attacks on Donald Trup are back-firing
"While the Beltway candidates for president drone on about E-Verify and other failed programs, the critical minds know that the bleeding hearts will continue to promote the unfettered flood of illegal influx into the U.S.A. whether or not they are coming to work.   Real Americans know there will be more deals, more 'compromise', and they aren't settling for these plans for a moment.   Real Americans can reason that Trump did not mean all Mexicans who cross the border are rapists and criminals.   Real Americans are tired of being told what they think!   Real Americans, the kind who haven't believed in a president since Reagan, are looking at the deafening silence of the BeltWay and corporate America just last weekend in the death of Kathryn Steinle.   Trump's words were proven true in the minds of those who heard the tragedy that took place this week..."

"After finishing second on the list last year, Texas ranks as the best state in 2015 to make a living. The Lone Star State swapped places with runner-up Washington, while Wyoming finished third. All three top states do not have a state income tax, and offer attractive employment opportunities in addition to favorable cost of living environments.

where are Obummer's health-care facilities? (all part of the leftist political slush fund diversion projects)
"Hundreds of millions of American [tax-victim] dollars have been dumped into one Afghanistan health-care project, but the [Obummer regime] cannot [or won't] accurately locate 80% of the 641 medical facilities built in the endeavor, a special federal investigator says.   Using location information known as 'geospatial coordinates' that the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, provided for the audit, inspectors were directed to -- among other unverifiable facilities -- 13 sites that were not even within Afghanistan.   Indeed, the errant USAID-provided coordinates for one facility led to the Mediterranean Sea.   According to a report released this past week by John F. Sopko, special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, or SIGAR, of the 13 non-Afghan locations, 6 were in Pakistan and another 6 were in Tajikistan..."

today's Greek tragedy is Obummer's legacy tomorrow
"...The hideous lesson from the Greek tragedy unfolding with the stately inexorability of an Aeschylean play is that [Obummer] favors every one of the lunatic policies that, having already devastated Russia and [Red China], are now destroying Greece and will soon put an end to free-market capitalism not only throughout Europe but also in the country whose dedication to liberty once made it most successful: the United States of America.   In 1996, I gave a lecture to a joint meeting of the faculties of economics and of international relations at the University of St. Andrews.   In that lecture, I confidently foretold the collapse of the euro, which had not at that time even been introduced.   A Marxist lecturer walked out, for the European Union had already become a top-priority Communist project.   But those who stayed were left in no doubt: the euro would fail, and fail expensively..."

Scott Walker and Rick Santorum both favor cuts in legal immigration, increases in standards
"Since 1989, the United States has been letting in about 1M new immigrants per year, a level comparable to the last great wave of European immigration at the turn of the 20th Century [shortly after the USA's frontiers had been engulfed shortly before 1890, when there were 3.7M immigrants, 1900 when there were 8.8M, 1910 when there were 5.7M, 1920 when there were 5.1M, 1930 when there were 500K; but only the equivalent of 455,302 green cards were issued in 1890, 560,139 in 1891, 579,663 in 1892, 439,730 in 1893, 285,631 in 1895, 343,267 in 1896, 230,832 in 1897, 229,299 in 1898, 311,715 in 1899, 448,572 in 1900].   The Census Bureau estimates there are now 43.3M foreign-born residents in the United States [of America, as compard with 10.3M in 1900, 13.5M in 1910, 13.9M in 1920, 14.2M in 1930] and within 10 years immigrants will account for 15% of the population, a record high.   [citing census bureau historical statistics and DHS statistical year-books]...   Advocates of limiting immigration disavow these sentiments and say they bear no will toward immigrants.   The best reason to limit immigration, they say, is to give U.S. workers more bargaining power.   Blacks, Hispanics and recent immigrants in particular are vulnerable to competition from new arrivals who are willing to do menial work for lower wages, they say.   'We don't have enough jobs for our lower-skilled [and highly-skilled, and specialized-skills] workers now.   What sense does it make to bring in millions more?', Alabama senator Jeff Sessions, a Republican, wrote in the Washington Post in April.   Sessions had been one of the few public officials calling for a decrease in immigration levels until this spring, when Walker said the United States should consider restricting immigration levels when the economy is struggling and raise them when it is booming.   Walker has yet to release a formal immigration plan.   His campaign declined to elaborate on his position or make him available for an interview.   But advocates of limited immigration are thrilled that presidential candidates are taking up their cause.   'Walker's the one who really put this on the map.', said Roy Beck, executive director at NumbersUSA, a group that wants to scale back legal immigration.   'He's said it so many times now I don't see how he could possibly back out of it.'   Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, also wants to reduce immigration by 25% as part of a broader agenda to improve the economic prospects of blue-collar workers..."

