Barack Obummer/Jeh Johnson DHS scrubbed records of hundreds of Muslim terrorists; how is this not impeachable?
"...An agent of the Department of Homeland Security, or DHS, for 15 years, Philip Haney, reported Friday that after the Christmas Day underwear bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, tried to blow up a crowded passenger jet over Detroit, '[President Barack Hussein Obummer] threw the intelligence community under the bus for its failure to connect the dots.   He said, This was not a failure to collect intelligence; it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had.'   Haney revealed: 'Most Americans were unaware of the enormous damage to morale at the Department of Homeland Security, where I worked, his condemnation caused.   His words infuriated many of us because we knew [the Obummer regime] had been engaged in a bureaucratic effort to destroy the raw material -- the actual intelligence we had collected for years, and erase those dots.   The dots constitute the intelligence needed to keep Americans safe, and the [Obummer regime] was ordering they be wiped away.'   What Haney discloses is truly shocking: 'Just before that Christmas Day attack, in early November 2009, I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal data-base, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS).   These types of records are the basis for any ability to connect dots.   Every day, DHS Customs and Border Protection officers watch entering and exiting many individuals associated with known terrorist affiliations, then look for patterns.   Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that.   Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the data-base.'..."
Matt Vespa: Town Hall
"...As the number of successful and attempted Islamic terrorist attacks on America increased, the type of information that the Obama administration ordered removed from travel and national security databases was the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks like the ones committed by Faisal Shahzad (2010 May), Detroit 'honor killing' perpetrator Rahim A. Alfetlawi (2011); Amine El Khalifi, who plotted to blow up the USA Capitol (2012); Dzhokhar or Tamerlan Tsarnaev who conducted the Boston Marathon bombing (2013); Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen (2014); or Muhammed Yusuf Abdulazeez, who opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee (2015)..."

anti-"white" agenda revealed at GitHub's "diversity" team
"...GitHub's 'Social Impact Team', which is 'in charge of figuring out how to use the product to tackle social issues' has also faced heavy criticism.   Headed by 'diversity consultant' Nicole Sanchez, the team's previous achievements include working with the [race-obsessed Obummer regime] to fit 'low-income homes' with free Wi-Fi around the country, but the team is now focused on 'diversifying' the company's work-force..."

Donald Trump is the first candidate to answer Jeff Sessions's 5 questions
"...Question 1: How would you vote (or how did you vote) on fast-track, and would you support or oppose advancing a final trade agreement which enters the United States into a new international commission with binding authority on future United States trade policy?...   Question 2: If the vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership were held today, and you had a vote to cast in congress, would you vote for it or against it?...   Question 3: Upon entering office, will you promptly and unconditionally terminate and rescind all of [president Obummer's unconstitutional &] illegal executive amnesties -- which provide work permits and entitlements to illegal aliens -- including [president Obummer's] first executive amnesty in 2012, which remains in effect?...   Question 4: A supermajority of GOP voters say immigration is too high.   Every year, on auto-pilot, we let in another one million immigrants on green cards, 700K foreign guest workers, half a million foreign students, and 100K refugees and asylees.   Historical precedent would be to reduce record-breaking immigration, rather than continuing to surge it beyond all historical precedent.   Will you support legislation to reduce immigration numbers, and will you oppose legislation that would add to the number?...   Question 5: Today, law enforcement are under increasing scrutiny and face excessive criticism from the political elites and the media, and are being targeted by criminals and terrorists.   Meanwhile, since 2011, the federal prison population has declined by over 20K, and is on track to be at its lowest level since 2005.   Since 2009, the total state prison population has dropped every year, and is over 56K lower than it was then.   These circumstances may have contributed to a nationwide spike in crime.   The FBI recently reported an overall increase in violent crime and a 17% increase in homicides in the nation's 50 largest cities.   At the same time, the CDCP reports that heroin and opioid drug overdoses have reached an all-time record high.   Do you support efforts by [president Obummer] and some Republicans in congress to reduce penalties for drug-trafficking and further reduce the federal prison population, or do you think government should do more to keep drug traffickers off the streets?..."

