OBAMA CRONY DONORS GOLDMAN SACHS CRIMINAL BANKSTERS ON A ROLL!

Excerpt:



The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it's everywhere. The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money. In fact, the history of the recent financial crisis, which doubles as a history of the rapid decline and fall of the suddenly swindled dry American empire, reads like a Who's Who of Goldman Sachs graduates.



By now, most of us know the major players. As George Bush's last Treasury secretary, former Goldman CEO Henry Paulson was the architect of the bailout, a suspiciously self-serving plan to funnel trillions of Your Dollars to a handful of his old friends on Wall Street. Robert Rubin, Bill Clinton's former Treasury secretary, spent 26 years at Goldman before becoming chairman of Citigroup — which in turn got a $300 billion taxpayer bailout from Paulson. There's John Thain, the asshole chief of Merrill Lynch who bought an $87,000 area rug for his office as his company was imploding; a former Goldman banker, Thain enjoyed a multi-billion-dollar handout from Paulson, who used billions in taxpayer funds to help Bank of America rescue Thain's sorry company. And Robert Steel, the former Goldmanite head of Wachovia, scored himself and his fellow executives $225 million in golden-parachute payments as his bank was self-destructing. There's Joshua Bolten, Bush's chief of staff during the bailout, and Mark Patterson, the current Treasury chief of staff, who was a Goldman lobbyist just a year ago, and Ed Liddy, the former Goldman director whom Paulson put in charge of bailed-out insurance giant AIG, which forked over $13 billion to Goldman after Liddy came on board. The heads of the Canadian and Italian national banks are Goldman alums, as is the head of the World Bank, the head of the New York Stock Exchange, the last two heads of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York — which, incidentally, is now in charge of overseeing Goldman — not to mention …



But then, any attempt to construct a narrative around all the former Goldmanites in influential positions quickly becomes an absurd and pointless exercise, like trying to make a list of everything. What you need to know is the big picture: If America is circling the drain, Goldman Sachs has found a way to be that drain

DOES ANYONE STILL DOUBT THAT BARACK OBAMA IS A SERVANT OF HIS BANKSTER DONORS?

HE’S GIVEN THEM ANYTHING THEY DEMANDED! NO REAL REGULATION, CONTINUED NON-INTERFERENCE IN THEIR CRIME WAVES, AND NO PRISON TIME FOR HAVING DEFRAUDED AMERICAN INVESTORS OF TRILLIONS AND DESTROYING THE EQUITY IN MOST AMERICAN HOMES!



EVEN NOW, MOST AMERICAS ARE PAYING ON MORTGAGES THAT ARE WORTH HALF.



OBAMA IS ONE OF THE MOST CORRUPT POLITICIANS IN AMERICAN HISTORY.





“I’m not here to punish banks!” BARACK OBAMA, Floor of the Senate

“Records show that four out of Obama's top five contributors are employees of financial industry giants - Goldman Sachs ($571,330), UBS AG ($364,806), JPMorgan Chase ($362,207) and Citigroup ($358,054).”

“Goldman employees have maintained strategic positions within the U.S. government since 1965. Goldman hires former politicians and civil servants, as readily as it supplies them. Clinton had 8 previous Goldman employees in key decision-making positions in his Administration, Bush had 19, and Obama has 14. There is no distinguishable difference in political parties, once a donation is accepted the individual is compromised.”

IT’S RIGGED



By Al Duncan

February 25, 2011

NewsWithViews.com

Most now know that the Federal Reserve Bank (Fed), is a private central bank owned by International Bankers. Although the Fed masquerades as a Government institution it is no more a Government institution than Federal Express. Even though the Fed performs all the functions of a Central Bank, its name misleads the public into believing that it operates on their behalf.

The U.S. Constitution clearly states in Article 1 Section 8 that: “The Congress shall have Power To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures,” under the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 the private bankers can now create money, actually credit, and loan it to the U.S. with interest.

With every U.S. dollar borrowed from the Fed, a credit is recorded on the Fed’s behalf and a debit, including interest, is posted on behalf of the American public. The actual U.S. national debt owed to the International Bankers who make up the Federal Reserve Board, including the IOUs in the Social Security Fund, the IOUs in the Medicare Fund and all the rest of the debts normally uncounted in government statistics is approximately $62 Trillion.

On March 18, 1988, Ronald Reagan implemented Executive Order 12631, called The Working Group of Financial Markets; informally known as the Plunge Protection Team. Former Federal Reserve Board member Robert Heller explains E.O. 12631 in a Wall Street Journal article: “The Fed could support the stock market directly by buying market averages in the futures market in order to stabilize the market as a whole.”

To simplify Mr. Heller’s definition, E.O. 12631 enables the Fed, via the working group, to manipulate U.S. stock markets through the use of government (taxpayer) funds. The Fed can also use taxpayer money to buy stocks and other investments such as stock index futures, even though the law strictly forbids these manipulative and market-controlling acts.

On October 6, 2008, Paula Reid of CBS News stated in an article called Market Crisis of 2008, “The working group issued a statement indicating that it was taking multiple actions available to it in order to stabilize the financial system. The government (actually, the Fed) may wind up owning shares in the firms to which it has provided loans, as they will receive warrants as collateral for these loans.”

This means, the Fed, a private central bank owned and controlled by private businessmen, can at-will use taxpayer dollars to manipulate the stock market to enrich themselves.

This is Fascism, although corporatism would be a more accurate representation.

According to a government website, www.sec.gov, “The mission” of the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), “is to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation.” Since the inception of the SEC in 1934, Goldman Sachs has provided the nation with a SEC Commissioner, a Chairman of the SEC, and a Head of the SEC’s Enforcement Division.

In an article dated April 7, 2010, CBS News stated, “The revolving door between Goldman and government reveals at least forty-eight former employees, lobbyists or advisers at the highest reaches of power both in Washington and around the world.”

The CBS News article continues, “For example, former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is a former Goldman CEO; Arthur Levitt, the head of the SEC is a now a Goldman adviser; and former House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt is now a paid lobbyist for the firm.”

Goldman employees have maintained strategic positions within the U.S. government since 1965. Goldman hires former politicians and civil servants, as readily as it supplies them. Clinton had 8 previous Goldman employees in key decision-making positions in his Administration, Bush had 19, and Obama has 14. There is no distinguishable difference in political parties, once a donation is accepted the individual is compromised.

Henry Paulson was Chief Operating Officer of Goldman Sachs averaging around $37 million a year and at that time he was also the owner of approximately $700 million in Goldman Sachs’ shares. Paulson, the great public servant that he is, left Goldman Sachs multi-million dollar salary to become U.S. Secretary of the Treasury at a salary of $174,000 a year. On September 19, 2008, Paulson, along with Chairman of the Fed, Ben Bernanke, obtained $700 billion dollars from Congress. Paulson, given complete authority of this money by the House, Senate, and the president of the U.S. gave American Investment Group (AIG) $200 billion, of which AIG gave Goldman Sachs $12.9 billion, enriching Goldman Sachs shareholders, including that great public servant, Henry Paulson, handsomely.

According to New York Times, May 7, 2009, Stephen Friedman, another great public servant, was a member of Goldman’s board at the same time he was chairman of the New York Fed. Friedman helped to put together the deal under which AIG’s CDS counter-parties were paid out at 100 cents on the dollar. By approving Goldman’s request to become a bank holding company, Friedman helped facilitate the most profitable advantage to Goldman’s existence thus far. He then inexplicably bought tens of thousands of Goldman shares in the open market—a clear conflict of interest given his position at the Fed—resulting in his resignation shortly afterwards.

On May 13, Jonathan Weil for Bloomberg wrote: “Rigged-Market Theory Scores a Perfect Quarter. He goes on to explain, “In a feat that would seem to defy all odds, Goldman said its daily net trading revenue topped $100 million 35 times last quarter out of 63 trading days.”



A May 13, 2010 Bloomberg article states, “The odds that you’d post a daily net gain 63 times in a row, would be about one in 5.7 billion. Even if you had a 95 percent likelihood of a winning day, you would have only a 3.9 percent chance of doing it 63 trading sessions in a row.

Considering Goldman Sachs’ million dollars an hour winning streak for 63 days straight (it was not just Goldman, it was also JPMorgan, Citigroup and Bank of America that disclosed similar eye-popping stats) we can better understand how they pulled off this thievery. And whose name do we discover as a major shareholder in all these conglomerates? None other than the notorious trillionaire David Rockefeller.

Weil continues, “If a too-big-to-fail bank’s traders were able to make money every day of a quarter, were they really trading in any normal sense of the word? Or would vacuuming be a more accurate term?”

According to the Wall Street Journal, April 17, 2010, “Goldman Sachs Group Inc. was charged with deceiving clients by selling them mortgage securities secretly designed by a hedge-fund firm, Paulson and Co., who made a killing betting on the housing market’s collapse.” The bank did not disclose the role of the hedge fund, that helped put together the deal as part of its bet against housing. And while Goldman paid a $550 million fine to settle the case, the SEC did not charge Paulson with any wrongdoing.