sleepy immigration agency (Student and Exchange Visitor Program) with a strange appeals system
"The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) is the sleepiest of the immigration-management agencies -- and that's saying a lot.   Its task is to monitor nearly 9K educational entities, which, in turn, are supposed to monitor more than a million foreign students (as well as the foreign graduates who are working in the OPT program).   It also has an odd appeals structure that chugs into motion only when SEVP denies some (usually tiny) school the right to issue the paper that creates F-1 visas.   Instead of channeling its appeals to such independent, quasi-judicial organizations as the immigration courts, the USCIS Administrative Appeals Office, or the Board of Immigration Appeals -- each of which has separate corps of judges and adjudicators -- SEVP turns inward.   It has created the SEVP Appeals Team (SEVPAT or SAT) and it consists of some SEVP staff members reviewing the negative decisions made by other SEVP staffers.   It all sounds a bit claustrophobic, if not incestuous.   But there is not much to review.   The Center for Immigration Studies filed a FOIA request with SEVP's mother organization, ICE, and received 379 pages of SAT decisions for the period 2011 December through 2014 September.   There were 95 decisions in those years, or about 32 a year.   These decisions, unlike those of AAO, are not routinely made public.   There are very few decisions compared to the 8,979 schools licensed by SEVP; the annual percentage is 0.3%, meaning that there were very few denials, or at least only a handful of them were regarded as worthy of an appeal.   The institutions appealing to SEVPAT/SAT are not only usually quite small, all but one of them had names that were new to me, with the exception being one of DeVry University's many campuses.   (That's a private, for-profit school, as are nearly all of the appellees.)...   Generally SEVPAT/SAT supports the staff's negative decisions, which is not surprising given the fact that an institution has to be in very bad shape before SEVP notices.   What SEVP, an arm of ICE, appears to do is to sort out and reject the most marginal entities wanting to bring in foreign students, but only those at the very bottom of the barrel.   As we have pointed out in the past, visa mills, such as Tri-Valley University in California and the University of Northern Virginia, had the blessing of SEVP for many years before that agency finally caught up with them."
I see not a word on how many hundreds of thousands of US citizens are employed (by DHS or the universities) to run background investigations on these millions of student visa applicants.

"The birthday cake was ablaze with 105 candles, and many among the scores of people present at the Czech embassy in London for the party would not have been there -- or anywhere -- had it not been for the man in whose honor they had gathered.   Nicholas Winton saved the lives of 669 children, mostly Jewish, during the months before the Second World War broke out in 1939.   There are an estimated 6000 people, many of those children, now grown, along with their own descendants, who are alive today because of his efforts, which went unrecognized by his choice for decades.   Born in 1909 in West Hampstead, England, Mr. Winton was baptized as a member of the Anglican Church and became a successful stockbroker.   He lived a carefree life until December 1938, when a friend, Martin Blake, asked him to forgo a ski vacation and visit him in Czechoslovakia, where Mr. Blake had traveled in his capacity as an associate of the British Committee for Refugees from Czechoslovakia, a group that was providing assistance to refugees created by the German annexation of the Sudetenland regions of the country.   Together, the 2 men visited refugee camps filled to capacity with Jews and political opponents of the Nazis..."

time for a convention of the states?
"A new Rasmussen poll reported exclusively by our friend Michael Patrick Leahy of Breitbart reveals the depth of antagonism Americans feel toward the federal government in the wake of the Supreme Court's decisions on same-sex 'marriage' and [ObummerDoesn'tCare].   'Only 20% [of likely voters] now consider the federal government a protector of individual liberty.', the Rasmussen Poll finds.   'Sixty percent (60%) see the government as a threat to individual liberty instead.', it concluded.   Rasmussen Reports noted, 'The Declaration of Independence, the foundational document that Americans honor on the Fourth of July, says that governments derive their authority from the consent of the governed, but just 25% believe that to be true of the federal government today.'   Leahy points out in his article, and CHQ chairman Richard Viguerie documented at some length in his book _TAKEOVER_, the Tea Party movement arose in 2009 to restore those principles of constitutionally-limited government.   But despite electoral victories that placed Republicans in control of the House of Representatives in 2010, and the senate in 2014, it is undeniable that the Republican establishment those elections empowered is instead aligned with the forces of statism.   As Breitbart's Thomas Williams noted, and justice Scalia himself pointed out in his scathing dissent in the gay 'marriage' decision, not a single member of the 9 member court is of the Protestant faith.   Not a single member has graduated from a law school other than Harvard, Yale, or Columbia.   Nor has a single member done anything other than practice some version of corporate law with 'big law' firms, sit on a federal court, work for the federal government, or work in left-wing academia.   Clearly, says Leahy, the majority of the members of the supreme court itself are part of an elitist camp of anti-constitutionalists.   The concept of popular resistance to the unconstitutional encroachment of the federal government on the rights of individuals and states has been gaining momentum over the past several years notes Leahy.   Conservative radio host Mark Levin, for instance, has advocated on behalf of an article 5 convention of the states to propose new amendments to the Constitution for ratification by the states that would limit federal powers.   Conservative author and intellectual leader Charles Murray has also advocated for a type of civil disobedience to resist unlawful federal regulations through the use of well-funded legal challenges to the most egregious of those regulations.   Both concepts have merit, says Leahy, but ultimately lack the power and effective counter-attack available through the simple mechanism offered by the 10th amendment—widespread resistance to federal over-reaches by the state governments themselves.   Bolder, constitutionally based resistance at the state level is a practical and viable remedy, one that already has broad popular support among conservatives concluded Leahy...   Leahy's conclusion is that by limiting the role of the federal government to the exercise of that set of specifically 'enumerated powers' ascribed to it in the Constitution, state governments can guarantee that our constitutional republic will continue to flourish for generations to come.   The alternative is a constitutional republic in name only, a dystopian oligarchy where words have no meaning, right is wrong, good is bad, truth is deception, and the rule of law is invented anew each day by the ruling class of federal royalty..."

