ethnicity and considers his Cuban-American father his hero, he is a full-blooded American, proud of the Constitution and the liberties it protects...

"Retirees are now receiving more benefits than they paid into the system.   The life-time [Socialist Insecurity] and Medicare payments made to a single earner-couple retiring in 2015 will be almost $1M -- over $500K more than the taxes they paid into the trust funds...   America had the highest high school graduation rate in the world immediately after World War II, but we have now dropped to 22nd out of 27 countries.   U.S. students' math scores are now lower than students in VietNam, [Red China], and most of Europe.   But it's not as if we're short-changing students, as K-12 spending has risen to $13K per student per year—an inflation-adjusted increase of 239% since the 1950s...   Four-year completion rates at colleges remain low and student loans are indebting millennials.   Total student loan debt ballooned from $250M in 2003 to $1.2T in 2014...   for every dollar received by a student in tax-based aid, scholarships at the university were reduced a dollar.   As college tuition increased by 1,180% since 1978, the burden has been shifted from universities to the [tax-victim]...   Questionable tuition-funded expenditures include millions spent on college presidents' salaries, nearly $500M spent on just 40 collegiate athletic programs, and decadent amenities—including a lazy river at Boston University (tuition and expenses in 2015: $62,956).   While universities have to attract and retain students, they leave with an average an average of $25K in debt.   Optimistic entrepreneurs and recent graduates looking forward to paying off their debt face a foreboding job market and an artificially restricted work-force...   Occupational licensing, or government approval to work in certain professions, safeguards established industries and older workers by preventing would-be entrepreneurs from entering the market.   Certification and licensing regulations to work certain jobs were rare up until the mid-20th century.   While in the 1950s less than 5% of all jobs required certification, licensing requirements have now expanded to cover 1 in 3 workers and include occupations unrelated to the health of the general public -- florists, cosmetologists, and yoga instructors now all require certification to operate a business in some states...   75M millennials are negatively affected by these policies..."

how to build policies that favor urban manufacturing
"Manufacturing has reinvented itself.   A couple of decades ago, as North American cities began to decline after losing their manufacturing to offshoring, the mantra among urban planners and certain economic developers became that we needed to stop 'chasing smoke-stacks' and look to new markets.   But the pendulum has swung.   Manufacturing is reshoring -- for quality control, market proximity, skilled labour and cost savings -- and it's had a make-over...   today's factories are more likely to be clean, high-tech spaces filled with highly educated engineers and trades people.   The Brookings Institute reports factory work, especially in advanced manufacturing, has higher technical requirements and higher pay, rising 5 times [as fast as] the national average...   MIT declares that innovation will flourish in advanced manufacturing hubs because innovation depends on the production of goods...   Don't make the zoning codes too specific (new industries rise quickly, e.g., 3D printing); Help businesses navigate regulatory processes (simplify and support, to reduce hurdles); Offer an expedited permit process (faster permitting can keep businesses from leaving)..."

beware: the electronic medical/health records debacle will continue to get worse
"In a survey conducted by the Deloitte consulting group, three of four doctors said EHRs are not worth the cost.   The influential RAND Corporation, which had long endorsed EHRs, reported in 2013 that they neither saved money nor improved care.   Doctors and hospitals were induced to install EHRs with $30G in federal money, which started flowing in 2011.   Fortunately, this money has almost run out; when it's gone, the federal government will be less able to bend physicians to its will...   But last year [Obummer regime] disclosed that only 3,152 eligible professionals (doctors, dentists, and so forth) of almost 500K registered had attested to Stage 2 to get their bounties.   This is surprising because, although the government is almost out of EHR subsidy money, it has the power to fine doctors for not using electronic records.   This year the administration will begin doing so.   Last December, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced it would dock 1% of Medicare payments from 257K physicians’ payments for not using EHRs 'meaningfully' and another 1% from 28K providers for not prescribing electronically.   Despite these punitive measures, doctors continue to resist EHRs.   The American Medical Association (AMA), which endorsed the program in 2009, declared it was 'appalled' that over half of eligible professionals will be fined for failing to meet meaningful-use targets in 2015..."

Sili Valley executives to US citizen STEM professionals: drop dead
"Silicon Valley oligarchs come to the immigration debate with considerable advantages.   Aside from the obvious giant bags of money, there's the perception (often correct) that they're wizards responsible for breathtaking innovation and economic growth.   So when they say they need ever-greater numbers of indentured code-jockeys from abroad because there aren't not enough Americans available, they're taken seriously (even though the real motivation is simply cheap labor).   This gullibility is all the more prevalent in congress...   But the Silicon Valley oligarchs also have a disadvantage: the inability to hide their contempt for American workers...   No one 'deserves' his job, of course.   And it's true that, as Moe Greene noted, if you've got a business to run you've got to 'kick asses sometimes to make it run right'.   But there was no claim that the hundreds of American workers replaced en masse by H-1Bs (whom they had to train at the risk of losing their severance) at SCE or Disney or elsewhere were not doing their jobs, [were not able to do their jobs well,] or weren't 'qualified' or were being 'carried'.   Rather, they were replaced with less-skilled -- but much cheaper -- foreign workers, using a program that's supposed to be only for the 'best and brightest'.   Dalgaard was blaming the victims of a [crony-socialist] immigration scheme for their own plight.   Nor is this simply a matter of economics.   The culture of Silicon Valley is anchored on the left, as we've seen starkly over the past year on gay marriage.   Given that a visceral aversion to America and ordinary Americans is one of the modern Left's most basic impulses, it's no surprise that this aversion is broadly shared by people in the tech industry.   Such preference for foreigners over Americans isn't confined to skilled immigrants, as Jeb Bush's Ameriphobia attests.   But American software engineers replaced by foreigners are more likely to have the verbal and other skills required to get their complaints heard than do, say, American construction workers in the same situation.   And that may be why the congressional gullibility which has served Big Tech so well for so long is ebbing.   Southern California Edison's purge of American workers, for instance, continues to resonate, with a bipartisan group of senators demanding an inquiry.   Corporate cronyism has been getting the attention it deserves in the financial sector, the 'green' industry, and the Ex-Im Bank.   This is finally beginning to happen to the tech industry too, as the insulation and even deference it enjoyed in its pursuit of cronyist immigration policies begins to wane.   It's about time."

ebola epidemic is ramping down in Liberia, but USCIS has not noticed
"...On the afternoon of May 12, USCIS held a teleconference promoting Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for aliens -- legal or illegal -- who were in the United States on 2014 November 21, and were from one of the 3 Ebola-impacted West African nations.   The deadline for applications is May 20.   TPS status is created by the government when it decides that a disaster of some kind has struck a nation or nations, and everyone from the area in the United States at the time becomes eligible for an allegedly temporary legal status.   The problem, of course, is that TPS statuses for aliens from designated nations never expire.   The Department of Homeland Security renews the TPS status every 18 months, or as Mark Krikorian put it some years ago, 'temporary status means never having to go home'.   I joined the teleconference hoping to find out how many aliens from the 3 nations had signed up for TPS; my sense is that internal enforcement of the immigration law in the United States is so lax means that relatively few people did so.   (It costs $465.)   The agency would not answer my question on numbers, but gave detailed answers to questions about who is eligible for the program, how to apply, and how to obtain a fee waiver..."

disobey!
Town Hall
"it's time for civil disobedience.   Government has become so oppressive, constantly restricting us with new regulations, that our only hope is for some of us to refuse to cooperate...   Murray argues that citizens and companies should start openly defying all but the most useful regulations, essentially ones that forbid assault, theft and fraud.   He writes, 'America is no longer the land of the free.   We are still free in the sense that Norwegians, Germans and Italians are free.   But that's not what Americans used to mean by freedom.'...   government today tries to do much more.   While we try to invent new things, government constantly seeks new ways to control us.   The number of federal crimes on the books is now 50% larger than back in 1980 -- a time when many people mistakenly thought the U.S.A. would cut the size of government.   Murray says, correctly, that no ordinary human being -- not even a team of lawyers -- can ever be sure how to obey the 810 pages of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, 1,024 pages of [ObummerDoesn'tCare] or 2,300 pages of Dodd-Frank.   What if we all stopped trying?..."

why some young people want nothing to do with politics
"There are 519,682 elected officials in the U.S.A., the authors note, the vast majority of whom hold local jobs; they are mayors, city councilors, school board members, coroners or recorders of deeds.   It is essential to the effective functioning of government -- without which the nation cannot succeed -- that [honest] competent people are willing to run for these offices.   Yet, in a novel survey that Lawless and Fox conducted of more than 2K high school students and more than 2K college students, young people expressed a broad aversion to serving in public office.   Almost 90% said they wouldn't even consider it.   The students said they tend to avoid discussing political issues altogether..."

crony socialism in the "short sale" market
"There are the obvious examples, such as far-left environmentalist billionaire Tom Steyer, who has received more than a billion dollars for a light rail project, which personally helped his hedge fund.   However, beyond pay-to-play, there is a more advance version of financial corruption that can happen in the 'short sale' market.   If you're not familiar with that term, is a strategy used by hedge funds and other large investment banks to study investment opportunities and profit from businesses which are likely to drop in value.   The investor borrows money to make that bet, then makes money when paying off the loan is less than the return.   It may sound like a wild form of gambling, but it is legitimate.   After all, capital follows the path of least resistance and great opportunity.   And capital needs that information about investment opportunities, while these tactics by hedge funds can keep stocks from becoming overvalued.   However, no market-place is perfect, and there is always the opportunity for fraud.   Instead of allowing the markets to run their course and using data to study market trends, a handful of elite investors use their political connections to use the media and politicians to drive a stock price down..."

the forgotten realities of World War 2
Washington DC Times
"More than 60M people perished -- some 50M of them in Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union and China.   The pre-war Soviet state in the 1920s and 1930s had killed perhaps 20 million of its own citizens in purges, exiles, collectivizations, forced famines and show trials.   Then it lost an estimated 25M soldiers and civilians to the German army on the Eastern Front.   Hitler's Germany by late 1942 had occupied almost 1M square miles of Soviet ground.   The Soviet Red Army would eventually be responsible for three-quarters of Germany's WWII casualties, but at a cost of approximately 9M dead of its own combatants.   Nevertheless, the Allied defeat of the Axis powers is more complicated...   When World War II started, America was [non-interventionist] and the Soviet Union collaborationist...   Once the United States entered the war after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Axis cause was largely doomed.   America mobilized 12m soldiers -- about the same number as did the Soviet Union, despite having a population of about 40m fewer citizens.   American war production proved astonishing.   At the huge Willow Run plant in Michigan, the greatest generation turned out a B-24 heavy bomber every hour.   A single shipyard could mass-produce an ocean-going Liberty merchant ship from scratch in a week.   In just 4 years, the United States would produce more airplanes than all of the major war powers combined.   Germany, Japan, Italy and the Soviet Union could not build a successful four-engine heavy bomber.   America, in contrast, produced 34K excellent B-17s, B-24s and B-29s.   By 1944, the new U.S. Navy had become the largest in the history of civilization at more than 6K ships.   Its B-29 heavy bomber program and Manhattan Project efforts together cost more $50G in today's dollars...   At the same time, the U.S.A. supplied the Soviet Union with 400K heavy trucks, 2K locomotives, 11K rail-cars and billions of dollars worth of planes, tanks, food, clothing and strategic resources.   By 1943-1944, the U.S.A. also supplied about 20% of Britain's munitions..."

WW2
"They concern the share of Americans who served in the military.   That was, [the census bureau] reports, 16.1M men.   Of these, 6.1M volunteered and 10M were drafted.   According to Census, 406K were killed and 671K others were wounded -- a casualty rate of about 1 in 15 for all services.   (These figures cover only men.   Census also reported separately that 342K women served in World War II; 217 died.)   At the war's end, 12.1M Americans were still in uniform.   This compared with 3.1M in 1970 at the height of the war in Vietnam and 1.5M in 2011.   In 1950, 28% of all men 18 and over were World War II veterans; today, the active-duty military (men and women) are less than 1% of the 18-and-older population, says Census.   What these figures show is that, compared with World War II, we fight our wars today from our hip pocket.   The Census numbers actually under-state the war-time mobilization.   Looking at just men ages 15 to 39 in 1940 (as I have), from 50% to 60% served in World War II.   Presumably, the others were unfit, too old or exempted from service [or already at work in industries to arm and supply troops]."