Zubi Diamond, author of the “Wizards of Wall Street,” states, "The hedge fund short sellers can now crash the market, panic shareholders out of their stocks, buy to cover their short positions for hefty profits, and then buy back in at the bottom to open long positions and then recover the whole market indexes to normal levels. These market manipulators have the ability to drive prices down and then drive them back up, all within a 15-minute period."

Many may have seen the tense inquisition between the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations and Goldman Sachs. But most aren’t aware that many of those asking the questions have been recipients of Goldman’s political donations. It’s the finest display of political theater, smoke and mirrors, a dog and pony show that keeps the gullible public appeased, thinking that they are experiencing history in the making.

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, ten of these senators have together received more than $1million in campaign contributions from a combination of Goldman’s political action committees and its employees and their families. Since the SEC filed no criminal charges, the entire hearing was a charade—political theater at its best. Civil charges result only in fines, when prison is warranted. At $1 million an hour for 63 days, a $550 million fine is merely a payoff to public officials, a cost of doing business and a green light for Goldman to continue its fraudulent business-as-usual.

Over the years, various loyal men in Congress have introduced Bills to repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and to redeem control of our money system. None of them has been acted upon by our alleged representatives who are sworn to uphold our Constitution.

Rep. Ron Paul, one of the only members of the House (or Senate for that matter) worth his salt, sponsored H.R. 1207, a bill requiring that the Federal Reserve be opened to audit by Congress. The plan compiled over 300 co-sponsors in the House before being sent to committee.

But in a later interview with a Bloomberg reporter, Paul stated, “The teeth have been ripped out of the bill and there’s nothing left; it’s been gutted. This is not a partisan issue. People all over the country want to know what the Fed is up to, and this legislation would have helped them do that.”

I am no financial advisor, but I certainly have enough financial sense to know when the markets are rigged.



Like a giant octopus, the tentacles of corruption have infiltrated the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial branches of our government. The bankers, the corporate heads and the public officials are drinking from the same financial trough, funded by the unsuspecting public. Thus, an ominous darkness is engulfing America like a fog, and I don’t see even a flicker of light able to dispel it.

Nevertheless, for the believer in Christ, this is not our world; this is not our home. We are sojourners journeying to a heavenly, spiritual kingdom. Our hope is not anchored in this dark, failing, ominous world or any person residing in it. For we who serve Christ Jesus have a home awaiting us that out shines the sun, and our hope rest in Him. We serve the Father of lights and in Him there is no shadow or darkness. And whether He chooses to save us from the mounting depravity of this world is His choice alone. For Christ’s prayer to the Father was not to take His followers out of the world, but to [spiritually] protect them from the evil one while they are in the world. So here is a promise we can depend on, and live for, that He will never leave us nor forsake us and He will be with us even unto the end of this age.

Obama’s phony banking “reform”

27 April 2010

Debate on the Senate version of the Obama administration’s bank regulatory overhaul is expected to begin shortly. The House of Representatives passed its banking bill last December.

Neither bill does anything to curb the power of the banks or limit their parasitic and socially destructive activities. What the media is calling the “most sweeping overhaul” of the banking system since the Great Depression in reality sanctions the ever greater monopolization of the financial system by a handful of Wall Street giants, imposes no limits on executive pay, and allows the banks and hedge funds to continue gambling on exotic and largely unregulated securities such as collateralized debt obligations and credit default swaps.

The so-called bank “reform” is an exercise in mass deception—an attempt to placate popular hostility to the banks and provide the government with political cover while it continues to do the bidding of Wall Street.

The bills have been drawn up in the closest consultation with bankers and bank lobbyists. This collusion has been widely reported in the press and presented as a perfectly normal and acceptable fact of political life. The front-page lead article in Monday’s Wall Street Journal describes the intensive lobbying being carried out by billionaire investor Warren Buffet to alter the Senate bill’s provisions on derivatives.

Buffet, an Obama supporter, wants to exempt existing derivatives deals from collateral requirements in the current language of the bill—a change that would save him billions on his $63 billion derivatives portfolio. Both senators from his home state of Nebraska, one Democrat and one Republican, are championing his cause.

This is just one example of the web of corruption and bribery that extends from Wall Street to the White House and Capitol Hill. The banks have thus far spent $455 million lobbying Congress on the overhaul and handed out $34 million in 2010 election campaign donations, most of it to Democrats.

The circle of corruption includes the ratings companies such as Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s, which blessed toxic subprime mortgage-backed securities with triple-A ratings in return for fees from the banks they were rating, and government regulators who move seamlessly from regulatory offices to lucrative posts at the banks they were supposedly overseeing.

The colossuses of Wall Street amass their huge profits by means of fraud and swindling. Over the past few weeks systematic accounting fraud at Lehman Brothers has been exposed and the Securities and Exchange Commission has indicted Goldman Sachs for defrauding its clients in the run-up to the subprime mortgage crash. This is only the tip of the iceberg.

Obama’s so-called reform will do nothing to hold accountable the criminals at the head of the banks and hedge funds or break up the financial behemoths that exert a stranglehold on the economy. Instead, it will set up a mechanism to institutionalize government rescue operations of big financial firms to protect the interests of bank executives, shareholders and creditors, ultimately at public expense.

The lawless and reckless actions of Wall Street CEOs have had devastating consequences for tens of millions of people in the US and around the world. The wreckage left in the wake of the financial tsunami of 2008 is registered in millions of lost jobs, home foreclosures, utility shutoffs, and rising hunger, disease and poverty.

With the help of trillions of dollars in taxpayer bailouts, the bankers are making more money today than ever, even as schools are closed, libraries disappear and museums and opera houses are shuttered. There is, the people are told, “no money” for jobs or basic social services.

There is plenty of money. The problem is that it is concentrated in the hands of a financial aristocracy. The immense concentration of wealth among these individuals is not only morally repugnant, it is a menace to society. It is the result of the plundering of the social wealth to feed criminal appetites, at the direct cost of the productive forces.

During the rise of American capitalism as an industrial power, the vast fortunes of the corporate elite, while achieved through ruthless exploitation of the working class, were associated with the expansion of industry and the production of useful products. That is not the case with today’s financial elite. Its wealth is amassed on the basis of financial manipulation and outright fraud, linked to the destruction of the social infrastructure and industry.

The Socialist Equality Party advocates a policy that proceeds from the needs of the people and society as a whole, not the personal fortunes of the bankers and big investors. We call for:

• The criminal prosecution of bankers and speculators whose illegal actions contributed to the deepest economic crisis since the Great Depression. They must be held legally accountable and given appropriate sentences to prevent a recurrence of such practices.

• The expropriation of the wealth of the top bankers, hedge fund managers, traders and speculators. This would immediately free up several trillion dollars, money that could go to a public works program to provide jobs and rebuild the social infrastructure—schools, housing, clinics, libraries, cultural facilities, the energy system. This money could also be used to help provide relief to the victims of the economic crisis—to maintain full wages for those laid off, put a stop to foreclosures and utility shutoffs, provide full medical coverage.

• The nationalization of the banks and major financial institutions and their transformation into public utilities under the democratic control of the working population. This is a prerequisite for the rational and planned development of the economy and the allocation of resources to rebuild the social infrastructure, end poverty, raise living standards and overcome social inequality.

Only such a socialist program can break the grip of the financial aristocracy and liberate the productive forces for the benefit of society as a whole. It can be achieved only through the independent political mobilization of the working class against Obama, the two parties and big business, and the capitalist system that they defend.

School Board Member Chastised Over “Anchor Babies”



Last Updated: Fri, 04/09/2010 - 11:20am



An elected official in southern California has been asked to resign for referring to the American-born children of illegal immigrants as “anchor babies,” a derogatory and dehumanizing term, according to the Latino rights advocates calling for the ouster.

The Fontana Unified School District member, Kathy Binks, used the term during a recent board meeting, igniting fury among the area’s immigration advocates who quickly accused the veteran trustee of denigrating the offspring of illegal aliens. Binks has served in the public school district, located about 50 miles east of Los Angeles, for more than two decades and is known as a dedicated child advocate.

(LA RAZA PARTY BARBARA CHAVEZ - HERE’S REALITY TO CHAVEZ’S RACISM:

HOPING THE BORDER PREGNANT MEANS “FREE” BIRTHING AND THEN 18 YEARS OF WELFARE. WHILE THESE WOMAN BIRTH “LEGALS” BY LAW, THE CHILD WILL BE RAISED MEXICAN, AND TO HAVE THE RACIST CONTEMPT FOR AMERICANS, LOATHE ENGLISH, LITERACY, AND BE GANG MEMBERS )

*

During a recent meeting a fellow school board member (Barbara Chavez), who is a renowned Latino rights advocate, complained that the district somehow treats the children of illegal aliens like immigrants even though they’re American citizens by birth. Chavez said it irritates her because the children are American and “this is their world, this is their country.”

Here is where the “highly offensive” comment from Binks comes in. Acknowledging Chavez’s remarks, Binks said: “Oh, I know that, they’re anchor babies.” Accusing Binks of being racially insensitive, the area’s influential immigration advocates have posted the exchange on YouTube and called for her resignation.