GOP losership to give corrupt oath-breaker Barack Hussein Obumer more power?
"After spending most of June giving [president Obummer] new authority to negotiate trade deals with low-wage countries in Asia, congressional Republicans are now poised to spend July giving [Obummer] new authority over education in America's public schools.   This is a big disappointment for those of us who worked hard to elect a Republican congress last November.   We expected the new congress to take power back from the president, not give him more.   For the past 50 years, the engine of federal control over local schools has been Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965.   It was the first in a series of socialist laws president Lyndon Johnson promised would lead to a 'Great Society' after we won his declared 'war on poverty'.   Johnson's 'Great Society' legislation was speedily enacted by a congress in which Democrats outnumbered Republicans by more than two to one (295-140 in the House and 68-32 in the senate).   Despite the trillions of dollars spent since 1965, we're no closer to achieving a Great Society; by many measures, America's education and social welfare are much worse today than when those programs were launched 50 years ago..."

senator Ted Cruz joins in defending Donald Trump regarding illegal aliens (partial transcript + mp3)
"Cruz: 'I am proud to defend Donald Trump, I like Donald Trump, I respect Donald Trump, and he is highlighting an issue that Washington politicians don't want to talk about, which is illegal immigration.   And, you know this well because you focus on it consistently and for a long time I've talked about what I call the Washington Cartel, which is career politicians in both parties -- Democrats and Republicans -- who get in bed with the lobbyists, who get in bed with special interests.   And, the sad reality is the Washington Cartel supports amnesty.   The Washington Cartel doesn't want to stop illegal immigration so they're mad at Donald Trump for focusing on this critical issue.   And, I'm not going to play that game...   anyone who thinks they're being humane or compassionate supporting this quell of unchecked illegal immigration, I would invite them, come down to the border and take a look at the photographs of the bodies of women and children brutalized and left to die in the desert by coyotes, by transnational, vicious, criminal cartels that are smuggling these people in.   That is not humane, it is not compassionate, and Donald Trump, I salute him for shining a light on the need to address this problem and solve it.   It's something I have been fighting to do for years and most of the Washington Cartel does not want to address it...'"

Ted Cruz proud to defend Trump on need to cut illegal immigration, but wants to increase H-1B visas to displace even more bright, knowledgeable, creative, industrious US citizen STEM professionals with cheap, young, pliant, low-skilled guest-workers with questionable ethics
"He also discussed H-1B visas arguing that in the status quo, 'every year US colleges and universities educate tens of thousands of foreign students [so, he admits we're giving out far far too many student visas?] who are getting masters and PhDs in engineering and math and computer science, and we're sending them back to their countries.   And as a result, they're going back to their countries, they're starting businesses there.   They're creating jobs there, and their companies are competing with us and taking jobs away from us [yes, using knowledge from the USA, sometimes technology from the USA].   I don't think that makes any sense.   So, I've [insanely] introduced legislation to increase the number of H-1B visas, if there are people who are educated and talented and creating jobs [in India or Red China or Poland or VietNam or Malaysia...], the data shows for every H-1B visa holder that comes in, he or she creates 1.7 jobs for Americans here [he claimed, but failed to point to the data].   I want job creations, I want innovators, I want new opportunities for America.'   Cruz was asked about Disney's use of H-1B visas to replace US workers who were forced to train their replacements, he stated that [DUCK!!!] he didn't know the facts of the Disney case, so he couldn't comment."
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.   Over 57,600 H-2B visas were issued through consular offices in FY2013, and 68,102 H-2B visas were issued through consular offices in FY2014 according to State Dept. annual reports.   Altogether, over 385,051 H guest-work visas were issued through consular offices in FY2013, and 431,001 H guest-work visas were issued through consular offices in FY2014 according to State Dept. annual reports.   Over 66,700 L-1 guest-work visas were issued via consular offices in FY2013, and over 71,513 were issued in FY2015, according to State Dept. annual reports.   Over 3,946 E-3 guest-work visas were issued in FY2013, and 4,492 E-3 guest-work visas were issued in FY2014, according to State Dept. annual reports.   Over 12,359 O work visas for individuals with "extraordinary" abilities were issued in FY2013, and 12,706 O work visas were issued in FY2014 according to State Dept. annual reports.   Over 534,320 F-1 visas for students were issued in FY2013, and over 595,569 F-1 visas for students were issued in FY2014, according to State Dept. annual reports.

