‘Day Without Mexicans’ Planned...sounds like a plan to obey the law for only one day...and what good is that?

‘Day Without Mexicans’ planned

By Miguel Timoshenkov - Laredo Morning Times

As a protest against Arizona’s controversial immigration law, the chambers of commerce from Nuevo Laredo to Matamoros have agreed to set May 25 as a “Day Without Mexicans” on the South Texas border. Business leaders are calling on all Mexican nationals to avoid crossing the international bridges into the United States for any reason, but particularly for shopping, on that day.
“Our action will be united and preventive,” said Emilio Girón Fernández de Jáuregui, president of the Nuevo Laredo Chamber of Commerce.
As have many Mexican officials, Girón Fernández de Jáuregui criticized Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer for criminalizing the lack of documents when “historically, Mexican nationals have left their money in border cities.”
He added that business owners and merchants traditionally have rejected and protested measures that violate human rights. Contrary to earlier reports, there are no plans to block the international bridges as part of the May 25 protest, Girón Fernández de Jáuregui said.
The decision to ask Mexican citizens to avoid traveling to the United States on May 25 was the result of a conference called by the national Chambers of Commerce earlier this week. Chamber officials from each of the cities along the Texas-Mexico border agreed to the plan and will develop their own ways of calling for the boycott.
“It will be a grand moment of solidarity among border Mexicans,” Girón Fernández de Jáuregui said.
Some Texas civic leaders were concerned about the protest, saying that it wasn’t fair to penalize Texas businesses for something that Arizona had done. Several Texas leaders, including Gov. Rick Perry, have said Texas would not follow Arizona’s lead.
“It’s true that Texas hasn’t adopted such a measure, but we’ve already heard that some legislators are considering carrying a bill that would make criminals out of those without documents,” Girón Fernández de Jáuregui said.
The chamber leader emphasized that Mexican workers in the United States are good people who help strengthen the U.S. economy and have helped it grow.
“Our interest is to defend the honor of each Mexican, with or without papers, in the United States,” Girón Fernández de Jáuregui said.

Terrorists Get Citizenship Through Sham Marriages
By: Michelle Malkin Examiner Columnist 

In the aftermath of the botched Times Square terror attack over the weekend, Pakistani-born bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad's U.S. citizenship status caused a bit of shock and awe. The Atlantic magazine writer Jeffrey Goldberg's response was typical: "I am struck by the fact that he is a naturalized American citizen, not a recent or temporary visitor." Well, wake up and smell the deadly deception.
Shahzad's path to American citizenship - he reportedly married an American woman, Huma Mian, in 2008 after spending a decade in the country on foreign student and employment visas - is a tried-and-true terror formula.
Jihadists have been gaming the sham marriage racket with impunity for years. And immigration benefit fraud has provided invaluable cover and aid for U.S.-based Islamic plotters, including many other operatives planning attacks on New York City. As I've reported previously:
>>; El Sayyid A. Nosair wed Karen Ann Mills Sweeney to avoid deportation for overstaying his visa. He acquired U.S. citizenship, allowing him to remain in the country, and was later convicted for conspiracy in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that claimed six lives.
>>; Ali Mohamed became an American citizen after marrying a woman he met on a plane trip from Egypt to New York. Recently divorced, Linda Lee Sanchez wed Mohamed in Reno, Nev., after a six-week "courtship." Mohamed became a top aide to Osama bin Laden and was later convicted for his role in the 1998 United States embassy bombings in Africa that killed 12 Americans and more than 200 others.
>>; Embassy bombing plotter Khalid Abu al Dahab obtained citizenship after marrying three different American women.
>> Embassy bombing plotter Wadih el Hage, Osama bin Laden's personal secretary, married April Ray in 1985 and became a naturalized citizen in 1989. Ray knew of her husband's employment with bin Laden, but like many of these women in bogus marriages, she pleaded ignorance about the nature of her husband's work. El Hage, she says, was a sweet man, and bin Laden "was a great boss."
>>; Lebanon-born Chawki Youssef Hammoud, convicted in a Hezbollah cigarette-smuggling operation based out of Charlotte, N.C., married American citizen Jessica Fortune for a green card to remain in the country.
>>; Hammoud's brother, Mohammed Hammoud, married three different American women. After arriving in the United States on a counterfeit visa, being ordered deported and filing an appeal, he wed Sabina Edwards to gain a green card. Federal immigration officials refused to award him legal status after this first marriage was deemed bogus in 1994.
Undaunted, he married Jessica Wedel in May 1997 and, while still wed to her, paid Angela Tsioumas (already married to someone else, too) to marry him in Detroit. The Tsioumas union netted Mohammed Hammoud temporary legal residence to operate the terror cash scam. He was later convicted on 16 counts that included providing material support to Hezbollah.
>>; A total of eight Middle Eastern men who plotted to bomb New York landmarks in 1993 - Fadil Abdelgani, Amir Abdelgani, Siddig Ibrahim Siddig Ali, Tarig Elhassan, Abdo Mohammed Haggag, Fares Khallafalla, Mohammed Saleh, and Matarawy Mohammed Said Saleh - all obtained legal permanent residence by marrying American citizens.
A year after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, homeland security officials cracked a massive illegal alien Middle Eastern marriage fraud ring in a sting dubbed "Operation Broken Vows." Authorities were stunned by the scope of the operations, which stretched from Boston to South Carolina to California.
Marriage fraud remains a treacherous path of least resistance. The waiting period for U.S. citizenship is cut by more than half for marriage visa beneficiaries. Sham marriage monitoring by backlogged homeland security investigators is practically nonexistent.
As former federal immigration official Michael Cutler warned years ago: "Immigration benefit fraud is certainly one of the major 'dots' that was not connected prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001, and remains a 'dot' that is not really being addressed the way it needs to be in order to secure our nation against criminals and terrorists who understand how important it is for them to 'game' the system as a part of the embedding process."
Jihadists have knowingly and deliberately exploited our lax immigration and entrance policies to secure the rights and benefits of American citizenship while they plot mass murder - and we haven't done a thing to stop them.