Illinois state senator Barack Hussein Obummer's destructive "urban agenda"
World Net Daily
"Bill Ayers, the former fugitive and still unrepentant domestic terrorist/member of the Weather Underground turned 'educator', founded the Chicago Annenberg Challenge with a $50M grant from the Annenberg Foundation.   Just 3 years out of law school, [Obummer] chaired the newly formed CAC board from 1995 to 1999, spending millions to 'improve' Chicago public schools.   In all, CAC distributed more than $100M from 1995 to 2001 to improve Chicago schools.   Rather than fund the schools directly, Ayers required schools to work with 'external partners', who focused on political radicalism.   'External partners' that focused on math or science were turned down.   The CAC instead funded groups like the far-left Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now or the South Shore African Village Collaborative and the Dual Language Exchange, which focused on Afrocentricity, anti-capitalism, political consciousness and bilingualism.   After 6 years, what did the CAC achieve?   By its own assessment, the money was wasted.   Their report said: 'There were no statistically significant differences in student achievement between Annenberg schools and demographically similar non-Annenberg schools.   This indicates that there was no Annenberg effect on achievement.'...   Valerie Jarrett served as the chief executive of Habitat Company, which managed a project called Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 to 2008...   By 2006, after repeated warnings, federal inspectors found conditions so bad and repairs so minimal they moved to seize Grove Parc, later demolishing it...   Similarly, Rezmar Corp., cofounded in 1989 by Tony Rezko, used more than $87M in government grants, loan and credits over the next nine years to renovate and manage 1K apartments in 30 Chicago buildings -- 11 of them in [Obummer's] district.   Residents complained of rats, insect infestations, no heat, leaking windows and piles of trash.   By the time [Obummer] entered the state senate, buildings were deteriorating and Chicago was suing Rezmar for various violations..."

Ted Cruz battles "trade promotion authority's" sneaky immigration changes
"Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has filed an amendment to the Trade Act of 2015 to lock in assurances that this legislation cannot be used to change federal immigration law.   'The [Obummer regime] has repeatedly assured Members of Congress that there is nothing in the Trade Act of 2015 that would allow the President to unilaterally make changes to federal immigration laws.', said senator Cruz.   'I agree, and we should put it in writing and make it binding law.   I am a strong supporter of free trade, but I cannot support legislation that would allow the President to once again circumvent Congress to enact his own immigration laws.   Since the Obama Administration has emphatically argued that TPA will not affect immigration, it should support this amendment, which makes that promise explicit.'   The amendment states that nothing in the Trade Act of 2015 or in any trade agreement subject to the Act 'shall alter or affect any law, regulation, or policy relating to immigration'."

bankruptcy court rulings uncover historic government securities fraud
"Since 2009 [Barack Hussein Obummer] and his Party have created $8T of public debt.   What most Americans and investors are not aware of is that another $8T of government debt was created over the past forty years, mostly by Democrats.   This is the accumulated unfunded public pension and municipal bond debt.   And unlike the national debt, which is easily found and exists on government books, this second amount of debt is not widely known.   What is more unsettling is how this debt was created and how it impacts all Americans.   Its origin has been revealed through the bankruptcy court hearings of Stockton, California; Detroit, Michigan; and the financial situation of Chicago, IL.   As public spending increased and public sector pension debt mushroomed, these and other city governments were unable to keep up with public pension plan expenses.   One fix they attempted was to borrow money from investors by issuing municipal bonds.   But these bonds only created more debt.   Say a muni bond is purchased for $10K.   The buyer of the bond usually receives an interest payment from the issuer twice a year.   If the bond is a 10-year bond, then after 10 years the buyer gets paid back the entire $10K price at termination.   The interest payments made 20 times during those 10 years are the interest income.   But Chicago, Stockton and Detroit came to the point where they could no longer afford to make those biannual bond and termination payments..."

"DNA testing of a human mandible fossil found in Romania has revealed a genome with 4.8% to 11.3% Neanderthal DNA -- its original owner died approximately 40K years ago, Palaeogenomicist Qiaomei Fu reported to audience members at a Biology of Genomes meeting in New York last week.   She noted also that she and her research team found long Neanderthal sequences.   The high percentage suggests, she added, that the human had a Neanderthal in its family tree going back just 4 to 6 generations.   The finding by the team provides strong evidence that humans and Neanderthals continued breeding in Europe, long after their initial co-mingling in the Middle East (after humans began migrating out of Africa).   Last year, Fu and her team published a paper describing DNA analysis of a human bone fragment found in an unknown place in Siberia.   Dated at 45K years old, the team found evidence of Neanderthal DNA, but more importantly, because it was remarkably well preserved, the relic served to strengthen a slower mutation rate than many in the field were embracing..."

visa, immigration, illegal alien statistics vs. Obummer regime's anti-constitutional lawlessness
"With few exceptions, journalists, scholars, interest groups, think tanks, and the like have often been rebuffed in their attempts to obtain policy and statistical information of all sorts that in prior administrations was routinely provided...   don't get the data, get it in such an untimely fashion as to render it useless, or (if you have the wherewithal) end up filing a Freedom of Information Act law-suit.   The executive branch has gone to singular lengths to keep reliable data from being obtained, including 'stream-lining' annual statistical reports in such a way that whole segments of data are no longer available, or creating new categories that require manipulating data into strange amalgams to present a pleasing but false portrayal of effectiveness.   In essence, they have dumbed-down the reports to make them meaningless for any kind of competent review or critical analysis.   All of this seems to have been done with a wizened and cynical political eye.   The most recent example of misfeasance comes to us courtesy of a report from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG), drably titled 'DHS Missing Data to Strengthen its Immigration Enforcement Efforts' in classic but typical governmental under-statement...   illegal aliens have no privacy rights under the federal Privacy Act [while the protections for US citizens are regularly violated by felonious government officials via that same corrupt 'prosecutorial discretion'...]"

even Jesse Jackson says US execs should not be bringing in H-1B guest-workers, but recruiting American STEM professionals, particularly the African-American community
"'Well, there is more of an opportunity deficit than talent deficit.   It means reaching out further and recruiting and retaining.   For example, the 189 board members in the top 20 companies -- 56 white woman, 3 African-Americans and 1 Latino.   It is not hard to find them.   In the c-suites, 370; 3 blacks.   3 Latinos.   More are qualified than that.   Employment level around 2%.   And while tech is important and [science, technology, engineering, and mathematics] and engineers, about 65% of the valley is non-tech...   As a matter of fact Intel set aside $3M.   Part of it focused on a pipe-line from HBCUs, black colleges to Silicon Valley.   Howard University and Morgan State and North Carolina A&T and Hampton.   As a matter of fact, the chair of MSFT is a Florida A&M graduate.   So, if you want more STEM graduates, more engineers, invest in them.   If you want more apple trees, plant apple seeds.   The fact we need not go abroad to get H-1B workers.   There are workers in Oakland.   Workers in across the country if trained an invested in, in fact they give us high return.   They are American-born and American-bred.'"
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.   Over 2,589,226 H-1B visas have been issued from FY1990 to FY2014 according to the State Department annual reports.

senator Jeff Sessions has filed amendments to "fast track"/"trade promotion authorization" bill, issued "critical alert" to Trans-Pacific Partnership's likely effects on USA sovereignty
"Amendment #1233 ensures that congressional approval is needed for all changes to U.S. law, and so prohibits the application of trade promotion procedures to any implementing bill that permits modification of a trade agreement without congressional approval.   Amendment #1233 contains provisions for proper enforcement by allowing a point of order to be raised on the Senate floor against any implementing bill that violates these terms -- ensuring that the bill proceeded under normal senate procedures that allow amendment.   This ensures that if changes are made to a trade agreement after congress' initial approval of the agreement, then those changes would also need to be approved by congress, thus safeguarding congressional authority and U.S. sovereignty against international interference pursuant to any open-ended amendment or 'living agreement' provisions.   Amendment #1234 holds the Administration and USTR to their word that no trade agreement will be used to change U.S. immigration law or policy.   Modeled after the Congressional Responsibility for Immigration Act of 2003 -- a bill sponsored by cenators Leahy, Feinstein, and Kennedy -- Amendment #1234 prohibits the application of trade promotion procedures to any implementing bill that affects U.S. immigration law.   If an implementing bill or trade agreement violates these terms, then Amendment #1234 would allow a point of order to be raised on the senate floor against the implementing bill, ensuring that the bill proceeded under normal senate procedures allowing amendment.   With congress set to vote to begin debate on fast-track authority and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the White House still refuses to answer even the most basic questions about it.   These are the questions senator Sessions says the White House will not answer:   Will it increase or reduce the trade deficit, and by how much?   Will it increase or reduce employment and wages, and by how much?   Will you make the 'living agreement' section public and explain fully its implications?   Will [Red China] be added to the TPP?   Will you pledge not to issue any executive actions, or enter into any future agreements, impacting the flow of foreign workers into the United States?   Proponents of the Trans-Pacific Partnership want congress to fast-track it before the American people know what's in it.   They want us to trust that enforcement will occur, even though it has not in the past.   They want us to trust that the president won't utilize this broad new avenue to expand foreign worker programs, even though his record demonstrates that he will.   They want us to trust that this time is different.   One of the most important areas TPP proponents ignore is the issue of non-tariff barriers.   The barriers to U.S. exports in this century are increasingly not conventional tariffs, but non-tariff barriers like currency manipulation, backdoor taxes, and a variety of state-sanctioned obstacles to market entry.   Under the TPP, the U.S.A. will lower its tariffs but competitor industries will retain their substantial non-tariff barriers.   This is what Nucor Steel's chairman-emeritus, Daniel DiMicco, means when he talks about 'unilateral American trade disarmament' and the 'enablement of foreign mercantilism'.   IOW, poorly-negotiated trade deals, instead of opening new markets for our industries, tilt the playing field even further in their competitors' direction.   The result is not freer global trade, but more mercantilist market domination..."

"First, the lawyers misled the court as to more than 100K three-year amnesty applications that were approved between Nov. 20 and Feb. 16, when judge Hanen issued his injunction. The lawyers said they didn't intend to mislead, and they assumed the judge knew those applications were being approved. Then the Homeland Security Department [DHS] announced it had approved the 2K or so 3-year applications even after the injunction -- a clear violation of the judge's order, and raising questions about the lawyers' excuses for the first 100K botched applications.."

Booker T. Washington's Heaven vs. the Obummers' H377
"The [Obummers] are 'free at last' from having to face the voters again -- and free to tell us what they really think.   For Barack, there's no longer any need to hide his inner racist.   And he's no longer bashful about advocating to 'spread the wealth' -- Karl Marx style.   For Michelle, there's no longer a need to run from her early statements like, 'For the first time in my adult life, I'm really proud of my country (now that my husband is president).'   Michelle held nothing back at her recent commencement speech at Tuskegee University, the world-renowned institution founded by Booker T. Washington.   I was born and raised near Tuskegee, and our high-school teacher took us to visit the campus every summer.   We slept in the dorms, ate in the cafeteria, and the experience made a lasting impression on me -- so much so that I patterned my private school, The BOND Leadership Academy, after Tuskegee.   Booker T. Washington was born a slave, without his father.   Yet, armed with a strong spirit, hard work and the assistance of white philanthropists who helped fund his institute, Washington became one of our greatest Americans.   In contrast, what have Barack or Michelle ever done to truly help anyone beside themselves?..."

"Ideas matter.   They matter so much that they cause seismic shifts in history...   Words matter.   They matter so much that enemies of freedom use words as weapons and rely upon propaganda to consolidate power.   Speaking out against the world’s worst regimes gives political dissidents and prisoners courage and hope, while failing to speak gives dictators confidence and momentum.   Repressive rulers know that truth about their rule is the biggest threat to their rule.   Why, otherwise, would they expend massive resources stamping out freedom of expression?..."

a new little ice age?: earth may be cooling
"Going back to 1755, only a few solar cycles have had a lower number of sunspots during their maximum phase, he adds.   This continued downward trend began two decades ago, just before Earth stopped warming.   If sun-spots continue declining for a couple more cycles, Earth could enter another 'grand minimum', an extended period of low solar activity.   Reading University space physicist Mike Lockwood agrees.   Solar activity is falling perhaps 'faster than at any time in the last 9,300 years', he observes.   That would mean less incoming solar radiation, which could have a marked cooling effect -- as happened during previous decadeslong episodes of low solar activity.   The 'Maunder Minimum' lasted 70 years (1645-1715), the 'Dalton Minimum' 40 years (1790-1830).   They brought even colder temperatures to the 'Little Ice Age'..."

"When I first saw this New Yortk Times headline -- 'Let Syrians Settle Detroit' -- I confess I misconstrued it as a proposal to let the post-industrial dystopia's fate be settled by some grand Hunger Games proxy war fought by Iran-backed thugs with chemical weapons and blood-soaked ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate armies full of gung-ho western jihadists.   But no, the Times wants to move bazillions of Syrian refugees in to revitalize the Motor City, and thereby, as Tim Blair's droll headline suggests, turn Motown into Motown...   What a fascinating study.   If that's how you make 'active' citizens, let's drop the entire student body of Oberlin in the middle of Somalia and see what they're like when they get back..."