APPALLED AND AGHAST??? WHERE ARE THESE LA RAZA MEXICANS WHEN MEXICAN GANGS ARE MURDERING PEOPLE?

The president of the local chapter of a national group dedicated to combating discrimination against Mexicans (League of United Latin American Citizens or LULAC) said he was “appalled” and “aghast” that such comments are still being used, pointing out that “we’re all sort of anchor babies no matter what country we came from.”

Binks has apologized but refuses to end her lengthy career in education over a phrase that is widely accepted to identify kids born in this country to those who live in it illegally. She has, however, agreed to work with a community program that promotes tolerance and compassion.

Anchor Baby Power

La Voz de Aztlan has produced a video in honor of the millions of babies that have been born as US citizens to Mexican undocumented parents. These babies are destined to transform America. The nativist CNN reporter Lou Dobbs estimates that there are over 200,000 "Anchor Babies" born every year whereas George Putnam, a radio reporter, says the figure is closer to 300,000. La Voz de Aztlan believes that the number is approximately 500,000 "Anchor Babies" born every year.

The video below depicts the many faces of the "Anchor Baby Generation". The video includes a fascinating segment showing a group of elementary school children in Santa Ana, California confronting the Minutemen vigilantes. The video ends with a now famous statement by Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez of the University of Texas at Austin.

FUNDING FOR LA RAZA “THE RACE” – THE MEXICAN FASCIST PARTY FOR MEXICAN SUPREMACY (DO SEARCH FOR LA RAZA ON BLOG)

YOUR TAX DOLLARS PAYING FOR THE 'Reconquista' OF MEXICAN OCCUPIED AMERICAN SOUTHWEST.



By Dave Gibson (09/17/2006) http://americandaily.com/article/15577



In 2005, the Latino group known as La Raza (The Race) was given $15.2 million in U.S. federal grants. La Raza also received an additional $4 million in so-called 'earmarks' tucked into the 2005 Housing Bill, which our Congress passed and President Bush signed. Considering the racist agenda of La Raza, giving federal funds to this group is tantamount to the U.S. funding the Nazis in the 1930's. The comparison to the Nazi Party is well deserved. La Raza openly supports pushing all but Latino Americans out of a portion of the United States (ethnic cleansing – DO A SEARCH ON THE BLOG, OR LOS ANGELES TIMES ON MEXICAN GANGS MURDERING BLACKS IN LOS ANGELES TO “ETHNICALLY CLEANSE THEIR HOODS), they call for 'Reconquista' or the re-conquest of the American Southwest by Mexico (the re-occupation of the Sudetanland), and the establishment of 'Atzlan' which is the utopian all-Latino version of the American Southwestern states (Adolf Hitler planned to called his utopia Germania). Karl Rove was one of the keynote speakers at this year's annual National Council of La Raza Conference. The event was held in Los Angeles (the eventual capital of Atzlan). Other speakers included Jesse Jackson, Bill Clinton, and the virulent racist L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. The fact that Karl Rove is the President's top political adviser and addressed the group with Bush's blessing, is a strong indicator that this nation is being subverted at the very highest levels. If La Raza was a white supremacist group with equally deep pockets, the U.S. government would place them on a terrorist watch list, infiltrate them with undercover FBI agents, and subject them to constant harassment by the Internal Revenue Service. Eventually, the group's leaders would be jailed and the group itself would be rendered irrelevant. However, because La Raza is a Latino supremacist group, the Bush administration and most of Congress offer them financial support!



One of La Raza's biggest supporters is Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). In 2001, Reid asked the Senate Appropriations Committee for $5 million to help further the racist goals of that organization. That same year, La Raza gave Sen. Reid their Capital Award for "his commitment to advance legislation priorities of the Latino community." Reid in turn praised La Raza by saying: "La Raza is like the biblical David (MEXICAN OCCUPIERS?), fighting all these Goliaths (AMERICAN PEOPLE?)."



Taxpayer funds are also funneled to La Raza through the Department of Health and Human Services, The Environmental Protection Agency, and even NASA. Tax dollars are hidden in these government agencies, earmarked to be specifically given away to La Raza. Inside the halls of Congress, the practice is known as discretionary funding...In the real world it is known as money laundering! In 2005, $7.9 million was stolen from the American taxpayers and given out to Latino-only charter schools in the form of U.S. Department of Education grants. The following is a list of a few of those schools: -La Academia Semillas del Pueblo (Los Angeles) -Atzlan Academy (Tucson, AZ) -Mexicayotl Academy (Nogales, AZ) -The Dolores Huerta Prepatory High School (Pueblo, CO) -Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School (St. Paul, MN) These schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the reconquest of the American Southwest, ethnic cleansing and the establishment of the mythical Atzlan, and even Aztec math!...Again, all taught on your dime! According to the Capital Research Center, La Raza has assets well in excess of $50 million. This same group reports that La Raza spends about $1 million annually on lobbying and fundraising. Can you imagine a high-ranking member of the Roosevelt administration making a trip to Berlin to show support for the Nazi Party? Or perhaps the Congress appropriating money to the Ku Klux Klan? While those scenarios both sound absurd, the support that our elected officials are giving to the racist group known as La Raza is no different. One has to wonder, if the KKK offered extremely cheap labor to unscrupulous American businesses and potential votes to equally unscrupulous politicians...Would Congress fund whites-only charter schools?

MEChA-the Mexican Nazi Movement

http://www.theconservativevoice.com/article/14851.html



MEChA (“Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan” or Chicano Students Movement of Aztlan) is neither a fraternity nor a “good-natured and altruistic college campus organization”. Rather, it is the Hispanic version of the Nazis, Ku Klux Klan or Islamic Jihad—take your pick or mix ‘n match. MEChA’s news organ La Voz de Aztlan (“the voice of Aztlan”) regularly and consistently prints opinions and “news” stories that vilify Israel and Jews, in general. Amongst others, one of its staff writers-Ernesto Cienfuegos-has written numerous anti-Semitic articles including but, not limited to “Jews against Islam: The War of Cartoons”, “Jewish Maquiladora Owners Scam Tijuana Workers”, “The Kosher Nostra Scam on the American Consumer”, “Zionist Plot to take over Mexican Presidency” and “Jewish Rabbi gives three infants Herpes”. WHEW! The site also blasts Los Angeles KFI talk-show host Bill Handel in its statement: “The radio show is hosted by a Jew named Bill Handel who has a history of making obscene and racist remarks against non-Jewish ethnic, racial and religious groups including Mexicans.” Another of its “news” stories includes “Anti-Mexican Jewish Bigot Identified” in which it states: “The racist Jew who filmed a video in which he humiliates a group of Mexican workers (Jornaleros) has been identified. La Voz de Aztlan has received information on the hateful Jew who produced the shameful video. This is more proof that these sinister, malevolent, malicious and nefarious people will stop at nothing.” The site also firmly aligns itself with Islam. If one is looking for good old-fashioned no-holds-barred “hate speech against Jews”, La Voz de Aztlan is the site to visit. But, the Aztlan Movement is much more than just a small and inconsequential “hate-Jew movement”—much more, indeed. On its site, La Voz announced its participation in the 2004 "Forum on Binational Thought" which was held in Mexico City. The speaker from the Aztlan Movement was named as no other than Henry Cisneros! La Voz writes: “From Aztlan, Henry Cisneros will deliver the speech "Future of the relationship between Mexican and Mexican-Americans". Cisneros was Bill Clinton's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and is presently a John Kerry campaign aide within the Mexican-American community.” And if that doesn’t curl your hair, current California Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa are “former” MEChA members. But, one has to wonder if the “former” designation is accurate. Note: This definitely takes MEChA and the Aztlan Movement out of the “fringe” category and places it into the mainstream Hispanic Democrat camp. And it is patently chilling. Most certainly, MEChA’s Aztlan Movement does not represent the majority of Hispanics in the United States. The mere fact that lawmakers in the US are members (or claim to be “former” members) should at least give all US citizens pause—if not creating a call to action. This hate-filled organization is growing, folks—and so is its influence on other US lawmakers. Bear in mind, MEChA’s Aztlan Movement is also the organization that is working for the Reconquista (“reconquest”) of the US’ Southwestern states, which include California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. And with increasing backing from US “leaders”, including a US Senate that appears to be feckless in passing any Immigration Reform bill that has real teeth and viability, they just might affect it. However, this time the New Nazi movement won’t have a German accent. Comprende usted?

"MurguĂ­a said she recognized that ultimately the power to change the debate lies with the Hispanic community itself. “Latinos buy products from the advertisers supporting these programs,” she said. “Latinos vote in primaries and in the general election. We have a significant role to play picking winners and losers in both arenas. We need to make it clear to those who embrace hate that they do so at their own economic and political peril.”

Jeb Bush Leads Drive to Court Latino Voters Republicans Failed to Engage

By Lisa Lerer - Jan 14, 2011

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has a new title: Republican ambassador to Latino voters.

Fluent in Spanish and married to a Mexican-born woman, Bush has spent much of his career wooing and winning Latino support for the Republican Party -- for his own two successful gubernatorial campaigns and twice for his older brother’s winning presidential bids.