Melee On The Malay...it could happen here!


Thai military fire on protesters following killing of rogue general

Top news: The Thai military fired bullets and tear gas at anti-government protesters after a new round of rioting followed the killing of general-turned-protest leader Khattiya Sawatdiphol on the streets of Bangkok yesterday. Khattiya was shot in the head while giving an interview to the New York Times. The Thai military has denied responsibility for the killing.
At least 31 people have been injured in the latest clashes which are centered around the U.S. and Japanese embassies, including two Thai reporters and a Canadian reporter, said to be in critical condition.
This newest round of tension began after the red-shirts, supporters of ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, rejected a government ultimatum to vacate central Bangkok on Wednesday. The protesters have been occupying Bangkok since March 12, demanding that the government dissolve parliament and hold new elections.

Thai troops, protesters clash in capital; 8 killed

Thai soldiers fire tear gas to disperse anti-government protesters on Friday May 14, 2010 in Bangkok, Thailand. Protesters in the Thai capital reinfor AP – Thai soldiers fire tear gas to disperse anti-government protesters on Friday May 14, 2010 in Bangkok, …
BANGKOK – Thai troops fired bullets at anti-government protesters, and explosions thundered in the heart of Bangkok on Friday as an army push to clear the streets and end a two-month political standoff sparked clashes that have killed eight and wounded 101.
As night fell, booming explosions and the sound of gunfire rattled around major intersections in the central business district. Local TV reported that several grenades hit a shopping center and elevated-rail station. Plumes of black smoke hung over the neighborhood as tires burned in eerily empty streets while onlookers ducked for cover.
With security deteriorating and hopes of a peaceful resolution to the standoff increasingly unlikely, what was once one of Southeast Asia's most stable democracies and magnets of foreign investment has been thrust deep into political uncertainty. The crisis threatens its stability, economy and already-decimated tourism industry.
Violence escalated after a rogue army general regarded as a military adviser to the Red Shirt protesters was shot in the head Thursday evening, possibly by a sniper. A doctor said Maj. Gen. Khattiya Sawasdiphol was still in a coma Friday and he could "die at any moment."
Clashes since then have killed eight and wounded 101, officials said. Among those wounded were two Thai journalists and a Canadian reporter, who was in a serious condition.
"We are being surrounded. We are being crushed. The soldiers are closing in on us. This is not a civil war yet, but it's very, very cruel," Weng Tojirakarn, a protest leader, told The Associated Press.
Fighting has now killed 37 people and injured hundreds since the Red Shirts, mostly rural poor, began camping in the capital on March 12, in a bid to force out Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva. They claim his coalition government came to power illegitimately through manipulation of the courts and the backing of the powerful military, which in 2006 forced the populist premier favored by the Red Shirts, Thaksin Shinawatra, from office in a coup.
Last week, Abhisit offered November elections, raising hopes that a compromise could be reached with the Red Shirts, who have been demanding immediate elections. Those hopes were dashed after Red Shirt leaders made more demands.

Late Thursday, the army moved to seal off the Red Shirt encampment in an upscale commercial district of the capital. Some 10,000 protesters, women and children among them, have crammed into the area.
"Our policy is not to disperse the protesters," government spokesman Panitan Wattanayagorn said late Friday. He said their mission was to set up checkpoints and "tighten" the area around the protest, but "there have been attempts to agitate the officers."