"we might as well abolish our immigration laws"
Washington DC Examiner
"...I mentioned 2 ways in which this ultimate dismantling might come about.   One involved stacking the deck of key appointments, such as enlarging the bench of immigration judges with individuals who share the president's open borders outlook.   That has been happening in earnest, and as one can see from a cursory glance at the official web-site of the Executive Office for Immigration Review, it includes not just rank-and-file judges, but also a slew of six new assistant chief immigration judges who will ride herd over the others.   Can anyone doubt their philosophical proclivities?   The other way involves continuing to mandate executive actions that crush even the semblance of immigration law enforcement.   This most recent directive to the Border Patrol certainly meets that test.   And it is not the only one.   The [Obummer regime] has also directed that aerial surveillance of our borders be cut in half.   This is incredible at a time when ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate terrorists have threatened to infiltrate the USA by any means necessary.   One suspects that they care little about that fight, though, since they have shown no will for it to date, and since it will become the inheritance of the next president.   It takes little imagination to gauge that the reasons for the cut are 2-fold: First, to permit the flooding of our borders with citizens from our southern neighbors in a way that they believe, or at least hope, will force the issue of a future broad-based amnesty.   Second, and more prosaically, to minimize the possibility that there will be a leak of aerial surveillance videos that reveal exactly how damaging the new rules of engagement for Patrol Agents are by showing footage of large numbers of aliens crossing the border with impunity and indifference to the possibility of apprehension..."

federal prosecutors spell out criminal case against Hitlery Rotten Clinton in 1980s
"...With Governor Bill Clinton running Arkansas, Mrs. Clinton leveraged her work at the Rose Law Firm into a series of transactions on behalf of a corrupt financial institution, Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan, run by a long-time Clinton crony, James McDougal.   Among the transactions was a document drafted by Mrs. Clinton to conceal a series of fraudulent loans that were used to deceive federal bank examiners.   The fraudulent loans were part of a land deal known as Castle Grande.   Mrs. Clinton, along with her Rose Law Firm partner Webster Hubbell -- later given a high-ranking post at the Justice Department by president Clinton -- handled the Madison Guaranty accounts for law firm.   Hubbell's father-in-law, Seth Ward, also played a key role in the Madison accounts.   In the mid-1980s, federal bank regulators started taking a close look at Madison Guaranty and concluded that Castle Grande was a sham, a crime, and part of a pyramid scheme to enrich insiders and hide the S&L's disintegrating finances..."

  "The practical threat is that, under the guise or even the self-delusion of pursuing unexpressed legislative intents, common-law judges will in fact pursue their own objectives & desires, extending their law-making proclivities from the common law to the statutory field.   When you are told to decide, not on the basis of what the legislature said, but on the basis of what it meant, & are assured that there is no necessary connection between the 2, your best shot at figuring out what the legislature meant is to ask yourself what a wise & intelligent person should have meant; & that will surely bring you to the conclusion that the law means what you think it ought to mean -- which is precisely how judges decide things under the common law." --- Antonin Scalia 1997 "Common-Law Courts in a Civil-Law System" in Amy Gutmann, Antonin Scalia et al. 1997 _A Matter of Interpretation_ pp 17-18

5 ways immigration has impacted New Hampshire
"...Cognizant filed 818 Labor Condition Applications for New Hampshire jobs for 2015.   Cognizant was recently named in the Disney discrimination lawsuit for its role in bringing in lower-wage foreign workers to replace the American workers, who already filled those positions.   Marco Rubio recently introduced legislation to triple the H-1B visa program.   Rubio's legislation was endorsed by Disney CEO Bob Iger through his immigration lobbying firm, the Partnership for a New American Economy.   Disney is also one of Marco Rubio's biggest financial boosters, having donated more than $2M, according to Open Secrets.   Moreover, a 2014 report from the Center for Immigration Studies analyzing government data found that 'since 2000, 71% of the net increase in the number of working-age (16 to 65) people holding a job in New Hampshire has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal) -- even though the native-born accounted for 65% of population growth among the working-age.   As a result, the share of natives holding a job in the state has declined significantly...the first half of this year [2014], 75% of working-age natives in the Granite State held a job.   As recently as 2000, 79% of working-age natives were working.'..."

all refugees are NOT equal: ill-behaved thugs, bullies, bigots from the Middle East
"...my greatest love of all was for refugees.   My earliest recollections go back to the few Jewish refugees admitted into America in the mid-1930s, when things in Germany were ugly but not yet murderous.   Those refugees had me completely fascinated.   They spoke with such a strange accent, quite unlike Mommy and Daddy's friends from High Point, Wilmington and Rocky Mount.   The most fascinating ones didn't speak English at all.   I could sit there, in short pants, for hours, just silently looking at those refugees and thinking to myself, 'These people come from across the ocean!'   When the war was won and the new refugees came from countries that had become Communist, I was a little older and less vulnerable to childish infatuations, but I never gave up on refugees.   When thousands of Hungarian refugees were welcomed into America in 1956-1957, I volunteered to help Catholic Charities resettle them in North Carolina.   I took deep personal pride in belonging to a country that could offer rescue and refuge.   And did!..."