20 RINOs who deserve to be defeated in primaries for supporting amnesty for illegal aliens, and not supporting veterans
Edwin Mora: Breitbart
"Conservatives won a big battle on national security last week when an amendment authored by representative Mo Brooks (AL-5) passed.   The Brooks amendment stripped a provision from the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would have allowed illegal aliens to enlist in the U.S. military and thereby obtain citizenship...   Adding insult to injury, as Breitbart’s Matt Boyle observed, it would have come in an NDAA that reduces America's force size—meaning the NDAA would have, if it weren't for the Brooks amendment bolstered by conservatives like representatives Steve King (R-IA) and Dave Brat (R-VA) among others, put illegal aliens ahead of Americans.   What's more, it would have used a defense bill -- rather than an immigration bill -- to do it...   The Republicans who voted in Committee for the amendment to allow illegal aliens to enlist in the U.S. military are Martha McSally (AZ-2), Tom MacArthur (NJ-3), Frank LoBiondo (NJ-2), Chris Gibson (NY-19), Mike Coffman (CO-6) and Ryan Zinke (MT-At-Large)...   if there was ever an example of a Republican In Name Only or RINO it is these 20, deserve a conservative primary challenge in 2016 and we stand ready to help their challengers in any way we can. They are: Jaime Herrera Beutler (WA-3), Mike Coffman (CO-6), Jeff Denham (CA-10), Carlos Curbelo (FL-26), Charles Dent (PA-15), Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), Bob Dold (IL-10), Chris Gibson (NY-19), Richard Hanna (NY-22), John Katko (NY-24), Adam Kinzinger (IL-16), Frank LoBiondo (NJ-2), Tom MacArthur (NJ-3), Martha McSally (AZ-2), Dan Newhouse (WA-4), Dave Reichert (WA-8), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-27), Elise Stefanik (NY-21), Fred Upton (MI-6), David Valadao (CA-21). Plus Montana's Ryan Zinke who voted for the Gallego amendment in committee and then flipped and supported the Brooks amendment on the Floor."

new data show that USCIS fee-waivers are rapidly increasing
"Recently discovered data reveal that in fiscal years 2010-2012, the grants of fee waivers doubled each year, reaching more than 370K in the last-noted year.   Since each fee waiver averaged $585 the last time I ran the numbers, that means that in 2012 the agency lost more than $216M [and these fees are supposed to cover all of USCIS's costs].   And as the figure below shows, the trend is ever upward...   What happens when agency income falls at such a rate?   In general terms, all of the agency's customers, both the paying ones and the non-paying ones, have to wait longer for decisions...   Another probability: the decision-making process is rushed and the resulting decisions are of a lower quality than they would be otherwise.   This is bad news, of course, but is usually hidden by the secretive and manipulative way in which DHS handles statistics (the subject of a posting by another colleague, Dan Cadman).   As a by-product of a routine operation, the re-design of USCIS forms, the data shown above were revealed in an obscure publication; they came from a foot-note on pg8 of this document..."

5 "healthy foods" that turn deadly if prepared incorrectly
Medical Daily
"Chia seeds...   The seeds are able to absorb 27 times their dry weight in water.   As reported by Time, when this happens the seeds congeal into a thickened gel-like mass, which can become lodged in the consumer's esophagus...   Kale...   raw kale health shakes led her to develop hypothyroidism.   Also known as an underactive thyroid, this is a condition where the thyroid gland doesn't produce enough of certain hormones, which can result in a slowed metabolism, joint pain, infertility, and heart disease.   Although the condition is usually found in women aged 60 and older, the goitrogenic [goiter-producing] properties of kale, which contribute to the enlarged thyroid, can caused the condition in otherwise healthy young women.   Cooking Kale won't completely get rid of these goitrogenic properties, but it will help to reduce them...   uncooked kale can also 'be hard on the digestive system'...   Red kidney beans...   Naturally, red kidney beans contain toxins called lectins.   This chemical inhibits the stomach cells' ability to self-repair following natural stresses.   On a microbiological level, this results in the death of the cells, but to those who consume the raw bean, it feels similar to an intense stomach ache.   As little as five raw beans can cause nausea and vomiting...   these beans must first be soaked in water for at least 5 hours...   Rhubarb...   The leaves are poisonous...   even in small amounts the leaves can make a person ill.   Symptoms of rhubarb stalk poisoning include: difficulty breathing, burning in the mouth, diarrhea, eye pain, seizures, and vomiting...   Ackee -- must wait until fruit is fully ripe...   Jamaican Vomiting Sickness... also known as toxic hypoglycemic syndrome...   Symptoms of this illness are abdominal pain, depleting of hepatic glycogen, hypoglycemia, aciduria, coma, and, unfortunately, in the most severe cases, death.   When eating ackee, one must wait until the fruit's protective pods turn red and open naturally, Time reported.   Once open, the only edible section is the yellow arilli.   This is surrounded by signature black seeds, which are always toxic, regardless of the fruit's ripeness."

"So there's this story going around, surely a piece of fiction from a typically clueless Hollywood writer or something, that there's a Republican candidate for president who is open to raising taxes, who urged the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as attorney general, and who is not just a supporter of but a prime mover behind the [Communist Corpse] education mess while blasting opponents for pushing 'conspiracy theories'.   This figment of the imagination also has spent years pushing vastly expanded immigration and what can be described only as mass amnesty for illegals.   Not only that, but he has repeatedly said or strongly implied that those who don't agree with him are not merely misguided, but heartless or nativist (and, yes, 'un-American')...   On second thought, not even Hollywood would be clueless enough to try to sell this story as a realistic drama about a possible Republican nominee.   It must be intended as satire..."

Obummer's Arne Duncan floats another bad idea
"Nothing screams [leftism] like a policy wonk who insists on confiscating your children because of the cultural hell the bureaucrats themselves created.   Since president Carter created the Department of Education in 1979, we have poured trillions of dollars into the public school system as the federal government increasingly micro-manages what and how your children are taught.   The result is horrifying: According to StudentsFirst, in 2012, the United States placed 27th out of 34 countries in math performance and 20th in science performance.   They also report, '66% of all U.S. fourth graders scored below proficient on the 2013 National Assessment of Education Progress reading test, meaning that they are not reading at grade level.   Even more alarming is the fact that among students from low-income backgrounds, 80% score below grade level in reading.'   According to the Department of Education itself, and reported by The Huffington Post, 32M adults, or 14% of the population, in the United States can't read.   21% of adults in the U.S.A. read below a fifth grade level, and 19% of high school graduates can't read.   In testimony to congress in 2011, Andrew Coulson of the Cato Institute noted, 'We spent over $151K per student sending the graduating class of 2009 through public schools.   That is nearly three times as much as we spent on the graduating class of 1970, adjusting for inflation.   Despite that massive real spending increase, overall achievement has stagnated or declined, depending on the subject.'..."

"Fossil is replacing its tech staffers with cheaper labor provided by a firm in India.   It makes financial sense, the company says, but it raises questions about a profitable enterprise adding to the decline of the American middle class...   It's a common practice that's been growing for [25 years].   Much larger, richer companies, such as the Walt Disney Company, are doing the same thing.   But that doesn't make it any less jarring.   How do we grow a strong middle class when great companies are off-shoring and out-sourcing their high-skilled, high-paying white-collar jobs?...   Fossil broke the news to its tech departments last month.   It has hired an Indian firm, Infosys, to handle technical support and will lay off most tech workers.   Fossil officials wouldn't say how many will be let go.   One employee, speaking on the condition he not be identified, said it's about 100.   Another said it's closer to 200 in all.   And they're not leaving until the end of July, August or September.   Infosys needs time for the transition, and Fossil employees have extra work to do: train their Indian replacements...   Infosys calls these 'knowledge transfer sessions', and they'll be video-taped and used to train Infosys workers in India, [Red China], the Philippines and the Czech Republic.   Robben said those outposts would handle the majority of Fossil's technical support.   Infosys will also station workers at Fossil locations...   A typical IT salary in India is about $6K a year, Hira said.   In the last 6 years, the U.S.A. has lost hundreds of thousands of high-paying jobs to overseas locations, he said.   Infosys also has foreign guest workers with H1-B visas.   The company was granted over 6K H1-Bs in 2013, the most of any employer, Hira testified at a Senate hearing in March.   H1-B workers must be paid the 'prevailing wage', but that's often at least $20K less than their American counterparts, he said.   The guest-worker programs are not supposed to hurt U.S. workers, but loop-holes are so big that the Indian government calls the H1-B 'the out-sourcing visa'..."
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.   Over 2,589,226 H-1B visas have been issued from FY1990 to FY2014 according to the State Department annual reports.

"maternity tourism"/"anchor-baby" case grows with arrest of Orange county CA lawyer
Joel Rubin: Los Angeles CA Times
"In March, scores of federal agents raided properties associated with three alleged operators, who typically bring pregnant Chinese women into the country on tourist visas so their children will be born U.S. citizens...   After searching apartment complexes in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties where operators were suspected of housing pregnant women, authorities named several people as material witnesses in the case and barred them from leaving the country.   Four of the witnesses hired Liang to represent them.   In early April, 2 of them -- a husband and wife -- fled back to [Red China], evading detection by purchasing tickets shortly before take-off through a Chinese travel company, according to court records...   Days later, another of the witnesses represented by Liang was caught at LAX trying to board a nonstop flight to China with her husband and infant child.   Suspecting that Liang was involved in the efforts to flee, federal agents sought help from the remaining witness, a woman identified in court records by her initials D.L., authorities said.   The woman approached Liang for help in getting out of the U.S.A. and agreed to pay $6K for the job, court records show.   She made video and audio recordings of several telephone and in-person conversations with Liang, in which he pressed her for payment and stressed the need to keep his involvement a secret..."

"just asking"
Town Hall
"In a recent panel discussion on poverty at Georgetown University, [president Barack Hussein Obummer] gave another demonstration of his mastery of rhetoric -- and disregard of reality...   Since free speech is guaranteed to everyone by the First Amendment to the Constitution, there is nothing to prevent anybody from asking anything from anybody else.   But the federal government does not just 'ask' for money.   It takes the money it wants in taxes, usually before the people who have earned it see their pay-checks.   Despite pious rhetoric on the left about 'asking' the more fortunate for more money, the government does not 'ask' anything.   It seizes what it wants by force.   If you don't pay up, it can take not only your pay-check, it can seize your bank account(s), put a lien on your home and/or put you in federal prison.   So please don't insult our intelligence by talking piously about 'asking'.   And please don't call the government's pouring trillions of tax dollars down a bottomless pit 'investment'..."

non-leftists blame GOP losership for not stopping the left's "fundamental transformation of USA"
"Republicans are not keeping the campaign promise they made to voters in 2014 [nor their oaths of office to uphold the constitution]...   conservative and Tea Party leaders charged in an open letter to congress on Monday...   voters who gave them a landslide victory last November have much higher expectations for them, such as ending executive branch over-reach and restoring the constitutional balance of power...   The GOP's clear mandate is to 'end [ObummerDoesn'tCare]; stop executive amnesty [of illegal aliens]; hold the executive branch accountable for its abuses of power and its national security failures both foreign and domestic; and put the interests of the United States of America and Americans first.'   However, instead of wielding its power as a co-equal branch of government to stop illegal immigration during the first 132 days they controlled both houses of congress, Republicans wound up funding [Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] executive amnesty and jeopardizing national security by failing to address the security risks posed by illegal immigration...   The signatories also called out the Republican leadership for failing to repeal Obamacare, passing a budget that will increase the federal deficit by $500G over the next 2 decades [instead of balancing the budget and paying down the federal government debt], and undermining their own 'faith-based agenda' by not nullifying two District of Columbia laws that violate DC residents' religious liberties.   Nor has the new Republican majority stepped up to provide needed congressional oversight into a number of [Obummer regime] scandals, including Benghazi, the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups and its highly controversial refugee resettlement program, the letter noted.   'Best oversight efforts to date have, surprisingly, been done by an effective outside group, Judicial Watch, who has no sub-poena or constitutional power!'...   A new Gallup poll found that Americans' approval of the Republican-controlled congress after 5 months is just 19%.   According to Gallup, 73% of Republicans disapprove of the way congress is doing its job..."

the true black tragedy

"Today the overwhelming majority of black children are raised in single female-headed families.   As early as the 1880s, three-quarters of black families were 2-parent.   In 1925 New York City, 85% of black families were 2-parent.   One study of 19th-century slave families found that in up to three-fourths of the families, all the children had the same mother and father.   Today's black illegitimacy rate of nearly 75% is also entirely new.   In 1940, black illegitimacy stood at 14%.   It had risen to 25% by 1965, when Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote 'The Negro Family: The Case for National Action' and was widely condemned as a racist.   By 1980, the black illegitimacy rate had more than doubled, to 56%, and it has been growing since.   Both during slavery and as late as 1920, a teenage girl raising a child without a man present was rare among blacks..."

who is at fault?
Town Hall
"As Middle America rises in rage against 'fast track'[/'trade promotion authority'] and the mammoth [ObummerTrade] deal known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership...   Now it is true that, while Nixon and Reagan won 49-state land-slides and gave the GOP five victories in six presidential contests, the party has fallen upon hard times.   Only once since 1988 has a Republican presidential nominee won the popular vote.   But was this caused by following this writer's counsel?   Or by the GOP listening to the deceptions of its Davos-Doha-Journal wing? &nnbsp; In the 1990s, this writer and allies in both parties fought NAFTA, GATT and MFN for [Red China].   The Journal and GOP establishment ran with Bill and Hillary and globalization.   And the fruits of their victory?   Between 2000 and 2010, 55K U.S. factories closed and 5M to 6M manufacturing jobs disappeared.   Columnist Terry Jeffrey wrote that, since 1979, the year of maximum U.S. manufacturing employment, 'The number of jobs in manufacturing has declined by 7.231M -- or 37%.'...   Beginning in 1991, traveling the country and visiting plant after plant that was shutting down or moving to Asia or Mexico, some of us warned that this economic treason against America's workers would bring about political retribution.   And so it came to pass.   Since 1988, a 'free'-trade Republican Party has not once won Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois or Wisconsin in a presidential election.   Ohio, the other great Midwest industrial state, is tipping.   The Reagan Democrats are gone...   Since the early 1990s, we have run $3G to $4G in trade deficits with [Red China].   Last year's was $325G, or twice [Red China's] defense budget.   Are not all those factories, jobs, investment capital and consumer dollars pouring into [Red China] a reason why Beijing has been able to build mighty air and naval fleets, claim sovereignty over the South and East China seas, fortify reefs 1K miles south of Hainan Island, and tell the U.S. Navy to back off?...   Does the Journal think our $11T in trade deficits since 1992 represents a pro-growth policy?   On immigration, this writer did campaign on securing the border in 1991-92, when there were 3M illegal aliens in the United States.   But the Bush Republicans refused to seal the border.   Now there are 11M to 12M illegal immigrants and the issue is tearing the party apart.   Now everybody is for 'secure borders' [except for the 'leadership'].   We did urge a 'moratorium' on legal immigration, such as America had from 1924 to 1965, to assimilate and Americanize the millions who had come.   The Journal Republicans called that xenophobia.   Since then, tens of millions of immigrants, here legally and illegally, mostly from the Third World, have arrived.   Economically, they consume more in tax dollars than they contribute.   Politically, most belong to ethnic groups that vote between 70% and 90% Dem/Red/leftist.."