In later speech on national TV, Panitan said security forces hadn't entered the demonstration area but were attacked and forced to protect themselves.
He said security efforts would be stepped up in the coming days and "many areas would be under control soon." As he said that a large explosion rang out in central Bangkok.
Friday's violence was initially centered on a small area home to several foreign embassies, including those of the U.S. and Japan which were forced to close, but by midafternoon had spread around the 1-square-mile (3-square-kilometer) protest zone barricaded with bamboo stakes and tires. The British, New Zealand and the Dutch embassies, which are in the vicinity, also were shut.
Soldiers crouched behind a raised road divider in one area and fired rubber bullets, live ammunition and tear gas shells. Army vehicles were seen speeding on deserted streets littered with stones and debris. Protesters retreated and hurled rocks and insults.
Among Friday's casualties, a Thai cameraman from the VoiceTV news website was shot in his left thigh and a photographer for Matichon newspaper was shot in the leg, the news outlets said.
Canadian freelance journalist Nelson Rand, who was working for France 24 news channel, was hit by three bullets, the channel reported. One bullet perforated his leg, another hit his abdomen, another hit his wrist. He underwent surgery and was recovering.
Friday morning, protesters captured and vandalized two military water cannon trucks at a key intersection in the business district, just outside the Red Shirt encampment. They ripped the cannon from its moorings and used its plastic barrel to shoot firecrackers from behind a sandbag bunker they had commandeered from soldiers.
They later set fire to a police bus that sent thick plumes of smoke into the sky. Soldiers fired automatic rifles repeatedly.
Soldiers used a loudspeaker to send a message to the Red Shirts: "We are the people's army. We are just doing our duty for the nation. Brothers and sisters, let's talk together."
But a group of aggressive young protesters approached them on motorcycles and on foot, shouting obscenities. Two soldiers fired shotguns into the air and they pulled back but kept up their abuse.
Major roads around the protest site were closed to traffic, and the city's subway and elevated train shut early. Many shops in the capital also were shuttered.
"I've never seen anything like this," said Kornvika Klinpraneat, 28, a worker at a mini-mart near the protest area. "This is like a civil war. The battle is being fought in the middle of a city with innocent people being injured and killed."
The renegade army general Khattiya, who is accused of creating a paramilitary force for the Red Shirts, was shot in the head while talking to reporters just inside the perimeter of the protesters' encampment. Director of the hospital treating him, Dr. Chaiwan Charoenchokthawee, said Friday that Khattiya "could die at any moment."
It was not known who shot Khattiya, better known by the nickname Seh Daeng. But the Red Shirts blamed a government sniper.
"This is illegal use of force ordered by Abhisit Vejjajiva," said Arisman Pongruengrong, a Red Shirt leader. "Seh Daeng was shot by a government sniper. This is clearly a use of war weapons on the people."
The army denied it tried to kill Khattiya.
"It has nothing to do with the military. It has never been our policy (to assassinate). We have been avoiding violence," said Col. Sansern Kaewkamnerd, an army spokesman. Only a forensic investigation will determine who was behind the shooting, he said.
The two-day clashes marked the worst continuous episode of violence since April 10, when 25 people were killed and more than 800 injured in clashes between Red Shirts and troops in Bangkok's historic area. Sporadic clashes have occurred since then.
The Red Shirts see Abhisit's government as serving an elite insensitive to the plight of most Thais. The protesters include many supporters of former prime minister Thaksin whose allies won elections in 2007 after his ouster. Two subsequent pro-Thaksin governments were disbanded by court rulings before Abhisit was elected by Parliament.
Thaksin, a former telecommunications billionaire who fled overseas to avoid a corruption conviction, has publicly encouraged the protests and is widely believed to be helping bankroll them. He claims to be a victim of political persecution.

The Justice Department...incompetence at the top!

Here's Holder on April 27, 2010: Holder said "the law is an unfortunate one that will be subject to potential abuse" and that the Justice Department is "considering a court challenge."
...and when push comes to shove, here's holder stating he hasn't even read the law...

Meanwhile we have all the misfits stating, "We need immigration reform now!"  Plus the following:
Napolitano said the law "signals a frustration with the failure of the Congress" to move on immigration reform. 
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has made the calculated decision to promise to take up immigration reform legislation this year. 
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) said Tuesday he thinks Arizona's new immigration law is unconstitutional...  (Note: Graham should take a walk...along a gangplank!)
Sen. John McCain, a Republican from Arizona, similarly told the CBS "Early Show" today that border security must be increased before a bill passes. (Note: McCain should have retired ten years ago!)
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told reporters today that he agrees that borders must stay secure.  "We cannot have people coming into the United States of America that are not authorized to do so.", he said.  (Note: Then why haven't you done anything about it Hoyer? ...idiot!)
Not a one of the aforementioned traitors (that's exactly right! "TRAITORS!" want immigration reform and furthermore we don't need reform.  We need enforcement!  The laws currently on the books are sufficient if only they were enforced!  This is not a Democrat or Republican issue, its a New World Order issue.  Bush, Carter, Clinton, Obama, et al nauseum, refused to close the borders on their respective watches.  And before Obama's term is up he will do absolutely nothing to improve the situation.  All these people talk but not a one has the intestinal fortitude to act responsible by securing the borders.  In fact all of them should be arrested for violating the law.  Back in 2006 when they had the chance to arrest Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy for aiding and abetting illegal immigration the powers to be sat on the sidelines as if to encourage more law breakers...and today's top law enforcers will continue the practice.  Eric Holder should be in the house of corrections for earlier misdeeds (dismissing criminal charges against the ACORN goons) but as the Nation's top law enforcement officer he will do his best to justify criminal behavior.  Did someone once say, "We are a nation of laws.", if so, we are now a nation run by outlaws.  ~  Norman E. Hooben

