Wednesday, July 15, 2009 - UNEMPLOYMENT TO BE HIGH FOR YEARS.... we just need more ILLEGALS then!

UNEMPLOYMENT TO REMAIN HIGH.... hardly news to most Americans. So, explain to me why these lifer-politicians, like Feinstein, Boxer, Pelosi, Waxman, Reid, and now Obama want to keep giving our jobs away?

In Los Angeles 47% of those employed are ILLEGALS. The invasion, by invitation of these (aforementioned) LA RAZA endorsed politicians, has caused the destruction of the American middle-class, and depressed wages for AMERICAN workers $200 - $300 BILLION PER YEAR.... but that’s not all! It’s the American middle class that ends up paying the taxes to support the MEXICAN WELFARE STATE! In Los Angeles ILLEGALS, collect $40 MILLION PER MONTH, YES, MONTH in welfare!

Fed: unemployment will top 10 percent this year
By JEANNINE AVERSA, AP Economics Writer
Wednesday, July 15, 2009
(07-15) 13:37 PDT WASHINGTON, (AP) --
The Federal Reserve expects the economy this year will sink at a slower pace than it previously thought, but that unemployment will top 10 percent and remain high for the next few years, according to a new forecast released Wednesday.
The Fed now predicts the economy will shrink between 1 and 1.5 percent this year, an improvement from its old forecast issued in May. At that time, the Fed projected the economy would contract between 1.3 and 2 percent.
The upgrade — which helped major stock indicators jump about 3 percent and the Dow Jones industrial average to add 257 points — comes from the expectation that the economy's downhill slide in the first half of 2009 wasn't as bad as previously thought. The Fed said the economy should start growing again in the second half of this year, although the pace is likely to be plodding.
In fact, most Fed policymakers said it could take "five or six years" for the economy and the labor market to get back on a path of full health in the long term. And, most officials saw "the economy as still quite weak and vulnerable to further adverse shocks."
Against that backdrop, the Fed's forecast for unemployment this year worsened. The central bank predicted the jobless rate could rise as high as 10.1 percent, compared with the previous forecast of 9.6 percent.
The nation's unemployment rate climbed to 9.5 percent in June, a 26-year high.
The predictions are based on what the Fed calls its "central tendency," which exclude the three highest and three lowest forecasts made by Fed officials. The central bank also gives a range of all the forecasts. That range showed that some officials expect the jobless rate could rise as high as 10.5 percent this year, and 10.6 percent in 2010. The post-World War II high was 10.8 percent at the end of 1982, when the country had suffered through a severe recession. The jobless rate averaged 5.8 percent last year.
For 2010, the Fed predicted the economy would grow between 2.1 and 3.3 percent. That's a slight upgrade from its old forecast of growth between 2 and 3 percent.
The Fed's estimate is based on comparing projected activity in the fourth quarter of one year to the same period a year earlier. The economy dipped 0.8 percent in 2008 by that measure.
Still, it would mark a slow recovery and that will keep unemployment elevated well into 2011, the Fed said. Companies won't be in any mood to ramp up hiring until they are certain that any recovery has staying power. Some Fed officials predicted the jobless rate could hover in the 8 percent range or as high as 9.2 percent in 2011.
To help lift the country out of recession, the Fed has slashed interest rates to a record low near zero. In March, the Fed launched a $1.2 trillion effort to drive down interest rates to revive lending and get Americans to spend more freely. Those actions — along with President Barack Obama's $787 billion stimulus package of tax cuts and increased government spending — should help the economy return to growth in the second half of this year.
Fed officials at their June meeting observed "the economic contraction was slowing and that the decline in activity could cease before long." Consumer spending appeared to have stabilized, new-home sales were flattening out and declines in capital spending did not look as severe as they had at the beginning of the year.
At the June meeting, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and his colleagues pledged to hold its key bank lending rate near zero for an extended period to help brace the economy. Many analysts believe the Fed will leave rates at record lows through the rest of this year.
The Fed last month also decided against expanding its $1.2 trillion program of buying government bonds and mortgage-backed securities to drive down rates on mortgages and other consumer debt.
Part of the reason the Fed stayed the course was out of fear that expanding the programs could stir up investor fears that the central bank's aggressive actions could spur inflation later on, documents of the closed-door June meeting indicated. In addition, "it seemed that economic activity was in the process of leveling out."
On the inflation front, Fed policymakers did bump up their forecasts for this year and next. The Fed expects inflation to rise between 1 and 1.4 percent in 2009, reflecting the influence of higher oil and commodity prices. The old forecast called for a gain of between 0.6 and 0.9 percent this year.
Even with the projected pickup, the Fed believes inflation "would remain subdued for some time" and be lower than the 1.9 percent increase logged in 2008. The sluggish recovery, idle plants, a weak employment market and cautious consumers will restrain companies from jacking up prices.
Next year, inflation should rise between 1.2 and 1.8 percent, the Fed said. That's up from the old forecast of between a 1 and 1.6 percent gain.
Several Fed participants, though, worried that investors and consumers might start to expect that prices will march higher if the central bank's aggressive steps to stimulate the economy "were not unwound in a timely fashion as the economy recovers."