Chumley, author of _Police State USA_, charge such actions are less about 'saving innocent lives' and more about 'creating a social justice movement that's likely to clamp police from doing their jobs even while it federalizes the nation's forces'.   The [oath-breaker Loretta Lynch's DoJ] also announced $163M in grants...   A list of grants awarded by the Justice Department in 2013 indicate federal funding has been and will continue to be directed toward activist groups described by critics as 'racial agitators'...   Matthew Vadum, an expert in left-wing activist groups and the author of _Subversion, Inc._, warns such federal funding invariably finds its way into the hands of [leftist] activists who personally profit from increased community tensions...   'After attacking police as stupid, racist, vicious and thuggish almost non-stop throughout his presidency, now he suddenly cares about police officers and the communities they serve.   Now he wants to throw millions of [tax-victim] dollars at ACORN-like groups and professional left-wing agitators whose calling in life is to generate civil unrest.   This means that people like the president's point man on race relations, riot organizer Al Sharpton, will get his hands on lots of government money.   This money won't actually help anyone except for the often-violent Saul Alinsky-inspired community organizers who have been living high off the hog ever since one of their own took up residence in the White House.'...   Civil-rights activist reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, author of _Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America_, argues... 'The $163M will not go to fix inner city issues; the bulk of the money will be used to pay off [Barack Obummer's] political cronies.   [Obummer] knows the money won’t be used to rebuild the black community -- the only thing it will do is empower his far-left political allies.   This is an example of redistribution of wealth.   ACORN, Al Sharpton's National Action Network, the NAACP and corrupt black churches will benefit from this plan.'...   Larry Elder, author of _Dear Father, Dear Son_, believes one of the most overlooked aspects of the president's task force is its focus on Baltimore as an example to follow..."

USA: 4 cancer charities run by 1 family are all scams; conned donors out of $187M

"...The Cancer Fund of America is run by James Reynolds i.   His son James Reynolds ii is the CEO of the Breast Cancer Society.   Another charity, the Children's Cancer Fund of America, is run by Rose Perkins, the ex-wife of the elder James Reynolds.   He's also the CEO of the fourth charity, Cancer Support Services...   the charities spent about 97% of donations they received either on private fundraisers or on themselves.   Only 3%, she says, went to help actual cancer patients [compared with the 6% of the Clintons Foundation which goes to actual charity]..."

communist icon Angela Davis lets cat out of the bag on flood of "refugees" into Europe, UK and USA
"...Davis encouraged the refugees in Germany to cultivate 'a culture of resistance' focused on community organizing...   The U.S.A. takes in more United Nations refugees than any other country at about 70K per year.   But refugees are increasingly becoming politically active, as evidenced by their meeting with a professional Marxist organizer like Davis...   last year a group of Somali women demanded that the county commissioners of Hennepin county stock the local food pantry with halal meat in accordance with Islamic dietary laws.   Somali refugees in Seattle demanded better access to government-subsidized housing...   Davis was arrested, charged, tried and acquitted of conspiracy in the 1970 armed take-over of a Marin county court-room, in which four people died.   Davis was closely tied to the Black Panther Party through her involvement in the civil rights movement in the late 1960s.   She visited Cuba after her release from prison in the early 1970s and declared it a racism-free society..."

GOP base is the strongest -- when it comes to elections -- that it's been in decades
Sean Trende & David Byler: Real Clear Politics
"A positive score then means that the Republican Party is stronger while a negative score means the Democratic Party is stronger.   We ran the scale back to the founding of the Republican Party in 1856.   The average score is -4 and the median is -6, suggesting that over time the parties have been pretty evenly matched.   The low score for the Republicans came in 1936, when they hit a bottom of -119.   Their strongest performance was 108 in 1866 (post-Reconstruction, their strongest performance was 79 in 1920).   The standard deviation was 45.6 -- in plain English, that means when a party rises above 45 it can be thought of as doing unusually well, and when it rises above 90 or so it is doing exceptionally well.   About 60% of the results fall between -30 and 30.   Before the 2014 elections, the parties were pretty close to parity: The index stood at 7.98.   This indicated an insignificant advantage for the Republicans, although it placed them well above their post-World War II average of -20.   It goes without saying that Republicans improved upon their showing in the 2014 elections.   Their 54 Senate seats represent the second-best tally for the party since 1928.   Their 247 House seats is the most the party has won since 1928, although when combined with the popular vote percentage, it drops to the second-highest since then (in 1946, the party did slightly better).   At the state level, the GOP’s share of governorships is the ninth-highest since Reconstruction, and the third-highest in the post-war era (1996 and 1998 were higher).   The party's showing in state legislatures is the highest since 1920, the ninth-highest ever, and the third-highest since the end of Reconstruction.   Overall, this gives the Republicans an index score of 33.8.   This is the Republican Party's best showing in the index since 1928, and marks only the third time that the party has been above 15 in the index since the end of World War II."

as highly-skilled Floridians are displaced, Marco Rubio wants even more cheap, young, pliant foreign labor with questionable ethics
Rachel Stoltzfoos: Daily Caller
"About a month before Disney broke the news, this worker got the very highest rating you can get from management in a performance review, received a raise and was told to expect a promotion.   And just a week or two before the announcement, Disney announced record-breaking profits for the company... '20 years of hard work, technical skill building, fostering relationships, a bachelor's degree in IT, guided me to a coveted position as an IT engineer at Disney.'... A 10% bonus was dangled as a reward for those who cooperated fully and maintained a great attitude. The office was soon flooded with the foreign workers, most of whom were fresh out of college. In the first phase, the foreign worker sat next to the American worker in 'knowledge transfer sessions', and videotaped everything they said and did, and then reviewed the tapes with the American worker to ensure accuracy. In the second phase, the guest-worker began working alongside the American worker, who was supposed to oversee and critique them. And in the last 30 days the guest-worker completely took over the American worker's job, while the American worker sat by and watched, tasked only with keeping them from making serious mistakes."

looking behind a seemingly bland USCIS decision
"Tuesday's announcement that USCIS would 'temporarily suspend premium processing for all H-1B Extensions of Stay petitions' is like the proverbial onion -- you have to peel away the layers to find the significance of what sounds like a bland reshuffling of work-loads.   The decision was made so that agency staff can pass judgment (probably 95%+ favorable) on H-4s seeking [Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] employment authorization.   Layer One.   At first blush, this looks like a 'ladies first' ruling.   Why? Because H-1Bs are a largely male work force (mostly in the IT industries) and the group of H-4s who will get the employment authorization documents are primarily their spouses, though a few may be children.   So the men will be mildly inconvenienced while the women will get the big benefit of being able to work 'legally'...   the primary beneficiaries of this policy are the corporate giants that employ the husbands -- if the wives can get jobs, then there is less pressure on the [corporate executives] to raise the wages of the husbands...   A foreign worker who does not get his H-1B authorization extended right away might be forced, under some circumstances, to postpone or eliminate overseas travel plans.   No government agent, not in this administration anyway, will swoop down on him and deport him because he has an out-of-date visa.   The suspension of the extensions is unlikely to hurt anyone.   Layer Two.   On closer examination this is a medium-sized move to expand the U.S. labor force, at a time when millions of residents (citizens and green card holders) are looking for work [and employment/population ratios are extremely low]...   But what if the employer pays the fee and does not get the rapid H-1B extension the company paid for? Well, Uncle Sam will give the company its money back..."

Americans should bet on elections
"Election wagers are legal in many jurisdictions.   Some $150M was bet on the recent election in the UK.   One needn't be a book-maker to guess that U.S.A. wagering would be many times that amount.   As recently as 2012, it was possible for Americans to make on-line bets on U.S. elections in over-seas markets, but the federal government's law-suit against Ireland-based Intrade in 2012 -- which led to the firm's collapse months later -- largely put an end to that practice.   That suit, brought by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, rested on the contention that Intrade was in effect selling options contracts outside an approved exchange.   But the larger fear when it comes to betting on election results is corruption.   The annals of the 19th century judiciary are rich with prosecutions for the practice, including a Pennsylvania case in which the court ruled that voters could bet on primary but not general elections..."

"...The CentCom briefing proved grossly overoptimistic.   According to field reports compiled by a consulting firm, the extremists began Friday with a car bomb attack in Albu Diab, north of the city, that was a 'likely diversion tactic'.   As Iraqi troops rushed north, the insurgents sent a wave of at least 4 car bombs into the city center.   They did their work.   The government defense lines broke.   Given that the Islamic State's drive to capture Ramadi has been predicted for weeks, why didn't U.S. and Iraqi planners reinforce the garrison there?   Why didn't coalition forces fight harder to control Camp Blue Diamond, a former U.S. military base on the northwest edge of the city?   Why didn't the coalition add troops to protect Ramadi's provincial version of the Green Zone in the center of the city?   Why were ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate fighters allowed to capture new stores of Iraqi weapons and liberate scores of their compatriots in Ramadi's jails -- adding new arms and men at a strike?..."

senator Mike Lee's e-mail privacy bill won't stop government grabbing your e-mail messages
"...Section 3 of the actual text of [S356], however, allows for judgeless administrative subpoenas to obtain those [e-mail messages], which are private property even if lacking some 'privacy' because they are shared by private parties, but not the government.   So, the government really doesn't need to obtain a warrant from a judge to obtain [e-mail messages].   Instead, attorneys general and various state bureaucracies, plus the DEA, NSA, EPA, EEOC, SEC, FTC, etc. can issue their own judge-less warrants without oath and affirmation before a neutral judge or magistrate, and without probable cause, yet get our [e-mail messages].   The Fourth Amendment is not [only] about preventing 'general warrants', of course.   A warrant for searches or seizures is a judicial act, wrote 17th century English jurist Matthew Hale in his _History of Pleas of the Crown_, first published in 1736 after his death.   In a confidential memo before the 1763 Wilkes trial of which you write brilliantly in your recent book, chief-justice Pratt wrote to William Pitt that abolishing the secretary-of-state warrants might cancel a weapon necessary to national security.   If compelled, Pratt warned, he would never the less rule on secretary warrants, and that he would come out decisively against them.   (Source: William J. Cuddihy 1791 _The 4th Amendment: Origins and Original Meanings_ pg602.)   Chief-justice Pratt ruled that lord Halifax's warrants were 'unconstitutional, illegal...absolutely void', and wrote, 'No precedents, no legal determinations, not an act of parliament itself is sufficient to warrant any proceeding contrary to the spirit of the constitution.'   He then struck down warrants issued by secretary-of-state lord Halifax, which were authorized by parliament and had been used for 80 years.   Those were the precursors to today's judge-less administrative warrants, which too have been used for 80 years in violation of the separation of powers inherent in the Fourth Amendment, and in violation of the requirements of oath and affirmation, and probable cause.   Only judges may hear oaths necessary to issue warrants, which seemed clear to sir Matthew Hale and chief-justice Pratt, and thus was clear to the adopters of the Fourth Amendment.   Utah attorney-general Sean Reyes announced that his office would no longer issue these administrative subpoenas, saying, 'The wholesale writing yourself a note to go after that stuff without any check is too dangerous and the potential for abuse becomes too dangerous.'   He's right; they are dangerous."