I've said this before and I'll say it again, "There has to be an awakening with the American people if they want to continue being Americans. Obama has an agenda that will eventually sell this country out to the United Nations.  This is not just his agenda.  It was the main behind the scenes event for Carter, Clinton, and both Bush presidents.  Each one played a particular role whether they called it a "World View", "New World Order" or "Security and Prosperity Agreement" their scheme was well planned...and it continues today." 
It make me nervous each time I hear of a new G8 or G20 Summit for that's where "next-steps" are planned.  In fact there is a G20 scheduled event later this year in Toronto, Canada.  Obama will definitely be there so watch out! 
Back to this awakening that I mentioned above... Along with any serious thought of hoping to vote him out of office in 2012 there should be a move on to drive him out of the White House before he does any more damage.  My view is that he should be thrown in prison...for the rest of his life!  And if you cannot see any reason as to why not, then you are not only naive, you are part of the problem... and you don't give a hoot for your country! ...and these are not idle words, "Arrest the SOB!" ...arrest the whole bunch!

Hawaii B O ...Birth Ordinance

Though the new law in Hawaii seeks to reduce the so-called birthers requests for proof of citizenship it is entirely unnecessary and further implicates the governor in a cover-up conspiracy.  C'mon people wake up!  Now what sane person would spend millions of dollars fighting this relatively simple request to show the American people a legitimate birth certificate.  Further, since when does the entire American population have to depend on Doctor Fukino's statement?  But enough of all that!
It doesn't matter where Obama was born!  He is definitely not an American! Just look what all he has done to destroy this once great country...he's a New World Order wannabee...but more effective at it than his predecessors.  ~ Norman E. Hooben

A new law in Hawaii is aimed at 'birthers' who claim Barack Obama is ineligible to be president.

The following from: New York Daily News

HONOLULU - It's now law in Hawaii that the state government can ignore repetitive requests for President Obama's birth certificate.

Republican Gov. Linda Lingle signed into law Wednesday a bill allowing state government agencies not to respond to follow-up requests for information if they determine that the subsequent request is duplicative or substantially similar to a previous request.
The law is aimed at so-called "birthers," who claim Obama is ineligible to be president. They contend the Democratic president was born outside the United States, and therefore doesn't meet a constitutional requirement for being president.
Lingle didn't elaborate on her reasons for signing the bill, but state Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino previously issued statements saying that she's seen vital records that prove Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen.
Both Fukino and the state registrar of vital statistics have verified that the Health Department holds Obama's original birth certificate.
Health Department officials supported the law because the state still gets between 10 and 20 e-mails seeking verification of Obama's birth each week, most of them from outside Hawaii.
A few of those requesters file repeated inquiries seeking the same information, even after they're told state law bars release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.
Advocates for openness in government oppose the law because they fear it could be used to ignore legitimate requests for information.

Have We Gone Too Far?

_______________________

Free Cell Phones for Unemployed 


Unemployed people have many financial difficulties.  They need to save as much money as they can for just basic necessities such as food and shelter.  When people are unemployed, luxury goes out the door first.  Then gradually other things begin to go too such as a cell phone plan.  Although a few people may consider cell phones a luxury, it is actually a necessity.  Without a cell phone, unemployed people have a harder time getting a job.  When people apply for jobs, they need to leave a phone number where they can be reached.  Without a cell phone, a job opportunity would be missed. 
Fortunately for unemployed people, they can get free cell phones for unemployed people.  These free cell phones are supported by the federal government and provided by Safelink Wireless.  Along with the free cell phone, they also provide free airtime as well.  This government supported cell phone program is similar to other income based programs.  There are a few things you need to have in order to qualify for free cell phones for unemployed people. 
First, if you are already participating in other state or federal assistance programs such as food stamps or housing assistance, then you would qualify for a free cell phone.  Your household income should also be 135% or below the poverty guidelines.  Finally, you must also be living in a state that currently offers this program.  
Go to Safelink Wireless and fill out the applicable applications.  Submit proof that you are eligible for free cell phones for unemployed people.  You should be getting your free phone soon after.  Remember that you only get about 60 to 70 minutes of free airtime each month.  So don’t go using up all your minutes on chatting.  It should be used for real emergencies or for your job search.  Also, any minutes that you save from that month rolls over to the next month.  Each household is only allowed one free cell phone.  Should you cancel the contract later on, you can still keep the phone for free.  Safelink Wireless also needs to check your eligibility every year before you sign again.