Obummer regime plays needless game of chicken with public safety in Utah
"A few days ago, the Salt Lake Tribune ran a story detailing how the state of Utah enacted legislation requiring background checks to determine immigration status before issuing driver's licenses.   The law was to go into effect on July 1st.   It didn't.   The legislation ran counter to recent actions taken by many states that go out of their way to grant driver's licenses to illegal aliens -- for instance California, where activists tried vigorously to find ways to circumvent the federal Real ID Act and blur the distinction between licenses granted to illegals and everyone else, even though it would put the traveling public at risk by making it impossible for TSA inspectors to discern the difference between the two documents.   (To understand the risks posed by such documents, see the 2 excellent blogs by Jon Feere here and here.)   One would think that the federal government would approve such measures given the state of affairs in America today, when the FBI director publicly calls on state and local governments to aid in investigating and combating Islamic State directed and influenced terrorists because there are so many his agency can't handle the matter alone.   After all, anything that compromises the security of documents used to gain access to airplanes should be a matter of grave concern; conversely, anything that lends levels of security to the driver's license issuing process should be applauded.   As Feere has noted, 'the 19 2001/09/11 terrorists had nearly 30 driver's licenses among them, each with varying information'.   So does the federal government approve of measures such as Utah's? No.   The Tribune reported that the FBI has refused to allow Utah to conduct the checks using the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) data-base routinely used by state law enforcement and regulatory agencies, saying it's against policy.   'It [the FBI] will not allow Utah to use the FBI criminal data-base as long as it plans to share results with any other agency -- even if it is with a fellow federal agency like U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (US ICE).'   In a recent blog commenting on the senseless murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco by a multiply deported, multiple-felon illegal alien from Mexico, I expressed my frustration with people who hide behind such statements, because there is nothing sacrosanct about stupid policies.   Change them.   What happened in San Francisco should be a wake-up call to the folks in the FBI who run the NCIC system: You're playing with fire.   Would you really prevent all Utah agencies from accessing the system and risk letting a wanted felon go free so that Utah doesn't catch illegal aliens trying to commit document fraud (which, BTW, is also a federal felony offense)?   Do you want to be responsible for a brutal murder such as Kate Steinle's?   What. Is. Wrong. With. This. Picture?   Of course, if the Department of Homeland Security had any chops, it could resolve much of the problem by simply giving Utah's motor vehicle bureau direct access to its massive data-base and cut out the middleman.   Maybe that will happen in some more reasonable parallel universe, but we know that isn't going to happen in this one given the [Obummer regime's] willingness to chuck public safety to the wind as long as illegal aliens are not inconvenienced in any way, shape, or form.   This brings us to the Davis-Oliver Act bills pending in both the House and Senate.   Each of them carries a common-sense provision in Section 103 that authorizes and directs use of the NCIC for information about all immigration violators.   It's past time for congress to move these bills forward."

differences between left and right (part 5): it's all about hyper-powerful humongous government

"Clarity is conservatives' best friend.   If most Americans were clear about the differences between Left and Right, they would not vote Democrat in nearly the numbers they do.   The Left understands this, which is why most left-wing rhetoric is dismissive of conservatives' character — 'sexist', 'intolerant', 'bigoted', 'hateful', 'xenophobic', 'racist', 'Islamophobic', 'homophobic' -- rather than conservatives' positions.   By focusing on conservatives as people and characterizing them as bad, the Left successfully deflects attention from its positions...   Without the belief in an ever-expanding state, there is no Left.   Without a belief in limited government, there is no conservatism.   Moreover, understanding this difference is essentially all people should have to know in order to determine whether they are on the Right or the Left..."

"Okay, let's move on now, back to Donald Trump and the immigration situation.   We have even worse news.   A 6-time-deported illegal immigrant is charged in the felony hit-and-run of an Arizona mother and her 2 young children.   The man allegedly admitted to being high on marijuana while causing the severe lacerations to a 5-year-old boy.   The 5-year-old and a 2-year-old were both taken to an area hospital.   This tragedy comes within one week of two separate incidents involving previously deported illegal immigrants allegedly murdering women in two US states: California and Texas.   BTW, I have a question.   What is the name of the woman killed in San Francisco?   You don't even know.   But you know Trayvon Martin's name.   It's obvious that the woman killed in San Francisco will never be as well known as Trayvon Martin.   And, by the way, has anybody heard, is [Obummer] going out to deliver the eulogy at the funeral for the woman that was killed by the illegal immigrant in San Francisco?   I don't think he is, is he?   I don't think [Obummer] cares...   The problem at the border is that the agents have been told to ignore, for the most part.   The problem at the border is that border control has been told to look the other way more often than not.   Because, folks, what is happening here, [Barack Hussein Obummer] is flooding the zone.   He has repeatedly asserted virtually unlimited discretion not to enforce immigration law...   If you're upset by the recent murder of Kathryn Steinle.   That's the name of the woman in San Francisco, BTW...   Her murder doesn't fit any plan to advance the Democrat Party agenda.   And so her murder and her death, nothing to see here..."

"[President Obummer] argues his immigration enforcement policy focuses on felons, not families.   Now that a San Francisco woman has been killed by a 5-time deported illegal, that hardly seems believable.   The coverage of the brazen, daylight shooting of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle as she strolled with her father on San Francisco's touristy Pier 14 near the Bay Bridge last Friday started strangely, with TV reporters getting robbed of their cameras.   The story got stranger.   Steinle's killer was not 'a Texas man' as first reported, but a politically inconvenient illegal alien with 7 felonies on his record and 5 deportations to Mexico.   Not two.   Not three.   Five..."