Now, after four years of divisive immigration battles sparking protests among Latino communities, Bush is trying to do for his party what he did for himself and his family.

The 57-year-old Bush, now a senior adviser at Barclays Plc, is leading what he calls a “center-right” campaign to rebuild a fractured relationship between his party and Latino voters, the fastest growing U.S. minority according to the Census Bureau.

The newly formed Hispanic Leadership Network -- supported by former President George W. Bush and a team of allies -- aims to shift the Republican Party toward a so-called big-tent philosophy after a midterm campaign cycle featuring anti-illegal immigration rhetoric from Tea Party-backed candidates.

“There are many Latino Republicans who have been committed to this party that have stopped voting,” said Leslie Sanchez, a former Bush aide involved with the network. “This shifts the conversation.”

Inaugural Event

The group -- an offshoot of the American Action Network, one of the wealthiest Republican organizations channeling money into political campaigns -- is holding its inaugural event in Coral Gables, Florida.

Republican lawmakers, including newly elected Florida Governor Rick Scott, veteran party leaders and Latino strategists, mingled last night in the open-air courtyard of the historic Biltmore Hotel, as Jeb Bush gave interviews in Spanish.

“Without an active participation of the most dynamic, growing part of what will be the governing coalition in our country, without the active involvement of Hispanics, we will not be the governing philosophy of our country,” Bush told the crowd.

Today, participants at the gathering included National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn of Texas and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, potential Republican candidate for president in 2012. The conference is sponsored by companies including Google Inc., AT&T Inc., Altria Group Inc. and Oracle Corp.

Former President Bush

Jeb Bush’s brother, former President Bush, spoke to the group in a video address today.

“There’s a lot of common ground to be achieved between Republicans and people who are of Hispanic origin,” the former president said.

The group aims to build support for the party in the run-up to the 2012 presidential elections. A number of states with large Latino populations -- including Florida, Nevada and Colorado -- may prove critical battlegrounds in the race.

Although Hispanic Republicans in Florida, Nevada and New Mexico won high-profile races in November’s elections, Democrats largely won the Latino vote in other states by big margins, polling shows.

Sixty percent of Latino voters supported Democratic candidates in 2010 House races, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, while 38 percent supported Republicans.

40 Percent of Vote

“I don’t think 40 percent of the Hispanic vote can be our ceiling if we plan to impact our nation in the coming decades,” Bush wrote in an opinion page article published Jan. 9 by the Miami Herald.

President Barack Obama won 67 percent of the Hispanic vote in the 2008 election while his Republican opponent, Senator John McCain of Arizona, won 31 percent, according to exit polls. In the 2004 race, Democratic Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts won 53 percent of the Hispanic vote, while George W. Bush got 44 percent -- a record for a Republican presidential candidate, the polls found.

The question for Jeb Bush and his co-chairman, former U.S. Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, is whether they can persuade many in their own party to join the effort.

“The only Republicans that I think get it when it comes to Hispanics are the Bush brothers,” said Fernand Amandi, managing partner of Miami-based Bendixen and Associates Inc., a Democratic-leaning political consulting firm that specializes in Hispanic outreach. “That’s about where it starts and ends in my judgment.”

Out of Step

Jeb Bush has found himself out of step with much of his party on immigration-related issues. He has urged Congress to take up a comprehensive revision of immigration laws, a proposal opposed by Republican congressional leaders, and said he opposed an Arizona law requiring police to check the citizenship of suspected illegal immigrants.

Hispanic Republican leaders, including former Florida Representative Lincoln Diaz-Balart, said Congress should overhaul immigration laws and pass the “Dream Act,” a proposal to let some children of illegal immigrants gain legal status if they attend college or serve in the military.

Cornyn and other Senate Republicans blocked consideration of the Dream Act in December. Cornyn said he voted not to take up the bill because he feared Democrats would use a vote on the measure to “bludgeon” Republicans politically.

Pawlenty, the only potential Republican 2012 presidential candidate who attended the conference, also said he didn’t support the legislation. Republicans can appeal to Hispanic voters with a broader economic message, he said.

‘Incomplete and Presumptuous’

“It’s incomplete and presumptuous for people to say the only issue the Latino community cares about is the immigration issue,” Pawlenty said. “Not every conversation has to be focused just on that. It has to be part of a broader message.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia, who aides said was delivering a video address to the meeting, founded a bilingual website in 2009 aimed at promoting conservative values and Latino heritage. That site, named the Americano, recently held its own conference in Washington.

Since Republicans rejected President George W. Bush’s comprehensive immigration plan in 2007, the party has taken a harder line against illegal immigration.

“The debate about immigration has been radicalized and made into this anti-Latino, anti-Hispanic campaign,” said Manuel Pastor, a professor of geography and American studies and ethnicity at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. “Those kinds of statements really strike a chord that’s much deeper in the Latino community than some Republicans have realized.”

Reid’s Re-Election

Latino voters turned out in Nevada for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last year after his Republican opponent, Sharron Angle, ran a campaign ad the Latino community criticized as racially biased. Reid won more than 90 percent of the Latino vote in his re-election victory, according to polls by Seattle- based research center Latino Decisions.

In California, Latinos gave 64 percent of their vote to Democrat Jerry Brown as he won the governor’s race over Republican Meg Whitman, the former CEO of EBay Inc., who got 31 percent of the Latino vote, according to exit polls. In late September, it was revealed Whitman had employed a housekeeper who was in the country illegally and who Whitman subsequently fired. Whitman later said she believed the housekeeper should be deported.

“Republicans think that they have an image problem but they really actually have a policy problem,” Pastor said. “It’s hard to convince someone to vote for you when you are threatening to deport their grandmother.”

Anchor Baby Power

La Voz de Aztlan has produced a video in honor of the millions of babies that have been born as US citizens to Mexican undocumented parents. These babies are destined to transform America. The nativist CNN reporter Lou Dobbs estimates that there are over 200,000 "Anchor Babies" born every year whereas George Putnam, a radio reporter, says the figure is closer to 300,000. La Voz de Aztlan believes that the number is approximately 500,000 "Anchor Babies" born every year.

The video below depicts the many faces of the "Anchor Baby Generation". The video includes a fascinating segment showing a group of elementary school children in Santa Ana, California confronting the Minutemen vigilantes. The video ends with a now famous statement by Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez of the University of Texas at Austin.

Anchor Babies Grab One Quarter of Welfare Dollars in LA Co



The anchor baby scam has proven lucrative for illegal aliens in Los Angeles County, at considerable cost to our own poor and downtrodden legal citizenry.



The numbers show that more than $50 million in CalWORKS benefits and food stamps for January went to children born in the United States whose parents are in the country without documentation. This represents approximately 23 percent of the total benefits under the state welfare and food stamp programs, Antonovich said.



"When you add this to $350 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for health care, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers far exceeds $1 billion a year -- not including the millions of dollars for education," Antonovich said.



I love children and I'm all for compassion -- smart, teach-them-to-fish compassion. But when laws, the Constitution, and enforcement allow illegal aliens (the operative word here being "illegal") to insinuate themselves into our nation and bleed us of our precious financial resources, then laws, the Constitution and enforcement need to be changed.

IMMIGRANTS: Unarme Invaders? ARMED INVADERS? OR INVITED LOOTERS?

THE BOOK REVIEW BELOW IS FROM 2004. NOW THE HIGHLY VIOLENT MEX DRUG CARTELS HAVE SPREAD TO 233 AMERICAN CITIES ACCORDING TO THE F.B.I.




“This book is not about race, creed or color. Americans of all races suffer this onslaught. It will become worse for all of us. As one man from India wrote me, "You Americans live an artificially high standard of living…it’s about time you come down to the rest of the world’s poverty."

Book review - Immigration's Unarmed Invasion: Deadly Consequences

Book Review by Donald A. Collins

August 17, 2004

Published on The Washington Dispatch.

Amid this Presidential campaign, perhaps the most critical in our nation’s history, issues are flying like falling leaves in an October wind, piling up against each other so as to make them almost indistinguishable, one from another. The issues that often make the most ink are likely to be the least important. As a veteran observer, it strikes me that never has our government been so out of the control of the electorate with our country seemingly spiraling into anarchy. Our democracy is in crisis and no one seems to be looking at root causes.

It must seem that way to the ACLU too, since it paid for a full page ad in the August 7, 2004 The Economist which offered the following headline: “How can we fight to uphold the Rule of Law if we break the rules ourselves?”

Daily some 2000 illegal immigrants are apprehended in a 260 mile stretch of the Arizona border near Tucson. Between 1970 and 2000 over 50 million immigrants, most with little education or assets have come here, most of them illegally. While polls show the immigration reform issue is important to over 80% of Americans, neither major party has promised satisfactory consideration.

Fortunately, a new book just published outlines the issues at stake in stark, no nonsense terms which can be readily understood. Its author, Frosty Wooldridge, a teacher, lecturer, and an author who frequently contributes his views on this issue to multi media audiences, has bicycled 100,000 miles around the globe to see the dire effects of overpopulation. This book comes from his vast and varied first hand contacts with the immigration reform issue and he leaves no aspect of this perplexing, frightening subject untreated.