"Boeing, based in Chicago, might move some [more] manufacturing offshore if congress doesn't extend the bank's charter beyond June 30, the Financial Times reported May 17...   Russell Stokes, president of General Electric Company's transportation division, has visited law-makers' offices to push them to reauthorize the bank, said Jessica Taylor, a spokeswoman for the unit.   [GE was a pioneer off-shorer and active promoter of off-shoring and cross-border body-shopping via H-1B, L-1B, E-3 and other visas.]   The company might lose an Angola locomotive deal valued at as much as $350M and perhaps billions of dollars in future exports if Congress doesn't extend the bank's charter, she said.   Taylor said about 1,800 jobs at GE, its suppliers and local businesses in 12 states are at risk without the bank's financing...   Senator Mike Lee of Utah, representative Jim Jordan of Ohio and other Republican law-makers joined Hensarling in urging colleagues to end what Jordan called [crony socialism] by allowing the bank's charter to expire...   At the press conference, Lee urged lawmakers to 'end the perks and privileges that go to the wealthy and the well-connected'.   Critics say the bank primarily helps the biggest U.S. [corporations' executives] rather than [those of] smaller companies more likely to need assistance...   With John Cornyn, the senate's second-ranking Republican, actively looking to join with Democrats to engineer the reauthorization of the Ex-Im Bank and Roll Call's Matt Fuller reporting that House majority-leader Kevin McCarthy could be changing his mind from willing to let the bank's authorization expire to advocating it's reauthorization, conservatives should carefully parse exactly what the Republican establishment says and be prepared to act when they abandon the conservative position in favor of the Big Business cronyism that remains the hallmark of their tenure as the majority in Congress."
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.   Over 2,589,226 H-1B visas have been issued from FY1990 to FY2014 according to the State Department annual reports.

Communist Corpse teaches students to sympathize with terrorist organization Hamas, that Jerusalem should be divided
"One group, Boston-based Americans for Peace and Tolerance headed by Charles Jacobs, released a 27-minute documentary film last month that derides Hobert's project as an 'attempt to indoctrinate' rather than educate...   the program was added to the [Communist Corpse]-approved list of curricula and received Race to the Top funding from the U.S. Department of Education...   Hobert admits on camera in [APT's] documentary that his mission in designing 'Whose Jerusalem?' goes beyond educating students.   He hopes to turn them into activists.   Hobert believes in 'educational, civil disobedience, where students are learning about the Middle East, and they're putting pressure on our government to create a Palestinian state [in addition to the existent and historical one of Palestine=Gaza Strip]', he told Qatar-owned Al Jazeera TV in 2012 March...   Hobert said he has had a 30-year passion for teaching 'conflict-resolution'...   The six role players are Likud, Labor, Fatah, Hamas, the Arab league, which represents the countries around Israel, and the quartet made up of the USA, UN, Russia and European Union.   'Those are the 6 role plays and in each you get 4 pages of confidential instructions.   As you try to divide Jerusalem, each of those groups would be one table with 10 students around it.', Hobert said.   'It's neat...'...   Hamas is on the U.S. State Department's list of designated foreign terrorist organizations.   The Islamic terrorist group has in its charter a call for the elimination of the state of Israel, meaning it wants a 'one-state' solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict...   Schools going global with support of UN..."

Caroline May _Breitbart_
senator Jeff Sessions rips "fast track"/"trade promotion authority" and the Trans-Pacific Partnership
"'Truth: Every trade agreement negotiated by the President and foreign governments is accompanied by implementing legislation which necessarily supersedes existing law.   Proponents of fast-track are relying on semantics: the trade agreement itself will not supersede existing law, but the fast-tracked legislation implementing the trade agreement will.   What's more, the Trans-Pacific Partnership -- which would be fast-tracked by TPA -- will give jurisdiction to international tribunals to settle disputes between parties to the agreement...   Truth: If congress gives the executive 5-year fast-track authority, the senate will cede its ability to amend any future legislation implementing any yet-unseen global trade and regulatory pact; cede its ability to control debate over that pact; and cede its ability to subject that pact to the 67-vote threshold required for treaties, as well as the 60-vote threshold required for important legislation.   Proponents of fast-track suggest the negotiating objectives somehow bind the administration; this is false.   The negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership are nearly complete and have been on-going for years, long before any negotiating objectives will have been suggested.   Moreover, the negotiating objectives are vague and lack any meaningful enforcement mechanisms -- particularly enforcement from senators and representatives not on the revenue committees.   Congress will be giving up the only leverage it has: the ability to amend legislation or to refuse to cut-off debate.   No fast-tracked deal has ever been defeated, regardless of whether fast-track have been ignored, overlooked, or violated by the Executive...   Truth: By eliminating its own powers of review and amendment, congress would dramatically shift the carefully calibrated balance of power between congress and the president.   Fast-track would ensure that the president has complete discretion over the drafting of international agreements congress has never even seen...   Truth: A fast-tracked trade deal has never been blocked.   By denying members any opportunity to slow debate, mobilize the public by seeking extra time, amend the deal, or seek a better deal, fast-tracked legislation is always ratified no matter how flawed.   The train will have left the station once fast-track is adopted.   Without any possibility of a 60-vote, let alone 67-vote, threshold in the senate, this final check will have been removed.   Additionally, the revenues and rules committees have exclusive control over enforcement, eliminating the ability of rank-and-file members to hold the administration accountable for violations.   Those saying congress can just vote down a bad trade deal ignore the unbroken cycle of history...   Truth: Even if Congress declines to implement a trade agreement, the President’s signature will already be on it, opening the U.S.A. up to judgments before an international arbitration body known as the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), or perhaps even before the WTO.   An offshoot of the World Bank, ICSID exists to hear disputes between international companies and foreign governments, at all levels.   Congress ratified a 1965 treaty which stipulated that any ICSID awards will be binding as if awarded by a U.S. court, and the Vienna Convention -- which the State Department generally considers customary international law -- states that the president's signature on the agreement obligates the U.S.A. not to frustrate the purpose of a trade agreement.   As such, the president's signature alone could put many U.S. industries and localities at risk, not to mention binding congress' ability to pass future laws without significant international consequences...   Truth: Fast-track offers no protection against delegations of power or authority to international tribunals should congress adopt the implementing legislation of any future fast-tracked deal.   This is particularly relevant when considering the TPP, which has promised to set up an international commission to make changes to the TPP in the future.   The Living Agreement section of TPP calls for the creation of this new body, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership Commission, and TPP's implementing legislation could well cede important congressional power to this new international body as it did with the WTO.   The overview of the TPP provided to members of congress when they view the TPP's text states that the amendment and accession processes will be similar to those of the WTO, suggesting that congress will indeed be removed from the process after the agreement's initial implementation.   The Ministerial Conference of the WTO, for instance, has the power to amend the agreement or to add new countries to the agreement simply with a two-thirds vote (not a unanimous one), and the WTO's implementing legislation makes these changes binding on the U.S.A. without any additional congressional approval.   At the very least, congress will not know the truth until it has seen the TPP's implementing legislation—which will not happen until Congress has already promised to fast-track TPP...   Truth: Fast-track includes negotiating objectives to remove barriers to services that could easily be used by the Administration to justify the expansion of foreign worker programs.   There is also an entire chapter on Temporary Entry in TPP, which could be used to facilitate the admission of more temporary foreign workers [guest-workers] into the United States.   Even if immigration or temporary entry prohibitions were included in fast-track, the negotiating objectives laid out by fast-track are not binding on the administration.   If any future trade deal, TPP or otherwise, contains language that paves the way for more foreign workers, members will be powerless to strike the offending provision.   Additionally, the living agreement provision allows for subsequent amendments to the trade agreement after its initial implementation, creating an altogether new avenue for changes to foreign worker programs.   Finally, the president has refused to foreclose the possibility of using executive actions or side agreements to facilitate foreign worker expansions, as he did with South Korea as part of the recent South Korean trade deal.   In short, fast-track creates broad new avenues for the White House to bring in more foreign workers—whether in the light of day, or behind closed doors no one can open -- while giving up for 6 years the meaningful ability of congress to do anything about it...   Truth: Fast-track is a mechanism to effectively pre-approve the speedy movement of global trade pacts through congress.   Congress is more than capable of passing trade agreements without a fast-track and has done so in the past...   Truth: The Congressional Research Service has said TPP's living agreement provision is unprecedented.   In essence, the provision allows the agreement to be subsequently amended after initial implementation by its member states, and also allows new member countries to join.   TPP could well cede vast swaths of regulatory authority to a foreign body and expose Americans to the rulings of a new un-elected and unaccountable global commission...   Truth: TPP legislation fast-tracked through Congress will likely contain a provision pursuant to the living agreement clause which would delegate vast regulatory authority to the new TPP Commission.   The TPP Commission will be established under TPP with broad powers to oversee the implementation and amendment of the trade agreement.   Further, TPP's implementing legislation would likely mirror the implementing legislation of the World Trade Organization in 1994.   Under that legislation, amendments to the WTO or domestic adoption of WTO interpretations or rules only requires the bare minimum of reporting requirements by the administration -- no additional vote from congress is required.   Indeed, as the history of the WTO reflects, countries have been able to join the WTO as a matter of course without any additional input from congress; more than that, countries have even been able to join WTO without the approval of executive branch representatives of the United States, as WTO only requires the consent of two-thirds of member nations to add new countries to the agreement.'"

stop Nasty Pelosi? let's stop John Boehner and Mitch McConnell first
"Setting aside the fact that there was no Democratic 'victory' in the Mississippi Special Election of May 12 -- in a field of 13 candidates running in a [free-for-all primary] the 1 lone Dem/Red/leftist got a few tenths of a point more than the leading Republican, meaning something like 83% of voters voted for a Republican versus the 17% that voted for the Dem.   This sets-up a June 2 run-off where the Dem will be vaporized in a district Mitt Romney won by 25 points, unless the NRCC moves in and snatches defeat from the jaws of victory, but Simms' e-mail did get us thinking.   Who is the greatest threat to liberty and American exceptionalism?   The powerless Nancy Pelosi who presides ineffectively over the smallest Democratic House minority in over 80 years, or Republican speaker John Boehner and Republican senate majority-leader Mitch McConnell who have worked tirelessly to stymie conservative efforts to stop [Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] executive amnesty for illegal aliens, refused to use the constitutional power of the purse to thwart [Obummer's] far-left agenda, surrendered congressional power to a lawless president on the Iran deal and Trade Promotion Authority and personally attacked conservatives who objected?   And more to the practical point of what Mr. Simms might do with the money, were one to respond to his pitch, ponder this -- in 2014 October the GOP ran over 10K ads promising to stop [Obummer's] amnesty order.   GOP Senate candidates ran 35K ads on [ObummerDoesn'tCare] in 2014 October alone, and thousands of ads promising to cut spending, end crony government deals for insiders, cut-off government funds for abortion and a host of other items on the conservative agenda -- and none of it has happened.   The ads were, quite bluntly, well-crafted lies -- and everyone on the inside of the Republican establishment knew it...   Yet none of these promises square with how the GOP [losership] has actually conducted themselves once they gained the majority in congress...   What is needed in congress more than anything is not another empty vessel for the lies pedaled by the Republican [losership], but more principled limited government constitutional conservatives who will stop Boehner and McConnell in their head-long rush to surrender what is left of constitutional government and American exceptionalism to [Obummer] and his far-left secular liberal allies.   We just hope district-attorney Trent Kelly, the Republican in the Mississippi 1st District Special Election, measures up."

"...[senator Jeff Sessions said], 'a local district attorney can obtain the same type of information in a routine criminal case.   He issues a grand-jury sub-poena for phone records, which requires only a showing that the records are relevant to an investigation.   The subpoena could require the production of much more detailed information than is acquired under section 215 [of the Unpatriotic Act], such as names and addresses of the callers.   Indeed, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency [DEA] and Internal Revenue Service [IRS] can obtain telephone call records and bank records with an administrative sub-poena without even a prosecutor's approval, much less approval by a judge.   The [thoroughly corrupt] Supreme Court has [since the days of prohibition] held this [anti-constitutional] process constitutional...'..."

Japanese prime-minister Shinzo Abe reveals some of their reasons for wanting Trans-Pacific Partnership
Curtis Ellis: Hill
"Earlier trade agreements with Chile and Singapore and South Korea all expanded the number of foreign workers allowed into the U.S.A.   After reading the text of the TPP agreement in the basement of the capitol, senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) stated his concerns that the president could use TPP to advance his immigration agenda...   Shinzo Abe of Japan explicitly told us that TPP is about creating 'a new economic sphere in which people goods and money will flow freely in the Asia-Pacific region'...   The prime minister's words were neither accidental nor arbitrary -- they come right out of the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Economic Community, today's European Union, based on the free flow of people, goods and money...   The common market was established as an open-ended project, while the TPP is, according to the USTR, a 'living agreement' that can be updated 'to address trade issues that emerge in the future as well as new issues that arise with the expansion of the agreement to include new countries'.   Like the EU, the Trans-Pacific Partnership allows other countries to join -- without re-negotiating the pact or approval by the U.S. congress.   (The [Obummer regime] has said [Red China] could become a member of TPP.)...   We should believe [Barack Hussein Obummer] when he says it will have enforceable rules on labor, energy and the environment.   We should believe him when he says it will enable him to 'write rules for the world's economy'..."

'More than they want a state of their own, they want to throw us out of our own. In the deepest sense possible this is a negative ethos.', she said, quoting Ben-Ami...