Coming Soon - The Fall Of The Republic...here's a couple of reasons why...and an outside chance of saving her!

Psst! Do you want to know how you can save the Republic for which we once stood?  You can save the Republic if you re-instate the original 13th Amendment.  Before you go off on a tangent read the following: (from 2moment.net


WHERE DID THE 13th AMENDMENT GO?

The original 13th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America was called the "Titles of Nobility Amendment." It read: “If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall, without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.”

This amendment is not in our current constitution, so where did it go?  In the winter of 1983, archival research expert David Dodge, and former Baltimore police investigator Tom Dunn, were searching for evidence of government corruption in public records stored in the Belfast Library on the coast of Maine.  By chance, they discovered the library's oldest authentic copy of the Constitution of the United States (printed in 1825). Both men were stunned to see this document included a 13th Amendment that no longer appears on current copies of the Constitution. Moreover, after studying the Amendment's language and historical context, they
realized the principle intent of this "missing" 13th Amendment was to prohibit lawyers from serving in government.

So began a seven year, nationwide search for the truth surrounding the most bizarre Constitutional puzzle in American history – the unlawful removal of a ratified Amendment from the Constitution of the United States. Since 1983, Dodge and Dunn have uncovered additional copies of the Constitution with the "missing" 13th Amendment printed in at least eighteen separate publications by ten
different states and territories over 4 decades from 1822 to 1860.

In 1812, the votes of 13 states were needed to ratify an amendment.  The federal government admits the Titles of Nobility Amendment was ratified by 12:

1. Maryland (December 25, 1810)
2. Kentucky (January 31, 1811)
3. Ohio (January 31, 1811)
4. Delaware (February 2, 1811)
5. Pennsylvania (February 6, 1811)
6. New Jersey (February 13, 1811)
7. Vermont (October 24, 1811)
8. Tennessee (November 21, 1811)
9. Georgia (November 22, 1811)
10. North Carolina (December 23, 1811)
11. Massachusetts (February 27, 1812)
12. New Hampshire (December 9, 1812)

But the amendment was also ratified by Virginia (state # 13): Virginia ratified the amendment on February 7, 1812. The state's official records were burned when the British set fire to Washington and Richmond during the War of 1812, but numerous other records prove the amendment was ratified. Nevertheless, the federal government insists the amendment never became law.

Below is a scan from a copy of "Military Laws of the United States,"  by Trueman Cross.  Published in 1825 by Edward de Krafft of Washington. Many books and official government documents printed between about 1820 to 1860 contain the original 13th amendment.  It was never repealed, so where did it go?


On December 6, 1865, the present 13th amendment was added to the U.S. Constitution. That amendment deals with slavery. But it should have been the 14th amendment. Instead, history was re-written, and the original 13th amendment was removed from the public record.

The original 13th amendment put teeth in a provision already in the constitution--the prohibition against American citizens holding titles and honors. The  constitution prohibits it, but the thirteenth amendment designated a penalty. Loss of citizenship.  This amendment was stricken from the record by lawyers in America.

Did you know that when American lawyers become members of the BAR
Association they are being recognized by the British Accredited Registry? That's what "BAR" stands for. So, they join a foreign organization and are awarded the title "Esquire." This is illegal under the constitution, and if the original 13th amendment were in effect, all members of the BAR would lose their citizenship.
All the evidence is in place to prove that the 13th amendment was illegally removed from the U.S. constitution, but the federal court system and lawyers are not going to address this issue. Only the states can address it, and YOU need to start the ball rolling by pointing out this fraud to your state officials. This crime can only be undone at the state level. Point it out to your elected representatives and ask them to do whatever's necessary to re-instate the original 13th amendment to the constitution.

Good luck on those last two  sentences!  But with this kind of knowledge, there's an outside chance that we may survive...see what you can do.  ~ Norm

Obama: Fulfilling My Vision Of America

Lets just hope he never has to announce, "Mission accomplished!" ~ Norman E. Hooben