IMMIGRATION'S UNARMED INVASION: DEADLY CONSEQUENCES explains each aspect from the view of how it affects us Americans and why we must speedily regain control by enforcing our laws or see the rapid decline of our nation into second rate status.

What is so unique and important about this book? Short answer: Its urgent perspective, a root paradigm, in recent years buried by other far less relevant concerns, the global impact of overpopulation, both here and everywhere. The average age of the world’s population is under 25 and in Middle Eastern nations and much of Asia, it is under 20. The failure to meet women’s needs in the 20th Century when half of all births were unintended moved world population from just over 1 billion at its beginning to 6 billion people at its conclusion, leaving poverty, terrorism, and environmental devastation in its wake. The prospect of adding several billions more this century is virtually assured unless new, urgent attention gets focused by all humanity on these unbalanced numbers, largely untutored, uneducated, and subject to recruitment by terrorists.

Wooldridge, with the most electrifying clarity yet brought to this burgeoning population calamity, the mother of mass immigration here and elsewhere, totally exposes this devastating problem in all its complexities, as he focuses on all its dire consequences for the USA, which all start with our ignoring a cherished American first principle: Our government is failing to live up to the basic Rule of Law set forth in Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."

This book details clearly why our present government at all levels is failing miserably to meet our Rule of Law in allowing unchecked levels of high immigration both legal and illegal.

From the Wooldridge Introduction, “This book exposes Americans to the accelerating consequences of mass legal and unrestricted illegal immigration into the United States. It examines individual communities and lives across this nation that have been undermined by the 1965 Immigration Reform Act.

Pre-publication reviews by many knowledgeable immigration reform observers highlight salient Wooldridge arguments. Here are only two of many examples: “Wooldridge and others who speak through the pages of this book set the record straight on why immigration impoverishes America. We sell our nation's future down the river--socially, culturally, fiscally, environmentally--for no better reason than to provide business with a flood of cheap, taxpayer-subsidized immigrant labor. This nation's poor and minorities are hurt the most in the process. I urge all Americans to heed this book's warning." Corine Flores, Immigration-reform advocate, Santa Fe, New Mexico

"When I was born 50 years ago, there were 140 million Americans. Today, we approach 300 million. In my daughter's lifetime, we could reach a "China-like" billion Americans! Read this book as if your children's futures depend on what you will learn. Their futures do depend on exactly that!" Kathleene Parker, Los Alamos, New Mexico, Writer, publisher and immigration-reformer

These two Westerners know that “the wide open spaces” of their region and others in the US similarly perceived are not arable and that endless growth, as pushed by the globalized major corporate interests who presently have bought control of our government, is an obvious myth.

“Oh, but aren’t we the richest and most powerful nation on Earth?”, say the gated community affluents. Aren’t we rich enough to do what we want, take in all who want to come, keep spending on our vast military establishment at the expense of our education system, environmental standards, and our other pressing domestic priorities?

The short answer is “No”. A perfect example of what can happen to the very richest oil producer, Saudis Arabia, whose population growth (2.5 times ours!) has cut its free gift income to each Saudi citizen from $28,000 per year in 1981 to $7000 a year now, despite record high oil prices in both years. Its 19 million population has an average age of under 18 and represents a ticking time bomb of discontent in the near future.

After one of my several trips around the world, I have talked to people who “wouldn’t want to go to..... (poor places)”. Don’t worry, folks, these “places” have and will continue to come here.

And what about our own current huge deficit government spending binge? Whoever wins in November will be operating with a deficit of historic proportions at a time of economic malaise.

In my 20 plus years of studying this dual disconnect by our government and too many American voters, no one has better articulated our failure of observe our vaunted Rule of Law in the case of immigration reform or our continuing failure to fully fund an expansion of international family planning, a low cost method of helping the entire world fare better. Let these two excerpts from this landmark call to arms prompt your purchase of this “must read” book:

“Many warnings abound from the brightest minds in the world:"Pressures resulting from unrestrained population growth put demands on the natural world that can overwhelm any efforts to achieve a sustainable future. If we are to halt the destruction of our environment, we must accept limits to that growth." --World Scientists' Warning to Humanity, signed by 1600 senior scientists from 70 countries, including 102 Nobel Prize laureates, November 18, 1992

“This book is not about race, creed or color. Americans of all races suffer this onslaught. It will become worse for all of us. As one man from India wrote me, "You Americans live an artificially high standard of living…it’s about time you come down to the rest of the world’s poverty." He wasn’t kidding. One look at California demonstrates his statement. From extensive world travels, this author appreciates that every human being on this planet paddles his or her boat the best he or she can. Every religious faith is doing the best it can. However, overpopulation does not care about such things. It weds misery and suffering for every person within its clutches. Overpopulation is relentless once humans are caught in its grip. It stems from ‘exponential growth.’ It’s the reason you see no one fleeing to Bangladesh, China or India. In these pages, the International Human Suffering Index will be discussed as well as its escalating numbers. This book addresses carrying capacity and sustainability. It addresses a viable United States versus a country that is headed, like a steaming, brakeless locomotive, toward the edge of the Grand Canyon.”Nobody ever said it better.

Most books can state the case, but few really offer cogent, realistic politically possible solutions. However, in his powerful ending section Wooldridge eloquently offers ways on “how to save America”, ideas which embrace the practical time honored principles shared by such greats as Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Eleanor Roosevelt and Martin Luther King. At bottom, however, the initiative must come from an informed, politically active electorate. As Franklin told us at a time when the republic was formed, it will remain so only if we actively participate. We must follow the lead of the late Barbara Jordan, who counseled us to “Speak up”, making our opposition to the nasty trend to lesser nation status unacceptable. Start by getting acquainted with the majority of Americans of all races, political persuasions, and economic status who support immigration reform by signing in to web sites on reform and getting active in your own area. As Wooldridge makes clear, your country’s future depends on your taking action now.

These gangs have become one of the principle ways to import and distribute drugs in the United States. Congressman David Reichert joins Lou to tell us why those gangs are growing larger and stronger, and why he’s introduced legislation to eliminate the top three international drug gangs.

FOR BARACK OBAMA, IT’S ALL ABOUT KEEPING WAGES DEPRESSED WITH OPEN BORDERS FOR HORDES MORE ILLEGALS, WHICH IN TURN ENHANCES THE PROFIT MARGINS OF HIS CORPORATE PAYMASTERS!





This WorldNet Daily article portrays a grim future for American sovereignty:



Obama signature creates 'continental perimeter'

Move described as key step in advance of North American Union



By Jerome R. Corsi

Read the entire article





Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper quietly have taken a major step toward erasing the border between the two nations with a new "Beyond the Border" bilateral declaration.



In a ceremony designed to remain below the radar of national public opinion, Obama and Harper bypassed Congress to sign on the basis of their executive authority a declaration that put in place a new national security vision defined not by U.S. national borders, but by a continental view of a "North American perimeter."



It happened Friday, the day the Obama administration usually pushes through issues that it prefers the media ignore.



By signing the declaration, the Obama administration has implemented without congressional approval a key initiative President Bush began under the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, moving the United States and Canada beyond the North American Free Trade Agreement, commonly known as NAFTA, toward a developing North American Union regional government.



The declaration signed by the two heads of state and titled "Beyond the Border: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness," was described as "For Immediate Release" on the websites of the White House and the Canadian chief executive.



Harper followed Obama's lead in signing the declaration as a form of executive order, deciding to bypass the Canadian parliament, much as Obama had decided against taking a proposed bilateral "Beyond the Border" declaration to Congress for prior review and approval.



The decision to declare a continental perimeter for the United States and Canada, designed to effectively combine the two nations in mutual national security and economic efforts, affirms the Obama administration's intent to implement the key objectives of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North American in a way that avoids the type of public scrutiny and criticism that dogged President George W. Bush after he openly declared his plans with the SPP....



WND previously reported that the Obama administration replaced the content of the SPP website, spp.gov, under the title "Commerce Connect," which announces its purpose as "a one-stop shop for information, counseling and government services that can help U.S. businesses around the country transform themselves into globally competitive enterprises."



Now, the Obama administration has made the spp.gov website totally inoperative....

The SPP.gov website was created under the W Bush administration and was active from 2005-2008, and remained up until Obama recently took it down. Here's a 2008 version of the website from the Wayback Machine.

HOW MANY TIMES HAS OBAMA KISSED UP TO THE U.S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE? KISSING UP TO BIG BUSINESS, LA RAZA, AND MUSLIM DICTATORS IS SOMETHING HE DOES WELL!



Lou Dobbs Tonight

Monday, June 16, 2008

Tonight, we’ll have all the latest on the devastating floods in the Midwest and all the day’s news from the campaign trail. The massive corporate mouthpiece the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is holding a “North American Forum” to lay out its “shared vision” for the United States, Canada and Mexico – which is to say a borderless, pro-business super-state in which U.S. sovereignty will be dissolved. Undercover investigators have found incredibly lax security and enforcement at U.S. border crossings, according to a new report by the Government Accountability Office. This report comes on the heels of a separate report by U.C. San Diego that shows tougher border security efforts aren’t deterring illegal entries to the United States.