Ill-Begotten Monstrosities (IBM) tries to defend abuse of guest-work visas instead of recruiting and hiring able and willing US citizen STEM professionals
Network World
"IBM CEO Virginia Rometty, along with her counterparts from Xerox, Dell, Micron Technology, Qualcomm and EMC, met with [president Barack Hussein Obummer] in March [he hasn't had time to meet with any of the millions of unemployed and under-employed US citizen STEM professionals] on a number of tech issues.   Immigration was singled out as a topic in the White House summary of this meeting...   temporary visa holders account for only around 5% of its U.S. work-force, which is 'apart from other companies that have upwards of 90% of their U.S. work-force on visas'...   Ron Hira, an associate professor of public policy at Howard University, said that 98% of the H-1B petitions that IBM had approved by the U.S. government from fiscal years 2008 through 2013 were in computer occupations, 'the very same types of positions IBM has been down-sizing in the U.S.A.'   The median wage for those H-1Bs, according to the petition data, was $74,753, said Hira, 'which is way below the average wages for those types of positions'...   IBM cut its U.S. work-force as it grew India-based operations, but accurate numbers are difficult to get.   IBM stopped disclosing the size of the U.S. work-force in 2010, and its last officially reported headcount was about 105K.   The Alliance estimates IBM's head-count today at about 76K.   The firm continues to have lay-offs, almost annually, but said in its letter to Grassley that it plans to hire 10K in the U.S.A. this year alone...   The letter to Grassley offers 'a lot of generalizations with no evidence, no specifics', such as [evidence of] a skills shortage, said Hal Salzman, a Rutgers University professor..."
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.   Over 2,589,226 H-1B visas have been issued from FY1990 to FY2014 according to the State Department annual reports.

how to read a US ICE press release -- repeated enforcement failures ignored

2015-05-22 (5775 Sivan 04)
Mark Krikorian _Center for Immigration Studies_
DHS bragged about their failures
"A press release from Immigration and Customs Enforcement this week boasts that ICE removes man wanted by Romanian authorities for attempted murder.   Sounds good, right?   'Tomescu was apprehended near Douglas, AZ, in 2010 July when he tried to enter the United States without inspection.   U.S. Border Patrol officers served him a notice to appear in immigration court and placed him in custody.'   So far, so good.   The Border Patrol is on top of things.   'He was later released on an order of recognizance.'   Wait, what? We let him go!?   This is why illegal aliens need to be detained until they're removed.   Since there's no penalty for skipping an immigration hearing other than being deported -- which is what's going to happen to you anyway if you lose -- why show up?   Almost all of the illegals from last summer's border surge -- also 'released on an order of recognizance' -- gave the finger to the courts and skipped their hearings (Mark Krikorian: National Review).   A look at nearly 2 decades of data shows that the vast majority of illegals not detained simply failed to show up.   Only people who figure they have a good chance of winning will bother to appear before an immigration court if they're not compelled to...   the Democrats are gearing up a major campaign to limit or eliminate the detention [and eliminate deportation, and eliminate removal] of illegal aliens.   The ranking [corrupt] Dem/Red/leftist on the House immigration sub-committee, Zoe Lofgren, demanded this week that any illegal alien bringing a minor with him be released into the U.S.A.   The [raving, insane] New York Times earlier this month called on the government to End Immigrant Detention...   So 4 years after the Romanian border-jumper was let go by the [Obummer regime]...   'In 2014 April, Interpol issued a Red Notice for Tomescu's arrest.   He is charged with attempted murder in Romania.'   Oh, so this simple migrant worker, salt-of-the-earth-just-trying-to-feed-his-family was a violent criminal?   Maybe if we'd bounced him back where he came from in the first place (preferably after convicting him of the crime of illegal entry) the Romanian authorities could have dealt with him a long time ago.   'In 2014, Tomescu was arrested twice on misdemeanor theft charges in the DC-metropolitan area.   In 2014 December, ERO [US ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations] Washington officers placed a detainer on Tomescu while he was incarcerated at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center so he would enter ICE custody upon his release.   He was transferred to ERO Washington's custody in 2015 February.'   He was arrested twice in 2014; the first time was likely before Interpol issued its alert, so US ICE, following [Obummer's] orders, ignored Tomescu because he was only a minor' criminal, and the arrest probably didn't result in conviction anyway.   (My colleague David North has more details on one of Tomescu's past arrests.)   Tomescu might well have been arrested on misdemeanor charges before that, as well; an alert press corps would ask ICE the total number of times he'd been arrested by local cops...   ICE did permit Tomescu to come to the United States and commit additional crimes on our soil..."
Notice to disappear.   They don't want to compensate local jails for holding illegal aliens.   They don't want local police to report discovered illegal aliens to DHS.   They don't want police to investigate whether arrestees are illegal aliens.   And now the corrupt Obummer regime doesn't want to detain and doesn't want to deport illegal aliens, not even illegal aliens who commit additional crimes.

"de-coupling" police work from reality, including the effects of illegal immigration
"My colleague Jessica Vaughan has written an excellent piece on the absurdity of the immigration-related recommendations of the president's Task Force on 21st Century Policing.   The report included the recommendation that civil immigration violations not be included in the FBI's national crime computer (which is not, and hasn't been, an issue for some time) and that state and local police distance themselves from immigration law enforcement, even though the adverse impact of illegal immigration stares state and local governments, including cops, in the face daily.   If that weren't true, 26 states would not be suing the federal government for its amnesty-surrogate giveaway programs.   It's no puzzle, though, as to why the members of this 'task force' decided to wade into deep waters that are far from their fishing grounds.   They aren't independent; they aren't bipartisan; they weren't necessarily selected for the depth and breadth of their analytical powers; and they weren't set up as the result of any statutory requirement levied by Congress.   No, none of the above.   The task force was established because the president wanted it for his own reasons, including those involving politics and pushing of agendas, and the people selected were chosen because they could be counted on to have views sympathetic to his own..."

brain-washing
Medical Daily
"When reverend Jim Jones launched the Peoples Temple in Indianapolis, roughly 2 decades prior to the devastation, he had visions of a flourishing socialist new religious movement.   But in making a home in Jonestown, the 1K or so inhabitants quickly fell into what many now call a cult, and the incident still has scientists and historians studying its catastrophic complexities.   Within weeks of settlement, Jones began indoctrinating his members.   People worked for 8 hours a day and afterward they studied for 8 more.   Often, this included heated, heavily vetted lessons from Jones on Marxist and Maoist propaganda, including books and film screenings.   He broadcasted anti-American news reports over the Jonestown tower speakers throughout the day, forced non-compliers to suffer through beatings and time spent in a slim plywood box called a 'torture hole'...   Its aim is ultimately to control what information enters the brain, where the one doing the brainwashing can delete old associations and, indeed, form brand new neural pathways that cement new ones...   changing the emotional associations people make without them noticing a change is taking place...   unawareness is important, Taylor says, because of a psychological phenomenon known as 'reactance', which states when people know they're being emotionally manipulated, it tends not to work...   the line between emotional parenting and criminal activity is whisper-thin...   The phenomenon is so insidious because it builds a web of false beliefs in which there is no one [obvious] unscrupulous act.   As a result, manipulating a person's psychology is a serious gray area in medical ethics...   Brainwashing carves new neural pathways...   [It is] in our interest to stay keenly aware of when we're being influenced to feel or think a certain way...   people need to expose themselves to diverse ideas from disparate sources..."

how Obummer radically perverted USA's patent system
Cybercast News Service
"...So-called 'patent reform' proposals continue to plague Capitol Hill.   But like health care 'reform' and education 'reform', these government cures are worse than any purported disease...   If truth-in-advertising laws applied to politicians who front massively complex bills that do the opposite of what they proclaim to do, these hucksters would be jailed for their patently fraudulent 'reform' legislation...   In truth, the AIA and its legislative successors are special interest boondoggles that enrich corporate lawyers, Big Business [executives] and federal bureaucrats at the expense of the independent inventors and fledgling innovators the American patent system was created to protect and encourage...   University of Virginia law professor John Duffy points out that the law is 140 pages long, "more than twice the length of the entire federal patent statute" since its last recodification in 1952.   Stuffed with ear-marks [pork] and bribes for the banking industry, Michigan Democrats who lobbied for a new satellite patent office in Detroit, and other well-connected cronies, the AIA's 37 sections are intentionally complex..."

Iran is developing nuclear weapons and delivery systems; is Obummer naive or evil?
"In fact, the Partition that followed Gandhi's goal of Indian Independence killed an estimated four million Hindus and Muslims, a completely predictable outcome that liberals always want to forget.   Gandhi brought Indian Independence at the cost of an enormous religious war.   When Ayatollah Khomeini took over Iran in 1979, he immediately tried to overthrow the Saudi ruling family on the other side of the Gulf, using Shiite pilgrims to Mecca, and then got entangled in a war with Saddam that killed a million people.   The ayatollah's generals ordered suicide charges against Saddam's minefields and artillery positions, some by teenage boys on motorcycles, who blew themselves up to clear the way for Iran's assault troops.   According to Soeren Kern, the boys wore green plastic signs proclaiming, 'A Key to Paradise'.   This is still a source of national pride in Iran, where the suiciders are celebrated on Martyrs' Day...   The ayatollah was so unwilling to stop that war that he called the peace agreement 'a knife in my heart'..."

president Ronald Reagan: Memorial Day 1984 (video)
"Memorial Day is a day of ceremonies and speeches.   Throughout America today, we honor the dead of our wars.   We recall their valor and their sacrifices.   We remember they gave their lives so that others might live.   We're also gathered here for a special event -- the national funeral for an unknown soldier who will today join the heroes of 3 other wars.   When he spoke at a ceremony at Gettysburg in 1863, president Lincoln reminded us that through their deeds, the dead had spoken more eloquently for themselves than any of the living ever could, and that we living could only honor them by rededicating ourselves to the cause for which they so willingly gave a last full measure of devotion.   Well, this is especially so today, for in our minds and hearts is the memory of VietNam and all that that conflict meant for those who sacrificed on the field of battle and for their loved ones who suffered here at home."

John Dewey aimed to abolish Christianity, dumb down students
"'It's amazing how clear [John Dewey] was on his real agenda.', said Alex Newman in a recent radio interview with 'Freedom Friday With Carl Gallups'.   'First of all, he wanted to get God out of the schools.   He wanted to destroy the faith of the American people and abolish Christianity.' Dewey was an early 20th century progressive education reformer.   His ideas were influential in forming the modern American school system.   But Newman, co-author of _Crimes of the Educators_, views him as the chief villain in a decades-long plot to dumb down the American population, paving the way for socialism.   '[Dewey] wanted to move the United States away from what he considered to be an individualistic, constitutional republic where people are free to do as they like and worship God -- the Christian nation that we had – and he wanted to move us more to kind of a Soviet-type system', Newman said...   Before Dewey's time, American education was highly effective, Newman claimed, and it helped reinforce Christianity...   But the dumbing-down agenda is not limited to the United States, according to Newman.   The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has created a 'World Core Curriculum' that downplays the importance of literacy and focuses on making children 'happy, fulfilled, universal human beings', according to curriculum author Robert Muller.."

DoD doc reveals terrorists who attacked consulate at Benghazi were thought to possess SA-7 or SA-23/4 anti-aircraft missiles
"...The five-page document states the 'attack was planned 10 or more days prior on approximately 2012 September 01'...   Shapiro's largely unnoticed remarks 2012 Feb. 2, may shed further light on the activities taking place inside the attacked Benghazi facility.   Of note is that the U.S. facility itself was protected by the February 17 Brigades, which is part of the al-Qaida-allied Ansar Al-Sharia group.   That group also was in possession of significant quantities of MANPADs and was reluctant to give them up, Middle Eastern security officials told WND...   In 2013 March, the United Nations released a report revealing that weapons from Libya to extremists were proliferating at an 'alarming rate', fueling conflicts in Mali, Syria, Gaza and elsewhere."
But if that were the case, we could still have had plenty of time (10-15 days) to deploy ground forces, UAVs and/or cruise missile(s).

WWI Centennial Commission plans for new memorial to move statue of John J. Pershing ("black Jack") to a less prominent location
"...Most of the statues and monuments in the nation's capitol are a product of immense care from past generations of Americans and were crafted with amazing skill.   It will reflect poorly on our own generation if we allow this important dedication to Pershing and those that fought in the First World War to turn into a sad, postmodern farce.   We should not allow Pershing's memorial to suffer a fate similar to that of the proposed atrocious general Dwight Eisenhower memorial that thankfully appears to be nearly dead after 15 years of planning and millions of dollars wasted..."