on immigration: it is time for the West to be realistic
"There are three factors involved.   The first is the unwelcome straightforward issue of the number of would-be migrants, genuine refugees, from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somali, and Eritrea, who can realistically be accepted by European countries and, to a lesser extent, by the USA.   A second is whether those migrants, mostly Muslim, can be satisfactorily integrated into Western democratic [polities].   Already in 2015, more than 1M people came to Europe by sea, and another 34K by land.   A third problem is the [awareness] that some of them [are] Islamists or jihadists prepared to cause harm, rather than genuine refugees..."

"[Obummer]: 'Jefferson and John Adams had their own copies of the Quran.'   The reason Jefferson had a copy of the Quran was to try to understand it in light of what the Muslim ambassador from Tripoli had told him and John Adams. When asked why Tripoli pirates were attacking American ships and enslaving Americans, the Muslim ambassador explained that Muslims are commanded to do so by the Quran: 'It was written in their Quran that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman [Muslim] who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to Paradise.'   That's why Jefferson and Adams had Qurans..."

when Maine required childless adults to work to get food stamps, guess what happened
"...The number of food stamp recipients has risen dramatically, from 17.2M in 2000 to 45.8M in 2015.   Costs have soared over the same period, from $20.7G in 2000 to $83.1G in 2014.   The most rapid growth in the food stamp caseload in recent years has been among able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs).   These are work-capable adult recipients between the ages of 18 and 49 who do not have children or other dependents to support...   In the first three months after Maine's work policy went into effect, its caseload of able-bodied adults without dependents plummeted by 80%, falling from 13,332 recipients in 2014 December to 2,678 in 2015 March.   This rapid drop in welfare dependence has a historical precedent: When work requirements were established in the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program in the 1990s, nationwide case-loads dropped by almost as much, albeit over a few years rather than a few months..."

property rights to be eliminated by Barack Hussein Obummer's tyranny (part 1)
"[Obummer's] Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule is federal enforcement of Sustainable Development Smart Growth Cities.   Until now there was at least a pretense that Smart Growth development was a local process.   That, of course, is what the American Planning Association (APA), Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) and your city council have assured citizens.   Now, through the revelation of AFFH, it is clear that such development is a top-down dictatorship, over-seen by the department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).   Announced 2015 July 16 by HUD secretary Julian Castro, the excuse for the 377 page ruling is to promote and assure discrimination and achieve balanced and integrated living patterns for all citizens.   To achieve that goal, AFFH is specifically designed to move people out of rural areas into mega cities and tightly control who may stay in reduced suburbs.   Exactly as we've been warning about Smart Growth policy.   To achieve its goals, AFFH requires agencies and communities that apply for HUD grants to detail income levels, religion, color, and national origin of every single person living in every neighborhood of the community.   They will then determine any imbalances and, if necessary, force a massive shift of people into such neighborhoods to achieve the desired balance.   This is nothing less than social engineering!   Worse, the AFFH rule will effectively eliminate local government rule over development   [reminiscent of the Syrian and Persian empires', and USSR's & Red China's relocation of populations]..."

what money can (and cannot) buy in USA visa & immigration system
"...Within the system of employment-based green card visas, there are five groupings (with immigrant investors being in the EB-5 category).   Within the EB-3 class there is an allocation, in practice, of 5K visas a year for unskilled workers that is backlogged by only a year or so.   There is an initial process that is often prolonged, and that is securing a labor certification from the USA Department of Labor [DoL] that there is shortage of qualified workers for the position in question.   The exchanges with the caller came in bits and pieces, and some of the facts in the case emerged rather slowly.   In the end I discovered that the man who knew of the poultry scam was already eligible, immediately, for a visa as a Treaty Investor family member (E-2), but did not know it.   Further, after years of waiting, he will be able to get a green card as a relative of a citizen.   (These two facts are not related to each other.)   In the meantime, as an E-2 relative he would be eligible to secure an employment authorization document..."