The following from: American Partisan
DIVIDE AND CONQUER by Timothy Rollins, Editor and Columnist
How Obama manipulates the media and uses White Guilt to turn the Constitution on its head in fulfilling his vision for an American USSR
May 12, 2010
Timothy Rollins - Beneath the SurfaceOver the years, the one Washington trait most sickening to America is the 'usual way of doing business.' All 'business as usual' accomplished was landing us in a financial crater from which we may never emerge; for that, we can thank George W. Bush, and especially Barack Obama.
The mega-trillion dollar financial hole in which we now reside came about because two chief executives have no measurable knowledge of responsible governance. Most people over 40 undoubtedly remember that when the stock market lost 22 percent of its value in a single trading session of 6½ hours back in 1987, the banks did not ask for help, nor did President Reagan offer any. The movers and shakers knew they screwed up and took their lumps; unaided, the economy quickly recovered. The alleged 'recovery' taking place now is at best a watered-down version of what we would be enjoying, were it not for governmental meddling and interference. Ronald Reagan said it best at his 1981 inauguration, "In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem." This wisdom seems to have been completely ignored by the current group of misfits presently holding the White House under siege.
Obama's Toilet PaperWhereas Reagan allowed free market forces to right its own ship, Team Obama is bound and determined to keep as many banks chained to them as possible, so as to effect a de-facto nationalization of the United States banking system, all as part of his insatiable need for power and control, in much the same manner as cartoon characters Pinky and the Brain. Such also brings with it an eerie resemblance to the worst qualities of both characters. Obama seems to have Brain's ears, and Pinky's intelligence, in other words, a complete lack thereof, as it pertains to what makes America the greatest success story in world history. It's not about governance with Obama and his string-pullers; it's about control, pure and simple.
Rather than rely on traditional 'common sense', Obama has thrown all caution to the wind and is pursuing - with a vengeance - his own vision of the Soviet Union, only in this case it would the United States Socialist Republics (USSR). Obama looks upon the Constitution as nothing more than Kleenex to wipe his nose, or worse, as toilet paper, as so aptly illustrated in any of a number of images available online (right).
First, Obama went after General/Government Motors and Chrysler, and for lack of a better word, nationalized two-thirds of the American car industry by way of 'bailout'. He also ran through Congress by way of whatever leverage he could assemble, a nationalized health care plan, despite the well-known fact that the models of Canada and Great Britain - heavily hyped by Candidate Obama as models of success - and which are now facing potential insolvency because of a fatally-flawed economic model run by government accountants and not by health care providers with patient advocates and other appropriate checks and balances. Such a notion of checks and balances repulses this current administration, more so than in the Clinton administration. Team Obama does as they please, without regard to the rule of law or established legal protocols.
On legislative matters, Obama bullied Congress into going along with his agenda; to include offering bribes and kickbacks like the 'Cornhusker Kickback' and other multi-million dollar bones thrown both at Ben Nelson and Louisiana's Mary Landrieu. When Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY) refused to 'go along', Obama's leg-breaker-in-chief Rahm Emmanuel engaged in a power play that forced Massa from the House in disgrace prior to the vote. It is not at all surprising the White House sat on that information until its use became convenient for them. Again, my point here is how a whole lot of Americans - in addition to myself - are tired of the 'business as usual' and 'pay-to-play' philosophies of both parties that has driven our nation to the edge of ruin.
These are the antics that set in place the wheels for the birth of the modern Tea Party, which like its colonial counterpart, had said 'Enough!'; and it is people like those in the Modern Tea Party who will again rescue this nation from the gross ineptitude, recklessness and lawlessness that seems to ooze both from the White House and the halls of Congress, and which now threatens to contaminate the Supreme Court through the nomination of an unqualified Elena Kagan to its ranks.
And this is one nomination that MUST NOT be allowed to secure Senate approval. ***