George Rasley _Conservative HQ_
this Memorial Day, remember Ramadi
"In his 1868 May 30 Memorial Day address at Arlington National Cemetery, congressman, later president, James Garfield said 'I am oppressed with a sense of the impropriety of uttering words on this occasion.   If silence is ever golden, it must be here, beside the graves of fifteen thousand men, whose lives were more significant than speech, and whose death was a poem the music of which can never be sung.'   Garfield, one of our most under-estimated presidents, knew what he was talking about because he knew war; he served as a major-general in the Union Army during the Civil War, and fought in the battles of Middle Creek, Shiloh, and Chickamauga.   Memorial Day, as originally conceived of as 'Decoration Day' in Garfield's time was much less a day when phony politicians could appear patriotic and much more a day for remembering the terrible cost of war.   And it was a day when mere politicians recognized the great sacrifice and courage of the fallen and humbled themselves in awe before it.   But this Memorial Day, if there was ever a time to respectfully breach Garfield's admonition to stay silent beside the graves of our war dead today is that day; there are things that must be said at the graves of America's war dead, because today's politicians are -- in all too many cases -- unworthy of leading a great Nation founded and preserved upon those sacrifices...   some 1,300 Americans lost their lives in Anbar Province and some 83 Americans were killed securing Ramadi, then a strong-hold of Islamist al-Qaeda in Iraq..."

preliminary injunction denied in H-4 "work permit" case; main event still to come
"The issues coming up are:   1.   Standing.   2.   Ripeness.   3.   Whether a claim has been stated upon which relief can be granted.     The court said in its opinion that the case was 'non-frivolous'.   I do not expect the case to be dismissed.   After all the paperwork is filed, I hope to go over these issues in more detail.   In the mean-time, American programmers have to hope that the continuing uncertainty will cause employers not to hire H-4 programmers while this case lingers, since the new H-4 work authorizations could end at any time, requiring any new hires to be dismissed."

Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal amnesty and work permits for spouses of H-1B guest-work visa grantees are treating them better than US citizens in same professions
"'Save Jobs does not explain how many IT jobs may be taken by H-4 visa holders, how many of those jobs its members may have sought themselves, what pay or benefits its members risk losing while the case is pending, or what other harm its members may face.', the judge wrote.   'The court is left to speculate as to the magnitude of the injury [as are the directly displaced and indirectly displaced highly-skilled US citizens], and speculation is not enough to turn economic loss into irreparable harm.'...   Save Jobs USA argued that the administration was going beyond its legal powers, similar to the arguments over [Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] expanded deportation amnesty, and said the Homeland Security Department [DHS] was ignoring the labor market, which can't handle the extra workers [without continuing the harm being done to US citizens]."
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.   Over 2,589,226 H-1B visas have been issued from FY1990 to FY2014 according to the State Department annual reports.

paying for corrupt governments' "freebies"
"There was a day when Americans understood there's no such thing as a free lunch.   They knew somebody always pays.   But thanks to [Barack Hussein Obummer] and his party, which seek to build their voting constituency on a new government-dependency class, expectations about getting food and other stuff for free have risen dramatically over the last 7 years.   This unsustainable economic phenomenon requires those of us who recognize both the danger of empowering government over our lives and the bankruptcy of redistributing wealth to call a spade a spade.   That's what Dr. Lee Hieb, the former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, did when asked about the trend: 'You just can't keep giving everything away to people without them working for it.', she told WND.   'It's not capitalism when you let people who are able-bodied not contribute to society but take the spoils.   I mean, that's just not capitalism.   We have too many people that don't work to eat [and too many people who want to work, have skills and experience, and can't get jobs].'..."

"...The judge's standard of proof of [extent of] injury is ludicrous.   Of course the plaintiffs have no idea how many jobs will be affected -- they're not sooth-sayers.   Further, the judge thinks 'economic loss' doesn't lead to 'irreparable harm' -- a dubious notion, considering what the loss of a job can mean to a family.   On another front, a bipartisan group of senators is asking DHS to investigate whether the guest worker program is leading to layoffs of native-born workers.   So far, Homeland Security [DHS & DoL] has refused to look into the matter...   Hi-tech workers born and educated in America are to be thrown under the bus in this effort..."

"...in Tuesday's ruling, 5th Circuit judges Jerry Smith and Jennifer Walker Elrod denied the stay [i.e. upheld the injunction], saying in an opinion written by Smith, that the federal government lawyers are unlikely to succeed on the merits of that appeal.   Judge Stephen Higginson dissented...   Along with Texas, the states seeking to block [Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal] action are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin."
Josh Blackman
"'A plaintiff suffers an injury even if it can avoid that injury by incurring other costs.   And being pressured to change state law constitutes an injury...   DAPA's version of deferred action, however, is more than nonenforcement: It is the affirmative act of conferring lawful presence on a class of unlawfully present aliens.   Though revocable, that new designation triggers eligibility for federal and state benefits that would not otherwise be available...   Declining to prosecute does not convert an act deemed unlawful by Congress into a lawful one and confer eligibility for benefits based on that new classification...   [It is] not shielded from judicial review as an act of prosecutorial discretion...   [On the down-side] neither the preliminary injunction nor compliance with the APA requires the Secretary to prosecute deportable aliens or change his enforcement priorities...'"

federal judge Pamela Pepper allows law-suit against Infosys for discrimination to continue
CIO
"This law-suit was filed by 'IT' workers identified as 'Caucasians of American national origin', who allege that they were discriminated against because 'they are not of the South Asian race or Indian, Bangladeshi or Nepalese national origin'.   In her 18-page decision, Pepper wrote, in part, 'that the plaintiffs' allegations are sufficient to state claims that the defendants intentionally discriminated against them because of the plaintiffs' race, and the complaint is clear that the plaintiffs regard their race as distinct from the South Asian race that the defendants allegedly favor.'   The Infosys law-suit, which was filed in Wisconsin federal court in 2013 August, is part of a two-pronged legal attack on the 'IT' off-shore industry.   The legal team for the Infosys 'IT' workers is also involved in a similar case against Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), alleging that this company also favored 'South Asians' in hiring and promotion.   Infosys and TCS, both based in India, are 2 of the top users of H-1B visa workers, and these law-suits have potential of shedding light on their use of the visa workers.   The Infosys law-suit has already revealed federal data that is otherwise kept confidential...   This federal EEOC data required Infosys to report the demographic make-up of any location at which it employs at least 50 people, according to the law-suit.   In 2012, there were 59 work-sites that met that criteria, and in 21 of those sites Infosys reported that 100% of its employees are Asian.   For 53 of the 59 sites, 94.5% of the employees were Asian, the law-suit stated.   One of the plaintiffs, Layla Bolten, claims she was harassed because she was not Indian, was denied promotions and was excluded from work conversations by Hindi-speaking supervisors.   Bolten was working on a nearly $50M government project won by Infosys for the District of Columbia..."

another story of disastrous chain immigration
"Chain migration, which is without numerical visa restrictions for some categories of immediate relatives, fuels the huge numbers of individuals coming to our shores legally each year, but without much assurance that they have anything to offer...   34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint (or Darron Dellon Denis Wint, as some media outlets have styled it) seems to be one such person.   Thanks to the media frenzy that accompanied the crime, most people in America probably know about the horrifying murder of a business executive in Washington, DC, along with his wife, son, and house-keeper.   They probably also know that the four weren't just killed, but tortured first; and that a U.S. Marshals fugitive task force (which included a variety of state and local officers) did a great job of tracking down the suspect and taking him into custody in short order.   What fewer know is that prime suspect Wint was an immigrant from Guyana, a happy beneficiary of chain migration who came to the United States on the cusp of adulthood in 2000.   CNN tells us that fact, that he washed out from the Marines in 2001 before even successfully completing basic training, and that he has a history of multiple arrests, but from there glosses over quite a bit...   We would do better to adopt the model used by some other nations, which focuses on assigning points to would-be immigrants based on skills, education, and background to arrive at an overall score in assessing their likelihood to assimilate and succeed in our society."

5th circuit panel ruled in favor of Texas & 25 other states, blocking, for now, Obummer's unconstitutional and illegal amnesty of illegal aliens
"...The court also denied the [Obummer regime's] request that the injunction be limited to just the state of Texas: 'The government maintains that the nationwide scope of the injunction is an abuse of discretion, so it asks that the injunction be confined to Texas or the plaintiff states.   But partial implementation of DAPA would undermine the constitutional imperative of a uniform Rule of Naturalization and congress's instruction that the immigration laws of the United States should be enforced vigorously and uniformly.   A patchwork system would detract from the integrated scheme of regulation created by congress.   Further, there is a substantial likelihood that a partial injunction would be ineffective because DAPA beneficiaries would be free to move between states.'   This is ironic in that it is the [Obummer regime] that has often complained about a 'patch-work' of immigration laws across the country."

"...My own favorite approach to controversial issues, going back to my teaching days, is to confront students with the strongest arguments available on opposite sides of these issues.   The point of this approach is not to feed the students prepackaged conclusions, but to force them to seek facts and apply logic, in their own attempts to resolve complex and important controversies.   Nor should they be allowed to cop out with some vague pieties about how 'the truth lies somewhere in between'.   The truth is wherever you find it -- and the process of trying to find it is what education should be about, regardless of what conclusions they reach..."

Ann Coulter's war
Cybercast News Service
"This week, iconoclastic master Ann Coulter released her new book, _Adios, America!_.   The book has already been labeled racist by the mainstream left, which fears her argument, and will undoubtedly be marginalized by the mainstream right, which doesn't want to hear it.   Coulter's thesis is simple: Since senator Teddy Kennedy, D-MA [and Gary Hart and Celler], rammed through the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, America's immigration system has transformed from a device for enriching the nation for both native-born and immigrants into a scheme for importing anti-American voters.   What made America America, Coulter argues, was a particular blend of Protestant religion and European civilization that led to the rise of the greatest nation in human history.   What will unmake America, she continues, is a deliberate attempt to poison that blend with a flood of immigrants with wildly different values.   Coulter points out that the real number of immigrants currently residing in America illegally far surpasses the 11M consistently put forth by politicians and media.   That 11M springs from census data, which is notoriously unreliable, given that immigrants here illegally typically don't spend time answering government surveys.   The real number, she argues, is far closer to 30M.   And those 30M immigrants in America illegally drive down wages, shred social safety nets, drive up the crime rate and congeal the American melting pot into a melange of inferior cultural values competing for local dominance..."

Mexican government invasions, assaults on US Border Patrol occur quite often
"Based on documents obtained from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Judicial Watch has uncovered the details of an incident on 2014 June 26, in which a Mexican government helicopter crossed into U.S. air-space and opened fire on U.S. Border Patrol personnel located in a clearly marked position.   The CBP documents were released in response to a 2014 July 9, Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.   There's history here.   Going back a decade, Judicial Watch has forced both the [Shrub and Obummer regimes] to release documents detailing intentional border incursions by Mexican military and other government personnel.   DHS records show that Mexican military incursions occur quite often and regularly go unpunished by the U.S. government.   For instance, the DHS documents reveal 226 incursions by Mexican personnel into the U.S. between 1996 and 2005.   In 2007 alone, 25 such incursions occurred along the U.S.A.-Mexico border.   Earlier this year a serious incursion occurred in Arizona, in which two heavily armed and camouflaged Mexican soldiers crossed 50 yards over the border and held Border Patrol agents at gun-point in a tense confrontation..."

"But there's actually another credential that can help you ascend those rungs a lot faster: the principle of 'Minimum Required Credibility' (MRC).   The idea is this: When someone is hiring you, they want proof that you're going to be good.   One way of proving this is, yes, showing that you've been in the field for years and years.   But another way is simply showing that you've succeeded at said task somewhere else before—somewhere comparable or just one level below the company you're aiming for.   You're essentially searching for the least amount of experience you need to gain the most amount of credibility to jump to the next level of your career.   Then, when you're at that next level, use it as a spring-board to get to an even higher level..."

an out-reach campaign from the RINO losership to grass-roots Republicans
"This rift is bigger.   It's between [the RINO losership] in congress and the Republican grass-roots.   It's manifested itself in numerous ways.   The drive to oust [or reform] speaker John Boehner is one.   That effort led to 25 House Republicans opposing Boehner for speaker in January.   [It should have been 230.]   That's just a tenth of the GOP caucus -- 246 strong -- but was enough to threaten Boehner's majority in the House since every Democrat voted against him.   Another example: the primary defeat last year of House majority leader Eric Cantor of Virginia.   The victor was David Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College who'd never won elective office.   Brat is now close to a loose group of 20 or so dissident House Republicans, [derided by chuckleheads like former RINO] congressman Steve LaTourette of Ohio.   Then there's the constant refrain one hears from Republican activists around the country, particularly the Tea Party ones.   They're often as critical of Boehner and [senate majority-loser] Mitch McConnell as they are of [president Barack Hussein Obummer].   Or so it seems.   Conservative talk radio amplifies their criticism.   What's their beef?   It's that Boehner and McConnell would rather...yield than fight for conservative causes against [vile, hateful, race-obsessed, oath-breaker Obummer] and congressional Democrats.   Grass-roots Republicans prefer out-spoken fighters [for what is right] like senator Ted Cruz of Texas, even if the cause is [difficult, or requires a partial, temporary shut-down of the federal government rather than allow unconstitutional and vastly excessive over-spending to continue].   That a gap exists between GOP [losers] in congress and Republicans outside Washington is hardly a secret.   Now a step has been taken, with more to come, to narrow that gap.   It consisted of 30 minutes of Q&A last week between McConnell and directors of center-right think tanks at the state level.   Also invited were officials of national think tanks: the Cato Institute, American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, Manhattan Institute, and Heartland Institute [but not FAIR US, the Center for Immigration Studies, Californians for Population Stabilization, TEA Party Patriots, TEA Party Express, TEA Party.org, and not Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham...]...   The goal is for GOP leaders in Washington to explain what they're doing to influential conservatives around the country.   'They haven't explained well enough [why they're always surrendering to or promoting extreme leftist moves and legislation].', Norquist said...   This year, Republicans passed a [humongous, over-spending] budget...   On issue after issue, McConnell said where Senate [RINO losership stands].   Prospects for patent [law perversion are pretty likely].   Legislation to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy is 'on our agenda to be brought up' [but not likely to be allowed to get anywhere], having already passed the House.   Tax reform 'needs a new president', McConnell said.   'It's pretty obvious this president is not Ronald Reagan...   [Barack Hussein Obummer] is not going to the center...   [He's] far left.'   [So, slam him harder!   Make it necessary for him to exercise a veto, and over-ride some of them!]   Reagan engineered [timid] tax reform, with an assist from Democrats like senator Bill Bradley, in 1986.   McConnell said Republicans can invoke 'reconciliation' to repeal parts but not all of [the unconstitutional national socialist ObummerDoesn'tCare, because the losership is too timid to even attempt anything likely to effectively eradicat it]..."