Obama seldom brings anyone into his administration that is not corrupt, a bankster, or LA RAZA PARTY MEMBER.

WITH HIS NEW CHIEF OF STAFF DALEY, OBAMA HAS BOTH! A J.P. MORGAN BANKSTER (J.P.s PROFITS UP THIS YEAR 47%), AND AN OPEN BORDERS ADVOCATE PER THE U.S. CHAMBER of COMMERCE.



*

“Records show that four out of Obama's top five contributors are employees of financial industry giants - Goldman Sachs ($571,330), UBS AG ($364,806), JPMorgan Chase ($362,207) and Citigroup ($358,054).”



*

THE REASON OBAMA BROUGHT IN DALEY TO BE CHIEF OF STAFF, WAS SO J.P. MORGAN COULD OPERATE THEIR BANKSTER CRIMES OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE, JUST AS CHENEY OPERATED HALLIBURTON OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE, AND GEORGE BUSH OPERATED BIG BUSH SAUDI CARLYLE GROUP OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE!

!AND!.... DALEY, LIKE OBAMA, LA RAZA AND THE U.S. CHAMBER of COMMERCE IS AN ADVOCATE FOR OPEN BORDERS TO KEEP WAGES DEPRESSED WITH HORDES OF ILLEGALS POURING OVER OUR BORDERS!



FROM CREOLE FOLKS



Obama Seeks Brother of "Chicago Mob Boss" for Top White House Post

The roaches and con-artist, fake journalist on cable news are all lying about William Daley being all this and all that, this man is an open borders, down with America, free trade globalist. MSNBC and Gretta "the Scientology" Van Susteren from Fox News are knowingly deceiving the public about D. Issa & his letter to "business owners"=which they made into such a BIG DAM DEAL, but no one says anything when Barrack Hussein Obama, comes around with all of these shady bankers, hedge fund managers and Wall St. Tycoons, which he puts in his cabinet. All of Obama's meeting with Wall Street asking, "What can I do for you?" is never something covered by Keith Oberman or Rachel Maddow.

(Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama is considering naming William Daley, a JPMorgan Chase & Co. executive and former U.S. Commerce secretary, to a high-level administration post, possibly White House chief of staff, people familiar with the matter said.

THE STAGGERING COST OF BEING MEXICO'S WELFARE & FREE BIRTHING CENTERS

Lou Dobbs Tonight


Wednesday, June 10, 2009



Gov. Schwarzenegger said California is facing “financial Armageddon”. He is making drastic cuts in the budget for education, health care and services. But there is one place he isn’t making cuts… services for illegal immigrants. These services are estimated to cost the state four to five billion dollars a year. Schwarzenegger said he is “happy” to offer these services. We will have a full report tonight.

STAGGERING COST OF ILLEGALS ALIENS IN AMERICA



Aliens In America

Taxpayers Taken To The Cleaners

By Frosty Wooldridge

4-10-8



Illegal alien migration into the United States costs American taxpayers $346 billion annually reported by the National Research Council. While employers of illegal aliens rake-in billions of dollars, the US citizens subsidize what may be called organized "Slavery in 21st Century America."



While Congress facilitates outsourcing, insourcing and offshoring of American jobs by the thousands weekly, that same Congress imports 182,000 legal immigrant monthly who need jobs. Another estimated 100,000 illegal aliens arrive each month without jobs. All those immigrants seize jobs from American citizens at slave wages.



What happens to the American taxpayer?



"Immigrants are poorer, pay less tax, and are more likely to receive public benefits than American citizens," said Edwin Rubenstein, reporting on the National Research Council's new book: "The New Americans: Economic, Demographics and Fiscal Effects of Immigration." The Social Contract Winter 2007-08. www.thesoicalcontract.com

THE ENTIRE REASON THE BORDERS ARE LEFT OPEN IS TO CUT WAGES!

*



The danger, as Washington Post economics columnist Robert Samuelson argues, is that of “importing poverty” in the form of a new underclass—a permanent group of working poor.



*



“We could cut unemployment in half simply by reclaiming the jobs taken by illegal workers,” said Representative Lamar Smith of Texas, co-chairman of the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus. “President Obama is on the wrong side of the American people on immigration. The president should support policies that help citizens and legal immigrants find the jobs they need and deserve rather than fail to enforce immigration laws.”

*

“Obama’s rejection of any serious jobs program is part of a conscious class war policy. Two years after the financial crisis and the multi-trillion dollar bailout of the banks, the administration is spearheading a campaign by corporations to sharply increase the exploitation of the working class, using the “new normal” of mass unemployment to force workers to accept lower wages, longer hours, and more brutal working conditions.” WSWS.ORG

E-Verify- the single most successful federal program aimed at keeping illegal immigrants out of the workforce- is once again threatened. This time, E-Verify was stripped from a Senate Amendment behind closed doors and without explanation. Instead of becoming a permanent program E-verify has been reduced to only three years. Critics are calling this a stall tactic and an attempt at killing an employment enforcement system. We will have a full report tonight.

“The principal beneficiaries of our current immigration policy are affluent Americans who hire immigrants at substandard wages for low-end work.

CALIFORNIA – A STATE FILLED WITH ILLEGALS AND CORRUPT SELF-SERVING POLITICIANS SERVING THEIR CORPORATE RAPIST PAYMASTERS.



“So what about California? The economic well-being of many metropolitan areas in the Golden State has been sinking precipitously since 2006. This year, three California regions--Oakland, Sacramento and San Bernardino-Riverside--have sunk down into the bottom 10 on the large cities list. That's a phenomenon we've never seen before--and never expected to see.” FORBES

CALIFORNIA IN MELTDOWN: JOBS GO FIRST TO ILLEGALS. MEXICAN GANGS HAVE INFESTED ALL CITIES. THE STATE OF CA PAYS OUT $20 BILLION PER YEAR IN SOCIAL SERVICES TO ILLEGALS. THE STATE HAS THE LARGEST, AND MOST EXPENSIVE PRISON SYSTEM IN THE COUNTRY, HALF THE PRISON POPULATION ARE ILLEGALS FROM MEXICO.

THERE ARE ONLY EIGHT (8) STATES WITH A LARGER POPULATION THAN LOS ANGELES COUNTY, WHERE HALF THE JOBS GO TO ILLEGALS USING STOLEN SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS. THIS COUNTY PAYS OUT $600 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR TO ILLEGALS ON WELFARE, AND HIS MEXICO’S “ANCHOR” BABY BIRTHING CENTER.

Worst Cities For Jobs

Joel Kotkin, 04.28.09, 12:00 AM ET

One of the saddest tasks in the annual survey of the best places to do business I conduct with Pepperdine University's Michael Shires is examining the cities at the bottom of the list. Yet even in these nether regions there exists considerable diversity: Some places are likely to come back soon, while others have little immediate hope of moving up. (Please also see "Best Cities For Jobs" for further analysis.)

The study is based on job growth in 336 regions--called Metropolitan Statistical Areas by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which provided the data--across the U.S. Our analysis looked not only at job growth in the last year but also at how employment figures have changed since 1996. This is because we are wary of overemphasizing recent data and strive to give a more complete picture of the potential a region has for job-seekers. (For the complete methodology, click here.)

First let's deal with the perennial losers, the sad sacks of the American economy. Mostly cities in the nation's industrial heartland, these places have ranked toward the bottom of our list for much of the past five years. Eleven of the bottom 16 regions on our list are in two states, Ohio and Michigan. In fact, the Wolverine State alone accounts for bottom four cities: Jackson, Michigan, Detroit, Saginaw and Flint.

In Depth: Worst Big Cities For Jobs

In Depth: Worst Medium-Sized Cities For Jobs

In Depth: Worst Small Cities For Jobs

Unfortunately, there's not much in the way of short-term--or perhaps even medium- or long-term--hope for a strong rebound in those places. President Obama seems determined to give the automakers, for whom Michigan is home base, far rougher treatment than what he meted out to ailing companies in the financial sector.

In addition, new environmental regulations may not help auto production, since it necessitates some carbon-spewing and therefore perhaps unacceptable levels of greenhouse gas emission.

However, not all of Michigan's problems stem from Washington or the marketplace. Many of the locations at the bottom of the list remain inhospitable to business. To be sure, housing is cheap--in Detroit, property values are fast plummeting toward zero--but running a business can be surprisingly expensive in these hard-pressed places.

In fact, according to a recent survey by the Tax Foundation, Ohio has an average tax burden roughly similar to New York, California, Massachusetts and Connecticut. But while the others are comparatively high-income states, Ohio residents no longer enjoy that level of affluence.

Can these places come back? It is un-American to abandon hope, but there needs to be a radical shift in strategy to focus on creating new middle-class jobs. Some Midwestern cities, like Kalamazoo and Indianapolis, have made some successful efforts to diversify their economies, encouraging start-ups and trying to be business-friendly.