"Arab Bill Gates" could turn shariah creep into a full trot
"Islamofascism: Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a senior member of the Saudi monarchy, says he'll pledge his $32G fortune to charity.   In light of his past donations, this is a highly concerning development.   Alwaleed says he will model his endowment on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, only with a twist: Much of his philanthropic work will help 'foster cultural understanding' of Islam in America and the West.   That means promoting the kingdom's brand of Islam, while censoring criticism of Islam.   Published reports and books reveal Alwaleed already has pledged millions to radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups that have a secret plan to Islamize America and spread Shariah law throughout the West.   These pro-jihad groups can now count on a massive and virtually endless infusion of cash to their war chests...

senator Jeff Sessions criticized Marco Rubio's wrong-headed proposal to increase H-1B visas, warns he's quashing Americans' dreams
"The war on the American worker is kicking into a new gear.   MSFT is laying off an additional 7,800 U.S. workers, on top of the 18K it has already terminated.   Meanwhile, the software giant is lobbying in Washington for an increase in H-1B visas -- allowing the company to replace these workers with foreigners who are willing to work for far less.   Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), chairman of the sub-committee on Immigration and the National Interest, responded to the grim news and singled out 2016 presidential candidate senator Marco Rubio's I-Squared bill, which Microsoft is pushing for supporting.   The bill would triple the number of H-1B visas issued in the United States, potentially leaving even more Americans working in the STEM and 'IT' fields jobless...   In most cases, laid off [US citizen] workers reveal the grueling process of being forced to replace their H1-B visa-holding replacements before facing termination.   Such was and continues to be the case with Southern California Edison, Disneyland [Disney World] and Harley Davidson among other companies including MSFT...   'consulting firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas recently noted that employers in the computer industry saw the heaviest down-sizing of the year, announcing a total of 59,528 planned lay-offs.   That is 69% more than a year ago....   Each year, universities graduate twice as many students with STEM degrees as find STEM jobs.   According to the Census Bureau, more than 11M Americans with STEM degrees are not employed in STEM jobs -- or 3 in 4 STEM degree holders.   Among recent graduates, about 35% of science students, 55% of technology students, 20% of engineering students, and 30% of math students are now working in jobs that don't require any 4-year college degree -- let alone their area of specialty.   The truth is that, as professor Ron Hira testified, the H-1B visa has become a highly lucrative business model of bringing in cheaper H-1B workers to substitute for Americans...   Most of the H-1B program is now being used to import cheaper foreign guest-workers, replacing [able and willing] American workers, and under-cutting their wages....'"

some churches are abetting "sanctuary" for illegal aliens
Cybercast News Service
Town Hall
"The random, heartless murder of a young tourist on San Francisco's Pier 14 by a 5-time illegal alien deportee who benefited from the [leftist] city's sanctuary policy has law-abiding Americans, law enforcement officials and political opportunists of all stripes up in arms.   But for decades, feckless government leaders ignored the pleas of families who suffered the bloody consequences of open borders.   For every Kate Steinle who died at the hands of an illegal alien sanctuary beneficiary, there is a Tony, Michael and Matthew Bologna in San Francisco.   A Jamiel Shaw (age 17) or Xinran Ji (age 24) in Los Angeles.   A Martin Kudlis (age 3) in Denver.   An Iofemi Hightower, Dashon Harvey, Terrance Aeriel, or Natasha Aeriel in Newark.   A Zina Linnik (age 12) in Tacoma.   A Vanessa Pham (age 19) in Fairfax County, VA.   As I've reported time and again, [leftist] 'sanctuary' programs in these metropolitan areas have protected, harbored and enabled criminal illegal aliens who disappeared into the deportation abyss.   Both Democrats and Republicans, goaded by Big Government and Big Business interests, collaborated to turn America into a collective sanctuary nation.   Non-enforcement is the rule, deportation evasion is the game, and the country is a safe haven -- for law-breakers from around the world.   Yet, even as born-again tough-on-borders grandstanders now race in front of cameras to condemn these dangerous policies, churches across the country are brazenly thumbing their noses at our immigration laws.   And political phonies are doing nothing to stop them.   In Northeast Portland, OR, the Augustana Lutheran Church is shielding illegal alien Francisco Aguirre-Velasquez after he committed drunk driving and drug crimes and violated deportation rules.   In Tucson, AZ, illegal alien Daniel Neyoy Ruiz took open, public refuge at Southside Presbyterian Church and then First Christian Church to avoid deportation.   Fellow illegal alien Rosa Robles Loreto has been living at First Christian for nearly a year.   In Austin, Texas, First Unitarian Universalist church is harboring illegal alien Sulma Franco after the feds denied her deportation appeal.   In Denver, illegal alien Arturo Armando Hernandez Garcia has taken up long-term residence at First Unitarian Society of Denver church.   In Chicago, illegal alien Elvira Arellano settled at the United Methodist Church of Adalberto for a year before finally being ejected back to Mexico.   Last year, the serial law-breaker somehow returned to the Windy City to protest her status 'in the shadows'...   As I've long noted, it's one thing to show compassion to legal immigrants, legitimate refugees and asylees, and those abused and mistreated by smugglers.   It's quite another to conspire against an orderly immigration and entrance system that imposes common-sense limits, eligibility requirements, criminal background checks [and proper background investigations], medical screening and a commitment to assimilation..."