Illegal aliens have turned our roads into killing fields
July 12, 7:18 AM · Dave Gibson - Norfolk Crime Examiner

On June 8, 2009 Lori Donohue and her daughter Kayla were walking through the parking lot at the Seven Stars School of Performing Arts, in Brewster, NY where 8-year-old Kayla had just finished a dance class, when they were killed by a drunk-driving illegal alien.

Guatemalan national Zacaria Conces-Garcia, 35 who had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit, lost control of his Ford F-350 pick-up truck and came speeding through the parking lot, hitting both Lori and Kayla.

Little Kayla died at the scene, while her mother died later at Westchester Medical center.

Conces-Garica was charged with vehicular homicide.

Lori and Kayla were buried together in the same casket. Andrew Guzi, funeral director at Beecher Funeral Home said: "The family said they wanted Kayla to be wrapped in her mother's arms."

Though the senseless loss of a little girl is a crushing tragedy, this story is one told all too often in this country.

On September 10, 2008, the parents of 3-year-old Marten Kudlis buried their son at Fairmount Cemetery, after he was killed while waiting for his ice cream in a Denver Baskin and Robbins.

An SUV speeding through the intersection of Havana and Mississippi, with Guatemalan national Francis Hernandez at the wheel, slammed into a pickup truck, which was then pushed into the ice cream shop´s window. The toddler was sitting at a table in front of that window, and was sent flying as the truck came crashing through it.

After the crash, Hernandez jumped from his Chevy Suburban and fled the scene. He was later apprehended without incident.

Marten was taken to the hospital, but died a short time later due to massive internal injuries.

The two women in the pickup truck struck by Hernandez were Patricia Guntharp, 49, and Debra Serecky, 51. They were both pronounced dead at the scene.

KMGH of Denver covered the child´s funeral and reported that the first song heard during the service was Eric Clapton´s "Tears in Heaven."

In a heart wrenching display of grief and anger, Marten´s mother Marat Kudlis shouted: "That bastard!" referring to the illegal alien who killed her son. Between the tears, Marten´s father cried out: "I really loved him."

The rabbi conducting the service told the heartbroken family and friends: "This burden feels like more than we can bear because it is so sudden. It´s a parent´s worst nightmare. It does not seem fair and it is not fair to lose someone so young."

A teddy bear was placed in the tiny open casket which held Marten´s body.

Following the funeral, many of the mourners returned to the crash site, which became a makeshift memorial, filled with flowers, stuffed animals, and cards with expressions of sympathy and support for the Kudlis family.

One of those mourners, Duane Stokes, told a KMGH reporter: "I helped pull Marten out of the building. I was right there with him. He squeezed my hand. I held his hand until he passed on. My fiance and I were just saying a prayer to Marten and just getting one last glimpse of everything around here. Just to say goodbye to him."

Marten´s death hit the community hard and his funeral was attended by many people who never met him, but have been saddened and angered by his senseless death.

Hernandez who has no less than 12 aliases and two dates of birth, has been arrested 19 times since 2003. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation also confirmed that Hernandez had been arrested by nine different police departments. Despite his lengthy arrest record and illegal status in this country, Hernandez has never been deported nor have deportation proceedings ever been started against him.

The police report shows that Hernandez ran from the scene and phoned his girlfriend, Brenda Aleman, asking her to come pick him up at a local Hooter´s restaurant.

In June 2008, a six year-old girl was hit and killed while crossing the street in a suburb of Milwaukee. The man behind the wheel was previously-deported Mexican national Jose Rodriguez.

As little Mackenzie Maddox and her mother crossed the street at S. 84th St. and W. Cleveland Ave. in West Allis, WI, the car driven by Rodriguez came speeding through the intersection, striking both the little girl and her mother Andrea. Mackenzie died at the scene and her mother was taken to Froedtert Hospital, her mother survived her injuries..