Sir Winston Interrupts The Senator

TucsonCitizen.com

State Senator Sylvia Allen responds to SB1070

AZ State Senator Sylvia Allen 
I’m Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen. I want to explain SB 1070 for which I voted yes. Rancher Robert Krentz was murdered by the drug cartel on his ranch a month ago. I participated in a senate hearing two weeks ago on the border violence, here is just some of the highlights from those who testified.
The people who live within 60 to 80 miles of the Arizona/Mexico Border have for years been terrorized and have pleaded for help to stop the daily invasion of humans who cross their property . One Rancher testified that 300 to 1200 people a DAY come across his ranch vandalizing his property, stealing his vehicles and property, cutting down his fences, and leaving trash. In the last two years he has found 17 dead bodies and two Koran bibles. Another rancher testified that daily drugs are brought across his ranch in a military operation. A point man with a machine gun goes in front, 1/2 mile behind are the guards fully armed, 1/2 mile behind them are the drugs, behind the drugs 1/2 mile are more guards. These people are violent and they will kill anyone who gets in the way. This was not the only rancher we heard that day that talked about the drug trains. One man told of two illegal’s who came upon his property one shot in the back and the other in the arm by the drug runners who had forced them to carry the drugs and then shot them. Daily they listen to gun fire during the night it is not safe to leave his family alone on the ranch and they can’t leave the ranch for fear of nothing being left when they come back.
The border patrol is not on the border. They have set up 60 miles away with check points that do nothing to stop the invasion. They are not allowed to use force in stopping anyone who is entering. They run around chasing them, if they get their hands on them then they can take them back across the border. Federal prisons have over 35% illegal’s and 20% of Arizona prisons are filled with illegal’s. In the last few years 80% of our law enforcement that have been killed or wounded have been by an illegal. The majority of people coming now are people we need to be worried about. The ranchers told us that they have seen a change in the people coming they are not just those who are looking for work and a better life.
The Federal Government has refused for years to do anything to help the border states . We have been over run and once they are here we have the burden of funding state services that they use. Education costs have been over a billion dollars. The healthcare cost billions of dollars. Our State is broke, $3.5 billion deficit and we have many serious decisions to make. One is that we do not have the money to care for any who are not here legally. It has to stop.
The border can be secured. We have the technology and we have the ability to stop this invasion. We must know who is coming and they must come in an organized manner legally so that we can assimilate them into our population and protect the sovereignty of our country. We are a nation of laws. We have a responsibility to protect our citizens and to protect the integrity of our country and the government which we live under. I would give amnesty today to many, but here is the problem,
Excuse me for interrupting Senator, amnesty compounds the problem...never, never give in!
we dare not do this until the Border is secure. It will do no good to give them amnesty because thousands will come behind them and we will be over run to the point that there will no longer be the United States of America but a North American Union of open borders. I ask you what form of government will we live under? How long will it be before we will be just like Mexico , Canada or any of the other Central American or South American country? We have already lost our language, everything must be printed in Spanish. We have already lost our history, it is no longer taught in our schools, and we have lost our borders.
The leftist media has distorted what SB 1070 will do. It is not going to set up a Nazi Germany. Are you kidding? The ACLU and the leftist courts will do everything to protect those who are here illegally, but it was an effort to try and stop illegal’s from setting up businesses, and employment, and receiving  state services and give the ability to local law enforcement when there is probable cause, like a traffic stop, to determine if they are here legally. Federal law is very clear, if you are here on a visa you must have your papers on you at all times. That is the law. In Arizona all you need to show you are a legal citizen is a driver license, MVD identification card, Native American Card, or a Military ID. This is what you need to vote or get a hunting license. So nothing new has been added to this law. No one is going to be stopped walking down the street.  The Socialists who are in power in DC are angry because we dare try and do something.The Socialists wants us to just let them come. They want the “Transformation” to continue.
Maybe it is too late to save America . Maybe we are not worthy of freedom anymore. But as an elected official I must try to do what I can to protect our Constitutional Republic . Living in America is not a right just because you can walk across the border. Being an American is a responsibility and it comes by respecting and upholding the Constitution, the law of our land, which says what you must do to be a citizen of this country. FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.
Senator Sylvia Allen

Massachusetts Acting Dumb...and dumber!

Apparently the folks in Amherst, Boston, Lawrence, and Springfield never bothered reading the United States Constitution; specifically Amendment XIV Section 1. 
"...No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty,or property without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." 
 So in essence, the above mentioned municipalities are attempting to abridge the freedoms of the people of Arizona by punishing them economically (see artical below) for simply echoing a federal law that no administration has the courage to enforce. 
"The law “legally” targets one and only one group of individuals. In this respect the law is identical to the Federal Immigration Laws."  The Immigration Debate – Arizona’s Law – Facts From Fiction: Are you tired of being lied to?  McAuley'sWorld
I should also make the point that those who encourage illegal immigration in any form whatsoever are opening the door to war...like this guy here (see the video): The Real Face Of Illegal Immigration  ~ Norman E. Hooben

Mass. municipalities eye Arizona boycott
By May 10, 2010

BOSTON - Four more Massachusetts municipalities are considering resolutions calling for an economic boycott against Arizona in protest of the state's recently passed controversial immigration law.
Elected officials in Worchester, Lawrence, Springfield, and Amherst say they are drafting measures similar to the one Boston's City Council passed last week that asks city officials to identify city contracts and purchasing agreements with Arizona and Arizona-based companies, and end them immediately.

The Worcester City Council is scheduled Tuesday to vote on its resolution. Councilors in Lawrence and Springfield are drafting their measures and a member of the Amherst town meeting plans on asking the body to also take up the cause.