Rugaber & Boak of AP: sit back and accept the "new normal" dysfunctional job markets
"The trouble with this 'baby boomer retirement' meme isn't just that it represents much less than half of the real explanation.   It's also a fact that many boomers are working far longer than they thought they would have to.   That's because, thanks to 6 years of the Federal Reserve artificially holding down interest rates, they can't generate enough replacement income from whatever nest egg they might have accumulated.   They know that they should avoid digging into principal, so they've had to either take more risk than they should in the stock market, continue working -- or both.   Sadly, too many young adults are graduating from college without marketable skills, and the economy hasn't been growing to the point where it is creating enough new jobs college grads could fill.   As a result, we have lots of people with college degrees working in food and drinking places.   Additionally, thanks to abuse by some employers of the H-1b visa program, many of those in the vaunted STEM majors (science, tech, engineering, and math) are having difficulty finding work, because it was given instead to people who aren't citizens...   It's far more than that, guys -- and I guarantee you that if a market-oriented, regulation-controlling and regulation-eliminating president were in office, the so-called 'new normal' we're supposedly stuck with would be replaced with far better circumstances, and relatively quickly."

"Alabama supreme-court-justice Roy Moore told CNSNews.com that was grounds for impeachment for both justices.   Moore's Foundation for Moral Law issued a press release in May, saying, 'Canon 3A(6) of the Code of Conduct for United States Judges provides that A judge should not make public comment on the merits of a matter pending or impending in any court. 28 U.S.C. sec 455(a) mandates that a justice shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.'   'We had 2 justices that were totally disqualified.   They acted illegally.   They violated the Constitution.', Gohmert told the 'Washington Journal'.   That's an illegitimate and improper decision, and when the highest court in the land has two judges that are that condescending and that willing to violate the law in order to impose their unelected will on the American people, then God help us.   We're in a lot of trouble, and I think that's where we are.', he added..."

we could have a convention of the states tomorrow
"Conservatives have been debating the pros and cons of having an article 5 Constitutional convention for a number of years, with some arguing for a convention to propose amendments to the Constitution, while others have argued against the idea on the grounds it could 'run away' and change the very fabric of our federal constitutional republic.   But, says Breitbart's Michael Patrick Leahy, there's another alternative that is faster, and less likely to produce the kind of worrisome changes that concern many conservatives when the idea of an article 5 convention is floated, and that is an assembly of the States.   An article 5 convention of the States can be convened only upon the 'application' of 34 state legislatures to congress to call the convention, as specified in the Constitution itself.   In contrast, an assembly of the States can be convened as soon as a single state legislature passes a resolution stating it will serve as the host state.   It would then extend invitations to each of the other 49 state legislatures to send a delegation to the gathering.   As Leahy notes, at least 27 states have already passed resolutions calling for an article 5 convention of the States solely for the purpose of considering the passage of a balanced budget constitutional amendment.   If 7 more states pass the resolution, congress, acting solely in a ministerial capacity, 'shall call a convention for proposing amendments'..."

senator Jeff Sessions blasted MSFT for laying off US citizens while lobbying to hire more cheap, young, pliant H-1B guest-workers with questionable ethics
"Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) criticized MSFT on Wednesday for shedding around a fifth of its work-force over the past year while arguing for an expansion to the H-1B visa program.   Sessions, who serves as chairman of the sub-committee on Immigration and The National Interest, highlighted MSFT's arguments in support of the I-Squared bill, which could triple the number of available H-1B visas.   The company said that the 'labor shortage' is 'approaching the dimensions of a genuine crisis' and 'the skill gap is one of the biggest problems MSFT faces'.   'As MSFT's lay-offs show, there is a surplus -- not a shortage -- of skilled, talented, and qualified Americans seeking STEM employment.', said Sessions, in a statement.   'Each year, universities graduate twice as many students with STEM degrees as find STEM jobs.'   MSFT announced plans to lay off 7,800 employees on Wednesday, a large number coming from its failing phone hardware division.   2,300 of those were from MSFT's Finnish operations, resulting in a 66% loss to the local work-force.   Finnish government officials said they were prepared to act in response to the sharp drop.   MSFT had previously laid off 18K people in June last year, a 14% drop in its work-force.   'According to the Census Bureau, more than 11M Americans with STEM degrees are not employed in STEM jobs—or 3 in 4 STEM degree holders.', the senator said.   'Any increase to the H-1B visa would only quash the dreams of more talented Americans, glut the labor market and keep pay low, and push more of our own home-grown best and brightest students out of work.'..."

Hanen issued an injunction halting the program.   That's in addition to the 2K that the government had previously admitted to sending out after [and hence in apparent defiance of] the injunction -- moves that have already pushed judge Hanen to call secretary Jeh Johnson to appear personally in his courtroom next month to defend himself..."

happy birth-day 14th amendment; sorry for all of the abuse
On 1868 July 9th a monumental shift happened in the legal landscape.   Slavery had just been abolished by the 13th Amendment as an institution three years prior, and now black people were finally being recognized as humans and citizens by the law.   Of course, no one needs a law to affirm anyone's humanity, but I'm glad, as a person of African descent, that legislation caught up with common sense.   But sadly, the 14th Amendment has been a victim of deteriorating common sense in this country allowing nearly everything to become legal under this race-based Reconstruction Amendment.   Due process.   Equal protection under the law.   These two phrases have become both a battering ram for judicial activists to obliterate our actual Constitutional freedoms and a magic wand to conjure up 'rights' out of thin air.   Federal judges are quite adept at this abuse.   The Supreme Court, at least the majority of it, has mastered the art of Constitutional mutilation..."