engineering lessons... for power-mad wannabe "social engineers"
"...engineers fail most of the time.   In engineering there is a cycle of design, test, test failure, diagnosis, and redesign, until a product is perfected.   Failure is the natural state of engineering new devices.   Through their repeated failures, competent engineers are forced to become rigorously honest and functionally conservative.   [Similarly, scientists form hypotheses, and then relentlessly attack the hypotheses of others and themselves, with the result that most hypotheses are sooner or later rejected.]   This honesty is notably lacking in the ungrounded wishful thinking of the political left.   The great failure of [leftists] is that they never fail (according to them)...   America has hundreds of millions of people.   Each individual is infinitely complex and unique.   Each has desires, intentions and needs [priorities, apparent incentive horizons...] that normally are incompatible with any master scheme.   And yet, the left has the arrogance to assume that a master planner can engineer a 'social system' that best for all the people -- a 'one size fits all' program..."

"...In my practice I help unhappy women become joyful and powerful by teaching them to solve their own problems and meet their own needs...   Happy wives don't expect their husbands to read their minds...   Happy wives take responsibility for their feelings...   Happy wives spend time away from their husbands...   Happy wives allow their husbands to be where they're at in life..."

"...It's been over 50 years that the modern slave masters known as the Democrat Party created policies and programs designed to keep black folk down.   Through their scamming so-called anti-poverty programs, the Democrat Party has enslaved far too many black Americans into a life of poverty.   Poverty runs rampant in our communities.   Unemployment amongst my black brothers and sisters is double that of white Americans.   And what does the Democrat Party propose doing?   The same scams it has been pulling off for the past 50 years: enticing black folk to look to Uncle Sugar for the cure when it's been Uncle Sugar who has put black folk on the poverty plantation..."

DNI James Clapper: we might use (i.e. have been) abusing idiot-devices (idiot-phones, idiot-meters, Internet of Things, intelligent transportation systems, vehicle black boxes...) to spy on innocent USA citizens contrary to the USA constitution which requires government departments and agencies and officials and functionaries to establish probable cause to believe individuals have initiated force or fraud or are in the act of initiating force or fraud
John Hayward: Breitbart
"The nation's top intelligence officer admitted Tuesday that the government may use information transmitted to the Internet from your washing machine, your thermostat, your television, your refrigerator or your favorite video game against you.   Almost every home appliance and electronic gadget sold today is outfitted with a computer chip, constantly feeding information about their owners back to utilities, manufacturers and other data networks.   James Clapper, director of national intelligence, in his annual assessment of threats given before the senate Foreign Relations committee Tuesday, said the [executive branch] considers this information fair game against people it [merely] suspects of terrorism or other crimes... Smart meters [a.k.a. idiot-meters], for instance, measure, in real time, a [home-dweller's] electricity usage, what appliance or device the usage is coming from, and feed that information to the local utility provider. Many televisions are capable of picking up sound and motion through microphones and motion sensors. Lap-top computers [tablets & idiot-phones] have built-in cameras [and microphones] -- perfect for spying... 'In the future, intelligence services might use the [Internet of things] for identification, surveillance, monitoring, location tracking, and targeting for recruitment, or to gain access to networks or user credentials [or even an easy means to insert fabricated evidence].', Clapper told the senate panel..."

Christians, gays, women fleeing asylum centres in Germany due to harassment & initiation of force by Muslim men
"...According to German newspaper Die Welt, the violence toward ethnic minorities, religious minorities and women continues to skyrocket across German asylum centres.   Muslim men tear up Bibles and assault Christians, sexually abuse women and children, and beat up homosexuals.   The news has led to calls from human rights campaigners to say enough is enough.   In Stuttgart a case of abuse toward an Assyrian Christian by a Muslim room-mate led to a petition for separate housing that was signed by over 17K people on-line.   The petition, organised by the Central Oriental Christians, asked the City of Stuttgart to, 'please accommodate the displaced Christians in Stuttgart-Neugereut and keep them from further distress and persecution to which they are exposed in a decentralised accommodation'...   Martin Lessenthin, CEO of the International Society for Human Rights also commented on the systematic persecutions of Christians all across German asylum homes.   He said it was common to see both Christians and Yazidis subject to torment and beatings... One victim of sexual abuse is said to have been only eight years old at the time of her abuse by ISIL/ ISIS/ Daesh/ IS/ caliphate..."