But those are exceptions. Cleveland, one of our worst big cities, could spark a renaissance by revamping its port and nearby industrial hinterland. Once the world economy improves, it could re-emerge--building on the existing knowledge and skills of its production- and design-savvy population--as a hub for manufacturing and exports.

But right now, Cleveland does not seem to be pursuing such opportunities. As Purdue's Ed Morrison has pointed out, local leaders there seem to "confuse real estate development with economic development."

So Cleveland will focus on inanities such as convention business and tourism, believing we all fantasize about a week enjoying the sights along Lake Erie. Yet even high-profile buildings like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, completed in 1986, have not transformed a gritty old industrial town into a beacon for the hip and cool.

Old industrial cities like Cleveland are better off focusing on their locational advantages--access to roads, train lines and water routes--while offering a safe, inexpensive and friendly venue for ambitious young families, immigrants and entrepreneurs.

Meanwhile, cities with formerly robust economies--like Reno, Nev., Las Vegas, Orlando, Fla., Tampa, Fla., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., West Palm Beach, Fla., Jacksonville, Fla., and Phoenix--are more likely to rebound. These areas topped our list for much of the 2000s; their success was driven first by surging population and job growth and later by escalating housing prices.

But the collapse of the housing bubble and a drop in large-scale migration from other regions has weakened, often dramatically, these perennial successes. "We could rely on 1,000 people a week moving into the area," notes one longtime official in central Florida. "These people needed services, houses and bought stuff. Now the growth is a 10th of that."

Instead of waiting for the real estate bubble to return, these areas should choose to focus on boosting employment in fields like medical services, business services and light manufacturing. In much of Florida and Nevada, there's also a need to shift away from a reliance on tourism, an industry that pays poorly on average and is always subject to changes in consumer tastes.

We can even be cautiously optimistic about some of these former superstars. After all, observes Phoenix-based economist Elliot Pollack, the existing reasons for moving to Arizona, Nevada or Florida--warm weather, relatively low taxes and generally pro-business governments--have not disappeared. "There's no change in the fundamentals," he argues. "It's a transition. It's ugly, and there's pain, but it's still a cycle that will turn."

Once the economy stabilizes, Pollack says he expects the flow of people and companies from the Northeast and California to Phoenix and other former hot spots will resume, once again lured by inexpensive real estate, better conditions for business and a generally more up-to-date infrastructure.

The Problem with California

*

So what about California? The economic well-being of many metropolitan areas in the Golden State has been sinking precipitously since 2006. This year, three California regions--Oakland, Sacramento and San Bernardino-Riverside--have sunk down into the bottom 10 on the large cities list. That's a phenomenon we've never seen before--and never expected to see.

Like other Sun Belt communities, California suffered disproportionately from the housing bubble's bust, which has devastated both employment in construction-related industries as well as much of the finance sector. But some, like economist Esmael Adibi, director of the Anderson Center for Economic Research at Chapman University, where I teach, thinks a real estate turnaround may be imminent.

Among the first to predict the potential for a real estate bubble back in 2005, these days Adibi is more upbeat, pointing to rising sales of single-family homes, particularly at the lower end of the market. California's inventory of unsold homes is now down to about six months' worth, a figure well below the national average of 9.6 months.

(ILLEGALS STILL POUR OVER OUR OPEN BORDERS AND INTO OUR JOBS AND WELFARE LINES DAILY)

It seems not everyone is ready to abandon the Golden State--but still, recovery in California may prove weaker than in surrounding states. One forecaster, Bill Watkins, even predicts unemployment could reach 15% next year, up from about 11% today. California, most likely, will see only an anemic recovery in 2010 even if growth picks up elsewhere.

Much of the problem lies with the state's notoriously inept government. The enormous budget deficit will almost certainly lead to tax increases, which will fall mostly on the state's vaunted high-income entrepreneurial residents. Stimulus funds won't do much good either, Adibi notes, since "the state is grabbing all of the federal stimulus money" to keep itself afloat.

A draconian regulatory environment also could dim California's prospects for growth. Despite double-digit unemployment, the state seems determined not only to raise taxes but also to tighten its regulatory stranglehold.

This is a stark contrast to what happened in the 1990s during the last deep recession. At that time, leaders from both political parties pulled together to reform the state's regulatory and tax environment. Almost everyone recognized the need to improve the economic climate.

But an even deeper recession, it seems, hardly troubles today's dominant players--public employees, environmental activists and gentry liberals who largely live along the coast. The state has recently passed a draconian Assembly bill aimed to offset global warming by capping greenhouse gas emissions--a measure that seems designed to discourage productive industry.

"This is becoming a horrible place to produce anything," says Watkins, who is executive director of the Economic Forecast Project at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

California's lawyers, though, might stay busy. Attorney General Jerry Brown has threatened to sue anyone who grows their business in unapproved, environment-threatening ways. To be sure, this promise may have relatively little impact on the more affluent, aging coastal communities--but it could wreak havoc on younger, less tony areas in the state's interior. Many of the local economies there still reply on resource-dependent industries like oil, manufacturing and agriculture.

It's sad because California has the capacity to recover more quickly than the rest of the country if the state moderates its spending and stops regulating itself into oblivion. This current round of legislation is so dangerous precisely because it could eviscerate the heart of the economy by slowing down entrepreneurial growth, the state's greatest asset.

Even in hard times, there are people with innovative ideas trying to bring them to market--and not just in Hollywood- and Silicon Valley-based industries but in a broad range of fields, from garments to agriculture, aerospace and processed foods. The desire to increase regulation reflects a peculiar narcissism and arrogance of the state's ruling elites, who believe the genius of San Francisco's venture capitalists and Los Angeles' image-makers alone are enough to spark a powerful recovery.

This is delusional. True, California still has a lead in everything from farm products to films to high-tech manufacturers. But it has been slowly losing ground--to both other states and overseas competitors. CEOs and top management might stay in the Golden State, but they increasingly send outside its borders all jobs that don't require access to the local market, genius scientists or talented entertainers.

"There's a feeling in California that we will come back, no matter what, because we are California," Watkins says. "The leadership is swallowing Panglossian Kool-aid. Some very smart people, a beautiful climate and nice beaches is not enough to guarantee a strong recovery."

MEXIFORNIA

IN ANY CALIFORNIA CITY, IT WILL BE ILLEGALS THAT GET JOBS FIRST. IN SILICON VALLEY, IT WILL BE THE IMPORTED CHINESE AND INDIANS THAT WILL GET JOBS FIRST.



WORST BIG CITIES FOR JOBS: HERE’S CALIFORNIA’S SHARE

*

No. 10: Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario, Calif.

The mortgage crisis and housing bust in this populous suburban area south of Los Angeles led to a halt in home building and a subsequent drop in natural resources, mining and construction jobs, which declined 23.6% between 2007 and 2008. Overall employment declined by 6.2% in the last year and 38.5% over the last decade, sinking the Inland Empire into the first major downturn in its recent history. Yet it’s not all negative. Home sales are up, which may mean that this once vibrant area could come back sooner than many expect.



*



No. 7: Sacramento-Arden Arcase-Roseville, Calif.

The real estate bust in California's capital and its surrounding areas has stunted job growth. Construction and natural resources jobs fell by 30.4% between 2005 and 2008. The housing crisis is accompanied by ones in the financial services and manufacturing industries, in which jobs declined 14.8% and 12%, respectively, over the last three years. The year between 2007 and 2008 saw a 3.9% overall decline in jobs. Employment in education and health services has been the area's saving grace; jobs in that sector increased 23.5% between 2003 and 2008.

*

No. 5: Oakland-Fremont-Hayward, Calif.

The financial services sector of this metropolitan area, across the bay from San Francisco, which includes urban Oakland and the surrounding suburbs, lost 21.1% of its jobs between 2003 and 2008. Construction jobs were hit almost as hard, dropping 18% over the same period. However, the Bay Area, bolstered by colleges in and around San Francisco and Berkeley, saw a 1.6% increase in education and health services jobs last year. But, overall, job losses in this northern California region totaled 3.7% from 2007 to 2008.



*

No. 4: Santa Ana-Anaheim-Irvine, Calif.

The fallout from real estate speculation and a longstanding tech boom in this region, which is south of Los Angeles and includes some of the toniest coastal real estate in the nation, has slowed employment to a crawl. Here, between 2005 and 2008, jobs in construction declined 17.8%, and jobs in information declined 10%. Employment in financial services, a field that especially boomed in Irvine, dropped by 22% over the same years. Much of this was tied to mortgage related companies. Overall, the area saw a 4% decline in jobs between 2007 and 2008. Dropping home prices and rising sales suggest a slow recovery could be on the way though.



*



CA CONTRIBUTION TO WORST MEDIUM SIZED CITIES FOR JOBS



*



No. 10: Santa Rosa-Petaluma, Calif.

"Best of the worst" is a dubious honor. But for the cities of Santa Rosa and Petaluma, home to just under 500,000 people north of San Francisco, the news isn't all bad. Despite cumulative job losses of 4.5% between 2007 and 2008, these communities have seen an 8.2% overall uptick in jobs if you consider data since 1997. The drops are biggest in one predictable sector: the construction sector which saw a double digit decline in jobs, largely from the collapse of the bay area’s housing bubble. Retail and financial services employers also cut workers, with each sector losing about 10% of its jobs.