BLM has ordered 52K rounds of ammunition for Hoover dam
Kyle Roerink: Las Vegas NV Sun
"A review of federal procurement records by the Sun shows that the Bureau of Reclamation, best known for its management of Western waterways and dams, solicited bids in June for 41,600 rounds of hollow-point ammunition along with 10,400 rounds of shot-gun ammunition...   The department's request is likely to stir debate over the stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by nonmilitary federal agencies.   The BLM faced questions last year over its role in an armed stand-off with militia members supporting Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy's refusal to pay more than a million dollars in [alleged] back taxes and grazing fees...   In 2013, the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] put out a bid to purchase more than 1G rounds of ammunition for its more than 100K law enforcement officials.   That same year, agents from the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] 'inspected' the offices of a mining company in Alaska while wearing body armor and carrying M16 rifles and shot-guns, leading to an investigation by House law-makers..."

F-35 not ready for deployment; incapable of defending itself or USA troops on the ground
"...The worst example is the F-35 joint strike fighter.   Purchases of the F-35 fighter aircraft, the most expensive weapon system the Pentagon has ever bought, are being accelerated.   It will cost more than $400G to buy about 2,500 of them and another $1G to own and operate for the 50 years of their projected life.   For that entire time, absorbing a huge chunk of the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps budgets, the F-35 will be the fighter that ate the defense budget.   The F-35 is supposed to be all things to all services, replacing the F-15, F-16, A-10 and F/A-18.   The Marines want it to provide close air support for troops on the ground.   The Air Force and the Navy want it to be both an attack aircraft and an air superiority fighter.   After nearly 14 years of development, it's clear that it can't perform either of those missions well.   The Air Force has always taken its responsibility for air supremacy seriously.   (The last American ground troop to be killed by an enemy aircraft died in 1953.)   That track record is currently maintained by the F-22 Raptor, a highly-capable fifth-generation fighter that can engage and kill any other aircraft.   In the days the 'fighter mafia' ran the Air Force, there was a mix of 'high' and 'low' fighters.   The F-22 is the air dominance fighter and the F-35 was supposed to be the 'low' fighter, responsible for strike missions and close air support.   But the problem is obvious: With 2,500 F-35s and only 187 F-22s, the F-35 is going to have to defend itself most of the time.   It can't, because its designers -- and the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps leadership -- neglected to deal with the simple math to figure out that you can't protect 2,400 F-35s with just 187 F-22s.   That leaves our air forces unprepared to fight other nations' best such as Russia's Su-35 or [Red China's] J-10.   To build fighters that can't makes no sense...   The single-engine F-35 is under-powered and its control surfaces too small to maneuver effectively and win a dog-fight..."

Dan Cadman _Center for Immigration Studies_
current immigration debate needs to include the concept of "population-neutrality"
"There is a useful concept in tax policy referred to as 'revenue-neutral'.   This term is often used in legislative packages that call for closing tax loop-holes [of changing fees or rates in one part of the tax & fee system] while lowering rates in another part of the tax system so that the rules are changed, but the size of the revenue stream is not.   (Frankly, I am in favor of a non-revenue-neutral policy that would raise taxes on the rich -- but that's another subject.)   One might think that there could be -- and should be -- a concept of population neutrality in immigration policy discussions, but we never hear of it in any of the administration's actions or proposals -- all of which tend to expand the population of the United States.   Most people in the United States are unaware of the fact that we take on one million legal immigrants a year, year after year.   They may notice that the roads and the subways and the bridges are usually crowded, and not getting any younger, but they do not link those images with the reality that immigration keeps adding to the already burgeoning population and providing still more challenges to our crumbling infrastructure.   All the arguments for more investors or more workers or more refugees seem to assume that adding to the population is not a factor to be considered [or that there can be no such thing as over-population or over-crowding].   It should be.   These thoughts came to mind when an evolving effort by the administration to invite foreign entrepreneurs to the United States was given the teleconference treatment recently.   The Department of Homeland Security proposes to stretch the concept of immigration parole (a non-permanent permission to be in the United States) well beyond its original meaning.   Traditionally, exceptions were made to the law in favor of aliens needing medical operations not available in the home country, for instance, or for those non-admissible aliens that the government wants as witnesses in court cases..."

Donald Trump is correct: illegal alien crime is staggering in scope and savagery
"It is estimated that there are some 133,741 foreign criminals in prisons and jails in the USA (1).   They are not there for spitting on the sidewalk or jaywalking, and very few are there for immigration violations, as those illegal alien criminals are typically deported in fairly short order or simply let go as we have seen time and time again.   They are there in large part for molesting, raping, killing, maiming and murdering people in America, as you will see below.   Add in the 168,680 convicted criminal immigrants who have final orders of removal but who remain at large in the U.S.A., and another 179,018 convicted criminal aliens with deportation cases pending but who are also at large (2), and we have a total non-American felon population of 481,439...a number the size of our 35th largest city, Sacramento, California, and larger than the entire populations each of Atlanta, Kansas City, Omaha, Miami, Minneapolis -- and more.   And remember, for most of these felons, there was a victim.   Looking at it another way, illegal aliens constitute 27% of the federal prison population (3).   This means that a group which comprises less than 5% of the population nationally is committing 27% percent of the federal crimes.   So just by that metric alone, illegal aliens commit over five times more serious crimes on a per capita basis than residents do.   But here's another fact.   According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) in an 2005 April 7 report to congress entitled 'Information on Criminal Aliens Incarcerated in Federal and State Prisons and Local Jails', 'The percentage of all federal prisoners who are criminal aliens has remained the same over the last 3 years -- about 27%.   The majority of criminal aliens incarcerated at the end of calendar year 2004 were identified as citizens of Mexico.'   Sorry to report the truth here, but quite a few people owe Mr. Trump an apology..."