Rodriguez, worked for an Oak Creek waterproofing business.

Only four months before the homicide, Rodriguez who had four prior convictions including a DUI, was identified by Immigration and Customs Enforcement as being in the country illegally and deported to Mexico.

In February 2008, four children were killed in Cottonwood, Minnesota, after their bus was hit by an illegal alien who ran a stop sign.

On a gloomy Tuesday morning, Mexican national Alianiss Nunez Morales went sailing past a stop sign on County Road 24, and right into a school bus carrying 28 Lakeview School students. The bus flipped over on its side, injuring several children and killing four.

The children who were killed in the crash were: Emilee Olson, 9; Hunter Javens, 9; Jesse Javens, 13; and Reed Stevens, 12. Four other children were hospitalized at Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Another child was transported to the Mayo Clinic.

Morales was arrested and charged with four counts of vehicular homicide as well as several misdemeanors. Apparently, she was not even licensed to drive in Mexico. Lt. Mark Peterson of the Minnesota State Patrol told reporters: "She (Morales) doesn't have a drivers' license anywhere that we're aware of."

Of course, that was not Morales' first brush with the law. In 2006 she pleaded guilty in a Chippewa County court to driving without a license.

Morales told police that she was on her way to work when she caused the fatal wreck. Despite her illegal status, she was employed by Norcraft Cabinetry in Eagan, Minn. The company's website ( displays a section entitled "Code of Business Ethics and Conduct." Within that section, the following statement is made: "All employees must respect and obey the laws of the cities, states, and countries in which we operate."

That statement seems more than a bit hypocritical coming from a company which hires illegal aliens!

In April 2007, in Virginia Beach, Va., a Mexican national named Alfredo Ramos slammed into the rear of a vehicle in which Allison Kuhnhardt and Tessa Tranchant were stopped while waiting at a traffic light. Ramos, 22 was traveling at a high rate of speed and was drunk at the time (he blew a .14 BAC). The two high school students had to be cut from their crumpled car and both later died after being taken to the hospital. Ramos suffered only a busted lip.

Though an illegal alien, Alfredo Ramos had been living in Virginia Beach for quite a while and worked at local a Mexican restaurant known as Mi Casita. Ramos had been previously convicted of three separate charges of public intoxication, identity theft, and even a DUI, but continued to live in the area. He speaks only Spanish and required an interpreter at all of his court proceedings.

The girls which Ramos killed were ages 16 and 17. Tessa Tranchant's brother Dylan had only been home from Iraq for two weeks, when his sister was killed. Dylan was tasked with identifying his little sister's body. The case gained national fame thanks to the reporting of Fox News' Bill O'Reilly.

The arrogance displayed by the illegal alien in this latest incident was the same attitude given by Ramos last year. In addition to disregard for our laws, disregard for human life seems to be a constant theme among many illegal aliens, those who hire them, and the politicians who allow them to stay here.

In 2006, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) released the findings of a study which determined that 4,745 Americans are killed annually by drunk driving illegal aliens. Most consider that to be a very conservative estimate. Currently, there are no official government statistics on the number of fatal accidents caused by illegal aliens.

*Reporter’s note: How many more of our children will have to be killed so that greedy businesses can enjoy the use of cheap labor? Ours is no longer a nation of laws. We have become a banana republic fueled by the labor of Third World invaders.

Until our elected representatives develop the courage to defend our border and actually carry-out the oath they recite before taking office…May the memories of these slain children haunt their dreams.

WASHINGTON POST Mex Agents Murdered by the dozens WHY OPEN BORDERS THEN?

12 Federal Agents Are Slain in Mexico
Toll Marks Sharp Escalation in Drug War

NUEVO CASAS GRANDES, Mexico, July 14 -- Mexican authorities said Tuesday that a super-violent drug cartel called La Familia was responsible for torturing and killing 12 federal agents whose bodies were found dumped alongside a mountain road in the western state of Michoacan late Monday.

The agents, who included one woman, had been investigating organized crime in Michoacan, where gunmen launched a series of highly coordinated commando attacks against police officers and soldiers over the weekend.

The abduction, torture and execution of such a large group of federal agents marks a steep escalation in President Felipe Calderón's war with the drug cartels. Though drug mafias often clash with local police officials they fail to intimidate or corrupt, a direct counterattack against federal forces is almost unheard-of. The 12 agents represent the highest one-day death toll for federal forces in the three-year-old drug war.

Placed beside the corpses of the agents, who were off-duty when they were abducted, was a sign threatening police, Monte Alejandro Rubido, a senior federal security official, said at a news conference.