Top Secret information was illegally mishandled via 12 to 30 different accounts on Hitlery Rotten Clinton's e-mail server
"'The official said the accounts include not only Clinton's but those of top aides -- including Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Jake Sullivan and Philippe Reines -- as well as State Department Under Secretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy and others.   There is no public evidence they were authorized to receive the intelligence some of which was beyond Top Secret.', Fox News reports.   In fact, as former USA attorney-general Michael Mukasey pointed out, it's 'counter-intuitive to suggest that they all had authorization and access through a non-secure server to information of that sensitivity'.   To put it more bluntly, it's very unlikely that Clinton's retinue was cleared to see the material they were handling.   The other people with accounts on her server were passing around documents so hot they cannot be released to the public at all..."

"State Criminal Alien Assistance Program" (SCAAP) funds: wanting your cake and eating it too
"...The funding has never fully reimbursed states and localities for the costs, given the number of aliens in jails and prisons and the length of their sentences for any number of serious crimes, but it's still a pretty good chunk of change for at least some states, as well as high-volume jurisdictions...   The idea behind the program at statutory inception was that since immigration is a federal matter, and that the aliens, at least in theory, would not be in the country to commit crimes but for our porous borders (and, increasingly in recent years, a failed visa over-stay control system).   There are, of course, some flaws with that logic, not least of which has been the notorious inconstancy of Congress in providing the resources to adequately enforce immigration laws at the border or in the interior of the United States in the first place.   In 1986, when the program first came into being, there were fewer than 1,200 investigators on duty nationally to police all of the country's interior.   But one can understand congressional interest in creating favor with politically savvy and powerful law enforcement officials throughout the country, such as county sheriffs and major city police chiefs, by establishing an atmosphere of good will and cooperation between law enforcement agencies nationwide and federal immigration agents charged with finding and removing alien criminals.   The problem is that recalcitrant state legislatures and city and county councils have erected barriers to such cooperation.   Likewise, many sheriffs and police chiefs have adopted rules that render the jobs of federal agents much more difficult by refusing to honor immigration detainers and declining to notify agents of arrests or the release dates of aliens...   there is something unconscionable about holding out one hand for federal money and using the other to stiff-arm federal immigration agents trying to do their job..."

why do governments persecute Christians?
"A curious situation exists in America, and to a lesser extend in Europe and most of the West.   Despite murderous Muslim rampages, frequent terrorist attacks, vows to overthrow Western governments and replace them with Islam and Shariah law, forced conversion, rape and murder of Christians and homosexuals -- most of these very governments are obsessed with encouraging and growing the Muslim population within their borders.   Does this make any sense to you?   The vast majority of Christians spend their time helping others, donating money for charity at home and missions abroad, attending church and Sunday school, running schools and hospitals to help children and the infirm, encouraging and providing help for women who keep their babies rather than abort them, and helping those who live in the undeveloped world...   But we don't live in a rational world, do we?   If we did, militaries would be much smaller and interventions fewer.   Poor people would be harder to find.   The mentally ill would not be left out on the streets to fend for themselves in a world in which they cannot cope.   Tech billionaires would not import cheap foreign labor.   The dependent class would be much smaller, because independence through work and achievement, not dependence upon government hand-outs, would be taught and encouraged.   Babies would not be aborted for the convenience of the mother.   Illegal immigrants would be deported rather than treated better than citizens.   Taxes would be spent on infrastructure that benefits all, not welfare hand-outs designed to buy next year's vote for entrenched power.   Nor would government lie to its citizens and persecute those with whom it disagrees.   In short, we would live in a rational world..."

"...There is traditional opinion in the works of the commentators to Torah that the construction of the Mishkan/Tabernacle was a form of atonement for the sin of the Jewish people in erecting and worshipping the Golden Calf.   So to speak, gold atones for gold.   Gold well spent on holiness and goodness atones for gold badly misspent on idolatry and wanton behavior.   This idea is very much in line with the Jewish concept of repentance, which sees the penitent being in the same position and circumstances as when he originally sinned but no longer behaving sinfully in those circumstances.   It is truly wise to avoid temptation but it is heroic and noble to overcome it..."

  "Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.   Concerning all acts of initiative [or creation] there is 1 elementary truth, the ignorance of which kill countless ideas & splendid plans: that the moment 1 definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.   All sorts of things occur to help one that would otherwise never have occurred.   A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of incidents & meetings & material assistance which no man would have believed would have come his way." --- W.H. Murray _The Scottish Himalayan Expedition_ (quoted in Julia Cameron & Mark Bryan 1992 _The Artist's Way_ pp 66-67)