"...Speaking of 'sanctuary cities', Limbaugh joked that conservatives need to set up their own:   'Why can't we set up a sanctuary city where anything we want to do that we used to be able to do is permitted?   If marriage is strictly between a man and a woman like it's always been, why can't we have sanctuary cities where that's the case?   How do they get away with sanctuary cities that break the law, allow breaking the law in violation of U.S. government policy?   And notice who enables it!   The federal government when it's run by the Democrats/Reds leftists.'...   On that same subject, Levin castigated the political class left and right for failing to get serious about illegal aliens and crime.   'An enormous amount of crime is being committed in this country by illegal aliens.', Levin said.   'That's why [Yebbie Booosh] won't discuss it.   That's why [Barack Hussein Obummer] said nothing about it today.   He'll reach into Ferguson, Michael Brown, where an officer shot him dead in self-defense.   Michael Brown, who had just tapped a store, knocked it over, stole stuff from them.   It's funny what moves [Barack Hussein Obummer] to speak.   The Confederate flag, which had nothing to do with nothing...   They're still talking about the Confederate flag [on the news].   It has no role of what's going on in this country today.'..."

can we keep the confederated constitutional republic?
World Net Daily
"far more intriguing to me was Franklin's implied concern that the newly crafted scheme of government was hardly self-sustaining and ultimately vulnerable.   He and the other framers understood that liberty was rare in world history and that it would be no easy task to design a system that would both maximize and preserve it.   I believe that until relatively recently most Americans cherished this system precisely because it was uniquely equipped to accomplish those purposes.   Now I am not so sure.   The framers established a federal government with sufficient power to ensure ordered liberty, but with a host of limitations on its power.   Governmental power was divided between the federal government and the states, and federal power was divided among three branches that would each check encroachments by the others.   They set up a bicameral legislature to further diffuse federal power and eventually [at the urging of the state conventions] drafted a Bill of Rights to expressly guarantee civil liberties against government intrusion -- and much more.   This system was vastly superior to the celebrated 'democratic' systems of ancient Greece and the Roman Republic.   It wasn't the first system to include popular participation in the decisions of government.   It was unique because it was the first to impose significant limitations on government.   It is those limitations that ensure our liberties.   It is those limitations that make America the greatest nation in world history and the envy of all mankind.   It is the deliberate erosion and destruction of those limitations that existentially threatens this nation today..."

some of the questions the media refuse to ask in the LGBT wars
"For decades now, the [leftist] 'news' media have demonstrated a dramatic tilt toward the gay agenda, beginning with their notion that there is no such thing as a gay agenda.   But now, as the Supreme Court has mandated gay 'marriage' in all 50 states, the [leftist] world is celebrating the agenda it has been pushing for decades.   Television coverage has been the usual appalling agitprop, but in this case it was also a victory lap.   News segments have been either unanimous in their 'analysis' or, if 'balance' is presented, stacked by about 5-to-1.   Simply put, a debate is not allowed, just as it is not allowed on global warming, gun rights, abortion and a host of other [leftist] imperatives.   So much for free speech.   Former 'Good Morning America' weatherman Sam Champion is a gay activist on-air and off, and he recently told CNN that this [leftist] bias is terrific.   'I think TV always eases the path for change.   I think what people watch in their homes, what they're comfortable with in their homes leads the way for acceptance in this country.'   Champion and his champions are never, ever asked serious questions challenging their views.   What kinds of questions are appropriate?   Enter Kevin DeYoung.   DeYoung has taken to the Gospel Coalition web-site to pose over 40 questions to Christians who consider themselves supporters of gay 'marriage'.   These are precisely the kinds of questions a disinterested press would ask if [they] were disinterested...."

Mark Levin: I am becoming increasingly radicalized for liberty
"Nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin said on his Thursday broadcast that he is 'becoming increasingly radicalized for liberty' in the face of an 'increasingly inhumane, increasingly vicious' and 'tyrannical' federal government.   Levin went on to criticize a proposal made Wednesday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to pay doctors for discussing end-of-life options with senior patients.   'Families have these discussions -- children with their parents -- not the federal government paying doctors and nurses to have this discussion so they can just wipe them off the Medicare roles.', Levin said...   'This is the game.   Oh, we have 60-day public comment.   Public comment on what?   98% of the American people don't even know what the hell's going on.   And it's not even their fault.   The government shouldn't be involved in these things, and the government's involved in everything.'"

Except that computer people use 2 as a base raised to multiples of powers of 10, instead of 10 raised to multiples of powers of 3 because powers of 2 are handier for them, but they also want to stay somewhat close to the values of 10 most folks are used to.