The Arizona law enacted last month requires police to question people about their immigration status if there's reason to suspect they're in the country illegally. The law has drawn anger and protest nationally over concerns it would lead to racial profile of Latinos in the state.
Last week, a coalition of national Latino groups called for a boycott of Arizona over the law and the Phoenix Suns wore their "Los Suns" jersey in the Western Conference semifinal matchup against the San Antonio Spurs in protest over the law.
Worcester Councilor Frederick Rushton said he decided to sponsor a resolution after hearing the "racial overtones" of critics angry at Boston's decision to pass its measure.
"People expressing racial comments is an unfortunate side effect of all of this," said Rushton. "(But) we feel this is racial profiling and it needs to be addressed. We need to take a stand."
Rushton compared the efforts to the boycott movement in the 1980s against South Africa under apartheid. "Deinvestment works," he said.
But Sam Rosario, a Worcester activist and talk show host on 830 WCRN-AM, said the Arizona resolutions in Massachusetts are largely symbolic and do nothing to help Latinos who legally reside here.
"Arizona is doing what's right for Arizona," Rosario said. "Worcester should do what's right for Worcester."
Rosario said it was "hypocritical" that city councilors would support the Arizona resolution when they've been resistant to supporting changes to city ordinances that would help livery cab drivers, most of who are Latino immigrants.
Ken Mandile, president of the Worcester Tea Party, said Tea Party members plan to protest outside of Worcester City Hall and some will try to address councilors before their vote.
"We think this is an abuse of power by the city council," he said. "This really isn't their business."
Giovanna Negretti, executive director of Oiste?, a Massachusetts group that encourages Latinos to run for office, said supporters of Worcester's resolution also plan to attend Tuesday's meeting and will support other city councils that seeks to pass a similar resolution against Arizona.
"This is not about resolving what is happening in Arizona," said Negretti. "We have to speak out or Arizona-like laws could spread like wildfire across the United States."

What's next? ...tax the crap!

Say, I got an idea the PRO's (Pelosi, Reid, & Obama) will love.  I was just reading through the comment section of the following article...you know when you sometimes scan the words a little to fast and then you have to stop and go back and read  again...that's what happened here:
 (I read this part too fast) "Next Democrat move == tax the crap out of ..."
That's it!  Tax the crap!  They're already threatening to tax the carbon dioxide we exhale, a product that keeps Mother Nature in balance and when utilized by various plant life provides us with the oxygen we need to sustain life.  But crap, that's another story!  Who needs more crap?  They won't let us use it for fertilizer in our veggie gardens (except if you live in China or Africa) for fear of getting some crappy disease.  So crap is a complete waste; no useful after life once expelled from the body. Then (if we live in the city) we have to process the crap in the municipal sewer system rendering it safe from harmful effects...although we still get a lot of the unprocessed crap from the mouths of politicians that radiate harmful effects for many years (this kind of radiation has a half-life of an unknown quantity).  So we have to tax the crap we have to process.  We'll call it the Crap Process Tax...the more you crap, the more the tax collector can wipe you clean! ~  Norman E.

Mass. device firms see health law as burden

Say tax will force cost cuts

By Jay Fitzgerald 
Massachusetts medical-device companies say they’ll cut back on operational costs - and jobs - after a planned 2.3 percent tax on their products is implemented in 2013, according to a new survey.
The Massachusetts Medical Device Industry Council, which held its annual meeting yesterday in Boston, said about 90 percent of the 100 medical-device firms said they would reduce costs due to the new tax tucked into the recently passed health-care reform bill.
The tax - imposed to help pay for the massive health-care industry overhaul and expansion - is “of the greatest concern” to a majority of its members, the survey found.
About 70 percent of the survey respondents said future innovation will be hurt by a new federal “physician sunshine bill.” The bill will require medical-device firms to report their marketing expenditures on physicians, and a recently passed gift-ban law in Massachusetts.
About 41 percent of the council’s members said the new health-care bill will help the industry by expanding the number of people getting health-care insurance.
But 42 percent said the new health-care reform bill won’t increase their business, the survey found.

This is a great industry that that still manufactures in the U.S. Leave it to the lefties to hate this successful industry and punish it. Do you want you defibrillator made in China? Your dialysis machine?

Democrats' policies costing the US more jobs.

Other recent examples: Post Office closed on Saturday, approximately 40,000 jobs. Have you noticed that geezers almost ready for retirement are now working mail delivery in many communities?

Also, the PACT act ... putting vendors and their employees out of business on the Internet. PACT act does not allow cigarettes to be mailed to vendors' customers any longer,

How many vendors lost their businesses and how many more postal workers are out of jobs?

Democrats are costing us jobs. And, the above are just 3 examples, medical device makers, postal workers, and cigarette vendors and staffs on the Internet.

Next Democrat move == tax the crap out of Internet vendors to create an equal playing field.

Whenever you hear the phrase *an equal playing field" hold on to your wallets.

Don't worry! Our Governor will fix everything by taxing anything that takes up space at a rate of 6.25%. That includes items already taxed, like alcohol/cigarettes/tires, and your last years income tax return.

Once again we bring you an update on the effects of ObamaCare, and once again those effects are negative. According to a survey taken of medical device manufacturers in Massachusetts, 90% of them are preparing for cutbacks and layoffs because of a new tax that will be levied on them starting in 2013.

So all of you ObamaCare supporters, please explain to me how this can be a good thing.


It isn't a good thing, of course, which is kind of my whole point. A prescription of higher taxes and government control of health insurance and medical treatment is unlikely to "save the patient." As a matter of fact, THAT prescription is likely to cause a Code Blue for our entire health care system.

And that's NEVER a good sign...