*

CA CONTRIBUTION TO WORST SMALL CITIES FOR JOBS:

No. 7: Redding, Calif.

Partly because of the housing slump affecting many Sun Belt states, between 2005 and 2008 jobs in the natural resources, mining and construction sector contracted by 41%. Overall employment has dropped 10% since 1997. In the last year, Redding also saw double-digit job loss in the wholesale, information and transportation and utilities sectors. While government positions account for 22.8% of all jobs--and their number has been increasing over the last five years--the Redding Record Searchlight has reported that the city may have to lay off 60 workers.

WORST PLACES IN COUNTRY BY CNBC





1. El Centro, California

Population: 41,241

Lose your job in El Centro and it may be quite some time before you find another one. One in four people here are out of work and the city holds the not-so distinguished honor of having the highest unemployment rate — 27.5 percent — in the country (close behind is Yuma, Ariz., with 27.2 percent unemployment).



The desert city, which is located in Imperial County just across the border from Mexicali, has a jobless rate triple the national average of 9.5 percent thanks to the seasonal fluctuations of field laborers. Field work is the county's third-largest employment sector after government, transportation and utilities, according to AOL News.

"Its location across the border from a much larger Mexican city means that there is a large floating labor force," Jim Gerber, an economics professor and director of the international business program at San Diego State University, told AOL News.

"The data for Imperial County is skewed by this, such that the layoffs and out-of-work laborers are not actually counted correctly."

Even with the ebb and flow of its working population, things are still pretty bleak in El Centro. Last year, the city's cemetery went into foreclosure.

*



6. Los Angeles, California

Population: 3,849,378

If you don't really care about breathing, Los Angeles is a great place. The metro area that stretches from Long Beach to Riverside has the worst ozone pollution in the country, according to the American Lung Association's State of the Air report for 2010. Along with being tops in ozone pollution, L.A. is ranked third in year-round particle pollution, and fourth in short-term particle pollution.

Ozone is the byproduct of pollutants released by cars, chemical plants, refineries, and other sources. It exists naturally in the upper atmosphere of the Earth, but when emitted at ground level, it's considered a harmful outdoor pollutant. Inhaling ozone can cause wheezing, coughing, chest pain, throat irritation, congestion, and can make people more susceptible to respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency. Think about that next time you drive in Los Angeles, which also lays claim the worst traffic in the country.

Some in Congress are once again trying to push piecemeal immigration reform through the back door. Sen. Diane Feinstein of California attached a farm worker program to the multibillion dollar Iraq war funding bill yesterday which would grant temporary amnesty to 1.3 million farm workers and their families over the next five years.





FORBES:



LOS ANGELES AMONG FORBES’ ‘TOP 10 U.S. CITIES IN FREEFALL’





Forbes has released its list of 'Top 10 U.S. Cities In Freefall', and California has the dubious distinction of appearing thrice. The greater Los Angeles, Riverside and Sacramento areas all made the list, only Florida had more cities represented. In compiling the list, Forbes used six metrics, including the percent the median home price has fallen since its individual peak, how many people were moving in and out of these metros, and percent change in unemployment.

Of California's woes, Forbes writes:

Riverside, Los Angeles and Sacramento are suffering because of the knocks they took after their inflated housing markets began to plummet. Unemployment in the City of Angels has nearly tripled in three years, to 12%. Riverside's unemployment has also ballooned, to 15%. Meanwhile Sacramento saw a 75% drop in new building permits. These are troubling signs for Cali metros, but not surprising. The end of the state's home-price climb triggered more than just a housing slump.

"In California, so many jobs were concentrated in construction," says Michael Fratantoni, vice president of research at the Mortgage Bankers Association, the professional association for real estate financiers. "Jobs building single family homes wound up not being sustainable, and there were a lot of job losses."

The Forbes report comes on the heels of California's most recent jobless report, which put the state's unemployment rate at a record 12.6% for March. However, in what might be an encouraging sign for the region, KPCC reports today that foreclosures in LA County are down 43.5% for the first quarter of 2010 compared to last year.

County’s Monthly Welfare Tab For Illegal Aliens $52 Million

09/07/2010



As the mainstream media focuses on a study that reveals a sharp decline in the nation’s illegal immigrant population, monthly welfare payments to children of undocumented aliens increased to $52 million in one U.S. county alone.

The hoopla surrounding last week’s news that the annual flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S. dropped by two-thirds in the past decade overlooked an important matter; the cost of educating, incarcerating and medically treating illegal aliens hasn’t decreased along with it, but rather skyrocketed to the tune of tens of billions of dollars annually.



THIS FIGURE DOES NOT INCLUDE EXTRA MILLIONS PAID FOR ANCHOR BABIES



Those figures don’t even include the extra millions that local municipalities dish out on welfare payments to the U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants, commonly known as anchor babies. In Los Angeles County alone that figure increased by nearly $4 million in the last year, sticking taxpayers with a whopping $52 million tab to provide illegal immigrants’ offspring with food stamps and other welfare benefits for just one month.

That means the nation’s most populous county, in the midst of a dire financial crisis, will spend more than $600 million this year to provide families headed by illegal immigrants with welfare benefits. In each of the past two years Los Angeles County taxpayers have spent about half a billion dollars just to cover the welfare and food-stamp costs of illegal immigrants. Additionally, the county spends $550 million on public safety and nearly $500 million on healthcare for illegal aliens.

About a quarter of the county’s welfare and food stamp issuances go to parents who reside in the United States illegally and collect benefits for their anchor babies, according to the figures from L.A. County’s Department of Social Services. Nationwide, Americans pay around $22 billion annually to provide illegal immigrants with welfare perks that include food assistance programs such as free school lunches in public schools, food stamps and a nutritional program (known as WIC) for low-income women and their children.

In California, League of United Latin American Citizens has adopted a resolution to declare "California Del Norte" a sanctuary zone for immigrants. The declaration urges the Mexican government to invoke its rights under the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo "to seek third nation neutral arbitration of disputes concerning immigration laws and their enforcement."

Opinion

California must stem the flow of illegal immigrants

The state should go after employers who hire them, curb taxpayer-funded benefits, deploy the National Guard to help the feds at the border and penalize 'sanctuary' cities.



Illegal immigration is another matter entirely. With the state budget in tatters, millions of residents out of work and a state prison system strained by massive overcrowding, California simply cannot continue to ignore the strain that illegal immigration puts on our budget and economy. Illegal aliens cost taxpayers in our state billions of dollars each year. As economist Philip J. Romero concluded in a 2007 study, "illegal immigrants impose a 'tax' on legal California residents in the tens of billions of dollars."

“Through love of having children, we are going to take over.” AUGUSTIN CEBADA, BROWN BERETS, THE LA RAZA FASCIST PARTY



*



The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) is not only one of the wealthiest and most politically powerful militant organizations in the country, it is also notoriously racist and subversive. The group's name, "La Raza," means "The Race," by which they are referring to ethnic Mexicans, or more broadly to "hispanics" or "latinos." And it is quite clear from their decades of vitriolic rhetoric — both spoken and written — that the La Raza activists are trying to engender not only race consciousness amongst hispanic U.S. citizens and Mexican migrants, but also racial militancy and animosity toward "Gringo America."

NCLR: Agents for the Government of Mexico?

Especially troubling is NCLR's leading role in the Fundacion Solidaridad Mexicano Americana (Foundation for Mexican-American Solidarity, FSMA), an organization founded and funded by the government of Mexico and directed by the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Public Education. Both of these ministries have been engaged in efforts aimed at demanding full political rights for illegal aliens in the U.S. and indoctrinating America's Hispanic population in radical, racist La Raza ideology.

60 million Californians by mid-century



Riverside will become the second most populous county behind Los Angeles and Latinos the dominant ethnic group, study says. By Maria L. La Ganga and Sara LinTimes Staff Writers



July 10, 2007



Over the next half-century, California's population will explode by nearly 75%, and Riverside will surpass its bigger neighbors to become the second most populous county after Los Angeles, according to state Department of Finance projections released Monday. California will near the 60-million mark in 2050, the study found, raising questions about how the state will look and function and where all the people and their cars will go. The latest numbers figure the state will be much more crowded than earlier estimates (by nearly 5 million) and that it will take a bit longer than previously thought for Latinos to become the majority of California's population: 2042, not 2038.The figures show that the majority of California's growth will be in the Latino population, said Dowell Myers, a professor of urban planning and demography at USC, adding that "68% of the growth this decade will be Latino, 75% next and 80% after that."That should be a wake-up call for voting Californians, Myers said, pointing out a critical disparity. Though the state's growth is young and Latino, the majority of voters will be older and white — at least for the next decade."The future of the state is Latino growth," Myers said. "We'd sure better invest in them and get them up to speed. Older white voters don't see it that way. They don't realize that someone has to replace them in the work force, pay for their benefits and buy their house."