Federal officials say they think the attacks by La Familia, a mini-cartel that announced its presence two years ago by rolling five decapitated heads into a dance hall, were carried out in retaliation for the capture of one of the group's leaders.

The attacks began at dawn Saturday in Michoacan's capital, Morelia, shortly after the arrest of Arnold Rueda Medina, reported to be the right-hand man of La Familia founder Nazario Moreno González, known as "El Mas Loco," or the Craziest One.

After La Familia gunmen were repelled in their attempt to free Rueda, they went on what police described as a shooting rampage to "avenge" his capture. The attacks, in which convoys of gunmen mounted surprise assaults on government positions in eight cities, went on for 10 hours Saturday and continued sporadically Sunday.

Mexican law enforcement officials say La Familia is a different kind of cartel, combining a code of extreme violence with a commitment to protect Michoacan residents from outsiders -- which would include federal agents and army soldiers.

Members of La Familia are recruited from rural militias and drug treatment centers. Federal authorities swept into city halls in Michoacan and arrested 10 mayors in May on suspicion of colluding with the gang.

La Familia is fighting for control of cocaine-smuggling routes that lead from the port of Lazaro Cardenas toward the United States. The group also operates clandestine methamphetamine labs and marijuana farms in the mountains.

Christian Science Monitor - MEX DRUG CARTELS LAUNCH 'Tet offensive'

Drug cartels launch Mexico's 'Tet offensive'

Gunmen shot up police stations across the country in an apparent retaliation for the arrest of a suspected leader of La Familia drug cartel.

By Sara Miller Llana | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor

Mexico City
Revenge is not a new current in Mexico's drug wars. Journalists who investigate too deeply are often killed, making Mexico one of the most dangerous places to report from. Prosecutors seeking justice often face the same fate.

But suspected members of the La Familia cartel in the state of Michoacán gave new meaning to the word over the weekend – even in hardened Mexico – after gunmen shot up police stations across the country, killing five officers and two soldiers by the time the revenge attacks were over on Saturday.

Mexican authorities say the series of assaults, among the most brazen since Mexican President Felipe Calderón launched an antidrug offensive in Mexico in December 2006, were a direct response to the arrest of one of their alleged leaders early Saturday.

Mexico's 'Tet offensive'?

It was characterized as a Mexican version of the "Tet offensive" by one columnist – a turning point in a nation's loss of faith that Mexico can come out from under the force of organized crime. And that questioning is perhaps no greater than in Michoacán, Mr. Calderón's home state, where his military effort began, and where a grenade was launched in a public plaza last year.

"This attack and [the grenade incident] are not just simply examples of gang violence. They have a much more profound impact on the public psyche," says Bruce Bagley, a Latin America drugs expert at the University of Miami. "They erode confidence in Calderón's strategy and the legitimacy of the state response."

Brutal retaliation

Authorities told the Associated Press that the attacks were a retaliatory response to the arrest of Arnoldo Rueda Medina, believed to be a head of the La Familia cartel, on Saturday morning in Morelia, the capital of Michoacán.

Throughout that day, gunmen attacked federal police stations in seven cities across the state, as well as in Guanajuato and Guerrero states. The following day a hotel in Michoacán, in the port city of Lazaro Cardenas, was shot into but no one was injured.

Two men have since been arrested in the attacks against government authorities, among the worst the nation has seen since Calderón sent 45,000 troops across the country to lessen the grip of organized crime that reaches into police forces, government institutions, and mountain villas across the country. Some 11,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence since 2006.

But even here, where beheadings and public death threats are a new norm, the weekend attacks seemed to raise the stakes.

Writing in the Milenio newspaper, columnist Ciro Gómez Leyva described the public mood: "In the war against the narcos, July 11 seems like a kind of Tet offensive, the synchronized, made-for-Hollywood offensive by the ... North Vietnamese Army that, despite being characterized as a military disaster, created the perception that the otherwise invincible US army would never win in Vietnam."

Another blow to Calderón

The attacks over the weekend will do little to bolster Calderón's national action party, which already fared poorly well in legislative elections last week.

"The [drug gangs] are demonstrating to the government that their security strategy has only limited impact," says Mr. Bagley. "They demonstrated that they have ongoing capacity to intimidate, coerce, and carry out violence against police despite the militarization."

This message resounds in Michoacán, where the military has manned the streets the longest, and where La Familia has grown into one of the nation's most powerful outfits. "In Michoacán, they have become a force to be reckoned with," says Bagley.