counter ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate's truck bombs with real close air support
"ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate struck Ramadi in 2014 January, six months prior to attacking Mosul.   When ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate's blitz failed, Ramadi became a battle of attrition.   For 18 months, ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate fighters controlled 'half the city'.   Attrition is a euphemism for killed and wounded.   Iraqi forces suffered 'thousands of casualties' in Ramadi.   The briefer mentioned no specifics, but in 2015 March and April, Iraq's Ramadi forces beat back repeated ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate attacks...   The senior official later said an armored ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate bull-dozer cleared lanes prior to the [vehicle-bomb] strikes.   What a big clue.   The briefer indicated the dozer and armored [vehicle-bombs] were impervious to available Iraqi direct fire weapons.   Target: ISIL/ISIS/Daesh/IS/caliphate bull-dozer conducting combat engineer operation.   For a USAF A-10, the dozer is a dead duck.   So where, pray tell, was the close air support from [Obummer's] anti-ISIL coalition?   Our senior official, now sounding disturbingly junior, if not sophomore, said: 'We want to be very careful before we do airstrikes, because we're coming from the air, we don't have people on the ground.'   No, we don't.   And we didn't.   Despite months of advice to the contrary, to deploy tactical air control teams.   Syrian Kurds credit close air support with securing their victory in Khobane.   No one provides close air support like the U.S.A. does..."

Duncan Hunter accuses Obummer Army brass of retaliation with their criminal investigation of whistle-blower to punish the congressman
"At a 2013 hearing, Mr. Hunter, a former Marine officer and a committee activist, accused the Army of holding back off-the-shelf technology that helps soldiers in Afghanistan find the enemy...   Now, the Army's Criminal Investigation Command is investigating lieutenant-colonel Jason Amerine for his collaboration with Mr. Hunter's staff on legislation to over-haul the [Obummer regime's] hostage policies and hopefully win the freedom of captured Americans.   'It's our belief that the Army investigation into Amerine is occurring strictly due to his association to representative Hunter.', Joe Kasper, Mr. Hunter's chief of staff, told The Washington Times.   'In fact, representative Hunter has met with representatives of the federal agencies involved, and he's acquired a deep understanding of where and how the complaint against Amerine originated and the Army's decision to proceed.'...   Colonel Amerine, who plans to retire soon, holds a special place in the history of the Afghanistan War.   He led one of the first Green Beret A-teams into southern Afghanistan in 2001.   His team then collaborated with Afghan fighters, one of them being Hamid Karzai, the future president of Afghanistan.   The Green Beret-militia unit drove toward Kandahar before it was stopped, not by the Taliban but by the blast of a bomb dropped by a U.S. pilot.   At the Pentagon, colonel Amerine worked in a small Army unit, devoting his time to hostage issues.   In January, he was escorted out of the Pentagon and assigned a desk job in Crystal City, VA..."

** tool for analyzing H-1B visa applications reveals tech salary secrets **
Slash Dot
"The data has been available as down-loadable files for years, but only the most motivated have tackled the analysis, it wasn’t easy to navigate.   But last week a French software engineer, Théo Négri, who has been running a job search web site for tech professionals, released a much more user friendly version of that database, and suddenly, the numbers look very interesting...   'Salaries at Airbnb and Dropbox (according to the visa application data) recently decreased, while FB and Google, where salaries (for the same position) had been growing $10K to $15K a year, from 2014 to 2015 just grew $1K or $2K.'   A big surprise for Négri: He found that the best paid software engineers appear to be at Netflix, where senior software engineers are, according to the labor department data, being paid $240K to $250K and up for positions for which the official prevailing wage is $153K.   (By comparison, Google applied to hire a host of software engineers at $100K to $110K; the prevailing wages listed are $88K to $99K for those positions.)...   several of the technology companies with the largest number of visa applications submitted over the years he analyzed, including Infosys and IBM, don't appear to hire many software engineers at all; instead, they hire 'technology leads' or 'consultants'.   In Négri's opinion, that could be a trick to bring in a technically skilled worker at a lower cost... On May 28 Négri changed his calculations to display median instead of average salaries [but it should facilitate analysis by each... and provide standard deviations]..."

in the conflicted Obummer regime, FBI director James Comey is soliciting help of state and local police to identify, find, track potential terrorists
"FBI Director James Comey has solicited the help of state and local law enforcement agencies, including the New York City Police Department, in an effort to identify, track, and act against potential terrorists.   No one seems to have noted the irony that this request comes at the same time the [Obummer regime] is turning away such help with immigration enforcement...   as a nation we have shunned the concept of a national police force just as surely as we have rejected national identity cards.   Such things are repugnant to the American psyche, smacking as they do of Big Brother.   What's more, a national police force would be an intrusion on the inherent sovereignty of each of our 50 states.   The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution says this: 'The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.'   It seems clear that, from the very beginning, the founders of our nation envisioned a cooperative environment among and between states and the federal government over matters affecting the common good -- including immigration.   It is relevant to note that, for many years, state courts exercised the right to naturalize aliens into citizenship under guidelines set by Congress pursuant to its own constitutional role: 'The Congress shall have Power To...establish an Uniform Rule of Naturalization'.   In fact, prior to the opening of the federal inspection station at Ellis Island in the 1890s, it was the states that enforced the nation's immigration laws.   With all of this in mind, I can't help but note the difference in attitudes of state and local enforcement organizations toward assisting one federal agency (the FBI) while stiffing the federal agencies charged with immigration enforcement, primarily Immigration and Customs Enforcement (US ICE).   Can they not connect the dots?   Do they see no nexus between uncontrolled immigration and national security perils?   Or do they just get to be choosy in their philosophical reasoning and legal consistency about such things as aiding in enforcement of federal laws?"

Americans who genuinely love and support our military still haven't fully recovered from that dastardly trick.   The truth is, these people despise the U.S. military and all the power that it exudes around the globe, even today...   Honestly, there is only one way to honor the sacrifices of our warriors and their families.   That is to elect serious politicians who take very gravely the solemn duty of sending our fighters into war..."

Marsha Blackburn (R-TN): I will take the lead in de-funding competition-suppressing, service-suppressing, price-increasing "net neutrality"
"Blackburn is the first member of congress to publicly express her willingness to block implementation of the new FCC rule that reclassifies the Internet as a public utility.   'We know that [president Obummer's] plan to take over the Internet was written by [leftist] activists behind closed doors at the White House and will result in up to $11G in new fees and taxes for hard working Americans.', Blackburn said in a statement to CNSNews.com.   'It will lead to regulatory uncertainty and be tied up in the court system for years, where the [regime] is already 0-2 on this issue.   The Internet has thrived with a light regulatory touch.   Title II reclassification of the Internet is the regulatory nuclear option and will have disastrous consequences.'..."

*** who designed and built the Brooklyn (and before it Cincinnati) bridge? ***
Cybercast News Service
"...As always, the Beltway narcissists have it backward.   Without private enterprise and free-market visionaries, public infrastructure wouldn't exist.   Take the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, which turned 132 years old this week.   It's not a government official whose vision built that.   It's a fierce capitalist who revolted against unimaginative command-and-control bureaucrats in his home country.   Before he went on to pioneer aqueducts and suspension bridges across America, culminating in the Brooklyn Bridge, John Roebling was a government engineer in the German province of Westphalia.   A cog in the Prussian building machine, he chafed under autocratic rule.   No decisions could be made, no actions taken, he complained in his diary, 'without first having an army of government councilors, ministers, and other functionaries deliberate about it for ten years, make numerous expensive journeys by post, and write so many long reports about it, that for the amount expended for all this, reckoning compound interest for ten years, the work could have been completed'.   Fed up with innovation-stifling conformity, subordination and red tape, the ambitious 25-year-old Roebling set sail for the U.S.A. in 1831 aboard the American-built ship August Edward.   During the 78-day journey, he wrote of his hopes and dreams 'to found a new home in the western continent beyond the ocean, a new fatherland free from tyranny'.   Upon arriving in Philadelphia, he celebrated his adopted land's free-market economy..."

illegal immigration is not inevitable
National Review
"there are still fewer agents in the entire Border Patrol than officers in the NYPD...   Technology is improved and fencing, while still inadequate in many places, really does make it harder to sneak in through formerly busy areas...   Mexico's deportations of Central American illegal aliens have doubled since last year...   A recent report co-authored by Robert Warren, former head of statistics at INS, and published by the Center for Migration Studies, estimates that more than 400K new illegal aliens have settled here annually over the past few years.   But that's being offset by a similar number of others who stop being illegal each year, half of them because they return to their native countries on their own...   something like 60% of illegal immigrants are now over-stays and only 40% are people crossing the border..."

Mark J. FitzGibbons fires back: unpatriotic act data & meta-data collection are unsupported by the US constitution
The analysis is mostly correct.   Where McCarthy goes wrong is in transferring ownership of conversations from the conversants from the work-for-hire firm which made the conversation physically possible.   This notion arose during prohibition, from the idea that "this is a serious matter and thee are not nice people, so we must set aside our scruples, our constitution and laws to get convictions", and should have been slapped down by just, honest, conscientious judges.   Similarly, your medical records belong to you, not to your doctor, nurse, hospital, etc.   Your purchase records belong to you, not to Amazon, Kroger's, Cub, Van's, Macy's, Penney's, Sears, Visa, MasterCard, VerySlime, TRW, Bank of India, Wells Fargo, CitiGroup...   Information about your travels belong to you, not to any government or airline.   Once the transaction is complete, everyone's done his part, and the records should, in general, be cleared, being kept only long enough to sort out reasonable disputes.   If the government wants to get information about you or your actions, the US constitution requires that they get a warrant, and that they only get a warrant if there is sufficient evidence that you have probably been engaged in or probably are engaged in or probably planning an imminent initiation of force or fraud.   Judges should not rubber-stamp every warrant application, and many affidavits lack substance or are seriously flawed.   But neither should they dawdle.   None of this limits legitimate intelligence operations, spying on foreign operatives inside or outside of the USA, cross-border communications, foreign powers, running background investigations on visa applicants, etc.

  "Algerians were estimated to have captured more than 350 British ships between 1672 and 1682, which would mean that they enslaved a few hundred Britons annually. Earlier, in 1627, these pirates ranged even farther afield and raided Iceland, carrying off nearly 400 peopel into bondage. As late as the early 19th century, Barbary pirates captured American ships on the high seas and enslaved their crews." --- Thomas Sowell _Black Rednecks & White Liberals_ pg138 (citing Robert C. Davis 2003, 2004 _Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast, and Italy 1500-1800_ pp4, 7; Paul Baepler 1999 _White Slaves, African Masters: An Anthology of American Barbara Captivity Narratives_ pg9)

SD "voter fraud" case deserves more attention
"According to ballot access activist Paul Jacob, Mr. Jackley's 'threatened penalty is the most severe any American has ever faced on a petition-related charge', while 'the transgressions alleged against Dr. Bosworth are arguably the least sinister' the activist has ever seen brought to trial.   Ms. Bosworth admits that some of the petitions she submitted had been left out on the counter in her medical office for her patients to sign if they chose to do so...   This drastic and disproportionate punishment [jail for up to 24 years and incur as much as $48K in fines] stems from 37 signatures on 6 sheets of paper -- each of which belonged to a living, breathing, registered South Dakota voter who supported Ms. Bosworth in the primary...   Mr. Jacob tries to make the point clear in the 18-page report he has issued regarding the case.   And let it be known that voter fraud does indeed exist, despite the claims of those who oppose rational protections such as the requirement that each person seeking to vote must produce a valid photo ID at his or her respective polling location.   Nevertheless, what Mr. Jackley is attempting to do is more a matter of using the power of his office to settle a personal vendetta against Ms. Bosworth -- whose husband ran against him for attorney general last Fall on the Libertarian Party line after the indictment had been issued -- than an undertaking being carried out in the best interests of justice..."
